    When Onon took off above the rolling hills of the Khurkh valley in Mongolia last June, researchers had no idea if they would see him alive again. Along with one oriental cuckoo and three other common cuckoos, each fitted with a tiny tracking device, he was about to embark on an epic journey to southern Africa.

    Last month, he was the only bird to return safely with his tracker intact.

    “It’s an amazingly long migration,” says Chris Hewson, senior research ecologist at the British Trust for Ornithology, who said Onon’s 26,000-kilometer round trip was one of the longest journeys recorded by any land bird.

    Onon has not only amazed conservationists but gripped social media across the globe. As coronavirus lockdowns brought the world to a virtual standstill, fans followed online updates from the Mongolia

    Indonesian officials have detected over a hundred hotspots that have the potential to grow into a full-blown forest fire — the same kind of fire that erupted in Central Kalimantan in 2019.

    The fires were so intense that it turned the skies red and blanketed the majority of Southeast Asia in smog, or what we know better as haze.

    It was the worst since 2015, around 1.6 million hectares of forests were burnt down. This time there are growing concerns that the country would not be capable enough to control these fires due to most of their efforts and funds being routed to the coronavirus efforts.

    Central Kalimantan disaster mitigation chief Darliansyah said that officials detected over 700 hotspots around the region. These hotspots were detected using a satellite,

    Biotechnology tops the checklist of most popular science courses for a lot of students in India, because of the profitable profession scope it affords. Construction builds two varieties of constructions and these embody buildings and heavy engineering structures. Expertise is used in both the planning process of these structures and it is also used throughout the building process. Buildings are enclosures to protect or present safety to people, their products and equipments from getting damages from exterior components and these can embrace residential properties and ware homes. But heavy engineering buildings are principally commercial buildings like Sky Scrappers, Shopping malls, Sports activities stadiums and so forth… Below I’ve listed a summarized listing of how expertise is used in development.

    Studying in regards to the job and getting fingers-on coaching in the area can look nice on a resume, as well as provide college students a chance to determine what space …

    Info and Communications Know-how (ICT) has an essential function on the planet since we are now within the information age era. The Institute of Biotechnology is at the forefront of basic and utilized analysis, fixing hypothesis-pushed questions increasing from molecules to organs and from organisms to surroundings. We foresee that future challenges demand profound understanding of organic processes and their dynamics. Our mission is to train new generations of specialists appearing globally. The invention of the printing press was taken place in roughly 1450 ADVERT, by Johannes Gutenburg, a German inventor. The invention of printing press was a chief developmental issue within the history of educational technology to convey the instruction as per the necessity of the complex and superior-know-how cultured society.
