    Rain water or river water while passing through different areas dissolve salts present in the soil to the maximum extent. These salts & minerals have been deposited in the seas & oceans for millions of years & are being still deposited. In addition, volcanoes erupt under the depths of the seas & add salts. Underground springs also add salts to the seas. The water from the seas evaporates continuously leaving behind the salts which remain in greater concentration. Thus, the sea water becomes saline. 97percent of water present on the earth is in seas & oceans. Most of the dissolved salts are present in the sea.

    Consumers are directly affected, so why aren’t they consulted? There is also no information about why prices go up, no reasons and no warnings. There is also no forum for consumers to voice their grievances and any court proceedings are too drawn-out to be of any use. People have cut down their purchase of pulses and fewer persons use edible oils. They have also begun to switch to consumption of millets as they are marginally cheape so said an office-bearer of the Mylapore Traders’ Association. Over the past few months, the monthly bill for a family has gone up from Rs.3,000 to Rs.4,500. Traders say that some customers bargain for a better price as the price rise has hit their budget. “Rise in edible oil price is triggered by oilseed export. Earlier, it was banned, but now mustard, til and groundnut are being exported. Online traders do not buy the products but need only Rs.5,000 for the licence to trade and the government earns a profit because of the surcharge it receives. In March, the market is normally flooded with fresh foodgrains, bringing down the price. Many customers used to buy in bulk, sundry and store the commodities for a year. But now that the prices remain constant throughout the year the practice has died. Unseasonal rains have also contributed to the price rise. Much of our rice comes from Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. If these States ban sale of rice, the prices are bound to go up. In the case of vegetables, the situation is slightly different. Koyambedu Wholesale Traders’ Association secretary said it was not correct to compare vegetable prices as they varied according to season, demand and yield. Good rains bring down the prices. In the past decade, the prices have gone up by at least Rs.2 to Rs.3 a kg as lorry transport charges have doubled and labour cost has gone up. But, compared to 2006, prices of most staple vegetables after this period are lower. Besides pulses, other prominent commodities whose prices have increased in recent months include milk and petrol and diesel. Professor K. Nagaraj of Madras Institute of Development Studies says that in the end it is the poor, particularly those in the unorganised working sector, who are most affected as their earnings are not indexed and do not increase in proportion to inflation. “The cost of luxury goods such as cars has come down and there are plenty of tax exemptions available,” he said. Prof. Nagaraj says that though inflation is blamed on international factors such as the rise in oil, domestic factors are underplayed. “The agrarian crisis in the country has a big part to play. The government has also reduced expenditure on social welfare activities such as the public distribution system and investment in infrastructure. The government is forced to restrict the deficit. It does so by cutting expenditure on capital investment,” he said. The only way out is increased investment in rural agricultural infrastructure, according to Prof Nagaraj. If this trend continues, more low-income families are bound to fall below the poverty line, he adds. Travel costs have also added to the burden of rising costs. More luxury buses are available than the ordinary ones. In Karnataka the bus fares are anywhere near Rs10 for a distance of above 5k.m. where as it is almost Rs3/- or less for the same distance in Chennai. Luxury buses/ Omnibus fare are exorbitant and adds to the inflation cost. Some green vegetables cost very high which triggers the index high, though there are some respites due to the weather conditions prevailing good. Medical treatment, cost of drugs always go up due to lack of Doctors, non availability of beds in Hospitals and increased cost of production of medicines. The non plan expenditure in political circles hit the common man. Terrorism, strikes, labour unrest cause the declines in the production level.

  • What are the advantages of having reflexes control by the spinal cord ?

    Reflexes are quick response to stimuli. for eg: when you touch a hot surface you remove you hand immediately because the motor nerves from the spinal cord give the warning signal. rather than traveling all the way to the brain. reflexes help us to be alert & save us from danger.

    1. A) Plant cells have cell walls, which make them appear rectangular-shaped. B) Plant cells have chlorophyll, the light-absorbing pigment required for photosynthesis. This pigment is contained in structures called chloroplasts, which makes plants appear green. C) Plants cells have a large, central vacuole. While animal cells may have one or more small vacuoles, they do not take up the volume that the central vacuole does In addition, some plant cells (especially those found in seeds) have specialized micro bodies called glyoxysomes. these appear as black dots scattered throughout the cytoplasm. 2. the presence of mammary glands & fur on the body puts the duck bill in the mammals group.

    Best answer: More and less are words that relate to opposing situations. When you can not expect anything more, the less will be gratifying.

    Best answer: More and less are words that relate to opposing situations. When you can not expect anything more, the less will be gratifying. When a person is rescued from the jaws of death, but loses his one finger, the less of a finger will not matter. The feeling that one is safe is more appealing. A beggar who goes empty stomach many days, happen to join a program when some land lord is feeding poor persons. The beggar will feel more even if he gets a marshal of food as he only knows what hunger means. Similarly a sick person goes through hardship for quite some time. When he recovers fully, he will feel more as he is completely cured from the sufferings. A childless couple for long years, when they beget a son will feel more as they were experiencing 'empty feeling' for long years till the birth of a son to them. A student who was not performing well in his studies, goes for a coaching class and put in hard work. When he gets a distinction, he will feel to be on the top of the world. A wealthy man becomes more rich by wrong practices. People will think less of him for all the wrongs he does to become rich. More of riches will also burden him with tax and unaccounted money disproportionate to his income. Less sugar intake is considered to be more for a diabetic patient where as more sweets to a healthy person is considered normal or even less sometimes relatively. A bright student feels much less when he misses the first rank by one mark only. That one mark means so much to him. Another student finds the same one mark means very high for him, as that one mark had saved him from failing in the exam. More or less are terms used to describe opposing situations and more of anything will put them in danger and less of it will give them a relief.

This is just the meaning of physical existence. There are moments which happen to be extraordinary in a man's life. For example should one receive ' Bharat Vibhushan' or ' Bharat Ratna', which is awarded for meritorious deeds, he has every reason to feel proud and these moments would naturally take his breath away which means he gets excited beyond measure. His parents/spouse/children would also feel the efficacy of having born. You can be the captain of the winning team in the world cup. You can be a doctor who saves life from the verge of death. You can save people from drowning or road accidents. You can be a Scientist to invent new things which will help mankind for ever. You can be adventurous and climb the highest peak.
