Health

What is Health ?

Health is the level of functional or metabolic efficiency of a living organism. In humans, it is the general condition of a person’s mind and body, usually meaning to be free from illness, injury or pain (as in "good health" or "healthy").[1] The World Health Organization (WHO) defined health in its broader sense in 1946 as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."[2][3] Although this definition has been subject to controversy, in particular as lacking operational value and because of the problem created by use of the word "complete," it remains the most enduring.[4][5] Other definitions have been proposed, among which a recent definition that correlates health and personal satisfaction.[6][7] Classification systems such as the WHO Family of International Classifications, including the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and the International Classification of Diseases (ICD), are commonly used to define and measure the components of health.

Boating sports such as hovercrafts sports can improve your health a lot, systematic activities to prevent or cure health problems and promote good health in humans are undertaken by health care providers. Applications with regard to animal health are covered by the veterinary sciences. The term "healthy" is also widely used in the context of many types of non-living organizations and their impacts for the benefit of humans, such as in the sense of healthy communities, healthy cities or healthy environments. In addition to health care interventions and a person’s surroundings, a number of other factors are known to influence the health status of individuals, including their background, lifestyle, and economic and social conditions; these are referred to as "determinants of health."

What is Firewire ?

What is Firewire ?

The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and isochronous real-time data transfer. It was developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s by Apple, who called it FireWire. The 1394 interface is comparable to USB though USB has more market share.[1] Apple first included FireWire in some of its 1999 models, and most Apple computers since the year 2000 have included FireWire ports, though, as of 2013, only the 800 version (IEEE-1394b).[2]

The interface is also known by the brand i.LINK monk (Sony), and Lynx (Texas Instruments). IEEE 1394 replaced parallel SCSI in many applications, because of lower implementation costs and a simplified, more adaptable cabling system. The 1394 standard also defines a backplane interface, though this is not as widely used.

IEEE 1394 is the High-Definition Audio-Video Network Alliance (HANA) standard connection interface for A/V (audio/visual) component communication and control.[3] FireWire is also available in wireless, fiber optic, and coaxial versions using the isochronous protocols.

Sports and Movies

Sports and Movies

Sport is all forms of usually competitive physical activity which, through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing entertainment to participants, and in some cases, spectators.Hundreds of sports exist, from those requiring only two participants, through to those with hundreds of simultaneous participants, either in teams or competing as individuals.
Tennis Sports are generally recognised as activities which are based in physical athleticism or physical dexterity, with the largest major competitions such as the Olympic Games admitting only sports meeting this definition, and other organisations such as the Council of Europe using definitions precluding activities without a physical element from classification as sports. However, a number of competitive, but non-physical, activities claim recognition as mind sports. The International Olympic Committee recognises both chess and bridge as bona fide sports, and SportAccord, the international sports federation association, recognises five non-physical sports, although limits the amount of mind games which can be admitted as sports.

There are many movies on sports too.

How Aam Aadmi Party would reduce power tariffs in Delhi

How Aam Aadmi Party would reduce power tariffs in Delhi

This is a long stuff, but you ought to read this if you wish to understand why power tariffs in Delhi are increasing sharply.

Facts indicate an active and unholy collusion between Sheila Dikshit government and power Distribution Companies (popularly known as DISCOMS).

1. Electricity was privatized in Delhi in the year 2002. Mrs Sheila Dikshit, at that time, said that since the distribution losses in Delhi were very high, electricity was being privatized. The private companies would bring in efficiency and reduce distribution losses. Once distribution losses were brought down, the benefits would be passed on to the consumers and electricity rates in Delhi would be reduced. In 2002, distribution losses were more than 50%. Today these losses have been brought down to 15%. The private companies must be given credit for that. This has resulted in savings worth thousands of crores. But these savings have not been passed on to the consumers. Power Tariffs, rather than being reduced, have been increased manifold in the last few years. Where have those thousands of crores of rupees gone, which were saved as a result of reduced distribution losses?

2. Delhi Electricity Regulatory Commission (DERC) fixes power tariffs in Delhi. In 2010, Mr Brijender Singh was the Chairperson of DERC. He was a very honest man. The companies approached him saying that they had incurred a loss of Rs 630 crores and power tariffs in Delhi should be increased. When he studied their accounts, he discovered that the companies had actually made huge profits of Rs 3577 crores. So, he drafted an order saying that the power tariffs in Delhi ought to be decreased by 23%. We have a copy of his draft order. He further wrote that the profits of these companies were likely to increase manifold in the coming years and power tariffs in Delhi would decrease substantially in subsequent years. This order was supposed to be passed on 5th May 2010. Just a day before that, Mrs Sheila Dikshit wrote a letter to Mr Brijender Singh on 4th May 2010, directing him not to pass that order. We have a copy of that letter. Why did she do that? What was her interest? Prashant Bhushan, National Executive member of Aam Aadmi party, challenged Mrs Dikshit’s intervention in Delhi High Court. After about an year, we won the case. Delhi High Court passed very strong strictures against Mrs Dikshit and DISCOMS.

3. But Mr Brijender Singh retired by then. Mrs Dikshit appointed a very pliable person called Mr P D Sudhakar as the next Chairperson. Mr Sudhakar immediately accepted whatever was presented to him by the companies without verifying their claims. He accepted that the companies were making losses and started increasing power tariffs in Delhi. Since he assumed office in 2011, power tariffs have been increased by 150%.

4. DISCOMS have fudged their accounts and are creating artificial losses by adopting several methods.

a. Delhi is a power surplus state. DISCOMS have created several sister companies. The surplus power is sold by DISCOMS to their sister concerns at prices much lower than purchase price, thus creating huge artificial losses. The sister concerns, in turn, sell this power at much higher rates in the market.

b. The DISCOMs do not account for revenues from several entities. For instance, in 2008, they showed revenues from Delhi Jal Board and Delhi International Airport as zero. Obviously that cannot be true. Delhi Jal Board and Delhi International Airport consume huge quantities of electricity. So, where did the revenues received from them go?

c. In 2011, in a test check, it was revealed that these companies were showing zero revenues from almost 10% of Delhi’s consumers. When these consumers were approached, they said they had paid their bills. Then where did their money go? Are these companies taking revenues from several consumers in some undisclosed accounts?

5. There are many such instances which show that the accounts of DISCOMS are fudged and cannot be relied upon. Many RWAs and several Delhiites have demanded that no hike in power tariffs should take place till their accounts are audited by CAG. Mrs Dikshit says that she is ready but the companies are not agreeing to it. How can the companies refuse to get their accounts audited? This creates a serious suspicion that all the allegations are perhaps true. Besides, how can the Chief Minister be so helpless before power distribution companies? What is the reason for Mrs Dikshit’s helplessness? Why doesn’t she cancel the licenses of those companies which are refusing to get their accounts audited?

6. A few months back, the DISCOMS have approached DERC saying that they have incurred a loss of Rs 20,000 crores and they want further increase in power tariffs. Since this is election year, the government is not increasing tariffs right now. But immediately after elections, you should be prepared for a steep increase in power tariffs if Mrs Dikshit is voted back to power. How much would be the increase? There are 35 lakh consumers in Delhi. So, the increase could be an average of Rs 5000 per family per month.

7. Two of the three DISCOMS in Delhi are owned by Mr Anil Ambani. Have Ambani brothers ever done any loss making business? When Mr Anil Ambani started incurring a small loss in Delhi Airport metro line, he simply abandoned that project. Then why is he still supplying power in Delhi despite an annual loss of Rs 20,000 crores? Obviously, the accounts are fudged. Actually, he is making huge profits. He also could have been assured by Congress (and perhaps BJP too?) of steep power tariff hike post elections.

What will Aam Aadmi Party government do?

We will immediately order audits of DISCOMS. Those DISCOMS who do not agree, their licenses would be cancelled. The decision to increase or reduce tariffs would be taken only after audit report is received. Our estimates indicate that post audit, power tariffs would reduce by at least half of their present levels.

If you have any ideas, feel free to write to me.

Warm regards,
Arvind Kejriwal
