SAR and Mobile Phone Radiation Hazard. How Aware are College Students in Delhi?

Author Affiliation: Department of Computer Science, Indraprastha College for Women, University of Delhi.

 

Abstract: Mobile phones have become the most common gadget in the world today and are found in the hands of students most of the time. With advancement in mobile technology, usage of mobile phones has increased significantly. Mobile phone functioning uses electromagnetic radiation in the microwave range, which may be harmful to human health. Research has focused on this aspect since the invention of mobile phones and there seems to be a consensus that mobile phone radiations have an impact on human beings. However, no concrete scientific assessment of the impact of mobile phone radiation (MPR) on human beings has been made available. As a result, impact of MPR on human health is a research area requiring greater investigation. The following research contribution attempts to assess the awareness of undergraduate student community about radiation threat posed by the usage of mobile phones. We find that while students are concerned about various specifications of their mobile phones, the knowledge and awareness about MPRs is wanting.

Keywords: mobile phone radiation, human health, student community.

Pregnancy in Women Above Age 35: An Emerging Concern for the Health Sector

First author affiliation: Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Lala Lajpat Rai Memorial Medical College, CCS University, Meerut, India.

 

Abstract: The development and growth of the Indian economy, along with the need and desire to work, are factors which are facilitating women to enter the workforce in large numbers. Women start working in formal workplaces anywhere between the age bracket of 21 and 26 years. The primary objective of most women in the next few years is to establish themselves in their respective fields. This very often leads to late marriages and delayed pregnancies. The latter are sometimes seen as hindrance to career advancement and are postponed until the third decade of a working woman’s life. This paper attempts to bring out the impacts of late pregnancy on the health of women and the fate of their children. The paper highlights the various pregnancy related risks to which women expose themselves by delaying pregnancy beyond 35 years. The need for raising awareness among young women about this issue and adopting women-friendly policies by workplaces has been found to be the need of the hour.

Keywords: maternal health, age, pregnancy risks, workplace.

Analysing Institutional Capacity for Flood Risk Reduction at the Community Level

First Author Affiliation: Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, Thailand.

 

Abstract: Flood related risks have compounded across the globe in the last few years. This is largely due to increasing vulnerability caused by changing climate and rapid urbanisation. This has resulted in making the poor and marginalized sections of society, especially those inhabiting hazardous topographies, more vulnerable to disasters. Although there have been efforts to shift from a response centric approach to a more proactive approach towards disaster risk reduction, institutions continue to face hurdles in implementing disaster related initiatives. To identify these challenges faced by institutions while responding to disasters, the present research collected primary data through field visits, personal interviews and focus group discussions with officials engaged in managing disasters from national to local level in India The affected community was also surveyed. It is suggested that policy makers must consider factors like institutional arrangements, human resources, policy and plans, financial, technical, leadership, perception and awareness programs for enhancing the current state of readiness of institutions to respond to flood disasters.

Keywords: community, disaster management, flood, institutional capacity, disaster preparedness.
