The development of city nala in Quetta.

The development of “CITY NALA” of Quetta.

A boy fell in to city nala and died couple of days ago. It got the attention of the media.

This part of city nala is located between hudda bazar and shahbaz town. Near Faqir abad near Jamia Masjid near mano jan road.

This small route in front of mano jan road can become an interchange.

If only this small part of that Nalla is covered it will become a hub for traffic. it will become a better link from hudda bazar ko koyla pahatak fly over bridge. This will also benefit the new cantonment board school that is built in Phase 3 and the new shops. Phase 3 has only one driving exit right now.  it will remove one of the bottle neck and help traffic flow.

It will also develop mano jan road which connects spinni road fly over bridge. The expansion of sabzal road also connects to this route. Ayub sports complex is at walking distance from this point. Merck marker the multinational pharmaceutical company is also close by.

City Nala has many parts.  it once carried clean water, now sewage.

 

We will be writing it in further details about this Nala .

Your feedback is important. send us the fairy tails of city nala.

Shahbaz Town

In Quetta city and suburb areas the trend of housing schemes and flats has been increment.

In Quetta city and suburb areas the trend of housing schemes and apartments has been increment.

 

Some of the housing schemes and buildings needs improvement ‘facilities are scarce.

The demand to introduce housing schemes on governmental level is rising.

 

Quetta

In the provincial capital due to the increased population, in the middle and suburb areas of the city the construction of the housing schemes and flats have been trending. While the sources of the Metropolitan Corporation Quetta reported that most of the housing schemes have been constructing with out the approval of the Metropolitan Corporation, due to which on one hand the rules of Corporation have been broken and on the other hand the taxes that are not collected cause the corporation the deficit of millions yearly. while in some of the housing schemes living facilities are equal to none. on the other hand the increasing rental prices in the middle areas make living in the rent houses impossible and the citizens are migrating to the suburb areas due to which the construction of flats have been increase gradually. Likely in the suburb areas housing schemes are also constructed the citizens requested the government to announce housing schemes on governmental level that the poor people have shelter for living. The government must announce new housing schemes.

Water shortage in Balochistan

Save water stay healthy.

 

This year the weather is good. There has been a long rainy season. it is still continuing even in April. There is water visible in Hanna Lake. The weather tv channels are predicting more rains. but there must be general awareness of saving the water.

 

Pakistan loses water worth 21 billion, in the ocean every year. says a report published in 2017. 

With a first glance a visitor can understand the green lands on google maps aerial view. Those locations which are green has properly utilized their water. In the past earlier population resided on the banks of rivers. Over the time people built irrigation systems. There are examples where people constructed long canals in hard conditions. countries are using huge amount of energy to operate upstream shifting of water. generators, pumps and dams are used in the process.

Water reservoirs are ending. The water shortage in Baluchistan is getting worse.

Stopping illegal water boring wells and the making of dams is important says “Pakistan council for research on water reservoirs”.

 

There will be serious water crisis by 2025. Baluchistan will suffer the worst water shortage. Underground water reservoirs are ending. Cultivation is decreasing. There is a danger of drought. Says PCRWR. The council also warned that water shortage will get worse by 2025. According to a research carried out by this research council, Pakistan was added to the list of countries where population is more than the water reservoirs in 1990.  The situation got worse in 2005. Now the authorities need to take measures. Make dams. Stop the wasting of water.

 

5600 cubic meter water was available per person in 1947 now its 1000 cubic meters. By 2025 it will decrease to 800 cubic meters.

The water shortage is becoming a bigger problem than electricity shortage.

Renewable Energy

Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is that kind of energy that comes directly or indirectly from natural resources. For example, Solar energy, wind energy, Geo thermal, tidal or wave power. below are different kinds of clean energy explained in detail.

 

Solar energy 

The most popular and fast growing renewable energy is the solar energy. The process of the energy takes place with the help of special type of solar cells made up of thin layers of crystalline silicon that depends on the effect of the  photovoltaic(PV) to absorb protons and convert them into electrons with the help of the crystalline solar cells.

Another form of solar power is the solar thermal power. This type of solar consists of mirrors and lenses to concentrate large area of the light coming from the directly from the sun.

In the late 1980s when the photovoltaic power generating system was introduce at that time the power was only used for small medium sized operations and only for use at homes. But when the commercial concentrated solar power plant has become common and popular, then the energy does not stay only for small uses but were used for industrial uses.

Till 2050 the international Energy Agency claimed that solar power with STE and PV operations will constitute over 25% of the market. It will make solar power the world’s largest source of energy.

China and India has the world’s largest installation of the solar cells in the world.

 

Wind energy

Mankind has been using wind as a source of energy from hundred of years to run their sails, to power their windmills. The use of wind for the generation of electricity has become the subject of research since 19th centaury.

clean wind energy

As compared to all the other sources of renewable energy, wind energy is reliable, cheap and steady.

The production of the energy takes place with the help of wind turbines. The wind turbines consist of tower (base of the turbine build to support the structure of the turbine),

Blades (the blades are installed like fan that rotate with the flow of wind and cause the rotor to spin), rotor (combination of blades and hub), pitch (turns blades out of the wind to control the speed of rotor), generator (produce 60-cycle AC electricity within turbine when the rotor rotates), controller (starts and stops the turbine from working according to the condition of wind), YAW drive (controls and change the direction of the turbine with the change of the direction of the wind).

The global wind energy council and Greenpeace international came together to publish a report. This report stated that ‘worldwide wind power can provide as much as 25 to 30%of global electricity by 2050. Commercial installation in more than 90 countries has the total capacity of 218 gigawatts (GW), providing about 3% of global supply.

 

Geothermal

The produce by the heat in the earth crust is known as geothermal energy.

Geothermal energy has two kinds

Pure Thermal Power

 

Direct geo thermal

Indirect geothermal

 

Direct geothermal

In this type of geothermal, when hot water is extracted form the earth. Then the water is pumped into a heat exchanger which transfers heat from the water into the house or buildings heating system.

  

In direct geothermal

When heat is extracted from the earth crust, then it is send to a turbine, where the hot steam rotate the turbine, the turbine activates a generator that produces alternative current (AC).

Geothermal energy is considered reliable because the earth contains 1031 joules worth that flows naturally to the surface by conduction at the rate of 44.2 tera watts (TW) more than double humanity’s current energy consumption.

The countries that generate more than 15 percent of their electricity from geothermal sources are El Salvador, Kenya, Philippines, Iceland and Costa Rica.

 

Tidal power or wave energy

Like the wind energy the tidal energy is said to a potential source of renewable energy, because the blowing wind produce tides in the water. Like windmills, tide mills have been constructed in the middle age, these tide mills were constructed on the rivers and streams, and the water was stored in large ponds and as the tides went out they turned water wheels that produces mechanical energy to mill grain. This process was used till the late 19th centaury. After the 19th centaury the process of falling water and spinning turbines was introduce U.S and Europe.

pure tidal energy

Tidal power has suffered from high cost and limited availability wit sufficient tidal ranges.

The process of producing tidal energy is done by Tidal energy generators. These generators were installed underwater in those areas where high tidal movements are found in large amount. These turbines are designed such that when tides pass above them the catch their kinetic energy and produce electricity.
