Bhopal Municipal Corporation civic body to deploy a e-governance project which is to cost Rs 10.75 crore in association with SAP for the betterment in quality of life. This project second of this nature costing Rs 10.75 crore project which is including maintenance cost of nearly Rs 4 crore over a period of five years will bring the municipality to bring sea change in quality of life of its citizens through better administration and citizen services. Technology at its best the IT solutions from SAP to automate, aqnd govern public service offerings for BMC.
These civic services are available in Hindi, these solutions help BMC manage and streamline day-to-day affairs with ease viz include issuing marriage certificates, birth and death registrations, city infrastructure development and open space management, including roads, parking, traffic signals, community halls and schools.The solutions too streamline permits, health services, water supply, lake conservation and tax collection, among other services. While briefing media Tejaswi Naik, commissioner, Bhopal Municipal Corporation, said: “With the adoption of this technology, we are quickly transforming into one of India’s first Municipal Corporations to formulate, promote and leverage technology at a grassroots level for the benefit of citizens in general and, specifically, the underprivileged.”
His ideation to explain the media questions on some critical moot points on governance were praiseworthy to bring city management to next order.

Scientists have found that the sun’s outer atmosphere, or corona, can reach temperatures 1,000 times higher than those at the surface of the star, but solar physicists previously had no explanation for why this temperature discrepancy is so great. Now, researchers think the relatively tiny flares may be the “smoking gun” that explains this mysterious cosmic occurrence.
The new study provides the first direct proof that nanoflares keep the sun’s corona at a temperature of millions of degrees, far hotter than the sun’s visible surface, which is about 6,000 degrees Kelvin (10,000 degrees Fahrenheit). [The Biggest Solar Flares of 2014: Photos]
Scientists think that smaller solar flares called “nanoflares” are responsible for the extreme heating of the sun’s outer atmosphere.
“The nanoflare model has been around for a while,” said Jeffrey Brosius, a solar physicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland “With better instrumentation, we were hoping to find the evidence that was predicted by the model.”
Nanoflares happen because of huge magnetic fields located throughout the sun’s corona. These loops are anchored in the photosphere, the sun’s visible surface, but move around due to turbulence in the photosphere. Sometimes the field lines cross, and they become twisted and tangled.
When this happens in the presence of plasma, current sheets form, and the “stress” builds until the magnetic field “breaks,” releasing lots of energy very quickly. This kind of crossing of magnetic fields can happen thousands of times a second over the whole solar surface, and this transfers energy to the plasma in the corona. That energy transfer could explain the corona’s extra heat
