Which one is more harmful: Mosquito or mosquito coil

Dr Nowsheen Sharmin Purabi: Recently a research report shows that, in most of the mosquito coils consumed in Bangladesh contain active ingredient more than acceptable standard rate. As per World Health Organisation, qualities of a good standard coil is safety for human health as well as domestic animals. The highest quantity of applicable insecticide per square meter is also determined by the organisation. But the mosquito coils consumed in Bangladesh are being manufactured and marketed without the compliance with standard criteria and mixing excessive poisonous ingredients. How do we come to the contact of poisonous chemical ingredients? The smoke of the coil withers away and mixes with the air of the house where we breath. They are being mixed with the dusts of home. We swallow them alon...

Isis claims responsibility for deadly suicide attack on Baghdad gas plant

    Militants have launched a suicide attack on a natural gas plant near the Iraqi capital Baghdad, killing at least 11 people and injuring a dozen more. During the assault, which extremist militant group Isis said it had carried out, a car was blown up at the entrance to the facility approximately 20km north of Baghdad. Six people then entered the site with explosive vests and fought security officers, the Reuters news agency reported. Three gas storage tanks were set on fire during the fighting.

Donald Trump: Britain would not be at ‘back of the queue’ for a US trade deal if it quits European Union

    Britain would not be "at the back of the queue" for a new trade deal with America if Britons vote to leave the European Union at the referendum, Donald Trump has said. The Republican candidate for November's US Presidential elections directly contradicted Democratic US President Barack Obama who gave the warning after talks with UK Prime Minister David Cameron. Mr Trump, in an interview with ITV, said: "I don’t want to say front or anything else – I would treat everybody fairly but it would not make any difference to me whether they were in the EU or not. "You would certainly not be at the back of the queue, that I can tell you." Mr Trump confirmed that he would back a Brexit if he had a vote in the referendum on June 23. He said: "I have no preference I have big investmen...

British citizens are eager to leave Britain as willingly to live in Russia

    A new poll reveals that some 80% of Britons would rather immigrate to Russia than remain in the United Kingdom. 78 percent of more than 22,000 British citizens polled by the UK tabloid, The Express, told the paper that they would readily go to Russia in exchange for free land there. This followed reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin was offering 2.5 acres of land for free to people willing to move to the country’s Far East in a bid to boost the area’s economy. One British citizen said, "There's also definitely disillusionment with the UK, with British life. We're all subservient, we won't know what's going on." Another told the paper, “It would be a lot better than living under [PM David] Cameron's and [Labour Party leader Jeremy] Corbyn’s EU law.” Other responden...

Boris Johnson accused of nasty game by comparing EU to Hitler superstate plan

    Boris Johnson is at the centre of a political storm after he compared European Union efforts to build a superstate to Hitler's attempt to dominate the continent. While the former London mayor acknowledged the EU was using "different methods" to the Nazis, his incendiary comparison to the Third Reich drew a furious response from Remain campaigners. Mr Johnson - seen as the de facto leader of the Leave campaign - said the past 2,000 years of European history had been dominated by doomed attempts to unify the continent under a single government to recreate the "golden age" of the Romans. "Napoleon, Hitler, various people tried this out, and it ends tragically. The EU is an attempt to do this by different methods," he said in an interview with The Sunday Telegraph. "But fundam...
