Demonetisation may have slowed down most businesses but not domestic air travel – at least for now. November saw almost 90 lakh people (89.6 lakh) flying within the country – highest ever number in a single month. "Allaying all growth fears, domestic passenger traffic has again clocked record growth of 22.4% YoY in the demonetization month of November 2016," aviation minister tweeted on Thursday. In November 2015, 73.2 lakh people flew within the country. Some airlines say the government move to allow people to buy tickets from airport counters using old 500 and 1000 notes till December 2 contributed significantly to this number. People had also made advance bookings from October to mid-January to attend marriages and festivals. But officials across airlines say domestic business will dip from mid-January when lean season kicks in. "The mood is very subdued and expense on travel is the first to be cut in such times. We are not seeing encouraging advance sales for post January 10 period," said a senior airline official. Explaining the surge in November, a senior Air India official said: "We had serpentine queues at our airport counters across India with people using old 500 and 1,000 notes to buy tickets. The airport sales went completely haywire." Almost all airlines had a similar experience.

If you are running out of ideas for your New Year's resolution, consider running. Researchers have found that runners show greater functional connectivity in brain regions important for tasks such as planning and decision-making. “These activities, such as running, that people consider repetitive actually involve many complex cognitive functions – like planning and decision-making – that may have effects on the brain,” said one of the researchers, David Raichlen, associate professor at University of Arizona, at Tucson in the United States. For the study, the researchers compared brain scans of young adults engaged in cross-country running to young adults who do not engage in regular physical activity. Participants were roughly of the same age – 18 to 25 – with comparable body mass index and educational levels. The runners, overall showed greater functional connectivity or
connections between distinct brain regions within several areas of the brain, including the frontal cortex, which is important for cognitive functions such as planning, decision-making and the ability to switch attention between tasks.
31. Research has shown that running
(1) may weaken your heart. (2) could deteriorate your eye-sight.
(3) improves your brain-functioning. (4) has no effect on your health.

Rivers meander. Lakes grow and shrink. Engineers build dams and farmers flood fields. Much of the world’s water is in constant motion. Scientists with the European Commission’s Joint Research Center in Ispra, Italy, working with Google engineers, have used millions of satellite images to illustrate how rivers, lakes and other bodies of water have changed over three decades. The project, which is freely available, will allow researchers to improve climate models and find evidence of the effects of climate change around the world. But even the untrained eye can see the results of drought in the Western United States, for example, or of warming temperatures in the high country north of the Himalayas. The project shows, in more detail than ever before, how nature and people, including human-induced climate change, alter the pathways of water covering about a million square miles of
Earth’s land surface. The project’s scope, as described in a paper published online in the journal Nature, included the entire archive of three Landsat satellites from 1984 to 2015 — about three million high-resolution images, or nearly two quadrillion bytes (1.8 petabytes) of data. The images were processed in the cloud by 10,000 computers using Google’s Earth Engine platform classifying each 100-foot by 100-foot pixel as water or land.
36. Using modern technology, we are now in a position to know
(1) how world's water looked in the past.
(2) how world's water will look tomorrow.
(3) how world's water looked and looks now.
(4) None of these
37. Taking help of computers, we can keep a track of our water resources with
(1) same accuracy as before. (2) better accuracy than before.
(3) much better accuracy and details. (4) not much change as earlier.
