Another name change in UP, Cattle pounds to be called Gau Sanrakshan Kendras

Another name change in UP, Cattle pounds to be called Gau Sanrakshan Kendras Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered the renaming of ‘kanji houses” (cattle pounds, where stray cattle is impounded) as ‘Gau Sarankshan Kendras’ (cow protection centres) across the state, continuing the name changing spree by his government that includes places and schemes in the state. In a late evening video conference on Wednesday, Adityanath directed district magistrates to ensure that all stray animals were sent to cow shelters by January 10.

This is a concept. This is only a concept. That's Alfa's story at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, and it's sticking to it. Never mind that every panel, crease, glass surface, and even the 21-inch "phone-dial" wheels and tires look production ready.

OK, the hollow camera "mirrors" and light-pulsing interior panels present production red lights, and having a rear "bumper" inset from the farthest aft point on the fetching bee-stinger hatch will be bad for the pole test.

Other than that, the Alfa Romeo Tonale would appear to be a concept in name only.

The brand desperately needs to tap into the wildly expanding compact crossover market, so don't expect this concept's road to production to be particularly long or winding. Speaking of long, winding roads, the name Tonale refers to yet another fabulous Italian mountain pass—this one crosses the Rhaetian Alps, connecting Lombardy and Trentino.

Alfa Romeo is breaking into the electric car world at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show revealing the new concept of the Alfa Romeo Tonale compact SUV. The Tonale is the first plug-in hybrid and the first compact utility vehicle of Alfa Romeo .

What is concept-like is the amount of actual information disclosed about the Tonale, apart from the fact that it's said to feature a plug-in hybrid drivetrain as suggested by the modified Alfa biscione logo, in which the snake body terminates in an electric plug, with a little lightning bolt in place of the tongue (pressing this icon on the upper rear door frames opens the rear door electrically—a feature we would endorse ditching for production).

We're also told the rear axle is electrically powered. Representatives wouldn't even confirm that it rides on FCA's "small-wide" platform (Jeep Renegade and Compass, Fiat 500X—and it almost certainly does) let alone talk engines, transmissions, or battery sizes.

Penned at Alfa's Centro Stile in Turin, it incorporates loads of Alfa design cues and clearly appears related to the Stelvio without any hint of the same-salume-different-length design aesthetic.

The trademark Scudetto grille is there, but this time it's flanked by three-plus-three LED headlights evocative of those on the SZ and Brera. The shoulder line rises and falls, suggesting the equivalent line on the Giulia GT Junior coupe. The three-plus-three lighting signature is echoed at the rear.

Inside, the four-place interior (sure to sprout a fifth seat belt in production) is designed to suggest muscular tension with the contrast of warm leather and Alcantara against cold aluminum, as well as the aforementioned pulsing ambient lighting.

The DNA button's Dynamic mode will summon full power from the front engine and rear electric motor, while an E-mozione button on the touchscreen further tailors throttle settings, braking response, and steering feel.

'Romeo and Juliet' give hope for the Sehuencas water frog.
Sehuencas water frogs, like other amphibians, have been devastated by the chytrid fungus. A frog that scientists named “Romeo” was the last known of his kind and had stopped singing for a mate. But recently, scientists discovered “Juliet” and four other Sehuencas water frogs hiding in the Bolivian cloud forest — and Romeo’s song is back. Sofia Barrón Lavayen, the manager of captive breeding at the K'ayra Center at the Museum of Natural History in Cochabamba, Bolivia, says Romeo had been alone in the center since 2009, so she created and led the project to search for a mate.
