WORLD OZONE DAY & OUR COMMITMENTS Every year, September 16 is observed as World Ozone Day. The celebration of this day is made to pay our homage to the ozone layer, that saves our earth from the harmful ultravoilet radiation of the Sun. The life on the Earth, depends on the energy provided by the Sun in the form of various radiations. Out of total energy received by the Earth, 35% is reflected back to the space by the clouds, dust-particles and ice particles present in the atmosphere. 14% of the energy, which comes in the form of ultra violet radiation gets absorbed by the ozone layer, thus saving the earth from the harmful effects like over warming of the Earth or diseases like cancer. 34% of the energy is radiated back from the Earth in the form of direct solar radiation and 17% radiated back from the Earth in the form of terrestrial radiation. The part of the energy radiated back from the Earth unabsorbed is called Albedo. Average Albedo ranges between 29% to 34%. Because of the artificial cover provided by the

green house gases the Earth surface is unable to reflect the total energy thus gets heated. So lesser the Albedo more will be the temperature on the Earth and vice-versa. Besides this the tarnishing of ozone layer provides the way to ultra violet rays to enter in the Earth’s atmosphere which can cause great destruction, catastrophies (famines, droughts etc.) and diseases like cancer. The fact that the density of ozone layer reduced considerably making the situation more horrified. (from 1956 to 1970 the density of the ozone layer was nearly 280 to 325 doveson which in 1994 got reduced to mere 94 doveson. The density has been on a decline since then). The gases which are responsible for increasing the Earth temperature artificially are called green house gases which includes carbon di-oxide, methane, chloro floro carbon (CFC), sulphur hexa-floride, nitrous oxide, perflorocarbon. These gases are called green house gases because they increase the temperature in the glass (Contd. on Page 3)

IMPACT OF EMOTIONS ON PRODUCTIVITY The impact of emotions on productivity is well documented. Our individual traits, mood swings, and positive or negative emotions not only affect all aspects of our own job performance, but also the behaviour and emotions of those we interact with. Feelings can be broadly categorized into emotions, mood and dispositions. Emotions are short-term response to stimuli, while moods linger over a relatively longer period of time. Personality traits or disposition on the other hand define a person’s overall approach to life. Emotions, moods and personality traits, all have a role to play in workplace productivity, moral, and customer satisfaction. It is now believed that our brain keeps track of the positive and negative moments we experience during each day, and the resulting score contributes to our mood. In other words, our overall mood is in effect defined by the number of positive versus negative moments experienced during the course of a day-the more positive interactions we have during the day, the more cheerful we are, and vices versa. Over the past decade, scientists have explored the impact of positive-to-negative interaction, and have found that this ratio could be used to accurately predict behaviour ranging from workplace performance to the possibility of divorce in personal life. Emotions are needed to provide inspirational leadership. However, excessive expression of emotion-positive or negative-can do more harm than good. Both positive and negative emotions have a role to play in the workplace. Negative emotions can be traced in the primeval survival instinct latent in all humans. Negative emotions like anger, fear or disgust spur us to immediate action, and, under dangerous or extreme circumstances such a fight or flight mechanism can ensure survival. In the workplace, this evolutionary ingrained response to negative emotions limits us to instinctive and reactive response to stimuli- with little room for logic, consensus or expansive, creative thinking. Negative thinking is oriented towards achieving or averting immediate consequences, rather than focusing on long term consideration. Positive emotion, on other hand, create a more expansive and inclusive range of behaviours with a win/win bias. They encourage more creative and generative thinking, aid exchange of ideas and creation of consensus. Research suggests that positive people tend to do better in the workplace, and it isn’t just because people love having them around when compared to cynical or negative people. Positive people tend to have better cognitive abilities, have greater focus and accuracy, and are better at generating innovative ideas when compared to cynical or negative people. They also have better social networks and are more tolerant of diverse ideas and opinions. Emotional intelligence is a much talked about buzzword in the business circle today. Because knowledge of emotions can be valuable data in navigating critical and noncritical situations in the workplace on a day-to-day basis, business can greatly benefit by training employees in emotional management skills and techniques. People who are cued in to the emotions, moods and dispositions of those around them

will find it extremely easy to manage situations and people to achieve desired outcomes. Here are some ways in which you can dull the impact of negativity that sometimes runs rampant in the workplace, and infuse a positive sheen to your day. The mood you bring with you to work has stronger effect on the day’s mood- and on work performance than mood changes caused by events in the workplace. When people experienced positive mood swings at the start of the day, they tend to remain happy and efficient throughout the day. So be sure to come to work with a smile on your face and nice words for everyone you meet. Your smile and good mood will soon catch up with those around you. Make eye contact with people, be it coworkers or customers, when you talk with them. Make your interaction a positive one. Watch out for body language and negative expression. Subtle display of emotion, such as a quick frown, can have an effect as well, even if you don’t think it was noticeable. Nine out of 10 people say they are more productive when they are around positive people. Do not allow yourself to dip from the negative emotions of people around you. Increase your own awareness about the frequency of your own negative comments. Shine a light on what’s right, and try reinforcing positive attitudes and behaviour of your peers, rather than focusing on mistakes and failures. If you must make one negative comment, then reaffirm your statement with at least five positive comments. This is thought to be the magic ratio to infuse the right balance between positivism and productivity. A word of caution ... Don’t overdo it, for it may well reverse the effects. Studies indicate that more than 13 positive comments per negative comment could actually have a damaging effect on productivity and performance, as people may tend to get smug and complacent amidst all that positivism.

house made artificially to provide higher temperature in colder areas which in turn helps plants that are native to warmer climates, to grow in the hilly areas. The gases like CFC, or carbon di-oxide have been used in the modern appliances like air-conditioners, refrigerators, fire extinguishers etc. So its looks like where there is more industrialisation there is greater chance of causing harm to the ozone layer. But the reality is unbelievable and horrifying. Unbelievable because the ozone hole was discovered in the polar regions where there is negligible industrialisation and horrifying because this reality can cause more destruction in less time. The reason behind this reality is that the polar stratosphere clouds provide basis for chlorine molecules (present in the CFC) to act freely in the colder regions (as in polar regions) and in the presence of sunlight in the Antarctica region the chlorine molecules attacks on the ozone molecules (O3) and kill them in the process. More damaging fact is this molecule could have a life of 45 years to 250 years. This is also causing the glaciers to melt. The recent report of the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that Earth’s temperature has increased by 0.74% in the past hundred years. Its effects are

disastrous like: Unexpected increase in the sea level that can submerge low lying regions including UK The melting of glaciers like Himadri in India, which will first result in floods and then a long lasting drought Exposure to ultra-violet rays can increase the risk of cancers Unexpected climatic changes USA which pretends itself as a global leader, is also the biggest producer of these harmful green-house gases (nearly 30%) but hasn’t signed the Kyoto Protocal - a legally binding global treaty for reducing the emission of these gases. To efficiently deal with this current fearsome situation, we have to take stringent steps. Some are:1. Save trees as they save life by inhailing harmful gas carbondi-oxide. 2. More sustainable behaviour in our daily lives like saving energy at every step. 3. To use technologies which are environment-friendly, like bio-fertilizers. 4. The expansion of carbon trading by the developed countries from developing countries. 5. Globalize the technologies to the under developed nations that supports the climate. Let us act now before it is too late.

CAUSES & DISEASES Resentment, Criticism, Guilt and Fear, Keep away these from the Life, my dear.

BK Avadhesh, Shantivan, Abu Road

Otherwise unnecessary you have to shed the tear, So learn the art of moulding attitude and to bear. Resentment long held, can eat away the body & brings cancer very near, Criticism as permanent habit leads to arthiritis in short term here. Guilt always looks for punishment and punishment creates painful atmosphere, Fear and tension can produces baldness, ulcers, sorefeet and stops to be cheer. It is widely experienced that forgiving & releasing resentment can make most diseases clear, Over look total ill-past and utilise present, every year after year. Sustain the work on loving the self and send the joyous, prosperous and healthy song to the ear, And avail the absolute bliss and fortitude, life long, every moment now and here.

42nd Engineers’ Day 2009 Engineering Solutions to Combat Climate Change September 15 is a memorable day in the annals of the engineering fraternity in the country in general and of ‘The Institution of Engineers (India) in particular as on this day 147 years ago, Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya, the towering personality in the history of Indian engineering, was born. In recognition of his monumental services towards national development and for the cause of engineering, Sir Visvesvaraya was honoured by the country’s highest civilian honour, the Bharat Ratna, in the year 1955. The Institution of Engineers (India) observes September 15 every year as the Engineers’ Day. A central theme of national importance is chosen every year and deliberated at various State and Local Centres as well as the Overseas Chapters of the Institution to educate the society and the engineering community as well. This year the Council of the Institution had selected the theme ‘Engineering Solutions to Combat Climate Change’. Climate change has become serious threat to society affecting environment, terrestrial ecosystems and biodiversity. Mankind’s relentless and ever increasing consumption of fossil fuels is the major cause behind climate change. Our dependency on carbon based fuels has resulted in rapid increase of atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases, and the outcome is global warming resulting in more frequent severe weather conditions and damage to many natural ecosystems. Carbon dioxide, Methane, Nitrous Oxide prime green house gases in which Carbon dioxide plays a major role in global warming & pollution. In 1750, CO2 in atmosphere was 281 ppm, which has been reached to 368 ppm recently which shows 31% increase than it was before industrial revolution. The scientists fear that it may be greater than 970 ppm at the end of century. Carbon footprint which is a measure of the impact of human activities on the amount of greenhouse gases needs to be radically reduced. Companies, products, services have to bear the social responsibility of kicking out carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Combating climate change requires the commercialization of low emission technologies in various sections of application. The engineering fraternity has a special role to play to neutralize the adverse effects on the climate. Efforts should continue for producing power using

solar photovoltaic, second generation biofuels, fourth generation nuclear fuels and developing smarter grid capacity for transmission. Conservation of water, efficient management of solid wastes and generating wealth from them by recycling process, figuring out the hot spots of energy consumption and associated CO emissions are some of the key areas where the engineers can apply their specialized knowledge for combating climate change. Growth without GHG emission is the need of the day. Application of green technologies, phasing out GHG producing sources and combating the existing effects on climate are the areas of emphasis if the globe is to be saved from extinction. Conservation of natural resources by adopting strategies for reducing, reusing, recycling and applying engineering solutions for combating emission of GHG is the need which requires addressing by engineers. In this context, an International Conference on Combating Challenges of Climate Change was organised at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi on 7th & 8th Feb.2009. It was inaugurated by Hon’ble Mr Kapil Sibbal, Union Minister of Earth Science and Science & Technology, Govt. of India. Roughly over 1150 delegates - Scientists, Engineers & Technocrats from different organisations, institutes, industries, R & D centres from India & abroad participated. For detail report & photographs, kindly refer SEW’s NEW’s April-June 2009 issue. 2

An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates. St. Peter checks his dossier and says, "Ah, you're an engineer you are in the wrong place." So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in. Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After a while, they've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is a pretty popular guy. One day God calls Satan on the telephone and says with a sneer, "So, how's it going down there in hell?" Satan replies, "Hey, things are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next.” God replies, "What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake - he should never have gotten down there; send him up here." Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him." God says, "Send him back up here or I will sue." Satan laughs uproariously and answers, "Yeah, right. And just where are YOU going to get a lawyer?"
