A low-pressure system developing in the Bay of Bengal is likely to result in substantial rainfall across Gangetic West Bengal over the upcoming weekend, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said. The weather agency said in a bulletin on Thursday that this low-pressure area is likely to intensify into a well marked low-pressure system, influenced by a cyclonic pattern situated over Myanmar and the Bay of Bengal within the next 48 hours. This development is anticipated to usher in a fresh bout of heavy rainfall for the eastern regions of the country. The IMD further observed that the conditions are becoming favourable for the Southwest Monsoon to gradually retreat from additional portions of Northwest and adjoining Westcentral India within the next two to three days.

The second GOP presidential debate took place in California on Wednesday night and featured seven candidates competing for the Republican nomination to challenge President Joe Biden in the 2024 election. The debate was marked by intense exchanges and clashes among the contenders. One of the most contentious moments occurred during a heated exchange between former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, focusing on the topic of TikTok and its connection to China. Ramaswamy, who recently joined the popular social media platform, defended his decision by saying that it allowed him to connect with the next generation of young Americans where they are most active. Haley, however, expressed strong disapproval of his argument. She criticised him for supporting a platform that she deemed perilous and a threat to national security in the United States. Additionally, she accused him of aiding China in pharmaceutical production and questioned his policy expertise. Dig deeper

A recent study, published in the journal Nature Portfolio, revealed that Indians are consuming an average of 8 grams of salt per day, significantly surpassing the recommended daily limit of 5 grams. This excessive salt intake raises significant concerns about our susceptibility to various health issues, including high blood pressure, stomach ulcers, and cardiovascular problems, while also impacting kidney function. Although the body does require a certain amount of salt for essential functions, consistently exceeding this limit can contribute to the development of chronic diseases. Therefore, it is vital to reduce salt intake by opting for homemade meals instead of processed foods like snacks, canned vegetables, pickles, biscuits, and potato chips, all of which are laden with high levels of sodium that can potentially harm our health.
