Modified multiday fishing vessel launched to reduce postharvest loss
COLOMBO (News 1st) – The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the Ministry of Fisheries launched a modified multiday fishing vessel in Colombo to improve the quality of fish and reduce postharvest loss in the Fisheries sector.The FAO in a statment said that fish products are an important source of animal protein for Sri Lanka and the sector contributes about 1.1 percent to Sri Lanka’s GDP.  However, studies by the National Aquatic Resources Research and Development Agency (NARA) indicate that the fish quality loss in some harbours is at 60 – 70 percent.Some of the issues contributing to these losses include the lack of an adequate cooling system in multi-day fishing vessels that use weeks-old ice to maintain low temperatures and the captured harvest not being handled or stored properly by fishers, which reduces the quality of the overall harvest and damage the bottom layer of stored fish. To address this issue FAO, together with the Ministry of Fisheries and NARA, modified the design of a multi-day fishing vessel as a pilot project to introduce new boat designs that provide an economically viable solution to minimize the quality loss of fish harvests. By reducing the existing post-harvest losses, the investment for the proposed new design can be recovered within 3.5 years.The modified multi-day vessel features a pilot coolant system in fish holds and storage as well as a modified fish holding facility to minimize the physical damage to fish due to overload.

Wasantha writes to the people of Sri Lanka from prison
COLOMBO (News 1st) – Convenor of the Inter University Students Federation Wasantha Mudalige who was placed under remand custody after being detained under the Prevention of Terrorism Act addressed an open letter to the people of Sri Lanka.The letter states that the Aragalaya must be chosen to ensure the right to life, and that the student movement is ready to make any sacrifice to achieve this. In his letter, Wasantha Mudalige says that while the real terrorists roam free, the people who have been branded as terrorist languish in prison. He says that the 1st of January was his 135th day in prison after fighting for the welfare of the society and calling for economic and political change in the country. He added that there are many more people who fought for the same cause languishing in jail. He further points out that the lives of people in the middle class have collapsed due to the crisis, and says that the situation would completely wipe out a middle-class in society.Wasantha Mudalige says that the aspirations of the People's struggle have not yet been accomplished, and adds that the Ranil Rajapaksa Junta continue to act as they did before. Wasantha Mudalige further states that the government has launched a massive smear campaign to discredit the people's struggle with the intention of covering up their own failures and ineptitude. He points out that all people must unite despite such smear campaigns launched by the government. In his open letter, Wasantha Mudalige adds that this is only the begining of the Aragalaya and that the people's struggle is far from over.

Adele forced to 'waddle' around Vegas stage as she battles 'really bad' health condition
Adele, 34, has been taking Las Vegas by storm since mid November, and will continue to croon for fans until March - but her rescheduled concert dates have been far from easy, as she admitted onstage recently.The Set Fire To The Rain singer has been battling a secret bout of sciatica, and is now forced to "waddle" around the stage.She let slip the impact that the painful nerve condition has had on her after fans spotted her struggling to walk smoothly."I’ve got two more, I’ve just got to get over to the other side of the stage," she announced as she attempted to hand out T-shirt launchers to the audience.She added: "I have to waddle these days as I have really bad sciatica.”According to the NHS website, the condition is most commonly caused by a slipped disc which compresses the sciatic nerve, and it causes intense shooting pain that flows from the lower back all the way down to the feet.Numbness, tingling, and pins and needles sensations are among the other uncomfortable symptoms.Sufferers typically recover within around six weeks but Adele hasn't been so lucky - in fact, the songstress previously admitted that she has endured back pain for years.Shockingly, she admitted that she had slipped her first disc due to sneezing aggressively at the age of 15 - and it was the same way that subsequent discs "flew out", too.She lamented that, by the time she had a C-section, her core had become "useless"."I’ve been in pain with [it] for, like, half of my life, really," she agonised to The Face."It flares up, normally due to stress or from a stupid bit of posture."Adele has certainly been through her fair share of stress in life, including a painful divorce from charity boss Simon Konecki, who is the father of her son Angelo, now
