In the next 4-5 years, the intake (of soldiers) will increase to 50,000-60,000 and go up to 90,000-1 lakh subsequently. The intake of 'Agniveers' will go up to 1.25 lakh in the near future and will not remain at 46,000. All those who want to become a part of the armed forces under the Agnipath scheme will need to pledge that they have not participated in any protest and vandalism. There is no space for indiscipline in the armed forces. There is no space for arson and vandalism, nobody can join the armed forces without police verification.

Got your hands on the latest, limited-edition little pink cocktail dress from Zara? Congrats, you're basically wearing poop, but for a good cause. The garment is sourced, in part, from captured carbon. A company called LanzaTech takes the greenhouse gases and uses a unique strain of bacteria that devours the emissions and "poops out ethanol basically," CEO Jennifer Holmgren said. The ethanol is then sent to other manufacturers who use it to produce polyester. "It's like yeast when you make beer and you give it sugar and it makes ethanol," Holmgren said. "We don't feed it sugar; we feed our organism either carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide." LanzaTech's ethanol, which is chemically identical to fossil-fuel-derived ethanol, is then sent to companies that turn it into other chemicals used in polyester fabrics or in other products, such as plastic bottles.
