CNG suspension nightmare for citizens of twin cities

CNG suspension has become a nightmare for the citizen of twin cities as they face immense difficulties to reach their destinations during load shedding days.
Citizens, as well as, public transporters have spent millions of rupees to get their vehicles to CNG and they are facing immense problems due to prolonged closures of CNG stations which have now become a regular feature.
After increase, in the petroleum prices citizens converted their vehicles to CNG, as it was the cheap fuel as compared to Petrol. These citizens are facing problems due to prolonged closure of CNG stations.
CNG suspension is not only creating problems for the commuters but also affecting the business of the transporters in the twin cities, as they cannot get CNG to ply their vehicles on roads.
CNG suspension has become a regular feature which is disturbing the life of people of twin cities as they have not any other option left but to again convert their vehicles to petrol and diesel which would cost million of rupees. This practice is difficult for vehicle owners but it would also cause billion of rupees loss to the economy of the country.
Citizens have expressed their concerns in this regard saying that it is not possible for every citizen to convert vehicle to petrol or diesel.
Khubaib an employee of a private firm told Online that transport system in federal capital is pathetic that one prefers to purchase his own vehicles rather to travel in public transport. He said that now due to inefficiency of the present government CNG crises has been worsened and people are again facing difficulties. He demanded the government to devise mechanism regarding supply of CNG to stations and provide possible relief to the masses.

During load shedding days public transport remains less while cab owners take extra charges on pretext of running their vehicles on petrol.
She demanded from the authorities to take notice of the situation and to take immediate steps to solve this issue.
Pleasure eating may fuel obesity: When pleasure motivates eating, rather than hunger, it activates chemical signals which can cause overeating and fuel obesity, says a new study.
“`Hedonic hunger` refers to the desire to eat for pleasure, and to enjoy the taste, rather than to restore the body`s energy needs,” said Palmiero Monteleone, University of Naples SUN, Italy, who led the study.
“For example, desiring and eating a piece of cake even after a satiating meal is consumption driven by pleasure and not by energy deprivation,” said Monteleone, the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism reported.
“The physiological process underlying hedonic eating is not fully understood, but it is likely that endogenous substances (hormone or neurotransmitter produced naturally in the body), regulating reward mechanisms like the hormone ghrelin and chemical compounds such as 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) are involved,” said Monteleone.
Researchers assessed satiated healthy adults, aged 21 years, feeding them each their personal food and later, a less-palatable food of equal caloric and nutrient value, said a university statement.
They periodically measured 2-AG and ghrelin levels. The plasma levels (concentration in blood) of ghrelin and 2-AG increased during hedonic eating, with the favourite foods, but not with non-hedonic eating.
This increase suggests an activation of the chemical reward system, which overrides the body`s signal that enough has been eaten to restore energy.
“Hedonic hunger may powerfully stimulate overeating in an environment where highly palatable foods are omnipresent, and contribute to the surge in obesity,” concluded Monteleone.
