Earth's shifting poles causing concern for future magnetic field

The Earth's magnetic field, generated by the movement of the molten iron core, protects the planet from harmful solar radiation and cosmic particles, making it habitable for life and enabling navigation for humans and migratory animals. However, the magnetic poles are gradually moving, with the North Pole currently shifting towards Siberia at an increased rate. This movement could lead to a 'magnetic reversal', where the north and south poles switch locations. Research suggests that this change is due to intense magnetic fields deep inside the planet, but the reason for the acceleration remains unknown. If the Earth's magnetic field were to disappear, the consequences would be dire, with increased radiation exposure leading to mutations in living cells and potential harm to human health and technology. sources

Vadodara Residents Object to Muslim Woman's Flat Allotment

Residents of a housing complex in Vadodara, built under a government scheme, are protesting the allotment of an apartment to a Muslim woman, arguing that the area is designated for Hindus only.
