|Abstract||The relationship between the rate of fall-out and the concentration of Sr/sup 90/ in human diet was calculated for the United Kingdom during 1958. Data from a detailed study of the content of Sr/sup 90/ in human diet and results of field experiments on the absorption of Sr/sup 90/ from the soil were employed.The fraction of the Sr/sup 90/ in milk which is attributable to absorption from soil was also calculated. Results are presented in tabular form and are compared with an assessment based on 1957 data. From an analysis of the data it appears that during 1958 the contamination of milk and other agricultural produce did not rise as greatly as the rate of fall-out. This was attributed to the higher rainfall during 1958 which caused a larger fraction of the deposition to be removed from plants in wash off. (C.H.)|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
