* sour beer = The advent of brewing and drinking beer can be traced to around 4,000 B.C., when all beers were essentially sour beers. At this point, there were many naturally occurring bacteria present in beer, such as lactobacillus (also known as "sour milk bacteria"). These living organisms (often called "bugs") resided in the beer throughout the fermentation process, and their presence produced a sour or funky flavor. As refrigeration and pasteurization technologies evolved and became more prevalent in the mid-nineteenth century, sour beers virtually disappeared as lagers and ales came into prominence. Since the 1970s, however, sours have become increasingly popular among beer drinkers around the world...

A drone camera to catch people red-handed in the act is the latest strategy of the police in Telangana’s Karimnagar district to prevent open defecation (ỉa ngoài đường) on the banks of a local reservoir (hồ chứa).

Police say the exercise which began Monday has yielded excellent results within three days.

...The reservoir of Lower Manair Dam (LMD), located on the outskirts of Karimnagar town on Hyderabad road, has been serving as a drinking water source for the people of the town. It is guarded by a team of police of the LMD police station. Initially, the police introduced the drone camera with a view to keep an eye on people jumping into lake to commit suicide (tự tử) and save them from drowning (chết đuối). The drone also keeps a watch on drunkards  (say rượu) assembling on the reservoir banks to help the police take action against them.

“But recently, we have been receiving a lot of complaints from local walkers’ association that some people from the nearby slums (nhà ổ chuột) and weaker sections’ colonies (khu kiều dân) go to the banks of the lake to ease themselves early in the morning and they want the help of the police to prevent them. It then struck us that the drone camera can also be used to identify such people,” Reddy said.

Ironically, almost all the houses in these colonies have toilets. Yet, people were habituated to come out early in the morning for open defecation, despite the hectic (cuồng nhiệt, say sưa) campaign (chiến dịch) about Swachh Bharat in the last two years...
