We found that poor air quality severe adverse effect

A multi-agency study revealed that poor air quality adversely affects the growth of the foetus in pregnant women. The study was conducted to find the adverse effects of air pollution on foetuses and newborns. The chairperson, department of neonatology, Institute of Child Health, at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Dr Neelam Kler, who is part of the study, told this newspaper that during the study, the data of over 10,000 pregnant women who were living in various corners of Delhi was analysed and co-related with the air quality recorded in the monitoring station near their residences. “We found that poor air quality severe adverse effect on the growth and development of the foetus in the mother’s womb. We found that newborns were weighting 20 to 30 grams less than the newborns in previous years when air quality was comparatively better. Apart from weight, the overall growth of the foetus is affected in poor air quality,” added Dr Kler. According to Dr Kler, the study was conducted by Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in association with Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), Indian Meteorol-ogical Department (IMD), and London School of Hygiene to explore the association China Aluminum scaffolding tower of air pollution with a neonate’s birth weight and gestational age.

Dr Kler said that the study established that toxic gases like carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide and other poisonous gases had not only adversely affected the growth of foetuses, but also led to premature birth. “Poor air quality affects the immune system of vulnerable groups and the study shows that a foetus which is still developing in the womb is also exposed to poor air quality,” she added. For the study, the records of 10,565 births in Sir Ganga Ram Hospital in the national capital were encoded and linked with real-time air quality data. These were records of women who reported a New Delhi address during the time of delivery. The distance of each address to all the monitoring stations were recorded. The birth records were assigned pollution exposure levels averaged across records from monitoring stations within 10 kilometres of the address during the pregnancy period. “For the study, maternal and neonatal data from 2007-2012 were encoded and linked with air pollution data based on distance to the nearest air quality monitoring station. For the outcome of study, completeness and accuracy of neonatal anthropometric measures, maternal demographic information, nutritional status and maternal risk factors (gestational diabetes, anaemia, hypertension, etc.) were assessed,” she said. Dr Kler also said that there is need to further analyse the figures and data in a bid to find of the long-term effects of air pollution among babies. The study was done with an objective to consider the feasibility of linking patient-level hospital data with ambient air pollution data recorded in real-time by air quality monitoring stations.

The objective of the paper he said was to analyse

Cape Town: India may have the largest number of people living with Tuberculosis (TB) but the most infectious disease lacks space in the Parliament of India.In their findings presented at the 46th Union World conference on lung health in Cape Town experts revealed that out of the 5.4 per cent questions asked on health related issues during the five year tenure of 15th Lok Sabha, only 1.2 per cent were related to the contagious disease. During their presentation at the conference, experts from India revealed that out of the total 79401 questions, 4283 (5.4 per cent) questions were on health related topics. However, only 1.2 per cent (52 questions) pertained to TB.Significantly, in Rajya Sabha, 10,025 questions were raised during 2014 that included 556 (5.5 per cent) questions on health but questions pertaining to TB were mere 17 (3 per cent). They also disclosed that out of 795 parliamentarians in both houses, 61 (7.6 per cent) raised questions on the contagious disease. Ironically, only 8 parliamentarians famous Aluminum extrusions profile suppliers (1 per cent of total) asked repeat questions on TB during the period of the review.

Speaking to this newspaper, Sashikant Nayak, technical consultant with The Union- who presented the findings said that, “the issue is of highest priority and requires space both inside and outside the parliament. Ironically this doesn’t seem to be the case,” he said.The objective of the paper he said was to analyse how TB as an issue has penetrated in to both Upper and Lower house of the Indian Parliament. Review of 69 questions of both houses revealed that 26 per cent (18) were on the National programme on TB, 20 per cent (14) were on diagnosis and treatment, followed by TB epidemiology, the XDR TB-which is the most complicated for of TB attracted only 10 questions (15 per cent), drugs and vaccine 12 per cent (8).Interestingly, only 2 questions raised in RS were related to TB and nutrition and 2 questions were asked on policy and research. Experts call for action to involve more Parliamentarians both inside and outside the parliament. Significantly India has the highest TB burden country of the globe that accounts for 26 per cent of TB cases with an estimated incidence of 2.1 million and 2.6 million prevalence per annum. About 1.4 million TB patients were put on treatment in 2013.However, one third of the cases are still missing from the national notification system. TB though is curable but remains the World’s deadliest infectious disease claiming 1.5 million lives each year.Earlier the WHO had said that only one in four (26 per cent) of the 4,80,000 people estimated to have developed multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB) in 2014 was diagnosed with only 1,11,000 people (23 per cent) started on treatment.

The benchmark Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong

The Shenzhen Composite Index, which tracks stocks on China’s second exchange, slipped 0.01 per cent, or 0.34 points, to 2,268.28.Most Asian stock markets were lower Tuesday as slumping commodity prices weighed on shares of resource companies.KEEPING SCORE: Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 index slipped 0.1 percent to 19,864.71 after reopening following a public holiday.

Australia’s S&P/ASX shed 0.5 percent to 5,251.50.COMMODITY CRUNCH: Raw materials such as copper and nickel have slid to multi-year lows on the subdued global economic outlook as well as the dollar’s strength on rising expectations that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates next month. That’s dragging down commodity producers such as Australian miners BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto. Demand for commodities from international buyers is affected by the strength of the greenback because contracts are priced in dollars.FED FOCUS: Most investors expect the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates from record-low levels at its mid-December meeting and markets are likely to trade within a narrow range unless signs emerge that the U.S. central bank will change course. That contrasts with monetary policy from other major central banks in Japan and Europe, which are expected to keep the stimulus taps open.

QUOTABLE: «The rhetoric from the Fed suggests numbers would have to fall off a cliff to stop an interest rate rise in December,» said Michael McCarthy of CMC Markets in Sydney. «Wild gyrations in oil and another copper tumble could see further pressure on resource stocks in trading today.»WALL STREET: Major U.S. indexes ended marginally higher after they failed to hold on to early gains.

They should first understand Ambedkar before they hold

Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis is set to embark on a three-day visit to London on November 14 to formally inaugurate a memorial for Dr B.R. Ambedkar. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who will already be on a UK visit from Thursday, will also be part of the inauguration ceremony. Mr Fadnavis said the event is being organised by the British Consulate and would be a “small” one and, thus, the number of invitees were limited. However, the Opposition targeted Mr Fadnavis for not inviting the leader of Opposition to be part of the event.“The programme has been organised by the British Consulate with limited invitees. There will be no loudspeakers or firecrackers since it is a residential area. This will be a small event,” said the chief minister, whose tour begins on Thursday.

Dr Ambedkar’s house will be developed into an international memorial dedicated to China aluminum Telescopic ladder suppliers the architect of the Indian Constitution. “Dr Ambedkar was a scholar and a multi-faceted personality. He wrote some research papers during the period he stayed there (at the London house). Along with these research papers, artefacts will also be kept on the first and second floors of the Ambedkar house,” Mr Fadnavis said.He added that two students, selected through a scholarship every year, would also get a chance to live on the third floor. Meanwhile, the proposed event prompted an attack from the opposition Congress and NCP who said that the government should refrain from politicising such issues.“What do you expect from these politicians influenced by the RSS when they did not invite us for the Bhoomipujan for the Dr Ambedkar memorial at Indu Mills, where there were no restrictions,” asked Congress leader Sachin Sawant, adding, “They should at least stop politicising issues related to national leaders.

They should first understand Ambedkar before they hold programmes.”Joining the attack, NCP leader Sachin Ahir said Dr Ambedkar’s followers were smart enough to see through the BJP’s tactics of trying to “gain political brownie points”. “This is not an issue which can be milked to gain political brownie points. Since they are doing it, Ambedkar’s followers will see through it,” Mr Ahir said, adding, “At least as a mark of respect to senior people, be it from any political party, who had worked towards realising Dr Ambedkar’s dream of India, they should have been invited,” he said.The Maharashtra government had in January this year decided to buy the house at 10, Kings Henry Road in London where Dr Ambedkar lived from 1921 to 1922. The government finally took possession in September of the 2,050-square feet three-storey house. Dr Ambedkar was pursuing his doctoral studies at the London School of Economics.The government had made a provision of Rs 40 crore for buying the house. It was finally bought at a cost of Rs 31 crore. The initial 10 per cent token had been paid in April but the deal had got stuck in the interim after deliberations failed between the owner and the state government.

Asserting that UPA regime had frequent discussion on security

In what has transformed the Look East Policy into an Act East policy of PM Modi, the central government has also given commitment to improve road China aluminum Household step ladder manufacturers conditions in Myanmar and to open the trans-bord-er international highways. Asserting that UPA regime had frequent discussion on security related issues with Myanmar, security sources said that economic activities between the two countries had come to a standstill and was ignored. Along with the highway link from More in Manipur and Mandalay in Myanmar, and the India-Myanmar-Thailand Highway project, India will get linked to the East West Economic Corridor, which goes up to Vietnam.Asserting that government of India is of view that economic ties with Myanmar would take care of India’s security concern also, security sources said that India was also facilitating visit of corporate houses to Myanmar to encourage investment and economic activities.In what has given a new dimension to the policy of India for Southeast Asians countries, the central government has taken a conscious decision of laying more stress on improving economic activities instead of focusing more on security related issues. Pointing out that Kaladan Project was left out after an allocation of Rs 300 crore by previous UPA regime, security sources said that alternative route to Northeast through sea and river is likely to be operationalised in 2016.It is significant that current cargo transport route to the north-eastern states through the Siliguri corridor or Chicken’s Neck area is overstretched and is not suitable for the transport of heavy machinery.. The project will link Kolkata Port to Myanmar’s Sittwe port and then provide a riverine route through the Kaladan river and by road to the Myanmar-India border adjoining Mizoram.Informing that central government has decided to invest nearly Rs 3000 crore on the Kaladan multi-modal transit transport project, sources in the home ministry told this newspaper on Monday that the Kaladan project, which was initiated in 2008, is aimed at providing an alternative route for cargo to India’s north-eastern states through Myanmar.

Such kind of music brings people together to celebrate

The multi-talented sister duo, Miriam Nervo and Olivia Nervo, have made it to the covers of Vixen and Covergirl magazines and their dressing sensibilities along with the rocking stage performances have created a stir. ‘Only live, love and dance till you drop’ is our message to the fans.Packed with flea markets, dazzling lights, exploding sounds, famous aluminum Roof system manufacturers beautiful stage designs, bar arenas and stunning visuals, the festival will host a galaxy of globally renowned electronic dance music names. It gives us more liberty to play with visuals, lights, lasers and makes it an exciting experience. Singh puts forth, “Sunburn 7 is radically different from the other editions in terms of stage and line-up. Such kind of music brings people together to celebrate, regardless of where they live or what language they speak. Such arenas have a capacity of accommodating larger dance and music enthusiasts, usually with a lot more energy. People come with an open mind at such fests and don’t mind experimentation.

The DJ is also looking forward to meeting Indian artistes.Anish Sood’s hit single with Ramona Arena remains one of the most popular dance stompers.”Dash Berlin, one of the top ten DJs who has won several awards in the past, is a major highlight of the fest. As far as our sound is concerned, it’s groovy bass lines, energetic yet moody outros with a hint of tech elements,” concludes Mehta. He says, “It’s inspiring to play outside in the open air, under the stars.”Dash, who plays progressive trance, feels that India is opening up to becoming a hot destination for EDM fests.The festival kicks off today from 2 pm at Galgotias University, Campus 1, Greater Noida. Over the last few years, there has been a dramatic rise of EDM in India due to its higher energy level as compared to rock, hip-hop or any other music genres.It is that time of the year when you let your hair down, tap your feet and cheer aloud as the seventh edition of one of the premier Electronic dance and music (EDM) festivals, Sunburn 2013 kicks off today. “It’s the first time we’re performing in India.Apart from the international artists, the festival boasts of a carefully chosen line-up featuring some of the youngest DJs of the nation.

We have always chosen dance music as the primary focus of the festival since dance music has no lyrics, which means that everybody can understand and enjoy. “Our performance highlights will comprise songs from Music for # Generation, older singles and exclusive edits. Having shared consoles with several popular names such as Gareth Emery, Steve Aoki among others, DJ and producer Anish Sood is an artist to watch out for. The twins have opened for Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj on the Femme Fatale tour.

Sunburn is the face of dance music in Asia, so importing the best of DJs and musicians is the focus of the festival. The duo, one of the most formidable EDM producers in the country, is set to rock at the fest. Sood says, “EDM has extended its reach beyond metros and attracts the young age group between 16 to 25 years.”DJ Rishab Joshi and Prayag Mehta were 18 and 22 respectively when they signed their first music contract with Black Hole Recordings ((DJ Tiesto’s record label). Our popular Grammy Award-winning single, When Love Takes Over, The Way We See The World are one of our breakthrough records that will surely be liked by the Indian audience,” says Olivia. So ladies, put in a few extra minutes before getting ready to see them perform at Sunburn.

It was mainly the idols of the Goddess Durga

But I never thought that I would create my artworks out of metal. The multi-dimensional art project that portrays Goddess Durga in her various avatars, took six years to complete. Narayan believes that the project is not just about godly forms of famous Aluminum multi ladder suppliers Durga, but also about the festivity surrounding it. Talking about his choice of materials that he uses to create his artworks, he adds, “I have a concern to preserve culture. Made from items that are considered as discards such as automobile parts, fuel tanks of kerosene stoves, stove burners, metal scrap, old locks, mousetraps etc, his collection Debi weaves a story that resonates with culture and tradition. Every piece I collect has a purpose. People make fun of me and call me a scrap hero. “When I was a kid, I got the inspiration from the things that surrounded me. So I am not just a junk collector.. I do not collect randomly.Ever since he was a kid, Narayan was fascinated with metal, that he realised on his numerous visits to factories in his hometown.Coming from a small town, Narayan Sinha was always inspired by things around him – not only when it came to the final shape of his artworks, but also the raw materials he used to achieve that excellence in creating them. But collecting and sourcing material is a tedious process. I use objects that have been a part and parcel of our tradition. “I love metal and I believe metal loves me.

It was mainly the idols of the Goddess Durga in the temples and the pictures in the old calendars that pushed me towards creativity and formed my foundation,” shares Narayan. Also, the exhibition is a tribute to craftsmanship, as it’ll provide a firsthand view of what the idol goes through from start to finish,” adds Narayan.”The exhibition is on till November 15 in Art Alive Gallery, Gurgaon. It was only after I graduated in science, I started using nuts, bolts, metal tanks and any kind of metal form to create my artworks,” he sharesAn avid traveler, he collects materials from all over India. They will get a chance to witness how people experience religion at the grassroots level.This seems evident in his depiction of goddess and deities.Narayan draws inspirations from his native place, Nalhati. “The show will provide a cinematic experience to the viewers with a combination of lighting, a video installation and the whole interior of the place, along with the sculpture installations. There are thoughts and methods behind my choice of materials that may appear to be discards in the eyes of viewers.

It is not clear how the passengers will reach the railway

It defies logic that the railways has chosen to run air-conditioned coaches as the chances of a single infected person spreading the virus to others in a closed environment are high. It launched a mission named ‘Vande Bharat’ to bring stranded Indians back from overseas but allowed national carrier Air India to charge return fare, Aluminum extrusions profile which mocks at the term ‘mission’.It is not the first time that the government acted in a haphazard manner and the pattern that emerges is that of a mechanism with little understanding of the challenges on the ground. Taken together, the government offers the sight of a bewildered boy staring at an unsolved jigsaw puzzle. A unity of purpose would have been at least reassuring but it’s sadly missing.. True, the virus has landed humanity in an unprecedented mess and an escape has no tested route. A coordinated effort, not a surprise announcement, was the need of the hour. But the government, despite several rounds of talks among the senior ministers and the Prime Minister, has not come out with a package, leaving not only the labourers but also the entire segment stranded. The Central notification in force now mandates that all inter-state passengers undergo a 14-day quarantine and the states ensure its compliance using the data base they create when passengers apply for passes.

It keeps the operation of the PM-Cares fund under wraps at a time when every rupee counts. It is not clear how the passengers will reach the railway station to board the rain or proceed from their destinations once they reach there as metro cities such as Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Chennai are in complete lockdown with no public transport available. Multi-stop trains are highly likely to derail the entire process as the states have little say in the number of people who arrive at their borders or their whereabouts.The government has not heeded the cash-strapped states’ demand for raising their borrowing limits but announced a massive hike of more than 50 per cent in its own numbers.India is hardly a week away from ending the nearly two-month long national lockdown and the picture that emerges now is not that of a confident nation that has achieved the target it had set for itself in the fight against the pandemic Covid 19 and has prepared a cohesive and comprehensive formula to take on the future challenges; it is that of a confused one which has covered little distance during the period and is taking decisions at cross purposes, instead. A major share of the migrant labourers who have been stranded now are employed in the small and medium segment industries and their trek home could have been avoided had the government extended the sector a helping hand. It’s time it took a holistic view of the situation which alone can help it solve the muddle. The latest in the series is the decision to run 15 pairs of long distance multi-stop trains with air-conditioned coaches.
