Modi goverment ups scholarships given under National Defence Fund

first_imgNew Delhi: In its first decision of its second tenure, Narendra Modi government has enhanced the amount to be paid as part of ‘Prime Ministers Scholarship Scheme’ under the National Defence Fund. The rates of scholarship have been increased from Rs 2,000 per month to Rs 2,500 per month for boys and from Rs 2,250 per month to Rs 3,000 per month for girls. The ambit of the scholarship Scheme has also been extended to the wards of state police personnel who “were martyred during terror/naxal attacks”.

The National Defence Fund (NDF) was set up in 1962 to take charge of the voluntary donations in cash and kind received for promotion of the national defence effort, and to decide on their utilisation. The Prime Minister’s Scholarship Scheme (PMSS) is being implemented to encourage technical and post-graduate education for widows and wards of the deceased or ex-service personnel of armed forces and paramilitary forces and Railway Protection Force. Prime Minster Narendra Modi had taken oath on Thursday along with his council of ministers after leading BJP-led NDA to a big election victory in the Lok Sabha polls.last_img read more

Nobel winner Suu Kyi not above reproach in Rohingya abuse investigations Rae

first_imgOTTAWA – No Myanmar politician, including Nobel laureate and honorary Canadian citizen Aung San Suu Kyi, is above a potential investigation by the International Criminal Court of possible war crimes, says Canada’s special envoy to the crisis.Bob Rae, who was appointed Canada’s special envoy to the seven-month-old Rohingya crisis, offered that warning as he released his final report Tuesday on the troubles engulfing Myanmar and Bangladesh.He said Canada needs to step up its spending on the mass migration crisis and should play a leading role in the investigation by the International Criminal Court of possible war crimes.Canada should also consider granting refugee and resettlement status to Myanmar’s persecuted ethnic Rohingya, 700,000 of whom have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh to escape a brutal campaign by Myanmar’s military, he said.The Trudeau government said it would assess the recommendations and respond later.The 39-page report was noticeably silent on another major issue: how to address Suu Kyi, Myanmar’s de facto political leader who has been widely criticized for not speaking out against the atrocities being committed against the Rohingya.Rae told a news conference on Parliament Hill that he wishes she would act.“Whoever is found responsible, whether in the civilian government or the military government, for what has happened should be held responsible. I don’t exclude anybody from that,” he said.Rae reiterated the past view of the Liberal government — that Suu Kyi is not in charge of her country’s powerful military, which once held her under house arrest and that targeting her does not address the main crisis.“I wish that she had spoken out. I wish she would speak out,” Rae said, adding that his report urges Myanmar’s government, which includes her, to take responsibility for what has happened and allow an independent investigation.The veteran politician made two trips to Myanmar in recent months and described what he essentially characterized as a slow march towards genocide.The Canadian government and others have referred to the crisis as ethnic cleansing, because branding it a genocide would carry an international legal obligation to intervene, potentially with force.Rae recommends Canada take a lead role with like-minded countries in a UN genocide investigation.He also invokes the UN’s Responsibility to Protect doctrine, which Canada helped create more than a decade ago, a doctrine that has been widely criticized for its failure to stop carnage elsewhere — notably Syria.The duty to protect citizens lies initially with states themselves “but failing that, becomes a wider regional and, ultimately, international obligation,” Rae writes.“The lesson of history is that genocide is not an event like a bolt of lightning. It is a process, one that starts with hate speech and the politics of exclusion, then moves to legal discrimination, then the policies of removal and then finally to a sustained drive to physical extermination.”Fareed Khan, spokesman for the Rohingya Human Rights Network, said in a statement that the report is far from perfect but he praised Rae for raising the possibility of a genocide in progress. He called the report “a solid foundation on which Canada can base its long-term approach to addressing the crisis, including bringing to justice Myanmar leaders who have committed crimes against humanity and genocide.”Rae said at the news conference he wasn’t interested in an academic debate about whether genocide is occurring, but said the current crises “has very disturbing echoes of what has happened elsewhere in history, and we need to listen to those echoes.”In the meantime, Rae says Canada needs to do more help refugees, including those in the region and those who might be able to find sanctuary elsewhere, and it needs to commit to a longer-term humanitarian strategy for the region, as it has in Syria and Iraq. Canada also needs to deepen its commitment to human rights on the ground, by protecting women and girls.Aid agencies and rights groups welcomed the report because it showed the government specific areas where Canada can lead.David Morley, president of UNICEF Canada said hundreds of thousands of children are at risk and they must be educated because “educating children in times of crises is key to helping them contribute to peace.”Alex Neve, the secretary general of Amnesty International Canada, said Canada was well-positioned to aid in the ongoing humanitarian relief efforts and “to establish mechanisms to ensure justice and accountability for perpetrators of crimes against humanity.”The report also suggests the federal government could target more of Myanmar’s military leaders under its new Magnitsky Act that seeks to isolate human rights abusers by freezing assets and blocking travel.But Rae stopped short of recommending further sanctions, saying those would only hurt the 50 million people of an already impoverished country, and make Canada irrelevant to any solutions.last_img read more

Police again focus of testimony at MMIWG inquiry – this time its

first_imgWillow Fiddler Kathleen Martens APTN News Clutching an eagle feather given to her during the search for her daughter, the mother of Delaine Copenace got right to the point.“I was so scared, really hurt now knowing where she was,” Anida Ross said on the opening day of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Thunder Bay.Copenace, an Ojibway teen from Onigaming First Nation, was 16 when she disappeared in Kenora, Ont. on February 28.But instead of rushing to find the missing teen, Ross testified provincial police compounded her anguish by suggesting Delaine was drinking somewhere.“It’s like they gave up on her. I was so angry and hurt,” Ross said, wiping away tears.Watch Willow Fiddler’s story from the inquiry here: Ross was the first witness to testify at the inquiry’s first stop in Ontario – its seventh and last hearing of 2017.An Elder gifted Ross the feather saying, ‘Think of it as your daughter’, Ross told commissioners Brian Eyolfson and Michele Audette.Police called off their search after 14 days.Ross said that was a difficult time made even tougher by the way some officers treated her.“You could tell which were sincere, which weren’t,” she said. “I knew just by the way they talked to me.”When officers told her they found a body in Lake of the Woods, Ross said they couldn’t confirm it was Delaine. That took until March 22.Finally, Ontario’s Office of the Chief Coroner ruled there was no foul play and said the teen drowned.Something Ross called “garbage” and still disagrees with.A regional coroner later overturned the decision so the case remains open.“Proper investigations have to happen,” said Ross, adding she couldn’t believe the report was sent to her home via regular mail.“Just ‘cause they’re dead and gone don’t give up on it.”Ross is still upset it took police three days to join the search for Delaine.She said she thinks her daughter was harmed.“I believe that was the second scene; she might have died elsewhere.”The family doesn’t have the police report, although Ross says she requested it.They took pictures of Delaine’s wrists with a cell phone because it looked like they’d been bound together, she said.For her, there are still too many unanswered questions. And police saying she “just ran away” doesn’t cut it.Commissioners are expecting to hear more about high-profile drowning deaths right in Thunder Bay as 50 families testify over three days in the northwestern Ontario city.Follow Willow Fiddler at the inquiry:last_img read more

Somalia UN envoy concerned at rising tensions between Puntland and Somaliland

“These tensions threaten not only to undermine the political stability and economic progress that both sides have so painstakingly achieved, but also international support for their efforts,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative for Somalia, François Lonseny Fall, said in a statement released in Nairobi. “I would like to appeal to the authorities in both Puntland and Somaliland to immediately cease all hostile actions, refrain from any provocative acts and take all necessary steps to reduce tensions in the Sool and Sanaag regions,” Mr. Fall said. He appealed to both sides to ensure unrestricted access to all humanitarian efforts and not to impede United Nations humanitarian activities. Recent fighting in Somalia between the Ethiopian-backed Transitional Federal Government (TFG) forces and insurgents has left hundreds dead and wounded, while tens of thousands of civilians have fled Mogadishu as a result of the conflict, Mr. Fall today told a meeting in Nairobi of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), a regional organization that has been involved in efforts to stabilize Somalia. “All the hospitals in the city and its environs have been overwhelmed with the rising number of casualties,” he added. The envoy called for a political solution, and encouraged the TFG to ensure that a planned National Reconciliation Congress be “as inclusive as possible.” On Thursday, the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, John Holmes, voiced deep concern over the dire situation facing the displaced, who have been harassed, threatened, raped and robbed. The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that aid workers are being thwarted in their efforts to assist internally displaced persons (IDPs) and other vulnerable groups by the deteriorating security situation, harassment, intimidation and even detention. The UN refugee agency has been begun delivery of 28 tons of relief supplies to help up to 20,000 people who fled recent fighting in Mogadishu, spokesman Ron Redmond told reporters in Geneva today. “Thousands of displaced Somalis have spent nearly two weeks without proper food, water or shelter,” he said. “Families with no relatives or clan links in the area continue to live in the open, or under trees. The need for shelter material is now more pressing because of the rainy season which normally begins this month.” UNHCR has additional stocks for up to 5,000 families in Mogadishu and smaller quantities in the town of Marka. But Mr. Redmond warned that obstacles remain. “We are still facing difficulties in bringing items out of the warehouses for distribution to thousands of families who fled from the capital,” he said, adding that “insecurity in parts of Mogadishu has continued to jeopardize humanitarian access to the Somali capital and surrounding regions, making the plight of civilians all the more desperate.” About 128,000 Somalis are believed to have fled from Mogadishu since the beginning of February. Nearly 90,000 of them have sought safety in the adjacent provinces of Middle and Lower Shabelle, according to UNHCR, which estimate that 18,000 people have settled in the district of Afgooye. And up to 4,000 people may be recently displaced in Baidoa. These figures “may still rise as people continue to flee Mogadishu,” Mr. Redmond warned. 13 April 2007Reacting to rising tensions between Somalia’s autonomous Puntland region and self-declared Somaliland, the senior United Nations envoy to the country today called on all sides to allow humanitarian activities to continue unimpeded. read more

Afghanistan Brahimi holds consultations in New York his deputy set to visit

This morning, Mr. Brahimi opened the annual coordination meeting of Foreign Ministers from the Member States of the Organization of the Islamic Conference. According to a UN spokesman, the OIC had also been invited to tomorrow’s meeting of the so-called Group of 21, a broad collection of countries that have been directly or indirectly affected by the crisis in Afghanistan and have influence and interests in the region. Mr. Brahimi was also scheduled to meet today with Ruud Lubbers, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees who was in New York for the UN General Assembly’s annual discussion of the refugee agency, UNHCR.Meanwhile in Islamabad, Deputy Special Representative Francesc Vendrell told a press conference that he was expected to lead a team of UN political and humanitarian staff back to Kabul as early as tomorrow or Saturday.”I intend to spend quite some time talking to the various leaders of the United Front to discuss the situation in the country, listening to their views and to their plans, but also asking them to listen to our views, and our views have the full support of the international community,” Mr. Vendrell said. “I will also invite the United Front to participate at the meeting of various Afghan groups, which the Special Representative wants to hold at an appropriate place at the very earliest opportunity.” read more

The most awesome Lego machine you will ever see

first_imgAt Christmas we all tend to have more time away from work due to two weekends that count as a holiday. Depending on how motivated you are, that time can be spent being productive, or more commonly sat in front of a TV or PC playing games and watching movies. The YouTube video below is simply entitled “Lego awesome machine” and it shows someone who was very motivated to make something both completely useless and totally awesome over the Christmas break.The machine has been constructed out of Lego and transports lots of tiny soccer and basketballs around a never-ending loop of machinery. I hate to think how long it took to construct and test, but the end result is pretty amazing to watch. In fact, I couldn’t stop watching the video until it ended just to see what would happen to the balls next.It’s noisy, big, completely pointless, and must have cost a fortune to make. But it was all worth it just for the pleasure of completing it and I doubt it will be topped any time soon. Unfortunately, we don’t have any details on who created it and why. The YouTube video has no information other than asking the question in Polish “The dream of every big boy?” I’d say that was a fair question as most men probably dream of one day creating an awesome machine made of Lego.The YouTube poster who goes by the name of ctx0075 has also posted a second Lego video of a Pneumatic Robot that’s also worth a watch.last_img read more

Hadopi pour Pascal Nègre cest un système qui fonctionne

first_imgHadopi: pour Pascal Nègre, c’est “un système qui fonctionne”Pascal Nègre a dressé un bilan des apports d’Hadopi dans le changement des modes de consommation de la musique en France.Pascal Nègre, président d’Universal Music France, s’est réjoui que 2,2 millions de français soient passés du téléchargement illégal en ayant recours à des programmes de permettant un échange de fichiers en peer to peer vers l’offre légale. M. Nègre a confié à L’Expansion que, selon lui, la loi réprimant le téléchargement illégal était efficace.M. Nègre a expliqué dans L’Expansion que : “le principe de l’Hadopi, c’est une pédagogie pour amener les gens à changer de pratique. On ne peut que se réjouir que ce soit un système qui fonctionne”. Le président d’Universal Music pointe la différence avec l’Allemagne où “70.000 personnes sont devant les tribunaux”.Ce qui a changé avec la loi Hadopi, selon Pascal Nègre est que “nous avons eu 800.000 visiteurs de plus sur ‘streaming’ (diffusion en flux) et 1,2 million sont arrivés sur les sites payants de téléchargement”. Ce qui traduit le fait que “la France est le pays dans lequel il y a plus de gens qui ont quitté le ‘peer to peer'”. Les ventes du marché de la musique vont continuer à baisser mais pas de manière aussi spectaculaire que lors des précédentes années. Cette baisse devrait être de -3% ou -3,5% toujours selon M. Nègre.Si aux Etats-Unis les ventes digitales ont progressé de 50%, en France, elles ont gagné 15% en 2011. De même, “l’abonnement progresse de 60% dans l’Hexagone, par rapport à 2010. Au total, la progression dans le digital devrait atteindre de 20 à 25% et représenter 25% du marché”. En guise de conclusion, Pascal Nègre précise toutefois que “la musique n’est toujours pas sortie de la crise en France”.Le 16 janvier 2012 à 18:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

500 chauvessouris séchappent dun platane abattu à Strasbourg

first_img500 chauves-souris s’échappent d’un platane abattu à StrasbourgLa Ligue pour la protection des oiseaux (LPO) a recueilli environ 500 chauves-souris dont le refuge, un platane, a été abattu à Strasbourg. Elles sont nourries une à une par les soigneurs qui forcent l’admiration des spécialistes.A cette époque de l’année, les chauves-souris sont en pleine hibernation. Mais quelques 500 d’entre elles ont été récemment dérangées lorsque le platane dans lequel elles avaient trouvé refuge à Strasbourg a été abattu. Pour les sauver, le centre de sauvegarde de Rosenwiller (dans le Bas-Rhin) de la Ligue de protection des oiseaux (LPO) les a recueillies. Mais il n’est pas évident de les nourrir, explique Lauriane Perraud, l’une des deux salariées du centre. “C’est un jeu de patience : elles sont craintives et ce n’est pas leur nourriture habituelle, cela peut prendre plus d’une demi-heure pour chacune”.Il faut dire que si le centre a déjà abrité des chauves-souris, il n’a jamais recueilli autant de ces petites bêtes d’un seul coup. Sur place, une dizaine de bénévoles sont ainsi venus à la rescousse pour aider à les nourrir. Elles sont alimentées à tour de rôle avant d’être placées dans des caisses humidifiées, dans des conditions proches de celle de leur hibernation naturelle. Il est en effet indispensable pour les sauver de leur faire retrouver les précieux grammes qu’elles ont perdus quand leur refuge strasbourgeois a été abattu.C’est par pur hasard que cette colonie a été découverte au début de la semaine dernière. Ce sont des riverains qui ont donné l’alerte, après avoir repéré quelques chauves-souris mal en point autour d’un arbre fraichement coupé sur un chantier en cours. Le soir même, des membres du Groupe d’étude et de protection des mammifères et d’Alsace (GEPMA) et de la LPO étaient sur place. “On a vite compris qu’il s’agissait d’un site d’hivernage, mais cela a été une grande surprise d’en trouver autant”, explique Cathy Zell, de la LPO cité par l’AFP.Une situation semblable à celle d’un crash d’avion À lire aussiPourquoi les chauves-souris ne se tiennent-elles jamais debout ?Après avoir contacté les meilleurs experts, la LPO alsacienne a décidé d’accueillir les quelques 500 chiroptères très affaiblis et en grand danger. Une vingtaine d’entre elles sont déjà mortes. “A ce stade, l’idée est de relâcher petit à petit celles qui auront retrouvé leur bon poids, qui devraient alors être capables de retrouver un site d’hivernage”, explique Mme Perraud. Laurent Arthur, spécialiste des chauves-souris, considère qu’il s’agit-là de “la plus importante découverte connue et documentée de noctules communes dans un arbre en Europe”. Il compare même la situation à celle “d’un crash d’avion”. “Le plus urgent, c’est de porter secours au plus vite aux rescapés, mais ensuite, il faudra tirer les leçons de ce cas d’école”, estime-t-il. En effet, il souligne que, comme le montre parfaitement cet accident, “abattre un platane creux en hiver, c’est un peu une loterie. Toute une population régionale de noctules peut se trouver dans le même arbre. Pour abattre, il faut privilégier des périodes comme la fin de l’été ou le début de l’automne”.

This 16 wearable worked where a fitness tracker failed me

first_img Share your voice Fitness 0 1:13 High-tech fitness equipment for your home A simple wearable timer can help improve your workouts. Joshua Goldman/CNET So I ditched the watch, locked my phone and looked for better options to help hit my goals. For the most part, my tracking needs could be met with pen and paper and a simple interval timer, which lets you set timed periods for work and for rest and repeat those periods over and over again.Though not a fitness tracker in the Fitbit sense, the timer allows me to easily track my set and rest times without having to look at anything, as it beeps or vibrates when time is up. It can also be used in a number of other ways, like high-intensity interval training (HIIT) or interval running, where you change your pace for different periods.Sure, there are interval timer apps for your phone, Apple Watch and WearOS watch, and Fitbit’s exercise app has an interval timer. But frankly, fitness trackers don’t excel at tracking many activities beyond running and other cardio anyway. Plus trackers work best if you put in the effort to find and maximize their apps and data, so you should commit to that as well.GymbossThe Gymboss’ removable belt clip has all the instructions you need. Joshua Goldman/CNET For me, my watch and phone proved to be more of a distraction than helpful. Again, while it might not be gathering data on me, the interval timer does keep my workout on track, so there’s no question how long I’ve exercised. It also means I don’t have to worry about breaking or losing an expensive device.The Gymboss Classic I use is simple, and at $16 it’s cheap, but there are others out there. You can program one or two intervals and repeat them up to 99 times, and there’s also a built-in stopwatch and clock. If you want more intervals and the option to save programs, there’s a $28 miniMax model. Both run on a single AAA-size battery and have four buttons for changing settings and starting, pausing and stopping the timer. A waistband clip is included, but you can buy a wrist strap (I typically clip it to my watch strap).I still carry my phone with me for music and if I need a refresher on proper form for a particular lift, but I keep it set to “do not disturb” to kill all notifications. Otherwise it’s just me and the timer, helping me push for one last rep before the buzzer.

Penis size does matter if you are a bank vole

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — While size may not matter when it comes to humans, a new study published in Behavioural Ecology and Sociobiology found that the width of the male bank vole’s penis plays a role in social dominance. Bank Vole sitting on the forest floor. Image: Evan James hymo/ Wikipedia. Male bank voles have a bone in their penis known as baculum. While these bones are not present in humans, they can be found in a variety of different mammal species. The function of this bone has not yet been determined, but this new study does show that when it comes to the bank vole, it plays an important role.The new study, led by Dr. Jean-Francois Lemaitre from the University of Liverpool, looked at the male bank vole to determine what contributed to social dominance. They collected wild bank voles and studied their offspring.They paired the young males up and exposed them to female nesting material. Scent mark patterns were then recorded and the males that left more scent marks were determined to be the dominant of the pair.The next step was to then scan the baculum of all the males and evaluate the images. While many previous studies have focused on the penis length, the researchers discovered the real difference was in the width and that the dominant males have a much wider baculum than their subordinate male counterparts.Lemaitre believes the possible explanation may be that female bank voles need physical stimulation in order to release eggs and that this wider baculum may provide this stimulation and result in a greater reproduction success rate.He believes that this study may be the first step toward understanding the connection between genital structure and reproductive success.

Here we investigate for the first time if penile morphology differs according to male social status in a promiscuous mammal, the bank vole (Myodes glareolus). In this species, dominant males typically achieve higher reproductive success than subordinates in post-copulatory sexual selection, and male genital morphology is complex, including both a baculum (os penis) and penile spines. Our results show that despite no difference in body size associated with male social status, baculum width is significantly larger in dominant male bank voles than in subordinates. We also found evidence of positive allometry and a relatively high coefficient of phenotypic variation in the baculum width of male bank voles, consistent with an influence of sexual selection. By contrast, baculum length and three measures of penile spinosity did not differ according to male social status or show evidence of positive allometry. We conclude that dominant male bank voles may benefit from an enlarged baculum under sperm competition and/or cryptic female choice and that differences in penile morphology according to male social status might be important but as yet largely unexplored source of variation in male reproductive success.via BBClast_img read more

How to fix Google Chrome black screen issues

first_imgHow to fix Google Chrome black screen issues by Martin Brinkmann on December 12, 2017 in Google Chrome – Last Update: December 13, 2017 – 31 commentsGoogle Chrome started to act up weirdly on one of my machines recently. I noticed display issues at first; Chrome would not show the content of sites I opened unless I changed the window size of the browser first.Yesterday, things got even weirder as the browser showed a black screen only when I started it. I could use the right-click context menu and access Chrome menus, but did not see any page content regardless of what I did.Fix Google Chrome black screen issuesBelow is a screenshot of the Chrome browser window when I started it on a machine running Windows 10 Pro.A restart of the web browser or the system did not resolve the issue. It was a display issue, clearly, and the first thing that I tried was updating the graphics driver to see if it would resolve the issue. Turns out, it did not.I then tried reinstalling Chrome, but that did not resolve the issue either. The next thing I did, did however. I set the compatibility of the process to Windows 7 which resolved the black screen issue in the web browser.Here is how you can change the compatibility level of the Chrome process on Windows machines:Right-click on the Chrome shortcut and select properties. If you right-click on the Chrome icon pinned to the taskbar, you may need to right-click on Google Chrome again when the context menu opens before you get a chance to click on the properties entry.Switch to the compatibility tab in the Properties window.Check the “run this program in compatibility mode for” box.Select Windows 7 from the list of available operating system versions.Select apply, and then ok.Note: If you notice that the issue is fixed temporarily only, open the properties dialog again and click on “change settings for all users” to fix it permanently.Start Google Chrome to find out if the issue is resolved. If it is not, you may want to try and set the compatibility mode to another version of Windows, e.g. Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 8, and try again.Setting the compatibility to Windows 7 resolved the black screen issue in Chrome on the system. I noticed however that the directive was not saved properly. A recheck of the compatibility mode menu revealed that the box to run the program in compatibility mode was not checked anymore. Still, the issue was resolved despite that. SummaryArticle NameHow to fix Google Chrome black screen issuesDescriptionChrome displays a black screen window?

Functional MRI May Help Identify More Effective Painkillers for Chronic Pain Sufferers

first_img February 5, 2016 — New research may allow more effective and safer pain medications to reach patients who suffer from chronic pain sooner. According to a recent study published in Anesthesiology, the official medical journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to measure the brain’s neural response to pain may be a viable tool for evaluating the effectiveness of new pain medications during the early stages of human drug development. This could provide the needed objective evidence to prevent the premature discarding of potentially beneficial therapies.“Many potential pain-relieving drugs identified in preclinical research fail to reach the market because of a lack of early objective evidence that shows whether a drug is effectively reaching target pain receptors in the body and regulating chronic pain mechanisms,” said Vishvarani Wanigasekera, M.D., study lead author and clinical post-doctoral research fellow, Nuffield Division of Anaesthetics, University of Oxford, England. “We have used noninvasive fMRI to successfully obtain such evidence that we hope can help to prevent the premature discarding of potentially effective pain relievers, as well as avoid exposing patients to ineffective ones.”Currently, patient-reported pain relief is the primary outcome measure used in human drug development studies to assess whether a pain-relieving medication is effective. However, due to their subjective and context-dependent nature, self-reported pain perception and relief is subject to many influences, in addition to the actual pain-relieving effectiveness of the drug. Early drug development studies typically involve a small sample size. When subjective pain reports are used as the sole outcome measure in these studies, researchers can easily miss effective compounds that might work well in the population at large.In the double-blind, randomized study, researchers induced a phenomenon called central sensitization and some symptom-like features of neuropathic pain, a complex chronic pain condition, on three separate occasions in 24 healthy volunteers. These results were achieved by applying capsaicin cream, a topical irritant often used to produce similar characteristics of neuropathic pain in an experimental setting, on the subjects’ skin.Prior to capsaicin cream application, subjects either received a single dose of gabapentin, which is considered effective and a first line treatment for neuropathic pain; ibuprofen, which is generally not considered an effective treatment for the condition; or a placebo. Researchers then assessed the effect the drugs or placebo had on the brain’s neural response to pain using fMRI in addition to patient-reported pain relief.They found in the absence of behavioral measures distinguishing which drug was most effective at low subject numbers, the imaging responses were clear. Pain-relevant neural activity was significantly reduced in the subjects who received gabapentin, even with extremely low subject numbers, highlighting the potential for fMRI to make a drug’s effect clear in small cohorts.The authors acknowledge the mechanisms and neural activity involved in the expression of pain in neuropathic patients is not exactly the same as in the healthy subjects with capsaicin cream-induced pain. However, similar studies in early human drug development can determine whether a drug has the ability to affect relevant neural activity in the brain.“There is a clear need for more effective, safer pain relievers,” said Wanigasekera. “Chronic pain is a very common condition.

Emirates worldclass wine programme continues to

first_imgEmirates’ world-class wine programme continues to wow customers with a range of exclusive wines and champagnes offered on board and in its lounges. Over the next few months, those travelling on Emirates can look forward to an especially stellar wine list. This includes prestigious wines such as the Château d’Yquem 2005, 1963 Graham’s Colheita Port, Dom Pérignon 2005 Rosé, Dom Pérignon 2009 Vintage and Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2008.Emirates has built relationships directly with some of the world’s most prestigious châteaux and vineyards to handpick and secure these exclusive wines.On boardChâteau d’Yquem 2005This month, Emirates is bringing back one of the world’s most revered dessert wines, the 2005 Château d’Yquem from Bordeaux. It will be served in First Class and exclusively available on routes to Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand.A sweet white dessert wine from Sauternes in the Bordeaux region of France, the 2005 Château d’Yquem is a Premier Cru Supérieur (“Superior First Growth”). It gained a rating of 97 on influential critic Robert Parker’s 100-point wine rating scale, averaging as one of the highest scoring wines of all time.The dessert wine is the perfect addition to Emirates’ acclaimed wine list, reinforcing the airline’s commitment to serving passengers exceptional wines.Château d’Yquem 2005 has a deliciously pure feel, with juicy, inviting green plum, ginger, heather, creamed pineapple and ripe apple flavours all melded together and gliding through the lengthy finish, which echoes with lilting flowers and dried citrus notes.Dom Pérignon 2005 RoséDom Pérignon champagnes are a mainstay of the Emirates First Class Suites. As the number one global partner of Dom Pérignon, Emirates will be the only airline in the world to serve the Dom Pérignon Rosé 2005 for the next three months.The luxury cuvée will be available in First Class on European routes as well as on flights to USA and Canada. Dom Pérignon Rosé is made from Pinot Noir grapes grown in prestigious sites in Hautvillers, Äy and Bouzy and fermented as a great red burgundy, before being blended with exquisite blanc champagne from Premier and Grand Cru vineyards. This vintage emits tropical aromas of guava and curry leaves and is complemented by cocoa and toasted spices. It has remarkable length in the mouth, with a touch of liquorice and a backdrop of juicy, bitter blood orange.The Dom Pérignon Rosé 2005 will be paired with specially created canapés in First Class.1963 Graham’s Colheita PortEmirates will also be serving the 1963 Graham’s Colheita Port exclusively, as it will not be sold or available elsewhere. From the Douro Valley in northern Portugal, this vintage will be available in First Class across the fleet until October 2017.Colheita Ports are essentially aged tawny ports from a single year. In this example the year in question is 1963, considered a monumental vintage for port and acknowledged by many as the 20th century’s finest. Crushed in traditional fashion by foot in stone lagares (treading tanks), the grapes for this wine come from five vineyards. At the heart of the blend is the legendary Quinta dos Malvedos vineyard, bought by the Graham’s family in 1890 and perhaps the most coveted vineyard in the Douro Valley.The 1963 Colheita provides an intense complex nose of fig, walnut, coffee and a caramelised nutty edge, with hints of cigar box and toffee. The palate is beautifully balanced, full-bodied and sweet with a viscous, glycerol-laden texture and further notes of dried date and raisin on a long and luxurious finish.Dom Pérignon 2009 VintageEmirates is adding the Dom Pérignon 2009 Vintage to its First Class wine lists on medium- and long-haul flights from October. The 2009 vintage is the latest prestige cuvée to be served on board. Emirates previously served the 2005 and 2006 vintages.The silky, fruit driven 2009 expresses the warmth of the vintage, bursting forth with white stone fruits, guava and grapefruit zest alongside fresh toast and vanilla. Ripe and fleshy, the palate possesses a restrained power, showing lemon brioche, hints of nectarine, impressive vitality and incredible persistence.The Dom Pérignon 2009 Vintage will be paired with canapés exclusively created by the Emirates team and Dom Pérignon Executive Chef Marco Fadiga. Hot and cold canapés will be served with vegetarian options available. These include:Smoked Scottish salmon with chives and avocado creamGrilled venison with cranberries and smoked saltSweet potato tartlet with herbsHummus with lamb baharatBresaola with feta and cinnamon poached pearParmesan and truffle arancinoLounges at Dubai International AirportMoët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2008 in First Class Lounges in DubaiEmirates and Moët Hennessy have enjoyed a longstanding partnership of over 25 years and the airline has been serving Moët & Chandon Imperial Champagne in Emirates First Class lounges in Dubai. Due to the long-term partnership, Emirates will exclusively have the Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage 2008 available for a limited time in all three First Class lounges in Dubai.The vintage has been ageing in the cellars for seven years and has initial floral notes of linden, honeysuckle, and acacia with citrus nuances evocative of bergamot and mandarin zest along with a dash of anise and green tomato. It is followed by notes of just-ripe stone fruits – white peach, nectarine and Mirabelle plums. The bouquet is completed by gentle scents of pastry, brioche, frangipane, almonds and vanilla with a slight hint of white pepper.Moët & Chandon canapé pairingsThe Moët & Chandon Champagne lounge within the Business Class lounge at Concourse B Dubai International Airport will also feature specially developed canapés to be paired with four of Moët & Chandon’s finest champagnes. This includes Moët Impérial, Moët Rosé Impérial, Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage and Moët Nectar Impérial.To complement each champagne, chefs from Emirates Flight Catering and the inhouse lounge teams collaborated with Moët & Chandon’s Executive Chef Marco Fadiga to create a unique selection of canapés ranging from sweet to savoury.New canapés will be introduced quarterly including:Passionfruit crème caramelQuinoa salad with bresaola and parmesan chipsTomato marmalade, bocconcini, spinach & rocket oilPrawn cocktailScallop tartare with crispy capersCream cheese and grapes saladCitrus saladChicken rillettes with pineapplelast_img read more

President meets Accept LGBT

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades met on Thursday with a delegation of Accept LGBT Cyprus to discuss issues concerning the community, including gender recognition, discrimination in the work place and homophobic and transphobic rhetoric.The group expressed hope that a bill on gender recognition which would allow transsexuals to choose their gender would be completed by the end of the year. The bill is being prepared with the help of experts from the Council of Europe.Accept LGBT chairman, Costas Gavrielides, said that gender recognition is the most pressing matter and that the group met with Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou last month to discuss the new bill.As regards discrimination in the work place, Gavrielides said that important steps must be taken on behalf of the government and trade unions to address the issue.The group also told Anastasiades that amendments are necessary on the law concerning homophobic and transphobic rhetoric. Gavrielides said they discussed with the president the refusal of the attorney-general to take a stance on Archbishop Chrysostomos’ comments last year that he would tell school children that homosexuality was a sin and unnatural and that one ought to struggle to overcome it.Accept had lodged an official complaint against Chrysostomos with the attorney-general for promoting hatred based on sexual orientation or gender identity, which was dismissed last May. The attorney-general found that Chrysostomos’ remarks, while ‘intense’, were not directed at a particular group based on their ethnic background or religion.Gavrielides expressed his satisfaction that Anastasiades appears to have in mind the problems faced by the island’s LGBT community. He said that the president gave them reassurances on the actions the government is to take on these issues, following the elections.Earlier in the week Accept met with presidential candidate Stavros Malas.You May LikeMBA Degrees | Search AdsMBA Programs Online – See For YourselfMBA Degrees | Search AdsUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
