His tweet came in response to a tweet by Sanjeev Goyal who said India could have had a good lawyer with much less expense than the ointment would have to pay for fighting the case.

Ointment was India’s leading counsel to the ICJ, who heard the case of the Indian national Jadhav.

India has sent a petition to the ICJ, insisting that the death penalty be immediately suspended for Jadhav, fearing that Pakistan would be held before the ICJ hearing.

Pakistan claimed that Jadhav was an agent of the Indian External Intelligence Agency’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW). India has denied a link with the government.

The ICJ heard arguments Monday from India and Pakistan.

On 8 May, India has moved the ICJ against the death penalty, arguing that Pakistan had violated the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations by non-consular access to Khadhav.

India, on his appeal, said Jadhav had been withdrawn from Iran, where he was doing his business after his retirement from the Indian Navy.

#Rohtak: Is India getting inured to brutal rape incidents?

“I ask everyone not to give birth to girls to avoid seeing this day I see … every woman fears her daughters to date since these executioners are alive.” It is said that the mother of the 20-year-old girl who was raped and murdered in Rohtak, Haryana, while demanding the death penalty for the accused. Her heartbreaking statement not only captures her trauma and her impotence to what happened to her daughter but shows how she thinks the development of the law and order mechanism that India has put in place to ensure women’s safety. After 16 December 2012, gang rape and murder of young paramedic Jyoti Singh, rape laws were strengthened. But they appear to be deterrents: the day after the incident in Rohtak, another woman was dragged into a moving car in Gurugram and a gang raped by three men. While the brutality of rape Jyoti Singh made people go out to protest in large numbers, it seems there is a pause in this type of activism. Is India integrated with brutal incidents of rape, giving politicians the latitude to make all kinds of insensitive comments? Here is an example: According to a news site, Kerala Minister of Public Works, G Sudhakaran, announced that the number of cases of rape occurred if women were not “obsessed” by their mobile phones (thus ignoring their entourage ) If more men were to engage in agriculture. Logics: busy farmers do not have the time to rape women. Following the theory of the “chowmein-rape” of another legislator, which Mr. Sudhakaran will show a list of the most insensitive comments. As a recent Hindustan Times series – Let’s talk about rape – much emphasis, we must begin a conversation about sexual violence. In one room, a Delhi police officer wrote that it is for the police to impress a rape victim that the police are on their side. We must extend this argument: as citizens, it is our duty to impress a rape victim and his family on his side. As for gender-based violence, silence is not an option.

Let’s talk about racism | Don’t call us ‘chinky, momo, chowmein,’ says a Northeastern woman

We’ve never met, I’ve never heard his name, and they do not even have an idea to remember if I knew you in life. I learned of his death through the group SOS DO WhatsApp try to satisfy a rape victim who is also from Manipur. As I read this harrowing news, I met one of his nieces who wiped his tears and went to see where he was found dead in strange circumstances. But without proper investigation, the competent authorities have come to the conclusion that his death was natural, after all, you can not speak or tell him what happened to him. If I count count statistics, you are the number 11 women make you found dead in your rental housing in Delhi / NCR in 2016. Many women in recent years have also experienced the same fate. Let this be the last and I pray for security and justice for all women throughout the world. In life, you may not have achieved your dreams, but in death, you will remember with love your loved ones, you will always love, and in your hearts, you will take care of a place no one will fill. You are in good hands now, in the hand of God. Rest in everlasting peace!

Every Northeastern world based in Delhi and other Indian cities the metro is subject to discrimination. I wrote the previous letter on Facebook last year in honor of a victim of a particularly violent persecution. Since I come from the northeastern part of India and I belong to a minority race, I also suffered from racism, at least in its lighter forms. They called me “tickle”, “Momo”, “chowmein”, and more. If I think I am from South Korea, China and Japan, I am treated very well, but once I identified myself as Northeast, the problems started.

The stereotype of the Northeast Indians is common. If you are a young man from northeastern India, you have tattoos and made some hair, then you are labeled as an alcoholic or a junkie. If you are a Northeast woman with shorts and a shirt with sleeves and a half, you are automatically considered “cheap”, making unwanted advances. Even the polite smiles of these women are often misunderstood. All kinds of people from the Northeast are also a kind of insurrection. However, it is impossible for the Northeast to resist discrimination if this means putting their livelihood at risk; The economic opportunity is usually what led them to a place like Delhi in the first place.

Study: Birth Control Flushed Down Drains Creating ‘Transgender’ Fish

Study: Birth Control Flushed Down Drains Creating ‘Transgender’ Fish

Turn male fish into females through chemicals from birth control pills and make-up that are discharged through the drains, according to a new study.

The study of freshwater fish in Britain revealed that one-fifth of men now have female traits – including egg production, decreased sperm count and less aggressive behavior – because of chemical species species bending Present in the pill, cleaning agents, plastics and cosmetics, the Telegraph reports.

“We showed that some of these chemicals can affect health much higher in fish than we expected,” said Professor Charles Tyler of the University of Exeter.

“The use of specially created transgenic fish that allow us to see the responses to these chemicals in the body of fish in real time, for example, we have shown that estrogen is found in some plastics affect the valves in the heart.”

And contraceptives are not the only human pills that disrupt marine life – previous studies have shown that water antidepressants also put pears in their range, he added.

“Other research has shown that many other chemicals that are discharged by water treatment works may affect fish, including antidepressants that reduce the natural timidity of some fish species, including how they react to predators” “Said Tyler.

In World First, MDMA Will Be Used To Treat Alcohol Addiction In Clinical Trial

In World First, MDMA Will Be Used To Treat Alcohol Addiction In Clinical Trial

Scientists in the UK are preparing to carry out the world’s first clinical trial on potential therapeutic effects such as MDMA, the active ingredient in ecstasy, could have on those who take advantage of alcohol dependence.

Researchers at Imperial College London announced they had obtained ethical approval for a small trial of MDMA people with alcohol in the city of Bristol, The Guardian said last week. In the study, 20 patients – who are heavy drinkers whose prior treatment for non-alcoholism – will undergo psychotherapy sessions under the influence of 99.99% pure MDMA.

MDMA is an empathogenic or drug known to produce feelings of love, empathy and social connection. Researchers presume that this effect could help people with alcohol dependence to make greater use of psychotherapy sessions.

“It is the use of medications to enhance the relationship between the therapist and the patient, and this allows us to dig into the heart of the problems that lead to mental illness in the long run,” said Ben Sessa, clinical psychiatrist involved in the trial, Told The Guardian.

Previous clinical studies have shown that MDMA-assisted psychotherapy may be effective in treating trauma and anxiety. In a small study conducted in 2010, more than 80 percent of patients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder have stopped having symptoms of the disease after two treatment sessions after the use of supervised MDMA.

MDMA-assisted psychotherapy may be effective in helping people with autism who suffer from social anxiety, preliminary results suggest in a recent study. Compared with placebo, participants who took MDMA before going to therapy saw a “marked decrease in anxiety” after two sessions, according to Discover magazine.

In a 2015 interview with HuffPost, Rick Doblin, executive director of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, an organization dedicated to raising awareness and supporting research on psychedelic drugs for medical use, explained that MDMA can help traumatized patients .

There is a misconception that these drugs are dangerous because they are losing control of people, he said.

“But, in fact, we see that to keep things in control is often what prevents these disorders from healing,” said M. Doblin. “When someone is able to let go in their normal direction to control their emotions and not to feel things or take things, as an amazing healing can take place.”

With a Tick Boom, It’s Not Just Lyme Disease You Have to Fear

With a Tick Boom, It’s Not Just Lyme Disease You Have to Fear

Everyone knows Lyme disease. But experts say the United States can be at a bad tic train station this summer, raising concerns about Lyme and other diseases transmitted by horrible ticks, including the Powassan virus, which causes encephalitis and can leave the People with permanent neurological damage.

“This spring certainly looks worse than others I remember,” said Catherine Wiley, chief of the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center general pediatrics. “People come to the field with a lot of ticks on them.”

When we think of ticks, we tend to think of deer, but Richard S. Ostfeld, a senior scientist at the Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook, New York, said it really was mouse.

He studied the ecology of the white-footed mice population for 25 years. Every four or five years, he said, there is an overwhelming rubber culture, so more mice survive the next winter, breed and reach what he calls the “pest levels of mice” in summer.

These mice will be the main source of infection for tick larvae larvae in August and can join many mammals and birds, who try to prepare them. Mice “are merely tedious hairdressers,” said Dr. Ostfeld, so his ticks tend to survive. These tick larvae then become pupae and remain dormant for the following winter.

Then in late spring until early summer, the nymphs start feeding. These nymphs, larvae infected by mice, transmit the infection to humans.
“We are likely to see more marks, and many of us have already begun to see more ticks for transmission infections,” said Dr. Nicholas Bennett, head of the Division of Infectious Pediatric Immunology at the Children’s Medical Center Connecticut.

“By far the most common infection I see is Lyme,” said Dr. Bennett. The bacteria is present in many ticks – more than half of them in parts – but only about 3 percent of tick bites lead to infection.

Once the rod is attached and begins to feed, bacteria must undergo maturation within the tick before transmission is possible, so it will take at least 36 hours from the time in an infected tick bites until Lyme disease can be transmitted, so worry about Lyme if you find and remove a patch shortly after a child has been out. (On the other hand, if you find this check, you are reminded that it is in an endemic area and there may have been other bites.)

The classic symptoms of Lyme disease is the rash called migratory erythema. However, the diagnosis is not always obvious. “Half of the people who have clear Lyme do not remember they have never been bitten and have a rash,” said Dr. Bennett.

If a child does not improve with the usual antibiotic treatment, doctors may suspect a second infection, such as babesiosis and anaplasmosis, since some ticks carry more than one disease and, like the first-line antibiotics we use in children in Lyme , Treat other tick-borne infections.

Anaplasmosis and babesiosis are less common, according to Dr. Bennett, although regional infection rates may vary. And Powassan, although it is the rarest, is alarming, since it can happen so quickly, and because, being a viral infection, there is no antibiotic treatment.

Detailed information on all diseases transmitted by ticks is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

Nevada’s rollicking marijuana rollout still going strong

Nevada’s rollicking marijuana rollout still going strong

LAS VEGAS – Recreational marijuana sales have exceeded the expectations of store owners in the Las Vegas area who have experienced long queues outside their clinics since Saturday when Nevada became the fifth state to sell pots for the public.

This movement started a market expected to be driven by tens of millions of visitors each year the city of sin.

Monday compulsory pot Customers have been lined up before the dispensaries are opened. Some tried to make their first purchase from Saturday, and others went shopping for a few seconds. Tourists and locals took advantage of the change in state law.

“I’m very happy about how sales have gone and continue to go, especially given the fact that the word has not really gotten ahead of time,” said Andrew Jolley, President of the Nevada Association Dispensary store owner. “The public had only a few weeks in advance, while Colorado had a year to prepare.”

The demand for recreational marijuana was such that clinics had to turn to clients over the weekend, and at least one extended their hours of operation. The clinics reported 45-minute times waiting for an hour on Saturday afternoon and Sunday for up to 20 minutes.

The Euphoria wellness clinic was 50 people waiting to shop in downtown Monday. Their Marketing Coordinator Jim Ferrence said the Budiseurs helped at least 1,000 customers during the first two days of sales of legal recreational wines.

On average, customers buy marijuana flowers once a quarter and a sample of various groceries and concentrates, Ferrence said. “Everyone was calm, cold and serene, not unruly crowd at all,” he said.

People 21 and older with valid identification can purchase up to one ounce of marijuana. As of Friday, the state had 44 licensed dispensaries for the sale of recreational marijuana. Thirty-nine of these stores are located in the Las Vegas area.

More than 42 million tourists flock to Las Vegas businesses and delights every year. They along with visitors from the rest of Nevada should be near two of three recreational boat purchases in the state.

But people can use the drug in a private home, as it is still illegal to consume in public, including the Strip hotels and casinos. Violators face a misdemeanor summons and a $ 600 fine.

Fifteen tourists were transported on Monday in a bus for a three-hour trip at clinics in the Las Vegas area. The “Cannabus” led visitors to two stores with which they have agreed to allow runners to skip the lines.

Recreational marijuana sales did not cause a headache to Las Vegas for the weekend. The department did not deploy additional agents and did not track the crime rates, announced agent Larry Hadfield.

“It was a business as usual,” he said. “Everything went well as far as possible.”

The state can earn millions due to the sale of recreational marijuana, but tax collection data will not be available for several weeks.

Nevada joins Colorado, Oregon, Washington and Alaska to allow adults to purchase however, banned by the federal drug government. The market in the silver state should be higher than all others in the US, at least until the California begins sales.

“With all due respect to our responsibility in Denver, Seattle and Portland, Las Vegas is already the party capital of the world, and this is just an extension of that,” said M. Ferrence. “There is no doubt that demand will never be broken.”

 

Rains Lead to Mosquito Uptick

Rains Lead to Mosquito Uptick

Portland, Maine – A more humid normal spring spring in the northeast produced a large crop of mosquitoes, causing concerns of a corresponding peak in mosquito-borne diseases this summer.

The heavy rain that wiped out last summer’s drought put public health officials on alert when summer begins to unfold.

“Anecdote, everyone said they were devoured by mosquitoes,” said Sara Robinson, a Maine Center epidemiologist for Disease Control.

However, he was quick to add, it is too early to say whether there will be an increase in West Nile and eastern equine encephalitis.

However, rain has created ideal conditions for mosquitoes. It was the fourth wet spring recorded in the Northeast and the wettest April, record in Buffalo, N.Y., said Samantha Borisov, Northeast Regional Climate Center at Cornell University.

It was more rainy than usual in many other parts of the country, both in areas registering some of the same concerns.

Rains have saturated the soil in Maine, creating stagnant water required for mosquitoes, said Chuck Lubelczyk, Maine Medical Center Research Institute. Mosquitoes were especially bad on the Maine coast, he said.

There are other factors that must be brought together to create a scenario in which mosquito-borne diseases have become a major problem.

There has to be a concentration of good mosquito species with the virus, said Janet McAllister, fighting federal disease and preventing the division of the center transmitted by disease vectors.

All states in the United States have about 50 or 60 species of mosquitoes, and only a dozen are considered the main vectors of diseases that threaten humans.

West Nile can cause fever, headache and body, skin rashes and swollen lymph nodes, although sometimes people do not have symptoms. The EEA is less frequent but more dangerous, which can cause brain damage or death.

Zika, who is associated with birth defects, is another cause for concern, but has never been transmitted by mosquitoes in the United States outside of Florida.

New England is in a waiting period. Human cases of EEE and West Nile tend to appear in mid-late summer, if at all.

But viruses are everywhere this summer. West Nile cases were reported in humans in 11 states, and EEE has been detected in mosquitoes in Texas, Mississippi and Florida, McAllister said.

There were 143 Zika cases, all associated with travel outside the United States, he said.

Google DeepMind NHS medical trial broke UK privacy law

Google DeepMind NHS medical trial broke UK privacy law

A British hospital has not done enough to protect patients’ privacy, while exchanging data with Google, said the UK Information Commission (ICO).

The ICO has censored the Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust in data transmitted during the test a new way to detect kidney damage.

Among other weaknesses, ICO said the hospital had not adequately informed patients about how their data was used.

Confidence said to address the “gaps” in their data management.

Details of about 1.6 million patients have been provided to Google’s Deepmind division in the early stages of medical testing last year.

The information is used to develop and refine an alert, diagnostic and detection system that can detect when patients are at risk of developing acute kidney injury (ARI).

The test result was an application called Currents designed to help physicians identify patients at risk for ARI

In a statement, Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham, such attempts to creatively use the data had to be carefully managed.

“The price of innovation does not have to be the erosion of fundamental rights to privacy,” he said.

Trust has not been imposed as a result of the investigation, but is committed to making changes in the way it handles the data.

The hospital said it accepted the findings of the OIC and made changes to the way it processes the data

He added that he was “satisfied” that the ICO has ceased to continue using the application flows to assist patients.

“We accept the conclusions of the ICO and we have already made great progress in dealing with the areas in which they have concerns,” he said.

“We believe passionately in the power of technology to improve patient care and this has always been the driving force of our current application.”

In a statement, Google said it welcomed the “thoughtful resolution” of the case and added that it would consider its participation in hospitals.

“We have underestimated the complexity of the NHS and the rules for patient data and possible fears of a leading company known in the health field,” wrote Dominic King, Deepmind Clinic Responsibly Health, and Mustafa Suleyman, Co-Founder of Deepmind.

According to the statement, the AI ​​division had focused on creating tools for physicians rather than how the project should be determined by the needs of patients and the public.

“We had a problem, and we have to do better,” they wrote, and then outlined the steps the division would take to ensure that future trials took more details on privacy issues.

The agreement between Royal Free and Deepmind was made public in February 2016 and sparked controversy over the amount of information about patients shared without public consultation.

In March of this year, an academic report on the path of patient data had been processed found “deficiencies” in the way the information was transmitted.

The authors said it was “inexcusable” that patients were not informed of what had happened to their data.

At that time, Google DeepMind said report had “big mistakes” that distorted the way he and Royal Free had used data.
