The ACB officials filed a petition in the Supreme Court, against the bail to Revanth Reddy.It is known that, TDP MLA Revanth Reddy was granted the bail by the High Court with few of the conditions and he was released out of the jail on Wednesday amidst of the positive welcomes from his fans. The ACB officials, who are from the very beginning against the bail, are now making all the attempts to cancel it. Regarding this, the officials filed a petition in the Supreme Court and the latter accepted it. If the reports are to be believed, the hearing on the petition filed by the ACB officials might be on Friday. According to the ACB officials, there might be chances of misleading the witnesses, if Revanth Reddy is left out. So from the very beginning, they were against his bail. But however Revanth managed to file a petition in the court regarding the bail and was successful in getting it.  In fact, even Stephenson, the prime witness in cash for vote scam filed a petition against Matthaiah, accused in the scam, but the court even cancelled that petition too. So it seems like, the TDP officials time is currently running.However, the court hearing and judgment on the ACB officials petition is yet to be heard. (Video Source: V6 News)By Phani

But I still supported for the party's growth. - I have been one of the key members in wishing a separate state of Telangana. After many people craving for the state for the years, you finally declared it. But as the decision was delayed for so long, the public turned against the party and lost confidence in the Congress party and its leaders in the state. - Though I was very confident that, I will lose in the elections, I still participated to respect the party’s order. The result, I received did not surprise me as it was expected anyway. - I wish to work for the Telangana state development and for the welfare of the people. But that is not possible, staying in the Congress party, as people are not in a position to believe the party anymore.- The credit of achieving Telangana can be owned by KCR, who made an identity with the movement.

Hi-tech overnight lenses that tests blood sugars and give eye drops also July 01, 2015 20:43

Scientists are now trying to come up with a new range of hi tech contact lenses that can do more than just help you see. This “more” includes stopping your eyesight getting worse checking your blood sugar levels, and even zooming the sight.Let’s have some hands-on information on this:Overnight hard contact lenses is a one-stop solution for many of your eye concerns. For children who have short-sightedness, (this causes distant objects to appear blurred while the close objects can be seen clearly), there may be a rather ingenious solution: overnight hard contact lenses, which correct the eyes as the child sleeps so they don’t need glasses or lenses during the day.Overnight lenses can be worn by adults with short-sightedness, but this is purely to correct vision to avoid glasses the next day and can’t prevent the condition as their eyes are fully formed.The silicone lenses alter the shape of the eye, a process known as Orthokeratology. They press on the cornea, the clear part at the front, which becomes misshapen with short-sightedness, reducing its curvature.And while not a cure, if used while the eye is growing, overnight lenses may prevent or slow down short-sightedness.‘You wake up with perfect vision, allowing the lenses to be removed during the day. 'The effect is rapid, providing good vision within a few days. With regular use, the effect can last for two to three days without re-applying the lenses.’Overnight lenses can be used from the age of five (when children are deemed to be ‘responsible’ and won’t take them out). They can stop wearing them once their eyes stop growing.The overnight lenses, which are usually changed every six months, are available privately from some opticians and cost around £200 to fit and then £40 a month for check-ups and cleaning solutions.Children may be able to claim an NHS allowance of up to £56.40.Also the lenses helps protect the eyes from the harmful effects of the sun as UV protection is added to half of soft contact lenses.The advantage they have over sunglasses is that they protect the whole eye; with sunglasses, UV rays can get around the sides (ideally, you would wear UV blocking contacts with sunglasses).ACT AS BUILT-IN BINOCULARSScientists from Switzerland are developing contacts with a built-in magnification for patients with AMD.The hard lenses magnify what you see by up to 2.8 times and work in conjunction with ‘smart’ glasses, which are activated by the wearer’s winks.Wink the right eye to turn on the zoom, wink the left eye and the zoom is deactivated, bringing it back to normal.‘We think these lenses hold a lot of promise for low vision and age-related macular degeneration,’ says Swiss researcher Eric Tremblay.Measuring pressure in the eye is a routine part of eye checks for everyone over 40.This is to check for glaucoma, an often symptomless and potentially blinding condition linked to raised pressure in the eye. It’s caused by a build-up of fluid that damages the optic nerve.Usually pressure is checked using an air-puff test, where a machine puffs air into the eye and measures the resulting flattening of the eyeball.However, just like blood pressure, eye pressure can change if the patient is worried in the consultation - known as so-called white coat syndromess.People who wear contacts are more prone to eye infections than non-wearers. It's thought wearing contact lenses may interfere with the delicate balance of bacteria that live naturally on the eye’s surfaceSwiss company Sensimed has devised contact lenses that continuously monitor the pressure at the back of the eye. The soft lenses, known as Triggerfish, contain a sensor that gathers 288 pressure readings over 24 hours.It’s thought that continuous monitoring may identify glaucoma patients most at risk of the disease rapidly progressing — these are people with consistently raised pressure or who have dramatic changes in pressure.As Michael Bowen, director of research at the College of Optometrists, explains: ‘Glaucoma is a leading cause of sight loss and has no symptoms.‘These lenses could be useful for patients identified as being at high risk of glaucoma, such as those with a family history, because they build up an accurate picture of pressure in the eye.’ADMINISTER EYE DROPSAnyone who has ever used eye drops knows that it is virtually impossible to ensure all the drops stay in the eye. Researchers from the University of California estimate that only 5 per cent of eye drop medication for glaucoma reaches the affected area, so doses prescribed are far greater than needed.To overcome this, researchers have developed contact lenses embedded with microscopic diamonds loaded with the glaucoma medication timolol maleate.When the medication comes into contact with an enzyme in tears, this triggers the slow release of the drug into the eye.Mr Bowen says these lenses could be of great benefit to patients with glaucoma, allergies or eye infections.‘Eye drops are commonly prescribed, but it can be difficult to know if you’ve taken the right dose because they can spill out of the eye,’ he says.As anyone who has ever used eye drops knows, it is virtually impossible to ensure all the drops stay in the eye - but some contact lenses can helpFinger-prick tests to check blood sugar (glucose) levels are a daily ritual for many people with diabetes.Now scientists from Google and Alcon, part of the pharmaceutical company Novartis, are working on a hassle-free method of checking glucose levels with a contact lens that can measure glucose in tears.It uses a miniaturised glucose sensor - so small it looks like bits of glitter - embedded between two layers of soft lens material and a tiny wireless antenna, thinner than a human hair, which connects remotely to a smart phone or computer.Researchers are also working on integrating tiny LED lights into the lenses, which could light up to indicate that glucose levels have crossed certain thresholds, indicating the patient should have another dose of insulin. - Manohar

Why Gautam Gambhir is in Australia? July 01, 2015 20:34

Gautam Gambhir, as we all know is a man of studiousness. His never give up attitude has won the accolades in the last world cup. For some reasons, he is far away from the national team. But not his efforts to get the opportunity. The leftie has travelled over 7000 kilometers in a bid to make a return into the Indian team. The former India opener, who last played for India in August 2014, is training in Perth under the watchful eyes of Justin Langer.Interestingly, Gambhir had earlier sought BCCI's permission to play county cricket in England and was set to join Essex, but chose Australia in the end.Speaking to NDTV from Perth, Gambhir explains, "To be honest I can go to any length to improve my game, coming to Australia is still easy. I've always liked the Australian approach towards sport and cricket in general. They say as they see, are uncomplicated and do result-oriented training and that's what I am after"Langer, who retired from international cricket in 2007, is now an accomplished coach. Since 2012, as coach of Western Australia, he's seen his team win two Sheffield Shield titles and this year's domestic one-day title.Even the English Cricket Board was keen to have Langer join them as their national team's coach, but he declined citing family commitments."Training programme here at Western Australia is brilliant and Langer is a very loving head coach. He makes his boys do gymnastics and martial arts to improve their agility andd hand-eye coordination and footwork", Gambhir tells NDTV. "I too had a bit of fun doing them. Apart from that I bat a plenty in the nets to bowling machine"As players, the career's of the two left-handers coincided, albeit briefly. And the similarities between them are hard to miss."Yes, I see a lot of myself in him (Justin Langer). He's intense like me, loves batting like I do. I like him for his work ethics and the fact that he is very uncomplicated"With close to 600 runs in the last Ranji season, Gambhir made all the right noises, but failed to get the nod of the national selectors. So, at 33, does he feel he has a second wind in him to help him make a comeback into the Indian team?"It's only over when you think it's over. I am hungry for this game and more success for India. I want to be a part of the team that dominates teams not only in India but abroad as well. Its a dream to be a part of the Indian team that beats Australia in Australia and likewise England, South Africa etc"Gambhir plans to train with Langer till the second week of July. - Manohar
