Naidu situation- Cat on the wall May 25, 2015 13:50

On Monday morning, Singapore Minister Eswaran has handed over a master plan of the Andhra Pradesh capital city to AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu.Not only Mr. Eswaran, many other Singapore companies did this job. Basing on this, now there is a buzz in the political houses that, what is CM doing with these many number of plans?, he may need a good number of days just to refer all these plans given by various companies, then when can he go ahead with the construction works?, would it be possible in the near future?, these are the questions raised by a few of the political critics. As per the information, it is known that, the foundation works for the project are going to be held in the first week of June and the officials had already announced that the construction works would begin soon. But the question is, when is that soon?Plans are many, but where is the time? Though, the intention of officials behind the word 'soon' is a few months away, there might not be any possibility to begin the construction as it takes a quality amount of time to refer and  analyze all the plans.On the other side, if the officials decide to start the construction soon, though not common people, a few of the intellectuals may raise a question that, when the project is so important and going to be historic, why the government is in a hurry to complete it without proper analyzing all the master plans?, few other intellectuals might even clarify that, it is just due to the negligence of AP government.Oppositions target Naidu?Now Naidu's situation is like a cat on the wall. If he start the construction immediately, oppositions may blame him raising the tag called 'negligence', on the other hand, if he delays it, the same oppositions may say that, Naidu is not able to keep up his promise and so cheating the people.  But, we know that Naidu is wise enough to face these type of challenges. Hope he finds a solution and comes out of the issue soon.By Phani

In the past five years, India's firms have seen a debt levels nearly triple but after two years of economic expansion, those firms are struggling to digest debt on their balance sheets. By Phani

Faster pulse rate linked to future risk of diabetes May 25, 2015 12:16

A new study has revealed the link between future risk of diabetes with faster pulse rate. The study was published in the International Journal of Epidemiology. The study was carried out by Penn State researchers for four years. During the study they observed faster heart rate of 73, 357 Chinese adults, that were positively associated with an increased risk of developing diabetes. They also observed faster heart rates were associated with impaired fasting glucose levels and a conversion from impaired fasting glucose levels to diabetes among the same population.US researcher Dr Xiang Gao, from Pennsylvania State University, said: "We found participants with faster heart rates, suggesting lower automatic function, had increased risk of diabetes, pre-diabetes, and conversion from pre-diabetes to diabetes."Each additional 10 beats-per-minute was associated with 23% increased risk of diabetes, similar to the effects of a three kilogram per metre square increase in body mass index (BMI)", he added.

Choice of food influenced by our memory, study revealed May 25, 2015 11:19

According to the study conducted by psychologists at the University of Basel, it was revealed that the influence of memories in food choice is driven by an increase in communication between two brain regions - the hippocampus and the ventromedial prefrontal cortex.By this study the researchers able to show that the influence of memory is mediated by increasing communication between the relevant brain areas. The researchers asked 30 hungry young people to rate 48 snacks - such as crisps, chocolate bars, pretzels and wine gums - in order of preference.The snacks were presented on a computer screen in association with a particular location. The subjects then went into a magnetic resonance image scanner and were asked to choose repeatedly between two snacks, for which only the location was shown.The subjects were thus forced to recall the snack associated with the location. The results showed that the subjects tended to prefer the snacks that they were able to recall better. The participants chose the snacks which they could recall better even if they had rated them lower in the initial task and therefore considered them less attractive. The team adds that the fMRI scans and mathematical modeling also provide an accurate understanding of how the hippocampus and the ventromedial prefrontal cortex interact with each other during decision-making. This model helped the research team to determine the strength of memory based activation during storage in the hippocampus. The study was published in the Journal Neuron. By Lizitha
