Common blood test can predict future hypertension risk August 27, 2015 19:26

The researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine have found that a common blood test which is used to verify heart muscle damage from heart attacks could also identify future risk of developing hypertension. People with higher levels of the cardiac regulatory protein troponin T are more likely to be diagnosed with hypertension within a few years. For the study, the researcher’s analyzed blood samples obtained in the late 1980s and early 1990s from more than 5,000 people enrolled in a long-term multicenter research known as the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study. None of the participants had clinical diagnosis of hypertension at the beginning of the study although a small subgroup but about 27 percent had high-normal blood pressures. "Our data suggest that the high-sensitivity troponin test could flag people with normal blood pressure in the doctor's office who are at high risk for hypertension and other poor outcomes," Elizabeth Selvin, senior study investigator, said in a statement.The study was published in the journal Circulation.  By Lizitha

Women live longer than men, finds study August 27, 2015 19:03

Life expectancy of people in India has increased by 6.9 years for men between 1990 and 2013 and 10.3 years for women during the same period, according to the study. “Biologically, women are considered stronger and their survival tendencies are better than men. But sociologically, women tend to get treated far less than men in India,” said Dr. Nobhojit Roy, surgeon and public health specialist from BARC Hospital, Mumbai.According to the survey conducted in 2013, the top ten causes of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) in both sexes in India were from ischemic heart disease, COPD, TB, lower respiratory infections, neonatal preterm birth, neonatal encephalopathy, diarrhoea, stroke, road injuries, and low back and neck pain.The fastest-growing leading causes of health loss for Indian men between 1990 and 2013 were self-harm, ischemic heart disease and stroke, which increased at rates of 149.9 per cent, 79.9 per cent, and 59.8 per cent respectively. In the case of women, the largest increases among the leading causes of disability-adjusted life years occurred for ischemic heart disease (69 per cent), depressive disorders (66.1 per cent), and stroke (36.8 per cent). Only ischemic heart disease was among the 10 leading causes of health loss for women in 1990.The scientists found that stroke and depressive disorders are new causes of health loss seen in 2013 but not in 1990 in Indian women. “More awareness of mental health issues and better detection and documentation could be one of the reasons for depressive disorders to show up in the list,” said Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, Director-General of the Indian Council of Medical Research.By Lizitha

Srimanthudu new scenes August 27, 2015 16:42

Director Koratala Siva added new scenes in Srimanthudu movie, as per the demand of the audience. When a movie gets negative talk, the makers tries to trim the movie, by cutting a few of the boring scenes. But when a movie is successful and fetching good profits, the makers add the scenes, after a good number of days of movie release. Right from the beginning, this is being carried on as a tradition. In fact, in the recent times, Attharinti Daredi, Mirchi movie makers also added extra scenes after a month of release date. Now it is the time for Srimanthudu movie makers to follow this tradition.  Now, 3 weeks after the release of Srimanthudu, director Koratala Siva has added two scenes in the movie. Among them, one scene is Villain Sampath warning Rajendra Prasad and others to surrender their lands and the other one is, Shruti Haasan, Rajendra Prasad and the entire villagers are about to leave the village. The second scene is seen in Srimanthudu trailer in the beginning and also in Srimanthudu posters. But the director kept the scene aside during the editing, but upon the demand from the fans, he has now decided to put the scene, along with Sampath warning scene.      As of now, Srimanthudu crossed Attharintiki Daredi records recently, and is just next to Baahubali. The film is expected to make more profits, with newly added scenes.    By Phanindra

After Pawan, TDP leader is opposing land pooling now August 27, 2015 15:56

Deputy Chief Minister and revenue minister KE Krishna Murthy said that, he is against land pooling.If the oppositions oppose the land pooling, it might not hurt the government much. The same thing was happened, when YSRCP chief Jagan and other opposition parties opposed the land pooling. Pawan opposing land pooling is a major minus to Naidu  But when Pawan Kalyan, who supported TDP during the elections, and was one of the reasons for the party, to form the government in the state, opposed the land pooling, the issue went very viral among the TDP officials. A few of the TDP officials busted out on Pawan, but AP CM Chandrababu Naidu, stopped them from doing so, and in fact, he even is not able to counter Pawan, keeping in mind, the craze of Pawan, among the farmers and the youth. Naidu shock by KE Krishnamurthy opposing land pooling Now, not any opposition party or friend Pawan Kalyan, the own party member and that too Deputy CM Krishna Murthy, opposed the land pooling. The revenue minister, who is supposed to be the key member in CRDA, is kept aside by CM Chandrababu. It is known that, KE many times opposed Naidu’s policies on the public platform itself and this might be the reason for Naidu to skip KE in CRDA. Speaking about the issue, KE said, “I am against the land pooling, but as municipal administration minister Narayana, is performing the key role in this aspect, I am not able to come forward, already more than enough land is pooled from the land pooling, so the land acquisition should be stopped at least now.” KE intention behind opposing land pooling    It seems, for keeping KE aside in CRDA, he is showing his anger on the government by opposing the land pooling. However, after Pawan Kalyan opposition on land pooling, receiving opposes from the own party leader would show a negative impact on AP government.       By Phanindra

Pressure on supply of onions! Speaking to the media, an agriculture ministry official said, "After repeated reminders some states have approached the Centre, we had anticipated way back in February that there may be some pressure on supplies between July and September. Why were the states sleeping and not taking any step to bring down prices?" Only the central agencies Nafed and Small Farmers Agri-Business Consortium (SFAC) have taken interest free advance of Rs 8.75 crore and Rs 7.94 crore, till date, under the fund to procure onions.  Speaking about this, an official said, “last year, the onions price remained stable at Rs 40-45 per kg and the raids of the hoarders, had made an impact. But this has not been taken place this year. The average wholesale price was Rs. 48.76 per kg and retail price was Rs 56.26 a kg on Wednesday.        The Delhi government procured 2,511 tonnes of onions from the SFAC, has sought Rs 7.50 crore from the ministry.

Nannaki Prematho, which is just been as the working title of Jr. NTR and Sukumar movie, is now seems to be the actual title too.Confirming this, fight master ‘Peter Heins’ tweeted a post saying, “on the sets of Nannaki Prematho,” thus hinting indirectly, the film is titled the same. However the official announcement regarding this, is yet to be made.  After the leak of a few of the stills from the Nannaki Prematho movie, the makers are taking the best efforts to shoot the movie with the great security. No cell phones or any other gadgets are allowed in the shooting sets.   Sukumar earlier made successful youth entertainers like Arya, 100% love and also faced few flops through experimental subjects like Jagadam, 1 Nenokkadine. Especially 1 Nenokkadine was expected to be a huge entertainer, after watching the trailer, the movie has hyped more before the release. But the movie could not reach the expectations. Meanwhile, the star heroes like Pawan Kalyan and Mahesh babu are choosing the family entertainers like Attharintiki Daredi and Sukurudu respectively, and secured huge blockbusters. May be this made Sukumar too, to convince with the family subjects and right from the title itself, he is spilling the family fragrance.  However, the look of Jr.NTR with a stylish beard, is giving a new buzz, saying that the film might not be a family entertainer. Unless any one from the movie team comes out and speaks about the film, nothing can be estimated genuinely. By Phanindra
