Soy intake don’t improve asthma May 28, 2015 13:19

Previous studies have suggested that soy intake leads to decreased asthma severity. It was disapproved by the recent findings by the study conducted by the Northwestern Medical medicine and the American Lung Association Asthma Clinical Research Network, published Tuesday in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). "You are what you eat, but that's a whole constellation of foods, not just a single food or a single component of a food," said first author Lewis Smith, professor of medicine at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.The study examined the effects of soy in 386 adults and children aged 12 or older with poorly controlled asthma. All were taking medicine to treat their asthma but none were consuming soy. In the randomized study, half of the participants took a soy isoflavone supplement twice daily for six months, and the other half took a placebo. "This study highlights why it is so important to perform well-designed, placebo-controlled studies when associations are reported between specific nutrients and disease outcomes," Smith said.By Lizitha

Balakrishna is the one who has a huge craze among the mass audience. A single punch dialogue uttered by him would be sufficient to snap the house full boards at the theatre. But it should be remembered that all these are possible only in movies but not live.Balayya had to face this situation in ‘Mahanadu’ yesterday. The actor cum politician was restricted to enter from the main entrance of the venue where Mahanadu is being held. Police stopped him at the surrounding of ‘Telugu Vijayam’ and asked him to go from the other way.But, Balayya who is very firm with his decision to go from the main entrance, fought with the police saying that he is an MLA. But Police said that, they have orders to not to allow anyone through the main entrance other than the Chief Minister. In fact, Balayya’s driver got ready to reverse the car, but the action hero restricted him to do so. Later, the police explained the situation and Balayya had to drop from his decision and finally turned his vehicle towards the back door. In fact, it is not only Balayya but many other MLAs had faced the similar situation at the entrance. Compared to the previous years, the security measures for Mahanadu have been increased this year. However the reason behind this is anyway prevent serious issues at the entrance. Hope the MLAs understands it and act accordingly.By Phani

23-year old Yaduveer is Mysuru's New Maharaja May 28, 2015 11:26

The 23-year-old Yaduveer Krishnadatta Chamaraja Wadiyar will be crowned today as the new Maharaja, becoming the head of the Wodiyar family. Yaduveer will ascend the Bhadrasana, a silver throne on May 28 between 9.30 am and 10.35 am at the Kalyana Mantapa of Amba Vilas Palace, Mysore.The young man, who is a graduate from a University on the east coast of the United States, said that he was interested in promoting tourism in the area - and that he needed time to get used to the rituals. His uncle, Srikantadatta Narasimharaja Wadiyar, took the last coronation in 1974. He died in 2013.The news fascinates many Mysoreans despite they knew about Republic of India. They keep faith in new Maharaja and trust that the family will preserve the traditions of the family. The Wadiyar dynasty started its rule of the kingdom of Mysore about 600 years ago. As the centuries roll down, the coronation of a new king has become a private affair in the Republic of India.“Ascending the Bhadrasana is a pre-requisite for one to ascend the golden throne. He will ascend the golden throne only during Navarathri Utsav,” Maharani Pramoda Devi Wadiyar  said. On the coronation, she said, “The ceremony will be carried out as per tradition as it was done 400 years ago, without any change. The dates of the ceremony were finalised only on May 20 followed by the consent of the gurus and family members. We had to rush as there were no good dates till November and since the ceremony was supposed to be held before Dasara”. “We are yet to finalise the list of dignitaries. We have not printed invitations due to time constraints. Hence we have written to Chief Minister Siddaramaiah inviting him to participate in the event. Yaduveer’s fiance Trishika Kumari will also participate. The royal family members will follow the community dress code. Arrangements will be made for a live relay on a 20 feet LED screen, seating arrangements will be made for over 5000 people outside the Palace to witness the coronation ceremony on May 28. There will be a reception at 7 pm at the main Darbar hall for the general public and well wishers of the royal family. Since Yaduveer is expected to visit all 15 temples in the palace premises before sunset, he will move around in a car at 3 pm,” she said.Dasara veteran Balarama will be participating in all Dasara rituals. “On May 27, various homas and rituals will be carried out, followed by an oil bath and kankana dharna and on the same day Paada pooja of Parakaala math guru Sir Abhinava Vaageesha Brahmatantra Swatantra Parakala Swami will be held. On May 28, the coronation ceremony will be held followed by a few homas including Lakshminarayana, Umamaheswari, Vani Brahma and Srirama Taraka” she said. - Manohar
