Dhoni set for Zimbabwe tour May 24, 2016 11:06

Some of the choices made by the Indian selectors on Monday were perplexing. The squad for Zimbabwe has many youngsters, who have done well in the IPL, but Dhoni does not seem to have been assessed on merit. The selectors also did not pick a youngster to lead the side.The Dhoni-led side will play three one-day matches and two T20s in Zimbabwe.  All the players like KL Rahul, Karun Nair, Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal, have been rewarded for their excellent show in the IPL.Speaking on the issue, Chief selector Sandeep Patil said, “Dhoni has already retired from Tests and was very keen on being part of the side going to Zimbabwe. We also felt that the youngsters should get a chance to play under someone experienced like Dhoni.”Also read: Dhoni should be given choice: AzharuddinIn the IPL, Dhoni had a poor run, with his only innings of 64 not out, coming in the last league game, well after the elimination of the Rising Pune Supergiants.Dhoni in the World T20, has scored 89 runs in 5 games, and was a pale shadow of the formidable finisher of old. He in the last ODI series India played, against Australia, scored 86 runs from 5 games, thus making an average 17.20.Despite his comeback in the World T20, Yuvraj Singh was ignored, raising questions whether it is the end of the road for the all-rounder. “We are no one to say if it is the end of the road for anyone. He can still perform and win his place back,” Patil said.After facing an ankle injury in the World T20, Yuvraj Singh has also been average for Sunrisers Hyderabad, thus awaiting for a notable success since his comeback.Admitting that, they did not watch any IPL game from the stands, the Chief selector further said, “The problem with watching in the stadium is we cannot watch action replays. When we watch on TV, we get a better chance to assess the calibre of a youngster. It’s not that we are against the IPL, it is just that we prefer watching it on TV.”By Phani Ch

45% heart attacks are 'silent'- study May 23, 2016 16:30

According to the latest study, almost half of the heart attacks may be ‘silent’, displaying no symptoms, but increasing the death risk.As widely believed, pain in the chest, shortness of breath and cold sweats, need not necessarily be the common symptoms to clarify that it is a heart attack, it can even occur, even without any such symptoms, which are called a silent heart attack (when the blood flow to the heart muscle is severely reduced or cut off completely), the researchers said.“The outcome of a silent heart attack is as bad as a heart attack that is recognised while it is happening. And because patients do not know they have had a silent heart attack, they may not receive the treatment they need to prevent another one,” said Elsayed Z Soliman from Wake Forest Baptist Medical Centre in the US.The researchers analyzed the records of 9,498 middle-aged people, already enrolled in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC), a study analyzing the causes and outcomes of atherosclerosis - hardening of the arteries.For about 9 years, they even analyzed the heart attack differences between the blacks and whites as well as men and women and then observed that, 317 participants had silent heart attacks, while 386 had with clinical symptoms. The researchers further continued to follow the participants for over 2 decades, to track deaths from heart attack and other diseases.Also read: New app launched to help heart attack patients45% of the heart attacks come under the silent category, the researchers found, adding that, the chances of dying from heart diseases has increased by 3 times. Researchers found that silent heart attacks made up 45 % of all heart attacks and increased the chances of dying from heart disease by three times.Silent heart attacks are more common in men, but likely to cause death in women, the researchers say, adding that, these heart strokes have increased the chances of dying from all causes by 34 %.“Women with a silent heart attack appear to fare worse than men. Our study also suggests that blacks may fare worse than whites, but the number of blacks may have been too small to say that with certainty,” Soliman said.Silent heart attack symptoms are barely noticed but are detected later, when the patients undergo an electrocardiogram, to check their heart's electrical activity, researchers said.Once discovered, the silent heart attacks should be treated as aggressively as heart attacks with symptoms.“The modifiable risk factors are the same for both kinds of heart attacks. Doctors need to help patients who have had a silent heart attack quit smoking, reduce their weight, control cholesterol and blood pressure and get more exercise,”  Soliman said.By Phani Ch

Mega hero cameo in Chiru 150! May 23, 2016 13:18

Chiranjeevi comeback movie will reportedly have a mega hero cameo, which will occur, as a part of the story.Kathilantodu is almost finalized as the title of Chiru 150 and recently, even the pooja event has been completed. As the project is the comeback film of the megastar, the hype around it, was huge. But when the makers declared that, it would be a remake of Tamil super hit, Kaththi, the hype was reportedly not as before. The reason behind this is, the mega fans are curious to watch their star in a new subject and new role, but not in a role, that is already known to many. However, the project is still moving ahead and speculating the fans situation before, to increase the hype, director VV Vinayak has reportedly decided to land a mega hero in the film for a special role.While Ram Charan is producer of the film, there are more chances for him to take up the role, but Allu Arjun recently expressed his wish of acting in a small role in Chiru 150. This is now being considered as the hint to the fans that it is Bunny who is sharing the screen with the mega star.On the other side, the analysts opine that, the impact would not be much, if Bunny or Charan play a role in Chiru 150, as both the young heroes are several times spotted with Chiranjeevi. So, they opine that if Pawan Kalyan makes his time for his brother’s landmark film, it would naturally gain a huge hype, which will be helpful for the film to move on a success road. Pawan earlier performed cameos in Shankardada series, if he accepts this new one, it would be a hat-trick, for the audience to watch the two main pillars of the mega family on one screen.By Phani Ch
