Lifestyle diseases increases risk of infertility in women May 22, 2015 12:33

According to the study conducted by fertility expert Kshitiz Murdia of the Indira Infertility Clinic and Test Tube Baby Centre has revealed that “a rise in lifestyle diseases is increasing the risk of infertility among young women”. The study stated that links between the lifestyle diseases and infertility were gaining validation and Adenomyosis, Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOM) are the three most severe diseases that leads to infertility. In Endometriosis, the tissue lining inside uterus grows outside the uterus. PCOS is also a similar disease that leads to enlargement of the ovary.The symptoms were prevalent during menstrual cycle in the form of infrequent, prolonged or excessive bleeding accompanied with pain. The signs of these diseases also involve abdominal cramps and blood clots. In case of PCOS, excessive hair growth, acne and obesity can also be witnessed."There is strong evidence that factors like age, weight and smoking have adverse impacts on the general health and reproductive capability of a woman," said the study. "The most important thing to be done right now is not to let such disease go undiagnosed," said the study.There was an urgent need to pay heed to the problem as in many cases people do not get to know about it.

Naughty ideas basing 'Tank bund' traffic restrictions! May 22, 2015 11:59

If you cook a curry, its completion time can be estimated, if you watch a movie on TV, time can be estimated, in that sense most of such works can be estimated. But, basing the traffic in Hyderabad and Secunderabad, while traveling on the roads, if you estimate a particular destination time, and by chance, if you reached your destination at that time itself, take it for granted, that you are blessed. If you reach much quicker than your estimation, you are over blessed, but if you did not reach on time, then you might be the true citizen of twin cities. In fact, there would be more fellow human beings like you, so no need to worry at all. In spite of having these many traffic difficulties, the public is anyway managing to adjust to the situations. But, now the Telangana government has announced traffic restrictions on Tank bund to clean the sewage water. So the people who travel on these roads, had to face much more difficulty as the traffic gets diverted to other routes. Few of the diversion routes, are almost doubling the journey time.But, as the reason behind this diversion is for a good cause, hope the public understand and cooperate with the government's decision and adjust for just 10 days, that is from 22 May to 31 May.  Also, lets hope that, the offices and educational institutions understand the problems of their employees and students, who come regularly through Tank bund and also finally hope from the behalf of all offices and educational institutions, that no employee or student lie that they shifted their houses to the Tank bund route recently.By Phani

Terrorists against terrorists in J&K, headache for Pakistan sponsored terrorism May 22, 2015 11:36

India is aimed at intelligence-backed "targeted kills" against terrorists in J&K while militarily is dominating in the Line of Control with Pakistan, which has forced a 30% drop in cross-border ceasefire violations as well as infiltration bids. "The situation is pretty much under control. Our proactive attitude is to identify terrorists and then effectively neutralise them. Every case is handled firmly with clear-cut intelligence for targeted killings, ensuring minimal, if any, collateral damage," defense minister Manohar Parrikar said. He clarified that "terrorists should be neutralised by terrorists" or "kante se kanta nikalna (remove a thorn with a thorn)" and he did not mean covert operations being undertaken by "our own people"."Many terrorists are drawn into terrorism because of financial allurements, they are paid money for it. If such people are there, why not use them? What is the harm is using terrorists against terrorists? Why should our soldiers be in the front?", he said. The Army has been asked to undertake surgical strikes against terrorists, rather than conducting random operations. The Army has neutralised 110 terrorists in 2014, the highest such tally in the last four years.While talking about Pakistan’s dubious attitude, the defense minister said "the situation actually depends on how we react to it", India's "very firm" response to cross-border firing and abetment to terrorism is paying dividends. As per defense ministry figures, there has been a decline of 32% in Pakistan-initiated ceasefire violations and a decrease of 28% in "successful infiltrations" since the Modi government came to office in May last year.After the takeover of the new government, Pakistan is very much concerned about the retaliation it may get if they try any misadventure. During cease fire violations the India Army gave a befitting reply and the Pakistan Army was forced to wave white flags. Pakistan Army, which has the history of losing the wars waged against India and hence they use terrorists and wage proxy war against India. India’s retaliation and the excellent capability to initiate surgical strikes against the Pakistan sponsored terrorist have resulted in the total failure of Pakistan’s treacherous activity.

It's Virat Kohli Vs Mahendra Singh Dhoni in IPL 2015 May 22, 2015 10:52

People say absence makes the heart grow fonder. On the eve of the second qualifier here on Friday, it was found that not only the love for IPL was greater this year among the fans, getting the chance to watch a qualifier has injected more enthusiasm. Missing out on league matches has turned to be boon.Not only the fans, CSK management is also happy to get IPL engagements back to their captain's hometown. Asked if the familiar surrounding at captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's backyard will hold any advantage, CSK coach Stephen Felming said, "I hope so. We played a lot last year here obviously and it was key part of that season and some emotional connection because of skipper's home town. So we are hoping it will be good for us."But we know it's not all. When it comes down to competitive matches, I guess it's just the improvement from the side to make sure we do the job, it doesn't matter what surroundings you are in. If you don't play well enough you won't get the goodies. So we got to play well."Interestingly the fact that tickets are sold out may not guarantee a fullhouse. Some had booked the tickets hoping they will get to see Mumbai Indians and thus, former stars Sachin Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting and Jonty Rhodes, who have retired as players, here."Watching Dhoni vs Virat will be a treat for us. Dhoni didn't play in last match (India vs Sri Lanka ODI in November) here. We will get to see him tomorrow. But I wanted to see Mumbai here because of Sachin, Jonty and Ponting. They don't play now, so this was the chance to see these greats of the game here. Unfortunately we missed the chance. Many of my friends and acquaintances had booked tickets anticipating Mumbai Indians would play here," Pratap Kumar from Chutia said.However, Mumbai or no Mumbai, a cracker of a match awaits Ranchi in the sweltering heat with a promise to send the mercury higher. - Manohar

Coffee drinking helps in preventing erectile dysfunction May 22, 2015 10:37

Drinking two or three cups a coffee can help in boosting your romantic life, interesting research has found. The researchers from the University of Texas, men who drink two to three cups of coffee a day are less likely to have erectile dysfunction (ED)."We saw a reduction in the prevalence of ED with men who were obese, overweight and hypertensive. That was not true of men with diabetes."Diabetes is one of the strongest risk factors for ED so this was not surprising," explained David S Lopez, lead author and assistant professor at the University of Texas Health Science Centre at Houston (UTHealth).The researchers found that men who consumed between 85 and 170 milligrams of caffeine a day were 42 percent less likely to report ED. Those who drank between 171 and 303 milligrams of caffeine a day were 39 percent less likely to report ED compared to those who drank zero to seven milligrams a day. This trend was also true among overweight, obese and hypertensive men.The study appeared in the journal PLOS ONE.By Lizitha

Three Major Diffrences between Europe and U.S.A May 21, 2015 19:01

From North Ireland to London to Venice, You feel the connection between Sea, earth, and Sky, which is missing in Steel, Concrete, and soulless America.Why Europe is far better than America?1. Community over Convenience. Except in Great Britain, nowhere in Europe do people rush in. Especially in nations like Croatia, people would sit down together in cafeterias and exchange the words, while admiring the nature. Imagine a cool morning under the beaming sun with a cup of coffee surrounded by the pleasant nature.  And the typical morning in U.S.A: A rough dawn in the concrete jungle (human zoo is a better word), morning is a warning and a wakeup call for your day battle.2. Europeans eat well, but eat less. one of my friend told that if one eats Pizza in Paris, it is horrible, though the Pizza is from Paris (it’s his personal opinion). The standard Italian breakfast is a flaky, butter-laden croissant and a rich, foamy, whole-milk 6-oz. cappuccino. No one spares olive oil on a salad or a plate of fresh pasta. It’s a basic essential of Italian life. Since many love to be pedestrians, the calories are burned off and will be good on the stylish heels.3. Europeans are more relaxed. At times, it was irritating to find so many businesses (outside the main tourist districts, anyway) shuttered between 1 and 4 p.m. If you didn’t eat lunch by 2:00, you couldn’t find an open restaurant until 7:00 or 7:30. The always-on, always-open nature of American commercial culture is simply not the norm in Europe, even in the sophisticated, modern cities. In the oppressive heat of Rome in late June, it was easy to see the practicality of the ‘siesta’ tradition. A sluggish, heat-induced pall hung over the whole city, and those who were smart retreated behind thick stone walls to rest and rejuvenate. On Sundays, nearly everything is shut. Europeans learn to plan ahead so they can enjoy their culturally mandated - and embraced - leisure time. - Manohar
