Infant’s social skills linked to learning foreign language July 29, 2015 14:47

A new study performed by the Researchers at the Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences (I-LABS) at the University of Washington have revealed that Infant’s social skills play a key role in helping them learn a foreign language. The researchers proved that early social behaviour called gaze shifting show a boost in a brain response that indicates language learning in kids. For the study, babies from English speaking households attended foreign language tutoring sessions. Over four weeks, the 17 infants interacted with a tutor during 12 sessions of 25 minutes each. The tutors read books and talked and played with toys while speaking in Spanish. The more gaze shifting the babies participated in during their tutoring sessions, the greater their brain responses were to the Spanish language sounds. "Our findings show that young babies social engagement contributes to their own language learning - they're not just passive listeners of language," said co-author Rechele Brooks, assistant professor at I-LABS. The study was published in the journal Developmental Neuropsychology.By Lizitha

Rishiteshwari case: Students can send mails   Restricting the students from entering into the university, the officials said that, they can send the mails, regarding Rishiteshwari issue and can therefore participate in the case.  Reason behind late response on Rishiteshwari case Right from Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, no leaders including KCR and Jagan, stressed upon Rishiteshwari issue. This led to few buzzes in the political circles. But maybe as the issue went viral into the media and public are targeting the leaders, the enquiry is started on the case. But, the actual truth might not come out and might try to hide many facts, as it is already an open secret that, the Nagarjuna university students are backed by top political leaders. Hope, let us hope that, the enquiry will not have a drama end and right justice takes its form.By Phani

Drunk and Drive: Social service is punishment July 29, 2015 12:39

“The people who are caught in Drunk and Drive case, will be ordered to do the social service from now on,” the court declared.In Hyderabad, there are numerous Drunk and Drive cases registering day by day and regarding this, the court was giving the common judgment all these days, i.e., imprisoning or paying fine. But even then, there is no such fall in the number of Drunk and Drive cases. So to resolve the issue, the court had introduced an approach, which is making the people, who caught in Drunk and Drive cases, to do social service. However, this is already being implemented in the foreign countries. Drunk and Drive case: What kind of social service? The people who caught in Drunk and Drive case, will be ordered to hold the placards, on which it will be written, not to drink and drive. This idea was already implemented in a few places in Hyderabad, as ordered by the 3rd metropolitan magistrate court. Drunk and Drive case: 35 members already participated in social service Under 7 police stations in the city, a total of 35 members are caught in Drunk and Drive case. Goshamahal 6, Kachiguda 5, Sultan Bazar 4, Meer Bazar 4, Nallakunta 14, Tolichowki and Nampally 1 each, are the areas in Hyderabad, where the number of Drunk and Drive cases are registered. Hope at least, this new approach brings a change in the citizens, who are losing their valuable life in the accidents, due to driving while drunk.By Phani

Koh-I-Noor diamond, time to return it back to India July 29, 2015 12:27

British Indian MP Keith Vaz, on Tuesday the 28th July 2015 has called for the world-famous 'Koh-I-Noor' diamond to be returned to India during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's UK visit in November. Vaz's comments were made in response to Congress MP Shashi Tharoor's recent speech at the Oxford Union calling for the Britain to pay reparations to India for its 200 years of brutal colonial rule."I welcome Dr Tharoor's speech and the endorsement of its message by Prime Minister Modi. I share their views. These are genuine grievances which must be addressed. Pursuing monetary reparations is complex, time consuming and potentially fruitless, but there is no excuse for not returning precious items such as the Koh-i-Noor diamond, a campaign I have backed for many years," said Vaz, the longest serving British MP of Asian descent."What a wonderful moment it would be, if and when Prime Minister Modi ends his visit, which is much overdue, he returns to India with the promise of the diamond's return," Vaz said.Koh-I-Noor is considered to be one of the oldest and most famous diamonds in the world, with a long history. There have been demands for its return to India, most recently in 2013 when British Prime Minister Cameron visited India.India has claimed the diamond and said that the Koh-I-Noor diamond was taken away illegally and that it should ought to be given back to India. When Queen Elizabeth II made a state visit to India for marking the 50th anniversary of independence in 1997, many Indians in India and Britain demanded the return of the diamond.The Koh-I-Noor or Mountain of Light is a diamond that was mined at Kollur Mine, in the present state of Andhra Pradesh in India. It was originally 793 carats when uncut and is the largest known diamond. It is now a 105.6 metric carat diamond, weighing 21.6 grammes in its most recent cut state. In 1852, Albert the Prince Consort ordered it to be cut down from 186 carats. The diamond was originally owned by the Kakatiya dynasty, which had installed it in a temple of a Hindu goddess as her eye. The diamond was later confiscated from its original owners by various invaders. Today the diamond is a part of the Crown of Queen Elizabeth.History dates its origin back to Babar’s time in 1526, whose ancestors acquired it from the Raja of Gwalior in the13th century. The diamond has seen several battles. In India it was mounted on the peacock throne, the Mughal throne of India but was later robbed by Nadir Shah who took the diamond to Persia in 1739. However, it found its way back to Punjab in 18th century, where Britishers spotted it. Since then, the diamond was used by several Queens and has become part of British Royal Family’s tradition.By Premji

Manthra2 into theaters this Friday July 29, 2015 10:45

Manthra is the film which took Charmi to the next level. It made Charmi an overnight star and is also one of the reasons for her survival in the film industry till date.But after that film, though she tried to do lady oriented flicks, none clicked as Manthra. So the makers had planned to do a sequel to Manthra film and that is Manthra2.The film completed its post production and censor too, and was awarded ‘A’ certificate. Mantra2 release date is fixed to this Friday. It is releasing in all the major theaters, amidst of good expectations among Charmi fans.There are very rare instances in Tollywood, where Suspense thrillers are rejected and as Mantra already had its brand in suspense thrillers, scoring a good success, there is an every chance for Mantra2 also, to be successful.    ‘2’ threat to Manthra2! No sequels of the super hit films in Tollywood secured a hit. It is not an exception to big films like Shankardada Zindabad and Arya 2 too. In fact, it was heard that, even Gabbar Singh2 was renamed to Sardar, keeping the 2 sentiment in mind. Even then Mantra2 dared to come up, adding 2 to title. Hope Manthra2 breaks the sentiment and proves that, no sentiments can stop a good film from being successful.   By Phani
