The officials of the joint High Court of the dual Telugu states said that, AP officials should take a proper decision about the separate High Court, within the next six months.Right from the bifurcation of Telugu states, the separate High Court issue is in the news. Telangana officials like Kavitha, demanded that Hyderabad High Court should be owned by Telangana state itself, but not the dual states.Regarding the separate High Court issue, Telangana MPs protested opposite Parliament. Reacting to the issue, Hyderabad High Court now released a notice that, to decide about a new High Court in Andhra Pradesh state, within next six months. Meanwhile, can setup circuit benches - HC On May 1st, the court ordered that, “Hyderabad High Court will continue to be the common Court, till a separate High Court is formed in AP. It is not legal to construct two separate High Courts in Hyderabad itself, as the city belongs to Telangana. It is also to be remembered that, Hyderabad is not ruled by the central government, but the state government itself. Instead, the states can set up circuit benches.”Referring to that judgment, the officials put a time limit to four key issues like High Court building, administration building, judges residences and other court staff quarters. The explanation on all the mentioned above four issues, should be given within six months of court’s notice. Who should spend for separate High Court in AP? It is state or central?, which government should spend money on the construction of High Court in the state? This is one such question rotating in the political circles. “According to section 94 (1), Andhra Pradesh Reorganization act, central government should provide funds for High Court construction,” said AP government’s advocate general, P Venugopal. Within three months of release of the court’s notice, the central government is required to provide funds for AP government and the AP government is restricted to use those entire funds, solely for High Court construction only.       By Phani

JC Diwakar Reddy said that, special status for AP is a dream that can never be achieved and said that, if Pawan comes forward, the party members are ready to fight along with them.   Yesterday, the central government officials openly declared that, special status will not be issued to any Indian state, along with Andhra Pradesh. After such declaration, the AP MPs are spotted maintaining silence. But speaking to the media, a few of the TDP leaders expressed their confidence that, BJP declared the special status to AP soon. Within no time of those leaders' statements, today JC Diwakar Reddy made hot comments on special status issue saying that, AP special status is a dream to the state, and openly declared that it is impossible to get it. AP special status: JC satirical comments on Pawan On the other side, speaking about Pawan Kalyan comments on AP MPs regarding the special status, JC said that, all the TDP leaders are ready to fight for AP special status, if Pawan joins us. Expressing impossibility of getting special status on one side, and saying that, they are ready to fight for the special status if Pawan joins, seems that, JC is targeting Pawan unnecessarily. However, Pawan Kalyan has recently started Sardar movie shooting and promised the dates to the makers. So, it might be impossible to react on the special status issue in the near future. By Phani

PooP MD app invented to detect liver disease in newborns, says study July 31, 2015 18:45

A free smartphone app called PoopMD was invented to detect early symptoms of biliary atresia (BA) which is a rare disorder that accounts for nearly half of paediatric end-stage liver disease in the US.The researchers from the Johns Hopkins Children’s Centre reported they have verified that the free health app accurately reads, interprets and records the colour of a newborn’s stool as a possible early symptom of BA. Parents using the app can rely on it to help detect the symptomatic pale yellow to chalky grey stools that mean urgent medical assessment is needed.For the study of the app, the team first gathered the medical opinions of seven paediatricians who looked at 34 photographs of pale-coloured stool. Twenty-seven of the pictures were determined to be of normal stool, and seven were deemed bile deficient, showing high risk for BA. Later, one expert and three laypeople were asked to use the app on Apple and Android devices to look at and analyse the same pictures using a variety of smartphone models.    "These individuals were essentially asked to take a picture of the stool photograph and determine if the app identifies the photo as normal or pale," Mogul said.The study was published in the journal PLOS One.By Lizitha

New class of drug could help fight against obesity, says study July 31, 2015 18:15

Scientists have developed a new class of compounds that could help fight against obesity by preventing absorption of fat particles. Newly developed compounds called ‘micelle sequestrant polymers’ are administered to mice, which captures fat particles in the intestines and simply pass through the gut. In tests, mice who took these MSPs had nine to 10 times the amount of triglycerides, the main dietary fat, in their faeces than the control animals. Additionally, because the MSPs pass through the body unabsorbed, the researchers say they could provide a safe approach for long-term treatment.Tests on mice have proved positive and avoided the pitfalls of current drugs, including increased risk of cardiovascular disease and depression."We designed and engineered a new class of orally acting pharmaceutical agents, or micelle sequestrant polymers (MSPs), that could respond to the pH change in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and potentially sequester lipid micelles; inhibiting lipid absorption through a pH-triggered flocculation process," researchers said.The study was published in the journal Biomacromolecules.By Lizitha
