first_imgKolkata: Concluding a long run of 88 years, Mitra Cinema of Hati Bagan in North Kolkata downed its shutters after the owners failed to bear the huge loss incurred while running it.With the closure of the single-screen hall, several memories associated with Barua-Kanan Devi, Chabi Biswas-Sandhyarani or Uttam Suchitra come to an end. The last show at the hall was screened on April 1. Dipendra Mitra, the proprietor of the hall, said he was unable to run the place because of his ill health. The century-old building is in need of immediate repair and firefighting and other modern equipments need to be installed as well. A rumour is making rounds that a high-rise building will come up at the prime location. However, Mitra refused to divulge anything regarding the same.

Rajatava Mitra remembers when as a college student he saw Deya Neya, a legendary Uttam Kumar starrer which also featured Tanuja, Chaya Devi, Kamal Mitra, Pahari Sanyal and Tarun Kumar, at Mitra Cinema in 1963. “We had to stand in a long queue to get a ticket for the opening show. It was a marvelous experience,” he said. In the past few years, several cinema halls that used to screen Bengali movies have downed their shutters. Purna, Bharati and Ujjala, three famous cinema halls in South Kolkata, have closed down. Alochaya, a cinema hall in Beliaghata has been pulled down to make room for a high-rise complex.

The Secretary-General was greeted by villagers and officials who arranged a ceremony in his honour. Expressing appreciation for their warm welcome, he stressed that all of their efforts toward him should be invested instead in the United Nations. He urged participants to think of themselves not just as residents of Eumseong county but citizens of the world. “Global is local and local is global,” he said. “You may live here in Eumseong county but you have access to the world.” Among those welcoming the Secretary-General was his 92-year old mother, Shin Hyun Soon, who embraced her son as well as other members of his party. The two held hands as they moved among the assembled gathering of friends and neighbours. The Secretary-General echoed his call for engagement during a visit to his alma mater, Chungju High School. Addressing students, he remembered the principal telling him to keep his head above the clouds and his feet planted firmly on the ground. “Dream big and be realistic,” he told the audience. The Secretary-General said his principal’s words had inspired him to enter an essay contest, which he won, along with the chance to travel to the United States, where he met President John F. Kennedy in what he called “the most inspiring moment in my life.” Mr. Ban said listening to the President speak prompted him to consider his own future and role. “I thought about how Korea was such a poor and underdeveloped country, I considered what I could do to make Korea a better place. And I decided to become a diplomat.” This was a distant goal for a poor boy from Eumseong county, he said, and one that demanded a willingness to try and beat the odds.Pointing out that the students present enjoyed far greater prosperity, security and opportunity than his generation, he asked that they not forget these gains were hard won through sacrifice. “Now you can go to better universities, you can live comfortably, but you should not be satisfied with that.” He asked the students to engage in helping to address hunger, poverty, climate change and other global threats. “Each and every one of you can be a critical agent of change,” he said. “You need to have a sense of reality and lofty dreams. This will be your road to success. I have never forgotten this maxim. Please build a bigger vision, be patient and do your best. Do not settle for your current environment. Look beyond your boundaries.” Mr. Ban specifically called on the students to see past the frontiers of the Republic of Korea. “Still one billion people around the world go to bed hungry. Millions of young people die from malaria. Many, many women die in childbirth. These tragedies are not acceptable and they can be fixed.” The Secretary-General said he had been deeply moved earlier in the day to visit a reconstructed version of his childhood home located in the nearby mountains. The thatched-roof structure where he grew up in a family of eight had two bedrooms, each accessible through a small doorway and separated by a kitchen which was centrally located so that its wood-burning oven would heat both when used. Members of his family were there to accompany him as he toured the reconstruction of his old home. The original had been demolished after it became too old to function. Reminiscing about life as a boy, he said, “It is amazing that they have built almost the same house. It really reminds me of my old days.” He recalled hearing words of advice from his elders there. “I still remember my grandfather was saying, ‘Ki-moon, you study hard. You study hard.’ He’s been always trying to tell me that.” The Secretary-General began his day in Eumseong by climbing a winding, paved path up the hill from his old home, past cornfields and rows of red-pepper plants, to his father’s burial site. Two straw mats laid out in front of the grave held a low wooden table prepared by his family with offerings of fresh fruit, cookies, meats, wine and incense. Following the Confucian tradition, the Secretary-General, his wife, and other members of their family took turns bowing solemnly two and a half times each to pay their respects to the deceased, and taking ritual sips of rice wine. Mr. Ban then walked back down the steep mountain path to an open-air wooden family shrine with a small courtyard at the front. Joined by other relatives, he removed his shoes before entering the building, which featured a row of flat cabinets against the main wall that opened to reveal paintings of his ancestors. There, too, participants bowed in silence, sipped rice wine in turn, and listened reverently as a family elder sang a traditional verse in memory of the deceased. 14 August 2011United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon went back to his roots today, visiting his hometown of Eumseong county in the Republic of Korea’s countryside, where he urged local residents to concern themselves with the world at large. read more

The number of Afghan refugees returning home this year from Pakistan under the United Nations refugee agency’s (UNHCR) voluntary repatriation programme is set to pass the 50,000 mark, bringing to some 3 million the total who have left Pakistan in the four-year-old programme, an agency spokesman said today.The voluntary repatriation of Afghans from both Pakistan and Iran is the largest UNHCR return programme ever, with over 4.5 million Afghans, including 1.47 million from Iran, having made the trip home over the last four years, Ron Redmond told reporters in Geneva.In Pakistan today, some 1,300 Afghans will pass through UNHCR’s Iris Validation Centres in Peshawar and Quetta, where their eyes will be digitally scanned before leaving for Afghanistan to ensure that returnee assistance is only paid once, he said. “Among this group will be returnee No. 50,000 for 2006.”More than 90 per cent of the repatriated Afghans have had UNHCR assistance, Mr. Redmond said.Some 2.55 million Afghan refugees remain in Pakistan and approximately 960,000 in Iran, he added. read more

first_imgPresentations from Northland Resources and SRK Consulting will focus on these key aspects of new mining operations at the forthcoming Euro Mine Expo event from June 12-14, 2012 in Skellefteå, Sweden. Jonas Lundström, Vice President of HR and Corporate Communications at will be speaking about the Pajala project when Northland will begin mining operations; while Richard Evans, Senior Environmental Consultant at SRK will talk about building mines in partnership with neighbours and government.“It’s difficult for us to ask anyone because they’ve been dead for a hundred years”, says Jonas Lundström about Northland’s challenge to realise Sweden’s biggest completely new mining project of modern times. He will be speaking about all the challenges and the short journey from starting construction to mining and delivery. The Kaunisvaara project outside Pajala in Norrbotten is Northland Resources’ furthest advanced mining project. Within the framework of the project, two new iron ore mines are being developed at the present time – Sahavaara and Tapuli. One of the factors that make Kaunisvaara so interesting is that the properties of the ore make it possible to produce a concentrate with an iron content of all of 69%. Even though Kaunisvaara is situated in an area with a long history of mining and close to existing infrastructure, there was a lot that needed to be built up. For example, the ore must be transported by truck 150 km to a transshipping terminal in Pitkäjärvi, from where it is transported by rail on the Ore Line to the port of Fagernes in Narvik in Norway, where a new terminal is being built.Richard Evans from SRK comments: “Anybody who has worked in or for the mining industry knows that ‘a mine is not an island’. When planning a new mine there is open land between a mine and society and mines have a huge influence on this land. Mines impact greatly on the physical environment and the social and cultural fabric of communities that surround them”, says Evans. He points out that in modern times mines realise that they not only need to care about their investors. They need to care about society. They need to gain a ‘social licence to operate.’ He adds: “These days consulting stakeholders is synonymous with corporate social responsibility. And a socially responsible corporation realises that financial markets and consumers may penalise mines for what they perceive as anti-social behaviour such as by a drop in shareholder value, loss of good will, or poor public image. So mines care because it could affect their bottom line. A socially responsible corporation also realises that there will be greater investment in companies that are socially responsible and vice versa. Now you can’t be a socially responsible corporation and get a social licence to operate if you don’t talk to and care about your stakeholders.” For more information, see www.eurominexpo.comlast_img read more

first_imgExposure to adverse events as children – including physical and emotional neglect, violence, and sexual abuse – is strongly associated with adolescent depression and violence perpetrated by young people in poor urban areas around the world, including India, a study has found. Based in multiple countries across five continents, a study, published recently, found that boys are suffering even more than girls. “This is the first global study to investigate how a cluster of traumatic childhood experiences known as ACEs, or adverse childhood experiences, work together to cause specific health issues in early adolescence with terrible, life-long consequences,” said Robert Blum, from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”While we found young girls often suffer significantly, contrary to common belief, boys reported even greater exposure to violence and neglect, which makes them more likely to be violent in return,” Blum said. The study catalogued the ACEs suffered by 1,284 adolescents aged 10 to 14 in 14 “low-income urban settings” around the world. It found remarkably common experiences with trauma – and very similar impacts – regardless of where the children lived, which included Vietnam, China, Bolivia, Egypt, India, Kenya, UK and the US. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe report is the first to include an assessment of how adversity impacts young children in multiple low – and middle-income countries, where the vast majority of the 1.8 billion 10- to 24-year-olds worldwide live – about a quarter of the global population. The study found that 46 per cent of young adolescents reported experiencing violence, 38 per cent suffered emotional neglect and 29 per cent experienced physical neglect. However, boys stood out in several categories. For both boys and girls, the more adversity they experienced, the more likely they were to engage in violent behaviours, such as bullying, threatening or hitting someone. The effect of the adversity was more pronounced for boys than girls, with boys 11 times more likely to be engaged in violence, and girls four times more likely to be violent. The study also found that, in general, the cumulative effect of their traumas tended to produce higher levels of depressive symptoms among girls than boys, while boys tended to show more external aggression than girls. The study is part of the Global Early Adolescent Study, a major collaboration of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to understand more about the development of gender stereotypes in early adolescence and their impact on adolescent health around the world. It supports a key conclusion from a major new report to be released next week at Women Deliver in Vancouver, Canada based on a global coalition of adolescent health experts: that the world will never achieve gender equality “by focusing on girls and women alone and excluding boys and men.”last_img read more

September 10, 2014 — According to new research performed at the Mayo Clinic, iodine-based contrast material injected intravenously to enhance computed tomography (CT) images can be safely used in most patients. The study appears online in the journal Radiology.Of the 80 million or more CT scans performed each year in the United States, iodine-based contrast material is used in at least half to enhance CT images, according to researcher Robert J. McDonald, M.D., Ph.D., a radiology resident at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.According to McDonald, a small number of case reports from the 1950s and, more recently, retrospective studies lacking appropriate control groups causally linked the use of iodine-based contrast CTs to kidney damage, a condition called contrast-induced nephropathy.“For nearly 60 years, physicians have worried about contrast-induced nephropathy when using iodinated contrast material, particularly for patients with impaired kidney function,” McDonald said. “Emerging evidence now suggests these concerns are likely vastly overestimated.”McDonald and a team of researchers analyzed information on patients who underwent abdominal, pelvic and thoracic CT scans at the Mayo Clinic between 2000 and 2010. A study group of 21,346 patients included 10,673 patients who each underwent a contrast-enhanced CT exam and 10,673 patients who underwent a similar CT without intravenous contrast. The two groups were closely matched by demographic and clinical characteristics, including gender, race and pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, congestive heart failure and acute renal disease.The researchers analyzed the patient data for adverse events following the CT scans, including acute kidney injury, the need for emergency renal dialysis (in patients with no prior history of dialysis) and death within 30 days of contrast exposure.The analysis revealed no significant difference in the rate of acute kidney injury between patients in the contrast group (4.8 percent, or 515 of 10,673) and the non-contrast group (5.1 percent or 544 of 10,673). More importantly, the rates of emergency dialysis and death in the 30-day window following CT examination were not significantly different between patients exposed to contrast and those who were not exposed. These results were also observed among patients with compromised kidney function and high-risk conditions, such as congestive heart failure and diabetes, which are assumed to predispose a patient to kidney injury.“These results challenge long-held assumptions regarding the presumed nephrotoxic risk of intravenous contrast material,” McDonald said. “We hope that our findings will help refine the safety profile of these contrast agents.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Contrast Media | August 05, 2019 Bracco Receives FDA Approval for Varibar Thin Liquid for Oral Suspension Bracco Diagnostics Inc. announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Varibar Thin Liquid (barium… read more Video Player is loading.Arthur Agatston explains the history of CT calcium scoring Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 9:54Loaded: 1.67%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -9:54 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_img Quick workouts for men Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Comments   Share   There have been successes, adding vitamins and making some more drought-resistant. Scientists even bred a cassava plant whose inner tissue is yellow, a color favored by Nigerians who enjoy it with a splash of palm oil, which makes the food spoil quicker when stored.Experiments continue at a kitchen at the institute, where chefs bake using a combination of regular flour and 40 percent of “cassava flour.” Loaves of white bread baked with cassava taste like wheat bread, while the sweet taste of the more exotic “ginger orange raisin muffin” masks the flavor.Every week, the kitchen bakes a batch of cassava bread that is taken to Nigeria’s capital, Abuja, and put on the tables of Aso Rock, the nation’s presidential villa. There, President Goodluck Jonathan made a stir last year when he held up a loaf and promised to eat only cassava bread while in office. He also ate some on national television and handed it out to his ministers, some of whom looked warily at it.“For us as a nation, for us to move forward, we must also tame our exotic tastes,” Jonathan said at the time. “Some of the things from outside are not even as good as the things we have inside.” The vital role family plays in society Associated PressIBADAN, Nigeria (AP) – From this field nestled among the lush rolling hills of Nigeria’s southwest, the small plants rising out the hard red dirt appear fragile, easily crushed by weather or chance.Looks, however, are deceiving.These cassava plants will grow into a dense thicket of hard, bamboo-like shoots within a year, with roots so massive a single planted hectare can provide three tons of food. The plants survive fires, droughts and pestilence, while offering a vital food source for more than 500 million people living across sub-Saharan Africa. Critics on social media and elsewhere flayed Jonathan, likening his cassava bread endorsement as Nigeria faced strikes and unrest to Marie Antoinette’s out-of-touch musings about cake prior to the French Revolution. Jonathan’s push for cassava flour could benefit the country, but it comes after a similar and failed attempt by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to do them same.But cassava can be used beyond the kitchen. Scraps of cassava feed farm animals in Nigeria, while Thailand produces chips and feed from whole cassava roots for animals. In industrial settings, cassava can be used to make starch, sweeteners and medical glucose for diabetics.Those other uses for cassava give scientists at the institute hope that their improved cassava plants will be able to help people both feed themselves and make a profit in Nigeria where most earn less than $2 a day. However, they say that the feeding those living in the country must remain the first priority.“Because it’s eaten in such large quantities, any big change that we can bring about in the nutritional quality is a big” gain, Asiedu said. “You need to diversify your diet _ have meat and fish and all _ but we know these are expensive. So for the average person, any mineral or nutritional element we can put in cassava is big improvement.” 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologistcenter_img Top Stories Cassava also can be ground into flour. In other parts of Africa, people consider the leaves of a cassava plant as a delicacy, eating it in a soup or frying it.Nigeria is the world’s top cassava producer, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, with Brazil and Thailand behind it. The plant thrives in this West African nation, often without needing too much help from farmers, which makes it valuable in a country where most still do agriculture by hand, rather than with machines.While the plant flourishes now, changing weather patterns across Africa make it important to have a stronger cassava available for farmers, said Robert Asiedu, the director for West Africa at the International Institute for Tropical Agriculture.“Although cassava has helped us so many years, we can no longer take it for granted,” Asiedu said. “We need to make it even more hardy as the dry periods are getting longer and the soil fertility is declining.“If we really damage the environment to the extent that cassava can’t grow … you can forget about” other plants, he said.With that in mind, scientists continue to study the plant at the institute, located on a preserve just north of the city of Ibadan. Its laboratories contain varieties of cassava growing in test tubes. Giant freezers there hold seeds dating back more than three decades, though most scientists work with cuttings of the cassava, as seeds can have different genetic attributes.

Recently, it has even become a political prop by the nation’s president. Scientists at the institute and others fighting hunger hope that efforts to make cassava heartier and more nutritious will help feed a continent where famine and scarcity still plague nations.To the uninitiated, the cassava looks more like a misshapen log or tree branch. The plants themselves are not indigenous to Africa, instead brought over from South America in the 1600s by the Portuguese. Those preparing it cut the skin off, then squeeze out the water within the root before frying it to make garri. Most Nigerians eat it by peeling the starchy soft material from a ball and dipping it into different sauces that accompany fish or meat. Sponsored Stories last_img read more

first_imgIf you’re looking for a place to stay – don’t forget to try Skyscanner’s hotel search.The Love Shack, Chateau Franz Backpackers, Franz JosephNew ZealandImagine if you will, a caravan which looks like it should be in a porno movie.Floor to ceiling red velvet walls, navy blue velvet curtains with small silver stars scattered across them.Cheesy doesn’t even come close. It really was just lacking a large mirror on the ceiling.Lucy Drury—Desert cave Hotel, Coober PedySouth AustraliaI also stayed in the most amazing underground hotel in Coober Pedy in Australia. The ceiling glinted with precious stones. The pitch blackness of the underground room can be a little scary, but offer a solid and heavy sleep due to the lack of daylight. The multi-coloured orange and brown sandstone walls were cool to the touch. The hotel was the result of the opal hunters of yesteryear. The underground caves, hotels, shops and churches of the town provide respite from the 40+ degree heat that makes the horizon shimmer and the flies flock to every bead of sweat whilst you wander around one of Australia’s more unusual towns. Alexis Keech—The Carlton Arms Hotel, New YorkUSAThis is an amazing hotel in which each and every room is decorated by a different artist. I stayed here 6 years ago with friends, on arrival to this historic mid-east Manhattan corner block we were handed padlocks to secure our rooms.The eclectic mix of artists work covered every inch of the halls and hinted at the rather alternative clientele that this building has had over the years. One room was painted very dark with hundreds of faces coming out of the walls, this led to a rather uneasy night’s sleep after an evening of over indulgence on 18 slice pizza and local beers. None the less this place comes highly recommended!John Scott—W Motel, SuwonSouth KoreaIn South Korea, a cheap hotel alternative is a love motel for amorous and unmarried couples. The most unusual one I have been in was W Motel in Suwon. Despite the large rooms, all we heard all night (and day) was the surrounding sound sex noises. The corridors were filled with Karma Sutra paintings and vibrator vending machines. On arrival you receive a ‘welcome pack’ containing toothbrushes, razors…condoms, lube and massage oils.The room contained a walk-in sauna, hot tub, mirror above the bed, a flatscreen which had plenty of complimentary porn and a computer if the cable channels weren’t good enough! Of all the love hotels we have stayed in, this was definitely the raunchiest and the funniest!Steph Darcy—A Beach on BarraScotlandNot exactly 5-star but certainly handy for the airport – I spent a night under a tarpaulin on a beach on the Scottish island of Barra. The same gorgeous, white-sanded, windswept beach which doubles as the runway for the Islands airport.As a bit of an airport/plane spotter (who can’t resist a viewing gallery) it was the best room I could have found. Only thing that would have improved it would have been a few air hostesses coming round with a trolley of complimentary drinks every now and then.
