A 240-bedded bone and joint hospital is coming up here for the benefit of patients who have to rush to Srinagar or outside the state for specialised treatment, Jammu and Kashmir Health minister Bali Bhagat said today. Bhagat laid the foundation of the hospital which will be completed at a cost of Rs 40.45 crore on the land adjacent to the government chest diseases hospital here, an official spokesman said. He said the project comprises a four-storey building which is likely to be completed within a period of two years by the Public Works Department (Roads and Buildings). Jammu and Kashmir has only one bone and joint hospital at Srinagar which was established in 1972. The construction of the hospital was a long pending demand of the people of Jammu as a majority of the patients from the division and critical accidental cases used to move to Srinagar and adjoining states for treatment, the minister said. He said the government has decided to set up an exclusive bone and joint hospital .

How cancer-causing virus clings to our DNA decoded 22.4.2018 General News
Scientists have unveiled how a cancer-causing virus anchors itself to our DNA, paving the way for doctors to treat incurable diseases by flushing out viruses that permanently embed themselves in human cells. The researchers used a microscope built by them to unveil the structure of the tether used by a virus called Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV). Until now, such tethers have largely eluded scientists because they are so diabolically small, defying even the most high-tech approaches to determining their form. "We're seeing things on the order of 8,000 times smaller than a human hair," said M Mitchell Smith, from University of Virginia (UVA) in the US, who built the microscope piece-by-piece. "The reason we can't get rid of these viruses is because we can't figure out a way to get their DNA out of the nucleus, out of the cell," said Dean H Kedes, UVA researcher. "They depend on this 'tether' to remain anchored to the DNA within our cells, and to remain attached even as ..

Being watched may boost your performance: study 22.4.2018 General News
People perform better when they are being watched, say scientists, contradicting the belief that we often mess up performances when we have an audience. When people know they are being observed, parts of the brain associated with social awareness and reward invigorate a part of the brain that controls motor skills, improving their performance at skilled tasks. The findings, published in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, could help people become more effective in the workplace and in school. "You might think having people watch you isn't going to help, but it might actually make you perform better. An audience can serve as an extra bit of incentive," said Vikram Chib, an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University in the US. Chib, who has studied what happens in the brain when people choke under pressure, originally launched this project to investigate how performance suffers under social observation. However, it quickly became clear that in certain ...
