 The widow of late Chinese Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo has resurfaced in an online video, weeks after her friends raised concerns about her fate at the hands of the authorities. Liu Xia was last seen in government-released images of her dissident husband's sea burial on July 15, and China has been under international pressure to free her and let her travel abroad. Liu Xia, 56, has been under de facto house arrest since her husband won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2010, despite having never been charged with a crime. "I am recovering in a province outside of Beijing. I ask you to give me time to mourn," said Liu in the minute-long video posted yesterday on YouTube, a website blocked in Communist-ruled China.     Dressed in a black t-shirt and black trousers, Liu Xia was sitting on a sofa next to a coffee table while holding a lit cigarette.

Medical marijuana in India: still a long way to go 18.8.2017 deccanherald.com
Maneka Gandhi, the Union Minister of Women and Child Development, has suggested legalising marijuana in India for medical purposes. Speaking at a recent group of ministers (GOM) meeting, she said the US, Australia and Canada had legalised marijuana, both recreationally and medically, and made some breakthroughs in the healthcare sector. She also suggested that regulation of the drug will not only help in bringing down the number of illegal users but also help in medical research as shown in other countries. But for medical marijuana to even have a chance, doctors need to be on the same page and not view marijuana as just a psychoactive substance, as it has been labelled under Schedule I of drugs alongside life-threatening drugs such as heroin, cocaine and tobacco.

A matter of survival 18.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The alarming rise of breast cancer cases in India is a cause for concern, as the early detection of the disease is proving to be problematic. A recent survey has revealed a sudden increase in breast cancer cases in the urban areas from 25% to 32% of all cancers that women are prone to. This accounts for almost one fourth of all cancers affecting women. More and more young women in their 30s and 40s are being diagnosed with breast cancer, which is a disturbing trend. Research also reveals a shocking fact that almost 50% of women don't get diagnosed in the early stages, and the disease is often detected when it has advanced. Unfortunately, this only goes to show that almost 50% of women diagnosed with cancer don't survive. Although breast cancer is curable, lack of awareness about the disease and delayed screening are the main reasons for breast cancer-related deaths. Watch for symptoms There is no way to prevent breast cancer although a healthy lifestyle and avoiding associated risk factors like smoking, ...
