Girl Power was Spice Girls' reaction to sexism in the industry 20.1.2018 General News
Singer Mel C has said the sexism that persisted in the music industry in the 1990s was one of the reason that gave birth to her band Spice Girl's slogan "girl power". The 44-year-old singer was part of the famous band alongside Mel B, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner (Nee Halliwell). She said the slogan was result of the discrimination they experienced, reported Femalefirst. "'Girl power' was something that we never intended. When we started we were a pop group and we just wanted to sing and be famous and travel the world and we never really thought about that side of things at all," Mel C said.

The singer said true spirit of Girl Power, the sexism the band faced encouraged them to ...

City's diet skewed, needs change to stave off diseases 19.1.2018 Deccan Herald - City
After a recent national survey exposed the countrys unbalanced dieting pattern, city-based experts agreed that Bengaluru has pretty much gone the national way in the last decade. They blame lack of access to quality food, gender discrimination and widespread ignorance for dangerously skewing the diet. "Its the prime reason behind the increase in lifestyle diseases like diabetes, hypertension and heart ailments," said Shalini Arvind, chief dietician, Fortis Hospital. She said night shifts and activity-filled days have pushed people into adopting the quick-bite culture, making them almost hopelessly dependent on two-minute noodles and hurriedly put-together sandwiches. "They come to us eating such food," Shalini said. Even the ragi and rice-based food end up storing energy in the body for later use and create fat. "But the problem for city residents is that their diet has become westernised," regretted Sheela Krishnaswamy, nutritionist and wellness consultant. "Obviously, you can see youngsters crunching ...

Secrets of longevity protein revealed 18.1.2018 General News
Scientists have unveiled the 3D structure of a protein linked to longer lives, paving the way for new therapies to treat a wide range of medical conditions, including diabetes, obesity and certain cancers. Named after the Greek goddess who spun the thread of life, Klotho proteins play an important role in the regulation of longevity and metabolism.
