MP: 12-year-old rape survivor delivers baby 22.11.2017 The Tribune
Khargone (MP), November 22 A 12-year-old rape survivor, whose abortion plea was turned down by the Madhya Pradesh High Court, has delivered a baby through the C-section surgery at the district hospital here. Dr Indira Gupta, gynaecologist at the Khargone district hospital, said, “The girl delivered an infant boy weighing around 2.6 kg through C-section last night. Both the girl and the infant are stable and in good health.” The police were informed about the development and a DNA test would be conducted on the baby, as is normally done in such cases (for the purpose of probe), she said. Advocate Rajendra Singh Parmar, who represents the girl, said her parents are ready to take care of the baby. “Parents of the rape survivor are ready to take care of the infant. But we are looking for institutions or individuals who can bring up the child up to the age of one year,” Parmar said. The girl was allegedly raped by a 21-year-old engineering student, her distant cousin, and the crime came to light when she was ...

Brazil may pass law criminalising abortion, including for rape victims 22.11.2017
Rio de Janeiro: More pregnant women could die in Brazil if it passes a law banning all abortions on Tuesday, including in cases of rape or when the mother's life is in danger, critics said. Thousands of women took to Brazil's streets early November to protest against the bill, which is supported by increasingly influential evangelical Christian groups. "It's intentional fraud from fundamentalist congressmen who think that their religious dogmas have greater weight than the democratic state," said congresswoman Erika Kokay, who opposes the constitutional reform bill. "It's absurd and is a huge setback against legislation on women's rights in force since the 1940s," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation. Abortion is illegal in Brazil, home to the world's largest Catholic community, except when pregnancy is due to rape, endangers the mother's life or if the fetus has anencephaly, in which a baby is missing parts of the brain and skull. More than 1 million ...

Sensex rally continues, rises 83 points on PSU, auto, infra stocks 22.11.2017
Mumbai: Bringing up the fifth day of gains, benchmark Sensex rose over 83 points on Wednesday to finish at an over two-week high of 33,561.55, fuelled by infrastructure, PSU and auto stocks. However, the gains were capped by battered metal and healthcare counters. Sentiment was bolstered by positive global cues, with Hong Kong stocks breaking the 30,000-barrier for the first time in 10 years as Asian markets extended a global rally following another record close on the Wall Street on strong world growth and rising corporate earnings. The Sensex opened higher at 33,569.07 and continued its upward march to hit a high of 33,654.53 on unabated buying by participants, particularly domestic investors. However, profit-booking emerged at higher levels and dragged the index to a low of 33,465.23, before it bounced back to settle at 33,561.55, up 83.20 points, or 0.25 per cent. This is the benchmark's highest closing since November 6, when it settled at 33,731.19. The gauge had gained 717.91 points ...

Air pollution may lower your sperm quality 22.11.2017 life and style
Hong Kong: Men who regularly get exposed to air pollution may be at an increased risk of having poorer quality sperm, resulting in a spell of infertility for a 'significant number of couples', researchers warned. Increased exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5) -- fine inhalable particles that have diameters of 2.5 micrometres or less -- have been previously found to reduce growth of working memory in kids, stroke, respiratory problems, kidney, bladder and colorectal cancer besides causing lung cancer. Representational picture In the new study, researchers from the Chinese University of Hong Kong found a strong association between PM2.5 exposure and abnormal sperm shape. For every five micrograms per cubic meter air or µg/m3 increase in PM2.5 across two-year average was associated with a significant drop in normal sperm shape/size of 1.29 percent. And it was associated with a 26 percent heightened risk of being in the bottom 10 percent of normal sperm size and shape. However, it was also associated ...

India urges UN to push use of millets to combat hunger, climate change 22.11.2017 Latest News
India has asked the United Nations to declare 2018 as the 'International Year of Millets' and promote it as nutrition-rich smart food across the world. A letter in this regard has been written to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres by Union Agriculture Minister Radha Mohan Singh. In the letter, Singh said there is a need to promote millets as the "awareness is low" among consumers, policy makers, industry and R&D sector. Sorghum, Bajra and Ragi are some popular millets in India. "Promotion of production and consumption of millets through conscious efforts at global level is likely to contribute substantially in the fight against the targeted hunger and mitigate the effects of climate change in the long run," he said. The yield of millets can be increased three times and they have multiple untapped uses such as food, feed, biofuels and brewing. Therefore, millets are smart food and good for consumers, farmers and the planet, he added "Considering the importance of
