UK slams US on probe leaks; queen visits child victims 25.5.2017
Manchester: British police arrested two more people and searched a new site in Manchester suspected of links to the concert bombing that left 22 people dead, as British authorities complained bitterly Thursday about investigation leaks blamed on US officials. British Prime Minister Theresa May said she plans to raise the issue with President Donald Trump at the NATO summit in Brussels. She said she plans to "make clear to President Trump that intelligence that is shared between our law enforcement agencies must remain secure." British officials are particularly angry that photos detailing evidence about the bomb used in the Manchester attack were published in The New York Times, although it is not clear that the newspaper obtained the photos from US officials. May also said Thursday that progress is being made in the Manchester bombing investigation noted the national threat level remains critical - meaning another attack may be imminent.

WannaCry doesn't affect Android and iOS 25.5.2017
The WannaCry ransomware has been claimed to be one of the most widely hit malware to hit computers on a global scale. Computer systems across the banking system as well police, hospitals and more were affected, primarily due to running older Windows operating systems. Despite Microsoft rolling out a security patch to fix the issue on its systems and stopping its spread, people are still in the dark regarding the current status of the ransomware. If you have been visiting the Google PlayStore lately, you must have noticed a number of apps carrying the WannaCry tag in their name.  All these apps are basically there to prank people with the deadly ransomware’s name or provide tips and tricks.

The notorious ransomware threatened old systems running on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003 and Windows 8. ...

Indian fertility expert offers hope to elderly women despite criticism 25.5.2017
Hisar: To see Manjeet Kaur around her little daughter is to see joy at its purest. The 15-month-old toddles about the sprawling courtyard of her parents' farm, her oily curls tied up in a top knot, her rubber-soled shoes squeaking. Kaur's eyes don't miss a thing, and they often mist up with tears. Gurjeet is the child Kaur yearned for desperately, after 40 years of being that thing which a rural Indian woman dreads more than almost anything else - barren. She gave birth at 58 years old, with help from a controversial IVF clinic in this corner of north India that specializes in fertility treatments for women over 50. Such treatments have become more common across the world, and they strike a cultural chord in India, where a woman is often defined by her ability to be a wife and mother. While there are no reliable statistics for how many Indian women undergo fertility treatments each year at what age, tens of thousands of IVF clinics have sprouted up in the country over the last decade. Fertility ...

Video: Filipino man branded an 'evil spirit' due to rare skin condition 25.5.2017
Skin conditions and birth defects can result in appearance and lifestyle changes which are a struggle for any human being, but the lack of awareness and resulting superstition in several parts of the world not only gives rise to a social stigma that affects the patient, but it also comes in the way of ensuring proper treatment and better healthcare. After a child with ichthyosis was labled an alien in India and another one with tumours on his face was shunned by society which called him a ghost, one more heartbreaking story of superstition and social exclusion of patient suffering from a rare condition has emerged. 26-year-old Antonio Reloj’s life has been an ordeal, as his skin appears burned due to ichthyosis and people call him a ghost. Ironically the condition haunts Antonio as he is forced to hide from people as the condition gets worse and has spread across his face. Antonio was only 12 when his mother decided to abandon him due to his condition, and he was raised by his grandmother. He has been ...
