Parents’ alcohol use may up teenage dating violence 22.10.2017 The Tribune
New York, October 22 Teenagers who have parents suffering from alcohol use disorders may be at increased risk for exhibiting abusive dating behaviour, a study warns. Researchers from University of Buffalo in the US evaluated 144 teenagers who had fathers with an alcohol use disorder and who had been initially recruited for study at 12 months of age. By analysing data that was collected regularly over the course of their lifespan, researchers identified factors that led to some of the teenagers to be involved in abusive dating relationships. “It appears that family dynamics occurring in the preschool years and in middle childhood are critical in the development of aggression and dating violence in the teenage years,” said Jennifer A Livingston, at University of Buffalo. Researchers noted that mothers living with partners who have alcohol use disorder tended to be more depressed and, as a result, were less warm and sensitive in their interactions with their children, beginning in infancy. “This is ...

'Invisible people' of the world: Over 1.1 billion live without ID proof 22.10.2017
Washington: More than 1.1 billion people worldwide officially don"t exist - going about their daily lives without proof of identity. The issue leaves a significant fraction of the global population deprived of health and education services. Among these "invisible people" - many of whom live primarily in Africa and Asia - more than one third are children susceptible to violence whose births have not been registered, the World Bank"s "Identification for Development" (ID4D) program recently warned. The problem is particularly acute in geographical areas whose residents face poverty, discrimination, epidemics or armed conflicts. Vyjayanti Desai, who manages the ID4D program, said the issue arises from a number of factors, but cited the distance between people and government services in developing areas as major. For populations near the Peruvian Amazon, for example, travelling to an administrative service can take some five days of transit by boat, according to Carolina ...

Indian tourism industry holds potential to grow by 2.5 per cent: study 22.10.2017
New Delhi: Indian travel and tourism industry has a potential to grow by 2.5 per cent on the back of higher budgetary allocation and low cost healthcare facility, says a report. The industry has tremendous potential to rise by 2.5 per cent provided the budgetary allocation was enhanced from the current 0.09 per cent of the total allocation to at least 0.15 per cent in 2018-19, the joint study conducted by Assocham and Yes Bank said. The study also proposed developmental interventions, including tourism infrastructure development and the emergence of tourism themes to upscale the industry. The total contribution of travel and tourism to Indian GDP was USD 208.9 billion, 9.6 per cent of GDP in 2016, and is forecast to rise by 6.7 per cent in 2017 and 10.0 per cent of GDP in 2027, according to the World Trade and Tourism Council. "The formation of National Tourism Authority (NTA) also needs to be taken up on priority and position it as an important authority," an Assocham spokesperson said. He ...

Aspirin could reduce risk of liver cancer, new study reveals 22.10.2017
Washington: Taking aspirin daily can reduce the risk of liver cancer , a new study suggested. The researchers found that everyday aspirin therapy could significantly associate with a reduced risk in hepatitis B related liver cancer. Hepatitis B is a viral infection that attacks the liver. HBV can be contracted through contact with an infected person's blood or other bodily fluid, and the infection can either be acute or chronic. It has been estimated that around estimated 240 million people worldwide have chronic HBV. The findings also show Africa and Asia as the highest prevalence of the virus. Previous studies also show that daily aspirin therapy -- which is often prescribed to prevent cardiovascular disease -- may also prevent the development of cancer. However, on another note clinical evidence is being lacked for the effectiveness of aspirin therapy in preventing HBV-related liver cancer. Researcher Teng-Yu Lee from the Taichung Veterans General Hospital conducted a nationwide cohort study to ...
