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 ...

The woman battling S Korea's 'birth strike' 19.1.2018 General News
The woman appointed to try to reverse the world's lowest birth rates knows better than most why billion-dollar campaigns to encourage South Korea's female populace to procreate have failed - she is among the millions who have chosen to remain childless in the face of traditionalist social expectations. A history professor at a Seoul university before joining the government, family minister Chung Hyun-Back says she remained single to pursue her professional ambitions. Entrenched gender roles at home and a workaholic culture are pushing the next generation of South Korean women to follow suit, warned the 64-year-old. "It was extremely difficult -- if not impossible -- to juggle an academic career while getting married and raising children," she explained, pointing out that many female professors in their 50s and 60s are single. Rapid economic growth over several decades has seen South Korea's GDP boom, but birth rates have gone in the opposite direction. The country's ...

Pak SC calls fake degrees scandal a "national shame" 19.1.2018 General News
Pakistan's Supreme Court today termed as "national shame" the fake degrees scandal involving a Pakistani company and ordered a probe by the country's top investigating agency in the so-called "diploma mill" that sold thousands of sham qualifications to British nationals. Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar ordered the head of Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to submit a detailed report in the court within 10 days about the scandal involving Axact company. "It is an issue of national shame for us if the allegations are correct," the judge observed. According to a report on Tuesday by the BBC, Axact sold more than 3,000 qualifications in Britain between 2013 and 2014, including PhDs and doctorates, the BBC reported. The company reportedly invented hundreds of universities online and used fake news stories in an attempt to dupe employers who might check the references on applicants' CVs, the report said. Axact, which claims to be the "world's largest IT company" and has ...

Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh protest repatriation move 19.1.2018 General News
Hundreds of Rohingya refugees staged protests in Bangladesh against plans to send them back to Myanmar, where a military crackdown last year sparked a mass exodus. The refugees chanted slogans and held banners demanding citizenship and guarantees of security before they return to their home state of Rakhine in Myanmar. The protest came ahead of a visit by UN special rapporteur Yanghee Lee to the camps in southeastern Bangladesh where around a million of the Muslim minority are now living. Bangladesh has reached an agreement with Myanmar to send back the around 750,000 refugees who have arrived since October 2016 over the next two years, a process set to begin as early as next week. But many Rohingya living in the crowded, unsanitary camps have said they do not want to return to Rakhine after fleeing atrocities including murder, rape and arson attacks on their homes. Rights groups and the UN say any repatriations must be voluntary. They have also expressed concerns about .
