The Supreme Court will on Monday hear the appeal filed by NDTV against the ban imposed on its NDTV India channel for airing security related information linked to the terrorist attack on the Pathankot air force base earlier this year. The apex court had earlier on November 6 deferred the hearing in the case to December 5, citing reason of no urgency for its hearing. NDTV India was asked to go off-air on November 9 after the government accused it of broadcasting sensitive information related to the terror attack on Pathankot air force base in January. However, NDTV refuted the allegations stating that other channels had also reported the same.

Does Maharashtra have a proper safety plan in place like Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Uttarakhand to hold Kumbh Mela, which see about 1 crore devotees?

Can sleep deprivation result in a heart attack? 3.12.2016 DNA: Opinion
Too little sleep may take a toll on your heart, say scientists who found that working in high-stress jobs that often require 24-hour shifts and lead to short-term sleep deprivation may increase blood pressure and heart rate. People who work in fire and emergency medical services, medical residencies and other high-stress jobs are often called upon to work 24-hour shifts with little opportunity for sleep. While it is known that extreme fatigue can affect many physical, cognitive and emotional processes, this is the first study to examine how working a 24-hour shift specifically affects cardiac function. "For the first time, we have shown that short-term sleep deprivation in the context of 24-hour shifts can lead to a significant increase in cardiac contractility, blood pressure and heart rate," said Daniel Kuetting from the University of Bonn in Germany. For the study, researchers recruited 20 healthy radiologists, including 19 men and one woman, with a mean age of 31.6 years. Each of the study ...
