Mumbai: 87 inmates of Byculla jail sent to JJ hospital for nausea, diarrhoea 21.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
Eighty-five inmates of Byculla Women's Prison, one male prisoner and a four-month-old boy were admitted to Sir JJ Hospital on Friday morning for vomiting, nausea and diarrhoea. They had been ill since Thursday night. Though the condition of all the patients is said to be stable, they have been shifted to the disaster management ward. Two inmates — one is 24-weeks pregnant and the other, 26 weeks — have been shifted to the gynaecology ward. The baby boy, whose mother is also in hospital, is in the paediatric ward. According to the officers at Byculla jail, some inmates experienced stomachache on Thursday night and began vomiting, and were administered doxycycline. Soon, other inmates began showing the same symptoms. "They did not fall ill due to the antibiotic," Dr Wiquar Shaikh, medicine unit head at Sir JJ Hospital, said. "It looks like an outbreak of a monsoon-related ailment. We have taken their blood, urine, and stool samples and sent it for testing," he added. "It can be due to contaminated water or ...

Tourist boat capsizes in storm, killing 17 in Missouri 20.7.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Divers on Friday pulled the last four bodies from the wreckage of a "duck boat" that sank in a storm in a Missouri lake, killing 17 people in one of the deadliest U.S. tourist incidents in years. The World War Two-style amphibious vehicle was filled with 31 passengers including children when a microburst storm hit Table Rock Lake outside the tourist city of Branson, Missouri, on Thursday. A video of the incident showed it battered by waves. Wendy Doucey, an office manager at the Stone County sheriff's office, said divers had recovered the four bodies from the sunken duck boat. The vehicle was 80 feet (24 m) under water. "It's important that we find out for sure what events did occur," Missouri Governor Michael Parson said at a Friday morning news conference. "Today it's just still early." The incident began around 7 p.m. (0000 GMT) on Thursday after thunderstorms rolled through the area, when two duck boats were out on the lake, officials said. Both headed back to shore but only one made it. "From what I ...

Deep reefs won't be 'twilight zone' refuge for fish, corals: Study 20.7.2018 DNA: Money
Deep coral reefs in a "twilight zone" in the oceans differ sharply from those near the surface, dimming hopes that they can be a refuge for marine life fleeing threats such as climate change and pollution, scientists said on Thursday. Worldwide, coral reefs in shallow waters are among ecosystems most threatened by climate change. The Great Barrier Reef off Australia suffered severe bleaching, a whitening driven by warm waters that can kill corals, in 2016 and 2017. A U.S.-led team of divers who studied little-known reefs in the West Atlantic and Pacific Oceans between 30 and 150 metres (100-500 ft) deep where sunlight fades, found most species of corals and fish were unlike those closer to the surface. "We were surprised to find little overlap," lead author Luiz Rocha of the California Academy of Sciences told Reuters of the findings published in the journal science. Less than five percent of fish and corals were found in both shallow and deep waters against the scientists' previous estimate of 60-75 ...
