New robot can help treat rare birth defect 18.1.2018 General News
Scientists have created a robot which can be implanted into a baby's body to treat a rare birth defect that affects the food pipe. The prototype robotic implant, developed by the researchers at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children's Hospital in the US, encourages tissue growth in babies. The robot is a small device which is attached to the oesophagus by two rings. An incorporated motor then stimulates the cells by gently pulling the tissue. Using two types of sensors - one to measure the tension in the tissue and another to measure tissue displacement - the robot monitors and applies tissue traction depending on the tissue properties. The robot's function is inspired by the Foker technique of correcting the oesophageal atresia which involves manually pulling the tissue slowly using sutures over a period of time. "Doctors have been performing the Foker procedure as they realised that tissue lengthening can be achieved by pulling on the tissue," said Dana Damian, from

Bangladesh blacklists Chinese firm over alleged bribe 18.1.2018 General News
Bangladesh has blacklisted a top Chinese construction firm for allegedly trying to bribe a senior government official and stopped its work in the country. The state-backed China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) was in negotiations with the Bangladesh government to expand a major highway from the capital Dhaka to the northeastern city of Sylhet, a top government official told AFP. The country's road transport minister Obaidul Quader said Wednesday that the blacklisted company's work in Bangladesh has been stopped, but declined to identify the firm or its projects. Finance minister A.M.A. Muhith had confirmed the ban late Tuesday when he was asked by a reporter about CHEC allegedly trying to bribe an official. Muhith told reporters that the firm was blacklisted and could no longer work in Bangladesh after it offered the top bureaucrat in the road transport ministry around 5 million taka ($60,000) as a bribe. CHEC could not be reached for comment. The company has ...

UN Palestinian agency sees 'most severe' crisis ever after US 17.1.2018 General News
The UN agency for Palestinian refugees faces its worst funding crisis ever after the United States froze tens of millions of dollars in contributions, its spokesman said today. "The US has announced it will contribute $60 million to the programme budget. There is for the moment no other indication of possible funding," UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness told AFP. "This dramatically reduced contribution results in the most severe funding crisis in the history of the agency." The United States held back $65 million that had been destined for UNRWA on Tuesday, two weeks after President Donald Trump threatened future payments. The State Department said $60 million of what had been a planned $125 million package would go through to keep the agency running, but the rest will be withheld for now. UNRWA said the $60 million would keep schools and hospitals open for the time being, but noted that it was dramatically less than the $350 million Washington paid during 2017. State ...

Cong MP to raise issue of people to be displaced by dam 16.1.2018 General News
Congress MP from Uttarakhand Mahendra Singh Mahra said today the party will strongly raise the issue of people who would be displaced by the proposed Pancheshwar dam in Rajya Sabha during the winter session. "The public hearing of the proposed project was completed in a hurry giving no chance to the affected people to express their point of view on rehabilitation," he said at a press conference here. The Rajya Sabha MP alleged that the Modi government seemed in a hurry to construct the project without taking into account the plight of those to be displaced. The public hearing was carried out in a highly unmethodical manner in Pithoragarh, Almora and Champawat districts where the affected population resides, he said. Emphasising that the Pancheshwar dam will change the geography and climatic conditions of three districts forever, he said any action plan on the project must take into account the point of view of people to be affected by it. Meanwhile, Congress workers, led

The Gujarat High Court today issued notices to the Centre and the Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIM-A) on a PIL seeking direction to the premier business school to provide reservation in admission for its doctoral programme. A division bench of Chief Justice R Subhash Reddy and Justice V M Pancholi issued the notices on the PIL filed by the Global IIM Alumni Network, an unregistered body which has around 200 members. In its petition, the network has sought direction to the IIM-A to provide reservation to SC/ST/OBC aspirants and persons with disabilities in its Fellow Programme in Management (FPM). The notices are returnable by February 7. In its petition, the alumni body said that while most of the IIMs are providing "mandatory reservations" for FPM, IIM-A has not done so despite the Union HRD Ministry and the petitioner writing to it. Reservation for the under-represented communities has been sought as per the provisions of the Central Education Act and the
