The quest to find a cure for Alzheimer's disease 21.9.2019
Since the time Alois Alzheimer, a German neuropathologist noticed hitherto undescribed abnormal deposits of protein lumps in the brain (1906) sample of 50 year old Auguste D, a patient who suffered memory problems, language dysfunction, and peculiar ideas, the quest for a cure for Alzheimer"s disease has become the Holy Grail for neuroscience researchers. Patients with Alzheimer"s disease insidiously develop memory impairment, linguistic failure, personality changes, visuo-spatial dysfunction producing wandering, and apraxia resulting in the inability to perform learned tasks. The course is inexorably progressive and ultimately leaves the patient"s persona bereft of a definitive identity. Over the last 113 years of research, much has been learnt about Alzheimer"s disease albeit with the conviction that much more needs to be discovered. This neurodegenerative disease is characterized by abnormal deposition of abnormally pleated lumps of a protein called beta-amyloid enmeshed in ...

Disqualification as a deterrent to killer hoardings 21.9.2019
The emotional plea of Subhasri"s father that his daughter"s death should be the last one caused by a hoarding on the road should ring in our ears till the menace ends. The difference between  knee-jerk outrage and a permanent solution, between a catalyst of change and a mere statistic, lies in stinging legal deterrence. Political functionaries wear their loyalty on their dangerous hoardings. Bigger the designation, larger the hoarding. When one bloke"s family wedding or birthday is another man"s funeral, its time to call out the nonsense. That a few parties have embarked on self regulation is some consolation. But it"s no match for the heady cocktail of money and muscle power, fuelled by sycophancy and ulterior motives for special favours. Go to the root of the issue. These are people who are already representatives of citizens or those currying favour for tickets to represent us. How dare their activities endanger our life? Why can"t we amend the Representation ...

Kamal Haasan hits out at Government for techie's death 21.9.2019
CHENNAI: Actor-politician Kamal Haasan on Friday slammed the AIADMK Government for the "murders caused by administrative inefficiency and neglect" witnessed in the road deaths of techie Subhasri, young Dheena Senthil and driver Sethurajan in recent days.  "Murders due to official neglect continue to happen in Tamil Nadu and these must stop forthwith. We are not here just to be expressing condolences", he said on his twitter handle, while exhorting his fans and the members of his 'Makkal Neethi Maiyam' party to turn to social media to voice protest. "They (rulers) only practice politics of terror, crushing us if we ask questions and threaten to cut off our tongues. I do not have an iota of fear or respect for these indifferent officers and half-cocked politicians. Hold my hand if you have such fear and the MNM will take up your fight to deliver justice", Kamal declared in a video he posted on twitter. "There can be nothing more idiotic than remaining ...

Normal sport in abnormal times 21.9.2019
The Sri Lankan cricket team to tour Pakistan from next week may be a second-string side, but their visit will be a breakthrough for Pakistani cricket that has been starved of quality cricket at home. The few international teams that toured Pakistan in the past 10 years, after the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore, have either been brave or foolhardy. The fear of terrorists attacking sportsmen despite the fact that all it brings is bad publicity for the rebels has meant players have stayed away from Pakistan over safety fears. The principle that sport is above politics and sportsmen should be allowed to play has also been breached elsewhere, like the attack on a football stadium during the French terror strikes. Pakistani cricket suffered despite being an innocent party, while Pakistan has often charged the powerful BCCI with toeing the Indian government line to harm Pakistan"s cricketing interests. Shahid Afridi has been an outspoken critic of India"s cash-rich IPL for not ...

Akshay Kumar's quick rides 21.9.2019

The traffic in Mumbai has ensured that even Bollywood actors resort to public transport for commuting. Many of them have been spotted at the Versova jetty in Mumbai, taking the ferry to reach Madh Island, where a lot of Bollywood films are shot.

Recently, Akshay Kumar was seen travelling to his Madh Island shoot of Laxmmi Bomb in a metro. The actor took the train to reach back to Versova after shooting for Good News with director Raj Mehta. “It showed over two hours on the GPS. And Raj suggested that we should try the metro. We took two security guards with us and came over. I am actually covering the distance in just 20 minutes,” Akshay was seen grinning in a video that he shot while taking the metro.

When Akshay panned his camera to the other side, actually, none of the passengers were even looking at him. Earlier, Akshay used to take his motorbike to travel to work to beat the Mumbai traffic.

J&K residents say they are being charged by telecos despite no service 20.9.2019
Srinagar: Kashmir has been facing communications blackout for the past 47 days with virtually no mobile phone and internet services, but many residents in the Valley say they have been sent bills by telecom companies for services that were not provided. The telecom companies have billed the subscribers for the period of communication blockade which began on August 5 when the Centre abrogated provisions of Article 370 and split Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories. "Mobile phone and internet services are not functional in Kashmir since August 5 but still I have been billed Rs 779 by Airtel. I fail to understand what are we being charged for," Obaid Nabi, a resident of Safakadal, said. Mohammad Umar, who has a BSNL mobile connection, said his average monthly mobile bill used to be around Rs 380 but he was surprised to find an inflated bill for the shutdown period. "I have been billed Rs 470 for the last month. The surprising aspect is that the phone services are not working for ...
