Critically endangered Javan Rhino dies in Indonesia 26.4.2018 General News
A Javan rhino has died in Indonesia, the environment ministry said today, bringing the critically endangered mammals closer to extinction with just 60 believed to be still living in the wild. The body of the male rhino was found inside West Java's Ujung Kulon national park, the creature's last remaining habitat. Its death was believed to be from old age rather than poaching. The animal has been driven to the brink of extinction as their horns are highly valued in traditional Chinese and Korean medicine, although most countries in the region have banned the trade. "We found it on (Monday) and are now performing an autopsy," said environment ministry spokesman Djati Witjaksono Hadi. The 40-year-old rhino didn't had any offspring, he added. Javan and Sumatran rhinos are classified as "critically endangered" by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Indian doctors in UK hailed for their contribution to NHS 26.4.2018 General News
Indian doctors in the UK who have worked for decades in Britain's National Health Service were today hailed for their contribution and building up the country's healthcare system. Britain's Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) launched a new exhibition to pay tribute to the Indian doctors who were the very "lifeblood" of the National Health Service (NHS) and were amongst its "architects". 'Migrants Who Made the NHS' is a celebration of thousands of doctors who came from South Asia to keep the UK's state-funded NHS afloat by working as general practitioners in some of the most deprived and far-flung areas of the country between the 1940s and 1980s. "General practice in the UK would not be what it is today without the hard work, innovation, and courage of our predecessors, and their dedication to delivering high-quality patient care. Indeed, without them, our profession and the NHS might not even exist at all," said Professor Mayur Lakhani, President of the RCGP. "Not only were

'Enzyme structure paves way for new anti-ageing, cancer drugs' 26.4.2018 General News
Scientists have created the first detailed picture of the molecular structure of the human telomerase enzyme, an advance that may lead to the development of new drugs for ageing and cancer. In the journal Nature, the researchers describe the three-dimensional (3D) molecular structure of human telomerase. "It has been a long time coming. It took a lot of persistence," said Kathleen Collins, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley in the US. One bottleneck has been obtaining pure samples of this complex molecule, which is composed of an RNA backbone decorated by six types of protein that move around as they add DNA to the ends of chromosomes, researchers said. Labs around the world have debated whether the enzyme operates singly or as conjoined twins, and how and how many proteins decorate the RNA backbone, they said. Without consensus on these questions, it has proven difficult to design a drug to target the molecular machine and either destroy telomerase activity - which

Raping girls no sin for 'Brahmgyani' like him, believed Asaram 26.4.2018 General News
Asaram believed that sexual exploitation of girls is not a sin for 'Brahmgyani' or a highly enlightened person, a prosecution witness had deposed to the court during the trial that ended yesterday in a life-long jail term to the self-styled godman.

Sachar , who was close to Asaram and had access to his 'kutia' or abode, deposed that he had seen Asaram molesting girls in his ashrams in 2003 in Pushkar (Rajasthan), Bhiwani (Haryana) and Ahmedabad (Gujarat). For this purpose, he used to give signals to three girls, who used to stay with him, by throwing torch light. On getting the 'signal', the girls used to take the targeted girls to his room in Kutia.
