PDP MLA demands panel to look into Jhelum works 18.1.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Jammu, January 17 The PDP-BJP coalition government had to cut a sorry figure today in the Legislative Assembly when PDP lawmaker Muhammad Ashraf Mir demanded constitution of a House committee to look into the dredging of the Jhelum. Mir, who is the PDP member from the Sonwar Assembly constituency of Srinagar and had defeated former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah during the 2014 elections, wanted the government to come clear on the steps taken for desilting and dredging of the Jhelum. Minister for Irrigation and Flood Control Sham Lal Choudhary replied that the dredging work was started in Sopore and Baramulla in 2012.

Childhood abuse may affect social relationships as adults 17.1.2018 The Tribune
WASHINGTON: Children who experience abuse and neglect early in life are more likely to have problems in social relationships and academics as adults, a study has found. Maltreatment experienced before age five can have negative effects that continue to be seen nearly three decades later, researchers said. “It is not a controversial statement to say abuse and neglect can have harmful consequences,” said Lee Raby, assistant professor at University of Utah in the US. “This study adds to that by showing that these effects are long term and don’t weaken with time. They persist from childhood across adolescence and into adulthood,” Raby said. The researchers used data from a study which followed participants since their births in the mid-1970s. The study looked at data on 267 individuals who had reached ages between 32 and 34. Information about the participants’ exposure to physical abuse, sexual abuse and neglect was gathered from multiple sources during two age periods: 0-5 years and 6-17.5 years. Throughout ...
