SAI to hire nutritionists chefs for personalised diet to athletes

0 Comments

first_imgNew Delhi: In a first, the Sports Authority of India is set to hire top-of-the-line professionals — nutritionists, chefs and managers — to ensure that athletes are given personalised diets at its centres. The personalised diets will be provided at its centres in Delhi, Patiala, Bengaluru, Thiruvananthapuram, Kolkata, Bhopal, Gandhinagar, Lucknow, Imphal, Guwahati, Mumbai, Sonepat, Aurangabad, Rohtak and Alleppey. SAI has already sought applications from nutritionists, assistant nutritionists, chefs, assistant chefs and mess managers, to put in place an in-house system by September 15, 2019.

Chefs and nutritionists will be hired at a salary of up to Rs 1 lakh. In the new system the diet for each athlete, irrespective of age and category, will be drawn up without any financial ceiling by the nutritionist in consultation with the coach training the athlete and on-campus sports science experts.

Sudden checks by the head of institute and daily checks by the nutritionists will be part of the quality control process, along with a weekly consultation session by nutritionists and coaches with the athletes for their first-hand feedback. The move is an implementation of the decision taken by Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju in June, to end the disparity in diet between senior and junior athletes. Speaking about the implementation of his decision Rijiju said, “Different athletes have different diet requirements and deciding on their food intake purely on the basis of whether they are senior or junior was not the right way. “It had to be corrected, and we have done it. We will ensure that every athlete gets the diet that he or she needs. We will put together a thoroughly professional team for best results.”last_img read more

More vigorous international engagement vital to Middle East peace – UN official

0 Comments

“Violence, not negotiation, continues to be the all too frequent mode of communication in the Middle East,” Under Secretary-General for Political Affairs Kieran Prendergast said in his monthly briefing to the Security Council. “There is a palpable sense of drift and foreboding, [and] neither side is fulfilling its obligations under the Road Map,” he added, referring to the plan sponsored by the so-called Quartet of the UN, European Union, Russian Federation and United States that calls for Israel and the Palestinians to take a series of parallel and reciprocal steps leading to two States living side-by-side in peace by 2005. Mr. Prendergast drew attention to Israel’s recent major operation in the Gaza Strip which resulted in the deaths of a large number of Palestinians, many of them civilians. He also underscored the fact that the terror attacks earlier this month in Taba, Egypt, had struck a place which had been known as haven of coexistence and peace. Speaking in an open session, Mr. Prendergast said the UN remained gravely concerned at the extensive destruction of civilian property by the Israeli army, and that movement restrictions imposed on Palestinians continued to erode the humanitarian situation. He also expressed renewed concern at the continuous, illegal Israeli policy of targeted assassination. Mr. Prendergast also called on the Palestinian Authority to do everything possible to quell the terror emanating from territory under its control, and to pursue a determined course of reform, including the appointment of an empowered Prime Minister. He reminded Council members that the planned Israeli pullout from Gaza and the northern West Bank must be full and complete, and be carried out in the context of the Road Map. Israel and the Palestinian Authority must coordinate the implementation of the withdrawal. “One hears from many quarters the argument that the time has come for a renewed commitment and effort, but that the parties cannot succeed left to themselves. The international community’s more vigorous engagement is therefore an indispensable ingredient if we want to end the violence and bring fresh hope of peace in the Middle East,” he stressed. Meanwhile, the President of the Council said there was widespread concern and dismay in the 15-member body at the situation on the ground and the lack of progress. The members “confirmed yet again that the way forward, in our view, is the Road Map, and that we should urge both parties to begin to implement as soon as possible the provisions of the Road Map and that there should be an end to the violence,” Ambassador Emyr Jones Parry of the United Kingdom told the press following consultations held after the open briefing. The UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and other aid organizations working in the region “should actually be allowed to have unimpeded access,” he said. read more

Review says Red Chris mine failure would eclipse Mount Polley damage

Review says Red Chris mine failure would eclipse Mount Polley damage by Cara McKenna, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 19, 2014 1:37 pm MDT ISKUT, B.C. – The results of a third-party review into the design of a northwestern B.C. gold and copper mine says it has the potential to cause significantly more environmental damage than the recent collapse of the Mount Polley tailings pond.Engineering firm Klohn Crippen Berger made 22 recommendations for the owner of the mine, Imperial Metals (TSX:III), to improve the tailings dam of the Red Chris mine, 500 kilometres north of Terrace.The review found the design of the dam is feasible, but that there are issues that must be addressed.The three-phased review looks at the tailings pond design, water quality predictions and geohazards at the mine site.It identifies a “major design issue” for the soil on which the dams would be built, noting the porous soil could cause damaging water leaks if the planned installation of a fine-grained tailings blanket isn’t enough to limit seepage.It also suggests that designers carefully monitor the water balance for their tailings reservoir and complete a risk assessment around the effects of another nearby landslide.Some of the report’s other suggestions include more detailed documentation, emergency response measures, environmental testing and design changes.“Any technical lessons to be learned from Mount Polley cannot be applied to this facility because the forensic investigation into the cause of that failure has not yet been completed,” the report said.“At the same time, any failure of the Red Chris impoundment will likely have a much more significant environmental impact than the Mount Polley failure.”The Tahltan Central Council instigated the review and Imperial Metals funded it after the company’s Mount Polley mine in B.C.’s central Interior failed in August, sending millions of cubic metres of wastewater and silt into a network of salmon-bearing lakes and rivers.The spill prompted Tahltan members to blockade the Red Chris site with concerns about the mine’s human and environmental impact in their territory.Tahltan elders involved in the protest were calling themselves the Klabona Keepers and met with Imperial Metals and Tahltan leadership prior to the agreement even though the chief and council didn’t endorse the blockade.After more than two weeks, the protest ended with an agreement between Imperial Metals and the Tahltan Central Council for the engineering firm to review the project.At the time of the agreement, Imperial Metals said it would address issues identified in the review “to the reasonable satisfaction” of the nation’s leadership.Meanwhile, the B.C. government has ordered inspections of all tailings dams in B.C., including the one at the Red Chris mine, by this December.

Selloff looms ahead and Air India tags on more wings

0 Comments

first_imgAir India passenger planes are seen parked at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International airport in Mumbai, India, February 7, 2017.Reuters fileAir India will take delivery of six more planes from Boeing by March, a company official told financial news portal Moneycontrol.com on Thursday. This marks the completion of orders which the state-owned carrier placed with the world’s largest aerospace company as far back as December 2005.The company is going ahead with the purchase of the planes even as the government explores options to sell its stake in the lossmaking airline. “The airline may be making losses but it will be sold on a going concern basis. The purchase of the planes is a contract that needs to be honoured,” the official said.There will be three Boeing 777-300 ER and as many 787-8 planes delivered to the national airline by the end of the current financial year, Moneycontrol said.Under the first contract, eight Boeing 777-200LR and 15 Boeing 777-300ER planes were ordered. While all planes of the first type were delivered, three of 777-300ER remain. Of the eight Boeing 777-200LR planes, Air India sold five in order to rationalise the fleet and reduce operational losses.Similarly, as many as 27 Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner planes were ordered under the second win for the US company in 2005. Of these, 24 have been delivered.Air India has a fleet of 119 planes with 44 wide-body Boeing planes and 65 narrow-body Airbus planes. The rest are smaller ATR planes that fly on regional routes. Raghavendra NThe government’s plan to sell its stake in the airline is on track with the group of five ministers, appointed to look into the divestment, holding its first meeting on June 21.While Interglobe Aviation, the company behind India’s largest airline IndiGo, has expressly stated its intent to buy Air India, the Moneycontrol report noted that Tata Sons and private equity firms KKR and Warburg Pincus have also shown interest in buying the airline.From commanding a 35 percent share in the mid-2000s, Air India’s domestic market share has reduced to just 14 percent. The airline stands behind IndiGo and Jet Airways in the pecking order. On the overseas traffic to and from India, it has a 17 percent share.The airline is presently surviving on a Rs 30,231-crore government bailout package, with accumulated losses of around Rs 52,000 crore and as much debt. The package, approved by the previous government in 2012, called for staggered equity infusion over nine years.It has so far received Rs 23,993 crores under the package.The airline reported operating profit of Rs 105 crore in 2015-16 though this was contested by Comptroller and Auditor General which said it was actually an operating loss of Rs 321 crore. The national carrier hasn’t made a net profit in at least a decade.last_img read more

first_imgPapua New Guinea parliament building in central Port Moresby. Photo: ReutersPapua New Guinea police and soldiers stormed the country’s parliament Tuesday, smashing windows and furniture and demanding unpaid APEC bonuses just days after the international summit wrapped up, police and witnesses said.The impoverished Pacific nation had rolled out the red carpet for visiting world leaders during the two-day conference, and even bought 40 Maseratis to ferry the dignitaries around.”A group of policemen and soldiers are outside the parliament and demanding their APEC allowances,” PNG police spokesman Dominic Kakas told AFP. He said that other police were “dealing with it”.No-one was known to be hurt, Kakas said, adding that he did not yet know how many police and soldiers were involved in the incident in the nation’s capital Port Moresby.A witness outside parliament told AFP “hundreds of police and troops” were standing on the front steps of parliament protesting that they had not been paid a special APEC allowance of 350 kina (US$104).”The scene outside parliament is very tense. There are dozens of police cars and army vehicles,” the witness said, adding that a nearby hotel was in lockdown and the protesters were blocking traffic.Footage posted by PNG MP Bryan Kramer on Facebook showed smashed pot plants, photo frames knocked to the floor and broken glass and furniture near the parliament’s entrance.Some locals in PNG, the poorest member of APEC, had expressed anger with the government’s lavish expense for the summit, which came at a time when the developing nation of eight million people is battling a polio outbreak and the resurgence of malaria, while struggling to pay its teachers.last_img read more

How Did Evolution Begin

0 Comments

first_imgThe tree of prelife has two roots, 0 and 1, and infinitely many lineages. The perfect prelife catalyst is a string that enhances the rates of all chemical reactions in its own lineage (as shown in red for the string 0100). Partial catalysis occurs if a string catalyses some reactions in its own lineage (as shown in blue for the string 1000). Image copyright: Ohtsuki and Nowak. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Explore further In their study, Hisashi Ohtsuki of the Japan Science and Technology Agency and the Tokyo Institute of Technology, along with Martin Nowak of Harvard University, have investigated how evolution might have first begun. As the researchers explain, the origin of life is a transition from chemistry to biology, and has been widely studied. Here, Ohtsuki and Nowak have presented a model where a purely chemical system (prelife) becomes more efficient (catalytic prelife) and then builds the sequences needed for replication, finally resulting in life. Their work is published in a recent issue of Proceedings of the Royal Society B.“As you know, the ability of replication is critical for life,” Ohtsuki told PhysOrg.com. “We can conceive several forms of life, such as prelife catalysts and replicators, as in our paper. We are interested in which form of life is most efficient and thus is selected in prelife (a soup of chemicals). The significance of our study is that we have mathematically shown for the first time that replicators, which have the ability to remain attached with a growing sequence, have a great advantage over the other forms of life. Replication is usually taken for granted in the study of evolution. We think that our result gives a justification of why replicators are so dominant.”In the scientists’ model, prelife is made of two types of monomers (0 and 1) that randomly link together to form a polymer chain. By adding a 0 or a 1, longer chains are produced from shorter ones. The researchers created a simple tree of life based on this growth process, where either a 0 or a 1 is added to the end of the preceding chain to make a longer one. Though starting with just a single monomer, this tree of prelife has infinitely many lineages. As the researchers explain, some of these prelife sequences are catalysts, and can enhance certain reactions in prelife. Specifically, they increase the rate at which monomers are added to sequences in the specific prelife reactions that created them. The faster the rate of reactions to create a certain prelife catalyst, the more of them there will be. As the researchers found, the sequences that are most highly selected among prelife catalysts are perfectly catalyzed prelife sequences (those that enhance the rates of all their upstream reactions). (PhysOrg.com) — Life’s ability to replicate itself is essential for evolution, yet even the simplest kind of replication requires a relatively complex system. So what kind of non-replicating system might have served as the predecessor of evolution, paving the way for life as we know it? The answer, according to a recent study, is a kind of “prelife” — a chemical system that can lead to information and diversity, and that is capable of selection and mutation, but does not yet have the ability to self-replicate.center_img “Prelife refers to chemical reactions in a soup of chemicals that consists of amino acids, phosphoric acids, nucleobases, and so on,” Ohtsuki explained. “Simply speaking, prelife supplies ‘materials’ for life. But prelife does not have an ability of replication, because it cannot catalyze any reactions. Catalytic prelife is a big step forward for life, because it can enhance certain reactions. A most promising candidate for life among prelife catalysts are those which can catalyze their own upstream reactions. We believe that catalytic ability is a big step, yet not enough for the emergence of life, as we have shown in our paper: we need another step, that is, replicators.”Replicators – for example, a simple sequence of all 0 monomers – are among the sequences that prelife dynamics can create. The difference between a replicator and a perfect prelife catalyst, as the researchers explain, is that a prelife catalyst attaches to a sequence to increase the rate at which an activated monomer is added, and then detaches itself. In contrast, a replicator remains attached to the growing sequence. “The fundamental difference lies in that replicators can remain attached to a growing sequence so that it can ‘go along’ with it,” Ohtsuki explained. “By doing so, replicators need to attach to a template only once to complete the replication. On the other hand, prelife catalysts have to attach to and detach from the target sequence many times, because in each reaction the target extends in length by one. Therefore, a longer prelife catalyst must catalyze its upstream reactions a number of times, resulting in an inefficient replication.”Overall, replicators have certain advantages over catalytic prelife that cause the replicators to be selected over prelife. As the researchers explain, ongoing competition between prelife and catalytic prelife creates certain selection thresholds that limit the lengths of the sequences. Most importantly, the researchers found that catalytic activity must increase exponentially with sequence length to keep its abundance high; otherwise a longer sequence becomes less abundant. In contrast, the threshold of replicator activity converges to a fixed value, suggesting that even long replicators can sustain its high abundance. For replicators, the critical replication rate is almost independent of the rate of the replicator. As prelife catalysts and replicators compete for the same resources (monomers), this ability to grow longer is what gives replicators their edge, ultimately leading to the origin of evolution.More information: Hisashi Ohtsuki and Martin A.

The investment was led by Marubeni, with whom the company has been developing the Japanese market since 2017. The round saw further investment from Capitol Health, who previously led the company’s Series A in 2016, as well as new participation from several top investors in Australia. Approximately 10 percent of the round was set aside for individual radiologists and other physicians who have either trained or used the company’s medical AI solutions. Enlitic plans to use the funding to enhance its artificial intelligence product portfolio, expand its engineering and data scientist teams, and focus on regulatory approval for clinical use in the U.S., Australia, Japan, Europe, Canada and Brazil.Enlitic uses deep learning and other forms of artificial intelligence to develop algorithms that identify and analyze suspicious findings in medical images. Working closely with hospitals and radiology providers around the world, the company has developed a comprehensive platform enabling the development, validation and seamless integration of clinical AI at scale. Early applications of Enlitic’s technology were shown to speed up radiologist’s interpretation by over 20 percent, while improving true positive rates and reducing false positive rates by over 10 percent. Other applications were shown to assist in the identification of malignancy up to two years earlier.Enlitic’s first product interprets chest X-rays, triaging normal from abnormal scans, and detecting and characterizing more than 40 distinct abnormalities such as cardiomegaly, lung nodules and pneumothorax. Chest X-rays are notoriously difficult to interpret given the image’s lack of specificity, yet they are still the most common type of radiological examination, representing an estimated 45 percent of all studies globally. Enlitic is working with partners around the world for the relevant approvals to deploy this product in several countries, helping radiologists to interpret chest X-rays faster, and with higher accuracy.Recognizing the massive complexity of the average diagnostic workflow, Enlitic is rapidly training models to assist in more areas of radiology. In January of this year, the company launched their new datacenter with a graphics processing unit (GPU) supercluster enabling model development at more than 10 times the speed. In February, they launched their global beta program, enabling their models to be regionally tuned and tested in several countries simultaneously. At their current pace, Enlitic expects to be able to interpret 95 percent of all types of X-rays by the end of 2019, and 95 percent of common computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans by 2021.Marubeni, who led the Series B investment round, is a Japanese trading company and one of the largest sogo shosha, (general trading companies), with 12 business divisions. Marubeni is a key partner to Enlitic and will help drive development and adoption of Enlitic’s products in Japan. Marubeni added, “Japan especially suffers from an aging population and a shrinking birth rate, placing an increasing burden on hospitals and radiologists. With Enlitic’s groundbreaking AI products, we see a way to accurately and efficiently address our current healthcare challenges in Japan and Asia, while providing superior healthcare.”For more information: www.enlitic.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.

first_imgThe finance ministry announced on Friday it was abolishing restrictions on fixed term bank deposits, introduced last year along with other capital controls to prevent a bank run.The ministry also said it was increasing the current limit for monthly money transfers per person within the Republic, regardless of purpose, from €15,000 to €20,000.The same applies to companies, which can now transfer €100,000 per month instead of €75,000.Cyprus introduced capital controls last March to prevent a run on banks after a bailout shut down a major lender, and imposed losses on large deposits in a second.It was conditional for €10 billion in aid from the EU and the International Monetary Fund.Based on the plan for a gradual relaxation on transactions, domestic controls will be fully eased first, before transactions involving money transfers abroad are scrapped.There has been an incremental easing of restrictions, but cash withdrawals are still limited to €300 per day and cashing of cheques is not allowed.The ministry said on Friday that according to the roadmap, which was published in August 2013, all milestones of the second stage have been met — disbursement of funds under the macroeconomic adjustment program for the recapitalisation of co-ops, submission of the co-ops restructuring plan to the European Commission, recapitalisation of Hellenic Bank, approval of Bank of Cyprus’ restructuring plan — therefore it is possible proceed with further easing of the restrictions.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSenior Living | Search AdsCheap Senior Apartments in Rowland Heights Are Turning HeadsSenior Living | Search AdsUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Resort owner hits out at unions

0 Comments

first_imgBy Bejay BrowneTHE OWNER of a wellness resort in Latsi, Paphos has denied claims that all Cypriot and EU staff were fired and replaced with ‘volunteer’ workers being given free accommodation and food in return for unpaid labour.Ajay Goyal is the owner of Zening resort, which finally opened to the public last year after overcoming numerous bureaucratic and financial obstacles that had threatened to scupper the launch of the eco-friendly, sustainable, health and wellbeing resort.“We spent three hours at the labour office last week. This followed numerous investigations at the site and obviously nothing was found as we do everything legally,” Goyal told the Cyprus Mail.He added: “All of our employees are Cypriot or European nationals; we don’t have any non EU employees.”Savvas Kalasides of SEK union said the unions had complaints from around 20 people saying they had been fired and some replaced by the owner’s friends or volunteers. “We are waiting to see the findings of the labour office. If he is giving a place to stay and food and not paying people, this isn’t something which is allowed in Cyprus, it’s very strange for us.”The businessman pointed out that Zening has paid more than €150,000 in social insurance payments so far and called the union’s comments “racist, Bolshevik lies”.“They said we had 45 illegal staff; how could they imagine in this day and age that anyone would do this. Laws are in place and if it were true I would turn myself into the nearest police station for investigation straight away.”Goyal say that in two years, Zening hasn’t done anything illegal and puts the latest debacle down to union anger over employees failure to join their ranks.“They are simply upset that none of our employees want to sign a union contract and instead sign private employment contracts with us.”However, he noted that Zening does support the ethos of social environmental travellers. He said many people chose to travel the world and some come to Cyprus and take part in a variety of campaigns, including clean ups, helping the turtles and highlighting illegal bird trapping practices.He stressed: “If they stay with us, they don’t have any access to our work areas and don’t undertake any work at Zening. It’s preposterous to suggest that Americans and Australians would leave cushy jobs, pay for their own flights to come and volunteer at Zening just for a place to stay and food. I don’t even know how to answer these accusations, I’m stunned.”Goyal said that the labour office had taken all of the employee contracts to examine them, but stressed that nothing is untoward.“We are part of the life blood and oxygen of the community and have put at least three million euros into the local economy and homes this last year,” he said.“They are making us miserable but I won’t be intimidated. There hasn’t been this level of foreign investment in the area for years, our treatment has been barbaric and I’m sick of it.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
