Kudankulam nuclear plant top of agenda at Modi-Putin meet: All you need to know about KKNPP

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting Russia and arrived in St Petersburg Thursday morning. It is expected to meet soon with Russian President Vladimir Poutine and the Kudankulam nuclear power plant (KKNPP) located in Tamil Nadu is one of the most important issues that the two leaders are expected to discuss about them. The plant has two units on hold and must be carried out in cooperation with a Russian company. The two countries are likely to sign 12 agreements and the Kudankulam agreement is established, will be the highlight of the trip for PM Modi in Russia. Here is everything you need to know about the KKNPP Agreement and the Prime Minister’s visit:
1. KKNPP was the result of an intergovernmental agreement between India and the former Soviet Union in 1988. During the same period, two other similar proposals were rejected, while the protest was blocking the government’s plans to build Peringome plants near Kannur And Ernakulam Bhoothathankettu, the two districts of Kerala.
2. KKNPP has encountered obstacles as the protests prevented the government from moving forward with the project. At the dawn of the Kudankulam demonstrations six years ago, 182 people were arrested, many accused of sedition. In total, 8000 cases were recorded. But little by little, the government managed to carry out the project. Over the years, four reactor units were built and operationalized. However, the plant has not given the promised power during the warranty tests. Its generation was only about 52 percent.

3. The last two reactor units will be constructed and installed jointly by Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd and Atomstroyexport. The latter is a subsidiary of the Rosatom regulatory body of the Russian nuclear complex. Each unit will have a power generation capacity of 1,000 MW.
4. PM Modi and Putin reached an agreement in 2015. According to the agreement, the agreement to build the 5 unit and 6 nuclear reactors unit at the plant was to be signed in 2016. The agreement had an obstacle with respect to the line Was to be extended by Russia.
5. The visit will try to seal the agreement so that the plant can be fully operational soon. The success of the agreement will also increase bilateral trade. Bilateral trade between India and Russia amounted to $ 7.8 billion to date. The number has dropped significantly compared to 10 billion in 2014. The two countries plan to increase to at least $ 30 billion over the next five years.
6. India has set up a “Doing in India” pavilion at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum and nearly 60 leading Indian companies should be part of the summit. The Indian delegation also held round tables and economic and economic breakfast between India and Eurasia. The 12 bilateral agreements signed between countries in relation to trade, science, technology, railways, cultural exchanges, civil nuclear cooperation.
The first stop will be the PM Modi Memorial Cemetery Piskariovskoye. It commemorates the 5 lakh Russian soldiers who died during World War II in Leningrad. The then prime minister will be received by Putin as Konstantin Palace, official residence of the Russian president. The summit will be followed by a state dinner hosted by Putin for PM Modi. PM Modi will also be present at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum as a man of honor. This will be the first time that Modi PM will be present in the business-with-politics forum.

BJP shows flexibility over beef ban, says states are free to decide on slaughter of cows

BJP shows flexibility over beef ban, says states are free to decide on slaughter of cows

Being in the middle of a storm at the center of the ban on the sale of cattle for the massacre, the BJP in power has shown some flexibility. Assuming that most of the BJP leaders in Meghalaya eat beef, the party has also said that it is up to state governments to decide to ban the slaughter of cows.
Speaking to India today on the recent government notification Narendra Modi prohibits the sale of cattle for the massacre, the BJP’s national voice in charge of Meghalaya Nalin Kohli said: “The BJP clearly stated that the issue having a law in a State in the slaughter of cows is to be decided by the state and not by the Center. ”
Of the BJP’s position in states such as Northeastern and Southern states, where the majority of the population consumes beef, Kohli said: “Any state government decides to have a law or does not have a law on the slaughter of cows, Account the local food habits of this particular state and in the Northeast, each state government will take into account. ”
Kohli’s statement makes it clear that the BJP is open to states that are governed by what beef consumption and do not interfere with local eating habits. There is speculation that BJP governments are banning meat in the north-eastern and southern states, where consumption is considered normal.
Taking a flexible position, on the ban on beef, BJP avoided rebellion in their ranks. He also lost his shame because many BJP leaders in the Northeast and the South consume beef.
BJP leaders in Meghalaya, including their head of state unity Shibun Lyngdoh, have already taken the position that if the party comes to power in the 2018 Assembly elections, it does not prohibit beef consumption. Another leader, Bernard Marak, president of the Tura town unit in the hills of Garo BJP became the promise that meat prices would be cheaper if the party won the state elections.
In May 2015, the Minister of State of the Union of Origin Kiren Rijiju said that he eats beef and no one could prevent him from doing so. He was responding to the comments of the Minister of Minorities Affairs of the Union and those who wanted to eat beef could go to Pakistan.
Later Rijiju said that he had been “misunderstood”. However, he always maintained that India was a secular country and that eating habits can not be stopped. He said that just as Hindu faith and feelings must be respected in Hindu majority states, those of other communities are respected in their own dominant states.
Assuming a problem in order to expand the base of other states, BJP has clearly established its position regarding the meat embargo. The party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has focused on the Northeast, West Bengal and Kerala. Meat consumption is considered normal in all these states. Any attempt to curb the risk of encountering strong resistance.

They have eaten contaminated feed. The girls were transferred to hospital in the Mahbubabad region undergoing treatment.

Three of them were admitted to the intensive care unit. All of them are in danger, according to doctors.

There were about 200 students in the hostel. They have dinner with rice, tomato and potato curry, and Rasam.

Around 10:30 am, some students began to show signs of discomfort and vomited. Later, several other students had similar problems. The hostel authorities called 108 ambulance and transferred the students to the hospital Mahbubabad.

The students alleged that they were served rice infected with worms and without Rasam preparation. When they brought the matter to the attention of the stove, they were answered rudely.

The parents of the students also said that their children repeatedly complained that they were not getting adequate food.

The parents alleged that the school principal, Mrs. Manjula, did not achieve the same problem after personally arguing her complaint.

To get to know the incident, the Deputy Minister and Minister of Education, Kadiam Srihari, called the auxiliary district of Preethi Meena and asked him to take stock of the situation

Loading Up on Citrus Daily Can Reduce the Risk of Dementia in Older Adults: Study

Citrus fruits have been associated with protecting the body from various diseases, as they are rich in vitamin C, folic acid, thiamin and various antioxidants.

According to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition, elderly people who consume citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, limes and lemons every day can reduce the risk of dementia by 23%.

Researchers at the University of Tohuku Japan found that daily intake of these fruits may reduce the chances of developing an incurable brain disease by nearly a quarter. Read on to learn more about the study.

The study suggests that these fruits contain citric acid that still has a chemical called nobiletine is responsible for slowing memory deficit in animal testing.

The researchers looked at about 13,000 seven-year-olds to see how many of them developed dementia. The results suggest that people who eat citrus fruits were 23 percent less likely to develop dementia than those who ate less than twice a week.

According to researchers at the University of Tohuku few biological studies indicate that citrus can have preventive effects against cognitive decline.

However, no study has actually shown the relationship between citrus consumption and the rate of dementia.

The exact relationship between citrus and dementia has yet to be established, but the study suggests that frequent consumption may reduce the risk of dementia if not cure.

Citrus fruits are all healthy to consume. Therefore, the best way to load on citrus fruits is to consume a lot of lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit or mandarin orange. Citrus fruits are an excellent source of vitamin C, which also strengthens the immune system and keep the skin shiny.

They are an excellent source of soluble fiber, which helps improve digestive health and promote weight loss.

Cancer more common than marriages, says study

Cancer more common than marriages, says study

London: Being diagnosed with cancer is now a common-life event that will marry or have the first baby, a research report revealed in the UK.

Researchers found that more than 70 000 new cancer cases each year in the UK make new marriages.

The latest figures also show that there are almost 50 000 new cancer cases each year in England and Wales than women giving birth to their first child.

According to the report of the British organization Macmillan Cancer Support, a similar number of degrees awarded each year in the UK on new cases of cancer.

Cancer affects many people at the forefront of their lives. More than 1.2 million people were diagnosed with cancer under age 65 in the last 10 years, more than 340,000 were diagnosed in the 20, 30 and 40 years.

The research found that when receiving a diagnosis of cancer is an increasingly common life event, it is the disease that people most fear.

For one in 10 in the UK, cancer is the greatest fear of all, before losing one’s own death or even terrorism.

The report emphasizes that people’s perceptions and fears about cancer may be unnecessary to help them understand their options when diagnosed.

When they were told they had cancer, one in three (34%) said they were stunned and could not take anything.

As one in two people will develop cancer at some point in their lives and more and more people live longer after cancer, the researchers asked the public to better understand the reality of a cancer diagnosis.

“It’s been said that cancer changed his life, and that can leave people feeling that they were pushed into the unknown, bewildered and unprepared,” said Lynda Thomas, CEO of Macmillan Cancer Support.

“But as more and more people are diagnosed with cancer, it’s important that we’re all better informed about what to expect if one day we get this shocking information,” Thomas said.

Childhood obesity may lead to hip disease, suggests research

Childhood obesity may lead to hip disease, suggests research

Obesity can put children at increased risk for hip disease, a condition that can cause life-threatening morbidity, new research suggests.

The female slippery epiphysis (fats) is the disease of the most common adolescent of the hip. The condition still requires surgery, can cause severe pain and, often leads to a hip replacement in adolescence or early adulthood.

“Ultimately, this study helps us understand one of the major diseases affecting the hip in childhood,” said Daniel Perry, one of the authors of the study at the Institute of Translational Medicine University of Liverpool, UK.

Children with this disorder have decreased their range of motion and are often unable to complete hip flexion or hip flexing completely inward.

Early recognition of this disorder is important because the deformation can be erased if the sliding remains untreated.

In order to identify children at high risk for this disease, researchers examined hospital and community problems to explore factors associated with this disorder and explanations of delayed diagnosis.

All files reviewed were people younger than 16 years of age with a diagnosis of this disorder and whose electronic medical history was carried out by one of 650 primary care centers in the UK between 1990 and 2013.

Using the size and weight of children recorded in the notes at a time before the disease was diagnosed, researchers were able to identify that obese children appear at the highest risk of the disease, according to the study published in Archives magazine Of Disease in Childhood.

“This is the best available evidence linking childhood obesity disease – which makes this condition as one of the few obesity-related diseases that can cause any illness throughout the life of childhood,” Perry said.

A 21-year-old British man gave birth to a girl? Can a man become pregnant?

As soon as I turned on my computer and started my online search to start the day, this brought me closer: A 21-year-old Brit has given birth to a daughter.

And my first instinct is that the man may be pregnant? Well, as far as I know (a science graduate), a man can not get pregnant.

He wanted to read the story of the 21-year-old English man, named Hayden Cross, became the first man in the UK to give birth to a baby.

So before you blindly believe this news, this is what you should know. And most importantly, can a man get pregnant and have a baby?

The truth is that Hayden Cross, 21, is transgender, which means that she was born as a woman (men trapped in a female body).

According to online reports, he lives as a man legally for three years and underwent a gender transition with hormone treatment from a woman to a man. However, she put her gender transition in the hope of getting pregnant.

She also kept her breasts and ovaries to carry a child. (Read: Bidhan Barua – The man who changed sex is now a married woman)

According to reports, he wanted to freeze his eggs at the NHS to have a baby in the future. However, medical authorities have refused to do so.

When I was financially able to get private procedures, I was looking for a sperm donor. And, fortunately, it was found through Facebook.

Hayden Cross designed with the help of a sperm donor and announced her pregnancy in January, which was the first case in the country.

According to The Sun, Cruz called her daughter an “angel” and was quoted as saying: “She is perfect in every way … she is so good.

I’m very fortunate. “The 21-year-old plans to resume their transition pause In the next step, they are going to withdraw their breast and ovaries (Read: Naina Singh – the 16-year-old girl who fought every obstacle to becoming a daughter)

At least 15 people with chronic illnesses suffer from mental disorders in India, according to a national survey conducted in 2016 by NIMHANS, establishing the country’s largest mental health.

However, for more than 19 months, the Indian Institute of Medical Sciences in India in Bhopal has not seen a single mental health patient.

In May 2015, AIIMS Bhopal stopped its OPD for these patients – one of the most active, attended 8,452 patients since 2013 and at least 15 patients per day in the last month. Reason: both the teachers are leaving, one of NIMHANS Bangalore

The Indian Express visited the AIIMS facility in Bhopal accessed official records to find that the poor state of the psychiatric department reflects a major problem in one of the six new functional institutions established for “correction of regional imbalances” in care health.

Like the pile of debris that is next to corridors without light behind the bright glass and the front of the AIIMS brick building in the heart of Bhopal.

AIIMS Bhopal began clinical services August 15, 2012 and the DPO services on January 26, 2013. Five years later, it has not yet obtained a full-time director, 80 p. 100 faculty positions are vacant and occupied only 73 327 seats intended for senior medical residents.

“Do you imagine that AIIMS closes its mental health services? In March, 2015 alone, the institute assisted 1059 patients.

However, during the next two months, the services were closed. In December 2016, a doctor was hired, but he was a resident doctor, not a right in itself, “said a senior consultant from AIIMS Bhopal.

And this, when the NIMHANS survey released this relationship of Madhya Pradesh a psychiatrist for 20 lakh people.

“For almost 15 months, patients had to be referred to other hospitals in the state or abroad.” When is the last time you heard of AIIMS patients? AIIMS is supposed to be the main reference center of the country, “says The consultant.

In March 2014, AIIMS Bhopal had 27 departments with 61 faculty members. And, according to official documents, the institute currently has 41 departments. But on the ground, the number of functional departments was reduced to 25, and the staff to 59.

It takes time for AIIMS Bhopal to become a brand, says Professor Nitin Madhusudan Nagarkar | Read here

For example, the Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery, which deals with heart conditions, works on paper, but did not attend a single patient since June 2015.

In May 2015, his only option, an assistant professor of AIIMS New Delhi had left. And that, for a department of that area of ​​4 80 patients in the two years that worked.

“This is a basic requirement for any third-level hospital, but the service was closed. We hope it will be reopened in the coming months,” said a senior official at the institute’s administration.

It is a similar story in the oncology department, where the only teacher who joined the radiotherapy service in July 2013 left seven months later. The institute has not provided cancer-related services in the last three years.

In addition, AIIMS Bhopal is still subject to key services such as cardiology, nephrology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, urology and nuclear medicine.

The Department of Ophthalmology operates the fifth most active OPD of the institute, welcoming 19,886 patients in 2015-16. But from May 2016 until February 2017, he worked without a single member of the faculty and with only four resident physicians.

“We are one of the most active OPD here so it is even more important that there is at least one member of the higher faculty to handle complex cases.

At present, medical residents with less than three years of experience in handling the DPO. This is a case of trial and error, “said one resident physician.

Faceless Fish Among New And Weird Deep Sea Finds

Faceless Fish Among New And Weird Deep Sea Finds

SYDNEY: Strange and wonderful creatures with no face and other fish, many new species were transported deep water off Australia on a scientific voyage that explores some parts of the unexplored ocean before.

The month-long trip off the east coast of the country has been investigating life that hides in a dark, cold chasm that plunges four kilometers (2.5 miles) below the surface using nets, sonar and cameras Of deep water.

The scientific chief on board “The Researcher” Tim O’Hara Museums Victoria to AFP on Wednesday that the search area was “the most unexplored environment on earth.”

Dice and crunchy red rock, inflated shells, blind spiders and deep eels were collected since scientists began their journey – Launceston North Tasmania towards the Coral Sea – May 15.

An unusual faceless fish was also collected, which has been recorded once before by the pioneering scientific team at HMS Challenger in Papua New Guinea in 1873.

“He does not have eyes or nose and mouth visible is down,” O’Hara said of the ship.

At such great depths, it is so dark that creatures often do not have eyes or produce their own light through bioluminescence, he added.

Another finding was that carnivores use silicon spiral fused sponges, glass efficacy. They get small crustaceans that cling to their velcro spines, slowly digesting there.
This technique differs from most offshore sponges, which feed on bacteria and other unicellular organisms filtered from passing currents.

“We have 27 scientists on board who are leaders in their fields and tell me that about a third of what we find are new species,” O’Hara said, with several thousand copies found to date and from two weeks to Go travelers.

Life at such depths is one of overwhelming pressure, there is no light, little food and subzero temperatures, with animals calling the home’s only means of survival.

As food is scarce, they are usually small and move slowly. Many are frozen and spend their lives afloat, while others have fierce thorns and fangs and wait until their food arrives.

Working in such an environment was difficult, O’Hara admitted each fishing, taking up to seven hours to deploy and retrieve the equipment and its eight kilometers of cable from the bottom of the sea, as it is so far.

However, the data collected has helped improve understanding of Australia’s high seas habitats, their biodiversity and ecological processes that support them, O’Hara said.

“This will help their conservation and management and help protect the impacts of climate change, pollution and other human activities,” he said.

Space junk can destroy satellites, scientists say

Space junk can destroy satellites, scientists say

“The problem of space debris is getting worse every year,” Ben Greene, head of the Australian Center for Space Research, told AFP.

Some 170 million pieces of debris or “space debris” are currently in orbit and only 22,000 Earth are being tracked, said Greene, who is organizing a conference between international space science in Canberra.

“We lost three or four satellites a year to the collision of space debris. We are very close, according to NASA estimates, of five to ten years to lose everything,” said M. Greene, adding that “an avalanche catastrophic collisions Could quickly destroy all orbiting satellites, it is now possible. ”

Greene suggests that such collisions can jeopardize the global economy, which shows the example of satellite dependence in Australia.

“The Australian economy is totally space dependent,” said M. Greene. “We are a large country with few people and the only way to treat it, whether with surveillance, security and search and rescue, comes from space.”

A major collision of space stress is “inevitable,” if the problem is not addressed properly, space junk expert Moriba Jah University of Texas, who joined the Canberra conference told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

“You drove on the highways here when you have a lot of fog or mist, and you have to go very slowly, and not really know what’s around you.” It’s the perfect analogy with space now, “said Jah.

NASA debris defined as “any artificial object in orbit around the Earth that no longer serves a useful function.” Such space freedom can move at speeds up to 27,000 km / h, “fast enough for a relatively small piece of orbital debris damage from a satellite or spacecraft,” according to NASA.

NASA says about 500,000 pieces of debris are being processed, while more than 20,000 fragments are “larger than a baseball orbiting Earth.”

It may even be a potential hazard to the International Space Station (ISS) as well as several spacecraft and shuttles with humans overseas.

Proper removal of the “waste” space has become a more important concern because the simple act of throwing objects away from the ships has created a lot of space debris.

In February of this year, NASA astronauts dropped a capsule for the ISS waste by a ton and a half in what looked like the largest example of sand in space.
