This farmer with oral cancer has quit chewing tobacco, but cannot stop growing it

Khan is a 40-year-old tobacco grower from the Belagavi district of Karnataka. He also used to chew a little tobacco grew, until he reached tongue cancer in 2015. He was treated in a private hospital in Sangli, a district of southern neighbors Maharashtra Belagavi. He took a loan of Rs 40,000 for his treatment he managed to pay only Rs 5000.

“I can barely open my mouth,” Khan said at an event to present the report of the second global smoking survey among adults in early June. “I can not eat properly or taste the food.”

Dr. Pankaj Chaturvedi, a physician and a tobacco control activist, asked Khan to talk about his personal experience as a tobacco grower and the victim of a tobacco-induced cancer.

Tobacco growers have been caught in a war between two lobbies – tobacco health groups and pressure from the tobacco industry. In the last eight months, the ads have appeared as motorcycle tricycle signs and banners depicting a tobacco grower with his hands folded together.

The man is supposed to appeal to his livelihood to be protected from activists “hidden program” control. Health activists allege that cigarette companies are behind the advertising campaign that allows farmers to experience the health risks of growing and consuming tobacco.

In April, the Ministry of Interior banned the Indian Public Health Foundation to receive foreign funds, citing anti-smoking lobby. Days after the move, with advertising tobacco producer thesaures resumed, this time with a message thanking the government to act against NGOs.

Ironically, the basis of public health in India carried out its campaign against smoking, at the request of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Health, JP Nadda, was praised by the World Health Organization work itself.

The tobacco producers launching the Global Adult Tobacco Survey have argued that advertisements do not represent them. Mallikarjun Jakati, Krushika Karnataka Sangha, a farmers’ association in Karnataka, said the ads were supported by large companies. “You who have money to give those big ads?” You have, he asked.

During the presentation of the conference, Khan, the farmer’s tobacco, spoke out against growing tobacco.

“Tobacco farming must be stopped,” he said. “You get more money for the increase, it’s true, but this money does not stay with us.” Tobacco-related diseases, such as cancer, require spending money.

After treatment, Khan stopped chewing tobacco and advised his friends to stop chewing tobacco as well. But he can not stop growing tobacco, even if he wants to.

The Khan family cultivate tobacco for two generations. Khan is a poor farmer can not raise enough seed capital to switch to another crop. Banks, he said, offer loans to farmers only if they grow cash crops such as tobacco and sugar cane.

“Banks are not interested if we grow other than tobacco,” he said. “The benefits are lower when you grow other crops.”

But in the tobacco area, Khan can not make enough profits to invest in pesticides, seeds and fertilizers a year.

What next for Indian women’s badminton after Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu? Not much

What next for Indian women’s badminton after Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu? Not much

Indian men enjoy a purple match at the badminton circuit in the world. An Indian has won three Superseries titles and recorded two men’s singles finalists since the Rio Olympic Games.

Indian men also showed the depth in number in recent years. India currently has four passers in the top 25 and six in the top-35 singles singles. Four of them will play in the world championship in August.

On the women’s side, however, it’s a completely different story. Olympic medalists Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu are the only two Indians in the top 40. The difference between the number 15 and the highest ranked Indian Nehwal is huge. In fact, there are only five other Indians in the top 100.

Nehwal and Sindhu lifted the flag of India in the badminton world for most of the last decade. While Nehwal, at 27, is not going to be there for long, Sindhu was only 21 years old, among the top five in the world and maybe not even touched the ceiling. India looks straightforward on the side of women for at least the next five years with Sindhu. But what after that?

Rituparna Das, aged twenty, is the national champion, but has had problems making a big impact on international tournaments. Regarded as the most talented of the second level, Rituparna has constantly fought against his fitness and is very prone to injury. In addition to winning the title of the Polish International 2016, he has gained nothing.

She came to the Syed Modi International Grand Prix Gold Rooms in January, before playing her first tournament at the Superseries Open India, where she lost in round 16 in the Olympic champion Carolina Marin.

During the Singapore Open Superseries, he was beaten in the first round by Hsu Ya Ching of China Taipei. She lost in the first round again to open the Thai Grand Prix to eventual champions Ratchanok Intanon.

Tanvi Lad was first highlighted for winning the Bahrain International Challenge in 2014, after finishing the last winner of the tournament in 2012 and again at Swiss International a year later. He also did well in the team events, winning bronze at the Asian Games in 2014 and the Uber Cup in 2014 and 2016.

However, despite his age of 24, he never entered the top 50 in the world and is struggling to overcome the first rounds of the Superseries and Gold Grand Prix. Lad has qualified for the 2017 World Cup in Glasgow, but his loss of record record win would indicate another early exit.

Ruthvika Shivani Gadde won the national championship in less than 10, 13, 15, 17, 19 and the elders, but his biggest claim fame is beat PV Sindhu in the final of the South Asian women’s women’s tournament in 2016 .

Another important victory was at the Russian Grand Prix Open last year when he was only 19 years old. Another herb prospect of the National Academy of India P Gopichand, Gadde has the age of his side for an assault on the ranking, in his highest position so far was 49 years in the last 12 months, who fought against jaundice And injuries that affected his progress.

As Tamil Nadu gets ready to switch to deep-sea fishing, is it the end of the row with Sri Lanka?

As Tamil Nadu gets ready to switch to deep-sea fishing, is it the end of the row with Sri Lanka?

The Palk Strait, a narrow strip of water in the Indian Ocean that separates Sri Lanka from Tamil Nadu in India, is a very controversial area among the fishing communities of the two countries. Indian fishermen were often arrested and shot at times by the Sri Lankan authorities for alleged raiding their waters in their mechanized trawlers. Last week, nine fishermen from Tamil Nadu were arrested for fishing in the waters of Lanka.

In May the Government of Tamil Nadu has developed a plan to reduce the number of trawlers in Palk Bay by converting 2,000 vessels of this type into deep-sea fishing vessels by 2020. Governments in the region and the State would provide 28 million financial subsidies for this.

In the order of the Government, the Department of Livestock, Dairy and Fisheries said:

… frequent seizure of fishing boats by the Sri Lankan government causes a sense of anxiety and insecurity among Tamil Nadu fishermen as a whole. During the discussions on the level of fishing, Tamil Nadu fishermen have expressed their willingness to diversify trawling in offshore fishing operations gradually over a period of three years, provided that the Government of India provides financial support for the same.

The passage of trawling in deep-sea fishing would mean that fishermen could leave Palk Bay and fish in the waters of the Bay of Bengal.

The Tamil Nadu fishing community celebrated the move. “We really do not have a choice if we want to avoid having problems with the Sri Lankan authorities,” said M Ilango, president of the National Fisheries Forum and one of the leaders of the fishing community to provide the transition to deep-sea fishing.

But there is still uncertainty as to whether the fishing community will adapt to deep-sea fishing and whether this will reduce tensions in Palk Bay.

As part of the joint Union and State Governments project, 500 large vessels will be transformed into deep-sea fishing vessels with nets connected to tuna fishing in the Bay of Bengal in 2018. In 2019 another 500 will be converted to 1 000 more in 2020. A sum of Rs 80 lakhs will be spent on each boat – half of which would come from the Center, 20% from the state, 20% from institutional funds and 10% from the owner of the vessel .

The Center has already released Rs 200 crore for the conversion of 750 trawlers in the first phase. The State Government will contribute Rs 86 crore in the project, including the daily allowance of Rs 5,000 per family during the last three months of construction.

“Only traditional / artisanal fishers and their societies / associations / SHG / FPO are eligible for the benefits of this component,” a letter from the Department of Livestock, Dairy and Fisheries dated March 9 said.

G Ramakrishnan, head of the fishermen’s community in the Pudukottai district, said his fellow fishermen were ready to start deep sea fishing if they received money. “Fishing is our way of life, so we can easily adapt to deep sea fishing if we need it,” he said. “Many of us Pudukottai can move north to Karaikal for better access to the sea.”

Telangana land scam: Google, Microsoft, domestic companies affected by unclear land titles

Investors are buying land only from government or business houses because they do not have clear titles.

Telangana scam land: Google, Microsoft, domestic companies affected by unclear deeds

Bijay Agarwal, MD, Salarpuria Sattva Group, said that investors absolved motives that government or business houses, as these values ​​are clear.

In the latest land scam, defendants colluded with land registry agents to acquire hundreds of acres of disputed land in Miyapur Hyderabad and other localities. In addition, senior Telangana Rashtra Samiti are accused in the scam. PS Prasad, a former lawyer for the group of Cyrus Inversiones Shapoorji Pallonji, helped the group to obtain some assets. Secretary-General K Keshava Rao TRS, whose family acquired disputed land from the Prasad trading companies, announced last week that he was leaving the matter after sustained pressure from the opposition.

The government issued a TRS order last week the cancellation of certain powers of officials of the land registry department. But Congressional opposition, Bharatiya Janata Party and Telugu Party Desam claimed that the land that the government at least Rs 1 lakh million rupees in Hyderabad have been invaded during the three-year TRS rule. IT Minister and Telangana industries KT Rama Rao, son of Prime Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, said the government was ready to contact investors to alleviate their concerns.

But the latest scam on earth could affect short-term investment in the Telangana market, a world real estate adviser said. The real estate market in Hyderabad has been rising since 2014, but now this could change due to land scams.

During my campaign, he promised that, if elected, India would have a true friend in the White House. And now it’s exactly what you, a true friend. The friendship between the US And India is based on shared values, including our common commitment to democracy. Not many people know this, but the constitutions of the United States and India begin with the same three beautiful words: we the people.

The Prime Minister and I understand the crucial importance of these words, which helps form the basis of cooperation between our two countries. Relations between countries are stronger when they are dedicated to the interests of those we serve.

Narendra Modi and Trump pledge to destroy ‘radical Islamic terrorism’

Narendra Modi and Trump pledge to destroy ‘radical Islamic terrorism’

It was the first time the two leaders met.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump have pledged to destroy “radical Islamic terrorism” after their first meeting on Monday. It is also the first time Trump has organized a working dinner for a foreign dignitary at the White House.

At a joint briefing following their individual meeting and the White House delegation’s discussions, Modi said: “We have talked about terrorism, extremism and radicalization and have agreed to cooperate on this issue.” The leaders did not respond to media questions later.

Trump has described India as a “true friend” of the White House was “the economy is experiencing the fastest growth in the world.” He said: “We hope we will catch up with us very soon.” The President of the United States also praised Modi as Prime Minister. “You do a good job. Economically, India is doing very well.”

Modi said the United States is a “key partner” for the transformation of India and welcomed the “great leadership” Trump. He was also invited to visit India.

One day before their meeting, Trump spoke of Modi as his “true friend.” Minutes later, Modi nodded and thanked Trump for “warm personal welcome”.

Modi and Trump said their governments were “true partners” that would be to fight and work “to end terrorist sanctuaries.” In their joint statement, they said that destroying radical Islamic terrorism is one of the main objectives of the strategic partnership of their countries.

“Our two nations have been affected by the evils of terrorism and they are both determined to destroy terrorist organizations and the radical ideology that drives them,” Trump said. “We are going to destroy radical Islamic terrorism.”

During his first telephone conversation on January 24 Trump assured Modi continued support for the fight against terrorism. He emphasized that the United States sees India as “a true friend and partner to meet the challenges of the world.”

H-1B visa and immigration
The two leaders have distinguished commentary on H-1B visas and immigration issues, which keep thousands of Indian workers in the United States to the brim.

In April, Trump had signed an order – called “Buy American American Car” – to make changes to the H-1B visa policy used by companies to hire people from outside the United States for highly skilled jobs . The order proposes reforms to ensure that H-1B visas are awarded only to the most qualified or most paid candidate.

The Minister of Trade and Industry of the Union, Nirmala Sitharaman, dispelled fears and said that the number of H-1B visas for IT professionals in India would not be reduced. He added that the United States only wanted to correct the lottery process.

The H-1B visa allows US companies to employ workers from outside the country. Companies like Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro and others looking for a considerable number of H-1B visas to send Indian workers to the United States. It is expected that more than three lakh Indian engineers will be on H-1B visas in the US.

Trump said he wanted to create jobs in both countries. “I look forward to expanding our business relationship with equity to reduce the trade deficit,” Trump said. The Republican president reiterated his priorities for the strengthening of the economy of his country and to increase his opportunities of employment in the United States.

'Sixth extinction' of wildlife faster than feared

‘Sixth extinction’ of wildlife faster than feared

‘Sixth extinction’ of wildlife faster than feared

The sixth mass extinction of life on earth is occurring faster than scientists have warned fear.

More than 30% of animals with vertebral column – fish, birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals – decrease both in variety and population, according to the first comprehensive analysis of these trends.

“This is the case of a biological annihilation occurring all over the world,” said Stanford professor Rodolfo Dirzo, co-author of a study published Monday in the US journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) .

There are about a decade, experts fear that a further global deceleration of the species has been threatened.

Today, most agree that it is ongoing – but the new study suggests that the course is already stuck.

It provides the long-awaited data on the threat to wildlife, mapping of the lower areas and populations of 27,600 species. For 177 mammals, the researchers painted data for the period 1900-2015.

Mammals under supervision have lost a third of their original habitat, the researchers showed.

Forty percent of them – including rhinoceroses, orangutans, gorillas and many large cats – survive 20% or less of the land they have traveled before.

Biodiversity loss has accelerated recently.

“Several species of mammals were relatively safe there one or two decades are now in danger of extinction,” including the cheetahs, lions and giraffes, the study showed.

Globally, massive deaths – considered the sixth in the last five billion years – is the worst since three quarters of life on Earth, including non-avian dinosaurs were exterminated out there 66 millions of years ago by The impact of a giant meteorite.

Tropical regions experienced the highest number of declining species. In southern and southeastern Asia, large mammal species have lost more than four-fifths of their historical ranges.

While fewer species disappear in temperate zones, the percentage is as high or higher.

Up to half the number of animals that have shared our planet are no longer here, a loss that the authors describe as “a massive erosion of the greatest biological diversity in the history of the earth.”

There is no mystery as to why: our own species of growth – which has more than doubled in number from 1960 to 7400000000 – to eat, obstruct and pollute their planetary cohabitants of existence.

In comparison, there are less than 20,000 lions in the wild, less than 7,000 cheetahs, 500,000 giant pandas and approximately 250 Sumatran rhinos.

The main factors behind the decline of wildlife are habitat loss, over consumption, pollution, invasive species, disease and poaching in the case of tigers, elephants, rhinoceroses and other large animals. Its parts of the body.

It is expected that climate change to become a major threat in the coming decades, some animals – polar bears more – are already in decline due to rising temperatures and changing climatic conditions.

“The massive loss of populations and species reflects our lack of empathy for all wildlife species that have been our partners and our origins,” said lead author Gerardo Ceballos of the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

Beyond any moral imperative, there are practical reasons to disconcert the eclipse of animals, whether a megafauna or less charismatic creatures, the researchers warned.

The disappearance of a carnivore or a high herbivore level can have a cascade effect on the food chain, disrupting entire ecosystems.

Other species directly provide the “services” to humans, such as bees bee pollinating crops and birds that provide pest control.

Previous studies show that ecosystems subjected to stress, while lasting, have a breaking point – a rapid change can cause a collapse.

Reliance Jio's Rs 500 4G phone leak shows its design and reveals full specs

Reliance Jio’s Rs 500 4G phone leak shows its design and reveals full specs

Reliance Jio’s Rs 500 4G phone leak shows its design and reveals full specs

After changing space telecommunications with gifts and unlimited calling service, Jio is now ready to enter the telephony market.

A leaked report last week revealed that Jio is likely to launch a dedicated telephone Rs 500 at its annual general meeting (AGM) on July 21, but the company has not yet confirmed anything about it.

But before its release, Jio’s 4G phone photos were revealed. The images show the design details and the key information.

Two new reports – both TechPP and TelecomTalk – reveal almost every detail about the new phone with Jio.

And the two quotes look pretty similar. Both reports indicate that the new Jio feature will be released under the LYF brand.

The company has already launched several smartphones of the LYF brand, and is said to launch a phone with a feature that will be priced at 500 Rs.

The following Jio phone feature should be equipped with a 2.4-inch display, while the camera employs a dual language down keyboard.

In addition, the live images show that the device is equipped with a dedicated flashlight and next to which are the menu buttons and the back and call buttons. Everything is on the front of the unit.

On the back, the phone has a 2 megapixel camera is similar to the Nokia 3310 (2017).

The leak shows that Jio’s 4G VoLTE handset will come with 512MB of RAM along with 4GB of internal storage, which can be extendable up to 128GB via a microSD card.

There are no details about the processor inside the device. However, since it supports 4G, it is likely that it could use a Qualcomm processor input.

For example, this could be the Snapdragon 205 SoC, a Qualcomm processor made specifically for very cheap 4G mobile VoIP.

The phone features VoLTE 4G functionality will support SIM only Jio dependency, which clearly shows that this handset is designed to increase the subscriber base of Jio.

The company wants people to buy your phone, then use the Jio network. However, TelecomTalk also reports that the phone has features can be equipped with two SIM card slots. One of these slots accept a generic 2G SIM, while the other is for a 4G SIM card provided by Jio.

The main feature of the phone would be the device’s ability to run some applications such as Jio Jio TV, Jio Cine and others.

It is said that the device comes with a voice assistant. Live images indicate that Jio phone function can work on the KAI operating system, which is apparently a forked version of Firefox OS.

The phone has been seen with a dedicated application store called KAIOS plus, which probably indicates that the device can support applications like Facebook and WhatsApp.

Despite all that is revealed (probably) July 21 at present there are a number of reports that claim that the 4G phone will have Jio priced at Rs 500 or somewhere around it.

However, the specs and features we see also shows a phone that could be a bit more expensive.

There is no doubt that Jio subsidize the phone because its actual manufacturing cost can be around 1,500 Rs. In this context, we believe that the 4G Jio phone could have a price between Rs 500 and 1,000 Rs.
