According to a senior weather official, a low pressure trough formed over the North West Bay of Bengal has further accelerated monsoon activities in the state. The coastal districts like South 24-Parganas and East Midnapore will receive heavy to very heavy rainfall in the next 48 hours, as monsoon has become active due to the formation of two back-to-back low pressure troughs over Bay of Bengal. The districts like Purulia, Bankura, Birbhum, East Burdwan and West Burdwan, Jhargram and West Midnapore may also receive moderate to heavy rainfall in next two days, the weather official added. The Met office has once again issued an alert to the fishermen in the coastal districts urging them not to venture into the sea in next two days.

17 November 2010Fiji has ratified the United Nations treaty against the practice of doping in sports, bringing the number of State parties to the first legal instrument that imposes uniform rules, tests and sanctions against the scourge to 150. The International Convention Against Doping in Sport, which promotes no-advance-notice, out-of-competition and in-competition testing, was adopted unanimously by the General Conference of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in October 2005. The treaty is designed to ensure a consistent approach to anti-doping efforts and compel governments into action to restrict the supply of performance-enhancing substances and methods, curtail trafficking and regulate dietary and nutritional supplements. Since entering into force on 1 February 2007, the Convention has become one of UNESCO’s most rapidly implemented treaties. “The ratification of this Convention by so many countries in so short a time shows just how seriously the problem of doping in sport is taken by the world’s governments,” UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova said in a news release. The Paris-based agency is working with States to implement anti-doping education, policy and prevention programmes in support of the Convention. More than 30 countries, for example, have received financial assistance through UNESCO’s Fund for the Elimination of Doping in Sport. “While the Convention provides the roadmap, the Fund provides the means to achieve its principal objective” to promote the fight against doping so that future generations can enjoy and excel in doping-free sport,” said Ms. Bokova.
NEW YORK — Baseball players are concerned the Seattle Mariners have become yet another rebuilding team and may be joined by others following a season of steep attendance drops among clubs that faded early and never contended for the playoffs.Union head Tony Clark and new collective bargaining director Bruce Meyer said Wednesday their members also are concerned about rapid change in the way games are played, such as the increased use of relief pitchers, and are willing to speak with management this off-season about whether counteracting changes are needed.Altering the amateur draft to include an NBA-style lottery for the top picks, the 10-day disabled list and the 10-day minimum for the recall of players optioned to the minors are among the topics the union is prepared to talk about as part of a wider discussion. So are possible rules to counter offence-suffocating defensive shifts.And the union maintains its agreement is necessary for any changes in anti-gambling rules in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision that allows more widespread legal betting.But Seattle’s decision to trade Robinson Cano, James Paxton, Jean Segura and Edwin Diaz raised concern among players already angered by Baltimore, the Chicago White Sox, Cincinnati, Detroit, Kansas City, Miami and Pittsburgh jettisoning veterans.“We have seen some things that are eerily similar to last off-season,” Clark said. “One of the concerns in general has to do with the level of competition or interest in competition across the teams in general. … When you have teams who are as we’ve seen already moving considerable amounts of their roster and/or other teams who are talking about doing so, it raises concerns about how that’s going to affect the market.”Hours after Clark spoke, Arizona dealt All-Star first baseman Paul Goldschmidt to St. Louis for prospects, perhaps signalling an exodus of veterans from the desert.Players have taken to calling the process tanking, while management calls it the type of normal rebuilding that has been going on throughout Major League Baseball’s history. There were three 100-loss teams this year for the second time since 1985 and eight 95-loss teams for the first time in big league history.“There are teams that are effectively announcing at the beginning of the year that they’re not going to be competitive that year, and in some cases that they’re not going to field the best players that they have,” said Meyer, who spent two years in a similar role for the NHL Players Association before switching to baseball in September.MLB points to data showing 27 per cent of teams had 90 or more losses in each of the last three years, a figured that has fluctuated between 20 per cent and 33 per cent since 2000.“Last off-season, the union filed a grievance against four clubs that it claimed were not trying to win,” said MLB Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem, citing a case against Miami, Oakland, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay. “One of those clubs made the playoffs, another club won 90 games and a third club was in contention through the trade deadline. I don’t think the players’ association has any credibility on opining on how clubs will perform.”Attendance has gotten the attention of both sides. Toronto and Miami each had attendance drops of more than 800,000, Kansas City by over 500,000, and Baltimore, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Texas in excess of 400,000.Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred attributes part of the drop to unusual weather that led to 54 postponements, the most since 1989, and many more games played in cold. Players see lack of competitiveness as a bigger factor.“We have teams … talking about a three-, four-, five-, six-year plans,” Clark said. “We saw how that manifested itself last year and have concerns about how it’s going to manifest itself this year.”The union refused last off-season to agree to management’s proposal to install pitch clocks but did not block a new rule limiting mound visits that contributed to a 4 1/2-minute drop in the average time of a nine-inning game to 3 hours, 44 seconds. A wider discussion appears likely to take place this off-season.Players are concerned about the drop in offence. The big league batting average dropped to its lowest level since 1972 at .248, strikeouts topped hits for the first time and defensive shifts increased by another 30 per cent while innings and pitches per starting pitcher dropped again.“To this point, there truly hasn’t been a definitive position taken on the ‘shift/no shift’ issue from among the player group,” Clark said. “But players thus far have been willing to talk about it as part of a much broader conversation.”A lottery for the top draft picks could discourage some teams from rebuilding, which leads to losses, high selections that add top amateurs at relatively low prices and a path to success years later.“There are a lot of pieces to the conversation. I think the draft is one of them,” Clark said.Altering the disabled list or option recall rules could decrease the supply of fresh arms available to managers each game, which could start to reverse the increased use of relief pitchers. But players have benefited from the 10-day DL, which began in 2017; disabled players accrue major league service time along with their replacements, and that service time is needed to be eligible for salary arbitration and free agency.“There’s an acknowledgment that it may be a part of the conversation based on what we’ve seen certain teams do over the last couple of years,” Clark said. “It has lent itself to more players getting more major league service as a result of that movement.”Players also want to be part of the discussion of betting prohibitions. MGM Resorts International became MLB’s official gambling partner last week. MLB and club employees, including players, are prohibited from betting on baseball. MLB is considering updated policies that would prohibit them from causing bets to be made and from distributing confidential information that could impact betting, a person familiar with the discussions told The Associated Press last week. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the policies were not final.The union insists change to major league rules need its assent.“There’s a number of conversations that are going to need to be had,” Clark said.___More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsRonald Blum, The Associated Press
Prescribing knitting could save the NHS millions of pounds, a new report suggests, because it lowers blood pressure, reduces depression and slows the onset of dementia.The organisation Knit for Peace carried out a widespread literature review looking at the health benefits of the traditional craft after receiving testimonials from their 15,000 volunteers about how the hobby had improved their lives.They discovered that knitting is as relaxing as yoga, distracts from chronic pain, such as arthritis, boosts wellbeing, brings down blood pressure and keeps the mind sharp.It also reduces loneliness and isolation and allows older people to feel as if they are still useful to society.In Britain, the NHS spends more than £2 billion each year on blood pressure treatments, and around £300 million on antidepressants. Dementia costs the country £26 billion while the health service spends billions annually tackling chronic pain.So prescribing knitting could be a cheap way to battle a host of age-related conditions, the report concludes.“Research has shown there is a growing crisis in primary care and with GP services in particular. Now is the time to adopt more imaginative and innovative approaches,” the authors write.“As a skilled and creative occupation, knitting has a therapeutic potential. There is an enormous amount of research showing that knitting has physical and mental health benefits.” Knitting can help people battle chronic pain, depression and social isolationCredit:Sergei Bobylev TASS The new review found that knitting lowers heart rate by an average 11 beats per minute and induces ‘an enhanced state of calm’ and even the same state of ‘flow’ experienced by athletes when they are ‘in the zone’ which causes a drop in stress hormones and blood pressure. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. The scheme quickly spread to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Afghanistan and soon British knitters asked if they could donate their own work to refugees.Dame Hilary Blume, founder and director of the Charities Advisory Trust and Knit for Peace, said: “Knitters started coming to me asking if they could send clothing to Afghanistan. ‘We’re sending them soldiers, so why not warm jumpers?’ they said.“Our premise always is if someone wants to help we try and facilitate that. I was expecting about three baby hats in a Jiffy bag but suddenly we had this tsunami of knitting.“We get around 40 parcels a day, and if we didn’t send things out every single day, we wouldn’t have room to move.“People are incredibly generous. If I had knitted an incredibly complex Fair Isle sweater, I would want to frame it, but people send them to us.“And people would often include notes saying how knitting improved their lives, and how it made them still feel useful, so we decided to carry out a review to see what the evidence was.” It also helps chronic pain by switching off alarm signals in the brain, because the focus is turned elsewhere. Repetitive movement also boosts calming serotonin which lifts mood and dulls pain.A study of over 70s by the Mayo Clinic in the US , found that knitting was associated with decreased odds of experiencing mild-cognitive impairment, which increases the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.The process of creating an object also boosts the reward centres of the brain and can help lower depression. And many former smokers have used knitting as a way to control their cravings to reach for cigarettes, by keeping their hands busy with the needles.“We found a surprisingly large body of research showing the health benefits of knitting. What is more surprising is how little known the research is,” added Dame Hilary.“Knitting is often dismissed or derided as old-fashioned but it should be promoted because of its health-giving qualities.“Every GP appointment costs around £45 but we believe knitting could help prevent people needing to visit the doctor so much, and help them feel happier, less isolated, and more healthy.”The report also calls for knitting to be taught in schools. Knit for Peace was founded by the Charities Advisory Trust originally as an income generating projected for Hutu and Tutsi widows who had been the victims of the Rwandan genocide and civil war. Through the Good Gifts catalogue people could pay for the women to knit jumpers for orphans.
A 6-year-old boy is suspected to have drowned in front of his school at Abrams Creek, Upper Pomeroon on Tuesday morning at about 11:45hrs.Dead is Ramesh Khan, a grade one student of Abrams Creek Primary School and of Abrams Creek, Upper Pomeroon river.According to information received, Khan’s school is located on the right bank of the Pomeroon River. In front of the educational facility, about four feet away, is the entrance attached to a well fenced compound.INews was told that a short distance away from the entrance gate is a “wooden landing” which leads to the Pomeroon river, about 40 feet away.This online publication was informed by investigators that according to a grade two student, she and Khan were playing during lunch hours. A short while later, the 6-year-old lad reportedly told his playmate that he was going to wash his feet in the river.The grade two student said that after a while, and Khan had not returned, she decided to look around for him and it was then that she saw her friend almost submerged in the river with his two hands up in the air, beckoning for “help”.She recalled screaming for her teachers, who were in the upper flat of the school having lunch.Three teachers reportedly ran to the wooden landing, but Khan was no where to be seen.As such, a search party gathered and two divers reportedly spent hours under the water looking for the 6-year-old’s body.However, he was not found.Police say the teachers were all interrogated and their stories proved to be consistent.Investigations are ongoing.

Fibroscopie bronchique : définition, fonctionnement et risques de cet examen des bronchesLa fibroscopie bronchique est un examen médical qui consiste à explorer la trachée et les bronches. Réalisée à l’aide d’un fibroscope, elle permet de confirmer un diagnostic et de réaliser des prélèvements.Qu’est-ce qu’une fibroscopie bronchique, et quand est-elle indiquée ?La fibroscopie est une technique non invasive qui permet d’explorer les voies naturelles et les organes internes. Elle est surtout employée pour étudier l’appareil digestif, l’appareil urinaire ou les voies respiratoires. La fibroscopie bronchique a pour objectif l’exploration de la trachée et des bronches. Elle peut être réalisée à des fins diagnostiques pour détecter des anomalies. Elle sert par exemple à localiser l’emplacement et à déterminer la nature d’une tumeur en cas de suspicion de cancer du poumon. Cet examen permet également de rechercher une accumulation de mucus, un corps étranger, une inflammation ou une infection au niveau des bronches. Il précède les lavages broncho-alvéolaires réalisés pour diagnostiquer ou suivre l’évolution d’une fibrose pulmonaire ou d’une sarcoïdose. Enfin, on a recours à une fibroscopie bronchique avant de réaliser des prélèvements (biopsie) en cas de tumeur ou d’infection.Comment se déroule une fibroscopie bronchique ?La fibroscopie bronchique est réalisée sous anesthésie locale par un pneumologue. Généralement, l’intervention dure entre 10 et 20 minutes. Le pneumologue applique un gel dans la gorge du patient afin de faciliter le passage du fibroscope, un petit tube cylindrique muni d’une mini-caméra et d’une source de lumière (fibres optiques). Le fibroscope est introduit par une narine, traverse la trachée, et parvient jusqu’aux bronches. Le pneumologue peut suivre le parcours du fibroscope, et visualiser l’intérieur de la trachée et des bronches en observant les images qui apparaissent sur un écran d’ordinateur. L’exploration est parfois suivie d’un lavage, d’un brossage bronchique ou d’une biopsie (prélèvements). À lire aussiFibroscopie : bronchique, pulmonaire, digestive, comment se déroule l’examen ?En cas de biopsie, les échantillons prélevés sont ensuite envoyés en laboratoire, et analysés au microscope. Si des cellules cancéreuses sont détectées, des examens complémentaires doivent être réalisés (IRM, scanner).Quels sont les risques et complications de la fibroscopie bronchique ?Cet examen n’est pas considéré comme dangereux, et est généralement indolore. Le patient peut ressentir une sensation désagréable en sentant le fibroscope pénétrer dans l’organisme. Le gel anesthésique appliqué pour endormir la gorge peut faire avaler de travers. Pour cette raison, il est recommandé d’attendre au moins deux heures avant d’ingérer des aliments. La fibroscopie bronchique peut entrainer un saignement et d’autres symptômes légers dans les heures qui suivent l’intervention (fièvre, douleur, ballonnements).Le 6 avril 2017 à 16:27 • Maxime Lambert
Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharam in her maiden budget speech pondered the miniscule number of 3.7 crore income tax payers in India, a nation of 132 crore people figuring just below China in terms of the world’s most populous country.Ironic but the tax payers’ size at 3.7 crore is nowhere near the number of voters registered in our country at 82 crore, indicating the strong political narrative undermining the plea of economists and accountants to make it broad-based and more compliant. Currently, 3.3 percent of Indian population is filing Income Tax returns (ITR), which is far less compared to 8 percent in China. In her buget speech, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman, like many of her predecessors, reiterated the wider belief that ours is essentially a ‘non-compliant’ society in terms of payment of taxes. But the truth is that ours is hugely a ‘subsidised’ nation where agriculturists, forming the biggest chunk at 75 percent of the population, are availing the tax exemption citing the agricultural income.In sheer numbers, these agriculturists constitute a whopping 61.5 crore and many of them buy cars, bungalows and any luxury item like other tax payers in India. Next comes the other segment of people who really fall ‘Below the Poverty Line’ and they constitute 24 percent of the population or 20.5 crore, whose exclusion is never questioned in a developing country like ours.Finally, the tax authorities are left with 15 crore population, who come under non-agricultural or non-BPL category. But not all of them are paying taxes as other exclusions such as Senior Citizens, non-working housewives, unemployed youth, and below taxable income earners come into play.The typical Indian family has one bread winner and five to six dependants, whether children or aged parents or a housewife. With the middle-class values still persisting through the average Indian family, we cannot reverse the situation overnight and the Indian chartered accountant organisations have put this figure at 11.5 crore. Hence, our income tax payers’ base remained still at just 3.75 crore, as it is now.As the past experiments such as demonetisation and rampant scrutiny and IT raids evinced little progress in widening the tax net, the next best alternative is to widen the tax net, bringing the agriculturists into it gradually. Since, doubling the number of tax payers never doubles the tax revenue, selective inclusion and exclusion policy is the need of the hour.In fact, many people, citing the agricultural income, evade the income tax, while those paying higher tax regularly face the prospect of further taxation in every budget. Even a token amount of tax on rich farmers by amending the exemption clause under Section 10 (1) of the Income Tax Act of India will bring 26 percent of this segment into the direct tax net.The choice for the Finance Minister is either to widen the Income Tax net or abolish it entirely, since indirect tax, say GST, in already in place. In fact, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had pitched this idea during the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. If feasible, this could save many pockets. Other tax avenues such as inheritance tax can also be explored, instead of repetitive taxation slabs at the higher end.

They cut ties with Horton entirely on Friday when the Arians move became official.Horton’s departure may have come as a bit of a surprise after he helped build one of the elite defenses in the league. Bidwill said it is tough for the team to lose Horton, but the decision was one the new regime was able to make together.“I think it was a very important issue and [Horton]’s a great coach and we all love him and consider him a friend and appreciate his contributions to the team so that was a hard one to sort of work through,” Bidwill said. “It was great way to see how are we going to work together and let’s talk this out and let’s make a Cardinal decision.”The Cardinals have made a decision to move forward and not look back, and Bidwill is excited for the journey. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Comments Share Bidwill said he felt good about Arians on Wednesday night when team officials met him for dinner upon his arrival in the Valley. But it was Thursday’s interview that solidified to him the Cardinals had found their next head coach.“I am looking for a leader. I am looking for a guy who’s going to bring accountability and performance,” Bidwill stated. “Clearly he’s a leader. You see the accountability with something he was talking about right from the very beginning and the guys had performance. He’s made good players great. He’s made great players better. He’s taken a very young raw team that had some real challenges in Indianapolis and got them into the playoffs.”Bidwill praised the group of candidates the team was able to interview but said what stood out in his mind about Arians was that he wasn’t trying to make the jump from coordinator to head coach, he had already done it successfully.“When you look at the importance of the decision to elevate a guy and promote him to head coach, he had already checked that box he did it last year,” Bidwill explained. “Many organizations have already said he was the Coach of the Year last year. He is a real leader.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling LISTEN: President of the Cardinals Michael Bidwill Arizona Cardinals president Michael Bidwill is energized about his team’s future and couldn’t be more pleased with its new head coach’s credentials.“The choice really came down to who was going to be the best fit, who was going to be the person that we felt like was going to bring us sustainable winning and to build the program and get a turnaround quickly,” Bidwill told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Friday.
