A woman in Andhra Pradesh made news recently for becoming the world’s oldest mother at 74 years of age. However, in a tragic turn of events, she suffered a stroke shortly after going into labour and now, her husband later suffered a heart attack as well. 

Erramatti Mangayamma and her 82-year-old husband Sitarama Raja Rao are both currently in the intensive care unit.

On 5 September, Mangayamma successfully delivered twin girls via IVF making them what they described as “the happiest couple on Earth.”

In an earlier article on FIT, we spoke to medical experts who warned about the health consequences of such a late delivery.

यह गर्व की बात हैं कि  हिंदी  हमारी राजभाषा अौेर मातृभाषा एक वैज्ञानिक भाषा है. इसकी विशेषताएं हैं –
1. जो लिखते हैं ,वही पढ़ते हैं और वही बोलते हैं.
2.  उच्चारण सही हो, तब सुन कर लिख सकते हैं.
3. वाक्य सम्बोधन  बड़े या छोटे के लिये अलग अलग होते हैं. जैसे आप ,तुम.
4. वाक्य शुरू करनेवाले  विशेष अक्षर ( capital ) नहीँ  होते.
  वैज्ञानिक कारण
 अक्षरों का वर्गीकरण, बोली  और उच्चारण के अनुसार हैं. “क” वर्ग  कंठव्य कहे जाता हैं , क्योंकि इसका कंठ या गले से हम उच्चारण करते हैं.बोलने के समय जीभ गले के ऊपरी भाग को छूता हैं. बोल कर इसे  समझा जा सकता हैं.
क वर्ग
क, ख, ग, घ, ङ.
इसी तरह “च ” वर्ग के सब अक्षर तालव्य कहलाते हैं.इन्हें बोलने के  समय जीभ तालू  को छूती है ।

हिंदी की जननी संस्कृत ने इसे विशेषताओं से भर दिया है । वाक्य के शब्दों को आगे पीछे करो, फिर भी अर्थ वही होता है । अर्थ वही होता है शब्दों को आगे पीछे करो । ना कैपिटल लेटर्स के झमेले ना स्माल लेटर की, ना एक्सेंट या ऊच्चारण सिखने की। ऐसी वैज्ञानिकता है हिंदी भाषा में।

 

Floating ‘raft’ of pumice rock the size of Birmingham spotted in Pacific अद्भुत नजारा -150 वर्ग किलोमीटर से अधिक बड़े तैरते प्युमिक पत्थर

रामायण में वर्णित लकां तक पहुँचने के तैरते पुल की याद दिला रहा है, प्रशांत महासागर में तैरते विशालकाय प्युमिक चट्टानों का अद्भुत नजारा।

प्रशांत महासागर में बर्मिंघम के आकार के प्युमिक रॉक देखा गया है। यह 150 वर्ग किलोमीटर से अधिक बड़ी है। यह एक पानी के नीचे ज्वालामुखी के कारण बना है, जो टोंगा के पास फट गई थी।

विशेषज्ञों का मानना ​​है कि ये चट्टानें जिनमें से कुछ बास्केटबॉल के आकार की हैं,सात से 10 महीनों में ऑस्ट्रेलियाई तट तक पहुंच जाएंगी, जहां वे नष्ट हो रहे ग्रेट बैरियर रीफ को फिर से भर सकते हैं।
Although the pumice (pictured from space) is currently bare, organisms such as crabs and corals, will start growing on it in the coming weeks: NASA

 

A ‘raft’ of pumice rock the size of Birmingham has been spotted in the Pacific ocean. The floating sheet is more than 150 square kilometres large and was caused by an underwater volcano which erupted near Tonga. 

Experts believe that the rocks – some of which are the size of basketballs – will reach the Australian coast in seven to 10 months where they could replenish the Great Barrier Reef, which is being destroyed by coral bleaching. Michael and Larissa Hoult, who are crew of the Australian adventure catamaran ROAM, found themselves sailing through the mass of rocks earlier this month while on their way to Fiji.

Organic Food’s Health Benefits Have Been Hard To Assess. But That Could Change

Experts in academia, providing fact-based analysis of issues for the public

By Cynthia Curl

Organic” is more than just a passing fad. Organic food sales totaled a record US$45.2 billion in 2017, making it one of the fastest-growing segments of American agriculture. While a small number of studies have shown associations between organic food consumption and decreased incidence of disease, no studies to date have been designed to answer the question of whether organic food consumption causes an improvement in health

I’m an environmental health scientist who has spent over 20 years studying pesticide exposures in human populations. Last month, my research group published a small study that I believe suggests a path forward to answering the question of whether eating organic food actually improves health.

What we don’t know

According to the USDA, the organic label does not imply anything about health. In 2015, Miles McEvoy, then chief of the National Organic Program for USDA, refused to speculate about any health benefits of organic food, saying the question wasn’t “relevant” to the National Organic Program. Instead, the USDA’s definition of organic is intended to indicate production methods that “foster cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.”

While some organic consumers may base their purchasing decisions on factors like resource cycling and biodiversity, most report choosing organic because they think it’s healthier.

Sixteen years ago, I was part of the first study to look at the potential for an organic diet to reduce pesticide exposure. This study focused on a group of pesticides called organophosphates, which have consistently been associated with negative effects on children’s brain development. We found that children who ate conventional diets had nine times higher exposure to these pesticides than children who ate organic diets.

Our study got a lot of attention. But while our results were novel, they didn’t answer the big question. As I told The New York Times in 2003, “People want to know, what does this really mean in terms of the safety of my kid? But we don’t know. Nobody does.” Maybe not my most elegant quote, but it was true then, and it’s still true now.

Studies only hint at potential health benefits

Still, scientists can’t directly translate these lower exposures to meaningful conclusions about health. The dose makes the poison, and organic diet intervention studies to date have not looked at health outcomes. The same is true for the other purported benefits of organic food. Organic milk has higher levels of healthy omega fatty acids and organic crops have higher antioxidant activity than conventional crops. But are these differences substantial enough to meaningfully impact health? We don’t know. Nobody does.

Since 2003, several researchers have looked at whether a short-term switch from a conventional to an organic diet affects pes

Since 2003, several researchers have looked at whether a short-term switch from a conventional to an organic diet affects pesticide exposure. These studies have lasted one to two weeks and have repeatedly shown that “going organic” can quickly lead to dramatic reductions in exposure to several different classes of pesticides. 

Some epidemiologic research has been directed at this question. Epidemiology is the study of the causes of health and disease in human populations, as opposed to in specific people. Most epidemiologic studies are observational, meaning that researchers look at a group of people with a certain characteristic or behavior, and compare their health to that of a group without that characteristic or behavior. In the case of organic food, that means comparing the health of people who choose to eat organic to those who do not.

Several observational studies have shown that people who eat organic food are healthier than those who eat conventional diets. A recent French study followed 70,000 adults for five years and found that those who frequently ate organic developed 25% fewer cancers than those who never ate organic. Other observational studies have shown organic food consumption to be associated with lower risk of diabetes, metabolic syndrome, pre-eclampsia and genital birth defects.

Spiritual Poets Tulsidas & Rahim – a weaver & a worrier

Tulsidas came to know about a unique behaviour of Rahim. While giving alms to the poor, Rahim gave with extreme humility. While giving, he kept his gaze downwards towards the earth.  He never looked at the person he was giving alms to. Tulsidas promptly wrote the following couplet and sent it to Rahim.

“ऐसी देनी देंनज्यूँ, कित सीखे हो सैन 

जयोंज्यों कर ऊंच्यो करो, त्योंत्यों निचे नैन” 

Meaning – “O great person, where have you learnt this amazing way of giving? As your hands rise (to give), your eyes look down”
Completing the couplet which Tulsidas wrote, Rahim replied in extreme humility. 

His reply shows how evolved Rahim was as a soul.

“देनहार कोई और है, भेजत जो दिन रैन

 लोग भरम हम पर करे, तासो निचे नैन”


Meaning- “The Giver is someone else (the God almighty), giving day and night.
The world has a misconception that I am the giver. So, I lower my eyes in embarrassment.”

Tulsidas 1532–1623, also known as Goswami Tulsidas, was a HinduVaishnava saint and poet, renowned for his devotion to the deity Rama. Tulsidas wrote several popular works in Sanskrit and Awadhi; he is best known as the author of the epic Ramcharitmanas, a retelling of the SanskritRamayana based on Rama‘s life in the vernacular Awadhi dialect of Hindi.

KhanzadaMirzaKhanAbdul Rahim Khan-e-Khana (17 December 1556 – 1627) also known as Rahim was a poet who lived during the rule of Mughal emperor Akbar. He was one of the nine important ministers (dewan) in his court, also known as the Navaratnas. Rahim is known for his Hindi dohe (couplets) and his books on astrology. The village of Khan Khana, which is named after him, is located in the Nawanshahr district of the state of Punjab, India

Sea Sparkles Seen At Chennai Beaches, But It May Not Be Good News

The phenomenon was very rare. The ‘magical glow’ is caused by a high concentration of a micro-plankton called Noctiluca scintillans in the sea.

While the sparkle is similar to the fireflies’ glow, the micro-plankton itself cannot be seen by the naked eye as it’s a micro-organism.

The demonstrators, backed and encouraged by the Government of Pakistan to amass and protest outside the Indian High Commission, had gathered on 15 August which marked the day of India’s Independence. Pakistan had celebrated the occasion as a ‘Black Day’ in an attempt to internationalise the recent developments in the Indian territory of Jammu and Kashmir.
