it has garnered hundreds of signatures Another group of scientists supporting the experiments—they call themselves Scientists for Science—defended the studies as safe but also called for a meeting to discuss the issues That discussion will now happen although today’s announcement took many scientists involved in the issue by surprise Harvard University epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch who co-organized the Cambridge Working Group statement and personally supports a moratorium on GOF flu studies says he is “very pleased” with the announcement “I think the deliberative process is exactly what we and also Scientists for Science have called for” Lipsitch says Boston University microbiologist Paul Duprex a leader of Scientists for Science says that although he is “not a fan of blanket bans” there is “precedent” for a pause He looks forward to “the presentation of hard evidence and the discussion of the data” Both Lipsitch and Duprex are speaking before NSABB next week Also speaking at the meeting will be Michael Osterholm a former NSABB member and head of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities He opposed publication of the earlier H5N1 studies and has long argued that researchers have not undertaken rigorous risk-benefit analyses “I think it’s a great time to dive into the risk-benefit question” he told ScienceInsider today “You’ll never [be able to] fine-tune the calculation down to 1% but you can reach some reasonable approximation—and do much better than we are doing now” “This is major” says Peter Hale of the Foundation for Vaccine Research in Washington DC, Shirish Desai.

the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express AppWritten by Ruchira Talapatra | New Delhi | Updated: May 29 2017 1:11 pm Badal Sircar’s play Pagla Ghoda set in the 1960s has been loyally adapted for the Internet audience by Bikas Mishra Related News At a time when we’re starstruck by the hero that is Amarendra and Mahendra Baahubali or the women that are Sivagami Devasena and Avanthika watching Badal Sircar’s famous play Pagla Ghoda can send shivers down your spine Though many may raise a puzzled eyebrow at the connection those who have seen (and possibly studied) both would identify a disturbing common thread between Sircar’s 1960s to what we see in magnum opus movies such as Baahubali today – one of subtle patriarchy the kind that sometimes one doesn’t even realise exists Sircar’s original play is set in the 1960s which is loyally adapted for the Internet audience by Bikash Mishra mostly known for his indie film Chauranga The film is about four men sitting in a crematorium drinking burning a woman on the pyre and conversing about life love and what is lost As simple as it may sound the conversations are poignant All four men have lost the love of their lives and are in immense remorse especially thinking about the moments shared with the lost lover But as the conversation between them develops you start feeling disgust hate or even pity for them For instance take the story of Shashi He claims he loved Malti Scene: In a dingy place amidst four acquaintances he is dwelling in a memory of her who he and his friend Pradeep both loved Malti to Shashi: Why did you profess your love to me Malti: You will leave me for Pradeep He means the world to you Malti: Are you doing this because you won’t be able to show your face to Pradeep Shashi: I will not be able to show my face to myself I will dwell in this weakness and I won’t be able to face anyone In such a situation neither you will be happy nor me Malti loses Shashi and marries Pradeep She later commits suicide because he turns out to be a wife beater and an alcoholic who could never establish a connection with her Shashi in the present still blames himself for leaving her The script is simple the writer tells you that patriarchy is what we all are afraid of it can manifest itself in you and haunt you for years An extreme case like Pradeep – a wife beater But Shashi who is righteous is also overpowering the one he loves He believes that brotherhood is more important than commitment and a woman he loves And most importantly what has Shashi’s life become after some years drowning in guilt Mishra says “Is hate the only feeling for this man Do you feel pity for him” According to him pity is difficult because we are used to seeing heroic men in movies The most popular movie cannot have losers and that too four of them like in Pagla Ghoda In Sircar’s play men are also victims of patriarchy At one level it is a tragedy a grand romantic tragedy about four very ordinary men who fall in love with four assertive women But the characters are more grey and hence more likely to be encountered on daily basis than finding heroes “At a time when the leader of the country is happy with reference to the size of his chest (referring to PM Narendra Modi’s ‘chhappan inch ka seena’) and Baahubali is loved for his masculinity it is definitely not time to say that patriarchy is not a problem” says Mishra indicating that women today – much like the four characters in Sircar’s play – may be assertive with a mind of their own but in the end they’re subtly subjugated by men they care or those who are around them mainly because we’re conditioned to have the man lead Baahubali a fantasy character is so loved that the SS Rajamouli’s film is breaking every record and Amarendra Baahubali becomes the ‘ideal man’ even for the 21st century woman There is no denying the strong female characters in Baahubali 1 and 2 but then both Avantika and Devasena are eventually reduced to characters who need saving or controlling be it by Amarendra and Mahendra Baahubali much like how the women in Sircar’s play are manipulated by the men in their lives however unconsciously and subtly so It’s perfectly acceptable for the man to use his fighting skills to strip off the woman’s clothes to woo her in Baahubali 1 and though 2 has Devasena as a warrior she too must wait and be saved by the son The depiction of patriarchy in Pagla Ghoda is disturbing because it’s relatable Every character has a question in every dialogue The mental and physical trauma of the manifestation of the ghost of patriarchy grasps you You laugh at the characters’ audacity but you cannot refute them Pagla Ghoda is part of a new series of cine-plays streaming on Hotstar and will be

to become obese when they hit puberty (Source: Thinkstock Images) Top News When young teenagers reach puberty both girls and boys tend to experience a rapid drop in the number of calories that they burn finds a new study The research that also explains the dramatic rise in childhood obesity in puberty found that 15-year-olds use 400 to 500 fewer calories while at rest per day compared to when they were 10-years-old — a fall of around a quarter This was particularly surprising as it is a period of rapid growth and growth uses lots of calories the researchers said However by the age of 16 their calorie expenditure begins to climb once again In addition the study also found that teenagers exercise less during puberty adding to the calorie excess that underlies obesity This exercise drop is particularly stark in girls whose activity level drops by around a third between the ages of seven and 16 “When we looked for an explanation for the rising obesity in adolescence we were surprised to find a dramatic and unexpected drop in the number of calories burned while at rest during puberty” said Terry Wilkin Professor at the University of Exeter in Britain Childhood obesity is one of the most serious global public health challenges for the 21st century according to the World Health Organization (WHO) “Child obesity and associated diabetes are both among the greatest health challenges of our time Our findings can explain why puberty why teenagers gain excess weight in puberty and it could help target strategies accordingly” Wilkin added in the paper published The International Journal of Obesity During the 12-year-long study between 2000 and 2012 the research team analysed data gathered from nearly 350 school children in Britain The children were assessed every six months between the ages of five and 16 during which blood samples were given to assess metabolic health and measurements of size body composition metabolic rate and physical activity taken Of this set 279
