File PhotoForeign minister AH Mahmood Ali on Wednesday said the international community is much closer to Bangladesh than ever before over the Rohingya crisis which, he claims, an outcome of its diplomacy, reports UNB.”We’re working and the results are visible,” he told a press conference at the foreign ministry.The minister said there is no reason to think that China and Russia are against Bangladesh or in favour of Myanmar, making it clear that these two countries are with Bangladesh.Mahmood Ali said all the countries supported the Kofi Annan Commission’s report which means all the countries are with Bangladesh.”It’s not so easy,” the foreign minister said indicating that the solution to the Rohingya crisis will not come overnight.”We’re working to find a peaceful solution. We’ve kept nothing left. If necessary, we’ll send special envoys (to specific countries),” he added.Explaining progress over the Rohingya issue, Mahmood Ali said there had been no open meeting at the UN Security Council (due to opposition from members) in the past. Now such meetings on the issue are being held. This is also a progress.”The foreign minister said he will go to Myanmar after the home minister’s visit.He mentioned that two MoUs will be signed during the home minister’s Myanmar visit. “We’ll be able to resolve border-related problems [as well]. “Over 590,000 Rohingyas have entered Bangladesh since 25 August amid relentless persecution in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.Foreign secretary M Shahidul Haque and senior officials of the ministry were present at the press briefing.last_img read more

Study suggests bigger brains in birds translates to less stress

first_img Citation: Study suggests bigger brains in birds translates to less stress (2013, September 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-09-bigger-brains-birds-stress.html Explore further In humans, when something causes stress, hormones known as glucocorticoids flood our system. Their purpose is to trigger the famous fight-or-flight response. Other animals have the same hormones in their systems, and thus, researchers can test the level of stress in them by noting their hormone levels. In this new effort, the researchers wondered if birds with proportionally bigger brains, experienced less stress due to being smarter than their cousins with proportionally smaller brains. They found data in 189 previous studies with birds that also included hormone level data. Using this information, the researchers compiled a database that allowed them to compare birds by relative brain size. They found that on average, the larger the brain relative to body size, the less the amount of stress hormone produced during similar circumstances, e.g. stress inducing situations.The researchers looked for changes in hormone levels due to a wide variety of stress inducing situations, as well as during different parts of the birds’ life cycle, e.g. during migration, brooding, etc. The results came back the same: birds with bigger brains relative to their body size, such as owls and crows, had lower amounts of stress hormones in their blood during stressful events than birds with smaller brains relative to body size. They noted that it wasn’t just a matter of big birds versus small birds—it was the relationship between the size of their brains and the size of their bodies that mattered.The researchers suggest that differences between birds have come about as an adaption to dealing with stress hormones—if any animal, including humans, lives with heightened levels of stress hormones in their bodies over extended periods of time, they tend to suffer for it and die younger. (Phys.org) —A team of researchers with members from the U.S. Hungary, France and Spain has found that birds that have proportionally bigger brains tend to experience less stress than those with proportionally smaller brains. In their paper published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the team describes how they studied data obtained from prior research efforts that captured stress hormone levels for 119 different species and found those birds with the largest brains relative to their body size, had the lowest levels of stress hormones in their blood during stressful events.

An interspecific relationship between brain size and corticosterone levels, Published 11 September 2013 DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2013.1734AbstractVertebrates respond to unpredictable noxious environmental stimuli by increasing secretion of glucocorticoids (CORT). Although this hormonal stress response is adaptive, high levels of CORT may induce significant costs if stressful situations are frequent. Thus, alternative coping mechanisms that help buffer individuals against environmental stressors may be selected for when the costs of CORT levels are elevated. By allowing individuals to identify, anticipate and cope with the stressful circumstances, cognition may enable stress-specific behavioural coping. Although there is evidence that behavioural responses allow animals to cope with stressful situations, it is unclear whether or not cognition reduces investment in the neuroendocrine stress response. Here, we report that in birds, species with larger brains relative to their body size show lower baseline and peak CORT levels than species with smaller brains. This relationship is consistent across life-history stages, and cannot be accounted for by differences in life history and geographical latitude. Because a large brain is a major feature of birds that base their lifetime in learning new things, our results support the hypothesis that enhanced cognition represents a general alternative to the neuroendocrine stress response.

Seven states have mooted their own broadband network model Prasad

first_imgSeven states have proposed to come up with their own model to roll out broadband network proposed under Rs 72,000 crore BharatNet prorgamme, Telecom Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said on Friday. “Seven states have offered to come up with state or SPV (special purpose vehicle) run model. Madhya Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh have already been talking about it,” Prasad said after meeting with state IT ministers and principal secretaries.  Also Read – I-T issues 17-point checklist to trace unaccounted DeMO cashRepresentatives from almost all states, except Delhi and some North Eastern states, were present in the meeting to discuss new model to roll out the broadband network. Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Himachal Pradesh and West Bengal said that they will develop their own model for broadband network rollout as some expressed displeasure over the work of central public sector companies involved in National Optical Fibre Network. “Keep this fact in mind that you are creating an integrated BharatNet so that there has to be certain standard. I will appeal you give your views soon on this,” Prasad said in the meeting. Haryana said that it is exploring possibility of state-led model for the project. Government has given option to roll out broadband network as per three models — current model operated by CPSUs, SPV or state run and private sector led model — to speed up broadband network reach in the country. At present National Optical Fiber Network (NOFN) project, which aims to connect 2.5 lakh village panchayats by 2016, is being operated by SPV Bharat Broadband Network Limited and project is being executed by CPSUs BSNL, RailTel and Powergrid.  Also Read – Lanka launches ambitious tourism programme to woo Indian tourists”If state government opts for state-led model, the existing NOFN architecture will migrate to new model,” Prasad said. Andhra Pradesh Advisor for e-governance and IT J Satyanarayana said the state government expects to roll out broadband in 30 to 36 month period and provide connection with download speed of 10 megabit per second for Rs 150 per month. Committee that has worked on design of BharatNet model in place of NOFN has estimated over three fold increase in project cost to Rs 72,778 crore from about Rs 20,000 crore approved earlier.  “Under BharatNet, broadband availability will be 99.9 per cent compared to about 96 per provisioned under NOFN. This means broadband service can be down only for 9 hours in a year compared to 350 hours under NOFN,” the Department of Telecom Joint Secretary V Umashankar said. The BharatNet project proposes broadband connectivity to households under village panchayats and even to government institutions at district level. “If we are able to create 100 users at each panchayat level, then it will enhance GDP by about Rs 66,500 crore,” Umashankar said.last_img read more

Indoor pollution more harmful Research

first_imgAs the world gets prepared to build smart cities, new research led by an Indian-origin scientist has highlighted the dangerous effects of indoor pollution on human health and has called for policies to ensure closer monitoring of air quality.According to Prashant Kumar from the University of Surrey, the research offers insight into “Sick Building Syndrome” and how new smart cities could help combat air quality issues.“When we think of the term “air pollution”, we tend to think of car exhausts or factory fumes expelling grey smoke. However, there are actually various sources of pollution that have a negative effect on air quality, many of which are found inside our homes and offices. From cooking residue to paints, varnishes and fungal spores the air we breathe indoors is often more polluted than that outside,” explained Kumar. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’In 2012, indoor air pollution was linked to 4.3 million deaths globally, compared with 3.7 million for outdoor air pollution. Urban dwellers typically spend 90 per cent of their time indoors and this has been linked to ‘Sick Building Syndrome’ where people exhibit a range of ill-health effects related to breathing indoor air.“It is essential that we are able to effectively monitor indoor air pollution so that we can better understand when and where levels are worst, and in turn offer solutions to make our air healthier,” added Kumar in the journal Science of the Total Environment. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with Netflix“Our work looks at the use of small, low-energy monitoring sensors that would be able to gather real-time data and tell families or workers when levels of pollutants are too high,” he continued.With this research, we are calling for greater importance to be placed on ensuring buildings are built with indoor pollution monitoring in mind. As we enter the age of smart cities this is one way in which technology will actively benefit health, the authors noted. A collaborative effort of European, Australian and British researchers led by the University of Surrey, the study assesses the harmful effects of indoor pollution in order to make recommendations on how best to monitor and negate these outcomes.In another paper published earlier in the journal Environmental Pollution, Kumar and PhD student Anju Goel also found that outdoor air pollution was at a high where buildings were located at traffic intersections.Even where there was low traffic volume, traffic intersections with densely built up surroundings showed twice the concentration than at open junctions.Exposure to these concentrations showed that ground floor dwellings in these areas were exposed to twice as many harmful particles. “This has important implications for town planning and we should consider whether we really want schools, offices or hospitals to be built within these environments,” Kumar noted.last_img read more
