Lack of awareness a major reason for late diagnosis of lupus

Hyderabad: Although the number of patients with lupus in the city is slowly increasing, it takes an average of three years to diagnose the deadly disease.
The delay in diagnosis is due to lack of awareness of this rare autoimmune disease, experts speaking at a continuing education session for a day at the organized lupus at KIMS Hospital said city.
“Systemic lupus erythematosus” – commonly known as Lupus affects 1 in 1000 so it is a rare disease that mainly affects women. Nine of the 10 patients with lupus are women 15 to 45 years of age. The deadly disease has a varied presentation among patients of very frequent symptoms, such as a butterfly-marked rash when exposed to sunlight, excessive fatigue, hair loss, severe manifestations such as paralysis, heart attack, Recurrent abortions when it affects organs.
The fact that there is very little lupus even in medical books makes diagnosis difficult. “There is no awareness of lupus disease not only among the general population but also among those in the medical community. As it is not included in course textbooks, teachers are physicians unable to identify the signs. If lupus is not diagnosed in time, it can prove to be life-threatening. Because patients have multiorgan involvement, they consult with respective specialists in accordance with the leading system organ affected to an inadequate diagnosis, “said Dr Sharat V Chandramouli, director of clinical, rheumatology and clinical immunology, KIMS hospital.

India cricket team will not play a bilateral series with Pakistan: Sports minister Vijay Goel

India cricket team will not play a bilateral series with Pakistan: Sports minister Vijay Goel

Sports Minister Vijay Goel ruled out a series of bilateral cricket between India and Pakistan. Speaking to reporters in New Delhi on Monday, the minister said that “cricket and terrorism can not go together.”

India and Pakistan, however, will compete in the ICC Champions Trophy in the UK next month. Both teams are in the same group and face Edgbaston, Birmingham, on 4 June.

Cricket Council of India Council and officials of Pakistan Cricket Council will meet today in Dubai to discuss a bilateral series, but the message to Goel BCCI is very clear.

According to the ICC Future Tours Program, India’s cricket team must play Pakistan in a two-way series later this year, but hostilities on the other side of the border may lose all chances of a series of cricket Of India vs Paklistan.

BCCI and PCB have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to join six bilateral series between 2015 and 2023. Earlier this month, the PCB had sent a notice of the dispute to the Board of India requesting BCCI losses for refusing To be delivered in 2015.

At the meeting in Dubai, BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary will represent BCCI while PCB should be represented by its chairman Shaharyar Khan and his legal representatives.
BCCI Impotente

“We remain committed to the game, but the work does not change: the show can not go forward without the permission of the Government of India.

“After the writing of PCB, we wrote to the Government of India and waiting for the answer. I think the dialogue should continue, so we are,” Choudhary said.

The comments by the Sports Minister today clearly show that bilateral cricket is unlikely in the near future, even in neutral territory.

The last bilateral series between India and Pakistan was played in 2012-2013. It was a limited edition with two and three T20I ODI India. The T20 series was developed and Pakistan won the ODI 2-1.

Modi’s Europe tour: Will India’s FTA pragmatism bring EU out of its shell?

Modi's Europe tour: Will India's FTA pragmatism bring EU out of its shell?

Modi’s Europe tour: Will India’s FTA pragmatism bring EU out of its shell?

The wider trade and FTAs in particular are playing an increasingly important role in India’s diplomatic scene at a time when its benefits are being questioned in several capitals. Modi’s prime minister has shown a strong inclination to take advantage of the foreign sector to national economic growth.

It is therefore not surprising that even before reports in the negotiations on the CJPE (Regional Economic Partnership) has left the negotiations on the free trade agreement between India and the European Union (EU) began to appear. The problem is simple. The EU can really get out of its shell and move to an agreement. The context is provided by Brexit, prompting the UK to promote a trade agreement with independent India along with a contest for the EU and the victory of Mr Macron as president in France which would damage the island lobby in the EU.
It is these events that awaken the enthusiasm of an agreement when Prime Minister Modi leaves for a visit to Europe. Would there be significant progress in a free trade agreement with the EU? The six-day tour will begin May 29 with PM Modi traveling to Berlin, where he will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Special attention should be paid. The expectations of the FTA negotiations between India and the EU were high, even in the last trip of the PM in Brussels; Minister of Trade and Industry Ms Nirmala Sitharaman is also part of the delegation, but her counterpart did not attend the summit. In fact, later, the Minister tweeted. “In India We hope this discussion is resumed We wanted to resume as soon as possible, we want a conference.

As mentioned above, the environment has changed this time. European political leadership seems to be very open to the idea of a free trade agreement with India. The recent visit of Ms. Sitharaman Italy and an earlier visit by a delegation of Germany indications of political commitment. Given how other EU associations with the rest of the world were not too pronounced for the continent, there is a good indication that it would like to have deeper cooperation with India. But of course, there are concerns? Some of them are concerned about the EU as to whether wider integration with India would help their economies with the best of them grew by only 1.9%. The EU is concerned that currencies are so volatile, especially the euro? These are difficult questions, they make more significant because their bilateral trade with India has grown impressively. From US $ 55 billion in 2006 to US $ 96 billion in 2016. In these circumstances, we can examine the two specific areas of the FTA-eliminating stock.
Financial Services and Investments
The first is the proposed EU-India bilateral trade and investment agreement (BTIA). Since 2015, India has developed a new model in the BTIA, which includes a strong provision for fiscal risks in accordance with the laws of India. The new NAFTA negotiations must take these provisions into account for BTIA.

A related problem is banking, where conflicting positions have emerged. The EU has insisted that FDI liberalization is higher in retail and multi-brand insurance. However, even if the EU calls for the liberalization of India’s banking and financial sector and the opening of FDI in multi-brand retail trade, India has been bothered by the increased demand for market access mode 1 and Mode-4 (ie the movement of labor and people). None of them has made much progress so far.

Pakistan terror groups pose threat to our interests in India, Afghanistan: US spy chiefs

Pakistan terror groups pose threat to our interests in India, Afghanistan: US spy chiefs

NEW DELHI: The US intelligence community is said to have informed Congress that Pakistan has failed to stop terrorist activities operating from its territory, a Pakistan-based daily Dawn reported.
“… and because of their failure, these (terrorist) groups (continue) will present a continuing threat to US interests in the region and will continue to plan and carry out attacks in India and Afghanistan,” said the report citing Intelligence of the United States.
“During a congressional hearing on Afghanistan and ongoing war against terrorist elements, intelligence chiefs would have given an honest assessment of the situation in Afghanistan to the war-torn Committee of the Senate,” the paper said.
A transcript published this weekend shows that while much of the debate has focused on Pakistan, we express concern that, despite a greater military effort to defeat the Taliban, militants will continue to make gains, especially in areas Rural areas of Afghanistan.
“The performance of the Afghan security forces is likely to increase due to a combination of Taliban operations, combat casualties, defections, poor logistics and weak leadership,” warned National Intelligence Director Dan Coats.
Coats runs a team of more than a dozen spy agencies, including the CIA and the FBI.
Illinois Republican Senator Joni Ernst Kay called on intelligence chiefs to indicate measures Washington would like neighbors to take to Kabul to help stabilize the region.
“I think definitely an assessment of how we work with Pakistan to deal with the situation of hosting terrorist groups would be essential for a strategy that affects Afghanistan,” said M. Coats.
“Because this is a potentially very damaging situation putting our own troops at risk and undermining the strategy to deal with local Taliban groups and try to undermine the government (Afghanistan). It is a very clear link I think I have to address In conjunction with everything that has been done in Afghanistan. ”
“In addition to more troops, whatever plan might be part of the plan we see, we have to implement a different strategy on the ground in Afghanistan.” Ernst Senator asked Lieutenant General of Defense, General Vincent Stewart.
“We have to get some things in. One, very clear, security and stability in Afghanistan is in the interest of all parts of the region and it is safe for Pakistan,” Stewart said.
“We must convince Pakistan that if they receive members of the Haqqani network, they are not interested in continuing to host the Haqqani network.”
Stewart also urged the Trump administration to work with Afghanistan’s neighbors to go after the 20 terrorist organizations remain active in the region.
“They threaten not only Afghanistan, but not just Pakistan, but the entire region,” he added.
Stewart also suggested “pushing” Pakistan to do more against the Haqqani network and urged lawmakers to “separate the Pashtun Taliban” because Pakistan wanted Pakistan-dominated Pashtun.
“So we need to resume the conversation with Pakistan on its part, not to house any of these terrorists, helping to stabilize Afghanistan and, I think, perhaps, we will have progress,” it was said.

“They consider all the challenges through the emergence of a threat from India to the state of Pakistan. So they organize terrorist organizations … so if Afghanistan is based in India, it no longer supports the idea of A stable and secure Afghanistan that could harm the interests of Pakistan, “he said.

PM Modi to hardsell India’s economic reform initiatives in Germany

PM Modi to hardsell India’s economic reform initiatives in Germany

BERLIN: Summer has come this year in Berlin. But as temperatures may not reach the heights of Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is likely to find Germany in the heat of a summer night when he plays + here on Monday night.
On the first of the two scheduled visits this year in Germany – Modi will return to Hamburg in July for the G20 + Summit – the bilateral summit will be launched with a warm dinner with Chancellor Angela Merkel at Schloss-Meseberg, Country Official Chancellor of Retirement. This is a special gesture to point out the importance of the bilateral relationship. This will be the last meeting of Modi-Merkel before Germany does towards the national elections in September.
Merkel warns the United States, Britain, the unreliable partner
In a Facebook message prior to his visit, Modi said: “Our strategic alliance is based on democratic values and a commitment to a global order, based on inclusive and open standards.” Germany is a valuable partner in our development and knowledge initiatives Of German fits well with my vision of transforming India “The continuity of India’s foreign policy is most evident here -. Manmohan Singh and Modi describe the relationship between India and Germany as “transformation”.
Modi and Merkel will convene a group of top leaders here today that Modi’s economic reform initiatives in India are expected to stand out and invite them to invest in India. The problem in this case, from the German point of view, is India’s decision to kill the entire bilateral investment treaty between India and European countries.
Indian authorities said the treaties were badly negotiated and clearly against the interests of India. European countries have asked India to hold for six more months, but India refused, anticipating that European countries weigh heavily with the EC to complete free-trade talks between India and EU. Discussions on the FTA have been delayed and will continue to be the fact that the EU is currently consumed with the Brexit negotiations.
Meanwhile, India has circulated a text of the model investment treaty, which is useless to the European countries that have given this power in Brussels. In the absence of the ILO, German officials said there were no new investments in India that would affect their decisions

Modi must convince them that investment in India will benefit from protections.
Away, Modi said:. “On May 30, Chancellor Merkel and I will conduct the fourth IGC to examine the state of our bilateral relations, also described future cooperation Roadmap oriented to trade and investment, security and counter-terrorism , Innovation and science and technology, skills development, urban infrastructure, railways and civil aviation, clean energy, development cooperation, health and alternative medicine. ” The Indian firm closed an agreement with Germany last week on cooperation in traditional medicine.

CopyCat Malware Roots Devices, Shows Fraudulent Ads

CopyCat Malware Roots Devices, Shows Fraudulent Ads

CopyCat Malware Roots Devices, Shows Fraudulent Ads

Security Services, a security services company, has posted new information in malicious software integrated with certain applications installed outside the Google Play Store.

Malware CopyCat is capable of stopping the device, installing fraudulent applications, distributing fraudulent ads and stealing installation credits from the application.

All these features have been possible thanks to the exploitation of certain security breaks in the Android operating system, which should allow the malware root of infected devices.

The roots of infected devices is in itself a matter of great concern, since it opens the user to a wide range of security issues and exploits.

Once the device is rooted, the malicious software then tries to change the application code launch system for the Android operating system.

Modifying the application startup system also allows malware developers to monitor user activity.

This information could be used by developers to generate advertising revenue by displaying fraudulent ads in non-infected applications or stealing the credit facility from other developers’ applications.

As developers can remotely change attack targets from malicious software, they can also be used to infiltrate a corporate network or retrieve sensitive information stored on a device.

The malware has infected about 14 million Android devices, of which more than half are in Asia. Of the total number of infected devices, about $ 8 million were ingrained, probably without the user’s knowledge.

In addition, software installed by fraudulent malware on about 4.9 million devices, while owners of 3.8 million devices should treat advertising for malware.

Due to the large number of infected devices, malicious software developers CopyCat managed to earn about $ 1.5 million in advertising revenue.

It is likely that most affected devices installed Android 5.0 Lollipop, or even previous versions of the software because these vulnerabilities are present in the versions of the Android operating system.

It is not yet known exactly what group is behind the imitation malware, but the evidence suggests MobiSummer, a China-based advertising network.

While the company itself is not responsible for malware developers use the network infrastructure to earn advertising revenue.

Given the recent discovery of different malicious software embedded in some Android applications, it is important that users are more vigilant.

If CopyCat malware, just install the applications directly from the Google Play Store to prevent the device from becoming infected.

The iPhone 8 Will Only Boost Samsung’s Lead Over Apple As Most Profitable Tech Company

The iPhone 8 Will Only Boost Samsung's Lead Over Apple As Most Profitable Tech Company

The iPhone 8 Will Only Boost Samsung’s Lead Over Apple As Most Profitable Tech Company

Not even a year after one of the biggest public relations disasters of consumer technology in history, Samsung has risen with its most profitable quarter yet – enough to push it ahead of Apple as the most profitable technology company at world.

As reported by the Wall Street Journal, South Korean chaebol announced today that its second-quarter operating result hit a record 14 trillion won (US $ 12.1 billion), slightly higher than Apple’s operating profit is expected to be 10.6 billion over the same period.

The bulk is due to the activity in Samsung semiconductor development and also to the success of Galaxy S8 (a device that, in my opinion, is the best material for the phone phone).

And while the quarterly figures tend to rebound depending on the time of year – last year, briefly exceeded Samsung’s Huawei as the most profitable Android maker result in Note 7 – Samsung and Apple were the first two as of now, And it is unlikely that someone will exceed it at any time, unless one of them suffers from a product failure.

This means that the only company that affected Samsung in the first place is Apple.

But if Apple fans believe that the iPhone 8 to come (including all reports and leaks indicate a major upgrade in the innovative iPhone 1 boring level) push the giant of Cupertino on top, certainly will not do Yes, according to WSJ (I came to this conclusion earlier this year). The reason? The Premium version of the next iPhone will generate Samsung OLED screens.

This is a very interesting position for Samsung.

Its own flagship phone is currently the talk of the city, and the only phone that has real chances of damaging the sale this year is an iPhone that uses Samsung display technology. More iPhone sold more than 8 tablets from Samsung are profitable.

Apple, of course, does not really benefit Samsung like that, but he has no choice.

As I’ve written in almost every review on my phone, it can not be denied that OLED screens are superior to LCD screens (this is what the iPhone uses).

And the only other company in the world to get closer to Samsung, which is the production of OLED is the LG competitor that crosses the city. This is why there have been so many rumors about Apple that I wanted to partner with LG for OLED sourcing panels as if Apple had to help another company, it would be better not to help someone who breathes the neck the supremacy of smartphones.
