then the person goes without taking off the handbrake When our staff requests them to park in a proper manner people start arguing” Bhora said Marshals with the company would also teach residents proper spacing between vehicles and the minimum distance that has to be maintained “Sometimes people park so close to the next car that the other person can’t even open his car door; sometimes they park in such a manner that the other person cannot take out his vehicle from the bay So these basic parking manners need to be taught” he added The company will also give 100 to 200 free parking passes which would be valid for some time to all those people who participate in the campaigns Bhora said that the VIP culture was leading to problems “If there are two cars lined up for paying the

healthy brain ageing Top News A novel chocolate made of dietary cocoa extract can promote brain health and prevent age-related neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s in the elderly scientists have determined There is strong scientific evidence supporting the growing interest in developing cocoa extract and potentially certain dietary chocolate preparations as a natural source to maintain and promote brain health the researchers wrote This noval chocolate can “prevent age-related neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease which is the most common form of age-related Dementia affecting an estimated 44 million people worldwide” said Dr Giulio Maria Pasinetti Professor of Neurology from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York Cocoa extracts contain Polyphenols – micronutrients- that have many health benefits including reducing age-related cognitive dysfunction and promoting healthy brain ageing Previous studies from Dr Pasinetti’s laboratory suggest that certain cocoa extract preparations may prevent or possibly delay Alzheimer’s disease in animal experimental models of the disease Share This Article Related Article Most importantly the role of cocoa Polyphenols in preventing abnormal accumulation of toxic protein aggregates in the brain would play a pivotal role in preventing the loss of synapses that are critical for functional connection among neurons The benefits of cocoa Polyphenols in preventing synapse loss and therefore in preserving or restoring synaptic function may provide a viable and important strategy for preserving cognitive function the authors noted “There is a need for multi-disciplinary collaborative efforts involving cocoa producers wholesalers and the bio-medical community if we want to succeed in the development of cocoa extract for health benefits” Dr Pasinetti emphasised Evidence suggests that certain procedures used in cocoa processing can significantly influence its Polyphenol content ultimately influencing its biological activity “Interestingly two of the most common processing techniques for the chocolate we consume have been reported to result in the loss of as much as 90 percent of the Polyphenols in cocoa” Dr Pasinetti maintained Ongoing research will provide an unprecedented opportunity to strengthen our understanding of the beneficial roles of cocoa

assembly polls The CPI (Maoist) has pasted posters circulated long notes and asked the villagers directly to desist from voting Representational image Reuters “Soon after the Election Commission announced the polling dates for Bihar the Maoists started giving poll boycott calls in their strongholds in Jamui Gaya and Aurangabad It was done to give a message about their presence which is gradually diminishing We’ve seized handbills posters and circulars from Maoist-infested pockets” Arun Kumar Inspector General CRPF told Firstpost The Left ultras have been issuing such threats over past several years with diminishing response from people They had issued such diktats in Bastar another stronghold before Chhattisgarh assembly elections in 2013 and the general election of 2014 too However ignoring their threat people came out in large number to exercise their voting right The Maoists have strongly criticised Bihar CM Nitish Kumar for following neo-liberal policies and ditching voters They have reasoned that the right form of government couldn’t be formed through democratically held elections In the last 65 years the Indian public has only been exploited they maintain The Maoist cadre has appealed to wage an “armed war against the establishment” During its combing operation besides the posters and pamphlets the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) has recovered arms and ammunition and huge cash According to latest data the security forces have recovered Rs 895 crore from Naxal-infested districts in Bihar “Our battalions have recovered arms detonators and IEDs in large quantities The Maoists wanted to create disturbance and inflict damage on a large-scale during polls” added Kumar Former prime minister Manmohan Singh once famously said his silence was better than a thousand answers because it kept the aabroo (honour) of many questions That poetic riposte was to allegations of corruption in allocation of 2G spectrum and coal blocks It seems the prime minister’words were indeed prophetic For Manmohan indeed maintained silence when his advice was sought on a controversial change in the procedure for allotment of licences that were later scrapped by the Supreme Court Though the Congress has been celebrating the special CBI court verdict on allegations of corruption in allocation of 2G licences a careful reading of the judgment hints at the atmosphere of permissiveness and pliability in the PMO under Manmohan The verdict suggests Manmohan could be easily kept in the dark on key policy issues by his own team thus proving the charge that he was a puppet prime minister A file image of former prime minister Manmohan Singh PTI At the core of the 2G controversy apart from the low prices charged from buyers is the then telecom minister A Raja’s decision to overnight change the first-come-first-served policy to first-pay-first-served This somersault denied bidders a level-playing field and allegedly helped those who had inside information on the decision to walk away with licences In his judgment special CBI judge OP Saini observed that Raja had conveyed to Manmohan what he intended to do but PMO officials presented a partial view to the then prime minister keeping him in the dark about the decision to change the policy to first-pay-first-served Saini also pointed out that Raja wrote a letter on 2 November 2007 to Manmohan informing him of the large number of applications and scarce spectrum He also talked about other issues including the fact that auction was not recommended either by the telecom regulator or the Telecom Commission headed by the telecom secretary But the court observed there was no evidence to suggest the letter was examined by South Block Instead in response to Raja’s note Manmohan’s principal secretary Pulok Chatterjee put up another note that did not talk about the controversial aspects at all "This note discussed only the spectrum related issues as to how much spectrum was available in the country (and related matters). This note did not consider at all the issue of new licences which were to be issued as per changed criteria from date of application to date of payment and was also the most controversial one Thus this note gave only a partial view of the whole issue and ignored the most important and controversial issue of new licences" the court said Now this is a stunning indictment of the work ethics of the PMO under Manmohan First it shows that it could be manipulated by bureaucrats by withholding important information from the prime minister Two important decisions could be taken by his principal secretary Chatterjee who according to Saini not only withheld controversial aspects of Raja’s letter to Manmohan but also gave a go-ahead to the changes himself after consulting the telecom secretary And three it shows even when the prime minister came to know of these lapses he did not take any action against the guilty officers Chatterjee’s clout in the UPA government was well known He was considered close to 10 Janpath and thus had access to a parallel power centre That he got away by keeping the prime minister in the dark about controversial policy changes and then continued to remain in a position of power certainly give credence to the theory that Manmohan was just the face of the government It also reinforces the belief that led to Manmohan’s eventual downfall By the end of his tenure Manmohan had acquired the reputation of a prime minister who was perennially silent and ran a government that allowed ministers and bureaucrats to run their departments like independent jaagirs Saini’s verdict only vindicates those who derided him as Maun Mohan Singh The Congress now rues that the prime minister’s reputation was tarnished by lies rumours and conspiracies But Manmohan himself is to blame for the denouement His own silence ultimately contributed to the fall in the aabroo of the prime minister’s office New Delhi:Rebel Janata Dal-United MP Sharad Yadav on Saturday voiced concern over the Election Commission’s decision to postpone announcement of the Gujarat poll date saying it was "not a good thing" and would raise questions on the credibility of the poll panel File image of rebel JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav PTI Speaking to reporters the senior leader also hit out at the BJP for maintaining different standards for itself and Opposition leaders over the controversy surrounding BJP president Amit Shah’s son Jay On the delay by the Election Commission in announcing dates for the Gujarat election he said "for the first time such a thing has happened I don’t think it is good "People have reposed their faith in the Election Commission for long and have trusted its credibility in testing times Not announcing Gujarat election dates is not a good thing" he said Yadav said that "democracy is the driving force of our Constitution And the Election Commission till date has maintained its credibility" He said that earlier the Election Commission members would even in adverse circumstances maintain the neutrality of the poll panel and "act as an honest referral" On the controversy over the massive spike in the turnover of Jay Shah’s company after the NDA came to power in 2014 Yadav said "Jay Shah is a Shahzada and we should speak less about them People here are fond of Shahzadas They (BJP) have different standards and laws for the Opposition which are not implemented on their own party members" Singh said. suspect arrested after manhunt | Reuters World Reuters Aug 09, because he did have some chances. download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Published: September 5.
