Artificial sweeteners make you crave more sugar.

Attempting to substitute sugar with artificial sweeteners has been shown in studies to boost consumption of sweet and calorie-dense foods.

This is due to the fact that aspartame and other sugar substitutes do not provide the body with the same amount of energy as sugar. The proper number of calories aren't being consumed, yet the temptation to eat something sweet persists.

If you want to give up sugar, don't switch to sugar alternatives; instead, strive to minimize the amount of sugar in your diet. It turns out that it isn't all that difficult.

Cancer prevention is important.

A change in diet is always one of the points of preventive for any disease. And cancer is no exception, since specific diets have been shown to lower cancer risk.

Garlic contains anti-tumor compounds, broccoli contains isothiocyanate, which can destroy cancer cells, and greens remove cancer cells from the body.

Citrus fruits, grapes, red wine, blueberries, tomatoes, and green tea have anti-carcinogenic qualities, according to studies. So include these items in your diet, but don't overdo it because you need to be correct in all you do.

How dangerous is salt?

Sodium chloride is an inorganic chemical that is used to make salt.

Both sodium and chlorine are required for the nervous system to conduct impulses; without them, like potassium and calcium, the nervous system will not function.

Salt is required to create a bodily environment in which cells remain alive, do not lose water, and do not accumulate too much of it.

We lose salt through sweat and urine, thus it must be ingested on a daily basis.

Its lack causes severe nervous system diseases, low blood pressure, muscle spasms, mineral leaching from bones, and muscle degeneration.

Excess salt raises blood pressure and promotes edoema, or water retention in the body. Hypertensives and those with renal problems are particularly vulnerable.

As you can see, salt is vital for our bodies; the key is to know how much to take...

What is the impact of smoking on the environment?

According to the WHO, cigarette products include 7000 hazardous compounds that wind up in nature after being discarded. At a cost to taxpayers of millions of dollars. 

Smoking is not only harmful for your health, but also for the environment, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

In a recent research titled "Tobacco: Poisoning Our Planet," the WHO estimates that tobacco production and consumption costs more than eight million lives, 600 million trees, 200,000 hectares of land, 22 billion tonnes of water, and releases roughly 84 million tonnes of climate-damaging carbon dioxide (CO2). The amount of CO2 emitted equal to the annual emissions of around 17 million gasoline-powered cars.

On World No Tobacco Day today, WHO head for health promotion Rüdiger Krech claimed that tobacco products included more than 7,000 harmful substances that were discharged into the environment when discarded. 

Every year, around 4.5 trillion cigarette filters end up in oceans, rivers, pavements, floors, and beaches.

Almost always, taxpayers, not industry, bear the cost of cleaning up abandoned cigarette products. This costs China $2.6 billion per year and India $766 million each year. Germany's costs are estimated to be more than 200 million dollars, according to WHO estimates (186 million euros).
Countries and localities have asked the tobacco industry to take responsibility for the disposal of cigarette residues, according to WHO. Furthermore, policymakers should consider prohibiting the use of cigarette filters. These contained microplastics, which contribute significantly to plastic pollution. Their health benefits, however, have not been demonstrated, according to the WHO.

European leaders agree to ban Russian oil: Will they be able to hurt the Russian war machine this way?

European leaders reached an agreement late last night to ban Russian oil imports. That would come into effect by the end of this year. Initially, it concerns an embargo on oil imported by sea, which will ban two-thirds of all Russian oil. Including a Polish-German import ban, a total of more than 90 percent of Russian oil is withdrawn from the market. 

Oil supplied via the Druzhba pipeline (the longest oil pipeline in the world) will remain outside the boycott for the time being. On Wednesday, the ambassadors of the member states will discuss the details.

It was European Council President Charles Michel who confirmed the agreement around 11.45 pm. According to him, the embargo "cuts off a major source of funding from the Russian war machine". In this way, Europe is putting maximum pressure on Russia to end the war in Ukraine, Michel said.

The European Union plan indicated that still think that this war will end by the end of Year. 

A common man like me thinks replacing energy supply is not easy. Consumers will have to pay heavy price for this.  This kind financial sanctions will hurt both sides.

I think it would be foolish that they think that can end Russia decades-long dominance of energy market. 

European companies also sell machinery, transport equipment, chemicals, medicines and agricultural products to Russian. 

European Union imports 84% of their oil and 76% of natural gas from Russia. Germany is the single biggest importer of oil and gas from Russia. 

IEA’s 10-point plan looks good in paper but it will be difficult to implement and reduces reliance on Russian supplies. 

Even Americans are feeling the impact of the conflict in Ukraine.  Americans are witnessing higher prices at gas stations and grocery stores. 

European leaders can import oil from other routes. I wonder how they plan to end their natural gas dependence on Russia. 

Everyone agrees that replacing Russian energy will be costly. The question is: Why do they want to put more burden on their citizens.

New accessibility features for smartphones for blinds and disabled people

 For many blind or deaf people, mobile phones are a lifeline. Using toasters, kettles, and other similar appliances, on the other hand, has become more difficult..

Photo by cottonbro:

Apple and Google are releasing new software features for smartphones, tablets, and computers to make devices and operating systems more accessible to people with disabilities. For example, on World Accessibility Day, Apple announced that it will bring live subtitles to the screens of its devices for the deaf and hard of hearing community.

It would make it easier for users to follow audio content while on the phone, in a video conference or social media app, streaming media content, or chatting with someone nearby. Live subtitles will initially only be offered in English. Last fall, Google introduced a similar feature for its Pixel smartphones.

Improvements are planned for Android.

More improvements to the Android mobile system were announced last week at the Google I/O developer conference, lowering barriers for disabled people. A new version of the Lookout app was unveiled, allowing blind or partially sighted people to have photo content described to them. Lookout 3.0 focuses on photos from the news and social networks. Texts visible in the image can also be read out by the app. The "Live Transcribe" app, which converts spoken language into writing and recognizes common sounds like a doorbell, has also been greatly enhanced.

The "Door Detection" feature was also introduced by Apple. "This makes it easier for blind and visually impaired people to navigate the final few meters to their destination," said Sarah Herrlinger, the group's global accessibility manager. For example, the app can tell you whether a door is open or closed, what signs or notices are nearby, and whether you need to push, pull, or press a button to open it. The iPhone's magnifying glass app can be used to access the "door recognition."

Ovens, toasters, kettles harder to use

Experts also pointed out that some everyday household appliances, such as ovens, toasters, washing machines, and even kettles, are becoming increasingly difficult to use for the disabled on "World Accessibility Day." Manufacturers might, for example, replace traditional switches or knobs on devices with touch screens that aren't intended to be barrier-free.

According to Artur Ortega, software architect at British healthcare provider Babylon Health, such devices can be operated by the disabled in some cases if there is an associated smartphone app that can read out the temperature or the set program for ovens, for example. "However, in order to do so, the apps must be designed to be barrier-free." In contrast to manufacturers in the United States, where accessibility is often mandated by law, German manufacturers, in particular, have a long way to go.

Is Putin's health in decline? Or it just a propaganda.

 Russian President Vladimir Putin's health has long been a source of speculation in the media. Much is said about the fact that he is seriously ill. 

According to a Daily Mirror source, a Russian FSB officer, the dictator suffers from a serious form of cancer and was about to learn from doctors how much time he had left.

After the beginning of Russia's invasion of Ukraine, public opinion and the media began to frequently discuss Vladimir Putin's health, which had been the subject of occasional speculation in previous years.

Putin's health has deteriorated significantly, according to the majority of reports and alleged Kremlin leaks. It was reported that he had Parkinson's disease, mental disorders, bad legs, and was battling multiple types of cancer.

Now, the British newspaper "The Daily Mirror" reports, citing a Russian officer of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FBS), that "Putin suffers from a severe form of cancer and has severe eyesight problems." According to an FSB agent, doctors informed the Russian leader that he had only two to three years to live.

Putin reportedly suffers from severe migraines, and when he appears on television, he needs cards with capital letters so he can read his lines. Each page contains only a few sentences due to the size of the letters. His eyesight is deteriorating rapidly. In addition, his legs and hands are trembling uncontrollably, an FSB source told the tabloid.

A dozen or so days ago, the Italian newspaper "La Stampa" reported, citing anonymous sources, that Putin "underwent a cancer-related operation at night in order to maintain maximum discretion." Earlier, the planned operation was reported by British media, citing a Kremlin source.

Putin's appearance, behavior, and movements have been exhaustively dissected by Internet users, medical professionals, and the media in order to determine what ailments the dictator may be suffering from.

A specialist in internal medicine said that , it is impossible to make a diagnosis based on such analyses.

The Kremlin is dealing with military shortages. According to a Polish news website.

This report is very difficult to verify. According to news reports, Russia is moving forward at full speed.

In March, Carole Landry wrote an article titled "Russia Captures Its First City."

 How can British Intelligence report such catastrophic losses? 

Reports say they require more experienced officers at the front.

New cities have been captured after Kerson.
Kharkiv, Kyiv, Chernihiv, and Mariupol have been taken.

The capture of these cities indicates that Russia requires additional men to keep control of the cities. 

That is why Vladimir Putin passed legislation allowing those over the age of 40 to join the military. I think.

Specialists are required to handle high-precision weaponry, according to the new law.

According to the BBC, the new law will allow for the hiring of a bigger number of medics and engineers.

According to the BBC story, they are looking for experts to handle high-precision weapons. Anyone who has served in the army understands that there is a distinct difference between a regular soldier and a specialist.

Russia had168 tactical battalion units just before the invasion of Ukraine (one group is 800 soldiers plus 50 combat vehicles). About 125 of them were expected to take part in the battle. 

Russia lost some of them throughout the war's three months. 

According to Pentagon estimates, 106 groups remained in Ukrainian territory on May 16, and 110 groups remained ten days later. According to "Forbes," about 20 or 30 groups remain in the reserve in this situation.

The world must try to end this war. Ukrainian people are suffering.

How Nawaz saved Pakistan and Silenced BJP war mongers in India in 1998

(Copied and translated from the Facebook Post of Saulat Bhai)

I was among those who believed that Pakistan should not retaliate carrying our nuclear explosions.  

The US President Clinton had called Prime Minister Nawaz several times and offered him five billion dollars officially

 I thought that this offer should be accepted by the government to improve the economy. 

The world knows that we have atomic bomb. What would we get carrying out the atomic explosion? 

I was watching an Indian channel on a dish at home on May 5, 1998.  It was showing live telecast of Lok Sabha. L K Advani and Vajpayee were making speeches. They were in the government.  They were making claims that they would wipe out Pakistan with their atomic bombs. 

I thought why they were fiery speeches when they had carried out the nuclear explosion. It  will only increase tension between the two countries. Why were they trying to make Pakistan angry?

Pranab Mukherjee was in opposition at the time and he was on crutches due to an accident. He got up and went out and came back in ten minutes.  He asked for the floor. He said that he had just listened BBC broadcast which said that Pakistan had carried out six nuclear explosions.  His words silenced the whole parliament floor. 

 Vajpayee Gee and Advani Gee immediately went out after hearing this and came back after a while and offered to live in peace with Pakistan in their speeches.  Long live Pakistan! And long live Nawaz Sharif!

Police response to a school shooting in Texas has been questioned by investigators.

 On Saturday, Texas investigators were attempting to determine how critical errors occurred in the aftermath of the Uvalde massacre, including why nearly 20 police officers remained outside a primary school classroom while panicked children dialed 911 for assistance.

The ongoing investigation by the Texas Department of Public Safety into the massacre of 19 children and two teachers in the deadliest school shooting in the United States in nearly a decade is focused on why officers waited nearly an hour in the hallway before entering and killing the gunman.

Investigators are also trying to figure out why the attack happened. Salvador Ramos had no criminal record and no history of mental illness when he dropped out of high school.

According to Colonel Steven McCraw, director of the Department of Public Safety in Texas, at least two children in two adjacent fourth-grade rooms called 911 after Ramos, 18, entered the building on Tuesday with an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

The commander on the scene, the chief of the school district's police department, believed Ramos was barricaded inside and the children were no longer in immediate danger, according to McCraw, giving officers time to prepare.

8 ways to help your child crawl

 This training is crucial for the baby's development, according to a pediatric orthopedist.

The first year of life is full of intense and fascinating motor and cognitive development. That newcomer to the world is able to roll over, sit up, support its own head, and explore the world around it in a short period of time. Each child has his or her own rhythm, and each stage has its own need for attention, as new dangers may present themselves in the way of the little one.

A baby can start crawling between the ages of 7 and 10 months, according to a pediatric orthopedist. To support the trunk and lift it off the ground, the arms and legs must be strong.

Crawling can be done in a variety of ways, including with four supports (hands and knees on the floor), buttocks with the help of hands, and sliding belly down. The most important thing is for the baby to be able to explore its surroundings and strengthen its muscles before learning to walk. Parents and caregivers must actively encourage the development of motor skills in their children.

Some children, on the other hand, dislike crawling and try to avoid this crucial developmental stage. Here are some suggestions for these situations:

1. Offer stimuli

Stimuli should be given to a child who is awake and calm.

2. Place the child on his stomach

Place the child on his stomach, but keep an eye on him. Babies over the age of six months can stay in this position for 20 to 30 minutes.

3. Use mirrors

Using mirrors can be fun. It can also encourage crawling by arousing the child's natural curiosity.

4. Crawl with baby

Crawling alongside your baby can be motivating and set a good example for your child.

5. Don't overdo it in practice

If the parents exaggerate the stimuli, the child may become irritable and cry. It's fine if the fun has to come to an end. It's critical that he develops positive associations while training.

6. Show objects

Show objects that arouse the child's interest and that are not so close to him.

7. Put obstacles in the way

Small obstacles (pillows, boxes, pillows) can be placed in the way as the child's skills develop.

8. Play with the baby

A good tip is to get involved in the game and hide behind obstacles while playing.

If the baby is already crawling, however, extra attention to the environment is required to avoid accidents. The baby should never be left alone; for example, the mattress in the crib should be lowered. Bars should also be installed on stairwells and dangerous rooms' doors, such as the kitchen and backyard.

Small objects should also be kept off the floor so that the baby does not swallow them."  It is necessary to be careful with corners, sockets, loose wires and always keep the child away from places with water, because only 5 cm of depth is enough for drowning.

How to prevent a simple allergy from turning into asthma?

 Although it may appear to be a common and harmless reaction, we must not overlook ourselves.

People who are allergic to pollen are at risk of developing asthma. A phase change occurs when an allergy spreads from the upper respiratory tract to the lower respiratory tract, i.e. the lungs.

When the affected patient comes into contact with the allergens, they not only develop allergy symptoms like runny and itchy eyes, cough, and discomfort in the ears, throat, pharynx, and palate, but their bronchial tubes contract spasmodically, causing asthmatic cough and shortness of breath. According to Professor Christian Taube of the German Lung Foundation, life-threatening asthma attacks are also possible.

This doctor advises anyone suffering from these seemingly innocuous allergic reactions to see an allergist or a pulmonary medicine specialist, as immunological therapy can help to gradually reduce the allergy and thus prevent the development of bronchial asthma.

According to the German Lung Foundation, most people with bronchial asthma require long-term or permanent treatment.

Professor Taube points out that these drugs not only relieve asthmatic respiratory symptoms, but they also combat allergies as triggers of inflammatory processes in the upper and lower airways.

Seen :Falling Inn Love; on Netflix yet?

Seen "Falling Inn Love" on Netflix yet? 

Enjoy New Zealand's beautiful scenery and sweet love story. The village and the people who lived there were delightful. It makes you want to live there. So what if it was somewhat predictable. The main characters were attractive and made you want to root for them. With a happy ending, the story was simple, entertaining, and satisfying. Overall, I enjoyed the film because it was devoid of profanity and swearing.

Gabriela Diaz's (Christina Milian) design firm in San Francisco closes the week after she and her boyfriend break up. She enters a contest to "Win an Inn" overlooking New Zealand's countryside after being inspired by a potent concoction of wine and Wi-Fi. She discovers The Bellbird Valley Farm, which has a crumbling facade, a floorboard-treading goat, and a meddling neighbor who covets the space, thousands of airline miles later.

She teams up with Jake Taylor (Adam Demos), a Kiwi contractor and volunteer firefighter who observes much of her city-girl culture shock, in order to renovate and sell the property quickly. She's hesitant to leave him, the inn, and the welcoming community that nurtured her creative side once the final fixtures are hung.

The Other Queen : A review by Nazeha Maryam Jamal

By Nazeha Maryam Jamal

 “And I? I am two things at once: the second highest being in the world, a queen; and the very lowest: a woman without home, husband, or fortune. I am a queen three times over because I was born Queen of Scotland, daughter to King James V of Scotland, I was married to the Dauphin of France and inherited the French crown with him, and I am, in my own right, the only true and legitimate heir to the throne of England, being the great-grand niece to King Henry VII of England, though his bastard daughter, Elizebeth has usurped my throne.” 

In 1567, Mary was forced to abdicate in favor of her son James who was just one year old at the time. After failing to recover her throne she flees to England hoping that Elizebeth would help her in regaining her crown.  But Elizebeth fearing that she will overthrow her as she had a more legitimate claim to the English throne imprisons her. The story is narrated by three people: Mary, George Talbot and his wife Bess who were Mary’s guardians in England. 

 The relationship between these two queens is fascinating to me. Mary spent her whole life running from one place to another and that did not give her any experience in ruling a country therefor she was not a good politician. She made a ton of errors in attempt to regain her throne and to me seems incredibly naïve. Whereas Elizebeth was smart and cunning although she seemed to have inherited the paranoia of her father. Elizebeth imprisoned Mary for 19 years and they were such legendary rivals but what’s funny is that they never once met in person. History has a funny way of coming full circle. Elizebeth’s father, King Henry the VII married six women for a male heir but her daughter went on to become one of the greatest female monarchs. Mary’ sons James I united and ruled all Scotland, England and Ireland.

Asrar Ahmed, a prolific fiction novelist wrote under the name Ibn-e-Safi.

by Nazeha Maryam Jamal

 Today, I want to introduce you all to one of my favorite authors of all time. He is the person other than J.K Rowling that made me fall in love with reading. I would read his books non-stop through the night, never realizing when the sun came up. My sister and I used to read it under the covers and then get scolded by Amma, ‘Beta ankhain kharab hojaien gi.’  

Asrar Ahmed, a prolific fiction novelist wrote under the name Ibn-e-Safi. His most famous works which are shown in the picture are Jasoosi Dunya and Imran Series. According to Wikipedia, he started writing detective stories in response to someone claiming in a literary meeting that Urdu literature had little scope for anything except sexual themes (Standing ovation for this Gen Z energy). 

Jasoosi Dunya and Imran Series 125 and 120 parts each. These novels are laced with action, mystery, and adventure and a whole lot crime-solving. Humor is also one of the most key aspects and Ibn-e-Safi used it as a tool to make his characters feel approachable and somewhat closer to the audience. The leads of his novels Inspector Fareedi, Sergeant Hameed (Jasoosi Dunya) and Ali Imran through bravery, quick-wittiness, intelligence and daredevilry garnered immense praise and adulation from people across South Asia.  

Ibn-e-Safi's storytelling is impeccable. Keep in mind that he started writing them in the 1950s so the level of technology, sci-fi, and villains he depicts leaves you in awe. They are for every generation basically. I always read his forewords as they are hilarious. He is used to reply to fan-mail in them and according to me like Ghalib ke khatoot, these gems should also be compiled. He had a way of winning your heart with witty remarks and funny anecdotes. His books are a part of my family legacy and will always hold a special place in my heart.

Antibiotics aren't working? The reason may be pollution.

 One of the most pressing issues in modern medicine is the rise in antibiotic resistance among bacteria and other microorganisms. According to new research, pollution may also cause bacteria to develop antibiotic resistance. Heavy metal-polluted rivers have more bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics, as it turns out. The resistance of microbes increases even when the water is not contaminated with drugs.

Photo by Pietro Jeng:

Antibiotic resistance is primarily caused by the overuse of antibiotics in human medicine and agriculture. It is also favored by drugs, which, as pollutants, end up in bodies of water and other natural areas.

Antibiotic resistance can also be caused by another type of pollutant, heavy metals, as evidenced by a recent study published in the journal Environmental Pollution.

The level of bacterial resistance to antibiotics and heavy metals in sediments from two rivers, the Ganges and Yamuna, and streams in the British Tyne catchment area, was investigated by researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi and colleagues from the United Kingdom. Due to the area's history of intensive mining activity, the water in Tyne contains a high concentration of heavy metals.

The findings revealed that heavy metal resistance genes, as well as antibiotic resistance genes, are more common in areas where heavy metals are abundant. Even if the river was not poisoned with antibiotics alone, this would be the case.

One of the reasons is that bacteria of the Firmicutes and Bacteroidota types, which contain both of these types of genes, have an advantage in metal-contaminated environments.

Two metal combinations, cobalt with nickel and cobalt with zinc and cadmium, were found to promote the growth of resistant bacteria the most.

This research does not necessarily imply a health risk, but it does demonstrate that even if a river or stream is not contaminated with antibiotics, it may still contain more antibiotic-resistant bacteria due to contamination with other substances, such as metals. Antibiotic resistance is a greater concern for rivers like the Yamuna, which are contaminated with metals and a variety of other pollutants.

Prof. David Graham of Newcastle University, one of the study's co-authors, says.

According to the researchers, high metal exposure can cause bacteria to develop antibiotic resistance, making them resistant to a variety of drugs.

When heavy metals are combined with other contaminants such as antibiotics, detergents, and other chemicals, heavy metal-induced antibiotic resistance increases. 

This emphasizes the importance of reducing heavy metal contamination in order to limit antibiotic resistance transmission and spread.

Dr. Sonia Gupta of the Indian Institute of Technology explains.

In "Stranger Things 4," there was a cautionary note. This is how Netflix responds to the Texas shootings.

 The long-awaited fourth season of "Stranger Things" premiered on Netflix on Friday.  In response to the recent shooting at a Texas elementary school, the Duffer brothers and service decided to make changes to the show. Before the first episode, there was a disclaimer.

"Stranger Things 4" - a warning about the Uvalde shooting

"Stranger Things 4" has already aired seven episodes on Netflix (the final two episodes will air in July). The premiere of the cult series about kids from Hawkins happened to fall on the same day as a massacre in Uvalde, Texas, just a few days ago. On the grounds of Robb Elementary School, an assailant aged 18 fired at 19 students and three teachers. The tragedy is regarded as the third deadliest shooting in the United States since the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre.


The Duffer brothers, the creators of "Stranger Things," were not indifferent to the tragedy that befell the families and friends of those murdered in Uvalde. The first episode of the fourth season opens with a grisly massacre at the Hawkins National Laboratory. As a result, Netflix decided to include a warning before the opening sequence. It contains dramatic scenes that may be too intense for American audiences.

"This season of Stranger Things was filmed a year ago. "Due to the recent tragic school shooting in Texas, some viewers may feel uneasy about the first episode's opening scene," the warning states.

A shootout at an elementary school in Texas

On Tuesday, May 24, armed 18-year-old Salvador Ramos entered an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, and opened fire on defenseless students and teachers. The shooting resulted in the deaths of 19 children aged 7 to 10 and 3 adults.

Irma Garcia, a teacher in her forties, was one of the victims. The woman taught for 23 years at the Robb Elementary School in Uvalde. Joe Garcia passed away shortly after hearing the tragic news of his wife's heart attack-related death. The couple has orphaned two sons and two daughters between the ages of 12 and 23. 

The couple's family announced the man's death on social media, indicating that the 50-year-old died of grief after losing his wife.

Amber Gonzales, mother of an 8-year-old girl who survived the shooting in Uvalde, Texas, told the Los Angeles Times, "I put her to bed and she told me she felt like someone was looking at her." 

Members of their families recounted the traumatic experiences of children who survived the attack in the pages of an American newspaper.

A fourth-grade student shared his memories on KENS TV in San Antonio during one of their programs. According to the boy, the attacker stormed into the classroom and yelled, "Time to die!"

"I told my friend to hide under something when I heard a shot through the door so he wouldn't find us," the boy said. Under the tablecloth, the fourth grader and four other students hid. This is how they managed to escape the shooting.

Many of his colleagues, as well as two teachers, were unsuccessful. "They were very good. According to the Los Angeles Times, "they stood in front of our friends to protect them."

Miah Cerillo, 11, survived by smearing her friend's blood and pretending to be dead, according to her aunt Blanca Rivera. The girl was shot in the back during the shooting. She was admitted to the hospital.

Parents say that the police did not intervene in time. TEXAS KILLER WAS IN SCHOOL FOR AN HOUR

 The anger comes after the tears! Following the bloodbath at a Texas elementary school, police are under fire for their actions.

Parents accuse the emergency services of having been inactive for too long and not intervening in time. Authorities confirmed the shooter spent approximately one hour in the classroom firing at students and teachers.

The police entered the room and shot the 18-year-old only after that point.

Parents accuse the police of a lack of decisiveness. CNN quoted Victor Luna as saying, "I told one of the officers that if they don't want to go in, lend me a gun and a vest and I'll go in and handle it myself." Jayden, his son, survived the massacre.

The police did their job, Luna said. But they could have done it faster.

Mike Sington, a citizen of the United States, uploaded a video to Twitter depicting distressed parents and family members. "Get in there!" they beg the military in the video. Instead, the officers are attempting to secure the crime scene and maintain order among the parents.

Victor Escalon of the Texas Department of Public Safety described a "complex situation" during a press conference.

Medical professionals believe that folic acid pills should be made mandatory worldwide.

The Emory Institute, the G4 Alliance, and the global disease prevention group Spina Bifida collaborated on a study paper that was published in the international journal Lancet.

Both the mother and the baby benefit from folic acid consumption throughout pregnancy. On the one hand, in youngsters, the process of head shortening is slowed, and spinal cord abnormalities are eliminated. Only 60 countries have added folic acid tablets in flour, corn, and rice after 30 years of research shown that they are safe in every way.

Many organisations have urged the World Health Assembly, which is meeting on the sidelines of the World Economic Conference, to move quickly and pass a global resolution regulating a wide range of folic acid-containing foods.

According to Dr. Vijay Conchrela of the Emory Institute, just 25% of the world's population has access to folic acid. Folic acid prevents against the dreadful disease spina bifida and can help youngsters all around the world with scalp problems. He believes that a worldwide resolve and effort can benefit the entire world. It will also aid in the achievement of UN objectives or the SGD.

According to study, diabetes hastens the ageing process and causes memory loss.

According to a study published in the journal E-Life, diabetes not only increases ageing but also accelerates brain ageing.
Type 2 diabetes, according to experts, can speed up the ageing process by 26 percent.

Our brains are gifted with amazing talents including practical memory, learning, self-control, and flexible thinking. All of these functions deteriorate with age, but diabetic people have a 7 to 13% reduction in brain processing and other problems. Another conclusion is that type 2 diabetes can lead to a wide range of mental illnesses.

After then, specialists looked at brain MRI images of healthy people and those with diabetes. Patients with diabetes had a 13 percent lower incidence of brain-related grey matter than those without diabetes. Both healthy and sick patients in this study were the same age.

As a result, neurodegeneration and type 2 diabetes are clearly linked. The effect is then amplified as the patient gets older. Overall, diabetes hastens the ageing of the brain by 26%.

Dr. Lillian Mojica Parody of Stony Brook University and her colleagues did the research. "Diabetes damages the brain physically and structurally," she explained. Earlier studies had confirmed this, and new proof has recently been discovered.
Experts have stated that other biomarkers will be considered in the following phase, and that therapeutic techniques will be developed in this regard.

If Imran Khan come back, he will destroy Pakistan : Javed Chaudhry writes in his column

 Imran Khan and his Tigers are also seeking a return to power. They believe that power is their birthright and that the state should return it to them in a tray.

In addition, they receive the Election Commissioner of their choosing, the Election Dates of their choosing, the Electronic voting machines of their choosing, the Constituencies of their choosing, the Electorals of their choosing, the Polling Time of their choosing, and the votes of the immigrants of their choosing.

What will Imran Khan do if he regains the office of prime minister with a two-thirds majority after all of his opponents have been jailed and imprisoned? I believe he will become of Bashar al-Assad.

 Imran Khan I know and the pattern of administration I have observed over the past three and a half years leads me to believe that Imran Khan is unhappy with parliamentary democracy. The NGOs view senators and representatives as blackmailers. They believe that these individuals create organizations and exert pressure on the government.

Imran Khan was not pleased to meet and shake hands with him, so as soon as he obtains a two-thirds majority, he will switch to a presidential form of government, amend the constitution, and make the president a source of authority. They will do it directly and, like the president of the United States, they will appoint anybody they want to the position of minister and remove whoever they want at any time.

After the reform in the constitution, he will ascend from prime minister to president and then appoint specialists such as Shahbaz Gul to his cabinet. Imran Khan is also dissatisfied with the Supreme Court. The money laundering of 24 billion rupees and the ownership of apartments worth billions of rupees in London result in the election of the Prime Minister and the Chief Minister. They are not even pleased with the Chief Justice and the judges' tenure. In his private discussions, Judge Faiz Issa regularly makes references to this matter.

It is evident that our administration has been unable to reach a rational conclusion regarding the presidential reference of Justice Faiz Issa; hence, they will alter the system of appointment and appointment of judges and assume the authority to appoint the Chief Justice. It will dismiss without reference any judge like Bashar al-Assad. Imran Khan is dissatisfied with the Army's tenure.

India has been invited by the Taliban leadership to reopen its embassy in Kabul.

Sohail Shaheen, a spokesman for the Taliban's political office in Qatar, said in an interview with Afghan media that if India reopened its embassy in Kabul, its diplomats would be given full security. India should build relations with the Taliban government based on national and mutual interests, rather than with previous Afghan leaders.

According to Sohail Shaheen, the government is responsible for providing full protection to all foreign diplomats serving in Afghanistan. In Kabul, many embassies are operating, and they have been granted complete security. Indian embassies and diplomats will be protected as well. ۔

Sohail Shaheen stated that India would be welcome to finish or start new projects in Afghanistan.

Suhail Shaheen, the Taliban's UN envoy-designate, told The Times of India that the Afghan government was prepared to create a "safe environment" for the Indian embassy in Kabul, and that diplomatic presence was necessary for improving bilateral relations.

The remarks were made on the same day that the United Nations Security Council accepted a resolution to establish a formal presence in Afghanistan.

The resolution, which avoids the term Taliban, will permit the United Nations to continue its "vital" work in Afghanistan.

According to information obtained by The Indian Express, a team of security officials flew to Kabul in February to evaluate the situation on the ground.

According to sources, India is considering reopening its embassy in Afghanistan soon, although without top-level diplomatic representation.

Realme GT Neo 3 in China in Naruto Edition

The Realme GT Neo 3 Naruto edition has just been released in China, and it appears to be quite impressive.

The smartphone's specifications are identical to those of the Vanilla Realme GT Neo 3 that was released a month ago, but its design is novel and intriguing.

The phone was created in collaboration with Naruto, a popular anime and manga series. In short, it is aimed at Naruto fans.

Masashi Kishimoto is the author and illustrator of the Naruto manga series in Japan. It tells the story of Naruto Uzumaki, a young ninja who wants to be respected by his peers and become the Hokage, the leader of his village. 

The smartphone's metal back is adorned with a "micro 3D" texture that provides a 3D effect to the naked eye, evoking Naruto's traditional headband.

The back of the limited edition is made to look like the main character's outfit in the Naruto Shippuden anime series. Orange is the primary color, which is combined with matte black and metallic gray. 

For its Naruto-themed special edition, Realme wanted to pay close attention to every detail. Therefore, the camera group, which is slightly elevated from the back, is placed on a silver plate bearing the Realme and Naruto logos. The Realme UI can also be customized with specific themes and backgrounds, as well as a replica of the main character, who uses the "Rasengan" and the five fundamental elements to initiate the 150-watt UltraDart super fast charging.

The special edition of the Realme GT 3 Neo is inspired by the Naruto scroll, includes a pin in the shape of the Hidden Leaf village logo, and includes special accessories such as a themed case and a 10,000 mAh, 33 W Realme 3 Pro power bank with fast charging.

As anticipated at the outset, the Realme GT Neo 3 Naruto Edition will only be available for pre-order in China in the variant with 12 + 256 GB of memory at a price of 2,799 yuan (the same as the equivalent standard variant), which is equivalent to approximately 390 euros at the current exchange rate.

Brutality shown by Punjab and Sindh Police has shocked Pakistan

Peaceful protest is the right of every Pakistani citizen.  However, this right has been taken away the current government. People called them dictators on the social media.

Brutality shown by Punjab and Sindh Police has shocked Pakistan. We all saw how they sprung upon peaceful protestors in Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad. 

Pakistan, an Islamic state, has a long history of torture and police brutality. 

Pakistanis showed their anger on the social media and demanded that policemen an officers should be suspended and prosecuted for their brutal action. 

We all saw how police forcibility entered PTI members’ houses and tortured family members including women and girls. 

 People are also shocked at the human rights organizations in Pakistan. They complained they have not uttered a word on the brutality of Punjab Police.

People wrote on social media that the brutal police action is unacceptable and called the current a fascist government and wanted it go. 

A twitter user commented that Punjab Police was waiting for their original boss to unleash their brutality. 

Some users commented this Pakistan or Jammu Kashmir.

A large number of people wrote on Twitter and demand that 220 million look to the Supreme Court and appeal to the honorable court to take immediate action on the brutality shown by the Police in the entire Punjab.

According to media reports two peaceful protestors have been killed in Karachi and one in Punjab. Police arrested women protestors with their kids. 

People demanded Imran Khan showed must take action against the people who ordered Punjab Police to taken such a brutal action. 

Some twitter users said that Police reform is needed. Yes, it is needed. Unfortunately, PTI government did not do that when they were in power. 

Neutrals mediate in government and PTI talks for economic stability: Asks PTI to return to assemblies for discussing electoral reforms and care taker administration

Neutrals (Army) had vowed to maintain their impartiality on political concerns. 

There are reports that Imran Khan has been advised by neutrals (army) that If they want elections, they should approach parliament and negotiate with the government. The army is concerned about the economic crisis faced by the country and wants to save the country from economic crisis. These reports clearly indicated that political crisis created by our civilians leaders forced the army to step in. 

Imran Khan has been urging neutrals to back him.

According to credible sources, independent groups have been in contact with government and opposition members in recent weeks to ensure the success of IMF negotiations. It was reported by the Daily Jang.com.pk. 

Who are these independent groups? 

In my opinion they might be members of the business community are concerned about the political crisis in the country and they feel that confrontation between the PTI and the government will only aggravate Pakistan’s economic woes. 

They wanted the government and opposition to reassess their political judgments in light of the country's dire economic.

News reports says that some party officials approached Imran Khan and requested him to delay his Islamabad march until the conclusion of negotiations with the IMF was known.

Imran Khan first postponed a decision regarding the announcement of the march, but eventually provided the date of May 25 and referred to it as the genuine independence march.

In the meantime, the impartial agencies contacted the two sides on Tuesday night, requesting that they meet and address the political issue, which has exacerbated the country's political and economic instability.

On Wednesday morning, both parties met. The coalition government was represented by Yousuf Raza Gilani, Ayaz Sadiq, Ahsan Iqbal, Malik Muhammad Khan, Asad Mehmood, and Faisal Sabzwari, while the PTI was represented by Pervez Khattak, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Asad Umar.

It was the first round of negotiations, and there was no breakthrough; nonetheless, it is anticipated that the two parties would meet again, this time mediated by third parties.

According to a PTI source close to the Establishment, neutral bodies advised Imran Khan to address his grievances directly with the coalition government.

It is anticipated that the next round of negotiations between the administration and the PTI would center on the PTI rescinding its resignation and returning to the Assembly so that a unanimous consensus may be reached in Parliament on the following matters:

1) Electoral changes, 2) Election date and creation of a caretaker administration. All political choices are to be decided by politicians themselves, according to PTI.

Book Review: The Love Hypothesis

Reviewed by Nazeha Maryam Jamal 

Olive Smith, a third year Ph.D. candidate finds herself in a ridiculous fake dating arrangement with Dr Adam Carlsen, a young, accomplished and handsome professor at her university. Initially she believes what everyone else at the campus does: that he is “unapproachable and antagonistic”. But gradually she begins to find that there is more to him than his broody, tall self. 

The Love hypothesis is such a feel good, witty and adorable rom com. It's obviously cliched and cheesy but those exact elements made me go gaga over the whole book. I found myself giggling like a little girl at all the “pumpkin spice” and “smart-ass” moments. Judge me if you will but I am a sucker for rom-coms and this just checked all the boxes for me especially because of all the early 2000s vibes. 

The characters and relationships in the book are extremely wholesome.  The friendship between Anh, Olive and Malcom is exactly the kind you need to survive your university life.  Holden, though his role was small, I loved how supportive he was of Adam and his happiness. Olive and Adam were such awkward cutie patooties. Finger hearts for them!  The last scene where he stood up for Olive reminded me so much of Cihan when he defended Haya. 

In conclusion, if you want to get over your reading slump or in the mood for something light and breezy, this is definitely the one for you.





1984 by George Orwell is set in a dystopian future which is not so far from our present. In both Animal Farm and 1984 Orwell has criticized the totalitarian and tyrannical forms of governance which tries to take away the power of reasoning from its subjects. Its was chilling to read each and every page because how can one even begin to imagine living in a world where thought itself is a crime. 

I am not going to spoil much but as I said its not that far from our present. We believe we have the freedom to say and do what we want but in reality, we are trapped. We are constantly under surveillance and the fact is that we choose to be (remember clicking on agree without reading the terms and conditions). We instantly believe everything that we see on the news and social media. There is a buttload of propaganda and information we are fed through these channels. You have got to read this as it will surely change the way you see the politicians you support. 

Can we please talk about this cover? It is by far the best I have seen and I absolutely love it. It perfectly describes the entire book. I also love the vocabulary of the book but I should say this that it is written like an essay or a long article. That’s why it took me a long time to finish as I was reading a little bit every day.
