NewsNew Delhi: Former captain Sunil Gavaskar on Mondaygave a thumbs up to the selection committee’s decision to reward the domestic players while naming a new-look India squad for the upcoming limited overs series in Zimbabwe Led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni the second-string team will comprise uncapped players such as Vidharbha left-handed opener Faiz Fazal off-spinner Jayant Yadav Punjab middle-order batsman Mandeep Singh and IPL star Yuzvendra Chahal "It is good to see performances being rewarded It is not only about IPL Chahal the season he has played before he has picked up wickets He is another outstanding fielder" Gavaskar told ‘NDTV’ Sunil Gavaskar Getty "It is good to see performances in domestic cricket (being) rewarded You can always argue that IPL is also a domestic tournament but for me events like Ranji trophy (Syed) Mushtaq Ali Vijay Hazare these performances should really matter when picking a national team" Asked about the Pandya brothers — Hardik and Krunal — missing out Gavaskar said: "I think it is early days I think the selectors have done the right thing they want to see more of Krunal Pandya they have seen Hardik There is still little time for both of them The more experienced they get that will be better for them You can’t complain "Yeah sometime you may feel stuck IPL is a glamour tournament and lot of time people have been selected on basis of IPL and they were floundering in international cricket It is a different ball game So may be it is a blessing in disguise for Pandhya brothers" India’s Test squad was also announced today for the tour of West Indies featuring four games in July-August with uncapped Mumbai pacer Shardul Thakur being the surprise pick Talking about the selected Test squad Gavaskar said: "I don’t think there was much opportunity to make too many changes in Test squad In Tests the core has to be there for a year or so and having done so well in the series against South Africa there was not much chance to make changes "Because you are going so far away sometimes the selectors take an extra player It is good to see Shardul Thakur being rewarded for bowling his heart out for Mumbai in the entire season "For the last couple of seasons he has been amongst the leading wicket-taker for Mumbai and for the quick players you need to pick them early before they start having fitness problems" By: IANS | New York

abnormal decisions under chronic stress a new study has found Making decisions in this type of situation known as a cost-benefit conflict is dramatically affected by chronic stress The study published in the journal Cell states that impairments of a specific brain circuit underlie this abnormal decision making and could further restore normal behaviour by manipulating this circuit If a method for tuning this circuit in humans were developed it could help patients with disorders such as depression addiction and anxiety which often feature poor decision-making the researchers noted “We found a microcircuit of neurons in the striatum that we could manipulate to reverse the effects of stress on this type of decision making” said Ann Graybiel Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge the US The researchers believe that this circuit integrates information about the good and bad aspects of possible choices helping the brain to produce a decision The team conducted a mice study whereby rodents were allowed to choose between highly concentrated chocolate milk which they like under the presence of a bright light which they don’t and an option with dimmer light but weaker chocolate milk Before experiencing stress normal rats and mice chose to run towards the dimmer light and weaker chocolate milk about half the time As the researchers gradually increased the concentration of chocolate milk in the dimmer side the animals began choosing that side more frequently The results found that stressed animals were far likelier to choose high-risk

Baarday Donaald Trump’ as they fed a piece of cake to a poster of him holding a gun When the organizer of this event was asked why his Hindu Sena was celebrating Trump’s 70th birthday in Jantar Mantar he said ‘he is the saviour of humanity because he is going to rid the world of jihadi terrorism’ Then cries of Bharat Mata ki Jai rang out as this comical group fed each other lumps of cake Trump’s Indian birthday party was so hilarious that clips found their way on to YouTube and into the pages of international newspapers Under the hilarity there was a dark side to this celebration Trump’s popularity among Hindu fanatics is growing only because of his threat to ban Muslim immigrants from entering the United States It is not just lunatic fringe Hindutva groups that love this kind of talk but far too many elected members of the BJP They seemed to emerge in droves last week Almost daily we heard BJP voices raising an alarm against transgressions by Muslims that were allegedly causing Hindu families to flee a place nobody had heard of before called Kairana The local MP led the charge and when reporters including from this newspaper went to investigate they found that his story was a wild exaggeration This did not stop the president of the BJP from mentioning Kairana in his speech at the BJP convention in Allahabad last Sunday Why Does this signal a revival of the ugly religiosity that swept through the country in the days when Shri Lal Krishna Advani traveled on his chariot to Ayodhya to build that temple Is there a revival of earlier exercises in ‘Islamizing’ the Sanatan Dharma For decades ‘intellectuals’ in the RSS camp have been advising leaders of this ‘cultural’ organization to strengthen Hinduism by making it more like Islam It is a dangerously stupid idea because if such a project ever took off it would destroy everything that makes India’s religions so able to deal with change and modernity The great strength of the Indic religions is that they do not believe that theirs is the only truth and theirs the only God This must not change What must change is the attitude of political Hindutva elements within the BJP if it wants to win the UP elections Those who have been given charge of the campaign need to quickly discover that disputes over temples and mosques are no longer as important as they once were Young Hindu Indians have changed and are not even slightly unsure of who they are or what they want They voted for Narendra Modi in 2014 because he seemed to be the only political leader who had understood what they wanted He articulated this perfectly in the two words that defined the campaign in 2014: parivartan and vikas Unfortunately those two words have been heard too little from his party men in recent months The Prime Minister continues to emphasize them when he speaks but there are others who speak more often than him and they screech about Muslims beef and temples If there are those in the higher ranks of the BJP who believe that this will help win UP they are very very mistaken So if Kairana is the new battlefield to test out the campaign for UP (and it seems to be) then I am ready to stick my neck out and predict that the BJP faces defeat in India’s most populous state There are still some months left before the campaign really begins so there is time to put back firmly into the box the kind of people who stirred up trouble over Kairana last week There is also time to make elected representatives from UP go to their constituencies and build those ‘model villages’ the Prime Minister asked them to And time to prove that the other programmes he initiated work on the ground For his part the Prime Minister needs to put in place a team of experts who can take charge of transforming Varanasi in the next few months He could begin by kicking out the team that has been handling this so far because they have achieved nothing more than a few small cosmetic changes It is also time to put the cleaning of the Ganga into the hands of international experts with experience of cleaning rivers like the Thames and the Danube There is no point in tasking officials with this job If they had been capable of doing it the Ganga would have been clean a decade ago Meanwhile the Hindu Sena would do well to change its name to Trump Sena so they can stop making India look like a joke This column

said that though his government doesn’t have legal power in many areas they know how to get things done Kejriwal who is also the National Convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was speaking at the annual cof the party attended by more than 300 party delegates "We don’t have legal power but we are people from the ground and street If things can’t be done in that way then we know how to do it this way When we didn’t have power we used to get things done now at least we have some power" he said referring to AAP MLAs protest at the Lieutenant Governor’s office for "not passing" files related to Mohalla Clinics a flagship project of the Delhi government "One day all these MLAs went and sat at the L-G’s house and said that ‘sir either you clear the files or else we will eat here’ Later the files were cleared in two day’s time" Kejriwal said in his address to the delegates File image of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal Getty images "I’m not exaggerating but I can’t even appoint my peon all our powers have been taken away" he said Kejriwal said that the Supreme Court is hearing a case on power distribution in Delhi between the Central and state governments and added that if they get back control over the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) then they’ll show the Central government the grit they had in the first 49-day AAP government He said that when they came to power in 2013 for 49 days officers and police were not taking any bribe as the ACB was under the Delhi government but though the ACB was taken away from the Delhi government when AAP came to power for the second time "they couldn’t take one thing from us – passion" Kejriwal said that two things — Jan Lokpal and Swaraj— were their foundation but the party has not been able to achieve these He said that though the Jan Lokpal Bill was passed by the Delhi assembly it was pending with the central government "If Jan Lokpal is passed in Delhi then our MLAs will be trapped our ministers will be trapped our chief minister will be trapped it’s good for you (central government) so pass it But they won’t pass it because if it happens in Delhi then there will be demands from the whole country to pass it in their states too" he said By: Indo-Asian News Service | Washington | Updated: July 30 2014 12:11 pm During experiments researchers focused on a genetic mutation in a gene known as SKA2 Related News A simple blood test can soon reliably predict a person’s risk of attempting suicide significant research reveals This may be possible because researchers at Johns Hopkins University have discovered a chemical alteration in a single human gene linked to stress reactions The changes in this gene – involved in the function of the brain’s response to stress hormones – plays a significant role in the reaction to the daily strain into suicidal thoughts and behaviours During experiments researchers focused on a genetic mutation in a gene known as SKA2 By looking at brain samples the researchers found that in samples from people who committed suicide levels of SKA2 were significantly reduced “With this test we may be able to stem suicide rates by identifying those people and intervening early enough to head off a catastrophe” said study leader Zachary Kaminsky an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University’s school of Medicine Within this common mutation researchers found in some subjects an epigenetic modification that altered the way the SKA2 gene functioned without changing the gene’s underlying DNA sequence The modification added chemicals called methyl groups to the gene Higher levels of methylation were then found in the same subjects who had killed themselves Next researchers tested three different sets of blood samples The largest one involving 325 participants found similar methylation increases at SKA2 in individuals with suicidal thoughts or attempts They then designed a model analysis that predicted which of the participants were experiencing suicidal thoughts or had attempted suicide with 80 percent certainty Those with more severe risk of suicide were predicted with 90 percent accuracy In the youngest data set they were able to identify with 96 percent accuracy whether or not a participant had attempted suicide based on blood test results “We have found a gene that could be really important for consistently identifying a range of behaviours from suicidal thoughts to attempts to completions” Kaminsky noted “We might soon be able to monitor the blood to identify those at risk of suicide” he added in a paper appeared online in The American
