The word "alleged " has been replaced by "convicted " when it comes to Harvey Weinstein and his decades long reign as a Hollywood rapist. After testimony from actress Annabella Sciorra, former production assistant Miriam Haley, onetime aspiring actress Jessica Mann and others, on Feb. 24, a jury of seven men and five women found the producer guilty of criminal sexual assault in the first degree and rape in the third degree, marking the highest profile showbiz figure to be found guilty in the #MeToo era.But as the dust settles on the nearly two year legal saga, the question remains: Has justice been fully served? After all, Weinstein, 67, did not operate in isolation. There were agents who sent actresses into the lion #39;s den over and over again, as well as Weinstein lieutenants who summoned a taxi after each harrowing hotel meeting mdash; nearly all of whom still work in significant roles in the industry.
You may have heard of the stress hormone called cortisol. This hormone can be found raging in significantly higher quantities in high risk professions such as entrepreneurial work. Higher cortisol levels have been linked to not only increased risk for disease development, but also decreased efficiency at work. Thankfully, dogs have been proven time and time again to significantly lower levels of these disease causing, work and relationship hindering hormones.I think we can all agree that we can make time for a little more self care especially when it comes to exercising. The fact of the matter is, to be sustainable long term, you need to commit to a fitness routine that you actually enjoy, or else you 're just setting yourself up for further disappointment and failure. Taking your dog on a measly 10 minute walk twice daily can significantly improve the amount of daily calories burned. Dogs can be a constant reminder that no matter how stressful your day has been, you are blessed enough to get out and move, while others may only dream of having that luxury.

The debt market has seen various changes in the recent past. The sudden spike in retail inflation in December to 7.35% from 5.54% in November has surpassed the Reserve Bank of India s (RBI) comfort level. In the last monetary policy, RBI put a halt on repo rate cuts, after reducing it by 135 basis points since February 2019, but it maintained an accommodative stance and introduced measures such as long term repo operations. Renu Yadav asks experts if these changes will impact the performance of debt products, including duration funds, and if investors need to revisit their debt allocation strategyLakshmi Iyer, CIO (debt) and head of products, Kotak Mahindra Asset Management Co.
With this personality, Narendra Modi has changed the behavioural paradigm and image projection of Indian prime ministers. The Indian voter now expects their PM to be everything grand, to be the superstar who would entertain them at regular intervals. Modi now presides over India not as the prime minister, but like a king. For a democracy, this can be a burdensome legacy. Anybody who succeeds him may have to also enact the king size performances that Modi has set as a template. If the Delhi election is any indication, it does look like Modi is writing the playbook for other politicians to follow. L. K. Advani may have said it disparagingly when he called Modi a good event manager. But Modi owned it and turned it into his political canvas.US President Donald Trump ''s visit is no different. Wrapped in a fancy and glitzy show with massive crowds, it brought a city to a standstill, with a mega event and a much publicised roadshow.

In Mangango, eastern DRC, a small community of Batwa people has finally agreed to have the Ebola vaccination, after months of persuasion from the WHO risk communication team and their partners in the community. Esther Mugeni is in her 80 s. She s taking her grandson to be vaccinated. As a village elder, she s a highly respected member of the community, and vaccinating her family set an example for others. I think the vaccine is good for my grandson and for our health , says Esther. After all, he s my grandson. He cried, but I wasn t scared. I was vaccinated too. I m very happy because my children and my grandsons have been vaccinated. Like others in her community, Esther was sceptical at first. She didn t believe Batwa people could die from Ebola, she thought their traditional medicine could save them. She says the Batwa community face specific risks because of their lifestyle, which includes eating bush meat from the forest, a common vector for Ebola. Huguette Muluhirwa from the WHO risk communications team has been trying to persuade Esther and her community of the importance of getting vaccinated. There was a lot of resistance here , says Huguette. The village chiefs had reservations about the vaccine. But we helped them to understand and we succeeded in persuading them to be vaccinated themselves, to convince the community. The elders of the community were convinced thanks to the help of the local pastor, who agreed to be vaccinated before anyone else.
Fitbit, the American fitness wearables company that was recently acquired by Google, faces a serious challenge from Chinese competitors in India. While Fitbit has been around for a lot longer than its rivals, that does not guarantee success in the market. Companies such as Amazfit have launched several products over the last year, most of which offer more features and cost less than Fitbit products. No product is going to feel the heat as much as the Fitbit Versa 2, since it is one of the most expensive of the company''s wearables in India. Can the Versa 2 take on the strong competition? Let''s find out in this review.The Fitbit Versa 2 has a square face with rounded corners. The colour AMOLED touchscreen looks really nice but its thick bezels make it appear a bit dated. That''s not great for a premium fitness wearable. We had no complaints with the display itself though it can get pretty bright, and colours look very nice on it too. You can set the display to always on in the Versa 2''s settings, but this has a big impact on battery life. We'll talk about that in the performance section.
