Within a day of reportedly threatening India with possible retaliatory measures if it did not release stocks of an anti malarial drug for possible treatment of covid 19, US president Donald Trump late Tuesday did a U turn, showering praises on India and prime minister Narendra Modi. I bought millions of doses. More than 29 million. I spoke to Prime Minister Modi, a lot of it comes out of India. I asked him if he would release it. He was great. He was really good. You know they put a stop because they wanted it for India. But there is a lot of good things coming from that," Trump told Fox News.
Trump also said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was great when he sought his help to allow exports of the anti malarial drug to treat Covid 19 patients in the U.S.On Tuesday, days after adding hydroxychloroquine to the list of active pharmaceutical ingredients that cannot be exported, India lifted the ban after Trump said his country could "retaliate" if it did not release stocks of the drug.
As a former public school teacher and a mother of five kids, I know how hard it can be to figure out what to do when staying home with your kids while you re social distancing. Many parents are now responsible not just for taking care of but also for educating their children while schools are closed. And many of us are also working remotely from home. These are really tough jobs we re being asked to do, and it s having an impact: Even in March, 7 in 10 adults told pollsters they were feeling personal stress and worry over the virus, and nearly 8 in 10 said their lives had been disrupted.It s important to remember that emotional well being both for you and for your children is just as important as education. Here are 5 things I recommend doing to help keep yourself and your children emotionally well and academically stimulated as we navigate this brave new world of social distancing.
Rumors have long flown around Area 51 CIA site, UFO dissection location, secret U.S. Air Force research facility? True or not, here are a couple of things we do know about Groom Lake. Soviet Airplane Evaluation One of the most successful foreign aircraft evaluations done in the United States was on the MiG 21. The MiG 21 a fighter interceptor that was introduced in 1959 and widely exported to countries with friendly ties to the Soviet Union. The MiG 21 proved to be a capable fighter in Vietnam, where it scored a shockingly high number of kills against U.S. airframes, despite being considerably older, slower, and less well armed. In 1966, Israel s Mossad Intelligence Agency arranged for a pilot in the Iraqi Air Force named Munir Redfa to defect from Iraq to Israel. Redfa was an Assyrian Christian who felt that his Christian heritage was preventing his advancement in the Iraqi Air Force. He was also a MiG 21 pilot. Mossad learned of his potential interest in defection, and in one of Mossad s most challenging missions, managed to smuggle his family out of Iraq to Israel. In a carefully choreographed mission, Redfa flew his MiG 21 from Iraq to an airfield in Israel, despite being seen on radar by Syrian air traffic controllers, who alerted the Iraqi Air Force. Israel used his MiG 21 to evaluate the airframe s capabilities and get a sense of what it was capable of. In 1968, the MiG 21 was loaned to the United States as a part of a Defense Intelligence Agency project called HAVE DOUGHNUT that existed for much the same purpose. The HAVE DOUGHNUT MiG 21 program took place at Area 51. A similar DIA program, HAVE DRILL, evaluated a MiG 17 that Israel had lucked upon, also at Groom Lake. Both the HAVE DOUGHNUT and HAVE DRILL programs helped revise the Air Force s tactics against Soviet fighters, particularly over Vietnam, where North Vietnamese pilots kills were close to on par with American kills and resulted in the creation of the famed Top Gun fighter pilot school. Stealthy Spies Area 51 also played host to a number of Air Force and CIA aircraft development projects. The U 2 spy plane, designed to spy over the Soviet Union, needed to be tested somewhere remote, away from prying eyes like a desert in Nevada. The U 2 s incredibly high cruising altitude, at around 70,000 feet, combined with it''s odd shape proved to be fertile ground for UFO hunters and conspiracy theorists. After a U 2 spy plane was shot down over the Soviet Union in 1960, the CIA decided that rather than flying out of the reach of Soviet surface to air missiles and interceptors, they d fly faster at Mach 3 . It was at Groom Lake that the CIA conducted the initial testing and development of the CIA s A 12, eventually the SR 71 Blackbird. The Blackbird s successor, the SR 72, may be at Groom Lake too. Although the SR 71 airframe had some stealthy characteristics, it wasn t until 1977 that the Air Force first truly stealthy design was tested. The F 117 Nighthawk, discussed in another piece, was the world s first truly stealthy design, tested at you guessed it Groom Lake. Still Important? In 2019, a Russian plane, part of the Open Skies treaty between the United States and Russia, flew over Area 51 and photographed the sensitive installation and a number of other secretive military installations on the west coast. It seems that Area 51 may still have some secrets to uncover. Caleb Larson is a Defense Writer with The National Interest.

After the advent of smart phones and smart watches, a new addition to the smart lexicon is the smart insulin pen. Simply put, a smart pen means an insulin pen that can record the amount and timing of each insulin dose administered by it and transmit the information wirelessly via Bluetooth to a linked mobile app.Presently, insulin users face three main impediments to have a better control of their diabetes ndash; skipped and forgotten insulin doses, inadequate increases in insulin doses and risk of hypoglycemia (low blood glucose levels). By creating an interface through which the pen can keep a track of insulin doses, store the data in an app and share the data with users, care givers and health care professionals, the smart pen seeks to create a diabetes care ecosystem that can track not only the doses of insulin, but also link up with the glucose sensor and suggest appropriate doses of insulin based on blood glucose levels ndash; in effect, a low cost insulin pump.

Now, I m not sure whether it was the result of some enthusiastic cornering or an itchy fingered scamp, but either way, the result has made my p ss boil.It s amazing how the whole car s classy nature has been tarnished because of a missing 49 part. But without this protective shield on, the Merc s wheel nuts are hanging out, instantly making the classy 20 inch multispoke wheel look a bit silly like going out to a black tie dinner but forgetting to put on your trousers while a testicle is hanging out of your pants.

We ve played it a few times on these pages, perhaps most notably with Mopar s 1,000bhp Hellephant supercharged V8. It goes like this we select the engine (usually with a ridiculous amount of power) and you suggest cars that would make a wholly inappropriate but extremely entertaining home for said engine. This time, though, things are a little bit different. That s because the engine in question is a new electric motor developed by an Australian company called HyperPower.
