It is no stretch to say these depravities are probably the tip of the iceberg. Statistics reaffirm the epidemic of bad behaviour. The National Crime Records Bureau records 853 custodial deaths between 2010 to 2018 70 of them in 2018 alone. At 1,636, the National Human Rights Commission puts the death figure much higher. For this, just three policemen have been convicted.It is common practice in police stations to ignore the statute, laid down processes and Supreme Court guidelines. So frequent is the brazen disobedience to the law that a lot of illegality seems to have morphed into accepted practice. A most dangerous illegality hides inside the encounter stories that regularly surface. Whether it is when dealing with so called insurgents, sandalwood smugglers, alleged rapists on the way to court, or most recently, the UP encounter of gangster Vikas Dubey and several of his accomplices, the stories have a familiar ring. The wicked were in custody. They tried to escape. A pistol was snatched. Shots were fired. The runaway was killed in self defence. A few policemen were injured. Fact or fiction, end of the story.

Shushruta specialised in ophthalmic surgery (extraction of Cataracts). Shushruta was one of the first to study the human anatomy. In the Shusruta Samahita he has described in detail the study of anatomy with the aid of a dead body. Shusruta s forte was rhinoplasty (Plastic surgery) and ophthalmialogy (ejection of cataracts). Shushruta has described surgery under eight heads Chedya (excision), Lekhya (scarification), Vedhya (puncturing), Esya (exploration), Ahrya (extraction), Vsraya (evacuation) and Sivya (Suturing). The practice of surgery has been recorded in India around 800 B.C. This need not come as a surprise because surgery (Shastrakarma) is one of the eight branches of Ayurveda the ancient Indian system of medicine. The Ayurvedic practitioner was called vaidya, meaning a person of profound knowledge, who made use of what is called rational therapy. He examined the individual as a whole and not just his disease, took a careful note of the patient s innate physiology, mental state, and other factors such as age, food habits, and season of occurrence of disease. The vaidya conducted a thorough examination using both direct perception (pratyaksha) and inference (anumana). In addition, oral or written testimony of the personal experience of Ayurvedic experts was also accepted as a diagnostic tool (aptopadesha). The vaidya was also expected to question the patient in great detail (prashna), conduct a thorough physical examination using all his five senses (panchendriya pariksha), and confirm or negate his diagnosis through experimentation (yukti). Laying much emphasis on the vaidya s knowledge of drugs, he was supposed to keep in mind both its therapeutic and adverse effects. The Vaidyas laid equal emphasis on the cure of disease as well as prevention and health promotion. They prescribed a daily and seasonal routine as well as attention to nutrition for maintenance of a balanced state of health.Ayurvedic preceptors conceived the role of a physician as much more than mere treatment of diseases. He was to help an individual reach the ultimate spiritual goal of self emancipation, which would not be possible without a healthy mind and body. He was to educate the people about health and disease, and be able to communicate with the lay public and the scholars alike. This required wisdom and skilled communication. Charaka says this about the goal of the vaidya, Not for self, not for the fulfillment of any earthly desire or gain, but solely for the good of suffering, should you treat your patients and so excel all. Those who sell the treatment of diseases as merchandise gather dust and neglect gold. The ancient texts talk in detail about the doctor patient relationship. A vaidya was expected to be friendly and sympathetic toward his patients so that they do not fear him. Charaka recommends that the vaidya keep his conclusions to himself to avoid potential harm. Ayurvedic texts prohibit physicians from private conversations or indulging in jest with women.
All of the players who arrived in Worcester yesterday have had tested negative for COVID 19. Due to the negative results of the test, six players were allowed to practice," Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) tweeted. On Tuesday, all these six players were tested negative for coronavirus for the second time in three days in Pakistan. The PCB had initially planned to send a squad of 29 players to England, but ten players tested positive for coronavirus last week. On Saturday, Wasim Khan, the PCB chief executive, announced that six of those ten players returned negative when they were tested for the second time.Both England and Pakistan are slated to play three Tests and three T20Is in a bio secure bubble, commencing from July 30. Pakistan had last played Test cricket in February this year against Bangladesh. They were scheduled to play the second Test later in April, but the match was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Some educators recoil at this statement, claiming that because they are educators they must remain politically neutral. But Black Lives Matter is not a political statement. It is an affirmation of the humanity of our students and communities. Neutrality on matters of justice serves only the oppressors. Neutrality in the pursuit of justice for Black Lives betrays the communities we serve.The recent nationwide protests in response to the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor by police have laid bare the profound societal inequities many Black Americans experience. While educators have been supporters of peaceful protests and advocates for change in police practices, as calls go out demanding we reform how law enforcement treats Black Americans, particularly young Black males, we must question what s happening to Black children in our schools and move beyond protest to action.
Profits are the likely motivation behind Apple s biggest moves for any publicly traded company s biggest moves even when those moves have altruistic outcomes like improving customer privacy. And Apple s main profit driver is vertical integration: the practice of keeping as many elements of a supply chain in house as possible to drive down costs, increase revenue and maintain a hold on the markets it dominates. Apple hasn t been very successful over the past five years with the Mac and most of the innovation has come from Windows vendors, analyst Patrick Moorhead told Gizmodo. I think Apple sees vertical integration as a way to lower costs and differentiate. We ll see. It s a risky and expensive move for Apple, and right now I m scratching my head on why Apple would do this. There s no clear benefit for developers or for users, and it appears Apple is trying to boost profits.
Pattambi (Palakkad): A young doctor has proved her talent in pencil carving by writing the names of 59 bones of human body on pencil lead within 13 hours.

An Ayurvedic doctor by profession, Arshiya was attracted to pencil carving after watching a video on Instagram. Thus she started practicing it since 2019. As she is busy at Shoranur Ayurveda Samajam as a doctor, she spent her leisure time for the micro art. After the lockdown was imposed, she got more time to practice.

London UK , June 29 (ANI): The United Kingdom''s General Medical Council (GMC) has suspended the medical practice licence of a British Pakistani doctor after he claimed that Covid 19 was a conspiracy to control the world.The GMC, which maintains the official list of medical practitioners in the UK, has removed Dr Iqbal Adil''s reference number from its website, Geo News reported."This person has been suspended from the Medical Register and may not practise as a doctor in the UK," the website said, adding that he was neither on the General Practioner (GP) register nor the specialist one."This doctor is not subject to revalidation (as) only doctors holding full registration with a licence to practise are subject to revalidation," the website said.Dr Adil worked in the UK as a specialist in colorectal and emergency surgery and laparoscopy, having graduated from Bahauddin Zakaria University in Pakistan''s Multan city in 1986.The doctor has peddled various conspiracy theories about coronavirus on social media platforms and in online interviews, claiming that the virus "orchestrated by the elite and is indeed a hoax".So far, over 10 million people have been infected with Covid 19 worldwide, while the number of fatalities crossed the 500,000 mark, according to Johns Hopkins University.In an interview to a news outlet, Dr Adil said he had been working for the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK for almost 30 years and was dismissed because of political victimisation, according to Geo News.The doctor, in various social media posts and YouTube videos, claimed that a vaccine was not a cure for Covid 19 while physical distancing was of no help as well to combat the virus. Almost all of his controversial videos have been taken down by YouTube.Following the suspension of his medical practice license, the doctor set up a petition at Change.org, which has got over 300 signatures so far. It says that he "is Chairman of All Pakistan Medical Association and Global Nishtarian Organisation (GNO) with a large number of medical graduates worldwide"."Mr Adil has a family with 3 children to support. NHS UK need doctors to work. It would not be in the best interest of the public and health system to lose experienced and highly qualified surgeon like him," it added while stressing that it was "an injustice" to suspend his license over "his personal point of view on Covid 19"."We request to the GMC to revoke his unfair 12 months suspension ... and allow him fair chance to work in this country (for the benefit of) the health system, communities and medical graduates at large," the petition further states.

The breathtaking vistas, raucous pop up campervan villages straddling mountain summit finishes and charming French chateaux will all still be on the menu for global television audiences, as will the party atmosphere for the millions of roadside fans when the race starts at the end of August.While the French custom of kissing in greeting will be barred, and social distancing still practiced, the delay has shaken up the format adding a dose of the unknown to an already cut throat three week race. Proof of the race ''s domestic popularity can be detected in the fact that France put a swift end to its rugby and football seasons, but the general and political will to go on with the cycling saw the Tour survive.
Mahadevan;s film is based on the real life story of Prabhavati Amma from Kerala, who lost her son Udayakumar due to police brutality in 2005.Citing the example of the killing of African American George Floyd by the police that took place in the US, Ananth said: "I think suddenly the rage against the police brutality has gone to its pick, a lot of protests are taking place worldwide. Whether it is in our country or in abroad, there are so many videos and news coverage we get to see on police brutality these days. Although it is not a new practice where innocents are brutalised by the police, the conversation around it has come into the forefront. "
