upper-class India half a century ago: the picnics the mango-eating contests guns and shikar discipline-mad ‘convent’ schools the ridiculous cult of quasi-military masculinity left behind by the Raj

unregulated “While green tea could have health benefits at low doses our study and others have shown that at high doses it may have adverse effects” said Mahtab Jafari associate professor of

on the development and reproduction in fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster Embryos and larvae were subjected to various doses of green tea polyphenols Larvae exposed to 10mg of green tea were slower to develop were born smaller and exhibited a dramatic decline in the number of emerged offspring Ten milligrams of green tea made the flies more susceptible to starvation and heat stress but protected them against dehydration Female offspring showed decreased reproductive output and a 17 per cent reduction in lifespan while males were unaffected the study found Ten milligrams of green tea caused

is somewhere between 15 to 20 pages (Source: File Photo) Top News The greatest challenge for a short story writer says one of the foremost names in the field — who might not be too well known in India but has built up an impressive resume in the US — is to stick to its ideal length with the writer captivating his readers in a way that they have no desire for more “Knowing that a story is only 15 or 20 pages means that you are restricted in how many characters you can have or situations you can entertain This means that the entry into the story has to be so strong that the reader has no desire for more” Akhil Sharma told IANS in an email interview from New York The writer stressed upon the fact that the ideal length of a short-story is somewhere between 15 to 20 pages He maintained that once a writer goes beyond this length the stories begin to take the shape of novellas But temptation is always lurking around the corner “The problem is that characters can be so compelling that one feels the need to follow them” he quipped Delhi-born Sharma who emigrated to the United States in 1979 is certainly not among the most well-known faces of our literary fraternity but the illustrious career of this prolific author is still a distant dream for many writers His stories have been published in the New Yorker and Atlantic Monthly and included in “The Best American Short Stories” and “O Henry Prize Collections” Sharma’s first book “An Obedient Father” won the PEN/Hemingway Award in 2001 His second novel “Family Life” won the Folio Prize in 2015 and the International Dublin Literary Award in 2016 “I began writing ‘We Didn’t Like Him’ the day after I handed in my novel ‘Family Life’ I began it with the idea that I just wanted a story with a beginning middle and end I had the opening line and I had an idea for someone who wants to be a televangelist “I then just began describing the character and trying to make him sympathetic Part of this meant inventing his back story and what would be natural for him as his life progressed I wrote one ending and it didn’t satisfy me and so I wrote another” the author said on being asked to throw light on the journey of a short story — from the time of its inception to its fulfilment “We Didn’t Like Him” along with seven others comprise his latest book Titled “A Life of Adventure and Delight” (Penguin/Rs 599/190 Pages) the book is a collection of stories that focus on Indians at home and abroad and plunge the reader into what Sharma calls the unpredictable workings of the human heart Sharma said that he loves short stories “They are demanding and fun and there is the sense that unlike a novel one is not held hostage by them” he elaborated The author further shared that his short stories have become looser with time “They cover longer periods I find that the transition between my paragraphs is not as tight More and more I think short stories are simply narratives where an event occurs and a character changes or does not change even though we would expect him to” he contended Sharma hoped that short stories are published in newspapers like they used to be in the past adding that they have a specific place in the world and will always remain relevant For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe first pigs infected with the H1N1 influenza sweeping the globe have been found—but they’re a long way from Mexico the suspected origin of the virus There’s also some optimism that the human outbreak of the virus is not as threatening as earlier feared The H1N1 influenza strain that as of today has caused 898 cases in humans living in 18 countries has finally been isolated from pigs Canadian officials announced last night The virus had never been found in pigs until now A farm in Alberta Canada became concerned about sick pigs on 24 April and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has since determined that the virus has infected 220 pigs out of a herd of 2200 animals (An exclusive transcript of a press conference last night with Canadian health officials is after the jump) The agency suspects that a farm worker who returned to Canada from Mexico on 12 April and went back to work 2 days later infected the pigs Canadian researchers who did a genetic analysis of the virus in the pig found that it closely matches the H1N1 in humans This type of transmission of a swine influenza may be a first says Christopher Olsen a swine influenza researcher at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Wisconsin Madison "I honestly can’t think of an instance where we saw a swine virus move to humans and move back in this fashion" There is much concern that pigs infected with this H1N1 might become infected with a dangerous influenza virus from fowl like the H5N1 that causes avian influenza leading to a dangerous superbug But Olsen says this is unlikely on large hog farms "Most modern swine production facilities are single species The days of a small farmer having pigs and fowl and other animals all mixing together is really unusual in terms of modern commercial swine My opinion is modern swine facilities have better biosecurity than old-time farms" Olsen also stresses that this finding is more a curiosity than a game changer "This is an interesting event from a scientific perspective but I don’t think it changes the current public health priorities at all” The Canadian finding also dominated a press conference held in Geneva this afternoon by the World Health Organization (WHO) “It is not a big surprise” said Peter Ben Embarek a WHO food safety scientist “We expected at some point since this virus has swine virus elements that we would find possible virus in pigs in the region where the virus is circulating” said Embarek Canada has quarantined the farm to prevent further spread Embarek emphasized repeatedly that eating pork does not transmit the virus and that it only presents a danger to pig farmers and slaughterhouses The farm worker has recovered Embarek noted “Also for the animal population it doesn’t seem to be a very serious disease” he said WHO has not yet raised the threat level from phase 5 to phase 6 which would indicate that the H1N1 outbreak is a pandemic For that to happen a country in a region outside of the Americas would have to document sustained spread between humans in a community The Mexican Health Minister José ngel Córdova yesterday said that he believed the outbreak in his country was stabilizing Mexico now has confirmed 506 cases and 19 deaths But in a press conference held by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Anne Schuchat the interim deputy director for science and public health cautioned people to keep the champagne bottles corked “I don’t think we’re out of the woods yet” said Schuchat Much is still unknown about the virus’s spread or severity she stressed adding that they cannot predict what it will do in the future “We don’t know if the virus will return in the fall and come back harder than it is right now and of course that’s one of the big concerns” CDC now reports 226 confirmed US cases and 30 hospitalizations a dramatic increase from yesterday that she said reflects that health officials are catching up with the backlog of samples rather than an increase in the disease’s spread or its severity In part this rise is because along with CDC many state labs can now conduct confirmatory tests “We know there are lots of probable cases out there” said Schuchat “I expect numbers to jump quite a bit in the next few days” Transcript of News Conference – Honourable Leona Aglukkaq Minister of Health – May 2 2009 – 6:00 pm TRANSCRIPTION/TRANSCRIPTIONEVENT/VNEMENT DATE/DATE:??
