effect” the Nationalist Congress Party on Wednesday for the sixth consecutive time got an adjournment to any decision on illegal constructions of 24 corporators belonging to different political parties Out of the 104 corporatorsthe NCP has the support of 67 corporators in the PCMC house Unlike the September 2008 general meeting when the discussion and decision was adjourned for six monthsWednesday’s meeting created a record of sorts: the civic administration’s proposal on the illegal construction was sidetracked for another one year This meansfor another one yearthe issue will not come up for discussionallowing the errant corporators a breathing space and face-saver at a time when the assembly elections are fast approaching The Asheesh Sharma-led civic administration remained a mere spectator as the NCP had its wayfull throttle The issue came to the fore during Dilip Band regime last year after a citizen moved an RTI application before the civic body In reply to a querythe civic administration revealed that 24 corporatorsmost of whom are from NCPhad premises where illegal constructions existed The issue was placed before the general body meeting by Band in March 2008 The GB kept adjourning the issue till September when it was kept aside for six months And nowthere will be “nothing done” for another one year Commissioner Sharmawho is under pressure to let the law of the land prevailsaid he will now send the general body’s decision to the state government for its advice “We will wait for the further government instructions in the matter” Sharma said his administration is determined to pull down the structures that have come up on land reserved in the development plan “This will have to be done as per the Bombay high court order in the Phugewadi case But such cases are only in relation to a couple of corporators who have made constructions on reserved DP land Most of them have built an additional floor or resorted to an illegal extension Now since the GB has adjourned the issuewe will sent it to the state government for its opinion” Sharma said City engineer Eknath Ugilewhose office had the put forth the proposalsaid he can do little since the GB has adjourned the issue Mayor Aparna Dokewho was elected on an NCP ticketsaid the decision to adjourn issue was taken as majority of the corporators were in favour of it “Some of the corporators opposed the decision Their remarks have been put on record But a majority were in favour of adjourning the issue for one year” Doke said Doke said there is an option of gunthewari for regularising the illegal structures Municipal secretary Sharad Kale said the corporators can keep adjourning the issue till they want “Since the general body is the highest bodyit has the powers to discuss and take decision or ignore it” he said Independent corporator Maruti Bhapkar said under Sections 11 and 12 of the BPMC Actonce the GB approves the proposal it will have to be sent to a court which will take a decision in the matter “But it is clear that corporators are afraid of letting the matter go to the court as they know the judiciary is very strict in matters of illegal constructions as happened in Phugewadi case” At Wednesday’s general body meetingsenior NCP corporator Yogesh Behl put up a “solid” defence for the errant corporators “They have not committed any crimeneither have they committed any sin” Behl went on and onmuch to the delight of the 24 corporators In contrastNCP house leader Jagdish Shetty did not utter a word Neither did he support the corporators nor did he oppose the adjournment motion Shiv Sena corporators Seema Savle and Sulbha Ubale demanded that instead of postponing the issue repeatedly with out any decisionit should be settled once and for all “Send home the corporators who had erred” Savle said “Even those errant corporators were demanding that the issue should not be prolonged for long” Savle said For all the

7 as a smartphone is in serious trouble Global sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note 7 have been halted by the company The South-Korean tech giant is now asking people to return their phones old or the replacement ones Samsung’s latest advisory says this to customers who are still holding on to their Note 7 “Consumers with either an original Galaxy Note7 or replacement Galaxy Note7 device should power down and stop using the device and take advantage of the remedies available” But there are questions being raised over how Samsung has dealt with this entire issue For starters the latest statement still doesn’t mention the word ‘official recall’ which is important because a recall implies that it is mandatory to turn in the device Samsung’s latest statement reads like this “We are working with relevant regulatory bodies to investigate the recently reported cases involving the Galaxy Note7 Because consumers’ safety remains our top priority Samsung will ask all carrier and retail partners globally to stop sales and exchanges of the Galaxy Note7 while the investigation is taking place…We remain committed to working diligently with appropriate regulatory authorities to take all necessary steps to resolve the situation” Also read: Samsung continues to burn its hands with the Galaxy Note 7 So yes Samsung admits it is investigating the issue of the Galaxy Note 7 catching fire it simply says sales and exchanges are stopped while the investigation continues There’s no mention of an official recall which is crucial when a smartphone poses an actual burning/explosion risk Samsung’s replacement Note 7 was supposed to be safe but that hasn’t been the case and five phones have caught fire in the US So it is hard to believe that the company has managed to solve the issue The new replacement phones were supposed to come with a ‘green battery’ indicator to show they are safe but that hasn’t done any good And it seems even the way the exchange program was handled by Samsung didn’t do much to help customers either Emails from Samsung to customers looking to get a refund for their Note 7 highlight how badly this issue has been managed from the start The Verge has published an email sent by a Samsung representative to a customer trying to get their Note 7 exchanged which shows just how confused things are internally Read more: Samsung to halt global sales exchanges of Galaxy Note 7 In the email the customer representative admits there are issues with the exchange with people receiving emails with a different order number Samsung’s email also says the exchange program is headed by a “company that specializes in recalls” and it mentions the special packaging to send the old phone back is being mailed at a different time The email says “You will not receive them (packaging and new phone) together they may arrive at different times but you will not have to return the old phone before they begin to process the new phone If you opt for a refund instead it will be just as previous refunds were Once the item is returned they will process your refund” Samsung also says in the email they can’t check the status of the refund since it is being handled by a different company What is damning is this sentence “We have limited information on a lot of the process at this time” No better indicator that Samsung has bungled this exchange and the Galaxy Note 7 as a product entirely Seriously those who still have the Galaxy Note 7 should power it down immediately and not try and switch it back on while you figure out the exchange/return process Given Samsung has gotten it wrong with the phone a second time it’s hard to see people going back to this phone a third time For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top NewsStrokes kill someone every 4 minutes To determine your risk doctors measure certain characteristics of your heart such as its size and pumping strength However researchers haven’t had the tools to study how disease-induced structural changes in the heart might be affecting heart function and blood flow Now an interdisciplinary team of scientists says it has found a new way to analyze blood flow through one of the heart’s upper blood collection chambers—the left atrium—which could lead to a better way to assess stroke risk in patients The researchers used specialized computerized tomography scans to build visualizations of cardiac blood flow in two hearts: one with healthy blood flow (above) and another with abnormal blood flow because of heart disease Their modeling shows that in the healthy heart blood flows through the left atrium in a tight corkscrew shape which allows blood to quickly exit that structure However in the enlarged diseased heart this corkscrew shape never fully forms which causes blood to linger in the left atrium As a result the blood is more likely to pool there forming a stroke-causing clot the team reports this month in the Annals of Biomedical Engineering The scientists hope that future work will enable them to equip medical practitioners with the ability to use computerized personal cardiac blood flow visualizations to assess stroke risk in their patients The incident has been brought to my notice.

and wheezing may actually protect you Researchers report that mice that develop an allergic response to the venom in honey bee stings are more likely to survive potentially lethal doses of the same venom later on The findings show that allergy can be beneficial and reveal some of the molecular machinery at work but experts say the implications for humans are still unclear In humans and other mammals the immune system fends off unfamiliar and potentially harmful substances such as viruses or toxins in one of two ways The so-called “type 1” reaction responds to viruses bacteria and other microbes by destroying them while the “type 2” reaction uses an array of symptoms—including sneezing coughing and diarrhea—to expel allergens from the body Because the type 2 response and the antibody it produces immunoglobulin E (IgE) have been associated with resistance to worm infections many scientists think that they evolved to protect against parasites (as opposed to microbes) but that they have no modern-day protective purpose In the parasite-free developed world they run rampant reacting to benign substances such as pollen or peanuts with annoying or in the case of anaphylactic shock (an extreme allergic reaction that can cause severe swelling and difficulty breathing) life-threatening consequences Or so the prevailing theory goes But pathologist Stephen Galli of the Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto California thought type 2 responses had gotten a bad rap To explore the effects—and tease out potential benefits—of type 2 reactions he and his colleagues exposed mice to a common allergen: honey bee venom They administered a dose of the venom—about as much as found in one or two bee stings—to two strains of mice: a type 1 response-prone strain and a type 2 response-prone strain Two control groups of the same strains received no injections Regardless of their predisposition to type 1 or 2 reactions both of the “stung” mouse groups showed a type 2 response ramping up their production of IgE antibodies specific to the venom Then 3 weeks later the researchers gave all the mice a potentially lethal dose of the venom and waited to see what would happen “It was an answer an allergist wouldn’t expect” Galli says “The second time around the mice were protected” Eighty-six percent of the type 1-prone mice that had had an allergic reaction survived the dose versus only 7% of the mice that weren’t allergic Among the type 2-prone mice 80% of the allergic mice survived whereas only 28% of the nonallergic mice did The scientists saw a similar protective effect when they repeated the experiment using snake venom which contains some of the same allergens found in bee venom The antibodies protected the mice even when the rodents hadn’t produced them Injecting IgE-deficient mice with venom-specific IgE-rich blood serum was sufficient to confer protection Galli says And repeating the experiment in mice lacking IgE or the ability to respond to it showed no protective effect The results suggest that type 2 responses may have evolved to protect against venoms as well as parasites and that they’re still serving this function the team reports today in the journal Immunity The defense mechanism might have helped humans survive in the challenging conditions in which we evolved Galli says “We spent a long time encountering venomous insects and reptiles and it’s likely that this defense mechanism made that possible” In a separate study also published today in Immunity immunologist Ruslan Medzhitov of the Yale University School of Medicine and colleagues confirm that mice with a previous type 2 response to bee venom have a greater resistance to potentially lethal doses of the stuff later on and that IgE-lacking mice miss out on this protective effect What’s more the team tracked down the venom ingredient that triggers the allergy—an enzyme called PLA2 that damages cell membranes and is found in the venoms of snakes spiders and many other creatures The researchers worked out each step in the chain of events that leads to the type 2 reaction The immune system sends out a surge of chemical messengers called cytokines to repair the damage done by PLA2 and that activates the type 2 response Medzhitov says “As far as I know this is the first direct evidence that IgE-mediated responses can be protective and beneficial” Medzhitov says “It’s like the sensation of pain: It’s very unpleasant but very important for our protection” “These are very compelling excellent studies” says immunogeneticist Kathleen Barnes of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore Maryland who was not involved in either study “but we need to exercise caution in applying these findings in humans” Human type 2 responses pose a number of mysteries she says It is unclear for example whether people with strong type 2 responses who are prone to allergies enjoy stronger resistance to venoms than the rest of us or why type 2 response can cause life-threatening symptoms in certain individuals The studies offer important new information but leave these questions unanswered she says Immunologist Fred Finkelman of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in Ohio agrees “Together these studies round out our understanding of the evolution of the allergic response” he says “But this is more the beginning of the story than the end of it” Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore feels the film industry is likely to benefit from demonetisation Related News Union Minister of State for Information and
