within 2 weeks of an election led voters to favor incumbents in local state and federal elections at the ballot box giving some candidates as much as a 242-point advantage over their opponents The work suggested fans’ giddiness over their team’s win prompted a desire to stick with the status quo Now a study published online today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences finds no such effect The researchers used the same methods as the previous study but broadened the data set to include voters’ interest in specific college teams They examined football results and election outcomes between 1960 and 2014 where a Division I-A college team from a major conference played games in both weeks preceding a presidential senatorial or gubernatorial election in the college’s home state They then looked at voters’ preferred teams (based on likes of team pages on individuals’ Facebook pages) If the purported link was genuine and not just a coincidence the boost to incumbents would be greatest in counties where interest in college football was highest That wasn’t the case They also found no correlation in cases in which multiple elections involving incumbents in different parties occurred in the same place and year They even added National Football League games and team preferences to the list but again no link The original study design was sound the new study’s authors wrote but the findings “were a false positive that arose through bad luck” The ministry has asked DGCA to fix accountability and suggest appropriate action under its licensing and regulatory

In another experiment the researchers divided offspring of the butterflies into two groups feeding larvae either the same contaminated leaves their parents had eaten or uncontaminated leaves Larvae fed the contaminated leaves had even lower survival rates and more abnormalities than their parents whereas those feeding on clean leaves largely reverted to near-normal in both mortality rates and frequency of abnormalities The findings from Otaki’s group are “groundbreaking” says Timothy Mousseau a biologist at the University of South Carolina Columbia who also studies the effects of radiation on wildlife near Fukushima and Chernobyl He notes that there have been “almost no studies” on how ingestion of radiation-tainted foods affect wildlife Still Mousseau cautions that the results should not be directly extrapolated to humans “I think butterflies as a group are likely to be much more sensitive than humans to radiocontaminants” he says He adds that Otaki’s findings suggest that insects that survive after eating contaminated leaves might evolve tolerance to the low levels of radiation likely to persist in the Fukushima region for decadesWritten by Agencies | London | Published: May 3 2012 3:23 pm Top News Ashton Kutcherfor whom the new year has hardly been good from a public relations standpointhas now been surrounded by a racism storm after donning brown face makeup for a money-spinning appearance in a crisps commercial The 34-year-old actor appears as Raja 39-year-old Bollywood producer looking for love in the advert for PopChips In the dating themed film he says he is looking for the most delicious thing on the planet,s with the racist brownface video you talentless,Garlic supplements have been associated with a blood pressure lowering effect of clinical significance in patients with untreated hypertension, the BBC quoted researcher Karin Ried as saying “Our trialhoweveris the first to assess the effecttolerability and acceptability of aged garlic extract as an additional treatment to existing antihypertensive medication in patients with treatedbut uncontrolledhypertension” Experts say garlic supplements should only be used after seeking medical adviceas garlic can thin the blood or interact with some medicines The study has been reported in the journal Maturitas For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Express News Service | Kolkata | Published: May 23 2009 4:16 am Related News Ten members of a family fell ill and were admitted to a hospital after allegedly consuming poisonous food cooked by their domestic help on Thursday night Raju (25)a resident of Nepalwas working as a cook at the 26/B Creek Row in north Kolkata The family had another helpShivawho joined them six months ago and is said to be involved in the offence The duoalong with their unidentified friendwho visited them on Thursdayis absconding A police officer said the trio might have fled to Nepal after looting valuables Rishika (15)a member of the familytold the police around 930 pmher mother called her for the dinner Rishikahoweversaid she would eat later Around 1130 pmRaju came to her room to take away her cellphone When she questioned himhe threatened her and asked her to remain in her room Around midnightshe saw Raju and his friendwho had come to spend the day with himscale the walls and flee Alarmed by the incidentshe called up her friend Pankaj Jaina resident of Amherst Street He informed the police and soon officers of the Muchipara station rushed to the spot We found 10 people lying unconscious in the house Only Rishika and her younger brother (4) were in a better condition We believe Raju was the mastermind behind the plan?
