Funding Announced for SydneyGlace Bay Multiuse Path

first_imgGovernment is supporting a sustainable transportation project to help build a paved multi-use path to connect residents, educational institutions, and businesses in the Sydney and Glace Bay areas. Energy Minister Andrew Younger announced today, Sept. 23, that government will provide $150,000 to Cape Breton Regional Municipality to complete about two kilometres of the proposed 10-kilometre Grand Lake Road Multi-use Path. “We’re pleased to be a part of this ambitious project,” said Mr. Younger. “This corridor will provide thousands of residents in the Sydney and Glace Bay area with more sustainable and active transportation options in their community.” The path will connect the residential areas of Sydney and Glace Bay to the Mayflower Mall, Cape Breton University, Nova Scotia Community College Marconi Campus, and the Douglas McCurdy airport. The three-metre-wide path will run along Grand Lake Road, providing safer and more accessible travel for cyclists, pedestrians and members of the university, college and business communities. “The Grand Lake Multi-use Path is the centerpiece of Cape Breton Regional Municipality’s Active Transportation Plan,” said Cecil Clarke, mayor of Cape Breton Regional Municipality. “We are pleased to receive support from the Department of Energy, which will allow us to continue work on the path.” In June, the Department of Health and Wellness provided $73,000 to the project under its Recreation Facility Development Program. In 2013, government also provided $124,750 to the project to begin work on a 600-metre section of the path.last_img read more

Some PEI business immigrants out of country over 100 days a year

first_imgClose to one in five immigrants who committed to run a business “within” Prince Edward Island for a year spent 100 or more days abroad, according to government documents for the last fiscal year.Despite the days away, they were not disqualified from the program and have been granted permanent residency with the freedom to move anywhere in Canada.The figures provided to The Canadian Press through freedom-of-information laws show the self-reported travels of 88 immigrants in P.E.I’s Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) who signed deals saying they’d run a firm for 12 months.The absence rates demonstrate the Island needs to move to match the higher standards of other provinces, a veteran observer of Canada’s immigration programs says.“Prince Edward Island just has to up its game here,” said Richard Kurland, a Vancouver-based immigration lawyer and policy analyst, in a telephone interview.The Island program requires immigrants to “provide active and ongoing management of the business from within Prince Edward Island,” but the contracts also say the newcomers are only required to show they spend half the year in Canada.One person deemed to be a successful participant in the Island’s program was gone 182 days, a day short of the maximum allowed.Another 15 were on the road over 100 days, while about 43 per cent — or 39 people — were out of Canada for 50 days or more as their business continued.The province’s Office of Immigration says the standards are being looked at, but there’s no firm plan for changes at this point.“Would we ever look at increasing the days requirements in our program? That is one thing we’re currently looking at, to ensure it’s properly aligned with the outcomes we’re looking for … as well as ensuring they’re properly aligned with our sister provinces,” Jamie Aiken, the director of the Office of Immigration, said in an interview.Aiken said some people in the program are involved in tourism enterprises that may require them to travel internationally for lengthy periods to drum up business, while some businesses may be seasonal in nature.However, Kurland says the time immigrants can spend abroad follows a pattern of P.E.I.’s standards being notably easier to meet than most other provinces, particularly those of British Columbia and Ontario.“You have looser standards, there’s little enforcement and the person (immigrant) isn’t as legally obligated as in Ontario … to do more,” he said in a recent telephone interview.Under the program, applicants provide the Island government with a $200,000 deposit, and commit to invest $150,000 and manage a firm that incurs at least $75,000 in operating costs.After the deal is signed, the province nominates the investor to the federal Immigration Department as a permanent resident.After a year, the immigrants can claim a refund of $150,000 if they met the business requirements, and $50,000 more if they could prove to the province they stayed in the province for the minimum time period.The province has already acknowledged that two thirds of the PNP businesses in 2016-17, a total of 177 people, didn’t receive a refund for the business portion of their deposit, with the majority simply never opening a business. The province has said most nonetheless have remained in Canada, though there were no figures available for how many days this group is spending in the country.Island Investment Development Inc., a Crown corporation which holds the deposits for the newcomers’ businesses, indicates $18 million in net revenues as a result of forfeited deposits in 2016-17 — equivalent to about half the province’s projected new spending on infrastructure projects.In most other provinces, the business immigration systems don’t work that way.In Ontario and British Columbia, for example, the entrepreneurs are granted temporary work permits and the province only sends in the immigrants’ applications for permanent residency to Ottawa after the immigrants are deemed to have successfully carried out their end of the deal.In addition, in Ontario the immigrant entrepreneur must spend at least nine months of the year in the province while they’re in the program — or 274 days.In Nova Scotia, a clause in the entrepreneur category specifically states that “the business must be actively managed by the applicant from the place of business in Nova Scotia. The business must not be managed from another location in Nova Scotia or from another Canadian province or territory or other country.”A spokeswoman for the Nova Scotia department said work permits can be cancelled if random site checks showed participants aren’t in the province.Kurland says Prince Edward Island has immigrant communities forming, and with some evidence newcomers are choosing to settle in the province there’s little justification for P.E.I.’s standards to fall below those of other jurisdictions.“If P.E.I. brought its standards up to the levels of other provinces, there’d still be no shortage of takers for P.E.I. business immigration programs … I don’t understand why P.E.I. is unwilling to raise the bar,” he said.The current system on the Island has also been criticized for allowing applications for permanent residency when a business immigrant arrives, rather than requiring terms and conditions of the program first be met.Aiken said no changes are planned in that area.“Coming over and starting a business is a significant undertaking. To have the comfort that your permanent residence status has been granted at the time of landing does present some attractiveness to an individual,” he said.Follow (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.last_img read more

Afghanistan top UN envoy speaks out against deadly army bus attack in

The top United Nations envoy in Afghanistan expressed his outrage over the terrible loss of life from morning’s army bus attack in capital Kabul, which is among deadliest the city has seen.”We don’t at this stage know the final numbers for dead and wounded but it is clear this attack is among the worst that Kabul has seen,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative Tom Koenigs said in a statement.The attack, which took place on a busy city street, was undoubtedly aimed at terrorizing the population, he noted.”Those responsible are evidently incapable of offering anything beyond savagery and murder.

Oregons loss from US tax law sets off political fight

first_imgSALEM, Ore. — President Donald Trump’s tax overhaul is a short-term boon for most states, but one is set to miss out entirely: Oregon.Instead of a bonus, Oregon faces a loss of $217 million in the two years after the overhaul goes into effect, the largest of any state that has revealed its predictions. Democrats created a plan to avoid losing hundreds of millions of dollars, but Republicans are using it to try to make political inroads in this deep blue state.The Democratic-controlled Legislature passed the proposal after a bitter argument, but weeks later it’s still awaiting action from Gov. Kate Brown, who has expressed hesitation about her own party’s plan. She faces re-election in November, and Republicans said the divisive proposal is one of their main tools against her.State Rep. Knute Buehler, a leading Republican candidate, said it amounts to “a massive tax hike.”The federal tax law that sparked the fight will mean extra money for most states. It sets up Maryland, Minnesota, New York and others for increases of a quarter-billion dollars or more and is estimated to give some increase to 14 other states and the District of Columbia, according to an analysis by the conservative Tax Foundation of the 20 states that have made revenue forecasts.But Oregon is left out, and the political debate over how to respond has heated up. The state Republican Party claims that the Democratic fix amounts to blocking a tax break for small businesses, while Democrats and nonpartisan state economists say it would not raise state taxes from what they were before the Trump overhaul.last_img read more

Link AKC is Your Dogs Fitbit

first_img Cesar Millan‘s famous formula for a happy dog is built on three things in this order: exercise, discipline, affection. I do my best to make sure my ten-year-old Jack Russell, Benny gets all of these each day. But like any dog mom, he gets lots of affection first. I have to admit I was a little ignorant to how much exercise a day my dog actually required; Caesar recommends 40-60 minutes depending on breed. Benny’s fit and a pretty healthy senior dog who is still a bundle of energy even now; I guess that’s the terrier. So even though he’s older, he still has the playing power of a puppy. That makes it a little difficult for me to gauge what exactly he needs.I wasn’t even sure where to start until I received the Link AKC smart collar. I was delighted to find how easy it was to set up and use. I have a Fitbit for myself, and it was almost exactly the same process. Setting up Benny’s profile helped me learn how much activity he should be getting a day. Low and behold it was about what has been recommended, 48 minutes.For just under $150 you get a gorgeous leather collar with the charging dock and the clip in for the Link tracker. The station the device sits in to charge your given the option to name. So once you’ve downloaded the corresponding app (and link it with Bluetooth), it will send you updates on when your pup is near or away from the station beyond just logging activity. Naturally, I named our dock “Ground Control.” ‘Oh, looks like Benny has returned to Ground Control.’ ‘Benny is away from Ground Control.’ Those are fun alerts to receive.With the app, you can also set and save ‘adventures.’ aka long walks or trips to the dog park for us. It remembers your exact path and even gives you the option to creates a photo album. So if your pupper is looking particularly cute you can snap it and share with your pals who follow you through Link.There are two features I really liked. The first is a flashlight on the collar, great for night wanders. The other is a low gradually raising whistle noise that can be admitted from the collar and controlled on the app. I’ve been using this to wake my dog from deep sleep some days instead of giving him a lil poke. It’s a much gentler way to stir him.Lots of pros, but what would a complete assessment be without discussing the cons? First, the actual tracker that clicks into the collar is very bulky. On bigger dogs, it might not be as noticeable or cumbersome, but on my terrier, it looks a bit awkward. It didn’t seem to really get in Benny’s way, and it isn’t heavy it just looks uncomfortable especially if it slides to the front. Also, the monitoring requires a subscription service. This is a bit of a bummer after you’ve already paid so much for the collar. But again if you’re concerned about your pet’s health and want to help them get or stay fit, what’s $10 a month?The other issue is the battery life doesn’t last very long. I get my maybe three days out of it before it needs to be charged again. I’ve found my self-charging the tracker overnight while Benny sleeps, but also so it doesn’t slide down and disrupt his doggo dreams during the night. If the charge held longer, it’d be helpful and less disruptive for tracking.pic.twitter.com/PkV4qKvTh2— Sheilah Villari (@KittinExploits) July 3, 2017Overall, I have found this collar helpful in making sure Benny meets his goal for daily exercise.  I make my steps with my Fitbit, and now he makes his too. It’s easy to use and provides decent feedback.If you’re thinking about getting a smart/GPS collar head over to our sister site PC Mag for their complete roundup and find the right match for you and your pet.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Corporate travel management brand Tripeur raises preseries A funding

first_imgShorebird Technologies, the makers of Tripeur, the third generation end-to-end corporate travel management platform, co-founded by Thiagarajan Rajagopalan and Sajit Chacko raised USD 600,000 in the pre-series A round of funding, led by Japan-based Incubate Fund. Angel investors from the company’s seed round such as Rajul Garg also participated in this round. An end-to-end corporate travel management platform, Tripeur uses advanced artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms to drive efficiency, ease of use and customisation for business travel by employees and executives alike.The funds raised in the seed round (earlier in Q4, 2016) were used to prove Tripeur’s platform capabilities and adoption by the market. The milestones set at the seed stage were met six months early by the company, which led to pre-series A raise and closure. The pre-series A fund will be used primarily for building the technology, sales and marketing teams of the company. Thiagarajan Rajagopalan, Founder and CEO, Tripeur said, “We are excited to lead the corporate travel space into the third generation by deploying latest innovations in artificial intelligence, machine learning and personalisation in various aspects of corporate travel space – be it for the traveller experience or travel desk automation or post-travel reconciliation. This round of funding will help our company to further our technology lead and grow our business manifold.”“Corporate travel market in India is huge but it is not digitised yet and so much inefficiency exists. Unlike B2C travel, corporate travel involves many processes such as policy implementation, authentication, booking, reflecting to the accounting system, etc. Thus, a complete, yet easy-to-use solution is required. Tripeur is an answer for this situation and we are so excited to join the journey” said Nao Murakami, Founder and General Partner, Incubate Fund India.last_img read more

But with films like

But with films like xXx: Return of Xander Cage, This was not just a movement to reclaim Iran? resourcesbut a progressive alliance seeking to revamp Iranian society and government The coup overthrowing Mossadegh may have ended the National Fronts reign in powerbut it did not destroy Irans opposition politics In the 1960sanother crisis over foreign exploitation triggered yet another demand for democratic change The measure that sparked the crisis was legislation proposed by the shah exempting the US military presence from Iranian law It was then that Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini stepped forth to lead a national coalition that quickly moved beyond Western encroachment and challenged the shahs rule The themes of American interference and the shahs dictatorial rule quickly mergedas democratic empowerment was seen as the true path to national sovereignty This same coalition later forged the 1979 revolutionwhose aspirations for democracy and the rule of law were usurped by agents of theocratic absolutism Like the dynasty it displacedthe Islamic Republic has been bedeviled by dissent By the early 1990san eclectic group of politiciansseminary leadersreligious scholars and intellectuals undertook an imaginative re-examination of the role of public participation in an Islamic government The challenge of the reformers was to reconcile two competing demands: On the one side was Islam with its holistic pretensions; on the other side was political modernity with its democratic claims In essencethe reformers claimed that these two realms were not incompatible in principle or practice This was a remarkable rebuke to totalitarian Islamwhich was increasingly serving as the regimes ideology The odyssey of the reform movement is as familiar as it is tragicas President Mohammad Khatami and his allies ultimately failed to adjust the parameters of Irans Islamist rule Howeverthe guardians of theocracy could not rest easilyas the reformers quickly gave way to an even more robust Green Movement In many waysthe Green Movement is a descendent and successor of all the previous political coalitions that have sought to liberalise Iran The regimeto be surehas managed to regain control of the streets through brute forceshow trials and repression Howeverwhat is important is that the Green Movement severed the essential link between state and society For longthe Islamic Republic sought to present itself as different from typical Middle East autocraciesbecause its electoral procedures provided it with a veneer of legitimacy That legitimacyalong with the republican pillar of the statehas evaporated For nowthe Islamic Republic endures The mixture of strident nationalism and Islamism that has guided its foreign policy for the past three decades remains intact But beneath the facade of order and stability the clerical state continues to face a deep crisis of legitimacy It is impossible to predict whether the Green Movement will revive But

they are giving sacrifices for resolution of the Kashmir issue The former chief minister has of late been making statements which are perceived to be closer to the separatists’ stand on the issue and also as an attempt to attract youth towards the National Conference Farooq Abdullah Sameer Yasir Abdullah who is the Congress-National Conference alliance’s candidate in the Srinagar by-elections was reacting to a statement of Prime Minister Narendra Modi Modi on Sunday after inaugurating the Chenani-Nashri all-weather tunnel the longest in the country urged the youth of the Valley to choose between “tourism and terrorism” saying “40 years of bloodshed” has not done anyone any good Abdullah said the youth throwing stones have nothing to do with tourism even though it remains the lifeline and primary source of income for Kashmir “I want to tell him (Modi) from this stage that tourism is our life and there is no doubt over it But the youth throwing stones have nothing to do with tourism They are not rendering their lives for tourism but for the resolution of Kashmir issue” Abdullah said while addressing the party workers in Srinagar “The youth who are pelting stones for the nation wants a concrete resolution that would accommodate the aspirations of the people of Kashmir” he said A political heavyweight Abdullah is fighting against a comparatively lesser known candidate Nazir Ahmad Khan of the state’s ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) The Srinagar Parliamentary constituency fell vacant after the sitting MP of PDP who later joined the Congress resigned from the seat The Congress and NC are fighting the election together on the two seats The bypolls in Srinagar and Anantnag Parliamentary constituencies are going to be held on 9 and 12 April respectively and a total of 15 candidates are in the fray Invoking God and religion Abdullah said Modi was not the one who provides the livelihood to the people “It is Allah who is providing the livelihood to the people irrespective of their religions” “We (Muslims) have never raised fingers over their religion (Hindu religion) Even sometimes I have myself sung their Bhajans They must not interfere in our religion” Meanwhile Dr Farooq said United States of America wants to act as a moderator between India and Pakistan in resolving the Kashmir issue but India always expressed reluctance in involving them over the issue He said intervention of America in resolving the Kashmir issue was ‘a welcoming step’ “America should act as moderator between India and Pakistan in resolving the long pending Kashmir issue in case the two neighbouring countries fail to resolve it on their own” he said On Monday Farooq Abdullah had sought help of pro-Pakistan Jamaat-e-Islami to fight and defeat Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) which he said represents "decades of suppression" of Muslims across the country and openly advocated the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir’s special status since 1947 It seems that Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has been put off his breakfast The media reports that sources at the CM’s residence claim that Chouhan “skipped” his breakfast after finding reports of trainee sub-inspector Anamika Kushawa’s death splashed across the front page of the newspaper Some lose lives some lose their appetite And that’s how it rolls in India Chouhan has vacillated between protesting “not all deaths should be linked to Vyapam” (true enough) and claiming credit by saying he “ordered” the probe with “pavitra intent” or pure intentions (more debatable) Remember Lalu Prasad Yadav also claimed he ordered the investigation into the fodder scam in Bihar But what’s indisputable is that Chouhan seems to be more aggressive about defending his besmirched honour than championing the cause of the families of the victims Conspiracy or not there are people dead and the Vyapam-linked death toll keeps rising A little more public sympathy and genuine concern would go a long way In a different time a politician would try to be seen close to the bereaved family as a sort of consoler-in-chief In Vyapam politicians are so busy trying to put as much distance as they can between the dead and themselves that kind of empathy has become all but impossible Forget empathy some of Chouhan’s colleagues seem to be trying to out-do each other in callousness treating the dead as little more than nuisance factors inconvenient headaches A lot of people associated with the Vyapam scam are dead and a lot of people are legitimately anxious about it Instead of reassuring them the state’s Home Minister Babulal Gaur sounds downright dismissive when he waxes eloquent that “death is a natural occurrence One who has been born will die It’s mrityulok” Asked if the spate of deaths bothered him he replied “Pareshan hone wale hote rahe Main to mast rehta hoon (Those who get hassled get hassled I remain cheerful”) Meanwhile his colleague Kailash Vijayvargiya adds to the general “cheerfulness” by joking about the dead journalist When he faced flak for saying “Patrakar vatrakar kya hota hai … humse bada hai patrakar kya" (What journalist are you talking about Is there any one bigger than me)” Vijayvargiya took offence and retorted “I was only joking and my sentiments are hurt” Vijayvargiya’s feelings are hurt Chouhan is off his breakfast And Gaur is cheerfully unfazed by the death toll And they wonder why there’s little confidence in the SIT probe under way Shivraj Singh Chouhan AFP But it would be unfair to single out Madhya Pradesh’s leadership for empathy deficit disorder This seems to afflict our politicians at large Especially when they come to power Mamata Banerjee as an opposition leader was truly the neighbourhood Didi She was the first one at the house of a victim of Left Front atrocity Singur and Nandigram worked so powerfully in her favour because they were exercises in empathy more than they were statements about economic policy The Left Front was left looking like the cold callous bully After an infamous sexual assault and murder case in Bantala allegedly by CPI(M) goons then CM Jyoti Basu had said dismissively “Anti-social acts like rowdyism beating dacoity happen everywhere This (does) not mean that the situation of law and order in Bengal is poor” Mamata sounds not so unlike Basu these days when she dismisses those upset with anything in Bengal as a conspiracy “Ami shuney niyechhi Apni beshi kotha bolben na chope (I’ve listened to everything You don’t talk too much shut up)” she once snapped at the village women in Kamdhuni surrounding her with their grievances about unlit roads and liquor dens Flashes of the old Didi surface as when the AMRI hospital caught fire and she planted herself there on a plastic chair supervising coordinating consoling But that Didi seems increasingly far away Sheila Dikshit too showed singular lack of empathy when it came to her initial reaction to the Delhi bus gang rape She told reporters that she had spoken to the transport department and cancelled the bus licence and if they wanted more they should talk to the police commissioner What Dikshit failed to understand was that the need of the hour was not the mechanical cancellation of a license but outrage shock resolve The people’s representative had failed to read and represent the people’s mood She never quite recovered from that moment of imperious disdain When questioned about a spurt of assaults on women an irked Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav told a reporter “Aapko toh khatra nahin hua (it’s not as if you faced any danger)" His father said those worried about crime in UP should just stay in Delhi And now the Law Minister Sadananda Gowda who had tweeted after the journalist’s death that he feels “really sorry” and it was a matter which “needs to be taken care of” has called the Vyapam scam a “silly issue" not worth of the PM’s comment What has become nakedly apparent is that leaders are so busy trying to save their own skins their response to a tragedy becomes entirely about passing the buck No one expects Shivraj Chouhan to crack the Vyapam case or Sheila Dikshit to nab a rapist in a bus or Akhilesh Yadav to ensure all women are safe in UP Any more than anyone expects Barack Obama to solve racism and violence in the US after the church massacre in South Carolina But when Obama delivered a eulogy and sang Amazing Grace he lifted the conversation up and used his bully pulpit as a moment of introspection and self-reflection naming each victim and declaring each “had grace” In Vyapam each victim by contrast finds their death dismissed diminished swatted away as irrelevant For the opposition it’s a political football For the government it’s more a liability than a casualtyAnd a Prime Minister happy to comment on everything else under the sun fails the empathy test as well by his silence here Vyapam is not merely a Madhya Pradesh story anymore than the US massacre was just a South Carolina story Obama was doing what a leader is expected to do – feel your pain And that is where our politicians have fallen glaringly short Whether or not Vyapam is a conspiracy or confirmation bias the political reaction reeks of amazing disgrace Bijan Dutta a 45-year-old businessman from Assam suffered from Androgenetic alopecia or hair loss to the extent of a barren head Upon consultation at a Kolkata clinic he was asked to undergo a hair transplant procedure Despite medication and nutritional supplements he was not able to retain this transplanted hair Dutta was offered a DNA analysis of his hair based on a simple cheek swab The test results gave the trichologist a clear direction to manage Dutta’spost-transplant clinical condition He recommended optimised doses of Minoxidil and Finasteride common hair loss treatment drugs Today Dutta has a head full of hair Sejal Khanna (name changed) a 42-year-old IT professional was concerned after she found fine lines around her eyes and mouth She also felt a slight loosening of her skin A worried Sejal wanted a focused therapy package that would ensure effective results A hair and skin DNA test is what she was prescribed Khanna’s DNA test brought to light the fact that her skin had started to slow down on collagen production leading to its looseness It also highlighted that her skin was sensitive to pollutants in the environment around her making her skin react to perfumes and irritants in the air Representational image Reuters Khannawas prescribed oral supplements to enhance collagen production and low sugar diet which reduces the chances of wrinkling She was prescribed the use of products with ingredients that specifically protect against free radical damage All of these helped arrest hair and skin damage extensively while restoring significantly lost hair and damaged skin DNA as well as gene-based testing is gradually gaining momentum as methods that help in two primary ways – curative – to deal with a specific issue on hand that may have remained unresolved despite multiple measures and preventive – to understand how pre-disposed one may be to particular ailments Delving into the DNA of hair and skin “Hair and skin DNA testing is about taking away the guesswork from treatment packages” says Dr Bani Anand founder and managing director of Hairline International Hair and Skin Clinic Bengaluru “Hair DNA analyses genes associated with hair follicular stress inflammation and growth factor It also analyses the client’s genotype and its association with various health conditions like hypertension and cardiovascular diseases Skin DNA examines 16 genetic markers across fivecategories associated with skin ageing Not every skincare product is going to suit everyone and so your DNA results are used to scientifically create a personalised regime tailored specifically for you” Besides customisation of treatment packages knowledge gained is also a plus point “A trichologist is primarily interested in learning about Androgenetic alopecia and a patient’s sensitivity to common drugs like Minoxidil and Finasteride" says Dr Abhijit Paul managing director of Dr Paul’s Advanced Hair andSkin Solutions Kolkata “A dermatologist is keen to know about collagen metabolism to identify the pattern of skin laxity ageing and to map the activity of anti-oxidant immune disorders phenotype etc” DNA testing helps with all this What your genes say about nutrition Nutrigenomics that is becoming popular in healthcare is a concept that is over 20 years oldwhen the Human Genome Project was completed Shah Fahad Husami managing director Adam’s Genetics Pvt Ltd Delhi explains that nutrigenomics focuses on understanding the interaction between nutrient and other dietary compounds with the genome at the molecular level to study how specific nutrients or diet affect the health of an individual The results of nutrigenomics-based treatments have been very positive and it is increasingly being recommended as a means of managing lifestyle diseases “As far as application is concerned it is going to be the future of healthcare management – especially for non-communicable diseases like lifestyle diseases – obesity diabetes cardiac diseases and certain cancers It is promising because it gives a healthcare professional an opportunity to look into the genes of a person where there are lots of clues hidden which can help an expert decide on diet medicinal and therapeutic approaches to better health" says Dr Amol D Raut CEO GeneSupport Pune A simple example Raut cites is that of Vitamin B9 or Folic Acid which plays a very important role in pregnancy recurrent spontaneous abortions and so on Whether to prescribe a folic acid simple form or a complex form folate is something that is based on a person’s genetics and nutrigenomics holds the power of being able to determine the right use of the vitamin The need for measured prescription of these tests Blood saliva or buccal swab samples are sufficient for DNA extraction The test report may take one to three weeks to come in and depends on the number of genes being tested All professionals from the industry believe that there are two principles to conducting the test Pre-test counselling – to understand the aim and objective of the person doing the test For example for an obese patient this form of testing should be prescribed only if conventional forms of treatment diet and therapy have failed The same principle must be applied for all cases The second is when tests are a preventive – in such as case anybody can opt for it to understand what they are predisposed towards and to take necessary precautions Raut believes that since genetic testing can result in the prediction of certain lifestyle ailments or the risk of such diseases conveying the message has to be done correctly else it may end up causing fear rather than awareness Trained professionals high levels of ethics pre- and post-counselling for evaluation and handholding will make these tests holistically successful #AAP will ramp up Government Schools to provide quality education #AAPKaManifesto Aam Aadmi Party
