There is a lot of speculation over the number of lives lost due to COVID-19 in India. The government-reported estimates vary significantly from those estimated by the World Health Organisation (WHO). Estimating this number well is important for designing public policy measures to combat future pandemics. So, in this episode, we spoke with Mihir Mahajan, adjunct fellow at the Takshashila Institution, who has co-authored a paper that estimates COVID-19 deaths using publicly available insurance data. Mihir discusses the system for registration of deaths in India, and the reasons for undercounting COVID-19 deaths.ये पुलियाबाज़ी एक संवेदनशील विषय पर है। भारत में COVID-19 मृतकों की संख्या को लेकर कई तरह की अटकलें लगाई जा रही हैं। सरकारी अनुमान और विश्व स्वास्थ्य संगठन (डब्ल्यूएचओ) के अनुमान में काफी अंतर है। भविष्य में महामारियों से निपटने के लिए इस संख्या का अच्छी तरह से अनुमान लगाना महत्वपूर्ण है। तो इस एपिसोड में, हमने तक्षशिला इंस्टीट्यूशन में एडजंक्ट फेलो मिहिर महाजन के साथ बात की, जिन्होंने सार्वजनिक रूप से उपलब्ध बीमा डेटा का उपयोग करके COVID-19 मौतों का अनुमान लगाया है। मिहिर ने भारत में मृत्यु पंजीकरण की प्रणाली का भी ब्यौरा दिया इस पुलियाबाज़ी में। For more, read:Estimating the Impact of Covid-19 in India from Life Insurance Claims, Economic & Political Weekly article by Mihir Mahajan and Shekhar Sathe.

Some recent, and surprising, estimates from the World Health Organisation suggested that the UK fared better than Germany in the pandemic. But did they get it right? At Eurovision this year an algorithm was apparently used to replace whole countries' votes - was it responsible for the UK's second-place finish? The global economy has been putting the squeeze on many of us this year. Various factors have caused food, fuel and energy prices to rocket and many households are starting to feel the pinch. We speak to economist Duncan Weldon about whether this year is the worst hit to the cost of living since records began. An unusually large contingent of children are set to hit English secondary schools just as the number of 21 year olds dips – so are we heading for a teaching crunch in England?

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K367: About Japan - Japanese robot can peel bananas cleanly   Robots in Japan are found on factory floors carrying out simple tasks or delivering food to restaurant patrons but researchers have now unveiled a robot capable of executing the delicate task of peeling a banana without squashing the fruit inside. 日本的機器人常見到在工廠裡執行簡單的工作或是分送食物給餐廳顧客,但研究人員如今展示一種機器人,它能夠執行剝香蕉皮且不會壓壞裡面水果的細緻工作。 While the dual-armed machine is only successful 57% of the time, banana peeling points to a future where machines undertake more subtle operations than moving metal parts or delivering coffee. 雖然這種雙臂機器只有57%的時間是成功的,但剝香蕉皮顯示未來機器能夠從事比搬運金屬零件或送上咖啡更精巧的行動。 Video from researchers at the University of Tokyo showed the robot pick up and peel a banana with both hands in about three minutes. 東京大學研究人員的影片顯示,這款機器人用雙手在3分鐘內撿起一根香蕉並完成剝皮。 Researchers Heecheol Kim, Yoshiyuki Ohmura and Yasuo Kuniyoshi trained the robot using a "deep imitation learning" process where they demonstrated the banana-peeling action hundreds of times to produce sufficient data for the robot to learn the actions and replicate it. 研究人員金希哲、大村吉幸和國吉康夫利用「深度模仿學習」過程訓練機器人,他們展示剝香蕉皮的動作好幾百次來產生足夠的資料給機器人學習並複製這個動作。 Yasuo Kuniyoshi hopes the better-trained robots can alleviate Japan's labour shortage problems, for example at bento lunch box or food processing factories that are highly dependent on human labour. 國吉康夫希望這些訓練有素的機器人可以減緩日本的勞動力短缺問題,例如在高度依賴人力的便當店或食品加工廠。   Next Article:   Japanese ‘smart' chopsticks enhance food flavours to make them more savoury日本「智能」筷子增強食物味道 使它們更美味   Japanese researchers have developed computerised chopsticks that enhance salty tastes, potentially helping those who need to reduce sodium in their diets. 日本研究人員開發出一款可提升鹹味的電腦化筷子,有機會幫助那些飲食需要減少鈉攝取量的民眾。 Co-developed by Meiji University professor Homei Miyashita and beverage maker Kirin Holdings Co., the chopsticks enhance tastes using electrical stimulation and a mini-computer worn on a wristband. 這款筷子由明治大學教授宮下芳明及飲料製造商麒麟控股公司共同開發,可利用電流刺激和佩戴在腕帶上的迷你電腦來提升口味。 The device uses a weak electrical current to transmit sodium ions from food, through the chopsticks, to the mouth where they create a sense of saltiness, said Miyashita. "As a result, the salty taste enhances 1.5 times," he said. 宮下說,該設備使用微弱電流,將食物中的鈉離子通過筷子傳輸到嘴巴,在那裡它們會產生鹹味。他說,「結果,鹹味提升了1.5倍。」 The taste-enhancing chopsticks may have particular relevance in Japan, where the traditional diet favours salty tastes. The average Japanese adult consumes about 10 grams of salt per day, double the amount recommended by the World Health Organisation. 增味筷子在日本可能特別重要,因為日本的傳統飲食偏愛鹹味。日本成年人平均每天攝取約10克鹽,是世界衛生組織(WHO)建議量的2倍。Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1516060 ; https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1514949

China has been warned by the World Health Organisation that its so-called 'zero covid' approach is unsustainable. Hundreds of millions of people have been kept under lockdown in cities across the country, leaving the economy severely jolted, and critics calling it an abuse of human rights. However, the Chinese authorities seem determined to carry on as before, and have announced that the city of Shanghai will be placed under its tightest restrictions yet. The news came as a disappointment to Rebecca Kanthor, who has already gone through seven weeks of lockdown. Choosing what to wear in El Salvador can be literally a matter of life or death. The country is plagued by gang violence, with eighty people murdered over just one weekend this year. The government has promised a crackdown, passing new laws which allow police to lock up suspected gang members as young as 12. Mike Lanchin lived in El Salvador during the 1990s, and when he returned for a visit with his family, he quickly learned the value of covering up. More than five million people have now fled Ukraine, and have been taken in by countries across Europe. Switzerland has offered homes to tens of thousands, giving them an immediate right to work, and other benefits too. Yet this hospitality has left refugees from other countries questioning what they see as double standards. As Imogen Foulkes explains, plenty have run from war and persecution elsewhere, and yet have not found the Swiss to be quite so accepting. Germany has been commemorating the end of World War Two - a complicated anniversary, remembering both the country's dead, but with an eye to its Nazi past. This year's anniversary comes amidst Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and furious arguments in Germany about how far to intervene. John Kampfner was invited to one remembrance ceremony in the old East Berlin, where Germany's complex relationship with Russia was to the fore. Women's boxing celebrated its biggest night ever recently, as Ireland's Katy Taylor defended her world lightweight title against Amanda Serrano from Puerto Rico, at New York's Madison Square Garden. Women's boxing has always struggled to win recognition, but women have fought hard to prove it is not just a men's sport. Steve Bunce was ring-side at the recent bout.

We often think of burnout as something that happens in the workplace.For example, in the ICD-11 (International Classification of Diseases, version 11) the World Health Organisation defines burn-out as “a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed (see Burn-out an "occupational phenomenon": International Classification of Diseases).It [burnout] is characterized by three dimensions:feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion;increased mental distance from one's job, or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one's job; andreduced professional efficacy.But in today's podcast episode with Counselling and Clinical Pyschologist Katrina Streatfeild, we argue that the definition of what constitutes a “workplace” needs to be widened … a lot.Because burnout can affect more people than just those in paid work.So as a busy person, whether in paid or unpaid work, are you at risk of burnout?

What are happy hormones? A recent scientific brief from the World Health Organisation, explained that anxiety and depression had increased by 25% worldwide over the first year of the Covid 19 pandemic. The massive rise was mostly down to social isolation and multiple stress factors like fear of infection and financial worries. It's important to know that we can actually control our mood to some extent. It's possible to boost our so-called happy hormones in natural ways, by opting for specific foods, activities and behaviours.

It includes deaths from Covid-19 as well as those caused indirectly because people were unable to access treatment for other illnesses, such as cancer.

Nach einer Covid-19-Infektion fühlen sich nicht alle komplett genesen, die auf dem Papier als genesen gelten. Wer vier Wochen nach der überstandenen Infektion noch Symptome feststellt, leidet womöglich an Long-Covid. Bei vielen Menschen ist das allerdings nicht ganz sicher festzustellen, denn der Weg zur Diagnose ist steinig. Zurzeit sind Wissenschaftler*innen damit beschäftigt, das Syndrom zu verstehen, Symptome und Ursachen zu erkennen und auch verschiedene Behandlungsmöglichkeiten auszuarbeiten.

New Zealand has reported its highest daily death toll for Covid-19 so far, with 34 people reported dead on Tuesday.  Twenty-seven of the 34 who died with Covid over the past 10 days were aged over 70. While there were still over 17,000 reported infections, concern is mounting over the long-term effects of Covid for more than 600,000 New Zealanders who have contracted the virus since the pandemic began. New research from the World Health Organisation suggests a quarter of people who have been infected will continue to have symptoms for a month. Ten percent of patients will feel unwell three months on. And as Louise Ternouth reports, experts have warnings about getting back into exercise. They say the best we can do is not get Covid in the first place.

Indeed, it's the third leading cause of preventable death, and causes a large burden for societies across the world. Of course regular alcohol consumption doesn't always kill, but it can lead to other health problems, including neurological disorders. Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome is one such example.

She's an RN and has a masters in nursing, but two years ago she walked away from our corrupt corporate health care system.Today, Priscilla's focus is on helping patients rather than serving the needs of a hospital or the CDC. Every day, she gets calls from people looking for medical advocates. She serves as a sort of health care sherpa. She tells them where to go, and what to say and do to get the care they need. She works with newborns, with the elderly, and of course, with people of all ages who have suffered adverse vaccine events.Priscilla has become an expert at navigating around the protocols that hospitals are imposing on patients, the protocols that are forcing them onto remdesivir, then on to a vent, then into a grave. More than one guest on this program has described their loved ones being held hostage by the medical system, and Priscilla understands that very well. She also describes these protocol showdowns as “hostage situations.” And just like when terrorists take over a building, there are doctors and hospital admins out there who have no problem executing their hostages.Open Letter on the WHO's Pandemic TreatyThe World Council for Health (WCH), a coalition of scientists, doctors, lawyers, and civil society advocacy organizations, opposes the World Health Organisation (WHO)'s moves to implement a power grab in the form of a global pandemic agreement, while the world's attention is diverted by the latest crisis.The proposed WHO agreement is unnecessary, and is a threat to sovereignty and inalienable rights. It increases the WHO's suffocating power to declare unjustified pandemics, impose dehumanizing lockdowns, and enforce expensive, unsafe, and ineffective treatments against the will of the people.The WCH believes that the people have a right to participate in any agreement that affects their lives, livelihoods, and well-being. However, the WHO has not engaged in a process of public participation, which is evidence that its priority is capturing more power for itself and its corporate accomplices, than serving the interests of the people. Without an unbiased democratic process, any agreement by the WHO, acting via the United Nations, will be unlawful, illegitimate, and invalid. Historically, the WHO leadership has failed the people. Among many examples, it approved the injurious H1N1 (swine flu) vaccine for a controversially declared pandemic. Equally, the WHO failed during the Covid-19 chapter as it encouraged lockdowns, suppressed early preventive treatments, and recommended product interventions that have proven to be neither safe nor effective. The WHO cannot be allowed to control the world's health agenda, nor enforce biosurveillance. While it receives funding from public sources belonging to the people, it is caught in a perpetual conflict of interest because it also receives substantial funding from private interests that use their contributions to influence and profit from WHO decisions and mandates. For example, the Gates Foundation and the Gates-funded GAVI vaccine promotion alliance, contribute over $1 billion a year. I've mentioned before a proposal that WHO would be granted sovereignty over each country which signs this new agreement, in the event there's a pandemic. This is the dumbest & least justified collective health excuse I've ever heard. They won't know better than 190+ countries what's best for each of them. Don't let them grab this power. They'll never give it back.Dr. Mike YeadonChildren in China Diagnosed With Leukemia After Taking Chinese COVID-19 Vaccines“But after the second shot, the father could tell something was wrong. Swelling appeared around his daughter's eyes and did not go away. For weeks, the girl complained about pains on her legs, where bruises started to emerge seemingly out of nowhere. In January, a few weeks after the second dose, the 4-year-old was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.My baby was perfectly healthy before the vaccine dose,” Li (an alias), from China's north-central Gansu Province, told The Epoch Times. “I took her for a health check. Everything was normal.”He is among hundreds of Chinese that belong to a social media group claiming to be suffering from or have a household member suffering from leukemia, developed after taking Chinese vaccines.”Dr. McCullough on the PBD Podcast [CLIPS]Early Treatment Was Suppressed to Promote Fear and Gain Acceptance for Mass Vaccination“Those who are actively working the hardest to suppress early treatment are the same people who are working overtime to promote the vaccines. The two are linked!”The Authorities Pushing the COVID Vaccines Have Broken the Law“We have laws that say that for any biological product, it must be presented in fair balance. There must be risks and benefits. No one can bark a command, “Get vaccinated'… Our president of the United States has broken the law.”There's No Other Explanation – The Vaccines are the Causing Death“They coded the deaths. They said, ‘Did the vaccine cause [death] or was there some other cause?' 86% of the time, there's no other cause. 50% of the deaths occur within two days of taking the shot; 80% occur within a week.”Glenn Beck & Dr Malone discuss our trust in public systems is shot [CLIP]On the March 12th episode of “The Glenn Beck Podcast,” Dr. Malone walks Glenn through all the complicated science behind mRNA vaccines, where he believes COVID-19 came from, and what he believes should have been done differently over the past two years. He also offers insight into the modern propaganda machine that has corrupted the scientific community.We've destroyed the legitimacy of the American pharmaceutical industry worldwide and its integrity… We've basically given our pharmaceutical industry and our vaccines enterprise to India and China. The economic impact of this stupidness is profound.Dr. MaloneImmunity Boost Protocol from Dr SimonAfter many followers asked me to sum up which supplements should be taken to compensate for common deficits, I created a simple graphic on how everybody can boost their immune system without lots of effort.In addition to this, a healthy Omega-3 index is required.

Daily News Brief by TRT World

*) Kiev accuses Moscow of genocide after children's hospital bombed Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has accused Russia of carrying out genocide after Ukrainian officials said Russian aircraft bombed a children's hospital in besieged city of Mariupol. The attack underscored US warnings that the biggest assault on a European state since 1945 could become increasingly attritional after Russia's early failures. The White House condemned the hospital bombing as a "barbaric use of military force to go after innocent civilians". *) WHO reports 18 attacks on health facilities since war began The World Health Organisation has documented 18 attacks on health facilities, workers and ambulances since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the UN agency delivered 81 metric tons of supplies to Ukraine and is now establishing a pipeline to send further equipment. Tedros said WHO had sent enough surgical supplies to treat 150 trauma patients and other supplies for a range of health conditions to treat 45,000 people. *) Top diplomats of Russia, Ukraine reach Türkiye for trilateral talks Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba have arrived in Antalya ahead of a tripartite meeting between top diplomats of Türkiye, Russia, and Ukraine. The meeting will take place at the Antalya Diplomacy Forum as part of Ankara's efforts to mediate between the warring countries. Kuleba expressed hope that his Russian counterpart Lavrov will approach talks in Türkiye on ending the two-week war in a sincere manner. *) Foreign policy neophyte Yoon wins South Korea's presidency The opposition conservative Yoon Suk-yeol has won South Korea's presidential election, propelling a political novice to the helm of Asia's fourth-largest economy. After a bitter, hard-fought election campaign, Yoon, formerly a top government prosecutor who has never held elected office, was declared winner. "This is a victory of the great South Korean people," Yoon told cheering supporters, who were chanting his name at the country's National Assembly. And finally … *) Twin lions fleeing Ukraine war arrive at Belgian refuge A Belgian animal shelter has taken in two young lions evacuated from Ukraine, who it says Russian troops had threatened to shoot when they encountered them outside Kiev. Twin males Tsar and Jamil, born in January 2021, were due to be transferred to Belgium in May after Ukrainian authorities seized them from private owners who mistreated them. However, Russia's invasion of Ukraine meant the transfer had to happen immediately, with shelling of Kiev causing them stress and injury as they jumped against their cages.
