cancer and grandmother and aunt to breast cancer (Source: File photo) Top News Hollywood actor Angelina Jolie’s public disclosure in 2013 regarding her surgery for breast cancer led to a spike in genetic tests for a gene known to increase the deadly disease a study has found Jolie lost her mother to ovarian and breast cancer and grandmother and aunt to breast cancer In an op-ed piece in The New York Times — a major US daily — Jolie announced that she had undergone surgery in order to reduce her chances of getting the disease “My doctors estimated that I had an 87 per cent risk of breast cancer and a 50 per cent risk of ovarian cancer…I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy” wrote Jolie in the article on May 14 2013 Watch What Else Is Making News: According to the study led by researchers from Harvard Medical School in Boston US the rates of genetic testing for breast cancer increased by 64 per cent in the two weeks following Jolie’s testimonial However the rates of mastectomy did not increase among women who underwent BRCA gene testing This suggests those who received the genetic test had a low risk of carrying the mutation in the first place the researchers said The results illustrate that celebrity endorsements can fuel the use of health care services but may not effectively target the populations in greatest need of such services “Our findings underscore celebrity endorsements as a powerful influence on health-related behaviours but they also show that such endorsements do not necessarily target those most at risk for developing a disease” said lead investigator Sunita Desai from Harvard Medical School in Boston US When people request a test or an intervention based on a celebrity endorsement it is critical that physicians provide careful assessment of a patient’s medical and family history with clear explanations about the pros and cons of choosing to have the test versus foregoing testing in the context of the individual’s specific circumstances the researchers suggested in the study published in The BMJ in December 2016 For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top News “The

Energy launched a new research center at its Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) in Georgia Now thanks to the ongoing troubles at the Fukushima nuclear plant the fledgling National Center for Radioecology (NCoRE) suddenly finds itself with a lot more work to do Radioecology is the science of how radiation affects ecosystems and on Tuesday NCoRE’s group of experts in this field drawn from six US universities France Ukraine and SRNL held a teleconference to discuss how best to respond to the emerging radiation situation in Japan They decided to begin drafting recommendations for a plan to aid Japan in collecting ecological samples and testing current models of radiation’s effects on ecosystems After the situation in Japan stabilizes NCoRE hopes to bring Japanese radioecology experts on board as well and ultimately craft a white paper to present to the US government and other relevant groups Inspired by the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl accident NCoRE was founded in January 2011 as a way to collect various types of expertise in radioecology and study the environmental impacts of a growing number of nuclear power plants The group also plans to test models that would assist in the preparation for nuclear attacks as well as offer training for potential radioecologists The latter task is seen as crucial because no formal graduate program in radioecology currently exists “It’s very clear there’s a paucity of expertise in this area” says radioecologist Timothy Mousseau of the University of South Carolina Columbia The end of the nuclear testing era brought a gradual decline in funding for radioecology; investment in the field following Chernobyl proved to be only temporary But Mousseau who researches the long-term ecological effects of Chernobyl expects that Japan’s current nuclear troubles will trigger “renewed interest in what we’ve learned” Timothy Jannik of SRNL who specializes in risk modeling says that because Japan is still beset with earthquake and tsunami damage it will be difficult to quickly and accurately take current samples of any potential radiation across the country’s many ecosystems Much of what radioecologists will be able to learn about exposure doses and how the radiation was dispersed will come from retroactive modeling which will be more difficult but could result in improved dispersion models applicable to future radiation leaks Ideally NCoRE will work with groups in Japan to track the future impact of any released radiation “We would like to help develop an intensive monitoring mechanism to track deposition of radionuclides and how they are transported” Mousseau says One of NCoRE’s recommendations will be to test and reassess models of how radiation is spread through the food chain: in addition to direct fallout onto crops and agricultural soil radionuclides in the water could have widespread effects Cesium-137 in particular is known to accumulate in freshwater fish—a mainstay of the Japanese diet “I’m assuming if [radiation has] spread on the ground it also dispersed into lakes” Jannik says “The key is getting samples in the emerging situation” For our complete coverage of

Top News An LCD projector worth Rs 78000 a Lenovo laptop and Wi-Fi-enabled classrooms are the latest additions to this Marathi-medium government school at Dhekusim a village of 1800 people in Jalgaon’s Ambaner taluka some 360 km northeast of Mumbai Suresh Patil headmaster of the zila parishad school says the changes including a 2000-square-foot compound wall and revamped classrooms came not through government intervention but from funds raised from villagers “When we reached out to people and sought help to improve the school the villagers donated about Rs 55 lakh As of today at least 10 students have left private schools to join our school Our total number of students has gone up from 42 to 78” Patil says This isn’t an isolated story in Maharashtra Data available with the Maharashtra State Council of Education Research and Training (MSCERT) shows that between July 2015 and December 2016 school teachers in the state managed to raise a whopping Rs 216 crore from the public — funds that have been utilised for revamping classrooms building new toilets and on digital initiatives among others According to the MSCERT data Ahmednagar district has ensured the maximum public participation having raised over Rs 30 crore followed by Pune (Rs 1982 crore) Solapur (1903 crore) Aurangabad (1559 crore) and Nashik (1480 crore) So what inspired these Maharashtra government schools to seek funds Nand Kumar principal secretary state education department says one of the reasons could be the Pragat Shaikshanik programme rolled out by the state government two years ago “One of the components of the programme was the compulsory reporting of public participation Until now schools didn’t actively seek outside funds But now since the programme documents public participation teachers have started actively reaching out to the community encouraging them to contribute and also seeking corporate help There has also been an overall improvement in the quality of education reflected in many recent surveys due to which villagers have started investing in zila parishad schools” he says While in most districts the change is being brought about by the community as a whole Dhule district said to be the first in the state to have 100 per cent digital classrooms in its government schools might owe its transformation to a 35-year-old investment banker Harshal Vibhandik “I live in New York and two years ago I came back to my hometown in Dhule I had Rs 9 lakh with me and after visiting a few schools I decided to digitise nine of them But then villagers wanted to pitch in too and that is when the 70:30 funding idea came to me with villagers raising the majority of the money” Vibhandik says An idea that started off with nine schools soon covered all 1103 zila parishad schools of Dhule with the banker’s friends from abroad donors villagers local NGOs all pitching in Vibhandik who is working from India for now says he also travels to other districts “People are investing in the idea villagers are investing in it It is amazing to see the change” says Vibhandik While public participation has cut down on the long wait for government funds and elevated the image of zila parishad schools it has had an unexpected outcome – the autonomy it provides to teachers to secure funds has led to some innovative methods At the Kardelwadi zila parishad school in Pune’s Shirur taluka every donated item – from the table fan to even blackboard dusters – has the name of the sponsor Primary school teachers Dattatrey and Bebinanda Sakat say they figured out that the practice encourages more people to donate “It gives them a sense of fulfillment and it doesn’t really take anything from us So we started writing the names of the donors Now for almost anything we need we just turn to the villagers and they get it for us instantly So from computers to science labs our small village school with less than 100 students has almost everything that a big city school
