Dr Mohan spoke about ‘What’s new in preventing and combating diabetes.’“We are honoured to bring in Dr Mohan to educate people about the growing concern in diabetes. Dr Mohan has been delivering care to patients with diabetes across the country through his centres for many many years. He has also trained thousands of diabetologists in India and other developing countries.” said Dr GSK Velu, Chairman and Managing Director, Neuberg Diagnostics.Giving an introduction to diabetes, Dr Mohan said, “Glucose is a key source of energy to our body and its metabolism is highly regulated by hormones like insulin and glucagon, diabetes is a condition that impairs the body’s ability to process blood sugar, leading to persistently high levels of glucose in the blood (hyperglycemia). There are different types of diabetes. The diagnosis of each one of these types is based on certain tests. The advantage of knowing which type of diabetes one has is that the treatment can be tailored accordingly.”Stating that nutrition and physical activity are important parts of a healthy lifestyle for diabetes patients, Dr Mohan commented, “If you have diabetes, you need to keep an eye on what you eat, how much you eat and when you eat, and how active a lifestyle you lead. Eating well-balanced meals along with regular exercise is essential in managing diabetes. By making healthy food choices and understanding the “good” and “bad” carbohydrates, it can become very easy to control your blood glucose levels and avoid the development of diabetic complications. Nutrition and physical activity are important parts of a healthy lifestyle for diabetes patients.”Dr P Srinivasan, Technical Director, Neuberg Ehrlich Laboratory said that “Over the past few decades, an increase in the neglect of personal health by the next generation is resulting in the increase in morbidity and mortality at a younger age. Type 2 diabetes plays a major role in this. Screening, early diagnosis and adequate monitoring using appropriate tests is the key to prevent this problem. Keeping this in mind, Neuberg is available through its Anywhere Anytime 24×7 samples collection services to address this issue.”A well-designed monitoring programme can support early detection and management to help with a better quality of life post-diagnosis of diabetes.

Firm Section is always available to help Associate EditorIt seems too pat to say that one of the perks of working in a solo or small firm is that you might get to take your dog to work. But it’s true in Peggy Hoyt’s case, at least. Hoyt is co-owner of The Law Offices of Hoyt & Bryan and chair-elect of The Florida Bar’s General Practice Solo and Small Firm Section. And the dog is Leiden, a Papillon, who greets clients before settling down in the chair behind Hoyt. “She has to be center of attention for just a few minutes, and then she calms down. It’s great for the clients” who come to Hoyt’s firm for wills, trusts, and estates matters as well as elder law. “She really relaxes them.”Leiden’s laid-back vibe must help a lot, because Hoyt’s practice also at times personifies what’s not so great about solo and small firm practice: a lot of work to do and very few hands around to help. Hoyt & Bryan’s small team got smaller this summer when partner Randy Bryan and funding paralegal Sandra Gfell were deployed to Iraq.“We’re down to three full-time people right now,” Hoyt said. “We’re a very busy little practice.”Contrasted with attorneys at medium-sized or large firms, lawyers hanging out their own shingles have always had to do a lot of their own heavy lifting. So the section has traditionally focused on providing as much education and support as possible.“One thing that sets us apart from other sections is that we’re not focused on any one specific area of practice. We have members who do general practice, where you work on everything that walks in the door, all the way to a specialized practice,” said Theresa Morgan, a private practitioner who serves as the section’s 2008-09 CLE chair. “Our goal is to meet most, if not all, of our attorneys’ needs. We’re really focused on making sure that each presentation during our conference is something that can help everyone.”Section leadership has focused on making sure members have the necessary education and tools at their disposal to get the job done — because law school alone often doesn’t.The General Practice, Solo and Small Law Firm Section’s central goal is to enhance the quality of practice for the solo and small firm lawyer as well as the lawyer who has interests beyond the bounds of a single professional specialty.“The section does so by providing creative and effective member services,” said Chair Ana M. Veliz of Miami, in her chair’s message on the section’s Web site. “Some of these member services include offering quality CLE courses and pro bono CLEs to section members prior to meetings of the section’s executive council.”Veliz said other membership services include informative and pragmatic articles in the section’s quarterly newsletter LINK ; providing networking and informational opportunities through its new Web site — www.gpssf.org — and membership roster; mentoring young attorneys; law school outreach programs; supporting pro bono legal services throughout Florida and recognizing outstanding service to the legal profession through its Tradition of Excellence Award.“I would never, ever in a million years, recommend just hanging out a shingle when you’re fresh out of law school,” Morgan said. “I think that people are doing themselves and their clients a disservice if they don’t get the training they need. You have got to have some heavy-duty experience when you go out to practice law.”One effort that got underway at its first convention this spring was an interview session, where small practice firms looking to hire were invited to interview graduating law students from all over the state. Half of those interviewed got jobs, says organizer Linda Calvert Hanson, assistant dean for career services at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.“This kind of interview process was something that wasn’t all that familiar to smaller firm practitioners – it’s a model that has historically been used for large firms,” Hanson said. “We’re trying to help them realize that we have a wide range of very well-qualified, talented students, and helping to provide an opportunity for everyone to get together.”“Often we tend to think that the big law firms represent everyone, but they’re really the minority,” Hoyt adds. “We wanted to provide a better base of education and networking, and the interview session worked out well.”Morgan says she enjoys having a hand in choosing topics for the section’s conference, which will take place for only the second time in Spring 2009. One representative conference topic focuses on finding balance between practice management and law practice.“I’m really interested in how you can manage your overhead while you’re in small practice and still find time to practice law,” Morgan said. “It’s hard to find time even to go home at night when you’ve got all these balls in the air.”The section also completed a move in its 2006-07 year to merge with the Practice Management and Development Section, to better help attorneys of every stripe manage their practices.“We decided we could be stronger together than apart, and provide a better service to bar members,” says Camille Iurillo, former chair of the Practice Management and Development Section. “We focus on helping lawyers run their offices as successful businesses, but at the same time being successful, professional lawyers.” The General Practice, Solo and Small Why go it all alone?

iStock/Thinkstock(PHILADELPHIA) — More than 10,000 Eagles fans stormed the streets of Philadelphia on Sunday night to celebrate their team’s first Super Bowl victory. Fireworks lit up the skies of downtown Philadelphia as fans of the championship-starved franchise sang, cried and drank into the wee hours of Monday morning. It was a celebration 58 years in the making.Fans could be seen climbing poles, buildings, cars and even hotel awnings as the Eagles’ fight song “Fly Eagles Fly” was belted with drunken revelry into the night by thousands of fans. The celebration was mostly peaceful but the Philadelphia Police Department did respond to a number of isolated incidents during the celebration.“We have had several acts of vandalism where windows have been smashed and some injuries have been reported around light poles that have been pulled down,” a Philadelphia Police spokesperson said. “We have one report of looting at a gas station. There have been no fatalities.” A large group of fans climbed the gates of City Hall with beer kegs while a car on Walnut Street was flipped on its side. There were also a number of small fires set on the street but nobody was seriously injured. Police began clearing out fans around 1:30 a.m. and were able to clear the streets by about 4 a.m.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Powered by WPeMatico Related
Kolkata: The state Higher Education department held a meeting to elicit opinion from the engineering institutions across the state, on bringing forward the dates for holding and publication of results of West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations.More than 40 percent seats in the engineering colleges across the state have remained vacant this year, as many of the students have migrated to institutions outside the state with the state JEE examination being held and results published much later than similar examinations in other states. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaMajority of the officials present in the meeting proposed that the Joint Entrance examination should be held in February-March and results should be published in April-May, ahead of the results of state Higher Secondary Examinations. However, a senior official of West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education pointed out that publication of JEE results before HS may not be a good idea as if a student seeks admission to a college after cracking JEE and fails to clear HS, then his/her admission will automatically be cancelled. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayAn official of a reputed engineering institution in the state said that it is very rare that a student cracking JEE fails in the HS. “However, to ensure that there is no complexity, we may go for provisional admission,” the official reasoned. Vice-Chancellor of MAKAUT Saikat Maitra said: “We should also make attempts to popularise the wide array of engineering courses that are offered in our state, so that students from other states are attracted to our colleges.” MAKAUT churns out around 35,000 graduates from its 90 engineering colleges and 110 professional colleges affiliated to it across the state. The meeting that was chaired by Principal Secretary Higher Education Manish Jain, was attended by representatives of Association of Professional Academic Institutions (APAI)-the sole representatives of all the self-financed engineering and technological institutions in Bengal, Jadavpur University, principals of a number of private engineering colleges and Chairman and Registrar of West Bengal Joint Entrance Examinations Board. More meetings on this issue will follow as the department wants to make this effective right from the 2020 academic session.

He also captained Mumbai in domestic cricket. Madhav Apte was assigned as the opening batsman by legendary Vinoo Mankad. He played along with several legendary cricketers, including Mankad, Polly Umrigar, Vijay Hazare and Rusi Modi. He earlier also served as president of the iconic CCI, an official said. Till his last breath, he was president of the ‘Legends Club’, a group formed to celebrate the achievements of different sportspersons. Former Mumbai cricketer Shishir Hattangadi took to Twitter to offer his condolences. “Another institution of Bombay and Mumbai Cricket comes to an end. RIP Madhav Rao Apte. Will treasure those long discussions with you cricket from your days!” he tweeted. “Madhav Apte had a bag of stories. From Vinoo Mankad to his buddy Subhya Fergie Gupte. To listen to him was rewinding cricket history. Dignified affable yet accessible as senior. Passing Pedder Road and Woodland Apartments each time will bring back memories with a smile.#RIP, Hattangadi said in another tweet.
