Indian tennis scene seems perched at an uncomfortable crossroad

first_img(From left) Chiradeep Mukherjea, Vijay Amritraj, Royappa and Kamesh Krishnan: tired actors in a tragic farceThere was, in a sense, a certain amount of symbolism in Chiradeep Mukherjea’s facile win over Australian Brian Benson in last fortnight’s Indian Open Satellite Tennis Tournament at Calcutta’s South Club. The comparatively unattractive prize,(From left) Chiradeep Mukherjea, Vijay Amritraj, Royappa and Kamesh Krishnan: tired actors in a tragic farceThere was, in a sense, a certain amount of symbolism in Chiradeep Mukherjea’s facile win over Australian Brian Benson in last fortnight’s Indian Open Satellite Tennis Tournament at Calcutta’s South Club. The comparatively unattractive prize money – Benson received Rs 3,325 as runner-up – and the glaring absence of any players of international repute has reduced the Indian tennis circuit to a tragic farce. This year, with the Indian Open having been scrapped and major tennis tournaments pruned down to a mere 17, the Indian tennis scene seems perched at an uncomfortable crossroad. Firstly the biggest foreign name the All India Lawn Tennis Association (AILTA) had was Benson and the two Americans, Rich Flach and Scott Kidd-all three virtual unknowns on the international tennis scene. The additional fact that the Satellite Tournament, which is considered a stepping stone to the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Volvo and Grand Prix tournaments, has Nandan Bal as top seed, is a dismal commentary on the status that the Indian circuit has earned over the years.At one time, it was possible for Indian tennis fans to bask in the reflected glory of Nastase, Thomas Koch, Tom Gorman, Raul Ramirez and of course the Amritraj brothers. But that is history. And the rot has started seeping down to the Amritrajs of tomorrow. “The circuit is getting stale,” says Balram Singh, a circuit veteran, “you don’t enjoy tennis anymore and neither do top players like Vijay, Anand, Shashi (Menon) bother to participate. That means that none of the top class foreigners are interested either.”Poor Organisation: But much of the griping from Indian circuit hopefuls is directed at the AILTA and the organisational hassles that make playing in the Indian circuit a frustrating experience. And, in the long run, scotches any talent that may be available. “The way Indian tennis is run is a disgrace,” storms Shyam Minotra, former Davis Cupper and the secretary’ of the recently-resurrected Tennis Players’ Association of India. “It has become routine to be elected and re-elected as the office bearers of the AILTA thus maintaining a never-ending monopoly.”Certainly, a close look at the organisational aspect of the Indian tennis circuit indicates why veteran has-beens like Jaideep Mukherjea and Premjit Lall are still winning tournaments, while no youngster worth the name (with the possible exception of Shankar Krishnan) has made any waves. For instance, none of the players is provided with the train fare, as was the case earlier. They are crammed together in spartan dormitories and paid an astonishing sum of Rs 15 a day for meals, AILTA spokesmen defend their penny-pinching by pointing out that the tournaments carry prize money. But how much? The prize money starts only when a player reaches the quarter finals and is a paltry Rs 200-250 for a majority of the tournaments. The total prize money is around Rs 20,000 and the bulk of the gate money and advertising revenue goes to the organisers.Few Opportunities: The result is that not many players complete the circuit since their money is exhausted by the time they are halfway through. Most of them come from middle class families and have a limited budget. Consequently, the entries for the later tournaments are sparse and the opportunities for spotting new talent greatly reduced. Argues Chiradeep Mukherjea: “There should be separate men’s, women’s and junior tournaments, with the juniors being given free board and lodging instead of prize money.”Another deterrent is the haphazard way in which the tournaments skip from one part of the country to another and back again, draining the mental and financial reserves of most of the players. In the 1978-79 circuit, players found themselves in Madras one week, then in Cuttack, Gauhati, Allahabad and Meerut. Says Narendra Singh who was in the committee that finalised the dates of the 1978-79 circuit: “One cannot help such things. Halfway through the tournament, a quarter of the centres have cried off due to finances, calamities or non-availability of top players. In which case, last minute adjustments have to be made.”But the AILTA seems determined to avoid what is the most obvious remedy. Increase the prize money and give free board and lodging till the end of the tournament. Even an improvement in the lodging facilities would be some sort of incentive if instead of 10 or 12 players sharing a dormit- ory, decent double rooms were provided. Says Royappa, a former Indian number one and a player on the international circuit: “Instead of one tournament a week, we should have at least two or three in different centres. This would lessen the load of entries on the organisers in the initial tournaments and would reduce the muddle that exists now.” But that is wishful thinking. The AILTA, which claims to be organising itself on ATP lines, seems quite content to let sleeping dogs lie. But it is a direct result of their attitude that led to India’s disgraceful performance in the Eastern Zone Davis Cup last year when the team lost to lowly North Korea. It was indicative of the huge gap between players of the calibre of Vijay Amritraj and Ramanathan Krishnan and the current crop of players who are stagnating through no real fault of their own or lack of adequate talent, but because of the peculiar attitude of the powers-that-be.advertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Ensure Children Are Fully Immunized – Dr. Ferguson

first_imgStory Highlights All children under the age of seven must be adequately vaccinated for their age prior to entry to school. Under the 1986 Public Health Act, all children should be fully vaccinated by their first birthday. He was delivering the feature address during opening of the 29th Caribbean Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) Managers Meeting. Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, is reminding parents of their responsibility in ensuring that their children are immunized with exemptions only allowed for medical reasons.He said that under the 1986 Public Health Act, all children should be fully vaccinated by their first birthday and receive booster shots thereafter.All children under the age of seven must be adequately vaccinated for their age prior to entry to school, which includes nursery and daycare facilities. Failure to comply with the regulations can result in prosecution in a court of law, the Minister of Health said.He was delivering the feature address during opening of the 29th Caribbean Expanded Programme on Immunization (EPI) Managers Meeting at the Jewel Runaway Beach and Golf Resort in St. Ann on November 19.More than 80 medical representatives from 30 countries are participating in the three-day meeting, which is being held under the theme: ‘Vaccination: A shared responsibility’.The Minister of Health, in his presentation, argued that immunization is crucially important and necessary, as it protects children under seven years of age from contracting deadly diseases such as poliomyelitis, measles, rubella, diphtheria, rubella and tetanus, among others.“Immunization is one of the most cost-effective health interventions that we can make and that will give us quick and substantial results. With the resources at our finger tips, I am disappointed that the world is still fighting the effects of vaccine-preventable diseases, especially among children,” Dr. Ferguson lamented.He said the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2008, attributed the deaths of 1.5 million children under five years old, to vaccine-preventable diseases.“Can you imagine that over a million children may be alive today if they had simply gotten a vaccine?  It is my considered view that vaccine-preventable diseases should not be claiming the lives of so many of the world’s children,” Dr. Ferguson argued.He noted that the region of the Americas and the Caribbean have been world leaders in disease elimination through vaccination, having been the first in the world to eradicate poliomyelitis, measles and rubella.Noting the devastating effects that vaccine-preventable diseases have had on Jamaica’s population in the past, including  the 1954 polio outbreak and subsequent outbreaks in 1957, 1960, 1964 and 1982, Dr. Ferguson said that the Government has been “relentless to see that our immunization programme gets the necessary resources”.“I would never ever like to see a repeat of those terrible periods especially since it is within our power to prevent something like that ever happening again … this is one of the critical areas in health in which we cannot afford to drop the ball,” he stated.The objectives of the regional meeting are to discuss and set targets for immunization coverage, and the reduction of morbidity and mortality from vaccine-preventable diseases.The meeting will also serve to analyze the status of each country’s EPI programme, while identifying areas for further collaboration, strengthening and establishing targets for 2014.last_img read more

Mumbai air hostess gangraped airline security officer arrested

first_imgGetty ImagesAn air hostess was allegedly gang-raped by a colleague and his roommates in Mumbai. The accused, 23-year-old Swapnil Kumar Bodiya, works with the security wing of the airline.According to reports, Swapnil took the victim to his rented apartment from a bar late on Tuesday. He then sexually assaulted her with his roommates.The victim, who had arrived from Hyderabad on Monday, had dropped her luggage at her house and met Swapnil at a mall in Malad. They later went to a bar there. The accused told the police that he drove the victim straight to his residence as she was not in a state to be able to reach her home.The next morning, according to the police, the victim spotted injury marks on her body and told her boyfriend and father about the ordeal she went through. Her father registered a police complaint after which the accused was arrested.She told the police that when she arrived at Swapnil’s residence, there were two men and a woman. The statement of Swapnil’s flatmates was also recorded after which the arrest was made.”Her father and boyfriend tried contacting her, but they did not get a response,” a police officer told Hindustan Times.  A demonstrator holds a placard as she attends a candlelight vigil to mark the first anniversary of Delhi gang rape, in New Delhi December 16, 2013.REUTERS/Anindito MukherjeeThe police have registered a case under sections 376-D (gang-rape) and 323 (voluntarily causing hurt) of the Indian Penal Code.Although Mumbai is regarded as a safer city for women as compared to the other metros like Delhi, a series of incidents of crimes against women have rattled the police authorities as well as social activists in the past few days.Venturing out at night for women has not been much of a problem unlike the national capital, but the alarming rate at which the crime in the city has increased particularly directed against women calls for tougher laws as well as better security measures in place.last_img read more

Hong Kong airport protesters retreat but city in chaos

first_imgPassengers wait in line at check-in counters at Hong Kong`s International Airport on 14 August 2019. Photo: AFPPro-democracy protesters retreated from Hong Kong’s airport on Wednesday following two days of hugely disruptive rallies that turned violent and plunged the global financial hub further into turmoil.The protests ended early Wednesday morning following a series of clashes in which a policeman drew his gun after being beaten by demonstrators and other officers fired pepper spray.The rallies paralysed one of the world’s busiest travel hubs, deepening a 10-week crisis that is the biggest challenge to Chinese rule of Hong Kong since its 1997 British handover.US president Donald Trump deepened fears Beijing may be prepared to stage a military intervention to end the unrest, saying on Tuesday his intelligence had confirmed Chinese troop movements toward the Hong Kong border.The unrest, which has seen millions of people take to Hong Kong’s streets, was sparked by opposition to a planned law that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China.But it quickly evolved into a much broader campaign for democratic freedoms, and to stop the growing influence of China’s authoritarian rulers in the semi-autonomous city.Suspicion, violence On Monday and Tuesday, thousands of protesters wearing their signature black T-shirts gathered at Hong Kong’s airport, forcing hundreds of flights to be cancelled.After initially just voicing their demands with peaceful demonstrations, the protesters adopted more aggressive tactics on Tuesday and created barricades with luggage trolleys to block passengers at the departure halls.Late on Tuesday night, the protests descended into a series of violent confrontations with police, and demonstrators scuffling with passengers desperate to get on flights.In one particularly ugly scene filmed by media, a group of protesters ganged up on a policeman and beat him. They stopped their attack when the policeman pulled his gun and pointed it at them, but did not fire.Demonstrators also turned on two men, fuelled by suspicions within their ranks about undercover police or spies.The first man was held for about two hours before eventually being led away in an ambulance. Riot police briefly deployed pepper spray and batons to beat back protesters while they escorted the vehicle away from the departures hall.Another man, wearing a yellow journalist vest, was surrounded, zip-tied and then beaten by a small group who accused him of being a spy.In a tweet, Hu Xijun, the editor of China’s state-controlled Global Times tabloid — which has vociferously condemned the protests — said the man was a journalist working for the paper.By early Wednesday, most protesters had left and many flights were operating as scheduled in the morning.However, it was unclear if the protesters, who have no public leaders and organise via social media, would return to the airport.The Airport Authority has obtained an injunction to remove demonstrators but enforcing it may prove difficult, as the hub is designed to make entry as fast and efficient as possible.Passengers can also arrive via bus, train and taxi, with each mode of transport having different entrances.The ‘abyss’ On Tuesday morning, the city’s leader, Carrie Lam, gave an at-times emotional press conference in which she warned of dangerous consequences if escalating violence was not curbed.”Take a minute to think, look at our city, our home, do you all really want to see it pushed into an abyss?” Lam said, although she again refused to make any concessions to the protesters.The Chinese government has repeatedly signalled the protesters are reaching the limits of the “one country, two systems” legal framework that gives Hong Kong its autonomy.Authorities in Beijing on Monday described some of the violence as “terrorism”, and state-run media this week began promoting videos showing security forces gathering in Shenzhen just across the border from Hong Kong.Trump on Tuesday said his intelligence had confirmed Chinese troops were gathering across the border.”I hope it works out for everybody including China. I hope it works out peacefully, nobody gets hurt, nobody gets killed,” he said.The United Nations’ human rights chief on Tuesday voiced concern over force used against protesters and called for an impartial probe.However, Trump has said little to support Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement, drawing criticism from both sides of the American political spectrum.”Trump favours both sides in Hong Kong protests. Hardly a profile in courage,” said Nicholas Burns, a former senior US diplomat now at the Harvard University Kennedy School.last_img

One prediction was overcrowded offices, resulting in longer waits for patient care. Yet instead of going up, wait times are actually coming down.Several factors could be contributing to the decrease. Alternative care facilities, like urgent care centers and retail clinics, could be taking the burden off primary care doctors. Physician extenders, like nurse practitioners and physician assistants, may also be easing doctor caseloads. Even the rise of concierge medicine can be diverting patients from traditional group practice care. In fact, wait times for primary care doctors, the doctors Americans see the most, were generally down more than one minute (1 minute, 11 seconds) in a year-over-year comparison.“It appears that the growth of supportive health services is increasing the overall efficiency of care for patients,” said Heyward Donigan, CEO of Vitals. “This is great news as more Americans receive health coverage and enter the system, post-reform.While wait times are decreasing overall, the study found wide variations by doctor specialty. Dentists (13 minutes, 31 seconds) and plastic surgeons (15 minutes, 22 seconds), whose patients often pay out-of-pocket, have the shortest wait times out of the 61 types of specialists Vitals analyzed. Emergency doctors (24 minutes, 41 seconds) and pain management specialists (24 minutes, 52 seconds) had some of the longest wait times.Beyond the type of doctor, where you see the doctor matters, too.  Out of the 50 largest cities across the United States, Portland edged out Seattle for the shortest wait time at 15 minutes, 48 seconds in 2015. Minneapolis, Seattle, Milwaukee and Omaha were also in the top 5. For the fourth year in a row, the longest wait time was reported in El Paso, Texas, at 26 minutes, 21 seconds. Memphis, Miami, New York and Las Vegas were also at the bottom of the ranking.For states, New Hampshire led the nation with the shortest wait time at 15 minutes, 4 seconds. The remaining top states with shortest physician wait times include Wisconsin, Maine, Minnesota and Vermont. Alabama edged out Mississippi this year as the state with the longest wait, averaging 23 minutes, 25 seconds. Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Tennessee were also in the bottom five.Vitals’ annual Physician Wait Time Report, now in its sixth year, is compiled from patient-reported wait times. The Vitals Index is designed to provide information about the current state of the doctor-patient relationship.For more information: www.vitals.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | Information Technology | July 31, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How Smart Devices Can Improve Efficiency Innovation is trending toward improved efficiency — but not at the expense of patient safety, according to… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:33Loaded: 2.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:33 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

This next-generation approach focuses on customer-centered vendor interoperability, rather than creating additional silos of large data prevalent in the “big bang” vendor neutral archive (VNA) realm. The company launched its ANA at the annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), June 29 – July 1 in Portland, Ore.Vital’s ANA approach uses a sophisticated software toolset that facilitates advanced interoperability and workflow between existing healthcare informatics applications. The solution was specifically designed to address the semantic interoperability chasm between structured and unstructured datasets. The platform communicates with numerous sub-systems, such as enterprise content management (ECM), VNA and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), in synchronicity with electronic medical records (EMR), health information exchanges (HIE) and many other healthcare information systems. ANA promotes a federated, real-time access to information model versus the “big bang” centralization focus of a typical VNA project.ANA provides semantic interoperability to all stakeholders in the healthcare enterprise, from providers to the myriad of EMR, ESB, VNA and other imaging and multimedia vendors. This enterprise-wide approach supports technology providers in their efforts to streamline workflow as healthcare organizations navigate the varied requirements of government regulations, accountable care, shared-saving programs, chronic disease management and bundled payments.For more information: www.vitalimages.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content Videos | Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President … read more Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.
