the future of millions of children in the country Irani has no moral constitutional or legal right to continue in her post for even a day" said Congress’s chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala He

News To help parents interact better with autistic children researchers have adapted a treatment which can be delivered by non-specialist health workers in India and Pakistan This mode of treatment first tried in Manchester in United Kingdom has already been successfully tested in Goa and Rawalpindi The study — Effectiveness of the Parent-mediated intervention for children with Autism Spectrum disorder in South Asia in India and Pakistan (PASS) — was published in The Lancet Psychiatry Journal on December 16 This is the first time a form of treatment which is allowed to be delivered by non-specialist health workers in south Asian communities has been adapted “This is a first as researchers from an Indian NGO Goa-based Sangath have collaborated with universities of Manchester and Liverpool and partners in Pakistan to adapt a parent-led autism therapy and successfully tested it at Goa and Rawalpindi with the aim of improving treatment for an estimated 5 million children in the region with the disorder” said lead author of the study Professor Jonathan Green from the University of Manchester Autism is one of the world’s fastest growing developmental challenges; it affects up to 70 million people and has a severe effect on the social development of children In developed countries children are able to receive specialised treatment to improve their interaction with their families But such specialised treatment is not available in many parts of India As part of the Autism Speaks Global Autism Public Health Initiative researchers adapted a leading UK therapy method known as PACT which help parents interact better with their autistic child said Dr Gauri Divan clinical lead of the study in India The method known as PASS was taught to non-specialist health workers in Goa along with their counterparts in Rawalpindi in Pakistan who in turn worked with parents of 32 autistic children who were part of the trial “It took two researchers — one from India and a child psychiatrist Ayesha Minhas from Pakistan — to adapt this intervention strategy” said Divan a paediatrician from Goa “We have no experience in dealing with autistic children but this programme gave us the opportunity to meet the challenges and then adapt it to our own cultural situation I went on to train three graduates (non-specialist health workers) in Goa and Ayesha trained three others in Pakistan They approached parents of these children and taught them therapeutic strategies” explained Dr Divan As many as 65 children with autism spectrum disorder aged between 2 and 9 years were involved in the study While 32 children were included in the intervention arm — a 12-session package over eight months — 33 were included in the control arm and they continued regular treatment for autism Children with autism spectrum disorder find it very difficult to communicate their feelings So the relationship between the mother and the child is all about commands instead of to-and-fro communication pointed out Divan “Our strategy involved observing the child and picking up weak communication signals It could be something very basic like a child who wants to play with a toy but is unable to express that to his mother So we recorded a video of the mother and child playing together and analysed how she was not able to pick up the signals We got her back on track and the parent did not get too stressed about what the child wants This also improves the child’s confidence level” said Divan The therapy was delivered in the parents’ first language The treatment began with a session on the causes of this condition and misconceptions about it At the end of the 12-week period the children underwent assessments using recognised methods and were found to be more likely to initiate communication with their parents compared to the comparison group said Dr Vikram Patel one of the principal investigators of the study and Professor of International Mental Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine UK “This pioneering study shows us that it is possible to implement high-quality evidence-based intervention in low-resource communities even when there are few or no specialists” said Andy Shih vice-president of scientific affairs in Autism Speaks Dr Shih leads Autism Speaks’ GAPH (Global Autism Public Health) initiative which partners with communities in more than 70 countries worldwide to increase awareness and access to autism services For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: PTI | Washington

technologies to counter space radiation – one of the biggest challenges for human journey to Mars – to ensure a safe and successful exploration of the red planet “Some people think that radiation will keep NASA from sending people to Mars but that is not the current situation” said Pat Troutman NASA Human Exploration Strategic Analysis Lead “When we add the various mitigation techniques up we are optimistic it will lead to a successful Mars mission with a healthy crew that will live a very long and productive life after they return to Earth” said Troutman Space radiation is quite different and more dangerous than radiation on Earth NASA said Even though the International Space Station (ISS) sits just within Earth’s protective magnetic field astronauts receive over ten times the radiation than what is naturally occurring on Earth the US space agency said Outside the magnetic field there are galactic cosmic rays (GCRs) solar particle events (SPEs) and the Van Allen Belts which contain trapped space radiation NASA is able to protect the crew from SPEs by advising them to shelter in an area with additional shielding materials However GCRs are much more challenging to protect against These highly energetic particles come from all over the galaxy They are so energetic they can tear right through metals plastic water and cellular material “One of the most challenging parts for the human journey to Mars is the risk of radiation exposure and the inflight and long-term health consequences of the exposure” said Lisa Simonsen NASA Space Radiation Element Scientist “This ionising radiation travels through living tissues depositing energy that causes structural damage to DNA and alters many cellular processes” said Simonsen NASA is evaluating various materials and concepts to shield the crew from GCRs Researchers are developing and evaluating shielding concepts for transport vehicles habitats and space suits with state of the art models Scientists are investigating pharmaceutical counter-measures which may be more effective than shielding to protect crews from GCRs NASA said Engineers are developing enhanced space weather forecasting tools and studying faster rockets to reduce the time spent in space and exposure to radiation according to the US space agency NASA’s Advanced Exploration Systems Division is also developing various space radiation detection and mitigation technologies “Mars is the best option we have right now for expanding long-term human presence” Troutman said “We have already found valuable resources for sustaining humans such as water ice just below the surface and past geological and climate evidence that Mars at one time had conditions suitable for life “What we learn about Mars will tell us more about Earth’s past and future and may help answer whether life exists beyond our planet” said Troutman For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related NewsNew Delhi: Parliament today approved the Finance Bill 2017 after the Lok Sabha rejected five amendments moved to it by the Upper House with regard to curbing more powers to taxmen and a cap on donation by companies to political parties Winding up the debate on amendments passed by the Rajya Sabha Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said they cannot be accepted by the government but invited suggestions from political parties including the Congress and the BJD to make electoral funding more clean and transparent The Lok Sabha later rejected the Rajya Sabha amendments by a voice vote thus passing the Finance Bill 2017 and completing the budgetary exercise for 2017-18 Jaitley said most of the donations that come to political parties now are from unclean money and there was complete non-transparency Finance Minister Arun Jaitley PTI Defending the budget proposal he said it is not possible for the Government to accept the amendment as it would limit the number of donors to political parties "The harsh reality is we continue to do politics on the basis of undeclared money because if we do it on the basis of declared money. somebody will write an editorial and will have a problem with every solution we offer" Jaitley said "Today we have given the option of receiving donations by cheque — there is total transparency it is clean money Small donations by cash less than Rs 2000 You can receive donations online too And do it by bonds which is clean money" he said With regard to the taxation amendments proposed by the Rajya Sabha he said the current position will continue and the government as a matter of "abundant caution" and to protect whistle-blowers the bill has specified that the "satisfaction note" will not be given to the target of investigation Since 1961 he said there is no example that the target of investigation was revealed the satisfaction note which forms the basis of investigation with regard to tax evasion "It would be disastrous to do that" Jaitley said adding such information can only be given to the courts The Finance Minister during the course of reply also took a dig at the Congress saying if they had a problem with the electoral bonds they could continue to accept donations by cheque and see how many people donates to them The government had yesterday faced major embarrassment in the Rajya Sabha as five amendments moved by the Congress and the CPI(M) to the Finance Bill were adopted and approved by the House The amendments proposed to delete the provisions relating to the powers given to taxmen like power to requisition books of account power to survey and more powers to more officers The Rajya Sabha also approved an amendment that there should be a cap of 75 per cent of net profit of the last three financial years for donation to political parties It also approved a provision to disclose the name of political parties to which contribution has been made by a company "I have an open invitation to all please suggest to me a better system which will ensure clean money and transparency to the extent possible I am yet to receive a single suggestion "I am only hearing adjectives like ‘it must be clean’ ‘it must be transparent’ Please give me ideal combination of the two We are willing to consider it I will wait for a specific suggestion" he said Responding to the issues raised by members on electoral bonds Jaitley said such donations will be reflected in the balance sheet of corporates "Balance sheet will always reflect the amount of electoral bond that he (company) has purchased The person who donates by cheque will be disclosed in the balance sheet the person who donates by bond the quantum of bond which is purchased will be reflected in the balance sheet" he said "If we want clean money should we narrow down and restrict the constituency of donors" the Minister asked Calling for an "honest and bold decision" he asked "do we want to clean up the political funding or no" He said "if we reduce the ambit of donors and the quantum they can donate then the tendency to move towards cash donations will always be higher So let us take a bold decision whether we want a tendency where people are incentivised and encouraged by cheques (donations) or not" "Today we have given the option that receive donation by cheque there is total transparency It’s clean money Small donations by cash less than Rs 2000 You can receive
