10 Reasons Your Hair Thins

Thinning hair doesn’t happen just because. There are a whole host of factors that can cause your hair to look sparse. Here’s what’s going on.

Your Genes

Englewood Cliffs, NJ, dermatologist Jeffrey Rapaport, MD, says that your genes are probably the most common cause for thinning hair. “As women get older, it’s normal for them to start to see thinning. When genetics play a role, we sometimes see the thinning much earlier on or it’s more intensified.”

Your Hormones

Anything that alters your hormone levels—think birth control, menopause or pregnancy—can be responsible for hair that’s thinner than normal. Plano, TX, plastic surgeon Joseph Yaker, MD, says thinning hair is especially common in menopausal women because estrogen levels diminish. “The hormone estrogen is essential for protecting the hair.” Hormone-related disorders like polycystic ovary syndrome can impact the thickness of hair, too.

Having a Baby

During pregnancy, hair is thick, shiny andvoluminous. But post-pregnancy, it’s not uncommon for the hair to begin temporarily thinning out (and even breaking) due to a shift in hormones. About three months after delivery, hormones send the hair from an active, growing state into a resting one. For the most part, once your hormone levels even out, your hair should return back to normal.

Damaged Stem Cells in Hair Follicles

A rather new discovery in the world of thinning, the more damage (predominantly caused by aging) that occurs to the stem cells that live in the hair follicles, the more likely it is for those stem cells to turn into skin. Years of this transfer causes the follicles to shrink in size to the point that there is more skin than hair in the area, leading to patches of thinning hair or even bald spots.

Excessive Amounts of Vitamin A

One of the more under-the-radar causes of thinning hair is taking too many supplements with vitamin A, which sends the hair growth cycleinto a tailspin. However, once you stop taking high levels of the vitamin, your body will revert back to baseline and your hair should continue to grow regularly.

A Lack of Protein

Going vegetarian or vegan may do wonders for your body, but chances are it won’t do much for your hair. While not everyone who forgoes animal-based sources of protein experiences thinning hair, it’s not uncommon to see signs of thinning and hair loss because protein is often limited. To reverse the effects, take a protein and iron supplement or start to add reliable protein sources, like beans, quinoaand tempeh, into your diet.

Stress

Any type of emotional or physical stress can send your hair into a temporary state of disarray and here’s why. When your body is stressed, an uneven number of hairs transfer into the resting phase all at once. Then, when those hairs fall out, more than normal amounts are shed.

Medical Conditions and Autoimmune Disorders

When the immune system has to work overtime to keep symptoms of certain diseases at bay, the body may not be able to sort out what’s going on and mistake hair as something foreign and harmful to the body. Palo Alto, CA, facial plastic surgeon Jill Hessler, MD, says that low thyroid levels can lead to hair loss. Hair thinning and hair loss caused by autoimmune disorders, also known as alopecia areata, is one of the harder types of thinning to treat.

Sudden Weight Loss

Dropping a serious amount of weight extremely fast (think 25 pounds in one month) can cause trauma to your hair, leaving it thin and weak. It’s not the weight loss itself that causes it, but rather the lack of vitamins, nutrients and healthy fats that you may be depriving yourself of that change the texture of your hair.

Overstyling and Abusing Your Hair

Everything in moderation is the best approach to take when it comes to your hair. “Some hair types can’t tolerate the same amount of heat styling as others, but you need to know what your hair can withstand,” says Bumble and bumble stylist and educator, Carrie Hill. “Use medium heat instead of high heat and give your hot tools a break by using them every other day instead of every day.”

10 Simple Diet Tips to Help You Fit into That Party Dress

Simple Diet Tips

Extreme dieting practices are totally unnecessary. Just follow this guide.

We all have that one “little black dress” we keep in the back of the closet, because the zipper just won’t zip. Many of us will convince ourselves that a liquid cleanse or crazy crash diet is the only way to finally feel good in our favorite party dress, but aren’t happy about the strenuous process of getting there. Well, you’re in luck. We’re here to tell you that you can skip the liquid cleanse and long hours of cardio, and make simple, healthy changes to take your party dress out of the closet for a night on the town.

First step to weight loss? Sleep! According to WebMD, “’There are over two dozen studies that suggest that people who sleep less tend to weigh more,’ says Sanjay Patel, MD, assistant professor of medicine at Case Western Reserve University, in Cleveland, Ohio.” Seven hours of sleep are necessary for a healthy metabolic rate and regular appetite. Talk about an enjoyable way to trim your waistline.

Registered dietician Christina Moreno advises, “Make small changes slowly with the big picture in mind. It generally takes 30 days to make (or break) a habit, so make small attainable goals (smart goals) to work towards.” Small changes can include ditching the diet and drinking more water. Water is an underrated weight loss superpower — it fills you up without adding to your daily calorie consumption. Although the recommended intake is eight glasses per day, use your body weight to calculate recommended consumption, as each person is different and may require diverse amounts.

Joey Adduci, a certified personal trainer and nutrition consultant at AdduciFIT, always encourages his clients to eat when hungry — never going longer than five hours without food. He also stresses the importance of building the most effective meal — choosing lean protein, grains, fruits, and vegetables. Moreno encourages the same principles, including eating every two to four hours and chewing food slowly while sitting down. Super simple steps; no starving yourself, no crazy workouts, just simple, effective ways to lose those few stubborn pounds and zip up your party dress. Read on for more totally doable derriere-shrinking dos and don’ts.

Eat every 2 to 4 hours

 

Who knew the key to losing weight was eating more? According to WebMD, “Having a small meal or snack every 3 to 4 hours keeps your metabolism cranking, so you burn more calories over the course of a day. Several studies have also shown that people who snack regularly eat less at mealtime.”

Add Some Spice to Your Meals

 

Eating spicy food increases metabolism. WebMD reports that “[s]picy foods have natural chemicals that can kick your metabolism into a higher gear. Cooking foods with a tablespoon of chopped red or green chili pepper can boost your metabolic rate.”

Government to create 10,000 vacancies for certified yoga teachers

New Delhi: The government plans to create 10,000 vacancies of certified yoga trainers as more people take to the traditional practice, an official in the central government’s AYUSH ministry said.

The number of yoga trainers in the country has increased 30% in the past two years, according to ministry estimates.

Yoga has gradually become popular among Indians. More and more private companies are hiring yoga instructors in their offices realizing its holistic benefits– Ishwara N. Acharya, joint adviser (yoga), AYUSH ministry

“Yoga has gradually become popular among Indians. More and more private companies are hiring yoga instructors in their offices realizing its holistic benefits. The government is also planning to create around 10,000 vacancies for yoga trainers in coming years,” said Ishwara N. Acharya, joint adviser (yoga) in the AYUSH ministry said.

“Recently, Haryana government has announced 1,000 vacancies in the state. We have written to all other states to identify the institutions where there is a need of certified yoga trainers. Before 2015, there was no certification for yoga trainers but we now provide them accreditation through Quality Council of India (QCI) to ensure quality of the traditional practice,” said Acharya.

QCI has designed a scheme for voluntary certification of yoga professionals by adopting principles and requirements laid down in international standards. QCI also enables the government to hire certified yoga trainers in its institutions.

“More and more people are willing to take up the traditional practice as a profession. We have recently facilitated the hiring of yoga trainers in the Haryana government. We are also certifying yoga schools in the country. We have over 30 applications from yoga schools for certification on the parameters of infrastructure and quality. Government yoga schools are also improving gradually,” said Manish Pande, joint director, QCI.

AYUSH ministry’s wing Central Council for Research in Yoga and Naturopathy (CCRYN) is actively engaged in research activities regarding yoga and its efficacy on various diseases. An AYUSH ministry yoga protocol document claims that a small sampling of research shows that yoga is beneficial for physical fitness, musculo-skeletal functioning and cardio-vascular health. It claims yoga is beneficial in the management of diabetes, respiratory disorders, hypertension, hypotension and many lifestyle-related disorders. Also, yoga helps reduce depression, fatigue, anxiety disorders and stress and it also regulates menopausal symptoms.

“Popularity of yoga can be seen with an overwhelming response on International Yoga Day on Wednesday. Over 51,000 people took part in yoga celebrations in Lucknow. There are many youth who want to adopt the practice as profession but they don’t have jobs. Youth will be attracted towards the profession if they see job opportunities in the area,” Acharya said.

Recently, Shripad Naik, minister of state in the AYUSH ministry, claimed that CCRYN is conducting a mega multi-centric research study on efficacy of yoga on diabetes in which around 250,000 people have been screened and the preliminary results of this research study are very encouraging. The minister also said treatments in modern medical hospitals are becoming expensive; so, yoga is making new inroads.

CBSE won’t apply its 3 Indian language plan for Class 10 Board exam till 2020

A senior official said that “even if the new plan is approved by the ministry and CBSE starts working on the scheme it would not” happen before 2019-20.

  • Congress MP raises issue of student suicide in RS
  • NEET UG 2017 Urdu Row: Students organisation to file petition in SC
  • Civil aviation ministry approved mechanical and avionics aircraft courses
  • Maharashtra textbook dowry shocker: Will correct it, not in power when syllabus framed, says Education Minister
  • Why is CBSE removing its international curriculum?

In a sigh of relief for all board students and their parents, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has recently come up with a new plan (three-language formula) for Class 10 Board examination.

(Read: Why is CBSE removing its international curriculum?)

According to a new proposal, if a student is currently studying in Class 7 or above, need not worry about shifting to schools affiliated to CBSE where three-language formula is applicable.

Here’s why:

  • It is speculated that the government has decided this keeping in view the schedule of students studying in the current academic session and does not want to disturb them.

(Read: CBSE Class 10 Board exams to get compulsory, official notification released at cbse.nic.in)

When did the proposal of three-language formula come in?

  • Last year, in December, CBSE had sent the proposed three-language formula for secondary education to Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry, clearing all the doubts over it and when the new scheme would be implemented
  • As per sources, there were differences in the existing three-language formula of CBSE and the proposed scheme:
    1. The scheme extends till Class 10
    2. It will not include foreign languages as one of the options for students.

Key notes of the new plan:

  • In the new plan, candidates are required to take up three Indian languages listed in schedule VIII of the Constitution, one of which could be English
  • The three languages would be main subjects in the Class 10 board exams
  • Also, students can study a foreign language, or a non-listed Indian language, as an additional subject, which will be non-qualifying in nature.

According to a senior HRD official, even if the new plan is approved by the ministry and CBSE starts working on the scheme it would not “happen before 2019-20”.

“When the scheme is implemented will depend on the how soon the policy is finalised. Once the policy is framed, the schools would need to be given time as under this formula a student will get the option of 22 languages, for which teachers need to be appointed,” said  CBSE official in recent TOI report.

5 tips by PM Modi for students preparing for Classes 10 and 12 Board exams

To encourage the student in battling anxiety just a few months ahead of exams, PM Modi extended moral support by saying that students should find pleasure in exam by contemplating it as fun activities.

  • DU to introduce fresh admission criterion in upcoming session
  • DU plans to launch mobile app to monitor student attendance
  • Kashmir: Interactive session organised to motivate students affected by unrest
  • Delhi: School principals to face action for indiscipline, says govt
  • IIT Kharagpur professor in Delhi HC for acceptance of resignation by the institute

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in his first 2017 ‘Mann ki Baat’ session, captivates million of students across the country by rendering five erudite tips on how to face exams with a composed mind.

His speech was primarily dedicated for the students of Classes 10 and 12 who will be appearing for board examination in the coming days.

To encourage the student in battling anxiety over exams, PM gave a moral support by saying that students should find pleasure in exam by contemplating it as fun activities.

Wishing the best for the students, he concluded his ‘Mann ki Baat’ session.

Following are the five erudite tips from our own Prime Minister:

1.    Relax and don’t be panic over exam: “Smile more and score more” said the PM and added that students should be relaxed and not panic over exams. “Instead of chasing after marks, you should strive to gain knowledge,” he said adding, “Marks will follow if your mission and ambition are in sync.”

2.    Academic excellence alone cannot define success: focusing on lifelong development, he said that exams are not to be feared of as it is not the benchmark of success. Exams are not the test of a lifetime but a test of a year and urged the students not to compete with others but to compete with themselves.

3.    Lively environment: There should be a festive and lively environment in the house. Happiness in the house plays a pivotal role in student’s mental capabilities which are directly proportionate to educational performance as well. He also urged the parent to accept their wards of what they are and the way they are.

4.    Warned the students of unfair means: Emphasising on the moral fiber, he urged the students not to be tempted by the thought of securing marks by practicing unfair means. He said that instead of spending time on preparing to cheat during the exams, they should rather invest that time on studies. “If they cheat, what will they teach their children?” he asked.

5.    Proper rest: Like any other subject experts should have prescribed, Prime Minister Modi also recommends proper rest and to ensure adequate sleeps. While he also urged the students to stay physically fit, he also pointed out that there should be breaks during study hours.

10 Windows 10 interface changes coming in the Creators Update

windows 10 ui

The next major upgrade for Windows 10, dubbed the Creators Update, will be released in April. It will add new programs for creating content (like new music composing and painting apps), but there will be many additions addressing the ways you interact with the core OS itself.

Here are the most noteworthy, based on what’s we’ve seen in the Insider Preview builds.

Further reading: The Windows 10 Creators Update’s best new features: Dynamic Lock, Game Mode, privacy tweaks, and more 

1. Hello, Goodbye: Automatic lock when you step away from your computer

An addition to the Windows Hello security feature would automatically send your Windows 10 desktop to its lock screen when you step away from it. (You can already go to the lock screen by hitting the Windows logo and “L” keys at once.) An official name has not been released, but possibilities include Proximity Lock, Dynamic Lock and Windows Goodbye.

Microsoft has not revealed how Windows 10 will sense that you have stepped away. The simplest method would be to use your computer’s webcam, but this feature could also pair your smartphone with your Windows 10 computer or device through Bluetooth. When you step away, taking your smartphone out of Bluetooth range, Windows 10 would then go to its lock screen.

2. Action Center UI tweaks

In the Action Center, look for minor design changes to the Quick Access icons (the buttons you click to access specific controls of Windows 10). The Creators Update will also embed levels and sliders onto the Action Center so that you could adjust things like screen brightness and sound volume from this panel. This appears to be a redesign meant to help make the Action Center easier to use on a touchscreen.

3. Blue light special

There will be a “lower blue light” mode. When you activate this, the color temperature of your computer’s or tablet’s display will gradually lower as evening approaches. This reduces excessive brightness to your eyes and theoretically helps to improve your nighttime sleep.

4. Swipe controls on touchpads

If your notebook comes with a so-called Precision Touchpad, the Creators Update will make available settings for assigning gesture controls to it. This means when you tap two, three or four fingers on the touchpad, or swipe your fingers in one of four directions (up, down, left, right), an action that controls something in Windows 10 is triggered. For example, you could assign that swiping up on the touchpad with four fingers will switch the screen to the desktop environment, or that tapping the touchpad with three fingers will open the Cortana interface.

5. Group Start tiles into folder tiles

You’ll be able to drag-and-drop tiles on the Start menu over one another, which will group them together under a single tile (a “tile folder”). Drag more app tiles onto this tile folder to put them inside this folder. When you click a tile folder, it will expand down on the Start menu to show the tiles you’ve put inside it.

6. MyPeople, eventually

Microsoft is looking to implement social networking interactivity into Windows 10 in a prominent way. Named MyPeople at this point, the app runs in the taskbar to the left of the system tray icons. MyPeople will let you pin your favorite contacts to the taskbar (represented as icons of each person’s headshot), so that you could click one of them to quickly message that person. It appears that the people available could come from your list of contacts on the People app, accounts you have with GroupMe and Skype, and people you collaborate with on Microsoft Office.

Now for the bad news: While MyPeople is still scheduled for inclusion in Windows 10, Microsoft recently delayed the feature’s roll out. It will now appear in the next major upgrade after the Creators Update, rather than in the Creators Update as originally planned.

7. Pick up where you left off

The Creators Update will allow you to sync an app you’re using with the same app on another Windows 10 computer. This will be managed for you by Cortana sending you notifications tracking your synced apps. The intended use scenario is that you would use an app to start work on one computer and then finish things later on another computer. An example: You quickly throw together some notes in the Word app on your Windows 10 computer at home. When you’re at your job, you could then pick up exactly where you left off at home, resuming what you were writing, on the Word app on your office computer.

8. Partial screen grabs

Pressing the keyboard combo of Windows logo, Shift and “S” keys together will evoke a tool to let you capture an area of the screen that you select. The captured image will be copied to the clipboard, from where you can insert into another application, such as a paint program, by pressing the CTRL and “V” keys.

9. Share UI upgrades

Windows 10’s Share function is a holdover from Windows 8. It lets you forward content through Windows apps that support this feature. For example, when you click the Share icon on the Edge browser, a panel slides in from the right, listing the Windows apps, such as the Mail app, through which you can forward a website link.

This UI will be overhauled in the Creators Update: instead, the panel will appear from within the app you’re using and list the Windows apps you can share content to. A new feature called “Near Share” will offer the ability to share to a nearby device via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. This revamped Share UI could work in conjunction with the aforementioned MyPeople so that you can forward items directly to a person in your contacts.

windows10 9Microsoft

10. Virtual touchpad

This tool will be helpful when you connect a Windows 10 tablet (such as a Surface Pro) to an external display, like a TV. If you set it so that the external display functions as an extended screen, and you don’t have a mouse or touchpad connected to the tablet, you’ll be able to summon a virtual touchpad to appear on the tablet screen. It will work as if it’s a real touchpad so that you can control the mouse pointer on the second screen.

Over 10,000 people screened for diabetes in Mumbai

IANS | Jan 29, 2017, 01.29 PM IST

<p>Over 10,000 people screened for diabetes in Mumbai<br></p>Over 10,000 people screened for diabetes in Mumbai

Over 10,000 people were screened for diabetes and its health implications during a diabetes mela held here on Saturday.

The medical camp inaugurated by Maharashtra Education Minister Vinod Tawde, was organised to check the health status of the people here living with the risk of diabetes.

According to the organisers — Gadge Diabetes Center — the mela highlighted the effects and causes of diabetes with the help of skits, music and dance. “The mela helped spread a positive message,” the centre said in a statement.

India is considered as the Diabetes Capital of the world and as per the 2015 reports from International Diabetes Federation, 69.1 million people in India are diabetic.

“Diabetes is increasing exponentially in our country. The only way to curb is to create maximum awareness. By ensuring maximum people are a part of the awareness campaigns we can take a step forward in reducing diabetes,” Pradeep Gadge, Chief Diabetologist, Gadge Diabetes Centre, said.

A recent study at the University of California, San Francisco revealed that alcohol addiction can increase the risk factors of diabetes and high blood pressure.

Gears of War 4 adds multiplayer crossplay for Windows 10, Xbox One gamers

gears of war 4

Microsoft’s ambitious Play Anywhere initiative, which lets PC and Xbox gamers game together, made unexpected strides on Friday, when it was announced that Gears of War 4’s crossplay will expand beyond cooperative mode to include multiplayer competition.

The feature, however, will be limited to Social Quickplay, rather than competitive ranked matches, Microsoft said. So your dreams of a “Super Bowl” of GoW play between the best PC and Xbox players will have to wait.

Interestingly, when Microsoft tested GoW4’s expanded crossplay features at the end of 2016, participation heavily favored the Xbox One. Of the 115,000 players that took part in the test weekend, there was a whopping 91-9 percentage split between the Xbox One and the Windows 10 platform. Over 750,000 matches were played.

To the question of which platform came out on top, Microsoft said the two sides were pretty even: Windows 10 and Xbox players had “closely matched results” when comparing their average kills and deaths, score, and kills per match. Nevertheless, Microsoft said the game’s Core and Competitive rankings will remain separated: Xbox players will only play Windows players, for example, to maintain parity.

“When we looked at the extensive data we received, thanks to the incredible participation from our community, there was a clear message—it works,” the company said in a blog post.

Why this matters: When played with a decent community of polite, competitive opponents, multiplayer gaming can be awesome. Crossplay simply opens up this experience to a larger number of potential players. For its part, Microsoft is really trying to establish Windows and the Xbox as one happy, collective ecosystem, and crossplay is a big part of that.

Windows 10 Build 15019 may be about games, but its many bugs could spoil the fun

Windows 10 game bar beam broadcasting windows 10

The gaming-focused Windows 10 Insider build that Microsoft promised earlier this week, with Game Mode, Beam livestreaming and other features, is rolling out—but with some game-breaking bugs, unfortunately.

What’s officially known as Build 15019 for the Insider Fast Ring also includes a number of more general improvements, including a version of Edge that will read your ebooks aloud and a better out-of-box experience, complete with voice actors to guide you through the process.

If you’re hoping to try out the new PC-centric Game Mode for yourself, though, be wary: Microsoft warned that unspecified “popular games” may experience crashes or black screens when loading, and clicking on certain elements in a Win32 game may cause it to be minimized (and therefore unplayable) unless killed. Even the new Game Mode will show up as OFF when in fact it’s enabled by default. Also, be aware of one download glitch: The issue Microsoft had with its progress bar is still there, so the download will still show “0% completed” even when it’s actually downloading.

“We recognize that this is painful for those wanting to try out the new gaming features announced this week,” Microsoft’s Insider chief, Dona Sarkar, wrote in a blog post. “We deliberated a lot on whether to release this build to Insiders with these issues; however we decided to go ahead and release it as we need feedback from Insiders on other areas of the OS.”

Windows 10’s new Game Mode settings, which are designed to optimize your PC for gaming.

Some great new gaming features

Build 15019 is specifically optimized for gaming, with new additions to both the Xbox One and Windows 10 platforms. (A separate build for Xbox Insiders should roll out today, with support for Screentime, a parental control that is already on Windows 10.) Our previous story outlined the new additions, but we’ll briefly recap them here:

Game Mode: a specific mode for the PC that minimizes the resources other background tasks have at their disposal, giving the game all of the resources your PC can spare. My colleague Brad Chacos has outlined what Game Mode does for your PC. The Windows Game Bar now supports 17 more games in fullscreen mode, including Battlefield 3, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, FIFA 14 and FIFA 17, Rocket League, and more.

Gaming Settings: Microsoft has consolidated gaming controls for Game Bar, GameDVR, and more into a Gaming section in Windows 10’s Settings.

Beam livestreaming: Microsoft bought Beam and its livestreaming technology last year to take the games you’re playing on Windows 10 and the Xbox and broadcast them to others on the Internet. You’ll be able to trigger the Game Bar (Win + G) and show others how fast you can drive in Forza Horizon 3.

Windows 10 download bar

Microsoft

Action Center now keeps tabs on your games.

Microsoft also revealed a small additional convenience: If you buy a game from the Microsoft Store app, you’ll be able to track its download progress in the Action Center notifications. The company also fixed a bug that would crash the display controller if an Xbox controller was attached, and another that could cause the screen to flicker if a player used Alt + Tab to change focus to another window.

A better out-of-box experience

Having just reset a balky Surface Pro 4 that couldn’t get past Build 15002, I can confirm that the out-of-box experience that build introduced is excellent—and Build 15019 promises to improve on it even more. Setting up a new PC is now voice-driven: Cortana asks you the questions you’d normally have to be at your keyboard to answer. (For those who are unable to hear Cortana, there are now subtitles.)

Windows 10 out of the box experience

Microsoft

Cortana will guide you through the new “Out of the box” setup experience,

With build 15002 and the latest build 15019, you can be working away at another PC while Cortana’s voice asks you if you’d like to accept the default options and other questions. It’s fun to holler “Yes!” and keep typing.

At one point during build 15002’s reset process, Cortana’s voice was replaced by a more robotic text-to-speech voice. That’s been fixed, with additional voice acting in place to maintain a consistent, pleasant tone. A bit of spit and polish has updated the UI, including the way in which you sign in with a Microsoft account. Windows Hello enrollment, which simply asks you to smile at the camera for a second or two, has also been updated.

Troubleshooters, all in one place

I have sporadic issues at my home office where my Wi-Fi connection needs to be reset, requiring me to right-click my Wi-Fi icon on the Taskbar and launch the troubleshooter. For Build 15019, Microsoft’s grouped all of the Troubleshooter options inside Settings > Update & Security > Troubleshoot so you can see the complete list, including tools for resolving printer issues, Windows updates, Bluetooth, and more.

A bevy of other useful features

Build 15019 adds a number of other useful features, most of which don’t require that much additional explanation:

  • A new “read aloud” button in Microsoft Edge will read ebooks stored in Edge in 24 languages.
  • Windows 10 Microsoft edge aloud

    Edge’s new “read aloud” interface.

  • Full-color emoji, on those sites that use them.
  • Blue light support, which removes the blue colors your display produces late at night so as to help prevent insomnia. (Microsoft now calls the feature “night light.”)
  • If you use the Hyper-V feature to create virtual machines, you can now resize the window and the guest OS will rescale the resolution appropriately.

More on the report:

Why is the gap between male and female diverging? 

With the rise in government taking measures to secure the future and health of the girl child across the nation, there are multiple reasons why inequities still exist and obstruct the growth and development of girl children. Some of the major inequities are primarily due to differential care amongst male and female child, gender inequality exists also due to sex selective abortions and neglecting the female child post birth; thus, putting them to the risk of malnourishment and retardation of growth.
