Half a million people in Yorkshire waiting for hospital treatment – this surgery has the longest waiting times – Yorkshire Post

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

HealthCoronavirusHalf a million people were on the waiting list for treatment in Yorkshire and the North East in August, official figures show.

Sunday, 18th October 2020, 11:45 am

The regions, which are often combined for statistical purposes, had an average waiting time of 12 weeks.

Though this is below the Governments pledge of 18 weeks from diagnosis to treatment, 43 per cent of people waited longer, many people significantly so.

The figures show there were some people who waited as long as two years for treatment, with plastic surgery having the longest waiting times.

Cardiothoracic surgery had the shortest waiting times but considerably fewer patients than other areas of medicine.

Ear, nose and throat and opthalmology had the largest number of patients and some of the longest waiting times.

Consulant opthalmic surgeon at Optegra, Shafiq Rehman, told The Yorkshire Post there had been a dramatic increase in cataract referrals in recent months, as people struggled to cope in lockdown with increasingly poor vision, and said he expected waiting times to get worse.

It is highly likely that the additional pressure caused by the fallout from Covid-19 will dwarf the usual seasonal pressures for the NHS and sadly the result is likely to be that elective NHS activity - routine out-patient appointments, cataract surgery, elective hip/knee surgeries - will be most heavily affected and I foresee many areas of the UK experiencing long delays to access routine elective medical care in the coming six to twelve months ahead.

He urged people with medical concerns not to risk making problems worse by delaying seeing a doctor.

Providers’ rocky road to recovery could last into 2022 – Healthcare Dive

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

As health systems are set to start reporting their third quarter earnings results this week, new research highlights hospitals' ongoing fears about financial viability, patient volumes and supply stocks.

That's as new hotspots in the Midwest report rising COVID-19 case loads and hospitals prepare for the pandemic to collide with flu season, potentially causing stress on capacity once again.

The takeaway is that most hospitals aren't expecting a return to normal anytime soon, although it depends on the trajectory on ongoing efforts to develop vaccines and treatments. Most executives see 2022 as the timeline for seeing some regularity, according to Kaufman Hall.

About 20% of hospital executives surveyed by the group recently said they were "extremely concerned" about their financial viability until an effective vaccine or treatment is available. Another 50% said they were "moderately concerned."

Some major hospital systems, however, have not fit this pattern. Earlier this month, HCA Healthcare previewed better-than-expected third quarter financial results and said it was returning all $6 billion it received from CMS in federal COVID-19 relief funding.

How health systems are doing now depends larger on their status at the beginning of this year, as well as market position and size, Lance Robinson, managing director at Kaufman Hall and one of the report's authors, said.

"If you were strong going into the COVID crisis, you're probably able to weather it much better than if you were teetering on low margins and low volumes to begin with," he said. "So I think it really just exposed those health systems and providers that were already not doing well."

Meanwhile, patient volumes are falling again after a rebound in early fall. And older people at a higher risk for severe symptoms from COVID-19 are less likely to return for care, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation analysis of Epic EHR data.

That research showed that total admissions for this year will come in about 10% lower than had been forecast, possibly more if restrictions on elective procedures are reinstituted later this year.

"[I]f the coronavirus begins to spread more rapidly later in the fall and non-emergency procedures are once again delayed, it could have serious consequences both for hospitals' financial stability and the health of patients," according to the report.

Outpatient volumes are also rebounding at a varying rate, according to a Commonwealth Fund report published last week. While some areas like dermatology and opthalmology are seeing rates actually exceed pre-pandemic levels, most are still falling short. Pulmonology, for example, is 20% below pre-pandemic levels still.

Multiple reports have shown crashes in pediatric visits, putting a strain on children's hospitals across the country.

Hospital executives are also dealing with changes in workforce and expenses. Three-quarters told Kaufman Hall they are ramping up monitoring and resources going toward mental health and burnout concerns among staff.

They noted that costs for personal protective equipment and labor expenses for nursing staff have increased significantly.

The Kaufman Hall survey conducted in August found 40% saying case numbers are rising and 36% saying they're staying level. Nearly half said the length of stay among COVID-19 patients had led to them canceling elective procedures.

That isn't likely to have improved in the past two months. Eight states set new records last week for novel coronavirus infections recorded in a single day, according to the COVID Tracking Project, and fears about another surge in the coming weeks abound.

Volumes are also varying by service area. About 60% of respondents said oncology levels had returned to 90% of what they were before the pandemic. Not quite half said the same about cardiology surveys while orthopaedics, neurology and radiology trailed at 37% reporting nearly normal volumes. Pediatrics was in the last at 22%

Executives said they are worried about the expected changes in payer mix. The biggest concern is an increase is uncompensated care, followed by higher percentage of self-pay and Medicaid patients.

Those concerns are far from unfounded. At the beginning of this month, more than 4 million people had enrolled in Medicaid because of the pandemic and resulting recession. And more than 14 million may have lost health coverage because of job losses.

To help offset those adjustments, executives are turning to supply reprocessing most, according to Kaufman Hall.After that, nearly 60% said they implemented furloughs and 56%instituted salary freezes or reductions. That was followed by permanent workforce reduction (31%), suspending matching contributions to retirement plans (25%) and restructuring physician contracts (19%).

Permission granted by Kaufman Hall

Supply chain concerns have not entirely waned. In recent months, hospitals have been focused on building up stockpiles of personal protective equipment to prepare for potential case surges. Some states, like California and New York,have mandated they have a 90-day supply on hand.

That presents a new challenge of logistics and warehouse management, said Jeff Ashkenase, group vice president at group purchasing organization Premier.

Providers are generally feeling much better about their access to PPE than they did in March and April, but they may never feel secure that they have enough of everything that could be needed, he said.

"So, we're sort of operating in peril," he said. "We're operating in normal cases and volumes and the types of work that we did and simultaneously building up the stockpile."

Only 3% of hospital staff responding to a recent survey from Premier said accessing the Strategic National Stockpile through their state was an "easy process." About 30% said it was difficult, while 44% said they "managed" and 22% did not access the national stockpile.

Ashkenase called for more coordination to improve the efficiency of shared stockpiles. "With all the stockpiles, the need for more transparency on what's in the stockpile and how to access it, when you will get it, will be beneficial," he said.

Respondents to Premier said regulatory flexibility had been most helpful to them in preparing for another wave. Expanded telehealth coverage and payment was cited the most, followed by reimbursement for alternative care settings and workforce changes like allowing clinicians to practice at the top of their license.

As major public hospital operators begin their Q3 earnings reports with Tenet leading the pack Tuesday, Robinson said he'll be watching for what areas are seeing patients returning and how quickly.

"And then on the expense side, it's obviously the PPE and the staffing requirements that are going to need to be out there, especially if we have a third wave of COVID," he said.

And looking even farther out, the traditional method of looking to the past year's metrics won't work when looking toward 2021 and 2022, Robinson said.

"I think clients are struggling with, 'How do I even begin to build a budget for 2021? What does that look like?'" he said.

Sherlock Holmes meets Jose Rizal in this debut horror story collection – ABS-CBN News

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

Culture Books

The e-book debut also delivers all new Pinoy monstersmeaning none of your usual aswangs and tikbalangs.

Halloween is just around the corner, and since youll most likely be spending the spooky celebration at home, you might as well curl up with a good horror book. Writer, musician, filmmaker and podcaster Wincy Aquino Ong has released his first collection of short fiction entitledTales For A Rainy Season. If youre looking for fresh new scares, this might be the reading material for you.

Ive always been a fan of Rod SerlingsThe Twilight Zone,says the 38-year-old. So I thought to myself: I want to write a book thats sort of a Pinoy version ofThe Twilight Zonemix in the supernatural with mundane details all Filipinos can relate to, and end the story with a note the reader wasnt expecting.

In writing the book, Ong challenged himself to steer clear of whats been done before in Filipino horror fictionthe aswangs, the white ladies, the tikbalangs that are common fixtures in the genre.

Apparently, theres still a lot to be mined in Pinoy horror culture after youve gone past the aswangs from Siquijor, the White Lady from Balete Drive, and the Snake Man in Robinsons Galleria, says Ong. I looked deeper into the annals of our local folklore and urban legends, these rabbit holes on the Internet, and I found so many obscure gems that a horror writer can easily turn into a short story.

Tales for a Rainy Seasonclaims it has everythingfrom Nardong Putik (the gangster who could turn himself invisible by using consecrated mud) to Baguio hippies who practice ritual suicides. One of the stories explores that urban legend of Jose Rizal being the man behind the Whitechapel Murders.

Entitled The Opthalmologists Case, Ongs alternate take on the Sherlock-Holmes-meets-Rizal story comes from all the Rizaliana he imbibed from prep to college in Ateneo de Manila. Marilou Diaz-Abaya, one of Ongs teachers and the director of the 1998 epic on the National Hero, also shared with Ongs class the wealth of information she discovered while working on the biopicstuff not usually included in a Rizal class.

One of the pieces of trivia from those classes thats stayed with Ong is Rizals stint as a horror writer. He wrote one calledJunto al Pasig, which is like aStranger Thingsadventure tale where a group of kids fight Satan during a Holy Week procession. Truly cool stuff, says theTales for A Rainy Seasonauthor.

Which brings us back to The Opthalmologists Case. I wanted to explore that urban legend that connected Rizal to the Jack the Ripper murders in 1888. Historically speaking, he was there in London when it all happened! And since Im a big Sherlock Holmes fan, I couldnt think of any other detective who could dig up the case...I pictured more as a fugitive movie, where Rizal is on the run from the law, and Sherlock and Watson are on his tail.

Ong describes the story as an exciting chase through the many corners of 19th century London, and via the story, readers will get a glimpse of the life of an Ilustrado in those timesthe boarding houses, their habits and vices, the nightlife in the seedier parts of the city. More than that, I wrote the story because I wanted to see how the smartest Filipino there ever was can match up to the terrifying mind that is Sherlock Holmes.

Ong is not exactly a stranger to the horror genre. He is the writer and director behind the 2011 Cinemalaya horror filmSan Lazaroand 2014sOvertimeunder GMA Films.For him, a good horror story should have other things going for it than the scares. A good horror story must also have humor and drama.Also, it all boils down to the hero of your story and how much you care for him or her, says the author. Before you expose your hero to the ghost or the monster, he should be someone you root for and care about.

Tales for a Rainy Season,now available for download at the Amazon Kindle Store and Kindle Unlimited.

Do Blue Light Glasses Really Work or Are They Just a Hype? – Science Times

Saturday, October 17th, 2020

Blue light may be environmentally friendly, but it has its dark sides too. Harvard Medical School' Harvard Health Publishingreports that blue light affects the circadian rhythm and potentially cause diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

Long ago, humans tend to spend their night in darkness. The main source of light back then was the Sun, which is up only in the daytime. But with the technology available in this era, access to light is much easier, and most of the time, people tend to abuse it without realizing its price.

For instance, blue light can cause strain, irritation, and dryness of the eye after a long day of staring at the screen. But since most people nowadays cannot escape having to use computers or gadgets, it has become hard to manage the adverse effects of blue light on the eyes.

The trendy blue light glasses might help people suffering from these effects. But many are asking if these glasses would genuinely help them handle blue light or using blue light glasses is just another hype?

Blue light glasses are specially crafted to block or trap blue light from the screens of computers, phones, tablets and other gadgets. The lenses help reduce potential damage to the retina from prolonged exposure to blue light, according to Cleveland Clinic.

But because blue light glasses are somewhat new, there is only a little research about them, and the FDA does not regulate the eyewear because it is not sold as a medical device.

According to the American Academy of Opthalmology,people need not wear blue light glasses or any eyewear for those who frequently use the computers. They said that digital devices do not lead to eye disease and do not cause eyestrain. The problem is that the eyes tend to be overused in using digital devices, hence the eyestrain.

"The symptoms of digital eye strain are linked to how we use our digital devices, not the blue light coming out of them," they added.

But some experts agree to the benefits of the blue light glasses like Greg Rogers, a senior optician at Eyeworks in Decatur, GA. He said that customers in their shop have benefited from the glasses and would opt to wear one or use a special screen for their computers when staring at screens.

Moreover, the American Optometric Association's former president Samuel Pierce, OD, said that he recommended using blue light glasses to lessen eyestrain.

The digital era has brought more blue light to the world than ever. From televisions, smartphones, laptops, and tablets, everyone is surrounded by blue light, WebMD reported.

In a survey in 2018, it was found out by Acuvue that office workers work about six and a half hours per day sitting in front t of a computer. While another survey by Pew Research Centerfound that 28% of American adults say they go online almost always, and younger ones are online the most.

But still, most research suggests that digital overuse and not the blue light causes eye problems, although those who wear blue light glasses tend to report less eyestrain than those who do not.

However, Susan Primo, OD, an optometrist and professor of ophthalmology at Emory University is more worried about how blue light glasses are used in some misleading marketing.

According to her, companies may use words that will not mislead their customers into believing that the glasses can cure them of their eye problems.

"They can use words like 'may' and 'might.' Marketing can take things to a level that might not be a sound recommendation, sound science, for people to go out and get them," Primo said.

What causes pink eye? Heres everything you need to know – TODAY

Saturday, October 17th, 2020

Looking into the mirror and seeing that one of your eyes is bloodshot can be alarming. This condition, known as pink eye, or conjunctivitis, is not only unsightly it can be highly contagious. Understanding pink eye and what causes it can help us avoid getting infected and spreading it to others.

Pink eye is an inflammation or infection of the membrane that lines the white part of your eye (called the conjunctiva).

Types of pink eye include:

Only the viral and bacterial types of conjunctivitis are contagious. Pink eye from allergies or irritants is not contagious.

When the conjunctiva membrane becomes infected, it turns pink or red. Other symptoms of pink eye may include eye watering, itchiness, discharge or crusting of the eyelids and lashes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Just like the common cold, pink eye can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Viral conjunctivitis can occur when you contract certain viruses, such as an adenovirus. Bacterial conjunctivitis can be triggered by staph or strep, or other bacterial infections. You can also get pink eye as a result of seasonal allergies.

Dr. Ken Miller, an ophthalmology specialist in West Orange, New Jersey, told TODAY that it's important to pay attention to whether any yellow discharge develops. If there is yellow discharge, the conjunctivitis is bacterial and needs to be treated with an antibiotic.

Parents, in particular, should be on the lookout for this yellow discharge if a child has pink eye. Dr. Steph Lee, a pediatrician in Reading, Pennsylvania, and a spokesperson for the American Academy of Pediatrics, said children should see a pediatrician if they have this symptom or if they need to wipe their eyes several times an hour. If they have pain in their eyes or blurry vision, take them to their pediatrician immediately, said Lee.

If the discharge is red or watery, however, the conjunctivitis is likely to be the result of a viral infection, therefore, it cant be treated with antibiotics. Basically, you just have to ride it out, said Miller. In this situation, a warm compress can help soothe the infected eye (or eyes).

Never underestimate the power of a warm compress, said Lee. For viral conjunctivitis, she recommended applying a warm compress four to five times per day for about four to five minutes at a time to help bring down the swelling.

Conjunctivitis can also be caused by a basic irritant in the eye, like a loose eyelash, dust or a contaminant on a contact lens. A warm compress can be used to help ease symptoms with this type of pink eye too.

If you notice redness or other symptoms in your child's eye that might indicate a conjunctivitis infection, rinse their eyes with warm water before doing anything else, advised Dr. Lee. Then monitor any symptoms. If your child's pink eye symptoms last longer than a week, see a doctor or pediatrician.

Although pink eye is not usually dangerous and most cases resolve within a week, it can still cause a lot of discomfort, so it's best to try and avoid getting it. Conveniently, the most effective measures for preventing pink eye are things you're probably already doing to protect against COVID-19, including: washing your hands frequently and avoiding touching your face and eyes as much as possible. Rubbing your eyes significantly increases your chances of contracting conjunctivitis and spreading it to other people. If someone in your bubble does get pink eye, everyone should double down on their hand-washing efforts to prevent it from spreading around the house. One sneaky way that pink eye can be transferred, Dr. Miller pointed out, is through sharing a towel.

Recent studies, including one study that was published in JAMA Opthalmology in August, suggest that there may be a link between pink eye symptoms and COVID-19, though more research needs to be done, especially considering that pink eye does not appear to be a very common symptom of COVID-19.

"About 20% of children may get pink eye with COVID," said Lee, "whereas in adults, it's more rare, closer to 1 to 3% and not usually a stand-alone symptom. This might be because children are more prone to rub or touch their face when they're sick, since COVID can spread via eye discharge." Lee also cautioned that "if you have pink eye and know of exposure to someone with COVID, or have respiratory symptoms, you should contact your doctor."

The pandemic has taught us all to be more mindful about how we interact with our environment. This newfound awareness can help limit instances of pink eye as well. Pay attention to what you touch and be conscious of any symptoms of pink eye that may arise. These days, said Miller, no one should be touching their face anyway.

Take care of your eyes, here are some tips – The New Indian Express

Tuesday, October 13th, 2020

By Express News Service

HYDERABAD: Reduced or absent eyesight can have major and long-lasting effects on all aspects of life, including daily personal activities, interacting with the community, school and work opportunities and the ability to access public services. Recently, World Sight Day was observed with the theme Hope in Sight to focus on vision impairment and blindness.

Causes of blindness and visual impairment in India According to a National Blindness & Visual Impairment Survey 2015-19 conducted by Dr Rajendra Prasad Institute of Opthalmic Sciences, AIIMS, Delhi as part of National Program for Control of Blindness & Visual Impairment, Government of India, Cataract continue to be the major cause of blindness and responsible for 66.2% of blindness, severe visual impairment (80.7%), and moderate visual impairment (70.2%).

Refractive error was the most important cause of visual impairment and second important cause of blindness in 2001 but the current survey showed that refractive error is not an important cause of blindness. Corneal blindness emerged as the second important cause of blindness.Beside this, the proportions of blindness due to complications of cataract surgery have also increased, says Dr Alpa Atul Poorabia, consultant ophthalmologist at Apollo Spectra Hospitals in Kondapur.

Giving details about some of the treatment options, the doctor said:Treatment for vision impairment depends on the extent of the vision loss and the cause. Following points are very important not only to find the cause but also to prevent further damage and treat according to the cause of vision impairment.

There must be regular eye checks after age of 40 years, especially for diabetics. There must also be detailed eye examination for children, before entering school to rule out refractive error. If you have a family history of glaucoma, then go for check- ups yearly.

The following actions can prevent visual impairment

Eat healthy

Wear good quality sunglasses whenever outdoor to protect eyes from ultraviolet radiation

Wear safety/protective tools during hazardous work

Maintain proper hygiene

Exercise regularly

Avoid smoking, alcohol and use of illegal drugs

Computer Glasses For Kids Don’t Need To Be Expensive | – Moms

Wednesday, September 30th, 2020

Computer glasses are marketed to kids who use screens & now that more kids are doing virtual schooling, do we need expensive blue light lenses?

There is no overlooking that since we have been home due to the coronavirus pandemic in March that kids' screen time has skyrocketed. And really, how could it not? Even if you were able to be super strict about limiting their time on devices throughout the summer, now that we are back to school and a lot of people virtual learning, kids are back behind the computer quite a bit. This has us thinking a lot about our children's eye and really how healthy it is to be having that much screen time.

Because of this, something called "computer glasses" orblue-light-blocking glasses are starting to gain some popularity. According to PopSugar, their claim is to help "to combat the apparent shorter, blue-light wavelengths that are emitted from digital screens."

But are they really necessary?

As parents, we worry so much about our kid's eyes being behind the computer all day during virtual learning. We know how we feel starring at the computer screens all day for work and want to make sure that they are protected from anything harmful.

Dr. Scott Edmonds, an optometrist,shared withPOPSUGAR that kids eyes are"still-developing eyes generally allow for more high-energy blue light to reach and potentially damage their retinas" and that excessive blue-light emissions "may produce oxidative and phytotoxic damage to cells in the cornea and retina of the eye."

Digging deeper though, a recent study done by theInternational Review of Ophthalmic Opticsshows that there is a lack of"strong evidence" whenever it comes to the connection between eye strain and blue light.

RELATED:Students' Reaction To Teacher Disappearing From Video Meeting Is Priceless

Here's the thing though: the purpose of blue light, especially in relation to screens, is to keep people alert. However, it doesn't always come from screens. Nope. It's actually everywhere and can be found influorescent lighting, LED, but mostly - it comes from the sun.

Yup. And theAmerican Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) even says that we get10 times as much blue light from the sun than we do from a computer screen.

"There's no scientific evidence to suggest that blue light from our screens or devices are damaging our eyes or our children's eyes," Dr. Purnima Patel, the clinical spokesperson for the AAO, said in a statement. "That's why the American Academy of Opthalmology does not recommend blue-light-blocking computer glasses."

So back to our original point about these expensive glasses that moms are fretting over purchasing: don't waste your money.

Wednesday, September 30th, 2020

Medical equipment manufacturer Wipro GE Healthcare has partnered with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) to open a research lab.

The lab is located at the Department of Computational and Data Sciences (CDS) in Bangalore. It will specialise in healthcare diagnostics, deep learning technology, ML and AI systems. Work will also be done on digital interfaces to produce sophisticated diagnostic and medical image reconstruction techniques.

This research unit will involve around fifty students and three faculty members of IISc to begin with. They will work closely with clinicians as well as Wipro GE Healthcare to integrate computational models into clinical workflows, to help doctors improve patient outcomes.

The partners are aiming for this collaboration between the worlds of industry and academia to solve some of the toughest challenges healthcare faces, using artificial intelligence and machine learning. One of their work streams will be exploring deep learning models to analyse lung lesions caused by COVID-19 via ultrasound and CT images.

Additionally they will apply deep learning models to improve opthalmology imaging, and medical image reconstruction methods.

The IISc was established in 1909 through a partnership between founder of the Tata group Jamsetji Nusserwanji Tata, the Maharaja of Mysore, and the Government of India. Over the 111 years since its establishment, IISc has become a major institution for advanced scientific and technological research and education in India.

Wipro GE Healthcare is supporting the research lab with a grant as part of its CSR efforts. This funding will be used to equip the lab with the necessary hardware and software. This includes state-of-the-art deep learning servers and an advanced visualization platform.

Commenting on the collaboration, Dileep Mangsuli, Chief Technology Officer at GE Healthcare South Asia said: The world's healthcare is transforming through use of digital technologies which can enable precision health. This transformation can be accelerated by building a collaborative ecosystem of industry and academia partners.

"This Healthcare Innovation Lab at IISc will help bring to market unique digital solutions which will get integrated into our Edison platform and intelligent devices, helping clinicians solve some of the toughest healthcare challenges.

Prof. Phaneendra Yalavarthy, convener of the lab as well as the Chair of the Office of Development and Alumni Affairs at IISc, said: Private-Public partnership is in the DNA of IISc and this collaborative lab in the space of artificial intelligence in healthcare funded by Wipro GE Healthcare is timely, given the push for digital technologies.

"Translation of the research work carried out in the lab into the clinic will be the priority, and there is no better industry partner in India than Wipro GE Healthcare that can accelerate this. This is only the beginning of the collaboration and we are hoping to scale up the research activities in the near future.

More Elmiron Lawsuits, including Canada Class Actions, and the Impact of Vision Loss –

Wednesday, September 30th, 2020

Santa Clara, CAMore Elmiron lawsuits are being filed in the U.S. and Canada has filed two class action lawsuits, all alleging the interstitial cystitis drug can cause permanent vision damage.

While plaintiffs complaints differ regarding how long Elmiron was used to treat interstitial cystitis, and a range of vision problems have been cited, all lawsuits, including the class action in British Columbia and the other in Quebec, are similar. All claim the manufacturers failed to disclose the serious link between Elmiron use and significant visual damage, including pigmentary maculopathy and Elmiron did not properly warn patients of the risks, according to the Quebec complaint.

In August 2020, two women in the U.S. filed lawsuits against Elmiron manufacturers Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Janssen, Bayer and Tevaaccusing them of failure to warn consumers of Elmirons risk, negligence, designing Elmiron in a way that makes the drug defective and hazardous to health, and fraudulent misrepresentation of the risks associated with Elmiron. One woman had taken Elmiron for about four years, the other woman ten years. These complaints (cases are Johns v. Alza Corp. et al., case number 3:20-cv-10341, and Levy v. Alza Corp., case number 3:20-cv-10342, both in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey).

The British Columbia plaintiff, Arenlea Felker, filed the Elmiron side effects class action lawsuit against Janssen Inc. and Teva Branded Pharmaceutical Products R&D Inc. Felker, prescribed Elmiron to treat interstitial cystitis in 2005 and continued to take the medication daily, allegesthat the drug caused permanent vision-threatening eye disease called pigmentary maculopathy.

Missing Bengaluru youth helped many join IS, killed in Syria, says probe – The Indian Express

Tuesday, September 15th, 2020

Written by Johnson T A | Bengaluru | Updated: September 14, 2020 8:12:29 amInvestigations have revealed that Masood, then 27, who left behind his parents, wife and two young children, was closely associated with the IS in Syria and Iraq and was a key contact in Syria for Bengaluru youths trying to join the terror outfit. (Representational)

A business management graduate belonging to a wealthy Bengaluru family who has been missing for around seven years and was suspected to have joined the Islamic State is now known to have been killed in Syria.

Sources said the death of Faiz Masood had been confirmed by a doctor arrested in Bengaluru recently by the NIA in connection with an Islamic State Khorasan Province case. Abdur Rahman, an opthalmologist, was among the Bengaluru youths who travelled to Syria in 2013-14 to join the IS.

Investigations have revealed that Masood, then 27, who left behind his parents, wife and two young children, was closely associated with the IS in Syria and Iraq and was a key contact in Syria for Bengaluru youths trying to join the terror outfit.

Questioning by the NIA, other central and state agencies of Rahman and an alleged associate a fellow doctor, also from Bengaluru has reportedly revealed that the two of them had met Masood at the Syrian border town of Atme, when they crossed over from a Turkey refugee camp in end 2013.

Rahman and his associate, both 22 and medical students at the time, said Masood died in an attack on a camp that left one of them with minor injuries. This prompted them to give up plans of joining the IS and return within days of making it to Syria, seeking financial help of their parents, officials said.

Investigators claimed Rahman and his associate, who went to become doctors after returning to India, admitted that Masoods death, the injury to one of them, as well as the serious infighting they saw among IS cadre had disillusioned them.

Another alleged associate of Rahman, an aeronautical engineer, has reportedly also told investigators that Masood had facilitated his travel to Syria to join the IS. He left before the two medical students and stayed longer before suffering an injury to his arm and returning.

Masood had left for Qatar in September 2013 and disappeared soon after. His disappearance was not reported to the police by his family. Security agencies stumbled upon his name in 2014-15, as being one of those from India possibly killed in fighting in Syria, when they began looking closely at identities of IS recruits from India.

Investigations being carried out by multiple agencies have revealed that Masood was part of a group of wealthy Muslim youths from east Bengaluru who met often in 2012-13 and discussed religion. Several from the group later left to join the IS when it was established around mid-2013.

An online blog Masood maintained between 2010 and 2011 shows he was deeply affected by the plight of poor Muslims in Bengaluru. In blog posts in 2010 he sought funds for an orphanage, extolled Muslims to donate blood and narrated stories of a child and a young man in dire need of funds for medical care to save their lives.

In March 2010, he wrote, The Muslim community might be a minority in this country but when it comes to the population of the slums we are the majority. Many efforts are being made to improve the condition of the people. But unless the realization and awareness of their condition doesnt spread among the family (Muslims) things will not change.

Investigations have revealed that the Syria trip in 2013-14 of Rahman and others was also facilitated by a dentist and a computer applications graduate who earlier lived in Bengaluru and are currently working in Saudi Arabia.

Rahman was arrested on August 17 by the NIA on charges of conspiring with Jahanazaib Wani and his wife, held from New Delhi in March, to carry out activities of the Islamic State of Khorasan Province unit in India. In its statement, the NIA said Rahman was in the process of developing a medical application for helping injured ISIS cadres in conflict-zones and a weaponry-related application for the benefit of ISIS fighters.

In the first chargesheet filed in the case last week, the NIA alleged that Wani, who belongs to Kashmir, and others were also provoking some gullible youth to participate in anti-CAA protests actively. In case these protests failed to provoke the Muslims, they were planning for arsoning of Government buildings & public property so that riots could happen and they could exploit the sentiments of Muslims, the NIA said.

The reason your face mask might be causing dry eye – The List

Friday, September 11th, 2020

Eye doctors say MADE, like maskne orfogged-up glasses, are not reasons to skip a mask. "The real reason for bringing this to people's attention is to say, 'Hey, if you notice this, this is why it's happening and let's help you manage your dry eye while you continue to wear your mask," Lyndon Jones, the director of the Center for Ocular Research and Education at Canada's University of Waterloo tells The Washington Post.

To keep MADE at bay, doctors suggest you find a face mask that fits properly, so that air has less of a chance of escaping from the top. Also, step away from the computer every 20 minutes to give your eyes a break. And speak to an eye specialist when you feel an early onset of MADE, which includes discomfort and blurred vision.

Much as we hate all the associated problems that come with wearing face masks, there is a compelling reason you need to keep them on. The CDC says clinical studies have shown that face masks are an important ally in the pandemic, because they catch potentially infectious droplets before they spread through coughing, sneezing, talking, or raising your voice. This means masks, along with social distancing, are still the best way to keep the virus from spreading.
