How to create a capsule wardrobe for holiday?

News4u-Travel Desk- London: Packing for a weekend getaway can lead to a love-hate relationship with your wardrobe, but it is necessary to pick only the must have things to avoid the risk of overloaded luggage.

Members of online fashion site bonprix have compiled their top tips for creating the ultimate weekend-away capsule wardrobe:

* Have the basics covered: A successful capsule wardrobe should include all the essentials; from jeans to jewellery, but not everything! Keep it basic.

* Keep it neutral: Aim for colours that complement each other, you can always use accessories or jewellery to add a pop of colour.

* Less is more: Use your styling skills to create as many looks as possible with a few key pieces. Try different variations with your items to see which are the most versatile.]

* Choose separates: This will make it easier to interchange and mix and match your outfits, so you can create more styles while taking up less space in your suitcase or wardrobe.

* Choose a style theme: if you’re heading to the countryside, pack your suitcase accordingly. This will help you cull the items you ‘think’ you should take - do you really need high heels in a forest?

* Accessorise: When in doubt, accessorise! Accessories will add the finishing touch, that extra detail or that pop of colour to complete your look. IANS

Think again about this silent killer

News4u-Features desk- KOCHI: World Hepatitis Day was observed on 28 July, to improve the public awareness about viral hepatitis and bring political attention to this major disease.

Viral hepatitis is the eighth biggest killer disease in the world and because of this WHO has announced world hepatitis day as one among the four disease specific days to be celebrated. Hepatitis refers to a state of inflammation of the liver caused by many agents which include virus, alcohol, drugs and many infections. Viral hepatitis can infect anyone with a little unguarded exposure to infectious materials which leads to few severe cases of hepatitis.

It is estimated that more than 500 million people are affected worldwide and at least 1.5 million deaths occur each year because of this preventable as well as treatable disease. On research, it was found that not many people are aware of hepatitis and the various ways to prevent the spread of infection. It is therefore important for people to understand the various ways of preventing hepatitis and make it a social responsibility to make maximum number of people aware of the various modern medical tools available to diagnose and treat viral hepatitis
Types of Hepatitis

Many viruses can infect liver, the common types include hepatitis A, B, C, D and E.

Hepatitis A - Commonly known as HAV or Hepatitis A Virus, occurs commonly due to consumption of contaminated uncooked food or water. It is seen in areas of poor socio-economic status. Mostly the disease presents with self-limiting jaundice, but rarely it can lead to fatal hepatitis. Vaccination against hepatitis A helps to prevent the disease.

Hepatitis B - Approximately 2 per cent - 4 per cent of Indian population is affected with HBV. Hepatitis B is mostly transmitted through blood and other body fluids. HBV can occur in people using unsterilized needles for injection or while getting a body tattoo done and by sharing personal items like toothbrush or razors. It can also spread from an infected mother to baby during the time of delivery. Universal infant hepatitis B vaccination has resulted in substantial reduction in hepatitis B. This virus can cause cirrhosis of liver and liver cancer.

Hepatitis Delta - Commonly known as HDV or Hepatitis Delta Virus Infection is considered as the most severe viral hepatitis in human although it is seldom encountered. HDV occurs only to people already infected by HBV which occurs due to the contact with infected blood. HDV accelerates the rate of liver damage in HBV infected patients.

Hepatitis C - Also known as HCV affects 1.5 per cent of Indian population. Hepatitis C is a blood borne infection mostly transmitted by blood and blood products as well as needle sharing by intravenous drug use. Long term HCV infection can lead to cirrhosis and liver cancer.

Hepatitis E -This is caused by hepatitis E virus and is transmitted by contaminated food and drinking water. Mostly it causes self-limiting illness but can lead to severe hepatitis if acquired during pregnancy.

Treatment and cure

Viral hepatitis is a preventable disease. Each one of us can get it, yet it rarely affects those to constantly guard against this. Hepatitis A and E are mostly self-limiting and can be easily cured with proper rest and abstaining from alcohol and taking medicine which would help you relieve the symptoms. Hepatitis B and C can produce long term serious consequences and hence one should seek proper medical attention. Currently many drugs are available for treating the illness. Across the globe millions of volunteers participate in World Hepatitis Day to raise awareness and focus global attention to this deadly disease. Let’s play our role and be a part of this campaign.

Sebi fines RIL Rs. 13-cr for non-disclosure of earnings ratio

News4u-Business Desk- In one of its biggest penalties for non-disclosure of a key earnings ratio, Sebi imposed a penalty of Rs. 13-crore on corporate behemoth Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) for violation of the Listing Agreement.

The order follows a probe by the capital markets regulator in an over seven-year old case involving alleged irregularities in issuance of 12-crore warrants by Mukesh Ambani-led RIL to its promoters entitling its holders to subscribe to equivalent number of equity shares of RIL.

It was alleged that this issuance in April 2007 had resulted in diluting the pre-issue paid-up equity share capital of RIL, but the company repeatedly failed to disclose a key earnings ratio for as many as six quarters.

Subsequently, Sebi began adjudication proceedings to probe the alleged violation of relevant clauses of the Listing Agreement and the Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act (SCRA) for not disclosing to stock exchanges the Diluted Earnings Per Share (DEPS) as prescribed for the quarterly and annual disclosures, the regulator said in its 15-page order.

A show-cause notice was served on RIL in February last year, listing out allegations levelled against the company.

After looking into the company’s reply and further probe into the matter, Sebi said that EPS (Basic or Diluted) is a vital factor or one of the fundamental tools for the investors while arriving at decision to continue or invest in the shares of a particular company.

The regulator said further that RIL “under an obligation to disclose separately the DEPS for the quarters ended June 2007, September 2007, December 2007, March 2008, June 2008 and September 2008, which the noticee had failed to do so”.

“In view of aforesaid observations, facts and records of the case”, Sebi said, the company was in violation of the relevant provisions of the Listing Agreement and the SCRA and therefore it was liable to a penalty.

Noting that a specific quantum of any direct or indirect unfair gain made by RIL and the loss caused to the investors were not available on records, Sebi said that “the fact cannot be ignored that millions of shareholders/investors were deprived of correct disclosures about DEPS.”

“As regards to the repetitive nature of default, as observed above that the Notice had failed to disclose the DEPS repetitively for the six quarters. Hence, an appropriate penalty needs to be imposed upon the Noticee, taking into account the aforesaid gravity of the violations committed,” Sebi said.

Accordingly, the regulator has decided to impose a penalty of Rs. one-crore for violation of Listing Agreement and of another Rs. 12-crore for violating the SCRA provision. RIL has been asked to pay the total amount of Rs. 13-crore within 45 days through a demand draft in favour of ‘SEBI - Penalties Remittable to Government of India’.

Gadkari: Steps will be taken to restart e-rickshaw operations

News4u-News Desk- Union Road Transport and Highways Minister Nitin Gadkari said on Friday that steps will be taken to restart e-rickshaw operations in Delhi after the high court gives its nod.

“The e-rickshaw issue is in the court. We have submitted our suggestions in the court. We have kept the provisions of the Light Motor Vehicle in our mind for the purpose of insurance in the event of an accident… We will be taking steps on commencing the operations of e-rickshaws after the court gives permission for it,” he told reporters on the sidelines of a workshop on ‘Rurban Mission’.

The high court on July 31 had ordered a ban on plying of e-rickshaws in the national capital, saying they are illegally running on Delhi roads and prima facie a hazard to other traffic as well citizens.

The ban on e-rickshaws in the city is still continuing as the Delhi High Court on August 5 made it clear that it cannot allow them to ply unless there are guidelines to regulate them and asked the Centre to come up with draft regulations on the issue.
