Afghan girls granted US visas for robotics competition after twice being denied


There will be a team of Afghan girls to enter the United States for a robotics competition, he said to the political aspects, after twice his visa applications were rejected for unknown reasons. White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders Huckabee told The Associated Press that President Donald Trump intervened so girls could enter the United States.

The decision to deny visas to the team of six teenagers has received criticism from human rights groups accused US authorities of giving up their efforts to support the training of Afghan women and voiced concerns about visa policy Of the White House to the Muslim majority countries.

The decision to issue visas to the Afghanistan team follows a similar investment for a Gambia team, initially barred from entering the United States. The United States raised restrictions on the Gambia team last week.

First Global, the organization hosting the international competition, welcomed the news that Afghanistan and Gambia teams are allowed to participate.

The competition in Washington, DC, will include teams from more than 160 countries, including students Syria, Iran and Sudan – countries that, unlike Afghanistan, are covered by the controversial travel ban Trump.

“I really think our greatest power is the power to call on nations to unite people in pursuit of a common goal and to demonstrate that our similarities are far superior to our differences,” said first-term president Joe Sestak.

“This is why I am very grateful to the US government and its State Department to ensure that Afghanistan and The Gambia can join us in this year’s international competition.”

It is still unclear why the Afghan and Gambian teams had initially rejected the visa application. The State Department tells the AP that “all visa applications are considered in a case under US law.”

Without a visa, the Afghan team must participate remotely in the contest via Skype. His presentation, a robot ordering balls, took six months to build in western Afghanistan.

“We want to make a difference and further progress in the areas of science, technology and other industries usually start with a child’s dream to do something extraordinary,” the team wrote its competition page. “We want to be that child and pursue our dreams to make a difference in people’s lives.”

Moto Z2 Play in Lunar Gray colour with 5.5-inch display, 64GB storage, 4GB RAM spotted on TENNA

We already know that Motorola is working on Moto Z2, Z2 and Z2 Force Play. Although the company has not confirmed the manufacture of mobile phones, it takes countless rumors throughout the webosphere. Adding to the rumor, a new leak in Game Z2 reveals new information on the Z2 Moto Game, shows a single camera configuration in the rear, unlike the Z2 Moto Force.

If rumors are to be believed, Moto Game Z2 and Z2 Force should be fairly similar in terms of design and specifications. However, on that note, Moto Z2 may vary slightly. Before the official launch, the Z2 phones have been subject to several leaks. In the middle of all this, Moto Game Z2 was discovered in TENNA. This indicates something like the release date is almost approaching. However, the company does not confirm the same.

The TENNA list reveals a lot about the upcoming Moto Z2 Play. This shows that the Motorola phone will come packed with a single sensor from the rear camera, which will be a dual LED flash module. The list is accompanied by images of Z2 Play, which shows a single play camera. It should be remembered that the filtered images of the Moto Z2 Force show the arrival of two rear cameras. That said, on the front of the optics, the Z phone series may differ.

The images that appear in TENNA show the back and front of Z2 in Play. Also, give flashes of the left and right edges of the device as well. This shows that the phone’s power and volume buttons will be placed on the straight edges, while the left side will not have bouton8. It is also shown that the device will come with TD-LTE support. As for specifications, TENNA’s list shows that Moto Game Z2 comes with 64GB of internal storage that can be extended through a microSD card. The device should also have 4GB of RAM, which run on a CPU that displays a 2.2GHz frequency, but did not give details about the processor that will power the next phone.

The list also shows that the smartphone will run on Android 7.1.1 latest nougat, while on the front of the camera, the camera will come full of a 12 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front camera sensors face. On the screen, devices are listed with a 5.5-inch Full HD screen with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080. In addition, the next Moto Game Z2 is also indicated with a 2820mAh battery configuration.

Omega-3 rich foods such as fish and spinach may help prevent Alzheimer’s: Study

Consuming foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids such as fish and spinach can increase blood flow in areas of the brain associated with memory and learning, which reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new study.

In Alzheimer’s disease, a protein called amyloid forms around the nerve cells in the brain. This amyloid damages the blood vessels and can inhibit the flow of blood in the brain. “This is a very important research because it shows a correlation between omega-3 fatty acid levels and lower the reduction of cerebral blood flow to regions important for learning, memory, depression and dementia,” said the researcher Principal, Daniel G Amen Amen of Clinics in the United States.

The researchers analyzed the brain images of about 166 participants. They used single photon emission computed tomography, or SPECT, to measure blood perfusion in the brain. Images obtained from subjects performing various cognitive tasks show increased blood flow in specific regions of the brain, the researchers said.

The quantitative brain SPECT was performed in 128 regions of the brain and each participant completed computerized neurocognitive test their status.
They compared the images to the Omega-3 index, a measure of blood levels of two omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), the researchers found a statistically significant correlation between increased blood circulation and The Omega-3 Index. The team also evaluated the neuropsychological functions of subjects and found that omega-3 fatty acid levels also correlated with various psychological feelings using a battery of standardized tests.

The results showed a statistically significant relationship between the omega-3 index, regional cerebral perfusion in SPECT in the areas involved in memory and neurocognitive tests.

Researchers say saliva may reveal risk of Alzheimer’s disease
“The role of fatty acids” fish oil “in mental health and the physiology of the brain principle to be explored.This study opens the possibility that relatively simple dietary changes have a positive impact on cognitive function,” he said William S Harris from the University of South Dakota in the United States.

Pervez Musharraf says Kulbhushan Jadhav bigger terrorist than Ajmal Kasab, slams Pakistan for appearing at ICJ

Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf said on Friday that Kulbhushan Jadhav was more of terrorist Ajmal Kasab, one of the perpetrators of the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in 2008.
Jadhav, a former Indian Navy officer, was sentenced to death by a Pakistani military court in April of this year for espionage purposes. Pakistan claims that Jadhav was an Investigation and Analysis (RAW) agent and is responsible for fomenting agitation in Balochistan, the Pakistani region of Islamabad, where he has long criticized RAW for promoting terrorism.
In an interview with ARY News Pakistan, Musharraf drew parallels between Jadhav and Kasab, who was hanged to death in India for his role in the Mumbai attacks. Musharraf said that Kasab was only a “pawan”, while Jadhav is responsible for obtaining “dozens of people” to carry out terrorist activities.
“Who is the greatest culprit (between Jadhav and Kasab),” Musharraf was asked before saying, “Obviously it is Jadhav.” “I do not even know how Jadhav’s death is responsible,” said M. Musharraf.
The former chief of the Pakistani army also gave a country to appear before the International Court of Justice, which allowed to suspend this week the death penalty Jadhav. “It was not true that India has gone to the ICJ,” Musharraf said, adding, “Pakistan should not be a party (ICJ).”
The issues of espionage and sabotage are internal affairs of Pakistan, Musharraf added, saying that no one has the power to advise the country on these issues.
He also said that global organizations such as the United Nations and the International Court of Justice have no real power. The guidelines issued by these global organizations are ignored by some countries, M. Musharraf, after they were asked if Pakistan could obviously avoid sending a team to the ICJ to defend itself against India’s claim.
Musharraf then cited the example of the United States execution of two German citizens in 1999 despite a provisional decision by the ICJ setting a stay of the death sentence to two.
In April of this year, Pakistani army chief Javed Qamar Bajwa confirmed the death sentence on Kulbhushan Jadhav, accused of espionage.
India, which closed Jadhav’s trial as “a farce,” said Jadhav is not a spy and he is a former officer of the Indian Navy – he has become a businessman who has been kidnapped in Iran and taken to Pakistan.
Noting that Islamabad had violated the Vienna Convention by not providing consular access to Jadhav New Delhi, India submitted a petition to the International Court of Justice in The Hague, The Netherlands.
This week, the World Court, which estimated India’s motive has asked Pakistan not to execute Jadhav until the ICJ had time to fully understand the problem and reach a final verdict.

New Delhi: The Mumbai Indians secured their place in the Indian Premier League 2017 final, defeating Kolkata Knight Riders convincingly Friday. Regarding the team’s performance, Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Yuvraj Singh said KKR should hold the head high after its loss for a clinical side of the MI.
The double between two of the most consistent teams in the competition saw the side of Gautam Gambhir collapse and Rohit Sharma set up a final clash with Rising Pune Supergiant.

Yuvraj, who moved away from the competition with Hyderabad after suffering a defeat at Gambhir’s Kolkata in the Eliminator round, said: “One of the best sides of the @ipl @kkr can stand high @ clinical performance, Hopefully, a last comin soon. ”

Mumbai lost three first wickets in their pursuit before skipper Rohit Sharma (26) and Krunal Pandya (45 not released) put 54 races to bring the team to the fourth final of the IPL.

But it was Sharma’s wrist epilators who set up the victory for Mumbai, who had lost the first qualifying match for Pune after completing the league phase as a table-toppers.

Suryakumar Yadav (31) and Ishank Jaggi (28) placed 56 runs for the sixth wicket, but an inspired attack from Mumbai did not allow the advantage to escape the Bangalore M Chinnaswamy stadium.

Jasprit Bumrah (3-7) and Mitchell Johnson (2-28) shared five wins between them while the duo combined to clear Kolkata’s tail.
