Specific Naga names to be mentioned in ST list

Posted on by

first_imgThe Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved the Home Ministry’s proposal to replace the generic term ‘any Naga tribes’ with the specific names of the tribes that will qualify for recognition as Scheduled Tribes (ST) in Arunachal Pradesh. “The proposal to replace ‘any Naga Tribes’ with the specific names of Tutsa, Wancho, Nocte and Tangsawas was cleared by the Tribal Affairs Ministry first,” said a senior official.Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad said the Constitution (Scheduled Tribes) Order (Amendment) Bill, 2018, for revision of the list of the Scheduled Tribes of Arunachal Pradesh, was cleared, and the names of some communities would be deleted. An official statement said ‘Khampti’ would be replaced with ‘Tai Khamti’ in the list. ‘Abor’ would be deleted and ‘Mishmi-Kaman, Idu and Taraon’ would be included. ‘Monpa, Memba, Sartang, Sajolong’ would be included in lieu of ‘Momba’ in the list of the Scheduled Tribes of Arunachal Pradesh. The winter session of Parliament, technically the last for the NDA government, comes to an end on January 8. The Home Ministry will have to move the Bill in Parliament before the winter session concludes on January 8 for the changes to come into effect.last_img read more

Sachin Tendulkar not yet satisfied with career

Posted on by

first_imgSachin Tendulkar has almost every batting record there is to be made, but the iconic Indian cricketer says he is still not satisfied with his career as he considers satisfaction the beginning of stagnation. “When you win something or score a century you say you are happy, but not satisfied. Satisfaction is like engaging the handbrake and hoping a car moves forward,” Tendulkar said in the latest issue of Sky Sports Magazine.”I am not satisfied yet with my career and what I have done, not at all. I feel the moment you start to feel satisfied, then it is only natural that you begin to cool down and lose it,” he explained. Tendulkar reiterated that he is not even thinking of retirement despite completing more than two decades in international cricket.”I still love cricket as much as ever. It is my job, but it is also my passion. Cricket remains in my heart, I don’t need anything else to motivate me. I dreamt of playing for my country when I was young and it is still my dream, it is still fun for me,” the 38-year-old right-hander said. “Life without cricket is unthinkable,” he added. Tendulkar attributed his longevity and recent success to a stricter fitness regime, not playing Twenty20 Internationals and bowling only sparingly.”I am still learning about the game. I figure something out about my batting all the time, you have to keep your mind open. I learn all the time, those small adjustments, with your footwork or bat swing can improve your game, I love doing that. You never know everything. Mentally that makes you feel so good. That is the best form of preparation,” Tendulkar said.advertisementRecalling India’s recent World Cup triumph after a gap of 28 years, Tendulkar said when the defining moment of his career finally arrived, he wasn’t in the middle of the field wielding his bat, nor was he even on the balcony watching his teammates. Instead, he was on his own in the dressing room, his hands clasped together, his eyes closed as he prayed in silence.He only knew India had won the World Cup when he heard that cathartic roar reverberate around the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai as his captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni hit the winning runs against Sri Lanka. Tendulkar described the experience as a different kind of feeling, “A high like living on a different planet, it felt as though I was flying.”For all his personal records – and he boasts the most Test runs and Test centuries, and the most One-Day runs and One-Day centuries – Tendulkar wanted something tangible, a trophy to lift, a medal to wear, and to win something as part of an Indian team. Tendulkar had played in the previous five World Cups, but had fallen short each time. The experience left him feeling shattered beyond words. His fellow players too lauded the way Tendulkar has sustained himself at the top level. “It has been fascinating watching the changes in his approach,” said teammate Rahul Dravid.”From being a master blaster, he is now a mistakeproof batsman. While he can’t control his body ageing, Tendulkar has increasingly sought to exert more control over his mind. You have to be still in your mind, and keep it blank. It is also important to avoid any needless anger,” he said. “Growing up, I picked up a lot from my father, who never lost his temper, and I tried to follow that, so I don’t lose my cool.”last_img read more

Shah Rukh Khan gets clean chit by Mumbai police in Wankhede brawl case

Posted on by

first_imgBollywood superstar and co-owner of the IPL franchise, Kolkata Knight Riders, Shah Rukh Khan has been given a clean chit by the Mumbai police in connection with a brawl at the Wankhede Stadium after an IPL match in 2012.Police have informed a metropolitan magistrate’s court that no ‘cognisable offence’ was made out against Shah Rukh Khan.”After the investigation, it was found that no cognisable offence had taken place,” said a police report filed in the court recently.A local activist had filed a private complaint in the court with regard to the incident, seeking action against Khan for abusing security personnel of the stadium.Police said in the report that they recorded the actor’s statement, and he denied the allegations.Khan told the police that after his team Kolkata Knight Riders won the match that day, his children and their friends entered the ground and the security guard Vikas Dalvi asked them to leave.According to Khan, he only told Dalvi that the children were with him, and nobody should touch them. His business manager then took the children out of the stadium.The actor told police that he got angry when someone spoke to him in indecent language.The complainant, Amit Maru, had earlier filed a petition against him in the High Court in 2008, but the court’s verdict went in Khan’s favour, the actor said in the statement to the police, alleging that Maru may have filed the present complaint only for publicity.Following the incident, the Mumbai Cricket Association had imposed a five-year ban on Shah Rukh which was lifted last year.advertisement(With PTI inputs)last_img read more

Excited to test New Zealand’s bench strength in T20 series against India: Williamson

Posted on by

first_imgThe deflating ODI loss behind him, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson Tuesday said he is excited about the prospect of testing unheralded players against a “top” team like India in the T20 series, starting Wednesday.New Zealand have drafted in two debutants — all-rounder Daryl Mitchell and right-arm pacer Blair Tickner — in the T20 squad besides all-rounder Scott Kuggeleijen, who has played just one T20 and wicketkeeper Tim Seifert (8 T20s). The Kiwis lost the five-match ODI series 1-4.Williamson said with Martin Guptill ruled out due to a back injury, some rookie players will be in action in the three-match T20 series against India.”Martin (Guptill) has been ruled out of the series because of a back injury. We have a different squad altogether with some new faces. We are going to see some debutants throughout the series and it is really exciting,” the Kiwi skipper said on the eve of the opening T20.”It’s a positive thing that a number of guys are getting opportunities to have those experiences against a fantastic Indian side.”Will Kane Williamson open for New Zealand?With Guptill not in the scheme of things, Williamson didn’t rule out the possibility of opening the innings in the T20 matches.”At this stage we are going to look at the surface, we are not decided just yet. We are looking to pin down the balance. There are a number of all-rounders which will affect the positions I suppose,” he said when asked about New Zealand’s possible opening combination.advertisement”There are a number of guys who could potentially fill that role. Obviously (Colin) Munro is expected in the top-three. Power players could potentially move up the order or it could be me,” he added.Tim Southee’s workload in focus ahead of World CupWilliamson emphasised on the need to balance experienced pacer Tim Southee’s workload going into the World Cup which will start May 30 in the UK.”Tim (Southee) has played a huge amount of cricket. He is a massive part of our side. He is a leader in the group,” he said.Williamson said any form of international cricket against a quality side is good for the preparation of the team.”Obviously it is the shorter version of what we can expect in the World Cup but it is another great opportunity to play international cricket against what is a very strong opposition. Any time you get opportunities to have those experiences it’s always good,” Williamson said.”It’s (World Cup) not that far away now. Any opportunity you get to play in international cricket is beneficial. It’s (T20s) still an important fixture especially against a competitive side like India. So, I think all the people involved in the series will get a lot out of it.”Williamson admitted that it is always tough to adapt from one format to the other in quick time.”It is always a challenge to adapt from Test to ODI to T20. It does require adjustments in mindset. Whether it’s bowling or batting you need to try and adapt quickly,” he said.”We would look to try and get things right in terms of executing our plans, we want to step up a little bit. Obviously, it’s a different format but it’s exciting that we have new group.”Also Read | India vs New Zealand: Rishabh Pant a great asset for India, says Shikhar DhawanAlso Read | Hardik Pandya reunites with brother Krunal in New Zealand for T20I seriesAlso See:last_img read more

La Liga: Barcelona slip to opening day defeat for 1st time in 11 years

Posted on by

first_img Next La Liga: Barcelona slip to opening day defeat for 1st time in 11 yearsBarcelona, who were without injured captain Lionel Messi, were stunned by Athletic Bilbao 1-0 in the La Liga opener on Friday. advertisement Reuters BilbaoAugust 17, 2019UPDATED: August 17, 2019 08:46 IST Aritz Aduriz stunner gave Athletic Bilbao 1-0 win over Barcelona (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSAritz Aduriz stunner gives Athletic Bilbao 1-0 win over BarcelonaAntoine Griezmann’s much-anticipated Barcelona league debut ended in defeatIf you’re not at your very best then a team like Athletic walks all over you: PiqueLa Liga champions Barcelona fell to their first opening day defeat of the season in 11 years when they were beaten 1-0 at Athletic Bilbao thanks to a sensational late overhead kick from veteran striker Aritz Aduriz.The 38-year-old came off the bench late in the game and soon made Barca pay for squandering several chances by acrobatically lashing an unstoppable shot into the net in the 89th minute.The Catalans were without injured captain Lionel Messi but lined up with 200 million euros of new talent in France forward Antoine Griezmann and Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong.However, they lacked sparkle against an energetic Bilbao side who had the better run of play for the first half even though Barca came closest to scoring before the interval.Luis Suarez struck the near post in the first half when presented with a terrible back pass from Athletic’s Unai Lopez and was soon forced off with a calf injury, while substitute Rafinha rattled the crossbar after coming on.Barca improved after the break as coach Ernesto Valverde replaced young midfielder Carles Alena with the more experienced Ivan Rakitic and spent most of the second period in the home side’s area.Rakitic and Rafinha each came close to scoring for the visitors but they were outdone by one of Spanish football’s best loved players in Aduriz, who has announced that he will retire at the end of the season.”Sometimes football is so beautiful and when you least expect it a ball like that comes to your feet and goes into the net,” Aduriz told reporters.advertisement”Barcelona are the best team around and it’s very difficult to last a whole game taking them on and matching them for space but we knew exactly how to manage our energy.”It was the first time Barca have lost their opening game of the season since 2008, when they were beaten 1-0 by Numancia in Pep Guardiola’s debut game in charge, although they swiftly recovered from that setback and went on to win the treble.”This is a very difficult ground to come to and we were made to see how tough the competition is,” said Barca defender Gerard Pique.”We did not play like we usually do and they put us under a lot of pressure and if you’re not at your very best then a team like Athletic walks all over you.”Also Read | Eden Hazard’s Real debut postponed due to leg injuryAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Cornwall Regional Hospital Introduces Kidney Transplant Programme

Posted on by

first_img In striving to put the Cornwall Regional Hospital on the cutting edge of 21st Century medicine, the latest initiative is the introduction of a Kidney Transplant project, which got off the ground on October 8. Through collaboration with a medical team from the United Kingdom, Transplant Links Community (TLC) , three kidney transplants were performed at the CRH over three days (October 8 to 10). Story Highlights Administrators and medical personnel at the leading health institution in Western Jamaica, the Cornwall Regional Hospital (CRH), are always striving to put the institution on the cutting edge of 21st Century medicine, in the provision of health care.The latest initiative is the introduction of a Kidney Transplant project, which got off the ground on October 8.Through collaboration with a medical team from the United Kingdom, named Transplant Links Community (TLC) , three kidney transplants were performed at the CRH over  three days (October 8 to 10), with surgeons from both the CRH and TLC participating.The TLC is a UK registered charity, whose primary objective is improving medical skills in developing countries, and saving lives through kidney transplants.Kidney replacement is both cost effective and designed to improve and increase a patient’s life expectancy, when compared to being regularly dialyzed. At present, the CRH has approximately 160 patients on dialysis.Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, in addressing a press briefing held at the CRH on October 11, cited the success of the initiative.He noted that his immediate approval for the collaboration is in keeping with one of the Government’s strategic priorities, with a focus on human capital development.“I want to congratulate the CRH team, the nurses, the doctors and the administrators, who had the vision and the tenacity to ensure that this programme became a reality,” the Minister said.He pointed out that the decision to start the programme at the CRH is good for Jamaica. “It is a decision that in years to come, we will all be very happy to see the programme grow and to see a sustainable transplant programme as is taking place in Trinidad,” Dr. Ferguson said.The Minister thanked members of both teams for their service to the people, particularly those who will benefit from the operations.He highlighted that the collaboration between the TLC group and the team from the CRH will lead to the transfer of skills, which should result in the sustainability of the programme at the CRH.  He expressed confidence that the programme will improve significantly, the quality of life for persons who benefit from the project.Senior Medical Officer (SMO) at the CRH, Dr. Delroy Fray, tells JIS News that the surgeries had impacted the whole CRH community.“I believe this is the epitome of what altruism is all about.  You see a sister donating a kidney to a sister; a brother to a sister and the most touching part of it, a wife donating a kidney to a husband,” he says.Dr. Fray, who is a surgeon, describes as overwhelming, the level of collaboration between all the CRH staff involved and the TLC personnel.“I have never seen this before, the emotions that were involved, and I am sure in the final analysis, the people who received the kidneys are going to be very satisfied,” the SMO tells JIS News.He says implementation of the programme is a great milestone for the CRH, and expresses the hope that it will continue and flourish over the years to come.Dr. Fray says the only hurdle to overcome is funding for medication for patients after the operations, and that assistance is being sought from the National Health Fund (NHF). He emphasizes that in the long term, it is less costly to do the transplants than for patients to continue on dialysis.The surgeon points out that on the departure of the TLC team back to the UK, the medical personnel to continue the operations will be available at the CRH.Meanwhile, representative of the TLC group, Dr. Jenny Harrison, says members of the team now refer to the CRH as the world’s newest kidney transplant centre.She tells JIS News that in their travels to establish kidney transplant projects, they have never seen one with such broad support, from the Ministerial level to the staff of the hospital.Dr. Harrison expresses great appreciation to the staff at the hospital, while giving her group’s commitment to continue supporting the programme.The team’s stay in Jamaica was sponsored by the Sandals Group. Kidney replacement is both cost effective and designed to improve and increase a patient’s life expectancy, when compared to being regularly dialyzed.last_img read more

Haiti UN official concerned over slow funding response to cholera appeal

Posted on by

“While we are very grateful for the contributions received so far, both cash and in-kind, so far we only have received less than 10 per cent of what we need,” Nigel Fisher, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Haiti, said yesterday.“Critical supplies and skills are urgently needed. We need doctors, nurses, water purification systems, chlorine tablets, soap, oral rehydration salts, tents for cholera treatment centres and a range of other supplies,” he said.The spread of the disease was accelerated by flooding caused by Hurricane Tomas that hit Haiti on 5 November. Ongoing efforts by the Government and humanitarian agencies to combat the spread of cholera have been impeded by recent riots in the city of Cap Haitien, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).As of yesterday, a total of 50,000 people had sought medical attention and 19,646 of them have been confirmed to be suffering from cholera. The death toll stands at about 1,100.“Cholera is an extremely simple disease to cure, and the case mortality rate of 2.4 per cent in medical facilities shows that almost all patients receiving help are surviving,” said Mr Fisher. “Without medical help, the mortality rate will increase dramatically. Oral rehydration salts or home-made sugar-salt solutions are enough to treat 80 per cent of the cases. If we can provide timely treatment to patients we can save lives,” he added.The Cholera Response Plan for which the $164 million is sought focuses on the need to improve water and sanitation and on public information to help prevent the spread of the disease, as well as scaling up medical capacity by building specialized cholera treatment centres (CTCs), smaller treatment units and oral rehydration centres. The plan includes activities to be undertaken by nearly 50 non-governmental organizations.So far 36 CTCs have already been set up nationwide along with 61 smaller treatment units. There are plans to set up CTUs in every hospital in Haiti.On Friday, humanitarian agencies distributed 40 tonnes of medical supplies. The response strategy also provides for 650 oral rehydration centres where lifesaving rehydration salts can be administered.Distribution of water purification tablets, oral rehydration salts and soap is ongoing across the country, as is a large scale public information campaign.“We also need to recognize that this appeal relates to emergency response needs now. In the longer term, effective management of cholera and other communicable diseases that Haitians suffer from every day must mean proper investment in Haitian capabilities, in protected water supplies and environmental sanitation systems across the country, and in proper waste disposal methods. The reality we must all face is that cholera is here to stay in Haiti. We must minimize unsanitary conditions that foster epidemics,” he added. 21 November 2010The top United Nations humanitarian official in Haiti has voiced concern over the slow response to an appeal sent out nine days ago seeking $164 million to curb the spread of the cholera outbreak that has infected nearly 20,000 people and killed hundreds over the past month. read more

BCs wildfire season to have longterm implications for logging

Posted on by

WILLIAMS LAKE, B.C. — Recovering from a historic wildfire season is expected to take British Columbia’s forest industry at least five years, the province’s Forest Ministry said on Wednesday.The ministry said in a statement that although wildfires will likely remain active into the fall, plans to help the industry rebound are already underway.“To better support this process in the light of this year’s unprecedented fire season, a new recovery unit has been established to oversee and co-ordinate government’s cross-ministry response,” said the statement sent to The Canadian Press.Forests Minister Doug Donaldson said at a news conference Tuesday that the logging industry alone will experience lingering implications from the fires.Donaldson said an estimated 53 million cubic metres of timber has burned, which calls for support of harvesters already licensed to collect trees within the fire zone. New licences will also need to be issued to salvage usable wood in burned areas that weren’t previously due to be harvested, the minister said.Those efforts are well underway, along with long-term plans focused on the sustainability of the industry, Donaldson said.“We know there is going to be an extremely high need for reforestation and that’s been planned right now through my ministry in order to ensure that we do have the timber supply in the future,” he said. “But there is no question that there’s going to be an impact from that much timber being burned in the province.”The BC Wildfire Service said on Wednesday that the fires have charred more than 11,500 square kilometres of land this season.The ministry said the full extent of the damage won’t be known until the season is over.But once those areas are thoroughly surveyed, the ministry said it may adjust the annual allowable cuts and determine how much of the scorched timber should be salvaged or left for wildlife habitat.Susan Yurkovich, president of the BC Council of Forest Industries, said although mill infrastructure hasn’t been destroyed by fires, the shortage of timber and wood fibre, especially in the Interior, means companies can’t operate.“We’re not able to get into the forest obviously to do logging because of the fire activity so that’s going to have an impact on mills being able to run,” she said in an interview Wednesday.Many companies have been involved in fire suppression efforts and working with first responders to keep employees and their families safe.As fires are extinguished, Yurkovich said salvaging timber and looking at other areas to harvest wood are priorities to allow mills and the communities around them to get back to work.“When they’ve been through this kind of incident, they need to get back to normal, they need to get into their homes and they need to get back to work,” she said.David Elstone, executive director of the Truck Loggers Association, said even on the coast where fires have been less severe than in the Interior, contractors have seen a decline in work this season.“We can’t estimate how much of the workforce right now is not actually out there on the land working because of the dryness and the hazards but there are certainly contracting communities that aren’t out there in full force.”The BC Wildfire Service said 158 fires are still burning in the province, bringing the total number since April 1 to 1,212 blazes.Yurkovich said the industry is working closely with the provincial government on recovery efforts, and discussions about changing forest-management practices are expected to continue beyond the current fire season.— By Linda Givetash in Vancouver; with files from Laura Kane. read more

Half of Burundians displaced in 2002 have returned home UN says

Posted on by

Some 140,000 IDPs remain out of the 281,000 who fled their homes in 2002, OCHA said after conducting a new survey in March and April of those in the IDP camps with help from the Burundian Ministry for the Rehabilitation and Reintegration of Displaced and Repatriated Persons, as well as the National Commission for the Rehabilitation of Disaster-affected People.The rate of return of the IDPs had speeded up near the end of 2003 and some 58 per cent of the 28,679 displaced families surveyed expressed their willingness to return home in the near future, OCHA said.”The reasons they gave for wanting to return were the poor living conditions in the camps, the government’s prodding for them to go home, the IDPs’ desire to reclaim their properties before the arrival of Burundian refugees from Tanzania and because of the improved security situation in their home areas,” OCHA said.Some 44 per cent of the people still living in IDP camps were in the provinces of Gitega, Kayanza, Kirundo, Muyinga, Muramvya, Ngozi and Karuzi, OCHA said.People displaced temporarily because of fighting and IDPs living with host families were not surveyed, it added. read more

Wrestling Kyle Snyder named Big Ten Jesse Owens Male Athlete of the

Posted on by

OSU junior Kyle Snyder shows off his gold medal at the Welcome Back event for OSU Olympians. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorOne of the most decorated athletes in Ohio State history, senior heavyweight wrestler Kyle Snyder, is adding another accolade to his list Wednesday as he was named Big Ten Jesse Owens Male Athlete of the Year.This is the second time in three years that an Ohio State wrestler has been given the honor, after Logan Stieber won the award in 2015.“I’m honored to win this incredible award, especially because of what Jesse Owens means to the Big Ten and specifically Ohio State,” Snyder said in a press release. “To be in the company of the many exceptional student-athletes who have earned this award in the past is humbling.” Snyder won a gold medal at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, making him the youngest Olympic and world champion in United States history at 20 years old.During the past year, Snyder also won both Big Ten and NCAA titles in 2017, marking the second straight year he finished on top of those respective tournaments. Snyder was a perfect 17-0 over the course of the 2016-17 season. He helped lead Ohio State to a second-place finish at the NCAA championships and to the second Big Ten title in the past three years.Snyder also spent much of the past season traveling, competing in the Ivan Yarygin Grand Prix in Russia at the end of January — where he won a gold medal — and then traveled with the U.S. team to Iran in February, where it came home with the silver medal. From Aug. 21-26, Snyder will travel with the U.S. Senior World Team to Paris to participate in the Paris 2017 World Wrestling Championships. During his last trip to the tournament in 2015, he came away with a gold medal, making him the youngest American to win the highest honor at only 19 years old. “I could not have achieved any of my success without the constant help and encouragement of my family, coaches, teammates and friends,” Snyder said. “I love competing for Ohio State and representing my country.” read more

Hypertension le manque de sommeil pointé du doigt

Posted on by

first_imgHypertension : le manque de sommeil pointé du doigt Le Comité français de lutte contre l’hypertension artérielle (CFLHTA) souhaite alerter les Français. Les troubles du sommeil sont plus fréquents chez les hypertendus que dans le reste de la population.Le CFLHTA vient de publier les résultats d’une étude réalisée sur 3.718 adultes de plus de 35 ans et vivant en métropole. Elle révèle que les troubles du sommeil sont plus fréquents chez les hypertendus que dans le reste de la population : ronflements, apnée du sommeil, somnolence diurne… D’autre part, quatre hypertendus sur dix déclarent dormir moins de huit heures par nuit. Or, c’est durant le sommeil que la tension artérielle baisse naturellement chez tous les individus. Si le temps de sommeil est suffisant, la tension artérielle se régule donc mieux.À lire aussiLe jaune d’œuf nuirait presque autant que le tabac à nos artèresLe CFLHTA compte lancer une campagne d’information le 14 décembre, à l’occasion de la journée nationale de lutte contre l’hypertension, pour alerter la population sur les risques du manque de sommeil. Le thème sera : “Hypertendus, dormez-vous bien ?”.Plus d’infos sur Comitehta.orgLe 4 décembre 2010 à 11:37 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Im Putting Panasonics Shoe Deodorizer On My Wish List

Posted on by

first_img Finally, a multinational electronics company that really gets me.Panasonic this month introduced a shoe deodorizer—the creatively named MS-DS100—with “nanoe X” technology that promises to remove “unpleasant shoe odors.”As described by the Japanese firm, nano-sized ions containing hydroxyl (OH) radicals penetrate and dissolve odor-causing substances, leaving the interior fabric unscented.AdChoices广告Originally designed to improve air quality, Panasonic’s next-gen nanoe tech features “10 times more” of the highly reactive OH component; the machine’s six outlets spread particles to every corner of the shoe for “long-lasting deodorizing effect.”As someone whose naturally sweaty hooves regularly leave footwear reeking (sorry boys, I’m off the market!), this product actually excites me.Panasonic’s MS-DS100 shoe deodorizer works from heel to toe (via Panasonic)Unfortunately, it is launching next month exclusively in Japan; there is no word on a worldwide rollout. But, for the sake of anyone in my vicinity at the end of a hot summer’s day, keep your fingers crossed for international sales. And soon.According to Panasonic, one of the leading causes of unpleasant shoe odors is isovaleric acid, a noxious substance produced by foot sweat and bacteria. And while a majority of people (based on a company survey) take measures to remove shoe stink, many are not satisfied with the current methods.MS-DS100 could change that, though: Simply stick the device into a pair of your most fetid sneakers and choose between two operation modes—normal (five hours of application) or long (seven hours).Both cost less than 1 yen (mere pennies) per use, Panasonic said. Plus, it works with a mobile battery, so you can deodorize on the go. (Handy for the office or in a taxi on your way to a fancy-schmancy aromatic event.)There is even a storage case for stylish space-saving.“With the MS-DS100 shoe deodorizer, Panasonic proposes an easy way to remove shoe odors and expects to create new market demand,” a company news release said.Sneaker tech is a fascinating section of the shoe industry, with shoes being printed in 4D and smart shoes replacing wearables altogether.

Only Barcelona have been able to do that – and that was a team that has been nurtured for years and years.”“When it is your second year, you don’t have that. You have to be pragmatical at times and Jose is that. You have to be business like and that is what Manchester United have,” Hasselbaink went on to add.last_img read more
