Cow Receives Exam Card in J&K, Sparks Political Row

A cow has been issued an admit card for a professional examination in Jammu & Kashmir. Clearly the result of a prank, this has sparked off another round of political finger-pointing, with the National Conference seeking an “explanation” from the ruling Peoples Democratic Party.

On Saturday it was revealed that the state Board of Professional Entrance Examination (BOPEE) had issued an admit card in the name of Kachir Gaaw (brown cow), supposedly the daughter of Gura Dand (red bull).

The cow was even allotted a seat at Government Degree College Bemina for writing the entrance examination to diploma in polytechnic scheduled on May 10.

NC spokesman Junaid Azim Mattu was the first to upload the picture of the admit card with the cow’s photo on Twitter.

“The board issued this roll number slip to a cow after due verification,” he tweeted. “(J&K Education Minister) Mr Naeem Akhtar has some explaining to do.”

According to BOPEE’s controller of examination, Farooq Ahmad Mir, the board cannot do much to prevent such pranks.

“The entire process — from filling up an application form to generation of admit cards — is computer generated. There is an image recognition software, which does not differentiate between a human’s face and an animal’s picture. Someone has played a prank,” Mir said. “We will act against the prankster after tracking down his IP address.”

But that hasn’t stopped the opposition from attacking the administration.

Former chief minister and NC working president Omar Abdullah said, “Brilliant. I wish Kachir Gaaw had turned up for the examination.”

In response, the state education minister said, “This is called computer illiteracy. They should know what is meant by ‘computer generated’. When they couldn’t find any issue of substance, they started raising these trivial issues”.

I also can relate to your tienmile, so sorry to hear what your son has to go through. I have Crohn's and the doctors of course recommended the same drugs to me (I just couldn't bring myself to take any injection therapy though after reading the potential side effects off of the drug's website). Anyways, I have recently been to a naturopath doctor because I could tell there was something missing with SCD and my treatment- SCD was definitely helping, but not enough; My naturopath recommended a food outline by Dr. Melvin Page. It is eerily similar to SCD, only a little more restrictive. His main thing is food combinations. For instance the body creates certain digestive chemicals to digest starches, something different to digest meats, but an acidic setting to digest fruits, so when you eat the those in various combinations (i.e. meat and potatoes, ham and beans, fruit and meats, etc.) your body's chemicals cancel themselves out and food ends up not being digested. So I no longer eat fruits in combination with any other food, and I don't eat like meats with beans, etc. It has really been helping me. I also take a few whole food supplements that I have listed on my blog. I am sure that your young son is exhausted of changing his eating habits, but I though these suggestions may help him, as I have experienced the benefits of them. I hope he continues to grow healthy!

My daughter with Crohn's has done relaly well past 1.5 years, off all the meds for 1.5 years, treated for parasites off and on, which seems to be her culprit. I think too much bad food weakens her immune system and sets her up for flares which always respond to the right parasite drug, like clockwork and she is back to normal functioning again . She goes up and down with that is freshman in highschool, so temptations all around Her tummy hurts today and I suspect parasites again. She is home from school, reminisent of prior terrible 2 year period where missing school was common place. Fortunately she has already scheduled follow up appointment with our alternative MD today. Her flares have become less severe and frequent and she has been able to function normally for most part hoping for more permanent healing in time like Jordan Rubin, an author with long term success with Crohn's Patient Heal Thyself.Your timeline was hard to read too close to home, but I pray and hope for the best for your son and your family. One day at at a time is good policy Crohn's is a challenging illness and few can treat it well..Jini Patel Thompson has a great series of books you may like. She treated herself successfully for Crohns and has been off all meds for some time uses herbs to treat parasites, candida etc, probiotics dietary changes Listen to Your Gut. Anyway, those authors may give you some additional ideas if you are interested Good luck and thanks for recipes as usual..Michelle [url=]scwpnve[/url] [link=]sdgqukc[/link]

Cecelia Ann Blodgette 9:03pm May 23oh my gosh, that poor little guy. Prayers continue for his recovery and strength to fight all these complications and side effects. Stay strong you guys! love to you all Myrna Liddell 9:43pm May 23Each day our hearts go out to you, and hope for healing soon and pure. Please know our prayers are with you.HLH Survivors FB Group CommentsCarol Bunker 3:35pm May 23Has anyone else going thru BMT, had an infection like this?Angela Dray' Gideon 4:26pm May 23Sorry We are getting ready to start BMT so I'm no help. But I will pray! Kelly Claudine Marsh 4:40pm May 23Unfortunately line infections are common in the BMT world. Hoping the graft will come in quickly to help combat it! Karen Beavers 3:46am May 24Day +11 these days are starting to add up now, you have come so far! Im sure it will be such a big relief when Liam has had his last dose of Methotrexate and a big step nearer to a healthy life! I hope his fever stops soon. Deakon had a line infection (not sure if it was Streptococcus) but this was after his transplant before his new bone marrow had grafted and he was put on IV antibiotics and responded well. I hope Liam feels better soon and hopefully you will see some encouraging blood counts in the next few days!!! Kristy you are staying so strong for your gorgeous little boy! If he was not getting enough food etc you would be the first to ask for TPN, you are his mummy and you know him best so keep strong and do what you know is best for him. I think its amazing that Liam is doing so well and is still taking the bottle, hes so clever. Im sure its part of his routine and probably a comfort to him also. I would do the same in your position but it is a decision only you can make. Deakon stopped having his bottle and forgot' how to suck, it was so hard to get him onto baby food and back onto a bottle and cup. If Liam does end up on TPN you will cope though. Sending you all lots of love, thinking of you and Liam as alayws, you are slowly getting there now day by day xxxx Angela Dray' Gideon 8:05am May 24Same thing happened to Nevaeh when she was put on TPN as a baby (one month old). But she learned to suck again quickly and eventualy ate solid foods (a bit later than most kids).

s, through effctes on renal prostaglandins, may cause changes in the elimination of these drugs leading to elevated serum levels of cyclosporine, digoxin, methotrexate, and increased toxicity. Nephrotoxicity associated with cyclosporine may also be enhanced. Patients receiving these drugs who are given etodolac, or any other NSAID, and particularly those patients with altered renal function, should be observed for the development of the specific toxicities of these drugs. NSAIDs have been reported to competitively inhibit methotrexate accumulation in rabbit kidney slices. This may indicate that they could enhance the toxicity of methotrexate. Caution should be used when NSAIDs are administered concomitantly with methotrexate.research medicine Government agencies and the food industry have taken steps to reduce contamination of food by the Listeria bacterium. The Food and Drug Administration and the U. S. Department of Agriculture monitor food regularly. When a processed food is found to be contaminated, food monitoring and plant inspection are intensified. If necessary, the implicated food is recalled.stroke patients These stockings can reduce the swelling that may occur after a blood clot has developed in the leg. Graduated compression stockings are worn on the legs from the arch of the foot to just above or below the knee. These stockings are tight at the ankle and become looser as they go up the leg. This creates gentle pressure up the leg. The pressure keeps blood from pooling and clotting. These stockings are typically worn for at least a year after DVT is diagnosed.sports medicine institute Iron is used to produce hemoglobin. Iron in meats is more easily absorbed into the blood than the iron in vegetables and other foods. Good sources of dietary iron include meat (including fish), fortified foods (e.g. cereals, bread, and pasta), dark green leafy vegetables, peanuts, eggs, beans, and dried fruits. Sometimes iron supplements are needed to elevate iron levels. Iron absorption is increased by vitamin C. Vegetables and fruits, especially citrus, are good sources of vitamin C.doctors associates The quantitative relationship between the in vitro susceptibility of herpes viruses to antivirals and the clinical response to therapy has not been established in humans, and virus sensitivity testing has not been standardized. Sensitivity testing results, expressed as the concentration of drug required to inhibit by 50% the growth of virus in cell culture (IC50), vary greatly depending upon a number of factors. Using plaque-reduction assays, the IC50 against herpes simplex virus isolates ranges from 0.02 to 13.5Вa0mcg/mL for HSV-1 and from 0.01 to 9.9Вa0mcg/mL for HSV-2. The IC50 for acyclovir against most laboratory strains and clinical isolates of VZV ranges from 0.12 to 10.8Вa0mcg/mL. Acyclovir also demonstrates activity against the Oka vaccine strain of VZV with a mean IC50 of 1.35Вa0mcg/mL.island pharmacy Other: Limited experience with propafenone combined with calcium antagonists and diuretics has been reported without evidence of clinically significant adverse reactions. Drugs that inhibit CYP2D6, CYP1A2 and CYP3A4 might lead to increased plasma levels of propafenone. When propafenone is administered with inhibitors of these enzymes, the patients should be closely monitored and the dose adjusted accordingly.tramadol tablets ERYGELВae Topical Gel contains erythromycin ((3R*, 4S*, 5S*, 6R*, 7R*, 9R*, 11R*, 12R*, 13S*, 14R*)-4-2, 6-Dideoxy-3-C-methyl-3-O-methyl-Оb1-L-ribo-hexopyranosyl)oxy]-14-ethyl-7, 12, 13-trihydroxy-3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13-hexamethyl-6-3, 4, 6,-trideoxy-3-(dimethylamino)-О’-D-xylo-hexopyranosyl]oxy] oxacyclotetradecane-2, 10-dione), for topical dermatological use.

Normally, we hear these sounds at safe levels that do not affect our hearing. However, when we are exposed to harmful noise—sounds that are too loud or loud sounds that last a long time—sensitive structures in our inner ear can be damaged, causing noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). These sensitive structures, called hair cells, are small sensory cells in the inner ear that convert sound energy into electrical signals that travel to the brain. Once damaged, our hair cells cannot grow back.patients first washington Referral for genetic counseling may be considered for patients with rare genetic causes of stroke (Class IIb, Level of Evidence C). There remain insufficient data to recommend genetic screening for the prevention of a first stroke.medicine In people with Pfeiffer syndrome, the thumbs and great toes are wide and bend away from the other digits.

The widespread use of SSRIs for depression provided a sizable pool of patients who could be followed in epidemiologic studies, and it was soon noted that patients being treated with SSRIs who had a history of myocardial infarction (MI) had a remarkably lower risk of recurrent MI.] The use of SSRIs in treatment of patients with acute coronary syndrome is associaetd with reduced rates of recurrent ischemia or heart failure, but carries an increased risk of bleeding.] The importance of serotonin in the blood is also illustrated by patients with serotonin-deficient platelets, who are unable to form stable blood clots and are at increased risk for life-threatening bleeding nutritional supplements Renal toxicity has been reported in a few patients with liver dysfunction who were given an oral cholecystographic agent followed by intravascular contrast agents. Administration of any intravascular contrast agent should therefore be postponed in patients who have recently received an oral cholecystographic contrast prescription There are few data regarding the coadministration of radiation therapy and epirubicin. In adjuvant trials of epirubicin-containing CEF-120 or FEC-100 chemotherapies, breast irradiation was delayed until after chemotherapy was completed. This practice resulted in no apparent increase in local breast cancer recurrence relative to published accounts in the literature. A small number of patients received epirubicin-based chemotherapy concomitantly with radiation therapy but had chemotherapy interrupted in order to avoid potential overlapping toxicities. It is likely that use of epirubicin with radiotherapy may sensitize tissues to the cytotoxic actions of irradiation. Administration of epirubicin after previous radiation therapy may induce an inflammatory recall reaction at the site of the irradiation.prognosis treatment One 20 mL volume of TPN Electrolytes (multiple electrolyte additive) is added to each liter of amino acid/dextrose solution. Alternatively, the TPN Electrolytes can be added to the bottle of amino acids or concentrated dextrose, to permit addition of the necessary phosphate additive to the remaining bottle. This latter technique helps avoid physical incompatibilities between calcium and phosphorus. A potassium phosphate additive is recommended for addition to nutritional solutions containing TPN Electrolytes. Between 10 and 30 mEq of potassium (as phosphate) should be added per liter of TPN solution, to augment the 20 mEq of potassium provided by TPN Electrolytes.fluoride tablets Although cardiovascular disease risks may be increased with oral contraceptive use after age 40 in healthy, non-smoking women (even with the newer low-dose formulations), there are also greater potential health risks associated with pregnancy in older women.supplements for teens Benzodiazepines are known to be excreted in human milk. It should be assumed that alprazolam is as well. Chronic administration of diazepam to nursing mothers has been reported to cause their infants to become lethargic and to lose weight.

This gene provides instructions for making a protein (MeCP2) that is critical for normal brain development. The MeCP2 protein likely plays a role in forming connections (synapses) between nerve cells. Researchers believe that this protein has several functions, including regulating other genes in the brain by switching them off when they are not needed. The MeCP2 protein may also control the production of different versions of certain proteins in nerve cells. Although mutations in the MECP2 gene disrupt the normal function of nerve cells, it is unclear how these mutations lead to the signs and symptoms of Rett syndrome.generics If CDAD is suspected or confirmed, ongoing antibiotic use not directed against C. difficile may need to be discontinued. Appropriate fluid and electrolyte management, protein supplementation, antibiotic treatment of C difficile, and surgical evaluation should be instituted as clinically indicated.looking for symptoms Weight Gain: Dose related weight gain was observed with pioglitazone alone and in combination with other hypoglycemic agents (Table 3). The mechanism of weight gain is unclear but probably involves a combination of fluid retention and fat accumulation.physician reviews Some studies have found an increase in the incidence of cancer of the cervix in women who use oral contraceptives. However, this finding may be related to factors other than the use of oral contraceptives and there is insufficient data to determine whether the use of POPs increases the risk of developing cancer of the cervix.nursing Caution is to be exercised in prescribing amphetamines for patients with even mild hypertension. The least amount feasible should be prescribed or dispensed at one time in order to minimize the possibility of overdosage.advair prescribing Frequent: contusion, fall, pain trauma activated; Infrequent: ankle fracture, back injury, concussion, head injury, joint sprain, limb injury, muscle strain, post procedural pain, road traffic accident, skin laceration, tooth injury.liquid vitamins PREVACID in combination with amoxicillin plus clarithromycin as triple therapy is indicated for the treatment of patients with H. pylori infection and duodenal ulcer disease (active or one-year history of a duodenal ulcer) to eradicate H. pylori.

This complication is most likely associated with more seriously affected patients.20] Bacteremia or sepsis is a potential complication. Screening of the urine for evidence of infection should be performed whenever a patient develops a fever after stroke. Some patients, especially those with major impairments, are at high risk for urinary incontinence.21] To ease care and to avoid skin complications, some patients will need an indwelling bladder catheter to treat incontinence or urinary retention. Whenever possible, prolonged use of an indwelling catheter should be avoided because of the attendant increased risk of urinary infections. Condom catheters are not satisfactory. Intermittent catheterization may be needed. Acidification of the urine also may lessen the risk of infection. Anticholinergic agents may help in recovery of bladder function. Although prophylactic administration of antibiotics usually is not done, the medications should be prescribed for patients with evidence of urinary tract infections.emergency medicine associates The dose of bisoprolol fumarate must be individualized to the needs of the patient. The usual starting dose is 5 mg once daily. In some patients, 2.5 mg may be an appropriate starting dose (see section-8.5 Bronchospastic Disease in WARNINGS]). If the antihypertensive effect of 5 mg is inadequate, the dose may be increased to 10 mg and then, if necessary, to 20 mg once daily.tablet tools Defecography is an x-ray of the anorectal area that evaluates how completely stool is expelled, identifies any anorectal abnormalities, and evaluates rectal muscle contraction and relaxation. During the exam, the doctor fills the rectum with a soft paste that is the same consistency as stool. The patient sits on a toilet positioned inside an x-ray machine, then relaxes and squeezes the anus to expel the paste. The doctor studies the x rays for anorectal problems that occurred as the paste was expelled.symptoms for rabies The Day 1 Starter instructions are for the 21-day pill pack only.
