PHOTO: FILE Pakistan is beautiful; there are no second thoughts about it. It is common to see videos making rounds on social media and the internet that show breathtaking landscapes of Pakistan. The purpose for most of them is to appeal to viewers to visit these places and witness the wonders of nature. We see people tagging their family and friends on such posts, making plans about their next trip. However, in most cases, the decision to take a trip isn’t based solely on how beautiful the place is rather the means, resources, security and facilities available there are taken into account. Recently, the government of Pakistan extended friendly visa policies to help businesses and revive tourism industry of Pakistan. If we take a look at the kind of places … [Read more...] about How can you expect international tourists to visit Pakistan when even the locals avoid it?

By the time police arrived in the hamlet of Rainpada on July 1, 2018, the village council office was the scene of a massacre. The bright blue shutters on the windows were splintered and the door was kicked in. Inside, files were strewn across the floor and the light green walls were splashed with blood. Five men were dead, beaten to death with fists, feet, sticks, and office furniture wielded by a raging mob. The dead men—four in their late forties and one whose age remains unknown—had arrived in Rainpada earlier that day, at around 9 am, on a bus from Solapur, some 300 miles south, to attend a Sunday market. According to their families and police, all of them were members of a Nath Panthi Davari Gosavi tribe, a nomadic group that roams India’s western Maharashtra state, surviving mostly on alms. The men sat under a tree not far from where they had gotten off the bus and, as they ate, handed a biscuit to a young girl. Six weeks later, Hemant Patil, the assistant … [Read more...] about How WhatsApp Fuels Fake News and Violence in India
Keith Roach To Your Health Published 5:45 PM EST Dec 6, 2018 Dear Dr. Roach: I had polio when I was 11 years old, many years ago, and miraculously, recovered enough to live a normal life. When I was in my 40s, I developed constant back pain and visited a renowned orthopedist in Stamford, Connecticut. When I told him I’d had polio, he rolled up a paper towel and placed it under my right heel. He told me that “all people with polio have some degree of scoliosis.” The pain went away almost immediately. He gave me a prescription for a 1/4-inch heel pad (to take to a shoemaker) and to wear it in my right shoe all the time. The doctor said that for over 30 years, my back muscles have been straining to force my body to stand straight, causing the pain. I also was advised to do a set of floor-stretching exercises, which I did every morning. I am now 85 years old and never had back pain again. Whenever someone mentions they have pain from scoliosis, I tell them my … [Read more...] about Doc: Leg-length discrepancy common in polio survivors
This morning’s key headlines from GenerationalDynamics.com Dozens of reported measles cases in Israel, New York, and New Jersey as disease spreads New global surge in measles cases blamed on ‘anti-vax’ movement Dozens of reported measles cases in Israel, New York, and New Jersey as disease spreads Jewish worshippers at a Friday evening service in a temple near Jerusalem were exposed to a patient suffering from measles.

We took a look at the latest data available from national statistics office Istat to get a picture of Italy's anglophone residents. A note on the numbers: they refer to people who have officially registered their residence with the local authorities, something all foreigners in Italy are supposed to do after three months living here (but that some don't). They don't include non-Italians who only spend part of the year in Italy, naturalized Italians, or dual citizens who've registered under their Italian passport. And of course, there's no way to count all the many people from non-English-speaking countries who use the language too. But with all those things in mind, here's what we know about native English speakers living in Italy. As of January 1st, 2017, around 5.1 million non-Italians called Italy home, roughly 8.5 percent of the country's total population of 60.5 million. Native English speakers account for only a small percentage of Italy's foreign … [Read more...] about Where do all the English speakers live in Italy?
