GNC Research Reveals India’s Health Perception Disconnect

By 121 News

Chandigarh 31st May:- GNC, a leading nutrition and supplement brand, today announced its report, which finds a disconnect between perception and reality of health and wellness among Indians. Most Indians view their health as acceptable or excellent (70%) and describe themselves as balanced eaters (69%) – yet their lifestyle habits reveal a contradictory picture with 44% of respondents admitting to rarely or never exercising and being negligent eaters.

Shadab Khan, CEO, GNC India said that while the consequences of Indians' lifestyle and current choices are widely known, as are the benefits of a balanced diet and exercise, our research finds a clear disconnect between how we view our healthy lifestyles versus our actual behavior. He added further that there is currently a form of 'collective delusion' when it comes to health and fitness; the vast majority of Indians believe themselves to be fit and healthy, while their daily behaviour suggests precisely the opposite.

Specifically, while the majority (68%) of survey respondents agree obesity directly or somewhat contributes to a person's overall health, a proportionate number of respondents admit to eating fast food at least twice a week (47%) – with 15% consuming take-away food daily, and 41% eating fresh fruit only once a week or less. These negative eating habits spike during holidays and festivals, with 36% of respondents admitting to indulging in extra sweets and 26% disrupting their regular eating patterns.

India's state of health has long been a source of concern, as 72 million Indians are currently diagnosed as diabetic – making the country the diabetes capital of the world according to the International Diabetes Federation. The health delusion illustrated within GNC's findings shed light to the cause behind this epidemic.

Shadab Khan said that there is a need to educate consumers about the benefits and significance of adequate nutrition, regular sleep and recovery and exercise. He said that according to our research, work colleagues (for 29% of response Shadab Khan dents) and close family (27%) remain the most trusted and influential purveyors of health and lifestyle information. We at GNC believe the conversation needs to shift and become a collaborative effort to create awareness and drive India toward a healthier future.

पदोन्नति के मामले में पीडब्ल्यूडी में हो रहा एससी वर्ग से भेद‍भाव: फकीर चंद जस्सल

By 121 News

Chandigarh 30th May:-  अनुसूचित जाति और पिछड़ी श्रेणियां फेडरेशन पंजाब के सूबा प्रधान अमरीक सिंह बंगड़ और पीएसईबीएससी पावर इंजीनियरिंग और आफिसर्स एसोसिएशन पंजाब के सूबा प्रधान इंजीनियर फकीर चंद जस्सल ने पंजाब की मौजूदा कांग्रेस सरकार पर एससी वर्ग की विरोधी होने का आरोप लगाया।

फकीर चंद जस्सल ने पंजाब की मौजूदा कांग्रेस सरकार पर एससी वर्ग की विरोधी होने के आरोप लगाए हैं। इन नेताओं ने प्रेस क्लब में पत्रकारों से बातचीत करते हुए कहा कि कैप्टन सरकार इस वर्ग के साथ धोखा कर रही है। जब सामान्य वर्ग को पदोन्नति देनी हो तो हाईकोर्ट के आदेशों को अनदेखा किया जाता है जबकि एससी वर्ग को पदोन्नति देते समय हाईकोर्ट के फैसलों का हवाला देकर पदोन्नति रोक ली जाती हैं। उदाहरण के तौर पर पीडब्ल्यूडी में र‌न‌िंग रोस्टर का गलत इस्तेमाल करके एससी अधिकारी को जून 2016 से पदोन्नति नहीं दी जा रही। सामान्य वर्ग से संबंधित इंजीनियर अरुण कुमार को अनुसूचित जाति के हक के विरुद्ध इसी माह मुख्य इंजीनियर बना दिया गया है। इस विभाग में 8 मुख्य इंजीनियर के पदों में 2 एससी वर्ग के पहले मुख्य इंजीनियर थे लेकिन अब एक भी मुख्य इंजीनियर नहीं। इन नेताओं ने कहा क‌ि पीडब्ल्यूडी में निगरान इंजीनियरों, कार्यकारी इंजीनियरों, उपमंडल इंजीनियरों के पदों पर भी एससी वर्ग को पदोन्नति नहीं दी गई, जिस कारण वह बिना तरक्की ही सेवामुक्त हो गए या हो रहे हैं।

पीएसपीसीएल और पीएसटीसीएल में कोई भी डायरेक्टर एससी वर्ग का नहीं है जबकि डायरेक्टर जेनरेशन का पद खाली है। इस समाज की बिजली के 200 यूनिट की रियायत भी पंजाब सरकार ने पत्र जारी करके बंद कर दी है। 20 फरवरी के पंजाब एवं हरियाणा हाईकोर्ट के फैसले को लेकर सरकार द्वारा कोई नोटिफिकेशन जारी नहीं किया गया। मुख्यमंत्री कैप्टन अमरिंदर सिंह कह रहे हैं कि पदोन्नतियों में आरक्षण लागू रहेगा।  इन नेताओं ने पंजाब सरकार से मांग की कि दो मुख्य इंजीनियर पीडब्ल्यूडी में तुरंत नियुक्त किए जाएं और इंजीनियर अरुण कुमार को तुरंत रिवर्ट किया जाए। पीएसपीसीएल में एससी वर्ग के डायरेक्टर जेनरेशन लगाए जाएं और कनेक्शन बंद करने वाला सर्कुलर वापस लिया जाए। माननीय सुप्रीम कोर्ट द्वारा एसएलसी 30621 आफ 2011 के फैसले दिनांक 15 मई 2018 के अनुसार आरक्षण जारी रखा जाए। इन नेताओं ने सरकार के चेतावनी दी कि अगर एससी वर्ग से भेदभाव नहीं रुका तो वे सड़कों पर आने पर मजबूर होंगे।

Samsung Revolutionizes Movie Theatre Experience with World’s First Onyx Cinema LED Screen

By 121 News

Chandigarh 30th May:-  Committed to offer the consumers with innovative and best-in class technologies, Samsung India, country's most trusted consumer electronics brand, today reconceptualises the cinema experience by bringing in World's first ONYX Cinema LED Screen in India.

Commenting on the launch Puneet Sethi, Vice President, Consumer Electronics Enterprise Business, Samsung India said that witnessing the growing demand for advanced theatre technology from movie experts and consumer alike, Samsung planned to make a radical shift from the theatre projection systems to the LED screen in India. He added further that we are introducing a game-changing technology which would showcase the work of our directors as intended and at optimal quality. In addition, it will also offer our movie-goers a new level of viewing environment, immersive in every aspect.

Inspired by the gemstone of the same name, the Onyx screen has the ability to deliver un-parallel picture quality with its true black colour bringing the content to life with higher vibrancy and accuracy. It comes with comprehensive solutions Onyx View, Onyx 3D and Onyx Sound.

Combined by an infinite contrast and specialized low-tone greyscale settings, Onyx VIEW delivers brighter and more detail-rich content. The screen delivers HDR (High Dynamic Range) to the cinema, showcasing on-screen contents at peak brightness level, nearly 10 times greater than that offered by standard cinema projectors (146fL versus 14fL) with improved uniformity and free of optical distortion and interference. It is industry's first DCI-certified cinema screen available in various sizes. The technology delivers better visual quality, technical performance and reliability beyond that of traditional projector-based operations.

The screen maintains its advanced presentation capabilities in ambient lighting conditions regardless of the featured on-screen content and accommodate users who wish to utilize their theatres for corporate events, concert, sports event viewing & gaming competitions.

The 3D Onyx Cinema LED screen crafts 3D movie content more realistically, through enhanced brightness and consistent colour amplification. Glass-wearing viewers can now have the benefit of subtitle text, images and even minor visual details with unprecedented clarity and without the dark, blurry shadowing.

The screen also offers state-of-the-art Onyx surround sound from JBL by Harman International and Samsung's Audio Lab, bringing scenes to life through clear and consistent audio. This integration eliminates rearward bias by expanding the audio "sweet spot" within Onyx theatres, and ensures that all attendees can enjoy the same presentation throughout, regardless of the seat location.

Samsung has collaborated with cinema content developers and cinema technology solution services provider to ensure that the display can optimize upcoming films as the theatres upgrade their screen to the Onyx screen.

Clay Modeling Workshop Starts at Nabha Patiala

By 121 News

Chandigarh 29th May:-On the first day of a two day Clay-Modeling workshop by sculptor Basudeb Biswasat organized by Punjab Lalit Kala Aklademi at the Government Arts and Crafts Teachers Training Institute, Nabha, Patiala which will conclude on 30th May 2018.

Approximately 100 students, more girls than boys and faculty of the institute keenly observed and participated in this workshop. Basudeb explained in detail the finer nuances of the craft of modeling the clay into interesting shapes and forms. Students who are budding artists and teachers who will shape the future of young students in schools in Punjab, immersed themselves fully and played with clay and turned it into faces, toys and various other shapes giving expression to their inner most thoughts and emotions.

The workshop will continue tomorrow as well.

Diwan Manna, artists and President of Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi shared with the participant that the thought behind this was to introduce art teachers to modern and traditional techniques of art making so they could further educate students about the latest and age old trends in the world of art.

Students studying in Arts and Crafts Training Institutes are trained to become art teachers and impart art education to very young and impressionable minds in schools. Punjab Lalit Kala Akademi thought it to be the most fertile ground where the Akademi could make intervention by bringing to them some of the significant artists who would share with them their art practices and also educate them about those disciplines which these teachers in the becoming have not been exposed to.

Akademi plans to organize two-three such workshops in this Institute every year so that art education in the state could be improved from the grass roots level.

Akademi is already in communication with many educational institutes in Punjab and is in the process of involving the School Education and Higher Education departments for organizing Art Workshops, Audio Visual Presentations and Film screenings for faculty and students wherever art is taught as a subject. Akademi is designing different programmes for those institutes where art is not taught as a subject as yet. To expose them to new mediums and unheard of techniques, those disciplines of art would be taken to these schools and colleges which are not already being taught there.

Chandigarh 29th May:- लक्ष्य ज्योतिष संसथान का मुख्य उद्देशय वैदिक ज्योतिष की धरोहर को आने वाले पीढ़ी को समर्पित करना एवं ज्योतिष विद्या के प्रति भ्रांतियों को दूर करना है। संसथान का निजी विचार जो वेदों में है वो सर्वत्र है और जो वेदों में नहीं है वो अन्यत्र भी नहीं है। यह कहना है लक्ष्य ज्योतिष संसथान के चेयरमैन डॉक्टर. रोहित कुमार आचार्यजी, अध्यक्ष आचार्य वीना शर्मा और उपाध्यक्ष परवीन रजवाल का।

चंडीगढ़ में आयोजित पत्रकार वार्ता में आचार्य रोहित कुमार ने कहा की प्रतिदिन कुंडली के विश्लेषण में, जिसे गोचर भी कहते है ! और देखने में आता है कि  अनुवांशिक गुण उनको मातापिता से संतान में हस्तांतरित होते है, जैसे किसी भी दम्पति को काल सर्प योग के कारण संतान न हो पा रही हो तो इष्ट देव के आशीष से और गुरु के आशीर्वाद से और ज्योतिषीय उपायोंके सहयोग से संतान होती है तो वो भी काल सर्प योग से युक्त होगी ।

उन्होंने आगे कहा कि ज्योतिष विद्या में नवग्रहों और12 राशियों व 27 नक्षत्रो और  योगों का  विशेष महत्व है। वैदिक ज्योंतिष का जन्म वैदिक काल में ही हो गया था, वेदों में होम-हवनयज्ञ आदि करने के लिए एक निश्चित समय बताया गया है । उस महूर्त कि जानकारी के लिए ज्योतिष्क का अविष्कार हुआ। वेदों में काल कि गणना के लिए युग, सवंतसर ऋतु, मास,पक्ष, तिथि, नक्षत्र योग, करण, वार एवं राशियों कि परिभाषाएं मिलती है। इसीलिए इस शास्त्र को वैदिक ज्योतिष भी कहते है। वेदों में गृह शांति के लिए विधि विधानोंका संकेत मिलता है।ज्योतिष विद्या में कुछ कुयोग भी होते है, जिसके कारण जातक को कष्ट मुसीबतों का सामना भी करना पड़ता है। ऐसा जातक अपने जीवन कि संघर्ष में दो कदम आगे बढ़ता है तो चारकदम पीछे आता है । इस जगत को धरम और अध्यात्म कि भाषा में मृत लोक और भोग लोक भी कहा जाता है । यहाँ जो भी जन्म लेता है, उसे अपने पूर्व जन्म के फल के अनुसार सुख यादुःख भोगना पड़ता है।

ब्रह्माण्ड मंडल में  प्रत्येक गृह लगातार  सुरज की परिक्रमा करते हैं और गोचर रहते हैं और अपना कुछ न कुछ प्रभाव रखते है और इस संसार में वह मानव पर प्रत्येक दुखद और सुखदघटना के लिए जिम्मेवार होते है। लक्ष्य ज्योतिष संसथान का मुख्य उद्देशय ज्योतिष शास्त्र मानव मात्र कल्याणर्थ उदेशय कि पूर्ति करना है।

आचार्य रोहित कुमार ने कहा कि सफल और सुयोग्य ज्योतिष अच्छे मनोचिकत्सिक का कार्य भी करता है। ज्योतिष शास्त्र में दान, पुण्य, हवन, यज्ञ एवं गाय कि सेवा, पेड़ पौधे लगानेऔर चालीसा का पाठ करने जैसे सरल उपायों को बताने का कार्य करता है। जब व्यक्ति अपने भविष्य के बारे में सोचता है तो वो तनाव में आ जाता है, ज्योतिषीय उपाय उसे इससे राहतदिलाते है। वैदिक ज्योतिष सूत्रों पर आधारित है। ज्योतिष विद्या से जातक अपनी कठिन से कठिन समस्या का भी समाधान पा सकता है।

Four Years of BJP Rule As An Era of ‘National Betrayal’: Ashok Tanwar

By 121 News

Chandigarh 26th May:-  Dr. Ashok Tanwar, former M.P., President, Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee has called the four years of BJP rule as an era of 'National Betrayal'.  During these four years all the sections of the society have been betrayed by the BJP Government.

He was addressing the media persons in connection with call given by the Congress President Shri Rahul Gandhi to observe May 26 as "Vishvasghat Divas".  Smt. Sumitra Chauhan, President, Haryana Mahila Congress was also present on this occasion.

Giving facts and figures Dr. Tanwar said that Narender Modi has literally proved to be "Kisan Virodhi"  (anti-farmer).  The cost of input has increased but the return to the farmers for their crops has decreased. He said that as per RBI report the Rural Wage Growth which was 38% in 2014 has come down to 0% in 2018. Dr. Tanwar said that slogan of Doubling Farmers' Income by 2022 is merely a Jumla.  The BJP has promised to give farmers cost + 50% for their agricultural produce but this has proved a white lie. He said that the Fasal Bima Yojna has benefited the insurance companies and not the farmers.  The profit of insurance companies has risen to 14828 crore rupees, whereas the compensation paid to the farmers has been merely 5650 crore.

The youth had been promised by Narender  Modi that they will get 2 crore jobs every year, but only 4.16 lakh jobs were created in 2016-17 and the number of unemployed youth in February 2018 has swelled to 3.10 crore. He said that demonetization has resulted in loss of 15 lakhs jobs. He said that BJP Government has no clear education policy and in the four years of its rule the Cess charged for education has amassed to the tune of 160786.85 crore rupees and there is no clarification where this amount has gone.  There have been frequent incidents of leakage of papers and another mafia named "Exam Mafia" has come into existence in the BJP misrule.

During the elections Narender Modi has shouted hoarse that he will never eat nor he will allow to be eaten, but four years of BJP rule under Narender Modi has resulted in scams like Punjab National Bank and other Public Sector Banks.  This has resulted in shacking of faith of the countrymen in the banking system of India.  A total of 61036 crores rupees of scams have taken place in 12 banks.  He said that the Modi Government has not taken any action against the culprits of Vyapam, PDS and other scams. Narender Modi is keeping a stony silence in the matters of Jai Shah son of Amit Shah, President, Bhartiya Janta Pary and Piyush Goyal, a Union Minister. The people of the country have suffered a lot due to "Modinomics" which have destroyed the country's economy.

The PCC Chief said that all the sections of the society even the house hold ladies are suffering from the pinch of petroleum price rise which have crossed all the reasonable limits. The price of petrol was 76.61 in 2014 when the crude price was $ 107.09 per barrel and now when the crude price is $ 76.43 per barrel, the petrol price has jumped beyond 80 Rs. per litre. The rise in the price of LPG has been more than 50% during these four years.

Dr. Tanwar announced that to educate the people of Haryana about the misrule of BJP at the Centre and in the State, the second phase of "Haryana Bachao-Parivartan Laao" cycle yatra will from Chautala in Sirsa district and May 31, 2018 and it will conclude on June 4, 2018 in Sirsa town.  He said that in connection with the "Save Constitution Campaign" launched by the Congress President Shri Rahul Gandhi, a state level sammelan will be organised by the Pradesh Congress at Karnal on May 27, 2018. 

Earlier in the day, the Congress workers led by Dr. Ashok Tanwar and Sumitra Chauhan held a protest demonstration. This was a part of the call given by the Congress President Rahul Gandhi to observe Indian Betrayal Day against the misrule of BJP. The Party workers marched towards the Secretariat carrying the effigy of Narender Modi shouting slogans against the BJP Govt and the Prime Minister.  There were stopped by the police from proceedings to the Secretariat.  The Congress workers at that spot burnt the effigy of Narender Modi.  On this occasion Dr. Sneh Lata Ahalawat, Sr. Vice President, Haryana Pradesh Mahila Congress and Raghav Vij, State Coordinator I.T. Cell got their heads shaved as a symbol of mourning.
