Videocon to come with the ‘SOS-Be Safe’ app something that will be incorporated in all of company’s future smartphones Dhoot in a coversation with the IndianExpresscom talked about Cube 3 the ‘SOS-Be Safe’ app and company’s plans for the Indian smartphone market in the coming months Explaining how ‘SOS-Be Safe’ app is different from similar one present in the market Dhoot said “The highlight of the app is that it is customised for every kind of smartphone whatever be the processor or RAM There are multiple unique features like Walk With Me and Reach On Time Plus the app is ad-free” Walk With Me sends location of users to their emergency contacts at regular intervals set by users Reach On Time sets an alert to emergency contacts in case users don’t reach a particular location at the set time For users to send alert themselves they need to press the power button which also acts as SOS button manually for a set number of times “The ‘SOS-Be Safe’ app will be able to send Google Maps links to your emergency contacts given your GPS is switched on at all times In case your GPS is off the app will still send out a message but without the location Your emergency contact may call you back etc” he added On asked if it feasible to keep GPS switched on at all times as it consumes a lot of battery he said the battery on Cube3 lasted easily for a day even with the GPS switched on constantly “The ‘SOS-Be Safe’ app has been optimised to work on various networks including 2G 3G etc The app also shows nearby hospital and police stations” said Dhoot However he admitted the app does not incorporate emergency numbers such as 100 for police or 101 for ambulance Users will need to dial these manually in emergency situations which isn’t quite practical But according to Dhoot the company plans to roll out one update every month which will make the app even better in the coming months The ‘SOS-Be Safe’ is currently available on Android only and will rollout for iOS users soon

(NCS) an ambitious federal plan to follow the health of 100000 children from before birth to age 21 Next Tuesday an advisory board will consider cost-cutting alternatives to the original study design But some researchers involved with the study think the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has already made a decision Study planners at NIH originally wanted to recruit pregnant women and their babies for the planned $3 billion NCS by knocking on household doors in a random sample of 105 US counties When pilot studies begun in 2009 found this to be too expensive NIH began testing alternatives such as finding women through health care providers’ offices in the counties Then in February the NIH announced a 15% cut in the NCS’s $193 million annual budget that could mean replacing the county sampling with pregnant women recruited through providers who are part of health care organizations This caused an uproar (and two adviser resignations): Many researchers involved with NCS said that only a geographically based sample would yield findings that apply to all US children including the poor And abandoning the 105 counties would waste years of work on building community support they said National Institute of Child Health and Development Director Alan Guttmacher whose institute runs NCS responded that no final decision had been made Indeed next week NCS’s advisory committee will consider new sampling designs described in this white paper Some would still sample providers geographically; others would recruit women through interested health care providers; a third set would use hybrid designs According to Nigel Paneth of Michigan State University in East Lansing who runs one of 40 NCS "vanguard" pilot sites he and others have figured out ways to cut costs in the 105 counties for example by collecting placentas but not cord blood at birth Paneth expects many vanguard site investigators will sign on to a proposal that they will present to the advisory board next week But Paneth also worries that NIH’s mind is already made up In a document dated 13 April that Paneth says NIH prepared to brief the staff members of Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) the agency writes: "Thus the Main Study will use . HMOs and other health care provider networks as the primary source for recruitment" It goes on to say "The Main Study will no longer construct a ‘national probability sample’ " "This is a rather damning illustration of how they’re [NCS leaders] not being honest with us" Paneth says NCS leaders deny that any decision has been made In a statement NCS Director Steven Hirschfeld said that the three-page Senate briefing document was "only a part of the longer verbal briefing which . provided more detailed information" He says that "the Main Study design is still being finalized" with input from the advisory committee and other stakeholders Hirschfeld added that NCS has already cut some costs by making changes such as using non-proprietary software and a central ethics board Community members in the 105 counties are also upset about the NCS changes Last month the community advisory board for a University of Mississippi-run NCS pilot site in Hinds County wrote Hirschfeld "to express our confusion deep exasperation and substantial concern" "We feel misled" the letter says The possibility that the 105 study sites will be dropped from the main study "is a travesty" and is especially troubling for a state that has the nation’s worst pregnancy and birth outcomes and significant health disparities the letter says "The Mississippi Delta is the closest thing our nation has to a third world country" the letter says and abandoning the state’s NCS sites "seriously undermines the validity of the NCS" Scientists at the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (ASCR) are fighting for their reputation and the future of their institutes A budget proposal announced last week by the Czech Republic government would cut the Academy’s funding by nearly 20% next year and almost 50% by 2012 As the country tries to wade through a broader economic crisis the Czech Republic plans only a flat research budget for the coming 3 years Yet the government has proposed going forward with plans to boost funding for applied research–to the detriment of ASCR which administers 54 basic research institutes and more than 3000 scientists This year ASCR’s budget is 588 billion CZK ($319 million) The proposed budget gives the academy 461 billion CZK in 2010 and just 281 billion CZK in 2012 ASCR leaders say the cuts would force hundreds of layoffs and the closure of some institutes (ASCR’s Web site blares "Academy in Distress") The Academy budget reductions were recommended by the country’s Research and Development Council (RDC) which advises the government on research policy They are based in part on a new evaluation system that attempts to measure the output of the country’s researchers Academy scientists say that system is unfair and values publication quantity over quality–a handful of letters to the editor and review articles can count as much as a major monograph for example "An institute that produced 20 papers in Science and 20 more in Nature would be considered substandard by the current criteria" says Vaclav Horejsi director of the academy’s Institute of Molecular Genetics in Prague The academy has enjoyed significant budget increases in recent years says Jaroslav Doleal vice-chair of the RDC who is also the national executive for Honeywell International in the Czech Republic Doleal acknolwedges the council hoped to shake things up with its proposal The more severe cuts by 2012 "need to be discussed" he says and will likely be revised At the same time Doleal adds "the academies need to accept that they are not unique and privileged players on the field anymore even in basic research" In the current economic climate he notes "many companies would be happy with a 20% cut" Moreover the budget proposal would increase money available for grants for which academy scientists can compete Doleal says But the academy can’t cover its electricity and heating bills with grants which don’t include overhead costs says Horejsi He and others contend that the country needs an overhaul of how research funding is administered Jií Chla a particle physicist at the academy’s Institute of Physics in Prague agrees the system requires revising In the past "the money was allocated by inertia" he says "We are all partly responsible for not being more careful and more foresighted" The final research budget will be decided after parliamentary elections this autumnPunjabi language faces the biggest danger from none other than the mothers who chose and prefer to communicate with their children in languages other than Punjabi, About his personal tryst with fashion, Now we know what ingredients to look for in an anti-ageing skin product but regular exercise.
