first_imgA sign that reads `Warning – Route for Wild Elephants` is pictured near Bangladesh`s Balukhali camp for Rohingya refugees on 14 October 2017. Wild elephants killed four Rohingya refugees including three children on 14 October as they were building a shack in Bangladesh`s southeast, police said. The incident occurred at Balukhali camp in Cox`s Bazar district, where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have set up makeshift shelters since fleeing violence across the border in Myanmar.Wild elephants killed four Rohingya refugees including three children as they were building a shack on forest land in southern Bangladesh Saturday, police said.The incident occurred at Balukhali camp in Cox’s Bazar district, where hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have set up makeshift shelters since fleeing violence across the border in Myanmar.”They were trampled to death by seven or eight wild elephants. They include a woman and three children,” Afrozul Haq Tutul, deputy police chief of Cox’s Bazar, told AFP.Two people were also injured, he said, adding all the victims were Rohingya who were building a shack on in a part of the forest where wild elephants frequently search for food and shelter. This is the second time Rohingya refugees have been attacked by wild elephants in the area. Earlier two Rohingya — an elderly person and a child — were killed by elephants as they were sleeping in a makeshift shelter. An estimated 536,000 Rohingya have arrived in Bangladesh since a fresh outbreak of violence erupted on 25 August in Myanmar’s westernmost Rakhine state.Space at established refugee camps in Bangladesh has been all but exhausted, with new arrivals hacking away trees and other vegetation anywhere they can to erect shelters from the monsoon rain.Many newly arrived refugees are camping in the open or along roadsides, where they rush aid trucks for food and other desperately needed supplies.The Bangladesh government has allocated 3,000 acres (1,214 hectares) of forest land to build proper shelters for the refugees but many have already set up shacks before the actual construction begins. A Cox’s Bazar district forest official told AFP that clashes between animals and refugees were “inevitable” as the camp areas have been a roaming ground for elephants for centuries.”This is a reserve forest land, frequented by wild Asian elephants all the time,” he said, speaking on condition of anonymity.  The authorities want to extend the existing camps around Kutupalong and Balukhali into a refugee city for 800,000 Rohingya, but the United Nations has warned such a settlement would be dangerously overcrowded.The latest violence erupted after Rohingya militant raids on 30 police posts in Rakhine triggered a military crackdown.The UN calls the army fightback a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing” with villages set ablaze to drive Rohingya civilians out.last_img

first_imgIf you think playfulness is associated only with childhood, you may be wrong.A new study suggests that playfulness in adults is a positive trait which may help them to see things from new perspectives, turn monotonous tasks into something interesting as well as help them when choosing partners and in romantic relationships.The study showed that playful people are able to reinterpret situations in their lives so that they experience them as entertaining or are able to reduce stress levels. People who describe themselves as playful are also viewed by others as such. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfPlayfulness should not be equated with humour. Instead we need a new vocabulary to describe it, said Rene Proyer from Martin Luther University (MLU) in Halle-Wittenberg, Germany.“Playfulness is an independent personality trait that shares certain aspects with five global dimensions – including extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, openness to experience and emotional stability that are frequently used to describe personality – but which cannot be interchanged,” Proyer explained.

We describe this as other-directed playfulness. By contrast, light-heartedly playful people regard their whole life as a type of game,” Proyer said.Another category includes people who like to play with thoughts and ideas – this describes intellectual playfulness. These people are able to turn monotonous tasks into something interesting.The psychologist describes the final group as being whimsically playful. “These people tend to be interested in strange and unusual things and are amused by small day-to-day observations.”Conversely, playfulness in adults has also been associated with negative connotations. Playful people are sometimes not taken seriously or are seen as unreliable, as they may easily change perspectives.last_img read more

first_imgPeople who start their day with a heavy meal are more likely to weigh less, according to scientists who confirm the age-old adage that one should breakfast like a king and dine like a pauper. A study of 50,000 people found that those who made breakfast their largest meal of the day has a lower Body Mass Index (BMI) than people who waited until supper, even when they ate a similar number of calories.Researchers from Loma Linda University School of Public Health in the US also found that extending the time between the final food of the day and breakfast was also associated with lower BMIs.”Eating a large breakfast reduces hunger cravings, especially for sweets and fats thus counteracting weight gain,” said Hana Kahleova, lead author of the study published in the Journal of Nutrition.”Regular breakfast consumption seems to increase satiety, reduce total energy intake, improve overall dietary quality, reduce blood lipid and improve insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance,” Kahleova said.”On the other hand, eating meals in the evening generally has the opposite effects, all of which adversely affect body weight,” she said.Scientists suggest maintain a healthy weight people should eat breakfast and lunch, skip supper, avoid snacks, make breakfast the largest meal of the day and fast for up to 18 hours a night.last_img read more
