If you are drinking more than the recommended level of coffee, you are putting your health at risk. Recently, European Food Safety Authority has proved that excess caffeine consumption could cause problems like increased heart rate, higher blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, tremors, nervousness, insomnia and panic attacks. Usually 60 ml of expresso provides around 80 mg of caffeine while 200ml cup of filter coffee has around 90 mg, according to the ESPA reports. The EFSA said that up to 400mg a day from various food and drink should have no health consequences for healthy adults. Around a third of people in Denmark, 17% in the Netherlands and 14% in Germany consume more than 400mg. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) said single doses of up to 200mg of caffeine from a range of sources such as tea, coffee, chocolate and energy drinks should be a safe level for most healthy adults. It recommends about 3 milligram per kg of body weight as the daily recommended dose. By Lizitha
According to the recent study, it was revealed that breast cancer is top killer among women in India and lung cancer among men. An international consortium of researchers led by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington analysed 28 cancer groups in 188 countries. They found that breast cancer cases have been doubled in past two decades. In 2013, there were 14.9 million new cases and 8.2 million deaths worldwide. Among men, prostate cancer caused 1.4 million new cases and 293,000 deaths. For women, breast cancer caused 1.8 million new cases and 464,000 deaths. “The good news is that it is highly preventable,” Dr. Dandona said. Similarly, mortality from breast cancer, which is responsible for most deaths of women from cancer both in India and globally, can be reduced through early screening, he said. The study, “The Global Burden of Cancer 2013,” was published in the journal JAMA Oncology on Thursday. By Lizitha
Vanya Shivashankar and Gokul Venkatachalam, both Indian-Americans, came to a tie and are named as co-winners of the annual spelling Bee contest. It is the second year in a row that co-champions were named and the fifth time in the history of the bee. Vanya Shivashankar, a 13-year-old is from Olathe, Kan., has joined her sister Kavya as the only siblings to have won the bee. Kavya won the title in 2009. Shivashankar and Venkatachalam, 14, of Chesterfield, Mo., intensively competed for 30 minutes, before both were crowned champs. Back and forth they went, correctly spelling words such as scherenschnitte, pyrrhuloxia, thamakau, caudillismo and a slew of other words which would never be able to decode. The crowd roared as Venkatachalam correctly spelled nunatak to ensure that the victory would be shared. “This is a dream come true,” said Shivashankar. “I’ve wanted this for such a long time.” She dedicated her win to her late grandmother. “I hope I make her happy with this,” she said. "I'm so, so proud and in awe of my sister," Kavya now a student at Columbia University said. “I wasn’t nervous at all,” said Venkatachalam. “It was the culmination of all the hard work of the past six years. I’m finally happy to have success.” His one word to describe his win? “Ridiculous.”The last 10 winners of the Spelling Bee competition and 14 of the past 18, have been Indian-Americans, that began in 1999 with Nupur Lala's victory, which was later featured in the documentary "Spellbound." Vanya and Gokul each will receive around $37,000 in cash and prizes and get the trophy to take home. "The most surprising words trip spellers up," Paige Kimble, the bee's executive director and the 1981 champion said. "I thought something was going to surprise us here. But it never happened." "Every year, they get better and better," said Anamika Veeramani, who won in 2010. "One thing that kind of surprised me was how often they were asking for roots. They never did that when I was competing." By Premji

In a major blow to the AAP chief Aravind Kejriwal, the Supreme Court has issued notice to the Delhi government and also stayed the observation of Delhi HC on Anti Corruption Branch's jurisdiction over Delhi Police. The apex court has also held that Delhi HC order on ACB's jurisdiction in Para 66 of the order is irrelevant. The legal tussle between the Centre and the Delhi government over the notification issued by the Home Ministry clipping the powers of the AAP dispensation has reached the Supreme Court and the Delhi High Court. The Central government’s petition came before a vacation bench, comprising Justices A K Sikri and UU Lalit and is represented by Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh, who presented before the bench that the observations made by the High Court has led to total uncertainty and made the everyday administration of national capital difficult. The petition presented before a bench of Justices BD Ahmed and Sanjeev Sachdeva, said, "The Delhi government has decided to move against the Ministry of Home Affair's (MHA's) May 21 notification. As per the notification, the LG would have jurisdiction over matters connected with services, public orders, police and land and services of bureaucrats. Allowing him discretionary powers to seek the opinion of the CM," it said. Our work in Delhi is being hindered because they don't want the magic that happened in Delhi polls to repeat in other places, says AAP leader Ashutosh.Constitution fixes everyone's responsibility, one man wanting everything to be according to his whims and fancies are causing huge harm to Delhi said Satish Upadhyay BJP's Delhi chief. Looks like AAP decided to go for confrontation rather than development. The Court will give its view, he added. AAP leader and MLA Somnath Bharti said that it is unlikely that the court has stayed a court's observation. "Never heard SC stay a High Court order. We will see the order. It is not a setback for AAP but a setback for the people of Delhi. It is unfortunate if at all the central government tries to save the corrupt officers on the basis of this order." By Premji
When Misbah Quadri, a 25-year old became woman in the news by alleging that she was asked to vacate her flat because of her religion, many people stated that religious freedom is under threat and Modi is anti minorities. Even the Presstitutes lent their contribution to add pepper to the story. But here are the facts: As many media and Presstitutes claim, Misbah Quadri is not a model. She is a journalist. She started her career at Waltham stow Recorder, a local London daily, as a trainee. She then worked as a customer support representative at Motif Pvt. Ltd. at Ahmadabad for 3 months. In June 2008, she started working as news correspondent and copy editor at DNA newspaper. In January 2010, she shifted to Mumbai and worked as a writer at Business India. From June 2013, she is working as a content specialist in Ad factors PR, an advertising company. Also, as many media houses project, she is not a Muslim, she is an atheist. Her brother Nabeel Quadri is an active Aam Aadmi Party member. Unlike the media claims, she is not living in Mumbai from one year. She has been in the city from the past five years. She herself engaged in several AAP groups and very active in them. She in fact runs an Anti-Modi group called “Apna Adda”. She is a member of “We hate Narendra Modi”. Her tweets on 21st May mocking Modi are still there in web. She is a staunch supporter of Teesta Setalvad. Coming to the story, Misbah was not asked to vacate the flat because she was Muslim. Misbah occupied the flat and started staying the flat without informing the builder. On the contrary to her version, many Muslim families are staying in the building, particularly, one in flat 804 So readers, please see the truth. On 26/05/2015 Times now also called her “honest” and self proclaimed judge Mr. Arnab Goswami was pleading for her. He needs to answer what he and his channel received to glorify this lady. Why did they give a prime slot for this false story?
Trinamool Congress has announced that West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee will accompany Prime Minister Narendra Modi to Dhaka next week for the signing of the land boundary agreement with Bangladesh. The Teesta water-sharing issue is also likely to come up for discussion. Syed Muazzem Ali, Bangladesh High Commissioner to India said, that he is “quite hopeful” that “something positive” will come out of the talks in India on the Teesta deal. “We want a win-win situation for both India and Bangladesh. The presence of the Chief Minister will ensure that interest of West Bengal is not jeopardised,” State's Education Minister Partha Chatterjee said. West Bengal Chief Minister has already given her nod regarding the implementation of Land Boundary Agreement and she has also softened her stand regarding the Teesta water sharing treaty. On February 2015, Mamatha has visited Bangladesh for an “ice-breaking” meeting and the Trinamool Congress followed it by backing the land boundary agreement. This will ensure territories in Assam, West Bengal, Meghalaya and Tripura are being exchanged with Bangladesh. Many of these are enclaves (territory belonging to one country entirely surrounded by the other country), even enclaves within enclaves. High Commissioner Syed Muazzem Ali said: “On Teesta, we had a broad-based agreement and it was about to be concluded during former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s visit. I think the West Bengal government raised certain objections regarding the quantum of water they were receiving from Sikkim. And there were discussions going on between the Union government, West Bengal government and Sikkim. That process is still continuing. Prime Minister Modi has also gone there, I saw in the newspapers that Home Minister Rajnath Singh too has gone to West Bengal.” “So the dialogue process, if it reaches a conclusive step, we will be very happy to sign the agreement. Mamata Banerjee, on her recent visit to Bangladesh, also made reconciliatory efforts. So, we hope something positive will come out of the internal negotiations going on here and we look forward to the conclusion of the Teesta agreement as soon as possible. Whether it will come through during this visit, I really cannot say because the discussions are still going on. But we are quite hopeful that something positive will come out,” he added. By Premji
In a laughable statement the haven of terrorism, Pakistan has raised allegations against India being behind the terror activities in that country. Pakistan is known as a rogue state, in which the Army and the intelligence wing ISI trains and hosts terrorists and use them for covert operations. Pakistan also plays the victim of terrorism card and extorts financial assistance from US and use the same funds to train and host terror groups. Pakistan is very much particular that the terrorism industry, they are running should not end, so that they can receive funds indefinitely. Terrorism is a cottage industry of the Pakistan Army and ISI, used to hide the incapabilities of them. The killing of Osama Bin Laden in the soil of Pakistan is the best proof to relate the rogue country with terrorism. “The statement of the Indian defense minister should be a matter of concern not to just Pakistan, but also others in the region and beyond,” said FO spokesperson Qazi Khalilullah. “Their statements confirm the Pakistan’s apprehensions about India’s involvement in terrorism in Pakistan,” the FO spokesperson maintained. For a question by a journalist regarding the footprints of ISIS in the Pakistan soil, he emphasized, “There is no footprint of ISIL in Pakistan. The people of Pakistan have no ideological, ethnic or linguistic affinities with the organisation and its members”. “However, we have seen some pamphlets and wall-chalking. That is not a proof of the presence of ISIL in Pakistan. Nevertheless, we are cognisant of the threat ISIL poses,” he said, “Our security agencies are aware of this threat and will take appropriate measures, if needed.” When asked about Axact’s fake degree scam in Pakistan. He said, “The investigation of the Axact related issues is still going on. As you are aware, a number of US entities and educational institutions have allegedly been named in the Axact scandal”.

Speaking on this, Telangana's Panchayat Raj minister KT R (Kalvagunta Taraka Rama Rao) told media that rather than asking the people to remain indoors, all the precautionary measurements have been taken to eradicate the death toll like providing adequate drinking water at public places and ensuring hospitals are well-equipped with enough staff.
