They say new rules that make over-billing by private hospitals a criminal offence will hurt their ability to treat patients properly, says Subir Roy. Illustrations: Uttam Ghosh/ Rediff.com . Private hospitals and nursing homes in West Bengal have been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Last month, a 16-year-old girl died at a Kolkata hospital after she was admitted with stomach pain. Her relatives alleged medical negligence and a local mob damaged the hospital and beat up at least one doctor. Also in the news were three nursing homes in north Bengal being investigated for running a child racket. A week after the vandalism, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee held a meeting at the Kolkata Town Hall with the bigwigs of several leading private hospitals and gave them a dressing down, pulling up individuals and naming names. She also announced the setting up of a regulatory commission to monitor private healthcare setups and the tabling of a bill in the state assembly ... » Learn More about Why doctors dislike Bengal’s new health law

BASRA : It's nearly dawn and Zainab Amjad has been up all night working on an oil rig in southern Iraq . She lowers a sensor into the black depths of a well until sonar waves detect the presence of the crude that fuels her country's economy. Elsewhere in the oil-rich province of Basra, Ayat Rawthan is supervising the assembly of large drill pipes. These will bore into the Earth and send crucial data on rock formations to screens sitting a few meters (feet) away that she will decipher. The women, both 24, are among just a handful who have eschewed the dreary office jobs typically handed to female petroleum engineers in Iraq. Instead, they chose to become trailblazers in the country's oil industry , donning hard hats to take up the grueling work at rig sites. They are part of a new generation of talented Iraqi women who are testing the limits imposed by their conservative communities. Their determination to find jobs in a historically male-dominated industry is a striking ... » Learn More about In oil-rich Iraq, a few women buck norms, take rig site jobs
Spacewalking astronauts ventured out Sunday to install support frames for new, high-efficiency solar panels arriving at the International Space Station later this year. NASA 's Kate Rubins and Victor Glover emerged from the orbiting lab lugging 8-foot (2.5-meter) duffle-style bags stuffed with hundreds of pounds of mounting brackets and struts. The equipment was so big and awkward that it had to be taken apart like furniture, just to get through the hatch. "We know it's super tight in there," Mission Control radioed. The astronauts headed with their unusually large load to the far port side of the station, careful not to bump into anything. That's where the station's oldest and most degraded solar wings are located. With more people and experiments flying on the space station, more power will be needed to keep everything running, according to NASA. The six new solar panels - to be delivered in pairs by SpaceX over the coming year or so - should boost the station's ... » Learn More about Spacewalking astronauts prep station for new solar wings

Mumbai: Startups are likely to witness a strong hiring uptick this year, courtesy a bounceback in business and revenue, with growth for some even surpassing pre-pandemic levels. The pace of recruitment will increase this year, said about 72% of startup founders surveyed by debt fund InnoVen Capital in its annual Startup Outlook Report. Startups operating in logistics, digital media , e-commerce and deep-tech sectors are the most bullish about hiring. “At the beginning of the festive season in August and September last year, demand came back and the pervasive changes in consumer behaviour also played to the strengths of digital-first consumer-focused business models,” Ashish Sharma, chief executive officer of InnoVen Capital, said in the report. The Covid-19 pandemic hurt most companies last year, and they had to make tough calls around realigning team sizes and salary cuts, although a few enjoyed immediate tailwinds (edtech, online gaming, etc.), the report stated. ... » Learn More about Startup jobs seen aplenty in 2021 as post-pandemic hiring gathers pace
With one foot in Bollywood and the other in Hollywood, Ali Fazal has been having the best of both worlds. After making his debut in Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘3 Idiots’, there has been no looking back for the actor. Ahead of his next big Hollywood release, ‘Death on the Nile’ co-starring Gal Gadot, ETimes caught hold of the actor for an exclusive interview. In a freewheeling chat, Ali spilled the beans on how his mother prepped him up for the big screen unintentionally, his stint in Hollywood, and his journey in films back home in Bollywood. Excerpts… Would it be wrong to say that the year 2020 has been bittersweet for you? You incurred a loss on the personal front, but professionally you were on a roll... I suppose that could be the go-to word. It has been introspective. I mean we all are dealing with the larger problem; the world has also hurt a lot. How did your journey in showbiz begin? It happened purely by accident; I didn’t plan it this way. My life was normal; I was a ... » Learn More about #BigInterview!

Despite the devastation that has struck this tiny mountain nation, Dr Vani Kori -- who volunteered her service in Nepal for 10 days -- believes it will soon rebuild itself. On April 25, 2015, a massive earthquake devastated Nepal, leaving more than 8,000 dead and injuring many more. Relief poured in from all parts of the world, as did rescue workers. India was among the first nations to react to the crisis. A team of 10 doctors from Karnataka went to Nepal to help with the relief efforts. Dr Vani Kori, an obstetrician-gynaecologist from Shivamogga, was part of the team. Dr Kori, who is also the vice-president of the Indian Medical Association in Karnataka, describes how the team was able to assist the quake-ravaged nation. I am satisfied that I could help the victims in Nepal. The Karnataka health ministry wanted to help and asked the IMA to send four volunteers to Nepal on Sunday, April 26. I had come from Shivamogga to Bengaluru for a meeting. I ... » Learn More about ‘The Nepalese are a courageous people’
