and blood pressure levels (Source: Sandra Cohen-Rose and Colin Rose/Flickr) Top News Morbid obesity appears to stand alone as a risk for heart failure but not for other major types of heart disease new research has found The study involving more than 13000 people found that morbidly obese individuals were more than two times more likely to have heart failure than comparable people with a healthy body mass index after accounting for high blood pressure cholesterol and blood sugar levels The findings suggest that even if a patient has normal blood sugar cholesterol and blood pressure levels they may still be at higher risk of developing heart failure if they are severely obese “Obesity in our study has emerged as one of the least explained and likely most challenging risk factors for heart failure because there is no magic pill to treat it” said Chiadi Ndumele Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore Maryland US Although it is not completely clear why obesity alone is linked to heart failure independent of risk factors and not to stroke or coronary heart disease Ndumele said that there is evidence to suggest that extra body weight exerts a higher metabolic demand on the heart and that fat cells in the abdomen may even release molecules toxic to heart cells Obesity has long been known to increase the likelihood of high blood pressure elevated blood cholesterol and diabetes — all established risk factors for heart and blood vessel diseases Treating and controlling these conditions have formed the bedrock strategies for reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease Ndumele said To learn if this was truly the case for all types of cardiovascular disease Ndumele and his colleagues looked at the medical records of 13730 people who were followed for approximately 23 years to assess links between body mass index and heart failure coronary heart disease or stroke After the final participant follow-up in 2012 there were 2235 recorded cases of heart failure 1653 cases of coronary heart disease and 986 strokes In their final assessment the researchers found no increase in risk for coronary heart disease or stroke in people with obesity However they found an increased risk for heart failure in obese people For every five-unit higher body mass index there was an almost 30 per cent higher risk of developing heart failure

modernisation programme involving a complete revamp of the classroom and laboratories to bring them on par with international universities Stating that the plan is to ensure that all classrooms get empowered with smart technology Vice-Chancellor Wasudeo Gade said the new changes might cost upwards of Rs 70 crore and it would take at least two years to complete the project “Until now there had been only superficial repairs to the classrooms where plastering or painting touch-ups would be done But our plan envisages a smart classroom the likes of which one sees in foreign varsities like Harvard or Oxford Currently we are in the process of preparing detailed tender documents and the restrictions and terms will be so stringent that only the best in the business will qualify At least three different tenders will be floated for civil works classroom furniture and general repairs and fourth for the classroom technology” said Gade Share This Article Related Article Asked what he actually meant by a smart classroom Gade said that they would be technology enhanced classrooms that foster opportunities for teaching and learning by integrating various kinds of learning technology “Firstly all the classrooms will be centrally air-conditioned The classrooms will have computers projectors specialised software assistive listening devices audio/visual capabilities and such things For example if a there is a class of anatomy in session and the professor wants to be able to show certain things to students they should be able to connect to YouTube or such websites where they are able to demonstrate it to students The classrooms would be connected to Wi-Fi technology and be interactive so that if in any corner of the world there is a seminar or lecture being delivered which we register for or find necessary for our students we should be able to connect to them These classrooms would also facilitate guest faculty from all over the world to connect to our classrooms” said Gade The plan goes a step further as the varsity officials want not just professors to use technology to make classroom learning more interesting but even empower students in the process “Eventually the technology will come to the aid of students as we plan for not just smart classrooms but smart desks as well There will be connectivity on each desk and a student sitting in any part of the classroom can ask questions and send their inputs to the professors during the live lecture sessions” said Gade Besides the classrooms the modernisation plan also includes repairs and upgrade of all lifts and staircases changing flooring and ceiling in and outside classrooms besides beautification of the varsity campus As far as the modernisation plan for laboratories is concerned Gade said latest equipment would be bought besides modernising all kinds of electric connections pipelines exhaust lines water supply UPS system and power backups and so on “It is a massive project and one that hasn’t been undertaken ever before Once completed our classrooms and labs will be as good as any world-class classrooms We will float the tenders within two months and even international companies can
