Health Check up for Just Rs. 120 B.T.M. Layout: Healthcare solutions provider e-Kshema has set up 18 health kiosks across south Bangalore to provide medical check-ups, including tests, for just Rs.120. "At any of our 18 health kiosks, a person can have a general check-up of body temperature, pulse rate, blood pressure, blood sugar, blood test for differential count (DC) and urine test for Rs.80. Tests for malaria or tuberculosis disease will cost another Rs.40," K2 Technology Solutions chief executive Anant Koppar said. The clinics have been set up in civic hospitals of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) across eight assembly segments of the Bangalore South parliamentary constituency, represented by

Bharatiya Janata Party general s e c r e t a r y A n a n t h Ku m a r. The kiosks are open to public, especially the urban poor for early check-up of their health, including disease identification at affordable cost and to improve the healthcare delivery system in the city. The kiosks are also equipped to provide diagnosis, patient care and monitor patients remotely using innovative applications and costeffective technologies.

Are Vaccines Greatest Frauds of our Time? How many Americans really die of the flu each year? The report comes from the Research and Scientific Affairs Epidemiology and Statistics Unit. Get ready for some surprises, especially since the US Centers for Disease Control keeps trumpeting fludeath annual numbers as 36,000. Recently, Tommy Thompson, head of US Health and Human Services, stated that 91 per cent of the people who die from the flu in the US every year are 65 and older. So you might engage in a little arithmetic and figure out how many people under 65 are really dying from the flu each year. But no matter. The raw all ages stats are low enough. Quite low enough. Do you see what is going on here? A man shouts, "Where is my flu shot? We're all going to die!" Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, Congress is planning a measure that will guarantee vaccine manufacturers annual biillion

payoffs, no matter how many doses are left over unused. Jon Rapport, a senior investigative reporter has long warned about the dangers of vaccines, especially for babies and young children, whose immune system are not capable of coping with the many contaminants and toxic preservatives in vaccines. There are other reasons why even adults should avoid them. Now, for the first time, a former insider from within the vaccine industry has agreed to talk about the dangers of vaccines. "Dr. Mark Randall" is the pseudonym of a former vaccine researcher who worked for many years in the laboratories of major pharmaceutical houses and the US government's National Institutes of Health. He is now retired and has reluctantly agreed to speak out. In his opinion, his testimony matches all the other claims that I he has studied in past years.

Lake Teams Get Along Arekere: Arekere N e i g h b o u r h o o d Improvement Trust (ANIT) and One Bengaluru organized a meeting of lake teams on 5th Aug 2012. Representatives from 20 different lake teams participated in the meeting. Dr Ravi Ralph, CEO of Lake Development Authority (LDA), Mr Brijesh Kumar, Chief Conservator of Forest BBMP, Mr Somesh, Chief Engineer BDA, Dr Ashwin Mahesh from OneBengaluru and urban expert and Mr Purushotam Ravi, Corporator of Arakere area were the chief gusts.

Dr Ashwin Mahesh talked about how each small activity of documenting lake info by public can help in evolving a solution and build the infrastructure and setup required to solve the problem. Dr Ravi Ralph talked about the various challenges faced by different lakes in the city. He was very clear that encroachment of lakes and destruction of catchment areas of lakes is causing havoc. He highlighted the heavy contamination of lakes that cannot support even aquatic life.

Jon Rapport's interview with Dr. Randall's intimate knowledge of vaccine dangers is important for his testimony about the inside workings and cover-ups between government and the vaccine industry - the two sources that keep trying to assure Americans that they can be trusted. For a question, Why are we quoted statistics which seem to prove that vaccines have been tremendously successful at wiping out diseases?, Dr. Randal answers, "To give the illusion that these vaccines are useful. If a vaccine suppresses visible symptoms of a disease like measles, everyone assumes that the vaccine is a success. But, under the surface, the vaccine can harm the immune system itself. And if it causes other diseases - say, meningitis - that fact is masked, because no one believes that the vaccine can do that. The connection is overlooked.

Dr. Randal talks a b o u t v a c c i n e contamination. He says careless errors in the manufacturing errors are part of structural problems. In the Rimavex measles vaccine, he found various chicken viruses. In polio vaccine, he found acanthamoeba, which is a so-called "brain-eating"

who had the thriving to break into the world of art in her early stages. She was taken by the mystery of Hampi on her first visit to the historical place. Hampi is located on the south bank somewhere in the middle of Tungabhadra river's path. In this area the river takes a number of twists are turns owing to the rocky terrain. The river has immense significance in forming the political & religious history of Hampi. The river along with the boulder-strewn hills formed the northern barrier of the capital. It was not easy for an invading army cross the river without the fate of a sure defeat. The river and the ruins of Hampi remained as her treasure house that has finally taken a creative form in her artistic blend. She also reveals an interesting fact that children are prone to love art if they are rightly exposed to art galleries. “My paintings mean a great deal to me, Nature and her kaleidoscopic world of colors inspires my work.” says the abstract artist who is looking forward to a successful sale of her th paintings in the 9 Annual Show.
