Boys of Bejawada Rajarao Arunodaya School at Vidyadharapuram have been selected to participate in a district-level science exhibition.
The winners, Rahul of 9 th class and Jignesh of 8th class, participated in the division-level exhibition in mathematics, science and environment-related subjects, held at Zilla Parishad Boys High School at Patamata.
Elaborating on HIV/AIDS through their exhibit, Rahul and Jignesh explained that AIDS was something that everybody should be talking about.
In 2012, nearly 16 lakh people succumbed to this dreadful virus and scores had come into the fold of this epidemic mainly because of ignorance. Though there was no vaccine yet to the virus, those afflicted with it must focus on nutritious food, exercise, personal hygiene and timely medication to ensure longevity of life, they said.
School Correspondent Bejawada Rajarao, science teacher D. Jayalakshmi and others complimented the boys.
Principal Lakshmi Prasanna cut a cake to mark New Year celebrations.

A team of Australian researchers has found a link between junk food and memory loss.
The researchers from the University of New South Wales placed rats on a diet high in sugar and fat and compared their performance with rodents on a healthy diet.
Lead researcher Margaret Morris said the rats on the poor diet developed an impaired memory after just six days.
It was found that the animals being fed a poor diet also showed inflammation in the brain’s hippocampus region, the part of the brain that is involved in memory forming and storing.
“It’s a little bit too early for us to say that two are causally related, but we believe that the inflammatory change is probably highly relevant for the cognitive decline,” she was quoted as saying by the ABC news.
Morris said the memory issues became apparent well before the animals showed any physical symptoms.
“The animals of course weren’t obese after just six days on the diet. So the changes in cognition, the loss of memory, happened well before there was any weight change,” she said.
She said it is hard to say what the implications of the trial could be for humans. PTI
“It’s hard of course to extrapolate to humans. But there is data in human volunteers fed a poor junk diet for just five days, that there was a loss of executive function,” she said. “So longer reaction times, for instance.”PTI

STUDY Consuming nuts can reduce risk of death
Consuming nuts at least seven times a week can reduce risk of death from any cause by 20 per cent, says a new study. The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), also establishes a significant association between the consumption of nuts and a lower incidence of death due to heart diseases, cancer and respiratory diseases. The study said nutrients in nuts, such as unsaturated fatty acids, protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants may have heart-protective, anti-carcinogenic and anti-inflammatory properties. “This study adds to the current strong body of evidence that demonstrates that eating nuts daily confers health benefits and supports long-term health,” said Karen Lapsley, chief scientific officer for the Almond Board of California. “IANS

In the eyes of all, biased and bigoted,
With no one to support, she suffers this harsh world solitary.
Confined in her walls, her feeling’s distorted,
Will she ever encounter the comforts of security?
Her voice suppressed, her actions restrained,
To protect her from the hands of the beast’s,
Her existence hidden and her ‘futile’ soul chained.
Will the injustices ever cease?
She did question, but the answer was clear,
‘The world is not safe my child’
Unfortunately true and regrettably sever.
Will this problem ever subside?
Each of her days spent in agonizing anguish
And all her wishes subdued.
Can she hold on or will she perish?
Will she still be pursued?
And as she fights and combats these torments,
And hopes she regains her long lost smile,
She asks herself, while she glumly laments,
‘Why was I ever born a girl child?’
