New Delhi [India], January 29 (ANI): Ayushmann Khurrana, who is currently shooting in the North-east for Anubhav Sinha’s untitled spy thriller, recently went on a safari at the Kaziranga National Park in Assam.
“I have always been a wildlife enthusiast and I have cherished opportunities to go on safaris. I went to Kaziranga National Park and I have to admit that I had the best time. I had an amazing time spotting rhinos, deer and elephants,” he said.
The ‘Vicky Donor’ actor also shared how much he loves to explore India.
“I have always been awed by our country’s rich diversity and there is so much for all of us to explore. This incredible experience at Kaziranga will always be etched in my heart forever,” the 36-year-old actor said.
The ‘Article 15’ actor further shared his willingness to “reignite” his passion for exploring the wildlife.
“I had also visited the Mudumalai wildlife sanctuary in the past and had an incredible experience there too,” he said.
“After visiting Kaziranga, I have to admit that I would love to reignite my passion for wildlife in the times to come and make incredible memories that will surely last for a lifetime,” he added.
Khurrana had earlier last month wrapped up the shooting for Abhishek Kapoor’s upcoming romantic flick ‘Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui.’ (ANI)

Bella Hadid shares a glimpse of her life with Lyme disease

Published

By

Washington [US], February 28 (ANI): American supermodel Bella Hadid recently offered her fans a rare glimpse into how she takes care of her autoimmune disorders.
The 24-year-old star posted a series of pictures on her Instagram handle recently, showing her hooked up to an IV. She captioned the post as, “Living with a few chronic autoimmune disease = always finding time for my IVs.”

Back in 2012, Bella was diagnosed with Lyme disease alongside her younger brother Anwar, and their mother, Yolanda. In 2016, at the age of 20, she opened up to People magazine about struggling with Lyme disease while working as a model.
At the time, she said, “Life isn’t always what it looks like on the outside, and the hardest part of this journey is to be judged by the way you look instead of the way you feel.”
Bella’s older sister Gigi, who has been candid about her own struggles with a different autoimmune disorder, Hashimoto’s disease, has also previously spoken out about what it was like to grow up with her mother and siblings battling Lyme.
As most of her fans might recall, Bella has also been very vocal about the importance of mental health over the years on her social media. While celebrating her twenty-third birthday in 2019, Bella had shared a note on Instagram about asking for help in times of need. (ANI)

COVID-19 effect: Taylor Swift cancels ‘Lover Fest’ shows

Published

By

Washington [US], February 28 (ANI): The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has put a halt to almost everything, with music festivals and various cultural activities facing the brunt of the health crisis. The latest to be impacted by the pandemic is singer-songwriter Taylor Swift’s ‘Lover Fest’ shows.
The 31-year-old singer recently announced that the previously postponed two-city ‘Lover Fest’ tour has been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic.
Swift tweeted, “I love coming on here to tell you good news, or to share a new project with you. It’s not my favorite thing in the world to have to tell you the news I’m sad about.”
She added, “I’m so sorry, but I cannot reschedule the shows that we’ve postponed. Although refunds have been available since we first postponed the Lover Fest shows, many of you hung onto your tickets and I too hung onto the idea that we could reschedule.”
“This is an unprecedented pandemic that has changed everyone’s plans and no one knows what the touring landscape is going to look like in the near future. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to see you in person as soon as I wanted to,” the ‘Lover’ singer continued.
The singer added, “I miss you terribly and can’t wait till we can all safely be at shows together again.”

Swift had announced last April that she was postponing the two-city tour with the intention of coming up with the event in 2021, reported People magazine.
‘Lover Fest’ was supposed to take place in Los Angeles and Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Swift opted to forgo a worldwide tour and instead focus on that two-city event and perform at international festivals.
Since the release of the 2019 album ‘Lover’, the singer dropped sister albums titled ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’ in 2020.
The Grammy-winning singer is also set to drop the first re-recording of her albums in April following tensions with her Big Machine Label Group, Scooter Braun, Ithaca Holdings, and Shamrock Holdings – the latter of which currently owns the rights to her masters.
Last week, Swift dropped a re-recorded version of her song ‘Love Story’ after announcing that she has completed the first re-recording of her second album, ‘Fearless’.
‘Fearless’ (Taylor’s Version) is the first of six albums that Swift is re-releasing. Swift’s second studio album ‘Fearless’ won her album of the year at the Grammys in 2009, making her the youngest artist to ever win the award at the time. (ANI)

Here’s when Justin Bieber’s new album ‘Justice’ will release

Published

on

By

Washington [US], February 28 (ANI): Good news for all the Justin Bieber fans! The singer is coming out with some fresh music soon. Bieber recently revealed the release date for his sixth studio album titled ‘Justice’.
The upcoming album is set to release on March 19, this year. The Grammy-winning singer shared the release date of his album on his Instagram account and said that it is his “small part” in providing “comfort and justice” for those feeling helpless.
Sharing the album’s cover, Bieber wrote, “JUSTICE the album March 19th. In a time when there’s so much wrong with this broken planet, we all crave healing and justice for humanity. In creating this album my goal is to make music that will provide comfort, to make songs that people can relate to and connect to so they feel less alone. Suffering, injustice, and pain can leave people feeling helpless.”
Bieber also said that even though his songs cannot “solve injustice”, music is a great way of reminding each other that “we aren’t alone”.
He added, “Music is a great way of reminding each other that we aren’t alone. Music can be a way to relate to one another and connect with one another. I know that I cannot simply solve injustice by making music but I do know that if we all do our part by using our gifts to serve this planet and each other that we are that much closer to being united.”
“This is me doing a small part. My part. I want to continue the conversation of what justice looks like so we can continue to heal,” Bieber concluded his post.

The forthcoming album will feature hit tracks like ‘Holy’, featuring Chance the Rapper, ‘Lonely’ featuring Benny Blanco, and ‘Anyone’, reported People Magazine.
Bieber released his last album Changes on February 14 last year, featuring singles ‘Yummy’, ‘Intentions’, and ‘Forever’. The album was nominated for the best pop vocal album at the Grammys and served as his return to music since releasing ‘Purpose’ in 2015. (ANI)

Study: Certain occupations may be linked with heavy drinking

Published

on

By

Washington [US], February 27 (ANI): Researchers at the University of Liverpool discovered that working in specific occupations might be related to a higher probability of heavy drinking in individuals in people aged 40-69 years.
The research was published in the open-access journal ‘BMC Public Health’. The findings could be used to help target public health or work-based interventions aiming to reduce heavy drinking, according to the authors.
Researchers at the University of Liverpool found that jobs classified as skilled trade occupations, such as construction and manufacturing jobs, were most likely to be associated with heavy drinking. While jobs broadly categorised as professional occupations, for example, doctors and teachers were associated with a lower likelihood of heavy drinking.
The occupations associated with the highest rates of heavy drinking in the UK were publicans and managers of licensed premises, plasterers, and industrial cleaning process occupations, including cleaners of industrial premises. The occupations associated with the lowest rates of heavy drinking were clergy, physicists, geologists and meteorologists, and medical practitioners.
Andrew Thompson, the corresponding author said, “Heavy alcohol consumption increases the risk of physical and mental harm and by understanding which occupations are associated with heavy drinking, we can better target resources and interventions. Our research provides insight for policymakers and employers regarding which sectors may have the highest rates of heavy alcohol consumption.”
To examine associations between occupation and alcohol consumption, the authors analysed data on 100,817 adults from across the UK who were 55 years old on average and recruited to the UK Biobank between 2006 and 2010.
Participants reported their weekly or monthly alcohol intake and occupation. Heavy drinkers were defined as women consuming more than 35 UK units of alcohol per week and men consuming more than 50 units per week. In the UK, one unit of alcohol is defined as 10 milliliters (8 grams) of pure alcohol, and typical servings of common alcoholic drinks, such as a 175-milliliter glass of wine or a pint of beer, contain one to three units of alcohol.
The authors found that associations between occupation and heavy drinking differed in men and women. For men, the jobs that were most likely to be associated with heavy drinking were skilled trade occupations, while jobs classified as managers and senior officials were most likely to be associated with heavy drinking for women.
The occupations associated with the lowest rates of heavy drinking for men were clergy, medical practitioners, and town planners, compared with school secretaries, biological scientists, biochemists, and physiotherapists for women.
Thompson said, “The observed differences for men and women in associations between occupations and heavy drinking could indicate how work environments, along with gender and other complex factors, can influence relationships with alcohol. Workplace-based interventions aiming to address alcohol consumption in occupations where heavy drinking is prevalent could benefit both individuals and the wider economy by improving employee wellbeing and by indirectly increasing productivity.”
The authors cautioned that due to the cross-sectional nature of the study, it was not possible to establish a causal relationship between alcohol consumption and occupation. (ANI)

Researchers review rehab programs that could assist people with COVID-19 recuperation

Published

on

By

Washington [US], February 27 (ANI): A research led by a team of scientists at the University of Exeter claimed that progressive exercise and early mobilisation are the most important elements of rehabilitation programs that may improve recovery for people who are hospitalised with severe COVID-19.
The study reviewed all the available evidence on whether rehabilitation benefitted patients who were admitted to intensive or critical care with respiratory illness, as information on people with COVID-19 was not available when the research began.
The study, published in ‘Physiotherapy’ and supported by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Applied Research Collaboration South West Peninsula, found that progressive exercise and getting people mobile early may both help people recover from severe respiratory illness, and those findings could be applied to COVID-19 care.
They also found that rehabilitation programmes with a number of different components could be beneficial.
Study lead Vicki Goodwin MBE, Associate Professor of Ageing and Rehabilitation at the University of Exeter Medical School, said, “COVID-19 can have a devastating impact on people’s lives, long after they leave the hospital. We urgently need to find the best ways to support people to regain their health, both in hospital and when they return home.
Our research found that getting people moving early on is a key component that can help shape rehabilitation programmes, to get people back on their feet as swiftly as possible”.
The rapid systematic review included 24 systematic reviews, 11 randomised control trials, and eight qualitative studies, which interviewed patients about their rehabilitation, to explore their views and experience. From these interviews, the team found that rehabilitation can give hope and confidence to patients, although approaches need to be tailored to the individual.
One rehabilitation programme after hospital discharge from intensive care was found to give people a boost and a different outlook for the future. One patient said, “I just feel full of life. I can’t wait for tomorrow, you know. Before it was just a day after day, but now it’s- I’m looking forward to tomorrow.”
In another study, the recognition of setting goals to achieve small steps is an important part of recovery. A patient-reported, “Well, I was shocked at how little I could do, but now, it’s the other way, I’m actually shocked at how much I can do and I am doing. It’s really good.” (ANI)
