put his sex transition on hold to get pregnant by a sperm donor Hayden Cross who made headlines around the world earlier this year when he announced he was pregnant by a sperm donor has given birth to a girl Cross told The Sun that daughter Trinity-Leigh is his “angel” Cross gave birth by caesarean The girl was born on June 16 at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital He had been living legally as a man for three years and was already part-way through hormone treatment to transform from a woman to a man But the full transition was paused after the UK’s state-funded National Health Service (NHS) refused to carry out a 4000 process to freeze his eggs – which he hoped would enable him to have children in the future The former supermarket worker instead found a sperm donor via Facebook and became successfully pregnant “She’s perfect in every way…she is so good I’m so lucky” Cross was quoted as saying Following the birth Cross now plans to return to complete his gender realignment as soon as possible The proud father was born a girl named Paige 21 years ago Cross from Gloucester had said earlier “I faced the prospect of not becoming the man I’m supposed to be physically or a dad So I didn’t feel like I had any choice but to have a baby now then get back to transitioning” “In September I got pregnant by a sperm donation I found the donor on the Internet I looked on Facebook for a group and found one – it’s been shut down now I didn’t have to pay” Cross had said Cross who used to work for Asda and in a clothes shop aims to find a job once the baby is aged one Gender

Train Publisher: Paula Hawkins Random House Pages: 320 Price: Rs 599 As you’re reading Paula Hawkins’s debut thriller in great gulps much like the way her protagonist Rachel Watson an alcoholic quaffs her gin and tonics you can almost hear movie producers in America knock themselves out of their chairs in a great rush to sign a movie deal — Dreamworks won that race An unreliable narrator A missing woman Is the husband a protector or perpetrator Rings a bell The Girl on the Train is being hyped as the new Gone Girl Gillian Flynn’s 2012 bestselling novel that could have escaped you only if you were living under a rock Hawkins chooses an original premise: After losing her husband to another woman as well as her job at a PR firm in London Rachel is teetering on the edge of a tenebrific abyss Unable to admit her failures to her flatmate Cathy Rachel keeps up appearances by taking the train from Ashbury into London and back every day At a signal in Euston where the train stops very close to her old neighbourhood Rachel looks out of her window and into a happily married couple’s home — it reminds her of life with her ex-husband Tom The daily glimpses offer her a chance to live vicariously; her loneliness is in stark contrast to the couple’s togetherness But when news breaks that the wife is missing Rachel knows that she must come forward with crucial information that could lead to her recovery If only things were that easy: her alcoholism has rendered her an unreliable witness her own secrets are coming to light and in spite of her best intentions to help others Rachel is falling apart The Girl on the Train is an impressive debut and Rachel is an absolutely compelling character Inciting sympathy and exasperation in equal measure she oscillates between patches of sobriety and staggering drunkenness memory and imagination self-sabotage and redemption A former financial journalist Hawkins was inspired by her daily commute to London and how it allowed for a great deal of voyeurism; the idea for the book stayed with her And although the plot sounds very much like Flynn’s Hawkins keeps the narrative focused on Rachel and the other female characters For those who loved Gone Girl this one might lack punch The writing isn’t as sharp as it could be and Hawkins displays little of Flynn’s sophistication in charting out her whodunit failing to provide a layered look into how desperately we pursue individual happiness never mind the price we must pay For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Indo-Asian News Service |

News In what can alter the course of cancer treatment in the near future researchers have found a compound that appears to pinpoint all of the malignant cells in a patient’s body The twist is that the compound’s main ingredient is a molecule that is found in the sting of a deadly scorpion The compound called chlorotoxin is found in the venom of the death stalker scorpion known as leiurus quinquestriatus It gives malignant cells a bright fluorescent sheen so surgeons can easily spot them wiredcom reported “A scorpion-venom concoction that makes tumours glow sounded almost too outlandish to be true in the beginning But with generous donations from individuals the fluorescent scorpion toxin is now in Phase I clinical trials” informed Jim Olson from the renowned Seattle-based Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Centre that developed the technique called “Tumour Paint” Scorpion venoms are cocktails of numerous individual toxins that attack different targets within a victim’s body Olson and his team found that chlorotoxin did not attach just to brain tumours — it grabbed onto all sorts of cancers from those that affect the skin to those that destroy the lungs In lab experiments Olson began to inject fluorescent-tipped chlorotoxin into mice — the compound lit up cancer cells that no other technology could identify In one instance the chlorotoxin illuminated a clump of just 200 malignant cells that were burrowed deep within a wad of fat “That was the point we learned that the technology was far more sensitive than an MRI” Olson was quoted as saying For all

People For Jalaja the inspiration for her artwork lay in Vietnam’s “boat people” a term coined for a mass exodus of refugees who fled Vietnam by boats and ships at the end of the Vietnam war starting from 1978 till the early ’90s at the cost of being drowned captured raped or even killed by pirates Her series also includes images of boats filled with children stuck in the middle of the sea which are currently on display at Exhibit 320 gallery Reflecting on her latest series Jalaja says “The same struggle for survival of ordinary people from Syria and countries like Iraq exists currently I’m being affected by all these powerful images of human suffering My series is a contemplation on human displacement due to ethnic cleansing and border conflicts New wars stem from everywhere and people have been compelled to leave their homeland seeking refuge in unwelcome places of unknown lands Not being able to land anywhere sometimes they have to be in the boats wandering endlessly with women and children Many do not survive and the saga continues as the history repeats” Her works are part of the exhibition “Dissonant Images” where artists Koralegedara Pushpakumara and Parvathi Nayar are

Gunner’s veterinarian heard the story he immediately guessed what was in the tins according to a case summary from the Office of Indiana State Chemist (OISC) It was a mixture of Coca Cola and methomyl a chemical sold to attract and kill flies Gunner eventually recovered but other animals have been less lucky Over the past few decades wildlife researchers and environmental regulators in the United States have become increasingly alarmed by the intentional misuse of methomyl to kill “nuisance” wildlife including skunks and raccoons Sometimes however the victims include dogs cats and even bald eagles “It’s indiscriminate intentional poisoning of wildlife” says Brian Rowe who recently retired as pesticide section manager at the Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development in Lansing “Some of them die with their face in the pan that they’re licking out of I mean it kills them that quick” In response this week Michigan officials are considering new rules to limit the use of the pesticide If the rules are approved as expected Michigan would join a growing number of states and the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in trying to prevent the misuse of methomyl in part by restricting who can buy it and requiring new warning labels But some observers fear the labels—which depict a raccoon in a red circle with a slash through it—might unintentionally make matters worse Methomyl which first hit the market in 1966 has a broad range of uses including killing pests in agriculture Under federal and state law only licensed applicators can purchase and use the most potent methomyl products But fly baits which contain relatively low concentrations of methomyl are available to everyone The baits— commonly sold under the trade names Golden Malrin Lurectron Scatterbait and Stimukil—are designed to be placed in fly-prone areas such as livestock enclosures Consumers however soon figured out that the baits could be repurposed for what is often called “critter control” on internet message boards The poison is especially popular among sweet corn growers who are having trouble with raccoons Rowe says although people have employed it in attempts to kill everything from rodents to wolves Rowe has documented more than 50 examples of people swapping advice and poison recipes online and as of January instructions for how to kill raccoons with methomyl are still among the first results of a Google search for “Golden Malrin” Rowe first heard about misuse of fly bait in the 1990s and he started raising the issue with state and federal regulators in 2006 At first it was hard to get anyone to take it seriously he says People dismissed it as a local problem even though more than half of states that responded to Rowe’s inquiries confirmed they had at least one incident on record Between 2010 and 2012 regulators in Michigan and Indiana decided to see how deep the problem went Agents posed as customers in hardware and farm supply stores asking how to get rid of skunks or raccoons In about a quarter of cases the salespeople recommended fly bait One store even had a sign: “Golden Malrin—Kills Groundhogs Opossums and Raccoons—One cup fly bait and one can regular coke” “We didn’t think it was a problem in Indiana … and then finally when we started looking we said holy smokes it is a problem” says Leo Reed a certification and licensing manager at OISC in West Lafayette “Our contention is that if methomyl [fly bait] is being sold in your state it’s being misused in your state” Starting in 2010 the six states in EPA’s Region 5 a regulatory region that includes Indiana and Michigan joined forces to call for change from EPA Their proposed solution: Reclassify methomyl fly baits as “restricted use” products This would get the poison out of the hands of the general public limiting access to trained licensed applicators and the people they supervise The fly bait companies opposed that solution however and instead reached a compromise with EPA in April 2015 By early 2017 the agreement calls for the companies to stop distributing methomyl fly baits to general retailers such as hardware stores and to stop making small containers Farm supply stores will still be able to sell larger 45- and 18-kilogram containers which will come with new warning labels and explanatory pamphlets The companies and EPA plan to monitor reports of misuse through 2020 and further restrict use to licensed applicators if incidents aren’t “significantly reduced” The maker of one of the products Golden Malrin says the arrangement makes sense “[Golden Malrin] is an important tool in reducing fly populations which have the potential to spread disease to livestock and humans” wrote Mark Newberg a representative for Wellmark International in Schaumburg Illinois which produces Golden Malrin in an email “We did what was asked of us by the EPA to keep the product available as a fly insecticide” Methomyl products will now carry this logo meant to warn against using them to poison raccoons But some observers worry it might carry the opposite message Some observers however have questions about the new warning labels The red raccoon symbol is meant to be eye-catching and according to EPA it means “not for use on raccoons” But in some people’s eyes it looks more like it is advertising the chemical as a good way to get rid of raccoons “Isn’t that the best advertisement for misuse you can possibly have” Indiana’s Reed says When he described the symbol at a meeting of regulators last year participants started laughing The image could be misinterpreted says Andrea Rother an environmental and occupational health specialist at the University of Cape Town in South Africa who studies how people interpret symbols on pesticide labels Before adopting the raccoon symbol she says the companies or EPA should have tested it with consumers EPA officials say no such testing occurred but are confident that people will read the new labels as intended The agency notes that text below the symbol reads “it is illegal to use this product with the intention to kill raccoons skunks opossums coyotes wolves dogs cats or any other non-target species” “We believe that these two warnings together will make it clear that these uses are not legal” wrote an EPA spokesperson in an email Even if consumers do get the right message they’re unlikely to change their behavior Rother predicts People who use fly bait to poison raccoons already know they aren’t following label directions The most effective way to combat such deliberate misuse she says is to limit people’s access Some states are doing just that going beyond EPA’s mitigation measures and instead making the products illegal for sale to the general public Indiana reclassified methomyl fly baits as restricted use products in 2013 Michigan is following suit with a hearing to finalize the restrictions scheduled for 19 February In the rest of the country Rowe expects illegal poisonings to continue at least while current EPA rules are in place It will fall on researchers and regulators to document and report such incidents he says so that the companies and the EPA will have the data they need in 2020 to determine if the existing restrictions are working Whether or not this marks the beginning of the unraveling of the EU remains to be seen, Whether you swipe right or left on Tinder if you find someone hot (or not), and teammates. including violence.
