First Global Forum of Face Equality International takes place in London

first_imgMar 12 2019The first Global Forum of the new alliance, Face Equality International, is taking place this week, 12th-14th March in central London. Representatives of 19 NGOs and charities have traveled from around the world to take part — to discuss how best to promote face equality and stamp out disfigurement discrimination wherever it happens. The delegations include leaders of the nine ‘founding NGOs’ such as the Sunshine Welfare Foundation in Taiwan, Smile Train, the Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors and FACES in the US, the European Cleft Organization in the Netherlands, the Smile Foundation in South Africa and Changing Faces in the UK. They will be joined by some of the 18 NGOs that have joined Face Equality International since it was launched just four months ago.  Related StoriesSolid fuel use linked with increased risk of hospitalization or death from respiratory diseasesWhat’s the best time of the day to lose weight?Loose double-stranded RNA molecules spur skin rejuvenationFace Equality International is the brainchild of Dr James Partridge OBE, the founder and former CEO of the UK charity Changing Faces. He says that disfigurement is a neglected global human rights issue: “Wherever they live in the world, people with disfigurements — whether from cleft lips and palates, birthmarks, burns, acid violence, facial paralysis like Bell’s palsy, skin conditions such as psoriasis and vitiligo or after facial cancer — have to deal with many psychological, social and economic challenges in living confident, successful lives in the 21st century”.  “All the Members know from their clients/users that having a facial difference can mean someone is isolated and friendless, facing bullying, ridicule and staring in public, low expectations in school, problems getting work and harassment in the workplace, abuse on social media and stereotyping in the media. The unexpected but encouraging growth in membership in the three months since our launch shows the need for our organization”.Face Equality International will challenge such unfairness and discrimination by mobilizing NGOs around the world and sharing the lessons of how to advocate for face equality effectively — such as awareness-raising initiatives with teachers, culture and business people, and ripostes to everyday incidents of facial prejudice in the media. The alliance will also campaign for people with disfigurements around the world to be properly protected by law from facial discrimination in workplaces, on social media, in schools or public places.Topics to be debated at the Global Forum include how to best challenge social media abuse and influence the attitudes of the public and the media, and how to prepare teachers to create inclusive education and to meet the targets laid down in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The Forum will also be the first opportunity for Members to explore how the work together effectively. Source: read more

Study reveals another surgical option for patients with irreparable rotator cuff tears

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Mar 18 2019The arthroscopic superior capsule reconstruction (SCR) surgical technique offers patients with irreparable rotator cuff tears restored shoulder function and the opportunity to return to sports and physically-demanding work, according to research presented today at the AOSSM/AANA Specialty Day in Las Vegas, Nevada. The study, which examined patient outcomes up to five years after surgery, built upon earlier research which examined short-term patient results.”We studied 30 patients who were treated with arthroscopic SCR, and consistently saw improvements in outcomes related to shoulder function and the daily lives of those treated,” noted lead researcher Teruhisa Mihata, MD, PhD, from Osaka Medical College in Osaka, Japan. “The technique allowed 11 of 12 patients who had previously worked to return full-time at five-year follow-up, and all eight who had participated in sports to return to play.”Related StoriesAMSBIO offers new, best-in-class CAR-T cell range for research and immunotherapyPenn Medicine and Grand View Health partner to provide advanced orthopedic careTen-fold rise in tongue-tie surgery for newborns ‘without any real strong data’The study measured both American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons (ASES) and Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) scores in patients, which improved significantly at both one and five years after surgery. The average ASES scores rose from 29.0 before surgery to 83.0 at one year and 92.3 at five years after surgery, with JOA scores rising from 51.5 before surgery to 85.9 and 91.4, respectively. Active elevation increased from 85 degrees prior to surgery to 151 degrees 5 years after the operation. Out of 30 patients followed for five years, only three (10%) experienced graft tears. Those who demonstrated graft healing also showed no sign of glenohumeral osteoarthritis during the five-year period.”Our latest research shows continued promise for the arthroscopic SCR technique, particularly to restore a patient’s shoulder function and allow them to return to work or sports if they so choose,” said Mihata. “We plan to continue studying longer-term outcomes for patients, focusing on continued function and the appearance of osteoarthritis.” Source: read more

Study Pathogenetic downregulation of adenosine linked to restless leg syndrome

first_img Source: Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Apr 4 2019Researchers have identified a common mechanism implicating adenosine in the cause of restless leg syndrome (RLS) symptoms — the periodic limb movements characteristic of RLS and the state of enhanced arousal that both disrupt sleep. Preclinical findings in a rat model of RLS and clinical results in humans together suggest that targeting the pathogenetic downregulation of adenosine A1 receptor (A1R) may be a promising therapeutic strategy, according to an editorial published in Journal of Caffeine and Adenosine Research, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers.

More than one pathogenetic mechanism likely underlies the spinal cord-related and non-spinal cord-related aspects of the disorder, and researchers have long looked for a biochemical link that could serve as a new therapeutic target. A combination of preclinical and clinical findings has shown that brain iron deficiency (BID) is an early factor in the pathophysiology of RLS and that BID in rodents causes downregulation of A1Rs in the brain.”Based on these results,” Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Caffeine and Adenosine Research, Sergi Ferré, MD, PhD, and his research colleagues in the Integrative Neurobiology Section, National Institute on Drug Abuse, National Institutes of Health (Baltimore, MD), “have hypothesized that a hypoadenosinergic state secondary to A1R downregulation could be mostly responsible for the hyperglutamatergic and hyperdopaminergic states of RLS that determine the sensorimotor symptoms of RLS as well as the hyperarousal component.” They add, “We, therefore, predicted that inhibitors of equilibrative nucleoside transporters, by increasing the striatal extra-cellular levels of adenosine, could provide a new therapeutic approach for RLS.”last_img read more

Daily selfweighing can prevent holiday weight gain

first_imgReviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)May 23 2019To avoid putting on extra pounds at the holidays, researchers have found that U.S. adults who engage in daily self-weighing can prevent holiday weight gain, according to a new study to be published in the June 2019 issue of Obesity.The study examined 111 adults between the ages of 18 and 65 implementing the new intervention from mid November 2017 to early January 2018. Researchers then engaged in a 14-week follow-up period after the intervention. Participants who weighed themselves on a daily basis on scales and received graphical feedback of their weight changes either maintained or lost weight during the holiday season while participants who did not perform daily self-weighing gained weight.The study’s authors report that participants in the intervention group were instructed to try to maintain their baseline weight throughout the holiday season. However, no additional instructions on how to achieve that goal were provided. This allowed each participant to self-select how they would modify their behavior. For instance, an individual could become more physically active or decide to eat less if a weight increase was noticed. Participants in the control group were given no instructions. Michelle vanDellen, an associate professor in the University of Georgia Department of Psychology and second author on the paper, said the findings support discrepancy theories of self-regulation.Related StoriesMetabolic enzyme tied to obesity and fatty liver diseaseObese patients with Type 1 diabetes could safely receive robotic pancreas transplantNovel program in England’s third largest city helps reduce childhood obesity”People are really sensitive to discrepancies or differences between their current selves and their standard or goal,” she said. “When they see that discrepancy, it tends to lead to behavioral change. Daily self-weighing ends up doing that for people in a really clear way.”Previous research has shown that the holiday season can lead individuals to gain weight that persists after the holidays are over, which could contribute to annual weight gain. Cooper added that it has also been shown that individuals with overweight or obesity are susceptible to gaining the most weight. In contrast, individuals who regularly exercise are not protected from weight gain during the holidays.Cooper and colleagues observed that future research is needed to determine if the act of daily self-weighing without graphical feedback would be effective at maintaining weight over the holiday season.Susan Yanovski, MD, an obesity researcher at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases who was not involved in the study, added that “replication in larger studies with more diverse participants would help to determine the generalizability of this approach for weight gain prevention.””Vacations and holidays are probably the two times of year people are most susceptible to weight gain in a very short period of time,” Cooper concluded. “The holidays can actually have a big impact on someone’s long-term health.”Obesity–defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that can pose a risk to health–is a major risk factor for more than 200 comorbid conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and cancer. Approximately 1.2 billion people worldwide have obesity, according to TOS officials.Source: The Obesity Society Maybe they exercise a little bit more the next day (after seeing a weight increase) or they watch what they are eating more carefully.

Topical cream found to be effective in reversing the effects of vitiligo

first_imgReviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)Jun 17 2019A nationwide phase II clinical trial, coordinated out of Tufts Medical Center in Boston, has found that a topical cream was extremely effective in reversing the effects of vitiligo, a relatively common autoimmune disease that causes loss of skin pigmentation.Topical application of the medicated cream, ruxolitinib, which is currently used as an oral treatment for certain blood disorders, resulted in substantial improvement of facial vitiligo symptoms in nearly half of the trial’s participants. Results of the clinical trial were presented by David Rosmarin, MD, Dermatologist at Tufts Medical Center and Primary Investigator for the study, on Saturday, June 15, at the World Congress of Dermatology in Milan, Italy.There is no known cause of vitiligo, a disease in which the immune system attacks pigment cells in the body. Vitiligo may range from mild to severe and can be found anywhere on the body, although it typically affects exposed areas, such as the face and hands. While vitiligo is not evident at birth, about half of vitiligo patients contract the disease before age 20. Approximately 50 million people – one percent of the worldwide population – are affected by vitiligo, including musical artist Michael Jackson, actor John Hamm, model Winnie Harlow and comedian Steve Martin. Vitiligo affects all ethnic groups equally, but is more evident in ethnic minorities with darker skin. No FDA-approved re-pigmenting treatments for vitiligo currently exist. Related StoriesNew e-tattoo beats conventional methods at monitoring heart healthScientists develop accurate, wearable voice recognition deviceNew ‘virtual biopsy’ device developed to detect skin tumorsThe two-year study, the largest randomized controlled vitiligo study ever conducted, enrolled 157 patients at 30 sites across the United States. Participants received daily or twice daily topical application of either ruxolitinib or placebo to the area of skin affected by vitiligo. About half of the highest dose of ruxolitinib patients saw a statistically significant improvement of near 50 percent in their facial vitiligo, compared to three percent who saw this level of improvement in the placebo group. Side effects of topical application of ruxolitinib were mild and included redness and irritation at the application site and mild acne.”Topical ruxolitinib has the potential to change the way vitiligo is treated. Not only is it effective at repigmenting the skin, but it has an excellent safety profile,” said Dr. Rosmarin. “We also are optimistic that many vitiligo patients may see an even better response with continuous ruxolitinib usage over an extended period of time, combined with phototherapy and sunlight exposure. Our hope is that this treatment ultimately will be a game-changer for the millions of people worldwide affected by vitiligo.” Source:Tufts Medical Center Unfortunately, there is often a social stigma associated with vitiligo, and it can take a significant psychosocial toll on patients. Current treatments such as phototherapy, topical corticosteroids, and calcineurin inhibitors have limited efficacy, and phototherapy treatment can be a burden for patients to have to use a light box two or three times per week.”David Rosmarin, MDlast_img read more

Global airport capacity crisis amid passenger boom IATA

first_imgGovernments need to urgently tackle a capacity crisis facing airports as demand for international travel grows, but they should be cautious about private sector involvement, airline industry group IATA warned Monday. There is a global airport capacity crisis, airline industry group IATA has warned IATA chief warns about rising cost of airport expansion Citation: Global airport capacity crisis amid passenger boom: IATA (2018, June 4) retrieved 18 July 2019 from With passenger levels projected to nearly double to 7.8 billion by 2036, infrastructure such as airports and air traffic control systems were not keeping pace, the International Air Transport Association said.Major airports have sought to address the crisis by managing slots—giving airlines specific operating rights at particular times.But there was still a need for new airports, IATA chief Alexandre de Juniac said at the body’s annual meeting in Sydney.”We are in a capacity crisis. And we don’t see the required airport infrastructure investment to solve it,” he said, adding that cash-strapped governments were increasingly turning to private firms to increase airport capacity.But he cautioned against privatised airports, warning that they have “not lived up to airline expectations” with many carriers having “far too many bitter experiences”.”Travellers also sense the problem. According to (global rating system) Skytrax, five of the top six traveller-preferred airports are public,” he said.”Privatised airports are definitely more expensive. But there is little difference in efficiency or investment levels compared to airports in public hands.”IATA Monday projected global air passenger traffic to rise by 6.5 percent this year to 4.36 billion, after increases of 7.0 and 7.3 percent in 2016 and 2017 respectively.The body, which represents 280 airlines, will consider a resolution on the privatisation of airport infrastructure on Tuesday that calls on governments to factor in long-term economic and social benefits when commissioning new terminals.The resolution will also call for better regulation governing privatised airports and protecting consumer interests.center_img This document is subject to copyright.

Fivehundred fifty million barrels of oil discovered off Ghana coast

The oil and gas operator said exploratory drilling indicated an “estimated 450-550 million barrels of oil equivalent (mmboe)” in the Pecan field, 166 kilometres (100 miles) off Takaradi.Further exploration could increase total volumes to 600-1,000 mmboe, the company said in a statement.Ghana’s government said the announcement was “good news” that could bring “a new outlook to the economy” and alternative funding for social projects in the future.Aker Energy began operating the Pecan field last year. It holds a 50 percent stake. Others include Russian energy firm Lukoil and the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation.Ghana first discovered oil in 2007 and became a producer in 2010, helping to speed up the rate of economic growth. It is believed to have five to seven billion barrels in reserves.The resolution of a long-standing maritime boundary dispute between Ghana and neighbouring Ivory Coast sparked predictions the country would see an oil boom.President Nana Akufo-Addo said the favourable ruling opened up “possibilities of development, progress and prosperity”, which would help boost funding for schools, hospitals and roads.center_img Citation: Five-hundred fifty million barrels of oil discovered off Ghana coast (2019, January 10) retrieved 17 July 2019 from © 2019 AFP This document is subject to copyright.

Movies are as popular as ever but rising ticket prices may be

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. This article is republished from The Conversation under a Creative Commons license. Read the original article. Why does this matter? At a time when few places offer everyone in society the opportunity to access a shared human experience – to laugh and cry at the same things in the same shared space – it is of paramount importance that cinema remains affordable to all.Social significanceIt is not a matter of cultural significance but of social significance. When Steven Spielberg says that “there’s nothing like going to a big dark theatre with people you’ve never met before and having the experience wash over you”, he’s not making an argument about the superior artistic stature of cinema – to prioritise one art form over another is absurd. Filmmakers like Spielberg remind us that going to the cinema has, over the course of the past century, become a right of everybody to participate in the cultural life of the nation.Historically, cinema achieved this crucial role as a cultural and social meeting-point by being affordable to all – ensuring that the most diverse cross-section of the population could afford to go to the cinema regularly. In this sense, it is fundamentally different to television or video games, because going to the cinema is a cultural practice that requires a social contract between the audience, the exhibitors and the filmmakers – where you agree to leave the house, sit in a dark theatre and share the film experience with people you don’t know.This may sound strange, but seeing a movie and going to the cinema are two different things. Going to the cinema requires a level of commitment that is fundamentally different to choosing to sit down and watch television or play with a games console at home.It’s not about the artistic quality of the medium – but of democratic participation and the consequences of increasing levels of division in society. At its core, film is proven to have a shared emotional, artistic experience – not just with friends, but with strangers and, crucially, in a public space which, at least for those two hours, belongs to everyone.For the manyWhile there is no easy fix to this issue, sliding price scales based on income and other related factors, to name one particularly intriguing way of rethinking prices that has already proved to be successful where trialled, may provide a useful starting point for the conversation.This is a tale with no obvious villain – cinema owners invest huge amounts of money every year in upgrades while studios spend many millions making the movies they believe people want to see. For this story to have a happy ending it is therefore crucial to ensure that the conversation does not get stuck in the kind of simplifications (film versus Netflix, distributors versus audiences) that may make for good headlines but mask the real risks we all run if cinema should become a pastime for the few.So ensuring access to the cinema experience for everyone should be part of the political and social conversation – not just an issue of preference. Streaming is not the enemy in this picture, but allowing significant cross-sections of the cinema-going population to be cut off from the most popular form of cultural engagement, most definitely is. Explore further Citation: Movies are as popular as ever, but rising ticket prices may be shutting many people out of the cinema (2019, May 9) retrieved 17 July 2019 from Against increasingly tougher odds, cinema-going remains the most popular form of cultural participation and public social engagement – and it is the same story pretty much wherever you look around the world.Behind this success story, though, lies a serious threat. Despite billions of tickets sold every year worldwide and box office revenue steadily increasing since the 1970s (reaching over US$40 billion in 2018) these numbers mask a gradual narrowing of the socioeconomic spectrum of cinema-going audiences.If the trend of increasing ticket prices and the business models that underpin this increase continue, this staple form of public participation and communal engagement will lose its social function. Rising ticket prices will effectively exclude many of those for whom cinema was intended in the first place, resulting in its complete gentrification.Rising pricesAs part of my research, I calculated the relative cost of movie tickets over the years and compared that with wages. It paints a bleak picture. Adjusted for inflation to give a contemporary perspective, attending a movie theatre in 1938 in the US (the year the Fair Labor Standards Act established the federal minimum hourly wage) cost the equivalent of US$4.14 (calculated by adjusting the original ticket price to January 2019 prices. That meant that for every hour worked at minimum wage – then set at US$5.39 – film-goers would invest roughly 75% of one hour’s work. In 2018, going to the cinema cost US$9.11 – so a minimum wage worker would need to invest 125% of their hourly wage to buy a cinema ticket. US minimum hourly wage has been stuck at US$7.25 since 2009.In the UK, the situation is only marginally better. Cinema prices average £7.22 (US$9.40) against a minimum wage set at £7.83 (US$10.20) for over-25s – but dropping rapidly for those below that age to as low as £5.90 (US$7.70) for 18- to 20-year-olds. The Ultimate Home Cinematic 21:9 Viewing Experience Provided by The Conversation The UK cinema association announced late in 2018 that movie admissions were on course to hit 176m for the year, 6m more than in 2017 and the highest since the 1970s when blockbusters such as Star Wars and Jaws had people queuing round the block.

Criminal cybersquatters

first_imgCredit: CC0 Public Domain Cybersquatting was rife in the early days of the World Web of the 1990s. An individual would register a domain name that was perhaps associated with an organisation or company and even a trademarked term. The cybersquatter might then use the domain for their own purposes whatever they might be or endeavour to sell the domain to the organisation. At first, it was unclear whether cybersquatting was illegal. Laws were tightened, domain registrars would take a dim view of such activity and commonly the domain would be handed over to what would appear to be the more legitimate owner. However, there are blurred lines when it comes to generic terms rather than company names or trademarks.

Writing in the International Journal of Social Computing and Cyber-Physical Systems, a team from India suggests that cybersquatting, rather than being an artefact of an immature Web of a quarter of a century ago, is still rife and exploitative. The team offers many examples of cybersquatting and highlights how the activity is detrimental to the growth of the internet and society as a whole.There may well be instances where cybersquatting was intentional.

Lowcost moon mission puts India among lunar pioneers

Metro News 09 Jul 2019 Space party to celebrate Apollo 11 moon mission Related News India 13 Jun 2019 India unveils spacecraft for second moon mission Related Newscenter_img World 11 Jul 2019 NASA shake up in new race to the moon SRIHARIKOTA, India (AFP): India will step up the international space race on Monday (July 15) when it launches a low-cost mission to become only the fourth country to land a probe on the moon.Just five days before the 50th anniversary of man’s first lunar landing, Chandrayaan-2 – or Moon Chariot 2 – will blast off from a tropical island off Andhra Pradesh state after a decade-long build-up.The mission will also highlight how far space travel has advanced since Neil Armstrong’s giant leap for mankind during the Apollo 11 mission.India has spent about US$140 million (S$190 million) to get Chandrayaan-2 ready for the 384,400 kilometres trip from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre to the scheduled landing on the lunar South Pole on Sept 6. AdChoices广告The United States spent about US$25 billion – the equivalent of more than US$100 billion in current prices – on 15 Apollo missions, including the six that put Armstrong and other astronauts on the moon.China landed its Chang’e 4 lunar craft in January, and spent US$8.4 billion on its entire space programme in 2017, according to international Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development figures.And Russia – the first country to land an unmanned moon rocket in 1966 – spent more than US$20 billion at today’s values on lunar missions in the 1960s and 70s.SPICED-UP SPACE RACEAlmost the entire Chandrayaan-2’s orbiter, lander and rover have been designed and made in India.India will use its most powerful rocket launcher, GSLV Mk III, to carry the 2.4 tonne orbiter, which has a mission life of about a year.The spacecraft will carry the 1.4 tonne lander Vikram – which in turn will take the 27-kilogramme rover Pragyan – to a high plain between two craters on the lunar South Pole.Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) chief K. Sivan said Vikram’s 15-minute final descent “will be the most terrifying moments as we have never undertaken such a complex mission”.The solar-powered rover can travel up to 500 metres and is expected to work for one lunar day, the equivalent of 14 Earth days.Sivan said the probe will be looking for signs of water and “a fossil record of the early solar system”.Despite the relatively small budget, the mission does raise questions about how funds are allocated when the country is still battling hunger and poverty.But national pride is at stake: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has vowed to send a manned mission into orbit by 2022.Most experts say the geo-strategic stakes are small – but that India’s low-cost model could win commercial satellite and orbiting deals.”The fundamental question that we should ask ourselves in this context is not whether India should undertake such ambitious space ventures, but whether India can afford to ignore it,” said K. Kasturirangan, a former ISRO chief.India has to aim to be a leader in space, he added.Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan, head of space policy at the Observer Research Foundation, a New Delhi think tank, said Chandrayaan-2 will enhance the nation’s reputation “at a time when the global and particularly, the Asian space programmes are becoming increasingly competitive”.Amitabha Ghosh, a scientist for NASA’s Rover mission to Mars, said the benefits of Chandrayaan-2 are huge, compared to its cost.”A spacecraft mission of the complexity of Chandrayaan-2 conveys a message that India is capable of delivering on difficult technology development endeavours,” said Ghosh.However, some experts say anyone looking for a cheap ticket to space should think of the comfort on low-cost plane rides closer to Earth.Scott Hubbard, a former top NASA researcher now with Stanford University, examined the cost-effectiveness of the Indian Mars orbiter against the American Maven mission.Although both launched in 2013, Maven is estimated to have cost 10 times more, but India’s Mangalyaan was only designed to last about a year.”The US mission was required to last two years. That’s a big difference in cost,” said Hubbard. And Mangalyaan’s payload was 15 kg, while Maven could carry 65 kg with more sophisticated instruments.”So you get what you pay for,” concluded Hubbard. – AFP {{category}} {{time}} {{title}}last_img read more

The meeting is to find a way to iron out disagreements between the two countries. The Indian side is likely to reiterate the same set of concerns as the key issue remains unresolved — the construction of a causeway by Pakistan.While India is making a bridge for the pilgrims, the Pakistani side is constructing a “causeway”, which has been a persistent bone of contention between India and Pakistan on the Kartarpur corridor issue.India is of the view that not building a bridge would lead to flooding of the Indian areas during monsoon when the Ravi river overflows.”India has disagreed on the construction of a causeway. Causeways are not considered good engineering. India has been covering the Indian side of 68 km bund while the Pakistani side has a vast 250 km bund. Flooding in monsoon is a concern,” a government source said.The Indian team has suggested the use of “service road” by pilgrims till the time the bridge is not built by Pakistan.Kartarpur corridor structure on Indian side to be completed by October 31: SourcesA day after the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) sought to dismiss “misconceptions” that India has been slow in completing its side of the Kartarpur corridor, government sources have claimed that the construction on the Indian will be completed by October 31.The sources also said that the Indian government expects completion of the Kartarpur corridor on both the sides before the 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev. Speaking to news agency ANI, a government source said, “Construction of the Kartarpur corridor on the Indian side will be completed by October 31. Sixty per cent is done. The government is keen that the Kartarpur corridor is completed on both the sides by the 550th anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev ji. India is looking forward to it with high expectation.”The movement of the Kartarpur corridor pilgrims is expected to be discussed in the meeting. Discussions on permits or visa-free access to all the pilgrims, fees and journey time of the pilgrims are also expected during the Kartarpur corridor talks.”India is creating an all-weather facility to cater to 10,000 pilgrims on special occasions and 5,000 pilgrims daily,” the source said, adding, “India will use high tech surveillance system and put a robust security system in place. That is not negotiable.”However, Pakistan wants to limit the number of pilgrims to 750 a day. Sources say that despite three technical meetings, the Pakistani side has not responded positively.Will reiterate concern regarding Khalistani terrorist Gopal Singh Chawla: SourcesThe government sources have said the Indian side will reiterate their concern regarding the Khalistani terrorist, Gopal Singh Chawla. Gopal Singh Chwala is linked to Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee and works in the capacity of its general secretary.
