letting their feelings be known (Source: AP) Top News Manny Pacquiao had already left town without saying much even as criticism of the referee in the WBO welterweight world title fight and the judges who awarded a unanimous points decision to a previously almost anonymous Jeff Horn was still pouring in on social media The 29-year-old Horn a former schoolteacher who was given almost no hope of beating the 11-time world champion was feted by fans and politicians in his hometown on Monday and didn’t care too much about criticism _ which started in a TV interview as soon as he left the ring on Sunday after the Battle of Brisbane “There will always be a backlash where people say I got lucky or whatever There will always be the naysayers saying I didn’t win the fight but I felt like I won the fight” Horn now unbeaten in his 18 fights since turning professional in 2013 said as he basked in the victory on Monday “Everyone has a right to their opinion I’m sure I’ve (gained) a lot more fans over there than I’ve lost” Pacquiao skipped the formal post-fight news conference his camp saying he needed to get seven stitches in each of the cuts on the top of his head and also declined other interviews in the dressing room Some critics described the result as a robbery and questioned the integrity of the sport Immediately after the fight Pacquiao said he had to respect the decision and noted that he had a clause for a rematch but he later told a Philippines news channel that he’d been confident he’d won the fight His trainers were critical of the referee for not doing more to stop or penalize head clashes and neck holds And they highlighted statistics that showed Pacquiao threw twice as many punches In an interview with ABS-CBN News Channel Pacquiao thanked some high-profile supporters for letting their feelings be known “Thank you for the support and for also believing that I won the fight” he said in the TV interview “I’m praying that it will not affect or ruin the boxing industry” Reports emerged that a government department in the Philippines wanted the WBO to launch an inquiry into the outcome The WBO had released the judge’s scores on Sunday night All three judges awarded it to Horn with American Waleska Roldan’s 117-111 score attracting most of the criticism US judge Chris Flores and Ramon Cerdan of Argentina each scored it much closer at 115-113 Top Rank promotor Bob Arum said it was a “close fight It could have gone either way” “A couple of close rounds but you can’t argue with the result” he said after the fight “I scored a lot of the early rounds for Jeff Then I had Manny coming back in the middle The 12th round Jeff really won If you give Manny the 11th you have it a draw You give Jeff the 11th it’s 7-5” The 38-year-old Pacquiao had a chance to knock Horn out in the 9th with the Aussie on the ropes and in big trouble in front of the 51052 fans at Suncorp Stadium but couldn’t complete the job His own handlers agreed that had a bearing on the fight _ saying Pacquiao shouldn’t have left it up to the judges As he mingled with fans on Monday his right eye still closed Horn said he hadn’t paid a lot of attention to the criticism “but I’ve seen my Facebook and that’s gone gangbusters at the moment” “Manny Pacquiao is an absolute warrior a legend of the sport He might have come underdone in this fight I don’t know” Horn said “I guess if we have a rematch and he put his all in he might come in better I don’t know” One thing the fight has done is ensure Horn will have a bigger profile before his next fight whether that be a rematch with Pacquiao _ now 59-7-2 and with three losses in his last eight fights _ or not Pacquiao was back in the Philippines later Monday and had a military guard of honor to welcome him back to General Santos A unanimous points decision wasn’t what anyone had been expecting “It was I guess the Manny Show I can remember watching programs saying the Manny Pacquiao fight in Brisbane _ my name wasn’t normally mentioned” Horn said “But now hopefully I’m a bit more recognized and I’ve established myself in the boxing community a bit more” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express

Muslims” Against the backdrop of the growing attraction among educated Muslim youth in the West for extremist Islam the article pits an example from India: “…a group of Muslims in [the] tiny but economically vibrant town of Lonand… has shown the real character of Indian Muslims They have completely shattered the fundamentalist version of Wahabi Islam propagated by the likes of [the] Islamic State and [the] Taliban…” Pointing out that Maharashtra has almost a thousand-year-old Bhakti tradition the editorial says that a day before Eid the town’s Muslims held a meeting and decided to postpone Eid celebrations as a goodwill gesture: “As animal slaughtering would not have gone down well with the pilgrimage this move was remarkable The pilgrims also reciprocated by performing special programmes to appreciate the solidarity shown by local Muslims” It adds: “When the IS tendencies are prevailing… and gaining maximum media attention this small act of common Indian Muslims shows that the onus of restricting [the] monolithic caliphate of Wahabi Islam is on Bharatiya Islam It is the Indian way of respect and acceptance and not just tolerance…” Farmer Subsidy An article in the Organiser says the Centre is planning to implement a scheme for providing subsidy to farmers to help them pay premiums on crop insurance Pointing out that agriculture has become loss-making because of low prices which are deliberately kept depressed the article says crop insurance will protect farmers from such an eventuality: “The insurance company will pay compensation for the loss of crop and the farmer would be able to repay the loan” The article by Bharat Jhunjhunwala says “I expect [the] Modi government to increase this to say 20 or 30 per cent Let us say the government is kind and provides a hefty 50 per cent subsidy The farmer would then get a relief of Rs 750 on a crop I am certain this will still not attract the farmer because premium constitutes only a small fraction of the cost of insurance [A] much bigger expense is incurred in navigating through the insurance bureaucracy” The author says making farmers bankrupt was a well-planned strategy of the Congress government The article adds: “[The] danger in the present proposal is that the farmer may wind up getting tied in yet stronger chains The farmer may get ensnarled in the web of insurance bureaucracy and spend his time and energy running after insurance companies instead of cultivating his lands” Bahubali Apart from making money what can a movie do It can convey messages to the people make a family sit

The country has been on edge since Monday when Constantino Chiwenga Commander of Zimbabwe Defence Forces said he was prepared to “step in” to end a purge of supporters of a sacked vice president The unprecedented statement represents an escalation of a rumbling political struggle over who will succeed Mugabe 93 who has been in power since the country gained independence from Britain in 1980 Mugabe chaired a weekly cabinet meeting in the capital on Tuesday Afterwards the ruling party ZANU-PF said it stood by the “primacy of politics over the gun” It said Chiwenga’s statement suggests “treasonable conduct . meant to incite insurrection” Mugabe fired Vice President Emerson Mnangagwa last week The veteran of the country’s 1970s liberation war was popular with the military and had been seen as a likely successor to Mugabe The army views his removal as part of a purge of independence-era figures to pave the way for Mugabe to hand power to his wife Grace Mugabe A Reuters witness

already sold in drugstores as a topical anti-wrinkle cream” said Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) investigator Kevan Shokat of the University of CaliforniaSan Francisco “So it’s a drug we know has been in people and is safe” Shokat said Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disease that causes the death of neurons in the brain Initiallythe disease affects one’s movement and causes tremorsdifficulty walkingand slurred speech Later stages of the disease can cause dementia and broader health problems In 2004researchers studying an Italian family with a high prevalence of early-onset Parkinson’s disease discovered mutations in a protein called PINK1 associated with the inherited form of the disease Since thenstudies have shown that PINK1 normally wedges into the membrane of damaged mitochondria inside cells that causes another proteinParkinto be recruited to the mitochondriawhich are organelles responsible for energy generation Neurons require high levels of energy productiontherefore when mitochondrial damage occursit can lead to neuronal death Howeverwhen Parkin is present on damaged mitochondriastudding the mitochondrial surfacethe cell is able to survive the damage In people who inherit mutations in PINK1howeverParkin is never recruited to the organellesleading to more frequent neuronal death than usual Shokat and his colleagues wanted to develop a way to turn on or crank up PINK1 activitytherefore preventing an excess of cell deathin those with inherited Parkinson’s disease Researchers began investigating how PINK1 binds to ATPthe energy molecule that normally turns it on In one testinstead of adding ATP to the enzymesthey added different ATP analoguesversions of ATP with altered chemical groups that slightly change its shape Scientists typically must engineer new versions of proteins to be able to accept these analogssince they don’t fit into the typical ATP binding site Howeverone of the analogs – kinetin triphosphateor KTP – turned on the activity of not only normal PINK1but also the mutated versionwhich doesn’t bind ATP Adding the precursor of KTPkinetinto cells both those with PINK1 mutations and those with normal
