by between 41 and 67 per cent (Source: PTI) Top News Heading the football repeatedly during a match could cause significant memory problems in players for up to a day scientists have found Researchers asked a group of football players to head a ball 20 times fired from a machine designed to simulate the pace and power of a corner kick They tested the players’ brain function and memory before and after the experiment After a single session of heading they found that memory test performance fell by between 41 and 67 per cent Watch what else is making news “Using a drill most amateur and professional teams would be familiar with we found there was in fact increased inhibition in the brain immediately after heading and that performance on memory tests was reduced significantly” said Magdalena Ietswaart from the University of Stirling in the UK “Although the changes were temporary we believe they are significant to brain health particularly if they happen over and over again as they do in football heading” Ietswaart was quoted as saying by ‘The Telegraph’ It is unclear whether the changes to memory would still remain temporary after repeated exposure to heading the ball over a long period of time researchers said Concussions suffered in sport have been linked to neurodegenerative disease and chronic traumatic encephalopathy a progressive degenerative disease of the brain they said The results were published in the journal EBioMedicine For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe percentage of votes cast in the BMC polls on Tuesday indicates that there may not be any drastic change in the leadership of the civic body though there is a strong possibility of a fragmented mandate Considering the awareness campaign launched by the Maharashtraelection commission as well as other agencies to motivate voters in Mumbai to come out and cast their vote failed to mobilise the citizens The major chunk of voters who turned up to cast their votes continued to be the usual voters from slums chawls and working class localities These voters are in constant need of corporators to solve their day-to-day problems —many connected with the BMC These include water supply garbage clearance encroachments hawkers health facilities markets community halls and schools Besides voters in such localities have a bonding with local corporators in celebrating festivals or organising games or cultural activities Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation Image courtesy: Wikimedia Commons In sharp contrast voters living in higher middle class localities residential townships and skyscrapers are the ones who usually refrain from casting their votes as they neither face the problems faced by slum or chawl dwellers and do not feel the need for the local corporator Over the past couple of civic elections in Mumbai there have been attempts from some quarters to field candidates who are educated and would change the way the city is governed but it has not caught up The rich and the educated have largely remained away from contesting or voting in civic politics The mandate is likely to be fragmented with no party getting a clear majority The Shiv Sena is likely to emerge as the single largest party with no clear majority though it may improve its previous tally of 75 seats in the house of 227 The acrimony between the Sena and the ruling BJP during the poll campaign is likely to work to the advantage of the Sena as it polarised its ranks and file While the Sena with its network of workers as well as sitting corporators and legislators with known faces among local people had an edge over the BJP the latter continued to sway Sena votes in its favour by projecting the faces of chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and Prime Minister Narendra Modiaccompanied with a picture of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj in the background on its hoardings The BJP appeared to be still banking on the Modi wave of 2014 in a highly-localised election despite the tactical propaganda by the Sena against demonetisation Moreover only the chief minister appeared to be the star campaigner with no other known face teaming up with him to seek votes Considering that the BJP had won just 31 seats in the last BMC polls it is unlikely that its tally will skyrocket to secure a clear majority or even emerge as the single-largest party in a fractured mandate The opposition parties which were largely relegated in the background during the election campaign with even a large section of media especially Marathi TV channels focusing only on the allegations and counter-allegations flying thick and high between Sena and BJP leaders will have an uphill task in maintain their previous tally in the BMC Other parties like the MIM the Samajwadi Party and the MNS will have to struggle to go beyond the double digit figure In a fragmented House the mainstream opposition parties and smaller parties may attempt to play the kingmaker/s but considering that the Sena and the BJP are Hindutva partners who have kept their alliance in the state and central governments intact amid their acrimony a post-poll saffron alliance is possible unless the Sena chooses to align with the opposition parties with the BJP sitting in the opposition (which will also serve the saffron purpose and the agenda of a Congress-mukt Bharat) New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday granted the last opportunity to the Maharashtra government to remove illegal encroachments on 908 square metre area on the approach road and near the historic Haji Ali Dargah shrine in south Mumbai A bench comprising Chief Justice JS Khehar and Justice DY Chandrachud granted two weeks to the concerned authorities to remove these encroachments and asked the deputy collector to ensure that its order is complied with The direction came after the Haji Ali Dargah trust which had earlier volunteered to remove the encroachments expressed inability in completing the task The court made it clear to the deputy collector of Colaba zone of south Mumbai that "serious consequences" would follow if its order for removing encroachments is not complied within two weeks from Monday File image of Haji Ali Dargah CNN-News18 On 9 May the apex court had lauded the efforts of the Dargah Trust in its attempts to remove encroachments The Haji Ali Dargah was constructed in 1431 in the memory of a wealthy Muslim merchant Sayyed Peer Haji Ali Shah Bukhari who gave up all his possessions before making a pilgrimage to Mecca The Trust had on 13 April relented to the tough stand taken by the apex court against large-scale encroachments around the historic Mumbai mosque and volunteered to remove them by May eight The offer to remove and demolish the encroachments had come after the apex court made it clear that only the mosque located on an area of around 171 sq meter since 1931 would remain protected while the rest of the area measuring 908 sq meter has to be cleared of squatters Appreciating the offer the bench had allowed the trust to complete the task on or before 8 May subject to the satisfaction of two authorities indicated in 10 February order of the Bombay High Court The High Court had ordered the formation of a joint task force comprising the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai and the Collector to remove the illegal encroachments on the approach road leading to the Haji Ali Dargah The High Court was hearing a petition filed by Sahayak a socio-legal and educational forum seeking immediate removal of the encroachments on the approach road to the dargah which is located on the sea The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai was of the view that the land on the approach road to Haji Ali fell in the Collector’s jurisdiction and therefore the Collector should remove the encroachments Jaipur: The textile industry is growing exponentially in the country with Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) having tripled in three years Union Minister Smriti Irani said

producer Diplo listeners will have to pay Rs 99 as it has been put behind a paywall for 24 hours across Thursday and Friday Related News In India anything “free” works best but Sony Music India decided to take a bold step by asking listeners to pay for a limited time to listen to the song ‘Phurrr’ featuring superstar Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma Some in the industry say it is too much to expect any immediate change in attitudes but hope people support the move that is aimed at killing piracy To be among the first to listen to ‘Phurrr’ by composer Pritam and American DJ-record producer Diplo listeners will have to pay Rs 99 as it has been put behind a paywall for 24 hours across Thursday and Friday “We had to do it with a song that people were anticipating Most people anticipate a movie a film’s opening date but they don’t know when the next song is coming out and how it’s going to be Only when it releases do they decide whether they like it or not There is very little build-up to the release of Bollywood songs” Shridhar Subramaniam President Sony Music Entertainment – India and Middle East told IANS But in the case of Phurrr because of the Diplo collaboration and the fact that the music of the film “Jab Harry Met Sejal” is gaining momentum a lot of Indians know that the song is coming And that is why Subramaniam said the Bollywood track was selected for the paywall experiment “In the West for example take Taylor Swift Her music was always behind a paywall That happened with Pink Floyd The Beatles and some other legendary artistes who feel that consumers need to pay and therefore unless they pay they shouldn’t be listening to their music “Some of the artistes feel that way because they don’t make enough money from recording it’s only from performances So you can see an explosion in live shows but not so much in recording Indie music bands will perform and not really record because of this particular imbalance” he said The reason why 24 hours was chosen was because “it’s a first so you don’t want to give a shock to people You must accept that India is still a heavily pirated market People will find a way to get it for free some way or the other” Sony Music India are appealing to novelty seekers For this to work out the support of audio streaming platforms such as Saavn Gaana and Hungama are needed “Right now there are close to 50 million users monthly across all these music services Out of 50 million only 400000 people pay — which is less than one per cent There is a huge disparity; in rest of the world 40-50 per cent of people are actually paying customers” “The creative industry only thrives if we have a well-balanced consumer ecosystem Am not saying free is ever going to go away but the people willing to pay should get benefits like getting to hear the song first without ads take it offline share it with friends and high quality It’s not an outrageous expensive programme” said Subramaniam Prashan Agarwal Chief Operating Officer Gaana said given that this song is a huge collaboration with Diplo this looked like the right time to experiment “India is a unique market and thus it would not be right to reference how this strategy might or might not have worked in other markets This is a limited period experiment thus we do not foresee any effect on streams” he added Mandar Thakur Chief Operating Officer Times Music is also against the concept of “giving away stuff for free” “That by itself is a wrong business model because beyond a certain point nobody will sustain” he said “The idea is to be able to create sustainable business models and I think this is the first of the steps from Sony You will pretty much see everybody in the industry doing it It’s a large industry effort” Popular singer Kailash Kher also supports the move but cautions against expectation of immediate change in attitudes given the mentality of people who consume music “The initiative is nice and I hope it works Piracy is a deep-rooted problem in our country but you should not expect a miraculous change” he said “We have a habit of free things and when you get involved in something like piracy it gives a kick Most music consumers are aged between 14 and 30 They are the direct customers and to do wrong things like piracy excites them So it will be a challenge” he added For all the latest
