surgeon general warned in a report released Tuesday that cites an alarming 200 percent jump in deadly melanoma cases since 1973 The report blames a generation of sun worshipping for the $8 billion spent to treat all forms of skin cancer each year Rear Adm Boris Lushniak said state and local officials need to do more to help people cover up such as providing more shade at parks and sporting events Schools should encourage kids to wear hats and sunscreen and schedule outdoor activities when the sun is low in the sky And colleges and universities should eliminate indoor tanning beds on campus much as they would prohibit tobacco use he added “We need more states and institutions on board with these policies that discourage or restrict indoor tanning by our youth” Lushniak said “Tanned skin is damaged skin” The surgeon general’s “call to action” plan is part of a broader push this year by government officials and public health advocates to raise awareness on what they say has become a major public health problem While other cancers such as lung cancer are decreasing skin cancer is rising rapidly According to the Department of Health and Human Services 5 million people are treated for skin cancer each year And the number of Americans with skin cancer in the past three decades eclipse the number of all other cancers combined Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer with 9000 people dying each year from the mostly preventable disease Stacey Escalante blames years of sunbathing with baby oil and using indoor tanning beds for her melanoma diagnosis in 2005 The mother of two was a 34-year-old television reporter training for a marathon when she found a small red growth the size of a pencil eraser on her lower back By the time she saw a doctor the cancer had traveled to her lymph node requiring two surgeries that left an 8-inch scar She then spent two years on an experimental drug Escalante said she realizes now that she was lucky to survive and was foolish to think she was immune to skin cancer because her father was Hispanic and she tanned well Now an advocate for early detection Escalante is pushing for state legislation prohibiting minors from using indoor tanning beds The Melanoma Research Foundation says exposure to tanning beds before age 30 increases a person’s risk of developing melanoma by 75 percent “If only I had first gone to the doctor when I first saw that spot instead of ignoring it I would have saved my family and myself … the emotional physical and financial burden of skin cancer” she said “It was absolutely overwhelming” Howard Koh assistant secretary for health for the Department of Health and Human Services said skin cancer prevention needs to become a bigger part of daily American life “We need to change the social norm with respect to tanning and shatter the myth that tanned skin is somehow a sign of health” Koh said Doctors recommend doing regular skin checks for new moles and seeing a doctor if any change in size shape or color Doctors also recommend applying at least 1 ounce of sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more to exposed skin and reapplying every two hours more if swimming or sweating Children in particular should be protected because bad sunburns in childhood are thought to greatly increase risk later in life For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More

Sena: Political Matronage in urbanising India Author- Tarini Bedi Publication: Aleph (originally published by State University of New York Press) Pages- 291 Price- Rs 699 Tarini Bedi’s book The Dashing Ladies of Shiv Sena is based on 10 years of fieldwork in Mumbai (and partly also in Pune and Nashik) — between 2003 and 2013 It contains four somewhat intersecting narratives The narrative that appears only as a faint backdrop is the politics of the Shiv Sena The narrative of politics in the urban space is more prominent but not fully teased out Third the book converses with existing research on women actors of various right-wing or Hindutva organisations But most centrally the core narrative of the book is about self-made women actors who become (or aspire to become) local political bosses Bedi argues that long and sustained political careers chosen by middle-aged women passionate about the public sphere help them mediate in the functioning of the local state and shape their capacities as political entrepreneurs The agency manifest in local women actors and their staying capacity as important players in a male-dominated world of power prompt the author to argue that their capabilities may be designated as “matronage” Richly punctuated with theoretical nuance and situated in a wide range of scholarly works this book is written in a reader-friendly style The author marshals evidence from her fieldwork to suggest that many assumptions and theoretical frames for studying women’s political activism require revisiting The book shows how political enterprise by Sena women critically depends on three pivots One the women actors whom we encounter in the book are keen about creating a “dashing” persona This persona is embedded in vocabularies in street action and occasionally in participation in the rough and tumble of vigilante violence One could argue that these are all traits of Shiv Sena politics However as the book seeks to show these are perhaps much more crucial weapons for women — they have to be dashing daring and fearsome More than men they must curse shout slap and above all assert themselves Two there is another key element that the author unravels very competently It is about being visible All her informants are acutely aware of the necessity to be visible and audible (they must speak loudly) in the male-dominated world of politics Again visibility is a common feature of public activism Men and women alike are dependent on visibility But whereas men acquire visibility through banners and posters for women that route is not easily accessible They have to be visible to party colleagues and the party leadership; but more than that they have to be visible to the public through their constant presence as one of the people and yet someone different from them Being dashing and visible however is circumscribed by a larger cultural and familial milieu The author very effectively brings out the fact that both the “dashing” quality and the visibility of women constitute a transgression of traditional norms And yet there are limits to these transgressions While many feminists would want women to be more liberated than Bedi’s informants the author evolves a more realistic frame for situating the politics of “transgressions-within-limits” engaged in by women activists That is the third pivot of their politics — adjustment From the point of view of developing a feminist understanding of local-level women actors the chapter on ‘Politics and the Relations of Domesticity’ is most crucial It does not presuppose what it means to be an independent woman; instead it traces through the life and approach of women Shiv Sainiks how transgressions are made and within what limits In this beautifully structured chapter the word “adjustment” comes up again and again as the recess through which the women actors wish to slip past the obligations of domesticity and also the boundaries within which they see themselves indulging in transgressions The women are not interested in liberation from family but they do realise instinctively and through native wisdom that family constrains their political persona Instead of rebelling against it they turn family into advantage — giving them respectability acceptance in the local community much-needed support and a launching pad In the process as the author shows with almost no comment on her part the idea of adjustment gets subverted — the family members too have to and do make adjustments This two-way process allows the emergence of the most unlikely political actors — lower middle class women activists Therefore the author is encouraged to theorise that a new set of political entrepreneurs are in the making — urban women who deftly engage in transactional politics just as skillfully as men Hence the idea of matronage—transactions engaged in by women actors in which fear and affection are combined; the public and the private are all confused; (mostly informal) political power is sought in exchange of the capacity to provide services to mostly poor and less privileged women and men in the locality While the book provides valuable insights for developing a framework of analysis of women in politics it does leave one with a few less convincing points First neither of these insights are specific to the Shiv Sena; they are equally applicable to most women political workers Two the coinage of matronage is not exactly convincing because building networks and transactional politics is common to both male and female actors Three while urban spaces make it possible for women to both transgress and become dashing it is not clear why villages do not provide the same opportunities Four in this extraordinarily touching depiction of women Shiv Sainiks the risk of the ethnographer getting far too involved in the stories of the informants is visible at places Ten long years of association has taken its toll on the author’s critical gaze Yet the Dashing Ladies of Shiv Sena makes an important intervention in the way we understand local political actors Like the naya neta Bedi’s book will change the way we understand the aspirations achievements and limitations of women political entrepreneurs Suhas Palshikar taught political science in the Savitribai Phule Pune University and is currently the chief editor of Studies

where and how you store your toothbrush Related News If you are using a ‘shared’ bathroom be careful about where and how you store your toothbrush Researchers have found that toothbrushes can serve as a vector for transmission of potentially pathogenic organisms The researchers found evidence of transmission of fecal coliform bacteria in communal bathrooms “The main concern is not with the presence of your own fecal matter on your toothbrush but rather when a toothbrush is contaminated with fecal matter from someone else which contains bacteria viruses or parasites that are not part of your normal flora” said Lauren Aber from Quinnipiac University in the US For the study all toothbrushes were collected from participants using communal bathrooms with an average of 94 occupants per bathroom in Quinnipiac University At least 60 percent of the toothbrushes were found to be contaminated with fecal coliforms “Using a toothbrush cover does not protect a toothbrush from bacterial growth but actually creates an environment where bacteria are better suited to grow by keeping the bristles moist and not allowing the head of the toothbrush to dry out between uses” Aber said “Better hygiene practices are recommended for students who share bathrooms both in the storage of their toothbrush but also in personal hygiene” Aber added Toothbrushes are a known source of contamination Scientists have suspected since the 1920s that the re-use of toothbrushes could be a possible source of infection in the oral cavity There are several potential sources of contamination of one’s toothbrush — toothbrushes stored open in the bathroom are especially vulnerable to contamination with material from the toilet or contamination from other occupants This research was presented at the

Related News Is it possible to avoid ageing skin Know how (Source: File Photo) Global efforts to find the secret to everlasting youth may be futile as scientists have mathematically proven that it is impossible to halt ageing in multicellular organisms like humans Current understanding of the evolution of ageing leaves opens the possibility that ageing could be stopped if only science could figure out a way to make a selection between organisms perfect One way to do that might be to use competition between cells to eliminate poorly functioning “sluggish” cells linked to ageing while keeping other cells intact However the solution is not that simple researchers said Two things happen to the body on a cellular level as it ages Nelson said One is that cells slow down and start to lose function like when your hair cells for example stop making pigment The other thing that happens is that some cells crank up their growth rate which can cause cancer cells to form As we get older we all tend at some point to develop cancer cells in the body even if they are not causing symptoms researchers said They found that even if natural selection were perfect ageing would still occur since cancer cells tend to cheat when cells compete “As you age most of your cells are ratcheting down and losing function and they stop growing as well” said Paul Nelson from the University of Arizona in the US “But some of your cells are growing like crazy What we show is that this forms a double bind – a catch-22” said Nelson lead author of the study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences “If you get rid of those poorly functioning sluggish cells then that allows cancer cells to proliferate and if you get rid of or slow down those cancer cells then that allows sluggish cells to accumulate” he said “So you’re stuck between allowing these sluggish cells to accumulate or allowing cancer cells to proliferate and if you do one you can’t do the other You can’t do them both at the same time” he added Although human mortality is an undisputed fact of life the researchers’ work presents a mathematical equation that expresses why ageing is an “incontrovertible truth” and “an intrinsic property of being multicellular” Nelson said For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Mustafa Plumber |
