One of the finest batsmen to have ever stepped onto the pitch for the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli has added another achievement to his resume. Ever since the Delhi born made his One-Day International debut against Sri Lanka in August 2008, he has played a total of 222 innings in which he has scored more than 11,000 runs. While the sheer number is extremely impressive in itself, what makes it more special is that fact that the 30-year-old has become the fastest cricketer to achieve this feat. the 222 innings are 54 fewer than the Indian master blaster, Sachin Tendulkar who had previously held the said record. #ViratKohli scores his 11,000th ODI run! He reaches the landmark in 54 fewer innings than anyone else ð pic.twitter.com/mebDOLJESs — Cricket World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 16, 2019 The rate at which the Indian skipper is scoring and the fact that he has been extremely consistent through the years and has only aged like fine wine, has not only established his No.1 rank on the ICC ODI batsmen but also provided him with the records of scoring the fastest 8,000, 9,000 and 10,000 runs as well. Kohli has been exceptional during the ICC World Cup 2019 matchup between India and Pakistan. While batting alongside Rohit Sharma, Kohli acted as the backup support for the Hitman who was having an innings of a lifetime. When Sharma got dismissed, the skipper quickly switched gears, taking the front seat and smacking boundaries here and there. Even though the game's paused due to rain, Kohli's innings might be as crucial as Rohit Sharma's if not more.

Fewer babies born in Singapore last year despite incentives
ADMIN posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogSINGAPORE: Fewer babies were born in Singapore last year, according to statistics announced on Wednesday, despite generous government incentives to boost fertility in the city-state. A total of 33,167 Singaporeans were born in 2016, compared to 33,725 in the previous year, the Singapore Department of Statistics said. However, the 2016 births remained above a 10-year average, it said. According to the World Bank, wealthy Singapore had the fourth-lowest fertility rate in the world in 2015. The government enhanced its incentives scheme in 2015, giving out as much as S$10,000 ($7,400) in cash to new parents. The public housing policy also prioritises married couples. The statistics show Singapore?s total population was up an annual 0.1 per cent at 5.61 million by June this year, the slowest in at least a decade. The number of people on work permits in Singapore fell sharply, hit by weakness in the construction and marine engineering sectors, the statistics department said. The number of permanent residents was stable, but the number of citizens was up 0.9 per cent at 3.44 million, the data showed.
Childhood cancer survivors have fewer long-term side effects: study
waqas dar posted a blog entry in Geo News BlogBetter treatment strategies for pediatric cancers are helping survivors live longer, with fewer serious health problems related to their treatment, US researchers said on Friday. The finding, presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting in Chicago, is based on analysis of data from 23,600 participants in the Childhood Cancer Survivor Study funded by the National Institutes of Health. Overall, severe health conditions arising within 15 years of childhood cancer diagnosis fell to 8.8 percent of survivors in the 1990s, from 12.7 percent in the 1970s, the study found. The findings show that childhood cancer survivors who were given more modern treatment approaches, such as reduced exposure to radiation and lower doses of chemotherapy, were faring better, said Todd Gibson of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, who led the study. "Not only are more children being cured, but they also have lower risk for developing serious health problems due to cancer treatments later in life," he said in a statement. The researchers focused on severe, disabling, life-threatening or fatal health problems that occurred within 15 years of being diagnosed with a pediatric cancer between 1970 and 1999. The biggest declines in health problems related to treatment occurred in survivors of Wilms' tumor, a rare kidney cancer. In this group, serious complications fell to 5 percent of survivors in the 1990s, from a high of 13 percent in the 1970s. IMPROVEMENTS In survivors of childhood Hodgkin lymphoma, latent complication rates fell to 11 percent, from 18 percent in the 1970s. Improvements were also seen for astrocytoma, the second most common childhood cancer, and acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common childhood cancer. There were no reductions in long-term side effects among survivors of neuroblastoma, acute myeloid leukemia, soft-tissue sarcoma and osteoscarcoma. The biggest improvements were seen with regards to endocrine conditions such as diabetes, thyroid disease or growth hormone deficiency. The researchers saw endocrine problems fall to 1.6 percent for childhood cancer survivors surveyed in the 1990s, compared with 4 percent in the 1970s. The emergence of secondary cancers fell to 1.6 percent in the 1990s, compared with 2.4 percent in the 1970s. Gastrointestinal and neurological conditions also improved. But there was no improvement in rates of heart or lung conditions, which the researchers said served as a reminder of the need for close follow-up in childhood cancer survivors.
