2002College Park, Md.MarylandWNCAAB17~24 After Wisconsin upset Kentucky in the men’s NCAA basketball tournament Saturday night, there was a riot near Kentucky’s campus in Lexington. People threw bottles and set fires, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. The police used pepper spray and arrested 31 people. And this wasn’t the first time people in Lexington reacted violently after a big Wildcats game. Last spring, the police arrested dozens of people after riots when Kentucky lost in the national championship game. And they arrested dozens of people in two separate riots in 2012, after Kentucky’s wins in the national semifinal and final.Those are four of about 50 North American sports riots in the past five decades for which I’ve gathered media-reported data. The database tells a violent history of the aftermath of many sporting events: thousands of people arrested, hundreds injured, more than a dozen killed. The riots occurred in more than a dozen U.S. states and three Canadian provinces, in reaction to sporting events in all four major North American pro sports, plus college football, basketball and hockey. Nearly all the sports riots originated in championship celebrations. Just a handful followed losses for the home team.I put this together after finding no existing, comprehensive database of these events. Our data isn’t comprehensive, either. Among the limitations: Our Nexis and Google searches might not have turned up all media reports. Different jurisdictions and media outlets might use different thresholds in counting, say, injuries and fires. We often found differing counts for the same incident, and some incident reports did not include information on arrests, injuries and deaths (in those cases, we left the fields below blank). The numbers might have changed for some riots after the last media report about them. And some might not have been reported.Please let us know by email or in the comments if we’ve missed any. 2004BostonRed SoxWMLB>141 2014Storrs, Conn.UConnWNCAAB>30 1991ChicagoBullsWNBA>1002 1996ChicagoBullsWNBA650 1984Manhattan, Kan.Kansas St.WNCAAF24>24 1984DetroitTigersWMLB40801 2003OaklandRaidersLNFL>84 1990San Francisco49ersWNFL14 1989San Francisco49ersWNFL~90 2002Columbus, OhioOhio StateWNCAAF>50 1990DetroitPistonsWNBA141hundreds7 2010MontrealCanadiensWNHL252 1998DenverBroncosWNFL2260 1992ChicagoBullsWNBA>1000~190 1985San Francisco49ersWNFL>183 2015Lexington, Ky.KentuckyLNCAAB313 2014Storrs, Conn.UConnWNCAAB26 1995San Francisco49ersWNFL~1803 2001State College, Pa.Penn StateLNCAAB203 1993MontrealCanadiensWNHL115168 2008MontrealCanadiensWNHL160 1997ChicagoBullsWNBA 2012Lexington, Ky.KentuckyWNCAABdozens~20 to hospital 2008State College, Pa.Penn StateWNCAAF00 2002College Park, Md.MarylandWNCAAB2 2001College Park, Md.MarylandLNCAAB1 2014Lexington, Ky.KentuckyLNCAAB3123 2014San FranciscoGiantsWMLB403 1986MontrealCanadiensWNHL28 YEARCITYTEAMW/LLEAGUEARRESTSINJUREDKILLED 2015Columbus, OhioOhio StateWNCAAF<10 1971PittsburghPiratesWMLB100 2002Bloomington, Ind.IndianaLNCAAB4340 2012Lexington, Ky.KentuckyWNCAAB27 1993DallasCowboysWNFL2618 1968DetroitTigersWMLB200 1993ChicagoBullsWNBA6833 2012San FranciscoGiantsWMLB35 1999East Lansing, Mich.Michigan St.LNCAAB132 2010San FranciscoGiantsWMLB>4 2011VancouverCanucksLNHL~100 2000Los AngelesLakersWNBA>11 2006EdmontonOilersWNHL<400 1986Manhattan, Kan.Kansas St.WNCAAF<211 2004BostonPatriotsWNFL2911 1 2002Saint Paul, Minn.MinnesotaWNCAAH20 1996DenverAvalancheWNHL153 1994VancouverCanucksLNHLdozens>200 1982San Francisco49ersWNFL80125

Meagan Charles is a nursing student at Medgar Evers College in Brooklyn, N.Y. She also one of the rising number of Americans diagnosed as children with diabetes.“I was 13 when I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes,” said Charles, now 22. “It was one of those things I didn’t understand at such a young age, I just knew that my father had it.”Physicians and health experts continue to see a rise in the percentage of American children with type 2, which usually affects adults. The leading cause for diabetes in children, they said, is obesity, which is still on the rise. (Photo/Wikipedia Commons)Diabetes, which can cause kidney failure, heart disease and amputations of legs and toes and even death, is a condition in which the body does not properly process food for use as energy. Most of the food people eat is turned into glucose, or sugar, for their bodies to use for energy. In diabetics, the pancreas can’t make enough of the hormone insulin to help glucose get into the cells of our bodies.Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. Only 5 percent of people with diabetes have this form of the disease; notable among them is actress Halle Berry.Type 2 is usually diagnosed in adults and can be genetically passed on by parents or grandparents. It is most often caused by obesity in children, and obesity is the leading cause in adults.The prevalence of childhood type 2 diabetes jumped more than 30 percent from 2000 to 2009, according to a study by the Pediatric Academic Societies, and continues to climb. Nationwide, 35.1 percent of children were overweight or obese in 2016 — a sharp 4.7 percent increase from just two years earlier, according to a study by Duke University.Maintaining the proper diet is vital for diabetics. Too many sugar-creating carbohydrates or not enough can cause severe illness, and even death.Growing up, Charles said, she watched as her father struggled with diabetes and the health issues that can accompany the disease.“If my mom didn’t cook the right foods for my dad, or if he didn’t eat on time, he would feel sick,” she said. “Sometimes he would become so weak he wouldn’t be able to do much for a few days.”After Charles was diagnosed, her mother, Maxiene Charles, found herself caring for both her husband and her newly-diagnosed diabetic daughter.“It was scary knowing that my child was diabetic,” Maxiene said. “At times it got frustrating, if she didn’t want to eat what I had prepared. It’s still a struggle but we’re getting there.”Charles had difficulty transitioning to the new diet needed to keep her diabetes under control. She ended up in the hospital at age 17 after not monitoring her diet properly, she said.“I was on my way home from class when I started feeling dizzy,” she said. “I actually drove myself to the hospital and my father met me there.” Charles nearly slipped into a diabetic coma, which could have been fatal if she didn’t go the hospital when she did, her doctors told her.Dr. Shurla Charles-Gonsalves, a family medicine physician in New York City, said one of the leading causes of diabetes in children is obesity, largely from consuming sugar-laden beverages, overeating or eating foods high in sugar—candies, cakes, donuts, brownies—or too many carbohydrates.“We’re seeing more and more children become overweight and obese at young ages, this will often set them up for diabetes now or later in life.” Charles-Gonsalves said.“We have to understand that socioeconomic issues are also leading factors when it comes to dealing with diabetes,” she added. “It is a privilege to be able to eat healthy and pay for medications and treatments for diabetic patients.”Children are usually diagnosed with diabetes after displaying a symptom, the doctor said.“That child may be always thirsty, always going to the bathroom and even eating a lot of food but not gaining weight,” she said. “We often see diabetes affecting children physically, whether it be weight gain, injecting insulin, or feeling any of the symptoms signaling diabetes, but rarely do we acknowledge the psychological effects this disease can have on people, especially children.”Maureen Monaghan, a clinical and pediatric psychologist and certified diabetes educator in the Childhood and Adolescent Diabetes Program at Children’s National Health System, said children afflicted with diabetes can be affected psychologically.“Kids with diabetes are at higher risk for a depressive episode,” Monaghan said.According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, an agency that works to advance the behavioral health of the nation, one in seven adolescents with diabetes had a major depressive episode in the past year.Monaghan said the effects of a diagnosis of diabetes on children varies from patient to patient“We have children as young as 1 and 2 that are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes,” said Monaghan, “That is very different from a 14-, 15- or 16-year-old with Type 1 diabetes. We have to think about the family and their ability to cope and adjust. There may be some grief and in-denial thinking, but some families are also impressed with how their child is handling their diagnosis.”As diabetes diagnosis rates are increasing, deaths among children are also occurring, Monaghan said.“We have lost a few of our patients to diabetes—I wouldn’t say a lot, thankfully it is fairly rare,” she said. “If patients do pass away due to Type 1 diabetes it is either because of an extreme high glucose level or an extreme low glucose level.”Or, she said, they can die because they can’t afford the insulin they desperately need. A month’s supply of insulin typically costs a few hundred dollars for those without medical insurance, and diabetics cannot survive without insulin injections or pills. Even though deaths from diabetes in children are less likely to occur, if diabetes isn’t managed correctly daily as a child and later as an adult, complications related to the disease can cause severe problems.Last year, Meagan Charles got a wake-up call when her father lost a limb to diabetes.“When my dad got his foot amputated, I knew things had to change.” Charles said.She urged anyone who suspects that they or someone they know might be diabetic to schedule an appointment with a doctor to be screened.“I think everyone should get screened for diabetes,” Charles said. “It’s better to know now, than be sorry later.”

Kolkata: New Town is going to the first area in Bengal, where air-conditioned electric buses will be introduced soon.The vehicles will be introduced in the areas that are not connected by buses. Three buses will be introduced, which will follow a circular route. Two buses will be for Action Area I and one for Action Area II. The buses will go up to Unitech, covering the campus of St. Xavier’s University and Karigari Bhavan. The average speed of the buses will be between 40-50 kmph. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe fare of the buses will be Rs 10. There will be no conductors. The drivers will collect the fare and a machine will be installed to generate the tickets.The bus drivers will be given special training to handle the buses along with collection of tickets. The battery needs to be charged and charging stations have come up. The body of the buses with 32 seats has been built by Eicher, while Karnataka based KPIT has installed the electrical systems. The buses are likely to be introduced in the middle of May. Trial runs are being made.New Town has been declared as a green city and steps have already been taken by Housing Infrastructure Development Corporation (HIDCO). Cycle sharing, an eco-friendly scheme, has become a great success and discussions are on to introduce e-vehicles on sharing basis as well. LED lamps have been installed in street lights to conserve power.
If your company doesn’t have a mobile app yet, you could be missing out on a golden opportunity to tap into new revenue streams. Smartphones and tablets are where today’s consumers live. The majority of the 120 million smartphone owners in the U.S. use a shopping or retail app at least once a month, according to a recent Nielsen report. Yours could be one of them.If you’d like a mobile app that lets customers buy your products — or simply access products reviews, videos or coupons — you’ll need to hire an experienced developer you trust to custom build it.Here are 10 key questions to ask mobile app developers to help you choose the right one for the job:1.Where can I find examples of mobile apps you’ve developed? Qualified candidates should be eager to provide you with a list of apps they are personally responsible for creating — or at least played a major role in developing — complete with links to each in Apple’s iOS App Store, BlackBerry App World or Google Play, Google’s Android app store.”That way you can begin to gauge whether or not they have the skills, experience and vision to produce the type of mobile app you’re looking for,” says Chad Mureta, CEO of App Empire, a San Francisco-based app development firm, and author of App Empire: Make Money, Have a Life, and Let Technology Work for You (Wiley, 2012).Related: The Basics: 3 Important Tips for Creating Killer Mobile Apps2. May I have a list of your current and past clients? Unlike reading movie credits, there’s typically no way to tell who actually developed an app. This is why speaking directly with candidates’ current and former clients can be essential to verifying that the developers actually created the apps they claim to have worked on, Mureta says.Checking references also gives you an opportunity to ask how reliable, responsive and results-oriented candidates are. For example, you might ask whether they delivered on deadline and within budget, and how well they work under pressure.Candidates sometimes only offer references who have a favorable opinion of them, says Farhan Thawar, vice president of engineering at Xtreme Labs, an Ontario, Canada-based mobile strategy and product development firm. He suggests visiting a candidate’s LinkedIn profile to see if you have any professional colleagues or former co-workers in common. If you do, contact your mutual connections and ask them about their impression of the candidate’s experience, capabilities and work ethic.3. What kind of smartphone do you use?This question can provide insight into how passionate and knowledgeable a candidate is about specific mobile platforms, Thawar says. “If you’re telling me that you can build an app for an iPhone, then you should have an iPhone, you should be playing with the apps that you are building and also playing with other people’s apps on a very regular basis.” The same goes for Android and BlackBerry.4. How can my app make money? If your primary goal is to generate revenue with your app, the developer needs to know exactly how to build in features that will allow you to make money. You could opt for a pay-per-download revenue model, charging, say, between 99 cents and $4.99, depending on how many features your app offers.If you opt for a free app, be sure the candidate is well versed in how to integrate mobile display ads, in-app purchases or paid subscription services.5. How will we communicate during the development process? The quality of your app often depends on how clearly and often you communicate your app design and functionality requirements throughout the development process.Does your app developer prefer to chat in person or via phone, Skype, instant message or email — and how often? Or does he or she prefer to interact with you using a popular project and task management system like 37signals’ Basecamp? How often will he or she provide you with status updates?Related: 5 Tools for Building a Shopping App6. What kind of special features can you create? Apps rarely grab consumers’ attention without truly innovative and useful features. Figure out the bells and whistles you’d like and then assess your developer’s capabilities. For example, can your candidate add 3-D gaming, social media sharing, GPS check-ins or product coupon elements to your app?7. Who will own the mobile app? Typically the individual or company paying for a mobile app will own the finished product, Mureta says. To be sure you own all the rights to the app you commissioned, you and the app developer should sign a written “copyright assignment” or “work made for hire” contract. The document should establish confidentiality and state that you own the app’s design, source code and all of its content.8. How will you test my app? Generally, the best way to test an app is simply to run it on the smartphone it will be used on. The candidate should provide a thorough explanation of how he or she conducts an extensive beta test to weed out any glitches. If bugs are found, how will the candidate fix them — and how quickly?9. Will you submit my mobile app to app stores? After you’ve approved the beta-tested version of your app, the last step is for the developer to submit it to an app store for approval to be sold there. App submission is often a long, multi-step process that your developer should already know how to successfully navigate.10. What are your fees and payment terms? Draft a written agreement specifying that you will pay the developer by the hour or with a flat fee. Most developers, like Mureta, ask for a one-time fee upfront. Others require a deposit at the beginning of a project, often for up to half of the estimated total cost, with the balance due when the app is completed.The most basic mobile apps can start between $1,000 and $5,000, but you could end up spending many times more if you pay a developer by the hour. More complicated mobile apps, including ones that are database driven or involve 3-D gaming, can cost thousands more.Related: Caterina Fake’s Findery Aims to Be an ‘Adventure Machine’ 6 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.
