such as malaria, dengue, leishmaniasis, Lyme disease, schistosomiasis, and yellow fever, carried by mosquitoes, flies, ticks, water snails and other vectors. Every year, more than one billion people are infected and more than one million die from vector-borne diseases. This World Health Day 7 April WHO is highlighting the serious and increasing threat of vector-borne diseases, with the slogan Small bite, big threat. The Organization also emphasizes that these diseases are entirely preventable. Newly published "A global brief on vector-borne diseases" outlines steps that governments, community groups and families can all take to protect people from infection. A global health agenda that gives higher priority to vector control could save many lives and avert much suffering. Simple, cost-effective interventions like insecticide-treated bed nets and indoor spraying have already saved millions of lives, ,No one in the 21st century should die from the bite of a mosquito, a sandfly, a blackfly or a tick. Vector-borne diseases affect the poorest populations, particularly where there is a lack of access to adequate housing, safe drinking water and sanitation. Malnourished people and those with weakened immunity are especially susceptible. Within the past two decades, many important vector-borne diseases have also re-emerged or spread to new parts of the world. Environmental changes, a massive increase in international travel and trade, changes in agricultural practices and rapid unplanned urbanization are causing an increase in the number and spread of many vectors worldwide and making new groups of people, notably tourists and business travellers, vulnerable. Mosquito-borne dengue, for example, is now found in 100 countries, putting more than 2.5 billion people - over 40% of the world's population - at risk. Dengue has recently been reported in China, Portugal and the state of Florida, in the United States of America. On World Health Day 2014, WHO is calling for a renewed focus on vector control and better provision of safe water, sanitation and hygiene key strategies outlined in WHOs 2011 Roadmap for the control, elimination and eradication of neglected tropical diseases, which sets targets for the period 20122020.

ARTY YOGA CLASSES at Virugambakkam

oga, for long, has been considered as passive, monotonous and traditional form of exercise. The truth is that the form of yoga widely taught in India has lost its freshness and spontaneity. Many people who have been practicing yoga for 20 years, are still pot-bellied and unfit. The question that comes naturally is this: How could an overweight person without strength, stamina or agility could move towards the higher practices of yoga effectively? Thus was born the idea to develop a new form of yoga. An approach that uses Asanas along with other yogic techniques to work on all aspects of physical fitness Flexibility, Strength, Cardiovascular Endurance, Agility and Coordinative Ability to ensure that a person is optimally fit and alert in order to move towards higher practices like meditation. Shiva, after many years of training and practice in Yoga, developed Arty Yoga which combines authentic tradition with modern exercise physiology.

Microsoft-managed datacentre. Once SMBs have opted for Windows Azure usage based on the exchange value of their legacy hardware [See Box] they will be able to work with any of Microsofts Azure circle partners to migrate and expand their infrastructure on Windows Azure. The Trade-In scheme is yet another step in a series of initiatives that Microsoft has undertaken to enable SMBs to leverage the opportunity and value that cloud offers. As we work with SMBs, it is clear that they are looking at growing their businesses with minimal investments.

We believe this is a game changer for our SMB customers who have deployed their legacy servers in a co- located model to transition to a public cloud. said Ajith George- Co-founder and Director, Sysfore.

A psychologist raised a glass of water, and asked his class : How heavy is this glass of water? He smiled & replied, The weight actually does not matter. If I hold it for a minute, its not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, Ill have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesnt change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes. He continued, The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed incapable of doing anything. Its important to remember to let go of your stresses. Every day, early in the evening, put all the days burdens down. Dont carry them to the next day. Start the next day with a prayer & a smile, and see life smile back at you . . . Vinod Kumar .P email :
