A nine-day-old boy died on Tuesday at a government hospital in Darbhanga district of Bihar allegedly after being bitten by rats. The district administration has ordered a probe.The infant was admitted to the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit of the Darbhanga Medical College and Hospital on Monday. “When we reached the hospital early in the morning, no nurse or doctor was around… we found that rats had bitten the baby’s hands and legs at several places… we immediately informed the authorities who told us that the baby was dead,” Phuran Chaupal, the father told local journalists in Darbhanga. His inconsolable wife Neelam Chaupal too blamed negligent hospital doctors and nurses for the death of her child.The hospital authorities said when the baby was admitted he was in a serious condition. “We admit that the hospital is infested with rats which we cannot control but there were no signs of rat bites on the baby’s body”, said a doctor posted at the hospital. However, the grieving parents later met senior district official Kashi Prasad Mahto and demanded action against the hospital authorities for their ‘negligence.’ Mr. Mahto ordered a probe into the incident.

He said on Sky Sports: “They have cocked it up over many years. They have cocked it up. They have cocked it up, they are responsible for this. Poor recruitment, poor selection of, well managers, going with them and then pulling off them.”Van Gaal won the FA Cup and then they sacked him. Jose Mourinho they sacked him after two and a half years when they had given him a contract six months before.”They have pulled off managers in what would be the sort of thread of it and they have gone for completely different styles of managers in Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.”They have now gone with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has taken the club in a completely different direction again, and if you change direction as a board every two years and you invest £250million along the way in each manager you are going to have big problems.”And Manchester United are basically now getting the pain they deserve for poor decisions at board level.”Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to ensure that the clean up job that he is doing – which needs to be done because of the mess that’s gone before him – he needs to make sure that he actually gets the opportunity to spend that £250million that the others have got to spend so that he can have an opportunity.”There are things out there that I like. There are things that I liked from Jose Mourinho as well, I didn’t want him to be sacked, but there were things I liked out there today.”

According to a ‘Focused Enforcement’ state trooper dispatch, while the troopers are out to curb DUIs, they will also be on the lookout for additional driver behaviors that often contribute to fatal crashes, such as speeding and driving too fast for conditions. The focused enforcement by the Alaska State Troopers and Alaska Wildlife Troopers over the holiday is intended to prevent major injury and fatality crashes through enhanced enforcement. Don’t hesitate to make a REDDI report any time of the year by calling 911! To learn more about REDDI (Report Every Dangerous Driver Immediately) visit http://www.dot.alaska.gov/stwdplng/hwysafety/REDDI.shtml. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska State and Wildlife Troopers started the Annual Click It or Ticket high visibility enforcement effort on Monday. The effort runs through June 2. Colonel Barry Wilson, Director of the Alaska State Troopers: “Memorial Day weekend serves as a kick-off to summer. People celebrate with barbecues, camping and other family gatherings. We want people to go out and have a good time. We just ask that you do it with a plan in place to get home safe… wear your seat belt. Additionally, if you choose to consume alcohol, don’t drive impaired, be sure to have a designated driver, stay the night or call a cab. Again, if you plan to celebrate on Memorial Day weekend, have a plan to get home safe.”
Here’s a timelapse of images over 2.5 hr from May from @keckobservatory of the supermassive black hole Sgr A*. The black hole is always variable, but this was the brightest we’ve seen in the infrared so far. It was probably even brighter before we started observing that night! pic.twitter.com/MwXioZ7twV— Tuan Do (@quantumpenguin) August 11, 2019 Scientists aren’t quite sure why this strange flash occurred, but it’s apparently nothing to be concerned about. Speaking to ScienceAlert, Tuan Do (an author on the study which spotted the bright light) said the flash could be the result of another star (S02) passing close by, thereby changing the way gas flows into the black hole. Another working theory is the flash was caused by G2, a gas cloud which also recently passed close (36 light-hours) to the black hole in 2014. There is a possibility this is a delayed reaction to that event. 3 Other teams and telescopes, such as Spitzer, Swift, Chandra, and ALMA, have also been observing Sagittarius A*. Do is curious to see if they too spotted the strange emission. Perhaps that data can help shed new light on this strange burst of infra-red light. Taken when I was @keckobservatory, this raw image shows the brightest Sgr A* has ever been observed in the infrared (center). The emission associated with the black hole also changed by a factor of 75 over that night. Is Sgr A* waking up? Will we finally see 🎆? pic.twitter.com/lX7ZO2PhX2— Tuan Do (@quantumpenguin) August 8, 2019 16 Photos What is a black hole? The universe’s dark, mysterious monsters Tags Sci-Tech Culture Robin Dienel/Carnegie Institution for Science In news that reads like the beginning of a dire science fiction novel Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy, has emitted a large burst of infrared radiation brighter than anything ever produced by that black hole. The black hole is well-known to scientists, and was one of the subjects of our first ever efforts to image the cosmic beasts, but its still throwing up new mysteries all the time.After observing for over four days using the Keck II Telescope in Hawaii, a team that has been studying Sagittarius A* for 20 plus years noticed the infrared light increased by 75 times.
