This paper aims to review health outcomes in Madhya Pradesh, paying particular attention to the influence of inequity on community. The paper identifies some core issues to improve accessibility, coverage and service quality in Madhya Pradesh. We draw on the available evidence in published literature, vital statistics and reports published by state, national and international organizations. The paper is organized as follows. First, we give a brief background of the health sector in MP. Second, we outline the situation of inequity and growing health challenges. Finally, we conclude with suggestions to improve overall health scenario of the state. Source

Tigers (Panthera tigris) are wide-ranging species, and a permeable landscape matrix outside Protected Areas (PAs) is extremely important for their dispersal. A tigress which had fallen in a water duct in the Nagpur district was rescued by the Forest Department on 12th October, 2011 and released on 27th November, 2011 in a forest adjacent to the site of capture. A GPS-GSM collar that we fitted on her indicated that she remained in the same forest area until 25th December, 2011, and then moved eastwards into a human-dominated landscape where she was present until 25th March, 2012, after which the GPS battery ceased to function. She moved a minimum distance of 454.65 km from the time of her release up to 25th March, 2012, using a total area of 726 km2 (95% MCP), but between 30th December, 2011 and 25th March, 2012, after moving into the human-dominated forestagricultural landscape her home range was 431 km2 (95% MCP). Her home range also encompassed villages, roads and croplands. Her activity was largely nocturnal and she rested in dense foliage inside forest patches during the day. About half of all the prey items that we identified during this period (n = 12) were wild pigs (Sus scrofa). Although, she was present very close to areas where humans were active in the day, no untoward incident occurred. She was photographed in April 2013, a year after the collar stopped functioning, in the same region about 40 km from the release site, indicating that she is still present in the human-dominated area. Very little is known about tiger ecology, and their temporal and spatial patterns of movement, outside PAs. These areas will be crucial in terms of dispersal between PAs as well as sensitive in terms of conflict. © Vidya Athreya, R. Navya, Girish A. Punjabi, John D. C. Linnell, Morten Odden, S.

The peanut extract (peanut milk), aims to bring to population a rich drink in vegetable protein. For its production, a compact, functional and easy to operate machine was developed, made up of systems of charging, milling and action and a support base. The equipment was developed and validated in laboratory, considering: the time of processing of the product and the residue produced; yields of the machine and residue produced using two distinct sieves (1.5 and 0.42 mm); density by densimeter a mass/volume relation; approximate costs of its production, considering the cost of the kernels, the mineral water and the electric power. The machine presented in laboratory a production time of 110.58 and 98.45 s for the Techniques 1 and 2, respectively, average density of 0,99 kg dm-3; performance of 2000 mL for the siever 1 and 1726 mL for the sieve 2; and, final cost of R$ 1.78 for Technique 1 and R$ 1.50 for the Technique 2. © Departamento de Engenharia Agricola - UFCG/Cnpq.

The southern pedestrian bridge at Remscheid Central Station is the heart of the new shopping centre, which was erected on the redeveloped Remscheid central station area. The bridge makes up the architectural face of the new centre and beyond that creates new connecting passages on different spatial levels between municipal areas, buildings and traffic facilities. The bridge is part of the project "Regionale 2006". © Ernst & Sohn Verlag für Architektur und technische Wissenschaften GmbH & Co. KG, Berlin. Source

We report magnetization and ac susceptibility as functions of the temperature and frequency for CuCr2O4 spinel oxide from 2 K to 300 K. Bulk CuCr2O4 crystallizes at room temperature in a tetragonal distorted spinel and above 865 K its structure is cubic spinel; distortion is caused by Jahn-Teller Cu2+ ions. The magnetization data of the polycrystalline sample indicates ferrimagnetic order below TC =122 K. Magnetization isotherm resulted in an average magnetic moment of 0.08 μB/f.u. at 2 K values lowest to expected value. This discrepancy can be explained assuming a triangular configuration of spins Cr3+ and Cu2+. The ferromagnetic phase of the sample does not show glassy behavior. Its magnetic response can be explained simply from the domain wall dynamics of otherwise homogeneous ferrimagnet. © 2012 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC. Source
