PMA condemns hooliganism at LGH

LAHORE: An emergent meeting of PMA Lahore was held at PMA House Lahore with Dr. Tanveer Anwar President PMA Lahore in chair. The meeting observed with grave concern the hooliganism carried out at LGH and manhandling Prof. Dr. M. Aslam Chohan and condemned it. This high handedness was termed as failure of writ of state and demanded Chief Minister to take notice of its. It also urged the authorities to arrest the culprits and punish them.
According to reports, the paramedics of the hospital had been observing strike and Prof. M. Aslam was appointed to conduct an enquiry. The move behind this hooliganism is reported to be to stop this enquiry. Since the area lies in the constituency of some important parliamentarians of the ruling party, and in view of the voters residing in the adjacent residential colony, efforts are being made to hush up the case. If it does happen, the culprits will become bold and might misbehave with some other senior faculty members in the days to come. Hence the administration must take it seriously and arrest those involved in this incident.


Aspirin before bed may reduce
morning heart attack, stroke risk

According to a study presented a Tuesday’s AHA meeting, “taking the aspirin before bed may reduce the chance of having a heart attack or stroke in the morning.” Study author Tobias Bonten of the Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands explained, “Platelet activity is highest in the morning, and that is also the time that most heart attacks and strokes occur, so if you reduce platelet activity during the morning hours, you might reduce heart attacks and stroke at that time.”
