The missing informal workers in India’s vaccine story By Sanjiv Das on June 11, 2018 Share 770 senior citizens in old age homes were covered under the 26 camps organised in Bengaluru, Kolkata, Hyderabad, and MumbaiPortea Medical recently conducted health checkup camps for the elderly in partnership with InnoVen Capital, a firm that provides venture debt. Under the partnership, 26 health camps were organised at multiple NGOs across four cities. The camps provided lab packages and doctor consultations for 770 senior citizens in Bengaluru (380), Mumbai (150), Hyderabad (140), and Kolkata (100).The health camps were organised to focus on providing long-term intervention, rehabilitation and continuous care for the elderly. The camps were organised at Gandhi Old Age Home, Fathima Old Age Home and HelpAge India across the four cities.As part of the camps, doctors provided advice, wrote out prescriptions and provided basic medicines. Various health talks were also organised to create awareness among the senior citizens on why it is imperative to undergo regular health checks. Apart from blood tests, and consultations based on test reports, Portea also distributed free medical kits to the NGOs.With this preventive medical intervention, the elderly will get an opportunity to receive ongoing care in the future further translating to dignified elder care management in India for disadvantaged societies. It is hoped that more organisations will come forward, taking this as an example, and help in providing better lives and continuous access to healthcare for this section of society.

The Vicky Joseph Professor of Engineering and Applied Mathematics at Harvard, Stone was selected by the Batchelor Prize committee for the breadth and depth of his research over a 10-year period (1998-2007) and for his widely acknowledged leadership in fluid mechanics generally.Stone is particularly well-known for his pioneering studies in microfluids, including understanding the “slip” boundary condition; foam drainage, especially the proposing and testing of a new generalized foam drainage equation; and biological fluid dynamics. His analysis of simple model problems has led to important fundamental understandings and practical applications using theoretical, computational, and experiential methods.The $25,000 Batchelor Prize will be awarded during the 22nd International Congress of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics in Adelaide, Australia, this August. There, Stone will present a lecture about some of this research.— Compiled by Andrew Brooks

TUSCALOOSA – From just the right angle, it might seem like Derrick Henry is the only running back participating in spring drills.Standing at 6-foot-3 and 242 pounds, the junior nearly dwarfs his fellow Crimson Tide running backs, especially when he’s preparing to lead them in a drill as Alabama’s unquestioned No. 1 tailback.And, after spending his first two seasons working behind now-former Alabama tailback T.J. Yeldon, Henry’s taking that new distinction and running with it.“I accept that role as being a leader,” Henry said this week. “I just want to make everybody better around me and just get them to push themselves, because I’m going to give it my all every time I’m out there and just try to make the team better.”That leadership role is one the 20-year-old Yulee, Florida, native is carrying around with great pride, and it’s shown in every part of his daily approach.“He’s one of the hardest workers on our team,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “If you were going to give a most valuable player in the offseason program for just finishing, running hard, winning every race, finishing the drill, he’d have probably got it or been in the top three at least. I think that he has a real burning desire to be a really, really good player and works really hard at it.”Saban said the only real concern with Henry is keeping him level and not so fixated on being great that he gets “anxious” or “frustrated” and it becomes a negative.“It’s almost like a basketball player that’s supposed to be a great scorer and he only has two points at halftime and he’s pulling his hair out,” Saban said. “You really don’t want that — maybe he’ll score 24 in the next half. But you’ve got to just focus on what you’re doing right now, knowing that if you do it right, you’re going to have success and don’t worry about that.”Known as a big and physical runner, Henry hasn’t always been considered an all-around running back, especially when it came to blocking out of the backfield.But, just like with his role as Alabama’s top tailback, that too came in time.“That was a big transition, and I feel like the older you are and more you play football you learn a lot more about blocking technique,” Henry said. “That’s big here. Coach (Saban) really emphasizes that we have to block, like, a lot and I feel like I’ve gotten better. Just to the younger guys, I emphasize to them that blocking is a big deal and in college football, you’ve got to learn how to block to be able to play.”And at least according to his head coach, Henry’s more than made that transition as he enters his third spring at Alabama.“I think Derrick Henry has improved in all aspects of the game where he doesn’t have the ball — which includes blocking, which includes being a better receiver, understanding pass protections (like) when you need to get out, when you can’t,” Saban said.That improvement, and the reemergence of a healthy Kenyan Drake, has many around Alabama eager to see what the backfield duo will do this coming season.Drake, a senior, is back in action just five months removed from a gruesome broken left leg suffered Oct. 4, 2014 when he was sandwiched between two Ole Miss defenders, including one that went low as his left leg snapped and his foot dangled the wrong way.Back after spending two months in a walking boot, Drake’s rapid recovery didn’t come as a surprise to those that know him best, especially Henry.“No, I wasn’t surprised at all because I knew the tough person he is, he’s going to work hard because he loves the game,” Henry said. “He loves playing the game and he missed being out there. I knew he’d do anything and work hard to get back out there.”In an effort to expand his role, Drake has been seeing more time working with receivers at practice this week as Tide coaches try to further take advantage of his natural pass-catching abilities.“Derrick Henry and him both are pretty dynamic players for us that are really good playmakers so we’re going to explore every way possible that we can get those guys the ball,” Saban said. “So far, Kenyan has been very good as a back coming out of the backfield and the matchups that he gets with that and we’ll continue to explore ways to do that. But we might have some personnel groups where we play those two guys together. I think both of those scenarios are the reason you’re seeing what you see.”The idea of having both Drake and Henry in the backfield at the same time, or slotting Drake out wide at receiver with Henry at tailback, could add a new dimension to Alabama’s offense in the second year under offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin.“Kenyan’s a great receiver out of the backfield. Me in the backfield and him at receiver, you really wouldn’t know what’s coming or who’s getting the ball,” Henry said.Saban may have even given his next great running back tandem its own celebrity nickname — Kendrick, a mashup of their first names that resulted when Saban momentarily stuttered while speaking about the two.Whatever the pair is called, both Drake and Henry have the potential to provide Alabama’s offense a major boost this coming season.And given how far each has come in just the last year, Saban plans to take full advantage of both as frequently as he can this fall.“Kenyan Drake I think has a better understanding — (though he’s) not quite as big and as physical as Derrick — but I trust both those guys to be able to do a good job in that regard,” Saban said. “They’ve definitely made a lot of progress.“But they also have the capability of making a lot of plays, so we definitely want them on the field as much as possible.”
