New Delhi: The Indian Medical Association has called for the withdrawal of services of modern medicine doctors of the country for 24 hours from 6 am on Thursday (August 8). The decision was taken at an emergency extended Action Committee meeting of the association convened at the headquarters on Monday. In a statement, the IMA said, “The core concern of the Medical Profession has been left unaddressed in the approved NMC Bill, 2019.”IMA National President Santanu Sen said that the NMC Bill 2019 is “unacceptable to the medical fraternity in the current format”. He said, “Licensing community health providers who are connected to modern medicine will only invite a healthcare catastrophe where vulnerable marginalised rural patients will be affected. The Community Health Providers envisaged on NMC Bill 2019 is a direct threat to thousands and thousands of poor vulnerable marginalized rural patients. The Health of the nation is at stake. We demand that the Government of India engage the modern medical fraternity on meaningful dialogue and address the issue urgently.” The IMA said that this would lead to the community practitioner to be available as cheap labour to corporate hospitals as duty doctors, and will work in ICUs, Critical Care Units, Casualties, Emergency Units, Operation Theatres, Wards and OPDs.
TORONTO — The cases against two students accused in alleged sex assaults at a private Toronto school have concluded.Ontario’s Ministry of the Attorney General will not say, however, what the outcomes of the cases against the St. Michael’s College students were, citing restrictions under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.Police laid charges against seven teens at the all-boys Catholic school last year that related to two alleged sexual assaults and one alleged assault on campus.The two students in the recently concluded matters each faced charges of gang sex assault, assault with a weapon and assault in two separate incidents.The conclusion of their cases comes after sexual assault and assault charges were withdrawn against another student in early August, with the Crown saying a conviction in that matter was unlikely.The cases of four other teens remain before the courts, with hearings in those matters set for September and October.A lawyer for one of the students whose case was concluded says he could not comment due to publication bans under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, while a lawyer for the second student did not immediately respond to a request for comment.A spokeswoman with the Ministry of the Attorney General says the Youth Criminal Justice Act places strict restrictions on youth court records, including information on the offence and the resolution of the case.“These restrictions are meant to protect young persons from the stigma of the criminal justice system and foster their rehabilitation and reintegration into society,” said Shenaia Shields.An independent committee tasked with examining culture at St. Michael’s released a report last week that found bullying continues to be a systemic issue at the prestigious school despite measures introduced in the wake of the allegations that came to light last fall.The Canadian Press

It’s a thin band with a physical button on the side.Both have touchscreens, although the Charge 3 has a monochrome display compared to the Versa’s color LCD. You can swipe across from the sides of the display to access fitness tracking features or settings. To go back, press the side of the Charge 3. The Versa has three physical buttons that let you go back, start or stop activities, and make selections.You can change the watch faces on both in the Fitbit app. But the Charge 3 has fewer watch faces to choose from than the Versa, which has plenty of third-party options.Change the straps with this toggle on the Versa (left) and button on the Charge 3 (right). Angela Lang/CNET I found it hard to see the display on the Charge 3 in direct sunlight, regardless of the brightness setting selected (you can choose between auto or normal brightness). For me, the Versa was easier to see outdoors and you get an extra brightness setting to choose from.To change up the look of your Fitbit, each offers interchangeable straps. The Charge 3 has quick release buttons at the back, while the Versa uses a small metal bar that you have to toggle to change the strap. It’s a lot easier to swap the straps out on the Charge 3 than it is the Versa, especially if you’re looking for a quick change.Each display is coated in Gorilla Glass 3 to protect against scratches and bumps.Winner: Tie, depending on which size you preferFitness tracking features are similar on bothBoth Fitbits have an optical heart rate sensor, sleep tracking, female health tracking and water resistance to 50 meters. Neither has GPS built-in. Instead, they use connected GPS. So if you want to track your route, pace and elevation during an outdoor workout, you’ll need to take your phone with you.Check out your previous workouts from the Fitbit app. You can also tap into each one to see a breakdown of heart rate zones and calories. Tracking a run will also show a breakdown of your average pace. Screenshot by Lexy Savvides/CNET They both have automatic workout detection, and you can set goal-based exercises to get a notification once you pass a set distance, time or calorie goal.The Charge 3 lets you put six different workout shortcuts on the exercise screen, while the Versa gives you space for seven shortcuts. You can choose from 19 workout types from the Fitbit app (run, hike, walk, swim, bike, spinning, pilates, interval workout, golf, elliptical, weights, workout, treadmill, stairclimber, yoga, tennis, kickboxing, circuit training, martial arts, bootcamp). Both give you reminders to move, prompting you to complete a number of steps an hour to “win”.I found the fabric and plastic Fitbit straps fairly comfortable to work out with during a run or sweaty Pilates session.Thanks to its larger screen, the Versa gives you more metrics from your workout once you complete your exercise routine. It’s also the only one that lets you go back and view your past few workouts from the watch face, rather than diving into the Fitbit app itself.The Versa has lots of third-party apps available (which we’ll cover in the next section) which makes it easier if you prefer to track your workout in a different app. During workouts, I found the Charge 3 often gave a higher reading on my heart rate than the Versa. During an outdoor run, it said my maximum heart rate was over 200 beats per minute. From using previous heart rate trackers and smartwatches (and comparing with the Versa), running at the same intensity on the same route never gave me a max heart rate over 190.The Versa comes with the Coach app. A bit like a personal trainer on your wrist, it runs you through a sequence of moves with quick visual cues on the screen. It’s a nice extra if you want to squeeze in a quick workout. For similar workouts on the Charge 3, you’ll need to use the Fitbit Coach app on your phone.Fitbit metrics don’t sync to Apple Health, so keep this in mind if you are an iOS user who likes to consolidate data in one app.Winner: VersaBoth have smartwatch features, but the Versa does moreIt’s easy to get notifications mirrored from your phone on each Fitbit, and they both work with iOS and Android. That being said, you’ll only be able to respond to notifications if it’s tied to Android. You can customize quick responses to messages from the Fitbit app.Fitbit Pay is a mobile wallet that lets you tap to pay with NFC at compatible terminals. It’s only available if you buy the special edition of both (which does come at a premium). Angela Lang/CNET The Versa is the only one that can store music. It has space for around 300 songs, but the process to get those tunes onto the watch is cumbersome. You need to download a desktop app then make sure the Versa and your computer are on the same Wi-Fi network to start the transfer.If you prefer a streaming service, the only two options available are Pandora and Deezer, as long as you have a subscription. There is a third-party Spotify app available, but it is only to control playback from your phone.There are also many more third-party apps available on the Versa than there were when it first launched. Here’s a list of some of our favorites. The Charge 3 doesn’t have third-party apps at the time of writing.As the Versa was released in April 2018, a new edition of the watch potentially called Fitbit Versa 2 may be around the corner. We don’t have any insider information, but we’d love to see on-board GPS and Fitbit Pay integrated into the new version.Winner: VersaBattery life is stellar on the Charge 3There’s no contest here. You’ll get around six to seven full days on the Charge 3 before you need to juice it up, while the Versa gives you around four full days. Each has a proprietary clip-in charger. If you’re coming from the Charge 2, the cable for the Charge 3 is different.Winner: Charge 3What about price?At the time of writing, the Charge 3 costs $150 for the regular edition and $20 more gets you the special edition with Fitbit Pay and extra bands. The Versa is $200 and the special edition, also with Fitbit Pay, costs $30 more. Since the Versa was released almost a year ago, it has been discounted several times to a price that’s pretty comparable to the Charge 3 (the cheapest we’ve seen it in the past is $90).So comparing the Charge 3 and the Versa on price isn’t always straightforward, as you can get them for around the same price at certain times of the year.Winner: TieWhich is the best Fitbit for me?If you want Fitbit’s top of the line fitness tracker with a heart rate monitor and without too many bells and whistles, get the Charge 3. The battery will last you a long time and you’ll get notifications mirrored from your phone.If you’re looking for a smartwatch with a big screen, more robust fitness tracking on the watch itself, and the added bonus of a personal trainer on your wrist, get the Versa.

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx at the 2019 Met GalaTwitterJamie Foxx and Katie Holmes have called off their six-year-long relationship. In fact, a source has confirmed on the same that they apparently separated back in May! What further validates the split is the fact that Foxx was seen stepping out of a pub with singer Sela Vave. Shocking reports of Foxx holding hands with the up-and-coming singer Sela Vave as they left a nightclub got the tongues wagging. Soon after that, it was confirmed that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes had split.As per a report on TMZ, Vave is Foxx’s new talent as he is a record producer apart from being an actor and singer. The two attended Lil Pump’s 19th birthday party at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood. Meanwhile, Holmes was chilling in the Big Apple, keeping herself as far away from Foxx and Hollywood. On the same, a source did add, “She’s just a girl he’s helping out, a young singer.” However, the fact that the otherwise fiercely private actor didn’t mind holding hands of his up-and-coming talent, did make everyone wonder if there is something more brewing here.Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx first made headlines back in 2013. It was reported by In Touch magazine that Holmes and Foxx were taking their friendship to the next level. Although the actor instantly shut down rumours by stating that there is nothing cooking here. He told Entertainment Tonight, “[The rumours] are one hundred per cent not true. n fact, it’s quite hilarious because we simply danced at a charity event along with a lot of other people.” However, over the years that followed, romance rumours continued to take over Hollywood as the couple was often sighted holding hands and spending time together.Another picture of the couple holding hands while going through some work stuff at a recording studio further reignited all the rumours of them being together. This happened in 2015. Next, they were once again spotted spending Valentine’s Day together in 2017 by engaging in some sporty activities. Pictures of them from the pre-Grammys gala in January 2018 amplified all the rumours as they were seated together, with eyes only for each other. Be it in Miami or New York City or Los Angeles, Jamie and Katie’s whirlwind but private romance continued to make everyone believe that they were going super strong. Last December, as Katie celebrated her 40th birthday, Jamie was by her side as they enjoyed a good time at Serendipity in NYC. Even Katie’s mother Kathleen Slothers-Holmes was at the intimate birthday celebration. Katie Holmes and Jamie FoxxTwitterThe former couple were even spotted kissing in a Malibu beach back in 2018. Their relationship took a new level as they were holding hands and taking a midnight stroll in LA along with Foxx’s daughter Corinne Foxx. Lastly, they were spotted being in pretty good shape as they arrived for the 2019 Met Gala together.
