” the statement reads in part. it is also the best managed. But on their journey BFC has also elevated the footballing ecosystem in the city — from the fans to the stadium the training and right down to their approach to grassroots The other unique instance was brought about thanks to India’s entrepreneurs wanting to make a difference When Mark Dharmai — a para-badminton shuttler — wanted to take part in an international event in Thailand he was short of funds and needed help This is where Mark was able to team up with Fueladream — a crowdfunding platform — and raise awareness around para-sports whilst also making a plea to him raise funds The campaign proved to be a tremendous success as Indians got together to help Mark and for his part the shuttler didn’t disappoint winning a silver medal The burgeoning entrepreneurial ecosystem has played the key-role of a problem solver but it also comes down to providing that tiny bit of support which to you and I might feel tiny but to the athlete our gestures support could magnify exponentially Today Mark is one of the best para-badminton players on the planet and maybe brands need to help more Marks With the Olympics in Tokyo only two years away the glare of the cameras will focus on our athletes and rightfully so But let us not forget the ones who don’t make it as their stories are just as much a part of the Indian sporting story for their stories are a better representation of what happens in sport: an incredibly crystalised version of survival of the fittest When we think of an improvement it could be in these stories — defeat at the eleventh hour lack of funding impatience in the face of a genuine talent — that we can really learn and build our culture and in the process our sporting future And it can be bright very bright Sanjeev Anand is in-charge

North-Eastern states produce champions from across the aisle,S. measles was declared eliminated in 2000 Since 2000 however there has been a resurgence of measles with more than 2216 reported cases Wakefields anti-vaccine fanaticism contributed to the 2015 outbreak in Disneyland in California which eventually infected more than 130 people and to the 2017 measles outbreaks in Minnesota where his message persuaded many parents not to vaccinate their children The vaccine-autism myth has also prompted an alarming number of millennials the generation that came of age in the era of Wakefields misinformation in the US not to vaccinate their children Vaccine reluctance does not apply just to measles; flu kills 100 to 300 children under age 5 each year and up to 85% of them were not vaccinated when they died What will it take to protect parents and children from this kind of fraudulent science First trust is vital in order for people to accept health interventions The messenger can be more important than the message Thus the advice of trusted primary healthcare providers families and friends is often much more influential than the cold facts of official sources Fortunately trust can be built or rebuilt over time as the UK demonstrated when it reached 95% measles immunization coverage Second the medical community must redouble its efforts to ensure the integrity of its evidence And it must move rapidly to address suspected scientific fraud Wakefield was not disciplined by the UK medical authorities nor was the article retracted by The Lancet until 2010 despite serious concerns raised by experts at the time of publication and the 2004 expose on Wakefields sloppy science and retraction by co-authors Third print and broadcast media have a special responsibility to provide clear evidenced-based reporting The decline in MMR immunization following Wakefields article was accelerated by the pro-Wakefield UK media despite increasingly strong evidence refuting Wakefield’s claims Conversely the recovery from Wakefields damaging impact was catalyzed by the 2004 investigative journalism reports exposing Wakefields flawed science and conflicts of interest Truth wins if were committed to telling it Fourth state health officials must ensure that public health policies are enforced as intended The rise in measles cases in many states resulted from the loosening of immunization requirements for school entry California has raised its vaccine coverage by enacting stronger vaccination policies to curtail such exemptions Finally in an age of social media frequent distrust of authorities and increasing epidemic threats parents and educators have a vital role in helping children from an early age learn the skills of critical thinking and informed skepticism to discern life-saving facts from fatal fictions Over a century ago American writer Mark Twain quipped “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes” This has certainly been the case for the vaccine-autism myth In a world in which fabricated science is plentiful and spreads rapidly we must be vigilant if we are to avert epidemics that would have been prevented were it not for vaccine denial Too much is at stake for ourselves and our children to not apply the lessons from the vaccine-autism debacle to avert the dangerous long-term consequences when fake science gains traction and threatens the health and lives of everyone Dr Quick is a senior fellow at the nonprofit Management Sciences for Health and an instructor at Harvard
