Posted on 30 November 2017 by admin

Combining modern luxury and legendary hospitality with authentic Sri Lankan charm, Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo is a place where the city comes alive, and is set to become an icon for the city of Colombo.

Colombo, Sri Lanka,16 November 2017

Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts celebrated the opening of Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo with an inauguration ceremony that signalled the city’s most highly anticipated hotel launch in nearly 30 years.

The ceremony entailed the cutting of the ribbon to mark new beginnings and the unveiling of the plaque by His Excellency Maithripala Sirisena, the President of Sri Lanka. To signify the symbolic merging of two countries, China and Sri Lanka, rituals from both cultures to mark prosperity were performed. Dotting of the lion’s eye in Chinese culture is believed to herald good luck and good fortune, whilst the age-old tradition of lighting the oil lamp marks auspicious new beginnings in Sri Lanka.

The ceremony also saw the hotel’s first guest check-ins by Jacqueline Fernandez, the internationally acclaimed Sri Lankan actress, and two of China’s most prominent influencers, Mr. Fan Yi Ren and Ms. Lu Lu.

Sri Lankans allowed to invest US$200,000 outside country – Economy Next

Posted on 29 November 2017 by admin

 

Nov 29, 2017.

ECONOMYNEXT – Sri Lanka's new forex law has allowed an individual to invest 200,000 dollars outside the country, in their lifetime, a partnership 300,000 dollars, but an unlisted company could invest 500,000 US dollars a year. Sri Lanka ended draconian laws against individual investments abroad, under then Central Bank Governor Nivard Cabraal, who relaxed many controls, which are continued under a new simplified exchange control low.

A listed company in the Colombo Stock Exchange could invest up to 2.0 million dollars a year.
The outward investors could buy shares, units, debt securities, and sovereign bonds.
A partnership or company setting up an office overseas could also take out 300,000 US dollars a year.

The funds have to be remitted from an outward investment account. The limits could be exceeded by the use of capital gains.

Sri Lankan firms could in general invest any amount to set up offices or subsidiary with specific central bank approval.

Sri Lanka has exchange controls because a currency board was replaced in 1951 with a soft-pegged central bank which printed money and generated foreign exchange shortages, high inflation and currency collapses. (Colombo/Nov28/2017)

63-year old Sri Lankan stabbed to death in Staten Island, New York

Posted on 29 November 2017 by admin

Man, 27, charged in fatal stabbing of Staten Island grandmother, 63. 

By Maura Grunlund – Courtesy of Staten Island North Shore.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – Police have charged a 27-year-old man who they say fatally stabbed a grandmother in a frenzied attack on a West Brighton street, then was found cradling her body when cops arrived at the scene. Police identified the suspect as Dantey Moore, 27, of North Burgher Avenue in West Brighton. The suspect has a lengthy criminal history, mental issues and was a stranger to the victim, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation. Moore stabbed Geetha Howie, 63, more than 15 times on Monday shortly after 2 p.m. in the vicinity of Bement Avenue and Bement Court, just blocks from her home on Bement Avenue, police allege. The victim was returning home from the bank, where she was getting money for an upcoming family wedding she planned to attend in Sri Lanka, according to media reports. Moore also allegedly slashed neighbor Mark Long, 56, who ran to Howie's aid.

"He heard the cries and he wasn't sure, he thought it was kids that were hanging out," said Sandra Graydon-Long, Long's wife. "When he came out he saw two people on the ground. And then as he got closer he saw that a man was stabbing a woman." 

Long questioned the assailant and "put himself in harm's way," his wife said.  Moore "lunged at him," according to the wife.

Her husband began talking to Moore again and the man eventually dropped the knife, Graydon-Long said.

The suspect was saying "that she cheated, that she cheated with everyone"

Her husband didn't know what those words meant, said Graydon-Long.

Long was treated at the scene for a cut to his right arm.

Police charged Moore with murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

Howie was taken to Richmond University Medical Center in West Brighton with stab wounds to the face and torso, according to police.

She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The victim, who worked as a lab technician, was "an amazing woman" who was particularly close to her 3-year-old granddaughter, her son-in-law Daniel Fazzina, told the New York Daily News.

"They were just inseparable and it's just a senseless tragedy," he said. 

By Tuesday morning, blood remained splattered on the sidewalk on Bement Avenue.

Moore has about 34 prior arrests for a wide range of alleged offenses including burglary, robbery,  assault, criminal possession of drugs, criminal mischief and resisting arrest, according to a source with knowledge of the investigation.

Doctor my Legs are swollen? Written by Dr Harold Gunatillake-Health writer

Posted on 29 November 2017 by admin

Doctor my Legs are swollen?
Written by Dr Harold Gunatillake-Health writer.


Swelling of legs and feet are quite visible among women who wear sandals, especially among the seniors. It is not visible to men as they wear longs and shoes.


Dr. Harold Gunatillake

Most women are not aware of this swelling, as it is a slow process of collection of fluid in most situations, and do not bother until finding difficult to walk due to the heaviness. In certain situations, especially travelling, seated for long hours as in a flight you might get sudden swelling of feet and a concern to consult a doctor soon. This sort of swelling lasts for a few days, even at ground level, and should resolve within a few days. To prevent such quick swelling- start moving your feet around your ankles and walk down the aisle, a few times.


Swelling on the upper aspect (dorsum) of the feet and around ankles is due to too much fluid in the extracellular spaces. In most situations, there is too much of extra-cellular fluid in the whole body but is only visible in most dependent areas –below the knee extending to the feet. If neglected you may feel breathless on walking due to fluid collection in the lungs- we call, “pulmonary oedema”.


In situations where the cause is central, as in heart failure, or liver and kidney disease, both legs will swell. If one leg swells, obviously the cause is local. Sometimes, sleeping on one side continuously may gravitate the fluid to one leg and may appear unilateral masking the diagnosis.


You may be lacking proteins in your blood due to being on certain diets. Normally the sodium and water are kept within the blood vessels, and if you don’t have enough of a blood protein albumin, the fluids tend to leak out and collect in the extra-cellular spaces. In liver, kidney diseases the fluid will collect in these spaces due to lack of protein in these conditions.


In chronic kidney failure towards the ‘end-stages’ legs seem to swell due to retention of fluids, an early sign needing dialysis to rid the excess fluid accumulations.


A liver disease like cirrhosis can cause swelling of your tummy due to collection of fluid; we call it, ‘Ascites’ and swelling of legs and feet, too. The collection of fluid in your abdominal cavity is due to the obstruction to the veins (portal veins) that drains venous blood from the liver. The term, ’Portal hypertension’ is used to describe in such a situation.


The excess extra-cellular fluid is normally got rid of in the kidneys by using sodium and potassium. But having too much salt in your body retains that fluid and the kidneys may fail to rid the extra fluid. In this situation, you need to go on a salt reduced diet by cutting back on foods high in sodium. You need to lay off the salt-shaker on your dining table, and avoid eating treats like fried dry-fish with your rice and curry.


The normally functioning kidneys excrete about 100-120 quarts of fluid from the blood stream. With kidney disease protein will be lost, causing a situation called, ’Proteinuria’ meaning proteins in the urine that should not be there.


Retention of fluids and loss of protein through the kidneys can lead to oedema of legs due to both situations.


When you pass your 60th year, become breathless on walking with leg swelling, and racing heart, confusion and fatigue, the most likely condition the doctors will suspect would be heart failure. The heart muscles become weak and the pumping action is slowed.


Heart failure could be as a result of neglected high blood pressure, or a previous heart attack, or heart valvular disease, and irregular heart beating (arrhythmias).
In this situation in addition to swelling in your feet, ankles, legs, fluid collects in your lungs and abdomen, your heart will beat faster.


You need to see your doctor soon with such symptoms.
You could get localised swelling limited to one ankle after strains and fractures of ankle bones. In such an eventuality, you need to go to the out-patients casualty unit in your closest hospital for x rays and plaster immobilization. In a neglected situation, the strain could become recurrent, and the fractured bone surfaces may lead to arthritis.
When you stand or sit for long hours, gravity may pull down the fluid towards your dependant legs and ankles. This is exactly what happens during a long flight as mentioned earlier.
Hot weather also makes your ankles and feet swell mainly more due to dilatation of the minute blood vessels.
In bed-ridden patients lying down without much leg movements, a clot can form in the deep veins of your calves. Under normal circumstances with activities like brisk walking, the calf muscles work like the peripheral hearts to pump venous blood towards the heart. Clot formation in the deep veins of your leg is called ‘Deep Vein Thrombosis’ (DVT) quite a serious condition. Your doctor may strap your legs with crepe bandages or make you wear firm socks and give you intravenous heparin after admission to the hospital.
DVT can give you swelling of legs and ankles.
Several kinds of drugs can bring about leg and ankle swelling as a side effect. They include pain relievers, called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like ibuprofen, naproxen and aspirin. High blood pressure medications can give rise to leg swelling, especially the calcium inhibitor medication for the heart like amlodipine and peripheral vaso-dilators like vasopressin.
Long-term steroids and oestrogens also can give rise to legs swellings.
There are diabetes drugs and antidepressants that can make your body hold on to extra fluid, which can cause leg swelling.
During pregnancy, it is common to retain excess body fluids. This is mainly due to the changes in hormones, a temporary phenomenon that resolves after pregnancy. Such swelling may be due to a dangerous condition called preeclampsia. Alert your doctor immediately, if sudden swelling develops during pregnancy.


Lymphedema
So far the conditions mentioned for the cause of leg and feet swelling is due to the fluid collection with an excess of salt.
In this condition, if you press firmly with your thumb on oedematous area under the skin, an imprint or a dent is created. We use the word ’pitting’ to describe this sign. So the general term ‘pitting oedema’ is used.
Fluid may accumulate in your dependant areas due to stasis of lymph, too.
In addition to the blood vessels including arteries and veins, there is another circulatory system called the lymphatics. These are the invisible string like strands under your skin and deeply approximating the main blood vessels. These lymphatic paths are interrupted by glands called ‘lymphatic glands’. They are like railway stations and the lymphatic streams are like the railway lines.
These lymphatics participate in the conduction of nutrients and mainly in the defensive function of safeguarding against enemies. It forms part of the immune system in your body.
So, in lymphedema there is a build-up of lymph due to blockage or damage to the lymph system, i.e. the railway lines.
In cancer these lymphatic streams can get blocked. After surgical ablation of organs and tissues, too these lymphatic streams can get damaged and block the lymph drainage.
A good example is breast cancer where there is lymphatic blockage in the armpit, causing the many lymph nodes to become swollen and palpable. This blockage causes lymph in your arms to get blocked also, as they all drain into the lymph system in the arm-pit.
So now you can understand why women get big arms due to blockage of lymphatics after surgery.
A similar situation in the lower limbs too causes swelling of feet and legs. We call this ‘lymphedema’ of the legs. In Sri Lanka, this was quite common along the coastal regions due to a chronic inflammatory condition of the lymph caused by the filarial germ.
The legs become massive, and even the scrotal skin can get affected in men, and they become huge to sometimes the size of a football.
Swelling of legs and feet in this situation does not show signs of pitting, and hence called brawny swelling

 

Treatment
Swelling of feet and ankles may be painful, limits your joint movements, feel heavy to walk.
Initially, for any such swellings there are home remedies. RICE is an acronym that stands for rest, ice, compression, and elevation. These strategies are useful in case of an injury.
For fluid retention due to medical conditions mentioned earlier, you need to take a diuretic like Lasix to get rid of the fluid fast to feel comfortable.
Your doctor will do the necessary investigations to find the cause of swelling, and you may need life-long specialist treatment for chronic swelling of legs and feet.


Conclusions: Hope this article benefits those who suffer from chronic or recurrent swelling of your legs, and the need to see a doctor is explained.

India records huge innings and 239 run win in 2nd Test against Sri Lanka – Ashwin excels

Posted on 27 November 2017 by admin

India crushed Sri Lanka in 49.3 overs to record a huge win the 2nd Test at Nagpur. Ravichandran Ashwin became the fastest bowler in Test history to take 300 wickets to help India take a 1-0 lead in the three-match Test series against Sri Lanka. The game was over in four days with little resistance from the visitors. 

India had batted Sri Lanka out of the Nagpur Test with three of their batsmen scoring centuries but Sri Lanka were expected to give a sterner challenge to India than they did on the fourth day of the second Test. They crumbled and lost seven wickets in the first session, staring at their biggest defeat in Test cricket. That humiliation was completed when R Ashwin took his 300th Test wicket and Sri Lanka’s last of the second innings to complete India’s joint biggest Test win by an innings and 239 runs on Monday.

India 610 for 6 dec. (Kohli 213, Pujara 143, Vijay 128, Rohit 102*) beat Sri Lanka 205 (Chandimal 57, Karunaratne 51, Ashwin 4-67, Ishant 3-37, Jadeja 3-56) and 166 (Chandimal 61, Ashwin 4-63) by an innings and 239 runs.

India are yet to lose a Test series under Virat Kohli and they would like to continue this trend in South Africa, the first of many overseas tour for India next year. With India’s top two seamers in Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami rested, this performance against an spineless Sri Lankan batting was still morale boosting.

For Sri Lanka this was their biggest Test defeat and it came in an embarrassing manner with their batsmen throwing away wickets. Beginning the play with 384 runs behind India, Sri Lanka needed to bat out of their skin to save the match but India bowlers were in no mood to return on day five. 

Ravichandran Ashwin scalped Lahiru Gamage to reach this milestone in the Nagpur Test against Sri Lanka

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took 300 wickets in 54 Tests breaking Dennis Lillee's record. Dennis Lillee took 56 matches to reach the milestone. During the second Test against Sri Lanka,  Ravichandran Ashwin scalped the wicket of Lahiru Gamage to reach the milestone. In all, he took eight wickets in the match. In his 54 matches, he has given away 7520 runs with 7 for 59 being his best. His average is stupendous at 25.30 in 53 Tests. Lillee, one of the greatest fast bowlers, reached the landmark in 1981 against Pakistan in Brisbane. Sri Lanka offspinner Muttiah Muralitharan is now third, getting there in 58 Tests. Murali is the leading wicket-taker in Tests with 800 wickets.

By the time the first session ended, India were on verge of the win and the only thing Sri Lanka could have done was to avoid their biggest loss in Test cricket which was an innings and 229 runs before Monday.

The visitors had more-or-less lost the game on the first day itself after being bowled out for 208 as Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja caught them in a spin web. The same happened on day four as Jadeja began with the wicket of Dimuth Karunaratne to a freakish catch at short leg by Murali Vijay.

Lahiru Thirimanne was the next to fall as he played a wide delivery from Umesh straight to point and then Sri Lanka’s most experienced batsman Angelo Mathews fell for the flight from Jadeja, lobbing it to mid-off. 

Dasun Shanaka tried some big shots and connected a few but one such shot, off Ashwin, was skied and KL Rahul took a good catch. That was the beginning to Ashwin’s mastery on day four. He removed Dilruwan Perera and Rangana Herath in the space of three balls and with just two more wickets to go, play was extended by 15 minutes before Lunch.

But Sri Lanka went into the break 260 runs behind with two wickets in hand. India had bowled well throughout and were now being rewarded for it. Ishant Sharmaset up the dismissal of Niroshan Dickwella. He bowled short-pitched deliveries and got reverse-swing to confuse the batsmen before bowling a suprise length delivery. Dickwella edged one such delivery to slips.
