(Source: Reuters) Top News Reigning champion Asbel Kiprop led a powerful trio of Kenyans into Sunday’s 1500 metres final at the World Athletics Championships giving himself the chance of shooting for a fourth successive gold medal in the metric mile event The 28-year-old Kiprop seeking to equal the record of four successive titles set by Morocco’s world record holder Hicham El Guerrouj kept out of trouble on the wide outside before sprinting home a comfortable second in a robust heat on Friday He followed home his compatriot Elijah Manangoi the fastest man in the world this year who ran a controlled race to win the opening semi-final in 3 minutes 4010 seconds four-hundredths of a second clear of the onrushing Kiprop “I have a lot of experience from world championship races I’ve been doing this for many years and I’m ready for anything” said Kiprop after doing well to steer clear of the familiar rough-and-tumble of a competitive battle following a slow first lap “It was very tactical today but there was a lot of pushing so I stayed at the back to stay out of trouble I knew I had the speed in my legs over the last lap but I just waited for my moment to ease through and qualify” Manangoi said he had better than in the heats “Today was a lot more tactical” he said “I want any medal but gold would be the one I would love I know my countryman Kiprop will be strong but it’s a championship and anything can happen” Timothy Cheruiyot the second quickest metric miler of 2017 set the pace in the second semi-final to ensure that not just the first five would qualify automatically but also the two fast losers from the heat He controlled the race only easing up at the finish in 3:3824 with qualification secure as Czech Jakub Holusa the 2015 European indoor champion came through to pip him for first in 3:3805 and become the fastest qualifier for Sunday’s final The big casualty was the fourth Kenyan national champion Ronald Kwemoi third fastest on 2017 form who trailed home ninth behind Holusa “This will be my premiere in the final my dream came true” said Holusa whose fast finish could make him a danger in a slow final “After a long time the Czech Republic

BJP workers in Assam that India will go ahead with the ratification of the land boundary agreement with Bangladesh Prime Minister Narendra Modi has put the imperatives of national interest above the regional populism of his own party The land boundary agreement signed in Dhaka by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in September 2011 involves rationalisation of the messy boundary that India inherited from the partition of the Subcontinent Since it involves the ‘exchange’ of territories the agreement required an amendment to the Constitution The 119th amendment bill was placed in the Rajya Sabha late last year amidst vociferous opposition from the Trinamool Congress of Bengal and the Asom Gana Parishad in Assam While the national leadership of the BJP did not oppose the tabling of the bill it signaled ambivalence given the opposition from the party unit in Assam Much of the debate in Bengal and Assam about the agreement has been ill-informed The agreement deals with tiny enclaves owned by one country but left inside the territory of the other at the time of Partition This led to the tragedy of many people being left state-less and unable to access the benefits of development from either state These enclaves have also become major sources of criminal activity Delhi and Dhaka rightly decided to exchange these enclaves after a survey of opinion in these enclaves–India would ‘cede’ 111 enclaves amounting to about 17160 acres and ‘gain’ 57 enclaves spread over 7110 acres from the other The loss and gain of territory here is entirely notional for neither side was in control of these enclaves that they owned in theory since 1947 The overwhelming sentiment among people trapped in these enclaves is to stay put where they are rather than move to the other country While the Congress government in Assam supported the agreement the Trinamool AGP and the BJP played political football by raising concerns about ‘loss’ of territory Modi affirmed that the territorial swap with Bangladesh is in the interests of the nation He also promised the people of Assam that Delhi will address their concerns on illegal immigration from Bangladesh By framing an argument that limits the tension between ‘national’ and ‘regional’ interests Modi has set the stage for the parliament’s approval of the 119th Constitution Amendment Bill The standing committee on external affairs had recently cleared the bill and the government is expected to seek approval of the two houses India’s ratification of this agreement will mark a comprehensive territorial settlement of its longest land border At 4060 km India’s boundary with Bangladesh is longer than those with China and Pakistan Having a settled boundary will now allow Delhi and Dhaka to consider effective management the border–through more intensive cooperation on countering terrorism and extremism facilitating trade across this long frontier building trans-border industrial corridors and preventing illegal movement of people Constructing a border of cooperation with Bangladesh should liberate India from one of major geopolitical constraints imposed on it by the Partition of Bengal When he travels to Dhaka in the

leading cause of treatment-related non-tumour deaths among survivors of childhood cancer breast cancer and Hodgkin lymphoma The study showed that cancer survivors diagnosed at ages 15 to 19 had 42 times higher risk of death from heart diseases compared to the general population of similar age and gender Survivors who were 35 to 39 years of age at cancer diagnosis had 12 times higher risk of death from heart disease compared to the general population of similar age and gender “The study is important for clinicians because it helps them focus the most intensive follow-up care on those most at risk” said Mike Hawkins Professor at the University of Birmingham in Britain It is important for survivors because it empowers them by providing them with their long-term chances of survival the study said The significance of age at diagnosis was most apparent for survivors of Hodgkin lymphoma — cancer of the lymphatic system Survivors of Hodgkin lymphoma experienced 38 times the risk of death from heart diseases than expected from members of the general population of similar age and gender Survivors of other types of cancer also had a higher than expected risk of death from heart

only American institution to be accused of buying art of dubious origin In recent yearsthe Metropolitan Museum of Art in New Yorkthe Museum of Fine ArtsBostonand the Princeton University Art Museum have all returned contested works of art Even when museums have the best of intentionssome of the works they buy have passed through the hands of underground suppliers Its hard for museums to avoid the black market partly because there is so little legitimate excavation going on that can yield new finds Sadlywhen an object is taken from its original site without documentationcontext is lost And in archaeologycontext is everything: it tells us an objects ageits likely place of manufacture and its everyday use This lack of information makes it harder for collectors to determine if an object is fakewhile even authentic worksin the absence of the context of their discoverybecome mute witnesses to our irresponsible acquisitiveness But there is one thing museums could do that would put looters and smugglers out of business while uncovering more of the worlds cultural treasures at far lower cost: excavate archaeological sites themselves Today this might seem a strange ideabut its exactly what museums like the Louvre and the British Museum did in the 19th century Of courseback then there was no distinction between possession and ownershipand many countries lost significant pieces of their heritage as a result Eventuallymuseums could no longer act this way In Italyfor examplea law passed in 1909 subjected all archaeological finds to government regulationwhile later laws made new finds the property of the state So todays museums cantand shouldntgo back to the 19th-century model But they could create partnerships with the states where we know these promising archaeological sites exist to sponsor excavations and to help provide proper scientific oversight when artifacts are unearthed Excavation is the lifeblood of archaeology Without itmuseums can only recycle exhibitions of well-known masterpieces And despite two centuries of diggingmuch more remains to be discovered than has yet been found If only ownership could be separated from possessionthen museums might strike a deal with countries like Greece and Italy Heres how it would work: The countries of origin would own anything that was excavated there and keep most of the finds on display in local partnering museums But the museum that sponsored the dig would be allowed to borrow a percentage of the finds and exhibit them Eventuallyall the finds from a site would be exchanged on a rotating basis between the country of origin and the museumwhich would pay the expenses and insurance Where should museums and investors begin Welltheres the tomb of Antiochus of Commagene at Mount Nemrut in southeast Turkey Farther afield one could add Pataliputra in Indiareputed to be the most populous city in the world in the third century BC; or the tomb of Qin Shi HuangChinas first emperor Qin erected thousands of realistic terra-cotta statues around his tomb; these Xian Warriors have been famous since they were first discovered in 1974 But the excavations have thus far touched only a smallperipheral part of the site Even the famous Pompeii remains a mysterywith a third of the city still underground Finds from these sites and the scores more like them around the world have filled many rooms in our museums and have contributed enormously to our understanding of everyday life in antiquityyet we have much more to learn Its not too late for museums to start digging BERNARD
