State-run banks need Rs 1.2 trillion in urgent capital: Crisil

MUMBAI: State-run lenders require an urgent Rs 1.2 trillion in capital in the next five months and government will have to take a bulk of the tab due to the weak market valuations of these NPA-saddled banks, says report. This is a little more than double the budgeted Rs 53,000-crore of capital infusion for the current fiscal year, Crisil senior director Krishnan Sitaraman said in a report Tuesday. If government decides to meet this need, this will put further pressure on the fiscal maths, thus its ability to meet the 3.3 percent fiscal deficit target for the current fiscal year. Already government has used up over 95 per cent of the deficit target or the market borrowings as of October end. The report comes even as government is asking the Reserve Bank to lower the minimum capital requirem...

Everything you need to know about Dsuvia, a new opioid drug

Health
An average of 115 Americans dies every day from an opioid overdose, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Yet, despite a saturation of opioid drugs already on the market and a nation in the midst of an opioid crisis, a Food and Drug Administration advisory committee voted in favor of approving a new opioid, called Dsuvia, earlier this month. It’s worth noting that the advisory panel’s vote does not mean that the drug has been FDA-approved. The FDA is expected to make its final recommendation on the drug by Nov. 3. However, experts have already weighed in to oppose the drug, including at least one senator and one member of the advisory board. If you haven't heard of Dsuvia before, here are some things you should know. Dsuvia is a tablet form of sufent...

My son was finally diagnosed with acute flaccid myelitis, now I need more answers

Editor's Note: This essay is a firsthand account written by Amber Allen, the mother of Cooper. It was Aug. 7, and we were about to leave for our last family trip of the summer. As my husband and I finished packing up the car for a family trip, our 13-year-old son Cooper complained of a headache and a sore, stiff neck. He was lethargic and had a fever. "He must be coming down with a something," I thought. Nothing that warranted canceling our plans, I reassured myself.
