On behalf of McGrath Foundation, he presented NSW Acting Police Commissioner with a signed cricket bat and a written message on it to them, for their support of the McGrath Foundation and Cricket.

Appreciation from his home land was not to be missed out as well. Manu received an award of honour from the Government of India Ministry of Culture for his work as an Ambassador for Cricket Connects.
What did someone who loves cricket so much do with bat and ball? Manu played cricket and was undergoing coaching, returning home after long hours at the camps. Losing his father at age 13, and being the only child, he couldn’t bear to see his mother alone at home for long hours. Young Manu decided to finish school and be home on time, which limited his time for cricket on a personal front. And other highlights/key events of the Manu Singh journey, in the last three decades?
Donated his celebrity signed cricket bats for auction at Khalsa Aid fundraising events is Sydney and Melbourne and raised AUD 250,000 for natural disasters in two days. The intent was to be a role model, and reach out to the worldwide community to make a difference by bringing the Australian and Indian communities together through cricket; to help spread Khalsa Aid’s message of recognising the whole human race as one; and in doing so motivate
and inspire the community to reach out and help the needy.

As a McGrath Foundation volunteer, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball tweeted a picture of him and Manu at the 2017 Pink Day Test. The message was to demonstrate support for this great cause of McGrath Foundation, celebrating the lives of breast cancer patients, represent Sikhism positively to the world and demonstrate how multicultural communities contribute to the success of Australia.
At every Pink Test he celebrates the occasion by wearing a pink turban and pink themed outfit. The Daily Telegraph published a picture of Manu in his pink turban with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball at the Pink Test.

Has participated in the Anzac Day Parade for the last four years, marching under the banner of the Sikh Regiments of WW1 and WW2 to commemorate those who served in the world wars The Sikh Regiment group. This is to remind the Australian community of the Indian Army’s contribution in the World Wars; it helped show a true bonding, mateship and respect between Australians, young and old, and the Sikhs; helped remember the Sikh Anzacs and to reflect on their courage and service for others; this was important because the Sikhs played a major role in Gallipoli alongside the Anzacs, but this is often forgotten.
The above endeavour is especially important because turban wearing people were denied entry to The Returned and Services League, Australia (RSL) clubs in the 1980s and 1990s. and there was a greater need to spread information about the contributions of Indian and Sikh soldiers.
Manu has been working with the RSL Secretary to honour the Sikh War heroes.
His favourite international cricketing moment? Manu Singh swapped his native Indian colours for something special in support of the mighty West Indies during their 2015 tour to Australia just before the World Cup. Joining the Windies during their practice session at the SCG as a net bowler, not only was it the team who he was showing his support to, but also a Caribbean legend of the game. Recalling, Manu says “I went to the SCG during their [West Indies] practice session with my best mate Scott Holda, and after the session, I went to shake hands with the Big Black Cat, Sir Clive Lloyd. After telling him that I am supporting the Windies, I asked him if I could tie a special red maroon turban, and explained the significance of it. As he was a role model of Indian cricket legend
Bishan Singh Bedi, Clive was delighted about the idea. I tied the turban and he said that he loved it. We then talked about cricket for about an hour. On this New Year’s Day, it was one of the greatest experiences of my life.”
An eligible bachelor with a string of awesome achievements for someone so young, Manu spends time at this adopted country and also regularly visits India to be with his mother.
No wonder, “God” Tendulkar himself deemed it fit to wish the young achiever the very best on his 30 th birthday!! More strength to his wonderful human being who lives for the needy!!]]>

The company said Tuesday that it is adding a section where you can see the activity that Facebook tracks outside its service via its “like” buttons and other means. You can choose to turn off the tracking; otherwise, tracking will continue the same way it has been.
Formerly known as “clear history,” the tool will now go by the slightly clunkier moniker “off-Facebook activity.” The feature launches in South Korea, Ireland and Spain on Tuesday, consistent with Facebook’s tendency to launch features in smaller markets first. The company did not give a timeline for when it might expand it to the US and other countries, only that it will be in “coming months.]]>

The researchers found out about a certain protein for maintaining wounds and said that if its effects could be reversed then it could help in healing wounds diabetes of inpatient rehab.“We discovered that a specific protein, thrombospondin-2 (TSP2), is elevated in wounds of patients with diabetes as well as in animal models of diabetes,” said Britta Kunkemoeller, one of the researchers.“To determine whether TSP2 contributes to delayed wound healing, we genetically removed TSP2 from a mouse model of diabetes and observed improved wound healing. Our study shows that TSP2 could be a target for a specific therapy for diabetic wounds,” she said.
Most of the work done before on diabetes wound healing had focussed on the kinds of cells which are involved in the healing of wounds such as immune cells, skin cells and the cells which form blood vessels. Compared to that, Kunkemoeller’s research focuses on TSP2, a component of the extracellular matrix.Along with giving structural support according to beverlyhillsveininstitute.com, the extracellular matrix helps in regulating processes which are imperative for wound healing, including the behaviour of immune, skin and vessel-forming cells.]]>

Some of these satellites are significant for strategic reasons as they will help the military keep an eye on our hostile neighbours and safeguard our land and sea borders.
Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch a dedicated satellite, Gsat-7A, for the Indian Air Force (IAF) in September and an advanced remote sensing satellite, Risat-2A, for surveillance purpose by the end of the year.
Gsat-7A, which will be lifted by a GSLV Mk II rocket, will enable the IAF to interlink different ground radar stations, airbases and AWACS aircraft. It will also boost the IAF’s network-centric warfare capabilities and enhance its global operations.
The satellite will be similar to Gsat-7 or Rukmini, which was launched on September 29, 2013, exclusively for the Navy. Rukmini has helped the Navy monitor the Indian Ocean Region (IOR) as the satellite has a nearly 2,000 nautical mile ‘footprint’ and provides real-time inputs to Indian warships, submarines and maritime aircraft and also boosts the force’s networking capabilities on the high seas. Rukmini, considered the Navy’s ‘eye in the sky’, is also being used to keep tabs on Chinese warships in the Indian Ocean.
Risat-2A, which will be launched by the end of this year by a PSLV rocket, is an advanced remote sensing satellite that will boost the country’s surveillance capabilities.]]>
