Islamabad, June 20: As many as twenty two students of the City University of Science and Information Technology, Peshawar, belonging to Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) were extended scholarships here to help them pursue higher education.

Seven of the students provided scholarships were from Khyber Agency, five each from Momand Agency and Kurram Agency, two from Bajaur Agency where as one each student belonged to North Waziristan Agency, South Waziristan Agency and Orakzai Agency.

The scholarships were provided by Khushhali Bank Limited (KBL) at a function. With the inclusion of 22 more scholarships, the total scholarships to the university's Fata students reach to 67.

Khushhali Bank's Scholarship Programme was launched in the year 2005. KBL has so far extended 290 scholarships to capable and deserving candidates in prestigious universities of the country.

Speaking at the scholarship certificate distribution ceremony, Syed Zahid Raza, Head Human Resources, Khushhali Bank, who also awarded the scholarships to the deserving students, said that the KHB scholarship programme was aimed at providing underprivileged students of society opportunity to acquire quality education.

He stressed the need for promotion of merit and quality education to promote good governance in the country.

Computer injuries on rise, youth most at risk: study
Islamabad: Blurry vision and wrist pain are among the well-known health perils of computer use, but a study shows a rise in previously overlooked injuries due to computer equipment falling over.

Researchers found a 732 per cent rise in `acute computer-related injuries' from 1994 through 2006, double the 309 per cent increase in household computer ownership over the period, according to a study in the July issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, BBC Radio reported.

Young children are particularly at risk, it said. Data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System database showed that over 78,000 such injuries, including large numbers of head injuries due to toppling computer monitors, were treated in US emergency rooms in the 13 year period. Children under five had the highest injury rate, with the most common cause being tripping or falling, according to researchers from Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Older children under 10 and seniors over age 60 also had elevated injury rates. "Future research on acute computer-related injuries is needed as this ubiquitous product becomes more intertwined in our everyday lives," Lara McKenzie of the hospital's Centre for Injury Research and Policy said in a statement.

Monitor-related injuries surged in the first years of the study, from 11.6 per cent of cases in 1994 to a peak of 37.1 per cent in 2003. By 2006 the figure had dropped to 25.1 per cent, as heavier cathode ray tube monitors were steadily replaced with lighter and easier-to-lift liquid crystal display monitors.
