Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Triptii Dimri shared the photos and captioned the post, “New Year’s photo dump.” (Also Read | Did Tripti Dimri make her relationship Insta official with Anushka Sharma’s brother Karnesh Ssharma?)

In one of the photos, Triptii clicked a selfie as she posed with Karnesh and Saurabh Malhotra. They smiled while posing for the camera. While Triptii opted for a black sweater and pants under a pink jacket, Karnesh was seen in a black hoodie and pants. One of the pictures also featured the duo releasing a sky lantern together as they looked up.

In the video, Triptii sang the song Ghodey Par Sawaar, from her latest film Qala, in a mic as she stood in front of the camera. A person played the guitar while another person clapped standing nearby. A few people also cheered for Triptii. Karnesh stood at a distance from Triptii and recorded her performance on his phone.

A few pictures also showed Triptii in a swimming pool, sitting on a chair next to it wrapped in towels, and having tea. She also clicked a selfie as she spend time laying on a mat enjoying the sun. Triptii also read a book as she lay outdoors. The actor also clicked a few selfies with a bungalow in the background.

Triptii was recently seen in Qala, produced by Karnesh under his banner Clean Slate Filmz. Recently, a photo emerged online in which the duo hugged each other. Triptii and Karnesh have both been linked to each other several times. However, neither of them ever confirmed their relationship.

Qala, set in the late 1930s and early 1940s, is the story of a young playback singer. Apart from Triptii, the film also features Swastika Mukherjee, Babil Khan, Amit Sial, Neer Raao, Avinash Raj Sharma and Ashish Singh. The psychological drama is directed by Anvitaa Dutt. Tripti previously appeared in Netflix’s Bulbbul (2020), which was produced by Karnesh.

Prince Harry’s memoir ‘Spare’:His relationship with Prince William, more to know ahead of release


"Spare," Prince Harry's memoir is an object of obsessive anticipation worldwide since it was first announced last year.

By Prince Harry (Random House, nonfiction)

What it’s about: Rarely does a book have us hooked with just its title, but Prince Harry’s evocatively titled memoir, an apparent reference to his being the royal family’s “spare” heir, promises to be a scintillating personal account.

The buzz: The book has been kept under lock and key, but in an interview with Anderson Cooper for “60 Minutes” last week, Prince Harry said, “When we’re being told for the last six years, ‘We can’t put a statement out to protect you.’ But you do it for other members of the family … There becomes a point when silence is betrayal.”

Fungi that cause serious lung infections are now found throughout the U.S

Doctors should be on the lookout for the organisms, researchers say

Three types of fungi that cause serious lung infections and were once thought to be confined to certain regions of the United States are now widespread.

In 1955, Histoplasma fungi grew mainly in Midwest soil and in parts of the East and South, and that’s where histoplasmosis infections mainly occurred. But Medicare records from 2007 through 2016 indicate that 47 states and Washington, D.C., had cases of histoplasmosis above a certain threshold, researchers report November 11 in Clinical Infectious Diseases.

Histoplasmosis cases, then vs. now

In 1955, Histoplasma fungi caused lung infections mainly in the eastern half of the United States.

Medicare records from 2007 through 2016 show that the fungi have spread, causing infection rates above a certain threshold in 47 states and Washington, D.C.

These fungi are now “a lot more common than we think they are,” says Andrej Spec, an infectious diseases doctor and mycologist at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

Doctors using maps from the 1950s and ’60s may fail to diagnose infections in patients who live outside of the fungi’s historical borders. Such missed or delayed diagnoses can have deadly consequences.

Spec and colleagues drew updated maps for Histoplasma cases and for two other fungi whose ranges have expanded, probably because of climate change.

Coccidioidomycosis cases, caused by Coccidioides fungi, have spread from their 1955 roots in the Southwest to 35 states, Medicare records indicate. Coccidioides includes fungi that cause valley fever (SN: 11/29/21). Wildfires have been linked to a rise in valley fever cases in recent years (SN: 4/13/21).

Coccidioidomycosis cases, then vs. now

In 1955, cases of the lung infection coccidioidomycosis, caused by Coccidioides fungi, occurred mainly in the Southwest.

From 2007 through 2016, 35 states reported cases above a certain threshold, Medicare records indicate.

Like HistoplasmaBlastomyces was primarily found in the Midwest and East in 1955. But from 2007 through 2016, 40 states reported blastomycosis cases above a certain threshold, the researchers found.

Blastomycosis cases, then vs. now

In 1955, cases of the lung infection blastomycosis, caused by Blastomyces fungi, occurred mainly in the Midwest and East.

A new analysis of Medicare records reveals that from 2007 through 2016, 40 states reported blastomycosis cases above a certain threshold.

When diagnosing infections, doctors are taught to look for horses, not zebras, meaning tests typically focus on common infectious organisms, not rare ones, Spec says. “We’ve talked about these [fungi] as zebras … but they’re not zebras. They’re Clydesdales. Clydesdales aren’t the most common horse you’ll see, but they’re still horses.”

He hopes the updated maps encourage doctors to test for the fungi more often in patients with lung infections.

Under pressure: what will 2023 hold for the health and care system?

It goes without saying that this is an exceptionally difficult time for many that work in, or rely on, health and care services in England. Does 2023 hold out hope of something better?

Everywhere patients look there are simply too few services with too little capacity to treat and support them in a timely manner.

For the next few months there are probably few in the health and care sector that will be able to do anything other than simply get through the day. Everywhere patients look there are simply too few services with too little capacity to treat and support them in a timely manner. This is despite the increases in staff numbers that we have seen in some quarters – acute hospital nurses for example – as difficulties in discharging patients back into the community alongside a raft of other pressures eats up capacity. Those other pressures still include Covid-19, as the latest wave begins to increase hospital admissions and bed usage even if not (yet) on the scale of the 2020 and 2021 waves. To complete an already bleak picture, industrial action has reached the NHS as it has so many avenues of life in England.

This means that coping with operational challenges are going to dominate the early part of the year for the health and care sector. If some combination of extra money (the Chancellor was relatively generous to social care in the Autumn Statement) and the arrival of warmer weather doesn’t ease some of the pressures then they risk dominating the whole year. This includes the Department of Health and Social Care, as the new(ish) Secretary of State seems keen to get involved in performance management and may bring the senior leadership of NHS England into his Victoria Street offices to make this all the easier. However, though there are real shortages of some of the building blocks of healthcare (staff, medicines), there is no shortage of performance management and adding in any more is unlikely to make any positive difference.

Integrated care boards (ICBs) and integrated care partnerships (ICPs) were established in July this year and have been born into the most difficult of times. For many, their ways of working and cultures are still new and 2023 will continue to map out how they will work (recognising that there is a lot of variation across the country – something we must remember the NHS asked for). This is important business and there are challenges. On one side the deep performance challenges in the system may draw them into being simply another layer of performance management. With so many visible challenges in the acute sector they may also end up side-lined as the day-to-day business goes on between the centre and trusts. However, neither of these outcomes is inevitable and ICBs can still bring together the broad range of health and care stakeholders and try to carve out some space amid all the noise to focus on integration, population health and inequalities – those longer-term agendas that may help the service get off the treadmill it is currently on.

One of the early signs of how this structure will develop will come from the Hewitt Review. Led by former Labour Secretary of State Patricia Hewitt (now an ICB Chair), the review will look to ensure ICBs have the space to deliver on their original intention and hopefully, hold back some of the (excessive) national asks that can so limit their room for manoeuvre.

If the Hewitt Review does hold out some hope of a better balance between the centre and local areas, so too does the long (long, long) awaited Workforce Plan from NHS England and Health Education England also hold out hope that finally the national workforce crisis will be grasped, if admittedly only for health as it excludes social care. Of course a plan is just the first step and implementation will take time. But it is a critical first step and its absence has held back the co-ordinated, system-wide action that the workforce crisis has long cried out for.

Given all the pressures in the system, 2022 also saw a louder chorus of voices beginning to question the future of the NHS. This included comparisons to social insurance systems as run in some European countries or raising the possibility of charging for seeing a GP. Given the pressures are unlikely to evaporate anytime soon and equally, given that we are moving towards a general election, 2023 is likely to see more of this probing of the fundamentals of the NHS. Until any of these more radical ideas can show how they would actually help overcome the problems faced by health and care it is unlikely that they will amount to anything more concrete. Probably more important, we can also expect to see the political parties beginning to hone down their strategies for health and care as they develop their manifestos for the next general election. Pessimists will fear the risk that the electioneering may get unpleasant if politicians are tempted to try a little manager-bashing. Optimists may hope that the need to attract the electorate will push the parties to genuinely confront the deep and long-term challenges we face.
