New York, March 11, 2017: The widow of Harnish Patel, an Indian-origin businessman who was shot dead outside his home in South Carolina, has made a plea for “selflessness and love” to honour his memory.

“To honour the memory of Harnish, please continue to demonstrate selflessness and love to one another each and every day,” Sonal Patel said in a statement on Thursday to the local daily, Lancaster News.

Harnish Patel’s brother, Nirav said that Sonal was staying strong and focused getting her and her son’s lives back to as normal as possible, the daily reported.

Harnish Patel, who immigrated to the US in 2003, ran a convenience store. He was shot on March 2 when he reached his house in Lancaster, South Carolina, after closing the store.

As for the motive behind his killing, Nirav Patel told the Lancaster News: “We just don’t know. Nobody knows yet.”

The family was “very good friends with the law enforcement community, and they trust them completely. Right now, we’re just letting them do their job,” he added.

Meanwhile, Doug Barfield, a lawyer for the sheriff’s office, told the daily that a full team of investigators were working on the case with the help of state law enforcement agents.

Many people were interviewed but no arrests so far. (IANS)

Getting naughty under the sheets as well as remaining emotionally attached to romantic partners in old age may not be linked to declining in memory skills, finds a study.

Although lifestyle factors, level of education, smoking and drinking habits and physical activity all play a role in the rate and extent of the age-related cognitive decline, the study now shows that there is no link between sexual activity and rate of cognitive decline.

“Decline in memory performance over time was unrelated to sexual activity or emotional closeness during partnered sexual activity,” said Mark Allen of the University of Wollongong in Australia.

For the study, published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, the team used data from more than 6,000 adults aged 50 and over.

Participants completed an episodic memory task and a questionnaire where they reported the frequency of intimate activities such as kissing, sexual touching, and intercourse.

Allen found an overall decline in all participants’ score on the memory test over time.

Further, the study builds on previous experimental work that showed sexual activity enhances elderly rodents’ ability to recognize objects and, therefore, ultimately their episodic memory workings and overall brain health.

It stimulated the growth of neurons in the hippocampus, a part of the brain that is activated when episodic and spatial memory tasks are performed. (IANS)
