A new study from India’s animated news creator Bisbo, on Sunday, revealed that 80 per cent of their 10 million strong users are adults between the age of 18-44.

According to Bisbo, the content industry also includes mixed medium industries like mobile-based short news creators and animation.

While mainstream news has been giving space to scripted toons for long, few have used these as the main, storytelling medium.

From left-side cartoon boxes in newspapers to 2-min, 3-D political capsules — these cartoons have a curio value in newspapers and news channels.

“There is an increasing amount of 2D animation content for adults — one where the chosen topics resonate with them and their lives. Our chosen type of content is animated news, the merging of current affairs with a friendly format.

“People today don’t have time for repetitive footage as in TV or the patience to read column centimetres of print. Bisbo’s solution for that is to present news and current affairs in the animated format in such a way that viewers never get bored watching the videos and end up learning about something new every time they watch a video on Bisbo’s channel,” said Shakir Ebrahim, Founder of GoBisbo Broadcasting Network Pvt. Ltd.

News is created every day, as videos for Bisbo are based on the topics for the day, they have a steady source of information.

The team takes topics from the events of the day, researches them and then prepares a script that is visually compelling, yet easily understandable.

The network is capturing a lot of users’ attention on YouTube.

It regularly clocks a watch time of over 50 million minutes a month, on just 50 minutes of original animated content created in the same period. (IANS)

Even Short-term ‘Vaping’ can Cause Inflammation, Says Study

With the recent reports of lung disease and deaths associated with vaping, the effects of vaping nicotine and marijuana oils makes this research more critical, said the researchers

E-cigarette use has risen at concerning levels among both smokers and non-smokers and now researchers from the Ohio State University have found that even short-term vaping could cause cellular inflammation in never-smoker adults.

Using a procedure called bronchoscopy to test for inflammation and smoking-related effects, researchers reported a measurable increase in inflammation after four weeks of e-cigarette use without nicotine or flavours.

The study suggested that even short-term usage could result in inflammatory changes at a cellular level.

“Through the randomised clinical trial of healthy never-smokers over a month, we found that an increase in urinary propylene glycol, a marker of inhalation-e-cig intake, was significantly correlated with increased inflammatory response in the lung,” said the study’s first author Min-Ae Song from Ohio State University.

For the study, researchers recruited 30 healthy, non-smoking volunteers to directly assess the impact of tobacco and e-cig use on the lungs through bronchoscopy, an outpatient test in which a doctor inserts a thin tube through the nose or mouth to view the airways.

A small sample of lung cells was collected from fluid in the lungs.

Participants were randomised to a four-week intervention with e-cigs containing only 50 per cent propylene glycol (PG) or 50 per cent vegetable glycerine (VG) without nicotine or flavours.

Results from these tests were then compared to a separate control group of never-smokers.

Researchers did not see levels of inflammation higher than the controls, but there was an increase in inflammation among the users who inhaled more of the e-cigarette.

With the recent reports of lung disease and deaths associated with vaping, the effects of vaping nicotine and marijuana oils makes this research more critical, said the researchers. (IANS)
