Eurozone leaders on Monday reached a “unanimous” agreement after marathon talks over a third bailout for Greece, European Union (EU) President Donald Tusk said.

He said that a bailout programme was “all ready to go” for Greece, “with serious reforms and financial support”, BBC reported.

“There will not be a ‘Grexit’ (Greek exit from the eurozone),” European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker said, referring to the fear that Greece would have to leave the euro.

“There are no winners or losers, I don’t think the Greek people have been humiliated and I don’t think other European countries have lost face,” Juncker added.

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras agreed to tough reforms after 17 hours of gruelling negotiations by eurozone leaders in return for a three-year bailout programme worth up to 86 billion euros ($96 billion), Greece’s third rescue deal in five years.

Greece is expected to pass reforms demanded by the eurozone by Wednesday.

Parliaments in several eurozone states also have to approve any new bailout.

Scientists have identified molecules in the blood that can detect dementia about two to five years before its onset, making the diagnosis of the condition -- via a simple blood test

Scientists have identified molecules in the blood that can detect dementia about two to five years before its onset, making the diagnosis of the condition -- via a simple blood test. The biomarker discovered by researchers at the DZNE and the University Medical Center Gottingen (UMG) is based on measuring levels of microRNAs -- which influence the production of proteins and thus a key process in the metabolism of every living organism.


As the technique is not yet suitable for practical use, the scientists aim to develop a simple, low-cost blood test, similar to the rapid test for SARS-CoV-2, and can be applied in routine medical care to assess dementia risk. According to the study data, presented in the scientific journal EMBO Molecular Medicine, microRNAs could potentially also be targets for dementia therapy. "When symptoms of dementia manifest, the brain has already been massively damaged. Presently, diagnosis happens far too late to even have a chance for effective treatment. If dementia is detected early, the odds of positively influencing the course of the disease increase," said Andre Fischer, Professor at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at UMG.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has finally started rolling out end-to-end encrypted chat backups for iOS and Android users globally.

Facebook-owned WhatsApp has finally started rolling out end-to-end encrypted chat backups for iOS and Android users globally. With the new update, if a user chooses to back up his chat history with end-to-end encryption, it will be accessible only to him, and no one will be able to unlock the backup. Neither WhatsApp nor the backup service provider will be able to access their end-to-end encryption backup.
"With end-to-end encrypted backups, no other messaging service at WhatsApp's scale will provide this level of security for people's messages -- from sending and transit, to receiving and storing in the cloud," the company said in a post. The feature will be rolling out "slowly" for people on the latest version of the app.
