Actress Rasika Duggal said she tries to avoid focusing on what people expect of her while bringing alive a role. She feels what matters is being invested in one’s work. “I try to not focus on delivering as per what people expect from me. I always believe that if you are invested enough in your work, the audience will be invested enough in your story. The idea is to keep myself invested and interested in the story,” Rasika told IANS.

She will soon reprise her role of Dr. Meera in the second season of the web series “Out Of Love”. Earlier, she returned in the second season of “Mirzapur”, and soon she will be seen in season two of “Delhi Crime”.

About her return on “Out Of Love”, she said: “I find season two is very fascinating. It’s a very different experience.” The actress does accept there is a certain sense of comfort when it comes to working in a known set-up.

“It’s comfortable in terms of shooting because you already have the sense of your team — if the team is the same, the framework. For example, the ‘Mirzapur’ team was largely the same, so I already knew my way around it. I knew the things which were working and ones that were not. Once all of that is dealt with, you can focus on your work rather than worrying about all those things.”.

But would the comfort factor be the same if a show went on, for several seasons? “I don’t know how I would feel if the show went on for many, many seasons. I presume there would be a point where you would get a little tired but I haven’t had that experience yet, so I can’t say, ” shared Rasika. (IANS/SP)

When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades.

The US researchers have discovered a class of immune cells that plays a role in miscarriage, which affects about a quarter of pregnancies.

Researchers at the University of California-San Francisco found that the recently discovered subset of cells known as extrathymic Aire-expressing cells in the immune system may prevent the mother's immune system from attacking the placenta and fetus.

The researchers showed that pregnant mice who did not have this subset of cells were twice as likely to miscarry, and in many of these pregnancies fetal growth was severely restricted.

"When you're pregnant, the immune system is seeing the placenta for the first time in decades -- not since the mother made a placenta when she herself was a fetus," said Eva Gillis-Buck, from UCSF.

"Our research suggests that this subset of immune cells is carrying out a sort of 'secondary education' -- sometimes many years after the better-known population of the educator cells have carried out the primary education in the thymus -- teaching T cells not to attack the fetus, the placenta and other tissues involved in pregnancy," she added. The findings are published in the journal Science Immunology.

It's not surprising that over half of those surveyed feel more comfortable using emojis than talking on the phone or in person.

The tiny emojis being shared on billions of devices worldwide can play a major role in digital communication, with most people saying that emoji compels them to feel more empathy towards others, according to an Adobe report.

Adobe's global emoji study found that emoji even helps people overcome language barriers and form connections that would otherwise be difficult to do.

"We were surprised and delighted by the discoveries made in the survey, most notably how enthusiastic respondents were for emoji as a means to express themselves," the company said in a statement.

Emojis sometimes get criticized for being overly saccharine, but this sweetness is key when it comes to diffusing some of the heaviness of online communication.

"Many of the emoji are focused on positive emotions, so it's easy to insert them into our conversations and lighten the mood," the Adobe study said.
