Pluto and Scorpio
Unlike Mercury, Pluto rules only one sign, Scorpio. Like Virgos, Scorpios are singularly focused on success and seeing the job through to the end they desire. Interestingly, Scorpios also share a similar energy characteristic of Geminis; they are both known for their social, charismatic tendencies.

Dementia cases are expected to rise by over 150 million by 2050, which is about three times more than in 2019, suggests a new study.
The study, published in The Lancet Public Health journal, indicated that the number of people with dementia would increase from 57.4 million cases globally in 2019 to 152.8 million cases in 2050.
"We estimated that there were more women with dementia than men with dementia globally in 2019 and we expect this pattern to continue to 2050," according to the study.
Globally, the number of people affected by dementia was estimated to have increased by 117 per cent between 1990 and 2016, largely due to population aging.
Demographic analyses suggest that these patterns are driven by decreases in fertility coupled with increases in life expectancy, which together lead to large changes in the age structure of the population.
These changes, along with largely stable age-specific prevalence estimates and population growth, lead to large increases in the number of people affected by dementia.
Given that these demographic trends are expected to continue into the future, the number of people with dementia will continue to rise, the study said.
Additionally, evidence has emerged supporting the importance of potentially modifiable risk factors for dementia.
The 2020 update to the Lancet Commission on dementia prevention, intervention and care highlighted the evidence for 12 modifiable risk factors for dementia -- low education, hypertension, hearing impairment, smoking, midlife obesity, depression, physical inactivity, diabetes, social isolation, excessive alcohol consumption, head injury and air pollution.

Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday said that the New Education Policy (NEP) follows the 'Nai Talim' (new education) of Mahatma Gandhi by giving importance to the mother tongue as the medium of instruction at school level.
Addressing the Silver Jubilee Celebrations of Mahatma Gandhi International Hindi University, Wardha, the Vice President recalled that the 'Nai Talim' proposed by Mahatma Gandhi in Wardha in 1937 laid emphasis on making mother tongue as the medium of instruction in addition to free compulsory education and skill training to the students.
"Our Constituent Assembly, after a long debate, accepted Hindi as the official language and also accorded constitutional status to other Indian languages in the eighth schedule. Noting that every Indian language has a glorious history and rich literature. We are fortunate to have linguistic diversity in our country. Our linguistic diversity is our strength as our languages symbolise our cultural unity," Naidu said.
Referring to Mahatma Gandhi's views on language, he said that for Mahatma Gandhi, the question of language was a question of national unity. "Even after insisting on Hindi, Mahatma Gandhi understood the sensitivity of every citizen to his mother tongue. Gandhiji associated mother tongue with Swaraj and called for according due importance to it," he said.

He also said that Indian languages have played an important role in keeping the overseas Indian community connected with the motherland India, he observed.
The Vice President said that it is expected of a civilised society that its language should be gentle, cultured and creative. "Let us exercise our freedom of expression with the decency of language and the discipline of words," he said.
Describing our linguistic diversity as the strength of the country, the Vice President urged to strengthen this thread of unity in diversity and stressed the need for enhanced dialogue between Indian languages.
He suggested the language departments of universities play an important role in this regard. "There should be constant contact and intellectual dialogue between the language departments of the universities," he said.
The Vice President also unveiled the statue of the architect of the Constitution, Babasaheb Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar. The Vice President also inaugurated Atal Bihari Vajpayee Bhawan and Chandrashekhar Azad Hostel in the university as part of its Silver Jubilee celebrations. (IANS/JB)
