Dinosaurs are a diverse group of reptiles[note 1]of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic period, between 243 and 233.23 million years ago,[1][2] although the exact origin and timing of the evolution of dinosaurs is the subject of active research.[3]They became the dominant terrestrial vertebrates after the Triassic–Jurassic extinction event 201 million years ago; their dominance continued through the Jurassicand Cretaceous periods. Reverse genetic engineering[4] and the fossil record both demonstrate that birds are modern feathered dinosaurs,[5] having evolved from earlier theropods during the late Jurassic Period.[6]As such, birds were the only dinosaur lineage to survive the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event 66 million years ago.[7]Dinosaurs can therefore be divided into avian dinosaurs, or birds; and non-avian dinosaurs, which are all dinosaurs other than birds. This article deals primarily with non-avian dinosaurs.


The unicorn is a legendary creature that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a single large, pointed, spiraling hornprojecting from its forehead. The unicorn was depicted in ancient seals of the Indus Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers, including CtesiasStraboPliny the Younger, and Aelian.[1] The Bible also describes an animal, the re’em, which some versions translate as unicorn.[1]

Measles and Rubella Vaccination Campaign

Measles and Rubella Vaccination Campaign

India as a part of its global effort has resolved to eliminate Measles and control Rubella/
Congenital Rubella Syndrome by 2020.
In this direction Ministry of Health and Family Welfare has initiated MR (Measles Rubella)
Vaccination Campaign in the age group of 9 months to 15 years in a phased manner
across the Nation.
This campaign has been conducted in 19 states and more than 9 crores children have
been vaccinated. Maharashtra state would be part of the campaign now.
As a part of this vaccination campaign, TMC Health Department in collaboration with
the Education and ICDS department is implementing the MR campaign from 27th November,
2018 onwards.
Measles is a highly infectious, potentially fatal disease mostly affecting children. As per
disease estimate of the year 2016, every year approximately 50,000 children die in India
due to measles related complications. Rubella even though is a mild viral infection affecting
both the children and the adults. If it occurs during pregnancy it can cause severe
lifelong disabilities (Congenital Rubella Syndrome) to the child and a huge socio- economic
burden to the family and society.

Last year approximately 86,000 Measles and 2 lac Rubella cases were reported among
children in India. Now you can protect your child from both these diseases by a simple
step. Give your child the new and effective MR vaccine. The vaccine is free of cost, pretested
and prequalified by WHO and is provided by the Government of India through
the TMC Health Department in Thane, Mumbai.
The vaccine will be available in your school on Thursday, 13th December, 2018. Each
child will be vaccinated using the audio disable syringes which ensure the injection safety
for the child.
All children up to tenth standard must take this additional dose of MR vaccine irrespective
of previous vaccination status. Children who remain unvaccinated at the end of the
campaign will be highly susceptible to disease and its complications in turn.
Please ensure your child gets Measles Rubella vaccine in school and contribute to-wardsthe effort to ELIMINATE MEASLES AND CONTROL RUBELLA.
