Question 1

Time: 00:00:00
The Renaissance, which means "rebirth" in French, typically refers to a period in European history from A.D. 1400 to A.D. 1600. Many historians, however, assert that it started earlier or ended later, depending on the country. It bridged the periods of the Middle Ages and modern history, and, depending on the country, overlaps with the Early Modern, Elizabethan and Restoration periods. The Renaissance is most closely associated with Italy, where it began in the 14th century, though countries such as Germany, England and France went through many of the same cultural changes and phenomena.
However, while the Renaissance brought about some positive changes for Europe, the geographical exploration that flourished during this time led to devastation for the people of the Western Hemisphere as European conquest and colonization brought plagues and slavery to the Indigenous people living there. In Africa, it also brought about the birth of the trans-Atlantic slave trade that saw Black people shipped from Africa to the Western Hemisphere to work as slaves on European colonies.
According to the City University of New York at Brooklyn, intense interest in and learning about classical antiquity was "reborn" after the Middle Ages, in which classical philosophy was largely ignored or forgotten. Renaissance thinkers considered the Middle Ages to have been a period of cultural decline. They sought to revitalize their culture through re-emphasizing classical texts and philosophies. They expanded and interpreted them, creating their own style of art, philosophy and scientific inquiry. Some major developments of the Renaissance include astronomy, humanist philosophy, the printing press, vernacular language in writing, painting and sculpture technique, world exploration and, in the late Renaissance, Shakespeare's works.
Many historians, including U.K.-based historian and writer Robert Wilde, prefer to think of the Renaissance as primarily an intellectual and cultural movement rather than a historical period. Interpreting the Renaissance as a time period, though convenient for historians, "masks the long roots of the Renaissance," Wilde told Live Science.

Question 6

Time: 00:00:00
India as a country is known for its unique culture, heritage, temple style, variety of rivers and wildlife. The country is surrounded by the mighty Himalayas, deep Arabian Sea, Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean. The Indians civilization and culture inherit the tradition of Atithi Devo Bhava (The Guest is like God) from the time immemorial. India also boasts a substantially diverse physical, political and multi-lingual society and offers a lot to explore through its voluminous vivid recreation and adventure activities. Because of its diverse attractions and geographic location, India attracts a large number of tourists from all around the globe besides a large number of domestic tourists. India is therefore considered as an important tourist hotspot offering an array of experiences to the tourists.
The intensifying influence of tourism as an economic powerhouse and its potential as a tool for regional development are indisputable. It is growing progressively and contributing immensely to the inclusive economic development of the nation at one end and employment generation for the stakeholders on the other end. On the basis of its tourism resources and attractions, tourism in India can broadly be classified into cultural and heritage tourism, eco and sustainable tourism, religious/pilgrimage tourism, wildlife and nature-based tourism, medical tourism, leisure and beach tourism, MICE and event tourism, creative tourism, etc.
Tourism development also leads to several undesired impacts over the host population and destination settings. Therefore, a close tab on the tourism development efforts needed to be there by the policymakers, planners, residents and other stakeholders. If India is to appreciate the enormous tourism potential, it must position its exclusive world-class tourism products and destinations to compete for a larger share of the global tourism market. Therefore, an effort to provide new insights into the existing body of knowledge of tourism in India on emerging consumer behaviour trends, tourism education, local food experiencescape, marketing and destination marketing/branding strategies are the vital need of the day.

Question 9

Time: 00:00:00
Millennia of evolution have created our skin, a highly adaptive, multifunctional organ that protects us from a daily onslaught of chemical, physical and ultraviolet radiation challenges. This harsh external environment often results in injury to the skin, and it will therefore come as no surprise that our skin possesses sophisticated reparative processes that allow it to heal quickly and efficiently. Despite considerable innate reparative ability, multiple cellular aspects of an individual's injury response can become attenuated, compromising wound closure. This attenuation is most often a result of pathological systemic changes, such as those associated with advanced age or uncontrolled diabetes. Indeed, age and diabetes are primary risk factors for developing a chronic wound (i.e. a wound that takes longer than 12 weeks to heal). Unfortunately, these chronic wounds (primarily venous ulcers, pressure sores and diabetic foot ulcers) are a major area of unmet clinical need, increasing significantly on a global scale.
Our skin is specialized to interface with the external environment and provides a variety of important homeostatic functions, from regulating thermostability to sensing extrinsic stimuli. Crucially, the skin acts as a primary defence barrier, preventing desiccation and mechanical, chemical, thermal and photic damage to internal structures [2]. This defence extends to a sophisticated immune barrier response that protects against pathogenic infection, while supporting commensal microorganisms via an elegantly adapted host–microbiota axis [3]. The skin has also evolved efficient and rapid mechanisms to close breaches to its barrier in a process collectively known as the wound healing response.
