Fuel consumers will have to dig a little deeper this month as the Independent Consumer and Competition Commission announced increases for all major fuel products for the month of May. The new retail fuel prices for this month will take effect today, May 8, 2019. Fuel prices for Petrol, Diesel and Kerosene in Port Moresby will see an increase by 14.96 toea, 6.13 toea and 7.08 toea respectively while all the other centres will see the same increase in all the petroleum products. The increase in the retail prices is mainly attributed to the increase in the crude oil prices driven by steady demand and tight supplies, the depreciation of the PNG kina against the US dollar last month, plus an increase in international sea freight for the petroleum products in the same month. As part of the ICCC’s enforcement and compliance of fuel prices, its investigation officers will conduct inspections at all service stations to ensure prices of petroleum products do not exceed the allowable … [Read more...] about Fuel prices increase in May, says consumer watchdog

A TINY knee bone thought to be near extinction is making a comeback - and it may be causing osteoarthritis. The fabella was only present in 11.2 per cent of people's knees globally back in 1918 and scientists thought it served little or no purpose in our bodies. But new research carried out at Imperial College London has found it can now be found in 39 per cent of adults around the world. And people with osteoarthritis of the knee were twice as likely to have one as those without the condition. The 3.5 fold increase has baffled scientists, who say further studies are needed to find out whether the mysterious fabella serves any physical purpose. Until now, it's often been described as pointless. Dr Michael Berthaume, from Imperial's Department of Bioengineering, said: "We don't know what the fabella's function is - no one has ever looked into it! "The fabella is a sesamoid bone, meaning it grows in the tendon of a muscle - the kneecap, for instance, is the largest sesamoid bone in the … [Read more...] about Tiny knee bone rare in humans is making a comeback — and may be causing painful osteoarthritis
