Rangers, police and ASF resorted to firing at every suspicious movement to avert any possible untoward incident. The routes leading to the airport were closed for traffic and flight operations suspended, but only for a while. All the flights were suspended immediately to avoid any untoward incident, however, after getting clearance within 20 minutes, all flights were allowed to move to their destinations, said Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) spokesperson Abid Qaimkhani. However, the paramilitary and security forces returned without arresting any of the culprits after two hours. It was not an attack, ASF spokesperson clarified. The firing incident occurred a distance away from the ASF camp. I think, they (militants) wont have the courage now to attack again as we have already been given them a good example of our strength by killing their all men [on Monday]. However, the electronic media termed it another attack in the airport premises, claiming that there had been a breach. It was blamed for creating most of the panic.

Control over the power of such images begins by unpicking and understanding what is happening. These images reflect your worst fears and while they can be extremely frightening they are not in any way real. Because you generate these images it is possible to turn things around. Lets approach the situation in a measured fashion. First, try to recall the images that come into your head during a panic attack. Now try playing with the picture in your mind.

His more recent research has tried to figure out why, and results seem to point to inflammation. It appears that stress hampers the body’s ability to fight inflammation, by making immune cells less sensitive to the hormone that “turns off” inflammation, HealthyDay reported.

Previous research in mice also showed that shorter bursts of stress impaired the centers of the brain involved in memory and learning, and left the mice struggling to remember how to find their way through a maze. A number of studies have also found that stress increases the amount of certain proteins in the brain that have been linked to Alzheimer’s, possibly accelerating the development of the disease.

It may be partly due to the fact that people who handle stress well often are healthy in other ways, like exercising regularly and not smoking. A 2011 study examined the specific effects of work-related stress, and found that among middle- and upper-class men, psychological stress caused about 10 percent of strokes.
