3) Hypogonadism: Male hypogonadism is a condition in which the body doesn’t produce enough of the hormone that plays a key role in masculine growth and development during puberty (testosterone) or enough sperm or both.

- Despite being widely used, the cardiovascular safety of testosterone treatment had so far remained unclear due to inconsistent findings.
4) Fast Radio Bursts: The detection of the new Fast Radio Burst (FRB) termed FRB 20190520B raises some important questions about the origin and source of these signals.
- The source of the FRB 20190520B is “co-located with a compact, persistent radio source and associated with a dwarf host galaxy of high specific-star-formation..” The signal is supposed to be close to another unknown object, which is emitting a weaker radio signal. This sort of combination has only been observed in another FRB.
- FRB are bright bursts of radio waves (radio waves can be produced by astronomical objects with changing magnetic fields) whose durations lie in the millisecond-scale, because of which it is difficult to detect them and determine their position in the sky.
- It was first discovered in 2007.
5) International Atomic Energy Agency: Set up as the world’s “Atoms for Peace” organization in 1957 within the United Nations family.
