Professor Anil Gupta steps down as Executive Vice-Chairman of National Innovation Foundation 24.5.2018 DNA: Money
After almost 18 years of service, professor Anil Gupta, who set up the National Innovation Foundation, that aims at strengthening grassroots technological innovation, stepped down from his post as the Executive Vice-Chairman. He says he took the decision so he could divert his energy to various social causes such as lack of nutrition and education. NIF was set up in 2000 based on Honey Bee Network's philosophy and has created a database of 2,25,000 technological ideas and innovations. Gupta took to social media to inform about his decision, stating: "Stepping down from the position of Executive Vice Chair, NIF. When the Honey Bee Network created NIF way back in 2000, with the support of Department of Science and Technology, there was no template on how to build an inclusive innovation ecosystem.

Gajanand Sharma, a resident of village Maharkalan, missing for more than three decades, has been found in the Lahore jail.  This tragic story came to light when papers sent by the Lahore jail for verification reached the Samod police station area of Jaipur district. His 62-year-old wife, Makhni Devi, is both elated about her husband being found and worried over the fact that he is in a Pakistani jail. She said after he went missing, she ran from pillar to post but could not lodge a police complaint as she was illiterate.

Texas Governor Abbott considers 'red flag' gun law in wake of school shooting 24.5.2018 DNA: Money
Texas Governor Greg Abbott sought consensus on firearms in a second round of talks on preventing gun violence on campus on Wednesday and may look at "red flag laws" to keep guns out of the hands of people deemed by a judge to be danger to themselves or others. After last week's fatal shooting of 10 people in a Houston-area high school, Abbott invited the Texas State Rifle Association, affiliated with the National Rifle Association, and Texas Gun Sense, which favors tighter gun laws, to join him in Austin, the state capital. Abbott, a Republican, said the panel on Wednesday discussed ways to address mental health issues at schools, safe storage measures for firearms at homes and the so-called red flag warning laws. "We focused on trying to build bridges between sides that may not always see eye to eye, working collaboratively on one goal, and that is making sure that we are going to keep our students, our schools and our communities safer," Abbott, a supporter of gun rights, told reporters after the ...
