House, Interrupted 3.12.2017 DNA: Popular News
Disruptions, adjournments and delays to proceedings have been a feature of parliamentary business in India. But the number of actual sittings of both Houses has also gone down drastically over the years, impacting Parliament's function to frame robust policies and laws, aid in better governance and hold the government to account. Data shows Parliament has been progressively allocating fewer days to meet. It has been meeting even less on those days — marked more by pandemonium and acrimonious scenes than real discussion. The governments have been trying to make up for lost time by pushing through legislation faster with much deliberation, raising concerns over the efficacy of Parliament in the world's largest democracy. Decline begins To begin with, the Lok Sabha, constituted in 1952, sat for 103 days that year.

'Bizarre star that refuses to die discovered' 10.11.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Scientists have made a bizarre discovery - a star that refuses to stop shining, despite exploding multiple times over a period of more than 50 years. Supernovae, the explosions of stars, have been observed in the thousands and in all cases they marked the death of a star. "The spectra we obtained at Keck Observatory showed that this supernova looked like nothing we had ever seen before. This, after discovering nearly 5,000 supernovae in the last two decades," said Peter Nugent, Senior Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in the US. "While the spectra bear a resemblance to normal hydrogen-rich core-collapse supernova explosions, they grew brighter and dimmer at least five times more slowly, stretching an event which normally lasts 100 days to over two years," said Nugent. The supernova, named iPTF14hls, was discovered in September 2014. At the time, it looked like an ordinary supernova. Several months later, astronomers at Las Cumbres Observatory (LCO) in the US noticed the supernova was ...
