Student's safety sensor to avert gas tragedies 14.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The mother of gas leak safety is here, a robotic sensor which may never let another gas leak tragedy happen. Aptly named as Suraksha Ma, the robotic sensor can turn off the gas cylinder in case of a gas leak. It was one of the projects on display at the Dayananda Sagar Talent Search 2017. The sensor is an invention of a government school student, Shravani. Coming from a humble background, Shravanis greatest concern was a familys safety in the case of a possible gas leak.

To be world-class, delink guv, varsities 14.12.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The President of India and Governors of states are regarded as constitutional functionaries. The President, by virtue of his office, assumes the role of a Visitor of more than 120 of central universities/institutions. Likewise, the governors, ex-officio, act as Chancellors of state universities. This system has been in place for several decades now. From ancient times, universities around the world have had authorities such as President, Chancellor, Vice Chancellor, Proctor and Deans. Renowned Indian mathematician-astronomer Aryabhata was made the vice-chancellor of Nalanda University (5-12 century CE) by the then ruler Buddhagupta. State universities in Karnataka are either governed by specific Acts as in the case of Viswesvaraya Technological University and Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences or by a common Act called Karnataka State Universities Act (KSU Act, 2000 - herein referred to as the Act) in respect of Mysore, Karnatak, Bangalore and other universities. Various provisions of the Act, ...

Witness the Gateway of India, Mumbais iconic monument, in sugar at the 43rd annual cake show which opens for public at the St Josephs Indian High School grounds, opposite Kanteerava stadium on Friday. The 15-foot-tall replica weighing 1,200 kg was made by a seven-member team over 75 days. "The model is entirely made of sugar. We made bricks, sheets and other individual components which were then assembled here. It is a challenging task, but it helps us develop our skills," said Narmada Lingathuri, who is part of the team. All the creations at the show, part of the National Consumer Fair, are made by staff and students of the Institute of Baking and Cake Art (IBCA). A highlight of the show this year is a very real-looking bride, stepping down from her palanquin or doli as it is known. The brides skirt is exquisitely detailed with sugar lace and she is decked with jewellery made of icing sugar. Avril Pinto, the creator, worked with two others 20 hours a day for 21 days to complete the cake in time for the ...

Protest against Transgender Rights Bill in Bengaluru 14.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Almost 300 transgenders from various districts in Karnataka, gathered at Mysore Bank Circle on Thursday to protest against the Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill, 2016. Their main demand was that the central government step back from the move to introduce the bill in the upcoming winter session of the Parliament. Narasimha Murthy, a lawyer and human rights activist addressed the gathering. Sowmya Raj, an office-bearer of Karnataka Transgender Samiti told Deccan Herald that the current Bill does not understand the needs of the community members. "The Bill has multiple issues. The government did not consider our recommendations," she said. The Bill demands the "transgender person may make an application to the District Magistrate for issuing a certificate of identity as a transgender person." It is contradictory to the Supreme Court verdict in The National Legal Services Authority vs the Union of India in February 2014 which allowed the self- identification of gender identity. "Gender identity ...
