Nathan Desai, the Indian-origin lawyer, during the 20-minute shooting spree, was wearing a military-style clothing with Nazi symbols where he fired at passing cars.

Police said that  they had no idea why Desai went on the rampage hitting people at random.

Desai’s name was written with capital ‘s’  in media reports in Houston, to make it sound European, but his father was identified as Prakash Desai.

Current foreign news says, almost all the victims survived but one of them was critically wounded and five others were hospitalised, the police informed.

NewsGram brings to you latest international news updates.

The shooter’s father, Prakash Desai told KPRC TV that his son was not keeping well because his law practice and was also worried.

46-year-old Nathan Desai owned several guns to protect himself against his clients. His father added, his clients were funny and criminally-minded people

This is the second mass shooting by a person of Indian descent in the US.

In 2003, Biswanath Halder, at the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, went on a rampage, taking hostages, killed a graduate student and wounded others as well as a professor.

He was captured alive and was sentenced to life after a trial. (IANS)

    How the fuck does a capital S make it sound European?? WTF??!! STUPID!!

    this is a sad news, dont know what to say about this.. seems people are very happy killing each other and then dying themselves

Scientists Produce Complex Glass From 3D Printing

The researchers can change various parameters in each layer, including pore size.

Creating glass objects using 3D printing is not easy but a groups of researchers including one of Indian-origin has now used a better technique to produce complex glass objects with addictive manufacturing.

Researchers from ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich) used the method based on stereolithography, one of the first 3D printing techniques developed during the 1980s.

David Moore, Lorenzo Barbera and Kunal Masania in the Complex Materials group led by ETH processor Andre Studart developed a special resin that contains a plastic and organic molecules to which glass precursors are bonded.

The resin can be processed using commercially available ‘Digital Light Processing’ technology.

This involves irradiating the resin with UV light patterns. Wherever the light strikes the resin, it hardens because the light sensitive components of the polymer resin cross link at the exposed points.

The plastic monomers combine to form a labyrinth like structure, creating the polymer. The ceramic-bearing molecules fill the interstices of this labyrinth, said the team in a paper published in the journal Natural Materials.

An object can thus be built up layer by layer. The researchers can change various parameters in each layer, including pore size.

“We discovered that by accident, but we can use this to directly influence the pore size of the printed object,” said Masania.

These 3D-printed glass objects are still no bigger than a die. Large glass objects, such as bottles, drinking glasses or window panes, cannot be produced in this way “which was not actually the goal of the project,” emphasised Masania.

The aim was rather to prove the feasibility of producing glass objects of complex geometry using a 3D printing process. However, the new technology is not just a gimmick.

The researchers applied for a patent and are currently negotiating with a major Swiss glassware dealer who wants to use the technology in his company. (IANS)
