Since all educational institutions including schools have remained closed since July 9, BOSE has decided to allow a 50 percent cut in the syllabus for those students willing to take the secondary exams.

Elaborate arrangements of security have been made for the smooth conduct of these exams.

Dozens of schools have been burnt by miscreants during the last two months.

Speaking publicly about his differences with Facebook, WhatsApp’s co-founder Brian Acton urged Stanford University students to delete their Facebook accounts, as he explained his reasons for selling the app to Mark Zuckerberg in the first place.

Acton made statements on Facebook while addressing a panel that also involved a former Facebook software engineer, Ellora Israni at the university, Business Insider Australia reported on Wednesday.

“We give them the power. That’s the bad part. We buy their products. We sign up for these websites. Delete Facebook, right?” Acton was quoted as saying.

Acton started WhatsApp with co-founder Jan Koum. Facebook acquired the messaging service in 2014 for $22 billion.

“I had 50 employees and I had to think about them and the money they would make from this sale. I had to think about our investors and I had to think about my minority stake. I didn’t have the full clout to say no if I wanted to,” Acton added.
