Meanwhile, this result adds to India’s growing list of gold medal tally. On Saturday, Anish Bhanwala also won gold in the Junior Men’s 25m Standard Pistol competition, with a world record score of 579, which helped India also bag the Team Silver in the event and prop it to second in the overall standings.

Race Across America (RAAM)

The Race Across America, or RAAM, is an ultramarathon bicycle race across the United States that started in 1982 as the Great American Bike Race.
RAAM is one of the longest annual endurance events in the world. All entrants must prove their abilities by competing in any of several qualifying events, completing a course within a specified time period.

in the Race Across America, the direction has always been from the west coast to the east coast of the United States, approximately 3,000 miles (4,900 km), making it a transcontinental event. More importantly, the race has no stages, i.e., it is in principle a nonstop event from start to finish, with the fastest competitors needing slightly over a week to complete the course. 
ISRO’s satellite-based chips to alert people at unmanned rail crossings...

Satellite-based chip systems will now alert road users at unmanned level crossings about approaching trains and also help in tracking train movement on a real-time basis.
On a pilot basis, the Mumbai and Guwahati Rajdhani trains will be equipped with this system.
Road users will be warned by hooters once a train approaches an unmanned level crossing as railways are installing ISRO-developed integrated circuit (IC) chips on locomotives of trains.
There will be hooters at 20 unmanned level crossings on Rajdhani routes for Guwahati and Mumbai, said a senior railway ministry official involved with the project.
More trains will be equipped with such technology in a phase-wise manner, according to the plan.
About 500 metres before the level crossings, the hooter will be activated through the IC chip, warning road users as well as the train driver near the crossing.
The hooter will be louder as the level crossing nears, and finally it will be silent after the train passes by.
Besides alerting road users, the satellite-based system will also be used for tracking trains for disseminating information about their movement on real time basis.
This will be of great help to passengers as currently train movements are tracked manually.
