This is his opportunity to talk nice to Congress.

The Prime Minister says this will clamp down on the number of people who do not pay tax, which is a very small number in India, and the about 1% of the population pays tax. The government says it will help crack down on those people who do not pay tax, and bring them under the law, and strict action can be taken against them.

The government is investing money, but the issue is that the pollution problem is getting worse faster than the government can deal with it. The only way to sort things out is to clamp down on companies that pollute. Even if they are fined they still do it - or they don't even pay the fine! This is partly the fault of local governments that just want economic growth at any cost. The central government needs to take a much tougher line against them and the companies.

Corruption and the fight against it is a never ending battle. It is impossible to fully eliminate corruption as it's a many headed hydra and as one head is removed a new one springs up somewhere else. The best a society can do is stamp out as much of it as possible and limit it's effects on the nation as a whole.While I applaud China's efforts to clean up what is essentially an open sewer of corrupt officials and practices it takes more than a clamp down to keep levels as low as possible, it requires considerable education from childhood and suitable rewards for those who report corruption.

Okay fellow Make-Gyvers, what do you get when you cross a peripheral power cable jumper, a paperclip, springs, and some 3D-printed housings? DIY test lead clips . Test clips are easily acquired, but where's the fun in that? [notionSuday] started by removing the lead connectors from the jumper, soldering them to stripped lengths of paperclip, bent tabs off the connectors to act as stoppers, and slid springs over top. Four quick prints for the housings later, the paperclip assembly fit right inside, the tips bent and clipped to work as the makeshift clamp. Once slipped onto the ends of their multimeter probes, they worked like a charm. In the video you also get a glimpse of a battery holder [notionSunday] made using a 3D printer and some more paperclips. Take note if you don't have a cache of paperclips in your workspace, you may be missing out on critical hacking materiel.
