    Wink Two clause in one sentence

    Hi All,

    Is it OK to have two clauses with different tenses in one sentence? I am not sure whether the following sentence is correct.


    'The framework is called "Dossia" and will be able to gather health information from various sources.'

    Thanks,

    MG.
