Does Education Pay?

It has become popular to bash education. Here is an article that is questioning the college education

The complete article is here. It raises some valid concerns about the cost of college education also about the availability of jobs after graduation. We also have some famous college drop outs who have done extremely well by being entrepreneurs and creating companies that are worth billions of dollars.

Does this mean college education is a luxury only few can afford? besides that it does not offer any future prospects. Probably not. Here is an infographics from BLS that shows that college graduate outperform others when it comes to earning and prospects of enjoyability.



Unless some one is an exceptional individual who can learn on his own college education still offers a chance to join the ranks of middle class. College affordability is certainly an issue but can be solved by making the correct choice of affordable institution of higher learning. This will require some research on the part of the aspiring college entrants.

Zombie Banks Parody

Bankers are usually a very conservative lot and very good at keeping money from its clients into safe deposits or in safe boring investments. Apparently they got jealous of success of the investment bankers notably hedge funds who were creating huge returns for themselves and their investors so they decided to take some risk in lending to increase there profitability. Also, helping people who were not qualified for loans and credits under normal lending practices. The scheme worked fine for a while till the bubble burst and now we have too many banks holding non-performing loans making them resemble zombie banks.

Once a pillar of the society now they are becoming a good source of material for humorists.

Future of Management

Gary Hamel is a leading management Guru . His bio
The Wall Street Journal recently ranked Gary Hamel as the world's most influential business thinker, and Fortune magazine has called him "the world's leading expert on business strategy." For the last three years, Hamel has also topped Executive Excellence magazine's annual ranking of the most sought after management speakers.

Hamel's landmark books, Leading the Revolution and Competing for the Future, have appeared on every management bestseller list and have been translated into more than 20 languages. His latest book, The Future of Management, was published by the Harvard Business School Press in October 2007 and was selected by Amazon.com as the best business book of the year. Source

He has authored many books on Management including his latest book titled "Future of Management". The brief description of book is here In the book Hamel demonstrates that

It is innovation in management—rather than in operations, products or strategies—that is most likely to create long-term advantage.
He provides examples of success stories of many companies who are using innovative management practices.

Google is an Information Technology company that is using many new practices for product development that are innovative. Gary Hamel interviews Google CEO Eric Schmidt at the Management Lab Summit. The interview is very informative and provides an insight into the management practices at Google that are slightly different from the "Command and Control" type of management practices at older organizations.



Another book that builds on the same theme is "Future of Work" by Dr. Thomas Malone in which he proposes the management approach of "Cultivate and Coordinate".

It would be interesting to observe if we will see any changes in the management practices in the future to improve the productivity of the organizations along the line suggested by these authors or Google and companies like it will remain few exceptions to the general management practices.

The printing press as an agent of change

The information and media are very closely related. We use media to store and communicate information. Throughout the ages we have invented different ways to do the job. One of the most revolutionary method was the invention of print media. It made publishing books easy and inexpensive. This wider availability of printed book also resulted into social and cultural changes. This books describes some of those changes.


Please use the top bar for navigating through the pages of the book.

The book has implications for our current situation where we are witnessing the emergence of new digital media. It would be very interesting to speculate on its effects on the social and cultural changes.

Another Twitter Parody

Twitter must be gaining momentum because people start making fun of Twitter by creating these parodies.

Here is the famous quote from Gandhi "First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win." If we accept the quote on its face value then Twitter is entering into the second phase of acceptability and it will have to go through at least one more stage before it will become a tool that is respected by all.

Rogers, 65, gives talks to teachers on topics such as education and his views on world matters, while Parker, 39, helps its English department by conducting enrichment classes.

Their daughter, Hilton Augusta, nicknamed Happy, is attending Nanyang Kindergarten, which is not affiliated to the primary school.

Song THAHRA THAHRA from Movie Karma:Crime,Passion,Reincarnation

The movie has an international cast of actors from US,Germany and India. The main actors and actresses in the movie are Carlucci Weyant, Alma Saraci,Claudia Ciesla, and Vijayendra Ghatge

The brief plot of the story is
Vikram, estranged and separated from his father, Ranvir, for the past thirty years, visits him in Ooty with his bride Anna from New York at her insistence, but only for a day or two. The moment Anna alights from the train that brings them to the small town, she unwittingly becomes the medium of events including visions of a murder that took place in the woods surrounding Vik's father's home thirty years ago. With little love by Vik for his father, it is Anna, an orphan, who conspires with her father-in-law to change Vik's mind about staying longer and taking over his father's business. The hauntings now become more frequent and intense, making Anna sick to the point of her mental state of mind questioned. Even though Anna had never set foot in Ooty, leave alone India before, she seems very familiar with the surroundings and even some people. Anna begins to questions some people who then see her as a threat. The nightmares occur more frequently and with more specificity. At first Vik accuses Anna of having some ingrained psychological problems, which hurt Anna deeply - but when strange inexplicable events happen to Vik himself he apologizes to Anna. Vik resolves to help Anna and when it is discovered that a murder had indeed taken place thirty years ago, together they try to solve the mystery. The spirit of Linda, raped and murdered thirty years ago, reincarnated as Anna, leads Anna and Vik to the discovery of the identity of the murderer. Written by Vivek Singhania



The official main web site of the movie is at http://www.karmacpr.com/

The release date for the movie in India is set on 11th June, 2009.
