Hats off, to all those brave job-seekers in Manhattan!

"Wow!" said the cabbie in Gotham, and "Oh wow!" sez I, sitting at my desk after watching this video of gutsy New Yorkers.

What shall I write about… New York, or Mumbai?

Not just my fingers, but even the cells in my brain seem numbed by this wintry cold.

Are the visually impaired leading the disabled... reeks of a scandal aboard the Long Island Railroad... the LIRR! Beware, we're talking about 250 million US dollars already paid as federal occupational disability money to early LIRR retirees since Y2K. We, the taxpayers, have paid for this and will continue to do so, while these 'disabled' … Continue reading Catch the LIRR! Who is abusing the system???

KPO… Knowledge Process Outsourcing

It's all about convenience, from whose perspective should you view this issue, and who finally gains or (loses) from KPO. If you're a bank or a corporation in the US, in present times it suits you to go set up an office (or several of them) in India or any other "cheap outsourcing location"... as … Continue reading KPO… Knowledge Process Outsourcing
