Paul, what to say on such staggering stats you've presented. In contrary to Jerry's opinion I think that the government is the solution to the unemployment problem in India as a major social issue. The government is responsible for the defective and low-quality education system.
You've mentioned a National Skill Development Program that failed. No skill development programme can succeed without an underlying foundation of basic and primary education.

Paul Walters As a smaller example - I read once that India has 1,5 Million engineers and 3 million MBA's per year entering the workforce. That is an enormous number. I can only imagine the difficulty of creating an economy that can absorb all these and other graduates. Excellent article Paul - well researched and topical!

Randall, Perhaps my problem is not seeing flow and mindfulness as the same thing. Your speaking suggestion is a good way for me to look at it. Thanks for that!

Heterosomati - is that a fruity sushi?
Really does that sound too couchie?
King Ken better sip some more sauvignon blanc
Because to be frank
Whisky makes you frisky
and it's a wee bit risky
and it's a last minute measure
when King Ken has the 'pleasure'
of seeing what the architect artists
have created at their leisure !

Without being haughty
Boddie rhymes with naughty
Ken's favorite rice is Basmati
which he eats with chipati
For dessert there's biscotti
Tomorrow's dinner will be Heterosomati, (with lemon butter)
He listens to pavarotti
And it's rumored he's Illuminati

Why Round Buildings are Better

Why Round Buildings are Better

I've been doing some research into Resilient Housing, right from the start I was convinced that a round house would be the way to go.  Our Ancestors often built round houses - take Igloos, Teepees, African Mud Brick Huts, Yurts and European...

Very beautiful designs (the modern ones) Claire. Round shapes are better for Feng Shui as well. Square or rectangular houses have sharp corners which allow "poison arrows" to point in our direction. I read about Chinese ancient round houses as well. They've been preserved as part of the history & culture.

Thursday Thoughts: What Are the Odds?

Thursday Thoughts: What Are the Odds?

I think we all saw the amazing result of the FanDuel Sportsbook's error in posting the odds on a bet a few weeks ago -- and then having several bettors actually jump on it and place bets that paid off HUGE! Not immediately, but in the end, because...

(continued from below).... Furthermore, I found that my wall was being flooded with articles in one or more languages with which I had no familiarity. The obvious thing was to cull my connections and this I did by weeding out those who were blatant advertisers, those writing in another language, and those who's subject matter just didn't interest me. I also, incidentally, culled those who did not comment on my blogs or those of others with whom I regularly communicated, and who didn't write blogs themselves. This worked very well, with the result that I now have a relatively short and clean wall, but still have the option of going to Producer to find newBees with whom I may have some interest. I therefore screen all requests for communication from bees this days and will not 'follow' back if I have not previously communicated with them, they do not have a human profile picture (more common than you might think), or, when looking at their profile, they are not active. Thus I appear to have successfully avoided importing bots or other robotic or potentially destructive agents. I prefer to think of this as a numbers control option rather than working the odds.

Interesting open door policy you have with SM, Susan. First let me say that my following comments apply only to beBee.com, as I've virtually given up with LI and my Facebook account is only for family, friends and those with whom I've corresponded regularly on other platforms. When I first started blogging on beBee, some two years and seven months ago, the platform was new, everyone was excited about this new concept, there were very few of us writing blogs here, and everyone and anyone wanted to connect. It goes without saying that many bees, and certainly me for one, tended to respond to anyone who connected with us (or 'follow' us) by 'following' in kind. Slowly, however, as time went by, the numbers of participants in this platform started to increase and it became apparent that it just wasn't possible to communicate with everyone. Not only that, but the marketers and advertisers started to come onboard, the bottom line being that I found (in common with many) that my 'wall' (or home page) was becoming tediously long and full of articles with which I had absolutely no interest (to be continued).
