    India repeatedly ruled out demonetization in the 1970s
    India repeatedly ruled out demonetization in the 1970sDemonetization of high-value notes took India by surprise on November 8, 2016, mainly because ‘high-value’ or ‘high-denomination’ is not very high these days. A Rs 500 note is not even a tenner in the US, UK or the rest of Europe. You can’t buy a...

    @Abhilash Gaur .. thanks for this post, you have given a clearer view on this, in my opinion. I have been following this news, and really wonder if the government expectations will be realised.

    yes, demonetization is not perhaps the apt measure to curb black money, stash money or fake currency, which is truly running a parallel economy in the country. most importantly, black money are easily being transferred to foreign bank through net banking or electronic banking system. simply a gimmick and harassing ordinary mass. time will definitely tell about the callous move of the government, a dementia being reflected in their act. nice insight @Abhilash Gaur! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    #11 #10 Thanks for such a thorough answer, @Margaret Aranda, MD, PhD. In all honesty, you have reinforced that our strategy of citizen science is the right course of action. Mostly because when I read this 'synopsis' of the process, it is clear why so many basic things that work can never be validated by the 'establishment' Obviously there is a need for this kind of research - I do want this kind of rigorous process evaluating drugs and surgical options - but there is a big wide gap when it comes to basics. What kinds of exercise really help - and why? OR what minimal daily amount of something like magnesium is therapeutic, not simply the RDA.

    All that said, there just has to be an Angel Investor type tired of nothing but apps who truly wants to do something meaningful. A compendium of all the various ways people find to deal with PD alongside their medications would be truly beneficial and this kind of data might even help the PhD's with even better hypotheses for the deep research work... So we keep on, trying to make that connection!

    #7 The solid, tried-and-true NIH Research Grants for the entry level and the seniors, too are formal. The K-1 is easiest to get if I have another RO1 Recipient that I would 'work under' for 5 years. The RO1 is what I achieved in the past. All require an Institutional Review Board (IRB) that reviews the research before it is even submitted to the NIH. The NIH won't even look at the application unless that is stated in the first sentence. Things may have changed since 2000, and here is the full link: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/parent_announcements.htm

    #5 Great idea on getting a grant for research! I've written $3 million in NIH Grants while I was an Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania. Unless the Principal Investigator (PI) has an MD or a PhD at the end of your name, it'll go to the bottom of the pile. Let me know if you want my help - but that means a 1-year commitment minimum: hypothesis, materials and methods, statistical analysis specifics, preliminary data collection, preliminary conclusion(s), and a motivational, expository writing style that instigates the reviewers to Want to know you for life. They don't just want one grant submission. The Rejection will be re-written and critiqued if we are lucky enough to get "hints" on the rejection cause. And they will want real results, implementation of results, and all of this is the starting point for future grants through the same Committee, who will be "on your side" and "for your efforts" for decades. I'm "in" with others if this is clearly understood. It is not for the light-hearted, sensitive to rejection, or faint of heart. It is Hardball all the way.

    @Neal Rauhauser. I applaud the strength it took to approach your situation in such a pragmatic manner. We've been chatting for awhile and I can say that you have a smart head on your shoulders and would be a very valuable resource on any contract work in the realms of your experience.

    I think it is time that we all begin to realize there is nothing inherently 'magical' about the 8 hour work day. It was implemented due to assembly lines, not because it truly fit human biological capabilities.

    @Gary Sharpe and I would certainly be interested in partnering with you on something similar to the USDA innovation grant... to help us do some citizen science work around all the lifestyle parameters that lead up to PD. There does seem to be a personality type component and while all the science funding is digging deep into the brain, I think finding out about commonalities before diagnosis might be a fruitful avenue of inquiry both for prevention and to assist with the most promising ways to improve health once diagnosed.

    This is exactly the epidemic of Invisible Illnesses. The best we can do, in my opinion, is work from home. Or, from bed. So I can see you on paper, and have an inkling of what you can do, but I need the heart of the matter, the person that is the real "you." For surely as with others who suffer chronic pain, you have learned to live and grow and thrive in your own aims. So I say, join MEMOIR MADNESS so we get to know "you"....for I suspect that you know who 'you' are, and you are not merely a reflection of who others think you can be. That is inherently against your grain. I want to know the story of how you became. And I expect to hear the pain, for one does not arrive where you are without the rain and the storms and the lightening abounding all around. I can hear the sound. But talk to me, and let me walk with you, for it needs to be more personal than you have ever found. Give it up, give it all. Start anew and we will be with you.

    The desire to affect a positive change by compassionate people is all to often corrupted by the power of the positions they are elected, or appointed to. It is unfortunate for us all that the established leadership does not support solutions equitable to the population, and is often driven by a completely different agenda. Though some countries are conspicuous in their excesses and abuse of power, this is a human ailment of self imposed ignorance Too many people stand in peril and countries on the edge of collapse through the manipulation of economies and resources. The diversion of resources and attitude away from warfare to humanitarian relief efforts would prove less costly and far more productive in fostering human and national relations. There is an understandable animosity towards countries of affluent decadence by impoverished populations fostered by our leadership. The walls of division are obvious, it's architects are not. There is no obvious solution and violence simply compounds the problem. There obviously is a dire need for transparency in our leadership, and severe penalties for political corruption imposed. Unfortunately for the population, our leadership is already profoundly corrupt, and the tragic irony is only they could implement such policies.

    @NO one, without reading others' comments first, I can tell you the one thing that screams from this page more than anything else: the picture of the woman screaming from the page. She represents all that is lost: clothing, hairstyle, lipstick, the dentist, a toothbrush, and eventually, human dignity. In this new world of such inhumanity, only darkness can thrive together with the other shadows. What she needs is not further condemnation for a plight that is not of her own doing, nor platitudes for poets to dream of describing. She needs damn help. And she needs it from everyone around the world. Period. The message is so clear that I can't comprehend any other words without simple, basic compassion. If it was a dog or a dolphin instead of a human, perhaps she would be heard more humanely. Is every individual everyone "else's" problem? God forbid, NO! She is our problem. She is MY problem. Tell me what to do to help. Give me a Solution. Because I don't mind listening to the Problems in life. But I'm all about Solutions. And in 3 sec flat, I went from a complete stop to 100 mph. And I'm here. Tell me how to Help! And if there isn't a "Way," let's MAKE ONE! Today! It Can Be Done. Nothing is Impossible.

    It appears that some time revolution is the only answer. Our own Declaration is evidence of that, and we are at a tipping point soon here in the US.

That is the choice of oppressors, and the powerful who have no moral compass.

    #3 Thanks for the comments Oliver! It is indeed in the collaboration between minds in Finance but even more so outside of Finance that value is created. If functions operate in silos companies are losing out on significant value creation.

    @Anders Liu-Lindberg, I thoroughly agree with your point regarding @Adam Moore's comment. Sometimes on a project we require that different perspective to help certain aspects come to fruition. I learned early on that engaging with people from different schools of thought, disciplines and proffesional backgrounds can offer shed light on the potenial of a project that I was perhaps not proffesionally geared up to consider. Really interesting article and and a wonderful introduction to your buzzes. I look forward to reading more!

    #1 Thanks for the comment Adam! I think the key is to find a way for someone to collaborate with that creative mind and make sure the insights (s)he develops can be applied in a business.

    I don't know if the same happens but when there's a creative mind the person is more likely better to work alone, since groups will limit the creativity. Science and finance I guess is not as free and creative but I hope I make sense on what I'm trying to point out.

    Tough situation in Australia @Paul Walters and it is almost unbelievable thinking that this country was made mainly from migration, even if you go a History Museum, what you are going to get is tons of boats arriving as you say with penniless migrants. It is now like Australian Government has no respect for its own History and I know there are limits but you can't refuse to do something you made a commitment of like accepting Syrian refugees.

    I recently had a similar conversation with an English friend of mind on the subject of how the tabloid culture in Britain slanders each of those seeking refuge as the horde that have come to steal your jobs and hinder your comfortable way of living through terror - not once did he consider they may of had any form of education or even a profession to speak of.. A really thought provoking article Paul @Paul Walters, thanks for sharing.

    The 'Refugee' Crisis - is purely engineered and run off the calamity that the bankers and globalists have created in their attempts to spread 'Democracy' across the planet. The millions of Syrian Refugees would not have existed if the US / EU / NATO had not been in a penchant to over throw Assad and bomb his country into rubble; much have they have done in Libya. If you want to solve the refugee crises - you should quit creating them. In the history of globalist expansion - they have shown not to care about the pawns of people - unless there was an ulterior motive, in this case pawns for benefit stacking. * a centuries old practice - that Gogol wrote about in 1850's in his Dead Souls.

    #1 True Dean, but migrants who attempt to enter Australia by boat can be incarcerated for years in miserable detention centres in the most inhospitable places. I agree Europe in the last year or so has been "flooded" and I totally agree when countries with high unemployment cant really take in extra people. Australia is a different story. Last year they agreed to take in 12,000 Syrian refugees and to date ....they have taken a miserable 47!!!!

    Valid points for sure. But I think it really depends on the country. Australia/Japan there is possibly a labour shortage, but in Spain and Greece where youth unemployment is close to 50%, they really need to consider carefully the pros and cons.

    So true Anders. One of the most frustrating aspects of budgets that I have encountered in many companies is the inflexibility associated with allocations. For instance; one area was over-budgeted while in another area an unforeseen project arises that would be a real value add to performance and lend to a healthier bottom line for the year. What happens; the project is postponed until it can be 'budgeted' while the unused funds for the over-budgeted area are lost as 'savings'. If budgets are not dynamic, if inflexibility results in lost opportunities, then they are nothing more that short-term, irrelevancies that have little association with reality. But Wow, don't those 'savings' sure look good on end-of-year reporting! This never made sense to me.
