One miss and South korea gets demolished, South Korea has right to dignified existence, especially when it has done no wrong. 09-24

One miss and South korea gets demolished, South Korea has right to dignified existence, especially when it has done no wrong.


This is about the show of force by the US jets in the demilitarised zone in the Korean peninsula.

This won't work with North Korea.

You can't continuously provoke a person, who has no value for scruples and ethics. of course the jets are still in the demilitarised zone.

However,

A small slip by the jets and the retaliation by North Korea will demolish South Korea.

South Korea has a right to dignified existence, more so because it has done no wrong. You can't be the reason for the destruction of a thriving and vibrant economy. Seoul is just 35 miles from North Korean border

You cannot impose another war on the people of Korea.

You just can't make Asia, again the battle ground to test your weaponry.
Asia and Africa have continuously borne the brunt of the misdemeanour of consecutive US presidents. This needs to end. The world community has a right to peaceful existence.

United States should now take backstage and allow China and Russia to engage with North Korea for diffusing the situation.

As international community, we need to continuously throw carrots at Kim Jong-in instead of sanctions.

Considering his desperate position and the pathetic condition of the people there, there are chances of his picking up one of the carrots. We can promise him food, medicine and development aid in return for peace and some nuclear activity rollbacks.
This was done earlier, with some amount of success, when his father was ruling. 

Hope, solace comes to the people of Korean Peninsula in the form of another such package.

Compensation package, that factor's retention and growth..09-21

google-site-verification: googled8cb12c78271c415.html H_abxalAdC9Cg0xe3NtXHQ6qbrc 








When a we recruit a management professional. We generally base our evaluation and suitability for the job on the basis of history, which factors most of our decision making process. The history may also include the type of organizations their brand equity and their positioning and performance in the related market segment. The performance of the individual and the factors, the environment and the entire ecosystem.

The best evaluation based on the above and the other factors is also, at the best a notional evaluation, may be or may not be close to the actual performance and deliverables.

However, after the employee successfully completes the period of probation and is ready for absorption in the organization, an appraisal is made of the person’s performance to decide his compensation package. After taking into account all the statutory additions and deductions, We decide on a package for the performance.

I have a suggestion on the breakup of this package on the basis of various contributing factors, both long and short term.

Please go through it and suggest an alternative or a better combination. I thank you in anticipation of high value insights.

At the time of performance appraisal, the suggested breakup of the salary with a long time employee retention and growth perspective are as follows in my opinion.

You can pay a management professional for simply being on the rolls of the company, but let it not be more than 10 % of his salary 

He needs to be paid for the sincere efforts he is making in the right direction, which may or may be, as of now producing results, but most probably precursors for extra ordinary deliveries in the future. 10% of the salary.

How much his work and behavior at the work place is creating positive environment, and encouraging and motivating his colleagues at the workplace to upgrade their performance levels. 5% of the salary.

Dress sense presentably, how much of it goes with the company culture, how much of it adds to the corporate equity of the organization.2% of the salary. 

How does the person manage the work life balance? How much the either of the two impact the other? 5% of the salary. 

If the professional is successful in all the above attributes, how much do these abilities help in replication of successful professionals like him from his team. 5% of the salary

How well he is picking up management skills and improving on them constantly (Growth rate.), and making himself a likely for future succession management. 3% of the salary.

Pay him for his deliverables that directly contribute to the turnover and bottom lines. 60%

Now how to evaluate a person on these traits or attributes. It may not be possible for one person to evaluate a person on all the traits. You can have a team of experts on individual traits. A person can be evaluated once every three months by way of questionnaire, personal formal informal interactions, and through performance evaluation reports from the concerned managers.

We can design related metrics with well-defined parameters.

Before we evaluate the person, it is necessary to orient the person about the skillsets the organization is going to evaluate.

It also helps to be transparent  about the configuration of the package, and after the valuation the scores the professional has attained in various parameters. He will be able to know about his strengths and weaknesses and will try to improve on his weak links before the next evaluation.

THIS AMOUNTS TO EQUAL OPPORTUNITY POLICY BEING IN ACTION.

This article deals only with the components of the compensation package. The dispersal method, methodology and components are a subject of another article some other day.

Your views are very important, please contribute.

Best wishes,

Shyam

Technology advance and Humanism 09-01

google-site-verification: googled8cb12c78271c415.html H_abxalAdC9Cg0xe3NtXHQ6qbrc 







Image credit : Shyam's Imagination Library

From the time the  human being was created, humanism also came into being, in some form or other. Even when he did not know how to cover his body, or create fire to cook his food, he knew how to live in cohesion with his fellow human beings. He lived in kind of loosely knit social collaboration with his fellow human beings.

The advent of technology has sort of alienated the human being from his/her inner self. The ways, modes, quantum, the technology has increased is just mind blowing, and it keeps on increasing by leaps. And on account of that, the conversation between the soul and the self  has become lesser and lesser over the period. The distance between the countries, continents, and planets has come down to a level that there is nothing inaccessible in the cosmos today.

Your Telescopes can locate any planet in the cosmos, but your being cannot locate and interact with the inner self. The most advanced Telescope will not be able to help locate the inner self. It is the crude and undeniable truth of the human existence.

Large internet companies in an indirect admission of  lack of humanism and lack of time or opportunities to explore humanism have created artificial facilities in the work place, the music room, billiards table, painting walls, food shacks, artificial or natural gardens. This they feel will relax the body and the soul. No it is nothing more than superficial convenience. They do not in any way energise or recharge the tired soul. The urge to innovate the inner longing to be creative, or the desire to be different have almost vanished from the professionals thought process.

If we travel back in time, when these companies were still in the garage or spare bedroom stage, we will immediately find the difference.

Just go back to your garage days and you will realise that, what you think as technology evolution are in fact great retards in Humanism.

Most of the creativity in the great internet companies of today have happened during their garage or spare bedroom stage. That is where they made mistakes unwittingly, unhesitatingly. Every mistake they made gave birth to creativity in the form of the fix for the problem. Every time they made mistakes and fixed it, they had created something new. Budget constraint often made to innovate things in an ingénue manner in an indigenous manner. Sometimes the Jugaads were put into place to substitute for the costly material and spare parts.

But the same organizations moved from the Garage and spare bedrooms to own corporate offices the nonchalance to make mistakes, learn from them, and be creative vanished. Each executive became an island unto himself lost in the pile of vast business information and intelligence in the form of data. The surfeit of information and the need to deal with it, made him almost robotic in nature.

With every advance in technology, we have seen that, there was an equal retard in Humanism (a collective term to describe the human feelings, emotions, and human chivalry.) at the work place.

Every new technological advance creates an avatar, and human being has unwittingly, but quite willingly agreed to compress himself within the avatar given by the Technology advance.

Humanism has to wait till Christmas vacations to manifest itself. Or to put it more aptly, Humanism manifests itself only during the Christmas vacations.

In this new services economy, we want the latest and greatest for the best possible value, and we only want to pay for what we actually use. In a world where we own less and less and yet have access to so much more. Adapting to the relentless pace of change in business and customer expectations will be critical to the success of tomorrow’s global leaders.

Multiple revenue models, dynamic pricing, and service-based business plans will become mainstream for every organization, and the ability to quickly adapt on a monthly, weekly, or even daily basis will be essential to their viability. This will hardly leave any time or opportunity for a professional to be a human being for at least some part of the day.

There’s a decent amount of evidence indicating that creative expression keeps our brains younger and makes us live longer. When you’re bogged down at the job with 60 hours of work to squeeze into 50 hours because you want to have a life goddamn it, when do you think you’re going to make it to that studio? The studio organisation has created for you to unplug and be yourself at least for sometime.

I have not one, but two examples of how activities that make you human and bring out the inner humanism in you can be practiced as part of your work schedule.

I have had the good fortune of having worked with and for Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. He used to tell us. Two hours in twenty four hours he would earmark to do things that he liked to do. Things that did not in any way give him any fruits. physical or ethereal. Sometimes he would do things that would surprise many. There would not be anything constructive in the work he would do, except to construct, reconstruct the inner self  to recharge it to take the grueling work pressure of the next 24 hrs.

The second example I have seen is in a Japanese work culture in a Japanese corporate giant. This must have been a good 25 years back. This organization had global projects, that entailed international travel for the executives. Their tour itinerary of 45 days included 30 days of tour of various countries where the projects were in execution and last 15 days at home with family. They had to complete the full itinerary of 45 days to be eligible for the next tour.

After completing their 30 days tour and submitting the report, next 15 days they were not required to come to office. They were required to spend that time with their families with absolutely no tension.. During their tour. the salary used to be sent to the family by a messenger by cheque. Online transactions were not there those days. A company person used to come and pay their utility bills. Everything used to be done so that the family did not feel the inconvenience during the person's absence.

Things must have changed  with the advance in technology, but there definitely must be some way  or to allow the humanism in the employee to come out and celebrate.

Finally, I would like to suggest that, even if the wherewithal to make the humanism to come and unwind itself is offered as an outreach, it is ok. It will at least put the professional on the path to reconquer the lost territory in his pursuit to acclimatise himself with his inner self.

Ten years of Hashtag 08-23

google-site-verification: googled8cb12c78271c415.html H_abxalAdC9Cg0xe3NtXHQ6qbrc 











.................................................................


Hashtag has completed ten years of its existence. We are today celebrating ten years of association
with the Hashtag. It has become an inseparable part of our social media content sharing activity.. 

What is Hashtag???

It is a metatag that is used for sharing content on social media platforms to attract the bots of search engines, and classify all the words implying the same meaning together. known as the hash character # in reference to its resemblance to several slices or chops with a sharp implement) Hashtag helps you to find all the content at place in relation to a subject,topic, event,place or an individual.

Twitter the micro blogging site which was launched in 2006, caught the imagination of the people immdetially, but it was not able to technically sustain its structure and often crashed on account of load of traffic or technical bugs. 

It was during one of such technical hitch in 2007, that Biz Stone, one of the founders, who was trying to fix along with his technicians, a person named Chris Messina walked into Twitter office and explained about the Hashtag and suggested its integration into Twitter infrastructure. It was not immediately accepted but was later on integrated in to twitter web infrastructure. 

On 23rd August 2007 Hashtag first appeared in the tweet by Chris Messina. After that it was integrated into the Twitter system. AND NOW 125 MILLLION HASTAGS (#) ARE BEING USED ON TWITTER DAILY.

Later it was widely adopted across websites, blogs and social media platforms like Facebook, Google+ and others. it was also accepted across almost all the news publishing websites.

LinkedIn did not recognise the Hash tag till a considerable period. In fact, once, after I cross posted conent on LinkedIn, I received a message from someone at LinkedIn telling me that, there was no use of cross posting content with Hashtags, as LinkedIn did not recognise Hashtags. However this year in March, when LinkedIn went in for a major makeover, Hashtag  started working on the LinkedIn timelines.

It is now widely used to get attention and create trends for people, events, places, and other things. Because of its widespread use, hashtag was added to the Oxford English Dictionary in June 2014.[2

Metatags, social media platforms, and later day evolution.

In the early stages of the web history, the website used to have metatags on their web pages. The metatags are texts that are hidden from the viewers but visible to the search engine bots (short for robot).  The metatag text was used to tell the search engines bots the nature of the website. the subject, the domain specificity, and any lineage it had to any organization. The search engines used to scan the web pages and pick up the metatags and place it in proper category. When a person searched for a particular information relating to any aspect, on a search engine like Google or others, all the webpages belonging to  the topic searched used to show in the search. The order depended on many factors, one of the factors being  the websites with maximum traffic relating to that topic, which were featured at the top. However there were other parameters also which decided the sequence in the search results.

First it was required to manually register your websites on the search engines. There were many agencies with the required software, who could register your website simultaneously on more than hundred search engines with a single click. There were also many search engine optimisation agencies which promised to get a better ranking for your website against payment. and it was difficult separate the genuine one from the fake ones. These people exploited the innocent web owners, who innocently fell into the trap.

In view of this exploitation and with the advancement of the  search technology,  metatags were done away with, and  Search Engine bots used high end technology to scan web pages and categorise and segment information based on various parameters, which evolved from time to time. 

When internet became more accessible in developing countries, post the millennium, social media platforms also became more accessible to people. Google had its Orkut, Microsoft and Yahoo had their messenger. However everything changed when Facebook was launched in 2003. Facebook with unique feature not only captured most of the social media market share, it also attracted more people to social media. Its domination was so complete, the other media platforms almost went into wilderness. Google retired its Orkut.  Google introduced wave micro blogging platform with a lot of features and strong search engine support from Google. However Wave could not sustain itself  in the face almost total domination from Facebook and twitter. Wave was withdrawn and a new platform Google+ was launched.

Now with the advent of mobile social platform WhatsApp, even Facebook and Twiter are struggling for existence. Though Facebook claims to have crossed 2 billion mark, it is finding it difficult to make its members log into their accounts regularly.


The future belongs to the mobile media platforms like WhatsApp and Instagram. WeChat the Chinese mobile social media platform is growing by hordes and claims a membership of more than a million.The other mobile media platforms that have come recently are also consolidating themselves and in not too distant a future they will present a challenge to the established media platforms.

Hope you have liked this article . Please feel free to express your opinion.

Quit India Modi Sarkar 08-10

google-site-verification: googled8cb12c78271c415.html H_abxalAdC9Cg0xe3NtXHQ6qbrc






Quit India Anniversary #Modi addresses the nation.

Nation tells #NarendraModi, now it is your turn.

QUIT INDIA MODI, OR AT LEAST QUIT INDIAN POLITICS.
...
You have taken BJP and Indian Politics to such low levels.

BJP has fallen from grace in the eyes of Indian people.

#BJP, was built by great statesmen like #Vajpayee ji, #advani ji, and others. Great values were inculcated into BJP and the Indian political system by these leaders.

From 2014, under the effect of Modi-Shah GangBang, it started from grace and in standard, and reached its lowest in Gujarat.

People think that, BJP has already fallen to its lowest.
But No....

Don't be surprised, if it falls to a further low in some state in near future.

Founders of BJP may definitely regretting their action of allowing Modi into BJP in mid eighties.

WHAT A GREAT FALL SIR....

Let us a start a "Naya Daur" all over again..07-26

google-site-verification: googled8cb12c78271c415.html H_abxalAdC9Cg0xe3NtXHQ6qbrc 






Union road transport and highways minister Nitin Gadkari said on Tuesday that driverless cars will not be allowed in India.

I have some suggestions on this.

I feel that, not only driverless cars, we should not allow cars itself in India.
...
Instead we should go back to bullock carts.

The Gorakshaks can then go and collect all the bulls from the beefys and donate it to the villagers. Making gorakshaks busy would also stop the beef lynching.

This will not only help the villagers own their transport, but they can come to metros and operate "BullockCabs' for transporting IT professionals and others. for mass transportation, we can have 'Bullock Buses' by employing more bullocks per vehicle (Just like multi horse carriages).

Anyhow IT companies are looking for cost optimization. This will be a great help to them. They can grow grass in the empty places as a fodder for the bullocks, and also contribute to the green environment.

We can eliminate pollution considerably by eliminating automation.

In fact, we should have a ministry of alternate transportation, headed by one of the babas, Since Baba Ramdev is busy making toothpastes and soaps, we can appoint Sakshi Maharaj to head this ministry. By giving him work,and keeping him busy, we can reduce his nuisance value.

I never even imagined that so many problems can be solved with just this one solution.
How come no one suggested such a great idea to the Modi government??????

P.S. I have nothing against Shri. Nitin Gadkari. He is a very honest and intelligent politician. He is from my place Nagpur.

As a president of BJP during 2010-2013. He built both the party and its reputation and created a mass base for the party, which Modi used for winning the 2014 election.

Udupi Sri Krishna Mutt organises Iftar party in temple premises 06-27

google-site-verification: googled8cb12c78271c415.html H_abxalAdC9Cg0xe3NtXHQ6qbrc 





Preaching peace and communal harmony, Udupi Sri Krishna Mutt organises Iftar party in temple premises


In a first in the long history of Udupi’s famous Sri Krishna Temple, Muslims broke their Ramzan fast in an Iftar organised at Annabrahma Dining Hall in the temple premises on Saturday. According to The News Minute, over 150 members of the Muslim community had participated in the ‘Souharda Upahara Koota’ (harmony breakfast meet) held in the temple.

On the menu were items like banana, apple, and watermelon. They were also served with cashew nuts along with ‘kashaya’ made of black pepper, at the dining hall. Vishwesha Tirtha Swami himself served the dates to the gathering and urged the members of different communities to live in peace and harmony.

“People from all religions must be tolerant and co-exist peacefully. Muslims have shown a lot of affection for me in Mangaluru, Kasaragod and Bhatkal. They have given their offering during the Paryaya festival,” the seer, who has been closely associated with Vishwa Hindu Parishad, said during the Iftar. He also specifically asked the coastal areas of Karnataka to be more peaceful and set an example of tolerance for the state. He reiterated that “all of us are children of the same creator.”





The members from Muslim community performed namaz on the second floor of the building with the help of Maulana Innayatullah. (Source: The News Minute) 

Maulana Innayatullah, Imam of Anjuman Masjid was present on the second floor of the dining hall building and guided the members to perform namaz after breaking the fast.

MA Gafoor, the Khateeb of Anjuman Masjid and also the chairman of the Karnataka Minorities Development Corporation said that the message of peace, which began in Udupi, must be spread throughout the world as reported by The News Minute. “The Iftar koota and offering of namaz at a temple is a historic decision and a great sign of communal harmony shown by the Pejawar Mutt,” MA Gafoor said.

The event was mooted by Vishwesha Tirtha Swami of Paryaya Pejawar Mutt, who is presently in his fifth Paryaya, The Hindu reported.

Presidential Elections India 2017

google-site-verification: googled8cb12c78271c415.html H_abxalAdC9Cg0xe3NtXHQ6qbrc  




Presidential Elections 2017


We have two excellent candidates this time for the position of the President of India. Either of them will make a very good President. 

We already know, who is going to win. ...

Even promotion and campaigning is not needed as the members forming the voters in the electoral college will anyway blindly vote as per their party instructions. I really doubt if these voters know anything about the candidates credibility and credentials other than their being Dalits. 

Both the political parties, the Congress and the BJP are projecting their being Dalit as the only qualification for them, which is wrong.

One has been a great lawyer, member of the parliament and a governor. 

The other has been a successful career diplomat, a member of the parliament, minister and speaker of the Lok Sabha. 

Their caste, which is just incidental, is being promoted and projected as their main virtue. When Pranab Mukerjee was selected as presidential candidate, no one said he is a Brahmin. Being a 'Chatur Brahmin', it seems a liability to be hidden. 

By selecting a Dalit as a candidate, both the political parties are giving an impression as if they giving alms to beggars (if not throwing crumbs.) 

Dalits are not beggars.....

In case they are so worried about the Dalits, Why have they not made Dalit as a Prime Minister???? 

Are there no Dalits in the elected MPs in both parties, who are capable of handling this position???

The concern of both parties for Dalits is both opportunistic and self serving and it is for display only.

It is time people of India create third political dispensation that can treat Dalits as normal human beings and create situation, where the Brahmins do not have to hide their caste, And Dalits do not have to display their caste. or a political thought process that doesn't promote caste labels. 

CASTE PROFILING IS THE WORST KIND OF CORRUPTION ANY POLITICAL PARTY CAN INDULGE IN.... HOW CAN CALL THIS PARTY CORRUPTION FREE...

Quite naturally, your views are required to keep this discussion inflamed.

Job posting frauds, jobseeker woes, The database sale????

google-site-verification: googled8cb12c78271c415.html H_abxalAdC9Cg0xe3NtXHQ6qbrc  



IF YOU ARE AN HONEST RECRUITER WITH SINCERITY OF PURPOSE AND HONEST TO YOUR PROFESSION, THIS ARTICLE IS NOT ABOUT YOU. BUT I KNOW EVEN YOUWILL AGREE, THAT DISHOENST RECRUITERS ALSO EXIST.


Image credit : Shyam's Imagination Library



On LinkedIn, updates....



Recruiters, job Ads, the applicant’s complaint that there is no response/acknowledgement, or lies from them, or not lifting the phone. 

Why this sudden spurt in job advertisements??? 

What happens with the Data collected?



Motives, Seen/Unseen, Ulterior/Bonafide.

There are many ways your profile is used.

SOMETIMES IT IS EVEN USED TO GET YOU A JOB.....


The main reason for this spurt is the value for the database. A recruiter having large volume gets good value from the organizations. And the one having high value data base is adored by the organizations.


Second angle :  The recruiters take money from a jobseeker and while presenting his profile to the HR also present 25 to 30 (or more) other less attributed ones. These are from the database they collect from sources like LinkedIn updates. The HR obviously gets a large data base to select from. In all fairness the HR selects the best among the available. No guessing needed to know, who gets the job.



Third angle:  

When a recruiter makes a business call on an organization, the first thing the HR asks is the available data base for the available positions in the organization. He proudly presents the huge data base with him and the recruiter is hired as official recruiter for the organization.  He gets a nominal retainer and gets money, whenever he provides candidates for the vacant position. The payment is about one percent or half percent or one month salary, depending on the position and the salary package and has to provide alternative candidates in case people leave earlier than the stipulated time. 

Fourth and unfortunate angle:

This data base is sold on demography basis to the Insurance companies, Real Estate companies, mobile companies, Finance companies marketing shares, mutual funds and fixed deposits. Loans, mortgage, and credit cards.  

There are many start-up service providers, super markets, online stores who buy this data, send you a mail offering a promo code that gives a huge discount for a product or service. They make you register you email id, include you legally in their database, and send promo mails regularly.

Fifth angle:

You now have a new breed of professionals who do the profile whetting or profile check for people. These people buy large databases or sometimes these people write to these recruiters for the details including the addresses and phone numbers of the specified people. They search such people on social media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Whats App, Google+ and others. They become your contacts and mail you a fake job requirement and when they get the data, they hand it over to the profile whetting professionals. Sometimes private recovering agencies working on behalf of banks also get the details of the defaulters. It is heard that some people working for the gas companies are selling city wise Adhar card details bank details to these agencies.

How to discern between good and bad.

It is bad........  
When the compensation package looks too good to be true. (It is actually not True)
When you get a job offer through email, where the job requirements are an exact match of your qualifications and experience.
When someone says that you are shortlisted directly for the final interview and asks you to send a CV with detailed address mobile and landline numbers, alternate contact numbers.
When you have not contacted them, still you receive a communication that they have seen you profile somewhere and shortlisted you for an interview.


Then what is safe?

The safest is when you apply

Through organization’s website

Through reputed recruiter’s website

To the jobs directly posted by the organizations

Sometimes, an employee from the concerned department asks you to directly apply to his personal email id. He forwards your profile with his reference to the HR, and the one selected from the list is considered his reference candidate. He gets a commission, once the candidate completes a certain period of time with the organization. Sometimes the purpose to get relevant candidates for the job. Most of times these are genuine honest and safe.  

In conclusion, I would like to state that not all recruiters are fraud. There are good recruiters doing extraordinary work. You need to discern between the good and the bad. Please visit their websites. The good one will definitely have one. See their work, view their client list. See the people behind it their qualifications, work experience, and the type of organizations they have been associated with. And send the profile to the trustworthy ones only. It does not take more than half hour to verify a recruiters. 

If you find this article useful, please share this with your friends’ followers, and fellow jobseekers. You can also help me in improving the article by sending your inputs on this subjects via comments.

AI and me 06-04

Damodar Padhi,

A good and valid viewpoint. I liked it.

But before we dwell too much into what AI can do or not do, We should think of the inverse of that. 

IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE MAKING HUMAN BEINGS LESS EMOTIONAL TOWARDS THEIR OWN FAMILY MEMBERS. BEING WITH COMPUTERS, ARE WE BECOMING EMOTIONLESS, FEELINGS LESS, EMPATHY LESS. 

The money present generation is earning can take care of all the physical needs, healthcare needs, They also try to buy solace for family members wherever possible spending money. The present generation does have some quantity of dispensable money.

Will there be a situation in distant future, where machines running on Artificial Intelligence will develop emotional feelings and empathy towards human beings and machines, and Human Being will become machine like, where they fix a scheduled time for pouring love and affection on their ones. And at other times, they may say,

"SORRY YOU ARE OUT OF SCHEDULE, LOVE IS NOT SCHEDULED AT THIS TIME". 

The first development (where machines develop emotions) is good. The second, 

well you people know it better than me.
