I came across an article in Forbes, outlining some simple tips to read Chinese Language.
Being one of the earliest languages and can rightfully boast of a highly evolved Culture,I regret that China has been being the bamboo curtain.
The rulers in China seem to believe that even opening up of information on Chin’s Culture might hurt their present political Culture, thereby affirming that their present reign is contrary to Chinese Cultre of yore.
It is a shame that one is left with scant information on one of the world’s earliest civilizations.
I am posting excerpts fro the article which teaches one to read Chinese.
ShaoLan introduced her system in a rousingly well-received TED talk in February in Long Beach, Calif., the video of which should go live in May. She says she’s gotten more than a thousand emails and LinkedIn invites since then from people who want to get started. In the meantime, she has published a Facebook page introducing her concept. (If you go to the Facebook page, you have to start from the bottom of the timeline and work up, because the lesson follows a particular order.) She’s also published a charming placeholder of a Web site here.
“ren,” the radical for person, illustrated with head and feet:
Two people make the word follow. Three is a crowd. A person with arms stretched wide is “big.” A person inside a mouth is a prisoner.

Close on the heels of LinkedIn and Yahoo, now it is the turn of Dropbox to be hacked.
Popular cloud storage service provider, Dropbox has acknowledged that the security of some of its users’ accounts was compromised. The users were getting spam emails from hackers who managed to get their hands on the account details of the users of these compromised accounts.
The matter was escalated when some of the Dropbox users started receiving spam mails on their email accounts associated with their Dropbox account. The cloud storage service provider, however, took some time to find pout the root cause of the issue and has tried to fix it by helping the users improve their accounts’ security.
Dropbox has apologised to the users about the security breach through a blog post on their official blog saying, “Our investigation found that usernames and passwords recently stolen from other websites were used to sign in to a small number of Dropbox accounts. We’ve contacted these users and have helped them protect their accounts.”
Taking quick actions against the same, Dropbox has taken appropriate steps in notifying the affected users through email, urging them to change their passwords right away. Reportedly, the company has also asked the users to change the passwords of their other social media profiles including Facebook, Twitter, Gmail or any network for that matter that are attached with Dropbox or share common passwords.
Further, in the coming weeks, the company has confirmed to take following steps to beef up its security system:
Two-factor authentication system requiring a couple of identity proofs – password and a short-term code sent to the user’s mobile, while signing into the account.
Automated mechanisms that will help in identifying suspicious activities.
A new page that lets you examine all active logins to your account.

English: CREW Advisory Services is a New York based recruiting firm. The company’s website is http://www.crewadvisory.com (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Corporate Companies and Business Houses are reported to be paying extra Service Charges(Commission is euphemistically called) for recruiting female Employees.
The HR Consultants are being paid an extra of between 2-10 % for Recruiting Females.
Deutsche Bank pays @% more and some others up to 10 % more if the Organisations hire Females.
We do not know how much more incentive the Company’s HR Department gets paid.
Sodexo does not accept candidates by the Recruiters if female candidates are not included while Kotak Mahindra goes in for only females for internal jobs.
One can understand if the recruiters are advised and paid more for sending qualified and experienced candidates irrespective of Gender.
All of us know why women are selected as Receptionists and Customer Care Center Executives.
To pay more in the form of Commission because the candidate is a Female..?
Is this not more damaging to Women?
Feminists, Where Art Thou?
Want to know how India is shaping up in the social mediaspace? The country is doing great and the good folks at Nielsen India, made a video to explain exactly that. (They seriously deserve a like on Facebook for creating this awesome video.)
They revealed several interesting statistics. Of the 80 million Indians online, one-third of them are on social media sites. Breaking down the stats, there are about:
Unless specifically asked for Do not attach your Photo.
Do not mention your your Hobbies/Interests unsolicited.
Avoid Spelling mistakes,this will indicate either you are ignorant or slipshod.
Avoid posting your height,weight,native place-At times these will prejudice your chances.
Do not provide References unless asked for and if you are providing ensure that the Referrer has a few good thing to says about you.
Do not refer to relatives or employees of the organisation to which you have applied unless specifically asked for.
Pay attention to details in your Resume like Qualification,Experience,job content,proficiency in skills.
Do not provide false information.
In short, do not volunteer information.
Do not write ‘I am aspiring to be a part of the team that is going places and in the process would like to develop my skills’
This is inane as you do not know the Company personally and HR Managers know what you are writing is completely insincere.
Remember you are not begging, you are providing n opportunity for the Employer to hire a good hand to enable him to earn more.
So never be defensive and at the same time never be arrogant.
