Top 14 IT Managerial lessons from World Cup

At the risk of being very wallstreetish, india's loss may do good to exams and deliveries and revenues, even though it may shave off half a % of india's growth this year on sentiment.

Bhai indian cricket mein bahut problems hain magar ek do baat seekhne layak hain - for a manager:

1. Hiring decision(sehwag) is the most important decision for a manager's career(dravid). Dil se naheen, dimag se khelo.
2. Live project par use na khilao jo kabhi bhi bug likh de (sehwag).
3. Jo lagatar do bar kharab khele use teesre match mein bitha do (uthappa).
4. Enthusiasm (zaheer) can be more valuable than experience (sachin)
5. Talent (dhoni) is not enough. Technique (skill set) bhi mangta hai.
6. If you want a manager (chappell) to do well, to uske sar par doosra (vengsarkar) na bithao.
7. Fancy resume ya ppt ya english (chappell) ko hire mat karo. Code likhwao (moody).
8. When asked to lead a team with too many stars, run.
9. Don't promote a great coder (dravid) into a bad manager (dravid).
10. Manager ka pichhla record (pura cup, western australia never won a thing under chappell) persists.
11. Current form, not past record is important. 1900 mein aap bakait the to ye apka problem hai.
12. Rely on those who do well under pressure and in crunch games (close to deadlines).
13. Don't go by reputations. Go by performance.

14th one is from amway... Agar koi team 16 match mein 12 mein 50 over na khele to 13wan bhi naheen khelegi.

Stupidity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. In that sense, it's different from perseverance. You persevere with something (like hard work) that's known to work often in your other people's experience and has an economic justification.

You persist foolishly with (Agarkar) that's known not to work.

Exceptionally Smart Kid - Solves Rubik Cube in minutes!

This is one of the smartest kid I have ever seen... I'd hope she gets good education - even if it means having to take loads of Student Loans for her... it will payoff big time...

Taped by cell phone equipped with a cam, shows a man throwing off his wife from the 2nd floor at Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. On Monday Feb.12.07, she died in the hospital an Hour later. The man would be facing the death penalty by chopping his head off if found guilty. The story is the talk of the day here.

This is very unfortunate. I wonder what crime she committed - served him hot tea? Jeez!

Saudi Kidnap, Rape Victim Faces Lashing for 'Crime' of Being Alone With Man Not Related to Her

A 19-year-old Saudi woman who was kidnapped, beaten and gang raped by seven men who then took photos of their victim and threatened to kill her, was sentenced under the country's Islamic-based law to 90 lashes for the "crime" of being alone with a man not related to her.

The woman is appealing to Saudi King Abdullah to intervene in the controversial case.

"I ask the king to consider me as one of his own daughters and have mercy on me and set me free from the 90 lashes," the woman said in an emotional interview published Monday in the Saudi Gazette.

"I was shocked at the verdict. I couldn't believe my ears. Ninety lashes! Ninety lashes!" the woman, identified only as "G," told the English-language newspaper.

Five months after the harsh judgment, her sentence has yet to be carried out, "G" said she waits in fear every day for the phone call telling her to submit to authorities to carry out her punishment.

Lashes are usually spread over several days. About 50 lashes are given at a time.
