desiderata - Show Posts - Mulligan

by Max Ehrmann

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be
greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career
however humble;
it is a real possession in the
changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you
to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit
to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore, be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham,
drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy

US senators to limit IT migrant workers to US

MANILA, Philippines—(UPDATE) Two United States senators are seeking to limit migrant information technology professionals to the US who are allowed through the H1-B visa program, it was learned Monday.

The H-1B visa program allows American companies and universities to employ temporary migrant workers who have the equivalent of a US bachelor's degree in a job category that is considered by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services to be a "specialty occupation," often in high-tech industry. Supporters say the H-1B program helps the American economy by allowing companies to hire needed foreign workers.

According to recruitment expert Emmanuel Geslani, the cap for IT and health service professionals this year is set at 85,000 H-1B visas. He said Asians, mostly Indians, usually get most of the visas.
However, US Senators Richard Durbin (Democrat-Illinois) and Charles Grassley (Republican-Iowa) want to review US immigration policy that they say might be taking American jobs from Americans.
“The reality is that too many H-1B visas are being used to facilitate the outsourcing of American jobs to other countries. Some employers have abused the H-1B program, using it to bypass qualified Americans,” Durbin said in a statement posted on his website.

“I want to set up safeguards for American workers, and provide much-needed oversight and enforcement of employers who fail to abide by the law. Our immigration policy should seek to complement our US workforce, not replace it,” he added.
For his part, Grassley wants to put on hold any increases in the quota for H1-B visas.
“We can’t let powerful outside interests cloud our view of the harsh reality that highly skilled Americans are being passed over for jobs for cheaper, foreign labor,” he said on his website.
“I’m in favor of the program but believe that reforms need to be made so the H-1B program can be a benefit for US businesses and American workers,” he added.

The two senators have thus written the top 25 companies that have received approved H-1B visa petitions in 2007, asking them detailed information on how they used the visa program. These companies were responsible for nearly 20,000 of the available H-1B visas last year.
“The H-1B program can’t be allowed to become a job-killer in America. We need to ensure that firms are not misusing these visas, causing American workers to be unfairly deprived of good high-skill jobs here at home,” Durbin said.

Their letter dated April 1, 2009, was sent to the following companies: Infosys Technologies Ltd., Wipro Limited, Satyam Computer Services Ltd., Cognizant Tech Solutions, Microsoft  Corporation, Tata Consultancy Services Ltd., Patni Computer Systems Inc., US Technology Resources LLC, I-Flex Solutions Inc., Intel Corporation, Accenture LLP, Cisco Systems Inc., Ernst & Young LLP, Larsen & Toubro Infotech Ltd., Deloitte & Touche LLP, Google Inc., Mphasis Corporation, University of Illinois at Chicago, American Unit Inc., Jsmn International Inc., Objectwin Technology Inc., Deloitte Consulting, Prince Georges County Public Schools, JPMorgan Chase  and Co., and Motorola Inc.

Jokes and Humor / Husband and Wife
« on: April 01, 2009, 03:31:56 PM »

A woman comes home and tells her husband, 'Remember those headaches I've  been having.
 All these years? Well, they're gone.'
 'No more headaches?' the husband asks, 'What happened?'
 His wife replies, 'Margie referred me to a hypnotist & he told me to stand  in front of a mirror,  Stare at myself and repeat,
' I do not have a headache '
 ' I do not have a headache '
 ' I do not have a headache '

 Well, it worked! The headaches are all gone.'
 Well, that is wonderful' proclaims the husband.
 His wife then says, 'You know, you haven't been exactly a ball of fire in  the bedroom these last few years, why don't you go see the hypnotist and  see if he can do anything for that? '
 Reluctantly, the husband agrees to try it.
 Following his appointment, the husband comes home, rips off his clothes,  picks up his wife and carries her into the bedroom. He puts her on the bed  and says, 'Don't move, I'll be right back.'
 He goes into the bathroom and comes back a few minutes later and jumps into  bed and makes passionate love to his wife like never before.
 His wife says, 'WOW! - that was wonderful!'
 The husband says, 'Don't move! I will be right back.'
 He goes back into the bathroom, comes back and round two was even better  than the first time.
 The wife sits up and her head is spinning ' OH MY GOD ' She proclaims.
 Her husband again says, 'Don't move, I'll be right back.'
 With that, he goes back in the bathroom.
 This time, his wife quietly follows him and there, in the bathroom, she  sees him standing at the mirror and saying.
'She's not my wife '
 'She's not my wife '
 'She's not my wife ' .
 'She's not my wife '

  His funeral service will be held on Saturday.
