When Dr. Madhabi Islam joined the Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC) in the early 1980s, only a few women worked there. Few women were pursuing higher education at the time and, naturally, the number of female employees, with expertise in the scientific field, was even lower.

During her time on the commission, Madhabi witnessed remarkable progress among women, with some growing up under her direct supervision and many others inspired by her relentless work ethic.

Dr. Madhabi and her husband, Dr. Tajul Islam, a retired professor of economics at Jahangirnagar University, raised three children, who also pursued higher education in various scientific fields. All three – two daughters and a son – have doctorates in different scientific studies.

Madhabi Isam was born and raised in Kolkata. A Mathematics graduate from Presidency College, she earned her M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the University of Calcutta.

In the late 70s she went to Moscow in Russia on a postdoctoral fellowship.

“I met my husband in Moscow,” Madhabi says.

Professor Dr. Tajul Islam had been in Moscow since 1972 for his doctorate.

Soon after they met, they knew they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.

After getting married, Madhabi returned to Dhaka with her husband in 1980 and settled there for life.

In 1982, she joined the BAEC as scientific manager. Over the years, she was promoted to Principal Scientific Officer, Chief Scientific Officer, and then Director at the Institute of Computer Science where the nation’s fastest computer was installed.

“Back then, we didn’t have any universities offering computer science degrees. I was involved in computer programming, system programming, software, etc.,” Madhabi recalls of his professional career at the commission. .

The brightest pen of her career was added in 2007, when she was appointed Director General of the Atomic Energy Research Establishment (AERE) at BAEC.

“I was the first female CEO of the atomic commission,” she said.

She retired the same year she was named CEO. But she never left work.

Madhabi Islam, since her time at the BAEC, was very attached to teaching. During her weekends, she taught at Dhaka University and Jahangirnagar University.

She is currently a professor of mathematics at the American International University (AIUB).

We asked Madhabi how they manage to raise their children so well when they are a working couple with very demanding job responsibilities.

“As we are both academics, our children naturally had this influence. My eldest son and my daughter already have their doctorates. My son studied industrial and production engineering in Buet and did his doctorate at the University from Nottingham after doing her masters in Canada. My daughter studied genetic engineering and did her PhD in the US; my youngest daughter is also pursuing her PhD in the US,” Madhabi said.

“We were both very busy with our work, but instead of leaving our children to private tutors, we taught them ourselves,” she added.

Her husband, Professor Islam, was then Pro-Vice-Chancellor of Jahangirnagar University. He was also a member of the University Grants Commission (UGC). He retired in 2016 and now works as the head of the economics department at a private university.

“During my time, the government retirement age was 57. But my husband retired at 65,” Madhabi said.

When asked if the couple felt lonely with their children living overseas, she said, “I don’t consider it loneliness. Although my children are overseas, I don’t think so. that we are alone. It’s not like that. It’s up to how they want to live their life. I have to give them space to grow and let them build their future.

Witness to the empowerment of women in science

Since the 80s at BAEC, if there is one thing that has inspired Madhabi, it is the exponential growth of women’s participation.

“Women’s participation was low at first. But it gradually increased,” she said.

“When I arrived, you could say I was the first to have a doctorate, but gradually more and more women came forward and did their doctorates,” she added.

“I’ve always told my junior colleagues that they have to prove themselves with their work. That’s what I believe in,” Madhabi advised his juniors.

Talking about what influenced women’s participation more, she replied, “It’s desire. When I went to Vienna, to the headquarters of the Atomic Energy Commission, I found a lot of female colleagues. It inspired me a lot, and likewise, in my house, five other women were inspired by me and they also inspired others at some point, and that’s how the participation of women increased exponentially.

Madhabi said she is very optimistic about the future of Bangladeshi women.

“As I said, I was brought up in Kolkata. If I compare my days there in terms of the scope of education for women, things are better in Bangladesh today. Girls here can stay on college campuses to study,” she said.

“Our girls no longer stay at home after their studies. They want to do something and thus the women here contribute directly and indirectly to the development of the nation”, she added.

When asked if the couple were planning to relocate with their children abroad, Madhabi replied: “Never. I never thought of relocating abroad, it never bothered me. rained. We’ll be here for the rest of our lives.”

She added, “We will be busy with work here and visit our children from time to time. But we don’t want to leave the country.”

Don Carter Jr., ‘one of the hardest-working restaurateurs,’ built a riverside dining destination https://ocupario.org/don-carter-jr-one-of-the-hardest-working-restaurateurs-built-a-riverside-dining-destination/ Fri, 04 Mar 2022 10:20:00 +0000 https://ocupario.org/don-carter-jr-one-of-the-hardest-working-restaurateurs-built-a-riverside-dining-destination/ To know Don Carter Jr. is to know the guy is a storyteller.

To know Don Carter Jr. is to know the guy is a storyteller.

The owner of a handful of restaurants, including three lining a riverside block in Wormleysburg, has a knack for creating lively storytelling and he knows it.

“You don’t have enough space in the diary for me,” Carter snaps.

Sitting in his yet to open new restaurant, Tequila Willies Southwest American Grill, an ode to South of the Border cuisine decorated with colorful murals and reclaimed wood in Wormleysburg, the 67-year-old grandfather covers a lot of territory.

History aside, Carter has a reputation as one of the hardest-working and meticulous restorers in the Harrisburg area.

Restaurants, including Dukes Riverside Bar & Grille and Dockside Willies in Wormleysburg and Dukes West in Hampden Township, serve the masses with outdoor dining, mile-long menus with river rock and pretzel finger foods with crab and relaxed atmospheres.

Concepts are carefully developed and Carter is strategic about every aspect of the operation down to decor, number of parking spaces and menus.

“Now if you go to any of Donny’s places, every inch and every nook is done and he buys all the new gear as well,” said Dick Phelan, founder of the Gingerbread Man chain.

“He really is one of the hardest working people in the business,” Phelan added of his friend and former business partner.

But it hasn’t always been easy for Carter, whose businesses survived floods, fire and the crushing blows of a two-year pandemic. These days, like all restaurateurs, Carter looks to the future.

“I did what I had to do”

Growing up in Lemoyne, Carter said he failed second grade because he wanted to work. He was staring out the classroom window as he waited for his grandfather to drive by in his truck to go to work.

Later, Carter worked for House of Ice Cream, his father, Don “Duke” Carter, Sr.’s ice cream business in Lemoyne and the Silver Spring Flea Market and Carlisle Fairgrounds concessions.

These experiences laid the foundation for Carter’s career path. The Cedar Cliff High School graduate remembers his dad taking him to the ice cream shop two hours before school to unload tractor-trailers.

“I guess it shapes you, it’s who you are. I did what had to be done. Things are very different from what they were in 1962. People’s attitudes and work ethic are so different. So in our family we did what we had to do,” he said. “My old man told me that’s what I was going to do, that’s what you were going to do. It was indisputable. »

His father then purchased part of the Flea Market, a former cattle market that was eventually sold to developers in 2006 and razed for the Silver Spring Square Mall. The way Carter tells the story of his father knocked on the market owner’s door and made an offer on the spot.

“We would never have had anything in our lives if my dad wasn’t a player,” he said.

Flea market business led the Carter family to take over dealerships at the Carlisle Fairgrounds for car shows from Carlisle Events. It was 1975 and there weren’t the plethora of restaurants like there are today. The car-loving crowd needed a place to grab a burger or a hot dog.

The Carters spent 37 years overseeing the concessions, making it a 300-person operation when they left in 2010.

Building a gastronomic destination

Carter’s father saw potential along the west side of the shore overlooking the Harrisburg skyline. He worked as a toll collector on the Walnut Street Bridge and pumped gasoline at the old Atlantic station on South Front Street in Wormleysburg.

In the early 1990s, he partnered with Phelan, owner of more than a dozen Gingerbread Man restaurants in central Pennsylvania. The families bought the old Riverboat Inn and opened the 250-seat Gingerbread Riverside.

The Carters were about to build a foodie destination.

A few years later, they bought out the Phelans’ share in the restaurant. Carter recalls his father sharing the news: “My dad looked at me and said, ‘Go to the river, we’re taking over today. It was a long drive. I will never forget this trip.

He renamed it Dukes after his father’s nickname, something Carter said his father hated. At the end of 2006, neighboring establishments Catalano’s Lounge & Restaurant and Angelina’s Ristorante were up for sale. Believing that it is better to compete with oneself than with others, the Carters bought them off, a move some have questioned. But they had their reasons.

“You can’t control the battle they’re going to fight against you. You better fight,” Carter said.

Not afraid to take a chance

The father of four children, including triplets, is always innovating.

Dimitri Zozos, who has known Carter for about 45 years, said his friend is a master at turning things around, whether it’s restaurant interiors or food.

“Not many people take this chance,” Zozos said. “Donny is not afraid to take risks.”

For Carter, creativity can strike at any time. He finds inspiration in his travels, including a trip several years ago with his family to California where they visited BG’s Restaurant & Brewhouse and Yard House, among other stops.

A few years ago, while driving to his beach house in Ocean City, Maryland, with his grandson, Carter said he noticed workers boarding Bob Evans in Hampden Township. As soon as he saw it, Carter said the lure of the building’s location near the freeway interchange ate him up. Plus, he was sitting in his old stomping grounds along the Carlisle Pike.

He opened Dukes West, a duplicate of the Wormleysburg restaurant with a similar menu in 2016. Although it doesn’t have a river view, it does have an outdoor seating area with roll-up garage doors. Last year he closed Dukes Bar & Grille in Hershey and sold the property.

Now he’s focusing on Tequila Willies, a concept borrowed from one of his favorite stops, The Border Cafe, a Mexican restaurant outside of Christiana, Delaware.

“There were sunken trucks outside in the sand, and the place is all torn up and he just said ‘Eat.’ I took everybody there for six or seven years,” Carter said.

The restaurant replaces the Rock Bass Grill, which closed in 2020. Carter’s son, Erik Carter, added that the business is constantly evolving, no matter the cost. They also never act like they know more about the company than anyone else.

“We’re always moving on,” young Carter said.

“You just do it”

In July 2018, the Carters were devastated when a two-alarm fire, likely started by a brick oven, engulfed Dockside Willies.

The fire shocked Carter, who is meticulous about maintenance. It has its own maintenance team to oversee the restaurants.

“It hurts me that this happened. It was not preventable,” he told PennLive at the time of the fire. “We don’t have faulty equipment. We keep our business going.

It took 15 months to demolish and rebuild the restaurant. Carter was determined to bring him back bigger and better.

For design inspiration, he said he borrowed ideas from outdoor retailer Bass Pro Shops at Harrisburg Mall in Swatara Township. The restaurant is built of wood, mostly from Pennsylvania. Mounted deer heads, duck decoys, boat motors, boats and paddles decorate the walls.

Over the years Carter’s businesses have weathered other disasters and incidents. Flooding in 2011 from torrential rains related to the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee closed Dockside Willies and Rock Bass for a month.

“Is there anything else you can throw at me?” Carter asked. “I look up and say, ‘Hey, a little help. Give me something. Don’t try to see if I can do it. You know I’m gonna do it, but man you just killed me. I need a little help up there.

The pandemic with its roller coaster of mandates and shutdowns hasn’t been easy. Right now, the Carters say the biggest concern is the labor shortage. Other employment opportunities such as warehouse jobs in the area have absorbed available workers and made it harder to compete, he said.

Some days, like last July, the elder Carter says he doesn’t know how they survive.

“We had so many people not showing up for work, I was in a state of panic. I have never been in this business panicked as I was that day. I thought the end of the world was coming. And I couldn’t control it,” he said.

But in true Carter spirit, the family is holding out until tomorrow, and Carter knows the operation is in good hands.

“You just do. It’s who you are,” he said.

After winning his first PGTI Senior Championship title at Digboi and reaching a career-high 6 in the order of merit a few months ago, Chandigarh golfer Yuvraj Sandhu is very confident ahead of the Gujarat Open which will begin Tuesday in Ahmedabad. The 24-year-old golfer wants to maintain his good form for the PGTI season and make the odds count.

“It was great to win the PGTI Championship title at Digboi and get my hands on the trophy. Now I want to do it often and make it a habit. I had trained hard and worked hard on my skills over the past 45 days with my coach Jesse Grewal and my coach Lovish Choudhary for the coming season I hope to do well at the Gujarat Open and aim for a win It is important that I finish in the top five and that my world ranking is well within the 400 mark to qualify for the Asian Games,” said Sandhu, who is now ranked 512th in the world rankings.

“I think the main reason for last season’s results was basically believing in myself and following my work ethic,” he said, while being pleased with his off-season preparations. The season begins with the Gujarat Golf Championship in Ahmedabad and marks the start of a busy and exciting schedule for the young golfer.

“I will play a few Asian Circuit events starting in March 2022, followed by a majority of PGTI events in April, and then I will play the Asian Circuit. At the end of the year, I plan to test myself in the Japanese Tour Q-School,” added Sandhu, who received praise from legend Jeev Milkha Singh and aces golfers Shubhankar Sharma and Ajeetesh Sandhu after winning his first title at Digboi. .

“When top golfers like them like you, it means a lot. I have followed Shubhankar’s career closely and he has been an inspiration. I want to keep the momentum going and take advantage of the opportunities I have in the season,” said Sandhu, who is delighted to finally see that the Indian golf calendar is back on track and he will be able to play some number of events this season.

However, he is quite disappointed with the cancellation of the Indian Open National Championship due to the pandemic. “The Indian Open has been canceled for the third time. It was very disappointing. Leaving this behind, it will be a busy year, there will be a lot more events than last year, now that we let’s get out of the pandemic, so a lot to look forward to,” he said.

ID.me CEO admits the use of facial recognition: 3 uses and benefits of facial recognition https://ocupario.org/id-me-ceo-admits-the-use-of-facial-recognition-3-uses-and-benefits-of-facial-recognition/ Thu, 27 Jan 2022 07:49:36 +0000 https://ocupario.org/id-me-ceo-admits-the-use-of-facial-recognition-3-uses-and-benefits-of-facial-recognition/ Following the previous announcement regarding their use of facial recognition, ID.me CEO Blake Hall gave details that contradicted previous claims.

Following the previous announcement regarding their use of facial recognition, ID.me CEO Blake Hall gave details that contradicted previous claims.

Despite privacy activists criticizing this, people should note three benefits it brings, including an advanced banking experience.

ID.me CEO admits use of facial recognition system

Last year, the Internal Revenue Service changed the way customers sign in and authenticate their identity for certain IRS online services through a mobile-friendly system that relies on trusted third parties and provides an improved user experience.

This new procedure is part of the IRS’ Identity, Credential, and Access Management (ICAM) programs, which aim to provide taxpayers with more options for verifying their identity and accessing IRS resources.

To ensure that taxpayers have secure access to IRS resources, the IRS recently partnered with ID.me, a reputable technology provider of identity verification and login services.

In addition to this, ID.me CEO Blake Hall posted a blog post on Wednesday, January 26 via his LinkedIn account stating that the company uses a technology known as one-to-many facial recognition, which compares a targeted face to a database of other known faces to discover any similarities.

This contradicts the company’s previous public claims, including a recent press release in which Blake Hall said the company only uses a less powerful version of facial recognition called one-to-one face matching, according to The Verge. .

“Our 1:1 face matching is comparable to taking a selfie to unlock a smartphone. ID.me does not use 1:many face recognition, which is more complex and problematic,” said CyberScoop, which spotted the message for the first time.

Due to a reluctance to provide details of operating procedure, which could be abused by thieves, Hall appeared to confess that his previous statement was incorrect in the new statements.

Hall wrote in the LinkedIn post that ID.me uses a specific “1-to-many” verification on selfies linked to government programs targeted by organized crime to prevent prolific identity thieves and organized crime members from stealing. massages the identities of innocent victims.

In this regard, CyberScoop also reported that privacy activists have criticized the company saying that consumers are threatened by both types of facial recognition.

In addition to multiple studies showing that the technology is less reliable on non-white skin, the accumulation of biometric data can pose a significant security problem.

Despite the fact that this feature poses significant security concerns, it should be noted that there are still some advantages offered by facial recognition.

3 Uses and benefits of facial recognition

For those who don’t know what facial recognition is, Tech Business Guide said it is a type of biometric software that can use facial characteristics to compare and analyze patterns to identify or verify a person’s identity.

Most of the time, the technology is used for security, but other applications are also gaining traction.

Due to its potential for a wide range of applications in law enforcement as well as other businesses, facial recognition technology has attracted a lot of attention.

Through this, Tech Business mentioned three benefits of facial recognition.

3. Improved public safety

Facial recognition is used to easily catch burglars, thieves and intruders.

With this method, private and public CCTV camera networks can be analyzed in real time.

The ability to track down criminals isn’t the only use of technology. For example, it also helps people locate missing children and elderly people.

2. Improved banking experience

There is still potential for improvement in the way banks use one-time passwords to access accounts or authorize transfers, despite the fact that they have become more complex.

Biometric identification using facial recognition technology is an option.

The user can authorize transactions just by looking at their smartphone or PC instead of those annoying one-time passwords.

Another advantage of facial recognition is that it enables biometric internet banking.

Thanks to facial recognition software, there are no passwords for hackers to compromise. Even if hackers got a database of personal photos, it would be of little value, because “liveness detection” would prevent them from being used for identity theft.

1. Attendance system

Time fraud is still one of the most prevalent work ethic violations in factories around the world.

The vast majority of employees tell the truth. Even still, a small percentage of employees use favors from co-workers or security personnel to avoid work (and still get paid).

Hourly fraud is not only bad for businesses, but also for good employees.

To register for work, everyone has to go through face scanning machines. From then until the time expires, workers will be charged for their rendered time through facial recognition.

How can you increase your chance of getting a low credit loan?

To improve your chances of being eligible for a loan for bad credit Try to meet the other criteria established for you by the mighty Payday Champ. Additionally, you must provide your application with complete details. Don’t apply for higher than you actually need, as, keep in mind that you’ll be required to pay more than the initial amount.

A quick reaction to a catastrophe and then a long sleeping pattern until hit by another catastrophe, will continue to hurt us as a country. 

Disasters are avoided by updating robust systems, constant monitoring, SOPs, reactivity and preparedness for disasters. All of this was evident to be lacking during the Murree incident, which resulted at the loss of 23 people trapped in snow-covered vehicles.

Question. What is more dangerous than a catastrophe? The answer to this. The United States hasn’t updated its response to events for quite a while. The most basic security measures implemented of the local authorities and tourists could have stopped an escape on a weekend, which turned into an icy death-trap.

How? ‘Or’ What? Answering the right questions can be the very first thing in avoid a similar catastrophe in the near future. What made the local government remain silent for a whole week before the situation to get into chaos? What was the reason for five or January weather alerts from the Met Office that heavy snowfall could result in road closings within Murree, Galiyat, Nathiagali, Kaghan and Naran went not received by the public and families? In light of the bleak forecast for weather, why did not authorities advise families to stay away from making plans to take a weekend trip for the hills?

Mountain stations are limited in capacity. With Murree only being able to house approximately 4000 cars at any given time So, why was the influx of vehicles allowed to remain? The local government has been shocked by the many officials. The question is, what is the biggest surprise? Murree gets snowfall each year and tourists endure long, uncomfortable traffic jams whenever the volume of cars that pass through the station exceeds the capacity of the station by a number of times. This time, it is only the severity of the problem has reached a point of no return.

It’s heartbreaking to see how Hotel owners in the area have profited by causing the suffering of tourists by increasing the cost of accommodation and food. Should we be taught the ethics of professional conduct? Work ethic? Each year, videos go viral on social media showing the way that seasonal business owners take advantage of visitors in the city of Murree. When will these businesses be controlled? Hosts trained and tamed?

For those who travel, the most important tip to keep in mind when getting stuck is to ensure you don’t get into the car while the heater is turned on. If the storm is getting severe and you need to sleep the drivers and passengers might consider it a good idea to sleep in their car. This could lead to accidental carbon monoxide poisoning. Do not sleep in a parking vehicle that has an engine running. The car’s exhaust that is clogged with snow can flood the vehicle’s insides with carbon monoxide. This is which is odorless and difficult to detect gas. The winter and snow tires should be used on snow to ensure steady road grip. In addition, the government can utilize trackers on automobiles and convert congested areas to an open drive-thru for tourists to go in and out in a predetermined time. This can help avoid long traffic jams along the roads.

If you are experiencing an icy storm, stay inside the vehicle! If you go out of the vehicle, you’ll quickly be lost in the wind-driven snow and freezing cold. The engine should be running for approximately 10 minutes every hour to warmth. Keep your eyes open to rescuers. If you are trapped inside a vehicle make sure to keep the windows slightly lower while the heater is running to keep the oxygen level within the vehicle.

The survival kit for snowfall includes an Ice scraper and windshield defroster, as well as jumper cables for the case where the vehicle can’t start itself on its own warm clothes, blankets and flashlights. poached. Also, there must be food and water available within the vehicle’s back vehicle in the event of an emergency and the fuel tank must always be fully stocked. These precautions are vital.

As we begin the new year, we need to take advantage of technology to assess our capabilities and plan plans for responding to a disaster. Without the proper tools, information and the willingness to embrace innovative solutions to the emerging challenges, the local government are likely to continue being shocked by the unavoidable! If they act quickly they could help save lives, properties and their image as a tourist destination.

College serves several purposes for students. Learning to balance a social life, work and school can make or break some. The life skills that most universities give us are so valuable, but are they really worth the thousands of dollars in debt they cost us?

Did you know that university is not the only option for continuing education? Until recently, students had to shell out thousands of dollars to learn a new trade or industry at a university. During the last years, Youtube has changed the situation and has become a medium for a wide range of free and quality information.

Financial expert and founder and CEO of The state of mind of minoritiesJaspreet Singh has long believed that if you play your cards right and find credible sources, you can find out everything on YouTube, all for free. According to Jaspreet, YouTube is decentralizing the education system.

The school system

Let’s take a step back and explore what drove YouTube to provide these awesome resources in the first place.

To understand this, we need to verify the original source of our society’s educational resources – the school system. In America, public education is available for free – until college.

At the dawn of “university age”, students decide whether they want to continue their education or find a job without continuing their education. It is certainly a social norm to fill out college admissions applications, pray for your entry, and feel grateful when you put together enough scholarships, grants, and loans to fund your college experience.

However, nowadays many entrepreneurs are realizing that they can have innovative careers without this step! Their experience, charisma and work ethic begin to mean far more to businesses and customers than any number of years of additional education.

How did this change start? Why isn’t college so appealing anymore? Jaspreet Singh noticed that there is two major factors which affected this shift: accessibility to college and the normalization of indebtedness.

From exclusive to inclusive

First of all, continuing education was more exclusive. It was difficult to get into college, and even more difficult to get a private loan to pay for your education. Therefore, the rich or the very intelligent were certainly favored.

Not everyone could afford, or intellectually manage, the opportunity to go to college. If that were the case these days, many of those currently enrolled in college would not have had the chance to be accepted.

Over the years, the government has started to lay down a plan to make college more accessible to everyone! Exciting, isn’t it? Not exactly. When everyone is special, no one is. Now the government is providing loans to all students who need them. Anyone can get into debt; anyone can go to college.

In response, universities have made the prices of tuition astronomical, because good, they are funded by the government! And admissions processes have become considerably easier, as the more money students receive, the better for college.

The more time passed, the more students had to shell out to pay the tuition fees. And, the less exclusive college has become. When an asset like a college degree becomes commonplace, it no longer has the scarce value it once had. Now university degrees are worth less and less. And they are becoming more and more expensive to secure.

Is debt now inevitable?

In 2020, the average amount of student debt held by a student was approximately $ 30,000. Over the past 10 years we have seen a 20% increase in the average amount of student debt held by students. This continued to normalize the taking of student loans and increase the value of loans considered “normal”.

Today, students generally consider themselves lucky to graduate from a 4-year degree with less than $ 30,000. It seems “feasible” to take on this “small” amount of debt in exchange for a degree. But how long does it take former students to repay? Recent statistics show that, on average, 20 years for borrowers to pay off this student loan debt. Does the loan still seem “doable” and “small” now?

Because of this societal standard of debt, students have been conditioned to think of it as just a way of life; that this is the only way for them to become a successful professional. Most borrowers face the reality of their debt, interest rates, and increasingly insignificant degrees after graduation, and that’s not a pretty reality.

In our society today, debt has become almost inevitable. It is understood as a necessary evil to obtain a diploma, housing or a car. However, Jaspreet discovered that there are many alternatives to this educational debt burden in the online world! The main alternative to formal education today is YouTube (and spoiler alert: it’s completely free).

The power of YouTube

YouTube entered the internet scene in 2005, as the first true platform available to users to create and watch all the videos they loved. It has responded to today’s need for video entertainment, and continues to do so today, among other video platforms like TikTok and Instagram.

YouTube quickly rose to fame, as a medium for video ads, home videos, presidential debates, and later informational videos. Content creators have started to see the need for accessible, informative and useful content for consumers.

Over 15 years later, there is a YouTube corner for everyone. Need help with your biology homework? There is a chain for that. Do you like weird cat videos? Look far. Need to understand how to replace your kitchen backsplash? There is a YouTuber who can guide you.

Essentially, YouTube has created a platform for “experts” to share their knowledge and “newbies” to learn more about any topic they like. You can choose the experts that suit your learning styles and find the corner of the Internet that best meets your needs. Jaspreet has created a valuable channel to share his expertise on financial truths with The Minority Mindset Youtube channel.

YouTube has radically changed the problem-solving abilities of professionals, which means they can solve any program, topic, or industry issue they have in real time, at work, from their phones.

Are you a professional who wishes to build up a wealth? Stay on top of financial terms and news by browsing YouTube. Most of us can’t justify giving up an extra $ 30,000 for a finance degree. Enter: YouTube.

For Jaspreet & The state of mind of minorities – YouTube started out as a hobby. But after a few years of making videos, Jaspreet realized that YouTube was more than just a place to make entertaining videos. It is a place to provide accessible financial education.

If you hear words like crypto, ETF, investing, stock market, and wealth and you’re not sure what these things mean, Jaspreet breaks these concepts down so you can be confident in your financial journey.

Jaspreet used The Minority Mindset to leverage his YouTube channel into something more – a full-fledged financial media company. Jaspreet leveraged the success of his viral YouTube channel in his business to build a brand bigger than YouTube.

For example, if you’re looking for a step-by-step guide on how to get started on the stock market, the team at Jaspreet has put together a free guide that you can read, they have a daily financial newsletter and a blog.

So YouTube lets you learn whatever you want, from teachers who do what they teach. And they offer entrepreneurs the opportunity to educate and speak directly to their audience.

Stay innovative

You can get all the information you want on YouTube, but it’s up to you to continue to challenge yourself to be creative and innovative. The world doesn’t need more college degrees, it needs more people with entrepreneurship and the power to solve problems and find creative solutions.

Employers are no longer looking to see “if” you graduated. They are looking to see if you can learn a new system and find solutions to their everyday problems. You might not have learned it from college, but YouTube can.

While college may have served many purposes for most of us, is it worth the debt that comes with it? Where there are arguably better sources of online education (for example, free), how to continue to justify the debt that accompanies each diploma?

With YouTube’s educational content and your unique personality, you have the tools you need to have a successful career and a healthy financial life, without the burden of college debt.

Indian batter Cheteshwar Pujara scored an important half-century on Matchday 3 of the second test against South Africa in Johannesburg, both in the context of the game and in its form. Pujara was going through a rough patch, but on Thursday he forged a 111-point stand with Ajinkya Rahane – another senior hitter who has been under the scanner due to prolonged struggles. Rahane also scored half a century as India scored 266 points on the board, giving the Proteas a goal of 240 wins.

Speaking at the press conference after Day 3, Pujara said he, along with Rahane, was working hard on his game and both had the “support” of the team’s management.

“We are very confident, there is also a lot of support from the leadership of the team, and we have learned from Sunny Bhai. Every time I have spoken to him, he has always supported me. So yes, there are times when, if you are going through bad form, there will be questions, no doubt about it, but we are confident players, myself and Ajinkya, we know we are working hard on our game , and there’s a saying, form is temporary, class is permanent, so I think that applies here, ”Pujara said.

“I think if we keep working on our game, we have done well for the Indian team in the past, and the management has shown a lot of confidence in us, and it will pay off for sure. It has already paid off, but I think as we keep playing, as a batsman, once you’re back in shape you keep scoring points and it just keeps going up and up, ”he said. -he adds.

While Pujara scored 53 quick out of 86 deliveries, Rahane took 78 balls for his 58.

“I think the partnership with Ajinkya was very crucial because we were at a stage where we wanted a few runs on the board, and I think it’s not just my score but the team’s total at the end. So this partnership with Ajinkya was a very crucial one for us, “Pujara said.

“Well the management of the team has always been very supportive so I would say it’s just the outside noise. The coaching staff, the captain, everyone is behind all the players, and we worked hard. There are times when you don’t get too many points, but the important thing as a cricketer is to follow the right routine, have a good work ethic and keep going. to work on your game because there are times when you won’t get points, but if you follow the right processes you get points on the board, ”he added.

South Africa beat India for 266 in the second set, then got off to a good start as their score was 118/2 at the Stumps on Wednesday and the hosts are just 122 points to tie the game. three-game series.

Ukrainian Culture Minister finds Emily in Paris “offensive” for stereotyping Ukrainians – Film & TV https://ocupario.org/ukrainian-culture-minister-finds-emily-in-paris-offensive-for-stereotyping-ukrainians-film-tv/ Tue, 04 Jan 2022 07:01:50 +0000 https://ocupario.org/ukrainian-culture-minister-finds-emily-in-paris-offensive-for-stereotyping-ukrainians-film-tv/ Viewers rave about the very American Emilie in Paris but not everyone is happy.

Viewers rave about the very American Emilie in Paris but not everyone is happy. Ukrainian Culture Minister Oleksandr Tkachenko is unhappy with the way the show has highlighted stereotypes of Ukrainians living in Europe or abroad.

The hit Netflix show stars a character named Petra who befriends Emily in order to shoplift and make her an ally in order to steal even more.

According to BBC, Tkachenko filed a complaint with Netflix and said: “in Emilie in Paris, we have a cartoonish image of a Ukrainian woman that is unacceptable. It is also insulting. He shared his take on the series via his official Telegram channel just days after the world premiere of the second season. “On the other hand, it’s also offensive. Will Ukrainians be seen as such abroad? Who steals, wants to get everything for free, is afraid of deportation? It shouldn’t be, “he wrote.

Tkachenko also mentioned that he watched the first season and that for him it was “a pretty good entertainment series”. According to a Ukrainian publication, the minister has already obtained a “diplomatic response” from the streaming giant. Netflix assured Tkachenko that “Ukrainian viewers’ concerns about the image of Ukrainian women have been heard. It has been agreed that in 2022 we will be in closer contact to avoid such cases.”

The new season kicked off with Emily (Lily Collins), “the American” who has come to Paris and struggles to assimilate to Parisians and their different sets of rules, work ethic and even boundaries. Emily sympathizes with her friend’s boyfriend Gabriel (Lucas Bravo) and lives with the guilt of cheating on her best friend.

She enrolled in a French course where she met Petra (Daria Panchenko) with whom she later became friends.

This is not the first time that we have seen stereotypes find their way into Emilie in Paris. The first season also featured a Serbian model promoting Maison Lavaux’s De L’Heure fragrance and who, after being interviewed by Emily, shared a lot about wanting to be rich. Serbs in general had to be dug because of their economic rank and their desire to be rich.

In fact, stereotypes play a big part in the show, being the beret Emily wears or the portrayal of the French chain smoking and casually cheating behind their partners’ backs. However, Collins had said in an interview with Elle United Kingdom that the show will be more “inclusive and diverse”.

Much to everyone’s dismay, the second season hasn’t given up on its stereotypical approach and even has a new character Alfie – a Briton who enjoys spending most of his day in the pub watching football.
