  1. 1. It gave you LIFE… now its our turn to reciprocate! Save nature... and it will save you. Disaster management today…. alive tomorrow Nature is always transient and ever changing. Innumerous natural phenomena keep on taking place in our atmosphere around us which we might not realise the worth of, such as the rain, winds, soil erosion and even the rare earth tremors. But these natural phenomena are sure to have an impact on almost the entire Earth. In older times, people came up with legends to explain these phenomena. When a volcano erupted, they believed the volcano was angry, or that the gods were demanding a sacrifice. Today science, technology and history have helped us to understand the causes behind these events, so we can take steps to counter or even prevent these events instead of merely fearing them. However, such phenomena still turn into disasters, affecting a lot of people in every nook and corner of our planet where a culture of prevention has not yet taken root. If we destroy the basic parts of nature such as coral reefs, forests, or fragile mountain plants, which hold the soil intact, we are destroying the natural barriers that protect us from tsunamis, drought, land slides, floods and other hazards. India is traditionally vulnerable to natural disasters on account of its unique geo-climatic conditions. The most recent example is the wrath showered by nature upon Kedarnath. The ecosystem, all over the world, is under severe stress because of unprecedented population growth and increase in economic activity, which have pushed the world to limits that it could not handle. But we must remember, Nature makes sure that it retains its original shape however ruthlessly humans try to change it for their own needs and greeds. It is high time now! this menace of improper disaster management is staring our mother-earth right in the eye. We need to be concerned! We have lost sight of the fact that our very existence depends on nature. Take rain,for instance. To an average city-dweller, rain has very little bearing on his day-to-day life; in fact, its often an inconvenience. But to a farmer, rain signifies life as it makes his seeds of hard work sprout up as plants. But problem lies in the answer to the question that How can disasters be prevented? With the development of sophisticated early warning systems, we can see the first signs of upcoming famine almost a year ahead of time. However, these early warnings would only prove helpful if they lead to early action. But Disaster management failed miserably once again and the growth story has become irrelevant. Disaster Management Aact has been enacted but is is neither formulated nor implemented anywhere in the country, as if the disaster management bill has been gathering dust in the Parliament. Most ironical fact is that the government and the media have neglected the plight of the unfortunate local Himalayan people who are staying there, bearing serial atomic blasts of natures wrath! We must understand that investment in mitigation and preventive measures are more cost effective than expenditure on relief and rehabilitation. So We all must join our hands to combat this havoc and protect our nature. small steps from each of us are sure to make a difference. The need of the hour is to stir the conscience of the people towards taking preventive as well as corrective steps for our mother-earth/nature as it has endowed us with the gift of life!

  2. 2. As we all know that stock markets deal with uncertain up and down in stocks prices. So it is very risky to the new investors to maximize their wealth. It may be possible that they will sacrifice their money. There are some super investment tips to the investors to become “Smart Investors”. 1. Super Plan: Before start investing, make a proper plan according to the Industry, in which you are interested to invest. The Stock market is not a place for the foolhardy persons who like to deploy their precious funds. Before investing, every investor must do his own thorough research and analysis. It is always better to be conservative. Then make your plan. 2. Water the flowers and cut the weeds: It is very important to be cautious about up and down in the prices of stocks. Smart investors have to sell the losers and ride the winners or gainers. At periodical intervals, you must objectively and critically analyze your portfolio and evaluate the performance of the stocks. 3. Diversification: According to me, investors should not invest in one type of shares or in one industry. So don’t put your all eggs in one basket. Diversify your investment decisions. 4. Don’t be greedy, Have patience: It is very important to have patience because in obsession to get rich quickly and investing in dubious stocks, we completely forget the basic tenets of investing. So, the best thing to do is to hold on to blue chip stocks and stick with them through thick and thin to get a multi bagger. 5. Tax: Start collecting those receipts and thinking about the tax implications of your investments. Hiding in bank saving accounts or term deposits is not getting you ahead in real terms. The two best government-sanctioned ways of avoiding tax are super and franked dividends from shares. Finance and Investment Tips -By Anurag Yadav MBA Student
  3. 3. Candidates Rejection Based On Cultural Fit Over half of organizations (59%) have rejected a potential candidate based on cultural fit, research from assessment and development consultancy Cubiks has found. Around 500 people from 54 countries took part in the research. According to the research, 82% of respondents said measuring the cultural fit of candidates is an essential part of the recruitment process. However, only around a third (32%) of respondents said their organisation actively measures it. And just over half (54%) of respondents say their organisation has a clear definition of their culture. Most respondents (85%) agreed cultural fit is harder to measure than job fit, and 75% said it was harder to develop. “This suggest that many organizations still need to work on implementing effective and robust processes for assessing cultural fit, particularly as such a significant number do not have definitions of their culture in place,” said Cubiks’ CEO Martin Smith. “Organizations need to take time to explore and understand their culture, and only when this is clearly defined can they begin to assess in a robust way how individuals fit with it.” Face-to-face interviews were the most commonly used method of assessing cultural fit. Cultural fit questionnaires were also seen as a valuable tool, although not commonly used. A Survey Report
