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
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
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!

Disaster Management starts with ‘D’ but begins with ‘U’

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
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.
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.
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.

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
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.
