Old Phuket Town Getting a Face Lift
2012-05-24 14:36:00
One of the things that everyone notices here in Phuket, and just about everywhere in Thailand - overhead cables. There are power cables, phone cables, internet cables, all kinds of cables and sometimes it looks terrible. After living here for so long, I have developed a blind spot for cables, but when you come to an area with no wires hanging over the street, it's very noticeable! It looks so clean and tidy. And there are very few wire/cable-free places in Phuket. Putting all cables underground is expensive and with continual upgrades in technology, can lead to endless digging with cables being replaced. In the old heart of Phuket Town - which blog readers may know is my favourite part of Phuket - a couple of streets were cleared of cables already a couple of years ago. (above) Thalang Road, photo taken December 2012 during the Phuket Street Show (above) Soi Romanee, a narrow lane connecting Thalang Road with Dibuk Road Only these 2 streets had been done, but plans were in p...
Small Companies Face Bigger Threats From Hackers
2012-05-23 08:19:00
The rapid penetration of high speed Internet has surely helped India explore opportunities well beyond the traditional routes. However, this growth has not been supported by security know-how. Hence smaller & medium companies (SMB) are increasingly falling prey to online malicious activities. Source:   According to leading online security firm Symantec, Indian companies either do not posses adequate knowledge for self-protection or build only minimal security cover. How do the attacks work? Hackers routinely employ the much preferred,  Social media route to spread the viruses. When an unsuspecting employee clicks on a infected link, a malware download is triggered. If the companies’ defenses are not strong or updated, this infection then find its way to other computers on the network. Interestingly, hackers prefer poorly defended data stack of government and large private sector organizations. Once the malware wriggles in, it usually escalates its pri...

How To Save Face In China. The Book.
2012-05-11 19:45:00
Unless you have a perfect mastery of Chinese language, symbolism, and social nuances (and who even has that of their own country, anyway?), consider picking up a copy of Anne-Laure Monfret’s Saving Face in China, a practical book aimed at aiding you in making a decent impression on your Chinese business contacts. Monfret is a French management and HR specialist who spent eight years in China. Her book addresses the trickiest areas of Chinese culture through thoughtful explanations and first-hand stories.  As she illustrates, it takes a whole lot more than common courtesy to navigate Chinese business meals, deals, and conflicts, all of which are fraught with complex hierarchies and expectations.  Alternating between big-picture concepts (e.g., western versus Chinese notions of “efficiency”) and concrete do’s and don’ts (do give a nice bottle of cognac as a gift, but never, ever give a clock), the book is a crash course in avoiding major social gaffes. Monfret concedes (an...

The Face-to-Face Manifesto: Back to the Future
2012-05-09 18:00:00
?It is undeniable that Facebook, the king of the social media hill, has accumulated a huge number of users who spend growing amounts of time on the site. Its growth and ability to attract a loyal and highly networked audience is to be admired. For brands, however, it is far from the Holy Grail of marketing. Facebook and other online social networks represent merely one channel out of many that marketers can tap to spark a powerful word of mouth wave. And when looked at in the context of the  ?total social ? opportunity, it is but one very small part of the overall picture and needs to be seen as such. And true to Naisbitt?s  ?high tech, high touch ? megatrend, the fact is that online social networking is no substitute for the power and impact of face-to-face communications. Real world conversations?most of which take place face-to-face?are still the dominant mode of communication, and they are the most trusted and persuasive.?

African-Americans face roadblocks to HIV therapy, untreated depression make
2012-05-02 18:33:00
African-Americans with HIV are much less likely to adhere to drug therapy than others with the disease, according to a University of Michigan study. Moreover, untreated depression may greatly hinder adherence to antiretroviral therapy (ART) for all low-income, HIV-infected patients, regardless of race. The study is the first known to indicate a true racial disparity in antiretroviral therapy adherence, says Rajesh Balkrishnan, associate professor at the University of Michigan School of Public Health and the College of Pharmacy. Less than 30 percent of African-American HIV patients in the one-year study sustained optimal adherence to ART, compared to 40 percent of other HIV patients. ?Our results show an alarming disparity in the quality of pharmaceutical care provided to African-American Medicaid enrollees with HIV,? Balkrishnan said. ?These enrollees have much lower adherence rates to ARTs and a 10 percent higher incidence of depression.?

Murdochs face tough week over scandal

Three days of grilling at the Leveson judicial press inquiry last week extracted few new facts from Rupert and his son James as the 81-year-old casually threw out insults at politicians and described himself as a victim of a corporate cover-up. ...

Special Feature: Instagram Now Belongs To The Billion Dollar Club. Did Face
2012-04-11 11:25:00
Facebook buying Instagram out for $1 billion is the biggest acquisition in the Tech world this year. What was surprising was not the fact that Facebook bought the company but rather the fact that it bought the app for a billion dollars. The amount of money shelled out by Zuckerberg led to some intense online discussions, tweets and articles. Was shelling out this kind of money for a photo sharing app justified? Co-founder and CEO Kevin Systrom started working on Instagram (which came out of an app called Burbn) primarily to leverage the ‘location’ buzz that was going with services like Foursquare. After noticing that more and more people were using the app not to check in but to upload photos of their daily lives.  Systrom thought of launching Instagram exclusively for iOS in October 2010. The Instagram app gained lot of popularity over the last two years. With Instagram releasing for Android last week, Android and iPhone have nearly settled into full featured competing mobile...

FC Barcelona to face Chelsea as expected in Champions League Semi-Final
2012-04-05 07:24:00
When the draw was made last month in Lyon, everyone expected a Barca vs Chelsea match up in the semi-final. Now with both the teams winning their respective Quarter Final ties, that expectation has turned into reality. In normal circumstances players try to underplay past issues, results and other facts into the build up to one of the most important matches of the season. But it looks like the wounds of that dramatic night at Stamford Bridge which was turned on it's head by a Iniesta screamer is yet to be healed for many Chelsea players. I have always maintained that we were pretty lucky to have not conceded atleast two penalties that night. I have heard many of fellow cules arguing that Henry should have had a penalty in the first leg. There is some merit in the argument but as the saying goes "Two wrongs don't make a right", that argument can only be used for the sense of arguing. Chelsea were hard done by refereeing decisions that night and it is normal that their fans and play...

Life Well Lived – Framing Your Face
2012-03-26 23:03:00
As part of BlogHer’s Life Well Lived series, I was asked :What are your favorite tips and tricks for framing and showing off your beautiful face? This is a hard one for me, because I don’t pay too much attention to my appearance beyond some basics. What do I have to work with? I have glasses. I have curly hair. I have a weird round face. I’m not too keen on makeup. I’m a wash and go kind of girl. Because I’m totally squicked out by anything to do with eyes (such as contacts or laser surgery), I’m stuck with the glasses. So I always make sure I have frames I love. Love doesn’t have to equal expensive. I currently have rectangular black frames, which I love, and they were only $20. For my hair, it’s curly and a lot of it. When I say curly, I mean full-on spiral curls. If I were to brush it out dry (which I never-ever-ever do), I have a serious, 70′s worthy afro. When it rains it just gets… Bigger. A lot bigger. Shorter is NO...
