Chinese way to prevent cheating at schools is probably the most effective in the world. This device is placed on the head of the student in a way that the student can only see their own work. Teachers of the world, take a note!
“Do not speak to me when you see me. If I want to speak to you, I will do so. I want to save my throat. I don’t want to ruin it by saying hello to all of you sons-of-bitches.”
— Edward Mike Davis – CEO and owner of the Tiger Oil Company. Memo to his employees.

Every year, over 10,000 graduates leave the United States. They go back to their home countries, taking the knowledge with them. At home, they invent new products, services and technology. This adds great value to their home countries. Sadly, this also removes great value from America.
Instead of giving green cards to these graduates – mostly young and talented – America sends them home, loosing opportunities it created itself. India and China, the largest recipients of these graduates, become the largest beneficiaries. Which is great, but why would you want to remove top-tier knowledge from your own country in favor of another, when knowledge is responsible for most of the world’s wealth today?
Isn’t it time to rethink borders? Qualified labor should not face border restrictions, in fact – they should be encouraged to stay wherever they go.
It’s funny how PR agencies still think bloggers will post their ads for free. As a blogger, I regularly receive emails from PR agencies pitching me for free placements. The email is constructed in a way that I should think the agency is doing me a favor by sending their “exclusive” ads. They assume I will be thankful for the tip, drop everything and post their ad. This happens with many other bloggers I know.
Do PR agencies really assume bloggers pick up and post ads for free? Has anyone told them this doesn’t work like that? There is more good content out there than time to post it.
Like in real life, there is no “free lunch” in online media space. This is something PR companies have been failing to learn over the last 5 years when blogging went mainstream. They still treat bloggers as earned media, which is wrong. They even do it in the UK, one the most mature media market in the world. And that is something I learned today.
Get over it, guys. Ads rarely create value for the audience, content does. We know it, you know it. Check the price tag, stop begging.
