The 1 ppm mentality of India in education.

This article talks about some educational paradigms of India but gives the following anecdote to the end.

Belated Happy Feynman Birthday. 11/may/2013. He was born this day in the year 1918. 8 years younger to my maternal grand father. Which is why I am always amazed by Feynman. My grand pa was a farmer in a village of India and a teacher, a renowned teacher at that in his locality. He was paralyzed in his last years and died in 1996. Thats again exactly 8 years after 1988 demise of Feynman. Hence they both lived exactly 70 years of age. They were both outstanding teachers and artists {my grand pa was a fabulous artist, a fact I had forgotten over the years, he drew many things for me when I was about 7/8 years old, including say Shiva or Ramayana, at an instant’s notice by me}, Feynman was a bright star in the Glove, my grand pa only in his locality which perhaps extended say 100 villages if not more. Feynman was a farmer in some sense because of his hard work. But my point is Feynman’s vigor. A fact of amazement, perhaps since Feynman didn’t grow in a village of India but the communities of advanced localities. Perhaps Feynman was simply the highest standard of exuberance. My grand pa was lively and funny and loving but Feynman was a womanizer. I don’t know about this secret of my grand pa. My grand mother always crushed my interest in knowing such matters.

The academic sky of Asia.

4. Rep of Korea: 14% organizations in top-100. Korea is 1.2% of Asia population.

Result: Korea provides about 12 quality organizations for each percentage of its people, normalized to Asia. Korea provides 1 quality organizations to about 7% of Asia population.

{quality orgs for its own people, normal to Asia; Korea 12 orgs/%, Japan: 7 orgs/%, China: 2orgs /%, India: 0.1 orgs /%}

{quality orgs for Asia population; Japan: 1 to 7%, China: 1 to 7%, Korea: 1 to 7 %, India 1 to 33%}

I haven’t scanned other countries such as Israel and UArabE. I am sitting in a cyber cafe to do this analysis and the keyboard was installed in 1556, so basically can’t type efficiently, its like pushing a stone with your elbow hair, like there is any.

To tip or not?

As you read from what Wikipedia has compiled countries like Japan and Australia prohibit such. Many countries are very low tip expecting countries. But there are many not just the USA which demand or expect large tips in many different kind of services. I don’t have experience in many countries, but I have lived for 7 years in US and Japan and have been to close to 500 cities in US/India and Japan. SO I really have first hand experience of what tip means in these 3 countries.

The newer policy on EAv

So here is the total policy now. I compute div/share/share-price, multiply that by 25 (8th division of my maximum without desserts) and multiply that by “portfolio-selfbuying-factor or in language of Physics “proper-buying” which could be fractional, or integral+fractional)

So (div/share/share-price)*(8th division of share-max)*(proper-buying).
