Indians and immigration

I heard Jorge Ramos on how the demographics would change and the Hispanics wont be a minority and most importantly ‘this nostalgic view of America won’t work’. Canada, America and West Europe are the parts of the world which should accommodate, not discriminate, while Asia, South America and Africa will not be friendly with immigrants at all….For instance in our own country there is no doubt in our mind that Bangladeshis are trying to get in and we should keep them out. Its not an emotive issue. Indians who talk about the immigrant unfriendly attitude of Trump are completely ok being immigrant unfriendly in India….for that matter even within India. anti south indians in the north which then changed to anti biharis….or non marathis in bombay…So while Trump is an ugly and probably dodgy kind of guy there are real reasons why he has a support base. The reality is that there is a bunch of white people who took over the place and started making this country…a lot of others from around the world were brought in, came in, sneaked in….and now they want to have some say in running the place…which the white people dont want to give away….and why would they….Imagine its 2180 and somehow this is a Hispanic privilege country or a Hispanic Asian privilege country….it would be tables turned…and the same way you see white people reacting you would see Hispanics and Asians being immigrant unfriendly….

Steve Jobs Turned Down A Partial Liver Donation From Apple CEO Tim Cook

TIME

During the final years of Steve Job’s life the former Apple CEO was in desperate need of a liver transplant but refused his successor Tim Cook when he suggested a partial one, reveals a new biography set for release on March 24.

In the upcoming book Becoming Steve Jobs, written by Brent Schlender and Fast Company Executive Editor Rick Tetzeli, Cook reportedly went through a series of tests and discovered that a partial liver transplant was feasible, but said Jobs heatedly turned him away.

“Steve only yelled at me four or five times during the 13 years I knew him, and this was one of them,” Cook says in the book.

A long—and winding—road to CEO for Credit Suisse’s new recruit

Fortune

Had it not been for a coup, Tidjane Thiam would probably have not risen to the top ranks of the financial world.

For a few months in late 1999 and early 2000, Thiam— who was named as the new CEO of Credit Suisse on Tuesday—was a prisoner of the state, under house arrest, in his home country of Côte d’Ivoire. Thiam was then asked to work for the military government that had taken over control of the country. He said no. A few months after he was released, Thiam fled the country. He has not returned.

“He would only want to work with a democratic regime,” Aka Manouan, a childhood friend of Thiam, told The Telegraph in 2011. “Democracy, accountability, the rule of law, the strength of the market, these are the things very close to [Thiam’s] heart.”

And that’s perhaps why, despite the fact that he has…

9 Subtle Signs You Could Have a Heart Problem

TIME

Thanks to more education about healthy eating and advancements in treatment, fewer people die of heart disease than in the past. That said, clogged heart arteries are still the number-one cause of death in the United States. Although heart attack symptoms can be a scary first sign of trouble (and keep in mind women have different symptoms than men), sometimes the body offers up more subtle clues that something is amiss with your ticker. The following is a list of symptoms that might be worth a chat with your doctor. But they may also be caused by a bunch of other things, so don’t freak out. (Many of these are also symptoms of anemia, so check out 15 Signs You May Have an Iron Deficiency.) Only your real doctor—not Dr. Google—can really tell you if these symptoms mean anything at all.

You’re extremely tired

This isn’t just lack of…

Mercedes isn’t losing any sleep over the Apple Car

Andy Grove of Intel said only the paranoid survive. This kind of complacency is what has made them lose the design war to BMW

Fortune

At least one major car executive is less than concerned about the idea of Apple getting into the automotive game.

Dieter Zetsche, chairman of of Daimler AG and head of Mercedes-Benz, said he isn’t losing any sleep over the rumors of an Apple Car, according to Australian car website Motoring.

“If there were a rumor that Mercedes or Daimler planned to start building smartphones then [Apple] would not be sleepless at night. And the same applies to me,” he said.

Rumors of an Apple Car have been swirling for weeks thanks to reports that the Cupertino tech giant has been hiring engineers for an automotive project. It’s still unclear what an Apple Car might look like, what it would do or if it will ever exist at all. Still, Apple getting into the car industry would be a major new entry to the sector.

The real boss behind Coke’s secret formula

great relationships constitute the real secret formula of enduring business success.

Fortune

If you could line up all the senior executives inside Fortune 500 companies over the years and rate them by power and influence, one guy would stand ahead of most of the CEOs—and outrank every other executive who vied for the brass ring and, like him, never got it.

Donald R. Keough, the former president and COO of Coca-Cola who died Tuesday at age 88, was arguably the most powerful non-CEO in recent memory. Guiding Coke’s global expansion and steering the company through management upheaval, Keough outlived a parade of Coke chiefs and probably mattered more than any of them.

Warren Buffett recalls the moment 30 years ago when Coca-Cola [fortune-stock symbol=”KO”] made one of the worst blunders in marketing history—by replacing flagship Coke with a new formula, calling it New Coke, and resisting a firestorm of consumer anger. Roberto Goizueta was CEO back then, and Keough was his president…

Here’s an overview of some of the most useful Google search tricks, from basic tips to new features just recently released.

1. Use quotes to search for an exact phrase.

This one’s a well-known, simple trick: searching a phrase in quotes will yield only pages with the same words in the same order as what’s in the quotes. It’s one of the most vital search tips, especially useful if you’re trying to find results containing a specific a phrase.

2. Use an asterisk within quotes to specify unknown or variable words.

Here’s a lesser known trick: searching a phrase in quotes with an asterisk replacing a word will search all variations of that phrase. It’s helpful if…
