Yes, You've Still Got Mail 29.3.2017 Slashdot
Veteran technology columnist Walt Mossberg, writes: Like radio, email isn't dying, it's just changing. Over the past decade or so it's become much more like postal mail. It's not the place you expect to find a greeting from a friend or even a timely update from a professional colleague. Instead, it's a mix of junk mail you hate and discard, plus bills and missives from businesses you also hate but can't discard. [...] Still, despite all signs to the contrary -- and many predictions -- email is not dead. In fact, some analyses suggest that it's growing. Few people can afford to be without it. It hasn't expired; it has morphed. There are lots of reasons email persists, even as faster and simpler forms of communication proliferate and your personal communications likely have mostly migrated elsewhere. But one big one is that new types of media channels rarely totally kill off old ones, even though everyone predicts they will. The old ones just adapt and change. Back in the day, television was supposed to ...

Abrupt dismissals spark turmoil among federal prosecutors 13.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Two days before Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered dozens of the countrys top federal prosecutors to clean out their desks, he gave those political appointees a pep talk during a conference call. The seemingly abrupt about-face Friday left the affected US attorneys scrambling to brief the people left behind and say goodbye to colleagues. It also could have an impact on morale for the career prosecutors who now must pick up the slack, according to some close to the process. The quick exits arent expected to have a major impact on ongoing prosecutions, but they gave US attorneys little time to prepare deputies who will take over until successors are named. "Its very, very gut-level reaction," said Steven Schleicher, a former prosecutor who left Minnesota US Attorney Andrew Lugers office in January and was still in contact with people there. The request for resignations from the 46 prosecutors who were holdovers from the Obama administration wasnt shocking. Its fairly customary for the 93 US attorneys ...

Mounting manpower: Is India generating enough employment? 12.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Unemployment has been falling steadily since 2009, from the peak of 9.4% to below 5%. However, with the accelerating availability of labour (one million per month) due to our demographic dividend, the issue of jobs is a very serious one. In the run-up to the elections in 2014, BJP made a bold promise to generate 10 million jobs a year for the youth who comprise two-thirds of India's population. While its ambitious initiatives like Make in India and Smart Cities Mission have garnered international investment interests, they remain largely on paper. If the economy is growing at 7% despite a slowdown, manufacturing GDP has been steady for the last five years and jobs are not growing in proportion, then one thing is clear: More work is being done by a fewer number of people. It is important to note that this kind of growth is capital-intensive in nature and it is not translating into higher employment. This leaves us with two possibilities: Either the growth is happening in non-employment-centric sectors or ...
