Read in the German subway today: “If you did not make it to an It-Girl (comment: a young female media celebtrity and a socialite), come to us and become an IT-girl!”
Coming soon in my blog: Hannover trade fair, the place where technology meets IT. I am in motion, jumping from a stand to a stand looking for new technological partners. I’ll keep you posted 😉
As a matter of fact, Russians have a huge problem with construction of residential complexes. Very often you give the first investment for a new house, which will be never built (fly-by-night companies). Or your developer gets bankrupt because he made wrong calculations. Or you are lucky and you get your flat (finally!) – but most parameters are wrong, therefore you go to the court and lose the fight, as it appears that your papers were falsified..
Paying at least 10% for the mortgage and not getting ANY flat at all became a nightmare for Russians. Have a look (using Google translate) at a black humor website , which is showcasing how a usual “flat of your dreams” may look like.
In a few words about my work with interns..
A new monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to help the other monks in copying the old texts by hand. He notices, however, that they are copying copies, and not the original books.
So, the new monk goes to the head monk to ask him about this. He points out that if there was an error in the first copy, that error would be continued in all of the other copies. The head monk says, “We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son.”
So, he goes down into the cellar with one of the copies to check it against the original. Hours later, nobody has seen him. So, one of the monks goes downstairs to look for him. He hears sobbing coming from the back of the cellar and finds the old monk leaning over one of the original books crying. He asks what’s wrong.
“The word is celebrate not celibate,” says the old monk with tears in his eyes.
