Donald Trump

For much of the past year, Donald Trump had lived something of a charmed political life.

Sure, he scapegoated Mexican immigrants and Muslims (not some, but all). He lobbed crude insults at a female journalist and another with a disability. He attacked his opponents with monikers such as “Lyin’ Ted” and “Little Marco”, mocked Jeb Bush for being “low energy” and compared Ben Carson to a child molester. He even went after previous Republican presidential nominees, including 2008 nominee John McCain, who he said was no war hero because the North Vietnamese captured him. And he demonstrated, repeatedly, that he was immensely unqualified for the job of President of the United States of America.    Continue reading

 I just went to the Singularity University Summit and here are the key learnings.

In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide.
Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they got bankrupt.
What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 year – and most people don’t see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on paper film again?
Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore’s law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time, before it became way superior and got mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs. Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution.
Welcome to the Exponential Age.   Continue reading

Richmond Hill High SchoolRichmond Hill High School makes a Spectacular Turnaround – Principal Neil Ganesh Credits Teamwork

Richmond Hill High School has made a spectacular turnaround. Its graduation rate has increased by over 10 percentage points.  There is a different tone in the building and the culture of the classroom is one that promotes success. The students and the staff have bought into the vision of the school and they take pride in articulating its mission.

Richmond Hill High School was founded in 1888. It rose from humble beginnings to become a top learning institution in Queens and indeed New York City. According to the Richmond Hill Historical Society the first faculty had a staff of three teachers and the first graduating class in 1901 comprised of only one graduate. Since then student numbers have increased as more people moved into the area.

Comment on May 9, 2016 by Hezakya Mixologist

Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s proposal of a temporary ban on Muslim immigration to the U.S. drew criticism from Muhammad Ali, the legendary boxer and one of the most well-known Muslims in America.

In a statement, according to the Associated Press, Ali did not mention Trump by name, but he said the suggestion to ban Muslim immigration “alienated many from learning about Islam.” He called on Muslims to “stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda.”    Continue reading
