Assam Burns

Delhite: First this guy recommended investing in gold and later gold tumbled down. Later, he recommended loading on Indian Rupees and now Indian Rupees are touching its all-time lows despite ‘Achhe Din’. There
ashedfc: That might be a bit of overstatement, but Yes, now the pendulum is gradually getting ready to swing in Indian Rupees favor.. Every one has written off India's growth story because India refused to allow
looklook: Black money Issue is ongoing from years now and in process black may have turned white by now !!!
febpreet: Keep dreaming web2000. There are too many 'ifs' here.
web2000: If Baba Ramdev/ Anna party wins and they bring back black money then our Canadian dollar will justify the following equation 1 CAD dollar = 1 Indian paisa Looks like time to take some risk by investing in Indian rupees.


Safety when traveling in India

ramar2005: Buy some pant and shirt cloth pieces and have it stitched from your street corner tailor in India. Sometimes the clothes NRIs wear, apart from nasal english gives them away
Fido: Never reveal your Canadian identity in public ... The only thing that saves you from not being distinguished as a foreigner is your skin color .... Use this safety cover wisely .... I have to lie when in public about my reality in order to feel safe. It is slightly more difficult with kids ..
Delhite: - Avoid travelling alone even in public transport. You will be judged by the miscreants that you are from abroad and will try to fool/rob you. In some cases, the people are hypnotized and they give away all valuables they have.
tamilkuravan: Gurram, Not sure if you are giving the advise to Desi's or Gora's. I am sure that Desi's need not worry except take the usual precautions like SMS the vehicle number, donot walk in the dark, try not to use accented english and preferable get a male companion to be with you. Murali


Modi completes One Year at Delhi

ramar2005: Modi gave an very emotional speech from Mathura. He must have been upset that there is so much criticism even after all his hard work, while somebody like MMS thought swinging another hand while walking
febpreet: Then, why blind labeling bhakt jee?
Blue_Peafowl: no certification needed
Fido: How do you know that Congees are his own ?? Jealousy for what ... no results ... I wonder who would be ....
Blue_Peafowl: True , I'm one of the Bhakt - at least I'm happy that he is less corrupt than ur own Congee's - by the way by looking at corruption record of of UPA - This is indeed ACHIEVEMENT About result on his work will wait ...
Fido: Unlike Kejri bashers , I have nothing against any politician/s as long as they are doing good for the country . I don't agree with the above ... AB actually did a commendable job in show casing India


Jayalalitha convicted and jailed

ramar2005: One observation from the telecast of people dancing in front of JJ's house over her acquittal is that all of them are 40, 50 or even 60 plus. They belong to the old generation of MK's "Manohara"
MKBLR: Former Special Public Prosecutor of the case pointed out the mistakes in the calculations used by the HC judge who let JJ out. Now the judge is reviewing the information. Hope he will do the right thing.
elmer fudd: Putting Jayalalitha on front page will do no good. Case in point, just look at news reports on what is going on in Chennai. There is carnival atmosphere, all so called aam aadmis. Mainstream media is just another gang member, and is hand in glove part of the drama.
ramar2005: JJ got acquittal may be because she happened to worship the correct gods this time around, unlike the last time when the case was in the sessions court. During the time JJ was out of power, projects

looks like pakistanis protect their muslim women but rape others.double std

northyork_desi: There is an easier solution. Just take away the PM access, you wont see the user again.
BlueLobster: I can't unfortunately, but I'm sure GG can. And based on what I've seen in the past few days, I would recommend he does that.
BlueLobster: No I don't get your point at all because there is no point. And if by "u", you mean me, I'm not from Pakistan. I'm not muslim either. But have enough sense to realize that the generalization that sits at the top of this thread is totally unwarranted.
sumjo: BL, can you please do something to ban this person, her antics & stupid posts are getting too much for us to handle!! I am no lover of Pak & neither am I from that community, but the way she is spreading hatred via CD about a particular country/community doesn't make sense....there are other websites for that. Let's keep CD "GARBAGE FREE" Suggestion to HW: You should seriously think of changing your name to CW = Crazy Woman!


Exodus of millennials threatens Metro Vancouver economy

mcg7: with all these real-state skills - you can make 3 time more $$$ than any regular IT job :) you really love Vancouver :up:
febpreet: Unfortunately, you can't compare much due to a completely different geography and the cities' magnitude. This is all I could think of: South Surrey / White Rock: Oakville Surrey/North Delta = Brampton Mississauga = Burnaby and New Westminster Markham = Richmond Milton = Langley
febpreet: TK is right, except an average Joe can never afford to buy a house in West Van. The place is damn beautiful, better than the rest of the Vancouver infrastructure, and even feels like living in a high quality resort or Switzerland. Trust me, I am not exaggerating. So, forget about West Van unless you're a high profile Celebrity or a highly paid Executive.
lemon925: People in Vancouver who also have lived in GTA, would you be able to do a city by city comparision for Greater Vanc and Greater Toronto for Jobs life style .. LINK I am mainly interested in knowing if we assume Toronto = Vancouver then which cities in Greater Vancouver is like Mississauga, Oakville, Brampton and Milton.

montrealEEE: Thanks for your suggestions. Initially I was put up in a temporary accommodation in bois franc. It was just a 15 minute ride to office by bus. But the place was expensive and no shops nearby. I chose plamondon because of the Indian restaurants nearby. I have to take a 5 minute bus ride from plamondon to cote des neiges where I live.
Blue_Peafowl: Good rental site: LINK I still do not understand Why you need Plamondon Metro ???? It looks like you are close to either DDO or Chomedey - Give me more closer picture. But forsure Orange line is your best bet for your work. Namur: if you like desi people around - cheap


Some queries- landing to collect our PR cards

tamilkuravan: Hello_Toronto, Canadians are not that much starved to outsource work. If you are CA and looking to find consulting jobs in a gap or 2 month, I am sorry to say that you will never get it. You first need to work here to get the foothold of the profession. CA may be highly respected in India, but it means nothing in Canada.
hello_toronto: hello FH thanks so much,i will go through the sites you have suggested.
Full House: - Processing times. : This is not carved in stone. But generally they adhere to the time mentioned, except when holidays interfere. These days quoted here are for you to receive at the location that you ask them to send it to. LINK JOBS THAT EVERYONE DREAMS ABOUT.
hello_toronto: tthank you so much for your responses. FH: I don't have any business idea, my husband is CA and he hasjust started his own practice. Now, we are not going to find or try job there in Toronto, but would definitely want to see what consulting oppurtunities it can offer to us. ifwe get some oppurtunities , we can move there very soon, may be next year.

IT IS TIME WE RAN THESE DIESEL CARS ON WATER. Mmmm Dreamers...

Full House: NO... It is not a dream. Please read on... Audi is making fuel from air and water Audi has begun production of a synthetic diesel fuel made from water, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen. Unlike fossil fuels, which release additional carbon into the atmosphere, Audi’s “e-diesel,” which is being produced at a plant in Dresden in conjunction with the German alternative energy company Sunfire, has a net-zero carbon footprint because it is made with carbon dioxide taken from the air. It’s not the first carbon-neutral fuel, but it’s being hailed by the German government, which provided support for the plant, as an important milestone in the movement for cleaner energy. “If we can make widespread use of CO2 as a raw material, we will make a crucial contribution to climate protection and the efficient use of resources, and put the fundamentals of the ‘green economy’ in place,” Johanna Wanka, Germany’s minister of education and research, said in an Audi news release announcing the production of the initial batch of e-diesel.


Americans in Canada racing to give up passports

Fido: Hi I was surprised to read this news article signifying a reverse trend of sorts... Interesting :) LINK In every U.S. election, there are always threats by Americans that they’ll flee to Canada if the candidate they hate wins. Those threats rarely come to anything. But thanks to a 2014 intergovernmental agreement committing Canada to provide the banking information of Americans living here to the IRS, there appears to be mad rush by some Americans to renounce their U.S. citizenship, and stay here - forever. According to Global News, almost four times as many U.S. citizens as normal dumped their citizenship in March. The reason is an obscure regulation that forces Americans to fill out a Foreign Bank Account Report if they have an account abroad that totals over $10,000 in a year, according to the Wall Street Journal.

What will be most demanded jobs in IT from 2015-2020

Panasonic: Thank for your sincere advice. I have question informatica is kind of programing ? I saw its two part data warehouse and data integration. Do you know any collage or institute ? I have checked most of the collage does not offer cognos BI and Informitica program as second career.
northyork_desi: Panasonic, Here is a course one of my acquaintance completed. This is not expensive, so wouldn't need you to go for second career. Its based on Microsoft technology, but the basic logic of BI is the same. LINK Since
tamilkuravan: Northyork_Desi, Your point is well taken. I accept that many in Govt. colleges are Indian's and Chinese but the difference is that these people actually taught in their respective countries / Gulf and are highly talented. If you go to Private career
febpreet: BI-DW is very vast field, brother. So, I don't think you would be able to master it even after the formal training/education. Sorry, to be blunt. My suggestion is this. Take up a small module/area and master it quite well. One that I could think of is to pick up an ETL tool - Informatica, Cognos, Oracle, Microsoft, etc.
