Breast Cancer Setting in Early amongst Chinese Women

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Epidemiological studies have often proved that breast cancer instances are predominant amongst Caucasian women (read American white women).

The occurrence of breast cancer in terms of race is less than 20 percent amongst Asian women and approximately 18.7 percent amongst ethnic Chinese womenfolk. Despite this heartening fact, the cause for alarm amongst the younger generation of Chinese women is that the greater incidence age is reaching lower thresholds.

Beyond Britannica

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

This past Christmas, I gave my children a complete bound set of the Encyclopedia Britannica, thinking that this would be a wonderful way to spur their education and satisfy their curious minds.

The feedback I got from my eldest, in high school, was that first, this didn’t “count” as a gift, since it was an educational item, and second, that it was doubtful that the information was “current,” since in his mind, anything in hard copy was dated before the ink dried. From his middle-school younger sister, the feedback was marginally more positive, as apparently she appreciated the “graphics” and “format,” as “old school cool” but still, helpful.

To Take the Lead Globally Korea must build the Ferrari of Hand-held Devices

Monday, September 27th, 2010

It may seem odd to suggest that Italy be the model for Korea in its future development in technology. Although Italy does not hold the dominant position in high volume manufacturing that Korea possesses, Italy offers exactly what Korea needs to jump into the next stage of economic development: an emphasis on fashion and ergonomics. Italy has established itself as the undisputed leader in design, with such names as Gucci, Prada and Ferragamo in fashion and in the automotive sector with leaders such as Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini. The aesthetic sensibility and artistic quality found in Italian products are what Korean products lack today.

Let us start with the basic facts. Korea does not need more technology at this point and it does not need more manufacturing capacity. It needs to build cutting-edge devices that will capture the imagination of users and define new fields, along the lines of the I-Phone.

Let us consider the case of handheld devices. Korea must dominate the high-end of handheld devices and use that position to make its brand value unassailable along the lines of Gucci or Ferrari.

The Power of Blogging

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

Blogging is free, easy to begin and does not require you to invest anything more than your time and energy. Your blog can be about anything – a study of a topic, viewpoints on the world around you, your personal experiences, a photo feature, a travel diary or even a daily update of your life.


Commoditization of Connectivity

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

If there is a success story in the 60 years of independence that has metamorphosed India onto the world stage and has benefited the common man, knowledge based services and the elite of society, it is the fourth dimension of transportation TELECOM; after Land, Sea and Air.  

Not only is telecom connectivity an important part of the effort to upgrade the national infrastructure, but it is also required to establish India on the global map.
