The story that I like the most is “Big Bill”. The personality of each character, either the main or minor characters, is totally different and that made the story pretty interesting. The theme “friendship” made it even more appealing to me. Therefore, I had chosen this story to be the one that I will be writing about in this essay. The main character of this story is Tulsi Babu. He is different from most ordinary beings, as he is not surprised by almost everything. He thinks that “everything” has a reason behind it. This part in the story would convince you in that, “‘Tulsi Babu went back to his desk. ‘I can’t see what’s so special about a double rainbow. Even there were twenty rainbows in the sky, there would be nothing surprising about that. Why, one can just as well go and stare at the double-spired church in Lower Circular Road!’” Sometimes, he will add a little sense of humour that will make his words interesting. Tulsi is a part-time herbalist and an upper division clerk of Arbuthnot & Co Company. He is scrupulous in his work and the sentence “Baba gave adequate directions which Tulsi Babu noted down carefully.” tells us so. Not only is he hardworking, he also treats, Bill, his “ex-pet” very good. He gave Bill the best when it was in his house and he was really sad while saying goodbye to Bill the last time. He even lost his appetite when he sent Bill back where it had came from, although you cannot see from his facial expression. He is also very thoughtful towards other people too. When he discovered that Bill attacked his neighbour’s cat, he sent Bill away the next day. And when he knew that it had killed almost every single living thing in the forest, he fed it with herbal medicine that would turn Bill into a vegetarian. In my opinion, he differ a lot from his looks. Inside, he’s a kind and humorous guy, but outside, he looks strict. The minor…...

In some cases, this is true. McDonalds is one of the most widely known and popular fast food restaurants around the world. It may not be a place for a romantic date, but there are not too many places you can go have a dinner with your family with the bill coming out to be under twenty dollars. Sure the food may be unhealthy, but it is the cheapest and most efficient route to satisfying your appetite. This may be why McDonald’s has become such a powerful food chain. But after visiting I realized the many different features that make this restaurant so attracting to people. Around lunchtime at noon, I walked across the parking lot, I noticed the drive through was packed with people just waiting to get their meals and get on the road. So I walked inside the doors of the McDonald’s, passed the cashier, and took a seat in one of the booths in the dining area. The booths were big and comfortable and they were all along walls of the dining area. This area was designated for people that wanted to sit down and enjoy their meals. People are spread out around the tables and booths far enough to where they are not invading other peoples conversations. ...

Early in his life, Bill was very bored at school and his parents knew it so they were always trying to feed him more information to keep him busy. Bills parents finally decided to put him in a private school where he would be challenged more. The Lakeside private school had just bought a new computer when Bill arrived and he was immediately hooked. Within a week he had surpassed the knowledge of the computer teacher at Lakeside.

...Bill Gates Case Study 1. Microsoft earned 25% net income in 1991. How does a firm manage to earn such a high profit? Bill Gates set the standard. Gates made both economic and business history from 1986 to 1991. His company Microsoft’s income statements grew from 197 million dollars to 1.843 million dollars, in just five years! Gates and Microsoft came up with two products to sell. One was the operating system; the other was the application software. The application software was the best seller. It took shelf space and it was also user friendly. Microsoft began introducing its most important office products. Microsoft Works, a combined program which featured typically word processor, spreadsheet, database and other office applications. Towards the end of 1986, Apple Mac. released their first application software. Microsoft Works would later be sold with other Microsoft products including Microsoft Word and Microsoft Bookshelf. In 1987 a reference collection introduced that was the company's first CD-ROM product. Later, on August 8, 1989, Microsoft would introduce its most successful office product, Microsoft Office. Microsoft office included Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Power Point. Obviously Bill Gates couldn’t make and sell these products by himself, so he had to hire well. He had to hire “nerds” that knew what they were doing, and could work in his environment. With his employees they made the operating systems and the application software. But why were......

...ECPSC- 2013 CURRENT AFFAIRS HANDOUT NO 13 LOKPAL BILL 1. Background. (a) The Administrative Reforms Commission (ARC) while recommending the constitution of Lokpal was convinced that such an institution was justified not only for removing the sense of injustice from the minds of adversely affected citizens but also necessary to instill public confidence in the efficiency of the administrative machinery. Following this, the Lokpal Bill was for the first time presented during the fourth Lok Sabha in 1968, and was passed there in 1969. However, while it was pending in the Rajya Sabha, the Lok Sabha was dissolved, and so the bill was not passed at that time. (b) The bill was revived in 1971, 1977, 1985, 1989, 1996, 1998, 2001, 2005, 2008 most recently in 2011. Each time, after the bill was introduced to the house, it was referred to some committee for improvements a joint committee of parliament, or a departmental standing committee of the Home Ministry, and before the government could take a final stand on the issue, the house was dissolved. Several flaws have been cited in the recent draft of the Lokpal Bill. Meanwhile the activists of India Against Corruption (IAC) have prepared a draft for the bill called Jan Lokpal Bill. 2. Composition of Lokpal.

Bill French

...BILL FRENCH Bill French picked up the phone and called his boss, Wes Davidson, controller of Duo-Products Corporation. “Wes, I’m all set for the meeting this afternoon. I’ve put together a set of break-even statements that should really make people sit up and take notice – and I think they’ll be able to understand them, too.” After a brief conversation, French concluded the call and turned to his charts for one last checkout before the meeting. French had been hired six months earlier as a staff accountant. He was directly responsible to Davidson and had been doing routine types of analytical work. French was a business school graduate and was considered by his associates to be quite capable and unusually conscientious. It was this later characteristic that had apparently caused him to “rub some of the working folks the wrong way,” as one of his coworkers put it. French was well aware of his capabilities and took advantage of every opportunity that arose to try to educate those around him. Davidson’s invitation for French to attend an informal manager’s meeting had come as a surprise to others in the accounting group. However, when French requested permission to make a presentation of some break-even data, Davidson acquiesced. Duo-Products had not been making use of this type of analysis in its planning procedures. Basically, what French had done was to determine the level at which the company must operate in order to break even. As he put......

Big as It Is

...Big as it is, Canepa Design is easy to miss. The discreet boxy building sits just off a busy street in the quiet northern California town of Scotts Valley, just up the winding highway from Santa Cruz. But for car lovers, this place beams like St. Peter’s, an inviting treasure chest stuffed with classic automobiles worthy of pilgrimage. Vintage racing Porsches rub sheetmetal shoulders with iconic ‘60s Ferraris, which sit mere wheel-wells away from the last Shelby Cobra to exit the factory gates. Some vehicles are being restored for their wealthy owners, others are being spiffed up to hit Canepa Design’s showroom, while a few enjoy some mechanical pampering before being returned to their places of honor upstairs in the on-site motorsports museum. “I never get tired of coming to work,” says Bruce Canepa, the racing driver who since 1980 — the heyday of his professional exploits behind the wheel of all manner of Porsche beasts — has quietly turned Canepa Design into one of the foremost auto restoration and classic car sales shops in the nation. “Besides, I’m too obsessed with being in control of all the details to stop coming in.” Obsession and control can be a dangerous cocktail. But not in Canepa’s case. His hands-on personality means the cars coming out of this 70,000-square-foot shop often exceed the exacting standards of his monied clientele. When Canepa leans over the exposed engine bay of the aforementioned 1967 Cobra 427, he points out that “everything on this......

...More views against the RH bill are pouring in. Apparently they have not been considered by the Lower House Committee before the bill was endorsed to the entire body for approval in the plenary session. Hence for the enlightenment of our legislators and the entire citizenry, presented here are some more of these views, one of them coming from a lawyer Atty. Rex A. Salvilla who clearly and ably refutes some stand of the bill’s advocates: “First, the advocates say that the opponents of RH bill are anti-poor for allowing population explosion. This is not true because the opponents, like the advocates are also for population control. Both differ only on the method of control – the advocates thru condom which cost money while the opponents thru natural family planning which costs not a single centavo but only mere discipline on the part of the spouses So, who is anti-poor? It is the advocates. Second, the advocates say that they are pro-choice. This is not also true. The draft bill contains a penal clause punishing by imprisonment and/or fine those obstructing the use of condoms and promoting family planning. Is this not like tying a person to a post and telling him, “You are free”? So, where is “pro-choice” here? In fact, the bill is a “no-choice” piece. Third, the advocates say that the Pope supports condom use. This is interpreting the Pontiff out of context. The Pope simply provided an exception in the same way that God has also provided exceptions to His own commandments.......
