Robin Williams and Me: The Killer Among Us.

Robin Williams  Person    Giant BombWhy Robin Williams?

I’m not a fan of celebrity worship, nor do I feel especially comfortable perhaps taking advantage of human suffering and loss by writing about a total stranger’s suicide.  That said, Robin’s suicide disturbs me. It touches a sore nerve, it hurts. He seemed a safe, reliable positive out there in the world, a source of joy and humor and, well, life. He was fine as far as I knew, just fine, then BAM!: dead. It’s shocking, saddening, makes the world seem less safe, less reliable.

Why me?

Clearly there is no “Robin Williams and me”, no relationship beyond talented performer and fan. I use the phrase in another sense. Why does his death hit me harder than most? What does it mean?

Events’ meaning partially come from our reactions to them, our responses. Like so many, I have thought over Robin’s many fine performances, the incredible eruption of intelligent banter he could produce like no other, the sensitivity and deep humanity of his calmer roles.

Still, my personal response centers on Robin the man, suffering from mental illness badly enough that he saw no escape but death. Like so many others, a man with friends, family and a life well worthy of living, I imagine a happy man much of the time because such is so common with depression. Like so many others, I imagine a man who seemed fine at one point, disappeared from view a bit without attracting concern, then dead. Just like that. Dead

#95 Unbounce: HR Consultant

unbounce-about-sholeh-atashAh, Unbounce. A fresh faced tech company being dominated by a bunch of extroverts. Sounds like the worst case scenario for every introvert I know. Unbounce is located in Gastown, Vancouver in a lovely building, with many lovely people. The downside? They have an Operations Manager that is the epitome of Mean Girls, not too mention a few tomatoes short of a salad. Enter: COO, who is great by the way, easy going, up front, politically correct with a great sense of humor, and overall- the professional ideal for the young startups trying to attract top talent. WTG. On the other note, the Manager has Lion King on her desktop, not as in “I’m a fan of Lion King”, more as in, -let me flash you my Macbook mid interview to show you how cute Simba is, giggle giggle- wait, aren’t you like 45? WTF? This doesn’t make you young, it makes you stupid. But whatever, I’m a nice person, I have a lot of fucks to give, and therefore will indulge said manager…. Cut to: Interview Room. The OM plays cool for most of the interview, that is until the COO has to excuse himself for another meeting he is about to run late for. I shake his hand, we go our own ways. I’m left with the OM, who quite literally turned into a vicious cat monster. She starts telling me how she is the “Angel of the Office” “Everybody loves me” and I kid you not, she rants about her looks, her intellect, her education, her position, how important she is, how much everyone loves her, how she is always rescuing the CEO and the COO, what would they do without her? Her position as a saint in the office cannot be matched, and this is why she thinks there is not a place for me there. Not to mention, she goes on about her people, she’s Iranian and thinks she’s the only coloured person in the interview because I am visibly white- she never asked me if I was part Arab (which I am), and believe me, I don’t take shit from my own people. HAHA, seriously? You’re going all Mean Girls on me because you have a vanity and self confidence complex? Oh please, knock yourself out. Because when your superiors actually find out how you’ve been undermining them to candidates and have been running down the young people in the company behind their backs, I don’t want to be there when that ship sinks. Oh boy. But wait, I’m a young person, right? There is Karma, right? Well, I think it is my social and ethical responsibility to ensure that Karma comes back, just the way a young, inept person would do it. Therefore: Sholeh Atash consider yourself tagged as the most selfish, immature, self-destructive individual who looks down on introverts and successful people. #SholehAtashStupid . I hereby sign this post from the HR gal and Karma herself. You’ve been made. Unbounce, do me a favor, hire great people for this position first, and forgo the rest till you get the problems figured out. Hire an HR firm to do some work for you so you have an outside opinion.

Update: Unbounce has decided not to continue with the HR hiring…….? Hmmmmm I wonder why the position fell through……. Instead they are hiring Sholeh an assistant. I guess it is kind of hard for her to nail herself to a cross every week, you need help for those things.

#96 Richmond Open Road: HR Coordinator

Richmond Open Road Auto GroupAh, Car Lots. The home of the greasy salesman who uses so much brylcreem you can feel your hard earned dollar bills sliding out of your wallet the moment you walk through the door. The Automobile industry is a dangerous place. With all that hairspray, hair gel, cologne, and chrome suits, it’s amazing one doesn’t slip on the prestige of scum on the way to the front desk. No wonder there’s always carpets laid down in these places… I was met with stares and gazes of fierce wild animal kingdom competition. In walks a buxom blonde who’s bust button was looked to be trying to leap from between her breasts and likely fling into my eye, or forehead if I was lucky. After some catty remarks and a couple hip shakes I reassured her I was there for an HR position, not a sales position. She tossed her hair, turned around and I’m guessing either mouthed something or made a facial expression, but whatever it was, it put the rest of the crowd at ease of my appearance. They simmered down… After waiting 15 minutes I was introduced to the HR Manager when upon sitting down in an office upstairs she said, “You’re just so young.” Really? That’s what you have to say? “I’m just so young”? As opposed to what, “You’re just so old”? What does that even mean. Granted I look a little young for my age, however I attribute that to fact that I don’t drug or alcohol, no parties, never got into that scene. She couldn’t shut up about it through the whole interview. I eventually interrupted her and told her that this seems like something that was bothering her and maybe we should go our own ways on a friendly note. She was shocked as hell, but I felt like telling her she was immature and above all, inappropriate for bringing it up.  Her questions were also that of, “Really? Your were the HR Manager previously at this agency??” With utter disbelief. *rolls eyes*. No, I just make up random shit on my resume to see if I can get away with it, what do you think? Of course I was the Manager there. For the sake of pudding, geez. We did end on a good note as I politely excused myself and she shook my hand and escorted me out. The wild kingdom resumed their merciless gaze upon me heels as I left. Never. Again.

#97 Securiguard Services: Ops Coordinator

Parking-BannerWell this entire process was interesting to say the least. Lets start with the online psych evaluation. Riddled with all the questions to do with morals vs science you could imagine dumbed down in the most simple of formatting. I’m not sure whether to be insulted or happy I made it through the initial online testing. To my surprise I received an email at nearly 1am from HR requesting I come in for an interview. Wow, these people don’t sleep! Ok, fair enough, it’s a job for me! So I replied and the interview was set up bright and early at 7am. I met with HR in the lobby where I was escorted up an elevator and into their office. HR was polite, straight forward, and to the point. I was told it was the “People and Culture Assessment”. Which to me, always sounds laughable and hilarious because I am formally trained by the Federal Government in assessment and profiling, so when people start throwing those words around, I can’t help but snort a little. Congratulations, you took Psych 101. Well, it seemed like a positive review and I was escorted out again with a very firm handshake. Got a call not too much longer later to come in and meet with the Regional Director and the Ops Manager. Enter: bitter overworked cop of 30 years who enjoys playing tough guy and gets his rocks off by getting a rise out of people -uber control freak-, and loud mouthed blubbering sweaty carrot top -with horrible sock apparel-. These guys make quite the team. They’re overworked, underpaid, and have serious control problems. Even in the interview they got into an argument between themselves about the meaning of a question. No, no. I reassure you, this was not some clever ruse to tell if I was the sort of person who was a good mediator or had good boundaries. These guys just had it out like two petty school girls fighting over the last XS knit camisole at Victoria’s Secret. Well slap me in a lace thong and call me an angel, because these boys couldn’t care less what was going on around them, they were way too into themselves and their little kerfuffle. Then I got a lecture from the former cop about communication and something about he would always rather I raise my hand if I had a questions as opposed to asking someone else. Whatever. It’s an interview, I don’t want to know you’re entire teaching ethic, thanks bud. Well you can imagine my response, a little mixed and confused. It’s funny because they have their slogan and ethic, as posted above, “We Do What We Say” which in the interview with people arguing among themselves…. Ummmm…. yeah, I’m already sensing a little illusive work ethic here…..

#98 M1 Innovations: HR Admin -Policy

ft_interview_mainOk, so admittedly I lied on my resume for this job and withheld a lot of my experience. I replaced words like manage for supervise, cut the budgets I had managed into about 1/3, and finally I withheld some of my (ahem* most of my) education. Oh, go call the HR police and sue me. Some of us just want a good job and are sick of the employment fight. So naturally, I got a call for the interview. I went in for the interview and as fast as I walked into the office, I nearly walked back out. The front office reception was equipped with two juvenile employees. Not as in “young”, but as in just out right immature. One was laughing and pointing with the TV blasted over the loud sound of the hipster radio, watching the Jimmy Fallon Late Night Special. The other was busy hammering away at the keyboard with snide remarks and a kick of the heel to the desk every now and then. I waited 15 minutes, as they were running behind. And no kidding, because apparently this was the type of company that interviews EVERYBODY and their dog. There were six people and counting in the wait room with me, all lined up, looking for work, and ready to go. I looked next to me and saw a very attractive woman who undoubtedly lied on her resume too. She was way too mature and polished, but I couldn’t blame her. We chatted briefly and she was called in for her interview and I wished her luck. I was called after she had come out 10 minutes later. My interview I imagine was much the same. Some guy in a flashy suit and bad tie interviewed me and his first question was, “Tell me a little about yourself.” Are you kidding? ‘Tell me a little about yourself?’ What are we, going on Oprah? Who the hell are you, my therapist? What the hell kind of question is “Tell me a little about yourself”? Oh I see, we’re gonna be fuckin’ BFF’s. Well in that case, I’m a Taurus, my favorite colour is red, my first pet was a puppy named Shep, and I enjoy star gazing on the beach and waiting for the sunrise. But as foolish as his question was, I somehow doubted this was what he was talking about. So I played ball and engaged appropriately. Then he proceeded to tell me all about sales. sales. sales. sales. How important sales people are, how everyone wants to be in sales, how working in sales is the most prestigious job and most sought after. Oh murder a kitten why don’t you. Sales is no longer “trendy” it was at one point, particularly in the 1980′s, however once all those reports were released on deception and slimy sales people, the popularity went down. IT, Events, and Social Media is where it’s at today. Anyways, the interview felt like a K1 application and I was relieved when it ended. “We’ll call you.” He said. I turned off my phone.

Update: the position is still open over a month later.

#99 Purdy’s Chocolates: HR Trainer

Purdy's 002One of the better interviews I have had was at Purdy’s Chocolates for an HR Trainer position. I met with 2 lovely ladies, business savvy and no doubt, shrewd business women: VP HR, Senior Ops. The best part of my interview is that we met at one of the factory locations and everything smelled like a chocolate dream. I walked along a cute little cobblestone path to the entrance of the building, rang a doorbell to a little wooden door, and was met by name by the VP HR. She directed me through a set of doors into another room where I met her colleague. We sat for approximately 50 minutes in interview, and they were refreshingly honest with me- they had just wished I had more manufacturing experience. Thank you for your honesty! You’re aces in my books! But they told me they would still contact me later. Ok, sounds good. I assumed they were ultimately just being polite, however a month later, they did phone and told me it was a tough decision between myself who had all the policy and training experience they had hoped for and between another candidate who had over ten years of manufacturing experience and training. The went with the other. Oh darn! Well, I was still quite happy that they called and I wasn’t just a random candidate with a check or x by my name. Purdy’s, I will continue to buy your chocolates!

#100 – iData Research: HR Manager

photodune-648788-happy-and-successful-executive-mI had an interview with iData Research in downtown Vancouver for the position of HR Manager. They are in a prime location around the 700 block of West Broadway on the ocean. Not too shabby. I arrive at the location on a very hot day dressed in my business attire. Old white leather chairs that were once a thing, looking a raggedy, sit in the foyer. The office is half assed divided, with no walls, but cubicles dividing the foyer from the rest of the office. Ok, so they’re on a budget, aren’t we all? Fair enough. I end up waiting nearly a half hour because the original hiring manager has been replaced by guess who…. the CEO. The CEO will be interviewing me. Okey dokes. After I first arrive I find it difficult to sit down immediately as my stomach has butterflies and the heat from outside has been killing me and I need some time to adjust to the A/C inside. Well so much for that as the receptionist barks at me, and orders me to sit. You’ve got to be kidding? I don’t care who you are, no one barks orders at me unless it’s one of two things 1)dependant on a business merger or high profile account 2) an emergency. Go fuck yourself, cuz sweetie, bitch’s be crazy, and this shit ain’t happening. I politely smile at her and explain I’m feeling a bit humid, but thanks for letting me know I can make myself comfortable. She repeats, and I feign interest in a magazine and stand and read for 5-10minutes to try and center my nerves. 20 minutes later the CEO fetches me and we meet in his office. Typical CEO office, he has pictures of his family around. One particularly large gold framed photo of his son, a small silver frame about 1/3 the size of the gold from of his daughter, and a family photo with his wife. He’s nice enough, polite, good etiquette. Then he tells me that they’re happy to move to Stage 2 of the interview if I could wait about another 5 minutes he would send in the Operations Manager to meet with me. Ok, sounds good. Then, back into the office he comes and suggests another meeting room. So I head into another meeting room and wait for the Ops Manager. Aprox 5 minutes later, enter in a wiry woman with wild curly hair who closes the door and flashes a ridiculously toothy grin, shakes my hand, and sits down across from me. She begins to interview me as per second stage, typical. Mid way, she interrupts me to proceed to tell me all about herself, all the hard work she has done, how long it has taken her to get where she is, and so on and so forth. It ended up taking up the rest of the interview time. When we finished she shook my hand, smiled, and all of sudden said, “Well aren’t you just so pretty and smart” in such a tone it would make Dame Edna cuss. All I could think was, “You fucking bitch. Don’t you project your shit on me.” And I knew she wouldn’t give me the job. And somehow, I was very much ok with that.

 Kumar Impex

At Kumar Impex, we believe business brings people together and we continuously strive to strengthen that belief, therefore, promoting mutual benefits.

In 1991, the Indian Economy was going through a phase of major reformations in the fields of liberalisation and globalisation. It was at that time when, our founder, Mr. Ashok Garg recognized the potential of Indian companies in exporting a vast range of finished products and industrial raw materials to the regions of Africa and Middle East. The export potential in several countries of these regions was tremendous as many were not involved in mass production of finished goods at the time. Rather, these countries were mostly dependent on the regions of North America and Europe to meet their own demands. However, importing from these regions was quite expensive. Owing to the easy availability of raw materials, abundant workforce, relatively competitive power tariffs, indigenous manufacturing processes and economies of scale in India, it was felt that the huge gap in the demand and supply of finished goods and industrial raw materials could be met by providing them with less expensive yet quality products. It was with this vision that Kumar Impex was established in 1991. Thus, we have been exporting Paper and Paper Products in more than 20 countries in the regions of Africa and Middle East over the past 22 years.

Bally Chohan: 6 Ways to Get in Shape While Watching TV

Here are six exercises:

1. Biceps curls (arms)

While seated, take a dumbbell in each hand or a heavy book in each hand if you don’t have weights. Flex your arms at the elbows and pull in an upward arc toward your shoulders, with the palms of your hands facing the ceiling and your elbows close to your waist. Pause for a moment to contract your biceps at the peak of the exercise. Lower and repeat the movement for 10 or more reps.

2. Hand grippers (forearms and wrists)

These little gadgets are great for strengthening your forearms and wrists, and I use them all the time for that reason. What’s more, grip strength is a good overall indicator of how fit you are. In fact, clinicians have used grip strength to measure levels of fitness and performance in older adults. You simply grasp the handles in one hand and squeeze them together as closely as you can. Keep squeezing until you can’t do another, then switch hands and repeat the exercise.

3. Trunk twists (side abdominals)

Sit with good posture. Bend your elbows and hold them close to the sides of your body. Slowly rotate your trunk to the right as far as you comfortably can, being sure to keep your torso stable. Rotate back to the center and repeat the move to the left. Do this 10 times, with two twists counting as one repetition.

4. Leg lifts (abdominals)

Sit with good posture toward the edge of the couch or chair. Hold on to the sides and extend your legs straight out. Lean back slightly so that your abs feels contracted and engaged. Bend your knees, bringing them in toward your chest. Repeat this move 10 or more times.

#19 – 10 Strange Restaurant Concepts

The last few weeks have been very hectic for me, so it’s great that I’ve finally had the chance to write a new blog post.

As many of you would have seen, I’ve previously done 2 posts showcasing some of the San Pellegrino Best Restaurants in the World.

For this post, I’m sharing 10 more restaurants with you, which have a different kind of uniqueness:

#1 – Modern Toilet Restaurant, Taiwan

Whilst the mere thought of eating a toilet-themed menu off a table made from a bathtub would put many of us off, the Modern Toilet Restaurant in Taiwan is a big hit with tourists & locals alike.

#2 – Disaster Café, Spain

What could be better than enjoying a 3 course Spanish meal in the beautiful seaside town of Lloret De Mar? Enjoying your meal whilst experiencing a 7.8 magnitude earthquake! That’s what diners at the Disaster Café undergo as their meal (& nerves) are tested under the force of the restaurant’s quakes.

#3 – Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Maldives

Created as part of the Hilton Maldives Resort, the Ithaa Restaurant is the first restaurant of its kind. Sitting almost 5m below sea level, the restaurant offers up to 14 diners a 270 degree panoramic experience with views of the clear waters and abundant coral reef around them.

#18 – A Poem for my Dad!

I’ve been really flattered to see such praise for the poems I’ve posted recently. It’s great to see such a positive reaction to some of my musings!

As they seem to be popular with everyone, let me share another of my personal poems. This was written a couple of years back for my dad.

Take a look below and I hope you enjoy!

He took the strength of an earthquake,
The splendour of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a gentle sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The knowledge of the ages,
The power of the eagle’s flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,

 Then he combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew his masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it … Dad

Life Insurance Ratings Explained

Life insurance ratings assess the strength of the life insurance company in question. Before you purchase insurance from a life insurance company or invest in the company’s stock, you should examine its ratings. While each rating company has its own specific rating system, the fundamentals of rating an insurance company are the same.

U.V. B.O. Gear

I was talking to a buddy on the phone the other day about bug-out bags in case of a Zombie Apocalypse. He indicated that he had read somewhere lately that he should mark his map with three routes to his BOL (Bug-Out Location) and asked what I thought of the idea.

I indicated that, at least in my opinion, that it didn’t sound like a sensible OPSEC (Operational Security) idea. In a Zombie Panic situation there are many conditions that could cause your map to fall into the wrong hands. It could be lost or even taken by force, to name a few. In the wrong hands, you’ve just revealed where you are going and that place most likely has your supply of food and other self-reliance items. Other members of your family might even already be there.

My thoughts were that it’s not a bad idea to have alternate routes to your BOL, predetermined in the event of detours. I mean Hell, you never know when and where the Zombies may be heading. But you don’t want to advertise them. I believe in running your routes, before you need to use them and memorize those routes. In executive protection, the advance team and drivers always run various routes such as the hospital, airport, etc., so they are familiar with possible detours and become comfortable with the routes. The same should occur with Bug-Out routes. But in the event a family involved and something did happen to the main leader, a map could come in handy. So, upon further thought on the matter, I felt if you really wanted to mark a map, then you should do it covertly.

What I came up with was the use of a fine-point UV (Ultraviolet) marker  to make your markings, then use an UV light to see the markings. I happened to have used this technique for other purposes over the years so I knew it would work in this situation. I also have a couple of different small UV lights that could easily be carried or concealed in a pack.

UV.PenLights

This photo shows a fine point UV marker, a Streamlight Stylus with UV LED, and a Micron Freedom with UV LED.

BOL.Map_.NoUV_

This photo shows a map of an area where a BOL could be. This map already has three routes marked to a location using a UV marker.

BOL.Map_.WithUV

This photo shows the marked route using the Micron Freedom with UV LED.

As you can see, this is a great way to make markings without other people being able to see them. This can be used for other OPSEC purposes as well. Let’s say you have some information that you want to carry with you, but don’t want it to fall into the wrong hands. This could be phone numbers, lock combinations, or other personal information. You could write that information in an innocuous location on something that you have on you such as a piece of paper in your wallet. What I like to do is write inside a small book, in a location that I won’t forget. You could use odd pages, or always start on page 12, etc. Use a system you’ll remember.

How To Make Your Car Handle a Zombie Apocalypse

Zombie protection vehicles, Britain - 25 Oct 2013

You don’t have to be a trained mechanic to zombify your vehicle, all it takes is a little bit of time, basic tools and materials that you can find just about anywhere to turn a normal production vehicle into a high speed workhorse ready to tackle your driving adventures.

Battery

Your battery needs to be tied down very securely if you plan on operating at high speeds, over rough terrain, or both. A loose battery will arc its terminals on sheet metal, flex and break its connections, or shift from its location and interfere with other moving parts. Batteries can be tied down with ratchet straps, bungees, paracord, etc.

Take care not to bridge the terminals with metal or any other conductive material, even touching the terminals together with a tool tool can let the smoke out of the wires or ECU. Cover the battery or at least the hot terminal with scrap rubber or plastic, even wrapping with tape will help prevent a catastrophe.

 Investing

If you plan on owning a home, sending your kids off to great colleges or just wanting to create wealth for the different chapters in your life (retirement for example) this blog should be read with great attention! This is step one for a new and brighter future.

The best way to build wealth (other than working or having a huge inheritance) is to invest money at every opportunity. If you’re new to the whole idea of investing and making your money work, things aren’t too clear for the rest of the world either, you have arrived at the right place! In this blog every day we will tackle investment basics, strategies and placement of money.

The percentages of Americans who invest in the stock market come from the Gallup polling organization. In the spring of 2012 they conducted a study and the number came back as 53%, lowest since the poll was conducted in June 2002. Not everyone is cut out for investing but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t at least dip your nose in. If you are like every other human being then saving and making money are top priorities. Investing can be scary but with the proper research and resources anyone can make a profit! I will try and keep this guide for investing simple and straight forward. No matter income, wealth or debt, investing can improve financial freedom down the road for the latter years of life.

The very first step to investing is acknowledging that saving money and cutting back on expenses is essential. The mindset that the world’s best money managers have is that nothing happens overnight. No one should rush into investing!! In most cases investing is a 3-5 year process or longer depending on the financial goals that you set. Make sure the money being put away doesn’t interfere with everyday expenses. The penalties of removing money that’s invested early can put any investor back at square one (or even worse further from obtaining their financial goals).

Investing, unless a company goes public (offered shares of ownership) or some catastrophic amount of money is poured into the business, your money will take time to grow. The time it takes for an investment to fully blossom (the amount that you eventually want to obtain) can be a zig zag road, going left, right, up and down. Don’t let this winding road scare you away! This path can be a great indicator of what the future has in store for those investments.

There are many ways to make money grow through investments, government issued bonds, and company issued bonds, ownership stock, real estate and small business. These are just to name a few but from experience; money (and a lot of it) is here for the making and taking! In later posts we will break down each investment so that you are fully aware and know which will be beneficiary or detrimental to your own goals.

Helping sales people balance their home and work lives

Hi team.

If you weren’t able to cold call prospects,how would you expand your sales territory?I hope that this is never the case,but what would you do?Listed below are some ideas and tips that will help.

1,Look at the world in terms of  abundance.Look for the advantages in every situation.See how big and plentiful your opportunities are.In short you need to set your inner game to the right setting.

2,Contact all your existing clients.Do a review of their supply needs.What products are you not supplying them that they could purchase from you?Do an audit with the purchasing manager or owner.You will be surprised at the growth that is available.

3,Ask for referrals from your clients.If you are doing a good job you should be getting them anyway.But if you haven’t been asking for them,then do so.

4,Every company has a list of lapsed clients.This is a potential gold mine if you handle it the right way.Ask your accounts dept for a list of lapsed clients for the last 24 months.They may have left for any number of reasons,but you should have all the contact information,and sales history within easy reach.

5,Apply the above steps to your everyday sales  process anyway.Don’t wait for the potential situation to arise,but rather be proactive.

Well team I hope that helps.

Now go and enjoy your life.

Live a life of passion.

Welcome back team.
You have to enjoy what you do,and be passionate about it.
As I found out this week,life can be short.There is absolutely no point in doing a job,or living a life that is unfulfilling and lacks passion.
Find out what you are good at,study,and make yourself your own private project.
At home,enjoy those closest to you.Make them feel special and appreciated.What we send out we receive back in kind.
At the end of your life,be able to say I’m glad I did,rather than I wish I had.
Now go and enjoy your life.

When a Delhi journo joins New Yorker, it’s news

10 October 2013

J

India’s bankrupt politicians routinely detect a “foreign hand” behind every disaster that befalls the nation. The Indian media, on the other hand, has been somewhat blessed to benefit from foreign hands on the deck.

Caravan the defunct-fortnightly from the Delhi Press group which was reborn as The Caravan of longform journalism three years ago was particularly lucky to have Jonathan Shainin on its ranks early on.

After seeing The Caravan through its infancy, Shainin, a former fact-checker at The New Yorker magazine, returned to his alma mater as news editor of its website this week.

Below is the full text of the email shot off by Caravan‘s executive editor Vinod K. Jose, announcing Shainin’s exit.

***

Dear Team,

This coming week, our dear colleague, Jonathan Shainin is moving back to New York. Jonathan joined by the end of the first year of relaunched Caravan, and is heading home after a very memorable, and extremely productive 3 years with us. The time and attention that he has given to the stories he edited is remarkable, and if anyone ever pays attention to the institutional history of Caravan, Jonathan’s role will be remembered and celebrated with reverence.

In 2009 and 2010, from the period I call the “guerrilla operation phase,” the staff whose strength was in single digits, we have today come a long way with the magazine/brand becoming the outcome of a massive amount of collective editorial energy of 25 people.

The number of editors, and staff writers have gone up, and the family of freelancers and contributing editors have grown as well.

With Jonathan’s impending departure, more associate editors had joined close to a year in advance, and we are right now in the process of hiring more editors to increase the level and quality of attention a piece/writer gets. The more the torch-bearers of the particular Caravan editing and writing philosophy we produce, the more stable the space of longform narrative journalism in India becomes.

In the same vein, I also wanted to celebrate the small, but meaningful flame of good ethical journalism that Caravan was instrumental in doing, which to me worked hand-in-hand with the longform identity we created in the craft space; here again, Jonathan was such an uncompromising editor, and I wish everyone who comes and joins us/after us always build on the hard work/careful walking we have managed all these years, and between us, right now, we shall remind each other how we need to help each other in making the flame retain its virility, and get bigger and bigger if possible in the years to come.

I wish Jonathan a wonderful future ahead, both professionally and personally.

Vinod K. Jose

I spread the word among my friends, and they fell in love too.

As new subscription box companies launched, it got difficult to keep up. That’s what inspired me to create Must Have Boxes. I’ll give you a sneak peak at up-and-coming brands and I’ll post detailed box reviews. You won’t find any fluff here – just straight talk about the products that work best and make me feel beautiful.

Color Me Monthly Review – August 2013

by Must Have Boxes on August 26, 2013

boxbasics

Company: Color Me Monthly

Category: Nails

Cost: USD $7/month, free shipping

About: “Become a CMM member and get GORGEOUS nail polish delivered to your door every month. Each box contains a surprise color that’s always in-season and in-style.”

The Scoop: Each month, you’ll receive a full size bottle of nail polish that features the season’s latest fashion and color trends. You can subscribe to a one month, six month or yearly plan and you have the ability to cancel at any time. Color Me Monthly also offers gift options to make your life easy.

Summer Tryst
“Until days grow short, promise to meet me at sunset, where salt meets the sand”

Wow! This gorgeous plum lavender shade is perfect for summer. Purple is such a hot color right now, and one of my all-time favorites. The Color Me Monthly formula is the ideal consistency for nail polish and it’s super quick drying. This shade would be worn with a daytime or nighttime look and it would pair especially well with a colorful summer maxi dress. I love the card with the featured haiku too. The idea it speaks to is…oh-so romantic. Swoon.

verdict

The August Color Me Monthly nail polish is a total winner. It’s important to me that my nail polish is free of toluene, formaldehyde/formaldehyde resin, and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). This small company is dedicated to producing non-toxic, eco-friendly products, and I’m happy to support that. Other high-end nail polish brands retail for USD $8.00-9.00 per bottle, so the monthly cost of the subscription is very fair. I can’t wait to see what Color Me Monthly delivers next!

Watanut Review – August 2013

by Must Have Boxes on August 23, 2013

boxbasics

Company:Watanut

Category: Health, Snacks

Cost: USD $25/month, free shipping

About: “Watanut is a fast, easy way to discover healthy snacking. Whether you’re in training, trying to eat healthier or just a fan of fresh nuts, dried fruit and mind-blowing mixes, Watanut makes nutritious snacking simple.”

The Scoop: Each month, you’ll receive a box featuring four of Watanut’s healthy delicious custom snack mixes. These real food mixes are fresh and flavorful – a rarity in today’s world of processed snacks. From trail mixes to granola, Watnut makes it easy to snack right on the go. Plus, a portion of the proceeds from every Watanut box is donated to a local Boys & Girls Club. I love a company with a positive mission!

I’m a self-proclaimed healthy snack enthusiast, so I was excited to try my first Watable box. The smartly branded box with the quirky nut design is so much fun! When I opened the package, I was met with four amazing looking snack mixes. And now, for the much-awaited taste test…

thegoodies

Thru-Hike Mix

The 6.0 oz Thru-Hike Mix features cranberries, roasted almonds, and roasted and salted cashews. This balanced combination of salty and sweet is absolutely delicious! The whole nuts provide great texture and the cranberries deliver the perfect fruity bite. If you’re going on a hike or simply searching for the perfect post-workout snack, then be sure to have this nutritious mix handy.

The Happy Nut :) Mix

The 6.0 oz The Happy Nut :) Mix features roasted salted pistachios. I love the pure taste of fresh in-shell pistaschios. Yum! I used a few of these to top a spinach salad tossed with imported balsamic vinegar. The pistachios added a nice savory crunch to the delicate salad. You definitely need to try this.

Wild Bill’s Buffalo Mix

The 6.0 oz Wild Bill’s Buffalo Mix features buffalo peanuts, unsalted peanuts, buttermilk ranch pretzel bits, and sunflower seeds. Don’t let the name of the “buffalo” peanuts fool you. These savory peanuts are enclosed in a sweet, crispy coating. That flavor is perfectly paired with the buttermilk ranch pretzel bits. Warning: this snack is so tasty, you may eat the entire container in one sitting!

A Walk in the Woods

The 6.0 oz  A Walk in the Woods Mix features rolled oats, honey, brazil nuts, cashews, coconut, and cinnamon. Looking for the perfect yogurt topping? This is it! The coconut flakes provide a bit of island flavor which goes perfectly with the cashews. This chewy granola has spice and everything nice. :)

verdict

Watanut totally delivers on its promise of delivering healthy, delicious mixes! The $25 per month cost may seem on the more expensive end, but when it comes to food, you always get what you pay for. I expect high quality ingredients come at a slight premium and I’m more than happy to invest in snacks that are nutritious and pure. Watanut is a convenient subscription service that takes the guesswork out of snacking. I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Sequence Collection Love Knot Metallic Bracelet
Value: USD $40.00

Sequence is a collection of jewelry and accessories inspired by the Latin American culture and designed by Ariela Suster. Each piece of vibrant handcrafted jewelry is produced by local artisans in Tepercoyo, El Salvador. Sequence provides much-needed employment opportunities for at-risk youth and the company is committed to enriching the local community by offering art and other cultural classes. The Love Knot Metallic bracelet blends high fashion with rustic craftsmanship to create a piece that is ultra sleek and modern. I’m in love with the golden metallic color scheme and the knot has a very nautical feel. This bracelet is perfect for stacking and mixing with Sequence’s other bracelet styles too.

Beyond Borders Haitian Metal Art Small Bird Wall Art 
Value: USD $9.95

Metal sculpture was born in the Haitian village of Croix-des-Bouquets where chisels, dies, and a large hammer are used to cut and mold the designs from oil drums. This gorgeous 6″ x 5″ metal wall art sculpture is handcrafted by Haitian artist Cineus Louime. Louime’s art focuses on his love of nature, in particular birds and trees. He was introduced to metal sculpture at an early age and eventually opened his own shop where he now perfects his creations. I love the intricate detail, from the bird’s feathery wings to the sharp point of its beak. This wall art would look beautiful hung in an outdoor garden or somewhere else close to nature. There’s something special about the care that has been put into making this piece.

verdict

Total box value: USD $49.95

  • Sequence Collection Love Knot Metallic Bracelet – USD $40.00
  • Beyond Borders Haitian Metal Art Small Bird Wall Art – USD $9.95

The August Fair Treasure Box is fabulous! I’m totally smitten with both pieces which are hand crafted and sourced from different parts of the world. The Sequence Collection Love Knot Metallic Bracelet is the perfect summer accessory and the Beyond Borders Haitian Metal Art Small Bird Wall Art brings life to any space where it’s displayed. Plus, the purchase of these one-of-a-kind products helps small businesses that really need our support. The value of the items is more than the cost of the box, which is always a plus too. :)

Aren’t these handmade products incredible? Interested in subscribing to Fair Treasure? Let me know!

The Chop-Shop Draft |Catching up with Writer’s Conquest by Thomas A Fowler

Swedish Fish – A Blog for My Family

Word Count Wednesday:

As I’m on the road for September and the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writer’s Gold Conference, I’ve been working on revising the manuscript with the finishing touches. What has amazed me in these first few weeks is how much this draft is getting chopped.

Coming in at over 101,500 words, I knew the manuscript was coming in heavy on word-count. So this approach has been asking if the words were absolutely necessary to the plot, characters, and overall narrative structure. What’s astonishing is how much you implement that isn’t required for the story. You spend so many hours developing your world, and feel like so much is needed. But when you ask “Is this absolutely needed?” it’s insane how many times you can say no.

photo 1

I currently have 9094 words completed on this second to last draft. After this, it’ll be the “Where’s that one sentence, or spelling, error?” draft. I’m pretty adamant to keep this draft under 100,000 words and am pretty sure it’s going to happ

en. After all, my manuscript, in the Word document, is at 45 pages. On the previous draft, this same chapter ended at 61 pages. So this shortly into the draft, I’ve already shaved quite a few pages.

This will be really great to see a tightly woven manuscript that embraces the claustrophobic atmosphere of the Thales faster, and leaves them in peril for the majority of the narrative, an amazing suggestion from Jessica Engman, my editorial consultant.

How are you doing on your manuscript? I’m tracking my word count through the app, wait for it, called “Word Count.” Share your progress in the comments section, or tweet me @ThomasAFowler.

Limited Edition Tees Worth Buying | The Artificial Selection Project.

Whenever I get compliments on a t shirt, it’s usually one I bought through Teefury.com. It’s called “fury” because the t shirts are sold, blitzkrieg style, for only 24 hours. The site specialize in fan art, mashups (called mash potatoes), and original artwork. They hold open submissions for designs in which the artists, if selected, get a chunk of the profit and the buyer gets an awesome limited edition tee.

For a little extra mayhem, “twofury” takes over. Two shirts rage in battle for 24 hours. The design with the most sales is crowned the epic champion of fan art tees. Today’s twofury is Pacific Rim inspired, tomorrow’s…who knows.

Check Teefury.com every night at 9 pm for new t shirt designs. You just might find your perfect tee.
