1) Carnatic music should reach masses: CHENNAI, INDIA, December 20, 2001: Carnatic music in its pristine form should reach the masses, Mr. M. Karpagavinayagam, judge, Madras High Court told The Hindu newspaper. Lighting the traditional lamp to mark the inaugural of the Rasika Ranjani Sabha's annual music festival 2001- 2002, he said flawless music gained prominence only when it reached the common man. He called upon music organizations to motivate and draw the younger generation into their fold by propagating the joy of carnatic music. Mr. A. R. Santhanakrishnan, sabha president, said efforts were on to revive the sabha's sastriya sangeetha school of music. The auditorium renovation would be carried out with the assistance of sponsors, rasikas, and well wishers.

2) BizReport : Brits Do Their E-Shopping & E-Banking At Work: Internet usage figures published this morning show that the average Brit seems to do a lot more than simply work at their place of employment. Many, the NetValue analysis says, seem do a sizeable amount of online shopping and banking during their working hours. The October figures from the Internet research firm, which have just been expanded to cover work and university Internet access, show that 7.8 million Brits - 25% of the workforce - now access the Net from their place of employment. The problem, the research firm says, is that many also access the Net during their normal working hours - i.e., when they should be working.

7) The Wellsprings of Horror in the Cradle: Alice Miller, a 1986 recipient of the Janusz Korczak Literary Award by the Anti-Defamation League, has sought to find answers to the tragedy of terrorism and the people who perpetrate it. She believes, "On the basis of the research I have done into the childhood histories of the most ruthless dictators, like Hitler, Stalin, Mao or Ceaucescu, terrorism in general and the recent horrifying attacks on the United States are a macabre but precise demonstration of what happens to millions and millions of children the world over in the name of good parenting." She adds that "nobody comes to the world with the wish to destroy. Every newborn, independently from the culture, religion or ethnic origins needs to love, be loved, protected, and respected. This is his biological design. If he is maltreated by the cruel upbringing he will develop the very strong wish to take revenge. He will be driven to destroy others or himself but only by his history and never by inborn genes. The suppression and subsequent denial of early rage that often ends up in hatred with an endless number of ideologies." Miller resides in Switzerland and hosts a website www.alice-miller.com where her readers can share their experiences with others.

8) hibakusha: On September 11, I became a modern version of a hibakusha. That’s what Japanese people who lived through the Hiroshima atomic bombings in World War II called themselves. This translates to "explosion- affected persons." They were careful not to refer to themselves as "survivors" because that word’s emphasis on being alive could slight the sacred dead.

9) Line56.com: SAP Denies FT Report on .Net : SAP denied a report in today's edition of The Financial Times that CEO Hasso Plattner will announce that his company will choose Sun's J2EE architecture over rival Microsoft's .Net platform. "The Financial Times coverage was just wrong," says Bill Wohl, North American spokesman at SAP. "For the last eight months, Mr. Plattner has talked about SAP's strategy of openness. And next Tuesday, we'll announce our next generation technology architecture... that will support .Net, J2EE and much more."

10) Magician Loses Its Sparkling Touch: SAP, Europe's largest software maker, had been doing so well this year that it was starting to look more like the work of black magic than skilful management. That, at least, was the impression until recently when it became the last sizeable player in its devastated sector to issue a profit warning. No longer under the spell, analysts are now wondering whether the warning was a blip or the prelude to more serious problems for the German group. At the very least, they say, the episode has pointed to serious weaknesses that must be addressed quickly. One of them lies in SAP's handling of its last results announcement, which not only irritated investors but also fanned fears the group may have lost "visibility" on developments in its market...As Mr Ashton puts it: "You can have the biggest firework in the world, it is no good if you do not have the audience."

11) SAP Chooses Sun Micro Platform Over Microsoft : SAP, Europe's biggest software group, has decided not to use Microsoft's .Net software platform and is instead backing a competing offering from Sun Microsystems. Hasso Plattner, SAP chief executive, will announce next week that the German group is to adopt Sun's J2EE architecture, a development platform for enterprise software based on the Java programming language, to run SAP software. SAP's move is likely to be a blow to Microsoft, as the German group has one of the largest customer bases of any business software developer.

13) MOFGA - the MOF&G:2001 - Dr. Vandana Shiva: When Dr. Vandana Shiva attended the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association and the Common Ground Country Fair in September, she brought with her a stirring message. Honored as an international leader in her promotion of organic farming, she flew from her home in Doon Valley, India, on a flight after the terrorist attacks. With courage and fortitude, she has advocated organic methods of farming as the core and essence of a peaceful society. When plants are able to grow by natural means in rich soil untouched by the violence of chemicals, the result is peaceful farmers and families. Dr. Vandana herself has seen the results of chemically ravaged land farmed by huge corporations in the Punjab. Local farmers, unable to make a living for their families, have lost their dignity and respect. After praising the MOFGA for their work in endorsing organic farming, Dr. Vandana drew parallels in this area with her own organic farm in the foothills of the Himalayas

45) Managing the Digital Enterprise | Business Models: Business models are perhaps the most discussed and least understood aspect of the web. There is so much talk about how the web changes traditional business models. But there is little clear-cut evidence of exactly what this means.

In the most basic sense, a business model is the method of doing business by which a company can sustain itself -- that is, generate revenue. The business model spells-out how a company makes money by specifying where it is positioned in the value chain.

50) how to be rich :-):

If you cannot see another world you are blind.
If you do not know how to say a gentle word, 
when it is necessary, you are dumb.
If you are tormented by too many desires you are poor.
If you have a contented heart you are rich.
