many also access the Net during their normal working hours - i.e.,
when they should be working.

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
United States are a macabre but precise demonstration of what happens
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
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
others or himself but only by his history and never by inborn genes.

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

likely to be a blow to Microsoft, as the German group has one of the
largest customer bases of any business software developer.

revenue. The business model spells-out how a company makes money by
specifying where it is positioned in the value chain.

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.
