KFC Inspiration: Whatsapp fwd 

At age 5 his Father died.
At age 16 he quit school.
At age 17 he had already lost four jobs.
At age 18 he got married.
Between ages 18 and 22, he was a railroad conductor and failed.
He joined the army and washed out there.
He applied for law school he was rejected.
He became an insurance sales man and failed again.
At age 19 he became a father.
At age 20 his wife left him and took their baby daughter.
He became a cook and dishwasher in a small cafe.
He failed in an attempt to kidnap his own daughter, and eventually he convinced his wife to return home.
At age 65 he retired. 
On the 1st day of retirement he received a cheque from the Government for $105. 
He felt that the Government was saying that he couldn’t provide for himself.
He decided to commit suicide, it wasn’t worth living anymore; he had failed so much.
He sat under a tree writing his will, but instead, he wrote what he would have accomplished with his life. He realised there was much more that he hadn’t done. There was one thing he could do better than anyone he knew. And that was how to cook.
So he borrowed $87 against his cheque and bought and fried up some chicken using his recipe, and went door to door to sell them to his neighbours in Kentucky.
Remember at age 65 he was ready to commit suicide.
But at age 88 Colonel Sanders, founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) Empire was a billionaire.
Moral of the story: Attitude. It’s never too late to start all over. 
You have what it takes to be successful. Go for it and make a difference. Forwarded as recd

#SewaInternational appeals for support to #NepalRelief

Over 8 million affected by Nepals worst earthquake and 2.7 million of them are children in need of vital aid, Sewa International appeals for support to our brethren in one of the most poorest countries of the world.

At least 940,000 children living in areas severely affected by yesterday’s earthquake in Nepal are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance.

The death toll from the earthquake could reach 10,000, Nepal’s prime minister said Tuesday.

More than 1.4 million people affected by Saturday’s devastating earthquake in Nepal are in need of food assistance

Nepal needs our shoulder, our compassionate action not just compassion, please join hands as global  citizens to make Nepal stand with pride. Be a part of rehabilitation and relief for the Nepalese….

Rehabilitation agencies have estimated that rebuilding the Earthquake hit areas of Nepal will take $5 billion at a minimum. Sewa International has set a target of raising a minimum of $1 million for this cause. Thus far, we have collected $100,000 through online and checks. We have pledges of an additional $250,000.

4 cloud predictions for 2015


So yes, 2014 was a big year for cloud. Now it’s time for some predictions for the year ahead. Based on gut instinct, here are my picks.

1: Cloud consolidation will continue

There are those who say that end-user thirst for cloud will mean enough business for everyone. I disagree — this is a scale game for the most part and with [company]Amazon[/company], [company]Google[/company] and [company]Microsoft[/company] sucking the air out of the room on public cloud, there will be room for some second-tier players but not for every cloud vendor on the horizon.

Last year’s consolidation  — [company]Cisco[/company] buying MetaCloud, [company]Hewlett-Packard[/company] buying Eucalyptus, [company]EMC[/company] buying CloudScaling — was prelude to more M&A to come. Can CloudSigma, Digital Ocean, GoGrid, Joyent, Mirantis, ProfitBricks and a dozen other cloud vendors all flourish and prosper as standalone companies? Don’t bet on it, but some of them might be nifty pickups for bigger companies that…

Mook Review: Gone Girl


Gone Girl – Novel by Gillian Flynn

via Amazon.com via Amazon.com

There are some books that seem to blow up all at once.  It’s as if suddenly EVERYONE is reading it, EVERYONE is talking about it, and EVERYONE is waiting movie adaptation.  These books are thrilling and successful, but are hardly ever very good (think The Da Vinci Code, 50 Shades of Grey), and typically have a great plot with surface level characters.  Frankly, these trendy books just don’t have much depth.

Gone Girl, in many ways, falls into the category of the book-of-the-moment.  Flynn’s third novel was wildly successful, with readers spanning from teenagers to parents to everyone in-between.  It was one of those novels everyone stayed up until 4am reading, just trying to get through one more chapter, and couldn’t wait to gush about to their peers.  But Flynn’s characters were complex.  As a reader, I developed emotions towards…
