HapSad – Combination of happiness and sadness (Half sad)

Workplace – the environment where you work is vital to the well being of the employees.

Environment is not only about how elegant the building, how fancy the lift, or how tech the facilities. 

Environment is more than that, it is the people surrounding you, your co-workers, your manager, your colleagues or become friends in the office or very seldom colleagues whom become friends whether in or outside office.

The simple gesture of hi and hello in the morning while waiting for the coffee be brewed by the machine. Then, while taking the first sip, conversation strikes. Takes a minute, then turn to half an hour, until someone crack the joke of going back to the factory – going back to our desk…

Funny how days passed giving someone a nickname, then next month a different nick depending on the stories you told them like if you share something about Ice, the next thing you know you been known or calling you the Iceman!

Being comfortable and being used to these on daily basis, it is so hard to sink in that nothing is permanent in this world, and change is the only constant thing.

It’s a mixed emotion when someone’s close to you have to move, or decided to transfer to other department. It is a combination of sadness and happiness at the same time. Happy for them for their personal growth, but at the same time sad as things will not be the same as before. I called and I coined it as, HapSad (Half Sad)…

Then, again, it is hard to sink in that tomorrow you’ll arrive in the office with new unfamiliar faces. 

All the best mate!

Florida airport shooting – Esteban Santiago

The 7th of January 2017, an Army veteran who complained that the government was controlling his mind drew a gun from his checked luggage on arrival at the Fort Lauderdale airport and opened fire in the baggage claim area Friday, killing five people and wounding eight, authorities said.

What we know about the Florida airport shooting:

  • Esteban Santiago was born in New Jersey and moved to Puerto Rico when he was 2. He was sent to Iraq in 2010 and spent a year there with the 130th Engineer Battalion, according to Puerto Rico National Guard spokesman Maj. Paul Dahlen. He later joined the Alaska National Guard.

  • Santiago flew into Florida on a flight from Alaska via Minnesota on a Delta flight, officials said. He had declared his handgun in a firearms carrying case, law enforcement sources told CNN.

  • Santiago had purchased two handguns — a 9 mm Glock and a Glock .40-caliber — in the past, according to a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation. It is unknown whether either of these pistols were used in Friday’s attack.

  • Santiago arrived in Fort Lauderdale after taking off from Anchorage aboard a Delta flight Thursday night, checking only one piece of luggage — his gun

  • At Fort Lauderdale, “after he claimed his bag, he went into the bathroom and loaded the gun and started shooting
  • The attack also exposed another weak point in airport security: While travellers have to take off their shoes, put their carry-on luggage through X-ray machines and pass through metal detectors to reach the gates, many other sections of airports, such as ticket counters and baggage claim areas, are more lightly secured and more vulnerable to attack.
  • Santiago said nothing as he “went up and down the carousels of the baggage claim, shooting through luggage to get at people that were hiding,” according to Lea . The killer went through about three magazines before running out of ammunition, witness said.

  • “He threw the gun down and laid spread-eagle on the ground until the officer came up to him,”

  • The gunman was arrested unharmed, with no shots fired by law enforcement officers, and was being questioned by the FBI, Sheriff Scott Israel said.

Washington Post Express Had An Epic Fail

On Thursday the 6th of January 2017, the Washington Post Express decided to devote its entire front cover to a story about a women’s rights march taking place the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration as US president.

dc_express-optimal

Yet at first glance, it’s possible to miss the mistake entirely. On the cover all the text is correct, there are no spelling mistakes and the grammar is spot on. But the stuff up is much bigger than that. Can you spot what is it?

It is not about grammar or typo error, but they have used the wrong symbol to represent female, they have used the male symbol instead.

Express Executive Editor Dan Caccavaro and Creative Director Jon Benedict did not immediately return phone calls, but an hour and a half after tweeting the cover, the publication said, “We made a mistake on our cover this morning and we’re very embarrassed. We errnoeously used a male symbol instead of a female symbol.” (It doesn’t seem like a good morning at the Express.)

They then showed how the front page image was supposed to look with the female symbol taking pride of place.

I guess it is not just articles that need proofreading but even the works from a graphic designer. Probably it is about time to add this skill.

Money changers in India refuse in accepting Australian $100 bills

Australian travelling to India experience difficulty in exchanging their $100 Australian bill to Indian Rupee as money changers refuse to accept it as a legal tender.

On December 14, 2016, a local news in Australia reported that the government, looks set to follow in the footsteps of Venezuela and India by abolishing the country’s highest-denomination banknote in a bid to crack down on the “black economy”.

The Australian Revenue and Financial Services flagged a review of the $100 note and cash payments over certain limits as the government looks to recoup billions in unpaid tax.

However, the plan to scrap the Australian 100 dollar is misleading and should be accepted as cash.

“The Australian Government is aware that some Australians have had issues in changing $100 notes for Indian Rupees,” a spokesperson for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade told news.com.au following this link dated 5th of January 2017.

“Following consultation with the High Commission in New Delhi, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade travel advice for India was reissued on 5 January 2017.

“The Australian Government has no plans to withdraw the $100 note from circulation and it remains legal tender in Australia.

“The High Commission in New Delhi is working to inform the Indian community of the ongoing legality of the Australian $100 note.”

Letting Go… Moving On…

Hello Folks! Sorry for the long awaited come back of not posting from IamComplete blog.

Happy New Year to everyone. Happy 2017 to everyone following my blog.

Well, the title seems not so good introduction for the 2017, but probably explains how I experienced today. Yesterday, 4th of January was the day when I had my very first extraction of my molar tooth (bottom right side). The picture explains more than I do, and for textual information I find this wisdom teeth article depicts my experience.

My second dentist mentioned that it could have been saved if I been pro-active in removing the wisdom tooth which seated in a 150 degree angle to my extracted molar tooth. Tooth decay was the caused why I was on pain during the holiday season.

You may be wondering why I said “second dentist”?

Because I had a second opinion, first dentist said the tooth can be saved by filling it or it some countries they say it as “pasta”. Basically, hearing what I heard makes me happy, I never wanted my tooth to be extracted. I want to keep it for life as much as I can. Things, happened and due to not listening to dentist to remove wisdom tooth.

It felt not right, something still bothers me, so I asked the opinion of a second dentist. He explained it very clearly and precisely to the symptom that I am having. He asked, if it keeps me awake or having hard time sleeping, most of the patients will experience problem sleeping especially at night as the pain usually strikes.

Scientifically, before visiting the dentist, I did an OPG its like having an X-ray but this procedure is directly for getting an image of your teeth structure.

From the OPG film, I can see big spot, I thought it was just a spot that you can clean, but second dentist explain that its a tooth decay, its a whole, so if we fill it in, there is no guarantee that you will not come back. In summary, it will be a waste of money, time and of course you’ll be in pain.

This dentist does not pressure me to decide, he even over me time to think and decide. He is very good dentist. To cut the story short, I stayed on his clinic while two patients finishes then finally decided to have it extracted. Knowing me, I did lot of calls and talk to people around me to check what they did, and yes, I did talk to people around me in the clinic, funny how it is, but if you really want to be sure with your decision, I think you will do lot of research, asking, and listening.

So, its a bye bye molar tooth. It is time to move on and face the New Year with a smile.. And if somebody ask, if I kept the extracted tooth…. hmmm..I guess you can let me know your thoughts 🙂 So its another survey, put your comments.

Happy reading everyone.

Southern Chelyabinsk Russia Meteorites

A meteor streaked through the skies above Russia’s southern Chelyabinsk region Friday morning, before exploding with a flash and boom that shattered glass in buildings and left hundreds of people hurt.

The explosion was centered about 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Satka city, in the Chelyabinsk region, the state-run Itar-Tass news agency reported. About 80 million trees were felled, radiating out from the center of the blast, but no crater was left.

The sounds of car alarms and breaking windows could be heard in the area, the witness said, and mobile phones were working intermittently. “Preliminary indications are that it was a meteorite rain,” an emergency official told RIA-Novosti. “We have information about a blast at 10,000-metre altitude. It is being verified.”

Chelyabinsk city authorities urged people to stay indoors unless they needed to pick up their children from schools and nurseries. They said a blast had been heard at an altitude of 10,000 metres, apparently signalling it occurred when the meteorite entered Earth’s atmosphere.

In 1908 a meteorite is thought to have devastated an area of more than 700 sq miles in Siberia in what became known as the Tunguska event.
