#1 The ‘I’m Always Right’ Jerk is arrogant, aggressive, egoistic and has a general its-my-way-or-the-highway, attitude
#2 The Sexist Jerk is aggressive, discriminatory and harasses people
#3 The Complain Jerk is pessimistic, tries to find faults in everything and always blames something or somebody else
#4 The Tattle Tale Jerk is generally untrustworthy, flaky, overly friendly and sneaky
#5 The Two Faced Jerk is nice and positive to you but complains about you to someone else, is fake a hypocrite, discredits others and often jealous
#6 The Political Jerk only focuses on their own personal agenda, is manipulative, conniving and understands the organizational dynamic and power plays
#7 The Kiss A** Jerk praises you ‘into the grave’ is driving personal agenda and more often than not doubtful about their own competence
incompetent
#8 The Self Centered Jerk is defensive, egoistic with little or no regards for others, displays no empathy and is generally selfish
#9 The Look-Busy-Do-Nothing Jerk is a typical loafer, pretends to be all engrossed but never delivering anything, waste times and resources and doesn’t do anything
#10 The Fanatic Jerk is very judgmental, constantly shares and sometimes even forces his / her ‘out-of-the-center’ ideas on others.
#11 The Perfectionist Jerk can’t get his work done in time, is absorbed by details and is nitpicking your work, never satisfied and imposes his need for perfection on others
#12 The Credit Stealing Jerk always claims paternity for the results/ideas, brags, lies, take advantage of others and is needy for recognition
#13 The Feels Sorry For Himself Jerk is self deprecating, insecure and lacks confidence

#16 (The Jerk for No Reason) – Some jerks will have it out for you, and verbally attack you, and belittle you, and just be mean to you for absolutely no good reason. You’ve never done anything to these jerks (that you know of). You’ve always tried to steer clear of them, and you’ll always be baffled as to why they are so mean to you and not as much so to others.

These are the jerks that tend to have their own little posses; their goons, if you will. They are unending in their meanness to you, and they don’t try to hide it.

You’ll spend a lot of energy trying to figure out these kinds of jerks, but it won’t matter. Anything you try and do will just make it worse. They don’t like you. One day, for whatever reason, you found yourself in their crosshairs, and there’s not much you can do about it once you’re there.

#17 (The Goon) – For most Jerk #1s, there’s a Jerk #2. These jerks are followers, and they’ll be jerks to anyone they’re “told” to be jerks to.

#18 (The Jerk People Defend) – I also call this the Great White Shark jerk. Just like a great white shark, they’re “misunderstood.” They go around taking giant chomps out of people’s arms, and legs, and surfboards, and they don’t understand why people are so upset about it. Just as a shark was born a shark, they were born jerks. They’ve always been jerks. They’ll always be jerks. And the biggest challenge is that they just think that’s how life is.

#19 (The Internet Jerk) – The Internet is full of jerks. Meaning that, they’re never far away. In real life, you can maneuver most of your life around the jerks. But on the Internet, it’s not so easy to always do that.

#20 (The Jerk You’re Stuck With) – Sometimes, for whatever reason, most of us get stuck with a jerk in our lives. Sometimes it’s because it’s a relative. Sometimes it’s someone at work. Sometimes it’s a co-parent. Sometimes it’s a neighbor. And they make you want to kick them (or yourself) in the face. Constantly.

#21 The Hang-Arounder – When confronting the coworker who chronically lingers to chat when you are trying to make a deadline — a subtle jerk, but a jerk nonetheless — try standing up when they enter your office or cube. “The unspoken message of your body language will clearly tell him or her to keep it brief and head for the door,” says Ken Lloyd, author of Jerks at Work: How to Deal With People Problems and Problem People.

#22 The Idea Stealer – There is a strong possibility that this jerk can’t distinguish between a good idea and a bad one. “Somewhere along the way, slip in a really bad idea and let the jerk steal that,” Lloyd says. However, beware that this might only encourage the jerk to become worse.

#23 The Meeting Monopolizer – Get creative. “Try eliminating the chairs and making it a stand-up meeting,” Lloyd suggests. The monopolizer will likely get thrown off and won’t have time to settle into the usual routine of unproductive dominance.

#24 The Loud Phone-Talker – “Obviously the first step is to pull them aside quietly and ask them to lower their voice when using the phone,” says Julie Jansen, a career coach, consultant and trainer. “If this doesn’t stop them, you could dish out the same treatment and stand near their cube on your cellphone and talk loudly. Or you can hold up a sign that says, ‘Please turn volume down.'”

#26 The Tattle Tale Jerk – This type of jerk is generally untrustworthy, flaky, overly friendly and sneaky.

#27 The Two-Faced Jerk – This type of jerk is nice and positive to you but complains about you to someone else, is fake a hypocrite, discredits others and often jealous.

#28 The Rumor Spreading Office Jerk

#29 The Manipulator – This person ingratiates himself or herself to you then proceeds to use you for their own advantage. They’ll take credit for your work. Their compliments drip with insincerity. They get what they can out of you, then simply dump you.

#30 The Egocentric Jerk: This jerk is selfish, lacks self awareness and does whatever is necessary to advance himself in the workplace. He is easily offended, but lacks empathy for others.

#31 The Scapegoat Jerk: This person always blames someone else for his shortcomings and mistakes.

#32 The Fawning Jerk: This office jerk is also known as a kiss-up. He manipulates others with false flattery, but his compliments are rarely genuine.

#33  The Overexerting Jerk: Avoid this person on group projects. When all the work has been handed out, the overexerting jerk will purposely do tasks not assigned to him to make others in the group look like they’re slacking.

#34 The Thieving Jerk: This office jerk likes to be recognized for the success of others. Whether it’s an idea or a project, the thieving jerk will find some way to get credit for it, even if he had nothing to do with it.

#35 The Lazy Jerk: He always appears busy in the presence of superiors, meanwhile relying on the work of others. When management isn’t watching, this person sits around wasting time and resources.

#36 The Pity Party Jerk: This person lacks confidence in his abilities, but instead of working to improve them, he would rather spin his tale of woe.

#37  The Misogynist Jerk: Perhaps the rudest co-worker you may encounter, the misogynist office jerk is constantly saying and doing sexist things, often to the point of harassment.

#38 The Hypocritical Jerk: While outwardly nice and sincere, this jerk talks about others behind their backs, creating tension in the workplace.

#39  The Whistle-blower Jerk: This person would rather complain about you to management than first trying to work things out with you.

#40 The Arrogant Jerk: Rarely finding fault with himself, this jerk never owns up to any mistakes or shortcomings.

#41 The Overbearing Jerk: This person isn’t open to anyone’s ideas or opinions. He likes to scrutinize the work of others and explain how his is better.

#42 The Blame Game Jerk: The poor attitude of this jerk helps him find the negative in every situation and an excuse for anything that goes wrong.

#43 The Political Jerk: This office jerk has an agenda. Manipulative and aggressive, he will do whatever it takes to get what he wants.

#44 The Nit-picky Jerk: This person often misses deadlines because everything has to be perfect. His is also critical of the work of others.

Toota Toota Ek Parinda Aise Toota

Ke Phir Jud Na Paaya

Loota Loota Kisne Usko Aise Loota

Ke Phir Ud Na Paaya

A bird broke in such a way

That it could never be mended

Who robbed it such that

It couldn’t fly ever again?

Toota Toota Ek Parinda Aise Toota

Ke Phir Jud Na Paaya

Loota Loota Kisne Usko Aise Loota

Ke Phir Ud Na Paaya

 

Girta Hua Woh Asma Se

Aakar Gira Zameen Par

Khwabon Mein Phir Bhi Badal Hi The

Woh Kehta Raha Magar

When it fell from the sky

On the earth,

It still had clouds in it’s dreams

And it kept on saying

Ke Allah Ke Bande Hans De Allah Ke Bande

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Jo Bhi Ho Kal Phir Aayega

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Allah Ke Bande

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Jo Bhi Ho Kal Phir Aayega

Laugh,child of the Lord

No matter what happens, there shall be a tomorrow

Kho Ke Aapne Par Hi To Usne Tha Udna Sikha

Kho Ke Aapne Par Hi To

Kho Ke Aapne Par Hi To Usne Tha Udna Sikha

Gham Ko Aapne Saath Mein Lele Dard Bhi Tere Kaam Aayega

It actually learned to fly when it lost it’s wings

Take grief with you, even pain will turn out to be useful

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Allah Ke Bande

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Jo Bhi Ho Kal Phir Aayega

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Allah Ke Bande

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Jo Bhi Ho Kal Phir Aayega

 

Tukde Tuke Ho Gaya Tha Har Sapna Jab Woh Toota

Tukde Tuke Ho Gaya Tha

Tukde Tuke Ho Gaya Tha Har Sapna Jab Woh Toota

Bhikre Tukdon Mein Allah Ki Marzi Ka Manzar Paayega

The bird’s every dream was shattered when it broke,

You shall find the Lord’s will in the broken pieces of the dreams

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Allah Ke Bande

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Jo Bhi Ho Kal Phir Aayega

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Allah Ke Bande

Allah Ke Bande Hans De Jo Bhi Ho Kal Phir Aayega

Toota Toota Ek Parinda Aise Toota

Ke Phir Jud Na Paaya

Loota Loota Kisne Usko Aise Loota

Ke Phir Ud Na Paaya

In Astrology, the trines are 1, 5, 9. From my experience i had learn that if a persons 1, 5, 9 lords are good, they will do well in life, and need not go around to astrologers for readings, more or less they will be self sustained.

Now extending the thought  Below is a table that i created, Trines for each of the lord. That is if for 1st Lord, 5th and 9th are trines then For 2nd and 10th.

1 5 9
2 6 10
3 7 11
4 8 12
5 9 1
6 10 2
7 11 3
8 12 4
9 1 5
10 2 6
11 3 7
12 4 8

Quite interesting justification i could discover why 4th lord times play negative especially in transits is the kind of the houses it is associated with (12th and 8th)

Ok, As and when i was writing this article, i thought let me then do the dushatasthana table as. that is 6, 8, 12.

1 6 8 12
2 7 9 1
3 8 10 2
4 9 11 3
5 10 12 4
6 11 1 5
7 12 2 6
8 1 3 7
9 2 4 8
10 3 5 9
11 4 6 10
12 5 7 11

My hunch is that though all these are giving lot of relationships, but im lot at this moment on this topic.

I hope come back to see how these relations manifest in a persons life.

 

 

I have a different thoughts, To make a curry we need lot of spices, as long as the great spices meet in the right order and proportions, we have a great curry to talk about. Yes at times the chilly not just plays the spice but also colors the dish…hence behind a great curry there are many spices and great recipe. Behind a great work, is a great team and vision.

Some interesting articles that i would love to share around this topic

Katapayadi system

Here you will get an primer on Alphabets (Vowels and Consonants)  to a equivalent number and how hidden dates, patterns are encoded in slokas.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katapayadi_sankhya

Example of an interesting article Car number of 7242, was encoded as Ravi-Ratham: http://www.avalokanam.com/2013/08/katapayadi.html

The same author was kind enough to share another interesting article on how Magic squares and Katapayadi System intersect with the following sloka:

नाकनाथ नदीनीरे
मानाङ्गिनि घनस्तनि
इष्टार्धे एकशून्ये
गजपादक्रमात् लिखेत्
 
the article also enriches us on how we can create any magic square of sum result of any number.
 
Now since we entered into the territory of Magic squares, i found this article motivated to create my own magic square.
 
If you liked the video, and want to create your own magic number then, feel free to download the spread sheet and create yours as well.
 
So the numbers when written in this format, then you end up getting a magic square for a 4×4 matrix.
A B C D
D C B A
B A D C
C D A B
Hence When a persons date of birth is 27 May 1982: then it should be written as follows: A(DD): 27 B(MM):05 C(YY1):19 D(YY2):82
Then the total sum of any row, column, diagonal will have the same number (For the above example: Sum = 133).
 
27 5 19 82
82 19 5 27
5 27 82 19
19 82 27 5

I think next good article which is very illustrated on how to create your own Magic square for a 3×3 can be found here: http://www.wikihow.com/Solve-a-Magic-Square
 
I will either update this post, or continue to post my findings in further posts.
Enjoy.
 
 

When you read a Spiritual or Mythological text, your goal is to understand the contributions the authors are making. This is not an easy task. It may require going over the text several times. Expect to spend several hours to read the text. Though the below guidelines refers to “Reading” but its can be more relevant word is “consume”.

Here are some initial guidelines for how to read the text:

Read critically

Reading a Spiritual or Mythological text must be a critical process. You should not assume that the authors are always correct. Instead, be suspicious.

Critical reading involves asking appropriate questions. If the authors attempt to solve a problem, are they solving the right problem? Are there simple solutions the authors do not seem to have considered? What are the limitations of the solution (including limitations the authors might not have noticed or clearly admitted)?

Are the assumptions the authors make reasonable? Is the logic of the text clear and justifiable, given the assumptions, or is there a flaw in the reasoning?

If the authors present data, did they gather the right data to substantiate their argument, and did they appear to gather it in the correct manner? Did they interpret the data in a reasonable manner? Would other data be more compelling?

Read creatively

Reading the text critically is easy, in that it is always easier to tear something down than to build it up. Reading creatively involves harder, more positive thinking.

What are the good ideas in this text? Do these ideas have other applications or extensions that the authors might not have thought of? Can they be generalized further? Are there possible improvements that might make important practical differences? If you were going to start doing research from this text, what would be the next thing you would do?

Make notes as you read the text

Many people cover the margins of their copies of papers with notes. Use whatever style you prefer. If you have questions or criticisms, write them down so you do not forget them. Underline key points the authors make. Mark the data that is most important or that appears questionable. Such efforts help the first time you read the text and pay big dividends when you have to re-read the text after several months.

After the first read-through, try to summarize the text in one or two sentences.

Almost all good Spiritual or Mythological texts try to provide an answer a specific question. (Sometimes the question is a natural one that people specifically set out to answer; sometimes a good idea just ends up answering a worthwhile question.) If you can succinctly describe the text, you have probably recognized the question the authors started with and the answer they provide. Once you have focused on the main idea, you can go back and try to outline the text to gain insight into more specific details. Indeed, if summarizing the text in one or two sentences is easy, go back and try to deepen your outline by summarizing the three or four most important subpoints of the main idea.

If possible, compare the text to other works.

Summarizing the text is one way to try to determine the contribution of the text. But to really gauge the merit, you must compare the text to other works in the area. Are the ideas really novel, or have they appeared before? (Of course we do not expect you to be experts and know the areas ahead of time in this class!)

It is worth mentioning that contributions can take on many forms. Some papers offer new ideas; others implement ideas, and show how they work; others bring previous ideas together and unite them under a novel framework. Knowing other work in the area can help you to determine which sort of contribution the text is actually making.

One Pager

Your one page review should include the following:

  1. A one or two sentence summary of the text.
  2. A deeper, more extensive outline of the main points of the text, including for example assumptions made, arguments presented, data analyzed, and conclusions drawn.
  3. Any limitations or extensions you see for the ideas in the text.
  4. Your opinion of the text; primarily, the quality of the ideas and its potential impact.

RIPOFF:bit.ly/1tUQeAx

I thank my Sir Sri K . B. Gopalakrishnan, who had always inspired or shared or influenced me to have a perspective identity or above such thinking tools.

I wish mythology or spirituality also is started first with such education on how to synthesize information. I believe that “Knowledge management is one of an Art”.
