15 Years of Success
32 Things You Already Know
August is here and many of us associate August with the end of summer and going back to school.  You may be going back to school for continuing education, your children may be going back to school or maybe even off to college for the first time.   At, we dedicate a great deal of research and time into helping our clients build successful college and university recruitment programs for interns and new grads, and we also develop a number of resources to help college and university students be successful in the job market. 
Last year, one of our close friends from Kansas State University, Dana Minihan, Assistant Academic Coordinator and Instructor for the Agronomy Department, experienced an August in which she sent her oldest child off to college.   Given her experience as a mom, a college recruiter, and academic advisor that provides guidance for students into careers, she developed a list of ‘32 Things You Already Know’ for her son as he started this new journey in life.

Kingfisher Airlines cancels 31 flights as employees strike

Kingfisher Airlines on Wednesday cancelled over 30 flights from Delhi and Mumbai due to a strike by a section of its employees protesting non-payment of salary.
While 22 flights of the airline were cancelled from Delhi, nine were cancelled from Mumbai, sources said.
A section of its employees, including pilots and engineers are not reporting for work to protest non-payment of salary, they said.
Meanwhile, the board of the near-bankrupt airlines is meeting in New Delhi today to discuss finances ahead of the announcement of quarterly results.
“The airlines’ board is meeting at a five-star hotel in south-west Delhi this afternoon to discuss finances,” the sources said.
The airline’s operations have been disrupted time and again since April when pilots called off work protesting salary delays.
Kingfisher Airlines, which has been facing fund-crunch for almost a year now, has not paid salary to its staff for the past five months.
A sizeable number of its employees have not been paid since February. “We just can’t work without being paid for such a long time. Hence the decision (to strike work),” a pilot has said.
The decision of airline employees to go on agitation coincides with the monsoon session of the Parliament that starts Wednesday.
“We hope that the strike will pull the attention of Parliament and our plight and misery echoes in political corridors,” an employee said.

The much awaited CAG reports on allocation of coal blocks and GMR-run Delhi Airport will be tabled in Parliament during the current session, Finance Minister P Chidabaram said.
“The CAG reports were received in the Ministry of Finance on May 11, 12th and 13th were Saturday (Sunday), so it was put up to the Finance Minister on May 14 and we approved sending of the reports to the President,” he told reporters.
“The reports were sent on May 16, it was received back from the office of the President on May 26 at 2:30 pm, by that time the House was in the process of being adjourned, therefore it was not laid on the table of the House at the end of the last session,” he said.
On being asked whether these reports will be tabled in this session, “Yes”, he said.
“This morning we have issued notice to both Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha requesting the Speaker and the Chairman to fix a date to lay the reports on the table of both the houses simultaneously, once they give us a date we will lay all the three reports. There is no delay at all,” he added.
The Comptroller and Auditor General’s report on allocation of coal blocks between 2004 and 2009 without auction is expected to peg the value of “undue benefits” that the government extended to private entities alone at more than Rs 1.8 lakh crore.
A separate draft CAG report on Ultra Mega Power Projects has alleged undue benefits of Rs 15,849 crore to Reliance Power, by way of surplus coal allocation for two of its UMPPs.
The draft report pegs benefit to Reliance Power from surplus allocation for the Sasan UMPP at Rs 4,875 crore.
CAG has found that Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL), which operates the Delhi’s airport in partnership with the Airports Authority of India, is losing vast amounts of revenue through under-utilisation of land granted to it at concessional rates.
Dear Mr. Naresh, 
We met at the Constitution Club please find below the press invite for We invite you to attend & cover this protest in front of Indian parliament by leaders and fishworkers representatives from across the country. 


National Fishworkers’ Forum has issued a call to observe 9th August, the Quit India Day as National Day of Protest. In solidarity with the nationwide protest, demonstration, & rallies of fishworkers, a sit-in demonstration and public meeting will be held in Delhi’s Jantar Mantar on the 9th August from 11am till 3pm. We invite you to attend & cover this protest in front of Indian parliament by leaders and fishworkers representatives from across the country.

 We urge all support groups and solidarity organisations in Delhi to also endorse the following positions and demands of the fishworkers’ struggle:

·       The Government of India has recently issued 77 new Letters of Permit to foreign fishing vessels over and above 540 already existing permits. This is nothing but allowing loot of country’s fisheries resources by foreign agents at the cost of the Indian fishing communities. At a time when the fisheries resources in the near shore waters of the country is showing alarming signs of reduced yield affecting millions of coastal fish workers this act of the Government of India is abjectly anti-people.

We urge upon the Government of India to stop this anti-national act that pledges the country’s resources to foreign corporations. We demand that GoI cancel the LoP scheme forthwith.

·       The Government of India is planning to set up 40 Nuclear Power Plants on the coast of the country. This is going to destroy coastal ecology and severely affect the coastal and marine natural resources. The life and livelihood of millions of coastal fish workers is at stake. The life and livelihood of millions of coastal fish workers is at stake. From Haripur to Kudankulam and Jaitapur the coastal fishing communities, alongwith other coastal communities are fighting against this anti-people and ecocidal act of the Government.

We urge upon the Government of India to immediately stop this anti-people act and cancel the plan to set up Nuclear Power Plants including Kudamkulam and Jaitapur projects.

·       The Indian coastal fishing communities resent that the assurances given and agreements arrived during talks with the Government of India in the Ministry of Environment and Forests, in both pre and post CRZ 2011 proclamation period, have not been kept by the Government.

-       Violations of CRZ 1991 and 2011 have not been booked.

-       No step has been taken towards putting in place a comprehensive act on coastal conservation.

-       The guidelines to prepare Coastal Management Plan do not prescribe assessment of existing human stresses on the coast vis-à-vis its carrying capacity as a necessary exercise.

-       CRZ 2011 has failed to state that three representatives of the fishing communities will be taken in the National and State Coastal Zone Management Authorities.

We urge upon the Government of India to keep its words and take immediate action on the above mentioned issues.

Kindly join the protest demo and sit-in at Jantar Mantar on the 9th Aug.

With regards,

Narendra Patil & Ramakrishna Tandel
