I donated mine today, When will you give the missing type???

The Red Cross continuously relies on the generosity of volunteer blood donors to help patients in need: cancer patients, trauma victims, heart and other surgery patients, newborn babies and birthing mothers. The need for blood is constant, but there simply aren’t enough new blood donors being added to the ranks to help those in need.
In fact, the problem is an alarming one:
• Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood.
• Only three percent of people in the U.S. give blood in each year.
• Engagement from new blood donors has declined steadily for most of the past decade.

Fail forward-fail for the best to come

The concept of failure is not as the failure itself. It relates on how you deal with a failure. Everyone in his/her life has to deal with one or more failures in various fields. The point is not what happens, is what you do with what’s happened.
A New Frame for Failure
F: Failure
A: Always
I: Invites
L: Learning

A failure can be of different magnitude and intensity. It can be a catastrophe like the TITANIC or just forgetting your child birthday.

Moving Beyond Pie and Bar Charts

If you are the one, who plays with data frequently then you must be using these two chart types regularly like myself (pie and bar charts are easy, aren’t they? P.S I use them every now and then).
But if you attend Stephanie Evergreen’s session (which I did), you will probably start having a second thought, every time the pie option pops up. So, what are the alternatives??
Here is the answer to this question which is on your mind. I am sharing an image from Evergreen’s session which is going to make your life easy and work interesting!!

Volunteering at Karma Kitchen

At the last Sunday of October, I got a chance to volunteer at Karma kitchen with my housemate Itena. It was a rainy and cold day but we were determined that we will do volunteering because we signed up for it.  We reached the Himalayan restaurant at 11:00 AM and were greeted by Krishna and his crew members.

Karma Kitchen was first started in March 2007 in Berkeley, California, by an Indian-born person named Nipun Mehta, and over ten years it has been expanded to many cities and even countries. It is a type of restaurant where you get a 0 $ bill, but you can pay for the coming guests in your love for generosity. The Karma kitchen people call it “Pay it forward concept”.

WEE and the Prevailing Customs

“They don’t want to let go of the power, power is such a luxury individual can ever devour”, this sentence echoes in my ears from an elderly lady from my home town, while I am listening to an intense conversation about women economic empowerment (WEE) in the secretary’s office for Global Women’s Issues.
