The CEO

Once there was a CEO.

Pretty good chap, but couldnt bear to hear NO.

Liked to work quite hard and nice

Had office affairs many, His only VICE

Treated his team to lavish offsites,

Where he could sleep with office wives

Then got caught with his pants down.

Yesterday’s genius became today’s clown.

Fired by the Board, the CEO thought again,

started up a company ,with a new brand name,

Couldnt really help it,

He was addicted to playing the game.

O CEO, close yet so far.

Listen to our advice ,O Noble Czar.

Quit fooling around and be decent again.

Lest your ventures go again in vain.

Rules of RIO Carnival

Samba group Beija Flor was declared Brazil’s carnival champion for the fifth time in six years, wowing judges with gold-encrusted, winged dancers and green jungle display floats.

Beija Flor’s lavishly decorated float scooped the top prize at the Rio carnival.

While Beija Flor’s dancers were topless, the judges drew the line at going bottomless, penalizing the rival Sao Clemente group for breaking a rule against display of genitalia during its 80-minute parade.

 

 

They didn’t name the offender, but she was widely believed to be samba queen Viviane Castro, who danced wearing only a 1.6-inch patch, believed to be the smallest in Rio parade history.

The Ultimate Rejection Letter

Herbert A. Millington Chair -
Search Committee
412A Clarkson Hall,
Whitson University College Hill,
 MA  34109
  Dear Professor Millington,  Thank you for your letter of March 16.
After careful consideration,
 I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal
to offer me an assistant professor position in your department.
  This year I have been particularly fortunate in receiving an
unusually large number of rejection letters.  With such a varied
and promising field of candidates, it is impossible for me to
accept all refusals.   Despite Whitson's outstanding qualifications
 and previous experience in rejecting applicants, I find that your
rejection does not meet my needs at this time.
 Therefore, I will assume the position of assistant professor
in your department this August.
I look forward to seeing you then.
Best of luck in rejecting future applicants.
Sincerely, Chris L. Jensen

Content Management Systems (CMS)

The two main content management systems are Drupalhttp://www.decisionstats.com/drupal/

and Joomla

http://www.decisionstats.com/joomla

These are two pages as test examples for the two different CMS’s.

Advantages of them are –

Easier to manage a lot of content

Disadvantages-

Difficult to configure as compared to wordpress

Less Attractive Themes or Plugins.

I preferred drupal precisely because it gives some added flexibilty in themes and editing content.
