Sunny side up: Country has changed, future looks really bright, says Mansha

KARACHI : It is no secret that a group within the Memon community of Karachi harbours a grudge against the Manshas of Lahore.
After all, many of the businesses that the former built — and then lost to the disastrous policy of nationalisation in the 1970s — were eventually acquired and turned around by Mian Muhammad Mansha, Chairman of the Nishat group, one of Pakistan’s largest business houses, with interests in textiles, cement, banking, energy, insurance, aviation and agriculture.

Attribute it to his relentless hard work spanning over half a century or call it a result of the privatisation policy that ultimately proved favourable to his group of companies, the fact remains that Mian Mansha is undoubtedly the face of corporate Pakistan today — an icon of the rising private sector of the country whose counsel government officials feel obliged, and perhaps even privileged, to seek.

Thus, it was least surprising to see nearly all big shots of the country’s financial services industry stand in awe as Mian Mansha walked into the ballroom of a Karachi hotel on Friday evening to speak about the offer for sale of shares in a Nishat group subsidiary, Lalpir Power Limited.
However, commensurate with the stature that he has attained in the last two decades, Mian Mansha chose to speak about larger issues confronting the economy of Pakistan.
“This country has changed forever. We’re going to have reverse immigration. The future looks really bright,” said Mian Mansha, who is known to have a close working relationship with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, another Mian from Lahore.

He is currently part of a high-profile, albeit informal, team that the prime minister has tasked with the resolution of the energy crisis.
“The government is going to pay off the circular debt, hopefully once and for…...

Back to School

... Back to shcool For many families, the crisp scent of the fall air is a signal that it is time to start preparing for going back to school. Shopping for new pencils, backpacks and notebooks is always an exciting time for both parents and children alike. Because children have an interest in the things that they are purchasing for school, this is also a great time to discuss how to budget a back to school allowance. When planning for how students will be spending their back to school funds, there are a few key areas that families will want to keep in mind. 1. Back to School Lunches School lunches can vary in both their price and their appeal according to different school systems. Parents will need to consider whether their child will be taking their lunch on some days or buying a lunch from the cafeteria during the week. Another aspect of school lunches for families to discuss is if a student will also be buying breakfast as this can substantially increase a back to school budget. If the student will be allowed to purchase extras such as dessert, then this will also need to be planned out beforehand. Families will also want to plan for any extra snacks or meals that a student might wish to have for when they get home after school. Depending upon the school, parents can decide upon the best way to handle this portion of a student’s back to school allowance for kids. Some schools arrange for an account to be set up so that parents can prepay while others simply accept cash. How......

Page Decision

...Lindsay Carling Rough Draft Period 2 January 24th, 2013 The Page Decision When I was three years old, my parents were divorced. A truly horrible time for any family, and mine was no exception. After about a decade of being married, they decided that they just weren't good for each other and wanted to end things before my brother and I grew up. It was a wise decision. I can't really remember a lot of what happened. (Victim mentality, mother changed, pitied.) Having a family as mixed up as mine just took a little getting used to over the years. A year after the divorce, my father remarried. My stepmother was a widow and already had three boys of her own....Quite the rough and tumble type. My stepmother was delighted to have a girl and did all the things a mother would dream of with a girl, except I didn't want any part of it. I was always very introverted and independent and didn't want any of what she wanted me to do. It remains mostly the same to this day. (Neilson relationship.) About six months after my father remarried, my mother did as well. It was all very weird to me, even at five years old. He's just so...old. My stepfather was nice, but just not in the mood for children (having seven of his own already prior to his divorce who were all older than me and my brother), and he automatically became responsible for two little ones. Good way to start of a marriage. (Negative household) All throughout my life up until my decision, it was always the same. I...

Back to School

...Antonio Magadán Sister Spilsbury English 3 A 12 September 2014 Back to School Coming back to school can be a little annoying and stressful, especially when I’m coming back from a long summer. I have to wake up early in the mornings; there is not much free time for myself; how could I possibly like that? Well, like everything else in life, it’s all about perspective. My life has the potential to be an art, and coming back to school can be an opportunity to prove it. I just have to be creative. I may think school is just taking away all of my time and that I don’t have the chance to play sports or do the things I like, and it might be true. But changing my perspective can allow me to see that school is not keeping me from doing what I always do, but it is an opportunity to learn something new. Now that it’s my senior year and that I’m a member of the student council, school is an opportunity to leave my mark in this school and to make a change in the students’ lives. It’s also an opportunity to learn and prepare myself for the life that I have ahead of me in the future. School can be great if I am patient enough and aware of what is happening around me. That’s why I have to pay attention to my surroundings. But what happens if I find myself in a situation where I have the potential to do something amazing, but I just don’t know what to do? That’s what preparation is for; school can help me prepare myself for the opportunities that may cross my way in the future, so......

Larry Page

...Management Lessons From Larry Page Posted May 16, 2013 by Ryan D Synopsis: After Google’s Larry Page’s announcement that he suffers from vocal chord paralysis, questions of management styles have arisen. How do you manage your company? Have you ever tried it any other way? We discuss. Google CEO Larry Page has trouble speaking at times. For years, people questioned if something was wrong as analysts found his tone not quite right during reporting calls. Two days ago, he clarified the situation for everyone, writing on Google+ that he suffers from vocal cord paralysis likely brought on by a virus damage from a cold. This has brought along a national conversation about how to lead while sick or suffering from an illness. In the post, Page writes: “And giving long monologues is more tedious for me and probably the audience. But overall over the last year there has been some improvement with people telling me they think I sound better. Vocal cord nerve issues can also affect your breathing, so my ability to exercise at peak aerobic capacity is somewhat reduced. That said, my friends still think I have way more stamina than them when we go kitesurfing! And Sergey says I’m probably a better CEO because I choose my words more carefully.” While it’s hard to say whether or not he’s better, it does bring up questions about management styles. Has his improved because of the inability to talk? Would that work for you? Everyone has their own way of managing the...

Larry Page

...Larry Page: CEO of Google Larry Page is the co-founder and CEO of Google. He cofounded the company in 1998 with Sergey Brin while they were both Ph.D. students at Stanford University. He was the first CEO of the company until 2001. From 2001 until 2011 Page was the president of products. In 2011, he reclaimed his position as CEO. He has a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the University of Michigan and a master’s degree in computer science from Stanford University ( Larry Page has an innovation leadership style. An innovate leader is one who develops both vision and strategy, sets up processes to materialize it, and creates an organizational culture that helps to facilitate the creation of ideas and implementation (Bel, 2010). Larry Page has done this as co-founder and continues to innovate as the CEO of Google. Page consistently pushes the envelope at Google, encouraging ideas that most would deem unthinkable. The role of an innovative leader is to inspire by generating ideas, vision, strategy and design, and building the organizational structure, culture, and processes that support them (Bel, 2010). Innovative leaders have the ability to recognize opportunities and develop them, something Page has succeeded at doing at Google. Page has the creativity to come up with ideas and the discipline to develop them. Page encourages risk taking and can handle risks well. Page empowers and facilitates Google employees’ work, which has led to a large number of...

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS Dear Shareholders, It gives us great pleasure to present Tan Chong Motor Holdings Berhad’s Annual Report for the financial year ended 31 December 2012. Tan Chong Motor Group entered 2012 on a challenging note on the back of a weak global economy that is recovering, albeit slowly. Closer to home, the Asian economies were generally more resilient and remain robust, but there were pockets of turbulence in the emerging countries as they grapple to manage and reform their economy. On the domestic front, the year 2012 was no less challenging for Tan Chong Motor Group as we deal with the aftermath effects of the Thailand floods on the automotive supply chain and the uncertainty of the Bank Negara Malaysia’s Responsible Lending Guidelines introduced on 1 January 2012. Nevertheless, Tan Chong Motor Group maintain the course and maneuver carefully and confidently to build our foundation for growth in 2013 and beyond. Review of Financial Performance For the......

Web Page

...Being able to create a web page is an interesting development. In the beginning, researching which tutorials to use for this project seemed a little difficult for deciding which ones to use. There are numerous tutorials out there but only a few of them include specific tutorials and examples on how you can create a web page step by step. The main one that I used was a site named, Page Tutor which goes over each step on how to create your own page. I enjoyed using this site as my main resource to creating my web page because it gave specific examples as well as pictures revealing how the page will look on the internet with using certain codes. The process with creating my web page was not too difficult. In previous semesters, I’ve taken courses related to Web Development and Flash. They were interesting classes and while working on this project it brought back some of the things I’ve learned from those classes. A few things I had forgotten but overall I had fun while working on this web page. The coding was not too hard to grasp but it reminded me how easily you can make a mistake. Some of the mistakes I stumbled upon were not closing brackets or misspelling some of the coding on my page. This can take some time to realize what mistakes you’ve made which I spent quite some time looking over. This was an exciting and interesting project to work on. Hopefully in the future, I will continue with Web Development since it’s a stimulating process....

They require all kinds of different situations in which to feel ‘comfortable’ when writing. Use the following short questionnaire to help you think about your own writing processes. • When you write an important text, do you make more than one draft? • Do you prefer to write on paper or use a computer? Have you ever asked yourself why? • What do you do before you start writing? • How do you start writing? Do you begin at ‘the beginning’ or jump in wherever you have some ideas? Do you think one approach is better than another? • What do you do while you are writing? Do you stop and think? Do you ever go back to the beginning and start again? • When you finish your first complete draft, what do you do next?

The Boys at the Back

...The Boys at the Back The boys’ grades are dropping and dropping, while the girls' grades are getting better and better every year. This is very frustrating for the young boys, and research shows that more and more of the young boys are dropping out of high school and college because of this problem.  But what is the explanation for this? That girls are smarter than boys? Or that boys do not have the brain capacity to straight A’s? Although this might be a delight for many teenage girls, this is not the case.  Christina Hoff Sommers has been brave enough to take this issue up for us in the media in her article “The Boys at the Back”.  Previously, it was the boys who were at the top of the society. The male gender was the ones who had the most and the best opportunities in educations, and so did they of course have the rights, which women have not always had. But beyond that, the parents also expected more of their sons than they did from their daughters; "Families’ favoring sons over daughters in allocating scarce resources for schooling; cultural norms that de-emphasized girls’ education, particularly past high school; an industrial economy that did not require a college degree to earn a living wage; and persistent discrimination toward women in the workplace.” (p. 1, ll. 19-21).  However, in our today’s society parents seems to look more identical at their children. There has always been a small gap in preparation to education between boys and girls. In the......

Larry Page

... Background You always hear stories about people who knew what they wanted to do with their life the second they started living. Larry Page was, and still is, one of those people. Since the tender age of 12, Page knew that one day he would start his own business. Of course, the elements contributing to this decision began at a much younger age than twelve. One would say that the love of inventing things ran in the family. Page's parents, Gloria and Carl Page, were two highly talented and intelligent computer science professors at the University of Michigan. While other six years olds were off playing sports and collecting baseball cards, Page took great interest in dismantling items in his house to "see how it worked". When asked about his childhood, Page commented "(there were) computers and Popular Science magazines everywhere". From this quote, it is quite evident that there was something unusual about Page from a very young age. Page moved on to become the first kid at his school to turn in an assignment from a word processor. One of his first inventions was an inkject printer made entirely from LEGO bricks. As Page grew older, he decided not to put his talent of inventing items to waste, and became interested in the world of business. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering from the University of State Michigan and a Master of Science in computer science from Stanford University. He graduated from both schools with......

...of dignity that human beings possess certain inalienable rights. These rights underpin the limitations on how people should be treated and what they are entitled to do. We say that these rights are inalienable because to deny or obstruct such rights is considered to be an infringement of something both fundamental and intrinsic to every human being. Of course a declaration from the United Nations or any other public body does not of itself protect many human beings in some countries from infringement of their rights every day of the year. The concept of ‘rights’ is itself by no means unproblematic. Grounding or basing ‘rights’ in a concept of human dignity just pushes the difficulty of arguing for the validity of ‘rights’ a stage further back. It becomes necessary then to justify both the concept of human dignity and how that concept itself supports an understanding of human rights. Eventually in arguing for any moral belief we come to a point that is, in effect, for that individual ultimate or fundamental. Indeed Anscombe (1958) suggested that longstanding moral beliefs may persist even where adherence to religion has declined: ‘’To have a law conception of ethics is to hold that what is needed for conformity with the virtues failure in which is the mark of being bad qua4 man (and not merely, say, qua craftsman or logician) – that what is needed for this, is required by divine law. Naturally it is not possible to have such a conception unless you believe in God as a......
