A Chance of 1.45%

Image
The job market is really bad these days but there're positions. I started looking again and I will be looking more seriously starting September . My source is Indeed and at times I get good messages from them.  There was a position in southern Alberta nearly two weeks ago and I applied. Not very attractive but better than the sh*t job that I've been doing for the past few months. Indeed sent me a message last week indicating that the employer is still looking at the candidates and no decision has been made. I also realized that I am amongst 68 other people who have also applied for this position! This means that I have 1.45% chance of being picked for the interview! That's how bad the unemployment rate is at the moment. I have to keep applying though. Never stop fighting!  (Photo: A U of C economist named Trevor Tombe has presented this graph which shows the gap between the population growth in Province of Alberta and the available workforce [in red].

What Canada Has Become

Image
I have written about stereotyping in Canada and how the governments usually condemn that. Wrong! When you let cheap, low-moral, human-like creatures in the country in hundreds of thousands, you are making a mess that you would never get out of that, even if you did your best. The stupid Government of Canada , for profit purposes has let so many people in that the demography of the Canadian society has been changed drastically!  This could be seen in communities such as Surrey, Brit " SHIT " Columbia (!), Abbotsford, Brit " SHIT " Columbia , Brampton, Ontario and Northeastern quadrant part of Calgary, Alberta . Not to mention that there are literally thousands of other neighbourhoods, communities and perhaps towns in Canada that now when you enter them, as my buddy, The Mumbling Guy , said it once, and he's East Indian himself(!), you don't feel you're in Canada ! Filthy streets, rundown houses, beat up vehicles, men, women and children with strange a

The Signing (Not The Shining!)

Image
  I went to a property lawyer's office yesterday for what's called signing. It is basically a process that legally transfers a property to you. There are endless number of papers that you'd have to sign and the so-called lawyer just gives you a hint as what it is and slide it over you to sign. Paper for your bank, paper for the Provincial land title office, paper that you need to confirm your marital status, etc. At times you need to sign 4 copies of each because each goes to one person.  I went to a nearby bank after the session and got the money for the transfer. The money, in the form of draft, comprised of the down payment and the lawyer's fee. There's more to it but has nothing to do with this session. I will need to pay the Property Insurance and the Property Tax . I have about 2 weeks to move and gain the legal possession. I'm hoping that I can relax and enjoy the place after that. I hope it worth all the hassle! (Photo: My file, was literally and withou

Signs of Great Canadian Economy

Image
With the Liberal government in hot water these days, after the cabinet shuffle which resulted in resignation of the scandalous Finance Minister , things do not seem so good in the country. However the Province is determined to reopen the schools in September and the majority of the businesses are back to full operation. The stupid Government of Canada thinks the more refuges they let in the country, the greater the economy becomes! Wrong and stupid. The disadvantages that the refugees and even the immigrants, when they are let in un-screened, and overwhelmingly in excessive amount, are way more than their advantages and I have seen that in every immigrant and refugee that I have met and even sensed that in Canadian s. With that in mind I'm going to share you signs of great country of Canada and how well we're doing with providing the above picture. This was taken in 4th St., SW in Calgary which is known as Mission neighbourhood. For those ones who are not familiar with Ca

To be or not to be (Afraid of Failure)?

Image
I wrote CQE examination of ASQ twice back in 2016 within a few months apart and failed both times. I was afraid of failure and postponed the exam after the failures and never wrote it again! That was stupid.  Here I am now in 2020 working a minimum wage job like an idiot, struggling in my life! That, in fact, has not been the only mistake of mine which resulted in today's miserable life but I was afraid of failure and the money I would lose. Besides I was lazy. Arnold Schwarzenegger is known by everyone around the world as a bodybuilder first and a successful actor after that. Not to mention his success in politics by becoming the governor of California and the affair that he had with his maid! I don't think he's just someone that you would want to look up to, to build up your life but he once, recently, said something really true: Don't be afraid of failure. It's easier said than done because every failure costs you. And costs you a lot. Last year I attended

Better Weather Now

Image
After a week, or more, of warm weather, which is considered hot in Canada , It got cool again a day, or two ago. It was around 8 ℃ last night and I had to use my thick blanket. Was cold as well while driving to work but cold is always better than warm for me. I can put as much as I want on when it's cold but when it gets warm, I can't take everything off. People here, in Canada , and mostly Caucasian s always complain about the weather, especially when it's a bit cold and is snowing. And I always make fun of them! I even have told a few of them to move to Saudi Arabia where never rains or snows!  (Photo: Beautiful clouds are forming in northern Calgary. It could be the sign of a thunderstorm)

Nothing is Free in Waterworld

A conversation with a couple of fella coworkers led to gaming a few weeks ago and I told the one, who sounded like a gaming expert(!), that I used to play Operation Flashpoint and asked him what was hot during the days. He named me Call of Duty: Warzone and mentioned that it was free to download. So I went home and found the website and started downloading: It took nearly 8 hours to download the damn game! The next day, after work, I intended to try it. The game ran very slowly and then boom! Shut down! Apparently my Video Ram was not adequate enough to support the damn game! That was the meaning of a free game! I then found a free time and went to a computer shop. There I was told that it'd cost nearly $160 to make the PC capable of gaming. In fact Call of Duty games are not new to me. I got a kit in 2006 , a set of disks and they didn't work on my PC so now I may get the chance to run it on this newly upgraded one! These days, many games are offered online. I got the
