“When the rain turned white winter had arrived.” I wasn’t sure what Grandpa meant by that, it could snow any time of year? It had even snowed in June once. “Ah, puzzled, eh, Piotr? No need. You see, it didn’t stop. The snow started to fall in small speckles of white, then flakes, then great […]

UBER’s Rise From SCAB To Superstar

So in case the term is new to you, what is a SCAB?

The Urban Dictionary defines it as: ” A worker, often temporary, who crosses a strikers’ picket line, going to work in place of the strikers.” An example of usage:
“The scabs had their cars egged when they arrived at the factory.”

SCABS used to be looked down on in America.

Well, this is how UBER arrived on the business scene in 2008.


What happened? First of all, UBER started using a computer “APP” to order a taxi (or whatever you call it in UBERese).

Uber had some financial problems like trying to break into China. But some smart financial persons solved their money problems by modifying their business plan. Now they are in the “self driving car” business.


Now they are in the “tech elite” of America!

No word about “scab labor” anymore.

They even got invited to Donald Trump’s “tech conference”. This is the same Donald Trump who counts on support of organized labor embracing a “scab company”.

California could not handle testing of self-driving cars, so they relocated to Arizona


How to be a Good Friend


It is said, that when GOD made Man and Woman,
He knew he would have to make another Human.

This Human, he gave to us, as Our Friend,
On whom, we could Blend and Depend.

A Family, is a Relationship bond by Duty,
But a Friend is one with whom, you share Life’s Journey.

Friendship is a ship, that never Sinks,
It is a mix of various kinks and Links.

A Friend is one, who walks in, when others walk Out,
A Friend is someone with whom you can be yourself and Freak-out.

Friends, are the most important ingredient, in the recipe of Life,
He is one who stays Beside you, even when you are in a Strife.

They say ‘Hold True Friends’ with Both your Hands,
Even in an hurricane, Beside You, they will Stand.

Then why, Today, you have become so Selfish, My Friend,
Why is it, that…
