India Innovation – Rice Husk powered Electricity

I am back praising the country for Innovation, this time its one of my favourite future fields, Alternative sources of Power Generation. A Start up from Bihar has come up with s solution for generating power from Rice Husk. Like they say Necessity is the mother of all invention, and availability is the father.

An Indian company called Husk Power Systems is bringing electricity to some of the most rural parts of India by using rice husks as fuel.

Amazing resume styles and samples

[tweetmeme] Nearly all of us have made a resume at some point of our careers and we have thought how to make it pop out to the person looking at the resume and tell what you are all about. I think it is not generally accepted by people to actually change from the mundane formats unless you are from the design world.

Assuming that you have the skills that they’re looking for, a striking and visually appealing resume will go a long way at getting you the creative job that you want. In the worst case scenario, it will at least buy you a few seconds by catching the eye of a recruiter and may become the difference between getting hired or not.
