    Just because the woman is Asian you are going to assume that she doesn't know English and can't help her in providing services. Really?! SMH....

    We call such things prejudice.

    Random thought: If there is bad news, we should tell the other party face-to-face. Where there is good news, we should call/email the person. True?

    Random thought: Maybe can consult TC on this. Suppose the number of jobs increase is 100, does that mean that if 15,000 people enter the job market, 14,900 left (assuming that 1 person = 1 job)?

    If every type of jobs have enough qualified people who are willing to work, then there will be 14,900 people left that do not have one of those 100 jobs. The people without a job can look for other jobs elsewhere, become self-employed or open business. The new business owners will need employees so more jobs are available. There are lot of other factors and scenarios you can think of.

    Why do you want me to answer the question? Any trick?

    No trick. Because you say that you are a Maths tutor.

    For the American members, I wonder whether anyone of them here is Donald Trump supporter. Whether you agree with him or not, he is politically incorrect and pretty wild. He is not the typical presidential candidate. He is leading in the poll by a wide margin. It's very likely that he will be the presidential candidate for the republican party. If he becomes the president, there will be a lot of changes in the US but we don't know whether change for the better or worse.

    While I am no American, I read from the newspaper that quite a lot of Americans are currently facing a lot of uncertainty, e.g. shootings, migrants, Middle East operations, jobs, economy, welfarism. In times of uncertainty, I think human beings will like to cringe to something which is more direct/straightforward which Donald Trump has been proposing.

    What else do you do when you're homebound from the cold weather and got nothing to do? I was bored and baked some cupcakes. Now, just waiting for my stomach to settle down to work out.



    Happy New Year everyone.
