Got this article via email and would like to share it with all.
Knowledge Management is a buzzword in today’s corporate scenario. Companies have instituted special programs wherein their employees can acquire knowledge from newer avenues. But in the midst of all this, we forget what is also equally important - the application. I have seen many people who have excellent knowledge, they have acquired so much of information which is available at their fingertips but when it comes to practical application they are nowhere. Knowledge when not applied is of no use as it does not produce any results and just rots in the mind. The culmination of knowledge occurs when it is put into use and benefits everybody. Knowledge and Application are like 2 sides of the same coin, one along with the other makes life more valuable.
I have tried to create a knowledge-application chart as given below. This chart will help us classify ourselves and others among the listed 4 categories:
1. Dummies: They score very low on both the fronts and they are yet to begin the journey. No point talking about them.
2. Sinners: This category of people have lot of knowledge but they do not apply that knowledge. According to me having knowledge and not applying for the benefit of growth is a sin.
3. Survivors: These are a unique group of people, who apply almost everything they know. The ability to apply makes these individuals survivors.
4. Achievers: These are the people who should be looked up to. They score high on both the parameters. They achieve a lot and become somebody because they are busy applying the knowledge which they continuously acquire.
The idea is not just to plot individuals in the chart, but what is more important is to realize that it’s not the end-of-the road. We can move up the matrix by having a higher knowledge-application ratio and also help others to move. That’s the way to go….

I have been using oracle 9i and was pretty comfy with the feature set and the user friendliness. The Management console was pretty much simpler to use and understandable even by a novice user.
I upgraded to Oracle 10g just few days back (Well the real reason being to fix a bug basically) and after installing it I was completely lost. No Management consloe as it was there in Oracle 9i???? I was completely lost..
After googling for a while i found that Oracle 10g had a web based management console. Now, generally you log into the oracle database using the very famous scott and tiger credentials and that was not the case with 10g. Again after googling for a while, found that you need to use SYSMAN as the username and the password that you provide during the installation.
hmmmm. It’s a mamoth change from 9i and will take a while to figure out the new feature set included in 10g but for sure it is much more complex than it looks. I’m playing aroun

Dan Osman known for the exceptionally dangerous sports of “free-soloing” (rock climbing without ropes or other safety gear) and doing “controlled free-falls” (deliberately falling several hundred feet (his record was over 1200 feet) from a cliff while relying on a safety rope). He was known for living a bohemian lifestyle, rarely working, and living in a treehouse for months at a time. However he was the star of several rock climbing videos, which brought free-soloing to a wider audience.He died November 23, 1998 at the age of 35 after his rope length was miscalculated carrying out a controlled free-fall jump from a rock pillar called Leaning Tower in Yosemite National Park. He is survived by his daughter Emma Osman.
