re: How does the board feel about H-1B visas? - ewdij
[quote]As I'm Canadian/Indonesian, the process took around 2 years for me. However, as there is a per country quota, if you are applying as an Indian/Chinese, the wait can take longer than 6 years.[/quote] If you are an Indian the waits right now is 12 years and exponentially growing. Indians who...

re: How does the board feel about H-1B visas? - ewdij
[quote]Do you mind if I ask what field you work in? And did you eventually seek full citizenship? Asking because I love the idea of the smartest individuals of other countries wanting to come here and working to become Americans. But from what I understand, that's not necessarily the standard ex...

re: How does the board feel about H-1B visas? - ewdij
[quote]Against this program which is being abused by employers. One part that many don't understand is that the foreign worker is held hostage to the sponsoring employee. If they are unhappy with their employment they either suck it up or go home. Also, many older, 50+ year old IT workers get replac...

re: Will whites get all the special benefits if they become a minority? - ewdij
I don't know for sure what the correct answer to your question will be, but I think no. That is because whites will still not be underrepresented. Just like right now, even though Asian-Americans and India-Americans are minorities, they do not get any benefits for college admission as there is an...

re: New 70" tv - ewdij
I was recently in the market for a 70" tv. I went with the Vizio d70d3 ([link=(http://www.vizio.com/d70d3.html)]LINK[/link]). It is definitely not Vizio's nicest TV. It is 1080p. It is full array, but I believe they have reduced the number of active LED zones on this model. The refresh rate is not v...

re: Conservative Tribune claims media covered up fact that UCLA shooter was Muslim - ewdij
What you are referring to is [link=(https://www.everipedia.com/mainak-sarkar/)]this[/link] website. That has nothing to do with UCLA. I stand by my previous statement that is a Hindu name. As a Indian and Bengali myself, I have a hard time believing that the killers was a muslim. As a universi...

re: Conservative Tribune claims media covered up fact that UCLA shooter was Muslim - ewdij
The killers last name is a common Hindu last name from the state of West Bengal in India. So he is both an Indian and a Bengali. His first name refers to a Hindu mythological mountain ([link=(https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mount_Mainak)]LINK[/link]). There is nothing Muslim about this guy's name. T...

re: Time off for Christian Holidays? "Check Your Privilege" - ewdij
I do enjoy the time off during Christian holidays. Why should I STFO and not ask for the same privileged that the majority population enjoys regarding non Christian religious holidays? Isn't you asking me to STFO when I am raising this issue manifesting your majority privilege?...

re: Time off for Christian Holidays? "Check Your Privilege" - ewdij
I actually support this notion, even though I like to use the term "majority privilege". I am not a Christian (raised a Hindu, now an atheist). I enjoy having the day off during Christmas holidays. But acknowledge the fact that non Christians do not get the same benefit in USA. I know it is impossib...

re: Bernie Sanders defines freedom as having economic security and your needs met - ewdij
I actually agree that you have to be financially stable to be "free". If you are not financially stable, you are not really free. The debate should be about how to make that happen, or if the government has a role in making that happen in the first place. ...

re: Best stylish prescription glass site? - ewdij
I really like Warby Parker. If you live in a city or visiting a city where they have a showroom, go there to get you pupillary distance measured. I am wearing a pair since early 2013 and it still works fine. Recently got a second pair, but scratched it somehow. Warby is currently in the process o...
