Educate yourself to work intelligently

"Ask me my three main priorities for government and I tell you education, education, and education."  
Tony Blair  (source)

Regardless of whether we like him or not, he pointed at a very important and fundamental concept. What would make a great change in our life and future of human is education, as Sal Khan said, not president Kardashian (source).
After being student for over 20 years, when I look back and observe my student life and experience, I would say that usually in the current system,  going to school is more “getting better grade” oriented rather than “better understating a subject”. I say this base on my experiences and my observation from the environment where I live. I studied in different countries and have experience of attending in high quality school; all of these gave me an enhanced understanding the concept of education worldwide.

Everyone demand “power” (at least what I believe) and “knowledge is power”, so to gain power one must educate himself/herself. Therefore, to make change in the world or at least in personal life, we need power and power comes through education, it’s regardless of how you may use your power, positive toward human or negative. 

Just to clarify that conversation here is about pure education which may or may not gain through institution. There are some people who paid hell amount of money and graduated from top university and knows nothing while there exist some people who never been to school and made big differences in our lives. The problem with these days education in our system is the first group who seem to be graduated and educated. They will hold important position and subsequently corruption and lost occur, for example economy will collapse. They will teach next generation of student and you should guess what would be the result.
  
We are actually witnessing the result of such incident, they force student to try for getting better grade rather than better understating. I and probably you had classmates who gained better mark while we knew that they do not deserve that however based on current system it is fair and even worse they will be employed before anyone else (good luck! with such company).
You may ask, OK! You are right, what is your suggestion? I would say, we should have a deep review in our education system and try to build a system which is fair to everyone. I know this is a controversial subject but let’s talk about it and find a solution. Please let me know what you think.

Why I don't have social media account?

Just to be clear, I do not have any social media accounts except LinkedIn. No Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc. 
I used to use some of them but I dropped them all before 2013 and now I am clean for over 4 years. I kept LinkedIn because I use for business contact only.
Today, I came cross this video and found quite interesting as I agree with what he says. 

I always said, the social media website/app specially Facebook and Instagram are just a game. It's funny how some users write the fake status which they don't believe it themselves but other believe it and vice versa. 
If you are making money or adding value to your life by using these apps, then use it otherwise don't kid yourself and just get rid of them, simply. I know it's hard in the beginning but trust me, it worth it, you are not alone. 


I solved GCHQ puzzle and this is how I did it

Today, I was reading the BBC news and I stumbled upon this GCHQ puzzle:
Take the digits 1,2,3 up to 9 in numerical order and put either a plus sign or a minus sign or neither between the digits to make a sum that adds up to 100. For example, one way of achieving this is:
1 + 2 + 34 - 5 + 67 - 8 + 9 = 100, which uses six plusses and minuses. What is the fewest number of plusses and minuses you need to do this? I love to challenge myself with these kind of puzzles, so I solved this and here is how:
We have 9 numbers [1 to 9] and also we have three possible separators [+, - and nothing] which to fill the gap between numbers we have 8 combinations of separators, e.g. we have 1+2+3+4+5+6+7-89 which in this case we have six times plus, one minus and one time nothing. 
So, I need to find all possibilities of combination which total is: 6561

Then, hook the possible combinations into numbers and check the total, easy enough. Now print the solution.
I have written this algorithm in PHP but ea…

Laptop touchpad issue on Linux

I installed Linux (Ubuntu 16.4 LTS) on my new laptop, Fujitsu E series, all went well apart from touchpad which did not work at all. I spend few hours searching (AKA Googling) but could not find any hope. That was embarrassing for me who called himself professional Linux user but cannot fix touchpad issue, what about typical Linux user? there must be way, so I kept searching and reading until finally I found the fix and all is working now. Here is the fix if anyone has similar issue:

In cammed line, run:
sudo modprobe -r psmouse

It should work fine for now but only for current session, it may not work after restarting your laptop, so to add permanent fix, do:sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/psmouse.conf

And add following, then save and exit.

options psmouse proto=imps


I used vim, you can use your favourite text editor such as gedit, vi etc. I hope this helps someone and save their time. Read more on modprobe.


Thank you for reading this, as always happy to hear from you.
