Hi I read this post it's amazing...thanks to share your Shimer Internship/Mentorship (SIM) Program experience....I learned some good things by this post...I will continue to look out for more great articles in the future thank you.


Seems like very tough internship progress you've been going through!! It's one of the best educative part of education life and good to see some meaningful lessons you've shared as well. I've learned quite good lessons reading through this amazing post. Thanks for nice allocation.


Wow! How passed tests by fire? :)

Nomi's Internships are great opportunities, which should be availed by every eligible candidate. I would like to refer you towards the Graduate Development Program by Rand Merchant Bank, where a lot of vacancies for interns are also available in 2014.


Our culture has become obsessed with the pursuit of happiness. Yet “happiness cannot actually be pursued but must ensue from living a meaningful life”1.
We feel that even though survival is essential, life should not only be about surviving. For most organisms, the purpose of life and all their derived goals and activities are actually rather limited to surviving. But highly successful organisms are efficient in reducing time required for survival and have some extra time to spend. The natural way of spending this time is for own well-being, or happiness as people call it. While microorganisms rarely cease to look for nutrition, lion can afford to rest most of the day.
Sustainable survival is our very purpose of life. Check out Sustainable Survival also on Facebook.
This is the time of the year to think about what is important. Sustainable survival is our very purpose of life. Check out Sustainable Survival also on Facebook.
The problem is the short-term incentives of global leadership that do not promote sustainable survival
I think that Sustainable Survival is our very purpose of life - what else we do would make sense if we could not survive? Our survival is seriously threatened now. Let's protect it.
