Outrage as Indian guru blames gang rape victim
AFP: A popular Indian spiritual guru has sparked a backlash after saying a 23-year-old student could have averted a murderous gang-rape by begging for mercy from her attackers. Self-styled godman Asharam, known to his followers as Bapu, or father, told his devotees on Tuesday that blame for the assault on a moving bus in New Delhi on December 16 should not just rest with her attackers.

"This tragedy would not have happened if she had chanted God’s name and fallen at the feet of the attackers. The error was not committed by just one side.” WTF? It’s a good thing major publications are ripping him for that stance.

"Ninjas" suddenly in extremely high demand by tech companies

  • 2,505% increase in job postings looking for a “ninja” in May 2012 vs. May 2006
  • 67% increase in job postings looking for a “jedi” over the same period
  • 810% increase in job postings looking for a “rock star” or “rockstars” source

» Also in demand: “Gurus,” “evangelists”: If you’re a techie, companies aren’t afraid to pepper their job postings with such phrases in an effort to get your foot in the door. Don’t expect these monikers in the title — rather, they’ll be in the descriptions. If we ever have an opening here at SFB, we’re going to look for a “plumber who can rock a tanooki suit.”
