Ready to take the leap into management?

Well, the first thing you should do before having the conversation with your boss is figure out whether you’re actually qualified to lead. And no, I’m not denying that you’re doing a great job now.

It said decisions were taken after “detailed deliberations at the highest Executive level”. Hence, no “interference” is called for in judicial proceedings. In other words, the Centre has asked the courts — Supreme Court and the High Courts — to “leave it open” for the government to discharge its functions in “larger interests”.

However, an examination of the Supreme Court orders from April 30 to May 6 show that the

Among these the most important was the manufacture of the native cloth,–‘tappa’,–so well known, under various modifications, throughout the whole Polynesian Archipelago.
“I should like to know how the weavers are getting on with my cloth,” said the Emperor to himself, after some little time had elapsed; he was, however, rather embarrassed, when he remembered that a simpleton, or one unfit for his office, would be unable to see the manufacture. To be sure, he thought he had nothing to risk in his own person; but yet, he would prefer sending somebody else, to bring him intelligence about the weavers, and their work, before he troubled himself in the affair.
“I am a great inventor, you must know, and I manufacture my products in this lonely spot.”
An oppressed class under the sway of the feudal nobility, an armed and self-governing association in the mediaeval commune; here independent urban

Every view we may take of the subject, as candid inquirers after truth, will serve to convince us, that it is both unwise and dangerous to deny the federal government an unconfined authority, as to all those objects which are intrusted to its management. It will indeed deserve the most vigilant and careful attention of the people, to see that it be modeled in such a manner as to admit of its being safely vested with the requisite powers.
