U.S. companies have been hiring workers from India for years, especially graduates of U.S. universities. But Indian companies, as well as American firms operating in India, are now trying to convince some of them to return to India. A job fair at the San Jose Convention Center this weekend is focused on helping companies recruit Indian workers who may in the U.S. on a visa by informing them about the professional and economic opportunities back home. Organizers also stressed that the job fair is also open to anyone who is interested in working in India.

Yes, it was, according to TheNextWeb -
Have you ever stopped to wonder where the image was taken, or who took it? In fact, the image is so crisp you might have assumed it wasn’t real at all. The man behind the camera is American photographer Charles O’Rear. Don’t let his name fool you into thinking that the photo was in fact taken in Ireland. Bliss, as it turns out, is in California. In Sonoma County to be exact. The photo was taken in 1996, years before Windows XP launched, and before the area was converted into a vineyard.

Negro Bar State Park is located in California, near Sacramento.
According to mental_floss - Negro Bar is a historical site, but not the segregated tavern it sounds like. It was a tiny mining camp that sprung up during the Gold Rush of 1849, situated on a sand bar, near mines first worked by a few African-American miners. Those first miners moved on to better gold fields by 1852, and new miners of various origins moved in. But the name remained.

“This appeal involves an issue far too often presented to this court, namely the admissibility of evidence and the statutory compliance with the procedures employed by several municipalities in this county in what have come to be known as ‘photo enforcement’ citations,” the unanimous ruling stated. At trial, attorney R. Allen Baylis objected to the admission of the red light camera photographs because the city had failed to lay a proper foundation for the evidence. The court agreed.“The photographs contain hearsay evidence concerning the matters depicted in the photograph including the date, time and other information,” the ruling summarized. “The person who entered that relevant information into the camera-computer system did not testify. The person who entered that information was not subject to being cross-examined on the underlying source of that information. The person or persons who maintain the system did not testify. No one with personal knowledge testified about how often the system is maintained. No one with personal knowledge testified about how often the date and time are verified or corrected. The custodian of records for the company that contracts with the city to maintain, monitor, store and disperse these photographs did not testify. The person with direct knowledge of the workings of the camera-computer system did not testify.”

The California Milk Advisory Board may have shot itself in the hoof. The board, which promotes the state’s dairy farmers and is overseen by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is again preparing to film commercials touting California milk from California cows — in New Zealand. In January, it plans to shoot part of its new series of 10 California “Happy Cows” TV commercials in Auckland, taking advantage of that country’s low production costs.

“A distraught man dressed as Santa Claus opened fire at a Christmas Eve party and then apparently set the house ablaze, killing at least three people, police officials said. Several hours later, the shooter killed himself.”
“Bruce Jeffrey Pardo, 45, knocked on the front door of a home on the 1100 block of Knollcrest Drive in Covina around 11:30 Wednesday night, said Covina Police Lt. Pat Buchanan. Thought to be someone hired to entertain children at the party, Pardo was let in the house and immediately opened fire with a handgun, Buchanan said.”
