What is common between Twitter’s Blue Ticks, Diamonds, and the OPEC? Will Elon Musk’s plan to sell the blue ticks improve or harm Twitter’s fortunes? What does it mean for the value of the blue ticks for people?
I have compiled a list of Indian companies that offer remote editorial work. The list is based on the information provided by my fellow Indian editors.
SHORT STORY/SATIRE – ‘The ‘conference room’ was a corner of the studio floor with big glass windows, seven bean bags, and toys scattered around. Raman Ronadhona had taken a bean bag next to a stuffed bulldog. The Founder-CEO, the 30-something Chaman Chaturkumar, stomped in and plonked into a huge tan bean bag shaped like a chair.

In my parents’ generation, getting fired from a job in India was kind of rare. Not any more. In the past few years, organization after organization, in all kinds of industries, is doing large-scale layoffs.
One of the most common expletives in North India (and I’m sure elsewhere) begins with ‘chu’. It is naturally uncivil and, you guessed it, ‘unparliamentary’. What is interesting is that some locals dampen the auditory (but not the semantic) blow of the word by replacing ‘chu’ with ‘phu’.
Any acquisition/commissioning editors out here? I’d like to know what skills are needed for the job/what the role entails. W.r.t. academic publishing.
