Racial Discrmination....

Indian-born US citizen Neelima Tirumalasetti announced today she has filed suit in federal court in Texas against Caremark RX, Inc. and its subsidiary CaremarkPCS for almost daily anti-Indian harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.

Tirumalasetti worked in Caremark’s Richardson, TX facility, as a senior IT analyst in quality assurance. The lawsuit alleges that, after Caremark announced in December 2003 that it would be outsourcing Richardson work to IBM India, Tirumalasetti became the target of widespread anti-Indian harassment....

Children Learn by Monkey See, Monkey Do. Chimps Don't. - New York Times

Children Learn by Monkey See, Monkey Do. Chimps Don't. - New York Times: "Mr. Lyons sees his results as evidence that humans are hard-wired to learn by imitation, even when that is clearly not the best way to learn. If he is right, this represents a big evolutionary change from our ape ancestors. Other primates are bad at imitation. When they watch another primate doing something, they seem to focus on what its goals are and ignore its actions.

As human ancestors began to make complicated tools, figuring out goals might not have been good enough anymore. Hominids needed a way to register automatically what other hominids did, even if they didn't understand the intentions behind them. They needed to imitate.

Not long ago, many psychologists thought that imitation was a simple, primitive action compared with figuring out the intentions of others. But that is changing. 'Maybe imitation is a lot more sophisticated than people thought,' Mr. Lyons said.

We don't appreciate just how automatically we rely on imitation, because usually it serves us so well. 'It is so adaptive that it almost never sticks out this way,' he added. 'You have to create very artificial circumstances to see it.'

In a few years, I plan to explain this experience to Charlotte. I want her to know what I now know. That it's O.K. to lose to the chimps. In fact, it may be what makes us uniquely human"
