This is what you get for turning your IT department over to the curry-scented wage pirates...

(AP) — Target Corp. (NYSE:TGT) Chief Information Officer Beth Jacob is resigning effective Wednesday as the retailer overhauls its information security and compliance division in the wake of a massive pre-Christmas data breach.

Target Chairman, President and CEO Gregg Steinhafel said in a statement released to The Associated Press that the company will search for an interim chief information officer who can help guide the company through the transformation.

Jacob had been in her current role since 2008 and oversaw teams in the U.S. and India.

Target disclosed on Dec. 19 that the data breach compromised 40 million credit and debit card accounts between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15. Then on Jan. 10 it said hackers also stole personal information — including names, phone numbers as well as email and mailing addresses — from as many as 70 million customers.

Stephen Fleming, a collaborator douchebag now hiding at Georgia Tech (WTF is a "Enterprise Innovation Institute" anyway?) had to chime in and support high-tech slave trader Mayor Bloomberg on his obscure blog.  For that, he got a resounding ass-whooping by Insurgents, and resorted to pansy-ass liberal academic whining involving the "Holocaust", and subtly dropping the "I know who your and I have your IP" card. 

Here is the post in its entirety, with its obession with all things brown and curry-scented:

 

Back in June, I blogged about immigration as it affects student entrepreneurs at Georgia Tech. Apparently that qualified me as an expert on immigration policy! Someone at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce noticed what I’d written and invited me to a forum in Washington yesterday on “Immigration and American Competitiveness.”

It gave me a chance to meet Michael Bloomberg, and I strongly recommend that you take the time to listen to his keynote, which is archived on C-SPAN here. He made my points far better than I could have!

But I also enjoyed the panel discussion which followed. If you’re inclined, you can watch the whole thing here. My bit starts at 43:20, and I chime in again around 1:27:10. Since I had my notes on my iPad, I was able to update them in realtime at the event; that text is below.

(FYI, using Pages on the iPad with 40-point Helvetica makes a great personal teleprompter!)

Thanks for inviting me here. I appreciate the opportunity.

I could probably replace my prepared remarks with “What Mike said.” His Honor did a great job.

Although I’m not an academic, I think my role today is to discuss immigration from the point of view of a major research university. And I’d like to follow that with some of the issues with current immigration policies that affect what our students can do AFTER graduation.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Georgia Tech, we’re the largest engineering school in the United States. But we’re not just big; some folks think we’re pretty good.

U.S. News ranks us as the 4th best engineering school in the U.S. — when the top three are MIT, Stanford, and Cal Berkeley, #4 isn’t a bad place to be.

They rank us as the 7th best public university of all types.

And we’re not just good at one thing. They rank twelve types of engineering degrees — electrical, mechanical, civil, etc. We rank in the Top Ten for eleven of them, and we don’t offer the twelfth.

We’re in Atlanta. As you might expect, since the civil rights era, we have a strong history of graduating minorities. Whether you’re measuring Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Ph.D.’s, we’re Top Ten for African-Americans, for Asian-Americans, and for Hispanics, and for minorities overall.

And we have a lot of foreign students.

Right now, about 7% of our undergraduates and 40% of our graduate students are on foreign visas.

Forty percent. As Tom pointed out, the national average for STEM graduate students is actually over 50%. And as Robin pointed out it’s north of 60% in computer science.

At Georgia Tech, the bulk of our foreign students come from, unsurprisingly, India, China, and Korea. But, overall, they come from 115 countries. –I don’t think I could name 115 countries!– Overall, between graduate and undergraduate, that’s 18% of our total enrollment, or about 3800 out of 21,000 students.

It’s hard to get into Georgia Tech. We get six applications for every slot in our freshman class, so you know that we’re pretty picky about who we let in. The 3800 foreign students on our campus are the best of the best. Smart, hard-working, flexible… you couldn’t ask for better students. Or better employees. Or better CITIZENS.

But the United States has put up barriers to letting these students build their careers in America. Just getting their student visas approved — not even talking yet about permanent residency! — is a bureaucratic nightmare. It discourages many of them to just give up, and study in other countries.

It didn’t used to be that way. A hundred years ago, the United States had, at best, a second-tier set of colleges and universities. Harvard was pretty good, but things fell off pretty rapidly from there. But, by 1950, we had unquestionably the finest higher education system in the world. We still have it today, although the rest of the world is trying hard to catch up.

What happened? IMMIGRATION. Our university system in this country was BUILT on immigration.

Specifically, Hitler came to power in 1933 and destroyed the German university system, which at that time was the finest in the world. Many of those professors, and even students, escaped to Britain and the United States. That won the war. Imagine the Manhattan Project without Jewish scientists. Imagine if they’d stayed in Germany.

After World War II, Europe was wrecked, and even MORE came to the United States from all over the Continent.

And then from Latin America, and from Asia… We imported the best brains from all over the world into our colleges and universities. And that led to a half-century of unchallenged economic dominance.

A couple of months ago, I was at a Georgia Tech student event, the Convergence Innovation Competition. I was INCREDIBLY impressed by the quality of the student entrepreneurs. They were mostly Master’s candidates in Computing or Electrical Engineering. And they were demonstrating apps for iPhones and Androids and even your television that were commercial-grade, or could get there.

I spent about a decade as a venture capitalist, and I was IMPRESSED. This was a class project, but it felt like a venture capital event. I started asking them, “Do you want to start a company around this?” I’ve still got friends in the venture business, and I think I could get some of these teams funded!

But the answer was usually a smile, and a quiet “No, I can’t.” So then I figured it out, and I started asking them: “Where are you from?”

Of 28 competitors, 26 were from overseas.

There’s no way that these 26 students can graduate from Georgia Tech and take what they’ve learned here and start companies in the United States.

They want to, but they can’t.

If you can only remember one thing I’ve said this morning, please remember that. We’re educating these children, they want to start companies here, and we’re telling them to go home.

They want to stay, but they can’t.

Removing the caps on H1-Bs wouldn’t help them. Our immigration service doesn’t recognize self-employment. And the kids couldn’t afford the fees, anyhow. So, they can find a big-company employer who is able to invest $20,000 or $30,000 in getting them an H1-B and eventually a green card. Or, they can go home. And, as Elizabeth pointed out, their economies are thriving back home, so it’s more than likely that they’ll compete with us from there!

Now, entrepreneurship is HARD. Most people who try it, fail. I think the willingness to pack your bags and move to a different country for graduate school is a pretty good filter for whether a young person has what it takes to start a successful company. And the data supports that. Over HALF of the startups in Silicon Valley have a founder from India or China.

And, remember, as the Mayor mentioned, the Kauffman Foundation found that young companies have accounted for essentially ALL the job growth in the United States over the last twenty-five years. But our immigration policy doesn’t encourage foreign graduate students to participate in that job creation. Work for a big company, or go home.

Just at Georgia Tech, we’ve seen the impact of this over and over again. One of our spinout companies, Whisper Communications, was based on work from a graduate student in electrical engineering. He jumped through all the immigration hoops possible, but eventually exhausted his options. He gave up.

He was immediately snapped up by Apple, where I figure he’s building the iPhone 6, but it delayed the formation and growth of that company by over a year. We had to bring in new founders without immigration problems.

Who knows what could have happened in that year? And I’m sure our former student is contributing economic value working for Apple, but nothing like what he could be doing in a startup.

John Doerr, one of the most successful venture capitalists in history, said “I would staple a green card to the diploma of anyone that graduates with an advanced degree in the physical sciences or engineering in the United States.” He’s absolutely right.

These people are going to create value. Create jobs. Pay taxes, for crying out loud! Why would we NOT want them to stay here? Get married, raise families, buy a house, buy 2.3 cars… the multipliers are endless.

Now, what I always hear when I speak on this subject is that “immigrants take jobs from Americans.” The Mayor already addressed this. That’s just not true for entrepreneurial immigrants! They don’t TAKE jobs, they MAKE jobs!

First for themselves, then for co-founders, and eventually—if successful—for hundreds, or, thousands of employees.

This is NOT a zero-sum game. If these immigrants aren’t allowed to create jobs, those jobs WILL NOT go to native-born Americans… those jobs simply won’t exist.

And these aren’t jobs flipping burgers or picking crops. These are high-quality high-paying jobs that your kids would like to have someday. Example: There are two million “Internet jobs” in the United States. None of those jobs existed twenty years ago. Most of the COMPANIES didn’t exist twenty years ago. Now, subtract all of those Silicon Valley companies who were founded by immigrants. It’s a pretty ugly picture.

And although Silicon Valley gets all the press, it’s deeper than that. As a bit of history, not just Google and Intel, but Pfizer, DuPont, U.S. Steel, and Procter & Gamble were once startups founded by immigrants.

Earlier, Alejandro repeated the cliché that “we are a nation of immigrants.” It’s a cliché, but it’s also true. We still have the world’s best graduate schools; other countries are catching up, but we started from far ahead.

Moreover… We have a history of risk-taking, of capital fluidity, and of tolerance of failure that has made the U.S. the best place in the world to start a company. Other countries are catching up here, too, but our culture and history give us an edge. Even with our current financial troubles, I believe that we’re still the entrepreneurial Mecca for the world.

But we have to make sure that we attract the best, brightest, and most innovative entrepreneurs, whether they were born here or not.

In honor of the Mayor, i made up a baseball analogy, but he beat me to it. Building fences to keep out brainpower is like saying that “My baseball team has enough talent, let the other teams get some good players, too.” That’s not how the Yankees play the game, and it’s not how the United States should play the game.

With that, I’ll pass the microphone and look forward to the rest of the panel. Thank you.

 

Ironically, with his fat pasty skin and obsolete tech skills (his words), this douche would be a HUGE mark for any Indian slumdog scab, and would be forced train his curry-scented replacement immediately, that is, IF HE HAD A REAL FUCKIN' JOB.

BUT NO, he feeds at the trough of public dollars, promoting imported students and denigrinating the "dumbass crackers" (his words) from America that manage to work their way into places like Georgia Tech.  And speaking of Hitler, Indian students LOVE HITLER.

FUCK YOU STEPHEN FLEMING.

Sorry for the outburst, but for this douche collaborator, there can only be four words:

THERE WILL BE RETRIBUTION

 


Well, in so many words...

Intel, IBM May Benefit From Green-Card Bill for Skilled Workers

Intel Corp. (INTC) and Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) may have help in their multiyear effort to bring more high-skill workers from overseas into the U.S. under a bill Representative Zoe Lofgren introduced today.

Lofgren, a Democrat from California, introduced a bill that would provide green cards, or permanent residence, to more foreign students who earn at least a master’s degree in science or engineering at U.S. universities. It also gives green cards to foreign entrepreneurs who start companies employing five or more U.S. citizens.

Technology companies, from Intel and Microsoft to International Business Machines Corp. (IBM), have backed efforts to make it easier for scientists and engineers from abroad to come to the U.S. Many scientists come to the U.S. for their post- graduate education and leave when they can’t get a visa to stay, said Peter Cleveland, Intel’s vice president of global public policy.

“We drop the ball when we let these individuals take this education elsewhere,” he said in a phone interview. “We should have them stay here and work for Apple, work for Facebook, work for Intel.”

Graduates with master’s degrees and higher in science, technology, engineering and math who get jobs related to their degrees would qualify for green cards under Lofgren’s bill. Entrepreneurs from abroad would get a temporary residence and could petition to stay permanently after two years if their businesses are still open and employing U.S. citizens.

Republican Co-Sponsor

Lofgren is looking for a Republican to co-sponsor the bill.

“I hope we will have Republican support,” she said in a phone interview today.

The bill is broader than past efforts, said Ron Hira, an associate professor of public policy at the Rochester Institute of Technology, citing other bills that haven’t been passed. In 2009, Representative Jeff Flake, a Republican from Arizona, introduced a bill that would have allowed in more foreign graduates with doctorate degrees. It never left the House Judiciary Committee.

“There’s a lot more master’s than Ph.Ds,” Hira said.

Current laws cap the number of employment-based green cards at 140,000 per year. Under the bill, the green cards for graduates and entrepreneurs wouldn’t count against the quotas.

 

Originally, I was tempted to post this and call it a night:

EMAIL Katie anytime, I hear that she is into "rough trade", and you won't be able to reach her by phone because she probably HAS MAYOR BLOOMBERG'S DICK IN HER MOUTH: khoffmann4@bloomberg.net.

Also for those insurgents with time on their hands, this is her boss: pelstrom@bloomberg.net

They are both collaborators sucking off Slumdog Slave Trader Michael Bloomberg, who seems to think WE NEED MORE FUCKING SLUMDOGS

Hey Katie, please stop sucking Mayor Bloomberg's dick, please?

But then I started doing some cyber-stalking of Katie Hoffman.

It really is sad to see such a pretty girl shilling for the Indian Outsourcing Regime.  I mean, her she is, all innocent and demure, supposedly "covering" technology for Bloomberg, not knowing that she is being used as a pawn for slumdog slave traders like her boss.  Shit, she looks like my daughter in 10 years.  They sent her out there and said "Here, babe, go write this propaganda piece fed to us by NASSCOM."  She probably has no clue about WHAT THE FUCK SHE IS WRITING ABOUT.  To throw the locals a bone, her boss Peter Elstrom says "BTW, go interview this Indian dude, Hira, give him 2 lines and Zoe Lofgren 100 lines, and then you won't look biased and get, uh, death threats, or nasty emails from those 'antis'."

What would you do if your daughter, say, started fucking the Nazis while you were a covert Jew running a little bakery in 1942 Paris?  Cheer her on? Say:  "Hey sweetie, go FUCK THE ENEMY!"

I don't think so.  

But then I saw Katie's cute fuckin' picture, and was tempted to superimpose the usual cross-hair on the .gif, and then thought otherwise.  Shit, this is AN AMERICAN WOMAN, MIND-RAPED BY THE COLLABORATORS.  She doesn't know any better!  She has been brainwashed into thinking that we need slumdogs, and her sponsors at INTEL and MICROSOFT basically SIGN HER FUCKING PAYCHECKS.

HOW DARE YOU, Peter Elstrom and Michael Bloomberg?  How dare you rape the ethical soul of a young American writer like Katie Hoffman and turn her into a shill for your pro-Slumdog, anti-American techie agenda?

HAVE YOU NO FUCKING SHAME?

I was going over my blog referrers and I found this nugget from about a year ago:

Life in America - Indian Software Engineer Visits USA

This guy seems like a nice Indian.  For one, he can write English above a 3rd grade level.  One of the reasons we Americans hate slumdogs is that their communication skills absolutely suck, and they don't seem to be trying to improve them.  They refuse to use punctuation, and even verbally they speak too fast for their meager capabilities.

Secondly, this guy came for two years, worked, and got the fuck out of America.  I think that was the goal of the H-1B program -- to fill short term labor shortages in skilled sectors.  As opposed to showing up in the USA after a 3-week crash course in programming, doing 6-months of "knowledge transfer" from an American, getting a collaborator American I.T. manager to purge all the locals, and then spending their work days flooding the boards of Dice.com, Immigration Voice, and trackitt, bitching about how you can't get a green card, boasting in Hinglish about how great Indians are and how dumb Americans are, and sending death threats to American citizens. 

This guy makes some good points, stuff that I have been talking about for quite awhile:

3.Desi's hate Desi's: Do you believe this !!
Contrary to my initial belief, I was surprised to find this out that unknown Indians do not like each other too much, I had actually thought that Indian people would like each other more in a foreign country. Let me clarify, people who you know well are not jealous of you, you still share a good relationship with them, but if you go in shopping malls, library or grocery stores, there will be Caucasians (white or gora people) who will say "Hi!" to you, but when you cross an unknown desi, they will 99% times ignore you. They will not mind to say "Hi!" to other white guys but just not Indians (Why ??). Indian software Engineers hate working under Indian Managers because most Indian managers try to assign more work to their Indian counterparts then others. When interviewing a candidate for a job, Indians will ask the most difficult questions to fellow desi's than they would ask to people from other communities. the only time I had a more friendlier experience was when I went to an Indian community mela / function.

Actually, I think Indians first instinct is to hate anyone that is not in their immediate family, and then anyone that is not in their caste, and then anyone who is not in the same tribe.  Pretty good at hating, those Indians.

6. Racism.. Not Much:
Racism in America is quite low especially when compared to UK, there are people who you may find a bit racist but their percentage is quite low. They certainly do not like the idea of people on H1 and L1 visa's as most consider that those visa's are taking their jobs away. Similarly, American's are also not too happy when they are transferred to Call Centers in India because many representatives have a strong Indian accent.

Hating slumdogs is not racist -- it is an American obligation and demonstrates patriotism, good business sense, and is an appropriate career move, in light of the current invasion we are facing.

8. Exaggerated Resume:
Many software engineers who were especially working for Desi consulting companies and were new to US, are often told to exaggerate things in their resume. Some go even to an extent of showing false US work experience, but this practice seems to be slowing down a lot.

NO SHIT, SHERLOCK

10. American workers value life outside work:
It was not uncommon for an American colleagues to take a day off because they had to take their dog for a medical checkup or is their child had a soccer match. If an American person is told to work on a weekend, he does not appreciate it very much. Most people are quite sincere during their 8 hours of work.

It is tragic that we have to make this clear to our collaborator I.T. execs and the Indian invaders.  But this is a good point to make in the online forums -- working with Indians sucks because they have nothing else to do.  They live out of a suitcase in a motel, for Christ's sake.  What else are they going to do except work?  And then when you head home after a 10 hour day, they are still there, working, and the collaborator cunt project manager that hired the slumdogs gives you the stink-eye.  WTF?


12. Lonely Desi Bachelors:
It is not easy to make a white American girl friend and there is a great scarcity of desi bachelor girls. You can have a better flirt/love life in India than in United States. I did go to some disc clubs many times but was no match in front of tall and muscular American males. Although some lucky desi's are successful in making Indian or American girl friends. Some Indian guys go to strip clubs to see topless women dancing on poles and very few go after illegal prostitutes.

Yup, they are pretty much like Nazis in Paris.  Bored, lonely, horny, reading Mein Kampf, and trying to seduce American teenage girls online.  Thanks for flooding the country with predators, Mr./Ms. H-1B pimp.

Computer geeks at Future Technology Associates earn more than Joel Klein does

 

Taxpayers shelled out an average of $250,000 last year for each of 63 computer consultants a little-known Florida-based firm supplied to the Department of Education.

That's more than $15.7 million of our money going to Future Technology Associates, which landed a DOE contract in 2005 - the same year the company was founded. The company's job is to integrate the school system's financial accounting system with other city agencies.

That contract began at $2.5 million a year. Since then, it has been repeatedly extended - mushrooming to $15.7 million in fiscal year 2009.

As a result, the average pay for each of the FTA employees is equal to that of Schools Chancellor Joel Klein, the city's highest-paid executive.

Several company employees received considerably more than Klein, DOE records show.

FTA director Tamer Sevintuna, for example, snared $348,000 as senior manager for the project. His second-in-command, Jonathan Krohe, logged in at $345,000. Senior consultant Sesha Narayanasamy received $276,000.

Those costs also include what the company pays for its employee health and fringe benefits.

As the Daily News reported last week, the company appears to have no other business aside from its DOE contract. Its only official addresses - in Jacksonville, Fla., and on Schermerhorn St. in Brooklyn - are just mail drops.

Most of its employees work full-time at the DOE's computer center in downtown Brooklyn. As many as a dozen are working with H1B non-immigrant visas for foreigners with special skills [aka booger-farming and chair-warming].

FTA chief Sevintuna refused to talk to The News last week about his firm. He referred all questions to the DOE.



Yeah, of course Sevintuna "referred all questions to the DOE" because he is a slumdog pimp. As for the COLLABORATOR CUNT that hired FTA, her days are numbered. She will soon find herself amongst the other traitors that contracted with Desi pimps and Slumdog Slave Traders, blacklisted and looking over her shoulder as she waits for the subway in New York.

"Their rates are better than competitive," said Photeine Anagnostopoulos, the DOE's chief operating officer.


There will be retribution for vile scum like you, Photeine.

"We know it [FTA] is competitive because we know what the rates are," Anagnostopoulos said. In corporate America, a quarter million a year for a computer consultant is normal, she said.


Too bad that the slumdogs are NOT getting a "quarter million a year", you stupid fuckin' whore.

Data from www.endh1b.com shows that "Future Technology Associates, LLC" shipped in a dozen slumdogs in 2008. These are the scabs that "worked" for New York. Supposedly, they were paid about 65k/yr, which ain't shit in NYC. That means that they were NOT PAID THE PREVAILING WAGE:




The beauty of the internet is that you can track these slumdogs down:

Now, get busy, Insurgents. Aim for the red dot [on Google Maps, that is].

THERE WILL BE RETRIBUTION
