Who needs a human bodyguard when you can just get a robot? Below is a video purportedly featuring Bahrain’s King, Hamad bin Isa bin Salman al-Khalifa, and his ‘robot bodyguard.’ The eight-foot robot bodyguard known as Titan was first featured last year at Dubai International Exhibition & Convention Center.

Update: Unfortunately, as much as everyone would love the video to be true, it turns out the King of Bahrain does not have a robot bodyguard. A closer look at the video shows that the Emir of Bahrain was not featured, and the ‘robot’ in question is actually a person dressed up.

Meanwhile, Titan is really cool robot. It speaks six languages and can sing and dance and entertain its audience. It carries medications and water. Titan can also rescue the king literally carry him from mobs and can also physically fight, chase, shoot. Titan is not cheap. Titan comes at a price tag of  $7.4 million.

Below is a video of Titan in action.

Below is another video of Titan at the Bett Exhibition 2020.

Xero Degrees (1) is now an established brand that was founded by Kashish Aneja and his friend, Shivam Kakkar. Kashish Aneja studied marketing and finance after completing his schooling. He is a postgraduate in marketing. After having done his higher studies, he took a job in the finance department. While growing up, cooking was his hobby. There was always something about preparing food that he was tempted by. Soon enough, he realized that he would fit perfectly in a food-related setup. Thereby, within two months, he decided to become a food entrepreneur. He was so passionate about food that he opened a cute little café in Connaught Place by the name Xero Degrees.

“There were times when I used to distribute pamphlets in Connaught Place,”

says Kashish Aneja.

Since Kashish had a lot of knowledge about finance and marketing strategies, he applied all his knowledge to open a fully-fledged food chain with a lot of outlets. He set up a team of people from different departments like marketing, human resources, accounts, and the list goes on. Kashish himself is well versed with all the skills which have turned Xero Degrees into a successful venture. He has his hands-on cooking and is trained in numerous areas involving food and beverages.

He currently has his stores set up at three locations in Delhi, one at Gurugram, Chandigarh, Amritsar, and Patiala. His entire team is working towards the goal of opening fifty more stores across India as well as internationally by the year 2021.

To date, Kashish himself manages all the designing parts, interiors of the outlets, and also the food menu up-gradation from time to time.  

We Serve Everything In A Jar

“I get around four to five queries each day about Xero Degrees which makes my day fulfilling,”

tells Kashish Aneja.

Xero DegreesXero Degrees has an unusual concept of serving food. The present every food item in takeaway jars. Be it pizza, cheesy fries or shakes, anything, and everything is served in jars. They have kept an American cuisine which is liked by all. We all have usually come across the basic circular pizzas, Xero Degrees, however, serve it in a heart shape. The little things like these make the customer feel surprised and bring a smile to their face. This is what the owner of Xero Degrees; Kashish Aneja looks forward to each day. They also have burgers of three different colors which too is a unique concept and is extraordinary. Not only is the food up to date but also the beverages. They prepare their coffee with the utmost delicacy. Expresso, Americano, Macchiato, Cappuccino, you’ll find and love them all.

“We are coming up with a new menu real soon with mouth-watering dishes.”

Kashish says that the upgraded menu will have a brand new concept called “double zero” which would have two drinks in one container. They will also be adding the main course to their menu like rice bowls and a lot more. He and the entire team are thrilled for the day when the exotic food items will be launched at every outlet.

The Unforgettable Experience

Kashish Aneja has been a food entrepreneur for the past two years now. He says the overall experience has been thrilling and exciting.

“We consider McD, KFC, Burger King as our models and we aspire to reach up to their level someday,”

says the proud owner.

He has the new upcoming stores at Jalandhar, Kolkata, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Dehradun, Noida, and two more outlets in Delhi itself. This is just the beginning and the bright future awaits Xero Degrees. Not just in India, they are also about to close deals in Brazil and Abudhabi.

A Sneak Peek Into The Patiala Outlet

“The store is owned by my wife Samriti Joshi, I just support her,” proudly says, Sandeep Joshi.

The Patiala outlet of Xero Degrees is owned by Samriti Joshi and her husband Sandeep Joshi. Sandeep Joshi has been working in the field of banking for the past twenty years. His wife, Samriti Joshi owned a primary school named “Mom’s Pride” located in Urban Estate, Patiala. Since the preschool demanded a lot of attention and care, they both decided to shift to something more productive. Their fifteen years old son insisted them to open up a food chain. Thus, they started their research to take a franchise of a reputed food joint. They traveled around in search of a deal that would suit them. After talking to a huge number of brands, they finally met Kashish Aneja, the owner of Xero Degrees.

They went to Delhi to gather some information about Xero Degrees as they found their concept and ideas really unique and innovative.

“We never got to meet the owner of any franchise we were interested in, but Kashish met us personally. He welcomed us warmly and we had a long fruitful discussion,” happily exclaims the couple.

Kashish made them feel so comfortable which inclined them to take up the franchise Xero Degrees even more.

A Happiness Filled Start

Xero Degrees

The couple says that they were highly impressed with the quality as well as the presentation of the food. They had never seen such beautifully presented food even in Mumbai. Thus, they finalized their deal in October 2019. They then designed the interior with a hint of sophistication and subtleness. After bringing up a team of highly trained and qualified staff, they opened up the store on the 25th of December, 2019. Unlike the usual food joints, Kashish sent a team of his professionals to train the staff members of the Patiala outlet. There are no restrictions on where to buy the raw materials from, etc which gives them the liberty to choose the best for their store.

“I have never seen a brand grow to this extent in just a span of three years,”

says Sandeep Joshi.

To their utter surprise, just in the first week, the sales went up to twenty thousand rupees. Although they faced a dip during the lockdown but now when everything is picking up the pace, their store has customers coming up and returning with happy faces and filled stomachs. The Freak Shakes are the most famous here. They are served in longed jars with a divine presentation.

The couple aspires to open up the basement of the store shortly. The seating arrangement needs an extension because of the encounters with familiar faces. Then Xero Degrees at Patiala would also book the basement for any private birthday parties or ceremonies.

The Journey Is And Continues To Be A Bliss

We are more than satisfied after choosing Xero Degrees. The owner is so humble and flexible. Every month one of their team members comes to the place to keep a check on their outlet. Usually, whenever an owner visits their food outlet, they book some hotels to discuss the happenings. Kashish Aneja, on the other hand, comes directly to the outlet, goes into the kitchen, and asks Sandeep Joshi what he wants to eat and he would prepare it for him. They are so glad that they chose Xero Degrees and nothing else.

They deliver their freshly prepared food on the outskirts of Patiala as well. Orders from the adjacent locations like Nabha, Samana have also been delivered which makes them feel worthy of what they are doing. Their overall experience with Xero Degrees has been fabulous. Not only the owners and the team are friendly but also the quality of the food served is ultimate. The unique combinations of food are lip-smacking. The feedback has also been so heartwarming and this venture has added happiness to their lives. 

Garima is the proud author of “Color Outside the Lines – Let’s double tap our imperfections”. As much as she loves stationery, her poetry written in cute spiral notebooks does justice to them. She works dedicatedly towards eliminating the stigma attached to mental health adding the meaning to her existence.

When you dream about working at Google, your inner self tells you how unique perks Google provided you while working like unlimited free food, slides, nap pods, massage room, and what not else?

Who would not like to work with all these perks? So, in this article, I’m going to share all the tips, strategies, and techniques you can apply to get a job on Google.

You must be wondering by now how difficult it is to get a job at Google? Let’s get a reality check first and then proceed further.

Is it difficult to bag a job at Google?

Google is not a static organization. By static here, I mean, it is growing vastly. It is a big company with lots of momentum.

It is easier to get a job at Google than you think. Google constantly hires people. They often visit college campuses to hire young and fresh talent for their organization. If you get a chance to sit in their interview and you somehow manage to dodge all those questions being bombed at you one by one, with ease, you’re likely to be offered a job.

What makes it hard for some people is that they don’t meet the requirements and don’t understand it. For better or worse, Google has a type. It is hard to get through their interview process if you don’t meet that type. Google’s process produces few false positives. The downside is that it probably increases false negatives.

The best way to describe the type is “generalist.” Software engineers are typically not hired for a specific position. They are interviewed for an absolute breadth of know, edge, and ability to solve the problems. They type selects for the more systems-oriented people. 

Often, candidates are rejected because they are not ready to work at Google yet. That mainly happens because of a lack of proper knowledge. You have to match your skills with the company’s expectations to secure a position. So now, let us know about the skills and experiences you should possess to work at Google.

Note: You might want to read an article written by me on how to write a resume. Read it here: https://timesnext.com/how-to-write-a-resume-6-things-you-should-know/.

What Google seeks for in an employee? (My Take)

Nowadays, Google receives 2 million job applications in a year and accepts only 4000 of them. This makes this acceptance rate even lower than that of Havard or Yale. 

So here’s a list of skills you should have for getting accepted from Google according to me:

  • Googlyness: Yes, you heard it right. In Google’s workbook, there’s a quality mentioned as Googlyness. It is defined as attributes like enjoying fun, intelligence, strong measures of conscientiousness, comfort with ambiguity, and courage. This thing togetherly defines Googlyness.
  • Role-related knowledge: One must have a safe and sound understanding of the job they’re working for. People become knowledgeable in certain specific situations and apply the knowledge to solve some other area’s problem. Of course, Google doesn’t want that. So one should have an overall understanding of the jobs instead of being specialized in a specific area.
  • Leadership: One should have leadership quality such that when the other person is facing any difficulty, help them, not like overruling anyone. 
  • Cognitive ability: Nobody has full knowledge of anything in the world. Google wants to hire such candidates who are bright and are still exploring and curious about everything. They recruit for aptitude, for the ability to learn new things.
  • Diversity: Google often asks people to bring something new and diverse in terms of their life experiences.
  • Handling difficulty: Google interview includes questions like ” give me an example of a time when you solved an analytically difficult problem.” 
  • Meeting high standards: Often, Google’s employees meet high standard people and problems because it is such a big firm.

Now that you’re clear with all the skills, I want to tell you good news. Google doesn’t care about GPA! Yes!

Low GPA? No problem. Follow these tips to get a job at Google with a low GPA.

Mr. Bock (helped Google to grow from 3000 employees to 53,00 employees) says GPA and test scores don’t correlate with success at the company. 

He quotes, 

“Academic environments are artificial environments. People who succeed there are sort of finely trained; they’re conditioned to succeed in that environment.”

GPAs are still asked for the hiring process.

Here are some tips to get a job at Google with a low GPA:

  • Get a professional experience.
  • Have relevant coding skills.
  • Don’t apply externally. Focus on on-campus placements and referrals.
  • Reach out to Google recruiter.
  • If your GPA is too low, don’t bother to write it on your resume.
  • Make your resume polished with other extra-curricular activities.
  • Showcase your engineering skills.
  • Have a track record of open source projects.
  • Showcase your passion for company and technology.
  • Mention how you can help the company.

Note: You might want to read an article written by me on how to write an email for a job. Read it here: https://timesnext.com/how-to-write-an-email-for-a-job-6-things-you-should-know/.

Types of jobs under Google:

Google offers jobs in the following three main categories mainly:

A. Engineering: Technical roles like software engineer, STA engineer, application development and product management, etc.

B. Business: These include quantitative business analysis, business operations, sales strategy, etc.

C. Design: Roles like UI/UX designer, UX writer, visual designer, UX researcher, etc.

If you’re qualified in any of fields mentioned above, then proceed ahead to the application tips at Google:

1. Talk to a Google recruiter: 

Google organizes outreach events at hundreds of universities worldwide to spread the word about their internships and other recent graduates’ opportunities. 

Google has mentioned on its website that “check with your university’s career’s center to see if a Google representative will be visiting your campus. And though we can’t visit every school and university, you can find and apply for all our open roles on our student’s site.”

You can also impress Google recruiters by asking them some out-of-the-box questions. You can thus, share your knowledge and skills with them and define your capabilities according to the job role you’re offered with.

2. Apply online: 

You can directly apply to Google by their website. Simply enter your preferences, location, and skills relevant to the job you’re aiming for. Google will filter jobs according to your selections.

You can directly apply via this link: https://careers.google.com/jobs/.

You also use online job searching sites like KillerLaunch.com.

Killerlaunch is a perfect platform where you can find several jobs that are just one click away! Just add your preferences and qualifications and get ready for your dream job. So visit KillerLaunch.com now!

3. Campus placements: 

Google visits India’s top colleges like IITs, NITs, DTU, etc. for hiring the students matching their criteria.

4. APAC Tests: 

Google organizes Kick Start, a coding contest for programmers in the Asia-Pacific region. It is held throughout the year. Interested people can enter any 3 hours round they wish to. 

If you’re able to impress them with your skills, congrats, you may get a chance to be interviewed by Google!

Now that you’re done with the application process, it’s time for an interview.

After you’ve applied, it takes 6 weeks to go through the entire process. Recruiters focus more on the candidate than on the process, so make sure to impress them thoroughly.

Google conducts two types of interviews:

  • Telephonic/Hangout interview: If the recruiter is impressed by your application, they will interview you via hangout or phone call. If you’ve applied for technical roles, they may ask you many coding and algorithm questions. So prepare accordingly.
  • On-site interviews: After the first round of interview is done, they will call you for a face to face interview. It may last up to 30-45 minutes. Google will cover all your transport and accommodation costs. And don’t forget to impress the recruiters with your “Googlyness”! 

Here is the list of questions that the interviewer might ask you:

  • Why do you want to work with our company?
  • Explain how you’re good at this role?
  • Describe yourself.
  • What is your most significant achievement to date?
  • Tell us how you handle feedback?
  • What is your favorite Google product, and can you modify it?
  • How can you increase Google revenues?
  • How can you launch a local product? How can you check for fraud?

Now that you’ve aced the interview, it’s time for the real deal, salary negotiation.

Salary negotiation for Google job.

It’s worthwhile to negotiate any payroll from Google. Why? As wage negotiation coach Josh Doddy writes, “offers from Google can be improved anywhere from somehow or more.” 

Of course, some positions may be more effective in negotiating offers with Google. For example, Doddy says that data scientists and machine learning experts, who helped Google dominate its industry, can maximize software developers’ initial offerings.

Doddy also says, “if no sign-up bonus is included with your first offer, there may be still one available. Login bonuses, such as equity, can range from fairly small amounts to six figures.”

What should you expect from a Google job?

For the past 10 years, Google has reached the top 100 of the best companies to work for, as only three companies have done so. Google has four offices throughout India – Gurgaon, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Bangalore, each showing Google’s diversity differently. Google has some of the best benefits for employees globally, with the least amount of free food at any time of the day, entertainment rooms (including video games, bedrooms, house games, etc.) finance.

‘Good enough is not good enough’ is one of Google’s fundamental values ​​, and Google needs to think critically. They are always trying new ideas and challenging themselves to come up with something new. Google has a ‘Googler-to-Googler’ program where employees interact and train each other in skills such as management, public speaking, etc. Another reason why Google is one of the best places to work its policy is flexible working hours. There is no set program, and employees are encouraged to use within their terms. This gives Google the freedom to think creatively as much as possible, without being caught up in tight work hours.

So, getting a job at Google is easy if the right approach is taken. You can ace the interview with the tips and techniques I’ve mentioned above. Good luck! Show off your Googlyness!

The China State Administration for Market Regulation announced that Tesla is recalling nearly 50,000 of its Model S and Model X electric vehicles. The two models, which were made in the U.S. and sold to customers in China, are been recalled over potentially faulty and unsafe front and rear suspensions. As of April 2018, Tesla has had six recalls for the Model S.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) did not comment if is a similar recall in the U.S. may be necessary. According to China’s auto industry news site, Gasgoo, the recall affects 29,193 imported Model Ss and Model Xs, produced between Sept. 17, 2013, and Aug. 16, 2017, and 19,249 imported Model Ss produced between Sept. 17, 2013, and Oct. 15, 2018. The cars were produced at Tesla’s Fremont, California, vehicle assembly plant.

The China State Administration for Market Regulation has also ordered the electric car giant to replace the rear linkages of their left and the right front suspension and the upper linkages of the left and right rear suspension with an improved one for all the cars that are part of the recall at no cost to the owners.

To address the safety risks, Tesla said it will replace the rear linkages of the left & right front suspension of the upper linkages of the left & right rear suspension with the improved parts for the vehicles recalled. The replacement will be made for free.

The Tesla Model S is an all-electric five-door liftback sedan produced by Tesla, Inc., and was introduced on June 22, 2012. As of this year, the Model S Long Range Plus has an EPA range of 402 miles, higher than that of any other battery-electric car.
