Given that this 2015 is a Rugby Union World Cup year,
Given that Michael Cheika coached the NSW Waratahs to their first (?) Super Rugby championship win in 2014,
Given that Michael Cheika is now also coaching the Australian Wallabies,

I present the ARU dream extension

The implication behind the article is that the various governments that are "owed" this tax would do a better way of spending it. That is questionable, at best.

Mastery and mentoring by +Dennis Howlett ->I really enjoyed this article especially when Picasso says “No, Madam, you are incorrect – it did not take me 90 seconds at all; it took me my whole life to know how to do that.”

#SAP  consulting is stuck in the stone ages with the time and material model which I have lived for the last 14 years.  The dirty little secret for senior consultants is SAP gets easier and easier over time as 90% of the work is the same at every client. If there is something very complex that I have solved at another customer that takes me an hour to do at a new customer they just assume it was easy and simple (which I guess it is if you know how to do it) but it is something that I struggled with earlier in my consulting career as I wanted "credit" for knowing how to solve complex issues (which is crazy as I was being hired because I should know these things).  I see ridiculous estimates all the time for 20-50X in many cases the actual work effort so it is definitely a problem under the current industry model.

A great example is a customer asked me to provide them a list of all the SAP HCM reports (standard, BI/BO) and I had recently done it for another client so I sent it 10 mins later but had I billed for that one piece of work it would have been 10mins but it was "worth" quite a bit more.
