Bush's new immigration plan?

<t>Quote'm not sure where you got that from. In fact, it takes a few months.???!!!! You are very far from real picture - believe me. My HR just started this process for me. First stage - labor sertification is about 3 years. And 2 years second and third stage. Even coming via extraordinary ability w...

Bush's new immigration plan?

<t>QuoteThese are the Falashas, they have been linked to the story of the ark of the covenant. They are the oldest Jews with the oldest traditions. Israel has been bringing them on its soil. No, I didnot mean falashas, they are already absorbed by Israel, and their number is much much smaller. There...

Noisy Matrix and it's Rank

I agree with you, Nonious, I just noticed that spec does not give in general the picture of a matrix's rank in a case of defficient rank.But this is far from the topic....

Bush's new immigration plan?

Somebody knows how to get relaitvely fast Mexican citizienship? It seems me that today under condition that Bush's paln will become a law - it would be easier to get GC via nonillegal immigration from Mexic than via labor sertification. Today it takes in average about 5 years....

Noisy Matrix and it's Rank

<t>As I understand, Nonious meant continuity with respect to perturbations...Spec itself can be arbitrary. Notice only (you probably know this) that number of not zero eigevalues do not give you the rank of matrix in general. matrix 0 01 0has 2 zero eighen values and rank 1.The rank of matrix comple...

What is the "Market Price of Risk"?

<t>QuoteOriginally posted by: maclachlHi,I am interested in pricing an asset that depends upon 2 underlying non-traded assets. Should the prices of risk for the 2 underlying factors be made linearly dependent? For example, in equilibrium the price of risk scaled by asset vols should be equal across ...

Noisy Matrix and it's Rank

<r><URL url="http://mathworld.wolfram.com/StochasticMatrix.html">http://mathworld.wolfram.com/StochasticMatrix.html</URL> My remark about these matrices was only to note that general result might not be true for specific class of matrixes, since perturbations are not independent here. Of course, for...

Noisy Matrix and it's Rank

<t>Yep, closed enough. Take a sample of iid numbers. Construct a matrix. Defficient rank means that 1 column (row) is a linear combination of others. If it happens with probability > 0 we have dependence of independent elemets of the matrix. About Nonious - I don't think that the boorishness should ...

<t>Quotewhy am I bothering, ok...what are you talking about by saying bla bla bla about stochastic matrices...it is nonsense...pure white noise, no pun intended.

Work Permits for NY: How Difficult?

<t>QuoteSo presumably in that situation visas (visae?) are not at all a concern in the hiring process. Good newsNo, withno work permit the market is much smaller. There are companies that don't worry about this and there are companies where HR somehow refuses H1. 1 more issue that you cannot start t...
