Australians are better than Pakistanis not only in
the leg breaks business, but also in number of other ways. The first
thing any Australian would like to do in the morning is to head for
nearest swimming pool. Here this would be the last thing one could
afford to do.
If you ask any sales girl in Australia to show you
some local made clothes, the only reaction you would get is laughter,
because they prefer cheap wears made in China.
If you are staying in any Australian hotel, you can
become popular by talking cricket..
Interestingly number of Australian nuclear scientists
believe in the same way as Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan do, that it is more
environment friendly to have a nuclear power plants than fossil based
According to Australian Nuclear Science and
Technology Organisation, the concerns that human activities are
contributing to global climate change and that increasing concentrations
of greenhouses gases in the atmosphere, especially carbon dioxide, are
significant contributing factors, have focused global attention on how
carbon dioxide levels might be firstly stabilised and then reduced. The
combustion of fossil fuels for electricity provides significant inputs
of carbon dioxide and other pollutants into the atmosphere, and with
predictions that world demand for electricity may double in the next 25
years particular emphasis is being directed to the introduction of less
polluting means of electricity generation, like Nuclear Energy.
*Some now view nuclear power as an effective means of
electricity generation which will not contribute to global carbon
dioxide levels, and thereby offer an alternative to the use of fossil
fuels. Some are predicting that nuclear reactors will not only produce
electricity but be the source of hydrogen required to fuel the next
generation of cars and other forms of transport. There have been
predictions that, by 2050, one third of primary energy could be derived
from nuclear power. Against these scenarios, others argue that it is
irresponsible to extend the nuclear industry because they consider that
the problem of waste disposal has not been resolved.
Pakistan Standard & Quality Control Authority
called PSQCA can learn a lot from Standard Australia.
Standards Australia is among the world's leading
national standards organizations, and the fact that Australian business
uses more Standards per capita than any other nation on earth
demonstrates the confidence it has, not just in the Standards
themselves, but in the skills and expertise of Standards Australia. The
reason for this is that ASO is using knowledge-based services to improve
organizational intelligence and efficiency, and enhance competitive
advantage. They have established Performance measurement standards for
themselves, they believe in 100% conformity to those predetermined
standards for themselves. So PSQCA should develop performance
measurement standards for themselves.
So the foremost thing that requires attention of
PSQCA is preparing the home industry for the 2005, when quota
restrictions would no longer prevail and anybody can buy from anyone in
the world. So PSQCA should set clear strategies for achieving these
objectives. They should measure their performance to evaluate whether
they are moving towards their target or not.
Australian Standards is using the new technology for
the 21st century to achieve its mission. Standards Australia have
pioneered the innovative use of the latest IT and communications
technology. Unlike PSCQA Standards Australia is an independent company,
not directly associated with government,
Another thing that makes Australian standards one of
the most advanced standards development authority is their Research and
information Services. They believe in
"In itself, a collection of Standards is of
little value. You need to know about them; you need to understand their
purpose and the relationships between them; and you need to get best
possible value from them to generate business advantage."
Pakistan has set an Export target of Rs.10.4 billion
in the new trade policy. This can only be achieved if the quality of
products is improved by complying to international standards. PSCQA can
play the lead role in this. Today products are being sold globally and
technology has made very easy. You can access any information from
anywhere. Technology has created a virtual market in which products
compete based on quality and price. So there is a growing need to reduce
price and improve quality. Pakistani Exporters are under a grave threat
once the trade quotas are abolished in 2005. If proper planning and
strategy is not developed then it would lead to a situation where
Pakistani products would not be able to compete in the international

An accountant visited the Natural History museum.
While standing near the dinosaur he said to his neighbour: "This
dinosaur is two billion years and ten months old".
"I was here ten months ago, and the guide told
me that the dinosaur is two billion years old."
Two accountants are in a bank, when armed robbers
burst in. While several of the robbers take the money from the tellers,
others line the customers, including the accountants, up against a wall,
and proceed to take their wallets, watches, etc. While this is going on
accountant number one jams something in accountant number two's hand.
Without looking down, accountant number two whispers, "What is

Why do accountants make good lovers? They're great
A 54-year-old accountant leaves a letter for his wife
one evening which read: "Dear Wife, I am 54 years old, and by the
time you get this letter I will be at the Grand Hotel with my beautiful
and sexy eighteen year old secretary."
When he arrived at the hotel, there was a letter
waiting for him that read as follows: "Dear Husband, I too am 54
years old, and by the time you receive this letter I will be at the
Savoy Hotel with my eighteen year old toy boy. Because you are an
accountant, you will surely appreciate that l8 goes into 54 many more
times than 54 goes into 18."
