What can an out-of-shape man in his 50’s teach fit professional athletes in their 20’s? Personal training is for amateurs, not the experienced, right? You don’t need personal training – you’ve been doing your stuff for years, right? In the tracks, veterans who ignore coaches hardly make it.
No one fires an employee with exceptional performance. The primary reason people lose jobs is non-performance. Second on line is arrogance. At times employers will fire a high-performing individual who is not a team player.
Since being fired on non-performance is embarrassing, many job losers create juicy stories like...
“My boss wanted to sleep with me (go tell it to the birds). My boss is malicious. My boss is insecure with me. He wants to employ his relatives. Promotion here depends on who you know. I wasn’t fired - I’ve just found my purpose in life – I now want to start my own business.”
The TWAS Awards (previouly called ‘TWAS Prizes’) are awarded to individual scientists from developing countries in recognition of an outstanding contribution to scientific knowledge in nine fields of sciences and/or to the application of science and technology to sustainable development. To abide by the decision of the TWAS Council taken in November 2018, the cycle of the TWAS Awards will beevery two years. Additionally, during the TWAS Council meeting held in Hangzhou, China, on 11 November 2019, the request by UNESCO to change the term ‘prize’ to ‘award’ for all existing and new TWAS distinctions other than medals was approved and therefore this award scheme is now called ‘TWAS Awards’.
