Thanks Ethoash -
I agree we can all be innovative as well; at the level of Prof. Gebisa Ejeta and others like him, guessing "Defend" had those people in mind, we can't pay them enough or as you pointed out, can't stop them from going abroad. In the first place, they're driven on their own and may even bring their own research funding as Prof. Gebisa does, to do research back home. BTW, that young man Defend talked about has a plan of coming back already if one listened to his interview.
As far as you trashing "parking lot guys", please continue to do that; for some I know, with Masters Degree [maybe from Russia! so what?] under their belt, done "parking" for decades. What is up with that?
So, no one with a high aspiration gets offended by your jab; many probably need that as a push!
Don't take me wrong; the "99,000" taxi drivers, parking attendants data you made up, cracked me up as usual; in fact, that is why I responded to this post. I like Defend but, I pick posts if I see your name on it; because you always come up with out the box ideas. Keep doing that please!
So, in fact it is good you're challenging folks to do something better Or not to go below their size; it is cool with me; I do mean it from the bottom of my heart!
Actually my bus driver friend was burnt out as a science research worker; he wasn't driven in the science to find some thing new anyway; only making a living doing it as a job. That bus driving job, not only paid more when he started, I didn't tell you that, he is now a bus base chief making 6 figures income. He is a good people's person, the bus driving has turned into a career for him now.
PS> I have yet to see the first video you posted; I have seen the others. Prof. Ejeta is a tower of a man in that picture; isn't he?
i always enjoy reading your comment in sea of hate...
now watch this Dr. he did reaserch on ማሽላ and found improved ማሽላ seed.. and this improved seed can produce more and improved the poor farmer life.. the question is is Dr. Laureate: Gebisa Ejeta Brain-Drain or Brain gain .. yes he was Brain-Drain when he was studying in USA AND WORK in Sudan but when time is right he come back home and serving mama Ethiopia all we need is one this kind of people out of 100,000
i was always joking about those taxi driver and parking lot lord .. they r funny to me they mock PMHD job while they driving taxi or working as doorman at the hotel... that is the reason i am mocking them otherwise it is not a sin to be taxi driver the only thing is instead of wasting their time they could have pool their money and invest in Ethiopia by now they would have been very rich if they had invested their money.. think about in Dc alone there are 20,000 taxi driver if each of them pool 1000 dollar that would be 20 million dollar 30 years ago by now they would have worth 200 million if not billion of dollar .... what stop them is they dont trust each other and they drinking like there is no tomorrow not being rich WHILE SETTING In USA IS A CRIME ...
