The ICAI said the move is to do away with stages of physical handling of answer books.
After 'certain adverse reports' relating to the system of evaluation of answer books of CA exams started doing the rounds in social media, the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India or ICAI, the national body which regulates Chartered Accountants (CA)' profession in the country, released clarification regarding the reforms which have been put in place recently in organisation of the exams. The ICAI said all papers of CA Intermediate and Foundation level exams to be held in November 2019 and May 2020 will be put through the digital evaluation mode. The ICAI asked students "to be not to be misled and swayed by any tirade as ICAI stands committed to fulfil their genuine concerns".
The Institute said the move is to do away with stages of physical handling of answer books and avoiding variations in marks awarded by examiners.
It also said digital evaluation will eliminate scope of any totalling errors and help in continuous review of performance of the examiners on real time basis and also generate analytical reports enabling quality control checks.
This in continuation further from the pilot e-evaluation for first group of Intermediate exams held in November 2018, the agency said.
"Central Evaluation is being carried out in several papers of CA exams, w.e.f November 2018 wherein examiners evaluate answer books under the supervision of Head Examiner/Associate Head Examiners," the ICAI said.
"Effective May, 2019 exams, objective type questions for 30 marks have been introduced in select papers of Intermediate and Final Exams. Further the Institute has decided to introduce OMR based evaluation for MCQ's of Elective Papers 6A to 6F of final New course with effect from November 2019 which are machine processed thus avoiding subjectivity," the organisation added.
Provision regarding stepwise marking is being enforced whereby in case the stepwise marks are not awarded and it will be deemed as unevaluated answer and stepwise marks will be awarded during the course of re verification of marks, according to the ICAI.
"All applicants shortlisted for empanelment as examiners are required to qualify an online test in the subject of their choice before inclusion of their names in the Panel of Examiners. It has further been decided that all existing examiners would also be required to undergo an on-line test in their respective subjects, once in 3 years," the clarification said.
"Various endeavours of the Institute through its Board of Studies like World class study material, Live Virtual /Revision Classes, training opportunities for article/industrial training, constant study updates, monthly student journal ,GMCS and ITT batches are targeted to build capability of students providing due scalability .Students are requested to be not to be misled and swayed by any tirade as ICAI stands committed to fulfil their genuine concerns," the ICAI said.

D. “You know, a thing about a shark, he’s got…lifeless eyes. Black eyes, like a doll’s eyes!”
Answer: “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.”
Bonus fact: First of all, the line was “You’re gonna need a bigger boat,” not “we’re,” as it’s often misquoted. The line wasn’t in the original script but was an inside joke among the Jaws crew, teasing the stingy producers for picking a support boat that was too small to hold the equipment. Actor Roy Scheider ad-libbed the line throughout filming, but the one kept in the final cut became one of the most remembered movie quotes of all time.

C. School Daze
D. Malcolm X
Answer: She’s Gotta Have It
Bonus fact: During one of Leonardo DiCaprio’s big scenes in Django Unchained, his racist rant is heightened when he slams down on a table and cuts his hand on a glass. It might look like special effects, but it wasn’t in the script. The actor really did hurt his hand without stopping the scene, and the blood you see is real.
Bonus fact: When the 1931 movie Dracula was being shot, it was common for foreign-language films to take over the set at night and shoot their own versions instead of dubbing over them later. The Spanish-language version—which used the same script and set—wrapped up in about half the time and earned way better reviews than its English-language counterpart.

Answer: Charleston, South Carolina
So, how many did you get right? If you want to keep the trivia train going, test your knowledge with this book trivia quiz.
Q. I have a 1998 Ford Crown Victoria that is losing coolant, I have checked the system for leaks and haven’t found any. Even after being parked for a few days there are no wet spots on the ground. The oil is clean with no signs of no moisture in it. I am adding about a quart of coolant a week, what is the issue.
A. The problem is most likely a leaking cylinder head gasket. The standard procedure is to pressure test the cooling system and if the system holds pressure, then the next step is to look for an internal leak. You can purchase a kit that uses a special chemical to look for exhaust gases in the cooling system. These kits are $35-$50 and are easy to use and quite accurate.
Q. My daughter has a 2007 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Lately the car has started to vibrate/slide as she brakes, as if the ABS system is engaging even though the road is clear and dry. The light with the squiggly lines will appear briefly. No other lights activate. Our mechanic has been able to experience the issue but has not been able to fix the issue. Any advice?
A. The anti-lock brake system uses sensors at each wheel that monitor wheel rotation. What you describe as a phantom ABS application can usually be traced to a rusted or cracked ABS tone wheel. A careful inspection and some testing should be able to pinpoint the problem.
Q. My Mazda 2014 CX-9 has about 55,000 miles on it. During a couple of four-hour drives on the highway I noticed a hum coming from the car. After some novice detective work figured it to be the right rear wheel bearing/hub was the problem. I removed the assembly and replaced it with a “sorry to say” economy brand part I purchased online. I road tested it and for about 300 miles of highway driving, no sounds. Unfortunately, after a few hundred more miles the same “hum” is back, although less intense. I did more internet research, and some comments were that this brand failed prematurely. And other sites mentioned a bit of a sophisticated install process. The replacement of this bearing hub is straightforward: remove defective part and install replacement. Four bolts hold the assembly to the rear axle assembly, and you just remove and reinstall the axel nut. Mixed recommendations on the torque specs for the axel nut: 200ftlbs/258ftlbs. Do you think I just got a lemon part? Did I install it incorrectly? Not like the old days when you’d repack the wheel bearings and “set” them with rotating the wheel and tightening and backing off the holding nut.
A. I suspect you may have gotten an inferior part. You are correct the replacement of the bearing is fairly simple. According to AllData the technical database I use, the attachment bolts should be tightened to 58–75-foot pounds and the axle nut is tightened to 175-202 foot pounds of torque.
Q. I have three simple questions that I can’t get an answer for so I’m coming to you. What window wash fluid do you recommend, especially in the cold Northeast states, are there any window treatment products do you recommend that shed water or prevent fogging and are gas additives worth the money? My car is a 2015 Kia Soul, but I’m sure the advice applies to most cars.
A. When choosing windshield washer fluid (which is basically soap, water and alcohol) look for fluid that will protect against freezing to at least 20 degrees below zero. Some fluids will have additives that do a better job of removing bugs and other debris and some will bead water. What ever fluid you choose, the best results come from a clean windshield. Clean the windshield inside and out with a good quality window cleaner and then go over the windshield with a clean microfiber cloth. Regarding window treatments, I have tried some and had mixed results, so I tend to stay away from them. If you are trying to prevent fogging, first make sure your defroster is set to fresh air. Fogging happens when there is a temperature differential of the inside and outside of the windshield. A DIY method to prevent fogging is to clean the window with shaving foam. I haven’t tried it on my car but it works on my bathroom mirror. Regarding fuel additives, adding a fuel injector cleaner periodically and using a gas line antifreeze just before cold winter temperatures can’t hurt, although typically not necessary if you use quality fuel and keep the fuel tak at least half full to prevent moisture.
Q. My 2008 Suzuki XL7, runs great but the RPM (idle speed) will dip or hesitate? Again, it runs great on the highway. I think it’s the timing belt or serpentine belt is off, what do you think?
A. A worn timing or serpentine won’t cause an engine to idle poorly. I suspect there is a fuel issue. This could be a clogged/dirty fuel injector, vacuum leak or even a sticking exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve.
Q. Let me first say that I enjoy the insight that comes from you on both your radio show and Newsday. My question is about thread sealant. When doing routine repairs on my vehicles (brakes, suspension etc.) is it advisable to use thread sealant as an additional measure of safety or is it ok to just tighten nuts and bolts according to manufacturer’s specification?
A. Topically use a thread locker (Loctite is one) when that bolt is under extreme stress or instructed to by the vehicle manufacturer. If the fasteners are something that is something that are removed periodically, I wouldn’t use thread locker, just tighten to manufactures specifications.

There are many strategies for answering the "tell me about yourself" interview question. The way you choose to structure your answer may depend on your previous experience. A exact graduate will have a much different answer than a director who has been employed for decades.
While it's important to prepare your answer, you should also leave room for spontaneity and make sure it doesn't come out sounding too rehearsed.
Once you find a form that fits your experience the best, make sure you practice. Write down your answer so you can rearrange it, make sure it flows, and keep track of key points.
Also: These three tech skills could help recession-proof your career
Whichever method you choose, be sure to tie it back to the specific job and company you're interviewing for. The answer should make the interviewer think it makes sense you are interested in the role.
Your answer to the "tell me about yourself" question should describe your current situation, your past job experience, the reason you're a good fit for the role, and how you align with the company values.
Tell the interviewer about your current position and a exact big accomplishment or positive feedback you received. Avoid speaking negatively about your current job.
Also: Looking for a remote work job? It's getting harder to find one
The interviewer wants to hear how your current role is similar to the position you're applying for.
If you're currently a student, use this time to talk about relevant school experiences like classes you've taken, projects you liked, or internships.
Past job experience
The interviewer likely has your resume in front of them, so don't just tell them what they already know. Use this question to touch on your past work history and highlight areas that are applicable to the position you have now.
Describe your past job experience in chronological or reverse-chronological order.
If you switched industries, explain why with a quick personal anecdote that demonstrates your passions or interests.
Why did you choose this job to apply to? Why are you the best candidate for the role? Use this time to sell yourself to the interviewer and deliver them your "why." If you've tailored the other parts of your answer to the job you're interviewing for, this part will be easy.
Explain how this role aligns with your personal career goals to show you'll put in the effort to be successful.
Aligning and connecting your goals, passions, and strengths with the company/role
Research company culture. If you and the company both value working in teams or doing things individually, talk about that here. Be sure to mention If you have other interests or skills you've been working on that make you a better asset to the company.
Also: This company successfully switched to a four-day workweek. Here's how
Knowing the overall mission of the company to help you tailor your "why." If you're interviewing for an outdoor apparel company that values a good work-life balance, don't talk about how you love working nights and weekends to complete projects.
There are some rules when answering the "tell me about yourself" interview question. Interviewers have certain expectations when it comes to how you answer this question, so you don't want to deviate far from them.
One of the most important and basic interview tips is to stay professional. Being overly negative or oversharing about your personal life could end up costing you the job.
Also: Should I go back to school in a recession?
No company is perfect. Talking negatively about other places you've worked for may deliver the interviewer the impression that you won't be happy at the new company either.
If the interviewer asks why you left a job, keep it simple with an answer like, "I was looking for a new challenge."
Avoid making long-term plans
You wouldn't talk about plans a month from now on a first date, so why would you bring it up in an interview? Rushing into conversations about future goals with the company can seem premature. Save these conversations for later stages in the interview process.
Know your audience
Learning about the company you're interviewing with ahead of time is crucial. You can tailor your answer to focus on where you align with the company culture and be able to ask more informed questions at the end of the interview.
Concentrate on examples you can quantify
Saying that you brought in new customers is okay, but saying that you "increased website visits by 27% in one quarter" is much more meaningful and impressive. If you don't know the exact numbers, make a realistic estimate.
Highlight your personality
Mentioning that you quilt or play chess reveals more about you than just what you do in your spare time, it shows a part of your personality. Interactive roles like volunteer work or being a part of a softball team demonstrate that you are friendly and are able to communicate well with others.
Also: Remote work has changed everything. And it's still getting weirder
Get too personal
Avoid mentioning too much information about your private life. Talking about politics or your religious affiliation, marital status, or children might end up working against you. You wouldn't want the interviewer to pick a candidate based on the answers to any of these questions.
Memorize your responses
Giving a canned response may sound inauthentic. Remember a few of your main points and fill in the gaps naturally. Memorizing answers might even make you more likely to make mistakes if you forget a few words and can't find where you left off.
List your strengths without examples
Just saying that you are great at teamwork doesn't mean very much without an example to back it up. Add a sentence telling a story about a time you demonstrated each trait you highlight in your career.
Overwhelm the interviewer
Pick three or four personal strengths and stick to them. Going on and on about yourself or getting too personal might spoil the interviewer's first impression of you.
Keep it short, sweet, and professional to leave them interested.
Summarize your resume point by point
The person interviewing you has already read your resume, so telling them exactly what's on it could make them lose interest. Tell them the high points that are most relevant to the position you're applying for and add a few things you liked about each one.
This year, Halloween falls on a Sunday, and of course, Halloween always falls on October 31 — but have you ever wondered why?
To celebrate the spooky season, we've got some Halloween trivia Braindumps packed full of fun Halloween facts for you — like why people dress up in costumes on Halloween, what door-to-door trick or treating all about, and some weird Halloween traditions.
The questions below make for a great game to play at a Halloween party!
Answer: Halloween originated as an ancient Celtic festival. The pagan festival known as Samhain originated from the ancient Celtic spiritual tradition. It was typically celebrated from October 31 to November 1 to "welcome the harvest and usher in the dark half of the year.”
People who participated in the festival believed the barrier between the physical and spiritual world broke down during the festival, allowing for more interactions between humans and spirits.
Samhain was a midpoint between the fall equinox and the winter solstice. After the harvest is complete, people join Druid priests for the lighting of a community fire and animal sacrifice. People took fire from the bonfire to light their hearths at home.
Answer: The Celts believed there was a breachable barrier between worlds during Samhain. They prepared offerings for fairies because of this. Since the barrier was permeable, Celts wanted to protect their ancestors who may want to cross over. They dressed up as monsters so that the fairies wouldn't try to kidnap their ancestors.
A shape-shifting creature called the Pukah was associated with the mythology surrounding Samhain and it would the harvest offerings in the field. Another monster would be Lady Gwyn who was a headless woman in white and she would chase night wanderers; her sidekick was a black pig and it'd follow her everywhere.
The Dullahan can appear in various forms. They could come as impish creatures or headless men holding their heads while riding a horse. If anyone were to come across these headless men as they ride "flamed-eyed horses," it would be considered a death omen.
Additionally, the Faery Host — a group of hunters — would kidnap people during Samhain. The Sluagh are similar as they break into people's homes and steal souls.
Answer: According to History.com, the church designated November 2nd as a day to honor the dead. They officially named it All Souls' Day.
Similar to Samhain, All Souls' Day was celebrated with bonfires, costumes, and parades. All Saints' Days goes by a couple of other names, All-hallows or All-hallowmas, which comes from the Middle English word, "alholowmesse."
The night before All Saints' Day was called All Hallows Eve which evolved to Halloween.
Answer: Irish immigrants popularized Halloween. Halloween was largely forbidden throughout colonial America for religious reasons.
When Irish immigrants came to the United States, due to the 1840s potato famine, they brought their Halloween customs with them. In the 20th century, Halloween became a principal holiday throughout the country, especially among children.
Answer: Jack-o'-lanterns originated from an Irish myth about “Stingy Jack.”
The myth goes that Stingy Jack invited the Devil to have a drink with him. Stingy Jack didn’t want to pay for his drink and he convinced the Devil to turn himself into a coin instead. Once the Devil did so, Stingy Jack pocketed the coin instead of paying for the drink. Stingy Jack pocketed the coin near a silver cross, preventing the Devil from changing back.
Jack freed the Devil upon one condition: the Devil wouldn’t bother Jack for a year; if Jack died during that year, the Devil wouldn’t be able to claim his soul. Jack tricked the Devil again the next year and managed to get the Devil not bother him for 10 years.
Jack died and God wouldn’t let him into heaven. The Devil was still upset that Jack tricked and would allow him into hell. The Devil gave Jack a lump of burning coal to light his way and sent him off into the night. Jack has been roaming ever since.
The Irish referred to Jack as “Jack of the Lantern,” later to be shortened to “Jack O’Lantern.”
Answer: People have been trick-or-treating since Medieval times.
When the church designated a day for All Souls’ Day and Christianity began to blend its celebrations with the pagan holiday, poor people would visit the homes of rich families and receive pastries. In exchange for the pastries, the poor would pray for the souls of the dead family of the homeowners. The process was known as “souling,” and children eventually took it up.
In Scotland and Ireland, people would take part in “guising,” which is when they dress up in costumes and they’d accept offerings from different households.
Trick or treating also has its origins with Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Bonfire Night. On this night, children would wear masks while begging for pennies. Guy Fawkes, a part of a group of Catholics, was executed for his part in the conspiracy to blow up the British parliament.
In the 19th century, children would carry around effigies of Guy Fawkes and they’d ask for “a penny for the guy.”
Answer: The business of Halloween is quite lucrative.
In 2019, people in the United States spend about $2.6 billion on candy for Halloween. According to Forbes, people spent about $575 million on pumpkins in 2018. Last year, sales were projected to reach about $8.8 billion which was an increase from the previous decade which totaled only $4.8 billion.
The Halloween industry has boomed in the last couple of decades. There is even an annual convention called ScareLA. The convention premiered in 2013 and it served as the “first fan festival dedicated to the spirit of Halloween.”
ScareLa is in the middle of the summer in Southern California and it has performances by horror theatre companies and musicians. There are screenings of horror films, cosplay, and even interactive experiences. You could say that it’s the Comic-Con of Halloween.

Answer: A festival with bonfires that lasted for two days.

Answer: “Stingy Jack” fooled the Devil twice and the Devil sent him into the dark with only a lump of burning coal.
Answer: A man who was a part of a conspiracy to blow up the British parliament.
Answer: Guising is when people dress up in costumes and accept offerings from various people.
