successful migrant groups in the US share three traits — a superiority complex insecurity and impulse control A SEEMINGLY un-American fact about America today is that for some groups much more than others upward mobility and the American dream are alive and well It may be taboo to say it but certain ethnic religious and national-origin groups are doing strikingly better than Americans overall Indian-Americans earn almost double the national figure (roughly $90000 per year in median household income versus $50000) Iranian- Lebanese- and Chinese-Americans are also top earners In the last 30 years Mormons have become leaders of corporate America holding top positions in many of America’s most recognisable companies These facts don’t make some groups “better” than others and material success cannot be equated with a well-lived life But wilful blindness to facts is never a good policy Jewish success is the most historically fraught and the most broad-based Although Jews make up only about 2 per cent of the United States’ adult population they account for a third of the current Supreme Court; over two-thirds of Tony Award-winning lyricists and composers; and about a third of American Nobel laureates The most comforting explanation of these facts is that they are mere artifacts of class — rich parents passing on advantages to their children — or of immigrants arriving in this country with high skill and education levels Important as these factors are they explain only a small part of the picture Although India and China send the most immigrants to the US through employment-based channels almost half of all Indian immigrants and over half of Chinese immigrants do not enter the country under those criteria Many are poor and poorly educated Comprehensive data published by the Russell Sage Foundation in 2013 showed that the children of Chinese Korean and Vietnamese immigrants experienced exceptional upward mobility regardless of their parents’ socioeconomic or educational background Merely stating the fact that certain groups do better than others — as measured by income test scores and so on — is enough to provoke a firestorm in America today and even charges of racism The irony is that the facts actually debunk racial stereotypes There are some black and Hispanic groups in America that far outperform some white and Asian groups Immigrants from many West Indian and African countries such as Jamaica Ghana and Haiti are climbing America’s higher education ladder but perhaps the most prominent are Nigerians Nigerians make up less than 1 per cent of the black population in the US yet in 2013 nearly one-quarter of the black students at Harvard Business School were of Nigerian ancestry; over a fourth of Nigerian-Americans have a graduate or professional degree as compared with only about 11 per cent of whites Most fundamentally groups rise and fall over time The fortunes of WASP elites have been declining for decades Group success in America often tends to dissipate after two generations Thus while Asian-American kids overall had SAT scores 143 points above average in 2012 a 2005 study of over 20000 adolescents found that third-generation Asian-American students performed no better academically than white students The fact that groups rise and fall this way punctures the whole idea of “model minorities” or that groups succeed because of innate biological differences Rather there are cultural forces at work It turns out that for all their diversity the st-rikingly successful groups in America today share three traits that together propel success The first is a superiority complex — a deep-seated belief in their exceptionality The second appears to be the opposite — insecurity a feeling that you or what you’ve done is not good enough The third is impulse control Any individual from any background can have what we call this Triple Package of traits But research shows that some groups are instilling them more frequently than others and that they are enjoying greater success It’s odd to think of people feeling simultaneously superior and insecure Yet it’s precisely this unstable combination that generates drive: a chip on the shoulder a goading need to prove oneself Add impulse control — the ability to resist temptation — and the result is people who systematically sacrifice present gratification in pursuit of future attainment Ironically each element of the Triple Package violates a core tenet of contemporary American thinking In isolation each of these three qualities would be insufficient Alone a superiority complex is a recipe for complacency; mere insecurity could be crippling; impulse control can produce asceticism Only in combination do these qualities generate drive

NewsPublished: January 20 2014 2:05 am In another country and culture a heritage site such as Hampi would have become a focal point for archaeological conservation and tourism PTI Related News At Hampi the Karnataka government showed how not to hold a cultural festival A controversial foreign jaunt of a bunch of Karnataka legislators a so-called study tour to Latin America was recently cancelled after a public uproar By then another group of legislators was already halfway through a similar excursion and living it up in the tourist hotspots of Australia This wasn’t the first time the government has funded Karnataka ministers’ and legislators’ trips to exotic foreign tourist hotspots However none of this has translated into even an iota of learning on developing tourism in the backyard if the slapdash organising of an annual festival in the historic Hampi was anything to go by When Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah arrived last week to inaugurate the government-sponsored Hampi Utsav cultural festival at the ancient site in northern Karnataka he was well on time The festival however took off two-and-a-half hours behind schedule because of an unusual embarrassing hitch: there was no audience for the inauguration The so-called platinum and gold stands at the festival were so empty that the district administration prime movers of the festival was forced to herd people randomly into the chairs Listening to a grandiose speech by a politician even a chief minister on a dais packed with an assortment of politicians is nobody’s idea of a cultural festival The locale was perfect though The three-day fete was set against the dreamy enchanting backdrop of Hampi’s majestic centuries-old ruins amid giant boulders and lush banana plantations Hampi 360 kilometres from Bangalore offers a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the famed Vijayanagara kings who reigned over the prosperous kingdom between the 14th and 16th centuries The entire city is relatively well preserved despite being ravaged by time and the plundering rulers of the Deccan Sultanate Before its decline Hampi was the epitome of wealthy living in a rich kingdom where merchants traded in gold and precious gems in open bazaars For over 25 years now the Karnataka government has clumsily tried to boost tourism to the beautiful location by spending crores to hold the Hampi Utsav The efforts have been desultory and ham-handed for one primary reason — the festival organiser has been the government itself The “annual” festival has been held sporadically and when held on different dates each year This year’s low point came even before the Hampi Utsav was formally opened Festival preparations by the local government have irrevocably damaged several priceless structures within the heritage site An earthmover was brought in to dig a trench near the protected Queen’s Bath monument to prevent rainwater from entering the soak pit of the toilet Local newspapers printed photos of the dug-up earth on the sides of the trench with clearly visible pieces of broken earthenware dating back centuries Considerable harm had already been done by the time officials of the Archaeological Survey of India intervened and stopped the digging At another spot a stone mantap in the 15th century structure called Krishna Bazaar had been hit and damaged by a truck carrying materials to construct a pavilion for the festival Festival organisers had installed decorative lights at the monuments without permission A festival at a Unesco heritage site should have been appropriately grand but this year’s festival was an affair catering to the local crowd The organisers brought in Bollywood singers comedians and pop dance groups from Bangalore The three-day festival attracted a mere couple of lakh visitors In another country and culture a heritage site such as Hampi would have become a focal point for archaeological conservation and tourism The sights would have been thoughtfully promoted to history aficionados An annual festival such as the Hampi Utsav would have been planned well in advance to attract a national and international audience and scheduled on particular dates each year Even small fringe music festivals and carnivals in Europe and the Americas attract visitors by the millions and serve to boost their local economies through the millions of dollars ploughed back into conserving and enhancing the location By that yardstick Hampi Utsav is a monumental annual disaster The organisers could not even pull off a borrowed idea A 15-minute helicopter ride “Hampi by Sky” which was to offer tourists a panoramic view of the magnificent ruins was a marred by bad planning Hundreds of visitors stood in line for the Rs 2000 ride which was serviced by a single helicopter Like other eminent Indian tourist sites Hampi suffers from the lack of good connectivity from its nearest city Bangalore The roads leading to Hampi are rutted paths that have been roughed-up by the numerous iron ore-laden trucks passing through (it is after all in Bellary where the mining mafia ruled for years) Hampi is deficient in basic infrastructure such as budget hotels and organised tours The Hampi Bazaar the Virupaksha Temple the village of Anegundi on the banks of the river Tungabhadra and other attractions are mesmerising enough for visitors to want to linger But the spare facilities end up driving away the most ardent of history devotees [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsMiami: A tiny invisibility cloak has been invented by US scientists who are edging ever-closer to a real version of what has until now been a staple of science fiction researchers said Thursday The cloak described in the journal Science is microscopic in size but could conceivably be scaled up in the future according to physicists at the US Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California Berkeley A 3D illustration of a metasurface skin cloak Xiang Zhang group Berkeley Lab/UC Berkeley It works by manipulating light changing how light waves bounce off an object so that it cannot be detected by the eye "This is the first time a 3D object of arbitrary shape has been cloaked from visible light" said lead author Xiang Zhang director of Berkeley Lab’s Materials Sciences Division "Our ultra-thin cloak now looks like a coat It is easy to design and implement and is potentially scalable for hiding macroscopic objects" Using tiny gold fibers known as nanoantennas researchers made a cloak that is 80 nanometers in thickness and can wrap around a three-dimensional object about the size of a few biological cells "The surface of the skin cloak was meta-engineered to reroute reflected light waves so that the object was rendered invisible to optical detection when the cloak is activated" said the study However this little cloak still has some big limitations For instance the patterns of the nanoantennas must be precisely engineered to match the surface bumps of the object beneath meaning the object cannot move or it would lose its invisible cover Nor can the features to be hidden be too large or sharp compared to the wavelength of light because any shadows cast cannot be erased Zeno Gaburro a physicist at the University of Trento in Italy was quoted as saying in an accompanying article about the technology in the journal Science "The face that is dark does not see the light so there’s no way you can correct for (the shadow) with this technique" Gaburro said But Zhang is confident the technology can eventually be scaled up "I don’t see any roadblocks" he said AFP Taking a strong stand on terrorism fuelled by India’s neighbour
