Adsense has launched video units in other "English-speaking countries" like UK,Canada,etc after the US. But,they fail to notice Indian publishers. India has more people speaking English than the UK. But they are still in no hurry to launch it in India.

This EPL season seems to be heading the previous seasons la liga way. Barca was trampling over other clubs but suddenly their form dipped and they failed to win any title and Real Madrid clinching the la liga . This time around I think Arsenal will go the same way. Their unbeaten streak has ended.And I predict Manchester United clinching the title like Real.
P.S.: I am a MAN U fan,so,pls bear with me for my prediction.

This is what the cover page of a popular magazine for the month of december suggests. I think we are reading too much about Dravid being left out. Let us give our cricketers a break.
Google which has limitless resources is planning to get into a new business of finding new sources of renewable energy. The company announced that it will hire engineers to develop alternative source of energy . This help the internet giant to save millions of dollars in power bills required to run its data center and also initiate in corporate world environment consciousness.
The Finance Minister of India Chidambaram has announced tax sops to the exporters to offset the losses they are suffering due to the weakening dollar. Its about time that our government woke up.
Now, I hope they give such sop to bloggers who earn in dollars through various programs .
Due to increase in my anticipation of the launch of ICL, I thought of logging on to its website. I found it pretty good. But on clicking on the latest news I was taken to the 404 error page. Not a great omen for the league which takes pride in saying that it is trying to bring professionalism in Indian Cricket. And with a google pagerank of zero this blog and the website are on the same level.
And I still maintain that they should have thought of a better name for its teams

Goal is not a bad film but at the same time not a unique film either despite the focusing on a sport attempted very few times in India. However, the film isn’t a complete waste. In football terms its something like a midfield. Football is a sport witnessed very few times in Indian cinema and somewhere you can call it a brave attempt. The sports and the setting is unique but the plot however as mentioned before has been witnessed a number of times.
The biggest risk while attempting to make a sports film is that unless you make that extra effort to flow against the tide while writing the screenplay, it can get too predictable. And that’s exactly the problem with Dhan Dhana Dhan Goal .
Soccer lovers might prefer to watch the film as well as John Abraham fans. So if you aren’t too keen on watching Madhuri Dixit’s comeback next week then Goal is a safe bet. Or else just pick up the DVD of Chak De India !
One of the world's most glamorous accessories -- the Choos brand -- is adored by celebrities, who are often spotted on the red carpet adorning the brand. But Choos come at a price.
The first store, which has opened in Mumbai, has plenty to feast your eyes on. The store is aesthicathly designed to make you feel like you're walking into a woman's boudier. And with exorbitant price tags, the wait is over for people who are brand conscious and don't mind splurging.
The inimitable, aspirational, posh and yet very unique, these ultra chic cocoons of pampering come at astronomical price. And if you can afford splurging, then you wouldn't need to know splurge on a first class international ticket to pick up your pair of choo's. With their first flagship store in Mumbai, no surprises for guessing as to why the financial capital of the country was chosen for the launch.

BJP broke its own record of being in power for 13 days when BJP's first government in south India fell in just 7 days. BJP appears to have paid the political price for refusing last-minute demands from JD(S) chief Deve Gowda and his son and former CM H D Kumaraswamy to hand over plum portfolios of urban development, mines and geology.
Though never concerned about scruples, Deve Gowda broke fresh grounds even by his standards of political machinations by reneging on the deal with BJP.
He is being blamed for reducing politics in Karnataka to the theatre of the absurd with the former PM first refusing to hand over power to BJP in October, then making up and finally again ditching his partner — all in a month and a half.
I just hope the BJP doesn't carry this bad luck to Gujrat.
Shahrukh Khan once again proved that he is the king of Bollywood. Sony corp. debut in bollywood by partnering with Sawariya went cold. Sony just managed to get back its dues because of its decision to release its movie along with shahrukh khan's om shanti om.
You may argue that sawariya had a new cast.Then you should take note that last year also during Diwali Janeman starring Salman khan ,Akshay Kumar was launched alongside shahrukh khan's Don. Don just steamrolled Janeman in the box office.
Please note that I am not a fan of Shahrukh Khan . I am only disappointed with film makers for releasing wrong movies at wrong time. GOAL which is being highly anticipated should have been released during diwali weekend. It would have given a chance to be entertained by good movie and not by the mediocre movies released.
It is interesting to note that Hollywood's King Tom Cruise is loosing his hold over his audience while Khan is strengthening his.

On the first day of the Clean Up drive, an American was made to pick up litter he threw on the street near the Gateway of India.there were several other cases,too. However, nobody was fined .
On the second day the agencies managed to catch their first big fish, which could well be a deterrent to people who dump debris. Marshals deployed by Vishal Protection Force (VPF) managed to stop one flying tipper that was dumping debris on the Goregaon-Malad link road at 3 pm.
Humiliated by Nandigram incident the Left have been cornered. They were trying to stop development in India . But now they have to accept the deal.
India's communist parties have approved the government starting crucial talks with a UN watchdog on a controversial civilian nuclear deal with the US.
The move by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's left allies has revived hopes that the deal is not dead.
Earlier, the communists had opposed the deal, threatening to pull out of the governing coalition.
This had led to the belief that Mr Singh may be forced to shelve the deal which he had described as a "landmark".
I just can't believe i was stuck with Harry Potter . I don't have much reading habits but I gave in to the hype and purchased the Harry Potter books. But thanks to my friend i purchased sidney sheldon's TELL ME YOUR DREAMS . This book took me out of the fantasy land of Harry Potter and intoduced me to fiction.
The central character of the book is Ashley. She is a workaholic. She suffers from a condition known as "Multiple Personality Disorder" or MPD (presently known as Dissociative Identity Disorder).
Characters involved are
Ashley is an introvert and a workaholic. Toni is very outgoing and dynamic. She can sing and dance. Alette is a very innocent and shy girl. She is an excellent painter.
Toni is angry with Ashley as they are completely contrasting characters. She always criticizes her in front of Alette. Alette keeps calming Toni down every time. Toni hates Ashley. Allete is neutral. But Toni and Alette are friends.
Ashley's fears that somebody is following her are confirmed when somebody breaks into her house and writes on her looking glass with a lipstick, "You will die." Many men are mudered. One common thing all the murders have is the victims had sex before the murder with the woman who murdered them. Who's behind the serial murders?
This book delves into the much debated topic of multiple personality disorder.
The courtroom scene and treatment is superb.
After jobs ,students are moving to India. America has always got a large chunk of students travelling abroad from India. However in recent years it has reduced .
Now this reversal has taken place . There are reports that American students leaving US for India are increasing at twenty percent annually . It is because of good but cheap infrastructure in India.

My friend who works in Google in USA told me that Google is planning to introduce new experimental search types. Google is going to pay select searchers who apply to search and give feedback. Google will pay according to their work from $50 to $150 per hour via checks or will credit it to their AdWords account.
The application will be released in mid-December .
There are rumours that instead of inviting bids BCCI is going to issue a IPO in the BSE. So , all those who want the stars of cricketing world playing for them can bid for this IPO.
I just hope that they don't keep childish names to the teams like ICL did!!!
Tuesday, November 13, 2007
The media is abuzz with reports that ownership of teams of BCCI backed Indian Premiere league is being sought after several industrialist and teams of English Premiership league and National Basketball Association. But I feel that the league will fail as in case of other sports club matches are played more than than international matches . Whereas in cricket more interntional matches are played . In soccer hardly four international matches are played in a month and most of matches are qualifiers.So there is craze for club matches. In cricket, there are three format. So International matches plus club matches together will in end kill the passion for the game.
For IPL to survive it will have to eat into the market of international cricket especially of test matches .

Thanks to India's 100% win record in twenty20 all ODIs with slow pitches and pace of game seem very boring. I don't understand why doesn't the ICC just discard this format.
