Google Moderator Released-Have Fun

Google Moderator has finally been released. Google Moderator is a tool that allows distributed communities to submit and vote on questions for tech talks, presentations and events. Google Moderator is a small application initially created for submitting and voting on the questions for Google's tech talks.

"At Google, we host a large number of "tech talks". These talks cover a wide rage of Computer Science topics like research in machine learning and methods for ranking images based on text queries. I've enjoyed attending these tech talks, but as the number of attendees has grown over time, the question-and-answer part of the talks hasn't been able to scale," explains Taliver Heath.

The application turned out to be useful for other things, like the company's meetings, and Google decided to launch it publicly on the App Engine platform.In his blog, head of Google's Webspam team Matt Cutts says "I like that Google is in many ways turning itself inside out by taking many of our internal tools and making them available to the world. We use tools such as Gmail and Google Docs all the time in-house to share information, presentations, and docs. Guido van Rossum recently announced that a version of Mondrian, our internal code review tool, is available for the outside world to use. Now Google Moderator is another tool that anyone can use. Projects such as Google Code and Google App Engine make it even easier to share code or applications with the world. And releasing low-level tools such as protocol buffers or high-level tools such as Google Web Toolkit makes life easier for lots of developers."

Google Rocks On it's 10th Happy Birthday!


Hi Folks! Today is the 10th Happy Birthday of Google. Google announces a brilliant project on their 1oth Birthday - Project 10 ^ 100 - May Those Who Help The Most Win.

Google Page Rank Update September 2008 - Another PR Update?

It seems like Google has increased the frequency of their Page Rank update. The last PR update happened just two months back. The latest one has already been started this weekend as many blogs again lost their PR. This blog 'Potpourri' has lost its PR from PR 4 to PR 3. Some sites have gained PR too such as Funny Jokes, Funny Pranks (PR 3 in first PR Update, then PR 1 in last PR update and now again PR 2 in this latest Google PR update) and Sizzling Celebrity (From PR 0 to PR 1 in this Google Update). There are various other examples of Google PageRank change in this latest Google Page RankUpdate, September 2008. Previous year there was a gap of 6 months between two major Google Page Rank Update and the big one took place in January 2008 Google Page Rank Update

The clue is coming again from Mr. Matt Cutts. He stated the following on a comment on his blog two days ago:

"I wouldn’t be surprised if new PageRanks started showing up this weekend or so."

I think that Perhaps Google is tweaking their algorithm, so they need to update things more frequently?

Alton Desiree, The 'Survivor' Crew -RIP

News Headline: Alton Desiree, The 'Survivor' Crew drowned - RIP (Rest In Peace)

Alton Desiree,a Loubiere man and a crew member of the famous reality TV show 'Survivor' has been reported as drowned in Brazil.His wife, Susan Desiree said her husband left the island on September 9 for Brazil to continue his assignment after spending time with his family.“We had a great, great time together, we took a trip and rekindled our love to each other and I just did not want him to go when the time came…,” she said.She recalled how she cried on arrival at the Melville Hall Airport as he was preparing to leave Dominica.

“I held his hand even while he was in the departure lounge not wanting him to go…he came out giving me a hug and the went back inbut returned again before returning to board his flight,” Mrs. Desiree stated.Mrs. Desiree did not hear from him after that and began to feel uneasy.“…I had not heard from him since he left me on September 9. Now, after moving from one country to another, it would normally take them about two days to get all sorted out so by the weekend I was expecting him to call me,” Desiree noted.

“Then, I started to use my mind communication to communicate with him since we had over the years developed that closeness; we normally do that … and in doing so, something told me that he wanted to make contact with me but he could not … he was telling me something and I was telling him something; I was sad,” she said with a deep sigh.“I then went to bed but felt uneasy during the night and just could not sleep ... something was just not right as I struggled to fall asleep during the night. I could hardly wait for the night to be over since I was just uncomfortable,” she added.

The following day, September 15, her phone rang and she heard the voice of an Australia woman with whom her husband worked.“I shouted, ‘Yes I’ in joy as I waited expectantly to hear his voice on the other side of the line,” she said, her voice breaking.However, Mrs. Desiree said the woman’s tone suggested something was wrong.“I said ‘you are calling about Alton?’ … and she said ‘yes.’ ‘Is he alright?’ I asked. ‘I am afraid not,’ she replied. I started to scream ‘My lady, my lady, tell me…’”

The woman the explained to Mrs. Desiree that her husband had gone under the water and his colleagues could not find him.Upon hearing the news, Mrs. Desiree started to shout and collapsed.Even after hearing the news, she hoped the woman would call again with good news. However, the woman called again an hour later saying that Mr. Desiree had been found dead.

Alton has left the island on September 9 for Brazil to continue his assignment after spending time with his family, his wife, Susan Desiree said.

Since the day he left there were no news from him, she added.

The newspaper reported a woman crew of Survivor telephoned Mrs. Alton Desiree September 15 and informed her that her husband had died. Alton Desiree had been instructed to go underwater to fix something of the show.

However, further details of Alton’s death and bibliography will not available on internet in the next 14 days, source said.

Our condolences to Mrs. Desiree. Prayers and thoughts to the Desiree family, the crew and cast of Survivor.

God And I - The Divine Capability


Whether God created man in his own image, or man created God in his own image, one thing is certain: man's ideal image.

Almost every spiritual belief in the world recognizes creativity as God's most predominant feature. Almost all of them claim that in the beginning there was nothing, and then God thought or said "Let there be light" or something else. And then out of that void, that nothingness, light or whatever else that God desired was created.

So if our ideal image is the God image, then we should also endeavor to create our desires out of nothing, with complete and divine indifference to circumstances. After all, what circumstance could be more challenging than to create something out of nothing?

Every cell in our body is also a conscious and thinking being. It is alive with life and thought. It also has needs and desires. Each cell needs food and oxygen, and needs to eliminate and multiply.

But somehow, every need of every cell in our body is already taken care of. Whenever it needs food, the food is readily available to it. When it needs oxygen, our blood brings it the oxygen. When it needs to eliminate waste, the circulatory and elimination systems take the waste away, thus cleaning up the environment for the cell.

Somehow, the body has figured out a way to provide for every need and desire of the cell, before it even knows it has them. And the cell has the choice to partake of the food and oxygen and grow and multiply, or not, or mutate and become sick and die, or even become hostile and cancerous.

Nevertheless, the body provides for every need of that cell, before the cell even has it.

In the same manner, we are like individual cells within our planet and universe. Our world provides for our every need, before we even have it. Yet we may choose to receive those gifts, or deny them to ourselves, or block them, or abuse them. We may become martyrs or even hostile and destructive. But that is the freedom of choice that we have.

The universe has done its job of providing for our every need and desire, before we even have them. This is what the Bible means by saying that the Father provides for our every desire before we even think of them.

The genius of the human potential movement and the New Age movement has been to recognize this divine capability, this creative ability in us. However, their failing has been the relegating of the object of desire to the individual human mind.

Much like the cell in our body has freedom to choose to fulfill its needs, we also have that same choice. However, in the case of our bodies, we have a mind which is more powerful than the mind of the individual cell. It is, in fact, the synergistic totality of every little mind within our body. It is more than all the individual minds.

The mind of the individual cell is subject to the choices of our mind. If I decide to go to the bathroom, no matter how much the individual cell may wish to go to the kitchen, or sit still, it is going to end up in the bathroom. That is because the greater mind over-rides the lesser mind, within the same system.

It is much the same in the universe. The Universal mind, God, Higher Power, or whatever other name we may wish to call it by, which is the synergistic mind of the totality of the universe, over-rides our individual mind choices. Within the general workings of the God-mind, we have the freedom to choose our behavior and responses and creations, yet there is a greater mind which determines the general flow of our lives.

We may ideally align ourselves with the general flow, or "follow our Bliss", and then we will find that the universe will deliver opportunities to us in ways that we could not even have wished for, what we call "synchronicity". Yet we have the choice to oppose this flow, block it, or fight it, and ultimately leave the general scheme through death in this physical world.

When we recognize the greater mind, the God-mind, and when we allow ourselves to follow its general direction, without fear and without attachment to how things should be or should turn out, then we follow our destiny and allow it to unfold. The paradox is following our destiny gives us most joy, and is achieved with maximum ease and least effort.

The 3 Dimensions of Consciousness

Just as in the physical world so far we have perceived four dimensions, three spatial and one of time, in the spiritual realm, or the realm of consciousness we can also perceive three dimensions. Naturally there may be more in either worlds yet to be perceived and discovered.

The 3 dimensions in the plane of consciousness are Thought, Faith, and Love.

Thought is the dimension of creativity. This is what creates physical and non-physical things. Things such as objects, buildings, software, stories, visions etc.

While Thought is the `what' of creation, Faith is the `how' of creation. The quality of Faith differs from that of Thought. Faith is the absolute knowing of possibilities. While Thought determines what mountains to move, Faith is what moves mountains. Nothing may be created without the trust, belief and Faith that it can be created, be it material or immaterial.

And finally comes Love. Love is the quality of creation. Whereas Thought is the blueprint of creation, and Faith is the mechanism of creation, Love is the grace, the essence or the quality of creation. Love determines the closeness of the creation to perfection.

To use another analogy, Thought determines what is to be written, Faith is the pen with which it is written, and Love is the handwriting. Or Thought is the content, Faith is the clarity and contrast of the ink and paper, and Love is the gracefulness and beauty of the writing.

These are the three orthogonal axes of the spiritual world, the dimensions of consciousness.

Sarah Palin Baby Name Generator - LOL, It's Scary!

Sarah Palin is one popular gun-totin' mama, so it's natural that everyone would want to know what their name would be if she was their mom, right?

Well, regardless of whether or not you think people are obsessing over Sarah Palin, everyone and their mothers want to know one thing - what would their names be if Sarah had been their mother?

He He :) it's really stupid, but for some reason we can't stop laughing.

Go here
Sarah Palin Baby Name Generator and try the Sarah Palin baby name generator. You enter your name, and it spits out what your name would be if your mom was the now famous governor of Alaska.

We don't know how it works, but it produces some pretty frontier-sounding-moose-shooting-salmon-gutting names.

John McCain would have been "Stick Freedom Palin." Barack Obama, "Mangle Blue Palin." And the governor, had she been born to herself, would have been "Claw Washout Palin."

Just a few of the names that have been given out so far by the Sarah Palin Baby Name Generator are: Hen Waffle Palin, Ladel Torque Palin, Cue Manhunt Palin and Flack Gobbler Palin!

We've also plugged the key players around Palin's campaign into the generator, from staunch supporters and dead ringers to protesters and bitter rivals. Some results are so suitable, it's scary.

Barack Obama:
"Tarp Lazer" Palin

Joe Biden:
"Beans Harpoon" Palin

John McCain:
"Steam Fangs" Palin

Hillary Clinton:
"Engine Nighthawk" Palin

Bill Clinton:
"Steak Leather" Palin

George W. Bush:
"Jeep Pike" Palin

Tina Fey:
"Buster Taint" Palin

Matt Damon:
"Crunk Petrol" Palin

Lindsay Lohan:
"Crust Scramble" Palin

Oprah Winfrey:
"Axe Diesel" Palin

Durga, in Sanskrit means "She who is incomprehensible or difficult to reach." Goddess Durga is a form of Sakti worshiped for her gracious as well as terrifying aspect. Mother of the Universe, she represents the infinite power of the universe and is a symbol of a female dynamism. The manifestation of Goddess Durga is said to emerge from Her formless essence and the two are inseparable.

Durga Puja includes the worships of Shiva, Lakshmi, Ganesha, Saraswati, Kartikeya and Mahishasura also. Modern tradition have come to include the display of decorated pandals and artistically depicted idols of Durga, exchange of Bijoya Greetings and publication of Puja Annuals. Durga Puja is organized by communities comprising of Indians in the US ,Europe and Australia. Although pandals are not constructed, the idols are flown in from Kumartuli in Bengal. The desire by the diaspora peoples to keep in touch with their cultural ties has led to a boom in religious tourism, as well as learning from priests or purohits versed in the rites. Also recently, the immersion of the Durga idol has been allowed in the Thames river for the festival which is held in London.

Eid ul-Fitr or Id-Ul-Fitr often abbreviated to Eid, is a Muslim holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting. Eid is an Arabic word meaning "festivity", while Fiṭr means "to break the fast" (and can also mean "nature", from the word "fitrah") and so symbolizes the breaking of the fasting period.

Eid ul-Fitr is a one day celebration and is called "The Smaller Eid" compared with the Eid ul-Adha that lasts three days and is called "The Greater Eid"

Muslims celebrate ‘Eid ul Fitr on the first day of Shawwal — the tenth month of the Islamic calendar, following the month of Ramadhan (in which the revelation started and ended 20+ years later, and which is also the month of fasting). Following a Lunar calendar, Muslims mark the beginning of the month with the sighting of the new crescent.

The month long fasting of Ramadan culminates into the festival of ‘Eid-ul-Fitr (the Festival of Fast-Breaking). It is a festival of joy, family reunion and thanksgiving to Almighty God. The giving of a special charity for this occasion is obligatory. This is known as Zakat. Muslims dress in holiday attire, attend a special community prayer in the morning, and visit friends and relatives. Greetings of “‘Eid mubarak,” or “a blessed ‘Eid” are exchanged.


Common greetings during this holiday are the Arabic greeting EĪd mubārak ("Blessed Eid") or ‘Īd sa‘īd ("Happy Eid"). In addition, many countries have their own greetings based on local language and traditions.

Typically, Muslims will wake up early in the morning and have a small breakfast. Muslims are encouraged to dress in their best clothes (new if possible) and to attend a special Eid prayer that is performed in congregation at mosques or open areas like fields, squares etc. When Muslims finish their fast at the last day (29th or 30th Ramadan), they recite Takbir:

Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar,
la ilaha illa Allah
Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar
wa li-illahi al-hamd

God is the Greatest, God is the Greatest, God is the Greatest,
There is no deity but God
God is the Greatest, God is the Greatest
and to God goes all praise

The Takbir is recited after confirmation that the moon of Shawwal is sighted on the eve of the last day of Ramadan. It continues until the start of the Eid prayer. Before the Eid prayer begins, every Muslim who is able must pay Zakat al-fitr,an alms for the month of Ramadan. This equates to about 2 kg of a basic foodstuff (wheat, barley, dates, raisins, etc.), or its cash equivalent, and is typically collected at the mosque. This is distributed to needy local Muslims prior to the start of the Eid prayer. It can be given at any time during the month of Ramadan and is often given early, so the recipient can use it for Eid purchases. This is distinct from Zakat based on wealth, which must be paid to a worthy charity.

The Eid prayer (salah) is followed by the khutbah (sermon) and then a prayer (dua') asking for forgiveness, mercy and help for the plight of Muslims across the world. The khutbah also instructs Muslims as to the rituals of Eid, such as the zakat.It is then customary to embrace the persons sitting on either side of oneself. People will also visit their relatives, friends and acquaintances.

After the prayers, some people will pay visit to the graveyards (ziyarat al-qubur).

Yogi Berra on Yankee Stadium tribute

Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra (born May 12, 1925 in St. Louis, Missouri) is a former Major League Baseball player and manager. He played almost his entire career for the New York Yankees and was elected to the baseball Hall of Fame in 1972. Arguably the most beloved baseball player since Babe Ruth, Yogi Berra was one of only four players to be named the Most Valuable Player of the American League three times, and one of only six managers to lead both American and National League teams to the World Series.

Yogi Berra, who quit school in the eighth grade, has a tendency toward malapropism and fracturing the English language in highly provocative, interesting ways. Simultaneously denying and confirming his reputation, Yogi Berra once stated, "I didn't really say everything I said."

Yogi Berra's Comment

# As a general comment on baseball: "Ninety percent of this game is half mental."
# On why he no longer went to a popular St. Louis restaurant: "Nobody goes there no more, it's too crowded!"
# "It ain't over till it's over." - After Berra's 1973 Mets trailed the Chicago Cubs by 9½ games in the National League East; the Mets rallied to win the division title on the next-to-last day of the season.
# When giving directions to his New Jersey home, which was equally accessible via two different routes: "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
# On being the guest of honor at an awards banquet: "I'd like to thank all those who made this night necessary."
# "It's like déjà vu all over again"
# "You can observe a lot by just watching."
# "It's tough making predictions, especially about the future"
# "Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours."
# On a trip to Cooperstown, to attend a dinner, Phil Rizzuto commented to Yogi, "I think we're lost." To which Yogi responded "Yeah, but we're making great time."
# When told by a friend he looked 'cool' today, Yogi innocently responded "You don't look so hot yourself."
# When asked if he wanted a personal pizza cut into 4 or 8 slices, Yogi responded with "Better cut it into 4, I don't think I could eat 8.


Latest news on Yogi Berra

Yogi Berra enjoys final night at Cathedral.

For the celebrations honoring the final game at Yankee Stadium, the former catcher donned a uniform similar to the one Yogi Berra wore during his playing days. Instead of the crisp white jersey worn by current players, Berra's was off-white, and the fabric was the traditional flannel.

He wore the uniform through the pregame ceremonies when he was joined by former teammates and fellow Yankees alumni on the field to honor the history of baseball's Cathedral. The memories Berra holds from his time as a player made the day bittersweet as the club prepares to move across 161st Street to its new facilities.

"You hate to see it go," Yogi Berra said. "I played here all my life. Playing with all the guys I played with was terrific."

Yogi Berra never played in the stadium as it stood Sunday night. He finished his career before it was remodeled in 1973. But the ballpark still holds the same meaning for him as the original stadium.

"It's still Yankee Stadium," he said. "It will always be in my heart."

When asked what he would want from the Cathedral, Yogi Berra joked that home plate would make a nice souvenir, knowing that that particular piece of stadium memorabilia will likely end up in Cooperstown rather than Berra's house.

Known for his unconventional sayings and "Yogi-isms," Berra was asked if he would have to amend the phrase "It ain't over 'til it's over," because even once the building is gone, the aura of Yankee Stadium will never fade.

Yogi Berra laughed.

"I say things I don't even know I say sometimes," he said. "But I'm sorry to see it over, I'll say that."
