September 1752 :Actually was not a month!!

>> Tuesday, August 26, 2008

Have you ever seen the calendar of 1952? If you have noticed you will find that you will fine that
eleven days are wiped off the face of the calender of september 1752.If you go through you can see the calendar of that year from where i have pasted this onto my blog . If you are a Linux user then you easily figure it out through following command.
At $ prompt ,type cal 9 1752.
You will get surprise when you see that 11 days have been swept away from the calender.

It is a month with whole of eleven days missing.This was the time when England shifted from Roman Julian calender to the Gregorian calender and the King of England ordered those eleven days to be wiped off the face of the month of September of 1752.What could't a king do in those days and the workers had to work for 11 days less ,but got paid for the entire month.That's how the "Paid Leave" are born.hail the king!!

Google Launches AdSense for Feeds !!

>> Saturday, August 16, 2008

I noticed a new option in my AdSense account that is AdSense for feeds, a program that displays contextual and placement-targeted ads in FeedBurner feeds. FeedBurner announced in May that AdSense for Feeds will be available to a small number of publishers and now it seems that everyone can use it.

FeedBurner is a Chicago-based company that provides media distribution and audience engagement services for blogs and RSS feeds. Its Web-based tools, including an extensive feed and blog advertising network, help publishers promote, deliver, and monetize their content on the Web and make feed-based content more accessible and manageable for its end users.

Google believes that feed-based content and advertising is a developing space where they can add value for users, advertisers and publishers. FeedBurner's technology and talented team are a great addition to Google's current solutions for advertisers and publishers. Google think there is great value in feed-based advertising. As more and more content emerges on the web, users are looking for an easier way to aggregate that content and create opportunities for advertisers to reach their target audiences while maintaining a high quality user experience.

The new AdSense for Feeds option lets you create a new ad unit that has a format automatically selected from 468x60 and 300x250. "Generally, the 300x250 size will display when there's more content and when your feed is being viewed in a device with a larger display," explains Google. You can choose if you want image ads, the ad frequency, the position (top or bottom of the post), the colors and a channel that tracks the ad performance.This is how we can activate the adsense set up for the feeds.

Presently, there is no connection between Adsense account and the Feedburner account .Therefore is is need to migrate from FeedBurner to Google Adsense.Google will soon provide a self-service process to migrate from an account on the original FeedBurner Website to a Google Account.

From AdSense, you can easily burn a new feed by entering the address of your blog and providing the Atom or RSS feeds options. The feeds can be managed , but there's no visible change other than the integration with Google Accounts and the new URLs for feeds:

After activating the new feed in the adsense account , google will automatically place the ads for feeds in your blog as soon as the the feeds are added by the Adsense user .
Feel free to share what you feel about this integeration , whether the feed based advertising and the integeration of FeedBurner's technology into Google increase the feed reading or not?
Whether the users will be able to aggregate the contents on the web through feed based advertising or not?
Feel free to share what you feel about this integeration.

Amazing Shoe Trees !!

>> Saturday, August 9, 2008

Yesterday,I was going through my mails and i met really amazing shoe trees. I found it really interesting to keep aware of this fact to all the bloggers.Have u ever imagined that a creepy tree covered with shoes ???? ..Here it is !!

A Shoe tree, not to be confused with the shoe-preservation device of the same name, is a tree or, occasionally, a powerline pole or other wooden object that has been festooned with old shoes. Shoe trees are generally located alongside a major local thoroughfare, and may have a theme such as high heeled shoes. There are currently at least seventy-six such shoe trees in the United States, and an undetermined number elsewhere . Shoe Trees may be the greatest embodiment of the American Spirit you can find on the highway (free of admission charge, anyway)

The Shoe Tree in Beaver, Arkansas was on the road to Beaver Dam, a few miles from Dinosaur World . It was mysteriously chosen, one of many thousands of trees and woods lining an otherwise featureless highway. Hundreds of old sneakers and running shoes dangled, some over 30 feet off the ground.

A shrunken old desert tree near Vidal, California , on Hwy 62 northest of the junction with Route 177, bore both shoes and a variety of shirts -- until some maniac burned it down in 2004.

On Highway 50 near Middlegate , Nevada , a lone cottonwood stands, clotted with hundreds of shoes. One tipster tells us the first pair was thrown during a wedding night argument by a young couple; later, their children's shoes were added to the bough. Whatever its origins, the tree now seems to suck up all the discarded footwear in the county.

The original Mud Flat Shoe Tree south of Altura, California was cut down in 1993, but second generation Shoe Trees sprouted along Highway 395.

One of them, the Ravendale shoe tree , features scores of sneaker pairs dangling from branches, a strange ritual by bored locals. Not a fully developed shoe tree, but far from anywhere .
