Google Search tips

  1. Let's say, for example, that you'd like to search for a PDF of Ernest Hemingway's novel The Sun Also Rises. The proper search phrase would be 'sun also rises filetype:pdf.'
  2. Use the trigger word 'movie:*** brwill ask you for your location if you haven't registered it already with the search engine. Once you provide that information, Google will instantly return a listing of movie theatres where the film is playing, along with showtimes. The triggers 'film' and 'showtimes' work identically, by the way.
  3. Need to find out how many dollars you can get for a certain number of euros? Easy. Just type, for instance, '400 euros in dollars,' and you'll have the answer even before you can finish typing 'dollars,' thanks to Google's Auto Suggestion feature.
  4. find an image of a search phrase, just add the word 'image' at the end of the phrase. For example, typing 'Jefferson image' brings up images of Thomas Jefferson.
  5. And adding 'time' to the end of the name of a city or country will result in Google's telling you what time it is in that place.

Manmohan singh : Second inning is 2nd class inning

2004 :

- Learner PM and newbie for high-level politics.
- Government was critically dependent on the left and a motley group of small parties like SP and RJD etc.

2009 :
- Experienced PM in polictics of coalition.
- Mandate was clearly for a more stable coalition, with the UPA no longer in need of weekly life support from any of its coalition partners.

Examples of Failures...
1. Kashmir : The same old crisis has festered since June-2010, yet it took over two months before the prime minister publicly intervened. He reiterated the same : a promise of jobs and another committee.
2. Naxal challenge : Chidambaram and Government's stand ranges from uncertain to chaotic.
3. An IITian and Environment Minister Jairam Ramesh :
- fights with another minsiter Praful Patel over the (much-needed) second airport in Mumbai, PM appears unwilling to exercise veto power.
4. A Raja( C& IT minister) : has serious allegations of corruption, PM doesn't appear in any hurry to seek an explanation or effect a ministerial reshuffle.
5. Sharad Pawar(Agri. Minister) : Whole india cries for food grain and price rise. He shows little urgency in enforcing accountability.
6. Sports Minister(Gill) : is not able to organize the Commonwealth Games without any issue and controvercy.
7. Railway Minister (Mamta di) :Mamta gives virtual support to the Maoists and stays in cabinet. Railways are not getting her time as she is more interested in state politics.
8. SM Krishna(Foreign minister) : is not able to handle the pressure in pakistan and sit just red-faced when Qureshi taunt the Indian foreign policy establishment.

Wah UStad Wah....

Obama is a double standard politician :
  • one side he talks that US and India are natural ally .......
  • Other side he says "Jobs will not go to India,China...."
Now question is how much India or china is affected by his second statement:
China sells products and almost all US product companies like Nike,IBM,Walmart...etc uses china's products to cut down the manufacturing the jobs will not go to China but orders will definitely go to china....
But what about India - Software service Jar of the world ; Are we equally affected by Obama's statement as China ----No not at all :
US knows that Indian software companies are benefitted by BRAIN and Hardwork of indians so they are putting strange taxes and fees to curb the margin. US is trying its best to retain the Indian hard-work profit as much as possible in US.
Totalisation Agreement :
India has signed this agreement with US. This is killing agreement for many of us per this ...Indian professionals who go on a short-term visa to the US are also required to pay social security taxes that come to an average of 22% of their salary.Once they come back to India they do not get any refund or benefit. Note : A person becomes entitled to the benefit of US social security system after paying taxes for atleast 10 years.
As per NASSCOM , the Indian professionals in US contribute $300 million/year as social security taxes without getting any benefits. As rough estimate Indian companies give $1 billion/year to the US government in the form of social security, with no benefit or prospect of refund.
H1B and L Visa Fee Hike:
US knows that around 12% of VISAs issued every year go to Indians IT pros., so on 5-aug-2010, US Senate increased application fees for H1 B and L visas to earn extra $600 million/year.The Senate measure increases the visa fee to $2,000 per application. As pere NASSCOM this increase would cost Indian firms $200 million extra a year.

So rules/taxes/laws like these are :
1. discriminatory in nature.
2. Don't create an open competitive market(like US wants India to be).

and on the other hands US wants that India should not only open its market but also give benefits to companies like Mcdonald,GE,Pepsi,Coke,Walmart......

Jai Ho Manmohan ji ki...............
