Blogger Buzz: What’s New With Blogger

Google’s blogging service Blogger has been used for over half a billion blog posts (with over half a trillion words in total) to date, product manager Chang Kim on the Blogger Buzz blog.


Those blog posts have been read by 400 million readers across the globe, Kim adds. And according to the video below, 75 percent of traffic comes from outside the United Stats (the service is available in 50 languages).
Now the product is getting an overhaul, the biggest change being a more modern user interface for both the editor and the dashboard (fi-na-lly), built with Google Web Toolkit.

Google says it will be showcasing the new design of the Blogger back-end at SXSW, as well as a new content discovery feature that lets users find new content to read based on the topics of the blog they’re visiting.
It feels good that Google has not forgotten about blogger and is going to bring these changes..!!
Waiting for the overhaul..!!

How net run rate is calculated in cricket??

A team's net run rate is calculated by deducting from the average runs per over scored by that team throughout the competition, the average runs per over scored against that team throughout the competition.

In the event of a team being all out in less than its full quota of overs, the calculation of its net run rate shall be based on the full quota of overs to which it would have been entitled and not on the number of overs in which the team was dismissed.

Note: Any play during a one over per side eliminator is excluded from these calculations.

Only those matches where results are achieved will count for the purpose of net run rate calculations. Where a match is abandoned, but a result is achieved under Duckworth/Lewis, for net run rate purposes, Team 1 will be accredited with Team 2's Par Score on abandonment off the same number of overs faced by Team 2. But where a match is concluded but with Duckworth/Lewis having been applied at an earlier point in the match, Team 1 will be accredited with 1 run less than the final Target Score for Team 2 off the total number of overs allocated to Team 2 to reach the target.

In circumstances where a match (and the points for such match) is awarded to a team as a result of the other team's refusal to play, either by the umpires in accordance with Law 21.3 (a)(ii) or in accordance with the provisions of the relevant event agreements signed by the participating teams, the net run rate of the defaulting team shall be affected in that the full 50 overs of the defaulting team‟s innings in such forfeited match shall be taken into account in calculating the average runs per over of the defaulting team over the course of the relevant portion of the competition. For the avoidance of doubt the runs scored and overs bowled in such forfeited match will not be taken into account when calculating the net run rate of the team to whom the match was awarded.

Patriotism


PATRIOTISM KNOWS NO LANGUAGE. We're a nation of 1.2 billion who speak over 20 languages. If we all love our language to the point of discriminating against others, our tongues will become the swords that'll divide this land. Let us, together, start a movement to celebrate our differences. Please give your opinion, on how we can spread the light of unity. Jai Hind!
