How to add a Menu Navigation Bar with hyper links at the top in a blogger blog with new XML template?

A blog does have a blogger navigation bar at the top but lacks a MENU BAR with links to your own blog or any other link with your own choice links, as we see in many websites.  http://codezila.blogspot.com/

This helps in easy navigation across your blog/site. The reader will have a wide variety of choice and will stay on your site or blog for a longer time. This also helps in categorizing your blog posts according to their category or genre. http://codezila.blogspot.com/

Follow the following steps and its all done... very easy indeed.

  1. Login to your blogger account and go to LAYOUT & then  PAGE ELEMENTS (default) 
  2. Now click on EDIT HTML  and  check " 
  3. Use Browser Text Search Feature using shortcut "Ctrl+F" and type in "Inner layout" to find "/* Inner layout */" inside ""
  4. Paste the following code after "/* Inner layout */" :
  5. /****** Top Navigation ******/
    #topnav {width: 100%; 
       height: 20px;
       text-align: right;
       font-size: 0.7em;
       color: #999999;
       float: right; }
    #topnav img {
       border: none; 
       padding: 5px; }
    /****** Navigation ******/
    #navigation {
       width: 100%;
    url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_3SdVQe5mP8U/Sssg9YVGb_I/AAAAAAAALfE/7QSG50RJYnM/s320/menu_button.JPG) repeat-x;
       height: 35px;

How to add adsense ads just after the post title and after Post Ends in blogs.

It is always beneficial to show the ads just after the post title before the real content starts. But by default the ads are shown either in the sidebar or after the comment link at the bottom of the post. So many a time your visitors did not even give a look to the ads which is not desirable.

So what to do to make the adsense ads come just after the post Title and at the post bottom before the Comments or reaction buttons or anything else.

Follow the following steps and its all done... very easy indeed.

  1. Login to your blogger account and go to LAYOUT >> PAGE ELEMENTS (default) 
  2. Click on EDIT in BLOG POSTS (a pop-up window "configure blog posts" will open)
  3. Check the radio button  "SHOW ADS BETWEEN POSTS" at the last of "Post Page Option" in the pop-up.
  4. Scroll down and click on Ok (you can edit the colour of the ad displayed, its better to match the ad colour to your blog colour especially ad background and border must be same as blog background colour)
  5. Save the template by clicking on the BLUE button at the top right.
  6. Now click on EDIT HTML >> check " 
  7. Use Browser Text Search Feature using shortcut "Ctrl+F" and type in "adcode" to find <adcode> just after the comment section.
  8. Then add "!" before adcode like <!--adcode--> (this makes the defalut adcode as a comment for the browser and it will ignore it while interpreting the codes)
  9. Then Find  "<data:post.body/>" using "Ctrl+F".
  10. After and Before "<data:post.body/>" paste this code:
  11. Save the Template. Its All Done. Now after every each post title your ad will be shown and at the bottom also. To edit the type of ad size and colour see point 4. But its better to use a square size ad format.
  12. Best of Luck. Happy earning.
NOTE: Always Save your template before editing your HTML codes.

Bad News for Pet Lover: Be Careful MCD to seize and sell lost pets

Next time your pet dog, cat, birds, etc, is found abandoned or roaming in any public place or public land, MCD can impound them and sell them to recover the cost of removing and feeding if the amount is not paid by the owner within seven days. http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/

Under MCDs proposed pet policy to be tabled in the standing committee for approval on Wednesday the civic body has the right to do so under section 418 of the Delhi Municipal Corporation Act, 1957, which pertains to seizure of certain animals. http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/
The proposed policy also elaborates on the rules and regulations for issuing licenses to pet shops which are functioning without one so far. As per section 418, if a horse, cattle or quadruped animals or birds are found abandoned and roaming or tethered on any street or public place, MCD officials can impound the animal and remove it to a place earmarked by the civic agency. The cost of impounding the animals or birds and feeding them will be recovered by auctioning them off. http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/

The owner of the animal or bird should come forward to claim them within seven days of the seizure, and will have to pay us the cost incurred by us in impounding the animal and in feeding it, an MCD official said. The civic agency is formulating a licencing policy for pet shops to regulate privately operating individual /groups selling pet animals. The aim is to ensure animals are adequately supplied with food and water, are not sold at a tender age and all reasonable precautions are taken to prevent unnatural death. http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/

Is India ready to become the Biggest Economy of the World? Please Donate to Help stop Child Labour

We all know India is growing at an extensive speed, giving birth to a lot of entrepreneurs and Business Tycoons. Our Status and reputation are gaining strength in the World. In every Aspect we are developing but still Vision 2020 of Dr.Kalam can not be achieved unless we reduce the gap between these two positions:

.Photo: by Shelton Muller

At an age when she should be visiting school and learning, she is earning livelihood for herself and her family. Showing her extraordinary skills of balancing on rope she manage to earn Rs.100 a day from the offerings from the passing buyers on the road side of PUSHKAR. Though she can make her carrier and future in Gymnasium and may bring back some medals for the country, but who has time to look into it. Every one is busy and counting there own lot. Even Govt. approaches them only when they seems to be a potential vote bank. http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/
Still the no of Child Labours in India is at an alarming level. Sparing some pennies from our daily extravagance like an ice-cream or just a cigarette we can help them shape their future.If we want to see India at the apex we need to change ourself.  Those pennies may not count for you but meant a lot for those whose daily earning is less then $1. http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/

After 6 decades of Independence child labour exists and we think we are developing. These Kids did not ask for a laptop or an ice-cream but there age needs a nourishment for their Mind and Body. They are the one which can shape the future and image of India. Govt is trying a lot for them, providing basic schooling and even mid-day meals and school dress completely free to attract them to attend classes, but what really approaches them is not hidden from anyone. The corruption is present at every level. Despite the numerous promises and provisions made by the Indian government, the state of many of the country's children continues to be pitiable. Statistics reveal that there are close to 13 million child laborers, about 3 to 5 lakh children are forcibly engaged in prostitution and at least 18 million children live on the streets in India. Coupled with child abuse and poverty figures, the picture is far from pretty. A little help on your part can bring these numbers down! http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/

We need to change it, It is the responsibility of every Indian to ask and check the status and condition of such schools and to contribute to shape the life of these 'to be futures' of India.

BCCI reserve price for the bidding of Team Indias jersey logo sponsorship in Crores

How much Twenty20 is popular and Money maker for BCCI can be guessed by this article printed in todays Times Of India (Delhi). The Day is not far when BCCI's wealth can be compared to Some wealthy Footbal clubs in the world. And why not if the craze for cricket is among 1,00,00,00,000 Indian alone much more than whole Footbal Fans in the world, if i'm not wrong...please dont mind if i've over-estimated. But Really Saying this is called Money Making...

Team India Rocks... Jai Ho

Article as In Today's TIMES OF INDIA (Delhi):

by: Indranil Basu | TNN [TOI]

The Board of Control for Cricket in India has put Twenty20 on a par with ODIs and Tests while setting the reserve price for the bidding of Team Indias jersey logo sponsorship. Sources said the board is asking for a minimum bid of Rs 3 crore for each Test, ODI or T20 game, showing the growing commercial value of T20 matches. http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/
Four years ago, the base price was Rs 90 lakh for an ODI match and Rs 1 crore for a Test. T20 didnt even have a market. But in the last two and-a-half years, the valuation of logo sponsorship in a T20 game has caught up with those of Tests and ODIs.
The hike in reserve price could put bidders in a tizzy. It has already put present sponsor Sahara in two minds.

Asking Rate

BCCI seeking Rs 3 crore for each Test, ODI and T20 match Four years ago, the base price was Rs 90 lakh for an ODI and Rs 1 crore for a Test At Rs 800cr, deal could be worth more than Manchester Uniteds Rs 650cr deal for 4 yrs.  http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/

Govt Financial grants for Basic Science Research open to MSc and Phd students by Union science and technology ministry for a period of 2 years.

The Centre is to hand out a two-year financial dole to fresh science graduates to help them continue higher studies and thus stop the decline in basic science researchhttp://hallosushant.blogspot.com/
The project of the Union science and technology ministry will be open to MSc and Phd students. The grant is intended to instil confidence among students to take up basic sciences, science and technology department.

An unemployed MSc or Phd basic science student can write a proposal to the department of science and technology on any project that would have useful results — either in terms of a product or in terms of enhanced knowledge, or new formulations in basic sciences. The proposal is evaluated by experts, and if okayed, the student gets the grant for two years. http://hallosushant.blogspot.com/

Students may not want to do an MSc or Phd in basic sciences, fearing they won’t land jobs. This hits research in basic sciences as well as the student ratio and strength. If there is some sort of security and an assured financial support period, students would feel confident to take up MSc or Phd in basic sciences.

The ministry is planning an awareness drive across the country on the science allowance. ‘‘Not many students are aware of the plan for basic sciences. We plan to go region-wise. There need be no fear about proposals being rejected. Keeping in mind the need to encourage basic science students, we have brought down the rejection rate. More students can now get grants,’’ said the official.
The grant expires after two years, and will be offered to a fresh batch of students — thus rotated every two years. The ministry is of the view that two years is adequate time for a student to find a job and that other students would be waiting for financial help.
‘‘The money coming from the DST is good and will be enough to help the student coast through a year or two. We expect a student to come up with a project that would be job-enabling, as experience on the project would count in job offers. The good thing is that students would not be penniless for the two-year period. The science ministry takes care of the student until he or she finds a job,’’ the official said.
