Curious As To Why Google Picked ‘Whitechapel’ As The Codename For Its New Cell Phone Processor.

Yes, Google very definitely is an International entity, BUT I don’t think it has any particular or special affiliation or connection with London or even the U.K. So, why ‘Whitechapel’?

Yes, it might have been for the band. Possible.

Why am I intrigued. For us Brits ‘Whitechapel’ has certain definite connotations, chief among them ‘Jack the Ripper‘! Was that it? Nothing wrong. New processor is likely to be a RIPPER. If so rather cute & clever. There is also the Bangladeshi connection & it is possible that the Google team may have some of those as key team members.

I would love to know. I would love to be able to Google it. SMILE.

ICC Should Take Religion Out Of Cricket — Forthwith.

by Anura Guruge

Keep religion God out of cricket Anura Guruge
Click to ENLARGE.

Watch the start of this YouTube video — 0:39 second mark.

And you will see what I am getting at.

Check YouTube for any and all videos from 2017 involving the Pakistan or Bangladesh teams.

Cricket has a wonderful camaraderie, exemplary behavior on the field and a very precise, and clear ‘Code of Conduct’ that makes sure that it remains THE sport of gentlemen and ladies.

In spirit of the multicultural, multiethnic and MULTIRELIGIOUS nature of cricket — even with the SAME team, e.g., Sri Lanka — we should take religion out of cricket.

I am talking ALL religions. I, as many know, am totally areligious — a reformed, born-again heathen. I have no axe to grind against any religion. I respect those of all religions but prefer if they kept their religion to themselves.

I really do NOT think God or gods play any role in cricket!

IF God chose who wins the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 how come the Israelites didn’t play cricket thousands of years ago.

IF you are an avid cricket fan YOU KNOW what I am talking about — and yes, the above YouTube video spells it all out.

DO NOT get me wrong. I like Pakistanis and Bangladeshis. Some of my abiding cricket heroes are from Pakistan … Imran, Zaheer, Intikhab.

IF the truth be known I am very fond of Sarfraz Ahmed. I root for him, always. I am glad they won. They sure played one heck of a match. But, hearing ALL of them, on rote, claim that this was all due to “All mighty …” irks me. When they beat Australia, how do you think Steve Smith felt when he was subjected to that. Same God.

I never believed God picked sides in wars and always found in amusing that both the Allies and the Germans were constantly praying to the same God asking for the other side to be vanquished.

So, that is it ….

Lets just UPDATE our glorious ‘Code of Conduct’ to include that captains and players cannot reference any religions and religious figures during any public appearances.

Google Disappoints Sri Lanka Once More — No Google Doodle For 2017 Avurudu (Sinhala New Year).

by Anura Guruge

Click to ENLARGE.

I have been keeping an eye for the last few hours. Checked a few minutes ago at 9:10pm U.S. Eastern time. It was 6:40am on Friday, April 14, 2017.

So, well into the morning in Sri Lanka so to speak. Avurudu is well underway.

They have been hoping for an Avurudu Google Doodle for years after I managed to get the very first Doodle for Independence Day in 2013.

But they have yet to do one for New Year or Vesak.

Ironically, to add salt to the wound, they do New Year Doodles for Thailand and Bangladesh who also celebrate more or less on the same day.

Well, there is always next year.

Happy New Year, irrespective.
