For those who think this is outrageously BS flagging, DL at www.mediafire.com I was stunned to see the Islamic worlds reaction to merely the prospect of burning a Koran or two, I mean damn, its not like its the first time its happened! Anyways, the one that prompted me to weigh in on this was the leader of Indonesia, the largest muslim population country on Earth saying that burning a few Korans was a 'threat to world peace'. You have got to be kidding me! Burning a book, a threat to world peace? This has hypersensitivity written all over it. Anyways, I don't really have time to get involved in it... but I guess my suggestion would be something a little more innocuous, that still involved 'disrespecting' the Koran. I guess my first suggestion would be 'Use a Koran as a Doorstop Day'.

"Champions of the world," top-selling daily El Pais said on its front page above a photo of Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas holding the golden trophy above his head as he stood surrounded by his teammates in Johannesburg. "The national team has consolidated the leadership of a dazzling generation," it added. The newspaper described the 1-0 extra-time win over the Netherlands as the "epic which was missing from Spanish sports, which has lived in glory following a cascade of successes." The victory came exactly a week after the Spaniard Rafael Nadal lifted the Wimbledon tennis trophy and caps a series of major sporting achievements, including a European title for the nation's basketball team. "It is the biggest success in the history of Spanish football, a title which when added to other no less relevant titles, places Spain in the leadership of the major world sports like basketball, tennis, cycling or motorcycle racing," the right-wing ABC newspaper said in an editorial. "From here to eternity," wrote centre-right daily El Mundo on its front page. With four mibutes from the final whistle, Andres Iniesta collected a pass from Cesc Fabregas to fire home from close range and win the World Cup, sparking all-night celebrations across Spain. "There aren't the words to describe what I am feeling. After my goal, I thought about my family and all the people who I love. But the victory is the fruit of a lot of work," the Barcelona midfielder said after the match. Sports daily ...

It's Spain! Psychic Octopus Makes Choice.An apparently psychic octopus has risked the wrath of his fellow countrymen by predicting Spain will beat Germany in the World Cup semi-final The creature, known as Paul, has correctly chosen all of his homeland's results so far. But with one flick of his tentacle - and ignoring Germany's superb form - he has depressed an entire nation by picking their opponents to triumph. Two plastic boxes with the flag of each country on the front had been placed into his tank at the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre. With food in both boxes to attract Paul, it is then a matter of waiting until he opens one of them to determine his predicted winner. On this occasion, he initially went straight for Spain's container.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup is the 19th FIFA World Cup, the premier international association football tournament, being held in South Africa from 11 June to 11 July. It is the first time the finals of the tournament have been staged in an African host nation. South Africa were selected as hosts in May 2004 over Morocco and Egypt, following a bidding process open only to African nations. Held every four years since 1930, the previous World Cup finals were held in 2006 in Germany, while the next World Cup is due to be held in Brazil. The finals tournament sees 736 players representing 32 qualifying teams compete in games held in ten stadia across the country for the World Cup Trophy. The 32 qualifying teams were selected from a pool of entrants comprising 204 of the 208 FIFA national teams, selected for the finals in a qualification process that began in August 2007. With its 204 initial entrants, it equals the 2008 Summer Olympics as the sports event with the most competing nations. The finals began on 11 June with the group stage, in which the 32 qualifying teams were reduced by half by playing in groups of four teams for points over three matches per team. The 16 remaining teams advanced to the knockout stage, beginning on 26 June, which progresses as a single-elimination tournament. Ties after normal time are settled using extra time or a penalty shootout if necessary, up to and including the final match for the Cup, scheduled for 11 July at Soccer City stadium in ...

DVD available at: www.longtailnet.com Tuvalu has the dubious distinction of being the worlds most endangered country, a Pacific Island paradise suffering from the effects of rising sea levels caused by global-warming. Does Tuvalu have a future? Is the rest of the world powerless to help the first victims of a global affliction? In Paradise Drowned we follow a nations plight against the sea. The IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has released a report that that there is absolutely no doubt that the sea will rise about a metre in the next one hundred years because of global warming caused by industrial pollution. Yet many scientists are saying that this is quite wrong and totally misleading. The sea will not rise. This is the dilemma facing this tiny Pacific nation, perhaps the first country in the world to disappear off the face of it as the rest of the world watches. To go or to stay. For the elderly its an easy choice. Its much harder for the young.
