Artistic Pool and Trick Shot Competition Disciplines

Casual trick shot artists often have a few jaw-dropping trick shots up their sleeve. Using a cue stick and perhaps some props, he or she can force the billiard balls to move in seemingly physics-defying motions. However, professional trick shot artists or artistic pool players practice more than just a couple setup shots and skill shots. Competition requires them to master an arsenal of tricks that are divided into eight shot disciplines or categories — trick and fancy, prop/novelty/special arts, draw, follow, bank/kick, stroke, jump, and masse.

Trick and Fancy: In general, these shots are setup shots, meaning the multiple billiard balls are arranged in a specific manner such that a single cue stroke can pocket all the pool balls. A popular trick and fancy shot is the Just Showing Off shot.

Prop, Novelty, and Special Arts: Also known as the general amusement category, these shots are a mix of shots that use props such as the rack or bridge, require multiple balls to be shot within a short period of time (speed shots), rely on shooting balls with one hand, or contain some other criteria. A well known the Over and Under shot.

Draw: The basic premise of the draw shot is to hit the cue ball below center to give it some backspin. These shots require the cue ball to return towards the shooter after colliding with the object ball. The Cowboy Jimmy Moore Circular Draw shot is often seen on television competitions.

Follow: Follow shots are the reverse of the draw shots. The cue ball is hit above the center so topspin propels the ball along its original path after striking the object ball. An example of this type of shot is Hug the Rail.

Bank/Kick: In bank shots, the object ball has to hit at least one rail before sinking into a pocket. Kick shots, on the other hand, require the cue ball to hit a rail before contacting the object ball. One especially famous shot is the Hustler Bank, which was made popular in the opening scene of the movie The Hustler.

Stroke: Mastering any trick shot requires a good stroke or good technique, but the shots in the stroke category are particularly challenging and test both technique and control. In some of these shots, the cue ball is very close or even frozen (touching) the object ball. The (Hundred) Dollar Bill shot, which is used as a tie-breaker in ESPN’s Trick Shot Magic, is an example of a stroke shot.

Jump: In the jump category, the cue ball usually jumps over an obstructing pool ball, but they can also jump directly into another ball, creating unusual or surprising results. This discipline is one of the more exciting disciplines to watch. The One Handed Jump is very impressive.

Masse: Perhaps the most unbelievable category, masse shots involving putting an extraordinary amount of spin on the cue ball so that it moves along a curved path. This discipline is arguably the most difficult artistic pool discipline to master. A crowd favorite masse shot is the Rocket Masse.

Once you’ve mastered several shots from each of these categories, why not test out the competition circuit? There are several professional and amateur trick shot competitions held every year for you to compete in or just to watch.

A Passage to London

A passage to London this Fall

Like many other big cities in the first world countries, London can be described as a global village with enormous influx of immigrants and attractions to blend of cultures. Perhaps the paramount description it may imply as one of the world’s leading financial centers, great railway systems and its global position to various disciplines is the flaming experience that makes the city of London a magnet to all peoples. It is, however, one of the defining reasons that provides a surge of pride and delight to anyone who finds a path around the regimen of British relationship with cultures they represent.

I came to London this mid of October 2009 with excitement and a sustained challenge from my continuing interest to see and experience life’s movements in the city. This was actually my second time to visit this place since I first came here in July 2001. It was as much a conclusion as a beginning, a significant holiday at fall and a tale of adventures suffused with color and learning experience.

The nursery rhyme song ‘London Bridge is Falling Down’ was an enduring reminder for me as I always thought of England’s richness in history, culture, art, music, literature, and other disciplines. The local Briton accent with that fusion of Cockney Rhyming was something that really fascinated me as if they spoke with reverence in each word. Shakespearean plays portrayed in theaters catapulted be back on stage to reminisce how the performers articulated their lines. I also had the opportunity to visit anew some historical landmarks considered as major sights in the city. These are the following: Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace, Changing the Guard, Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral. There are also other attractions such as Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace, Queen’s House, St James’s Palace, London Dungeon, London Planetarium, London Zoo, Madame Tussaud’s and other Museums and Art Galleries.

An English friend of mine who lives in London accompanied me to see other places like the Canary Wharf which is the tallest building in England, the Covent Garden Piazza, the Piccadilly Circus and of course, the Trafalgar Square where we took a score of pictures. Along with that, we also came to see the Bank of England, London Stock Exchange, and Lloyds of London insurance market. One thing that impressed me while traveling the city is the London Underground. I found it as the best public transport with extensive networks to other places nationwide. I also found that there was a high-speed Eurostar trains that link St Pancras International Station with Lille, Paris, and Brussels which only takes 2 hours and 15 minutes. It was really amazing to know how London Transport could draw tourists from across the world, along with those red double-decker buses, black cabs and the modern tram network known as Tramlink, based around Croydon in South London.

It was very convenient for us to go from one place to another as London Transport was like a split second and you are already there. Trains run every 15 minutes. I remember when I landed in Heathrow Airport, I took the Piccadilly Line tube, got off Hammersmith (District Line) and took Victoria Line that passed through Stockwell and got off Oval which was just a walking distance to Brixton Road where I stayed. Travel cards were necessary to get about in different parts of London. Ticket offices or self-service machines were available in most stations. Trains ran starting as early as 5:30 a.m. till 1:00 a.m. on week nights. The only choice beyond all-night transport was night bus or cab. Usually most buses passed through Trafalgar Square which was like the point of reference when one was not sure which bus to get. The traditional London black cabs reminded me of cars driven for funerals with a sign For Hire and a white license plate on the back.

Perhaps the climate for concerts and musical events in the Royal Albert Hall or Cadogan Hall was one of my regrets for not being able to see one of them, along with entertainment around Leicester Square or to the first and original Hard Rock Cafe and Abbey Road Studios where The Beatles recorded many of their songs. I did not have time though to watch and visit these places. However, I was able to walk through Chinatown district (in Soho) with my English friend and dined in one of the Chinese Buffet restaurants.

Lovely windows for shopping spree especially on Oxford Street where I found so many shops and department stores that somehow reminded me of signature products for fashion accessories and other stuffs that came from across the world.

The high-rise buildings like the 1980s skyscraper Tower 42, the Lloyd’s building, the «Gherkin», One Canada Square and the BT Tower in Fitzrovia were characterized with certain architectural styles and for me they evoked another meaning to symbolize the height of anyone’s aspiration to reach his vertical mobility in life. As a visionary and drawn to stand up against injustice, I had that inner return to the power beyond – God. I was humbled with these buildings towering over me. I thought it was another world, another bustling city suffused with material wealth and luxury. I had a good time seeing these attractions but with a deep sense of sanctuary within, I came to recall the horrors of Sept. 11, 2001 when the Twin Towers in New York were attacked by terrorists. Yet it was still vivid for many Americans especially those families and friends of the victims.

While sightseeing was the driving rhythm in my mobility around the city, this statement somehow led me to further reflection: ‘if necessity is the mother of invention, then it would seem that a recession, when needs abound, might push people to embrace innovation.’ And it’s true as economy crawled into another episode to embrace the challenges ahead. At least the main thing that could be done was to envision the country’s great strength in certain areas as a source of power and inspiration to others. Like a book which is on the must-read list for anyone who appreciates history, culture, geography, or social development at any level in society, a rewarding account of public transport in London allowed me to go to places where I wanted to go. That was a positive response to my immediate need to explore the city. In this case though, I was able to take a giant step back and assess how I am reacting to places I had visited.

From the earliest days of my insertion to another culture since I left my home country in the late 80s to the events of today, my real goal has been to build bridges of opportunities for a continuing growth as a human person, to be open to the historical movements of various peoples across continents and nationalities, to give reason to hope and understand our sense of interconnectedness. And these generally require the ups and downs of life, human claims to acceptance and sacrifice. As Frederick Douglas once said, ‘if there is no struggle there can be no progress.’ And I think it could be better known for saying that life and traveling can be equated with this expression, » you never know.»

Having gone through the ebbs and flows, the wefts and warps, and the prism of human needs, in my own little way, my mantra still remains the same. And that’s basically to think beyond mere platitudes for meaningful answers to what the future holds. My interactions with various cultures and the role that I have to play especially in times of difficulties draws me to find that constant need for discovery. Countless situations have given me the possibilities to discern and integrate my faith principles to that continuing pursuit of my life.

As a mental compass focused on my visit in London, I thought of a similar spark of human vulnerability and the great deal of having a vision and priorities at hand. It was clear, though, that the new wave of modern technology and the entry of moral values into the labor market are slowly changing our understanding of what is essential in this world and who we are as individuals in conversation with the world today. I came to brace for further failures in my life but still I continued to hope with a new eye for progress. And that was like a cyclical nature of being human trying to avoid chronology but allowing God’s time to lead me.

London’s many facets evoked some images of truth and beauty which enabled me to reflect on life’s legendary wisdom of pains and joys, successes and failures. Each of them was like a memorial marker with some spectacular past and poignant memories. My own life had that moral comparison, too. With history and story to tell, with values and traditions, with a sense of identity, purpose, and meaning, indeed, they were like my memorial markers defined in the mystery of being human. The depth it symbolized was a measure of a flaming heart. It was like a source of strengthening, an impetus to witness to others as life goes on. Samuel Johnson once said, ‘if you’re tired of London, you’re tired of life.’ And I think he makes sense as he gave us his memory a jog.

What Are Mortgage Brokers And Why To Use One

«Mortgage» is formed from two words: the French word «mort» meaning «dead» and the word «gage» from Old English meaning «pledge». Sir Edward Coke (who lived from 1552 to 1634) explained the term: the land as considered «dead» to the mortgagor, as if the person never had it.

Today, the term mortgage is used for a loan for purchasing propriety. The most common

mortgages are the home mortgages. It is not common to pay cash a home today. The

«life’ of a home mortgage is from 20 to 30 years. During all this years, the owner will pay

regularly and with the specified amount. There is also a term for the interest rate,

established to respect the seller and also the buyer conditions.

Most people think at a bank when thinking at a mortgage. It is the most trustful way to

get a mortgage; even the banks are asking the most rigorous set of documents to approve

it. The stability has its price: banks don’t give the best interest rate, but there is also the

possibility to negotiate for the best acceptable solution.

Pertinent information empowers the burrower with the knowledge to make appropriate

decisions for his family and themselves.

The banks are making their money from activities like mortgage, so there will be always

good solutions for everyone. People can «shop around» to find the best mortgage

condition.

What are the mortgage brokers? They are making all the legwork for the customer.

Specialized websites are offering «perfect loan programs» in a few minutes. A

professional research must be made to find the appropriate opportunity to buy the house

of our dreams.

Financial brokerage is a licensed company or individual who obtains a loan for borrowers

by selecting the best available solution at the best available rate. Real estate brokers help

borrowers to get a loan in accordance with their needs, making in the same time a

profitable investment for the financial brokerage or lender. All the work can be done

online, leading to a fast win-win situation for all.

The load mortgage broker has a professional expertise with direct access to many loan

products, providing customers efficient and cost-effective options that are meeting their

specific needs. He will provide customers with choice, convenience and expertise.

A good broker is the customer’s mentor, guiding him to the entire loaning process,

balancing the client’s financial goals, offering extensive choices.

A professional mortgage broker is using loan packages with less than perfect credit histories,

permitting to his customers to enjoy the benefits of home-ownership.

A mortgage broker isn’t a banker, neither another financial lender. He is (or must be) a

real estate professional offering products and services. A broker can act as a banker too,

when funding loans.

Maybe the best part of a home mortgage broker activity is the help he is giving in

assessing the requirements and saving the customers time. Having contact with many

banks they can offer advices on the ways to overcome the frontiers to loan qualification.

A mortgage broker also knows the laws and regulations, simplifying the borrowers’ task.

He is taking the application and obtains the credit report and appraisal. He counsels the

customer on the approval process; obtain the credit report and appraisal, collecting the

necessary documents. He also provides separate services and facilities to wholesale

lenders; market the lender’s product also. Mortgage broker also is assembling and

delivering the completed loan package.

The mortgage broker really cares about the quality of the loan; the safety and soundness

of the mortgage lending community is linked to the success and efficiency of its home

loan originations. Consumers who exercise their choice choose mortgage brokers because

they are dedicated to their customers, who are the consumers, and in the same time the

wholesale lenders.

May the broker steer consumers to the lender who pays the highest fees to the broker?

Isolated instances of steer can occur, but the free-market economy is protecting the

customer giving him a powerful weapon: the vigorous open competition. Each consumer

can shop and compare the prices; his final option will lead him to the best solution. The

level of choices has no precedent.

Soccer Psychology – The Difference Between Winning and Losing

In today’s game of soccer most would argue that the most important person in a team is the coach. But a new position has arisen from the depths of the grandstand and his importance has significantly increased. Can you guess who it is?

Big clubs all over the world are employing Sports psychologists for help and some have even put them on as full time staff. Sports psychology has become the next boom industry as clubs and coaches have discovered the power of soccer psychology.

The difference between winning and losing at the highest level can be separated by a thin white line. All players are extremely fit, skillful, strong and quick. But how many players are confident and mentally strong? Clubs have discovered this and have added psychology to their growing list of weapons.

Players these days have pushed their physical capabilities to the limit and the competitive edge has virtually flattened out. That’s until mental warfare stepped in with the arrival of soccer psychology.

Science has proven that psychology and the right mindset influences and improves soccer performance. Sports psychology also identifies weaknesses and offers counseling to players who might be suffering from a lack of confidence and low self-esteem. They can also monitor motivational levels within a team and assess the whole team on an individual basis.

Soccer psychologists can also identify the different personalities within the team and ensure that these personalities don’t clash and work together. Remember, a champion team will always beat a team of champions. Soccer psychologists make the transition from a team to a championship team look very simple. By correcting the mindset of the players and increasing the player’s confidence the dream of winning silverware becomes a reality.

Soccer over the years has claimed its fair share of victims. Players that have lost all confidence and cannot perform at the levels required have inevitably been shown the door at their respective clubs. How can we stop this? Most players that have lost their confidence also suffer from low self esteem. With low self esteem comes the nerves and anxiety. If you have this problem within your team, the use of a soccer psychologist will solve all your problems. They will help your players relax and also use mental imagery to build on their shattered confidence without even touching a soccer ball.

Sports psychology has been directly linked to team spirit. The greater the team spirit, the greater chance you have of winning trophies. That’s why we see the smaller clubs of Europe beating some of the heavy weights in the champion’s league. Are the players better at the smaller clubs? Or do they have team spirit? From watching the champion’s league, it’s clearly evident what the smaller clubs lack in talent they make up in spirit and confidence.

The main purpose of psychology in soccer is to prevent the players feeling like failures when they lose. By eliminating this feeling, psychologists are protecting the players self esteem. Could self esteem and confidence be the secret ingredient all the big clubs share?

United Is On First Place Since Chelsea Restrained City

After its fifth draw in the season, Manchester City had to give away the 1st position of the table to their nemesis, Manchester United, which defeated the unfortunate QPR.

Two weekends ago, after the blasting 5-0 result Manchester City let fall on Aston Villa, the reigning king climbed to the first position of the standings after five weeks alternating between the 2nd and 3rd place. City was back on the throne for the first time in the season. However after their meeting on Sunday with the European Champion, Chelsea, the Citizens couldn’t keep the leading seat, for Manchester United, which was stalking them a point behind, beat the Queens Park Rangers the day before.

On Saturday the Rangers travelled north to face the Red Devils at the Old Trafford, where as expected the hosts win, and not so much that they had to bear a goal from the visitors. At 51 minutes of the match, QPR opened the scoreboard with a close range shot from Jamie Mackie, not too elaborated, still as exciting for the Londoners as if it would’ve, for it raised hopes of a first triumph for the club. Because until now the Rangers have only reach 4 ties and suffered 9 fatal defeats, which have put them on the bottom of the table, in urgent need of a miracle to leave the relegation zone.

Unfortunately for Harry Redknapp’s side, the Red Devils didn’t stay too long in disadvantage and really soon riddled Julio Cesar’s goal, exactly three scores within 4-minutes-intervals. The first one arrived at 64′ through a corner from Rooney that got headed by Danny Welbeck into Jonny Evans way, who scored his third goal in the season. Darren Fletcher goals’ drought finished at 68′, when again resulting from a corner from Rooney Fletcher caught the ball from afar and with a left kick sent the ball into the Hoop’s goal. The final bullet came through a shot from the Mexican Javier Hernandez at 72′. Subsequent to the 3-1, both clubs had some nice shots to score, but none could convert them.

With the 3 points earned on Saturday by United, Barclays had a new leader and the Sky Blues knew they had to win their 13th round fixture on the next day in order to recover the first spot; nonetheless the rival awaiting was a tougher one than United’s.

Inverse to his Manchester neighbour, City went south to London to face the Pensioners at Stamford Bridge, and as expected was quite challenging for both clubs. For Rafael Benitez, Chelsea’s brand new coach, it was an influential encounter, for it was his very first game since he got signed as interim manager of the Blues, in replacement of Roberto di Matteo. Because of the dislikes from many local supporters it was especially important for the Spaniard to make a good job on this first match at home.

Things started up relatively balanced and through all the game both sides kept it that way: in constant search for a goal and good defence. City had some good chances to score during the first-half; with opportunities from Pablo Zabaleta, Aleksandar Kolarov and James Milner. But with help mostly from Ashley Cole and Cesar Azpilicueta, Petr Cech was able to protect the Blues goal. The most obvious chance to untied was lost by Sergio Aguero, a few minutes before half time, when from close range and totally alone in the area, the Argentinean sent the ball straight to Cech.

In second half the hosts got more active and started to create more opportunities to score, among the players attacking Joe Hart’ goal were Juan Mata, Emboaba Oscar and Matija Nastasic. But the Citizens’ defence was alert and didn’t allow itself a single mistake. In the end it was more of a sober match, because even though both teams did great in defence, the highlights didn’t really count with surprising moves or plays honestly the match deserved the 0-0 final score.

Now the Citizens, which continue undefeated, are in second place with 29 points, following the Red Devils just one point behind. City’s next chance to climb back to the top might arrive the coming Wednesday 28th, when the two clubs from Manchester will have the 14th fixture. While United will held its 7th home game, this time against West Ham (8th), City will go west to visit Wigan (15th).

New to London – Where to Stay

London is one big town with plenty to do. So where to stay to get the most out of London?

Personally, I strongly suggest staying around a zone 2 area. For the benefit of those who don’t know what this means – I am referring to the zones in the London transport system, specifically the trains or the tube as its commonly known.

So, lets begin. Firstly, to get our bearings of the city, let us understand the places of work in London. The common areas where you will probably work in London could be anywhere between Hammersmith in the West to Aldgate in the East to Baker Street in the North. If you are working in Finance or Banking than there is a high probability that you will be working in Canary Wharf (in the east).

Secondly, places to party / theatre / and awesome nights out would be: Green Park, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square & Covent Garden.

Thirdly, primary shopping spot – for the fashion slaves, London’s main shopping strip is Oxford Street between Bond St and Oxford Circus.

So here are list of my fav areas for each direction on the compass with approx weekly rent per person:

North

£150 – 175 per person / per week

Swiss Cottage – nice area, not many pubs or spots for night out but very convenient

West Hampstead – next to Swiss Cottage, great local spots at West End Lane

Finchley Road – very very convienient for commuting to the airports for weekend getaways, close to a shopping centre (the O2) and close to the local drinking spots in West Hampstead.

A lot of young professional people living in these areas.

£130 – 160 per person / per week

Angel – eclectic, a lot of bars and places to hang out. A bit like Newtown in Sydney.

West

£160 – 200+ per person / per week

Posh posh posh.

Notting Hill – famous from the movie, host a carnival every year. Great market and a good vibe

Bayswater – Convenient, close to Notting Hill and a little cheaper than Notting Hill

South

£160 – 180 per person / per week

Victoria Station – the famous station. Super convenient, close to theatres and the West End / Piccadilly Circus / Greenpark (London’s nightlife hub)

£140ish

Pimlico – nice area, close to Victoria station. Some spots might have some views towards Waterloo / the Parliament.

East

In the old days the East would be a no go zone. Now its been re-vamped with plenty of new apartments around / high rises and modern places, very convient for the banking and finance folks who work in Canary Wharf.

Prices Vary. Areas to consider:

Canada Water

Canary Wharf

Limehouse

So, where to stay? Well when I was in London, I worked at Bank, Canary Wharf and Aldgate East (all towards the East) but stayed in West Hamstead / Finchley Rd / Swiss Cottage. I loved it – price was reasonable, good gentry, close to London’s West End and so easy to travel over the weekends with great bus services to the airports.

Paul McCartney – The Beatles – A Biography

James Paul McCartney was born on June 18, 1942 in Liverpool. He was the first son of Mary and James McCartney. His brother, Peter Michael McCartney, was born eighteen months later. Paul’s mother was a midwife, who died from breast cancer in 1955 when Paul was just 14, this troubled Paul deeply. Paul’s father was a cotton salesman during the day for A. Hannay Co., and a jazz musician with Jim Mac’s Jazz Band at night. Paul did very well in school. He passed his 11-Plus examination in 1957 and entered the Liverpool Institute, a very popular high school. There, he met a younger student by the name of George Harrison whom Paul later brought with him into John’s group, The Quarrymen. As a child, Paul showed no particular interest in music. Both he and his brother were sent to piano lessons, but these didn’t last long. Then he was given a trumpet by an uncle, and he began to teach himself. His musical talent probably came from his father. Of all The Beatles, Paul’s family was the only one with any musical background or interest. At the Liverpool Institute, Paul became popular. His dealings with young girls, however, had little effect on his grades. He was a top student, but he soon found that school was interfering with his social life. Like John and the others, Paul was influenced by early rock songs. Still, it was Elvis that formed the greatest impression on him. Paul first met John through a mutual friend, Ivan Vaughan. Vaughan invited Paul to see The Quarrymen play at the Wooton Parish. c The Quarrymen, and Paul accepted. Paul’s first public performance with The Quarrymen was at a dance at the Conservative Club in Broadway. Paul was supposed to play a solo that night, but for some reason, he never did. What he did do after the dance was play John some songs that he had written himself. John was impressed and later tried to write songs of his own. Neither wrote anything of much value, but the two began collaborating, each egging the other on to better works. From that day until the end of The Beatles, they never stopped, and together they became «Lennon & McCartney,» one of the most renowned song writing duos of the twentieth century. Once they had become established songwriters, Paul and John would often write independently of one another. John’s songs were more raw rock ‘n’ roll, while Paul’s tended to be more romantic. Songs like «Yesterday,» «Michelle,» and «Lovely Rita» are typical McCartney songs. An early agreement between Paul and John assured that all Beatle songs that either wrote would bear the trademark of «Lennon & McCartney.» Paul met Jane Asher at a pop concert at Albert Hall. She was then seventeen. The Radio Times asked her to go along to the concert to give her impressions of The Beatles. After the concert, she was invited back to their hotel for a drink. That night Paul and Jane spent the evening together. «I realized she was the girl for me,» Paul once said. Jane, however, summed up her impression of the boys by exclaiming, «They couldn’t believe I was a virgin. » Paul wanted Jane to give up acting to be with him constantly. She refused. This led to a number of arguments, but Paul was still attracted to her. It was for Jane Asher that he wrote «I’m Looking Through You» and «And I Love Her.» Marriage seemed inevitable, and on Christmas Day, 1967, Paul asked Jane to be his wife. She accepted (Bio..)(Paul Mc…)

In 1969 rumors started to spread that Paul was dead. Rumors of the death were exaggerated. No one knows for sure where the «Paul is Dead» rumor began. Some rumors were spread that Paul had been dead for three years and that he had been replaced by a look a like. Beatles fans everywhere looked for clues that were left intentionally in lyrics, record covers and pictures that would reveal the truth about the hoax.

The idea that Paul McCartney was dead for three years surfaced during the release of Abbey Road in September of 1969. The first indications of the hoax were printed in two Midwestern College newspapers (Iowa’s Drake University Times-Delphic and Northern Illinois University’s Northern Star). Russel Gibb, a Detroit radio jock for WKNR FM read about the story in the college newspaper articles and invented new «clues» for listeners. Listeners called the radio station and claimed to be able to hear secret messages by playing Revolution #9 and other songs backwards. A walrus is a Greek symbol for death. In the song Glass Onion, John Lennon sings, «well here’s another clues for you all, the walrus is Paul,» which connected Paul to his «death».

According to one myth. Paul left the recording studio in anger, following a fight with the rest of the group. Paul stormed out of the studio, jumped into his car and sped off (I Buried P…). All of the clues point to a car accident that reportedly happened prior to Paul leaving the studio in anger. On November 10, 1966 a British newspaper reported that on Wednesday morning at five o’clock someone was involved in a car accident, according to the newspaper the accident was so bad that the body could not be identified in any way. In A Day In The Life, John Lennon sings, «he blew his mind out in a car, he didn’t notice that the light had changed, a crowd of people stood and stared, they’d seen his face before, nobody was really sure if he was from the house of god (in the song god sounds like Paul)(I Buried P…)

Many visual clues were on the Abbey Road LP. The media began reporting the joke as a fact as soon as it was released. The rumors began to grow larger. In October of 1969 McCartney himself made a public appearance in which he stated the breaking up of The Beatles. In a 1970 Rolling Stone interview with John Lennon, Lennon was asked if any of the hidden clues were supposed to have any meaning. Lennon replied, «No. That was bull. The whole thing was made up.»

The Beatles enjoyed attention. They were jokers; maybe they were just having a little fun with their fans. Some people today still believe that Paul is dead because of the many convincing clues. No evidence shows that any of the members were behind the hoax. No one can prove that it did or didn’t happen. The fact of the matter is that Paul is alive today. He is currently married to an ex-model. He is touring the concert world. And he is still a Living legend.

Liverpool’s Preparation – Next Season

I think you all who are a Liverpool’s fan already know that Liverpool has a serious problem about their scorer. Almost in every game they had really good system and position, everything in the match always great except the striker.

Although, Dirk Kuyt ,Peter Crouch , Craig Bellamy or even Robbie Fowler had paticipated the game very well but they always loss the chance to score. When the goal was not coming, the pressure normally came to the player. The pressure will effected to decision of the player. The result is the play produce more mistakes and their rival use this mistake as opportunities to bring Liverpool down. No matter how strong Liverpool defender could be, it is not important if they can not score.

Liverpool will always have victory if they have the first goal. In other word, they always defeated when they loss the first goal to the rival. Eventhough, Rafael Benitez has incredible brain to solve any problem in every situation but the key is the players not the manager. I had been waited Liverpool to buy new striker so long time but he still not come for now.

However, I think Liverpool has fitting red engine in the middle area on the squad. Steven Gerrard and Xavi Alonso are do well in their position. Furthermoe, Javier Mascherano coming is a appropriate combination. During the close of this season I hope Liverpool will approach another striker to improve their weakness.

Now I prefer English Premier League more than UEFA Champion League.

Derby Della Madonnina

Derby della Madonnina, as known as the Milan Derby between AC Milan and Internazionale, is one of the most high-tempered local derby in football world.

It is called «Derby della Madonnina» in honour of one of the main sights of the city of Milan, the statue of the virgin Mary – which is usually called «Madonnina.»

History and Rivalry

Milan were established in December 16, 1899 by former British vice-consul Alfred Edwards and were absorbed in nationalistic ideals which they wouldn’t allow any foreign player to become part of them.

In 1908, issues over the signing of foreign players kindled a rift inside the club and led to a split and the foundation of F.C. Internazionale Milano, which caused a historical rivalry between both clubs.

In the past, AC Milan was the working-class team and was supported mainly by workers and migrants from Southern Italy. Meanwhile, Inter was seen as the club of the Milan bourgeoisie, being of the property-owning class and exploitive of the working class.

However in the recent years this difference has broken down, since Milan is now owned by Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and Inter is owned by oil tycoon Massimo Moratti.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Milan derby saw the Dutch trio of Marco van Basten, Frank Rijkaard and Ruud Gullit played for AC Milan, while the German trio of Andreas Brehme, Jürgen Klinsmann and Lothar Matthäus wore the Inter colors.

This rivalry is mainly remembered for a famous 1990 World Cup incident, when Netherlands confronted Germany at the San Siro, home ground of Inter and Milan. The match ended in defeat for the Dutch as Rijkaard was saw red after spitting on German forward Rudi Völler. The Germans won 2-1 with two of the Inter players Klinsmann and Brehme scoring, a moral victory for Inter fans.

AC Milan, however, was the more dominant team both locally and internationally. They built a squad under Fabio Capello’s lead, later nicknamed as the invincibles, and reached the Champions League final three times in a row

On the other hand, Inter’s drought for a major title – their last major title was 1989 scudetto – ended in 2006 when the Calciopoli scandal stripped Juventus of the 2005-06 scudetto and handed it to the Nerazzurri. They has since clinched the 2007 Serie A title as well, with a record-breaking run of 17 consecutive victories.

The Most Infamous Match

It must be the second leg of the 2004/05 UEFA Champions League semifinal on April 12, 2005.

Milan were leading 1-0 (and 3-0 on aggregate) when Inter’s supporters became infuriated after a second-half Esteban Cambiasso leveler was controversially denied by referee Markus Merk.

Bottles and coins were thrown onto the pitch, but soon increased to lit flares and Milan keeper Dida, who was clearing bottles in order to take a goal kick, was hit by a flare on the back of his right shoulder.

The match was halted at the 74th minute and restarted after a thirty-minute delay. However, Dida was unable to continue, suffered bruising and first-degree burns to his shoulder, and was substituted by Christian Abbiati.

But the match was finally abandoned in less than a minute after more flares and debris rained down. AC Milan was awarded a 3-0 victory, totaling a 5-0 aggregate and moved to the final.

Meanwhile, Inter were fined ¬200,000 – the largest fine ever handed down by UEFA – and were ordered to play their first four Champions League matches behind closed doors in the 2005-06 season as punishment.

The Crossovers

Even though Derby della Madonnina is one of the most raging derby in Italy, but surprisingly both clubs do not forbid players exchange between them.

AC Milan players such as Andrea Pirlo, Clarence Seedorf, Dario Simic and Giuseppe Favalli, all were played for Inter.

While Hernan Crespo is a former Rossoneri player in 2004/05 season. Patrick Vieira is also had a brief spell in 1995-96 with AC Milan, which he made only two Serie A appearances before moving to Arsenal.
