Champions League Semi Finals 2013

I will have to reject the notion that German football league is now officially the best in Europe.
I feel that the recent drubbing Real Madrid and Barcelona received from German clubs was more due to the poor quality of their performances during their match. Bayern Munich is right now at the top in European football and Dortmund close, yet the rest of Germany is far behind. English and Spanish football leagues one the other hand are extremely competitive down to 6th and 7th position atleast. And the top teams in these 2 leagues have disappointed in the Champions League but Germany cannot be considered the best league in 2 seasons and due to the consistency of just one club in Europe.

Joey's Hand Song

If you love FRIENDS and you love Joey, you must definitely remember Joey's hand song from episode 23 of Season 5

"This hand is your hand;
This hand is my hand;
Oh wait, that's your hand;
No wait, it's my hand."

It's an Extrovert's World

The rules of the world I live in are made up by extroverts. Not fair to the introverts, especially when, if reports are to be believed they make up at least 33% of the world population. How can this be so? For as long as I can remember, our society rewards encourages extroversion and frowns upon its brother. School, college, exams, interviews, jobs - all preach, encourage and reward extroversion. They rate higher and favor individuals who show traits of extroverts. Extroverts are more open about their thoughts and emotions while introverts may not even present to people half of what they are capable of because they feel no urge to do so. They may seem quite comfortable in their spot. Look closer please!!

Habemus Papum

So on March 14th 2013, the college of Cardinals elected  a new pope for the Catholic church - 86 year old Cardinal Jorge Bergoglia from Buenos Aires, Argentina henceforth to be known as Pope Francis I. This choice, which came after 5 votes, established a few firsts for the Catholic Church:
1) First pope from South America
2) First pope from outside Europe - modern era
3) First Argentinian pope
4) First Pope from the Jesuit order
The Pope's choice of name - in this case, after Francis of Assisi,  is often considered to be the reflection of whom the Pope will model himself on during his papacy. Pope John Paul II took his name from two separate previous Popes as his new identity. He speaks German, Spanish and Italian. 
This election, along with the previous one, is among the shortest ever elections ever in Vatican history.
