  3. The curse of the white buses?

    afootballreport:

    By Dominic Vieira, writing from Lisbon

    A game we’ve all seen before, where Barcelona persistently tried to find the net and were unlucky, again. The consequences of an attacking overload were suffered at the back as an advanced defensive line lost them Europe’s most wanted crown. Chelsea are going to Munich.

    In each of the past 5 years, FC Barcelona have reached the semi-finals of the Champions League. In 2008, 2010 and now 2012, the visiting side wore white and blocked Barcelona’s path to the final. Under Pep Guardiola, we’ve seen almost two identical matches against Mourinho’s Inter Milan and di Matteo’s Chelsea; two battles when Barcelona had to win by 2 goals, two encounters completely dominated by the hosts, two matches when the visitors played defended with ten men, and most importantly, two matches when they ‘parked the bus’. In fact, the Greek national team which incredibly and unexpectedly won the Euro 2004 could almost be classified as an attacking team when compared to these sides.

    Chelsea played like Inter did in 2010, collectively defending for 90 minutes. They were compact, closed, and conservative.

Dear Photograph,
My Mom’s high school graduation was at Red Rocks Amphitheater outside of Denver, Colorado. Years pass by and time takes a little piece of something from all of us. My high school graduation was held at the same place, but sadly, my Mom had passed away long before. With my photograph in hand, I retraced her steps in hopes of gaining an understanding of who she was.

    Just How Small is an Atom?

    A fantastic new video from the TEDEd project. By the way, a grapefruit is the same as an Earth filled with blueberries.

    It does a fantastic job detailing the misconceptions that abound in basic science books. Atoms are hard to get your mind around, even though your mind is made of them.

    Previously: I answer the question: “If atoms are mostly empty space, why don’t we fall through the floor?”

With the 2012 election ramp up, here is a cozy/creepy reminder that in nearly a century of American politics very little has changed, excepting a goat. This 1924 Berryman Ain’t Politics Grand? was drawn with the Presidential and Congressional elections only two weeks away at the time, and depicts politicians of all parties promising to lower taxes to sway voters.
We have the go-to Dem. Donkey, Rep. Elephant, and the now obsolete Progressive Goat (as anyone who knows anything about livestock knows those horned ones are the out-of-the-box types).
How will Presidential and Congressional campaigns continue to change? Join us Thursday at 7 p.m. to find out.
