National League Arise After 14 Years 2

But Atlanta Braves’ Brian McCann hit that ended the National League All Star win drought bagged the Ted Williams All-Star MVP awards presented by Chevrolet. Brian McCann delivered the team from behind to topple the American League and breaking the latter’s lucky streak win at the MLB All Star Game. Brian McCann’s hit was meaningful to him, to the Braves and to the National League’s All Star Game form.

Consider that as a happy ending for the National League. The Braves will have to thank him if they go to the World Series for doing what he did at the All Star Game.

National League Arise After 14 Years 1

MLB All Star Game 2010 proved to be the comeback year for the National League as they won 3-1 on Tuesday’s Midsummer Classic. As if to say that enough is enough, the National League walked away triumphant in front of more than 45,000 fans at the Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California locking a home field advantage in the 2010 World Series in the process.

But before the official start of the All Star Game, a few minutes of silence was observed in memory of Yankees’ owner George Steinbrenner who passed on earlier this week after turning 80.

Oscar Grant trial 2

Many people were appalled by the Mehserle verdict and I would understand why. This is a sensationalized story of police brutality, reckless behaviour and disregard for human life in simple man’s terms. The Mehserle verdict may even raise more questions on police accountability in the future.

We should also be concerned about the actions of some elements who exploit these kinds of situations. The lootings, fires, vandalism and damages were sincerely inappropriate and uncalled for. Certainly, nobody from any neighbourhood would want a riot. Everyone wants to enjoy peace and businesses should feel safe.

Police says however, that no violence will be left tolerated.

Emmy Nominations 2010: Not Without Surprises 1

Just like me, many of you must’ve waited long enough for the Emmy nominations to be announced. Did our favourites meet the cut?

The Emmy Nominations 2010 came about a little bit more like expected. However, some twists and turns on the Emmy nominations 2010 list might still take you by surprise.

‘Glee’ rakes up a remarkable 19 Emmy nominations including Outstanding Comedy compared to Mad Men with only 17 nominations. Well, even with more nominations, the most win still matters the most so, the best to both and here’s to the Emmy’s!

Side by side with Matthew Morrison of ‘Glee’ for an Emmy title for Outstanding Lead Actor In a Comedy Series is my favourite –and yes, bet… Tony Shalhoub for ‘Monk.’

Oscar Grant trial 1

The jury has returned with a verdict: Mehserle was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and not guilty of second degree murder and voluntary manslaughter for killing Oscar Grant.

It was regarded that no matter what verdict the jury reached, demonstrations were set to occur in Oakland following the Oscar Grant trial. And as expected, chaos surfaced when night fell. During hours of unrest, shops were vandalized; rioters were in a looting rampage forcing themselves to local businesses such as the Foot Locker, the Far East National Bank and a jewelry store. However, police says that people who are engaged in criminal actions such as these rioters were not necessarily supporters of Oscar Grant or protesters against the Mehserle verdict. Most of these were professional trouble makers who take opportunities like these to cause trouble. Witnesses even claimed that the people who were involved in the violent attacks in downtown Oakland were in white robes and were spraying graffiti that read “No to work, yes to looting.”

KNOWLEDGE OF AFRICAN MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS 2

Talking drums are very common among the tribal people of Africa. Both sides of the drum are covered and beaten with sticks to produce sound. The beats give enthusiasm to all the people and they start dancing. The string connecting the two sides is tightened to produce different sounds. The sounds are so different that the tribal people used it to talk with each other.
Thumb pianos are used to play different notes. It is made of wood and metal. Mibra is one of the thumb pianos which is most commonly used. The piano is supported with one hand and the thumb and index finger of the other hand are used to press the keys. There are other varieties of thumb piano.
Tribal people may look uneducated but they have introduced so many good musical instruments to the world. They have been very well talented in music and dance.

The World Waits: World Cup 2010 2

Total goals scored at World Cup 2010 as of this writing are 13. Three-time world champion Germany made four goals followed by South Korea with two. My other favourite team and defending champion Italy will be playing Paraguay on June 14 with a point to prove. Italy aims to make a repeat on their 2006 performance where they opened a 2-0 win against Ghana.

Other games to look forward to are bouts from South Africa, the crowd favourite versus Uruguay on June 16 and France versus Mexico on June 17.

The World Waits: World Cup 2010 1

South Africa hosts World Cup 2010 and I believe that there is more to it than that. Football historically is more popular with black Africans while the white Africans prefer rugby and cricket. In 1995 Rugby World Cup was grabbed by South Africa in a home court advantage. A comparison and maybe an expectation arise if South Africa can repeat a win for World Cup 2010. As the host nation, South Africa qualifies automatically but even so, they participated in the World Cup qualifiers.
