Class Act

If you had read Time magazine (April 27 edition, pp 37-38), you would have learned that top-tier universities are racing to give the public free online access to their best lecturers. It seems that in March, YouTube had launched an education hub called YouTube Edu, dedicated exclusively to videos from more than 100 US colleges and universities that have set up official channels on the site. Other sites worth exploring include AcademicEarth.org and even TED.com. ADP students should check them out – maybe we ourselves could organize short lectures and post them online?

Liverpool expectedly walloped Hull 3-1 (their scorers were Alonso, 45; and Kuyt, 63 & 89). Regretfully, insofar as the other team is concerned, there was no miracle – Man U convincingly beat Tottenham 5-2.
