MH17 shot down

Got up at around 4 something a.m.  and found out about this. Most of the passengers are from Netherlands. At first glance, it seems like an accident  where the  MH17 has been mistaken as a military plane but a full investigation needs to be carried out.  298 have been  killed in this tragedy.

The route taken by the MH17 had been abandoned by  a few other Asian airlines even though international air authorities had deemed the flight path secure.

Jason Derulo - "Undefeated"

So Brazil and Argentina won their quarter-final matches and I had a triple discount offer for Baskin Robbin ice cream. Somehow I remembered this song which was in Idol some time back.

As the story goes, on January 3, 2012, while Jason was rehearsing for his Future History Tour, he broke one of his vertebrae and he had to cancel all his tours. On March 28, 2012, Derulo appeared on American Idol to announce he would allow fans to help him finish the lyrics for a new song entitled "Undefeated", as part of a partnership with American Idol and Coca Cola. The song apparently helped him in the healing process.

Here is his performance at Idol 2012 finale

World Cup Round Up

Looking forward to tonight's games. This week, Nigeria played so well against France. I saw the first 45 min of it and then went to sleep. Before I slept I thought to myself  - oh looks like Nigeria could win it.  Then  I had a dream Nigeria was going to win it. So when I got up, I was a little surprised to find out France won but I  guess I am glad they did as I had said four years ago France are a strong team that could win the Cup. Now the list of dream teams is bigger and  Nigeria are  a team to watch out for in the future.

England, Argentina and Portugal are the other teams in the list but Ronaldo was injured and not at his best -so Portugal are out. I suppose one can say that Brazil is in the list too but they are not as strong as before? -that has always been a question mark for some time.

If Brazil  and France win - I get a triple  discount offer for Baskin Robbins ice cream.

5-7-2014  Looks like Brazil won but France lost. Still have a chance for the offers if Argentina win.

This is a more functional program of complex numbers -

 The Javascript is different here from the conventional one as Khan Academy has made some kind of standalone program to run it.
