2010 World Cup Semi Finals

With the quarter finals over, the Netherlands will face Uruguay int he semi-finals while the Germans take on Spain. It’s obvious that the Germans will move onto the finals, unless Spain can manage to get back into it. Their performance wasn’t very impressive in yesterday’s game, so I honestly doubt that they’ll be able to win it against the Germans. Also, even if some players weren’t have a great day for Germany, they were able to win in a convincing fashion. My money’s on Germany to win this year’s World Cup.

I’m sure that the Netherlands will destroy Uruguay. They are clearly not in the same league and the Dutch, after having dispatched Brazil, will have no problems moving onto the finals.

So it looks like we’ll have a European final, with the Netherlands facing off against Germany. Once again, I think that Germany will prevail, although we’ll have to see how it all ends.

The type of play is also quite different, between the Latin teams and the Northern European teams. I don’t like the amount of faking and fake fouling that happens when Latin American teams play, especially South Americans. This happens a lot less with the Germans. It’s surprising that Argentina and Brazil weren’t able to move on. For a while, it looked like it would be an all South American quarter-final.

It’s also good that the matches are now better spaced apart. I’ve had to stop checking up Twitter and my feeds while I watch the games after they have been aired. While I could watch the first match during the same night, since it aired at 10PM local time, it was much harder for the later game, which aired at 2:30AM. I had to wait for the next day. The Dutch game is on the 6th while the German game is on the 7th. The finals are on the 11th.

Finals

I’ve got two final exams tomorrow, plus two assignments that are due in the next two days. The assignments are completed and I’ve almost finished studying. It’s been a hard semester. I can’t wait till Friday.

On top of that, I have the same professor in those two classes. He’s allright, but I’m hoping that the finals will be easy, since he wanted to have an 80% average in his class. He models his exams on the HW he gives, so I should be good.

Wednesday End Of Term Four More To Go

I’ve been studying intensely for the last few days. I’ve been concentrating on Numerical Analysis, the class in which I had the most work. Things are progressing well.

Tomorrow I have two exams. One in Analysis I and one in Numerical Linear Algebra. I have finished my classes and I have part of the day off. I have to head to school for my 1:30PM Analysis I class to see what the prof has to say about the exam. So until then, I’ll study Analysis I.

I did a little bit of art yesterday to relax. I had some of my class notes binded since my original notebook was falling apart. I created a cover for them. I also covered my course book in a cover and spent some time drawing a cover image. I used a combination of watercolors and china ink. I’m uploading pics as we speak.
