 Born on May 28, 1971, Russian Ekaterina Gordeeva is not only
 a champion ice skater but also a symbol of grace, strength, and
 courage. Gordeeva’s parents both worked hard and traveled so
 much that Gordeeva and her sister, Maria, often stayed with their
 grandparents. Gordeeva’s grandmother read Grimm’s fairytales to
 Gordeeva, not knowing that’s how Gordeeva would later describe
 her life--like a fairytale. At four, too young to try out for ballet as
 her father had wanted, Gordeeva was invited for a skating tryout.
 By the time she turned five years old, Gordeeva was practicing
 four times a week. At age 11, Ekaterina Gordeeva (called Katia by
 her friends) became one of a pair -- a pair of “G’s” -- Gordeeva and
 Grinkov. In their 13 years of skating together, Gordeeva and Sergei
 Grinkov became friends, fell in love, married, became parents, and
 won four World championships and two Olympic gold medals.

                                            The great thing about God is that
                                            when you ask for forgiveness;
                                            He not only forgives you, but He
                                            forgets. It is by God’s grace and
                                            mercy that we are saved.

52   Are You A Carrot, An Egg,
     Or A Coffee Bean?

     “When adversity knocks on your
     door, how do you respond? Are you
     a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?”


     A destructive word to someone
     who is down can be what it takes
     to kill them. Be careful of what you
     say. Speak life to those who cross
     your path.

                  The Power of Digital Drawing
I never thought I’ll see the day, digital wizardry will match up with good old-fashioned
drawing techniques. Although I am amazed at what digital painting softwares have
achieved, I never really believed it can emulate how pencils and brushes interacts with
paper and canvas. I have to admit, technology has finally caught up with us in terms
of this medium. Our only saving glory? Well, it is still man that controls both medium.

  almost 5 million die

  Take your hat of Murphy. He’s probably the greatest genius of the century.
       His law “If anything can go wrong, it will.” has proven to be true.
                 Under any condition, in any place at any time.
For example, why does it always rain on a that warm summer day when you plan to go out on a picnic
or whenever you forgot to bring your raincoat. And when you do remember to bring an umbrella, the
sun shines as if there is no tomorrow.

There is no way to escape this course
or curse as it may be. People have

often objected to high heavens
and cry “Why me?” and it sort of
become somewhat of a para-
noia already. And why not! Just
when you are in the middle of
an exam, suddenly you feel this
urge to go to the restroom to
relieve yourself. You run out
of bond paper just when you
need to type a very urgent
and important report. The
water suddenly runs out in
the middle of a soapy bath.
And why is it that when you
are hurrying to go to some-
place, the same route will
take thrice as long due to unexpected traffic.
So stop being bitter and mad at such ridiculous situations for
fear that a lot of other things may go wrong. Learn to smile
or even laugh at yourself and surrender to your faithful
fate. Dare not ask “What else can go wrong?” For there’s a
million of other things that can go wrong.
Murphy couldn’t have said it better.
Call it logic, call it coincidence — call it anyway
you want. But it’s the truth and it happens all
the time. It’s a universal law where there are
no exceptions.
Murphy was right. And now he’s chuckling at all
those people who doubt him and yet experience
the traumas of his law. In any situations something will
suddenly go wrong. As Murphy brilliantly theorized, “If
anything can go wrong... it will!”
Come to think of it, Murphy never had it so good.

       Memorable Events That
        Shaped The Olympics
 Nadia Comaneci: Montreal 1976
Romanian Nadia Comaneci, 4ft 11in and 14 years of age,
broke the Soviet Union’s stranglehold on gymnastics when
she won the women’s all-round title in Montreal. She will
be remembered though for her performances in the team
competition when she made Olympic history by receiving
                     a perfect score of 10 for her per-
                     formances on the uneven bars and
                     then the beam. She was to score
                     five more 10s during the Games,
                     winning three gold medals, one
                      silver and one bronze. She became
                      the first person to be awarded the
                      Olympic Order twice, the highest
                       honour bestowed by the IOC.

    Dan Jansen’s redemption:
    Lillehammer, Norway 1996
Dan Jansen, the speed skater who had promised so
much, but had failed to deliver was competing in the
1000 meters finals at Lillehammer. It is his last chance
at redemption. Four years earlier at the Calgary games,
he had failed to make much of an impact after hearing
the news of his sister Jane’s death. Call it what you will-
destiny, an act of divine providence, whatever-he skated
like never before, created a world record, and took
home the gold. And if there is anything called poignancy
in sport-it is this- Dan Jansen, holding his little girl and
looking up to the heavens saying ‘This is for you, Jane.’

    Muhammad Ali lights the
   Olympic flame: Atlanta 1996
At last he emerged from the background. A body
weathered by Parkinson’s but the mind astute as ever.
Shivering he lit the flame. No other sportsman in the
history of sport had meant so much to so many as
Muhammad Ali. For the dignity of the man was con-
summate – never relinquishing ideals for money or
fame, Ali was the people’s champion – the underdog
in sport and life. “They didn’t tell me who would light
the flame, but when I saw it was you, I cried” said Bill
Clinton. He wasn’t the only one.

Stephen Akhwari: Mexico 1968
A little known Tanzanian runner, John Stephen Akhwari
entered the Olympic stadium – the last man to do so
in the marathon contest. After a fall and carrying a
dislocated knee, he hobbled up to the track amidst a
thunderous applause by the crowd which was lucky
enough to get a glimpse of this gallant champion. It
was later written of his perseverance – ‘Today we have
witnessed a young African runner who symbolizes the
finest in the human spirit. A performance that gives
true dignity to sport – a performance which lifts sports
out of the category of grown men playing in games.’
When asked why he did not quit, he replied,’My coun-
try did not send me 5000 miles to start the race. They
sent me 5000 miles to finish the race.’
     Munich 1972: Black September
September 5, 1972, began with the Olympic village was being
shut down when members of a Palestinian Black September
group infiltrated the Olympic grounds. A security so porous that
it had let eight Palestinian terrorists inside Apartment 1 of 31
Connollystrasse. Two Israeli team members were dead already
and by the day's end another 10, as well as five terrorists. Incred-
ibly, the Games resumed after 34 hours and a memorial service.

Kerri Strug : 1996 Olympics Atlanta
The United States women's gymnastics team was within strik-
ing distance of their first-ever team gold medal. Coached by the
legendary Bela Karolyi, a Romanian who had coached Nadia
Comaneci to gold before defecting to the U.S., the team finally
stood a chance against stiff competition from Russia, Romania,
and China. In the end, the U.S. gold medal dreams came down to
one woman--Kerri Strug, who needed a high score on the vault
to cement her team's victory. On her first attempt, Strug twisted
her ankle. Undeterred, she insisted on taking her second attempt
at the vault--and executed it perfectly despite landing on one
leg, thus winning the gold for her team. She then collapsed in
pain. At the medal ceremony, Karolyi carried her up to the po-
dium to be with her teammates, an image that quickly became

Derek Redmond: Barcelona in 1992
The story of the United Kingdom's runner Derek Redmond
has earned a memorable place in Olympics history. In 1988
in Seoul, Redmond was forced to withdraw from the 400 me-
ters just 10 minutes before the race began due to an injured
Achilles tendon. So in Barcelona in 1992, he was thirsting for a
medal. As always, his father, Jim, was in the stands. They had
agreed earlier that no matter what happened, Derek would
finish the race. But in his semifinal heat, just as it seemed
certain he would cruise to the final, Derek heard a pop in his
right hamstring. He collapsed on the track in tears. But then he
got up, and everyone realized he meant to finish. As he hob-
bled down the track in agony, his father rushed down from
the stands, put his arm around his boy, and helped him to the
finish line. Just short of it, Jim pulled back and let Derek cross
by himself. The crowd rose to give Derek a standing ovation.
This was a shining moment of heroism, and a testament to love
between father and son.
       his is a tricky question and
       we can’t blame you if you’ll
       be flusttered and befud-
dled by it. However, if you really
are going out of your mind trying
to determine the correct answer
-- don’t be. The right answer is
provided at the bottom. But just
for the fun of it, try to answer the
problem. Who knows, you might
just crack it.
Here’s the problem:
The road to heaven splits into
two. You are left to determine
which road you will take to make
it to heaven’s gate. Fortunately,
there are two sentries manning each road for which you can ask direction. One road leads to
heaven which is guarded by an angel, while the other road leads to hell and manned by a devil-
You are only allowed one question to ask both of them to know the right path. Seems easy enough,
you might think. Unfortunately, you can’t distinguish the other guard from the other since the devil
mimics the appearance of the angel. To complicate matters, although the angel will give you an
honest answer, expect the devil to deceive you and tell you the opposite of what is true.

          Your dilemma is this, what is the right question to ask both
                sentries to determine the right road to heaven?

    Although there are other correct question (as you might argue) the most “correct” ques-
    tion to ask would be:

                    Where did the other guy (guard) came from?
                                            Click here
    The angel will point in the direction of hell from which the devil naturally came from. The
    devil on the other hand, since it is wont to tell the opposite of what is true, will also point in
                                              for the
    the direction of hell, telling the lie that the angel came from hell. Hence, you can safely de-
    termine that the other path not pointed (or choosen) is the right road that leads to heaven.

critic Roger Ebert, was nominated for a Golden

The Empty Easter Egg

             eremy was born with a twisted body and a slow
             mind. At the age of 12 he was still in second grade,
             seemingly unable to learn. His teacher, Doris Miller,
             often became exasperated with him. He would
             squirm in his seat, drool, and make grunting noises.
      At other times, he spoke clearly and distinctly, as if a spot of
      light had penetrated the darkness of his brain. Most of the
      time, however, Jeremy just irritated his teacher.
      One day she called his parents and asked them to come
      in for a consultation. As the Forresters entered the empty
      classroom, Doris said to them, “Jeremy really belongs in a
      special school. It isn’t fair to him to be with younger chil-
      dren who don’t have learning problems. Why, there is a five
      year gap between his age and that of the other students.”
      Mrs. Forrester cried softly into a tissue, while her husband
      spoke.“Miss Miller,” he said, “there is no school of that kind
      nearby. It would be a terrible shock for Jeremy if we had to
      take him out of this school. We know he really likes it here.”
      Doris sat for a long time after they had left, staring at the
snow outside the window. Its coldness seemed          She completely forgot about phoning Jeremy’s

           Don’t Lie to
     Your Mother
                             rs. Jenkins comes to visit her son
                             Anthony for dinner... who lives
                             with a female roommate, Vikki.
                    During the course of the meal, his mother
                    couldn’t help but notice how pretty Antho-
                    ny’s roommate was. She had long been sus-
                    picious of a relationship between the two,
                    and this had only made her more curious.
                           Over the course of the evening, while watch-
                                   ing the two interact, she started to
                                     wonder if there was more between
                                     Anthony and his roommate than
                                     met the eye.
                                     Reading his mom’s thoughts, Antho-
                                    ny volunteered, “I know what you
                                    must be thinking, but I assure you,
                                  Vikki and I are just roommates.”
                                About a week later, Vikki came to Antho-
                              ny saying, “Ever since your mother came

                            “Well, I doubt it, but I’ll email her, just to

    Are You A Carrot, An
  Egg, Or A Coffee Bean?

         young woman went to her
         mother and told her about
         her life and how things
         were so hard for her. She
did not know how she was going to
make it and wanted to give up. She
was tired of fighting and struggling. It
seemed as one problem was solved a
new one arose.
Her mother took her to the kitchen.
She filled three pots with water. In
the first, she placed carrots, in the
second she placed eggs and the last,
ground coffee beans. She let them
sit and boil without saying a word. In
about twenty minutes she turned off
the burners. She fished the carrots
out and placed them in a bowl. She
pulled the eggs out and placed them
in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee
out and placed it in a bowl. Turning
to her daughter, she asked, “Tell me
