How Jurgen Klopp turned me into an internet 'phenomenon'
There is a saying in journalism: "Report the news, don't become the news". On April 15 I failed miserably. The whole situation is still pretty embarrassing.

The importance of Arteta and Mertesacker's leadreship to the cohesion of the Arsenal squad
Arsenal needed stabilising. Enter Mertesacker and Arteta, two unfashionable veterans but experienced pros made of the right stuff.

Arteta and Mertesacker didn't arrive at Arsenal as the barely-out-of-their-teens prodigies Wenger had previously stockpiled.

Instead, they were battle-worn veterans who had toiled for years in European football's middle tier.

They were never going to be marquee players on the pitch, but both have played a vital role in changing the personality of the squad for the better. The duo have fostered a greater sense of unity and camaraderie that's been particularly obvious during the last two campaigns.

Miroslav Klose Announces Retirement from Germany International Side
Like all great strikers, Klose's style isn't one that will be replicated. Germany will now seek alternative firepower as their era as world champions begins. Rather fittingly, Klose bows out having captured the ultimate goalscoring record and with the sport's most prestigious trophy to boot.

German football is awash with legendary names—from Franz Beckenbauer to Gerd Muller—of which there is no doubt Klose deserves to be considered alongside.

Miroslav Klose Retirement Ends Golden Germany Career for World Cup Record Holder
Klose is a rare breed of footballer, one who always put country ahead of all other endeavors. Many have joked that he is the only player in football history to have retired at club level in order to focus on his international career; others have postulated that the DFB (German F.A.) should consider keeping him cryogenically frozen so he can participate in the 2018 and 2022 World Cups and beyond.

Miroslav Klose 'more than just goals'
Football magazine 11 Freunde compared Klose to a good wine, saying he "got better with every year, with a tasty finish" and added: "You will be missed -- not only because you helped Germany win the World Cup but also because you were like a good friend. You bolstered, gave hope and we could always rely on you."

I Liked Everything I Saw on Facebook for Two Days. Here’s What It Did to Me
While I expected that what I saw might change, what I never expected was the impact my behavior would have on my friends’ feeds. I kept thinking Facebook would rate-limit me, but instead it grew increasingly ravenous. My feed become a cavalcade of brands and politics and as I interacted with them, Facebook dutifully reported this to all my friends and followers.

That first night, a small little circle with a dog’s head popped up in the corner of my phone. A chat head, from Facebook’s Messenger software! The dog turned out to be my old WIRED editor, John Bradley. “Have you been hacked,” he wanted to know. The next morning, my friend Helena sent me a message. “My fb feed is literally full of articles you like, it’s kind of funny,” she says. “No friend stuff, just Honan likes.” I replied with a thumbs up. This continued throughout the experiment. When I posted a status update to Facebook just saying “I like you,” I heard from numerous people that my weirdo activity had been overrunning their feeds. “My newsfeed is 70 percent things Mat has liked,” noted my pal Heather. Eventually, I would hear from someone who worked at Facebook, who had noticed my activity and wanted to connect me with the company’s PR department.

Programming Sucks
According to the author, that program is "two lines of code that parse two lines of embedded comments in the code to read the Mayan numbers representing the individual ASCII characters that make up the magazine title, rendered in 90-degree rotated ASCII art."

That program won a contest, because of course it did. Do you want to live in a world like this? No. This is a world of where you can smoke a pack a day and nobody even questions it. "Of course he smokes a pack a day, who wouldn't?" Eventually every programmer wakes up and before they're fully conscious they see their whole world and every relationship in it as chunks of code, and they trade stories about it as if sleepiness triggering acid trips is a normal thing that happens to people. This is a world where people eschew sex to write a programming language for orangutans. All programmers are forcing their brains to do things brains were never meant to do in a situation they can never make better, ten to fifteen hours a day, five to seven days a week, and every one of them is slowly going mad.
