Paul the Octopus

Paul the Octopus

I wonder if he predicted his own death? anyways. Here’s the news regarding Paul the Octopus dying.

Stefan Porwoll, manager of the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre in Germany, said: ”His success made him almost a bigger story than the World Cup itself.”

Paul predicted the winners of all Germany’s World Cup clashes, and then of the final by selecting one of two boxes, each loaded with a mussel food treat and marked on the outside with one of the teams.
Staff at the centre said his death was not entirely unexpected, since common octopuses generally only live a couple of years.

”He appears to have passed away peacefully during the night, of natural causes, and we are consoled by the knowledge that he enjoyed a good life here,” said Mr Porwoll.

”We may decide to give Paul his own small burial plot within our grounds and erect a modest permanent shrine.”

Paul will live on meanwhile in the form of a range of commercial enterprises ranging from special clothing lines to mobile phone applications.

He will also feature in a documentary to be released early next year. [Source]

World famous Canadian singer Celine Dion and his husband Rene Angelil have a double dose of joy today, as they are now the parents of twins – twin boys, to be more accurate. The two babies -who have not been named yet – have been delivered through C-section on Saturday morning in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Dion’s new sons were born at 5 lbs., 10 oz., and 5 lbs., 4 oz., and are premature but healthy. They will reportedly spend a few days in neonatal intensive care, a common procedure for newborn twins, who often arrive before their due date.

Dr. Ronald Ackerman (whose son, Dr. Joshua Ackerman also assisted in the delivery) explained that the surgery to deliver the babies went as expected — with the first boy born at 11:11 a.m. and the second born at 11:12 a.m. — and said that both twins were born with a “good amount” of hair.

Celine and his husband have been really happy to announce the pregnancy back in may – it is the result of six attempts of in-vitro fertilization. The struggle to conceive has finally proven to be fruitful.
