Germany's World Cup final victory is reward for a development which began more than a decade ago. Nearly all the players in the side which defeated Argentina 1-0 in the Maracana stadium were also on the field in Cape Town four years ago in South Africa in a 4-0 quarter-final defeat of the South Americans. Many have grown up together and played for Germany's youth teams after the federation decided in 2000 on an overhaul of its programmes for developing young talent.

The FIFA World Cup has ended in Brazil, with Germany emerging champions, Argentina second and Netherlands at third place. Experts and viewers are unanimous in believing there has never been such an excellent football World Cup in which every participating team showed the highest standard of professionalism. Whatever the results, and no matter if the teams you favoured won or lost (my choice: Camaroon, Uruguay, Brazil all went down), all across the world there was admiration and the young were motivated to take up the sport.
Majestic atmosphere of Ahmed Pervez Art Gallery at The Arts Council of Pakistan, Karachi overwhelms the visitors. The walls of the gallery were adorned by the most attractive vivid stylised letters and words in various calligraphic styles highlighting Quranic verses and Islamic themes. The group exhibition includes 113 works by 51 artists. The artists participated have been invited from Karachi, Hyderabad, Islamabad and Lahore. The artists are mainly those whose art practices revolve around the genre of calligraphy.
Germany is a modern country with all the trappings of a tech-savvy population like smartphones and social media-addicted youth. But even in times like these people still like to hold on to old things like typewriting machines, letters and Polaroid cameras. "Every trend has a counter movement," says trend scout Karin Frick. "Just like when globalization triggered an antagonistic love for things regional."
Swathes of the Amazon may have been grassland until a natural shift to a wetter climate about 2,000 years ago let the rainforests form, according to a study that challenges common belief that the world's biggest tropical forest is far older.
A "supermoon" rose above cities from Los Angeles to London last Saturday night, the first of three times this year the full moon will orbit nearer the earth and appear unusually large and bright. The supermoon is technically known as a "perigee moon," and occurs when the moon is full as it reaches perigee, the point of its orbit closest to the earth, The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said in a statement. It looks largest when it's closest to the horizon - an optical illusion.
Don't tell Garrison Keillor that his new book, "The Keillor Reader," is the capstone to his more than 40-year career as a writer, humorist and host of the popular radio program "A Prairie Home Companion." The book collects for the first time many Keillor stories, essays and his signature Prairie monologues, along with new works, including "Cheerfulness," an essay dedicated to his mother. Keillor, 71, spoke about the book, fame, his career and America.
