Admission in the higher education sector
Boston: The admission list released by the Boston University on Monday did not see a sharp spike in any of the courses. After many students received merit certificates this year, it was being expected that the list would be a long one. However, barring science courses, only Humanities and Commerce saw a marginal increase. In fact the admissions for these courses dipped in some cases.
Many teachers have detached themselves from the admission process due to the ongoing controversy over the introduction of the new system. This could perhaps be one of the reasons for the low rate of admissions.The head of the university mentioned that they had received a large number of applications which prompted the management to slightly toughen the admission process.

Psychic Paul Hits Bull’s Eye Every Time
New Delhi: Paul the octopus is a common octopus which lives in a tank at a Sea Life Centre in Germany. It really came in the limelight during the 2010 football world cup when it started predicting the outcome of Germany’s matches. All its predictions, including that of the final between Spain and the Netherlands, were on the money.
Before a match between two teams, Paul was presented with two boxes containing its favorite food mussel. The boxes were marked with the flags of the two teams respectively. Paul made his prediction by eating the mussel from the box of the winning team.
Paul correctly predicted the result of all the seven matches that Germany played in the 2010 football world cup against Australia, Serbia, Ghana, England, Argentina, Spain and Uruguay. Paul’s prophecy of the semi-final clash between Germany and Spain led to heartbreak among the German fans. Paul chose the box marked with the Spanish flag ahead of the contest. His forecast was again correct as Spain advanced into the world cup final by beating Germany. Paul took retirement after making one last guess. It rightly chose Spain that defeated Holland 1-0 in the world cup final.
