How did the tradition of cutting down the nets begin?
By Chris Chase
But why? How did it get started? Who was the first to cut them down? And why the nets?
The custom dates back to the 1920s when teams in the famed Indiana boy's high school basketball tournament would celebrate winning the state title by cutting down the nets as souvenirs. In the first 25 years of the tournament, no team cut down the nets in Indianapolis as much as Everett Case's Frankfort teams, which won four state titles between 1925 and 1939.
When World War II began, Case enlisted in the Navy, where he assumed the role of athletic director at various pre-flight schools. After the war ended in 1945, Case took over coaching duties at N.C. State. His Wolfpack won the Southern Conference title and, hearkening back to his days in the Hoosier State, Case and his team cut down the net in celebration.
"He wanted it to show as a sign of winning the championship," Frank Weedon, N.C. State senior associate athletics director emeritus, told USA Today in 2005. etc.

3. "General Zod"
Michael Shannon to play villain in Superman movie (Reuters)
He will play General Zod opposite Henry Cavill's Superman in "Superman: Man of Steel." Zod, like Superman, is from Krypton, where he commanded its armed forces. The character appeared in both 1978's Superman and its 1980 sequel Superman II, where he was played by Terence Stamp.
"Zod is not only one of Superman's most formidable enemies, but one of the most significant because he has insights into Superman that others don't," said Zach Snyder, the director of the new film. "Michael is a powerful actor who can project both the intelligence and the malice of the character, making him perfect for the role."
Shannon, seen more recently as a stern federal agent in HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," joins a lineup that also includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, and Diane Lane and Kevin Costner as Martha and Jonathan Kent, the adoptive parents of Superman's alter ego Clark Kent.
General Zod (full name Dru-Zod) is a fictional character who appears in comic books published by DC Comics, a supervillain who is one of Superman's more prominent enemies. The character first appeared in Adventure Comics #283 (April 1961), and was created by Robert Bernstein and George Papp. In the motion pictures Superman: The Movie (1978) and Superman II (1980), Zod is portrayed by British actor Terence Stamp; he is the principal villain of the latter film. British film magazine Total Film named Stamp's version of Zod #32 on their 'Top 50 Greatest Villains Of All Time' list (beating out the #38 place of Lex Luthor) in 2007. Pop culture website IGN.com also named the General as a character as #30 on their list of the 'Top 50 Comic Book Villains' while commenting "Stamp is Zod" (emphasis in original).

Antibiotic Superbugs CRKP & MRSA: Who's at Risk?
By Lisa Collier Cool
4월 07, 2011
Misuse of antibiotics has led to a global health threat: the rise of dangerous—or even fatal—superbugs. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is now attacking both patients in hospitals and also in the community and a deadly new multi-drug resistant bacteria called carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae, or CRKP is now in the headlines. Last year, antibiotic resistant infections killed 25,000 people in Europe, the Guardian reports. Etc.
