Internet Access in China

When we last checked on this site, Psillakis.com was accessible in China. Find out here which sites are blocked (including Google, Playboy and Amnesty International) and have a think about free speech whilst you're at it.

Google Zeitgeist

What's hot in internet searching. Similar to the Yahoo buzz index. Try this site also for more info and a rundown on search voyeurs and trackers, as well as trackers by MetaTiger, Altavista UK,   (may offend some) and some disturbing web requests (will probably offend everyone).

Owens embarrassed Adolf Hitler when he didn't follow the script at the Munich Olympics of 1936, where the  grandson of a slave won four gold medals.

George Best

Johan Cruyff

Pele may be more famous, di Stefano may arguably have been a better all round player, but Cruyff (or Cruijff, as the official Dutch-language site spells it), was the thinking man's footballer. A genius, on and off the field.
