DURBAN, South Africa — The World Cup semifinal Wednesday between Spain and Germany is a rematch of the last European Championship title game. But that's where the similarities end — at least on the German side. "Two years later for us there are many changes while the Spaniards are similar," German coach Joachim Loew said Tuesday. Loew took over the German team after the last World Cup, where Germany finished third. "We have made progress in the style of football we play and the results we get," he said.

JERUSALEM - It was a dead language, an 8,000-word relic. And as 19th-century Jewish pilgrims began settling the hills and valleys of what would become Israel, the status of Hebrew seemed like that of the crumbling Roman aqueducts strung across the landscape - interesting to study but unfit for restoration.Theodor Herzl, the father of Zionism, felt that way, wanting no part of a language that you couldn't even use to buy a train ticket. Use German or English, he said, or both.That left it up to lingual zealot Eliezer Perlmann, who arrived in Jerusalem from Lithuania in 1882, changed his name to Ben Yehuda and took up the cause of Hebrew.

When Phillip Gyau was inducted into the Maryland Soccer Hall of Fame in 2008, his 15-year-old son had to take the day off. As Joseph Gyau came to know, the national team's residency program isn't for the faint of heart. “A profession like this starts early,” said Amina Gyau, Joseph's mother. Now 21, Joseph continues to climb the ladder: He signed in June with the Under-23 team of Borussia Dortmund, a Champions League staple and one of the two most prominent clubs in Germany's Bundesliga.

Picky, Wordville's British honorary consul, recommends consideration of the peroration of A.J.P. Taylor's English History 1914-1945 . "The rhythm is particularly effective, I think," he says. Let's have a look:   In the second World War the British people came of age. This was a people's war. Not only were their needs considered. They themselves wanted to win. Future historians may see the war as a last struggle for the European balance of power or for the maintenance of Empire.

Bob Baffert , the Hall of Fame trainer of Preakness entry Bayern, hopes his horse has more luck in Baltimore than Bodemeister did at Pimlico two years ago. After winning the Arkansas Derby that year, Bodemeister finished second in both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. After Bayern won in Arkansas last month, Baffert decided to have him race in the 1-mile Derby trial rather than the 1 ¼-mile Derby. Bayern - named after soccer power Bayern Munich, the favorite club of the horse's owner Kaleem Shah - finished first in the Derby trial with Rosie Napravnik aboard, but he was later disqualified for interference and given second.

Dresden was the place for artistic jolts in 1905. Operagoers were treated to the sight of a severed head, formerly attached to John the Baptist, being handed up from a cistern to a salivating Salome. Thick harmonies and bold splashes of tone color poured from the orchestra to underline the gruesome scene. It was the startling sound of music breaking with tradition. The same year that Richard Strauss' opera "Salome" premiered in Dresden, the German city saw the birth of "Die Brucke" ("The Bridge")

If we could get NSA hackers to go to work on the Obamacare website, health care for every American would be delivered before Christmas. At least, it seems as if that would be the case. The folks who brought us HealthCare.gov cannot seem to keep the site from freezing up and shunting people seeking insurance coverage to a virtual waiting room with no doors. Meanwhile, the cyberspies at the National Security Agency are apparently smart enough to break into the telephones and electronic communications of every head of state from Berlin to Rio. Why does one set of government techies seem as smart as Q, James Bond's gadgets guy, and another set seem as knuckle-headed as Dwight Schrute on "The Office?"
