His resignation is expected to further weaken the government's attempts to come to grips with a host of domestic and foreign challenges.Mr. Genscher, 65, said he was not stepping down because of the government's problems or because of his poor health.

Yesterday in one sentence: I have a scarf that says “Not in the face” in both Brazilian and English; I bet one of the Brazilian players wished they knew how to say it in German to stop that beating yesterday. What's on tap: Argentina vs. Netherlands, 4 p.m., ESPN What you'll see: I'd say not to count on eight goals, but yesterday was supposed to be a tight affair, too, and it basically led to the biggest rout in World Cup history. Argentina and the Netherlands, however, aren't likely coming into this match resigned that it was over for them the way Brazil did. Argentina advanced past Belgium on a cracker from Gonzalo Higuain, and a combination of Higuain, Angel Di Maria, and Ezequiel Lavezzi were active and threatening throughout the match as complements to Lionel Messi.

Yesterday (the weekend) in one sentence: The quarterfinal round was, sadly, as predictable as the last 16, but there's a chance teams might play more openly in this round. What's on tap: Brazil vs. Germany, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see: These two world superpowers are quite familiar with each other, with Brazil winning the last three competitive matches, including the 2002 final in South Korea and Japan. More was on the line in that match, but this one might feel bigger in front of the home crowd for Brazil.

"Pull Yourself Together," blared a mass-circulation German newspaper after the shocking results of Sunday's local elections in the state of Hesse had been reported. The message was not directed at frustrated voters, 8.3 percent of whom cast their ballots for the right-wing Republikaner Party, which drew only 0.7 percent the last time out. Instead, quite correctly, the rebuke was aimed at the bickering, stalemated centrist parties that have been the bedrock of postwar German democracy.This election outcome does not mean neo-Nazism is on the march.

GERMANS ARE accepting unification as a duty, not a deliverance. Nowhere is a note of triumphalism to be heard.The (former) West Germans gloomily assess what all this is going to cost and what it will mean to their comfort and set ways. Germans in the East edgily resign themselves to insecurity, unemployment, professional reconversion, and the condescension -- sometimes hostility -- of fellow Germans in the West. Chancellor Helmut Kohl has acknowledged the split between those who think themselves ''givers'' in the West and those they consider ''takers'' in the East.

Germany is such an easy candidate for a national guilt trip that the outside world, in reacting to escalating racist violence there, should be careful not to play into the hands of neo-Nazi extremists. This is well understood by the Israeli government, which has condemned hate crimes against Jews and foreigners but has drawn the line when it comes to punitive measures against the vast German majority striving to safeguard democracy.There can be little doubt that Germany is in a state of psychological crisis after the fire-bomb killing of two Turkish girls and a grandmother last month caused international outrage.

Yesterday in one sentence : The gap between the Americans' loss and these matches didn't really help anyone's World Cup fever sustain itself, as France and Germany was kind of boring and Brazil won the battle against Colombia but lost the war as Neymar will miss the rest of the tournament with a fractured vertebra. What's on tap : Argentina vs. Belgium, noon, ABC; Netherlands vs. Costa Rica, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see : Hopefully, better matches than yesterday's slugfest in Rio or snoozefest in Fortaleza.

Yesterday in one sentence : The gaps in the World Cup schedule, as a very smart person pointed out to me, need to be filled with something, even if it's MLS games. It was too weird without soccer this week, and now there are more days without it than with it until the end of the World Cup. What's on tap : France vs. Germany, noon, ESPN2; Brazil vs. Colombia, 4 p.m., ESPN. What you'll see : Sure, the United States has been eliminated for days, but seeing these matchups should only make everyone, even on this most patriotic day of days, understand why the United States is out and these teams are in. France and Germany have been the class of the European teams so far, while Brazil and Colombia (with respect to Argentina, which hasn't looked great)

They came to Power Plant Live! with American flags slung like capes around their necks, red-white-and-blue suspenders holding up their shorts and giant top hats festooned with enormous glittering stars that would make Uncle Sam blush. Fifteen minutes before the United States' World Cup match against Portugal, Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the U.S.A. " filled the downtown air. Ten minutes till the start, and the U.S. soccer chant, "I believe that we will win," reached a roar. A DJ whipped the crowd into bellowing "USA" with a few anxious minutes remaining.

Germans have more than once turned rightward since World War II. There were ephemeral ''neo-Nazi'' movements in the 1950s, and at the end of the 1960s a rightist party did well in regional elections, barely missing representation in the federal parliament. Three years ago the right-wing Republican Party got more than 7 percent of the vote in European Parliament elections and won nearly 10 percent in some south German municipal elections.Thus, Sunday's strong showing by these same Republicans (10.9 percent -- plus 2.1 percent won by two other small rightist groups)

Turning away from a sold-out crowd in Santa Clara, Calif., Taylor Twellman put down the mic and picked up the phone. "I appreciate the opportunity," he told ESPN's producers that day in July 2010. "I apologize for that being one of the worst games ever called. " The former Maryland striker had thought he knew the media well. For nine seasons, before a severe concussion ended his professional soccer career in 2008, he had been a star for Major League Soccer's New England Revolution - and when you score a lot of goals, you get a lot of interviews.
