Ronaldo scored 41 goals for the season, 31 of which came in the premier league. Chelsea drew with Bolton to bag the second place. Before the last day Chelsea and Man UTD were equal on points.

Christiano Ronaldo scored a penalty in the first half after Rooney was brought down in the box by the Wigan defence. Ronaldo stepped up to score the penalty sending Kirkland in the wrong way. Ryan Giggs made his 758th appearance for Man Utd and he scored the winning goal in the 84th minute.

I signed up for PPP!!!

When I started blogging, I had no clue that i would earn money. I started to blog on my own interest. Along with my friends I started sharing my experiences in a written format using the blog. Various readers appreciated our work and then I thought of starting a blog alone. There I wrote almost about everything. Then I heard from one of my friends that I can earn money out of blogging. This made me more enthusiastic about blogging. When you know that you will get paid to blog then there comes the energy and the interest. I first heard about Payperpost from my friend. He had all praises for the website. I initially did not believe his words but after I signed up my whole idea about Payperpost has changed. Let me take you through this website.

Payperpost is a website which links advertisers and bloggers together. Each have a set of rules to be followed, breaking of which will lead to the rejection of your profile. Being a blogger myself let me explain the advantages that the blogger can get through this website. A blogger first needs to submit his profile and his blog. The Payperpost team will review your blog and this process of reviewing our blog is very quick and genuine. After your blog has been approved you enter the world of opportunities. Lots of opportunities are provided to the bloggers, from which they can choose the apt one. After writing the reviews for the advertisers, the bloggers can submit their task. This again goes for approval to the advertisers. If your post is approved then you will get the quoted money without any trouble. To get the money all that you need is a paypal account. This is my experience from Payperpost. So I would request all bloggers to sign up for PPP and enjoy its benefits.

Clintons have earned more than $100m in 8 years.

Hillary Clinton and her husband, ex-President Bill Clinton, have revealed they earned more than $100m in eight years.

Since 2000, the former first couple took in nearly $110m, with more than $20m made in 2007, and gave more than $10m to charity in the same period.

Almost half of the income was made from the former president's speeches.

Last week Obama published seven years of tax returns on his website.

The data showed he earned nearly $1 million in 2006, nearly half of it coming from the publication of his second book, The Audacity of Hope.

In previous financial disclosures, Sen McCain has listed his primary sources of income as his Senate salary of $170,000 and his Naval pension of around $56,000.

IPL starts with a blast!!!

The latest trend that has been set in cricket is twenty20. This new format has saw a lot of fans as it is a short and an exciting format of the game. Recently Kapil Dev's ICL had seen a few absorbing series. It was now the turn of the world's richest board BCCI to kick off with its own IPL(Indian Premier League). When it comes to BCCI we know that there is a lot of money revolving around them. So it was expected that this series will be well organized. As expected the inaugral ceremony of IPL was very grand!!! There were dancers from various parts of the country, who performed with a lot of grace. Gymnasts went about swinging about in the air, which made the crowd go mad.. Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy gave their performances which was the perfect kick start needed.. The captains made their pledges which was then followed by an enthralling match.

It was Kolkata vs Bangalore, maybe Rahul vs Dada or Malya vs SRK would be fitting. Rahul won the toss and elected to field. Kolkata came into bat with NewZealand wicket keeper McCullum and captain Dada. Right from the first ball the fire was set. Shots started blazing from the bats of McCullum. On the other end Dada found it hard to combat the swing bowling of Praveen Kumar and Zaheer. Eventually Dada was out and Ponting joined in to give company to McCullum. Fearless McCullum played the innings of his life which made Chinnasamy Stadium go ablaze.
His innings of 158 of 73 balls was the best by any batsman in this format of the game. This innings of his consisted of 10 fours and 13 huge sixes. Bangalore bowlers suffered heavy pounding in the hands of McCullum. With useful contributions from Ponting and Hussey the Knight Riders set a target of 223. It was the turn of Royal Challengers to bat. Ishant and Dinda were too good and broke the back of the Royal Challengers batting. With Dravid departing in the very second over none of the Bangalore batsman could get in. Agarkar took 3 wickets while Ganguly chipped in with 2. Vijay Malya's Royal Challengers had no answer to SRK's Knight Riders. They were bundled out for a meager 82 giving a 140 run win to the Knight Riders. McCullum was undoubtedly the man of the match.

India level series!!!!

India went on to level the series at Kanpur with an emphatic win over the proteas. Day 3 started with Sreesanth and Ishant Sharma at the crease. The proteas would have thought that they would clean up the tail in no time. But both the tail-enders had other ideas. They extended the lead to 60 runs. This was a handy lead on a crumbling pitch. The Indians made full use of the pitch.

When the proteas came into bat they weern't allowed to get away with easy runs. Both SreeSanth and Harbhajan bowled with accuracy. The successful opening pair didn't give it away either. They were battling it out in the middle. Both Smith and McKenzie were finding it very hard to combat the pitch and it seemed that a wicket was on the cards at any moment. Finally SreeSanth got the break through with the ball keeping low. McKenzie was out when the score was 26. Amla soon followed when Harbhajan got one to spin and bounce from the rough while Jaffer pulled of a good catch. South Africa were 27 for 2 at lunch. It was now the turn for South Africa's most experienced pair to lead the fight back. Both battled it out well in the middle. They went past the lead. Dhoni's bowling changes were working well. He brought on Sehwag and he did the trick for India. He first got Kallis and then Smith by bowling him round the legs. South Africa were 88 for 4 at tea. After tea none of the South African batsmen could apply themselves in the crease. Eventually they were bowled out for 121. This gave a meagre target of 64 for India to achieve.

Sehwag went about in his style hitting 2 sixes of Harris. He was out attempting a similar shot of Harris. Jaffer soon followed lbw to Morkel. Indians were 32 for 2. Then the pair of Dravid and Ganguly led India to an 8 wicket victory to level the series. India held their no 2 spot in tests. Sourav Ganguly was named man of the match while Harbhajan bagged the man of the series.

Quota system to be enforced in IIMs

It was already said in this blog that there would be a fee hike in all the IIMs. Following this it was heard that quota system will also come into effect in the IIMs. HRD ministry will be sending instructions to the top B-schools like IIMs to enforce the 27 percent OBC reservation which was the decision by the Supreme Court. This instructions will be intimated in another 4 to 5 days.

HRD Minister Arjun Singh earlier in the day said there was no confusion about implementation of quota in IIMs and IITs and the Supreme Court judgement would be followed in these premier institutions.

Sources said the IIMs are by and large prepared to implement the quota as one year has gone by and that they will leave it to the institutions on the implementation aspect of the reservation.

If these institutions have any problem, they could come back to the ministry and 'that it will be resolved by them, they said adding it was for each institute to decide to what extent they can introduce quota in the first year of implementation.

The sources said the fund would start flowing to the IIMS when Parliament approves the demands for grants.
