The Apprentice, Asian Tsunami and Football...!

Wednesday, December 29, 2004

Whoah..! Apprentice Season 1 ended on Star World yesterday with Bill winning and thus, earning the title The Apprentice to the Donald. Entertaining series I would say and I look forward to the next. Meanwhile, the third season will begin next month in the US and Donald Trump is turning his next prime-time boardroom from a battle of the sexes into a contest between "book smarts" and "street smarts." ACcording to a short sypnosis of the third season, 'A team of nine college graduates faces off against a group of nine entrepreneurs whose formal education ended with high school when the third edition of NBC's hit reality show The Apprentice debuts on January 20'. Interesting huh?

Update on the Asian tsunami disaster, the death toll passed 68,000 today as the sea and wreckage of coastal towns across Asia yielded tens of thousands of bodies. Aid has began to pour in for the most costliest disaster in history with the United States offering a total of US$35 million, followed by Japan with US$30 million. Australia has now pledged US$27 million, Saudi Arabia US$10 million and Germany US$2.7 million. There are more of course from various European countries and South Americas as well and other non-monetary aid.

Finally, on football.. Chelsea moved eight points clear of Arsenal with a hard fought 2-0 victory at Portsmouth. It took Jose Mourinho's side until the 79th minute to find a way through the home defence as Robben added to his Premiership tally. And the Blues grabbed a second at the death courtesy of Joe Cole. Man Utd's 1-0 win over Aston Villa kept their title challenge on course with Giggs' scoring a goal. With that, Man Utd, move to third place and one point behind the Arsenal. :)
