World Cup Knockout Round – Day 3

Sweden 1-0 Canada Canada dominated the first half but couldn’t score. The Swedes drew blood in the second half and that was enough with Hedvig Lindahl protecting their goal. Lindahl won Player of the Match for an amazing stop on a Canadian penalty shot that would have tied the match.

Spain 1-2 USA The Roja’s Hermoso scored the first goal against the US in this World Cup. US scoring was two penalty shots by Megan Rapinoe. Spain is ready to play at this level. It wasn’t an elegant win by the US, but it was enough to move on to the quarterfinals.

North Korea’s Kim Jong-un receives ‘excellent’ letter from Trump:

North Korea leader Kim Jong-un has received a personal letter from US President Donald Trump, state media has reported.

Mr. Kim praised the letter as “excellent” and said he would “seriously contemplate the interesting content,” the KCNA news agency said.

He also praised Mr. Trump’s “extraordinary courage”.

Earlier this month, Mr. Trump said a beautiful letter had been sent to him by the North Korean leader.

This is just creepy. They sound like tweens with crushes instead of national leaders discussing nuclear disarmament. This is not a healthy environment. The good news is neither one is capable of long walks in the moonlight. 😈

Peñafiel Mineral Spring Water pulled from stores:

Keurig Dr. Pepper Inc., the company that makes this brand of bottled water, said Peñafiel unflavored mineral spring water products are involved in the market withdrawal. It wrote in a statement Friday that it is voluntarily pulling the products, which are sold at Target and Walmart, and possibly other vendors.

Gee, arsenic is a mineral, so what’s the problem? 😈

People keep thinking that water in a plastic bottle is safer than tap water. Most of the water in those bottles comes from underdeveloped countries, with underdeveloped pollution regulations. Any testing for purity is done by the bottler, and we all know how well self-regulation works.
