Saint Patrick’s Day, March 17th, 2012 Little is known of Patrick's early life, though it is known that he was born in Roman Britain in the 4th century, into a wealthy Roman British family. His father and grandfather were deacons in the Church. At the age of sixteen, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and taken captive to Ireland as a slave. It is believed he was held somewhere on the west coast of Ireland, possibly Mayo, but the exact location is unknown. According to his Confession, he was told by God in a dream to flee from captivity to the coast, where he would board a ship and return to Britain. Upon returning, he quickly joined the Church in Auxerre in Gaul and studied to be a priest.

Daylight Savings, Sunday March 11th, 2012
Daylight saving time is the practice of temporarily advancing clocks during the summertime so that evenings have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically, clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn. Modern DST was first proposed in 1895 by George Vernon-Judson and it was first implemented during the First World War. Many countries have used it at carious time since thing.

Africa Cup Of Nations 2012 free for Android
The 28th Africa Cup of Nations will take place in West Africa and is hosted by two countries, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea. The matches will be played in stadiums across both countries in the following cities: Libreville, Malabo, Bata, and Franceville. The tournament kicks off on January 21, 2012 in Bata (Equatorial Guinea), with the final taking place on February 12, in Libreville (Gabon).
Sudan is the only East African nation in the tournament but Sudan started qualifying as one country, and is now two. Players from both Sudan, and what is now South Sudan, will be playing to win and hopefully this will be a chance for the people to feel a bond of unity. Libya and Tunisia will both still be playing despite going through revolutions in 2011
That's the power of soccer in Africa, nothing will stop the game from being played! Although the Libyan team will not be playing in their traditional green shirts, instead they'll be sporting new shirts bearing the pre-Gadhafi national flag. Togo did play for a spot in the tournament despite the horrific attack they endured in Angola, 2010. Unfortunately they failed to qualify. Egypt also failed to qualify despite winning the tournament a record seven times, including the last tournament played in Angola in 2010.
Next game is today, at 1PM. Ivory Coast v. Angola playing at the Stade d'Angondie!
