U.S. Open, Ardmore, 10-16 June
We start with one of the four majors, and with the Masters now out of the way, the U.S Open is undoubtedly the tournament to see over the pond.
Held at the Merion Golf Club in Pennsylvania just outside of Philadelphia in June, the action will be played out on the Ardmore East Course — regularly voted as the best on the face of the earth.
American Webb Simpson will be looking to defend the title he won last year while Tiger Woods will no doubt be in the hunt for his first major win since 2008.

The voice of a generation
Robert Zimmerman, also known as Bob Dylan, is one of the greatest musicians with a career spanning over fifty years and 35 albums behind him. In the early sixties, Dylan became the voice of his generation; his music connected folk, blues and traditional music, transferring a message of freedom while opposing hypocrisy and the rule of "the man". His beginnings were defined by pairing the acoustic guitar and harmonica, accompanied by his distinctive vocal style. Just as the audiences started accepting his musical expression and status as a protest singer, Dylan did a sudden stylistic turn. This turn was first exposed on Bringing It All Back Home, an album widely criticized at the time.

In a his new music video "Mirrors," Justin Timberlake takes his fans on a deep and personal journey, and in doing so, gives them a glimpse into the singer’s private emotional world.
Taken from 20/20 Experience, his first album since 2006, "Mirrors" is both a tribute to his grandparents and an examination of his own life and journey into love.
"For William and Sadie"
The video opens with a simple but elegant black-on-white cursive script that reads “For William and Sadie,” Timberlake’s grandfather and grandmother, who were married for 63 years before William passed away in 2012.
An image of a young woman, crying and distressed in a bedroom, is flashed briefly and then replaced by an elderly woman in the same bedroom. Behind the old woman is an old man, unseen to her, who mirrors every physical gesture she makes.
As the man is dressed totally in black and invisible to the woman, the viewer can presume he has died and she is mourning his passing in the bedroom they shared.

There has been much speculation around the quarterbacks of this draft class and much debate if any of them are worth a first round pick. The leaders of the draft are Geno Smith from West Virgina, Matt Barkley from USC and Ryan Nassib from Syracuse. These are the standouts and what you would consider the cream of the crop. Nothing compared to what we had last year with RGIII, Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson. Many scouts don’t even think that any of these quarterbacks are worth going in the first ten picks, let alone the first round.
However, you can read just about any mock draft online and you will see that they have Geno Smith going in the top ten and Matt Barkley going in the first round as well. So this brings up the question: are teams going to draft these quarterbacks just to draft one? Are any of these franchise guys? The answer is yes: teams will draft quarterbacks early, and no: none of these quarterbacks are franchise material.
