Ronnie 0''Sullivan - the legend
Ronnie O' Sullivan , nicknamed "the Rocket" ( born 1975), 3 times world champion and occupied the world No 1 player on 5 occasions is the most talented player in the history of the game according to most pundits....a 1st century break at 10 years of age, a maximum score possible of 147 at age 15 and turned professional at 16 ! O'Sullivan is right-handed, but can play to a high standard with his left hand. While not quite possessing the same power in his left arm he is genuinely ambidextrous. His style of playing is fast and attacking which with all his other qualities makes him a genius and the biggest draw in snooker.
He has had a rough life and background. His parents have both served time. His mother, Maria, for tax evasion and his father, was sentenced to 18 years for murder and is still serving term. His marriage life was also pretty bad and personally he has been guilty of many offences (e.g.: guilty of assaulting an official, drink and drug addictions abuse, poor conduct and gross misbehavior). As such he is not an Icon but a genius, he is.
Watch this 147 break (the highest break possible) in just 5 minutes. Enjoy.

It is only now that it started a new potential for advertisements, a very costly method at present.
NEW DELHI | MUMBAI:Date 21st Sepember 2010 :Volkswagen’s advertisement for its Vento sedan has become the talk of the town, literally and figuratively. On Tuesday, readers of The Times of India in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune and Chennai woke up to the surprise of their newspaper ‘speaking’ to them about the Vento, the first ever advertising campaign of this type in the world.
The device was a cheap vacu formed plastic box with a photo-transistor and a speaker.
A single chip MP3 player with two button-call batteries, played the sound clip.
The open plastic box containing the embedded electronics
was closed and cemented to the newspaper with a double-sided adhesive foam sheet.
Since the idea of a talking newspaper catering to the blind and handicapped is over 35 years old and the new technology is available now, I suggest the original idea is transformed into a practical reality to help the blind and handicapped in India to be knowledgable without even the other handicapp of the language barrier.
