Yahoo chief executive Terry Semel also revealed that the company would delay the launch of its new advertising platform, dubbed Project Panama, until the final quarter of 2006.

Yahoo’s net income for the quarter to June slumped 78% to $164. 3m, or 11 cents per share. The figure was in line with Wall Street forecasts, after earnings in the equivalent quarter of last year were skewed by a windfall from the sale of Yahoo’s stake in rival Google… Yahoo also suffered from changes to stock option accounting rules this year which depressed its headline income. Sales sales surged 26% in the quarter to $1. 58 billion, helped by higher traffic from viewers logging on to watch the World Cup football online. Yahoo was the official Internet partner for football’s world governing body FIFA and reported that the site for the games drew a record level of online traffic – 4. 2 billion ‘page views’.

BBC SPORT | Football | My Club | Liverpool | Kuyt ready to decide his…
BBC News – Jul 17, 2006
Kuyt, 25, has asked for time off to make a final decision on whether to quit the club, and recently revealed Liverpool had made an approach. Holland’s ?10m-rated World Cup star has also been a target for Newcastle. He told Dutch sports paper AD Sportwereld: “I have an arrangement with coach Erwin Koeman that I can take some days to think about my future. ”

Liverpool’s move for Kuyt appears to depend on whether they can clinch a deal for Sevilla’s Brazilian right-sided player Daniel Alves. Sevilla are demanding ?12m, which would virtually exhaust manager Rafael Benitez’s transfer budget. If he pulls out of a move and switches attention to Birmingham City’s Jermaine Pennant, he could then have enough cash to fund a move for Kuyt.

but during the last thirty days, the hostel had been marked by bee-hive activity even at two thirty in the night and the once place of monomaniacal minds, the TV room, had become the venue for majority’s mid-night appointment. The tournament called FIFA world cup had triggered this transition in our deportment. In fact this contagious amnesia towards one’s milieu had been universal and our hostel had not been immune to it. Of all the experiences our age has relished from sport, the greatest one probably is unpredictability- the genuine ability of providing the suspense like a movie by Alfred Hitchcock. When Figo’s header missed the goalpost by a whisker against France, almost every fan suffered a heart attack. The gripping feature of football, making us glued to our seats till the final whistle, like Dan Brown’s Da Vinci code, makes it the leader in sport… Of all the experiences our age has relished from sport, the greatest one probably is unpredictability- the genuine ability of providing the suspense like a movie by Alfred Hitchcock. When Figo’s header missed the goalpost by a whisker against France, almost every fan suffered a heart attack. The gripping feature of football, making us glued to our seats till the final whistle, like Dan Brown’s Da Vinci code, makes it the leader in sport. Some of us finished our meals early; some abandoned them completely lest they should miss the action. There was tremendous enigma, sometime from the most unanticipated of quarters. When most of us were convinced that Brazil would make a cakewalk to take the trophy back home, it was driven to ignominy in the quarterfinals itself. The next day, I enquired a dozen inmates and only when I saw the newspaper, I believed that the unbelievable had happened.
