Image Two year-old octopus Paul, the so-called ''octopus oracle'' predicts Spain's victory in their 2010 World Cup semi-final soccer match against Germany by choosing a mussel, from a glass box decorated with the Spanish national flag instead of a glass box with the German flag, at the Sea Life Aquarium in the western German city of Oberhausen July 6, 2010. Paul has correctly picked the winner of Germany's five World Cup results so far.

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany was in a state of shock on Tuesday after their "oracle octopus" Paul picked Spain to win the World Cup semi-final match against Germany in South Africa on Wednesday.The girlshoesstore sale [color=#0066cc]louboutin shoes : we provide the most beautiful shoes to you .if you love it ,just action right now .all of our products are free shipping and you there are no other charges ,you just pay for you shoes only .besides the more you buy the more favourable terms you can get .we promise ,we will provide you the best products and the cheapest price .

Not an ordinarily superstitious people, Germans have become believers in Paul's possible psychic powers.
"This is not a good omen," wrote Bild newspaper's online edition after the news of Paul's pick flashed across Germany.The NFL-2010 jerseys [color=#800080]wholesale nfl jerseys: If you buy the products in our websites ,all you buy is free shipping .and the price is more cheaper to other websites .besides ,you just pay for the products only ,there are no other charges to pay .what’s more the more you buy the more favourable terms you can get .we promise we will provide you the best products and the cheapest price .just action right now .[/color]
The octopus has turned into an international celebrity after accurately picking the winner of all five German World Cup matches to date -- including their 1-0 loss to Serbia.
Two national networks interrupted their programing on Tuesday for live coverage of Paul's latest forecast, and groans of disappointment rang out across Germany after Paul went for a container with a morsel of food in it bearing the Spanish flag.
"We were all a little bit shocked when Paul picked Spain," said Tanja Munzig, a spokeswoman for Sea Life in Oberhausen. "To err is not only human -- animals can also make mistakes. Let's hope Paul got this one wrong."
The octopus, considered by some to be the most intelligent of all invertebrates, was again given the choice of picking food from two different transparent containers lowered into his tank -- one with a German flag on it and one with a Spanish.
The container Paul opens first is regarded as his pick for the match. Paul first put his tentacles around the German container before moving to his left to the Spanish box -- first opening the lid and then snatching the morsel of food inside.The [color=#800080]nfl jerseys : we will give you almost 40%-50% off if you buy the products in our websites .and all the products is free shipping .besides ,there are no other charges to pay .if you are ready to buy large volume of our products ,we will give you the lower price to buy our products .we promise we will provide the best products and the cheapest price to you .
Germans stunned by Paul's decision to pick Spain took consolation in the fact that Paul got one of his five picks wrong at the Euro in 2008. Oddly enough it also involved Spain: In the final Paul picked Germany over Spain. But Spain won 1-0.
It was Paul's only inaccurate pick of that tournament. He has never been wrong since and has an overall record of 9-1.The u [color=#0066cc]jordan shoes :if you buy the products in our websites ,we will provide you the reasonable price(we can give you almost 60% off ) and then all of the products you buy are free shipping , besides, there are no other charges to pay .if you buy large volume of our products ,we will give you the VIP price ,which you can get a lot of tangible benefit from it .,we promise we will provide the best products and the cheapest price to you .
"Maybe Paul was just trying to give Spain a false sense of security," said Munzig, who said scores of journalists were at Sea Life to witness Paul's latest pick. Thousands of people have visited Sea Life to see Germany's newest celebrity.
"To be honest I'm going to have butterflies in my stomach watching the Spain match," she added. "I'm not a superstitious person but he's had an incredible winning streak so far."
Paul was born in England. He has been five for five at the World Cup. He picked Germany wins over Australia, Ghana, England and Argentina -- as well as their Group D loss to Serbia.
Media attention over Paul's picks in Germany and abroad has grown with each pick and some commentators have even wondered aloud whether his uncanny run might even be having an influence on superstitious players.
Paul's winning streak may have contributed to a growing superstition among the Germany team.
Germany coach Joachim Loew admitted he will not wash a favorite blue sweater as long as his team keeps winning. Loew said he bowed to pressure from other coaching staff and players to keep wearing the sweater for their matches.Some describe of our products .

Every time Loew wore the blue V-neck sweater Germany scored four goals. "I am not even allowed to wash it now and I think I will wear it again (against Spain)," Loew said on Monday.

Dans un entretien ? Mediapart, l'ex-s?nateur socialiste, qui ne doute pas de ses chances d'?tre d?sign? (c'est un euph?misme), estimait ? la veille de la F?te de ? L'Humanit? ? qu'? il ne peut pas y avoir de querelles d'ego. Qu'a-t-on ? dire de tr?s diff?rent ,nike tn s'interrogeait-il, avant de poursuivre : ? sur tous les th?mes, on est d'accord. On va choisir entre celui qui a une moustache et celui qui vient du Midi ? ? En ?cho aux propos du leader du Parti de gauche, Pierre Laurent a ajout? qu'il se portait ? garant ? du fait que ? la guerre des ego n'aura pas lieu ?.

La direction du Parti communiste pourrait, en fait, ?tre tent?e par un compromis : ? Jean-Luc M?lenchon la pr?sidentielle et au PCF, qui est une formation d'?lus, les postes de conseillers g?n?raux lors des ?lections cantonales du printemps prochain et, surtout, les candidats pour les ?lections l?gislatives de 2012. Dans cette perspective, la candidature d'Andr? Chassaigne lui servirait ? d?courager quelques communistes orthodoxes de monter en premi?re ligne contre l'ex-s?nateur socialiste. Alors que 58 % des Fran?ais estiment que le PCF est un parti condamn? ? dispara?tre (sondage Ifop pour ? La Lettre de l'opinion ? et qu'ils sont autant ? juger que le PCF ne s'est pas transform? la candidature de M?lenchon ? la pr?sidentielle permettrait peut-?tre de faire oublier le score de 1,93 % obtenu par Marie-George Buffet en 2007. ? Pour ?tre encore communiste en 2011, il faut avoir le sens de l'humour ! ? s'amusait ce week-end un militant.
