Reading, Writing, Arithmetic #14

A great weekend for America in general you might say, what with July 4th celebrations, and then the World Cup victory last night. The women’s contest was thrilling and thoroughly entertaining. In fact, a remarkable tournament in all. The final, though, opened in style. Sadly for you if you tuned in twenty minutes or so after the kick-off. In fact, five minutes late and you’d have missed two Carli Lloyd goals giving USA a ridiculously early lead. The contest was kind of over soon after, and with it the bombarding coverage across the internet was incredible (apart from ludicrous and tasteless Pearl Harbor references) – cyberspace was in danger of imploding because of women playing football. Nice.

What else might you have missed then? Some concise movie lists, invaluable screenwriting opinion, not to mention some refreshingly pleasing photographs celebrating the July 4th weekend across Instagram (which I admit I don’t use myself – should I?). Take a look:
