Important World Cup Updates

The US managed to survive yet another appalling lapse of officiating and beat Algeria 1-0 on a goal in stoppage time. Simultaneously (in some frame of reference), England beat Slovenia 1-0. With South Korea advancing yesterday, countries with current or forthcoming editions of How to Teach Physics to Your Dog are 3-0 when it comes to advancing past group play. Meanwhile, France, where rights have not yet sold, was eliminated.

I'm also happy to report that Spanish translation rights have been sold, and a translation is in progress, so Spain can go into their final group play game without worrying about dog-physics karma. This leaves Germany as the major European nation still lacking an edition of How to Teach Physics to Your Dog, heading into their game against Ghana. You've got eight minutes to buy those rights, German publishers...

Hmm, how are the German rights doing?
