Spanish bank puts up Cristiano Ronaldo as collateral

Spanish bank puts up Cristiano Ronaldo as collateral. Cristiano Ronaldo, the most expensive footballer in history, has joined the European Central Bank (ECB) on a free transfer. Sources say the authorities want his help on the sovereign debt crisis by kicking the can further down the road.

Well, not quite. But Ronaldo could feasibly become ECB property after he was pledged as collateral for emergency liquidity support by Spain's struggling savings bank, Bankia. In 2009, one of the Spanish banks that has since become Bankia lent Real Madrid €76.5m (£67m) to pay the transfer fees for both Ronaldo and Kaka, the Brazilian forward.

Arnold Schwarzenegger museum opens in Austria

Arnold Schwarzenegger museum opens in Austria
 Arnold Schwarzenegger museum opens in Austria. The world's first museum dedicated to former "Governator" and Mister Universe Arnold Schwarzenegger opened its doors Saturday in his birthplace of Thal in southern Austria.

The "Styrian Oak" himself was absent for the event, which was timed to coincide with his 64th birthday. But Schwarzenegger will attend a grander opening at a later date, organizers said.

Visitors, mostly locals, gathered for a first look at the two-story light yellow house in Thal, southern Styria, restored to look as it did when Schwarzenegger first came into the world on July 30, 1947.

Among the 1,000 objects and photos on display are his very first weights, with which the future champion bodybuilder started training, as well as the desk behind which he sat as California governor.

Monitors also recall Schwarzenegger's Hollywood career, with trailers from his various films, while a life-size model of his "Terminator" stands in a corner.

Exactly when Schwarzenegger will visit his first home for the grand opening was still unclear, but he was expected to bring with him a 10-foot (three-meter) high bronze statue he commissioned from a US artist to adorn the outside of the museum.

Interrupted Sleep Memory

Interrupted Sleep Memory
Interrupted Sleep Memory. A new study seems to confirm what exhausted parents have long suspected but may have been too tired to articulate. Lack of sleep turns the brain to mush. More precisely, waking up too frequently prevents the brain from forming new memories.

Although these results come from a study of mice, some sleep-deprived mothers - including the study's author - say the findings ring true. Sleep researcher Asya Rolls, like many mothers, suffered from "momnesia," the mental fog that sets in shortly after delivery and may continue until youngsters sleep consistently through the night.

"I can remember my children as babies, but it's a very hazy memory, based mostly on photographs and videos," says Rolls, a researcher at Stanford University and co-author of a study in this week's Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
