New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick responded to questions yesterday about “DeflateGate”. He said: “All right I’ll start off by addressing the football issue here. When I came in Monday morning I was shocked to learn of the news reports about the footballs. I had no knowledge whatsoever of the situation until Monday morning. I would say I’ve learned a lot more about this process in the past three days than I knew or have talked about it in the last 40 years that I’ve coached in this league. I had no knowledge of the various steps involved in the game balls and the process that they went through that happened between when they were prepared and went to the officials and went into the game. So I’ve learned a lot about that. Tom’s personal preferences on his footballs are something that he can talk about in much better detail and information than I could possibly provide.''
Survey: "Many people think Bill Belichick is covering for Tom Brady. Have you ever covered for someone? If so, who, and what happened?"

Having trouble sleeping? A California company has launched a spray that helps you fall asleep at the touch of a button. Sprayable Sleep delivers melatonin; a natural hormone produced by the body that tells you when to nod off. They say you simply apply the spray to your skin and the melatonin is slowly absorbed into your system, as opposed to in pill form where the dose happens all at once. A statement on the website says: "A few sprays on the neck an hour before bedtime, and better sleep is on the way." Sprayable Sleep has already raised over $47,000 after only two days on crowdfunding website Indiegogo. They were only looking for $15,000. The product is expected to be available from July and costs $15 for a month's supply. (Ananova)
Measure Your Feet Day -- If you want to know what someone is really like, take a look at their feet, according to Dr. Nancy Sax, the world's leading personality on feet analysis.
Second toe larger than the others: You're the dependable, conservative type who always keeps your emotions in check. These types fare very well in the fields of medicine, banking and science. They're good providers, but don't expect any excitement or fireworks.
Big third toe: Look out! These unpredictable types have hot-and-cold personalities, they're totally charming one moment then erupt in a volcanic fit of anger the next.
Big baby toe: These people spread sunshine wherever they go.
Long toes: The sign of great intellectual capacity - these are the thinkers of the world. Authors, philosophers and great world leaders often have very long toes.
Little toes: These folks don't like to make a scene. But their little toes don't mean you can walk all over them! When backed up against the wall, they'll stand up and fight.
Wide feet: These folks are the backbone of society, the hard workers who have strong family values and dedication to their church, family and community.
Narrow feet: The shy, quiet type who don't like to draw attention to themselves. Beneath the shy exteriors is a relaxed, well-balanced person.
Webbed toes: A fun person who won't duck a good time! These extroverts are the life-of-the party types and make great salesmen and entertainers.
