I must say that all of us had probably encountered moments likes when you try to go to a certain website, you would be directed to page where in you can see a white background and words in bold text and reads 500 Internal Server Error. It often annoys us because it would inculcate into our minds that the website we are trying to look might be in trouble or we can’t have certain information that we want because we can’t access the website.
These words that we were able to read are one those HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) response status codes. It might be confusing now but some computer geeks they truly understood these. Let’s start with the HTTP or the HyperText Transfer Protocol. It is an Application Layer protocol for distributed, collaborative, hypermedia information systems. It comes in a very complex system wherein several chracaters of events are involved which leads to a page in the internet which answers the questions we have in our minds every time we search on something. If you can observe, this HTTP can be often found in the beginning of every URL that appears in out browser bar.
If the site that we would try to find has encountered error there would always be a HTTP response status codes. Some codes are accompanied with reasons. When we see 500 Internal Server Error, it is a generic error message, given when no more specific message is suitable. This code has been encountered last Monday when the Youtube website was being accessed. There must have been something wrong that has happened. It lasted 1 hour but eventually the widely used website was able to return in the internet world.

Two Red Bull teams dominated the game. Fortunately, it didn’t rain on the track and this was a relief in the Malaysian Sepang Track! We are all glad to watch the race get finished without rain interruptions.
Anyway, First place went to Sebastian Vettel and his fans were really proud of him. Second place went to Mark Webber in the podium. Both of them are from Red Bull – Renault teams. Third in the podium was Nico Rosberg for Mercedes. Nico is Michael Schumacher’s team mate. Michael however is nowhere to be found on the top 10 this race. He was doing okay on the last two races but he just was not fortunate enough today and in face he retired on lap 9.

They has been described as being the Cinderella in this season but coach Brad Stevens doesn’t care. “I don’t care about being called a Cinderella or a mid-major. We don’t have resources that other teams have, and that’s just a fact. But resources don’t win games. We have a lot of guys with big hearts.” — Butler coach Brad Stevens. For all their critics they should all shut up now, because Cinderella has proven its worth.
Butler, being the first team who were able to make it first to qualify for the Final Four has really made all the way. One more win and Indianapolis would have been so proud. Being the host this year, having their own team playing would be of great pride. The Bulldogs defeated top seeded teams and now emerged as being one of them.
Gordon Hayward had 19 points and nine rebounds, including one with 2 seconds left that sealed the game and has been the reason of their win against the famous Michigan St.
