The final tournament of the UEFA European Football Championship EURO 2012 starts on Friday, June 8 2012. It will be hosted by Poland and Ukraine between 8 June and 1 July 2012. Because it is one of the greatest events in European Football (soccer), for those who want to follow the matches, we provide a special page:UEFA EURO 2012 match schedule and time now in Poland and Ukraine.
The page includes:
- Current UTC, current user local time, current time in Poland and Ukraine.
- Timetable of the EURO 2012 matches with time given in
UTC, Poland (CEST-Central European Summer Time), Ukraine (EEST-Estern European Summer Time)
and, probably most important – user local time. (It also includes
printable version of the EURO 2012 schedule)
- Timezone difference between Poland, Ukraine and user local time.
- Locations of Stadiums in Poland and Ukraine (google maps)
All matches during EURO 2012 are scheduled to be played at 16:00 (4:00pm) and 18:45 (6:45pm) UTC; 18:00 (6:00pm), 20:45 (8:45pm) Poland/CEST; 19:00 (7:00pm), 21:45 (9:45pm) Ukraine/EEST. Using the page, you can easily check kick-off times of the matches in your local time.

Patrick Makau from Kenya brakes men’s marathon world record on Sunday, 25 september 2011 and wins Berlin marathon. He ran 42 km and 195 meters (26.2188 miles) in 2 hours 3 minutes 38 seconds. The previous record was set by Haile Gebrselassie (Ethiopia) in 2008 on the same Berlin course.
Patrick Makau average speed during his winning marathon race in Berlin was: 42.195m/2h3m38s = 20.48km/h or 12.72 miles/hour (as you can compute in our speed calculator)

According to the Albert Einstein theory, speed of light is the Universe’s ultimate speed limit, but an experiment that have been carrying by Dr Ereditato and his team for last three years suggest neutrinos can travel faster then light.
This puzzling result from Cern has to be investigated for possible errors. As Dr Ereditato says:
“We are not claiming things, we want just to be helped by the community in understanding our crazy result -
because it is crazy”
More about experiment (OPERA detector, measurement methods, data selection, conclusions) you can read on
“Measurement of the neutrino velocity with the OPERA detector in the CNGS beam”
The OPERA neutrino experiment at the underground Gran Sasso Laboratory has measured the
velocity of neutrinos from the CERN CNGS beam over a baseline of about 730 km with much higher
accuracy than previous studies conducted with accelerator neutrinos. The measurement is based on highstatistics
data taken by OPERA in the years 2009, 2010 and 2011. Dedicated upgrades of the CNGS
timing system and of the OPERA detector, as well as a high precision geodesy campaign for the
measurement of the neutrino baseline, allowed reaching comparable systematic and statistical accuracies.
An early arrival time of CNGS muon neutrinos with respect to the one computed assuming the speed of
light in vacuum of (60.7 ± 6.9 (stat.) ± 7.4 (sys.)) ns was measured. This anomaly corresponds to a relative
difference of the muon neutrino velocity with respect to the speed of light (v-c)/c = (2.48 ± 0.28 (stat.) ±
0.30 (sys.)) ×10-5.
