That was a doozy.

Germany drew Ghana 2-2 on Saturday, delaying the Europeans' advancement to the knockout stage at the 2014 World Cup. All four goals were scored in 20 minutes during the second half.

On Sunday night, the USA and Portugal played to a 2-2 draw. The United States plays Germany this coming Thursday in a do-or-die match that will decide which teams will advance out of Group G, which is also known as the "Group of Death."

"She leaves a wonderful legacy of thousands of lives saved and countless injuries prevented by products made possible by her discovery," DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman said in a statement.

The Netflix club just keeps growing.

Comedian Chelsea Handler announced she's moving her nightly talk show to the popular streaming network.

“If I was going to continue working in this industry, I knew I had to do something outside the box to keep myself interested," Handler said in a statement. "I wanted to sit with the cool kids at lunch so I approached Netflix to make sure they were as cool as I thought they were, and when I confirmed my suspicions, like with any other future lover, I made my move."

The talk show will premiere in early 2016.
