Austin American-Statesman - - TUESDAYBRIEFING - Com­piled from wire re­ports

BER­LIN — Paul, the oc­to­pus who be­came a pop cul­ture sen­sa­tion by cor­rectly pre­dict­ing the out­come of as many World Cup matches as he has legs — all seven of Ger­many’s games, plus the Spain-Nether­lands fi­nal — is re­tir­ing. The in­tu­itive in­ver­te­brate will “get back to his for­mer job, namely, mak­ing chil­dren laugh,” said Tanja Mun­zig, a spokes­woman for the Sea Life aquar­ium in Ober­hausen.
