Baby do Brasil
Thursday, July 21 at 8 pm

Baby do Brasil is considered one of the biggest Brazilian singers, and a music legend who has been revolutionizing the history of the Popular Brazilian Music (MPB). Baby is famous for her soft, indescribable and unique voice, and strong rhythmic versatility not only in her ballads but also in her electric songs. 

Her recent work Baby Sucessos premiered at the end of 2012 at the Jockey Club in Rio de Janeiro in front of an estimated 5000 people. Since then, Baby has been selling out at the biggest venues in the country, resulting in the production of her much-awaited CD and DVD.

Redesigning The World Cup 2014 Brazil

From a football perspective this is a great World Cup, but from a designers perspective it’s not that great. Please let us explain: The World Cup of 2014 in Brazil is at it’s peak, and so far we have simply been spoiled with great goals and surprising outcomes. But when it comes to the visual way of games appearing on our TV screens, we can’t hide the fact that we’re disappointed in the outcome.

The secret history of Brazilian resistance cinema

Think of Brazilian cinema and you probably think of 2002's City of God (Cidade de Deus), but whilst Meirelles’ film was the first for a long time to achieve success on such a global scale, it is part of a long tradition of socially conscious, political and really good cinema being made in Brazil. 

We've compiled a list of some of the best moments in Brazil’s cinematic resistance.

The Confederados 

The Confederados were individuals from the U.S. Confederate states who left the American South and resettled in São Paulo, Brazil, immediately after the Civil War. Although the exact number of individuals is difficult to determine, between 2,000 and 4,000 emigrants are estimated to have participated in the movement between 1865 and 1875. Leading researchers of the topic have identified 154 families that arrived in Brazil during this time, with 37 families being from Alabama. About half the total number eventually returned to the United States, whereas the remainder established themselves in their new homeland and went on to have a significant influence on local society. The immigrants and their descendants are referred to as the Confederados, which is Portuguese for "Confederates."

Most of the Confederado settlers near the town of Americana earned livings as farmers. They introduced new crops, including Rattlesnake watermelons and pecans, and brought new agricultural technology to Brazil, including the moldboard plow to cut through and turn the soil, improved carts, and better techniques for managing draft animals. Many settlers, including the elder Norris, soon became adept at instructing neighboring Brazilians in farming methods. Although initially focused on cotton, their fields soon became devoted to the locally ubiquitous cash crops: coffee and sugar cane. Descendants of the group founded schools focused on practical technical education. These institutions contrasted from the majority of schools in Brazil, which emphasized a classical education. The Confederados also attracted Protestant missionaries who preached in the local community chapel. The origins of the Baptist and Methodist churches in Brazil can be attributed largely to the arrival of the group.

Brazil Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari Resigns After World Cup Failure

The once-popular coach was loudly booed by fans after Brazil ended the home tournament on Saturday. Despite high expectations, Brazil struggled throughout the competition, finishing with three wins, two draws and two losses.

Among those touted to replace Scolari are Tite and Muricy Ramalho, who have been successful with local clubs in recent years. Ramalho is a four-time Brazilian champion, while Tite led popular Corinthians to the Club World Cup title in 2012. There is also talk in local media about international coaches, including Pep Guardiola, Jose Mourinho, and Chile's Argentine coach Jorge Sampaoli.

SAO PAULO (AP) — Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari resigned after the team failed to win the World Cup, the Brazilian Football Confederation said Monday. Scolari promised to win the tournament at home, but Brazil was eliminated in...

Did you know?
Listed below are a few fun facts about the 2014 World Cup.

- After 64 years, Brazil is hosting the World Cup for the second time. The first time was in 1950 during the 4th World Cup, and the Stadium Maracanã in Rio de Janeiro was specially built to host it. Brazil went to the finals but lost to Uruguay 2-1. - For the first time, two consecutive World Cups will not be hosted in Europe. The 2010 World Cup was held in South Africa.

- The World Cup is the most widely viewed and followed sporting event in the world - exceeding even the Olympic Games. According to Fifa, an estimated 715.1 million people watched the final match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup held in Germany and the 2010 event in South Africa was broadcast to 204 countries on 245 different channels.

- A Simpsons episode has been dedicated to the 2014 World Cup. The title of the 30 minute episode is You Don’t Have to Live Like a Referee and aired on March 30 2014. In the episode Homer and his family go to Brazil where Homer is recruited as a referee for the World Cup. Brazilian gangsters in the soccer match-fixing business put his integrity on the test. The cartoon predicts Germany will beat Brazil 2-0 in the Final. (Watch it here: You Don't Have to Live Like a Referee | In Fifteen.)

- Juliano Pinto, a man with paralysis, made the first symbolic kick of the World Cup in a mind-controlled exoskeleton suit. This has all been made possible by the Walk Again Project (http://magazine.colostate.edu/), a nonprofit international collaboration of researchers that focuses on using technology to help people with paralysis walk again. This event showed that one day wheelchairs may cease to exist.
