"Culture is the heritage of us all. some may be more interested than others in the treasures of the past, but no one can fail to take a pride in his country's participation in the story of mankind, as represented in carvings, sculpture, music, paintings and the other arts. And there is a personal commitment to this, for no man can really say he is alone: we are all joined through our identity, with the cultures which are part of the mainstream of life"
- Simon Kapwepwe, Zambian Independence Freedom Fighter

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - Winston Churchill

"Try to be the rainbow in someone else's cloud" - Maya Angelou

"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" - Steve Jobs

World Cup Update: Brazil (Africa In South America ;})

I am very confused, Ronaldinho is not part of the Brazil squad!!! When I caught wind of this I almost had a heart attack! This is why I shouldn't follow sport, it gets me all riled up. I had a feeling that Roberto Carlos was too long in the tooth for the team and even though I have always had a soft spot for him, I can deal with that decision but Ronaldinho?!

However, Brazil seems to have a great team and showed this playing against Zimbabwe and winning 3-0.  The stadium was absolutely packed.  All that talk about Africans not being very supportive and the worry about not being able to fill up stadiums is rubbish. You can watch the highlights below:

They are now in South Africa and have been given a hero's welcome.

Here is an intriguing short film from the official sports drink provider Powerade, which is not surprising seeing as they are a Coca-Cola company.  It is an interesting concept with clips about the characters embedded that you can click on and view while watching the main video.
