    This was certainly a sale that shoppers were not expecting to catch at a supermarket in the northeastern Brazilian state of Piauí. A manager and one of his workers were shocked at the sight of a bevy of quails hatching out of a carton of eggs last month, viral video footage shows. Supermarket manager Fábio Gomes told news portal G1 that Manoel Pereira alerted him about a strange sound that was emanating from the shelf area and spotted something moving inside the plastic carton that was packed with 30 eggs on September 21.

    A disgraced Navy nuclear engineer and his wife face a combined 20 years in prison for to trying to sell secrets about American nuclear-powered warships to Brazil. Jonathan Toebbe, 43, and his Trump-hating wife, Diana, were arrested last October after prosecutors said he approached a foreign government in an attempt to provide the nation with thousands of pages of stolen classified documents about the nuclear reactors that power the U.S. submarine fleet. The identity of the foreign power had been concealed by federal prosecutors, although it is widely speculated to have been France after investigators revealed the Toebbes had contacted a friendly foreign power, rather than an adversary. However, a senior Brazilian official and others familiar with the investigation confirmed have since confirmed Toebbe approached a Brazilian leader, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. Analysts allege Toebbe's outreach was an 'odd choice' given then-President Donald Trump and Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro had strengthened the alliance between the countries. Some argue at that time U.S.-Brazilian relations were the closest they'd been in decades. Confirmation that Toebbe contacted Brazil comes one month after he pleaded guilty in...
    A human hand and three placentas are believed to have been sent from Brazil to Singapore so a fashion designer could reportedly turn them into clothes and accessories.

    A litter of fossilized dinosaur eggs have been found in Brazil that would have hatched into vicious carnivores 60 million to 80 million years ago if the eggs were not buried by loose sediment. The five eggs, which are well-preserver, were originally believed to be ancient crocodile eggs - fossilized feces belonging to crocodylomorph was previously uncovered at the site. After a deeper analysis by a team of paleontologist led by William Roberto Nava, the eggs were determined to be larger and have a thicker shell than those from a crocodylomorph, according to g1. Nava, who is responsible for most of the finds, at the Paleontological Museum in Marilia, told g1 that the dinosaur eggs measure four to five inches long and two to three inches wide, while the ancient crocodiles' egg is typically no longer than three inches.

    By Robert Moran PHILADELPHIA — As humans across the planet are being immunized against COVID-19, a little-known and very different vaccination campaign is underway in the lowland Atlantic Forest of Brazil. About 60 miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro is the home of the golden lion tamarin, a squirrel-size monkey with a billowy orange mane that was once on the verge of extinction in the wild. In the early 1970s, it was estimated that only several hundred were still alive in their native habitat. But a decades-long global effort turned the dire situation for the tiny primate into a success story. And the Philadelphia Zoo has played an important role through funding and breeding. By 2014, the years of work on behalf of golden lion tamarins appeared to have paid off with a then-estimated 3,700 reported in the wild. But then the monkeys were devastated by an outbreak of yellow fever. Nearly a third of the still fragile population is believed to have died. In a race against the viral disease, researchers in Brazil came up with a vaccine. So...

Brazil attacked very well. Speaking of goals, maybe they were a bit avoidable, but they are things that can happen in football. We have known how to lift and tie the game and then the bad luck that they made us 2-1 a little late& rdquor ;, he said in mixed zone. Elm confirmed that the key was in the forcefulness in the areas: “Probably yes. We have also had occasions and others that have not been due to possible hands and others, but that They are decisions of the referee that, although we do not like them, we have to accept.

    Glenn Greenwald has speculated that coronavirus lockdowns could have contributed to the armed robbery that saw him bound and held at gunpoint for an hour at his farm in Brazil last month.   The journalist, who was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize for their reporting about government surveillance programs based on leaks by Edward Snowden, recounted the terrifying home invasion near Rio de Janeiro in an essay on Monday.  He then appeared on Tucker Carlson's Fox News show on Tuesday night, where he shared his theory that the robbery may have been the result of 'desperation' driven by months of isolation during coronavirus.  'What is the effect of lockdowns, and quarantines, and isolation, and social distancing?' Greenwald asked. 'Not to make excuses for people to do this, but it drives people to this level of desperation.'  Glenn Greenwald appeared on Fox News on Tuesday night and speculated that coronavirus lockdowns could have contributed to the armed robbery that saw him bound and held at gunpoint for an hour at his farm in Brazil last month He continued:...
    Bloomberg Confined Brazil is hypnotized with ‘Big Brother’: M. Margolis (Bloomberg) – After a year fighting the deterioration that covid-19 brings, and recently with the variants loose, Brazilians continue to face episodes of absolute confinement. So what is the favorite pastime of this nation of 211 million people locked up at home? See others in the same situation. TVs, computer monitors, smartphones, all are fixed on Big Brother Brasil, the local franchise of the reality show that is known internationally, but whose fan base and enthusiasm is perhaps no greater than the Brazilian. Two decades later, the local edition, featuring a group of strangers vying for money and glory under one roof, remains something of a cultural contagion, with tens of millions of viewers willingly grieving. Sometimes not much happens on the Big Brother set, and what happens is more trivial than dramatic. However, try to explain that to Brazilians, who cling to every outburst, sedition, snuggle, and infatuation, and then repeat what happens on TV, but now on social media until the early hours. And for Brazil’s consumer companies,...

    BRASILIA (Reuters) - A popular priest is being investigated by prosecutors over accusations he diverted donations at Brazil's third largest pilgrimage site into real estate investments, including a ranch and a luxury beach house, authorities said. The Roman Catholic Church suspended Father Robson Oliveira on Sunday, pending the investigation by prosecutors looking into money laundering, fraud, tax evasion and organized crime charges involving up to 1.7 billion reais ($300 million) over a decade. Oliveira has around 3.9 million followers on Facebook and had been running the Basilica of the Eternal Father in Trindade, a colonial town just outside the city of Goiania in the central state of Goias. More than a million people flock to the shrine each year and take part in celebrations that feature a procession of ox carts. Prosecutors said they suspect Oliveira, aged 46, was skimming off part of the 20 million reais ($3.6 million) in donations the basilica receives on average each month and investing the proceeds through front-men associates. They said they had contacted Vatican officials about the case. Police raided properties linked to...
    Yanomami indigenous people receiving medical attention.Andressa Anholete/Getty For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.This piece was originally published in Canada’s National Observer and appears here as part of our Climate Desk Partnership. Take a country where Indigenous leaders are killed for defending their lives and lands, where constitutionally protected rights are often violated for the sake of development and mining, and where people are left in precarious conditions due to unrecognized territories and a far-right president who publicly supports the expansion of mining and agribusiness at whatever cost. Then add a global pandemic, and the results are damaging. This is Brazil today. The country ranks second in the world for COVID-19 cases and deaths, just behind the United States. But it’s Brazil’s Indigenous communities that have been hit especially hard, inviting reluctant attention to the grave risks a global virus can have on communities already fighting for their rights, lives and lands. It’s not just the number of people who have died from COVID-19 that has sparked concern across the country, it’s Brazil’s political...
    BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — Two members of the Yanomami ethnic group in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest were shot to death by illegal gold prospectors inside the Indigenous community’s territory, according to reports from the group. Júnior Hekurari Yanomami, a member of the group who is president of Condisi-Y, the local health council, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Original Yanomami, 24, and Marcos Yanomami, 20, were slain June 12. The deaths were only reported recently due to the remoteness of the region in Brazil’s Roraima state and communication difficulties. The Hutukara association, which represents Yanomami communities in Brazil, issued a statement confirming the reports of the killings. Brazil’s national Indian foundation, known as Funai, and the Federal Police didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. Relying on a conversation with a leader of the far-flung community, Hekurari said Original was shot first as a group of Yanomami followed prospectors who were trespassing on the community’s land. Then Marcos was shot and the other Indigenous people retreated after an hour-long pursuit, Hekurari said. Their bodies were left in the...
    New York — With Flamengo vs. Bangu returned soccer to Brazil. Photo:Buda Mendes / . This Thursday, the Carioca Championship Brazil returned to activity, making it the first soccer league in South America to return after the break due to the coronavirus. However, the emotion was short-lived, as this Saturday, two days after its restart, the mayor of Rio de Janeiro suspended the tournament to adapt the sanitary protocols.

    The Brazilian government has stopped publishing its running coronavirus cases and deaths in what critics allege is an attempt to hide the true extent of the pandemic within the country, The Associated Press reported. The move came after months of criticism from experts who have said Brazil's statistics were too conservative and, in some cases, manipulated. As of Sunday, Brazil had nearly 673,000 cases of the novel coronavirus with some 35,930 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University, which has tallied the numbers. Its official figures put the country just behind the U.S. in terms of the number of cases, and third in terms of virus-related deaths. Brazil, with about 210 million people, is the globe's seventh-most-populous nation.
