    BRAZIL are hoping for success at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The South American side are in Group G with Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon - and are looking to lift the trophy for the first time since 2002. 1 Thiago Silva sings his heart out for the Brazil national anthem at the 2022 World CupCredit: Rex Why is the Brazilian national anthem shortened? The melody for the national anthem was composed by Francisco Manuel da Silva and was presented to the public in 1831. The date it was presented was April 13, 1831 and it is now knownn as "Day of the Brazilian National Anthem" in the country. It had been given at least two unofficial lyrics before the official ones were  written by  Joaquim Osório Duque-Estrada in 1909.

    ARGENTINA are in the World Cup again - and are, of course, one of the favourites. And their anthem is one of the most iconic at football's biggest tournament and Lionel Messi is hoping to finally win the big one to round off his stellar career. 3 Argentina singing the national anthem prior to their match against Saudi ArabiaCredit: Getty Why is the Argentina national anthem shortened? The first Argentinian anthem was composed as early as 1810, before it was adopted as the official song three years later following the Revolution. Its lyrics were written by the Buenos Aires-born Vicente Lopez y Planes, whilst the music was composed by a Spaniard, Blas Parera. There is a long, anti-Spain section in the middle of the piece which has been omitted since 1924 - and the whole piece is extremely long. As a result, in the Olympics, rugby games and at the World Cup, only the instrumental introduction (which lasts 1 minute 6 seconds) is played. 3 The Argentinian Pumas use the same short version as the footballersCredit: Times Newspapers Ltd What is...

    GOOD Friday is a Christian holiday which marks the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Christians believe the Son of God was resurrected three days later - which is now widely referred to as Easter Sunday. But what is the meaning of Good Friday and where did the name come from? 2Good Friday is a Christian holiday which marks the crucifixion of Jesus ChristCredit: EPA Why is Good Friday called Good Friday? Good Friday does not refer to a happy time, as it is the day that Jesus was crucified by the Romans - with Easter Sunday bringing his resurrection or rebirth. Instead, "Good" comes from the former meaning of the word - "Holy" or "pious". Another reference around the name relates to the Bible which has been called "the good book". But the Oxford English Dictionary's Fiona MacPherson said that the term "good" used here "designates a day on (or sometimes a season in) which religious observance is held". The OED states that "good" in this context refers to "a day or season observed as holy by the church", this explains we...

    AUSTRALIA Day is considered one of the biggest days of celebration Down Under. But the public holiday isn't without it's controversies. What is Australia Day? Australia Day began as a time to come together to celebrate what it means to be a proud Aussie. But in recent years, acknowledging January 26 as a public holiday has become unpopular amid changing views on what it really represents. Although the day is an important date in Australia's history, varied opinions about whether it should be held in high regard. That's because Australia Day was originally held to mark the anniversary of the arrival of the First Fleet of 11 convict ships, sent from Britain - colonisation. On this day, in 1788, commander Captain Arthur Phillip raised the Union Jack in Sydney Cove - to signal their arrival. The date has long been a difficult symbol for many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who see it as a day of sorrow and mourning. For many it's a painful reminder of death, introduced diseases and an almost eradicated culture. For First Nations People...

    ALS is a rare neurological condition that was named after baseball legend Lou Gehrig. The Iron Horse died in 1941, two years after he was diagnosed with the condition. Lou Gehrig died in 1941, two years after he was diagnosed with ALS What is ALS? Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)  is an incurable fatal neuromuscular disease that affects voluntary muscles in the body. Progressive muscle weakness leads to paralysis and eventually death. The disease attacks nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord and motor neurons, which control the movement of voluntary muscles, deteriorate and cause stiffness, twitching, weakness and eventually leads to difficulties speaking, swallowing and breathing. Eventually, the condition causes paralysis and patients usually die from respiratory failure. The disorder became well-known after baseball player Lou Gehrig was diagnosed with it in June 1939. It was followed by the 1963 diagnosis of Stephen Hawking. It became ever more known when in 2014 an online challenge went viral. The ‘ice bucket challenge’, also known as the ‘ALS ice bucket challenge’, saw participants tip buckets of freezing water full of ice...
    Mrs. Viola Fletcher, 107, survivor of the Tulsa Race Massacre, testifies before Congress. I was blessed to have a very good education when it comes to the Black history that has been part of American history since before the founding of what is now the United States. No thanks to my schools, of course; I give credit to my parents. My parents hated the use of the term “race riot,” which was often used to obfuscate the murder and massacre of Black people in this nation. My dad especially hated the term, since he was actually charged with “inciting a riot” during World War II when, as a Tuskegee Airman in uniform, he was attacked and beaten nearly to death by a crowd of white racists.  It was with that framing in mind that I wrote about the 1921 attack on Tulsa’s Black Wall Street four years ago, noting that it was not a "race riot," it was a massacre. That was not my first telling of the tale, nor will it be my last. One of the first stories I wrote here at Daily Kos in 2008 was...

Madoff, who was 82, died of natural causes. 3Bernie MadoffCredit: AP What is a Ponzi scheme? A Ponzi scheme "is an investment fraud that pays existing investors with funds collected from new investors," according to Investor.gov. The "schemers" usually promise to "generate high returns with little or no risk." "But in many Ponzi schemes, the fraudsters do not invest the money. Instead, they use it to pay those who invested earlier and may keep some for themselves." However, Ponzi schemes require a consistent influx of money to survive. 3Madoff died while serving a 150-year prison termCredit: AP There are multiple "red flags" that investors should look out, according to Investor.gov, including "high returns" that have no risk and "consistent" returns.

    Here’s a fun statistic: Over half of U.S. kids under age 16 played Roblox in 2020, yet many people still don’t know what Roblox is. But now, the world has been set aflame with Roblox fever. Major outlets like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and CNN are all suddenly writing about this thing called Roblox. Google searches for Roblox stock have skyrocketed in March, and even celebrities like Reese Witherspoon are making jokes about it. But maybe you don’t know why Roblox has gained mainstream hype in 2021. Well, I’m here to explain everything. What is Roblox? Roblox is an online platform and storefront where users go to play games.

    It's been a perennial American obsession for more than 50 years. It's provided a shadowy backdrop for shows like "The X-Files" and movies like the 1996 summer blockbuster "Independence Day." And in 2019, this well-known but little-understood location took over social media when one jokester inspired millions of people to RSVP "yes" to trespassing. The place: Area 51, a remote patch of desert some 83 miles north-northwest of Las Vegas, next to a salt flat at the foot of a mountain. This military outpost — and what's happened inside it — is so top-secret that its very existence was disputed until 2013. In short, Area 51 was created during the Cold War to help America peek in on the Soviet Union. But, because of its clandestine beginnings and cutting-edge tech, many Americans came to associate the base with extraterrestrial ships and little green men.  Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox So, what is Area 51 really? What do we know for sure? How did a Cold War espionage operation become associated with theories of deep-state cover-ups of crash-landed aliens?...

    She was the protagonist of hundreds of videos and comments that circulated after the explosion in the port of Beirut: a huge mushroom cloud. Its effects were visible this Wednesday: collapsed buildings and houses, glass, dust and ruins everywhere. More than 130 people died, more than 4,000 were injured and nearly 300,000 were left homeless after the explosion, according to initial reports, attributed to deposits of more than 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate stored for six years in the port. But a day later, the images of the peculiar cloud that was generated after the explosion continue to raise questions, since its mushroom shape has been associated for years with nuclear detonations. However, this type of phenomenon, generally known as the “condensation cloud” or “Wilson cloud” is more common than it seems and is not always associated with atomic weapons. What is the Wilson Cloud? As explained by the South Brazilian Meteorological Service (Metsul), when large explosions occur in sufficiently humid air, the shock wave causes a rarefaction (reduction in density) of the air around the explosion. According to Metsul,...

    Law enforcement officials in Flint, Michigan, are looking to talk to two men after an attack was caught on camera earlier this week at a Macy’s store in which a man attacks a Macy’s employee, claiming that the employee called him the “n-word.” The video, which is violent and contains graphic language, does not show that the employee used any racial slurs but does appear to show the other man repeatedly striking him while he was on the floor. “Damire Palmer, 18, of Mount Morris and Damarquay Palmer, 22, of Flint Township have been identified by police as the two suspects involved,” WNEM TV5 reported. “Police say they learned that an employee of the store was assaulted by a male who fled the scene with a second individual after the assault.
