Sao Paolo & Latin America
São Paulo (Saint Paul;), popularly known as Sampa, is the largest city in Brazil, the largest city in the southern hemisphere and Americas, and the world's seventh largest city by population. Latin America (or Latinoamérica; ) is a region of the Americas where Romance languages (i.e., those derived from Latin) – particularly Spanish and Portuguese, and variably French – are primarily spoken./5

Dear Farid Uddin, Thursday, July 11th, is World Population Day. The United Nations estimates that global population will swell to 9 billion by the year 2050. Most of this growth will occur in urban areas and emerging economies in Asia, Latin America, and sub-Saharan Africa. Cities such as Delhi, India; Sao Paolo, Brazil; and Lagos, Nigeria will become the largest in the world, while rural areas will lose inhabitants. At least one billion people around the world do not get enough to eat. A nearly equal amount – 1.4 billion – are overweight, and can suffer from various health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. And more than 200 million women across the globe have an unmet need for contraception, keeping them from planning how many children they want to have and when. In addition, women farmers often lack access to land, credit, and education making it harder for them to provide for their families. The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that if women had the ...

MANILA, Philippines - Direct flights between Philippines and Brazil may start soon after the air negotiating panels of both countries inked an air agreement. Up to 7 flights a week can be mounted by airlines designated by each government between any point outside of Manila and any point in Brazil, including Sao Paolo, according to the text message of Civil Aeronautics Board (CAB) executive director Carmelo Arcilla to reporters on Wednesday, May 22. This is the first air pact between the Philippines and Brazil, South America's largest country. There are currently no direct flights between the two countries. Opening the route is part of efforts to make the Philippines a hub for flights between Latin America and Asia. The air talks were initiated at the request of legacy carrier Philippine Airlines (PAL), now under the management of conglomerate San Miguel Corp, which has plans to expand PAL's network of long-haul flights. The new air accord also provides 5th freedom rights, which allow Philippine carriers t ...
With Pope Benedict's stunning announcement that he will resign later this month, observers have said the time may be coming for the Roman Catholic Church to elect its first non-European leader. After John Paul, who was from Poland, and German-born Benedict, the post once reserved for Italians is now open to all. Who gets the nod depends on the profile of the new pope that the cardinals who elect him at the next conclave think will guide the Church best. Latin America represents 42 percent of the world's 1.2bn-strong Catholic population, the largest single block in the Church, compared to 25 percent in its European heartland. If the next conclave is Latin America's turn, the leading candidates there seem to be Odilo Scherer, archbishop of the huge diocese of Sao Paolo, or the Italian-Argentine Leonardo Sandri, now heading the Vatican department for Eastern Churches. Peter Turkson from Ghana, now head of the Vatican's justice and peace department, is often tipped as Africa's frontrunner. About half the card ...
The oddsmakers weigh in on who will be the new pope. My friend Alan says South Korea has a shot. Odilo Pedro Scherer (Brazilia, 63) ranks as Latin America's strongest candidate. Archbishop of Sao Paolo, largest diocese in the largest Catholic country, he is conservative in his country but would rank as a moderate elsewhere. The rapid growth of Protestant churches in Brazil could count against him. 4 to 1 - Angelo Scola (Italy, 71) is archbishop of Milan, a springboard to the papacy, and is many Italians' bet to win. An expert on bioethics, he also knows Islam as head of a foundation to promote Muslim-Christian understanding. His dense oratory could put off cardinals seeking a charismatic communicator. 5 to 1 - Joao Braz de Aviz (Brazil, 65) brought fresh air to the Vatican department for religious congregations when he took over in 2011. He supports the preference for the poor in Latin America's liberation theology, but not the excesses of its advocates. Possible drawbacks include his low profile. 5 to 1 ...
Skype founder browsing the world for next hot tech idea Niklas Zennstrom, co-founder of internet phone service Skype, believes the next hot tech business will just as likely spring from Istanbul or Sao Paolo as from Silicon Valley or the coolest districts of London. And he is prepared to fly around the world to find it. "Talent can pop up anywhere in the world, it's not just one city block," the Swedish entrepreneur and venture capitalist said at the headquarters of his Atomico fund, based on upmarket New Bond Street in central London. Zennstrom, who retains faint traces of a Swedish accent despite his years of globetrotting, is looking for start-ups ready to shift up a gear into new markets and has the experience, gained from growing Skype into a service used by millions around the world, to help them. Skype was sold to eBay in 2005 for roughly $3 billion, before being bought back by a consortium including Zennstrom in 2009 and then two years later sold on to Microsoft for $8.5 billion, leaving him a mul ...
