    hug-a-suothafrican courtesy zumodrive.comRustenburg, Polokwane, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Pretoria: six stadiums for the four teams of World cup group C. The most prestigious is England, 13 times in the Cup before, but only one time (1966) able to get it. The lions also got the fourt place in 1990. Algeria, who won the continental title in 1990, took part at the WC oly two times in the 80’s; this time they qualified after a dramatic play off against Egypt. Usa will be in for the sixth time since 1990: they got the third place in 1930, and in the past won the Concacaf title four times. For Slovenia, who took part only once in the past (2002), it is a great thing to get qualified this time, after beating bigger countries’ teams like Russia and Poland.

  • In 2009, world Financial markets recorded the jump of raw materials value. Gum jumped by 148 per cent, lead by 139, copper by 127. The global increase let some countries (Russia, Saudi arabia, Brazil) make more money than other, like some africans, where food prizes got higher and people are getting poorer because of this.

    These countries are waiting to receive from richer nations the help they promised: the drop-the-debt campaign has been carried out only for a half, especially thanks to Canda, Japan, Usa. In last year summer, G8 summit in L’Aquila, Italy promised other funds, but at the end of the year Usa still have not given their promised sum. Italy, for its part, is far from the target of devolving 0,51 per cent of its product.
