, in Tucson, Arizona. Universities in the Southeastern U.S., including those in the Atlantic Coast Conference, Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, Southwestern Athletic Conference, Southeastern Conference, Southern Conference, and Sun Belt Conference, have perhaps the most complex jumble of rivalries, many associated with annual football games, and often with colorful nicknames: * '''Alabama State University''' and '''Alabama A&M University''' — "The Magic City Classic", played annually in Birmingham (Birmingham, Alabama).

The group consists of two members- Rain and Taurus Caine. The members met in 1997 when the two (then both solo artists) were recording at Knight Crimes studio in Montgomery, Alabama. At the time, the only mission on their minds was recording anything so that people knew they existed. From that point, the two kindled a friendship that would eventually see Taurus Caine moving to the west coast and back to launch a "street worthy" solo career, Rain moving to Birmingham (Birmingham, Alabama), and launching a successful "ghost writing" career, and both artists ending up back in Montgomery, Alabama with the same manager. It was that manager, Brian Miller, who saw the uniqueness in the two and convinced the "Boyz" to form what has become one of the largest music accomplishments to the state of Alabama.

(Image:Birmingham District copy.jpg) In 1919, Manning’s talents took him to Birmingham, Alabama, where he worked on a new design for the city. He recommended a radical resource-based plan which included “multiple neighborhood-based centers determined by available resources” (Karson, 2001). He also makes note of the importance of parks throughout the city stating that “the cities that are best designed have about one-eight of their area in parks and about one acre to 75 people” (Manning, 1919). This approach was in direct contrast to the then popular City Beautiful movement which emphasized monumental civic centers and Beaux Arts architecture style public buildings (Karson, 2001). The architectural design of the Chicago Columbian Exposition was based in the City Beautiful movement, but now, on his own, Manning decided on a different course following his own landscape theories which were based on the natural available resources. This idea was the basis for his creation of the “wild garden” which he applied to many of his landscape designs.

Egypt later won the competition and went on to win the next edition In Ghana (2008) making the Egyptian and Ghanaian national teams the only teams to win the African Nations Cup Back to back which resulted in Egypt winning the title for a record number of six times in the history of African Continental Competition. This was followed by a third consecutive win in Angola 2010, making Egypt the only country with a record 3-consecutive and 7-total Continental Football Competition winner. This achievement had also placed the Egyptian football team as the #12 best team in the world's FIFA rankings. Cairo failed at the applicant stage when bidding for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games (2008 Summer Olympics), which was hosted in Beijing, China. However, Cairo did host the 2007 Pan Arab Games.

They have the two biggest football teams in Egypt. Most of the sports federations of the country are also located in the city suburbs, including the Egyptian Football Association. The headquarters of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) was previously located in Cairo, before relocating to its new headquarters in 6 October City (6th of October City), a small city away from Cairo's crowded districts.

Other major squash-playing venues are The Shooting Club (Nadi el Seid) in Dokki, The Maadi Club in Maadi and Wadi Degla in Degla. Culture Over the ages, and as far back as four thousand years, Egypt stood as the land where many civilizations have met. The Pharaohs together with the Greeks, Babylonians and the Romans (Roman Empire) have left their imprints here. Muslims from the Arabian Peninsula, led by Amr ibn al-A'as ('Amr ibn al-'As), introduced Islam into Egypt. Khedive Mohammad Ali (Muhammad Ali of Egypt), with his Albanian family roots, put Egypt on the road to modernity. The cultural mixture in this city is only natural, considering its heritage. Egypt can be likened to an open museum with monuments of the different historical periods on display everywhere. Cultural tourism in Egypt
