Brazil In Brazil, Discovery Day is observed on April 22 each year. This date commemorates the day when Pedro Álvares Cabral became the first European to land in Brazil in 1500 (although this discovery is contested (Alternative theory of the European discovery of Brazil) by some). '''''Chronologica''''' is a double album by Gang Gajang, released only in Brazil in 2000 on Tronador Records (see 2000 in music). Enel has power plants in Europe (Bulgaria, France, Greece, Italy, Romania, Russia, Slovakia and Spain), in North America (Canada and the United States) and in Latin America (Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico and Panama). With Endesa, Enel’s presence is extended to Argentina, Colombia, Morocco, Peru and Portugal. Latin America In Latin America, Enel owns 668 MW of wind and hydroelectric plants. Through Endesa, the Enel Group is among the leading players in Latin America around 16 GW installed capacity from thermoelectric, large hydro and renewables, of which 4.4 GW in Argentina, 1 GW in Brazil, 5.6 GW in Chile, 2.9 GW in Colombia and 1.8 GW in Peru. Background The Argentine province Banda Oriental was incorporated as a Brazilian Province in 1822 when Brazil became independent from Portugal. The centralized government under Brazilian emperor Pedro I (Pedro I of Brazil) led to many revolts inside Brazil. Seeing a chance to break the rule of a foreign nation over their country, some Orientals raised the flag of rebellion against the Brazilian government in 1825. Aftermath The war went on for one year more with inconclusive frays between small groups of men on each side. Nevertheless, it seems that only the disputed province gained something. In 1828, a treaty was signed between Brazil and Argentina which granted its independence as present-day Uruguay. thumb direita upright Brazilian hip hop was born in Sao Paulo (File:Avenida Paulista4.jpg). São Paulo's hip hop scene is largely influenced by social inequality and racial factors. Rappers like Racionais MC's focus on criticizing the city's unequal wealth distribution, the lack of opportunity given to children growing up in the slums, and São Paulo state's (São Paulo (state)) corrupt government, and avidly promote an anti drug-use agenda. Brazilian slums known as favelas are frequently referenced in songs, as more radical types of Brazilian funk (Funk carioca) and hip hop have been used as a forum to speak out against local, regional, and national issues. Groups such as Cambio Negro and Chico Science adhere to a musical style known as rap consciencia, or socially conscious rap.In the mid-1990s, Brazilian hip hop and funk were advertised to the public as being connected to the drug scene in Rio de Janeiro. Reports in the press around this time classified both styles of Brazilian music as being rooted and funded by the main drug lords in Rio. Part of the speculation of the connection expressed in the reports came from a famous rap that came onto the scene in the early 1990s, entitled "Rap do Borel." Borel, a slum in the neighborhood of Tijuca where drug lorders are notoriously known to operate, was recorded by Brazilian musicians William Santos de Souza and Duda. It has been speculated that subsidized funk parties organized by the Brazilian crime group " Comando Vermelho " (Red Commandoes) were actually parties in which Brazilian youth could be recruited for drug dealing. Behague,Gerard. "Rap, Reggae, Rock, or Samba: The Local and the Global in Brazilian Popular Music (1985–95)." Latin American Music Review 27, no. 1 (Spring Summer 2006): 79–90. Brazilian rap, at least as it has developed in poor neighborhoods here in the country's largest city, tends to be highly politicized and scornful of lyrics that boast about wealth or sexual conquests. In contrast, the funk movement in Brazil, also imported from the United States but centered in Rio de Janeiro, is unabashedly about celebrating sex, bling and violence. Since established commercial radio stations and publishing houses have shown minimal interest in the music and poetry that new hip-hop artists are producing, or want to impose contract terms that are too stringent, rappers have developed their own channels to distribute their work. These range from selling their discs and books themselves on the streets and at shows to having the works played on a network of low-power but linked community radio stations. Behague, Gerard.

Most of the Lieutenant Generals never set foot on New France, except Pierre Dugua, Sieur de Mons and Jean-François Roberval, and served the office from France. This office was succeeded by the Governor of New France. Airlifts became practical during World War II as aircraft became large and sophisticated enough to handle large cargo demands. The USAAF (United States Army Air Forces) began the largest and longest-sustained airlift of the war in May 1942, delivering more than half a million net tons of materiel from India to China over the Hump by November 1945. That operation by the Air Transport Command presaged the even larger Berlin airlift (Berlin Blockade), lasting from June 1948 to September 1949, an American (USA), British (United Kingdom) and French (France) operation intended to thwart the blockading of the city of Berlin by the Soviet Union. The largest civilian airlift ever was carried out by protestant and catholic churches working together under the banner "Joint Church Aid"(JCA) to carry food to Biafra, during the Biafran secession war from Nigeria in 1967-70. This joint effort (which those involved used to call "Jesus Christ Airlines" as an inside joke from the initials JCA) is estimated to have saved more then a million lives in Biafra. All airplanes departed from the (by then) Portuguese colony of St. Tome and Principe and used to fly by night, all lights off and avoiding Nigerian Migs to the bush landing strip of Uli, made by enlarging a common road, the only operational "airport" in Biafra. All the airplanes, crews and logistics were paid, set up and maintained by the joint churches. It was an admirable work, because even the International Red Cross Committee backed out after one of his few and very far apart relief flights was downed by a Nigerian Mig-17. Only the Joint Churches and their crews and aircraft (mostly aging multiprop airliners like DC-7's, Lockheed Constellation and Superconstellations, DC-6's, even some DC3) kept flying into Biafra night after night, saving, as said, hundreds of thousands if not over a million lives from starvation, at the cost of many crews lives.

Time in office Mario García Menocal was elected President in 1912 and became known for his strong support of business and corporations. He was reelected in 1916, though the election was challenged by the liberals. In perhaps his most notable action, García Menocal authorized Cuba's declaration of war against Germany on April 7, 1917, entering World War I a day after the United States. This was believed by many to be an attempt to get the United States to give more support to his government. Commons:Category:Germany Wikipedia:Germany Dmoz:Regional Europe Germany
