The island is formed by a fork in a very flat section of the Araguaia River. Bananal Island is the largest fluvial island in the world, at 350 km (217 mi) long and 55 km (34 mi) wide.

In Tupi (Tupian languages), his name means "ferocious snake". * The physicist Richard Feynman demonstrated his abilities at mental calculation when, during a trip to Brazil, he was challenged to a calculating contest against an experienced abacist (abacus). The abacist happened to challenge Feynman to compute the cube root of 1729.03; since Feynman knew that 1729 was equal to 12 3 +1 (because one cubic foot equals 1728 cubic inches), he was able to compute by hand an accurate value for its cube root using interpolation techniques (specifically, binomial expansion). The abacist had to solve the problem by a more laborious algorithmic method, and lost the competition to Feynman. The anecdote is related by Feynman in his memoir, ''Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!''. '''sugarloaf''' was the traditional form in which refined sugar was produced and sold until the late 19th century when granulated and cube sugars were introduced. A tall cone with a rounded top was the end product of a process that saw the dark molasses-rich raw sugar, which had been imported from sugar cane growing regions such as the Caribbean and Brazil, refined into white sugar. 'The Useful Arts and Manufactures of Great Britain - Sugar", Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1846. . Due to its resemblance to a sugarloaf cone, the early Portuguese explorers who discovered Rio de Janeiro in 1502 named Sugarloaf Mountain (Sugarloaf Mountain (Brazil)), nowadays one of the city's major tourist attractions. * As the first part of APC's still existing exchange program, Mitra Ardron spends three months at WEB networks in Canada, helping them become the third partner in the APC. * Later in the year Jeremy Mortimer from GreenNet helped PeaceNet Sweden; Scott Weikart & Joanne Scott from IGC helped Nicarao in Nicaragua and Steve Frame helped Alternex (the communications branch of IBASE, the Portuguese (Portuguese language) acronym of the Brazilian Institute for Social and Economic Analysis) and Mike Jensen

Most recently, Sittig has directed and choreographed successful productions of'' Jerry's Girls'' and ''Red, Hot & Cole''. right (Image:Logo fapesp.png) '''Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo''' (Foundation for Research Support of the State of São Paulo, or FAPESP) is a public foundation (foundation (charity)) located in São Paulo (São Paulo (city)), Brazil, with the aim of providing grants, funds and programs to support research, education and innovation of private and public institutions and companies in the state of São Paulo. It was founded in 1962 and is maintained by endowments by the State government which are guaranteed as a fixed percentage of the State's tax income, besides the income generated by the financial fruition of its considerable assets. La Plata dolphins The La Plata (La Plata Dolphin) or Franciscana dolphin (''Pontoporia blainvillei'') is the most threatened small cetacean in the southwest Atlantic Ocean due to bycatch. They are only found in the coastal waters of Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay. This species has been divided into four ranges (FMU’s: Franciscana Management Units) for management and conservation purposes. These populations are genetically different. Mortality rates are 1.6% for FMU 4 and 3.3% for FMU 3 but it is unknown whether these estimates are accurate. Aerial surveys have proven inconclusive so far as to the population numbers of franciscanas. To rectify this situation, more surveys are needed as well as political commitment, awareness campaigns and bycatch mitigation techniques. Biography Nicknamed through-out his career as ''Nacka'' (after his older brother who played for Nacka FF), Lennart Skoglund was a star of two Swedish World Cup (Football World Cup) sides in the 1950s. First as a young inside-left in 1950 (Football World Cup 1950) and then as a mature left winger (winger (sport)) on home soil in 1958 (Football World Cup 1958). He started at a local club called IK Stjärnan in 1943 before moving on to his favoured club Hammarby (Hammarby IF) the following year. He played for Hammarby between 1944 and 1949. In 1950 he was controversially sold to rivals AIK (AIK Fotboll) due to the sad financial situation of the club. He soon made his first appearance for the national and made a great impact in the World Cup held in Brazil. He formed a great partnership with Carl-Erik Palmér as Sweden finished third, and he also earned a new nickname: "The swaying corn-cob", a reference to his blond hair and his running style.

In Brazil a group calling themselves the Revolutionary Army Forces of Brazil (RAFB) have threatened to seize control of the government there. In the opening cutscene, an informant that was caught by the RAFB escapes through the Amazon (Amazon Rainforest) jungle until the female leader of the RAFB murders him with a machete. The leader name is Quixata Christo, the daughter of a prostitute and a wealthy industrialist who have a strong resentment of men. In the first mission outside the slums of Rio de Janeiro, the four-man SEAL team is sent to recover information from an informant. When the SEALs arrive at the target building, the informant is not there, but is being tortured by RAFB members on the opposite building. The team recovered him and he disclosed information about a meeting between the cell leader and Christo. They eventually capture the cell leader who reveal the whereabouts of the RAFB training camp. The SEALs traveled deep into the Amazonian rainforest and destroyed an underground cocaine factory, which was being used by the RAFB to fund their operations. With their funds cut, Christo and the RAFB made a last desperate attempt to destablize the government by seizing the Grand Panama Dam. The RAFB threatened that if their demands are not met, they will blow up the dam, which will cripple Brazil's economy. The SEAL team is sent in to retake the dam and defuse any explosive devices on site. The SEALs are successful and the RAFB is no longer a threat.

'''Brazil'''

Bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east, Brazil has a coastline (Coastline of Brazil) of This unique environmental heritage makes Brazil one of 17 megadiverse countries, and is the subject of significant global interest and debate regarding deforestation and environmental protection.

Brazil was inhabited by numerous tribal nations (Indigenous Brazilian) prior to the landing of explorer Pedro Álvares Cabral in 1500, who claimed the area for Portugal. Brazil remained a Portuguese colony until 1808, when the capital of the empire (Portuguese Empire) was transferred from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro (Transfer of the Portuguese Court to Brazil) after French forces invaded Portugal. In 1815, it was elevated to the rank of kingdom upon the formation of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil and the Algarves. Its independence (Brazilian Independence) was achieved in 1822 with the creation of the Empire of Brazil, a unitary state governed under a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary system. The country became a presidential republic in 1889, when a military ''coup d'état'' proclaimed the Republic (Proclamation of the Republic (Brazil)), although the bicameral legislature, now called Congress (National Congress of Brazil), dates back to the ratification of the first constitution in 1824. An authoritarian military junta (Brazilian military dictatorship) had led the nation from 1964 (1964 Brazilian coup d'état) until 1985. Brazil's current Constitution (Constitution of Brazil), formulated in 1988, defines it as a federal republic. The Federation is composed of the union of the Federal District (Federal District (Brazil)), the 26 states (States of Brazil), and the 5,570 municipalities (Municipalities of Brazil).

The country's economy (Economy of Brazil) is the world's seventh largest by both nominal GDP (List of countries by GDP (nominal)) and purchasing power parity (List of countries by GDP (PPP)), as of 2012. "World Development Indicators database" (PDF file), World Bank, 7 October 2009. Brazil has been the world's largest producer of coffee (Coffee production in Brazil) for the last 150 years.
