The two languages are not an even comparison by any stretch of the imagination.

Im just saying before you critize our educational skills know a little about us!! How it was said, we have no obligations to speak in english, we just do it cause we need to participate here, but is some kind of rude for you or anyone say that we are writing wrong.

você acha educado eu vir aqui no fórum e começar a falar em portuguÊs e te chamar de burro por não me entender? Saber falar em qualquer língua não é obrigação do homem médio, agora saber a capital do Brasil é o mínimo que se espera de uma pessoa normal.

Try google translator, smart one!!

I did a reading with tarot cards, and the results were...

Fourth finalist:
CHICAGO with the "ace of swords" (-) the inminet defeat
and "the chariot" (+) the candidate great

Third finalist:
MADRID with the "eight of wands" (-) the good fight
and "temperance" (+) the balance, not loses and not wins, possible second

Second finalist and possible winner
TOKYO with the "ace of pentacles" (+) the success, many possibilities
and "the tower" (+) do not is the moment, is the best but "this not is her time"

The winner and possible second finalist
RIO with the "ace of cups" (+) pace and love, the candidate worthy
and "death"(+) the inminet change, the end for new start. of all the cards revealed this is the more powerful.

Thanks.

Just curious, but is Tokyo spelled 'Tokio' in Spanish?

I thing that if the Chicago does not get 2016, the USOC will go ahead with there own Olympics network and undermine the IOC, just to spite them and garner more olympics sponsorship revenue.

What are you talking about? The IOC wouldn't allow the USOC to set up their own network should Chicago not win, especially if they don't get a cut of revenue.

The USOC has been a longtime annoyance to the IOC. The USOC didn't help matters when it announced plans for its own television network, putting it in competition with NBC starting after 2012. NBC just happens to provide the IOC with its largest chunk of revenue through a $2.2 billion deal to broadcast the 2010 and 2012 Olympics.

Corret. People don't vote best bid, but vote for political reason.

That's not quite true. It's a mixture. Some will vote for the best bid, some will vote for the safest, some will vote on political lines. That's what makes any predictions so difficult.

The Arab world support Chicago
http://www.alarabiya.net/views/2009/09/27/86270.html


Arab World has opportunity to confront bigotry in America

This week, the Arab World will be participating in a vote that on its face may seem insignificant to the many problems that plague the Middle East but could begin a process of changing the United States.

The vote will take place Friday in Copenhagen where the International Olympic Committee (IOC) will decide which of four cities between Madrid, Tokyo, Rio and Chicago will win the right to host the Olympics in 2016.

Compared to the votes in the United Nations where the pro-Israel bloc continues to block peace, hold back the advances of the Arab World and continues to denigrate the rights of Islamic countries, the IOC vote Friday may seem insignificant.

In fact, though, the vote could begin a process not of changing the United Nations, but rather creating an opportunity to enact change in the United States, the one nation that holds the key to the future of the Middle East.

The IOC consists of 111 members, 12 of whom representative the Arab World from Kuwait, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, UAE, Egypt, Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. Each country has one member on the IOC except Egypt and Morocco, which have participated the longest and most successful in past Olympic competitions, each have two members.

Those 12 Arab delegates can be the deciding factor in awarding the Olympics to Chicago.

Why is Chicago important? Unlike other nation’s competing for the Olympics, Chicago’s presentation is made by the city, not the country. Chicago officials beginning with its Mayor Richard M. Daley, have been lobbying to get President Barack Obama to make an appearance in Copenhagen to help swing the vote in Chicago’s favor.

As an American, I want the IOC to grant the 2016 Olympics to Chicago. But, as An American of Arab heritage, I also want the United States and Chicago to recognize their failure in respecting not only the principles of justice and fairness in the Middle East, but to end the practice and reality of the city’s discrimination against it’s citizens who are of Arab heritage.

In voting this week, the 12-member Arab delegation should use its power to condition their decision on how the winning city will respect its expatriate citizens.

That is a difficult thing to ask since none of the countries of the Arab World have ever recognized the real potential and the value that Americans of Arab heritage represent. The Arab World has always acted in a vacuum on Middle East issues believing that the decision-making process in American begins at the top levels of government.

The truth is, American power begins at the grassroots level. The “trenches” where American Arabs have been waging a long and difficult fight against discrimination for most of their existence in this nation.

I think Arab World will vote for Rio, in its majority.

I hope.
