Above, the Brazilian Ambassador to the United States of America addresses an audience gathered to talk about investment opportunities in Brazil on Jun 5, 2012. He is surrounded by well-wishers from the City of Philadelphia, second from the left is the Hon Stanley Straughter, click here; third from the left is my favorite Philadelphia Councilwoman, Hon Mrs Jannie Blackwell.

Exhausted, but cheerful and getting ready to head off to the center of South Philly for the annual Odunde festival. We have been gearing up for this all week: we are celebrating Brazil, which has the world's second largest population of Black Africans. So I was told. Gosh!

We piled into a large auditorium at Wharton on Tuesday to hear from the Ambassador from Brazil and the man in charge of the 2014 FIFA World Cup preparations. He spoke in Portuguese and was translated, all around me Brazilians were shaking their heads and saying that the translations were wrong! But I got the idea: Brazil is on the move from the desperately poor and badly governed country it was.

I am trying to figure out what happened; I remember when I was an assistant professor of Physiology at the University of Pennsylvania we had a Brazilian post-doc who was supposed to me a medical graduate who did not know how to make a solution of sodium hydroxide. This is so basic it got him fired. I was later told that his uncle has a senior academic position and he was pushed through medical school without achieving competency. This story has haunted me ever since. And the same thing happened with a Brazilian who had succeeded in getting a place in a residency program.

I certainly know Brazilians who have passed exams on merit, and who are extremely competent professionals. Brazil is a huge country, one-third of South America, with a population zooming towards 200 million. And has a lot of medical schools, a lot of well-trained physicians. However, the fact that any could get through medical school lacking basic competence really bothered me: this was deeply damaging to competent professionals.

In the 1990s, due partly I expect to the 24/7 7-day party that the FIFA 2014 speaker told us about, the high rate of HIV infection in Brazil was killing its future. The Brazilian Government broke the patents of HIV drugs, and Brazil has never looked back in its successful fight against HIV infection and treatment.

Brazil has clearly turned a corner, but I am hearing from other sources about prostitutes convincing rich Nigerians to fly them to Nigeria to marry them.

Ah! Endless stories about Brazil, but my favorite one is from the 2002 AIDS conference in Barcelona, which I attended as a medical writer for the drug manufacturer Pfizer. Brazil had just won the FIFA World Cup, and every Brazilian at the conference was dressed in a horrible yellow tee shirt that looks spectacular on a winning soccer player. They showed solidarity with their country in its fight against AIDS. HIV/AIDS news click here. HIV/AIDS resources click here.

Maybe that is my answer! Horrible yellow tee shirts. What can I say but congratulations Brazil! You are a winner!

Opinion: militant Identitarianism will be the war of wars
By Pedro Henrique Alves (Opinion) This week I involuntarily got involved in a political debate. With all my might, I tried to avoid it. Still, a young woman stirred my conservative vein by calling me a "fascist project" because I advocated that transsexuals should be banned from sports that do not match their biological sexualities.

World Cup 2014: Brazil! SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2014 v8n1 p0305

Brazil has not won the last 2 World Cups, not in 2010, not in 2006 after their 5th win in 2002. So they are ready, and with World Cup 2014 on their own turf, they are out to annihilate everyone.

I love statistics, and World Cup statistics show that when Brazil gets into the finals, they are more likely to win than other teams getting into the finals. Brazil has won more than any other country.

Brazil is a huge country, a plucky country, the only Portuguese-speaking country in the Americas, where more people speak Portuguese than in Portugal, or in all the Portuguese-speaking African countries combined. Get ready for the World Cup, learn some Portuguese on this page.

I was thinking about going to Brazil for the World Cup, but a price per ticket of around $1000 makes the idea absurd. Watching the World Cup live is for rich folks. The rest of us fall into a pub and scream along with the locals. Yeah!! Getting my screaming voice ready!
