  1. Arrgh is discusting when some americans politicians believe that they know more about a subject in another country than even the natives...There is no simple definition for terrorism, the american definition for terrorism is not the brazilian one, and despite (some) americans believes, this doesnt mean that the brazilian definition is wrong. Each country definition of terrorism depends on what they are trying to delegitimize or demoralize. Lula or Dilma were terrorist? Well, untill today Fernando Gabeira, a famous politician of the green party in Brazil, is prohibit to enter in the US because he is a "terrorist" for the white house. If Brasil really dont consider Hamas a terrorist group, i agree to this policy, Hamas is a political party, i didnt agree with Hamas actions in the past but this actions were no different than "oficial" actions made by americans, or Israel, or Russia, or even Brasil in some ocasions inside and outisde of theirs territories.

US$ 700 million (approximately R$ 1.1 billion) have been collected in only four trade agreements. - We are experiencing economic vitality in terms of opportunity and growth. Another key point is that games are the first in South America, the first in Brazil, and we can offer sponsors the opportunity to associate with the first - said the commercial director of Rio 2016, Maggie Sanchez, told the English periodical. Chief executive of a consulting business, Tim Crow attributes the success of the event in Brazil to the ability of the local committee in the event the contract value and strength of the BRIC group of the country, as well as Russia, India and China. - The Games have become, over the years, a good deal. There is much exchange of information between the committees and sponsors with knowledge of the IOC. If you go to one of the BRIC economies, you get this kind of numbers. When the event return to the smaller economies, we see these numbers go back to what we might call "normal."
