In my heart, I've never left Brazil.
Alex Scales (Oregon) had a sensational game [in the game 4 exhibition versus Brazil], ... one night it might be Charlie Bell (Michigan State), the next night it might be Scales [or] somebody else. If we can find that guy and get him hot, then we have a chance to be good. I also thought our big guys played really good, they battled, it was a very physical game.

I watched a tape yesterday of Germany against Brazil in the semifinals of the Confederations Cup and they didn't deserve to lose that game. Then there's the Germany we saw tonight. Which Germany is it? I still think it's a strong team.

The books, representing writers from Egypt, Brazil, Europe, Canada and the United States, will explore what it means to belong, a theme that transcends many cultures and experiences.
I believe that Brazil will meet its target for the primary budget surplus in 2006. However, it's normal that in an electoral year the government will lift its expenses, reducing the surplus in the second half.
Brazil wants to become a permanent member of the UN Security Council. That means we have to participate in peacekeeping operations, including in Africa. We thus have to know and get along with the countries of Africa better, especially in the area of defense.

One group includes the billions of consumers in growing markets like China, India, Russia and Brazil, who want access to the convenience of the mobile phone. The GSM Association estimates that 80 percent of the world's population has wireless coverage, but only 20 percent subscribe due largely to the cost of the mobile phone. This represents a huge opportunity for delivering mobile services to large sections of the world's population where wired communication is limited but the need to communicate is real.
