Extra! Colombia Beats Brazil 1-0

[rebelmouse-image 27089134 alt="""" original_size="750x1439" expand=1]

El Tiempo, June 18, 2015

"Victory and revenge," reads the front page of today's El Tiempo, after Colombia enjoyed a dramatic victory over Brazil at the Copa America Wednesday night. It was Brazil's first loss to Colombia since 1991, leaving the two teams tied at the top of Group C with three points, along with Venezuela, which will take on Peru Thursday.

Colombia defeated Brazil 1-0, following a strike at the 36-minute mark by Colombian central defender Jeison Murillo. Brazilian player Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior was given a red card after the final whistle over an altercation with Colombian Carlos Bacca, which is being hailed as the latest example of referees singling out the player.

ABOUT THE SOURCE: El Tiempo is the leading national Colombian daily with an average daily circulation of 1.14 million. It was founded in 1911.

TURIN — Guess who's not coming to dinner. It seems like a scene from the American Deep South during the decades of segregation. But this happened in Italy, in this summer of 2023.

Two Italians, in their sixties, got up from the restaurant table and left (without saying goodbye, as the owner points out), when they declared that they didn't want to eat in a restaurant where the chef was what they called: an 'n-word.'

Racists, poor things. And ignorant, in the sense of not knowing basic facts. They don't realize that we are all made of mixtures, come from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. And that food, of course, are blends of different ingredients and recipes.

The restaurant is called Ginger People&Food, and these visitors from out of town probably didn't understand that either.
