Breaking News From Brazil Created in April of 1989, BRAZZIL has been a national respected link between Brazil and all those — Brazilian or not — who feel a kinship with the Brazilian way of life, politics, economy, culture, and soul. Going beyond the report of facts, BRAZZIL brings the whys, the hows and thens.
Capoeira From the 16th to the 19th centuries, Portugal shipped slaves into South America from Western Africa. Brazil was the largest contributor to slave migration with 42% of all slaves shipped across the Atlantic. The following peoples were the most commonly sold into Brazil: The Sudanese group, composed largely of Yorubaa and Dahomean people, the Islamised Guinea-Sudanese group of Malesian and Hausa people and the Bantu group (among them Kongos, Kimbundas and Kasanjes) from Angola, Congo and Mozambique.
These people brought their cultural traditions and religion with them to the New World. The homogenization of the African people under the oppression of slavery was the catalyst for capoeira. Capoeira was developed by the slaves of Brazil as a way to resist their oppressors, secretly practice their art, transmit their culture, and lift their spirits. Some historians believe that the indigenous peoples of Brazil also played an important role in the development of capoeira.
Exchange Rate Support is usually figured on 1USD to 3BRL. If it this goes down, so does our support. Do the math for yourself. If it drops to 2BRL, than a missionary loses 1/3 of their support and so on. Keep in mind too, just because it is a 1:3 ratio, that doe not mean you can triple the amout that a missionary recieves in support. For example: If you took a dell laptop that cost $1000 USD, that exact same laptop would not cost you $333 USD in Brazil. Electronics are expensive in Brazil. You would have to pay $3000 USD for that same laptop if you were to buy it in Brazil. Simple Ecconomics!
