FIFA World Cup 2010

Overview of the 2010 FIFA World Cup?

IntroductionThe 2010 FIFA World Cup is the 19th World Cup held since 1930. It was hosted in South Africa and took place from June 11 to July 11. The tournament was won by Spain, who won for the first time. The silver medal was given to the Netherlands, runner-up for its third time. The bronze medal, along with third place, was given to Germany.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup marked the first time that a host country and a previous tournament's finalists could not advance to the Round of 16, with South Africa, France, and Italy all being eliminated in the Group Stage.

The World Cup also saw the return of the tradition of having an opening ceremony, following the cancellation of the 2006 one.

The official mascot is Zakumi, whose colors represent the team colors of South Africa.

The FIFA Executive Committee also selected Colombian singer, Shakira's, "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)" as the 2010 FIFA World Cup Official Theme Song and is sung in English and Spanish. The song is performed by Shakira and South Africa's own FreshlyGround. Shakira and FreshlyGround sang the song at both the opening ceremony and the closing ceremony. The official anthem, "Sign of a Victory" by R. Kelly, is used for accompanying matches. "Game On", the official mascot song plays whenever Zakumi appears on the playing field. All three songs appear in Listen Up! The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Album released on May 31.

Coca-Cola's selected anthem, "Wavin' Flag (Celebration Re-mix)" by K'naan, has also gained widespread notoriety, being sung in 6 different languages. The 2010 FIFA World Cup also holds the record among its predecessors for having the most theme songs (official and unofficial) at seven songs and one anthem.

The official match ball, manufactured by Adidas, was named the Jabulani meaning "bringing joy to everyone" in Zulu. Players have complained about the ball, which was made to fit the new specifications set by FIFA, stating that the movements of the ball are unpredictable. For the final match in Johannesburg, a special ball was made named the Jo'bulani.

Additional InformationAs a first, Australia competed under the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) after switching from the Oceania Football Confederation (OFC) in 2006.

New Zealand was the only undefeated team in the World Cup. Having only played three matches, it tied all three, but was unable to advance to the Round of 16.

The tournament also produced an interesting record as the top four goalscorers were from each of the four highest placing countries: David Villa (Spain - champions), Wesley Sneijder (Netherlands - runner-up), Thomas Müller (Germany - third place), and Diego Forlán (Uruguay - fourth place). All four players scored five goals each.

This World Cup brought Brazil's FIFA rating (based partly on performance in a previous World Cup and partly on performance on qualifications for the next World Cup) from 1st to 3rd.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup shares with the 2008 Summer Olympics the record for most competing nations in a sporting event. The tournament had an attendance of 3,178,856 total at its matches and accumulated 2.6 billion viewers worldwide.

The tournament also included its own oracle. Paul the Oracle Octopus from the Sea Life Centre in Germany was made internationally famous for predicting correctly 8 times out of 8 predictions. Paul correctly predicted all 7 of Germany's matches and the outcome of the final match between Spain and the Netherlands. Prior to each of those 8 matches, the keepers placed two boxes in front of Paul, each containing a mussel and labeled with the flag of the competing countries. Whichever box Paul ate out of was predicted to be the winner. Paul was an international star overnight in Spain and received death threats from the German public.

Major ControversiesKorea DPR (North Korea) was widely criticized with its decision to change the channels broadcasting the match between Korea DPR and Portugal. When the North Korean leaders realized that the Korea DPR team was going to lose to Portugal, they ordered the television companies broadcasting the match in North Korea to change the channels so that the public would not see its nation lose at such a landslide (7-0). The channels were changed after Portugal scored the fourth goal against Korea DPR.

The Netherlands' team received the most yellow cards at 22 and one red, while Spain won the FIFA Fair Play Trophy. This sparked outrage among Netherlands' supporters as they supposedly saw Spain's players faking most of the fouls made by Netherlands' players. The Netherlands team received 9 yellow cards in the final match while Spain received 5.

In the match of the United States and Slovenia in the Group Stage, the United States was trailing Slovenia 0-2. Against the odds, the United States caught up and leveled the game at 2-2. Near the matches end during a corner kick, a United States player was able to head the ball into the goal for the winning goal. The head referee, Koman Coulibaly, called an offsides, disallowing the goal without being able to produce an explanation for his decision. The replay cameras on the television broadcastings clearly showed that players were not offsides. It also showed that they were two Slovenian players illegally grabbing United States players. The game ended in a 2-2 tie. Enraged United States-supporters sent tapes of the match to the FIFA Executive Committee. After examining the tapes, they ruled that Coulibaly called a misjudgement. FIFA punished Coulibaly, preventing him from refereeing any future games.

In the match of Portugal and Spain in the Round of 16 while the game was tied at 0-0, Spanish striker David Villa scored Spain's only and winning goal from an offside move in the 63rd minute (0.22 meters according to ESPN axis). ESPN axis showed that the referee wasn't standing on the offside line and thus his vision was obscured by players between himself and Villa.

In the match of England and Germany in the Round of 16 while Germany lead 2-1, an English midfielder shot the ball and hit the crossbar and then the ground, before bouncing straight up which allowed German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to grab the ball. The head referee and assistants were unable to see the goal and disallowed it. England lost its chance to catch up to Germany and continued on to lose 4-1, its worst defeat in FIFA history. England-supporters protested to FIFA President Sepp Blatter to implement goal line technology to challenge on-field authority.

In the match of Argentina and Mexico in the Round of 16 while the game was tied at 0-0, an Argentinean player was able to score in an offsides positions. Head referee Roberto Rosetti allowed the goal enraging Mexican players and supporters. Argentina continued to win against Mexico in a 3-1 match.

In response to the mistakes for the England versus Germany match and Argentina versus Mexico match, FIFA President Sepp Blatter apologized to the English and Mexican Football Confederations for the referee misjudgments that went against them and promised to reopen discussions on implementing technology to aid in the judgment of match officials.

What languages are spoken in South Africa?

Zulu is the language with the most first language speakers in SA, followed by Xhosa and then by Afrikaans. South Africa has had an influx of people from all over the world and therefore other languages like Portugese, Hindi, Mandarin and Dutch is also spoken widely.

South Africa's oldest language is the San language and it is still spoken by a very small minority of San people in the Kalahari desert in South Africa.

An emerging trend in the youth of South Africa is to speak "SCHTapid" which they pick up from watching American television and cinema

There are 11 official languages in South Africa. They are Afrikaans, English, Ndebele, Northern Sotho, Sotho, Swazi, Tsonga, Tswana, Venda, Xhosa and Zulu. There are also many other languages spoke in South Africa that are not official ones.

South Africa is regarded as a multicultural and multilingual country with eleven official languages. Primarily, English is the initial language. (Afrikaans speaking people are the minority)

Equal use of the official languages does not imply every public notice or sign in eleven languages, yet in some cases this might be necessary. Luckily due to the fact that some languages are related some terms are similar as with this stop sign. The following has been used: "stop" from Afrikaans and English; "jama" from isiNdebele; "tshitopo" from Tshivenda; "yima" from isiZulu, isiXhosa and Xitsonga; "ema" from Sesotho (southern Sotho), Sesotho sa Leboa (Northern Sotho) and Setswana; and "mani" from siSwati. Multilingualism has not caught on to this degree and in general translations are only made where there is a real need.

Poverty

What are the causes of poverty in South Africa?

The major cause of poverty in South Africa is the lack of infrastructure in the country. South Africa needs to improve:

  1. transportation
  2. water and sanitation
  3. energy
  4. information technology
  5. urban development

Other causes of poverty in South Africa are:

  • Lack of skill and experience.
  • Many diseases like HIV/AIDS
  • Lack of education

They are many different reasons why there is poverty in south africa. One is not enough food. Another is that there aren't many jobs. There is also mosquitoes that carry diseases, so when people are bit, that disease get transferred to them. Many people die mostly of diseases, and if it is a parent, then their children are parentless. Orphans. To help, you can go to a Feed My Starving Children organization, or help at the pantry at your church.

Rain and Flooding
South Africa

Does it rain much in South Africa?

In South Africa Rainfall depends upon the region. Starting from South the Cape Province has a Mediterranean type of climate and rains during Winter season ( May/June/July/August ) and the average rain is normal . In the desert regions like Karroo rains very little. In the Qua-Zulu Natal there is more than enough rain and the region is normally very green. In the Johannesburg/ Pretoria region that is the financial heartland of South Africa rains mainly in Summer ( November/December/January/February) and the rain is normally average . This is a Subtropical climate. In general South Africa has less rainfall to satisfy the needs of the country. With the warming of the Globe rain fall patterns started changing for the worst. I hope a weather expert can give more details.
