A1 - Brazil Group Stage Draw by 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Brazil, being at home, are huge favourites to power through the group and into the latter stages. Mexico,Croatia and Cameroon are decent, but an on form Selecao should top this group. 9 points in the aim, setting up a probable game against Holland. Gonna be a cracker!

Brazil is definitely prepared to get through this stage. If you watched their exhibition games against Honduras, Japan, and Mexico….WOW. Your inquiry is a bit hard to understand friend.

F1 - Argentina Group Stage Draw by 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Could this be Argentina’s year? They would play the runner up of Group E- Honduras,Ecuador or Switzerland most probably. This would see them into the quarters where they could play (massive speculation) Belgium- setting up a mouth watering game! After that it is all up in the air, but they have an easier start than many other teams. The ultimate party spoil is on!

Japan Group Stage Draw by 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil

Japan could be the ‘Dark Horses’. They probably are not going to win — but they could do well. The group’s tough, but not the toughest, they can easily win two out of three.

They’re aided by a couple of genuinely class players. Playmaker Shinji Kagawa is finally getting a decent run of matches at Manchester United and their linchpin Keisuke Honda remains greatly influential.

6. The Headbutt 10 Greatest Moments in World Cup History by 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil (Ft. Beanhead & FanaHOVA)

It takes something awesome to cap a playing career with pretty much every trophy and honour going. This simple Glasgow kiss made worldwide news in 2006, when Zizou took offence to Marco Materazzi’s remarks.

The best bit? The fact it ends up in the chest, as if he was going for a Mortal Kombat finish. (kids, ask your parents — assuming at least one 90s nerd found someone to reproduce with)

Amazingly Zidane had won the World Cup before (in 1998) and they never gave him a statue for that.

Best Players FIFA 14 by EA Sports

NOW THIS IS CONTROVERSIAL!

For many people, Ronaldo is the best player on FIFA 14. He is stronger, way better in the air and can play the lone striker role far more effectively that Messi. But then Messi is on the cover so…..

There are some players who are wildly overated and some who are wildly un-appreciated. Overall, FIFA always takes reputation into account, so an ageing player may have a rating they deserved one of two years ago.

Clean Pennies with Vinegar Grade school science experiments by Science Genius
  • A few old (not shiny) pennies
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Non-metal bowl
      * Paper towels
    

Pour the vinegar into the bowl and add the salt — stir it up.
Put about 5 pennies into the bowl and count to 10 slowly.

Take out the pennies and rinse them out in some water. Admire their shininess!

There is some pretty fancy chemistry going on in that little bowl of yours. It turns out that vinegar is an acid, and the acid in the vinegar reacts with the salt to remove what chemists call copper oxide which was making your pennies dull. You’re not done yet, though, lets try another experiment:

Add more pennies to the bowl for 10 seconds, but this time , don’t rinse them off. Place them on a paper towel to dry off. In time the pennies will turn greenish-blue as a chemical called malachite forms on your pennies. But wait, you’re still not done yet.

Place one or two nuts and bolts in the vinegar and watch — they may become COPPER in color! The vinegar removed some of the copper from the pennies, if there is enough copper in the vinegar, the copper will become attracted by to the metal in the nuts and bolts and they will take on a new copper color — cool.

The project above is a DEMONSTRATION. To make it a true experiment, you can try to answer these questions:

  1. Will other acids (like lemon juice or orange juice) work as well?

  2. Does this cleaning chemistry work on other coins?

  3. Do other amounts of salt make a difference in the chemistry of the experiment?

Egg in Salt Water Grade school science experiments by Science Genius

Make an Egg Float in Salt Water

An egg sinks to the bottom if you drop it into a glass of ordinary drinking water but what happens if you add salt? The results are very interesting and can teach you some fun facts about density.

What you’ll need:One egg,Water,Salt,A tall drinking glass

Instructions:

Pour water into the glass until it is about half full.Stir in lots of salt (about 6 tablespoons).Carefully pour in plain water until the glass is nearly full (be careful to not disturb or mix the salty water with the plain water).Gently lower the egg into the water and watch what happens.

What’s happening?

Salt water is denser than ordinary tap water, the denser the liquid the easier it is for an object to float in it. When you lower the egg into the liquid it drops through the normal tap water until it reaches the salty water, at this point the water is dense enough for the egg to float. If you were careful when you added the tap water to the salt water, they will not have mixed, enabling the egg to amazingly float in the middle of the glass.
