Big Hero Six-win the oscar for the best animated film.

I SORRY FOR ALL THE MISS SPELL WORDS AND SENTENCES AND I REALLY HOPE YOU GUYS CAN BARE IT WITH ME BECAUSE, I’M REALLY NEW TO ALL OF THIS AND I AM TRYING VERY HARD TO HOST THE BEST AUTMOSPHERE FOR EVERYONE,  SO ONCE AGAING I AM SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

Even though fans might still lament The Lego Movie being snubbed for the Best Animated Feature award, Marvel and Disney did happily manage to take home the award for the perfectly enjoyable superhero film Big Hero 6. It’s Marvel’s first major win at the Academy Awards, and Walt Disney Animation Studio’s second since last year’s win for Frozen.

Population boom: 40% of all humans will be African by end of century.

A seismic shift in demographic trends is transforming the world into an increasingly African place, creating huge economic opportunities, as well as new risks for political instability and extreme poverty, a UnitedNations agency says.

“The future of humanity is increasingly African,” says a report by the UNchildren’s agency to be issued on Tuesday, based on revised population forecasts that reveal an unprecedented demographic shift this century.

Africa accounted for only 9 per cent of the world’s population in 1950, but by the end of this century about 40 per cent of all humans (and nearly half of all children) will be African, heralding one of the fastest and most radical demographic changes in history, the report says.

While every other continent is seeing a slower rise in births, or even a decline, UNICEF projects that 1.8 billion babies will be born in Africa over the next 35 years, and the total African population will nearly quadruple to about 4.2 billion by the end of the century.

Africa could reap a massive demographic dividend from its bigger labour force and relatively fewer dependents, the report says. The population boom could “transform the continent, breaking centuries-old cycles of poverty and inequality.”

Ronaldo 101 (The Study Of C.Ronaldo)

Canadian university offers chance to study Cristiano Ronaldo.

The University of British Columbia Okanagan are offering a module on the Ballon d’Or winner for their sociology students due to his impact on Portuguese and global culture .

A Canadian university is offering fans of Cristiano Ronaldo the opportunity to take a course in the Real Madrid star.

The University of British Columbia Okanagan is enrolling for a fourth-year sociology module on Ronaldodue to his popularity and influence on Portuguese and global society.

Luis LM Aguiar, associate professor of sociology in UBC Okanagan’s Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences, said: “Sociology is nothing if not the delving into the processes of structuring identities and experiences and exposing the social forces that push these processes.

“In this case, I’m interested in how Ronaldo has been used to construct several discourses about who he is, what makes him distinct as a footballer, what is his relationship to Portugal, Madeira (his hometown) and indeed Portuguese identity.”

During the semester-long course, students will examine the stereotypical image of Ronaldo and the Portuguese diaspora.

“Ronaldo is said to embody features and characteristics of speed, strength, competetiveness, dogged work ethic, discipline, and adaptability,” added Aguiar on news.ok.ubc.ca.

“These features are also in a sense ‘very Portuguese’ since the Portuguese outside the homeland are nothing if not constructed as hard workers, disciplined and determined. Even as a global athlete transcending geographical boundaries, Ronaldo cannot  escape the stereotypical constructions of ‘the Portuguese’.

“My two greatest passions are football and critical sociology. A course on Cristiano Ronaldo gives me the opportunity to combine the two.

“While I’m an admirer of Ronaldo, I’m also a sociologist interested in understanding the social and economic forces driving the various constructions of this athlete and what this says about our contemporary values and culture.”

Ronaldo is not the first Madrid name to become the subject of higher education. Staffordshire University offered students the chance to take a module in ‘David Beckham studies’ prior to the former England captain’s move from Manchester United to Spain.
