Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). From 1930 to 1970, the Jules Rimet Trophy was awarded to the World Cup winner. It was originally simply known as the World Cup or Coupe du Monde, but in 1946 it was renamed after the FIFA president Jules Rimet who set up the first tournament.
    In 1970, Brazil's third victory in the tournament entitled them to keep the trophy permanently. However, the trophy was stolen in 1983, and has never been recovered, apparently melted down by the thievesAfter 1970, a new trophy, known as the FIFA World Cup Trophy, was designed. The experts of FIFA, coming from seven different countries, evaluated the 53 presented models, finally opting for the work of the Italian designer Silvio Gazzaniga. The new trophy is 36 cm (14.2 in) high, made of solid 18 carat (75%) gold and weighs 6.175 kg (13.6 lb). The base contains two layers of semi-precious malachite while the bottom side of the trophy bears the engraved year and name of each FIFA World cup.

    ...
    T.H. Yes he killed about 6 million Jews. Many people think that it was more many think it was less but that is just an estimate. In his rule they killed so many Jews, Gypsies and Mentally retarded that they needed to use mass graves to bury the bodies. That is why everything is just an estimate.
    Interviewer: There was something called the Hitler Youth, is that correct?
    ...
    to meet Hitler, oh joy oh joy!Hitler.
    Interviewer: So he invaded almost all of Europe, how many countries did he invade?
    T.H. Well it depends most people think that he invaded 20-25 countries
    Interviewer: Hitler invaded the U.S.S.R., right
    T.H. After he had almost all of Europe he felt confident that he could successfully invade the U.S.S.R. he did and that was going ageist a treaty. When he went in he had to get his troops over the Ural Mountains and while doing that his supplies diminished and dwindled.

    Interviewer: Thank you for meeting with me today and i hope you have a nice evening!
    T.H. Your welcome.welcome and back at ya!

    JL : um......well i think that the Mespelbrunn castle is my favorite becarse of the unique thing that it has.

    MG: wher is this castle located.
    JL: Burghausen is located Bavaria.
    ...
    MG:
    u should know alot about it. The first question I would like to ask is where is this castle located. Burghausen is located in Bavaria. So when you built it what was your image of the castle supposed to look like? Well I planned for it to look like mideval castle and thats about what it looks like. It also is the longest castle in Germany. Well is it a populer castle? Yes it's good because people come to get a feel for mideval castle too. So obviously since it is a castle, there must be some kind of defense sytem. Yes actually parts of our defensive structure go into town. It also is high up, so that helps too. Because it is high up it's complicated to access water. Burghausen is a pretty strong castle. We also added separate torcher chambers to it. So if someone went to the castle would they be able to see some of the torchering devices? Yes you could see them there on display in one of are two museums. When was the last remodeling done. I believe it was during the 15th century. Does the castle have a good view? Yes, it has a splendid view you can see the country side, it also has a good view of the town, and you can see the Salzch river. How many courtyards does it have. The castle has six courtyards, and one of the courtyards have a collection of canonballs. Another fact about courtyards is that each one has its own drawbridge, moat, and gate. The sixth courtyard is the biggest, it has a clock tower. The fifth has a gothic chapel, and it was built in the 1940s.
    ...
    your favorite castle? um....castle?um.... well i
    test Q's
    you have to answer the questions right. first read the caption second get a peace of paper to right the questions on and third read the Questions and answer! good luck!
    ...
    people who lived in the castal are .... the noble family, page, knights, priest,fool, gong farmer

    {http://www.roadstoruins.com/images/Burghausen2.JPG} BurghausenBurghausen is one
    The castle is atop a long finger of land that seemingly was waiting throughout history for the right castle. Burghausen takes advantage of every inch of the hill top, stretching the complex out over a full kilometer. A total of six courtyards or baileys divide the complex.
    There are two museums within the castle and the complex is much as it was when it underwent its last major construction period to increase its fortifications in the 15th century. Parts of the defensive structure reaches down to the village and is integrated into its town walls. ll together Burghausen is probably one of the most powerful and impressive of all Germany's castles.

    Today is August 27, 1972. The Olympics started with out many problems. Fighting for the Cold War has been put on hold and athletes were allowed safe passage to the Olympics.
    Today is August 28, 1972. Shmuel Lalkin, the Israeli security specialist, pointed out that there were no armed security guards anywhere, but no one seemed too worried that everyone is coming and going as they please. He also is worried that the athletes are housed in a relatively isolated part of the Olympic Village which he feels makes his team particularly vulnerable to an outside assault. The German authorities assure Lalkin that extra security would look after the Israeli team.

Two of the three remaining terrorists were supposedly killed my the Mossad shortly after the standoff. It was later determined that the two terrorists were killed by secret assassination squads. Jamal Al-Gashey is thought to be the only surviving terrorist left and is living today in hiding. The games have been suspended today because of the hostage takeover.

    In Germany a normal breakfast for them looks like a cross between a deli meat and cheese platter and a continental breakfast. It is
    cold meats, sausages and cheeses witch are served along side a variety of breads and sweet toppings like jam, marmalade and honey. Soft-boiled eggs, cereal and fruit would round out a large breakfast.

For example sausages have been around since 600-700bc and were pioneered in Greece, china and Rome.
