This article falls under the intellectual category. The first official outpost in South America had their grand opening of Apple's first store in Rio de Janeiro. Although the Apple prices in Brazil continue to be very high, because of high import taxes in Brazil, they are expected to gradually come down.

Although this may appear to be a political joke, it is actually a serious statement against corrupt governemnt officials in Mexico. This easily falls into the Pollitical category. It's actual message is intriguing-many citizens of Mexico think that their politics are corrupt.

On Saturday, the city of Rio de Janeiro started celebrating the first day of the Brazilian holiday, Carnival. For almost a week, most businesses stop working entirely because everyone attends the festivals to watch the performers and listen to the music.

 

EQ: Do you think the United States should have a holiday similar to Carnival in Brazil? Do you think more or less people would want a holiday like that? Why?
