To promote the World Cup, ESPN have recently released their brilliant advertising campaign for this summer’s World Cup 2010 in the form of creatively designed artistic posters. 33 in total, all 32 nations are represented with the South Africa World Cup poster to highlight what’s to come.
Visit the official Facebook site to download each one of the posters as you anxiously await June, 11th.
We’ve made the PowerPoint presentation and the video with each nation’s poster (ordered alphabetically). Let’s taste the wonderfulness of 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa in advance:
It’s Memorial Day again. It’s also the time we should cast our minds back to the history. the great physical and mental tolls war takes on both soldiers and civilians has been a recurrent theme, as has the senselessness of most armed struggle. From the aftermath of the Civil War, to the absurd brutality of the Great War, to the anti-fascist fight in Spain in the late 1930s, to the unprecedented carnage of World War II, to the divisive tragedy in Vietnam, to the current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, the costs of America’s military ventures paid by the men and women who carry them out were always decried.
To mark this Memorial Day, we’ve assembled a small collection of archival articles and images of war and its victims.
Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday observed on the last Monday of May (May 31 in 2010). Formerly known as Decoration Day, it commemorates U.S. soldiers who died while in the military service. First enacted to honor Union soldiers of the American Civil War (it is celebrated near the day of reunification after the Civil War), it was expanded after World War I.
Here we collected the top 10 movies for Memorial Day:
- They Were Expendable (1945)
- Twelve O’clock High (1949)
- From Here to Eternity (1953)
- In Harms Way (1965)
- Patton (1970)
- MASH (1970)
- An Officer And A Gentleman (1982)
- Saving Private Ryan (1998)
- The Patriot (2000)
- We Were Soldiers (2002)
