2010 World Cup Stadiums: Ellis Park Stadium

The Ellis Park football stadium is located in South Africa’s largest city, Johannesburg, also known as Jozi, or Jo’burg. Johannesburg is also the wealthiest province in South Africa due to the fact that’s one of the sources for the trade of gold and diamonds in the world.

The Ellis Park football stadium has hosted many important sporting events such as the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup final between Brazil and USA. This stadium was built in 1928 exclusively for rugby, but it was demolished and reconstructed again just for rugby.

This beautiful 2010 World Cup stadium was named after a city council named JD Ellis, who approved the used of 13 acres of land exclusively for a stadium.

This is the stadium in which the iconic scene of President Nelson Mandela lifting the 1995 World Cup trophy of rugby was born. The South African rugby team earned the cup beating the team from New Zealand, and history was made in this stadium.

You can watch the story in the movie “Invictus”, directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Morgan Freeman as Mandela, and Matt Damon as Francois Piernaar, the captain of the rugby team.

The matches that will be played in this stadium are:

June 12th. Group B Argentina vs. Nigeria
June 15th. Group G Brazil vs. Korea DPR
June 18th. Group C Slovenia vs. USA
June 21st. Group H Spain vs. Honduras
June 24th. Group F Slovakia vs. Italy
June 28th. Round of 16 1G vs. 2H
July 3rd. ¼ Finals W55 vs. W56

Ellis Park football stadium is home of one of the most popular clubs in South Africa, the Orlando Pirates. The climate goes from 39 to 75 Fahrenheit degrees, which is very appropriate for a great soccer match.

However, on the downside, Johannesburg is one of the most violent cities in South Africa with a high number of rapes, robberies, as well as assault and murders, so the authorities are making security a high priority during the 2010 World Cup.

2010 World Cup: History of the World Cup

The FIFA World Cup, the Super Bowl of world soccer, is just around the corner. While many Americans take their children to play soccer on Saturdays in the park, most Americans do not carry the passion for FIFA’s World Cup, especially when it is compared the NFL’s Super Bowl, MLB’s World Series or the NBA’S Finals. To celebrate the beginning of the FIFA World Cup, use this primer to get you started on the right foot for this cup series.

The FIFA World Cup started back in 1924, according to FIFA, when soccer was included in the Olympics. The International Olympic Committee decided that organization of the soccer event should be done by a FIFA, and they have been the organizers since. While they were to recognize the Olympics as a world championship, the President of FIFA, Jules Rimet, also wanted to see a Championship run solely by FIFA. In 1930, the first World Cup opened in Uruguay, but turnout was reduced due to the distance Europe’s major teams had to travel by ship.

As a result of the long voyage, only four European teams participated in the event. This damaged the pride of the host country, Uruguay, as they had won both the 1924 and 1928 Olympic championship, and they now felt like they were being shunned by the community. As a result, Uruguay, who had also won the World Cup, refused to play in the 1934 World Cup. They missed only one World Cup, though, and they have participated every year since.

The event has grown immensely over the years, and with the advent of mass media, the audience has grown with it. The original World Cup could only be viewed by those at the location, and reports were transmitted by wire to news outlets around the world. With the economies of the world collapsing, though, it was difficult to make headway. Skip ahead to 2006’s television broadcast, and the worldwide total viewership reached 26.29 billion cumulative viewers for all matches, and, on average, 259 million people tuned in to watch each match.

The event is organized as a series of tournaments held by the regional FIFA Confederations, which run the rules and regulations on a geographic-based scale. These regional tournaments act as feeders to the main World Cup, which in 2010, will be held in South Africa. The qualifying teams will be set into groups, and a series of matches will be played between the teams of the group, much like conferences in the National Football League. The leaders of each conference will then be seeded into tournament brackets, taking the top two teams from each group. From there, they progress like any other tournament bracket, with a single knockout elimination. The one exception, obviously, is the Semi-finals losers, who square off to determine third and fourth place.

This tournament, in 2010, will take place in South Africa, and the games will be played in various cities across the small nation. It also marks the 80th year of international competition in a sport which relies heavily on the individual, and team efforts, as opposed to money and technology. As the eyes of the world are cast on to South Africa, the only question remaining on anyone’s mind is, “Are they ready for us?”

2010 White House Easter Egg Roll: How to Get a Souvenir Egg

Each participant in the White House Easter Egg Roll will receive a souvenir egg. The official 2010 White House Easter Egg has not been unveiled yet, but is expected to be a painted wooden egg with the signatures of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

2010 White House Easter Egg Roll Theme

The White House Egg Roll is a tradition which dates back to 1878, and is always observed on the Monday after Easter. This year, the Easter Egg Roll will be held on April 5 with a theme of “Ready, Set, Go!”.

“Ready, Set, Go!” was chosen as the theme because it’s in line with First Lady Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move’ initiative, which focuses on reducing childhood obesity.

Easter Egg Roll and Other Events

The Easter Egg Roll is held on the South Lawn of the White House from 8 am- 5pm. Participants use a large serving spoon to roll decorated eggs across the lawn. In 2009, there were five different start times in order to accommodate over 30,000 ticket holders. Each group has an hour and a half to participate in the egg roll and other events.

In addition to the Easter Egg Roll, there’s an Easter egg hunt, stations where children learn how to make healthy food, music, sports, storytelling, reading, crafts, and Michelle Obama’s vegetable garden is open for viewing. White House press releases caution that there is not enough time to do everything, so participants must pick and choose which activities to do.

White House Easter Egg Roll Tickets

Tickets are awarded through an online lottery. The only stipulation for entry is that a family has to have at least one child under the age of 12. This year’s lottery closed on February 28, and winners were announced on March 4. Because the date of Easter changes every year, look for the lottery about six weeks before Easter, with winners being announced approximately a month before Easter.

How to Win a White House Easter Egg Roll Souvenir Egg

Where to Buy a White House Easter Egg Roll Souvenir Egg

2010 White House Easter Egg Roll souvenir eggs are available in pink, yellow, green, and purple. A boxed set of all four colors is $26.50. The 2010 souvenir eggs are $7.50 a piece if purchased separately.

2009 White House Easter Egg Roll souvenir eggs are still available in rose, orange, blue, and green. A boxed set of all four colors is $15.00. The 2009 wooden souvenir eggs are $4 a piece if purchased separately.

The souvenir eggs can be purchased online at the National Parks Foundation website’s store page. Click here for a link to that page.

Sales of the White House Easter Egg Roll souvenir eggs help support the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House.

The First Night Lineup has a variety of music, from blues and rock to folk, Celtic, and even classical. Comedians, magicians, and kids’ musicians round out the performances. If you’re looking for kids’ entertainment, the Crayola Gallery at the Banana Factory on 3rd Street in Bethlehem’s South Side has a family-friendly lineup from noon to 9:30 pm with a mixture of music, magic, and clowning.

Another great First Night Bethlehem venue for families is the Steel Ice Center on East 1st Street. There will be a public ice skate from 4:30pm to 9:30pm, and snowman building from 6pm to 7pm. These family events on New Year’s Eve are fun for everyone and a great way to ring in 2010 as a family.

Buttons can be purchased online, in the Gallery Shoppe at the Banana Factory, or at the door of any First Night Bethlehem venue the day of.

PEEPS Fest is a brand new addition to New Year’s Eve in Bethlehem, PA, showcasing the famous confection from Just Born Inc., which are made in Bethlehem. This 2-day event is great for families; it celebrates marshmallow PEEPS through music, art, and family fun.

The First Night Bethlehem fireworks go off at 2 times during the night: 5:45pm and midnight. The earlier show is perfect for families with smaller children, and while the show isn’t quite as elaborate as its midnight counterpart, it’s still a good show.

2010 New Year's Resolutions Are Being Watched

It’s not widely known or discussed, but all New Years resolutions are recorded and tracked by God himself. Each day he can be seen writing down each person’s resolutions for the upcoming year in an enormous ledger. When asked how he finds the time to take on yet another task considering all of his other responsibilities, he replies, “I’m God.”

As our conversation continued, I learned that people make their New Years resolutions with good intentions but unfortunately unrealistic expectations. For example, every year Walter Hanks from Colton, Ohio makes the resolution to climb and reach the peak of a large mountain. But Hanks has no climbing experience, and at no point during the year does he make any effort to acquire any. Finally, his resolution is totally discredited when he annually gets a nosebleed fetching the Christmas Tree from the attic.

“Lets look at some statistics,” God says leafing through his ledger. “The most common New Years resolution this year with over 300 million submissions is, ‘Lose Weight’ and the most unique resolution with 1 submission is ‘Kill God’, which is submitted every year by the Devil. I actually called him on this one year and he said; “Oh; Is that a problem? Ok then, put me down for Lose Weight.”

God went on to compare the contrasting resolutions between people in the public eye. For example, in 2010 Oprah Winfrey wants to rid the world of poverty and sickness, whereas Dick Cheney wants to rid the world of poor and sick people.

There is some frustration with how quickly people will break their resolutions. “I’ll have guys give up alcohol for the year, then turn around and start drinking beer while watching the Rose Bowl on New Years Day. New Years Day!! When I see someone being that negligent, I may induce an instant heart attack”. As a look of horror came over this interviewer’s face, God said “Hey relax, I’m only kidding. But seriously, those guys annoy me!”

As our conversation was winding down, God admitted that even he makes New Years resolutions. “Well there are a few things I would like to improve on, but this year, I’m working on my biggest flaw” God says. “Which is don’t create and define a new species while drinking. For example, making salmon swim upstream, leaping through rapids and waterfalls, just to lay their eggs and then die within a week. Yeah, that was all tequila.”

2010 Y!CN Content of the Year Awards: My Nominations

For those readers that are not current, “the Yahoo! Contributor Awards are a continuation of the Associated Content platform’s annual People’s Media Awards (PMAS).”

Yahoo! will soon proclaim the winners of the 2010 Yahoo! Contributor Awards. The timing is perfect, because the Yahoo! contributor network just rolled out the Contributor Connect: The Y! Contributor Network Blog for important announcements.

There is no question that the panel that was assigned the task of determining the winners for category of the 2010 Yahoo! Outstanding Contributor Content Award was faced with an enormous challenge. With the wealth of talented Yahoo! Contributors there were thousands upon thousands pieces of content that merited consideration. The number of winners for the 2010 Yahoo! Outstanding Contributor Content of the Year Award increased from the three content awards that the 2009 PMA awards recognized to five. However, I doubt this makes the final decisions any easier.

Everyday that I read articles on Associated Content, I learn something new, gain a new insight or benefit in one way or another. Therefore, I in my own personal nomination process I made a huge compilation of potential nominations. It was a difficult process to winnow my nominations to a manageable number. I found that my decision making process was fluid and tended to ebb and flow, depending on a whole variety of factors. Ultimately, I nominated eight pieces of content for the 2010 Yahoo! Outstanding Contributor Content of the Year Award.

Obviously, my article: 2010 Y!CN Outstanding Contributor of the Year Awards: My Nominations was public. Therefore I produced this article following the same logic, believing public nomination articles makes the contributors feel special and perhaps help each one of them gain additional exposure. Accordingly, in this article I identified seven of my eight nominations for the 2010 Yahoo! Contributor Content of the Year Awards. For better or worse, when I went through my notes to produce this article, one piece of the paper was ripped off and therefore I could only see seven of my final eight nominations. I re-read many articles trying to recall which one was my eighth nomination. There were so many quality articles that I was considering, I couldn’t remember my last selection. However, chances are that if I have read any of your work in 2010, you could have been my last nominee. In any event, what follows is a list of seven of the eight pieces of content that I nominated for the 2010 Yahoo! Contributor Content of the Year Awards. They are arranged in no particular order.

Jack Wellman demonstrates that he is biblical scholar with his academic article: Jesus’ Amazing Fulfillment of Hundreds of Prophecies.

Mike Hatz presents a living and breathing article about priorities in his article: Regaining Control (and Making Tough Choices).

Kay Balbi gets personal and discusses how to overcome a supreme challenge with her article: Born Without a Vagina.

Maria Roth reminds her audience how one sick family affects an entire family with her poem: Happy Birthday Audrey! You’re Awesome Zach!.

Karen Bishop permits her reader to feel her painful affliction in her article: My Journey Living with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.

Theresa Wiza shares a gem of tip about how we all can make this world a better place with her article: I Wish Someone Would Do Something About That!.

Cherie Bowser writes about a strange character indeed in her story. The Headless Man Bull Rider of Associated Content.

2010 New Years Resolution: I Am a Professional Writer!

Last year, I set my resolution to write more. Do to the traumatic year I had, I fell extremely short of that goal. Oh, I still wrote and accepted a few assignments, but with everything going on in my life, working on my craft was not a very high priority.

This year I plan to restructure how I look at my writing. Sure I have made some money, but does it pay the bills? Not by a long shot. When most people ask if I work, I tell them I do a little writing from home. Thier next thought is surely, “Oh, so you don’t work?” Well, anyone that is trying to make a living writing can tell you it is a lot of work.

So, my New Years Resolution for 2010 is to change the way I look at myself. No longer will I say, “I do a little writing from home.” Ask me what I do and I am going to tell you, “I am a professional writer!” And that is just what I plan to be! I have set myself up a few goals. Nothing too hard or stringent, because I think people can set goals to high, and that is why a lot of New Years Resolutions die out, even before the end of January comes along.

New Years Resolution #1

Sure there are a lot better writers than I am, but I will remind myself that there are a lot worse writers out there too. I think I have insecurity issues when it comes to my writing. I’ll see this really good assignment, or call for content from magazines, and think I am not good enough to write for them. After all they are a major market! I am done with that! No pain, no gain, right? I plan to submit right along with the best of them.

New Years Resolution # 2

Marketing myself as a professional writer is something I haven’t been doing much of either. Some writers will tell you if you write well, the article will market itself. I agree with that in some ways, but yet no body knows about a great product, unless someone markets it to the public! So, I plan on spending some time marketing me; you know getting my name out there. Don’t worry, I won’t spam you!

New Years Resolution #3

Marketing myself also means marketing my writing. We are like peanut butter and jelly! We are looking for the perfect slice of bread! So that means attempting some of those markets, that I have always wanted to write for. You know, the big guys that actually pay a decent amount for an article or story. Oh, don’t get me wrong, I have been very thrilled to earn the few PV pennies from sites like Associated Content and Helium, but it is time to move up in my expectations!

New Years Resolution #4

Fiction. Hmm, I have attempted a few short stories at Associated Content. They were well received by my readers. Some of my writer friends even told me I was pretty good at it, and should pursue fiction a little heavier. I don’t know about good, but I sure had fun writing fiction. So, I plan to take a stroll down fiction lane, and submit a few pieces to some fiction venues too.

New Years Resolution #5

Ask me what I do. I am a professional writer! There, that sounded pretty good to me, how about you? From now on, I don’t make a little money writing from home. I earn my living through my writing, and being able to do it from home is a perk! Hmmm, that sounds pretty good…I guess I am not to bad at this writing stuff….

Resolution #6 would be to learn links! For now, here are a couple of my fiction attempts.
