    The UN HQ in New York was made by many architects. They voted for a project that everyone should participate. The winner was a project made by Oscar Niemeyer and Le Corbusier. I really like this building. It is a monolite like building that reflects the sky. It speaks a lot of the purpose of the foundation of UN.

    Just in:

    According to IGN's last video review, Brazilian Heitor Villa-Lobos is in as a Great Artist :)

    At least we have a Portuguese-speaking artist in-game... it's a shame Fernando Pessoa or Camões aren't in.

    If Portugal is in, Camões should be too. He is the most important writer of early to mid XVI century and was a major influence in germany romanticism. Fernando Pessoa is starting to be discovered now outside the portuguese speaker community. I think the game should go with Camões, Padre António Vieira, and maybe Fernando Pessoa and José Saramago.
    I'm thinking not in personal taste, but in how influent their works was outside Portugal.

    Hahahahaha Nope. Where's Luiz Gonzaga? Roberto Carlos? These two are the lords of Brazilian popular music.

    EDIT:Vital Brazil is definitely the most deserving Brazilian scientist.

    I think I've heard that before, and I always wondered who was that from. That is amazing! Thank you! :)

    I agree Wirth Gonzagão, but would be cautious about Roberto Carlos. Choros No. 1 is originally for solo guitar. I like Choros No. 10 the most. But the aria from Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 is the most played Villa-Lobos music nowadays.

    The Brazilian Great Scientist should be César Lattes, co-discoverer pion particle, who should have received the physics nobel prize, but unfortunately didn't.

    We have a lot of scientists not credited, like César Lattes, Pe. Landell de Moura, Santos Dummond, even though I personally do not crediting him the invention of the airplane, but he made huge advances in aeronautics at the time, which is pretty much summed up balloons. Then he created a private plane to go visit his friends ...

    Pause the video at the exact moment, press Printscreen (or Shift+Command+3 for Mac users), paste it on Paint (skip this step if using a Mac), save it, then upload it on tinypic.com (or another image-hosting website).
