If you could care less about the World Cup, you should listen to today’s show. I hope to bend your ear long enough to help you understand why this game has captured the hearts and souls of people around the world...and is leaving room for Americans to join the celebration.
I have embraced the game because it is such a strong representation of the multicultural values I so deeply desire for all of us. It is not a perfect sport...in fact there aren’t any perfect sports in the world. But there’s something about Futbol...or Soccer as we call it here in the US...that expands your thinking about team dynamics and national pride.
Bring your contrarian thoughts and anti-World Cup views to this show and let the debates begin!

The Global Marketplace
In the diversity workshops I conduct throughout the country I often test the knowledge of my participants by asking them to tell me how many people live in our world. Since most don’t know, they’re amazed to find out there are over 6.9 billion men, women, and children in our global village. China is the most populous country with 1.3 billion people, followed closely by India with 1.2 billion. And how many people live in the United States? More than 311 million, only five percent of the world’s population.
Do you have the capacity to wrap your heart, soul, and mind around the world of nearly 7 billion? Or are you like so many, focusing only on the handful of faces that you know in your circle of friends, family and coworkers?
I encourage you to stretch your mind, expand your horizons, and reach out to the faces of people in distant lands unknown.
Get The Census Facts
The best website to acquaint yourself with the current population numbers is the U.S. Census Bureau, www.census.gov. That website will give you statistical information on every hamlet in America. On its home page you’ll find a running population clock, updated daily that will help you keep track of total population numbers for the country and the world.
To find out the latest U.S. and world population numbers, log onto the Census Bureau website, www.census.gov. A few minutes on this site will educate you about the latest statistical analysis compiled from the 2010 census.You can find national data and statistical information for your own hometown.
I encourage you to visit the Census website at your earliest opportunity. You can discover data that may prove useful for an upcoming project, class assignment, or work-related task.
All of the Census Bureau information including video clips, photos, and graphic images are FREE of charge.
Create a census game with your family, friends, and colleagues. Offer a prize to the first person who correctly tells you how many people live in the world. Empower yourself with new knowledge, and share your wisdom wherever you go.
