IndyCar driver Tony Kanaan is sitting beside his best friend and teammate Rubens Barrichello. Together they are talking about the value of friendship and how important it is to separate competitiveness from what is most important in life. It is then Kanaan, the 2004 IndyCar Series champion, recalls a plane ride this season that occurred after he had finished ahead of Barrichello, in his first season of IndyCar racing after 19 years in Formula 1. "Eduardo, Rubens' oldest son, is sitting beside me on the plane," Kanaan, 37, said.

John P. Snyder,71, who developed the mathematical equations needed to convert images of the Earth taken from space into accurate maps, died Monday in Olney.Mr. Snyder was a chemical engineer and was never formally trained in the methods cartographers use to draw the Earth on a flat surface. But his series of 82 equations, worked out on a calculator, solved a problem that had vexed experts.The equations accounted for the distortion in satellite images caused by the double motion of orbiting spacecraft and the rotation of the Earth.

SAO PAULO, Brazil -- This is a country that clings to the image of itself as a "racial democracy," insisting that discrimination is by income or class but not race, and technically the elevator rules preserve this distinction.One elevator carries a placard marked "social," for residents and their guests, while the other is marked "service," reserved for maids and workmen, or residents trailing sand, sports equipment or animals.Such an arrangement would not seem out of place in any Fifth Avenue co-op in New York.

SAO PAULO, Brazil -- Pope Benedict XVI gave this enormous Roman Catholic country its first native-born saint yesterday, canonizing an 18th-century Franciscan monk credited with providing thousands of miracle cures. The pope also used the occasion to remind followers to live like saints: "The world needs transparent lives, clear souls, pure minds that refuse to be perceived as mere objects of pleasure." Thousands attended the ceremony to elevate Friar Antonio de Sant'Anna Galvao to sainthood.

SAO PAULO, Brazil -- President President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva faces a tough runoff election later this month after his stunning fall from prohibitive favorite to co-survivor in Sunday's presidential contest. The charismatic da Silva, whose cries of "I was betrayed!" seemed to carry him relatively unscathed through sundry other corruption cases, could not overcome the dirty tricks scandal that broke two weeks before the election and left many Brazilians appalled. "The image of a shot in the foot is the blandest one that occurs to illustrate what Lula's campaign did to the candidate Lula - putting in high risk a re-election that was certain," the columnist Fernando de Barros e Silva wrote in yesterday's Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- A horrifying videotape of the lynching of three criminals on a frontier ranch has renewed controversy over the methods by which Brazilians, in the absence of a working legal system, often seek to impose ad hoc justice.In a video filmed by an amateur photographer and broadcast to a stunned national television audience in January, three men who had taken women and children hostage in a robbery were beaten, kicked, drenched in gasoline and set afire by residents of a town in Mato Grosso state, about 1,700 miles northwest of Rio."

Take The Bridges of Madison County and stitch on a Hallmark Card coda. Embroider in swaths of the gurgling infantilism of Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Then give the novel a central character straight out of a Horatio Alger saga -- except that instead of Dudley Doright chastely scaling a golden staircase of probity and personal industry, the character-in-chief is a 22-year-old from a Brazilian back-country village who makes her fortune -- quite cheerfully -- doing three tricks a night out of a friendly Swiss family brothel in Geneva.

Pope John Paul II's current trip to the United States is likely to be his last visit. Aging and frail, the pontiff is clearly in the waning years of his papacy. Yet, on the political front, he is no less relevant.Media attention from his stops in New York, Newark, N.J., and Baltimore will probably focus on contentious issues, such as abortion and family planning. Pope John Paul's importance, however, is not in church social doctrine, which, after all, dates back almost two millenniums.His real legacy is his role as statesman.
