SÃO PAULO — Marina Silva would place second in the first round of the upcoming presidential elections, forcing a runoff in which she would tie with incumbent president, Dilma Rousseff, according to the first poll taken after the death of presidential candidate Eduardo Campos, killed in a plane crash last week.
Silva was Campos’s running mate and is all but certain to be announced by the Brazilian Socialist Party (PSB) as its electoral coalition’s new presidential candidate, expected this Wednesday.
According to the new Datafolha poll, Rousseff would take 36 percent of votes in the first round on 5 October, followed by 21 percent for Silva and 20 percent for Aécio Neves — requiring a runoff on 26 October.
A Rousseff-Silva second round would then be technically tied, given the margin or error of two percentage points either way, with 47 percent for Silva and 43 percent for Rousseff.

Wife and I recently went to see a play at the Royal Exchange in Manchester. The play was of course excellent, but so is the old Exchange building. Not only that, but the beautiful juxtaposition of the old Marble pillared building, and the new steelwork required to support the round theatre space.
Every time I go, I can’t resist taking the camera, and every time I go, I get a new set of images.
I’m usually hurried out of the place by Wife, who is not friends with my camera, but this time, I was able to string it out long enough to get a good set of images. (In my humble opinion of course). On the whole, I am quite happy with the results, and I will probably revisit them at some point to correct the perspective on some of them.
I seem to be using the autofocus lenses…

Coronation Street‘s former set is to be demolished, it has been confirmed.
The ITV soap moved from it’s central Manchester location earlier this year. The Granada TV lot has since become a tourist attraction, welcoming more than 200,000 visitors since it opened in April.
However, an ITV spokesperson has now told BBC News that the set will be demolished prior to handing over to the site’s new owner.
The set was refused listed status in 2012, despite having been the soap’s home for over 30 years.Developer Allied London, who purchased the lot for £26 million last year, are said to be planning to build flats, shops and offices, with the redevelopment project expected to begin in 2015.
“Coronation Street’s new home is at MediaCityUK and the tour at Quay Street was always for a limited time,” a spokesperson said. “Although we can’t confirm the official closure date –…

Q: Brazilian presidential candidate Eduardo Campos was killed when his private jet crashed Wednesday as it prepared to land in the city of Santos. Campos’ death sent shockwaves through the country’s political world and rattled financial markets just two months ahead of Brazil’s October presidential election. What effects will Campos’ sudden death have on the race, including any potential runoff?
A: Peter Hakim, member of the Advisor board and president emeritus of the Inter-American Dialogue: “On the presumption that Marina Silva replaces Eduardo Campos as the PSB nominee for president, the prospects for a runoff, which were about 50-50, will increase by some margin-simply because Marina is likely to receive more votes than Campos would have, probably more than doubling his vote count. Even if most of the PSB’s new votes come from the PSDB’s Aécio Neves, Dilma’s vote total will also decrease, making it harder for her to…

This is the MON or Museu Oscar Niemeyer, also known as The Eye (O Olho) for its very distinctive shape. It was projected by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, and it is considered the largest exhibition area in Latin America. Definitely, the MON is one of my favourite place in Curitiba.
