  • Speaking of water, sewage and dead dogs make the site for Olympic rowing in Rio a possible nightmare
  • Andy Revkin’s students explore the challenges Brazil faces preparing for the Cup and the Olympics
  • Incredible photoessay of pacification efforts in Brazil’s favelas in advance of the World Cup
