 Marcelo had scored an early one goal and Oscar Brazil third goal bettered result with a wonderful individual goal thuus striked lead 3:1  in favour of host nation with glorious match. Neymer  first goal goes low, a calculus sweep dashed into the net from 25 yards. His second, 19 minutes before the end, was altogether more controversial.controversial. Neymar’s long-range equalizer for Brazil against Croatia Dejan Lovren was judged to have fouled Fred in the box. Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura pointed to the spot, despite replays showing little contact had been made. Neymar converted, the ball deflecting in off the out-stretched arm of goalkeeper Stipe Pletikosa, to spark scenes of celebration. Brazil demonstrated various flaws and fragilities lacked swiftness, agility,skipping needed to remain on top slot..
Violent protests in Sao Paulo were quickly pushed to one side as drama switched to the football pitch.Croatia took a shock lead when Marcelo scored an own goal in the 11th minute.
Neymar pulled Brazil level after 30 minutes, but Croatia were left in fury when Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura pointed to the spot in the second half after Fred backed into Croatian defender Dejean Lovren and fell.
Barcelona golden boy Neymar, who was also booked, converted the penalty to put Brazil ahead and Chelsea midfielder Oscar scored a brilliant individual goal to seal the crucial victory in Group A.
The five-time winners start the tournament as overwhelming favourites, seeking to heal decades of hurt after the humiliation of losing the final to Uruguay on home soil in 1950. But they made a nervous start in the Corinthians Arena.
The European side, who narrowly lost to the feted Selecao in the opening stages of the 2006 World, threatened to tear up the script.
The edgy home side, who had won their previous nine matches, struggled to find their rhythm after a rousing crowd rendition of the national anthem in the new stadium.
Neymar, tipped by many to cement his place as one of the game’s global superstars on home soil, pulled his side level with a strike from outside the area just before the half-hour, sending the crowd into raptures.
The No. 10 ran received the ball from Oscar before driving forward and shooting across Stipe Pletikosa with his left foot, the ball nestling just inside the post.
Brazil dominated possession for the remainder of the half but failed to create many clear-cut openings to add to their lead.
The second half began in scrappy fashion, with both sides struggling to establish a rhythm.
On the hour mark Croatian coach Niko Kovac brought on midfielder Marcelo Brozovic for Kovacic as they continued to frustrate their illustrious opponents, drawing whistles from the impatient crowd.
Minutes later coach Luiz Felipe Scolari, who led Brazil to World Cup glory in 2002, pulled off Paulinho to make way for Hernanes.
Scolari, who cranked up the pressure by declaring on the eve of the tournament “This is our World Cup”, then brought on Bernard to replace Hulk and seconds later Fred won the penalty that devastated Croatia. It was a harsh punishment for Lovren.

The Tow Center team has launched three new research reports:
  • Sensors and Journalism by Tow Fellow Fergus Pitt
    This Tow Report focuses on the uses, the opportunities and the risks of sensors and journalism. It describes the landscape where sensors and journalism combine, and continues on to define necessary terms for understanding this area of research. Reporters are using sensors in an era when the rapid development of technology is moving data into the mainstream of journalism. The increasing ubiquity of sensors, their increasing capability and accessibility are on the supply side, while investigative reporters, computer aided reporters and journalist/technologists are on the demand side. The introduction also includes a chapter by scholar Charles Berret, who has written a sensor history, charting humanity’s efforts to extend the reach of our five natural senses. This Tow Report’s second section, containing case studies, examines seven projects that used sensors for journalism. Each study includes the story of what happened and then offers analysis in which we identify its distinctive or noteworthy elements, as well as the lessons journalists may take from the projects. The Tow Report also includes 12 chapters on the laws and ethics for reporting with sensors written by experts and the final section distills this report into a set of recommendations, including groups of strategic moves, good work practices, and efforts the industry may collectively consider.
  • The Art and Science of Data-driven Journalism by Tow Fellow Alexander Howard
    Journalists have been using data in their stories for as long as the profession has existed. A revolution in computing in the 20th century created opportunities for data integration into investigations, as journalists began to bring technology into their work. In the 21st century, a revolution in connectivity is leading the media toward new horizons. The Internet, cloud computing, agile development, mobile devices, and open source software have transformed the practice of journalism, leading to the emergence of a new term: data journalism. Although journalists have been using data in their stories for as long as they have been engaged in reporting, data journalism is more than traditional journalism with more data. Decades after early pioneers successfully applied computer-assisted reporting and social science to investigative journalism, journalists are creating news apps and interactive features that help people understand data, explore it, and act upon the insights derived from it. New business models are emerging in which data is a raw material for profit, impact, and insight, co-created with an audience that was formerly reduced to passive consumption. Journalists around the world are grappling with the excitement and the challenge of telling compelling stories by harnessing the vast quantity of data that our increasingly networked lives, devices, businesses, and governments produce every day. While the potential of data journalism is immense, the pitfalls and challenges to its adoption throughout the media are similarly significant, from digital literacy to competition for scarce resources in newsrooms. Global threats to press freedom, digital security, and limited access to data create difficult working conditions for journalists in many countries. A combination of peer-to-peer learning, mentorship, online training, open data initiatives, and new programs at journalism schools rising to the challenge, however, offer reasons to be optimistic about more journalists learning to treat data as a source.
  • Amateur Footage: A Global Study of User-Generated Content in TV and Online News Output by Tow Fellows Claire Wardle, Sam Dubberley, and Pete Brown
    Crediting is rare, there’s a huge gulf in how senior managers and news desks talk about it and there’s a significant reliance on news agencies for discovery and verification. The aim of this research project was to provide the first comprehensive report about the use of user-generated content (UGC) among broadcast news channels. UGC being – for this report – photographs and videos captured by people unrelated to the newsroom, who would not describe themselves as professional journalists. This research was designed to answer two key questions.  First, when and how is UGC used by broadcast news organizations, on air as well as online?  Second, does the integration of UGC into output cause any particular issues for news organizations? What are those issues and how do newsrooms handle them? This Tow Report and research provides the first concrete figures we have about the level of reliance on UGC by international news channels. It also explores six key issues that newsrooms face in terms of UGC. The report is designed around those six issues: workflow, verification, permissions, crediting, labeling, and ethics and responsibilities.

Knight Foundation Blog | Tow Center Program Defends Journalism from the Threat of Mass Surveillance, June 10, 2014
—Jennifer Henrichsen, Tow Fellow and Taylor Owen, Tow Center Research Director
We’ve long known that it’s easy to kill the messenger. Journalists are murdered all around the world for speaking truth to power. But, it wasn’t until recently that we realized how mass surveillance is killing source confidentiality, and with it, the very essence of journalism. By taking away the ability to protect sources—the lifeblood of journalism—surveillance can silence journalists without prosecutions or violence. Understanding the implications of state surveillance for the practice of journalism is the focus of our project, Journalism After Snowden.
