  VOLGOGRAD, Russia --- Russia's World Cup legacy is falling down --- at least some of it is.   A large earth embankment separating the World Cup stadium in Volgograd from the Volga River gave way, sending tons of dirt sliding into a road Sunday, the day the final was played in Moscow.   Heavy rain contributed to the sudden collapse, with footage posted online showing torrents of water washing away the sandy earth in the embankment.

Building a culture of innovation
