She's not influential outside the USA, except maybe South Africa where she opened up that school.

GUYS: Here is the true story
Firstly, IOA rejected CWG pressure to go for USD 790 Mln Insurance cover and insisted on sticking to USD20 Mln as per the host city contract signed. This was even dicussed tilll last week and when on 8th Sept IOA firmly rejected CWG pressure, Fennel took up the 6 month old CAG report though he himself said 1 1/2 months back that things are OK to bully the IOA.

Secondly, the CWG was eyeing most of the infrastructure projects to go to UK, Canadian & British firms and with Indian PWD getting most of these, they even felt the larger pie was lost. But unfortunately the PWD & Indian Beauraucracy made things worst for expeditipous implementation instead of proving the otherwise to the world.


All the Projects will b perfectly good for CWG 2010 in Delhi and much better than KL 98 and Manchester 02.

I wud say Melbourne did a good job in 06 and Delhi is not going to do to that perfection as Melbourne used it not to create white elephants but good legacy perfectly planned.
Manchester & KL: Two Extremes
On the other hand Manchester was a scaled down version as UK OC realised that going for a grand Infrastructure wud not help in Manchester as these wud b burden after Games as they understood that excepting London no other English City had the capability to sustain such infrastructure and even bid for Olympics ( Ref. Manchester's awfully failed 96 & 2000 bids)
What KL did was over the board and they r still crying to maintain these mamoths with almost no actvity there.
Considering these Mebourne did a very good job.

South Africa 2020, u know wat? IOC rejects any sympathy candidature/continental rotation and took these word of its wish list in 2000. So South Africa forget dreaming about Summer Games in near future. FIFA regreted its policy of continental rotation which lead to desparate choice candidates like South Africa & Brazil. Pls may recollect what Toronto Mayor said for the 2008 Olympic bid about S Africa, and that is true considering the political history and present socio economic patterns of South Africa.

Moreover RIO I suppose deserves a first timer sympathy but considering the violence on streets and unruly culture, there will b second thoughts.

No, she's just worth around 3 Billion dollars and was ranked as #2 of the world's ultra famous by Forbes; but no, outside of the U.S. and "that" school, no one really knows of her.....

I thought people were bashing Forbes "insolit" rankings after Rio was ellected the happiest perceived city in the world, and Chicago the most stressfull

Have you ever even considered that OTHERS read this comments, not only yoursefl?? And that quoting somebody doesn't necessarily means talking to a person, instead of just commenting the info? Because you don't demonstrate it...

And there's the "thing" thta my commentary was neither false or mislocated, so it becomes immediatly relevant, like you or not. But if your attitude is always of prepotence and offenses, I'd seriously disencourage you in participating on this thread. Go talk your rebel garbage somewhere else.

By the way secondcity1, he's not directing anything towards you. He's just quoting you and filling in totally uninvolved text. Just wanted to clear that up like he apparently did towards myself.

Rebel garbage? Please, lay off the comic books. I suppose in your little world that was totally uninflammatory and completely different from my "offensive" comment behavior. What a hypocrite.

Crime


BOPE policemen training.
Rio has high crime rates, especially homicide, in poor areas dominated by drug lords, primarily in the North Zone.[78] As of 2007, the homicide rate of the greater metropolitan area stood at nearly 30 victims per week, with the majority of victims falling to mugging, stray bullets or narcoterrorism.[79][80] In 2006, 2,273 people were murdered in the city giving it a murder rate of 37.7 cases for every 100,000 people.[81]
According to federal government research,[5] the city itself ranks 206th in the list of the 5,565 most violent cities in Brazil and first in total number of firearm-related deaths. Between 1978 and 2000, 49,900 people were killed in Rio.[82] The Urban Warfare involves drug-traffic battle with police fighting against outlaws, or even corrupt policemen on their side.
Rio de Janeiro's low paid and ill-equipped police are violent as well, it has been said.[83] In 2007, the police allegedly killed 1,330 people in the state,[84] an increase of 25 percent over 2006 when 1,063 people were killed, in 2003 that number plateaued at 1,195. In comparison the American police killed only 347 people in whole of the United States during 2006.
Yes, great job at proving what a wonderful safe haven Rio de Janeiro is....

Yes, great job at proving what a wonderful safe haven Rio de Janeiro is....
Guy watever u have mentioned about RIO's safety is highly disturbing. Cos the safety & security of almost 100,000 foreign vsitors & officials wud b in peril in such a city.

I wonder how cud FIFA accept the same for WC? Didn't they feel intimidated? Maybe WC is concentrated in a couple of venues and tourist/official visit wud max b during the Ceremonies. If RIO 206th in crime Brazil with such astonishing figures, wat about the Top City - Scary thought - Travel Advisory - AVOID RIO DURING OLYMPICS?

But RIO needs to work hard on improving upon such an image. Hopefully they will.

In 2006, Chicago had 467 homicides. Rio had 2,273. Now I will factor in that Rio is larger than Chicago, so that makes a difference. So to be fair-

For every 100,000 people-
Chicago Murder Rate-15.6
Rio-37.7

And yes, Chicago does have one of the highest rates in the nation; but it still pales in comparison to Rio.

Delhi 2020

Delhi is not going to be ready for 2016 Olympics. It should target 2020 Summer Olympics, by then it will be ready as intfrastucture projects will be completed by 2014 and 2018.

Obama wants USA to host the Olympics for the fifth time;

Japan wants Tokyo for the Olympics again;

Spain wants to get the games in Europe again;

South America wants to rescue the concept of "universality" and host the games for the first time.

(((( The games are of Humanity )))) RIO 20!6
