Problems, problems as the games approach. Hopefully the naysayers will be proved wrong and the Olympics with be a success. Smile

Quote:The Rio Olympics haven’t even kicked off yet and there’s already a sense that they’re going to be a massive disaster. Things have gone far beyond the now-standard stories of Olympic village construction snafus into serious health and safety concerns. After a number of muggings and the entire security apparatus for the games being replaced last second, a segment of the internet has already started referring to the event as ‘The Apocalympics.’

Another worrisome nickname: Guanabara Bay, where many Olympic water competitions are set to take place, is being called ‘The Toilet Bowl of Rio.’ A number of large news outlets have done exposés on the situation, including the country’s own press. A few days ago, they noted a storm drain still discharging feces directly into the bay a mere 250 feet from the Olympic Flame pavilion. http://uproxx.com/sports/olympics-water-...ove-water/

Zika virus

Quote:Zika is a mosquito-borne virus that makes about one in five infected people sick with rash, fever, joint pain, or pinkeye and has been linked to the birth defect microcephaly, a neurological condition in which a newborn child’s head is significantly smaller than normal. Zika can cause the muscle-weakening disease Guillain-Barré syndrome in adults. http://www.zika-news.com/link.php?url=ht...ign=buffer
