Oscar Pistorius and an Olympic dream - Run, baby, run

Friday, February 15, 2008

Oscar Pistorius is one of the most gifted disabled athletes ever. He runs and competes at the highest level. Even against abled body athletes. He has no legs, but takes on the 'leggies' in their own game.

He runs on blades made just for him - the Blade Runner. And he ran so fast they called these blades “cheetah” blades. He was as fast as a cheetah on the hunt. But now they are saying that he can't compete at the Olympics.

He is appealing this decision and it will be his last chance to try and make it to Beijing. More on www.angryafrican.wordpress.com.

Olympic Games

Saturday, February 9, 2008

This is our first news, and to tell you the truth, is the strangest one! Take a look:

The Beijing Meteorological Bureau, instructed to ensure the roofless Bird's Nest stadium stays dry on the opening of the Olympic Games, say that experiments to prevent light precipitation from occurring have worked using two methods.
Clouds below freezing were sprayed with a liquid nitrogen-based coolant that breaks droplets up into smaller sizes; those above freezing received silver iodide to produce a cloud-suppressing downdraft by speeding the process of droplet coalescence.
The opposite effect may be attempted to force rain to fall before it gets to the Olympics. A pre-Games highlight involving the torch being taken to Mount Everest's top is also being prepared by the bureau, promising "very detailed" wind reports.
