*******olympicgames2.blogspot**** Beijing Olympics opens with outstanding fantastic ceremony Fireworks, athletes and pageantry on a scale never before seen in the Olympics opened the Summer Games in Beijing on Friday. A global TV audience of four billion and 91,000 in the Olympic Stadium witnessed the opening ceremony. 20,000 fireworks torched the sky, fairies floated in a constellation of incandescent beauty and 56 children representing China's ethnic mix paraded the flag of the People's Republic. The eighth day of the eighth month, 2008, Chinese president Hu Jintao sat alongside Jacques Rogge, the president of the International Olympic Committee. 4,000 years of Chinese history was condensed into the mother of all floor shows to mark the opening of the Games of the XXIX Olympiad. This was the choreographed demonstration of might the like of which the Olympic Games has never seen. This was history set to music and dance, every step reminding the assembled world leaders that Beijing stands at the centre of a universe every bit as legitimate as those born of Greece and Rome. Gunpowder, or the burning of medicines in these parts, we were reminded in a series of heady detonations was invented this end of the Silk Road half a millennia ago. Paper, another creation of ancient China, and writing utensils made of bamboo slips dating back to the fifth century BC, featured heavily in a display of artistic hegemony worthy of the great nation China believes herself to be. The Summer Olympics are now officially under way, the cauldron flame has been lighted in a manner that will be talked about for generations, China has a lot of new friends and "The Greatest Show On Earth" lived up to its $100 million expectations inside the incomparable Bird's Nest. What an Opening Ceremony. One World One Dream has just been replaced as the most useful phrase here by How Did They Do That? This Opening Ceremony was billed as the greatest show on Earth, and it quite possibly was. Artistic director Zhang Yimou had the daunting task of incorporating 5,000 years worth of Chinese civilization into one program, and it was done with mind-blowing technology and artistic flair. The stadium itself was the star, its open-roof ring stretching a few stories high above and serving as a projector screen for waterfalls, whales, flying doves, stars, ancient Silk Road travel and much more. Everything about this Opening Ceremony left one breathless and wanting more, and that is what a good Opening Ceremony is supposed to do of course.

New Zealand Auckland Sky Tower Jim Rogers and Paige Parker" "Leading economic expert Jim Rogers traveled to 150 countries over 150,000 miles in three years - follow his adventures here on FentonReport. In this video Jim visits the Auckland Sky Tower. The Sky Tower is an observation and telecommunications tower located on the corner of Victoria and Federal Streets in the Auckland CBD, Auckland City, New Zealand. It is 328 metres (1,076 ft) tall, as measured from ground level to the top of the mast, making it the tallest free-standing structure in the Southern Hemisphere, and the 12th tallest member of the World Federation of Great Towers. Due to its shape and height, especially when compared to the next tallest buildings, it has become an iconic Auckland structure, often used in logos and promotions. The landmark is part of the SKYCITY Auckland casino complex, owned and operated by SKYCITY Entertainment Group. However, the complex was originally built for Harrah's Entertainment. The upper portion of the tower contains two restaurant levels (one, 'Orbit' with revolving seating, turning 360 degrees once every hour ) and one cafe level, as well as two observation decks (including some with sections of glass floor). The tower attracts, on average, 1,450 visitors per day (over 500,000 per year). Glass flooring seen inside one of the observation decks. The tower also features the SkyJump, a 192-metre 'fan descender' jump (an experience between a bungy jump and a base jump) from the observation deck, during which a jumper can reach up to 85 km/h (53 mph). The jump is guide-cable-controlled to prevent jumpers from colliding with the tower in case of gusts. Climbs into the antenna mast portion (300 m/980 ft heights) are also possible for tour groups. As well as for entertainment, the tower is used for telecommunications and broadcasting with the Auckland Peering Exchange (APE) being located on Level 48. Several radio broadcasting companies co-locate transmitters and share antenna systems, while television company Canwest (who ran the TV3 and C4 channels) has secondary transmitters on the tower, their primary one being at Waiatarua. The Sky Tower features prominently on the Auckland skyline at night due to its extensive illumination and SkyCity uses this lighting of the tower in a number of ways for supporting various causes using a number of colours or mix of colours to promote these things, a few examples are: * Blue = Auckland Blues Rugby franchise * Pink = Breast Cancer Awareness Month * Red & Green = 'Kidz First' Childrens Hospital * Red & Gold = Chinese New Year * Blue & Green = Starship Children's Foundation * Orange = Auckland Festival * Green & Purple = The Auckland Cup * Green = St. Patrick's Day * Red = The America's Cup * Green, Red and White = Rally New Zealand * Gold = New Zealand Olympians at the XXIX Olympiad As during the winter months, electricity consumption in New Zealand increases dramatically, and with much of the power reserve in the country depending on the water level of the hydro-lakes, various power-saving schemes are introduced to prevent blackouts. In an effort to promote power saving, SkyCity turned off the tower lighting in Winter 2008, retaining only the flashing red aviation lights. SkyCity is also minimising façade flood lighting across its complex. Simon Jamieson, General Manager SKYCITY Auckland Hotels Group, said: "Like every New Zealander, we are concerned about the country's electricity supply, and we believe it is our responsibility to make this move to assist with the power saving request." The tower was reilluminated on August 4 in time for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Fletcher Construction was the contracted builder for the project while engineering firm Beca Group provided the design management and coordination, structural, geotechnical, civil, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, lighting and fire engineering services. It was designed by Gordon Moller of Craig Craig Moller, and has received a New Zealand Institute of Architects ...

What do Steve Young, Earvin (Magic) Johnson, Drew Bledsoe, David Robinson and Ronnie Lott have in common? They're all professional athletes turned private equity investors. In The Deal's video conversation, former NFL quarterback Young talks about the "entrepreneurial spirit of football," the pressure of following in the footsteps of four-time Super Bowl winner Joe Montana and why quarterbacks make good PE investors. Young's football prowess is legendary. He was named the most valuable player of Super Bowl XXIX in 1995, when he led the San Francisco 49ers to victory. These days, Young is the managing director of Huntsman Gay Global Capital LLC, a Palo Alto, Calif., private equity firm that closed a $1.1 billion private equity fund earlier this year. Far from the stereotypical dumb jock, Young earned a law degree, previously co-founded a PE firm called Sorenson Capital and founded a charity for children called the Forever Young Foundation. Oh, and he's also a talented public speaker, as those of us who attended The Deal Economy 2010 conference in New York last week witnessed. Click here for more on Young's remarks there. Subscribers to The Deal Pipeline may read more about Huntsman Gay here. Watch the video below or download it on iTunes. - Mary Kathleen Flynn
