...Atlanta: For Fun and Adventure Winfred D. Walker ENG 121 English Composition I Instructor: Amy Erickson 29 April 2013 Traveling is one of my favorite things to do. I have visited many places throughout the United States, however, none are as exciting as Atlanta, Georgia. In Atlanta, there are many places to go and sights to see. For example, Six Flags over Georgia, Stone Mountain Park, and the Atlanta Braves Stadium, are all in or near the city of Atlanta. Six Flags Over Georgia is the largest regional theme park in the Southeast. Six Flags boasts more than 40 rides and attractions. With 11 roller coasters, 3 children's areas, 3 water rides, award-winning shows and numerous other thrill rides, a day can be spent making memories to last a lifetime. The Ninja, is my favorite. The Ninja goes up and down steep hills and even loops upside down. During the summer months, you can splash around in Skull Island, the park's huge interactive water play structure featuring dozens of water slides. My favorite water ride is Thunder River. Last year, I was lucky enough to get caught under the cool splash of the big waterfall. In October, Six Flags is transformed into a haunted theme park for Fright Fest. Halloween shows, roaming zombies and terrifying ride makeovers make Fright Fest the best Halloween experience in Atlanta! Six Flags also has water rides available to keep people cool. Six Flags also has games to play and many souvenir shops. As for the sweets, the funnel......

The groups of members consist of 105 individuals who are politicians, diplomats, sport officials, and businessmen. These members make decisions on what direction the Olympics will be headed in the future. Many developed countries want to host the Olympics for their economic development in the country. During the process many different countries start biding among each other to host the big event. It becomes a contest on who can impress the IOC members. The IOC votes to determine the best location to host the Olympic games with the intension of making it the best competition for the athletes, and the best experience for the spectators. It is only held every 4 years alternating every 2 years in between summer and winter games. The individuals that are part of the IOC are supposed to represent IOC in their designated country, and promote the Olympic spirit. With the bidding process being so competitive sometimes there are lines that people cross to win the bid, or get that one extra vote to put you aahead of another competitor.

Olympics - Overhyped, say, the Olympics. London (present day, 2014) – Two years back London spent a whopping $15 billion in order to host the Olympic Games. These days, the Olympic complex is full of hustle and bustle with shopping malls carved out of the structures in the complex; the quarters that hosted the athletes have been converted into residential flats and condos. Athens (present day, 2014) – In contrast the city which hosted mankind’s first Olympics is still symbolically regretting the $15 billion investment that it made in 2004 to host the games for the second time. There, the main complex stands like a forlorn structure, the buildings are derelict and in a state of disrepair while the landscape is depressing, to say the least. Athens symbolizes something which every nation should be wary of – what after the Olympics? During the games and right after it, things look promising and everyone is happy ; hop on to a time machine and go 10-15 years ahead, things might well be pathetic, to say the least. Athens hastened their decision on their investment and the opportunity to present Athens and Greece as a global sports destination. Of course we couldn’t have predicted the crushing impact of the global recession on the Greek economy that followed three years hence. As China hosted the games four years later, Athens was reeling under a huge $800 million bill to maintain its magnificence which was a spectacle four years back. The government often says that the Olympics would bring......

Risk Management of London 2012 Olympics

...INTRODUCTION Olympics are mega-global event that attracts the attention worldwide with billions of audience watching on television, while millions flock to events as spectators. The media embraces the opportunity of covering every inch of the games. This kind of interest is what organisers face with no room for error in relation to external attacks or system failures of the event although risks are bound to occur to any project or program as in the case of Olympics. These risks may occur with a positive impact to the organisers though they dread to have negative risks, which causes ripple effect to the project. (Taylor, 2006) Getting everything right from the opening ceremony to closing ceremony, games schedules against venues, calls for a proper risk assessment to avoid any criticism. However, risks are such uncertain occurrences of events or condition to anticipate from the moment of the initial planning stages of bidding to host the Olympics Games. (Bartlett, 2004) 1.1 RISK HISTORY IN OLYMPICS (BACKGROUND) In 1972 Summer Olympics, Germany was the host nation of the games but unfortunately, terrorists struck and caused death to athletes. (Toohey and Veal, 2007) Figure 1: Source: The Sun publication Unlike the Munich massacre that involved the killing of athletes, a pipe bomb detonated at the Olympic village in Centennial Park in Atlanta, America-killing one woman and injuring over hundred people (Hails, 2008).

The Sochi Olympics: Castles in the Sand

...The Sochi Olympics: Castles in the Sand “Castles in the Sand” is an article written by The Economist, a British publication. This article, published on July 13, 2013, argues that in many ways Sochi is an odd choice for the winter games and there is a lot of corruption. The Sochi Olympics is a gigantic construction site where 70,000 workers from every corner of the old Soviet Union dig, lift, pull and churn day and night. I would like to talk about few points about this article, my first point is location, second corruption, and lastly cost. Sochi Olympics was a bad choice of location, I agree with The Economist view, the International Olympic Committee should bring people to another safer place. According to The Economist Sochi an odd choice for the winter games. The place, for the Sochi Olympics game is close to the black sea this is an environment contaminated, this environment can sicken to the people. “Sochi is also worrying”, because to the north Caucasus, a predominantly Muslim part of Russia, had a civil conflict for two decades ago. Sochi is becoming the capital of the Caucasus, former Turkic poorest province, Olympics game should be removed to other place, north Caucasus does not include a nationwide security operation to protect the venue against attack, also the Sochi game need more security, to protect the life of people.

...The modern Olympic Games (French: Jeux olympiques[1]) are the leading international sporting event featuring summer and winter sports competitions in which thousands of athletes from around the world participate in a variety of competitions. The Olympic Games are considered to be the world's foremost sports competition with more than 200 nations participating.[2] The Olympic Games are held every four years, with theSummer and Winter Games alternating by occurring every four years but two years apart. Their creation was inspired by the ancient Olympic Games, which were held in Olympia, Greece, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. Baron Pierre de Coubertin founded the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 1894. The IOC is the governing body of the Olympic Movement, with the Olympic Charter defining its structure and authority. The evolution of the Olympic Movement during the 20th and 21st centuries has resulted in several changes to the Olympic Games. Some of these adjustments include the creation of the Winter Olympic Games for ice and winter sports, the Paralympic Games for athletes with a disability, and the Youth Olympic Games for teenage athletes. The IOC has had to adapt to a variety of economic, political, and technological advancements. As a result, the Olympics has shifted away from pure amateurism, as envisioned by Coubertin, to allowing participation ofprofessional athletes. The growing importance of mass media created the issue of corporate......

2020 Olympic Proposal in Miami, Fl

...Miami 2020: Olympic Proposal Prepared for: International Olympic Committee 1 Olympic Plaza Colorado Springs, CO 80909-5708 Prepared by: Andrew Neely, Matthew Ori, David Schofield University of Florida Gainesville, FL 32611 April 21, 2010 Executive Summary The following is our proposal to the International Olympic Committee recommending Miami, Florida to host the 2020 Summer Olympic Games. Our team recommends Miami because of the diversity, means of safety, the existing infrastructure, and financing opportunities that Miami has to offer. Our team has found through extensive research of past Olympic Games and host cities that these are the four key areas of focus. The Olympic Games bring together people from all around the world and all the different types of people blend together to enjoy something great for two weeks every four years. Similarly, Miami does the same thing just on an everyday basis. Miami is home to people from all over the world and from all different backgrounds. The diversity in Miami has been researched and will be used as an asset to the Olympic Games. The city is already multi-linguistic which will be a major help in relieving stress when it comes to travel for the participants. Keeping this diverse group of people safe will be an issue Miami will face. The safety of the participants and fans is arguably the most important aspect the host city needs to focus on. The Miami area has been recently cutting down on crime and will continue......

Religions of Atlanta

...Review of Religions of Atlanta – Religious Diversity in the Centennial Olympic City This nonfiction book was edited by Gary Laderman, a professor of theology at Emory University. Each chapter is written by a different author or authors. The book was published in 1996 by Scholars Press in Atlanta, Georgia. The book is a composition of essays by various authors on the history, growth and impact of the selected religions present in the city of Atlanta at the time of publication in 1996. The introduction to the book was written by the editor, Gary Laderman, and includes a well written and interesting historical perspective on the origins of the city of Atlanta and the initial growth of a few of the religions present in the population from the beginning. Laderman also touches briefly on the history of African Americans and the civil rights movement in the area and mentions more than once that Atlanta was known over the early years as the “the city too busy to hate”. (Laderman 1996). He feels that this general attitude is what helped develop the face of the religious communities of Atlanta today. Laderman then introduces the twenty one essays which follow in the book as providing a broad and diverse perspective on some, not all, of the religious communities that make up Atlanta and the area around Atlanta. He states that “Instead of providing readers with authoritative account of each community, the contributors explore some of the concerns, commitments, and......

...Some of the measures LOCOG has taken to make the London Olympics sustainable include the creation of the Olympic Park on once-contaminated industrial land in east London's Lea Valley, the recycling of over 98 percent of waste during construction and the commitment to do the same in the demolition phase. Steiner listed LOCOG's accomplishments on a walk through Olympic Park. "London's clean-up of an old industrial site; the restoration of flows and habitat on the River Lea; the greening of supply chains; the low energy linked with the design and construction of the stadium, including utilizing old gas pipes for the facility's Olympic ring; and the use of temporary structures to reduce emissions are among the actions that can assist in inspiring the organizers of the Rio 2016 games and beyond," he said. This is the first time that a host city has committed to measure its carbon footprint over the entire term of the Olympic Games from construction to the finish line. UK Secretary of State for Environment Food and Rural Affairs Caroline Spelman said, "We are committed to building a future for everyone where the natural environment is not just protected, but valued as a national asset." "We are delighted to have set new standards in sustainable development, and to showcase the expertise and ingenuity of British companies in delivering a green Olympics so warmly welcomed by Mr. Steiner," she said. | Secretary Caroline Spelman, left, and other dignitaries introduce the One......
