Global sponsors quiet ahead of Beijing Winter Olympics – BBC News

Published

on



BBC analysis shows a dramatic reduction in tweets referring to the Games from the Olympics’ global sponsors – as compared to last year’s Summer Games in Tokyo.

The BBC also approached all 13 Olympic partners for comment on accusations of China’s human rights abuses. None responded directly to the allegations.

The former chief marketing officer for the US Olympic Committee at the Beijing 2008 Olympics, Rick Burton, told the BBC multinationals were “walking a tightrope”.

“I don’t think that any of them as global brands can afford, or are willing, to insult the Chinese government.”

    What good is it for a man to gain the whole world if he loses his soul? What's the point of living a relative truth, hating the Absolute Truth that is Jesus Christ? You don't hate the president, you hate the Truth! They like the lie and are its slaves. Change, there is still time. Where is Al Capone now?

    Don’t watch the closing ceremonies! As an athlete and coach for some 42 years now, I’m proud that I never watched one minute of live action from the genocide Winter Olympic Games in Beijing. I did not want to see which sponsors were there selling their wares under such conditions. I’ve been able to keep up with what’s going on in sport by watching the CBC nightly news and by watching the CBC website on YouTube. The newspaper heading I would love to see would be “CLOSING CEREMONIES IN BEIJING CANCELLED DUE TO LACK OF VIEWERSHIP”…..to the CCP I say: “The whole worlds NOT watching!”

    Complaints about the food inside the "closed loop" have been mounting, with athletes, media and other personnel posting on social media about the lack of quality, variety, or healthy choices at the available restaurants, including the canteen at the Main Media Centre (MMC). One hotel manager even admitted to CNN that the food in one of their own restaurants is “disgusting.” Fresh fruit is hard to find, and no snack items or hot food are allowed to be delivered to guests into the bubble from outside. The only shop in the MMC sells low-quality packaged snacks, a small number of toiletry items, and Chinese beer – and the shelves are often half-empty. Those who were able to visit Beijing before the pandemic have lamented their disappointment about the poor choices available in a city that is famous for its excellent food. Even the much-touted, robot-powered restaurant at the MMC is often overcrowded with people taking videos for social media, and they warn customers that it could take 40 minutes to be served. And despite the robot-powered food delivery system – which lowers plates of food via a wire from purple pods that slide along the ceiling – the rest of the operation still runs in a far less futuristic way, with customers paying in cash or credit card at the till and staff in some sections hand-delivering the trays of lukewarm dumplings that were made by the robots. The robot cocktail bar is often closed, and on several visits, the machines had run out of ingredients, so the staff on site reverted to making the drinks the old-fashioned way. The dinner buffet at the Shangri-La Hotel – which includes good quality Chinese dishes and international options – and the restaurant at the Marco Polo Hotel are among the only places inside the "closed loop" escaping major criticism of their food. But they come at a cost — notably a price tag of more than $60 per head for the Shangri-La buffet.

    There were a few countries boycotting the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics game, based on the excuses of their forged Xingjiang stories, claiming the Xinjiang ISIS members lost their human rights of killing others, while more than 160 courtiers supporting the world humanity unity event.

    Look at all the Wumao posting on this article. The CCP pays them cents per post that is how desperate the CCP is to stiffle criticism. These Olympics will be the least watched gloablly around the world. The people on the mainland will be forced to watch events that they don't really understand just to cheer on the national team.

    Actually, we should talk about human rights.
    As America and UK government did nothing during the COVID pandemic, and killed so many their own people, making so many their own people under risks.
    The American and Uk government are just like Nazi! a huge disrespect for human rights.

    We should talk about this.

    Hanbok is a traditional Korean costume. Correct China's wrong promotional video immediately. Reflect on China, which shows the wrong perception of history at the Olympics. And Taiwan and Hong Kong are independent countries. Don't suppress them anymore.

Cyclone Idai: Flying over flooded Mozambique – BBC News

Published

on



As Mozambique counts the cost of Cyclone Idai, the BBC’s Africa editor Fergal Keane joined a helicopter flight over some of the worst-affected areas.

The pilot pointed towards the east across the expanse of brown water. “We are 15 miles from the sea,” he said, “but it feels as if we are right over it.” He was right. Below us, farmland that had been home to thousands of people had disappeared.

Charities say thousands of people are stranded by catastrophic flooding, clinging to roofs or stuck in trees.

About 300 people are confirmed dead in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, but the toll is expected to rise.

Killer whale hunts and eats great white shark | BBC News

Published

on



A solitary killer whale, or orca, has been filmed hunting and killing a great white shark in an “astonishing” attack off the coast of South Africa.

Scientists said it was “unprecedented” and showed the exceptional predatory skills of killer whales.

Two orcas in particular off South Africa’s coast have been observed before working together to hunt and kill sharks, including great whites.

Dr Alison Towner, a marine biologist from Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa, led the study.

“This caught us off guard,” said shark biologist Dr Towner.
