Posted By Staff

Date: August 11th, 2016

greenRio – Olympic athletes have complained of stinging eyes because Rio organizers have ‘over-chlorinated’ the outside swimming pool in a bid to prevent it going green.

They say huge quantities of the chemical have been put into the water next to the diving pool which turned a bizarre murky color overnight.

But now athletes say that the water is damaging their game – and even making them feel nauseous due to the high levels of chlorine used.

Team USA men’s water polo captain Tony Azevedo said he could ‘barely’ open his eyes for the final quarter, after their 6-3 victory over France on Wednesday.  More

Swamp: Water in Olympic diving pool mysteriously turns green – Officials say it is safe

Posted By Staff

Date: August 10th, 2016

greenRIO DE JANEIRO –  Olympic diving chiefs claimed on Wednesday to have solved an embarrassing saga at the Games’ diving arena that turned the competition pool a deep shade of green and left competitors joking that they were leaping into “a swamp.”

FINA said the reason for the discoloration was because the pool’s water tanks “ran out some of the chemicals” necessary for the water treatment process.

While Rio’s organizing committee and FINA, the world governing body for swimming and diving, insisted the water posed no danger to athletes, the divers and independent water experts have been very skeptical.

“If it has gone green and that is because there is not enough disinfectant there would be some kind of implied risk,” Riley told USA TODAY Sports by telephone before the FINA announcement. Riley said his group strongly advised against swimming in green water.  More

cuppingRio – At the start of the Rio Olympics, several members of Team USA arrived to compete with what some people have described as odd-looking marks on their bodies.

Although the red circles on the skin of such athletes as swimmer Michael Phelps and gymnast Alex Naddour may appear accidental, they are actually markers of cupping, a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) technique used for performance improvement and healing.

The ancient practice of cupping has been used for more than 2,000 years in Oriental medicine and traditionally uses a flame to heat a cup that is applied to the skin.  More

The sign appears to ban bathroom users from throwing trash in toilets, vomiting in toilets, standing on top of toilets to squat over the bowl, using a fishing rod to try to catch sea life in the toilets, and standing sideways at a urinal — presumably to defecate.  More

Miami Sprays Dangerous Insecticide That Causes Microcephaly

Date: August 8th, 2016

sprayFlorida – The Zika scare has not only stirred massive media hysteria; it has now unleashed a dangerous campaign to spray a neurotoxic chemical over the city of Miami and surrounding areas.

What damage it will cause remains to be seen, but its use as a means of controlling mosquitoes and stopping Zika should raise serious alarm bells, as its effectiveness has already been discredited and its risks are unacceptable.

The crew and aircraft used in the operation was flown in from Sarasota. The King Air Beechcraft fixed-wing, dual-engine plane is specially equipped with nozzles on the wing to disperse the chemical, called Naled, that is meant to kill adult mosquitoes that could be carrying the Zika virus.

Naled can cause respiratory problems in people who are exposed to it and long term exposure can cause possible neurological problems, according to Cornell University.  More
