  Basketball stars protected


  Fans of Yao Ming hoping to catch a glimpse of their idol entering or leaving the Olympic basketball venue should get ready to be disappointed, as a senior security official said yesterday that the giant center will be kept well away from the crowds when he is not on court。

  Zhou Bing, deputy director of the Wukesong Indoor Stadium, which will host the basketball competitions, said four separate entrances will be used for spectators, press, athletes and officials。

  A police cordon(警戒线) will be set up several hundred meters from the athletes’ entrance to stop fans getting too close, Zhou told reporters yesterday, during a tour of the stadium。

  "If fans want to see Yao Ming or any of the other NBA superstars, they will have to wait until they are on court," he said。

  Cao Dongxiang, a senior officer with Beijing’s public security bureau, who is in charge of Olympic venue security, said that of the 28 sports being contested at this summer’s Games, just basketball and football have been given the highest security risk rating。

  These are known for attracting large numbers of passionate fans and will feature lots of big-name players, he said。

  During the Games, a total of 1,500 paramilitary and regular police, professional security guards and Olympic volunteers will patrol a 310,000-sq-m security zone, encompassing the basketball stadium and three nearby baseball fields, Zhou said。

  As well as the people on the ground, about 600 surveillance cameras will be used in the zone, and an infrared security system has been installed along the perimeter fence to detect intruders, he said。

   As another way to showcase China’s wonderful culture, one of the most important Olympic preparations being made has to do with FOOD. Many hotels in Beijing have been collecting data about favorite dishes of the heads of state, politicians and IOC officials.
Specialized kitchens have been created for some heads of state to provide western dishes prepared by their personal chefs. But in addition several Beijing hotels are launching new Chinese dishes, because they have discovered many foreign heads of state truly enjoy authentic Chinese dishes.
  • French President Sarkozy favorite Chinese dish: Fried Wonton dumplings
  • British Prime Minister Brown prefers: Pineapple Chicken
  • President George W. Bush enjoys: Beijing Roast Duck, Shrimp with Spicy Salt and Beijing Mutton Chops
  Interesting facts and comments:

  There are no accidents。


  One meets its destiny on the road he takes to avoid it


  Your mind is like this water, my friend , when it is agitated ,it becomes difficult to see ,but if you allow it to settle , the answer becomes clear。


  Quit don’t quit。 Noodles don’t noodles。


  There is a saying,

  Yesterday is history

  Tomorrow is a mystery

  But today is a gift

  That is why it’s called the present (the gift)
