  4. Cabral has $ 900 billion in investments to Rio over the next four years According to the governor of Rio de Janeiro, Sergio Cabral, the state has over $ 900 billion in public and private investments mapped and contracted for the next four years. "This is one of the largest portfolio of new investments compared to any state, province or region of the world," the governor said. After highlighting the schedule of investments in the state, and enhance the investments planned for the Rio, the governor took over the airport as a focus of the problem in Rio, for the World Cup 2014. However, the governor emphasized that this can be solved in time. - I do not understand why not lease the airport. The president Dilma (elected president) assures me that will make the necessary investments. I believe her. The question is, if lease, decides to fast. Keeping in pace Infraero, will be a disaster.

Rio de Janeiro is no longer seen as a violent city, to be seen as a big city, a new brand. - Here in New York, more than 200 investors from a list that was limited to 150 came to this lecture. This is not Sergio Cabral. It's Rio de Janeiro. The Rio brand is very strong. She was asleep, abused, damaged. But she is so strong that these four years we managed to win the Olympics, the investment grade. Just do your homework. Finally, Cabrera was asked if, with improved image of the city, intends to run for president in upcoming elections. The governor frown. - I think so good to be in four years' end a cycle of eight years as governor, leaving the Rio at another level, for me, my country is Rio de Janeiro.

  5. UFC Rio has date: August 27 Dana White, UFC president says economic impact to the city ranges from $ 15 million to 50 million dollars The organization of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) announced on Wednesday that the event will again have a Brazilian edition on August 27 at HSBC Arena in Barra da Tijuca, west of Rio de Janeiro. This will be the second time the biggest tournament of mixed martial arts (MMA) brings in the country - the first was in 1998 in the gymnasium of Portuguesa in Sao Paulo. Tickets go on sale in May. The conference, held at the City Palace, was attended by four Brazilian sports idols: Vitor Belfort, Anderson Silva, Aldo Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua and the legendary Royce Gracie. The surprise was due to the announcement that Gracie, 44, can participate. The son of Helio Gracie owns three titles in the UFC, including the first edition of the tournament and is considered a living legend of the sport. The contestants of the event in Rio will not be known in a few months, since they depend on the outcome of fights that lie ahead. "Brazil is where it all began 75 years ago with my father. This here is the crib. What my father created is coming home, "said Gracie, who now fight only on special occasions:" We are talking. Coaching? Always. I'm always ready. " The edition was named Rio UFC Rio, carrying the name of the city rather than a number, as is customary. Mayor Eduardo Paes gave the welcome to the tournament and defended the MMA. "Rio has had problems in the past with what is conventionally called MMA. This here has nothing to do with MMA or disorder. It is a sport with rules and with professionalism. " According to Dana White, UFC President, "the economic impact we bring to the cities ranges from $ 15 million to 50 million dollars. Then, the event is very positive for Rio. "One night of UFC can yield up to 75 million reais. Athletes celebrate the fact the sport's image has improved in the country. Belfort recalled that early in his career faced much prejudice, and Curitiba Anderson Silva is concerned to win the admiration of children. In chorus with Gracie said "do not smoke, do not drink and never fought in the street. And I'm a professional fighter. The struggle teaches self respect and discipline. It's a great sport for kids. " The UFC's return to Brazil is part of an international expansion strategy of the event, which target emerging markets like Brazil, India and China. The visibility of Rio due to the proximity of the World Cup and the Olympic Games helped the Brazil forward pass that list. Over the years, the UFC has evolved with the addition of several rules. Royce Gracie, who has come to be fighting champion four times in one night, remembers fondly the old days. "I do not know if it was more difficult. It was more raw, with no rules. Today, with the rules, became a show. The UFC has turned it all in a show at an event. But it is a struggle. It's for real. " Currently, the UFC has 36 Brazilian athletes - some of the best. Therefore, Belfort provides a win-green and yellow next year. "What I can guarantee is that Brazil will be a champion. And I'm training. "

The next step is to negotiate the categories of Telecommunications and Sports Equipment. - We will work with the original forecast we have, which is U.S. $ 513 million.

Paralympic Logo And while everyone is watching the Olympic logo in 2016, preparations for making the brand of Paralympic competitions are in full swing. The intent of the Rio 2016 is to promote the Paralympic logo at the end of the first half of 2011. And the tendency is to occur the same selection process for choosing the brand. Most likely the Paralympic logo will have its own identity, not only be a slight variant of the symbol of the Olympic Games. But its design should follow the same line of the parent brand of the Olympics 2016. Rogge in Rio If nothing changes, the president of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Jacques Rogge arrived in Rio on the 27th, along with part of the Steering Committee of the entity to follow the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in 2016.

  12. Google Translator Rio will have a new center of policy command Government wants to expand the integration of police for all capital Is forecast to receive 12 seats Cup centers by the end of 2012. In Rio, work began in October and must end in July 2011. The federal government intends to expand the creation of integrated centers of the police command for all Brazilian capitals, according to the National Secretariat of Public Security (SENASP) under the Ministry of Justice. The government had already announced the 12 World Cup host cities will have the centers by the end of 2012. "Effective public safety is the actual integration of Brazilian police. Therefore we have integrated centers by 2012 in 12 capitals host the World Cup. And running at the same time, no precise date to complete, but concurrently for the other 15 capital of the country, integrating the entire Brazilian public security system, "said Maj. Alessandro Aragon, national secretary of Public Safety. According to Aragon, January 2011, it is expected that all terms of reference for the construction of the centers are unsigned. The documents will serve to formalize the state and federal forces will work together. The Ministry of Justice reported that each center will have people of different forces, federal, with the Federal Police, Highway Police, the Brazilian Intelligence Agency (ABIN) and the Armed Forces, the state, with civil and military police, and municipal, with guard civil. The 12 host cities for the finals, which will receive the centers by 2012, are: Rio de Janeiro (RJ), São Paulo (SP), Belo Horizonte (MG), Porto Alegre (RS), Brasilia (DF), Cuiabá (MT ), Curitiba (PR), Fortaleza (CE), Manaus (AM), Natal (RN) Recife (PE) and Salvador (BA). By agreement between the Union and state governments, the state bears the costs of construction, and federal government agencies team. The integration of the police was one of the key aspects for successful police operation in the German set of slums in Rio de Janeiro. For more than two weeks, troops from the PM, teams of civilian police and military personnel work in patrols - see video on the integration side of the police in Rio Action to combat trafficking in Rio is going to be constant after the creation of the center. In the state, according to public works department of the State of Rio de Janeiro (EMOP), construction began in October this year and finish by July 2011. As the EMOP, the Centre Integrated Command and Control (IACC) is the center of Rio and the capital will cost $ 36 million. House, in the same physical space, telemarketing Military Police (190), Service Mobile Emergency Care, the Samu (192), Fire (193), Civil Police, Civil Defense Hall, Municipal Guard, Highway Patrol Federal and CET-Rio. Everything will be divided into a four-story building that will include a room with big screen monitoring, crisis room, private rooms for meetings, intelligence rooms, living quarters, helicopter pad, among others. 'Majority of security' Undersecretary for Public Security, Alessandro Aragon, the centers will represent the "majority of public safety" in the country. "The United States had to go through a crisis in 2001 to join the police. On Sept. 11, teams do not talk to each other. When the twin towers collapsed, a department knew it would come down and could not speak with the other . and killed 86 policemen from the Police Department of New York because there was no communication. (...) That the Americans could do in a crisis. We have the opportunity to learn from that and we have until December 2012, command centers of control, "assesses the undersecretary. Aragon says the integration will only benefit the people. "We control centers sit all security managers, Samu, Fire, PM, guard. For the citizen, no matter who answers to the case of car theft is the PM, the police or the Scouts. He wants to be solution of their problem, that's all. " For the World Cup, the centers should not just focus on the everyday issues of urban violence, but to turn its attention to the situation in the stadiums, hotels, facilities used by Brazilian delegations and events organized by the International Football Federation ( Fifa). The center of Brasilia can centralize the operations related to the World Cup in other states. The exact formatting of integrated centers, however, is still under discussion. Late last month, officials from several states met in technical meeting on the topic in the Ministry of Justice. New meetings and seminars should be conducted in 2011 to handle on the integration of security forces. Cabral assures peace of all slums in Rio 2014 Governor says security before, during and after the 2016 Olympics it is a compromise with the International Olympic Committee A day after making the historic territory of the complex by the German state of Rio de Janeiro, the public safety issue eventually gained prominence in the second seminar on "River City headquarters." The subjects graded for the event held this Monday, in Copacabana, was "Urban Mobility" and "Tourism and Hospitality Infrastructure", but the speakers made sure to leave your testimonials about the latest government actions against parallel power. Governor Sergio Cabral returned to ensure that the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics will be held in peace with all communities in the state already pacified. - I always told members of the International Olympic Committee that we have not only a commitment to an Olympics and Paralympics and give peace to the thousands of visitors. We want to give a legacy of safety before, during and after. And I was engaged in the campaign to regain all the territories occupied by parallel power. I'm absolutely sure that I will fulfill this commitment by 2014 - said Sergio Cabral, who was much applauded during the event sponsored by the newspaper O Globo. The president of the Brazilian Hotel Industry (Abhi), Alvaro Brito, was among the speakers who showed more optimism about the actions of state government. Public safety was a major concern in the industry to achieve major sporting events in the city. - For me, our biggest problem is safety. And the state government is giving an answer pretty. It was a fantastic deal. But I would say this is the first step - he said. Director of logistics for the 2004 Athens warns on spending With the presence of the director of logistics for the 2004 Athens Olympics, Evangelos Angeletopoulos, the seminar also aimed to establish an interaction between the two host cities. The Greek stressed the importance of attention to costs, which tend to be "double expectations." Another point highlighted is that each city has its own needs and difficulties and thus little can be taken advantage of earlier editions of the competition. - Knowledge transfer is not greater than 40%. Typically, the organizing committee receives a lot of data and most of them are crap - Evangelos said. Governor Sergio Cabral praised the work done by the Greeks, but made clear he will not be the prime example followed by Rio de Janeiro. - I've been there a few days and had the opportunity to verify the benefits that the city had. But with all due respect to Athens, we have other cities as well as references from the achievements of the Olympic Games, as Barcelona - the governor said. Location of airports of Rio de Janeiro worries The situation of the airports of Rio de Janeiro, especially in Rio, was also a hot topic on Monday. Two speakers criticized their conditions. President da Cruz, Alvaro Brito, said that these are "road" while the consultant in airport infrastructure Massa Joseph Wilson criticized their access. Governor Sergio Cabral has also recognized to be a big challenge to turn the "airport in a precarious consistent with the timetable of the River." - The project to revitalize Galleon commenced in 2008 and I understand that they will in time not only the Olympics as the World Cup. Now, in terms of access, the Galleon worries - Massa said Joseph Wilson, a consultant in airport infrastructure. Alternatively, he suggested setting up a shipping route along Guanabara Bay. Rio 2016 announces its first two local sponsors in ceremony Chairman of the Organizing Committee, Carlos Arthur Nuzman, says the IOC was impressed by the action of the police in Rio de Janeiro in the war on drugs The Games Organizing Committee in 2016 announced late last Thursday the first two local sponsors for the 2016 Olympics. They are: the bank Bradesco and Bradesco Seguros. The contracts were signed on November 29, a day after the invasion of Vila Cruzeiro. Therefore, the president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee and CO-2016, Nuzman, offered this "achievement" to the governor of Rio de Janeiro, Sergio Cabral Filho. - The actions of the police in Rio also had a great impact on the International Olympic Committee. President Jacques Rogge called me on Wednesday to congratulate the governor for the change he promised a year ago. The legacy of security for Rio de Janeiro has already started - added Nuzman. The announcement of the first sponsors of the Rio 2016 Games took place in an event for executives of major companies in the Brazilian market. The idea was to introduce a different concept of working brands, since the International Olympic Committee does not allow them in the exhibition venues. Even so, the members of CO-2016 showed several examples of successful partners in other Organizing Committees of the Games. The American General Electric Company, for example, is a partner of the IOC since 2003. During this period she has been responsible for part of the stadium lighting. From this, the company can work its mark in advertising, always associated with good image of the Olympic Movement. According to the executive director of CO-RIO, Leonardo Gryner, up 40% of the money invested in the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro can come from private enterprise. The number of sponsors is unlimited, since they do not conflict. The minimum bid to acquire a share of sponsorship of the event is $ 570 million.

What still worries me for the games, really, are the airports. We are far from having terminals with the quality of First World - said, indicating that the city would not have put cruise ships on the coast to reach the total of rooms required for the Games. Bezerra de Mello said at the event sponsored by Bradesco and CCR, the environment is suitable and that many businesses are being analyzed in the region of Porto and Barra, but regrets the lack of areas in the south for new ventures.

For foreigners, Rio is ready for the Olympics in shooting sports Delegations vying World Military Shooting are impressed with the mode structure for the National Shooting Centre Rio de Janeiro has less than a year to receive the World Military Games (16 to July 24, 2011) and less than six years until the 2016 Olympics.

In town for the 45th World Military Shooting Championship, delegations from various countries were impressed with the structure for the sport. - It is something fantastic. We were impressed with the quality of the structure. It is practically a copy of what I saw in Sydney Olympics in 2000. I think it is already prepared. The structure of shooting is great - said Alain Viaene, coach of the Belgian delegation. Sanjeev Rajput, India's competitor in the 300m rifle, agrees that the structure of the National Shooting Centre, in the Olympic Deodoro leaves nothing due to local disputes outside of Brazil, despite making little remarks. - It is a global structure. Every building, every structure is of international standard, and is very beautiful. For the contest is almost ready, but I think you need a little more planning to accommodate spectators and some things for the athletes - said the Indian. The Finn Juha Rutonen, who is also competing in the 300m rifle, was another to say that the structure for sport shooting in Rio de Janeiro is ready to receive any competition. - You are very good. I think this is done. In the 25m pistol, is a bit noisy, but the Olympics size is smaller and may not be a problem.
  15. "the police here are really going to rid the city of the drug gangs but as the saying goes, it's always darkest right before the sun rises and that is what is happening - we'll see some nasty blowups like what happened this week over the next few years but it's for the better." is exactly what is happening
  16. Plz do not exagerate, let's keep a serious discussion here, instead of believe in Twitter rumors or things like that. Yes there is a problem of violence in Rio. For decades violence and the slums didn't have any policy focus at them. For the first time in decades, there is a policy to solve the problem of violence, that is BIG on the city especially the peripheric areas. What is happen now is the response of the gangs trying to cause the chaos and the terror, they dont have especific objectives on this acts, they want to spread the chaos, and doing this pressure the public opinion against the police and politicians.

The point here, is that politicians during last decades let the situation to become extreme like is now, but now finally i believe that we really have a chance to solve this problems on the next years.

Rio police will consider whether to use technology in Carnival 2011 The safety of World Cup games in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016 in Rio will be enhanced with the help of the Virtual Command Center, an intelligence system created by the FBI, the Federal Police of the United States. The Military Police of Rio de Janeiro started testing program and is expected to use it even in the Carnival, the sambodrome, and paths of the main blocks of the city. After a meeting late last Monday (8), Brazilian and American officials considered the positive balance. The head of the Center for Communications and Informatics of the Rio PM, Major Cashew Fabio, explains that the tool created by the Americans is a virtual command center that enables the integration and sharing of information between all security units such as military police, Civil and Municipal Guard.

At football matches, police survey also social networks to anticipate possible attacks between rival groups. Strengthening policing In cases of disputes, the group of policing the area receives a reinforcement of their own battalion of police barracks or neighbors. The first test was considered positive for the leadership of the Rio military police and FBI agents. Major Cashew Fabio said that the events were closed in a shorter period than usual. "Like all spheres are told what is happening, the reinforcement can happen in a more transparent and immediate. This system acts in a preventive way and the ideal is to use it in places of concentrated public and with high levels of fighting and confusion. If the site has cameras monitoring also makes it easier because it's a channel we have to follow, "said Cashew. Prevention of terrorism The Military Police of Rio is still studying whether to use the technology in the New Year's Eve at Copacabana Beach. The cameras of the Coordination of Traffic Engineering and River (CET-Rio) and am very spread out around the neighborhood also assist police in monitoring.

Although the festival concentrates a crowd, the fight and mortality rates are low, "says the Major. Vitual The Command Center was developed in 2002 in the United States, one year after the attack on the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York. One of the coordinators of the system, the FBI agent, Robert Casey explains that the tool is designed to prevent and monitor possible terrorist actions. The system was first used in Honolulu, Hawaii. On occasion, the resort has received many cruises and, fearing an attack, the FBI monitored throughout the region. "In eight years, has used the program in adverse situations like the earthquake in Chile, fighting group of criminals in El Salvador and the Olympic Games in Greece. In all cases, the results were satisfactory. I'm sure the program is well implemented by the Brazilian police, "Casey concluded.

  21. Exclusive: The new site 2016 by Michel in Castellar 01.nov.2010 at 15:56 pm One more unique blog. The Organizing Committee of the Rio 2016 Games has chosen the agency responsible for drafting the new official website of the disputes. After a selection process that began with 26 agencies, eight reached the final. And the winner, chosen in the first half of October, it was: AG2 Publicis Modem, Porto Alegre. The AG2 Publicis has among its clients: General Motors, Arno, L'Oreal, Bradesco, Embraer, Nestle, and Dafra Vulcabras / Azalea. To use the definition contained in their official website: "Publicis Group is the third largest media group in the world leader in digital communication and interactive." Just to be clearer in August, the French group Publicis has acquired the Brazilian agency AG2. Worldwide, the group has 40 offices and about 1,400 employees in Europe, North America and Asia. In Brazil there are about 200 people. Work has already begun and everything should be ready by the Dec. 31, the launch date of the 2016 Games logo. Begins on Monday by Michel in Castellar 31.out.2010 at 17:23 pm After several postponements, finally, the New City subway station - will be partially opened on Monday. Rio de Janeiro Governor Sergio Cabral Filho, and Mayor Eduardo Paes will beat bass drum and bugle to inaugurate what promises to be one of the most modern stations in the city. But at least during the month of November it will work partially. And explain: the station will be open to the public only between 10am and 14pm so that adjustments can be made operational. The good news is that this period will not charge you a ticket. Soon ... the entrance is free. In total, we invested in the New Town Station $ 80 million. The public can count on six of 12 escalators and staircases, six lifts for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility and podotátil floor to help the visually impaired locomotion, and male and female bathrooms. I enjoyed the bathroom, something quite rare in the subway stations. Especially because, when it exists, is always good, but very well hidden!
  22. 'Legadômetro' is launched in Rio de Janeiro The Commission for the Evaluation of Urban Projects for Legacy was established early on Friday by the city of Rio de Janeiro to measure the impact on city projects related to the 2014 World Cup and the Olympics in 2016. The group will work with a tool called "Legadômetro" which will be managed by a committee formed by four municipal departments (Urban, Transport, Environment and Works), noting that examine interventions for their economic, urban, social and environmental. At the ceremony, Mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Eduardo Paes, a summary of municipal actions since winning the election to host the Games, on October 2, 2009, and said that next week will go out to tender for the works of the "Port Wonder "project to revitalize the city's port.
  23. Maurren Maggi is the womens gold winner on the triple jump in Beijing, but i dont think that she would have age to compete in Rio. Orlando Silva: 'It's time for flexibilization " Sports Minister calls for bids in order of resources The Sports Minister Orlando Silva, defended on Tuesday strongly what he called bureaucracy of procedures for public tenders in Brazil. The desire of the politician is to eliminate several steps for the purchase of materials or services by public authorities. - The legal system in Brazil is very lavish in resources. It's amazing how it offers alternative resources, which take forever to resolve certain disputes. And the rules of government procurement is also lavish in a recursive system - said the Minister of Sports. The offensive ministerial in favor of simplifying the process of public purchases occurred, according to Silva, by an excess of zeal. He noted that the shorter the deadline for completing the bidding process, the greater the benefits. Thesis by the Minister of Sport, the process involving the 2014 World Cup and the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games 2016 would be the main beneficiaries, eliminating some risks that contribute to the delay in the works. - A major challenge for Brazil is to simplify rites. This, incidentally, is different from eliminating bidding. When I spoke to (this) was controversial in some cycles, it was because some people interpret this measure as a government proposal to end the bid - said the Minister of Sports. Orlando Silva explained that the phase inversion in the bidding process has helped. He cited, for example, the ability to get the choice of a winning company for the price proposal presented. Not so now: the process begins by examining documentation from competitors in the race. Port takes the best for 2016 Municipality will invest in the construction of ten thousand rooms in the region The city of Rio and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) reached an agreement on the relocation of Barra da Tijuca, Zona Oeste for the port region in the center. Negotiations took place during this first year the state capital has become the Olympic host in 2016 and in the end, the Port will receive a total of 10596 / 4. - Originally, we thought 15 000 would be the ideal number, but the reality of the market in recent months has shown us otherwise. Ten thousand rooms, which will result emquatro thousand or five thousand apartments. It is a great agent to give the boost we need for the port region - said the secretary extraordinary Development, Felipe Garcia. The secretary said the IOC, after authorizing the transfer of four thousand rooms, allowed other three thousand eight hundred and leave the Media Village Bar. With the decision, the total quarters of the Media Village bar fell from 12,281 to 20175 / 4. The remaining three thousand apartments in Port Vila will be referring to the referees (1,840 rooms), which was already planned for the site, in addition of 1,248 rooms, a Media Village and technical officers, first scheduled to be in the Maracana. - This matter (relocation to the Port) is closed. But let's try to build more hotels in Barra, besides those who had promised in the application file, to try to decrease more Media Village - said Garcia. The secretary stressed that ending the dispute with the IOC has capped the first year of preparation for the Games of Rio. And the goal of initiating the buildings that will require more time was reached. Cabral, 'Do not reinvent the wheel' Governor has the challenge of fulfilling promises for 2016 Re-elected Sunday to lead the state for over four years, the governor of Rio de Janeiro, Sergio Cabral Filho has a positive balance of state actions in this first year of preparation for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2016. And aware that people would not forgive such a disappointment similar to that in the Pan American Games Rio 2007, when few improvements have been won for the day to day, particularly in relation to public services, the governor said to make sure that this perception will be another at the end of 2016. Improvements in transportation, environment and safety are expected actions by any citizen. The extent to which the Games will help make them come true? One of the strategies of the State Government at the time of submission, it was just to list the projects that were already aligned with our plan of government. Do not reinvent the wheel, because we knew the works of great relevance for the population of Rio de Janeiro, as the subway extension, upgrading, improving safety and reducing pollution of the bays of Guanabara and Jacarepaguá would also be relevant to the Games. What we did was take this great opportunity to accelerate and facilitate these projects and, in one year, many of them began to be implemented. And if Rio did not win, how would this work? I think they're fine as they are today. As I said earlier, these works would be done anyway, and were on our commitment to government. We made a great effort to adjust our accounts at the outset of breath just to have to invest and facilitate large projects. If the works take place, what are the Games? I can cite many arguments, but in short, the Rio 2016 allowed the channeling of more resources for state, city, speeding up the implementation of some of these projects. The improvement of transport has been addressed as an issue as security. Delays, bad services ... To change this situation, we initiated a series of actions. In the case of rail, the purchase of 120 new trains, of which 30 have already been purchased, the other 94 will be retired. With respect to the subway station have delivered Ipanema / General Osório and we are completing the New Town. Not to mention the works of the subway line 4, which already began in the Barra da Tijuca. Transport were scrapped, the subway would not buy one car for over a decade. And today I guarantee that travelers feel that something has changed for the better. Units Pacification Police (UPP) were one of the main projects used as a propaganda campaign in 2016. They solve the problem? We work tirelessly to do so. When I say that the UPP was a conquest of the River is because, with them, thousands of people are freed from control of trafficking and oppression. Let us bring peace to all communities. But episodes like the invasion of the Intercontinental Hotel (in São Conrado, Aug. 21) by outlaws tarnish the image of the city. Always said he had no illusions and knew the challenge that awaited me in the security area. That episode, however bad it is, has shown that we are on track. It was a bandit on the run from police action. There was the invasion of a hotel by bandits. They fled from a policeman who now works to combat crime and will work even harder. And that stock of preparations for the games you do? A very positive assessment of this past year. During this period, was key to partnership with other levels of government, federal and municipal levels. And this has allowed the state to channel resources to enable projects and actions that are under our responsibility. In a few years, so Rio will be the envy of everyone? I like the city and state will be a few years, with the slums already urbanized, transportation working with much higher quality and efficiency, environmental transformation that will come with cleaning up the bay. Not to mention the growth in tourism, the projection image of Rio abroad. All this helps to make the greatest legacy of these great events: the increased self-esteem of the people. Morumbi outside Rio 2016 And after the 2014 World Cup, Morumbi was also out of the Rio 2016 and now it's official. In the article which I published two days, the president of the Organizing Committee for the Games Rio 2016, Nuzman, was clear: the stadiums of cities chosen for the 2014 World Cup will be used during the Games Rio 2016. - I have some concern (with St. Paul) and I will follow what the World Cup organizing committee does. If he chooses the stadium for Corinthians, will be the Corinthians. I will follow what the president Ricardo Teixeira ('s Cup Organizing Committee 2014) to decide - Nuzman said. In the nomination dossier submitted by the River, the state of Sao Paulo would be the Morumbi. But ... what has happened. The other stadiums set to receive football games Games are: Maracanã (RJ), Mineirão (MG), New Font (BA) and Mané Garrincha (DF). New golf venue Among the articles published during an election year in Rio for the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games in 2016, was one that ended up not comment on the blog: that golf will be played in a new field. The Chairman of the Organizing Committee Rio 2016 Nuzman revealed that golf, which will return to the Games, will get a whole new field, in Barra da Tijuca, Zona Oeste. Thus, both the Itanhanga (Barra da Tijuca) and the Gávea (in São Conrado) lost the race to receive the Olympic disputes. Rugby is still scheduled to be held in San Gennaro, the field of Vasco. Rio 2016 but still awaits the approval of the board of the club to formalize the choice before the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

  25. BRT and expropriations by Michel in Castellar 29.set.2010 at 22:32 pm The city of Rio will get the works for the construction of the express bus (BRT) Transcarioca linking Barra da Tijuca, Zona Oeste, at the Tom Jobim International Airport in the north, even with only 20% of expropriations carried out . In total, the city will need 3,600 expropriate property for the construction of the line. The Secretary Extraordinary River Development, Felipe Garcia, told me that everything happens on schedule. - We still have a good number of eminent domain and will be a matter of negotiation. There's no way (to go back), there is an overriding public interest, which is building a new development and will be made - Rumsfeld said. Garcia added that the works will begin from the portions in which the expropriation is not an annoyance its progress. It is anticipated that the Transcarioca be ready in 2014. Nuzman speech in London to import temporary facilities for basketball President of the COB says that the Games budget will suffer adjustments Against white elephants, temporary installations. Concerned about the legacy of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, the president of the Brazilian Olympic Committee (COB), Carlos Arthur Nuzman, repeating the assertion follows. On Friday, in the "Arena SporTV," the chief recalled that basketball will be played in a temporary block and said you want to import the structure used in the London Olympics in 2012. - The Olympics of Rio will leave a legacy. All the buildings sports at the Pan will be used at the Olympic Games Rio-2016. We'll have the sporting legacy and the legacy of sports facilities. And also the infrastructure. Airports, transportation, security guards and several others. Let's have a committee to consider what legacy we leave. To discuss and receive suggestions. We will have no white elephants. We will have temporary facilities, which is a way to avoid white elephants. The volleyball will use the Maracanazinho Arena da Barra is gymnastics, and basketball will have a temporary installation. Let's try to bring the facilities in London, which are magnificent. Let's calculate the cost of this operation - said. Check more videos in Nuzman SporTV site! Nuzman also said that the Games budget of the River will suffer and that these adjustments will be unveiled by the organizing committee in the coming months. - The budget of the Organizing Committee is equivalent to $ 2.8 billion, but the total budget is $ 12.6 billion. That prior to the entry of rugby and golf. We will have adjustments. We should publicize the coming months - said the president of BOC. Check out other excerpts: Motivated athletes "The athlete felt the victory, winning the Rio de Janeiro. They are proud, honored to participate. They know that this is the moment of the great turn of Brazilian sport. We changed the way we work. We are giving more resources, providing technicians with international experience. Do not think only in 2016. We're also looking at 2020, 2024. We do not want to follow the examples of Spain and Greece, who won medals when they hosted the games, but then fell following the Olympics. " Brazil as Olympic power "Let us create a training center and opened a laboratory for analyzing the body types of each region. We measure the diversity and the benefits it can have. Brazil does not have an Olympic training center. We received $ 200 million between 2004 and 2008. China received U.S. $ 2 billion. Australia, Korea, among others, $ 700 million. We have a gap, but we will overcome. The lab cost nearly $ 14 million and will stay at Maria Lenk Aquatic Park. We have 500 latest equipment. " Basketball and volleyball are examples "(The coach Ruben Magnano) changed the way the selection is present. Regardless of the outcome. This is the model. Volleyball is an example. One sport in Brazil, taking the football, of course, who gave example of how to create a sport . First came the silver medals after the Olympic title and, for over 20 years are the best team in the world. Do not begin by massification. It all begins with results. This attracts others who want to participate. The base begins to be worked arise and the players. " Chance lost to tennis "The Guga (Gustavo Kuerten) is one of the greatest tennis player the world has ever seen. The Confederation (Brazilian Tennis) did not seize the moment. It took the boys, did projects, had no ideas and no one came." Jobs automatic in all sports "We are negotiating policy to guarantee a place in basketball. It gave the host country for the London Olympics in 2012. We are working to prevent this from happening with Brazil."
