I have moved back to Ajijic, Mexico with my family, ostensibly to retire from active business development. I don't think this change should reduce me to silence relative to what I am thinking about the world of business and human interchange. I am not satiated by Facebook or Twitter posting, I want to be able to develop ideas and themes and perhaps exchange them, debate them in a format somewhat privately. So, I will do that, here...
Luger Dies In Practice Run at Olympics
A week ago, this was reported about the Whistler Olympic venue for luge in the Globe and Mail "Holcomb has since claimed that the course was designed backward, with tighter turns near the bottom where sleds max-out the speed. And American luger Tony Benshoof told NBC: "When I first got on this track, I thought that somebody was going to kill themselves." Knowing this, why didn't the VANOC organizing committee look even closer at the track? They made changes some time ago regarding the safety of the course, it is a disaster that should never have happened. That they didn't protect the sliders from the posts that he hit is criminal... the NASCAR people, the NHL and countless others have made similar changes to dangerous intersections between sports people and posts!
