Canadian women's hokey team celebration under investigation

The International Olympic Committee is gonna investigate the way the Canada's women hokey players celebrated their gold medal win. On Thursday, Canada won 2-0 over USA and after the awards ceremony the women team members remained to celebrate for more than 1 hour in the arena which was empty excepting the arena staff and media. Several players including also the 18-year-old Marie-Philip Poulin started drinking alcohol and smoking cigars on the ice field. Regarding Poulin's age, in British Columbia the legal drinking age is 19. Following these events, the IOC will investigate the case and will speak to the Canadian Olympic Committee and international hokey federation and require them to take measures. The Canadian officials try to protect their team under the excuse that was an emotional and exciting moment. They said the team did not want to break IOC protocols and should have been more discreet with the entertainment. Banning the team from closing ceremony or to exclude them out of the olympic village would be something too drastic,,,but at least they can keep the medals and that's the most important thing:).

BBC's World's toughest driving test: the Romanian TR-85 tank

BBC seems to like Romania. After the Top Gear producers filmed one of their episode in this East European country, now it was the turn of the hosts from "The World's Toughest Driving Tests" show to try strong sensation by driving not a Ferrari or Aston Martin, instead a Romanian TR-85 tank. The show presenters, Will Mellor and Kirsten O'Brien were sent by BBC to an army facility in Pitesti, Romania, without having any idea about what they will drive. That's also the point of the show: the presenters must be totally unprepared and have to learn from very beginning how to drive the most spectacular vehicles. The surprize was the TR-85, the most powerful and robust Romanian Army's combat tank. TR-85 is a 50 tons monster built-up after an ex-soviet design but fitted with modern equipments. The two BBC people needed one week of training before the real drive. They had to endure temperatures as low as -20 degrees Celsius and participated in genuine firearms before competing against each other. It looks like they were quite impressed.

With just 8 laps to go, Kramer was leading the race and had enough time to drink a cup of coffie or to talk with friends in terms of skating; but then the coach Gerard Kemkers pointed Sven on the inner lane when he should have switched to the outer one.

Furthermore Kramer's frustration is very understandable regarding the fact that he would have established a new Olympic record with a time of 12:54:50.

Following Sven disqualification, the Lee Seung-Hoon from Korea claimed the gold and the Russia's Ivan Skobrev was promoted for silver.

Among them also the Romanian woman Violeta Stramaturaru who got shortly unconscious after hitting her head and later the team decided to pull her out of contest. Whlistler Sliding Center is the world's fastest circuit built on the idea to have more spectacular races.

The 415000 pounds Necker Nymph submersible plane is capable so far to dive deep to about 50 meters but the company hopes in the future the vehicle will reach depths of 12 km.

Unlike normal submarines which use ballast to sink, the Nymph uses downward pressure on its wings to navigate at various levels through the water and moreover the passengers will experience a 360-degrees view from the open cockpit. Furthermore the luxury vehicle is fitted with fighter-jet technology and can be maneuvered by a joystick. The inauguration event is gonna happen on 20 February 2010 when 2 passengers and a pilot will dive the Virgin's plane from land or boat.
The three-person Necker Nymph is mainly assigned for wealthy people who want to explore the Atlantic waters around the Necker Island in the Carribean Sea. The normal price is $25000 a week but there are some other expensive conditions: the vacationer can fly the Nymph only after booking also a $88000 place on Branson's 105-foot yacht, Necker Belle. In total the Necker Island experience can reach as high as $400000 a week.
Virgin's Necker Nymph was designed and manufactured by Hawkes Ocean Technology - a San Francisco based company.
