我与奥运冠军徐莉佳的博客缘

昨晚得知徐莉佳获得了2012英国伦敦夏季奥运帆船赛金牌,非常高兴!作为一个长期参加帆赛激光雷迪尔级的奥运选手,徐莉佳的奥运运气却不是那么好,04年雅典奥运会因为腿部肿瘤,08年北京奥运会也与金牌失之交臂获得了铜牌。如今终于如愿以偿,怎叫人不为她...

Ultra-tight ticket security for Olympic ceremonies

BEIJING (AP) — China has ratcheted up surveillance and security in every phase of the Beijing Olympics — even the tickets.

In a move unprecedented for the Olympics, tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies are embedded with a microchip containing the bearer’s photograph, passport details, addresses, e-mail and telephone numbers.

The intent is to keep potential troublemakers from the 91,000-seat National Stadium as billions watch on TV screens around the world. Along with terrorists, Chinese officials fear protesters might wreck the glitzy ceremonies, unfurling Tibet flags, anti-China banners or even T-shirts adorned with strident messages.

Aside from concerns about privacy and identity theft, the high-tech tickets also threaten chaos at the turnstiles.

Tickets for the Aug. 8 opening ceremony are the most expensive of the games — a top price of $720 — and many are in the hands of dignitaries and friends. Delays could create terrible publicity on opening night.

“They should be concentrating on sniffing out the kinds of dangerous stuff rather than worrying about the identify of the people with the tickets,” said Roger Clarke, an Australian security expert. His Xamax Consultancy in Canberra advises businesses in online security and identity authentication.

“The way in which you recognize an evildoer, somebody who wants to throw a bomb, somebody who wants to unfurl a Tibet flag is not on the basis of their identify,” Clarke added. “It’s the act that they perform and it’s the materials they carry with them.”

China was toughened visa restrictions and increased checks at hotels and entertainment areas — all designed to keep track of foreigners as the games approach. Several large public gatherings have been canceled. Thousands of closed-circuit TV cameras will be deployed in and around the venues. Organizers have acknowledged that some security officials will be dressed in volunteer uniforms. Passengers riding the subway and major bus routes will also undergo strict checks.
