Study forecasts Olympics windfall

first_imgEconomic Research Associates conducted its study for free at the request of the SCCOG. It also is the firm that has determined the 1984 Olympics generated more than $3.3 billion for Los Angeles’ economy. “The estimates are preliminary, conservative and do not presume the huge multiplier ratios for induced economic impacts,” said David A. Wilcox, author of the study and financial advisor to several Olympic Games. Still, some economists have questioned whether such forecasts are accurate. In an article for the Industrial Geographer, Indiana State University economics professor Jeffrey G. Owen found no studies that show significant economic improvements as the result of recent Olympic Games or other major sporting events. After-the-games reviews “have consistently found no evidence of positive economic impacts from mega-sporting events even remotely approaching the estimates in economic impact studies,” Owen wrote. But Sanders said Los Angeles is different because the region already has 30 of the 36 venues needed for the games and does not need to embark on a massive construction campaign. Los Angeles has hosted the Olympics twice before – 1932 and 1984. The committee also intends to fund the games with private donations. “We do not want public money, we do not seek public money and we do not expect public money,” Sanders told the City Council on Friday. If Los Angeles is selected April 14, regional leaders will join with the U.S. Olympic Committee for a two-year campaign to win the bid. Los Angeles would compete against Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro and Prague. The host city will be announced in 2009. kerry.cavanaugh@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “Bringing the games to Los Angeles will mean Olympic gold for every community in our city,” Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said Friday. “We all look forward to the Olympic Games’ tremendous transformative impact on the lives and futures of all Angelenos.” The study commissioned by the Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games estimated the event would attract 877,060 visitors, generate $7.2 billion in revenue and provide 67,825 jobs. The Games would sell 6.23 million tickets – of which 65 percent would likely be purchased by Southern California residents. Direct spending on tickets, hotel rooms, food and souvenirs is estimated to generate about $3.6 billion. And the ripple effect of that spending will generate another $3.6 million, according to Economic Research Associates, which has conducted economic impact analyses for other Olympic games and major sporting events. “This will touch every Angeleno,” said Barry Sanders, chairman of the SCCOG. “It’s something that will change the tourism profile of our great destination city for a long time after the games, not just in the games.” Hosting the 2016 Olympics would lure an estimated 900,000 visitors and infuse the Los Angeles region with at least $7 billion in new revenue, according to a study released Friday. The findings come just two weeks before the U.S. Olympic Committee is scheduled to announce whether it will tap Los Angeles or Chicago as the U.S. site to compete against international cities for the Summer Games. The selection will cap a yearlong campaign in which Los Angeles business and civic leaders have wined and dined USOC members and rolled out a Hollywood-produced commercial touting the region’s attributes. Local officials are still trying to build support for the Olympics, promising youth sports programs, discount tickets and a boost for the regional economy that should last beyond the two-week event. last_img read more

Hirving Lozano lit up the World Cup with his brilliant display against Germany

first_img Mexico defender Eddie Alvraez celebrates Mexico’s stunning win Lozano’s price will skyrocket after the WC— Josip 🎗️ (@jperkovic93) June 17, 2018 MATCH REPORT: Germany 0-1 MexicoAlthough a huge amount of credit should go towards the way Juan Carlos Osario’s men set up, Lozano certainly caught the eye in the win.Lozano is nicknamed ‘Chucky’, apparently because he scares his team-mates by hiding under their beds and jumping out at them.And it’s fair to say there were many different sides to him during Mexico’s famous victory.We were treated to the sublime side for most of the first-half. The winger caused all kinds of problems for Germany and Bayern Munich right-back Joshua Kimmich and the whole German defence in general. Lozano made German right-back Joshua Kimmich’s life very hard all game A completely deserved victory for Mexico, fantastic team effort. Lozano was outstanding as was Javier Hernandez.— Chris Winterburn (@cmwinterburn) June 17, 2018 Mexico pulled off a heroic win over World Cup holders Germany after carving out a 1-0 win over the World Cup holders at the Luzhniki Stadium.Hirving Lozano scored the only goal of the game to put his side top of Group F.center_img 2 2 Mexico played a counter-attack style which worked really well against the high German line but they were failing to punish the four-time winners.Lozano combined very well with former Arsenal player Carlos Vela throughout the first game but they still did not have anything to show for their encouraging play.However, that all changed on 35 minutes when another swift counter caught Joachim Low’s men cold again.The ball was given to Lozano who could have had a go first time, but he had the confidence to cut inside before showing great composure to fire the ball into the net, beating Manuel Neuer at the near post – sending the army of Mexico supporters into a state of ecstasy.Moments later, we saw a more erratic side to Lozano after he fouled Kimmich with a cynical swipe to the legs on the edge of the box.Lozano and Mexico were given a huge let-off as Toni Kroos’ resulting free-kick was tipped onto the bar by Guillermo Ochoa.After the break it seemed as though Mexico were content with preserving their lead so Lozano was less dangerous going forward. Instead he had a few more defensive duties which were good enough to keep the Germans out.However, his fiery attitude was in full flow with a few reckless challenges and Osorio was wise to take him off on 65 minutes. But this did not stop fans on Twitter from singing Lozano’s praises. Hirving Lozano ran the show for #MEX. What a wonderful performance. Chucky is going to be in demand after this World Cup. Great skill, composure and attitude. Big things to come.— Liam Canning (@LiamPaulCanning) June 17, 2018While there are very few clubs who have been outright linked to Lozano, his performance against the Germans will certainly attract the attention of clubs across Europe as he has proved he can do it in the big games.With goals being hard to come by in the 2017/18 season, Chelsea may be interested in acquiring a forward who clearly has some attitude to terrorise defences in the Premier League.Dutch football pundit Kees Jansma claimed Lozano is on for a move to Premier League champions Manchester City. Lozano also refused to rule out a move to Everton last month.It’s clear that whoever signs him have got a potential bright prospect on their hands.talkSPORT will be with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with over 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network.last_img read more

DD Fitness: The Body Coach goes on a binge

first_imgJoe Wicks is a phenomenon! In the past 3 years he has gone from an unknown Instagrammer, into one of the most known names and faces in fitness.His company is rumoured to be turning over £1 million PER MONTH and Joe himself is now worth £15 million.Not bad for 3 years of work. I have been critical of his nutrition advice in the past and his penchant for adding fatty foods with the idea that I will burn more fat.But one thing that you cannot fault with him, is he is on a mission to get people up and moving again, and it is working.A few weeks ago he made a video, where he came out and said that since moving to LA in order to crack the American market, he hasn’t been exercising and has been ‘binging on chocolate and fizzy drinks’.“I’ve been having a right blow out, Obviously I’m in America and there’s loads of fast food. I’ve kind of lost my way. I basically need to get back in the game mentally. I’ve just been lazy. I can’t be bothered to exercise.” This is great, and not in the way the rest of the fitness industry approached it.They saw it as a chance to take a jibe at him and to proclaim that his 90 day SSS plan is ‘unsustainable’ and how he has finally been shown up as the fake he is….. and other such nonsense.His plan is a 90-day plan.So, if he has been doing this for over a year with little to no days off, what’s the issue with him taking some down time while he is in America? None, that’s what.Yes, he is on a pedestal and people look up to and follow what he says and does. But if you think that he eats clean 24/7 and has no days off, you are fooling yourself.You also are setting really bad expectations for your clients. We shouldn’t expect our clients or ourselves to be on plan 100% of the time. 80-90% is fine for most people depending on where they are starting from. Expecting 100% has been shown time and time again to eventually lead to failure. All you have to do is to look at many of the fitness models on Instagram. Once they step off stage and their show is done, it’s like walking into ‘Willy Wonkas Chocolate Factory’.The amount of crap they put away is ridiculous, and yet they will spend most of their time telling their followers that eating clean is the only way to eat.Whether Joe’s message is genuine, or a clever marketing ploy remains to be seen.It could just be a clever way to connect with his followers and to let them know that he is just like them and that everyone can have slip ups. But if you get back on track and follow his plan, you’ll be fine.I only say this because he did pretty much the same video this time last year a week before his book was to be released.The recent video was done a week before the release of his new DVD.So, it could be very clever marketing, or a genuine video letting his fans know that mistakes happen and that you can fix them by getting back on track and exercising and eating well again.His message isn’t fancy, it’s not new or difficult, but it seems to resonate with people.If it gets people to be more active, eat better and end up healthier, it’s alright with me.#TrainSmartMy little Black Dress Challenge starts on November 6th and has has women from all over the country signing up and looking through our new App and Membership site.If you want to join over 30 ladies who have signed up already, click the link below;http://www.rushefitness.ie/little-black-dress-challengeDD Fitness: The Body Coach goes on a binge was last modified: November 4th, 2017 by Emmet RusheShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:binge eatingdietemmet rushefitnessJoe Wicksrushe fitnessweight losslast_img read more

Meulensteen savours ‘feel-good factor’

first_imgFulham boss Rene Meulensteen says his experienced midfielders have helped to bring the ‘feel-good factor’ back to Craven Cottage.Steve Sidwell, 30, Giorgos Karagounis, 36, and Scott Parker, 33, all excelled in the 2-0 win against Aston Villa on Sunday, which ended a run of six straight defeats.Meulensteen said: “What they bring you is experience. These players are well trained.“It is our job to make sure they have the energy to play at this level and it is important you use them in the right jobs for the team. That is what I’ve done.”The victory over Villa, the Whites’ best performance of the season, sparked joyous celebrations in the stands and Meulensteen is eager to see that excitement maintained.He said: “Although we lost against Spurs there was a massive feel-good factor there.“I wanted to make sure we maintained that feel-good factor and back it up with three points, so that the fans and the players know we’re back on track.”See also:Fulham v Aston Villa player ratingsYTo4OntzOjk6IndpZGdldF9pZCI7czoyMDoid3lzaWphLW5sLTEzNTI0NjE4NjkiO3M6NToibGlzdHMiO2E6MTp7aTowO3M6MToiMyI7fXM6MTA6Imxpc3RzX25hbWUiO2E6MTp7aTozO3M6MjI6Ildlc3QgTG9uZG9uIFNwb3J0IGxpc3QiO31zOjEyOiJhdXRvcmVnaXN0ZXIiO3M6MTc6Im5vdF9hdXRvX3JlZ2lzdGVyIjtzOjEyOiJsYWJlbHN3aXRoaW4iO3M6MTM6ImxhYmVsc193aXRoaW4iO3M6Njoic3VibWl0IjtzOjMzOiJTdWJzY3JpYmUgdG8gb3VyIGRhaWx5IG5ld3NsZXR0ZXIiO3M6Nzoic3VjY2VzcyI7czoyODM6IlRoYW5rIHlvdSEgUGxlYXNlIGNoZWNrIHlvdXIgaW5ib3ggaW4gb3JkZXIgdG8gY29uZmlybSB5b3VyIHN1YnNjcmlwdGlvbi4gSWYgeW91IGRvbid0IHNlZSBhbiBlLW1haWwgZnJvbSB1cywgY2hlY2sgeW91ciBzcGFtIGZvbGRlci4gSWYgeW91IHN0aWxsIGhhdmVuJ3QgcmVjZWl2ZWQgYSBjb25maXJtYXRpb24gbWVzc2FnZSwgcGxlYXNlIGUtbWFpbCBmZWVkYmFja0B3ZXN0bG9uZG9uc3BvcnQuY29tIGFuZCB0ZWxsIHVzIHlvdSB3aXNoIHRvIHN1YnNjcmliZSB0byBvdXIgbmV3c2xldHRlci4iO3M6MTI6ImN1c3RvbWZpZWxkcyI7YToxOntzOjU6ImVtYWlsIjthOjE6e3M6NToibGFiZWwiO3M6NToiRW1haWwiO319fQ== Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
