American swimmers Allison Schmitt and Michael Phelps are seen here in the restaurant of the Athletes Village. At the event’s peak, the venue will prepare 60,000 meals each day. Phelps’ diet has received headlines in the past, clocking in at 12,000 calories a day in 2008.

It’s two days to go until the opening ceremonies, but the football competitions for the 2016 Summer Olympics have begun in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Meanwhile, athletes are arriving to the Olympic Village, which has been one of the many lightning rods of controversy for the event.

Wednesday includes six women’s football match-ups, between Sweden and South Africa, Canada and Australia, Brazil and China, Zimbabwe and Germany, United States and New Zealand, France and Colombia. Canada’s forward Janine Beckie scored a goal just 20 seconds into the game, the quickest in Olympic history. The team beat Australia 2-0.

The men face off Thursday with Iraq vs Denmark, Honduras vs Algeria, Brazil vs South Africa, Mexico vs Germany, Portugal vs Argentina, Sweden vs Colombia, Fiji vs South Korea, and Nigeria vs Japan.

Many athletes are arriving in Rio, for the 2016 Summer Olympics. Teams are welcomed with ceremonies, the India, Bahama, Burkina Faso, Gambia and Norway delegations receiving their a 45-minute welcome Wednesday. While members of the US swim team have been photographed in the Athletes Village restaurant, recent reports suggest that Team USA men’s basketball will be staying in a luxury cruise ship, docked off the Port of Rio. Canadian tennis player Daniel Nestor has suggested the village lacks hot water. Members of the Australian team had their three laptops stolen last week, during a building evacuation due to a nearby fire.

In a televised announcement, the vice-president of Ecuador, Jorge Glas said that no tsunami warning but are mobilising people for fear one and decreed a state of emergency to six provinces.

Ricardo Peñaherrera, on National Emergency Managment, said that more than 200 people lost their lives in Manabi. About 10,000 soldiers and 4,600 police officers came to the rescue of the civilians.

A CNN affiliate reported that firefighters from the Colombian capital Bogotá rescued him. Today, Ecuadorean president Rafael Correa said that rebuilding the nation would require billions of dollars which would hamper their economy.

Tuesday, April 12, 2016

On Thursday, an article in newspaper El Espectador of Bogotá, Colombia accused the current mayor of Bogotá, Enrique Peñalosa, of falsely claiming to have completed a PhD degree in Public Administration at the University of Paris.

According to the report by Juana Afanador and Carlos Carrillo, the library of the University of Paris II does not have a doctoral thesis written by Enrique Peñalosa. In response to the article Peñalosa quickly said he never claimed he held a PhD degree and that a communication error with his political campaign team led them to include such claim in the political advertisements of his campaign for Mayor of Bogota. He said he actually took a DESS (Diploma of Advanced Studies((fr))) in Public Administration from the University of Paris II which some people might have interpreted as a Doctorate.

The reporters also identified two books written by the political leader which include a biography where he clearly states he holds a Doctorate in Public Administration from the University of Paris. Additionally, Brazilian newspaper O Globo quoted Mr Peñalosa in September: “I was born in Washington DC, am 60 and gave up US citizenship at 21. I am married with two children. I graduated as an economist and historian with a doctorate in Paris.”((pt))
