LOS ANGELES - The forecast for the upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing: Cold with a 100 percent chance of fake snow. This year’s highly anticipated Winter games are actually going to be the first time in Olympic history where athletes will compete on 100% artificial snow.More than 100 snow generators and 300 snow-making guns will work to cover ski slopes. Many athletes are concerned about the new reality. Many top Nordic skiers and biathletes say crashes on artificial snow are becoming more common as climate change reduces the availability of natural snow, forcing racers to compete on tracks with the manmade version.

NO power cuts on Wednesday (12); Minister Lokuge alleges conspiracy over recent events
COLOMBO (News 1st); Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Power on Wednesday (12) afternoon announced that there will be no power cuts during the day.However, on Tuesday (11) even though the Ministry announced that there will be no power cuts, many areas were left in darkness following a breakdown at a private plant at the Kelanitissa Power Plant premises.Additional Secretary to the Ministry of Power Sugath Dharmakeerthi told News 1st that the breakdown is being rectified and therefore, there will be an uninterrupted supply of power.On Wednesday (12), given these unannounced power cuts, activists filed a complaint with the Human Rights Commission noting that these power cuts are posing serious issues to the people.However, Minister of Power Gamini Lokuge alleges that these events could be the result of some form of conspiracy.Why is Sri Lanka facing an electricity crisis?Sri Lanka’s Forex Crisis is a main reason for the electricity crisis because the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation is seeking dollar payments from the Ceylon Electricity Board for fuel provided for electricity generation.Concessions granted to consumers by the CEB have resulted in low revenue, which is another reason for the crisis.In addition, one generator at the Norochcholai Power Plant is not acting, posing an issue in electricity generation for the country.Furthermore, a considerable drop in rainfall in areas where reservoirs are situated is another reason leading to the electricity crisis.Despite these reasons, especially that Sri Lanka is receiving low rainfall, Sri Lankan authorities are releasing water from the Maussakele reservoir citing repairs.
