Beijing National Stadium, colloquially as the Bird's Nest, is a stadium in Beijing, China. The stadium was designed for use throughout the 2008 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. Located in the Olympic Green, the $423 million stadium is the world's largest steel structure. The design was awarded to a submission from the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron in April 2003, after a bidding process that included 13 final submissions. The design, which originated from the study of Chinese ceramics, implemented steel beams in order to hide supports for the retractable roof; giving the stadium the appearance of a "Bird's nest". Ai Weiwei, the artistic consultant, played a critical role in pushing the design to have unique Chinese characteristics. The retractable roof was later removed from the design after inspiring the stadium's most recognizable aspect. Ground was broken in December 2003 and the stadium officially opened in June 2008.

The Beijing National Aquatics Centre, also known as the Water Cube (or abbreviated [H2O]3 ), is an aquatics centre that was built alongside Beijing National Stadium in the Olympic Green for the 2008 Summer Olympics. Beijing National Stadium can seat as many as 91,000 spectators during the Olympics. The capacity will then be reduced to 80,000 after the Games. It has replaced the original intended venue of the Guangdong Olympic Stadium. The stadium is 330 metres long by 220 metres wide, and is 69.2 metres tall. The stadium uses 258,000 square metres of space and has a usable area of 204,000 square metres. It was built with 36 km of unwrapped steel, with a combined weight of 45,000 tonnes. The stadium has some 11,000 square metres of underground rooms with waterproof walls. The stadium will cost up to 3.5 billionyuan (≈423 million USD).

Follow us on TWITTER: http://twitter.com/cnforbiddennews Like us on FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/chinaforbiddennews The 2008 Beijing Olympics Games helped win eyeballs for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). However, a set of photos circulating on the internet showed most of these Olympic venues are now deserted and left with no maintenance. Commentators say, the CCP used the 2008 Beijing Olympics as vanity projects to glorify itself, but brought a nightmare to the Chinese people in reality. The "Bird's Nest", designed by Chinese renowned artist Ai Weiwei, was a symbol of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In contrast to being the sensation of the year, it is now idle. Tourists only take photos outside the construction, giving up an expensive interior visit that charges 50 yuan per person. A total of 37 gorgeous stadiums were built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, with estimated costs of 290 billion yuan. The figure is four times that of this year's London Olympics. Early in March, Ai Weiwei told Japanese media that he felt regret over designing the "Bird's Nest". The 2008 Beijing Olympics is a CCP's propaganda tool, "a stage for glorifying itself ", said Ai Weiwei. Yang Weidong, Beijing-based independent filmmaker, said that the 2008 Games brought nothing more than a nightmare to the Chinese people. Yang Weidong: "How many gold medals won have nothing to do with ordinary citizens who just hope for a stable life. Whose money did you splash out (for the Games)? They were not of your CCP, but the hard-earned money of citizens, the taxes we've paid." Today, the majority of the 2008 Olympics venues are idle. The Water Cube was converted into a public water park, charging 200 yuan per ticket. The contractor planned to make sales of 3,000 tickets daily, but would not disclose actual sales figures. You don't need to line up for a water slide, he said. Canoe Stadiums, beach volleyball courts, bicycle motocross venues, baseball stadiums, and other venues have all been deserted and ignored for maintenance since the Closing Ceremony. Chinese netizens commented, "The feast was held for the organizers and participants to take whatever they wanted." "The venues still need maintenance money even if left for public use, so it would be better locked and closed to security expenditure." Gong Shengli, China's financial think-tank researcher, said all international events held by CCP authorities were vanity projects for attracting eyeballs but offered nothing for citizens. Gong Shengli: "Over past 62 years, China's (CCP) regime has spent money earned by the civilians, but has deprived them of the power to have final say on it. That is unprecedented in all countries with the rule of law in this world." Gong Shengli attributes the Olympics venues' idleness to lack of legal continuity in China's Constitution. One generation of the CCP leadership only care their own tenures. Gong Shengli: "The (CCP's) Constitution basically equals zero. It means that in China, all public issues handlings and role of legal process are decided by the incumbent leaders. And their successors largely will not involved in the decisions made by the predecessors." Reportedly, 31.8 billion yuan were thrown into the construction of 2008 Olympic venues, including working capital. Another 71.3 billion yuan were spent on the environmental cleanup costs. Around 180 billion yuan were spent on road infrastructures. Yang Weidong says that the actual and the subsequent costs were beyond the CCP's consideration, as it aimed to tout its political achievements by holding the best Olympic Games in the world. Yang Weidong: "How long is such a iconic building to be built for use? At least 100 years, OK, let's say it's only 60 years. Then how much maintenance costs would there be in those 60 years? The taxes we paid have been spent on these maintenance costs, who ever asked our permission beforehand?" Gong Shengli says, it is thought provoking that such huge image projects only dismissed former Beijing Vice Mayor Liu Zhihua. There has since never been any news reported on the CCP official corruption linked to the 2008 Olympic Games. On July 21, the heaviest rainstorm in 61 years fell on Beijing. The submerged city suffered ten hours of torrential downpour, caused dozens of deaths and an economic loss of nearly ten billion yuan. The news unleashed a flood of Chinese public criticism on the internet. A netizen asked, "how could a modern international city that spent tens of millions yuan to hold the Olympic Games build such vulnerable ground water drainage works?" 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点 http://www.ShenYunPerformingArts.org/

DAY 4: https://youtu.be/RiXdrsw7JGw To start off; We did all the Vlogs in Dutch, but we also subtitled everything so everybody can understand what we're saying. We have actually been to the Bird's Nest before (in 2015 with our buddy Bram) but never got the chance to actually get inside of the stadium. That's why we have decided to use Day 3 to explore the Olympic Stadium, and the Water Cube! We had an amazing time there, and it was even more beautiful because of all the winter activities. Oh, and yes, I changed the subtitle font to make the reading even easier! Thanks for watching!

Ending; Censored) Show Notes: Due to the Chinese government's censorship laws, the band was forced to censor 'Given Up', 'Remember The Name', 'Welcome', and 'Bleed It Out'. On 'Given Up', Chester just skipped "fuck". On 'Remember The Name', Mike changed "motherfuckers" to "other fellas". On 'Welcome', Mike just skipped the "fuckers" part of "motherfuckers". On 'Bleed It Out', Mike didn't rap the entire line of "going out of my fucking mind" and let the crowd sing it instead. Chester had in ear problems during 'Papercut', signaling to the side of the stage that he couldn't hear correctly. The band took a break after the song to get it fixed, before they started 'Given Up'. On the transition outro of 'Runaway', Mike rapped verse one of 'Wastelands'. Chester sang the first line of the bridge over the outro transition. During the bridge of 'Bleed It Out', Chester conducted a sing-a-long with the crowd. Other Notes: This was Linkin Park's first show in Beijing. The scheduled show in October 2008 was canceled due to Chester being injured. After the show, Joe performed a DJ set at the Boombar. It was billed as the "official Linkin Park after party". The band had to submit a list of songs to the Chinese communist government to be "pre-approved" for the setlist. Included were all songs played on the world tour for The Hunting Party up to this point, even those not in the current setlist. 42 songs total were listed, including 'A Place For My Head', 'Somewhere I Belong', 'A Light That Never Comes', 'With You' and 'Blackout'. 'Keys To The Kingdom', which has not received its live debut yet, was also on the list. There was no LPU Meet & Greet at this show. The Chinese Tour did not have the customary M&Gs, which made it the first tour in LP's band history to not have them since the inception of the LPU. Mercedes Benz (tour sponsor), however, held M&Gs before the shows for their own car buyers, etc to meet the band. Instead, two LPU Meetups events were held in Shenzhen and Shanghai. Despite the band not being confirmed to attend, they showed up and fans were allowed to take a group picture with Linkin Park but not get any autographs. Even at these LPU Meetups events, the Mercedes Benz people went first to meet the band. There was no opening band for the China Tour. http://lplive.net/shows/db/2015/20150726 https://www.facebook.com/Qwerty95k https://twitter.com/Qwerty95k Get the latest news on Linkin Park at their official website: http://linkinpark.com

The Beijing National Aquatics Center, better known as the Water Cube, is an aquatics center that was built alongside Beijing National Stadium in the Olympic Green for the swimming competitions of the 2008 Summer Olympics. Despite its nickname, the building is a cuboid (rectangular box), not a cube. Ground was broken on December 24th, 2003, and the Center was completed and handed over for use on January 28th, 2008. Swimmers at the Water Cube broke 25 world records during the 2008 Olympics. The Water Cube was built with donations from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan compatriot as well as overseas Chinese. It was chosen through public appraisals as one of “China’s ten big new architecture views” by The U.S. magazine "Business Weekly". The iridescent bubble wrapped rectangular box shaped structure won the 2011 National Science & Technology Progress Award, First Class, for its deliberate morphing of molecular science, architecture and phenomenology that can create an airy and misty atmosphere for a personal experience of water leisure.
