The Olympics are a celebratory and joyous experience for all amateur athletes who have worked hard to compete on the world stage. Olympic games are significant to all nations around the world.
It is estimated that some four billion people globally will watch at least part of the Sochi Games before the XXII Olympiad comes to a close.
However, even before the start of the world-staged event, a dark cloud seems to be hovering over Russia. Bombings, shootings, laws against public display of homosexual preferences and even the legitimacy of the doping testing facilities in question, have shrouded the games negatively.
The State Department warned Americans of the potential for terrorism at the Sochi Olympics. Large-scale public events such as the Olympics are an attractive target for terrorists, thievery and scams.
Expert John Greenburg discusses the significance of the Olympics and what the Olympics stand for along with expert on terrorism, Dr. Anne Speckhard, who has examined why Russia is being targeted.

SHOW NOTES: What is a Stereotype?"Stereotypes are widely held cultural beliefs that are resistant to change."
(Block, Koch, Liberman, Merriweather, & Roberson, 2011)
What is Stereotype Threat?
“The phenomenon known as “stereotype threat.” Members of groups believed to be academically inferior — African-American and Latino students enrolled in college, or female students in math and science courses — score much lower on tests when reminded beforehand of their race or gender. […] found that black students performed comparably with white students when told that the test they were taking was “a laboratory problem-solving task.” Black students scored much lower, however, when they were instructed that the test was meant to measure their intellectual ability. In effect, the prospect of social evaluation suppressed these students’ intelligence.”
Minorities aren’t the only ones vulnerable to stereotype threat. We all are. A group of people notably confident about their mathematical abilities — white male math and engineering majors who received high scores on the math portion of the SAT — did worse on a math test when told that the experiment was intended to investigate “why Asians appear to outperform other students on tests of math ability.” (PAUL, 2012)
Does it exist?
