A simple kinematic model based on superposition of p+p collisions, relativistic geometry and final-state hadronic rescattering is used to calculate various hadronic observables in s(NN)**(1/2) = 200 GeV Au+Au collisions and s(NN)**(1/2) = 5.5 TeV Pb+Pb collisions. The model calculations are compared with experimental results from several s(NN)**(1/2) = 200 GeV Au+Au collision studies. If a short hadronization time is assumed in the model, it is found that this model describes the trends of the
