Jeff Bridges bowls first pitch at LA Dodgers game, Lebowski
Turns out the Dodgers did make a major acquisition at the trade Oakley Metal Plate deadline: Veteran Replacement Oakley Lenses pitcher .

For at least one game, anyway.

The Oscar-winning actor appeared at Chavez Ravine on Friday to toss out the first pitch, ostensibly to promote his upcoming film The Giver (gotta break through to audiences any way you can these Oakley Juliets days), and decided to deliver Oakley Rx Lenses the ball in the style of perhaps his most famous character, The Dude from The Big Lebowski.
That totes had viral video potential, he must have been thinking and he was right!

Baseball hasn't seen an Oakley Ballistic Sunglasses underhanded pitcher in quite a while, and if he can work on not running off the mound during his delivery, perhaps Bridges can disorient hitters Oakley Jawbone Sale enough that he'll have a real future in America's Past Time.

JEFFERSON CITY聽鈥?Missouri started fiscal year 2015 with an increase in general revenue for the month of July.General revenue increased 6.5 percent -- or 31.5 million -- from July of last year, according to聽State Budget Director Linda Luebbering.The increase comes just a month after Luebbering announced general revenue for the fiscal year that ended June 30 was Celine Bags Outlet down 1 percent -- or 79.4 million -- from 2013.Gov.

Saturday night brought a sold out crowd to Philadelphia s Citizens Bank Park for a performance by Billy Joel. And Joel, who has a reputation for giving it all in his live shows, did not disappoint.
Joel played upwards of 25 songs (a couple of those were more Porte-Monnaie like snippets of songs), including a five song encore. No, he did not play Captain Jack, the song that back in 1972. But other than that, he didn t leave off many big hits. (See the full set list below.)


And he knows that when you're in Philly, you've got to show Philly some respect.
He donned a Phillies cap:
Billy Joel rockin Phillies hat at Citizens Bank Park. We Didnt Start the Fire-sale
John Clark CSN (@JClarkCSN)

He played the Rocky theme, aka "Gonna Fly Now":

He brought Boyz II Men out for "The Longest Time":

And he even covered Philly's Gamble and Huff-produced Soul Survivors:

We quite like that he brought his roadie Chainsaw out to sing AC/DC:

Of course, as is always the case with the Internet, people Pochette Louis Vuitton used the occasion of the Billy Joel concert to show off their wit.
Seems that Spike Eskin is not a fan:
As I close in on 40, my only real fear is being forced to sit through Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel concerts.

One had a Phillies-related request:
Hey , can you dedicate movin out to Ruben Amaro?

Oh, but that wasn't the only Phillies dig:

John Clark CSN (@JClarkCSN)

Nope, still not done:
Billy Joel s piano scored more than the Phillies did this weekend!
Russell Wheeler (@rpwheels68)

We could go on with the Phillies bashing, but we won't.
Meanwhile, folks also had some bashing for Miley Cyrus, who was performing across the street at the Wells Fargo Center while Joel was at the ballpark:
Miley Cyrus needed a thousand props and costume changes to put on a good show. Billy Joel needed a piano.
SAM GALLEN (@SJGallen)

Its a shame that a man like billy Joel has to share a night with someone like miley cyrus

ABUJA, Nigeria Nigerian authorities on Monday confirmed a second case of Ebola in Africa's most populous country, Louis Vuitton Totally an alarming setback as officials across the region battle to stop the spread of a disease that has killed more than 700 people.Also Monday, health authorities in Liberia ordered that all those who die from Ebola be cremated after communities opposed having the bodies buried nearby. Over the weekend, health authorities in the West African country encountered resistance while trying to bury 22 bodies in Johnsonville, outside the capital Monrovia. Military police helped restore order.In Nigeria, Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu said test samples are pending for three other people who had shown symptoms of Ebola, and that authorities are trying to trace and quarantine others. The confirmed second case in Nigeria is a doctor who had helped treat Patrick Sawyer, the Liberian-American man who died July 25 days after arriving in Nigeria from Liberia."Three others who participated in that treatment who are currently symptomatic have had their Louis Vuitton W samples taken and hopefully by the end of today we should have the results of their own test," Chukwu said.The emergence of a second case raises serious concerns about the infection control practices in Nigeria, and also raise the specter that more cases could emerge. It can take up to 21 days after exposure to the virus for symptoms to appear. They include fever, sore throat, muscle pains and headaches. Often nausea, vomiting and diarrhea follow, along with severe internal and external bleeding in advanced stages of the disease.Doctors and other health workers on the front lines of the Ebola crisis have been among the most vulnerable to infection as they are in direct physical contact with patients. The disease is not airborne, and only transmitted through contact with bodily fluids such as saliva, blood, vomit, sweat or feces.Sawyer, who was traveling to Nigeria on business, became ill while aboard a flight and Nigerian authorities immediately took him into isolation upon arrival in Lagos. They did not quarantine his fellow passengers, and have insisted that the risk of additional cases was minimal.Nigerian authorities said a total of 70 people are under surveillance and that they hoped to have eight people in quarantine by the end of Monday in an isolation ward in Lagos. The emergence there is particularly worrisome because Lagos is the largest city in Africa with some 21 million people.Health officials rely on "contact tracing" locating anyone who may have been exposed, and then anyone who may have come into contact with that person. That may prove impossible, given that Sawyer's fellow passengers journeyed on to dozens of other cities and the health Louis Vuitton Wilshire workers who treated them may have exposed family members.Nigeria is the fourth country to report Ebola cases and at least 728 other people have died in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
Associated Press writer Jonathan Paye-Layleh in Monrovia, Liberia contributed to this report.

But I don t understand? I said to my authoritative male friend, with what I hoped was a simplistic coquettishness befitting of my gender.
Advertisement
That s because you re not hot, he told me, authoritatively, patting me on the shoulder with the edge of his fingertips.
True, I agreed, before cutting his head off, because I was still crazy.
So I watched McLendon s video again. Here are some of the lessons I learned:

1. All women are at least a little bit crazy
Over at the Woman Factory, units are programmed to be at least a 4 on the 1-10 scale of crazy. The real tragedy is that when we get sent to the shops for purchasing, there s no indicator of which personality Sac LOUIS VUITTON we ve been programmed with. How do you know if you re getting a manageable 4 or even a 5 instead of one of those barking mad 7 or 8 models? You don t.
This is just one of the many examples of how society discriminates against men. Maybe even the worst example.

2. Men have strict standards
Women who fall between 0-5 on the hot measurement of the scale fall in the No Go Zone . According to the serial killer presenting the video, You do not hang around, date and marry women who are not at least, in our mind, a 5.
Because you have to put a value on yourself, fellas - and I think we can all agree that if you re the kind of person who makes sexist graphs for , then you deserve if not the very best, then at least 50% of it. It s an equality worth fighting for.

3. Holiday in the fun zone
On McLendon s incredibly scientific graph, women who fall somewhere between a 5 and an 8 on the hot scale are available for fun times provided they don t also broach the separating line over into the crazy red zone. Now, you ll notice that eights can get away with being slightly crazier than fives. This is just, like, the basic rules of feminism.
The problem is, you don t want to Sac LOUIS VUITTON solders settle down with those mid rangers because what you actually want is to move towards something a little more permanent - preferably with a 9 or a 10. These are the kinds of women you ll introduce your friends and family to, sometimes even as your girlfriend and not just a homeless woman who lives outside your house. But here s the thing - if their craziness hovers somewhere between a 5 and a 7 - which is practically sane in woman terms - you might even want to make that crazy lady your wife.
So take your time and enjoy the fun zone, but don t spend all your quarters at the arcade.

4. Highway to the Danger Zone
There s a type of woman so crazy, so terrifying, that she needs to be avoided by men who keep pens in their top left pocket at all cost. That type of woman lives in the Danger Zone. Redheads, strippers, women named Tiffani - we re all super crazy. If you get mixed up with one of us, you re opening yourself up to all kinds of just like, drama and stuff. Cars being keyed, bunnies in pots, your tyres slashed...you might even wind up in jail.
You might be tempted, lord knows you ll be tempted. But is it worth it, just to see whether or not the rumours are true that firecrotches actually shoot flames from their nethers after coitus to permanently destroy their mate s junk? Besides, I only did that once and I missed anyway because women are lousy shots.

5. Dude looks like a lady!
Do you know what? In the parlance of internet speak, I can t even with this one. I just can t even. It was a f--king terrible exercise in misogynist humour in the first place, and then McLendon - who actually has a girl s name, by the way - rutted Sac LOUIS VUITTON pas cher it into even lower depths of offensiveness with his reference to trannies and dudes dressed as women .
McLendon seems to think there s nothing funnier than the kind of really obnoxious transphobia which leads to trans women being murdered for tricking unsuspecting men into finding them attractive. That mocking the mental health of women - both cis and trans - is so deeply original and hilarious that he should have every right to stand there and talk about which kinds of women deserve to be respected and which don t while he has a fucking gun strapped to his belt, and then link it to so all the deeply disturbed men who frequent that message board can wax lyrical about how goddamn accurate the whole thing is.
But look, that s probably just my crazy talking. I am a redhead after all and it s a science fact that we re unhinged.
Women, hey?! Can t live with them. Can t always get away with shooting them.

Inspired by Hope, Tim Costello's memoir by anecdote, Brown says the book reflects a mixture of his experiences, including such misfortunes along the way as his childhood struggle with his sexuality.
One of the first stories recalls his encounter as a young doctor in London with the body of rock legend Jimi Hendrix, who died at the age of 27 after consuming too much red wine and too many sleeping tablets.
Advertisement
He'd had a struggle with racism and he was a guitarist, Brown explained. I'd had a struggle with homophobia and I was an environmentalist.
Other stories touch on Louis Vuitton Neverfull his connection with the Greens, the Wilderness Society and Bush Heritage Australia, the organisation that was conceived at the little cottage Brown bought at Liffey, a bike ride from Launceston, 40 years ago.
Bush Heritage now owns almost 1 million hectares, and Brown has just returned from three months grey-nomading with partner Paul Thomas, sleeping under the stars at Bush Heritage properties in western Queensland and New South Wales.
I am happier than ever, the beaming 69-year-old told his audience at Vila Alba Museum in Kew, before describing the sheer delight of camping by billabongs, watching the brolgas and listening to dingos.
If there is an underlying theme of the stories, Brown says it is that we should use our God-given intelligence to alter the trajectory of human society away from the current mass religion of materialism.
The great god Growth has us by LV Monogram Idylle the throat and yet the planet can't stand it, he says. Do we have to go through catastrophe before we fix the direction and make sure our future is secure?
As Brown sees it, the contest is between common sense and the absurdity of saying me now is more important than them later , but it is also a battle between optimism and pessimism.
Pessimism knocks you out; optimism makes you active. Depression is a very warranted reaction to what's going on in the planet today ... we have to be able to find way to turn it around.
That's where the ballot box comes in and, with it, the political content of Brown's book launch speech, which accounted Monogram Multicolore for much less than 10 per cent. We've got a glitch at the moment, he says. It will pass.

I said, Well, we don t have it in the budget.   So that s when Faith and her mom, Ida, decided to make it happen on their own.They wrote grant applications, organized coin drives, tapped businesses and churches for donations, and set up other fundraisers.They even sent a video asking television host Ellen DeGeneres for support.The Hollywood A-lister didn t respond to their request, but folks who live in the small community in southeast Thurston County certainly did. Everyone stepped up, Ida Boesch said. It s just a tremendous Louis Vuitton Citadine effort of the community, Garchow added. Everyone s gotten behind it. Volunteers from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the Rainier City Council and the school district joined others in digging holes, raking rocks, securing posts and building the playground set, which is accessible to disabled students and features several elements for kids to climb, bounce and play on.The new set is much larger than the school s wooden set, and features toys that are geared toward older kids. I want to try everything, said 8-year-old Matthew Louis Vuitton Delightful Kenney, as he took a short break with his twin brother, John, during the work party.Their grandma Terri Rendahl predicts that the playground will be an instant hit and get plenty of use even when school isn t in session. It s amazing what one little girl s dream turned into, Rendahl said.

The Ebola virus spreading in parts of Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen West Africa was in 1976 in what s now the Democratic Republic of Congo. More than 2,000 people have died in the 38 years since with little progress toward any kind of cure or vaccine.
You might ask why doctors are slow to figure it out. Well, it s a pretty hard virus to study, for one. The virus itself evolves so fast that a vaccine today might do little to an outbreak in the future. Also, people die so quickly from Ebola that it s hard to do human trials when a potential viable drug does become available.
Not to mention that studying Ebola is extremely . Research equires a biosafety level 4 laboratory, which sounds like the kind of place you woudn t want to go to work in every day. Right now only such labs exist.
All that said, on Monday, an extraordinary thing happened. A serum was by the National Institutues of Health a biomedical research facility run by the government and based in Bethesda, Maryland to Liberia, where it was admistered to two Americans who had contracted the virus. It was a last-ditch effort to save their lives. (It Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy remains unclear, by the way, why the Americans got the honor).
The treatment, known as ZMapp, had never been tested on humans before. But the doctors that treated patients and Nancy Writebol called the results miraculous. Brantly is now back in the United States, and is expected to arrive in Atlanta on Tuesday. Both are said to be doing remarkably better.
The medicine is a cocktail of three Ebola antibodies and was developed by a San Diego-based firm called Mapp Biopharmaceutical with the help of .
It works in two ways. The first involves what s known as passive immunization, meaning the antibodies in the vaccine attack the Ebola virus directly. The vaccine also boosts a patient s immune system in what s known as active immunization, helping them fight back the virus on their own, too.
But it had been far from ready for human trials, and may have been provided to Brantly and Writebol through the USDA s regulation, which is extremely rare and probably requires a lot of paperwork.
There are some other Ebola drugs in the works, as well, though none are annywhere close to approval.
A Canadian company known as Tekmira Pharmaceuticals has been working on a cure for the past four years as part of a contract with the US Defense Department. Its treatment, TKM-EBOLA, Louis Vuitton Portemonn sends the drug through a patient s bloodstream with tiny oil particles. While Tekmira began testing the drug on humans earlier this year, it was put last month because of potential health concerns.
A third possible cure is known as. It s been developed by a North Carolina firm called BioCryst Pharmaceuticals to treat a broad spectrum of diseases, including Ebola. It works by setting up a molecular road block to stop the virus from replicating, a process called chain termination. But it hasn t been tested on humans yet, and that isn t likely to happen for another .
Doctors have also tried from Ebola survivors into patients showing symptoms, but with mixed results.
On July 30, Mapp Biopharmaceutical won from the US military s Defense Threat Reduction Agency for ZMapp due to promising results. The money will be used to prepare an FDA request for initial clinical testing.

That s the good news. The bad news is the entry-level model costs $3000 than it did just over a year ago.
but the new range begins at $17,000 drive-away for the same entry-level model.
Advertisement
But the rest of the range has remained steady, now with the on-road and dealer costs factored in.
The 500 Sport was priced at $16,900 plus on-roads but is now $21,000 drive-away (and badged as the 500S). The 500 Lounge is now $23,000 drive-away, compared to $20,300 plus on-roads previously.
The only other change to the 500 range for 2014 is the introduction of a digital TFT dashboard on all models, with the exception of the Pop. The new dash retains the same retro style of the older 500s but has sharper graphics and more details.
The rest of the car is unchanged with the same choice of 1.2-litre (Pop) and 1.4-litre (S) petrol Sandals four-cylinders and 0.9-litre two-cylinder turbocharged petrol engines.
Gearbox options remain the five-speed manual for the Pop and six-speed manual for the 500S. The Lounge comes standard with the brand s five-speed Dualogic robotised manual gearbox - which is a $1500 option on the Pop and 500S.
The Pop, S and Lounge are also available with a retractable fabric roof (as the 500C) which adds $2500 to the price.
The other major change is the performance-oriented Abarth version has been expanded into a two model range with the 500 Sneakers Louis Vuitton Esse Esse replaced by the 595 Turismo and 595 Competizione.
The Abarths' pricing doesn't include on-road costs with the Turismo costing $33,500 and the Competizione $36,500 for the hard-top and $39,000 for the convertible.
Those prices compare to $34,990 plus on-roads for the superseded .
The Abarths are powered by a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, good for 118kW and 230Nm. The Abarth is available with a five-speed manual or Dualogic transmission.
Both the Turismo and Competizione manage the 0-100km/h sprint in 7.4seconds, Fiat claims.
The Turismo comes standard with leather seats, 10-spoke 17-inch alloys, ventilated front disc brakes and Koni sports suspension.
The Competizione adds auto airconditioning, fabric trimmed Sabelt sports seats, five-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels, dual mode exhaust and tinted rear windows.

A U.S. Air Force spy plane had no choice but to fly into Swedish air space without permission to evade a Russian fighter jet just a day after a missile downed Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, American Celine Doctor Frame Bags military officials admitted. The plane, an RC-135 Rivet Joint, was conducting electronic surveillance on the Russian military when the Russians began tracking it with land-based radar, ultimately sending a fighter jet to intercept the plane, reported.
In fleeing, the reconnaissance plane entered Swedish airspace without Sweden鈥檚 permission and may have flown over other countries without their knowledge, although military sources refused to confirm to CNN which countries might be included on that list.

It wasn鈥檛 immediately clear where the spy plane was flying when Russian radar tracked it; it may have been over the Baltic Sea, which would explain its flying into Swedish airspace while trying to flee from a Russian interceptor. 聽
Russian military officials haven鈥檛 commented on the spy plane鈥檚 flight to western media, but the incident is only the latest close encounter between an American and Russian jet. In April, a Russian SU-27 Flanker fighter plane came within 100 feet of an American RC-135U reconnaissance plane over the Sea of Okhotsk between Russia and Japan.聽
A U.S. intelligence report, released days after the MH17 crash killed all 298 people aboard, proved while Kremlin-backed rebels are believed to have shot down the plane, the region at the time.

Last week the British actor, author and comedian posted a video accusing Fox's Sean Hannity of "behaving like a terrorist".
, posted on Brand's satirical YouTube channel 'The Trews', was a response to a segment Hannity filmed on the crisis.
Advertisement
In the clip, Brand accused Hannity of being pro-Israel and of bullying his guests.
"Sean s not interested in truth," Brand says, "Hannity is only interested pushing a particular perspective.
Hannity repeatedly asks a Palestinian-American guest about how he would feel if missiles were being fired into his neighbourhood, before interrupting his attempts to answer.
Hannity also asked whether the guest, Yousef Munayyer of The Palestine Centre, was "thick in the head" before yelling "Is Hamas a terrorist organisation? I'm asking you a question... Answer, answer the question! You're a guest but you don't get to filibuster the question."
One definition Sac Louis Vuitton Wilshire of terrorism is using intimidation to achieve your goals," Brand said, in response. "Who in that situation was behaving like a terrorist?
Sean Hannity - that s where the terrorism s coming from.
Hannity hit back at Brand a day later, saying: "Yesterday, Russell Brand a d-list actor, better known for his failed marriage to Katy Perry recorded himself going on a 12-and-a-half-minute tirade against little old me."
"Russell, if you re watching, which I know you are, take a close look at the TV so I can educate you because you re kind of dumb and ignorant."
But, Brand appears to have had the greater impact.
His clip has been viewed by more than 2.3 million people, a point not lost on Hannity's guest Yousef Munayyer.
In a tweet on August 3, Munayyer pointed out that Brand's "slamming" of Hannity was viewed more times than the interview itself. Now, Brand has added fuel to the fire of this "online spat".
Brand has now posted a , in which he addresses their "trivial conflict which actually has as its background the worst conflict on the planet". Sac Louis Vuitton Speedy Round
Brand breaks down Hannity's attack, in which Hannity apologised if Brand didn't like his "style of interviewing".
"It's not a style of interviewing," Brand responds. "It's because he got that bloke on... to talk for Muslim people and then didn't let him answer...
"What's your style of interviewing Sean? 'I don't let people respond to questions that I ask them and then I bully and berate them and then... revert to my own agenda aggressively'... that's not a style of interviewing, that's not doing it."
Brand then plays a part of Hannity's rebuttal:
"Apparently Russell can t get it through his thick head and possibly fathom that this is the reality, Hannity said.
Russell responds: It s not a reality. It s a combination of speculation, conjecture, and highly contextualised and selective information. That s not reality. It s piecing together a narrative that fits in with Fox s world view and his own bigoted world view, he says.
That s not reality, it s a tiny aperture through which bigoted and particular information is glimpsed. That s sort of the opposite of all encompassing, wonderful, unknowable reality.
The second clip, posted on Friday, has already had more than one million views.
The articulate tirade is just the latest of many for the star, who refers to himself as a "recovering junkie".
Only recently, Brand stood before tens of thousands of people in London s Parliament Square and called for a .
He also called for a "revolution" in a 2013 feature as guest editor for the magazine.
In the controversial post he also encouraged people not to vote as "there is nothing to vote for".
"I feel it is a far more potent political act to completely renounce the current paradigm than to participate in even the most trivial and tokenistic manner, by obediently X-ing a little box."
Brand followed up the piece with an interview on BBC's , which has now been viewed more than 10 million times.
In the interview, Brand and Newsnight anchor Jeremy Paxman went head-to-head about politics. Despite trading criticisms, Paxman later agreed that Brand had a point.
"I think part of Russell Brand's diagnosis is right. There is a huge sense of disillusion out there," .
He also acknowledged Brand's political popularity.
"There is something irresistible about him... he stands squarely in the British tradition of cheeky chappies."

Dustin Johnson was associated with drug and alcohol use long before the PGA Tour allegedly suspended him last week for testing positive for cocaine.

The 30-year-old has announced that he was taking an indefinite leave of absence from golf 鈥渢o seek professional help for personal challenges I have faced.鈥?
Johnson failed at least three drug tests since 2009 -- two for cocaine and one for marijuana. He also reportedly served an unannounced suspension in 2012 after testing positive for cocaine. While Johnson鈥檚 reps have never confirmed that suspension, he withdrew the 2012 Masters after allegedly injuring his back while and missed three consecutive months of play.
The PGA Tour released a statement Friday that聽 that Johnson was serving a suspension. However, a source told the that Johnson was given an ultimatum -- either clean up the drug use or face suspension.
An eight-time event winner, Johnson is considered to be one of the most talented players on the PGA Tour. However, he has drawn criticism throughout his career from those who suggest that his hard-partying ways interfered with his ability to perform on the golf course.
The Golf.com report hinted at Johnson鈥檚 alleged antics, noting that 鈥渉e is often seen in bars near his home in Jupiter, .鈥?This apparent propensity for alcohol use caused trouble for Johnson in the past; he was on a DUI charge in South Carolina. 聽聽
Johnson鈥檚 alleged romantic entanglements have also come under scrutiny in recent days.

Other than the disappointing brevity (other than Louis Vuitton Evora that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?), Derulo's show was very entertaining.
The 15-song concert was loaded with Derulo's hits he even sang two of them twice.
It started with his double-platinum single "In My Head," then his quadruple platinum debut single "Whatcha Say." Both were well done, but Derulo's intricate and energetic dance moves sometimes left him breathless and singing just snippets of the lyrics.
(At least the vocals were live that's more than you can say for many performers today.)
"Stupid Love," with Derulo stationary at a mic stand as a couple danced in front of him, was sung much better. At a lyrical break, he danced, too.
His triple-platinum hit "Ridin' Solo" came just four songs into the show, and again, slowing down the choreography meant his singing was much better. He even hit the high falsetto note at the end, then went into a three-minute Louis Vuitton Galliera breakdown dance routine.
Then came "Marry Me," which even before the proposal was one of the night's best songs. Even better was last year's platinum hit "The Other Side" his singing more sedate. Then he teased the crowd of 3,545 (only slightly larger than the audience at Mayfair in 2010) with a short version of his recent huge hit "Talk Dirty."
"They're not ready for that!" Derulo's DJ who headed a three-man band told him. And so Derulo spent several more minutes dancing.
That in itself may have been astonishing: The 24-year-old Derulo said he had a broken rib, and his DJ said he wasn't supposed to perform, but didn't want to cancel.
"Breathing" finished with another three-minute dance break, and "Don't Wanna Go Home" also was stretched by yet another dance break. And for a repeat of "The Other Side," Derulo, who had started the night in a leather jacket, stripped bare-chested for another dance break that lasted three minutes.
"Does Bethlehem know how to wiggle?" Derulo said before launching into his current hit "Wiggle." Sweaty, with the old chains around his neck swinging, Derulo danced sensuously, broken rib or not.
And for the full version of "Talk Dirty," he danced precision popping moves.
Derulo essentially closed with his new single "Trumpets," another song that he sang better even a nice falsetto as his dancers built a human pyramid. He ended the concert with short (less than a minute each) versions of the songs "Kama Sutra" and "Bubblegum" off his newest disc, "Talk Dirty," released in April.
The fact that the album has become Derulo's highest-charting ever should tell him something: It's OK to sing songs other than your hits. Fans want to hear deeper cuts, especially if it makes your show longer.
Instead, Derulo left the stage as his dancers continued Louis Vuitton Lockit a few more minutes to make the concert exactly an hour.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) Rangers say a man rescued from a mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park suffered life-threatening injuries after falling an unknown distance while sliding down snow.

Creadon was in a steep cirque above Loomis Lake. Rangers and equipment were flown to the lake in between severe thunderstorms Friday.
Despite his injuries, he was able to descend toward the lake and rangers were able to reach him just after midnight.
The rescue came a day after a climber found a body on Longs Peak.

Games outdoors or in are supposed to be taken seriously, but they're also designed to be fun. Players are supposed to be polite. But, as we know about human nature, perfectly nice people like to win. And that can lead to problems.
Understanding why people behave like they do can relieve some of the frustration for the rest of us, and help us keep things and spoilsports in perspective.
Arrested development
Nicole M. LaVoi, associate director of the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport (tuckercenter.org) at the University of Minnesota, says that those who want to win at any cost are referred to as "ego-oriented" in their achievement motivation, versus a person with a "mastery orientation," where success is based on self-improvement and doing one's best rather than outperforming others.
Ego-oriented people, she says, "derive their self-worth on winning and outperforming others, proving one's ability, being better than others, and they don't care if they act in over- or hyper-competitive ways," LaVoi says. "They are more likely to cheat to win, trash [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] talk, act in inappropriate ways (and exhibit) bad sportsmanship because the focus is on winning and proving they are superior."
She says that the two orientations are developmental, and that by adulthood most (though not all) people move to a mastery orientation.
"It is those that get stuck in a strong ego-orientation," LaVoi says, who "usually ruin the backyard-games fun for everyone."
Social psychologist and professor Stephen Franzoi says that when we think of spoilsports, the classic Type A individual comes to mind. These people, he says, are always trying to one-up others.
That behavior can lead to success in business, "but when you go to a picnic and they carry it over to friendly baseball games or volleyball games, it becomes problematic," he says. "Certain individuals have trouble turning off a certain personality style that has proven successful in their careers. This personality style permeates all aspects of their lives."
Take a deep breath
Jim Fannin, author, mental performance coach, life strategist and a former tennis pro, says that self-discipline is one of the markers [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Artsy[/url] of being a champion. Wild-eyed Uncle Bob, however, lacks that.
"The best in the world have tremendous self-discipline," Fannin says. "They have reason [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Audacieuse[/url] over emotion."
Uncle Bob and even your good friend Charlene, however, are not the best in the world at croquet or any other lawn game.
Fannin, who has coached professional athletes, CEOs and everyone in between (jimfannin.com), believes that physical changes can be blamed partly for players' misbehavior. He says that the average person breathes 15 to 17 times per minute. When people start overthinking situations or getting too emotionally involved (even if it's croquet), their breathing rate can climb past 20.
"When you get in a stress situation where you want an outcome, you increase your breathing, increase your heart rate, and if you don't pay attention, frustration, impatience, embarrassment all happen," he says.
That's why Bob and Charlene get carried away. The solution, he says, would be for them to step back, take a deep breath, relax and refocus. (This is probably information best shared before you start the game, not in the midst of their meltdown.)

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)- Logan Gonzales has a severe nut allergy.
鈥淢y throat closes and my tongue gets really big,鈥?Gonzales explained.
This 12-year-old has been in the hospital nearly 50 times because of his nut allergy. It makes him scared to go new places and he is often segregated at school to protect against exposure. Logan and his family bought an allergy detection dog with the hope of allowing Logan to expand his world.
鈥淲e had hopes that this would change his life,鈥?said Judie Gonzales, Logan鈥檚 mom.
The Gonzales family paid $17,000 to [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] Angel Service Dogs, based in Monument, Colo., for a labradoodle named Roxie. Roxie was trained to sniff out and alert to the scent of peanuts. The family聽says when they took Roxie home she could detect the scent, but she was far too distracted to work efficiently as a service dog.
鈥淚鈥檝e been training dogs approximately 35-years,鈥?said Sean Hartley, a dog trainer based in Colorado Springs.
Hartley says he tried to train Roxie to be an Angel Service Dog, but she didn鈥檛 have the right personality. He says she was easily distracted, which made her a poor聽candidate for working as a service dog.
鈥淩oxie was not ready,鈥?Hartley told CBS4.
He says he told that same thing to Sherry Mers, the owner of Angel Service Dogs, before Roxie went home with the Gonzales family. But the dog was sold anyway.
鈥淚t looked like it started to become more about the money than [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] the product we were putting out, and not about the kids,鈥?Hartley said about Angel Service Dogs.
Judy Gonzales says her son and the rest of the family love Roxie and wouldn鈥檛 want to give her up. She calls the labradoodle a very expensive house pet. She also tells CBS4 that in the nine years they鈥檝e owned Roxie, Logan has been to the hospital 15 times because of his peanut allergy.
RELATED:
Sean Hartley is still training scent detection dogs for peanut allergy suffers. He works privately and says he picks the dogs and the families that he works with very carefully. He also charges around $10,000, about half of what Angel Service Dogs charges.
鈥淭he dogs that are sweeping in front of the President (of the U.S.) cost roughly between $10,000 and $15,000 and that鈥檚 with 12 odors鈥orking for the President. I couldn鈥檛 understand how someone could charge so much for a dog working one odor,鈥?Hartley said.
Hartley trained Max to detect peanuts for 6-year-old Dillon.
鈥淗ow does he tell if there鈥檚 a peanut in there?鈥?asked CBS4鈥檚 Suzanne McCarroll.鈥淗e sniffs first and then he sits,鈥?Dillon replied.
鈥淭o have that level of protection, I don鈥檛 know if you can put a price on it,鈥?said Dillon鈥檚 [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] father, Rudy Haberzettl.
Haberzettl and Hartley both agree that a scent detection dog is just one of many tools that families should use to keep their children safe. No one tool is foolproof, but using several lines of defense can help keep children out of the hospital.
CBS4 tried to contact Sherry Mers, the owner of Angel Service Dogs for comment on this report. She did not return our calls. In the past she has publically said that she stands by all of the training for all of her dogs. She also says that the families who buy scent detection dogs have a responsibility to maintain the training after the dog is in the home.

"Me and my friend lived in a van in Maui [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-long-51]Portefeuille long[/url] and we listened to that and smoked weed every day," Pratt said of Dre's classic, which featured two tracks with a young and hungry Slim Shady. "I know every word to that album." When asked to prove it, Pratt spat out a flawless, pitch- and rhythmically-perfect a cappella of Eminem's verse from "Forgot About Dre" to the surprise and amazement of Whoo Kid.
Pratt also weighed in on Hollywood's new favorite feud between Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom. After Whoo Kid compared David Hasselhoff's testy reaction to the news of a Knight Rider movie (which Pratt has been rumored to star in) to the beef-hungry Bieber, the DJ explained the pop star's recent altercation with the Lord of the Rings actor.

When you walk into a store, step on an elevator or wait at a bus stop, you can expect that a camera is watching. Now, even your trip to the great outdoors could be captured on video.
The Snoqualmie Ranger District covers hundreds of square miles, stretching from the foothills outside North Bend to Mount Rainier National Park. It's the job of U.S. Forest Service officer Jeff McIntosh to keep an eye [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] on things. Obviously, McIntosh can't be everywhere, so the use of surveillance cameras is something of a force multiplier.
"I generally don't put cameras out as a dragnet because I don't have the resources or the time to manage all this stuff," he said. "Generally, it's a very targeted situation where I'm deploying this camera, looking for something very specific."
Vandalism, target shooting, timber theft, off-roading, car prowls and illegal dumping, are big problems [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] in the national forest.
"It's tough to use cameras to enforce dumping unless you have an area that people just seem to dump at on a regular basis." Most dump sites are more random, said McIntosh.
One illegal dump site off a gravel road above I-90 was hard to spot because somebody deposited a load of debris over the edge of the road and down a steep slope. After locating such a mess, McIntosh said the first call he makes is to a volunteer organization such as Friends of the Trail, which will clean up the garbage within days. Otherwise, McIntosh said, the site will attract more illegal dumping.
Illegal downing of timber for firewood cutting is common in the Snoqualmie Ranger District. When he spots trees that have been cut illegally, McIntosh can sometimes catch who did it because firewood cutters will let the trees lie for a few days before returning to cut them up for firewood.
"You can go put a camera on it, come back in [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] a few days and if the wood has been taken, hopefully your camera got a picture of the guy's license plate. Then (you) run the plate, go to the house and interview the guy and you're holding the guy accountable."
Of course, there are privacy concerns. But courts have upheld the legality of surveillance cameras on public lands.
"I've never had anybody call into question my use of cameras," McIntosh said. "This is public land."
Trailheads are popular with car prowlers and another effective location for surveillance cameras, according to McIntosh. Although cameras can identify thieves, they are also hard to hide or disguise and are sometimes also targets for vandalism and theft.

WASHINGTON (August 5, 2014) A two-star U.S. general was killed Tuesday in what evidently was an insider attack by a member of the Afghan security forces, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The attacker wounded about 15 others, of whom roughly half were Americans, one official said.
A man dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire on foreign troops at Camp Qargha, a base west of the capital, Kabul.
A German brigadier general was among the wounded.
Gen. Mohammmad Zahir Azimi, a spokesman for Afghanistan's Defense Ministry, said a "terrorist in an army uniform" opened fire on both local and international troops.
Azimi said the gunman was killed.

The warring versions played out as Fairfax Media confirmed court documents showing a series of 1997 child molestation charges against Mr Farnell, who was given a three-year jail term for sexually molesting two girls under the age of 10. He had pleaded not guilty to six charges of indecently dealing with a child under 13.
Advertisement
West Australian child protection services were called in by police to investigate the ''suitability'' of Mr Farnell following the disclosure of the molestation offences.
On Tuesday night there were reports child protection officers had visited the home but were not able to speak to the couple.
The revelations fuelled what has become a global story about Gammy's apparent abandonment.
Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop announced the government would be examining Gammy's case, which was labelled ''tragic'' by Prime Minister Tony Abbott. It is understood an interdepartmental committee, which first met on Monday, would also look at broader issues relating to international surrogacy arrangements.
''We're looking at it from every angle, in terms of foreign affairs, immigration and the Attorney-General's office,'' she said.
A leading surrogacy lawyer, Stephen Page, called for criminal checks in Australia before intended parents engage a surrogate overseas.
Australian parents who have a child born to a surrogate in a foreign country are subject to a check by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to determine the child's eligibility for citizenship, but not whether the parents have a criminal history.
In contrast, Australian parents adopting a child from overseas or domestically must undergo strict background checks. Australian couples undergoing IVF also undergo criminal checks in Victoria.
Meanwhile the condition of Gammy [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url] has dramatically improved since he was rushed [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] to a hospital near Pattaya last Saturday suffering from a lung infection and what was believed to be a hole in the heart.
A spokesman for the hospital said on Tuesday doctors assessing Gammy reported he may not need heart surgery and will probably be able to go home in a couple of days.
Gammy's surrogate mother said on Tuesday she wanted the girl back ''because she is my baby. She was in my womb''.
She said she was shocked by the report the father had a conviction in Australia. ''But I will leave it up to the law whether I get my daughter back whatever happens is fate,'' she said.
On Tuesday a friend of Mr and Mrs Farnell issued a statement to Fairfax Media's Bunbury Mail to give the couple's side of the story for the first time.
David Farnell is a well-known Bunbury electrician. He has three grown-up children and is believed to have married his second wife, Wendy Li, in China in 2004.
''This has been absolutely devastating for them, they are on the edge,'' the family friend said.
''Legally they have been told not to say anything but they wouldn't be able to anyway.''
She said reports made by the Thai surrogate mother that the couple had requested an abortion when they found out Gammy had Down syndrome, and that they had subsequently abandoned the baby boy, were completely false.
The birth of the twins had been planned to take place at a major international hospital in Thailand.
But Ms Pattharamon had gone to another smaller hospital, which made the surrogacy agreement void, according to the couple. This meant the Farnells had no legal rights to the babies, even though they were the biological parents.
The babies were born two months premature due to complications. She said the couple was not told that Gammy had Down syndrome, but they were told he had a congenital heart condition.
''Gammy was very sick when he was born and the biological parents were told he would not survive and he had a day, at best, to live and to say goodbye,'' the friend said.
Ms Pattharamon then said she wanted to keep Gammy and give him a proper Thai funeral.
The couple became embroiled in a legal battle to bring home the female twin. The 21-year-old surrogate mother finally agreed to hand the baby girl over, but the couple were terrified she could change her mind.
''All this happened when Thailand was in a military lockdown and [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] very difficult to get around,'' the friend said.
''The biological parents were heartbroken that they couldn't take their boy with them and never wanted to give him up, but to stay would risk them losing their daughter also.
''They prayed for Gammy to survive but were told by doctors that he was too sick, not because of the Down syndrome but because of his heart and lung conditions and infection.''
Mr and Mrs Farnell spent two months in Thailand and extended their visas but due to the unrest said they had no option but to leave without Gammy.
A fundraising campaign has raised almost $220,000 for Gammy's medical costs and long-term care.
The fallout from the case threatens an estimated 200 Australians who seek surrogacy arrangements in Thailand every year.

Credit Ian Levy for writing an excellent article on what the signing could mean for the . If you haven't read , I strongly suggest you do. Levy has also done some great things over at hickory-high.com, which is another site that should be mandatory reading for nerdy (and non-nerdy too) basketball fans everywhere.
Levy compares the Bulls Noah-Gasol pairing to the Divac-Webber pairing of those excellent teams in the late 90's and early 00's. I truly feel that the 2002 Kings were one of the greatest teams if not the greatest to never win a championship. They had shooting, a strong post presence, and a heck of a lot of flair. Check out their if you don't remember or are too young to have witnessed their greatness. They also got jobbed against the . It was . However, all that aside, they were a fantastic team. Are the Bulls really comparable to such a great team? Let's delve into it [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/url] a bit.
One of the qualities at the crux of this Kings team was some great shooting. Take a look at their page. They had five players that shot over 35% from the arc and four of them had at least two 3pa/g. Peja was very much a high volume shooter from distance taking a whopping 4.1 per game. He shot 41.6% that year too. However, was assisted on 67% of his shots and 86% of his 3's. For reference, Korver was assisted on 94% of his shots last year. was assisted on 63%. on 42% last season. assisted on 27% his MVP season. It seems to me that Peja was very efficient and could get his own shot about as much as a Luol Deng type of player. Do the Bulls have a player like that on the roster? I'm not sure they do. However, Peja and the other guys on the Kings were still assisted on the overwhelming majority of their three point shots. So, while I am concerned that the Bulls don't have quite a variety of off the dribble shot creators, perhaps they have enough shooters? Hinrich, Dunleavy, McDermott, Mirotic, and Rose all have the ability to put up 35% + from beyond the arc. Do the Bulls have the shooting to contend with those Kings teams? I'd say just from a shooting perspective, yes, they have a chance.
Playmaking was another quality for those 2002 Kings. Most people remember the great passing, but they forget just how good they were at getting unassisted buckets. Of their top five players in terms of minutes, all of them were assisted on less than 70% of their buckets. That's pretty impressive. If you look at the probable big minutes players for this year's Bulls, Rose will definitely meet that criteria, Gasol and Hinrich likely will, Noah, Taj, and Jimmy will all be borderline, and the rest probably won't (although no idea about Snell). My strong guess is that none of our borderline players will make it or at least we won't want them too. While all three were assisted on less than 70% of FGs last season, all of them had pretty poor efficiency. They need to be assisted more to be effective. I think the Kings were underrated in their ability to get their own shot of the dribble or in the post. was a beast. I think the Bulls will fall short in this area.
Everyone seems to remember how great of a passing team the Kings were. While they were great, they were not the best in the league that year. [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/url] They were 4th in assists but first in pace (something I doubt we'll see from the Bulls), so that means in terms of pace adjusted assists, I am betting they were #5 at best. That is still pretty good especially because the Kings got lots of layups and dunks off those assists. The great part about the Kings is that they were 4th in assists without anyone averaging over 5 per game (Bibby was right on 5.0). Webber and Divac combined for 8.5 assists. Could the Bulls replicate this feat? The Bulls were 10th in assists last year while being nearly dead last in pace. This is without Derrick Rose. There is no doubt the Bulls can be a great passing team. Noah averaged 5.4 assists last year (, and on his top plays from last year if you've forgotten how good he is). Gasol averaged 3.4 last season, and has gotten to at least 3 per game every season since 2006. I think the Bulls will be great in the passing department.
There are a few other tidbits to consider. The Kings were the #3 offense and #6 defense that year. I think the Bulls will be better defensively, but can they crack the top 10 offensively? I'm still concerned about the lack of ability to break guys down off the dribble, but hopefully the plethora of shooting and multiple post players will help mitigate that. The Kings had two players who scored 20+ppg, however, they played at a frenetic pace. They averaged 5 more possessions than the Bulls last season. For reference, that's the difference between the 2005 under Mike D'Antoni and middle of the pack team in terms of pace that season. However, do the Bulls have two guys that can score? We assume Rose can, but can Pau still score enough at 34 to help out? Who knows.
The last tidbit is that the Bulls will be built around Derrick Rose where the Kings were built around Chris Webber. Both are amazing players, but the teams will certainly play differently. I think the positives to take from this comparison in general are that the Bulls should now have enough shooting and can definitely be as good if not a better passing team. Where they will struggle is unassisted shot creation. The Bulls offense may still be too reliant on precise movement and screening to be successful. That said, having the best passing big man combo since Webber-Divac is going to be lots of fun to see. All [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/url] in all this comparison made me a bit more hopeful for our Bulls this season. Hopefully, the Bulls will find similar success to the 2002 Kings...without getting screwed by the refs :).

The Sandemans believe their 16-month-old grandson, Mason Parker, would not have been murdered in 2011 if pictures of his injuries taken by childcare staff eight days before his death had been forwarded to authorities.
On Monday, Mr and Mrs Sandeman met with federal Assistant Education Minister Sussan Ley in Townsville. Mr Sandeman said the outcome was positive.
Advertisement
From what I gathered [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] from her she seemed to be all for mandatory reporting in childcare centres, he said.
He said Ms Ley had promised to bring up the issue during meetings with Australian state childcare ministers.
She said she can t interfere because it s a state matter but she s going to try and help in any way that she can and support us.
It really felt that she was on [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Speedy Round[/url] our side .
Troy William Reed, the de facto partner of Mason s mother, was in November 2013 found guilty of Mason's murder. He has sought leave to appeal the sentence.
Mr Sandeman said he had struggled to garner support from the Queensland LNP government until Prime Minister Tony Abbott wrote to him and promised to set up a meeting with Ms Ley.
The PM didn t have to open his mouth up. He sent a letter and people started to jump and that s helped the cause, he said.
I ll keep drumming up support from anybody in Australia and anyone in Queensland...it s starting to build.
Queensland s Child Protection Commission of Inquiry, which was headed up by now Chief Justice Tim Carmody, did not recommend mandatory abuse reporting for childcare centres.
However since Mr Abbott s letter to the Sandemans hit the headlines, Premier Campbell Newman said the government would consider the stance.

A passer-by stumbled on the woman's body in February, in an area of dense bushland in [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-cuir-suhali-58]LV Cuir Suhali[/url] Willis Park. Police believe she died as a consequence of being homeless.
Witnesses told police the woman had been living in the cave for six or seven years.
She was well-known to residents as she routinely walked Eastern Valley Way,  Constable Schepis said.
We've checked out most homeless refuges, she's not known to them - which to us is very odd.
She also has no record with NSW Police and is unknown to the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages.
Constable Schepis said that after extensive inquiries, including forensic tests, police had been [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-denim-60]LV Monogram Denim[/url] unable to identify her.
They believe she also lived in Queensland at some [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-mini-64]LV Monogram Mini[/url] point.
The woman gave Queensland police the name Jemima Ann King in 2002 but investigators have since confirmed that was not her real identity.
The results of an autopsy are incomplete but her death is not being treated as suspicious.
The woman is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged between 35 and 50, 155cm to 160cm tall, with a thin build and brown hair with yellow streaks.
Anyone with relevant information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Stedman Bailey learned to be patient last season as a rookie, and the start of this season will be no different.Despite a stellar college career at West Virginia, Bailey participated in only four plays at wide receiver through his first eight NFL games in 2013. He didn鈥檛 have a pass thrown his way by a quarterback until Game 9 against Tennessee.(Punter Johnny Hekker missed connections on a throw Bailey鈥檚 way on a fake punt in Game 3.)It wasn鈥檛 until the final five games that Bailey saw appreciable playing time at wide receiver, including starts at Arizona and Seattle. He had 15 catches for 195 yards over that five-game stretch, showing enough promise that he figured to be a starter 鈥?or at least a strong contender for a starting position in 2014.Then came that four-game NFL suspension for violating league policy on performance-enhancing substances. Once the preseason ends, Bailey won鈥檛 be seen again until mid-October 鈥?the Rams鈥?Monday night home game against San Francisco on the 13th to be exact.Which is a shame for the Rams because Bailey looks like he鈥檚 poised for a breakout season based on his practice performance in the first week and a half of training camp.鈥淵es, we鈥檒l miss him,鈥?coach Jeff Fisher said following Saturday鈥檚 FanFest practice at the Edward Jones Dome. 鈥淏ut he鈥檚 gonna push right through camp and will get through his ordeal, and we鈥檒l get him right back in the lineup.鈥滱long with Kenny Britt and Brian Quick, Bailey has been the most impressive pass-catcher thus far in camp. Saturday in the dome was no different, when he was quarterback Sam Bradford鈥檚 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] favorite target during 11-on-11, 2-minute, and red zone periods.鈥淪ted made a lot of plays,鈥?Fisher said. 鈥淗e knows how to get open and knows how to make the plays.鈥滵espite the suspension, Bailey is allowed to practice and play in all four preseason games. But that all stops once the preseason ends. The leaves will be turning and folks will be shopping for their [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] Halloween pumpkins by the time Bailey returns.鈥淚t鈥檚 something that kills me every time I think about it,鈥?Bailey said. 鈥淏ut my job is to compete, work hard, keep giving my all to the team, and when I come back just be looking for a show.鈥滺e put on a show Saturday, showcasing his separation skills and good hands before 15,723 spectators.During the first 11-on-11 period, Bailey caught intermediate-range passes from Bradford over the middle and down the sideline. Later in practice, he had a gain of 20-plus yards on a deep out, and then another during 2-minute drill when he split two defenders down the left sideline. His day ended with a touchdown catch, also during the 2-minute.鈥淪tedman鈥檚 been great all camp, all spring,鈥?Bradford said. 鈥淚 think he鈥檚 gonna be a big part of what we do when he gets back.鈥淥bviously, it鈥檚 a bummer that he鈥檚 not gonna be with us the first four (games), but when he comes back the timing and everything that we鈥檙e doing right now is to make sure we鈥檙e ready when he does get back.鈥漌hich explains why Bradford keeps throwing the ball Bailey鈥檚 way, and why Bailey keeps getting reps with the first-string offense in camp.鈥淚t actually makes me feel really good that they have the confidence in me to keep me out there, keep me getting reps with the 鈥?s,鈥?鈥?Bailey said. 鈥淥nce I come back, hopefully I can get back in the rotation and help this team out.鈥滲ut why not work Bailey less during camp and the preseason since he won鈥檛 be around in September, letting others get more work?For one, the Rams are thinking long-term on this, namely the 12 games Bailey will be on the field after the suspension. Even more important is the need to build chemistry with Bradford.Keep in mind, Bailey didn鈥檛 have one pass thrown his way by Bradford during the 2013 regular season. By the time Bailey started playing, Bradford was gone [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] for the year with his knee injury in Game 7 at Carolina.Even in practice, Bailey barely worked with Bradford before the injury because Bailey was so far down the depth chart. So the two were basically a blank page until workouts this June.All of which explains why Bailey was among a handful of pass-catchers Bradford invited to his home in Norman, Okla., to work for a couple of days during the Rams鈥?summer break.Having Bailey in Norman 鈥渨as huge,鈥?Bradford said. 鈥淓specially knowing that we were gonna spend (four) weeks without him. I think those two days with him in Norman were probably even more valuable than with some of the other guys, making sure that we had everything down before he鈥檚 gonna leave the building.鈥滷or the most part, Bradford and Bailey look very much in sync, but a couple of plays Saturday showed there鈥檚 still room for improvement.On one play, Bailey didn鈥檛 adjust to a blitz on a deep route. Hoping Bailey recognized the pressure and cut short his route, Bradford threw an underneath ball that landed harmlessly on the turf with nobody near.On another deep sideline pattern, Bailey was bracketed by two defenders to his inside. Seeing that, Bradford threw the ball to the open spaces outside, but Bailey recognized where the ball was going too late to get there.Even so, Bailey says, 鈥淭he game鈥檚 slowed down a whole lot for me. I know what I鈥檓 doing, whereas I don鈥檛 have to think and then go play. I know exactly what I鈥檓 doing, so I can just showcase my talents and just go play ball.鈥?

The Mike Sielski [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] has an interview with surgeon聽Richard Ferkel, aka the guy who operated on Sixers No. 3 pick Joel Embiid s balky foot, in which Ferkel is quite optimistic not only about the talented big man s career prospects, but about the possibility that he could play聽next season. Not, y know, that the Sixers appear to be in any hurry to .
Why the optimism, other than the fact that Ferkel s like the go-to man for ballers with foot ouchies? It s [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Sistina[/url] that Embiid is so darned responsible:
Embiid sustained what Ferkel called a clean break of the navicular 鈥斅燼 weight-bearing bone in the middle of the foot 鈥斅?without any major separation, which is important.

Basically, because Embiid sought attention so quickly after he experienced pain in his right foot, the break wasn t subjected to聽excessive pounding and thus didn t have a chance to pull apart, which can cause all sorts of nastiness.


Of course, it's not surprising that the high profile surgeon is cautiously optimistic and couching comments like:聽"There's no reason he shouldn't have a great NBA career and be very successful. Once this heals, hopefully this won't be an issue for him in the future." But the guy's track record with the likes of Ray Allen and Manu Ginobili is encouraging (less so聽).聽

RACINE (WITI) He had come to Racine to attend a funeral, and now, his family is preparing for his own. It was a somber evening on Sunday, August 3rd, as loved ones remembered Semar McClain gunned down in Racine last Tuesday evening, July 29th.
The mother of 19-year-old McClain is asking for your prayers. She s also looking for answers as to how her son died.
Semar McClain
Loved ones on Sunday worked to transform the back alley where McClain was found dead from a place [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] of pain to a place of peace. The back alley near Blake Street and Albert Street was adorned with candles and balloons as loved ones held a vigil in McClain s honor.
Police say McClain was shot twice in the head.
This is my son. I want to know, Marinda Cunningham said.
McClain is Cunningham s youngest son. She says she doesn t know who shot her son, or why.
It s rough because it [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] s something we ve never dealt with, Cunningham said.
Cunningham says McClain was a free spirit, but also ambitious. She says he was good with his hands, and was deciding on a career possibly in electronics.
Actually getting ready to go to college. He was working two jobs, Cunningham said.
Cunningham raised her kids in Racine, but they moved to St. Paul, Minnesota three years ago.
McClain had come back to Racine for a friend s funeral, who died following an asthma attack.
He was a leader. I noticed that about him. That was one of things that drew me to him, Elder Quentin Bolton said. Bolton was McClain s mentor when he lived in Racine.
He called me and told me he was back, so I was excited, Bolton said.
McClain called Bolton less than a week ago, to plan a reunion that wouldn t come to be.
This young man, his dreams, his gifts, and ultimately his purpose has been stolen away from him, Bolton said.
The vigil [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] in McClain s honor was led by the Racine Interfaith Coalition.
Police say this remains an active investigation.

But controversial plans to store the phone and internet records of Australians will be included in a later ''third tranche'' of legislation. The cost of storing and protecting the data is still subject to discussions between the government and telecommunications companies.

Mr Abbott said while the terror threat facing Australia ''hasn't changed'' since the setting of ''medium'' following the September 11, 2001, attacks there is ''heightened concern'' about the threat of a local terror attack.
''Everything that government can reasonably do is being done to ensure our community is safe,'' he said, vowing to leave no stone unturned in ensuring public safety.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said the measures were needed because ''hardened home-grown terrorists'' who had been radicalised [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Eden[/url] overseas may use their skills to carry out an attack in Australia.
The government is also proposing giving the Foreign Minister a new power to suspend the passports of people ASIO suspects of planning to fight alongside terrorists or returning home from combat.
Mr Abbott also revealed the election promise to repeal section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act would be dumped because ''when it comes to counter-terrorism, everyone needs [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] to be part of Team Australia''.
Ms Bishop said while the concept of Australians fighting abroad was not new, it is posing a greater threat than ever before.
''Preventing Australian citizens from becoming foreign fighters is now one of our highest national security priorities,'' she said.
''To put the threat in context, prior to the NATO-led experience in Afghanistan our intelligence and security agencies were aware of 30 people, Australian citizens, in Afghanistan fighting against the interest of the West; 25 of them came back to Australia.
''Five times that number are of interest to our security and intelligence agencies, so this is a far greater challenge for us in sheer numbers.''
Labor legal affairs spokesman Mark Dreyfus said the opposition had not yet received a briefing on the announcement [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] and would examine it closely.
''There are always concerns when additional powers are given to police and intelligence agencies. We have to make sure that changes to national security laws are informed by Australian values, which are the values of a free and democratic society,'' Mr Dreyfus said.

Judge Alison Nathan for the New York District Court for the Southern District last week denied Aereo's request for immediate consideration of its preliminary injunction聽"issues," saying that unless it is聽allowed to resume its service "in the immediate [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] future, the company will likely not survive....the company is figuratively bleeding to death."
The court agreed with broadcasters that the "appropriate step" was for Aereo to prepare an order "consistent with the Supreme Court's decision" and gave Aereo two weeks from July 31 to make its case in that order.
The New York Southern District Court is the court that initially denied the preliminary injunction, only to be overturned by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, which was then overturned by the Supreme Court's聽June 25 decision that Aereo's delivery of TV station signals over the Internet was a performance that violated copyright law [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] since Aereo had not paid a fee. The Supreme Court remanded it to the lower court.
The Supreme Court said that Aereo was like a cable system in that it also provided a public performance. Aereo, which had argued it was not like a cable system, latched onto that and asked the Copyright Office to grant it a compulsory license. The Copyright Office said it still believed that Internet retransmissions were not subject to the compulsory license, but would hold the request in abeyance in case the [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] courts or regulators came to a different view.
The FCC has also tentatively concluded that over-the-top services lack the facilities to qualify as MVPDs, and appears in no hurry to make the definitive call.
In its emergency petition, Aereo argued that it was now clear that it was a cable system and broadcasters were unlikely to prevail in their argument that the service was illegal. It can still make that argument, but on the court鈥檚 timetable.

that Pennsylvania judges have a new Code of Judicial Conduct, the first re-write in 40 years.
Among the changes: The code urges judges to consider withdrawing from cases where one of the parties has contributed a lot of money to his or her election campaign.



Judges should recuse themselves if they learn a party in a case makes a [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] donation 鈥渋n an amount that would raise a reasonable concern鈥?about fairness or impartiality.
A race in Philadelphia might cost $100,000. It could be half that in rural areas. Some states don't permit a judge to hear a case if a party has donated more than a certain amount. In New York, the threshold is $2,500 in an election cycle.
Judges [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] in Pennsylvania are not allowed to solicit [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] donations directly.

WHITEFISH BAY (WITI) The City of Milwaukee passed new sex offender ordinances last month, leaving just聽four communities in the county without rules stating where sex offenders can live.
The Village Board in Whitefish Bay is discussing the issue Monday, August 4th.
Police Chief Michael Young is recommending the city restrict sex offenders from living within 1,500 feet of schools, day cares, parks and areas considered child safety zones.
I can t even believe with all the schools and private schools and just other communities, that s not already in place, said Fox Point resident Alita Jeralts. If neighboring communities aren t doing similar things, we re not all going to have that feeling of being safe from the situation.
River Hills Village President Bob Brunner says an ordinance聽in his community聽is also in the works.
It should be an obligation of the community of where the sex offenders are, and to put an undue burden on communities that don t have any sex offenders would not be an appropriate things to do, said Brunner.
It s possible Whitefish Bay could pass an ordinance as soon as tonight. Brunner says River Hills will discuss the ordinance at a September board meeting.
That leaves Hales Corners and Shorewood as the only other communities without sex offender ordinances.

Motherhood looks good on Olivia Wilde!The [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sacs-louis-vuitton-2013-37]Sacs Louis Vuitton 2013[/url] gorgeous brunette covers the September issue of magazine, where she shows off her amazing post-baby body and poses with her son Otis. Rocking a zebra-printed asymmetrical Roberto Cavalli dress with a pink tie and Prada wedges, Wilde holds her 3-month-old in her arms as she breastfeeds inside a vintage diner. "Being shot with Otis is so perfect because any portrait of me right now isn t complete without my identity as a mother being a part of that," she tells the mag. "Breastfeeding is the most natural thing." The 30-year-old looks completely at peace as she holds her adorable baby boy, too. "I don't know, now it feels like Otis should always be on my breast," she adds. "It felt like we were capturing that multifaceted woman we've been discussing that we know we can be. You can be someone who is at once maternal and professional and sexy and self-possessed. [But] I mean, I certainly don't really look like that when I'm [typically] breastfeeding. And there's usually a diaper involved."The "Her" star and fiance Jason Sudeikis welcomed their together in April, but they have no "specific plans" when it comes to tying the knot. "We're engaged, but no specific plans yet," Olivia explains. "We just have to find the time to put it together. In many ways, a child is more of a commitment. We are fully committed and really happy as a family. And there's no definition of the 'normal [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-millimetre-artsy-41]Louis Vuitton Millimetre Artsy[/url] family' anymore. Kids today are growing up with so many different definitions of family. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't feel any pressure to do it. But I think it will be really fun." This will be the second marriage for both Wilde and Sudeikis, the "Rush" star married Tao Ruspoli (at 19-years-old) in June 2003 but the two later divorced in 2011. "[I] wouldn't be this person without that first marriage," she reveals. "I really grew up with my first husband. Now I'm in a much wiser, more centered place in life. I think if we can see people in our lives as chapters, we have a much healthier perspective about the whole thing. It's like it had to happen the way it happened. Jason and I lived two blocks [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-keepall-49]Sac Louis Vuitton Keepall[/url] away from each other for years and never met."And when it comes to parenting, the brunette beauty attributes her success to her mother Leslie Cockburn, who's a successful writer, producer and filmmaker.

FULTON聽鈥⒙燗meren Missouri has reported elevated levels of radioactive materials at a [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] new groundwater monitoring well on the campus of its Mid-Missouri nuclear power plant.The St. Louis utility told the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission that water samples from the well at its Callaway plant show levels of radioactive tritium and Cobalt-60 higher than those found in drinking water.The utility told the NRC that it stopped discharging treated water from the plant into the affected area after results from the July 25 test became known. The company said in a prepared statement that the elevated levels don't affect public drinking water supplies and there is no radiation dose to the plant staff or the public.聽The tritium was found at levels roughly 80 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] times the standard for drinking water set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Tritium increases the risk of cancer, but if ingested it leaves the body relatively quickly and is not as dangerous as other radioactive particles.聽The test results were publicized by the Missouri Coalition for the Environment, which opposes the utility's efforts to expand its nuclear power production.Ameren is in the midst of asking federal regulators to extend the plant's operating license by 20 years to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] 2044. The utility has said it expects a decision from the NRC by the end of the year.

There are plans to create a gaming room where teens can play and create video games. A proposed 3-D printer would allow students and business owners to develop prototypes for innovative projects. Visitors would be able to check out tablet devices pre-loaded with dozens of e-books. And a serene outdoor courtyard could host musical events and poetry slams.
鈥淭he [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] dynamic of the library is changing,鈥?Hewitt librarian Waynette Ditto said. 鈥淚t鈥檚 going to be heavily focused on technology and what technology we鈥檒l need to make that happen.
鈥淚t鈥檚 going to be a very interactive, multimedia type of library.鈥?
The city is finalizing the design plans for a $4.5 million joint library and city hall, with about 65 percent of the building to be used for library needs. Hewitt City Council voted to issue certificates of obligation to pay for the 26,500-square-foot project at its July 21 meeting.
The new space will have separate areas for toddlers, young children, teens and adults, along with quiet reading rooms and conference rooms groups can reserve for meetings and small gatherings.
Ditto said the library will feature limited walls, which will allow the space to be reconfigured to accommodate future needs.
The building will feature an exhibit space. Ditto also wants to create a sleek coffee bar that may boast an upscale Starbucks vending machine store.
Young readers
Mary Anna Roch, who has served on the library board for 21 years, said her focus has been making sure the library has adequate resources for Hewitt鈥檚 youngest residents.
Now a retired elementary school teacher, Roch recalls how some students would light up whenever she brought new books or magazines to class because they didn鈥檛 have anything to read at home.
鈥淚 think when we get moved into the new facility, it will be absolutely amazing the progress that鈥檚 going to be made in all the services,鈥?Roch, 84, said. 鈥淚 think that鈥檚 going to be very interesting.
鈥淚 drove up by the new site a couple days ago just to look at it, and I thought, 鈥楾hat鈥檚 where we鈥檙e going to be right there!鈥?鈥?
The new building will be the first time the city has created a space for the library since its humble start in the basement of the First Baptist Church of Hewitt in 1983. Then, the women of the church dreamed only of a safe place for children to freely access books.
Thirty years later, the library鈥檚 mission has changed to address the literature, technology and social needs of residents in Hewitt and surrounding McLennan County communities.
鈥淚 think Waynette鈥檚 done a really good job about us keeping up with the technology here,鈥?said Shirlene Lands, another library board member. 鈥淭hings change over the years, meeting the new demands. . . . We are diverse now. A library is not just books anymore.鈥?
Computer and Wi-Fi [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] access are a boost for students and job hunters without Internet access at home, while librarians help residents access social service programs online. Local small businesses turn to the library to design and print promotional materials, Ditto said.
鈥淭he groups that meet here, the cooking class, book club, those are all pluses that I think we didn鈥檛 have before,鈥?said Sally Goldman, president of the library board. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 think we even thought about it (when the library opened). We were just thinking, 鈥楬ow can we have a place to put all our books?鈥?鈥?
Need for space
But space has been the main hindrance for the facility, which has moved into four different community or city buildings since it opened as it needed more room to adequately function.
The library was able to create separate teen and children鈥檚 rooms last year, when other city departments moved out of city hall, the library鈥檚 home since 2001, freeing up space for a new reading area.
Story time and summer reading program events usually are held in the neighboring Hewitt Meeting and Events Center. The library has had to store items in the men鈥檚 restroom because of space constraints.
Goldman, who has served on the library鈥檚 board of directors for 29 years and is its longest-tenured member, said the new building is a fitting way to honor a facility that has consistently proved to be a valuable resource for Hewitt.
鈥淚鈥檝e always told the city council, 鈥榃e鈥檝e been put on the back burner for so long,鈥?and now I can鈥檛 say that,鈥?Goldman said.
Ditto said the new library and city hall will serve as another indicator of the economic stability of Hewitt. The city鈥檚 new public safety building for the police and fire departments will open this winter, while a new Walmart is set to open next [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] summer at Interstate 35 and Sun Valley Boulevard.
鈥淐ompanies that invest in your community want it to be a strong community, and the health of a library is a direct result of the health of economic development in the community,鈥?Ditto said. 鈥淪o it鈥檚 a piece of the puzzle. Once you have all the police, fire, water, utilities, all that in place, then it鈥檚 just a natural transition to have a better library, better municipal court, better city facilities.鈥?

While giving CA boss James Sutherland and his team credit for significant gains in Australian cricket on the commercial front and for the recent resurgence of the Test and one-day teams, Marsh believes the governing body's tendency to put financial considerations first has led to many decisions being compromised.
He says he has no confidence [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-cosmic-blossom-63]LV Cosmic Blossom[/url] that an incident such as the infamous Andrew Symonds-Harbhajan Singh ''Monkeygate'' scandal would be handled differently in 2014 than it was in 2008, when Ricky Ponting's team felt betrayed by its board in the belief it sought to safeguard India's tour before supporting a player who had been racially abused.

I think CA has shown all too often that it will succumb to the threats of the BCCI [Board of Control for Cricket in India] and every time they do this the BCCI gets stronger,'' he says.
Marsh rates Monkeygate alongside the recent pact between India, England and Australia to take control of the International Cricket Council as the most disappointing events of his nine years in charge of the ACA. 
Domestically, CA is by and large doing a good job and credit should be given to its leaders,'' he says. Revenues continue to grow on the back of increased attendances, TV ratings, sponsorships etc, and this has allowed CA to invest back into the game.  
Players have been major beneficiaries of this growth. The high-performance area of cricket has had an excellent last 12 months and we have all been buoyed by this.
Internationally, I see [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-mahina-cuir-65]LV Mahina cuir[/url] CA as a follower rather than a leader. This has meant their decisions are compromised by their desire not to upset the BCCI.  Why do they allow themselves to be compromised? It s because they don t want to risk the money that comes from India.  At times they are too financially focused rather than driven by principles.
The Andrew Symonds-Harbhajan Singh incident was handled disgracefully, in my view.  Players and the integrity of the game were sacrificed in the interests of pacifying the BCCI on the back of a threat that they would withdraw the Indian team from the tour, which would in turn cost CA millions of dollars.
CA s decision not to call the BCCI s bluff was the catalyst for where world cricket sees itself today.  It also severely impacted Andrew Symonds life and therefore career. It still saddens me that such a brilliant cricketer was cut down in his prime.
Marsh believes the concentration of power and wealth among the strongest nations could lead to Test cricket being played between only three or four countries in the next two decades.
I think smaller countries will have to focus their energies and resources on the limited-overs formats [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-toile-monogram-67]LV Toile Monogram[/url] as they won t be able to compete in Test cricket and therefore their investment will move away from domestic long-form competitions,'' he says.
The other major risk I see is the increasing competition between the scheduling of domestic Twenty20 events (in particular the IPL) and international cricket. There are already numerous examples of players choosing T20 events over international cricket, and I think there will be a tipping point for some countries where international series will be cancelled because the quality of players available will be substandard.
I can certainly see a point where domestic T20 will become the dominant form of cricket, with international cricket played on a far smaller scale.
Marsh cited CA's determination to stage the world's first day-night Test against New Zealand next year, amid serious concerns among players about the suitability of the ball, as an example of putting commercial interests ahead of the integrity of the game.
My challenge to administrators is to focus your energies on the ball and don t accept a compromised product,'' he says.
But he praises the CA board, Sutherland and team-performance boss Pat Howard for their renewed emphasis on the national teams, which has led to the Test and ODI sides return to the top of the ICC rankings (the Test side trails South Africa by a point after briefly holding the No.1 spot).

Washington (CNN) - With the vast majority of African leaders in town [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] for a White House summit on the future of the continent, former President Bill Clinton said Tuesday that partnering with African business is a "massive opportunity for American business."
Clinton, who moderated the opening panel at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit, said that although the conventional wisdom is that Africa needs the United States far more than America needs Africa, the reality is that the U.S. business community "needs this relationship as much or more as Africa and its business community.鈥?

"We are missing the boat," Clinton said. "This is a very important part of our future."
Clinton's comments are part of a concerted effort by U.S. leaders and politicians to court African business and herald the continent's progress at the summit.
President Barack Obama has been at the forefront of that pitch, telling reporters on Friday that "the importance of this for America needs to be understood." He later added that Africa "happens to be one of the continents where America is most popular and people feel a real affinity for our way of life."
The pitch to Africa is more than just an economic relationship with the United States. Obama and other U.S. officials have said the United States needs to help Africa grow and benefit from ongoing progress.
In an opinion-editorial for the McClatchy newspaper group on Tuesday, Obama argued that the United States has a "moral obligation" to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] support Africa's progress.
Though Obama acknowledged the fact that "millions of Africans still endure the daily misery of grinding poverty, violent conflicts and the injustice of hunger and disease," he wrote that the United States "can鈥檛 lose sight of the extraordinary promise of Africa."
"And just as Africa is changing, we need to change the way we think about the continent, put aside old stereotypes and respond to Africans鈥?desire for a partnership of equals where Africans take the lead in their own development," Obama wrote.
The push comes at a strategically important time for the United States in Africa, given the fact that China has imported massive amounts of oil and minerals from the continent in the past 20 years.
In an interview with The Economist published last week, Obama recognized that fact. This week's conference is partly a pitch to counter China's rising influence.
"My advice to African leaders is to make sure that if, in fact, China is putting in roads and bridges, number one, that they're hiring African workers, number two, that the roads don't just lead from the mine to the port to Shanghai, but that there's an ability for the African governments to shape how this infrastructure is going to benefit them in the long term," Obama told The Economist.
Despite the positive tone of Clinton's opening roundtable where business leaders heralded the opportunity for investment in Africa a number of negative narratives also hang over this week鈥檚 summit.
Ebola has killed more than 700 people in three African nations: Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. World health officials worry that the outbreak of the deadly disease could continue to get worse. Leaders from two nations Liberia and Sierra Leone cancelled their trip to Washington because of the health scare.
The Ebola outbreak has affected the conference on a practical level, too: Conference-goers who might have been exposed to the virus in their home country are being screened upon arrival to the United States.
The conference also plans to address growing political extremism on the African continent, [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] where insurgents have overwhelmed some government forces, and created significant barriers to investment.
In addition to Clinton, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden will address the conference at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C.

A聽professor at Sweden s Lund University has used the revolutionary tech to create a visually distinct , , and . Now, Olaf聽Diegel is giving the alto saxophone a try, and [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 30[/url] so far he s had more success than even he expected.
Diegel聽revealed the initial prototype when he demonstrated the nylon-based alto sax last week in a YouTube video. The instrument sounds like an alto saxophone sort of but the nylon body creates a decidedly different coloration than your average brass sax. Its creamy complexion and rubber band-supported keys also cause the instrument to immediately stand out visually from its metallic counterparts.
After briefly playing a few runs of notes with his creation, Diegel claims聽that he initially decided to give the sax a go as an experiment, really just to see if (he) could print a saxophone. He goes on to explain that the instrument聽has a handful of flaws primarily because he designed [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] it like a traditional saxophone. Diegle聽claims that the piece needs a redesign to make it more friendly to its non-traditional fabrication.聽For the next iteration, he ll be integrating all the springs directly into the keys to address air leaks in聽some of the pads.
Woodwind instruments like聽saxophones, flutes, and clarinets are incredibly hard to replicate, not only because of the distinct timbres (or the character of the sound) produced by their body styles, but also because of the delicate interconnection shared between all of the keys. The pressing of one key might actually open certain different聽keys and close others, which means the instrument has to have perfectly balanced pressure linkages to ensure the right聽tone and pitch is produced.
The instruments created by Diegel for his聽brand, , were designed and crafted using a 3D-printing technology known as (SLS), which builds the components by spreading a thin layer of nylon powder that is fused in the correct locations for each particular layer of the component. The layer is then dropped down a fraction of a millimeter, and another layer of powder is spread on top of the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] first. This process is repeated until each 0.1-mm layer, and thus the component as a whole, is complete.

 Tuesday became the latest media company to separate its publishing assets, which include USA Today, from broadcast and digital businesses. The move is the latest in a string of similar actions by the likes of    and ., which have both separated slow-growing print segments from more profitable television divisions.
In another transaction, Gannett confirmed it will acquire full ownership of Cars.com through a $1.8 billion purchase of the remaining 73% interest it does not already own in Classified Ventures LLC. The online car shopping site, which attracts 30 million visits per [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/boston-reversible-damier-infini-ceinture-en-c-77]Boston R锟斤拷versible Damier Infini Ceinture en c[/url] month, will further Gannett鈥檚 digital reach and provide another avenue for advertising revenue.
Tuesday鈥檚 announcements come as Gannett continues to reposition its business with a focus on broadcasting. The company recently completed a $2.2 billion acquisition of Belo, which doubled the company鈥檚 broadcast portfolio and made it the largest independent station group of major network affiliates in the top 25 markets. Now reaching one-third of all American television households with 46 television stations, Gannett is primed to continue the growth of its flourishing broadcast business.
鈥淭he bold actions we are announcing today are significant next steps in our ongoing initiatives to increase shareholder value by building scale, increasing cash flow, sharpening management focus, and strengthening all of our businesses to compete effectively in today鈥檚 increasingly digital landscape,鈥?said Gracia Martore, CEO of Gannett.
Martore will remain atop the new, yet-to-be-named broadcasting and digital company, which will assume all of Gannett鈥檚 existing debt and leave the newly independent print company with minimal baggage. Management has also assured shareholders the split will not dilute the value of Gannett鈥檚 current 20-cent quarterly cash dividend.
The separation satisfies the cravings of investors who have expressed more interest in broadcast assets than in traditional newspapers, which have  struggled with declining advertising revenues. As smaller and more palatable pieces to digest, the two companies will be better positioned to serve a natural shareholder base.
While the combined company may have been wary to pour capital into print operations that produced less upside for shareholders, the publishing business will now have greater cash flow to serve its [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/ceinture-en-cuir-18]Ceinture en cuir[/url] interests. After receiving print asset stock options, new management will also be incentivized to maximize returns without the safety net of broadcast profits.
Joe Cornell, publisher of Spin-Off Research, said the divorce between Gannett鈥檚 two core businesses will spur greater investment in both arms and could lead to a merger or acquisition a year from now.
鈥淭here is a lot of buyout activity post separation in spin-offs. In fact, being purchased is four to five times more likely than for a typical S P 500 company. I wouldn鈥檛 be surprised if publishing assets were picked off at some point down the road,鈥?he said.
News of the breakup plan gave Gannett shares a modest 0.5% lift Tuesday morning, adding to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/ceinture-en-cuir-chiffres-20]Ceinture en cuir chiffres[/url] year-to-date gains that have the stock up 16.6% in 2014. If recent history is any indication there may be more upside ahead as spinoffs and their former corporate parents have performed well in recent years. The Guggenheim Spin-Off ETF is up 175.9% over the last five years, compared with a 91.9% gain for the S P 500.
Gannett鈥檚 announcement comes in what has been a banner year for spinoffs with 28 completed deals in the first six months, up from 18 in the prior year. Cornell says this momentum is likely to continue and expects 57 deals to be complete by the year鈥檚 end. (See: )
Advising on Gannett鈥檚 corporate breakup are Greenhill Company and the law firm Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen Katz. Greenhill and , and legal advisor Nixon Peabody, are advising on the purchase of Cars.com

Judge Lance Mason was arrested by Shaker Heights police this weekend for an attack that [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] sent his wife to the hospital. Mason has been a judge in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Pleas since 2008, having previously served as a state senator.
Mason was charged with felonious assault in the Shaker Heights Municipal Court, explained the city's chief prosecutor C. Randolph Keller in a press conference this morning, in a case that will likely go up to higher courts. Keller said the attack on his wife [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] occurred on Saturday in a car in Shaker Heights and continued to his home in Cleveland, where he was arrested.
Mason's wife was sent to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] the hospital and has since been released. Alcohol didn't appear to be a factor, Keller said.

Declining revenues had caused financial problems since 2008, but greater community support this year enabled the fair to renovate its facilities and expand its offerings without any additional county funding. Friday was Military Appreciation Day, which took on special meeting this year because members of the Washington National Guard repaired many of the fairground s aging structures.YAY: New appeals judgeCongratulations to Thurston County Superior Court Judge Lisa Sutton who Gov. Jay Inslee recently appointed to the Washington State Court of Appeals, Division II, which serves a six-county area. The appointment means [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] Sutton can start her term Oct. 1, instead of waiting until after the November general election. She was running unopposed for the position currently held by Robin Hunt who is retiring after 18 years on the court and 39 years of public service.The appointment has caused a buzz in the local legal community about who will apply for Sutton s position on the Superior Court and who the governor will appoint.YAY: Girl Scout projectsThrough the Girl Scout Gold Award process, young women gain knowledge and skills that accelerates their understanding of the world.

He should resign. We hope this isn t an indication of the distasteful kind of campaign NRA proponents plan to run against the initiative.YAY: Banning gay therapyLost among the many important decisions from the U.S. Supreme Court in its spring term was its refusal to review a California law that bans licensed counselors and therapists from trying to change the sexual orientation or gender expression of LGBT young people. These are dangerous practices that became notorious in the less-enlightened 1970s and have since caused immeasurable harm. California can now begin enforcing the ban the nation s first and other states can consider similar laws.BOO: Short vacationsThe U.S. Travel Association reports that since 1975 Americans have been taking shorter and shorter vacations. [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Audacieuse[/url] Back then, the average vacation lasted more than one week. Within 10 years it had dropped to 5.4 days. By 2010 it shrunk to 3.8 days. When we start measuring vacations in segments of mere hours, we quit.NOTE: The BombTake a moment on Wednesday, Aug. 6, to imagine a world in total peace.

Instead it will rely on an act created in 2009 and modified to streamline the planning process.
But Michael Crommelin, the Zelman Cowen Professor of Law at Melbourne University s law school, said it would be highly unusual for a project of its scope to be launched without specific laws supporting it.
Advertisement
A project of this scale does require project specific legislation, said Professor Crommelin, who was initially contacted by the Opposition seeking his views on the project.
Previous recent major freeways CityLink, EastLink and Peninsula Link all required specific acts of Parliament to be put in place, in part because they involved compulsorily acquiring homes and properties.
Professor Crommelin said signing contracts for the road and beginning construction without an act in place to back it would place the project in a similar situation to the federal funding of chaplains in schools, which was struck down in June.
In that instance, he said, the issue was [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON solders[/url] that in the school chaplaincy program, the Commonwealth without legislation entered into agreements with various bodies to provide chaplaincy services in school .
He said contracting a major consortium to build the road without legislation would be highly unusual.
The government will at some stage enter into major contracts with the project builders, and those contracts will involve major [financial] commitments on the part of the government, stretching over a long period of time, Professor Crommelin said. Those sorts of contracts require legislative authorisation.
Opposition planning spokesman Brian Tee said the government was hell-bent on avoiding scrutiny of the project and for that reason had not gone through a process followed by previous governments.
It s outrageous this road will consign Victorians to a generation of debt. But have they even thought it through properly?
A spokeswoman for Roads Minister Terry Mulder said the government had amended Labor s 2009 Major Transport Projects Facilitation Act to ensure projects of state significance like the East West Link avoided duplication and unnecessary red tape.
Jackie Fristacky, the mayor of Yarra Council, which is involved [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON pas cher[/url] in with another inner city council in a bid to delay the project, said that the government should be creating an act of parliament to support the road.
The project is so politically unpopular that I would expect parliament not to support it, said Cr Fristacky.
Debate over the need for legislation to support the road came as residents in Carlton, Clifton Hill, Fitzroy and Collingwood meet on Tuesday night in relation to their homes being taken by the government for the East West Link.
Some residents have been notified the process of [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sac-louis-vuitton-78]Sac Louis Vuitton[/url] compulsorily acquiring their homes will begin in early August. Those outside the project area which was gazetted by the government last Wednesday are still unclear on whether their homes will be bought.
Among them is Ande Bunbury, who lives just outside the project s boundary and whose home will face onto a major site of construction. Ms Bunbury said, if the project went ahead without her property being bought, she was screwed .
I m down $200,000, I m facing years of disruption, noise, cracking, vibration immediately outside my windows, said Ms Bunbury.

The Turner resident volunteered Monday at the school s dentist camp, an event intended to encourage high school students to consider a career in dentistry in Maine.
One of the primary missions of the dental school, which opened in 2013, is to reverse the shortage of dentists in rural parts of the state, a trend that is expected to worsen, school officials say.
At the camp, teenagers filled tooth cavities in mannequins, took X-rays and worked on teeth moldings.
Dr. Jeffrey Doss, an oral surgeon who owns a practice in four Maine towns, including South Portland, showed the students how to suture chicken breasts, which closely resemble the inside of a human mouth. In dentistry, Doss said, the sutures might be used to stem bleeding after removing wisdom teeth, or to repair a split lip.
That s right, you nailed it, Doss told Amber Ivey, a 16-year-old Houlton High School junior, after she completed a stitching.
The technique requires a steady hand.
I liked it, Ivey said, but I got frustrated because I m not used to doing the sutures.
One of 18 high school students at the camp, Ivey is considering a career in dentistry because she finds the field interesting and there s not a lot of dentists in Maine.
The state has 50 dentists per 100,000 people, compared with the national average of 61, according to America s Health Rankings, a website that collects data on the health industry.
And dentists are not spread out evenly in the state. Most rural counties have half as many, or fewer, practicing dentists [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] per capita as Cumberland County, which has 76 practicing for every 100,000 people. In Somerset County, for example, there are only 17 dentists per 100,000. Rural dentists also are older, with an average age of nearly 60.
Castonguay is a sophomore at Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania, and she hopes to get into the University of New England dental school after earning her undergraduate degree. Eventually she wants to open a practice in Maine, perhaps not far from her hometown.
Northern New England s only dental school holds spots open for applicants from Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont, said Dr. Jon Ryder, assistant dean for academic affairs. Also, all applications from northern New England are reviewed, while students from outside the region may not be considered if they don t meet certain criteria, such as not having a high enough grade-point average.
Ryder said the hope is that Mainers will stick around after graduation to open practices here.
Mainers tend to want to stay in Maine and stay near their original hometown, said Ryder, noting that 25 percent of the school s inaugural class of 64 students hails from Maine.
Fourth-year students will intern across the state and in New Hampshire and Vermont, including at community clinics, private practices and the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Togus, giving students experience both in treating patients and in living in the less-populated areas that need dentists.
Dr. Jonathan Shenkin, an Augusta dentist and representative for the Maine Dental Association, said that although the dental school is helpful, it doesn t address [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] the underlying causes of the shortage in rural Maine.
The biggest issue is not the availability of dentists, but that people can t afford dental care, Shenkin said, explaining that Maine does not cover adult dental care under MaineCare, the state s Medicaid program. About half of all states provide a Medicaid dental benefit for adults.
A bill to allow MaineCare adults one free dental cleaning per year died in the Legislature this year, as did a proposal to increase MaineCare reimbursements to dentists for pediatric care. Only about half of all dentists accept MaineCare patients.
Shenkin said a state-funded tax credit or loan forgiveness program for dentists who recently graduated from dental school also would help, since new dentists can carry debt loads of $200,000 or more. Tuition at UNE s dental school is about $56,000 per year.
In 2010, Maine voters approved a $5 million bond to help finance the dental school, but Shenkin said without the state solving other pieces of the fiscal puzzle, the dentist shortage will persist. The Legislature this year approved a new category of dental provider 鈥?the midlevel dental therapist 鈥?touted as a way to address the shortage of dentists.
Generally, dental therapists are to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] dentists what nurse practitioners are to medical doctors. However, a nurse practitioner can operate independently, but dental therapists have to work in the same office as a dentist. Some experts say that reduces the effectiveness of having the therapists, who can perform some of the duties of a dentist, such as filling routine cavities.
The Board of Dental Examiners is charged with developing educational standards in 2015 so that local colleges and universities can start dental therapist programs.
For UNE dental school student Shilo Annis of Windham, the tug of his home state is strong. Despite traveling the world as a pilot with the Army and with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, he wanted to switch careers in part to come home to Maine.
Annis, 36, showed camp participants Monday how to fill cavities on a mannequin. Once he graduates from dental school in two years, Annis hopes to set up a practice in Limington, where he lives with his wife and young child.
Maine s home, and I want to stay here now, Annis said. I m not much of a city person.

President Franklin Graham of Samaritan's Purse, said then in a statement. "Yesterday, an experimental serum arrived in the country, but there was only enough for one person.

However, Dr. Brantly received a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy who had [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/url] survived Ebola because of Dr. Brantly's care. The young boy and his family wanted to be able to help the doctor that saved his life."
It is not known whether the "serum" Brantly received before he was flown to the U.S. was the same one used on Writebol, but there has been reports that there are several drugs in development to treat the virus.

In his earlier interview with Scientific American, he deduced that there are at least three preventative vaccines that looked promising when they were tested on primates. However, there is still work needed to be done, and dollars to fund the continuation of the studies in order to prepare one for actual use.
"The hang-up point with these [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/url] vaccines is the phase I trials in humans.

I can't give you an answer as to why it's taking so long," Geisbert said.
Citing a report by , the British tabloid said the U.S. government would begin tests on an experimental vaccine on humans as early as next month. It is not determined whether it is one of the three mentioned by Geisbert, nor if the drug has been cleared by the USFDA.

DENVER (CBS4) -聽A compromise on聽the contentious fracking debate in Colorado pulled together two聽opposing sides on Monday with a聽promise聽to ax聽four ballot measures that have divided the state on the聽issue.
That agreement among聽Gov. John Hickenlooper,聽Rep. Jared Polis, environmental groups and the oil and gas industry creates an 18-member task force that will study fracking in Colorado and present recommendations to the state legislature. In exchange, they ve asked that organizers pull two pro-fracking and two anti-fracking measures and that a lawsuit against the city of Longmont be dismissed.
VIDEO:
We have an [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] obligation to develop (energy) in a way that is safe for our residents, supports jobs and the economy, respects private property rights and protects our health and environment, Hickenlooper said.
The task force will be charged to find solutions that minimize land-use conflicts near homes, schools, businesses and recreational areas. The state is seeking a balanced approach, he said, one that will represent diverse concerns from oil and gas, agriculture, environmental and health groups and local governments.
This is the way聽we do things in Colorado, Hickenlooper said. You have all the interests聽at the table. You work through the differences and difficulties and you figure out what is聽a compromise that serves聽all parties. Maybe no one is perfectly happy, but it serves all parties.
Hickenlooper said he worries about the legal ramifications if the various initiatives land on the ballot. Should聽any survive to the Nov. 4 election聽 and Hickenlooper appeared doubtful they would he said we ll have to sit and have a discussion. He didn t elaborate.
Our expectation is that all four of those will be (pulled)聽back, the governor said.
The compromise is, in some ways, a chance for Hickenlooper to recover from defeat in July, when he unsuccessfully attempted to forge a compromise through the state legislature, and for Polis to save face. The congressman who [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] represents Boulder and surrounding areas split from other top Democrats, including the governor and U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, over many fracking issues. Polis said Monday he believed solutions should have always been sought legislatively and not through elections.
Fracking is a process energy companies use to extract fuels from underground rock formations that have trapped oil and gas. Equipment injects water into the rock to fracture it and let fuels escape. Critics allege wells related to fracking are unsightly and cause small earthquakes. Proponents argue more widespread fracking will lower energy prices and help the country more efficiently explore domestic energy stockpiles.

Today s announcement regarding this potential compromise is truly a victory for the people of Colorado, Polis said. Citizens will be on equal footing with the oil and gas industry.
He said fracking opposition from four communities in his district generated animosity and a lawsuit against Longmont for its voter-approved drilling聽ban, which was struck down by a district judge in July because it competed with state interests. Monday s compromise asks the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, which regulates the industry, to dismiss another suit against Longmont, which had restricted energy development.
Polis called the litigious atmosphere unsustainable.
The task force will be split three ways, Polis said: Six will represent oil and gas interests, six will come from concerned citizen groups and six will be composed of Coloradans with extensive knowledge of the issue. The task force will be chaired by La Plata County Commission Gwen Lachelt and Randy Cleveland, the president of XTO Energy.
Hickenlooper said their compromise provides a blueprint for other states seeking solutions to similar battles across the country: This isn t just going on in Colorado. This is going on in Denton, Texas, and Wyoming and Pennsylvania. What we re working on here could be a template聽for what聽would happen聽in the rest of the country.
Monday was the deadline for signatures needed to get the initiatives on the ballot. Organizers were required to [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] collect 86,105 valid signatures.
Fracking critics turned in signatures for two ballot questions that would restrict oil and gas drilling. One would increase the minimum property setback on rigs from 500 feet to 2,000 feet. The other would create an environmental Bill of Rights.
Hickenlooper and the energy industry opposed the measures. They argue the proposals will have negative economic impacts. Supporters argue they re aimed at protecting the environment and the health of residents.
The two measures backed by the oil and gas industry are Initiative 121, which would keep revenues from communities that oppose local聽drilling, and Initiative 137, which requires ballot聽initiatives include fiscal impact estimates.
The two anti-fracking initiatives are 88, which pushes rig setbacks from homes, and 89,聽the environmental Bill of Rights.

YAY: The county fairThe popular Thurston County Fair was alive and well this weekend, thanks to many new volunteers and fair supporters. Declining revenues had caused financial problems since 2008, but greater community support this year enabled the fair to renovate its facilities and expand its offerings without any additional county funding. Friday was Military Appreciation Day, which took on special meeting this year because members of the Washington National Guard repaired many of the fairground s aging structures.YAY: New appeals judgeCongratulations to Thurston County Superior Court Judge Lisa Sutton who Gov. Jay Inslee recently appointed to the Washington State Court of Appeals, Division II, which serves a six-county area. The appointment means [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] Sutton can start her term Oct. 1, instead of waiting until after the November general election. She was running unopposed for the position currently held by Robin Hunt who is retiring after 18 years on the court and 39 years of public service.The appointment has caused a buzz in the local legal community about who will apply for Sutton s position on the Superior Court and who the governor will appoint.YAY: Girl Scout projectsThrough the Girl Scout Gold Award process, young women gain knowledge and skills that accelerates their understanding of the world. As The Olympian recently reported, many local girls are working on projects now that range from collecting used musical instruments for students who need them to collecting cell phones for domestic violence survivors.

But now, Rolf Harris is a convicted paedophile drawing the ire of fellow prison inmates who have declared the entertainer a hate figure following a recent prison brawl.
The incident happened during a church service in the chapel at men's prison HMP Bullingdon in Oxfordshire, according to UK media reports. An inmate reportedly tried to spit on Harris.
The spit instead landed on another prisoner, which sparked a punch-up between the inmates, the Daily Mail reported. The 84-year-old Australian was not physically hurt. 
Advertisement [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url]
One prisoner called Rolf a dirty nonce and spat at him, a witness told The Sun. All the others were jeering too, but the spit landed on the bloke next to Rolf, who went berserk.
Rolf stood in a corner while the other prisoner was taken to a segregation unit. Then he just sat back down. He was shaken up, but didn't let on.
Prisoners said it was an attack waiting to happen.
Rolf is a hate figure for many in prison. Attack him, you're going to get some notoriety, one inmate told The Sun.
Harris has applied to British authorities for permission to appeal against [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] his convictions on 12 indecent assaults.
A spokesman for the Judicial Office confirmed lawyers had lodged papers at the Court of Appeal this week.
Harris was convicted on June 30 at Southwark Crown Court of 12 indecent assaults - one on an eight-year-old autograph hunter, two on girls in their early teens and a catalogue of abuse of his daughter's friend over 16 years.
The court will now consider whether to grant permission for him to continue with his appeal bid.
Harris, a family favourite for decades, was finally unmasked during his trial as a predator who was fixated with under-age girls, with jurors told how his 16-year campaign of sex abuse against his daughter's friend haunted her and made her abandon her dreams as he continued to be [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] adored by millions of fans worldwide.
His fall from grace was underlined as he was stripped of a Bafta fellowship and accolades in Australia were removed, and he faces losing his prestigious CBE.
The performer's multimillion-dollar fortune is also at risk from potential compensation claims.
Harris was jailed for five years and nine months for the sex abuse. He is due to serve just under three years for the crimes, which occurred between 1968 and 1986.
Earlier this week, the Attorney General's Office confirmed the sentence would not be referred to the Court of Appeal for being unduly lenient.

Its not a significant savings on Atlanta's part but is a trend that Danny Ferry has followed with free agents during his time with Atlanta. The best example of this was with the four-year $24 million deal signed by in 2013. Korver made $6.7 million with the Hawks last season but that total will drop to $5.2 million during the final year of the deal in 2017. DeMarre Carroll's deal last season also decreased in value while Paul Millsap's was for a straight $9.5 million over each year.
Structuring contracts this way adds more flexibility to the team's cap picture in future years. While all of that added flexibility has yet to pay off for the Hawks as of yet, Ferry has been very cautious and mindful of the situation and this is another example of such.

At the play s centre is Avery, a neurotic, depressive young film boffin (Kevin Hofbauer) with a prodigious gift for movie trivia, whose genius for Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon comes at the expense of social acumen.
He s shown the ropes by an old hand (Ben Prendergast) who still lives at home in his mid-30s and, despite his extroversion and chipper disposition, nurses the agonised opposite inside him. Then there s Rose, the spiky, super-cool projectionist (Ngaire Dawn Fair), oozing sex and scorn and a histrionic mask that only [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-shawl-15]Louis Vuitton Shawl[/url] half-hides her sense of her own emptiness.

The Mountaineers, the Northwest s 108-year-old outdoor education organization, has approximately 1,100 people trained to lead its excursions.But trip leader is not a title the club bestows lightly. Earning this role requires months, and in some cases more than a year, of coursework and outdoor excursions. The requirements differ significantly depending on the activity. The most standard courses are navigation and first aid, said Chris Williams, The Mountaineers leadership development manager. Becoming a hiking leader might go pretty quickly, while an activity that is more technical and has more danger, like climbing, will take longer. Outside formal outings like those offered by The Mountaineers, however, the trip leader designation is easier to come by.The role might naturally fall on the group s most experienced person, the person who organized the trip or, perhaps, even the person who is in the best shape. And the coronation of this leader might even go unsaid, the group just naturally assuming one of its members is the leader.But those assumptions can lead to problems.Mindy Roberts of Tacoma has led trips for The Mountaineers since 2002. In 2009 she was among those cited when the [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] Mount Rainier National Park climbing program won the National Park Service s highest honor for public safety.Roberts says one of the most common traps groups fall into during outdoor trips is what s known as the expert halo. This is the assumption an expert in one thing is also expert in another. Assuming the fastest climber is the best rock climber, or the best skier is the best at assessing avalanche risk, Roberts said. When in reality those are different sets of skills. While a member of a group might clearly be the most expert, that doesn t mean they are best suited to serve as the group leader.Communication, after all, is yet another, different skill. Everybody has a role in leadership, Roberts said. A diverse group, she says, can make better decisions than [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] one expert.Roberts deftly empowers her groups so they feel comfortable speaking up when they have concerns, whether they be about terrain, weather or going too long without a break.Williams warns about people relying too heavily on an expert. They shouldn t take on an activity in which they re inexperienced with the plan of relying on somebody else without their own preparation, she said. There are always lessons to be learned, even for people with ample outdoor histories something that no one should take for granted. While a group of friends who travel regularly together into the backcountry might naturally work well as a team, that s less likely with a group of people whose members are less familiar with one another.So, how do you tell if this group thinks you re the leader?Well, if you organized the trip or you re the one with the reputation for taking regular outdoor excursions, it might just be you.Roberts suggests reading the group s body language. Who are the people turning to with questions?If the group pauses at the trailhead, waiting for you to go first, you just might be the person they think of as the trip leader.So, what should you do?To quickly establish the idea that everybody plays a role in leadership, Roberts said a little humor can go a long way. I might say, I m not getting paid today; somebody else needs to be in charge, Roberts said.And even when she is clearly the group leader she s likely to delegate responsibilities to everybody. These jobs could range from helping access avalanche risk to choosing a restaurant for the post-trip celebration.Roberts and Williams say a good leader ought to know their group and any injuries or ailments that could create trouble during the trip. Like aging jock syndrome, Roberts said, bad back, bad knee, bad thumb. Williams, who is training to become a Mountaineers trip leader for kayaking and scrambling, said it s important that group members feel comfortable sharing injuries and other conditions. You want to be prepared so you aren t totally surprised if one of these things sneaks up on you, Williams said.Roberts said it s also important to establish an expectation for the group. Somebody might be there for the exercise, while somebody else might want to take a lot of pictures, Roberts said. You should establish as a group what will be a successful day. Setting an expectation for leadership is a good idea too. In fact, if a group is going to designate a leader, it s often best to decide on a leadership style first, Roberts said.Is it going to be a democracy? Or are important decisions going to be decided by one person? A dictator style has a role sometimes, Roberts said.There are times when there is only one right decision whether the entire group realizes it or not, such as group members stopping in areas with risk of rock fall, a bear blocking your way or group members walking out onto a cornice.These aren t situations that don t need a vote to determine what action is best. They are times when the group leader should feel comfortable being stern and telling the others what to do.Might this embarrass the others [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/url] a bit or hurt their feeling? Yes. But I d rather mend fences than write a speech for your memorial, Roberts said. Good leaders (whether designated or default) prioritize safety and use a variety of tools to communicate to the group. Roberts said. This isn't always fun, but it's critical.

Two-time Morning Call girls basketball player of the year and Bethlehem Catholic rising [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy Round[/url] senior Kalista Walters has given a verbal commitment to Pittsburgh. She made her decision Sunday, picking the Panthers over Wake Forest and West Virginia.
I definitely wanted something closer to home so that I could still have my family there coming to my games and stuff, Walters said Monday morning. It s a good conference, and it s a really good school academically. It s a good school for pre-med, which is great because I want to do dermatology.
Walters averaged 20.9 points, 9.3 rebounds and 3.3 blocks per game as a junior for Bethlehem Catholic. She led the Golden Hawks to their first Lehigh Valley Conference title and a second straight District 11 Class 3A championship over the winter.

WEST ALLIS聽(WITI) They re made in just about every flavor you can imagine to satisfy your sweet tooth, but Kristen Cumings uses Jelly Belly jelly beans in a very different way.
I never would ve guessed that I would be doing this. It s fun, it s really fun, said Cumings.
She takes the chewy candy many love, to make beautiful works of art.
I was amazed. I was really surprised at how huge the pictures are and when you stand back the animals look almost real, said Eileen Westerfield聽as she watched Cumings work.
This week, Cumings has been working on her latest masterpiece for visitors at the Wisconsin State [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] Fair to watch and enjoy.
Surprisingly, she s not the first Jelly Belly artist in residence.
Jelly Belly has actually had an art program since the 1980s. Peter Rocha was the first artist and he created a picture of Ronald Reagan when he was president, said Cumings.
Currently, she s working on a portrait of a bengal tiger, which is part of a series of pieces she s doing [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] to raise awareness about endangered species.
After painting the image, she uses an all-purpose spray adhesive to begin sticking on the jelly beans.
At the end when it s all filled up with beans, I lay it聽flat and I use a two-part聽epoxy resin that seals and covers all of the beans and it actually has a bit of a UV protectant聽in it to help keep them from fading, said Cumings.
But the tricky part is not eating your art supplies.
It [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] s one for the picture one for the mouth, one for the picture, maybe two for the mouth, said Westerfield.
Now Cumings is inspiring people to make their own Jelly Belly art.
I told her I might take my jelly beans or Jelly Belly s and go home and start it up tonight or this afternoon, said Kathleen Lysaght,聽after talking to Cumings.
Cumings was at the State Fair聽Sunday and聽Monday until 5 p.m.
She says it typically takes her about 100 hours to complete one of聽her Jelly Belly works of art.

Holy Wayne is the real deal. If you reverse-engineer the events of tonight's episode of The Leftovers  "Guest" that's likely the point it was out to prove. He's not just the slimy Brit who accepts off-the-books payments from Congressmen and flees from gun-toting federal troops in between dalliances with his harem of young Asian-American women. Now he's the guy who, it seems, genuinely is capable of supernaturally removing emotional pain an ability he demonstrates on a character we've gotten to know, a character who's lost more than anyone we've met, a character whose pain we've seen play out over the course of the season. Wayne may be the purpose of the episode, but Nora Durst is the focus. Played with alternately icy reserve and fluid fire by Carrie Coon, she's become the most successful embodiment of the series' themes.

Summer TV Smackdown: Our Complete 2014 Watch List
In this episode alone, we see a number of Nora's coping mechanisms at work. They're not pretty, to put it mildly: Week after week, she buys the exact same groceries she bought the week her family disappeared, throwing out unopened boxes of sugary cereals to replace them with new ones but leaving a used-up roll of paper towels intact. Since her brother, the good Reverend Matt Jamison, told her about her departed husband's affair with their kids' nursery school teacher, she's begun stalking her as well. She hires the occasional prostitute [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sneakers-34]Sneakers Louis Vuitton[/url] to shoot her in her bulletproof-vest-clad chest at point-blank range. (It's the episode's corniest scene by a country mile, but as direct demonstrations of emotional distress go, it's certainly effective.) Recognizing her easy chemistry with Chief Kevin Garvey, she propositions him for a spur-of-the-moment getaway to Miami, blurting out "oh, fuck your daughter" when he declines due to family commitments. None of it gets her anywhere.We also see her reject a number of possible paths to closure when she heads to Manhattan for a conference on Departure-related industries. This begins when a bro-tastic bereavement specialist the one who works for the company that makes "Loved Ones" simulacra of departed family members for burials or cremations comes on to her. She enjoys his hospitality suite and his attentions, admitting he's not the soulless creep he might seems, and still chooses to make out with his real-doll doppelganger rather than the genuine douchebag article. Watching Nora writhe atop the mannequin is the series' sexiest moment to date, and no wonder here's a person deriving an erotic charge from the very concept of closure, making a public show of pleasure out of something intended to be a private totem of grief.Next, she [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/loafers-57]Loafers Louis Vuitton[/url] blows up the spot of the activist/conspiracy theorist who impersonates her at the convention, and appears to blow off her warnings about the Department of Sudden Departures. That's harder for the audience to do, of course; when she warns that the DSD's "questionnaires are sent to incinerators outside of Tallahassee, Florida," we know that the government's burning much worse things than that. But she's even harder on Patrick Johansen, the conference's star attraction and author of What Comes Next, a self-help book for "legacies" of the Departed. Calling him a fraud who's faking his grief, she drunkenly screams at him "What's next? What's fucking next? Nothing is next! Nothing!" It's this nihilism that attracts Holy Wayne's acolyte to Nora. He knows she's right about Johansen, because the writer didn't work through his grief at all he had it magically sucked out of him. And when Wayne meets Nora, the healer recognizes that she's not rejecting happiness out of hopelessness, but because she does have hope -- and she wants to get rid of it. "If [your pain] starts to slip away, you seek it out again, don't you?" he asks her, knowing the answer is yes. "Hope. It's your weakness. You want it gone because you don't deserve it." There's a certain strain of depression that internalizes and personifies misfortune, that sees it as the natural state of things, that sees happiness as fraudulent in the face of the shortcomings the depressed person knows better than anyone. This is as accurate an encapsulation of that kind of depression as a TV show is likely to deliver.One hug later and we're back in Mapleton. The nursery-school mistress goes un-stalked. Nora buys groceries for herself, not her missing kids. She's not answering the phone when her brother Matt calls to apologize, but she's not deleting the answering-machine messages either. She even replaces those paper towels. And when Chief Garvey comes to ask her out on a date dinner in Mapleton, not fleeing to Miami she accepts with good cheer rather than impulsiveness. "You should know, though," he adds before leaving, "I'm a fuckin' mess." "Thanks for the heads up!" she replies cheerily, recognizing that shared damage is something they can build upon now that she's not actively stirring up the rubble.

The Best TV of 2014 So Far
Does it all really take, though? That's less clear than the new paper towels and the continued chemistry with Kevin make it seem. The episode leaves us with Nora and a victim of the Departure, the first in Nora's entire career as a DSD agent to answer question #121 ("In your opinion, do you believe the Departed is in a better place?") with a "no." Does this woman sense that Nora can handle this harsh truth, while past interviewees felt she was too fragile? She said she never told them about her own story, but people pick up on things.
Or is there nothing to all this but a coincidence...the same kind of 1-in-128,000 odds that led to Nora losing her entire family while so many people lost no one at all? That's the question no one not [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lunettes-de-soleil-louis-vuitton-35]Lunettes De Soleil Louis Vuitton[/url] Nora, not Wayne, not The Leftovers itself is able to answer.

For Eagles, bigger is better across the boardIncreasing average size of players has been goal since Day 1.Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher, at 6-0, 200 pounds, is an example of (EMILY ROBSON, THE MORNING )August 04, 2014|By Nick Fierro, Of The Morning CallPHILADELPHIA 鈥?At an even 6 feet, Jeremy Maclin has gone from being the largest of the Philadelphia Eagles regular wide receivers to the smallest in a span of two seasons.His position group isn't the only one to experience huge growth since Chip Kelly was named head coach in January 2013, either.Among the multitude of changes Kelly has made to the roster and every other aspect of the football operation was to go for larger perimeter players on both sides of the line of scrimmage. His receivers and cornerbacks are bigger. Ditto for the outside linebackers and the entire defensive line.As Kelly said when he was first hired, "big people beat up little people," and he has gone about the process of re-shaping the team exactly the way he predicted.The team's first "unofficial" depth chart of 2014 was unveiled Monday, and it shows the details. Maclin (6-0) is listed as one of three first-team receivers. Riley Cooper (6-4) and Brad Smith (6-2) are the others. The fourth and continuously ascending receiver is rookie Jordan Matthews, who is 6-3 and plays bigger.At cornerback, Cary Williams (6-1) and Bradley Fletcher (6-0) return as starters, along with safeties Nate Allen (6-1, 210) and newcomer Malcolm Jenkins (6-0, 205).Though any switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defensive base, which is what Kelly implemented upon his arrival, requires larger players throughout the front seven, the [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] size change has been immense. The one-gap defensive tackles from the Andy Reid regime have been replaced by Bennie Logan, who added around 15 pounds in the offseason and rookie Beau Allen (6-2, 333).Two of those one-gap tackles, Fletcher Cox (6-4, 300) and Cedric Thornton (6-4, 310), have been flexed out to ends, replacing former smaller starters Trent Cole (6-3, 270) and Brandon Graham (6-2, 265), who now are outside linebackers, along with first-round draft pick Marcus Smith (6-3, 250), among others.In addition, the Eagles drafted giant-sized defensive end Taylor Hart (6-6, 285) and added free agents Alejandro Villanueva (6-9, 280) and Brandon Bair (6-6, 290) at the same spot.Kelly and his staff know that bigger doesn't necessarily mean better, but the goal was to grow the wingspans at most positions and take their chances.And they like those chances.A lot."It really goes in cycles," defensive coordinator Billy Davis said. [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] "But we here like size and length. That's our philosophy, and that's what we think helps us run the scheme we run. So that's why you're seeing us select bigger players."In that respect, Kelly, hired for his innovations, is just trying to keep up with a literal growing trend.So in addition to the behind-the-scene shortcomings leaked by anonymous sources to the media about the diminutive (and departed) DeSean Jackson (5-10, 175), the fact is that even if Jackson had been a model citizen in every way, he still would not have been a lock to remain an Eagle because of what Kelly is trying to build here.The fact that Cooper, whose racial outburst last year could have polarized the locker room, is still with the team and Jackson is not speaks volumes."This league is continuing to go that way," Kelly said. "When you think two of the best corners, Patrick Peterson, a guy who just signed an outstanding contract, who I think is one of the tops in the league, [and] Richard Sherman probably the two highest-paid guys, probably the two best guys, are both big, physical corners, and they're going to try to beat you up on the line of scrimmage."If you can't get off the line of scrimmage, you're done. I think that's what we're moving towards. I think the corners are getting bigger in this league and the wideouts are getting bigger. That's one of Riley's strengths, his ability to get off that stuff. No one is going to get off clean and just be running down the field with no one around him for four or five yards. When the ball is up, now you have to be able to go get it. Having a 6-4 guy that's 230 pounds, it helps."Kelly has not been totally rigid. In addition, to Jackson, he also kept Damaris Johhnson (5-8) on the team last year, and their prized free-agent addition for this season was tiny running back Darren Sproles (5-6). Alas, Johnson likely will be gone by the end of the summer, and the Eagles will continue to grow at most of their positions.Just the way Kelly envisioned it at the start.He can't wait for his oversized squad to start beating up on some little people in Chicago when they visit the Bears for their preseason opener on Friday night.610-778-2243Featured ArticlesMore:Related LinksRelated ArticlesDecember 12, 2012October 14, 2012July 31, 2014September 22, 2012December 14, 2012Find More Stories About|||Please note the green-lined linked article text has been applied [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton[/url] commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

Frames designed for individual tasks can be attached to the backpack, with some arcing over a person's head like a small crane. As well as boosting raw lifting ability, the suit helps workers manipulate heavy components precisely: it takes most of the weight, so the user is effectively handling light objects.
Chu says worker feedback from the trial has been mostly positive. Testers were pleased that the exoskeleton let them lift heavy objects repeatedly without strain, but everyone also wanted it to move faster and be able to cope with heavier loads. Chu is working on it. "Our current research target of the lifting capacity is about 100 kilograms," he says.
The world's top three shipbuilding firms are South Korean 鈥?Daewoo, Hyundai Heavy Industries and Samsung Heavy Industries 鈥?and their shipyards are already renowned for their level of automation. In a study of the firms' facilities in 2012, US Navy personnel found that five out of the six yards they visited used robots in some capacity. At one shipyard, robots did 68 per cent of all welding as well as carrying out jobs from cutting and grinding steel to polishing freshly assembled hulls, with minimal human oversight.
"At the time, most of the yards we toured were significantly more advanced in robotic welding than the US yards performing naval ship construction, and had been for a long time," Gene Mitchell, the retired US Navy officer who led the research told New Scientist.
All this automation goes into building truly . Daewoo has a $1.9 billion contract from shipping giant Maersk to build 10 55,000-tonne container ships. Each 400 metres in length, with space for 18,000 containers, they will be .
As the industry grows, so too will the need for automation, including robotic suits of the kind Daewoo is experimenting with. The prototypes still have several important kinks to be worked out, though. In tests, workers had a hard time negotiating sloping or slippery surfaces. And the prototypes cannot yet cope with twisting motions, so workers making turns while carrying heavy objects could tire out easily.
Still, Chu is committed. "We've been developing and applying robots and automation in shipbuilding for more than a decade," he says. And if he has his way, humans will soon be effortlessly wielding ship parts that weigh more than they do.

But controversial plans to store the phone and internet records of Australians will be included in a later ''third tranche'' of legislation. The cost of storing and protecting the data is still subject to discussions between the government and telecommunications companies.

Mr Abbott said while the terror threat facing Australia ''hasn't changed'' since the setting of ''medium'' following the September 11, 2001, attacks there is ''heightened concern'' about the threat of a local terror attack.
''Everything that government can reasonably do is being done to ensure our community is safe,'' he said, vowing to leave no stone unturned in ensuring public safety.
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said the measures were needed because ''hardened home-grown terrorists'' who had been radicalised [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Eden[/url] overseas may use their skills to carry out an attack in Australia.
The government is also proposing giving the Foreign Minister a new power to suspend the passports of people ASIO suspects of planning to fight alongside terrorists or returning home from combat.
Mr Abbott also revealed the election promise to repeal section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act would be dumped because ''when it comes to counter-terrorism, everyone needs [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] to be part of Team Australia''.
Ms Bishop said while the concept of Australians fighting abroad was not new, it is posing a greater threat than ever before.
''Preventing Australian citizens from becoming foreign fighters is now one of our highest national security priorities,'' she said.
''To put the threat in context, prior to the NATO-led experience in Afghanistan our intelligence and security agencies were aware of 30 people, Australian citizens, in Afghanistan fighting against the interest of the West; 25 of them came back to Australia.
''Five times that number are of interest to our security and intelligence agencies, so this is a far greater challenge for us in sheer numbers.''
Labor legal affairs spokesman Mark Dreyfus said the opposition had not yet received a briefing on the announcement [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] and would examine it closely.
''There are always concerns when additional powers are given to police and intelligence agencies. We have to make sure that changes to national security laws are informed by Australian values, which are the values of a free and democratic society,'' Mr Dreyfus said.

Kansas Jayhawks center Joel Embiid celebrates after scoring in the first half of a February 22, 2014, game against the Texas Longhorns. Photo | Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports
As a fan, you want to believe the Sixers .
But it s hard. This is Philadelphia, after all, and you ve gotten burned so many times before. In 1993, the Sixers took Shawn Bradley over Penny Hardaway and Jamal Mashburn. In 1994, they took Sharone Wright at No. 6 鈥斅燼nd ended up picking in the No. 3 and No. 1 spots the next two seasons. One year the Sixers took聽 鈥斅爄n baseball. Between 1999 and 2003, the best player the Sixers drafted was Samuel Dalembert. The Sixers had the No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft and took Evan Turner, who had just completed one of the best college seasons of all time. He was a disappointment here.



The Sixers' new brain trust is in its second year on the job, and they are not responsible for picks like Ji艡铆 Welsch (taken 16th in 2002, immediately traded for a future first round pick) or Speedy Claxton (an ostensible Iverson replacement taken in 2001 who missed his entire first year with an injury). But each NBA Draft always leaves you memories of getting burned in years past. The nature of basketball allows one player to alter a franchise's history, and in my lifetime the Sixers have acquired one (1) such player in the draft, Allen Iverson.
Put this in the Sixers favor: Whatever you think about the merits of tanking, the Sixers did a bang-up job of it. In just one season, general manager Sam Hinkie and the front office completely re-did the roster. 鈥?if the [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/url] two wanted to come here, the team could sign LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony this offseason. The team turned Jrue Holiday into Nerlens Noel, Dario 艩ari膰, a second-round pick next year and a first-round pick in 2017. That's incredible 鈥斅爑nless Noel and Saric are stiffs, in which case it's just sad.
The Sixers' draft last night showed that this tanking plan isn't over (though they'll likely be better next year). For the third straight season, , the team acquired an injured big man. This time it was Kansas center Joel Embiid, who 鈥斅燽efore needing surgery on his foot right before the draft 鈥?appeared to be the consensus No. 1 overall pick. It's the exact same situation as last year, when the team acquired an injured Nerlens Noel, who sat out the first season. Embiid is a 7-footer who has been compared to Hakeem Olajuwon. But he also missed the NCAA tournament this year with a stress fracture in his back, and now had surgery to fix .
The good thing is that the Sixers know how to bring along a rookie who's essentially redshirting his first season. They did it just last year with Noel. The bad thing, if you like to see your basketball team win, is that Embiid is unlikely to contribute much this year. (He needs at least a few months after foot surgery.) Their second first-round pick won't contribute either. The Sixers swapped the 10th pick to the Magic for the 12th to get 20-year-old Dario 艩ari膰 and picked up a first-round pick way down the line (2017) and a second-rounder next year to boot. 艩ari膰, a 6-foot-10 power forward from Croatia, . He's expected to stay with powerhouse Anadolu [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/url] Efes for two seasons.
The Sixers acquired an incredible five players in the second round of this year's draft. Two seem ready to play right away: Clemson's K.J. McDaniels, a 6' 6" swingman who's an off-the-charts [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/url] athlete, and they also picked up defensive wizard Jerami Grant from Syracuse. These are two players who could have been taken in the late first round, but the Sixers scooped them up on more team-friendly deals. The team also acquired Tennessee's Jordan McRae, who was in the NCAA last season. (The team also, oddly enough, picked Louisville's Russ Smith 鈥?another efficient player 鈥?but shipped him to the Pelicans for Pierre Jackson. The Sixers had selected Jackson last year and traded him to the Pellys; he scored a record 58 points in one D-League game last year.) The Sixers also got Serbia's Vasilije Micic, who they'll be stashing overseas. And, who knows! There could still be more moves.
Yes, the Sixers appear prepared for another season of big losses (and, hopefully, two wins over the Heat again). But they also took incredible prospects who dropped because of reasons unrelated to their play on the court. If Noel, Embiid and 艩ari膰 are the NBA's most fearsome frontcourt in a few years, Sam Hinkie will look like a genius. The Sixers have a ton of unproven guys right now 鈥?but the one player they picked last season who actually played for them turned out to be the Rookie of the Year. It's intriguing. You want to believe.
But it's also the Sixers, and fans are used to disappointment. Is this the start of a new era, or just more of the same? Can it be 2016 already so we can start to find out?

The total number of working-age (16 to 65) immigrants (legal and illegal) holding a job in Tennessee increased by 94,000 from the first quarter of 2000 to the first quarter of 2014, while the number of working-age native-born Americans with a job declined 47,000 over the same time.
The fact that all the long-term net gain in employment among the working-age went to immigrants is striking because the native-born accounted for 60 percent of the increase in the total size of [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] the state's working-age population.
In the first quarter of this year, only 66 percent of working-age natives in the state held a job. As recently as 2000, 72 percent of working-age natives in Tennessee were working.
Because the native-born population in Tennessee grew significantly, but the percentage working fell, there were nearly 300,000 more working-age natives not working in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000.
There exists a very large supply of potential workers in Tennessee; in the first quarter of 2014, 1.3 million working-age natives were not working (unemployed or entirely out of the labor market) as were 90,000 working-age immigrants.
While the share of working-age natives holding a job has improved in Tennessee somewhat since the jobs recovery began in 2010, the share working showed no improvement in the last year.
Relative to other states, Tennessee ranked 30th in the nation in terms of the share of working-age natives holding a job in the first quarter of 2014.
In terms of the labor-force participation rate (share working or looking for work) among working-age natives, the state ranked 35th in the nation.
Two key conclusion from the state's employment situation:
First, the long-term decline in the employment of natives in Tennessee [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] and the enormous number of working-age natives not working clearly indicates that there is no general labor shortage in the state. Thus it is very difficult to justify the large increases in foreign workers (skilled and unskilled) allowed into the country by a bill like S.744, which many of Tennessee's politicians support.
Second, Tennessee's working-age immigrant population grew 176 percent from 2000 to 2014, one of the highest rates of any state in the nation. Yet, the number of natives working in 2014 was actually lower than in 2000. This undermines the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] argument that immigration on balance increases job opportunities for natives.
"It's remarkable that any political leader in Tennessee would support legislation that would increase the number of foreign workers allowed into the country, given the relatively weak job growth in the state and the large share of working-age people not working," observed Steven Camarota, the Center's Director of Research.
The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit research organization founded in 1985. It is the nation's only think tank devoted exclusively to research and policy analysis of the economic, social, demographic, fiscal, and other impacts of immigration on the United States.

Their 2013 percentage of 54.1 was the seventh worst of any side since World War II. Included in the six teams ''ahead'' of them in that list were the first two offerings of the GWS Giants, and Fitzroy's tragic final season. The only way was up for Melbourne.
When a club emerges from an era as soul-destroying as that of Neeld, it will cop losses somewhere between honourable and disappointing, so long as it never materialises into the horridness experienced not long ago.
The figure of  54.1 has risen to 72.8, and the wins have doubled from two to four. Roos' outfit is a more challenging side to topple than the one which Neeld and later Neil Craig guided last year. The coach's pre-occupation with absorbing opposition forays has meant that Melbourne has conceded fewer points than top-eight aspirants Adelaide and the Gold Coast, and if you want to throw them in for good measure, Richmond.
Yet through 19 rounds of 2014, the Demons lie 17th on the ladder. Below the Blues, the Bulldogs, and the Giants. Also below the Brisbane Lions, an admittedly in-form unit, but one that fought back from a 14-point final stanza deficit to prevail by nearly four goals. The Lions' comeback was built upon the power forward pairing of Daniel McStay and Michael Close. Franklin and Tippett it was not.
In his coaching life, Roos has tended to be a winner. In eight completed seasons at Sydney, he steered the Swans into seven finals series. He has an aura about him, surpassed by few in [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-mahina-cuir-65]LV Mahina cuir[/url] the game. To preserve that aura he will need to conjure up something special.
It's hard to know [with] each individual why, but I think there's clearly some that might not be able to get over what's happened here in the past, Roos said after the game, pondering whether some of his charges had developed an irrevocably defeatist mindset.
Just who are these players potentially incapable of ever getting their heads around the concept of winning consistently? Regrettably there are no shortage of contenders. Only those on the inside will know exactly what these players feel and think when an opening for four points emerges.
Of the group that sank to a 19th straight defeat at Docklands on Sunday (that's 3.7 kilometres or 10minutes' drive from the MCG without traffic for those Demons fans wondering), only two (Chris Dawes and Aidan Riley) have played in more victories than losses during their AFL careers.
There were 11 players in the Melbourne lineup that have both [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-toile-monogram-67]LV Toile Monogram[/url] played more than 50 games, and won no more than 26 per cent of them. When half of a side could be described as an institutionalised loser, is it any wonder that the coach thinks that a fair few may never be able to break the tag.
Roos last week committed for 2016, meaning that he now has just over two years to reform the culture. His comments on Sunday suggest that it will be in his role as an amateur shrink that the success or failure of his tenure will turn.

Adorned with tiny hard hats and equipped with miniature shovels, Kids Kare Schools had students break ground last week for their newest location at 2683 E. Alluvial Ave. in Clovis.Jeanne DelaCerda has been with Kids Kare Schools for 36 years, most recently as its executive director. She said with commercial developments being built near the new location, parents already have signed up their children. The facility isn't [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] expected to open until December."When I first started here, there were only five centers, now we're up to 12," DelaCerda said.Kids Kare Schools enrolls children ages 18 months to 12 years. It has served Fresno, Clovis and Madera for more than 55 years.The new location will add 30 jobs ranging from bus drivers to cooks to teachers, said James Fisher, owner of Kids Kare. It will be able to accommodate up to 172 children.A unique feature, DelaCerda added, is that this center will be certified for toddlers, as well. Innovation sets Kids Kare apart, DelaCerda said, noting that the children use iPads in the classroom.Fisher said the demand for Kids Kare is increasing. However, he said that Fresno is seeing a shift in the child care business."The environment is changing. Parents are struggling more and more to make ends meet; they see child care up there with their mortgage," Fisher said. The state is subsidizing day care for more children now. "Fifteen years ago, it was all paying customers."Kids Kare's capacity across all locations is about 1,660 children a number Fisher said the business comes close to hitting in the fall.One point that sets the Alluvial Avenue location apart from others, Fisher said, is that the company will [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] be catering to a more affluent customer base.Some parents shuttle their children to farther Kids Kare locations. With the new space, Fisher said, many kids will transfer closer, opening spots at the other 11 locations.For more about Kids Kare Schools, go to .Local computer service company switches gearsA local computer service company will use the O-word.But president and chief executive officer J.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. avoids pileup, wins GoBowling.com 400 at Pocono RacewayDale Earnhardt Jr. celebrates a sweep at Pocono this year after his victory (CHRIS SHIPLEY, SPECIAL )August 03, 2014|By Paul Reinhard, Special to The Morning CallAnd just like that, 0-for-28 has turned into 2-for-2 for Dale Earnhardt Jr.The most popular driver on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series says that nothing in his life matters if he doesn't perform well on Sundays, which means that twice a year for the past 14 years he left Pennsylvania in a bad frame of mind.He could certainly never say that Pocono Raceway had been very good for him."To be honest I did not like coming here, whether I was running good or bad; it just wasn't one of my favorite spots," he admitted Sunday. "I've had some hard days here."Not anymore. Especially, not in 2014.After winning a race in June that he thought maybe he didn't deserve, he came back with a stronger car this time around.He combined the added speed with spot-on pit strategy after what may have been the biggest wreck in NASCAR's 40 years at the Long Pond track, took the lead for the first time with only 14 laps left and went on to win the GoBowling.com 400 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event and post the first season sweep at Pocono since Denny Hamlin won twice in 2006."I guess it's easy to say after winning two races, but he's made this a fun stop," Earnhardt said in praising the passion and the performance of Brandon Igdalsky, the chief executive officer at Pocono and grandson of the track's founder, Dr. Joe Mattioli.Earnhardt racked up his third win of the season, which is also turning into kind of a victory tour for his crew chief, Steve Letarte, who is leaving the team at the end of the season to go into the television booth at NBC.Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, Kurt Busch and Joey Logano all seemed to have strong cars in what had all the ingredients for the most competitive NASCAR event at Pocono in some time.But it really got interesting when, while the field was bunched up after one caution period and charged into the first turn on a restart, a car in the middle got loose and touched off a chain of events that is more typical of restrictor-plate races at Daytona or Talladega. Thirteen cars were involved, and it accounted for the longest caution period of the race.During that period, Letarte decided to bring Earnhardt's car to the pits before its scheduled time, taking four tires and filling with fuel. So, a bit later when the other fast cars had to make their last stops under green, Earnhardt needed only a two-second fuel splash, which allowed him to get back into the fight.Another caution bunched the field, and Earnhardt, fourth on the restart, picked off two cars on one lap and then got Greg Biffle for the lead, which he never relinquished.Kevin Harvick, who made a great comeback after getting into the wall after avoiding the 13-car crash, had a late shot at Earnhardt's National Guard Chevrolet, but he didn't have the power and had to settle for second place, with Logano finishing third."I was going to need him to slip up in Turn 1 and try to get position in Turn 2," Harvick said. That did not happen.Earnhardt and Letarte are in their fourth year together, and that partnership coincides [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] with a definite upgrade in Earnhardt's races at Pocono. After having just six top-10 finishes in his first 11 years in the Sprint Cup Series, he has had seven in eight races with Letarte calling the shots."Steve's strategy was perfect at the end [Sunday], and I don't know if anybody knew what was going on but that was pretty awesome," Earnhardt said. "It takes a really, really smart guy to understand what to do to take those gambles.""Well, I'd like to take the credit, but it's a whole group effort," Letarte said. "The engineers up here really helped me with some good decisions they noticed earlier from a couple of guys. We managed it well, drove some good laps."Gordon, coming off an impressive Brickyard 400 victory, may have had the best car in the field all day. He was the leader at seven 10-lap marks during the race, but he had problems on one restart late and couldn't overcome them while finishing sixth."We had the dominant car, but you had to have track position and there at the end we didn't have it," Gordon said. "With Dale getting out in front of us there in that pit sequence, there was nothing we could do."Harvick, who started sixth, didn't figure into the run for the win after getting a pass-through penalty for speeding on pit road, but he did manage to make up that deficit and when all was said and done, he clinched [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Delightful[/url] his spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship with his runner-up finish.PIT STOPS: This marks the second time Earnhardt has posted a track sweep, with the other coming at Talladega in 2002. Hendrick Motorsports has now won the last five NASCAR Sprint Cup events at Pocono. Gordon led more laps than any driver, 63. ... Chevrolet took six of the top 10 spots in the GoBowling.com 400, with Toyota and Ford getting two each Earnhardt collected $193,265 from a total purse of $5,092,151.Retired sports columnist Paul Reinhard is a freelance writer.Featured ArticlesMore:Related LinksRelated ArticlesJune 8, 2013August 2, 2010August 4, 2012August 6, 2012July 5, 2014Find More Stories About|||Please note the green-lined linked article text has been applied commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

Labor leader Bill Shorten will launch a five-week campaign this week on the theme that Prime Minister Tony Abbott is a ''liar''.
The campaign marks a year since the 2013 federal election campaign in which Mr Abbott toppled Kevin [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Eden[/url] Rudd after having successfully weakened Julia Gillard, largely over her ''lie'' on the carbon tax. Mr Shorten will announce a new lie he will attribute to Mr Abbott every day until September 7.
Advertisement
It will kick off with Mr Abbott's remark, made on August 5 last year, that the Coalition was on a ''unity ticket'' with Labor on the Gonski schools funding package. The government has since flagged an [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] end to Gonski and wound back education funding to the states in the budget.
Mr Shorten will also focus on promises not to increase the tax burden - another promise dispensed with in the budget - and Mr Abbott's declaration that there would be ''no cuts to health''.
Labor will even claim that Mr Abbott lied in promising a ''no surprises, no excuses government''. On election day, Mr Abbott said: ''Should the Coalition win the election, I think the most inspiring thing I could do for people is actually keep our commitments.''
Mr Shorten said: ''No political leader [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] has broken promises so shamelessly as Tony Abbott. On schools, on hospitals, on pensions and on taxes, Tony Abbott promised one thing before the election and did the complete opposite after the election.
''Labor won't let the Prime Minister get away with his broken promises. His lies are hurting too many Australians.''

While the U.S. Federal Communications Commission is still rewriting rules, wireless carriers have quietly built defacto mobile Internet fast lanes. 鈥淯nlimited鈥?features have been introduced by mobile providers [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] in recent months through a practice known as "zero rating" or "sponsored data," which offers the ability to use select apps and services without counting against metered data plans.
Sprint Corp. (NYSE:S) is the latest to provide such services through the introduction of a Virgin Mobile that allows users to connect only to Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), Instagram or Pinterest. But for an additional fee, users will also be able to connect to all four apps and a select streaming music service such as Pandora (NYSE:P). While Sprint is the latest carrier to offer such a plan, it is by no means the first in the United States.
T-Mobile Inc. (NYSE:TMUS) introduced a similar benefit called in June, which allows subscribers to listen to as much music as they want from popular streaming services, which the carrier picks from partnerships or user requests. AT T Inc. (NYSE:T) launched its own initiative in January called , which allows its mobile users to stream select videos, browse websites and use certain apps without counting against a user鈥檚 data package. Canada鈥檚 also offers a package that provides unmetered data usage of its television streaming service without impacting a user鈥檚 data limit.
Yet, even before North American wireless carriers began offering such services, content providers and social networks were already experimenting with the practice in Europe and emerging markets. Twitter quietly forged partnerships in [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] 2012 through Twitter Access, a program that provides subsidized access to the microblogging site in countries with expensive mobile data costs, 聽reported. Twitter鈥檚 currently lists Vodafone (NASDAQ:VOD) and Philippines鈥?Smart Communications among its partners.
Facebook also experimented with a similar program called in 2010, which provided a free stripped down Facebook experience to select mobile carrier users.
On the surface, it would seem this would be beneficial for mobile subscribers as it allows them to consume more content without the worries of exceeding data limits or incurring overage charges. But their introduction to the mobile marketplace draws concerns over the potential side effect of creating a tiered mobile Internet where the apps and content provided through these partnerships effectively breeze through in unlimited fast lanes while nonsponsored data content is relegated to users鈥?limited monthly bandwidth.
Pal [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] Zarandy, senior partner at , a Helsinki consulting firm specializing in mobile Internet policies, criticized the practice, especially in countries where the per gigabyte cost is expensive.
鈥淣ot counting data of specific services like mobile video and cloud storage/computing becomes discriminatory and harmful when the consumption of 鈥榞eneric鈥?Internet gigabytes is overpriced or conversely the volume caps for generic Internet access is overly restrictive,鈥?Zarandy told International Business Times via email.
As for why consumers haven鈥檛 noticed this growing trend with U.S. wireless carriers, Zarandy speculated U.S. carriers are testing the waters with less data-intensive apps and content.
鈥淚n Europe the biggest telcos started zero-rating video and cloud storage services, in the U.S. this is not really happening yet,鈥?Zarandy said. 鈥淢aybe [carriers] are testing the waters [public and regulatory reception] first with less volume-heavy services [that is: the less strikingly discriminatory ones].鈥?
Carriers such as Verizon (NYSE:VZ) Wireless have also caught the attention of the FCC regarding mobile data after it announced plans to聽, or slow down, data of its unlimited 4G LTE subscribers.
Until the FCC finalizes its proposed net neutrality rules, it鈥檚 unknown whether such practices will continue to be permitted in the future.

It was said that at the end of last week, the power couple have met up with their lawyers to make a statement addressing the rumors, but they can't seem to [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] agree on what it would say.
For now, the pair is struggling to get on with their tour - it will move from Los Angeles to San Francisco, where they are due to perform Monday evening.
A source for the  also said that both feared that they may break up before the tour finale next month, in the city of lights.
The source told the Post: "This may not make it to San Francisco. I'm definitely not sure that they'll make it to Paris.
"There are lawyers that have [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] now joined the tour, and they're not here just to see them perform. They are here to help hash things out.
"They're not just staying in different hotel rooms, but they have booked separate hotels, and they arrive separately to each show."
It seems that the couple may not last long, because other than what the insider said to the Post, Beyonce was also seen viewing an apartment in the Chelsea district in Manhattan, which sparked speculations that she wants some time away from the family home in TriBeCa.
Jay Z is also adamant about not putting himself in a bad light. The source for the Post also said, "They've had discussions lately about the inevitable sit-down interview when they finally do split, and Jay's been adamant that he doesn't want Beyonc sitting down with Barbara Walters or [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton[/url] Oprah Winfrey pretending to be the victim."
But as far as spats with spouses go, there is no news regarding their on-stage images. Just last Wednesday, the couple was seen snuggling during a concert in Seattle.
News can unravel so far, so fast, but what do you think of the power couple's impending split? Would they really get a divorce, or will their seemingly-amazing love conquer all?

MILWAUKEE (WITI) After 13 people are shot in the last three days, city leaders in Milwaukee are speaking out on plans to curb the violence. Mayor Tom Barrett says more patrols will be out, but some are saying that s just not good enough.
What we re going to be doing this year is we re going to be very proactive. There s going to be a lot of overtime, quite honestly, and police are going to be targeting those areas where they are seeing the most activity, said Barrett.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David says the mayor and police chief should hire a minimum of 300 to 500 more officers and put [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] them on the streets.
This聽whack-a-mole [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] strategy of increasing police presence only after a high-profile incident occurs to give the appearance something will be done only to leave after a few days, allows the criminals to return and once again dominate the neighborhood, said Clarke.
Milwaukee police promised a larger presence near 34th and Hadley after two children were shot in crossfire at the end of July. The victims were traveling in a van with seven kids in all.
Police now say they have arrested suspects in that shooting as well as another shooting near N. 27th and Hope. A woman at a bus stop was hit in the leg during that incident.
You have to have more cops. All the Milwaukee police officers are going today is going from one call to the next call, said Clarke.
Mayor Barrett says citizens will see [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] more officers on the streets this month, but they will be working on overtime. He will not be adding more positions within the force.
It s something we re taking very, very seriously. I spoke to the chief on Friday and we discussed this. He understands, and I understand, how important it is to have this strong presence because every single neighborhood in this city deserves to be a safe neighborhood, said Barrett.
Sheriff Clarke also pointed out a news conference today was simply about safety and had nothing to do with the Sheriff s race election next week.

A: When dealing with a new boss, 鈥渃onfront鈥?is a dangerous word to use. Even if Gwen鈥檚 changes are misguided, an adversarial approach will only damage your relationship with her. New managers always have fresh ideas, and they tend to regard critics as obstructive and resistant to change.
Nor should you volunteer to 鈥渓et her know how everyone feels,鈥?because that will make [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-siracusa-75]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] you look like a rabble-rouser. If the whole group is upset, then the whole group needs to discuss the problem. The key, however, is not to focus on feelings, but to explain the business issue.
For example: 鈥淕wen, we want you to know [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-wilshire-76]Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] that we appreciate the experience you bring from your previous store. However, learning so many new procedures at once has been difficult and has slowed our service to customers. Do you think we could have a meeting to review all the changes, then wait a few weeks before making any more?鈥?
If your concerns are presented in a supportive, helpful manner, Gwen might actually listen. But if you begin criticizing her leadership style, you will only start an argument that you are undoubtedly going to lose.

FX premieres Partners鈥攕tarring Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence鈥攐n Monday Aug. 4, 9 p.m. ET with two back-to-back episodes. The following are reviews from TV critics around the web, compiled by B C.
鈥淟ike Anger Management, featuring Charlie Sheen, the show itself is practically an afterthought, inasmuch as it鈥檚 designed to feel like an instant rerun 鈥?something that can help fill the sitcom-starved syndication pipeline. But yikes, watching these two comedy veterans trying to keep such a leaky, woefully flat vehicle afloat is more depressing than [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] nostalgic.鈥?br>
鈥擝rian Lowry, 
鈥淎 forced setup doesn鈥檛 necessarily doom a sitcom, and no sitcom with Grammer and Lawrence lacks potential. The first episodes have problems, though, including the biggest one [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] in the whole sitcom world. Too often Partners feels like it鈥檚 being written to the jokes, not the characters.鈥?br>
鈥擠avid Hinckley, 
鈥淭here is great chemistry between old pros Lawrence and Grammer, even if the scripts are spotty and feel about 20 years old, same-sex marriage references notwithstanding. Of course, it's great to see Grammer back in the sitcom harness.鈥?br>
鈥擠avid Wiegand, 
"Partners, by contrast, feels like some crusty vaudeville relic that was propped up, given a couple shots of cheap booze, then pushed onto a stage and told to perform. Failure is a given 鈥?or in this case earned, because it not only manages to insult Catholics in the first episode, but gays in the second. That kind of equal opportunity denigration is rare, even by primetime standards.鈥?br>
鈥擵erne Gay, 
鈥淭he new FX sitcom Partners might have you doubting your own memory. The series, which stars Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence, is so labored and unfunny that you may find yourself asking: 鈥榃asn鈥檛 Frasier sharp and urbane? Didn鈥檛 Martin have some spunk? Where are those two guys?鈥欌€?br>

The attacker wounded about 15 others, of whom roughly half were Americans, one official said.
A man dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire on foreign troops at Camp Qargha, a base west of the capital, Kabul.
A German brigadier general was among the wounded.
Gen. Mohammmad Zahir Azimi, a spokesman for Afghanistan's Defense Ministry, said a "terrorist in an army uniform" opened fire on both local and international troops.

We asked our local talk show hosts (and one non-resident who's dedicated to dissecting local politics) what they think about the potential Seattle Park District.
Tom Tangney:
KIRO Radio's Tom Tangney is a native Seattleite who rides Metro buses everywhere (he doesn't have a driver license) and loves to critique films. He co-hosts the weekdays 9-12 p.m.
"As park funding ballot measures go, Proposition 1 is a little trickier than most, at least for those of us on the left. Normally, anything to do [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] with parks is a slam dunk. This time out, support comes with a cost, and I don't just mean financially.
"The best thing about Prop. 1 is that it establishes a steadier stream of financial support for our parks, which is almost always a good thing for a liberal. But it does so at the expense of considerable citizen input, something that Seattle activists don't give up lightly. By making this newly created Metropolitan Park District work at the behest of the Seattle City Council, average citizens won't have as much control over where the money would go as they do now with the once-every-six-years levy system.
"The problem with the present system, though, is that it's not working very well. Thanks to the inadequate support from the present levy, the city now has a huge parks maintenance backlog ($267 million). Establishing the Metro Park District would almost immediately double revenue for the parks, with property taxes jumping from 19 cents to 33 cents per $1,000 of assessed value. (It could jump as high as 75 cents, but the Council insists it's sticking to the 33-cent mark.) Seattle parks need that money.
"In the end, I decided that Prop. 1 is a lot like the vote on the Seattle Commons park in 1995. Back then, in a close vote, a coalition of the far left and the anti-tax crowd scuttled a grand visionary approach to our fair city, a park that would have stretched from downtown all the way to Lake Union. It remains one of the worst decisions Seattle voters ever made. Creating a Metro Park Board has none of the majesty of the Seattle Commons project but I hope this is one parks vote that survives another mini-revolt on the left."
Jason Rantz:
KIRO Radio's Jason Rantz lives in Seattle's South Lake Union neighborhood, loves to use rideshare and attend rock shows and Sounders matches. Rantz hosts the weeknights 7-10 p.m.
"I think parks and open space can be a very important part of a community, but this particular plan gives entirely too much power to the City Council to tax Seattlites without actually hearing from us. There's little accountability with Prop. 1 and I don't trust councilmembers like Mike O'Brien to work on behalf of all our community members (just special interests)." Read more of Jason's opinion
Dori Monson:
KIRO Radio's Dori Monson actually doesn't live in Seattle, but (weekdays 12-3 p.m.) is dedicated to dissecting local politics. Dori has three children and is a heavy parks [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] user.
"I grew up in the city and have spent an enormous amount of time in Seattle parks. This parks proposal is insane - but the insanity of Seattle residents' insatiable desire to tax themselves is one of the reasons I moved out of the city.
Right now, for the owner of a $500,000 home in Seattle, the parks tax can be as much as $95/yr. If this proposal passes, that will skyrocket to as much as $375/yr. And overseeing that taxing authority will be an unelected newly created board. Unlike a [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK[/url] levy, where the voters can demand accountability, if Prop One passes the voters will have no say going forward in how much they're taxed and how the money is spent.
And, like most taxes, the parks tax isn't about its stated purpose (maintaining our parks). It's about shoring up a government bureaucracy that is out of control. There are 25 Seattle Parks employees making over $100,000/yr.
Beautiful parks are part of a great city. But Seattle homeowners are already taxed plenty. City leaders should prioritize parks with the massive amount of tax money they already collect. If I still lived in the city, I'd be a no vote. But, as I said, Seattle voters seem to never see a tax they don't love."

The full proposition reads:
The City of Seattle Proposition 1 concerns formation of the Seattle Park District, a metropolitan park district.
This proposition would create a metropolitan park district under Chapter 35.61 RCW, called the Seattle Park District, to fund, maintain, operate and improve parks, community centers, pools, and other recreation facilities and programs. Its boundaries would be the City of Seattle's boundaries and its board would comprise the Seattle City Councilmembers. The District could levy property taxes, currently limited to 75锟?per $1,000 of valuation; and could contract with the City to perform certain functions.
Ballots are due Tuesday, Aug. 5.

in 2012 the company is reportedly looking at other markets where it could expand that model.
According to the , candidates include Japan and Turkey, two countries with good broadband infrastructure and where HBO doesn t generate a lot of revenue from licensing its programming.
The paper notes that HBO s international business accounts for about one-quarter of the company s $4.9 billion in annual revenue and growing. Overall, however, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] it s still comparably small next to mature pay-TV markets like the US, giving HBO some leeway to experiment without upsetting the status quo.
The company already streams its programming over the internet via the HBO [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] Go app to people in the US and elsewhere, so long as they are subscribed to the network through a traditional cable company. A standalone web-centric version remains elusive but it s likely in the long-term radar -- it needs to be as video content competition increases from online services such as Netflix.
Expanding its web-only service could [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] be used as a trial run to see how this might eventually work in the US. In the meantime, the company isn t too concerned about people with non-subscribers (they say it s good marketing), and you can get in some markets with HBO bundled in.

If the Melbourne Football Club s attempt five years ago to lose games for early draft choices did not already sit high on the long list of the game s most haunting cautionary tales, then Paul Roos confirmed its place on Sunday.
The Demons practices of 2009 seemed initially successful but proved ultimately disastrous. That is well documented.
Roos didn t explicitly say so after his side s capitulation against the Brisbane Lions at Etihad Stadium on Sunday, but he spoke ominously and emotionally about there being a reason behind the skill errors, the breakdown in stoppages and kick-ins. A reason behind a team that was waiting to get beaten .
At some point, Roos will stop talking about the past. He surely realises there is a fine line [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton SC Bag[/url] between referring to the sins of those who came before him and erasing it from the conversation altogether.
Advertisement
But to give him the benefit of the doubt and premiership coaches with reputations like his deserve that clearly he believes that talking about a problem sometimes cannot be a bad thing.
Only six days earlier, Melbourne chief executive Peter Jackson spoke of the club s toxic culture and how this was not something that could be eradicated in one year. Jackson was referring to Roos contract extension.
But as Roos handles that delicate balancing act of surgically rebuilding Melbourne and its scarred footballers scars that appear to have deepened during the short but ugly Mark Neeld era the good news is that tanking appears to have been removed from the AFL narrative this season.
There will always be an incentive to finish on the bottom of the ladder as long as the draft moves forward in its current form. But no team will come close to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] qualifying under the commission s new discretionary powers to hand out priority draft choices this year and no team intends to ask. While three teams, including Melbourne, appear to be in contention for the wooden spoon, recruiters appear divided as to who is the No.1 draft choice anyway. And all those bottom teams including StKilda and Greater Western Sydney have achieved at least one genuine scalp in 2014.
As bad a game as Melbourne and Brisbane dished at the weekend, there was no sentiment among the audience or those behind the glass that this was a game either would have preferred to lose.
Certainly Roos appeared taken aback in his disappointment. It is worth remembering that he was sitting on the Fox Footy couch the night Brock McLean spoke of and ultimately blew the whistle on the tanking affair an affair that led to football director Chris Connolly leaving Melbourne, former coach Dean Bailey being suspended, and the club heavily fined. If McLean spoke honestly about that whole unfortunate period and the effect it had on him, then he cannot have been alone in his sentiments even if he was the only one to speak up.
Roos appears [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Sistina[/url] to still be learning about the aftershock of setting up teams to lose when at the same time setting standards to win.
The other club to have adopted this unfortunate and unsporting process almost as blatantly and escaped penalty was Carlton, and it did the Blues and those who were there at the time no favours either.
Clearly Roos misread the extent of the damage at Melbourne, but the fact he has agreed to stick around to try to fix it cannot only be about a lucrative contract. Nor does it seem to be about excuses any more.
This is good news for Melbourne, as was his tough call on those players he pointedly stated on Sunday might not be able to get over the past. This is not an indictment on Roos nor the players, but those who masterminded the clumsy tanking strategy in the first place and those who stood by and allowed it to happen.

WASHINGTON (August 4, 2014) The U.S. government is closing emergency shelters at military bases in Texas, Oklahoma and California used to provide temporary housing for unaccompanied immigrant children caught crossing the border.
U.S. Health and Human Services spokesman Kenneth Wolfe [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] says operations at the shelters will soon be suspended because fewer child immigrants have been caught at the border and the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] government has expanded capacity at other shelters.
A shelter at Fort Sill, Okla., is expected to close by Friday.
Shelters shelter at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland and in California at the Naval Base Ventura [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] County-Port Hueneme will wrap up operations within the next two to eight weeks.
The shelters have housed a combined 7,700 immigrant children since opening in May and early June.

Mr Xie, 50, has pleaded not guilty to five counts of murder. He is married to Kathy Lin, who is Mr Lin s sister.
In his opening address in the NSW Supreme Court on Tuesday, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-speedy-73]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] senior Crown prosecutor Mark Tedeschi, QC, said the horrendous injuries inflicted on the three adults and the degree of damage to their faces shows this was a crime motivated by intense bitterness and hatred .
Advertisement
The assailant used a hammer-like object attached to his wrist by a rope. The victims were killed by repeated blows to the head and four of the five were also asphyxiated.
The three adults were killed in their beds while they were asleep or just awoken, but there was a furious struggle with the two boys in their bedroom, the forensic evidence shows, Mr Tedeschi said.
Post-mortem reports showed Henry survived for about 30 minutes after the attack and Terry was alive for up to two hours before he succumbed to extensive injuries to his head and neck.
Nothing was stolen, including $1400 in cash in Min s wallet, and none of the five victims had been sexually assaulted, Mr Tedeschi said.
The power had been switched off and the killer did not force [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-siracusa-75]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] his way in but used a key. He was able to navigate his way around the house in darkness, knew which victims slept in which bedroom and didn t even go to the bedroom usually occupied by another female because he knew she was away.
A previous trial that began in May "did not proceed very far", Justice Peter Johnson told the 15 jurors.
Min, known as Norman, and Yun Li, known as Lily, owned and ran a local newsagency in Epping called the Epping Central Newsagency. Irene was a student at Macquarie University.
Mr Tedeschi said there was no issue that the five members of the Lin family were killed and that their killer intended to cause their deaths.
The real issue for you in this trial is has the Crown satisfied you beyond reasonable doubt that it was the accused Robert Xie that was the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-wilshire-76]Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] person who murdered these five people, Mr Tedeschi said.
The opening address continues.

When Angel Pagan first injured his back playing for the San Francisco Giants almost two months ago, he originally hoped for a speedy recovery.But the pressure to get back into the starting lineup only led to more problems for the 31-year-old outfielder."It's been crazy," he said Monday afternoon before a rehab appearance with the Fresno Grizzlies."I was working to get back as soon as possible. When you're with a team, you put a little extra pressure on because you want to come back sooner, but that's when you make a mistake. It's not the right thing to do."When you have a pinched nerve in your back, it's all about how your body progresses and it's been a long ride for me. It started out as a month, being positive that within a week I was going to be back in the lineup but everything kept getting longer."It didn't help that the Giants were struggling without their star outfielder in the lineup.Up to the day Pagan went [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] down, on June 14, the Giants had compiled a 43-26 record, going 36-21 with Pagan starting, and were first in the National League West division with a 61/2-game lead.Pagan was also hitting a team-best .307 to go with a .356 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] on-base percentage.Since he has been gone, San Francisco is 18-25 for an overall record of 61-51 and now second in the division, 11/2 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. His batting average and on-base percentage still are the best marks among his major league teammates."Just watching the team, seeing them battle has been really tough for me," Pagan said.Pagan's mistake to rush back in and help his fallen brethren only led to further irritating the pinched nerve in his lower back.So to escape it all, Pagan went to Arizona to recover."I knew being in the clubhouse, and knowing the need the team had, put more pressure on me. I went to Arizona to clear my head and just work hard and now I feel pretty good," he said.In Arizona, Pagan hit 3 for 5 with two doubles, a walk and two runs scored in two games for the Giants' rookie league team.On Monday, Pagan started in center field and hit leadoff.Pagan, who said he was looking forward to facing more consistent pitching at the Triple-A level, was hitless in four at-bats but made contact on every single attempt, with three flyouts and one groundout. The Grizzlies defeated the Bees 4-1.Pagan is expected to be in the Grizzlies lineup for tonight's game against the Bees, and it's uncertain if he'll join the Giants in Milwaukee this week.Pagan said he has [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] done a lot of work strengthening his core while on the disabled list and wants to be in the best shape once he returns to the Giants."I feel very good. I don't want to rate myself, I'm just very good," he said.Nonetheless, after an extended stay on the disabled list, Pagan knows he is needed back in San Francisco soon and misses his teammates "big time.""They're like brothers to me. You know how much you miss a brother when you're gone. It hurts," he said. "The good thing is they're in the fight so I can go there and give my best."

Researchers from the University of Louisville will lead an international effort to utilize tobacco plants in HIV prevention, the university announced today.
 
The researchers will develop a gel containing a specific protein that will prevent the transmission of HIV. The project is being funded by a five-year, $14.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health.
 
UofL s Kenneth Palmer is leading the team of researchers in an international project using tobacco plants in HIV prevention. (Photo from UofL)
鈥淥ur [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] researchers are looking to solve problems that affect the world,鈥?said James R. Ramsey, president of the University of Louisville. 鈥淕lobally, more than 34 million people are HIV positive. The development of a low-cost method to prevent transmission of HIV certainly is something that is desperately needed and the use of tobacco plants as a method of carrying the vaccine appears to be key in the process.鈥?br>
 
鈥淎pproximately seven years ago, UofL and Owensboro Health created a joint venture to develop a world-class plant pharmaceutical program that would have an impact globally,鈥?said David L. Dunn, M.D., executive vice president for health affairs at UofL. 鈥淭oday鈥檚 announcement, coupled with the announcement we made in May about the Helmsley Charitable Trust providing funding to our research into two other cancer vaccines utilizing tobacco plants, demonstrates that the vision is becoming a reality.鈥?br>
 
Kenneth Palmer, professor of pharmacology and toxicology and director of the Owensboro Cancer Research Program of UofL鈥檚 James Graham Brown Cancer Center, is leading a team of researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, the Magee-Women鈥檚 Research Institute in Pittsburgh, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, the University of Maryland, Baltimore and Kentucky Bioprocessing Inc. and Intrucept Biomedicine LLC in Owensboro.
 
The team is working with the carbohydrate combining protein Griffithsin (GRFT), which is found in red algae. In laboratory work, the protein has shown to have broad-spectrum activity against HIV. GRFT binds to the dense shield of sugars that surrounds HIV cells and prevents these cells from entering other non-HIV cells. The team plans to develop a gel containing the protein for use during sexual intercourse by people at risk for HIV transmission.
 
To develop the microbicide, Palmer鈥檚 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] team takes a synthetic copy of the protein and injects it into a tobacco mosaic virus, which carries the protein into the tobacco leaves. After 12 days, the researchers harvest the leaves and extract the mass-produced protein for development into the vaccine.
 
鈥淥ur goal is to optimize the delivery system of the protective agent, which in this case is a gel, and determine its safety and estimates of its efficacy, leading to a first-in-humans clinical trial,鈥?Palmer said.
 
鈥淧eople may question why a cancer program is conducting research into HIV prevention,鈥?said Donald Miller, M.D., Ph.D., director of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center, a part of KentuckyOne Health. 鈥淚n fact, cancer can be a result of every major disease that we know about, and HIV infection is no exception.鈥?br>
 
Overall, the grant contains three significant [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] projects 鈥?The Critical Path Project; Preclinical Testing Project; and Clinical Trial Project.
 
The critical path project involves manufacturing the microbicide active ingredient, ensuring quality of the microbicide and the formulated gel product and production for actual use. This process is in collaboration with two Owensboro-based biotechnology companies (Kentucky Bioprocessing Inc. and Intrucept Biomedicine LLC), and Lisa Rohan at the University of Pittsburgh, and Magee-Women鈥檚 Research Institute. Rohan has significant experience developing delivery systems for similar medications.
 
The preclinical testing project is a collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta to use an animal model to ensure that the vaccine is safe and to determine that it actually provides protection from infection.
 
The clinical trial project involves developing the application to conduct a clinical trial for the Food and Drug Administration, as well as conducting the first-in-humans testing.
 
Note: Palmer is one of the founders and principal partners in Intrucept Biomedicine LLC.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) Rangers say a man rescued from a mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park suffered life-threatening injuries after falling an unknown distance while sliding down snow.
Nick Creadon, 31, of Golden, was [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] flown off Gabletop Mountain Saturday morning after using his cellphone to call for help Friday afternoon. His condition wasn t known.
Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson said Creadon fell while glissading sliding down [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] snow without the help of a sled or skis.
Creadon was in a steep cirque above Loomis Lake. Rangers and equipment were flown to the lake in between severe thunderstorms Friday.
Despite his injuries, he was able to descend toward the lake and rangers were able to reach him just after midnight.
The rescue came a day after a climber found a body on Longs Peak.

Update| 6:28 p.m.:
Earlier today, we wrote about two friend-of-the-court briefs concerning the upcoming state Supreme Court hearing on the McCleary decision.
Then we found out that every single living former governor of Washington got together and filed their own brief. Yep, every single one.
Their message [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sacs-louis-vuitton-2013-37]Sacs Louis Vuitton 2013[/url] is simple. Instead of punishing the state Legislature in September s hearing, the former governors say the court should lay off, at least until after the 2015 budget session ends. The concern appears to be that political bickering and horse-trading to find billions of dollars for education on a tight deadline might not be in the best interest of the state.

Original post:
A trio of low-income groups weighed in Monday in the landmark McCleary school funding case, arguing that the Supreme Court, by ordering the Legislature to dramatically raise education spending, may hurt low-income students in the process.

She creates remarkable images that seamlessly camouflage her mostly nude models into New York City鈥檚 skyline, blending them into the details of the Empire State Building, the Manhattan Bridge, Central Park and other famous landmarks.
The art form, preserved in photographs, is the result of a meticulous process that relies [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] on models who must hold their pose perfectly still for hours and of New York City鈥檚 relatively liberal laws that have no problem with a woman standing topless in the middle of a busy street.
Merry says she came up with the idea for the series after moving to New York from the San Francisco area this year.
鈥淚 wanted to engage the city and understand it and make some observations,鈥欌€?Merry said. 鈥淪o instead of a person right in front of the Empire State building or the Statue of Liberty, they鈥檙e softly in the background, and [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] you鈥檝e got more of a reflective view of the person within the landscape.鈥欌€?

鈥淚t feels great to be painted,鈥欌€?says model Jessica Mellow, who wore only a bikini bottom and running shoes. 鈥淵ou feel the transformation process. The brush itself, it鈥檚 really soft. It feels more like a massage.鈥欌€?
But the city as a body-painting studio comes with its hazards.
Merry carefully checked weather forecasts to make sure there was no chance of [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/url] rain.

She s pretty banged up, Brady said Monday.According to Brady and a Thurston County Sheriff s Office news release:About 9:30 a.m. Monday, the suspect approached the woman in Yelm, near the bowling alley on Yelm Avenue, and [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Sistina[/url] allegedly tried to get her car keys. He then allegedly began to viciously beat her before some passersby came to her aid. The man then allegedly assaulted one of the helpers and stole his truck. A pursuit ensued through the northeast portion of Thurston County including Marvin Road in Lacey and on and off Interstate 5 involving the Sheriff s Office and Lacey and Olympia [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] police. The chase, which lasted 15 minutes, ended in the area of 26th Avenue and Friendly Grove Road Northeast in Olympia.A Thurston County sheriff s detective blocked the truck and then pushed it into a ditch. The suspect then allegedly attempted to back up onto the detective s vehicle before running away. He allegedly tried to carjack another vehicle before a Lacey police officer subdued him with a stun gun.

And when she made the final that increased dramatically - so much so that that was headlined "Jenneke jiggles to fifth as Sally stars".That was an outrageous piece of journalism, of course, and a sad indictment of how far attitudes to women's sport still have to go.Jenneke, for her part, doesn't exactly go out of her way to protest that people are talking about her for the wrong reasons.

What does Michelle really think about how she's become so famous?2. What does it say about sports 'fans' across the world that a bit of jiggling gets many times as many hits on the web as a report on an elite sporting event?3.

Khloe Kardashian got super drunk at sister Kim [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-corners-towel-scarf-38]Louis Vuitton Corners Towel Scarf[/url] and Kanye West's welcome party/rehearsal dinner in May. Appearing as on Monday, Aug. 4, ."The night before at Versailles, Khloe drank a little too much," she said. "[The next day], I had to wake her up and she was laying down sleeping getting her makeup done for the wedding, and I'm just praying that she'll get up in time to walk down the aisle," she continued. "They had to do it while she was sleeping because she was so hungover." Looking absolutely gorgeous in a low-cut bustier and teal coat, Kardashian went on to reveal to Kimmel how touched she felt to have had friends and family come together in celebration of her relationship."It was the most amazing experience just to be able to share that experience with [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/ceinture-louis-vuitton-17]Ceinture Louis Vuitton[/url] so many family members and friends that I don't think ever would have had that opportunity to come out to Paris," the star said.

Search and rescue operations were hampered by strong currents聽Tuesday morning on the Padma River near the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka,聽where a ferry carrying hundreds of people on board, capsized a day earlier.
The ferry reportedly in the river in Munshiganj district, about 18 miles southwest of Dhaka, but details about the passengers could not be confirmed. While Associated Press, or AP, which cited authorities, estimated that about 250 to 300 people were on board the M.V. Pinak, local reports said the ferry was carrying at least 450 people on board. At least 44 of them managed to swim ashore to safety, reports said Monday.
According to AP, Shipping Minister Shahjahan [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] Khan said that a salvage ship had been sent to the accident site but tall waves were preventing officials from launching the rescue operation. Local residents [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] in speedboats also tried to reach the site, hours after the ferry sank, but had to turn back because of rough weather, the report added.
The Ministry of Shipping has reportedly given a 10-day deadline for an investigation into the latest incident.
Bodies of two passengers have been recovered so far, while many are reportedly feared to be dead in the latest incident that has again raised questions about the safety of the country's ferries, which are prone to overcrowding.
鈥淲e have heard that the ferry was overloaded with passengers and the river was rough," Tofazzal Hossain, the officer-in-charge of a local police station, told Agence France-Presse, according to .
Many of the passengers were reportedly on their way back home from ancestral villages after celebrating Eid al-Fitr, the festival that marks the end of the [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] Islamic fasting month of Ramadan.
Azizul Haque, 30, one of the survivors who swam ashore said, according to : "The ferry went out of control due to winds and currents, tilting from one side to the other," adding: "Then the captain jumped out because he probably understood it was sinking. The river was rough, and there were many passengers on board."
"One woman swam nearly to shore and was picked up by a speedboat," he said. "She was crying, saying she has two daughters. It was panic. Everyone was praying to God."
In , another ferry, carrying 200 passengers, capsized in the Meghna River near Dhaka, killing at least 50 people.

She was fully-aware and awake but unable to move or communicate verbally due to paralysis of nearly all the muscles in her body, except for her eyes.
The former teacher has now gained a degree in ancient history and written an autobiography - thanks to a laptop that translates her eye movements into text. She began her studies in 2008.
Advertisement
She now hopes to tackle a Masters in the history of art.
Living with her parents in Rugeley, Staffordshire, she began her degree in 2008, determined not to be beaten.
Finishing the Open University qualification has been a Herculean task because her fastest writing pace of 50 words per hour has meant each three-hour exam has taken three weeks to complete.
Ms Faizey Webster, now 42, worked three hours a day on the degree, nudging buttons either side of her head to move the cursor on the screen and blinking to register the letters.
"When I passed my degree, I was so pleased and proud of myself," she said.
"No matter what obstacles were in my way, such as getting pneumonia twice and other lesser illnesses, I was determined to reach my goal.
"When I had my stroke, I realised [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 30[/url] I would not be able to do anything physical. I decided to use the thing that had not been affected and that was my brain.
"I felt I needed to prove to myself and to others that I was still me, Dawn."
Her problems began when she was taken to hospital 26 weeks into her pregnancy and was diagnosed with pre-eclampsia - a potentially-fatal condition associated with high blood pressure.
Over the next six days her health deteriorated. Her baby had to be delivered by caesarean weighing just 1lb 8oz.
A week later Ms Faizey Webster returned home - still suffering high blood pressure - but was told she would be fine.
But days later her high blood pressure triggered a stroke.
"I immediately knew something was terribly wrong," she said. "I felt dizzy and my voice was horribly slurred."
She said she was vaguely aware of a tracheostomy tube going into her [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] neck to help her breathe.
"My mind screamed that my brain was fine," she said. "But as I couldn't speak, no one could hear me shouting that my brain was still alive."
Over the following week, she drifted in and out of consciousness. Her condition got so bad that even her eye muscles were paralysed.
She listened, while her family discussed her condition and doctors told her husband to prepare for the worst.
"All I could do was lie there hopelessly watching them, listening for snippets of news about how Alexander was.
"Inside I cried, but no tears came out. When people saw me, they had no idea I was as wide-awake as ever."
A breakthrough came when she was finally able to blink to her father Alec. She said: "My dad asked me if I could hear him and told me to blink. [When] I blinked, he jumped up in shock."
She was soon fitted with the laptop that allowed her to communicate, but months later her husband Simon walked out.
"When Simon left me it was a crushing blow; I had always believed we married in sickness and in health," she said. "I was sure if it had been the other way round - and this had happened to him - I would always have been there for him. He saw us both as victims, alone and confused. But I felt betrayed."
The couple now share custody of their son, who lives with his father but visits Ms Faizey Webster.
Her 80-year-old father is her full-time carer along with her mother Shirley, 75. "It's amazing she has managed to do this considering her condition," he said.
"We are so proud of her. She worked so hard to get there. Before her stroke she used to love travelling. Egypt was one of her favourite places [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] because of her love of history.
"It was heartbreaking to see her go through all of this. But she hasn't given up. She has her bad days, as anyone in her situation would, but she is determined to keep going."
"She is graduating in October up in Manchester. It's going to be such a proud moment for us all."

Verizon Wireless has fired back at the Federal Communications Commission, saying it did nothing wrong with the data throttling, or slowdowns, of its 4G LTE unlimited data subscribers. Verizon鈥檚 response comes as a reply to a letter from FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler, [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] who criticized the expansion of its data throttling policies.
In a letter dated Aug. 1 to the FCC, the Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE:VZ) subsidiary rebuffed Wheeler鈥檚 concerns while defending its throttling practices as a way to manage its network.
鈥淩ather than an effort to 鈥榚nhance [our] revenue streams,鈥?our practice is a measured and [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] fair step to ensure that this small group of customers do not disadvantage all others in the sharing of network resources during times of high demand,鈥?Verizon wrote in response to Wheeler鈥檚 CEO Daniel S. Mead, according to .
鈥?Reasonable network management鈥?concerns the technical management of your network; it is not a loophole designed to enhance your revenue streams,鈥?Wheeler wrote to Mead on July 30.
Verizon also pointed out in its letter that it had already implemented its throttling policy with 3G network users three years ago. However, under this new policy, 4G LTE subscribers under older, grandfathered unlimited data plans would also find their speeds throttled if connected to a cell tower experiencing high demand starting . Verizon also argued that its , mainly AT T (NYSE:T), T-Mobile (NYSE:TMUS) [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] and Sprint (NYSE:S), were engaging in similar throttling practices.
Speaking to reporters on Monday, Mead said Verizon was surprised by the FCC鈥檚 remarks.
鈥淲e were very surprised to receive that letter," Mead said, according to . "There were many parts that were incorrect. We have great respect for the FCC, but I'm not sure the chairman understood what we're doing exactly.鈥?

ELTOPIA Alan Schreiber s truck bounces along a rutted road past row upon row of crops.Blueberries, asparagus, apples, cantaloupe, Brussels sprouts, Concord grapes, Merlot grapes, peaches, pears, cherries, onions, pumpkins, potatoes, tomatoes, sugar beets, alfalfa. Over 300 varieties of produce, much of it part of experiments on disease, pests and growing techniques. Every row here is something different, the Franklin County farmer said. There s Fava beans, Chinese cabbage, early green cabbage, green cabbage, red cabbage, savoy cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, another kind of kale, bok choy, some Napa cabbage, peppers, melons, tomatoes, tomatillos, eggplant. It goes on and on and on. But the crop that Schreiber figures will be more lucrative than any of them was completely unfamiliar to him a foreign world. Until a grower came to him wanting to know how to control mites on marijuana plants. That s when Schreiber realized he d better learn about the cannabis plant.He turned out to have a source of knowledge on his own staff.The 52-year-old Schreiber met 25-year-old Tom Balotte about a year ago and hired him as a mechanic. Balotte had worked on a Virginia Tech research farm before moving with his girlfriend to Washington state.He put his mechanical mind to work fixing and [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] designing equipment, like a shield he built to expand the space that could be used for research by keeping pesticide being sprayed on some plants away from others.The Romania-born, Texas-raised son of a botanist and a mechanical engineer, Balotte s tattoos tell part of his story. The design on his arm relates to shooting airsoft guns, the one on his fist to a favorite metal band, and the ink on his back and his other arm to the worlds of video games The Elder Scrolls and World of Warcraft. A three-monitor display at home immerses him in his games.Schreiber is a straitlaced Eastern Washington farmer. He grew up on a farm and earned doctoral degrees in entomology and pesticide toxicology, then worked for the Environmental Protection Agency and as a Washington State University professor before going into commercial research. He voted against Initiative 502 that legalized recreational marijuana.If they re something of an odd couple, it turned out they were well suited for collaboration on the new project Schreiber had in mind. I ve got the pest management experience, Schreiber said, and he s got the kind of applied, real-world, make-things-grow skills. The full realization came months after Balotte was hired, during a conversation over beers at a 30th-floor Portland restaurant at the end of a long day at an agricultural conference. It turned out Balotte s past tinkering included growing marijuana in a closet.They started to realize Balotte s experience could be a perfect match for Schreiber s hopes of doing cutting-edge research [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] and development on the plant and its pests. He was made for a project like this, Schreiber said.Balotte isn t a pot smoker, although he travels in the right circles. I wish I could, but I was just too sensitive to it, Balotte said. My friends, it looks like they re having the most fun in the world, and I m sitting there with my beer in my hand just sitting there with envy, because it looks awesome. Now Schreiber has applied for [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] a license. His is one of more than 2,400 applications still waiting after the state Liquor Control Board has approved fewer than 140 growers.Meantime, Balotte has designed a prototype of a hydroponic growing contraption. If you want to try some advanced growing techniques you have to involve some engineering, some design, and that s really what I like, Balotte said.The prototype involves PVC tubes dotted with holes like giant flutes, each hole a spot for a plant to stick out of while its roots are bathed in nutrients. The thing is gathering dust in a greenhouse while they wait for a license.If approved, they expect they can pioneer new ways of not only growing the plant, but keeping it from being destroyed by pests and contaminants.Schreiber expects a huge demand for information among the licensed growers. The first time that somebody has $100,000 worth of this that they lose because they get an aphid infestation, a mite infestation, powder mildew or Botrytis (a fungus), he said, ... people will want to know how to control these pests.

pushing for a ban on it. The reason is not passenger safety, it is the disruptive effects of voice calls they [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] re concerned about.
The government agency has plans to publish a notice of proposed rule making (NPRM) about in-flight calls in early December, and open it for public comments until February 2015. As per the report, the notice will detail the reason why the agency wants in-flight calls to be banned.
At this point, there is no final determination as to what the NPRM will say, let alone a final rule, a DOT spokesperson said.
The news comes nearly a year after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] that it is safe for travelers to use hand-held electronic devices like smartphones, tablets and e-readers during all portions of a flight from take off to landing. However, that did not include making or receiving phone calls. Shortly thereafter, the FCC had that it doesn t see any safety-related reasons to block the use of cellular services during airline flights.
On the other hand, airlines are opposed to a blanket ban, and argue the Transportation Department is overstepping its bounds. They want the government to let them decide how cellphones are used in flight, with some of them considering options such as phone booth-like areas where calls could be made without disrupting other passengers.
The Transportation Department has said it would pursue the ban on consumer-protection grounds, adding that it has the authority to force a ban because it has been tasked with ensuring airlines offer safe and adequate services. According to the report, if the DOT moves [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] ahead with a voice call ban, it could override any FCC rule change.

We were opposed to that.
Mr Hackett said the association had a moral objection to the fund's blatant discrimination against non-union workers.
The association also thought the fund's design might be illegal under [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sandals-46]Sandals[/url] the Fair Work Act and sought its own legal advice, which it sent to the BERT board.
We said we were concerned, please consider this and they (the BERT board) got their own advice and made a decision, Mr Hackett said.
Senior counsel assisting the inquiry, Jeremy [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sneakers-34]Sneakers Louis Vuitton[/url] Stoljar, said the BERT fund had stepped away from its original business model and was failing to help non-union contributors.
Some of the welfare benefits ... can only be described as advancing the silent interests of union shareholders, he said.
Some members of BERT, despite [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/loafers-57]Loafers Louis Vuitton[/url] the fact that they're contributing monies ... are shut out from the benefits that BERT offers.
BERT director Chris Stanley, who is employed by construction company John Holland, confirmed that only financial members of the CFMEU or the Plumbers Union could access funeral, travel insurance, dental or childcare benefits.
The hearing before retired High Court judge Dyson Heydon continues.

With Aldean racking up more than 21.5 million digital track sales and on-demand since 2005, it looks like Plan A is working out just fine. He'll be on the road for the rest of the summer, completing a stadium tour that runs until late October.
The [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] Georgia native is also readying his sixth studio album, with "Burnin' [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] It Down" as its first taste. The mid-tempo rocker was co-written by Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins and the guys of Florida Georgia Line. Aldean admits the tune has a different sonic feel from anything he's recorded. "I've pretty much always gone with a really guitar-driven song that's pretty in your face," he says, "and this is more of a laid-back thing with a really cool groove."
Check out the "Burnin' It Down" lyric video .

About 50 volunteers turned out Saturday morning to help construct new playground toys at Rainier Elementary School.But the nearly $30,000 set couldn t have happened if it wasn t for an outpouring of community support and a lot of work and persistence of 11-year-old student Faith Boesch, according to Rainier School District Superintendent Tim Garchow. Faith came to me and said, What can we do about a new playground?   Garchow recalled. I said, Well, we don t have it in the budget.   So that s when Faith and her [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] mom, Ida, decided to make it happen on their own.They wrote grant applications, organized coin drives, tapped businesses and churches for donations, [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] and set up other fundraisers.They even sent a video asking television host Ellen DeGeneres for support.The Hollywood A-lister didn t respond to their request, but folks who live in the small community in southeast Thurston County certainly did. Everyone stepped up, Ida Boesch said. It s just a tremendous effort of the community, Garchow added. Everyone s gotten behind it. Volunteers from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the Rainier City Council and the school district joined others in digging holes, raking rocks, securing posts and building the playground set, which is accessible to disabled students and features several elements for kids to climb, bounce and play on.The new set is much larger than the school s wooden set, and features toys that are geared toward older kids. I want [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] to try everything, said 8-year-old Matthew Kenney, as he took a short break with his twin brother, John, during the work party.Their grandma Terri Rendahl predicts that the playground will be an instant hit and get plenty of use even when school isn t in session. It s amazing what one little girl s dream turned into, Rendahl said.

HINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WITI) 聽20-year-old James Taylor of Mecosta County, Michigan, says a massive rave he hosted was apparently worth it, despite police saying there were at least six drug overdoes and one sexual assault.
According to , Taylor says he successfully threw the largest rave in West Michigan. However, Taylor says it originally started out as a planned birthday party for a friend, but the amount of people quickly crew.
Taylor said that his home got so crowded that people couldn鈥檛 move from one room to the other, and the floor boards were shaking from all the extra weight.
Officials say more than 2,000 people showed up and many of them were under age. Officials say there were at least six drug overdoses and the reported sexual assault of a 19-year-old woman.
However, Taylor argues that it s not his responsibility. He told聽FOX 17 that he s glad police showed up.

Rodriguez, 21, was acquired Thursday in the trade that sent Boston Red Sox reliever Andrew Miller to the Orioles.
New team, new guys, new organization, new rules, but I ve got the same goal, same dream, playing (in the big leagues), Rodriguez said. Same baseball but a different team.
Rodriguez was considered one of the Orioles top four prospects.
You could see out there while he was competing why he was part of that trade, Sea Dogs Manager Billy McMillon said. All-in-all, a very solid debut for this organization.
Rodriguez showed a consistent 93-95 mph fastball from both the windup and the stretch, and his secondary [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] stuff was very playable at this level, McMillon said.
Rodriguez left with a 2-1 lead after striking out Greg Bird for the first out of the sixth. The 6-foot-2 left-hander twice worked out of no-out, two-on situations without allowing a run. With the game tied 1-1 in the fifth, two Trenton batters reached on consecutive infield errors, but Rodriguez got Jake Cave to roll into a 4-6-3 double play and struck out Tyson Blaser.
You know that happens in the games, and when that happens you have to continue what we [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] do, Rodriguez said. That situation, where there s two men on base, that s where we demonstrate what we ve got.
Rodriguez is 4-7 with a 4.60 ERA. It was his third win this season against Trenton. Pitching for the Bowie Baysox, he beat Trenton in back-to-back starts in June. Since then, he had gone 0-3 with three no-decisions.
Portland (72-44) scored single runs in the second and fifth innings and added two in the seventh to break a three-game losing streak and avoid being swept at home for the first time in 2014.
Trenton (56-60) scored on a home run in the fourth by Dan Fiorito. Portland retook the lead in the fifth on a double by Heiker Meneses and a single to right by Shannon Wilkerson.
Mike Miller was also making his first appearance at Hadlock. The Red Sox s ninth-round pick in 2012 out of Concord, California, was called up Saturday from High-A Salem, where he hit .307 in 49 games. Miller played 31 games at short, 14 at second and three at third base in Salem. Making the start at third, Miller reached [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] base in each of his four plate appearances, going 2 for 2 with two walks, including an RBI single in the two-run seventh. He scored from first on Blake Swihart s double to deep center, sliding around an attempted sweep tag.
It s always nice to get off on the right foot, Miller said. It s a nice confidence boost. Obviously one game isn t going to make or break a season, but for confidence, to come up and contribute allows me to relax a little and know I can play at this level and hopefully keep it rolling.
Portland relievers Danny Diaz and Noe Ramirez combined for 32/3 innings of two-hit scoreless relief.
The first-place Sea Dogs are off Monday, departing for a pair of three-game series at Bowie and Richmond.
NOTES: Rodriguez struck out Cave on three pitches to open the game. He walked one and hit one batter. Sixty-two of his 88 pitches were strikes. Cave entered the game hitting .338 in 16 games with Trenton. He went 0 for 4 with three strikeouts and a double-play grounder. Portland is now 57-13 when scoring first.

Will the final season of HBO vampire series hit "True Blood" end with a poignant death of one of its lead stars? In the latest episode of the show, reported that Sookie Stakehouse (Anna Paquin) hooking up with her one true love Bill (Stephen Moyer) made fans of the fictional and off-screen couple nervous as there are three episodes more to go. This reportedly means that there are still be a lot of things that could happen, and this [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/23-sac-porte-epaule]Sac port锟斤拷 锟斤拷paule[/url] may be the one good thing in the season before everything goes downhill.Like Us on
If there's one person who is more devastated than everyone who cares for Bill, it would be his "child" Jessica (Deborah An Woll), who has been inconsolable with the fact that her parent's Hep-V infection has quickly accelerated, no thanks to Sookie's blood, said. Sookie, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/24-sac-porte-main]Sac port锟斤拷 main[/url] on the other hand, sought several people to aid in Bill's recovery hopefully: the doctor who had treated an ill Sookie in Season 2 and Sookie's lineage Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauer). After being confronted with the truth that Bill's infection is irreparable even with magic, Sookie then resorted to stay with Bill, and made love with him.
Meanwhile, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) is still on the hunt for Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp), whose blood could be the cure for all infected vampires, including Bill, said. However upon the discovery that Sarah's sister Amber (Natalie Hall) had helped her escape from Eric's clutches, the Nordic vampire's desire to seek the cure had sent him in a hallucinogenic state, killing him instead of Sarah.

DENVER (CBS4) -聽A compromise on聽the contentious fracking debate in Colorado pulled together two聽opposing sides on Monday with a聽promise聽to ax聽four ballot measures that have divided the state on the聽issue.
That agreement among聽Gov. John Hickenlooper,聽Rep. Jared Polis, environmental groups and the oil and gas industry creates an 18-member task force that will study fracking in Colorado and present recommendations to the state legislature. In exchange, they ve asked that organizers pull two pro-fracking and two anti-fracking measures and that a lawsuit against the city of Longmont be dismissed.
VIDEO:
We have an [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] obligation to develop (energy) in a way that is safe for our residents, supports jobs and the economy, respects private property rights and protects our health and environment, Hickenlooper said.
The task force will be charged to find solutions that minimize land-use conflicts near homes, schools, businesses and recreational areas. The state is seeking a balanced approach, he said, one that will represent diverse concerns from oil and gas, agriculture, environmental and health groups and local governments.
This is the way聽we do things in Colorado, Hickenlooper said. You have all the interests聽at the table. You work through the differences and difficulties and you figure out what is聽a compromise that serves聽all parties. Maybe no one is perfectly happy, but it serves all parties.
Hickenlooper said he worries about the legal ramifications if the various initiatives land on the ballot. Should聽any survive to the Nov. 4 election聽 and Hickenlooper appeared doubtful they would he said we ll have to sit and have a discussion. He didn t elaborate.
Our expectation is that all four of those will be (pulled)聽back, the governor said.
The compromise is, in some ways, a chance for Hickenlooper to recover from defeat in July, when he unsuccessfully attempted to forge a compromise through the state legislature, and for Polis to save face. The congressman who [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] represents Boulder and surrounding areas split from other top Democrats, including the governor and U.S. Sen. Mark Udall, over many fracking issues. Polis said Monday he believed solutions should have always been sought legislatively and not through elections.
Fracking is a process energy companies use to extract fuels from underground rock formations that have trapped oil and gas. Equipment injects water into the rock to fracture it and let fuels escape. Critics allege wells related to fracking are unsightly and cause small earthquakes. Proponents argue more widespread fracking will lower energy prices and help the country more efficiently explore domestic energy stockpiles.
A drilling operation in Erie (credit: CBS)
Today s announcement regarding this potential compromise is truly a victory for the people of Colorado, Polis said. Citizens will be on equal footing with the oil and gas industry.
He said fracking opposition from four communities in his district generated animosity and a lawsuit against Longmont for its voter-approved drilling聽ban, which was struck down by a district judge in July because it competed with state interests. Monday s compromise asks the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission, which regulates the industry, to dismiss another suit against Longmont, which had restricted energy development.
Polis called the litigious atmosphere unsustainable.
The task force will be split three ways, Polis said: Six will represent oil and gas interests, six will come from concerned citizen groups and six will be composed of Coloradans with extensive knowledge of the issue. The task force will be chaired by La Plata County Commission Gwen Lachelt and Randy Cleveland, the president of XTO Energy.
Hickenlooper said their compromise provides a blueprint for other states seeking solutions to similar battles across the country: This isn t just going on in Colorado. This is going on in Denton, Texas, and Wyoming and Pennsylvania. What we re working on here could be a template聽for what聽would happen聽in the rest of the country.
Monday was the deadline for signatures needed to get the initiatives on the ballot. Organizers were required to [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] collect 86,105 valid signatures.
Fracking critics turned in signatures for two ballot questions that would restrict oil and gas drilling. One would increase the minimum property setback on rigs from 500 feet to 2,000 feet. The other would create an environmental Bill of Rights.
Hickenlooper and the energy industry opposed the measures. They argue the proposals will have negative economic impacts. Supporters argue they re aimed at protecting the environment and the health of residents.
The two measures backed by the oil and gas industry are Initiative 121, which would keep revenues from communities that oppose local聽drilling, and Initiative 137, which requires ballot聽initiatives include fiscal impact estimates.
The two anti-fracking initiatives are 88, which pushes rig setbacks from homes, and 89,聽the environmental Bill of Rights.

Five 19-year-old college buddies are today launching Push For Pizza, a one-button app that brings you pizza wherever you are, even if you鈥檙e [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] too chill or (I can say this legally here in the Seattle area) too high to talk to place your order with a human being or even to fill out a web form. You don鈥檛 even need to scratch your head over what toppings to combine: the app only offers plain or pepperoni, for now.
The announcing the product is, and I use this word rarely, epic. A must-watch below.  The video鈥檚 basic concept: 鈥淲e want pizza.  But I don鈥檛 want to order pizza. There should be something like Uber for pizza鈥hat if we got off the couch and designed it ourselves?鈥?
What does this development mean, and how does it relate to trends in millennial customer service?
Let鈥檚 talk about what this development means, and doesn鈥檛 mean for customer service, the customer experience, foodservice, hospitality.
In a sense, this app, designed by five smart young men who are right in the mainstream of the millennial generation demographic (the biggest generation of customers in U.S. and world history, born 1980-2000, give or take) can be seen as the ultimate in millennial customer service.
It鈥檚 incredibly efficient, incredibly friction-free, incredibly un-annoying. It鈥檚 the culmination in a small way (can you have a small culmination? If so, this is it) of a key trend that millennial customers and other [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Artsy[/url] customers of today are looking for:
鈥?The trend of offloading transactional processes. Millennial customers don鈥檛 accept, necessarily, that a business would need to insert human beings into the process of checking into a hotel, checking out of a retail store, buying plane tickets, ordering office supplies, or鈥?ordering pizza.
On the other hand
On the other hand, please don鈥檛 misunderstand: this does not cover everything millennials, or other customers of today, want from the customer service experience.
It lacks a couple crucial elements that customers of today are looking for, or at least are often looking for:
鈥?It鈥檚 not an adventure.  (Or won鈥檛 be, once the novelty of the launch wears off.) Customers of today, millennials or otherwise, are often looking for an experience, or what I prefer to call an adventure. Ordering a pizza without making any choices (OK: one choice: Plain or Pepperoni), without knowing the company you鈥檙e ordering from, and so forth, is conceptually a lot like pulling a frozen pizza out of the fridge and popping it in the oven. In fact, it鈥檚 kind of less than that: because with frozen pizza you can choose between California Pizza Kitchen and Digiorno, each of which has its own backstory, vibe, and taste.
鈥?nbsp;It鈥檚 not genuine. It鈥檚 not un-genuine either, it鈥檚 just鈥? not nothing. Customers of today are looking for a genuine experience, whatever that means to them. In pizza, believe it or not, it means a lot. I had the pleasure of speaking for the Pizza Expo this spring, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Audacieuse[/url] and pizza is a whole world.  And often,  it鈥檚 a world customers are interested in being part of beyond pushing a button.
Where 鈥淧ush For Pizza鈥?really succeeds
The two ways that Push For Pizza succeeds most are these:
1. It  brings 鈥渄igital parity鈥?to pizza.  Digital parity is the desire of customers today, millennial and otherwise, for businesses in the physical world to be as friction-free as the best of what customers have encountered online.  In the case of Push For Pizza, your account information (credit card, address, 鈥榩lease don鈥檛 let the dog out鈥?type of info, and more) are saved so you don鈥檛 have to repeat them, ever.  After that, you just鈥?push for pizza.
2. It facilitates relationships. The relationship, unfortunately for those of us who want to distinguish our brands through service, is between customers, not between the customers and us. you鈥檙e with your kids (, cover your ears; there are a lot of calories, and a lot of future obesity involved here), you鈥檙e with your boyfriend, girlfriend, or, I suppose both, you鈥檙e with your friends, and you have that brainstorm; this magic moment with my compatriots can continue鈥?only if we have鈥?PIZZA!

SPOKANE, Wash. With no statewide contests on the ballot only about 40 percent of Washington's registered voters are expected to cast ballots in Washington's primary election."That may be high," said David Ammons, spokesman for the secretary of state's office.California and Oregon reported record low turnouts in their primaries, Ammons said. The 40 percent prediction is based on the past two midterm primaries in Washington, Ammons said. But those elections featured contests for a U.S. Senate seat, unlike the current election.The race for one open U.S. House seat and dozens of legislative races highlight Tuesday's contests.The most closely watched race has been for Washington's 4th Congressional District, which includes Yakima and the Tri-Cities. Republican U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings is giving up the seat after 20 years, and a dozen candidates are seeking a slot in the two-person runoff.Because the district tilts heavily to the GOP, Ammons said this race could become the first congressional contest in state history in which two people from the same [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] party advance to the November ballot under the state's top-two primary system, which was adopted in 2008.Former legislator and state Agriculture Director Dan Newhouse and former NFL star Clint Didier, a tea party candidate, are considered the front-runners among the eight Republicans. There are also two Democrats and two independents in the race.The remaining nine U.S. House seats are also contested in the primary, with the incumbents seeking re-election.While voters began receiving their primary ballots in the mail weeks ago, Tuesday is the last day to get them postmarked for delivery.In the Legislature, all 98 House seats are in the mix, as are 25 Senate seats. Currently in the Legislature, a mostly Republican coalition holds a 26-23 advantage in the Senate, and Democrats hold a 55-43 advantage in the House.In 95 of the 123 legislative races, there's no contest.

Adam Kline.A contentious race in the Senate's 31st District has two Republicans battling to move forward: incumbent state Sen. Pam Roach and Rep. Cathy Dahlquist. A third candidate, Lynda Messner, is running as a Democrat, but her party affiliation has been questioned by allies of Dahlquist and local Democrats because of comments she made online.Democratic incumbent state Sen. Tim Sheldon, who raised the ire of his party when he crossed lines to caucus with Republicans and help create the Majority Coalition Caucus in the Senate, faces challengers from the right and left in the 35th District primary. Business groups and others have spent more than $161,000 in support of Sheldon in advance of the primary.The election is entirely vote-by-mail, which means between 50 percent and 60 percent of the vote should be tallied and released Tuesday evening, Ammons said.

MIAMI [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] (August 4, 2014) Hurricane Bertha has formed in the Atlantic off the U.S. East Coast, but isn't expected to be a threat to land, forecasters said Monday.
The second hurricane of the Atlantic season had maximum sustained winds near 80 miles per hour Monday and little change is expected in the next 24 hours, forecasters said.
The storm, which [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] is expected to begin to weaken on Tuesday, was centered about 230 miles northeast of Great Abaco Island and was moving north at near 17 [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] miles per hour.
The storm brushed the Turks and Caicos Islands and southeastern Bahamas over the weekend as a tropical storm.
The current forecast map predicts that the center of the storm will stay offshore through Thursday.

Right up until 1998 Victoria s gas pipeline went no further north than Wodonga. A mere two hours up the road Wagga Wagga got a completely different supply from Moomba, 1500 kilometres away in outback South Australia.
And then the pipelines linked.
Advertisement
Suddenly Victoria s gas could be sold all along the east coast right up to Brisbane and eventually further north to Mount Isa [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-large-shawl-scarf-16]Louis Vuitton Large Shawl Scarf[/url] and Gladstone. Victoria started paying eastern states prices. It s about to happen again on a much larger scale.
This time instead of paying an eastern states price we will be paying a global price. Whereas the carbon tax pushed up gas prices 9 per cent (and is being removed) the shift to a world price will push up wholesale prices more than 100 per cent and keep them there.
Within months Gladstone will become the first port to send eastern states gas offshore. Each of its six liquefaction units will bottle as much gas as Victoria uses each year. They are meant to be fuelled from Queensland s coal seam gas, but in case there s not enough the owners have arranged to get gas from all sorts of places, including Victoria, using the network of pipes that already exists.
It will push up the eastern states wholesale price from around $4 a gigajoule to $9. Japan is said to be prepared to pay $18. It ll do it because as soon as it is possible to sell gas overseas, gas producers will be able to demand the same price from local customers that they can get overseas (less the cost of processing and shipping). If their Australian customers don t pay, they will sell it overseas, for the overseas price.
Each time an existing $4 contract comes up for renewal it s being replaced with a $9 one (sometimes $11). Contracts typically last years, so they are not all being changed at once, but by 2016-17 the average wholesale price is expected to hit $9.
What are we hearing from our government? On Sunday the ABC s  unearthed a tape of Abbott speaking in Texas in January at an event hosted by Chevron, BHP Billiton and ConocoPhillips: Australia will soon be the world s number one exporter of liquefied natural gas, he boasted. Australia is the world s largest exporter of black coal and we are [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-shawl-15]Louis Vuitton Shawl[/url] the world s third largest uranium producer.
Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane told reporter Jess Hill that standing in the way of exports in order to hold back prices didn t make economic sense .
Gas is the last commodity to receive an international price, he said. The reality is that just as we have had an international price for oil for over four decades, gas is now being sold in Australia at a world price.
But it isn t all being sold at at the world price. By law in Western Australia 15 per cent of all the gas produced in that state has to stay in the state. Western Australia s Liberal Premier Colin Barnett wants the law taken national. Any other developed country in the world would be ensuring that their relative clean energy is preserved, or some part of it preserved, he told Radio National.
He is right. The US, Canada and Egypt all have some sort of gas reservation policy. Yet here, notwithstanding the Coalition s apparent obsession with cheap energy, it s not on the agenda.
Retail gas prices will not double as a result of exports through Gladstone but they may increase by 30 per cent, many times what happened as a result of the carbon tax. The cost of wholesale gas makes up only 25 per cent of the retail charge.
Victorian households are not well placed to switch off gas. Victoria uses about 75 per cent of Australia s household gas. Our homes have been built that way. I ve an open mind about whether eastern Australia should reserve some of its gas for domestic use as does Western Australia. But the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-silk-scarf-43]Louis Vuitton Silk Scarf[/url] government doesn't. It s closed down the debate and it's suddenly quiet about energy prices.

UNITED NATIONS A production of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet" that hopes to visit every country in the world in two years landed at the United Nations on Monday, with the tale of the dithering Danish prince getting a boisterous, standing ovation from top diplomats.The stripped-down Shakespeare's Globe theater production played inside a chamber in the U.N.'s New York headquarters for some 500 guests, against a backdrop of real world crises in Gaza and the Ukraine."It's an absolute delight to be here. It's extraordinary. It feels very, very odd. But very pleasurably odd," said Dominic Dromgoole, the Shakespeare's Globe artistic director. "We like bold ideas. We like bold, simple some would say stupid ideas."The tour's goal is to visit 205 nations and territories the numbers are somewhat in flux as statehood demands rage in seven continents. It landed in New York having already [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] been seen in 28 countries and having accumulated 19,295 miles (31,053 kilometers) since it began this spring at its London home, a reconstructed Elizabethan playhouse beside the River Thames.The show is spare: a few steamer trunks, cloth sheets, some wood beams and rope are all the scenery on hand, and the actors play multiple roles as well as instruments such as drums, violins and mandolins. But there's no denying the words and message from an exuberant cast. The audience included actress Kim Cattrall and performance artist Laurie Anderson in the front row.The troupe, which already has performed in places as diverse as opera halls, market places and beaches, hopes to visit all the world's countries, including Iraq, North Korea and Syria. They also hope to perform in the West Bank, though no firm plans have been announced."Inclusivity is a much better policy than exclusivity," said Dromgoole. "If you do start excluding anyone, you do have to ask the question 'Where do you start and where do you stop?'"The show already has played Moscow and Ukraine's capital of Kiev, where the show debuted on May 24, the night before the most recent elections, and president-elect Petro Poroshenko was in attendance.The production, which is not sponsored or subsidized by any group, next moves on to Central America and the Caribbean, stopping in the Bahamas on Wednesday and on to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] Mexico, Cuba, Haiti and Jamaica. Later this summer it will head to Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.The tour involves a portable set and a 12-person, multicultural cast that includes Hong Kong-born actress Jennifer Leong and Maori actor Rawiri Paratene. The production is directed by Dromgoole and Bill Buckhurst, who travel with four stage managers.The title role is alternated between London actor Naeem Hayat, a recent graduate of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, and Nigeria-born Ladi Emeruwa, who trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Hayat played a thumbnail-biting prince at the U.N. with aplomb.Emeruwa said he thought the performance at the U.N. would be like a microcosm of what the company will face in the next few years. "I think it'll mean different things to different people different representatives depending on what sort of situation they're in or what sort of situation their country is in as well."The journey began in London on April 23 the Bard's 450th birthday and has already made stops from Amsterdam to Prague, Cyprus to the Ukraine. It concludes at its home theater on April 23, 2016 the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.For all the good feeling at the United Nations, Paratene, who plays Polonius, Claudius or the Ghost, had no illusions about the power of art going up against long-held international beliefs."It would be foolish of us to go in thinking that we could get the diplomats to operate better," he said. "All we can do is tell the story and if they glean from that something that makes the Israeli representative go to the other side of the room and sit next to the Palestinian representative and maybe kiss each other on the cheek and talk and listen, that would be very nice. But that's not what we're here to do. We're here to tell a story."---Online: http://globetoglobe.shakespearesglobe.com

Mrs. Fields' owner purchased TCBY in 2000, but the company filed for bankruptcy eight years later, and then restructured in 2011 to become Famous Brands International.
David Bloom, chief operating officer of Famous Brands, acknowledged that the chains have been in a rut. Sales of both fell about 7% last year, according to Technomic, a restaurant industry research firm.
After Z Capitol Partners purchased Famous Brands last summer, the company decided to pair the two chains [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton[/url] in an attempt to revive growth and profits.
"We feel we now have a significantly better offering, so we feel comfortable coming back," Bloom said.
The company has already doubled its store openings compared to last year, Bloom said. Dual-branded stores account for 80% of that growth.
The new shops are the latest example of dessert chains expanding their menus to stay afloat in a saturated market, said Bonnie Riggs, a restaurant industry analyst with the NPD Group.
Crumbs Bake Shop is planning to reopen with a wider dessert selection, and Red Mango Frozen Yogurt recently added sandwiches, wraps and salads with its sister company, Smoothie Factory, to become more of a cafe.
Riggs said although Mrs. Fields and TCBY suffered from overexpansion, high rents and changing trends, their strong brand recognition gives them a leg up. "People will try them again," Riggs said.
The dual-brand concept could be a game changer [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]LOUIS VUITTON Site Officiel[/url] for the company, agreed Mary Chapman, director of product innovation for Technomic.
"Pairing a frozen dessert with a bakery style treat hedges trends," Chapman said. "If consumer tastes shift from one, the other is there to back it up."
Bloom said he believes that an updated image and TCBY's healthy options will appeal to L.A. consumers. Four dual-concept stores are slated to open in L.A. within six to eight months with seven more set to open in the county. Mrs. Fields' existing mall locations will add frozen yogurt, starting with a store in the Santa Anita fashion mall.
At the new shops, customers can order a variety of TCBY frozen yogurts, including a vegan option and one mixed with Mrs. Fields brownies. Cookie-and-yogurt sandwiches, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] muffins and coffee are also offered.
Each store will also have a Mrs. Fields gift station where customers can customize and ship red tins filled with baked goods worldwide.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nancy Writebol, the American missionary who contracted Ebola while serving in Liberia, is expected to return to the U.S. for further treatment on Tuesday, according to SIM (), the Christian mission organization with which she serves. She remains in serious, but stable, condition.
Photo -
Writebol was serving on a joint team with Dr. Kent Brantly of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization, when they both contracted the virus.
The same medical evacuation plane that brought Brantly back to the U.S. for treatment on [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] Aug. 2 is on its way to Liberia to pick up Writebol. The plane, which is equipped with a unique containment unit, will fly into Dobbins Air Force Base near Atlanta. Writebol will then be transported to Emory University Hospital and placed in a special isolation unit set up in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP).
"We are so grateful and encouraged to hear that Nancy's condition remains stable and that she will be with us soon," said Bruce Johnson, president of SIM USA. "Her husband, David, told me Sunday her appetite has improved and she requested one of her favorite dishes Liberian potato soup and coffee."
David Writebol will travel back to the U.S. separately in a few days. He will be reunited with his wife, where they can visit through a window in the isolation unit.
SIM missionaries evacuated from Liberia returned to the U.S. on Sunday. The group of two adults and six children will be housed temporarily at SIM's campus in Charlotte.
SIM is following strict personal and public health safety protocols established by the CDCP and the World Health Organization regarding its personnel. All departing SIM personnel were cleared in Liberia by infectious disease medical experts to fly on commercial flights. All received medical checkups upon their return. No returning SIM staff members are ill or showing symptoms of infection. SIM medical staff, in cooperation with area healthcare professionals, will continue to monitor their health and support their well-being.
"Quite frankly, those returning to the U.S. need a temporary sanctuary where they can rest, relax and be loved [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] on by other members of the SIM family," said Johnson. "Media interest has been high, and we ask that their privacy be protected."
Although nonessential personnel have left the country, SIM is sending another American SIM missionary doctor to help with the treatment of Ebola patients at a separate Ebola Treatment Center on its 130-acre SIM/ELWA campus in Monrovia, Liberia.
"Our ELWA Hospital is led by capable Liberian doctors, administrators and staff," said Johnson. SIM currently has two expatriate doctors on site that have been caring for Writebol, Brantly and [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] others, alongside their Liberian colleagues. Other SIM ministries, including its radio station and HIV-AIDS public health education group, continue to operate with Liberian staff.
The latest updates on Writebol's condition and SIM's role in the Ebola epidemic in Liberia are available at .
SIM is an international Christian mission with a staff of nearly 3,000 workers serving in more than 65 countries. In addition to medicine, SIM serves on every continent in areas of education, community development, public health and Christian witness. While SIM stood for Sudan Interior Mission when it was founded 120 years ago, it is now a global mission known as SIM. Two of SIM's three founders died of disease within the first year of the organization's founding. Yet SIM continued on to become one of the largest Christian medical missions in the world.

Judge Alison Nathan for the New York District Court for the Southern District last week denied Aereo's request for immediate consideration of its preliminary injunction聽"issues," saying that unless it is聽allowed to resume its service "in the immediate [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] future, the company will likely not survive....the company is figuratively bleeding to death."
The court agreed with broadcasters that the "appropriate step" was for Aereo to prepare an order "consistent with the Supreme Court's decision" and gave Aereo two weeks from July 31 to make its case in that order.
The New York Southern District Court is the court that initially denied the preliminary injunction, only to be overturned by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, which was then overturned by the Supreme Court's聽June 25 decision that Aereo's delivery of TV station signals over the Internet was a performance that violated copyright law [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] since Aereo had not paid a fee. The Supreme Court remanded it to the lower court.
The Supreme Court said that Aereo was like a cable system in that it also provided a public performance. Aereo, which had argued it was not like a cable system, latched onto that and asked the Copyright Office to grant it a compulsory license. The Copyright Office said it still believed that Internet retransmissions were not subject to the compulsory license, but would hold the request in abeyance in case the [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] courts or regulators came to a different view.
The FCC has also tentatively concluded that over-the-top services lack the facilities to qualify as MVPDs, and appears in no hurry to make the definitive call.
In its emergency petition, Aereo argued that it was now clear that it was a cable system and broadcasters were unlikely to prevail in their argument that the service was illegal. It can still make that argument, but on the court鈥檚 timetable.

The total number of working-age (16 to 65) immigrants (legal and illegal) holding a job in Tennessee increased by 94,000 from the first quarter of 2000 to the first quarter of 2014, while the number of working-age native-born Americans with a job declined 47,000 over the same time.
The fact that all the long-term net gain in employment among the working-age went to immigrants is striking because the native-born accounted for 60 percent of the increase in the total size of [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] the state's working-age population.
In the first quarter of this year, only 66 percent of working-age natives in the state held a job. As recently as 2000, 72 percent of working-age natives in Tennessee were working.
Because the native-born population in Tennessee grew significantly, but the percentage working fell, there were nearly 300,000 more working-age natives not working in the first quarter of 2014 than in 2000.
There exists a very large supply of potential workers in Tennessee; in the first quarter of 2014, 1.3 million working-age natives were not working (unemployed or entirely out of the labor market) as were 90,000 working-age immigrants.
While the share of working-age natives holding a job has improved in Tennessee somewhat since the jobs recovery began in 2010, the share working showed no improvement in the last year.
Relative to other states, Tennessee ranked 30th in the nation in terms of the share of working-age natives holding a job in the first quarter of 2014.
In terms of the labor-force participation rate (share working or looking for work) among working-age natives, the state ranked 35th in the nation.
Two key conclusion from the state's employment situation:
First, the long-term decline in the employment of natives in Tennessee [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] and the enormous number of working-age natives not working clearly indicates that there is no general labor shortage in the state. Thus it is very difficult to justify the large increases in foreign workers (skilled and unskilled) allowed into the country by a bill like S.744, which many of Tennessee's politicians support.
Second, Tennessee's working-age immigrant population grew 176 percent from 2000 to 2014, one of the highest rates of any state in the nation. Yet, the number of natives working in 2014 was actually lower than in 2000. This undermines the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] argument that immigration on balance increases job opportunities for natives.
"It's remarkable that any political leader in Tennessee would support legislation that would increase the number of foreign workers allowed into the country, given the relatively weak job growth in the state and the large share of working-age people not working," observed Steven Camarota, the Center's Director of Research.
The Center for Immigration Studies is an independent, non-partisan, non-profit research organization founded in 1985. It is the nation's only think tank devoted exclusively to research and policy analysis of the economic, social, demographic, fiscal, and other impacts of immigration on the United States.

Rising stockpiles and price weakness were [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/bagages-louis-vuitton-48]Bagages Louis Vuitton[/url] also factors in the write-down and eventual sale last week by
ANZ research shows that the forecast average price of coking coal, which is burned in blast furnaces to make steel, for this calendar year is $US125 a tonne, compared with $US159 last year.
Advertisement
The prognosis for thermal coal, which is used mainly for energy generation, is not much better. ANZ forecasts an average price this year of $US74 per tonne, against $US84 last year. ANZ says the situation is unlikely to improve in the near, or medium, term and has downgraded price estimates for the next three years.
It says the main driver of oversupply has been China, whose coal production has risen by 3.3 billion tonnes or 400 per cent since 2000. Australian coal suppliers have been contributing to oversupply, too. Exports from Australia rose by 13.5 per cent year-on-year in 2013, to a record 360 million tonnes. So far this year, exports are up by more than 10 per cent on a comparable 2013 period, ANZ says.
Australia has the world s fourth-largest proven reserves of coal, and accounts for more than half the world s exports of coking coal, the Minerals Council of Australia says.
Companies with coal operations are feeling the pinch of price weakness in their shares prices. Despite good news from conglomerate Wesfarmers retail operations this year, weaker coal prices have held back its share price. Citigroup recently cut its 2015 profit forecast for the company after factoring in lower [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-louis-vuitton-50]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] coal prices and rising costs at Wesfarmers Curragh mine in Queensland.
Wesfarmers' shares have risen by 4 per cent this month to $43.65, but the stock has underperformed the broader market this year, falling by 0.9 per cent, compared with a 4 per cent rise in the S P/ASX 200 index.
While Coles profits are expected to rise by 9 per cent and Bunnings by 5 per cent, Citigroup expects Wesfarmers' earnings from resources to fall to $47 million in 2015, down from a forecast $74 million in 2014 and $148 million in 2013.
Shares in Whitehaven, whose mines are concentrated in the Gunnedah basin in NSW, are down by about 75 per cent from historical highs in 2011, and by 12 per cent this year.
Queensland coalminer New Hope s stock is trading 28 per cent lower on [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/court-portefeuilles-74]Court Portefeuilles[/url] the year, and almost 50 per cent off historical highs in late 2011, the peak of the current pricing cycle for both types of coal.
Despite the bleak near-term outlook, ANZ is more upbeat in the longer-term, saying reduced capital expenditure on new mine capacity in Australia and Indonesia plants the seeds for a tighter supply backdrop and price recovery in 2016 and 2017 .
At the same time, it remains positive on longer-term demand dynamics, with coal remaining a base-load power source in China and [with] industrial and infrastructure activity in India gathering pace .

The Shakespeare's Globe production was playing Monday evening inside the U.N.'s New York headquarters.
Just 12 actors were preforming in the stripped-down production that was launched this spring to honor The Bard by traveling to every country on Earth.
"Hamlet," which explores themes of danger, political intrigue and moral corruption, now finds itself in the place established to help resolve international conflicts.
The journey began in London on April 23. the Bard's 450th birthday, and has already made stops from Amsterdam to Prague, Cyprus to the Ukraine.
It concludes at its home theater on April 23, 2016, the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.

The man is one of 29 delegates who attended the 20th International Aids Conference in Melbourne last month and who stayed behind, seeking asylum in Australia, claiming they face persecution in their homelands. The Age has agreed not to name the man or his nationality due to concerns for his safety.
The openly gay man said he had established a successful retail business and married a woman who knew about his sexuality. They recently had a child together. But some people in the community were determined to make his life a misery.

He said over four years his business was looted three times. The first two times, the police refused to prosecute the offenders.
Even if you go to the police, they say, In this country you cannot [be gay]', he said.
The last time it was the police themselves that [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] did the looting [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Speedy Round[/url] and the beating. They took everything, he said.
Soon after that, he paid about $3220 to a man who organised him to come to Melbourne for the AIDS conference. He attended the conference but said his goal was always to seek protection from the Australian government.
I said I did not want to leave without my family, but I could do nothing, he said.
Now, he is staying at a city backpacker hostel, mingling with holidaymakers and other anxious African conference delegates seeking asylum. Among them is a human rights campaigner from the same African country, who said he had faced an attempt on his life because of his work. I don t have faith in my own country to protect me, the man said.
On Monday, the Refugee and Immigration Legal Centre confirmed it has been approached by quite a number of people who attended the high-profile AIDS conference in late July.
The centre s executive director David Manne said under Australian law a person fearing persecution in their homeland had the right to apply for a protection visa.
Without going into individual circumstances, what we can say is the sad reality is that their fears reflect the tragic reality - that around the globe many people are subject to severe brutality and oppression because of the issues that surround HIV and advocacy for people suffering from HIV/AIDS, Mr Manne said.
The International AIDS Society, which organised the conference, released a statement saying steps were taken during the allocation process to ensure all delegates were intending to return home.
However, it is not unusual for there to be a small number of delegates who chose to try seek asylum, the statement said.

Named F5 in honour of the most powerful tornadoes listed under the Fujita scale watch Bill Paxton in Twister for further reference the latest Hennessey is a tribute to winds that reach speeds of more than 420km/h.
Company president John Hennessey says low-drag carbon-fibre bodywork will be key to the new car s success at speed.
Advertisement
We are very excited about this next chapter of the Venom, which brings forth an all-new design that is not only a powerful and unique statement that our clients are looking for, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-cuir-suhali-58]LV Cuir Suhali[/url] but a vehicle that will achieve even higher performance through improved aerodynamics, he says.
We learned a great deal during the development of the Venom GT in breaking the 270mph (434km/h) barrier, and we bring that experience to this new design as we look toward raising the performance bar even higher.
Hennessey says larger turbos bolted to the Venom s handbuilt V8 have the potential to push power outputs beyond 1040kW, well more than the 882kW produced by .
The outgoing Hennessey Venom has a chassis and bodywork based [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-denim-60]LV Monogram Denim[/url] on Lotus previous-generation Exige sports car. Its new model still has ties to Lotus with styling that closely resembles five concept cars shown by the British brand at the Paris motor show in 2010, with the shark-like nose of the Elan and triangular tail-lamps from the Elite concepts living on with Hennessey.
The Venom F5 should rekindle a rivalry between the tiny Texan outfit and the titanic Volkswagen Group which owns the likes of Audi, Lamborghini and Bugatti.
While Hennessey claims to build the world s fastest car, Bugatti s Veyron Super Sport holds the official Guinness World Records title, as judges require a car to complete top speed runs in two directions to ensure tail-winds or downhill slopes do not provide an unfair advantage.
Volkswagen s is arguably the best place in the world to test high-speed vehicles, and the home of record runs by cars such as the McLaren F1 and Bugatti Veyron.
Hennessey is not allowed to test there, so it borrowed a NASA landing strip for its record attempt in February.
The US tuning house narrowly exceeded Bugatti s mark but NASA did not allow them to run [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-mini-64]LV Monogram Mini[/url] in the opposite direction, which prevented Hennessey from officially claiming the Veyron s scalp.

Owens was promoted to the PawSox last Friday and Swihart joined him Monday, each making a Triple-A debut against the Columbus Clippers.
To say Owens was impressive would be an understatement.
The 22-year-old tossed 62/3 innings of two-hit, scoreless ball with three walks and nine strikeouts, two shy of his career high, including the first four Clippers he faced.
And of those nine strikeouts, four third strikes were pitches the Clippers waved at as opposed to taking a good hack.
In all, Owens threw 70 of 100 pitches for strikes in a 5-0 victory, with Bryce Brentz and Derrik Gibson belting solo home runs.
Owens topped out at 94 on McCoy [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] Stadium s radar gun and allowed only two Clippers to advance to scoring position.
He definitely had the pitch mix, including a fastball with late life, Manager Kevin Boles said. I think there s some deception. It looks like it s a sneaky change-up. It was above average.
(Columbus) has a lot of weapons but I thought Henry was unpredictable the whole time. They never really got into a groove. It was a credit to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] him and Swihart behind the plate. I thought the energy and tempo of the game were impressive.
Owens pitched 51/3 innings of hitless ball until Francisco Lindo beat out an infield hit in the sixth.
The fact Owens was using his repertoire against Triple-A instead of Double-A batters didn t faze him.
I wasn t too curious, Owens said. I talked to a lot of guys who ve come up here. They said just stick with your approach. Stick with your game. You re still throwing 60 feet, 6 inches away. I kept with it.
I walked three guys. There were a couple of nice battles. One change-up got away from me and I hit a guy, but other than that I felt like I had good command of my fastball. I could put it in and out and low in the zone, as well as up in the zone when I needed to.
When Boles replaced Owens with John Ely in the sixth, Owens was greeted with a standing ovation from the 8,161 fans at McCoy.
He s very poised, Boles said. The guys love being around him. He lights up the clubhouse. But the game makeup is a plus. He s not afraid to throw any pitch at any time. He was able to throw some left-on-left change-ups.
There isn t any fear of contact. That mound presence, poise and game makeup is a plus for him.
Swihart, who left Portland with a .300 average, was 0 for 3. But the fact he caught Owens again made it an easier night for Swihart than it might have been otherwise.
We re really comfortable together, Swihart said. The transition was great.
He s loose in the clubhouse but is a big-time competitor on the mound. He s not afraid of anybody.
I [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] don t think we missed a beat out there tonight, Owens said. I disagreed with him once and ended up walking a guy, so I should have listened to him.

Taking a day to explore the Thurston County Fair is a summer tradition that Heather Short is passing on to her three kids, ages 6, 7 and 9.She said she s always enjoyed the fair s small-town feel and variety of activities. Our kids just really [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] enjoy the animals and, of course, the rides, said Short, 39, of Lacey, as she waited for her kids to finish rides in the carnival area.By noon Sunday, the fair was on track to beat last year s attendance of 33,350 people by about 3,000, said fair coordinator Theresa Reid. We re trending up, she said. It s good. The boost in tickets was most likely because of a stronger economy, Reid said. People have a little more disposable income, she said. Other factors included sunny weather which always helps the fair attendance new activities and some additional promotional efforts such as bus advertisements, Reid said.The fair s animal barns and show arenas had the most activity throughout the day, with events such as Equine Western Games and the 4-H dog grooming competition. In the fair s cattle competition, a 1,500-pound Black Angus named Gohr s Emulus, or Emmy, won top awards in the FFA show and the adult showmanship contest.Teresa Smith of Lacey said her son s 2-year-old cow gets the royal treatment at home. [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] In fact, she sleeps in a horse stall every night. She has a fan in the barn, and if it gets really hot, we have a (water) mister for her, Smith said. My husband calls her The Gucci Cow because she has more products and has more time spent on her hair than I do. Meantime, at the fair s Author s Corner, Maureen Bieker, sold and signed copies of her new book, The Paper Tiger. This is my first [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton[/url] public appearance, said Bieker, 47, of Olympia, who writes under the pen name Mary Ann Baker. She works in information technology for Thurston County, and spent about three years writing the story about a runaway who joins a circus. The book was released in January by Amazon, and she s already begun to pen a sequel. It s fiction, but the stories and the subplots, those are things that are in my life, Bieker said. It was a story that had to be told it just had to come out.

WACO (August 4, 2014) The Waco-McLennan County Public Health District is investigating what health officials say are higher than normal levels of shigellosis cases in the county.
Shigellosis is an infectious disease that causes diarrhea, fever, vomiting and stomach cramps with a day or two after exposure to the shigella bacteria.
The number of cases has been rising since [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] June, the health district said.
As of Monday, 84 cases had been reported in the county so far this year and half of those occurred within the last two months, the city said.
Twenty-seven cases were reported in 2013.
No indication of contamination has been found in group settings or other public locations, but 75 percent of the cases have involved children 10 or younger, the health district said.
Children and especially those from 2 to 4 are most likely to get the disease and then spread it to family members.
FAQ on Shigella and Shigellosis(Source: Waco-McLennan County Public Health District)
What is shigellosis?
Shigellosis is an infectious disease caused by a group of bacteria called Shigella. Most people who are infected with Shigella develop diarrhea, fever, vomiting and stomach cramps starting a day or two after they are exposed to the bacteria. The [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] diarrhea is often bloody. Shigellosis usually resolves in 5 to 7 days. Persons with shigellosis in the United States rarely require hospitalization. A severe infection with high fever may be associated with children less than 2 years old. Some persons who are infected may have no symptoms at all, but may still pass the Shigella bacteria to others.
How is it spread?
The Shigella bacteria pass from one infected person to the next. Shigella are present in the diarrheal stools of infected persons while they are sick and for up to a week or two afterwards. Most Shigella infections are the result of the bacterium passing from stools or soiled fingers of one person to the mouth of another person.
How is it treated?
Antibiotics can treat and lessen the length of the illness. Persons with mild infections usually recover quickly without antibiotic treatment. It is best to consult your family medical professional for the appropriate treatment for your family. Antidiarrheal agents such as loperamide (Imodium*) or diphenoxylate with atropine (Lomotil*) can make the illness worse and should be avoided.
Shigella is more common in summer than winter. Children, especially toddlers aged 2 to 4, are most likely to get shigellosis. Many cases are related to the spread of illness in child-care settings, and many are the result of the spread of illness in [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] families with small children.
Some tips for preventing the spread of shigellosis:
Wash hands with soap carefully and frequently, especially after going to the bathroom, after changing diapers, and before preparing foods or beverages. Dispose of soiled diapers properly Disinfect diaper-changing areas after using them. Keep children with diarrhea out of child care settings. Supervise hand washing of toddlers and small children after they use the toilet. Do not prepare food for others while ill with diarrhea Avoid swallowing water from ponds, lakes, or untreated pools.

[I had to] because I had no other help. It was better to do that.

LONDON HSBC, one of the world's largest banks, warned Monday that fragile growth in the global economy and rising geopolitical tensions will keep it from taking on [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] greater investment risks.In its earnings update, HSBC said its net income fell 5.4 percent to $9.46 billion in the first half of the year. The bank, which earns nearly two-thirds of its profit in Asia and is closely watched as a barometer of growth in the region, saw its pre-tax profit fall there by 15 percent.Earnings from the investment banking business declined globally by 12 percent to just over $5 billion.Chairman Douglas Flint said that with world economies still recovering from the 2008 economic crisis, it was not the time to take chances."At a [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] time of residual concerns over the sustainability of economic growth in many major markets and with heightened geopolitical tensions apparent, the board supported management's view that this was not the time to expand risk appetite to offset the effect of lower revenues."HSBC, which has operations in 74 countries and territories, also said it is being challenged by increasing regulation, and the costs of implementing it. Recent obligations include performing "highly granular multiple stress tests" that are inconsistent between major jurisdictions and so require duplication of effort."The demands now being placed on the human capital of the firm and on our operational systems capabilities are unprecedented," he said.The bank said cost-cutting has made it leaner than when Stuart Gulliver took over as chief executive in 2011. It has cut tens of thousands of jobs and dumped more than 60 non-strategic businesses.Gulliver said the bank is now stronger and has a solid platform to grow. It said the U.K. should particularly maintain a firm recovery."There are [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton[/url] indications that interest rates could start to rise as early as the fourth quarter of 2014 in the UK and the first half of 2015 in the US, which given the size of our commercial surplus has positive implications for our revenues," he said in a statement.

(CNN) Fighters with the militant group the Islamic State reached the triangle border between Iraq, Syria and Turkey, it said in a message posted on Twitter on Sunday.
ISIS took control of Iraq s largest hydroelectric dam on Iraq s Tigris River, which provides power to the city of Mosul about 50 kilometers (31 miles) to the south, the commander of the Peshmerga Kurdish fighters who had been defending [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] the facility said Sunday.
The dam workers remained inside the facility, which fell after a 24-hour battle, Lt. Col. Herash said.
Peshmerga Kurdish fighters also pulled out of the towns of Zumar and Wana after being surrounded by ISIS [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] fighters and isolated from any support, Kurdistan Democratic Party regional official Ismat Rajab told CNN on Sunday.
The United Nations in Iraq warned that 200,000 civilians were trapped in a dire circumstances after ISIS and associated armed groups seized control of nearly all of Sinjar and Tal Afar districts in Ninewa Province, including the oil fields of Ain Zala and Batma, bordering the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.
Most of the refugees are from the Yezidi sect and have fled to Jabal Sinjar, the United Nations said.
The humanitarian situation of these civilians is reported as dire, and they are in urgent need of basic items including food, water and medicine. 聽An unknown number of civilians are also reported to have moved towards Dahuk and Zako in the Kurdistan Region.
ISIS took control of Sinjar, a small town inhabited by the Yezidi sect, on Saturday, according to police officials.
An ISIS Twitter posting linked to a statement referencing the battle of opening the聽borderline between state of Ninawa and Dohuk provinces.
The Islamic Caliphate legions have launched since this morning operations towards the northwestern regions bordering state of Nineveh, the statement said.

White House Christmas tree again growing in Carbon CountyIt's the third time that Chris Botek's operation 鈥?Crystal Spring Tree Farm 鈥?has won the annual contest and the fourth time it'll have a tree at the White House.Members of the media chronicle the arrival of the 2013 White House Christmas (Chip Somodevilla, Getty )August 05, 2014|By Laura Olson, Call Washington BureauWASHINGTON 鈥?The White House already can check one item off its Christmas list: a holiday tree that, for the fourth time, will be coming from a Carbon County farm.Crystal Spring Tree Farm, located near Lehighton, earned that honor late last month when one of its trees received top marks at the National Christmas Tree Association's annual contest.It's [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] the third time that Chris Botek's farm has won the competition, but the fourth that one of his trees will be the starring attraction in the White House's holiday display. When last year's winner couldn't provide a tree tall enough for the grandiose room, Botek's farm happily supplied one instead.With the exception of last year, the winner of that contest has supplied the main White House tree since 1966.Botek said the White House looks for trees that are around 20 feet tall. The height is needed because the tree's lights are powered from an outlet where a chandelier typically hangs, and an exposed power cord would stand out against the impeccably decorated [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] tree.While having a tree at the White House has nearly become a tradition for his farm, Botek said the repeat success hasn't lessened his excitement."It never gets old," he said of the competition victory and the chance to display their work at the White House. "To us, this is like winning a gold medal."Botek's parents started the Mahoning Township farm in 1964, making this year's win extra special for him because it coincides with the family-run farm's 50th anniversary. The farm grows about 15 varieties of trees, including Douglas firs, the type of tree that wowed judges last month in Michigan.The tree that will adorn the Blue Room won't be selected until this fall, in a process typically attracts national TV cameras and cable channel HGTV. Botek says they'll have multiple trees that can fit the bill, but the official crew likely will be looking for particular traits."I'll have several trees that I'll have in mind, but they know before anybody else knows what their theme is," Botek said. "They may be looking for a tree that's real full, or maybe one that is less [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] full."He and his family will visit the White House to deliver the main tree and potentially others for the Oval Office and the private residence. They'll meet first lady Michelle Obama, as they have in the past, and perhaps the fourth time will be the charm for a meeting with the president himself.Twitter @LauraOlson202-824-8216Featured ArticlesMore:Related ArticlesNovember 27, 2013November 23, 2006November 18, 2006August 21, 2010Find More Stories About|||Please note the green-lined linked article text has been applied commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

Jarrett, who accidentally shot out the window of his office last fall while inspecting a colleague鈥檚 .40 caliber Glock handgun, was demoted in November from first assistant district attorney to assistant district attorney.
鈥淲e had some staff changes, obviously, and we鈥檝e got to make modifications to [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] continue with the future and that鈥檚 what this meeting was about,鈥?Reyna said.
鈥淵ou鈥檙e going to have chances or turnover in the DA鈥檚 office,鈥?he said.
鈥淲e work very hard over here.鈥?
The staff members who remain, he said, 鈥渁re a good group of people.鈥?
鈥淲e recruited well, we trained well and we can adjust,鈥?he said.

BOSTON (CBS) No question about it, .
There is no vaccine for [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] it, or a specific cure; mortality rates are high. And while the current outbreak in Africa is racking up some eyebrow-raising casualties, the numbers remain almost infinitesimal.
The truth is that you have a better chance of choking to death on a cherry pit than being afflicted by Ebola.
But that isn鈥檛 stopping us media types from treating the Ebola outbreak like it鈥檚 the second coming of the Y2K computer meltdown.
Exhibit A was the breathless coverage of Monday鈥檚 news that a patient with 鈥渉igh fever and gastrointestinal symptoms鈥?not unlike those associated with Ebola (or, for that matter, with ingesting a bad buffalo wing at your local tavern) had been admitted to Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City.
The patient had 鈥渞ecently traveled to a West African country where Ebola has been reported,鈥?according to a statement from the hospital.
Uh-oh, cue .
The story led all the network newscasts, and as far as much of the internet and Twitter were concerned, this was it, the start of the apocalypse. [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] Never mind that within a couple of hours the doctors were saying they were pretty sure the patient in question didn鈥檛 have Ebola.
But why let annoying facts spoil our terror party?
Let鈥檚 face it, we love to be petrified.
Zombie shows, rogue nukes, global disease epidemics, all part of the pantheon of horrors we like to imagine are lurking behind every shrub.
I suggest switching to decaf.
There鈥檚 about as much chance of Ebola taking America by storm as there is of . And there鈥檚 no chance of that happening.
Is there?

Women 鈥?are you confusing a bunion with arthritis?
 
No woman wants to hear that she has arthritis, especially in her feet.聽 But with the average person taking thousands of steps each day, it鈥檚 no wonder arthritis affects us.聽
 
Unfortunately, some women confuse what they think is pain from a bunion with arthritis in the big toe joint. This condition is called Hallux limitus and most commonly affects females. We usually see its onset in a patient鈥檚 30s, and it progresses over time.
 
Hallux rigidus (Photo from Wikimedia Commons)
The reason women may confuse Hallux limitus with a bunion is the fact that this condition also causes a bump and enlargement at your big toe joint that may appear similar to a bunion. As the condition progresses, more degenerative changes to the joint occur. More spurs develop, the range of motion gradually decreases and the joint can become very stiff. When the pain increases and the function decreases, we then refer to this as Hallux rigidus.聽
 
How do you get arthritis in your feet?
 
Arthritis in the big toe joint can be hereditary but also due [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton[/url] to structural abnormalities of the foot.聽 Most patients notice a gradual enlargement of the big toe joint with bumps on the top and side of the joint.聽 However, many times it鈥檚 only with increased exercise or activity levels that they may notice increased pain, achiness and sometimes swelling of the joint.聽
 
The condition can easily be diagnosed in a physical exam by your podiatrist and with X-rays of the foot.聽聽The X-rays are needed to determine the extent of the issue and help guide treatment.
 
How do you treat it?
 
Non-surgical: Hallux limitus is initially treated conservatively.聽 Depending on your pain level you may need steroid injections to decrease inflammation in the area, oral anti-inflammatory medication or ice/heat therapy.聽 Changing shoe gear is important as well as adding custom orthotic devices to your shoes to help offload the stress at the big toe joint.
 
If the condition continues to progress, causing pain and decreased function, despite the conservative treatment, surgery is then recommended.聽 The severity of the condition at that time will determine which surgical procedure to do.聽
 
For more minor conditions we can perform a cheilectomy where the spurs are resected from the joint area.聽 This can help improve the joint motion and decrease pain.聽 It is known as a joint-salvaging procedure so the joint is preserved.
 
For more advanced conditions where the joint is significantly degenerated, the joint-salvaging procedures are not [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]LOUIS VUITTON Site Officiel[/url] the best option.聽 We then need to look at replacing or fusing the joint surfaces.聽
 
Depending on your foot structure and the level of joint involvement you may be a candidate for joint replacement where one or both surfaces are replaced with a joint implant.聽 This allows for continued joint range of motion, decreased effect on activity level and improved patient satisfaction.聽
 
There are risks of the implant loosening or failing over time, possibly requiring future [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] surgical revision.聽
 
If you are not a candidate for joint replacement, the next option is joint fusion.聽 This is done by removing the damaged cartilage and fixating the area with screws and possibly a plate.聽 This is a permanent correction of the condition with elimination of the arthritis and improved pain.聽
 
Most patients do very well with this despite having a fused joint and most are able to resume some type of physical activity.聽 Recovery from surgery is quicker for the cheilectomy and joint implant-approximately four to six weeks, but a little longer for the fusion so as to allow adequate time for the bones to fuse-up to eight to 10 weeks.聽
 
Again, conservative treatment is the best option, but if left unchecked, surgery may be the only option left. If you are unsure if you have arthritis in your feet, contact your podiatrist and have a full examination.

MONROVIA, Liberia (August 4, 2014) A specially-equipped evacuation plane landed Monday in Monrovia, Liberia to pick up a second American with Ebola, who will be flown to Atlanta for treatment.
The plane [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] is scheduled to take off early Tuesday with American missionary Nancy Writebol aboard.
Writebol, a long-time missionary from North Carolina, will be treated in a sophisticated isolation unit at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, where former Texas physician Dr. Kent Brantly was taken over the weekend.
Writebol's son, Jeremy, said his mother "is still struggling" but that "there [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] seems to be improvement" and that the family is optimistic she will recover amid a spreading Ebola outbreak.
Brantly, 33, who completed his medical residency at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, landed late Saturday morning in Atlanta after a flight aboard the same plane.
Ebola has killed at [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] least 887 people in four West African countries.

WACO (August 4, 2014) New rules and procedures will be in place when Baylor鈥檚 new McLane Stadium opens later this month.
鈥淭here has been a considerable amount of work put into developing stadium policies and procedures that will provide a safe environment and an enjoyable experience for our fans, student-athletes and officials,鈥?,鈥?said Baylor Vice President and Director of [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] Athletics Ian McCaw.
A new Baylor Gameday fan page went online Monday that provides information about everything from parking to tailgating to stadium policies.
The university also put a gameday website online Monday for students.
Key Policies(Source: Baylor University)
ARTIFICIAL NOISEMAKERSPolicy: Big 12 Conference rules do not permit artificial noisemakers to be brought into or used in McLane Stadium.
Reason: The Big 12 implemented this rule in order to prevent the distraction of the participants and officials in the game.
ANIMALSPolicy: Service animals are welcome in McLane Stadium. All other animals will not be allowed to enter.
Reason: A service animal is trained to perform tasks for an individual with a disability.
BAGS & BACKPACKSPolicy: Backpacks are not allowed in McLane Stadium. Bags and purses 12" x 6" x 12" or smaller will be allowed in McLane Stadium.
Reason: National and local security officials have designated backpacks and large bags as security risks. Unattended bags create a security threat. Bags may not be left at the gates and will be confiscated, removed and discarded immediately.
BANNERS & POLESPolicy: Banners may not be hung and poles may not be brought into McLane Stadium unless approved by Baylor Athletics.
Reason: Banners or poles in McLane Stadium can be a nuisance to other fans by obstructing their view of the game, and can create safety concerns for those in the area.
CAMERAS, TRIPODS & MONOPODS: [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] Policy: Cameras with lenses 4" or smaller are permitted in McLane Stadium. Tripods & monopods are not allowed into McLane Stadium.
Reason: Large lens cameras, tripods and monopods interfere with the game and others' enjoyment of the game.
CHAIRBACK SEATS (PORTABLE): Policy: Portable chairbacks and seat cushions will not be allowed in McLane Stadium, however, fans may rent chairs from IMG College Seating for the season at www.bubearchairs.com or on gameday at locations throughout the stadium.
Reason: Wide chairback seats overlap into the seat of the fan next to you & many encroach into the legroom of the fan behind you. The guest relations staff at Floyd Casey Stadium frequently was contacted with this complaint. The chairbacks and cushions available from IMG College Seating are customized for the benches at McLane Stadium.
FIELD ACCESS: Policy: Access to the field shall be limited to participating student-athletes, coaches, officials, support personnel and properly credentialed individuals at all times.
Reason: For the safety of participants and spectators alike, at no time before, during or after a contest shall spectators be permitted onto the field.
RE-ENTRY INTO MCLANE STADIUM:Policy: McLane Stadium will have a no re-entry policy effective with the 2014 football season. While exceptions will be made for medical emergency situations, this move brings Baylor into line with 46 other FBS schools, including several Big 12 schools, all 32 NFL teams, other SMG-operated facilities and several area high schools.
Reason: Safety. To ensure a safe and more secure environment for everyone at McLane Stadium, re-entry will not be allowed once you have left the stadium. Keeping our fans, coaches, student-athletes and officials safe and secure on gameday is of the highest priority.
SMOKING & TOBACCOPolicy: Smoking (both traditional & non-traditional) and any form of tobacco will not be permitted at McLane Stadium.
Reason: Baylor University is a tobacco-free, smoke-free campus.
UMBRELLAS
Policy: Umbrellas are not allowed in McLane Stadium. Umbrellas left at the gate/entrance will be confiscated and discarded during security sweeps.
Reason: Umbrellas are a sight obstruction for other fans, and can be a safety hazard. Fans should bring appropriate rain gear in case of inclement weather
TICKETSPolicy: All persons (ages 2 & up) must present a ticket for admission to McLane Stadium.
Reason: This policy is for the convenience and safety of all ticket holders. Even the smallest of Baylor fans sitting on their parents' lap can be an inconvenience to the fan sitting in the next seat and a safety risk for the child.
VIDEO CAMERASPolicy: Video cameras are not permitted in McLane Stadium.
Reason: Baylor Athletics is obligated to protect the television and digital [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] rights granted by the Big 12 Conference to television networks and other media. By prohibiting video cameras except for use by credentialed working media, Baylor Athletics can best manage that obligation.

Efforts are under way to secure new labour hire companies to take on the contracts of more than 3000 other employees at as many as 15 offices nationwide within the next few days, as the company seeks to keep the contractors at work.
In the Hunter Valley, an estimated 220 truck operators and trainees are to be transitioned to Skilled Engineering, with about 35 light vehicle trades moving across to either Skilled Engineering or WorkPac. Another 80 staff engaged on various other client sites are being moved across to other suppliers, with efforts also underway to finalise the positions of a number of supervisory staff.

''We are seeking to transfer as many [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-homme-59]Portefeuille Homme[/url] as we can to existing labour hire companies,'' a spokesman for the receiver said. ''The receiver is confident it can place just about all of them something like 90 per cent.''
Despite the optimism over the outlook for the contract employees, an estimated 180 full-time employees of Bluestone Global have already lost their jobs.
The company's collapse follows a failed $4 million share issue which was aimed at staving off a chronic lack of liquidity .
The company had earlier shut its offshore operations while also moving to find a buyer unsuccessfully for its mine services arm, ResCo, based in the Hunter Valley.
Late last year Bluestone installed a new chairman and chief executive as it sought to give the company a new lease of life, but its efforts failed.
The company had traded unprofitably for several years. After new chairman Andrew Plympton joined the company, $15 [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-long-51]Portefeuille long[/url] million in costs were removed.
''We got it to near break-even,'' he said, but a failed rights issue along with a lack of success in pursuing merger opportunities left the company exposed.
''The issue for us is to ensure staff continuity,'' he said, ''and ensure as minimal disruption as is possible for employees.''
Clients typically have a panel of labour hire companies servicing their needs, and they will ultimately determine which of the companies existing contractors will be transferred to, he said.
It is believed Bluestone has receivables of more than $21 million, along with a debt funding facility [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/echarpe-louis-vuitton-14]锟斤拷charpe Louis Vuitton[/url] of about $14 million and sundry assets such as engineering and workshops which may be sold.
Bluestone Recruitment lists seven recruitment offices in Queensland - Coopers Plains, Rocklea and Virginia in Brisbane, as well as regional locations in Townsville, Mackay, Cairns and the Gold Coast.

BEIJING 鈥?Nearly 100 people were killed in [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] recent clashes in the northwestern province of Xinjiang, China said Sunday, making it the deadliest incident of ethnic unrest in the country since 2009.
After days of secrecy shrouding the violence last week in Shache, the official New China News Agency said that 37 civilians were killed by a gang that ambushed vehicles on the main road of the city, near the border with Tajikistan and Afghanistan. Fifty-nine attackers were shot and killed by police, and 215 were arrested.
Citing a report by Zhang Chunxian, the regional Communist Party secretary, Chinese state media described the attack as organized and premeditated and launched by terrorists both inside and outside China. They identified the mastermind as Nuramat Sawut, and said he had close ties with the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, a shadowy group that seeks independence for Xinjiang, which is sometimes referred to as East Turkestan.
Shache, also known as Yarkand, is mostly populated by Uighurs, a Turkic ethnic minority.
The New China News Agency [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] said the violence broke out early Monday when a gang armed with knives and axes attacked a police station and government offices in Elixku township.
The gangsters also set roadblocks on the Bachu-Shache Road and stopped vehicles passing by, before slashing passengers indiscriminately and forcing civilians to join them in the terror attack, the report said.
The official account was corroborated by one resident of Shache, a 35-year-old secretary at an insurance company.
They attacked cars, trucks and buses. They killed the drivers of the vehicles, smashed and burned them. Police opened fire and shot some, but others ran into the cornfields, said the woman, who gave only her family name, Ma.
We ve been told to stay in our homes and not go out much for the next few days.
Uighur sources said they believe the attack was started by members of two families who had sons who had been sentenced to death for previous incidents. Once the shooting started, other Uighurs joined in, those sources said.
I believe it is possible that the Chinese overused their firepower. To make sure the incident is reported correctly, I hope the Chinese government will allow international journalists into the area to interview witnesses and make sure that the safety of Uighur witnesses is guaranteed afterward, Dilax Raxit, a spokesman for the World Uyghur Congress, said earlier [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] in the week.

Zinc mining waste cleanup in Upper Saucon nearly completeEastern Industries, which holds the mining permit for the Lehigh University land and is responsible for its remediation, is close to finishing the job, state regulators say.August 04, 2014|By Scott Kraus, Of The Morning CallWhen Lehigh University came into a windfall of land donated to the school in 2012 by the Donald B. and Dorothy Stabler Foundation, it came with one piece of baggage.A chunk of the 755 acres of donated property included contaminated limestone tailings a form of zinc mining waste that the state insisted had to be cleaned up before that portion could be developed.Nearly two years later, Eastern Industries, the local company that holds the mining permit for the land and is responsible for its remediation, is close to finishing the job, state regulators say. It has stabilized the property, layered clean soil and rock over the zinc piles and seeded the newly-graded property to stabilize it.Now [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy Round[/url] the company just needs to grow some grass."This was an agreed-upon remedy, provided the vegetation takes," said Colleen Connolly, spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Protection. "DEP will inspect to see if the planting and seeding is satisfactory at the site. Eastern Industries just has to make sure the vegetation progresses."DEP and Lehigh County Conservation District inspectors visited the site in June to inspect the work, she said."It is a process DEP required, and we have been following their protocol," said Rusty Taft, Eastern's land permit and environmental manager.The cleanup was designed to prevent dust emanating from the mining waste, which includes zinc and arsenic, from being caught up and dispersed in the wind.State officials had initially given the company until the end of August 2013 to complete the regrading, and the end of September 2013 to grow the grass.Last year, Connolly said, dust from the piles was not blowing off the 139-acre former mine site, and it was not a public health threat.Taft said the site needed some "additional maintenance" before that work could be completed, pushing it into 2014.The cleanup is part of the process of closing out the mining permit, which will pave the way for the eventual development of the land.Former Lehigh University President Alice Gast told the Upper Saucon Township supervisors last year that the university hopes to sell or lease 300 acres of property for development. The land is near Route 309, Interstate 78 and Center Valley Parkway north of the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley.Medical device maker B. Braun has already announced plans to build a new U.S. corporate headquarters on one parcel in that area.Lehigh has established a separate entity LU Properties LLC to plan for the long-term use of the donated property.University spokesman Jordan Reese said Lehigh is encouraged by Eastern Industries' cleanup efforts."As the parcel of Stabler land closest to Lehigh's existing campuses, Lehigh's long-term plan for the property is mission-focused, meaning it makes the most sense for future academic use," he said. "We are working on a strategic plan for the property that will involve input and ideas from campus."Testing performed in July 2012 showed soil samples from all 20 locations in the limestone piles on the contaminated parcel to the east of the Promenade Shops contained levels of arsenic that exceeded certain statewide health standards.Zinc was detected at levels exceeding state guidelines in one sample taken in the limestone piles.Complaints from one resident about dust escaping the site prompted an investigation that determined that two of the berms that contain the limestone had crumbled, exposing the piles to wind. The berms were to be repaired as part of the reclamation project, Connolly said.If the site is developed, the builder will have to work with DEP to safely address the arsenic contained in the zinc mining waste.Twitter @skraus610-820-6745Featured ArticlesMore:Related ArticlesAugust 15, 2013August 12, 2013November 14, 2012May 7, 2012May 11, 2012Find More Stories About|||Please note the green-lined linked article text has been applied commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

Times are changing and Ralph Wilson Stadium, home of the NFL's Buffalo Bills, are going to keep up.

The gloom enveloping the mining sector deepened Tuesday with the collapse of a labour hire company putting thousands of jobs at risk just as contractor Downer EDI warned of falling profits and coal miner Peabody cut output further at its local mines.
Drill service outfit Ausdrill also suspended trading in its shares late on Monday as it finalises a heavy asset write-down in the wake of a fall in demand.
Downer EDI said its year to June 2015 net profit would be about $205 million, well down from the $216 million profit booked in the financial year just finished, with the fall attributed to the ongoing pressures being felt in the mining sector.
''It's hard all across the business,'' chief executive Grant Fenn told analysts. ''Across all underlying businesses .. margins are down. We have to get our business as tight as we can.''

He was speaking in the wake of the collapse of Bluestone Global, a labour hire company, which left its receiver, KordaMentha, scrambling to keep its 3500 contractors at work. The largest block of contractors is in the mine services sector in the Hunter Valley. By late Tuesday the positions for nearly all of these contractors had been finalised, with an estimated [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/joaillerie-louis-vuitton-12]Joaillerie Louis Vuitton[/url] 220 truck operators and trainees moving to Skilled Engineering, as 35 light vehicle trades moved either to Skilled Engineering or to WorkPac, and another 80 staff working at other sites moving to other contractors.
But the jobs of thousands of others remain in limbo with the receiver, KordaMentha, scrambling to transfer the contractors across to new labour hire firms. Bluestone had faced ongoing liquidity problems which had been exacerbated by its failure to raise $4 million from shareholders in May. It had earlier overhauled its board and appointed a new chief executive, while closing an offshore arm in the Philippines and putting its mine services arm, ResCo, on the auction block.
''The receiver is seeking to transfer as many [workers] as it can to existing labour hire companies,'' a spokesman for KordaMentha said. ''The receiver is confident it can place just about all of them.'' Even so, as many as 180 full-time employees lost their jobs with [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] its collapse.
Along with its exposure to the mining industry, Bluestone also has a large presence in transport/warehousing and sections of the hotel industry.
It collapsed as contract driller Ausdrill flagged a heavy write-down of the book value of its assets as it battles a slide in demand for its services. Another drill contractor, Boart Longyear, has been also struggling to stay afloat as it pursued a range of restructuring options, to date with no success, which has left its share price languishing.
None of the bigger operators in the sector are willing to call the bottom, with all operators preparing for further near term pain. Downer Tuesday, for example, said it expects profit margins in the mine services sector will remain under pressure, which prompted it to cut its forecast for its year to June 2015 net profit to $205 million.
''We're expecting margins in mining to return to more sustainable levels of about 7.5 per cent,'' Mr Fenn told analysts following the release of its results, reflecting his view that margins will continue to contract.
In June Downer lost a contract on the large Goonyella mine in central Queensland, although it continues to work on another mine in the area, South Blackwater, which is owned by the same company, a joint venture between BHP and Mitsubishi Corp. Following the loss of the Goonyella contract Downer shares were sold off sharply, and are yet to recover.
''The share price reaction to the Goonyella loss was overdone, and we trade at a 40 per cent discount to pretty mediocre peers,'' Mr Fenn said.
In response, Downer on Monday unveiled a share buyback as it seeks to give its share price a lift, which would give it a tradeable currency to pursue merger and acquisition options over the next 12 to 18 months. It gave no specific details of how many shares could be [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Artsy[/url] bought or at what price.
For Peabody, it is slashing output at its Burton mine in central Queensland, which contract miner Thiess operates. It said annual output will be cut to just 1 million tonnes of coking coal annually from 2.5 million, citing the fact that the mine is its highest cost mine in Australia. It was unclear how many jobs are affected.

MOUNT BALDY, Calif. (AP) - About 2,500 people were stranded early Monday after thunderstorms caused mountain mudslides in Southern California, while one person was found dead in a flooded creek, authorities said.Mud, rocks and debris several feet deep blocked roads in the communities of Oak Glen and Forest Falls, and it could be several hours before crews cleared the way through, San Bernardino County Fire spokesman Ryan Beckers said. All [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] residents in the two towns were accounted for and no injuries were reported, he said.To the west, a body was found Sunday in a car that was swept into the rain-swollen water course in Mount Baldy and overturned, fire spokesman Chris Prater said. Coroner's officials identified the victim on Monday as Joo Hwan Lee, 48, of El Segundo.About 1,500 residents of Oak Glen, and another 1,000 residents of Forest Falls were unable to get out because of thick debris flows caused by flash floods. The stranded include 500 children and adults who had arrived at a Forest Falls campground Sunday morning."Our concern is that they're isolated at that campground and no longer have access out of the mountain," Kyle Hauducoeur, another county fire spokesman, said.Authorities made reverse 911 calls to urge residents to stay put while crews clear the roads with bulldozers. The muck was so thick it submerged a van in Forest Falls, while on Mount Baldy water swept a [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] hot tub into the road.Flash floods led to the rescue of several people. Hauducoeur said a woman in Mount Baldy was rescued from her house before it was buried in mud. Four additional homes in the Bear Creek area were damaged by the debris flow, he said.San Bernardino County resources were stretched thin by the storm. Scores of swift-water rescue teams and fire engines had been dispatched to far-flung areas, county Fire Capt. Josh Wilkins told the Los Angeles Times."Every rescue unit we have, every fire engine we have in San Bernardino County" had been sent out, Wilkins said. "We are literally approaching the maximum right now in terms of our call volume."In the Mount Baldy a

Donna, a former bartender and server at Stahley s and the former Zodiac Club in Allentown, dined at the Spring Valley Inn several years ago and had an itching to reopen one [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton Soldes[/url] of her favorite former hangouts.So, the couples set out on a daunting task in January 2013 to update the building s facilities without losing its old-world charm.They installed new kitchen equipment and ripped out old carpeting to restore the hardwood floors, among other upgrades, but they kept the restaurant s original layout, including its large rectangular bar.For diners looking to immerse themselves in the tranquil locale, a 55-seat outdoor pavilion known as The Belvidere also was given a face-lift complete with new fans, furniture, screens and carpeting. With the greenery and stone fountains, it really makes for a beautiful setting to host a party, Donna said. We had my son s wedding here on July 4. One of the Spring Valley Inn s biggest hallmarks, its dishes made with fresh trout from the backyard pond, also has made a triumphant return. We had 100 trout on Friday and went through 75 over the weekend, said head chef Robert Martin, who worked at the Spring Valley Inn for 28 years beginning at age 12. We just got another shipment of 200 more delivered today [Monday]. We ll never run out of trout. I can promise you that.

Pending a league physical on George to confirm he will be out for the season, the Pacers will have the mid-level exception value of $5.305 million to spend on one free agent -- or a player claimed off waivers -- for one season. That, or Indiana can make a trade and acquire a player whose salary is the mid-level exception plus $100,000. In a trade, the incoming player would also have [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] to be in the final year of his contract.
The odd and seemingly unnecessary quirk in the disabled player exception is that any player added on the rule is added to the team's total on top of George's salary. The problem in signing a player without shipping away salary is that Indiana, with total salaries at $74.8 million, is already well over the salary cap and about $2 million away from the聽, according to聽.
Indiana could use the full $5.305 million but would then be paying taxes.
If the Pacers need bodies, it's likely they'll go after a perimeter player who will command something that will keep them under the luxury tax.聽 that聽 and聽could be on Indiana's short-list, while less-substantiated rumors have [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] named as a target, most likely because he's one of the few known small forwards who haven't signed.
All that said, Indiana can stand pat and roll with its current options. Veteran small forward聽 signed this summer and one of last year's free agency signings,聽, could be an offensive weapon without the ball. The Pacers could also turn to European combo forward , who also signed this offseason, or the team's 2013 first-round draft pick, second-year swingman聽.
The disabled player exception in [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] this case won't give the Pacers too many options, but should Indiana see it giving them a few more wins that are worth sacrificing internal development, they have it in their back pocket.

While his family does laps around Lady Liberty, I ask Dante about a recent ESPN piece that has dubbed him the Specifically, whether he thinks his secretive status outside of the U-19 tournament, most scouts haven't seen him play 5-on-5 ball in nearly a year will hurt him on draft night.
"Well, I think coming from overseas, you're always going to be a 'man of mystery,' but it doesn't bother me," he says. "Because I'm the one everyone wants to know more about. It doesn't change who I am as a player, or a person. It's just that nobody here knows me [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/milticolor-monogramme-ceinture-25]Milticolor monogramme ceinture[/url] yet."
That outsider angle is also the focal point of a new that basically portrays Exum as the basketball-playing Balki Bartokomous (in one spot, he mistakes an electric bill for fan mail). But one gets the impression his "aw-shucks" attitude is largely for show; Exum is repped by the Landmark Sports Agency, which counts among its clients Bryant and James Harden, and, in addition to Adidas, he also has a deals with Red Bull and trading-card company Panini.
It's the beginning of a solid portfolio, and when coupled with his NBA salary, it all amounts to a pretty nice payday for the 18-year-old. Though, if he's cashing checks, they're going straight into his savings account.
"I'm starting to come into all this money, but I can't think of anything I actually want," he says. "I'm getting free shoes and clothes through Adidas. If I want technology, I get it sent to me. I'm at a point where I don't know what to buy, which is good, because I like to save.
"The most important thing is to focus on basketball," he continues. "Because you could have the money, but if you focus on that, sooner or later, the game's going to fade for you."
Answers like that are, of course, clich s by now, though, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/trunks-et-sacs-damier-ceinture-28]Trunks et sacs Damier ceinture[/url] in Exum's case, you kind of believe him. After all, over the next 24 hours, the maturity that NBA teams rave about will repeatedly be put on display. After the trip to the Statue of Liberty, he and his family take another ferry and another van to Red Bull Arena in New Jersey, where he'll do a photo op with another friend of the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/chaussures-louis-vuitton-33]Chaussures Louis Vuitton[/url] brand, soccer great Thierry Henry. Along the way, Red Bull reps will politely remind him to tweet specific hashtags, and he will be asked to participate in a series of Snapchat videos for the NBA.
On Wednesday, after a few hours of sleep, he and several other draftees will sit in folding chairs on a sweltering swath of asphalt, watch New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio give a speech about the importance of nutrition, then run students through a series of skills tests as part of the NBA Fit program. There are photo sessions and countless interviews, cameras everywhere, traffic jams and buses that shuttle him across the city, usually at their leisure. The NBA Draft does not seem like a lot of fun.
"It's been a bit of a roller coaster," Exum laughs.
And then comes Thursday night in Brooklyn.

Chaka Fattah Jr., son of United States Congressman Chaka Fattah and stepson of prominent NBC10 anchor Renee Chenault-Fattah, turned himself in to federal authorities on Tuesday morning. He has been charged with, in part, making false statements to banks to obtain loans, filing false income tax returns, failing to pay federal taxes, and stealing from the Philadelphia School District, according to an unsealed indictment in the case.
Here s what the U.S. Attorney alleges in its indictment:



鈥?Fattah Jr. falsely [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] obtained business lines of credit from banks and used that money to pay gambling debts, buy jewelry, make car payments, and pay for utilities, clothing, and electronics, among other things. One loan in particular 鈥斅燼 $50,000 loan from United Bank 鈥斅爓as allegedly used to pay more than $33,000 in gambling debts at casinos. The indictment also claims that Fattah wrote a $17,500 check from a business account to cover gambling debts at Sugarhouse.
鈥?He tried to settle debts with banks for less than what was owed, claiming that his company in question, 259 Strategies, was out of business, when in fact he was earning between $6,250 and $37,500 per month through that company, according to the government.
鈥?He stole funds provided by the federal government to the School District of Philadelphia and then concealed that theft.
鈥?He filed false income tax returns for 2005, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] 2006, 2008 and 2009.
Fattah Jr. had been under investigation for more than two years.
In February 2012, the FBI removed subpoenaed documents from his home at the Ritz-Carlton on Broad Street. Their investigation reportedly involved whether Fattah Jr. landed big-ticket contracts thanks to his father's position. The feds have been taking a close look at the younger Fattah's finances.
Back in July 2013, a source close to the investigation told Philadelphia magazine that . One year later, it looks like his time is up.
On Tuesday morning in front of the Federal Courthouse, Fattah Jr. told that he has [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton W[/url] done nothing wrong. In March, Fattah Jr. filed a claiming that the agency has ruined his ability to make a living in Philadelphia.
According to the U.S. Attorney, Fattah Jr. could face a "substantial term of imprisonment" as well as fines of more than $13 million.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) 聽MILWAUKEE (WITI) 鈥斅燗t the start of last year, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke ordered an aggressive weekend [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] Driving Under the Influence (DUI) initiative to rid the Milwaukee County freeway system of drunken drivers.
This weekend鈥檚 initiative from Friday, August 1st at 4:00 p.m. through Sunday, August 3rd at 6:00 a.m. resulted in the arrest of ten drunken drivers, with three repeat offenders.
The average PBT result was .15.
48-year-old Malcolm Norfleet of Milwaukee was arrested for DUI-7th.

His driver鈥檚 license was suspended.
Norfleet鈥檚 PBT result was .22.
Norfleet鈥檚 prior arrests for drunken driving were in April 1999, May 1999, November 2000, May 2006, October 2006 and November 2009. He has an extensive criminal record.

The 'Beauty and the Beat 'singer met Kerr backstage at a Victoria's Secret show in 2012, and later claimed the model said she wanted to "make him a man", according to .

Bieber has continued to taunt Bloom since the .
After posting (then removing) a photograph of bikini-clad Kerr and a photograph (which hasn't been removed) of Bloom looking sad, Bieber reportedly also banned the actor from a birthday party.
The Ibiza party was for Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci's 40th birthday and had a star-studded list of attendees, including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Kate Moss, Nicole Cambell, Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner.
amp;amp;nbsp;
The Lord of the Rings star was also apparently headed to the celebrations, but when he arrived Bieber's security insisted that party organisers should keep Bloom from entering, according to .
Safe in the knowledge he wouldn't have to face Bloom any time soon, 20-year-old Bieber partied with Kardashian's younger sister at the birthday bash and "looked like he didn [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-mahina-cuir-65]LV Mahina cuir[/url] t have a care in the world" according to the Page Six source.
While it's not clear what started the fight (which occured in front of a host of celebrities including Paris Hilton and Leonardo Di Caprio), taken by onlookers shows the aftermath.
A source close to Bloom told The Mirror a combination of wine at the restaurant and exhaustion from his recent trans-Atlantic trip were factors that caused Bloom to lash out at [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-toile-monogram-67]LV Toile Monogram[/url] the polarising pop star.
Bloom, 37, and Kerr, 31, split up late in 2013, one year after rumours circulated of her alleged relationship with the young singer.
The model's team strongly denied all allegations of infidelity.

If attendance at the Promax/BDA conference is any indication, the industry recognizes the increasing importance of branding in a multichannel world.
Attendance for the PROMAX/BDA convention, which draws promotions and marketing types from across the TV business, has not returned to its halcyon days of the late 1990s--4,673 attendees in Toronto in 1998. for example--but the gathering is back on the upswing. This year鈥檚 show, which ran June 21-23 in New York, drew 3,227 attendees, up slightly from 2004 (3,025), but up dramatically from 1,850 for the 2002 event in [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] Los Angeles. However, it is still off from numbers like 4,673 attendees in Toronto in 1998.
CEO Jim Chabin says the near-capacity crowd (the Marriott Marquis can hold 3,300) represents a diverse group, with representatives from broadcast stations, cable networks and international companies turning out.聽 This year, for the first time, the organization invited media buyers to attend for free, which Chabin says drew a promising crowd from [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] ad agencies. He says next year Promax/BDA will invite media buyers and station general managers to come at no charge.
A number of high-profile TV executives turned out to address the conference, including Disney Media Networks co-chiefs Anne Sweeney, and George Bodenheimer, NBC Universal Television Group President Jeff Zucker, ABC News Nightline anchor Ted [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] Koppel, and domestic diva Martha Stewart.
Chabin says the top-flight speakers and renewed attendance proves the industry鈥檚 commitment to promotion and marketing. 鈥淚t is absolutely obvious to those participating that, with so many choices and ways to get your news and entertainment, the television industry can no longer cut its way to profitability and get the returns it wants to get by cutting back on promo and marketing,鈥?he said.

ELTOPIA Alan Schreiber s truck bounces along a rutted road past row upon row of crops.Blueberries, asparagus, apples, cantaloupe, Brussels sprouts, Concord grapes, Merlot grapes, peaches, pears, cherries, onions, pumpkins, potatoes, tomatoes, sugar beets, alfalfa. Over 300 varieties of produce, much of it part of experiments on disease, pests and growing techniques. Every row here is something different, the Franklin County farmer said. There s Fava beans, Chinese cabbage, early green cabbage, green cabbage, red cabbage, savoy cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, another kind of kale, bok choy, some Napa cabbage, peppers, melons, tomatoes, tomatillos, eggplant. It goes on and on and on. But the crop that Schreiber figures will be more lucrative than any of them was completely unfamiliar to him a foreign world. Until a grower came to him wanting to know how to control mites on marijuana plants. That s when Schreiber realized he d better learn about the cannabis plant.He turned out to have a source of knowledge on his own staff.The 52-year-old Schreiber met 25-year-old Tom Balotte about a year ago and hired him as a mechanic. Balotte had worked on a Virginia Tech research farm before moving with his girlfriend to Washington state.He put his mechanical mind to work fixing and [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] designing equipment, like a shield he built to expand the space that could be used for research by keeping pesticide being sprayed on some plants away from others.The Romania-born, Texas-raised son of a botanist and a mechanical engineer, Balotte s tattoos tell part of his story. The design on his arm relates to shooting airsoft guns, the one on his fist to a favorite metal band, and the ink on his back and his other arm to the worlds of video games The Elder Scrolls and World of Warcraft. A three-monitor display at home immerses him in his games.Schreiber is a straitlaced Eastern Washington farmer. He grew up on a farm and earned doctoral degrees in entomology and pesticide toxicology, then worked for the Environmental Protection Agency and as a Washington State University professor before going into commercial research. He voted against Initiative 502 that legalized recreational marijuana.If they re something of an odd couple, it turned out they were well suited for collaboration on the new project Schreiber had in mind. I ve got the pest management experience, Schreiber said, and he s got the kind of applied, real-world, make-things-grow skills. The full realization came months after Balotte was hired, during a conversation over beers at a 30th-floor Portland restaurant at the end of a long day at an agricultural conference. It turned out Balotte s past tinkering included growing marijuana in a closet.They started to realize Balotte s experience could be a perfect match for Schreiber s hopes of doing cutting-edge research [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] and development on the plant and its pests. He was made for a project like this, Schreiber said.Balotte isn t a pot smoker, although he travels in the right circles. I wish I could, but I was just too sensitive to it, Balotte said. My friends, it looks like they re having the most fun in the world, and I m sitting there with my beer in my hand just sitting there with envy, because it looks awesome. Now Schreiber has applied for [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Lockit[/url] a license. His is one of more than 2,400 applications still waiting after the state Liquor Control Board has approved fewer than 140 growers.Meantime, Balotte has designed a prototype of a hydroponic growing contraption. If you want to try some advanced growing techniques you have to involve some engineering, some design, and that s really what I like, Balotte said.The prototype involves PVC tubes dotted with holes like giant flutes, each hole a spot for a plant to stick out of while its roots are bathed in nutrients. The thing is gathering dust in a greenhouse while they wait for a license.If approved, they expect they can pioneer new ways of not only growing the plant, but keeping it from being destroyed by pests and contaminants.Schreiber expects a huge demand for information among the licensed growers. The first time that somebody has $100,000 worth of this that they lose because they get an aphid infestation, a mite infestation, powder mildew or Botrytis (a fungus), he said, ... people will want to know how to control these pests.

(August 3, 2014) Soccer players cover a lot of ground, but for the guys on the Waco Texans, travel experience is limited.
"I went to Mexico," said Texans midfielder Zachary Gibson.
"Mexico," sweeper Jon Sabido said.
"Mexico," outside back Raul Ponce said.
"I've been to Mexico, that's it," Texans goalie Zach Hammond said.
"It's because it's so close," added Sabido.
And for that trip, they didn't even get off the ground.
"I've drove there," Ponce said.
"Drove there," Sabido said.
"Very long drive," Gibson said.
Which explains why they're a little nervous.
"Never been on an airplane," Sabido said. "I [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] just know that I'm supposed to chew gum."
England is the ear-popping destination, where five players from the team will compete with the Superclubs national team, against some of the best players in the world.
"This is a once in a lifetime trip," Galvan said.
"It's a once in a lifetime trip," Gibson added.
"A once in a lifetime thing for me," Ponce said.
"It's just an opportunity of a lifetime," Hammond said.
Texans head coach Brian Cunningham has had players compete on the national team each of the past four years.
"What they can take from those professional coaches in England and bring home and apply to what we do on a daily basis, it's just a win-win for us all," he said.
The five players going this year will train [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] in Liverpool, one of the most respected soccer cities in the world.
"The opportunity like this for them, it's just absolutely tremendous," Cunningham said.
And while each of them is going there to learn, their biggest goal is to show that soccer in central Texas is some of the best around.
"We're going to bring high intensity and show them what Waco, Texas got," Galvan said.
"I don't [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] see any reason why we can't compete at the highest level with some of these English boys," Gibson said.
"We're from a small town, but great talent can come from anywhere. Hopefully we're here to show it off and prove we can do something," Ponce said.

Which male country star has been recently declared the most downloaded in history? The answer may come as a surprise. Jason Aldean been named the Top Male Country Artist by the RIAA this week, having a total of more than 21.5 million certified digital song downloads or on-demand streams. In short, that makes him the most downloaded male country artist in history.
Think about that for a moment. Normally, the first name that comes to mind upon hearing "in history" would be "Garth Brooks" 鈥?who holds the distinction of being the best-selling artist of any genre in the United States [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton SC Bag[/url] since 1991, with figures that topple even rock's the Beatles.
But Brooks (like the Beatles for a very, very long time) has staunchly refused digital sales of his catalog, to allow his music to be sold via his official website at an unspecified date this year. Brooks has a big game of catch-up to play to get into Aldean territory.
So do other artists whose catalogs have long been available digitally, including Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, and even King of Country George Strait. They also remain in Aldean's rearview.

Aldean's surprising RIAA accolade also comes despite a very public cheating scandal with American Idol alum Brittany Kerr, which directly preceded his separation from Jessica Ussery, his longtime wife and mother of his two young daughters.
While this type of affair may be commonplace in Hollywood circles, country fans are notoriously unforgiving of such shenanigans. Proof positive? LeAnn Rimes, whose once-skyrocketing musical career is still recovering from her 2009 affair with (now [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] husband) Eddie Cibrian.
Whether this speaks to the notion of "bro-country" having yet another advantage over the females in the genre, or [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Sistina[/url] simply that Aldean navigated his drama with unusual caution (although he has been dating Kerr for more than a year, the pair has only made one public appearance together, back June), Aldean's musical success is unparalleled in the digital world.
Speaking of his newly minted status as a top-downloadable artist, the 37-year-old Aldean didn't attempt to analyze the data, rather he simply accepted the title with humility and grace. "This is such a huge honor, and one that everyone on my team earned together," he said in a statement. "I love country music, and I wouldn鈥檛 want to be doing anything else 鈥?there was never a Plan B for me."
Aldean is currently working on his sixth studio album and is on tour through the fall season.

The Rev. Al Sharpton introduces Ramsey Orta at the funeral of Eric Garner at Bethel Baptist Church in the Brooklyn borough of New York on Wednesday, July 23, 2014. Garner died in police custody after an officer placed him in an apparent chokehold. Orta shot [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] video of the incident.

NEW YORK (AP) 鈥?The man who recorded video of a fatal police chokehold in New York City has been arrested on gun charges, police said Sunday.
Police said 22-year-old Ramsey Orta was arrested Saturday night on Staten Island, a few blocks from where officers confronted his friend Eric聽Garner on July 17.
Orta, whose recording of an officer restraining Garner with a chokehold fueled outcry against the police, is charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
Police said Orta had a previous weapon conviction that prohibited him from possessing a firearm.
He is due in court this month on robbery charges stemming from a May arrest and an assault charge from an arrest three days before Garner s death, according to court records.
Orta s latest arrest came a day after the city s medical examiner ruled Garner s death a homicide caused by the officer s [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] chokehold, as well as the compression of his chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police.
Patrick Lynch, the president of the city s largest police union, described the encounter between Garner and police as a tragedy but said Orta s arrest only underscores the dangers that brought police officers to respond to a chronic crime condition in Staten Island s Tompkinsville community.
The Rev. Al Sharpton, who called Orta to the lectern at Garner s funeral and said the city should thank God he was there to record video when the police and EMS failed us, called the arrest irrelevant.
No one is questioning the validity of the tape, and the medical examiner has validated it, Sharpton said Sunday.
Police said plainclothes officers from a Staten Island narcotics unit saw Orta stuff a silver-colored, .25-caliber handgun into a 17-year-old female companion s waistband after they emerged from a brief stop at the Hotel Richmond. Police called the location, on Central Avenue, a known drug prone location.
The unloaded semi-automatic weapon recovered was reported stolen in Michigan in 2007, police said. Officers charged the 17-year-old with criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of .
Police said Orta was in a hospital Sunday for treatment of a medical condition. No details were available. It was not immediately clear if Orta or the 17-year-old had lawyers.
An attorney representing Orta in the robbery case did not return a telephone message.
Sharpton and Garner s widow, Esaw Garner, have called for Staten Island prosecutors to charge the officers involved in his death or turn the case over to federal authorities.
The officer who placed Garner in the chokehold was stripped [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] of his gun and badge pending the investigation. Another officer was placed on desk duty.
Two paramedics and two emergency medical technicians were suspended without pay.
Orta echoed the call for arrest in Garner s death after hearing the medical examiner s ruling Friday.
I knew that was the cause because I saw it, he said. Now somebody should get charged.

The Shakespeare's Globe production was playing Monday evening inside the U.N.'s New York headquarters.
Just 12 actors were preforming in the stripped-down production that was launched this spring to honor The Bard by traveling to every country on Earth.
"Hamlet," which explores themes of danger, political intrigue and moral corruption, now finds itself in the place established to help resolve international conflicts.
The journey began in London on April 23. the Bard's 450th birthday, and has already made stops from Amsterdam to Prague, Cyprus to the Ukraine.
It concludes at its home theater on April 23, 2016, the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.

Labor leader Bill Shorten will launch a five-week campaign this week on the theme that Prime Minister Tony Abbott is a ''liar''.
The campaign marks a year since the 2013 federal election campaign in which Mr Abbott toppled Kevin [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Eden[/url] Rudd after having successfully weakened Julia Gillard, largely over her ''lie'' on the carbon tax. Mr Shorten will announce a new lie he will attribute to Mr Abbott every day until September 7.

It will kick off with Mr Abbott's remark, made on August 5 last year, that the Coalition was on a ''unity ticket'' with Labor on the Gonski schools funding package. The government has since flagged an [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] end to Gonski and wound back education funding to the states in the budget.
Mr Shorten will also focus on promises not to increase the tax burden - another promise dispensed with in the budget - and Mr Abbott's declaration that there would be ''no cuts to health''.
Labor will even claim that Mr Abbott lied in promising a ''no surprises, no excuses government''. On election day, Mr Abbott said: ''Should the Coalition win the election, I think the most inspiring thing I could do for people is actually keep our commitments.''
Mr Shorten said: ''No political leader [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] has broken promises so shamelessly as Tony Abbott. On schools, on hospitals, on pensions and on taxes, Tony Abbott promised one thing before the election and did the complete opposite after the election.
''Labor won't let the Prime Minister get away with his broken promises. His lies are hurting too many Australians.''

WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS4) A man is dead after being shot by a security guard at a Westminster apartment complex.
According to Wayne Read with Westminster police, the shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Sunset Ridge Apartments located at 8300 North Sheridan Boulevard at approximately 1:25 a.m.
The man s family has identified the victim as 24-year-old David Ludewig.
(credit: CBS)
鈥淲itnesses reported the security guard was retreating and attempted to get behind cover after recognizing the individual had a weapon,鈥?Read said in a statement. 鈥淭he individual allegedly had a handgun, raised it, and pointed it at the security guard. The security guard fired his weapon, striking this individual.鈥?
Ludewig鈥檚 family said he the gun he possessed was an airsoft gun, a replica of a handgun that shoots pellets or BBs.
Family members told CBS4 Ludewig was out celebrating news that his wife was pregnant with his first child.
He was taken way too soon, in a manner unfitting of the man that he was, said Ludewig鈥檚 brother-in-law Jacob Thompson. 鈥淭hey shot and killed him in front of everybody. They brought me and four children out of the house in our underwear, sat us on the front porch, and actually made us watch him die.
My cousin made a very, very a very bad mistake and got an air soft gun and pushed back, in order to make him (the security guard) leave us alone, Ludewig鈥檚 cousin Johnny Secrest said.
David Ludewig (credit: Ludewig Family)
Secrest says it was the security guard who confronted the men after seeing Ludewig urinate near a dumpster on the property.
He didn t need to shoot a young man who just went and celebrated with his family and friends that he has a baby coming, neighbor Letitia Gaillard said.
Police released a statement saying they are not naming the security guard at this point, or which company employs him. It鈥檚 not clear if the guard will face charges. The death is being investigated as a homicide, but police are trying to figure out if it was justified.
鈥淚f a guy pulls out an airsoft gun, I really got to believe the security guard believed that to be a real weapon, although that doesn t excuse the actions of the security guard,鈥?said neighbor Greg Nidy, who came out of his apartment to find Ludewig on the pavement with gunshot wounds.
鈥淭here seems to be some discrepancies between what the people around here think happened, and what the police say happened,鈥?neighbor Vilma Dallas said.
Secrest told CBS4 apartment complex managers told Ludewig s family they would be evicted in three days. Ludewig鈥檚 family said they ll be holding a celebration of his life and benefit for his unborn child at Herman s Hideaway in Denver on Sept. 25 from 7 p.m. to midnight.

Thai medical authorities are threatening to take legal action against a 21-year old Thai woman at the centre of global debate over the alleged abandoning of a Down syndrome baby by an Australian couple.
The Thai Ministry of Public Health says it is co-ordinating with other agencies in a crackdown against medical facilities and agencies linked to the commercial surrogacy the ministry calls illegal .
Thai reports said the ministry is also considering charges against the surrogate mother, Pattaramon Janbua, a food stall seller from the southern province of Sri Racha.
The ministry says the fact that Ms Pattaramon received payment of $15,000 as the surrogate mother was in contravention of Thailand's human trafficking laws.

 David and Wendy Farnell, from Bunbury in Western Australia, had denied the charge of abandoning the boy child, returning to Australia with his healthy twin sister.
The couple have charged that Ms Pattaramon misled the world over the events that led to them leaving the baby [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/joaillerie-louis-vuitton-12]Joaillerie Louis Vuitton[/url] behind in Thailand.
[url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] But on Tuesday the Thai woman denied these charges.
I have never lied or hidden anything. The truth is the truth; it's up to society to make their own judgment, Ms Pattaramon told Agence France Press (AFP).
Seven-month-old Gammy is receiving treatment at a Bangkok hospital for a congenital heart condition.
A spokesman for the hospital said the baby was now receiving specialist care and is in safe hands .
Initially the Australian couple told the Nine network they had no knowledge of the other child, but in a statement released Tuesday said they were told of the baby's existence but that it had a congenital heart condition and was not expected to live.
The case has spurred widespread debate, putting Thailand under the spotlight because of its weak legal framework overseeing surrogacy and in vitro-fertilisation (IVF) laws.
Thai law firm Chaniwat and Leeds, which says it will cover surrogacy and IVF cases on its website, warns of possible complicated legal issues .
While surrogacy in Thailand is currently an option and a rapidly-growing area of medical innovation, there are a number of legal considerations prospective parents should consider, the firm said.
The lawyers said Thailand currently has no laws or published case decisions directly relating to the practice of surrogacy, and in essence surrogacy is neither legal nor illegal in Thailand .
Agencies and health clinics openly engage in locating surrogate mothers and egg donors.
Thailand's Medical Council has taken a cautious approach to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Artsy[/url] the practices of IVF implantation, egg donation, and surrogacy; these practices are still in a legal and medical 'grey area', the firm said.
Investigations are now under way by Thailand's Bureau of Sanatorium and Art in Healing under the Department of Health Service Support (HSS) into the surrogacy service clinics.
There are reported to be an estimated 20 surrogacy agencies, most said to be foreign owned drawing in an estimated 4.0 billion baht ($A133 million) annually.

Plus que jamais, les Sixers sont montr茅s du doigt par cette politique si visible de tanking qui g芒che l'茅quit茅 voulue depuis toujours par la NBA.
Si beaucoup en doutaient, la lutte contre le tanking est plus que jamais dans le programme d Adam Silver, mais cela ressemble aussi 脿 la politique de l autruche.
 
Si tous les observateurs ont vu que les 76ers faisaient tout pour r茅cup茅rer le premier choix de la fameuse draft 2014 en proposant une 茅quipe de D-League sans identit茅, Adam Silver (ce fut la m锚me chose avec David Stern) a affirm茅 que . Pourtant, le pr茅sident des Sixers Rod Thorn himself a dit que , et l ancien General Manager des Suns et des Raptors . Il a 茅t茅 laur茅at 脿 deux reprises du titre de meilleur directeur.
 
Depuis quelques semaines, Adam Silver et sa direction sont en train de r茅fl茅chir 脿 une nouvelle mani猫re d aborder la draft, avec plus d 茅quit茅 entre les plus mauvais de la saison. 脿 ceux qui creusent dans les classements et ceux qui tentent d arracher une des derni猫res places qualificatives pour les playoffs.
 
Les Sixers de leurs c么t茅s pour au moins un an, mais nous pouvons lire sur Philly.com, que le cas des 76ers est tr猫s compliqu茅 et que la franchise est devenu le boulet de la NBA, notamment selon un des dirigeants de la ligue.
 
Les Sixers auraient un effet tr猫s n茅gatif sur l int茅grit茅 de la NBA. De plus, la direction de la ligue n aurait pas aim茅 la vision des gens sur la mani猫re quasiment d茅sinvolte des 76ers dans leur processus de tanking. Enfin, de nombreuses franchises ont montr茅 une animosit茅 grandissante en ce qui concerne Philly et son GM Sam Hinkie sur cette pratique visible aux yeux de tous, mais qui n est pas du tanking selon les ex茅cutants des 76ers. Les autres 茅quipes ont d茅nonc茅 ce processus de reconstruction de non-conventionnelle et auraient pouss茅 la direction et Silver 脿 faire le n茅cessaire pour proposer une nouvelle draft pour cet automne.
 
Pour le moment, seuls les Sixers s opposent 脿 la r茅forme actuelle de la draft alors que les Bucks, les C s ou encore le Magic se sont dit favorables 脿 ce changement. Les Sixers n ont pas fini d 茅nerver et de g芒cher les ann茅es des joueurs qui sont malheureusement sous contrat avec la franchise de Philadelphie, mais ils peuvent toujours se consoler en remportant les titres de rookie de l ann茅e, car il faut aussi souligner que les meilleurs d茅butants sont facilement r茅compensables quand ils 茅voluent dans une 茅quipe qui n est pas taill茅e pour les playoffs.

While smart locks are still a niche market, the use of smartphones for payments is growing exponentially. Since December last year, Commonwealth Bank has seen 1.4 million transactions [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-corners-towel-scarf-38]Louis Vuitton Corners Towel Scarf[/url] by customers using smartphones.鈥淲hile there may always be a need for different payment methods, such as cash for emergencies and cards for travel, it鈥檚 clear the mobile wallet is set to become a part of many Australians鈥?everyday lives,鈥?said Angus Sullivan, executive general manager of cards and payments at Commonwealth Bank.Commonwealth Bank customers with an iPhone or Android smartphone can attach a PayTag smart sticker to the back of their device and use it for transactions of up to $100 at stores with PayPass terminals.Those with a Samsung Galaxy S4 don鈥檛 need the sticker, as the necessary technology is built into the phone. The same function will soon be available on the Galaxy S5, and according to Sullivan, the bank is planning more links with Android devices. Commonwealth Bank also offers a unique Cardless Cash service that lets customers withdraw up to $200 a day from more than 3000 CommBank ATMs nationwide using the CommBank app.Another Aussie bank making strides in the mobile payment space is Westpac.  Last month, it launched a service similar to the Commonwealth Bank鈥檚 that enables customers to use the NFC technology built into the Samsung Galaxy S4, S5 [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/ceinture-louis-vuitton-17]Ceinture Louis Vuitton[/url] or Note 3 to tap and pay securely at contactless terminals.PayPal also offers options for paying through your smartphone. At more than 5000 locations in Australia, including Guzman Y Gomez, Glue Store and Sonoma Bakery, you can check in to the store using the PayPal app and pay using the credit or debit card that鈥檚 linked to your PayPal account. You can also avoid queues at participating cafes by ordering food and refreshments before you get there.As convenient as all of this technology is, it does raise the stakes if your smartphone gets lost or stolen. Michael McKinnon, security adviser at online security company AVG, said that while the risks of losing money through fraud  are borne mostly by the banks with money-back guarantees, the real risk is increased theft of devices.鈥淚f you pull your mobile phone out of your pocket and wave it past the reader, then it鈥檚 pretty clear to a person watching that this is how you鈥檙e making the payment.

Smartphones don鈥檛 display your credit card details, either, preventing thieves from using your credit card online the way they can with a stolen plastic card. Both the Commonwealth and Westpac apps also let you secure the contactless payments feature behind a PIN number.To stay safe while using a smartphone as a replacement for your wallet or keys, the traditional smartphone security measures apply. 鈥淏e discrete about when you鈥檙e making payments, and keep your device with you at all times,鈥?said McKinnon.鈥淯se a PIN number or passcode on your device and mobile payment app, and make sure you鈥檙e using all of the technology available to track your smartphone if it is lost or stolen. And, if you鈥檙e using an Android device, ensure you鈥檙e running some security software to block malicious apps.鈥?

Courts going soft on pot-smokers and sellersChanges in attitudes have made jail sentences less [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton Soldes[/url] likely in marijuana cases.August 02, 2014|By Riley Yates, Of The Morning CallAlan H. Oren was at home in Upper Mount Bethel Township when state police showed up a couple years ago and did something that, in his words, "wasn't too cool."Acting on what Oren believes was a tip from a neighbor, troopers searched a shed near his mobile home, finding 9 ounces of marijuana, a digital scale, sandwich bags and two pipes, according to court records."It was kind of rough on me, man," Oren, who is 55 and now lives in Pen Argyl, said in a recent interview. "They were looking at putting me in prison for a year. I mean, for what? For supposedly selling a bag of weed."Oren's June 2012 arrest underscores how Pennsylvania has proven resistant to the pro-pot politics that have triumphed in such places as Colorado and Washington state, which have legalized marijuana. But the ultimate result of his case speaks to another reality: that even as the state's war on marijuana continues, not many defendants even among those accused of dealing pot are ever sent to prison for it.Though Oren was charged with a felony drug offense, he ended up plea bargaining down to a misdemeanor marijuana-possession charge. His ultimate punishment? Eight months of probation.Outcomes like Oren's are common, a Morning Call review of marijuana prosecutions shows.In 2013 and 2014, seven in 10 cases of possession with intent to deliver marijuana in Northampton County concluded without the defendants spending any time in prison, court records reveal. Not one of the 54 cases produced a state prison sentence, with three months the typical jail term in the 16 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/23-sac-porte-epaule]Sac port锟斤拷 锟斤拷paule[/url] instances in which prison was handed down.In Lehigh County, a sample of 20 marijuana delivery cases from around the same time period demonstrated similar results. Seventy percent of them also saw no prison time, and no one was sent to state prison."We're not jumping up and down saying this guy should go to jail," said Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli, who nonetheless opposes recreational marijuana.Or as veteran Allentown defense attorney Gavin Holihan put it: "A defendant would have to work hard to go to jail for marijuana."That makes former football star Austin Scott's case atypical.Scott, a former Parkland High School and Penn State running back, is serving six to 23 months in Lehigh County Jail after pleading guilty to selling small amounts of marijuana to undercover officers last year on four occasions. The sentence, handed down in May by Judge Robert Steinberg, shocked Scott's attorney, who had hoped for probation and has since asked the judge to reconsider.In court, the now 29-year-old Scott told Steinberg that when he sold the pot, he felt it was "a little thing" that allowed him to make a few dollars and feed his own use of the drug."This is not a little thing," Steinberg shot back. "This is a felony."That's true, but polling shows that the public has become increasingly uncomfortable with that.In October, Gallup reported that for the first time in its surveys, a clear majority of Americans supported legalizing marijuana, with 58 percent in favor compared with 39 percent against. The first time the question was asked, in 1969, only 12 percent supported legalization.A poll in Pennsylvania in February showed that 48 percent of state voters backed the legal use of marijuana for adults, versus 42 percent who opposed it. Just 15 percent believed Pennsylvania's pot laws should be kept the same or made harsher than they are today, the Mercyhurst Center for Applied Politics in Erie found.That's a fact of life that Northampton County drug prosecutor Tatum Wilson had been thinking about as she prepared for a trial this week in which she was going to ask a jury to convict a Hanover Township man of selling marijuana. One of her concerns: that even if jurors found she proved her case, they'd acquit the defendant anyway because only weed was involved.Wilson won't have to worry. On Friday, 21-year-old Fawad Anwari pleaded guilty to marijuana delivery, receiving one to 23 months in county prison from Judge F.P. Kimberly McFadden.Though Wilson otherwise had been prepared to go to trial to prove Anwari sold pot, she knows the risks of that firsthand.As a former public defender in Philadelphia, Wilson said, she tried a marijuana delivery case in which the jury came back with a not-guilty verdict. Talking to jurors afterward, they were "incensed" that authorities had pursued the charges, Wilson said."One actually said to the prosecutor, 'We wasted our time for this?'" Wilson remembered.But the law is the law, and Wilson said that as an assistant district attorney, she can't look the other way when she believes someone has broken it."Just because it is marijuana and people don't think it is serious, it is still against the law," she said.1 | | | Featured ArticlesMore:Related LinksRelated ArticlesSeptember 24, 2000October 30, 2013January 3, 2014April 9, 1990September 18, 1985Find More Stories [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/24-sac-porte-main]Sac port锟斤拷 main[/url] About|||Please note the green-lined linked article text has been applied commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

RACINE (WITI) He had come to Racine to attend a funeral, and now, his family is preparing for his own. It was a somber evening on Sunday, August 3rd, as loved ones remembered Semar McClain gunned down in Racine last Tuesday evening, July 29th.
The mother of 19-year-old McClain is asking for your prayers. She s also looking for answers as to how her son died.
Semar McClain
Loved ones on Sunday worked to transform the back alley where McClain was found dead from a place [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] of pain to a place of peace. The back alley near Blake Street and Albert Street was adorned with candles and balloons as loved ones held a vigil in McClain s honor.
Police say McClain was shot twice in the head.
This is my son. I want to know, Marinda Cunningham said.
McClain is Cunningham s youngest son. She says she doesn t know who shot her son, or why.
It s rough because it [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] s something we ve never dealt with, Cunningham said.
Cunningham says McClain was a free spirit, but also ambitious. She says he was good with his hands, and was deciding on a career possibly in electronics.
Actually getting ready to go to college. He was working two jobs, Cunningham said.
Cunningham raised her kids in Racine, but they moved to St. Paul, Minnesota three years ago.
McClain had come back to Racine for a friend s funeral, who died following an asthma attack.
He was a leader. I noticed that about him. That was one of things that drew me to him, Elder Quentin Bolton said. Bolton was McClain s mentor when he lived in Racine.
He called me and told me he was back, so I was excited, Bolton said.
McClain called Bolton less than a week ago, to plan a reunion that wouldn t come to be.
This young man, his dreams, his gifts, and ultimately his purpose has been stolen away from him, Bolton said.
The vigil [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] in McClain s honor was led by the Racine Interfaith Coalition.
Police say this remains an active investigation.

KENTWOOD, Mich. A 9-year-old boy who was repeatedly stabbed by a 12-year-old boy at a playground in western Michigan has died, police said Tuesday.Michael Conner Verkerke ran home and collapsed on the porch around 6 p.m. Monday after [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] he was stabbed at a mobile home park in Kentwood, near Grand Rapids, according to police. He died after being rushed to a hospital.Witnesses told investigators that four children were playing when one of them pulled a knife and stabbed the boy. The motive in the attack was still being investigated, said Kentwood Police Chief Thomas Killen.Police said the older boy left the playground after the stabbing and called police from a nearby home to turn himself in.Glen Stacey, who lives nearby, told The Grand Rapids Press that the older boy approached him after the attack and asked to use his phone. He said the boy called 911 to report the attack.Stacey said he also called police and described the [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] boy as "very calm.""The only time he raised his voice was when the police came," Stacy said.When police arrived, Stacy said, they first went to aid the stabbing victim. When officers started heading toward the playground area, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton[/url] he said the boy on Stacy's lawn wanted police to pick him up and yelled "Hello. I'm right here. You're going the wrong way."Police said the 12-year-old boy was evaluated at a hospital before being taken to the Kent County Juvenile Detention Center pending charges. Police didn't immediately release additional details about the child.An autopsy is planned by the Kent County Medical Examiner's Office. The Kent County prosecutor's office will determine whether the boy will be charged as a juvenile or an adult, Hillen said.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (CBS4) - A drive-in theater that s in jeopardy of closing not because of sagging business but, rather, its overwhelming popularity is seeking a [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] reprieve from the city.
The 88 Drive-In Theater, the last drive-in in the metro area and one of seven in Colorado, sees robust crowds and stretches of cars waiting to catch a movie.
That affection concerns police, who have cited numerous issues related to the theater, including traffic problems. Cell phone video titled Dangerous traffic conditions that aired at the meeting showed cars stretching from the theater, at 88th Avenue and Rosemary Street, back to Interstate 76 to the west.
An aerial view of 88 Drive-In Theater (credit: CBS)
The city said it doesn t want to shutter the theater, but the city s attorney said that could happen.
Susan Kochevar, the drive-in s owner, says the city council isn t hearing her concerns. By Monday night, she said she gathered 10,000 signatures that ask the city and police to stop pestering and penalizing the theater. The says police are asking her to modify the drive-in property to make [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] up for the city s road maintenance inadequacies.
As of Monday morning, the petition received more than 15,000 signatures.
I have not been listened to at all, Kochevar told the council Monday night. I have been talked at.
Susan Kochevar (credit: CBS)
But a councilwoman said the traffic caused by the theater is a safety hazard.
I started wondering if we had to evacuate this drive-in, I don t believe we could have got people out in any less than 30, 45 minutes, Councilwoman Jadie Carson said.
The city said it called Monday s meeting because Kochevar had repeatedly ducked meetings to discuss problems.
My business license has been threatened, and I ve been threatened with citations for something I cannot control and have no legal authority to do, she countered, arguing it s the city [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] s responsibility to improve roads in the area.

George R.R. Martin is still tinkering away at The Winds of Winter, the sixth installment of his epic novel series A Song of Ice and Fire and he has no sympathy for impatient, crazed fans. In a new interview with (via ), the author defends himself and his leisurely writing pace, even debunking the theory that he's already completed the books and is releasing them strategically to maximize his profits.

George R.R. Martin: The Complete Rolling Stone Interview
"There are even some strange conspiracy theorists out there who are convinced that I finished the whole thing years ago but I m just hiding the books in my cellar and releasing them in order to maximize something or other," he says. "There s a lot of craziness that goes on, but it s [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sacs-louis-vuitton-2013-37]Sacs Louis Vuitton 2013[/url] pressure, and the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-millimetre-artsy-41]Louis Vuitton Millimetre Artsy[/url] obligation is to the work itself. I m telling a story, however many books you divide it into, three books, four books, seven books, which is what I m presently going for. It s one story, as much as Tolkien s Lord of the Rings is one story. It has a beginning; it has a lot of middle; and eventually, it will have an end."
Martin acknowledges the immense pressure of wrapping up his beloved, -fueling franchise, but he says he's ultimately able to block out the real-life distractions and focus on the fantasy at hand: "Yes, to some extent [the pressure] does [affect me], but when the writing is going well, it doesn t matter. When I m there and working, I just kind of fall through my computer screen and I forget the world. I forget deadlines; I forget the TV show and the emails and all of that stuff. It s just me and the characters and the world that I m describing, and I m writing a page at a time, and a scene at a time, and a word at a time."
This isn't the first time the 65-year-old has been forced to defend his flexible timetable. In early July, a reporter for Swiss newspaper [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-keepall-49]Sac Louis Vuitton Keepall[/url] raised the concern that his age and health could interfere with finishing the series. "I find that question pretty offensive," Martin said in response, raising a middle finger.
Back in March, Martin shared an from The Winds of Winter, and he offered semi-spoilers and details in a June interview with . Meanwhile, the author is in the series, which was previously envisioned to include seven titles.

Nearly 30 delegates to the World AIDS conference, which concluded last month in Melbourne, have sought asylum in Australia, The Guardian Monday.
The delegates, mostly from African nations like Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Nigeria and Ethiopia sought assistance from refugee agencies in Australia [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] in filing applications for protection visas, which are issued to people who are recognized as refugees fleeing persecution.
鈥淥nce they鈥檝e lodged a claim for a protection visa then it will depend on the conditions of the visa whether they have any sort of support or whether they鈥檝e got work rights,鈥?Pamela Curr, campaign coordinator for Asylum Seeker Resource Centre -- an Australian refugee support and advocacy organization -- told The Guardian.
鈥淥ur case workers are assisting them with the housing agencies to make sure they have somewhere safe to sleep,鈥?Curr said.
She added that the African delegates -- who were scientists working in the field of AIDS research, felt that their work made returning to their home countries a 鈥渓ife threatening proposition.鈥?
About 70 percent of the world's AIDS-affected population resides [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] in Sub-Saharan Africa, notorious for the high level of stigma attached to the disease. As a result, even health workers, AIDS researchers and relatives of patients face ostracism and persecution.
"It seems that some of them have been considering whether they think they can survive in their countries of origin, or whether they should try to survive by getting refugee protection in Australia," Curr said.
Heather Hoist, CEO of HomeGround, an聽emergency accommodation provider, told The Guardian that her organization was helping 19 of the delegates find a place to stay while they waited for their current visas to run out before claiming asylum.
Some of the delegates have also left families behind in their home countries and will be eligible for family reunion visas. However, 鈥渨e have a very tough government at the moment and [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK[/url] there are very few family reunion visas being granted,鈥?Hoist said.
The Tony Abbott-led government in Australia has taken a on the influx of refugees into the country. Many human rights activists and organizations have criticized Australia鈥檚 immigration policy and the meted out to asylum seekers.
鈥淎 refugee visa is one of the hardest visas to get in this country, you don't just get it easily. These people's claims will be assessed in line with the refugee convention and if they have a claim we hope that the government would extend them protection," Curr said.

Donations can be dropped off through Aug. 15 at Heritage Bank locations in Thurston County, and during the organization s Radio Day from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Aug. 15 at the corner of State and Washington in Olympia. Paper, three-ring binders, rulers, crayons and child size scissors are among the most needed items, according to the organization s web site. New or gently used (and washed) winter coats are also needed, according to [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] Judy Kimeldorf, co-chair of the project. It s really hard to come up with 3,500 coats, she said.

I hear the things I need to work on. I'm not running from it. I'm accepting the challenge. I know I'm not that perfect player, but I'm trying my best. I've gained a whole new level of respect for KD.
This is the relationship we've often said DeMarcus needed. 聽A player who he respects and admires, and will eagerly take advice from. 聽And that advice is, hopefully, lining up with the feedback Cousins is receiving from Mike聽Krzyzewski and Jerry Colangelo.
Well, I need to be a better leader, which I'm not. I know [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] I need to work on my defense. I'm not out there trying to let a guy score on me, but I have to get it (schemes) down pat. I need to be as smart on defense as I am on offense, learn to understand defense as well as offense.
Cousins is openly telling us what he needs to improve. 聽We first saw this sort of honest self-assessment last summer, right before Cousins had a breakout season for the Kings. 聽Seeing this lack of complacency is a treat. 聽Cousins needs to be a leader if the Kings are ever going to emerge from the Western Conference cellar. 聽And Cousins [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] needs to be a defensive anchor in Michael Malone's system. 聽He doesn't need to be a rim protector, but he needs to know his role, be in his spots, make his rotations. 聽Cousins expands on this concept.
A lot of big men can't defend. But they block shots, and that's not really defense. Defense is about five guys moving as one ... the moving-on-a-string theory. If one guy goes to the wrong place, it breaks down. But at the end of the day, as the center, I'm the defensive anchor. And I'm working hard on it.
But to me, the biggest part of the interview came after Cousins said he would be crushed if he didn't make the team. 聽He added:
I would be crushed, but I'm not a quitter. I would come back and try again.
Cousins would have every right to be pissed off with the Team USA experience. 聽 found himself on Colangelo's bad side, and is no longer even considered a possibility for Team USA, despite being one of the top point guards in the league each year. 聽Cousins, pigeonholed as a player with a bad temper and bad attitude, would be completely justified in walking away from the Team USA experience if he gets passed over for Plumlee. 聽And yet he's willing to continue working to prove himself.
As a Kings fan, I want Cousins to make Team USA and have an impact at the FIBA World Cup. 聽But as a Kings fan, I'm encouraged to see how DeMarcus is handling adversity and continuing to [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] strive for personal improvement.

Gold prices will reach $1,400 an ounce, the highest price since September, by the end of the year, according to .
Higher demand from Asia and an anticipation of accelerating inflation are lifting the price, the precious metal dealer鈥檚 chief market analyst Peter Grant . Gold bullion prices will rise even if the Federal Reserve increases interest rates, what banks charge one another for short-term loans, which affects the interest rates banks charge customers for loans, to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] combat future inflation. That鈥檚 because higher borrowing costs will likely come with rising consumer prices, he said.
鈥淚f you [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] look back over time, there are plenty of instances where rates have risen and gold has risen as well,鈥?Grant said.
When the Fed raised interest rates from June 2004 to June 2006, gold futures rose 57 percent.
Typically, gold investors view rising interest rates as bad news for the metal's price and seek out higher-yielding investments.聽
Money Morning's resource specialist Peter Krauth that "with low interest rates that are likely to stay low for some time, the opportunity cost of owning gold is next to zero, making it an attractive asset."
Last month, gold prices fell by 3 percent as the prospects of rising borrowing costs dampened [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] the appeal of gold as an asset. On July 30, the central bank reduced its monthly bond-buying program to $25 billion, the sixth consecutive $10 billion cut.
In June, gold shipments to India, the world鈥檚 second-largest gold user, spiked by 65 percent after the Fed allowed more banks and traders to buy gold overseas.

During the last minute of a 2011 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] Alamo Bowl game that had found Washington and Baylor combining for 123 points and almost 1,400 yards, the Huskies freshman defensive tackle saw a squib-kicked football there for the taking and thought: Now it s my turn to join in the fun. I stole the ball from (teammate) Thomas Tutogi, Shelton recalled Sunday, and ran about 10 yards before I was on top of a pile. So I got up and started running again. Pretty soon there were like seven guys on top of me, stripping the ball out. I lost the ball. Shelton also lost any chance to get within five miles of carrying ball again as long as Steve Sarkisian was UW s coach. Oh, man, I d talk to Coach Sark about it, Shelton said with a laugh. But, obviously, that bowl game kickoff return didn t help out. But you never know. Coach Petersen might throw some trickery in there. That would be new Washington coach Chris Petersen, who met with the media Sunday in anticipation of the first practice of fall camp Monday morning. At Boise State, Petersen gained a reputation for his outside-the-box strategy, occasionally using defensive players on offense and offensive players on defense.During spring practice, Huskies wide receiver John Ross took some repetitions with the secondary, and Petersen remains as intrigued by linebacker Shaq Thompson s potential at running back as anybody else who has seen videos of his dashes in high school. That will be something we d always pay attention to, depending on depth, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] ability and those types of things, Petersen said. I like doing that with tight ends and defensive ends, moving them into the backfield on short-yardage goal-line packages. I think it s really fun for those guys. They really lock in. We ve had success doing that, so if somebody can help us, we ll do that. Thompson is amenable to a dual role, but the prospect of carrying the ball five or six times a game doesn t thrill him as much as you might assume. It s not really a big deal, he said. I came here to play linebacker, so that s what I m doing. Until coach calls my name and wants me to play offense, I m gonna be a defensive player. I m not here to play full-time running back. They recruited guys for that that s their job. Likely impeding Thompson s enthusiasm is the fact major college football requires players to be familiar with the nuances of any position. Running to the left when the play is designed to go to the right can be tolerated in a two-hand touch pickup game on a sandlot, but in the Pac-12, it s the stuff of turnovers that cause 70,000 fans to groan. If Thompson is asked to contribute at running back, he ll need to memorize an entire playbook instead of half of one. He s already begun that task with the help of his roommate, Huskies quarterback candidate Troy Williams. We go over plays every now and then, Thompson said. He ll give a little test where I figure out which way to go. Junior wide receiver Jaydon Mickens is another candidate for double duty. Informed by a coach that we need some DB s out there, during spring practice, Mickens replied: You ve got 18 of them, but sure. The ebullient Mickens offered the names of two teammates capable of making a part-time position transition.Defensive back Brandon Beaver, he said, could play some receiver. He s a long-receiver guy and has speed. Also, Budda Baker, continued Mickens, referring to the freshman defensive back from Bellevue High and five-star prize of Petersen s first recruiting class at Washington. I ve seen his ball skills, said Mickens. He s got great hands. He can play running back, slot receiver or even on the outside. Petersen has more pressing priorities than discovering the latent pass-catching talents of defensive backs. For starters, he needs to decide on the starters -- beginning with a quarterback -- who will front a two-deep roster that s still a work in progress.But giving defensive ends a chance to score a touchdown on third-and-goal, and receivers a chance to intercept a pass instead of catching one, could provide both fireworks and team-bonding levity.As for Shelton, a senior All-America candidate, he s waiting for redemption after the kickoff return coughed up as a freshman. A failure, the Auburn High School graduate said of his misguided attempt to run with the ball. But it was fun. I wouldn t take it back.

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nancy Writebol, the American missionary who contracted Ebola while serving in Liberia, is expected to return to the U.S. for further treatment on Tuesday, according to SIM (), the Christian mission organization with which she serves. She remains in serious, but stable, condition.
Photo -
Writebol was serving on a joint team with Dr. Kent Brantly of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization, when they both contracted the virus.
The same medical evacuation plane that brought Brantly back to the U.S. for treatment on [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] Aug. 2 is on its way to Liberia to pick up Writebol. The plane, which is equipped with a unique containment unit, will fly into Dobbins Air Force Base near Atlanta. Writebol will then be transported to Emory University Hospital and placed in a special isolation unit set up in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP).
"We are so grateful and encouraged to hear that Nancy's condition remains stable and that she will be with us soon," said Bruce Johnson, president of SIM USA. "Her husband, David, told me Sunday her appetite has improved and she requested one of her favorite dishes Liberian potato soup and coffee."
David Writebol will travel back to the U.S. separately in a few days. He will be reunited with his wife, where they can visit through a window in the isolation unit.
SIM missionaries evacuated from Liberia returned to the U.S. on Sunday. The group of two adults and six children will be housed temporarily at SIM's campus in Charlotte.
SIM is following strict personal and public health safety protocols established by the CDCP and the World Health Organization regarding its personnel. All departing SIM personnel were cleared in Liberia by infectious disease medical experts to fly on commercial flights. All received medical checkups upon their return. No returning SIM staff members are ill or showing symptoms of infection. SIM medical staff, in cooperation with area healthcare professionals, will continue to monitor their health and support their well-being.
"Quite frankly, those returning to the U.S. need a temporary sanctuary where they can rest, relax and be loved [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] on by other members of the SIM family," said Johnson. "Media interest has been high, and we ask that their privacy be protected."
Although nonessential personnel have left the country, SIM is sending another American SIM missionary doctor to help with the treatment of Ebola patients at a separate Ebola Treatment Center on its 130-acre SIM/ELWA campus in Monrovia, Liberia.
"Our ELWA Hospital is led by capable Liberian doctors, administrators and staff," said Johnson. SIM currently has two expatriate doctors on site that have been caring for Writebol, Brantly and [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] others, alongside their Liberian colleagues. Other SIM ministries, including its radio station and HIV-AIDS public health education group, continue to operate with Liberian staff.
The latest updates on Writebol's condition and SIM's role in the Ebola epidemic in Liberia are available at .
SIM is an international Christian mission with a staff of nearly 3,000 workers serving in more than 65 countries. In addition to medicine, SIM serves on every continent in areas of education, community development, public health and Christian witness. While SIM stood for Sudan Interior Mission when it was founded 120 years ago, it is now a global mission known as SIM. Two of SIM's three founders died of disease within the first year of the organization's founding. Yet SIM continued on to become one of the largest Christian medical missions in the world.

NEAH [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] BAY, Wash. - A Coast Guard crew rescued a man in heavy fog Sunday after his vessel burst into flames in the waters off Neah Bay.Rescuers responded to the scene, about three miles north of Neah Bay, after Coast Guard watch standers in Seattle received a mayday call on VHF-FM channel 16 from the operator of the 25-foot pleasure craft Dawn Trader around 11 a.m. The man reported that the vessel was on fire and he was donning a survival suit and abandoning ship into his life raft.A Coast Guard helicopter crew from Port Angeles and rescue boat from Neah Bay were launched in response. Good Samaritans aboard a nearby vessel also offered to assist in the search.Both [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] Coast Guard crews arrived in the vicinity of the original distress call around 11:50 a.m. and began searching for the man, but heavy fog reduced visibility in the area to 100 feet. The life raft鈥檚 onboard GPS was malfunctioning and the man's flares did not fire correctly, further complicating the search.The aircrew used the signal from the man鈥檚 handheld marine radio and the direction-finding capabilities of the Dolphin helicopter to locate the life raft. They found the man clinging to the partially submerged raft and hoisted him [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK[/url] into the chopper at noon.The man was then flown to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles in a reportedly severe hypothermic state.Meanwhile, the Dawn Trader became engulfed in flames, split in half and sank with an unknown amount of fuel was aboard. 鈥淭he fact that the survivor had a raft and handheld radio most likely saved his life,鈥?said Lt. Cmdr. Edward Geraghty, the aircraft commander aboard the helicopter. 鈥淭he extensive search area and difficult conditions we encountered would have made locating him nearly impossible had we not been able to hone in on his radio transmission with the helicopter鈥檚 direction finding system."

For Eagles, bigger is better across the boardIncreasing average size of players has been goal since Day 1.Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher, at 6-0, 200 pounds, is an example of (EMILY ROBSON, THE MORNING )August 04, 2014|By Nick Fierro, Of The Morning CallPHILADELPHIA 鈥?At an even 6 feet, Jeremy Maclin has gone from being the largest of the Philadelphia Eagles regular wide receivers to the smallest in a span of two seasons.His position group isn't the only one to experience huge growth since Chip Kelly was named head coach in January 2013, either.Among the multitude of changes Kelly has made to the roster and every other aspect of the football operation was to go for larger perimeter players on both sides of the line of scrimmage. His receivers and cornerbacks are bigger. Ditto for the outside linebackers and the entire defensive line.As Kelly said when he was first hired, "big people beat up little people," and he has gone about the process of re-shaping the team exactly the way he predicted.The team's first "unofficial" depth chart of 2014 was unveiled Monday, and it shows the details. Maclin (6-0) is listed as one of three first-team receivers. Riley Cooper (6-4) and Brad Smith (6-2) are the others. The fourth and continuously ascending receiver is rookie Jordan Matthews, who is 6-3 and plays bigger.At cornerback, Cary Williams (6-1) and Bradley Fletcher (6-0) return as starters, along with safeties Nate Allen (6-1, 210) and newcomer Malcolm Jenkins (6-0, 205).Though any switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defensive base, which is what Kelly implemented upon his arrival, requires larger players throughout the front seven, the [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] size change has been immense. The one-gap defensive tackles from the Andy Reid regime have been replaced by Bennie Logan, who added around 15 pounds in the offseason and rookie Beau Allen (6-2, 333).Two of those one-gap tackles, Fletcher Cox (6-4, 300) and Cedric Thornton (6-4, 310), have been flexed out to ends, replacing former smaller starters Trent Cole (6-3, 270) and Brandon Graham (6-2, 265), who now are outside linebackers, along with first-round draft pick Marcus Smith (6-3, 250), among others.In addition, the Eagles drafted giant-sized defensive end Taylor Hart (6-6, 285) and added free agents Alejandro Villanueva (6-9, 280) and Brandon Bair (6-6, 290) at the same spot.Kelly and his staff know that bigger doesn't necessarily mean better, but the goal was to grow the wingspans at most positions and take their chances.And they like those chances.A lot."It really goes in cycles," defensive coordinator Billy Davis said. [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] "But we here like size and length. That's our philosophy, and that's what we think helps us run the scheme we run. So that's why you're seeing us select bigger players."In that respect, Kelly, hired for his innovations, is just trying to keep up with a literal growing trend.So in addition to the behind-the-scene shortcomings leaked by anonymous sources to the media about the diminutive (and departed) DeSean Jackson (5-10, 175), the fact is that even if Jackson had been a model citizen in every way, he still would not have been a lock to remain an Eagle because of what Kelly is trying to build here.The fact that Cooper, whose racial outburst last year could have polarized the locker room, is still with the team and Jackson is not speaks volumes."This league is continuing to go that way," Kelly said. "When you think two of the best corners, Patrick Peterson, a guy who just signed an outstanding contract, who I think is one of the tops in the league, [and] Richard Sherman probably the two highest-paid guys, probably the two best guys, are both big, physical corners, and they're going to try to beat you up on the line of scrimmage."If you can't get off the line of scrimmage, you're done. I think that's what we're moving towards. I think the corners are getting bigger in this league and the wideouts are getting bigger. That's one of Riley's strengths, his ability to get off that stuff. No one is going to get off clean and just be running down the field with no one around him for four or five yards. When the ball is up, now you have to be able to go get it. Having a 6-4 guy that's 230 pounds, it helps."Kelly has not been totally rigid. In addition, to Jackson, he also kept Damaris Johhnson (5-8) on the team last year, and their prized free-agent addition for this season was tiny running back Darren Sproles (5-6). Alas, Johnson likely will be gone by the end of the summer, and the Eagles will continue to grow at most of their positions.Just the way Kelly envisioned it at the start.He can't wait for his oversized squad to start beating up on some little people in Chicago when they visit the Bears for their preseason opener on Friday night.610-778-2243Featured ArticlesMore:Related LinksRelated ArticlesDecember 12, 2012October 14, 2012July 31, 2014September 22, 2012December 14, 2012Find More Stories About|||Please note the green-lined linked article text has been applied [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton[/url] commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

DENVER (CBS4) - Colorado residents hankering to see the state in the days before automobiles and the Internet might find satisfaction in the Cumbres Toltec Scenic Railroad.
The railroad, once integral to silver mining in the late 1800s, now ferries passengers from the San Juan Mountains to the Conejos Valley in southern Colorado.
John Bush, the president of the Cumbres Toltec, spoke with CBS4 this weekend.
[url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] This is an opportunity to see the authentic West as it was 130 years ago and to experience it the same way. It s really an opportunity to step back in time and get off the grid, the railroad s president, John Bush, said.
The railroad s season began Memorial Day weekend and runs through Oct. 19.
If you enjoy sitting in traffic or standing in lines, then it s probably not for you. But if [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] you d like Colorado the way it was before it got all full of people, this is the opportunity, Bush said.
The Cumbres Toltec route is popular with visitors from Russia, Europe and Asia, he said.
After its construction in 1880, the railroad became part of the San Juan Extension of the Denver Rio Grande Railroad. Its tracks ran from Denver through the Rockies to Silverton in southwestern Colorado and to Santa Fe, N.M. The decline of silver mining in the 1890s diminished the railroad s role.
In 1969, the Denver Rio Grande Railroad filed for abandonment, which means it no longer provides service along a specific route. But Colorado and New Mexico preserved many of the route s scenic elements. The railroad was awarded a National Historic Landmark designation in 2013.
For full-day trips, prices range from $89 to $189 for adults, depending on the route, time of year and seat. Children 2-12 ride for free with a paying adult through Sept. 12. More fares and schedules can be .
It s really the best preserved example of antique railroading in the country, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] Bush said.

Rookie receiver Corey Washington scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 73-yard pass up the right sideline from backup quarterback Ryan Nassib with 13:18 remaining. Washington reached back to catch the underthrown pass, then stepped around flat-footed defender Kamaal McIlwain.
Williams performance was encouraging for the Giants after Wilson sustained his second neck injury in less than a year during training camp.
Getting additional playing time as the No. 2 back behind newly acquired starter Rashad Jennings, Williams provided a 1-2 punch to the Giants new-look running game that was slowed by injuries last season. And the two took the pressure off quarterback Eli Manning.
Though Manning lost a fumble while being sacked on the second series, Williams helped [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] bail out the offense on the third possession. He had five carries for 37 yards, which he capped with a strong run up the middle to put the Giants ahead 7-3.
Williams led the nation with 2,177 yards rushing last season, the fifth highest total in NCAA history.
He showed great burst on a 21-yard gain off a sweep to the left to set up his score.
Manning finished 6 of 7 for 43 yards.
We didn t get off to a great start, Manning said, referring to his fumble. The first game back, you re going to work out some of [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] the kinks. I thought there were some improvements. It was a good start.
For Buffalo, starting quarterback EJ Manuel had several lapses during two series. He completed just 2 of 7 attempts for 19 yards, and nearly had a pass intercepted by linebacker Jacquian Williams inside the New York 10. Manuel never looked off his intended target, rookie Sammy Watkins, and was fortunate to have Williams bat the ball down.
NOTES
BROWNS: Cleveland claimed injured offensive lineman Michael Bowie off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks.
Bowie was a seventh-round pick a year ago and made eight starts. But he needs shoulder surgery that will [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK[/url] sideline him for four to six months, and he was cut by the Seahawks on Saturday.
TITANS: Left guard Andy Levitre was removed from the non-football injury list and returned to the field 10 days after an appendectomy.
Levitre, who has started 80 straight games since being draft by Buffalo in 2009, says he s hopeful of playing in the preseason opener Saturday against the Green Bay Packers unless told no.

Les Suns sont toujours dans l'impasee avec Eric Bledsoe et la solution pourrait venir de Boston avec un 茅change entre les deux meneurs.
Eric Bledsoe et les Suns ne se sont toujours pas mis d accord.

En effet, mettre Rondo en association avec deux autres meneurs de qualit茅s serait nouveau pour RR9, et il est difficile de croire que le capitaine actuel de Boston pourrait s accommoder de partager son jeu avec des joueurs qui pourraient 锚tre ses back-ups.

Williamson had been in the care of Victoria's mental health system for 32 years when he was found dead on another patient's bathroom floor at the Austin Hospital's [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON[/url] psychiatric unit in Heidelberg. His doctors had never classified him as suicidal or having a tendency to self-harm.
He was found with severe head injuries and a plastic bag twisted tightly over his head. But little or no forensic evidence was gathered from the scene.
Advertisement
Fairfax Media in 2011 revealed the bizarre circumstances of Williamson's death and his family's displeasure with the initial police investigation and assumption he was responsible for his own death.
Their concerns were vindicated in a series of strong findings made by Coroner Spanos earlier today.
I find that the weight of evidence supports a finding that Freddy's injuries were not self-inflicted and that he died in circumstances of assault by a person whose identity I am unable to ascertain, Coroner Spanos concluded.
Coroner Spanos has referred the matter to the Director of Public Prosecutions because she had formed the belief that an indictable offence may have been committed .
However, she said the referral may be futile because a suspect was unable [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON solders[/url] to be identified.
Coroner Spanos found the detectives and officers called out to attend the scene failed to secure the scene and ensure a thorough forensic investigation''.
I find that the weight of evidence supports a finding that the investigation was inadequate, indeed that the errors made by [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON pas cher[/url] the police who attended the scene are largely irremediable.
The evidence does not enable me to determine why this investigation went so terribly awry. It is difficult to imagine that police members attending a similar scene in a public access bathroom or toilet, or even in a domestic setting, would so readily discount the possibility of suspicious circumstances,
I do not suggest anything deliberate or even conscious on the part of the police members who attended the scene, but absent another explanation for their failure to recognise a potentially suspicious scene, leaves open the possibility that the setting in which Freddy died may have played a role.

Righthander Pat Neshek, whose 50th outing was his 46th scoreless one for the Cardinals on Sunday at Busch Stadium, has been remarkable in his own right. But he, in turn, marvels at first-year closer Trevor Rosenthal, who gained his major-league-leading 34th save with a scoreless ninth inning. 鈥淗e doesn鈥檛 care if he has bases loaded with no outs,鈥?said Neshek.Actually, Rosenthal, 24, had runners at first and second with one out in the ninth but then struck out Scooter Gennett and Carlos Gomez to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] end the game.鈥淚f I鈥檓 out there with first and second and one out, you kind of worry a little,鈥?Neshek said. 鈥淚 haven鈥檛 been in that situation too much this year.鈥淲ith Rosey, every night there鈥檚 a guy at third or first and second.

In the latest episode of the show, reported that Sookie Stakehouse (Anna Paquin) hooking up with her one true love Bill (Stephen Moyer) made fans of the fictional and off-screen couple nervous as there are three episodes more to go. This reportedly means that there are still be a lot of things that could happen, and this [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/23-sac-porte-epaule]Sac port锟斤拷 锟斤拷paule[/url] may be the one good thing in the season before everything goes downhill.Like Us on
If there's one person who is more devastated than everyone who cares for Bill, it would be his "child" Jessica (Deborah An Woll), who has been inconsolable with the fact that her parent's Hep-V infection has quickly accelerated, no thanks to Sookie's blood, said. Sookie, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/24-sac-porte-main]Sac port锟斤拷 main[/url] on the other hand, sought several people to aid in Bill's recovery hopefully: the doctor who had treated an ill Sookie in Season 2 and Sookie's lineage Niall Brigant (Rutger Hauer). After being confronted with the truth that Bill's infection is irreparable even with magic, Sookie then resorted to stay with Bill, and made love with him.
Meanwhile, Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) is still on the hunt for Sarah Newlin (Anna Camp), whose blood could be the cure for all infected vampires, including Bill, said. However upon the discovery that Sarah's sister Amber (Natalie Hall) had helped her escape from Eric's clutches, the Nordic vampire's desire to seek the cure had sent him in a hallucinogenic state, killing him instead of Sarah. Moreoever, People said that Amber's hopes of keeping his [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/22-carte-et-porte-cles]Carte et porte-cl锟斤拷s[/url] sister alive from the people who wanted her blood, including Mr. Gus (Will Yun Lee), were dashed when Eric, Pam (Kristin Bauer Van Straten) and the businessman managed to track Sarah at an abandoned building that was used to be owned by the Fellowship of the Sun, People said.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4) 鈥?Two former Colorado State University Rams, linebacker Shaquil Barrett and running back Kapri Bibbs, are just hoping to land a spot on the Denver Broncos roster. Both are undrafted free agents and somehow have to get noticed and make something happen in a short period of time.
Last year Bibbs shocked the college football world by scoring 31 touchdowns and rushing for more than 1,700 yards. The only person he didn鈥檛 shock was himself.
Kapri Bibbs and Shaquil Barett (credit: CBS)
鈥淲hen I came out of high school I told myself I was going to do three years of college and then I was going to the pros,鈥?Bibbs said. 鈥淭hat鈥檚 how I felt and that鈥檚 what I worked every day for so I could achieve that goal.鈥?
Barrett鈥檚 success wasn鈥檛 unexpected. He was the Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year. But like Bibbs, he knows that he is starting over with the Broncos.
鈥淚鈥檓 out here to earn my [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] stripes just like everybody else. Some people have already earned them and I鈥檓 trying to be just like them,鈥?Barrett said.
Bibbs and Barrett both face uphill battles to make the team, but they compete hard each and every day 鈥?sometimes against each other.
鈥淚 know him (Bibbs) coming out, he鈥檚 going to show what he can do out there like he did at CSU,鈥?Barrett said.
鈥淚t鈥檚 competition when we鈥檙e out here, you know, and I don鈥檛 expect him to let up on me 鈥?if it鈥檚 me and him one-on-one because he has a family 鈥?he has to win, somebody has to lose,鈥?Bibbs said.
Barrett is not an average 21-year-old. He鈥檚 married and the father of two. Somehow, even with school, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] football and family, he鈥檚 kept it all together.
Shaquil Barrett with his family (credit: CBS)
鈥淓ven when he was in school, just going to school, waking up every morning, and then going home and taking care of your kids 鈥?and always have 聽a smile on his face through it all 鈥?I鈥檝e never seen this guy ever, ever have a frown or be sad,鈥?Bibbs said. 鈥淚鈥檝e never seen him put other people down or by mean to people. When you鈥檝e got two kids running around the house I鈥檓 sure that can be frustrating sometimes.鈥?
鈥淚 just don鈥檛 let the little stuff get to me,鈥?Barrett said. 鈥淎t a young age I realized the stuff I couldn鈥檛 control. As a kid I used to show my feeling all the time, but I just learned that that stuff just makes you stressed 鈥?I rarely get mad.鈥?
Rams head coach Jim McElwain took in a Broncos practice this week. He believes Barrett has to earn his stripes on special teams.
鈥淗e鈥檚 a guy who was a great special teams player for us, never took a play off, and I think that that鈥檚 one of those things that can help him grow into the position of maybe playing linebacker and that type of thing on an everyday basis,鈥?McElwain said.
McElwain also knows that nobody should ever doubt Bibbs.
鈥淚 would never bet against Kapri Bibbs. He鈥檚 a guy who has real, true confidence and great physical skills,鈥?McElwain said. 鈥淎s he grows into this position and the things [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] that you have to do in the National Football League, he鈥檚 a guy who will work at it and work on his craft. So I certainly wouldn鈥檛 bet against him.鈥?
Bibbs and Barrett are in a strange new world of the NFL, but at least for now they have each other. They鈥檙e really just a couple of young men trying to live their dreams and have fun doing it.

,聽is quite technical so stick with us. It聽states that the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 s processor may have a larger die, which could indicate that the chipset will have more on-die silicon than the smaller model. If the die really is larger, it could [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 30[/url] mean that the A8 processor inside the larger iPhone 6 will have more graphics processing cores.
In the past, has given different processors to devices in the same category. For example, the iPad Air features a faster 1.39GHz A7 processor, while the iPad Mini with Retina display comes with a slightly less powerful version of the A7, which clocks in at 1.29GHz.
It stands to reason that Apple may do the same thing with its two iPhone 6 models. Given the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] fact that the 5.5-inch version has a much larger screen, it could benefit from a slight boost in processing power. It s also doubtful that the 4.7-inch version would suffer too much with fewer graphics cores.
However, although Arcuri seems to have reached the conclusion that a larger die means a faster processor with more graphics cores, it s entirely possible that two different suppliers produced the A8 chips, resulting in a slight variation in die size, but not in overall processing power. hinted that TSMC and Samsung would split the duty of producing the A8 chips for Apple s iPhone 6.
At this point, it s impossible to tell, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] but it seems unlikely that such a small variation in clock speed would alter the performance of either model significantly.

WACO (August 4, 2014) The Waco-McLennan County Public Health District is investigating what health officials say are higher than normal levels of shigellosis cases in the county.
Shigellosis is an infectious disease that causes diarrhea, fever, vomiting and stomach cramps with a day or two after exposure to the shigella bacteria.
The number of cases has been rising since [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] June, the health district said.
As of Monday, 84 cases had been reported in the county so far this year and half of those occurred within the last two months, the city said.
Twenty-seven cases were reported in 2013.
No indication of contamination has been found in group settings or other public locations, but 75 percent of the cases have involved children 10 or younger, the health district said.
Children and especially those from 2 to 4 are most likely to get the disease and then spread it to family members.
FAQ on Shigella and Shigellosis(Source: Waco-McLennan County Public Health District)
What is shigellosis?
Shigellosis is an infectious disease caused by a group of bacteria called Shigella. Most people who are infected with Shigella develop diarrhea, fever, vomiting and stomach cramps starting a day or two after they are exposed to the bacteria. The [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] diarrhea is often bloody. Shigellosis usually resolves in 5 to 7 days. Persons with shigellosis in the United States rarely require hospitalization. A severe infection with high fever may be associated with children less than 2 years old. Some persons who are infected may have no symptoms at all, but may still pass the Shigella bacteria to others.
How is it spread?
The Shigella bacteria pass from one infected person to the next. Shigella are present in the diarrheal stools of infected persons while they are sick and for up to a week or two afterwards. Most Shigella infections are the result of the bacterium passing from stools or soiled fingers of one person to the mouth of another person.
How is it treated?
Antibiotics can treat and lessen the length of the illness. Persons with mild infections usually recover quickly without antibiotic treatment. It is best to consult your family medical professional for the appropriate treatment for your family. Antidiarrheal agents such as loperamide (Imodium*) or diphenoxylate with atropine (Lomotil*) can make the illness worse and should be avoided.
Shigella is more common in summer than winter. Children, especially toddlers aged 2 to 4, are most likely to get shigellosis. Many cases are related to the spread of illness in child-care settings, and many are the result of the spread of illness in [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] families with small children.
Some tips for preventing the spread of shigellosis:
Wash hands with soap carefully and frequently, especially after going to the bathroom, after changing diapers, and before preparing foods or beverages. Dispose of soiled diapers properly Disinfect diaper-changing areas after using them. Keep children with diarrhea out of child care settings. Supervise hand washing of toddlers and small children after they use the toilet. Do not prepare food for others while ill with diarrhea Avoid swallowing water from ponds, lakes, or untreated pools.

It was sad to hear that prominent sports administrator and business personality, Andrew Plympton, may not have enjoyed the Glasgow gold rush as much as his fellow Australian Sports Commission directors.
The man who almost [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Brea[/url] led St Kilda to the promised land of an AFL premiership as its chairman was probably keeping an eye on the slow collapse of labour hire and mining services outfit, Bluestone Global.
Corporate paramedics were finally called in Monday, but the company has been heading for the skids since May when a rights issue failed and another batch of directors left the board.
But not our stalwart Plympton of course, who only became chairman this year as the bad news started to flood in. Kind of makes up for the fact that Plympton forgot to buy any shares since coming aboard last year.

Ernst Tinkler
Bean counters and billionaires have joined the list of victims burnt by Nathan Tinkler.
Ernst Young is in the process of trying to wind up companies related to Tinkler s thoroughbred racing empire, Patinack Farm.
The bean counters are not targeting the main company that was allegedly sold to Middle Eastern businessmen -Patinack Farm Pty Ltd - but some of the related companies, Patinack Farm Holdings No. 4 to No. 8 Pty Ltd.
Tinkler s people, and Ernst Young, are keeping quiet about what exactly these five companies do, or what the debt is in relation to.
But CBD recalls that Ernst Young were called in to sell the horse racing empire last year alongside Gerry Harvey s Magic Millions, and the two parties managed to sell a significant amount of horse [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] flesh.
We know that Harvey is ready to move on what remains of Patinack to recover tens of millions of dollars he is owed. Wouldn t we love to know what the bean counters are owed for their efforts.
Baby boo boo
The biggest loser from the float of organic baby food maker, Bellamy s Organic, seems to have been Kathmandu founder, Jan Cameron.
With legal action and a public examination looming over the collapse of her discount chain, Retail Adventures, Cameron opted to sell her stake pre-float for $36.5 million and missed the huge gains on offer when it listed on Tuesday.
The 30 per cent gain the stock recorded on debut would have just about covered the $13.84 million Cameron paid to Retail Adventure s liquidators on Monday to settle claims, such as insolvent trading.
Olympism skepticism
When Channel Seven signed a marathon Olympic broadcast deal with the International Olympic Committee (IOC), CBD was intrigued to hear Seven's "unprecedented commitment" to things like promoting Olympism got it over the line.
CBD figured a fat cheque book was enough to get the IOC mob over the line.
For those wondering, Olympism is a philosophy of life, exalting and combining in a balanced whole the qualities of body, will and mind. Blending sport with culture and education, Olympism seeks to create a way of life [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] based on the joy found in effort, the educational value of good example and respect for universal fundamental ethical principles.
Sounds like the IOC itself could benefit from a dose.
Seven s deal encompasses the rights for free-to-air television, pay television, radio, digital, mobile, Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV as well as morse code and the coconut wireless.
iSelect deselects Titans
When you have presided over one of the most underwhelming floats of recent times, maybe you don t want your name to be plastered over one of the worst performing teams in the NRL, which is subject to a salary cap investigation and has just lost its coach to boot.
That might be why price comparison website iSelect has pulled out of its major sponsorship with the Gold Coast Titans half way through a five-year contract.
iSelect signed a five-year deal at the start of the 2012 season with its marketing executive David May starring in a pivotal role.
May then left iSelect to take a CEO role at an NRL club called - you guessed it - the Titans.
According to reports, the sponsorship was renegotiated mid last year when May left after less than a year into the job.

In all the talk of downsides to the Comcast-Time Warner merger, one possible upside has been overlooked: It might be a boon to poor families.
After all, the program (which offers $10-a-month broadband service to those poor families) was created three years ago as a way to gain approval of the Comcast-NBCUniversal from federal regulators. Under that agreement, the program was due to end in June. Instead, Comcast vice president David L. Cohen said Tuesday afternoon that the program is being extended 鈥渋ndefinitely鈥?鈥?and that if the merger with Time Warner is approved, be available to eligible families in 19 of the nation鈥檚 20 most-populated cities.
Why are we doing it?鈥?[url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] Cohen said during a conference call with reporters. 鈥淏ecause it s just that important.


Perhaps. But with federal scrutiny of the proposed merger with Time Warner loom, Tuesday鈥檚 announcement might鈥檝e been more than coincidental. It鈥檚 a fair bet regulators might鈥檝e required Comcast to extend the program anyway.

Cohen didn鈥檛 present Tuesday鈥檚 announcement as a pot-sweetener to federal regulators, though, but as an opportunity for current and potential customers in current Time Warner markets.
"By extending the program and continuing to make commitments, we remain firmly committed to helping low-income families get online at home and take advantage of all the Internet has to offer,鈥?he said.
The results could be a boon to poor families. In addition to announcing the indefinite extension of the Internet Essentials program鈥攖o 鈥渂ridge the digital divide,鈥?he said鈥擟ohen also announced that if they sign up before March 18.
Those cities include Philadelphia; Baltimore; Lee, Fla.; San Francisco; and Stockton, Calif., as well as Adams County, Colo.; Atlanta, Ga.; Aurora, Colo.; Chicago, Ill.; Cicero-Berwyn, Ill.; Collier, Fla.; Denver, Colo.; Elk Grove, Calif.; Fresno, Calif.; Miami, Fla.; Palm Beach, Fla.; Pasadena, Texas; Seattle, Wash.; St. Paul, Minn.; and Tacoma, Wash.
Critics suggest the Internet Essentials program has [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] underperformed 鈥?in Philadelphia, for example, a recent report suggested were using the service. Nationally, Cohen said, 1.2 million Americans in 300,000 households have signed up for the service, though up to 2.6 million Americans meet income standards to participate.
Cohen dismissed the critics. "It's taken us 15 years to get 40 percent penetration (of the potential broadband market) on the entire population,鈥?he said. "The program is only two and a half years old. We're just beginning to get our feet beneath us."
Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter was on the call to praise Cohen鈥檚 announcement, saying that 30 percent of Philadelphians don鈥檛 have home Internet access 鈥?a disadvantage when it comes to doing schoolwork or applying for jobs. 鈥淲e still have more work to do,鈥?Nutter said.
And he unabashedly threw his [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] support behind the merger. "I'm a strong supporter of the Comcast-Time Warner cable merger,鈥?Nutter said. "I have to remind folks I am not on commission at Comcast."
Cohen also said Comcast was on the verge of a 鈥渕ultiyear, multimillion-dollar鈥?partnership with the which produces YouTube videos offering instruction to young students, in range of topics. "We think (those resources) should be available to all families,鈥?Cohen said, 鈥渞egardless of income."

If there's just one thing that comes to mind when you think of Nicki Minaj, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Eden[/url] it's that giant ol' ass of hers, right? But if there are two things that come to mind when you think of Nicki Minaj, it would be her ass and also her incredible ability to be obnoxious. Those are her gifts, guys, and she managed [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] to bring the both together in her brand new music video. All the gifts!That's the little teaser up there to her video for "Anaconda." You might be confused, because it sort of appears that she just did a music video to a remix of "Baby Got Back," but apparently this is her latest single. See what I mean about that obnoxiousness? It's all coming together, now, huh?Still, it's always mesmerizing to see Nicki shake that behind, and she does plenty of that in these few precious seconds.

Among some fans, the rap on professional basketball is that players run up and down the court for 45 minutes, exchanging buckets, but games often are decided in the final three minutes of intense physicality.The same could be said for the California Legislature, which spends months in session but typically delays big, difficult issues until the frantic final few days.Some of that tendency is merely human nature the reluctance to make difficult decisions until they absolutely must be made.Some of it is by design. It's easier to hide something if procedures are bypassed and everyone is preoccupied. This "low-balling" happens every year, and it may take weeks before the public and even lawmakers learn what [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] was wrought in the dead of night.Whether done publicly or clandestinely, as the Legislature reconvenes this week for the final four weeks of the 2012-14 session, there are many pending issues:-- The size and details of a water bond to replace an [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] $11.1 billion proposal already on the Nov. 4 ballot. The prevailing assumption is that it must be changed because it's likely to be rejected, but a recent poll is inconclusive.-- Regulation of groundwater, which farmers have been tapping heavily as drought dries up surface supplies.-- Legislation to more or less ban plastic grocery bags.-- A promise to give Northrup Grumman the same tax break already enacted for Lockheed Martin, its competitor for a Pentagon bomber contract.-- A bill pushed by some Democrats to delay placing auto fuel under the cap-and-trade greenhouse gas program because it could substantially boost fuel prices, already among the nation's highest.-- A measure asking voters to press Congress for immigration reform, even though Gov. Jerry Brown says he doesn't want more advisory propositions on the ballot.-- A boost in college financing being pushed by Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins.-- A school bond that educators and business groups back, but that Brown evidently doesn't want.-- Whether the Legislature will streamline executions of murderers in the wake of a federal court ruling that delays making them unconstitutional.-- The four bills still alive from the state Chamber of Commerce's 27-bill "job killer" list, since all others have died or been stalled or neutralized.In terms of importance, the water bond looms the largest, given the severe drought. Brown wants a small bond, most legislators want a larger one and there is much angst over its effect, if any, on Brown's "twin tunnels" project in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The groundwater regulation issue complicates the picture even more.In terms of election-year impact, however, the bills that would affect consumers gasoline prices and plastic bags could be the biggies.

The Rev. Al Sharpton introduces Ramsey Orta at the funeral of Eric Garner at Bethel Baptist Church in the Brooklyn borough of New York on Wednesday, July 23, 2014. Garner died in police custody after an officer placed him in an apparent chokehold. Orta shot [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] video of the incident. (AP Photo/New York Daily News, Julia Xanthos, Pool)

NEW YORK (AP) 鈥?The man who recorded video of a fatal police chokehold in New York City has been arrested on gun charges, police said Sunday.
Police said 22-year-old Ramsey Orta was arrested Saturday night on Staten Island, a few blocks from where officers confronted his friend Eric聽Garner on July 17.
Orta, whose recording of an officer restraining Garner with a chokehold fueled outcry against the police, is charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
Police said Orta had a previous weapon conviction that prohibited him from possessing a firearm.
He is due in court this month on robbery charges stemming from a May arrest and an assault charge from an arrest three days before Garner s death, according to court records.
Orta s latest arrest came a day after the city s medical examiner ruled Garner s death a homicide caused by the officer s [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] chokehold, as well as the compression of his chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police.
Patrick Lynch, the president of the city s largest police union, described the encounter between Garner and police as a tragedy but said Orta s arrest only underscores the dangers that brought police officers to respond to a chronic crime condition in Staten Island s Tompkinsville community.
The Rev. Al Sharpton, who called Orta to the lectern at Garner s funeral and said the city should thank God he was there to record video when the police and EMS failed us, called the arrest irrelevant.
No one is questioning the validity of the tape, and the medical examiner has validated it, Sharpton said Sunday.
Police said plainclothes officers from a Staten Island narcotics unit saw Orta stuff a silver-colored, .25-caliber handgun into a 17-year-old female companion s waistband after they emerged from a brief stop at the Hotel Richmond. Police called the location, on Central Avenue, a known drug prone location.
The unloaded semi-automatic weapon recovered was reported stolen in Michigan in 2007, police said. Officers charged the 17-year-old with criminal possession of a weapon and unlawful possession of .
Police said Orta was in a hospital Sunday for treatment of a medical condition. No details were available. It was not immediately clear if Orta or the 17-year-old had lawyers.
An attorney representing Orta in the robbery case did not return a telephone message.
Sharpton and Garner s widow, Esaw Garner, have called for Staten Island prosecutors to charge the officers involved in his death or turn the case over to federal authorities.
The officer who placed Garner in the chokehold was stripped [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] of his gun and badge pending the investigation. Another officer was placed on desk duty.
Two paramedics and two emergency medical technicians were suspended without pay.
Orta echoed the call for arrest in Garner s death after hearing the medical examiner s ruling Friday.
I knew that was the cause because I saw it, he said. Now somebody should get charged.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre will be inducted into the organization s Hall of Fame and have his number retired in 2015. The news, announced August 4th, elicited a variety of reactions from fans. 聽FOX6 caught up with some of Favre s former teammates聽who agree the Ol Gunslinger very much deserves the honors.
Oh, no question. I wouldn t have a Super Bowl ring if it wasn t for him, and Reggie, Dorsey Levens and Edgar Bennett. That whole team is very special, said former Packers defensive back LeRoy Butler.
Butler played for the Packers from 1990 to 2001 and now hosts a sports radio talk show. He [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] says Favre s induction into the Hall of fame is long overdue.
I would tell anybody that Brett is the best teammate in history. He never cared about himself. It was always what he could do for his teammates, Butler said.
Butler says his opinion of Favre is not only sky-high on the football field, but in life in general.
One time I ran out of gas and he actually gave me his car to drive for a couple of days, said Butler. He carpooled. I [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] thought, well maybe he has another car, but he carpooled, and guys said why are you carpooling? Oh, LeRoy s driving my car. It was just unbelievable.
Former Packers linebacker George Koonce, now Vice President at Marian University, reflects on Favre s career.
I m ecstatic because I had a chance to play with Brett for eight years, said Koonce. My favorite memory was when Brett was running around on the football field after we won the Super Bowl down in New Orleans.
Koonce and Favre have known each other for 25 years, dating back to their rival college days.
I d rather play with him than against him, said Koonce.
Koonce also remembers Favre s messy exit from the team, and the sting of the quarterback signing with the Vikings, but says time heals all wounds.
Brett played for the Packers for 16 years. 聽He is a family member, and sometimes family members do things that a majority of the family don t really like, but it s time to bury the hatchet [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] and move on, said Koonce.
Butler adds it s important for the Packers to induct Favre into the team Hall of Fame before he is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He says this move will make Favre s eventual induction in Canton, Ohio even better for the fans.

Method
1. To make the yakitori sauce mix all the ingredients together in a small pan and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes or so, or until the sauce has thickened to a glazing consistency.
2. Cut the chicken into 2.5cm cubes. Cut the spring onions into [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton SC Bag[/url] 2.5cm-long sticks. Place two pieces of chicken on the skewer followed by a spring onion baton, continue the same pattern, then finish the eight skewers.
3. Heat a barbecue to high, I like these done over charcoal if possible. Oil the bars of the grill and spread out the chicken skewers on it. Grill both sides of the chicken until the juices drip but don't overcook, then brush the sauce on the skewers and put back on the grill, and grill for 30 [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] seconds on each side, repeating the glazing process twice more.
4. Place the skewers on plates and drizzle with the last of the glaze, sprinkle with shichimi togarashi (Japanese spice mix, available from Asian grocers) and serve with lemon wedges.
HOT TIPS:
The chicken thighs can be replaced with any part of the chicken you like: wings, for instance, would be fantastic. You could also do a mix of things like breast, wings, livers and hearts; this way of doing chicken offal is terrific. The sauce is also great with chicken stir-fried and finished with the glaze and some rice. A few of your favourite vegetables in it would be good, too.
Shichimi togarashi is a Japanese spice mix of between seven and nine different things, each adding more complexity of flavour. You will generally find these ingredients in it: chilli [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Sistina[/url] flakes, sansho pepper, dried citrus peel, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, hemp seeds, ginger, garlic, shiso and nori. Buy some and you will be sprinkling it on all your barbecued food.
If you buy a small Japanese barbecue and get some charcoal, I promise you will be cooking stick food all the time - it's a perfect way to eat healthily.

It's a chaotic world out there. But we'd better get used to it; this may be the new normal. The Middle East is in flames, not only Gaza but Syria, Iraq and Libya as well. Russia is massing troops on the border of Ukraine. Central Africa is a mess, as are Afghanistan and Pakistan. Parts of Mexico and Central America are ruled by criminal gangs and drug cartels. And those are merely the crises big enough to command front-page attention. "This is historically unprecedented," former national security advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski told Foreign Policy magazine recently. "Huge swaths of global territory are dominated by populist unrest, anger and effective loss of state control." Brzezinski's point wasn't merely that disorder is loose in the world; that's happened in earlier periods of war and revolution (think of Europe in the aftermath of World War I, for example). His point was that chaos is breaking out simultaneously in many regions, and that governments are less capable of meeting those challenges than before. Moreover, in an age of instant communication, conflicts can spread more readily. In the Middle East, the democratic uprisings of the Arab Spring led to anarchy in Libya, a counterrevolution in Egypt and a civil war in Syria. The war in Syria immediately became part of the larger, regionwide conflict between Sunni and Shiite Muslims, and spread across the border into Iraq. And with that, two epic struggles were joined: the political battle over who will govern the fractious nations of the Arab world, and a religious war between two major branches of Islam. These [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] aren't the kind of conflicts that end quickly or neatly. Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, says the closest analogy he can come up with is the Thirty Years' War between Catholics and Protestants, a conflict that devastated Europe from 1618 to 1648. That's a daunting thought. [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] And it's not only the Middle East. Ever since the end of the Cold War 25 years ago, foreign policy pundits have been warning that the world is becoming more unstable because power is fragmenting. Big governments and conventional armies could once command obedience around the world; in the 19th century, five British warships compelled the sultan of Zanzibar to surrender after only 38 minutes of artillery fire. The great powers don't enjoy that kind of military superiority anymore. The United States spent more than a decade in Iraq and Afghanistan but couldn't fully pacify either country. The reason isn't that the great powers are no longer powerful; the difference is that their opponents - balky local governments, insurrectionists and jihadists alike - are more potent than they used to be. They're better equipped, better funded and more skilled at guerrilla warfare. At the same time, outside powers like the United States have lost their appetite for fighting long counterinsurgency wars. It's become harder and more costly to keep a lid on the developing world's disorders, so we're more reluctant to try. The result is what one scholar, Randall Schweller of Ohio State, has called "an age of entropy" - a leaderless world with no superpowers to enforce order. Republicans have two words to explain how we got to this leaderless state of affairs: Barack Obama. But the big changes around the world aren't entirely (or even mainly) his fault. Nor are they, as Democrats insist, mainly the fault of his predecessor, George W. Bush, who took the United States to war in Iraq. That's not to say that either of their foreign policies was flawless. Bush had a naive faith in America's ability to extend the reach of democracy. Obama began his presidency with a naive hope that an outstretched hand to Iran, Russia and other adversaries would be met with cooperation. And, when the Arab Spring arrived, he underestimated the problems that upheaval would bring, trying to promote democracy on the cheap by cheering uprisings in Libya, Syria and elsewhere, but doing little to help them succeed. Obama has now retreated to a more minimalist version of his foreign policy. Despite what his most partisan critics assert, he hasn't abandoned international affairs; instead, he has focused on his biggest priorities: counter-terrorism, Iran, China and Russia. But his core foreign policy doctrine is now one of restraint. That's been infuriating to internationalists who view the United States as the indispensable nation, duty-bound to sort out the world's problems. As Brzezinski put it: "We are ... increasingly devoid of strategic will and a sense of direction." That's overstated. But if Obama is looking for a big goal for his final years in office, here's one he should embrace (and can hardly avoid): articulating an overarching global strategy for the United States in an increasingly chaotic world, and convincing Americans that it makes sense. How? That's a question for another column. ABOUT THE WRITER Doyle McManus is a columnist for The Los Angeles Times. Readers may send him email at doyle.mcmanus@latimes.com

In current prices, the trend estimate for retail turnover rose 0.1 per cent in June following a rise of 0.1 per cent in May 2014.
The Australia dollar spiked on the June numbers, as traders bet the sales improvement would make the chances of an interest rate cut by the Reserve Bank of Australia even less likely.
Advertisement
However, some economists were lukewarm [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sandals-46]Sandals[/url] in their response.
National Australia Bank s senior economist Spiros Papadopoulos said although Monday s numbers chimed with better consumer confidence and credit data for June, retail sales since January have essentially gone sideways after the strong gains in 2013 .
The level of sales has risen just 0.5 per cent since January, while in trend terms sales are rising by just 0.1 per cent per month, he said in a note.
The moderation in house price growth excluding NSW and Victoria [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sneakers-34]Sneakers Louis Vuitton[/url] a slightly higher unemployment rate and market talk of potential RBA rate rises have seen consumers ease back on spending growth this year.
We anticipate that retail sales will continue to rise in the months ahead, but we expect that growth will be very modest from month to month.
For the year, in trend terms, retail turnover rose 5.3 per compared with June 2013. Seasonally-adjusted, the rise was 5.5 per cent, the ABS said.
The ABS said food retailing (0.1 per cent), goods retailing (0.3 per cent), other retailing (0.2 per cent) and cafes, restaurants and takeaway food services [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/loafers-57]Loafers Louis Vuitton[/url] (0.1 per cent) all posted month-on-month increases in trend terms.
However, clothing, footwear and personal accessory retailing and department stores fell in June 2014.
Seasonally adjusted, the biggest gains were seen in household goods retailing, food, other retailing and clothing, footwear and accessories. These were offset by decreased spending in cafes, restaurants and takeaway outlets and department stores.
For the June quarter, retail turnover fell 0.2 per cent, seasonally-adjusted, following a rise of 1.3 per cent in the March quarter 2014.

LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) - Off in the deep forest of Larimer County, well off the trail, is a spot where the ground is littered with twisted metal an odd sight so deep in the woods. Ron Miller and friends Dave Sinew and Amy Metz climbed here for a look at the shreds of aviation history.
Take a 28,000-pound airplane and disassemble it by flying through trees. It turns into shards like that, said Ron Miller as he looked at pieces of what was once the newest technology of its day a DC-6. It was dark, 2 o clock in the morning and they were descending and just flew into these trees and started coming apart, said Miller. United Flight 610 was the biggest air disaster in U.S. history at the time in the early 1950s.
They are wreck chasers. It鈥檚 a hobby that鈥檚 garnered a few aviation buffs and Colorado is a place where there are more wrecks than just about anywhere outside of Alaska. Ron Miller is a pilot who started looking for things to do when he read an article about a World War II-era B-17 wreck north of Rocky Mountain National Park. He began to hike to wrecks to chart, describe and photograph them, but to leave them alone.
Anything over 50 years is protected just like Indian pottery, he said. It would be a federal crime to take anything or disturb it even.
Ron Miller examines wreckage from a plane. (credit: CBS)
The United crash left 50 dead and no survivors. The plane was way off course en route to Denver as it hopped from California to Chicago. Eventually investigators would blame pilot error, saying the pilot was used to the configuration of another aircraft, the DC-3, and probably had switches in the darkened cockpit in the wrong position, leading to incorrect radio positioning signals.
To establish that, they removed the engines from the side of Crystal Mountain where the plane went down, mowing its way through the trees. But carting off the rest of the wreckage was too difficult; they dug big trenches with heavy equipment and plowed over the rest of the wreckage.
Today, much of it is buried in mounds in the quiet forest. But over the years, erosion and souvenir hunters have uncovered some pieces. A hinge and a frame, said Miller as he looked at what was on the ground. I think that was an internal door of some kind.
A memorial at a crash site (credit: CBS)
Only a few miles away there鈥檚 a memorial to the crew of an Army B-17 near Pingree Park. It was one of hundreds of military aircraft that went down on a training flight in Colorado during World War II. The crash killed eight.
Ray Fowler flies a B-17 today for an organization called The Liberty Foundation. It鈥檚 a plane painted to resemble the most famous B-17 of all-time, the Memphis Belle.
You gotta remember almost everybody that was in the military at that point was between 18 and 24 years old. A lot of these guys had never even seen a car or didn t even have a driver s license, said Fowler.
Add to that, many of the people maintaining the planes were young and inexperienced and weather data was primitive. The young pilots had no clue about the difficulties of flying over Colorado鈥檚 mountains.
You got guys all the way from New Jersey to California鈥?that have never seen mountains like there are in Colorado, he said.
News reel footage documents a crash decades ago. (credit: CBS)
They aren鈥檛 the only ones who crashed due to foolish errors in calculating loss of horsepower over high altitudes. Colorado鈥檚 mountains are littered with small planes, often flown by out-of-state pilots who chose routes that took them toward box canyons where they couldn鈥檛 escape. Even experienced pilots made similar errors.
One of the most famous was the crash of the plane carrying the Wichita State football team in 1970. Half the team was on another plane headed west. That pilot took the proper route north over Wyoming. But the team鈥檚 top players were on board a plane whose pilots chose what was to be a more scenic route. Today, there鈥檚 a memorial to the victims along I-70 shortly before the Eisenhower Tunnel.
The plane was flying low through the mountains when the pilots realized they could not get over the high pass ahead and tried to turn around. The plane lost power and slammed into the trees only about a thousand feet north of present day I-70, but up a steep slope.
It has traumatized me, but it also gave me my career direction, said John Putt a longtime EMT and member of the Alpine Rescue Team. Putt was along with Alpine on an explorer program at only 12 years old when he was at the crash site. I unfortunately that night froze and basically stood motionless for an hour and a half while the rest of the searchers went around the site.
The Wichita State football memorial (credit: CBS)
There were a few survivors of the Wichita State crash. They have from time to time, visited the along with loved ones to remember the 31 who died. They have left small memorials and a few mementos. Looking at the site today, it鈥檚 difficult to understand how anyone could have survived.
Aviation has gotten safer through the years. United 610 even brought about a change in cockpit design as experts gleaned a lesson from the tragedy. Today, Ron Miller and friends are respectful and curious about what happened at the site and how so many died.
You have to feel bad for people who suffered the consequences of the uncertainty and unreliability of this form of transportation in the 40s and 50s and even into the 60s.

"Cotton is second for most pesticide use of all crops it uses 25% of all of the petrochemical based pesticides, fungicides and herbicides globally," he says. "The Environmental Protection Agency considers [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-idylle-70]LV Monogram Idylle[/url] seven of the top 15 pesticides used on cotton in the United States as 'possible,' 'likely,' 'probable,' or 'known' human carcinogens (acephate, dichloropropene, diuron, fluometuron, pendimethalin, tribufos, and trifluralin). These chemicals absorb into the soil which can affect nearby crops, get into water supplies and rivers and affect many lifeforms downstream." 
Young follows the information about cotton agriculture with a few tips on sustainable laundry habits, noting that most of a garment's environmental impacts come from washing and drying. Among the rumpled-rocker-friendly tips, he suggests line-drying over machine drying, skipping the iron and washing less often. He also notes that hemp is an even better choice than organic cotton, but less widely available.
Young has long been involved in environmental activism, from his role as a Farm Aid co-founder to the promotion of his LincVolt electric car. He'll be headlining Farm Aid, along with Jack [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/monogram-multicolore-71]Monogram Multicolore[/url] White, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, on September 13th in Raleigh, North Carolina. Young will also resume his solo acoustic tour of American theaters this fall.

NEW YORK A brilliant decision in developing
the recent audio-over-IP standard, AES67-2013,
was basing it on existing protocols.
One of the goals for this AES standard for audio
applications of networks High-performance
streaming audio-over-IP interoperability was to
provide low latency (less than 10 milliseconds)
between and among AES67 devices on a network.
With that in mind, the developers of this standard
chose IEEE 1588. The most recent version
is from 2008, and the standard is currently being
reviewed for possible revisions.
IEEE 1588 is used for high-speed synchronization
over the network. It was the only obvious
choice for establishing a synchronization mechanism
said Greg Shay, a member of the AES task
group that developed the standard.
Industrial applications such as automation,
control and measurement employ IEEE 1588
where precision timing in the nanosecond range
or less is required. IEEE 1588 doesn t automatically
dictate the accuracy of the clock rather it
allows implementation to be as tight as required.
IEEE 1588 differs from network time protocol (NTP) in that the latter was not designed
to have nanoseconds of precision.
RELYING ON THE CLOCK
Timing in video or digital audio systems
is not a new concept. A video system relies
on a master sync generator that produces
black burst that s distributed and
hardwired to every video and digital audio
device in the system. For standalone digital
audio systems, it s a word clock generator
that provides the reference. In each of
these cases, a separate cable is generally
used for the timing reference.
IEEE 1588 system timing also relies
upon clocks, as might be expected, but the
clocks work a bit differently. Every AES67
device that needs to communicate with
each other (such [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] as audio consoles, codecs,
processors, interface boxes) is connected
to a network via Ethernet switches.
It s important to note that the network
we re talking about for AES67 isn t the
public Internet, but rather a managed network
like an enterprise LAN or WAN. And
to achieve its low-latency potential, professional-
grade (high performance) Ethernet switches are necessary. (More on switches
in a bit.)
Each device connected to the network
has its own clock. One clock that is used
for reference is designated the grandmaster.
IEEE 1588 provides a means for
the network to automatically designate a
clock as [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] a grandmaster based on its stability,
accuracy and quality, among other criteria. For example, a clock referenced to
GPS would be a likely candidate for grandmaster
status.
While the grandmaster reference can,
in theory, be anywhere on a network, Shay
said it s best if it s located near other devices
on the network (such as those within
a facility) to avoid long IP connections.
The grandmaster transmits over the
network a small packet of data, the PTP
message, with a time stamp of the current
time. This multicasted message is received
by all the other devices on the network, the slaves, which synchronize to the
reference. Or thinking in video systems
terms, the devices are effectively gen-locked
to the reference.
Unlike in a video system, the IEEE 1588
timing reference doesn t travel on separate
cables. Rather it is transmitted on the same
network as the digital audio packets. However
the timing and audio packets are completely separate. When the PTP message
(clock data) is received by a device on the
network, it runs an algorithm to adjust its
local clock to synchronize with the grandmaster
clock.
When the grandmaster sends its PTP
messages, it takes a finite amount of time
to reach all the slave devices on the IP network.
To provide greater timing accuracy,
IEEE 1588 provides a means to measure the
roundtrip time from grandmaster to slave
and back to grandmaster, and to compensate
for this offset.
BACK TO THE SWITCHES
In addition to this roundtrip delay,
there are also delays through the Ethernet
switches themselves as they buffer and
transmit data packets. If a switch could provide
a measurement of how long it takes a
packet to get through it, that information
could also be used to fine-tune timing. The
2008 revision of IEEE 1588 provides for
what is called a transparent clock that
does just that.
A switch with a transparent clock, tries
to correct the time stamp for the time packet,
Shay, who is also chief science officer
for Telos Alliance, said. This occurs in the
switch itself and reduces the error at each
stage of the process.
A problem for an AES67 system design
is that switches with transparent clocks
aren t that common, at least not right now.
There are some IEEE 1588-aware switches.
Shay said. These switches are not yet
ubiquitous, but they are becoming more
available. [The system] works better with
the special switch, but you don t have to
use them. There s less [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] error with an IEEE
1588 switch, but you can achieve a certain
level of accuracy without [it].
In addition to the types of clocks already
mentioned, IEEE 1588 describes yet another type, a boundary clock, which slaves to
a grandmaster and, acting like a sub-master,
retransmits timing data to slave devices
down the line.
Audio over IP is multichannel in the
sense that a source connected in some way
to the network can be made available to every
other destination device. No more need
for audio distribution amplifiers to send
shared feeds to different studios.
Shay said that a 1 gigabit Ethernet connection
can carry 250 stereo audio channels.
Of course redundant cables would be
good systems design.
This is the point where MADI is way
obsolete, he said. AoIP has many times
more capacity than MADI with a smaller
cable connection.

DAKAR, Senegal (August 4, 2014) The death toll from the worst recorded outbreak of Ebola has reached 887, an increase of 158 since figures were first released on July 31, the World Health Organization said Monday.
WHO said in [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] a statement [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] on Monday that there now have been more than 1,600 cases of Ebola since the disease emerged in Guinea earlier this year.
The news came as Nigeria announced Monday that it has confirmed a second case in Africa's most populous nation.
The patient is a doctor [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] who treated the man who died in Nigeria last month.
WHO says there now have been a total of 358 deaths in Guinea, 255 deaths in Liberia, 273 deaths in Sierra Leone and one in Nigeria.

Rising stockpiles and price weakness were [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/bagages-louis-vuitton-48]Bagages Louis Vuitton[/url] also factors in the write-down and eventual sale last week by
ANZ research shows that the forecast average price of coking coal, which is burned in blast furnaces to make steel, for this calendar year is $US125 a tonne, compared with $US159 last year.
Advertisement
The prognosis for thermal coal, which is used mainly for energy generation, is not much better. ANZ forecasts an average price this year of $US74 per tonne, against $US84 last year. ANZ says the situation is unlikely to improve in the near, or medium, term and has downgraded price estimates for the next three years.
It says the main driver of oversupply has been China, whose coal production has risen by 3.3 billion tonnes or 400 per cent since 2000. Australian coal suppliers have been contributing to oversupply, too. Exports from Australia rose by 13.5 per cent year-on-year in 2013, to a record 360 million tonnes. So far this year, exports are up by more than 10 per cent on a comparable 2013 period, ANZ says.
Australia has the world s fourth-largest proven reserves of coal, and accounts for more than half the world s exports of coking coal, the Minerals Council of Australia says.
Companies with coal operations are feeling the pinch of price weakness in their shares prices. Despite good news from conglomerate Wesfarmers retail operations this year, weaker coal prices have held back its share price. Citigroup recently cut its 2015 profit forecast for the company after factoring in lower [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-louis-vuitton-50]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] coal prices and rising costs at Wesfarmers Curragh mine in Queensland.
Wesfarmers' shares have risen by 4 per cent this month to $43.65, but the stock has underperformed the broader market this year, falling by 0.9 per cent, compared with a 4 per cent rise in the S P/ASX 200 index.
While Coles profits are expected to rise by 9 per cent and Bunnings by 5 per cent, Citigroup expects Wesfarmers' earnings from resources to fall to $47 million in 2015, down from a forecast $74 million in 2014 and $148 million in 2013.
Shares in Whitehaven, whose mines are concentrated in the Gunnedah basin in NSW, are down by about 75 per cent from historical highs in 2011, and by 12 per cent this year.
Queensland coalminer New Hope s stock is trading 28 per cent lower on [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/court-portefeuilles-74]Court Portefeuilles[/url] the year, and almost 50 per cent off historical highs in late 2011, the peak of the current pricing cycle for both types of coal.
Despite the bleak near-term outlook, ANZ is more upbeat in the longer-term, saying reduced capital expenditure on new mine capacity in Australia and Indonesia plants the seeds for a tighter supply backdrop and price recovery in 2016 and 2017 .
At the same time, it remains positive on longer-term demand dynamics, with coal remaining a base-load power source in China and [with] industrial and infrastructure activity in India gathering pace .

All American Rejects' great performance is Musikfest's 'Dirty Little Secret'The All-American Rejects performed Saturday night at Sands Steel Stage (CHRIS KNIGHT, SPECIAL TO )August 03, 2014|By Taylor Farnsworth, Of The Morning CallAt the All American Rejects concert at Musikfest's Steel Stage on Saturday, it was clear the band knows where its success lies.It began with "Dirty Little Secret," a 2005 song that's one of the band's best known. With a handful of hits to its name, relevance to the Top-40 crowd dwindling and no big hits since "Gives You Hell" in 2008, the band still [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton Soldes[/url] knew how to please a crowd.As the festival's first national headlining act of 2014 after ZZ Top's opening-night cancellation, the Rejects drew just 2,477 people a number that was boosted by a lot of recent ticket giveaways, but still will be Musikfest's lowest this year.But that didn't hurt the quality of the show. Instead, with a lively performance, All American Rejects may just be the "Dirty Little Secret" of this year's Musikfest.Lead singer Tyson Ritter's stage presence was electric giving it his all and proving that at age 30 and a dozen years after starting All American Rejects, he's still got it.Throughout the set, Ritter teased the crowd, mixing hits with lesser-known tracks. As he did, he made sure to make comments to the audience about knowing what songs they really wanted to hear.As a band that achieved most of its success a decade ago, the Rejects are clearly aware that most of the crowd was there for the band's hit singles. Despite that, they managed to give a balanced performance, with some of the deeper cuts proving to be as much standouts as the hits."My Paper Heart" from the Rejects' first album was among the earlier tracks that seemed to seamlessly transition from recording to a live setting. The band continued its set with songs such as the "Beekeeper's Daughter" from its latest album, 2012's "Kid in the Street," "Walk Over Me" and "Stab My Back" before returning to hits with "Swing Swing."The crowd's energy was apparent on that last song, with much of the audience [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/23-sac-porte-epaule]Sac port锟斤拷 锟斤拷paule[/url] singing along.Ritter was charming even when singing darker songs, making "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" jokes and commenting about scooping up dead goldfish back home. With a little bit of banter about a high-school-aged Ritter forming the band, the group transitioned to an acoustic number with "Mona Lisa," one of the sweeter, standout songs of the night.The band continued with "One More Sad Song" and "It Ends Tonight." Both tracks are more solemn in their messages, but showed that Ritter doesn't always need to be dancing around the stage to keep your attention.The band then finished its 14-song set with "Move Along," before returning for a two-song encore with the title track from "Kids in the Street," then "Gives You Hell."On that last song, the crowd went crazy, jumping up and down, full of energy, proving the All American Rejects still have it.With a set of songs that are an ode to love and relationships whether telling an ex that you hope your face gives them hell, or falling apart over a breakup the band brought a bit of angst to the stage.Even if you're experiencing none of these things, the band's stage presence and Ritter's electric personality showed the All American Rejects isn't a band to be forgotten. Maybe just kept a dirty little secret.MORE MUSIKFEST ONLINE Schedule of events Photo galleries Concert reviews Performer interviewshttp://www.mcall.com/musikfestFeatured ArticlesMore:Related ArticlesNovember 29, 2012July 9, 2010April 28, 2005September 13, 2012October 22, 2005Find More Stories About|||Please note the green-lined linked article [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/24-sac-porte-main]Sac port锟斤拷 main[/url] text has been applied commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

DENVER (CBS4) 鈥?Denver Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried, who came on really strong at the end of last season, says he hopes to take on more of a leadership role on the team next year, but now he鈥檚 focused on playing for Team USA.
Because of Faried鈥檚 excellent play last year he was rumored to be traded, but it didn鈥檛 happen. He said it weighed heavily on him at the time. He鈥檚 got a year left on his contract but said he isn鈥檛 thinking about that right now.
Kenneth Faried with CBS4 s Vic Lombardi on Xfinity Monday Live! (credit: CBS)
鈥淗onestly, for a contract, I m not really big on that right now. I m more focused on trying to make USA team, trying to basically reach some goals that I wanted to do since I was a little boy. Put on that red, white and blue is all I really care about right now,鈥?Faried said on Xfinity Monday Live! 鈥淓verything else will figure itself out.鈥?
CBS4鈥檚 Vic [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] Lombardi asked Faried if in the long term he wanted to stay a Denver Nugget.
鈥淟ong term, I just want to play, honestly. If I m a Nugget for the rest of my life, I m ecstatic about that,鈥?he said. 鈥淚f I go somewhere else, I鈥檓 still ecstatic, as long as I鈥檓 playing basketball. I love this game.鈥?
As a rookie head coach, Brian Shaw came in and tried to have the team play a little more half court. Then he let go of the reins and let the players be themselves. It鈥檚 not clear how he will approach it next season, but Faried said he鈥檒l go with whatever helps the team win.
鈥淚 think he s going to be more open to certain things with us, especially me [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] coming back from USA basketball. I think I m going to have a little bit more of a leadership role because of the fact that I ve been around guys that are leaders and saw how they work,鈥?Faried said. 鈥淭hey push each other to make each other better.鈥?
Shaw has said all along that he needs a big veteran presence in the locker room. Enter Arron Afflalo, who is coming back for his second stint with the Nuggets after a stellar season in Orlando.

鈥淗e can score, Arron can score now, and just watching how Arron played in Orlando and how he basically was the leader for that team. It was just amazing to see how he s matured, and now he s back and he s a different person,鈥?Faried said. 鈥淗e was telling me how I m after it, we鈥檙e going to come in here, we re trying to become a playoff team again and make a push in the playoffs and get out of the first round. That s the biggest deal with us.鈥?
Faried said he hasn鈥檛 had a chance to play with rookie guard Gary Harris, but he likes what he sees.
Gary Harris (credit: CBS)
鈥淚鈥檝e met him, but I haven t played with or against him,鈥?he said. 鈥淏ut (I鈥檝e seen) his summer league play 鈥?he can [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] score the ball.鈥?
It鈥檚 going to be hard for Harris to get playing time, but Faried says anything is possible.
鈥淚f you鈥檙e willing to put in the work, the hours, the time and just continue to be enthusiastic and put in that extra oomph that coach wants to see from you, he s going to find a place for you to play.鈥?

Time flies, y'all -- it seems like just yesterday that , but guess what: Sinead and [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-cuir-suhali-58]LV Cuir Suhali[/url] her good sense -- despite the fact that it'll be a year in October -- has not given up, and now instead of penning open letters to a passive-aggressive and sometimes outright-rude Miley Cyrus, she's learning lessons and helping others find their true selves by speaking out. In a recent , Sinead had this to say when asked about her history with Miley: "I learnt something very important from all that: you get a whole lot of publicity if you sex yourself up. There was no noble thought behind it.''Hear that little "poofing" noise? That's the sound of Miley's over-amped ego deflating, and she doesn't even know it. Sinead hit [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-denim-60]LV Monogram Denim[/url] the nail right on its tongue-waggling head with that quip, and it's that Miley -- however talented she may be -- is simply using gifts that nearly everybody has in one way, shape, or form to further her career instead of relying on her own vocational capabilities instead. Sinead also made mention of the where she, herself, donned all the makeup and hair and what it did for publicity and her image: ''It's kind of fascinating what hair can do ... But I don't think anyone seriously expected me to keep that up. ... I just did a video, six hours in a wig and [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-mini-64]LV Monogram Mini[/url] latex dress. I was sweating, it was disgusting. I discovered really why I haven't dressed like a girl more often. The upkeep would be awful. I don't necessarily fit into the mould that it seems females are supposed to fit into. I'm kind of irregular. My own hair is unruly. It's a mess. I feel more like me with it shaved.''See, now, doesn't everybody just want to go ahead and shave their heads, if for no other reason than to see how it makes them feel? And also, Sinead -- how great is she, right?

Bill Belichick and Jay Gruden will have their players in full pads on both Monday and Tuesday, followed by a lighter session on Wednesday morning.
Obviously we鈥檙e not game planning for them or anything. We鈥檒l just go down there, do what we do and they鈥檒l do what they do and we鈥檒l kind of figure it out as we go, Belichick said Friday night after the Patriots practiced in front of season ticket holders at Gillette Stadium. It will be a good experience for us to work against Coach Gruden鈥檚 offense, Coach [Jim] Haslett鈥檚 defense and see some different matchups. We鈥檝e seen our guys go against our guys a lot and now we鈥檒l get to see them go against somebody else.
Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III spoke to the media over the weekend, and said he d love to pick Tom Brady s brain if given the chance.
To tell you I won t be looking at Tom Brady and seeing what [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] he s doing would be a lie, Griffin said, . I ll be looking at him. He won t be the focus of my attention the entire time he s here. But he s been a great quarterback in the league for a long time, so you want to soak up whatever knowledge from him.
If I get a chance to sit down and talk to him, I d love to, just to pick his brain, he continued. But he s also still playing quarterback in the NFL. It s a competitive position, a competitive sport. So I don t expect him to give me any groundbreaking secrets.

Researchers from the University of Louisville will lead an international effort to utilize tobacco plants in HIV prevention, the university announced today.
 
The researchers will develop a gel containing a specific protein that will prevent the transmission of HIV. The project is being funded by a five-year, $14.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health.

Kenneth Palmer, professor of pharmacology and toxicology and director of the Owensboro Cancer Research Program of UofL鈥檚 James Graham Brown Cancer Center, is leading a team of researchers from the University of Pittsburgh, the Magee-Women鈥檚 Research Institute in Pittsburgh, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden, the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada, the University of Maryland, Baltimore and Kentucky Bioprocessing Inc. and Intrucept Biomedicine LLC in Owensboro.
 
The team is working with the carbohydrate combining protein Griffithsin (GRFT), which is found in red algae. In laboratory work, the protein has shown to have broad-spectrum activity against HIV. GRFT binds to the dense shield of sugars that surrounds HIV cells and prevents these cells from entering other non-HIV cells. The team plans to develop a gel containing the protein for use during sexual intercourse by people at risk for HIV transmission.
 
To develop the microbicide, Palmer鈥檚 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] team takes a synthetic copy of the protein and injects it into a tobacco mosaic virus, which carries the protein into the tobacco leaves. After 12 days, the researchers harvest the leaves and extract the mass-produced protein for development into the vaccine.
 
鈥淥ur goal is to optimize the delivery system of the protective agent, which in this case is a gel, and determine its safety and estimates of its efficacy, leading to a first-in-humans clinical trial,鈥?Palmer said.
 
鈥淧eople may question why a cancer program is conducting research into HIV prevention,鈥?said Donald Miller, M.D., Ph.D., director of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center, a part of KentuckyOne Health. 鈥淚n fact, cancer can be a result of every major disease that we know about, and HIV infection is no exception.鈥?br>
 
Overall, the grant contains three significant [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] projects 鈥?The Critical Path Project; Preclinical Testing Project; and Clinical Trial Project.
 
The critical path project involves manufacturing the microbicide active ingredient, ensuring quality of the microbicide and the formulated gel product and production for actual use. This process is in collaboration with two Owensboro-based biotechnology companies (Kentucky Bioprocessing Inc. and Intrucept Biomedicine LLC), and Lisa Rohan at the University of Pittsburgh, and Magee-Women鈥檚 Research Institute. Rohan has significant experience developing delivery systems for similar medications.
 
The preclinical testing project is a collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta to use an animal model to ensure that the vaccine is safe and to determine that it actually provides protection from infection.
 
The clinical trial project involves developing the application to conduct a clinical trial for the Food and Drug Administration, as well as conducting the first-in-humans testing.
 
Note: Palmer is one of the founders and principal partners in Intrucept Biomedicine LLC.

HOUSTON (August 5, 2014) The U.S. Securities and [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] Exchange Commission says it has determined that Houston American Energy Corp. misled investors by making fraudulent claims about its oil reserves.
The SEC announced Monday that the oil and gas copmany and its CEO, John F. Terwilliger, claimed that a Colombian exploration venture yielded between 1 billion and 4 billion barrels of oil reserves, but the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] SEC says the estimates "lacked any reasonable basis."
SEC officials say false claims made by the company in 2009 and 2010 allowed it to raise about $13 million in a public offering and saw its stock price increase from $5 per share [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] to $20.
Houston American now trades for about 40 cents per share.

The sales number is absolutely astounding, especially since this is not a sequel, and what makes it even more impressive is that it's based on characters that are not household names, Gitesh Pandya, editor of Box Office Guru, said.
Advertisement
It's a combination of a very strong brand for Marvel, the built-in audience of comic-book fans who know these characters and also the factor that they really made a really good film.
Sales at Imax theatres totalled $17 million, the best-ever for an August opening. Rentrak said the movie is the third-biggest debut for this year.
Unlike Iron Man, Spider-Man, X-Men and The Avengers, the Guardians come from more-distant reaches of the Marvel archive and stay truer to the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url] comic-book publisher's edgier early days, said Kenneth Turan, film critic for the Los Angeles Times.
Blessed with a loose, anarchic B-picture soul that encourages you to enjoy yourself even when you're not quite sure what's going on, the scruffy Guardians is irreverent in a way that can bring the first Star Wars to mind, he wrote.
Guardians stars Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, an American pilot who becomes the target of a unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by the super-villain Ronan, played by Lee Pace.
Quill joins with four misfits and, after discovering the true power of the orb, he leads an effort to save the galaxy. The film co-stars Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, along with the voices [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
Guardians garnered a 92 per cent favorable rating from critics at Rottentomatoes.com, a website that distills reviews into a single number, and had a 96 percent positive rating with fans. 
Get On Up, from Comcast's Universal Pictures, features Chadwick Boseman as the late singer James Brown, known as the Godfather of Soul and The Hardest Working Man in Show Business. Boseman garnered notices playing baseball great Jackie Robinson in the 2013 film 42.
The new film chronicles Brown's rise from extreme poverty to become one of the most influential musicians in history, and was directed by Tate Taylor, whose credits include the Civil Rights-era film The Help. Nelsan Ellis, Dan Aykroyd, Viola Davis, Lennie James and Octavia Spencer co-star.
Among returning films, Luc Besson's thriller Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson, pulled in $18 million in its second week of release for Universal to place second. BoxOffice.com had forecast revenue of $17.5 million.
Johansson, in the title role, plays a drug mule who accidentally ingests a hormone that frees her from mental and physical limitations, allowing her to exact revenge on her tormentors.
Lucy joins a number of smaller-budget movies that have done well this summer, such as Neighbors and 22 Jump Street. The film was made for $40 million, according to Box Office Mojo.

UPDATE:
One US soldier was killed and 15 more were wounded Tuesday when a man in Afghan military uniform opened fire at an officer academy in Kabul, a US official said.聽
The New York Times reports:
US Army major general was highest-ranking member of American military to die in hostilities in :
鈥?New York Times World (@nytimesworld)
The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that some of the injuries were serious as the gunman shot at fairly close range.
A man in Afghan military uniform opened fire on NATO troops at a -run officer academy in Kabul on Tuesday, officials said, wounding three Afghans as details of foreign casualties remain unclear.
"We are investigating, but it appears that an Afghan army officer opened fire," General Mohammed Afzal Aman, the chief of staff for operations at the Afghan Ministry of Defense, told AFP.
"Three of our officers have been injured. ISAF (International Security Assistance Force) troops have also suffered casualties."
"ISAF have quarantined the site, allowing nobody, including Afghan forces, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] to approach."
NATO's International Security Assistance Force said in a statement: "We can confirm that an incident occurred involving local Afghan and ISAF troops at Camp Qargha."
As details of the incident remained scarce, defense ministry spokesman Mohammad Zahir Azimi described the attacker as "a terrorist" 鈥?suggesting he may have infiltrated Afghan forces.
"A terrorist wearing Afghan army uniform opened fire at national army officers and their foreign colleagues and wounded several people," Azimi said on Twitter.
"The ministry of defence strongly condemns this attack. The attacker was killed by the Afghan army."
Western officials say that most so-called "insider attacks" stem from personal grudges and cultural misunderstandings rather than Taliban insurgent plots.
Incidents in [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] which Afghan soldiers turn their guns on their allies have killed scores of US-led troops in recent years, breeding fierce mistrust and forcing joint patrols to be protected by armed guards known as "guardian angels."
But the shootings dropped rapidly last year as ISAF troops closed many bases and reduced combat operations before the end of their mission in December.
"We are aware of reports of an incident at Qargha," the British ministry of defence said in a statement issued from London.
"The incident is under investigation and it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."
Academy for Afghan elite聽
The Afghan National Army Officer Academy was hit by another "insider attack" last year when an Afghan soldier shot and wounded two NATO coalition troops over a dispute before being killed.
The academy is a flagship training facility that opened in October to produce a new generation of professional military leaders as US-led NATO troops end their war and the Afghan army takes on the Taliban insurgents.
Overseen by British mentors, the academy is loosely modelled on Sandhurst, the renowned British officer training school.
The Afghan military has been built from scratch since the fall of the Taliban regime in 2001, and it has struggled with high casualty [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] rates, "insider attack" killings, mass desertions and equipment shortages.
In February this year, two Afghan men wearing military uniforms shot dead two US soldiers in the eastern province of Kapisa.
Also on Tuesday, Afghan officials accused an ISAF air strike of killing four civilians in the western province of Herat.
"After rockets were fired at Shindand airbase, an aircraft carried out strikes on the area where they were launched," Herat's deputy governor Asiludin Jami told AFP.
"A man, a woman, a kid and a teenager were killed. They were all civilians."
ISAF said it took all allegations of civilian casualties seriously, and was assessing the facts surrounding this incident.

Campbell police released a sketch Monday of a man who robbed a woman before shooting a couple in a holdup attempt minutes later.
Officers responded to reports of gunfire shortly before 12:30 a.m. Sunday and found a 31-year-old man and his 22-year-old girlfriend suffering from numerous gunshot wounds in the parking lot of the First Bank at 790 E. Campbell Ave., said Campbell police Sgt. Gary Berg.
The two were taken to a hospital and were expected [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] to survive.
As officers were investigating the shooting, they were notified about a robbery that occurred about 10 minutes earlier at Second Street [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] and Civic Center Drive in the city鈥檚 downtown, about a half-mile away. In that incident, a man robbed a 25-year-old woman at gunpoint, Berg said. She was not physically hurt.
Officers determined that the same man was responsible for both the shooting and the earlier robbery, Berg said.
Police released a sketch of the assailant. He is described as a Latino man in his 20s to early 30s, 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 10 inches tall, thin to medium build, with dark hair. One witness reported that he may have [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/url] been wearing a hat with long hair coming out from underneath. Police said it wasn鈥檛 clear if it was a disguise.
Anyone with information regarding either incident is asked to contact the Campbell Police Department at (408) 866-2101. Those wishing to remain anonymous may contact Silicon Valley Crime Stoppers at (408) 947-STOP.

Pat Flynn of Tacoma is known as the mother of Relay For Life, which means most people know Dr. Gordon Klatt as the father of the event.But Flynn says that doesn t do him justice. He was way more than that ... she said. There is only one founder in the world of Relay For Life, and that is Gordy Klatt. Gordy Klatt, she said, changed the face of the fight against cancer forever. The Tacoma surgeon died at age 71 Sunday, his family said, following a recent struggle with a heart condition.In 1985, Klatt single-handedly changed the way the American Cancer Society raises funds by combining his passion for running with his passion for fighting against cancer. Klatt ran more [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] than 83 miles around the track at University of Puget Sound for 24 hours and raised $27,000 in tribute to a young man who died of the disease.The next year, 220 people on 19 teams joined him, and a worldwide phenomenon was born. In 1994, it became the American Cancer Society s signature event. Today, the Relay For Life is held in 23 countries and has raised nearly $5 billion. He s not going to be forgotten because he s the guy who started the Relay, said Harvey Rosen, who knew Klatt for decades. It s not even a local legacy, it s a worldwide legacy. Every time there s a Relay, he s going to be remembered. Flynn remembers her first glimpse of that legacy. And it was literally a glimpse.The gates to the UPS track were locked when she went to try to watch Klatt that first year. She knew him because she was a patient at his medical practice, and she peeked through the bars twice during the 24 hours to make sure [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] he was OK.It was while he was running on that track that he envisioned the team event, she said.A couple months later, he asked her to join the six-person committee to organize the first team event the next year. Neither of us ever dreamed that in 30 years it would raise $5 billion, Flynn said. He was always the vision, and I was the details person. Flying to put on a workshop for Relay in the early years, she said Klatt made some projection about how much they would raise in a certain number of years. I just looked at him and said: In your dreams, she remembered.Whatever it was, they far surpassed it.A Tacoma monument honoring Klatt and commemorating the start of Relay For Life is in the works. A committee headed by Rosen has raised nearly $115,000 to buy a sculpture honoring Klatt and a marker to tell the story of how the Relay came to be. The location has not yet been determined. Klatt himself was diagnosed with stomach cancer in March 2012. The guy was a battler right til the end, Rosen said. Whatever hospital he might have been in, the staff would ask him for his opinion because he knew more than some of these inexperienced [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton[/url] doctors and nurses. Klatt was a surgeon in Tacoma for 40 years. He spent three years as an Army surgeon and then went back to school to become a colorectal specialist. Klatt continued to run the relay until he had knee surgery in 1995, according to his wife of 23 years, Lou Klatt. He was a very kind, good-hearted, giving person, she said. He really cared about his patients. They were number one. He loved marathons, dancing, and playing the accordion and the piano. Klatt learned to play the accordion when he was 5 and continued to play until the end, although he had trouble lifting the 40-pound instrument.He s survived by his wife; three children from a previous marriage, Julie Sullivan, Lisa Steudel and David Klatt; five grandchildren; sister Kathy and brother Don. My grandchildren will see a day when there is no cancer, Klatt once predicted. Sullivan remembers him as a fun dad who drove the high school carpool, loved music and liked travel and photography.David Klatt said he and his dad enjoyed Husky football and Seattle Supersonics games together as season ticket holders.The family had their own relay team in the early years of the event, they said.The American Cancer Society did not wish to comment Monday, saying they would release a statement at a more appropriate time.

The search giant informed the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children after detecting three allegedly pornographic images of children in Skillern s email. The Center then alerted the police, which in turn used the information to get a warrant. According to the police, the raid yielded more than [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] what Google knew was there.

The man is currently being held on a $200,000 bond.
Google has been fighting against online child sexual abuse since 2006. The search giant has already made it harder to find child porn content, images and videos, via its search engine, and now its clear that the company is actively monitoring emails, too.
Back in April, the company to [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] clearly reflect that its automated systems analyze user content (including emails) to provide features such as customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection.

However, the currency drifted back to around US93.23 towards the end of trade, up just a tenth of a cent for the day.
Australian retail sales showed the first significant growth in two months as consumers began to shake off the tough federal budget and the weather finally turned cold.
Advertisement
Retail sales rose 0.6 per cent in June, on a seasonally adjusted basis, the biggest jump since January.
The weather-related bounce was evident in the recovery in clothing, footwear and personal accessories, St George chief economist Besa Deda said.
This [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/milticolor-monogramme-ceinture-25]Milticolor monogramme ceinture[/url] category rose 1.4 per cent in June, after four consecutive monthly falls.
The improvement in household spending is a positive sign for the local economy, but analysts warned that one month s data does not mean Australian consumers are back in droves.
The Australian dollar should have done better given the positive retail sales figures, Westpac chief currency strategist Robert Rennie said.
If there was a list of risks for the Australian economy, one was that the consumer had really gone back into hibernation as a result of the budget; it looks less likely in the data that we got today, yet the Australian dollar couldn t rally, Mr Rennie said.
Continued strengthening of the US economy and growing expectations that [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/trunks-et-sacs-damier-ceinture-28]Trunks et sacs Damier ceinture[/url] the US Fed will begin to raise interest rates once it completes tapering its bond-buying program have helped the US dollar remain strong against its Australian counterpart.
With the combination of second quarter [US] GDP and the better-than-expected [manufacturing data] there s a sense that we re not quite there yet, but we re probably on the cusp of an improvement in the manufacturing job situation in the US, Mr Rennie said.
I think there is an increasing confidence that as we move through this year, the debate within the Fed as to what to do once they finish the taper is going to become louder and stronger and that s something that financial markets will latch onto quite quickly.
The improvement in the US economy will come as music to the ears of Reserve Bank of Australia Governor Glenn Stevens.
The stubbornly [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/chaussures-louis-vuitton-33]Chaussures Louis Vuitton[/url] strong Australian dollar has long been the bane of the RBA s monetary policy.
As the US economy strengthens, the Australian dollar will weaken, meaning the RBA may be able to avoid cutting rates to ease the currency.
The central bank is expected to leave the cash rate on hold on Tuesday, continuing the period of interest rate stability. The majority of economists forecast the RBA to hold rates steady for the rest of 2014.
On Thursday, unemployment data comes in as the next big gauge of the Australian economy that could play on the dollar. A poor reading on employment could push back any time-line for a rate rise from the RBA which would hurt the local currency.

View gallery.Usain Bolt (Pic: @JakeyQPR)Usain Bolt and his team-mates on the Jamaican 4x100m relay team charmed the whole of Glasgow as they waved, grinned, kissed, cuddled and - most importantly - posed for selfies with fans after winning the gold medal on Saturday night.But one fan's once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to nab a picture with the most famous athlete on the planet backfired in spectacularly miserable fashion.Jake Spencer was among the crowd in the front at Hampden Park, and was [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] thrilled when Bolt stopped to pose with him for a snap.Unable to believe his luck, Spencer grabbed his phone and snapped away as the superstar world record holder leaned back into the crowd next to Jake to let him record the moment for posterity.After the snap was taken Bolt trotted away, leaving Jake to look at his phone... at which point, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] this is the view that greeted him.View gallery.Pic: @JakeyQPRYes, Jake managed the amazing feat of having the wrong camera selected on his phone - meaning that instead of pointing at him and Bolt, he grabbed a blurry, empty photo of a few yards of Glaswegian running track.We know what you're thinking. We were thinking it too: surely this could have been anyone at any time, trackside at the Commonwealth Games, claiming to in the manner of one of those "Edinburgh at Night" postcards. After all, surely Jake would have seen on his phone's screen that he had the wrong camera selected?But there are enough other pics of Bolt posted by Jake that it's clear that he was there. So this definitely seems legitimate.And, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] therefore, funny and heartbreaking in equal measure.Okay, so that's not true. It's not heartbreaking at all. Just funny. Except for Jake.Photo I took of Usain Bolt

While smart locks are still a niche market, the use of smartphones for payments is growing exponentially. Since December last year, Commonwealth Bank has seen 1.4 million transactions [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-corners-towel-scarf-38]Louis Vuitton Corners Towel Scarf[/url] by customers using smartphones.鈥淲hile there may always be a need for different payment methods, such as cash for emergencies and cards for travel, it鈥檚 clear the mobile wallet is set to become a part of many Australians鈥?everyday lives,鈥?said Angus Sullivan, executive general manager of cards and payments at Commonwealth Bank.Commonwealth Bank customers with an iPhone or Android smartphone can attach a PayTag smart sticker to the back of their device and use it for transactions of up to $100 at stores with PayPass terminals.Those with a Samsung Galaxy S4 don鈥檛 need the sticker, as the necessary technology is built into the phone. The same function will soon be available on the Galaxy S5, and according to Sullivan, the bank is planning more links with Android devices. Commonwealth Bank also offers a unique Cardless Cash service that lets customers withdraw up to $200 a day from more than 3000 CommBank ATMs nationwide using the CommBank app.Another Aussie bank making strides in the mobile payment space is Westpac.  Last month, it launched a service similar to the Commonwealth Bank鈥檚 that enables customers to use the NFC technology built into the Samsung Galaxy S4, S5 [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/ceinture-louis-vuitton-17]Ceinture Louis Vuitton[/url] or Note 3 to tap and pay securely at contactless terminals.PayPal also offers options for paying through your smartphone. At more than 5000 locations in Australia, including Guzman Y Gomez, Glue Store and Sonoma Bakery, you can check in to the store using the PayPal app and pay using the credit or debit card that鈥檚 linked to your PayPal account. You can also avoid queues at participating cafes by ordering food and refreshments before you get there.As convenient as all of this technology is, it does raise the stakes if your smartphone gets lost or stolen. Michael McKinnon, security adviser at online security company AVG, said that while the risks of losing money through fraud  are borne mostly by the banks with money-back guarantees, the real risk is increased theft of devices.鈥淚f you pull your mobile phone out of your pocket and wave it past the reader, then it鈥檚 pretty clear to a person watching that this is how you鈥檙e making the payment. Suddenly, your smartphone becomes the target for potential theft,鈥?said McKinnon. 鈥淚t鈥檚 the same risk as for PayPass credit cards: crooks know that [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/anagramme-ceinture-19]Anagramme ceinture[/url] if they steal your phone, they can spend up to  $100 without needing your PIN number.鈥漈he flip side is that unlike credit cards or house keys, you can track a smartphone with GPS, lock it, and erase it remotely. Smartphones don鈥檛 display your credit card details, either, preventing thieves from using your credit card online the way they can with a stolen plastic card. Both the Commonwealth and Westpac apps also let you secure the contactless payments feature behind a PIN number.To stay safe while using a smartphone as a replacement for your wallet or keys, the traditional smartphone security measures apply. 鈥淏e discrete about when you鈥檙e making payments, and keep your device with you at all times,鈥?said McKinnon.鈥淯se a PIN number or passcode on your device and mobile payment app, and make sure you鈥檙e using all of the technology available to track your smartphone if it is lost or stolen. And, if you鈥檙e using an Android device, ensure you鈥檙e running some security software to block malicious apps.鈥?

Police: Man charged after slapping state police horse during MusikfestAugust 04, 2014|By Pamela Lehman, Of The Morning CallBethlehem police said they are unsure if bravado or stupidity was the motive behind a man who allegedly twice slapped a state police horse Saturday at Musikfest.After one slap, the trooper warned the man not to do it again, said Bethlehem police Chief Mark DiLuzio. But police said Curtis Gibbs looked the trooper in the eye and slapped the horse a second time."You don't slap a defenseless animal for no reason," DiLuzio said. "Now he's under arrest. So, who has the long face now?"Gibbs, 22, of the 200 block of North [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] Fulton Street in Allentown was charged Saturday with disorderly conduct.Police said the incident happened around 9:40 p.m. on Banana Island located near Main and West Lehigh streets, and Gibbs was only charged after he was "repeatedly told not to" touch Trooper Joe Bushta's mount named Jeffrey.DiLuzio said police are still unsure why Gibbs slapped the horse."We aren't sure if he was doing it to be funny, but he was definitely being ignorant," DiLuzio said.Gibbs could not be reached for comment. Police said after the slaps, Gibbs was handcuffed and given the citation.During the 10-day festival, the Musikfest grounds are patrolled by mounted units with Bethlehem, Lancaster and state police.In 2009, a Bethlehem Township man was charged after police said he shoved a state police horse during Musikfest. Andrew Mutchler had been charged with taunting a police animal for shoving Cpl. Michael Funk's horse Flash as it passed [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Sistina[/url] in the 400 block of Main Street.Although prosecutors said the charge against Mutchler was appropriate to protect police animals patrolling during large crowds, a Northampton County judge dismissed the case.Mutchler's attorney argued his client shoved the horse after it had stepped on Mutchler's foot, causing him to react instinctively.DiLuzio said Monday that Gibbs' alleged actions did not rise to the level of taunting a police animal and said the open-handed slap would be classified [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] more as a harassment than a felony charge."For whatever reason, people always seem to go after the police horses every Musikfest," DiLuzio said. "Our advice is don't come to Musikfest and be an idiot, or expect to be arrested."Twitter @pamelalehman610-820-6790Featured ArticlesMore:Related LinksRelated ArticlesApril 13, 2010April 14, 2010August 4, 2009October 27, 2009Find More Stories About|||Please note the green-lined linked article text has been applied commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

For the fourth quarter ended March 31, 2014, a net loss of $1,504,306, or $0.65 per basic and diluted share, on sales of $2,636,933. This compares to net income of $104,973, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, on sales of $4,113,976 for [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] the comparable period of the previous year.
For the 12 months ended March 31, 2014, sales decreased approximately 18% to $12,577,127 versus $15,383,877 for the same period last year. The Company reported a net loss of $4,450,244, or $1.94 per basic and diluted share, versus a net loss of $452,561, or $0.20 per basic and diluted share, for the same period last year.
"For the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014 our operations were impacted by lower sales, a non-cash charge to fully reserve our deferred tax asset in the amount of $2,310,835, and the Company's portion of lower joint venture earnings that decreased by $882,774 from the prior year," said Harvey Grossblatt, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While sales were lower throughout the year, we believe that our fourth quarter sales were further adversely affected by weather which further reduced sales to our retail and new construction customers.
Mr. Grossblatt noted that "The smoke and CO alarm markets are moving toward ten-year sealed alarms to comply [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] with new laws passed in several states, including California and New York. We previewed eleven (11) new sealed smoke and CO alarms at the International Hardware Show in Las Vegas in May, 2014 and our customers' responses were very positive. The first two sealed models will be available during the September quarter and the complete line should be available for sale before the end of our 2015 fiscal year. We believe that with the addition of our new sealed battery product line later this fiscal year, sales will improve and the Company can thereafter begin to return to profitability."

The food at Kong is Korean-ish with a sub-major in Japanese-ish. It lays no claims to authenticity but wallows liberally in the current fetish flavours of kimchi and all things fermented, dashi and ponzu and - erm - peanut butter. The barbecue peanut butter wings with gochujang - fermented red chilli paste - might sound like a parody but they taste far better, although the record ought to note the peanut [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/milticolor-monogramme-ceinture-25]Milticolor monogramme ceinture[/url] dominates.
The food comes fast, each dish on top of the last, a reminder that the kitchen is aware of the impatient crowd baying for admission. Flavours are supercharged, as if to compete with the din, although they skew sweet rather than hot. The cloying profile of Kewpie mayo, street food's simpering accomplice, pops up in an overpriced $24 dish of ragged kingfish sashimi - offcuts, maybe? - with jalapenos and gochujang, and again dousing a ''spicy'' cabbage slaw, which it isn't.
I suspect the kimchi stew, a red swamp of cabbage and beef intercostal, is the sort of thing every Korean will have a different opinion on, depending on how their mother cooked it. If I had a Korean mother, I'd ask her to go harder on the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/trunks-et-sacs-damier-ceinture-28]Trunks et sacs Damier ceinture[/url] backbone of salt and chilli fire. Like I said, heat isn't such a thing here, although the pork ribs slathered in a piquant chilli tomato sauce give a good slow burn. They're the must-order: smoky, tender and messy. You really must order the pickles as well. Use them indiscriminately.
The dumplings, slippery crescents stuffed with minced beef and oily kimchi and dressed in a light, clean vinegar, are also excellent - a lovely diplomatic union between Korea and Japan. And you can blame not Kong but an entire nation for their strange ways with beef tartare, the add-ins of pinenuts and smoked dashi salt plus a mayo-like cloud of eggy soy making palate-slapping sense.
There's almost nothing recognisably Korean about the fried soft-shell crab - practically all batter - in a steamed bun. On the other hand, the fried rice cracker with smashed edamame, walnut ssamjang and sticky sweet soy is probably too Korean - that is, one of those dishes that doesn't translate to a local audience.
What does translate here at Kong is the energy [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/chaussures-louis-vuitton-33]Chaussures Louis Vuitton[/url] (off the charts), the pop art (pandas - so kawaii), the cool waiters (occasionally too cool for school, which only adds to their peer-group cachet) and the rollicking drinks list with wine jugs and sake cocktails. Chris Lucas' genius is knowing his target crowd is hungry for more than just smoked brisket and pulled pork. And at Kong he's nailed just how to serve it up to them.

About 50 volunteers turned out Saturday morning to help construct new playground toys at Rainier Elementary School.But the nearly $30,000 set [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] couldn t have happened if it wasn t for an outpouring of community support and a lot of work and persistence of 11-year-old student Faith Boesch, according to Rainier School District Superintendent Tim Garchow. Faith came to me and said, What can we do about a new playground?   Garchow recalled. I said, Well, we don t have it in the budget.   So that s when Faith and her mom, Ida, decided to make it happen on their own.They wrote grant applications, organized coin drives, tapped businesses and churches for donations, and set up other fundraisers.They even sent a video asking television host Ellen DeGeneres for support.The Hollywood A-lister didn t respond to their request, but folks who live in the small community in southeast Thurston County certainly did. Everyone stepped up, Ida Boesch said. It s just a tremendous [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] effort of the community, Garchow added. Everyone s gotten behind it. Volunteers from Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the Rainier City Council and the school district joined others in digging holes, raking rocks, securing posts and building the playground set, which is accessible to disabled students and features several elements for kids to climb, bounce and play on.The new set is much larger than the school s wooden set, and features toys that are geared toward older kids. I want to try everything, said 8-year-old Matthew [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Delightful[/url] Kenney, as he took a short break with his twin brother, John, during the work party.Their grandma Terri Rendahl predicts that the playground will be an instant hit and get plenty of use even when school isn t in session. It s amazing what one little girl s dream turned into, Rendahl said.

() 鈥?The European Central Bank is expected to leave monetary policy unchanged this week, but President Mario Draghi likely will reiterate to markets that policy-makers remain ready to undertake more monetary accommodation if necessary, analysts said.
The ECB is scheduled to meet on Thursday.
Eurozone inflation fell in July to 0.4% year-on-year, the lowest level since October 2009, and is well below the ECB鈥檚 target rate of 2%. ECB officials have suggested in the past that a rate below 1% poses a risk of deflation.
Still, ECB policy-makers are expected to stay on hold as they continue to monitor the impact of monetary accommodation measures announced in June. Back then, the ECB cut interest rates and said it would conduct targeted longer-term refinancing operations aimed at improving bank lending.
鈥淚 am expecting absolutely nothing,鈥?said Christopher Vecchio, currency analyst at DailyFX. 鈥淭his is a weird in-between meeting where the ECB is still conducting it stress tests (on banks) and collecting data from those results. There has simply not been enough time passed since the June measures to say whether or not the accelerated pace of easing has had the wanted [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/bagages-louis-vuitton-48]Bagages Louis Vuitton[/url] or desired effects.鈥?
Mark McCormick, forex strategist with Cr dit Agricole, described the ECB meeting as a 鈥渢ransitional鈥?one.
鈥淭hey introduced new policy measures a few months ago,鈥?he said. 鈥淭he targeted LTRO won鈥檛 start until September. So now, they鈥檙e trying to see the response to the new policy actions they put in place. They鈥檙e really in wait-and-see mode.鈥?
He sees potential downside for the euro if Draghi should suggest there are still more downside risks to inflation. 鈥淚 think they鈥檒l remain pretty assertive about their accommodative stance,鈥?McCormick said. This could provide some headwinds for the euro, especially with the Federal Reserve continuing to taper its bond-buying program known as [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-louis-vuitton-50]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] quantitative easing, McCormick added.
Vecchio and analysts at Barclays also look for Draghi to continue sounding a dovish tone.
鈥淲hile we and the market do not expect any change in policy, ECB President Mario Draghi is likely to reaffirm the central bank鈥檚 commitment to using extraordinary policy measures to ease monetary conditions, including the prospect of ABS (asset-backed securities) purchases, and address very low euro area inflation,鈥?Barclays said in a research note. 鈥淲e look for further information regarding the implementation of those measures in the press conference, particularly after data last week showed inflation had declined to 0.4% y/y in July and is likely to reach a cyclical low of 0.3% y/y in August and September.鈥?
Related Stories:



If Draghi does not come off as still dovish, Vecchio added, the could rally as positioning is 鈥減retty one-sided.鈥?The net-short position in euro futures contracts for the large non-commercial accounts 鈥?according to weekly data from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission鈥攊s at the highest level since [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/court-portefeuilles-74]Court Portefeuilles[/url] August 2012, he said.
Otherwise, the meeting is likely to be a non-event for the euro, he said. Likewise, Vecchio does not anticipate a big move in as a result of the ECB meeting, especially with as-expected outcome.
鈥淭hat being said, August has been a strong month for gold the last several years on a seasonal basis,鈥?Vecchio said. This is when physical buying often starts picking up ahead of a number of holidays around the globe in autumn and ahead of the Christmas holiday in Western nations.
鈥淎nd, with all of the geopolitical tensions flaring around the world, it鈥檚 hard to imagine that gold is going to take a significant hit in the near term,鈥?he added.

Experience Florida鈥檚 wildlife the way it was meant to be enjoyed in the many natural habitats found throughout the Tampa area. A dolphin cruise takes families out into the waters surrounding the Tampa area into the Gulf of Mexico. However, many of these tours go out seeking more than just dolphins. Some tours take you deep into the Bay searching for manatees, birds and other wildlife that have made Florida their home.
Let鈥檚 take a look at some of the best dolphin cruises available for families in the Tampa area:
Captain Memo鈥檚 Original Pirate Cruise

Families will have a chance to explore the waters of the area in search of dolphins, bald eagles, egrets, manatees and all of the other Florida wildlife found in the bay. The best part about Dolphin Quest is that you are guaranteed to see dolphins or your next trip with them is absolutely free. Tours depart four times a day taking guests on 90-minute tours of the area.
Dolphin Watch Nature Sightseeing Cruise

Dolphin Watch Trip

You will have a 99 percent chance of seeing dolphins when you take the famous Dolphin Watch Trip out of Dolphin Landings Charter Boat Center. This cruise takes families out into Boca Ciega Bay where there are more than 700 identified dolphins swimming in the waters, thus making it near impossible to not see a dolphin during the cruise. On average, two to three trips depart from the boat center daily, offering plenty of chances to see some of Florida鈥檚 most famous wildlife. While onboard, guests are treated to free sodas and bottled water. Plus, there is a cooler with ice to store the alcoholic beverages you bring on board with you. Trips usually last two hours.

SEATTLE Twenty minutes after he won the race, J. Michael Kelly found out he won the race.The Bonney Lake native drove the 1 Graham Trucking to a win in [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] the championship heat of the Albert Lee Appliance Cup at Seafair on Sunday. Kelly had to wait it out, though, as race officials reviewed the last lap. The Graham Trucking team stood on the edge of the water on Lake Washington, sweating out the result. This was brutal, Graham Trucking owner Rob Graham said. We knew he was clean. We were trying to figure out what they were even looking at. At issue was the final lap of the five-lap final. Kelly established inside position on Jimmy Shane and the Oberto hydroplane in the pre-race jockeying. Shane's boat had more speed; racing on the outside of the Oberto wasn t an option. We drew it up and knew where we needed to be on that mark, and it just happened to work out the exact way we drew it up, Kelly said.For the first first four laps, Kelly came around the north turn and pushed Shane farther and farther outside, making his route around the Ted Porter race course even longer.On the fifth lap, when Kelly started pushing him outside, Shane tried to cut inside and use that lane to gain on him.But Kelly cut back inside, cutting off Shane, who lost part of a wing on Kelly s rooster tail. That s what officials were reviewing. But Kelly was determined to have the regulation seven boat lengths on Shane before he cut in.Shane wasn t so sure, but he didn't offer too much protest. I think it was a show for the fans, said Shane, offering what might not have been the [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] most genuine smile in the world. It was a great race. While Shane and Kelly kept pushing outside, Jon Zimmerman in the 9 Les Schwab Tires-Team RedDOT took the inside lane and started making up water. It opened up a mile inside, said Zimmerman, who also won Heat 3A on Sunday.He caught up to Shane, and then we turned our sights on the red boat (Graham), Zimmerman said.Kelly s move inside kept Zimmerman at bay.It gave Kelly his first Seafair win. It was the second straight win for Graham Trucking after Shane drove his boat to a Seafair win en route to the National High Point Championship last year.It s Kelly s second win of the season. He won the season-opening race on July 4 in Madison, Indiana. It also helped cut into Shane s lead in this year s national championship race. I couldn't be happier, Kelly said. It's my hometown race. I got a win in front of my family and friends. PIT STOPSThe 96 Spirit of Qatar had the worst start as Kip Brown flipped his boat on the first lap of the first heat of the day (2A). Brown [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] was not injured. The flip and the restart pushed the schedule back. Heat 3A and 3B were pushed back two hours to get in all the air show acts that were stacked up. The final was also pushed back 30 minutes to 5:15 p.m. Taking the 96 out of play also meant there weren t enough boats to run a provisional heat (a last-chance heat to make the finals).

Sur les parquets, LeBron James est le leader incontest茅 de son 茅quipe. Il en est sa seule locomotive. L 茅quipe joue pour lui et lui m锚me magnifie ses co茅quipiers plus que quiconque. Mais c est bien en dehors des parquets que LeBron gagne ses galons de leader incontest茅. Un leader moral cette fois, qui transforme le meilleur joueur NBA de la d茅cennie en plus grand basketteur de l histoire.
 
D abord, laissez-moi vous raconter une petite histoire. En 1990, Harvey Gantt, le candidat noir et progressiste 脿 la municipalit茅 de Charlotte, avait demand茅 脿 Michael Jordan de le soutenir face 脿 son [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] adversaire politique Jesse Helms, connu pour son id茅ologie raciste. His Airness s 茅tait alors abstenu de prendre position politiquement (comme beaucoup d autres, ) pour la simple raison que les r茅publicains ach猫tent, eux aussi, des sneakers . Jordan s 茅tait 茅cras茅 sans v茅ritables cons茅quences sur sa l茅gende (Twitter n existait pas 脿 l 茅poque).
 
Alors, lorsque l affaire Donald Sterling a 茅branl茅 la NBA, LeBron a su prendre la mesure du poids qui pesait sur les 茅paules des joueurs. Il a su saisir l opportunit茅 qui se pr茅sentait 脿 lui pour prendre le contr么le de la ligue, en affirmant se tenir pr锚t 脿 boycotter la saison NBA si le propri茅taire naus茅abond demeurait 脿 la t锚te des Clippers. M锚me si il a depuis pris ses [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] distances vis-脿-vis de cette d茅claration, l histoire retiendra que ce jour l脿, James est devenu le King. Le joueur au dessus de la m锚l茅e capable d exprimer tout haut ce que tous pensaient tout bas.
 
脢tre tax茅 de meilleur joueur de tous [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] les temps n茅cessite d 茅lever sa personne au del脿 de sa seule dimension sportive. LeBron a su rappeler 脿 tout le monde qu un grand pouvoir implique de grandes responsabilit茅s . Il a pris les siennes dans l affaire Sterling au contraire des autres. Une porte s 茅tait ouverte dans le c艙ur des fans et l histoire du basket. LeBron a su y caler son pied pour qu elle ne se referme plus jamais...

Except For The Twins. They're Tainted.
In a surprising move considering [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/bagages-louis-vuitton-48]Bagages Louis Vuitton[/url] s eyes see all, and in the darkness, all see Kate, one of her nannies has escaped the compound and is talking to the media about just how anal a shrill mother of eight kids can be. As for how the nanny escaped, I d assume by using the children to dig a series of intricate tunnels not unlike the Viet Cong. And if that seems racist, I m not the one who shoved them out of my vagina for that exact purpose. Take it up with their mother. E! News reports:
We always had to because it listed her pet peeves, the nanny told E! News in a recent interview. You couldn t put anything on the ground. You had to put shoes in a certain spot. You couldn t close doors loudly. You could only vacuum during certain times of the day if she was home.
On top of never put things on the floor in a house full of eight children, the nannies were also encouraged to eavesdrop on the kids phone calls with which seems risky considering one of them might be seduced by [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-louis-vuitton-50]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] his talk of and betray their master:
When Jon called the kids on the phone, Kate said to us nannies, 鈥榊ou are Kate, so always listen in on the phone calls, she recalled how her former boss would want the nannies to put themselves in her shoes and do as she would.
We always had to keep an ear and eye on what was going on. Kate would say she had no problem with the kids having a relationship with Jon, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/court-portefeuilles-74]Court Portefeuilles[/url] but it always felt like a fa莽ade to me.
As part of becoming Kate, a 47-part ritualistic process full of passive-aggressive Post-It notes and a routine diet of children s tears, the nannies were often encouraged to wear blonde wigs and for days if not weeks at a time. In fact, looking back on it, some of them are pretty sure that s all they ve done since 2012 and can t remember the last time they saw the real Kate. But then who s been barking orders from inside her bedroo- fuck me, a tape recorder.

I was out bass fishing and I saw an unnatural brown. It wasn t pine-needle brown, wasn t dirt brown, Valliere said. I thought, That looks remarkably like a cow s leg. Sure enough, there s [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] a full-size cow laying down.
What he didn t know was the bull had a name, Charlie, and a home, the dooryard of Town Country Foods in Greene, and a family that was searching for him.
We didn t really expect to see it again. We didn t have any idea what happened to it, said Danielle Petersdorf, office manager for Town Country Foods, where the fake steer has been a fixture for 27 years.
The brown and white bovine was stolen from the meat store July 16, and employees feared it was gone for good.
People s kids, when they come, would sit on top of it. People would take pictures with it, Petersdorf said of the popular landmark. My 4-year-old son would always sit on top of it. He would actually say Mommy works at the cow store.
Charlie has been a mainstay at Town Country Foods for decades, after he was first purchased for display by the company s founder, David Bubier, almost 30 years ago. Bubier bought the steer for his wife, who had admired similar ones in front of the recently closed Hilltop Steakhouse in Saugus, Massachusetts. Charlie was actually a brother of those steers: He was made from the same mold as the steakhouse road art.
The stout statue usually stood sentry by the front door of the business, but was moved to the front lawn last month to be painted and made part of a larger display, Petersdorf said.
A week later, Charlie went on the lam.
Workers on the night shift heard noises, but the front of the business isn t lit and they didn t realize what was happening. They only caught a glimpse of a [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] minivan and a pickup.
Although hollow, Charlie is still hefty and would require at least two people and a vehicle to move, Petersdorf said.
There s no indication how the piece of Americana ended up on an island in the river between Lewiston and Auburn, about eight miles downstream from Greene.
They would have to take a boat, Petersdorf said. The cow had holes in the bottom of its feet and they glued and taped up the holes 鈥?that way it wouldn t sink to the bottom.
Valliere, who works at L.L. Bean s returns center in Freeport, was fishing from a kayak when he spotted the out-of-place figure through some trees on the smallest of the three islands in Gulf Island Pond. Covering about an acre or two, the island clearly gets some youthful visitors, based on the campfire and other signs of merriment that Valliere found.
He stood the figure up and clambered on top, he said. He also opted to have his lunch on [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK[/url] the island, in Charlie s company.
Each time I would look over my shoulder at it, I would laugh, he said.
When he got home, he searched the Internet for reports of a stolen plastic steer, and found nothing.
But a few days later, he saw an advertisement in a local newspaper with the words Where s the beef? 鈥?the one-time catchphrase for the Wendy s fast food chain. Town Country Foods had offered a $500 reward for information leading to Charlie s return. The day the ad appeared, the business got two calls in quick succession.
The first was from Valliere. A few minutes later, they heard from Jen Lyson, who was riding an all-terrain vehicle on the shore when she caught sight of Charlie s brown-and-white hide on the island.
The meat store reported the discovery to the Maine State Police, which is responsible for patrolling Greene in July. A Maine game warden brought troopers to the island by boat, and they returned Charlie to the mainland 鈥?taking a number of amusing photographs in the process.
The store hosted a welcome home party for Charlie on Saturday, inviting the public for free hot dogs and the chance to have a picture taken with the newly returned landmark. They also presented Valliere with a gift coupon for $500 in meat or other products from the store; Lyson received a $100 coupon.
We re thrilled, Petersdorf said.

In all the talk of downsides to the Comcast-Time Warner merger, one possible upside has been overlooked: It might be a boon to poor families.
After all, the program (which offers $10-a-month broadband service to those poor families) was created three years ago as a way to gain approval of the Comcast-NBCUniversal from federal regulators. Under that agreement, the program was due to end in June. Instead, Comcast vice president David L. Cohen said Tuesday afternoon that the program is being extended 鈥渋ndefinitely鈥?鈥?and that if the merger with Time Warner is approved, be available to eligible families in 19 of the nation鈥檚 20 most-populated cities.
Why are we doing it?鈥?[url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] Cohen said during a conference call with reporters. 鈥淏ecause it s just that important.


Perhaps. But with federal scrutiny of the proposed merger with Time Warner loom, Tuesday鈥檚 announcement might鈥檝e been more than coincidental. It鈥檚 a fair bet regulators might鈥檝e required Comcast to extend the program anyway.

Cohen didn鈥檛 present Tuesday鈥檚 announcement as a pot-sweetener to federal regulators, though, but as an opportunity for current and potential customers in current Time Warner markets.
"By extending the program and continuing to make commitments, we remain firmly committed to helping low-income families get online at home and take advantage of all the Internet has to offer,鈥?he said.
The results could be a boon to poor families. In addition to announcing the indefinite extension of the Internet Essentials program鈥攖o 鈥渂ridge the digital divide,鈥?he said鈥擟ohen also announced that if they sign up before March 18.
Those cities include Philadelphia; Baltimore; Lee, Fla.; San Francisco; and Stockton, Calif., as well as Adams County, Colo.; Atlanta, Ga.; Aurora, Colo.; Chicago, Ill.; Cicero-Berwyn, Ill.; Collier, Fla.; Denver, Colo.; Elk Grove, Calif.; Fresno, Calif.; Miami, Fla.; Palm Beach, Fla.; Pasadena, Texas; Seattle, Wash.; St. Paul, Minn.; and Tacoma, Wash.
Critics suggest the Internet Essentials program has [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] underperformed 鈥?in Philadelphia, for example, a recent report suggested were using the service. Nationally, Cohen said, 1.2 million Americans in 300,000 households have signed up for the service, though up to 2.6 million Americans meet income standards to participate.
Cohen dismissed the critics. "It's taken us 15 years to get 40 percent penetration (of the potential broadband market) on the entire population,鈥?he said. "The program is only two and a half years old. We're just beginning to get our feet beneath us."
Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter was on the call to praise Cohen鈥檚 announcement, saying that 30 percent of Philadelphians don鈥檛 have home Internet access 鈥?a disadvantage when it comes to doing schoolwork or applying for jobs. 鈥淲e still have more work to do,鈥?Nutter said.
And he unabashedly threw his [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] support behind the merger. "I'm a strong supporter of the Comcast-Time Warner cable merger,鈥?Nutter said. "I have to remind folks I am not on commission at Comcast."
Cohen also said Comcast was on the verge of a 鈥渕ultiyear, multimillion-dollar鈥?partnership with the which produces YouTube videos offering instruction to young students, in range of topics. "We think (those resources) should be available to all families,鈥?Cohen said, 鈥渞egardless of income."

Online anonymity is [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] a beautiful, terrible thing, so naturally governments and law enforcement types are eager to see what happens behind the web's closed doors. Naturally, that includes the folks at the FBI: According to , the FBI has been using "network investigative techniques" -- like highly specific, purpose-built malware -- to help peel back popular anonymizing service Tor's layers of obscurity to catch criminals.

The bureau's efforts began in earnest with an involved child pornography investigation dubbed Operation Torpedo back [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] in 2012. They eventually lucked out by gaining access to a CP site called Pedoboard, arresting the operator, taking over the servers, and delivering malware to visitors who thought they were protected by Tor.
There's no denying that some good has come from the bureau's use of malware, as Wired's Kevin Poulsen points out that more than 12 child porn aficionados are headed to trial as a result. The flip side of that coin is that the FBI's success with Operation Torpedo led to another effort to bypass the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] anonymity that Tor provides... and possibly exposed some innocent people's information to the FBI's eager eyes. With a little Javascript, understanding of Firefox and Tor security issues and a "tiny" Windows program, users of some Tor-hidden services like Tormail (hosted by an outfit called Freedom Hosting, which itself was being investigated for "tolerating" child porn) essentially had their IP addresses unmasked.

Tanks and their crews from around the world descended on Alabino, Russia, to kick off the 2014 Tank Biathlon World Championship Monday. The biathlon is part competition, part show of international co-operation and part show of military might. The biathlon itself [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] is mostly about racing and shooting, much like its Olympic namesake.
聽reported聽the rules are simple: 鈥淐rews must navigate a distance of up to 20 kilometers [12.5 miles] evading various obstacles, crossing rivers and bridges and shoot at a set of targets. Tanks that miss a target get a penalty lap.鈥?
More particularly, said those obstacles include a 鈥渟lalom section, river shallows, a steep hill, a pontoon bridge and an escarpment.鈥?The biathlon runs through Aug. 16 and is separated into three stages of three heats each. Russian aircraft and 鈥渋nfantry combat vehicles鈥?will also make appearances during the course of the biathlon.
Twelve countries are participating: Angola, Armenia, Belarus, [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] China, India, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Russia, Serbia and Venezuela. All but China are using Russian T-72B tanks painted in bright colors to distinguish themselves from their international competitors. Russian crews provided six weeks of training for their international counterparts.
Check out some highlights via RT, or their :

Noticeably absent are any countries in NATO, which pulled out because of Russia鈥檚 alleged involvement in the Ukrainian crisis. NATO officials accuse Russia of aiding and supplying weapons to pro-Russian separatists seeking to break off from the post-Maidan, pro-European government in Kiev. NATO sent observers instead.
Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu founded the competition last year. Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus and Armenia, which are all [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK[/url] part of the Commonwealth of Independent States trade bloc competed. Russia invited the United States, Italy and Germany to this year's competition before their relationship soured.

The Little Red Schoolhouse has a new location for its annual school supply giveaway for Thurston County families in need: Komachin Middle School in Lacey. We are so excited to have Little Red Schoolhouse in our backyard [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy Round[/url] this year as they help so many of our students get off on the right start to school, said North Thurston Public Schools spokeswoman Courtney Schrieve. Many of the committee volunteers are former Komachin teachers. But first, the organization needs donations and volunteers for the event. Donations can be dropped off through Aug. 15 at Heritage Bank locations in Thurston County, and during the organization s Radio Day from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Aug. 15 at the corner of State and Washington in Olympia. Paper, three-ring binders, rulers, crayons and child size scissors are among the most needed items, according to the organization s web site. New or gently used (and washed) winter coats are also needed, according to Judy Kimeldorf, co-chair of the project. It s really hard to come up with 3,500 coats, she said. I m not sure we ll have one for everybody, but we hope to have as many kids outfitted as we can. Debbie Haddock helps coordinate volunteers for the effort. She said it takes several days to set up the event, and a couple hundred volunteers are needed on distribution day. (Anyone who wants to can send an email to volunteer@redschool.org.)Haddock said the project is heartwarming, and worthwhile. The little kids with their new backpacks going out the door some of the smiles, she said. It s just a real blessing to see people get the help they need.

AFL chief Gillon McLachlan, his predecessor Andrew Demetriou, Hird's wife Tania, former Essendon chief Ian Robson, current chairman Paul Little and News Corp journalist Mark Robinson were among those subpoenaed.
Advertisement
Robinson, nicknamed "The Weapon", was stood down on February 5 last year when the Bombers self-reported to the AFL and the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority amid fears players had been administered banned drugs as part of a program run by sports scientist Stephen Dank.
The subpoenas not only relate to the events of that day but even as early as June 1, 2011. February 1 - four days before the major public announcement - has also emerged as a day of interest.
It was revealed last year that Hird and Evans had been briefed on the peptide AOD-9604 in 2012 by the product's Melbourne-based patent holder. David Kenley, chief executive of Metabolic Pharmaceuticals, said in February last year that Evans, a stockbroker, and Hird were addressed as potential investors in the company but the meeting wasn't about treating the club's players. The failed anti-obesity drug last week won supplement approval in the US.
Robinson wants Evans to hand over [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sandals-46]Sandals[/url] documents, emails, text messages or file notes "for the period between 1 June 2011 to 1 June 2013 between you and James Hird, and or you and David Kenley, and or Stephen Dank [or their respective agents], relating to investing in, or investment opportunities, in companies with an interest in peptides or supplements".
Evans and Hird did not take up the option. Evans has not wished to speak publicly about the scandal since he stepped down in July last year.
He has also been ordered to hand over any documents relating to the club's 2012 supplements report, any documents between June, 2012 and December, 2012 relating to the club's decision to not renew Dank's contract and any information he has from January 20, 2013, to February 20, 2013, relating to the club's "use, alleged use or proposed use of peptides, supplements or drugs during the defined period".
Little must also deliver any information he has about the supplements report and the demise of Robinson and Dank.
McLachlan has been ordered to produce any documents or notes taken by himself or the league's integrity chief Brett Clothier relating to the February 5 meeting.
He has also been asked to hand over any notes taken by the AFL integrity unit in relation to former Bombers strength scientist Suki Hobson, who was a good friend of Robinson's, and the club's human resources manager Hailey Grimes. Robinson also wants McLachlan to hand over the AFL integrity unit's investigation into the club's supplements program, beginning with any information from February 1, 2013.
Demetriou has been ordered to deliver any documents relating to Robinson's demise, and also any correspondence from January 1, 2013 to March 1, 2013, between himself and any member of Essendon's board or executive.
Football journalist Mark Robinson has also been hauled into the court battle, having been ordered to hand over any documents, emails, notes, text messages and calendar entries "relating to conferences or meetings attended by you involving James Hird and or his legal advisers". It emerged last week that the Bombers had paid the legal fees of Hird's former senior counsel Tony Nolan to brief Robinson.
While James Hird escaped a subpoena, his wife Tania has been ordered to hand over any documents from February 1 to 14 this year in relation to her television interview on the ABC's 7.30. In that explosive [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sneakers-34]Sneakers Louis Vuitton[/url] interview, she alleges James was told before February 5 that there would be an investigation by ASADA into the club's supplements program. She claimed Demetriou had tipped off Evans about ASADA's investigation into links between drugs in sport and organised crime on February 4 - a point Demetriou has strenuously denied. The Australian Crime Commission cleared Demetriou of any alleged wrong-doing.
The subpoenas must be returned by August 18. Robinson resigned in July last year. The Bombers argue Robinson, who was paid about $320,000 a season, was responsible for the club recruiting Dank something Robinson has denied and for ensuring a safe and legal supplements program. He is suing for almost $2 million, including damages.
Those subpoenaed are:

Andrew Demetriou: Former AFL chief asked to disclose any correspondence between January 1 and March 1, 2013.

Interleague and crosstown rivalry looked like a one sided affair as the Los Angeles Angels easily beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-0 with a strong pitching performance from Garrett Richards, backed up by a Josh Hamilton home run and RBI doubles from Albert Pujols and Mike Trout.
The Angels still don t have the lead in the AL West; it s a rough world to live in with the Oakland [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] A s doing so well. But they re 67-44, looking quite solid at the moment for at least one of the wild card spots, hoping they can turn the rest of the season into something more. The Dodgers are still in pole position after the loss (63-50) when it comes to their two-headed race with the San Francisco Giants in the NL West, but they have only 1.5 games of a lead.
Richards became only the third pitcher in the Angels-Dodgers rivalry to throw a shutout, lasting all nine innings and giving up just five hits and two walks while striking out nine batters, including Matt Kemp three times, Adrian Gonzalez and Dee Gordon twice each. The others to shut out in this rivalry are Aaron Sele in 2002 and Hyun-Jin Ryu last year.
Maybe the best piece of news for the Angles came from Josh Hamilton, hitting his eighth home run of the season as he capped off the win in the sixth inning. It was his third home run over the last seven games, compared to only two home runs in the previous 46 games. The [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] Angels are second in the majors in runs, third in batting average (.264), sixth in OBP and fourth in slugging, using most of their firepower in the first inning.
Zack Greinke isn t used to having duds like this one, but he gave up four runs in the first inning as Albert Pujols and Mike Trout kicked things off with RBI-doubles, followed by a bad throw from Hanley Ramirez allowing Erick Aybar to score and finally David Freese hitting an RBI single to give the Angels a 4-0 lead that lasted them the entire game. Greinke settled down after that yet still picked up his seventh loss of the season, giving up six hits and five runs while striking out five in seven innings.
There was interesting banter between Yasiel Puig and Albert Pujols in the eighth innings, following a finger wagging from Puig at Aybar two innings earlier after Aybar thought about making a tag-up move. Pujols took advantage of Puig showing his lazy side late in the game and聽tagged up from first base. Don Mattingly is probably hoping this [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Delightful[/url] is a learning experience for Puig, and not just something to get angry at.

NEW YORK (August 4, 2014) The blunt conclusion of a two-and-a-half year federal investigation into New York City jails for teenage inmates is that the facilities are extremely violent and unsafe and that major reforms are needed
The investigation of three Rikers Island facilities that hold 16- to 18-year-olds found that the constitutional rights of young inmates are routinely violated, and they are subject to the "rampant use of unnecessary and excessive force" by guards.
Among other findings, the federal lawyers say there is a "deep-seated" culture of violence at Rikers and jail officials too often use solitary confinement, especially for mentally ill inmates.
Mayor Bill de Blasio has vowed to reform the nation's second-largest jail system, with about 11,500 daily inmates.

Everyone is still hunting for quality earnings - but people are still struggling to find genuine industries with some real growth opportunities, Jason Beddow, chief executive of the 68-year old LIC, said.
A lot of businesses have been struggling to grow that top line, and investors and even ourselves are still struggling to look for that genuine growth.
Advertisement
The comments come as investors continue to park their funds in blue chip companies such as the big four banks in search of yield. Official interest rates are at a record low 2.5 per cent - squeezing cash and term deposit returns.
Mr Beddow expects the cash rate to remain unchanged for the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-cosmic-blossom-63]LV Cosmic Blossom[/url] rest of the year.
It s increasingly difficult, he said of the burgeoning frustration of investors across the country.
The comments come after Argo Investments posted a 12 per cent rise in profit to a record $196 million for the year to June.
Investors in the company also pocketed a 7.4 per cent boost in dividend to 14.5 per share, as the company booked a 12 per cent rise in revenue to $210 million [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-mahina-cuir-65]LV Mahina cuir[/url] for the year.
The LIC, which has a market value of $5.1 billion, returned 17.1 per cent for the year compared with the benchmark S P/ASX200 index s 17.4 per cent gains.
Companies such as annuities manager Challenger, property company Lend Lease Group and retail business David Jones are some of the key contributors to Argo's investment returns. Along with software developer TechnologyOne and Macquarie, these companies all saw their share prices soar more than 50 per cent during the year to June.
The portfolio s returns were dragged down by poor performances from Whitehaven Coal, Mermaid Marine Australia, Fleetwood Corporation and iSelect, which made its public debut in June last year.
Argo has no debt and cash reserves of around $195 million.
A feature of the past financial year has been the high [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-toile-monogram-67]LV Toile Monogram[/url] level of initial public offerings. Argo s investment team analysed a large number of opportunities and has established positions in Affinity Education Group, Asaleo Care, Monash IVF Group, Pact Group, Steadfast Group and 3P Learning, Mr Beddow said.
Argo also announced that its long-serving deputy chairman, Robert Rich, will retire in October after 22 years on the board.

ATHENS, Greece Greece's recent efforts to get its public finances into shape could have been the model for recently defaulted Argentina to follow.That's the view of Jean-Claude Juncker, the man who is due to take over the European Union's executive branch in November.After talks with Greek Prime [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] Minister Antonis Samaras in Athens, Juncker said the reforms carried about by the country over the past few years could have served as a model for Argentina, which last week defaulted on its debts for the second time since 2001."Greece could have been a good example for Argentina to avoid the problems it was not able to avoid," Juncker said. "So Greece is not Argentina."In his first trip abroad since being elected to head the European Commission, Juncker praised Greek efforts to improve public finances, and insisted that he played a key role in keeping the country in the euro currency zone."I really fought like a lion, I would say," Juncker said. "There was a great battle to counter those who wanted to remove Greece from the euro."Greece [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] is poised to soon emerge from its savage six-year recession.

DENVER (CBS4) Offensive lineman Orlando Franklin did a good job at right [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] tackle for the Broncos last year, but the team wanted to get bigger, stronger and faster in the middle of their offensive line.
So Franklin is now a left guard.
He wasn t thrilled with the change at first, and even thought it might have to do with what he says was a poor performance in the Super Bowl loss to Seattle, but it s all good now.
It s going well, Franklin said over the weekend. A lot [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] of people don t realize that I played two and a half years at left guard in college. As long as I m on the field it doesn t really matter, so whether it s at right tackle or left guard this year, I m going to be happy to be on the field.
Fellow offensive lineman center Manny Ramirez said the line will be more physical with Franklin at guard.
I think we will, just because we re real big inside and we re going to try to improve on running the ball this year from last year. So that s the plan that s going to be part of it, for us to be more physical.
The Broncos moved Franklin to guard because he s athletic enough to make them a much more formidable group, and Ramirez who [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] has played plenty of guard in his career is a great resource for him.

from Microsoft, MIT and Adobe have technology which turns everyday objects into visual microphones. 
Sounds of any kind, whether it be voices, music or otherwise, create surrounding objects to vibrate. In normal situations, these vibrations are so subtle [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] they appear invisible to the naked eye. The team has developed an algorithm that can analyze these microscopic vibrations from within video clips in order to reproduce the sound that created them. As an example, the team set up a plant in a room with the song Mary Had a Little Lamb playing. By analyzing the vibrations in the plant from the footage, the team is able to reproduce the song in fairly impressive fidelity.
Immediately many may feel the technology seems to be best suited for spying applications. The team also gives another example where it is able to pick up the human voice through a sound proof window from [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] the vibrations on a bag of potato chips.

Other than the disappointing brevity (other than [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?), Derulo's show was very entertaining.
The 15-song concert was loaded with Derulo's hits he even sang two of them twice.
It started with his double-platinum single "In My Head," then his quadruple platinum debut single "Whatcha Say." Both were well done, but Derulo's intricate and energetic dance moves sometimes left him breathless and singing just snippets of the lyrics.
(At least the vocals were live that's more than you can say for many performers today.)
"Stupid Love," with Derulo stationary at a mic stand as a couple danced in front of him, was sung much better. At a lyrical break, he danced, too.
His triple-platinum hit "Ridin' Solo" came just four songs into the show, and again, slowing down the choreography meant his singing was much better. He even hit the high falsetto note at the end, then went into a three-minute [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] breakdown dance routine.
Then came "Marry Me," which even before the proposal was one of the night's best songs. Even better was last year's platinum hit "The Other Side" his singing more sedate. Then he teased the crowd of 3,545 (only slightly larger than the audience at Mayfair in 2010) with a short version of his recent huge hit "Talk Dirty."
"They're not ready for that!" Derulo's DJ who headed a three-man band told him. And so Derulo spent several more minutes dancing.
That in itself may have been astonishing: The 24-year-old Derulo said he had a broken rib, and his DJ said he wasn't supposed to perform, but didn't want to cancel.
"Breathing" finished with another three-minute dance break, and "Don't Wanna Go Home" also was stretched by yet another dance break. And for a repeat of "The Other Side," Derulo, who had started the night in a leather jacket, stripped bare-chested for another dance break that lasted three minutes.
"Does Bethlehem know how to wiggle?" Derulo said before launching into his current hit "Wiggle." Sweaty, with the old chains around his neck swinging, Derulo danced sensuously, broken rib or not.
And for the full version of "Talk Dirty," he danced precision popping moves.
Derulo essentially closed with his new single "Trumpets," another song that he sang better even a nice falsetto as his dancers built a human pyramid. He ended the concert with short (less than a minute each) versions of the songs "Kama Sutra" and "Bubblegum" off his newest disc, "Talk Dirty," released in April.
The fact that the album has become Derulo's highest-charting ever should tell him something: It's OK to sing songs other than your hits. Fans want to hear deeper cuts, especially if it makes your show longer.
Instead, Derulo left the stage as his dancers continued [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Lockit[/url] a few more minutes to make the concert exactly an hour.

DENVER (CBS4) - After the Alkali Fire charred roughly 21,000 acres of brush and grass in northwestern Colorado last聽month, the state s so-far timid wildfire season limped meekly through July.
To be certain, a 21,000-acre wildland fire is no weakling. That s nearly 33 square miles, larger [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] than some of the most devastating blazes in recent Colorado history.
But the Alkali is the rare monster this year,聽comprising approximately聽80 percent of all acres that burned through the end of the month. Most other fires passed unnoticed by comparison. Even the Alkali drew relatively scant attention because of its remote location.
If you look at 2012 and 2013, by this time in those two years, we were way over the top so far as the number of fires, the number of burned acres and, unfortunately, the number of burned homes at that point in time. It was much more significant, says Rocco Snart, the section聽chief for the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control.
By聽July 28 this year, 589 fires burned 26,544 acres in Colorado, according to the U.S. Forest Service. Through聽the same date聽last year, 796 fires claimed 193,273 acres. Two years ago, 1,041 fires torched聽224,559 acres.
This year, credit a wet spring and summer, significant snowpack, lessened drought conditions and a lack of persistent heat all hallmarks of a wetter weather pattern throughout Colorado this year, Snart says.
showed most state river basins boasted聽higher snowpack levels, with the North Platte leading at 141 percent of normal. And the reported a stark difference in Colorado s drought: Last July, the entire state experienced some kind of drought conditions. By July 22 this year, only 40 percent of the state suffered some drought and less than 1 percent of the state was in exceptional drought.
Compare that to weather patterns in 2012 and 2013 when heat, lightning and wind rapidly sparked wildfires. But聽the forecasts the Rocky Mountain region Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska and parts of Wyoming and the Dakotas will see a much smaller number of burned acres this year.
By the end of July the last two seasons, several major fires destroyed more than 1,000 [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] homes in subdivisions outside of Colorado Springs and Fort Collins.
In 2013:
* The , now the most destructive wildfire in state history, burned 14,280 acres, destroyed 486聽homes and killed two after it began on June 11 north of Colorado Springs.
* The in southern Colorado claimed 13,572 acres and forced evacuation notices for Walsenburg residents before it was contained on July 9.
* The started June 5 and burned 110,405 acres after three separate fires merged near Wolf Creek Pass in southwestern Colorado. It鈥檚 the second-largest wildfire by area in state history, eclipsed only by 2002鈥檚 Hayman Fire, which burned nearly 138,000 acres.
In 2012:
* The killed one person, burned 87,284 acres and destroyed at least 250 homes after it began on June 9 west of Fort Collins. It was the most destructive wildfire in state history until the Waldo Canyon Fire began a few days later.
* The began June 23 and claimed 18,247 acres before crews extinguished it in mid-July. It killed two people and destroyed 346 homes northwest of Colorado Springs.
* The 聽in the San Juan National Forest burned聽approximately 25,000 acres before being contained in late July.

The calm fire season this year聽doesn t mean Colorado won t endure another tough one. In fact, grasses and trees fed by weeks of rain grow. And growth means fuel and potential for devastating blazes. This season, fire missed its usual accomplice聽 lots of聽lightning 聽and that has helped.
You ll have more fuel, but the question is: Are [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] there any ignitions? There haven t been a lot of ignition periods because there hasn t been a lot of lightning until the last week or so, Snart says.
Still, dry fuels just need just a small spark.
They re more receptive to fire, he says.

View gallery.Louis van Gaal says he will inform his players which of them are free to leave the club after tonight's friendly against , but I think he will have made his mind up a long time ago.The papers have been full of speculation as to which names will be [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] for the chop, so here鈥檚 my pick of four players who need to go, and one who should have a stay of execution.NANI: OUTView gallery.I just think he is too inconsistent for a top club. He has the ability but it just appears that he doesn鈥檛 want it badly enough. He wants to do a few stepovers and a few backheels but that isn鈥檛 how you win things, is it? When he is at it he has been very pleasing on the eye but his big performances are too few and far between.I saw him come on as a sub coming on for before anyone knew him, and instantly you thought, 鈥榯his boy has got something鈥? But as you do with those types of players, you wonder if he can put it together and have a career at the top level and he has never managed to do that.It was a bit bizarre that he got a new contract last season. For starters he was never a player and I thought he had had enough time at Manchester United to prove his worth, without managing to do so. Perhaps they were protecting his value so they could sell him this year and they will get good money because there is always someone willing to try and get the best out of him.JAVIER HERNANDEZ: OUTView gallery.It鈥檚 time for him to go. In terms of being top class he falls just short. He is very enthusiastic and works very hard but he suffered last year because Manchester United didn鈥檛 create the chances that they usually do. If he plays in a team that creates chances and you get him in the box, he will always score goals.For his sake, I think he needs to find regular football. He isn鈥檛 quite what United are looking for and there is no shame in that. [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] He will leave with the blessing of the United supporters after trying his heart out. His efforts have been fantastic.He made a big impact in his first season but he never really kicked on, and regressed if anything. He is so reliant on other players and doesn鈥檛 have enough on his own to truly be a world class player.SHINJI KAGAWA: OUTView gallery.Where do you fit him in? He is ever so talented, and did fantastically well at Borussia Dortmund, but where is his place in the side? He hasn鈥檛 taken to the tempo of the Premier League in truth and I think he is expendable because United have too many players like him, and they are better than him too.If Van Gaal is going to play one playmaker behind two strikers then it is going to be . They spent all that money on him and need to play him in his best position, and that will mean that there鈥檚 no space for Kagawa. Van Gaal knows he has better options.Some United fans feel he was never given a decent run in his favourite position, while others believe he never took the chances which came to him. I think it鈥檚 a combination of the two, but either way I would be amazed if there weren鈥檛 a queue of clubs in waiting to sign him given the impact he had with Dortmund. Given his marketability in Asia I think he is an attractive prospect and you鈥檒l get a good price, and that鈥檚 another reason they will sell him.ANDERSON: OUTView gallery.He just doesn鈥檛 get what it takes. Although he isn鈥檛 a big talker in the media, you get the impression he is the kind of player who likes to point the finger at someone else and attribute blame. Ultimately it is his career 鈥?he needs to get on with things but he hasn鈥檛 done that. There are too many other things that turn his head.I don鈥檛 think he is helping himself off the pitch. But take all that away and get down to the nub of the matter: he just doesn鈥檛 have the ability. As a No. 6 or 8 in midfield he just comes up short. There are clubs in the Premier League where he could play, but Manchester United is not one of them.I鈥檝e seen him have very good games, but he just doesn鈥檛 have the consistency or quality to deserve a place in the United squad, as Van Gaal goes about swinging the axe to perform necessary surgery on his squad.MAROUANE FELLAINI: INView gallery.He is not a popular figure amongst the United support but Fellaini has never had the luxury of playing in a United team that has been playing well or full of confidence. He got off to an awkward start when he joined them and David Moyes failed to get the best out of him, despite having done so at .Under Van Gaal, I still think there could be a role for Fellaini. He has got the kind of game that will cause even the best teams in Europe problems, if he is used in the right fashion. If United are playing 3-5-2 then he might have a chance of playing just in behind the front two. Whether he plays well or not, he will always bring you a physical presence that unsettles defenders. He is always a handful.He would be hard done by if he is culled from Old [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] Trafford after only a year and he deserves another chance to impress; he鈥檒l be desperate to. The best football he has played has been in the Premier League and I think it鈥檚 the perfect environment for him: he can thrive in a long-ball system or with the ball on the deck.Sports & RecreationSoccerManchester UnitedVan Gaal

鈥淭een Mom 2鈥?Jenelle Evans famously struggled with drug use on the hit MTV show, but now it seems Leah Messer is facing her own pill problem after the latest episode. Messer admitted she took an unnamed medicine prescribed by doctors, but the way it influenced her [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] shocked fans.聽
One scene in particular really surprised viewers. Messer was at work at the tanning salon and spa Tanfastiq in West Virginia, where she admitted she felt 鈥渟uper drowsy鈥?and then called her daughter Ali鈥檚 physical therapist, Kim.
鈥淚 forgot what I was going to say now,鈥?the mother of three said on the phone , as she struggled to keep her eyes open. 鈥淲hat do you think聽I should do about the wheelchair. . .鈥?she added and her words began to slur. At one point, MTV put up subtitles because the blonde reality star鈥檚 words could not be understood.
鈥淟ike they even make a lower dye and stuff, instead of putting all that stuff in a kid鈥檚 head,鈥?she mumbled. Kim eventually ended the call and said she could not hear Messer.
Fans took to Twitter after the episode, with many pointing out that Messer felt like she was on drugs simply because she was. Some of their comments have been posted below:

SEGUIN (August 4, 2014) Two workers at CMC Steel [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] in Seguin were taken to a hospital with serious burns after a container carrying 100 tons of molten metal collapsed Sunday night.

One man was in critical condition Monday with burns over 60 to 80 percent of his body.
The other man suffered burns to his hands.
Information about his condition wasn鈥檛 available.
The fire was the second in less than two months at the mill.

In March, Senator Brandis pushed ahead with plans to water down the act, releasing an exposure draft for public comment and famously proclaiming that people had the ''right to be a bigot''.
The move was met with stiff opposition from ethnic groups, Liberal MPs in marginal seats with large immigrant populations and was derided by the legal fraternity.
In a report to the NSW government, Arthur Moses, SC, wrote: ''With respect to the Attorney-General for Australia, his statement is misconceived [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-speedy-73]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] and plainly wrong. On no rational basis can it be asserted that Australians have a 'right to be bigots'.''
Matt Kean, the NSW Liberal spokesman for communities, welcomed the news.
''This is a victory for commonsense,'' he said. ''Our laws must send the strongest possible message that racism and bigotry have no place in Australia.''
Craig Laundy, a Liberal MP who faced stiff opposition in his multicultural Sydney electorate of Reid, said the reversal was a win for ''party process''.
The free market Institute of Public Affairs, which had lobbied for the changes, reacted with venom, accusing Mr Abbott of breaking a promise. ''The Coalition's failure to fulfil its promise to restore free speech in Australia by repealing section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act is incredibly disappointing,'' said IPA executive director John Roskam.
Labor legal affairs spokesman Mark Dreyfus said Mr Abbott had [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-siracusa-75]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] used the announcement of a boost in funding to counter-terrorism agencies ''as cover to dump deeply unpopular changes to the Racial Discrimination Act''.
''This was always a divisive and destructive repeal of a section that has served Australia very well for 20 years,'' he said.
''As recently as Monday night the AG was trumpeting the need to repeal section 18C. Clearly he has been rolled by cabinet. It is deeply humiliating for him.''
Last week, Fairfax media revealed the plan had been rejected by a marked majority of respondents to a review of the exposure draft sent out by Senator Brandis.
More than 76 per cent of 4100 submissions were opposed to the proposal, according to documents obtained [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-wilshire-76]Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] under freedom of information laws.

In a team meeting after the Bears concluded their first day of training camp, Sonny Dykes announced the two seniors have been awarded athletic scholarships. Gingold, a fullback, and McGovern, [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] a wide receiver, have both seen plenty of playing time in their Cal careers.
鈥淚t鈥檚 really rewarding for a coach to get to put deserving student-athletes on scholarship,鈥?Dykes said in a statement. 鈥淥ne of the best things that we get to do is reward people for their hard work.鈥?
According to the statement, the announcement from Dykes was greeted with cheers from the team.
McGovern has played in a team-high 35 games for Cal, all as a reserve receiver or on special teams. He鈥檒l likely play a similar 聽role this year for the Bears.

For drug deal turned shooting, Easton teen gets 4 to 8 yearsJared Alvin Jr. takes plea bargain in Easton stickup that ended in a shooting.August 05, 2014|By Riley Yates, Of The Morning CallIt started as a $100 drug sale, turned into a robbery, and wound up as a shooting.In the end, it'll cost 19-year-old Easton drug dealer Jared B. Alvin Jr. four to eight years of his life.That's the state prison term that Alvin received Monday under a plea bargain to a stickup last year in the West Ward that left Jerry Elwell Jr. with a bullet lodged in his neck.Late Dec. 21, a bleeding Elwell flagged down an Easton police officer, reporting he had been shot during a robbery as he drove his sedan, according to court records.Elwell told investigators that Alvin had phoned him that night asking if he wanted to buy marijuana. Elwell agreed and picked up Alvin and another man at [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] South 13th and Washington streets for the sale, police said.Inside the car, the other man pulled a handgun and pointed it at Elwell's head, Northampton County Assistant District Attorney Kelly Lewis Fallenstein said. The robbers demanded the money, and "at that point, the gun went off," Fallenstein said.Alvin wasn't arrested for more than a month after the shooting. But on Jan. 31, he was taken into custody by authorities after a chase at Spruce and Raspberry streets, police said. A search revealed he was carrying 16 bags of crack cocaine, 28 bags of heroin and $767 in cash, police said.Under the plea bargain, Alvin admitted to conspiracy to commit robbery in the shooting, and possession with intent to deliver heroin for the drugs. President Judge Stephen Baratta called the deal "rather generous," though he accepted its terms.Under the agreement, a one- to two-year sentence for the heroin charge was allowed to run alongside the robbery, meaning no additional jail time. Alvin was under supervision for a previous drug conviction at the time of the crimes, and that case was closed without further penalty.Fallenstein said Alvin has agreed to cooperate with authorities against [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] the man they have identified as the shooter, Dyquinn Little, who has not been charged. Alvin's plea deal was acceptable to Elwell, Fallenstein also said.Elwell was lucky to have not been more seriously injured, Fallenstein said. Though the bullet remains in his neck, Elwell was able to be released from the hospital just six hours after being admitted, she said."Really, he was a [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] very fortunate individual," Fallenstein said.In court, Alvin said he did not know that Little had a gun or planned to use it during the robbery. Alvin said he wanted to apologize to his victim.Defense attorney Philip Lauer called Alvin a "very bright" and "very adventurous" young man who headed in the wrong direction. In the courtroom in support of the teen were his mother, his father and his grandmother.Baratta countered that there was "nothing adventurous" about Alvin's actions."This is just criminal thinking. It's bad. There's nothing that would be considered cute or positive about any of this," Baratta said.Twitter @riley_yates610-253-5751Featured ArticlesMore:Related ArticlesJanuary 4, 1995August 8, 2012December 1, 2009October 10, 1990October 24, 2007Find More Stories About|||Please note the green-lined linked article text has been applied commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

DENVER (CBS4) The Broncos defense is playing with more of an edge during training camp so far, and the team expects defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio s squad will put in a better performance than last season.
While the Broncos offense was flying high and breaking NFL records right and left in 2013, the defense was crippled by injuries to several key players and wound up with a .
Here are the top five reasons the Broncos defense will be better this year.
1. T.J. Ward The Broncos defense took a licking [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] in the Super Bowl, and one observation many Broncos fans had about the game was that the Seahawks just hit harder on defense. With the pickup of safety T.J. Ward in free agency, general manager John Elway showed that he is serious about turning up the nasty factor on this defense. He s going to bring some toughness to our defense, Del Rio said.
T.J. Ward (credit: CBS)
During an early training camp practice at the team s Dove Valley headquarters, CBS4 s Tom Helmer observed that it s clear Ward is going to set the tone for the D. He hit everything that moved. He may have even hit a couple of ball boys, Helmer said.
CBS4 s Gary Miller agreed. They had to get somebody playing center field, and they did in T.J. Ward. He is going to shake some guys up.
2. Return from injuries An injury epidemic sidelined some of the biggest names on the Broncos defensive roster last season. The following defensive players all missed the Super Bowl: Von Miller, Rahim Moore, Kevin Vickerson, Derek Wolfe and Chris Harris Jr. Now they are all back, and all of the players who stepped in while they were gone have not just valuable regular season game experience, but playoff experience too.
Harris said upon his return to the practive field last week that he and Von Miller were competing to see who could recover faster from their surgeries. Just competing with him and him being ahead of me helped push me to get to where he was faster. Actually, I came back faster because he came back at seven months and I came back at six months. It s really not even six months yet for me so for me to be back out here this quick is really incredible, Harris said.
We ve [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] got our guys back now, Del Rio said.
3. Pass Rush. In his third NFL season Broncos defensive pass rushing specialist Von Miller will get to play with a veteran whom he idolized while he was growing up in Texas. Defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio says Miller, who is returning after season-ending knee surgery, will be at his best this year. CBS4 columnist Brett Heinzerling says Miller is still .
Everyone is itching to find out how opposing offenses will stop the dual threat of Miller and DeMarcus Ware. Ware, who the Broncos signed in free agency, clearly knows how to get to the quarterback he currently stands at No. 18 on the all-time career sack leaders list with 117. Opposing quarterbacks: look out!
4. Danny Trevathan emerges as a leader Weakside linebacker Danny Trevathan had a huge year for the Broncos in his second year [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] as a pro and wound up leading the team in tackles. The coaches expect big things out of Trevathan in his third year.
Danny Trevathan (credit: CBS)
Trevathan already sounded like a confident leader in the first week of training camp. When I m in there it s my defense, and it s my job to make sure we play our type of football that we re capable of, he said.
5. The D wants to be compared with the best. The Broncos defensive players want to be compared with that crushing defense the Seattle Seahawks brought to the Super Bowl. I think we re coming along real nice, defensive lineman Malik Jackson said. We ve still got to get out there and play some preseason games against competition, but right now we re looking real good.

According to Mr Druery, a dispute over unpaid bills resulted in him walking away from the arrangement with Family First.
Mr Fenn confirmed on Monday that he had been paying Mr Druery but denied there was ever any problem with paying on time. [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Brea[/url] ''Any invoice he gave us was paid,'' he said.
It is understood that after the relationship soured, Mr Druery orchestrated a number of crucial preference flows that propelled the Australian Motoring Enthusiast Party past Family First for the final seat in Victoria. The manoeuvre also ended the political career of Liberal Helen Kroger.
Australian Electoral Commission records show that at key stages in the count, preferences from the Fishing and Lifestyle Party and the Shooters and Fishers Party went to Mr Muir, helping to keep him in the count and preventing those preferences flowing to Mr Fenn.
At the time Mr Druery was being paid [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] by the Shooters in NSW and Fishing and Lifestyle in Western Australia. He filled out group voting tickets for both those parties, preferencing Mr Muir over Family First.
Mr Druery said: ''It was a simple business transaction. When someone doesn't pay, you don't keep working for them.''
Mr Fenn, who runs an affordable housing company, said Mr Druery was overstating his influence and that the Motoring Enthusiasts came ''up through the middle'' because no one had judged the party as a threat.
He said parties from the left and right were prepared to deal with Mr Muir's party as his party would never swap preferences with parties like the sex party and Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP).
Meanwhile, the acrimony over the sacking of [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] Mr Druery as Senator Muir's chief of staff continues. On Saturday, Fairfax Media revealed an extraordinary incident report, accusing Motoring Enthusiast Party founder Keith Littler of sexism, racism and bullying and revealing a toxic power struggle between him and Mr Druery.
It has now emerged that Mr Druery offered to reform the disbanded Victorian branch of the Motoring Enthusiasts and work to get Mr Littler a seat in the state upper house at the election in November.
He has accused Mr Littler of being behind his sacking and also claimed he has a plot to take Senator Muir's seat.

The stars of local television in the days of yore were, besides the anchors, your friends and neighbors. You might see the neighborhood tykes gathered around the kooky children鈥檚 show host in the station鈥檚 studio, the lady from down the block preparing her famous meatloaf on the local cooking program, or your uncle bowling for a little beer money.
The [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] arrival of the TV networks, the escalated quality of televised sports, and syndicated programming squeezed the homespun stuff into the margins. Yet some unique concepts with special talents鈥擶BAL Baltimore鈥檚 Romper Room, WLS Chicago鈥檚 Oprah Winfrey-helmed A.M. Chicago, KPTV Portland鈥檚 Better, to name a few鈥攚ent on to play on a much larger stage.
The majority may never air beyond their market鈥檚 borders, but a fresh crop of stationlevel programs, tailored to local tastes, are alive and thriving. Whether it鈥檚 ghost-hunting in Jacksonville, wrestling in the Pacific Northwest, a scripted cop drama in Norfolk or sex talk in South Beach, they鈥檙e creative, they define the local brand and they provide the station with self determination and ad inventory.
We scanned the small screens from Portland, Maine, to Portland, Oregon, to find the more creative local shows in America. Here鈥檚 what we stumbled on.
SCARIER THAN THE CUBS
SVENGOOLIE, WCIU CHICAGO
If there鈥檚 a face of creative local TV in America, it may just sport pale white makeup, thick black eye shadow and a faux beard like a horse鈥檚 tail. Take low-budget horror films and a host in a fright wig and top hat who hangs out in a coffin, and you鈥檝e got Svengoolie鈥攖he Chicago [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] institution that鈥檚 cheesier than deep-dish pizza. Played by Rich Koz, Svengoolie hosts the flicks and offers up corny jokes before and after the breaks; the cornier the quip, the more rubber chickens thrown at him by the crew.
Svengoolie launched on WFLD in 1970 with Jerry Bishop in the title role. In 1979, Koz鈥攁 former writer on the show鈥攄ebuted as Son of Svengoolie until Fox bought the station in 鈥?6 and cut Sven lose.
Neal Sabin, Weigel Broadcasting vice chair, brought the program back on WCIU in 鈥?4, with Svengoolie hosting a lively lineup of Universal horror movies. 鈥淚t鈥檚 a real Chicago local thing,鈥?says Sabin. 鈥淭here鈥檚 a lot of local humor and color.鈥?
Svengoolie airs 11 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturdays, averaging a 0.6 household rating and 2 share, and runs on the Me-TV network too. How much of an institution is Svengoolie? The Illinois General Assembly has declared this Oct. 31 Svengoolie/Rich Koz Day statewide. 鈥淚t鈥檚 not slick, it鈥檚 homespun,鈥?says Sabin. 鈥淭here鈥檚 so little of this kind of show left.鈥?
RABID CHICKEN IN STEPHEN KING COUNTRY
KICK START, WPXT PORTLAND (MAINE)
Of all the freewheeling shows on WPXT鈥?a travel program, a music show, a teen quiz bowl called Mest Up鈥擪ick Start [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK[/url] takes the creative crown. If Lewis Carroll had dreamed up a game show after downing a stiff glass of laudanum, it might look like Kick Start. A local power-punk band does the theme song, before Norm the Donkey and Danger the Rabid Chicken saunter around the set. (Norm shows support for the players, who are middle school students, while Danger menaces and mocks.) The kids battle in a trivia game, along with the 鈥淏uildy Thingy鈥?round, which recently saw the players compete to build the highest tower with clothespins, while blindfolded. There may be a cameo from Jose the Badly Animated Worm.

The Atlanta Dream did [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] get a boost on Sunday as head coach Michael Cooper returned to the sidelines for the first time since leaving the team to seek treatment for early stage tongue cancer. Cooper had surgery on July 25 and missed five games. Atlanta went 2-3 during [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] that span with assistant coach Karleen Thompson filling in. Thompson did indicate that Cooper would be with the team when they embark on a four-game road trip starting on Tuesday in Phoenix.
"Yeah he's here. He's doing well," said Thompson. "He can't yell as [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] much as he probably wants to. Coaching you have to be very instinctive. He can tell me what to say but when he wants to say something sometimes its hard for him to get it out there at that right moment but no he's here."

According to , the Canadiens agreed to extend Subban for $72 million, thereby avoiding the salary arbitration ruling. Initially, the Habs only offered $5.25 million a year. Subban and the team met on August 1 for an arbitration hearing which lasted four hours. Subban was asking for $8.5 million for a term lasting only one year. Now, Subban will rake in an average of $9 million a year.
Subban said, "I think that it sends a [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/url] strong message to me that they want me here and they appreciate everything I've done to this point and they believe in me as a player. I think I've always believed in that, but obviously in this process and coming out with this result, now everybody else understands it and can see it as well and doesn't have to speculate about how the Montreal Canadiens feel about me."
Subban and the Canadiens only had about 48 hours to reach an agreement after the hearing or until an arbitrary decision was made by Neumeier. Should an arbitration contract ensue, the two camps would not [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/url] be able to reach a new deal until January 1, 2015.
Bergevin said, "This agreement helps consolidate the future of our team. A key element of our group of young veterans, P.K. plays with a high level of intensity every time he steps onto the ice. Despite his young age, he carries a [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/url] great deal of experience and brings contagious energy to the team. Defensemen of his level are a rare commodity in the NHL."
P.K. Subban was an asset to the Habs especially during the 2012-2013 season where he became the first defenseman in the team to be given the James Norris Trophy since Chris Chelios.

Speaking at the National Press Club on Tuesday, Mr Goyder said Wesfarmers  the owner of Australia s second-largest supermarket chain, Coles  no longer thought its biggest competitor was Woolworths or Big W or one of the other physical competitors .
Market definitions needed to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 30[/url] be challenged by the regulator because they were being challenged by all markets at the moment, he said.
Advertisement
I think Amazon is the biggest threat that we ve got to our business model at the moment, Mr Goyder said.  [Amazon is] a $150 billion company that finds its competitive advantage through cheap labour, low tax and highly innovative supply chains.
For efficient Australian businesses to have any chance of competing with these global giants, we must maintain a domestic regulatory environment that encourages vigorous competition and nurtures innovation.
Mr Goyder also said he would like to keep his physical stores open 24/7 because that would better suit the modern online retail reality.
The regulations we deal with in terms of what [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] our physical presence can be and how we can operate in a physical environment are extraordinary in this day and age where our competitors can just go online, he said.
In Western Australia you can buy Coles groceries online 24/7 but you can only go to our stores through definitive hours that are set through regulation.
His comments come just months away from the G20 Leaders Summit in Brisbane, which is taking place in November.
Global leaders will be using the summit to try to come up with ways to combat global profit shifting and tax base erosion.
Mr Goyder weighed into the debate over corporate profit shifting, saying Australia ought to lower its corporate tax rate to allow local companies to better compete with foreign jurisdictions.
Australia does need to think seriously about its corporate tax rate and reduce it because countries like Ireland and the UK have reduced their tax rate, Mr Goyder said.
We paid something like $1.5 billion in tax last year. Year-in year-out, Wesfarmers pays somewhere like 29.5 per cent and 30.5 per cent of our pre-tax profits in tax. We re a significant taxpayer in this country, he said.
[But] some of our competitors from overseas  Aldi, Costco, those businesses  from what I can gather ... pay very small amounts of tax in this country.
Mr Goyder also said that if the federal government pushed ahead with its controversial paid parental leave scheme, he would consider boosting his support [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] for his company s in-house childcare services for Wesfarmers employees.
We would look at how we could subsidise childcare or become a subscriber to childcare facilities, he said.

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] If someone utters hack-a-thon and national security challenge in the same sentence, it might induce some worry unless you re talking about the GlobalHack competition.
A Washington, D.C. software firm that works with the Department of Defense and other government agencies聽is sponsoring the second GlobalHack, a homegrown hack-a-thon in St. Louis that attracts programmers from coast-to-coast and locks them in together for a weekend to solve a problem.
Hack-a-thons are short-term events where people come together and they build something very rapidly, GlobalHack C.O.O. Drew Winship聽explains.
In exchange for聽putting up聽a聽$50,000 prize, the sponsor聽gets to keep the winning end product.
This company, OGSystems, is scoping out St. Louis tech talent for a possible expansion.
If you are聽a prize sponsor, you basically聽get聽to interview 200 people for an entire weekend, so 50 hours of interviewing, Winship聽says. You get to see people at their best and at their worst. You get to see what they actually produce when its crunch time.
In an emailed statement,聽Mark Tappan, VIPER Labs Chief Engineer at OGSystems, added: We know this event will be a fantastic way to expand our research and development presence in the thriving St. Louis hi-tech market.
Last February, more than 200 developers聽came here from coast to coast from California to Chicago with hopes聽to cash-in the聽$50,000聽prize at the first GlobalHack.
There s only , of course. But since the competition, has wound up hiring 11 of the participants. Two of those were programmers聽who [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] d come from California for the event and have since relocated to St. Louis.
Winship says one major goal of GlobalHack is to raise聽the awareness of St. Louis amongst techies across the country by giving away cash in the聽caffeine-fueled, 48-hour dash to crack a challenge. (The first event s participants guzzled an entire pallet of Red Bull.)
He thinks that each GlobalHack could easily result in at least ten jobs being created.
As KMOX News last year, GlobalHack hopes to hold $50,000 hack-a-thons quarterly, as well as a yearly $1 million convention. The event was the brainchild of LockerDome founder Gabe Lozano. Winship is behind St. Louis start-up Juristat.
The second聽GlobalHack will be at the Cortex Innovation District August 22-24.

Pat Flynn of Tacoma is known as the mother of Relay For Life, which means most people know Dr. Gordon Klatt as the father of the event.But Flynn says that doesn t do him justice. He was way more than that ... she said. There is only one founder in the world of Relay For Life, and that is Gordy Klatt. Gordy Klatt, she said, changed the face of the fight against cancer forever. The Tacoma surgeon died at age 71 Sunday, his family said, following a recent struggle with a heart condition.In 1985, Klatt single-handedly changed the way the American Cancer Society raises funds by combining his passion for running with his passion for fighting against cancer. Klatt ran more [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] than 83 miles around the track at University of Puget Sound for 24 hours and raised $27,000 in tribute to a young man who died of the disease.The next year, 220 people on 19 teams joined him, and a worldwide phenomenon was born. In 1994, it became the American Cancer Society s signature event. Today, the Relay For Life is held in 23 countries and has raised nearly $5 billion. He s not going to be forgotten because he s the guy who started the Relay, said Harvey Rosen, who knew Klatt for decades. It s not even a local legacy, it s a worldwide legacy. Every time there s a Relay, he s going to be remembered. Flynn remembers her first glimpse of that legacy. And it was literally a glimpse.The gates to the UPS track were locked when she went to try to watch Klatt that first year. She knew him because she was a patient at his medical practice, and she peeked through the bars twice during the 24 hours to make sure [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] he was OK.It was while he was running on that track that he envisioned the team event, she said.A couple months later, he asked her to join the six-person committee to organize the first team event the next year. Neither of us ever dreamed that in 30 years it would raise $5 billion, Flynn said. He was always the vision, and I was the details person. Flying to put on a workshop for Relay in the early years, she said Klatt made some projection about how much they would raise in a certain number of years. I just looked at him and said: In your dreams, she remembered.Whatever it was, they far surpassed it.A Tacoma monument honoring Klatt and commemorating the start of Relay For Life is in the works. A committee headed by Rosen has raised nearly $115,000 to buy a sculpture honoring Klatt and a marker to tell the story of how the Relay came to be. The location has not yet been determined. Klatt himself was diagnosed with stomach cancer in March 2012. The guy was a battler right til the end, Rosen said. Whatever hospital he might have been in, the staff would ask him for his opinion because he knew more than some of these inexperienced [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton[/url] doctors and nurses. Klatt was a surgeon in Tacoma for 40 years. He spent three years as an Army surgeon and then went back to school to become a colorectal specialist. Klatt continued to run the relay until he had knee surgery in 1995, according to his wife of 23 years, Lou Klatt. He was a very kind, good-hearted, giving person, she said. He really cared about his patients. They were number one. He loved marathons, dancing, and playing the accordion and the piano. Klatt learned to play the accordion when he was 5 and continued to play until the end, although he had trouble lifting the 40-pound instrument.He s survived by his wife; three children from a previous marriage, Julie Sullivan, Lisa Steudel and David Klatt; five grandchildren; sister Kathy and brother Don. My grandchildren will see a day when there is no cancer, Klatt once predicted. Sullivan remembers him as a fun dad who drove the high school carpool, loved music and liked travel and photography.David Klatt said he and his dad enjoyed Husky football and Seattle Supersonics games together as season ticket holders.The family had their own relay team in the early years of the event, they said.The American Cancer Society did not wish to comment Monday, saying they would release a statement at a more appropriate time.

Looking for evidence of player development is sometimes easy. averaged 14.3 pts [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] and 2.7 assists per game prior to the All-Star break and 19.3 pts and 3.7 assists afterwards. Even controlling for his extra minutes per game his raw numbers would jump out at some one who wasn't even looking for improvement, but just happened to be perusing his splits.
This is what many observers expect to see from young players- an apparent "aha" moment (in this case Dion's showing at the Rising Stars game over the all-star break) where a player puts it all together. Even though this narrative is flawed (Dion's play leading up to the All-Star break was some of his best to that point in the season) it holds some truth to it. What has occurred since for a lot of Cavs fans is a projection based on that sample, because his TS% and his USG% jumped together, because he wracked up more assists, and because he was visually better on the court and in the box score his improvement was easy to see, and because he was in his second season his potential is easy to embrace.
has been spared this attention in a lot of ways, and viewpoints on FTS seem to range from thinking he's totally worthless to a decent role player with some potential remaining, and even among those holding out hope for Dion to reach All-Star status tend to discuss Thompson more as a solid citizen than as a potentially good basketball player. I am here to look at Thompson's season a little closer for some clues about how much potential he has left.
When you first look at his splits Thompson appears to have not only not improved over the year but actually to have regressed. His 12/9.5 prior to the ASB declined to 11/8.7- not a monstrous decline, but one that would [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] cause many to hesitate when looking for improvement. When you did into his advanced numbers you see that though his scoring declined it was due to a combination of fewer minutes and a decreased usage rate. His scoring only dipped a little bit, and not a lot, because his TS% actually jumped a large amount. During the final 3 months of the season his TS% was 57.5%, 53.2% and 62.6%, and those two higher numbers, the 57 and 62, represent his second best and best month of his career (not counting 1 game months of October), and that 53 mark is tied for his 4th best month.
His pre and post ASB numbers (which don't line up perfectly with those monthly splits, but whatever) are the difference between a bad scorer (50% TS on 18% USG) and a solid one (57% TS on 16% USG). If you like +/- he went from a -6.5 to a -1.6 in that span as well.
As far as a development gap between TT and Dion is concerned TT is 8 months older and holds a year of pro experience over Dion (who had a year extra college ball to mitigate that a little). More importantly though, in my opinion, is the fact that TT has started 164 games in the past two years while no other Cav has started more than 130 (), and 3rd place on the list is with 106 starts.
More than any other of the Cavs young players Thompson has had to alter his game on a nightly basis. He started next to 4 different centers this past year, beginning the season with a giant on a bad knee that couldn't score out side of 6 ft, ending it with a 7 footer that consistently played behind the arc, while in between a veteran of many years battled to stay healthy and a 23 year old trying to find his own way in the league. When Dion and Kyrie missed time TT suited up with the Jacks, Pargos, Livingstons, Gibsons, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] Ellingtons, Dellys and Mileses of the NBA.
I would also describe the rank (and I mean rank) and file of SFs that have passed through, but I recently ate and don't want to ruin my carpet.
In the middle of all that chaos, with players coming and going, spot starting and disappearing, coaches changing and half of Cavs fans (or more) wishing they had taken ahead of him, he switched shooting hands. A totally unprecedented move in the NBA. And he didn't get worse, he didn't switch hands and have a down year while he figured things out, he switched hands and move his TS% up by 1.2 points. He switched hands and saw his turnover rate decline by almost 10%. He switched hands like he switched coaches and teammates, and after a rough start to the season he demonstrated the kind of growth you want to see from a young player.
This coming season will be the first time that TT can expect to have a defined role, to have consistency surrounding him on the court and to have multiple players capable of warping the defense. Given his work ethic so far and his improvements over the years with Lebron out there with him I think it is inevitable that he will show a large statistical improvement, but unlike many I think he was due for that in any situation this season.

Fairfax Media has seen documents which contain the child sex charges against the man who allegedly abandoned baby Gammy with his surrogate mother in Thailand and took his twin sister.
The Supreme Court of Western Australia court documents list the 1997 charges against the man who has returned from Thailand to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Brea[/url] Bunbury, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] in WA s South West, with his wife and a baby girl.
The man appeared in Bunbury court to face charges of unlawfully and indecently dealing with a child under the age of 13 yearsand five counts of indecently dealing with a child under the age of 13 years.
The man was given a three-year jail term, with parole, for sexually molesting two girls under the age of 10.
He had pleaded not guilty to six charges of indecently dealing with a child under 13.
Fairfax Media revealed last week the couple are accused of taking home an infant girl born to surrogate mother Pattharamon Janbua [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] but abandoning her twin brother Gammy, who was born with Down syndrome and a hole in the heart.

Myriam Joire, Pebble's chief evangelist, tells us that the idea for the colors actually originated from a "#ColorMyPebble" campaign that [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] ran a couple of years ago as part of the original Kickstarter. The winners were orange and gray, but the team always wanted to expand its color repertoire beyond that to include the runners-up, and now it has. Interestingly, getting the color of the silicone band to match that of the polycarbonate watch proved to be a challenge -- Joire joked that [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] the team spent some time deciding on just the right shade of pink.
Of course, as with the original Pebble, the watchbands on the Limited Edition versions can be swapped out to your heart's content -- any 22mm watchband will do. "Customizing is a big part of what we want our watches to be," said Joire. Speaking of customization, Pebble also released a set of new text watch faces to match the new colors, which should be available on the Pebble appstore starting today. Also available is a new app from The Weather Channel. And last but not least, Pebble also announced that an animated Reading Rainbow [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] watch face with an 8-bit LeVar Burton should be coming soon, to coincide with the release of the special later this year.

"I saw where 15 guys sat out for the ," Jones said, referring to last Sunday's Hall of Fame Game between the Giants and . "That's part of camp. The good news is, most of these guys are coming back to play. Some teams aren't that fortunate and we've been not that fortunate before. So far I wouldn't say there's any concern."

BTB's daily digest of training camp doings features this little nugget you won't find elsewhere:
Before the official start of practice, the defense gathered to work on run fits. The last man on the field was Jeremy Mincey, whose late arrival did not go unnoticed. As he hustled over to where his defensive mates were already set to work, yelled out, quite loudly, "F&#% Mincey. Same time every day. We say we want to be good." This was awesome for two reasons: clearly, the defense is talking about how it wants to be good, and what it will take to get there. And Scandrick is stepping up, policing the guys whose actions belie their words. Last time I checked, this is called leadership.

Another "live from camp" style snippet (and one that I overheard as well):
Weeden did throw an incomplete pass to Harris in the end zone while working against Mitchell. Harris never turned around for the quick pass. WRs coach Derek Dooley yelled at Harris, "Got to look quick."

This kind of summed up the defense's day:
Head coach Jason Garrett taunted the cornerbacks during the early portion of one-on-one passing drills. "This is a bludgeoning so far!" Garrett hollered after the receivers opened the drills with three consecutive catches. The cornerbacks responded by drawing flags from the NFL officiating crew working the practice on three of the next four plays.


The Broad One offers a couple handfuls (plus two) of observations from camp thus far, including this:
is making me look bad. I gave him no shot to be the starter at Mike linebacker but he has nothing but look comfortable and confident in handling the position. There is a real desire for him within to get to that football.

In a look back on Sunday's action, Taylor shares this conversation with Nate Newton as both sat watching the defense get gouged:
Newton leaned over and said, "If Butch Davis or Dave Wannstedt was coaching this defense and they had a day like this, he鈥檇 tell one of his guys, 'Enough of this, let鈥檚 take them to the ground. I want to see somebody get hit.'
Sure enough, satisfied Wannstedt's injunction a couple of days later...

A nifty ten-click slideshow that covers some of camp's big stories thus far.


Dallas released injured backup guard and brought in former Bronco and Saint Wayne Tribue. In addition, sources report that the put in a claim on recently released offensive tackle Michael Bowie. The Cowboys didn't receive Bowie, because three other teams also put in a claim on the injured tackle, and he was awarded to the .

Officially retired former Cowboys defensive tackle will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Thursday in his bid to seek reinstatement to the league, according to Jerry Jones.聽 If Brent is cleared to return, Jones told reporters that the Cowboys would clear a roster spot for him.


A bit more perspective from the Cowboys' owner: as the title suggests, he told reporters after practice that this offense is as good as any since 2007. And, as Helman reports,
Other than the 2007 team, Jones said the last time he felt as good about his offense was about 10 years before that, during the Cowboys dynastic run of championships in the mid-90鈥檚.

This piece on former All-Pro Defensive tackle-cum-coach has a nice little button on it:
You can usually find him at the end of the field working one-on-one with a player. One afternoon he spent about 20 minutes working furiously with on hand placement while rushing the passer. When it was over, each man drenched with sweat, walked off the field.

Theatergoers at 鈥淨uills,鈥?Doug Wright鈥檚 strange and thoughtful play about the Marquis de Sade, may be pleased to discover how much they laugh at something that takes place, after all, in an 18th-century madhouse. They may be less surprised, and perhaps less pleased as well, when they find themselves gagging.Director Brooke Edwards pushes the limit in this production, which confronts questions of taste, obviously, but also of humanity and trust. Fortunately she works with an actor as bold as she is.Ted Gregory gives a fearless performance as the Marquis, one of the few people in history to give his name to an aberrant sexual practice. Coy and fairly ridiculous in his powdered wig and breeches, this Marquis continues to flirt, to argue and to behave as if he were in no way reduced after nearly [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] everything is taken from him, starting with his clothes. Gregory spends much of the play nearly naked, a challenge on an ordinary stage. The Wool Studio [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] Theatre, where the audience sits mere feet from the performers, ups the ante relentlessly. At least the performers are handsomely set apart from us, on Dunsi Dai鈥檚 rich set.Rooted but by no means confined to historical fact, Wright鈥檚 play finds the Marquis in the care of the asylum鈥檚 stern head doctor (David Wassilak) and a gentle priest (Antonio Rodriguez) who treats him with kindness. But the priest has allowed the Marquis to keep writing, disgracing his wealthy wife (Stacie Knock, whose over-the-top performance contrasts well with Wassilak鈥檚 severe reserve).The priest worries about the Marquis鈥?effect on others, especially a na茂ve laundress (Caitlin Mickey), while the doctor is preoccupied with a lavish house, he鈥檚 hired an architect (Charlie Barron) to design for his faithless wife (Mickey again). But their famous patient always demands more attention.Wright doesn鈥檛 shy away from his subject. Quoting the Marquis鈥?own words, Wright makes sure we [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] understand that he isn鈥檛 merely naughty 鈥?he鈥檚 sick. For all his airs, his inability to distinguish between pleasure and pain finally reveals itself. (Not for children, the play could upset many adults as well.)Ultimately, the priest feels compelled 鈥?or is willing? 鈥?to use harsher and harsher measures to hold the Marquis in check. What that does to him, a change Rodriguez reveals slowly, is Wright鈥檚 true subject in this cautionary tale, related with unstinting verve.鈥楺uills鈥橶hen 鈥?Through Aug. 17Where 鈥?Wool Studio Theatre, JCC鈥檚 Wool Studio Theatre in the A E building at the Staenberg Family Complex, 2 Millstone Campus DriveHow much 鈥?$30; $20 for students and older adultsMore info 鈥?1-800-838-3006; maxandlouie.com

Secretary of State John Kerry was right to push for an immediate cease-fire [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] in Gaza. All outside parties should do everything they can to end a war in which both Israel and Hamas seem willing to fight to the death of the last Palestinian civilian.Kerry has been slammed as naive for pressing Israel to end its attack, which as of this writing has cost the lives of more than 1,300 Palestinians and 59 Israelis. The contention of Kerry s critics essentially that more killing of innocent civilians is justified if, in the end, Hamas is defanged and discredited strikes me as morally untenable. Israel s undeniable right to self-defense does not extend to shelling a school crowded with unarmed refugees. It is understandable that Israel would want to destroy tunnels that terrorists might use for attacks or kidnappings. But Kerry s cease-fire proposal did not call for the Israeli armed forces to withdraw from Gaza, and U.S. officials reportedly gave assurances that Israel could continue its demolition of the tunnels during any pause in the fighting. The real objection of those who ridicule the secretary s efforts seems to be that he came up with a plan that Hamas and its key remaining allies the Islamist governments of Qatar and Turkey could actually accept. To say that Hamas is increasingly isolated is an understatement. Its most important patron the Muslim Brotherhood-led government in Egypt is gone, replaced by the brutally anti-Islamist regime of President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi. Rather than come to Hamas defense, Egypt has sealed [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] the border crossing at Rafah, in effect helping Israel squeeze Gaza in a vise. Meanwhile, the governments of Saudi Arabia and Jordan, which usually provide rhetorical and diplomatic support to the Palestinian side during these periodic clashes, have been publicly silent. And the West Bank leadership of the Palestinian Authority under Mahmoud Abbas has been anything but full-throated in calling for an end to the Israeli campaign. These Arab regimes see the Islamist political movement which is threatening to fill the power vacuums left by the tumult of the Arab Spring as a potentially mortal threat. Crushing Hamas would be a major blow against the Islamists. So why press the Israelis to stop? This is the broader strategic context that Kerry allegedly fails to appreciate. But I disagree, both on Kerry s supposed inability to see the big picture and on what that picture really looks like. It would be a tragic mistake, in my view, to accept the proposition that U.S. policy in the Middle East must be entirely shaped by the Islamists versus secularists framework as construed by pro-Western but clearly self-interested governments in the region. The view that Israel should be left to finish the job against Hamas sounds like clear-eyed realpolitik. Actually, however, it is an illusion. There are two major problems with having U.S. policy adopt this approach. First is the tremendous loss of human life. It matters that civilians are in the line of fire between Israel and Hamas even if, in some instances, it seems clear that Hamas put them there. Israel is and will remain one of America s closest allies. But while it is not possible to specify an exact number of acceptable Palestinian casualties, that number has clearly been surpassed. Second, it seems obvious to me that further smashing of Hamas is unlikely to bring either Israel or the United States closer to what should be our common strategic goals. Eventually, Islamist militants in Gaza whether or not they remain in power will dig new tunnels and restock their stores of rockets. Even if Hamas were to cease to exist as a formal organization, how long would it be before something very much like Hamas arose to take its place? The way for Israel to minimize Islamist radicalism in Gaza and the West Bank is to show Palestinians a brighter potential future under moderate secular leadership. Instead, Israel undermines Abbas by building on land that would have to be Palestinian territory in any equitable two-state solution. As far as U.S. interests are concerned, it is obvious that our policy should be to fight Islamist terrorist groups such as the Islamic State. But we should not lose sight of the fact that radical Islam, as a regionwide phenomenon, is an ideological force that cannot be bombed out of existence. Channeling the Islamist impulse onto a constructive path is one of the great international challenges of our age. Killing civilians in [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Delightful[/url] Gaza makes that task even harder.

Reyna met Monday with office personnel in the county鈥檚 visiting courtroom but locked the door and would not allow media inside the room.
When he emerged about 20 minutes later, Reyna announced that Jarrett, Reyna鈥檚 former first assistant, would replace Greg Davis, who resigned 10 days ago, saying only that it was something he had been considering for some time.
Davis; Joe Layman, Reyna鈥檚 misdemeanor chief; and Julissa Contreras, Reyna鈥檚 administrative assistant, all have resigned in the past 10 days, joining five other prosecutors who resigned since the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] first of the year.
Reyna said Monday the timing of the resignations is coincidental, denying reports that the most recent departures are because of office turmoil and dissatisfaction with the way he runs the office.
鈥淚 don鈥檛 believe that to be correct,鈥?Reyna said, adding he would not discuss personnel issues.
Jarrett, Reyna鈥檚 initial first assistant when he took office in January 2011, switched places with Davis, Reyna鈥檚 then-deputy first assistant, after Reyna demoted Jarrett in November for in the district attorney鈥檚 office while examining another prosecutor鈥檚 new Glock 40-caliber pistol.
No one was injured in the incident. The bullet struck a brick wall outside the district attorney鈥檚 office.
Jarrett and Davis also swapped salaries at the time, with Jarrett dropping from $117,863 to $103,600.
鈥淚 feel confident in Michael鈥檚 abilities,鈥?Reyna said Monday. 鈥淗e and I worked together to build this office in the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] first place and I know we will be able to keep this office working effectively for the people of this county.鈥?
Reyna said he is not concerned that almost a quarter of his staff has left since the first of January.
鈥淵ou are going to have change and turnover in a DA鈥檚 office,鈥?he said. 鈥淲e work hard over here. You just have to adapt to those changes and work through them. Some of those who left went on to what they thought were better opportunities. I鈥檓 not sure about why some of the others left.鈥?
Jarrett said he [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] looks forward to continuing to serve the citizens as he has the past three years.
鈥淭his was the position I accepted nearly four years ago, and there is a lot of pride in serving the people of McLennan County,鈥?Jarrett said.

The showroom of small tailoring firm Oscar Hunt (pictured below), situated on Melbourne鈥檚 historic Hardware Lane, is a far cry from the brightly lit chain stores in nearby Bourke Street.Leather sofas, Chesterfield armchairs and a dark wood d cor that wouldn鈥檛 look out of place in a hunting lodge create a space dedicated to masculine comforts.The finishing touch is a fully stocked bar and selection of spirits that make going to an Oscar Hunt fitting feel less like a visit to your local tailor and more like the kind of bar where, just like in Cheers, everybody knows your name.Oscar Hunt marketing manager Lachie Watson points out that while there is a focus on capturing a particular aesthetic in the showroom, it is the backdrop to what really sets apart a traditional fitting from buying online 鈥?the relationship between tailor and clientele. 鈥淭he process of a traditional fitting can definitely form a familiarity or camaraderie that retail can鈥檛,鈥?Watson says.鈥淓ach client relationship is different and it鈥檚 an association built on trust and honesty. Some relationships form very easily and quickly, others take time to foster. Sometimes, this can even extend outside of just being clientele, hence the saying 鈥榓 tailor is a man鈥檚 best friend鈥?鈥滾etting the light inSydney-based P. Johnson Tailors follows a similar ethos. Based in Sydney鈥檚 boutique Paddington district, it feels more like a bachelor pad from the pages of a Bret Easton Ellis novel than one of [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-cosmic-blossom-63]LV Cosmic Blossom[/url] Sydney鈥檚 most sought-after clothiers. Complete with foosball table and lounge setting, the studio floor (below) is a light-filled space where any man could quite easily forget that he was in the middle of a formal fitting.Tailor and founder of the eponymous label, Patrick Johnson, agrees the experience of going to a tailor should be akin to visiting your closest confidant who just happens to double as a personal stylist. 鈥淐lients really put a lot of faith and goodwill into their tailor,鈥?Johnson says.鈥淚t's a leap of faith, so it requires sensitivity, time and a good understanding. We experience sides of people that perhaps not everyone does, a little like a doctor would. We have to know our clients in order to know what it is they really need from us.鈥漃rior to opening his Sydney studio, Johnson learnt his trade at [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-mahina-cuir-65]LV Mahina cuir[/url] London鈥檚 prestigious St Martins College before being mentored by pre-eminent shirt maker and tailor, Robert Emmett. He acknowledges that while there is a tradition of tailors being considered 鈥渕an spaces鈥?of a particular look and feel, newer interpretations are more in tune with the modern man.鈥淒ark wood panelling and whisky is often how they鈥檙e imagined,鈥?Johnson says. 鈥淲e didn鈥檛 feel the need to necessarily masculinise our spaces, but instead filled them with light and the things we feel strongly about.

The owner and creative director of Sydney-based made-to-measure service Mister Mister (pictured below), Daniel Narvaez, believes it鈥檚 this level of surety - along with creating a more streamlined shopping experience - that has ignited the interest of modern men in tailoring.The growing preference for professionally tailored garments is one born of frustration, he says - not only in searching for something that fits correctly, but also for assurance about the quality of the purchase.鈥淔or a long time, the only way [most men] knew how to buy clothing was to visit a department store,鈥?Narvaez says. 鈥淸Once there] one is met with too many choices and most guys don鈥檛 actually know how certain styles of clothes are meant to fit.

Zinc mining waste cleanup in Upper Saucon nearly completeEastern Industries, which holds the mining permit for the Lehigh University land and is responsible for its remediation, is close to finishing the job, state regulators say.August 04, 2014|By Scott Kraus, Of The Morning CallWhen Lehigh University came into a windfall of land donated to the school in 2012 by the Donald B. and Dorothy Stabler Foundation, it came with one piece of baggage.A chunk of the 755 acres of donated property included contaminated limestone tailings a form of zinc mining waste that the state insisted had to be cleaned up before that portion could be developed.Nearly two years later, Eastern Industries, the local company that holds the mining permit for the land and is responsible for its remediation, is close to finishing the job, state regulators say. It has stabilized the property, layered clean soil and rock over the zinc piles and seeded the newly-graded property to stabilize it.Now [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy Round[/url] the company just needs to grow some grass."This was an agreed-upon remedy, provided the vegetation takes," said Colleen Connolly, spokeswoman for the state Department of Environmental Protection. "DEP will inspect to see if the planting and seeding is satisfactory at the site. Eastern Industries just has to make sure the vegetation progresses."DEP and Lehigh County Conservation District inspectors visited the site in June to inspect the work, she said."It is a process DEP required, and we have been following their protocol," said Rusty Taft, Eastern's land permit and environmental manager.The cleanup was designed to prevent dust emanating from the mining waste, which includes zinc and arsenic, from being caught up and dispersed in the wind.State officials had initially given the company until the end of August 2013 to complete the regrading, and the end of September 2013 to grow the grass.Last year, Connolly said, dust from the piles was not blowing off the 139-acre former mine site, and it was not a public health threat.Taft said the site needed some "additional maintenance" before that work could be completed, pushing it into 2014.The cleanup is part of the process of closing out the mining permit, which will pave the way for the eventual development of the land.Former Lehigh University President Alice Gast told the Upper Saucon Township supervisors last year that the university hopes to sell or lease 300 acres of property for development. The land is near Route 309, Interstate 78 and Center Valley Parkway north of the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley.Medical device maker B. Braun has already announced plans to build a new U.S. corporate headquarters on one parcel in that area.Lehigh has established a separate entity LU Properties LLC to plan for the long-term use of the donated property.University spokesman Jordan Reese said Lehigh is encouraged by Eastern Industries' cleanup efforts."As the parcel of Stabler land closest to Lehigh's existing campuses, Lehigh's long-term plan for the property is mission-focused, meaning it makes the most sense for future academic use," he said. "We are working on a strategic plan for the property that will involve input and ideas from campus."Testing performed in July 2012 showed soil samples from all 20 locations in the limestone piles on the contaminated parcel to the east of the Promenade Shops contained levels of arsenic that exceeded certain statewide health standards.Zinc was detected at levels exceeding state guidelines in one sample taken in the limestone piles.Complaints from one resident about dust escaping the site prompted an investigation that determined that two of the berms that contain the limestone had crumbled, exposing the piles to wind. The berms were to be repaired as part of the reclamation project, Connolly said.If the site is developed, the builder will have to work with DEP to safely address the arsenic contained in the zinc mining waste.Twitter @skraus610-820-6745Featured ArticlesMore:Related ArticlesAugust 15, 2013August 12, 2013November 14, 2012May 7, 2012May 11, 2012Find More Stories About|||Please note the green-lined linked article text has been applied commercially without any involvement from our newsroom editors, reporters or any other editorial staff.

Going back a step further, the text being translated came from a TV profile of the company s former president, now general manager, Toshio Suzuki, which ran on Japanese TV at the weekend. Various fansites then reported that Suzuki had announced Ghibli's closure, and those reports were picked up by others, including the .

Kotaku also says that at the time of writing no Japanese newspapers or morning TV shows have carried the story of Ghibli's supposedly imminent closure. Given that such news would be treated as a matter of great significance in Japan, that might be taken as indicative that the reports may not be accurate.
There is no doubt, however, that Studio Ghibli is in transition. Its future direction has been the source of discussion [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-denim-60]LV Monogram Denim[/url] inside and outside the company since its co-founder and most prominent figure, Hayao Miyazaki, announced he would retire from directing and that his most recent film, The Wind Rises, would be his last.
Miyazaki nonetheless remains a creative presence within the company.
Studio Ghibli was co-founded by Miyazaki and Isao Takahata in 1985. It has produced a succession of masterpieces that have been hits around the world, including Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke.
The company s president, Koji Hoshino told The Age earlier this year that Ghibli has its own way of doing things. Setting an expectation, making a business plan, working towards it, that s not the way Ghibli operates. In a [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-mini-64]LV Monogram Mini[/url] way that s a point of difference from a typical commercial enterprise. For Miyazaki and Takahata, he said, the idea always comes first. It s always been the mantra of this studio.
The Wind Rises was released in Australia earlier this year, and Takahata s The Tale of Princess Kaguya is screening at the Melbourne International Film Festival, and will be screened in cinemas later this year.
The local release of Ghibli s most recent feature, When Marnie Was There, is still under negotiation.

Kotaku also says that at the time of writing no Japanese newspapers or morning TV shows have carried the story of Ghibli's supposedly imminent closure. Given that such news would be treated as a matter of great significance in Japan, that might be taken as indicative that the reports may not be accurate.
There is no doubt, however, that Studio Ghibli is in transition. Its future direction has been the source of discussion [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-denim-60]LV Monogram Denim[/url] inside and outside the company since its co-founder and most prominent figure, Hayao Miyazaki, announced he would retire from directing and that his most recent film, The Wind Rises, would be his last.
Miyazaki nonetheless remains a creative presence within the company.
Studio Ghibli was co-founded by Miyazaki and Isao Takahata in 1985. It has produced a succession of masterpieces that have been hits around the world, including Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke.
The company s president, Koji Hoshino told The Age earlier this year that Ghibli has its own way of doing things. Setting an expectation, making a business plan, working towards it, that s not the way Ghibli operates. In a [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-mini-64]LV Monogram Mini[/url] way that s a point of difference from a typical commercial enterprise. For Miyazaki and Takahata, he said, the idea always comes first. It s always been the mantra of this studio.
The Wind Rises was released in Australia earlier this year, and Takahata s The Tale of Princess Kaguya is screening at the Melbourne International Film Festival, and will be screened in cinemas later this year.
The local release of Ghibli s most recent feature, When Marnie Was There, is still under negotiation.

In a week heavy on new reality shows, you may think there's nothing to watch. (On the other hand, you also may think "yay!") But if you prefer your drama scripted, stay tuned until week's end, when two of the season's best make their debuts. Here are seven shows that should be on your radar this week."Bachelor in Paradise"7 p.m. Monday on ABCTears, handcuffs and an ambulance! "Bachelor in Paradise," this summer's answer to "Bachelor Pad," promises this trifecta of reality dating shows. Plus, there's a wicked twist. The summer series, set in Tulum, Mexico, begins with six men and eight women. Two of the latter are sent home the first night as the remaining six and six couple up. But the course of "Bachelor in Paradise" doesn't run smooth, as two new men and (in alternate weeks) women arrive to spice things up. The later arrivals include St. Louis [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] nurse Danielle Ronco, who escaped with her dignity in the Juan Pablo season. "This time around," ABC says, "she has her heart set on fan favorite Marquel." That's Marquel Martin, a recent veteran of Andi Dorfman's season."Partners"8 p.m. Monday on FXKelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence are Chicago lawyers in a new sitcom set to air 10 episodes over the next five weeks. If FX then opts to pick up the series, it will be renewed for 90 additional episodes, the same deal Charlie Sheen got for his "Anger Management.""Skin Wars"8 p.m. Wednesday on GSNBecause we will apparently watch people [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] compete at anything, GSN offers this new series about competitive body painting. Rebecca Romijn is host, with RuPaul as one of the judges."Top Chef Duels"9 p.m. Wednesday on BravoBravo fills in before the next season of "Top Chef" with "Duels," with Curtis Stone as host. The format has former "Top Chef" contestants competing one-on-one in two rounds. "Top Chef Boston" premieres in the fall."Extreme Guide to Parenting"8:30 p.m. Thursday on BravoIf you've ever had doubts about your own parenting [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/url] style, meet the wackos of "Extreme Guide" and prepare to feel better about yourself. Great, even. The new unscripted show introduces parents who hover way, way too close to their kids or, on the other hand, encourage ... well, you'll have to see it to believe it."The Knick"9 p.m. Friday on CinemaxClive Owen is a doctor at New York's Knickerbocker Hospital in 1900 in a new drama series that delves into the big changes happening in medicine, and in life, at the turn of the 20th century. ."Outlander"8 p.m. Saturday on StarzA nurse (Caitriona Balfe) in post-World War II England is mysteriously transported back to the Scottish Highlands in 1743 in a new drama series adapted from the Diana Gabaldon books by Ronald D.

Mrs. Fields' owner purchased TCBY in 2000, but the company filed for bankruptcy eight years later, and then restructured in 2011 to become Famous Brands International.
David Bloom, chief operating officer of Famous Brands, acknowledged that the chains have been in a rut. Sales of both fell about 7% last year, according to Technomic, a restaurant industry research firm.
After Z Capitol Partners purchased Famous Brands last summer, the company decided to pair the two chains [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton[/url] in an attempt to revive growth and profits.
"We feel we now have a significantly better offering, so we feel comfortable coming back," Bloom said.
The company has already doubled its store openings compared to last year, Bloom said. Dual-branded stores account for 80% of that growth.
The new shops are the latest example of dessert chains expanding their menus to stay afloat in a saturated market, said Bonnie Riggs, a restaurant industry analyst with the NPD Group.
Crumbs Bake Shop is planning to reopen with a wider dessert selection, and Red Mango Frozen Yogurt recently added sandwiches, wraps and salads with its sister company, Smoothie Factory, to become more of a cafe.
Riggs said although Mrs. Fields and TCBY suffered from overexpansion, high rents and changing trends, their strong brand recognition gives them a leg up. "People will try them again," Riggs said.
The dual-brand concept could be a game changer [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]LOUIS VUITTON Site Officiel[/url] for the company, agreed Mary Chapman, director of product innovation for Technomic.
"Pairing a frozen dessert with a bakery style treat hedges trends," Chapman said. "If consumer tastes shift from one, the other is there to back it up."
Bloom said he believes that an updated image and TCBY's healthy options will appeal to L.A. consumers. Four dual-concept stores are slated to open in L.A. within six to eight months with seven more set to open in the county. Mrs. Fields' existing mall locations will add frozen yogurt, starting with a store in the Santa Anita fashion mall.
At the new shops, customers can order a variety of TCBY frozen yogurts, including a vegan option and one mixed with Mrs. Fields brownies. Cookie-and-yogurt sandwiches, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] muffins and coffee are also offered.
Each store will also have a Mrs. Fields gift station where customers can customize and ship red tins filled with baked goods worldwide.

LAMPASAS (August 4, 2014) A man who was reported to have violated a protective order early Monday afternoon threatened suicide, doused himself with what appeared to be gasoline, jumped into his truck and led Lampasas officers on a chase that ended when he pulled into an isolated field and killed himself, police said.
Police received a report at around 12:40 p.m. Monday that the man, whose name was not released, was throwing rocks at a home [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] in the 500 block of West 3rd Street whose resident had a protective order against him.
Officer Andrew Catherine arrived in time to see the man douse himself from head to foot with what appeared to be gasoline, police said.
The man then got into a 2001 Sierra GMC truck and drove off with the officer attempting to pull him over as he headed east on 2nd Street, police said.
A second officer joined the chase, which headed north on Hackberry to East 580 where the man headed east at speeds reaching [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] 90 miles per hour, police said.
The chase ended after the man turned onto County Road 3010 outside of the city and drove into an isolated field about a quarter mile off [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] the road, police said.
The man stopped, placed the barrel of a gun in his mouth and ignored officers鈥?orders to drop the weapon, police said.
Despite the officers鈥?efforts to talk him out of it, shot and killed himself, police said.
The man was flown to Baylor Scott & White Hospital in Temple where he died.

Judge Alison Nathan for the New York District Court for the Southern District last week denied Aereo's request for immediate consideration of its preliminary injunction聽"issues," saying that unless it is聽allowed to resume its service "in the immediate [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] future, the company will likely not survive....the company is figuratively bleeding to death."
The court agreed with broadcasters that the "appropriate step" was for Aereo to prepare an order "consistent with the Supreme Court's decision" and gave Aereo two weeks from July 31 to make its case in that order.
The New York Southern District Court is the court that initially denied the preliminary injunction, only to be overturned by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, which was then overturned by the Supreme Court's聽June 25 decision that Aereo's delivery of TV station signals over the Internet was a performance that violated copyright law [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] since Aereo had not paid a fee. The Supreme Court remanded it to the lower court.
The Supreme Court said that Aereo was like a cable system in that it also provided a public performance. Aereo, which had argued it was not like a cable system, latched onto that and asked the Copyright Office to grant it a compulsory license. The Copyright Office said it still believed that Internet retransmissions were not subject to the compulsory license, but would hold the request in abeyance in case the [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] courts or regulators came to a different view.
The FCC has also tentatively concluded that over-the-top services lack the facilities to qualify as MVPDs, and appears in no hurry to make the definitive call.
In its emergency petition, Aereo argued that it was now clear that it was a cable system and broadcasters were unlikely to prevail in their argument that the service was illegal. It can still make that argument, but on the court鈥檚 timetable.

A commentary?Big crowdsSpeaking of Rubix Kube, the band [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton Soldes[/url] drew a huge crowd Monday not surprising, since it has played paid-ticket shows at Bethlehem's Musikfest Caf and near Jim Thorpe.But near all the Musikfest venues on Bethlehem's North Side had big crowds yesterday especially considering it was Monday, typically not the busiest day for Musikfest.Mark Demko, director of public relations for ArtsQuest, the nonprofit group that presents Musikfest, attributed it to Monday's fine weather, after a spotty weekend.There were a good 750 people watching The Badlees at Liederplatz, likely a thousand watching Rubix Kube at Festplatz, the same number gathered for Grateful Dead tribute band Splintered Sunlight at Plaza Tropical and several hundred at the same time at Volksplatz for Philadelphia Celtic rockers Barleyjuice.BarleyjuiceSpeaking of Barleyjuice, the band announced it won't be at Bethlehem's festival this year because it's headed to Ireland for a tour.To make up for it, the band played a caution-to-the-wind set of delightfully drunken songs driven by violin and accordion.

NEW YORK, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- In Douglas Ward's inaugural apart from the meticulous descriptions, evaluations and star ratings (he applies the same vigorous criteria that he does to the ocean-going liners in Berlitz's Cruising Cruise Ships, whose new 30th-anniversary edition publishes in September), there are numerous side features that may have particular interest and topicality for passengers and cruise professionals. For example:
Question: Is seasickness a problem aboard a rivership?
Answer: No. A rivership, with its flat bottom, is designed for very [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] shallow water and travels at no more than 11 mph. No waves, no seasickness. Itineraries can, however, be affected by low or high water.
Question: Is there medical assistance available?
Answer: Unlike an ocean cruise ship, there is generally neither a doctor nor a nurse on board, but riverships are always close to land so emergency medical arrangements can be made quickly.
Question: Are there differences between river cruise operators?
Answer: Yes. Remember brochures and websites are designed by the company itself. Use brochures to determine which itinerary attracts you, but use the book for an objective, no-holds-barred rundown on what's really good (and less so) on a particular vessel.
Question: Who's got the best food?
Answer: Top choices in Europe would include AmaWaterways, Viking River Cruises and Uniworld.
Question: Are river cruises suitable for disabled passengers?
Answer. Not really, although some riverships do have elevators, typically between the main deck and the restaurant. Some have elevators between [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] all decks, and a few riverships have wheelchair-accessible cabins. Well to keep in mind, though, that it's on land where most problems arise, with many historic continental European cities having cobbled streets, steps with no ramps and few facilities aimed at those with disabilities.
Question: What's the general demographic for river cruises?
Answer: River cruises tend to appeal to those wanting to experience the heart of a country and its people instead of simply traveling through it. That is why river cruising is such a keenly immersive experience.
Question: Since there's a new destination every day, what's the deal on excursions?
Answer: A real river cruise plus--excursions are often included in the overall price of the package, although this depends on the operator. Always--to repeat, always-- read the fine print when [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] you book any cruise, whether a river cruise or an ocean-going one.

The large mausoleum near the entrance to New Mount Sinai Cemetery was designed to capture the sun.Dominating the back wall is a window crafted of more than 3,500 pieces of stained glass. As the sun shines through the window 鈥?20 feet across and 17 feet high 鈥?various shades of yellow, blue and red cascade onto the walls of the chapel, surrounded by crypts and niches with the capacity to hold the remains of more than 1,000 people.Earlier this summer, the sun took an even more active role at the mausoleum when a large array of solar panels was switched on.鈥淓conomically, we think it鈥檚 a wonderful thing. Ecologically, we think it鈥檚 a wonderful thing as well,鈥?said cemetery board member Dick Brickson.The panels sit in a field just southeast of the mausoleum. The rooftop design of the building would not accommodate them.鈥淥ur goal was to have a location that would be visible but not obtrusive,鈥?Brickson said of the solar panels, the newest addition to the 52-acre Jewish cemetery in south St. Louis County.鈥淚 think, and some other people think, it looks kind of space age,鈥?said Daniel Brodsky, executive director of New Mount Sinai. 鈥淒espite the fact that we鈥檙e a 19th-century cemetery, we鈥檙e on the leading edge of technology.鈥漈he board of [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] the 160-year-old nonprofit cemetery is charged with watching the bottom line. With plans to use the community mausoleum more frequently, including offering evening concerts in the 200-seat chapel, how best to tackle power bills averaging $300 a month?Look to the sky.Brickson was familiar with solar. He serves on the board at Crossroads College Preparatory School in the Central West End. Solar panels were installed there during an expansion a few years ago.鈥淚 had experience working through the process and negotiated that deal for Crossroads,鈥?Brickson said. So when he joined the board of Mount Sinai in March 2012, Brickson became point man for the cemetery鈥檚 solar panel project.Solar power had been discussed from time to time at the cemetery, but not seriously considered because of the cost. That changed when Ameren Missouri offered rebates as part of a renewable [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] energy standard voters approved in 2008. The cemetery was one of the last to get into the $91.9 million solar rebate program before all the money was spoken for by the end of last year. A lawsuit was filed in June by a state environmental group asking a judge to force the state鈥檚 largest investor-owned utility companies to continue the rebates.Brodsky said the $50,000 rebate for a 25-kilowatt system makes it an affordable alternative energy option for New Mount Sinai.鈥淥ur bottom line was $20,000,鈥?Brodsky said, including a fence that will be built to discourage visitors from getting too close. The array of panels, resembling a satellite parked on the lawn of the [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] immaculate grounds, should pay for itself in five to six years, Brodsky said.鈥淲e should have a zero bill to Ameren going most months,鈥?he said. If that鈥檚 the case, the 20-year expected lifespan of the solar panels should net the cemetery about $50,000.Scott Eirich has been cemetery caretaker since 1980, a job his dad and grandfather had before him.While a 98-year run of family caretaking adds pride and efficiency, a business does have to change with the times, Eirich said, and the cemetery is no exception.鈥淭his makes sense,鈥?Eirich said, looking at the solar array, which measures 85 feet long by 65 feet wide. Brodsky said the cemetery still has 300 years worth of burial space, so the solar panels are not an intrusion.The cemetery would consider doing more solar panels if rebates resume, Brodsky said, pointing to a stone building with tiled roof once known as House of Comfort.It was a place of rest for weary travelers who made daylong trips by horse-dra
