Washington (CNN) - Nearly lost in the chaotic last few days, Kate Spade Bag the dueling House and Senate gave fast-track approval to at least one immigration bill - a measure extending 1,000 more special visas to Afghan citizens who have been working for the United States.
Under current law, 3,000 so-called Special Immigrant Visas were available this year to Afghanistan citizens who have worked as U.S. interpreters or in other key roles. Anyone who qualifies technically Kate Spade Shoes has until the end of September to apply, but demand has swelled and all 3,000 spots have already been given out or designated.

That has left scores of Afghans associated with the United States at risk for retaliation but with no access to protection in America.
鈥?These are) people whose lives are in the balance, they are literally being watched by the Taliban,鈥?said Katherine Kate Spade Outlet Reisner of the Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project, which also works on issues involving Afghanistan. 鈥淲ithout a supply of visas to work with, (the State Department) would not be able to provide relief to people who have earned it and need it desperately.鈥?
The House passed the visa expansion Wednesday but the measure was nearly smothered at the last-minute in the Senate. Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions put a hold on the measure, according to Reisner and to a Senate Democratic leadership aide. Sessions' office did not respond to CNN鈥檚 questions, but Kate Spade Outlet Online Friday the hold was removed and the Senate passed the bill unanimously.
鈥淎midst all the partisanship and rancor in the waning days of Congress, a life-saving bill was passed with bipartisan support,鈥?cheered Becca Heller, who heads the Iraqi Refugee Kate Spade Handbags Outlet Assistance Project.
Allowing the additional Afghan workers into the United States would cost an estimated $66 million, largely because of refugee benefits triggered by their status. The measure pays for that by adding an additional $1 to the processing fee for some visas and border-crossing identification cards.
The bill is the latest in a series of visa extensions for both Iraqi and Afghan workers Kate Spade Sale who have put themselves and their families in danger by working for the United States in sometimes hostile territory. Advocates estimate that they will likely need another round of visas for the Afghan interpreters next year.

WASHINGTON 鈥?Forty years ago this week, Richard Nixon聽resigned the presidency, brought down by a coverup of what he famously described as a "third-rate burglary." The trials, political fights and subsequent prosecutions that wracked the country in 1973 and 1974 changed American politics forever, undermining faith in leadership and setting the stage for the transformative presidencies of Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan.If there ever was an Celine Bags age of innocence in how Americans viewed their government, Watergate ended it. Even today, four decades later, there are arguments about whether Nixon did what most presidents did and just got caught, or whether he stands alone in the annals of corruption in high office.Nixon resigned Aug. 9, 1974, before he could be impeached by the House of Representatives. Repercussions from a 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee's headquarters in the Watergate Hotel, which had not gained much political traction during Nixon's 1972 landslide re-election over George McGovern, became the genesis of his demise.A spate of new books, some of them based on recently released or re-examined tapes from the Nixon White House, have come out in time for the 40th anniversary. Chief among them is former Nixon White House Counsel John Dean's "The Nixon Defense 鈥斅燱hat Hew Knew and When He Knew It." The 746-page tome recounts hundreds of White House conversations caught by Nixon's infamous taping system, some of them largely unexamined in previous books and articles. In the end, Dean, who went to jail for his crimes and testified against Nixon in Watergate congressional hearings and prosecutions, concludes that whatever defense Nixon had fortunately failed for the sake of the country.Once in Nixon's inner circle, Dean has become Nixon's most ardent critics over the past 40 years.It's not the only Nixon book now out in time for the 40th anniversary. Ken Hughes' "Chasing Shadows 鈥斅燭he Nixon Tapes, the Chennault Affair and the Origins of Watergate," is about Nixon's alleged actions in attempting to interfere with then-President Lyndon B. Johnson's 1968 negotiations to end the War in Vietnam. Hughes has been working on the Nixon tapes for 14 years in the University of Virginia's Miller Center Presidential Recordings Program.Another new book, "The Nixon Tapes," is based mostly on what Nixon said about foreign policy on the tapes. It is authored by Rice University historian Douglas Brinkley and Texas A M University-Central Texas professor Luke A. Nichter.In addition, veteran journalist Elizabeth Drew's "Washington Journal: Reporting Watergate and Buy Celine Bags Richard Nixon's Downfall," written in 1975, is being re-published with fresh reporting. It's a refresher for those who lived through Nixon's resignation and a primer for anyone too young to remember the tumult that a "third-rate burglary" brought to the country. (Chuck Raasch)BY THE NUMBERS:4 - Months John Dean spent in prison. The former Nixon White House counsel's original sentence of 1-4 years for obstruction of justice was reduced after he cooperated with congressional committees and prosecutors investigating Watergate.20 - Years in jail given to Watergate conspirator, G. Gordon Liddy. In 1977, the newly elected Jimmy Carter reduced the sentence to eight years, and with credit for time served, Liddy ended up serving four years and six months.43 - The number of people indicted, prosecuted or jailed for Celine UK Outlet crimes related to Watergate; some were acquitted. The number is according to the Huffington Post's recent accounting. Others, including the Washington Post, have historically put the number at about 40.2005 - The year that W. Mark Felt, associate director of the FBI in 1973, admitted he was the "Deep Throat" source for Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. Felt died in 2008.HE SAID IT: "I never doubted that Nixon was the ringleader and driving force behind the Watergate crimes and mind-set." 鈥擝ob聽Woodward, in Sunday's Washington Post.HOT LINKS:鈥⒙犫€⒙犫€⒙犫€擳his report was compiled by Post-Dispatch political reporter聽Kevin McDermott.

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 Louis Vuitton Siracusa 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 Louis Vuitton Sistina 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 Louis Vuitton Speedy 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.

We found your article, Make a Splash very ironic in light of the fact that Olympia and Porte-Monnaie Thurston County seriously lack public swimming facilities. There is no public swimming pool. The saltwater parks are polluted. And many of the lakes in the area are off-limits to swimmers; and the ones that are open often have duck feces and are crowded and dirty.It s pathetic to see crowds of people trying to cool off Pochette Louis Vuitton in the splash fountain downtown Olympia or the artificial creek in front of the Children s Museum. Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton Olympia needs a public swimming pool! We should follow the example of Metro Parks in Tacoma, with not one, but two, excellent outdoor water parks and pools. When we want to cool off, we head to Tacoma.Steve and Lourdes Collins Olympia

Coming off last year鈥檚 Big 12 championship, as the Bears gear up for their Aug. 31 season opener against SMU at McLane Stadium.
The No. 10 Bears will open preseason drills at 2:50 p.m. at the Highers Athletics Complex practice Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen fields.
With all the excitement surrounding the program, Baylor coach Art Briles said it鈥檚 important to keep his team focused during the next four weeks of practice leading up to the SMU game.
鈥淢y whole deal is you can鈥檛 get excited without preparation,鈥?Briles said. 鈥淪o our goal right now is we鈥檙e just going to prepare. We can鈥檛 go over and slap each other on the back and hug necks and smile and grin, and then go out there and not perform.鈥?
The Bears will practice Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday before holding the 鈥淢eet the Bears鈥?intrasquad scrimmage at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the Highers Athletics Complex. Following the scrimmage, Baylor players and coaches will be available for autographs at the Allison Indoor Practice Facility.
Along with the veterans, Baylor signed 20 freshmen and four junior college transfers in its 2014 class. Seven of those players enrolled at Baylor in January and participated in spring drills.
Additionally, offensive lineman Ishmael Wilson transferred from Texas A M to Baylor. Wilson will have to sit out this year under NCAA Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy transfer rules unless he鈥檚 granted a hardship waiver to play immediately.
While many players established themselves as starters during the spring, several positions will likely be contested throughout August.
Much of the focus will be at linebacker and the secondary. Fifth-year walk-on Collin Brence emerged from the spring as the starting nickelback but will be pushed by sophomore Patrick Levels. Sophomore weakside linebacker Aiavion Edwards is battling redshirt freshmen Taylor Young and Raaquan Davis.
鈥淏oth Taylor and Aiavion had a good spring,鈥?Briles said. 鈥淭aylor has instincts and loves the game. He knows how to get around the ball. Collin (Brence) is a smart, tough kid. (Junior college transfer) Grant Campbell is another guy we think will be able to get into the mix before it鈥檚 over.鈥?
Both cornerback positions are up for grabs with sophomores Xavien Howard, Terrence Singleton and Ryan Reid and junior college transfer Chris Sanders among the top contenders.
Junior safety Terrell Burt is the only returning starter in the secondary. Sophomore Orion Stewart emerged from the spring with a starting safety spot while sophomore Taion Sells and redshirt freshman Alfred Pullom will also battle for time. Redshirt freshman safety Austin Jupe transferred to UTSA.
Offensively, sophomore Tre鈥橵on Armstead and junior Gus Penning are vying for time at tight end. Juniors LaQuan McGowan and Blake Muir are locked in a battle at left guard. Muir, a native of Australia, sat out last season under NCAA rules after transferring from Hawaii.
鈥淏lake鈥檚 a guy that鈥檚 got to contribute,鈥?Briles said. 鈥淲e didn鈥檛 bring him here to teach us the Australian fight song.鈥?
Several players who missed all or part of spring practice with injuries have been cleared to play, including offensive tackle Spencer Drango (back injury), receiver Davion Hall (shoulder), linebacker Bryce Hager (groin), defensive end Sam Ukwuachu (torn Louis Vuitton Portemonn pectoral) and Burt (shoulder).
鈥淲e鈥檙e geared up and ready to go,鈥?Briles said. 鈥淚t鈥檚 that time of year. The hiding鈥檚 over. It鈥檚 time to come out of the shadows and play. We鈥檙e very excited about 2014 without any question because our guys have learned to win at the highest level and have worked diligently on and off the football field to keep our name good, and that鈥檚 what it鈥檚 all about.鈥?

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 Milticolor monogramme ceinture 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 Trunks et sacs Damier ceinture 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 GDP and the better-than-expected 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 Chaussures Louis Vuitton 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.

"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?

Q: Recently, a new manager was transferred to our store from a different location. 鈥淕wen鈥?apparently [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-speedy-73]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] wants everything to be just like it was at her previous workplace. Instead of trying to understand how we do things here, she has turned the place upside down with one change after another.
The employees constantly complain that they can鈥檛 keep up with all these changes. Morale is at an all-time low, and customer service is declining. I would like to help solve this problem, but I鈥檓 not sure what to do. Should I confront Gwen and let her know how everyone feels?
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.

is the independent video game studio behind 2006鈥檚 鈥淔low,鈥?2009鈥檚 鈥淔lower鈥?and 2012鈥檚 鈥淛ourney.鈥?The developer is known for mapping out games according to what they want players to feel, rather than by establishing specific game mechanics. Still, 鈥淛ourney,鈥?which launched on March 13, 2012, has won numerous accolades. It won six awards at the Game Developers Conference in 2013, including Best Game Design, Best Audio and Game of the Year.
鈥淢y intention isn鈥檛 to make the game that鈥檚 going to generate the most revenue possible. I grew up with games. It changed my life. It changed my [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] social relationships with my friends. It defined my childhood. It鈥檚 something I really cherished,鈥?Chen said of the success of 鈥淛ourney.鈥?
"Seeing games become more of a young person thing, I feel like a toy I grew up with has been left behind. I don鈥檛 want to. I want this thing to be respected by adults. I want this thing to be growing with me.聽It鈥檚 important to have games that could be more nuanced and reflective of the real world and relevant to adults,鈥?Chen said.
None of thatgamecompany鈥檚 projects possess any dialogue. Instead, they鈥檙e driven by compelling music and [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] scenic graphics that allow players to create their own experience and interpretation of his company鈥檚 titles.
鈥淟anguage is very deceiving. In certain languages, there is certain vocabulary that doesn鈥檛 exist in other languages. It totally changes how people feel about things,鈥?he said. 鈥淏eing a Chinese man working on games, particularly console gaming, in order to find something that would really resonate with people, I had to find something that was really primal, very universal. I drew a lot of inspiration from Pixar, how a film can be well-loved by all cultures. It鈥檚 because they always talk about the fundamental things 鈥?family, peace.鈥?Chen鈥檚 favorite Pixar movie is 2004鈥檚 鈥淭he Incredibles,鈥?a heart-warming film about a superhero family.
鈥淲hen we鈥檙e working on games, I like the fact that there are no words, so we can focus on what is more primal. A lot of time when you don鈥檛 speak, the feeling is more pure.鈥?
Though his studio has received positive attention and what most would consider commercial success, does Chen still consider thatgamecompany to be an indie brand?
鈥淚 was indie when we started eight years ago. But today, indie is very difficult. There are thousands of iPhone apps coming out every day. Most of these apps are made by individuals in their spare time. Are they indie? If they are, how are they different from us? It鈥檚 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] weird. Indie is not cool anymore,鈥?Chen said. 鈥淏ut there鈥檚 something romantic and exciting about indie, trying something really new. My definition of indie is that it鈥檚 financially not proven. Basically, if someone makes 鈥楩lappy Bird,鈥?and it鈥檚 already proven to be financially successful, and someone makes a clone, is he indie? I don鈥檛 think so. You already know it will make money. It鈥檚 soulless. There鈥檚 no heart. It鈥檚 about the heart.鈥?
Chen is adamant that financial success was never the company鈥檚 primary goal.
鈥淲ith 鈥楯ourney鈥?and 鈥楩lower鈥?we鈥檝e never seen games like this in the past. We don鈥檛 know if it鈥檚 going to work. I believe they will work, because these emotions are needed in the industry. Even with our current project, it鈥檚 a pretty indie project. We鈥檙e trying something no one has done in the past. There鈥檚 a lot of risk involved, but it鈥檚 really exciting.鈥?

But when all else fails, she boils it down to one sentence: 鈥淭his is just an awesome program.鈥?br>
 
Considering the numbers alone, it鈥檚 easy to take Morton at her word. The program hires 225 young people between the ages of 14 and 17 to work at 100 or more local businesses for six weeks each summer. This year, there were 268 young people on a waiting list.
 
The program, which is implemented by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government鈥檚 Division of Youth Services, was created to provide the youth with 鈥渞eal and meaningful鈥?work experience 鈥?something that is increasingly important in helping them discover such goals as going to college and finding full-time employment, she said.
 
Job shadowing, mentoring and career guidance are important features of the program, as are the work readiness and life skills workshops that go along it.
The youth 鈥?whose families must meet specific income guidelines 鈥?work 20 hours a week, in June and July. They are paid through LFUCG, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] so there鈥檚 no cost to the participating businesses. Child care centers, offices, nursing homes and horse farms are just a few of the work settings.
 
鈥淭he most beneficial thing I鈥檝e seen come out of this program is that the youth are motivated to earn their own money,鈥?Morton said. 鈥淚 love seeing the youths鈥?faces when they pick up their first check. It鈥檚 priceless.鈥?br>
 
Jhamiel Clay, a Lafayette High School sophomore, was assigned to BGADD as part of the Lexington Summer Youth Employment Program. (Photo by Tab Patterson)
Youth worker Takia Huggins-Smith agreed that making her own money is exciting but said there鈥檚 an added benefit.
 
鈥淭he program is good for helping you learn to budget, too, because whenever you get paid, you think you鈥檙e going to have more than you really do,鈥?said Huggins-Smith, a Henry Clay High School junior who works for the Bluegrass Area Development District, mostly in aging services. 鈥淚 already had [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] my first check spent before I got it. Next check, I鈥檒l budget my spending a little better.鈥?br>
 
Jhamiel Clay, a sophomore at Lafayette also assigned to BGADD, has realized still another benefit 鈥?one that can鈥檛 be measured in dollars and cents: navigating public transportation to get to and from work, as well as working with other people in a professional setting. The latter was the easy part, he said.
 
鈥淚t has really helped me a lot, meeting people,鈥?he said.
 
The young people aren鈥檛 the only ones who benefit from the Summer Youth Employment Program. Businesses, which have the opportunity to contribute to the 鈥渃ommunity and the future of the young people within it,鈥?also reap rewards.
 
鈥淚t鈥檚 a win-win situation for us,鈥?said Lydia Jacobs, program specialist for the Bluegrass Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living, who along with Jamie Peck oversees Huggins-Smith, Clay and one other youth worker, Celena Gray. 鈥淭hey are a huge help 鈥?a huge help.鈥?br>
 
Jacobs said BGADD鈥檚 youth workers primarily perform clerical duties 鈥?filing, making copies, faxing documents, etc. 鈥淚t鈥檚 really endless what they can do. Some of them have to be taught, and that鈥檚 fine with us,鈥?she added.
 
鈥淏usinesses get to see what we see on a regular basis when we work with youth,鈥?Morton said. 鈥淭hey are able to mentor a youth, and they love it. I love doing site visits at businesses because this is when you realize that the business supervisor is committed to the purpose of the program. They are very [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] proud of the work the youth has done.
 
Some of the participating businesses even find employees through the program.
 
鈥淒ogtown is one of my favorite sites because over the past seven years, they have hired every summer youth worker we have sent them, ages 16 and above,鈥?Morton said. 鈥淭anbark is another great location. Tanbark has hired summer youth workers from the past and given them training that will assist them in future jobs.鈥?br>
 
Morton doesn鈥檛 hesitate to encourage businesses to get involved. 鈥淭his is an opportunity for everyone to give back to the community and the future of the young people within it.鈥?br>

A post on Marlin detective Rob Douglas鈥?Facebook page centered around how it frustrates him to go grocery shopping at the first of the month with people who receive public assistance or food stamps but have tattoos or expensive tire rims on their vehicles.
The rant ended with: 鈥淚 promise, if I ever snap and go on a killing spree, it will be in a supermarket on the first.鈥?
City officials are unsure when the post was first published, but Marlin City Manager R.C. Fletcher said he was made aware of the post Sunday. The Tribune-Herald received a screenshot of the post over the weekend. The paper has been unable to locate Douglas for comment.
Douglas, who has been with the department for five years, was placed on administrative leave Monday and will remain on leave until the internal police investigation concludes, Allen said.
The department doesn鈥檛 plan to request aid from the Texas Rangers because it appears there鈥檚 nothing illegal about the post, Fletcher said.
Fletcher said Douglas may have violated the city鈥檚 policy regarding appropriate online publishing, but the situation is still under investigation. The Tribune-Herald requested a copy of the city鈥檚 policy on online publishing and were told to request it under the state鈥檚 public records laws. The paper has done so. A copy of the policy has yet to be furnished by the city.
鈥淲e鈥檙e at the very beginning of the investigation concerning this,鈥?Fletcher said.

When Google entered the smart home market in February 2014 with its purchase of Nest, both companies sought to assure customers that their privacy would be protected. Yet questions about Google Nest鈥檚 data collection policy, and what if anything the company plans to do with that information, are being asked again with the announcement Tuesday that a new [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] developer program will make it possible for other companies鈥?devices to communicate with Nest鈥檚 smoke alarm and Learning Thermostat.
Mercedez-Benz, IFTTT, Jawbone, LIFX, Whirlpool, Chamberlain and Google have all partnered with Nest to create apps and other features that will be compatible with smartphones. Google and Chamberlain have yet to unveil any products, but customers can now purchase bright-red LIFX lights that could alert a hearing-impaired customer that his smoke alarm is going off. Google Now, for instance, will allow customers to pre-set their thermostat with only their voice and, depending on whether a customer is entering or leaving his/her home, a Chamberlain garage door opener can set the Nest thermostat to 鈥渁way鈥?mode.
(A full list of the currently available options and their capabilities can be found .)
鈥淚t鈥檚 not just integration for integration鈥檚 sake, or connectivity just to connect,鈥?Matt Rogers, a Nest co-founder and head of engineering, told Tuesday. 鈥淚t鈥檚 鈥榃hat are great user benefits we could do?鈥?Those are the kinds of things we鈥檙e going to highlight. That said, it鈥檚 a developer program that鈥檚 opened up very widely. So whoever wants to build stuff can build stuff.鈥?
Google and Nest have said they hope to make the world a better, safer place via smart home technology, but they've said little about how they plan to use the data collected from users' homes. That question became even more pertinent with Friday鈥檚 announcement that , the maker of video camera systems for home monitoring.
In a statement about the Dropcam acquisition, Rogers said that Nest data 鈥渨on鈥檛 be shared with anyone (including Google) without a customer鈥檚 permission and that they will not share a customer鈥檚 personal information with another developer nor permit them 鈥渢o retain more than 10 trailing days 聽of data.鈥?The company has also released a white paper report analyzing anonymized information about carbon monoxide readings in a small sample of homes.
鈥淣o one鈥檚 had as many connected devices in our space before,鈥?Rogers told Ars. 鈥淪o in essence, we鈥檙e actually doing the biggest scientific study to date. All the government [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] studies that were done when carbon monoxide was becoming a big deal and people started paying attention to it were in a couple hundred homes. This is a couple hundred thousand homes. It鈥檚 a completely different order of magnitude. It covers the whole country, all different demographics and geographies. We鈥檙e learning a lot about how homes work and can actually affect the laws now.鈥?
Nest has been adamant that its ability to peek into customers' homes does not give Google the same insight, even though it's owned by the search giant. Google itself has broken sensitive promises in the past: when real-life customers found their names and faces in advertisements, when a user鈥檚 most frequent contacts were made publicly viewable, and when it began storing vast amounts of customer data while removing the option to opt out.
Marco Chiappetta, a Forbes contributor, acknowledged that the smartphone features are tempting and that Google鈥檚 鈥渄o no evil鈥?mantra is comforting, but he noted that the idea of one company having so much leeway inside customers鈥?homes is disturbing.
鈥淚鈥檓 not a technophobe... I embrace technology every chance I get, but giving a single company as large, powerful, intelligent and aggressive as Google the means to see, hear and track virtually every aspect of our lives gives me pause,鈥?he . 鈥淚鈥檓 not saying Google would do anything nefarious with so many tentacles in our homes, but the possibility does exist. Even if it鈥檚 not the company itself, who knows what a shady character inside Google could do with access to all of that data.鈥?

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.

Motorists heading south on Dexter Avenue North toward downtown can no longer make right turns onto westbound Mercer. (Steve Ringman / Seattle Times)
The city s decision to prohibit right turns from Dexter Avenue onto Mercer is a stark illustration of its disconnection with and outright disdain [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton SC Bag[/url] for the large majority of taxpayers ["," Local News, Aug. 3].
For all we know, this might be good traffic engineering. But to implement it without asking, and to do it in reaction to a couple of accidents, reeks of arrogance and of the sort of collective punishment I remember from grade school.
I must ask this city s government: What have you done for drivers lately, other than try to raise our costs and obstruct our progress? You kowtow to 3 or 4 percent of people who commute by bicycle, while pavement isn t repaired and [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] traffic signals are completely out of synchronization.
Mayor Ed Murray needs to remember that we defeated his predecessor, Mayor McSchwinn, and the City Council needs to remember that we are so [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Sistina[/url] satisfied with their stewardship that we redistricted them.
In King County, we rejected a bailout of the bus system, and in the city, it appears that we re going to reject an attempt to impose a major tax increase in the name of parks.
Is it dawning on any of these people that the natives are getting restless? If not, then it should.

He has persistently come to City Hall on a regular basis to express his support and seek resolution to this intersection, City Councilor Mike Foley said of Laroche, whom he asked councilors to think about before casting their votes.
I feel it s a tremendous improvement to that area to support this project, Foley said.
Laroche did not attend the meeting and could not be reached [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] for comment Monday.
Aside from the crash that killed Holly Laroche in 2004, the vast majority of accidents within the triangle 鈥?formed by Main Street, Cumberland Street and Harnois Avenue 鈥?are minor. But there are a lot of them.
The 79 accidents that occurred from 2011 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] to 2013, where Warren Avenue meets the Cumberland Street section of the triangle, gave it the highest crash rate in Cumberland County and the third-highest in the state, according to the Maine Department of Transportation.
The proposed project would add a traffic light at every intersection within the triangle 鈥?at Main and Cumberland streets, Cumberland Street and Warren Avenue, Cumberland Street and Harnois Avenue, and Harnois Avenue and Main Street.
The proposal came from a report done by a group of city and state officials in 2005, not long after the accident that killed Holly Laroche.
The city has been seeking funding since then.
The $1.8 million project has already gotten preliminary approval for funding, most of which would come from the federal government, supported by matches from the state and city, and has now risen to the top of the priority list for the Portland Area Comprehensive Transportation System, which requires communities to endorse projects before moving forward.
City Engineer Eric Dudley said construction could start in 2015 or 2016.
That s quick these days, City Councilor John O Hara said at the meeting Monday.
Big changes in that area are coming soon. Welcome changes, he 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.
A $50 million roads project is slated to fix some of the roads in the area.

These "Little Rascals" aren't so little anymore!On August 5, 1994, a new generation of children was introduced to the "Our Gang" crew -- as Alfalfa, Spanky, Buckwheat, Darla and the rest of the "He-Man Woman Haters Club" hit the big screen in an updated adaptation of the classic TV series.20 years later, the child actors that filled the film are full grown adults ... and hot ones at that!Click "Launch Gallery" above to see how much they've changed through the years and keep reading for our exclusive interview with Blake McIver, who played Waldo [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-long-51]Portefeuille long[/url] Aloysius Johnston III back in the day.
"We made [Little Rascals] so quickly," Blake recalls. "Where we really became friends was after the movie had wrapped and then we did the press tours together, that was really fun. We got to travel, got to do all this cool stuff. And since we were kids, we would do things like go to a press event at FAO Schwartz. That was like the greatest thing in the world!""We did [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/echarpe-louis-vuitton-14]锟斤拷charpe Louis Vuitton[/url] keep in touch for a little while thanks to our moms. A lot of the cast had moved to L.A. to work and to continue auditioning after the movie," he continues. "But then we sort of lost touch as school went on and everybody went their separate ways. About four years ago we got back in touch thanks to Facebook, we all sort of found each other."McIver made headlines last year when his part-time job as a go-go dancer in West Hollywood was uncovered -- something he was doing to finance his new album."It was really weird because I had done it in complete anonymity for about six months. I was just putting cash away to produce this record, that was my only goal," he says of his dancing gig. "I needed quick money, I don't have the money, I can make money silently and make music.

NEW YORK (AP) - Travelers, prepare to pay more for your flight.The average roundtrip ticket within the U.S., including taxes, reached $509.15 in the first six months of this year, up nearly $14 from the same period last year. Domestic airfare continues to outpace inflation, rising 2.7 percent compared [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] to the 2.1 percent gain in the Consumer Price Index.Airfare has gone up 10.7 percent in the past five years - after adjusting for inflation - according to an Associated Press analysis of data from the Airlines Reporting Corp., which processes ticket transactions for airlines and more than 9,400 travel agencies, including websites such as Expedia and Orbitz.The formula for rising fares seems simple, but it eluded the airlines for years: Match the supply of seats to passenger demand."Airlines have reduced the number of seats while more people want to fly because of the economic recovery. All this leads to higher airfares," says Chuck Thackston, managing director of data and analytics at Airlines Reporting Corp. "This trend in airfares is likely to continue for the near future, as the economy continues to grow."Most fliers are traveling for work. And when the economy is strong, they do more flying. Data released by the government last week shows that economic growth bounced back after a brutal winter, businesses are creating jobs at a steady pace and consumer spending is on the rise.The airfare figures don't take into account the slew of fees travelers now face for checking bags, getting extra legroom, boarding early or purchasing a pair of headphones. Those fees now bring in $3.3 billion a year for U.S. airlines and have helped them return consistent annual profits for the last four years.Baggage fees and some others were introduced in 2008 to offset losses from rising fuel prices. However, this year airlines are actually paying less for fuel - $2.96 a gallon so far, 7.2 percent less than last year, when adjusted for inflation.Passengers aren't seeing any of those savings. One reason is that airlines no longer need to entice fliers with lower fares. There are simply fewer choices today.A wave of consolidation that started in 2008 has left four U.S. airlines - American Airlines, Delta Air [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] Lines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines - controlling more than 80 percent of the domestic air-travel market. Discount airlines such as Allegiant Air and Spirit Airlines have grown at breakneck speed but still carry a tiny fraction of overall passengers.That control of the market has enabled the bigger airlines to charge more for tickets and not worry about being undercut by the completion. Those higher fares, in turn, have led to record profits. In April, May and June, the four largest U.S. airlines earned a combined $2.9 billion. Airlines are earning so much money that they are starting to pay investors dividends - something unheard of in an industry that just a decade ago was struggling with a wave of bankruptcies.Airlines for America, the industry's U.S. trade and lobbying group, says passengers should blame the government, not the carriers, for higher fares. Last month, increased fees linked to the Transportation Security Administration took effect. Fliers will [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] now pay a flat fee of $5.60 each way, up from $2.50 each way for nonstop flights and $5 for trips with connections.But taxes and government fees still remain a small portion of what passengers pay. On a $500 roundtrip ticket between New York and Seattle, they make up 12 percent of the price.

Eddy Hartenstein will step down Monday as publisher and CEO of the Los Angeles Times to become non-executive chairman of the Tribune Publishing board. Griffin and Hartenstein will serve [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/url] on the board along with four outside directors.
The primary task of the board is to supervise management hire the CEO, compensate the CEO, plan for the succession of the CEO and if need be, fire the CEO, said Thomas Lys, an accounting professor and corporate governance expert at Northwestern s Kellogg School of Management. This is the direct representation of shareholders, which are the owners of the corporation.
In addition to Griffin and Hartenstein, the board is composed of David Dibble, the former top technology executive at Yahoo; Philip Franklin, chief financial officer of , a Chicago-based manufacturer of electronic components; Renetta McCann, chief talent officer at Chicago-based [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/url] ad agency ; and Ellen Taus, chief financial officer of the Rockefeller Foundation and a former publishing executive.
Griffin, 54, a longtime magazine executive, became the inaugural CEO of Tribune Publishing in April. Hartenstein s successor at the Los Angeles Times is expected to be named within weeks.
It s been [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/url] an interesting journey, Hartenstein said. It s one that I can look back on here, not only on Monday but for years to come, that speaks to the power of the various Tribune brands in their marketplace. I salute the women and men of Tribune Co., wherever they are markets big, medium and small for staying with it.

WASHINGTON (August 5, 2014) The growing wealth gap in the United States is complicating the rebound from the recession, making the economy more prone to boom-bust cycles, the Standard & Poor's rating agency says.
The [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] rising concentration of income among the top 1 percent of earners led S&P to cut its growth estimates for the economy to a 2.5 percent annual pace over the next decade, down from a forecast five years ago of a 2.8 percent rate.
Part of the problem is that educational achievement has stalled in recent decades.
S&P estimates that the U.S. economy would grow annually by an additional half a percentage point or [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] $105 billion over the next five years, if the average the American worker [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] had completed just one more year of school.
The S&P report advises against using the tax code to try to narrow the gap, saying higher taxes on the wealthy could remove incentives for people to work and cause businesses to hire fewer employees. Instead, it suggests that greater access to education would help ease wealth disparities.

After one festival-goer shouted, Obama s daughter is here, lots of people tried to get a glimpse, Lomas said. Everyone was trying to get in to see her, but those Secret Service guys just formed a wall, she said.
One of Lomas friends, Justin Starns, 17, also from Valparaiso, said he spoke to Malia Obama.
She was just saying, yeah, she was here for Chance. She said she likes Chance, Starns said. It was just so cool to have her in the crowd so [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Audacieuse[/url] casual like that. I think the Secret Service did a pretty good job.

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.

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.

RENTON Two familiar Seattle Seahawks were back in football pads. Safety Kam Chancellor and left tackle Russell Okung practiced with the team for the first time since both underwent surgery during the offseason. They returned to practice in limited action Monday, participating only in position [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] drills. They will be brought along slowly with Chancellor coming off hip surgery in early spring and Okung having surgery on his left foot. Having Chancellor and Okung return to the field highlighted how few health issues the Seahawks face going into this season compared to this point last year. Our guys had a fantastic offseason, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. They came to camp in great shape, and we are hoping to be fast and ready to go Thursday night. The Seahawks entered their first exhibition game last season with nine starters battling injuries, including receivers Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice, tight end Zach Miller and pass rushers Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Chris Clemons.The only regular starters currently out with injuries are linebackers Bobby Wagner and Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith. Carroll said neither are likely to play Thursday at the Denver Broncos but they aren t expected to miss extended time. Wagner is dealing with a hamstring injury and Smith is recovering from offseason ankle surgery.Offensive lineman James Carpenter (calf) was out Monday, but Carroll said he should return in the next couple of days. We know that there are a number of guys on the verge of coming back, Carroll said. Having Harvin healthy and practicing has been a story in itself. Monday marked just over a year to the day when Harvin announced he would undergo hip surgery, forcing him to sit for all but one regular-season game last season.Harvin has been given a few off days as the Seahawks monitor his recovery, but is predominately an active participant in practices as he develops chemistry with quarterback Russell Wilson. We are trying to figure this out with these short weeks how to monitor him just right, Carroll said. He ll practice in kind of a rotation fashion in these next couples weeks. It s really good for Russell to work with him and figure him out because he is that different from other guys. Rookie wide receiver Paul Richardson returned to practice Monday, wearing a non-contact jersey, but said he is healed from a shoulder injury. My shoulder is fine now, he said. I m full go tomorrow. Coach Carroll and the training staff are just making sure everybody is on the same page and that I m healing. That doesn t mean the Seahawks haven t been without some injury blows. They lost tight end Anthony McCoy and defensive [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] tackle Jesse Williams for the season. Both players also missed all of last season.Rookie receiver Kevin Norwood has missed almost a week with a foot injury. Carroll said the team is waiting for more information, but it s going to be a bit. PATIENCE WITH LYNCHMarshawn Lynch sat out June minicamp with an ankle injury, but Carroll said the focus on Lynch now is getting him into football shape as he participated in training camp position drills for the first time since his contract holdout. Carroll said Lynch had a very diligent (offseason) routine and regiment, but isn t in the same shape as others who participated in voluntary Organized Team Activities and the first week of training camp. We are going to take our time with him, Carroll said. We ve always been very patient with him, making sure his body is in great shape. He missed a lot of offseason with us. He did work very hard but it s still football shape he has to get in. OFFENSIVE LINE HELPThe Seahawks announced the signing of offensive tackle Wade Smith to add depth to the position. His signing came following news second-year lineman Michael Bowie had been claimed by the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Smith was a third-round draft pick for the Miami Dolphins out of Memphis in 2003 and spent the past four seasons with the Houston Texans. The Seahawks also signed offensive tackle Cory Brandon off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals. Rookie tackle Justin Britt (shoulder), who returned to practice Monday, plus Alvin Bailey and recently signed nine-year veteran Eric Winston will all be in the hunt for the Seahawks starting right offensive tackle job. We want to continue to make this position as competitive as possible, Carroll said. These guys, Wade in [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] particular, bring a lot of experience and tremendous flexibility. EXTRA POINTSRookie safety Dion Bailey was on the sideline with a walking boot on his left leg. Carroll said Bailey has a pretty good ankle sprain. Wide receiver Phil Bates left practice with an illness, Carroll said. Linebacker Bruce Irvin was out, as was defensive tackle Jordan Hill, defensive back DeShawn Shead, rookie defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, rookie linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis and cornerback Akeem Auguste. Rookie defensive end Cassius Marsh returned after missing last week with a groin injury. The Seahawks re-signed defensive tackle and Federal Way grad Andru Pulu and cut linebacker Brandon Denmark.

Sprint's had on devices like the for quite some time, and now, looking to build up on that, the company's introducing its My Wireless STS feature. The new speech-to-speech service aims to help people with speech disabilities by giving them access to an operator-assisted line every day of the week and all year round. Folks wanting to use the My Wireless STS will have to dial *787 from their device, after which a Now Network rep will start a call and repeat every spoken word -- or ones that are unclear -- depending on users choice. Relay Director, Michael Ellis, says is "the first in the industry to bring this service to market," and that the project was developed closely with the help of speech disabled communities. If you're interested in learning more, there's a mighty presser waiting on you just past the break.
Show full PR text Sprint pioneers service simplifying wireless communications for individuals with speech disabilities OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), May 18, 2012 - Sprint (NYSE: S) [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] today has made it easier for individuals with speech disabilities to initiate calls using a wireless phone. Sprint's newly launched "My Wireless STS" service enables individuals with speech disabilities to simply dial a short wireless code *787 to place an operator-assisted call. A Speech to Speech (STS) operator listens to the conversation and repeats the words of the person with a speech disability to the other party. STS users can instruct the STS operator to repeat every word spoken or to simply repeat the words that are unclear. No special equipment is needed. STS users can access the *787 service from anywhere in the country 24 hours a day, 365 days per year and at no charge to the user. "We are very excited to announce *787 a service that's tailored to the needs of STS users," said Michael Ellis, Director, Sprint Relay. "We are the first in the industry to bring this service to market, and we're pleased to have developed it in collaboration with speech disabled communities across the country." Sprint also offers "My Email Set-up" for STS users with access to email. "We know that some STS users may tire and speech may become more difficult during long calls. Our new Email Set-Up makes it easier," Ellis said. "To reduce the amount of energy needed to provide calling instructions, STS users can email that information directly [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] to the STS operator 2 to 24 hours prior to the call. This can include information such as the number to be dialed, the name of the person being called, any special instructions and subject of the call, or anything that makes it easier for the STS user to complete the call." Sprint also recently announced the availability of dedicated customer service for STS users. Sprint's STS support staff provides one-on-one assistance, training on the STS service and can assist STS users to register their calling preferences. The new STS support toll-free number is 1-877-787-1989. More information about the enhanced STS features can be found at www.sprintsts.com For its innovation and industry-leading customer service in the deaf, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] hard of hearing and speech disabled communities, Sprint has been lauded with third-party awards and endorsements. The Paisley Group National Relay TTY Performance Index ranked Sprint Relay highest in customer care and speed of service. Sprint Relay also earned ABILITY Magazine's Best Practices Award for its "spirit of inclusion" in the workplace and in the consumer marketplace." Sprint now provides relay service to 32 states and the federal government, to the country of New Zealand and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. Sprint also provides Captioned Telephone "CapTel" services to 31 states and the federal government.

So Andy Dalton becomes the next quarterback to get that massive new contract, as the Cincinnati Bengals believe he is their franchise quarterback for years to come, although everything we ve seen from him in playoff time leads us to believe this is one big mistake.
Dalton signed a six-year, $115 million extension that keeps him with the Bengals, who he has been playing for since 2011, leading the team into the postseason all three seasons, until 2020. Obviously, with the salary cap rising, deals like this seem less and less massive each time, and yet committing so [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy Round[/url] much money to a quarterback who has failed to perform under the pressure and the bright lights of the playoffs raises a question or two.
Dalton is a solid regular season quarterback, who has done well behind a very good offensive line, a good running game and being helped by one of the best defenses in the NFL. However, this kind of contract puts more pressure on him than ever before. He is no longer a guy who got picked in the second round of the draft, coming out of TCU. He is now a franchise quarterback who needs to deliver for a team with very high expectations.
Before Dalton, the Bengals made the playoffs only twice in 20 years. Since Dalton became the team s starting quarterback, regardless of how much his contribution led to that success, the Bengals have gone 30-18. They ve also been knocked out of the postseason on the first game in all three visits. Dalton has thrown just one touchdown pass in the three losses, throwing six interceptions in comparison.
According to rumors, the deal will be very similar to the one Colin Kaepernick signed with the San Francisco 49ers. Meaning? While it does yield a big pay day, it s still very team centric and revolves around bonuses. The Bengals can see how well this goes and might part ways with Dalton if things don t progress as planned. With their ability to keep their defensive players happy while not spending too much money becoming difficult, it s time for Dalton to take the next step.
Maybe the extension should have come a year later, once his $5.2 million, four-year rookie deal expired. However, teams are afraid of the Joe Flacco situation: The Ravens didn t come to terms with the quarterback in time and had to pay too much money after he led them to the Super Bowl. A good quarterback, but a $20 million a year one? Last year didn t seem like it, and the Bengals hope that their decision to move quickly will result in success and not similar disappointment.

RENTON Michael Bowie was no longer an option at right tackle this season once he sustained a significant shoulder injury on the first day of training camp.
He [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] was no longer a Seahawk once he was claimed by Cleveland over the weekend, Seattle having taken the risk of losing Bowie by waiving him with an injury designation and exposing him to waivers.
The latter development came as a surprise considering that Bowie had shown promise while starting eight games as a rookie in 2013, even if he wasn't going to play this season. Coach Pete Carroll shed some light on the issue Monday, saying Bowie's weight was a factor in the team's decision to move on.
"That's the decision we made, yeah," Carroll said. "He came in 20 pounds overweight, too."
Bowie would not have been exposed to waivers had Seattle waited until after the first cut-down date which is Aug. 26 to place him on injured reserve. By waiving him now, though, the Seahawks avoided having to hold his roster spot for three weeks.
Perhaps more importantly, they might have also sent a message as Bowie's weight was something that offensive-line coach Tom Cable back in June while discussing the competition with rookie Justin Britt.
So what was once a two-man race at right tackle suddenly looks a whole lot different with Bowie gone, veteran Eric Winston signed last week and possibly a few more players in the mix.
On Monday, the Seahawks signed Wade Smith, a versatile offensive lineman and 11-year veteran who has spent the last four seasons with Houston. Smith, 33, started all 16 games in each of the last four seasons and made the Pro Bowl in 2012.
Seattle also claimed offensive tackle Cory Brandon off waivers from the Cardinals.
"We want to continue to work to make this position as competitive as possible," Carroll said. "We have a lot of young guys at the spot. These guys Wade in particular bring a lot of experience and tremendous flexibility. He has started at five spots, so that kind of flexibility might fit with us. They're real good guys, and smart guys, so that helps us as we try to mold this thing together. We have flexibility in how we're going to do it. We're going to take our time figuring it out."
Additionally, Carroll said Alvin Bailey could be an option now that he's no longer filling in for Russell Okung at left tackle.
Norwood still out
Rookie wide receiver Kevin Norwood remains sidelined with a foot injury, and Carroll's description of the situation doesn't sound particularly promising for [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] Seattle's fourth-round pick.
"I think we're waiting for some more information," Carroll said. "We're going to take our time with him. He's not going to come back right away. It's going to be a bit."
Lynch easing in
Running back Marshawn Lynch wore his helmet and shoulder pads but did not see much action Monday, Carroll saying the team is slowly working him back in.
"We're going to take our time and make sure that we do that right," Carroll said. "We've always been very patient with him, making sure that his body is in great shape. So we're just going to bring him along. He missed a lot of offseason with us. He did work very hard. He had a very diligent routine that he went through and regiment that he went through, but it's still football shape that he's got to get into."
Monday marked Lynch's third practice since returning from his holdout.
Notes
SS Kam Chancellor and LT Russell Okung took part in individual drills during the early portion of practice, their first action of training camp. Both players had surgery over the offseason, Chancellor on his hip and Okung on his foot.
LG James Carpenter (calf) could be back as early as Tuesday, Carroll said, but it could be a bit longer for LB Bobby Wagner (hamstring). Rookie WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) practiced in a red jersey.
The Seahawks signed DT Andru Pulu and released LB Brandon Denmark and WR Ronald Johnson. Pulu, an undrafted rookie from Eastern Washington, signed with Seattle after the draft and was released in June.

Dr Allwood suggested in 2006 the patterns of life in the Pilbara could also have happened on Mars.鈥淚f life flourished so quickly on Earth, there鈥檚 a good chance life could also have gained a toehold on Mars, even if it were habitable only briefly,鈥?she wrote in 2006.

Rock formations in the Pilbara photographed [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Brea[/url] by Dr Allwood.
New technology designed by Dr Allwood allows Mars rock to be investigated down to microscopic, grain-size portions of rock.That will give the new Mars Rover a better chance to prove life existed on Mars.Dr Allwood began her geology studies at Queensland University of Technology, where she completed her Geosciences degree (with honours) in 2001.

She completed her honours year in 2002, before shifting to Sydney鈥檚 Macquarie University for her 2006 doctorate, which attracted the science world鈥檚 attention with ground-breaking research in the PIlbara.Before this she went to primary school in Brisbane, then Brisbane鈥檚 Sommerville House private girls鈥?school.Her 2006 research proved the geology of rocky reef that formed within the Pilbara 3.5 billion years ago held records of the Earth's oldest forms of life.It was this research that led her to be named minds by Cosmos magazine in 2006.In a media statement issued by the Australian Centre for Astrobiology in 2006, Abigail Allwood again made the link between her Pilbara research results and possible life on Mars.鈥淥ne of the broader implications of this work is in helping us search for traces of life on Mars and other planets,鈥?she said.That research was front page feature research in Nature, the acclaimed international science journal.Her sister, Belinda Allwood from Cairns, confirmed these details about her sister, whom she described as 鈥渆xtraordinarily brilliant鈥? but 鈥渦nassuming and very modest鈥?鈥淪he is now the first female principal investigator on a Mars Mission,鈥?Belinda said.鈥淎nd I think the first Australian citizen.

I remember being over there visiting her in 2011 or 2012 and visiting her at JPL,鈥?sister Belinda Allwood said.Belinda Allwood said she went to the Pilbara with her sister while she was researching rock samples before travelling to the States to work for NASA, seven years ago.鈥淚t was absolutely fascinating. She was looking at rock on the level of a 鈥榞rain鈥?鈥?[url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] 鈥榓 grain of rock鈥?to look for traces of organic material,鈥?she said.鈥淪o for her, the instruments that have been going up to Mars, they blast quite a large piece of rock to smithereens.鈥淎nd just give a chemical analysis of that sample- which may be a centimetre across.鈥淲hat the machine that she has developed will now do is analyse rock on a really fine scale 鈥?the level of a grain, just a few microns.鈥濃€淭hat is what PIXL will do. It can be aimed at 鈥榞rains鈥?in rock, to see what the composition is like.鈥漇even years ago Dr Allwood's Pilbara research was groundbreaking, Belinda Allwood said.鈥淲hen I was out there in the Pilbara visiting her, the rock was layered, but you could actually see the grains.鈥淎nd she would point out to me, a black grain next to grey one.鈥淎nd she would say: 鈥楾he black one might be organic in origin. It might be carbon-based鈥?鈥滺er research ultimately suggested this was the case.鈥淗er research put an end to decades of debate whether the Pilbara fossils were of organic origin, Belinda Allwood said.鈥淭hey became accepted as the oldest fossilised evidence for life on earth, 3.43 billion years old.鈥滿ost recently - in 2013 Abigail Allwood received NASA鈥檚 Lew Allen Award for Excellence 鈥?awarded to recognise 鈥渟ignificant individual accomplishments鈥?in scientific research by NASA鈥檚 Jet Propulsion Laboratory.Now, NASA鈥檚 current rover, the Curiosity Rover 鈥?which has been on Mars for more almost two years - is beginning to look at bedrock of called Mount Sharp, located in Gale Crater.The Rover team is calling the outcrop Pahrump Hills.

According to Gallup s weekly survey of economic confidence, public opinion hit a low for the year last week, and the trend has been downward since December.
There are several explanations for this. Consumer confidence is a lagging indicator that climbs and falls in response to other events. There also seems to be some politics involved, with Republicans taking a much darker view of the future than Democrats.
But an undeniable fact is that while the economy is growing, it is not growing for [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] everyone. Most of us are recovering from not just the Great Recession, but also decades of stagnant wages.
A recent found that in inflation-adjusted dollars, the median family was 20 percent poorer in 2013 than the median family of 1984. The bottom 25 percent of households 鈥?which didn t have much to begin with 鈥?fell even further [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] and controls 60 percent less wealth than it did in 1984. Meanwhile, the top 5 percent has seen a 100 percent increase in wealth in the last 30 years, and has recovered much more quickly than any other group from the financial collapse.
Those numbers should give a strong indication as to which direction the wealth of this nation has been redistributed under the economic policies implemented in the Reagan revolution.
For these last three decades, we have been promised that growth is good for everyone and that a rising tide lifts all boats. But that hasn t been true even in the good times, and when the business cycle bottoms out, people at the bottom fall further and recover more slowly than the people at the top.
This is a result of government policy and won t change without intervention.
Raising the minimum wage high enough to bring anyone with a job out of poverty is a good place to start. Extending subsidies for health care and higher education to share opportunity more equally is also important. Public infrastructure projects that would put people to work and pump money into the economy should not be put off any longer.
With 70 percent of our economy based on consumption, it is wrong to expect people struggling to provide the basics for their families to give the economy the vitality it needs to soar.
We have been waiting six years for the [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK[/url] turnaround. If this is as good as it s going to get, it s easy to understand why people don t feel rosy.

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.

Armed robbery at Mother s Foods (January 28,. 2014)
MILWAUKEE (WITI) Two of three people federally indicted for the January 28th armed robbery of Mother鈥檚 Foods (formerly Magic Foods) on N. 16th Street in Milwaukee, have been sentenced.
23-year-old Joshua Mueller was sentenced on July 30th to 15 1/2 [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] years in prison, followed by fives years of supervised released. The sentence was the result of Mueller s guilty plea to one count of interference with commerce by robbery pursuant to the Hobbs Act and one count of discharging a firearm in聽furtherance of a crime of violence.
27-year-old Sendrick Brown was sentenced on July 29th to 8 years in prison after his guilty plea to one count of aiding and abetting the discharge or a firearm in furtherance of a [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] crime of violence.
Steven Bugni remains a fugitive.
The investigation revealed that on January 28th, Mueller and Bugni, both armed with firearms, stole money money from Mother s Foods. Brown served as a lookout. During the robbery, Mueller shot a store employee in the left, causing a life-threatening bodily injury.
At the sentencing hearing, one victim spoke regarding the effect of the robbery on himself, the other store employees, and the business. He mentioned that several customers were in the store at the time of the robbery, including two young children.
The Hobbs Act, passed by Congress in 1946, provides federal jurisdiction for cases involving violent, habitual criminals who commit armed robbery of businesses [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] involved in interstate commerce.聽 Federal prosecution of these offenders is sometimes beneficial since the penalties may be tougher than under state law.聽 To that end, the U.S. Attorney鈥檚 Office and its County Attorney partners are working together to ensure that violent offenders are effectively prosecuted, making our communities safer for all.
This matter is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Milwaukee Police Department.

The revised bill by Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) passed the Senate and sailed through two Assembly committees. The full Assembly is expected to vote Thursday.
The bill, if passed and signed by [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton Soldes[/url] the governor, would make California the second state, after Minnesota, to require smartphone kill switches.
Led by San Francisco Dist. Atty. George Gascon, the push for passage gained strength with a new report and survey by a Nebraska business professor. The analysis concluded that smartphone owners could save an estimated $3.4 billion a year if their handsets were rendered worthless by activation of a kill switch.
"If all stolen phones could easily be disabled, criminals would have virtually no incentive to steal a phone in the first place," [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/23-sac-porte-epaule]Sac port锟斤拷 锟斤拷paule[/url] said William Duckworth of Creighton University in Omaha. He said that an online survey of smartphone owners showed overwhelming support for the kill-switch option.
The Gascon-Leno proposal is supported by consumer groups, law enforcement and city governments including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Ana, Oakland and San Diego.
It's opposed by the California and Los Angeles area chambers of commerce, tech groups and CTIA, a national wireless trade group. They contend that it's bad public policy for states to pass their own technical regulations for products sold nationally.
CTIA's opposition is not shared by some of its members. According to Gascon, most smartphone makers and marketers, including Apple, , , Samsung, Blackberry, and AT&T, removed their earlier opposition to the bill.
Phony papers
Businesses should watch out for official-looking letters asking for $49.50 for a "Certificate of Status" to show [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/24-sac-porte-main]Sac port锟斤拷 main[/url] they are corporations in good standing, regulators warn.
The documents are issued only by the Secretary of State, for a $5 fee.

Calls to the company, identified on the phone as "California Compliance," were not returned.

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) Auburn transfer Shane Callahan has been declared eligible to compete [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] for the University of Colorado s football team this fall.
Callahan, a 6-foot-6 offensive lineman from Chaparral High School in Parker, Colo., redshirted as a freshman in 2012 for the Tigers and appeared in two games for them last fall.
He enrolled at [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] Colorado in July and joined the team for preseason practices that began Saturday.
Colorado submitted a waiver appeal to the NCAA asking that Callahan be allowed to compete immediately based on family reasons instead of having to sit out a year like most transfers do.

NQR chief executive Aaron Fitzgerald says the business offers a service to suppliers. It will take pallets that don't fit Coles or Woolworths specifications, or goods manufactured for promotional purposes that have not sold before the end of their campaigns. Consumers mostly would not be able to tell the difference between a product bought at his store and one bought through Coles or Woolworths, he says.

Although NQR stocks all the big brands across all product categories, Fitzgerald is reluctant to name his customers (although they include Coca-Cola and Goodman Fielder) for fear that Coles and Woolworths will go back to the suppliers and ask for the discounts that NQR receives.
It's an approach that has captured the attention of suppliers and consumers, with NQR opening seven new stores over the past few years. It now has 23 stores in Victoria, with ambitions to spread into regional areas in NSW and South Australia. Last month it opened a new store in Sale, Victoria.
We plan to open four stores a year for [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-corners-towel-scarf-38]Louis Vuitton Corners Towel Scarf[/url] the next five years," Fitzgerald says. "We hope to move into Wagga and Wollongong, depending on space and rental negotiations."
He won't reveal numbers, but says the business has recorded double digit growth in the past four years. We'll have [sales] growth of 12 per cent this year, and 5 per cent revenue growth, he says, adding that performance will be affected by a recent $1 million investment in IT.
The performance will eclipse the industry average, however. An IBISWorld report published in June shows average revenue growth over the past five years was 2.4 per cent; the sector was worth $87 billion in the 2013-14 financial year.
NQR customers include young families, students and pensioners. Top [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/ceinture-louis-vuitton-17]Ceinture Louis Vuitton[/url] selling products differ from area to area, depending on the demographics. For instance, the Ashburton store in Victoria sells many meal-preparation supplies such as tinned tomatoes and tomato paste. The store in Fountain Gate, an area dominated by young families, sells lunch-box fillers such as yoghurts and muesli bars.
Fitzgerald is pessimistic about the future for smaller retailers if the main grocers continue to place pressure on margins. Large companies will survive, but they will have to find margin elsewhere, which usually happens by cutting labour costs. Small businesses will also have to cut jobs, and if they can't do that, that's where they fail.
He says consumers will suffer from a smaller range of products on offer.
But there are lots of opportunities for smaller retailers to make niche brands the heroes in their range," he says. "This should provide independent grocers with a platform for growth. It's also important not to always blame the majors. It's a great volume opportunity. But it's also vital to find alternatives so that your business is sustainable. If you build your business around the majors it makes negotiating with them tough because you're only negotiating on the fear of being delisted.
One NQR supplier is Marsh Dairy [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/anagramme-ceinture-19]Anagramme ceinture[/url] Products. Managing director Robert Marsh manufactures a cheese sold exclusively through NQR and sells about four tonnes of Marsh's Jedda a month. He says both his business and NQR make a return from the arrangement and he likes the straightforward nature of the relationship.
Marsh also sells through the major grocers and says the best way to do business with them is to meet their expectations. It's a good business partnership and our approach is to overservice our customers so we maintain good relationships with them.

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 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/url] 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 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/url] 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.
Spike Eskin (@SpikeEskin)

One had a Phillies-related request:
Hey , can you dedicate movin out to Ruben Amaro?
Joe (@corrado_19)

Oh, but that wasn't the only Phillies dig:
Billy Joel wearin Phils cap last night. Most hits at Citizens Bank Park this season
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
Vincent Chase (@dan_killion)

When Miley Cyrus fans meet Billy Joel fans.
Mickipedia (@SEACRESTOUT)

Anyway, here's the setlist [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/url] from Billy Joel at Citizens Bank Park:
1. A Matter of Trust
2. Pressure
3. The Entertainer
4. Vienna
5. Gonna Fly Now (Theme from Rocky)
6. Zanzibar
7. The Longest Time (with Boyz II Men)
8. New York State of Mind

12. Allentown
13. My Life
14. She's Always a Woman
15. We Didn't Start the Fire
16. Highway to Hell (AC/DC cover)
17. Don't Ask Me Why

According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN, a trade making All-Star power forward a Cleveland Cavalier has already been agreed to.聽, Windhorst said that "The deal is done, but not done." Windhorst continued: "The teams [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] have agreed, but they can't say they have agreed and they can't agree because we are in this weird moratorium period. Because you can't trade until the 23rd of this month."
Windhorst says that the deal would involve and Andrew Wiggins. Love has the opportunity to be a free agent next summer, so the Cavs are assuming some risk in making the deal. On the other [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] hand, Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins haven't proven anything in the NBA yet. Obviously Wiggins hasn't had his shot yet, and Bennett's final story has yet to be written, but that matters when you are trading for a top eight NBA player who affects the game like Kevin Love does. You know what you are getting, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] and you know that it's pretty awesome.

Middle distance runner Ben St Lawrence also congratulated his teammate: Loved your work @GenGen_LaCaze - joining the party on stage to celebrate your b'day in the spirit of the games! .
LaCaze acknowledged her performance had caused a little bit of a stir .
The athlete said she still didn t know if she would be disciplined for her actions and had considered repercussions including jail but said she had no regrets.
I wasn t going up there and causing a ruckus, I just kind of got up there and had [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sacoche LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] my little bit [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] of birthday celebration and limelight, she said.
I didn t put up a fight, I just got off stage and got out of the way so I d like to think I didn t cause too much commotion up there.
LaCaze said she had told her mother and father to watch for her during the closing ceremony.
I said I d try and get on TV but I don t think they were expecting quite the move I pulled.
It is not the first time LaCaze has found the headlines.
In the lead-up to the London Olympics she was at the centre of a selection controversy after Athletics Australia refused to select her despite LaCaze running an A qualifying time before the designated cut-off date.
The Australian OIympic Committee intervened and LaCaze was able to run in [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sacoche LOUIS VUITTON Homme pas cher[/url] London.
LaCaze's tilt at celebrity possibly follows her faiure to gain attention on the podium.

In Glasgow, she came fifth in the final of the 3000 metres steeplechase.

MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. From the Indiana State Excise Police:
Indiana State Excise Police officers cited 23 people and six businesses during Michigan City鈥檚 6th Annual Super Boat Great Lakes Grand Prix this weekend.
While patrolling Michigan City this weekend, excise officers cited or arrested 23 people on 39 charges and six licensed establishments on 15 charges.
Four people [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] were arrested on drug-related charges. Two minors were arrested for illegal possession of alcohol, with one also being cited for being in a tavern or liquor store. Twenty-two people were cited for various other infractions, including two for open container violations.
The following locations were cited administratively for various alcohol and tobacco violations:
Maxine鈥檚, 521 Franklin, was preliminary cited for a floor-plan violation.
King Richard鈥檚 Liquors, 3311 Franklin, was preliminarily cited for allowing a minor to enter, sale of alcohol to a minor and failure to check ID.
Ryan鈥檚, 401 Franklin, was preliminarily cited for a floor-plan violation on Friday, then again on Saturday for allowing carry-in/carry-out alcoholic beverages.
Me and My Bar, 3201 E. Dunes Hwy, was preliminarily cited for violating the state Smoke-Free Air law by allowing smoking where prohibited, failure to remove smoking paraphernalia and failure to post signage.
Next Door Store, 10201 U.S. 12, was preliminarily cited for not having tobacco-related signage.
Clubhouse, 415 East [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] U.S. Hwy 20, was preliminarily cited for allowing carry-in/carry-out alcoholic beverages and [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] allowing a minor to loiter at two separate catering permit locations.
As the enforcement division of the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission, the primary mission of the Indiana State Excise Police is to promote public safety by enforcing Indiana鈥檚 Alcoholic Beverage Code. While excise officers have the authority to enforce any state law, they focus primarily on alcohol, tobacco and related laws.
All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
All respondents are to be presumed not liable until, and unless the plaintiff can prove by preponderance of the evidence the respondent鈥檚 liability in an administrative hearing.

Just the day before, House Republicans had voted to sue Obama for using his executive authority. They called him lawless, a usurper, a monarch, a tyrant 鈥?all for postponing deadlines in the implementation of Obamacare. Now they were begging him to take executive action to compensate for their own inability to act 鈥?even though, in this case, accelerating the deportation of thousands of unaccompanied children coming from Central America would likely require Obama to ignore a 2008 law.
This was not a momentary lapse but a wholesale upending of reason.
Rep. Hal Rogers, R-Ky., the Appropriations Committee chairman who had been leading the GOP side in the border legislation debate, told reporters much the same thing after the legislation was pulled from the floor. 鈥淚 [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] think this will put a lot more pressure on the president to act,鈥?he said, according to The Washington Post鈥檚 Paul Kane and Ed O鈥橩eefe. 鈥淗e has the authority and power to solve the problem forthwith.鈥?
Apparently, if Obama is using his executive authority to advance a policy House Republicans support, it鈥檚 a meritorious exercise of presidential authority; if he uses that same authority to aid a policy they oppose such as amnesty for illegal immigrants, it鈥檚 time to write up articles of impeachment.
In another action last week, Republicans acknowledged, at least tacitly, that Obama has the executive authority to postpone deportations. The House majority drafted, and scheduled a vote on, legislation that would forbid the executive branch from anything that would 鈥渆xpand the number of aliens eligible for deferred action.鈥?
But in proposing such legislation (which was pulled from the floor along with the border bill), Republicans implicitly [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] acknowledged that Obama has such power now. Therefore, until both chambers of Congress can pass such a law by veto-proof margins, Obama retains the power.
If the GOP position sounds contradictory, that鈥檚 because it鈥檚 less about the Constitution than cleavages within the party. There are real questions about Obama鈥檚 abuses of power 鈥?say, the spying on Americans by the National Security Agency or the use of drones to kill U.S. citizens overseas 鈥?but the opposition party has left those largely untouched. The planned lawsuit was a bone thrown to conservatives to quiet their impeachment talk. The legislation restricting Obama鈥檚 executive authority on immigration was a similar effort to buy off conservatives who had been encouraged to rebel by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
But efforts to placate conservatives aren鈥檛 working. The new House GOP leadership team took over on Friday, but a mere two hours after Eric Cantor gave his valedictory as majority leader on the House floor, his successor did a face-plant.
All morning, GOP leaders had been predicting that they had sufficient Republican votes to pass Boehner鈥檚 border bill. But then conservatives, under pressure from Cruz and far-right interest groups, began to go squishy, and the new majority leader, Kevin McCarthy, announced that he was pulling the border bill from the floor and that members could depart early for their five-week summer break.
What followed was as close as Congress gets to one of those fistfights in the Taiwanese parliament. Mainstream Republicans besieged Boehner and McCarthy on the House floor, demanding they do something about the border crisis before going on holiday. Half an hour later, McCarthy announced 鈥渁dditional votes are possible today.鈥?
Boos and jeers rained down on the new leader. The speaker pro tempore, Virginia Foxx, R-N.C., banged the gavel violently for order. Some lawmakers had to be called back from Reagan National Airport.
Boehner, earlier in the day, tried to be philosophical: 鈥淚 take my job one day at a time.鈥?
The problem with this day-by-day leadership is inconsistency: What you do on Thursday has a way of contradicting what you said on Wednesday.

It's a tradition that usually involves throwing in [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-homme-59]Portefeuille Homme[/url] as many comic situations and jokes as possible but the latest comedian breaking into movies, Carl Barron, is taking a different approach.
Manny Lewis, which he co-wrote and stars in, is described as a bittersweet comedy about a successful comedian who can connect with thousands on stage but struggles to find a relationship off it.
Advertisement
Based loosely on Barron's life as a successful stand-up comedian who has toured the country for 20 years and released four big-selling DVDs, it is directed by fellow comic Anthony Mir and co-stars Leeanna Walsman.
"It's just a simple idea about this lonely comic falling in love with a girl who works on the phone," he says.
Barron had a bittersweet moment of his own when a live comedy show being filmed for Manny Lewis attracted flak last weekend.
Despite the show being promoted with the line ''How would you like to be part of Carl's new forthcoming movie?'' some disgruntled fans walked out and complained about being used as extras.
Barron is keeping his view of that uproar to himself but is [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-long-51]Portefeuille long[/url] playing down expectations for the film.
"It's just another bit of work," he says drily on set at Circular Quay, dressed in a beanie and ugg boots. "I like working. I've still got my career.
"I hope people like it. You put a lot of work into it [but] if people didn't like it, it wouldn't be the end of the world."
Barron adds that he is never comfortable talking things up. It sounds funny but I don t expect a lot from life. I m just making it and see how it goes. Then do the next thing."
Raised in Longreach in outback Queensland before moving to the Gold Coast, Barron was a roof tiler for 17 years before trying comedy at Sydney's Harold Park Hotel.
"I went and saw Jimeoin one night and something clicked," he says. "I thought I could talk about those sort of things. Then I spoke to the support act in the toilet, which was Akmal [Saleh], and said, 'How do you get into it?' He said, 'Come to this pub next Monday night.' So I did."
Barron kept up his job for years until he became popular enough, partly through appearances on Channel Nine's The Footy Show, to become a full-time comedian.
While a film is the goal for many comedians, Barron says he was never passionate about it when Mir suggested making one a decade ago. When he relented, he made sure [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/echarpe-louis-vuitton-14]锟斤拷charpe Louis Vuitton[/url] the story was rooted in real-life experience.
"I just wanted to show people the isolation and loneliness of when you re on the road as a comic, rather than just all the happy side. People might already know that but I wanted to show them the whole picture."
Mir remains impressed that Barron wants to make a film that is more than just jokes.
I know Carl didn t do it for box-office glory," he says. "He did it as a story he wanted to tell. And I hope we can tell that story as well and as truthfully as possible.
To open your heart is not an easy thing. That s something that he s striving for on this film.

BOSTON (CBS) 聽I keep receiving questions about how come we ve had a cool summer in recent weeks, and the answer is we haven t!

Sunday s observed high temperatures more like late September!
We ve actually had an average summer, which now feels cool considering how many hot summers have scorched the U.S. in recent years. It s interesting to see this reaction similar to how people felt after our winter. Was it that bad? Not really. I wrote a blog going through the reasoning why it was not (which was subsequently torn apart by angry, cold New Englanders). But the bottom line is that while MARCH was awful, most of the winter was pretty typical around here. Snowfall a little above average, a little colder than average, but nothing too noteworthy until the last few days of February and then March (which is technically spring so far as weather records are concerned). But after so many easy winters [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] that were not typical it felt horrible to a lot of folks.

This is a look at temperature departures from average June 1st through Sunday. You can spot the well below average temps that have been consistent in the middle of the country, the heat that s continued to burn up the west, and for us? Ho-hum average in New England. Source: WeatherBell
Now here in summer, average temperatures don t feel right (June and July both ran slightly above average in both Worcester and Boston official climate sites). [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] We re used to melting from time to time. This year? Delightful! We ve had some cool days for sure (this weekend one heck of an example it felt like October out there). We ve also had some warm stretches. But what has been very notable has been the lack of the big heat. Normally, you re going to get a stretch or two that are just brutal. But we ve had none of that this summer. Only 4 days reaching 90潞 in Boston (the average for a year is 14). There hasn t been a single heat wave (the closest we got was July 1st through 3rd 89, 91, and 91 respectively). There have also been an unusually large number of dry air outbreaks keeping long stretches of humidity at bay. So even when we ve had a hot or humid day it s only lasted for one or two days. Not enough for hot weather fatigue or any serious issues. So my guess is that s why so many have felt it s been a summer without the sizzle.
Now the clock is ticking. Will summer heat make a comeback? It s not looking very likely. In August, our average high drops from 82 to 77潞. We also start to lose daylight and the sun angle continues to decrease (we ll聽 lose 1hr, 15 minutes of daylight through the course of the month). And while August always seems to have a reputation of being the hottest month of the year, it usually is not (July wins that crown). It tends to be a pretty dull month unless the tropics decide to pay us a visit (Bertha out to sea this week, phew).

GFS Ensemble 500mb heights 12 days out show the same old pattern continuing across North America. Source: WSI Energycast
The overall pattern remains stuck in a rut. A huge ridge in the west, a persistent trough in the east. There are few signs that this will let up significantly in the days to come. Above is the GFS ensemble mean 500mb heights .12 days out! Still no change. Yes there will be little fluctuations here and there, but with this persistence it s extremely unlikely we ll have any sustained big heat in the next couple of weeks. Once you get to mid-August, your days are getting numbered.
Don t get me wrong, plenty of upper 70s to mid 80s in that time! It s not like we ll be freezing our butts off. In fact, those are pretty much average temps for that time of year (again, we hit on the idea that average now appears cool). But if you re one of those people who love a good heat wave, rejoice at seeing a stretch [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] of 90s on the 7-Day, or for some reason like showering 3 times a day you may be out of luck.

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?

On Sunday, the Islamic State, the militant group formerly known as ISIS, which claimed it created a caliphate using territory it controlled in Iraq and Syria, seized Zumar, a town with oil fields near the Syrian border, from Kurdish forces, security officials and Zumar residents told the Times.

The Penn Museum recently announced . The skeleton, which had been in a coffin-like box in the basement of the museum for 85 years, is thought to be about 6,500 years old.
The museum knew it had a mystery skeleton in the basement for years now, but it had lost the identifying information on it. It simply [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] sat there, unidentified and untouched. It wasn t until the museum began a project to digitize records from archaeological expeditions to Ur (what is now southern Iraq) in the 鈥?0s and [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Sistina[/url] 鈥?0s that it was able to identify the skeleton.



One of the skeletons the Penn Museum received after an expedition was marked as missing in 1990. But William Hafford, who led the digitization effort, and Janet Monge聽(recently ), the curator of the physical anthropology section of the museum, were able to connect this record of a skeleton.
A visual inspection made by Penn Museum archeologists revealed the skeleton was that of a man, who lived to about 50 and was "well-muscled." The museum has about 2,000 complete human [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] skeletons in its collection.

A bullet in the back killed Mr Turner but it is understood that more than one shot hit the 51-year-old father-of-two. Mr Turnbull then drove home, where he was arrested four hours later.

After several reports last week that the OEH workers had arrived, unannounced, on Mr Turnbull's Croppa Creek property to serve a notice [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/joaillerie-louis-vuitton-12]Joaillerie Louis Vuitton[/url] for illegal vegetation clearing, his family painted a picture of an elderly man constantly targeted by an aggressive government about clearing his land.
The incident generated widespread debate on native vegetation legislation, and came after years of mounting tension between farmers, environmentalists and governments about landowners' rights to clear vegetation for cropping.
Moree Plains Shire Council mayor Katrina Humphries said violence was "always going to happen". Federal Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said: You have this crazy situation where you don t own the vegetation on your land, the state government does, and many people have had enough."
Last week, Mr Turnbull's family told News Corp that inspectors were constantly on their property and the farmer objected to the way the rules were administered by local authorities. [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Alma[/url]
However, Fairfax Media can reveal that Mr Turnbull drove to Talga Lane, unannounced, about 5.40pm, while the compliance officers were working on the side of the road on a separate project.
Detective Inspector Rattenbury said it was not yet known why Mr Turnbull drove to Talga Lane, or why he stopped. Mr Turnbull's son Grant did not respond to Fairfax Media's requests for comment.
Mr Turnbull had never put in a formal application for land conversion and had been investigated and prosecuted several times for illegal clearing around Croppa Creek, an area that includes koala habitat.
In April, Grant Turnbull, who owns a neighbouring property, Colorado, withdrew his sole application for converting grazing land to cropping land.
An OEH spokesman said: "We can confirm Glen was not issuing a compliance notice at the time, nor was he on Mr Turnbull s property."
Public Service Association of NSW assistant general secretary Steve Turner called on the government to carry out "serious risk assessments" of each frontline role, to ensure the safety of environmental compliance officers.
The OEH said the agency follows procedures beforevisiting remote properties to check if anyone there has a [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Artsy[/url] police history.
"OEH has a memorandum of understanding with the NSW Police force, which includes an agreement for the NSW Police force to provide OEH with information on criminal history, where required, for investigations under our legislation," a spokesman said.
Mr Turnbull will reappear in Moree Local Court on Tuesday. He has yet to enter a plea.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) District 4 officers from the Milwaukee Police Department located and arrested three armed robbery suspects minutes after they committed their second crime.
According to police, officers were dispatched to the 5900 block of N. 76th Street at about 12:45 a.m. on Saturday, August 2nd for a report of an armed robbery.
Police say two female victims told officers that a suspect came up to them, waved a handgun, and stole their property before fleeing. Two other suspects acted as lookouts.
At about 1:10 a.m., in the 5600 block of N. 76th Street, the group committed a similar crime against a male victim. That victim saw a squad car in the area and alerted police.
A Milwaukee Police sergeant investigating the first armed robbery noticed the three suspects run away and was able to catch them and take them into custody.
While the suspects were fleeing the scene, they dropped a wallet they had just stolen from the second victim.
The suspects are two 18-year-olds from Milwaukee and a 21-year-old from Milwaukee.
One of the 18-year-old suspects has an open court case for an armed robbery.
The 21-year-old suspect is a convicted felon and is still on probation from a 2012 armed robbery conviction.
MPD will present this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney鈥檚 Office in the coming days.

It would be a bit like Sydney and Hawthorn pulling out of the AFL this season, with the premier then claiming it was still the best team.
When Ten's Leisel Jones asked swimmer James Magnussen whether he could afford to be in a more relaxed mood in Glasgow given it was not the Olympics, she reinforced the general feeling about the Commonwealth Games. When Usain Bolt, the Games' glamour athlete, reportedly told The Times the Games were a bit shit , the feeling was rammed home.
Advertisement
Through this prism, it's not hard to see why there has not been any interest shown yet by local broadcasters in the 2018 Games, despite these being held on the friendly shores of the Gold Coast.
The Olympics, naturally, have always been of greater importance but when even host commentators and athletes talk down what was once dubbed the Friendly Games, some of the air is taken out of breathless daily reports of Australia dominating [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/joaillerie-louis-vuitton-12]Joaillerie Louis Vuitton[/url] the medal table.
Sports fans are now accustomed to watching the world's best at the flick of a switch. Before pay TV and the internet, it was much more difficult to do so, particularly when some networks 'warehoused' certain events or provided only limited coverage. Now, it's a feast. This has contributed to the Commonwealth Games losing its lustre of the 1970s and 1980s because the event does not feature all of the world's best athletes.
Some will argue that it was worth tuning in because Australia was so strongly represented and, typically, did so well. That's also the belief of executives from other networks. Channel Nine, for instance, wants our cricketers to not only do well but to crush the opposition, especially in an Ashes series. The pleasure of a 'kill' outrates even a knife-edge result. The difference there, though, is that the Ashes rivalry remains cricket's greatest.
For its part, Ten's commentary - both from [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] commentators in Glasgow and those calling from booths in Melbourne - was solid, although the live interview crosses from the Glasgow studio to reporters and athletes in the field were, at times, awkward. Not as awkward, though, as watching the two-seated bike racing. Should this really be a medal event? It conjured images of the three Goodies going for a bike ride.
Ian Thorpe was a strong addition to Ten's team when discussing swimming nuances - although his wardrobe could have been smarter. Jones is also a talent but did not need to mention how tough it was interviewing swimmer Christian Sprenger, her friend, as he struggled with injury. As a swimming expert, her job is to deliver the straight news.
Two long-time bugbears of Olympics and Commonwealth Games coverage are the number of advertisements, and short grabs of events outside of the pool, track and velodrome.
Regular advertisements are a necessary [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Artsy[/url] evil but this again meant chunks of individual and team matches were missed, particularly frustrating during the exciting pool group netball clash between Australia and England. To Ten's credit, at least it was possible to go back and watch a full replay on its Tenplay website.
But it was annoying when needless interviews with medallists were done 24 hours later at the expense of live sport. Again, Tenplay was handy in this instance. Hopefully Seven will have a similar set-up come the 2016 Rio Olympic Games.
The time difference meant Ten maximised use of its OneHD through the day with replays of the previous night's events. Again, hopefully Seven will do the same.
Ten was happy overall with its solid ratings in Glasgow, having stumped up $30 million for the rights six years ago. It provided exposure to the network's news and key shows Family Feud, The Bachelor and The Project.
But will it be keen to be involved again in four years' time, particularly as there will be an opportunity to grab a slice of AFL and NRL rights in the meantime? It's a debate all networks continue to have.

The revised bill by Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) passed the Senate and sailed through two Assembly committees. The full Assembly is expected to vote Thursday.
The bill, if passed and signed by [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton Soldes[/url] the governor, would make California the second state, after Minnesota, to require smartphone kill switches.
Led by San Francisco Dist. Atty. George Gascon, the push for passage gained strength with a new report and survey by a Nebraska business professor. The analysis concluded that smartphone owners could save an estimated $3.4 billion a year if their handsets were rendered worthless by activation of a kill switch.
"If all stolen phones could easily be disabled, criminals would have virtually no incentive to steal a phone in the first place," [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/23-sac-porte-epaule]Sac port锟斤拷 锟斤拷paule[/url] said William Duckworth of Creighton University in Omaha. He said that an online survey of smartphone owners showed overwhelming support for the kill-switch option.
The Gascon-Leno proposal is supported by consumer groups, law enforcement and city governments including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Ana, Oakland and San Diego.
It's opposed by the California and Los Angeles area chambers of commerce, tech groups and CTIA, a national wireless trade group. They contend that it's bad public policy for states to pass their own technical regulations for products sold nationally.
CTIA's opposition is not shared by some of its members. According to Gascon, most smartphone makers and marketers, including Apple, , , Samsung, Blackberry, and AT&T, removed their earlier opposition to the bill.
Phony papers
Businesses should watch out for official-looking letters asking for $49.50 for a "Certificate of Status" to show [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/24-sac-porte-main]Sac port锟斤拷 main[/url] they are corporations in good standing, regulators warn.
The documents are issued only by the Secretary of State, for a $5 fee. A Sacramento firm called "California State Corporations" is making the fraudulent solicitations and "has no affiliations" with the state government, according to an alert from the Secretary of State. Calls to the company, identified on the phone as "California Compliance," were not returned.

In fact, it鈥檚 so involved that the start of the school year has been pushed into early September.
Part of the work is being done at the football stadium, where a new turf field, press box and increased seating have coach Ray Biles feeling like his team has a legitimate Class 4A-level place to play.
Biles and his staff went to work on rebuilding their team Monday, the first day schools in 4A and below could .
They know it will be quite an undertaking with only 12 lettermen returning, but Lorena has found ways to get it done in the past. Never the biggest, strongest or fastest squad, the Leopards have reached the playoffs each of the past six years and claimed at least a share of the district title four times during that span. Last year was no different, as Lorena shared the district crown in a 9-2 campaign.
鈥淵ou approach it the same way every year,鈥?Biles said. 鈥淭he expectations are the same. The community doesn鈥檛 care that we鈥檙e young. Like I tell our seniors each year, I don鈥檛 go tell people we鈥檙e rebuilding. You don鈥檛 need to hear as [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] a senior that we鈥檙e rebuilding. We have a lot of guys that were good on Thursday night, and now we鈥檙e going to find out if they can be good on Friday night.鈥?
Consistent winning has been more elusive, for Connally and Robinson, both of which begin this year with high expectations. The Cadets rode an explosive offense to sharing the district title with Lorena last season and won a playoff game before falling to eventual state finalist Fairfield to finish their season at 9-3. They return both of their most important playmakers offensively in quarterback Kristian Brown and district MVP running back Josh Terrell.
They have holes to fill defensively, but coach Mike Rabe said this was the best summer Connally has had since his arrival in 2010 and the Cadets arrived excited to get started.
鈥淭hey were ready to go,鈥?Rabe said. 鈥淚 didn鈥檛 see any fatigue or anything as we were practicing, no lack of concentration. It was, physically, a really good day first day for [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] the guys.鈥?It also helped that many teams got outside early in the morning and finished before the heat became an issue.
At Robinson, coach Tommy Allison has his team moving quicker than it ever has in his tenure. Having 35 seniors 鈥?an extraordinary number for a 4A Division I school 鈥?is making things easier for the Rockets, who are coming off an 8-3 season.
鈥淲hen you look out there and kids already know what they鈥檙e doing, they know their assignments, we can really just work to get better and take care of some things you might take for granted when you鈥檙e having to do a lot of teaching of systems and stuff,鈥?Allison said. 鈥淭he leadership is really where I can tell a big difference out there. When you have that many seniors, it just filters down all the way to the freshmen because everybody鈥檚 pushing everybody.鈥?
All three will have some early tests that will show how well things went during the next few weeks of practice, with Lorena calling on some old district rivals.
The Leopards will meet China Spring, Robinson and La Vega in the first three weeks of the season. Biles knows the kind of test those schools 鈥?and their coaches 鈥?present, and he thinks win or lose, it will make Lorena a better team.
鈥淚 always felt that whoever came out of the old 17-3A, they were going to be prepared,鈥?Biles said. 鈥淭hat didn鈥檛 mean we were going to go out and win every playoff ballgame, but you had already had some wars. In some districts they knew they鈥檇 only played one serious contender or one ballgame. Now what happens? Every week in the old 17-3A if you weren鈥檛 ready to play, somebody was about to hand you your behind in a hurry.鈥?
There鈥檚 plenty of excitement to be had with all three schools, and for good reason. Biles hopes his team can make the community as happy about his team as it is about the improved stadium.
Of course, all of the construction isn鈥檛 making life easier now.
鈥淭here are a lot of distractions with the construction and things that are going on, and you know what, that鈥檚 not a bad thing,鈥?Biles said. 鈥淭here are a lot [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] of distractions that happen on Friday night, and you have to work through it and stay focused. If it鈥檚 just a matter of going around a pile of dirt and over a trench to get to the practice field, we鈥檒l do it.鈥?

The new glitch in relations comes as Dr Natalegawa is trying to negotiate with Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop a code of conduct governing spying between the two countries. He said Australia merely had to agree to Indonesia s most recent draft, and sign a commitment not to spy on each other .
Co-operation between the two countries over anti-people smuggler activities and defence exercises was suspended late last year after the revelation that Australia had spied on the President and his wife. They cannot resume until the countries agree to the code of conduct.

A blanket suppression order prevents Fairfax Media and other Australian media outlets from reporting the contents of a Victorian Supreme Court case in which Dr Yudhoyono has been named, an affadavit in the [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON[/url] case, or even the suppression order itself. 
The Department of Foreign Affairs said last week the order was sought to protect the reputation of international leaders from unwarranted innuendo emerging from information that could suggest the involvement in corruption of specific senior political figures in the region, whether in fact they were or not .
But the tactic backfired badly after the suppression order was leaked to WikiLeaks and published online, forcing Australia to deny that Dr Yudhoyono was a subject of the proceedings involving the [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON solders[/url] former Australian note-printing company Securency.
Asked if he accepted the Australian government response so far, Dr Natalegawa said Indonesia wanted full transparency [in this case] so as to avoid innuendo and speculation . 
We want to have this issue to be very clear, crystal clear so to avoid misperception, he said.
Dr Natalegawa will be meeting Ms Bishop at an ASEAN meeting in Myanmar this weekend, and Dr Yudhoyono has set an August deadline for finalising the agreement between the two countries.
Dr Natalegawa said agreement would be made as soon as possible .
Will it be tomorrow or the day after tomorrow or by the end of the month? It will very much depend on the response of the Australian government over the last draft Indonesia sent to Australia It is just simple, without revealing the content, at heart it's about a commitment not to spy on each other. [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON pas cher[/url]
However, despite the apparently regular speed bumps in the bilateral relationship, Dr Natalegawa said he thought it was good, going in a positive direction .
Dr Yudhoyono s meeting with Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Batam Island in June was very good, very positive .
However, we will continue our efforts to restore the relationship, the Indonesian foreign minister said.

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.

So last spring, Huff changed the way Penn State's running backs carry the ball, pointing to an study that said ballcarriers who hold the ball vertically fumble less. The transition took time and remains ongoing. But Penn State's backs enter training camp today ready to cleanse the fumbles from their memories.
When I came in, I got emails, letters and calls saying, 'These guys can't hold onto the ball?' " Huff said. "I told them, 'I don't know who those guys are.' That's over.
"Anybody can tell players to hold onto the ball. Heck, all 107,000 people in the stadium do it every Saturday. How you hold onto the ball is the question."
At Penn State, backs now call the ball, "the program." Huff brought that approach from Western , where he coached last year. Head coach P.J. Fleck wanted his backs to take ball security so seriously that "it kills you to put the program on the ground."
To prevent that, Huff asked his running backs to carry the football with the tip pointed toward their chins. Huff quoted a recent NFL study of fumbles, which noted that backs who hold the ball vertically fumble less.
Essentially, Huff said, it's difficult to dislodge a football that's being carried tight and vertically against the body. Former back learned that later in his career, curbing his fumbling tendencies by making the change.
During spring drills, Huff showed clips of backs who fumbled while not holding the ball vertically. On the field, he shouted "Chin" at them daily as a reminder of where to point the football.
Zwinak, who's four yards shy of 2,000 for his career, called the transition "weird" initially, since his muscle memory was so trained [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] to hold the ball a different way. But he felt more confident with the change as spring drills ended.
"It's hard to break old habits," Zwinak said. "I've done it so many times that you develop a rhythm and a muscle memory with the way you carry the ball. But every time I got the ball, coach Huff is yelling, 'Chin,' so it's starting to become a habit."
Belton has high expectations for his senior year, saying he wants to be considered among the best backs in the country. To do so, he has worked to run more physically and upgrade his pass-protections skills. Handling the ball, Belton said, was another part of his evolution.
"There are just some things you can't get around," he said. "It's something we had to deal with, and it was definitely awkward at first, but we got into the groove of things. You just have to allow yourself to keep learning, do [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] things to get yourself better and prepare yourself for the next level. That's the point I'm at."
Huff said he prides himself on teaching football concepts rather than being a football "babysitter" on the field. He acknowledged that learning a method of holding the ball would be difficult. He also called it vital.
"It's like Rocky II, when Mick tried to teach Rocky how to fight right-handed," Huff said. "But when you do it the right way, you won't put the ball on the ground."
Five things to watch during Penn State training camp1. Offensive line, offensive line, offensive line. At the media days, coach James Franklin said he expects the line to end up being a strength for us. Franklin did not note a timeline, though. Left tackle Donovan Smith will play alongside four new starters, two of them who could be defensive tackles converted to guard. Still, Franklin said the issue revolves more around experience than talent, and offensive coordinator John Donovan is skilled at calling plays that hide your deficiencies. 2. More running from the QB? Christian Hackenberg won t be running the spread, but Franklin wants him to have a scrambling mindset under duress. The coach also said that Hackenberg, who scored four rushing touchdowns last year, moves better than people think. Maybe [there will be] a little bit more running than you ve seen in the past, Franklin said, but I don t really see us doing a whole lot of designed runs with him. 3. Broader role for the tight ends. Franklin likes their talent and playmaking ability but wants them to play a bigger part in the run game. Jesse James, Kyle Carter and Adam Breneman, who combined for 58 receptions last year, all have added size, which Breneman said is vital for blocking in the Big Ten. Meanwhile, Franklin called freshman Mike Gesicki, who benched 385 in summer testing, everything you want in a tight end. 4. Downhill defense. We throw the first punch and keep on punching, defensive coordinator Bob Shoop said. That s provocative talk, but what does it mean? Linebacker Mike Hull called Shoop s defensive style downhill, saying he expects it to produce more splash plays and turnovers. Hull, who will be central to the defense at middle linebacker, said he fits such a style. Ends C.J. Olaniyan, Deion Barnes and (a healthy) Brad Bars should thrive in the defense, as should cornerback Jordan Lucas and safety Adrian Amos.5. Youth on parade. Freshmen will populate the two-deep and special teams, with 58 first-year players (including walk-ons) on the roster. Wide receivers [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton W[/url] could have the biggest impact, notably DeAndre Thompkins, Saeed Blacknall and Chris Godwin.Mark Wogenrich

A post on Marlin detective Rob Douglas鈥?Facebook page centered around how it frustrates him to go grocery shopping at the first of the month with people who receive public assistance or food stamps but have tattoos or expensive tire rims on their vehicles.
The rant ended with: 鈥淚 promise, if I ever snap and go on a killing spree, it will be in a supermarket on the first.鈥?
City officials are unsure when the post was first published, but Marlin City Manager R.C. Fletcher said he was made aware of the post Sunday. The Tribune-Herald received a screenshot of the post over the weekend. The paper has been unable to locate Douglas for comment.
Douglas, who has been with the department for five years, was placed on administrative leave Monday and will remain on leave until the internal police investigation concludes, Allen said.
The department doesn鈥檛 plan to request aid from the Texas Rangers because it appears there鈥檚 nothing illegal about the post, Fletcher said.
Fletcher said Douglas may have violated the city鈥檚 policy regarding appropriate online publishing, but the situation is still under investigation. The Tribune-Herald requested a copy of the city鈥檚 policy on online publishing and were told to request it under the state鈥檚 public records laws. The paper has done so. A copy of the policy has yet to be furnished by the city.
鈥淲e鈥檙e at the very beginning of the investigation concerning this,鈥?Fletcher said.

Six Philadelphia Police officers .
Well, it finally happened: Philadelphia鈥檚 war on drugs finally caught
The bad news: They all happened to be


It鈥檚 actually a great thing, the timing of the indictment of a half-dozen Philly narcotics officers (above) on corruption charges. It comes while Mayor Nutter still has on his plate a decision on whether to approve or veto

The corruption allegations should give the mayor 鈥?and the rest of us 鈥斅爌ause, a moment to ask this very simple question: Is the war on [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] drugs inherently corrupting to the city鈥檚 law enforcement? And if that is the case, what should change about the way we prosecute that war?
Consider the evidence: The drip-drip-drip of corruption stories from the Philadelphia Police Department in recent years has largely puddled聽around the Narcotics Bureau.
It鈥檚 easy to guess聽why: That鈥檚 where the money is. When Narcotics Bureau officers bust down the doors of a real drug dealer, they鈥檙e liable to finds tens of thousands of dollars in currency 鈥?money that鈥檚 easy enough to make 鈥渄isappear鈥?from official case reports, And if you鈥檙e not a drug dealer 鈥?just some poor sap who doesn鈥檛 like banks and keeps your money stuck under your mattress 鈥?well, your money can聽disappear just as easily as the bad guys'.
Of course, this is only a step removed from the way law enforcement agencies legally use 鈥渇orfeiture鈥?to nab money from suspected drug dealers 鈥?and, it seems, lots of innocent folks 鈥?. When cops take money from innocent people on behalf of the city, that鈥檚 legal. When they do it on their own behalf, that鈥檚 illegal. Maybe the line is clear, but the distinction is probably thinner than anyone in charge would like to admit.
The problems go beyond filthy lucre.
In their zeal to make busts, the says聽that the allegedly dirty cops in the Narcotics Bureau frequently cut corners 鈥?barely investigating allegations of drug dealing before busting down [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] doors. detailing the history of the indicted officers suggests the 鈥渋nvestigators鈥?cut-and-pasted almost precisely the same descriptions of drug suspects, over and over, into their applications for search warrants. Nobody 鈥?not the officers鈥?supervisors, not the judges signing the warrants 鈥?seems to have noticed this until defense attorneys started comparing notes.
And that鈥檚 when they were even searching for drugs. Remember that got hit by narcotics investigators a few years back? 鈥斅爄tems that could potentially be used by drug dealers, but not necessarily. Nobody liked that the unit was destroying surveillance cameras in the bodegas, but nobody seemed to care that a high-profile squad was spending its time on possible drug paraphernalia either. It鈥檚 as though the police department decided to spend taxpayer dollars looking for E-Z Widers.
Bottom line: Even when the unit is acting legitimately, its actions are often 鈥?gross.
Ramsey鈥檚 response to all of this is telling: He wants the ability to rotate members out of the unit after five years. Last week, . Note, though, that he鈥檚 not trying to rotate officers off of the homicide unit. Maybe that tells us everything we need to know.
What does all this mean for marijuana decriminalization? Probably nothing. But maybe it should. We talked a few weeks back about how keeping marijuana illegal . Last week's federal indictment suggests it could聽be having [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Lockit[/url] the same effect on聽law enforcement. Maybe it doesn鈥檛 have to be this way.

Adjusted EBITDA: is a non-GAAP financial measure and may not be comparable to similarly named measures used by other companies. We believe this measure provides management with a more complete understanding of the underlying results and trends and an enhanced overall understanding of our financial liquidity and prospects for the future. Adjusted EBITDA is the primary metric for measuring our business results, forecasting and determining future capital investment allocations and is used by the Board of Directors to determine incentive compensation for future periods. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as Adjusted Net Income (Loss), excluding depreciation and amortization of [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] property and equipment, amortization of customer loyalty payments, interest and income taxes. Capital expenditures, which impact depreciation and amortization, Customer Loyalty Payments, interest expense and income tax expense, are reviewed separately by management.

Seven and the International Olympics Committee confirmed the deal for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games, the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and the 2020 Tokyo Games on Tuesday.
The agreement with Seven encompasses the rights for free-to-air television, pay television, radio, digital, mobile and Hybrid Broadcast Broadband TV.
Advertisement
Asked by Fairfax Media if it was possible that Seven could own a radio network within the length of the deal, Mr Stokes said: Yes it could.
I don t know if we will, it s up to (Seven chief executive) Mr Worner, but it s possible.
Mr Stokes said he saw potential synergies in owning a radio network and a free-to-air television network.
Seven could buy radio stations in all major metro [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sacs-louis-vuitton-2013-37]Sacs Louis Vuitton 2013[/url] markets aside from Perth where it owns The West Australian newspaper.
The two out of three rule stops anyone owning more than two of a newspaper, commercial TV licence or radio licence in a major market, although Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull is leading a regulatory review of the media sector, which could see the rule scrapped.
Seven paid around $190 million for the three Olympic Games and the deal included an option for the network to broadcast the following two Games in 2022 and 2024. The three finalists to host the 2022 Winter Olympics are Oslo, Beijing and Almaty in Kazakhstan. Beijing and Almaty have favourable timezones for broadcasting in [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-millimetre-artsy-41]Louis Vuitton Millimetre Artsy[/url] Australia.
Nine took an estimated $25 million hit on its coverage of the 2012 London Olympics after it jointly paid $122 million with pay TV operator Foxtel for the broadcast rights to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and London.
Mr Stokes insisted that Seven had always made a profit when it had televised the Games since he became involved in the company in 1994.
We re excited that this time around, the same results will be achieved, he said.
Seven s experience in broadcasting the Games meant the network was well-versed in the effort that was required to do so, MrStokes said.
It s in Seven s DNA, Mt Stokes said. Everybody in our network has worked on the Olympics at some time and everybody in our network is enthusiastic and cares.
You have to be the equivalent of an Olympic athlete because you have to be the best that our company s got to give.
Mr Worner said the company had received several emails from potential advertising clients on Tuesday morning after the deal was confirmed.
In terms of [Seven chief revenue officer Kurt s [Burnette] major task and that is to monetise these rights, again we haven t been able to press the button on our plans but we ve had plans, he said.
In terms of, for example, the development of programs we will launch out of 2016, those shows have been earmarked [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-keepall-49]Sac Louis Vuitton Keepall[/url] and they ve been in development for quite a few months.

I don t think I d go as far as publicly chastising my child for the whole world to see, said one post.

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.

Actress Alexa Jarvis in the role of Yum-Yum in the Seattle Gilbert Sullivan Society鈥檚 鈥淭he Mikado鈥?(Photo by Ray Welch / Seattle Gilbert Sullivan Society)
I am utterly amazed that the tempest in a teapot controversy about The Mikado appearing in the pages of The Seattle Times over the past few weeks completely misses the major theme of The Mikado and, in fact, all [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/damier-azur-toile-39]Damier Azur Toile[/url] of Gilbert and Sullivan鈥檚 work ["," Opinion, July 27].
That theme is a strong call to question authority and honor egalitarianism, especially in matters of the heart. The protagonists in Gilbert and Sullivan operas are mixed couples, in terms of class, but that could just as easily be religion or race. They have impediments [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-alma-36]Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] to their relationships imposed on them by authority figures and bizarre laws. In the end, the couples and the authority figures find ways around the repressive taboos so the couples can be together.
I grew up listening to Gilbert and Sullivan. I must give them some credit for giving me the clarity to enter into a mixed marriage without any thought to its propriety, despite the bigotry of the time. Mixed couples are a common theme in theater, from Romeo and Juliet to Miss Saigon, but always the mixed couples suffer a tragic fate for having the audacity to violate social norms.
The work of Gilbert and Sullivan is possibly unique, and way ahead of its time, by insisting, 鈥淣ever mind the why and wherefore, love can level ranks, and therefore,鈥?thus allowing the mixed couples to triumph. Go Gilbert and [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sac-louis-vuitton-homme-31]Sac Louis Vuitton Homme[/url] Sullivan!

An [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] additional $225 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars will be allocated for missile defense system as a result of legislation signed by President Barack Obama Monday, the White House said. Giving money to the Iron Dome project is nothing new for the U.S. In the past, hundreds of millions were provided, 聽The latest funding package is supposed to help restore Israel鈥檚 defense capabilities.
The signing came as Israel and Hamas militants agreed to a 72-hour cease-fire to end hostilities that began four weeks ago. Hamas began pummeling Israel with rockets following the burning death of a Palestinian youth, killed in retaliation for the kidnap-slayings of three Israeli teenagers.
鈥淭his funding will ensure that Israel will be able to sustain production of Iron Dome components in order to maintain adequate stockpiles of Iron Dome interceptors and equipment,鈥?the White House said in a statement, addding聽Iron Dome 鈥渉as saved countless Israeli lives.鈥?
鈥淭he United States has been clear since the start of this conflict that no country can abide rocket attacks against its civilians,鈥?the official statement read. 鈥淭he United States supports Israel鈥檚 right to defend itself against such attacks.鈥?
The statement finished: 鈥淲e also continue to call on Israeli authorities to take all feasible precautions to prevent civilian casualties in Gaza and protect the civilian Palestinian population from the effects of [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] attacks, and we continue to stress that all parties to the conflict must comply with international humanitarian law."
The Israeli military said 63 rockets were fired from Hamas territory Monday and five were intercepted by Iron Dome.
Since July 8, Hamas has fired more than 3253 rockets at Israel. Each rocket was meant to kill Israeli civilians. [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url]
鈥?IDF (@IDFSpokesperson)

The Iron Dome defense system has reportedly been effective during the current violence between Israel and Hamas militants, the AP reported. The money granted to Iron Dome will help Israel's military shoot down rockets or mortars headed toward major population centers in Israel. Israeli officials say the system has a 90 percent success rate.
The money was approved by Congress last week before lawmakers embarked on their annual summer break. When Obama signed the bill in the Oval Office Monday afternoon, a handful of photographers were present.

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/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/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/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/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/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/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.

The contracts will deliver them $US1 million per episode for the next three seasons of the show. They previously received $US325,000 per episode.
The deals also increase their windfall from the show's back end , that is, revenue from US re-runs and international TV and DVD sales.

The show, which is a top-rating property in the US for the CBS network and has been an invaluable part of Nine's programming strategy in Australia, has been running for seven seasons.
Warner Bros is expected to finalise deals with the remaining two cast-members, Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar, in the next few days.
Production on the eighth season was to begin last week but was delayed as negotiations stalled between Warner Bros, which produces the show, and lawyers for the five lead actors.
The pre-existing [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-neverfull-69]Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url] contracts for the show's five leads expired in May, after the show finished filming its seventh season.
Contracts for two supporting actors, Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik, were renewed last year.
The negotiations are wrapping up with a whisker of time left before the re-scheduled table read for the first episode of the new season this Wednesday, US time.
Astonishingly, despite the hefty lift in the show's cost for Warner Bros, the US trade publication Deadline is reporting that The Big Bang Theory will still clear $US1 billion in profits for the studio.
Deadline quoted sources saying it could reach $US2 billion in profits over its lifespan .
Although the US media characterised the negotiation as a standoff of sorts, there was little doubt that the actors would win their payday.
In simple terms, The Big Bang Theory is worth too much to Warner Bros, and its clients, not to secure the cast at any cost.
Speaking at a US programming showcase earlier this month, CBS network president Nina Tassler said she [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-idylle-70]LV Monogram Idylle[/url] was confident that everything will work out. These deals manage to get done somehow miraculously year after year.
The show's producer Chuck Lorre was also confident. There are people at Warner Brothers Television and people representing the actors who have done this before, he told The Hollywood Reporter.
This will work itself out. I think it's great. I want them all to be crazy wealthy because nobody deserves it more than this cast. It'll work out, he said.
In 2002, the cast of Friends negotiated contracts for their penultimate season which paid each of the six main cast-members $US1 million per episode.
And in 2012, the cast of Modern Family negotiated new contracts which extended [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/monogram-multicolore-71]Monogram Multicolore[/url] their seven year deal to eight, and guaranteed salary increases every season, from around $US150,000 per episode for the fourth season, through to more than $US350,000 for an eighth season.
The deal also gave the cast a slice of the show's back end , that is, revenue from US re-runs and international TV and DVD sales.

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.

Lance Larson, a professor at San Diego [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] State University s Department of Management Information Systems, said new technology has made it easier for hackers to digitally enter a company and install hacking systems.

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.

The Australian Motoring Enthusiast Senator is now left with one junior adviser on his Canberra staff.
Advertisement
Mr Breen took Thursday and Friday off last week to have a skin cancer cut from his face at Sydney's Westmead Hospital.
But after Senator Muir and Mr Littler discovered he had then flown to Byron Bay on Friday afternoon to attend last weekend's Byron Bay Writer's Festival, he was sacked.
Mr Breen said he was also accused of leaking the incident report to Fairfax Media - a claim he disputes, claiming Mr Druery passed on the report.
"With the benefit of hindsight, I should have written the incident report in more balanced terms, and giving [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Eden[/url] Mr Druery a copy proved to be a serious error of judgment on my part,' he said.
He said Senator Muir was "just the kind of person we should have in Parliament".
In a statement late on Tuesday, Senator Muir said it was "very upsetting" to lose two people from his team, and that it was his decision alone to sack the pair.
"I wish to clarify that Mr Breen's medical appointment was on Thursday," he said.
"Mr Breen advised he was too ill to work on Friday. He subsequently used Friday to travel to and attend a festival more than 700km from Sydney."
Senator Muir said he hoped to rebuild his team. Mr Littler did not return calls from Fairfax Media.
Senator Muir's office was rocked last week amid allegations of racism, sexism, bullying and even personal threats against the rookie senator at the heart of a dispute [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] that led to the sacking of Mr Druery.
Mr Druery, known as the ''preference whisperer'' for his success in getting micro parties elected, was escorted out of the Parliament by officers on Thursday night.
He was sacked by an email from Senator Muir that accused him of ''not getting along with other staff''.
But Mr Druery has laid the blame for his shock dismissal with Mr Littler, who he accused on Friday of plotting to take Senator Muir's seat in Parliament through a bizarre plot known as ''Plan Z''.
Fairfax Media last week obtained an incident report, written by Mr Breen to the Parliament, dated July 18.
It raised serious questions about Mr Littler's conduct during his fortnight in the Senator's Canberra office.
It outlines ''numerous clashes'' between Mr Druery and Mr Littler and states that ''at least one Senator'' has complained about Mr Littler.
''Mr Littler and Mr Druery had numerous clashes about Mr Littler's presence in the office, his volatile temper, aggression, offensive language, inappropriate remarks about Aboriginal people, Asians and women and his [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] disagreeable demeanour more generally when confronted by people or issues that did not comply with his world view,'' the letter states.
''[Littler] is a heavy smoker and appeared to have no consideration for the comfort of others in the confined space of the Canberra office.
''At least one senator complained about the way they were treated by Mr Littler as did lobbyists and staffers.
''It should also be said that Mr Druery has had a difficult relationship with Mr Littler ever since he, Mr Littler, made personal threats against Senator Muir prior to the Senator taking office over the appropriate pay-grade at which Mr Littler and his wife should be employed.''
Mr Breen ends the letter by saying: ''I have been advised by Human Resources at the Department of Finance that I have a legal obligation to make this incident report.''

We re still not any more knowledgeable about how [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] good the Los Angeles Lakers will be next season, if at all. One main focus for everyone will be Kobe Bryant coming back from his injury and what it will all mean for Jeremy Lin on a new team or Julius Randle trying to make an impact as a rookie with plenty of expectations.
Jeremy Lin escaped a situation in which he had a shooting guard playing next to him that was taking away all the possessions [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Lockit[/url] and decisions from him. He was misused and underused. The Lakers seem like a chance for a fresh start that might last just one year, but it might also be a case of
Julius Randle wasn t exactly聽the man聽in Kentucky, but he was a central piece. It s hard to see how he fits right now with how the Lakers are being built. Carlos Boozer is going to get a big role, and so will Jordan Hill, especially if Randle struggles early on defense. Like most players, Randle needs the ball in his hands to show his ability, and if the comparisons to Zach Randolph (the good things about him at least) are even remotely true.
And Bryant? He doesn t care about killing the cap situation for his team. He has his sights set on a sixth championship ring. He won t come close, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url] but this season s success and playoff chances rely on Bryant realizing he isn t the player he used to be.

A post on Marlin detective Rob Douglas鈥?Facebook page centered around how it frustrates him to go grocery shopping at the first of the month with people who receive public assistance or food stamps but have tattoos or expensive tire rims on their vehicles.
The rant ended with: 鈥淚 promise, if I ever snap and go on a killing spree, it will be in a supermarket on the first.鈥?
City officials are unsure when the post was first published, but Marlin City Manager R.C. Fletcher said he was made aware of the post Sunday. The Tribune-Herald received a screenshot of the post over the weekend. The paper has been unable to locate Douglas for comment.
Douglas, who has been with the department for five years, was placed on administrative leave Monday and will remain on leave until the internal police investigation concludes, Allen said.
The department doesn鈥檛 plan to request aid from the Texas Rangers because it appears there鈥檚 nothing illegal about the post, Fletcher said.
Fletcher said Douglas may have violated the city鈥檚 policy regarding appropriate online publishing, but the situation is still under investigation. The Tribune-Herald requested a copy of the city鈥檚 policy on online publishing and were told to request it under the state鈥檚 public records laws. The paper has done so. A copy of the policy has yet to be furnished by the city.

Goal setting is essential for training your brain. Once you have set your goals, you need to fill your mind with an image of you achieving that goal. Your brain thinks in terms of pictures. Hear a piece of [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/initiales-suede-ceinture-en-cuir-22]Initiales Suede ceinture en cuir[/url] information, and three days later, you ll remember 10 percent of it. Add a picture and you ll remember 65 per cent.
One of the ways that the great golfer Jack Nicklaus trained his brain was before he ever hit a golf shot, he stopped for a moment and played that shot as a video in his brain. First, he saw where he wanted the ball to land, sitting up on the green, and then he saw how it got there, trajectory, height in the air, and speed, and finally, he saw [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/inventeur-damier-ebene-ceinture-reversible-27]Inventeur Damier Ebene Ceinture r锟斤拷versible[/url] the swing he needed to turn the previous image into a reality.
Spend a few minutes each morning picturing your goals as pictures already achieved. See yourself with that new home, that new client, that new employee, that income, and that success.
[url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lingot-ceinture-23]Lingot ceinture[/url] Training your brain doesn t happen overnight, but it will happen if you dedicate yourself to a daily diet of positive thoughts, images, and encouragement. As Zig Ziglar says, People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.

Americans鈥?confidence in the U.S. economy fell last month to its [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] lowest point since March on souring views of the economy鈥檚 direction, according to .
To measure confidence Gallup averages Americans鈥?ratings of current economic conditions with their perceptions of whether the economy is getting better or worse. In July, 20 percent of Americans said economic conditions were excellent or good while 34 percent said they were poor, an unchanged amount since April. Fifty-seven percent of Americans said the economy is getting worse, the most since December.
July鈥檚 reading slipped largely because of an edgy week for financial markets the week of July 21, when stocks tumbled after pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 and increased the likelihood of tighter [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] Western sanctions against Russia. Other international events, like a debt crisis in Argentina, may have contributed to lower confidence.聽
Despite continued drops in the stock market, Americans鈥?confidence rebounded in the last few days of July and beginning of August, amidst positive reports of U.S. gross domestic product and job creation.
Middle- and lower-income Americans (earning less than $90,000 a year) led the decrease in confidence, while upper-income Americans鈥?(earning more than $90,000 a year) confidence remained the same from June.
This [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] year, economic confidence has remained generally stable, up from a dive in October during the federal government shut down.

Who trades a number one draft pick聽after聽already making the selection? The Cleveland Cavaliers are about to do it, as Andrew Wiggins is starting to realize that his dream of teaming up with LeBron James isn t going to happen. Maybe it s for the best, maybe it isn t. The one thing that is clear from this entire situation is that a trade involving the rookie out of Kansas and Kevin Love of the Minnesota Timberwolves is almost impossible to prevent at this point.
Why would the Cavs throwand depth? Kevin Love is a superstar and one of the most productive players in the NBA on the offensive side of [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] things. But we ve seen over the last few years that partnering All-Star players together doesn t always give you the results you wished for. The Cavs are probably going to be giving up more than just Wiggins. Depth, potential and a chance to be successful for a very long time, instead of just being reliant on the whims of LeBron James.
It s hard to say what s the driving force behind this trade, but strong rumors suggest that James and his agent are pushing for Love to join the team. After all, James is living proof that putting superstars together works two championships, four NBA finals with the Miami Heat, next to Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. What he forgets to tell them is that having a deep stable of reliable role players might be even more important than that magic Big Three moniker.
Wiggins realizes that his short time as a Cavs member is coming to an end. In his interview with ESPN, one embarrassing piece of Wiggins said that he wants to play for a team that wants him. It couldn t be any simpler than that. [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton Pas cher[/url] The Cavs have shown 0 love for the guy. Maybe he s not the next LeBRon James, but this isn t the Anthony Bennett situation. This is someone completely different, who is going to be a force in the NBA more likely than not.
And yet it s almost a forgone conclusion that this deal is going to happen. The details aren t completely clear how many players will arrive in Minnesota for Love, and how do the Philadelphia 76ers and Thaddeus Young fit into the picture. Yet Glenn Taylor, the owner of the Timberwolves, said that a trade is going to happen by August 23 or 24. Wiggins cannot be traded until August 23.
There s no conspiracy or big secret about it. The Cavaliers think, or maybe [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis vuitton[/url] just are doing James bidding, that going all-in now is their best chance of winning an NBA championship. From losers and a failure for four consecutive seasons into champions. Just like that. James needed four聽years after entering the league until he took the Cavaliers to the NBA finals. It s a different situation this time. No one has patience or vision to try and create something bigger and greater.

It is located about four blocks, or less than a mile, west of Bill Snyder Memorial Stadium in downtown Manhattan, Kansas.
University of Oklahoma
Norman, Oklahoma (pop. 118,197)
Located one block north of Memorial Stadium, Campus Corner has been the pregame home of students and fans since 1917, and features 60 different clubs, boutiques and sports bars covering several blocks along Boyd Avenue in Norman. Legendary bar O鈥機onnell鈥檚 joined the Campus Corner scene a few years back after the original location was razed to make room for more dorm rooms.
Texas Tech University
Lubbock (pop. 239,538)
Jones AT T Stadium is known as one of the most hostile places to play in the Big 12. It also has one of the largest tailgating traditions as well. Raider Alley next to the stadium is THE place to be on gameday. For after the game, as well as the night before, Lubbock is developing its Depot District, located near downtown at 19th and Buddy Holly Avenue, as a destination spot.
The budding district has met with mixed reviews in the past, but is widely known as the place where Texas Tech students spend weekend nights. It is developing into a go-to place when visiting Lubbock for a game, but competes with several well-known eating establishments and sports bars along Broadway, including local favorite Chimy鈥檚.
West Virginia University
Morgantown, West Virginia (pop. 30,666)
Most Big 12 fans will never visit Morgantown, but there are a few diehard fans who hit every game, home and away, including Baylor fans. In spite of the fact that Morgantown is the Big 12鈥檚 smallest market, West Virginia University is a high-profile football program and Morgantown has its own gameday traditions. When the lights dim at Mountaineer Stadium, most folks congregate in downtown Morgantown along High Street, the main street. There are 35 taverns and more than 100 retail shops in downtown Morgantown.
Oklahoma State University
Stillwater, Oklahoma (pop. 47,186)
Eskimo Joe鈥檚 consistently ranks as one of the top 10 college bars in America, and it鈥檚 only a five-minute walk from there to Boone Pickens Stadium. However, Eskimo Joe anchors only a small cluster of restaurants along Elm Street, and it鈥檚 almost always packed. Stillwater鈥檚 equivalent to a gameday entertainment district is a collection of taverns and bars along Washington Street known as The Strip. It鈥檚 a three-block-long pub crawl adjacent to the OSU campus and the only Big 12 school whose student-centric area is not in the heart of downtown.
Iowa State University
Ames, Iowa (Pop. 61,792)
Like Stillwater, Ames lacks a definitive downtown district for after the game. Most college students gather at several taverns along Welch Avenue west of Jack Trice Stadium in an area known as Campustown. The signature restaurant is Hickory Park east of the stadium along Highway 69, between I-35 and the stadium.
Texas Christian University
Fort Worth (pop. 792,727)
TCU isn鈥檛 the traditional college town set-up, being in the middle of Fort Worth. A TCU-centric entertainment district doesn鈥檛 really exist, although there are a number of eating places and taverns near Amon Carter Stadium and the campus. In terms of entertainment districts, most Waco residents have probably visited Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth, or the West Seventh district. At the very least, many Bear fans have likely been to Billy Bob鈥檚 or Bass Hall. It鈥檚 only 90 minutes from Waco.
University of Texas
Austin (pop. 885,400)
Austin鈥檚 Sixth Street entertainment district outgrew its gameday destination moniker a long time ago. The traditional seven-block stretch of Sixth Street from Congress Avenue to Interstate 35, just south of the University of Texas campus, is the center of a much larger entertainment district that plays host to millions of visitors each year. For gameday purposes, anywhere in the Sixth Street district is the place to be.

Most adults don t see it as bullying, they see it as discipline, he said before the presentation. But discipline means to teach. It does not mean punish, hurt, make afraid or distress. The research has been telling us for decades that approaches like this don t work and that they actually model aggressive behaviours and our children copy [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/initiales-suede-ceinture-en-cuir-22]Initiales Suede ceinture en cuir[/url] that and become bullies.
One in four Australian students is frequently bullied at school, a large-scale national survey found in 2009.

The National Centre Against Bullying conference is being held in Melbourne from Wednesday to search for strategies to reduce the prevalence and impact of bullying.
Dr Coulson said his intention was not to point his finger at teachers and parents to say you re all doing a lousy job .
But I m suggesting if parents and teachers are open to examining the way they treat their children, they might find they re not modelling the behaviour they want their children to exhibit, he said. It takes a lot of restraint on the part of the adults and teachers, and it requires a lot of self-awareness and insight. But as a society, our children will be better off if we stop being so power and control hungry and stop using bullying tactics.
Renowned psychologist [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/inventeur-damier-ebene-ceinture-reversible-27]Inventeur Damier Ebene Ceinture r锟斤拷versible[/url] Evelyn Field, who specialises in bullying, is also addressing the conference and agreed bullying was usually learnt in the home.
Bullies learn to be bullies from the role models of their parents, from inconsistent boundaries and from not enough love, she said.
She said it was vital parents connect with, listen to, and care for their children.
We need to have more democratic, collaborative families where you sit down and talk about [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lingot-ceinture-23]Lingot ceinture[/url] issues and you say what you feel and think, she said.
Kids have so much on after school, and then they re on their phone when they re meant to be eating dinner and then dad comes home late, so they don t sit around a table and have a meal together. I m not asking for much. If you sit around a table twice a week without any electronic blah, blah and you listen and talk, then you have a family that communicates and connects.

By Zachary FagensonMIAMI (Reuters) - The U.S. government on Tuesday filed criminal charges against the owner of a defunct Florida anti-aging clinic at the center of a doping scandal involving Major League Baseball players, according to court records.Anthony Bosch, 50, faces one count of conspiracy to distribute testosterone, a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.Bosch was among a group of people accused of illegally providing steroids to some of baseball's biggest stars, including New York Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez and Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, who was the National League's most valuable player in 2011 but missed much of the 2013 season due to a suspension for violating baseball's drug policy.Bosch's defunct Biogenesis clinic in Coral Gables also supplied performance-enhancing drugs to high school athletes, judges and coaches, authorities said.Bosch is charged with distributing the drug between October 2008 and December 2012, according to court filings.His former business partner, Carlos Javier Acevedo, was also charged with one count each of distributing testosterone and of distributing a stimulant between December 2009 and June 2013. He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison for the first charge and 20 years for the latter.Bosch and his three business partners in the anti-aging clinic were sued by Major League Baseball in 2013.He and other members of his supply and distribution network were due in Miami federal court for a first appearance on Tuesday, the Miami Herald reported.Rodriguez, Braun and 11 other players were suspended in August 2013 after being implicated in an investigation into Biogenesis. None of the athletes are accused of a crime, the newspaper said, and the charging documents on Tuesday do not identify them by name.Other prominent players linked to the Biogenesis doping scandal include Baltimore Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz, Everth Cabrera of the San Diego Padres and Jhonny Peralta of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Others are also believed to be in discussions to leave Financial Wisdom and Godfrey Pembroke and use their own licence or look for a small independent boutique.
It comes as the debate on vertical integration is set to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-speedy-73]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] heat up after the Commonwealth Bank financial planning scandal exposed flaws in the model and the Murray inquiry moves towards a final recommendation on whether banks should be allowed to own the financial planners who sell the products the banks manufacture.
Advertisement
Chairman of the inquiry David Murray has said he will not shy away from making tough decisions. This could include the formal separation of product from advice and forcing vertically integrated businesses to divest either their product or advice businesses to remove conflicts.
It also comes as the financial planning industry works towards setting up a national register for financial advisers, which is expected to be run by the corporate regulator, ASIC.
A meeting was held last week which included discussing what might be included on the register, such as the name of each adviser, their education qualifications, professional membership, details of any complaints or sanctions, the licensee, and who owns the licence. 
A register would stop shoddy advisers moving from one group to another because their history would be there for all to see, as would their education.
It is understood that the banks will lobby to exclude releasing information on who owns the licence on the register. A cynic could be forgiven for thinking it is because they don t want consumers to know they are behind the many brands. For instance CBA is behind Financial Wisdom, Colonial and Count. NAB is behind MLC, Garvan and Godfrey Pembroke and AMP is behind Charter, Hillross and AXA.
Over the past decade or so banks have moved into wealth management and financial planning to the point where the industry is now more than 80 per cent owned or tied to the big four banks and AMP.
A survey by Roy Morgan this week revealed an alarmingly high level of confusion among consumers about whether the financial planners are independent or linked to the banks, given the different brands they operate under.
For instance, more than 55 per cent of clients using Commonwealth Bank s Financial Wisdom dealers believed the dealer group was independent rather than tied to the bank s subsidiary.
This is despite all the publicity on financial planners due to the CBA scandal and the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-siracusa-75]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] debate over the wind-back of the future of financial advice reforms.
The CBA financial planning scandal and shoddy practices at Macquarie Private Wealth have put the spotlight on the sector and its many conflicts and shortcomings.
What has emerged is the current structure of vertical integration is inherently conflicted and customers don t realise that many of the financial planners are owned by the banks.
The conflicts of interest of the vertically integrated wealth management model has been described as allowing a pharmaceutical company to own doctors, who are partly remunerated by the pharmaceutical company and that company ascribes certain targets such as the number of pills and brand the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-wilshire-76]Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] doctors must sell. 
CBA whistleblower and former financial planner Jeff Morris said developments at Fortnum and Ethical Financial were the start of a trend against the fatally flawed , vertically integrated model, whereby product manufacturers seek to control financial advice businesses in order to use them as a sales channel. This trend may be set to continue as more and more advisers realise that vertical integration is the root of all evil in this industry and recognise that financial planning will never make the transition from an industry to a true profession until this fundamental conflict of interest is removed, he warned.
A separate study by Roy Morgan conducted in April showed a lack of trust in the sector, with only 28 per cent of people rating financial planners very high or high for ethics and honesty.
The spotlight has well and truly turned to advisers and the broken model of vertical integration. Whatever the banks argue about best interests, the model removes the independence that planners require to carry out that best-interest role in relation to clients because their activities are driven by the banks agenda.
As one adviser says: This has been a creeping outcome of government and regulatory negligence and inaction over many years so much so that the vast majority of planners are now owned by banks. How can this business model ever hope to ensure that the needs of the client are upheld? Something needs to be done to change this broken model. Indeed.

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.

Andy Cohen: Joe Philbin Embraces This Challenge
By on August 4, 2014 at 5:55 am
Andy Cohen In The Morning appears on dolphins.com every Monday through Friday, except for the bye week, until the end of the season. The column will be posted each day at 6 a.m.聽Be sure to follow Andy Cohen on Twitter at聽
Have a question for A.C.? Submit your questions to Andy Cohen on Twitter at聽.聽
##############
Without prodding, without the slightest hesitation, Joe Philbin rattles off the dates as if he will never forget them.
鈥淒ecember 22nd and December 29th have been sticking in my craw for a [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON[/url] long time,鈥?he said.
Those were the dates of the season-ending losses to the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, two games that changed the complexion of the 2013 season. The Dolphins were 8-6 and had a real shot of making the playoffs. But it all came apart in those two losses. A season of real hope quickly turned to average, an 8-8 record leaving its second-year head coach frustrated, disappointed and searching for answers.
鈥?that happened in those games,鈥?Philbin said. 鈥淚t wasn鈥檛 the way any of us wanted the season to end.鈥?
Joe Philbin sits in his office on this late Sunday afternoon, briefly looking back at what could have been, but far more intent on gazing straight ahead toward his third season leading this franchise. Philbin will tell you that this is the most talent he鈥檚 had on the roster since he arrived, that the upgrade in depth is evident at every practice.
鈥淭hings can change in a hurry in this league, but I feel good about this roster,鈥?he said. 鈥淚 believe in these players. We made some incremental improvements last season. It wasn鈥檛 as much as I wanted or as sudden as I wanted, but I am convinced we are heading in the right direction.鈥?
And Joe Philbin feels he, as the head coach, is heading in the right direction as well. He readily admits that he鈥檚 a better coach today than he was three training camps ago. He understands his players better. He communicates with them better. He has a better feel for the demands and challenges of his job.
鈥淚 loved this job when I took it,鈥?he says, 鈥溾€?
What he doesn鈥檛 love is losing. He doesn鈥檛 love remembering dates on a [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON solders[/url] schedule that bring back sour memories. He doesn鈥檛 love a 15-17 record in his two seasons here. That the Dolphins were in position to make the playoffs after 14 games last season showed promise. But those two losses only underlined how much work remained.
鈥淭o get as close as we did shows a lot about our guys,鈥?Philbin said. 鈥淏ut when you look closer you鈥檝e got to ask: Why didn鈥檛 we? What are some of the things we didn鈥檛 do? More than anything else, it showed me we still have a lot of room for development.鈥?
I truly like and respect this man. He is committed to this organization, committed to the people around him who he praises from his top assistants to the guy who cuts the grass on the practice field at night. He is so even keel, so calculating, so unbelievably organized. And, yes, so passionate,
鈥淚t has been a privilege to serve as head coach of the Dolphins,鈥?he tells me.
鈥淚 try to connect with our fans as much as possible. You can feel their passion. I listen when they say to me: 鈥楥oach, we are going to do it this year. Coach, we have a lot of confidence in you. Coach, we鈥檙e going all the way.鈥?
鈥淵ou love to hear people who are as passionate as that. I share their passion and enthusiasm for this season. I want them to rest assured I am as passionate as they are and I鈥檓 going to work tirelessly to help that dream come true.鈥?
The events of last season, both on and off the field, led . He realized he needed to communicate better and to have a more thorough feel of the mindset of his players. So he scheduled one-on-one meetings with most of his players and he listened intently. But that鈥檚 not all: He鈥檚 personally even handling bed check every night in training camp to stay close to his players. Yep, that鈥檚 Coach Philbin making sure the lights are out.
鈥淚 asked the guys a lot of questions,鈥?Philbin said of the one-on-one meetings. 鈥淲hat is your favorite thing about being a Dolphin? What is one thing you would change about the program and it didn鈥檛 matter the cost? It was interesting to get a perspective from the guys. The more information you have the better decisions you can make.鈥?
But communication is one thing; performance is another. just as he expects his players to be better players. He has outlined to them his expectations, his goals.
鈥淵ou always want to improve in your coaching,鈥?he said. 鈥淚 tell my players I want them to be a better football team in November and December than they were in the opening week. As a coach, you want to get better. I feel good about where I鈥檝e come since year one.鈥?
But Philbin will be the first to tell you it鈥檚 all about winning. He knows that鈥檚 how he鈥檒l be judged. He embraces that. He talks of the great Dolphins teams of the 70鈥檚 and how he would love nothing more than to help write a new chapter.
This is an important training camp, an important time. and so many pieces to craft together in forming the fabric of this football team.
Joe Philbin is clearly ready for the challenge.
(On Tuesday, AC in the AM takes a close look at two of the team鈥檚 most versatile players.)

Gonzalez impressive again in Lehigh Valley IronPigs' 7-1 win over DurhamThe IronPigs Clete Thomas slides home to score the first run of the (EMILY PAINE, THE MORNING )August 04, 2014|By Jeff Schuler, Of The MorningCameron Rupp caught Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez in spring training."His command was a little iffy he had trouble throwing strikes and the velocity wasn't there," the IronPigs catcher said of Gonzalez, a Cuban defector who received a $12-million, four-year major league contract from the Phillies last August after defecting from Cuba earlier in 2013."He was a bit more raw [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] than what I had anticipated not as polished, maybe I should say, you might expect of an older kid," IronPigs manager Dave Brundage said. "I had never seen him, never seen video on him. But you obviously knew that someone in there liked his arm."Fast forward about five months, boith Rupp and Brundage are seeing a much different pitcher."It comes out a lot different than it did in the spring," Rupp said after Gonzalez looked sharp again in his second outing with Lehigh Valley during a 7-1 win over Durham Monday night before 9,564 fans at Coca-Cola Park.Greg Smith allowed one run over seven innings to pick up his first victory in a month and Maikel Franco had two hits and knocked in two runs for the IronPigs (53-63), who close out the six-game home stand with a 11:35 a.m. start today against the Bulls.When he signed last August, some projected Gonzelez as a member of the Phillies rotation coming out fo camp. But slowed by a sore shoulder and mechanical issues, Gonzalez was left behind in Clearwater when the season opened and didn't throw his first official minor league pitch until May 15 with the Single-A Threshers and has been working his way up the ladder since.Monday's scoreless inning, his second since joining the team on Friday, lowered his overall ERA this season to 3.69 in 31 2/3 innings over the three levels, with 37 strikeouts and 16 walks.In 17 1/3 innings between Reading and the IronPigs, Gonzalez has a 2.60 ERA (five earned runs), with 26 strikeouts and seven walks."It's a complete 180-degree change," IronPigs pitching coach Ray Burris said. "There were things in his mechanics that had to be ironed out, and he's a much different pitcher."Although Burris said [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] he believes the radar gun is overrated, Gonzalez hit 96 mph on several of his 12 pitches."I think he was better tonight [than his Saturday IronPigs debut]," Brundage said. "He was sharper, he had better command of his fastball, more velocity, more aggressive you could see he had more life tonight.""He was throwing harder and his ball was in the zone more than it was the other night," said Rupp, who also caught Gonzalez at Clearwater while the catcher was rehabbing his oblique strain. "He missed a lot of barrels and that's [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] what he gets paid to do."Gonzalez gave up a two-out double."He established his fastball and then used his secondary pitches well after the hit," Burris said.Brundage said the next step in Gonzalez's development is to see him get "stretched out" a little bit with two-inning outings and back-to-back outingsLuis Garcia closed out with a perfect ninth as the three pitchers combined to throw just 107 pitches without a walk.Faced with what he called a "thin" bullpen before the game, Brundage hoped for an extended outing from Smith, and the veteran left-hander, seeking his first victory since July 1 at Scranton, complied.Smith (8-8) allowed one run, a seventh-inning home run by Wilson Betemit. He struck out four and didn't walk a batter while throwing 57 of his 86 pitches for strikes.It was Smith's first start at Coca-Cola Park since June 26, when he blanked Rochester on two hits over six innings.His teammates gave him plenty of offensive support, with a three-run third and a four-run fourth.Twitter: @jschulermcFeatured ArticlesMore:Related ArticlesMay 24, 2014June 26, 2014March 22, 2014September 3, 2013April 8, 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.

JERUSALEM Fighting between Israel and Hamas, the extremist Islamic faction ruling Gaza, continued on Sunday for the 27th day in a row, without so much as a pause to acknowledge the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] diplomatic efforts to end the war underway in Cairo.
A mid-afternoon barrage of rockets launched from Gaza at Tel Aviv was seen to indicate possible difficulties in the Egypt-sponsored negotiations, which Israel declined to attend. 
I have little doubt that the rocket fire on Tel Aviv was meant to emphasize their insistence on preconditions before halting attacks

Though 's latest single, "Don't," was inspired by a bitter breakup, the singer has taken a more optimistic approach with the track's new music video. Directed by Emil Nava, the clip focuses on one dancer's journey from poverty to wealth, as he limberly pops and locks his way from the ghetto to a mansion.

Ed Sheeran s Heartache and Wildest Nights Inspire New LP [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-corners-towel-scarf-38]Louis Vuitton Corners Towel Scarf[/url]
The video opens with a young man sleeping outside on a weather-beaten mattress but once Sheeran's soulful falsetto kicks in, he wakes up and begins his epic dance voyage. After some quick breakdancing, the man walks into his house and puts on a shirt; from there, he slips in and out of several increasingly nice homes (one featuring a not-so-subtle plug for Beats By Dre [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/ceinture-louis-vuitton-17]Ceinture Louis Vuitton[/url] headphones) and finally arrives at a mansion, where he changes into a suit and shows off some Matrix-styled moves.
"Don't" is the second single from Sheeran's eclectic second album, , which came out in June. He previously on SNL back in April; that same month, he opened up to about the song's origins, saying the funky cut was inspired by a real-life [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/anagramme-ceinture-19]Anagramme ceinture[/url] romance with another singer who slept with one of Sheeran's close friends while they were staying in the same hotel. But despite internet rumors, the track wasn't written about Taylor Swift, a songwriter known for penning tracks of romantic revenge.
"It's 100 percent not about Taylor," he said. "Taylor's one of these people that if you piss her off and she writes a song about you, it's not good news for you. I've never dated Taylor. I've dated a few singers, though."

"American Ninja Warrior" returned to Denver Monday night for the last city finals of the NBC show, sending the final [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] 15 contestants on to Las Vegas. The Las Vegas finals begin next Monday at 9 p.m. EDT, with the Season 6 finale set for Sept. 15.
After Kacy Catanzaro became the first woman to qualify for the Las Vegas finals at the Dallas city finals (three women finished regional qualifying courses for the first time this Season), all eyes were on Meagan Martin to see if she would be next. However, even with Catanzaro cheering her on from the sidelines, Martin could not make it, going out on the 鈥渟pikes into cargo net.鈥?

Denver still made history, though, as Jon Stewart, 52, became the oldest competitor to complete a city finals course on 鈥淎merican Ninja Warrior.鈥?Stewart finished with a time of 8:58:50 to punch his ticket to Vegas.
Isaac Caldiero finished the course with the fastest time, clocking in at a whirlwind 5:48:41. Caldiero and Stewart were two of only six competitors who finished the course, including Paul Kasemir, Brian Arnold, Ian Dory, and Dr. Noah Kaufman. Fans may remember Arnold [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] from last season's Las Vegas finals where he went further than any American ever on stage 3.

Rounding out the 15 who will advance to Las Vegas were the nine competitors who went far enough in the course the fastest: Daniel Larson-Fine, Justin Kydd, Karson Voiles, Yen Chen, Dan Entmacher, Robin Pietschmann, Matthew Wilder, Joel Brady, and Lance Pekus. All fifteen will join the finalists from the four other cities (Dallas, Venice Beach, St. Louis, and Miami) in Las Vegas.
Tune in for the start of the Season 6 Las Vegas finals on Monday, Aug. 11, at 9 p.m. EDT on NBC.

According to , the Timberwolves will also benefit if Wiggins move in. Aside from avoiding possible conflicts with the disgruntled Kevin Love who badly wants to be in the playoffs, putting Wiggins in the small forward position will be complimentary to the presence [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] of point guard Ricky Rubio. If Wiggins stayed in Cleveland, he will have to divide his potential with fellow No. 1 picks LeBron James and Kyrie Irving. In Minnesota, he can explore and fully realize his potential as the leading scorer.
Taylor said, "I think when you move somebody like Kevin, who's been an All-Star, that you've got to get a number of players on your team that have the potential of replacing him. Flip has looked at this team and offensively, he's got a pretty good [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] team. Defensively, it's got to get better, so I think that's where some of the areas will be replaced."
Both Love and Wiggins expressed that they wanted to play alongside LeBron James. If a deal should push through, back-to-back Toronto-born No. 1 picks would be transferred to Minnesota. The Wolves are also looking at Thaddeus Young to replace Kevin Love. Previously, the Wolves wanted Klay Thompson but when it became clear [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] that the Golden State Warriors would not release him even for Love, Minnesota looked closer at the Cavs' offer.

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.

On Tuesday, Aug. 5, at 5:45 p.m. PT/8:45 p.m. ET, Yahoo Live will livestream Gavin DeGraw鈥檚 concert from the Red Hat Amphitheater in Raleigh, NC. Tune in to watch!

A few years ago Gavin DeGraw was introduced to the songwriter for the stars, Diane Warren (Beyonce, Elton John, Aerosmith), and the two immediately hit it off. Since then, Warren periodically sent songs to DeGraw to consider recording, but he always politely resisted.
As a songwriter, I鈥檓 always hesitant to release someone else鈥檚 song,鈥?DeGraw told Yahoo Music. 鈥淭hen about two months ago, Diane sent me this beautiful song she wrote for the movie Dolphin Tale 2 called 鈥淵ou Got Me,鈥?and I just connected with it. For me it was undeniable and I was hooked.鈥?
DeGraw demoed the song with Warren at her studio and they recorded it with producer Mark Johnson. On July 28, DeGraw posted the song on iTunes and the track was immediately embraced.
That鈥檚 hardly a surprise. 鈥淵ou Got Me鈥?begins as a strummy acoustic song with delicately swelling strings and DeGraw鈥檚 earnest, assuring vocals. As it builds, the orchestration becomes more prominent and a piano fleshes out the tune. By the end, there鈥檚 a full arrangement of electronic beats topping the more organic orchestration, as DeGraw sings lines like, 鈥淚鈥檒l be the one to lead you home/I鈥檒l be the one to keep you warm/ I鈥檒l take you then out of the storm/When you can鈥檛 stand I鈥檒l stand up for you.鈥?
鈥淭he song and the film make for a beautiful pairing,鈥?DeGraw said of the single for the movie, which stars Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd and opens September 12. 鈥淥ne of the things that appealed to me about the movie was the type [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 30[/url] of work the dolphin does working with [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] wounded warriors and kids who need help. That鈥檚 really amazing stuff. Helping veterans and people in need is really important.鈥?
Degraw will debut 鈥淵ou Got Me鈥?onstage for the first time August 4 in Raleigh, North Carolina at the Red Hat Amphitheater; the concert will be streamed live by Yahoo and Live Nation. 鈥淚鈥檓 really looking forward to playing the song at the show,鈥?DeGraw said. 鈥淓very time you get to unveil something brand new you get a little bit of that adrenaline rush. You have that anxiety and that excitement of, 鈥榃ell, I hope I can do it as I want it performed.鈥?Since it鈥檚 brand new, you鈥檙e still a little bit uncertain, but that鈥檚 part of the excitement about it. It鈥檚 like skydiving. You never know what鈥檚 going to happen.鈥?
The past year has been filled with career highlights for DeGraw. Last October, he released his fifth studio album, Make a Move, which debuted at number 10 on the Billboard album chart, and he opened for his greatest songwriting influence, Billy Joel, for much of February, March, and April.
鈥淚 saw Billy Joel play live when I was 15 and I said, 鈥楾hat鈥檚 it. That鈥檚 what I want to do!鈥欌€?enthused DeGraw. 鈥淪o getting a phone call from his office to play those shows was incredible 鈥?about the greatest dream come true I could imagine.鈥?
DeGraw met Joel through Richie Canata, who played with Joel from 1976 to 1981 and later performed late-night New York ballroom shows with DeGraw. The two kept in touch and when Joel played Madison Square Garden in the mid aughts, Canata invited DeGraw to attend and brought him backstage to meet Joel.
鈥淏illy said, 鈥楬ey, I鈥檝e been reading about you, man.鈥欌€?DeGraw said. 鈥淭hen years later my pops, who鈥檚 my manager, gives me a shout. He said, 鈥楬ey, check this out. Billy Joel wants you to open for him!鈥?It was such a special opportunity. I got to play Madison Square Garden with him a whole bunch of times; Wrigley Field, Fenway Park, the Hollywood Bowl, you name it. It鈥檚 been a real trip.鈥?
With U.S. dates scheduled through the end of August 鈥?including another Madison Square Garden show with Joel August 7 鈥?and a European tour lined up for September, DeGraw is insanely busy, but that hasn鈥檛 stopped him from writing new songs in his tour bus or hotel. 鈥淚 write new stuff every day,鈥?he said. 鈥淚鈥檓 always working on new ideas and calling people and asking them if they want to work with me on something. I鈥檝e already written some new songs and some of it is ready to go, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] some of it is still in the working stages. But I think there are a couple champions in there. We鈥檒l just have to wait and see.鈥?
While it鈥檚 too early to tell what his next album will sound like, DeGraw said some of his new songs have a nightlife party vibe, while others are more introspective. 鈥淎s many moods as you can have throughout the day, I write about all of those,鈥?DeGraw said. 鈥淚 would compare some of the songs to Make a Move, but every time you do something new there鈥檚 going to be an element of what was and what鈥檚 going to be. I never want to do the same thing over and over. There鈥檚 an element of continuity so far, but there are certainly some new flavors.鈥?

WASHINGTON (AP) 鈥?The Obama administration on Tuesday announced $14 billion in commitments from U.S. businesses to invest in Africa, as representatives from nearly 100 American and African companies gathered in Washington to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] discuss ways to boost economic partnerships.During a panel discussion with CEOs, former President Bill Clinton declared that the U.S. has "only barely scratched the surface" of Africa's economic potential.Indeed, Africa's economy is enjoying rapid advancement. The continent is home to six of the world's fastest-growing economies. And a decade of solid growth has created a middle class with increased spending power 鈥?350 million strong in 2010 by the African Development Bank's count, up from 220 million in 2000.Other nations, most notably China, have been moving aggressively to tap into growing African markets. China surpassed the U.S. as Africa's largest trading partner in 2009."We also realize we have some catching up to do," said Michael Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor and a billionaire businessman. "We are letting Europe and China go faster than the U.S."President Barack Obama was [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] scheduled to address the business summit Tuesday afternoon. The American companies represented at the day-long meeting include Chevron, Coca-Cola Company, IBM and Mastercard.Also participating in the forum was Jeff Immelt, the CEO of General Electric. During the panel moderated by Clinton, Immelt appealed to the U.S. Congress to renew the charter for the Export-Import Bank, which helps finance American exports.Some Republicans want to shutter the bank when Congress returns from recess next month, arguing that the bank's spending is politically motivated and unnecessary. But Immelt said Tuesday that the bank signals to other countries that the U.S. government is interested in investing overseas."The fact that we have to sit here and argue for it is just wrong," he said.The business commitments being announced by the Obama administration Tuesday include a $2 billion investment by GE by 2018, $200 million in investments across Africa by Marriott, and a $66 million commitment by IBM to provide technology services to Ghana's Fidelity Bank.The business forum is part of a broader U.S.-Africa summit being held in Washington this week. Nearly 50 African heads of state are in Washington for the three-day conference.Beyond boosting business ties, the summit also focuses on security partnerships and supporting a new generation of African leaders._Follow Julie Pace at http://twitter.com/jpaceDC

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 Speedy Round[/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. 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 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.

Olympic team chef de mission Kitty Chiller insists a top-five finish is a realistic goal for Australia at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games despite only coming 10th in London two years ago.
Chiller outlined some of the AOC goals for Rio at a press conference in Sydney to mark two years until the start of the 2016 Games.
She said Australia would get a better idea of where [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-large-shawl-scarf-16]Louis Vuitton Large Shawl Scarf[/url] it stands after the next couple of months, with world championships or major international events scheduled in several sports including sailing, triathlon, swimming, rowing and basketball.
We've been looking at benchmark events for the last year and at the moment we're sitting seventh in the benchmark events, Chiller told reporters.
Advertisement
In the next two months, there's a lot of world championships coming up that are really going to give us a very good indication of where we are sitting.
I think it is realistic. I wouldn't set a goal and put the expectations on our athletes in our team if I didn't think it was a realistic goal.
Chiller anticipated Australia would take a team of around 476 to Brazil, though [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-shawl-15]Louis Vuitton Shawl[/url] that number was based on qualifying teams for every event, which didn't happen in London, where the men's [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-silk-scarf-43]Louis Vuitton Silk Scarf[/url] and women's football teams missed out.
That will be just shy of the biggest away team, which was 483 athletes in Athens in 2004, Chiller said.
The number of course relies on several qualifications. We're hoping for full qualification, especially from our team sports.
The Seven Network has signed an agreement for rights across all media platforms to the 2016 and 2020 Games and the 2018 Winter Olympics.
Six more team leaders were announced to add to the 10 selected in April, with notable appointments including major winner Ian Baker-Finch (golf) and former Wallabies five-eighth Scott Bowen (women's rugby sevens team).

RENTON The defensive line prospect comes off the Seahawks practice field and stops to honor a lone interview request.Like others new to the team, he s just fighting for a spot, hoping to earn a role. So he s busy learning the responsibilities of three [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton Soldes[/url] different line positions. He s familiar with football s axiom: The more you know, the better chance you can help the team.Sounds like a rookie, right?Not hardly. It s Kevin Williams, the most decorated player on the 2014 Seahawks roster.Williams is entering his 12th NFL season, having played 11 previously with the Minnesota Vikings in which he was five times named an All-Pro while being voted to six Pro Bowls.Having been named to the all-decade team for the 2000s, Williams could end up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.Now, having been picked up as a free agent in June, he s just trying to fit in with the Seahawks. I m just trying to help out as I can, Williams said Monday. Whether it be at the nose, at the 3 (technique), at the 5 (technique). Whatever position they put me in, I want to learn it and know it. The way they play the line here, it s good to know everybody s position, you never know where you might be shuffled around and get your reps. That attitude is exactly why the Seahawks wanted him. Despite his showy r sum , Williams is a low-maintenance, high-energy, egoless player who is considered one of the all-time great teammates. Kevin really is the guy who does bring intangibles, coach Pete Carroll said. He s a great competitor, been a fantastic leader who has been a great guy in (the Vikings) locker room for years. Everybody speaks so highly of him. He s got tremendous character, so that kind of wisdom that you bring to a team is always beneficial. Having lost that veteran influence on the defensive line with the likes of Red Bryant and Chris Clemons this offseason, the 33-year-old Williams has obvious appeal particularly as he has been so durable and appears to have more football left in his career.The ninth overall pick in the 2003 draft, Williams has missed only five games in 11 seasons, having started 171 in the NFL. Not only does he have 60 sacks as an interior lineman, his five interceptions are an NFL record for defensive tackles.Most impressively, he s never played fewer than 14 games in a season, and last year he played more than 700 snaps, far more than any defensive lineman on the Seahawks rotation. He s an experienced guy who is really intelligent and able to come in and pick up the scheme quickly, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/23-sac-porte-epaule]Sac port锟斤拷 锟斤拷paule[/url] said Travis Jones, the Seahawks defensive line coach. We re expecting him to come in and contribute to our group. He s a smart guy he wanted to know all the spots. He understands that the more you know the more value you are to the team. Other teams knew that too, as several sought his services, including New England, which reportedly offered more money than Seattle. But he wanted to join the defending Super Bowl champions, as he had liked what he saw whenever he watched the Seattle defense. You could see up front their defense had a lot of fun rolling guys in and out, he said. My career in Minnesota was great, but we didn t have the luxury of rotating guys the way they do. I talked to them about it and thought it was the best fit for me. Williams said he could envision playing fewer snaps yet getting more production as a result of being fresh. It could, in fact, be a way to lengthen his career.When asked about it being his 12th camp, he groaned: Don t remind me. But he s never missed one via holdout or injury his entire career. My biggest thing, since I m not a big talker, is showing up and doing my work and leading by example, he said. I was brought up by a bunch of old guys who taught me you can t make the team if you re on the sideline or in the training room. With some injuries already hitting the depth at defensive line, the signing of Williams becomes even more important. But how could a team not benefit from having a player with his attitude and experience in the locker room and on the field? I ve been blessed to [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/24-sac-porte-main]Sac port锟斤拷 main[/url] have a good career and I hope to keep that going here, he said. I m excited to bring whatever expertise and knowledge I can to this group and try to help. Whether he ends up being a backup or a rotational guy with a steady role, he s fine as long as the team can again be a contender. I ve been an under-the-radar guy all my career, he said. I just show up and make plays and they can give everybody else the accolades for all I care. I just love playing the game and I m excited to do it here.

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.

The start of high school football practice in the Central Section on Monday found [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] unseasonably cool temperatures in the 80s and new challenges for Tim Simons and Derrick Chachere.Simons, 72, has returned for a second go-around at Clovis North his 29th overall as a prep coach.Chachere, about to turn 47, is a former Arena Football League player and assistant coach taking over at Roosevelt his first with the lead whistle."It's something that's always been in the back of my mind," says Chachere, who assisted at Clovis West and Memorial the past three seasons.It's never left the mind of Fresno Athletic Hall of Famer Simons, really."For me," he says, "new challenges in life are good because I don't do anything well. I play golf, but I'm lousy at it."That's fine because he has balanced his hobbies quite well with football, going 235-85-7 in 28 years at four schools mainly, Clovis (220-59-5, 1976-99)."It's kind of like my child, this (Clovis North) program," says Simons, who launched it with Broncos freshmen in 2007.Then it was junior varsity for one year and their first two varsity seasons before heart surgery forced him out in 2011.He then returned as a Fresno City College assistant for two seasons before climbing back into the saddle at Clovis North following Cory Hall's resignation: "Because they asked me."Simons gave it some thought, but it didn't take long to say "Yes."He did [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] acknowledge that Broncos administrators "reached out" for a few other candidates before they reached back for him.In fact, Simons as the school's assistant athletic director was involved in the recruiting process of replacing Hall, who went 32-8 with two Central Section titles and a runner-up finish in three seasons."They made a run at a couple other guys and there were a lot of real quality coaches who applied, but things didn't work out," Simons says. "Then they asked me."The administrators did not, however, ask him for a timeline commitment: "No, and the only thing I said about that was I'd go year by year. I feel great; healthier than I've been for a long time, and that's the key. I couldn't do this if I weren't."Simons' 233 wins as a Central Section coach (he began his career with one season at Lennox High in Southern California) trail only the late Leo Robinson of Woodlake (290-129-11, 41 years) in section history, according to historian Bob Barnett."I don't want to catch Leo Robinson," Simons says. "Nobody's supposed to catch Leo because he was the guy."Besides, that's probably out of the time frame."Roosevelt, meanwhile, went 6-6 last season under Casey Quinn, who has since taken over the program at Chavez in Delano.Chachere will be the third coach in as many years at Roosevelt, which last won a league title 51 years ago, according to Barnett.Chachere's wife, Romy, has worked for years for the Fresno County Board of Education as an after school program specialist."She said, 'Those kids at Roosevelt need you,' " the coach says. "I love the game and I know how to change men's lives. There's a lot of guys at Roosevelt who don't have a plan past high school, even if they make it that far. That's the reason I coach to show young men there are more opportunities than they're even aware of."Chachere's son, Andre, is a freshman defensive back [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] at San Jose State after starring at Clovis West. And his younger brother, Dante, is a standout quarterback at Kastner Intermediate of the Clovis West district.

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.

"I don't want anybody to feel sorry for me, or pity me," Wilson said in a statement released by the team. "I lived my dream. A lot of people only get to dream their dream. I lived that dream. Now I have a chance to dream another dream and live that, too."
Wilson noted that he braced himself for the bad news, though a small part of him hoped that he'd be wrong.
"I'm thankful that I can literally walk away from the game and that I am healthy and capable of doing the same things I have done all my life, except play football," said Wilson. "I always try to find the positive in everything. This morning when I saw Dr. Cammisa and Dr. Warren, I didn't hear what I wanted to hear, but I expected that what they told me could be a possibility.
"I prayed this morning before I went to see them that they would tell me what God would tell me. He put His answer in them to relay to me."
Head coach Tom Coughlin, who said he told Wilson that he would always be welcomed at the facility, lauded the 23-year-old for his maturity and his handling of what some might consider to be a deflating situation.
"The whole idea for David is that he fulfilled his dream," said Coughlin, who added that [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] he told Wilson to keep in touch regarding his plans moving forward.
"Even though his career was cut short, he remains positive and believes God has a plan. He has accepted this in such a way that is a great example for all of us. There is no self-pity. David is a strong person and extremely optimistic. He will meet his next challenge in life with the same enthusiasm he approached football."
From the moment Wilson had his surgery in January, they began making contingency plans. New York signed unrestricted free agent Rashad Jennings from the Raiders.
They also used a fourth-round draft pick to Boston College star Andre Williams, who last year became only the 16th player in college history to rush for more than [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] 2,000 yards in a season (2,117); and re-signed Peyton Hillis, who did well for them last year when injuries struck down Andre Brown and Brandon Jacobs.
Coughlin, however, disputed that concept, saying that every year, they bring in a certain number of players at every position to help fill out the snap distribution at training camp.
"If you look at the preseason roster, there's a lot of years where we've had six runners and one fullback, for example," he said. "The preparation, the numbers are training camp numbers. That's just the way it is."
Still, he admitted that the possibility of Wilson not being able to make it to opening day always loomed in the back of his mind.
"Certainly it's on your mind. You have to put yourself in a position whereby if it doesn't work the way you want it to work, you have some answers.
"I don't like speculation, but you always have the numbers you need or your camp even though you're trying as best you can and hoping and praying that someone who's been injured comes back and plays at a high level."
While the Giants will look to move on without the effervescent Wilson -- Coughlin told reporters that the team has enough players at the position to make it through the rest of training camp -- Wilson's latest Instagram post on his brief NFL career sounded like a man who was at peace with his circumstances:
"At age 8 I told my #Dad I wanted to play football in THE NFL at this point in my life I have done that. Even Blessed to be drafted in the 1st round. Broke and set RECORDS, scored Touchdowns, and all that follows. It's a great feeling to live out dream. Unfortunately that has been paused but I am blessed that I am able to walk away from this game healthy and still able to be me with no restrictions pain or struggle and So all I ask is please don't be sorry or pity ME that's just one chapter life goes on and I'm [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton W[/url] glad I can live it. Once a Giant always a #Giant #pocketrocket"

Scroll through country radio these days and you're bound to hear a whistle by a foursome that's as catchy as it is zestful. To say Little Big Town's "Day Drinking," with its whimsical hooks, is anything less than intoxicating (in more ways than one) would be an injustice. 
Related
Little Big Town s Day Drinking Video
The four members of [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-cosmic-blossom-63]LV Cosmic Blossom[/url] the band, Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook, knew early on that "Day Drinking" would be the first single off of their upcoming Pain Killer album after members of their management team had emphatic reactions. 
"Our manager freaked out when he heard it," Fairchild recalls.
"Our publisher did, too," Sweet adds. "We were cautiously optimistic, so we underplayed it a little."
The song, however, embraced everything about summer sunshine, beaches, happiness, painfully long office days and, of course, a few beverages. In the spirit of their current single, Rolling Stone Country sat down with the group prior to a show in Las Vegas to go over their favorite summer anthems of all time. Listen to Little Big Town's hand-picked, sun-soaked tracks via the Spotify playlist below, followed by their commentary on each song.

"Margaritaville," Jimmy Buffett
"We like margaritas," Fairchild says. "We make our own LBT-Rita. It's beer and tequila together, but it will kick you on your you-know-what, so maybe it's the memories of that song and the memories that you attach to it." 
"That's such a laid back thing," Westbrook adds. "Everybody has been trying to duplicate that song. The lyrics to that song, I love. It's so memorable. That's really the gold standard of summer songs."
"Soak Up The Sun," Sheryl Crow
"That is pure sunshine and pure summer," says Schlapman. "When I think of that song, colors come into my brain, yellow and orange and all those bright, bold colors. She was hot in that video, too." 
"Crazy in Love," Beyonce
"That's song is just so badass," Sweet says. "It has the groove that is just infectious."
"She was making her mark with that one," Fairchild echoes. "I remember those little daisy dukes she had on in the video. She's the Queen B." 
"Toes," Zac Brown
Schlapman's fondness for [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-mahina-cuir-65]LV Mahina cuir[/url] this song goes beyond the lyrics to a much more personal place, her now 7-year-old daughter, Daisy. One of Daisy's first sentences, Schlapman explains, was some of the chorus to "Toes."  "[Daisy] was barely two years old and just barely making sentences," Schlapman recalls, "and she was there in her crib and she said, 'Life is good today.'"  
"Three Little Birds," Bob Marley
"His spirit is so free, you can just feel it," Sweet says. "It's a laid back, groovy song. Of course, they were dealing with oppression and he was saying that everything is actually going to be all right. He's happy for a reason."
"That's the kind of anthem you can only dream about writing," Fairchild adds.
"Summer of '69," Bryan Adams
"That's just good old rock roll," Sweet says. "It's like comfort food."
"Pontoon," Little Big Town
"Is it bad that we name our own song?" Schalpman asks. Recalling a story about the lyrics of the song, Fairchild says, "Some mother came up to me and said, 'Thanks for teaching my kid what motorboating is.' I was like, that's your problem." 
"Chattahoochee," Alan Jackson
"We used to 'shoot the hooch' in Atlanta," Fairchild remembers. "It's basically inner tubing down the Chattahoochee River."
"Summertime," Will Smith
"That's a good jam right there," Fairchild declares.
"Sex on Fire," Kings of Leon
"I remember the first time I heard that song. It was a rock and roll summer for me," Sweet recalls. "We were on some sort of drive going on a road trip and I remember thinking, this sounds incredible. It was a huge summertime [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-toile-monogram-67]LV Toile Monogram[/url] hit."
"American Kids," Kenny Chesney
"I think that's going to be the big summer song at the tail end of this summer," Fairchild predicts.

Mayor Nutter F.O.P head John McCain Nearby and others announces new contract for police
Tom MacDonald WHYY (@TMacDonaldWHYY)

Philadelphia s police officers are getting a raise for the next three years 鈥?but they re also getting a rebuke for the unprecedented wave of corruption cases against officers in recent years.
Mayor Michael Nutter, Commissioner Charles Ramsey and FOP President Tom McNesby made the聽announcement at an 11 a.m. news conference.


And the city got a big concession in its聽contract聽with the union: It will now be able to transfer members out of the department's narcotics unit who have served in that unit for at least five years. Commissioner Ramsey had [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] previously sought that power, saying that "bad habits" had spurred some recent high-profile cases of corruption.

That split decision was handed down by an arbitration panel that, as in previous contracts between police and the city, helped resolve and finalize outstanding issues between the two parties. The contract lasts three years; officers will receive a 3 percent raise the first year (retroactive to July 1st of this year) and 3.25 percent raises in 2015 and 2016.
But the arbitration panel 鈥?which finalized its conclusions on Wednesday, 鈥?decried rampant corruption within the department as well.
"The Panel also shares the concerns of the Commissioner and the Mayor that some reforms are needed that will root out corruption and misconduct by a small number of officers within the Department that have tarnished the Department's reputation with an unprecedented wave of criminal arrests and convictions for on- and off-duty activities, including a significant [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] number relating to narcotics," the panel said in its findings. "There is simply no place for criminal conduct within this great Department and the conduct of these officers does a great disservice to the heroic men and women of the department."
The panel added, two paragraphs later, that it "recognizes and reaffirms that any such reforms must be structured in such a fashion as to avoid painting the entire Department with a broad brush of corruption [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] and to be applied in a nondiscriminatory, even-handed manner."
The new policy involving the narcotics unit doesn't give Commissioner Ramsey unlimited power to make transfers. Officers transferred out of the bureau against their will will be given a preference for reassignment 鈥?letting them choose what they consider the best open positions available elsewhere in the department. And those transfers will not exceed more than 20 percent of the Narcotics Bureau in any given year.
The full arbitration ruling is below:

Brian Jeffs, president of a pressure group called Michigan Open Carry, co-authored the book with Nathan Nephew, a founder of MOC.
On the MOC website, Jeffs sets out the benefits of displaying a large-calibre pistol while shopping and socialising.
It s true that open carry has many advantages: a faster draw, a larger calibre handgun and greater round capacity; [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-cosmic-blossom-63]LV Cosmic Blossom[/url] sure it s been shown to deter crime, and it is immensely more comfortable to carry in warm weather, but it is much more than that, he writes. Open carry brings gun ownership out of the closet. It shows your friends and neighbours, your state and your country that you are not afraid of taking on the responsibility of protecting yourself and the ones you love from evil.
The MOC website also carries a list of positive comments apparently from sources including James Towle, host of American Trigger Sports Network ("Outstanding, outstanding every person should buy five copies of this book... ) and Alan Korwin of gunlaws.com ( I love it...boy does this fill a vacuum!")
However, on Amazon, where the book is listed as a best-seller in the Government Books category, reviews appears mixed at best.
Tongue firmly in cheek, Greeny gives the book five stars.
My kids need to know why daddy has a .38 strapped to his hip on the school run, in [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-mahina-cuir-65]LV Mahina cuir[/url] the supermarket, and at McDonald s, so this book is a god-send, he says. They need to know the peace of mind that comes from knowing you can gun down any bears, terrorists or argumentative store clerks/waitresses you might encounter when going about your day-to- day business.
Reviewer Malc McGookin also remains unconvinced.
Your determination to interpret your 2nd Amendment as the right for every halfwit and their child to own and operate a firearm [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-toile-monogram-67]LV Toile Monogram[/url] virtually without restriction is being paid for by the blood of innocents, he writes. You carry your guns because you are scared and gutless.
And Kevin F has a grammatical point to make: By the way Open Carry isn't a verb. And I'll stand my ground and shoot in the face anyone who pretends it is.
About 85 Americans are shot dead daily, 53 of them suicides. According to data from the FBI, in Michigan in 2012 there were 682 homicides, 78.59 per cent of which involved firearms.

Most of the media, included the Associated Press propagandists have been pushing

staging photos ops to show dead civilians.The story s main fact
may be true, that a UN school was hit by Israeli bombs. However, they ignore
the fact that even UN sources have reported three times that Hamas rockets have
been found in their schools. Hamas deliberately puts its rockets and terrorists
in and around schools, hospitals, mosques and other civilian structures. This
provides a win-win situation for them inhibiting [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] attacks for fear of
collateral damage and when atacks are necessarily made, they can show
the collateral damage [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] to great propaganda advantage.Hamas
raises children to be suicide bombers, while Israelis protect children and
women.Hamas deliberately targets civilians with indiscriminate rocket
attacks, while Israel tries to minimize civilian casualties (both their own and
in Gaza).Place blame where it is due, on Hamas.

(August 4, 2014) Repair work on a $60 million high school football stadium in North Texas is scheduled to start this week.
Work is expected to begin Tuesday with fixes to the main scoreboard that include drilling new piers and installing new supports for it.
Allen school officials closed the stadium this year after structural cracks and other problems were found. The arena was built just two years ago and seats 18,000 people. Forensic engineers reported finding extensive design flaws, which Superintendent Lance Hindt has called "engineering failures."
Hindt says the architects that designed the stadium and a construction firm that built the arena are working to fix the problems. He says they're making the repairs at no cost to the district.
School district officials want to reopen the stadium by May 2015.

Bob Stovall: Following an abrupt stumble in late July we expect the market to move somewhat higher during the rest of 2014. The market has had a remarkable ascent that began 64 months ago 鈥?the fourth largest run since prior to the crash of 1929.  Year-to-date as of July 31st, the S P 500 is up 4.5%. Beneath this is an epic tug-of-war being played out on Wall Street between the bulls and the bears.  The struggle is being waged on a somewhat shaky playing field.  At a time when the economy is experiencing its weakest recovery out of a recession ever, this tepid recovery still continues to trudge ever higher. For example, business investment is rising. Residential construction is higher. Unemployment numbers are low.  The job rate is [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url] growing.  Industrial production is rising.  Monetary policy is still accommodative.  The Feds鈥?meetings aren鈥檛 scary anymore.  Government spending has shrunk meaningfully relative to GDP.  The yield curve is positively sloped.  Long-term interest rates are negative, and corporate profits, despite Wall Street fears and contrasting contradictory forecasts, are rising.
Bank lending to business is strong. At best, this is a reflection of increasing confidence.  At worst, it is a harbinger of modest inflation pressures.  The Fed has stated it would prefer inflation to be higher 鈥?2% is their number.  So you鈥檝e got a case here where the current recovery is the only one in history to occur alongside of zero growth in federal spending.  Federal revenues, in contrast, have been rising steadily 鈥?something that is fairly typical during recoveries.
Spending has not increased at all for the last five years, but revenue has climbed by almost one trillion dollars 鈥?with a T.  Spending as a percent of GDP is back down to just about 20% 鈥?close to the average of the last several decades.  Strong revenue growth is a good sign that the economy is nowhere near a recession.  A weak economy simply does not generate this kind of growth in tax revenues.
This is a very welcome development. So as usual, it鈥檚 easier to build a bear case for U.S. securities that will at some point disappoint investors and easier to be a bear than a bull.  But for the war-weary 鈥?and there are plenty of wars around 鈥?there seems to have been nothing but an endless stream of bad news on the U.S. political and international war fronts.  Iraq is imploding.  Russia menaces what is left of the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] Ukraine. The Palestinians and the Israelis have been duking it out with rockets and aerial bombardments.  The casualty pictures on television are disturbing and the southern border of the U.S. is starting to look like the entrance to Walmart on Thanksgiving night.
So what to expect? Performance will hinge on growth and earnings reacting accordingly.
Perhaps the best anybody can predict at this point is that by some valuation measurements, the market may look toppy.  But it can easily get toppier.  In other words, from this observational perspective, there鈥檚 no need to head into an investment bomb shelter.
Wally Forbes: So you鈥檙e a bully, not a bearboy?
Stovall: I am on the bull side, not the bear side, absolutely 鈥?despite the usual cautionary utterances that you鈥檙e required to make to yourself and to your audience.
So moving on, I have a few stocks for investors to consider. First, L Brands (NASDAQ: LB) 鈥?which was called Limited Brands.
It is a famous company that does fashion retailing. It is very popular with the ladies. Price is about $58, $59 a share, and it pays a dividend of $1.36.  The PE is 17 to 1, depending on whether you鈥檙e looking at last year or 2014.  It鈥檚 had a steady but not dramatically rising price pattern for some time.
Total sales are rising at a rate of about 4% to 5%, and the company is targeting a low single-digit growth in same-store sales. It鈥檚 doing its job of helping the lovely ladies in its marketplace look even lovelier.  So I like it.  It has a good record, pays a dividend and is not excessively pricey.
The next one I like is a large diversified investment manager called Invesco (NYSE: IVZ).  Invesco is highly ranked by the analysts who follow it.  It offers an array of investment options to individuals and institutions.  It has offices around the globe, nearly $800 billion of assets under management, and it has a yield on its indicated dividend of 2.6%.  Current dividend is $1 per share.  Invesco has a large institutional ownership of about 85%, 86%: so it鈥檚 well thought of by professional investors. Fans of IVZ anticipate its growth will outpace that of its peers due to the good relative fund performances of the assets  it manages.
The next one is one that my late wife, Inger, used to love to see come to the front door, and that鈥檚 United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS). UPS operates in a duopoly with FDX in delivering merchandise and,  importantly, pricing may be getting a little better for these companies.  There鈥檚 a possibility that a holiday small-package [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] surcharge is coming; tacking on fees for deliveries during the busy season.
So UPS provides us with leverage to e-commerce without being a retailer.  You might say Amazon needs UPS more than UPS needs Amazon.  So vis-a-vie FDX, UPS has a better profile in my opinion 鈥?more Europe exposure, less Asia exposure, less next-day air, more domestic ground deliveries.
They have a new labor contract in place. So labor relations look somewhat stable and UPS is now the cheap transport company.  The UPS network handles close to 6% of U.S. GDP on a given day.
Stock is now about $96-97. But it鈥檚 price target is about $110+.While UPS has a multiple higher than that of the S P 500, it鈥檚 shares are selling  lower than its historical premium.

Americans鈥?confidence in the U.S. economy fell last month to its [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] lowest point since March on souring views of the economy鈥檚 direction, according to .
To measure confidence Gallup averages Americans鈥?ratings of current economic conditions with their perceptions of whether the economy is getting better or worse. In July, 20 percent of Americans said economic conditions were excellent or good while 34 percent said they were poor, an unchanged amount since April. Fifty-seven percent of Americans said the economy is getting worse, the most since December.
July鈥檚 reading slipped largely because of an edgy week for financial markets the week of July 21, when stocks tumbled after pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine shot down Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 and increased the likelihood of tighter [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] Western sanctions against Russia. Other international events, like a debt crisis in Argentina, may have contributed to lower confidence.聽
Despite continued drops in the stock market, Americans鈥?confidence rebounded in the last few days of July and beginning of August, amidst positive reports of U.S. gross domestic product and job creation.
Middle- and lower-income Americans (earning less than $90,000 a year) led the decrease in confidence, while upper-income Americans鈥?(earning more than $90,000 a year) confidence remained the same from June.
This [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] year, economic confidence has remained generally stable, up from a dive in October during the federal government shut down.

Buzz building over Bethlehem distilleryFranklin Hills Vineyard plans distillery in old bank on South Side.A Slate Belt winery, Franklin Hill Vineyards, wants to build a distillery (FILE PHOTO, THE MORNING )August 05, 2014|By Nicole Radzievich, Of The Morning CallThe wine makers behind an award-winning Slate Belt vineyard are looking to open a craft distillery in south Bethlehem, among the first proposed for the Lehigh Valley.The owners of Franklin Hills Vineyard are seeking a limited-distillery license, which would allow them to make spirits on the South Side, offer tastings and sell the spirits directly to customers.The distillery would be housed in an old Prohibition-era bank across the street from the South Side campus of Northampton Community College and about two blocks from the SteelStacks entertainment complex.Called the Social Still, the distillery would include a bar where customers could enjoy spirits and plans to start out making gin and vodka, with whiskey, bourbon and rum to follow, said still manager Adam Flatt."We will honor the tradition of distilling, but at the same time be playful and [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] forward thinking," he said.Flatt, whose mother started Franklin Hills in the 1970s and would be the owner of the proposed distillery, said no lease has been signed yet with BethWorks Now developers, among the original investors in redevelopment of the old Bethlehem Steel plant. But Flatt said Franklin Hills was "aggressively" pursuing the South Side building.Rob DeBeer, a business director for BethWorks Now, said he hoped to have the building ready for occupancy by Dec. 1 and more information would be released in the coming weeks."This is an exciting project that fits well with this community," he said.Social Still's liquor license has the vineyard location on its application, but once the lease negotiations are final, Flatt said, he would change the location on the liquor application that was filed more than a year ago.The buzz around the potential project began building last week when the tenants of the building at 530 E. Third St., the administrative offices of the National Museum of Industrial History, moved to the museum's warehouse facility in Hanover Township, Lehigh County.The vineyard's owners have been looking for a site in Bethlehem, where Franklin Hills already has a presence. One of its three wine stores other than the vineyard in Lower Mount Bethel Township, near Bangor is in the city. The other stores are in Palmer Township and Tannersville.The distillery could be the first project to take advantage of the new City Economic Revitalization Zone, a state designation that allows certain state and local taxes to pay construction costs. The application hasn't been filed yet."This is an exciting project for Bethlehem, potentially the first CRIZ project," said Alicia Miller Karner, director of the city's Community and Economic Development Department and executive director of the Bethlehem Revitalization and Improvement Authority. "What we're seeing here with the distillery business is what the craft [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] brew industry was 10 years ago."The craft distilleries began to gain traction after December 2011, when Gov. Tom Corbett signed legislation making it cheaper and easier for them to start up. It lowered the license to $1,500 for distilleries making no more than 100,000 gallons a year. The law also allows for the distillery to have two satellite locations.The Liquor Control Board lists 23 active licenses for limited distilleries and nine pending ones, including Social Still.The distilleries so far have been concentrated around Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Social Still is the only license pending in Northampton County. In Lehigh County, a microdistillery called County Seat Spirits will be setting up in the Bridgeworks Enterprise Center in Allentown, joining two other alcohol-based startups, The Colony Meadery and HiJinx Brewery, at the business incubator.Until the 2011 law, startup companies like Social Still and County Seat Spirits were treated the same as Philadelphia's Jacquin's, which has been in business since the 19th century and remains one of Pennsylvania's two largest licensed distilleries. The other is American Beverage Corp. in Allegheny County.Americans' appetite for distilled spirits has exploded in recent years, jumping in net production from 9.8 billion gallons in 2011 to 11 billion gallons in 2012, according to [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Lockit[/url] the latest statistics posted by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.The amount of distilled spirits sold jumped from 205.6 million 9-liter cases in 2012 to 210 million last year. Pennsylvania accounted for 7.2 million cases last year, according to the Liquor Handbook 2014 published by the Beverage Information and Insights Group.Vodka was the most popular non-whiskey spirit nationally at 70,060 cases nationwide and 2.4 million cases in Pennsylvania, according to the handbook.Featured ArticlesMore:Related ArticlesMarch 13, 2014March 7, 2014January 29, 2005March 8, 2014October 6, 2004Find 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.

() 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.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (August 4, 2014) U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson ruled Monday that Alabama state lawmakers exceeded their authority when they passed a law last year that requires doctors at abortion clinics to have hospital admitting privileges and issued an order temporarily blocking enforcement of the law.
Thompson's decision came days after a federal appeals court blocked a similar law in Mississippi.
Planned Parenthood and others filed a lawsuit over the Alabama law last year.
Supporters of the law say it would make clinics safer, but clinic operators say the law would force the shutdown of all but two of Alabama's five clinics.
Thompson says the Alabama law would place an undue burden on women.
In a statement, Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange says he disagrees with the ruling and will appeal after Thompson issues a final order.

Dream assistant coach Karleen Thompson鈥檚 opening statement: "We wanted to come out with more energy that we did, we just get a rhythm. We went up, and we just couldn鈥檛 open it up for us. New York played a very good game, a very physical game. We just have to regroup and come back. We have a tough road trip coming up and we have to focus on that and get some wins."

Thompson on Dumerc鈥檚 third start in a row: Will she take over that role? "Cee Cee has done a good job for us in her starts. This team has all kinds of talent on it, and in different games maybe different people step up. She鈥檚 a solid point guard, and we鈥檙e not just going to quit on her because we didn鈥檛 get a win. It鈥檚 a team win just like it鈥檚 a team loss. We just have to get out there, get some practice in and get a win on the road."
Thompson on the Dream鈥檚 rebounding against the Liberty: "That鈥檚 what really stuck out to the whole team today. Rebounding is the key to our offense. We get out and run, we usually own the boards. Whenever teams crash offensively, it slows our run down and forces it into a half-court game. So we definitely need to pick it up on that aspect."
Thompson on Tina Charles鈥檚 performance: "She鈥檚 an All-Star. She was on tonight. She鈥檚 just a great player. Once a player like that gets started, it鈥檚 hard to stop the bleeding."
Thompson on the third-quarter Liberty run: "We just didn鈥檛 come together and play defense the way we should and we just kind of fell apart. Sometimes we do that after halftime. We just have to put forty minutes together on the court. Playoffs are coming, but we still have all these other games, so we just want to focus on that, take each game at a time, and try to put forty minutes together."
Thompson on Coach Michael Cooper鈥檚 activity level with the Dream 鈥?will he be traveling with them? "Yeah. He鈥檚 here. He鈥檚 doing well. He can鈥檛 yell as much as he probably wants to. You have to be very distinctive. He can tell me what to say, but when he wants to say something, sometimes it鈥檚 hard for him to get it out right there at that moment. But he鈥檚 here. He鈥檒l be here (for the four-game road trip)."
Thompson on possible complacency now that the Dream have clinched a playoff spot: "I think it鈥檚 just mental focus. Just continuing to practice hard and put together forty minutes of Dream basketball which starts with our defense and go from there. We are definitely not complacent. We鈥檙e not complacent with just making the playoffs, we鈥檙e not complacent with just winning a conference title. We have a goal that鈥檚 been a goal from day one. Coop has always said it, he says it every day, and even when he wasn鈥檛 here he was saying it every day. That鈥檚 what we鈥檙e focused it."
Thompson on Tiffany Hayes holding Cappie Pondexter to just one field goal attempt in the first half: "Tiffany has been just awesome for us defensively. I think she jump starts our defense. She has a tough role and she鈥檚 also been handling it on the offensive end. She鈥檚 definitely going to be the one that we put on key players to limit them offensively."
Sancho Lyttle on her performance: "It鈥檚 a job that the coach told me I have to do every game. Sometimes I accomplish more than enough and sometimes I don鈥檛 and today was one of those games. We just have to come out more aggressive and box people out because that鈥檚 what people are going to do to us."
Lyttle on the Dream鈥檚 slump 鈥?are they out of sync? "I say it鈥檚 the curse of the second half. In the six years that I鈥檝e been here, every time it鈥檚 the second half; we play this way until the playoffs. I don鈥檛 know why. I hope to live to see the day that we don鈥檛. I don鈥檛 know what it is. Maybe we鈥檝e lost focus a little bit, maybe we鈥檙e playing like we know too much or something. I鈥檓 not too sure."
Tina Charles on the importance of the win: "It was a must win as far as a playoff berth. Atlanta already has a playoff berth, we don鈥檛. So we just came in here with great intensity and energy. We were doing all the little things. We only had three turnovers in the second half, and that was the biggest thing I think. So it was just a great team win, everybody was knocking down shots and it was great."
Charles on her performance: "I was just being aggressive. Just knowing what my role is on this team and just really wanting to win."

Bali Nine convict Scott Rush will be questioned about photos that apparently show him using drugs behind bars.
News Corp Australia newspapers ran the photos on Monday, which purport to show the 28-year-old smoking crack cocaine in Kerobokan prison.
The report quotes an unnamed source who says despite Rush's claims to be clean, he regularly took meth, heroin and cocaine in the jail, which was "like a supermarket" for drugs.
Prison governor Farid Junaidi says he will study the photo and question Rush, who is serving life for the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-corners-towel-scarf-38]Louis Vuitton Corners Towel Scarf[/url] 2005 bid to bring 8kg of heroin from Bali to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/ceinture-louis-vuitton-17]Ceinture Louis Vuitton[/url] Australia.

He claimed to be leading a crackdown on contraband drugs, but admitted it was possible that some slipped through.
"Since the very beginning that I've been in charge here, I've started a war on drugs," he said.
"Prisons have been bombarded by drug smuggling and it's in big quantities, but we have managed to crack down on most of it.
"Certainly it's possible that some still get away with it."
The photos were allegedly taken in January, under the governor's watch.
Rush - whose death sentence was commuted to a life sentence in 2011 - moved to Karangasem jail, in Bali's east, in February.
He had been requesting the move for a long time, in order to be closer to a local "foster family" who were looking out for [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/anagramme-ceinture-19]Anagramme ceinture[/url] him.
Earlier this year, pictures of another Bali Nine inmate, Renae Lawrence, 37, were also investigated.
In the video footage, Lawrence claimed her former cell mate, Schapelle Corby, knowingly smuggled marijuana into Indonesia.
Bali officials determined the video couldn't be used as evidence against Corby, who is now out on parole.

Perhaps there is just not enough discrimination to occupy federal bureaucrats. How else to explain the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission s lawsuit filed last month against Wisconsin Plastics Inc. for firing employees who [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] were unable to speak English?The case came to light when 11 Hmong and Hispanic workers at the Green Bay, Wis., plastic and metal manufacturer complained to the EEOC following their dismissal in the fall of 2012. Such alleged conduct violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects employees from discrimination based on national origin, which includes the linguistic characteristics of a national origin group, the EEOC claimed in a press release.The EEOC is suing for the former employees lost wages and punitive damages that could reportedly be up [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] to $200,000 per employee, for a maximum of $2.2 million.The EEOC s charges are false and completely without merit, Wisconsin Plastics contended in a statement. The company noted that at the time the employees were laid off, 91 percent of its nearly 300 employees were racial and ethnic minorities.The EEOC s accusations are even more ironic and unlikely given the company s history of trying to eliminate language barriers with its employees. As reported by Plastics News, Wisconsin Plastics was honored by a trade group in 2003 for its management s attempts to learn the Southeast Asian Hmong language to improve communication with employees.The EEOC has gotten even more aggressive and creative in recent years. We ve seen some decisions that are a kind of radical that we haven t seen in the past, under Republican or Democratic administrations, Judicial Watch blog editor Irene Garcia [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] told CNS News. While one does wonder how employees with little to no English skills were hired in the first place, it hardly seems unreasonable to fire employees who are unable to communicate effectively with their supervisors. The EEOC s actions are just another example of the government s lack of respect for the freedom of contract and the troubling trend of bureaucratic overreach.

(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.
And add a stamp to their passport in the process.

Others are also believed to be in discussions to leave Financial Wisdom and Godfrey Pembroke and use their own licence or look for a small independent boutique.
It comes as the debate on vertical integration is set to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-speedy-73]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] heat up after the Commonwealth Bank financial planning scandal exposed flaws in the model and the Murray inquiry moves towards a final recommendation on whether banks should be allowed to own the financial planners who sell the products the banks manufacture.
Advertisement
Chairman of the inquiry David Murray has said he will not shy away from making tough decisions. This could include the formal separation of product from advice and forcing vertically integrated businesses to divest either their product or advice businesses to remove conflicts.
It also comes as the financial planning industry works towards setting up a national register for financial advisers, which is expected to be run by the corporate regulator, ASIC.
A meeting was held last week which included discussing what might be included on the register, such as the name of each adviser, their education qualifications, professional membership, details of any complaints or sanctions, the licensee, and who owns the licence. 
A register would stop shoddy advisers moving from one group to another because their history would be there for all to see, as would their education.
It is understood that the banks will lobby to exclude releasing information on who owns the licence on the register. A cynic could be forgiven for thinking it is because they don t want consumers to know they are behind the many brands. For instance CBA is behind Financial Wisdom, Colonial and Count. NAB is behind MLC, Garvan and Godfrey Pembroke and AMP is behind Charter, Hillross and AXA.
Over the past decade or so banks have moved into wealth management and financial planning to the point where the industry is now more than 80 per cent owned or tied to the big four banks and AMP.
A survey by Roy Morgan this week revealed an alarmingly high level of confusion among consumers about whether the financial planners are independent or linked to the banks, given the different brands they operate under.
For instance, more than 55 per cent of clients using Commonwealth Bank s Financial Wisdom dealers believed the dealer group was independent rather than tied to the bank s subsidiary.
This is despite all the publicity on financial planners due to the CBA scandal and the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-siracusa-75]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] debate over the wind-back of the future of financial advice reforms.
The CBA financial planning scandal and shoddy practices at Macquarie Private Wealth have put the spotlight on the sector and its many conflicts and shortcomings.
What has emerged is the current structure of vertical integration is inherently conflicted and customers don t realise that many of the financial planners are owned by the banks.
The conflicts of interest of the vertically integrated wealth management model has been described as allowing a pharmaceutical company to own doctors, who are partly remunerated by the pharmaceutical company and that company ascribes certain targets such as the number of pills and brand the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-wilshire-76]Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] doctors must sell. 
CBA whistleblower and former financial planner Jeff Morris said developments at Fortnum and Ethical Financial were the start of a trend against the fatally flawed , vertically integrated model, whereby product manufacturers seek to control financial advice businesses in order to use them as a sales channel. This trend may be set to continue as more and more advisers realise that vertical integration is the root of all evil in this industry and recognise that financial planning will never make the transition from an industry to a true profession until this fundamental conflict of interest is removed, he warned.
A separate study by Roy Morgan conducted in April showed a lack of trust in the sector, with only 28 per cent of people rating financial planners very high or high for ethics and honesty.
The spotlight has well and truly turned to advisers and the broken model of vertical integration. Whatever the banks argue about best interests, the model removes the independence that planners require to carry out that best-interest role in relation to clients because their activities are driven by the banks agenda.
As one adviser says: This has been a creeping outcome of government and regulatory negligence and inaction over many years so much so that the vast majority of planners are now owned by banks. How can this business model ever hope to ensure that the needs of the client are upheld? Something needs to be done to change this broken model. Indeed.

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.

But when all else fails, she boils it down to one sentence: 鈥淭his is just an awesome program.鈥?br>
 
Considering the numbers alone, it鈥檚 easy to take Morton at her word. The program hires 225 young people between the ages of 14 and 17 to work at 100 or more local businesses for six weeks each summer. This year, there were 268 young people on a waiting list.
 
The program, which is implemented by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government鈥檚 Division of Youth Services, was created to provide the youth with 鈥渞eal and meaningful鈥?work experience 鈥?something that is increasingly important in helping them discover such goals as going to college and finding full-time employment, she said.
 
Job shadowing, mentoring and career guidance are important features of the program, as are the work readiness and life skills workshops that go along it.
The youth 鈥?whose families must meet specific income guidelines 鈥?work 20 hours a week, in June and July. They are paid through LFUCG, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] so there鈥檚 no cost to the participating businesses. Child care centers, offices, nursing homes and horse farms are just a few of the work settings.
 
鈥淭he most beneficial thing I鈥檝e seen come out of this program is that the youth are motivated to earn their own money,鈥?Morton said. 鈥淚 love seeing the youths鈥?faces when they pick up their first check. It鈥檚 priceless.鈥?br>
 
Jhamiel Clay, a Lafayette High School sophomore, was assigned to BGADD as part of the Lexington Summer Youth Employment Program. (Photo by Tab Patterson)
Youth worker Takia Huggins-Smith agreed that making her own money is exciting but said there鈥檚 an added benefit.
 
鈥淭he program is good for helping you learn to budget, too, because whenever you get paid, you think you鈥檙e going to have more than you really do,鈥?said Huggins-Smith, a Henry Clay High School junior who works for the Bluegrass Area Development District, mostly in aging services. 鈥淚 already had [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] my first check spent before I got it. Next check, I鈥檒l budget my spending a little better.鈥?br>
 
Jhamiel Clay, a sophomore at Lafayette also assigned to BGADD, has realized still another benefit 鈥?one that can鈥檛 be measured in dollars and cents: navigating public transportation to get to and from work, as well as working with other people in a professional setting. The latter was the easy part, he said.
 
鈥淚t has really helped me a lot, meeting people,鈥?he said.
 
The young people aren鈥檛 the only ones who benefit from the Summer Youth Employment Program. Businesses, which have the opportunity to contribute to the 鈥渃ommunity and the future of the young people within it,鈥?also reap rewards.
 
鈥淚t鈥檚 a win-win situation for us,鈥?said Lydia Jacobs, program specialist for the Bluegrass Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living, who along with Jamie Peck oversees Huggins-Smith, Clay and one other youth worker, Celena Gray. 鈥淭hey are a huge help 鈥?a huge help.鈥?br>
 
Jacobs said BGADD鈥檚 youth workers primarily perform clerical duties 鈥?filing, making copies, faxing documents, etc. 鈥淚t鈥檚 really endless what they can do. Some of them have to be taught, and that鈥檚 fine with us,鈥?she added.
 
鈥淏usinesses get to see what we see on a regular basis when we work with youth,鈥?Morton said. 鈥淭hey are able to mentor a youth, and they love it. I love doing site visits at businesses because this is when you realize that the business supervisor is committed to the purpose of the program. They are very [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] proud of the work the youth has done.
 
Some of the participating businesses even find employees through the program.
 
鈥淒ogtown is one of my favorite sites because over the past seven years, they have hired every summer youth worker we have sent them, ages 16 and above,鈥?Morton said. 鈥淭anbark is another great location. Tanbark has hired summer youth workers from the past and given them training that will assist them in future jobs.鈥?br>
 
Morton doesn鈥檛 hesitate to encourage businesses to get involved. 鈥淭his is an opportunity for everyone to give back to the community and the future of the young people within it.鈥?br>

The number of children being raised by their grandparents shot up, doubling from 2000's 2.4 million to 4.9 million in 2010, according to figures.
Many times, situations arise in which a child can no longer safely live with a biological parent or legal guardian, Mary Jane Di Paolo, assistant director of Community Child Care Solutions, told . She said that New Jersey's Department of Child and Families tries to place children first with relatives and acquaintances whom the child knows, which may be one reason more children are living with grandparents.
"Grandparents provide similar family values that the parent was raised with. This could [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] be a comfort to both the parent and child," she said.
According to the , "Often, grandparents take on this obligation when the grandchildren's own [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] parents abandon them or when the children can no longer live with them because of the parent's mental disorder, substance abuse, or incarceration."
The federal government has created a for grandparents who are raising their grandkids. It includes potential for some financial support, tips and health and safety resources.

State and local agencies are also trying to help. For instance, in Oklahoma, police agencies, aging services, a local recycler and others have teamed up to involve the entire community in filling backpacks with grade-appropriate supplies to help grandparents outfit children for the upcoming school year, according to .
The University of Wisconsin cooperative extension offers a series of for grandparents who are doing an encore parenting stint. Topics range from child development to disruption in [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] relationships and how to form close bonds.
The looks at everything from legal issues to finance, work, education and childcare, support and more. It also has a list of documents that will make it easier for grandparents raising their grandchildren, including birth certificates, death certificates if the child's parents are dead, divorce decrees, Social Security cards, medical records, guardianship papers and power of attorney, consent forms signed by parents if applicable, school papers, documentation of income and assets if applying for any financial assistance including reduced or free school lunches, citizenship papers and more.

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?

business going. (Kodak, as you know, has been by selling or shuttering various business units.) One of Kodak鈥檚 popular motion picture formats is the Super 8, which offers the vintage [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/bagages-louis-vuitton-48]Bagages Louis Vuitton[/url] 鈥渉ome movie鈥?feel that many directors desire for authenticity (versus using digital post-editing means).

There have been many attempts to bring back Super 8 filmmaking, but they were either conversions of old analog equipment into digital () or a purely digital camera that shoots like a Super 8 (Chinon Bellami HD-1). The Danish Logmar, however, is an aluminum-bodied digital camera that pairs the modern convenience and capabilities of digital filmmaking with actual recording onto Super 8 film, for that real vintage feel. In fact, it s the first true new Super 8 camera to be made in 30 years. It鈥檚 powered by the ARM Cortex M3 processor, and it has image stabilization; C-mount for interchangeable lenses; an LCD; Wi-Fi remote control via Android, iOS, and [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-louis-vuitton-50]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] Windows Phone; and digital sound recording (onto an SD card) with inputs for headphones and microphones.

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?

I told my sister on the phone, we got one shot to get them together, Sloan told the ABC network.
We kept them together, and had their beds side-by-side.
It was clearly the right decision.
[url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-speedy-73]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] Gram woke up and saw him, and held hands and they knew that they were next to each other, said Sloan.
Not long after that, Maxine Simpson took her last breath.
I could hear on the monitor, she took her last breath and I came to check. She had passed, Sloan said.
The couple's granddaughter said that that once Maxine's body was removed, her grandfather died.
I walked them out with her body, walked back in to check on grandpa and he quit breathing as soon as her body left the room. He left with her, and they passed four hours apart from each other.
Sloan told the network it was meant to happen that way.
I knew in my heart this is what s supposed to happen. Grandma and grandpa are [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-siracusa-75]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] supposed to be together and grandma and grandpa are going to die together, she said.
It s just amazing. It really is amazing," Sloan told the station. "It s a true love story.
Don and Maxine met at a bowling alley and married a few years later, settling in Bakersfield, California.
They shared a passion for travel, seeing the world together from early in their relationship.
She says her grandfather was a jokester, but they were both humble people who made lifelong friends wherever they went.
People that knew them had so much respect for them, says Sloan.
They shared their love of travelling and the outdoors with their grandchildren too.
My grandparents shared their passion for travel with me and took me places in their motor home, says Sloan.
Gramps taught me [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-wilshire-76]Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] to ride horses, ski, and play tennis. Grandma had love for swimming and she swam competitively in her childhood. She taught all her grandchildren to swim from an early age.
Their passion for their family and each other never waned, says their granddaughter.
The one thing that I can say for sure about them is the amazing love that they shared for one another, says Sloan of her grandparent s relationship.
Nothing mattered more to Don in life than his beautiful wife and nothing concerned Maxine more than the well being of her husband, both genuinely concerned for one another.
She says her grandparents had a special bond that people these days don t have anymore.
They had what this generation is missing, the compassion, understanding and unconditional love that a spouse should have for the other no matter what, til the end of time, says Sloan.

Ian Hermanns has spent the summer painting a [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] SharkWall on the Newport Aquarium wall facing the Ohio River. (Photo by Timothy Sofranko/NKU)
 
By Tom Ramstetter
Special to KyForward
 
Ian Hermanns has been living Shark Week nearly every day this summer. The 20-year-old Northern Kentucky University junior studio arts major from Anderson township outside Cincinnati, has been among several apprentices from ArtWorks painting a 35-foot-long sand tiger shark on the fa莽ade of Newport Aquarium.
 
The massive painting facing the Ohio River will be the cornerstone of an aquatic-marine-life-themed mural celebrating the aquarium鈥檚 15-year anniversary. It is part of the ArtWorks鈥檚 2014 Public Art campaign. Incoming freshman Jenna Webster has also been working on the project.
 
The experience for Hermanns has been as massive as the shark, he says.
 
鈥淭he Newport Aquarium and ArtWorks have made the project an excellent experience so far,鈥?Hermanns said. 鈥淚t is interesting to learn how to go about painting a mural of this large size because, until now, I have only worked on a much smaller scale, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Artsy[/url] with clay sculptures and my printmaking. I have never been involved in a project like this before now.鈥?br>
 
The SharkWall is ArtWorks鈥檚 largest project ever and the painting is not the only large aspect of the project.
 
鈥淗aving professional scaffolding, paints and, of course, experienced artists provided has made the process go by much faster than I would have imagined,鈥?Hermanns said. 鈥淎nd the Newport Aquarium has given exclusive viewings of animals that will be depicted on the wall so that we understand how they act and look up close, which has made the whole experience fun and all the more personal.鈥?br>
 
Incoming NKU freshman Jenna Webster has also been helping create the 35-foot shark mural. (Photo by Timothy Sofranko/NKU)
While the mural is intended to catch the eye of potential visitors to the aquarium and spark interest in marine aquatic life and conservation, the experience for the artists is important, according to Newport Aquarium Vice President/Executive Director Eric Rose.
 
鈥淧artnering with ArtWorks for this project provides a great opportunity for local youths in the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky communities to showcase their artistic talents while developing their professional and life skills,鈥?Rose said.
 
Hermanns has also developed a new appreciation for public art.
 
鈥淲orking on this project has proved to me the importance of public art,鈥?he said. 鈥淪eeing people stop to look with interest, and being able to answer their questions is awesome. Ric Urban Paula, the penguin鈥檚 trainer at the aquarium talked to us about how he wanted to illustrate technically accurate animals for books before he got a job working with animals at a zoo. This got me thinking about how art can be incorporated in anything, and good imagery has the power to sell an idea or a product.鈥?br>

Allow me to repeat what I just wrote, for full effect: Half of all NFL games last season were within three points at some point in the fourth quarter. And Garrett is right in pointing out that playoff teams do better in those games: Playoff teams had a .671 winning percentage (57-27-1) in these "three-point" games, non-playoff teams had a .407 winning percentage (68-98-1). Those percentages are in line with what we [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] saw above, which just reinforces the point that good teams find ways to win and bad teams find ways to lose, regardless the circumstance.
I once heard someone say that you could significantly simplify the NBA by having teams start with the score tied at 100 - 100 and then let the teams decide the winner in the next five minutes. At the time, I thought that was pretty funny, but I find it a lot less funny when applied to the NFL: Play just one quarter and give one team a three-point advantage - half the games last year were exactly that.
Back to the Cowboys: Garrett is emphasizing fourth quarter performance for a very good reason. You may find this hard to believe given how we're constantly being told that the Cowboys were seemingly overmatched in many games over the last three years, but in 29 of the 48 games the Cowboys [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] played over the last three seasons, the difference in points between the Cowboys and their opponents at one point during the fourth quarter was three points [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] or less. That's sixty percent, or almost two thirds, of all games that were there for the taking for the Cowboys. And one of the reasons the Cowboys finished all three seasons the way they did is because their record in those 29 "three-point" games was a disappointing 13-16.
Last year, the Cowboys played in seven games decided by three points or less (in which they recorded a dismal 2-5 record), but they played 10 games in which the difference in points between the Cowboys and their opponents was three points or less at one point during the fourth quarter. The Cowboys' record in those close games: 4-6. Here's a summary of those ten games.

The benchmark S P/ASX 200 Index and the broader All Ordinaries Index each lost 0.4 per cent, on Tuesday to 5518.6 points and 5511.5 points respectively, despite a rebound in United States equity markets on Monday night.
Fidelity Worldwide Investment asset allocation director Trevor Greetham said the past week s sell-off in global equities has created a good opportunity to buy on the dip amid excessively bearish sentiment.

The sell-off could continue if the geopolitical situation worsens but we find that buying during times of panic usually pays off, especially when the fundamental outlook is positive as it is now with monetary policies set to remain loose and global growth picking up, Mr Greetham said.

Companies that are in the housing sector, benefiting from disruptive technologies, and those that are showing sensible capital management are likely to perform well this reporting season, Mr Carlberg said.
Toll road operator Transurban Group dipped 0.9 per cent to $7.58 as it delivered a 13 per cent rise in annual earnings and told shareholders it is well positioned for the current fiscal year.
Cochlear was the best-performing stock in the ASX 200, climbing 10.3 per cent to a 12-month high of $69, despite reporting a 29 cent fall in full-year net profit, in line [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/inventeur-damier-ebene-ceinture-reversible-27]Inventeur Damier Ebene Ceinture r锟斤拷versible[/url] with guidance.

Australian Bureau of Statistics data for June showed the seasonally adjusted trade deficit narrowed by 18 per cent. Lower imports and higher rural exports and volumes helped offset lower iron ore and mineral prices.
Resources giant BHP Billiton fell for the sixth session in a row, down 0.8 per cent at $38.01, while main rival Rio Tinto shed 0.2 per cent to $65.33. The spot price for iron ore, delivered in China, was 0.2 per cent firmer at $US95.40 a tonne, with the futures market pointing to a lift on Tuesday night.
Junior gold producer Medusa Mining was the worst-performing stock in the ASX 200, dropping 14.9 per cent to $1.32, as it was revealed Van Eck Associates ceased being a substantial shareholder following the release of the June quarter report last week.

The Ground megahub planned to be built on Willowbrook Road in Allen Township will defeat the purposes for which the Wayne A. Grube Memorial Park was established.

Allow me to repeat what I just wrote, for full effect: Half of all NFL games last season were within three points at some point in the fourth quarter. And Garrett is right in pointing out that playoff teams do better in those games: Playoff teams had a .671 winning percentage (57-27-1) in these "three-point" games, non-playoff teams had a .407 winning percentage (68-98-1). Those percentages are in line with what we [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] saw above, which just reinforces the point that good teams find ways to win and bad teams find ways to lose, regardless the circumstance.
I once heard someone say that you could significantly simplify the NBA by having teams start with the score tied at 100 - 100 and then let the teams decide the winner in the next five minutes. At the time, I thought that was pretty funny, but I find it a lot less funny when applied to the NFL: Play just one quarter and give one team a three-point advantage - half the games last year were exactly that.
Back to the Cowboys: Garrett is emphasizing fourth quarter performance for a very good reason. You may find this hard to believe given how we're constantly being told that the Cowboys were seemingly overmatched in many games over the last three years, but in 29 of the 48 games the Cowboys [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] played over the last three seasons, the difference in points between the Cowboys and their opponents at one point during the fourth quarter was three points [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] or less. That's sixty percent, or almost two thirds, of all games that were there for the taking for the Cowboys. And one of the reasons the Cowboys finished all three seasons the way they did is because their record in those 29 "three-point" games was a disappointing 13-16.
Last year, the Cowboys played in seven games decided by three points or less (in which they recorded a dismal 2-5 record), but they played 10 games in which the difference in points between the Cowboys and their opponents was three points or less at one point during the fourth quarter. The Cowboys' record in those close games: 4-6. Here's a summary of those ten games.

Amid crude insults apparently aimed at the police, Mr Palazzotto also swapped messages with an aspiring mobster who asked to be enrolled in his clan. Do I need to send a CV? asked the applicant. Yes, brother, replied Mr Palazzotto jokingly. We need to consider your criminal record. We do not take on people with clean records. However, while the online postings, which were revealed by Italian magazine L'Espresso, are thought to be partly intended to spread fear among the Mafia's host communities, such flagrant disregard for the criminal organisation's traditional penchant for discretion could also be the mobsters' undoing.An investigative source in Palermo told The Sunday Telegraph, London, that officers were spending time checking through Facebook to seek out the bosses lurking behind false names.Salvatore D'Alessandro, a rising mob henchman loyal to Mr Palazzotto, also posted on Facebook [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sandals-46]Sandals[/url] under a pseudonym and described his ambition to move up the organisation's ranks. For the time being I am one of the small sharks hunting in the deep, he wrote. But the moment will come when I rise to the surface and will have no pity for anyone. The investigative source, who declined to be named, said the mob was pushing to make a comeback in Palermo , following years when the ranks of Mafiosi were decimated by arrests. But the new generation, the source added, could not be more different from its predecessors. Going online would have been unthinkable for the old guard, the source said. They lived in farmhouses and existed on bread and cheese, without using phones, relying on pizzini (handwritten notes) to get their orders out. The new generation are using Facebook, texts and WhatsApp to show that they are going to the best discos, beaches and restaurants, because they believe that is [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sneakers-34]Sneakers Louis Vuitton[/url] key to earning respect. The problem is that makes you traceable and they are getting arrested. Mr Palazzotto was among 95 suspected mobsters rounded up in June in Palermo in an operation dubbed Operation Apocalypse , aimed at decapitating the city's new Mafia leadership. Police said they had put a temporary stop to vote rigging, extortion and drug-trafficking operations. More importantly, officers said they had halted a bid to pull together scrapping clans across the city into a more compact criminal empire, harking back to the leadership of Toto Riina, the boss of bosses , jailed in 1993.Investigators alleged a key figure in the rebirth was Mr Palazzotto's cousin Gregorio Palazzotto, 37, who was issuing orders despite being in jail.A keen user of Facebook, Gregorio used the site to insult Mafia turncoats who gave evidence to get out of jail, writing: I have no fear of handcuffs, but I am [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/loafers-57]Loafers Louis Vuitton[/url] afraid of those who start singing to get out of them. As police get wind of Facebook bragging by Mafiosi, a more time-honoured means for the mobsters to show off their power, involving Cosa Nostra's venerable links to the Catholic Church, resurfaced in Palermo last week.During one of the religious processions that frequently wind their way through the city, volunteers carrying a statue of a Madonna briefly set it down outside a funeral parlour owned by the family of Alessandro D'Ambrogio, a jailed Mafia boss, in what was viewed as a sign of respect.During the pause outside the shopfront, where D'Ambrogio held mob summits, local children were lifted up to kiss the statue.The incident recalled a similarly suspicious pause in a procession in Calabria last month near the home of jailed boss Peppe Mazzagatti, which prompted outrage in the wake of Pope Francis' call for mobsters to be excommunicated.Pietro Leta, the Carmelite prior who was responsible for the Palermo procession, denied his statue bearers were taking orders from mobsters, claiming the statue had stopped dozens of times, either to give the volunteers a rest, or to avoid the electrical cables strung across Palermo's narrow streets.Telegraph, UK

We re about music, we re about having fun, we re about supporting the runners every single mile along the route, so we have bands or some form of music every mile, and then a big headliner concert at the finish at Civic Center Park, said race spokesman and former Olympian Alan Culpepper.
All the bands on the course are local bands, but the headliner band at the end that was chosen is a touring band.

Their father Anthony Maslin said he referred to his children in the present tense because he knew with absolute certainty they were still with them today.
He said the children had seen more of the world [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] in their short lives than most people did in a lifetime.
Someone said they were so close, they were meant to be together, he said.
(They were) unblemished, innocent, perfect souls. They are our whole world.
And having Nick, the wisest man I know, as their eternal guide gives us some comfort, too.
Foreign Affairs Minister Julie Bishop flew to Perth from Ukraine to attend the service at Scotch College - the school Mo attended and where his grandfather was a former student.
There were smiles and laughter as [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/ceinture-en-cuir-18]Ceinture en cuir[/url] stories about each of the children were shared, and musical tributes accompanied photo montages of the trio.
Mr Maslin described Evie as the heart of the family.
We know Evie is making everything okay for Mo, Otis and Nick, he said.
We hope she can somehow make everything okay for us too.
I would choose the short time we have had with them over any normal long-lasting life.
Nick Norris' son Brack read a tribute to him on behalf of the family.
He taught us about life by being a mentor, a confidante, a trusted friend and a sounding board, he said.
He always approached things differently, challenging conventions and achieving some amazing things because of it.
Brack Norris said his father, a former school principal, had worked in Indigenous communities and was a true family man at heart.
My dad was a great man, he said.

Woman tied to Bethlehem gunfight admits plot to murder witnessesAugust 05, 2014|By Peter Hall, Of The Morning CallMental stress and pressure from a government informant led Sonia Panell to plot the killing of three key witnesses against her husband, Rene Figueroa, in a 2012 shootout outside a Puerto Rican social club in Bethlehem that left one dead, Panell's attorney said.Although her psychological condition and coaxing by a supposed hit man may support a reduced penalty for Panell when she is sentenced, defense attorney Hope LeFeber said they don't amount to a defense in the murder-for-hire scheme Panell admitted to on Tuesday.Panell, 38, of Lansford, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Edward G. Smith in Allentown to three felony counts of using telephones to negotiate the murders.Prosecutors say she spoke with an unnamed man about her desire to have the witnesses killed, and [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton Soldes[/url] took the man on a tour of places where they could be found. As they drove, she and the man, who was wearing a recording device, discussed details of the plot, including how much he would be paid and what equipment he would need.The charges carry a maximum prison sentence of 25 years, although prosecutors have agreed to ask for a reduced sentence as consideration for Panell's cooperation in her own prosecution. Smith scheduled Panell's sentencing for Nov. 4.LeFeber said Monday that Panell's defense during sentencing will be psychiatric in nature. Panell has been under treatment since 1997 when her two young children and her sister perished in a fire, LeFeber said.The June 27, 1997, blaze in the 400 block of North Law Street in Allentown that killed 1-year-old Ariel Marquez and [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/23-sac-porte-epaule]Sac port锟斤拷 锟斤拷paule[/url] 3-year-old Isaac Marquez and their aunt, 20-year-old Yamitza Panell was caused by an unattended pan on a stove, authorities said.However, the nature of Panell's psychological problems depression, stress and bipolar disorder, Panell said would not allow her to put on a defense at trial that mental illness was to blame for her crimes, LeFeber told the judge.LeFeber also told Smith that she plans to argue that the unnamed man whom Panell spoke with about murdering the witnesses was a family member who exerted an influence over Panell. While the pressure does not amount to entrapment, it should be taken into consideration in sentencing, LeFeber said.Figueroa, 34, was also charged last month in Northampton County Court with conspiracy to commit homicide and solicitation to commit homicide against the three witnesses.He and co-defendant Javier Rivera-Alvarado, both of Allentown, face a score of felonies from the gunfight in December 2012 outside the Puerto Rican Beneficial Society on Bethlehem's South Side. Figueroa could receive the death penalty if convicted of murdering 23-year-old Yolanda Morales of Bethlehem.Court records say in February 2013, Figueroa offered fellow Northampton County Prison inmate James Martin $50,000 and said he would pay Martin's bail if he killed the witnesses.Authorities say Figueroa and Panell spoke by telephone in code to avoid alerting authorities, who record inmates' telephone conversations. Panell contacted [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/24-sac-porte-main]Sac port锟斤拷 main[/url] the hit man, offering to provide him a gun and an untraceable phone and obtained night vision goggles from her mother and stepfather's home, court papers say.Northampton County First Assistant District Attorney Terence Houck has said officials knew all along that Figueroa and Panell were plotting against the witnesses, but the FBI, county detectives and Bethlehem police had to do a complete investigation before charges were filed.610-820-6581Featured ArticlesMore:Related ArticlesFebruary 17, 2014March 25, 2014December 10, 2012November 22, 2013June 16, 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.

WESTMINSTER, Colo. (CBS4) - The security guard who shot and killed a Westminster man this weekend may have been聽justified, police said Monday, because the victim pointed a pellet gun that looked like a real gun at the guard.
This airsoft gun, in particular, had the orange cap removed. But even then, in the heat of the moment in darkness, it s hard to tell. They really look like real guns, Westminster police spokeswoman Cheri Spottke said.
Family members said David Ludewig, 24, was celebrating news his wife was pregnant with their first child. He was drunk, they said, when the guard confronted him for allegedly urinating on a trash bin outside his apartment at 8300 North Sheridan Boulevard at approximately 1:30 a.m. on Saturday.
(credit: CBS)
After the confrontation, police said, Ludewig returned to his home to fetch the weapon. Then, according to police, witnesses said the guard retreated after Ludewig pointed the weapon at him. The guard then fired.
Spottke said the guard, whose name hasn t been released, works for Pentagon Protective Service and is licensed to carry a gun in the city.
I don t think he probably would have chosen to fire his weapon had he not thought there was a direct threat to his life, she said.
An example of an airsoft gun (credit: Westminster Police Department)
Ludewig s cousin, Johnny Secrest, witnessed the confrontation and said that many residents complained about the guard. But he said his cousin made a mistake.
Nobody please pull a pellet gun out, he said. It is the wrong thing to do.
Monday s statement from police is the first indication they believe the guard may not have been聽at fault. Earlier, Spottke said in a statement: 鈥淭he Westminster police would like to remind everyone it is difficult to differentiate between an airsoft gun and a real gun. This is an ongoing investigation and the case will be presented to the district attorney鈥檚 office later in the week.鈥?
Ludewig鈥檚 family has planned 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.

Bruce Chapman, the architect of the HECS repayment scheme, backed calls for a comprehensive debt recovery scheme, estimating it could save the budget $80 million a year.
University graduates do not currently have to repay their loans while living overseas.

''There are big licks of cash that can be found - we don't believe it is as hard as has been made out. The United Kingdom does it and New Zealand does it,'' Universities Australia chief executive Belinda Robinson said.
It was ''unfair'' to charge students higher fees and increased interest on their debts while not asking overseas graduates to repay their debts. ''It's a free ride,'' she said. ''Recovering [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON[/url] debts from overseas would make other changes more palatable.''
The Grattan Institute estimated that charging overseas debtors would bring in $177 million in extra revenue over two years.
Education Minister Christopher Pyne said he was negotiating a reciprocal arrangement to allow Australia to recover debts from citizens working in Britain. ''One of the purposes of the dialogue is to reach an agreement to shut the [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON solders[/url] loophole that allows Australian graduates living in the UK to avoid repaying their HECS debt to the Australian taxpayer,'' he said.
About 23 per cent of graduates working overseas live in Britain, according to Graduate Careers Australia.
Professor Chapman, director of policy impact at the Australian National University's Crawford School, said bilateral debt recovery arrangements were ''too much trouble and too political''. It would be more effective to require all graduates who move abroad for more than six months to repay $2000 a year - the minimum repayment amount.
''You put the onus on the student so that if they don't repay they are breaking the law,'' he said.
Professor Chapman said education ministers had squibbed the issue since HECS was [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON pas cher[/url] introduced. Given debts could double under a deregulated system, it was more important than ever to recover them, he said.
Earlier this year, Mr Pyne floated the idea of recovering debts from deceased estates, but the idea was ruled out by Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

A specially outfitted plane carrying Dr. Kent Brantly from West Africa arrived at a military base in Georgia. Brantly was taken to the Atlanta hospital. Another American with Ebola is expected to join him at the hospital in a few days. (AP Photo/David Goldman)Related PostsThe first of two individuals who have contracted the deadly Ebola virus arrived in the US on Saturday. A .
People are concerned for their safety, and I completely understand how you feel.
In July 2012, I was two and half weeks into my three month research trip to Tanzania when outbreaks of .
The regions that bordered Uganda were on alert. Fortunately, I was stationed in the east but my reaction was what you would expect: Get me out of here!
I contacted my supervisor and inquired about my evacuation plan.
It is a frightening prospect to have a disease with a 80-90聽percent聽mortality rate [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] so close to home.聽 People are , people here will get sick and the disease will spread.
There are two things, however, that are important for everyone to understand.
First, .聽Scientists have been studying the disease in well-secured laboratories for years, and there has been no trouble.
In other words, there have been no new cases or incidences of Ebola from these previous exposures to Ebola and related viral hemorrhagic fever diseases.
Second, Ebola is actually very hard to contract. Thanks to the Outbreak, I imagined that the hemorrhagic virus would leap frog across the landscape and I would find myself in the middle of medical quarantine zone in a few days鈥?time.
However, my local colleagues explained that contracting Ebola involves coming into direct contact with an infected person鈥檚 body fluids, namely blood and feces. Caretakers such as relatives and medical staff are at high risk of becoming infected. Otherwise, the chances of anyone else in the community contracting Ebola is practically zero. Transmission can be avoided by wearing protective clothing and gloves, washing your hands, and avoiding physical contact with individuals who are sick.
Before becoming alarmed, consider how likely you are to actually get sick from Ebola compared to other diseases which are more and also dangerous.
For example, as a field ecologist, I routinely handle wild animals that are known carriers of scary diseases such as Hanta virus, monkey pox, Lassa fever, and yes Ebola, too. However, I am more worried [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] about getting Dengue fever, malaria or Lyme disease, which are carried by biting insects that are hard to control and track.
Ebola is indeed scary, but my chances of contracting it or monkey pox or Lassa fever are actually very low. Despite the messages from the news coverage, the prevalence of Ebola is low. It isn鈥檛 as widespread as other diseases such as malaria, which is more common and widespread. Let鈥檚 compare the numbers. Ebola has killed . Malaria claimed .

Despite my cavalier behavior 鈥斅營 don鈥檛 always wear gloves when [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Lockit[/url] handling wild rodents, I am still here and healthy.
So far so good, yet this recent outbreak is a reminder for me to take care and protect myself more seriously. 聽When it comes to Ebola concerns, my advice is to hold tight. Don t freak out! Cool heads prevail in any situation, including this one.

Pro tip: If someone wants your land, you don't tell them how much you'd love to sell it.
Barrett's preference for a location closer to the Wisconsin Center/Wisconsin Avenue could certainly be interpreted as a means of keeping open the possibility of a compromise solution with the Wisconsin Center District as well.

Tourist taxes--which target out-of-towners with things like hotel and rental car taxes--are usually one of the first targets for new arena fundraising since it's not the locals bearing the cost. But unfortunately the WCD also has $225 million in long-term debt and has previously聽.
On the topic of arena financing, there was some good news for arena proponents last week: Milwaukee County residents will be voting on plenty of things in November, but a non-binding arena tax referendum likely won't be one of them. Supervisor John Weishan was among [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] those attempting to put a referendum on the ballot to oppose new taxes for a potential Bradley Center replacement, but Chris Ryan of the MBJ reports that a minority vote to send the proposal to the County Board is likely too late to get on the November ballot. The proposal would have to be heard by August 26 for that to happen, but a) the board is off for the entire month of August and b) County Executive Chris Abele was unlikely to sign it if even if it did gain approval through a special session of the board.
And in case you're wondering how to feel about this, the short answer is it's a good thing if you support public funding of an arena. While an arena financing plan will eventually need to gain broader public support, arena proponents understandably want to delay a referendum until there's an actual proposal on the table--you know, that thing which is at least a few months away from beginning to take shape. Asking voters [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] whether they want to fund a project without any specifics--location, size, cost, etc.--is decidedly not the best route to winning anyone over, which is why Edens, Lasry and local business leaders have made figuring all that out a major priority. One step at a time...
How much money did the Bucks' recently-announced minority investors contribute to the team? Rich Kirchen and the MBJ did some snooping and found what appears to be the answer in recent regulatory filings:
They filed information with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on conducting a private stock sale July 17, which was one day after the Bucks announced the minority-investor news.
A spokesman for Lasry and Edens had no comment other than to say Wednesday that "Fear The Deer LLC is the holding entity for the capital raised outside of the principal investors."
The Bucks' $550 million valuation technically broke down to $425 million for the team and $125 million to retire its debts under the NBA's revolving credit facility, so Kirchen notes that the $84.5 million works out to around 20% of the equity valuation paid by Lasry and Edens. However, whether the new investors actually have 20% of the team also depends on the valuation they subsequently agreed to with Lasry and Edens. Maybe it's the same, maybe it's more, maybe it's less. Either way, it's a good chunk of change that suggests the locals have real skin in the game and aren't just token investors brought on for their Wisconsin ties.

Dr Allwood suggested in 2006 the patterns of life in the Pilbara could also have happened on Mars.鈥淚f life flourished so quickly on Earth, there鈥檚 a good chance life could also have gained a toehold on Mars, even if it were habitable only briefly,鈥?she wrote in 2006.

Rock formations in the Pilbara photographed [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Brea[/url] by Dr Allwood.
New technology designed by Dr Allwood allows Mars rock to be investigated down to microscopic, grain-size portions of rock.That will give the new Mars Rover a better chance to prove life existed on Mars.Dr Allwood began her geology studies at Queensland University of Technology, where she completed her Geosciences degree (with honours) in 2001.

She completed her honours year in 2002, before shifting to Sydney鈥檚 Macquarie University for her 2006 doctorate, which attracted the science world鈥檚 attention with ground-breaking research in the PIlbara.Before this she went to primary school in Brisbane, then Brisbane鈥檚 Sommerville House private girls鈥?school.Her 2006 research proved the geology of rocky reef that formed within the Pilbara 3.5 billion years ago held records of the Earth's oldest forms of life.It was this research that led her to be named minds by Cosmos magazine in 2006.In a media statement issued by the Australian Centre for Astrobiology in 2006, Abigail Allwood again made the link between her Pilbara research results and possible life on Mars.鈥淥ne of the broader implications of this work is in helping us search for traces of life on Mars and other planets,鈥?she said.That research was front page feature research in Nature, the acclaimed international science journal.Her sister, Belinda Allwood from Cairns, confirmed these details about her sister, whom she described as 鈥渆xtraordinarily brilliant鈥? but 鈥渦nassuming and very modest鈥?鈥淪he is now the first female principal investigator on a Mars Mission,鈥?Belinda said.鈥淎nd I think the first Australian citizen.

I remember being over there visiting her in 2011 or 2012 and visiting her at JPL,鈥?sister Belinda Allwood said.Belinda Allwood said she went to the Pilbara with her sister while she was researching rock samples before travelling to the States to work for NASA, seven years ago.鈥淚t was absolutely fascinating. She was looking at rock on the level of a 鈥榞rain鈥?鈥?[url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] 鈥榓 grain of rock鈥?to look for traces of organic material,鈥?she said.鈥淪o for her, the instruments that have been going up to Mars, they blast quite a large piece of rock to smithereens.鈥淎nd just give a chemical analysis of that sample- which may be a centimetre across.鈥淲hat the machine that she has developed will now do is analyse rock on a really fine scale 鈥?the level of a grain, just a few microns.鈥濃€淭hat is what PIXL will do. It can be aimed at 鈥榞rains鈥?in rock, to see what the composition is like.鈥漇even years ago Dr Allwood's Pilbara research was groundbreaking, Belinda Allwood said.鈥淲hen I was out there in the Pilbara visiting her, the rock was layered, but you could actually see the grains.鈥淎nd she would point out to me, a black grain next to grey one.鈥淎nd she would say: 鈥楾he black one might be organic in origin. It might be carbon-based鈥?鈥滺er research ultimately suggested this was the case.鈥淗er research put an end to decades of debate whether the Pilbara fossils were of organic origin, Belinda Allwood said.鈥淭hey became accepted as the oldest fossilised evidence for life on earth, 3.43 billion years old.鈥滿ost recently - in 2013 Abigail Allwood received NASA鈥檚 Lew Allen Award for Excellence 鈥?awarded to recognise 鈥渟ignificant individual accomplishments鈥?in scientific research by NASA鈥檚 Jet Propulsion Laboratory.Now, NASA鈥檚 current rover, the Curiosity Rover 鈥?which has been on Mars for more almost two years - is beginning to look at bedrock of called Mount Sharp, located in Gale Crater.The Rover team is calling the outcrop Pahrump Hills.

a whopping $6 million in unpaid wages and damages to its current and former employees, the US Department of Labor said yesterday.
The government agency carried out an investigation during which it discovered that the company violated overtime and record-keeping rules that are part of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. These rules require hourly employees to earn 1.5 their rates for overtime.
This was a function of not having the right tools in place for a small subset of our sales force to track hours properly , said Shannon Stubo, vice president of corporate communications, adding that most of the affected employees were in sales.
According to the Labor Department, LinkedIn neither recorded, nor did it pay for all hours in a workweek, including overtime, to 359 employees working at company branches in California, Illinois, Nebraska and New York.
The settlement amount includes more than $3.3 million in retroactive overtime wages and more than $2.5 million in damages. In addition, the settlement will also see the company train employees that off-the-clock work is prohibited for all non-exempt workers.
The company cooperated with investigators and agreed to pay the amount once it was notified of the violations. A Labor Department representative said that the company has mailed the payments to all those who are covered under the aforementioned settlement.
Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Mountain View, California, LinkedIn is used by individuals for professional networking, connecting, and job searching. The company has 313 million members.

Sio was not a starting option for the Wallabies but was being turned from loosehead to tighthead, with the aim of bolstering Australia's limited stocks in the technically demanding position.
His loss and the absence of both Polota-Nau and Stephen Moore, who boast 141 Test caps between them, put extra pressure on the Australian pack, who are preparing for one of the most anticipated Bledisloe Cup showdowns of recent years.

McKenzie was characteristically pragmatic about the situation. 
We've got a number of very good players who are unavailable at the moment. That's just life, you get on with it, he said. 
There's no crisis, that's just the way it is. I'm pretty excited to see how some of the guys step up.
With Sio's experiment at tighthead in mind, the Wallabies called in Rebels prop Laurie Weeks, opting once more to forego bringing in 67-Test veteran, and loosehead, Benn Robinson.
He's definitely on the radar, we're concentrating on the tighthead prop side of things, McKenzie said.
There's a bunch of [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/bagages-louis-vuitton-48]Bagages Louis Vuitton[/url] options at loosehead. We still watch, and have been watching, and obviously I think Benn Robinson has been playing pretty well of late. So he's certainly not out of the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-louis-vuitton-50]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] picture, not at all.
Robinson, who was in rampaging form for the title-winning Waratahs this season, said he was disappointed to have missed out again.
McKenzie did not name the NSW prop in his first Rugby Championship squad a year ago, but brought him in later at the expense of Sio  after the Wallabies scrum struggled against New Zealand and South Africa.
I ve played with the Wallabies for a long time. To miss out is always disappointing, Robinson said at the Waratahs' fan day in Martin Place on Tuesday. 
McKenzie also chose not to use the country's most experienced loosehead against France last month, opting instead for impressive Reds prop and Wallabies vice-captain James Slipper. 
We had a conversation around that time, the Wallabies coach said of Robinson. I've been watching him every week. I think he's been playing better since that time, so he's not out of the picture at all.
Waratahs hooker Tolu Latu is joining the Test side in Bathurst on Wednesday afternoon after being called up to replace his mentor, Polota-Nau. 
Force rake Nathan Charles remains the most likely option to start against the All Blacks, with Queenslander James Hanson second in line.
Meanwhile, no one in the Wallabies camp is claiming the advantage after hearing All Blacks five-eighth Dan Carter will miss the first two Bledisloe Cup Tests.
Incumbent halfback Nic White said the New Zealand production line of quality players ensured the All Blacks would not be sweating.
With Aaron Cruden and Beauden Barrett coming into the side, whatever you lose, they make up for it, White said.
It's just New Zealand, it doesn't seem to matter. Any time they lose a guy another guy comes in, just as good, to take their opportunity. Beauden Barrett's been pretty unreal off the bench for them and Aaron Cruden has certainly filled Dan Carter's boots the last few [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/court-portefeuilles-74]Court Portefeuilles[/url] times. So they don't lose too much.
McKenzie said it would make coach Steve Hansen's selection choices easier, if anything. 
[They have] an embarrassment of riches there, he said. Someone was going to miss out so that probably makes it a bit clearer in how they pick it.
From our point of view, we re concentrating on ourselves and we ll play whoever they put out there.

"> ">Aug 04, 2014 | 05:32 pmDavid Wilson acknowledges NFL career is overRick LaughlandManaging EditorNew York Giants running back David Wilson informed the team [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] that he will be retiring from football after consulting with doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery on Monday.Things have gone from bad to worse for running back after doctors advised the injured 23-year-old to stop playing football in light of recurring neck injuries that they fear could result in a debilitating condition down the road. New York鈥檚 former first round pick in the 2012 NFL draft underwent spinal fusion surgery this offseason only to re-aggravate the condition during practice last week. After a battery of tests and evaluations, doctors determined that continuing to play football wouldn't be in the best interest of his long-term health.
鈥淒r. Frank Cammisa Jr., our spine specialist at HSS examined David this morning and following that exam, we both sat down and shared our perspective with David,鈥?said Dr. Warren. 鈥淒avid has diffuse cervical stenosis. He had a disc removed and a fusion in January. In light of last week鈥檚 episode of symptoms, sensory and motor, Frank and I both told David he should not play football any more. We let David know that by playing, he would be putting himself at risk for more episodes like last week or perhaps something more serious. 鈥?
An unfortunate end to a once promising career, the former standout is refusing to throw a pity party; instead, he鈥檚 thankful for his opportunity to fulfill a lifelong goal.
鈥淚 don鈥檛 want anybody to feel sorry for me, or pity me,鈥?said Wilson. 鈥淚 lived my dream. A lot of people only get to dream their dream. I lived that dream. Now I have a chance to dream another dream and live that, too.鈥?
After Wilson鈥檚 appointment at HSS, he returned to the Giants Quest Diagnostics Training Center offices early this afternoon and to meet with general manager Jerry Reese, head coach Tom Coughlin and team president John Mara to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] talk about his future plans beyond football.
鈥淒avid and I had a great talk,鈥?said Reese. 鈥淗e鈥檚 disappointed like all of us, but he鈥檚 a strong young man and understands that he has a lot of life left to live and it鈥檚 not worth to him, his family or us to put his health in harm鈥檚 way by continuing to play football.鈥?
鈥淚鈥檓 thankful that I can literally walk away from the game and that I am healthy and capable of doing the same things I have done all my life, except play football,鈥?said Wilson. 鈥淚 always try to find the positive in everything. This morning when I saw Dr. Cammisa and Dr. Warren, I didn鈥檛 hear what I wanted to hear, but I expected that what they told me could be a possibility. I had played out both scenarios in my mind. I prayed this morning before I went to see them that they would tell me what God would tell me. He put His answer in them to relay to me.鈥?
鈥淭he whole idea for David is that he fulfilled his dream,鈥?said Coughlin. 鈥淓ven though his career was cut short, he remains positive and believes God has a plan. He has accepted this in such a way that is a great example for all of us. There is no self-pity. David is a strong person and extremely optimistic. He will meet his next challenge in life with the same enthusiasm he approached football.鈥?

Perhaps there is just not enough discrimination to occupy federal bureaucrats. How else to explain the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission s lawsuit filed last month against Wisconsin Plastics Inc. for firing employees who [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] were unable to speak English?The case came to light when 11 Hmong and Hispanic workers at the Green Bay, Wis., plastic and metal manufacturer complained to the EEOC following their dismissal in the fall of 2012. Such alleged conduct violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which protects employees from discrimination based on national origin, which includes the linguistic characteristics of a national origin group, the EEOC claimed in a press release.The EEOC is suing for the former employees lost wages and punitive damages that could reportedly be up [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] to $200,000 per employee, for a maximum of $2.2 million.The EEOC s charges are false and completely without merit, Wisconsin Plastics contended in a statement. The company noted that at the time the employees were laid off, 91 percent of its nearly 300 employees were racial and ethnic minorities.The EEOC s accusations are even more ironic and unlikely given the company s history of trying to eliminate language barriers with its employees. As reported by Plastics News, Wisconsin Plastics was honored by a trade group in 2003 for its management s attempts to learn the Southeast Asian Hmong language to improve communication with employees.The EEOC has gotten even more aggressive and creative in recent years. We ve seen some decisions that are a kind of radical that we haven t seen in the past, under Republican or Democratic administrations, Judicial Watch blog editor Irene Garcia [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] told CNS News. While one does wonder how employees with little to no English skills were hired in the first place, it hardly seems unreasonable to fire employees who are unable to communicate effectively with their supervisors. The EEOC s actions are just another example of the government s lack of respect for the freedom of contract and the troubling trend of bureaucratic overreach.

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.

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.

The Gorham Town Council will decide Tuesday whether to ask voters again if they want to upgrade their police and fire department headquarters.
The latest plan calls for a $5 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] million renovation and expansion of the Public Safety Building on Main Street, which would include the construction of a new building for the police department, leaving the existing building for the sole use of the fire department.
Town Manager David Cole said the council will decide Tuesday whether to hold a townwide vote on the project on Nov. 4 and set a public hearing for Sept. 2.
Last year, voters resoundingly rejected a $6.3 million plan to renovate the former Little Falls school into the new public safety headquarters. The police and fire departments currently share the same building on Main Street that was constructed in the 1970s. The town first identified there was a space crunch there in 1999. Town officials say there s a need for more sleeping areas and showers for firefighters, interview rooms for the police department, and offices, conference rooms and storage space for both agencies.
We have made do for a number of years knowing that we would one day benefit from the citizens of [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] Gorham realizing that we need a suitable facility in which to conduct business, said Police Chief Ronald Shepard, who said it s a coincidence that he s planning to retire on Nov. 4 鈥?Election Day.
In the new plan, two bays for fire department apparatuses would be added to the existing building and the layout would be altered for a more efficient design, according to Andrew Hyland of Port City Architecture.
The fire station would also house a new training area for [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] both departments, which could also be used as an emergency operations center for the town.
A new 10,000-square-foot police station would be built between the existing building and Main Street.
Hyland said that if voters approve the funding in November, the project could be completed by the late spring of 2016.

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.

A new season of football in the English Premier League also means new uniforms. All the teams have already caught on to the trick: Not just bring out one new kit for the next [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] season but two, which means we have 40 new versions of the same thing we see every season.
The Premier League, more than any other soccer league in Europe or on the planet, is about squeezing every piece of economic paper and coin from the pockets and wallets of its fans. So what if the changes are minuscule compared to the jersey from last season? Someone needs to pay for the race car a man barely out of his teenage years is going to purchase.
Maybe we re being a bit cynical, but it s [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] hard to avoid the truth. The Premier League is becoming an expensive experience, drifting away from fans and affordability. There is no attempt from the teams and the league itself to take a few steps in the direction of fans. Maybe one day this whole bubble will burst, although the engine that runs this league isn t just based on local revenues.
This GIF, regardless of what it represents, is quite cool. It might hurt your eyes a bit, but just like the Premier League, we aren t about [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] substance, but about the flash and the exterior appearance.

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.

Tyran Pumpa, 19, was among a group walking towards Mooseheads nightclub on London Circuit when he encountered the victim and several friends in the early hours of March 8 last year. 
The two groups got into [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sacoche LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] a verbal argument after one of Pumpa's friends commented on a tattoo sported by a man who was with the victim, police alleged in court documents.
Advertisement
The altercation turned violent when one of the men Pumpa was with shoved the victim.
Friends tried to pull the men apart as they scuffled, but the two men followed the victim to a nearby carpark before Pumpa approached him from behind and threw a single punch to the left side of his face.
The blow caused the victim to black out and fall backwards, hitting his head on the ground. Blood immediately began to flow from his mouth, ear and the back of his head, police allege. 
The group then fled the scene. 
The victim suffered bleeding on the brain, skull fractures and a ruptured left eardrum and spent three days in a hospital neurosurgery unit.
Police used CCTV footage and an identification parade to identify Pumpa. 
He was committed to the higher court for sentencing after he pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm in the ACT Magistrates Court in November.
The charge carries a maximum penalty of 13 years in jail. 
Prosecutor Keegan Lee argued during a sentencing hearing in the ACT Supreme Court on Monday that the harm Pumpa caused the victim was significant [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] and there was a need for specific deterrance. 
Mr Lee noted Pumpa's early guilty plea and acknowledged that showed a level of acceptance and remorse. 
However, he questioned the voracity of Pumpa's remorse and argued it was not significant enough to prompt a change in his behaviour.
Mr Lee said the offender should spend at least a portion of any jail sentence imposed [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sacoche LOUIS VUITTON Homme pas cher[/url] in full-time custody. 
The court heard the injuries caused the victim an increased risk of dementia, ongoing pain due to the skull fractures, hearing difficulties and possible psychological conditions.
Defence counsel Richard Davies said there was no firm indication of ongoing disability for the victim.
The court ought to deal with what is known and not what might or might not happen in the future, he said. 
Mr Davies said his client had made attempts to avoid Civic at night and to cut down on his alcohol and cannabis consumption.
He said some people were better equipped to express remorse than others. 
Pumpa had underlying psychiatric problems and had experienced suicidal thoughts, which could be addressed under a deferred prison sentence, Mr Davies argued.
Justice Hilary Penfold will hand down her sentence on August 22.

First there was the fiscal cliff ; now congressional dysfunction has brought the country to the edge of the highway cliff. Federal money needed for the nation s roads and rails will begin disappearing Friday if lawmakers refuse to act. At first glance, you might blame the standoff on the Senate. The House passed a plan this month that would provide enough cash to push the problem off until next May or so, at which point lawmakers might have sorted out a long-term funding plan for the perpetually strapped Highway Trust Fund. All the Senate had to do was agree to the measure and move on. Instead, senators approved a [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy Round[/url] proposal from Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., and Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., that would provide funding only through December. The Senate also insisted on paying for its shorter patch with a different combination of revenue sources. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, responded that the House wouldn t accept the Senate s version. Stalemate, once again, at the edge of a policy cliff.Neither plan represents a long-term fix to the nation s transportation funding program. Both rely on accounting maneuvers to top up the Highway Trust Fund for a relatively short period of time. Lawmakers need to drum up the willingness to expand the sensible funding mechanism their predecessors established decades ago: the gasoline tax. Gas tax revenue is devoted to transportation projects, which makes sense. Those who use the roads should pay for them. But Congress hasn t increased the gas tax in two decades. The simple, efficient solution for the Highway Trust Fund is to raise the gas tax and index it to inflation, which would shore up the fund for a long time. If Congress doesn t pass it now, it should do so immediately after the November elections, when lawmakers will have less reason to pander to constituents.That s the reason to support the Senate s shorter-term patch, which would force a transportation debate in this Congress lame-duck session. House leaders instead want to pass their original bill anew and force the Senate to accept it. If House Republicans want to quibble over how the patch is funded, fine. But they shouldn t insist on kicking the can any farther down the road than the end of the year.

It鈥檚 happened again. A Belgian company is taking over a Missouri brewery.

KEENESBURG, Colo. (CBS4) An adult male and a juvenile male died during a standoff in the Weld County town [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] of Keenesburg.
The standoff started at a home on the 400 block of Kaiser Avenue at approximately 8:30 p.m. on Monday. Weld County deputies told CBS4 their fugitive unit had been looking for a kidnapping suspect, Shawn Kilker, who may have abducted his estranged wife last month.
(credit: CBS)
Deputies learned Monday that Kilker may have been home. When officers located the suspect s home, they surrounded it and the suspect and a juvenile refused to leave. Officers coaxed a female and two males, who were inside, away from the scene safely.
Negotiators spoke with the pair for several hours, but at 1:30 a.m., when they stopped responding, deputies discovered two bodies in the home s living room.
It s unclear how they died.
(credit: CBS)
The juvenile, who was believed to be 14, reportedly told deputies they were not [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] being held against their will. It s not clear what the relationship the boy had with the adult.
In any community this isn t something you want to deal with, sheriff s office spokesman Steve Reams聽said. We re trying to get to the bottom of all the twists and turns that took place prior to our knowing about it.
On Sunday, sheriff s deputies entered the home but didn鈥檛 find the suspect and instead seized some items. They said Kilker s estranged wife called on July 30 to say he had kidnapped her. She escaped unharmed.
Crime tape surrounded the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] home on Tuesday at daybreak and officials wearing protective gear could be seen entering and leaving the home.
The boy s identity hasn t been released.

"Higher-income households pay half their income in tax," Mr Hockey told Channel Nine this week while defending his budget.
He said it twice: "Higher-income households pay half their income in tax".
[url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/initiales-suede-ceinture-en-cuir-22]Initiales Suede ceinture en cuir[/url] It's a simple enough mistake. Australians on the top tax rate do indeed pay 45 cents in the dollar. The rate cuts in at $180,000. They also pay the temporary deficit reduction levy (another 2 per cent), the Medicare levy (yet another 2 per cent) and the Medicare surcharge where applicable (a further 1.5 per cent). The total comes to 50.5 cents in the dollar.
Advertisement
But the amount of tax actually collected from those Australians is nothing like that much, as a quick workout of the Australian Tax Office calculator makes clear.
An Australian earning $200,000 pays around 36 cents in the dollar including the Medicare levy and the deficit surcharge, far short of the claimed 50. Even an exceptionally high earner on $500,000 pays no more than 44 cents in the dollar.
Typical high earners pay much less. An Australian on $80,000 pays $19,147. An Australian on $120,000 pays $34,747.
The difference between the quoted rates and the actual rates comes about because all Australians - even the highest earners - enjoy a tax free threshold. They pay no income tax on their first $18,200 of income no matter how much they earn. And they pay just 19 cents in the dollar for the part between $18,200 and $37,000 [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/inventeur-damier-ebene-ceinture-reversible-27]Inventeur Damier Ebene Ceinture r锟斤拷versible[/url] and 32.5 cents for the slice between $37,000 and $80,000.
Only the part of their income in excess of $80,000 gets taxed at their marginal rate (for really high earners $180,000). Most high earners don't take home that many dollars above the threshold.
Bemused number crunchers on Twitter have been trying to calculate how much someone would need to earn to actually pay half of it in personal tax. One came up with $6 million, another with $3 million. Whatever the figure, it's beyond the reach of most high earners.
The treasurer was making a broader point, that it is "wrong" to say low-income households are the biggest losers from the budget.
"That story is wrong because it fails to take into account a range of things, like the fact that higher-income households pay half their income in tax, low-income households pay virtually no tax," he said.
But those two things aren't in conflict. It would be quite possible for low-income households to be the biggest losers from the budget and for them to pay less tax than high earners. Calculations of winners and losers - the sort carried out by the Treasury and included in every budget since 2005 until this one - [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lingot-ceinture-23]Lingot ceinture[/url] are a measure of who is made better or worse off than they were, not of how well or badly off they are in absolute terms.
Mr Hockey says high-income Australians pay tax in order to support low-income Australians. This is indeed a feature of the tax system. But it is not relevant to a calculation of the change in circumstances that will result from the budget. Separate calculations released under the Freedom of Information Act show the Treasury believes the change will be negative for lower-income households, less negative for higher-income ones.
The Treasurer's deeper point is that if you wind back benefits you'll necessarily take some away from people who would have got them. He is right. With the outrageous exceptions of the superannuation tax concessions and the negative gearing tax arrangements, high earners don't get anything like as much government support as low earners. That's the way the system is designed.
Cutting into welfare has to mean cutting into benefits. Unless you cut into high-income welfare, which the budget didn't do.

Washington (CNN) 鈥?Will an apology be enough to soothe the strained relations between the CIA and members of the Senate Intelligence Committee? It鈥檚 a critical lingering question in the rare public spat between the intelligence agency and the lawmakers charged with the agency鈥檚 oversight.
Tempers on the committee flared in recent [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] months over reports that the CIA spied on computers used by intelligence committee staffers. A CIA inspector general鈥檚 report confirmed these reports this past week, prompting CIA Director John Brennan to to committee members Thursday. However, some members aren鈥檛 satisfied, citing Brennan鈥檚 that batted down the spying accusations
鈥淚 don't think an apology is enough,鈥?Independent Sen. Angus King of Maine told CNN鈥檚 Candy Crowley on 鈥淪tate of the Union.鈥?鈥淚 think we've really got to have some serious discussions about John Brennan, find out what he knew about this when he was making those statements, what he knew about it at the time. I'm not calling for his resignation, but I'm pretty skeptical right now.鈥?
In contrast, the White House reconfirmed support of Brennan.
鈥淛ohn Brennan is a man of great integrity and ability. He's someone the President knows very well, and the President has confidence in,鈥?White House Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer told ABC鈥檚 鈥淭his Week.鈥?
Pfeiffer pointed to Brennan鈥檚 actions since the reports of spying came to light.
鈥淲hen there were allegations of improper conduct, [Brennan is] the one who referred it to the inspector general. The inspector general came back with its report this week; he's setting up an accountability review board to ensure that the right steps are taken to provide accountability.鈥?
Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, called for a fuller look at [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] the facts as the two sides begin to rebuild trust.
鈥淭his is very serious, but I don't think this is some conspiracy notion that they wanted to spy on either of our committees. Than would, of course, be intolerable. I think it would be a crime,鈥?Rogers told Crowley. 鈥淚t is a very serious breach of trust, but I don't think this should be taken and extrapolated that every CIA officer out there is operating under this culture of lawlessness.鈥?
King, however, pressed the broader point that transparency from the CIA is critical to the committee鈥檚 work.
鈥淚f we can't trust the information they're giving us, how do you do oversight?鈥?King asked. 鈥淲e may have to embed people in the agency or create an office of oversight in the agency because it's just essential. The American people are relying on us to watch what's going on.鈥?
The computers were used by staffers investigating the controversial post-9/11 CIA interrogation and detention program. The investigation resulted in a 6,800-page report. A 700-page summary of that report could soon be declassified and released .
Senators on the committee have indicated the report is critical of the CIA's treatment of terrorism suspects, saying it amounted to torture, something CIA officials have denied. It also finds that harsh interrogation techniques did not help disrupt future attacks as many in the intelligence community have claimed.
The report that was approved a year and a half ago by the committee, which was sharply divided along party lines. King said he voted to declassify it not as a means to smear the agency, but as a lesson for future [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] leaders faced with challenging events.
鈥淚 think it's an object lesson to future presidents, future intelligence agencies, future Congresses about how things can get off the rails, how things can go awry,鈥?King said.
Pfeiffer said the President, who has called for the report to be declassified, wants to acknowledge it and continue to move forward.
鈥淲hat we want to do now is we want to make sure it never happens again.鈥?
CNN鈥檚 Evan Perez contributed to this report.

Although Eric Bledsoe and his agents thinks he deserves a massive contract extension, he ll soon realize that what the Phoenix Suns have been offering is as good as it s going to get for him, at least in this NBA off-season.
The Suns have made an offer worth $48 million over four years to the restricted free agent. Bledsoe, despite his reputation and demands, hasn t done much in the NBA as of yet. He was a backup through his first three seasons in the league and last year was his first as a starting player. [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] He averaged 17.7 points per game, quite impressive, but managed to stay healthy for just half the seasons.
The only team that can give Bledose an offer sheet with more money are the Philadelphia 76ers. Now, the Sixers might be a team that players will want to play for again in a year or two, but that s not happening right now, and the Sixers aren t very likely to commit any kind of money to anyone but their own building projects at the moment.
So what are the options for Bledose? Taking the offer from the Suns and end what is almost turning into a feud between the sides, even though both of them are saying it s just business , or take a one-year qualifying offer which means making a lot less money than he would have been if he d accepted the long-term deal, but it ll give him a window to unrestricted free agency in 12 months, which might not be such a bad idea.
The Suns surprised everyone with their impressive season in 2013-2014, narrowly missing the playoffs. They didn t get the opportunity to make a big free [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] agency signing no one would sit down with them, but they remain a young and promising team that will be taken more seriously this season. Keeping Bledose is a big part of those plans, and eventually, he ll realize that there s nothing better for him out there, or at least that is what the team s owner,
We think it s a fair offer. I think you could argue, you know, I mean some would say it s maybe a little high; some would say it s low.聽What s fair is important to us, and also important to him him and his agent. It s not necessarily us to determine what he thinks is fair; it s him to determine that.聽聽think Eric s a great guy. And he ll be happy here when he gets here, whether that s for one year or for four years or five years.聽I think his agent s trying to [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Lockit[/url] do the best job he can, too. And I have a pretty good relationship with his agent. It s just part of the process. I wish it would have been resolved earlier, but it is what it is.

Alec Stevenson joined the priesthood after watching droplets of rain create ripples as they fell into water.
But Stevenson, 70, failed to think about the painful ripple effect his actions would cause when he illegally married two women over four decades.
Stevenson was handed a suspended jail sentence in the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday for two counts of bigamy.
The 70-year-old wed his first wife in his native New Zealand in 1962.
Advertisement
He walked out on her and his three children and came to Australia in 1970 to start a new life. The pair never divorced.
Stevenson remarried in 1974 and, after that marriage ended in divorce, wed his third bride in 2002.
But he never told the women [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-speedy-73]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] he had been married before, or that he had any children.
Stevenson pleaded not guilty to the two charges of bigamy but was found guilty in the Magistrates Court in June.
During the trial, the court heard Stevenson had become a priest with the Liberal Catholic Church upon moving to Australia.
The church does not enforce celibacy. He trained as a formal celebrant, which included learning the legal workings of marriage, and presided over three wedding ceremonies.
Stevenson, who represented himself, argued his offences were an honest or reasonable mistake, a defence against the Commonwealth crime of bigamy.
But Magistrate Beth Campbell, in finding Stevenson guilty in June, said it beggared belief the offender had failed to recognise that the same documentation needed to legalise a marriage would not be required to end one.
On Tuesday, Commonwealth prosecutor Katrina Musgrove said Stevenson s crimes had not been spur of the moment offences, extending over decades.
Ms [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-siracusa-75]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] Musgrove said the offender had shown no contrition, had little insight into the affect it had on the victims, and attempted to minimise his behaviour.
Stevenson apologised to his wives and said he accepted responsibility for his selfish and defensive behaviour .
I didn t take the ripples into account, he said.
Ms Campbell sentenced Stevenson to six months jail, to be fully suspended upon entering an 18-month good behaviour order with a $500 surety.
Ms Campbell said she had taken into account the nature of marriage in constructing the sentence.
But said the sentence did not include judgment on Stevenson s moral decision.
[url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-wilshire-76]Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] When two people marry they not only make a private commitment, but a public commitment which carries a significant number of publicly protected legal rights and obligations.
There is a public aspect and consequence to marriage.
Ms Campbell said legal complexities included property rights, government benefits, and immigration.

SONORA, Calif. Residents living downstream from a popular summer lake in Tuolumne County were warned to watch for flash floods on Sunday after the dam that [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] holds back the lake's millions of gallons of water sprung leaks, federal and local authorities said.The operator of Twain Harte Dam reported hearing loud booms and seeing water flowing through breaks in Twain Harte Dam, the National Weather Service said in issuing a flash flood warning for creek-side neighborhoods located southwest of the town of Twain Harte. The dam sits on Twain Harte Lake, a privately owned, man-made lake built in the late 1920s that is 20-to-25 feet deep.The Tuolumne County Office of Emergency Services said in a statement that state and local water officials have assessed the dam and "do not believe there is an eminent threat of failure." The dam was opened on Sunday and water drained from the lake at a rate of 2,000 gallons per minute on Sunday afternoon to [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] reduce pressure on the structure, county officials said in the statement.The process is expected to continue for two days, or until the lake's volume has been reduced below the point where the dam is leaking. The lake was closed until further notice.Twain Harte Lake Association Board President, Betty Jesperson, whose organization [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] owns and operates the dam, told the Union Democrat in Sonora (http://bit.ly/1tKKwjJ) that the California Department of Water Resources' Division of Dam Safety recently completed a routine inspection.Engineers and geologists from the division were back at the site on Sunday.

Six Philadelphia Police officers .
Well, it finally happened: Philadelphia鈥檚 war on drugs finally caught
The bad news: They all happened to be


It鈥檚 actually a great thing, the timing of the indictment of a half-dozen Philly narcotics officers (above) on corruption charges. It comes while Mayor Nutter still has on his plate a decision on whether to approve or veto

The corruption allegations should give the mayor 鈥?and the rest of us 鈥斅爌ause, a moment to ask this very simple question: Is the war on [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] drugs inherently corrupting to the city鈥檚 law enforcement? And if that is the case, what should change about the way we prosecute that war?
Consider the evidence: The drip-drip-drip of corruption stories from the Philadelphia Police Department in recent years has largely puddled聽around the Narcotics Bureau.
It鈥檚 easy to guess聽why: That鈥檚 where the money is. When Narcotics Bureau officers bust down the doors of a real drug dealer, they鈥檙e liable to finds tens of thousands of dollars in currency 鈥?money that鈥檚 easy enough to make 鈥渄isappear鈥?from official case reports, And if you鈥檙e not a drug dealer 鈥?just some poor sap who doesn鈥檛 like banks and keeps your money stuck under your mattress 鈥?well, your money can聽disappear just as easily as the bad guys'.
Of course, this is only a step removed from the way law enforcement agencies legally use 鈥渇orfeiture鈥?to nab money from suspected drug dealers 鈥?and, it seems, lots of innocent folks 鈥?. When cops take money from innocent people on behalf of the city, that鈥檚 legal. When they do it on their own behalf, that鈥檚 illegal. Maybe the line is clear, but the distinction is probably thinner than anyone in charge would like to admit.
The problems go beyond filthy lucre.
In their zeal to make busts, the says聽that the allegedly dirty cops in the Narcotics Bureau frequently cut corners 鈥?barely investigating allegations of drug dealing before busting down [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] doors. detailing the history of the indicted officers suggests the 鈥渋nvestigators鈥?cut-and-pasted almost precisely the same descriptions of drug suspects, over and over, into their applications for search warrants. Nobody 鈥?not the officers鈥?supervisors, not the judges signing the warrants 鈥?seems to have noticed this until defense attorneys started comparing notes.
And that鈥檚 when they were even searching for drugs. Remember that got hit by narcotics investigators a few years back? 鈥斅爄tems that could potentially be used by drug dealers, but not necessarily. Nobody liked that the unit was destroying surveillance cameras in the bodegas, but nobody seemed to care that a high-profile squad was spending its time on possible drug paraphernalia either. It鈥檚 as though the police department decided to spend taxpayer dollars looking for E-Z Widers.
Bottom line: Even when the unit is acting legitimately, its actions are often 鈥?gross.
Ramsey鈥檚 response to all of this is telling: He wants the ability to rotate members out of the unit after five years. Last week, . Note, though, that he鈥檚 not trying to rotate officers off of the homicide unit. Maybe that tells us everything we need to know.
What does all this mean for marijuana decriminalization? Probably nothing. But maybe it should. We talked a few weeks back about how keeping marijuana illegal . Last week's federal indictment suggests it could聽be having [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Lockit[/url] the same effect on聽law enforcement. Maybe it doesn鈥檛 have to be this way.

Cinder, a badly burned, 35 pound, female bear cub, is put into a crate by Washington State Fish and Wildlife bear and cougar specialist Rich Beausoleil at Pangborn Memorial Airport in East Wenatchee, Wash., on Monday. The cub was flown in a small, private airplane piloted by Bill Inman of Seattle, headed for a wildlife rehabilitation location in Lake Tahoe. (Don Seabrook / The Wenatchee World)
By K.C. Mehaffey [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-homme-59]Portefeuille Homme[/url] / The Wenatchee World
METHOW 鈥?Thursday evening 鈥?two weeks after the Carlton Complex fires roared around his home near Methow 鈥?Steve Love befriended a young bear cub who had suffered severe burns and who wandered up his driveway.
When she took shelter under his horse trailer, he put out a bowl of water and gently tossed her ripened apricots from his tree.
And when she started whimpering that night, he came as close as he dared and tried to comfort her. 鈥淚 said, 鈥榊ou鈥檙e OK little bear. Everything will be all right鈥?in a soothing voice,鈥?he recalled.
The next day, a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife officer captured her and brought her to Rich Beausoleil, the agency鈥檚 bear and cougar specialist. And by Monday morning 鈥?with the donated help of many more people 鈥?the 37-pound cub since named Cinder was on her way by private plane to a wildlife rehabilitation center in Lake Tahoe.
Beausoleil said her paws were so badly burned, she was walking on her elbows when Wildlife officer Jason Day captured her on Friday.
The pads on all four paws have third-degree burns and may never fully recover, said East Wenatchee veterinarian Randy Hein, who checked her out on Sunday night to ensure she could make the trip to California.
Hein said Cinder鈥檚 claws also burned and may come off because there was no blood flowing to them. She suffered second-degree burns on her face and chest, and the tips of her ears.
鈥淚t鈥檚 going to be months and months of [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-long-51]Portefeuille long[/url] rehabilitation for this little bear,鈥?Hein said. 鈥淏ut she was eating well. She came in with a belly full of grub, which is good. For her body to heal, she鈥檒l have to have good nutrition.鈥?
Beausoleil said Hein made a special trip to his office Sunday to examine Cinder after Seattle pilot Bill Inman heard about the cub through Pilots for Paws and offered to fly to Wenatchee and take her directly to Lake Tahoe. A director of product development for the outdoor clothing company Exofficio, Inman was headed to Salt Lake City for a trade show and added an extra leg to his trip to help Cinder.
Hein, too, provided his time and supplies 鈥?including burn ointment, antibiotics and bandages 鈥?to help the young cub burned by fire.
He said when he looked for somewhere to rehabilitate her, Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care came to the top of the list because they have successfully rehabilitated a bear that suffered burns in a wildfire six years ago.
Tom Millham, Wildlife Care鈥檚 director, said he鈥檚 very hopeful Cinder will not only survive, but that she eventually can be released back into the wild near her home in Okanogan County. He said her burns are very similar to the burns on Little Smokey, who came to them in the summer of 2008 weighing just 8.5 pounds. 鈥淲e have some concerns right now, but overall, it looks good,鈥?he said.
The organization is an independent, nonprofit volunteer organization that operates completely on donations.
Beausoleil said he thinks Cinder got caught in [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/echarpe-louis-vuitton-14]锟斤拷charpe Louis Vuitton[/url] a hot spot and was forced to walk on burning hot embers.
He said Love鈥檚 house, near the intersection of Watson Draw and French Creek Road, is in an area where the Carlton Complex fires burned extremely hot on July 17. Most of the trees in the area were torched, and all of the undergrowth is completely gone. Officer Day looked in the area for tracks, but found no evidence that that the mother might be near. It鈥檚 not known whether she made her way to safety, or perished in the fire.
Beausoleil said he鈥檚 gotten reports of people finding wildlife killed by the fire. Residents also spotted a different bear cub in the Alta Lake area last weekend and worried it lost its mother. Beausoleil said with an orchard just above, they were advised to leave the cub alone, and the mother later returned with a sibling and they were reunited.
The green oasis around Love鈥檚 house was the only place within a half mile where any shade could be found.
Love said fire destroyed his garden and fencing, but his house, barn and some of his trees survived.
On Thursday morning, several hours before Cinder found her way to his home, Love said a woman came to the aluminum foundry and sculpture studio in Pateros, where he worked with Richard Beyer and which he now owns. 鈥淪he was taking pictures of my sculpture of two bear cubs,鈥?he said. 鈥淪he lives at Alta Lake and lost her house, and she wanted a picture of something familiar to her.鈥?
It was from her that he learned that bears sometimes come down from the high country after a wildfire. 鈥淎nd one came that evening,鈥?he said.
Cinder, the Carlton Complex鈥檚 own Smokey Bear.

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, [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-cosmic-blossom-63]LV Cosmic Blossom[/url] which brings forth an all-new design that is not only a powerful and unique statement that our clients are looking for, 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 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.
[url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-mahina-cuir-65]LV Mahina cuir[/url] 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 [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-toile-monogram-67]LV Toile Monogram[/url] 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 in the opposite direction, which prevented Hennessey from officially claiming the Veyron s scalp.

CHOBE NATIONAL PARK, Botswana (AP) -- No sign of an elephant in all of two minutes, a tourist teased a guide [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] at Botswana's Chobe National Park, home to tens of thousands of elephants. A minute later, their vehicle cleared a knot of shrubs and elephants loomed ahead beside the dusty road.Such joking wouldn't be possible in many other parts of Africa, where recent years have yielded dire news about ivory poaching. Poachers killed more than 20,000 elephants in 2013 amid rising demand for their tusks in Asia, particularly China, according to international conservation groups.Botswana is a rare bright spot with estimates of its elephant population as high as 200,000. The southern African country's political and economic stability, small human population and other factors make it an elephant haven, though pressure on habitats and conflict with the human population are increasing concerns.Botswana is a challenging model for other African nations struggling to ward off the illegal wildlife trade, ranked by the United Nations alongside arms, drug and human trafficking because its illicit profits run into billions of dollars worldwide.In all of Africa, there are about 420,000 to 650,000, according to some estimates.Elephants roam widely outside conservation areas in landlocked Botswana, which has just 2 million people; in contrast, Kenya, under pressure from poachers, has almost as much territory as Botswana with about 35,000 elephants and 45 million people.Elephants benefit from Botswana's ban on commercial trophy hunting on state land that took effect this year to help other wildlife species whose numbers are in decline. Some elephants, who traditionally range across unfenced borders, may also have crossed into and stayed in Botswana as poaching escalated in neighboring countries, some conservationists say.While official corruption has hooks in African poaching, Transparency International in 2013 listed Botswana at 30th out of 177 countries and territories, based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be. It led all other African countries and was ahead of nations including Portugal, South Korea and Costa Rica in the survey by the Berlin-based watchdog group."Peace and conservation success go hand in [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] hand," said Rudi van Aarde, a South African conservationist at the University of Pretoria who studies regional elephant populations. "Warfare and unrest and improper governance go hand in hand with conservation failures."Botswana says its elephant population is growing at 5 percent a year. Officials have introduced fencing to keep elephants away from villages, and the use of chili peppers is among schemes designed to protect crops from these "intelligent creatures," said Cyril Taolo, deputy director of the country's department of wildlife and national parks."Elephants being elephants, they quickly find their way around some of these things," he said.In December, Botswana President Ian Khama, speaking at an international meeting on elephant conservation in Gaborone, the capital, said that his government had deployed "all our security forces" to help guard against poachers.But some suspects infiltrate across borders. In June, a Zambian poacher was killed in a gunfight with rangers in Chobe park in northern Botswana, which is close to Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Angola.About 50 elephants have been poached annually in recent years in Botswana, according to Taolo.Poaching statistics are far higher elsewhere in Africa. Poachers, some shooting from helicopters, killed about 70 elephants over a two-month period in Garamba National Park in Congo, in Central Africa, the park director said in June. Late last year, authorities in neighboring Zimbabwe reported that more than 100 elephants were killed by cyanide poisoning in the western Hwange game reserve.The carnage has drawn comparisons to an elephant slaughter in the 1970s and 1980s that only eased with an international ban on the ivory trade in 1989. Insurgent groups and organized crime syndicates are prominent in today's killings, officials and analysts say."We're going through that again, in a lot of ways," George Wittemyer, an American expert who has studied elephants in Kenya, said in reference to the poaching surge decades ago. Wittemyer, an assistant professor at Colorado State University's department of fish, wildlife, and conservation biology, said Kenya had made progress in combatting poachers, but acknowledged: "We're definitely not anywhere near out of the woods yet."In Botswana's Chobe park, elephants lumber and forage by the dozens close to the river, where they have stripped away much of the foliage. On a recent morning, an elephant swam to reeds in the river, its trunk aloft as its bulky body dipped through the water in a surprisingly fluid motion. Outside the park, a herd of elephants leisurely crossed a road near a town, seemingly unperturbed by passing cars.Elephants Without Borders, a Botswana-based group, is leading what it describes as the biggest continent-wide, aerial census of elephants since the 1970s with funding from Microsoft co-founder and billionaire Paul Allen. The goal is to use the data to better marshal conservation efforts across Africa, said Mike Chase, the group's director.Elephants have "situational awareness" about risky areas, Chase said. He cited reports that many elephants entered Botswana during [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/url] the Angolan civil war and some returned to Angola only when the war ended in 2002.Taolo, the wildlife official, said Botswana recognizes that elephants are a global heritage and need international support: "Protecting those elephants comes at a real cost."

The United States was "appalled by today's [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/url] disgraceful shelling" and urged Israel to do more to prevent civilian casualties, according to a statement by State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki. She also called for an investigation into recent attacks on U.N. schools.
It was the second strike on a school in less than a week
The Israeli military said it had "targeted three Islamic Jihad terrorists on board a motorcycle in the vicinity of an UNRWA school in Rafah" and added it was "reviewing the consequences of this strike."
Islamic Jihad did not report any of its militants killed or injured in the incident. A Palestinian health official said all those wounded or killed were from inside the school.
Amid Hamas accusations that Israel had misled the world about the alleged capture of an Israeli soldier, the officer, Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, was buried on Sunday after the military said it recovered [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/url] remains and he was killed in action.
Goldin's suspected abduction led to the collapse of a U.S.- and U.N.-brokered ceasefire on Friday. In Cairo, efforts to find a new truce were due to resume on Sunday.
TROOP MOVEMENTS
Israeli media, on the 27th day of the fighting, reported that most Israeli troops had pulled out of Gaza. Reuters TV footage showed a column of Israeli tanks and dozens of infantrymen leaving the enclave.
An Israeli military spokesman stopped short of calling the move a withdrawal, but said residents from some evacuated Gaza neighborhoods had been told by the army they could return.
"The troops are in the midst of a redeployment to other parts of the border," said Lieutenant-Colonel Peter Lerner.
"Indeed we are releasing troops from the front line but the mission is ongoing," he said. "Ground forces are operating. Air forces are operating."
In the town of Rafah, where the military has been battling militants, a missile from an Israeli aircraft struck the entrance to the U.N.-run school, where Palestinians who had fled their homes were sheltering, witnesses and medics said.
Ashraf Al-Qidra, spokesman for the Gaza health ministry, said 10 people had been killed and 30 wounded, all from inside the school.
Robert Serry, U.N. Middle East Special Coordinator, said the school had been sheltering 3,000 displaced persons and the strike caused multiple deaths and injuries.
"It is simply intolerable that another school has come under fire while designated to provide shelter for civilians fleeing the hostilities," he said.
Last Wednesday, at least 15 Palestinians who sought refuge in a U.N.-run school in Jabalya refugee camp were killed during fighting, and the U.N. said Israeli artillery had apparently hit the building. The Israeli military said gunmen had fired [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/url] mortar bombs from near the school and it shot back in response.

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.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) 鈥?A child crying on the television show Game of Thrones jogged a foster parent s memory that he had left a 10-month-old girl inside a sweltering car while he and his partner smoked marijuana at their house, a police affidavit released Monday says.
Seth Jackson, 29, is charged with first-degree murder in the July 24 death in Wichita. No charges have been filed against his partner.
Police say the girl was inside the car with the windows up for more than two hours. It was around 90 degrees outside. An autopsy showed she died of hyperthermia due to heat exposure.
The affidavit says Jackson s partner told police that Jackson called that day to let him know he would be picking the 10-month-old up from the baby sitter after taking their 5-year-old adopted child to a doctor s appointment. Jackson told police that when he arrived home, he locked the car and went inside with his 5-year-old and the pizza.
Jackson s partner said he and Jackson watched one and a half episodes of Games of Thrones and smoked marijuana Jackson had picked up that day, according to the affidavit. The partner told police Jackson realized he had left the 10-month-old outside in the car when he heard a child crying on the TV show.
The men rushed outside, Jackson unlocked [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] the vehicle and his partner removed the child.
The partner told investigators the girl was hot and stiff when he grabbed her from the car and carried her into the house. As he called 911, Jackson attempted CPR but could not get the child s mouth open, according to the affidavit filed by Wichita police detective Ryan Schomaker.
Officers who responded found Jackson still on the phone when they arrived, making calls and repeatedly stating, I left her in the car, she s dead, she s dead, according to the affidavit.
Meanwhile, the girl was unresponsive and lying on her back on the couch. Firefighters moved the girl from the couch to the floor once they arrived and attempted to revive her.
Later in an interview at police headquarters, Jackson s partner told detectives he and Jackson had been foster parents to the 10-month-old girl since she was 2 weeks old. Police have not released the child s name and documents in the case only use her initials.
Although the girl died of hyperthermia, Sedgwick [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] County District Attorney Marc Bennett said the first-degree murder charge was warranted because the child died during the commission of an inherently dangerous felony, aggravated endangering of a child. The case is not charged as intentional murder.
In addition to the 10-month-old, who they were trying to adopt, Jackson and his partner had five other children in their care. They had three other foster children ages 3, 5 and 18, and two adopted children ages 5 and 7. The two younger foster children were visiting other relatives at the time the 10-month-old died.
Prosecutors and Jackson s attorneys agree the circumstances are entirely different than a widely publicized case in Georgia, where a father faces murder and child cruelty charges on suspicion of intentionally leaving a 22-month-old boy inside a hot car last month as he went to work.

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.

click to enlarge The 6th District Circuit Court of Appeals will cast its decision in five Windsor appeals tomorrow, which in sum will affect the future of marriage equality measures in four states (Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee). In [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] Ohio, the plaintiff couples are arguing that the refusal to recognize marriages performed legally in other states is unconstitutional.
U.S. v. Windsor was the landmark 2013 ruling that shot down the Defense Against Marriage Act. Three days after the decision, federal Judge Timothy Black in Ohio ruled that same-sex marriages performed out-of-state must be recognized here. "The question presented is whether a state can do what the federal government cannot 鈥?i.e., discriminate against same-sex couples simply because the majority of the voters don't like homosexuality,鈥?Black wrote. Indeed, Windsor deemed discrimination against same-sex couples unconstitutional across the nationwide board; Ohio, however, still maintains its own constitutional amendment against them, voted on by the people in 2004.
Black writes elsewhere in the case that, for instance, Ohio recognizes marriages between first cousins if and when they are performed in states that recognize same. 鈥淗ow then can Ohio, especially given the historical status of Ohio law, single out same-sex marriages as ones it will not recognize? The short answer is that Ohio cannot鈥?[url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] at least not under the circumstances here.鈥?br>
Black had ordered the state of Ohio to record James Obergefell as the surviving spouse of John Arthur. The couple was married at a Glen Burnie, Md., airport in July 2013 after flying there solely for that purpose. [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Outlet[/url] Ohio, and Spring Grove Cemetery, where Arthur was to be buried, insisted on not recognizing the marriage.
The state appealed the Black decision, and here we are.
The timing of this ruling coinciding with the arrival of the internationally attended Gay Games in Cleveland provides an interesting social juxtaposition.
The Northeast Chapter of the American Constitutional Society will discuss the decisions and their implications at noon on Aug. 7 at the City Club.

Camacho-Torres was a passenger in that vehicle. The Medical Examiner s Office determined she died as a result of multiple blunt force injuries.
The Medical Examiner says Camacho-Torres sister-in-law said the driver of the vehicle was Camacho-Torres husband, though they were not legally married. They have two children together ages [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] nine and two.
The Medical Examiner s Office says Camacho-Torres husband was taken to the hospital following the crash with a skull fracture.
Camacho-Torres family members say she and Ramon Rodriguez-Rodriguez knew they were meant for each other, even at a young age.
They were going to get married, Camacho-Torres sister-in-law Maryann Camacho said.
Family members say they got together when Camacho-Torres was 16, and had been together for more than a decade having two children together.
She wanted the best for her kids and always posted on Facebook going to work for my kids, going to work for my kids, my kids need the best,' Maryann Camacho said.
Maryann Camacho says Camacho-Torres and Rodriguez-Rodriguez were headed to work at the time of the crash.
Her and her husband worked at the same place at Waste Management. They worked there and they had first shift so their shift started at 4:00, Maryann Camacho said.
Maryann Camacho says they were headed to pick up two more co-workers when the crash happened.
When they were passing the light to turn, going down Mitchell Street that s when [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] the other car impacted them, Maryann Camacho said.
The impact destroyed both cars sending debris around the intersection.
The car that ran the red light then smashed into a building.
Following the crash that took her life, Camacho-Torres family is now huddled in grief, trying to process what life will be like without her.
Unexplainable. We couldn t even talk to each other. All we did was cry and mourned and hugged each other, Maryann Camacho said.
Camacho-Torres parents don t speak English. The family is from Puerto Rico but Maryann Camacho translated what they say the world [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] will miss the most about their daughter.
That she was a very good daughter, a good mother, Camacho-Torres parents said.
Maryann Camacho says Camacho-Torres husband-to-be has been moved out of the ICU.
A fund to help the family has been established and donations are being accepted at any Tri City National Bank location.
Police said last week they would refer this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney s Office for possible charges against the 30-year-old driver.

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.

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.

Two of the most damaging fires in California were burning just four miles apart and had burned more than 100 square miles. More than 700 homes were at risk near Burney due to a fire that wasn't contained at all and burning 25,900 acres, Jeff Fontana, an information officer at Susanville fire center said. Three communities were evacuated near that fire, which had already destroyed 28 structures, and residents of another nearby town were forced to leave their homes due to a separate fire that was burning 39,000 acres, Fontana said.

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?

OAK CREEK (WITI) The two-year anniversary is this Tuesday, August 5th. Two years ago, a gunman opened fire inside the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek. When all was said and done, six people had lost their lives, and four others were injured including Oak Creek Police Lieutenant Brian Murphy the first officer on scene.
Members of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin in Oak Creek spent the weekend paying homage to the victims of this tragedy.
On Friday, August 1st, members of the Sikh Temple began four days of memorials reciting the Sikh Holy Book for 48 [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] hours.
On Saturday, members of the Sikh community took part in a memorial run/walk the second Chardhi Kala 6K. The Punjabi name refers to a state of constant optimism, which reflects an acceptance of God s will.
On Tuesday, August 5th, the actual two-year anniversary of the shooting, a remembrance ceremony is planned.
Sunday, August 3rd marked the end of 48 hours of continuous prayer and meditation at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek. Worshippers and supporters have come from across the country to join in remembering the day two years ago, when tragedy struck.
While the anniversary of the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] mass shooting is an opportunity to come together, it s also a day when six families remember their loved ones gunned down at the hands of a white supremacist living in Cudahy.
It s a hard time. It s two years ago, but I miss my dad a lot, Palmeet Kaur Rathor said.
Rathor was inside the Sikh Temple as Wade Michael Page entered on a sunny August morning killing six and wounding four, before taking his own life.

Rathor s father, Prakash Singh was one of the six killed.
We just went to the basement and then I saw my dad. He got shot over here. We were hiding in the bathroom, Rathor said.
Officials believe Page thought he was targeting Muslims though his motive for the shooting may likely never be known.
A representative from the National Sikh Campaign in Washington, D.C. told worshippers there will be a wide-reaching effort, with television ads, and other outreach in an attempt to educate the public about Sikhism.
We believe that all people have the right to practice their faith whether they are Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, Sikh, Gurwin Singh with the National Sikh Campaign said.
In the meantime, a young woman s loss speaks for a senseless tragedy stemming from hate.
This is a hard time. My [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] dad s dying is hard. I remember that day. I was crying, Rathor said.

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 Eden[/url] has dramatically improved since he was rushed [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Evora[/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 Galliera[/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.

(Reuters) - Europe's largest bank HSBC聽warned on Monday that a growing body of international regulations was putting its staff under unprecedented pressure and discouraging them from taking risks.
In a strongly worded statement, HSBC's chairman Douglas Flint called on international regulators to clarify what they expected of bank staff after a recent spate of record fines for misconduct had left them fearful of retribution.
"There is ... an observable and growing danger of disproportionate risk aversion creeping into decision-making in [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] our businesses as individuals, facing uncertainty as to what may be criticized with hindsight and perceiving a zero tolerance of error, seek to protect themselves and the firm from future censure," Flint said.
HSBC also flagged heightened geopolitical tension as it reported a 12 percent drop in pretax profits in the six months to the end of June to $12.3 billion, just below an average forecast of $12.5 billion from 15 analysts polled by the company.
The fall [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] was mainly due to a weak first three months of the year, when profits fell 20 percent from a year ago when the bank's revenues were boosted by asset sales, and reflected lost revenues as a result of closing or selling businesses.
HSBC is in the second phase of a turnaround plan that began in 2011, aiming to make the bank less complex, more efficient and able to deliver better returns and dividends for shareholders.
The bank has axed [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/url] more than 40,000 jobs and sold or closed 60 businesses, which it said has delivered annual cost savings of more than $5 billion.
But the asset sales have hurt revenues and replacing that is one of the biggest challenges facing HSBC.
HSBC's shares initially dropped 2 percent following the results but recovered to trade up 0.2 percent at 0855GMT.

FRANKFURT, Aug 5 (Reuters) - New models and strong sales in China helped [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] BMW AG to beat second-quarter profit forecasts and keep it on track to remain the world's biggest luxury carmaker under the challenge of its German rivals.

Sales by the core BMW brand rose 8.3 percent to 458,000 vehicles, a record high, as new models such as the 4-series coupe and 2-series compact helped the group to tap stronger demand in China and Europe.

Earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) jumped 26 percent to 2.6 billion euros ($3.5 billion), the company said on Tuesday, topping a forecast of 2.23 billion in a Reuters poll of analysts.

"This is a major beat and we remain convinced that the street is underestimating BMW's medium- and long-term earnings power," London-based ISI Group analysts said in a note.

BMW shares were 2.8 percent higher at 1005 GMT, outpacing a 0.6 percent gain by Germany's blue-chip DAX index.

Luxury carmakers weathered a six-year sales slump in Europe thanks in part to strong demand from emerging markets. But signs of a slowdown in some of those countries and a still fragile recovery in Europe has raised concerns about future demand.

BMW also faces strong competition from arch rivals Audi, part of the Volkswagen group and Mercedes-Benz, owned by Daimler.

BMW cautioned on Tuesday that the crisis in [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] Russia was starting to make itself felt. After showing little change in the first six months, regional sales fell more than 11 percent in July, Chief Executive Norbert Reithofer said.

BMW's quarterly automotive EBIT margin, the best profitability gauge for peer comparison, came in at 11.7 percent, exceeding the 7.9 percent achieved by Mercedes-Benz, and 9.9 percent by Audi, as well as its own 8-10 percent target range.

Investments in new models and technology to cut carbon dioxide emissions will see automotive profitability eroded in the rest of the year while remaining within the target range, Chief Financial Officer Friedrich Eichiner said.

BMW has quietly repositioned some of its best-selling models upmarket. The coupe and convertible version of its 3-series have been discontinued and replaced with vehicles badged as a 4-series, commanding higher list prices.

BMW has also expanded and renewed its range of luxury offroaders. Sales of the new X5, which hit showrooms in late 2013, rose 29.7 percent in the first half, the company said.

The sale of more luxury offroaders will help offset lower profits from BMW's growing range of smaller cars such as the 2-series Active Tourer and new versions of the Mini.

The proportion of smaller, lower-margin cars will rise to more than 40 percent of the group's overall vehicle sales from 25-30 percent currently, CEO Reithofer said.

In response, BMW is reining in development costs by cooperating with rivals. The group will continue pooling some component purchasing with Daimler, and a decision on whether to build a sportscar with Toyota is expected to be made this year, Reithofer added.

Munich-based BMW is targeting a significant sales increase to 2 million vehicles or more this year, after delivering a record 1.96 million Mini, Rolls Royce and BMW cars in 2013.

The company also reiterated its goal to raise pretax profit by up to 10 percent.

Last [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/url] year, BMW led the global premium race with 1.65 million cars sold by the namesake brand, topping Audi's 1.57 million and third-placed Mercedes with 1.47 million.

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.

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.

Bob Stovall: Following an abrupt stumble in late July we expect the market to move somewhat higher during the rest of 2014. The market has had a remarkable ascent that began 64 months ago 鈥?the fourth largest run since prior to the crash of 1929.  Year-to-date as of July 31st, the S P 500 is up 4.5%. Beneath this is an epic tug-of-war being played out on Wall Street between the bulls and the bears.  The struggle is being waged on a somewhat shaky playing field.  At a time when the economy is experiencing its weakest recovery out of a recession ever, this tepid recovery still continues to trudge ever higher. For example, business investment is rising. Residential construction is higher. Unemployment numbers are low.  The job rate is [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url] growing.  Industrial production is rising.  Monetary policy is still accommodative.  The Feds鈥?meetings aren鈥檛 scary anymore.  Government spending has shrunk meaningfully relative to GDP.  The yield curve is positively sloped.  Long-term interest rates are negative, and corporate profits, despite Wall Street fears and contrasting contradictory forecasts, are rising.
Bank lending to business is strong. At best, this is a reflection of increasing confidence.  At worst, it is a harbinger of modest inflation pressures.  The Fed has stated it would prefer inflation to be higher 鈥?2% is their number.  So you鈥檝e got a case here where the current recovery is the only one in history to occur alongside of zero growth in federal spending.  Federal revenues, in contrast, have been rising steadily 鈥?something that is fairly typical during recoveries.
Spending has not increased at all for the last five years, but revenue has climbed by almost one trillion dollars 鈥?with a T.  Spending as a percent of GDP is back down to just about 20% 鈥?close to the average of the last several decades.  Strong revenue growth is a good sign that the economy is nowhere near a recession.  A weak economy simply does not generate this kind of growth in tax revenues.
This is a very welcome development. So as usual, it鈥檚 easier to build a bear case for U.S. securities that will at some point disappoint investors and easier to be a bear than a bull.  But for the war-weary 鈥?and there are plenty of wars around 鈥?there seems to have been nothing but an endless stream of bad news on the U.S. political and international war fronts.  Iraq is imploding.  Russia menaces what is left of the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] Ukraine. The Palestinians and the Israelis have been duking it out with rockets and aerial bombardments.  The casualty pictures on television are disturbing and the southern border of the U.S. is starting to look like the entrance to Walmart on Thanksgiving night.
So what to expect? Performance will hinge on growth and earnings reacting accordingly.
Perhaps the best anybody can predict at this point is that by some valuation measurements, the market may look toppy.  But it can easily get toppier.  In other words, from this observational perspective, there鈥檚 no need to head into an investment bomb shelter.
Wally Forbes: So you鈥檙e a bully, not a bearboy?
Stovall: I am on the bull side, not the bear side, absolutely 鈥?despite the usual cautionary utterances that you鈥檙e required to make to yourself and to your audience.
So moving on, I have a few stocks for investors to consider. First, L Brands (NASDAQ: LB) 鈥?which was called Limited Brands.
It is a famous company that does fashion retailing. It is very popular with the ladies. Price is about $58, $59 a share, and it pays a dividend of $1.36.  The PE is 17 to 1, depending on whether you鈥檙e looking at last year or 2014.  It鈥檚 had a steady but not dramatically rising price pattern for some time.
Total sales are rising at a rate of about 4% to 5%, and the company is targeting a low single-digit growth in same-store sales. It鈥檚 doing its job of helping the lovely ladies in its marketplace look even lovelier.  So I like it.  It has a good record, pays a dividend and is not excessively pricey.
The next one I like is a large diversified investment manager called Invesco (NYSE: IVZ).  Invesco is highly ranked by the analysts who follow it.  It offers an array of investment options to individuals and institutions.  It has offices around the globe, nearly $800 billion of assets under management, and it has a yield on its indicated dividend of 2.6%.  Current dividend is $1 per share.  Invesco has a large institutional ownership of about 85%, 86%: so it鈥檚 well thought of by professional investors. Fans of IVZ anticipate its growth will outpace that of its peers due to the good relative fund performances of the assets  it manages.
The next one is one that my late wife, Inger, used to love to see come to the front door, and that鈥檚 United Parcel Service (NYSE:UPS). UPS operates in a duopoly with FDX in delivering merchandise and,  importantly, pricing may be getting a little better for these companies.  There鈥檚 a possibility that a holiday small-package [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] surcharge is coming; tacking on fees for deliveries during the busy season.
So UPS provides us with leverage to e-commerce without being a retailer.  You might say Amazon needs UPS more than UPS needs Amazon.  So vis-a-vie FDX, UPS has a better profile in my opinion 鈥?more Europe exposure, less Asia exposure, less next-day air, more domestic ground deliveries.
They have a new labor contract in place. So labor relations look somewhat stable and UPS is now the cheap transport company.  The UPS network handles close to 6% of U.S. GDP on a given day.
Stock is now about $96-97. But it鈥檚 price target is about $110+.While UPS has a multiple higher than that of the S P 500, it鈥檚 shares are selling  lower than its historical premium.

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 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet[/url] 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 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 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 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Outlet Store[/url] 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 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 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK[/url] 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 past and future of golf found themselves headed in opposite directions this weekend at the WGC- Invitational in Akron, Ohio. While hobbled off the course mid-round, notched his second straight win to recapture the No. 1 ranking in the world.
Woods previously owned this event with eight titles, including his 2013 win. Woods has racked up 18 World Golf Championship titles since the WGC series launched in 1999. Only one other golfer, Australia鈥檚 Geoff Ogilvy, has as many as three WGC titles to his name. These big money events and 14 major titles are a big reason Woods has earned a record $110 million in prize money during his illustrious PGA career. Yet all of his past success at the Firestone Country Club could not save Woods Sunday when left the course during his ninth hole after hurting his back. The ignominious end to Woods鈥?tournament comes four months after surgery to alleviate a pinched nerve in his back. Woods鈥?injuries, spotty play in 2014 and majors [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON[/url] drought sparked the usual cries that Woods鈥?best days were well behind him.
Two weeks after winning the British Open in dominating fashion, McIlroy offered another example of why he might be the most talented player in golf. He made up a three stroke deficit Sunday to defeat Sergio Garcia and capture the $1.5 million winner鈥檚 check for his first WGC win. Golf and its corporate partners are desperate to find a star to attract the casual fan to their TV sets after being carried by Woods and for close to two decades. have not been inspiring, but McIlroy has flashed the game on and off the course to break out from the Tour鈥檚 stable of young up-and-comers.
Here is how golf鈥檚 once and (maybe) future king stack up.
Age
Tiger: 38
Rory: 25
Turned Professional
Tiger: 1996 (age: 20)
Rory: 2007 (age: 18)
Career Tournament wins (PGA Tour/worldwide/majors)
Tiger: 79/105/14
Rory: 8/13/3
Woods鈥?majors drought is now six years, but he did win five events in 2013. His 79 career wins are second to only Sam Snead鈥檚 82. Last month, McIlroy became the third youngest player with three majors after Woods and Jack Nicklaus.
Current World Golf Rank
Tiger: #10
Rory: #1
McIlroy first jumped to the head of the official world golf rankings in March 2012 and has been No. 1 a total of 40 weeks. Woods was ranked first as recently as May this year and has held the top spot a record 683 weeks.
Annual Earnings
Tiger: $61.2 million
Rory: $24.3 million
Woods ranked No. 6 in our recent look at the , which measured earnings between June 2013 and June 2014 and includes prize money, endorsements, appearance fees and golf course design income. McIlroy finished No. 35, but will close the [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON solders[/url] gap in our 2015 look at the top-paid.
2014 Prize Money
Tiger: $108,275 (rank: 230)
Rory: $5.2 million (rank: 2)
Injuries have limited Woods to six tournaments in 2014, and he cashed a check in only three of them without a top 20 finish. McIlroy is only $766 behind Bubba Watson among 2014 money leaders.
Career PGA Prize Money
Tiger: $109.6 million (rank: 1)
Rory: $20.3 million (rank: 44)
McIlroy and Woods earned millions in prize money outside the PGA Tour also. McIlroy won the money crowns on the PGA and European Tours in 2012. Woods has a $35 million lead over Phil Mickeslon, who ranks second all-time.
Major Sponsors
Tiger: Nike, , Upper Deck
Rory: Nike, , Omega,
Wood鈥檚 big sponsors continue to dwindle with the latest blow coming from Electronic Arts, which dropped Woods at the end of 2013 from his eponymous video game after 16 versions. He added MusclePharm as his golf bag sponsors in June. Woods and McIlroy are the backbone of Nike鈥檚 golf division, which posted revenue of $789 million for the fiscal year ending in May. Woods originally signed to a five-year, $40 million deal when he turned pro in 1996 and signed his latest extension with the $27.8 billion-in-sales sportswear giant in 2013. Nike inked McIlroy to a blockbuster deal at the end of 2012 that pays more than $10 million annually. Nike is by far the biggest sponsorship deal for both golfers.

If it weren t for the iPhones inability to do voice and data at the same time on Verizon I might have kept the 5s I got a few months back I actually liked it despite the small screen.
If they fix that in the [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags[/url] iPhone 6 and with a bigger screen, I may end up with it.
Problem is I doubt they will. When I inquired about it Verizon blamed Apple and Apple blamed Verizon but BOTH of them mentioned it was likely because neither saw it as [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Buy Celine Bags[/url] a requirement due to upcoming VoLTE networks (but without that being deployed, its useless to me and likely not going to be working for another 2+ years, so its an absurd excuse IMO).

Danny Shelton couldn t help himself. 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. [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton W[/url] Hang in there, Danny. You ve got a new coach with a new slate, and he regards trickery as a treat. john.mcgrath@thenewstribune.com

The UW s Educational Outreach聽department has always had a strong access, and there are many highly talented people in this country without a college degree who could profit from more education, said UW Provost Ana Mari Cauce聽in an email. I would not be surprised to see further expansion in this area, she said, noting that Branon s聽vision is even broader than that.

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-drawn carriage to visit burial sites of loved ones.The building, nearly a century old, serves as the cemetery office, where the latest bill from Ameren showing the early efforts of the solar panels has not yet arrived.

Lori Grassi beat cancer three times and she has 28 friends who ve died of cancer but she s still brimming with hope.Grassi, a 52-year-old [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy Round[/url] Tacoma resident, is one of more than 900 cyclists participating in the Aug. 9-10 on the roads between Seattle and Tacoma. The cyclists are raising money for the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.In its second year, Obliteride is quickly gaining a reputation for spoiling its riders with food and entertainment, ride director Mark Grantor says 100 percent of all donations go to cancer research. (The $100-150 registration fee paid by each cyclist couple and sponsorships go to stage the event.) That is the most important thing to me, Grassi said. I want to participate in something that might help find a cure for, at least, some of the common cancers. Grassi survived breast, cervical and ovarian cancer and has been cancer-free for 13 years. But she was stunned when she started making a list of friends who ve died of cancer. He came up with 28 friends she will ride for.When Obliteride started last year she was quick to sign up, joining a team (The Obliterati) based out of Tacoma s Old Town Bicycle shop. The minimum fundraising requirement for Obliteride s longest ride is $1,975. Each of the four members of the Obliterati raised at least $5,000, said. So far this year the . In total, the 2013 ride raised $1.9 million, Grantor said.The ride isn t easy. The two-day 150-mile route will climb nearly 12,000 feet on Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap Peninsula before reaching the University of Puget Sound. After spending the night at the college, where riders will be entertained with a concert by the Paper Boys, they will return to Seattle on the east side of Puget Sound.Organizers hope people will visit the course to cheer on the riders.There are also 25-, 50-, and 100-mile routes Sunday, Aug.10. The 25- and 50-mile rides are designed to be easier and accessible to more riders.But the longer rides are tough. The way it should be if you ask Grassi. It is hard, but it is not as hard as it sounds, Grassi said. It s harder to burry somebody than it is to ride hills. Grassi and Grantor say most riders are nervous about the fundraising obligation. The minimum fundraising obligation is $1,000 for the 25-mile ride.But Grassi says the fundraising actually is quite easy because almost everybody has been impacted by cancer.Riders can for the ride up until the start of the event. They have until Sept. 30 to raise money.Riders can expect to be well fed (catered meals) by more than 700 volunteers. And they ll also be entertained. Michael Franti is performing at a kickoff party on Thursday, Aug. 8, and three local contestants from the NBC show The Voice will perform at the finish area on Sunday, Aug. 10.

Police will interview key members of Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews' staff as early as this week as part of the investigation into a reporter's stolen dictaphone, less than four months from the November election.  
State parliament resumes on Tuesday after a five-week winter break and police say they will be speaking to members of Mr [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Brea[/url] Andrews' staff about the dictaphone of Sunday Age state political editor Farrah Tomazin, which went missing at the Labor state conference.
A private conversation on the dictaphone between Tomazin and former premier Ted Baillieu was emailed to Liberal members in late June. 
ALP Victorian assistant secretary Kosmos Samaras has admitted to listening to the tape, after it was handed in at the conference.

State secretary Noah Carroll and Mr Andrews' chief of staff John McLindon also listened to the tape. All three have denied distributing the audio. 
Mr Andrews' press secretary Chris Reilly also carried a copy of the audio from Labor's headquarters in Docklands to Mr McLindon on Spring Street. He denies listening to it. 
Labor says [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] the tape was destroyed after the trio listened to it.
Mr Samaras was interviewed by police last week but released without charge pending further investigation. 
Police sources have told Fairfax Media that more people will be interviewed regarding the affair this week.
There are people to be spoken to from different aspects of the Labor Party, including from Daniel Andrews' office,'' they said. 
An opposition spokesman said: as police are conducting inquiries it would not be appropriate to provide a running commentary on this matter.
Mr Andrews has repeatedly said no one on his staff was involved in obtaining or distributing the audio. He said on Monday morning police had not spoken to his staff. 
He has maintained that he is satisfied with his own inquiries despite being unable to find out how the audio was emailed to Liberal members.
The Liberal Party is conducting an internal investigation into how the audio was emailed to its members, a spokesman said the party would co-operate with any police investigation. 
Senior government minister Matthew Guy attacked Mr Andrews citing the Labor leader's comments [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] that Labor and his office had nothing to do with the audio, saying the issue went to the heart of his credibility. 
Does Daniel Andrews still stand by his unequivocal claim that Labor had nothing to do with this incident?'' Mr Guy said. 
Was he lying to Victorians or is he just incompetent?

TULALIP, Wash. -- The two victims of an are back home and recovering this week - one, with hundreds of stitches to her face, head, and body.
Lelani Grove, who helped pull the otter off of her grandson as it attacked him, said her family had only been at the Pilchuck River about 15 minutes when the attack happened Thursday morning.
I hear my daughter screaming, 'What's going on, Bryce?' When I looked closer, there was something on his head - over his head - and around his body, she said. She's screaming and he's screaming and I see him go back under water. This thing obviously was heavy enough to where it [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] took him under.
When I saw that happen, she continued, I just ran.
Grove's grandson, Bryce Moser, had been playing on a nearby rope swing and swimming in the water before the attack. The family has visited the popular swimming hole - under the Russell Road bridge - for years, they said.
Moser, who is 8-years old, said Monday that he didn't remember much about what happened. Doctors put nine staples in his head, and bandages on his arms and body.
I could see that it was biting into his head and it had its claws around him, so I just swam out there and I grabbed [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] the claws to pull it off of him, Grove said. Its neck was long enough that it just started biting on me, and biting into me.
It felt like little knives going in, she added. I just remember trying to hold it as tight as I can and yelling, 'Get him out of the water! Get him out of the water!'
Both Grove and her grandson went to the hospital, but were released by Friday night. Grove has hundreds of stitches to her face and head and may have minor long-term damage to her right eye, she said.
The area where this happened remains closed to the public, said Sgt. Jennifer Maurstad with the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife. Officials were still trying to locate and trap the otter.
We've decided if it's a male, it'd [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] probably be euthanized, Maurstad said. If it's a female with pups, it would probably be relocated.
Otter attacks on humans are extremely rare, Maurstad said. A single case was reported in Washington state in 2013, though not as severe, she added.
Grove said her family wasn't sure why the otter attacked, but that she wanted to make other people aware of what happened.
We respect animals. We know it's their natural habitat, too, she said. I really don't want this to happen to anybody else.

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.

Lebanese troops shelled militant positions in the mountains around the town of Arsal on the Syrian border on Monday, as fierce fighting raged there for a third day.An AFP correspondent on the outskirts of the town said soldiers were firing mortar shells into the mountains and the sound of heavy machine gun fire could also be heard in the area.Thick smoke rose from Arsal, reportedly after a petrol station in the town was set ablaze.In the early hours of Monday morning, several hundred people fled the town during a lull in the fighting.They packed into pick-up trucks and cars to drive out of the region, where militants began fighting the Lebanese army on Saturday afternoon.The clashes began after the arrest of a Syrian man accused of belonging to Al-Qaeda's Syrian branch Al-Nusra Front.Following his arrest, gunmen surrounded army posts before opening fire, sparking clashes that have killed at least 10 soldiers.Another 13 soldiers are missing, along with an unspecified number of policeman, with Lebanon's army chief General Jean Kahwaji saying Sunday that the troops might have been taken hostage.Three civilians have also been killed, according to security sources, two of them during the storming of a police post by the gunmen on Saturday and a third killed by sniper fire on Sunday in Arsal.The violence is the worst in the area since the outbreak of the Syrian conflict in 2011.Arsal is majority Sunni Muslim and broadly sympathetic to the Sunni-dominated uprising next door against Syria's Bashar al-Assad.The town is hosting tens of thousands of refugees, and Kahwaji said Sunday that some of the gunmen had emerged from the informal refugee camps in the area.More than one million Syrian refugees have fled to Lebanon, creating strains on local resources and tensions with the Lebanese population in some areas.bur-sah/anw

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.

Apple is expected to unveil its next iPhone at a special event on Sept. 10, sources told AllThingsD.
D: All Things Digital
The launch comes at an important time for Apple, which continues to make a lot of money from the iPhone but has seen its global market share [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] dip amid a growing wave of lower-cost Android devices, as well as an intense battle with archrival Samsung.
One of the key questions is whether Apple adopts a new tactic to address the midrange of the smartphone market. Historically, Apple has gone after those customers by offering its year-old and two-year-old models for $100 and $200 less than a new iPhone. However, there has been that the company will debut a new lower-cost iPhone alongside whatever update it has in store for the current iPhone 5.
Much of the speculation there has centered on the usual kinds [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] of camera and processor enhancements, as well as the . That has been expected ever since last year.
Naturally, any new phones will be running iOS 7, which since its announcement at Apple s developer conference in June. The new software includes a , but the other new features are largely incremental updates, such as improved notifications, better photo-organizing abilities and .
This has become something of a pattern for Apple, which typically debuts its software update at its June developer conference, tests it for a couple months, then shows the new hardware a couple weeks ahead of the new phone s availability. The iOS update is also available for older models. Apple has already said that iOS 7 will work on many recent iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices.
Apple [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] is also expected to formally launch the next version of Mac OS X, known as Mavericks, in the coming weeks, though that is not expected at the Sept. 10 event.
An Apple representative declined to comment on the timing of any upcoming events.
Consumers, investors (and ) have been pressing Apple for a more rapid pace of innovation.
The company has long been rumored to also be working on television and watch projects, though there is no indication either of those are close to debuting.

Stream the New Spoon Album Now
Such things might happen at any performance of Sleep No More, but last night was special: The McKittrick was the site of a secret (MySpace-sponsored) Spoon show that celebrated the band's excellent eighth album, They Want My Soul, and all that spooky atmosphere was setting the table for a scarily good performance. A little after 9:30 p.m., a lounge singer came out to sing a haunting, jazzy version of "I Just Don't Understand," from the band's new album; as she finished, five hooded men made their way through the crowd. It was classic Sleep No More. Then the red curtain flew [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] up, the bright lights blazed on and Spoon swept away any trace of pretension.
They opened with a bracing attack on the new "Knock Knock Knock." Frontman Britt Daniel's vicious slashes at his guitar set a tone for the rest of the night  a lean, intense set that emphasized Spoon's livewire punk energy. New member Alex Fischel, a keyboardist-guitarist imported from Daniel's side project Divine Fits, fit in naturally without making the band any less light on its feet.
Spoon aced the five new songs they played, from the Al Green-esque groove of "Inside Out" to the bitter recriminations of "Outlier" to the hoarse howl of "Rent I Pay," which built to an insane detonation of a solo from Daniel. The five older songs in the main set hit just as hard: the raw majesty of 2005's "The Beast and Dragon, Adored," the tight-wound jitter of 2002's "Small Stakes." It was a semi-random grab-bag of songs from their deep catalog, but it felt like a greatest hits.
Spoon left the stage around 10:30 in a flare of feedback, after an edge-of-madness [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Artsy[/url] performance of 2009's "Got Nuffin." They returned a minute later "You're still here!" Daniel said in mock surprise and went into a serrated jam on 2005's "I Turn My Camera On," followed by the pure pop uplift of 2007's "You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb."
That was supposed to be it, but the audience demanded one more, and Daniel complied, calling an audible to the rest of the band. They closed out the night with "Black Like Me," the tender bruise that ends 2007's Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, and it felt like the right note to finish on. What happened last night at the McKittrick probably won't be replicated ever again, but it made a strong case that you'd be a fool to miss Spoon in concert if you get the chance. 
Set List:
"Knock Knock Knock""Inside Out""Small Stakes""The Beast and Dragon, Adored""Do You""Don't Make Me a Target""Outlier""Who Makes Your Money""Rent I Pay""Got Nuffin"
Encore"I Turn My Camera On""You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb""Black Like Me"

Looking ahead, national advertising continues to negatively impact core advertising growth but we anticipate strong political advertising demand in the third and fourth quarters and we are well positioned to capture a significant share [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] of this revenue.鈥?
LIN and Media General their merger in March.
Local revenues, which include net local advertising revenues, retransmission consent fee revenues and television station website revenues, increased 10% to $117.3 million in the second quarter. National revenues slipped 5% to $31 million. Core ad revenues were flat and political was $4.6 million.
LIN shareholders will meet August 20 to vote on the merger, which would create a group comprised of 74 stations across 46 markets, reaching 23% of U.S. households.
The [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] broadcaster expects net revenues for the third quarter to be up in the range of 16% to 20% as a result of growth in digital revenues, retransmission consent fees and political revenues.

Tiger Woods makes an awkward follow through after hitting from the lip of a fairway bunker on the second hole during the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational golf tournament Sunday, Aug. 3, 2014, at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. (AP Photo/Mark Duncan)Related Posts
AKRON, Ohio (AP) 鈥?Tiger聽Woods suffered more back pain [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Sac Louis vuitton[/url] Sunday and withdrew after eight holes at the Bridgestone Invitational, struggling to even take off his golf shoes before being driven away to an uncertain future.
In his third tournament since returning from back surgery, Woods injured himself playing a shot from the lip of a bunker on the par-5 second hole. After an awkward slash at the ball, he fell back toward the sand and landed with a thud and kept jogging out of the bunker from his moment.
I just jarred it, and it s been spasming ever since, Woods told a PGA Tour official before leaving.
He kept playing, hitting a number of shockingly bad shots. He hit one shot into the water on the No. 3, some 30 yards short. He came up 65 yards short of the flag on a par 3. And from a bunker on the seventh hole, he blasted out through the green and into the fairway.
After hitting a 315-yard tee shot into the left rough on No. 9, he grimaced at impact, slowly stooped over with his right hand on his leg, reached toward his back and struggled to even remove his tee from the ground. Moments later, he stepped into a cart and headed [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]LOUIS VUITTON Site Officiel[/url] to the parking lot.
At his car, Woods could barely switch out of his golf shoes. His caddie, Joe La Cava, drove him away.
It s just the whole lower back, Woods said. I don t know what happened.
Woods had back surgery March 31 to alleviate an impinged nerve, forcing him to miss the Masters for the first time and the U.S. Open. He returned June 26 at Congressional 鈥?three weeks ahead of his own schedule 鈥?and reported no pain at the Quicken Loans National, where he missed the cut by [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] four shots, or the British Open, where he wound up 69th for his worst 72-hole finish in a major.
Woods was 3 over par for his round when he withdrew.
He did not say whether he would be able to play the PGA Championship next week 鈥?Just trying to get out of here, he told the tour official 鈥?though this surely would make it difficult for Tom Watson to consider Woods as a captain s pick for the Ryder Cup.
Watson has said for the last few months that he wanted Woods on the team if he was healthy and playing well.

"And I would say, 'I don't want those people to be my friends. I'm never going to be friends with the people who beat up a kid while everyone is cheering them on. I hate them.'"The 39-year-old actress, who's best known for her role as Joan Holloway on the hit AMC series, also talks about how she was dropped by her agency when she landed the part.

Kayleen Deaver is a barrel racer and hairstylist from Clovis with family members who grow grapes, hay and cotton. Michael Gomes works in the dairy industry.They agree their paths would not have crossed had it not been for a niche dating website that brought them together: .Now the couple is headed for a November wedding."I tried other dating sites and it's hard when you're country like that," said Deaver, 33. "I thought I would have better luck on there because my family background is in agriculture, so I wasn't foreign to the hay and dirt."Rural lonely hearts like Deaver and Gomes no longer have to be isolated when it comes to meeting other singles. FarmersOnly.com counts more than 2 million members, including about 2,000 within 50 miles of Fresno.Jerry Miller, owner of [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] FarmersOnly.com, started the dating site in Ohio in 2005 to prove love could conquer all, especially distance."When I started, it was a passion because I knew there was a need. When you talk to hundreds of people that are lonely in rural areas, it moves you," Miller said.You don't have to be a farmer to join, Miller said. Anyone who likes and respects the lifestyle is welcome. A few of the posts on the site from central San Joaquin Valley residents illustrate the range."Maybe not in lifestyle or location, but I'm a cowboy at heart!" writes Farmer761260 from Clovis. He says that he lives and works in the city, but was raised [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] in the country and wants to get back someday.Another poster, Farmer377263 from Fresno, touts that he has been in "Ag irrigation for almost 30 years" and says he knows how to treat a lady. "I'm really not sure what to expect from this site ... eventually I would like to be in a long term relationship again. Right now, let's just start with being friends."Members can have a basic profile to view others on the site and send "flirts" for free. Or they can upgrade to the premium package to send private messages for $21.95 a month.Members can sort through profiles and customize options. The website also offers a variety of relationship combinations, including same-sex dates."We want to be just like America is," Miller said. "There are all different types of relationships, everyone has different kinds of lifestyles."Miller said that agricultural people are "definitely more shy," but that user names allow members to be genuine and ease into a relationship."Be yourself. If you look at most of the big sites, everyone's out there trying to impress each other, standing next to fancy cars," Miller said. "On FarmersOnly, they're proud to stand next to their horse or tractor."The dating site is amenable to people in the ag industry who often work longer days than the typical 9-5 job.Gomes, the dairy industry worker, signed up for FarmersOnly.com at the suggestion of [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] a friend. He was hesitant, but after only three days, he found Deaver."It's hard to judge on profiles, but it was a gut feeling," said Gomes, 37, formerly of Chowchilla. "You meet someone from the city, and you're out walking animals all the time and smell like cow, some people just don't get it. It's different. You really have to love it."Deaver, a single mother with two jobs, joined the dating site in March 2013. She said she didn't have time to go out, but wanted to meet someone. Deaver was on for only two weeks when she met Gomes.After emailing and texting, they met in person and hit it off. They now live on a ranch in Clovis with Gomes' three boys and Deaver's daughter.The couple had planned to get married in March, but rescheduled the big day for November.Though Miller said members of all ages are finding love on their site, many success stories come from older people, according to Nicole Stivers, the Central California representative for FarmersOnly.com. This makes sense considering the average age of a farmer is 56."California is one of our biggest-growing states," Stivers said. "We just had a 78-year-old member marry a 75-year-old member. It's really sweet."FarmersOnly.com counts more than 2 million members, including about 2,000 within 50 miles of Fresno.

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 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/url] 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 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/url] 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.
Spike Eskin (@SpikeEskin)

One had a Phillies-related request:
Hey , can you dedicate movin out to Ruben Amaro?
Joe (@corrado_19)

Oh, but that wasn't the only Phillies dig:
Billy Joel wearin Phils cap last night. Most hits at Citizens Bank Park this season
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
Vincent Chase (@dan_killion)

When Miley Cyrus fans meet Billy Joel fans.
Mickipedia (@SEACRESTOUT)

Anyway, here's the setlist [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/url] from Billy Joel at Citizens Bank Park:
1. A Matter of Trust
2. Pressure
3. The Entertainer
4. Vienna
5. Gonna Fly Now (Theme from Rocky)
6. Zanzibar
7. The Longest Time (with Boyz II Men)
8. New York State of Mind
9. Expressway to Your Heart
10. Movin' Out
11. Goodnight Saigon
12. Allentown
13. My Life
14. She's Always a Woman
15. We Didn't Start the Fire
16. Highway to Hell (AC/DC cover)
17. Don't Ask Me Why
18. Scenes From an Italian Restaurant
19. The River of Dreams
20. Piano Man
Encore:
21. Uptown Girl
22. It's Still Rock and Roll to Me
23. Big Shot
24. You May Be Right
25. Only the Good Die Young

Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the team [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] has added long-time Croatian coach Neven Spahija to the bench for the upcoming season.
Hawks hire Neven Spahija as assistant coach.

Spahija, who is 51 years old, was聽 during the season, but more importantly, he was won championships in multiple countries throughout Europe. He was last seen as the head coach of Cibona in 2013, and he has been rumored as a person of interest for multiple head coaching jobs since that point.
Obviously, this is a [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] hire that comes slightly out of left field, but the Hawks needed to fill a spot after left for the head coaching job in Utah, [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] and it will be interesting to see how the "lineup" shakes out on the bench.

I make some tight-lipped pleasantries and arrive, via a circuitous route that ambles around gosh-that-was-an-interesting-night, at the point. It is remarkably difficult to tell somebody, in person and without prevaricating, that they have raped you. It is difficult to explain in an even tone to someone who likes to think of himself as a decent human being that he has probably [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Brea[/url] hurt you, but you must keep your voice soft and steady, because something between fear and fury is boiling in the back of your throat and you re worried about what might happen if you let it loose. For minutes that feel like months, he just doesn t get it.

And then he gets it.
I have never watched a human face flush and alter quite so curiously as this man s does when I explain why what he did was rape, and that it was unacceptable. He stammers that he is sorry. I thank him, and ask him not to do it again, and then
I get to my feet, and push past the table, and walk away. For now, this man is sorry and ashamed, and there aren t enough jails in the world to hold the hundreds of thousands just like him, perfectly ordinary chaps, a lot less clever than they think they are, who cannot contemplate [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] that they, enlightened modern souls, could really do such harm. Rape, abuse and violence are something that evil men do, and they are not evil men.
Later that night, I receive an enraged email from his wife. I have done something terrible, something truly unforgivable: I have upset her husband.
And that s when I get it. The worst thing we can possibly do in situations like this is make men feel uncomfortable. Acknowledging the enormity of male violence, the staggering scale of entitlement, would require a change in perspective so massive that it s easier just to shut up and not talk about it, and isolate anyone who does. We don t want to hear it.
It can be terribly uncomfortable for men to hear about misogyny, particularly their own. Unfortunately for them, as soon as they start to think and speak about gender they often run into one awful, unshakeable fact: how much men as a whole have hurt women. That means that it s hugely difficult for men to talk about masculinity without coming to terms with how frightening and aggressive masculinity in its modern form has come to be. It s frightening. It s going to hurt.
Here s what I d like to say to those men. It s okay to be afraid. It s okay not to know what you re supposed to be, or how you re supposed to behave. You re not allowed to question what it means to be a man, or even raise the possibility that there might be a question to ask, because if you did, if anyone did, then we might get answers. [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] We might discover that what we all liked to think of as masculinity is in fact a front, that masculinity is actually fragile, and vulnerable, and hurting, and nothing more than human.

A specially outfitted plane carrying Dr. Kent Brantly from West Africa arrived at a military base in Georgia. Brantly was taken to the Atlanta hospital. Another American with Ebola is expected to join him at the hospital in a few days. (AP Photo/David Goldman)Related PostsThe first of two individuals who have contracted the deadly Ebola virus arrived in the US on Saturday. A .
People are concerned for their safety, and I completely understand how you feel.
In July 2012, I was two and half weeks into my three month research trip to Tanzania when outbreaks of .
The regions that bordered Uganda were on alert. Fortunately, I was stationed in the east but my reaction was what you would expect: Get me out of here!
I contacted my supervisor and inquired about my evacuation plan.
It is a frightening prospect to have a disease with a 80-90聽percent聽mortality rate [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Evora[/url] so close to home.聽 People are , people here will get sick and the disease will spread.
There are two things, however, that are important for everyone to understand.
First, .聽Scientists have been studying the disease in well-secured laboratories for years, and there has been no trouble.
In other words, there have been no new cases or incidences of Ebola from these previous exposures to Ebola and related viral hemorrhagic fever diseases.
Second, Ebola is actually very hard to contract. Thanks to the Outbreak, I imagined that the hemorrhagic virus would leap frog across the landscape and I would find myself in the middle of medical quarantine zone in a few days鈥?time.
However, my local colleagues explained that contracting Ebola involves coming into direct contact with an infected person鈥檚 body fluids, namely blood and feces. Caretakers such as relatives and medical staff are at high risk of becoming infected. Otherwise, the chances of anyone else in the community contracting Ebola is practically zero. Transmission can be avoided by wearing protective clothing and gloves, washing your hands, and avoiding physical contact with individuals who are sick.
Before becoming alarmed, consider how likely you are to actually get sick from Ebola compared to other diseases which are more and also dangerous.
For example, as a field ecologist, I routinely handle wild animals that are known carriers of scary diseases such as Hanta virus, monkey pox, Lassa fever, and yes Ebola, too. However, I am more worried [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Galliera[/url] about getting Dengue fever, malaria or Lyme disease, which are carried by biting insects that are hard to control and track.
Ebola is indeed scary, but my chances of contracting it or monkey pox or Lassa fever are actually very low. Despite the messages from the news coverage, the prevalence of Ebola is low. It isn鈥檛 as widespread as other diseases such as malaria, which is more common and widespread. Let鈥檚 compare the numbers. Ebola has killed . Malaria claimed .
Thanks to quick and careful responses of Ugandan Medical and public health workers, only . 聽I feel confident that our doctors and public health staff can keep us safe here in the US.
Despite my cavalier behavior 鈥斅營 don鈥檛 always wear gloves when [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Lockit[/url] handling wild rodents, I am still here and healthy.
So far so good, yet this recent outbreak is a reminder for me to take care and protect myself more seriously. 聽When it comes to Ebola concerns, my advice is to hold tight. Don t freak out! Cool heads prevail in any situation, including this one.

There鈥檚 plenty of time for Barry Sanders, Ricky Seale or Remound Wright to overtake him, however. 聽聽鈥淲e鈥檝e got 28 more practices before we have to play,鈥欌€?Bloomgren said.
The one sad note on the first day was that backup defensive tackle Ikenna Nwafor, a redshirt sophomore, is probably done with football. Shaw said Nwafor likely will be forced into a medical retirement because of an undisclosed leg injury. He played in just three games last year after sitting out his freshman season.
鈥淚t鈥檚 sad with the ability he has and was excited about,鈥欌€?Shaw said. 鈥淗e鈥檚 premed and has a [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/url] bright future outside of football.鈥欌€?
Without the graduated Murphy, Skov and defensive end Ben Gardner, Stanford will have to look to others for a pass rush. Shaw is expecting big things from outside linebackers Kevin Anderson and James Vaughters.
Anderson 鈥渕ade some big plays鈥欌€?last year, Shaw said. 鈥淗e just didn鈥檛 have to play a lot because of the way Trent was. James Vaughters is faster and more explosive than he was a year ago.鈥欌€?
Defensive tackle Aziz Shittu is improved, and end Henry Anderson is healthy, Shaw said. 鈥淎ll those things lead us to believe we can be productive on our pass rush.鈥欌€?

With its eye firmly fixed on a return to profitability, Sony's been making extensive cuts to its business arms in recent days (). So it's no surprise the company would train that cost-cutting eye onto another underperforming unit -- its e-reader business. [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] Sony announced today that it'll be in the US and Canada come "late March" and that all Reader accounts (including library content) would be moved to during that time.

Duane W. Atwood ((Washington State Department of Corrections photo)
A sex offender who served prison time for threatening to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-neverfull-69]Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url] rape two women and burn down their house is now charged with flashing a woman last month in West Seattle.
Duane W. Atwood, 37, was arrested on July 25 for investigation of indecent exposure and failing to register as a sex offender. He s being held at the King County Jail in lieu of $250,000 bail.
According to Seattle police, Atwood lured a woman over to his Nissan Pathfinder on Southwest Orleans Street on July 22 by asking for directions. The woman told police that as she approached the SUV she saw that the man聽 inside was masturbating.
The woman made a note of the聽license plate number聽and dialed 911.
When police found the SUV parked in the 2000 block of Arch Avenue Southwest, they talked to the registered [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/lv-monogram-idylle-70]LV Monogram Idylle[/url] owner and learned that his son, identified as Atwood, had been driving it, police wrote in charging documents. While police only had evidence linking Atwood to the July 25 indecent exposure, they said there had been two similar flashing incidents in the area since July 15.
Atwood, an unregistered sex offender,聽is also under investigation for allegedly calling an acquaintance recently and threatening to rape and kill the woman, Senior Deputy Prosecutor Carla Carlstrom wrote in charges. The victim told authorities that聽she went to high school and church with Atwood.
That investigation is currently ongoing and charges are expected shortly, Carlstrom wrote.
Carlstrom said Atwood s ex-wife has a domestic-violence protection order against him because he threatened to kill her if she [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/monogram-multicolore-71]Monogram Multicolore[/url] ever left him.
Atwood served two years in prison time for breaking into the home聽of two women, setting fire to the structure and writing聽 the word rape on the door.聽聽He also called the home and threatened to rape the women, according to the charges.
The Department of Corrections has聽classified Atwood as a dangerous mentally ill offender , Carlstrom wrote in charges.
The defendant is an untreated, unregistered sex offender who has exhibited dangerous, unpredictable and threatening behavior, Carlstrom wrote.
When detectives spoke with Atwood at the King County Jail he denied exposing himself to the woman, according to the charges. He claimed he was a Fulbright scholar who is working in construction.

RENTON Two familiar Seattle Seahawks were back in football pads. Safety Kam Chancellor and left tackle Russell Okung practiced with the team for the first time since both underwent surgery during the offseason. They returned to practice in limited action Monday, participating only in position [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Acheter louis vuitton[/url] drills. They will be brought along slowly with Chancellor coming off hip surgery in early spring and Okung having surgery on his left foot. Having Chancellor and Okung return to the field highlighted how few health issues the Seahawks face going into this season compared to this point last year. Our guys had a fantastic offseason, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. They came to camp in great shape, and we are hoping to be fast and ready to go Thursday night. The Seahawks entered their first exhibition game last season with nine starters battling injuries, including receivers Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice, tight end Zach Miller and pass rushers Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Chris Clemons.The only regular starters currently out with injuries are linebackers Bobby Wagner and Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith. Carroll said neither are likely to play Thursday at the Denver Broncos but they aren t expected to miss extended time. Wagner is dealing with a hamstring injury and Smith is recovering from offseason ankle surgery.Offensive lineman James Carpenter (calf) was out Monday, but Carroll said he should return in the next couple of days. We know that there are a number of guys on the verge of coming back, Carroll said. Having Harvin healthy and practicing has been a story in itself. Monday marked just over a year to the day when Harvin announced he would undergo hip surgery, forcing him to sit for all but one regular-season game last season.Harvin has been given a few off days as the Seahawks monitor his recovery, but is predominately an active participant in practices as he develops chemistry with quarterback Russell Wilson. We are trying to figure this out with these short weeks how to monitor him just right, Carroll said. He ll practice in kind of a rotation fashion in these next couples weeks. It s really good for Russell to work with him and figure him out because he is that different from other guys. Rookie wide receiver Paul Richardson returned to practice Monday, wearing a non-contact jersey, but said he is healed from a shoulder injury. My shoulder is fine now, he said. I m full go tomorrow. Coach Carroll and the training staff are just making sure everybody is on the same page and that I m healing. That doesn t mean the Seahawks haven t been without some injury blows. They lost tight end Anthony McCoy and defensive [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/26-voyage-louis-vuitton]Voyage Louis Vuitton[/url] tackle Jesse Williams for the season. Both players also missed all of last season.Rookie receiver Kevin Norwood has missed almost a week with a foot injury. Carroll said the team is waiting for more information, but it s going to be a bit. PATIENCE WITH LYNCHMarshawn Lynch sat out June minicamp with an ankle injury, but Carroll said the focus on Lynch now is getting him into football shape as he participated in training camp position drills for the first time since his contract holdout. Carroll said Lynch had a very diligent (offseason) routine and regiment, but isn t in the same shape as others who participated in voluntary Organized Team Activities and the first week of training camp. We are going to take our time with him, Carroll said. We ve always been very patient with him, making sure his body is in great shape. He missed a lot of offseason with us. He did work very hard but it s still football shape he has to get in. OFFENSIVE LINE HELPThe Seahawks announced the signing of offensive tackle Wade Smith to add depth to the position. His signing came following news second-year lineman Michael Bowie had been claimed by the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. Smith was a third-round draft pick for the Miami Dolphins out of Memphis in 2003 and spent the past four seasons with the Houston Texans. The Seahawks also signed offensive tackle Cory Brandon off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals. Rookie tackle Justin Britt (shoulder), who returned to practice Monday, plus Alvin Bailey and recently signed nine-year veteran Eric Winston will all be in the hunt for the Seahawks starting right offensive tackle job. We want to continue to make this position as competitive as possible, Carroll said. These guys, Wade in [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/28-portefeuille-louis-vuitton]Portefeuille Louis Vuitton[/url] particular, bring a lot of experience and tremendous flexibility. EXTRA POINTSRookie safety Dion Bailey was on the sideline with a walking boot on his left leg. Carroll said Bailey has a pretty good ankle sprain. Wide receiver Phil Bates left practice with an illness, Carroll said. Linebacker Bruce Irvin was out, as was defensive tackle Jordan Hill, defensive back DeShawn Shead, rookie defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, rookie linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis and cornerback Akeem Auguste. Rookie defensive end Cassius Marsh returned after missing last week with a groin injury. The Seahawks re-signed defensive tackle and Federal Way grad Andru Pulu and cut linebacker Brandon Denmark.

Long before any thought was given to an increase in rates, it would probably be sensible for the Board to cease references to a [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-homme-59]Portefeuille Homme[/url] future period of stability , he told an audience in Hobart.
The Reserve's latest decision to hold the cash rate at 2.5 per cent and the announcement that accompanies it shows that the softening up period he referred to has not arrived.
Advertisement
The Reserve's statement announcing that rates are on hold - as they have been for a year - is very similar to the one it issued after its meeting a  month ago.
Most importantly, the following statement is repeated:
In the board's judgement, monetary policy is appropriately configured to foster sustainable growth in demand and inflation outcomes consistent with the target. On present indications, the most prudent course is likely to be a period of stability in interest rates.
On Stevens' Hobart formulation, that means that no move up on the rates is [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-long-51]Portefeuille long[/url] on the horizon.
The Australian dollar rose on the news, but not by much, and that gets the tone right.
The Reserve isn't saying that rates are on hold because the economy is in a sweet spot.
[url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/echarpe-louis-vuitton-14]锟斤拷charpe Louis Vuitton[/url] It says again, for example, that consumer demand is only growing moderately, that resources sector investment is beginning to decline significantly, and that signs of improved private sector investment remain tentative as firms wait for more evidence of improved conditions before committing to significant expansion .
In other words the central bank is keeping interest rates on hold because the handover from the resources investment boom to the rest of the economy is still not definitely confirmed.
Until it either is or it isn't, the direction of rates remains uncertain.

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 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] 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 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 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] 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 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 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 [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] 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.

Do your best, and you might have a nice little career. Bring out the best in others, and you can change the world. Do the math 鈥?to accomplish anything significant, you have to involve other people.
Here are five of the best ways to get started:
1. Be generous: Give others your time and energy, and 鈥?most importantly 鈥?the benefit of the doubt. Believe in them, even when they stumble or fail to believe in themselves. It takes no talent whatsoever to believe in someone who is already knocking down walls. What鈥檚 hard is to see the talent buried so deep inside someone even he or she does not know it is there.
2. Be open-minded: Talent takes many forms, and it brings people to some unusual circumstances. Many of the most talented people you [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url] meet will be utterly different than you; they will think differently, act differently, and talk differently. They may be loud when you want to be quiet, and they may be quiet when you are searching for input.
Your greatest challenge is to see past your own biases to spot a light burning inside a package that may at first make little sense to you.

3. Be clear: Your role in life is not to be the smartest or most capable person in the room. Your role is to interact with other people, to collaborate with other people, and to foster talent in other people. I say this without meeting you because this is the highest calling to which any of us can aspire. This may not apply to hermits and recluses, but for the rest of us, this is where we should be aiming.
4. Be persistent: It is never easy to foster talent. People will get discouraged and distracted. They may come to rely on you to do the heavy lifting, instead of demonstrating initiative and using their own intelligence. This is natural, because it takes time to discover one鈥檚 own abilities. It [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] also takes time to accept responsibility for one鈥檚 own outcomes. You can help others, but it is not your role to do all the work for them. With persistence, you can communicate two critical lessons: you have talent burning inside you, and you can bring it out if you are willing to put in sufficient effort.
This leads to two truths: you have to invest effort in others, and they have to invest effort in themselves.
5. Be present: If you are in love with your own abilities and goals, you will never find the treasures that exist all around you. To spot talent, you have to pay attention. You have to look for the smallest clues, and you have to be curious enough to pursue them. The greater your ability to pay attention, the more talent you will find.
One last point鈥?I鈥檓 not just talking about people who work for you. I鈥檓 talking about your colleagues, friends, family and neighbors. You are [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] surrounded by people. Sometimes it is easiest to help those who have the weakest connections to you.

Just when Derrick Rose was coming back [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/url] (again) Paul George got himself injured with a broken ankle, which means an entire season missed by the Indiana Pacers star, resulting in plenty of memes trying to make fun of the situation.
No one has seen more jokes being made at his expense without actually doing something bad than Derrick Rose. Being injured and not playing or playing well makes you an easy target. Rose is [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/21-sacs-du-soir]Sacs du soir Louis Vuitton[/url] into his second and is playing with Team USA, with George heading into his first season of a max contract.
Players have bounced back from these long injuries. Rose might finally be on the right path, although he will need more than just a little bit of luck, which hasn t been on his side over the last two years. George was unlucky in the way he fell. Trying to see this as a bigger thing is simply trying to ride it out for your own ends.
The biggest losers out of all of this, obviously, are the Indiana Pacers. Lance Stephenson is gone, Paul George is gone too. The playoffs forget about a championship or contending for one, seem like something too difficult [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/17-sacs-de-ville]Sacs de ville[/url] to reach.

After the initial collision, the man who caused the wreck then collided with a building on the northeast corner of 11th and Mitchell. The 30-year-old driver suffered significant injuries as a result the crash and was taken to the hospital.
The second vehicle was driven by a 28-year-old Milwaukee man who also suffered significant injuries.
Camacho-Torres was a passenger in that vehicle. The Medical Examiner s Office determined she died as a result of multiple blunt force injuries.
The Medical Examiner says Camacho-Torres sister-in-law said the driver of the vehicle was Camacho-Torres husband, though they were not legally married. They have two children together ages [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] nine and two.
The Medical Examiner s Office says Camacho-Torres husband was taken to the hospital following the crash with a skull fracture.
Camacho-Torres family members say she and Ramon Rodriguez-Rodriguez knew they were meant for each other, even at a young age.
They were going to get married, Camacho-Torres sister-in-law Maryann Camacho said.
Family members say they got together when Camacho-Torres was 16, and had been together for more than a decade having two children together.
She wanted the best for her kids and always posted on Facebook going to work for my kids, going to work for my kids, my kids need the best,' Maryann Camacho said.
Maryann Camacho says Camacho-Torres and Rodriguez-Rodriguez were headed to work at the time of the crash.
Her and her husband worked at the same place at Waste Management. They worked there and they had first shift so their shift started at 4:00, Maryann Camacho said.
Maryann Camacho says they were headed to pick up two more co-workers when the crash happened.
When they were passing the light to turn, going down Mitchell Street that s when [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] the other car impacted them, Maryann Camacho said.
The impact destroyed both cars sending debris around the intersection.
The car that ran the red light then smashed into a building.
Following the crash that took her life, Camacho-Torres family is now huddled in grief, trying to process what life will be like without her.
Unexplainable. We couldn t even talk to each other. All we did was cry and mourned and hugged each other, Maryann Camacho said.
Camacho-Torres parents don t speak English. The family is from Puerto Rico but Maryann Camacho translated what they say the world [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Geodkoop Louis Vuitton[/url] will miss the most about their daughter.
That she was a very good daughter, a good mother, Camacho-Torres parents said.
Maryann Camacho says Camacho-Torres husband-to-be has been moved out of the ICU.
A fund to help the family has been established and donations are being accepted at any Tri City National Bank location.
Police said last week they would refer this case to the Milwaukee County District Attorney s Office for possible charges against the 30-year-old driver.

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.

SRT Hellcat is big news in America thanks to its supercharged 6.2-litre V8 that makes of grunt.
Fiat Chrysler Australia cannot sell the car locally as it is not built in right-hand-drive, so workshops that convert American performance cars for the Australian market are scrambling to fill a niche market for the big coupe.

Only one car in Australian showrooms has more grunt than the Dodge, and is out of reach to all but fabulously wealthy collectors.
Crossover Car Conversions specialist Craig Dean estimates the handful of Hellcats will [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Speedy Bandouliere 30[/url] cost around $180,000 once they land in Australia, making them something of a bargain.
We have a couple of customers interested in them, Dean says.
They re not officially on sale yet [in America] but when they become available we ll try and get some.
You can never have too much horsepower.
Queensland Challenger specialist Norm Clarke says [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] he is also certain to introduce the cars locally.
We ve had quite a bit of interest in them, I ve got three that I have to order plus one for myself, he says.
We are definitely bringing it in. They will definitely be a weapon.
The Hellcat has an advantage of almost 100kW over Australia s most powerful car, the .
Dodge provides Hellcat owners with red and black keys to the car, and only the red key can unleash the full power of its V8.
The car also comes with a valet mode that reduces power levels, blocks access to first gear and locks on the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] stability control using a four-digit pin code.

Here we list four driving destinations, all easy day trips from the Allentown area. Plan your day with enough time to see and experience it all, and it's a safe bet your offspring won't spring off into temper tantrums. In fact, they'll probably like these mixes of history, education and culture more than you'd suspect ? although topping it off with a little fun along the way certainly wouldn't hurt.PhiladelphiaDistance: 62 miles (1 hour, 8 minutes)Educational: The area just west of the Ben Franklin Bridge is home to a wealth of Colonial history. A visit to Independence Hall (520 Chestnut St., 215-965-2305) is practically required; tickets during the summer and fall often run out by 11 a.m., so get in line early, or call 877-444-6777 to reserve in advance. Just steps away in Independence Hall National Park you?ll find the Liberty Bell (526 Market St.) and nearby Franklin Court (314-321 Market St.), which houses the remains of Ben Franklin's home and associated buildings.Recreational: Philadelphia is home of the cheesesteak, and Jim's Steaks certainly comes close to having perfected it (400 South St., 215-928-1911). Jim's is located in the funky South Street strip, a great place to stroll for its boutiques and [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Alma[/url] other dining options. Traffic is always jammed and parking scarce, so consider leaving your car a few blocks north and walking down.HarrisburgDistance: 82 miles (1 hour, 19 minutes)Educational: Gettysburg is another 40 miles southwest of the city, and in Harrisburg itself you can check out the National Civil War Museum (100 Concert Drive, 717-260-1861). The place is frequented by families, students, Civil War buffs and historians alike. Collections include many artifacts from Gen. Robert E. Lee and President Abraham Lincoln. The vast majority contain materials of the average soldier from the North and South, giving visitors a clear idea what life was like on the battlefield.Recreational: Hats off to Hersheypark, just 15 minutes east of Harrisburg (100 W. Hersheypark Drive, Hershey, 800-437-7439). Hersheypark's amusements include a dozen roller coasters, family rides and water rides and sides. A great place to start your visit is at Hershey's Chocolate World (251 Park Blvd., 717-534-4900). Attractions there include a tour by automated track car that lets you witness (and smell) the transformation from bean to milk chocolate. Just don't leap off the car to scoop up the goodies.LancasterDistance: 69 miles (1 hour, 20 minutes)Educational: Many, many Amish live in the area around Lancaster, and you can learn firsthand about their lifestyle and culture at the Amish Farm House (2395 Lincoln Highway East, 717-394-6185). Opened nearly 60 years ago, the attractions include an authentic Amish one-room schoolhouse with Katie Beiler, a former Amish teacher; a blacksmith shop (with blacksmiths on site [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Artsy[/url] weekends through Aug. 19); and a 15-acre farm with a stone barn dating from 1803 ? sitting on land deeded by William Penn.Recreational: A Dutch experience of another sort, and just a short hop away, is Dutch Wonderland (2249 Lincoln Highway East, 866-386-2839). This 48-acre amusement park is ideal for families with young children, and rides such as the Sky Fighter and Frog Hopper are a throwback to carnival days. There's also a monorail, fun slide and kid-friendly roller coaster.BaltimoreDistance: 148 [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Audacieuse[/url] miles (2 hours, 30 minutes)Educational: Baltimore has a wealth of historical sites that are easy to hit in a single day. Fort McHenry (2400 E. Fort Ave., 410-962-4290) is of course famous for its role in the War of 1812, as Francis Scott Key witnessed the fighting from a British warship when he wrote "The Star-Spangled Banner." And don?t miss the railroad regalia. The "B" in "B O" stands for Baltimore, as in the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. And the (901 W. Pratt St., 410-752-2490) contains the most important railroad collection in AmericaRecreational: Located in the Johns Hopkins area, the Papermoon Diner (227 W. 29th St., 410-889-4444) describes itself as an "eccentric, eclectic, Technicolor dining experience," which in this case might be an understatement. Swivel seats at the dining bar reflect an array of bubble gum colors, and the menus are bound in recycled storybooks. The decor resembles a toy shop run amok, and menu items include a fun assortment of sandwiches, omelets and quesadillas, as well as a bacon milkshake with actual bacon crumbles.

BATON ROUGE, La. (August 4, 2014) Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal headed Monday to Texas' border with Mexico to get a closer look at the nation's immigration crisis.
The Republican governor and likely 2016 presidential candidate was scheduled to take a helicopter ride to get a view of the area Monday, take a boat tour up the Rio Grande River and speak with public safety officials about the influx of people illegally crossing into the United States.
Also on the trip will be Louisiana's state police superintendent, Col. Mike Edmonson, and House Speaker Chuck Kleckley.
Jindal has criticized the Obama administration for giving him little information about more 1,000 unaccompanied immigrant children who have been placed with sponsors in Louisiana and has blamed President Barack Obama for creating a climate that encouraged larger numbers of people to try to enter the United States illegally.

This is what Australia needs; forward-looking, technology-agnostic copyright laws which focus on what you're trying to do rather than the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sacs-louis-vuitton-2013-37]Sacs Louis Vuitton 2013[/url] specific content and technologies you're dealing with. Right now if you own the same movie on VHS tape and DVD, you can make a backup of the tape but not the disc. We need copyright laws which are future-proof, so we don't need to rewrite them every time a new technology comes along.Ripping your movies is still against the law in Australia, even though movies and music are both simply ones and zeros on a shiny disc. Back in 2007 when Australian law finally embraced CD ripping, then Attorney-General Philip Ruddock put DVD ripping in the too hard basket but promised it would be considered in the next copyright review 鈥?which is underway now. Don't be too envious of the new UK laws, because there's one slight catch with its new-found freedoms. Brits are allowed to copy DVDs and Blu-rays, but they're not allowed to break the copyright protection on the disc. Which of course means they can't exercise their legal right to copy the disc. It's unlikely that the government will be brave enough to demand that Hollywood strip copyright protection from discs sold in the UK. Or that Hollywood would comply if they did ask. So the new copyright laws are a joke.Unfortunately we have a similar mess in Australia, because the US Free Trade Agreement saw us inherit some of the more draconian sections of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Australian law forbids [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-millimetre-artsy-41]Louis Vuitton Millimetre Artsy[/url] circumventing Digital Rights Management, such as the encryption used on DVDs and Blu-rays. So even if we were permitted to copy movies we've purchased, we're not permitted to bypass the encryption, which is necessary in order to copy the movie. It's a Catch 22 which a parliamentary report on the issue describes as a lamentable and inexcusable flaw... that verges on absurdity .Of course the government is happy to ignore parliamentary reports which put the rights of Australians before the interests of big business. The IT pricing inquiry recommended that Australians be permitted to bypass technological protection measures in order to sidestep region-coding on DVDs. The inquiry also suggested a ban on the geoblocking which keeps us out of foreign services like Netflix. The point of these two recommendations was to remove the artificial barriers created by the movie studios in order to rip off Australians, but the government is yet to do anything about it.You might argue that free digital downloads such as Digital Copy Plus and UltraViolet negate the need to rip your DVDs, but they don't. When you buy a movie on disc . We should still be entitled to copy the movie disc to our format of choice, just as we can with music CDs.Our right to rip DVDs didn't go in the too hard basket during the last copyright review because it's technically difficult. Software like Handbrake and AnyDVD can rip your DVDs and Blu-rays just as easily as iTunes and Windows Media Player can rip your music CDs. We were denied the right to format-shift our movies because the [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-keepall-49]Sac Louis Vuitton Keepall[/url] powerful movie studios had the ear of the government and demanded special treatment. , with the government more interested in punishing wrongdoers and protecting old-world business models than actually demanding a better deal for Australian movie lovers.Letting Australians rip the discs they already own will have zero impact on piracy, it simply acknowledges that honest people are entitled to some rights when it comes to content they've paid for. Unfortunately our right to format-shift DVDs is once again likely to end up in the too hard basket, because Attorney-General George Brandis and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull only pay lip service to our rights as consumers.Even if Australian copyright laws do change, it's meaningless because the government has already signed away our rights as part of the US free trade agreement. When it comes to copyright and format-shifting, it seems Australian consumers only have the right to remain silent.Read more posts from Adam Turner's .

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?

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.

 At an Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce lunch in Sydney last week, Ms Livingstone gave her first major speech as BCA president to argue that building innovation infrastructure would ensure a strong and competitive economy in a rapidly changing [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sacoche LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] world. She said better teaching of science, technology, engineering and mathematics was an essential part of this push.
In an interview she said urgent intervention was needed in the education and training system as early as kindergarten, to protect future prosperity.

Asked about the government s plans to allow universities to set their own fees, Ms Livingstone said the price signal would give school leavers a greater opportunity to weigh up the benefits of different types of education.
I would say there are too many people going to university and not enough going through the VET system, she said. It does not preclude them from later entry into the university system. I just think some students would be better off with vocation and skill training and having work experience.
Ms Livingstone, however, expressed concern about postgraduate university students paying fees for the first time and the unintended consequences of certain decisions, such as the cuts to high level research having a disproportionate impact on collaborative research programs with business and other institutions. She said Australia needed to support a greater number of students undertaking high-end research. 
Her comments were made before a speech by Group of Eight universities chairman Ian Young to the National Press Club last week when he revealed that many elite universities, such as his own Australian National University, would probably enrol fewer students under a deregulated fee system.
The enrolment figures of Australia's top research universities, such as ANU, Sydney and Melbourne, exceed world standards; they typically reach [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON Homme[/url] up to 50,000 students, compared to Stanford in the US with 15,000.
This is because, under the capped fee system, universities must enrol huge numbers of students to subsidise their research programs.
If elite universities are allowed to increase their fees then they will be able to reduce the size of their institutions and offer a more personalised learning experience, Professor Young said. This is exactly what some of his fellow vice-chancellors have told him they will do.
He said this downsizing would have a trickle-down effect throughout the university sector and lead to more high-achieving students attending regional and suburban universities.
In a sense, if you re not a Group of Eight university that should be good news, because what it means is it s going to free up in the future more capable students for other institutions, he said. I think there will be a trickle-down or a flow-across effect as a result of that, and I think that will be good for the quality of education we provide and indeed for the quality of research we provide.
Regional Universities Network chairman Peter Lee said he was very sceptical about Professor Young's predictions.
Professor Lee, who is the vice-chancellor at Southern Cross University, said any slimming down at elite universities would happen gradually over a long [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sacoche LOUIS VUITTON Homme pas cher[/url] time frame.
He said he doubts that regional universities would benefit from a trickle down of high-achieving students who could no longer find a place at elite universities.

A few weeks ago I went to Centralia for their celebration of antiques they have a beautiful downtown, by the way. If you haven t been you should visit the antique stores, lovely coffee shops, and a McMenamin s that has a movie theater. While shopping I stumbled on a gold mine purchase in my life a Shriner bobble head doll, still in it s original box.I love the Shriners. When I was 8 our next door neighbor was doing a medical school rotation at the Shriners Hospital in San Francisco, and upon seeing that I was confined to a wheelchair and in a fair amount of pain he asked if he could help. My parents told him that I d seen a lot of doctors who said nothing could be done, and that my care would continue to be about pain management and mobility aids. My neighbor set me up with an appointment with some Shriners orthopedic specialists who looked into my case, took me in as a patient, and had me walking again, pain free, within six months.One of my clearest memories of being at Shriners was walking up and down a hallway while some doctors watched my feet. One of my heels didn t touch the ground and caused me great pain if and when it did -- this is something that caused them great concern. Each of them looked at each [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] other, tilted their heads to the side while watching me and said, well, what if we tried until they came up with a plan.This is what the Shriners do they take cases of children under a certain income level that they feel are underserved: burn victims, children with spinal chord injuries, and those with orthopedic problems and ask themselves what they can do to make sure that child is [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] living the best life they can have. That starts from the moment you walk in the door at Shriners you still have to go to school (they had their own teachers who helped you do homework sent from your school) and you had to get yourself there. For one girl that meant rolling herself down the hallway on a table they d put wheels on.Not all the kids at Shriners were as lucky as I was all that remains of my condition is a long scar on the back of my leg. But over the course of your time there they don t set limits in the quest to make you mobile and pain free. Like all other Shriners patients, they continued to see me for free until I was 21. They had to kick me out -- I liked it there so much. That could be seen as an odd sentiment for someone to have for a hospital but their version of hospital didn t fit with what everyone else thought hospitals had to be. Everyone in the hospital was committed to improving lives, solving problems, and being present.Community engagement comes in a lot of different forms I spend quite a bit of time in conversation with folks who will tell you that problems in Olympia are intractable. They are things we have to live with. I guess it s a legacy of my time with the Shriners that makes me so optimistic and willing to tilt my head to the side as people are talking and say, well, what if we tried Every journey starts with a single step, it s true. And sometimes you have to learn how to take that step in the first place. Then you do one thing, and then another and another, and you see where those things take you.SideWalk has housed 200 people and counting. Big Brothers Big Sisters just started matching kids with mentors again. Olympians in a group pledging to Buy Nothing are organizing a gigantic clothing swap. The Clean Team could sure use our help keeping up downtown Olympia. Community gardens are in full swing all over town. Do a thing --every day.I miss my doctors at Shriners they used to joke that I was too easy. They d look up at me and wink -- saying, that s all you got for us? Come on now if you are going to be so mobile you should be running a marathon by now .

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.

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.

After a decade and a half, the festival pulled off something this weekend that not [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/portefeuille-homme-59]Portefeuille Homme[/url] even Coachella has accomplished. It received the first family seal of approval: Malia Obama was spotted in the crowd.
Since Malia turned 16 last month, her parents 鈥?also known as the president of the United States and first lady 鈥?had to give permission for the teenager to attend the fest, held Friday-Sunday in their hometown of Chicago.
Photographic evidence of Malia's visit showed up on Twitter along with several eyewitness tweets from festival-goers who glimpsed the eldest of the two first daughters.

Malia was spotted watching Lorde on Friday night and seen leaving after fellow Chicagoan Chance the Rapper's set, which closed the festival Sunday and featured a cameo by R. Kelly.
As the Chicago reported, "The crowd on Columbus was light as she walked well after the bulk of the crowd has gone at about 10:15 p.m. Malia was wearing a yellow v-neck romper, but more importantly, she and her guards had managed to stage [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/echarpe-louis-vuitton-14]锟斤拷charpe Louis Vuitton[/url] clean in Lolla's messy, muddy fields."

We found your article, Make a Splash very ironic in light of the fact that Olympia and [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/19-porte-monnaie]Porte-Monnaie[/url] Thurston County seriously lack public swimming facilities. There is no public swimming pool. The saltwater parks are polluted. And many of the lakes in the area are off-limits to swimmers; and the ones that are open often have duck feces and are crowded and dirty.It s pathetic to see crowds of people trying to cool off [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/18-pochette-louis-vuitton]Pochette Louis Vuitton[/url] in the splash fountain downtown Olympia or the artificial creek in front of the Children s Museum.

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.

See Her Tonight
Moran Atias聽on聽Tyrant
(10:00聽PM EST,聽FX)
There are plenty of times when your聽聽column is baffled by the ratings, but we really can t figure out why Tyrant isn t taking off as a hot summer series on FX. The show had a troubled history, and we know that it s hard to sell people on a show that s basically Dallas amongst the Middle Eastern royalty, but it s been pretty amazing especially with [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Neverfull[/url] Moran Atias playing a reluctant First Lady dragged into palace intrigue.聽
And that s in addition to the so there s really no excuse for Tyrant not being a big deal. We know that Moran Atias is sure a big draw. Moran must have also impressed director Paul Haggis when she showed up as a [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] regular on the Showtime series based on his film Crash. He cast her alongside stars like Liam Neeson and Adrian Brody in the new Third Person which is getting mixed reviews, but no one has any complaints about Moran.
That s a big leap, too, considering that Moran made her first splash as the sexiest thing in Will Ferrell s failed stab at making a big-screen Land of the Lost. Some other news that ll get no complaints: Moran has a sister, and we ve even written up the 聽here at聽.聽So get to know both Atiases, and we ll work out the double-dating arrangements after we moon over Moran tonight

Eating My Way Through Musikfest like AlexanderAugust 05, 2014|Bill White"The Gordian Knot" in the ancient kingdom of Phrygia came with a prophesy: "Whosoever undoes this wonderful work shall have the world for his kingdom."Kings, princes and warriors tried their luck unraveling the marvelous knot for more than 100 years, with no luck. Then King Alexander of Macedonia, not even 25 years old, arrived to grapple with it.He studied the knot carefully. Then he drew his sword from its scabbard, raised it above his head and brought it down with one mighty stroke that cut the Gordian knot in two."It is thus," cried Alexander, "that I unravel all Gordian knots!"He fulfilled the prophesy, conquering nearly all the known world by the time he was 30. Then he wept, for there were no new worlds to conquer.After my 17 years of conquering funnel cakes, overflowing sandwiches, deep-fried Twinkies and every manner of meat on a stick in the course of Eating My Way Through Musikfest, you might [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Yayoi Kusama Louis Vuitton Soldes[/url] expect that I would end up like Alexander, weeping because there are no more platzes left to conquer. Indeed, this year's Morning Call promotional materials proclaimed me "the great Bill White," which isn't as hyperbolic as you might imagine, at least at this time of year.Think about it. I break my record almost every year. My image hangs from the Hill-to-Hill Bridge. People wear T-shirts with my face on them. They even turned me into a cardboard cutout.The difference is that whereas Alexander contemplated the maps of the known world and had nowhere to go, I face a new culinary knot every August. There are nine new food vendors this year and plenty of holdovers I haven't visited yet. The weather, my level of fitness, my aging all offer new twists every year. Evolutions in the physical landscape of Musikfest and the facilities available to me for writing and rest have added to my degree of difficulty.So as I embark on my 18th annual attempt to unravel this challenging culinary landscape and highlight the variety, quality and cost of Musikfest's food, I do it with the same sense of adventure that marked my first one.Starting around noon, I will plod through the platzes and eat and drink as much as I can over the course of about six hours, writing as I go so you can trace my progressive fall into food coma. My record, established last year, is [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/23-sac-porte-epaule]Sac port锟斤拷 锟斤拷paule[/url] $69.50. If all goes well, I'll slash through that like Alexander cut through the Gordian knot.You can join me, in a less competitive way, by partaking in The Morning Call's Eating Your Way Through Musikfest contest, where you can win T-shirts and other fabulous prizes. Details are available at The Morning Call's tent at Plaza Carnival, and I'll be out there 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday and Saturday to discuss your experiences.But now, it's time for me to get started.12:25. Buffalo Chicken Egg Roll, Grateful Spread, Volksplatz. This was nice and tangy, but not hot. They do have a hot sauce you can put on there if you like it spicier. Cha-CHING. $5.12:35. Chicken on a Stick, Sangtawan Thai Food, Volksplatz. I always try to have a meat-on- a-stick dish on my menu, and this was one of the better ones I've tried, with lots of very juicy, tasty chicken. Cha-CHING. $7.12:45. Bitter Sweet Motel Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Bee's Knees, Volksplatz. This had arugula and sliced Granny Smith apples on sourdough bread, and it was very good. Who says I never eat anything healthy? Cha-CHING. $8.1:05. Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, Handwerkplatz. Man, I was thirsty, so this hit the spot. Cha-CHING. $5.1:19. Giant Chipwich, Bethlehem Dairy Store, Festplatz. This thing was the size of a Frisbee, with lots of ice cream and chocolate chips jammed between two giant cookies. Very good, but massive for my purposes. Cha-CHING. $6.50.1:35. Corn on the Cob, Aw Shucks Corn, Plaza Tropical. I try to include this every year because I think it's the one thing everyone coming to Musikfest should try. Plus, my eating it always makes a funny picture. Cha-CHING. $4.1:45. Bottle of Water, Plaza Tropical. The spices on [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com/24-sac-porte-main]Sac port锟斤拷 main[/url] that corn always make me thirsty. Cha-CHING. $3.2:50. Frozen Pineapple Dipped in White Chocolate, Zuzu Confectionery, Handwerkplatz. I had this late in Musikfest last year, loved it and resolved to eat it on my tour this time. Just the thing on a hot day, and they have lots of different frozen fruits and toppings. I think it's actually in Volksplatz (right on the edge), but I went with the official location. Cha-CHING. $5.3:10. Strongbow Hard Cider, Festplatz. This is less filling than the beer I used to drink every year, and it tastes great. Cha-CHING. $6. Man, it's hot. I think I'll just close my eyes for a moment and 4:40. Regain consciousness inside a great white shark. I must have slept through a freak "sharknado." Luckily, I have my chain saw with me, so I'm able to escape.4:50. Pork Barbecue Sandwich, Carolina Barbecue Co., Liederplatz. When they ask you if you want a fork, say yes. You'll want to get it all. I put their sauce and horseradish on it. Cha-CHING. $7.50.5:05. Bottle of Water, Liederplatz. I'm trying to stay hydrated, and it's working. I feel pretty good. Cha-CHING. $3.6:00. Organic Southwest Sunshine Burger with Cheese, Rodale Catering, Americaplatz. You may not have noticed, but I've been pretty healthy today. This is a black bean vegetarian burger with lettuce and tomato. Even the cheese is organic. I prefer red meat, but it's not bad. Cha-CHING. $10.Not only am I in a non-coma state, but I've broken my record again, barely. I hit $70 for the first time.It is thus that I unravel all Gordian knots! 610-820-6105Bill White's commentary appears Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.Featured ArticlesMore:Related ArticlesAugust 9, 2006August 6, 2012August 1, 2012July 31, 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.

Probablement dans l espoir de franchir enfin [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] un cap la saison prochaine, les Grizzlies de Memphis ont engag茅 un pr茅parateur mental, le r茅put茅 Trevor Moawad.
 
Qualifi茅 r茅guli猫rement pour les playoffs depuis 2010, les Grizzlies font souvent office d outsider pour le titre NBA. Avec une raquette solide autour du duo Gasol-Randolph et une d茅fense de fer men茅e par Tony Allen, il manque n茅anmoins ce petit plus qui permettrait 脿 la franchise du Tennessee de s affirmer [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] comme de vrais candidats au titre.
 
Malgr茅 quelques turbulences au sein de la direction du club cet 茅t茅, il semble que le calme soit revenu 脿 Memphis. Ils ont recrut茅 le coach mental Trevor Moawad, o霉 il a notamment fait partie de 3 titres NCAA avec les 茅quipes de football d Alabama et de Florida State. Comme le relate Sports Illustrated, la m茅thode, qui fonctionne tr茅s bien [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] jusqu ici, consiste 脿 travailler sur la relation et la communication entre les co茅quipiers, ainsi que sur le subconscient de ses joueurs.
 
Avec dej脿 le renfort de Vince Carter, qui va apporter son exp茅rience et des points, Memphis compte bien franchir encore un pallier la saison prochaine avec l arriv茅e dans le staff de Moawad. Reste au coach des Grizzlies, Dave Joerger, de bien faire fonctionner tout ce beau monde.

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.

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.

KABUL, Afghanistan聽 鈥⒙犅燗 man dressed in an Afghan army uniform opened fire Tuesday on foreign troops at a military base, killing at least one U.S. soldier and wounding 15 people, among them a German brigadier general and "about a dozen" Americans, authorities said.Details about the attack at Camp Qargha, a base west of the capital, Kabul, weren't immediately clear. 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 shooter had been killed and that three Afghan army officers were wounded.A U.S. official said one American soldier was killed and "about a dozen" of the wounded were Americans, but declined to comment further. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss details of the attack by name on the record.Germany's military said one NATO soldier was killed, while 15 NATO soldiers were wounded in an assault launched "probably by internal attackers." The wounded included a German brigadier general, who the German military said was receiving medical treatment and was "not in a life-threatening condition."In its statement, NATO said that it was "in the process of assessing the situation."Qargha is known as "Sandhurst in the sand"鈥?referring to the famed British military academy 鈥?as British forces oversaw building the officer school and its training program. In a statement, the British Defense Ministry said it was investigating the incident and that [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Handbags Outlet[/url] "it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time."After the shooting, a soldier in a NATO convoy leaving Camp Qargha fired his pistol in an apparent warning shot in the vicinity of Associated Press journalists and pedestrians nearby. No one was wounded.The Qargha shooting comes as so-called "insider attacks" 鈥?incidents in which Afghan security [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/url] turn on their NATO partners 鈥?largely dropped last year. In 2013, there were 16 deaths in 10 separate attacks. In 2012, such attacks killed 53 coalition troops in 38 separate attacks.Such "insider attacks" are sometimes claimed by the Taliban insurgency as proof of their infiltration. Others are attributed to personal disputes or resentment by Afghans who have soured on the continued international presence in their country more than a dozen years after the fall of the Taliban's ultra-conservative Islamic regime.Foreign aid workers, contractors and other civilians in Afghanistan are increasingly becoming targets of violence as the U.S.-led military coalition continues a withdrawal to be complete by the end of the year.In eastern Paktia province, an Afghan police guard also exchanged fire Tuesday with NATO troops near the governor's office, provincial police chief Gen. Zelmia Oryakhail said. The guard was killed in the gunfight, he said. It wasn't clear if the two incidents were linked and police said they were investigating the incident.Meanwhile Tuesday, a NATO helicopter strike targeting missile-launching Taliban militants killed four civilians in western Afghanistan, an Afghan official said Tuesday. NATO said they were investigating the attack.The attack in western Herat province comes as civilian casualties from NATO attacks remain a contentious issue across the country. Almost 200 people protested against NATO in Herat on Tuesday, carrying the bodies of the dead civilians into the provincial capital and demanding an investigation.The strike happened Monday night in the province's Shindan district, said Raouf Ahmadi, a spokesman for the provincial chief of police. He said Taliban militants launched a missile at an airport nearby, drawing the NATO helicopter's fire. He said the NATO attack killed two men, one woman and a child.In a statement, NATO said it was aware of the attack and was investigating, [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/url] without elaborating.NATO "takes all allegations of civilian casualties seriously, and is assessing the facts surrounding this incident," it said.Civilians increasingly find themselves under fire as the 2001 U.S.-led war draws to a close, as Afghan forces take the lead in operations targeting the Taliban. The civilian death toll in the war in Afghanistan rose 17 percent for the first half of this year, the United Nations reported in July. The U.N. said 1,564 civilians were killed from January through June, compared with 1,342 in the first six months of 2013. It blamedInsurgents were responsible for 74 percent of the casualties, the U.N. said, while pro-government forces were responsible for 9 percent, government forces 8 percent and foreign troops just 1 percent. The rest could not be attributed to any group.Outgoing President Hamid Karzai has repeatedly clashed with NATO over civilian casualties and strongly condemned the helicopter attack Tuesday.Afghan security forces also increasingly find themselves under attack as the planned foreign troop withdrawal draws near. On Tuesday, a police car struck a roadside bomb in the eastern province of Nouristan, killing three officers, provincial police chief Abdul Baqi Nouristani said. Two other roadside bombs in northern Sari Pul province killed three people, including a district police chief and his driver, deputy provincial police chief Sakhi Dad Haidary said.___Associated Press writers Robert Burns in Washington, David Rising in Berlin, Danica Kirka in London and Massoud Hossaini contributed to this report.Copyright 2014 The Associated

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.

ISTANBUL (AP) 鈥?Turkey's main opposition candidate in the upcoming presidential election questioned on Tuesday why electoral authorities are printing millions of extra ballots.Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu said international observers had noted that about 18 million additional ballot papers were being printed for the vote, the first round of which is on Aug. 10. If no candidate wins an absolute majority, a runoff will be held on Aug. 24."Of course some of the ballot papers may come to harm. They could be [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-cabas-bags-38]Celine Cabas Bags[/url] destroyed by rain, floods and mud," Ihsanoglu said. "But what does it mean to print 18 million extra? Who will use these ballots? How will they not go [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-celine-wallets-39]Celine Wallets[/url] into the wrong hands? This is what we are asking. Who is responsible?"A July 31 interim report by the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, which is sending election observers, noted that about 55.8 million voters, including overseas residents, are registered to vote, but that the electoral board had told them it was printing 73.8 million ballots.The board's "decision on the number of ballots to be issued lacks a clear legal basis," the OSCE report said.Responding to a query, the electoral board said the discrepancy arose because the ballot papers were printed in batches of 420. The ballot papers sent to each voting station would be in batches of 420, even if only 30 people were registered [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-clasp-bags-40]Celine Clasp Bags[/url] at that station.The board said unused ballots would be returned.Ihsanoglu is supported by several opposition parties. He is running against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is widely expected to win the election, and Selahattin Demirtas, who heads the left-wing People's Democratic Party.

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?

So last spring, Huff changed the way Penn State's running backs carry the ball, pointing to an study that said ballcarriers who hold the ball vertically fumble less. The transition took time and remains ongoing. But Penn State's backs enter training camp today ready to cleanse the fumbles from their memories.
When I came in, I got emails, letters and calls saying, 'These guys can't hold onto the ball?' " Huff said. "I told them, 'I don't know who those guys are.' That's over.
"Anybody can tell players to hold onto the ball. Heck, all 107,000 people in the stadium do it every Saturday. How you hold onto the ball is the question."
At Penn State, backs now call the ball, "the program." Huff brought that approach from Western , where he coached last year. Head coach P.J. Fleck wanted his backs to take ball security so seriously that "it kills you to put the program on the ground."
To prevent that, Huff asked his running backs to carry the football with the tip pointed toward their chins. Huff quoted a recent NFL study of fumbles, which noted that backs who hold the ball vertically fumble less.
Essentially, Huff said, it's difficult to dislodge a football that's being carried tight and vertically against the body. Former back learned that later in his career, curbing his fumbling tendencies by making the change.
During spring drills, Huff showed clips of backs who fumbled while not holding the ball vertically. On the field, he shouted "Chin" at them daily as a reminder of where to point the football.
Zwinak, who's four yards shy of 2,000 for his career, called the transition "weird" initially, since his muscle memory was so trained [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Tivoli[/url] to hold the ball a different way. But he felt more confident with the change as spring drills ended.
"It's hard to break old habits," Zwinak said. "I've done it so many times that you develop a rhythm and a muscle memory with the way you carry the ball. But every time I got the ball, coach Huff is yelling, 'Chin,' so it's starting to become a habit."
Belton has high expectations for his senior year, saying he wants to be considered among the best backs in the country. To do so, he has worked to run more physically and upgrade his pass-protections skills. Handling the ball, Belton said, was another part of his evolution.
"There are just some things you can't get around," he said. "It's something we had to deal with, and it was definitely awkward at first, but we got into the groove of things. You just have to allow yourself to keep learning, do [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Totally[/url] things to get yourself better and prepare yourself for the next level. That's the point I'm at."
Huff said he prides himself on teaching football concepts rather than being a football "babysitter" on the field. He acknowledged that learning a method of holding the ball would be difficult. He also called it vital.
"It's like Rocky II, when Mick tried to teach Rocky how to fight right-handed," Huff said. "But when you do it the right way, you won't put the ball on the ground."
Five things to watch during Penn State training camp1. Offensive line, offensive line, offensive line. At the media days, coach James Franklin said he expects the line to end up being a strength for us. Franklin did not note a timeline, though. Left tackle Donovan Smith will play alongside four new starters, two of them who could be defensive tackles converted to guard. Still, Franklin said the issue revolves more around experience than talent, and offensive coordinator John Donovan is skilled at calling plays that hide your deficiencies. 2. More running from the QB? Christian Hackenberg won t be running the spread, but Franklin wants him to have a scrambling mindset under duress. The coach also said that Hackenberg, who scored four rushing touchdowns last year, moves better than people think. Maybe [there will be] a little bit more running than you ve seen in the past, Franklin said, but I don t really see us doing a whole lot of designed runs with him. 3. Broader role for the tight ends. Franklin likes their talent and playmaking ability but wants them to play a bigger part in the run game. Jesse James, Kyle Carter and Adam Breneman, who combined for 58 receptions last year, all have added size, which Breneman said is vital for blocking in the Big Ten. Meanwhile, Franklin called freshman Mike Gesicki, who benched 385 in summer testing, everything you want in a tight end. 4. Downhill defense. We throw the first punch and keep on punching, defensive coordinator Bob Shoop said. That s provocative talk, but what does it mean? Linebacker Mike Hull called Shoop s defensive style downhill, saying he expects it to produce more splash plays and turnovers. Hull, who will be central to the defense at middle linebacker, said he fits such a style. Ends C.J. Olaniyan, Deion Barnes and (a healthy) Brad Bars should thrive in the defense, as should cornerback Jordan Lucas and safety Adrian Amos.5. Youth on parade. Freshmen will populate the two-deep and special teams, with 58 first-year players (including walk-ons) on the roster. Wide receivers [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton W[/url] could have the biggest impact, notably DeAndre Thompkins, Saeed Blacknall and Chris Godwin.Mark Wogenrich

The Abbott government is refusing to release more detailed modelling prepared by Treasury in the lead-up to the budget that shows the likely impact of the planned budget measures on different household types.
Documents released under Freedom of Information to Fairfax Media show the federal government delivered its May budget fully aware its spending cuts would hit poorer households much harder than wealthier ones.
But two larger documents were withheld from the FOI request, a 56-page document and a 21-page document, and it is understood they starkly show how less-wealthy households suffer far [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sandals-46]Sandals[/url] bigger falls in disposable income than richer ones, especially for families with children aged between six and 16.
A spokeswoman for Treasurer Joe Hockey said the documents would not be released because they were prepared for cabinet and were therefore protected in the FOI process.

''Every government receives a range of advice and analysis during the budget preparation process,'' the spokeswoman said.
''[And] the Abbott government clearly shows what the welfare changes would mean, with 10 pages of material contained in the budget papers. This is significantly more than has been included in most previous budgets.''
Mr Hockey slammed Fairfax's report of the Treasury analysis on Monday, saying the figures did not tell the complete story.
He also denied the data indicated the government knew its budget would hit the poor the hardest. He noted it ''fails to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sneakers-34]Sneakers Louis Vuitton[/url] take into account the massive number of concessional payments such as discounted pharmaceuticals, discounted transport, discounted child care that goes to lower-income households.''
However, all of these payments had been cut in the federal budget in one way or another.
Subsidies to pharmaceuticals have been reduced, federal funding for transport discounts are being withdrawn, and there are tougher conditions to get childcare benefits.
In an effort to rein in PBS costs, and save $1.3 billion over four years from January, the government wants to increase co-payments for scripts by $5 for general patients, to $42.70, and by 80 for concessional patients, to $6.90.
All of these changes will result in lower income earners being worse off.
But shadow treasurer Chris Bowen slammed Mr Hockey on Monday for attacking the media for ''daring'' to report on the data, saying the Treasurer ought to be ''acknowledging [the] Treasury figures show the fundamental unfairness of the budget''.
''These are Treasury figures. These aren't Sydney Morning Herald's figures, not the Labor Party's figures - these are Treasury figures, which have been released under FOI,'' Mr Bowen told ABC Radio.
He said Mr Hockey had a "glass jaw", [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/loafers-57]Loafers Louis Vuitton[/url] was "in denial" and attacking the media instead of acknowledging his budget's impacts on the poor.
A former Treasury official, who did not want to be named, said he had ''no reason to expect Treasury's figures are wrong''. ''And I have no reason to expect these figures will go away, either,'' he said.
Stephen Koukoulas of Market Economics said the government would have known that its budget was going to affect lower-income households hardest.
''The way that all these policies are actually costed and analysed, there is almost always an income distribution effect.''

Justin Johnson is embracing his changed role, moving from outside to inside receiver.Of course, there's a chance that the junior could revert to outside receiver, as was the case during the spring.But at least for the foreseeable future, Johnson is hoping to lock down a starting spot while trying to help replace the production of departed slot receiver Isaiah Burse."I'm strictly inside right now and we'll just go from there," Johnson said. "I'm excited to play inside. I just want to do whatever will help the team, be a team player."It's different playing inside. You're matched up against linebackers and safeties, not the corners like usual. You have to read the coverages, pre- and post-snap. [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Bags Outlet Store[/url] Sell your routes and make the right adjustments on the fly."To better understand how to excel as an inside target, the 6-foot-1, 207-pound Johnson repeatedly watched footage of Burse during the offseason."He was quick getting in and out of his breaks," Johnson said of Burse, an undrafted rookie who's in training [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine UK Online[/url] camp with the Denver Broncos. "I kind of look at that film and the stuff that he was doing, and that's what I want to take after."The routes are a lot more technical playing inside. You always want to be able to get to your depth and be able to deceive linebackers and safeties with your shoulders and arm movements. Getting in and out of your breaks is key. You've got to make it look like you're going one way, then go the opposite way -- and still be able to go full speed and catch the ball."Johnson played in all 13 games last season, though in limited duties with departed receiver Davante Adams and returning top receiver Josh Harper taking the majority of the reps. Johnson caught eight passes for 65 yards (8.1 yards per catch) and one touchdown.Johnson started spring camp switching over to inside receiver but a variety of injuries among outside receivers led to him being moved back along the perimeter two practices in.Johnson said he still knows how to play outside. But he's focused learning all the nuances to be an inside receiver.Johnson is also well aware of the firepower that Fresno State lost from a year ago, but also the potential number of passes available to come his way.Burse caught 100 passes for 1,026 yards and six touchdowns last season. Adams hauled in 131 receptions for 1,719 yards and 24 touchdowns. Departed tight end Marcel Jensen had 26 catches for 353 yards and three touchdowns."Really, we're all taking that as a challenge, the whole receiving corps ... to produce," Johnson said. "We've got to go out there [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com]Celine Online Outlet[/url] and make the plays (like) the guys who were here last year."We know that if you consistently make plays, you could be one of those guys who's out there getting a lot of those balls."

But when all else fails, she boils it down to one sentence: 鈥淭his is just an awesome program.鈥?br>
 
Considering the numbers alone, it鈥檚 easy to take Morton at her word. The program hires 225 young people between the ages of 14 and 17 to work at 100 or more local businesses for six weeks each summer. This year, there were 268 young people on a waiting list.
 
The program, which is implemented by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government鈥檚 Division of Youth Services, was created to provide the youth with 鈥渞eal and meaningful鈥?work experience 鈥?something that is increasingly important in helping them discover such goals as going to college and finding full-time employment, she said.
 
Job shadowing, mentoring and career guidance are important features of the program, as are the work readiness and life skills workshops that go along it.
The youth 鈥?whose families must meet specific income guidelines 鈥?work 20 hours a week, in June and July. They are paid through LFUCG, [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Palermo[/url] so there鈥檚 no cost to the participating businesses. Child care centers, offices, nursing homes and horse farms are just a few of the work settings.
 
鈥淭he most beneficial thing I鈥檝e seen come out of this program is that the youth are motivated to earn their own money,鈥?Morton said. 鈥淚 love seeing the youths鈥?faces when they pick up their first check. It鈥檚 priceless.鈥?br>
 
Jhamiel Clay, a Lafayette High School sophomore, was assigned to BGADD as part of the Lexington Summer Youth Employment Program. (Photo by Tab Patterson)
Youth worker Takia Huggins-Smith agreed that making her own money is exciting but said there鈥檚 an added benefit.
 
鈥淭he program is good for helping you learn to budget, too, because whenever you get paid, you think you鈥檙e going to have more than you really do,鈥?said Huggins-Smith, a Henry Clay High School junior who works for the Bluegrass Area Development District, mostly in aging services. 鈥淚 already had [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Pallas[/url] my first check spent before I got it. Next check, I鈥檒l budget my spending a little better.鈥?br>
 
Jhamiel Clay, a sophomore at Lafayette also assigned to BGADD, has realized still another benefit 鈥?one that can鈥檛 be measured in dollars and cents: navigating public transportation to get to and from work, as well as working with other people in a professional setting. The latter was the easy part, he said.
 
鈥淚t has really helped me a lot, meeting people,鈥?he said.
 
The young people aren鈥檛 the only ones who benefit from the Summer Youth Employment Program. Businesses, which have the opportunity to contribute to the 鈥渃ommunity and the future of the young people within it,鈥?also reap rewards.
 
鈥淚t鈥檚 a win-win situation for us,鈥?said Lydia Jacobs, program specialist for the Bluegrass Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living, who along with Jamie Peck oversees Huggins-Smith, Clay and one other youth worker, Celena Gray. 鈥淭hey are a huge help 鈥?a huge help.鈥?br>
 
Jacobs said BGADD鈥檚 youth workers primarily perform clerical duties 鈥?filing, making copies, faxing documents, etc. 鈥淚t鈥檚 really endless what they can do. Some of them have to be taught, and that鈥檚 fine with us,鈥?she added.
 
鈥淏usinesses get to see what we see on a regular basis when we work with youth,鈥?Morton said. 鈥淭hey are able to mentor a youth, and they love it. I love doing site visits at businesses because this is when you realize that the business supervisor is committed to the purpose of the program. They are very [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Rendez-Vous[/url] proud of the work the youth has done.
 
Some of the participating businesses even find employees through the program.
 
鈥淒ogtown is one of my favorite sites because over the past seven years, they have hired every summer youth worker we have sent them, ages 16 and above,鈥?Morton said. 鈥淭anbark is another great location. Tanbark has hired summer youth workers from the past and given them training that will assist them in future jobs.鈥?br>
 
Morton doesn鈥檛 hesitate to encourage businesses to get involved. 鈥淭his is an opportunity for everyone to give back to the community and the future of the young people within it.鈥?br>

The new two-year associate鈥檚 degree, which will be offered starting this fall, was created in response to interest from local high school [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] students already supporting their school鈥檚 athletes.
鈥淲e had anywhere from, at small schools, five or six kids interested, up to Midway where they had 30 kids in their athletics training program this last year,鈥?said Becky Railsback, MCC鈥檚 head athletic trainer. 鈥淭here are a ton of students interested in this field, and it gives them an opportunity to not only get their basics out of the way but explore the profession and see if this is something they really want to do at that higher level.鈥?
Tayler Clendenen, 19, is one of the first students to enroll in the program.
She graduated from Robinson High School in the spring and served as a student athletic trainer, working with football, basketball, baseball and track athletes.
Clendenen鈥檚 cousin has a bachelor鈥檚 degree in kinesiology and is a math
teacher at Whitney High School, on track to become a coach. He learned of the new MCC degree and suggested Clendenen apply.
鈥淚 would like to go up to Arlington and train for the Rangers or at least work in the offices where their trainer works,鈥?Clendenen said, adding that baseball is her favorite sport.
鈥淚鈥檓 just so excited (MCC) has the kinesiology program to offer.鈥?
Railsback said students who receive their associate鈥檚 degree in kinesiology still would have to earn their bachelor鈥檚 degree from a four-year [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] university, then obtain either state licensing or national certification.
But MCC credits transfer to most universities, which the college says will save students time, tuition and housing expenses in completing their undergraduate degree.
The credits would not transfer to Baylor University because of differences in how those degree plans are set up, Railsback said.
So far, five students have enrolled in the kinesiology program, a number Railsback hopes to double for the first year.
In addition to courses like varsity sports and care, and prevention of athletic injuries, the program includes courses in nutrition, health and CPR.
Students will learn things like taping and bandaging ankles before a game, treating injuries, and using equipment like ultrasounds and electrical stimulation machines to relieve muscle soreness and tension or treat inflammation.
The students also will assist in treating athletes before and during games for all MCC鈥檚 sports teams, including men鈥檚 and women鈥檚 basketball, baseball, softball, men鈥檚 and women鈥檚 golf and dance.
鈥淎 lot of what we do is 鈥榟urry up and wait,鈥?鈥?Railsback said. 鈥淲e hurry to get them treatment, get them taped up and ready to go for a game, and then we sit and we wait and we hope nothing happens.鈥?
Though many students who major in kinesiology envision working as trainers with [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] professional sports teams, Railsback said other career options include high school or college coaches or physical therapists, though graduate degrees may be required for certain positions.
An emerging career path also includes working with military personnel rehabbing from injuries.
Railsback, who grew up in the San Francisco Bay area, dreamed of being a trainer for the Oakland Athletics, but the team didn鈥檛 have internships when she was earning her bachelor鈥檚 degree at San Jose State University.
She obtained her master鈥檚 degree in education and athletic training from Baylor University, where she also worked with track athletes for two years before landing the job at MCC six years ago.
鈥淭hat鈥檚 kind of everybody鈥檚 dream; we all start out feeling that we鈥檙e going to work up to the professional ranks,鈥?Railsback said. 鈥淭hat drive and ambition is there with the students, but they also know that is difficult . . . internships, volunteering with different things and getting your name out there, a lot of it is networking with the right people and making sure you are in the places you need to be getting the experiences you need.
鈥淚鈥檓 extremely happy where I鈥檓 at, I do get to work with baseball every day, which is fantastic, plus I have six other sports I get to work with, which keeps me on my toes,鈥?Railsback said.

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 [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/milticolor-monogramme-ceinture-25]Milticolor monogramme ceinture[/url] 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 [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/trunks-et-sacs-damier-ceinture-28]Trunks et sacs Damier ceinture[/url] 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.

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.

Dolphins Week In Review, 7/28 8/2
By on August 3, 2014 at 4:32 pm
We re getting further and further into Dolphins training camp as the team has now gone through seven practices and one scrimmage. It s approaching the dog days of camp with the players fighting to get through every practice to eventually start playing against someone in a different colored jersey in a preseason game. With the practices wearing on the players, the team changed camp up a bit with a rousing inter-squad scrimmage at Sun Life Stadium this past Saturday in preparation for the first preseason game this Friday against the Atlanta Falcons.
For more on the past week at Dolphins Training Camp, let鈥檚 take a look back and recap the week that was for the Dolphins from July 28th through August 2nd:
Monday, July 28th
Looking Back At The 1st Weekend Of Camp
Check out this highlight package put together by Dolphins Productions as the聽Miami Dolphins go through the first weekend of training camp for the 2014 season.
The team had off [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-speedy-73]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] on Monday, but Finsiders Columnist Andy Cohen still was able to give us a glimpse of a normal day at Dolphins Training Camp.聽
The Dolphins announced a series of roster moves on Monday following the first three practices of training camp over the weekend.
Tuesday, July 29th
Practice Resumes In Davie
Dolphins.com s Alain Poupart covered offensive coordinator Bill Lazor s first press conference, and talked to a few Dolphins players about how this offensive scheme can help the team get better this season.
Finsiders Analyst John Congemi continued his practice by practice breakdowns by giving his observations from the fourth practice of training camp.
During The Finsiders daily radio show, Bleacher Report s Erik Frenze joined the crew to discuss the emergence of budding Dolphins star Charles Clay.
The Dolphins made more roster moves before practice started up again at the Doctor s Hospital Training Facility, including signing a quarterback.
Game On
The preseason accolades continue to keep piling up for Cameron Wake, as the Dolphins star defensive end was ranked as the 3rd best overall defensive end in Madden 15.
Wednesday, July 30th
Stronger Together
Dolphins.com s Alain Poupart wrote about how a simple t-shirt design by Fins players is helping them come together as a team.
With the offense garnering most of the headlines during training camp, Kevin Coyle s defense is quietly focusing on becoming one of the NFL s most elite units on that side of the ball.
Cornerback Will Davis joined The Finsiders to discuss the ongoing battle at the cornerback position, and how the influence of veterans corners are helping he and fellow 2nd year player Jamar Taylor grow as players.
Q A
Steve Wyche chats with The Finsiders during his day covering the Dolphins in Davie for NFL Network to share his view on the new-look Dolphins offense and the AFC East.聽
Finsiders columnist Andy Cohen opened up his fan mailbag and answered questions from Dolfans on Wednesday.
Thursday, July 31st
Individual Competition
Thursday s practice focused primarily on one-on-one drills, and there s plenty of those types on battles worth watching in camp, including one in particular writes Andy Cohen.
The Dolphins receiving corps could [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-siracusa-75]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] be one of the deepest on the team, and it will be a fierce competition at the back end for some players to make the 53-man roster. But that competition is making each of the players better.
Wide receiver Rishard Matthews joined The Finsiders to talk about the battle at wide receiver, and how his versatility on special teams helps the team.
After adding tight end Brett Brackett on Tuesday, the Dolphins added another player Thursday, and waived the previously added tight end.
Friday, August 1st
Taking The Next Step
Dolphins.com s Alain Poupart writes how the 2013 draft class is finally primed to have an impact after being [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/louis-vuitton-wilshire-76]Louis Vuitton Wilshire[/url] quiet last season.
More Roster Moves
The team announced another roster move, waiving and adding a linebacker.
A National View
In an interview with The Finsiders, MMQB.com鈥檚 and Football Night In America鈥檚 Peter King joined Finsiders host Greg Likens to discuss the Dolphins defense, quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and much more.
Charley Casserly, an NFL Network analyst and former GM of the Texans and Redskins, joins Greg Likens to share his views on Ryan Tannehill, the new-look Dolphins offensive line and other topics.
Saturday, 聽August 2nd
Sun Life Scrimmage
Ryan Tannehill s two touchdown passes highlighted a spirited scrimmage at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday.
Finsiders Analyst John Congemi was on hand for the team s inter-squad scrimmage, and gave his takeaways from it.
The Finsiders kept track of stats during the Sun Life Scrimmage, which you can check out right here.
The newest members of the Dolphins Walk Of Fame were announced after Saturday s scrimmage.
Returning To Miami
The Dolphins made another roster move on Saturday, adding former Dolphin and veteran center Samson Satele.

from the mundane tasks of distributing groceries and other sundries. [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] Instead,
because WalMart does these tasks so efficiently, we can spend time doing things
that are much more valuable, and keep more of our hard-earned money.The key is not to get emotional and shout that WalMart is running small shops
out of town - by definition these businesses are not competitive. Instead, we
need to focus on education and training that will allow our labor force to
engage in more value-added activities.We should celebrate WalMart.
They are the essence of American ingenuity and efficiency. They have saved
consumers countless billions of dollars on [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] things that we all need: food,
pharmaceuticals, back-to-school supplies, etc., etc. We all benefit from the
lower gas prices, lower food prices, etc. that WalMart forces by their
incredible efficiency.Instead of complaining about it, celebrate it.
Then let s focus on training and education so that otherwise less
productive people can be more productive, and have a higher standard of living
and better quality of life.

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.

at the ChinaJoy Conference in Shanghai, Nvidia will launch the new GPU in September.
Gigabyte themselves are working on a custom-cooled variant of the GTX 880 called the G1.Gamer, which will feature a cooler capable of dissipating up to 650W of heat. The heatsink is apparently large enough that it can passively cool the GTX 880 in some situations, meaning the [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-alma-12]Louis Vuitton Alma Tassen[/url] included fans are only necessary during heavy loads.
That s not to say the Maxwell-based GTX 880 will have a TDP of 650W; it ll likely be something much more reasonable, similar [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-speedy-17]Louis Vuitton tassen Speedy[/url] to what we ve seen in current GPUs. The card will feature Nvidia s GM204 GPU, with rumored specs indicating a 256-bit memory bus and 4GB of GDDR5 memory (at least initially).
, who also state that the GTX 880 will launch in September, believe the graphics card will retail [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com/goedkoop-louis-vuitton-portemonn-16]Louis Vuitton Portemonn[/url] between $400 and $450. This would place the card at a similar launch price to the GTX 770, if true.
allegedly show an engineering sample of the GTX 880, although the final model will likely differ slightly on both hardware and PCB design.

Following Mr Abbott s letter to [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/sneakers-34]Sneakers Louis Vuitton[/url] the Sandemans, Queensland Premier Campbell Newman said he was considering changing mandatory reporting provisions for childcare workers.
He said the recent Carmody review on child protection did not make a recommendation along those lines, but "that doesn't mean it won't be part of any changes that we now make".
"We are currently looking at that bit of [url=http://www.saclouisvuittonhomme.com/loafers-57]Loafers Louis Vuitton[/url] legislation and we are very much going to take this on board," Mr Newman said.

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 Handbags Outlet[/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-new-arrivals-35]Celine Bags New Arrivals[/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-trapeze-bags-36]Celine Trapeze Bags[/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."

Sixty-nine years ago today, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima. Three days later, on Aug. 9, 1945, the U.S. dropped a plutonium bomb on the city of Nagasaki.An estimated quarter of a million people died as a result, but only about half on the first day. The rest suffered inhumanely for days and months afterward from severe burns and radiation sickness before dying. Almost all of Hiroshima s health care providers were killed.We hesitate to even imagine the horror experienced by people on those days.Scientists still debate whether the exposure to radiation caused birth defects in the children of survivors, but the elevated cancer deaths among the bomb survivors is well documented.The hibakusha, the Japanese term for bomb survivors, have endured the additional pain of discrimination within their own country by people who don t understand the effects of radiation sickness. Some people still think it is contagious.On the anniversary of the world s only nuclear attack, the [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Siracusa[/url] mayor of Hiroshima makes a speech urging the world to abandon the false security of the global nuclear arms race. It s a plea everyone in the world should take seriously.When conflicts break out around the world, as they have today in Ukraine and the Middle East, there is always the danger that one side or the other might deploy a nuclear weapon.During the peak of the Cold War era, both Russia and the U.S. operated on the nuclear deterrence theory. It was an understandable, but mistaken, belief that no nation would attack another nation that had an arsenal of nuclear weapons.The unfortunate nuclear arms race began because of that line of thinking. Even though several good-faith attempts have been made toward disarmament since, there are more than 17,000 nuclear weapons scattered all over the world today.Put into the wrong hands North Korea, for example, or any number of fringe terrorist organizations we can only imagine the devastation those weapons could cause.Knowing those weapons [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Sistina[/url] are out there and that many nations have stockpiled plutonium from spent nuclear fuel, which can be converted into nuclear [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Speedy[/url] bombs, should make every inhabitant of this planet uneasy.It s alarming when North Korea conducts nuclear tests, or when we learn that China is building up its nuclear war chest and Iran is developing nuclear capability.Japan faces the danger of instability in Northeast Asia, where unpredictable triggers could set off China or North Korea.In last year s Hiroshima Peace Declaration, the city s mayor asked world leaders, Do you honestly believe you can continue to maintain national security by rattling your sabers? Or, as President Obama said in speech in Berlin, We may no longer live in fear of global annihilation, but so long as nuclear weapons exist, we are not truly safe. And yet, despite Japan s leadership and the promising statements of presidents and other world leaders, nuclear disarmament has never been achieved. On the contrary, from a global perspective, the dangers have actually increased.

Monday s ride had a special purpose.
[url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen[/url] We re going to give a $5,000 check to Heather Sheridan whose husband Jay was killed in the line of duty last year, said Tour de Force member Bill Pontious. He s with the Aurora Police Department.
Tour de Force is an organization created after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Jay Sheridan (credit: CBS)
The purpose of the ride is to remember the victims of 9/11 and to raise money for [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Kopen[/url] officers killed in the line of duty during the year, Pontious explained.
That includes other rides to honor fallen officers.
This ride we normally do would be to the police memorial on Colorado Peace Officers Memorial Day which is in May because we actually have a check to deliver today from the national group, Tour de Force, we doing this ride out to Limon today, said Pontious.
And when [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Handtassen[/url] it comes to support on the ride, other officers pitch to help out.
Several SWAT officers will be driving some vehicles, said Pontious. Our SWAT were actually on the original call where Jay was shot in Limon and they were out there for the attempted rescue.
It s likely that vehicle was fairly noticeable, the SAG wagon was actually a SWAT armored vehicle known by the department as The Bear.

Forty years after he slunk out of office, Richard M. Nixon retains the capacity to astonish and disgust.
Just when you thought you could no longer be shocked by Nixon s willingness to abuse power, his seething resentments and paranoia, and his florid anti-Semitism, another round of tapes emerges.
To listen to them 鈥?I highly recommend HBO s new Nixon by Nixon: In His Own Words 鈥?is to be reminded, again, of the 37th president s unrelenting self-absorption. The question is always about what is best for Nixon, never what is best for [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-doctor-frame-42]Celine Doctor Frame Bags[/url] the country; his willingness to hijack the machinery of government to ensure his success shows no bounds.
The crime in Watergate, it turns out, was even worse than the cover-up. I want it implemented on a thievery basis, Nixon explodes at aides. Goddamn it, get in there and get those files. Blow the safe and get it.
Nixon is referring to an earlier, aborted plan to burglarize the Brookings Institution. By the time of the break-in at the Democratic National Committee 鈥?and it took the bungling burglars several attempts 鈥?Nixon had already orchestrated a burglary at the office of Daniel Ellsberg s psychiatrist.
The cover-up was preordained because of the crimes that predated Watergate, Ken Hughes, author of Chasing Shadows: The Nixon Tapes, the Chennault Affair, and the Origins of Watergate, noted at a Washington Post panel I had the privilege of moderating the other evening.
It was a mindset of doing anything to advance Nixon s policies, his political stature, and there was no barrier, including the law, Bob Woodward observed at the session commemorating Nixon s resignation 40 years ago this week.
He was, let us hope, a uniquely damaged and dangerous man to have ascended to the heights of the presidency. The ensuing scariness of the Watergate moment, as the country watched a White House unravel and the country approach a constitutional crisis, was, and thankfully remains, unrivaled in post-Civil War political history.
Indeed, Elizabeth Drew, who chronicled the period for The New Yorker, noted the deliberate diminishment of Watergate by the practice of appending gate to every run-of-the-mill scandal, or pseudo-scandal.
To take one current example: However suspicious you may be of the Internal Revenue Service s handling of conservative groups request for tax-exempt status, the evidence amassed so far shows no Nixonian plot in which the White House schemed to use the IRS to harass political enemies.
So what is the relevance of Nixon to the modern era?
It is interesting 鈥?notwithstanding Carl Bernstein s reasonable cautions against the impossibility of conducting such what-if history 鈥?to imagine the Watergate episode played out against our modern journalistic and political backdrop.
Could the sustained, painstaking reporting by Woodstein 鈥?and editor Ben Bradlee s judicious willingness not only [url=http://www.buycelinebags.com/celine-luggage-43]Celine Luggage[/url] to print what his reporters had uncovered but to hold back when they did not have the story nailed down hard enough 鈥?have survived the gotta-have-it-now environment of Twitter and 24/7 cable news?
That is far from certain.
Even if it did, would a citizenry now accustomed to picking its media source based on its pre-existing political dispositions have absorbed the reality? Again, far from certain.
One of the things that s totally different today is that a consensus evolved in the country based on the best obtainable version of the truth, Bernstein said. Today, I suspect that if you look at why people are seeking out information, it s no longer predominantly for the best obtainable version of the truth, it s for partisan and ideological ammunition to reinforce what they already believe.
Even more important, would our current partisanship-above-all politics have risen to the occasion as did the Watergate-era Congress?
Not to get all misty-eyed about the statesmanship of the Watergate-era Congress: This wasn t just valor on the part of the Republicans, Drew recalled. They were scared and they just wanted to get him out of there to save their own skins.
Still, it is hard to imagine the Congress of Darrell Issa or Ted Cruz dealing with the Watergate scandal, and there is enough reflexive partisanship among Democrats to wonder the same about how they would handle accusations of grave misdeeds by a Democratic incumbent. (However repulsive Bill Clinton s conduct, it wasn t the same).
Which means, sadly, that the answer to the question 鈥?would a modern-day Congress stop a modern-day Nixon? 鈥?may be the least certain of all.

He also said the company has been processing card data securely since June 11. 
Lance Larson, a professor at San Diego [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Chain Louise[/url] State University s Department of Management Information Systems, said new technology has made it easier for hackers to digitally enter a company and install hacking systems. Even if a card has never left the [url=http://www.louisvuitton-pascher.com]Louis Vuitton Citadine[/url] possession of a merchant or customer, it s able to be stolen and sold online, Larson said. People can then purchase anyone s information on websites and use new equipment to print that card and use it at a real location. P.F. Chang's has about 211 locations in the U.S. and abroad. The company also operates Pei Wei Asian Diner, a more casual Asian restaurant chain with more than 190 U.S. locations, none of which were compromised.

Using his methods, a hacker [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton Tassen Kopen[/url] could - in theory - gain access to a passenger jet s avionics equipment and potentially disrupt or modify satellite communications. This could - in theory - interfere with a plane s navigation and safety systems.
The researcher is the first to admit that his methods may be difficult to pull off in the real world but they have proven successful in controlled environments.
The reason for going public with these findings, Santamarta said, is to try and [url=http://www.louisvuittontassenkopen.com]Louis Vuitton[/url] convince avionics equipment manufacturers to fix what he deems as risky security flaws. But not everyone sees the findings as risky.
Representatives for some of the companies listed above said they ve reviewed Santamarta s research and while they did confirm some of the findings, all of the companies downplayed the risk involved.

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 [url=http://www.Saclouisvuittonhomme.com]Sac LOUIS VUITTON[/url] 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 incredib
