SYDNEY, Sept. 11 (Xinhua) -- Last year Australia was the 17th cheapest country in the world to buy an iPhone Wholesale Jerseys Outlet , but on the eve of Apple's 2017 iPhone 8 (or iPhone X) launch, Australia has fallen to No. 25.

With many left asking the question why Australians are paying so much for the device, a new report by Commsec on Monday believed they may have found the answer.

"It could be argued the Aussie dollar is too high against major currencies on current fundamentals," Commsec economist Craig James said in the iPhone price index report.

"Certainly at current exchange rates Australian consumers would find the latest iPad or iPhone less expensive to buy in a raft of Asian countries together with the United States and Canada."

In 2016, the Aussie dollar was buying around 0.76 U.S. cents and in the previous year, it was sitting even lower at 0.69 U.S. cents.

However Wholesale Jerseys From China , strength in commodity prices and weakness in the greenback have seen a surge in the local currency this year, with the Australian dollar around two-year highs at 80.5 U.S. cents.

On current figures, an iPhone 7 (32 GB) purchased downunder will cost 1,079 Australian dollars or 869.67 U.S. dollars when adjusted with exchange rates, but in America the price is 24 percent lower at 649 U.S. dollars.

"When the currency strengthens it does pose challenges for Aussie retailers," James said.

"If they don't pass on the benefits to customers in the form of cheaper imported goods Wholesale Jerseys China , Aussie consumers may go online and source the goods from abroad."

"Or Aussie tourists may purchase goods abroad in preference of buying goods locally."

Although many Australians may feel as though they are getting a raw deal, most analysts still expect Apple's new model to secure record sales downunder.

A boost is much needed for the brand, which was overtaken in global sales for the first time by Chinese smartphone giant Huawei, according to Counterpoint Research's June and July figures for 2017.

But not all currency experts agree that "over-valuation" of the Australian dollar is to blame for the inflated price of iPhones.

"The report is a measure of purchasing power parity, where one good is priced relative to another, but when it comes to things like the iPhone Wholesale Jerseys , where it's made and the cost of electronic goods more broadly, they're just more expensive in Australia then they are in the U.S," IG chief market strategist Chris Weston explained to Xinhua.

"It's a structural issue, I don't think it's reflective of exchange rates or other forces, it's just a reflection that electronic goods in America have been cheaper for a long time."

"We're a massive island in the middle of nowhere, they can charge us whatever they like and we will end up paying it."

Although he disagreed with the iPhone index report's evaluation of Australia's currency Cheap MLB Baseball Jerseys , Weston admitted the information could still be useful for Aussie consumers.

"From a trading perspective I wouldn't give it any consideration whatsoever and from a monetary policy perspective I wouldn't give it any consideration either," Weston said.

"But from a view of where in the wor. Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Nike Huarache Ultra Run Cheap Nike Huarache Cheap Air Huarache Black Cheap Nike Huarache Shoes Cheap Air Huarache Cheap Air Huarache Jordan 13 Shoes For Sale Air Jordan 7 For Sale

DENVER (AP) — Jon Gray ‘s right arm looked dominant again on a night when Trevor Story’s appeared healed.Both were throwing strikes — one from the mound after a few bad outings Trea Turner Jersey , the other from shortstop after being sidelined for a week with a sore elbow.Gray pitched seven crisp innings and Story picked up in All-Star form right where he left off by hitting two doubles as the Colorado Rockies rolled to a 10-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday.Colorado won its fourth straight game since being swept in Los Angeles by the NL West-leading Dodgers, who remained 1½ game ahead of the Rockies in the division. The defending NL champions won 7-4 at Arizona.Colorado did gain ground on St. Louis, pulling within a half-game for the second wild card when the Cardinals lost to the Brewers.“We don’t think too much, only play baseball like we can play and see what happens,” outfielder Gerardo Parra said. “We believe. We’re strong. We’re together.”Gray (12-8) was moved up a day when scheduled starter Tyler Anderson was scratched due to shoulder tightness. Gray worked his way out of a bases-loaded jam in the first and only picked up steam from there. His fastball topped out at 97 mph for the first time in several starts.The right-hander’s one costly mistake was an elevated fastball that Rhys Hoskins hit for a homer in the seventh when the game was out of reach. Gray ended his night by striking out Scott Kingery to finish the inning and left to a round of applause.“I felt like it was more of myself tonight,” Gray said. “It was more aggressive and attacking the zone. That’s where I need to be.”The Rockies cranked up the offense to open a four-game series against a Phillies team that has been eliminated from postseason contention. David Dahl lined a two-run homer in the fourth , Tony Wolters drew four walks and Charlie Blackmon had a single to extend his hitting streak to a career-best 16 games.Story didn’t miss a beat in his return after missing a week with inflammation in his right elbow. His presence was felt at the plate with two hard-hit doubles to center and in the field, where he turned two double plays.“He came out of a nine-inning game fine. That was a confidence-builder for Trevor,” Rockies manager Bud Black said. “He went through the game and played hard, swung hard, threw the ball hard. We feel good about where Trevor is.”Colorado jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the third as Nolan Arenado and Parra delivered run-scoring singles off Zach Eflin (11-8). Wolters and Gray each drew a bases-loaded walk from reliever Austin Davis. Another run scored on a wild pitch.Eflin lasted 2 2/3 innings and allowed five runs before leaving with some tightness in his left side. He’s heading back to Philadelphia on Tuesday to get it checked out.“I felt like the right thing to do with the great season he is having was to get him out of there and out of harm’s way,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “It was a tough decision but I wanted to protect him and his long-term health and well-being.”TRAINER’S ROOMRockies: Anderson remains optimistic he will pitch again this season. “Just have to think about getting back as quick as I can Joe Blanton Jersey ,” he said.CRASHING INTO THE WALLThere was a scary moment in the fourth when Phillies left fielder Aaron Altherr ran into the fence while trying to catch Dahl’s homer. The side of Altherr’s face slammed into the padded fence, his hat flying off. Altherr eventually limped to a cart and was taken away. He sprained his right big toe and bruised a knee. He was also evaluated for a concussion.On the play, the fan trying to catch Dahl’s homer was hit in the head by the ball, his hat flying off as well.UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Vince Velasquez (9-11, 4.59 ERA) makes his second start this season against Colorado on Tuesday. He beat the Rockies on June 14 by allowing two runs over 6 2/3 innings.Rockies: Starter-turned-reliever Chad Bettis (5-2, 5.18 ERA) will once again start and throw between 30 and 50 pitches before turning things over to a fresh bullpen courtesy of Gray going deep into Monday’s game. Former MLB outfielder Lenny Dykstra was indicted by a New Jersey grand jury Wednesday on counts of cocaine possession , methamphetamine possession and making terroristic threats.TMZ Sports reported the three charges are related to a May arrest for allegedly threatening an Uber driver and that each carries a potential sentence of three to five years in prison if he's convicted.The driver alleged Dykstra pulled out a gun and pointed it at his head after he refused to change the destination of the trip, per TMZ. Although police didn't find a firearm upon arriving at the scene, they did find him in possession of cocaine, marijuana and MDMA.Matthew Blit, the 55-year-old's attorney, provided a statement to TMZ following Wednesday's indictment."A grand jury will indict a ham sandwich ," he said. "The evidence in this case overwhelmingly confirms Lenny is innocent."Dykstra spent 12 seasons in MLB split between the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies. He earned three All-Star Game selections and won the 1986 World Series with the Mets.In May 2012, he received a three-year prison sentence for grand theft auto and filing a false financial statement. He was also sentenced to six-and-a-half months in prison for hiding items, including baseball memorabilia, that were supposed to become part of his bankruptcy filing.He was released from prison in June 2013.

The mad dash for MLB contenders to improve their respective rosters is on.Manny Machado's trade to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Brad Hand's move to the Cleveland Indians set the wheels in motion on the trade market , and now the teams that missed out on the two players will look elsewhere to improve ahead of the July 31 deadline.Most of the franchises at, or near, the top of each division are in the hunt for roster improvements, with relief pitchers and infielders the most coveted targets.Below is a look at a trio of teams searching for upgrades in order to be in contention for a playoff position in September.Philadelphia PhilliesThe Philadelphia Phillies are in quite the conundrum after failing to secure the services of Machado.Machado was the ideal fit for the Phillies because he would've erased their top weakness at shortstop.Although there are a handful of quality infielders available, some of them don't fit into the Phillies lineup as perfectly as Machado would have.A potential deal for Kansas City third baseman Mike Moustakas doesn't make sense because the Phillies have Maikel Franco at the hot corner, and going after a second baseman isn't ideal either with Cesar Hernandez locked into that spot on the diamond.If you eliminate second and third basemen from the Phillies' potential trade prospects, that leaves a thin shortstop crop to choose from. Minnesota's Eduardo Escobar could be an option, as Fancred's Jon Heyman noted:Jon Heyman JonHeymanAssuming phillies don鈥檛 land manny now, they鈥檒l still be targeting a SS, preferably one who鈥檚 a threat with bat. Eduardo Escobar could make sense. Most SS potentially on market r glove guys: Iglesias, alcides, Rojas Adeiny Hechavarria Jersey , old friend galvis, hechavarriaThe Phillies have more hope in the relief market. There are a handful of quality arms left, and the Baltimore Orioles'Zach Brittonis of interest, per Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan:Jeff Passan JeffPassanThe relief market is picking up, and while nothing is imminent, the A鈥檚 and Phillies are among the teams shopping, sources tell Yahoo Sports. Oakland is one of at least five teams in on Jeurys Familia, per sources. And the Phillies are taking a long look at closer Zach Britton.Britton would likely come at a steeper price than other relievers because he's the best available player at his position, but the 30-year-old would boost a young bullpen.The Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals are right on the Phillies' heels in the National League East, but they will likely be reluctant to give up a ton of minor league value at the deadline.Milwaukee BrewersCurrently three games back of the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central and in the mix for the NL wild card, the Milwaukee Brewers figure to be in the playoff race at the season's end.Milwaukee must improve in order to push Chicago in the division and stave off a collection of teams in the wild-card race, including Arizona Sergio Romo Jersey , San Francisco, Colorado, St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Washington.Just like the Phillies, the Brewers need to upgrade the middle of their infield, but they possess a little more positional flexibility and seem to be looking at second base and shortstop as areas to upgrade.One of the potential targets for the Brewers could be New York Mets second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera, per's Mark Feinsand:Mark Feinsand FeinsandFamilia not the only Mets player drawing interest; source says multiple teams have inquired about Asdrubal Cabrera, though no deal is imminent. Brewers and D-backs believed to be among potential suitors.The Brewers have been linked with Minnesota second baseman Brian Dozier as well, per The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal:Ken Rosenthal Ken_RosenthalAmong the players the #Brewers are expected to target now that they have lost Machado: #Twins 2B Brian Dozier. Team also will explore pitching upgrades as well.Although Cabrera and Dozier don't possess Machado's firepower at the plate, they might turn out to be better options in the long run.Cabrera and Dozier come at cheaper costs, and they would still be able to provide a similar impact in a lineup headlined by Jesus Aguilar and Christian Yelich.Cabrera is having the better season of two. He is hitting .282 with 17 home runs and 53 RBI, while Dozier has a .227 average to go with 16 home runs and 49 RBI.While Cabrera might be harder to pry away because of the Mets' high demands for their trade targets , he would be the ideal option given his better season at the plate and postseason experience from his time with the Indians, Nationals and Mets. New York YankeesThe New York Yankees have the bats to contend in the American League East and wild-card race, as seven players on their roster eclipsed the double-digit home run mark by the All-Star Game.However, the Yankees are in need of pitching help in order to compete with the Boston Red Sox for the division title and stay in front of the wild-card competition.The Yankees' starting rotation is led by AL Cy Young candidate Luis Severino, but they need to bolster the back part of the group.Bullpen reinforcements are also necessary, and if it wasn't for the high prices set by selling teams, the Yankees might have brought in a reliever already.SNY's Andy Martino reportedthat talks between the Yankees and Padres over Hand stalled after San Diego asked for third baseman Miguel Andujar in return.The same issues could hurt the Yankees in the chase for rotation arms as well, as potential deals for J.A. Happ or Cole Hamels could cost them a top prospect, as Martino noted.The Yankees are also in the hunt for Britton, along with many other contenders, per Heyman:Jon Heyman JonHeymanthere are many teams looking at Zach Britton. wouldnt surprise anyone if went right up until the deadline. cubs, Phillies , yankees, Red Sox, possibly Astros, dodgers, giants, others.The second-place team in the AL East has to improve its pitching staff, but at least for now, it sounds like it won't mortgage stars of the future to get a deal done.While the price tag for the best available players might be high at the moment, the demands from teams could go down as the deadline approaches as they look to offload assets before they decrease in value. Follow Joe on Twitter, JTansey90.Statistics obtained from Baseball Reference. PHOENIX (AP) Left-hander Jake Diekman went from one clubhouse to the other in Arizona after being dealt by the Texas Rangers to the Diamondbacks just before the non-waiver trade deadline Tuesday.Diekman struck out two while pitching the ninth inning for Texas in its win at Arizona on Monday night. Diekman was 1-1 with a 3.69 ERA in a team-high 47 appearances for the Rangers this season.Texas got right-hander Wei-Chieh (Way-Jay) Huang and a player to be named later from Diamondbacks. Huang was assigned to Double-A Frisco.Arizona designated left-hander Jorge De La Rosa for assignment.Diekman was the fourth pitcher traded by the Rangers in the past two weeks.

The New York Yankees aren't going to be forced to pay Major League Baseball's luxury tax for the first time ever.According to the Associated Press (h/t Kolten Wong Jersey , the Bronx Bombers are on pace to finish below the $197 million payroll threshold this season, meaning they won't have to pay the tax for the first time since it was instituted in 2003. They are still spending a significant amount of money with the luxury tax payroll up from $178.8 million at the start of the season to $192.1 million, but it is low enough to avoid the penalty.The AP noted the Boston Red Sox and Washington Nationals are the only teams on pace to pay the tax in 2018.The ability to avoid the luxury tax penalty also has implications for the upcoming offseason, as the report pointed out the Yankees and Los Angeles Dodgers will each reset their base tax rates from 50 percent of their total over the threshold to just 20 percent by avoiding it this year.That figures to put both big-market powers in ideal positions to add to their already talented rosters during free agency.New York's big splash this offseason was trading forGiancarloStanton to play alongside Aaron Judge, who has missed significant time with a fractured wrist. It is nine games behind the Boston Red Sox in the American League East but two games ahead of the Oakland Athletics for the first wild-card spot and a comfortable eight games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays.While the division is essentially out of reach at this point, the Yankees can at least take solace knowing they are headed to the playoffs and won't have to worry about paying the luxury tax.That, in turn, could lead to some marquee additions next offseason with less tax concerns and a threshold that is increasing to $206 million. OAKLAND Trevor Rosenthal Jersey , Calif. — The Los Angeles Angels will look to further endanger the Oakland Athletics‘ chances of making the playoffs when the teams meet Wednesday night for the second time in a three-game series.Caleb Cowart, pressed into action when regular second baseman David Fletcher was lost for the season Sunday with a hamstring injury, shocked the Oakland crowd with his first career grand slam Tuesday night, helping the Angels overcome an early three-run deficit en route to a 9-7 victory.The win was the fourth-place Angels’ eighth in 14 meetings with their California rivals this season.Article continues below ...The loss dropped the A’s (90-61) a game closer to Tampa Bay (84-66) with 12 games remaining in the Rays’ season. A lead that was 8 1/2 games after the A’s won at Tampa Bay on Friday night has suddenly shrunk to 5 1/2.Well after the Rays close out a series at Texas on Wednesday afternoon, Angels right-hander Felix Pena (3-4, 3.75 ERA) will match up with A’s lefty Brett Anderson (3-5, 4.35) for the second time in a little over a month.The Angels prevailed 4-3 in the Aug. 10 meeting, overcoming a shaky start by Pena , who allowed first-inning home runs to Matt Chapman and Khris Davis among his first 13 pitches.But the A’s went the final 8 2/3 innings without scoring again, and the Angels eventually overtook them on two-run homers by Kole Calhoun off Anderson and Justin Upton against Lou Trivino.It was Trivino who served up the grand slam to Cowart in the series opener.Pena was won his last two starts, including a six-inning scoreless effort against Texas last Wednesday in his most recent outing.He has faced the A’s twice in his career, once as a starter, with a 0-0 record and 5.40 ERA.Anderson is trying to pitch his way into the Oakland postseason rotation, if in fact the A’s qualify. He did not help his cause in his last start, when he lasted 3 1/3 innings in his first outing after missing time due to a forearm strain.He has gone 1-3 with a 3.75 ERA in 11 career meetings, including eight starts Carlos Martinez Jersey , with the Angels.Anderson has never gone head-to-head with Angels rookie Shohei Ohtani, who got on base three times via a single and two walks in Tuesday’s game.The left-handed-hitting Ohtani has made only 15 starts against left-handed pitchers this season, but he came through with a key single against A’s lefty reliever Ryan Buchter in the Angels’ six-run sixth inning in the series opener.He had been hitting only .205 against left-handers at the time of that at-bat.Mike Trout homered in the win, his 35th of the season.While he basically has no chance of catching the A’s Khris Davis (43) for the AL home run crown, Trout is shooting for his second 40-homer season.If he makes it, chances are he’ll have to do more damage against Oakland pitching. The Angels and A’s not only meet twice more in this series, but also close the regular season with a three-game set in Anaheim.

They gathered in their thousands at Whitten Oval, some nursing sore heads, most still shaking theirs in disbelief. Vans Old Skool Ireland .The party to end all parties rolled on into Sunday as the Western Bulldogs faithful celebrated winning their first AFL flag in 62 years.As the crowd awaited their premiership heroes, Dogs legend Doug Hawkins took the stage, not to speak but just to revel in the glory of it all.Wiping away tears, Hawkins took a selfie in front of the crowd, capturing a moment he thought may never come.But nothing compared to the rapturous ovation when the triumphant Bulldogs finally emerged with the premiership trophy, some looking worse for wear but all still smiling.Fittingly, for a side so focused on putting the team ahead of individuals, the biggest cheer of all was reserved for Joel Hamling, who went into Saturdays grand final as a relative unknown and towelled up Sydney superstar Lance Franklin.Star midfielder Marcus Bontempelli captured the feeling of disbelief still present at Whitten Oval.Its unbelievable for us to have achieved what he have, he said.This is going to be one of the most important times in our lives.The emotional moment where coach Luke Beveridge presented injured captain Bob Murphy with a premiership medal was replayed on the big screen to rapturous applause.And then it was over to Luke Dahlhaus to lead the team, and the crowd, through yet another rendition of Sons of the West.With an estimated crowd of more than 20,000 packed onto a sunny Whitten Oval, the conditions proved too much for some.At least two punters received medical assistance after collapsing while waiting for the premiership team to emerge.Bulldog president Peter Gordon addressed the crowd urging them to look after each other, admitting the club wasnt accustomed to hosting such massive crowds.Lets just take it easy today, he said.Weve got a problem here that weve never had before. Its a problem of our own making because we happened to win a premiership.Gordon, the man who famously reached into his own pockets to pull the Bulldogs back from the brink in the late 1980s, looked like hed celebrated as hard as the players.But he managed to find the words to thank the Bulldogs faithful, recalling what he told Beveridge during their embrace after their preliminary final over Greater Western Sydney.I said youve just got us into our first grand final since 1961 - you are frigging amazing, Gordon said.That man just led us to our first premiership in 62 years and hes contracted to us for the next five years at least. Vans Old Skool Ireland Sale . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. Vans Old Skool Ireland Online . -- Peyton Manning will have all of his wide receivers available for the first time in a month when the Denver Broncos begin their playoff run Jan. . Ancelotti says Ronaldo has recovered from a hamstring injury but "but he doesnt feel comfortable yet so we wont risk him." Madrid is third in the Spanish league, six points behind leader Barcelona, going into Saturdays game against Valladolid. ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions were well on their way to a blowout loss last week, digging themselves a 31-3 hole at Green Bay.Then Marvin Jones Jr. ripped off a 73-yard touchdown catch to give some momentum to Detroit.The Lions still lost, 34-27, but Jones impact on the team has been undeniable. He has given the offense and quarterback Matthew Stafford a legitimate downfield threat. Jones, in his first season with Detroit, has racked up 18 catches for 408 yards, averaging 22.7 yards per catch. Of Jones 18 catches, fully half of them have gone for more than 20 yards, and six have netted Detroit 30-plus yards.Im comfortable within the system, Jones said. I think with all of us, it was kind of automatic. We all grew in the system and early on, learned the system with each other.Jones was listed as limited in practice Thursday with a hamstring issue, but hes been healthy enough so far to lead the NFL with 136.0 receiving yards per game. No one else in the league has more than 325 receiving yards so far this season.Were throwing the ball underneath a lot, but can you get it down the field? offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter said. Marvin is able to make some plays down the field, and thats good for our offense. If youre an opposing defense looking at our offense, you know you have to be aware of all threats. Marvin went out and made some really big plays, Stafford made some nice throws, O line gave some nice protection. Its a positive development.In four seasons with the Bengals, Jones never aveeraged more than 14 yards per catch. Buy Vans Old Skool Ireland. His 73-yard score against the Packers last week was the longest catch of his career by 24 yards.Before this season, Jones had tallied just two games with more than 100 yards receiving. Hes already done that twice for the Lions, including a career-high 205 in Green Bay. Hes just the fifth Lion to ever surpass the 200-yard plateau.I feel like quite a few of (his catches) have, kind of, been toe-tapping right on the sideline, Stafford said. His body control is really good, obviously has good speed . and hes doing a good job of attacking the ball when its in the air. Were not going to throw a deep ball every play, but if theres opportunities for guys to go succeed at what theyre really good at, Im going to try and give them that opportunity.Game notes Lions cornerback Nevin Lawson was flagged for pass interference at the start of the second quarter against the Packers, resulting in a 66-yard penalty. Lawson said one of his coaches told him the league admitted the call was a mistake. He said he believes pass-interference calls should be reviewable and added: These refs have to be held accountable in some type of way. They should definitely have to get some type of consequences for making the wrong call, especially crucial calls that can decide wins or losses.---Online: AP NFL website: and ' ' '

At The International 6, Chinese Dota 2 team Wings Gaming did more than just win. Air Max Plus For Sale Cheap . They challenged some of our deepest assumptions about Dota 2, including how the game is meant to be played and what the limits of innovation truly are. Unconcerned about solving TI6s metagame, Wings forged their own path to conquering the championship, putting absolute faith in their own strategies, their own playstyle and their own understanding of the game. This unconventional path bears closer scrutiny to identify any lessons there may be for the Dota scene as a whole.Greater draft diversityThe teams unusual drafts have been the main talking point about them for most of the year, reviving interest in dozens of heroes thought to be stuck in particular roles or used only in particular situations. Keeper of the Light, Treant Protector, Venomancer, Troll Warlord, Centaur Warrunner, Pudge: the list goes on. In truth, youd be hard-pressed to find a hero Wings have not utilized at some point in the last six months.Indeed, central to the teams identity is a willingness to draft subversively, aggressively experimenting with tools that are available to all teams but sometimes overlooked. Some of their experiments have been total disasters, Iron Talon Alchemist among them. In fact, it is fairly common to see Wings try out a draft that turns out to be a total flop and loses them the game in under 20 minutes.But it doesnt stop them from innovating. Even when a Pudge draft led to their only TI6 main event loss, they still opted to give the hero another run in the first game of the grand final itself. Again, it didnt work. But the team got back up and won the next three games to clinch the trophy.This suggests very clearly that Wings know what theyre getting themselves into with their drafts. They know that by preparing so many different strategies they open themselves up to the possibility that some of them will be exposed as incomplete or ill-conceived. But by embracing this uncertainty, they turn a potential weakness into an important strength.If youve only been practicing one strategy and that strategy turns out to be faulty, then a fundamental part of your teams identity is on the line. But if youve prepared a plethora of strategies, youve empowered yourself to be honest and critical of any one of them after a loss. Accepting the fact that one particular strategy was misguided is a lot easier when its not the only one your team depends on.Assumptions, revisitedOf course, there are many creative minds in Dota 2 and many teams that regularly innovate. What is unique to Wings is not the fact that they innovate, but the extent to which they do it. The team appears to approach the draft as a blank canvas, or at least one substantially more blank than for other teams. They seem to treat assumptions about strategic norms with great suspicion. Wings understand that most of what we refer to as the metagame is just a collection of popular ideas, not rules about the game itself. And so they test things out, seeing which tactics are actually constrained by the game itself and which only appear to be.This approach to drafting is just one facet of what seems to be their overall approach to the game. Wings constrain their own thinking as little as possible. They operate with fewer heuristics and fewer shortcuts than other teams typically do. They challenge some of the most basic assumptions about skill builds, item builds, laning strategies, rotations, and counters. This is the team whose offlane Slardar has more than once killed an enemy support with Bash at level two; it is a team that occasionally leaves lanes entirely empty, or roams cores using Smoke in the first few minutes of the game.Crucially, in most of these cases, an unconventional decision leads to a desirable outcome. What looks like a strange Smoke gank ends with an important kill. What looks like an unusual laning decision pushes enemies into an awkward position. What looks like a bizarre item build (say, Batrider not rushing Blink, a trend started by Wings) subverts the expected timing windows of the game, creating time and space for the team. But being able to understand a particular deviation in hindsight is very different from being able to see a pattern, or predicting one of these unusual decisions.And the reason it is so difficult is because all of us -- players, analysts, fans -- have become attached to certain norms of thinking about Dota 2. Certain things counter other things. Certain things are more efficient than other things. A particular hero is best skilled a particular way. We need to learn these kinds of shortcuts because the game is extremely complex and there is simply too much to process in order to make each decision anew every time we encounter it.It is important to note that these kinds of norms do change, and professional players do challenge them. This is a big part of what fuels the evolution of the metagame. However, Wings appear to be the first team to have found a way to quite deliberately and consciously free themselves from as many heuristics as they can. As a result, they can take a wider range of actions given particular contexts and thus achieve more optimal outcomes a lot of the time. Certainly, they do follow rules of thumb like everyone else, but in a more flexible and intentional manner than other teams.Fearless Faith_bianOfflaner Zhang Faith_bian Ruida is a great example of the Wings approach in action. He shows extreme diversity in his skill and item builds and in how he spends his time during the early game; hell be laning, ganking or jungling depending on what the situation demands. But, more importantly, he has taken his role as an initiator one step further than any other player.More often than not, offlaners are expected to initiate fights because of the kinds of heroes they play. But initiation is often an extremely difficult challenge. Your team has decided to fight over a particular objective and you know that means you have to make a move. However, the enemy team is positioning well and you cant see a good opening. Perhaps you cant get onto the best target, or can only get onto one target when you would rather get two. Maybe youre concerned about a blind spot in your available vision. You know that if you initiate sub-optimally youre probably going to be the first one to die and cant be sure your team will do enough to justify that loss. But the longer you wait, the greater the chance that things start on the enemy teams terms. At a professional level, initiators regularly have to navigate these kinds of situations.Its a scary thing, being the initiator, but Faith_bian has entirely overcome this dilemma. He just goes in. Every single time. Even if his initiation is sub-optimal. Thus, his teammates can trust him to get something started, which gives them a situation to respond to. Of course, as with Wings experimental drafting, sometimes Faith_bians fearlessness backfires. Sometimes, hes charging into four heroes at a level one bounty rune and feeding aimlessly. But the overall approach pays off.Faith_bians mindset is completely invaluable to Wings because it means at any stage in the game they can decide to take a fight and be guaranteed that he will create some kind of opening for them, regardless of anything else. His in-game illustration that initiating is as much about setting up your teammates as it is about getting value out of your own spells, combined with his willingness to be whatever his team needs him to be, made him the most valuable player of TI6.The world will learnWings are not a team of superhumans that somehow transcend the metagame. Indeed, theyre far from the first team to revolutionize certain aspects of how we think about the game. But they are the first to make such a consistent and deliberate effort to free themselves from the usual heuristics. With all the world watching, it will not be long before others begin to learn and imitate this approach, which will likely add diversity and new perspective into Dota 2s strategic space. The lesson from Wings is not to avoid using necessary shortcuts in reasoning when solving extremely complex problems. Rather, we should strive to be aware of those shortcuts we do make use of and think about them critically instead of assuming they are correct. Nike Air Max Plus Sale Ireland .

MIAMI -- The Miami Marlins big win might have come with a price.Newly acquired Colin Rea left early with an elbow injury in his Miami debut in the Marlins 11-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night.We obviously needed the win, but its not at that cost, Marlins reliever David Phelps said. Hopefully, its nothing, but you never like to see a starter come out of the game when youre strapped for starters to begin with.Rea, acquired in a trade with San Diego, pitched 3 1/3 scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out four.I kind of felt something in my elbow and it gradually got worse throughout the game, Rea said. I dont know if I could have thrown another pitch, but well see. We dont know anything yet.Rea initially felt a pain in his arm during warm-ups before the game, but tried to pitch through it.This definitely isnt at a good time getting to a new team and you kind of feel like you let your teammates down a little bit, Rea said. Its tough, but I guess its just part of it.Phelps (5-5) relieved Rea and threw 2 2/3 scoreless innings, striking out four, to earn the victory.I knew what kind of shape we were in the bullpen and I didnt want to have guys throw that didnt need to throw so I was going to try to eat up as much as I could, Phelps said.Christian Yelich and Jeff Mathis each had three hits and drove in two runs to help lead the Marlins offensive attack.Marcell Ozuna hit a two-run home run and Martin Prado had a two-run double for the Marlins. They drew even with the Cardinals at 56-48 for the second NL wild-card spot.`O puts us up by four early and then we were able to add on, which is nice because they have a dangerous club that can put some runs on the board quick, Marlins manager Don Mattingly said. Weve seen that over the last couple of days.Miami outfielder Ichiro Suzuki remained at 2,998 hits, going 0 for 2 after entering as a defensive replacement in the sixth inning. Hes 2 for 16 on the homestand that concludes Sunday.Mattingly was not sure if Suzuki would be in the starting lineup on Sunday or if he would go with his regular starting outfield.I havent put a lineup out and havent really thought it too much, but our (regular) guys are swinging the bat good, Mattingly said.Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina extended his hitting streak to 14 games with a double in the fourth inning.

St. Louis starter Jaime Garcia (7-8) also only lasted 3 1/3 innings in his first career start on only three days rest. He allowed six runs and seven hits.I really didnt spend time thinking about (the short rest), Garcia said. No excuse. I didnt execute pitches the way I wanted to. I made mistakes in the middle of the plate against a really good lineup and paid the consequences.The Marlins scored four runs in the first, sparked by Ozunas two-run homer -- his 19th.Were down four runs in the first, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. I dont think overall ugliness is the proper description.Miami also plated four in the fourth keyed by a two-run double by Prado to push its lead to 8-0.

Speaking for the first time since being found guilty of ball-tampering on Tuesday evening, South Africas stand-in captain Faf du Plessis used the first half of his pre-match press conference to continue to claim innocence. Cheap Air Jordan 1 For Sale . Du Plessis began with an explanation of what he considered the difference between altering the condition of the ball and merely looking after it, and that he firmly believed he was only doing the latter.Yesterday was the hearing and the verdict was that I was guilty. I completely disagree with that. I felt like I have done nothing wrong, du Plessis said. Theres two ways of looking at it, either ball-shining or ball-tampering. For me, if you talk about ball-tampering, that is something thats wrong. Its picking the ball, scratching the ball.Shining is something that all cricketers would say is not in that same space. It is something all cricketers do and I think there will be a lot of emphasis after this incident on where the game is going, what the ICC is going to do about it. I dont believe shining is wrong. Its not like I was trying to cheat or anything. I was shining a ball and I see no problem with that.Du Plessis admitted he had a massive mint in his mouth and was not trying to be insidious about what he was doing in using saliva that had mixed with the sweet to shine the ball, but he questioned why he would have escaped charge had his actions not been seen by television cameras. I wasnt trying to actually hide it, he said. I put a massive mint in my mouth and my mouth was that wide open. Whether you shine the ball with a sweet in your mouth or whether you dont see the sweet, and the sweet is still there, its exactly the same thing.And according to du Plessis, he has received enough support from both current and former players, including Australian captain Steven Smith, who in his own press conference said his team along with every other, shine the ball the same way, to know that it is commonplace in the game.The ex-players have spoken about it. Its part of our game. Its been an unwritten rule, du Plessis said. Some people use sunblock to shine the ball. I know of people who carry lip-ice in their pocket and shine the cricket ball or gum. So many things. Its just so difficult to say what is right and what is wrong. To say that when you have a sweet in your mouth, its wrong but when you have a sweet in your mouth and the camera doesnt pick up on it, its okay. Its just a really massive grey area.The everybody-does-it defense made headlines in the lead-up to du Plessis hearing, when footage emerged of Virat Kohli shining a ball when he appeared to have gum in his mouth, and David Warner shining a ball after applying lip-balm to his mouth. Neither Kohli nor Warner were charged - the visuals of their actions emerged after the ICCs five-day window for reporting incidents - and although du Plessis would not be drawn on whether they should have been, he asked for consistent application of the rules. I just ask that everyone gets treated the same way, he said. The ICC has taken a stance against me to use me as a scapegoat. All you can ask for is that everyone gets treated the same.He also, along with Cricket South Africa CEO Haroon Lorgat, who was present at the press conference, hoped there would be clarity on what constitutes an artificial substance, and believes his case could lead to thorough research into whether sugar can make the ball swing.Ninety percent of the time, cricketers have got sugary saliva, du Plessis said. Whether we are drinking Powerade, Coke, Gatorade, eating sweets, sucking on jellies, our mouths are always full of sugar. Its such a grey area in the laws of cricket and its something that will be looked at. Us as cricketers, we think that it makes a difference but we are not scientists. We are not sure if it makes a difference. Its opened up a can of worms, whats going to happen now, going forward with the game. Something like this needed to happen to create a little bit more awareness on it.Lorgat confirmed that CSA will engage the ICC on the matter at the next cricket committee meeting but until then, du Plessis has asked not be branded underhanded and for the practice to be considered acceptable. Its never nice to be in a position like this because with ball tampering, its a really negative connotation that gets put to it and the term cheat has been thrown around and thats something I do not take lightly, he said.Its something I dont want to be associated with in any space and as I said, I felt I did nothing wrong. I was shining the cricket ball. Ive been doing that for my whole career and every single team I have played in does exactly the same thing and its not something thats frowned upon my anyone, not even the umpires. So to make such a big thing, I just think it was a little bit blown out of proportion by everyone.He has also thanked his team-mates for their united showing of support when Hashim Amla addressed the media at the MCG last Friday, with the entire squad alongside him. If you know the character of someone like Hashim Amla, you will understand that for him to go out and stand in front of the press and say the things that he said, he will feel very strongly about it. He is just the most honest guy on the planet so for him to say that means a lot, du Plessis said. Its speaks a lot about our culture and how we dont let any outside noise creep into our space.The noise may not have got in, but du Plessis has been warned to expect a hostile reception at the Adelaide Oval, perhaps from the opposition but definitely from the crowd. While he does not think Smith and co will have anything because he believes they do the same thing.I think the Aussies wont talk about it at all because they know thats part of their team as well. Its not been driven by the cricketers. You dont expect to go out there against Australia and walk out with a clap and welcome to the crease. Its part of playing against Australia, you expect that and thats something I have grown used to, he said, but challenged fans to understand his perspective. Im hoping that cricketing sense will be prevail. Its obviously something that if you are a cricketer and you understand cricket that this is not actually that big of a deal.With the ball in the spotlight, du Plessis tactics on shining the pink ball will come into focus but he has indicated it may not need as much work. The timing is perfect that its the pink ball. Apparently it swings more. It will be interesting to see how to shine the ball. I will probably just touch my finger like that and get a little bit of spit on it, he joked.And will he still use mints as the sugary substance of choice? Possibly just for bad breath now, not for shining the ball. I still the feel exactly the same way. Whether I was guilty or not, whether the sentence was different or not, I still feel exactly the same way. Maybe that needs to change now but possibly for this one game, I just maybe need to stay away from the mints. Buy Air Jordan 1 Canada .

TORONTO -- The Kansas City Royals record on the road has been unbecoming of a reigning World Series champion.After losing 6-2 to the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night, the Royals dropped to 16-28 on the road this season.Theyll try to begin reversing that trend in Tuesdays game against the Blue Jays, the second of a three-game series at the Rogers Centre.The difference in their home and away records is as glaring example as any of their inconsistency this season; at Kauffman Stadium, they are 27-11.Injuries have been part of the problem for the Royals. They entered their rematch of the 2015 American League Championship Series participants without such players as Lorenzo Cain (left hamstring strain) and Mike Moustakas (torn ACL).Of course, the Blue Jays have been without one of their key players in Jose Bautista (turf toe).Im not going to use injuries as an excuse, Royals manager Ned Yost said. Weve been inconsistent at times offensively. When we got our pitching and hitting together, thats when we have gone on runs. But then weve had inconsistency, too, with our starting pitching. Its a lot of things.The Royals will start right-hander Chris Young on Tuesday.Young has been consistent this season in that he has allowed at least one home run in each of his 12 starts, for a total of a major league leading 22. The club record is held by Runelvys Hernandez, who allowed homers in 13 straight starts Oct. 2, 2005-Aug. 10, 2006.The ball could be flying in Tuesdays contest.The Blue Jays will be starting knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, who has allowed 19 homers this season. Cheap Jordan 1 Canada. t is a rematch of the Game 4 starters in the ALCS. That one did not go well for Dickey. He allowed four hits (including two home runs), two walks, and five runs (four earned) in 1 2/3 innings. The Royals won 14-2.Young did not pitch far enough into that game to get the win. He allowed three hits, two walks and two runs in 4 2/3 innings.Young is 2-1 with a 4.98 ERA in four regular-season starts against the Blue Jays.Dickey is 4-3 with a 4.20 ERA in 14 regular-season games against the Royals, including four starts.Dickey could have redemption in mind when he faces the Royals, but both teams have underachieved in the first half of the season, so they will take any wins they can get to stay in contention.There was some nastiness between the teams last year in a four game series in which the Blue Jays took three games at Rogers Centre.Both managers have played down suggestions that this fuels a rivalry.The Blue Jays, however, are quite aware that the Royals kept them from a chance at the World Series.More than anything this is the defending World Series champs, Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar said. Naturally you want to elevate your game for that.This is the team that knocked us out of the postseason, took everything that we worked extremely hard for away from us. We had some altercations with them, some incidents with them so, yeah, its formed a little bit of a rivalry. ' ' '

Former Boston Celtics guard Evan Turner has agreed to a four-year, $70 million deal with the Portland Trail Blazers, his agent told ESPNs Jeff Goodman. Shoes Clearance Nz .Turner posted a message to Celtics fans on Instagram late Friday afternoon.?The deal cannot be officially signed until July 7, when a leaguewide moratorium on signings and trades is lifted.During two seasons in Boston, Turner averaged 10 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists over 27.8 minutes per game. Celtics coach Brad Stevens often leaned on Turners ballhandling abilities, especially during the 2014-15 season. Turner started 57 games that season, often running the offense while rookie Marcus Smart got his feet wet.Turner, 27, settled into a reserve role this past season (with Isaiah Thomas elevating to starting point guard) and finished fifth in NBA Sixth Man of the Year voting. Known for his ability to create off the dribble, especially pulling up from the midrange, Turner often poked fun at himself for shooting just 14.5 percent beyond the 3-point arc before the All-Star break. He then went out and shot 52.4 percent from long distance over the final two months of the season.Before rejuvenating his career in Boston, the 6-foot-7 Turner was continually referenced as the No. 2 pick in the 2010 draft. With the Celtics, Turner embraced his supporting role and endeared himself to his coach and teammates with his personality. Turner also cemented his reputation as one of the most quotable players in the league.Information from ESPNs Chris Forsberg was used in this report. Cheap Shoes Nz Online . Nathan MacKinnon, Jamie McGinn and Jan Hejda also scored for the Avalanche, who won despite being outshot 38-23. MacKinnons goal, also on the power play, came with just over a minute remaining. Shoes Nz Sale . But by the time the game started, the Toronto Raptors forward felt even worse. And, for three quarters, it showed as Gay shot a woeful three-for-13 from the field. .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. After four days of a fascinating contest, it took just 19 minutes to finish the Test and Bangladeshs chances at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. The atmosphere quickly fell flat and there was hardly a crowd in by the time Shafiul Islam was given out for the second time (confirmed on review), as had been the norm in this Test match.Those who had come into the ground hardly made any noise during the post-match presentation, but for the next 20 minutes, Mushfiqur Rahim tried his best to lift the gloomy mood brought on by a 22-run loss, focusing in particular on performances by the debutants, Mehedi Hasan and Sabbir Rahman, and senior figures Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan.Mushfiqur said that the result had become less important after the way his team fought all the way till the end, and gave a fine account of their character throughout the five days. He said that consistency is what Bangladesh crave in Test cricket, and this Test was a great example of what they can achiever if a number of players perform together.Sometimes you have a distinctive feeling after losing a game, Mushfiqur said. We tried what we could. Nobody expected Bangladesh to play in this manner after 15 months so we had to prove that we could do something. We could show our character to a side like England. They have a lot of experienced players. I wouldnt use the word frustrating but I would call it a learning experience.The biggest achievement would be to play consistently for the whole Test match. I think we have done that 90-95 percent of the time but we could have done better in some areas. We can take a lot of positives - Mehedi and Shakib bowled well. Tamim batted well, and it wasnt in his character to bat like he did. Sabbir batted well too. It was a good Test for Bangladesh.There remained some questions about how the game panned out, particularly Sabbir giving Taijul Islam the strike on the final day. Mushfiqur said that it was the managements decision to take the singles, which would take the pressure off Sabbir from doing all the scoring. He lamented that Bangladesh were not equipped with tailenders capaable of holding their own, unlike the England side, which boasted 11 batsmen with at least one first-class century. Nz Shoes Sale Online. .Sabbir wouldnt have been able to do all the scoring and it wasnt that Taijul was really bad, Mushfiqur said. If it was the last wicket, it would have been different. They had pace from both ends, understandably, so Sabbir couldnt have taken too much risk. Taijul started well today so we took the decision that they should take a single when it is available.Thirty-runs and two wickets is a difficult equation. The match was tilted towards them almost 90 percent. We dont have any tailender who has a first-class hundred, and even if they did, theres a huge difference between those scored in county cricket and in our first-class structure. If we would have won, we wouldnt become an extraordinary Test side. But we ended up achieving much of what we had set ourselves.The margin of defeat was less than the deficit Bangladesh gave away in the first innings, their collapse of 5 for 27 on the third morning sparked by Shakibs unnecessary charge that resulted in a stumping. Mushfiqur suggested that, had Bangladesh taken a first-innings lead, the Test could have taken a different path.Those runs build a huge difference, he said. We replied with five early wickets in their second innings and then Stokes put up that big partnership but I still think that had we gone close to their 290, the Test match could have taken a different path. It did matter in the end.Mushfiqur added that they expected better from Shakib. I think he realises that he didnt do the right thing, Mushfiqur said. We didnt expect this from such a mature player. We want him to have more impact for the team.The Bangladesh captains words were soothing, especially after such a heartbreaking finish for the home side. For all the running that Bangladesh have done in their first Test after almost 15 months, Mushfiqur has certainly taken a long-awaited upward step in his Test captaincy. ' ' '

West Brom have joined forces with Delhi Dynamos in a first-of-its-kind partnership between a Premier League club and an Indian Super League League side. Nike Sb Shoes For Sale Nz . The clubs will work in collaboration with the UK Trade and Industry, the New Delhi government and the University of Wolverhampton on a grassroots initiative taking football to children at more than 2,000 schools in the wider Delhi region. A select group of students from the university will join West Brom coaches in travelling to India where they will also help build the technical expertise of local coaches. The initiative feeds into Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modis vision to take football to every village in the country as India gears up towards hosting next years FIFA U17 World Cup.

After all, it was evident on the field.Austin Appleby threw two touchdown passes, Jordan Scarlett ran for a career-high 134 yards and the Gators used another solid defensive effort to beat the Gamecocks 20-7 Saturday, moving closer to clinching the Southeastern Conferences Eastern Division.I just said, No. 1, that there were some great defensive players here, McElwain said. He just did an outstanding job.The banged-up Gators (7-2, 5-2; No. 22 AP) can secure a spot in the league title game by winning at 24th-ranked LSU next week. It might be a long shot given Floridas injury situation.McElwain lost nine starters the last two weeks, including four against the Gamecocks (5-5, 3-5). Safety Marcus Maye (arm) is out for the season, and its uncertain whether defensive end Bryan Cox Jr. (ankle), center Tyler Jordan (ankle) and left tackle David Sharpe (leg) will be ready to play against the Tigers.Youve got guys dropping left and right and new guys going in there, McElwain said. I think we sold some extra programs because (fans) didnt know the numbers that were in there. Our new athletic director will be excited about that. Itll help the budget.Florida did just enough to overcome the injuries.Appleby found Cyontai Lewis for a 6-yard score in the first quarter and then floated a perfect pass to Ahmad Fulwood in the corner of the end zone in the second. Eddy Pineiros two field goals in the third, including a 54-yarder, gave the Gators some breathing room.Floridas defense did the rest, allowing just 256 yards while rebounding nicely from a 31-10 loss at Arkansas last week. Most of the players shutting down South Carolina were guys Muschamp signed during his four years (2011-14) in Gainesville.Its about the people, he said. Its not about the logo. Its not about the buildings. Its relationships you build with people over a period of time. A lot of people that still work here at Florida that Im very close with and always will be. As we move forward there will be less players involved, which is probably the better part for me because thats what I really care about.Many thought Floridas former coach would pull off an upset in his return to Gainesville. Instead, the Gamecocks were shut out until scoring with 6:53 left. The loss snapped South Carolinas three-game winning streak.Freshman quarterback Jake Bentley, who played so well in those victories, struggled in his first road start. Bentley completed 18 of 33 passes for 213 yards, with an interception and a fumble.Appleby was slightly more efficient. The former Purdue starter, filling in for injured Luke Del Rio, was 17-of-21 passing for 201 yards. He threw an interception in the third quarter and fumbled a snap, committing two of the teams three turnovers.We could have had 40 points out there if we played the way we are capable of, Appleby said. We will get it fixed.THE TAKEAWAYSouth Carolina: Although the Gamecocks didnt have much offensive success, its clear Muschamp has some young players to build around. Bentley, running back Rico Dowdle and receiver Bryan Edwards -- all freshmen -- should be a solid nucleus for the next few years.Florida: The Gators have endured their share of injures the last two weeks, losing five defensive starters and four on the offensive side of the ball. Some of them wont be back for next weeks all-important game at LSU, leaving Florida to test its depth on the road.POLL IMPLICATIONSFlorida probably will move up a few spots in the next AP poll, but all that matters now is beating the Tigers and getting back to Atlanta.We know whats at stake, Appleby said. We want to go back to Atlanta, and this is the next step in order to get there. Weve got a lot of guys dinged up. With that said, the next mans up.UP NEXTSouth Carolina: After playing five consecutive games at Williams-Brice Stadium before traveling to Florida, the Gamecocks return home to face Western Carolina next Saturday. South Carolina should become bowl-eligible against the Catamounts, a team from the Football Championship Subdivision.Florida: Plays at LSU next Saturday, a game postponed because of Hurricane Matthew in and later moved from Gainesville to Baton Rouge. The Gators were initially slated to host Presbyterian that day. Adidas Nz Sale .

NYON, Switzerland -- Fenerbahce has lost its appeal to UEFA against expulsion from this seasons Champions League for match-fixing, and the Turkish club can now ask sports highest court for an emergency ruling. Nike Free Nz Sale . Announcing verdicts Monday, UEFA said its appeals panel upheld an earlier disciplinary verdict that club officials helped fix matches in its 2010-11 league title run. Fenerbahce finished runner-up in the Turkish Super Lig last season and would have entered the Champions League third qualifying round, needing to beat two opponents to advance to the lucrative group stage. The draw is scheduled for Friday and Bursaspor should now take the second Turkish entry. Champion Galatasaray goes directly into the 32-team group stage being drawn next month. Fenerbahce, which was also expelled from the Champions League two years ago, can challenge UEFAs verdict at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Club officials, including president Aziz Yildirim, deny wrongdoing and are appealing their criminal convictions in Turkish courts. With Fenerbahce banned, third-placd Beziktas could have taken its Istanbul rivals vacant Champions League place. However, UEFA has also dismissed Beziktass appeal against suspension for fixing the 2011 Turkish Cup final, leaving the entry clear for fourth-place Bursaspor. Besiktas could also appeal to CAS. Fenerbahce also remains banned for an additional year of UEFAs club competitions when it next qualifies. UEFA said Fenerbahces appeal was partially admitted because a deferred suspension for a third season was annulled following the hearing held last Wednesday. UEFA took several days to confirm the judgments.

SAO PAULO -- Lewis Hamilton won Sundays rain-delayed Brazil Grand Prix at Interlagos, and Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg again settled for second. Vans Shoes Sale New Zealand . Its the third straight race that Rosberg has been the runner-up behind Hamilton.Is Rosberg frustrated? Not likely.If he finishes second again to Hamilton in the season finale on Nov. 27 in Abu Dhabi -- or even third -it will be enough to bring him his first drivers title.I can live with second today, Rosberg said, ceding the stage again to the Englishman, whose victory was his first in Brazil after failing in nine other attempts. I was hoping for the win, but second is OK.The German, whose father Keke Rosberg won the title 34 years ago, still leads the overall season standings with 367 points to 355 for Hamilton.Drivers get 25 points for a victory, 18 for second, 15 for third, and 12 for fourth. The awards go all the way to 1 point for 10th place.Sundays race was stopped twice by crashes in driving rain during the first 28 of 71 laps. All but a half-dozen of the early laps were run behind a safety car with drivers struggling to see through tire spray and struggling to avoid hydroplaning in standing water.The second half was less eventful, but still was slowed by another crash and another spell under the safety car.Hamilton, the three-time series champion, said it looked tougher than it actually was.This was one of the easier ones, he said of his victory.Hamilton said he was in the zone for the entire race, despite the stops and starts.I was chilling up front, Hamilton said. When it rains, its usually a good day for me.Im hunting, he added. All I can do is what Im doing now. Abu Dhabi is usually a good track for me.The victory was the 52nd of Hamiltons career, pushing him to No. 2 ahead of Alain Prost with 51. Michael Schumacher leads with 91.The race was run behind a safety car for the first seven laps with raining pounding down and drivers trying to navigate through spray and puddles.It didnt take long for problems to arise as soon as the safety car pulled off.On the 13th lap Marcus Ericsson of Sauber went into a spin and crashed, forcing the safety car to come out again.The safety car stayed on until the 20th lap. But just seconds after it pulled off and racing resumed, Kimi Raikkonen of Ferrari lost control in a spin. This time the race was stopped under a red flag.Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel, talking on his radio, said conditions were too dangerous. He suggested the crashes could have been worse under the treacherous conditions.We need to stop the race, he said. It doesnt work. How many people do you want to crash?Hamilton led through the first 20 laps, followed by Rosberg, Max Verstappen of Red Bull, which was the final finish.The race resumed after a 30-minute delay. But again it didnt last long. After eight laps, officials stopped the race under a red flag, seeming to anger Hamilton.Its not even that wet now, he said on the radio, adding these were normal wet conditions.Brazilian fans seemed to agree, with thousands in the stands giving the thumbs-down sign as the race was stopped again.The race resumed after another 20-minute stoppage, which Rosberg said he filled by eating some spaghetti.Compared to the first third, the second two-thirds was tense but smoother as the rain kept coming.The safety car appeared for the final time on the 48th lap in a crash by hometown hero Felipe Massa.Massa, who is leaving F1 at the end of the season, walked off the track with a Brazilian flag wrapped around his shoulders in his final race at home.Im leaving with my head up and my heart aching, Massa said afterward in the paddock, in tears and embraced by wife Anna Raffaela and young son Felipinho.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: . His work can be found at Vans Shoes Clearance Nz . -- Most satisfying to Russ Smith about No. Buy Cheap Vans Shoes Nz . In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves. . -- In one brief spurt, Brazil turned a close game into a rout and proved again it will be a strong World Cup favourite. Two certainties about this season:The?Florida Panthers Jaromir Jagr will continue to defy age and score goals.The Calder Trophy race between the early front-runners -- Patrik Laine of the Winnipeg Jets and Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs -- will rage on for the entire season if both rookies remain healthy.The start of the regular season has revealed unlikely developments, including the?San Jose Sharks Brent Burns?vying for the league lead?in scoring. Between the pipes, Montreal Canadiens backup Al Montoya is second among all goaltenders with a .962 save percentage, and?Edmonton Oilers goalie?Cam Talbot has five wins.Theres plenty of hockey left to be played, and the faces of those statistical categories will change soon. But here are five early predictions that will hold up:Carey Price will lead the Canadiens back to the postseason. He suffered a season-ending knee injury last November, but Montreals No. 1 netminder returned to health and led Team Canada to a World Cup of Hockey championship last month in Toronto. Once the regular season began, however, he was sidelined again with what was diagnosed as a severe case of the flu. He missed the first three games and the Canadiens went 2-0-1 with Montoya in net.Price made his season debut Thursday and posted a 27-save performance to help Montreal win 5-2 over the Arizona Coyotes?at Bell Centre. If Price can stay healthy, the Canadiens could compete for the top spot in the Atlantic Division. Montoya has been solid, but it says here that Price will have a productive season and lead his team into the Stanley Cup playoffs in the spring.The?Tampa Bay Lightning?are not in trouble. Its too early to claim a team is inconsistent, but after starting 3-0-0, the Lightning were ravaged in a 4-0 loss to the Colorado Avalanche (3-1-0) on Thursday at home. That loss will serve as the early-season wakeup call the Lightning need. The Avalanche look like a team that will contend for a playoff spot in the Central Division, but Tampa, the team many experts predicted would win the Stanley Cup in 2017, should not be shut out by Colorado.Expect the Lightning to enjoy more consistent play, and they will be rewarded with reaching the century mark in points after finishing with?97 in 2015-16.The Ducks will heat up, the Canucks will cool off. The Anaheim Duccks are 1-3-1 in the first five games, which is a little bit concerning since they won the Pacific Division last season with 103 points. Vans Outlet Store Nz. Take a deep breath and recall how the Ducks began the 2015-16 season: losing nine of 10 before turning it around. The Ducks are too good to falter much longer. Plus, the teams first five games were on the road.The Ducks opened at home on Sunday against the Vancouver Canucks, who happen to be 4-0-0. This category is twofold: The Ducks will start winning games consistently, and the Canucks will cool off. After all, the addition of forward Loui Eriksson is a massive help for the Canucks, but Vancouver cant sustain this type of success for the entire season, right? Maybe the Canucks will prove everyone wrong.Brad Marchand will score 40 or more for the Bruins. The ink on his new eight-year, $49 million contract extension with the Boston Bruins isnt even dry yet, but the top-line winger has carried his World Cup of Hockey momentum into the regular season.After his short-handed goal with 43.1 seconds remaining in regulation led Team Canada to a 2-1 championship victory over Team Europe last month at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Marchand leads the league with three goals and six assists for nine points in five games. Even though he has a fat new deal, hes not the type of player to relax and go through the motions. He scored 38 goals last season and you can bet hell surpass that mark this season.The Oilers will keep scoring, as will the Senators (sort of). In the early going, Edmonton was tied for the NHL in team scoring, with 23 goals in six games. With a strong pool of talent, led by captain Connor McDavid, the Oilers should remain near the top of that category for the remainder of the regular season.The Ottawa Senators?have?18 goals each in five games. They are starting to cool off, but will likely still finish in the top 10 in the league in scoring thanks to the offensive production from defenseman Erik Karlsson, who already has two goals and five assists for seven points in five games.The Senators have missed the playoffs twice in the past three seasons, but they will compete for a postseason berth this spring.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Nike Air Max Nz Sale . -- Nearly 1,000 career receptions and being ranked in the top 10 of the NFLs all-time receiving yardage list cuts no weight with Jacksonville Jaguars rookie cornerback Jalen Ramsey.Ramsey, the No. 5 pick of the 2016 NFL draft, and Ravens wide receiver?Steve Smith?got into an exchange on the field after Baltimores 19-17 victory on Sunday and had to be separated. Ramsey said he thinks Smith was upset because of the way Ramsey was covering him -- and said he has no respect for the 37-year-old wide receiver.Yall tell me who got in whose head, Ramsey said. He came up to me after the game, you feel me? Yall tell me who got in whose head. Hes an old man acting like that.Aint nobody worried about him. He came up to me, you know what Im saying, on some disrespectful stuff. The games over with. You still mad cause I was locking you up? All right, go sleep on that. I aint trying to hear that after the game.Smith caught eight passes for 87 yards. He had four of those catches in the fourth quarter, including a 5-yarder to convert a fourth-and-2 on the Ravens game-winning drive.The impetus of the postgame exchange came with little more than three minutes to play, when Ramsey and Smith were penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct stemming from an altercation after Jaguars linebacker Paul Posluszny intercepted Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.It is what it is, Ramsey said. As a player, hes still a good player. Ill say that about him. But I dont respect him as a man.Smith fired back at Ramsey in two tweets posted later Sunday evening, proclaiming, I got cleats with stronger thread [than] you!!!On Monday morning, Smith appeared on ESPNs Mike and Mike and said he will follow Ramsey after he retires at the end of the season.Guess what, 16 years, Im done playing football and (will) sit behind a mic, Smith said. The eye in the sky doesnt lie. Im going to have a lot of Sundays to evaluate a lot of players. He will be a player I will be wearing my glasses with so I dont miss anything. Nike Air Max Online Nz .

Air Max Outlet Nz . LOUIS -- St. .In my heart and mind Im competing for India, luge competitor Shiva Keshavan told The Associated Press in an email interview. Every day Im flooded with messages from Indians all over the world telling me they are supporting me. When the final penalty kick left the right foot of Brazil forward Neymar on Saturday night, swimmer Yusra Mardini clutched her older sister Sarahs hand. In the moment, Yusra was torn. Since she was a young girl growing up in the Syrian capital of Damascus, she has been a fan of Spanish football club FC Barcelona, which Neymar joined in 2013. She calls him her idol and says he, along with her other idols Michael Phelps and Usain Bolt, made her believe she, too, could one day become an Olympian.But tonight, she said, I am cheering for Germany. Germany, now, is my home.One year ago on this day, Mardini, 18, and her sister became heroes to 18 people and symbols of hope to refugees around the world. Since being named to the 2016 Refugee Olympic Team, a first-of-its-kind team comprised of 10 refugees from four nations who competed at the Rio Summer Games under the Olympic flag, Mardinis story has garnered international attention. In Rio, she met swimmers Missy Franklin and Conor Dwyer and was overcome with emotion the first time she dove into the Olympic pool and realized she was swimming in the same water as Phelps.My life has changed completely, said Yusra, who competed in the 100-meter freestyle and 100-meter butterfly. It is incredible.No. It is unbelievable, Sarah corrected. One year ago today, we were in the boat. She looks down at her white iPhone, then picks it up and lights up its display. Yusra, look what time it is: 8:16 p.m. One year ago at this time, we are still in the water.The Mardini sisters story is as improbable and inspiring as any to come out of these Games, yet one that likely would never have been told if not for Yusra being identified as a candidate for the Refugee Team. After the war in Syria destroyed their familys home and the swimming facility where they trained, their parents agreed to allow Yusra and Sarah to flee the war-torn nation with two of their fathers cousins and a friend.They flew to Istanbul, Turkey, took a bus to Izmir with a group of about 30 refugees and smugglers and waited for four days before boarding a dinghy with 18 other refugees, including a 6-year-old boy, bound for the Greek island of Lesvos.On their first attempt at the crossing, they were stopped by border agents and turned around. On their second trip, the engine on their dinghy broke and the boat began to take on water. It was dark, the waters choppy and only the Mardinis and two men on board the boat knew how to swim.In the beginning, Sarah told me, Dont help anyone. Just go. Swim with me. If we drown, we drown, Yusra said. But then she was the first one who got out of the boat to push.For three-and-a-half hours, the sisters swam, fighting the current and the weight of their clothing, pulling and pushing the boat to help it remain on course. The two men also jumped into the water to help and took turns pushing the boat, but they eventually gave up, too exhausted to continue.They couldnt handle as much because they are normal people, Yusra said. We can handle more because we are sports people. At first, no one wanted us to jump in the water because we are girls. When we get in the water, the guys from Somalia were like, My god, you are brave. I was like, Shut up now. Please shut up. Dont tell mme Im courageous. Nike Air Max Nz Wholesale. . When we arrive safely, then say whatever you want.Throughout the swim, the Mardinis said there were times they werent sure theyd made the right choice to leave Syria, when they didnt believe they would make it to Lesvos alive.We missed home, Sarah said. You think, I dont want this trip. You are in the middle of the sea. No one is hearing you and no one is helping you. So you keep going.Around 10 oclock that night, the group arrived on the shores of Lesvos, safe but staring down months of grueling travel on foot and by bus. The Mardinis eventually arrived in a refugee camp in Berlin, where an Egyptian interpreter connected them with a swim coach who agreed to train the girls who had saved a boatload of people. It had been months since that night in the Mediterranean Sea, and the sisters wanted nothing more than to return to the water and to once again train in the sport they loved.In the water that night, I thought it would be a shame if we die in the water and we are swimmers, Yusra said.No, Sarah corrected. That it would be a shame to let the people with us die and we are swimmers. We didnt care about ourselves.For both sisters, swimming has been their passion and competing in the Olympics a childhood dream. Now that Yusra is an Olympian, they say their work has only begun. On Monday, Sarah, who speaks multiple Arabic dialects and English, will return to Greece, where she is volunteering to greet refugees upon their arrival and provide them with food, water and guidance. She has also started her own human rights organization in Berlin, which she named RTR, for Refugee to Refugee.I hurt my shoulder that night in the water, so for months I could not train with my sister, Sarah said. I decided to do something with my mind. Now I am a human rights activist. I want to give something back to others like me and my sister, not just from Syria but from all over the world. We have our papers and our family in Berlin. We have everything, so I want to give back to the others. I will be the wall they will rest on.Yusra, too, wants to help refugees, and she wants to become an activist who fights for the right for girls to participate in sports. She says already, she has received many emails and Twitter messages from women and young girls from around the world who say theyve been inspired by her story, and she makes a point to respond to every message.In Syria, the girl who does sport, she is called a whore by people, Yusra said. This is how closed their minds are in how they think. We fought all the time to swim. But we were lucky. We came from a good family. My mom and dad, they support us. But now we are still fighting and doing our best to rise women up in any way we can.One year ago, it would have been impossible for Yusra and Sarah to imagine their lives today, to believe they would be watching the final football game of the Rio Olympics from white leather chairs at a party thrown by Visa, Yusras Olympic sponsor, at an opulent hotel overlooking Copacabana Beach.One year ago, it was difficult for the Mardini sisters to imagine a future at all.

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Test rookies Valentine Holmes, Shannon Boyd and Tyson Frizell will bring a new energetic edge to the Kangaroos, coach Mal Meninga says.Holmes, Boyd and Frizell on Friday were named to make their Australian debuts in Saturdays international against New Zealand at Perths nib Stadium.The selections continue a transformation of the Australian team under Meninga after his choice of four debutants in May for his first Test in charge of the Kangaroos.Shannon, Tyson and Valentine have all added a new dimension to our team with their enthusiasm and excitement, Meninga said on Friday.We have a big Kiwis pack, we will be out to match that and big Boydy is a big part of that.Tyson Frizell had a great year, he had an outstanding State of Origin series, played well in the Prime Ministers game and deserves his opportunity - while Valentine had a great year for Cronulla.Meninga said the rookies were excited and shocked by their call-up particularly St George Illawarra star Frizell.Tyson couldnt get any words out. He was smiling from ear to ear.It is an exciting time for them. They are playing with some exceptionally talented players. They will be nervous. They have to make that first run, that first tackle and it is just a game oof footy. Under Armour Stores Ireland.
