[Bearbeiten] With starting job in NFL, Terrelle Pryor doesn’t look back

OAKLAND, Calif. A crowd inched close to Terrelle Pryor s locker as he leaned over and laced up his Nikes, the bright red high-tops clashing with his all-black outfit.

O-H, an elderly stranger yelled at the Oakland Raiders quarterback.
I-O, replied Pryor,Nike Colts T-Shirts, head bowed.

The former Ohio State star looked exhausted and sounded subdued after his first victory as an NFL starting quarterback. A Band-Aid covered Pryor s right hand, which bled throughout Oakland s 19-9 win yesterday over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Such wounds are life in the NFL, which Pryor is embracing in his third season. His job is too demanding to spend time looking back on how his collegiate career ended prematurely because of his role in the tattoo scandal that landed OSU on NCAA probation and cost former coach Jim Tressel his job.

That s my school, but they don t really accept me, Pryor said. I ve moved on to what I have now, and that s just football. 

Still, he took interest in the Buckeyes on Saturday night when they beat California in nearby Berkeley. Pryor watched most of the first half on TV at his home, but missed the rest of that game because of team meetings. Even if he had time to attend the OSU-Cal game, Pryor couldn t have accepted free tickets from OSU players, coaches or alumni. That stipulation is part of a five-year ban the university placed on him in 2011 stemming from the scandal.

Those guys kicked me out of school after all those things I did for them, Pryor said.

The indignation in his voice spurred a Raiders official to step in and cut off a question from a Dispatch reporter.

Guy, we re not going to talk about Ohio State right now, said the Oakland official, sending Pryor out the locker-room door.

Raiders fans are doing a lot of talking about Pryor. They ve embraced him as a favorite son, which is no surprise considering that the franchise has long cast itself as a place where misfits land to re-invent themselves.

Ohio State fans know Pryor for production, not potential. He led the Buckeyes to three Big Ten titles, three wins over Michigan and wins in Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl games in which he was named MVP both times. He went 31-4 as a starter and set school records for touchdown passes (57) and rushing yards by a quarterback (2,164). Those achievements ended up buried in scandalous rubble, but iconoclastic Raiders owner Al Davis selected Pryor in the third round of the 2011 supplemental draft. It was his last pick. Davis died two months later. The NFL suspended Pryor for the first five games of his pro career for what commissioner Roger Goodell said was deliberate manipulation of our eligibility rules. He was Oakland s third-string QB most of his first two years, except for one start in the 2012 finale. Pryor began this preseason as a backup to Matt Flynn, who the Raiders acquired in an offseason trade with Seattle, before earning the starting job. Oakland coaches have been impressed with Pryor s attitude, work ethic and improved decision-making and passing accuracy.

Every play that he plays, every snap he takes,Cheap Indianapolis Colts Hats, is a learning experience for him, Raiders coach Dennis Allen said.

Pryor played well in a 21-17 loss at Indianapolis in the season-opener. He completed 19 of 29 passes for 217 yards with a TD and two interceptions and set an Oakland franchise record for rushing by a quarterback with 112 yards on 13 carries. His statistics were more pedestrian yesterday. Pryor passed for 126 yards, completing 15 of 24 without a score or interception. He ran nine times for 50 yards as Oakland conservatively chewed up Jacksonville with 226 rushing yards.

I did my job and we got a W , Pryor said. I m very happy about it. 

Later, after addressing the media at his locker, Pryor spoke briefly with a Dispatch reporter as he ambled through a hallway in the bowels of O.co Coliseum.

I m not really worried about Ohio State right now, Pryor said. That s not my job. 

Is he bitter?

Not at all, Pryor said. I m a God-fearing man,Cheap Nike Indianapolis Colts Jersey, and I know God has got my back. I hope (the Buckeyes) win the championship. 

Then he stepped outside into the evening sunshine, only the future ahead. [email protected] @Todd_Jones

[Bearbeiten] Mortgage Refinance Options Before Retirement

My wife and I plan on retiring in 18 months. Our combined incomes are about $140,000 annually.

Our current mortgage principal and interest payment is $1,230 per month on a 15-year fixed-rate mortgage at 4.25%. We won't be able to pay off the mortgage in fewer than 10 years. We don't have a clear plan on downsizing our home, but that's at least five years away.

Would it make sense to refinance to a 30-year mortgage, which reduces the principal and interest payment to about $700 a month? It certainly would free up cash in our monthly budget.

Best regards,

-Don Dilemma

Dear Don,

I think refinancing to a longer-term mortgage is a bad idea for you, at least. But, if you are going to do it, you should get to it while you are still working. Refinancing in retirement is tough. It will be easier to get the mortgage approved with the income you have now.

Let's assume you do downsize five years from now and that means you pay off the mortgage. By my calculations, you'd wind up spending an extra $6,000 in pretax interest expense over the next five years by refinancing into a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage.

[Bearbeiten] Examining Parker, Gasol and rest of NBA pack at 2013 EuroBas

By

Tony Parker and Nicolas Batum helped guide France to gold at 2013 EuroBasket. (Petr David Josek/AP)

France defeated Lithuania on Sunday in the EuroBasket final in Slovenia, winning its first basketball gold medal at a major international tournament.

The French were considered one of the favorites entering the tournament, in large part because their roster was stocked with NBA talent, led by Tony Parker. But their triumph over longtime rival Spain in the semifinals on Friday was a surprise:?Spain had won gold at the previous two EuroBaskets and boasted an NBA-loaded roster of its own, highlighted by Marc Gasol and Ricky Rubio. The Spanish crumbled during the fourth quarter and overtime of the semifinal, which served as a de facto championship game. France went on to comfortably handle Lithuania 80-66, while Spain blew out Croatia 92-66 to take bronze.

While France and Spain dominated the tournament from a pure talent perspective, both teams were tested by the 24-team field. Neither entered the final stage of the tournament atop its group and both suffered multiple losses in the preliminary rounds. Eventually,Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale, though, the cream rose to the top. Here s a rundown of how 10 NBA players most of them French and Spanish fared for their national teams in Slovenia.

Tony Parker, France (Spurs): Last week, Parker placed , and he was the highest-ranked international player on the list. He did everything to justify that ranking while in Slovenia, capturing EuroBasket MVP honors while scoring a tournament-best 19 points per game and dishing 3.3 assists. There were some shaky moments: Down the stretch against Spain, Parker forced a number of plays and turned over the ball in crucial situations. On the whole, though, his elite ability to break down a defense off the dribble is just too much for this level of competition. Parker shot 56.9 percent on two-point field goals for the tournament,Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale, and he did plenty of that damage around the basket area. One number was particularly telling: Parker drew 5.3 fouls per game. Hey, if you can t stop him, hack him.


It should be noted that France had three players average double figures (Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw joined Parker) and two more who averaged more than seven points (Alexis Ajinca and Mickael Gelabale). That scoring balance helped carry France through some rough patches. Batum stepped up in the first half against Lithuania and Diaw was a rock, especially during the second and third rounds of the tournament. Still, there were plenty of times when Parker was a one-man show. He scored 28 against Ukraine,[9] [10] [11] [12] http://www.astxt.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=1122560"> [http://www.astxt.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=1122560 a> http://www.astxt.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=1122560">4.12 ] , 27 against Slovenia in the quarterfinals and 32 against Spain in the semis. For much of that last game, Parker was outscoring all of his teammates combined. Any health issues from the 2013 playoffs looked to be a thing of the past.

This first gold medal for France is a crowning achievement for Parker, whose international career dates to 1997,Bolts working to instill family atmosphere Bolts working to instill family atmosphere Bolts working to instill family atmosphere Bolts working to instill family atmosphere Bolts working to instill family atmosphere Bolts working to instill family atmosphere Bolts working to instill family atmosphere Bolts working to instill family atmosphere Bolts working to instill family atmosphere http://forum.dldaylight.info/viewthread.php?tid=855549&extra=">Bolts working to instill family atmosphere [http://forum.dldaylight.info/viewthread.php?tid=855549&extra= Bolts working to instill family atmosphere a> http://forum.dldaylight.info/viewthread.php?tid=855549&extra=">4.12 Bolts working to instill family atmosphere] Bolts working to instill family atmosphere Bolts working to instill family atmosphere, when he played in the U-16 championship. Slovenia marked Parker s seventh (!) consecutive EuroBasket. France couldn t ask for a better ambassador for the game than Parker, and it s nice to see his persistence pay off with gold, especially considering how the NBA Finals ended.

Marc Gasol, Spain (Grizzlies): Gasol has emerged as one of the darlings of basketball purists worldwide over the last few years. He was loads of fun to watch in Slovenia, in part because he wasn t flanked by Pau Gasol and Serge Ibaka. This was his show and he clearly understood it. Spain generally let Gasol operate in both the low and high posts, surrounding him with shooters to make defenses pay for collapsing on him. Defensively, they let him hold down the fort while they scrambled in search of turnovers and transition opportunities. It s a smart strategy and it really should have won them this tournament. If not for some terrible decision-making and shot selection down the stretch against France, the Spaniards would be celebrating their third straight gold.


Gasol led Spain by averaging 13.9 points (No. 7 overall in EuroBasket), 7.8 rebounds (No. 2) and one block (No. 7). He also shot a team-best 50.5 percent (No. 3 in EuroBasket) and he was, no surprise, named to the all-tournament team. His best performance arguably came in a losing effort, as he finished with 32 points and 10 rebounds in an overtime loss to Italy in the second round. Gasol s reputation as a passer is well-established, but the extra space provided by Spain s spread offense really helped him flourish. He went to the one-hand flick pass stuff often, and he also provided the single best highlight of the tournament with this spinning, full-court fling for a layup.


The downside to the international game for Gasol is clearly foul trouble. The difference between a five-foul disqualification (international rule) and the six-foul disqualification (NBA rule) is huge for a player with Gasol s size and workload on both ends. He got into big foul trouble during the gold-medal game against the United States at the?2012 London Olympics, and he had some issues in Slovenia, too, although he never fouled out. You really feel for Gasol, who shot a tournament-high 68 free throws (more than six per game) and was fouled eight or more times in five separate games. He takes tons of physical abuse and must constantly control both his emotions and extremities, even when fatigue and pressure set in.

Goran Dragic, Slovenia (Suns): Although the host nation was knocked out by France in the quarterfinals, there was a time in this tournament when it seemed like brothers Goran and Zoran Dragic would be able to lead Slovenia to a gold. Together, they are an endlessly entertaining duo, constantly attacking the hoop, pushing the ball in transition and sacrificing their bodies. Goran earned all-tournament honors by averaging a team-best 15.8 points (No. 4 overall in EuroBasket) and 4.5 assists (No. 3). The burden of carrying Slovenia s offense and being forced to create shot after shot for himself did cut into his shooting numbers (39.4 percent overall and 26.7 percent from three-point range). There isn t all that much to get?excited?about in Phoenix this year, but EuroBasket served as a reminder that the Dragic/Eric Bledsoe backcourt pairing will be an interesting one to watch.

Nicolas Batum,Authentic Patriots Jerseys Sale, France (Blazers): Inconsistency has been the knock on Batum for some time now, and his effectiveness in Slovenia went up and down like a seismographic wave. Get a load of this Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Batum contrast: He scored only three points, took just four shots (all three-pointers) and didn t grab a rebound against Spain in the semis, and then, only two days later, he scored a team-high 17 points, grabbed six rebounds and registered two steals in the final against Lithuania.

Many of his low moments could be attributed to shaky outside shooting (he made only 25.5 percent from three-point range) and passivity when his shot wasn t falling; he was sloppy with the ball during early-round play but he tightened that up in the elimination round (Spain game excluded). The intensity of his defense also ramped up as the tournament unfolded, and he had two key steals down the stretch against Spain, as well as some game-changing plays in the decisive second quarter against Lithuania. He often seems to dare opponents to drive past him so that he can erase their shots at the rim, but against this level of competition he enjoys a fair amount of success. Despite his uneven play and poor outside shooting, Batum finished as France s second-leading scorer (11.6 points) and rebounder (5.1). That proved to be (just barely) enough.

[Bearbeiten] New Surface tablets expected from Microsoft at NYC event

NEW YORK  Microsoft is expected to announce new Surface tablet computers, including a version with a smaller screen to compete with Google's Nexus 7 and Apple's iPad Mini.

The company has an announcement event scheduled in New York on Monday.

It comes about a month before Microsoft releases an update to its Windows 8 operating system on Oct. 17. Among other things, Windows 8.1 will be usable on smaller touch screens, which have become popular because they are cheaper and easier to carry. The previous version of Windows 8 was limited to tablets with 10-inch to 12-inch screens.

The new Surface tablets could also get lighter and thinner thanks to a processing chip that uses less energy and doesn't require a fan. Known as Haswell,2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel http://www.iscsx.com/Review.asp?NewsID=493">2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel [http://www.iscsx.com/Review.asp?NewsID=493 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel a> http://www.iscsx.com/Review.asp?NewsID=493">4.12 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel] 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel 2014 BMW X5- It's worth the wait for diesel, the chip is already used in laptops from Apple, Samsung, Dell and other companies. Apple's 13-inch MacBook Air with Haswell gets up to 12 hours of use, compared with seven hours before.

Microsoft began selling Surface tablets last October, but sales have been slow. The company shipped about a million tablets in the first three months of 2013, according to research firm IDC. That includes about 260,[13] [14] [15] [16] http://www.zgsclpw.cn/bbs/home.php?mod=space&uid=71169"> [http://www.zgsclpw.cn/bbs/home.php?mod=space&uid=71169 a> http://www.zgsclpw.cn/bbs/home.php?mod=space&uid=71169">4.12 ] ,000 of the slimmed-down RT version of Surface and 750,Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale,000 of the Pro version,4.12 Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale, which is compatible with older Windows programs. The shipments gave Microsoft a meager 2 percent share of the tablet market in the first quarter. By the second quarter,Authentic Giants Jerseys Sale, Microsoft tablets dropped out of IDC's Top 5.

Microsoft, which is based in Redmond, Wash., absorbed a $900 million charge in the April-June period to account for its expected losses from the Surface RT after it slashed prices to stimulate demand. The $150 cut brought the price of the Surface RT with 32 gigabytes of memory to $349. The Surface has a 10.1-inch screen measured diagonally. The RT version is 1.5 pounds. The Pro version is 2 pounds and starts at $799, $100 less than it was at launch.

Microsoft has manufactured devices before, such as its Xbox gaming console. In selling the Surface, the company became a competitor to its many manufacturing partners, which rely on its Windows operating system to power their machines. Microsoft is trying hard to succeed in tablets because personal computer sales are falling.

His articles have been careful to explain the background of any religious divisions in the country. Yesterday, his article said: “The Westgate attackers, by targeting non-Muslims and deliberately killing those who could not prove they were Muslims,Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale, were clearly trying to provoke religious tensions in Kenya, driving a wedge between Christians and Muslims who have always lived side-by-side there.

Mr. York said it would be unfair to suggest there is a connection between the Somali neighbourhood and Westgate. It would be akin to showing an ethnic community in any city in the world and suggesting that there was a connection to a terrorist attack or criminal activity and that is not fair. Acting Foreign Editor Susan Sachs said that map was published in error as it had been planned for a future story and a different map should have been published. I agree with both that especially during times of such attacks and ethnic tensions, it is much more important to tread carefully and not make connections that aren’t proven or even real.

[Bearbeiten] The Braves’ response to Jose Fernandez made the Braves

Jose Fernandez (PHOTO: Lynne Sladky/AP Photo) Tensions flared in the Marlins-Braves game on Wednesday night, and after 21-year-old Marlins ace Jose Fernandez crushed his first career home run in his last outing of an incredible rookie season. The Braves took exception to Fernandez admiring his shot, even though it was something clearly worth admiring.

Your browser does not support iframes.

All due respect to the Braves for owning the best record in the National League, but the Braves look silly here,Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale, much like they did when Julio Teheran . They re running away with their division, so they have the ultimate upper hand in every argument. Why should they care what their opponents do on the field as long as the main thing their opponents do on the field is lose?

Fernandez later said he embarrassed (his) teammates and 120 percent! that it would not happen again, presumably after manager Mike Redmond told him that it is not the Classic baseball-guy stuff.

Whatever. Whatever,Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale, whatever.

Baseball s a wonderful game, obviously, but some of baseball s so-called unwritten rules are among the dumbest in sports. Baseball players should be allowed to enjoy themselves on the field and demonstrate it without worrying about showing up the pitcher or disrespecting the game.


Even if Fernandez took a little extra time on his homer because of earlier tension, who cares? Jose Fernandez should be allowed to take all the time he wants admiring his first Major League homer,Authentic Giants Jerseys Sale, because and so are home runs.

And it s not disrespecting the game. That s the main thing. It s loving the game, and appreciating how incredibly fun it is to play. That s all.

The in Colorado this month caused more than 37,000 gallons of oil to spill into or near rivers, and the state's oil and gas industry is rushing to fix equipment damaged during the storm. It comes at a time when there's growing public concern about the environmental effects of hydraulic fracturing in the state.

In recent years, hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling technologies have enabled more oil and gas production along Colorado's Eastern Plains. The boom has led to thousands of well sites across the state. As heavy rain entered the forecast, operators shut off wells and equipment in flood-prone areas — and then water rose.
"So as the water crested there was a tremendous amount of I think earth moved in some cases to where the foundations to some of these tanks actually washed out underneath them," says Dan Kelly, vice president of Noble Energy's operations in the area.
The company reported four spills,Authentic Giants Jerseys Sale, amounting to almost 9,000 gallons of oil. In some instances the floodwaters quickly swept the oil downstream. In others, the company had to sop up the spilled oil or use vacuum trucks. Kelly says his company is still trying to gain access to a few sites.
"Due to the water, due to the currents, due to some of the other issues with potential pollutants — bacteria and some of the things we're very concerned with — we have not aggressively pursued trying to get into some that still have risk," he says.
The bacteria he's referring to — from raw sewage and animal excrement from feed lots — have also spilled into floodwaters. Overall, state officials are warning people to stay away from the water. But not everyone can make that choice.

By By |    9 hours agoRecommend0Tweet0 (Getty)It turns out Alex Rodriguez and his lawyers were just getting started when they , Just hours later, A-Rod and company moved onward and upward to the Bronx to file a second lawsuit, this time accusing Yankees' team doctor Chris Ahmad and New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center of medical malpractice.

To be more specific, the second lawsuit alleges the accused parties misdiagnosed and purposely misled A-Rod about the severity of his left hip injury during the 2012 playoffs.


Defendants,Authentic Giants Jerseys Sale, after performing,Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale, understanding and analyzing the MRI, had diagnosed Plantiff as suffering from a superior labral tear at the left hip; and without informing the plaintiff of the diagnosis, knowingly cleared the Plaintiff to resume playing as a third baseman for the New York Yankees during the [2012] season playoffs, thus allowing the Plaintiff to further injure himself and the necessity for additional surgeries.

Rodriguez was clearly not healthy during the 2012 postseason, a>, struggling to a .120 average with no extra-base hits in 27 at-bats. A-Rod did not opt to have surgery immediately following the season,Authentic Patriots Jerseys Sale, instead waiting until January. That pushed his recovery timetable from early June to Aug. 5. So basically A-Rod and company will attempt to prove his continued ineffective participation in the postseason,http://templatesforums.com/2013/10/maple-leafs-and-sabres-engage-in-epic-preseason-brawl_0/" rel="bookmark">Maple Leafs and Sabres engage in epic preseason brawl_0 a>, delayed operation and time lost were a direct result of the doctors' collective effort to sabotage him.

[Bearbeiten] Wife of 'wanted terrorist' al Libi- He left al Qaeda

U.S. forces strike in Libya and Somalia Meanwhile, Libya's interim government distanced itself from the operation and called the U.S. capture a kidnapping.

Rahman told CNN she didn't know who had taken her husband -- only that the raid she watched happen from her Tripoli home happened very quickly.

Al Libi was returning to his house at about 6:30 a.m. Saturday (12:30 a.m. ET) when a group of at least 10 men in four vehicles surprised him, his wife told CNN. Some of the men were wearing masks, while others weren't, she said. Those men looked like Libyans to her and they spoke Arabic with Libyan accents, she said.

"What I saw were Libyans. Maybe they had Americans with them, but I didn't see them because there was more than one car. They say there were 10 people involved, but I believe there were more than 10," Rahman said. "I couldn't count them because there were many of them. I can't confirm if they were Americans or not, but what I saw were Libyans. "

Elite team involved in capture

On Sunday, a U.S. official said commandos from the elite U.S. Army Delta Force had snatched the 49-year-old al Qaeda operative.

Tripoli has requested an explanation from Washington about the raid,Authentic Patriots Jerseys Sale, the country's state news agency reported Sunday.

The mission was conducted with the knowledge of the Libyan government, said one U.S. official. The Pentagon said the U.S. military was holding al Libi in a "secure location" outside Libya. A U.S. official told CNN that he was taken to a U.S. Navy warship after his capture.


"It's a masterpiece how someone can craft such an operation," said Libyan counterterrorism analyst Noman Benotman, who is also a former jihadist associate of al Libi.

Benotman is president of the , a London-based counterterrorism think tank. He is also a former senior member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group,Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale, which al Libi joined in the mid-1990s before gravitating back toward al Qaeda.

Al Libi had been living in that still unsettled nation, more or less in the open, for more than a year despite his alleged associations. According to Benotman, it is unlikely he was still playing an active role for al Qaeda.

His wife agreed, saying he was living a normal life, was not in hiding and had reapplied for a job with the oil ministry.

She said he has a severe case of hepatitis C and she worries about his health.

Next stop, New York?

Al Libi has been all around the globe -- Afghanistan, Pakistan, Sudan, Kenya, Britain, Iran and beyond -- making friends with some of the world's most notorious terrorists and enemies with the United States and its allies.

On Saturday, his odyssey ended where it began: in his homeland of Libya.

His next destination? He eventually will be taken to New York, a source with knowledge of the capture and proceedings told CNN, though the exact timing is unclear.

The Obama administration has activated the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group to interview him for intelligence purposes while he remains in U.S. military custody, U.S. officials told CNN. The team is led by the FBI and includes CIA and other intelligence agencies. After the interviews are concluded, he would be transferred to civilian custody and brought to New York to face federal charges, the officials said.

U.S. authorities have long wanted al Libi to stand trial in an American court to face charges for his alleged role in the that left well over 200 dead and thousands wounded.

Edith Bartley lost both her father, Julian Bartley, and her brother, Julian Jr., in the attack in Nairobi, Kenya. Her father was the U.S. Embassy's counsel general; her 20-year-old brother was an intern there.

"We know that this is a firm signal around the globe that as our government is still wading through a standstill right now, that we are still vigilant as a country and focused on international terror, and we're not going to step down at all," Bartley told CNN's "New Day Sunday."

Bartley said while she was relieved when Osama bin Laden -- also indicted in the embassy attacks -- was killed in 2011, she's also happy that al Libi was taken into custody.

"Certainly, we are very pleased to know that we can have someone who is captured, and for the wealth of information that may be available to our intelligence community and our military personnel," she said. "You can't put a price on that."

CNN's Nic Robertson, a veteran of covering al Qaeda, said al Libi's arrest is a "huge deal."

"He's a big player in al Qaeda (and) in one of the key target areas, in the north of Africa," he said. "This is a significant step."

Stops in Afghanistan, Britain, Iran and beyond

The -- part of its roster of "Most Wanted Terrorists" and noting the $5 million reward being offered for information leading directly to his apprehension -- says that he is accused in a "conspiracy to kill United States nationals, to murder, to destroy buildings and property of the United States, and to destroy the national defense utilities of the United States."

Born Nazih Abd al Hamid al Ruqhay, al Libi joined al Qaeda soon after its founding, as the terrorist organization built up its presence in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

When the group's late leader Osama bin Laden relocated to Khartoum, Sudan, in 1992, al Libi went with him.

As the 1990s continued, al Libi came to be known as one of al Qaeda's most capable operatives, especially for his expertise in surveillance and computers.

A fellow al Qaeda operative at one point testified that al Libi was in Nairobi in 1993, allegedly checking out possible targets, including the U.S. Embassy.

The blast in Kenya's capital five years later ended up killing more than 200 people and wounding 5,000. The Tanzania blast went off nearly simultaneously, leaving 11 people dead.

His wife denied that he had any role in any bombing and said that after he returned to Libya in 2011 during the revolution, he had been asking the Libyan government to help him clear his name. She did admit that he had belonged to al Qaeda, but said he was a personal guard for bin Laden until he left the terror group in 1996.


Al Libi at one point joined the jihadist Libyan Islamic Fighters Group before moving to Qatar and then Britain,[http://www.b-a-s-i-s.de/index.php/Benutzer:Xkhfmkii1#Is_Sinead_O.27Connor.27s_advice_to_Miley_Cyrus_good_for_girls- Is Sinead O'Connor's advice to Miley Cyrus good for girls- a>, settling in Manchester.

It was there, in 2000, that police raided his home.

Authorities uncovered a document that became known as the "Manchester Manual" -- hundreds of pages of guidance on carrying out a terrorist campaign. Among them: a document that called for "attacking, blasting and destroying" embassies.

But what they didn't find was al Libi, who had left the country before the raid.

He is thought to have spent time subsequently in Afghanistan before fleeing to Iran after the fall of the Taliban. Western intelligence sources believe he remained in that country before going home to Libya.

After years in native Libya, al Libi in U.S. hands

In September 2012, CNN was first to report that al Libi was alive and well in Libya. Western intelligence had tracked his movements in Tripoli, and had even taken surveillance photos.

Western intelligence sources said that there was concern that al Libi was working to establish an al Qaeda network in the North African nation, but no evidence has since materialized that he continued to be involved in terrorist operations after he returned to Libya.

So how long had he been home?

In December 2010, before the outbreak of the unrest that ended with Moammar Gadhafi's death, Libyan authorities told a United Nations committee that al Libi had returned, even giving a Tripoli address for him.

And one Western intelligence source said al Libi appears to have been in Libya in the spring of 2011, when the civil war was in full swing.

Family members told CNN al-Libi returned to Tripoli in 2011 to take part in the revolution against Gadhafi. His wife, four sons and daughter had arrived from Iran the previous year.

Al-Libi's sons and wife say they believed they were under surveillance over the past two years in Libya and expected anything -- even a drone strike. But Saturday's raid still came as a surprise.

"There was no longer any talk about him in the media,http://softvent.com/images/Giants-Jerseys-For-Cheap.html" title="Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale">Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale], so we felt somewhat reassured. He even stopped taking his weapon or his sons with him or hiring private security -- he was living his life normally," Rahman said.

Counterterrorism analysts told CNN in fall 2012 that al Libi may not have been apprehended at the time because of the delicate security situation in much of Libya, where ex-jihadists -- especially those who once belonged to the Libyan Islamic Fighters Group -- held considerable sway after the campaign against and ultimate ouster of longtime leader Gadhafi.

It was not clear for how long,http://www.suyiguo.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=724235" rel="bookmark">The moves that shaped the postseason a>, and how much, Libya's government knew about al Libi's presence, or whether other governments had approached them to arrest al Libi. The fact that there's no extradition treaty between Libya and the United States further complicates matters.

The fact that al Libi is in U.S. hands, of course, changes everything.

In addition to standing trial, al Libi will be questioned about what he knows about al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.

And if he talks, he could offer valuable information on men he worked with inside Libya, as well as al Qaeda generally.

"All his recent years of activation is going to come under very, very close and important scrutiny," said CNN's Robertson.

CNN's Jomana Karadsheh reported from Tripoli, Paul Cruickshank reported from London and Catherine E. Shoichet reported from Atlanta. Journalist Tim Lister and CNN's Greg Botelho, Steve Almasy, Evan Perez and Barbara Starr contributed to this report.

Siyempre, depende pa rin sa response ng tao kung ano ang magiging epekto ng Kung Fu Divas.

Kung magiging maganda, siguro baka mag-part two kami.

Masusundan ba kaagad ang pagpoprodyus niya ng isa pang pelikula?

Sagot ni Marian, Naku,Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale, di na muna. Minsan, mahirap ding maging producer.

Akala n yo lang ganun kadali ang dami mong kailangang i-sacrifice at isaalang-alang.

For example, itong shooting na to, pagod na pagod na kami ni Ate Ai, pero kailangan naming tapusin kasi.

Kapag another day, another P1.5 million na naman ang kailangan naming ilaan.

So, hangga t kaya naming isiksik sa isang araw, dapat ginagawa na namin.

Sa palagay ba niya ay ang Kung Fu Divas na ang pinakamalaking pelikulang nagawa niya?

Biggest movie, oo. Kasi sa special effects pa lang, tapos special guests pa.

Tapos, special tandem pa kami ni Ms. Ai-Ai delas Alas.

Naka-tandem ko pa dito ang Star Cinema, tapos nag-produce pa ako dito.

Siguro isa ito sa pinakamalaki o ito na yung pinakamalaki para sa akin, saad niya. --

[Bearbeiten] Broncos biggest NFL favorite ever in Vegas books

LAS VEGAS (AP) ― It looked like a mismatch even before hooked up for his first touchdown pass to and the rest of the NFL found out just how bad the really are. But now it's official. The are the biggest favorite ever in an NFL game in this gambling city, a whopping four-touchdown pick Sunday at home against the hapless Jaguars. Sports books in and around Las Vegas make Manning and the Broncos a 28-point favorite over Jacksonville, unheard of in an industry where half-point swings can be huge and most teams are rated within a few points of each other. But even the big line hasn't stopped people from betting money on the Broncos, even after they didn't cover the spread in Sunday's 51-48 win over the . "It didn't take people long to jump on the Broncos bandwagon, which is at its capacity now," said , who runs the sports book at the . "And we expect that to continue." Though the city's legal sports books don't keep historical records on such things ― and the NFL refuses to even acknowledge that betting lines exist ― those in the industry say the lopsided point spread surpasses the 26-point margin for favored Pittsburgh against Tampa Bay in 1976 when the Buccaneers were an expansion franchise and the got within a game of the Super Bowl. More recently, the biggest favorite was New England as a 24-point pick over Philadelphia in 2007, the year the Patriots made it through the regular season undefeated. "You have a team that can't seem to get out of their own way against a team that put up 51 points on Sunday," said , vice president of sports marketing at the . "Everything feeds into this. It's the best versus the worst." The game is so lopsided that most sports books aren't even putting up money lines on the game, where a bettor can simply pick a team to win or lose. Instead, oddsmakers tried to find a number that would somehow entice betting on the Jaguars even if they are given almost no chance of winning the game outright. That line turned out to be 28 points, meaning bettors who think Manning and the Broncos won't let off the gas at home against Jacksonville have to give up that many points to get a bet on Denver. Those who like Jacksonville,Authentic Giants Jerseys Sale, on the other hand, will start with a four-touchdown edge on their bets. "You might want to get out the Farmer's Almanac and hope they have 14 feet of snow Saturday night in Denver if you're taking the 28,[http://cepeivissa.cat/wiki/index.php/Usuari:Pxrdkcqp7#PayPal_Introduces_the_World_to_Payment_Code_at_Money2020 PayPal Introduces the World to Payment Code at Money2020 a>," Vaccaro said. "But it's still the NFL, where anything can happen." Denver bettors found that out Sunday when the Broncos ― who were heavily bet as 7?-point favorites in Dallas ― failed to cover the spread for the first time this season. Before that,http://keyamassociates.com/Patriots-Jerseys-For-Cheap.html" title="Authentic Patriots Jerseys Sale">Authentic Patriots Jerseys Sale], bettors were cashing in tickets by the handful on the Broncos and on the total score going over what oddsmakers thought it would be. "Dallas was America's Team but it's definitely Denver now," Vaccaro said. "It's all because of Manning, too. He's revitalized the whole franchise and made them the Super Bowl favorite." Kornegay said the city's sports books have had a good year so far taking money on the NFL, though the tremendous popularity of the Broncos has cost them some money. He said it was reminiscent of the 2007 season,Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale, when bettors kept putting money on the Patriots until oddsmakers got wise and raised the lines so much it was tough for even a dominant team to cover the spread. , who runs a website that analyzes betting and betting patterns, said casual bettors will continue to back the Broncos no matter what, while the professionals are more about where the numbers actually end up. "If you say this line is 28 or even 32 points the average bettor just shrugs and figures Peyton Manning will score no matter what," he said. For those who do like the Jaguars, there is recent historical precedence for betting them. In the 2007 game where New England was favored by 24 over Philadelphia,http://www.lsfcj.gov.cn/new/Review.asp?NewsID=307" rel="bookmark">Fuel Fix » Arctic oil discovery heralds more finds in Norway’s Barents Sea a>, the Patriots didn't come close to covering the spread in a 31-28 win.

[Bearbeiten] Samsung Continuum first hands

If surprise was the focus of the event, we'd say the Samsung Android-powered, Verizon-exclusive (and,Authentic Patriots Jerseys Sale, alas, Bing-driven) reveal was a -- but who cares now that we've got our hands on the Galaxy S phone, secondary ticker and all (at 480 x 96 resolution). The Android buttons themselves, as it turns out, are on the display as well -- basically, it's one huge display. The grip sensor that activates the display seems to work well, although it's pretty easy to squeeze the camera button by accident since it's also on the lower right of the phone. Unfortunately,Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale, there's no way for third-party apps to update the ticker -- it's limited to Samsung's stuff right now. We're trying to get some battery life info -- we're curious if turning on a smaller screen more often will result in a longer shelf life, or if it'll just be about even.
Update: Video after the break!
Update 2: Okay,Lady Gaga Releases ‘ARTPOP’ Album Cover In Miami, Around Globe &laqu a>, we got some more info on that screen. The entire front of the phone is one huge four-inch screen, with the Android buttons more or less painted over the lower third -- the screen lights up underneath them in white to illuminate them. Samsung says it's just easier for marketing purposes to say it's two screens,Michael Williamson, COO and CFO, D.C. United a>, but that they're selectively turning on the bottom portion of the display for the ticker. As far as battery life,Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale, it's a 1500mah battery that'll last about a day, we're told -- the lower screen turns on whenever a notification comes in, but since it's a smaller screen the battery life is on par with the Fascinate.
We also learned the "grip sensor" isn't really grip-based at all -- it's capacitive, so just lightly touching both sides of the phone lights up the ticker. It's pretty nice, although super easy to set it off by just holding the phone. Samsung says there will eventually be an API for third-party apps to use the ticker, but right now they're just focused on their core experiences. As for Bing, well, no one's saying why some Verizon phones get Binged out and some don't, but every indication is that Verizon calls those shots, not Samsung. We're also told that an Android 2.2 update will eventually arrive, but there's no timeline yet -- and there's a real chance this'll launch with 2.1 after 2.3 hits. Developing...
Update 3: Added a quick macro pic of the buttons after the break -- you can see how it's just one big screen. We also took some side-by-sides with a Captivate -- the Continuum is thicker and narrower. Samsung says the narrower size is designed to appeal to women, who generally have smaller hands.

[Bearbeiten] 10 things to know before visiting Copenhagen

You feeling the hygge? Have another. 4. "Hygge" is highly desirable

This Danish word (pronounced "hooga") loosely translates as "coziness."

It's a warm, sociable feeling that comes to the fore in autumn and winter and that,Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale, for Danes, is one of the highest states to which humans can aspire.

Wool sweaters (preferably organic), hats with earflaps,[http://www.ggfabu.com/thread-5806772-1-1.html NFC East- Fred Smoot calls RG3 a 'brat' a>, blazing log fires, strong ales in old wood-paneled bars and candles galore, even at breakfast, all conjure "hygge."

5. Home is where the Danish designer goods are

Copenhagen is rich with design-led stores selling trendy lights, ingenious kitchenware,http://www.jsyeshi.com/en/Review.asp?NewsID=435" rel="bookmark">Suzanne Somers says she has sex with her husband of 36 years 'a couple times a day' a>,http://softvent.com/images/Giants-Jerseys-For-Cheap.html" title="Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale">Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale], cheerful home furnishings and exquisite glass and ceramics.

These five shops are worth a visit:

(Nytorv 9)

Now in its 11th year, this purveyor of simple but good-looking furniture and accessories epitomizes the Danish dream to be "solid, straightforward, joyful and functional."

(Amagertorv 6)

Founded in 1775,Authentic Patriots Jerseys Sale, this august company is best known for its classic blue and white hand-painted dinnerware.

Close by are (Amagertorv 4), renowned for silver cutlery and jewelry, and (Amagertorv 10), a department store devoted to Danish-designed home items.

(?sterbrogade 70)

This cinema-turned-interiors-emporium in the affluent ?sterbro neighborhood is youthful and light -- anyone fancy a bright blue bowl in bendable rubber?

6. Copenhagen is extra-green

The Danish capital has electric buses, recycling-crazy citizens, clean harbors and shops selling clothes made from organic bamboo.

A full 64% of the city's hotel rooms are certified as eco-friendly.

Three-quarters of the food served in public institutions is organic.

Next year, Copenhagen will be the 2014 , an award that recognizes cities with consistently high environmental standards.

This is only the beginning: By 2025, Copenhagen plans to be the world's first carbon-neutral capital.

7. Tivoli will suck you in

Opened in 1843, is the world's second-oldest amusement park and a much-loved attraction in this family-friendly city.

Set inside mature gardens with a lake and playgrounds, it's a schmaltzy but happy place with roller coaster rides, pantomime shows, treat stalls, amusement arcades and more than 40 places to eat and drink.

Tivoli is open in summer from April 10 until September 21, then again for Halloween (October 11-27) and Christmas (November 15-December 31), when it sparkles with 2 million fairy lights.

[Bearbeiten] Costume festivals for grown

(CNN) -- As demonstrates, adults love playing dress up just as much as children. The only difference between junior and senior would-be masters-of-disguise is that kids don't need an excuse to don a costume; grown-ups, however, seem to feel more comfortable when there's a theme involved. In the market for an outfit to match your ? With Halloween on the horizon, we've rounded up some of the craziest costumed events out there.

Getting geeky with it

Self-proclaimed (and a few closeted) nerds will find no shortage of events catering to the dweebiest of whims. Though it faces some stiff competition (the , which encourages participants to dress as their favorite alien, could give it a run for its money), is arguably the dorkiest event on the calendar. The San Diego variant is not only the original, it is also the biggest comic-related convention. Last year heralded in over 130,000 visitors, with costumes ranging from Stark Trek characters to comic super heroes and even the odd Disney princess. As it has become an 'it' event for any Hollywood franchise wishing to build a cult-following (and there's a lot of them), Comic-Con has even managed to make the geek a little bit chic over the years, with A-list celebs .

Eyes Wide Shut

Fans of Stanley Kubrick should head to Italy to take part in one of the largest masked festivals on Earth. During , the "city without streets" takes on an especially surreal vibe as thousands of tourists join the locals in donning elaborate masks and gowns for ten days of celebrations. Though Carnevale's roots date back to the Middle Ages, the modern version has only been active since the '70s (blame Napoleon, who put an end to the fun when he invaded in 1797).

The city's Piazza San Marco becomes mobbed with tourists and photographers, who snap pics of professionals strutting their stuff in ornate robes and those creepy, bird-like masks the city is famous for.

We thought, 'well, we're known as the town with the frozen dead guy, so let's have a festival.'
Amanda MacDonald, Frozen Dead Guy Days Time travelers delight

At the , which runs every weekend throughout April and May,Authentic Giants Jerseys Sale, the 242,000 annual visitors are prone to dress in period outfits. The festival is set in 1533, the year Henry VIII married Anne Boleyn.

General manager Coy Sevier says that historically, during a royal wedding,the king and queen would tour all the villages in their realm. He notes that such an event makes a handy motif for a gathering dedicated to outrageous costumes.

"Of course, anytime the king comes to town, it's a good time to spruce up, put on your finest, and put on a good show," he says. Though the professional performers are held to a high standard, with costume guards making sure no detail is out of place, for everyone else, it's a free for all.


"We have guests that come in as Dr. Who. We have a whole selection of musketeers. Even though they're a couple hundred years off, they're more than welcome," he says.

The Vikings are coming!

The Shetland Islands in the UK is home to the world's largest fire festival, , which also happens to be a holdover from Viking times. As such, the event is celebrated with a procession of 1,000 "guizers", or men in Viking costume, making their way through the town of Lerwick until they reach the Valhalla, where they then toss lit torches into a Viking long ship.

Though dressing up is mainly reserved for locals, anyone is invited to witness the event. Last year, 5,000 onlookers cheered the helmeted mass as they readied themselves to take down another ship.

Unleash the dark

Lovers of the macabre will do well to visit Leipzing, Germany during the annual ,[http://bbs.308308.com/uchome/space.php?uid=99619&do=blog&id=938493 Craig Berube tells reporter to ‘get lostR a>, aka, the Wave and Goth Festival. The costumes are remarkably diverse; futuristic robots are as much the norm as darkly-clad, Byron-esque romantics. The one thing that seems to unify the 20,000 participants, however, is an affection for Goth culture (which just happens to be very varied).

We have a whole selection of musketeers, even though they're a couple hundred years off.
Coy Sevier, Scarborough Faire Renaissance Festival "In the last few years, new music styles have developed within the scene. In many cases, fashion is connected to that specialist taste, which is why there's such a range," explains Cornelius Brach,http://keyamassociates.com/Patriots-Jerseys-For-Cheap.html" title="Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale">Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale], the festival organizer.

Won't you join the (blue) ball?

In 1995, the small town of Nederland, Colorado (population 1,470) became an unintentional symbol for cryogenics. A few years earlier, the body of Norwegian citizen Bredo Morst?l was shipped out to the town to live stored in a frozen state in the home of his daughter, Aud Morst?l. When she was evicted for living in a house without electricity or plumbing, she went to the local press in the hopes of salvaging her father's remains.


Today, "Grandpa Bredo" (as he's known locally) is stored in a shed, packed with 1,600 pounds of dry ice delivered by a team of volunteers. In 2002, the town decided to commemorate the event with , an annual three-day homage to corpses and cold.

"We're a very small mountain town, and it's hard to eke out a living. The Chamber of Commerce was like, 'well, we're known as the town with the frozen dead guy, so let's have a festival,'" explains Amanda MacDonald, the event organizer.

Highlights of the fete include a coffin race, hearse parade, costume polar plunge and the Frozen Blue Ball -- a necro-themed costume party. Though anything goes in terms of costumes,Authentic Patriots Jerseys Sale, the theme tends to revolve around cold things. Penguins,http://www.tjgly.com/2012mote/plus/view.php?aid=665284" rel="bookmark">Costume festivals for grown a>, says McDonald, are popular.

[Bearbeiten] 10 things the U.S. does better than anywhere else

Saying "vive la différence" in American. 5. Diversity

The U.S. is a microcosm of nearly every world culture, climate,Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale, landscape and category of wildlife. (And whatever doesn't occur naturally gets recreated at Disney.)

Beaches extend from Cape Cod to Kaanapali; bayous encircle the Gulf of Mexico; alpine mountains streak the Rockies and Appalachians; rain forests span the Pacific Northwest; deserts stretch across the Southwest.

Cougars, wolves, bear, bison and mustangs roam plains and forests; gators, crocs, whales, dolphins, turtles and snakes frequent the coasts; condors,[http://www.dcnihao.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=1503004&fromuid=70341 Weekend Plans With Andrew Messick- Ironman World Championship In Hawaii a>, eagles, falcons, flamingos, bats and pterodactyls -- just making sure you're still with us -- inhabit the skies.

But of course the Melting Pot concept was built on ethnic diversity. Despite the politics of immigration, the U.S. has and will continue to welcome the world's huddled (and also brilliant) masses, making it as heterogeneous as any nation on earth.

6. Canyons

Geo-diversity has pocked much of the landscape with vast gorges and canyons that create expansive pockets of pure emptiness ringed by the most stunning rock formations, vegetation and slack-jawed tourists imaginable.

Unbelievable until experienced, Utah's Bryce Canyon is the closest you can get to another planet without tickets on Virgin Galactic.

Then there's Black Canyon of the Gunnison (Colorado), Palo Duro Canyon (Texas), Canyon de Chelly (Arizona), Sequioa and Kings Canyon (California), Waimea Canyon (Hawaii) and hundreds more to round out a list so deep and wide that it makes the U.S. the hands-down winner in this category even without mentioning the Grandest one of them all.

[Bearbeiten] Opinion- World worries- Can it count on U.S.-

Any common ground on the shutdown? The "declinist" debate has been raging for years, driven in large part by America's (as against China's rise in particular). However, with the recent economic recovery, such views were wavering, and the strength of U.S. innovation,Miley Cyrus on 'SNL'- 'Hannah Montana' is dead a>, entrepreneurship and technology,Authentic Patriots Jerseys On Sale, coming on top of the energy revolution,[http://xgzd444.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=983544 Phonebloks- the smartphone for the rest of your life a>, were persuading some that the United States was once again on the rise.

In recent weeks however, these arguments have been overcome by the pictures of gridlock and weakness in Washington. First it was the story that Obama was "saved" by Russian President Vladimir Putin from an embarrassing loss in a congressional vote to attack Syria over its suspected use of chemical weapons. Then came the shutdown. And, for those in the private sector in particular, a developing fear that, come October 17, when the United States needs to raise its debt ceiling, it will instead drive itself and the world's economy off a cliff.

The idea of America as a secure, stable, predictable state, where investment cannot fail to be reimbursed,http://softvent.com/images/Giants-Jerseys-For-Cheap.html" title="Authentic Giants Jerseys Sale">Authentic Giants Jerseys Sale], would suffer a significant blow. Holders of Treasury bonds would no longer be assured of their returns. Chinese efforts to weaken the position of the dollar as the only reserve currency would get a boost. Investors would no longer have the gold-standard U.S. guarantee.

But while perceptions are extremely important, they are not reality. As Sunday's anti-terrorist operations in Somalia and Libya show, America will act when it wants to. While the U.S. Treasury bond may seem less secure,Authentic Giants Jerseys On Sale, it is still far stronger and better guaranteed than that of any other large economy.

A nation moves when its interests, capabilities and will are engaged. America's interests have not changed. Its capabilities are still vastly superior to those of most other nations. The only question is America's will.

Many internationally will continue to question U.S. power and influence. Its adversaries will surely continue to test these. America's allies and friends will be made nervous over its perceived decline. But while the Washington gridlock and partisan politics make action tougher and more costly -- make it harder for America to rally friends and share burdens, and to deter and dissuade opponents -- it would nevertheless be dangerous to underestimate the United States.
