[Bearbeiten] ‘Total War- Rome 2′ Second Patch Brings Better P
Rome wasn t built in a day, after all. Fortunately for you, developer has promptly, officially released patch 2 for Total War: Rome 2, and the patch aims to address a number of issues from all facets of the game; campaign AI, battlefield AI, multiplayer functionality, performance, and so on. As the press release sent by SEGA notes, the second patch deploys over 100 fixes across all areas of the game, and The Creative Assembly isn t intending to stop there. Over on the it was confirmed that one patch will be rolling out every week until things are stable. Patch 2 was already out in beta form, and The Creative Assembly is now working on rolling out a beta for patch 3. Until then, we ll focus on what patch 2 addresses. If you want (some) of the important bits, you can read the summary below if you d prefer to read the full patch notes (might want to grab something to eat/drink), simply look directly below the summary. Summary: Campaign map performance and performance boosts across the board, although the notes suggest that some of the enhancements were intended as fixes for certain GPUs. AI in both the campaign and battlefield sees an improvement as well; and the developer admits in the notes that there s still more work to be done on that front. The last important bit is that the patch adds in some gameplay changes. Normal infantry speed has been reduced on the battlefield, but shock cavalry has seen an increase in speed for both its run and charge. Flanking attacks will also now have more of a morale hit on the enemy. Lastly, the developer adjusted some campaign mechanics such as Food and Squalor. It should also be noted that a new option has been added when starting a campaign. Rather than turning on or off AI movements on the campaign map, there s now a limited option that will only show certain events. For more info on that, see the third entry under technical and performance issues in the patch notes, which begin directly below.

[Bearbeiten] Psychiatric CEO, 60, sentenced to 25 years in prison for Med
The judge also delivered lengthy prison sentences to two other Hollywood Pavilion executives who were convicted this summer along with Kallen-Zury. Martinez gave Daisy Miller, 44, of Hollywood,
cheap basketball jersey, a 15-year sentence, and Christian Coloma, 49, of Miami Beach, a 12-year term.

Although the prison terms were substantial, Justice Department prosecutors had sought harsher sentences for all three defendants: 40 years for Kallen-Zury,4.12 where to buy nfl jerseys, 30 years for Miller and 25 years for Coloma. Kallen-Zury s attorney sought house arrest at her waterfront home, but was denied. The others attorneys also sought house arrest or much shorter sentences, to no avail.

Kallen-Zury s attorney Michael Pasano scoffed at the prosecutor s characterization, calling it an exaggeration.
Mrs. Kallen-Zury did not throw patients into a cell and lock the door, Pasano said, challenging the government s portrayal of Hollywood Pavilion, which is across the street from Memorial Regional Hospital, as a horror show.
Pasano submitted an array of letters from family members, friends, colleagues and employees, noting that the sentiments in these letters are consistent and strong: Mrs. Kallen-Zury is a good, honest person who should not go to jail. Many of those supporters packed the judge s courtroom for her sentencing. Kallen-Zury herself sought mercy from Martinez, depicting herself as a woman whose imprisonment would also destroy the lives of those close to her.
I am the mother of a 16-year-old son and the daughter of a 90-year-old mother, who both need me, each in their own special way, said Kallen-Zury, whose late father founded Hollywood Pavilion. I am worried what will happen to them.
In June, a federal jury found that Kallen-Zury conspired with the other defendants to submit false Medicare claims for $67 million over almost a decade. The 12-person jury also found that Medicare was tricked into paying almost $40 million to Hollywood Pavilion, whose CEO and others covered up the scheme by falsifying the records of ineligible patients and fabricating marketing contracts with patient recruiters. The recruiters, many of them convicted felons, were paid more than $1 million for the patient referrals.
[Bearbeiten] NEW YORK- Nation pauses on 9-11 to pay tribute to victims
"It is an honor to be with you here again to remember the tragedy of 12 Septembers ago, to honor the greatness of all who responded and to stand with those who still grieve and to provide them some measure of comfort once more," Obama said. "Together we pause and we give humble thanks as families and as a nation." A moment of silence was also held at the U.S. Capitol. At the site in lower Manhattan, friends and families silently held up photos of the deceased. Others wept. "Twelve years is like 15 minutes," said Clyde Frazier Sr., whose son Clyde Frazier Jr., died in the attack and whose remains were never found. "Time stands still because you love your child, you love your son. ... Nothing changes except he's not here. It takes a toll on your body. You still look like you, but inside,where to buy cheap nfl jerseys, you're a real wreck." Bells tolled to mark the second plane hitting the second tower and the moments when the skyscrapers fell. Near the memorial plaza, police barricades were blocking access to the site, even as life around the World Trade Center looked like any other morning, with workers rushing to their jobs and construction cranes looming over the area. "As time passes and our family grows, our children remind us of you," Angilic Casalduc said of her mother, Vivian Casalduc. "We miss you."

While I’m all for players playing hard, rough, and to the whistle, Suh has simply had too many past transgressions to justify his most recent offense as ‘getting caught up in the play’.
Suh’s rap sheet reads like something more suited to ‘Sue’ the world’s largest Tyrannosaurus Rex, than it does a football player.? Since his first season in the NFL, Suh has made a name for himself by terrorizing the NFL with his perpetually dirty play.? Whether it be kicking Matt Schaub in the boysenberries or applying Evan Dietrich-Smith’s deodorant for him with the bottom of his cleat, Suh just doesn’t seem to get it, and for a guy who made over 9 million bucks last year, a $100,000 fine is nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
The NFL needs to take more severe action against players like Suh who have shown a propensity for erratic and dangerous play by punishing them with multiple game suspensions, not small fines.? Then and only then, can we expect Suh’s on the field antics to be like Sue the Dinosaur,cheap basketball jersey a>, extinct.

The LRT plan remains mired in city council debates with some councillors worrying its $811 million tab is too steep for a city struggling through an economic transition.

Loomis said the public debate over the transit plan has paid too much attention to its cost rather than its potential benefits. Even Chamber of Commerce members remain deeply divided on the plan because of that focus. "I wouldn't want to survey the members on this right now because I don't think the result would be good.

De La Hoya and his promotion company helped set up the Alvarez-Mayweather fight. Alexis (Cuarezma/Getty Images)
LAS VEGAS Former six-division champion Oscar De La Hoya has voluntarily checked himself into an undisclosed treatment facility and will not attend Saturday’s showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. The 40-year-old De La Hoya, the president and founder of Golden Boy Promotions, one of the most powerful promotional companies in boxing and the co-promoter of Mayweather-Alvarez, confirmed the news in a statement released Tuesday afternoon.
De La Hoya who has admitted to battling alcohol and cocaine addictions in the past did not indicate what he was seeking treatment for. In 2011,where to buy nfl jerseys, De La Hoya checked himself into a rehab facility for undisclosed reasons.
Canelo Alvarez and I have big fights coming up this weekend. His is in the ring and mine in treatment,” De La Hoya said. “I will not be at the fight to cheer Canelo to victory since I have voluntarily admitted myself to a treatment facility. I explained this to Canelo, and he understood that my health and long-term recovery from my disease must come first. Thank you for your understanding. I ask for your support during this difficult time and for me and my family.”
Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer said that in the past week De La Hoya had opened up to him about his ongoing problems. Schaefer admitted,Sprinkler systems should be mandatory in college housing, however, that he was surprised by the timing of the decision.
“He really sounded very bad,” Schaefer said. “It wasn’t one of the things when you can wait until next week. I was surprised. But at the same time I was very supportive. I didn’t try to convince him that he had to be here. It wouldn’t have been the advice of a friend. I was hoping it wouldn’t happen but it did happen. I’m very proud of him. It’s not perfect timing,cheap baseball jersey, but what is? They say the show must go on. Oscar has a fight where he is and we have a big fight here.”
Both Alvarez and Mayweather expressed support for De La Hoya.
“I support him in his life battle,” Alvarez said. “I am sure he is going to win his battle, and I am going to win mine.”
Said Mayweather, “I wish him nothing but the best. Hopefully he can pull through, like a true champion.”
Schaefer said he didn’t know how long De La Hoya would be in rehab. In interviews, De La Hoya has previously admitted that his addictions led him to consider suicide.
Within a couple of years, just thinking, Is my life even worth it?, De La Hoya said in a 2011 interview with Univision. I don t have the strength,where to buy cheap nfl jerseys,New plan focuses on lowering Long Island's nitrogen pollution, I don t have the courage to take my own life. But I was thinking about it.
There were drugs. My drug of choice was cocaine and alcohol. Cocaine was recent, the last two years, last two-and-a-half years, and I depended more on the alcohol than the cocaine. It took me to a place where I felt safe. It took me to a place where I felt like nobody can say anything to me. It took me to a place where I can reach out and just grab my Mom.

Credit dbking / Creative Commons/Flickr The late tennis pro Bobby Riggs called himself Sugar Daddy in the lead-up to 'The Battle of the Sexes,' his match against then No. 2-ranked women's tennis pro Billie Jean King in 1973. ESPN senior writer Don Van Natta, Jr. speaks to Tom Hudson, host of The Florida Roundup. The 1973 tennis match between Bobby Riggs and Billie Jean King, dubbed "The Battle of the Sexes," is an iconic moment in sports history.?

For years, though,cheap baseball jersey, speculation has been that Riggs threw the match. ? Riggs had decisively beat No. 1-ranked Margaret Court in a game just months before he played King, who was then ranked No. 2. But now : a former assistant golf pro in Tampa, Hal Shaw, claims he overheard mob bosses discuss a proposal by Riggs to throw the match. The conversation among the bosses reportedly happened at the Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club in Tampa.

At the very least, he concludes, “I think we build a very strong circumstantial case that raises new questions.”
[Bearbeiten] Johnson Controls to debut production
Johnson Controls on Wednesday will unveil a production-ready version of a two-battery micro hybrid system that it says can boost a car's fuel economy by 15%.
The micro hybrid is designed to give carmakers an alternative that's less expensive than full-scale hybrids or electric vehicles to boost gas mileage and comply with global warming regulations in place around the world.
The Glendale firm unveiled a prototype version of the technology in January, and is now preparing to ship the first generation of the battery to automakers for testing in December.
The batteries are being unveiled at the International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Germany.
The micro battery system will use a 12-volt lead-acid starter battery and a 48-volt lithium ion battery, with the latter designed to capture energy quickly from braking, and support energy-intensive features such as air conditioning and active chassis technologies, the company said. In addition to starting the car, the 12-volt battery will be tapped to run interior and exterior lights as well as radios and DVD players.
The lithium-ion cells and the prototype batteries will be made at the company's advanced battery factory in Holland, Mich.
The micro hybrid technology is one of several products Johnson Controls, the world's largest supplier of automotive batteries, is developing to help the auto industry meet aggressive gas mileage standards designed to reduce tailpipe emissions of carbon dioxide.
The company already builds lithium-ion batteries for hybrid vehicles as well as advanced lead-acid batteries for start-stop systems, which enable a car to shut off when it's idling and restart when the accelerator is pushed.
Johnson Controls is one of 11 companies around the world that are trying to forge a niche in next-generation battery technologies, according to industry analysts at Navigant Research. The consulting firm says Johnson Controls is among the leaders in the lithium-ion battery race,where to buy nfl jerseys, along with Korea-based LG Chem and Japan-based AESC.
International competition European carmakers may introduce new models with micro hybrid batteries several years ahead of a 2020 mandate that new vehicles achieve an average of 58 miles per gallon.
A lot of it's going to be driven by the milestones for CO2 regulations that the European market needs to hit by 2020, said Craig Rigby, Johnson Controls vice president of product management and strategy. We think this is going to be a big part of their strategy to do that.
After that, the company expects U.S. automakers to adopt the technology. By 2020, two-thirds of all cars sold worldwide could deploy the micro hybrid or start-stop technologies, Johnson Controls has forecast.
The batteries have been designed with standardized components and size to help Johnson Controls reduce the manufacturing cost for the technology.
The market for automotive batteries is projected to expand rapidly as automakers move to incorporate more recharging, hybrid and plug-in electric technologies in the years ahead.
In a presentation late last year, Johnson Controls forecast that the global market for automotive batteries will double between 2012 and 2017, to $53 million from $26 million.
The micro hybrid is more affordable for carmakers because full hybrids use batteries with much higher voltage 300 or 400 volts and the use of those high-power systems requires more sophisticated and costly safety features built into the car,Peru's Most Famous Chef Will Open A Restaurant In Miami, Rigby said.
When the brake is pressed to regenerate the battery, the 48-volt lithium-ion battery generates more power for vehicle systems than the 12-volt battery used in start-stop technology, he said
Battery efficiency Several years ago, Johnson Controls identified an opportunity between start-stop battery technology, which can boost fuel economy by about 5%, and more costly full-scale hybrid batteries, as a way to help automakers meet the aggressive fuel economy targets,cheap baseball jersey, Rigby said.
The micro hybrid,San Antonio Spurs- Nando de Colo Continues to Perplex at Eur, incorporating the 48-volt battery,cheap basketball jersey, is stealing that next 10% to 12% of efficiency gains, but at a much lower cost, he said.
[Bearbeiten] Series Reveals Underground Market For 'Re
In an exhaustive, 18-month investigation, and allegations of sexual and physical abuse at the hands of guardians. In the five-part series, "The Child Exchange: Inside America's underground market for adopted children," Reuters tracked down several adopted children who had been passed from one guardian to another through contacts made on groups on Yahoo and Facebook specializing in such re-homing. The news agency says:
"... parents and others advertise the unwanted children and then pass them to strangers with little or no government scrutiny, sometimes illegally, a Reuters investigation has found. It is a largely lawless marketplace. Often, the children are treated as chattel, and the needs of parents are put ahead of the welfare of the orphans they brought to America"
... Reuters analyzed 5,029 posts from a five-year period on one Internet message board, a Yahoo group. On average, a child was advertised for re-homing there once a week. Most of the children ranged in age from 6 to 14 and had been adopted from abroad �C from countries such as Russia and China, Ethiopia and Ukraine. The youngest was 10 months old."
About 70 percent of the children being advertised for re-homing were originally adopted from overseas and custody was transferred using a simple "power of attorney" document, typically utilized for temporary situations, such as when a child is to be looked after for a short period of time by a trusted relative.
For example, Quita Puchalla, now 21, was first adopted from her native Liberia by Todd and Melissa Puchalla,where to buy nfl jerseys, of Kiel, Wisc., who "struggled for more than two years to raise ... the troubled teen." When they gave up, they were able to re-home Quita with Nicole and Calvin Eason of Illinois.

[Bearbeiten] Lessons From Libya On How To Destroy Chemical Weapons
When the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003, one of the broader goals was to send a strong deterrent message to other dictators who might have weapons of mass destruction (even if Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein didn't). Recent events in Syria show that President Bashar Assad didn't heed the warning. But Libya's Moammar Gadhafi did. Apparently fearing he might be next on the U.S. list of doomed dictators, Gadhafi stepped forward in December 2003 and announced he was giving up the country's substantial stocks of chemical weapons. He also agreed to disband a nuclear program that was still at a relatively modest level. U.N. teams were sent in and dismantled Libyan facilities on site. Components from the nuclear plants were flown to a U.S. nuclear facility in Oak Ridge, Tenn., and destroyed there. This entire operation received limited attention at the time and was overshadowed by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. But it has suddenly become relevant given Syria's apparent willingness to relinquish chemical weapons that it never explicitly acknowledged having in the past. It Isn't Quick Or Easy Lesson No. 1 is that dismantling a chemical weapons program is a laborious process,, even when a country like Libya is cooperating and is at peace, as Libya was at the time. After years of work, the Libyan arsenal was still being taken apart when an uprising against Gadhafi broke out in early 2011. This forced the U.N. inspection unit, the, to suspend its efforts. In November 2011, shortly after Gadhafi was ousted and killed, the interim government that replaced him announced it had found a "previously undeclared chemical weapons stockpile" that included several hundred munitions loaded with mustard gas, . "The destruction of those weapons was halted because of a technical malfunction at the disposal facility and is still not complete. Nine years after vowing to get rid of its weapons, Libya has destroyed barely half of its total mustard gas stockpile and just 40 percent of its stores of chemical weapons precursor elements," Foreign Policy noted. After Gadhafi gave up his weapons, he was rewarded with better relations with the West. However, he felt he received far less than he was promised, and he was ultimately ousted in a NATO bombing campaign that greatly helped the rebels fighting him. Reviewing Gadhafi's experience, dictators may see it as a reason to cling to, rather than give up, weapons of mass destruction. Syria's Stockpile Syria's chemical weapons program would likely be even harder to take apart than Libya's. Syria is embroiled in civil war,cheap baseball jersey, it's stockpile is believed to be much larger than Libya's, and it's production and storage facilities are believed to be scattered among dozens of sites round the country. "The known sites are actually in zones of conflict where the battle lines are changing literally on a day-to-day basis," Amy Smithson, a chemical weapons expert at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, told Morning Edition. To further complicate matters, the Syrian government keeps moving the chemical weapons around, Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said earlier this year. The Pentagon has estimated that it would take 75,where to buy nfl jerseys,000 U.S. troops in Syria to take full control of the country's chemical weapons. By comparison,cheap basketball jersey, the U.S. has 60,000 troops in all of Afghanistan. And President Obama, in his speech to the nation on Tuesday evening, reiterated he will not send American forces into Syria. "None of this is mission impossible. But it is certainly not easy. It isn't quick and it requires a lot of transparency and cooperation," Anthony Cordesman, a defense analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told Morning Edition. Syria has one of the world's largest chemical weapons arsenals, which includes traditional chemical agents, such as mustard gas, and more modern agents, such as sarin, and persistent nerve agents, such as VX, according to the , which is based in Israel. "Syria has accumulated since the 1980s a stockpile of approximately 1,000 tons of chemical weapons, stored in some 50 different cities, mostly located in the northern part of the country close to the Turkish border," the group added in a report released this week. This has set off alarm bells, raising worries that the Syrian government could lose control of the arsenal. However,Brandon Jacobs- Fantasy Football Impacts of New York Giants, the center noted that it would probably be difficult for non-experts to use the Syrian weapons. Most of Syria's chemical weapons are "stored as two separate ingredients that must be combined before lethal use, making it hard for its detonation by non-professional elements." Syria's Secrecy
Until recently, Syria had never acknowledged possessing chemical weapons. Syria now admits having them, yet denies using them. The U.S. and others say Syrian government forces have unleashed the weapons on multiple occasions, including an Aug. 21 attack near Damascus that killed more than 1,400 people. U.N. weapons inspectors happened to be in Syria on Aug. 21 to investigate reports of chemical weapons attacks months earlier. When the inspectors asked to visit the Damascus sites, the Assad government resisted for four days before granting permission. The historic secrecy surrounding the program raises doubts about how forthcoming Syria might be if the United Nations were to ask for a full accounting of its chemical weapons program, as Russia, Syria's ally, has proposed. "There are a lot of complications in this proposal," said Smithson of the Monterey Institute. "Assad has not told the truth about his chemical arsenal. He has already interfered with inspections. So to assume the declaration that the Assad government would be making is going to be accurate is really to take a leap of faith."

[Bearbeiten] Hanley Ramirez, rejuvenated and relevant, leads Dodgers past
LOS ANGELES – He s bigger than you think, is. Broader. Thicker. He walks with that heaviness sometimes, in the later innings when his body is weary, especially heavy for a man who plays shortstop and twice stole more than 50 bases in this league. He wears his jersey rakishly unbuttoned, like it can t hold him,cheap baseball jersey, not tonight it can t, that big chain and cross dangling, and he holds his bat high, and kicks his front leg high, and fellow ballplayers don t understand how all that doesn t kill his bat speed. But it doesn t. Never has. Somewhere along the line, the world began to underestimate Hanley Ramirez. He was hurt. He didn t really want to play. He was tired of being a Florida Marlin. He had made his money. The perception of him had changed,cheap basketball jersey, and whether it was self-inflicted or not was a matter of where one stood in relation to an unflattering career arc. The Marlins, for one, unloaded him, happily, as they are prone to do. He said Sunday night, after he d hit three more line drives and the had played to the brink of the NLCS, that those were terrible times, when a weak shoulder had made him half the player he expected of himself.
I don t want to remember those moments, he said. It was awful.
But, yeah, at 29, suddenly he s bigger than you thought he was. Wearing the white jersey and playing shortstop and batting third is who he is again, and in a place where they re suckers for stars. In a division series that means the world to the Dodgers, who are trying to make something of themselves again too, it is Ramirez who has never been better, and he d been pretty damned good once before.
.Hanley Ramirez has seven hits in 13 at-bats in the first three games of the series. (AP)
In three games against the Atlanta Braves,Iran Says It Has Arrested 4 In Nuclear Sabotage Plot - The T, including Sunday s , Ramirez is batting .538. The Dodgers are a win away, with a full ballpark awaiting Monday night s Game 4, with Clayton Kershaw in reserve if that doesn t work out, and with Ramirez swinging the bat like there s not a pitch or a pitcher who could beat him. Against a pitching staff that was the finest in the National League over six months, Ramirez has seven hits in 13 at-bats. He s homered, tripled, doubled four times and driven in six runs.
Watch every pitch of those 13 at-bats, every subtle weight shift, the way he starts high and finishes higher, grander, and the way the ball leaves the bat, hard and backspun, and a greater question arises.
Yeah, A.J. Ellis said, I don t know how he got out six times.
After he d doubled off Julio Teheran, tripled off Alex Wood and singled off Jordan Walden, all part of a 14-hit uprising by the Dodgers, Ramirez seemed touched by how wonderful the game could be again. He d watched so many October baseball games from his home in Miami and never played in one himself. He d sat through the San Francisco Giants celebration last October, and he told himself often that next year would be the Dodgers and him playing for something like that. Not everybody wins, of course,where to buy nfl jerseys, but Ramirez wanted a shot at it.
We re here now, he said.
He s still not whole. Every day,Conrad Black vs. the Headless Horseman. Who wins-, like the men on rosters all over the game, he trudges into the trainer s room and tends to his back and his hamstring and whatever else may have arisen. Don Mattingly, his manager, had rested him plenty in the season s final weeks, because of days like today. Ramirez fought him plenty, too. He wanted to play.
I just kept telling him, Mattingly said, I want the whole world to see you. I want the world to see how good you are.
Ramirez would nod and report to the bench, waiting for the important games and the important at-bats, allowing his body to catch up to the time of season. Along came the fourth inning Sunday night. Ramirez laced a line drive into left-center field. He turned first and headed to second base, pulling up slightly as he arrived. Braves center fielder Jason Heyward noted Ramirez s deceleration and he, too, slowed. And then Ramirez dug for third base. He beat the throw easily. The Dodgers scored four runs that inning. They are better for him. Since the trade two Julys ago, Ramirez has played 150 games as a Dodger and batted .312 with 30 home runs and 101 RBI. The three playoff games, you know about.
When I got here, they changed everything around me and in my mind, he said. From the first day, Donnie, I remember when I got to St. Louis and when I walked into his office, he just told me to just be you.
Part of that has been injuries. The rest has been production. And at a time the Dodgers are trying to become relevant again, so is Hanley Ramirez, and it seems to suit them both. In fact, they re both a little bigger for it.

[Bearbeiten] Jason Collins still waiting for call from NBA team
OAKLAND, Calif. – Free-agent center , who announced in May that he is gay, has received interest from a handful of NBA teams, but has yet to sign with anyone three weeks before the start of the 2013-14 season.
.Jason Collins ended last season with the Wizards. (USA Today)
Collins, 34, became the first active athlete in one of the four major American professional team sports to announce he s gay. The are among four teams to have shown interest in signing Collins, but ultimately opted to add a younger center – Hamady Ndiaye – to compete for their final roster spot, league sources told Yahoo Sports. There would probably have been slight awkwardness in the beginning, Kings forward Chuck Hayes said. But after a while, he s a man, he s a human being, he s a ball player. You d just treat him like any other teammate.
Warriors president and chief operating officer Rick Welts, who is also openly gay, told Yahoo Sports that he spoke to Collins last week over the phone. Welts said Collins is in good spirits despite not being signed.
I didn t know what to expect and I don t think Jason knew what to expect, Welts said. I am rooting for him and I think a lot of people are rooting for him to find a job. But where that is going to be, how that is going to come about and whether it will, is an open question. There are a lot of basketball players looking for jobs right now. He just happens to be 7-feet tall and a good character guy. All I can do is encourage him. I just spoke to him this week and he just finished a two-mile trail run and an hour-and-a-half lifting in the gym. In his mind he ll be ready when the call comes. But the call has to come.
Welts and Warriors general manager Bob Myers said they would have seriously considered signing Collins if their roster didn t have so many centers. The Warriors are currently carrying centers Andrew Bogut, Marreese Speights, Jermaine O Neal,Will Americans rise up against ObamaCare-, Festus Ezeli and rookie Dewayne Dedmon. The New York Daily News previously reported the New York Knicks also had interest in Collins. Myers, who was Collins agent before joining the Warriors front office, is hopeful Collins will get an opportunity to play this season.
There are a lot of good players who are on the cusp of being in or out of the NBA, Myers said. I think he will get a chance.
Collins played 32 games for the Boston Celtics last season and six games with the Washington Wizards. An NBA source said Collins is stronger than ever while waiting for a team to call. One NBA general manager said that if any team signs Collins, it will likely be in January after it has had more time to evaluate its roster.
It s his age that you got to take into consideration, one NBA general manager said.
Even if Collins isn t signed,cheap baseball jersey, Welts doesn t think the center s impact on the gay community will be lessened.
It doesn t diminish what he did in any way,cheap basketball jersey, shape or form,where to buy cheap nfl jerseys, Welts said. It doesn t diminish the courage it took and the long-term impact it will have. We all know what the end story is going to be. In an ideal world with all things being equal,Kenny Rogers- Dolly Parton and I didn't have an affair but we had 'tension', he would have a job. There s a lot of factors that go with a player that could be the 14th player on a roster. Maybe it s naiveté. Maybe it s being in the NBA my entire life, but there is a team out there that thinks he can make a difference.

[Bearbeiten] As Afghan Presidential Race Begins, Warlords Are Prominent -
Another technocrat is the soft-spoken former World Bank official and former finance minister, Ashraf Ghani Ahmadzai,Woman explains her reason for taking clothes off at the Pres, who came in fourth in 2009. In an unexpected move, his lesser-known brother also registered to run.
There's also the president's brother Qayoum Karzai, and Gul Agha Shirzai, a former provincial governor accused of drug trafficking and pedophilia. Former Foreign Minister Zalmai Rassoul is viewed by many as an early front-runner. Rassoul's running mate for second vice president is Habiba Sarabi, Afghanistan's first female provincial governor. There is one relatively unknown woman running for president, and a total of eight female vice presidential candidates. So many candidates came out of the woodwork at the last minute that the election office stayed open until midnight on Sunday to accommodate them all. Backroom talks have been going on for weeks as various power brokers tried to assemble winning coalitions. "Some of those who have joined last-minute [indicate] that the political horse-trading may have not worked," says Nader Nadery, head of the Free and Fair Election Foundation of Afghanistan. "It is a much more selfcentric political bargaining," he adds. So it comes as no surprise that in the end, Nadery says, 27 different tickets were registered. The Karzai Question One bit of intrigue is the question of whether President Karzai is supporting any of the candidates. Analysts say that they expect Karzai to ultimately back someone he sees as a safe successor who will both listen to him and look after his interests. For his part, Karzai says he will not support anyone. Of course, there is still the persistent concern that Karzai will somehow scuttle the elections and stay in office. For example, if there are serious security issues in the run-up to the April vote, Nadery says,cheap baseball jersey, Karzai might postpone the elections. It would be a risky move, however. The international community has staked significant amounts of future aid to Afghanistan on the country's holding free and fair elections next year. But even the notion of free and fair elections is a bit different in Afghanistan. Historically, Afghans vote based on directions they receive from tribal elders, religious leaders, powerful politicians or warlords. That's why there was such a scramble in the waning days of the candidate registration period as people negotiated over slates of running mates. Many of the presidential candidates do not have large constituencies of their own,Scarlett Johansson named Esquire’s sexiest woman alive (again),where to buy nfl jerseys, hence their selection of former warlords or leaders of ethnic groups who are believed to command large numbers of loyal followers. Despite their ethnic, religious and tribal differences,where to buy cheap nfl jerseys, there is one issue all the candidates seem to agree on: Afghanistan's need to sign a long-term security pact with the U.S. Almost every candidate has mentioned the issue in recent speeches. But at a news conference on Monday, Karzai said that he still has objections over provisions of the security deal, and he might not sign it �� leaving it to the next president to resolve.
[Bearbeiten] Tom Hanks Has Type 2 Diabetes
CBS Tom Hanks opens up to David Letterman about his health. Tom Hanks was promoting his latest film "Captain Phillips" on the "Late Show With David Letterman" Monday, when the 57-year-old actor revealed he has Type 2 Diabetes.
"I went to the doctor and he said, 'you know those high blood pressure levels you've been dealing with since you were 36? Well you've graduated,where to buy nfl jerseys, you've got Type 2 Diabetes, young man," Hanks opened up to Letterman.
Symptoms of the disease initially began in 1992 when Hanks packed on 30 pounds to play a baseball coach in "A League of Their Own."
In 2000, he dropped from 225 pounds to 170 pounds to play a man stranded on a desert island in "Castaway."
Hanks told Letterman, "My doctor said,Marco buys part of Internet technology company in St. Paul, 'Look, if you can weigh as much as you weighed in high school, you will essentially be completely healthy. You will not have Type 2 diabetes.' And then I said to her, 'Well, then,cheap basketball jersey, I'm gonna have Type 2 diabetes because there is no way I can weigh as much as I did in high school.'
Hanks jokingly told Letterman that he weighed just 96 pounds in high school.
CBS medical contributor Dr. Holly Phillips explained on "CBS This Morning," "In dramatic weight gain or dramatic weight loss, the equilibrium of the body is just completely off. So that may predispose him to developing Type 2 Diabetes later."

[Bearbeiten] The battle for West supremacy is on tonight in the NHL 0
(Jasen Vinlove, USA TODAY Sports) Eight days into the NHL season, it might not be too early to say tonight’s game between the St. Louis Blues and Chicago Blackhawks (8 ET,where to buy nfl jerseys, NBC Sports Network) will establish a front-runner in the Western Conference race.
“These teams dislike each other a ton, and that makes for hard and intense hockey,” NBC analyst Pierre McGuire said. “While it is early, you can never plant a seed early enough.”
Last season, the Blackhawks were 3-1-1 against the Blues. But the Blues picked up Derek Roy and Brenden Morrow as free agents, and their younger players are theoretically older and wiser. They might have narrowed the gap against the Blackhawks, even though Chicago won two Stanley Cup championships in the last four seasons.
“Each and every time Chicago and St. Louis play, it will be like a Game?7,” McGuire said.
How the teams stack up:
Overall:?The Blues are tougher to play against, while the Blackhawks have more offensive might.
Coaching: The Blues Ken Hitchcock has instilled a tough defensive mindset in his team. Chicago s Joel Quenneville likes to use team speed to pressure the opponent.
Defense: The Blackhawks, led by Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook, were statistically the league’s top defensive team last season. But the Blues might have the league’s deepest collection of defensemen. The Blues’ top six are Alex Pietrangelo, Jay Bouwmeester, Kevin Shattenkirk, Roman Polak, Barret Jackman and Jordan Leopold. The Blackhawks have Keith, Seabrook,Apollo Beach youngster fills shoeboxes with gifts for needy kids around the worl, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Johnny Oduya,What are Danica, Ricky and Junior up to while Chase drivers dominate rankings-,cheap baseball jersey, Nick Leddy and Michal Rozsival.
Forwards: With Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane leading the way, the Blackhawks have a more dynamic offense. But the Blues, led by David Backes, have a big, strong, defensive-minded group of forwards. Both teams are very comfortable playing in one-goal games.
Goaltending: Chicago’s Corey Crawford established his reputation by leading the Blackhawks to an NHL title. Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak pulled off a couple big upsets while with the Montreal Canadiens, but he still must prove he can carry a team all the way through the postseason.
Our prediction: 3-2 Blues

[Bearbeiten] Don't look now, but here comes a healthier RG3 in a weak div
The NFC East is there to be taken. Robert Griffin III is in position to take it. His goal is to take it. Four games into the season -- and at 1-3, heading into Washington's crucial game in Dallas Sunday night -- he believes he will do it.
Twelve weeks remain for him to heal more and play better. Not impossible, considering where he is now compared to the debacle of opening night.
MORE: | |
"When it comes to timing here, timing there, sometimes you might be a little bit off coming back from an injury like I had, Griffin told reporters after practice Wednesday. It was a rare admission that after four weeks, he was not the player he was at his peak last season. "You've gotta work through those growing pains.
Then again, he said of the time that has passed from Week 1 against the Eagles to the bye week and, now, the Cowboys' game, "The more time you have after it, the better it'll be.
Observers around the NFL agree -- both that he has shown the classic, unavoidable signs of rehab, and that those won't last forever.
"I just have too much respect for the game to think that he can come back from an injury like that and be the player he was so quickly, said Rich Gannon, a former league MVP, Super Bowl quarterback and now a CBS game analyst.
Gannon said this week that he has watched three of Griffin's games so far,where to buy nfl jerseys,Does Twitter Have a Terrorism Problem-, and he's not just speculating on how fast anyone can return from the torn ACL he suffered in January. "You can see that the speed of the game was an issue, his footwork was an issue, his movement and his ability to escape was an issue, Gannon said.
Plus,cheap baseball jersey, he pointed out, he had the same injury early in his career, with his first team, the Minnesota Vikings. Like Griffin, he fought to return in one offseason and did not miss a regular-season game -- and, he said, "It took a while to get your timing back and your rhythm back ... You're never completely comfortable and confident for that whole first year back.
"I had to play a little differently, he said.
That will not only help Griffin later in his career, said Steve Beuerlein, also a CBS game analyst, longtime NFL quarterback and knee-surgery veteran, it could help him this season.
"It's a year rehab ... there's no getting around that, Beuerlein said, adding, "I believe he's going to be a totally different quarterback next year, when he's a year healthier and a year stronger.
Robert Griffin III (AP Photo)
This season, he said, "I've been incredibly impressed. My admiration has just gone sky-high ... I think RG3 is gonna get strong stronger as the year goes along -- he'll get stronger and more confident, and the Shanahans (head coach Mike, offensive coordinator Kyle) will figure out a way to enhance what he is and what he can do even more. Beuerlein played for Mike Shanahan with the Raiders in the late 1980s.
The most favorable factor in it all, though, is the division competition -- even though Griffin and the elder Shanahan talked their way around that notion.
Yet they come off of their bye week and jump back into a division game,where to buy cheap nfl jerseys, against Dallas ... which is 2-3, tied with Philadelphia for first place, just a half-game ahead of Washington and, incredibly, only two games ahead of .
Griffin comes into the game, he said, "completely rejuvenated, and with praise for the very "Operation Patience" he rebelled against in training camp.
The proof comes not so much from his overall stats , many of which were compiled in garbage time in the first two games against the Eagles and Packers. (Beuerlein, though, thought that spoke well of Griffin's toughness: "He's found ways to gut it out in the second half when they were out of it; that shows me something.")
It was the sense that a little more of the RG3 of last season was on display in the next two games, the close loss to Detroit and the win over Oakland -- the explosive Griffin, the running threat, the one with flawless pocket presence and full command of his skills.
Mike Shanahan hinted at the return of that Griffin, if not Sunday night, then soon enough, based on what he's seen in person and, during the bye, on video.
"You see him being more comfortable with himself. You can see him taking advantage of those reps in game situations, he said. "I see him continually getting better and better as he gets the reps he needs.
Good enough to hit opponents with the full read-option package that was no factor in the terrible start? That depends on how Griffin feels, and Griffin talks as if he's getting there.
"If he's feeling good, we're gonna give him the opportunity to do a bunch of different things, Shanahan said,Veterans return on Honor Flight from Washington D.C., "and hopefully he plays at the level he's played at.
"For me, I always know I can make those plays when the opportunity arises, Griffin said, "and I did in the Oakland game. So hopefully, that will put everybody at ease, and we can move forward with the year.
And with winning a vulnerable division, behind a quarterback that began the season just as vulnerable.
[Bearbeiten] Sixth grade soccer players in Princeton, NJ will be wearing
AP Photo/Salina Journal,where to buy cheap nfl jerseys, Tom Dorsey A school district in New Jersey is going to new measures to keep their children from suffering head injuries playing sports. Soccer, field hockey and lacrosse uniforms for sixth graders in Princeton, New Jersey will now come complete with a new accessory this season: Protective headgear.

It will make Princeton the first in the state to introduce such a requirement,cheap basketball jersey, and the step has aroused criticism and praise alike, while sparking fears in districts that cannot afford such protection that Princeton athletes will have an unfair advantage and play may become more aggressive.
