BEIJING Deshaun Watson Jersey , Dec. 31 (Xinhua) -- China's manufacturing sector continued to expand in December, pointing to economic resilience in the country's factory sector.

 

The country's manufacturing purchasing managers' index (PMI) came in at 51.6 in December, slightly decelerating from 51.8 in November, according to National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) data released Sunday.

 

A reading above 50 indicates expansion, while below reflects contraction.

 

The index in December is on par with the annual average, pointing to a strong resilience in China's growth, according to NBS senior statistician Zhao Qinghe.

 

Sub-indices for production and new orders came in at 54 and 53.4, respectively J.J. Watt Jersey , down from 54.3 and 53.6 last month, but well above the boom-bust line of 50.

 

However, the sub-index of raw material inventory stood at 48 in December, down 0.4 points from last month, indicating continuously decreasing raw material inventory in the manufacturing sector.

 

Meanwhile, the sub-index of supplier deliveries declined 0.2 points month on month to 49.3, showing a slower delivery by raw material suppliers.

 

The manufacturing sector employed less people as the sub-index of employment dropped 0.3 percentage points month on month to 48.5 in December.

 

"Factory employment continued to contract slightly -- a mismatch with expanding output that might reflect the advance of automation," according to Tom Orlik Cheap Houston Texans Hats , Bloomberg chief Asia economist.

 

The country's manufacturing PMI has been in positive territory for 17 months in a row despite overall slower expansion this month.

 

The NBS data also showed that the country's non-manufacturing sector expanded faster in December, with non-manufacturing PMI coming in at 55 in December, up from 54.8 in November.

 

The service sector, which accounted for more than half of the country's gross domestic product, continued steady growth, with the sector's business activity index standing at 53.4 in December, well above the boom-bust line of 50, although declining 0.2 points month on month.

 

The new order index of the non-manufacturing businesses stood at 52 in December Cheap Houston Texans T-Shirts , up 0.2 points from a month ago. In breakdown, the new order index for the service sector increased slightly slower month on month to 50.9, and that for the construction sector rose at a faster pace to 58.1.

 

"Early indicators for December show China's economy pushing into 2018 with growth steady, if unspectacular," said Tom Orlik in a research note, as "the official purchasing managers' indexes show the manufacturing sector slowing slightly and the non-manufacturing sector picking up, driven mainly by construction."

 

"Growth remains remarkably robust, underpinned by resurgent global demand Cheap Houston Texans Hoodie , stimulus-boosted infrastructure spending, and a deleveraging program that remains more honored in the breach than the observance." Orlik said.

 

Sub-indices for production and new orders came in at 54 and 53.4, respectively, down from 54.3 and 53.6 last month, while new export orders and import accelerated, with indices gained 1.1 points and 0.2 points to 51.9 and 51.2, respectively, according to NBS senior statistician Zhao Qinghe.

 

"In the details Customized Houston Texans Jersey , output and new orders sub-indexes were both down slightly but still robustly in expansionary territory. New export orders picked up," Orlik said.

 

Bloomberg Economics expects a moderate slowdown of China's factory activity in 2018 as tailwinds from exports and infrastructure blow less strongly, and headwinds from deleveraging increase.

 

 

 

Shenzhen is ranked third among the top 10 most attractive Chinese cities to digital talents, according to a report on China’s current transformation towards a digital economy, which was jointly conducted by Tsinghua SEM Center for Internet Development and Governance (CIDG) and the workplace social media platform LinkedIn.

 

The report, released Wednesday, analyzed 720,000 registered users who were digital talents working in China over the past three years based on the talents’ work experience Cheap Houston Texans Jerseys , professional skills, signs of mobility and some other information.

 

The report shows that the distribution of digital talents has a significant positive correlation with the digitalization of a city’s economy. Shanghai, Shenzhen and Hangzhou are the three cities that have introduced the largest number of digital talents over the past three years.

 

Specifically, the roles of digital talents in China fit into six main categories, namely digital strategy management, in-depth analysis, product development, advanced manufacturing Breno Giacomini Limited Jersey , digital operations and digital marketing.

 

Around 50 percent of digital talents are working in basic ICT industries, such as Internet and telecommunications companies, while the remaining talents are working in traditional industries like manufacturing, finance and consumer goods.

 

The report lists the 10 Chinese cities best at attracting such talents: Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Hangzhou Corey Moore Limited Jersey , Chengdu, Suzhou, Nanjing, Wuhan and Xi’an. These cities also lead China in digital economy because they attract digital talents with a variety of advantages due to each city’s unique development focus.

 

For instance, Beijing and Hangzhou have more digital talents with advantages in big data analysis, while the digital talents in Shanghai and Shenzhen mainly work in the manufacturing industry. Additionally, the consumer goods and finance industries in Shenzhen and Guangzhou possess more digital talents than other cities.

 

In a broader perspective, the report points out that the country’s economic digitalization has entered a new stage where the development focus ha When constipat.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs designated former All-Star Carlos Marmol for assignment on Tuesday, parting ways with the struggling reliever. Youth Sabres Jerseys . Chicago has 10 days to trade or release him or send him outright to the minors if he clears waivers. The 30-year-old Marmol was 2-4 with two saves and a 5.86 ERA in 31 appearances this season, striking out 32 while walking 21 batters. An All-Star as a setup man in 2008, Marmol became the teams closer in late 2009 and compiled 117 saves, third on the Cubs all-time list. He was 23-32 with a 3.50 ERA in 483 appearances in parts of eight seasons with Chicago and is just the fifth player in franchise history with 20 or more saves in three straight seasons, along with Ryan Dempster, Randy Myers, Lee Smith and Bruce Sutter. His best year as closer was 2010, when he finished with 38 saves in 43 chances. He posted a 2.55 ERA with 138 strikeouts and 52 walks that season and followed that up with 34 saves in 2011. But he blew 10 chances that year and posted a 4.01 ERA. Fans patience with him started to wear out, and he was booed at Wrigley Field in recent years. It was clear management was ready to part ways, too. The Cubs had a deal in place that would have sent Marmol to the Los Angeles Angels for Dan Haren last winter, but that fell through. They also signed Kyuji Fujikawa, a longtime closer in Japan, but like Marmol, he struggled. He also suffered a season-ending elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery. The Cubs closer now is Kevin Gregg, the man Marmol replaced in 2009. He has converted all 11 save opportunities after signing a minor league deal with Chicago in April. Besides designating Marmol, the Cubs released third baseman Ian Stewart, who had been at Triple-A Iowa. He was suspended two weeks earlier for ripping the organization on Twitter. The Cubs also selected the contract of outfielder Brian Bogusevic from Iowa on Tuesday. He was batting .319 (83-for-260) with 10 home runs and 32 RBIs in 78 games with Iowa. Robin Lehner Jersey .

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Brad Underwood embraces the rich history at Oklahoma State. http://www.authenticshopredskins.com/Womens-Justin-Rogers-Redskins-Jersey/ .One of the Big 12s three new mens basketball coaches, Underwood takes over a program built by Henry Iba and Eddie Sutton. Though Oklahoma States previous coach, Travis Ford, was successful by many standards, unhappy fans stopped coming to games, forcing the Cowboys to make a move.Sutton, who still sometimes sits in the front row at home games, led the Cowboys to Final Fours in 1995 and 2004.Thats why I came here, Underwood said. Thats why I wanted to be a part of this.Underwood, Texas Techs Chris Beard and TCUs Jamie Dixon join a conference that is coming off one of its best years, with Oklahoma having reached the Final Four and Kansas, Iowa State and West Virginia spending time in the top 10.Beard steps into a pressure situation, too. Tubby Smith led Tech to the NCAA Tournament last season, then he took the job at Memphis. Beard said he thought Texas Techs run last season was one of the best stories in college basketball.Ive got so much respect for coach Smith and the job that he did here, Beard said. The foundation is solid. Our job is to try to take it to the next level.Dixon, who spent 13 years as head coach at Pittsburgh before heading to TCU, said he likes what TCUs administration has done to put him in position to be competitive.We had a lot of great coaches here over the years that I dont think had the resources put in place that we have now, Dixon said. I think thats exciting for us. Weve got a whole different amount of involvement.AKOLDA MANYANGOklahomas 7-foot center was kicked off the team earlier this month after being accused of aggravated robbery in Minnesota.You hate seeing young men make decisions that dont help them moving forward, Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger said. Were just pulling for AK in that sense. The team is way secondary to that.Manyang was in line to fill some of the minutes vacated by Ryan Spangler, who is on the Oklahoma City Thunders summer league roster.JOSH JACKSONKansas next big thing is Josh Jackson. You wont catch him acting like it.The small forward from San Diego was the McDonalds All-American game co-MVP and was part of the FIBA U-17 World Championship team in 2014 and the U19 World Championship team in 2015.Kansas coach Bill Self said Jackson has a good attitude and doesnt seek attention.The feeling that I get from Josh is that he just wants to be a college kid, he said. Of course, hes not going to be a college kid very long. Certainly, he wants us in every way that we possibly can, to protect and shield him from all the talk that could potentially go on. Hes not caught up in it.SWITCHEROOBeard left Arkansas-Little Rock for UNLV, then changed his mind a few weeks later and took the job at Texas Tech. Beard is from Texas, he was an assistant at Tech under Bobby Knight and Pat Knight, and his three daughters were already in Texas.It wasnt an easy decision, Beard said. It was difficult. The timing was terrible. I had a lot of respect for the people at UNLV, and we were 100 percent committed to trying to get the job done there, but sometimes in life, you get a special opportunity.SIX DRAFTEDSix players from the Big 12 were selected in the draft: Oklahomas Buddy Hield and Isaiah Cousins; Iowa States Georges Niang and Abdel Nader; Baylors Taurean Prince and Kansas Cheick Diallo. Among those not drafted were Kansas Perry Ellis and Wayne Selden and Texas Isaiah Taylor. Ellis has signed as a free agent with the Dallas Mavericks.GIANT KILLERSTwo of the new coaches made splashes with mid-majors before taking their new jobs. Oklahoma States Underwood led Stephen F. Austin to a win over West Virginia in this years NCAA Tournament, while Texas Techs Beard led Arkansas-Little Rock past Purdue.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter (at)CliffBruntAP http://www.authenticshopredskins.com/Authentic_Matt-Jones_Redskins_Jersey/ . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. http://www.authenticshopredskins.com/Authentic_Derek-Carrier_Redskins_Jersey/ .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. http://www.authenticshopredskins.com/Authentic_Trent-Murphy_Redskins_Jersey/ . Despite the cost, effort and an improved steroid test, its possible that very few -- if any -- positives will be detected, Dr. Richard Budgett told The Associated Press in an interview. "We just dont know what the results from Torino will be," Budgett said. INDIANAPOLIS -- The stats still look bad for the Indianapolis Colts offensive line.The game tape is finally starting to become more palatable.After allowing a league-high 25 sacks and seeing franchise quarterback Andrew Luck get knocked around dozens more times in the first seven games, this young group is fighting back.Were not where we started at, but I think all five guys are starting to put it together, rookie center Ryan Kelly said earlier this week after another solid performance.Nobody will mistake this starting unit with the leagues best -- or even with those underrated offensive lines who kept Peyton Manning almost spotless for most of his career.But they are clearly making progress.Two weeks ago, at Houston, the Colts linemen paved the way for Frank Gore to become the first Colts 100-yard runner in 56 games.Last week, against a Tennessee defense that has been among the leagues best in sacks, the offensive line held up reasonably well again.While Luck went down twice, as he has in every game this season, the franchise quarterback took only seven hits. Theyve even be cutting down those pesky penalties .The Colts (3-4) did all that despite using five starting lineups in five weeks while using at least two rookies in each game.I think those guys played a great game and I think it showed with our playmakers and the way they performed, left guard Jack Mewhort said after sitting out the Titans game with an injured triceps. It was a great game, but we still have a lot of areas we need to improve on.Mewhort hopes to return Sunday against an opportunistic Kansas City defense .If the recent progression indicates anything, its this: Perhaps Indys offseason investment is starting to pay dividends.With Anthony Castonzo holding down the tackle job for the sixth consecutive season and Mewhort back at guard, general manager Ryan Grigson figured he had a left side foundation on which he could build upon.Grigson drafted Kelly in the first round, hoping to solidify the most unstable position throughout Lucks first four pro seasons. Kelly has not disappointed.His game isnt perfect, hed be the first one to tell you that, coach Chuck Pagano said.Hes making somme mistakes like everyone else but the sirens arent going off at that position, which is a good thing. http://www.authenticshopredskins.com/Authentic_Dustin-Hopkins_Redskins_Jersey/. Indy is still trying to sort out its right side.While veteran Joe Reitz has started five games at tackle, the Colts (3-4) appear to have found a gem in fifth-round draft pick Joe Haeg, who has played well with two starts at right tackle, one at right guard and one at left guard.Joe Haeg is a perfect example of a guy who comes in, keeps his head down and works and studies, Mewhort said. I think that says a lot about him and his character.The early returns could give Haeg the inside track to becoming the fourth piece in Indys long-term puzzle.Theres no heir apparent yet for the fifth and final piece.Denzelle Good, a second-year player, has had mixed results in his five starts at right guard. Seventh-round draft pick Austin Blythe has one start in place of Good, and its not yet clear how third-round pick LeRaven Clark fits into the plan. Clark has played in three games, but has not started yet.But now that the Colts are putting things together on tape, they need to see something else -- results on paper, too.We watched the film as a group with the running backs as well and we saw some really good things and we saw some things we need to improve on, Castonzo said. As a whole, we felt pretty good about our performance.Game notes Mewhort and defensive tackle Henry Anderson (knee) did not practice Thursday after doing limited work Wednesday. Receiver T.Y. Hilton (hip) and inside linebacker DQwell Jackson (rest) also sat out Thursday. ... Tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle), defensive end Kendall Langford (knee), outside linebacker Curt Maggitt (ankle) and receiver Chester Rogers (foot and hamstring) all missed practice for the second straight day. ...

On Tuesday, Ottawa placed forward Cory Conacher and defenceman Joe Corvo on waivers as trade rumours swirl around the Senators. LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- Cheers rose around Louisvilles stadium Saturday evening as the video screen flashed Pitts 43-42 upset of Clemson, an ironic moment considering the No. 5 Cardinals couldnt get on the scoreboard themselves against Wake Forest.Their fortunes had changed several hours later after a 44-12 rout that might also improve Louisvilles playoff outlook.A wild weekend featuring upset losses by the No. 3 Tigers , No. 2 Michigan and No. 4 Washington shook up the rankings and vaulted Louisville three spots to No. 3, where it was in late September. Whether similar reshuffling occurs when playoff rankings are updated Tuesday night remains to be seen; the Cardinals (9-1, 7-1 Atlantic Coast Conference, No. 6 CFP) are focused only on themselves entering another challenge Thursday night at Houston (8-2).We just need to win our games, quarterback Lamar Jackson said after accounting for one touchdown against the Demon Deacons. We cant worry about that (rankings) right now. We just have to play Houston. We werent really trying to worry about whos going to win, whos going to lose, we just had to play our game. It was a close game with us, and anything can happen.Clemson still holds the tiebreaker over Louisville after its Oct. 1 victory over the Cardinals and can clinch the Atlantic Division title by beating Wake Forest on Saturday. But Louisville is where it wanted to be in the playoff picture and aims to keep going.Louisvilles latest victory almost symbolized its pattern of following dominating wins -- most of which were decided early -- with tense outcomes against heavy ACC underdogs. What was different against Wake Forest was that the Cardinals dominated late and got things started behind someone other than Jackson, their Heisman Trophy front-runner.Wake Forest built a 12-0 lead by converting three first-half fumbles into field goals, limiting Jacksons passing lanes andd sacking him four times. Laquon Treadwell Jersey. Louisville turned to running back Brandon Radcliff in the third quarter, and he shifted momentum with three TDs as the Cardinals scored 41 points over the final 22 1/2 minutes.It was tough for us, said Radcliff, whose 55-yard TD run started the scoring deluge. We were trying to get our momentum. We know were a great offensive team and it takes just one play for us to get back in rhythm. Thats what we were trying to do the whole time.Jackson contributed a short TD pass late to avoid being held scoreless for the first since last November against Virginia. The sophomore combined for 298 of Louisvilles 491 yards.Its good for him to have a game like this, where it wasnt just so easy, coach Bobby Petrino said. Its only the fourth time this year he had to finish the whole game, so I think its good.Louisvilles defense deserves the biggest nod for holding Wake Forest to field goals before yielding just 37 second-half yards and 214 overall, along with seven sacks. That wasnt easy considering it spent more than 38 minutes on the field and had no time for scoreboard watching.Petrino says he didnt learn Pitt had beaten Clemson or that USC was leading Washington until afterward (the Trojans won 26-13). He seemed happier that his team avoided becoming upset victims on a day of upheaval in the top 10.Louisville faces a similar task with just a few days to prepare for Houston, which won here 34-31 last season. While the Cougars no doubt aim to play spoiler, the Cardinals seem prepared for this latest hurdle after clearing several in recent weeks.Thats a pretty good team they have, so we just have to be ready, Jackson said. We just have to go down there and fight hard.---More AP college football: collegefootball.ap.org Jerseys NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys From China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys NFL Jerseys China ' ' '

GENEVA -- The four British soccer federations were fined Monday by FIFA for displaying poppies at World Cup qualifying matches in November to honor their war dead. David Silva Jersey .Englands federation must pay 45,000 Swiss francs ($43,800) for the display of a political symbol at a home match against Scotland on Nov. 11. Scotland was fined 20,000 Swiss francs ($19,500).In other decisions, Romania was punished for a firework thrown at Poland striker Robert Lewandowski, Greece was fined for a fan banner against Bosnia-Herzegovina which referred to the Srebrenica massacre, and Chile was sanctioned again because of the anti-gay slurs chanted by its fans.England and Scotland defied FIFA advice and its rules against the use of political, religious or personal symbols on kit and in stadiums, and players wore black armbands embroidered with poppies.A pre-match ceremony also commemorated British soldiers on the anniversary of the World War I armistice.Wales and Northern Ireland then followed with similar displays at their home World Cup qualifiers the following day.With these decisions, it is not our intention to judge or question specific commemorations as we fully respect the significance of such moments in the respective countries, each one of them with its own history and background, FIFA disciplinary panel chairman Claudio Sulser said in a statement.However, keeping in mind that the rules need to be applied in a neutral and fair manner across FIFAs 211 member associations, the display, among others, of any political or religious symbol is strictly prohibited.Englands fine is the same as that imposed on Iran last month, after religious ceremonies were conducted in the stadium in Tehran before hosting South Korea in a World Cup qualifier.FIFAs rules prohibiting symbolism in stadiums were drafted and approved by the four British federations, who are members of soccers rule-making panel known as IFAB.Still, the England soccer federation has argued its ceremonial use of poppies is non-political, and it intends to appeal to FIFA.It is disappointing that FIFA has not recognized the sentiment of the poppy, which is not a political symbol, British sports minister Tracey Crouch said in a statement Monday. Poppies are a poignant tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of our servicemen and women, and footballers and fans alike should be able to wear them with pride..Wales and Northern Ireland were fined 20,000 Swiss francs ($19,500) and 15,000 Swiss francs ($14,600), respectively.With FIFA seeking to clarify its rules last month, it also prosecuted a retroactive case against Ireland for a political symbol on players shirts at a friendly match seven months earlier.The March 25 game in Dublin against Switzerland commemorated the 1916 Easter Rising of Irelands rebellion against British rule.FIFA fined the Irish soccer federation 5,000 Swiss francs ($4,785).The Romanian federation was fined 95,000 Swiss francs ($92,500) and barred from using the National Stadium in Bucharest for a World Cup qualifier against Denmark on March 26.A firework exploded close to Lewandowskis feet as Poland prepared to defend a second-half corner during a 3-0 win in Bucharest on Nov. 11. The match was stopped for several minutes, and the Bayern Munich forward returned after treatment and scored two late goals.FIFA fined the Greek federation 80,000 Swiss francs ($77,800) for several incidents during a home qualifier against Bosnia last month, including the offensive banner.The slogan Noz, zica, Srebrenica (Knife, wire, Srebrenica in Serbian) was displayed by Greek fans, which have traditional ties with Serbia, reflecting their shared Orthodox religion.In 1995, more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed in Srebrenica by ethnic Serb forces during a four-year war after the break-up of Yugoslavia.After the incident last month, the Greek soccer federation apologized and condemned the unacceptable posting of a banner with fascist content.FIFA also imposed a fine of 60,000 Swiss francs ($58,400) on Ukraine for fans offensive chants during a friendly against Serbia in Kharkiv last month.Anti-gay slurs have been an issue FIFA has tackled across Latin America, and Chile now cannot use its national stadium in Santiago for its next two World Cup qualifiers. Chile was also was fined 30,000 Swiss francs ($29,200).FIFA said additional fines against Argentina (30,000 Swiss francs; $29,200), Colombia and Panama (25,000 Swiss francs; $24,300 each), and Mexico and Venezuela (20,000 Swiss francs; $19,500 each) were for various incidents involving unsporting conduct by fans, including homophobic chants in some instances.For other cases of fan misconduct, fines were imposed on Poland (35,000 Swiss francs; $34,000) and Bosnia (25,000 Swiss francs; $24,300 each).Honduras is barred from using its Olympic Stadium in San Pedro Sula for a March 28 qualifier against Costa Rica. It follows incidents at a Nov. 11 match at home to Panama, and FIFA also fined the Honduras federation 40,000 Swiss francs ($39,000). Saul Niguez Jersey .

Goals from Etienne Capoue and Roberto Pereyra saw Watford earn a 2-1 victory over defending Premier League champion Leicester City at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon.Watford (5-3-4) got off to a flyer, as Capoue netted 32 seconds in, capitalising on Troy Deeneys instinctive flick-on to blast the ball home. It didnt take long for the hosts to double their lead on a wonderful curled effort from Pereyra. He cut in from the wing and left the Leicester keeper with no chance in the 12th minute.Riyad Mahrez soon restored hope for Leicester (3-3-6) from the spot after Jamie Vardy drew a penalty, leaving the result in the balance. Nolito Jersey. A fast-paced encounter ensued, with Watford going close to extending the gap several times. The best chances fell to Nordin Amrabat after Deeney teed him up perfectly at the end of the first period, and Pereyra after the restart. He placed his free header straight at the keeper.Leicester really ramped up the pressure in the closing stages but never came too close to an equaliser. In fact, it was the Hornets who looked more likely throughout.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Steve Mason Jersey . -- The Florida Gators arent in the mood to pick apart a road win in the Southeastern Conference, especially after last weeks ugly loss.No matter what they might need to fix.Jordan Scarlett ran for a 4-yard touchdown with Eddy Pineiro adding a pair of field goals as No. 23 Florida held off Vanderbilt 13-6 Saturday.A wise man once said, `you even have to bring your ugly babies home from the hospital, and that was ugly, Florida coach Jim McElwain said. In fact that might have been what someone told my dad when I was born. But I feel really good that our guys found a way to win.Florida (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) came up with two interceptions and two sacks on a day where the Gators defense otherwise struggled against one of the nations worst offenses with three starting linemen missing most of the game.Ralph Webb ran for 110 yards as Vanderbilt outgained Florida 265-236 in total offense. The Commodores (2-3, 0-2) had a final chance to force overtime until Nick Washington intercepted a Wade Freebeck pass with 54 seconds left sealing the Gators win.The Gators never trailed and led 10-3 after Scarlett scored on a 4-yard touchdown run, and Pineiro kicked a 42-yard field goal as the half expired. Pinero added a 26-yarder with 8:17 left.Florida had a chance to pad its lead after Vanderbilt punter Sam Loy fumbled the snap and lost the ball with 5:07 left with the Commodores trailing 13-6. But Austin Appleby fumbled the snap on second-and-goal at the Vanderbilt 1 with 2:56 left giving the Commodores one last chance.Its beyond me how you fumble the ball on a quarterback sneak at the end of the game, McElwain said. It happened, and yet our defense stepped up. They had to step up twice.THE TAKEAWAYFlorida: This set up as the perfect trap game for the Gators between Tennessee and LSU against an opponent theyve dominated over the years. The Gators had the majority of the 30,565 fans in Florida colors and still came out sluggish. Still, the Gators take home their third straight win and 25th in the last 26 games in this series. McElwain complimented the turnout by the Gators fans.I really think it had an effect on one of those third downs when they were coming out of their end zone, McElwain said.Vanderbilt: The Commodores finally showed signs of the stingy defense that ranked in the top 30 nationally in a lot of categories last season. Better yet, Webb gashed a defense that had been giving up only 76.5 yards rushing.This group is playing to win, Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said. Were not satisfied with moral victories. There are no moral victories in football. This team is growing up and playing extremely hard.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Gators barely stayed inside the Top 25 after being routed by Tennessee . Voters will have to decide how impressive Florida was against Vanderbilt.THE REPLACEMENTSThe Gators played most of the game without three starting defensive lineman. Senior defensive tackle Joey Ivie missed the game with a thumb injury that will sideline him at least a month. Defensive ends Bryan Cox Jr. and Jordan Sherit played sparingly with injuries. Without them, sophomore defensive tackle Khairi Clark made his second career start, and defensive ends CeCe Jefferson (sophomore) and Jabari Zuniga (freshman) saw extensive time.Obviously, we were missing some guys, but I feel like we played well, Gators defensive tackle Caleb Brantley said.DEFENSIVE IMPROVEMENTVanderbilt had forced only two three-and-outs in each of the Commodores past three games. The Commodores opened this game forcing the Gators three-and-out on their first two drives. Adam Butler also had two sacks on one drive for a defense that hadnt managed more than one sack in each of the past three games.UP NEXTFlorida: The Gators return home to host LSU, the only SEC team to beat the Gators during the regular season last year in winning the Eastern Division.Vanderbilt: The Commodores visit Kentucky still looking for their first SEC win.---Online:AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org and AP-Top 25 Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/AP-Top25Follow Teresa M.

All Blacks prop Owen Franks should count himself extremely luck after he was cleared of an alleged eye-gouge on Wallabies lock Kane Douglas in Bledisloe II. Nike Free Run 5.0 Womens .Thats the opinion of former Wallabies winger Cameron Shepherd, who told ESPNs Scrum5 podcast he thought the incident had been swept up like it didnt happen.Referencing a similar incident that saw Argentina forward Mariano Galarza suspended for nine weeks?at last years Rugby World Cup, Shepherd said Franks didnt even have the excuse he couldnt see what he was doing.As far as the Franks eye-gouge, you cant be putting your hands up around someones eyes, Shepherd said.And not only that, hes looking at him; so its not like his head is down in a maul or a ruck and he cant see what hes doing. And then after his hand is removed from the eyes he comes underneath and it almost looks as if he goes for a choke. Now I would never say thats 100 percent what hes doing, but thats what it looks like and thats the way its interpreted.Now look apologies but I cant remember the two people in question with this case but when New Zealand played Argentina at the Rugby World Cup 12 months ago, one of the Argentinian forwards lashed out with his hands towards the face of one of the New Zealand players and he got nine weeks for doing that.Now Ive watched both those bits of footage side by side at Fox Sports during the week, and look Franks should have been in a lot more trouble than this getting swept up like it didnt happen.Shepherd also spoke of the Wallabies defensive woes, telling Scrum5 hed heard rumours Michael Cheika had been putting his squad through a heavy workload the day before each Test match.Ive thought on top of everything from the last few weeks, the boys look tired. I think theyre being over-trained at the moment. I think Cheika is so nervous about being under-prepared that hes doing too much.A few sources close to the camp have told me that training sessions, even the day before the game, are going for two hours. Now if youre still prepping for two hours the day before a Test match, youre not in the right mindset anyway; you know that should be where you just put a little bit of the polish on what youve done during the week.So to me, yeah its mindset. And I think sometimes our structures in defence arent very good. But I think that our change in (defensive) attitude has only come about because the guys are so tired, theyre rundown and mentally theyre already battling that whole issue of pressure of beating the All Blacks. So all those things combined I think are having an effect.Listen to the full ESPN Scrum5 podcast here.

NEW YORK -- Since Christina McHale won a first-set tiebreaker against her idol Serena Williams at Wimbledon last month, shes played three tournaments and World Team Tennis to prepare for the U.S. Open.Before considering a rematch, McHale needs to defeat first-round opponent Mona Barthel of Germany on Monday.McHale hasnt advanced past the third round of a Grand Slam, but her confidence grew after a 6-7 (7), 6-2, 6-4 loss to the eventual Wimbledon champion, who earned a record-tying 22nd major singles title.There were a lot of positives I took from my Serena match, McHale said. The first and most important for me being that I can compete with the best. That match has really motivated me to keep working and improving.McHale served well early and kept Williams off balance in winning the tiebreaker during the second-round match at Wimbledon. In the second set, McHale went up 40-15 on serve, with two chances to take a 3-0 lead.But she double-faulted and Williams ran off 11 straight points. McHale also double-faulted on a game point and Williams attacked her second serves to break for 5-4.It was a lesson in thought management for the 24-year-old McHale.You think about the big picture all of a sudden, Billie Jean King said. Your brain goes from one ball at a time to, `Oh crap, Im up playing for 3-0 and Im up a set already. I should win this.McHale played nearly every day for two weeks in early August for the New York Empire in the World Team Tennis league co-founded by King. The tennis great knows its important to stay focused and relaxed during critical points.Serena talks about being in the zone, King said. Everybody understands that means stay in the present and be in the now. It sounds so easy. Before the point is how you tee it up and get ready. Seventy-five percent of the time in the match, you are not hitting a ball.McHale started playing tennis in Hong Kong, where she lived from age 3 to 8 and learned to speak Mandarin. She also was a competitive swimmer growing up in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. She turned pro in 2010, and last year, she moved to South Florida to train at the USTAA National Tennis Center in Boca Raton. Nike Free 3.0 V5 Clearance. er older sister Lauren graduated from North Carolina, where she played tennis for the Tar Heels. Lauren is engaged to American tennis player Ryan Harrison.Christina reached a career-high singles ranking of No. 24 in 2012. Shes coached by Jorge Todero, who has guided her the last five years. McHale has posted wins over former No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki and Grand Slam champions Victoria Azarenka, Petra Kvitova and Svetlana Kuznetsova.Hes gotten me to use my forehand more, McHale said of the Argentine. I try to hit as many forehands as I can, go to my strength in the pressure moments.Shes currently ranked 55th with a 31-20 record this year. Her first serve percentage is just 59 percent, with 64 percent of those points won. Shes had 119 aces and 136 double-faults.After Wimbledon, McHale upset eighth-seeded Monica Niculescu at the Citi Open in Washington in mid-July. She then lost to Jessica Pegula, daughter of Buffalo Bills and Sabres owners Terry and Kim Pegula, 7-5, 6-2.She bowed out in the second round in Montreal at the Rogers Cup, but joined Asia Muhammad to defeat the top-ranked doubles team of Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza 6-3, 6-4 in the quarterfinals before losing in the semifinals.McHale, who recently reached the second round in Cincinnati, is among 19 American women in the U.S. Open. Next up is Barthel, who she beat in matchups in Seoul in 2014 and Madrid in 2015.If McHale gets past her, shell play the winner of Roberta Vinci vs. Anna-Lena Friedsam. Vinci took out Williams in the semifinals of the U.S. Open last year, ending the quest for a calendar year Grand Slam.Patrick McEnroe, who coached the Empire and McHale, calls her a grinder.Shes right there. Ive always been impressed with her work ethic, said McEnroe, who previously helped McHale while leading the USTA player developmental program. From the first time I saw her, shes really been committed to putting in the work to be the best she can be.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Camiseta Aviles Hurtado . -- Kansas City Chiefs running back Spencer Ware has been ruled out of Sundays game against Jacksonville with a concussion, though wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and defensive tackle Jaye Howard will be available.Maclin returned to practice Friday after tweaking his hamstring earlier in the week, while Howard was back after dealing with a hip injury he suffered last weekend against Indianapolis.Alex Smith had already been ruled out with a head injury. Nick Foles will start at quarterback.Others who have been ruled out include offensive lineman Parker Ehinger, who has a knee injury that could be season ending, and cornerback D.J. White, who is recovering from a fractured hand.Offensive lineman Mitchell Schwartz, who was dealing with a sore ankle, and linebacker Derrick Johnson, who missed time with a sore hamstring, practiced Friday and will be available against the Jaguars.Ware is a substantial loss for the Chiefs (5-2), though, not only because hes having a breakthrough season but also because Jamaal Charles has been placed on injured reserve after having his meniscus repaired.Chiefs coach Andy Reid said Friday hes unsure whether Charles will be back this season.I havent even got that far, he said. I cant tell you that.The Chiefs will face the Jaguars with Charcandrick West getting the bulk of the carries, and Bishop Sankey spelling him -- despite only signing with Kansas City this week. The 2014 second-round draft pick of Tennessee had been on the Patriots practice squad before getting the call.Reid is confident Sankey knows enough of the offense to help out Sunday.He had a lot thrown at him. It was like learning French overnight, Reid said. Its a tough deal but he hung in there and I thought he did a respectable job.The Chiefs could have brought up Darrin Reaves from the practice squad, but he tweaked a groin muscle before they were able to make the move. Reaves was with the team all through training camp, had a couple of solid preseason games, and would have offered a much better grasp of the offense.It was bad timing, Reid said, because hes a pretty good little player. He tweaked that thing, so we didnt have an opportunity to bring him up.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Camisetas Personalizadas Colombia . 9. Price, heading to the 2014 Olympics for Canada, was named the First Star after posting wins in three starts with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage. Camiseta Felipe Pardo . Robredo, ranked No. 16, bounced back from an upset loss to Leonardo Mayer in the second round of the Royal Guard Open in Chile last week to down Carreno Busta in 1 hour, 25 minutes. On a day filled mostly with qualifying matches, fifth-seeded Marcel Granollers of Spain also entered the second with a 7-5, 3-6, 6-2 win over Aljaz Bedene of Slovenia, while Guido Pella of Argentina defeated Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 7-6 (6), 6-4 to advance. http://www.camisetacolombiamundial.com/ . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Before the gold, before the glory, there were tears.From the coaches.Long before the stunning exhibition on Thursday night that earned her the Olympic all-around title, Simone Biles was just a prodigy in the USA Gymnastics developmental program. She and coach Aimee Boorman would travel regularly to the Karolyi Ranch about an hour north of their gym in suburban Houston. There national team coordinator Martha Karolyi and her staff would offer pointers not just to the young girls but the adults entrusted with harnessing all that talent and turning them into champions.And, Karolyi being Karolyi, the message didnt always come across with a hug and a smile.(The coaches) would go back to our rooms with each other and we would cry, Boorman said. Martha said, `I made you guys cry? `Oh Martha you have no idea.Boorman can laugh about it now that shes through it. When she woke up on Friday morning, she was the coach of the Olympic champion, one who has a legitimate shot at leaving Rio with a record five gold medals by the time event finals are over next Tuesday.Its a path Boorman and Biles carved out carefully, one helped in part by the system Karolyi put in place when she took over in 2001.There was a time where gymnasts eyeing the elite level would have to move to one of the few gyms in the country capable of giving them the proper training. It led to what Karolyi called little fights between private clubs instead of fostering a sense of team unity, so she scrapped it. Karolyi figured if she could find a way to guide the coaches as well as the athletes early in their respective careers, then the girls could stay home and still receive the mentoring needed to flourish.We wanted to give the right guidance for the young and upcoming coaches who never had anything to do with our program, Karolyi said.The proof of its success can be measured in two ways: in the 91 world championship and Olympic medals (and counting) the U.S. has won under Karolyis guidance and the length of the relationships between most members of the Final Five and their coaches.Boorman and Biles have been together 13 years. Five-time Olympic medalist Aly Raisman and Mihai Brestyan a dozen. Laurie Hernandez and Maggie Haney 11. Madison Kocian and Laurent Landi nearly a decade.Haney considers herself and Hernandez the poster children for the Talent Opportunity Program (TOPs) run by USA Gymnastics. Camiseta William Tesillo. Weve literally grown through the system, Haney said. There is guidance at the top and it spreads out from there.It also created a sense of camaraderie, one where the coaches no longer get anxious when theyre in the training gym together. Those early difficult days under Karolyis tutelage bonded them in ways that resonate today.The girls talk about being a family, Boorman said. But honestly the coaches are too because weve been through this process together.It can also create its own unique challenges. Given the amount of time they spend together -- 30 hours a week or more -- for months and years on end, there are bound to be issues. Asked if there were times when she wanted to tell the exacting, no-nonsense Brestyan to get lost and Raisman just laughs.There are times I wanted to, Raisman said. There are times its just hard. There are times I didnt feel like doing it but he kept pushing. And I know he does that so I dont back down.In that way Brestyan can best be described as Karolyi Lite. Theyve know each other since coaching in Romania, and hes worked extensively at Karolyis side at the ranch for years as a mentor to coaches and athletes alike.The moment you get there, you get remolded for what youre looking for, he said. Theyre coming with the commitment, with the desire but theyre doing a lot of mistakes. We try to share our knowledge, our experiences, our mistakes to put them directly in the line you need to look and you need to go.It can be grueling and sometimes thankless work. Yet it does have its benefits.Rather than file into a tunnel underneath Rio Olympic Arena following the womens gymnastics team final, Raisman ducked away and sprinted straight for Brestyan, slipping the medal around his neck before he could protest. Two nights later after finishing runner-up to Biles in the all-around finals, Raisman did it again, paying tribute to the man who for a dozen years been equal parts mentor, coach and friend.The gesture was not lost on Brestyan. Her drive brought them together. The system and their dedication kept them together.After the results, (usually) the coaches, they dont exist, Brestyan said. Thats a hard feeling for us. But the moment before that when shes winning is the best in the world.

Sri Lanka U-19s 300 (Fernando 138, Jayalath 67, Green 3-59) beat England U-19s 276 (Pope 87, Hankins 79, P de Silva 3-39) by 24 runsScorecard Avishka Fernando hit his second century in consecutive matches as Sri Lankas Under-19s completed a 3-0 whitewash in the Royal London one-day series with a 24-run win in Canterbury. Adidas NMD Czech .But England went down fighting, as Surrey wicketkeeper-batsman Ollie Pope hit a defiant 88 from 78 balls with good support from Gloucestershires George Hankins and Somersets Dom Bess.Fernando followed the 117 he scored at Chelmsford on Saturday with 138 from 134 balls, sharing an opening partnership of 149 with Dilan Jayalath.England fought back well later in the Sri Lanka innings, with three wickets for Ben Green and two each for George Panayi and Ben Twohig as the tourists slipped from 256 for one to 300 all out - the last five wickets falling for nine in the space of 17 balls.England struggled to 66 for 3 in reply but Hankins followed the 98 he made in Chelmsford with a composed 79.His departure after a stand of 69 with Pope seemed likely to end the chase at 178 for five. But Pope and Bess had other ideas, putting on 80 in eight overs for the seventh wicket to give the Sri Lankans a few jitters.It took a sharp piece of fielding which was typical of the high standards Sri Lanka have set throughout the series to run out Pope as he tried to complete an ambitious two, and the innings lost momentum after that with Bess left unbeaten on 33 from 22 balls. Adidas NMD Human Race CZ .Y. - General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big man and confirmed the team worked out centre Jason Collins, who would become the first openly gay active NBA player if signed.

MILWAUKEE -- The Pittsburgh Pirates are red hot heading to Chicago. But their postseason aspirations could hinge on medical examinations off the field over the coming days.Ivan Nova threw six sharp innings before leaving early because of a hurting left hamstring and the Pirates hit three solo homers to rally past the Milwaukee Brewers 3-1 on Sunday for their eighth straight road victory.Were going to leave here in a good place but weve got to show up in Chicago, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. I dont think you could ask for much more here at the end of August. We get to play meaningful games. It should be fun.Pittsburgh is in the thick of the NL Wild Card race, but Novas injury is the latest issue in a road that gets much tougher for the Pirates.I was trying not to think about it, said Nova, who was pulled as a precaution. It was my first time experiencing something like that. I decided to tell the manager.Ace Gerrit Cole will not start Monday, instead heading to get an outside opinion on his ailing right elbow and missing at least one scheduled start.We will talk more about Gerrit and his situation when he comes back from the doctor, general manager Neal Huntington said.John Jaso and Gregory Polanco each homered in the sixth off Brewers starter Chase Anderson (7-11) to complete Pittsburghs first sweep at Miller Park since 2004. Starling Marte added a solo shot in the eighth.Nova (4-0) retired 10 of his final 11 batters after allowing Jonathan Villars solo homer in the third. He scattered three hits and struck out four before being pinch hit for in the seventh. Tony Watson converted his 10th save in 13 opportunities.Nova is pitching like a staff ace so far in Piittsburgh before he hits free agency this winter. Pánské Pharrell x adidas NMD Human Race Fear of God Boty Bílé/Cerné Prodej. . Hes struck out 22 and walked just four in 31 1/3 innings with a 2.87 ERA over his first five starts since being acquired at the trade deadline from the Yankees.Itd be pretty silly for the manager to push him out there for one more inning and he blows his hamstring, Hurdle said. We were very pleased with that effort.ANDERSON STRUGGLESAnderson again failed to get out of the sixth inning for Milwaukee -- for the 11th time in his last 12 starts.He worked his way out of a bases loaded jam with one out in the fourth, but grooved a pair of pitches in the sixth and was pulled after Polancos shot put Pittsburgh ahead for good.The command was there for me today for the most part, just got away from me in the sixth inning, Anderson said.PIRATES MOVEPirates 3B Adam Frazier was optioned to Single-A Bristol before the game and RHP A.J. Schugel was recalled. Frazier started at third base in Saturdays 9-6 win.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: With Cole out, Hurdle says his rotation plan in Chicago will be Steven Brault on Monday followed by Chad Kuhl and Ryan Vogelsong.Brewers: Brewers RHP Junior Guerra (right elbow) is expected to return to the rotation at some point after Thursdays day off. He threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings in his previous rehab start at Triple-A Colorado Springs.UP NEXTPirates: Brault (0-1, 3.60 ERA) will be recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis.
