March 18, 2013 7:25 a.m. Continued by Tanker1975, Th christian louboutin outle e 2011 Barrick Mining annual report is out. If you read it, there are some very interesting facts that emerge. This is a link to the Barrick Annual Report for 2011. ............... Barrick Mining either owns outright, or is a partner in a joint venture in 7 gold mines in Nevada. To determine my estimate a profits for 2011, I assumed the price of gold at $1500 per ounce, or less. The current price for gold is in excess of $1750 per ounce. The first four mines listed are totally owned by Barrick Mining. In 2011, according to their own figures, Barrick Mining produced almost 97 TONS of gold from their Nevada Mines. That is same weight as 16 full size, original HUMMERS. Barrick Mining has reported record profits and dividends in both 2010 and 2011. The Cortez Hills Mine produced 1.42 Million (44.375 tons) ounces of Gold at a cost of $245 per ounce. If you assume a conservative profit of $1000 per ounce, you get a profit for the Cortez Hill mine of $1,420,000,000. Barrick paid a total of $47,300,000 in local and state taxes last year. Bald Mountain Mine produced 93,000 ounces (2.9 tons) at a cost of $558 per ounce. Assuming a profit of $900 per ounce for the Bald Mountain Mine, you get a profit of $83,700,000. The Gold Strike mine produced 1.09 MILLION ounces (34.0625 http://www.cheapchristianlouboutinonline.co.uk Tons) christian louboutin outle at a cost of $511 per ounce. Again assuming a profit of $900 per ounce for the Gold Strike mine, you get a profit of $981,000,000. Ruby Hill mine produced 127,000 ounces (3.96875 tons) at a cost of $334 per ounce. Assuming a profit of $1000 per ounce for Ruby Hill, you get a profit of $127,000,000. Barrick Mining is involved in three joint ventures in Nevada. Barrick owns 33% of the Marigold mine. Barrick s share of production was 51,000 ounces (1.59675 Tons) at a cost of $761 per ounce. For the Marigold mine, assume a profit of $700 per ounce. The total profit would be $35,700,000. Barrick owns 50% of the Round Mountain mine. Barrick s share was 178,000 ounces (5.5625 Tons) at a cost of $612 per ounce. Assuming a profit of $800 per ounce for the Round Mountain mine, we get a total profit of $142,400,000. Barrick owns 75% of the Turquoise Ridge mine which produced 135,000 ounces (4.21875 Tons) at a cost of $569 per ounce. Finally for the Turquoise Ridge mine, assume a profit of $700 per ounce. This would give a profit of $ 94,500,000. Barrick is actively exploring in the Carlin Trace in Nevada. The Carlin Trace is one of the richest gold deposts in the world. Barrick s annual report shows that 44% of the companies income comes from North America. Don t forget that Barrick is also mining silver along with the gold in Nevada. If you add all of the projected and conservative profits, the total is $2,884,300,000. This is a conservative estimate. By

Facebook Fark Digg Reddit Stumble U.S. housing starts rise, permits at 4 ½-yearhigh New homes under construction in Henderson seen on Wednesday, May 23,2012. By Christopher S. Rugaber, Associated Press Tuesday, March 19, 2013 | 8:50 a.m. WASHINGTON — U.S. builders started more houses and apartments in February and received building permits for future construction at the fastest pace in 4 ½ years. The increases point to a housing recovery that is gaining strength. The Commerce Department said Tuesday that builders broke ground on homes last month at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 917,000. That's up from 910,000 in January. And it's the second-fastest pace since June 2008, behind December's rate of 982,000. Single-family home construction increased to an annual rate of 618,000, the most in 4 ½ years. Apartment construction also ticked up, to 285,000. The gains are likely to grow even faster in the comin christian louboutin online g months. Building permits, a sign of future construction, increased 4.6 percent to 946,000. That was also the most since June 2008, just a few months into the Great Recession. And the figures for January and December were also revised higher. Overall housing starts have risen 28 percent higher over the past 12 months. Separately, a private report showed the number of Americans with equity in their homes increased last year. That suggests one of the biggest drags from the housing crisis is easing. It could also clear the way for more people to put homes on the market. "The road ahead for housing is still, so far, looking promising," Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets, said in a note to clients. The pair of positive housing reports helped drive gains on Wall Street. The Dow Jones industrial average rose 24 points in morning trading. Homebuilder stocks jumped. Hovnanian Enterprises rose 4.2 percent to $6.24, while Lennar Corp. rose 0.4 percent to $41.74. Housing starts jumped in the Northeast and Midwest, while they fell in the South and West. Permits rose in the South, West and Midwest, falling only in the Northeast. The U.S. housing market is recovering after stagnating for roughly five years. Steady job gains and near-record-low mortgage rates have encouraged more people to buy. In addition, more people are seeking their own homes after doubling up with friends and relatives in the recession. That's leading to greater demand for apartments and single-family homes to rent. Still, the supply of available homes for sale remains low. That has helped push up ho louboutin outle online me prices. They rose nearly 10 percent in January compared with 12 months earlier, according to CoreLogic, the biggest increase in nearly seven years. Higher prices mean that more Americans have equity in their homes. Last year, about 1.7 million Americans went from owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth to having some ownership stake, CoreLogic reported Tuesday. That benefits both home owners and the broader economy. When homeowners christian louboutin outle have some equity stake, it makes it easier for them to sell or borrow against their homes. Still, 10.4 million households, or 21.5 percent of those with a mortgage, remain "under water," or owe more on their home than it is worth. The number of previously occupied homes for sale has fallen to its lowest level in 13 years. And the pace of foreclosures, while still rising in some states, has slowed sharply on a national basis. That means fewer low-priced foreclosed homes are being dumped on the market. Those trends, and the likelihood of further price gains, have led builders to step up construction. Last year, builders broke ground on the most homes in four years. Homebuilders have become much more confident over the past year. But in March, a measure of home builder confidence fell for the second straight month over concerns that demand for new homes is exceeding supplies of land, building materials and workers. In the short term, that could slow sales. Still, the survey noted that the outlook for sales over the next six months rose to its highest level in more than six years. Though new homes represent only a fraction of the housing market, they have an outsize impact on the economy. Each home built creates an average of three jobs for a year and generates about $90,000 in tax revenue, according to statistics from the homebuilders.

ST. THOMAS - Prosecutors notched two more guilty pleas Wednesday in the corruption case centered on former Sen. Alvin Williams Jr.Kim Blackett, formerly Williams' chief of staff, and Garry Sprauve, a senior adviser to Williams, pleaded guilty to one charge each in relation to the case.Blackett, who was severed as a defendant and re-charged in a superseding information Wednesday, pleaded guilty in a new two-count document charging her with the V.I. crime of making fraudulent claims upon the government related to an online degree and the federal crime of wire fraud related to an online degree.Blackett pleaded guilty to the local charge, which exposes her to up to two years in prison and a fine of $500.She originally was charged as part of a nine-count indictment against her, Williams, Sprauve and Ace Development, a company owned by Williams' father, Alvin Williams Sr.That indictment jointly accused Blackett and Alvin Williams Jr. of obtaining money by false pretenses contrary to V.I. law and did not include any federal charges against Blackett. Her attorney, Assistant Federal Public Defender Gabriel Villegas, moved to dismiss that charge earlier this month, arguing that the indictment posed "an unjust linguistic anomaly," attempting to accuse Alvin Williams Jr. and Blackett of perpetrating a crime of which Alvin Williams Jr. was also a victim.The new charge makes Blackett's role clearer, namely that she aided and abetted in a false representation to the government by Alvin Williams Jr. insofar as the senator hired Blackett as a legislative staff member but was paying her with government funds to do his coursework toward an online degree from the University of Phoenix between 2008 and 2011, according to court documents and statements in court Wednesday by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kelly Lake.Sprauve pleaded guilty to one of the three charges he faced in the original indictment, which jointly accused him and Alvin Williams Jr. of engaging in a conspiracy related to making fraudulent claims upon the government, obtaining money by false pretenses, and embezzlement and falsification of a public account, all contrary to Virgin Islands law.Sprauve entered a plea of guilty to the first charge, which exposes him to five years in prison and a $1,000 fine, according to statements in court Wednesday. It carries the lowest maximum penalty of the three charges he was facing.As part of the plea, Sprauve agreed that the government would have proven, had the case gone to trial, that Alvin Williams Jr. and Sprauve solicited a $10,000 bribe from the developers of the Tutu Park Mall wind turbine project. The men instructed the developers to pay the bribe as 10 separate $1,000 campaign contributions to Alvin Williams Jr., causing the developers to believe they were making legitimate political contributions, according to Lake.The developers wrote the checks and mailed them, and Sprauve deposited them into Alvin Williams Jr.'s campaign bank account but never reported the contributions as required by V.I. law, Lake said.Chief District Judge Curtis Gomez accepted both pleas and set the defendants' sentencing for June 20. Prosecutors recommended that the conditions of release for both defendants remain in place until sentencing.Alvin Williams Jr. previously pleaded guilty to a federal racketeering charge in the case and is scheduled to be sentenced April 25 by Gomez.- Contact reporter Lou Mattei at 714-9124 or email lmattei@dailynews.vi.

Are you caught up in fever? Now that the sun has finally shown itself, and we’ve all set our clocks ahead, spring is in the air. If you find yourself looking at baseboards and wondering how they got so grungy, consumed with the thought of rearranging your closet or excited by the idea of wiping down your showers and tubs, it’s safe to say that answer is yes. Spring is part of our natural rhythm. Unfortunately, many cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful to our health, as well as the environment. Some common household cleaners can cause skin and eye irritation, respiratory issues, and even chemical burns.At the top of the list of dangerous products are cleaners for ovens, drains, showers, and toilet bowls. Additionally, many products contain unnecessary fragrances which may irritate your eyes or lungs or induce headaches. Here’s a list of non-toxic products you can use in place of harsh cleaners to avoid harmful side effec 2013 christian louboutin ts. Best of all, you probably have everything you need in your pantry or cupboards.Vinegar Distilled white vinegar is an amazing cleaner. Because it has a high level of acidity, it will kill mold, germs, and bacteria. Mixed with salt, it can eliminate lime deposits. If your blinds are dirty, mix equal parts distilled white vinegar in warm water. Dip a cleaning rag in the solution and wipe away the grime. You may also use white cotton gloves, dipping your fingers in the solution and using them to wipe the blinds clean. Use the same solutions on your refrigerator shelves. A paste of vinegar and table salt will polish brass, and remove lime deposits from faucets and showerheads. Cut grease on your range hood by wiping it with a sponge that has been soaked in vinegar.Baking soda You probably already know that an open box of baking soda will absorb odors in your refrigerator or pantry. But this non-toxic powder can also keep your kitchen sparkling clean in a variety of ways. Wipe down surfaces with a damp rag dipped in baking soda, then rinse with clean water. It will also get those burn marks off the bottom of your pots, pans, and tea kettles. It’s safe to use on no-wax floors to remove scuff marks, too. To get rid of the grime that builds up on cupboard doors, mix equal parts of baking soda and vegetable oil. Work http://www.2013christianlouboutincheap.co.uk it in with a cloth or toothbrush, then wipe away. (Put a towel down on the counter to catch all of the mixture that falls to the counter as you work.) Clean your silver with a paste made of three parts baking soda and one part water. Work it into the pieces and then rinse with warm water before drying with a soft cloth.Blue Dawn The Examiner hates cleaning her showers because she has yet to find a shower cleaner that doesn’t make her gag. Then she discovered the miracle of Pinterest and learned how to mix equal parts of warm vinegar and blue Dawn dish soap. Mix that up and put it into a spray bottle, then give it a gentle shake to help it mix together. Squirt it all over your shower and tub and let it sit for a while, then just rinse it and wipe away. It works great on your sink, too. Olive oil Polish your wood furniture with a mixture of equal parts olive oil and lemon juice. Use long strokes to bring out the natural beauty of the wood. Or use a little oil on a clean, damp mop to spiff up your hardwood floors.Lemon juice Another favorite of the Boise Healthy Living Examiner is to use lemon juice to clean the microwave. You know how gross the inside of your microwave gets, especially when your kids are reheating spaghetti and it explodes? Of course they never clean that up while it’s still fresh. Then it gets baked on and turns into a horrible mess. Use lemon juice and water to de-gunk that stuff. Pour a little lemon juice into a microwave-safe bowl and add two or three cups of water. Put the bowl in the microwave and let it cook on high for a few minutes. Use oven mitts or a towel to remove the bowl and set it aside. Then take a sponge and wipe down the inside of the microwave. The citric acid from the lemon juice, combined with the steam from the water, will loosen everything and make it easier to wipe down. For stubborn, stuck-on grime, you may need to repeat the process, so don’t dump the water just yet.If you’re inspired to do some spring cleaning, here are a fe christian louboutin outlet w more timely tips. Get these done this weekend and then make a point to do them again in the fall when you set your clocks back.Replace air and heating filters and give your vents a good vacuuming.Change smoke detector batteries.Flip your mattresses and vacuum them.Use newspaper to clean your windows, mirrors, and sliding glass doors instead of paper toweling.Go through your medicine cabinet and dispose of anything expired. Add replacements to your grocery list.These tips can not only help keep your home looking and smelling fresh and healthy, but they’ll save you some money, too.

WASHINGTON -- Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair, fired from his command in Afghanistan last May and now facing a court-martial on charges of sodomy, adultery and pornography and more, is just one in a long line of commanders whose careers were ended because of possible sexual misconduct.Sex has proved to be the downfall of presidential candidates, members of Congress, governors and other notables. It's also among the chief reasons that senior military officers are fired.At least 30 percent of military commanders fired over the past eight years lost their jobs because of sexually related offenses, including harassment, adultery, and improper relationships, according to statistics compiled by The Associated Press.The figures bear out growing concerns by Defense Department and military leaders over declining ethical values among U.S. forces, and they highlight the pervasiveness of a problem that came into sharp relief because of the resignation of one of the Army's most esteemed generals, David Petraeus, and the investigation of a second general, John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan.AN ESCALATING PROBLEMThe statistics from all four military services show that adulterous affairs are more than a four-star foible. From sexual assault and harassment to pornography, drugs and drinking, ethical lapses are an escalating problem for the military's leaders.With all those offenses taken together, more than 4 in every 10 commanders at the rank of lieutenant colonel or above who were fired fell as a result of behavioral stumbles since 2005.The recent series of highly publicized cases led to a review of ethics training across the military. It also prompted Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to conclude that while training is adequate, it may need to start earlier in service members' careers and be reinforced more frequently.Still, officials struggle to explain why the problem has grown and they acknowledge that solving it is difficult and will take time."I think we're on the path. I think the last two defense secretaries have made this a very high priority and have very much held people accoun toms outlet table. But we've got a ways to go," said Michele Flournoy, a former undersecretary of defense under President Barack Obama.She said the military must enforce a "zero tolerance" policy and work to change the culture so service members are held accountable and made to understand that their careers will be over if they commit or tolerate such offenses."The policy is in place," she said. "I don't know that it's as evenly and fully enforced as intended."TROUBLE AT THE TOPFor top officers, the numbers are startling.Eighteen generals and admirals, from one star to four stars, were fired in recent years, and 10 of them lost their jobs because of sex-related offenses; two others were done in by alcohol-related problems.The figures show that 255 commanders were fired since 2005, and that 78 of them were felled by sex-related offenses. A breakdown: 32 in the Army, 25 in the Navy, 11 in the Marine Corps and 10 in the Air Force.Alcohol and drug-related problems cost the jobs of 27 commanders -- 11 in the Navy, eight in the Army, five in the Marine Corps and three in the Air Force."It's troublesome," said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Navy's top spokesman. "Navy leadership is taking a look at why personal conduct seems to be a growing reason for why commanding officers are losing their commands. We're trying to get to the root causes. We don't really fully understand it."He and other military leaders agree that poor leadership, bad judgment, and ethical lapses, rather than operational failures, are growing factors in the firings. But Kirby said it's not clear whether that has anything to do with the strains of the past 10 years at war or simply reflects deteriorating morals among the general population.CONFIDENCE UNDERMINEDDefense Secretary Leon Panetta ordered the ethics review in November. He said that "when lapses occur, they have the potential to erode public confidence in our leadership and in our system for the enforcement of our high ethical standards. Worse, they can be detrimental to the execution of our mission to defend the American people."Anu Bhagwati, executive director of the Service Women's Action Network, said there is more focus on this issue now than ever in the past, but that there really is no sufficient deterrent in place. She said a major problem is that military commanders are responsible for deciding what cases should move forward.She said military lawyers, who are trained and have a greater appearance of impartiality, should make such an important legal decision.The statistics gathered and analyzed by the AP represent a very conservative estimate of the problem. While the Army, Navy and Marine Corps provided details for all military commanders who were lieutenant colonels or commanders and above for 2005 until now, Air Force officials said they could only provide data for colonels and above from 2008 until today.Also, the figures reflect only officers who were in command positions. The numbers don't include what could be hundreds of officers fired from other jobs, such as administrative or other military posts. Military officials said they only collect data on officers in command who are fired.The reasons for the firings are also murky. In some cases, no reason was listed; in other cases, it was vague -- such as "ethics" or "leadership" or for fostering a bad command climate.There also are varying degrees of publicity when such action is taken.WHAT HAPPENS NEXTIn Sinclair's case, the charges and impending court martial have received extensive coverage. The five pages of allegations, which involve his conduct with five women who were not his wife, include one count of forcible sodomy, two counts of wrongful sexual conduct, six counts of inappropriate sexual relationships, and eight counts of violating regulations. He could receive life in prison if convicted.But in many other cases, particularly of those below the rank of general, there is little public notice if the senior officer is in the Army or Air Force. The Navy, however, issues a public statement every time a commander is removed from a job.The figures also highlight the Navy's reputation for being quick to justice. Although it is the second-smallest of the four military services, the Navy has relieved the most commanders, 99, over the past eight years. By comparison, it was cheap toms online 83 for the Army, 41 for the Marines and 32 for the Air Force.Dismissing a commander from a job does not mean that officer is forced out of the military. In some of the more serious cases, officers may be discharged or forced to resign. But in many other cases, service members may go on to another job for some time.Still, a dismissal often signals the end of an officer's career, and with no chance for promotion, officers will often retire or leave the service.The Army is the largest of the military services, reaching a peak of about 570,000 active duty soldiers at the height of the Iraq war. It is supposed to cut 80,000 troops by 2017. The Marine Corps is the smallest service, with about 202,000 at its peak during the wars and is set to slim down to about 182,000. The Navy has about 322,000 active duty forces and the Air Force has about 328,000.OTHER OFFENSES, SCANDALSThe other reasons for dismissals by the services cover a broad range of offenses, from assault and drug and alcohol use to being a poor or abusive leader. There are also instances of fraud as well as a few cases where Navy officers commanding a ship have hit something, such as a buoy or another ship.Four generals have lost their jobs in recent years as a result of public scandals. All were dismissed while Robert Gates was defense secretary: Gen. Michael Moseley, the Air Force Chief of Staff, was dismissed in 2008 for failing to address several nuclear-related mishaps by the service. Army Lt. Gen. Kevin Kiley and Army Maj. Gen. George Weightman were dismissed because of the poor outpatient treatment of wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in 2007. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal resigned after members of his staff made disparaging remarks about Obama's national security team, including Vice President Joe Biden. A Pentagon investigatio http://www.2013tomshoes.net n later cleared him of wrongdoing.

FDA approves Novartis TOBI Podhaler for certain cystic fibrosis patients, the first and only dry powder inhaled antibacterial in US- TOBI Podhaler is portable and requires no nebulizer, refrigeration or power source to deliver the medicine- TOBI Podhaler is indicated for certain cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with Pa and shortens treatment time by about 70% compared to nebulized TOBI- CF affects about 30,000 children and adults in the US with an average daily treatment burden of approximately 2 hours for CF therapiesPR NewswireEAST HANOVER, N.J., March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Novartis announced today that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved TOBI Podhaler (tobramycin inhalation powder) 28 mg per capsule for the management of cystic fibrosis (CF) patients with Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) bacteria in the lungs. Pa is the leading cause of loss of lung function in CF patients. It is not known if TOBI Podhaler is safe and effective in patients under six years of age, in those with lung function outside of a certain range, or in those whose lungs contain bacteria called Burkholderia cepacia. To view the multimedia assets associated with this release, please click: http://www.multivu.com/mnr/58560-novartis TOBI Podhaler is a new, non-nebulized formulation and delivery system of tobramycin, the same active ingredient as in TOBI (tobramycin inhalation solution, USP) 300 mg/5 mL, which has been on the market for approximately 15 years. TOBI Podhaler is the first and only FDA-approved dry powder inhaled antibacterial for Pa in the US. It delivers tobramycin into the patient's lungs via a pocket-sized dry powder inhaler and offers better portability than TOBI, which is administered using a nebulizer. In a Phase III study, TOBI Podhaler shortened administration time for patients by approximately 70% compared to TOBI, saving about 13 hours per treatment cycle. This does not include the time saved on setting up and maintaining the nebulizer and compressor.TOBI Podhaler does not need to be stored in a refrigerator and, unlike nebulized Pa treatments, does not require a power source to operate the delivery device. While the nebulizer used to administer TOBI must be disinfected in boiling water for 10 minutes every other treatment day, the disposable Podhaler device must only be wiped clean with a dry cloth after each use and is then replaced weekly."This is good news for the CF community," said Robert J. Beall, Ph.D., President and CEO, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. "Managing daily CF treatments is a challenge for people with CF. TOBI Podhaler helps relieve that burden by shortening the time it takes to administer the medicine and making it easy for people with CF to take their treatment with them wherever they need to go."The new TOBI Podhaler dry powder formulation was developed using proprietary Novartis PulmoSphere technology. This technology enables the creation of hollow porous particles of tobramycin that can be delivered as a dry powder rather than as a nebulized solution."TOBI Podhaler is an example of how Novartis is utilizing innovative technologies to better meet the needs of patients. By eliminating the need for a nebulizer to deliver tobramycin and providing a small, lightweight design, TOBI Podhaler reduces administration time and improves portability for patients on-the-go," said Andre Wyss, President of Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation. "It also underscores our long-term commitment to the cystic fibrosis community."TOBI Podhaler was studied in a Phase III clinical program involving 674 CF patients aged six years and older with Pa in their lungs, of whom 425 patients received at least one dose of TOBI Podhaler. Two trials evaluated the efficacy of TOBI Podhaler vs. placebo, while a third trial assessed the safety of TOBI Podhaler vs. TOBI. All studies evaluated TOBI Podhaler at the approved dose of 112 mg twice daily (the contents of four 28 mg capsules per dose) in cycles of 28 days on, immediately followed by 28 days off treatment. Results of the efficacy studies showed that TOBI Podhaler improved lung function compared to placebo. The safety of TOBI Podhaler was evaluated in 425 patients who received at least one dose of TOBI Podhaler, including 273 who were exposed across three cycles. In the two placebo-controlled efficacy trials, adverse reactions reported more commonly with TOBI Podhaler compared to placebo included pharyngolaryngeal pain (sore throat), dysphonia (voice alteration) and dysgeusia (taste disturbance) in one study and cough and hypoacusis (decreased hearing) in the other study. In the safety study, the most commonly reported adverse reactions (as defined as 10% in either treatment arm) with TOBI Podhaler were cough, lung disorder (pulmonary or CF exacerbations), productive cough, dyspnea (shortness of breath), pyrexia (fever), oropharyngeal pain (sore throat), dysphonia (voice alteration), hemoptysis (coughing up blood) and headache.CF is a life-shortening genetic disease that affects about 30,000 children and adults in the US. It primarily impacts the lungs and digestive system, making it hard to breathe and to digest food. Pa is the leading cause of loss of lung function in people with CF. About 80% of people with CF between the ages of 25 and 34 have Pa in their lungs. The treatment burden for CF is very high.

Facebook Fark Digg Reddit Stumble Alaska fans make noise in Aces shootout loss toWranglers Wranglers netminder Joe Fallon drops the puck to the ice after stopping a shootout attempt by Aces forward Alex Hudson to give Las Vegas a thrilling 5-4 victory on Friday night at the OrleansArena. By () Friday, Feb. 1, 2013 | 11 p.m. Alaska Aces fan Rick White proudly wears his gear that earned him the nickname "Helmet Man," Friday, Feb. 1, 2013, at the Orleans Arena. The Wranglers topped the aces 5-4. Sun coverage Armed with cowbells and a sense of team pride, a traveling band of Alaska Aces fans made plenty of noise inside the Orleans Arena on Friday night against the Las Vegas Wranglers. At times, the ringing of cowbells and cheers drowned out the large majority of Wrangler fans. Most notably with each Alaska goal, Rick White's one-of-a-kind helmet would emit the same red light, bringing the 200-or-so fans from Alaska to their feet. "We love it in Las Vegas. They treat us well," said White, who has a custom-made Alaska Aces jersey donning his nickname "Helmet Man." Unfortunately, the Aces weren't treated with such hospitality on the ice. The Wranglers rallied from a two-goal def christian louboutin outle icit to walk away with a 5-4 shootout victory over the Aces, sending the 5,000-plus Wrangler fans home happy. "We needed that win," said Eric Lampe, who scored the game-tying goal with 44 seconds to play in the game. "It was another big win for us. Hopefully we can keep it going." It probably wasn't the ending White envisioned when the Alaska fans got onto the plane to fly down to Las Vegas, but the game is just part of the experience. For five seasons, White has led a group of Aces fans to Las Vegas for a brief hockey-centric vacation in the lower 48. Last season, the Aces fan base took an epic road trip visiting other ECHL towns such as Bakersfield, Calif., Ontario, Calif., Stockton, Calif., and, of course, Las Vegas. White said the number of fans who make the trip to Las Vegas has grown over time, and that many in the Anchorage, Alaska, area support the team. "We have a lot of support for the guys from Alaska every year," White said. The Wranglers (20-19-2-3) were unfazed by the louder-than-usual road supporters, and plugged away as they normally would, albeit in the fashion that has, more or less, become the team's identity (fall behind early, play catch up rest of the game). The Aces (32-11-1-3) seemed to have the game in hand with less than a minute to play and up a goal. All they needed was one more defensive stop to win the game. But after a timeout, Andrew Sarauer won the face-off in the Aces territory. Nolan Julseth-White fired a shot toward the net, but Alaska goalie Gerald Coleman made the save. Coleman, however, was unable to secure the puck. The puck caromed off Coleman, before bouncing off Lampe's arm into the back of the net to tie the game. "My momentum was going forward, and it went in," Lampe said of the goal that sent the game into overtime. The teams played a deadlocked extra period of hockey, setting up the shootout. After Bobby Hughes scored the first goal for the Alaska, birthday boy Joe Fallon stepped up, stopping the next four shooters to give the Wranglers their fifth shootout victory in a row — their second over Alaska this week. The Wranglers, meanwhile, converted on two of their chances to win the game. "We battled a lot of adversity tonight," said Chris Francis, who had a goal, an assist and a goal in the shootout. "We play from behind, but it shows character in our team." Th christian louboutin online ree Stars http://www.cheapchristianlouboutinonline.co.uk/ : 1. Eric Lampe, Las Vegas (1 goal, 1 assist); 2. Chris Francis, Las Vegas (1 goal, 1 assist), 3. Nick Mazzolini, Alaska (2 goals). Up Next: The Wranglers continue their home stand with another matchup with the Alaska Aces 7 p.m. Saturday. Las Vegas will then take Sunday off before returning to the ice Monday for a game against Colorado in the "Over-18 Night." Final Word: "It's going to be different. We've never seen anything like that before. We're all pretty happy to experience it. It'll be fun for all of us." — Las Vegas' Chris Francis said about wearing "topless" jerseys on Monday against the Colorado Eagles.

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama returned to the unfinished business of a still struggling economy Tuesday night, outlining a second-term agenda with proposals designed to create jobs, expand the middle class and spur financial growth. We can fix this and we will, the president said repeatedly.In his annual State of the Union address, Obama laid out plans in four main areas manufacturing, education, clean energy and infrastructure to try to help the nation recover from the worst recession in decades at what he said would be no additional cost. A growing economy that creates good, middle-class jobs that must be the North Star that guides our efforts, Obama said. Every day, we should ask ourselves three questions as a nation: How do we attract more jobs to our shores? How do we equip our people with the skills they need to get those jobs? And how do we make sure that hard work leads to a decent living? Obama described a nation that has made progress, ending long wars in Afghanistan and Iraq while clearing away the rubble of the Great Recession, but one that still needs additional help to prosper. He declared that the state of the union is stronger, but not strong. It is our generation s task, then, to reignite the true engine of America s economic growth a rising, thriving middle class, he said. It is our unfinished task to restore the basic bargain that built this country the idea that if you work hard and meet your responsibilities, you can get ahead, no matter where you come from, no matter what you look like, or who you love. It is our unfinished task to make sure that this government works on behalf of the many, and not just the few; that it encourages free enterprise, rewards individual initiative, and opens the doors of opportunity to every child across this great nation of ours, he said.He proposed raising the minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour. He recommended spending $65 billion on road, bridge and building repairs. He unveiled a plan to save eligible homeowners $3,000 annually by refinancing at lower interest rates.Obama starts his second term with a stubbornly high unemployment rate higher for women and blacks than when he first took office falling consumer confidence and a mounting deficit as he faces often uncooperative lawmakers on Capitol Hill. He insisted that Democrats and Republicans put aside their differences and take action, mostly immediately to find an alternative to looming across-the-board budget cuts that could harm the economy in weeks. The American people don t expect government to solve every problem, he said. They don t expect those of us in this chamber to agree on every issue. But they do expect us to put the nation s interests before party. They do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can. Tens of millions watched the hour-long address, delivered to a joint session of Congress. The applause mostly fel http://www.2013tomshoes.net l along partisan lines, with House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, sitting behind Obama often with a solemn expression while Vice President Joe Biden beside him stood to applaud.Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a rising Republican star, offered his party s response in English and Spanish. Rubio said the free enterprise economy will create jobs and, not as Obama has suggested, the collection and spending of new revenue. The idea that more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hardworking middle-class taxpayers that s an old idea that s failed every time it s been tried, he said. More government isn t going to help you get ahead. It s going to hold you back. More government isn t going to create more opportunities. It s going to limit them. Obama spoke about other issues Tuesday including rewriting the nation s immigration laws and combating climate change but mostly in the context of the economy.There were a few exceptions: Obama pressed for the most aggressive gun-control plan in generations. In the most emotional moment of the speech, he delivered an impassioned call for a vote on gun control bills by listing the communities ripped open by gun violence from Aurora, Colo., to Newtown, Conn. As he spoke, cameras cut to people in the visitors galleries, some crying, some holding up photos of people presumably slain in mass shootings. They deserve a simple vote, he said. The room erupted in sustained applause.Obama announced that he will form a nonpartisan commission to study changes in the voting system after Americans endured long lines and administrative pro cheap toms online blems at the polls by singling out 102-year-old Desiline Victor, a North Miami woman who waited six hours in line to vote in November.He said that by this time next year more than half the U.S. troops in Afghanistan 34,000 will have returned home as the Afghans take responsibilit http://www.2013tomshoes.net y for security. He condemned North Korea for conducting its third nuclear test hours earlier, warning that it undermines regional stability, violates North Korea s United Nations obligations and increases the risk of proliferation. He called for a reduction in nuclear weapons worldwide.Obama will fly to Asheville, N.C., on Wednesday to begin selling his plans to the nation. Later in the week, he will continue the campaign-style pitch with stops in Atlanta and Chicago. He s going to take his press conference out to the country, said Rep. Sander Levin of Michigan, the highest-ranking Democrat on the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee. The president learned from his first term, you need to have a major dialogue. He pressed for cuts in projected deficits by eliminating tax loopholes and deductions benefiting certain industries or the wealthy as well as by cutting projected spending.And he urged Congress to pass a package of modest cuts and tax changes as a way to delay drastic, across-the-board federal spending reductions that are scheduled to take effect March 1.White House officials said the president will pay for his spending proposals by re-prioritizing items in the budget. His proposed budget will be released in mid-March. Tonight, I ll lay out additional proposals that are fully paid for and fully consistent with the budget framework both parties agreed to just 18 months ago, he said. Let me repeat nothing I m proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. It s not a bigger government we need, but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad-based growth. Obama announced that he issued executive orders, which do not require congressional approval, to open three manufacturing institutes and to improve the security of the computer networks that direct the nation s crucial infrastructure systems such as electricity, finance and transportation. And he threatened to sign more if Congress does not pass changes to prepare for climate change.Kevin G. Hall and David Lightman of the Washington Bureau contributed.

President Obama plans to designate a national monument in the , handing a long-sought victory to island residents and members of Washington s congressional delegation.Obama will sign a proclamation Monday creating the monument, a White House official said Thursday. The action will provide permanent protections for nearly 1,000 ac christian louboutin outle res of undeveloped federal lands on the islands, including Lopez Island s Iceberg Point and Chadwick Hill and the Cattle Point Lighthouse on San Juan Island.The news was hailed by members of Washington s congressional delegation who had worked for years to preserve the lands. We’re very pleased because it s such an incredible unique spot in the United States it will be permanently protected for generations to come, Democratic U.S. Sen. Maria Cantwell said in an interview Thursday.The lands that islanders had sought to preserve are already federally owned and overseen by the Bureau of Land Management. While there were no apparent plans for the louboutin outle online government to sell or develop the properties, the monument designation offers virtual certainty they will remain protected in perpetuity.U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, D-Everett, cr http://www.christianeoutlet.co.uk edited years of persistence by environmental and business leaders who built to campaign for the monument.“San Juan Islanders have been shouting from the rooftops for years: protect these lands. Well the president heard our message loud and clear, Larsen said in a written statement.U.S. Sen. Patty Murray thanked Obama and outgoing Interior Secretary Ken Salazar for the action, saying in a statement through her office the San Juan Islands will now join our nation s most iconic parks, wildlife refuges, and landmarks as a permanent, federally protected national monument. The president s authority to create national monuments was given by the of 1906, first utilized by President Theodore Roosevelt to designate in Wyoming. There are now more than 100 national monuments across the country, including the Grand Canyon, Statue of Liberty and Colorado s Canyon of the Ancients.The San Juan Islands will become the third national monument in Washington, joining Mt. St. Helens and Hanford Reach.Along with the San Juans, Obama on Monday also will designate new national monuments in Delaware, Maryland and New Mexico, according to the White House.

DAYTON, Ohio Andre Nation hung his head and the freshman sniffled.It was tough to talk about James Madison's season, and the bond he developed with his teammates. The Dukes made the NCAA field for the first time in 19 years and earlier this week won their first tournament game in 30 years.They wanted more.Then they ran into Indiana.Unable to deal with the top-seeded Hoosiers' size or speed, James Madison fell behind by 33 points and were throttled 83-62 by Indiana, which very much looked like a team capable of winning it all this year."They threw the first punch, and they threw another punch, and they kept throwing them, and we weren't throwing any back," Nation said. "So it was physical. They came prepared to play."Not taking any chances with a No. 16 seed, the Hoosiers (28-6) started fast, building a 21-point halftime lead. They pushed it to 33 in the second half before letting up and had little trouble with the Dukes (21-15), who beat LIU Brooklyn in the First Four on Wednesday and thought they could hang with the Hoosiers.It was never close."It will be a learning experience, especially for my youngest guys," Dukes coach Matt Brady said. "They played a dynamite first half, and it really took us a first half to catch up to the speed with which they play."After being bruised and battered all year in the Big Ten, the Hoosiers finally got a chance to pick on a little guy."I've been waiting for this all week," said Ferrell, who added eight rebound and six assists. "A lot of us are jacked up to get out here, play against some different competition."Looking every bit like a team capable of cutting down the nets in Atlanta next month, Indiana, which spent a good chunk of the season atop the AP poll, will play Temple in the second round on Sunday.Will She toms shoes outlet ehey scored 15 and Cody Zeller 11 - eight on rim-rocking dunks - for Indiana.Charles Cooke 18 for James Madison, which made the score somewhat respectable in the final minutes but never really threatened.Of the many upsets in NCAA tournament, there still hasn't been a No. 16 over a No. 1. And any thoughts James Madison, which beat LIU Brooklyn in a First Four game to get here, had of making history were over shortly after player introductions.Indiana wasn't fooling around."We played excellent," Indiana coach Tom Crean said.With Ferrell, playing in his first tourney game darting in and around the Dukes, the Hoosiers unleashed their offensive fury on the Dukes and clamped down on a James Madison team that never experienced anything like Indiana's man-to-man pressure this season in the Colonial Athletic Association.After falling behind by 20, the Dukes got within 34-20 when Nation made two straight 3-pointers. However, the spurt only seemed to anger the Hoosiers and they closed the first half with a 9-2 run to take a 43-22 lead at halftime.As he headed to the locker room, Brady straightened his tie and scratched his head. Back in the staging area inside Dayton Arena even the Dukes' cheerle cheap toms online aders huddled to try and figure out what they could do better.Too late."I thought in the second half we fought a lot harder," Brady said. "We caught up to the pace of the game. We were a little more comfortable."Indiana's size was a problem for James Madison right away. The 7-foot Zeller ran down a loose ball in the corner and grabbed a rebound as the Hoosiers had the ball for nearly a minute before Ferrell scored.The lightning-quick guard scored on two more drives and then hit a 3-pointer to make it Yogi Ferre toms outlet online ll 9, The Fourth U.S. President 0.Brady called his first timeout, but there wasn't much he could say to his team other than to hang in there."We clearly lost to a better team," he said. "Watching them on tape and trying to prepare your team for Indiana is one thing, and then being on the court with them and having to play against the speed and power with which they play was really impressive."It may have been short run, but it was a great one for the Dukes, who overcame injuries and slow start this season.Brady feels the Dukes will grow from the experience."They saw up close and personal, firsthand, what it means to be part of a great team, watching it, playing against Indiana," he said. "We'll take some things from this and try to use it to make our program better. In defeat, that's what you're trying to do. You're trying to learn."And sometimes the lessons end with tears.

Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays. Photo by Associated PressAs part of my into (or l of spring training statistics, I tried to take a different approach. I decided to look at several breakout seasons in recent years to see if there was any hint in spring training of what wa christian louboutin outle s to come. I opted to focus on performances since 2006, after an exhaustive study of the weather patterns in Florida and Arizona revealed that the atmospheric conditions in 2005 and earlier were so erratic that it skewed results. OK, that s not true. The real reason is that the data base on MLB.com and ESPN.com only carry spring stats back to 2006. But that should be enough to make any point that s going to be made.My methodology was admittedly unscientific. I identified as many seasons as I could in which a player took a major step forward, and then looked back to see how he had done in spring. I didn t cherry-pick to prove a point. I had no idea when I started out what the results were going to show. (I stuck with hitters for now. Maybe later I ll look at pitchers).The results should give some hope to the likes of Justin Smoak and Jesus Montero, who are putting up outstanding numbers as they try to advance their careers to another plateau. And maybe also to Kendrys Morales and Michael Morse, who had already had previous breakthroughs, followed by setbacks due to injury.The first name to come to mind was Mike Trout, who emerged last year to have a season for the ages. Turns out Trout barely had a spring. He battled a virus and shoulder tendinitis most of the spring, and hadn t even appeared in the outfield when he was optioned to the minors on March 30. At that point, Trout had a mere six at-bats, with one hit hardly a precursor to the exploits to come when he was called up in late April christian louboutin outle .Miguel Cabrera, who would win the Triple Crown and beat out Trout for the MVP, had a killer spring, hitting .413/.491/.652, with two homers and nine RBIs. But for this exercise, I m not interested in consistently great players like Cabrera I m more interested in the likes of Jose Bautista, who came out of nowhere to hit 54 homers in 2010. It sure looks the momentum started to build in spring,when Bautista put up a .439/.448/.895 (!) line for a 1.343 OPS, with five homers. My first obvious question was how he did in previous springs. Bautista had a good one in 2009, but not as great as the following year. He went .366/.422/.439 in the spring of 09 with zero homers, then had a so-so regular season.Last year, Bautista s Toronto teammate Edwin Encarnacion had a breakout of his own with 42 homers and 110 RBIs (he had never gone higher than 26 or 76 before). And in spring, Encarnacion put up a .924 OPS (.306/.343/.581) with four homers (he had hit .227 the previous spring). Again, excellent spring, excellent season.Justin Morneau was the next hitter who came to mind. In 2005, Morneau was a promising but inconsistent player, hitting .239 with 22 homers. But in 2006, he exploded to hit .321 with 34 homers and 130 RBIs, winning the American League MVP award. That spring, Morneau hit .375 with a .444 on-base and .575 slugging, two homers and 12 RBIs.Josh Hamilton became a superstar with the Rangers in 2008, when he hit 32 homers and drove in 130 runs. That spring, he was sensational, going .435/.470/.758 for a 1.228 OPS, with three homers and 19 RBIs. (The previous spring, when Hamilton had a strong year with the Reds, though not in a full-time role, Hamilton had gone .403/.457/.556).Here comes an exception to this trend: Carlos Pena in 2007, when he stepped up from a journeyman career to hit 46 homers with 121 RBIs for the Rays. Pena didn t have much of a spring and actually was sent to the minors late in camp until a teammate s injury gave him another shot. Pena hit .255 with no homers in spring hardly a sign of things to come.Two years later, the Rays Ben Zobrist thought at the time to be nothing more than a utility guy surged to a .948 OPS with 27 homers and 91 RBIs and was eighth in the MVP voting. Zobrist hit just .232 that spring, but he did draw 16 walks to build a .411 on-base percentage in line with his .405 OBP during the season.Then there s San Diego s Chase Headley, who last year emerged as a power hitter of the first order with 31 homers and a league-leading 115 RBIs. Headley s spring average was just .224, but he slugged .510 and had four homers, maybe an indication that the power stroke was coming around.Alex Gordon of the Royals had been a huge disappointment until 2011, when he hit .303 with 23 homers and 87 RBIs. That spring, Gordon went .343/.459/.729 (a 1.187 OPS) with six homers.Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies emerged as a triple-crown threat in 2010 when, largely of out of the blue, he hit .336 with 34 homers and 117 RBIs. That spring, he hit .339/.391/.576 (.976) with two homers and 13 RBIs.Jacoby Ellsbury of the Red Sox had never come close to putting up the complete season he did http://www.christianeoutlet.co.uk in 2011, when he hit .321 with 32 homers and 105 RBIs and finished second in the MVP voting. Ellsbury hit .355 that spring, with a .385 OBP and .565 slugging (.949) with three homers.Morse s huge 2011 season with Washington (31 homers, .910 OPS) was preceded by a spring in which he hit a whopping nine home runs, good for a .818 slugging percentage to go with a .364 average. Morse, of course, had put up a huge spring for the Mariners in 2008, hitting .492, but an early-season shoulder injury wiped out his season before we could find out if it was indicative of better things to come.Morse s new Mariners teammate, Morales, became a star in 2009 when he hit .306 with 34 homers and 108 RBIs, finishing fifth in the MVP voting. And Morales had a great spring that year with a .400 average, .429 OBP and .682 slugging, with three homers and 17 RBIs.That s enough examples of players having great springs in their breakout seasons to think there might be something to it. Certainly, it s no guarantee, because I ve already provided many examples in the past of  players whose great springs turned out to be the precursor to nothing more than continued mediocrity. But for those players whose time has come and we ll find out soon how many Mariners fit into that category the signs can often be seen in spring.Now, if you ll excuse me, I ll go back to poring over those weather charts.

BRIEF: Gill out for season as Bulls analyst Tribune]By Fred Mitchell, Chicago TribuneMcClatchy-Tribune Information ServicesMarch 22--Comcast SportsNet Chicago Friday suspended Chicago Bulls analyst Kendall Gill for the remainder of the season."We have made a decision to not have Kendall Gill appear on our air for the remainder of the Bulls season," the station said in a statement. "We will re-evaluate our current position on this matter during the off-season."Gill was removed from on-air duties after being involved in a physical altercation with Big Ten Network analyst Tim Doyle on Tuesday night. The incident occurred after a taping of "Sports Talk Live" in the Comcast SportsNet studio newsroom.According to sources, Gill confronted Doyle in the CSN newsroom after the taping because of critical comments made by Doyle regarding Gill's assessment of Monday night's Bulls-Denver game. A controversial call by the officials wiped out a potential game-winning basket by Joakim Noah in overtime.Gill had referred to the decision by the officials as "a very bad call."fmitchell@tribune.comTwitter@kicker34___(c)2013 the Chicago TribuneVisit the Chicago Tribune at www.chicagotribune.comDistributed by MCT Information Services
