The United States Soccer Federation (USSF) is missing an opportunity to make a profound statement about gender equality in sports.
On September 13 Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cierne Ruzove Vypredaj , veteran goalkeeper Hope Solo recorded a record-breaking 72nd shutout with the US national women's team.
This should have been a feel-good moment for everyone involved. There was only one problem: Solo set the record while awaiting a November -trial for assaulting her sister and nephew last summer.
Unfortunately, domestic violence has become a hot-button issue in American sports. NFL players Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson and Greg Hardy have all -recently been suspended pending similar trials.
Solo, however, has been -allowed to continue playing for the US national team and the Seattle Reign of the -National Women's Soccer League. Viewed in the light of the NFL players' suspensions Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Cierne Biele Vypredaj , this seems like a double standard.
The irony here is that ever since Brandi Chastain's torso-baring goal at the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup, the US national women's soccer team has been held up as a shining example of Title IX's multi--generational success.
USA Today's Christine Brennan, herself a trailblazer as a female sportswriter, asked USSF's director of communications Greg Buethe about the decision to heavily promote Solo's pursuit of the record.
"We are aware that Hope is handling a personal situation at the moment," Buethe said. "At the same time Nike Air Presto High Ultra Flyknit Biele Vypredaj , she has an opportunity to set a significant record that speaks to her hard work and dedication over the years with the National Team."
There are two problems here. First of all, "personal issues" become public when law enforcement agents are called to the scene. Second, was the record in question more "significant" than the issue of -domestic violence?
Granted, such cases have proven difficult to adjudicate - as evidenced by the NFL's bungled attempts to do so. As a far less prominent organization, the USSF doesn't possess the NFL's public relations mechanisms.
Still Panske Nike Air Presto Cierne Vypredaj , it's never too late to do the right thing. If the USSF continues to let Solo play, the organization will absolutely be making a statement about -gender equality in sports - but not the statement it wants to.
DHAKA, Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- President Xi Jinping's speech at the Army Day celebration was powerful, befitting of a rising power with a long and rich history and the right to protect its national sovereignty, said a Bangladeshi analyst in an interview with Xinhua on Tuesday.
"He...touched on the need to be ever ready for any eventuality which is a requirement of any professional military Panske Nike Vapormax Námornícka Cierne Vypredaj ," said ANM Muniruzzaman, president of the Bangladesh Institute of Peace and Security Studies. "The need is specially important because of the bitter memories of the past and the current uncertainties of the strategic environment," said Muniruzzaman, also an ex-major general of the Bangladesh Army.
"It is also very much an inspiring message to the members of the PLA (People's Liberation Army)."
He spoke highly of Xi's speech at the ceremony to mark the 90th founding anniversary of the People's Liberation Army on Tuesday.
China will never compromise on its sovereignty, security or development interests Panske Nike Air Max 97 Biele Cierne Vypredaj , President Xi said at the event.
"The Chinese people love peace. We will never seek aggression or expansion, but we have the confidence to defeat all invasions. We will never allow any people, organization or political party to split any part of Chinese territory from the country at any time, in any form," Xi said.
China has always remained committed to the principle of peaceful rise Panske Nike Air Max TN Cierne Cervene Vypredaj , said Muniruzzaman, who has extensive experience in UN peacekeeping operations and led the post-election UN Mission in Cambodia.
"Rarely in history a country has risen to a great power status without violent conflict and war. China is an exception. It has shown the path that peaceful rise is possible. It has also taken tremendous efforts to solve its border disputes with almost all of its neighbors peacefully," he said.
"A rising China that follows this policy of peaceful rise does not only make the ground for internal development but is also a force for regional and international peace and stability," he noted.
According to Muniruzzaman, the Belt and Road Initiative Panske Nike Air Max 95 Cierne Sede Vypredaj , proposed by President Xi in 2013, is a massive game changer.
"It will not only stimulate trade and commerce but will have multi-directional benefits in many sectors. China's idea is also to revive the ancient silk route where the different continents once traded with China. It will bring together many countries in Asia, Africa and Europe under this visionary initiative."
"All countries including China have the right to preserve their national independence and sovereignty. China has to especially be careful in this regard as it peacefully rises as a major power. Like any other countries it has the right to fight back if these interests are threatened.", he stressed
China should also play a responsible role in maintaining regional peace and stability, he said.
