adidas messi football boots Butler man dies in Route 422 collision

A Butler man was killed and two New Castle women were injured in a two car accident Thursday night on Route 422 in Slippery Rock Township.

State police reported that Eli B. near the intersection of Copper Road.

Lawrence County Deputy Coroner James Farris Jr. said Houston appears to have died from blunt force trauma to the chest. An autopsy is being conducted this afternoon at Heritage Valley Health System in Beaver County for further information about the cause of death, he said.

According to information from the police and coroner, Houston was driving a Pontiac G6 sedan going east in the westbound lane of Route 422 when the collision occurred.

Buckley, who was driving a Honda CRV, and her daughter, 22 year old Megan Elizabeth Linger, who was a passenger, both suffered moderate injuries and were taken in stable condition to a hospital.

Farris said Buckley reportedly suffered fractures to her limbs and ribs, along with bruising. A helicopter was summoned to fly her to Youngstown hospital, but it did not fly because of foggy conditions, he said, adding that it was raining, the roads were wet and there was fog and haze in the area. Buckley and her daughter were taken to hospitals by ambulance. Farris did not know whether the weather was a contributing factor in the crash, but noted that the state police are investigating urther.

Linger suffered bruises and scrapes in the collision, he said.

No further hospital information about Buckley or Linger’s conditions or where they were treated was available on Friday morning.

Farris said both vehicles were completely destroyed.

He said there were no eyewitnesses to the collision other than Buckley and Linger. They told investigators that Houston crossed the center lane and they swerved to avoid him, and he swerved and struck their car head on near the center turn lane of the three lane road, Farris said, adding, “He was definitely left of center, there’s no question about that. Both of them tried to evade the accident and failed.”

adidas shell toes but who makes jerseys for the NFL

VF Majestic in Palmer Township has made all the on field uniforms for Major League Baseball since 2005, a run that will reportedly come to an end following the 2019 season.

Several media outlets have reported that Under Armour will outfit all big leaguers with uniforms beginning in 2020.

Here’s an overview of the uniform providers in the Big Four: MLB, National Football League, National Basketball Association and National Hockey League. While the MLB uniforms are made in the United States, VF Majestic’s parent company, VF Corp., had 77 percent of its products made by independent contractors, primarily in Asia, in 2015. Majestic’s reported replacement, Under Armour, has limited domestic manufacturing, with about 63 percent of its products last year made in China, Jordan, Vietnam and Indonesia. It is not yet clear where Under Armour would make the MLB uniforms.

NFL: Nike, based in Beaverton, Ore., last March extended its NFL on field apparel rights contract three years, making the deal good through the 2019 season, Sports Business Journal reported. As a company, “virtually all” of Nike’s apparel is made outside the United States by independent contract manufacturers, according to the company’s annual report. In fiscal 2016, the report states, contract factories in China,
adidas superstar high top but who makes jerseys for the NFL
Vietnam and Indonesia produced approximately 26 percent, 23 percent and 9 percent of total Nike brand apparel, respectively.

PALMER TOWNSHIP In August 2003, Majestic Athletic Ltd. as it was then known was named the exclusive supplier of uniforms to all 30 teams in Major League Baseball, a contract that started in 2005 and was considered a home run for the apparel company that got its start during the 1970s in the.

NBA: In June 2015, the NBA announced an eight year partnership that will make Nike the association’s official on court apparel provider, beginning with the 2017 18 season. Nike will become the first NBA apparel partner to have its logo appear on NBA uniforms. That announcement came three months after Adidas said it would not pursue an extension to its NBA apparel deal, which expires at the end of this season. According to the Adidas Group’s annual report, the company worked with 320 independent manufacturing partners in 2015, 79 percent of which were in Asia, 12 percent in Europe and 9 percent in the Americas.

PALMER TOWNSHIP Baseball has long been known as America’s pastime, a sport full of traditions such as the ceremonial first pitch, curtain calls and the seventh inning stretch.

Since 2005, one of those traditions has included outfitting all of its big leaguers with uniforms made in the Lehigh Valley.

NHL: In September 2015, the NHL announced a seven year deal with Adidas, based in Herzogenaurach, Germany, to produce its uniforms, starting with the 2017 18 season. Adidas will replace Reebok, which the Adidas Group bought in 2006. According to its annual report, Reebok CCM Hockey made around 3 million units of apparel in 2015. The majority was produced in Asia, while small portions came from the Americas (particularly Canada) and Europe, the report states.

John Ross doesn’t need no stinkin’ island.

The former University of Washington wide receiver is the new Usain Bolt of the NFL, as he broke Chris Johnson’s 40 yard combine dash record by running a lightning fast 4.22 in Indianapolis Saturday. Johnson ran a 4.24 back in 2008.

Adidas had created a widely publicized marketing stunt ahead of the Combine that if anyone were to break the 40 yard dash record in Adidas shoes they would receive an island (well, maybe) from the company. “And I don’t have a boat.”

It’s worth noting that, as Deadspin has already noted, the Adidas island give away is basically a scam in which they wouldn’t actually have had to give Ross an island had he worn their cleats for the run and that he would have had to enter an endorsement agreement with Adidas despite the company not indicating in their contest offer what the terms of a such a deal would be.

Ross, who coincidentally was wearing No. 42, actually resembled Bolt in that he actually pulled up before the end of the run and still was incredibly quick. That pull up was because of a calf cramp he felt during the run.

stock indexes finished barely higher Tuesday after a late slump erased most of an early gain. Technology companies recovered some of the losses they took a day earlier, but energy companies and banks slipped.

Strong gains for software company Red Hat and recoveries for big names like Apple and Facebook helped technology companies move higher. Cruise lines rose after Carnival had a stronger third quarter than analysts expected. Small company stocks continue to set record highs.

With little corporate or economic news to focus on, investors turned their attention to a speech by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen for clues about the Fed thinking on interest rates.

Yellen told a conference of economists that the Fed is puzzled that inflation remains so low. While she and other policymakers still think inflation will eventually reach the Fed 2 percent target, Yellen conceded that the Fed may need to change its assumptions.

Yellen also said the Fed should take care not to raise rates too slowly. JJ Kinahan, chief strategist for TD Ameritrade, said that was notable.

In Washington, Senate Republicans said they won hold a vote on their latest health care bill because it did not have enough votes to pass. On Wednesday, the Trump administration plans to release an outline of its ideas on changes to the tax code.

With long negotiations likely just beginning, Kinahan said investors don expect much to get done right away.

Carnival third quarter profit and revenue surpassed Wall Street expectations.

white adidas samba but the vaccine is for military only

04, 2013. could let a lesser known infection slip through the cracks. And even if more doctors checked for the flu like bug known as adenovirus, the vaccine to prevent it remains licensed for military use only.

That’s according to a new report published this week by the Centers for Disease Control in its journal, Emerging Infectious Diseases, which suggests the military’s exclusive vaccine be considered for civilian use.

Adenovirus can feel like the flu: Symptoms include fever, sore throat and diarrhea, the CDC notes.

But the lack of effective surveillance to assess its prevalence makes determining the toll of adenovirus difficult, the report says, and the lack of a vaccine could leave civilians living in cramped quarters needlessly vulnerable.

The study concludes that adenovirus type 4, discovered amid military outbreaks in the 1950s, may act as an underestimated cause of acute respiratory disease among civilian adults.

And compared to the flu at least, adenovirus may not have that. The flu causes between 12,000 and 56,000 deaths each year. A particularly bad outbreak of adenovirus in 2007 left 10 dead.

adidas boost shoes but spotlight is on Fleury in Game 6

military helicoptersThree goals in five minutes sparked sing song chants of FLEU RY! and might planted enough of a seed of belief for the Washington Capitals against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

All series the Capitals had struggled to beat goaltender Marc Andre Fleury, but he allowed four goals on 32 shots in the Penguins Game 5 loss Saturday night in probably his worst performance of the playoffs.

of the things that we trying to do are starting to have an effect, coach Barry Trotz said on a conference call Sunday. doesn hurt the psyche, that for sure, because I think it takes a little frustration out of your game if you finally crack through a little bit.

were sort of stuck in that two and three goal area and in a very important moment in the third period obviously in an important game, our guys delivered against him, so I think that gives us a boost of confidence. had stopped 133 of 142 shots through four games, making a mockery out of the core fundamental of hockey that having the puck more and putting it on net leads to success. He was the much hotter goaltender than reigning Vezina Trophy winner and again finalist Braden Holtby, who outdueled him in an emotional Game 5 as the Capitals avoided elimination.

still down, captain Alex Ovechkin said. take good moments of the game and move forward. best moments were the times they got the puck past Fleury, the 2009 Stanley Cup winner who was Matt Murray backup on the Penguins title run a year ago and is only starting because of the 23 year old injury. If Fleury has sprung a leak, the Capitals have the talent from Ovechkin down to make him pay.

been standing on his head this whole series, said Capitals winger Andre Burakovsky, who scored his first goal of the playoffs Saturday. been out chancing them almost every game and he been saving them. So he can do that this whole series. If we keep just pounding pucks he going to get tired.

thought he was solid, Sullivan said. made save after save for us. The goals they scored were good goals. I think we can do a better job in front of him. series the Capitals have been aiming to play better in front of Holtby, who had his best game of the series Saturday in stopping 20 of 22 shots. For them to force Game 7 on Wednesday, they need Holtby and the rest of the stars to continue to be the best players on the ice.

doesn matter, leaders or not leaders, top six, bottom six, said Evgeny Kuznetsov, who scored the Game 5 winner.

have to play all together like a team and we did (Saturday). We talk about win first game and then going to Pittsburgh and win another game. Now we have to focus on the second game, not think about the Game 7. BACK: Sidney Crosby played 19:10, the most among Penguins forwards, and had an assist in his return to the lineup five days after being concussed. He lamented some struggles for his line, but expressed no concerns about his health.

felt good, Crosby said. were some chances there. We just missed. Some nights you just don execute as well. I think there were some chances to be had there a few times and we just didn execute. TIME: Ottawa Senators Game 5 star Kyle Turris became the seventh player in NHL history to score three overtime winners in his first 40 Stanley Cup playoff games. In beating the New York Rangers Henrik Lundqvist to put Ottawa up 3 2 in the series, Turris joined Devin Setoguchi, Martin St. Louis, Niclas Wallin, Danny Gare, Rene Robert and Mel Hill in the record books and passed Daniel Alfredsson for the most in franchise history.

EXPERIENCED BLUESHIRTS: New York is facing elimination for the first time in these playoffs on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden, and coach Alain Vigneault hopes the collective experience serves his team well.

no doubt that for me experience, when you have it, is a good thing, Vigneault said on a conference call Sunday. is going to be an opportunity for our team to respond and to play a strong game in a pressure situation. IN SMASHVILLE: A 3 1 victory in Game 6 Sunday over the St. Louis Blues put the Nashville Predators in the Western Conference final for the first time in their 18 year franchise history. The Predators will face either the Anaheim Ducks or Edmonton Oilers for the right to come out of the West.

adidas caps But so were the ’90s

adidas gazelle og blue But so were the ’90s

Friends, like a number of old sitcoms, recently relaunched on Netflix and the beloved series has a brand new audience: millennials. Not old millennials like Drake and me (adults born in the ’80s who can remember Friends when it was on the air), but a younger cohort of millennials born in the late ’90s who were still in diapers when Ross pined for Rachel a sub demographic that is, shall we say, a little bit more sensitive to matters of social injustice. This group has taken to social media lately to condemn the show as “racist,” “homophobic,” “sexist,” “transphobic,” “fatphobic” and of course, the umbrella term for everything icky these days: “problematic.”

Like the majority of ’90s content, Friends is out of touch with modern norms and frankly, reality. It isn’t just the massive Manhattan apartments that stretch the imagination; it’s the utter lack of non white characters and extras on the show, painting an absurdly pale portrait of one of the most diverse cities in the world. It’s the endless jokes about Ross’ ex wife Carol who left Ross for a woman, a fact that in the less evolved ’90s raised doubts about Ross’ masculinity. (Though if there ever were a man who could turn a woman off his kind forever, I can’t think of a better candidate than Ross Geller). It’s the snide treatment of Chandler’s transgender dad, “Helena Handbasket,” the recurring theme of Monica’s weight, and of course, Joey’s general creepiness towards nearly every female who crosses his path. In short, it was a show of its time, not a show of our time, in which much of the above wouldn’t fly.

It isn’t a foolish or useless exercise to consume older entertainment with a modern eye to ask “What was different back then? How have attitudes changed? How haven’t they?” But it is foolish and pointless to demand that entities of the past absorb the lessons of the present. It’s also an unsophisticated demand as it ignores the progress many ’90s shows like Friends made in their representation of queer characters and working women on TV. These representations may have been imperfect and tokenistic but they were groundbreaking for their era.

For example, I try as hard as I can to abstain from using the word “gay” as a pejorative, but I find this nearly impossible, even though I am gay. This is because when I was a kid in the ’90s and early 2000s, “that’s so gay” was an expression equivalent to “that sucks” or “that’s lame,” one used daily to describe an edict from an unpopular teacher or a song by Enrique Iglesias. It’s hard to unlearn the slang you grew up with. This isn’t meant as a defence of the totally retrograde and yes problematic elements of Friends. But it’s a reminder to the show’s young critics that there will come a time when you are the old fogeys who did or said the wrong thing. Your grandkids, the victims of advanced climate change, will probably be shocked and appalled that you regularly forgot to recycle and hardly ever composted. Your great granddaughters, proud 22nd century feminists, will be horrified to learn that you once entered an office pool to determine the winner of a TV show called The Bachelor. Forget the ’90s. Your cause is best served in the here and now.

Because we live in such tumultuous political times, it’s easy to believe that today’s intense public focus on the Trump presidency is something new an obsession like none we’ve ever seen before. Yet to one degree or another, the president has always been at the center of the public’s attention.

This is because the president is the central actor in American government. The sheer complexity of our system, with its three branches, separation of powers and competing centers of power, demands someone who can make it work.

So we have high expectations for the president in this country. We want him or her to run the government efficiently and effectively, to work hard to resolve our problems, lead the world, inspire the nation, console us in times of disaster, serve as an example for young people, represent the national interest, and in a sense carry our hopes and desires for the country on his or her shoulders.

Which is why, no matter who’s president, there is enormous public curiosity about every detail of his life and actions. When I was in Congress, the subject would come up whenever I was back home in the district, at formal public meetings and in casual conversations. People wanted to know about his family, his personal characteristics, his strengths and failings, and what he was doing to make the country work.

This fascination is exacerbated by the news media, which focuses attention on the president and much less on Congress, a body that by its nature is diffuse and complicated.

Presidents are both ordinary and extraordinary. They have all the strengths, vulnerabilities and limitations of the rest of us. They may be perceptive, politically astute, even wise, but they all make mistakes the interning of Japanese Americans under Franklin Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan’s dereliction of duty in Iran Contra, the handling of the Vietnam War under LBJ.

Yet there’s also something out of the ordinary about the people who become president. You have to be driven by ambition to seek the office in the first place, as well as highly competitive and disciplined in both thought and speech. The most effective presidents are unusually persuasive. The greatest among them have a real connection to the American people, a sense of high moral purpose and the ability to summon Americans to reach toward that purpose.

Because as unremittingly difficult as the job is, in many ways the toughest part is persuasion: trying to build support for one’s goals. We talk about the president as being the most powerful person in the world, but over the decades I’ve been struck by how often presidents talk about the limitations on their power. Looking out from the White House, what they see are opposition and constraints.

Which may be why every president seeks to expand the power of the office, usually with some degree of success. This is not all bad presidents need power to get things done. But this trend has diminished the role of Congress and, fundamentally, of representative government. President Nixon had some 300 people on his staff; presidents these days may have as many as 2,000.

This has allowed the president to insulate himself. Presidents are hard to reach today. They don’t want to be scrutinized on policy, and far too often, Congress has played along. The presidential press conference has also faded in importance. Presidents rarely have to answer questions in a free wheeling give and take session with journalists or other politicians.

And so it’s harder to understand why the president does what he does now, why he makes the choices he does. Presidents need oversight and scrutiny, they need a Congress that will press them and insist on consultation. They get very little of that pressure today. Don’t get me wrong: I favor a strong president, but I also favor a strong Congress. And these days, we have a Congress marked by passivity and inability to exercise its constitutional responsibilities. I’m equally impressed by the responsibility we have as citizens in choosing our leaders. We get what and whom we choose. Presidents really do make a difference in our lives. No choice as a citizen is more important.

adidas football kit but retail closures are largely bypassing East Valley

adidas f50 adizero fg but retail closures are largely bypassing East Valley

While much of the country is dealing with the fallout of closures by major retail chains, the East Valley is experiencing largely positive trends in the sector.

But the region is not totally isolated from the closures as Walmart announced two weeks ago that it will shutter a Sam’s Club location in Chandler.

Commercial real estate firm Cushman Wakefield predicted that more than 12,000 stores could close nationwide in 2018 due to bankruptcies and store closings by chains like Sears, Stein Mart, Walgreens, Gap and Gymboree, according to a report from Business Insider.

Those national closures reached Chandler when Walmart announced it was closing one of its two Sam’s Club locations in the city.

On Jan. 11, Walmart issued a press release announcing that it would be closing 63 Sam’s Club stores across the country, including the location at 1375 S. Arizona Ave. in Chandler. The Chandler Sam’s Club will close to the public by Friday, Jan. 26.

Walmart has plans to convert up to 12 of the affected locations to eCommerce fulfillment centers, though it is unclear whether the Chandler location is included in those plans.

“We are in the process of identifying other locations to convert to an eCommerce fulfillment center and will have more clarity on locations in the coming weeks and months,” said Laura Ladd Poff, Walmart senior manager of corporate communications, via email.

The announcement came on the same day that Walmart heralded the recent tax reform bill passed by Congress and signed by the president and announced plans to increase wages, expand maternal and parental leave benefits and issue bonuses to some employees.

Despite the Walmart announcement, the national closures should have a limited affect on the East Valley as major retailers already closed locations in the area during and immediately after the Great Recession, said Brad Douglass, associate vice president at Cushman Wakefield’s Phoenix office.

“I don’t think the East Valley is going to experience a lot of closings,
adidas football kit but retail closures are largely bypassing East Valley
because a lot of that has already happened,” he said.

Douglass said that, overall, retailers in the East Valley have performed well over the last several years and the sector performed well over the holiday season.

Much of this success has been driven by non traditional uses in retail spaces. Medical users like doctors, dentists, orthodontists and urgent cares are increasingly interested in moving into retail space and have picked up the slack for companies that left throughout the recession.

The food and beverage industry is also driving retail growth as Phoenix area restaurateurs move east in search of alternatives to the crowded central Phoenix marketplace.

“A big focus that I think is playing out in the East Valley is a lot of the hip and local flavor restaurants are becoming over saturated in Arcadia and Central Phoenix and are now realizing there are lots of opportunities in downtown Gilbert, Queen Creek, downtown Chandler, south Tempe and east Mesa,” Douglass said.

He added, “I think that will grow as others see the success of those pioneers who have made those (inroads).”

He also expects developers and retailers to keep their eyes on emerging markets like downtown Chandler and Gilbert near the Agritopia development at Ray Road and the Loop 202 freeway.

“Downtown Chandler is a new one to watch,” Douglass said. “A lot of people in Chandler were envious of what downtown Gilbert did a number of years back, and I think the City of Chandler has done a lot to revitalize and redevelop (the area) with its own little revitalization of downtown.”

He pointed to the $25 million Overstreet development which will feature a Flix Brewhouse microbrewery and movie theater as an example of growth in the area.

In Gilbert, the fate of the Epicenter project which will function as a commercial hub for the Agritopia residential community could influence similar development throughout the East Valley.

“It will be interesting to watch once (Epicenter) breaks ground,” Douglass said. “It could lead to other mini urban cores in the Southeast Valley.”

Despite the influx of positive indicators, pockets in the East Valley are still struggling to attract retail users.

“Ever since the recession, parts of mesa and really particularly north Mesa and downtown Mesa and the surrounding area has seemed to struggle with the aging centers that are in need of redevelopment,” Douglass said.

He added that there is certainly an opportunity for redevelopment there but the area will likely need the introduction of a large employer or higher education user to spur new development.
