SYDNEY puma suede heart satin australia , March 17 (Xinhua) -- Australia's peak professional medical body called on Tuesday for the sport of boxing to be banned after a boxer died.

 

The renewed demand from the Australian Medical Association (AMA) came hours after the boxer's final bout.

 

Professional Queensland boxer Braydon Smith fell into a coma 90 minutes after a fight and did not recover.

 

The 23-year-old collapsed after his featherweight bout against Filipino John Moralde.

 

"We believe that a so-called sport where two people knock each other in the head as often as you possibly can to win a bout seems rather barbaric," Queensland AMA president Dr. Shuan Rudd told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

 

RIO DE JANEIRO, June 21 (Xinhua) -- Brazil's 1970 World Cup winning captain Carlos Alberto has urged new national coach Tite to relieve Neymar of the team's captaincy.

 

The Barcelona forward was named captain by former coach Dunga when the latter took charge of the Selecao for a second time after the 2014 World Cup.

 

But Alberto said Tite, who replaced Dunga this week after Brazil's group-stage elimination from the centenary edition of the Copa America, said it was time for a change.

 

"If I was the national coach, the first thing I would do would be to ask Neymar to have the humility to return the captain's armband so the coach can choose another player," Carlos Alberto was quoted as saying by the Sambafoot news portal. "It does not suit him to be captain.

 

"Pele was never captain. Neither was Garrincha, or Ronaldo, Rivaldo or Nilton Santos. Why does Neymar have to be captain of the national team?"

 

Neymar, who missed the Copa America after Barcelona refused to release him for the tournament in the US, has been criticized for his recent international performances, which have been marked by ill-discipline and a lack of goals.

 

The 24-year-old was replaced as captain during the continental tournament by Inter Milan center-back Miranda.

 

"It would be better to let him play and free him from the responsibility of leading the group," Alberto said. "Leave him free to just think about playing football. He would do more for the team than he has done. I would leave Miranda as captain."

 

Alberto added that the captain should be decided by both the national coach and Brazil's football confederation.

 

WELLINGTON, Aug. 7 (Xinhua) -- New Zealand government is providing funds to plant more new forests to prevent soil erosion, with 15 puma basket heart patent australia ,000 hectares of new forests to be planted by 2020, an official said on Monday.

 

A total of 5,183 hectares of new forest will be planted by 101 applicants who have received support through the 2017 Afforestation Grant Scheme (AGS) funding round, Associate Minister for Primary Industries Louise Upston said in a release.

 

Estimates suggest that 1.1 million hectares of land is at serious risk of erosion puma basket heart australia , and "forest cover is the best form of erosion control," said Upston.

 

The AGS, administered by the Ministry for Primary Industries, aims to establish new forests by providing grants of 1 fenty puma slippers australia ,300 NZ dollars (959 U.S. dollars) per hectare to successful applicants.

 

The latest funding round drew 40 applications and 400 hectares more than last year's, which brings the total number of hectares funded through the AGS since 2015 to 12,451, putting it well on track to achieving the 2020 goal of 15 puma creepers velvet australia ,000 hectares, Upston said.

 

New forests created through the AGS will improve land-use productivity and regional economic development, she said, adding that it will also deliver environmental benefits such as reducing soil erosion puma creepers blue australia , improving water quality and absorbing around 1.9 million tonnes of carbon every year.

CAPE TOWN, Jan. 15 (Xinhua) -- South Africa, previously an exporter of grain, will have to import five to six million tonnes of both white and yellow maize due to a severe drought puma creepers green australia , Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Senzeni Zokwana said on Friday.

 

Combining with the predicted regional needs such as Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Namibia puma creepers purple australia , Botswana and Swaziland, import needs will be at 10. 9 million tonnes covering other commodities such as soya and wheat, the minister said at a press briefing in Pretoria.

 

From the food security perspective, South Africa's infrastructure might struggle to cope with the volume of maize imports required if a drought exacerbated by the El Nino weather phenomenon further decimates the local crop puma creepers grey australia , Zokwana said.

 

Zokwana said South Africa's agricultural production has been severely affected by the drought, veld conditions are very poor and crop farmers could not plant their crops during the planting season due to inadequate rainfall.

 

South Africa is currently in the grips of the worst drought in 23 years as a result of the El Nino weather pattern. The last El Nino that affected South Africa so extremely was back in 1992. The current El Nino is worldwide and is estimated to last for several more months.

 

Most areas of the country received below-normal rainfall coupled with high temperatures during the late part of the 201415 summer season, according to Zokwana.

 

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) has reprioritised 305.3 million rand (about 18.5 million US dollars) towards drought relief.

 

In addition puma creepers brown australia , the DAFF, together with the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform, has committed about 66.4 million ra. Cheap Jerseys China   Cheap Jerseys China   Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Authentic NHL Jerseys   Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping   Cheap NCAA Soccer Jerseys   Wholesale Jerseys From China   Wholesale Jerseys China   Wholesale Football Jerseys   Wholesale College Jerseys
