he Tokyo Olympics. My me

by Xinhua writer Fei Liena

BEIJING Authentic James McCann Jersey , Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- It has been a testing time for Russia, widely regarded as the world's toughest nation and nicknamed the "Polar Bear."

After being publicly humiliated by Uncle Sam last December with expulsion of 35 of its diplomats in the U.S., Russia chose to suck it up. Yet who would have thought, the more one gets, the more one wants.

A few days ago Authentic J. D. Martinez Jersey , the American parliament overwhelmingly approved a sanctions bill on Russia for its alleged intervention in Ukraine and meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

This time it's more than the Polar Bear could bear. It finally showed its teeth by demanding the United States cut 60 percent of its diplomatic staff in Russia, totalling 755 people, by Sept. 1.

It is a typical Putin style tit-for-tat revenge -- an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. "We will not leave anything unanswered," Russian President Vladimir Putin said.

Though a strongman Authentic Ian Kinsler Jersey , Putin was not always that strong. After years of waiting, he once found the apple of his eye -- Donald Trump.

During the American election last year, Putin openly called Trump a "colorful" and "talented" person. To return the favor, Trump, complimented Putin as "a leader Authentic Francisco Rodriguez Jersey , far more than our president has been," referring to then-U.S. President Barack Obama.

The two presidents met face-to-face for more than two hours at the Hamburg G20 summit in July -- well beyond the scheduled 35 minutes. The prolonged conversation even wore First Lady Melania Trump out that she had to barge in the meeting, trying to put an end to it.

She obviously failed as her husband and Putin talked for another hour.

But the Trump-Putin bromance wasn't fated to last. Soon enough, the U.S. Congress, like a meddling mother-in-law Authentic Denny Mclain Jersey , decided to impose new economic sanctions on Moscow, and forced Trump to sign the bill.

For Russia, all the waiting for the United States to turn for the better has ended up with nothing.

Out of rage, Russia fought back. "Trump's administration has shown its total weakness by handing over executive power to Congress in the most humiliating way," Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Facebook.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said Washington was "sliding ever deeper into the primitive ideology of the Cold War era."

People say Russia's expulsion of American diplomats marks the harshest diplomatic move since the Cold War Authentic Daniel Norris Jersey , but I think Putin has made some reservation out of hope for a warmer relationship in the future.

Not only Russia leaved the American side to choose which diplomats to withdraw, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also announced on Sunday that Russia is prepared to "normalize the dialogue" with the United States.

Despite the obvious mutual appreciation between Putin and Trump, the U.S.-Russia honeymoon appears to be over, at least for the time being.

Gong Lijiao

CHINA’S Gong Lijiao ended her long wait for a global outdoor title when she won the shot put gold at the world championships on Wednesday Authentic Cameron Maybin Jersey , utterly dominating the competition in the absence of reigning champion Christina Schwanitz and four-time champion Valerie Adams.

The 28-old-year had won five silver and bronze medals at the world championships and Olympics but a gold had always eluded her until a chilly, wet night at the London Olympic stadium.

Gong made of light of the conditions as she broke 19 meters with five of her six attempts and won with a fifth throw of 19.94 meters, in the process winning China’s first gold in London.

There were only two other throws over 19 — Anita Marton’s final effort of 19.49 which won silver for the Hungarian and American Michelle Carter’s third throw of 19.14 which took bronze.

Gong was left delighted with China’s first shot put title since Huang Zhihong won her second gold in Stuttgart in 1993, saying: “I competed more this year to be ready for these championships.

“It is 24 years since China won a shot put medal, so it’s a very special moment for me. Of course Authentic Anthony Gose Jersey , the rain affected the competition and that is the reason we didn’t go past 20 meters tonight.”

Gong added: “My next goal is, of course, the Tokyo Olympics. My memories of London 2012 are mixed because I was third originally, then I was moved to second later. I didn’t like the way that happened. So I am glad to show all the hard work I’ve done in the past with this gold medal.”

Gong first appeared one the scene as an 18-year-old at the 2007 world championships where she finished seventh.

She won Olympic bronze in Beijing in 2008 and silver in London in 2012 as well as world silver in Beijing two years ago.

Gong was agonizingly close to ending that run in Beijing when she threw 20.30 in the opening round but lost out to German Schwanitz by 7 centimeters.

Do you play pokies on a regular basis, therefore – how frequently? Once per week? Two times a week? Or maybe you play slots and online pokies even more often than that!

Some people happen to be recognized to spend an hour or two every day playing farmville – and when you’re the kind of player who likes regular games of pokies if not ensure that you’re having your money’s worth in every aspect.

One of those aspects would certainly have to be the reward programs and loyalty cards that some casinos offer.
