Boxing at the Military World Games

Posted on by

first_imgBy Dialogo July 13, 2011 I want information about all the boxing matches. Amateur boxing is among the competitions at the Military World Games. In this sport, the pugilists use a protective helmet, and there are five judges who electronically track the blows thrown during the fight. The winner is the one who lands more blows or who knocks out his opponent. In Rio, there will be only a men’s competition, in ten categories: light flyweight (between 46 and 49 kg), flyweight (up to 52 kg), bantamweight (up to 56 kg), lightweight (up to 60 kg), light welterweight (up to 64 kg), welterweight (up to 69 kg), middleweight (75 kg), light heavyweight (up to 81 kg), heavyweight (91 kg), and super heavyweight (over 91 kg). All bouts follow the same procedure. There are three rounds of three minutes each, with an interval of one minute. last_img read more

Dear CFPB, here’s the reality of how regulations impact credit unions

Posted on by

first_imgPutting an end to remarks from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that its regulations are, in fact, helping credit unions, the Credit Union National Association published a detailed report that outlines exactly how the new rules have suffocated growth.CUNA is a national association that advocates on behalf of all of America’s credit unions, which are owned by more than 100 million consumer members.CFPB Director Richard Cordray has commonly gone on record to denounce doomsayers who say that new regulations are killing the banks, especially when it comes to credit unions and community lenders.In response, CUNA submitted a letter to the CFPB detailing each of the ways the agency’s rulemakings have affected America’s roughly 6,000 credit unions.The letter also includes recommendations on how the bureau can improve its regulations to provide relief to credit unions and their members.“We urge the bureau to take immediate action and implement our suggestions for the protection of credit union members, who have fewer choices and are incurring increased costs due to CFPB rules,” said Jim Nussle, CUNA president/CEO. “CUNA, our state league partners, and credit unions—the original consumer protectors—stand willing to provide the CFPB any further details or analysis necessary to achieve regulatory relief, the ultimate goal of our Campaign for Common-Sense Regulation.” continue reading » 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Kevin De Bruyne winner sends Manchester City into semi-finals with victory over Paris Saint-Germain

Posted on by

first_imgKevin De Bruyne justified Manchester City’s faith in him by scoring the winner in a 1-0 win over Paris Saint-Germain to send Manchester City into the Champions League last four with a 3-2 aggregate success.Having spent two-and-a-half months out with ankle and knee ligament damage, the Belgium forward secured City’s place in the last four for the first time in their history by slamming home the decisive goal on 76 minutes after a 2-2 draw in the quarter-final first leg in Paris a week ago.De Bruyne was the outstanding player on the park, and it was fitting he found the winner to succeed for City against the runaway French champions, who were too strong for Chelsea in the previous round.There were plenty of empty seats and a palpable subdued atmosphere at the Etihad. Very odd for supposedly one of the biggest games in the hosts’ history. Inflated ticket prices might have had something to do with it.Defences were on top right from the off – not a statement we thought we’d be penning after last week’s first leg.However, City had the perfect opportunity to put themselves in the driving seat on the half-hour mark, but Sergio Aguero side-footed a penalty tamely wide after he was fouled by Kevin Trapp – his second miss from his last three Champions League spot-kicks. Neither side could find their rhythm and Laurent Blanc couldn’t seem to settle on a system – made even more difficult with Thiago Motta being withdrawn through injury just before the interval.In the second half, the quality levels remained low, with the visitors again struggling to utilise their attacking arsenal.Just when it looked as we were set for an unexpected stalemate, the only player who has shown any real quality in the whole tie stepped up to the plate.Nobody seemed to want to have a go at goal, so De Bruyne took it upon himself to do so, throwing a dummy before curling a sublime effort past Trapp to send the Etihad into raptures.Zlatan Ibrahimovic did have the ball in the net, but it was ruled out for offside. Again, on the big stage, the Swede rarely produced his best. It wasn’t pretty, but City will take a first semi-final appearance in the club’s history, while the questions over the Parisiens’ metal on the big occasion remain.Pep Guardiola could be at the Etihad sooner than first thought – what a story that would be!  –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
