PARIS nike air max 2017 blanche et noir , Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- The 2022 World Cup in Qatar will be held in the winter instead of the usual June-July period, FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke said on Wednesday.

"The dates for the World Cup (in Qatar) will not be June-July," Valcke told Radio France.

"To be honest, I think it will be held between November 15 and January 15 at the latest."

"If you play between November 15 and the end of December that's the time when the weather conditions are best, when you can play in temperatures equivalent to a warm spring season in Europe, averaging 25 degrees.

"That would be perfect for playing football."

The scheduling of the tournament has been hotly debated ever since it was controversially awarded to Qatar in December 2010.

It's concerned the blistering summer in Qatar would put players in danger.

BEIJING nike air max 2017 blanche et grise , March 25 (Xinhua) -- China's lottery sales in February dropped 9.4 percent year on year to 22.45 billion yuan (3.44 billion U.S. dollars), official data showed on Friday.

The February figure was also less than the 32.64 billion yuan's worth of sales in January.

Welfare lottery sales shrank 5.2 percent to 12.34 billion yuan, while sports lottery sales tumbled 14.1 percent to 10.11 billion yuan, the Ministry of Finance said.

January and February's sales combined dropped 13.9 percent from the same period in 2015 to 55.1 billion yuan.

Despite the overall downward trend, 16 provincial-level regions saw their lottery sales rise in February, with Jiangsu nike air max 2017 blanche et bleu , Hubei, Hebei, Henan and Liaoning climbing the most.

The sales revenues are used to cover administrative fees as well as the jackpot, and the rest to improve social welfare and sports facilities.

Denmark will take on Montenegro in its second qualifier on Saturday and is scheduled to play Uruguay in the third and final of the qualification matches on Sunday.

THE HAGUE, June 28 (Xinhua) -- Giant pandas Wu Wen and Xing Ya may possibly make their appearance on Dutch soccer fields, as Marcel Boekhoorn, the owner of the Dutch zoo where the pandas are currently residing, is trying to get their image placed on the shirts of the players of Dutch soccer club NEC.

The coming of the two pandas to the Netherlands was partly made possible by Boekhoorn nike air max 2017 blanche homme , a 57-year-old businessman who, next to owner of the Ouwehands Zoo, also is an important sponsor of NEC, a First Division soccer club from the Dutch City of Nijmegen.

The billionaire told Dutch local media Omroep Gelderland on Wednesday that he is sure that the unique animals will appear on the outfit of his favorite club.

NEC does not want to confirm the deal yet, but does confirm that negotiations are ongoing. "We are holding talks and are looking at how we can give shape to this. But for that, we also need EnergieFlex nike air max 2017 blanche ," a spokesperson of the club told Omroep Gelderland. Dutch energy supplier EnergieFlex is the current shirt sponsor of the club, with a contract running until July 2018.

After 16 years of consultations and preparations, male giant panda Xing Ya and female Wu Wen arrived at Ouwehands Zoo in the Dutch city of Rhenen on April 12 this year, as a symbolic gift to the Netherlands by China. After six weeks in quarantine, they were seen by the public for the first time on May 30. The three-and-a-half-year-old pandas will stay at the Dutch zoo for 15 years.

BEIJING, Feb. 18 (Xinhuanet) -- Football helmets currently used on the field may do little to protect against hits to the side of the head nike air max 2017 soldes , which can lead to brain injury and encephalopathy, according to a study in media reports Tuesday.

In order to make their findings, a research team in Florida modified the standard drop test system that tests impacts and helmet safety.

It used the head and neck of a crash test dummy and placed sensors within it in order to measure the damage inflicted by a 12 mph impact.

Researchers conducted 330 tests to determine how well 10 football helmets protected against brain injury.

The result shows that the most effective football helmets reduced the likelihood of concussion by only 30 percent, compared to not wearing a helmet.

John Lloyd, the study author and the research director at San Antonio, Florida-based Brains nike air max 2017 rouge homme soldes , stated that: “That may be because it was lighter than the other helmets, causing the head and neck to rotate less. It wasn't as good at providing protection against direct impacts that might shatter the skull, and didn't perform as well on standard tests”.

“Protection against concussion and complications of brain injury is especially important for young players, including elementary and middle school, high school and college athletes, whose still-developing brains are more susceptible to the lasting effects of trauma nike air max 2017 rouge homme ,” said study co-author Frank Conidi, director of the Florida Center for Headache and Sports Neurology.
