Lebedev finishes with a 32-2-1 win-loss record, 23 by knockout (a loss to Guillermo Jones in 2013 was later changed to a no-contest when Jones failed a drug test).Interestingly, some argue that Lebedev might best be remembered for two losses: the one to Jones that was changed and a controversial split-decision against Marco Huck for the WBO cruiserweight title in December 2010.

Former world cruiserweight boxing champion Denis Lebedev announced his retirement Thursday at age 39, ending a lengthy and colorful career in the ring.Lebedev, who hasn’t fought since November, was hoping to face the then-unified cruiserweight champ Oleksandr Usyk, but the Ukrainian moved up to heavyweight in March. Then, after a planned bout against Frenchman Arsen Goulamirian collapsed last week, Lebedev apparently decided to retire.
The cadet basketball national team of B&H won against Lithuania in the final match of the Eurobasket with a result of 85:83, and thus became the champion of Europe. This is a great sports accomplishment. Samir Avdic, the former basketball national team player, commented on this incredible accomplishment.“This generation of guys led by Pandza, Numanovic and Zametica is a team that has shown its tremendous quality by winning the gold at the Olympic Youth Festival in Georgia. Another thing, they have shown that they had entered the European Championships with great self-confidence and readiness to achieve a good result. We all somehow surreptitiously hoped for them to win the medal. In the end, they managed to win the gold“, said Avdic.Avdic then noted that they have been up to the task in the key matches.“They have shown great decisiveness and willingness. In the matches against serious opponents, starting from the quarterfinals and Germany, the semi-finals and Spain and Lithuania in the finals, they have demonstrated that they simply did not even think of losing. They dominated on the court, demonstrated the maturity. Those guys know how to handle the situations on the field, to take the responsibility. They have presented devised basketball strategies and great unity. They also demonstrated great communication between the bench and the players. This team is an example of how one sports collective should work in B&H, and I might say in Europe as well”, Avdic said.In the end, Avdic praised the leader of the BH team Dzanan Musa.“First of all, I have watched a number of his matches. He is an extraordinary talent. B&H has a great future star in him. It should be specially emphasized that this is one exceptional young man who can be a role model to the future generations by his good manners, status in school, approach to training… On this occasion, I want to warmly congratulate his parents and his family for bringing up such a young man. He is an example of what one sportsman in B&H should look like”, Avdic concluded.(Source: klix.ba/ photo haber, avaz)

I bought this size by accident but omg they are so funny. They make brilliant orphan annie hair, i kid you not even on boob length hair. You do have to wind them all the way to the roots though and leave them in for like 4 hours.

There is nothing wrong with these rollers if you want to use them for styling but i could not sleep in them, the bar across the foam is too hard. When it said ‘large’ i did expect them to be large.

Leave them in over night and i have gorgeous hair for work. Lasts all day and i only needed one pack. I have been searching for this size of foam hair curler for many months – could get small ones and extra large ones but no large size. These large sized curlers are perfect for my shoulder length hair, creating soft waves rather than frizzy curls, so at long last my hair is looking its bestone small point – the hole in the foam is slightly too large for the spindle and so the curler can unwind when in place which is slightly annoying, but as this is the only product of this size on offer it is a small price to pay in order to look beautiful. Great bouncy curls that lasted two days. Bought these in several different sizes for more natural looking curls. Did not need any setting sprays/lotions or hair spray at all. Results may vary for those who have thicker or wiry strands of hair. I just put the curls in and wrap my head with a scarf to keep curlers in place while i sleep. These rollers are good and as advertised. I have bought this item from the chemist before so knew i would like item but i ordered large and they were not as big as normal. This size by accident but omg they are so funny. They make brilliant orphan annie hair. I bought this size by accident but omg they are so funny.

It “wasn’t simply opening up science books and teaching pages ripped from it,” Neil said during a Comic-Con press session. “It spent time learning, exploring how to make science matter to you as a human being, as a citizen, as a species with a capacity to reflect upon its own existence.”The new Cosmos comes with a renown science and entertainment pedigree, counting Ann Druyan, co-writer of the first Cosmos series alongside her late husband Carl Sagan, as a writer, along with director of photographer Bill Pope, known for his work in the Matrix trilogy, producer Brannon Braga, a Star Trek: The Next Generation alum, and Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane as an executive producer. The involvement of a comedian known for his crass jokes may seem surprising, but with his influence at Fox, Seth was the driving force behind bringing Cosmos to its 8 p.m. Sunday night spot beginning February 2014 on the network, and has included references to the original show in an episode of Family Guy. In fact, Ann recounted a conversation with Seth in which he told her that with the exception of this parents, no two people besides herself and Carl have had as much influence on his life.It’s with the big studio backing, that the show is able to include blockbuster-scale visual effects that blend “graphic novel”-style animations with space photos provided by NASA, and virtual sensations. As seen in the trailer above, Neil travels with viewers through locations in the universe. An impressive scene Brannon said they’re still working on shows “Neil on Mars, but as seen through the point of view of a rover. It’s following him around and handing him a rock, doing all this cool stuff.”Bringing the story of space and time is a deep passion of all those involved we spoke with during Comic-Con, which all but guarantees it gets translated to the show. “I have high expectations that it will change the mood of the country, so people will come to value science,” Neil said. Based on the crowd that greeted Neil, Ann, and Brannon during the Cosmos panel in one of Comic-Con’s biggest event rooms, the Indigo Ballroom, it’s a passion many viewers will hold as well. The group was met with standing ovations both when they entered and exited the stage, showing a fan base to rival the Hollywood mainstays in Hall H, and seemed ready to take on science exploration.For more from the Cosmos panel, check out this recap, complete with typical Neil deGrasse Tyson humor:Images via Kelly Schwarze and GettyMore stories from PopSugar Tech:A Victorian-Era Lomo Lens For a Modern SLRSeason 2 Secrets From the Boys of Orphan BlackMatt, Jenna, and Steven on the New Doctor, TARDIS Magic, and Who’s Next to LeaveWho Are the Guardians of the Galaxy?Doctor Who at Comic-Con Reveals His “Darkest Days” in 50th Anniversary Preview 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…

Share Frank Augstein/APMilitary forces continue investigations Monday into the nerve agent poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia. U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May says it is “highly likely” that it was carried out by Russia.British Prime Minister Theresa May says it is “highly likely” that Russia is behind the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter earlier this month in southern England.Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, were found collapsed on a bench on March 4 in the city of Salisbury. They remain in critical condition, according to The Associated Press.“It is now clear that Mr. Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia,” May told lawmakers in a statement on Monday. She said the agent has been identified as one of a group of nerve agents called Novichok, which Russia has previously produced.She added that there are just two explanations for the apparent poisoning — either Russia directly carried out the attack or it lost control of its supply of the deadly nerve agent. The Russian ambassador has been summoned to explain how this happened, May added, and has been asked to give a formal response by Tuesday.And if that response is not credible, May said, “we will conclude that this action amounts to an unlawful use of force by the Russian state against the United Kingdom. And I will come back to this house and set out the full range of measures that we will take in response.”This case has drawn parallels with a Russia-linked death of a defected Russian intelligence officer in 2006, as NPR’s Scott Neuman reported. Here’s more:“Skripal had retired from Russia’s SVR foreign intelligence service, a successor to the KGB, when he was arrested and convicted in 2006 of working undercover for Britain’s MI6. In 2010 he arrived in the U.K. as part of a prisoner swap between Moscow and Washington.”When the BBC asked Russian President Vladimir Putin whether Russia was responsible, he replied: “Get to the bottom of things there, then we’ll discuss this.”“Having established that a nerve agent is the cause of the symptoms leading us to treat this as attempted murder, I can also confirm that we believe that the two people who became unwell were targeted specifically,” Metropolitan Police counterterrorism chief Mark Rowley said at a news conference last week, Scott added.Nerve agents are “designed only to kill,” Leeds University toxicologist Alastair Hay told NPR. The weapons “work by blocking the message from the nerves to the muscles,” which could affect the muscles used to breathe, potentially causing asphyxiation.“Trace contamination” was found at two Salisbury establishments — The Mill Pub and Zizzi Restaurant — England’s chief medical officer announced Sunday, as NPR’s Amy Held reported. People in those establishments on March 4 or 5 were encouraged to clean the clothes they were wearing or wipe down belongings.At the same time, officials stated that there is “no immediate health risk.” A policeman who was responding to the incident, Det. Sgt. Nick Bailey, remains in “serious but stable condition,” May said Monday.Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.
