Geoffrey Miller highlights the five storylines to follow as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series visits Sonoma Raceway for the Toyota-SaveMart 350. /p
1. NASCAR's new king of the road?
Remember Yankees 52 CC Sabathia White 2010 All Star Jerseys back when you could basically predict a Jeff Gordon win at these road course events? Ah, those sure were easier times. But, alas, they've been gone for a long while.

Gordon hasn't won on the series鈥?two road courses since 2006 at Sonoma and 2001 at Watkins Glen. As a result, NASCAR has gone a while now without a resident "King of the Road."

For example, look no farther than Sonoma. Gordon's 鈥?6 victory was the last for a driver who had previously won at the track. Since then, Juan Pablo Montoya, Kyle Busch, Kasey Kahne, Jimmie Johnson, Kurt Busch and Clint Bowyer have been one-off and first-time Sonoma winners.

The story is a bit different at Sprint Cup's other road racetrack in Watkins Glen. Marcos Ambrose is a two-time defending winner there, and Tony Stewart has three wins at the New York track since 2004.

Should Ambrose win Sunday 鈥?his Richard Petty Motorsports team dedicated a test to Sonoma earlier in the season 鈥?it would mark three wins in the last four NASCAR road course races. It wouldn't quite match Gordon, but it'd put the V8 Supercars champion on a level pretty close in terms of road course dominance.

2. NASCAR finally decides to try something new in qualifying
If you've seen the attendance for NASCAR Sprint Cup qualifying at mostly every track in the last few years, you've realized that, to many, the format has lost its luster. NASCAR has yet to make a substantial change to fix some of that lost excitement on ovals, but it is making a change effective for this weekend's road course events.

It's about time.

Saturday, the Sprint Cup teams will qualify for Sunday's race at Sonoma Raceway in a group format. The cars will be evenly split in the groups and placed together based on practice speeds in the final practice session held Friday. Each group will have a set amount of time to qualify, and a driver's best lap during the timed period counts as the qualifying speed.

However, we don't know quite yet how many groups will run or how long the groups will be on the track. NASCAR's April news release on the subject says the race director will make that call. The weekend schedule has roughly one hour and 40 minutes set aside Cardinals 5 Albert Pujols Blue 2010 All Star Jerseys for Saturday's qualifying.

The Nationwide Series will use the same setup this weekend at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisc.

On Wednesday, a five-person Democratic Progressive Party panel approved former President Chen Shui-bian s application to rejoin the party. Mr. Chen, now serving a 20-year sentence at a prison hospital on corruption charges, left the pro-Taiwan independence party in 2008 of his own volition after he and his family were named in a batch of graft scandals.

Mr. Chen s membership status has been a divisive issue plaguing the already-fragmented party. Some analysts say keeping [url=http://www.latestsportsjerseys.com/nike-seattle-seahawks-11-percy-harvin-green-stitched-nfl-elite-drift-fashion-jersey-p-9.html]Harvin Green Jerseys[/url] distance from Mr. Chen over the past five years has helped the DPP to regain composure after its near-ruin in 2008. His application to return to the party was first pitched in May.

But some die-hard Taiwan independence supporters who view Mr. Chen, a former human-rights [url=http://www.latestsportsjerseys.com/2013-new-nfl-san-francisco-49ers-52-patrick-willis-black-jerseys-impact-limited-p-5680.html]san francisco 49ers 52 jerseys cheap[/url] lawyer, as a political prisoner oppressed by the ruling China-friendly Kuomintang (Chinese Nationalist Party) say the DPP has done little to clear his name.

Mr. Chen s deteriorating health in recent years has helped the pro-Chen faction to gain more traction inside the party. The 62-year-old, known for his quick wit and emotionally charged speeches, suffers from sleep apnea, non-typical Parkinson鈥檚 disease, mild cerebral atrophy and severe depression, according to his doctors. But he still wields immense power from behind bars and has said he would form a new party if the DPP refused to take him back.

Ex-DPP lawmaker Lin Cho-shui, who remains a party member and is now a news commentator, said welcoming a convicted official who is now the face of corruption sullies the party s reputation, a shameful disgrace.

From the view of political reality, by returning to the party, Mr.Chen will be the KMT President Ma Ying-jeou s best relief pitcher,鈥?Mr. Lin said. 鈥淢r. Chen s insistence on coming back will be a nightmare for any DPP leaders who are vying for a seat in the 2016 presidential election.

An editorial in the China Times (), a pro-China daily paper, said the move will make the party dirty by association and that any hopes voters had for the DPP are dashed.

Other analysts believe the timing of the party鈥檚 decision couldn t be better, as Taiwan is scheduled to hold a municipal election next year, followed by a presidential race in 2016.

The gesture of welcoming back a former leader [url=http://www.latestsportsjerseys.com/2013-super-bowl-xlvii-new-nfl-baltimore-ravens-74-oher-black-jerseyselite-p-1679.html]baltimore ravens #74 jerseys[/url] who has made significant contributions to Taiwan s democratization is definitely a smart and necessary move because now the party is shielded from criticism that it has been too cold-blooded to Mr. Chen, said National Dong Hwa University professor Shih Cheng-feng, calling the move an overdue one meant to appease the pro-Chen voters.

Before entering politics, Mr. Chen was a human-rights lawyer who defended dissidents in trouble with the government during martial law. He was one of the founders of the DPP. Under Mr. Chen鈥檚 leadership from 2000-08, Taiwan opened limited trade with China and started dialogue with Beijing about direct flights.

Lai I-chung, a researcher at Taiwan Thinktank, agrees that taking Mr. Chen back could help solidify the party s support base ahead of elections.

There are still too many unknowns and unpredictable elements about the 2016 election, but there is no question that by allowing Mr. Chen to come back, it will greatly enhance party unity and smooth out some internal rough patches, he said.

NEW YORK -- University of Oregon power forward was taken with the 54th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and will begin his professional career as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers. He is the first Iranian-born player selected in the NBA Draft.

Kazemi became the 38th UO player drafted into the NBA and first since Malik Hairston (48th by Phoenix) [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Rays-13-Carl-Crawford-Red-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-47/]Rays 13 Carl Crawford Red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] and Maarty Leunen (54th by Houston) [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Yankees-52-CC-Sabathia-White-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-62/]Yankees 52 CC Sabathia White 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] in 2008.

In his lone season with the Ducks, Kazemi was named to the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team and Pac- 12 All-Tournament squad, helping Oregon to the conference tournament title and a trip to the NCAA Sweet 16. A transfer from Rice, Kazemi became Oregon s leading rebounder, setting the school s modern single-season record with 350 boards - the most in over 57 years - while his 71 steals were the second-most by a Duck in a single campaign.



The weekend has brought with it more stories about the NSA and the work it鈥檚 doing keeping tabs on us all. Given the number of documents it is said that Snowden took with him it鈥檚 likely that we鈥檙e going to have many more weekends with many more such revelations.
As I pointed out here the NSA has been able to crack various smartphones for some :
The United States鈥?National [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/lsu-tigers-c-86_98]lsu football jerseys for sale[/url] Security Agency intelligence-gathering operation is capable of accessing user data from smart phones from all leading manufacturers. Top secret NSA documents that SPIEGEL has seen explicitly note that the NSA can tap into such information on Apple , BlackBerry devices and Google鈥榮 operating system.
The NSA has also been routinely breaking the encryption that many people use to try and reserve some modicum :
Since 2000, the U.S. National Security Agency has secretly cracked and bypassed much of the digital scrambling hundreds of millions of people rely on to protect the privacy of sensitive data, including medical [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/denver-broncos-c-115_442_452]Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys[/url] records, trade secrets, Web searches, Internet chats, and cell and land-line phone calls of Americans and others around the world, the top-secret documents revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden show.
Google is now trying to encrypt the information that it has on us so that the NSA cannot pry :
Google [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/miami-dolphins-c-107_123]miami dolphins jerseys 2013[/url] is racing to encrypt the torrents of information that flow among its data centers around the world in a bid to thwart snooping by the NSA and the intelligence agencies of foreign governments, company officials said Friday.
The move by Google is among the most concrete signs yet that recent revelations about the National Security Agency鈥檚 sweeping surveillance efforts have provoked significant backlash within an American technology industry that U.S. [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/indiana-state-c-86_395]indiana state football jersey[/url] government officials long courted as a potential partner in spying programs.
One would hope that they鈥檒l use an encryption method that the NSA hasn鈥檛 already broken. And the NSA does see3m to be claiming, internally, that鈥檚 it has access to pretty :
The National Security Agency is winning its long-running secret war on encryption, using supercomputers, technical trickery, court orders and [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/lsu-tigers-c-86_98]lsu football jerseys for sale[/url] behind-the-scenes persuasion to undermine the major tools protecting the privacy of everyday communications in the Internet age, according to newly disclosed documents.
The agency has circumvented or cracked much of the encryption, or digital scrambling, that guards global commerce and banking systems, protects sensitive data like trade secrets and medical records, and automatically secures the e-mails, Web searches, Internet chats and phone calls of Americans and others around the world, the documents show.
There is of course a reaction to :
Internet security experts are calling for a campaign to rewrite Web security in the wake of disclosures that the U.S. National Security Agency has developed the capability to break encryption protecting millions of sites.
But they acknowledged the task won鈥檛 be easy, in part because internet security has relied heavily on brilliant government scientists who now appear suspect to many.
Of course, the NSA鈥檚 ability to crack the encryption means that all those promises from the technology companies are no :
The files show that the National Security Agency and its UK counterpart GCHQ have broadly compromised the guarantees that internet companies have given consumers to reassure them that their communications, online banking and medical records would be indecipherable to criminals or governments.
And yes, there are more revelations to come., Glenn Greenwald assures :
I鈥檓 currently working on what I believe are several significant [url=http://www.latestfootballjerseys.com/oregon-ducks-c-86_94]oregon ducks 2013 jerseys[/url] new NSA stories, to be published imminently here, as well as one very consequential story about NSA spying in Brazil that will first be broadcast Sunday night on the Brazilian television program Fantastico (because the report has worldwide implications, far beyond Brazil, it will be translated into English and then quickly published on the internet).

ST. THOMAS - Ulla Muller Elementary School student [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Angeles-48-Hunter-red-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-35/]Angeles 48 Hunter red 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] Sakari Clendinen will meet first lady Michelle Obama next week and get to have lunch at the White House.
Sakari was this year's Virgin Islands winner in the Healthy Lunchtime Challenge, a recipe contest for children sponsored by Epicurious and the first lady's "Let's Move" initiative.
Sakari is one of 54 winners, selected from all [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Mets-7-Jose-Reyes-blue-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-41/]Mets 7 Jose Reyes blue 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] 50 states, three territories and Washington, D.C., to participate in the annual "Kids' State Dinner" at the White House on Tuesday.
The group of student chefs will join the first lady for a healthy lunch, featuring some of the winning recipes and a performance by singer Rachel Crow. Weather permitting, the children and their families then will take a tour of the White House kitchen garden.
Sakari loves to bake with her grandmother, Kathleen Taylor, who also is the school nurse at Ulla Muller School.
"I'm always harping on her about eating healthy," Taylor said.
The contest invited a parent or guardian to work with a child, age 8-12, to create a healthy and delicious lunchtime meal.
Sakari's favorite food to make is pancakes, so Taylor worked with her to create a healthy pancake recipe.
"So, I came up with zucchini pancakes," Taylor said.
All recipe entries had to comply with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's "MyPlate" nutritional criteria. The "MyPlate" system recently replaced the food pyramid as a way for people to ensure they eat balanced meals.
Contest entries had to represent each of the food groups, either in one dish or as parts of a lunch meal, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and low-fat dairy foods, with fruits and vegetables making up roughly half the plate or recipe.
Taylor said Sakari loved shredding the zucchini in the food processor and separating the eggs.
To garnish the pancakes, they made a greek yogurt and cream cheese mixture to dollop on top.
In order to make the lunch recipe fit the "MyPlate" criteria, the grandmother and granddaughter duo decided to make a fruit smoothie.
"We make smoothies all the time, because I have a lot of fresh fruit growing in the yard," Taylor said.
They made a passion fruit and banana smoothie using greek yogurt, honey and ice to make the frozen blended treat.
Only 8 years old, Sakari does not fully comprehend the experience she is about to have, according to Taylor.
However, Taylor, who is attending the White House luncheon with Sakari, is thrilled.
"I'm really excited. I'm just beside myself," Taylor said.
This is the second year of the first lady's recipe challenge, and Sakari is the second V.I. student to meet Obama and eat lunch at the White House.
Ulla Muller Elementary School sixth-grader Gabriel Reed Jr. and his mother, Vanessa Wilkinson, were chosen last year.
"Our Kids' State Dinner is one of my favorite events of the year, and the kid chefs who come from around the country never cease to impress and inspire me with their creativity and ingenuity. I'm counting down the days until the winners join me at the White House to celebrate these healthy and delicious meals that kids everywhere will love," Obama said in a written statement.

Many of us are easily swayed by get-healthy-quick schemes because eating healthy and working out are regimens not always easy to start or to maintain. They require discipline and patience.

ST. THOMAS - The Office of the Territorial Public Defender asked members of the Senate Finance Committee on Tuesday to consider a $4.5 million budget for Fiscal Year 2014.
The office's budget request is more than the $3.5 million suggested by [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-Boston-Red-Sox-20-Youkilis-Blue-Jerseys-4/]2009 All Star Boston Red Sox 20 Youkilis Blue Jerseys[/url] Gov. John deJongh Jr. in his FY 2014 budget proposal.
The agency was appropriated $3.1 million for FY 2013.
Acting Chief Public Defender Robert Leycock said the requested funding level will support the office's 36 employees and allow for more hiring.
"The time has come to expand our staff to improve on the current services we provide and relieve some of the burdens on the limited existing staff," Leycock said.
He said additional attorneys, counselors, an investigator, information technology personnel and secretarial staff are needed.
In addition to more staff, the office wants to construct a Public Defender's Office building in the St. Thomas-St. John District and asked senators to consider funding the capital project. The agency already has the property, it just requires funding for the construction, he said.
The expansion of staff is required as the territory's judicial system expands. The Public Defender's Office is responsible for providing legal representation to indigent clients in the V.I. Superior Court, the V.I. Superior Court's Magistrate Division and the V.I. Supreme Court.
The agency currently has 13 attorneys territorywide.
Overall, the [url=http://www.agoshow.net/2009-All-Star-Texas-Rangers-32-Josh-Hamilton-Blue-Jerseys-15/]2009 All Star Texas Rangers 32 Josh Hamilton Blue Jerseys[/url] office had 1,197 cases open as of May - 488 pending on St. Croix and 709 pending in the St. Thomas-St. John District. Trial attorneys can average anywhere from 50 to 130 cases a month within a one year span, according to Leycock.
"As the demand for public defense services rise, and the cost of litigation increases, funding must also increase," Leycock said.

What kind of resistance would Obama face on easing sanctions with Iran?The United States has enforced economic sanctions against Iran in some form or another since 1979's Iran Hostage Crisis,but they've intensified in recent years. They include restrictions on oil transactions, Iranian money transfers, and the assets of individuals or groups thought to be supporting terrorist organizations.In an exclusive interview with TODAY's Ann Curry, newly elected Iranian President Hassan Rouhani talks about Israel, [url=http://www.3dots.co.in/mcc_panel.html]Nike NFL Jerseys[/url] his viewpoints on previous president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the Iranian people's access to the Internet.Easing these sanctions would be a hard sell for the [url=http://adsin.net/side/Arizona-Cardinals-Jerseys.html]Arizona Cardinals Jerseys[/url] president, but it could be necessary to pursue a diplomatic path."If we are going to make any progress with Iran, we will have to give up something, and that's what they're going to ask for," Sick said. "We're going to have to confront the question of whether we care more about a deal with Iran or about our pressure with sanctions."But any move by Obama to ease the sanctions would face resistance from lawmakers.According to Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, "To ease up on sanctions without them taking credible action to stop their nuclear program that's leading toward nuclear weapons capability would be a big mistake."Ayotte was one of 76 senators who sent a letter to Obama last month urging him "to bring a renewed sense of urgency" [url=http://www.3dots.co.in/mcc_panel.html]New NFL Jerseys[/url] to dealing with the Iranian nuclear program.The letter said "until we see a significant slowdown of Iran's nuclear activities, we believe our nation must toughen sanctions and reinforce the credibility of our option to use military force" at the same time as it explores diplomacy.Among those signing the letter were the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., and the third-ranking Senate Democratic leader, Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y.Would talks with Iran injure Obama's standing with supporters of Israel?Obama has at times suffered from a tense relationship with the American Jewish community, a gap which Republicans have delighted at exploiting.After Obama outlined his conditions for the peace process in Israel, his Republican challenger Mitt Romney accused the president of throwing Israel "under the bus."That history forms the framework for any negotiations between the U.S. and Iran, the prospect of which the American Jewish community would meet with [url=http://adsin.net/side/Arizona-Cardinals-Jerseys.html]Custom Arizona Cardinals Jerseys For Sale[/url] skepticism.(Rouhani's refusal to definitively answer a question in his interview with NBC News' Ann Curry about his predecessor's denial of the Holocaust is particularly worrying, and the president also referred to Israel as a "warmongering" occupier.)Even J Street, a moderate pro-Israel, pro-peace group which supports a diplomatic approach to addressing Iran's nuclear ambitions, regarded Rouhani's comments toward the Holocaust with a degree of skepticism."Any time a world leader denies or skirts questions about the horrors of the Holocaust, it's a huge warning flag for the Jewish community, as it is for the entire world," said Dylan Williams, who still encouraged Obama to pursue negotiations with Iran.Other Jewish interest groups, like the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee, says nothing has changed since Rouhani took power."While President Rouhani's rhetoric is more positive than his predecessor's, since his election there has been no change in the nation's nuclear program," the group said in a statement Friday.Handout / ReutersIranian President Hassan Rouhani speaks during an interview with NBC's Ann Curry in Tehran, in this picture taken September 18, 2013, and provided by the Iranian Presidency. Congress and the Obama administration must continue to send a strong message that all options are on the table, and that the United States is prepared to use all instruments of American power to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon capability."Still, Obama won't face another election, somewhat blunting this variable's impact. And despite Republicans' effort to make inroads with Jewish voters, Obama beat Romney handily among that community, 69 percent to 30 percent, last fall.Are substantiveface-to-face nuclear negotiations betweenRouhani and Obama likely in New York?Probably not.


Futures Outlook for the Week of 06/27/13

Today I would like to spend some time on a [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Giants-55-Tim-Lincecum-Road-Cool-Base-Grey-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-79/]Giants 55 Tim Lincecum Road Cool Base Grey 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] currency that has always been a heavy hitter so-to-speak, but has seemed a bit range bound for those that like to watch it longer term. The Great British Pound, even while somewhat stagnant in the big picture, always has a great deal of volume/open interest. I believe that the Great British Pound has a great deal of potential.

Great British Pound
When discussing the Great British Pound, I believe that it is extremely important to look at its history as well as it鈥檚 current condition. Living abroad, when I was much younger, I remember the Pound being in the 1.50鈥檚 and 1.60鈥檚. The funny thing is that now, a ballpark 20 years later, the Pound is there again and has been for a while. I tend to liken this to a home base for the Pound. These levels tend to be the comfort zone for this currency.

Per the chart above, which shows the range on the Pound from around 1971 through to present times, you can see that we have used the 1.50 territory as a baseline many times. The broad spectrum for its comfort zone over the last 45 years or so is between the 1.50 and 2.00. Now that鈥檚 a little broad for our scope, so we鈥檒l bring it in a little tighter than that, but I really want you to be attentive to and note the 1.50 as a psychological level as well as for its inherent support level value.

On today鈥檚 Daily chart for the Great British Pound, I have highlighted in blue, the ascending lows that may assist us in forming a bullish trend. In addition, I have added a bold black line across our 1.50 territory. For those of you who like to trade the channels, you might look at a shorter term bullish opportunity off of the numerous days of failure that just preceded. Over the next number of days, I would be watching to see if the Pound can rally a bit from where it stands currently.

Per the Weekly chart, you can see once again the 1.50 area highlighted in bold black. In addition, I have marked an ascending channel that we have been building for the bulk of this year. Note that if we are able to find support here again after a few weeks of failure, you would have a nice bit of rally potential. If you are looking for a position that lasts for months, you would need to be a little bit attentive if you jump in bullish in nature, simply because channels at some point always break. For the near term, short term perspective, I expect a bit of a rally. The ascending channel supports that direction, but I raise a caution flag on this for the mid-term simply because this pattern is already well-built and duration without interruption could be questionable.

Now, we come to the Monthly chart which illustrates just how 鈥渃omfortable鈥?the Pound has been over the last 4 years give or take. What used to appear on this chart as a potential for an inverted pennant formation has not seemingly lost some of its edge. The terrible hit that the Pound suffered between 2008 and 2009 has been just slightly mitigated by the return to its comfort zone. Narrowing the broad 1.50-2.00 range here, the monthly focus for me is between the 1.50/1.51 area and the 1.64/1.65 territory. This is the real range to beat. Now, as we linger closer to the 1.50 than the 1.65, we [url=http://www.agoshow.net/Cardinals-50-Adam-Wainwright-Road-Cool-Base-Grey-2010-All-Star-Jerseys-94/]Cardinals 50 Adam Wainwright Road Cool Base Grey 2010 All Star Jerseys[/url] may find ourselves with the opportunity to watch this over the next number of years with the opportunity to pull itself up by its boot straps and really make some progress. The caveat of course, would be the potential for the 1.50 to be broken down, if the Pound is a bear in hibernation.

I tend to be bullish the Great British Pound for duration over the long term. I view the next number of days as a good short term bullish opportunity that might fit nicely into the potential development of what could become a longer term bullish trend. The levels that I have given you are extremely important to watch, but your first priority on the long term of course will be to respect the 1.50 and aim for 1.65. The duration of the Pound鈥檚 recent stay within these levels is a bit long in the tooth for me. I believe that this range needs to break and I would love to see it become bullish for the next number of years. If however, I am wrong, then those of you that are bearish only need to sit tight and watch for a significant break of 1.50 to evaluate your play.
