A T-SHIRT DESIGNED FOR FRIENDS

AT&T <b>Inc.<br></b> said it entered a <b>definitive</b> agreement with Deutsche Telekom AG to acquire T- Mobile USA in a cash-and-stock transaction currently valued at approximately $39 billion.<br> Lawmakers on Monday were said to have <b>struck</b> <b>a</b> deal on new regulations for newspapers, potentially one of the strongest peacetime press curbs in three centuries.Australia's coach says the full-back faces lifelong challenges on and off the field but insists the <b>player</b> has <b>grown</b> strongerRobbie Deans seemed an exasperated man, even before he had learned of the IRB's decision to appeal against <b>the</b> James <b>Horwill</b> <b>verdict.</b> On Thursday afternoon he said that the decision was "just and fair".<br> Later that evening he found out that the <b>IRB</b> disagreed.<br> Deans had only just finished dealing with another<br><img src="
; unwelcome distraction. He has had to rebuke Kurtley Beale and James O'Connor after <b>the</b> two <b>players</b> were photographed out and about in Melbourne at 4am on Wednesday morning. "Suffice to say," Deans said "it was not a comfortable conversation."The same goes<br><img src="
; for the ensuing press conference. Deans has shown patience with his team, making only <b>two</b> <b>enforced</b> <b>changes,</b> but he does not have much for the press.<br> "It is obviously not best practice in terms of sleeping habits," was pretty much all he had to say about the issue at first, though he went on to address what<br><img src="
; he described as the "lifelong challenges" facing Beale in particular.Deans <b>reckons</b> that Beale's slip-ups off the field <b>have</b> helped him cope with his slip-ups on it. Missing those two kicks in the first Test, Deans said, "would be tough circumstances for any young man to experience, and it has the potential to affect his self-belief, but I think what he has been through in recent <b>times</b> has made him <b>a</b> much stronger character". Beale checked <b>himself</b> into an alcohol rehab clinic in May."Kurtley has got a<br><img src="

; hours but, that aside, Deans was impressed with the way the 24-year-old <b>has</b> coped with the disappointment of the first Test.<br> "Kurtley is a lot stronger now than <b>a</b> couple of years back and he has shown that in the way he has taken to his work this week. I have no <b>doubt</b> that he dealt with that disappointment a lot more effectively than he may have previously."Adam<br> Ashley-Cooper who, like<br><img src="
; Christian Leali'ifano, has recovered from the injury he sustained last weekend and been named in the team for Saturday, echoed Deans when he <b>said</b> that the <b>pair's</b> late night was "not ideal". Ashley-Cooper added that Australia's senior players <b>would</b> address the<br><img src="
; misdemeanour after the series but for now<br><img src="
; the team were "too far into our preparation<br><img src="
; to worry about <b>that</b> <b>or</b> be distracted by it".Deans<br> has kept faith in O'Connor too, picking him to play fly-half despite the fact that, as the coach has said, he didn't <b>have</b> "a perfect performance" there last week.<br> Many wondered whether Beale might <b>start</b> in the position instead, but he is named at full-back, which means Israel Folau will stay out on the wing."It is a tough role at 10 â€“ whoever we put there was going to be under pressure," Deans said. "I <b>felt</b> James did well in guiding the group back into the game, i. In the circumstances, in all the carnage, it was never going to be flawless, it was never going to flow." <b>A</b> week's training, <b>he</b> says, is going to help his team be <b>"more</b> fluent".The only changes were made necessary by the injuries <b>to</b> Digby Ioane and Berrick Barnes. Beale takes over from Barnes, and Joe Tomane <b>replaces</b> Ioane <b>on</b> the left wing. Tomane, like Folau, has only one cap, used to play rugby league, <a href = "
</a> sizeable bloke and a strong runner.<br> They make for an intimidating back three. "Their potential is huge," Deans said. "The sky is the limit."<br> Ashley-Cooper said <b>that</b> after reviewing the first Test, the Wallabies were "hoping to have more attacking opportunities this week. It will be nice to get the ball <b>to</b> the likes of Izzy and Joey out on <b>the</b> edges, and use the spaces out <b>wide."They</b> will have <b>a</b> reliable goalkicker too, now Leali'ifano is back. He reckoned he might have been able to play on last week, even after "taking a nap <b>on</b> the turf at the Suncorp", but was ruled out when the doctor asked him if he could remember the score from the Lions tour match against the Waratahs. "I struggle to remember that now," he said with a chuckle.<br> "I <b>was</b> hoping they would ask me who my mum and dad were or something."The Australians shrugged off Warren Gatland's words about how Beale had fluffed his kick because he was wearing moulded<br><img src="
; studs â€“ "gamesmanship", said Deans â€“ but they may want to give them a little more thought than that. The roof will be closed at the Etihad but the turf there is notoriously hard and slippery.<br> AFL players were complaining about it tearing up in divots at the start of their season in March.<br> And Australia cannot afford any more slips."Last<br> <b>week</b> was fast and it was furious," said Deans, sounding almost enthusiastic for the first time.<br> "And this is going to be the same again.<br> It is going to be a ripper."Lions<br> tour 2013Australia rugby <b>union</b> teamRobbie DeansBritish & Irish <b>LionsRugby</b> unionAustralia sportAndy Bullguardian.co.uk © 2013 Guardian News and Media Limited<br><img src="

Still, it's a moment to savour for the club who came from a park in Southgate."It's<br> a big achievement for us," said Mark McCall, before casting his mind back not 15 years ago but a mere four.<br> "When this project started, the one thing we craved more than anything <b>else</b> was consistency.<br> Saracens had been so inconsistent through the professional era.<br> Steadily, we've been there or thereabouts. This will be our fourth consecutive semi-final and the first time we've finished top in Saracens' history.<br><img src="

So it was merely 13-0 when Bath, chasing the possibility of a place in next season's Heineken Cup, finally turned their minds to the task in hand."At one stage, I thought, if we don't show good character we could get a good hiding here," confessed Mike Ford,<br><img src="

; take for <b>granted</b> these days. Gavin Henson is probably on the way.<br> "We have a spot open for a third 10," said Ford, whose son George has been recruited to generate some young-buck competition for Tom Heathcote in that position.<br> <b>"We're</b> still looking, and Henson's not been signed by anyone."Toby<br> Faletau continues to be linked to the club, who are saying goodbye to two No8s this summer. Faletau would provide competition for Leroy Houston, the former Queensland Red, who has <b>already</b> signed, while two front-row forwards of the most fearsome kind â€“ in other words, Argentine â€“ will lend their weight to next season's efforts. Add in a couple of <b>lively</b> scrum-halfs and a hand-picked selection <b>of</b> London <b>Irish's</b> finest young talents, and you can see why the <b>Bath</b> faithful might start to expect some <b>returns</b> from Bruce Craig's investment.Craig<br> will hope that the road is <b>less-pockmarked</b> and more sharply inclined than that endured by Nigel Wray, Saracens' chairman.<br> But, nearly <b>20</b> years after he first looked on Bramley Road and sensed a future, his club are where he wants them to be. Finishing top of the table may not mean what it used to back <b>when</b> Bath were doing it as a matter of routine but it is another milestone for a club who are now passing them with increasing regularity.Saracens: Wyles; Ashton (Maddock, 72), Tomkins, Farrell, Strettle; Hodgson (Taylor, 55), De Kock (Wigglesworth, 53); Vunipola (Gill, 62), Brits (Smit, 55), Stevens (Nieto, 62), Borthwick (capt; <b>Botha,</b> 53), Hargeaves (Kruis, 71), Brown, Saull, WrayTries Ashton, Vunipola, Farrell Con Farrell Pens Farrell 2Bath: <a href = "

Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen create a little bit of history against Australia but will still be disappointed with 110-run standIt is one of those obscure statistics in which cricket specialises, and becoming England's fourth most prolific partnership will have given neither Alastair Cook nor Kevin Pietersen any great pleasure.<br> With this taut Test on a knife-edge, both knew they really needed to do more.They had drawn deep on their skill and temperament, both fed <b>by</b> considerable experience, to bat through the evening session on Thursday, keeping their cool in the middle <b>while</b> the England dressing <b>room</b> raged about the dismissal of Jonathan Trott.<br> But resuming at 80 for two, the lead was only 15. Far more was required, so that the dashers of England's lower middle order â€“ Jonny Bairstow, Matt Prior and those below â€“ could play with some freedom.Getting through the first hour was a minimum requirement but that was much easier said than done. The pitch is slow, <a href = "
of ezine </a> was swinging and an Australia attack that combined variety with discipline was imaginatively utilised <b>by</b> Michael Clarke. Above all there was the pressure of the situation â€“ the low-scoring nature of this Test has given it <b>the</b> feel of a penalty shootout that lasts <b>for</b> days rather than minutes.Cook dug in much as he had in Mumbai last November, <b>when</b> <b>the</b> pair put on 206, a partnership that transformed the series against India. Here, for the<br><img src="
; most part, Pietersen also played with admirable restraint.<br> There was the heartâ€‘stopping exception of a whip to leg against Mitchell Starc which flew over cover, but as the stand passed three figures and England's <b>lead</b> ticked into the 50s, a degree of security beckoned.However, Pietersen could not last the hour. At 11.59am, he slashed at a short ball from James Pattinson, and dragged it on to his stumps. He had scored 64 of the 110 they shared, with Cook still<br><img src="
; to reach his <b>50.</b> But there was frustration rather than satisfaction <b>in</b> his return to the familiar Trent Bridge pavilion.In the process Cook and Pietersen had overtaken the 3,339 runs Jack Hobbs and Herbert Sutcliffe put on together between 1924 and 1930,<br><img src="
; albeit in 15 more partnerships than the famous new-ball neutralisers required.<br> The only pairs above them now are Marcus Trescothick and Michael Vaughan (3,529), Mike Atherton and Alec Stewart (3,687) and Cook's <b>own</b> alliance with Andrew Strauss (5,253).<br> But <b>with</b> their <b>3,362</b> runs together <b>having</b> come <b>at</b> an average of almost 66 per stand, Cook and Pietersen are second only to Hobbs and Sutcliffe (87.86)<br> in England's top 14.Is there any significance in this? <b>Pietersen</b> has also enjoyed productive middle-order combinations <b>with</b> Paul Collingwood (with <b>whom</b> he put on 2,642 runs at an average of 60) and Ian Bell (2,640 at 55).<br> But he never seemed to hit it off in the middle with Andrew Strauss â€“ their 37 partnerships totalled 1,037 averaging only 28, even if they contained the odd memorable moment such as Pietersen's exuberant <a href = "
</a> his captain emerged from a lean trot <b>with</b> a century against <b>West</b> Indies at Lord's last year.It<br> is generally accepted that Cook played a key role in the decision to reintegrate Pietersen into the England team between Strauss's <b>retirement</b> at the end of last summer and the start of the <b>India</b> tour. He wanted Pietersen <b>in</b> his team, if nothing else they have spent many hours admiring each other's batting from the <b>non-striker's</b> end.<br> But neither would have taken huge satisfaction from this stand, knowing that when Cook <b>became</b> Ashton Agar's first Test victim three overs after Pietersen's departure, and the ball after reaching his first half century in seven Tests at Trent Bridge, the job was far from done.Ashes 2013England cricket teamAustralia cricket teamAlastair CookCricketThe AshesAustralia sportAndy <b>Wilsonguardian.co.uk</b> © 2013 <b>Guardian</b> <b>News</b> and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.<br> All rights reserved.<br> | Use of <b>this</b> content is subject to our Terms & Conditions | More Feeds As the government pursued the scientific mysteries of Fridayâ€™s exploding meteor, residents <b>reacted</b> to their survival with giddy relief and humor.

The residue of these experiences is captured by the concept and language of emotion ... [including the emotions <b>of</b> fear, anger, desire for vengeance, resentment, and contempt]. These emotions can become resources for political entrepreneurs. A broad range of Western interventions are based on a view of human nature as narrowly rational.<br> Correspondingly, intervention policy generally aims to alter material incentives ("sticks and carrots") to influence behavior.<br> In response, poorer and weaker actors who wish to block or change this Western implemented "game" use emotions as resources.<br> This book examines the strategic use of emotion in the conflicts and interventions occurring in the Western Balkans over a twenty-year period."
