" Richardson was the 2013 Defensive Rookie of the Year and a 2014 Pro Bowler, but he's fallen out of favor in New York after his level of play declined and two suspensions in that time cost him five games. Meanwhile, Leonard Williams has established himself as one of the game's top young interior lineman, and the Jets made a huge financial commitment to Muhammad Wilkerson last year, signing him to a five-year, $86 million contract. The Jets, however, don't appear to be in a hurry to trade Richardson if that means doing so for cents on the dollar. And general manager Mike Maccagnan was cagey when he addressed the defensive tackle's status. "Sheldon's under contract," he said Saturday, per Mehta. "He's part of our organization going forward. And we'll see how things develop over time. But again, he's under contract. Going forward, that's where we are with Sheldon. ... There's a whole offseason ahead of us here. We'll see how it unfolds going forward."

He was the first casualty in the spring mountaineering season in Nepal that began in March and will end in May. Hundreds of foreign climbers are on the mountains to attempt scale Himalayan peaks in May when there are a few windows of favorable weather. The 40-year-old Steck was one of the most-renowned mountaineers of his generation. He was best known for his speed-climbing, including setting several records for ascending the north face of the Eiger, a classic mountaineering peak in the Bernese Alps that he climbed in two hours and 47 minutes without using a rope. In 2013 he achieved the first solo climb of the Annapurna south face in Nepal after almost losing his life in a fall there in 2007. For that he received the Piolet d'Or considered the Oscar of mountaineering the following year. In 2015, Steck decided to climb all 82 peaks in the Alps higher than 4,000 meters (13,100 feet) traveling between mountains by foot, bike and paraglider only.

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has criticized President Hassan Rouhani for saying his detente policy with the West had caused the threat of war to fade as tensions intensify in Tehran before May election. Rouhani, a pragmatist whose election in 2013 led to a diplomatic thaw between Iran and the West, championed in 2015 a landmark deal in which Tehran agreed to curb its nuclear activities in return for lifting of international sanctions. A standoff between Rouhani, who is seeking a second term, and Khamenei's allies, who opposed the nuclear deal, has intensified in recent months ahead of the May 19 vote. "Some say since we took office the shadow of war has been faded away. This is not correct," Khamenei was quoted as saying by the state media on Sunday. "It's been people's presence in the political scene that has removed the shadow of war from the country," he added.

He was promoted to general manager in May 2013 after Buddy Nix stepped down. Things started out well for Whaley , as the Bills posted a 9-7 record in 2014, their first winning season since 2004. Doug Marrone , who coached the Bills in 2013 and '14, opted out of his contract after that season when Ralph Wilson sold the team to Terry and Kim Pegula . Whaley was given a multiyear contract extension in January 2016, despite the Bills' 8-8 record the previous year. With the Bills' new ownership duo still trying to put their personal stamp on the franchise, Whaley finds himself as the odd man out. Still, the timing of his dismissal was unusual.

"It is very sad news, he is a very experienced climber," he said of Steck's death. "Things can be so unpredictable in the mountains and it can be challenging even for the most seasoned climbers." Stalked by controversy Steck made global headlines in 2013 when he and two other Western climbers traded blows with a group of furious Nepali guides over a climbing dispute on Mount Everest. The brawl shocked the mountaineering community, causing a damaging rift between Western climbers and the often lowly-paid Nepali guides who are essential for commercial expeditions to the crowded summit. An angry Steck swore never to return to Everest, telling a Swiss website that his "trust (was) gone". But he was back in the Himalayas only months later, this time to scale Mount Annapurna, the world's tenth highest peak, via its steep Southface wall. After 28 hours of climbing – all without bottled oxygen – and a dangerous brush with an avalanche, Steck became the first mountaineer to complete a solo ascent of the 8,091m peak.

In 2013 he achieved the first solo climb of the Annapurna south face in Nepal after almost losing his life in a fall there in 2007.

In 2015, Steck decided to climb all 82 peaks in the Alps higher than 4,000 meters (13,100 feet) traveling between mountains by foot, bike and paraglider only. He completed the feat in 62 days, helping cement his reputation as the “Swiss Machine.” Steck said in an interview last month with Swiss daily Tages-Anzeiger that he considers himself an outsider in the mountaineering scene because athletic achievement is more important to him than adventure. Asked about his upcoming Everest-Lhotse expedition, involving a quick climb from one peak to the other including an overnight in the “death zone,” Steck said: “When I’m on Everest I can stop at any point.

1100 MPSs remain on UK roads The Mazda 3 MPS is a quick, comfortable and reliable hot hatch with more power than a VW Golf R32, yet few people even know it exists Mention the Mazda 3 of 2003-2013 and most people will struggle to recall it. Regale them with tales of the 256bhp MPS variant launched in 2006, and they’ll write you off as ‘a person to avoid’. The fact is, the Mazda Performance Series is a hot hatch known only to car junkies who nod approvingly at a power output that exceeded the 247bhp of the Mk5 Volkswagen Golf R32 and was only 5bhp shy of the Audi S3 . And therein lies the reason the 3 MPS is so invisible. Whereas the R32 and S3 were both four-wheel drive, the Mazda was two-wheel drive, and those driven wheels were the fronts. True, there’s a mechanical limited-slip diff and a steering-anglesensitive throttle damping system that aims to rein in power when you turn the wheel but, even so, torque steer remains a problem that leaves the car feeling unresolved.

Bayern president Uli Hoeness has said just one title "is a bit too little" for a club that craves success, but chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge praised the record-extending achievement of a fifth straight title. "This is something exceptional and unbelievable," said Rummenigge. "I believe we completely deserve to be champions." Bayern captain Philipp Lahm will retire at the end of the season and will lift the Bundesliga trophy for the eighth time after the final league match on May 20. "We really deserved that as a team," said Lahm. "It wasn't a foregone conclusion we would win the title with three games left to play. "We scored our goals at the right time and we showed how much joy we take from playing, that makes it hard for every opponent." The 33-year-old will hang up his boots having also led Germany to the 2014 World Cup. He has claimed every major honour with Bayernnotably winning the 2013 Champions League as well as the German Cup six times.

The GST, the new bankruptcy law, the effort to cut bureaucratic costs stand out. He says this is showing up in India’s market and growth indicators. "The despondency is because of politics. A vast majority of educated Indians are worried about the rise of political and social extremism," he says. Numbers’ Game? Could this dichotomy be just a number fiddle? In early 2015, the NDA government brought in two important changes in the way India calculated its GDP. It changed the base year from 2004-05 to 2011-12. And it began calculating GDP based on gross value added at market price rather than factor cost. "This is in line with the global practice," says Sunil Sinha, director (public finance), India Ratings & Research. This new method meant that 2013-14 GDP growth got revised upwards to 6.9% from 4.7% as estimated earlier. "Many, including us, have raised concerns about the new GDP series," says Jahangir Aziz, chief Asia economist, JPMorgan Chase.
