WANT to dodge today's cup final? Then why not get along to Ravenscraig Arena this afternoon for a spot of dodgeball - even if you don't feel moved to dig out the lycra and sweatbands for the occasion. The sum total of most people's knowledge about this minority sport might be derived from mixed gender PE lessons at school and a wacky Hollywood film starting Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller called 'Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story', but in fact the World Dodgeball Association represents 61 national federations, four continental federations and 67.5m people worldwide. The sport is recognised by the International Olympic Committee and on a fast track to be part of the Olympic schedule by 2028, with designs also on a place at the Commonwealth Games. They are in Scotland to launch the 2017 European Dodgeball Championships, which will take place at the same venue in Lanarkshire on August 18-20.

J.) publicly condemned the potential elimination of the deduction. “I hope we can preserve this,” Lance said in an interview. “I want a full analysis of how this would affect residents in New Jersey.” Some Washington lobbyists who work for state and local officials say they are guarding against double taxation of wage income. They call it disingenuous for Trump to turn a blind eye to that principle while fighting to end double taxes on investment income. Supporters are mobilizing more than just letter-writing campaigns to defend the deduction. The National Association of Counties is leading efforts to put together a coalition that includes other government groups like the U.S. Conference of Mayors, the National Conference of State Legislatures and some private-sector interests, including the real estate sector. They plan to host an event on Capitol Hill next month to lobby members of Congress and their aides about the deduction, which has existed since the federal income tax was codified in 1913.

" After speaking with more than 80 current and former players about the hot-button topic, Goodell announced earlier in the week the NFL would allow more celebrations, including using the football as a prop and group collaborations. "We saw a lot of interest in liberalizing and allowing the players a little more freedom to be able to express their joy, their individuality and frankly celebrate the game," he said. "So that's what we think we've accomplished here. There will be an ongoing dialogue with a lot of parties to make sure that we implement it." The relationship between Goodell and players had soured in recent years, mostly because of how the commissioner handled cases related to player discipline. In 2015, Cincinnati Bengals offensive tackle Eric Winston, who serves as president of the National Football League Players Association, told Mark Maske of the Washington Post the NFLPA would be hesitant to sign any new collective bargaining agreement without a reduction in power in that area.
