Even the least heralded of them get plenty of recognition. No 1960s Packers, 1970s Steelers, 1980s 49ers, 1990s Cowboys or 2000s Patriots. Sorry, Jerry Kramer! Being part of an era-defining dynasty brings with it a base-level acclaim that the players on this list cannot match. After that, players are ranked based how underappreciated they are, not how great they are. You will find some familiar Hall of Fame snubs on this list (like Jim Marshall, pictured above), but also plenty of players who were even snubbed from the Hall of Fame snubs, plus some current players who aren't getting their due. And you're never going to guess who's No. 1. Begin Slideshow

KUALA LUMPUR: Alam Maritim Resources Bhd foresees another year of losses after a net loss of RM142.87 million in 2016, given the lacklustre oil market. “I dont think it (the turnaround) will happen this year. I do not think it will happen that fast,” group managing director Datuk Azmi Ahmad said when asked about its financial performance outlook. Alluding to the current low crude oil prices, Azmi said it is not possible for Alam Maritim to replicate its performance in FY12 to FY13 when its net profit increased from RM55.71 million to RM74.50 million. “Even when we talk to Petronas and the rest, we are looking at probably two to three years for the recovery but again we cannot expect the oil price to go up to US$120 to US$130 per barrel. It will probably stay between US$60 and US$70 per barrel,” Azmi said at a media briefing after the group’s AGM here on Friday.

This year we’re building the momentum to introduce online enrollment,” said Husaini. PRS is voluntary, and as with everything that it voluntary, it takes time to convince people on the importance of saving for retirement from young. “We dont want people to think of PRS as a tax-saving tool (taxable residents are entitled to tax relief of RM3,000 per year). We want them to save more for retirement and see the tax relief as icing on the cake. They still need to have the cake, which is to save more for retirement. “Getting people to be aware (of PRS) is one thing, getting them to set aside additional savings is also challenging in the current economic situation. “Most of them recognise that they need to set aside money but they have to make a hard choice to look at what they can cut in their lifestyle to save more for retirement,” Husaini said.

To internationalise the incubation programme TPM had signed a memorandum of understanding with the National Chiao Tung University of Taiwan for a co-incubation programme to enable local and Taiwanese incubatees to cross explore both markets while riding on expertise from both countries. With that and in view of the trying current economic times, senior vice-president of the park’s management and services Shahazman Abu Samah, said TPM is putting in place some initiatives to “reduce some risks by 20-30%” that start-up’s and small and medium enterprises (SME) in the science, technology and innovation sectors might face, echoing the risk for this sector is much higher in terms of machinery investments, developing labs and infrastructure as well as securing fundings goes. “We would like to bring in more start-up’s and SME’s into TPM because we know that economically we are facing a little bit of a challenge.

The same story happened in other major cities across the country: in Isfahan, the wealthy industrial and tourist hub of central Iran (in the recent decade a bastion of the Principlists); in Shiraz, southern Iran, and even in Mashhad, the current headquarters of Ebrahim Raisi, Rouhani’s rival in the presidential election, from where he, as custodian of the holy shrine of the eighth Shia imam, Imam Reza, supervises the multibillion dollar assets of Astan Quds Razavi. The Reformists have never been this powerful since the early years of Eslahat , ‘Reform’, in the late 1990s. Mohammad Khatami’s surprise victory in 1997 presidential election ushered in an age of political and social freedom not experienced since the early months of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. On the wave of Khatami’s immense popularity, Reformists dominated the first city council (all seats in Tehran) and next, the Sixth Parliament.

Six individuals have more wealth than half of the world's population. The West has alienated and impoverished the rest. These conditions haven't been erected without a fight. Oppressed nations have historically united against imperialist rule. By the US invasion of Vietnam, nearly a third of the planet possessed socialist governments and even more were fighting for the same. By 1978, the West had intensified its assault on global progress, which eventually led to the demise of the Soviet Union and the decline of the socialist bloc in 1991. Unfettered capitalism followed, and with it the current predicaments of mass poverty and instability that afflict much of the global south. The landscape of the 21st century is markedly different than the 20th, but the relationship between the West and the rest still dictates human and global development. This relationship is characterized by a struggle between the West's reign of terror and an opposing global shift toward independent political and economic development.

new about the current crisis? The newest thing here is that they claim to have pledged allegiance to Isis or Isil. They want to be recognised by Isil. I think that is why they are provoking the Government. That is why they are launching this high-profile attack on the Muslim seat here

Current theories of planet formation hold that rocky planets such as the Earth, Mars, and Venus formed early in the existence of our solar system as smaller objects collided with each other. These collisions were so violent that the resulting bodies melted and partially vaporized, eventually cooling and solidifying to the (nearly) spherical planets we know today. We looked at the statistics of giant impacts, and we found that they can form a completely new structure. Lock and Stewart are particularly interested in collisions between spinning objects. A rotating object has angular momentum, which must be conserved in a collision. Think of a skater spinning on ice: If she extends her arms, she slows her rate of spin, and to spin faster she holds her arms close. Her angular momentum is the same. Now consider two ice skaters turning on ice: if they catch hold of each other, the angular momentum of each adds together, so their total angular momentum must be the same.
