Salazar has been under investigation by the US Anti Doping Agency (Usada) since a BBC Panorama programme in 2015.The leaked interim report states the American has thus far failed to provide “acceptable justification for possessing testosterone” at his Nike Oregon Project (NOP) running camp.Farah breaks European record in his final indoor raceThe report also states Salazar risked the health of his athletes, including Farah, by issuing potentially harmful prescription medicines, including thyroid replacement drugs, to boost performance, despite there being no obvious medical need.But his possession of the banned anabolic steroid testosterone around the NOP athletes he coaches, first revealed by Panorama in June 2015, could also lead to him being banned from the sport. Salazar insists he has a valid prescription for the drug. The trio are among dozens who have been interviewed by Usada as part of its ongoing investigation.Salazar produced a 12,000 word public response to the BBC and ProPublica’s allegations, including a letter from a specialist stating he required the testosterone for his personal use because he had been diagnosed with hypogonadism, which results in low testosterone.He also said the testosterone experiment, which used his own sons as “guinea pigs”, was designed to protect against his athletes being sabotaged by someone rubbing testosterone gel on them after a race so that they would test positive.According to the leaked report, five days after the Panorama programme, Usada wrote to Salazar, asking him to provide “all medical records for you referring to [a] condition for which you have been prescribed testosterone”.The report states Salazar’s lawyer produced seven documents in support of his condition, but concluded “the documents do not establish Mr Salazar has suffered from hypogonadism or that he requires testosterone replacement therapy.”Despite Usada’s request that he do so, Mr Salazar has still produced no laboratory testing records, blood test data, examination notes, chart notes or differential diagnosis substantiating that Mr Salazar suffers from hypogonadism.”The report states “as of March 17, 2016, Mr Salazar’s lawyer had still not provided additional documentation to Usada therefore] has not established acceptable justification for possessing testosterone and his admitted possession of testosterone appears to have been a violation of sport anti doping rules”.The report adds that the concerns listed above are “before even mentioning the Nike Oregon Project document which lists Galen Rupp having received ‘testosterone medication’ when he was a 16 year old and being coached by Salazar, as well as Mary Decker Slaney’s sanction for an elevated testosterone level while she was being coached by Salazar .”Salazar’s athletes include Britain’s Olympic champion Mo Farah and the USA’s London 2012 10,000m silver medallist Galen Rupp (right)Salazar and Rupp, the London 2012 10,000m silver medallist, strongly deny any wrongdoing.

It seems that every time you are out on the golf course, you see a golfer who has made the transition from traditional long irons and drivers to the hybrid drivers and irons. Why the big switch?

A capital project is a project a company undertakes to increase the number of products it can manufacture in the future instead of maintaining its current production capacity, so capital project costs do not reduce the company funds from operations.

Unlike its NFL and NBA video game counterparts, whose popularity is an extension of fans’ pre existing love for those leagues, the FIFA games have become a gateway drug for soccer in America, seeding a familiarity of the game, its nuanced playing styles and its stars across a generation of young, red blooded American sports fans who might once have discarded soccer as a childhood rite of passage.

Beginning in the 1970s, Nike faced widespread criticism for labor practices in overseas factories where its shoes were manufactured. Initially, Nike denied responsibility for these abuses, noting that it did not own the factories.But as with many cases of corporate social responsibility, pressure from activists and institutional investors influenced corporate behavior. During the 1990s, following protests at more than 40 universities holding contracts with Nike, the company shifted tactics, adopting a code of conduct for its suppliers and collaborating with Greenpeace to eliminate hazardous chemicals in the factories that produced its goods.While these kinds of actions often involve a certain degree of change in corporate culture an increased emphasis on employee safety, for example they also are about branding, something that has become increasingly valuable in today’s economy.

A few weeks ago we went to Macy’s (with a coupon, of course) to find her an Easter dress. There were a couple of nice traditional Easter dresses, but there were several dresses that looked like they should come with a complimentary pole and hooker heels!

I’ve actually lost count of the number of cuts and changes that Ford has made since the late 1970s. But this is the most significant plan from Ford in four years, when Chief Executive Bill Ford and his team announced their last major downsizing plan, which involved 20,000 job cuts and several plant closings. Ford President and Chief Operating Officer Jim Padilla, the No.2 man at the company, told me Ford’s big mistake last time was that it failed to recognize that the industry was experiencing not the normal ups and downs of the market but a fundamental shift in the very nature of the market.
