In her first match at Rod Laver Arena since a Williams sister was guaranteed to win the final almost 12 months ago, Venus Williams lost her opener to Belinda Bencic and ensured the title won't stay in the family. Venus lost last year's final to younger sister Serena, who clinched an Open era-record 23rd major but hasn't played a Grand Slam tournament since then because of her pregnancy and the birth of her first child. The 6-3, 7-5 loss for Venus Williams was her first in five career meetings with Bencic, who lost to Serena Williams in the first round here last year. "I don't think I played a bad match. She just played above and beyond," said seven-time major winner Venus Williams, who was playing her 18th Australian Open. "I just have to give her credit for that. "I didn't play so bad, I wasn't missing every shot. Just didn't work out." Bencic, who was born a couple of months after the last time there was no Williams in the second round at the Australian Open (1997), hit 32 winners, had Newport 100'S Cigarettes high quality 12 unforced errors, converted five of her 11 break-point chances and only dropped serve twice. Williams got 70 percent of her first serves into play and had more unforced errors (26) than winners (22). Bencic credited playing with Roger Federer at the Hopman Cup — where they teamed up to win for Switzerland — with helping her recent improvement as she recovers from injury. She also had a new attitude against Williams, and she had Federer's parents in the crowd for support. "I was thinking a lot about the last matches. For the first matches, I think I had a little bit too much respect, played a little bit careful and safe," Bencic said. "This time I really tried to come out and hit it big. "Also tactically be smart. You really have to be on the limit of your game — you have to come out with everything Newport 100'S Cigarettes you have. I tried to do that today." Stephens was the first American to fall, followed by No. 10-seeded CoCo tttlk3#l7yl1`3 Vandeweghe, a semifinalist here and at the U.S. Open last year.

U.S. Open finalist and No. 11-seeded Kevin Anderson was the highest-ranked man eliminated, losing in five sets to Kyle Edmund — the only British man in the draw after five-time finalist Andy Murray withdrew. The 20-year-old Bencic saved five break points in the eighth game before a rain delay caused an almost half-hour suspension of play as the roof was closed on Rod Laver Arena. She returned on a roll, winning the next six points to hold serve and then clinch the set. Williams' exit followed No. 13-seeded Stephens' 2-6, 7-6 (2), 6-2 loss to No. 34-ranked Zhang Shuai. Stephens had a chance to serve for the match in the 10th game of the second set but dropped her serve. She was outplayed in the tiebreaker and in the third set, extending her losing streak to eight matches since winning the U.S. Open. "Sloane she plays so well, won the U.S. Open — everyone knows — she's a great player," Zhang said. "I know how hard I'm working ... coming to Australia I'm ready for every match, every player. That's why I won today." Vandeweghe was leading in her first set before a rain delay on Hisense Arena, and Timea Babos rallied to win 7-6 (4), 6-2. Of the other U.S. women out in the first round, Sofia Kenin lost to No. 12 Julia Goerges — who extended her winning streak to 15 matches — Bellis lost to No. 30 Kiki Bertens, Alison Riske lost in three sets to Kirsten Flipkens, Taylor Townsend lost in straight sets to No. 19 Magdalena Rybarikova.

Mick Mulvaney can keep Newport Menthol Cigarettes leading the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau — for now. A federal judge ordered on Wednesday that Mulvaney will be allowed to carry on as the bureau's acting director after denying an injunction request from his challenger, Leandra English.

Consumer protection tttlk3#l7yl1`3 bureau leader English isn't done yet Arguing that she is the agency's rightful director, English will likely appeal U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly's ruling — but she might run in to a brick wall. Kelly noted in his Wednesday night ruling that Trump's executive authority could Newport Menthol Cigarettes good taste "override" the order of succession laid out in the Dodd-Frank Act, the Obama-era federal law that founded the CFPB. "Under English's reading, the CFPB's Director has unchecked authority to decide who will inherit the potent regulatory Newport Menthol Cigarettes wholesaler and enforcement powers of that office, as well as the privilege of insulation from direct presidential control," Kelly wrote. "Such authority appears to lack any precedent among other independent agencies." Leandra English, who has been with the CFPB since its inception. will likely appeal U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly's ruling. Leandra English, who has been with the CFPB since its inception. will likely appeal U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly's ruling. Kelly also refuted English's claim that Trump couldn't appoint someone who was already heading another executive branch, stressing that Mulvaney will only head the CFPB until Trump has appointed someone else. Mick Mulvaney named interim financial protection bureau head Kelly further argued that an injunction would only cause more confusion. "Granting English an injunction would not bring about more clarity; it would only serve to muddy the waters," the judge wrote. English's attorney, Deepak Gupta, promptly blasted Kelly's ruling and expressed concern over Mulvaney's intentions to drastically curtail the bureau's authority, noting his history of siding with big banks over consumers. "We are disappointed in today's decision," Gupta said in a statement. "Mr. Mulvaney's appointment undermines the Bureau's independence and threatens its mission to protect American consumers."

President Trump’s closest aides believe the commander-in-chief is “like a child” and an “idiot,” the author of an explosive new White House tell-all said Friday as he defended his work. Writer Michael Wolff shrugged off searing criticisms from Trump and said he wasn’t worried about a cease-and-desist letter sent by the President’s lawyers in an attempt to stop “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” from hitting shelves. “One of the things we have to count on is that Donald Trump will attack. He will send lawyer’s letters. This is a 35-year history of how he approaches everything,” Wolff told NBC’s “Today” show. He added that the President’s reaction and subsequent press coverage have only fueled interest in the tome. Hannity denies report that he gave Trump interview questions “Where do I send the box of chocolates,” he said. Wolff’s book paints a chaotic and salacious tableau of Trump’s first nine months in office. It was made available in bookstores on Friday, after its publication was Newport Cartons Sold In The Usa tttlk3#l7yl1`3 moved up due to high demand and has already hit No. 1 on Amazon. Michael Wolff speaks to the "Today" show on Friday morning. Michael Wolff speaks to the "Today" show on Friday morning. (NBC) The author told “Today” he spoke with Trump for several hours while working on the book, and that he interviewed people who met with Trump on a “daily and sometimes minute-by-minute basis.” President Trump claims he doesn't talk to Steve Bannon Many of those closest to Trump questioned his intelligence and Wholesale Newport Cartons Sold In The Usa whether he is mentally fit for office. Some referred to Trump as a “moron” and an “idiot,” according to Wolff. “The one description that everyone gave: they all say he is like a child,” Wolff said. “The need for immediate gratification. It's all about him. Wolff said he was stunned when Trump hit him and publisher Henry Holt and Co. with a cease-and-desist letter on Thursday. “This is extraordinary that a President of the United States would try to stop the publication of a book,” he added. Trump tears into ‘Sloppy Steve’ Bannon, new explosive book He then laughed off Trump’s assertion that “Fire and Fury” was “full of lies,” saying he has recordings and notes of his interviews. “My credibility is being questioned by a man who has less credibility of any man who has walked on Earth to this point,” Wolff said. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders questioned Wolff’s account of West Wing access. “Look, we said they spoke once by the phone for a few minutes, but it wasn't about the book.

Sri Lanka's leading wildlife experts and environmentalists on Thursday welcomed China's decision to ban ivory sales, saying all countries should follow China's example in order to save tuskers globally. Leading Environmentalist and a member of the Wildlife and Nature Protection Society of Sri Lanka, Vidya Abhayagunawardena told Xinhua that China's decision would safeguard elephants across the world. "We invite other countries to follow China's example. Especially the East Asian countries as they believe that ivory brings prosperity," Abhayagunawardena said. "This decision will affect Sri Lanka as our country is used as 2018 Cheapest Cigarette Cartons a hub by international wildlife traders. A ban in China will strongly be an advantage for us all," Abhayagunawardena added. In January last year, Sri Lanka became the first country in South Asia to publicly destroy 356 blood ivories worth millions of U.S. dollars, which was seized in a ship at the Colombo Port in 2012. Abhayagunawardena, who was in the forefront of organizing the event to burn the blood ivory, said the consignment had been detected by the Customs and was en-route to Dubai. He said through the gesture, Sri Lanka has sent a strong message that it would not tolerate the killing of elephants. Presently out of the total elephant population in Sri Lanka, only 5 percent are tuskers and these tuskers were under continuous threat from poachers and smugglers. "December was an alarming month as there were five tuskers which tttlk3#l7yl1`3 were reportedly killed. There may have been some unreported cases too," Abhayagunawardena said. A 23-year-old animal lover, Savindri Perera told Xinhua that China's decision to ban the sale of ivory was welcomed not only in the island country but also across the world. She said China was one of the most powerful countries in USA Cheapest Cigarette Cartons the world and this sent a strong message to other countries that the killing of elephants will not be tolerated.

Once again it is time for reflections and resolutions. For China, which sailed through a difficult year safe and sound, and with government promises of a more efficient and open economy, the country is ready tttlk3#l7yl1`3 to start a new journey. Despite some turbulence along the way, China's economy ended 2017 stronger than expected: headline growth is sure to meet targets, financial risks are being contained, the property market is cooling down, and key reforms are making steady progress. So far, the world's second-largest economy has proved to be a key engine for global growth. Will its role continue to improve, and how will China navigate troubled waters? The following are some key areas to watch. DEEPER SUPPLY-SIDE STRUCTURAL REFORMS China's wide-ranging structural reforms, designed to improve the supply side of the economy, have produced desired outcomes in 2017 and are expected to gear up in 2018. In the battle against overcapacity, a major task for the reforms, China has accomplished its plans to slash steel production capacity by around 50 million tonnes and coal by at least 150 million tonnes last year. Progress has also been reported on the other four fronts, including deleveraging, destocking, lowering costs and enhancing weak links. The annual Central Economic Work Conference last month pledged that China will press ahead with supply-side structural reform in 2018 with more efforts to improve economic quality. CONTINUED REGULATORY STORM In what some dubbed the "toughest year" for China's financial industry, authorities have taken real steps to curb widespread malfeasance in the rapidly expanding financial market. Banks, insurance and securities companies have received heavy fines for flouting market rules, and internet finance companies once prospering on easy and fat profits are having a difficult time surviving with the enhanced rules. The hardline stance is set to continue as senior leaders agreed to maintain the resolute crackdown on irregular and illegal activities in the financial sector to forestall risks. Although a statement released after the key economic meeting did not mention deleveraging, financial risk control is still a priority given that defusing major risks is one of the three tough battles that the country has vowed to fight. ESCALATING WAR ON POLLUTION There is no better gauge than the clear and blue skies in Beijing this winter to demonstrate the effects of China's anti-pollution drive. Once a rarity, blue winter skies are no longer 2018 Marlboro Gold Free Carton a luxury in Beijing due to a government campaign for increased use of clean fuel for heating and tough punishments against polluting enterprises. Pollution control has also been listed as one of China's "three tough battles" for the next three years, targeting a significant reduction in the emissions of major pollutants and an improvement in the overall ecological environment. To win the battle, efforts should be focused on adjusting the structure of industries, strengthening energy conservation and making the skies blue again, according to the Central Economic Work Conference. REAL ESTATE REGULATION TO MAINTAIN In 2017, the property market, once deemed a major risk for the broader economy, cooled down amid tough curbs such as Marlboro Gold Free Carton hot purchase restrictions and increased downpayment requirements as the government sought to rein in speculation. With the market holding steady, Chinese authorities aim for a "long-term mechanism" for real estate regulation and a housing system that ensures supply through multiple sources and encourages both housing purchases and rentals. In large and medium-sized cities, the government will step up the development of housing rental market, especially long-term leases. Meanwhile, reducing unsold housing will still be a priority for the third- and fourth-tier cities and counties. A report from the National Academy of Economic Strategy predicted that the country's property market should remain stable in 2018 if there is no major policy shock. SOE REFORM QUICKENS Reforms of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) will also go into deeper waters in 2018 as the Chinese government expects them to play a bigger role in leading excess capacity cuts, keeping the debt ratio under control and driving high-quality economic development. In 2017, up to 68.9 percent of the central SOEs were involved in mixed-ownership reforms, and authorities are reviewing plans for more to join the drive. At the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the Chinese leadership pledged to further reforms to make SOEs "stronger, better and bigger," and turn them into "world-class, globally competitive firms." The government will press ahead with stronger restructuring and deleveraging Marlboro Gold Free Carton efforts, as well as furthering mixed-ownership experiments at more SOEs, authorities said. DOORS OPENING WIDER The year 2018 will mark the 40th anniversary of China's reform and opening up policy, and Chinese leaders have promised that its door to the world will only open wider. China will increase imports and cut import tariffs on some products to promote balanced trade, according to the Central Economic Work Conference. To give foreign firms greater opportunities in China's booming market, a negative list approach to market entry, which states sectors and businesses that are off limits to foreign investment, will be expanded nationwide in 2018. The country will also grant more power to pilot free trade zones and explore the opening of free trade ports, according to the 19th CPC National Congress.
