|For the past two weekends Ecco Biom rebajas , football fans in US cities have been watching the drama of the NFL playoffs unfold - except in St. Louis. Not only did the city's Rams fail to qualify for the playoffs, but the team's ownership then decided to move the franchise to Los Angeles, where it was located for almost 50 years.
On paper, this is a great move for the Rams' ownership. Los Angeles is approximately 10 times more populous than St. Louis Ecco Sneakers rebajas , and it has already proven that it can support not only one NFL franchise, but two - as it did when the Raiders also called Los Angeles home from 1982 to 1994.
But the Rams' future success in Southern California is anything but guaranteed. For one thing, Los Angeles is a sprawling city with cripplingly congested freeway traffic and an under-developed public transportation system.
There's more far competition for consumers' entertainment dollars in Los Angeles than in St. Louis. In the fall, football fans can follow either USC or UCLA. Before the NFL seasons ends Ecco Collin rebajas , both the Lakers and Clippers begin playing at the Staples Center - as do the NHL's Los Angeles Kings.
With so many options, Los Angeles sports fans can afford to be picky. Until the Clippers began enjoying moderate success, the team was essentially invisible in the city. USC and UCLA's fan bases are loyal to their teams - so long as those teams are nationally relevant.
The Rams have missed the playoffs for the past 11 seasons, and while they will surely enjoy a grace period from local NFL-hungry fans Ecco Dress rebajas , it's also worth noting that lackluster fan support is essentially what drove the team to St. Louis back in 1995.
It's not the greener grass on the other side of the fence that lured the Rams back to Los Angeles - it's the greener money on the other side of the country. The team better start winning games, though, or it will be looking for a new home sooner rather than later.
NAIROBI, Nov. 6 (Xinhua) -- The East African Parliament on Thursday said that the East African Community (EAC) partner states are lagging behind in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Four and Five on child and maternal health.
The East African Inter-Parliamentary Forum on Population Ecco Soft 8 rebajas , Health and Development Chair Martin Nduwimana told a maternal health forum in Nairobi that the region is still grappling with unacceptably high levels of mortality among women, particularly around the time of delivery and newborns within the first year of birth.
"A 15-year-old East African girl is nine times more likely to die from a maternal cause compared to her peers in the developed world," Nduwimana said during the Seventh Ordinary meeting of the East African Inter-Parliamentary Forum on Population, Health and Development.
He said a significant proportion of deaths of children under the age of five occur within the first month of life Ecco Intrinsic rebajas , "despite the fact that the causes of the childhood deaths are well known and can be prevented by a host of easily available and affordable interventions."
The legislator noted that there is greater political will in the EAC on the implementation of measures that will prevent the deaths even in the remotest villages.
Nduwimana said the Parliament will play a big role in ensuring access to quality reproductive maternal newborn and child health commodities so that the region can achieve universal health care.
East African Community Deputy Secretary General Jesca Eriyo urged the regions government's should allocate more funds towards health, noting the region is also implementing the EAC Regional Open Health Initiative, in order to track maternal and child health indicators.
Eriyo said the region will put more emphasis on health in the Post 2015 development agenda.

ENGLAND’S Jodie Stimpson won the opening gold of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow yesterday on a day when the multi-sport event was hit by the withdrawal of athletics legend Mo Farah.
Stimpson, a silver medalist at the World Triathlon Series in 2013, sprinted clear with 400 meters left of the final 10-kilometer run to win a thrilling race that started with a 1.5km swim in and a 40km cycle around Strathclyde Loch.
Canada’s Kirsten Sweetland claimed silver, with England’s Vicky Holland taking bronze in warm Ecco Slip On rebajas , sunny conditions.
Action got under way also in the pool where top home hope for a gold medal, Michael Jamieson was upstaged by countryman Ross Murdoch in qualifying for the 200 meters breaststroke final.
Murdoch smashed the Commonwealth Games record by over two seconds in a time of 2 minutes, 08.78 seconds with Jamieson and Calum Tait completing an all-Scottish top three in qualifying.
“Watching the crowd go wild and I just wanted that for myself and we did it, so it is something that I’ll remember for the rest of my life zapatillas ecco casual rebajas ,” said the 20-year-old Murdoch.
Scotland’s Hannah Miley also had the home crowd in raptures in the first heat of the event by breaking her own Commonwealth record in the women’s 400 individual medley in a time of 4:38.27.
The immediacy of the action took some of the sting out of Farah’s withdrawal which rocked the Games just as they got under way.
The 5,000 and 10,000 Olympic champion, 31 Ecco Moc 2.0 rebajas , was recently laid low by illness and has decided to pull out in order to work on his fitness ahead of next month’s European Championships in Zurich.
“I have taken the tough decision to withdraw from the Commonwealth Games,” Farah said in a statement released by Team England. “I really wanted to add the Commonwealth titles to my Olympic and World Championships, but the event is coming a few weeks too soon for.
