    导出博客文章LAS VEGAS -- Nevada lawmakers convene Monday to consider raising taxes in the Las Vegas area to help fund a $1. Nike Air Max TN Plus Ultra Hombre Verde .9 billion football stadium, a $1.4 billion convention center expansion and more police officers to protect the additional tourists. Here are things to know about the deal.STADIUM COULD MAKE VEGAS A SPORTS TOWNLas Vegas has long been a pariah for professional sports leagues because of Nevadas legal sports betting. But the stigma appears to be fading after the National Hockey League announced this summer that it plans to place an expansion team there starting in the 2017-2018 season. NFL owners, who have previously erred on the conservative side of the gambling question, would have to vote by a three-fourths majority to allow the Raiders to move from Oakland to Las Vegas. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has said he wants to try to keep the team in the Bay Area, while the teams owner, Mark Davis, said hes serious about moving the team to Las Vegas in time for the 2020 season. The stadium would also house UNLV football. The largely commuter school wants to elevate its reputation and play in a venue closer than its current home of Sam Boyd Stadium, which is seven miles from campus.IT WOULD RAISE TOURISTS HOTEL BILLSThe proposed deal would increase the hotel tax on the Las Vegas Strip by 0.88 percentage points for the stadium, and 0.5 percentage points for the convention center. Tourists are already paying a 12 percent hotel room tax, which funds tourism improvement projects, schools and other services. They would pay about $1.50 more per night on the average nightly Strip hotel bill if both proposals pass. Proponents are selling the project to lawmakers on the basis that the tax increase would hit tourists, not locals, and that the hotel tax has always been aimed at increasing tourism -- southern Nevadas most important industry. Two-thirds of each Republican-controlled house must approve any tax increase.DEAL FOR A BILLIONAIREBehind the deal is Las Vegas Sands casino owner and Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, whos worth about $32 billion and ranks as the 14th richest person in the U.S. on Forbes latest rankings. Opponents say he, of all people, can afford to fully finance the stadium on his own. Adelson is committing $650 million to the project, while asking for $750 million from hotel tax revenue to cover bonds and $500 million from the Raiders and the NFL. Proponents argue the two projects could bring 14,000 permanent jobs and make a $620 million annual economic impact, while opponents fear the projections are too optimistic and worry the deals structure could leave taxpayers holding the bag in case of another recession. They also say the publics share -- 39 percent of the estimated total cost -- is higher than in other projects, while stadium supporters say thats on par with the breakdown at recently built Dallas and Minneapolis stadiums.UNION VS. UNIONThe hospitality workers of Las Vegas powerful Culinary Union are opposed to the stadium deal, releasing a cartoon-style video ad with the rhyme they must think that we are dumb / to raise taxes for their stadium. They insist theyre opposed to the deal because they think any tax hike revenues should go to Nevadas bottom-ranking public schools instead of stadiums, and not because Adelson has resisted unionization efforts at his casinos. But theyre going against other labor supporters, including the Laborers Union, which is eager for the thousands of construction jobs the projects are expected to create. The group held tailgate parties outside meetings focused on vetting the deal.YOM KIPPUR RECESSNevadas 63 lawmakers are supposed to meet in a special session starting Monday morning. Theres no set end date; special sessions in 2014 and 2015 lasted two and four days, respectively. Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval said he consulted with a rabbi about the potential that the meetings will conflict with Yom Kippur, the most important holiday on the Jewish calendar, and plans a break in the action from sundown Tuesday to sundown Wednesday for the observance. Lawmakers are prohibited from fundraising from the day after the governor issues a formal proclamation calling the session -- likely Sunday -- until 15 days after it adjourns. Nike Air Max TN Plus Ultra Rojo Oscuro/Negro . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. Nike Air Max TN Plus Ultra Hombre Blanco Gris Negro . -- Timbers coach Caleb Porter didnt stray from his business-like approach to the season even after Portland downed the two-time defending league champion Los Angeles Galaxy to gain crucial playoff position. . Fred Couples, captain of the U.S. side, put it all into perspective. "We know whos in charge," he said.Christian Eriksen is desperate to have the last laugh in his friendly feud with Kasper Schmeichel as Tottenhams title rivalry with Leicester gets serious. Spurs trail Claudio Ranieris side by eight points in the Premier League title race heading into their Sky Live Monday Night Football game at Stoke. Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld thinks a second place finish in the Premier League would still be a great achievement The gap would have been less had a stoppage-time penalty from substitute Leonardo Ulloa not rescued a point for the Foxes as they drew 2-2 with West Ham on Sunday. Eriksen has been trying to stoke the fire over the last few weeks by sending texts to his Denmark team-mate Schmeichel.Leicester still have games against Swansea, Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea to come, and Eriksen admits he recently took the chance to tease Schmeichel again when he messaged him recently.I hope its me, Eriksen said when asked who will send the last laugh message.I just texted him the other day. I said good luck winning...or not and he said the same back.So of course we are still in contact and were in the national team together and there are a lot of jokes, there is a good relationship between us.We are colleagues and friends but its not like were texting each other every week either. Its probably funnier to text each other now because of where we are in the league but its just normal banter.Eriksen also questioned Schmeichels assertion that Leicester are just enjoying being title contenders.I think they are, of course they are, Eriksen added when asked if Leicester are thinking about being crowned champions.When you are that close and you are coming from the position that they are in, of course they will be looking at the title. That is normal.Talking to the press you say things a little differently.Tottenham still have work to do if they are to come from behind and overhaul Leicester to secure top spot, although Eriksen is one of three players in the team, along with Toby Alderweiireld and Jan Vertonghen, who have experience of doing just that.

Poch: No time to reflect Mauricio Pochettino admits he has not had time to take stock of Spurs season The trio helped Ajax overcome a 12-point deficit on FC Twente in 2011, pipping their rivals to the post on the final day of the season.I think we were second until the last day of the season when we played Twente, who were first and one point ahead, added Eriksen.If you won the game you were champions. For us, the whole season we were trailing and I think at some points we were 12 points behind. But we came closer and closer, and then we got it.I was really young back then but for me it was a really good experience and you could see what it meant for the club. Its a little bit the same here.Eriksen may find the gap too great to close this time around but is confident Tottenhams title challenge is not a one-off. Dominic Fifield says the decision to switch Kevin Friend from refereeing the Tottenham game sets a dangerous precedent The 24-year-old is one of a handful of players, including Vertonghen, to have held early talks over a new contract this summer and if Spurs can keep their talented squad together, the future looks bright.We have the team to play for the title and, if all the players stay, we can do better next season, said Eriksen.We have given a good picture to the world that we are a really strong team and not someone that you just push over.Watch Stoke v Tottenham on Monday Night Football.
