MADRID asics gel kayano 21 baratas , Sept. 4 (Xinhua) -- Alberto Contador remains as the leader of the Vuelta de Espana (Tour of Spain) cycle race with John Degenkolb winning the 12th stage on Thursday.

The Spaniard and his fellow contenders stayed out of trouble in the finishing kilometers as Degenkolb (Giant Shimano) won a sprint finish in a stage that was only going to affect the race favorites in the event of a fall.

There was a fall on the final corner which ruined the chances of the FDJ team, who swept several other riders to the floor, but by then Degenkolb was clear and the German was once again able to show he is the fastest sprinter in the race, coming over the line ahead of the veteran Tom Boonen. It was the German's third win in this race and his eighth triumph in Spain in his last two appearances.

The 12th stage saw the riders make eight 20 kilometer circuits of a virtually flat route starting and finishing in the city of Logrono and coming after Wednesday's tough mountain stage and the even tougher stages over the coming days it provided a chance for the candidates for the overall title and their teams to relax slightly, while giving one of the last chances for the specialist sprinters to make their mark.

The day was always going to produce a lone breakaway and on this occasion it was the Cannondale rider asics gel kayano 20 baratas mujer , Mattias Krizek, who opened a lead of six minutes, before the Giant Shimano and FDJ teams began to tow the main peloton to close the gap.

Krizek's brave escape was ended with 12 kilometers remaining to set up the sprint on the wide finishing straight, although the fall meant only a reduced number of riders were able to compete and nobody looked like stopping Degenkolb powering his way over the line.

Friday sees a 182 kilometer stage between Belorado and Obregon in another day that should not affect the overall leaderboard ahead of the key mountain stages on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

CANBERRA asics gel kayano 20 hombre baratas , Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- Australian middle-income earners have been hit hardest by stagnating wage growth, a government report has found.

The first study of its kind in Australia, released by Treasurer Scott Morrison on Thursday night, found that the decade-long wage growth slump is a nationwide problem affecting every sector.

Wage increases in the last five years have happened at half the rate they did in the preceding decade when cost of living is factored in, the report found.

Fewer than 10 percent of Australian workers have experienced wage growth of more than 4 percent asics gel kayano 20 baratas , down from 40 percent in 2,000.

"While the recent jobs growth has been great for those 800,000 Australians and their families, for 11.5 million other Australian workers it has been a long time since most of them have had a decent pay rise," Morrison told the Business Council of Australia in a speech on Thursday night.

"As we know asics gel nimbus 17 baratas , wages grew by a subdued 1.9 percent through the year to the June quarter 2017 - the slowest annual growth in at least 20 years."

Workers with a university education were among the hardest hit with their wages experiencing slower growth than those with no post-school qualifications.

"This is not a problem affecting one or two states in isolation, nor is it centred on certain industries or pay grades -- it affects those on awards, collective agreements or individual agreements alike, and ... those in regional areas as much as those in cities," Morrison said.

"The bills jammed under their fridge magnets at home asics gel lyte v negras baratas , in particular the ones you can't avoid like power, rent, rates or the mortgage, are not going anywhere."

The report, which was commissioned by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull earlier in 2017 suggested that wage growth was picking up after a 20-year slump but Morrison warned that the outlook remained bleak for most workers.

It found that wages in capital cities are 20 percent better than in rural areas but the cost of living compensated for that difference.

"The facts also debunk the populist theory that soft wages growth has been contributing to growing income inequality. It is in fact the opposite asics gel lyte v granate baratas ," Morrison said.

"As I have said on numerous occasions, unlike many other advanced economies, our tax and welfare system has protected Australians against rising inequality since the Global Financial Crisis."

SEOUL asics gel lyte v blancas baratas , Jan. 10 (Xinhua) -- Three people have been confirmed dead, with 97 others wounded, in a South Korean fire that broke out in a 10-story apartment building, Yonhap News Agency reported Saturday citing police officers.

The fire erupted at about 9:25 a.m. local time in an apartment building in Uijeongbu, north of Seoul asics gel lyte v españa , leaving three dead and 97 injured.

Among those wounded, five are suffering serious injuries, raising possibilities for additional casualties.

The flare began from a car parked on the ground floor of the building and later moved to another two buildings next to it.

The building is located near a subway station and in narrow streets, causing difficulties for firefighters to approach and put off the fire.

Most of the residents have been evacuated, but some are waiting for rescue on the roof as the fire blocked off the main entrance and prevented residents from evacuating.
