Panel chairman Jeffrey Webb said the top soccer officials, not the officials of the FIFA task force against discrimination, will deal with the issue ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The issue is overshadowing preparations for the 2014 Sochi Olympics. FIFA joined the IOC in seeking clarification from Russia ahead of the Sochi Olympics and the World Cup about a new law banning promotion of “nontraditional” lifestyles to minors. “We have been advised that the FIFA administration, the president and secretary general, are in discussions with the Russian authorities,” Webb said after the panel’s six-hour session on Thursday. Webb said FIFA “does not tolerate or accept any form of discrimination.” However, his panel doesn’t plan to send guidelines to Russia and 2022 World Cup host Qatar, where homosexual acts are illegal. “Whatever we do as a task force has to have the universality of the 209 (nation) membership of FIFA,” said Webb, a vice president who leads the regional soccer body for North and Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF). “If there is an infringement in regard to the FIFA statutes, that is for the FIFA disciplinary bodies and FIFA executive committee to address,” he said. One of Webb’s FIFA board colleagues is Russia’s sports minister, Vitaly Mutko. The meeting Thursday was a second for the task force, which pushed through in May recommendations for tougher sanctions for racist actions in soccer. Webb said priorities include better identification of high-risk World Cup matches and helping FIFA member countries recruit and train anti-discrimination specialists. Promoting a global campaign using players as ambassadors is also planned at the task force’s next scheduled meeting in December. “FIFA, of course, cannot address the issues for society as a whole,” Webb said.
From Russia With PR: How Vladimir Putin’s Firm Places Op-Eds in American Publications
The piece, as well as another he wrote for a website run by Ketchum, reflect my own ideas and arguments, he said in an email. A January 2012 CNBC piece by Laura Brank, the head of the Russia practice for the international law firm Dechert . Brank praised the Russian government for working to overcome the perception of an inhospitable investment climate through the implementation and enforcement of laws designed to better protect business and reduce corruption. Brank did not respond to requests for comment. While Ketchum maintains it always identifies its client when dealing with the media, the 2010 email sent by Ketchum to Huffington Post pitching the Pabst column did not mention that Russia was the firms client. (See the full email .) Below is a piece from Adrian Pabst, a leading Russia scholar in Europe, wrote then-Ketchum Vice President Matt Stearns, who is now at UnitedHealth Group. Ketchum says that Stearns had in previous correspondence identified Russia as his client to the Huffington Post editor, including to set up a blog on the editors site for a member of the Russian government. The company did not provide that correspondence. Huffington Post spokesman Rhoades Alderson said the site has a policy requiring bloggers to disclose any financial conflicts of interest related to the issue they are writing about, but Pabst did not violate the policy. The job of our blog editors is to make sure all of our posts add value for our readers, Alderson said in a statement. Part of that is making judgment calls about the transparency of each bloggers motive, even in cases when there is no technical violation of the disclosure policy. A submission by a PR firm raises flags but is not automatically disqualified if the blog adds value and is in keeping with our guidelines. Placement of op-eds is a standard part of the influence game, but its rare for readers ever to find out who is behind the curtain. In 2011, top public-relations firm Burson-Marsteller came under criticism after it asked a blogger to author an op-ed criticizing Googles privacy standards. Burson was working on a contract for Facebook at the time. Public-relations firms have also been known to write op-eds and have them placed under the byline of a third party, and even to pay experts to write favorable op-eds.
That compares with an increase of 15 basis points indicated March 27. Bank Rossii has spurned calls from senior government officials to ease policy, holding its main lending rates for a 12th month today. Commercial banks took 61 percent, or 306.8 billion rubles, at its debut auction in July for one-year funds using non-marketable assets as collateral. Providing three-month financing at the auction announced today will free up market collateral for operations on the money market for banks and thereby improve the effectiveness of our transmission mechanism, Nabiullina said. The parameters of the new auction were made after a review of the last offering, she said. Key Decision The new three-month refinancing tool, to be offered at the minimum rate of 5.75 percent, is the key policy decision today, Dmitry Polevoy, chief economist for Russia and CIS at ING Groep in Moscow, said in e-mailed comments, adding that the MosPrime rate will continue drifting lower as a result. The new three-month auction will likely be the most-demanded one, making 12-month auctions redundant under similar costs. The central bank, which estimates inflation will slow to 5 percent to 6 percent by year-end, said consumer-price growth decelerated to 6.3 percent from a year earlier as of Sept. 9. Threats to economic growth in the medium term are related to weak investment and the sluggish recovery of external demand, according to the statement. Considering current domestic and external trends, the level of market interest rates is seen as appropriate in the nearest future to achieve a balance between inflation risks and risks of low economic growth, the bank said. Single Rate The new key rate now stands at 5.5 percent after the one-week auction deposit rate was raised to that level from 5 percent, with the one-week auction-based repurchase rate kept at 5.5 percent. The central bank also reduced the cost of overnight facilities secured by non-marketable assets to 6.5 percent from 6.75 percent, while the rate on overnight loans was cut to 6.5 percent from 8.25 percent.
9/09/2013 11:39 AM ET | Filed under: Vanessa Hudgens Selena Gomez Sounds like a good friend to have in Hollywood! We’re not surprised that with skillz that those Vanessa Hudgens can count starlets like Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale as some of her besties. Even though Vanessa might be a young thing, it sounds like she’s got the whole followed by photogs thing all figured out. But she isn’t keeping that knowledge to herself because she’s passing it on to one of her newest besties, Selenita! During a recent interview with Marie Claire about Vanessa, Selena revealed how zen and yet tough her BFF is as she said: “She was very protective. I was distracted [by photographers during the filming of Spring Breakers], and she took me aside and talked to me about who I am and what I represent. I felt safer after that.” But that paparazzi voo doo on others isn’t all Vanessa can do! She’s also used her mind tricks on herself. And it seems she’s so good with her mental game that she no longer cares about the paparazzi at all – something she’s clearly trying to pass on to Selena. Vanessa revealed: “A sense of knowing I’m a part of something bigger than myself has allowed me to enjoy life more. And not worry about the little things. Like paparazzi.” With her boho chic style, we totes believe Vanessa is probably on her way to being one with the world.
Selena Gomez Jealous and Angry in Light of Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber’s Flirtacious Encounters?
Night 1,’ and ‘G’nite London.’ The star has attracted much attention, dressed in skimpy leather hotpants and sheer T-shirts, the star is slowly losing her young, Disney identity.

Is this Justin Bieber’s bong? Man holds the marijuana pipe out of teenage millionaire’s pimped out van By the looks of Selena’s outfits and raunchy dance moves, the star was out to impress in her latest tour, which also ties in with promoting her new album, Stars Dance, which was released on July 19. Selena began by wowing fans at the venue on the first night when she opened her set in a pair of tight leather hotpants to perform tracks from current album The 21-year-old singer and actress teamed her skimpy bottoms with breezy white top and sheer tights, while the chunky gold chains around her neck gave the overall look a distinctly urban flourish. Raunchy: Selena Gomez performs at the Hammersmith Apollo on Saturday night Selena completed the look with a pair of mid-length black boots as she worked her way through the opening songs of a lively set that included hit single Come & Get It, Slow Down and Love Will Remember. Is this Justin Bieber’s bong? Man holds the marijuana pipe out of teenage millionaire’s pimped out van The young star recently jetted into the UK from Paris as she continues her Stars Dance world tour, making her announcement public with tweet to her 17,000,000 Twitter followers on Saturday. Hi London, she wrote, just hours before taking to the stage for the first of two sold-out shows in London.

Despite her best efforts the thriller has failed to make an impact at the box-office, with critics lining up to give it a mauling following its US release on August 30. Speaking to the New York Daily News, Selena whose last long-term relationship was with Justin Bieber admits she finds it hard to ignore the constant rumours and speculation surrounding her private life. All grown up: Selena looks stunning as she performs at the Hammersmith Apollo It does get to me, she said. I’m a human and I feel those emotions of when people talk about you.
‘G’nite London:’ Selena Gomez meets fans in a cute beanie hat and off-the-shoulder T-shirt after final London gig
Alas, new reports state that Selena might not be as over Justin as everyone had thought. According to several sources, Selena is spitting mad about Justin sending flirty messages to Ariana Grande. Obviously, it was pretty obvious that Ariana made sure that everybody knew about those texts on purpose anyone linked to Justin immediately gets a boost in the media, which is why we imagine Selena stayed with him for so long. However, this means that Selenas still hung up on Justin, which is what the sources reiterate. They claim, Selena is still not over Justin.From what all her friends are saying, shes still majorly hung up on Justin. Although Selenas the one who was reportedly pressured into dumping Justin, she doesnt seem to have fully gotten over him if these rumors are to be believed. You cant blame the guy for moving on they were breaking up again and getting back together more times than I can count, and it would have been especially difficult for him to see her with another guy every other month. Obviously, the fault doesnt lie with just one person, but if Selena is jealous about Ariana getting texts from Justin, she shouldnt be. Shes much better off without him, and Im sure Arianas just happy to be relevant in the mainstream media. RELATED POSTS blog advertising is good for you More HOT Laundry!

cents, firmer than Thursday’s close at C$1.0506, or 95.18 U.S. cents. “The headline is outstandingly strong and once again it reinforces the volatility we’ve been getting in the Canadian job numbers,” said Craig Alexander, chief economist at Toronto-Dominion Bank. “It’s averaging around 12,000 a month, which is a lackluster pace of employment growth and is consistent with an economy that is growing at a modest pace.” At the same time, in the United States, 169,000 jobs were created, short of economists’ expectations of 180,000 new jobs. The miss, along with downward revisions to previous months, sowed some uncertainty over when the Federal Reserve will start to pull back its economic stimulus efforts. Many investors expect the Fed will announce a reduction in the pace of its $85 billion a month in bond purchases when the central bank meets in mid-September. Friday’s jobs report muddied the waters and helped take the greenback lower against a basket of currencies. Still, economists at a majority of U.S. primary dealers expect the Fed to announce later this month it will cut the size of its asset purchases. Economists did scale back the predicted size of the reduction. “The market by and large continues to see that tapering begins in September,” said Jack Spitz, managing director of foreign exchange at National Bank Financial. “The U.S. data was not negative, it was positive, it just wasn’t as positive as one would have liked should they have been in the camp that says there is tapering (coming).” The Canadian jobs data did not change expectations the Bank of Canada will keep interest rates on hold at its next policy meeting.
CANADA STOCKS-TSX may open higher after data cools Fed fears
The schism between the two sides on some major issues could be problematic for the Harper government, as the European Union turns its attention to negotiating a free-trade deal with the United States. The EU and U.S. launched their trade talks over the summer. Canada and the EU have seemingly been deadlocked on a couple of key issues in recent months, including Canadian beef access into Europe, government procurement on urban transit in Canada, and financial services and investment protection. The European Union delegation in Canada said Friday that Harper and Barroso had a constructive meeting and that aThere is further approximation of positions,a with both sides planning to remain in contact in the coming weeks with aa view to conclude negotiations.a Recently leaked documents indicated Canadian negotiators agreed to increase to $1.5 billion the threshold for reviewing foreign acquisitions of Canadian firms by European companies. All EU takeovers under $1.5 billion would not be subject to review under the Investment Canada Act to determine whether theyare of anet benefita to Canada, said the documents. The federal governmentas budget bill, passed in the House of Commons in the spring, increases the threshold for a review of foreign acquisitions from the current $344 million to $1 billion over the next four years. Both sides have agreed to eliminate all industrial tariffs within seven years, saving Canadian exporters more than $200 million annually in duty payments and European exporters more than $600 million annually, said the leaked documents. Leaders from the 20 largest developed and emerging economies concluded their summit Friday by committing to dozens of measures to stabilize the global economy, increase growth, liberalize trade, combat international tax evasion and get their fiscal houses in order. The G20 leaders agreed to extend their commitments to avoid new protectionist trade measures for another two years until 2016 a something that was near the top of Canadaas wish list. aWe recognize the risks of economic slowdown and trade weakening posed by protectionism,a the leaders said in their economic declaration.
Separately, Canada’s economy churned out a surprising 59,200 jobs in August, according to Statistics Canada estimates released on Friday, with most of the gains in part-time work and led by the health care and social assistance sector.

Salma Hayek: ‘I have never tried to be as beautiful as I can be’
So when Salma Hayek voices an alternative fashion motivation, we find her honesty refreshing. In July’s InStyle , cover girl Salma admits that her primary inspiration for putting together a good outfit is her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault : “Im not really a fashionista. I have an eye; I can pull it together, but a lot of the effort I make is for my husband because I want him to be attracted to me.” Surely Salma and Francios work hard to keep the spark alive in their relationship; the 46-year-old actress has admitted to sexting , and we’d imagine her affinity for leather keeps their relationship spicy as well. “My husband loves when I wear it,” Salma says. Ironically, wives have an awful lot of sartorial power over their husbands, as studies have revealed that guys rely on their ladies’ fashion advice when getting dressed. But when it’s a woman’s turn to suit up, some, like Salma, seem to let men’s opinions influence them instead. Would you change your outfit based on your partner’s opinion?

I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course.” When it comes to her husband, French billionaire fashion mogul Francois-Henri Pinault, Hayek says she does take her appearance seriously. Jeff Vespa/WireImage Hayek, 47, is married to French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault. I want him to be attracted to me, she said. “A lot of the effort I make is for my husband because I want him to be attracted to me,” she tells the mag. RELATED: BEYONCE PERFORMS WITH JAY-Z AT SOUND OF CHANGE The sultry screen star is certainly attractive to more than just her husband, but is perhaps more admirable for her work ethic. In addition to being a Hollywood actress and producer, Hayek is an acivist. She helped start Chime for Change, the campaign for women’s empowerment around the world co-founded by Gucci.
“Or not drink alcohol. I could make bigger efforts. I don’t think my first priority in life has ever been beauty. It’s a little bit of a rebellious spirit in me. There is more to me than looks, of course.” Of course. But that doesn’t mean plenty of women wouldn’t go to drastic measures to look like her. Speaking of which, Hayek advises those who might not be so content with themselves: “You’ve got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what you’ve got.” “That goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else,” she says. “You’ve got to have a sense of humor about who you are and give yourself a break. You’ve got to be kind to yourself. And it’s not easy, you know?” The July issue of InStylehits newsstands Friday.

Hitting the shops: Salma Hayek enjoys an afternoon of spending as she browses the designer boutiques of West Hollywood with family members The simple dress featured a slight flared skirt which showed off Salmas toned legs, set off by a pair of wedge peep toe sandals.

Salma Hayek offers Jimmy Fallon an affectionate pat as she plays a bar game with the comedian Salma finished her girly look with a chic cream shoulder bag and matching sunglasses. The actress was obviously hoping to add to her glam wardrobe as she hit the Fred Segal store, departing with a number of shopping bags. Pretty in pink: Salma chose a simple but chic pale pink dress for her family day out, perfect for the summery weather Salma was joined on her shopping spree by various family members who she was spoted laughing and chatting with as they walked around the upmarket boutiques. The actress most likely relished her down time with her nearest and dearest, which comes in the middle of a hectic few months. Fresh from promoting her reprisal role as Adam Sandlers wife in Grown Ups 2, Salma has thrown herself into her next project, animated film The Prophet. Get anything good? Salma left the Fred Segal store with a number of bags Salma will lend her vocal talents to the film alongside The Office star John Krasinski, Frank Langella, Alfred Molina and Beasts of the Southern Wild Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis. The Prophet is an adaptation of the 1923 collection of 26 prose poetry essays by Lebanese artist, philosopher and writer Kahil Gibran. The actress will also serve as producer for the project, working with writer-director Roger Allers, who has helped create a string of Disney classics including The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.
iTunes charts. During their time on the “X Factor,” they covered songs from all artists, including Demi Lovato and Ellie Goulding, which is why MTV News decided to enjoy an afternoon of karaoke in New York City. Watch the video to see the girls in action! The bubbly fivesome said their go-to karaoke songs include Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name” and JoJo’s “Too Little Too Late,” but after combing through thousands of songs, they decided on Britney Spears’ iconic “… Baby One More Time.” Yet, before the quintet showed off their vocal skills, they sat down to discuss their new uptempo pop single, “Me and My Girls,” which they co-wrote. “What’s so cool about that song is girl party songs are all about going out and meeting boys,” Cabello said. “We are like, ‘No, we are going to stay in our pajamas, we are gonna eat some pizza.’ ” Fifth Harmony, who admitted to being a little nervous for their upcoming album , have enlisted some of music’s top producers, including Julian Bunetta who has worked with One Direction, to help put together a debut. “It’s a variation, we talk about different things and different sounds,” Lauren said of the album. “But we get to show the range of our vocals in each of the songs.” Not only do they want to show off their musical capabilities, but they also want to craft songs that their avid fans, who call themselves harmonizers, can relate to. “We want to share with our audience and our harmonizers that we are five girls,” Lauren said. “And we are not perfect and you don’t have to be perfect.
Britney Spears Furious That Kevin Federline Re-Married
The singer apparently went berserk when she heard that her ex-husband Kevin Federline married his baby mama Victoria Prince in a top secret ceremony at a Las Vegas hotel suite. When Britney was told the news, she screamed uncontrollably, a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer. Then she collapsed in tears. The wedding caught her by surprise. She wasnt invited and she didnt even get a call from Kevin to let her know he was marrying Victoria. Britney had to hear about it from one of K-Feds friends after the ceremony was over. It was hard for Britney because shes long suffered from the delusion that she and Kevin would one day get back together and raise their two boys (Sean, 7, and Jayden, 6). Britney and Kevin finalized their divorce back in 2007, but the star always hope theyd reconcile even after she got engaged to her agent Jason Trawick in December 2011, said the insider. Britney has since been dating 27-year-old David Lucado, a former bartender and insurance agent who now works for a Los Angeles legal firm. Kevin and Victoria met nearly five years ago and have a 2-year-old daughter, Jordan. Even after Jordan was born, Britney held onto her fantasy of reconciliation with Kevin, said the insider.
Britney Spears’ Fortune on the Rise: See How Many Millions She’s Making—and Spending!
Billboard notes that All Eyes on Me will be featured on Spears upcoming eighth studio album. The Hit Me Baby (One More Time) singer has not confirmed exactly what All Eyes on Me is, but has teased fans on Twitter that she has something big coming. Patient kiddies! It’s coming MUCH sooner than you think she revealed last Wednesday. MTV reports that this album, which will be her follow up to Femme Fatale, will feature Will.i.am, William Orbit, Sia and Hit Boy. Will.i.am previously spoke about his involvement in Spears newest album saying, We need to talk about what she’s excited about in life. I gotta talk about the things that hurt her. I gotta talk about the things that make her concerned; she’s a mother. Continuing he added, I gotta talk to her about all the things that her fans want to talk to her about. I gotta be the vehicle between her and her fans. We can’t do another song about going on the dance floor. Really?
But if not problems necessarily, then mo’ money comes with mo’ expenses. So, what does Britney have and where? And much does she have to spend to keep her family settled in the lifestyle to which they are accustomed? PHOTOS: Star-watching at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards In the assets department, as of Dec. 31, 2012, the divorced mother of two had $5.78 million in cash distributed among multiple bank accounts; $17.7 million in stocks, mutual funds and other investments; $1.55 million worth of furniture and equipment; and $264,988 million in jewelry, furs and antiques. The list of returns, dividends and interest payments from her various non-cash holdings goes on and onso we can also figure that Britney’s business managers think fast and carry big calculators. Interestingly, we can also see the gifts of Britney’s past labors that keep on giving: She banked $2,243.64 in residuals from repeats of the two episodes of How I Met Your Motherthat she appeared on in 2008 (remember crazy Abby?!), as well as $437.50 from Bridesmaid’s use of her tune “I’ve Just Begun.” The possibly Vegas-bound entertainer also sold off some unspecified real estate for $4.3 million and replaced the fleet, banking $135,800 from sales of a 2002 Ford Think Golf Cart, a 2008 Mercedes, a 2010 BMW 335i and a 2004 Ferrari ($78,000 from that alone). And then, there are the $6.78 million in expenditures, which sounds like a lot, but so much of it went to entities we’re totally familiar with, such as the cable company and Target. Of course, Britney also had five residences to maintain, including homes she owns in Thousand Oaks , Calif., and Louisiana; a rental property in Hidden Hills, Calif., and the Summit Circle house in Beverly Hills that she’s been trying to sell for years. All told, the conservatorship spent more than $1.3 million in residential expenses. PHOTOS: Celebrity mega-mansions Scope Australia, PacificCoastNews.com Speaking of the conservatorship, it costs to maintain that, too.

Britney Spears Teases ‘Beautiful and Heartbreaking’ Collaboration With Sia
The former X Factor USA judge is currently in the midst of laying down songs for her highly-anticipated eighth album which is being produced by her ‘Scream & Shout’ collaborator Will.i.am and it looks set to become a hit already with the pop star managing to score ‘Titanium’ hitmaker Sia for the record.

I’m trying to be like you.” Demi Lovato & Kim Kardashian Despite the age gap (Demi is 20, Kim K is 32), Lovato credits the reality star with supporting her through her tough time in rehab. And the “X Factor” judge seems to be returning the favor, judging by the note Kim wrote her that reads: “Demi, thank you for always being a true friend, for always following your heart and for being an inspiration to me and countless other girls around the world.” (via HollywoodLife) Elton John & Eminem The unlikely pair struck a friendship when they performed at the Grammys together in 2001. But the connection wasn’t left on stage — Sir Elton also helped Em during tough times when the latter was battling addiction. “I’ve been helping Eminem over the last 18 months and he’s doing brilliantly,” John told MTV in 2010. Channing Tatum & Jonah Hill The two actors shared a bromance while shooting “21 Jump Street” in 2012. “I’ve never met anyone like Jonah that can go in and literally win an entire room and get away with just about anything,” Tatum told People. Andy Cohen & John Mayer The Bravo host and singer-songwriter were spotted enjoying the fall weather — and each other’s company — in September.
