|UNITED NATIONS Cheap Men's Off-White x Nike Air Presto Grey , April 28 (Xinhua) Jacques Rogge, former President of the International Olympic Committee, was named Monday as Special Envoy for Youth, Refugees and Sport of the UN Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon.

"We are all keenly aware that in Syria Cheap Men's Nike Air Presto Fly Just Do It Shoes Black , the Central African Republic, South Sudan and elsewhere, conflict, unrest and other circumstances have forced many young people to flee their homes Cheap Air Presto Womens Nike Shoes Grey Pink , placing their futures on hold. Sport has a role to play in helping to restore at least some sense of normalcy," said Ban.
The UN estimates that over 44 million people in the world are forcibly displaced. Among internally displaced population and refugees, children and youth are especially affected and at risk.

Film provocateur Michael Moore will make his theatrical debut in a one-man show that explores the rise of US President Donald Trump and the resistance to him Cheap Womens Nike Air Presto Shoes White , producers announced Monday.
The Terms of My Surrender, which will open in previews on July 28 at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway, was described as ""an exhilarating, subversive one-man show guaranteed to take audiences on a ride through the United States of Insanity.""
The show will explain how Trump emerged and ""where best to dine before crossing over the mountains with the Von Trapp family into Canada Cheap Nike Air Presto Uncaged Ultra Shoes All White ,"" the Belasco Theatre said in a statement, in an allusion to flight from Nazi-ruled Austria in The Sound of Music.
""To unseat a president, it will take an act of Broadway,"" it said.
Moore Cheap Men's Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra Shoes All Black , who had his start as a print journalist, has combined staunch left-wing activism with humorous personal asides in films such as Bowling for Columbine, which tackles US gun culture, and Fahrenheit 911 which took aim at former president George W. Bush's ""war on terror.""
Known for his slovenly look and ever-present baseball cap Cheap Nike Air Presto Flyknit Ultra Shoes All White , Moore lives in his home state of Michigan. He accurately predicted last year that such industrial Midwestern states would swing the election to Trump at a time when most pundits thought the billionaire mogul stood no chance against Hillary Clinton.
The Terms of My Surrender will be directed by Michael Mayer, who collaborated with punk rockers Green Day on their politically charged musical American Idiot and won a Tony Award for Duncan Sheik's rock musical Spring Awakening.
""I think what the world needs right now is Michael Moore standing on a Broadway stage sharing his hilarious stories and incendiary political perspective, creating the kind of dialogue that can only happen in the theater,"" Mayer said in a statement.
Nonetheless Cheap Mens Nike Air Presto QS Shoes Grey , Broadway can be unforgiving to famous names who try to make it. Pop star Sting and TV host Rosie O'Donnell are among celebrities whose live productions have struggled in recent years.
NAIROBI， Feb. 18 (Xinhua) The United States clarified on Saturday that it has not signed any agreement with Kenya toward the purchase of 418 million-U.S. dollar weapons to be used in bolstering the war against Al-Shabaab.
U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert Godec said engagements between Washington and Nairobi on the weapons deal are still being discussed， citing America's commitment to supporting the fight against terrorism.
"To be clear， contrary to some allegations in the media， the government of Kenya has not signed any agreement to purchase aircraft from the U.S. and the process underway is transparent， open， and proper，" Godec said in a statement issued in Nairobi.
"This potential military sale would be carried out wholly in keeping with appropriate laws and regulations，" he added.
The envoy said the public discussion around the potential purchase of AT802-L "Air Tractor" aircraft underscores the transparency and accountability of the U.S. government's "Foreign Military Sales" program.
"If concluded， the Kenyan government would purchase not just aircraft， but training， spare parts， ammunition， and weapons systems，" said Godec.
The U.S. envoy's statement comes after a U.S. congressman tabled a motion in the congress on Tuesday seeking to halt Kenya's spending of 418 million dollars on weapons purchase from a US contractor.
"My office has received credible allegations of faulty contracting practices， fraud and unfair treatment surrounding this sale，" Republican Congressman Ted Budd said on Tuesday.
Budd said IOMAX， a company based in the congressman's own district， can deliver to Kenya a more appropriate and proven type of aircraft for 283 million dollars less than L-3's price.
In urging his colleagues to block and investigate the deal， the North Carolina Republican said a company in his home state would sell Kenya planes better suited for their envisioned purpose at less than half the quoted price.
Congressman Budd is charging that the contract was awarded without competitive bidding to L-3 Communications， which， he said， "has no experience or track record producing this kind of aircraft."
Kenya plans to purchase 12 converted agricultural aircraft that are intended to bolster the Kenya Defence Forces' campaign against Al-Shabaab.
The U.S. military sales process requires notification of the U.S. Congress and allows oversight committees and commercial competitors the opportunity to review.
