顺莹组合势不可挡 刘国伦独闯男单8强!

自从吴柳莹伤愈归来重新联手陈炳顺后,两人逐渐找回比赛感觉状态不俗。-摘自马羽总FB-(吉隆坡18日讯)大马羽球大师赛周四展开次圈角逐,下午上场比赛的刘国伦和奥运银牌混双陈炳顺/吴柳莹势不可挡,高歌挺进8强!

刘国伦状态上升

状态大勇的前法羽赛冠军刘国伦,从入选赛打进后首圈就拿下赛会4号种子孙完虎,而在周四下午的16强赛中,他在鏖战了70分钟后,以21比17、19比21、21比16击退韩国全奕陈晋级。

只可惜大马20岁小将李梓嘉,以21比19、14比21、15比 21败在印尼佐纳丹的拍下,无缘8强。成为大马男单独苗的刘国伦,将在周五与泰国苏班尤争夺半决赛入场券。

另一边厢同样令人瞩目的“顺莹”组合,鏖战73分钟后以21比18、13比21、21比18艰辛拿下丹麦6号种子马蒂亚斯/克里斯汀娜晋级,8强将遭遇香港2号种子邓俊文/谢影雪。

自从吴柳莹去年5月动手术后,大马前第一混双被逼“暂时”拆伙大半年,直到上个月柳莹伤愈复出后才重新合体,首战就在泰羽赛一举夺魁,这次在家门口作战也是状态大好,有望收获第二冠。

陈炳顺在赛后表示,能够打败这支丹麦组合,给了他们很大的信心,毕竟两人很久没有合作,上一站也没有遇到实力强悍的对手。

吴柳莹则指出,已经知道这是一场硬战,由于才刚伤愈复出,还没有足够的信心应付激烈的比赛,希望能够尽快找回比赛感觉。

而另外两支同样晋级8强的去年大马赛冠亚军,陈健铭/赖沛君和吴顺发/赖洁敏即将上演同室操戈战,以争夺半决赛资格。

马女双全军覆没!

“最美组合”许嘉雯/温可微仍找不回状态,次圈赛就遭淘汰出局。-摘自马羽总FB-大马队原本在周三收获4对女双携手晋级次圈的好消息,不过“最美组合”许嘉雯/温可微,却遭中国组合黄东萍/李汶妹以26比24、21比12直落两局淘汰出局。

即将在2月退出国家队的林芸如搭档叶铮雯,则以14比21、18比21不敌中国7号种子汤金华/于小含,止步次圈。

同样步她们后尘的就是邹美君/李明宴,遭韩国5号种子申昇瓚/李绍希以21比18、21比12横扫无缘8强。

而最后上场的宋佩珠/郑清亿,同样两局不敌赛会头号种子陈清晨/贾一凡饮恨出局,大马女双宣告全军覆没。

British lawmakers back Brexit legislation, stiffer tests yet to come (VIDEO)

LONDON, Jan 18 — British lawmakers voted in favour of the government’s legislative blueprint for Brexit yesterday, marking a victory for Prime Minister Theresa May over political opponents who want a softer approach to leaving the European Union.

But the legislation will now face scrutiny from parliament’s largely pro-EU upper house, where May’s party does not have a majority, which will intensify efforts to force a re-run of a 2016 referendum, and water down or even stop the divorce.

The bill repeals the 1972 law that made Britain a member of the EU. — Reuters picThe European Union (Withdrawal) Bill was approved by a 324 to 295 vote in the lower house - a milestone on the long road towards cementing the legal foundations of Britain’s departure from the bloc.

The bill repeals the 1972 law that made Britain a member of the EU, and transfers EU laws into British ones.

“This bill is essential for preparing the country for the historic milestone of withdrawing from the European Union,” Brexit minister David Davis told parliament before the vote.

“It ensures that on day one we will have a statute book that works, delivering the smooth and orderly exit desired by people and businesses across the United Kingdom and being delivered by this government.”

The bill has become the focal point for months of divisive debate about what type of EU divorce Britain should seek, severely testing May’s ability to deliver on her exit strategy without a parliamentary majority.

But despite one embarrassing parliamentary defeat, several government concessions and rebellion from within her own party, May’s Conservative lawmakers overcame opposition from the Labour Party and others.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn instructed his lawmakers to vote against passage of the bill because the government had not met conditions set out by the party, demanding safeguards on a range of issues including workers and consumer rights.

“This bill has never been fit for purpose,” said Labour’s Brexit policy chief, Keir Starmer, describing any attempt to persuade the government that the legislation needed to change as “talking to a brick wall”.

Lords scrutiny

The upper house, the House of Lords, will now begin months of scrutiny of the bill before it can become law. Any changes made by the lords will require approval from the lower house, and the whole process could take until May to complete.

The House of Lords contains a diverse, largely unelected, mix of political appointees, experts, and members who inherited their positions. Many lords are opposed to Brexit.

Some of those figures are expected to try to soften the Brexit approach to include remaining in the EU’s single market or a second public vote, but the most likely areas for changes involve technical and constitutional issues.

May has ruled out a second vote and says Britain will be leaving. Labour’s Corbyn is also committed to following through with Brexit, albeit pushing for different priorities and aims.

Nevertheless, calls for a second referendum are expected to persist, particularly as both pro- and anti-EU politicians have mooted the possibility recently.

EU officials and some member states have said they would welcome a change of heart from Britain.

But, barring a major change of policy from one of the country’s two largest political parties, Britain remains on course to leave the bloc in March 2019. — Reuters

US jobless claims hit 45-year low as labour market tightens

A sign advertises open jobs at an Embassy Suites hotel in Waltham, Massachusetts, US, December 13, 2017. — Reuters picWASHINGTON DC, Jan 18 — New claims for US unemployment benefits fell to their lowest level in nearly 45 years last week, a fresh sign of the increasingly tight American labour market, according to weekly data released today.

The figures, though volatile, follow a Federal Reserve survey showing businesses nationwide face mounting difficulties filling job openings as the supply of available workers dwindles amid record low unemployment.

For the week ended January 13, new applications for jobless benefits fell 41,000 to 222,000, the lowest since February 1973, the US Labor Department reported. Analysts had been expecting a decrease of only 10,000.

The less volatile four-week moving average fell by 6,250 to 244,500.

The data were collected during the survey week for the closely-watched monthly jobs report, suggesting January could see continued strong job creation.

Jobless claims have now held below 300,000 for nearly three years, the longest streak since 1972. But analysts say the current low trend is likely the lowest ever, given changes in the size of the population and labour force.

Though the numbers can see big swings from week to week, the claims report can be used to gauge the strength of demand for labour and the health of jobs markets.

Given the growing reports of labour shortages, employers have reduced layoffs to record low levels partly out of fear they may not be able to replace the workers they let go.

Central bankers have been perplexed that inflation and wage gains have not been driven higher amid the low unemployment, but the Federal Reserve’s latest nationwide survey indicates wage increases are happening in a broader array of industries and in some cases are constraining growth.

The Fed, holds its next monetary policy meeting at the end of this month, is expected to raise the benchmark interest rate three times this year after three hikes in 2017. — AFP
