KAMPALA adidas daroga shoes uk , Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- Uganda's sports governing body on Monday said that it is facing a financial crisis that may not enable it to send a big contingent to the 2015 All Africa Games scheduled for next month.

Jasper Aligawesa, Secretary to the National Council of Sports told Xinhua that the Council is facing a deficit of 550,000 U.S. dollars.

"There is no way we shall take the full contingent of 80 people if we don't get all the money adidas marathon shoes uk ," Aligawesa said.

The Games that bring together almost all African countries will take place Sept. 4-19. Uganda is expected to field athletes in boxing, athletics, badminton adidas stan smith shoes uk , tennis, basketball (women), swimming adidas superstar supercolor uk , table tennis, cycling, weightlifting and paralympics.

Aligawesa said they are looking at government to provide the deficit.

At the 2011 All Africa Games in Maputo adidas superstar 2 uk , Mozambique, Uganda finished 14th with four gold, one silver and three bronze medals. Athletes Annet Negesa and three time Commonwealth Games gold medalist Moses Ndiema Kipsiro won gold medals in the 800 meters and 5000 meters respectively.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- The past is never dead. It's not even past, wrote William Faulkner, a late U.S. Nobel Prize winner.

Resonating to the remarks, a new, grand museum setting for the tale of African American history and achievement, the only one in the U.S. exclusively focused on African-Americans, officially opened in central Washington D.C., U.S. capital, on Saturday.

The opening came amid a new wave of racial tensions especially between black people and police, following the police shooting deaths of black men in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Charlotte, North Carolina, earlier this month.

"We're not a burden on America or a stain on America or an object of shame and pity for America. We are America," Barack Obama, the first African-American U.S. president, said at the National Museum of African-American History and Culture.

The museum, chronicling black history from the 15th century to present, has collected tens of thousands of artifacts largely donated by ordinary people across the United States.

Among more than 3,000 items on display are a slave cabin, a bill of sale for a 16-year-old girl for 600 dollars, shackles used on slaves, a Justice 4 Trayvon placard and a Black Lives Matter T-shirt. Curators also collected artifacts and videos about the death of Freddie Gray while in the custody of Baltimore police.

"It reminds us that routine discrimination and Jim Crow aren't ancient history. It's just a blink in the eye of history," Obama said, expecting the museum could elevate the often-overlooked impact of black Americans and help others better understand the breadth of the American story.

"Perhaps it can help a white visitor understand the pain and anger of demonstrators in places like Ferguson (Missouri) and Charlotte," said Obama.

"It can also help black visitors appreciate the fact that not only is this younger generation carrying on traditions of the past, but within the white communities across the nation, we see the sincerity of law enforcement officers and officials who, in fits and starts, are struggling to understand and trying to do the right thing," he immediately added.

The museum also contains many iconic items celebrating the African-Americans' achievements in sports, music, television, film and so on, including singer Michael Jackson's fedora hat, boxer Muhammad Ali's headgear and baseball star Jackie Robinson's bat.

"This national museum helps to tell a richer and fuller story of who we are," the president concluded.

"At this time in our country, there is a great need for contextualization and the clarity that comes from understanding one's history," Lonnie Bunch III, founding director of the museum, wrote in a recent issue of Smithsonian magazine.

"I hope that the museum can play a small part in helping our nation grapple with its tortured racial past. And maybe even help us find a bit of reconciliation." he wrote.

The museum, constructed from Feb. 2014 under a bill signed by then U.S. president George Bush in 2003, is a three-tiered building whose exterior is made up of 3,600 bronze-colored panels. The architects said they drew on imagery from both African and American histories for the outer layer, trying to express faith, hope and resilience, according to a CNN report.

"A great nation doesn't hide its history," Bush said at the opening ceremony, "It faces its flaws, and corrects them."

RB Leipzig are top of the Bundesliga with the winter break fast approaching in their first season in the top flight adidas superstar slip on uk , but not everyone is wrapped up in the fairytale. Instead, the unbeaten league leaders are being viewed as everything that is wrong with German football.

The club only began seven years ago when the current owners purchased the playing license of a fifth-tier team but they have risen up the leagues rapidly since. They sit top of the table with their young coach leading a young team and there's nary a superstar among them but none of this has won the public over.

The club is owned by Red Bull group and while the RB doesn't actually stand for the initials of the energy drink - its RasenBallsport, German for lawn sports - it is only because they were forbidden by the league. Aside from the rapid rise and outside investment that go against the fairness and tradition German football prides itself on adidas superstar foundation uk , the club are also said to operate against the spirit of fan-ownership.

Hiking membership prices is within the letter of the 50+1 law in place to protect supporter interests but it has effectively allowed the board full control.

A deeper look at the German football landscape suggests that this hatred of the league leaders is misplaced. For all the talk of fairness, Bayern are financially untouchable, dominant on and off the pitch adidas superstar pride pack uk , and have .
