We are not here to deliver the Cup and leave. We are here

to stay by making big investments,” said the 38-year-old Greek.

“Of course our sport is very popular in China and organizing the Cup will make it even more popular. A good perfo

rmance by the national team will give it an extra boost. We are harnessing our potential under the leadership of Yao Ming.”

FIBA’s footprint in China has become more noticeable in recent ye

ars. Last June, the governing body unveiled plans to build a “one-of-a-kind” basketball aca

demy in Beijing in conjunction with Beijing Enterprises Group Company Limited to foster young Chinese talent.

And, in collaboration with the CBA, the first-ever FIBA World Basketball Summit was held in Xi’an, Shaanxi province in October.

President Xi Jinping on Monday presided over a symposium in Beijing for teachers of ideological and political theory.

Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Central Committee

and chairman of the Central Military Commission, delivered an important speech at the symposium.

There haven’t been too many that are bigger emergenc

  than what we have” at our border, he said.Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials fr

om Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones

killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.

  While some lawmakers — including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency power

s in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter

to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.

  ”The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concern

ing the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal

basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which larg

ely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.

The approach — particularly the threats of re-election reperc

  ussions — stemmed defections from several Republicans up for re

-election in 2020, but ultimately failed to stop the Senate from passing the resolution.

  Trump tweeted about the political advantage he expects those who supported him will receive.

  ”I’d like to thank all of the Great Republican Senators who bravely voted for Strong Bo

rder Security and the WALL. This will help stop Crime, Human Trafficking, and Drugs entering our Cou

ntry. Watch, when you get back to your State, they will LOVE you more than ever before!” Trump tweeted Friday.

  Trump’s veto sends the resolution back to the US House of Re

presentatives, which is expected to pick it up after the week-long congressional recess. The Hous

e is not expected to have the two-thirds of the chamber’s support needed to override the President’s veto.

European Union to suspend all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft at 3

  The European Union is suspending all operations of all Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in Europe beginning at 3 p.m. ET, according to a statement.

  “As a precautionary measure, EASA has published today an Airworthiness Directive, effect

ive as of 19:00 UTC, suspending all flight operations of all Boeing Model 737-8 MAX and 737-9 MAX aeroplanes in Europe.”

  ”In addition EASA has published a Safety Directive, effective as of 19:00 UTC, suspendi

ng all commercial flights performed by third-country operators into, within or out of the EU of the above mentioned models.”

  The announcement follows a growing tide of European countries that grounded or banned the airplane from flying overhead.

  The president of a major flight attendant union on T

uesday called for the Federal Aviation Administration to temporarily ground the Boeing 737 MAX fle

et “until FAA-identified fixes to the plane can be installed, communicated, and confirmed.”

Austria, Poland and Italy are the latest to ground 737 MAX 8s

  Austria, Poland and Italy have all suspended the use of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in the aftermath of the Ethiopian Airlines crash.

  Austria announced the suspension of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft over the apparent “massive pr

oblems” with the fleet, a statement from Austria’s Transport Minister Norbert Hofer said on Tuesday. Hofer added that “safety is a top

priority” and the decision to ground the aircrafts was made “on the basis of the facts currently available.”

  Italy said it was grounding all Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft as of 9 p.

m. Tuesday (4 p.m. ET) over the “continuing lack of definite information” since the fatal Eth

iopian Airlines crash on Sunday, according to a statement from the Italian Civil Aviation Authority (ENAC) on Tuesday.

  The Polish national carrier LOT also said on Twitter: “In connection with the decision of subse

quent #LOT aircraft agencies, LOT flights with the Boeing # 737MAX8 are suspended until further not

ce.” “Connections as far as the fleet is concerned will be carried out using other types of aircraft,” LOT spokesperson Adrian Kubicki tweeted.

We still don’t know what caused the crashreacted to it.

  The first major clue will come from the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice r

ecorder, which were both recovered from the scene of the disaster on Monday.

  Those crucial items are in the custody of Ethiopian Civil Aviation Auth

ority in Addis Ababa, but it’s not yet clear where they will be analyzed. Ethiopian Airlines CE

O Tewolde GebreMariam told CNN Tuesday that they will be sent to another country for scrutiny.

  Full investigations into an aviation disaster can take years — but the first indications of what

those recorders tell us should emerge in the coming days.Following the Lion Air crash, it took fou

r days from the discovery of the flight data recorder for Indonesia’s National Transportation Safety Committee to reve

al that the plane had a malfunctioning air speed indicator for its last four flights, and at the time of the crash.

  The black box and voice recorder are the starting point for any air crash investigation — th

ey provide a vital insight into what took place in the final moments of a flight, and how the pilots reacted to it.

He said China’s capital controls will continue to be a f

factor in Chinese outbound investments in 2018. “If you are a company where real estate and property development is your ma

in line of business I think you will have a better chance of getting your foreign investment approved,” he said.

Despite the decline in Chinese investment, the US commercial real estate markets weathered the loss of capi

tal well. Because New York and San Francisco receive two-thirds of every Chinese investment dollar according to the

report, the effect of the falloff was limited, according to Barry Hersh, a real estate professor at New York University.

Overall, China fell to third in total foreign investment in American real estate behind Cana

da and Singapore, according to the report. Bitner said other sources of capital stepped in to fill the void. “Capital fro

m Canada, Singapore, Japan and South Korea is coming into the US market,” he said.
