Headline : Anger grows towards Russia over MH17 crash
Rescue efforts were in disarray as armed gunmen in fatigues and balaclavas refused to allow international monitors full access and the grisly remains of some of the 298 pas-sengers killed have yet to be removed.
Ukraine has warned that the rebels, who Kiev and the US have accused of blowing the plane out of the sky with a missile, were hours away from removing key evidence across the Russian border.
As fears grew that evidence was being tampered with world leaders voiced their frustration with Moscow, pushing East-West ties to crisis point after months of discord over the Kremlins interference in ex-Soviet Ukraine.
US Secretary of State John Kerry told Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov that Wash-ington was deeply concerned investigators were denied proper access to the crash site for a second consecutive day.
His spokeswoman Jen Psaki later said the unacceptable insecurity at the crash site was an affront to all those who lost loved ones and to the dignity the victims deserve.
The United States is also very concerned about reports that the remains of some victims and debris from the site are being tampered with or inappropriately removed from the site, the State Department said.
Kerry was backed by leaders from Britain, the Netherlands, Malaysia, Australia and France -- as well as Ukraine -- in calling on Russian President Vladimir Putin to intervene in getting an international probe under way.

Hanks arrived Friday in Egypt and told the local independent daily newspaper Al-Masry Al-Youm that it was his first visit to the Red Sea, though hes read a lot about it. The newspaper said Hanks will be sleeping in a yacht in the Red Sea during the filming.
Egypts state news agency MENA reported that Hanks will film scenes in diving areas off the coast.
The movie is directed by German filmmaker Tom Tykwer and is based on a 2012 novel by Dave Eggers. Hanks will play the role of a struggling American salesman who travels to Saudi Arabia to sign a contract with a wealthy monarch, but
instead finds himself entangled in a series of mis-adventures.
The movie is set to be released in 2015.Egyptian officials view Hanks visit as a boost
to the countrys faltering tourism industry, a top foreign currency earner battered by three years of political turmoil. Hurghada is one of the countrys best known destinations, renowned for its diving sites and colorful coral reefs.
LOS ANGELES The new Captain America will be an Afri-can American. Marvel Comics chief creative officer Joe Quesada says superhero Sam The Falcon Wilson will take over as the patriotic Avenger in an upcoming installment of the long-running comic book series.

Wilson first appeared as winged superhero Falcon in 1969 and was one of comics first African-American superheroes.
The change will come this November in All-New Captain America No. 1.

A man looks for the remains of victims in the debris at the crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 near the village of Hrabove, eastern Ukraine, Saturday, July 19, 2014. World leaders demanded Friday that pro-Russia rebels who control the eastern Ukraine crash site of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 give immediate, unfettered access to independent investigators to determine who shot down the plane.
GRABOVE - Outraged world leaders heaped pressure on Russia Sunday to press Moscow-backed rebels in eastern Ukraine to allow investigators proper access to the crash site of the Malaysian MH17 jet.

Bribery habits have ingrained in this country and happen in many aspects of life. It does not only happen in searching of a favorite school, but also often occurs when looking for job opportunity. One of the most frequent heard issues is in the transaction of seats for Civil Servant (PNS). Unmitigatedly, the amount is quite fantastic, reaching hundreds of millions of rupiahs.
Chairman of the Tabanan Edu-cation Council, Wayan Madra Suartana, said that bribery habit in the education field, as his observa-tion, gradually started to disappear.
Yet, what happened then was even a pressure from society. Neverthe-less, his party indeed admitted that in the past there was a bribery habit in order that students could be received at favorite schools. Yes, it indeed happened in the past. But now, as monitoring of the education council, bribe no longer happens in the new student admis-sion. What happens today is even the pressure from the public, he said, Saturday (Jul 19).
According to him, the corrup-tion habit recently happened at workplace was probably caused
by the inculcation of erroneous mindset since the beginning. At childhood, for instance, parents tended to implant false mindset to their children that were lazily going to school. They were ex-pected to attend school diligently in order to get job easily so the life would be easier. Undeniably, the statement would be understood by children that knowledge was a means to find out a job and raise money. When this understanding had been embedded in the mind, people would never learn to think unless for the sake of materials and
it never came to their mind in order to become or have the mentality of a leader.
From the beginning, they would only think to attend school dili-gently, graduated from school, got a job, collected money and lived happily. So, it was no won-der if many scholars were then unemployed, many officials got involved in corruption and others. It began with the doctrine that armed with the education people could get a job or become civil servant.
Madra added that it would be
very difficult to cut off bribery habit at workplace posing the chain of corruption. Not only corrup-tion, the employees received with bribe would have less sense of responsibility to their job descrip-tion including the responsibility for the leadership. As feeling to have backing individual, it tends to result in hesitancy when giv-ing a task. Unlike the case with employees that are purely selected based on educational background and capability, they will be more responsible for their duties, he said. (bit)
Information collected in the field on Friday afternoon (Jul 18) mentioned if Sujana was a student with excellent achieve-ment at the Diploma 3 majoring in Hospitality at the Ganesha Education University, Singaraja. He was preparing his paper. Dur-ing at college, Sujana was known to have many foreign college friends.
Sujana had a younger sister, Kadek Sunarti, and younger brother Komang Sudiana. While studying at college, he sup-ported his family and education costs of his brother and sister. Meanwhile, his parents Ketut Ginastra and Wayan Sukri only relied on their income from sell-ing vegetables and salt farming. No wonder if Sujana had been the backbone of his family. Defi-nitely, his family was shocked after getting the information if the plane carrying Sujana fell on the flight from Amsterdam to Malaysia, Thursday (Jul 17).
The father of Sujana, Ketut Ginastra, when met at his resi-dence was shocked and unable to hold his sadness related to
the accident happened to his son. Meanwhile, his family and neighbors began to arrive and ask the truth of the information at issue.
Last Saturday, Kadek Su-narti said that her brother went to Belgium on June 18, 2014. He departed with his college friend at the Diploma 3 of Hospitality at the Ganesha Education Univer-sity, Singaraja. His college friend was a student from the Nether-lands. Sujana came to Belgium to attend the wedding reception of his boss named Bens where he worked. In addition, Sujana also attended the wedding invitation of one of the fellow students in the Netherlands. At that time, he set out with friends because hav-ing received a wedding invitation from his boss and his friend in the Netherlands. But, I do not know the day of the wedding ceremony, she said.
Having been stay overseas for quite some time and by chance a ceremony would be held at his home and completed his paper, Sujana decided to go back to Bali. On Friday morning
(Jul 18) around 02:00 a.m., his sister chatted via Facebook if he would be going back to Bali. Sujana mentioned if the flight from Amsterdam would transit in Malaysia and arrived at Ngurah Rai Airport in Denpasar, Friday (Jul 18). My brother said he would come back to Bali and sent his picture when he was at the airport in Amsterdam, she explained.
On Friday (Jul 18), she was shocked after watching news on TV if the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 fell. At first, she did not believe the news and did not feel any strange thing. She also looked for information to know the whereabouts of Sujana via the internet. The information was finally getting clearer after the embassy and the airport au-thority of Malaysia contacted the family to convey if the passenger on behalf of Wayan Sujana was including one of the passengers on board of the unlucky Malay-sia Airlines MH-17. I was very surprised and after getting the information from the embassy, in fact, our brother was in the

SINGARAJA - The information on the incident afflicting the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 falling in Ukraine caused the family of Wayan Sujana, 25, one of the passengers from Banyuwedang hamlet, Pejarakan, Gerokgak, to be instantly surprised.

said the family had been ready to accept the worst possibility experienced by Sujana. For initial measure, Ginastra and his family would immediately hold ngulapin ceremony to draw together the spirit of Sujana. Hopefully, we can be helped handle our son, even though the worst possible thing will happen, he explained. (kmb38)

A new version of software that synchs to UP24 lifestyle-track-ing wristbands was released on Wednesday with features tailored to help people trim waistlines by tapping into insights about what they are packing into their tum-mies.
This goes after weight man-agement, Jawbone wellness and platform group manager Andrew Rosenthal told AFP.
We know that people want to make it easier to eat healthier.
UP24 bands use sensors to track how active wearers are and how well they sleep, but the diet piece of the fitness puzzle has to be logged manually making it the easiest to be left out.
Jawbone data shows that more than three quarters of people who use UP bands have weight goals in mind.
UP and UP24 have inspired millions of people to get engaged in their own health -- weve shown that living better really is a univer-sally popular proposition, said Jawbone strategy vice president Travis Bogard.
For the nearly three out of four Americans that are overweight or obese, living better often includes weight loss.
Added food and weight fea-tures for UP bands combined with new third-party applications focused on food are intended to
PARIS - Millions of cases of Alzheimers could be prevented by altering lifestyle habits which increase risk of the tragic memo-ry-robbing disease, scientists said on Monday.
Alzheimers is an age-related brain condition that experts sus-pect is influenced by both genes and the environment.
The population boom and lon-ger lifespans mean that more than
106 million people will be living with Alzheimers by 2050 com-pared with 30 million in 2010, according to predictions.
The study, led by Carol Brayne, a professor of public health at at the University of Cambridge, looked at seven risk factors for which there was strong evidence of an associa-tion with the disease.
These were diabetes, midlife hy-pertension, midlife obesity, physical inactivity, depression, smoking and low educational attainment.
By reducing the relative risk from each of these factors by 10 percent, it should be possible to slash global prevalence of Alzheimers in 2050 by 8.5 percent, preventing nine mil-lion cases, it said.
A 2011 estimate said that as many as one in two cases of Alzheimers could be prevented through changes in lifestyle and personal wellbeing.
But the new study said that this estimate was too high, as some of the risk factors are intertwined.
For instance, diabetes, hyperten-sion and obesity are linked with physical inactivity and all in turn are influenced by educational level.
The paper is a mathematical model based on the notion that the seven risk factors are causes rather than just statistical associa-tions -- an assumption that is often fiercely debated in medicine.
Although there is no single way to prevent dementia, we may be able to take steps to reduce our risk of developing dementia at
older ages, Brayne said in a press release issued by Cambridge.
We know what many of these factors are, and that they are often linked.
Simply tackling physical in-activity, for example, will reduce levels of obesity, hypertension and diabetes, and prevent some people from developing dementia as well as a healthier old age in general - its a win-win situation.
The paper appears in the jour-nal The Lancet Neurology.
Lifestyle choices cut Alzheimer toll: study
UP24 lifestyle bracelets take aim at waistlines
SAN FRANCISCO - In the booming world of smart watches, pendants and brace-lets that let people track sleep and steps, wearable computing pioneer Jawbone is out to win hearts through stomachs.
nudge people toward healthful lifestyles.
Help shedding poundsJawbone introduced new UP24
wristbands late last year as the wearable computers evolve into smart accessories augmenting Internet lifestyles.
The second-generation UP band tracks how active wearers are or how well they are sleep-ing or eating, then communicates wirelessly with smartphones or tablets to make recommendations in the moment about pursuing healthier lifestyles.
The San Francisco company has been innovating to put UP bands, Jambox wireless speakers and Jawbone earpieces at the center of merging trends in wearable tech-nology and the Internet of things.
Up software applications tap into Jawbone servers where be-haviors can be assessed and help-ful feedback sent for wearers to see when next they glance at their mobile device screens.
UP applications can reveal facts such as at what time of day someone tends to be most idle or when a person sleeps worst, and then suggest how to improve
situations.Ramped up food features in
the latest UP mobile software in-clude making games of reaching for goals such as eating sufficient fiber or shedding pounds.
It also reaches into the Internet cloud for nutritional informa-tion about dishes in restaurants with online menus.
The software remembers what people tend to eat and what foods are typically paired, such as bacon with eggs or fries with a burger.
Wearers can even have a daily calorie budget that updates in real time.
UP bands have become Jaw-bones top selling product since the first version was introduced in 2011, but the company would not disclose sales figures.
Its an exciting place to be, but evolving the product is a big part of the project, Rosenthal said.
We look at it as an entire sys-tem. People get excited about not just having the data, but being able to make sense of it.
UP harnesses the power of peer support, and pressure, by letting users share accomplishments and goals privately with circles of friends.
Exports of the products of small industries including canned fish components of house build-ings, plastics, shoes, bags and textiles were valued at US$78.51 million or 36.51 percent of the total export value, head of the provincial office of the Central Bureau of Statistics (BPS) Panusunan Siregar said on Sunday.
The total export value of Bali fell slightly from US$216.92 million in the same period in 2013.
Exports of the household handicraft were valued at US$93.26 million or 41.90 percent.
Other commodities accounted for 21.59 percent such as plantation and other agricultural commodi-ties including fishery products.
Panusunan Siregar the main markets include the United States accounting for 20.82 percent and Singapore accounting for 14.62 percent of the exports, Japan 12.23 percent, Australia 5.25 percent, Thailand 4.18 percent and a number of other countries.

Bali, In-donesia, Sunday, July 20,
DENPASAR - The application of progres-sive tax reaps complaints again from the public. Due to administering the progressive tax, many people are late because the tax payment due date has passed. Even, one-day late is considered one year, so the taxpayers are imposed with fine, ranging from hun-dreds of thousands to millions of rupiahs.
One of the taxpayers, I Dewa Putu Sudar-sana, experienced such condition. He admin-istered the tax payment of his vehicle that was due on June 16, 2014. Actually he had prepared the requirements of the progressive tax such as attaching family card (KK) and the identity card of the vehicle owner.
However, when he was about to register in the counter of progressive tax payment, the clerk rejected him because the data of his vehicle did appear in the database file. The data did not appear as blocked at the revenue service (Dispenda). To retrieve the data, there must be a certificate of finance. For this requirement, I have met, he explained.
Then, he re-registered the vehicle, but local officer said it could not. As a result, the tax payment was late. The next day, Thursday (Jul 17), I came back to the counter of progressive tax payment. However, at that time the system crashed and did not work. So, automatically, I was imposed with fine, he complained.
The fine to be paid was not in small
amount namely over IDR 4 million. Un-derstandably, his vehicle was Hammer with license plate DK 90 DS. The basic amount of tax to be paid is IDR 16 million, but it was then IDR 20 million more as I paid it late. Actually, the fine did not matter. But I was fined due to administering the progressive tax, he said.
Such condition caused Sudarsana to pay a fine worth IDR 4 million more. He said the implementation of progressive taxation by the government was actually good. However, the time and system should be improved, so that people were not made surprised. It was not only experienced by me, but many other people also faced the same problem, he explained.
According to him, the Bali Revenue Ser-vice lacked of socialization. I agree with the implementation of progressive taxation. However, it was only conducted for one month. Have a look at Surabaya, it also ap-plied similar tax but it took two years. Of course, Balinese people will be surprised if the socialization was only carried out within a month, he exclaimed.
Meanwhile, the Head of Bali Revenue Service, I Wayan Suarjana, when contacted last Saturday admitted if the system crashed. He said that his party would check it first. Yes, as an electronic device, it can surely get trouble. However, this will become a note for us, he said via short message. (kmb21)

Division Head of Legislation Enforcement of the Denpasar Mu-nicipal Police, I Wayan Wirawan, accompanied by Secretary of Denpasar Billboard Organizing Team I Gede Cipta Sudewa on the sidelines of dismantling the billboards revealed if the billboard owner had been given reprimand letter up to three times gradually in order to dismantle the billboard by themselves. However, it was ignored. When the permit expired, the officers should take decisive
action. Demolition of the bill-board was witnessed by the owner. But the billboard owner insisted on requesting a delay to the execution because many power cables are connected to the billboard, said Wirawan.
Wirawan asked the billboard owner to pay attention to the rep-rimand letter delivered in stages. It had been delivered through the mechanism, so the billboard owner whose permit had expired should be ready to be executed. Moreover,
the permit of other large and small billboards existing along Jalan Teuku Umar had expired, so the area should be cleaned up pursuant to the existing moratorium. We just focus first on dismantling the billboards on Jalan Teuku Umar be-cause the road in the area becomes a pilot project other than 23 other road sections in Denpasar City, he said.
In addition to dismantling the billboard of L. Figo, Wirawan said, his party also dismantled the billboard owned by Jaya Giri Advertising at the intersection of Jalan Teuku Umar and Jalan Imam Bonjol (four-way intersection of Buagan) because the permit and tax period had expired.
After the demolition, in accor-dance with the zonation of billboard on Jalan Teuku Umar, there would be 27 new zones of billboard instal-lation, including five units of LED
TV. After the Eid, the demolition of the illegal billboard at the inter-section of Jalan Teuku Umar will be resumed. The billboard to be demolished is quite large and takes a long time, he explained.
The dismantling of billboards that violated the moratorium and Mayoral Decree, added Wirawan, would be prioritized at the intersec-tion of Jalan Teuku Umar and the other main roads. The radius of 100 meters from the intersection should be freed from large and small bill-boards currently protruding into road and overlapping. Moreover, many billboard owners had signed a statement to dismantle the bill-boards by themselves. However, the owners seemed to play hide-and-seek and avoided spending costs for the demolition.
Secretary of the Denpasar Bill-board Organizing Team, I Gede Cipta Sudewa, revealed the zones
of billboard installation along Jalan Teuku Umar had been available, and all the billboards currently standing were without permit and soon to be demolished. Demolition of the large- and medium-size billboards will remain to be coordinated with the Municipal Police team as the judicial team leader. When it is ready with the leased equipment, we will come down together, said Cipta Sudewa.
He added the advertisement per-mit having been available today was for vertical billboard sizing 4 x 8 meters and used a backlight, so that it would be cool and not glare when viewed. The size and location of the billboards to be applied by the entrepreneurs have its own zones. The billboards that are not suitable with the installation zones must be dismantled, said this Division Head of the Spatial Planning and Housing Agency. (kmb12)
This is a very active and fluid situation, fire spokesman Chuck Turey said. As of Saturday morn-ing, the lightning-caused fire had scorched nearly 340 square miles (880 square kilometers) in the sce-
nic Methow Valley. The fire was measured at 260 square miles (673 square kilometer) miles Friday. The fire has blackened hillsides, de-stroyed homes and downed power lines. Many towns were without
electrical power or phone service Saturday.
Officials said there are no re-ports of serious injuries and only one more structure was destroyed overnight by the lightning-caused wildfire. Minor burns and bruises had been reported, but Turey called that a pretty amazing safety re-cord. Airplanes and helicopters were dropping water and fire re-tardant on all parts of the fire, with no one area more of a concern than another, Turey said.
As the fire got closer the town of
Carlton, rancher Pete Scott brought 60 cattle to his property in town from the range land. His home, a green oasis, is serving a meeting point for some of the displaced residents. Were trying to survive, Scott said. The fire has calmed down near another town, Pateros, where it destroyed about 100 homes Thurs-day and Friday, Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers said.
The fire has picked up on its north side closer to Winthrop, but winds have been erratic and were blowing the fire in different direc-
tions. The blaze was burning in a sparsely populated area, with homes scattered throughout the woods and along the highway.
Gov. Jay Inslee said about 50 fires were burning in Washington, which has been wracked by hot, dry weather, gusting winds and light-ning. Some 2,000 firefighters were working in the eastern part of the state, with about a dozen helicop-ters. Karina Shagren, spokeswoman for the states Military Department, said 100 National Guard troops were on standby.

NEW YORK The jetliner is much more than a machine used to get from one spot to another. It often carries deep symbolism, es-pecially when flying for a national airline.
It can represent hope, modernity and a countrys power. And when things go wrong, that once mighty plane can bring about deep national disgrace.
Malaysia now finds itself grappling with the horrific and extremely unusual loss
of two of its airplanes, just four months apart. Its a sad coincidence that also stings.
It is unbelievable misfortune that struck (Malaysia Airlines) in such a short span of time. It will not affect Malaysias name, but it will damage the airlines reputation, said James Chin, political analyst at Monash University in Malaysia.
The shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 on Thursday over Ukraine comes just 131 days after the disappearance of Flight 370. That Boeing 777 is presumed to be on the floor of the Indian Ocean but, without any scrap of wreckage found, it remains the key to one of the biggest aviation mysteries.
Fair or not, the back-to-back incidents have led travelers to question the safety of flying Malaysia Airlines. Malaysian officials were widely criticized for how they handled the search for Flight 370.
Airlines symbolize the nation and are ambassadors, says Chris Sloan, who runs the aviation history and news website Airchive.com. Airlines tend to reflect the values of their countries.
Even before this years two disasters, Malaysia Airlines had deep financial troubles, losing $370 million last year. That 6.2 percent net loss was among the worst in the global industry, according to industry newsletter
Airline Weekly. Most of the worlds other airlines had a great year, posting an average profit of 4.7 percent.
When an airline has the kind of issues that Malaysia has, it becomes a national shame, Sloan added. Americans have come to despise their own airlines, annoyed by invasive airport security, packed overhead bins and a lack of legroom. But in other parts of the world, the public takes great pride in national carriers.
They like to go to the airport and see these great, glistening modern jet airplanes with the flag of their country on it, says Robert Gandt, who spent 34 years as an airline pilot and has written 15 books including Skygods, an account of the demise of Pan Am.
The giant pre-war route maps of European national carriers like KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Air France were proclama-tions of those countries colonial might. The airlines often carried domineering names, like Imperial Airways, a precursor to British Airways.
What better description is there for its purpose? It was to help keep the empire united, says F. Robert van der Linden, chair and curator of air transportation at the Smithsonian Institutions National Air and Space Museum.

WINTHROP, Washington Pushed by howling, erratic winds, a massive wildfire in northwestern Washington state was growing rapidly and burning in new directions Saturday. Road closures and evacuations were changing regularly, as hot weather and winds with gusts up to 30 mph (48 kph) were pushing the fire over ridge tops and toward a cluster of small towns northeast of Seattle.

DENPASAR - Participation rate of voters in presidential elec-tions 2014 which was originally predicted to be high, in fact, it was lower. Even for Bali, the participa-tion rate of voters is still far from the target set by the Electoral Com-mission (KPU) of Bali. In reality, the results of plenary meeting on the vote recapitulation of presiden-tial election for provincial level at
the Electoral Commission of Bali on Friday (Jul 18) indicated that the abstention rate was still high enough reaching 27.57 percent or 824,901 people.
Thus, the participation rate was only 72.43 percent or 2,167,221 of the total voters or 2,992,122 people. Actually the Bali Electoral Com-mission targeted the participation rate of voter in the current presi-dential election reached 80 percent. In Bali, the participation rate of
voter in the presidential election was lower than legislative election on April 9, 2014. In the legislative election, the participation rate of voter reached 77.26 percent. Thus, the abstention rate was only 22.74 percent.
Regarding the low participa-tion rate of voter in the presi-dential election at this time, Chairman of the Bali Electoral Commission, Dewa Kade Wiarsa Raka Sandhi, did not dismiss it.
All this time, the public enthusi-asm is estimated to be high to use their right to vote in presidential election. But if the decrease in the participation rate is true, this will become our evaluation in the future, he said.
Further he said, the participa-tion rate of voter was influenced by many factors such as the process of organizing the election as well as the figure of presidential and vice presidential candidates, including
their vision and mission offered to the public. However, he rejected if the low participation rate of voter in the election happened because many voters did not get Form C-6 (invitation to vote). It did not hap-pen as getting no Form C-6. We have informed that without Form C-6 the voters could still use their right, including the use of identity card as long as being in appropri-ate with the address of voters, he affirmed. (wid)

NEW YORK - The publisher of the US business magazine Forbes said Friday a controlling stake in the group had been sold to a Hong Kong-based investment consortium.
Forbes Media will remain privately held and US-based, but a majority stake is being sold to the newly formed Integrated Whale Media Investments, based in Hong Kong.
The Forbes family will retain a significant ownership stake in the company under the plan and will continue to participate in its operations.
Steve Forbes, grandson of the companys founder, will maintain his role as chairman and editor-in-chief under the plan, which brings new capital into the pub-lishing group.
This is a major milestone for the company and our family, and were pleased to partner with a forward-looking investor group to further drive the evolution and growth of this exceptional company, Steve Forbes said in a statement.
Our partners respect our brand and values, and support our longstanding mission of championing entrepreneurship and free market capitalism through quality, independent business journalism. The best evi-dence of their commitment to what we stand for is their insistence on the continued involvement of the Forbes family, the current management and our highly talented editorial team.
The group is led by Integrated Asset Management (Asia) Limited founded by Tak Cheung Yam.
Another investor, Wayne Hsieh, is the co-founder of ASUSTeK Computer Inc., which makes the Asus brand of personal computers and electronics. He is based in Singapore.
The amount of the investment was not disclosed by Forbes, but the New York Times said it will be some $475 million.
Under the deal, Elevation Partners, which includes U2 singer Bono and which has had a minority stake in Forbes since 2006, will divest from the group.
The magazine, known for its rankings of wealthy Americans and global business leaders, was launched in 1917 by Scottish immigrant BC Forbes. It was run by his son Malcolm Forbes before being taken over by Steve Forbes, a onetime presidential candidate.
The magazine has some six million readers in the United States and international editions published in 21 languages, which brings the number of global readers to some 75 million.
The investor group will provide capital, as well as financial and operational expertise, and intends to lever-age its international relationships to strategically enlarge Forbes Medias reach on a global scale, according to the statement.
The group supports Forbes Medias ongoing trans-formation into a global media, branding and technology company.
According to the statement, Forbes Media is profit-able and, in 2013, achieved its best financial performance in the last six years.
The move comes amid turmoil in the print journalism segment, following the spinoff of Time Inc. -- which publishes Forbes rival Fortune -- by conglomerate Time Warner.
The ministers met in Sydney for the latest round of talks among the worlds leading economies, with Australias Trade Minister Andrew Robb saying all nations were still committed to the Bali agreement struck in December.
Robb said while some G20 members raised concerns about the deal, which streamlines the global flow of goods, every country there at the meeting did reaffirm their commitment to all nine (elements of the Bali agreement) being completed.
The Bali agreement by the World Trade Organisations 160 members saw them commit to lowering global trade barriers, with the intention of making it easier for developing countries to trade with the developed world in global markets.
French Trade Minister Fleur Pel-lerin said the G20 also discussed how free trade was key in driving economic growth amid fiscal consolidation and declining government revenues.
We focused a lot on free trade being one of the leverages that we can use to
boost growth in France ... investment and trade ... are definitely the main aspects of our growth agenda, Pellerin told AFP.
The crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 on Thursday had threatened to overshadow the summit, with both Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Robb meeting the Russian trade rep-resentative on the sidelines of the talks.
Russias role in the incident has come under scrutiny amid its possible links to the separatists controlling territory in eastern Ukraine where the aircraft had come down in.
We made requests for Russia to give its unequivocal commitment to facilitate these sorts of immediate objectives of safe access to the crash site and a binding United Nations Security Council for an independent investigation, Robb said.
Earlier Saturday, Robb warned that Canberra may consider trade sanctions against Moscow as a result of the crash, which killed 298 people, including 28 Australians, subject to how it responds, cooperates and is proactive in seeking answers.
Australia, along with several other countries, already has imposed sanctions and travel bans on some Russians and Ukrainians.
Senior ministers have refused on comment on whether Russian leader Vladimir Putin would be invited to the G20 leaders summit in Brisbane, Queenslands capital, in November.
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said: Lets wait and see what will happen, but I can give you this as-surance -- Australia is a self-respecting country.
Visitors to this country are people who have done the right thing by this country and lets hope thats exactly what we would find in the weeks and months ahead.
A small protest in Sydney near the talks called for Putin to be blocked from the leaders summit, with organiser Pete Shmigel from the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations calling it a defining moment for the international community.
Despite the talk of trade sanctions, Robb said the G20 ministers focused on their goal to boost economic growth by an additional 2.0 percent over the next five years -- an agreement the countries finance ministers signed up to at a meet-ing in February.

DENPASAR - Entering the week before the Eid, the homecoming activities looked very busy on Saturday (Jul 19). Jembrana Police have begun to secure the path along 74 kilometers on the Denpasar-Gilimanuk path from Pengeragoan to Gilimanuk Harbor. At least, 15 monitoring posts had begun to be built along the path. Besides,
police also alerted 650 personnel for homecoming and backflow period. Especially at Gilimanuk Harbor, a total of 221 personnel were stationed, while the remaining personnel were placed at the posts along the route.
Chief of Jembrana Police, Harry Haryadi, told reporters that a num-ber of facilities and infrastructure for the monitoring of homecoming traffic had begun to be prepared and
would operate starting on Monday (Jul 21).
Earlier on Friday, a number of drums were mounted on the road to Gilimanuk Harbor as road divider. At least 300 drums were installed along 3 kilometers led by the Unit Chief of Jembrana Police Traffic Affairs, Gede Su-madra Kerthiawan. Afterwards, the drums were then tied and connected with rope as a path
separator. Other than 15 monitor-ing posts, his party also put up five security posts and a service post at Gilimanuk Harbor.
Meanwhile, the surge of passen-gers at the Gilimanuk Harbor had occurred since last Saturday. The exit homecomers were dominated by motorcyclists. As estimation of the crossing authority (ASDP), on entering one week before the Eid, the traffic had increased 50 percent
compared to normal days.Operations Manager of the ASDP
of Gilimanuk Harbor, Wahyudi Su-sianto, said the ASDP predicted the surge of homecoming traffic started to happen on Monday (Jul 21), while the peak of the passengers would happen three days before the Eid. The ASDP authority of Ketapang-Gilimanuk also prepared additional vessel starting on Mon-day (Jul 21). (kmb26)
The regent instantly checked the latest condition of the vessel after the fire on Thursday night
(Jul 17). However, the regent asked the evacuation process to be done after ascertaining if the condition of vessel was really safe as much oil remained aboard. More-over, smokes were still puffing, indicating if the fire had not fully gone out. In addition, the regent also asked the management of the vessel to resolve all the problems related to passengers as a form of responsibility.
Meanwhile, Chief of Klung-kung Police, Ni Wayan Sri Yudatni Wirawati, said on Saturday (Jul 19) the integrated team of subdistrict police, marine police and military regional command was on guard at the site. Chief of county police ad-vised the people not to approach the vessel for a while because the fire did not completely extinguish.
Moreover, there were still harm-ful substances aboard. In addition, her ranks with the Padangbai Har-bor Marine Police and Directorate of Marine Police had begun to make investigation by examining various parties to obtain information start-ing from the survivors, the vessel captain to harbormaster that were responsible for the safety of the crossing. It was intended to know about the accident occurred, the origin of the fire until causing a fire on the vessel.
If the situation aboard had been considered safe, where the fire had totally gone out and smokes no longer puffed, the team of Bali
Police would soon come down to location. The team included marine police and central forensic laboratory as technical team would investigate the cause of fire. When the cause had been known, then it was believed there was no element of intent, police would issue a state-ment. It was an attempt to claim the insurance of the company.
It will take a long time, he said. Meanwhile, the vessel running aground drew the attention of sur-rounding people. Although people were encouraged not to approach, they did not obey it. At the location, the smoke was still visible to puff.
Meanwhile, the vessel compart-ment continued to exude the odor. Many people were surprised to see the vessel running aground. In fact, the vessel came earlier than the completion of the fish landing center (PPI) of Kusamba, said one of the residents after seeing the con-dition of the PPI having destroyed and been buried in coastal sand. The strand of shipwreck caused the local community to be in uproar. Even, three units of fire trucks had been sent to location on Friday night. When stranded, the shipwreck was still on fire.
The Fire Brigade Section Head of Klungkung Public Works, Wayan Toya, said last Saturday that his party mobilized all the forces to the scene on Friday night. In addition, we were also assisted by Fire Bri-gade of Gianyar, he said. The fire aboard could be extinguished in part after being sprayed for five hours from 7:00 p.m. until 00:00 p.m.
To extinguish the fire, the fire brigade required more than 20 tanks of water for each truck. Besides, the team was also assisted by a unit of tank truck from the Sanitation and Landscape Agency for water sup-ply, he added.

Head of Ferriage of Transporta-tion, Communication and Informa-tion Office of Klungkung District I
Dewa Gede Sutarta had confirmed on Friday that all the passengers of Gelis Rauh had been rescued. All of them have been saved, he said.
The passengers were evacuated to Padangbai Harbor, Karangasem District, despite the location of the accident being much closer to Nusa Penida, Klungkung District.
Eight boats had assisted in the rescue mission and evacuation process. One of the boats was KMP Nusa Jaya Abadi of Klungkung Administration, which had set sail from Padangbai-Nusa Penida.
The Nusa Jaya Abadi vessel had managed to evacuate 15 passengers,

AntaraJAKARTA - There were 12 Indonesians among 298 pas-
sengers, who boarded flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur that crashed in Ukraine on Thursday, Malaysia Airlines has confirmed.
There were several passengers from other nationalities such as 192 Dutch nationals, included one US-Dutch citizen, the airlines stated in the press release on Saturday.
Besides, there were also 15 airplane crew and two babies along with 44 Malaysian nationals who died in the crash. Additionally, there were 27 Australians, ten British nationals, four Germans and four Belgians, apart from three Filipinos, a Canadian and a New Zealander among those who perished on flight MH17.
Malaysia Airlines said they have coordinated with several embassies to communicate the latest information to the pas-sengers families.
The airways will also coordinate with the emergency re-sponse team and several authorities to provide the required services to the families.
They also stated their concern for the families regarding the incident that claimed 298 lives.
The airlines has also provided a hotline for the families of victims to get information. These are +603 7884 1234 for Ma-laysia area and +31703487770 for the Netherlands.
Malaysia Airlines said flight MH17 that was allegedly shot down in Ukrainian air space, had a safe route as stated by In-ternational Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
The International Air Transportation Association said the air zone that was crossed by the flight was not a banned cruise flight route.
After the incident, however, all routes of Malaysia Airlines will avoid the usual route and take alternative routes.
Both candidates declared victory at the July 9 poll after a bitterly fought campaign in the worlds third-biggest democracy, however reliable pollsters predict Widodo will win by several points when the lengthy vote-counting process is completed.
The election was the tightest and most divisive in Indonesia since the downfall of dictator Suharto in 1998, and has emerged as the biggest test yet for the young democracy.
Weve had a very polarised elec-tion, one which is very close, which is something that we have not really had before, said veteran Indonesia analyst Kevin Evans.
Presidential poll results to announce on July 22Agence France-Presse
JAKARTA - Jakarta governor Joko Widodo is expected to be declared the winner of Indo-nesias disputed presidential election this week but his rival, ex-general Prabowo Subianto, is likely to mount a legal challenge that will prolong the political deadlock.
Known by his nickname Jokowi, the Jakarta governor is the first serious presidential contender in the worlds most populous Muslim-majority nation without links to the autocratic past and is from a new breed of up and coming politicians.
In contrast, Prabowo was the head of the armys special forces in the Suharto era, has been dogged by allegations of human rights abuses and used to be married to one of the dictators daughters.
The results are expected on Tuesday after some 130 million ballots are counted by hand across the archipelago of more than 17,000
islands, that stretches from moun-tainous Papua in the east to jungle-clad Sumatra in the west.
Tensions have escalated dramati-cally in the past two weeks as both sides accused the other of seeking to rig the outcome, and police will be out in force around the country when the final results are released.
President Susilo Bambang Yud-hoyono has urged the candidates to keep their supporters off the streets amid fears of unrest, 16 years after thousands were killed when violence swept the country as three decades of authoritarian rule came to a chaotic end.
Investors in Southeast Asias top economy are hoping that Widodo, seen as a clean leader in one of the worlds most corrupt countries and likely to enact much-needed reforms, emerges the winner.
Observers say there is still a small chance of Prabowo being declared the winner, although only if his team engaged in widespread vote-rigging.
However, the ex-general insists he is in the lead and it is Widodos side, not his, that is seeking to tam-per with the votes.
The election campaign was the dirtiest in Indonesias short demo-cratic history, and saw Widodos once-huge lead dwindle to single dig-its after a flood of negative attacks.
However on election day, poll-sters with a track record of accurate-ly predicting Indonesian election outcomes gave Widodo a lead of between two and seven percentage
points, and official results are ex-pected to confirm his victory.
Several less well-known survey institutes called a win for Prabowo but doubts have been raised about their re-sults. Two of them were thrown out of the pollsters industry body last week for refusing to undergo an audit.
Even if Widodo is declared the winner, the presidential race is unlikely to be over, as Prabowo is almost certain to challenge the results in the Constitutional Court, claiming Widodos side engaged in vote-tampering.
The court has until late August to issue a ruling.
There are concerns about the in-stitutions impartiality after its former chief justice was jailed for life last month for corruption, although ana-lysts believe the court will be at pains to appear clean following the scandal and is likely to side with Widodo.

There was growing concern about the whereabouts of some of the bodies which had been removed from the crash site, while others were left lying in field in the rural part of eastern Ukraine where the Boeing 777 jet was brought to ground.
British Prime Minister David Cameron called for tougher Euro-pean action against Moscow if Putin did not change tack.
If President Putin does not change his approach on Ukraine, then Europe and the West must fundamentally change our approach to Russia, he said, writing in the Sunday Times newspaper.
Russia can use this moment to find a path out of this festering, dangerous crisis. I hope it will do so. But if that does not happen then we must respond robustly,
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte -- his nation mourning the loss of 192 compatriots -- said he had called on Putin during a very intense conversation to take responsibility for a credible investigation.
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the crash site was absolutely chaotic as he sought to recover 28 bodies of his com-patriots killed in the disaster.
My fear is that Russia will say the right thing, but that on the ground interference with the site, interference with investigators, interference with the dignified treatment of bodies will continue, he said.
International monitors were met on Saturday by Kalashnikov-wielding militias who allowed them access to only the outskirts of the field -- its swaying sunflowers hiding dismembered remains of charred and decom-posing bodies of victims whose lives were cut short on Thursday.
The Ukrainian government issued a furious statement declaring that terrorists with the support of Russia are trying to destroy proof of this international crime.
Missing black boxesMalaysias transport minister expressed alarm before boarding
a flight to Kiev over indications that vital evidence has not been preserved in place.
One of the crucial questions is the fate of the black boxes, said Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe spokesman Michael Bociurkiw.
The head of the self-proclaimed Donetsk Peoples Republic, into whose airspace the doomed jet strayed to avoid bad weather, said his men had never recovered the data recorders or tampered with evidence.
The diplomatic wrangling was accompanied by uninterrupted fighting across Ukraines eastern rustbelt -- a Russian-speaking region of seven million people who largely view the more nation-alistic west of the splintered country with mistrust.
Putin rejects all charges of providing either funding or military sup-port to the insurgents who in April seized towns in the region demanding independence after a pro-Western government took power in Kiev.
Their move came just two weeks after Russia -- stunned by the removal of pro-Kremlin president Viktor Yanukovych, annexed heavily-Russified Crimea.
Ukrainian troops pressed on with an offensive against the reb-els, reporting they had taken full control of the main airport of the neighbouring separatist stronghold of Lugansk and launching all-out offensives against two nearby towns.
Government troops said they had also established full control of Do-netsk airport for the first time since it was seized at the end of May. Kiev said the latest clashes killed five soldiers and wounded another 20.
US President Barack Obama and major world leaders now agree that the Malaysia Airlines jet was blown out of the sky at 33,000 feet (10,000 metres) by a sophisticated surface-to-air missile fired from rebel-controlled territory.
Kiev has gone a step further by accusing militias of using a Russian-supplied Buk system to down the jet after confusing it with a Ukrainian military transporter.
Ukraine has released recordings of what it said was an intercepted call between an insurgent commander and a Russian intelligence officer as they realised they had shot down a passenger jet.
But Putin has blamed the tragedy on Kievs three-month military operation.
The planes downing came less than a day after the United States unleashed punishing sanctions against some of Russias most impor-tant energy and military firms -- most of them with links to Putin -- and urged more hesitant European leaders to follow suit.
The European Union -- many of its member states dependent on Russian gas -- took the far less punitive step on Friday of curbing some future investments in Russia and leaving the option open for broader sanctions.
Since the start of Israel-Hamas fighting almost two weeks ago, 348 Palestinians were killed and 2,700 wounded in Israeli air and artillery strikes, according to Palestinian health officials. One-fourth of the deaths were reported since the start of the ground offensive late Thursday, the officials said. Five Israelis three soldiers and two civilians have also been killed and doz-ens wounded as rockets continue to rain down on Israel.
As fighting raged, U.N. chief Ban Ki-moon headed to Qatar on Sunday as part of renewed cease-fire efforts. Hamas last week rejected an Egyptian call to both sides to halt hostilities, saying it first wants guarantees that Israel and Egypt will signifi-
cantly ease their border blockade of Gaza. Israels military said early Sunday that it has widened its ground offensive by sending more troops into Gaza. Over the weekend, Israeli troops demol-ished more than a dozen tunnels that were used by Hamas to sneak into Israel and carry out attacks on soldiers and civilians, the army said.
Israeli soldiers uncovered 34 shafts leading into about a dozen underground tunnels, some as deep as 30 meters (yards), the military said. Israel views the tunnels as a strategic threat, and demolishing them is a high pri-ority in their campaign. Footage released by the Israeli military showed tunnels being demol-ished by army excavators and
other equipment on the ground and by airstrikes from above.
Palestinian gunmen disguised in Israeli uniforms managed to infiltrate Israel from Gaza using another tunnel and on Saturday killed two Israeli soldiers and in-jured several others, the military said. At least one Palestinian was killed in the clash. Hamas said 12 of its fighters participated in the attack and that the group took some of the soldiers weapons back to their hideouts.
In two other confrontations, Palestinian gunmen jumped out of tunnels and shot at soldiers who returned fire. Two of the gunmen were killed. Another militant died when the explosive vest he was wearing went off, the military said.

RISOUL, France Panting hard with his jersey unzipped and wide open in the heat, Polish rider Rafal Majka sped to a solo breakaway victory on Stage 14 as the Tour de France wrapped up its foray in the Alps on Saturday.
The two stages were expected to shake up the standings, but Vincenzo Nibali was not only still wearing the yellow jersey, he was farther out front.
In a flip of their finishes a day earlier in the races entree to the Alps when Nibali won, the Pole and the Italian crossed one-two after the 177-kilometer (110-mile) ride over the 2,360-meter (7,742-foot) Izoard pass the races highest point and a final ascent up to Risoul ski station.
Majkas victory was the first on this Tour by his Tinkoff-Saxo Bank team, which lost main leader Alberto Contador when he crashed
out injured on Stage 10.Majka was not a threat to Nibali:
He began the day 97 minutes behind the race leader, who has carried out a methodical, chipping-away strategy against his biggest challengers for the yellow jersey.
I am really very happy, Majka, who was sixth in the Giro dItalia this year, said of his first profes-sional victory after chucking his stage winners bouquet to the crowd. He became only the second Polish rider to win a Tour stage, after Ze-non Jaskula in 1993. I am a little tired, but ... I had a calm first week to help Alberto. It broke my heart to see him leave.
Team owner Oleg Tinkov, a Rus-sian businessman, choked up, wiped his nose, and put on sunglasses.
We lost Alberto, we had to win, he said through a translator on French TV. Rafal is a marvelous young rider. We will come back to try to win the Tour one day.
Majka said he did not believe
speculation that Tinkoff-Saxo Bank selected him among its nine Tour riders only after the team suspended Czech rider Roman Kreuziger. Just days before announcing its Tour ros-ter last month, the team suspended Kreuziger from competing any more this year because of anomalies in his biological passport, which cycling officials use to fight doping. He has denied any wrongdoing.
Majka, who said he was tired after the strong Giro performance, said he was given assurances by team managers that youll do the Tour, but youll take it easy in the first week, he said. Its also wrong to think that Im doing the Tour be-cause Roman Kreuziger isnt. Had he been able to start, we would have both been part of the team.
Victor Petri, a team spokesman, confirmed Majka was in conten-tion for a roster spot before the Kreuziger case. The Pole was out front early in the stage, joining a 17-rider breakaway behind Spains Joaquim Rodriguez, the Tours best climber. They cleared the first big climb, the Lauteret pass, with about a five-minute lead. By the top of the Izoard, they had thinned to 10. As the groupetto splintered on the last climb, and Nibali and the peloton closed in, Majka covered the last eight kilometers alone.
Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado will stay with Lotus in 2015, despite the Formula One team suffering a terrible first half of the season, team principal Gerard Lopez said on Saturday.
Maldonado has yet to score a point this season as Lotus struggle with the new technical changes.
I can confirm 50 percent of our driver line-up for 2015 as Pastor is with us for next year, said Lopez on the Lotus F1 website (www.lotusf1team.com). Despite the difficul-ties weve had so far this season, he recognises our true potential as a team and we recognise his true potential as a driver. We will achieve great things together.
Maldonado, 29, had been with Williams for three years when he switched to Lotus at the end of the 2013 season.
Ironically, Williams are one of the success stories of this season, in fourth place in the constructors championship table behind runaway leaders Mercedes with 103 points, while Lotus have a meagre eight points and lie eighth of the 11 teams racing.
In qualifying for Sundays German Grand prix at Hockenheim, Maldonado failed to make it out of the first session and will start 19th.

Tottenham began its preseason North America tour facing former striker Clint Dempsey and his new club. Dempsey left Tottenham to sign with the Sounders last August.
Pochettino left Southampton in May to replace Tim Sherwood, who was fired on May 13 after just five months on the job following Tottenhams sixth-place league finish.
I want to congratulate our players because the conditions to play were very difficult 1 p.m. and warm and a different field, Ponchettino said. And we play a very good team.

BUENOS AIRES - With a September friendly looming for Argentina against their World Cup final conquerors Germany, coach Alejandro Sa-bella is aware of the urgency of a decision on his future.
Sabella, whose side lost 1-0 after extra time to Germany in the Maracana final a week ago, told reporters on Friday he would be mulling over his future this weekend and then arrange a Wednesday meeting with Argentine FA chief Julio Grondona.
I know there are friendlies scheduled. In the middle of the week Ill talk with Julio, Sabella said. Its a situation that cant wait much, this weekend Ill think about it and Ill call Julio to have a meeting with him... I have to feel capable of doing (the job), the 59-year-old said.
Argentina play Germany in Duesseldorf on Sept. 3 in a match that will serve as a warm-up for the world champions opening Euro 2016 quali-fier against Scotland four days later. Argentina also face Brazil and Hong Kong in friendlies in October.
Argentinas World Cup squad have said they want Sabella to stay at the helm and prepare the team for the Copa America in Chile next year. That makes me proud but my decision doesnt depend on that... Its down to whether I feel strong enough to give 100 percent, he said.
If I cant give the players what I ask of them, it wouldnt be honest. Sabella said he was not analysing alterative job offers. If I leave the national team it wont be to work elsewhere, it will be to rest.
He added he believed Argentina played their best match of the tourna-ment in the final.
I think that, taking into account who our opponents were, it was our best match at the World Cup. It was very even with the clearest chances for us. We should have won it in 90 minutes, then it got harder physi-cally, he said.
With Germany its hard to go blow for blow because, like great boxers, they have an extraordinary punch.
Chelseas purchase of Brazilian defender Filipe Luis from Atletico Madrid on Friday was the English Premier League clubs final act of the transfer window, manager Jose Mourinho said.
The Blues, who finished third last season, have spent around 80 million pounds ($136 million) in the close season on Luis, striker Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Hajduk Split midfielder Mario Pasalic.
We finished the market to-day, Mourinho told BT Sport. The transfer market closes 31
August and we close on July 19. My club did a fantastic job, not just because of what we bought, but because we did it in almost record time.
The club did fantastic, we knew the targets, we knew the players and the club attacked them and their clubs at a very early stage.
Chelsea had also been linked with a move for Real Madrids German World Cup-winning mid-fielder Sami Khedira but Mourin-ho said he was pleased with the squad he had at his disposal.
We got exactly what we need and what we want. The squad is
one which I like very much and I look forward to starting the sea-son, the former Real boss said.
The purchase of former Arsenal captain Fabregas was a particular coup but Mourinho said the Span-iard took little convincing and had not been considering a return to the Gunners.
I spoke with him for 20 min-utes. I think he really wanted to come to us, the 51-year-old said.
Arsenal had an option where they could interfere, but I think he was not open to that. He was very much in our direction, so it was an easy job for me.

The fee was undisclosed but the club said on their website (www.wba.co.uk) that it exceeds the amount they paid Sunderland for Stephane Sessegnon last September.

ment flagged Brown up as the man at the top of their wish list.
It is a fantastic signing because of the quality and the potential of the player. I can see that he really wants to be here and that he really wants to be playing in the Premier League.

Tottenham Hotspurs Lewis Holtby (14) is tackled by Seattle Sounders DeAndre Yedlin during the first half of a friendly soc-cer match in Seattle, Saturday, July 19, 2014.
Tottenham, Seattle play entertaining 3-3 drawAssociated Press Writer
SEATTLE Osvaldo Alon-so scored early in the second half as the Seattle Sounders drew 3-3 with Premier League side Tottenham in a friendly Saturday, the first match for new Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino.
2-0 and 4-2 to Chelsea in 2009 and 2012 and was routed 7-0 by Manchester United in 2011.
When we come on these tours we sometimes dont know what to expect, Friedel said. One thing was for certain when we knew we were going to expect a good atmo-
sphere and playing against the best team in the MLS right now.
Lewis Holtby scored from a header in the 11th minute off a pass from Harry Kane. Gonzalo Pinedas chipped penalty kick beat Friedel in the 33rd minute to pull Seattle level after defender
Chad Marshall was taken down in the penalty area on a corner kick.
Tottenham played without goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, midfield-ers Paulinho, Mousa Dembele and Nacer Chadli, and defender Jan Vertonghen, who have been
given a break after the World Cup. Gylfi Sigurdsson was dropped from the starting lineup shortly before kickoff.
Weve been working extremely hard. Preseason has been very de-manding under the new boss and I think that showed, Friedel said.
