VALLETTA [url=http://www.teamgoldenknightsshop.com/James-Neal-Jersey/]Authentic James Neal Jersey[/url] , June 12 (Xinhua) -- Luke and Elena were Malta's most popular baby names in 2014, according to a report published on Friday by the archipelago's national statistics office.


A total of 4,277 live births were registered last year at the public registry in the island country, up by 4.9 percent from 2013. Luke (and its variants) was the most popular name given to baby boys last year, taking up to 4.3 percent.


The names Matthew and Jacob, including their variants, ranked as the second and third most popular names for the second consecutive year.


Elena (including Elenia, Helena and Ella) was the most popular name given to baby girls during 2014. The name Julia, including its variants, placed second.


The report also mentioned some interesting trends. The predominance of biblical names or saints was once again apparent in the names given by parents to newborns. Some parents were also influenced by TV drama, pop culture and sports when naming babies.

BEIJING, Feb. 10 (Xinhua) -- Beijing is still hopeful of getting into the playoffs as the three-time champion beat Jilin 102-78 in the 34th round of the 2016-2017 Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) league action on Friday.


Two points in 24 minutes from Beijing's core star Stephon Marbury couldn't stop the former powerhouse' victory as four Beijing players reached double figures in the game.


Jilin, who was out of playoffs for sure, gained only nine points in the first quarter and failed to find a way to get nearer.


In addition to Beijing, the defending champion Sichuan edged Qingdao 101-100, still sharing the possibility for playoff position.


Leaders Shanghai beat Shandong 94-78, as Shanghai's Jimmer Fredette got the game-high 28 points and seven rebounds, and Guerschon Yabusele had 23 points and 12 rebounds. The vital defeat narrowed the gap between Shandong and the followers Beijing and Sichuan.


With four rounds to go, Shandong, Beijing, Sichuan and Jiangsu fought for the last two playoff berths theoretically.


Elsewhere on Friday, Xinjiang hammered Shanxi 129-94, Shenzhen beat Aolong 121-103, Jiangsu won over Tongxi 111-104, powerhouse Guangzhou defeated Zhejiang 114-112, Tianjin overpowered Liaoning 115-109, Fujian beat Bayi 108-105, and Guangdong tamed Guangsha 108-103.

MOSCOW, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- Russia has opened an alternative event for national Paralympians banned from the Paralympic Games in Brazil's Rio de Janeiro, the Russian news agency TASS reported Wednesday.


"The Paralympic sports in Russia will continue receiving support, attention and care on behalf of the authorities," Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said at an official opening ceremony of the alternative games organized by the Russian authorities outside Moscow.


According to the agency, 263 athletes are taking part in the event, competing in 18 sports.


"We are all sending our sincere greetings to the Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro since we are all brothers and sisters and in the Paralympic family and wish that the Games there will be good," the RPC (Russian Paralympic Committee) president Vladimir Lukin was quoted as saying.


On August 7, the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) decided to bar the whole Russian Paralympic team from taking part in the 2016 Summer Paralympics.


Russian President Vladimir Putin announced last week that Russia would organize alternative competitive events on Sept. 8-9, for the barred Russian Paralympic team and the awards for the Paralympians would be equal to those promised at the 2016 Rio Games. Enditem

It has to be emphasized first of all that a bobblehead has to represent a person or character of a certain organization. Thus, if you are looking for a sport bobblehead figure to have mass produced, that sport bobblehead has to have some kind of significance to you and to anyone who will be the recipient.

Take, for instance, a sport bobblehead modeled after Hideki Matsui (a baseball player with the New York Yankees) ? the value of the official sport bobblehead is that it comes as a Limited Edition product, meaning there are only a few of them made at one time so that the uniqueness and exclusivity of the product is retained. A sport bobblehead made by the millions has less uniqueness and maybe no exclusivity compared to a sport bobblehead under a Limited Edition manufacturing license.

This is where the concept of a collectible sport bobblehead comes in. A sport bobblehead that is made in a limited volume (like, say 500 items only for that type of bobblehead) is deemed more collectible (or has a higher value as a collectible) compared to a sport bobblehead that has been made by the millions. Even if the quality of manufacture is comparable or even exactly the same, it is the uniqueness and exclusivity of the sport bobblehead that will determine if it is a true collectible or not. And the value of a collectible lies with the perception of a person doing the collecting. A person who values one sport bobblehead of Michael Jordan will pay a good price for it even if that edition was made by the millions simply because the collector thinks that sport bobblehead has a good value for him.

Does a sport bobblehead have to be highly expensive to be highly valued? Not at the start, no. For instance, if you bought your Michael Jordan sport bobblehead back in year 1990 when it was priced at $19.00 but nowadays (due to the scarcity of Michael Jordan sport bobbleheads) is priced at $100 each, you may observe that the rise in financial value of your bobblehead was due to the lower supply at present, the rise in perceived value of that bobblehead version among collectors, and the fact that Michael Jordan is no longer as active a player as he used to be. There is a saying that for memorabilia of celebrities to go up in value, it helps if th.
