Police said a 61-year-old man had been arrested over the assaults, which the office of Hong Kong leader Leung Chun-ying condemned as a "savage act". Protest leaders offered few insights into how they would proceed now the vote has been scrapped. "At this stage of the movement every one of us is exploring which way to go," Benny Tai said.

A retreat was the only option that was ruled out, with student activist Joshua Wong saying it was "absolutely not the time" to quit the streets. Surya Deva, a law professor at City University of Hong Kong, njtrainersuk said Sunday's events showed the leadership was battling a "lack of clarity". "It's the disadvantage any decentralised movement faces," Deva told AFP, adding that it needed to come up with a longer-term civil disobedience strategy. Demonstrators had mixed views on the failed vote. "I'm a bit disappointed," said Lily Su, an account executive at a technology firm. "We're doing everything we can to try to get

Let’s pretend, for a moment, that Kobe Bryant is some wonderful, cheerful, galoot of a man. That he is super swell to work with, and that his on-record tough guy musings spat out in an expletive-laden style that reminds of a 11-year-old nike air max 1 just realized he could use blue words is just a show for the media. Let’s pretend that, behind the scenes, Kobe Bryant is the ideal teammate, and that he’s promised many things to prospective Los Angeles Lakers teammates through the years.

Promised that the storied air max trainers will be theirs, all theirs, once Bryant retires and the salary cap shoots way up upon his retirement. Assured that he’d nike air max give up shots and the ball in order to develop a more harmonious partnership with a free agent partner. Or partners.

The concept of the front room is simple: You sit down and waiters start bringing out food, a dim-sum-style of dining evocative of San Francisco’s State Bird Provisions or New York’s Ma Peche. Like what you see? Order it. The duck croquettes, crispy on the outside and as pillowy as a meatball within, are essentially the red meat equivalents of a chicken McNugget. Don’t like what you see? Order it anyway — the seafood-heavy fare really can’t be faulted. And to round out the meal a printed menu offers more substantial dishes and well-priced cured meats — Iberico is just $6! Then there’s Adler, who’ll want to pour you a copper-colored Amontillado.

"The beautiful thing about this sherry" he says, "is that it tastes of the sea," a confusing statement for a beverage that’s not a dirty martini. Trust him. The fortified wine smells of burnt sugar and looks like a glass of dessert, though it’s dry on the palate, with a concentrated nuttiness to match the acorn aromas of good Iberico. Then it happens. That wave of salinity hits. It's a good reminder that the power of persuasion, when applied smartly, can focus the diner on what’s important in a wine.
