, June 12 (Xinhua) -- Argentina named Jorge Faurie as its new minister of foreign affairs on Monday, as he pledged to provide "continuity" in his management of the role.
Faurie, who had been ambassador to France, was sworn in at the presidential palace by President Mauricio Macri, in presence of Susana Malcorra who stepped down from the role in May for personal reasons.
"We have much to contribute to the world air max sale online

According to the president, Faurie will have "a task doubly or triply more complicated since he will not only replace a minister like Malcorra, but we are also at a time when we will need concrete successes...such as the integration with the OECD and Mercosur and negotiations with the EU" for a free-trade agreement.
Speaking to journalists, Faurie said he would seek to provide "continuity" to the work done by Malcorra.
Faurie has been one of Argentina's leading diplomatic figures since first becoming an ambassador in 1998. Besides Spanish, Faurie speaks English nike air max 2018 sale outlet

, July 4 (Xinhua) -- In medieval England it was one of the top combat sports as knights on horseback competed against each other in jousting contests.
New research published by English Heritage and the University of Bath has revealed that jousters needed the fitness of professional footballers, top tennis players and Formula 1 drivers.
A modern day jouster was put through his paces at the University of Bath with results showing his sport makes him the ultimate all-round athlete.
English Heritage is currently campaigning to make jousting an Olympic sport, with a petition already signed by thousands of supporters.
With a new season of jousting tournaments starting later this week, English Heritage sent jouster Roy Murray to the university to test his strength.
Murray performed a range of physiological assessments commonly used to measure today's Olympic athletes.
"The results confirmed the fitness levels and strength demanded by the sport of jousting are comparable to some of today's most grueling sports and makes a jouster the ultimate all-round athlete," said a spokesman for English Heritage.
Jonathan Robinson air max 2017 sale outlet
, sport scientist at the University of Bath, led the tests and said he was impressed by the results.
"What's particularly remarkable is the high standards of fitness demonstrated across a wide range of areas. It is clear that jousters must train very hard in various different ways to maintain this fitness in order to compete in such a physically demanding sport," said Robinson.
The 33-year-old's score showed how lean and muscular jousters need to be to cope with the physical demands of the sport and the nature of the equipment associated with it, including wearing heavy suits of armor and carrying heavy lances.
On core stability and balance Murray's results proved better than some professional swimmers and his alignment and balance were comparable with leading acrobats.
"As in the Middle Ages, today's jousters need to be incredibly strong to carry their 45 kg weight of armor and pilot over half a tonne of galloping horse. A strong core and an acute sense of balance are crucial in order to ride straight and stay upright during a joust air max sale outlet
, all while carrying a 3m long wooden lance and absorbing the sideways impact of a blow from an opponent's lance," said English Heritage.
English Heritage's jousting expert Dominic Sewell said: "While modern lifestyles are very different, to joust properly in the 21st century requires the same dedication. The knights that you'll see at English Heritage jousts are among the best in the country and indeed the world."
Throughout this summer as part of its Medieval Knights Season, English Heritage is hosting a series of jousts at its castles.
The first event takes place on July 8 and 9 at Eltham Palace and Gardens in London, with further jousts in July and August at locations in Suffolk nike air max 2018 sale clearance
