LONDON -- Qatars World Cup sites will be inspected from next year by an international trade union which wants the deaths of all workers assessed by external coroners and for the causes to be published. Wholesale Nike Air Jordan .Qatar has come under fierce criticism over living and working conditions for workers since being awarded the 2022 World Cup in a contentious vote six years ago.Qatar says only four stadium workers have died, with just one fatality the result of a work-related accident after a Nepali was hit by a water truck last month. The Building and Wood Workers International, which will conduct labor and accommodation inspections with tournament organizers from January, wants more information published about deaths in the low-paid, migrant workforce.We have to know the cause, the actual medical legal cause, BWI general secretary Ambet Yuson told The Associated Press after signing the partnership with Qatar on Tuesday.Yuson wants non-Qatari coroners to examine the bodies of workers and for death certificates to be published.We will propose this in the working group, Yuson said. We really want to know what happened. We want to verify and investigate. They are committed to be open to us.World Cup workers are covered by regulations that are more rigorous than the national laws, detailing how contractors must ethically recruit, promptly pay, and decently house them. But the BWI is concerned that the regulations only cover workers directly employed by the companies handed World Cup contracts, overlooking subcontractors who could be forced to live in cramped conditions.We have to look through the whole supply chain, through the subcontracting system, Yuson said. There have already been reports that the big multinational construction companies have good facilities.Now we are interested in looking at the subcontractors. There is a possibility that many subcontractors are not complying. This is what we want to look at seriously -- that the standards are applying not just to the main contractors but to all the level of subcontractors.World Cup organizers said Tuesday that 36,000 people will be employed on its projects in the next year as eight stadiums are built.Our inspection and auditing processes will need to be bolstered to ensure we continue to deliver sustainable and meaningful progress for our workers, organizing committee secretary general Hassan Al Thawadi said in a statement. While we have made a number of improvements in the last two years, from health and safety to accommodation standards, we recognize there is still work to be done.

Cheap Air Jordans .H. -- Matt Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. SEATTLE -- After holding off a late comeback attempt, the Seattle Mariners were simply happy to have stopped their five-game losing streak.Ketel Marte had two singles and three RBI in a nine-run second inning, and Seattle beat the Los Angeles Angels 11-8 on Friday night.Its tremendous, said Mariners center fielder Leonys Martin, who walked twice and scored two runs in the second. Nine runs in one inning, its going to give you a lot of confidence. Were fighting, man. Were still alive. Keep fighting. Thats what were going to do. Fight every single game.Even after building a seven-run lead, the Mariners had a hard time putting this one away. Los Angeles scored four times in the ninth before Edwin Diaz retired star slugger Mike Trout with two on for his 12th save.We couldnt quite put the nail in the coffin, Seattle manager Scott Servais said. But we got the win. We needed a win and well build on that one.Nelson Cruz hit his 33rd homer in the eighth for the Mariners, who remained four games behind Baltimore and Detroit for the final AL playoff spot.Trout said he was fine before the game, two days after he was involved in a multi-vehicle accident on a Los Angeles freeway. He hit a three-run homer his first time up and Jefry Marte added a solo shot for the Angels, giving Brett Oberholtzer (1-1) a 4-0 lead before he took the mound.Oberholtzer allowed Guillermo Heredias RBI double in the bottom of the first, then gave up two singles and walked two batters before being pulled in the second without getting an out.Obviously, its not the start we were looking for or he was looking for, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said.Jhoulys Chacin came on with the bases loaded and promptly walked in a run. The first out of the inning came when Heredia grounded into a fielders choice with the bases loaded, driving in a run. Seattle got a second run on the play on second baseman Gregorio Petits throwing error, giving the Mariners a 5-4 lead.The scoring didnt end there. Five runs in the inning came with two outs, and the bottom of Seattles order did the most damage -- the last four hitters in the lineup all reached base twice in the inning.Marte, batting ninth, lled the way and No. Cheap Air Jordan Authentic. 6 hitter Dae-Ho Lee added two singles and two RBI. The Mariners sent 14 batters to the plate, getting six hits -- all singles -- and five walks.The nine runs equaled Seattles season high for one inning. The Mariners also scored nine times in the seventh inning of a 16-13 win at San Diego on June 2.Ariel Miranda (2-1) had a rough start for Seattle, falling behind 3-0 after three batters. A walk and a single led to Trouts 26th home run before Marte connected with two outs.Miranda, however, recovered to pitch six innings without allowing another run.He hung in there, Servais said. If youd have told me after the first inning we were going to get six out of him, I probably wouldnt have bought into that one.FIRST TIME OUTJuan Graterol hit a run-scoring double in his first major league at-bat as part of the Angels ninth-inning rally. Graterol was called up earlier in the year but did not appear in a game before being sent back down. This was his first big league game after 11 years in the minors. Hes worked so hard to get here, Scioscia said. The guys in the dugout felt great for him.ROSTER MOVESBoth teams took advantage of Septembers expanded rosters and added players. The Angels recalled Graterol and LHP Cody Ege, and selected the contract of RHP Andrew Bailey from Triple-A Salt Lake. They also activated 3B Yunel Escobar from the 7-day concussion disabled list.Seattle added OF Ben Gamel, acquired from the Yankees in a trade Wednesday, to the major league roster and recalled C Jesus Sucre from Triple-A Tacoma. Gamel started in right field and batted leadoff.TROUTS CRASHBefore the game, Trout said he had no lingering pain. He declined to go into specifics about the accident but said he was lucky it wasnt more serious.UP NEXTAngels: LHP Tyler Skaggs (2-3, 4.75 ERA) will make his eighth start of the season Saturday -- and third against the Mariners. Skaggs is 0-1 with an 8.31 ERA in two starts against Seattle.Mariners: RHP Taijuan Walker (4-9, 4.19) has lost his last three decisions. ' ' '
