WASHINGTON Cheap Jordan Shoes For Sale , Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- In her first testimony to the Congress, U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen reiterated central bank's plan to taper its stimulus exit despite recent weakness in the economy.

The current economic situation and outlook, as well as the monetary policy, were the main focus of the hearing held twice a year.

Yellen told lawmakers she expected "a great deal of continuity" in the central bank's monetary policy, saying that she served on the Fed policy-setting committee as the bank formulated its current policy strategy and she strongly supported that strategy.

Yellen, 67 Nike Air Jordan Retro For Sale , took the oath of office to lead the Federal Reserve System on Feb. 3, succeeding Ben Bernanke, who stepped down after eight turbulent years. She was previously the Fed's vice Chair.

In the public debut in her new role, Yellen said while the economy gained steam at the end of 2013, recovery in the U.S. labor market was "far from complete," underscoring the importance of considering more than just the unemployment rate when evaluating the conditions of the labor market.

Her point of keeping an eye on wider range of labor indicators is particularly important as the unemployment rate Nike Air Jordan Shoes For Sale , now at 6.6 percent, is near the 6.5 percent threshold the Fed once identified as the level that would need to be reached before officials would consider a hike in the interest rates.

"If coming information broadly supports the Committee's expectation of ongoing improvement in labor market conditions and inflation moving back toward its long-run objective, the Committee will likely reduce the pace of asset purchases in further measured steps at future meetings," Yellen indicated steady pullback in Fed stimulus, referring to the Federal Open Market Committee, which sets monetary policy.

While admitting she was "surprised" by the two recent jobs reports that showed the pace of job creation running under what she had expected Nike Air Jordan For Sale , Yellen cautioned against jumping to conclusions of the longer trend. She told the Congress that the Fed needs to see a "notable change" in the economic outlook to consider pausing its withdrawal of stimulus.

The Fed trimmed its monthly purchases of Treasury and mortgage- backed securities by a total of 10 billion dollars in both December and January, citing strengthening economy and continued improvement in the labor market.

The Fed policymakers have suggested they would continue to reduce the bond buying, which now totals 65 billion dollars a month, at a similar pace at each Fed meeting and end it by the end of 2014, provided the economy develops generally in line with expectations.

Yellen also highlighted the Fed's financial regulatory role, saying that the work of making the financial system more robust " has not yet been completed."

CANBERRA Nike Jordan Retro For Sale , Oct. 7 (Xinhua) -- The new season of the A-League, Australia's premier football competition, which begins on Thursday night, is threatening to be overshadowed by a bitter pay dispute with its players.

At the season launch on Tuesday, Football Federation Australia (FFA) chief executive David Gallop urged the players' union, the Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) Nike Jordan Shoes For Sale , to sign what he considered a "good deal" for players.

"We wanted it to happen last week and we call on it to happen this week so we can settle into the season," Gallop said.

"I am frustrated about the time that it's taken. Indications from the PFA leadership are that the deal is agreed but needs to be ratified."

"The bottom line is affordability. The offer on the table is a good deal. It accommodates the PFA's desire to see a 'whole of game' CBA (collective bargaining agreement) -- the Socceroos, Matildas and the A-League -- over four years."

Gallop said both sides, at this stage, did not want strike action to disrupt games.

"I think the fans would expect the games would go ahead in any circumstances and I think the PFA recognize that as well," he said.

Last month Air Jordan Retro For Sale , Australia's international female side, the Matildas, who reached the quarter-finals of the World Cup in Canada earlier this year, called off its tour of the United States to show their displeasure at pay package offered under the new deal.

The PFA on Tuesday claimed the FFA needed to provide a "strong financial foundation" in order for the A-League to attract and maintain world-class players.

The A-League has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2004. Along with the success of the national team, the Socceroos, the A-League has helped give the country a renewed interest in the "world game Air Jordan Shoes For Sale ," which is now the third most popular football code after Australian football and rugby league.

It will be looking to build on that popularity in the forthcoming season, the 11th overall.

The league's newest franchise, the Western Sydney Wanderers, will be looking to shake off the disappointment of last season against Brisbane Roar in the season opener on Thursday.

The Wanderers, who had a mixed year winning the 201314 Asian Champions League while finishing second bottom of the A-League, has looked to shore up its defensive stocks this season Air Jordan For Sale , signing Melbourne City keeper Andrew Redmayne.

Brisbane, meanwhile, has endured a horror off-season with the club struggling to stay afloat, despite being a powerhouse of the league a mere 18 months ago.

The club, under new manager John Aloisi, attracted very few signings over the off-season and lost Socceroos midfielder Luke Brattan following mounting player unrest and staff debts.

The loss of captain Mark Milligan shapes as the biggest obstacle last year's champions Jordan Retro Shoes For Sale , Melbourne Victory, must overcome if they hope to reach the summit once again.

Victory will travel to South Australia on Friday to face Adelaide United in their first match.

Adelaide United has also a manager at the helm, Barcelona legend Guillermo Amor.

Amor, who played 421.
