Spain's Dani Pedrosa claimed the 50th Grand Prix win of his career on Sunday Cheap NBA Basketball Jerseys , taking victory in the Japanese MotoGP as runner-up Valentino Rossi extended his lead in the championship standings.

Pedrosa, who almost quit the sport earlier this year because of an arm problem that needed surgery, grabbed the lead seven laps from the end of a wet race at the Twin Ring -circuit in Motegi.

He surged clear of his -rivals to win for the first time this -season and the 50th of his -career, which began in the 125cc class in 2001.

Rossi finished second while his Yamaha teammate and championship rival Jorge Lorenzo faded to third after -leading for most of the race -until he had dropped back when having tire problems.

Rossi now leads Lorenzo by 18 points in the standings with a maximum of 75 available from the remaining three rounds, in Australia, Malaysia and Valencia.

Pedrosa had not won a -MotoGP race since the Czech Grand Prix in August 2014 and missed three of the season's first four races due to the arm surgery.

The 30-year-old has suffered from a problem common among motorcycle racers when pressure builds up in the -forearm and causes intense pain Cheap Basketball Jerseys , making riding a bike difficult when the muscle becomes too big for the "sack" that it sits in.

Sunday's race was delayed by heavy morning rain which forced organizers to shorten the Moto2 and Moto3 races but Lorenzo was all smiles at the end of a long day.

"I kept my rhythm while the others burned their tire," he said. "At the end my pace was faster and I'm really happy."


UNITED NATIONS, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- The special representative of the UN secretary-general for Iraq, Nickolay Mladenov, on Tuesday stressed the optimism he feels for the country's future, while tempering those hopes with fear over the many things that can go wrong and saying the most pressing goal for the Middle East nation remains defeating Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant ( ISIL).

""I am a paranoid optimist Cheap New NBA Jerseys ,"" Mladenov said in his final briefing as the UN Iraq envoy to the UN Security Council, noting the efforts made by the Iraqi political, community and religious leaders to save their country from terror. ""Today, more than ever, there is a growing understanding that the country can only move forward based on the principles of democracy, rule of law Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys , respect for diversity and inclusivity.""

Even though the national unity government was set on addressing many long-standing concerns of the Iraqi people, Mladenov said that he remains ""paranoid.""

""So many things can go wrong,"" he said. ""ISIL remains in control of most of Iraq's western provinces, the fragile efforts towards unity and reconciliation need to be carefully nurtured if they are to bear fruit, while the economy has been hit by falling oil prices and skyrocketing security costs,"" he said.

Iraq is facing an insurgency by the jihadist group ISIL Cheap Authentic NBA Jerseys , also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or the Islamic State (IS), which has forced thousands of people mainly from minority communities to flee their homes since late last year.

The group, whose fighters had seized vast swaths of territory in northern Iraq since June 2014 and announced the establishment of a caliphate in areas under its control in Syria and Iraq, has released videos showing beheadings of people including two American journalists and a British aid worker.

Mladenov also touched upon the Iraqi government's ""important steps"" on political and institutional reform, economic and social reconstruction and national reconciliation, as well as its efforts to engage countries in the region.

""Iraq's most pressing goal remains to win back territory taken by the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant Cheap NBA Jerseys Online , ISIL,"" he said. ""The authorities have pledged to provide military and financial assistance to local leaders and tribal fighters to aid their struggle against ISIL.""

Moving forward would require expansion of the process of inclusion into the political sphere, as an exclusively military solution to the problem would be both impossible and counterproductive, he said.

""ISIL flourishes when Iraq is weak,"" he said. ""Iraq is weak when it is divided by sectarian politics, when political patronage overtakes national loyalty.""

Mladenov said many risks remained despite positive steps taken. He pointed to the toll taken by armed conflict and acts of terrorism Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys , with more than 12,000 civilians killed in 2014 and 23, 000 others injured.

""Almost daily terrorist attacks continue to deliberately target all Iraqis, most notably the Shi'ite community, as well as ethnic and religious minorities across the country,"" he said Cheap NBA Jerseys From China , decrying ISIL's violations and abuses as ""gruesome"" and stressing the "" serious threat"" they posed to the country's cohesion, with increasing reports of revenge attacks, and the marring of recent military gains by claims that militias have killed unarmed civilians.

The country was challenged also by fiscal constraints and UNAMI was working actively with the authorities to set up a Recovery and Reconstruction fund, while the challenge posed by supporting internally displaced persons was also huge.

According to him, 5.2 million people need humanitarian assistance, of whom Cheap NBA Jerseys China , 2.25 million are displaced and 235,000 are refugees from Syria, with the population of the Kurdistan Region having increased by 30 percent because of the influx.

The UN's humanitarian country team had listed fast track priorities which could not be postponed or ignored and he called for 150 million U.S. dollars to support the internally displaced people.

During his briefing, Mladenov also spoke about the issue of missing Kuwaiti and third-country nationals and property, pointing out that the Kuwaiti Government and people were ""understandably disappointed"" that nothing tangible has been achieved for many years on the matter.
