  • United Nations officials voted on North Korean sanctions today

That recommendation is expected to be ratified this week in Peru.

It sees the Games return to the U.S. for the first time since the 1996 Atlanta Olympics and marks the third occasion in which Los Angeles has hosted (1932, 1984).

The decision Wednesday marks the first time the International Olympic Committee has granted two Summer Olympics at once. Paris will host for the first time since 1924. Some 83 percent of residents in Los Angeles County said they want L.A.to host the Olympics in 2028 in the survey. L.A. has hosted the Olympics twice previously in 1932 and 1984, but this will be the first time the city hosts the Paralympics.

See you in 11 years.

A slew of starters to be rested for Europa match
This season's Europa League represents a golden opportunity for Wenger to finally win European silverware for his club. On Thursday night, at the odd and unfamiliar time of 8:05 p.m.

"With Los Angeles and Paris, the Olympic Games are in very good hands", Baumann said in the evaluation commission report released in July. The L.A. team quickly marshalled its resources, working around the clock to reach an agreement with the USOC under which Los Angeles would take over for Boston.

The IOC in July made a decision to award the next two editions to the two cities left in the 2024 race, with Paris getting the 2024 edition and LA the Games four years later.

Los Angeles is proud to be a three-time Olympics host and to be part of the Olympic movement, Gene Sykes, CEO of LA 2028, Los Angeles' Olympic organizing committee, told Xinhua in a recent interview.

And Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, added: "Bringing the Olympics back home to LA gives us the chance to imagine what our city will look like a decade from now".

Apple TV 4K Has Finally Been Launched
In addition to delivering 4K HDR support with the new Apple TV 4K, Apple delivered a lot of new ways to use this technology. Support for both Dolby Vision and HDR10 ensures users can enjoy incredible-looking TV shows and movies on any HDR TV.

International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach said the votes for both cities were "unanimous". There are also other plans on display including a new public transportation system and more energy efficient infrastructures.

Casey Wasserman, chair of the bid, wearing sneakers with his suit, promised to deliver Games that will be "California cool".

Los Angeles has bid 10 times, and its path to 2028 was long and circuitous. The IOC also agreed to funnel any of its profits from the Games back to the city.

In 2015, Boston was initially awarded the US bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, but dropped out.
