""There was a meeting involving the board on Monday night and it was decided that they would not continue in their respective roles,"" Palmeiras said in a statement.

KUNMING, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) --A new book and documentary film on China's war survivors were officially released on Friday Men's Under Armour UA Stephen Curry 1 Mids Grey Black , capturing the increasingly rare tales from witnesses of WWII.
Sadly, one third of the war survivors featured in the book passed away before the book was published, said Li Genzhi, the author of "Wartime Civilian Workers in Tengchong."
"It is a race against the clock before they are all gone," he said.
The book draws its interviews from Tengchong, a county-level city in southwest China's Yunnan Province Men's Under Armour UA Stephen Curry 1 Mids White Royal Yellow , and home to one of the worst battlefields in the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression seven decades ago.
The 400,000-word book tells stories of civilians who voluntarily acted as porters to carry rice and supplies along a dangerous mountain path for the Chinese Expeditionary Force in 1944 as they planned to reclaim the China-Myanmar border town occupied by the Japanese invading army during the war.
Affected by continuous rain, it was difficult to deliver food to the Chinese soldiers by air. So nearly 30,000 Tengchong people, most of whom were women, elders and children Women's Under Armour UA Stephen Curry 1 Lows White Gold , had to bring back around 600,000 jin (300,000 kg) rice from Hupa Village on the other side of Gaoligong Mountains, which is at an average altitude of 3,000 meters.
"You would never get lost on this road because piles of corpses would show you the right direction," recalled Zhao Shunguo Men's Under Armour UA Stephen Curry 1 Lows Black White , 97. He remembers accidentally stepping on the belly of a decayed corpse by accident, resulting in a foot infection.
"I've had problems sleeping my whole life due to intensely itchy feet," Zhao said.
However, if given another chance, he would make the same choice. He believed if he could bring more food to Chinese soldiers, the war might end earlier and his brother Women's Under Armour UA ClutchFit Drive 2s Black White , who was fighting on the frontline, might come home earlier. In the end, his brother never returned.
These civilians spent a total of 45 days delivering the rice, 35 days longer than the original plan. Around 4,000 carriers died on the road climbing over Gaoligong Mountains or back home due to hunger, cold and diseases such as malaria Men's Under Armour UA Micro G Torchs Black , said Li.
Li, a freelance writer and film maker, became interested in Tengchong's war survivors because two of his relatives were among the dead. He said every family in Tengchong has scars caused by the war.
However, few reports or books have focused on civilians there who supported the frontline. In 2008, Li quit his job as a journalist and established his own studio four years later to focus on war history.
Over the past ten years, Li has interviewed 70 survivors who carried food supplies for soldiers when reclaiming Tengchong and the family members of those who died on the road. The book is a collection of oral accounts of 24 people.
"The youngest is 87 years old Men's Under Armour UA SpeedForm Gemini Royal Black , while the oldest has surpassed 100. The population of these people dwindles every day. I'm racing against time," he said.
Yang Zhenxiang, 104, died before the book was published. Yang's husband was killed by infectious disease on the Gaoligong Mountains when bringing the food supplies for Chinese soldiers over 70 years ago. The woman refused to believe and has waited for the man until her death.
Li says statistics and descriptions of war don't always catch the attention of youth.
"They need details and real stories to show how war affects each individual, each family and each country."
Next year, he will publish a book about forced laborers who were taken by Japanese troops.
Three people Li has wrote about in his recently published book were invited to attend China's first military parade on Thursday in Beijing to mark the anniversary of the end of WWII and the victory of the war of resistance against Japanese aggression.
"I'm delighted that those unknown war heroes can be known by people seven decades later Men's Under Armour UA SpeedForm Gemini Grey White , and I'll continue to tell the untold stories. It's about love and humanity, not just war," he said.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) -- Things are not looking so great for U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who was not long ago seen as the only viable Democratic contender for the White House in 2016 but is now under siege by scandals and opposing candidates.
Indeed, Democratic challenger Senator Bernie Sanders trounced Clinton in recent days in an unofficial poll of attendees of the U.S. state of Iowa State Fair Men's Under Armour UA SpeedForm Gemini Black White , a testing ground for a slew of candidates who descended on the days-long event in recent days in a bid to gain the attention of media and the U.S. public.
Sanders led Clinton 49 percent to 45 percent in the poll and continued to draw large crowds in recent weeks, as he has tapped into the anti-establishment fervour of the Democratic Party's progressive wing.
Analysts say Clinton must be careful not to underestimate Sanders, and contend that campaign strategists are likely advising her to strike back soon and hard. Indeed, Sanders has been stealing th.
