RIO DE JANEIRO -- Rio de Janeiro Mayor Eduardo Paes, who talked openly of plans to teach next year at New Yorks Columbia University after helping pull off the Olympics, has changed his mind. .His office confirmed to The Associated Press that he would not be teaching as planned at Columbias School of International and Public Affairs.There was a change of plans, his office said in a statement. The decision was made because the mayor intends to have flexibility to come and go from the US, which would not be possible if he were to teach classes. That would hold him with many obligations there.Columbia, which announced the appointment last month, said only that Paes would delay his planned residence at SIPA. The university declined in a subsequent request for give more details.In announcing the one-year appointment last month, Columbia said a private foundation had funded a residency for a Brazilian mayor.Paes reputation has been tarnished in recent weeks. He leaves office at the end of the year after serving his term limit.He was lauded by the International Olympic Committee as the driving force behind the Olympics, pushing building projects that were stalled for several years before he took charge.Earlier this month, a state judge froze his assets as a prosecutor investigates if he improperly waived environmental fees for the developer of Rios Olympic golf course. The developers assets were also frozen.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: . His work can be found at . Tracey comes to the Blue Bombers after spending over a decade with Queens University.

Thats about all he can do right now, so hes trying not to think about when he might be able to play again for the Los Angeles Lakers. A remarkable race to AFL finals ended with a frenzied finish at the MCG on Sunday that has only heightened expectations of something special in September.Six clubs, including triple reigning premiers Hawthorn, started the final round with a chance of snatching the minor premiership or missing out on the top four entirely.The Hawks posted a one-point win over Collingwood at the MCG on Sunday, setting up a mouth-watering qualifying final against rivals Geelong at the same venue.Sydney and Greater Western Sydney will meet in the other qualifying final, while Adelaide and West Coast will host elimination games against North Melbourne and Western Bulldogs respectively.History dictates only the top-four sides can win the flag - it has been that way since the introduction of the current system.But the advent of a pre-finals bye and final-round ladder logjam suggests it could be different this year.The finals series will be really close this year. I reckon probably anyone in the top eight can steal it if they play well for a month, Hawks midfielder Isaac Smith said.It should be a pretty interesting finals series for the fans.Hawks coach Alastair Clarkson suggested it would be foolish to dismiss any of the top-eight sides, pointing to how eighth-placed North won through to an elimination final in 2015.Ladder positions (being up for grabs in the final round) indicate its pretty close, Clarkson said.Were of the view that every side in the top eight is a dangerous opposition.On aany given day they can play some outstanding footy. Its going to be harder (to win the premiership) from fifth to eighth but it doesnt mean it cant be done. Particularly this year when theres a little bit of a curveball in terms of the (post-season bye).Clarkson indicated he would try to keep things as normal as possible during the upcoming week.The only difference is were not playing a game next week, he said.Well be pretty low key early in the week and give our players plenty of time to recover but then start to prepare for the Cats.Premiership players Ben Stratton and Ben McEvoy are likely to return for the Hawks against Geelong.Plenty of other clubs will be making some big selection calls over the next fortnight - on account of both form or fitness.The Swans will surrender home-ground advantage against GWS but boast plenty of confidence after five straight wins, the latest being a 113-point demolition of Richmond.Geelong were resounding 111-point winners over Melbourne in the final round of the season, while the Giants downed North by 37 points on Saturday.Western Bulldogs, who travel to Perth and face the Eagles in week one of the finals, have plenty to think about after a shock 20-point loss to Fremantle on Sunday.The Crows were also far from convincing in round 23, suffering a 29-point loss to the Eagles at Adelaide Oval.
