Biden considers Judge Childs, among others, for Supreme Court nomination: White House******

US District Court Judge J.Michelle Childs is among those being considered by President JoeBiden for nomination to the Supreme Court, a White Housespokesperson said on Friday.

Childs would replace Stephen Breyer, who announced onThursday he would retire at the end of the court's term in June.

He has promised to pick the first Black woman to serve onthe high court and is expected to pick from a list of about 10or fewer people, meeting with candidates as soon as next week.

Biden nominated Childs last month to the influential US Court of Appeals forthe District of Columbia Circuit but is putting that on holdwhile considering her for the Supreme Court.

Other names expected to be on Biden's list include KetanjiBrown Jackson,a federal judge; Leondra Kruger,a justice on the California Supreme Court; and Sherrilyn Ifill, a prominent civil rights lawyer who heads the NAACP LegalDefense and Educational Fund.

"Judge Childs is among multiple individuals underconsideration for the Supreme Court, and we are not going tomove her nomination on the Court of Appeals while the presidentis considering her for this vacancy," said Andrew Bates, theWhite House spokesperson.

"At the same time, reporting indicating that the presidentis only seriously considering three potential nominees isincorrect."

The spokesperson made the statement after the SenateJudiciary Committee delayed a planned hearing on Tuesday onChilds' nomination to the D.C. Circuit.

Childs, whose federal district court is in South Carolina,has been endorsed by US Representative James Clyburn, themajority whip and third-ranking Democrat in the House ofRepresentatives, who is close to Biden.

The president has tapped a team to help him make the selection, which he plans to announce bythe end of February.

Feature: Chinese basketball player hoping for no regrets ahead of Australian debut******

CANBERRA, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- Although he arrived in Australia more than 10 days ago, basketball player Liu Chuanxing has yet to see the country where he will spend the next two years.

Currently sequestered in hotel quarantine, he has a simple daily routine: sleeping, eating and exercising.

"Australia is a new starting point for me," said Liu, who signed a two-year deal with the Brisbane Bullets of Australia's National Basketball League (NBL) in September. "I will do my best and leave no regrets in my career."

This is the first time that Liu has played for a club outside China. At 2.25 meters tall, he will be the tallest player in NBL history, according the Brisbane Bullets' website.

Dubbed "Big Liu", he previously played for the Qingdao Eagles in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA) in 2018, averaging 9.7 points and 8.3 rebounds. Selected to play in the 2021 CBA All-Star Game, he is also a member of the Chinese national team.

Looking into the future, however, he expects more.

"I know that I'm lacking many things in my game to play at a higher level and I want to use this season and every practise to get better and be able to help China win games in FIBA competitions."

In a recent interview with Xinhua, Liu said that the Brisbane Bullets had given him lots of help.

"They cared about my life here and the coach, the general manager and the NBL chairman all sent their regards after my arrival," he said.

Most importantly, the club sent some equipment to his quarantine hotel in Melbourne to help him continue with his training program.

Liu wakes up early in the morning, usually at 6am, and begins training.

Indoor space is limited, so he uses an elastic rope and a portable water bag for strength exercises.

While his quarantine ends on Thursday and he is eager to "breathe the air" outside, Liu has a longer-term task: learning English.

He said his English is just basic at the moment. For communication, the club has found him an interpreter, and he himself is making efforts to improve his language skill.

Discussing why he chose the NBL, Liu said that the league was generally thought of as "of high level with fierce confrontations", which was what he needed.

"I have shortcomings in terms of physical confrontation," he said. "And in terms of technique and awareness, I definitely need to improve."

"This is a very good opportunity for me," Liu added. "I will try my best to learn and transform what I learn to my advantage."

Asked if he had plans to play in the NBA, which is the dream of many basketball players, Liu appeared pragmatic.

"What I am focusing on is the present, and on working hard now in Australia," he said. "I will start with defense and rebounds, contributing as much as I can to the club."

Liu's compatriot Zhou Qi has also arrived in Australia, signing a two-year deal with South East Melbourne Phoenix, and Liu said he was looking forward to facing Zhou. "He also encouraged me to work hard." Enditem
