The pound held steady at around $1.32 and 1.17 euros late Wednesday as British members of Parliament shot down all eight Brexit proposals put to them as an alternative to Prime Minister Theresa May’s unpopular withdrawal deal.Parliamentarians began voting at 7 p.m. local time Cheap Nike Shoes , and the results came through around 9:30 pm. They were asked to write yes or no on each deal, and the noes won for all the options laid out, including a no-deal Brexit, revoking Article 50 and canceling Brexit altogether, a customs union with the European Union and a temporary customs union with the EU until new trade deals can be struck.MPs will now try to narrow down the eight defeated options and attempt to vote on the ones that garnered the most support on April 1. The most popular deals had to do with maintaining a customs union deal with the EU, and holding a confirmatory referendum, or people’s vote, on any Brexit withdrawal agreement approved by Parliament.“There are no easy options, no simple way forward,” argued MP and Brexit secretary Stephen Barclay. “The deal the government negotiated was is the best option.”Earlier in the day, May had promised to step down as prime minister if her Brexit deal is finally passed. May’s plan, which has been voted down twice, is unpopular because it involves a controversial clause that opponents fear could keep the U.K. in the customs union indefinitely — and effectively block Britain’s withdrawal from the EU.The clause deals with the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, which both Britain and the EU want to keep open and without checks.May could bring her deal back to Parliament as early as this week, according to media reports, and is so desperate to push it through that she has promised to resign if it’s successful, leaving whoever takes her place to oversee the future trade negotiations with the EU.“I am prepared to leave this job earlier than I intended in order to do what is right for our country and our party,” she told Tory MPs cheap Nike sneakers , according to the BBC. “I ask everyone in this room to back the deal so we can complete our historic duty to deliver on the decision of the British people and leave the European Union with a smooth and orderly exit.”She did not say when she would step down, but media outlets are speculating that it could be as early as May, with the likes of Boris Johnson, Michael Gove and Jeremy Hunt among those being talked about as her successor. There is also talk of calling a general election in a bid to release the country from its Brexit deadlock.The U.K. has until April 12 to come up with a withdrawal plan, and if it fails, it could crash out of the EU in what’s known as a “hard,” or unmanaged, Brexit. If May’s deal passes, the U.K. will have until May 22 to leave the EU.This story was reported by WWD and originally appeared on WWD.com. Zion Williamson is undeniably college basketball's biggest star and is widely considered a generational talent. So industry insiders expect brands to fight over him when he declares for the NBA Draft."Zion arguably is literally 'bigger than life.' He has a major physical presence on the court that one could say belies his athleticism and agility — and ability to defy gravity with his jump skills. And he is undoubtedly a rising star who seems to be likable," said B. Riley FBR analyst Jeff Van Sinderen. "Those are important qualities as they relate to being a brand ambassador."But the brand he will choose to sign with is up in the air.Williamson plays for Duke University, a Nike-backed school, but was spotted on Instagram live recently rocking Adidas head to toe. And after Williamson's on-court sneaker blowout incident in February, Puma mentioned he'd fare better in the brand's sneakers on Twitter (in a tweet the brand would eventually delete).The NPD Group Inc.'s senior sports industry analyst Matt Powell believes every brand invested in the sport has a shot. Vansinderen thinks the list is narrower, with Adidas and Puma as frontrunners. And Ankur Amin, CEO of TGS (the parent company to retailers including Extra Butter), believes Nike and Puma are likely the leaders to sign the baller.But when it comes time to sign on the dotted line, regardless of familiarity with a given brand, money could prove to be the biggest factor."My opinion is he’s going to sign with whoever pays him the most money. It’s going to be who wants to step up Cheap Men Air Max , that’s who will have the advantage," Powell said.Although a bidding war is expected, experts disagree on if Williamson will have product from a brand bearing his name. Powell and Vansinderen think a signature shoe may come to fruition, but not right away. Amin sees it differently."With Nike, it seems like a signature shoe would happen. But if anybody else signs him then absolutely, it would be an opportunity missed if not done immediately," Amin said. "I can’t imagine [a brand such as] Puma signing him and not giving him a signature shoe immediately."He continued, "If he fulfills his potential [on the court] he could have a major impact on most brands. He could be the face of an entire line for a company, the face of an entire business unit."Despite insiders agreeing on his star power, Powell has some doubts concerning Williamson's ability to sell sneakers."While he doesn’t play center he’s built like a center and traditionally big men have not sold shoes," Powell said. "It will be interesting if he could generate the kind of interest in footwear. Guys of his size need a very structured shoe, not a guard’s kind of shoe, the kind a shoe that a 12-year-old is going to wear to school. That may limit the merchandising upside."But brands are already invested in ballers who play the same position as Williamson. Three of Nike's signature athletes (LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Paul George) are all forwards. The brand's other active player with a shoe is Kyrie Irving, a guard.However, labels other than the Swoosh are more guard heavy: Under Armour has Stephen Curry and Adidas is aligned with James Harden, Damian Lillard and Derrick Rose.Williamson and Duke will start March Madness on Friday at 7:30 p.m. ET.
