A ban on athletes using stamina-boosting gases - xenon and argon - came into effect on Monday. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said Hypoxia-Inducible Factor (HIF) activators Xenon and Argon have been added to the 2014 List of Prohibited Substances and Methods List following the required three-month notice period and UNESCO's communication to all States Parties. A recommendation to revise the British manufacturing growth eased further in August to its lowest level in 14 months as output and demand increased at slower rates, survey results from Markit Economics showed Monday. The Markit/CIPS Purchasing Managers' Index dropped to 52.5 from a revised 54.8 in July. Economists had expected the score to fall to 55.1 from July's original figure of 55.4. Consumers spent less in July than in the previous month, a surprise retreat that complicates the prevailing belief that the U.S. economic situation is improving. Along with the unexpected drop in spending, government figures released on Friday showed that incomes rose at a slower pace in July than in the previous month. Meanwhile, data on prices indicated that inflation pressures remain tame.
