LPGA’s Lindberg misses cut in men’s NZ Open

first_imgQUEENSTOWN, New Zealand — LPGA major winner Pernilla Lindberg of Sweden has missed the cut at the New Zealand Golf Open after becoming the first woman to play in the 101-year-old men’s professional tournament. Lindberg shot 1-over 73 Friday to follow her first round 9-over par 80, finishing in a tie for 151st in the 156-strong field. While she missed the cut, she surpassed her goal for the tournament – to ”beat just one man” – by beating four. The 11-year LPGA Tour veteran, who won the ANA Inspiration in 2018, played the tournament on a sponsor’s invitation, teaming in the pro-am format with New Zealand rugby star Beauden Barrett. She was married in Queenstown a year ago and was holidaying with her husband in the South Island resort to celebrate their first anniversary when she was invited to compete. Full-field scores from the New Zealand Open ”I was going to be here anyway and it is my favorite country,” Lindberg said. ”I couldn’t say no. Any chance to tee it up at these beautiful courses I could not say no.” The first two rounds of the tournament are played over two courses, The Hills and the Millbrook Resort with the last two rounds at Millbrook. Korean teenager Joo-hyung Kim retained a one shot tournament lead at 11-under par, following his first round 64 with a 5-under 67 on Friday.last_img read more

2017 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R gets new colour

first_img2017 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R gets new ‘Pearl Blizzard White/ Metallic Flat Raw Titanium’ colour. Team Green just unwrapped a new colour scheme for its flagship model, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R. New for 2017 onwards is the ‘Pearl Blizzard White/ Metallic Flat Raw Titanium’ featured in the image.Whilst a great number of the bike’s fairings will come dressed in the Pearl Blizzard White scheme, much of the lower fairings will be coated in a Metallic Flat Raw Titanium instead.Added contrast comes from the revised green-finished nitrogen reservoir canisters for the superbike’s Showa Balance Free Front Forks. The Ninja ZX-10R’s decal graphics also sees minor design changes.This new ‘Pearl Blizzard White/ Metallic Flat Raw Titanium’ colour combination will be offered alongside the model’s existing two colour schemes, which are the green and black combination livery plus the black ‘Lime Green/ Ebony KRT Replica’ option.No word on pricing just yet, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Kawasaki imposed a slight hike in the price figure for this premium new paint scheme.Launched late last year, the new generation Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R has since garnered a strong reputation for itself in its segment. Much of this comes down to the model’s re-energised and high-tech array of features that include a Bosch IMU system as well.Presently, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R retails in Malaysia from RM104,859 (with GST) sans road tax, insurance and registration costs.

Richard Schiff hints at a ‘West Wing’ reunion to benefit Black Lives Matter

first_img“The West Wing” cast — Photo by: James Sorensen/NBCU Photo Bank(LOS ANGELES) — Richard Schiff is hinting that a reunion of the cast of the Emmy-winning NBC drama The West Wing could be in the works, and like those that brought the casts of shows like Community back together, a charity component would be involved. Schiff had been posting photos on his Twitter showing he was a part of the protests over George Floyd, who died May 25 while in police custody when former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin knelt on his neck. The incident led to ongoing worldwide protests. Schiff was asked by a fan whether his current show, ABC’s The Good Doctor, would somehow address the Black Lives Matter movement, and if he’d heard about how the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine had donated $100,000 to the Bail Relief Fund for those arrested during the protests. While Schiff said it wasn’t his place to speak for The Good Doctor‘s producers, he noted, “I am working with my cast mates from The West Wing for these purposes. Including a cast reunion and reading coming soon. Good for Brooklyn 99. I hope it makes a difference.”Schiff won an Emmy for his role as White House Communications Director Toby Ziegler on The West Wing, which starred actors whose activism remains a big part of their off-screen lives, including Martin Sheen, Allison Janney, Bradley Whitford, Dulé Hill, and Rob Lowe.By Stephen IervolinoCopyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Ghostriders double Leafs to remain undefeated

first_imgThe lead stood up until Colton Schell worked a pretty three-way passing play with teammates Gavin Currie and Cameron Dobransky with three minutes remaing in the frame.Fernie, undefeated in six games, dominated the Leafs for most of the game, holding a commanding 32-20 margin in shots and an 18-5 advantage in the first period.The loss snapped a brief two-game winning streak by Nelson, which started the season 0-4. The Leafs opened the weekend with an 8-3 trashing of Grand Forks Friday in the Boundary City thanks to a  four-point performance from Currie and two goals by Schell.The win gave Nelson some payback after the Bruins blasted the Green and White 6-2 earlier this season.After the teams traded goals, a power play marker by Currie put the Leafs ahead for good. Colton Malmsten gave Nelson a 3-1 lead before the period ended.Zachary Thompson beat Marcus Beesley in the Leaf nets to pull the Bruins to within a goal six minutes into the second frame. But Nelson outscored Grand Forks 3-1 in the late stages of the period to take a commanding 6-3 advantage after 40 minutes.Connor McLaughlin and Schell scored in the third to pad the Nelson lead.Dallon Stoddart, Marcus Dahl and Adrian Moyls also scored for the Leafs. Thompson led the Bruins with two goals while Nick Van Damme added the final marker.The Bruins out shot the Leafs 34-30.

The Ghostriders, 5-0 to start the season, dumped Creston Thunder Cats 3-1.BLUELINES: The official word by the KIJHL for suspending head coach Chris Shaw was due to the Leafs using  “non-approved – by Hockey Canada – players.” Twice Shaw used ineligible players and received a one-game suspension for the first offence (the Sept.18th contest against Grand Forks) and a two-game (during the Sept.19th game against Penticton) sit for the second. Assistant coaches Jason Rushton and Sean Dooley handled the coaching duties . . . Nelson was also without the services of defenceman Raymond Reimer. The 6’4”, 205-pound rearguard was suspended for one game for receiving a game misconduct in the final ten minutes of Sunday’s 3-2 Nelson win over Penticton Lakers.

Clarity demanded over plans to reopen LUH Short Stay Ward

first_imgDeputy Pearse Doherty is seeking urgent clarification from Government over its pledge to reopen the 19 bed Short Stay Ward at Letterkenny University Hospital.The Donegal TD was speaking following having received a response to a Dáil Question on the issue of new hospital beds in which the Minister failed to specifically cite Letterkenny as one of the locations where additional beds will be rolled out next year.Deputy Doherty said “As many people will be aware the campaign to have the short stay ward at Letterkenny Hospital has been something which Sinn Féin has been to the fore on for many months now. “In fact, a petition initiated by the party last July garnered over 5,600 signatures from people across the county demanding that the ward be reinstated in order to alleviate the chronic problem of hospital overcrowding.“And while the pledge made by the government following the budget earlier this month that the short stay ward would be reopened was a fantastic achievement and one which is owing to people power, there are still serious questions over just how genuine the government’s determination is to deliver this pledge.He added that when he sought clarification from the Government over recent days about its plans to provide additional hospital bed capacity and queried the locations and time frame for the delivery of these new beds, there was no reference made to the Letterkenny Hospital in the Minister’s reply.“Instead, the Minister simply responded to state that in early 2019 an additional 80 hospital beds will be brought on stream and these included an additional 30-bed ward in Our Lady of Lourdes Drogheda, a 40-bed modular ward block in South Tipperary General Hospital, and four high dependency beds in the Mater and Cork University Hospital respectively. “The Minister went on to give some vague details about the government allocating an additional €10 million in capital funding next year for further acute beds as part of the Winter Initiative 2019/20.“It’s now vital – given the severity of hospital overcrowding and lack of capacity at LUH – that the Government immediately provides clarity in respect of these plans to reopen the Short Stay Ward in Letterkenny.“This is why I intend to now raise this issue once again with the Minister where I will be demanding clarity in relation to the unit and when it’s expected that the short stay facility will be reinstated at the hospital.”Clarity demanded over plans to reopen LUH Short Stay Ward was last modified: October 23rd, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalletterkennyluhPearse Dohertylast_img read more

ThinkFree Reaches 1 Million Hosted Documents

first_imgTags:#web#Web Office Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Web Office suite provider ThinkFree has announced it has hit the 1 Million mark in number of hosted documents, up from 654,000 in late February when we last reported ThinkFree’s usage. Their community uploads between 60,000 to 80,000 documents per month and currently ThinkFree has 335,000 users, up from the 250,000 in February.ThinkFree also stated in their blog post that they are the number 2 Web Office suite provider, behind Google Apps. They wrote:“GD&S is a great lightweight tool, but having the best MS Compatibility and the highest level of feature functionality of any online offie suite has propelled us into the second spot.”ThinkFree’s main startup competitor Zoho also recently announced user numbers, stating that they have over 300K users. The current figure is around 310k, according to a Zoho representative I checked with tonight.Judging by the figures both companies provided, it seems that Zoho’s growth rate is stronger. According to their blog post, Zoho took “12 months to get to the first 100K users, 6 months for the next 100K users and 4 months for the last 100K users.” However it’s great to see that both Web Office startups are experiencing high usage and growing well. While Google is the dominant player in this market, both ThinkFree and Zoho are an acquisition away from being major players in the office software market (e.g. Microsoft or Oracle might buy them).Disclosure: Zoho is a R/WW sponsor A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… richard macmanuscenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Related Posts last_img read more
