first_imgPhoto credit Leaderboard Photography Final Day round-up:Rebecca Earl closed with a one over par 73 to claim the first international title of her career at the English Women’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship at Ipswich Golf Club.The 19-year-old from Bishops Stortford in Hertfordshire bogeyed the last and faced an anxious wait to see if Whitley Bay’s Rosie Belsham could catch her but in the end her two-under par total of 286 proved to be enough to give her a one-shot victory over Belsham, Stoke by Nayland’s Lily May Humphreys, Scotland’s Shannon McWilliam and Sharna Dutrieux from Wrotham Heath.Humphreys made a late charge in a bid to add to the Welsh and Irish Women’s Stroke Play titles she won earlier in the season but in the end a birdie at the last for a 68 was not quite enough.Scottish international McWilliam also moved up the field with four birdies in the opening 15 holes of her final round but a bogey at the last meant she had to settle for a 69 which left her one shot short.Dutrieux made her move in the morning with a 69 and she looked as if she would maintain her run when she fired five birdies in seven holes from the fifth but four dropped shots over the closing stretch saw her also come up one shot short in the group in second place.Belsham knew she needed to birdie the last to take Earl into extra time but it was not to be and her 74 also saw her finish in the group on one under par 287.On a day when several of the more experienced competitors made a move up the leaderboard Prestbury’s Bel Wardle was seven under par for her first 16 holes but bogeys at the 17th and 18th saw post a 67 and drop her into a share of sixth place alongside Darcey Harry from Wales two shots behind the winner. Harry had led the field by one shot after a third round 68 but a closing 76 dropped her out of contention.Austrian defending champion Isabella Hoplfer closed with a one under par 71 to finish eighth on 289.Day two round-up:English international Rosie Belsham will take a two-shot lead into the final day of the English Women’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship at Ipswich Golf Club in Suffolk.The 17-year-old, from Whitley Bay in Northumberland, added a 70 to her opening round of 69 to post a five-under par total of 139 with two more rounds still to be played on the final day.Belsham’s nearest challengers are Italy’s Maeve Isabella Rossi and England’s Rebecca Earl. Rossi carded seven birdies in a three-under par 69 to move five places up the leaderboard while Earl, from Bishops Stortford, posted a one under par 71.It was not quite such a good day for first round leader Emily Slater, from Gog Magog. She held a slender one-shot lead after an opening 68 but a 74 saw her drop to fourth place three-shots behind the leader.Welsh trio, Darcey Harry, Ffion Tynan and Carys Worby, are all handily-placed on level par 144, as is Anglo-Scot Penelope Brown, from Worthing, who is one shot further behind after a second round 71.Austrian defending champion, Isabella Holpfer, is also still in the mix after improving on her opening 74 by two shots. The 17-year-old, who was runner-up to Slovenia’s Pia Babik at last week’s Girls’ Amateur Championship, goes into the final two rounds tied alongside England’s Bel Wardle, Lily May Humphreys, Sharna Dutrieux, Harriet Lynch and Emily Brennan on two-over par 146.Day one round-up:Emily Slater holds a slender lead after the opening round of the English Women’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship at Ipswich Golf Club in Suffolk.Slater, from Gog Magog in Cambridge, fired five birdies in a four under par 68 to finish the day one shot ahead of England girls’ squad member Rosie Belsham from Whitley Bay and two in front of Bishop Stortford’s Rebecca Earl.Two other English players, Emily Brennan, from Bristol and Clifton, and Harriet Lynch, from Thorndon Park, shared fourth place with Wales’ Carys Worby on one under par 71.This year’s Irish and Welsh Open Stroke Play champion Lily May Humphreys, from Stoke by Nayland, made a solid start to her bid to complete an international treble by posting a level par 72 to finish the day in a tie for seventh place alongside compatriots Martha Lewis, Sharna Dutrieux and Caitlin Whitehead, Italy’s Maeve Isabella Rossi, Scotland’s Shannon McWilliam and Ffion Tynan from Wales.Austria’s Isabella Holpfer opened the defence of her title with a two-over par 74 which saw her finish the round in the group tied for 17th place six shots behind the leader. The 18-year-old arrived in Ipswich straight from finishing runner-up to Slovenia’s Pia Babnik in the Girls’ Amateur Championship at Panmure in Scotland. It was the second year in succession she had been losing finalist in that event.The full field play a second round and then there is a cut with the leading 40 players and those tied for 40th place progressing to the final 36 holes on the third day. 21 Aug 2019 English Women’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship – Daily Updates center_img Tags: Carys Worby, Emily Brennan, Emily Slater, English Women’s Open Stroke Play, Gog Magog, Harriet Lynch, Ipswich Golf Club, Lily May Humphreys, Rosie Belshamlast_img read more

first_imgBentley plays in the five-team Chinook Hockey League, against teams from Fort Saskatchewan, Okotoks, Innisfail and Stony Plain.The Generals dominated the league, finishing in top spot with a 23-1 record.However, Macleod said the playoff run was anything but easy as Bentley won the league championship by defeating Innisfail in the final.“At the beginning of the year I was a little unsure I was making the right decision to play for the Generals but as the year went on, playing with the guys, in realized I missed hockey,” MacLeod, finishing the season with a goal and six assists in 13 games, said.The sour taste MacLeod experienced at the beginning of the season came from time toiling in the ECHL and SPHL.“I really didn’t like the business side of hockey,” said MacLeod, who played for South Carolina Stingrays, Columbus Cottonmouths and Stockton Thunder.MacLeod graduated from Nelson Minor Hockey before playing for Beaver Valley Nitehawks of the KIJHL.He joined Penticton of the BCHL before being traded to Camrose Kodiaks during his final season of junior hockey.MacLeod then spent four years on a NCAA hockey scholarship at Michigan Tech where he earned a degree in mechanical engineering.“I realized after a few seasons (of professional hockey) I wasn’t going to make NHL. I was happy to have an education and decided to go and start the next chapter of my life.”The Generals are 2-0 at the Allan Cup tournament with round robin wins over host Clarenville Caribous 3-2 and a 4-1 victory over Lameque Au Ptit Mousse from New Brunswick.Bentley now faces GF Windsor in semi final round action Friday with a win advaning the Alberta squad into the Final Saturday.MacLeod said the teams at the Allan Cup tournament are very evenly matched.“We could have just as been 0-2 as 2-0,” he said.“But we have a very deep teams and a great group of guys who are really fun play on the same team with.”A team with a Nelsonite playing that will hopefully give Nelson that historical Allan Cup victory. A hockey player from Nelson is trying to accomplish what no Nelson team has ever done before — win the Allan Cup, emblematic of Canadian Men’s Senior AAA Hockey supremacy.Nelson Minor Hockey grad Alex MacLeod is currently in Clarenville, Newfoundland playing in the six-team 2015 Allan Cup Tournament for the Bentley Generals.“I was pretty young when Nelson played for the Allan Cup,” MacLeod said from Clarenville where the Generals were enjoying a much-needed day off in preparation for a spot in Friday’s semi finals.“I remember hearing about Nelson playing in the 1965 and in the 80’s but that about it.”The Allan Cup is the oldest national championship in the country dating back 106 years as the best Senior hockey teams in Canada battled it out for the coveted prize.Nelson Maple Leafs were part of the Western International Hockey League, playing in three Allan Cup Finals in 1965, 1986 and 1987.The WIHL folded in the late 1980s.Playing in the 2015 Allan Cup tournament was probably the last thing on MacLeod’s mind when the season started for the Generals in the fall.Deciding to retire from professional hockey after a few seasons in the East Coast Hockey League and Southern Professional Hockey League, MacLeod was working as a mechanical engineer in Fort McMurray, Alta., when a friend told him about the Generals Hockey Club.“I asked him to gently tell the coach I was interested in still playing,” MacLeod explained.The rest, they say, is history as Macleod’s name was given to a company in Calgary that had an opening for — you guessed it — a recent mechanical engineer graduate.“It all happened within a few weeks,” MacLeod said.last_img read more

first_img3 April 2012With hefty fuel price hikes set to kick in on Wednesday, Energy Minister Dipuo Peters has urged South Africans to be economical in their fuel use – and creative in finding ways to ease the impact of the increases.From midnight on Tuesday, the retail price of 95-octane petrol will increase by 71 cents in Gauteng province and 66 cents at the coast, while the retail price of diesel (0.05 percent sulphur) will rise by 51.9 cents in Gauteng at 47.6 cents at the coast.The wholesale price of illuminating paraffin will increase by 20.6 cents at the coast, and by 26.6 cents in Gauteng.Public transport, lift clubsPeters encouraged South Africans to be economical in their fuel use, while taking steps to ease the impact of the fuel prices increases.“You are encouraged to prioritise fuel efficiency in all your daily activities with the aim of reducing fuel consumption. Avoid speeding, and use public transport whenever it is practically possible to do so.”Peters said the use of lift clubs could go a long way in reducing people’s transport costs.‘Not within our power to prevent’“These increases are not within the government’s powers to prevent,” Peters said, noting that, as a non-oil producing country, South Africa was a price taker and depended on imports.“Fuel prices are dictated by issues such as global political developments among oil producing countries and the big economies of the world.“While global developments and activity are more promising than a year ago, other issues such as the tensions between the United States of America and some of the oil producing countries have contributed to higher crude prices.”Local factors affecting fuel prices include the annual 20 cents and 8 cents per litre increase in the Fuel Levy and Road Accident Fund respectively, announced by Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan in his Budget speech in February, as well as the Transnet pipeline tariff increase.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest According to Iowa State University Economist Dermot Hayes, U.S. pork producers have lost $2.2 billion on an annualized basis due to events leading up to and following China’s 25% punitive tariffs in retaliation for U.S. tariffs on aluminum and steel.“U.S. pork has invested significantly to ramp production to capitalize on growth opportunities around the world, including China and other markets throughout the Asia-Pacific region,” said Jim Heimerl, a Johnstown, Ohio pig farmer and president of the National Pork Producers Council. “We applaud the administration for making the expansion of agriculture exports a cornerstone of the discussions with China. We hope the next round of trade talks with China results in improved market access to a critical export market for U.S. pork and other farm products.”The National Pork Producers is calling for a swift resolution of the United States-China trade dispute, paving the way for increased U.S. pork exports to the world’s largest pork-consuming nation.“Since March 1, when speculation about Chinese retaliation against U.S. pork began, hog futures have dropped by $18 per animal, translating to a $2.2 billion loss on an annualized basis,” Hayes said. “While not all of this lost value can be attributed to trade friction with China, it is certainly the main factor.”The market disruption caused by export market uncertainty comes at a time when U.S. pork is expanding production to record levels. Five new pork processing plants have recently opened or will soon begin operations, increasing U.S. pork production capacity by approximately 10% from 2015 levels by next year. Exports accounted for more than $53 of the average $149 value of a hog last year and support over 110,000 U.S. jobs. The United States has, on average, been the top global supplier of pork over the last ten years. “We produce the safest, highest-quality and most affordable pork in the world,” Heimerl said. “We are dependent on exports and are one of the few sectors of the U.S. economy that can immediately reduce the trade imbalance with China, where pork represents approximately ten percent of the consumer price index. Eliminating punitive tariffs and improving access to China by eliminating or reducing tariffs on frozen and chilled pork would result in an explosion of pork exports, contributing significantly to U.S. economic growth and reduction of the trade deficit.”last_img read more

first_imgThe arrival of Apple’s iPhone 5 is a source of much joy for many consumers who long to get their hands on the latest gadget from Cupertino. But right now it might be causing some some headaches for businesses dealing with some half-baked software and potential jumps in their data bills.Missing in ActionReadWriteWeb has already covered the ground with Apple’s “upgraded” Maps app, which cut the cord with Google Maps data to deliver what can only be described as a sub-optimal experience.But the problems with Apple’s Maps app go deeper than just a bit of inconvenience for end users who want to find the nearest grocery store. It’s also a kick in the bottom line for the grocery store owners – and other businesses – who may not be listed on Apple’s source of business information, Yelp. Any business listed on Google Maps and not accurately listed on Apple’s Maps app stands to lose quite a bit of foot traffic to their establishment.And there are a lot of potential walk-ins affected. According to The New York Times, “even though Android phones far outnumber iPhones… iPhone users account for almost half of mobile traffic to Google Maps.” LTE Sticker ShockThe addition of 4G LTE capabilities on the new iPhone will bring end-users the ability to download a lot of content in a short amount of time. And that could mean some significiantly bigger data bills at the end of the month. For businesses footing the mobile bills for their employees, the impact on the bottom line could be dramatic – especially as carriers continue to phase out unlimited data plans.In the short-term, it’s very likely that businesses will see bigger charges on many employee’s accounts, as they go a little crazy with all that cool data that’s to be had so quickly. It may not be too much of a surprise: any IT department that was already managing LTE-capable Android phones will no doubt have effective policies in place for dealing with data hogs.The good news is, this increase in cost may only be a temporary phenomenon. By next year, all of the major carriers in the US will have LTE capability, which could start a price war among carriers seeking to differentiate. And the iPhone 5’s presence on LTE should give the carriers a swift kick to continue to expand their LTE coverage.Darkest Before The DawnAll of these business issues with the iPhone 5 share a common theme: they are all troublesome in the short-term, but in the longer view they may turn out to be of real benefit to businesses.A more accurate Maps app (as it gets filled in with better data), a more complete Passbook that lets businesses do mobile transactions and cheaper LTE service will ultimately be very good things for businesses seeking to reach customers and keeping their employees connected.Apple is making some risky bets here, but if they can survive the short-term hiccups, companies stand to do very well with the iPhone 5.Image Courtesy of Shutterstock. The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology brian proffitt Serious ImplicationsIt’s not just retail businesses missing, either. The site GottaBeMobile ran a search for emergency rooms in San Francisco and found it very lacking.“Searching for an emergency room with an iPhone 5 brings up private medical offices, pharmacies and just about anything else medical related that’s not a hospital or emergency room. Need a concierge house doc? Sure, he’s mapped, but [San Francisco] General Hospital is missing in action. That pediatrics emergency room? It’s there, but it isn’t marked properly,” the site reported.A similar search for hospitals in my city revealed a starting discrepancy. One of the two facilities was correctly listed, but the other is sited at its old location, which closed in 2009 when the hospital relocated to a new facility. The new facility is completely invisible, both in search results and on the standard map labels itself. (Curiously, Yelp itself has the proper location listed correctly.)Getting A PassPassbook is another new iOS 6 feature that’s promises a channel for businesses to reach users, and the initial reviews on it aren’t too glowing, either.The problem seems to be two-fold right now. Applications have to be upgraded to support Passbook, and many business app developers are still in the process of upgrading their products to accommodate this support. Starbucks, it has been reported, is one of the businesses preparing to add Passbook support to its app.The other side of the equation is end-user education. There are anecdotal reports of the Passbook being difficult to figure out and then, in some cases, not working correctly.Unlike the Maps issue, though, this is something that businesses should be able to control. First, there’s improving or creating a Passbook-supported app. After that, getting customers trained on how to use the app to connect with Passbook should be factored in to the use equation. This is less than ideal, and some analysts are calling Apple to task for not making sure the process was easier to manage. But this is incremental business we’re talking about now, not losing existing customers or marketing channels.

Manager Unai Emery wants to add another winger to his squad and has pinpointed Suarez as a suitable option, having worked with him for one season at Sevilla.Barcelona have promised Suarez that he can leave this month, but they will continue to hold out for a fee.
