Appleby closes in on history

first_imgKAPALUA, Hawaii – Whether they change the greens or change the calendar, it doesn’t seem to matter to Stuart Appleby. Whenever he gets to Kapalua for the Mercedes Championships, he looks unstoppable. On another blustery day that severely tested the 28-man field of last year’s PGA Tour winners, Appleby was steady as ever Saturday and birdied three of his last six holes for a 3-under 70 and a two-shot lead over U.S. Open champion Michael Campbell. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonJim Furyk, a past winner at Kapalua, birdied on the two par 5’s coming in for a 72 and was at 3-under 216. Only a half-dozen players were under par, and only one Kapalua rookie was in that mix. Lucas Glover needed some magic getting there, with a hole-in-one on the 203-yard eighth hole – for a 70 to finish at 217. Vijay Singh (74) and Sergio Garcia (73) each birdied the last hole to get to 218. “If you just miss it, you’re going to hit it way worse than you think,” Singh said. “It was a grind. Putts like 3 or 4 feet it’s like, `Please, hit a good, solid stroke.”‘ Scoring has always been low at Kapalua since the tournament moved here in 1999, with the highest winning score coming in 2000 when Tiger Woods beat Ernie Els in a playoff after they finished at 16 under. Appleby was an inch from the green on the 663-yard closing hole, gently rolled a putt to tap-in range for birdie and walked off the Plantation Course at 6-under 213, in prime position to become the first player in nearly 50 years to win the winners-only event three straight times. Campbell overcame a sluggish start by playing bogey-free over the final 12 holes and shot 71, putting him in the final group with Appleby for the second straight day. center_img This looks more like a U.S. Open – on the scoreboard and inside the ropes. Not even the crashing surf below can put these guys at ease, as they battle wind that makes it difficult to stand still and greens that are firm and fast, making it tough to get the ball close to the hole. That hasn’t stopped Appleby. The Australian walked off the course wondering why he left so many shots out there, although he had few complaints about a 70, which matched Glover for the low round of the day. The average score was 75.04, the second-toughest behind Friday’s average of 75.5. “I don’t think anybody was expecting this kind of a battle the first week of the year,” Mark Calcavecchia said. “I certainly wasn’t. I’m exhausted.” On grainy greens or smooth greens, breezy conditions or gale-force wind, Appleby is proving to be the king of Kapalua. Appleby dropped only one shot Saturday, that coming on the par-3 second hole with a three-putt from 50 feet. Appleby made seven straight pars to hold his position, then gave himself some separation with birdies on Nos. 13 and 15. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

HARPS HOPING TO REMAIN UNBEATEN AS WEXFORD YOUTHS COME TO BALLYBOFEY

first_imgFinn Harps will be hoping to extend their unbeaten start to the season when they host Shane Keegan’s Wexford Youths at Finn Park on Friday evening (kick-off 8.00pm)Peter Hutton’s Harps side have picked up eight points from their opening four league matches – winning both their home games and drawing both games on the road.Last weekend Harps came from 2-0 down to claim a share of the spoils with two second half goals from Thomas McMonagle and Kevin McHugh. The latter took his tally to four for the season with his equalising goal from the penalty spot. Ciaran Gallagher later saved a penalty to ensure Harps left Fahy’s Field with a point. “Against Mervue, I thought we started quite well but unfortunately didn’t really turn our possession into chances,” said Harps boss Peter Hutton as he reflected on the game. “I was surprised at how direct Mervue were and simply went from back to front with probing long balls over the top looking for the breaking ball, which in fairness is difficult to play against if you don’t deal with the first ball.“The pitch though was decent and I want us to play football when the conditions lend itself, but maybe the boys took me too literally and we got caught playing in the wrong areas and ultimately paid the price by gifting them two goals before halftime.“We regrouped though and realised that we were very much still in the game but needed to score first in the second half as I firmly believed that once we got one we’d get another. The players rallied and were excellent and never lost belief. Ciaran’s penalty save was also a mark of how the mentality of the team is changing, he could have felt sorry for himself in giving away the penalty but he remained focused and made a great save to help gain us a valuable point.”Hutton is quick to stress that it is very much a squad game these days, and not just about the eleven that play on any particular matchday. “The character shown by the players has been really refreshing and not just those starting games but also those on the bench and on the fringes of the first team have been tremendous and are really pushing each other on which, given human nature and the desire to want to play, says a lot for the group of players we’ve assembled here, each and everyone has been a credit so far this season.”The Harps boss was also quick to praise goalkeeper Ciaran Gallagher after his penalty save last week, but also stressed that the young keeper still has much to learn.“Ciaran has done well but he himself will also be the first to tell you he can still do better and acknowledges he still has a lot to learn. He is a great professional and takes his football seriously in the quest of continually trying to better himself and with Declan Mc Intyre at the club, who I personally believe is probably the best goalkeeping coach around, Ciaran, young Shaun Patton, Michael Lynch and Rory Kelly when he returns, will all benefit from his tutelage I’m sure. Ciaran for still one so young has gained a lot of vital experience already in his goalkeeping career and I’ve no doubt will continue to improve.”Friday’s game will be Wexford Youths’ tenth visit to Finn Park since gaining senior status in 2007. They have a decent record in Donegal, winning on four of their nine previous visits and losing just three times. Only once, in a 1-0 defeat in August 2007, have they failed to score in Ballybofey. Hutton knows that they will be difficult opponents on Friday.“This Friday’s game will be a real test as to gauge where we are at in terms of maintaining consistency. In many ways I see a lot of similarities in Wexford and ourselves. We both finished last season well and both have largely built upon the bulk of last season’s squads also. “They too like to play football but also have a physical presence throughout their team so they can mix it up too when required. I think it will be a very tight game on Friday they are coming to us on the back of two good victories especially after coming from behind to beat Waterford last week so we’ll give them due respect but will relish the challenge also.”On the team front, Ciaran Coll remains out with a cartilage tear. Sean McCarron who is likely to be out for three weeks with a tear in his calf suffered in last week’s 2-2 draw in Mervue joins him. Shaun McGowan is a doubt with a badly swollen ankle.“Both players left the game in Mervue on crutches last Friday,” said Hutton of the injuries to McCarron and McGowan. “So whilst the news isn’t great for either player it provides those other players with a window of opportunity to come in a stake a claim for a place in the team.”~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TEAM NEWSSuspended: NoneDoubtful: Shaun McGowan (ankle)Injured: Ciaran Coll (cartilage tear), Sean McCarron (calf).Form Guide (last six league games)Finn Harps: L-W-D-W-W-D (11 pts)Wexford Youths: W-W-L-L-W-W (12 pts)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Last six home games against Wexford Youths09-Apr-10 – Finn Harps 2-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)24-Sep-10 – Finn Harps 1-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)06-May-11 – Finn Harps 0-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)22-Oct-11 – Finn Harps 4-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)24-Mar-12 – Finn Harps 0-1 Wexford Youths (First Division)21-Jul-12 – Finn Harps 3-3 Wexford Youths (First Division)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Goalscorers 2013Kevin McHugh – 4Sean McCarron – 3Thomas McMonagle – 1Thomas McBride – 1 (in League Cup)Matt Harkin – 1 (in League Cup)James Doherty – 1 (in League Cup)Marc Brolly – 1 (in League Cup)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Finn Harps Results 2013 (Harps goalscorers in brackets)29-Mar-2013 – AL – Mervue United 2-2 Finn Harps (McMonagle, McHugh)23-Mar-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 1-0 Longford Town (McHugh)15-Mar-2013 – AL – Finn Harps 4-1 Cobh Ramblers (McCarron 2, McHugh 2)08-Mar-2013 – AL – Waterford United 1-1 Finn Harps (McCarron)03-Mar-2013 – LC – Mayo League 1-4 Finn Harps (Harkin, Doherty, Brolly, McBride)HARPS HOPING TO REMAIN UNBEATEN AS WEXFORD YOUTHS COME TO BALLYBOFEY was last modified: April 4th, 2013 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:finn harpsFinn Parkwexford youthslast_img read more

Raw milk wrongful death case filed

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Richard Friedman, age 73, of Putney, Vt. purchased raw milk cheese manufactured by Vulto Creamery of Walton, N.Y. last October. On Nov. 2, he died after suffering a massive stroke caused by the Listeriosis infection. The cheese was contaminated with Listeria.Six people from four states, (Connecticut, Florida, New York and Vermont) have been sickened by the tainted cheese. Another person, in addition to Friedman, has died.Last month, Friedman’s widow filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Vulto Creamery in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York. The lawsuit alleges that Vulto Creamery is at fault for producing a product that was “defective and unreasonably dangerous” and for not properly training or supervising its employees.The lawyer for Friedman’s widow pointed out that, “People think of food poisoning as inconvenient rather than really dangerous. The reality is that what you eat can seriously damage or even kill you. Food providers have a responsibility to protect the lives of their customers, especially when producing raw milk products, which pose a higher risk to consumers.”Food in this country is safe, compared to that of other nations, particularly the third world. We do not have citizens dying in the streets from bad food. That does not mean a consumer should throw caution to the wind.Raw milk is trendy now, and provided all laws are followed, it can be consumed. Just because it is legal, however, does not necessarily make it a sound choice for everyone, particularly the elderly, newborns, pregnant women, or anyone with a weakened immune system.Listeriosis is caused by eating food contaminated with the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. Pasteurization kills this bacteria, so pasteurized cheese is a safer choice. Vulto Creamery has voluntarily recalled all of their cheeses at this point, even though the Ouleout cheese (pronounced OH-lee-out) has been determined the culprit by the Center for Disease Control.Vulto Creamery opened in 2012 in Walton, N.Y., a small town in the western Catskills of New York. Prior to that, Jos Vulto, originally from the Netherlands, began making and aging cheese in his Brooklyn apartment. He was an artist in the metal working medium by training. The website for Vulto Creamery indicates that all of their products are raw milk cheeses that are handcrafted in Walton.Even if Friedman’s widow prevails, she has still lost her husband. No financial award will ever make that right. I’m also assuming that Vulto Creamery has an insurance policy that will indemnify the business. All of the insurance policies in the world will not restore Vulto Creamery’s image. This is just a sad situation for both parties.I’m often confused by the throwback mindset involving food production in this country. The same consumer that demands state of the art medical care and has the latest smart phone and online streaming service would prefer that the American farmer imitate the Amish instead of similarly embracing technology. Louis Pasteur developed pasteurization for a reason, and we are aware of what the process does to make food safer. Yet the consumer will go to great lengths to demand and consume raw milk, knowing full well that listeriosis is a possibility. Why?Are we trying to recapture the good old days? My grandmother had a strong opinion about that mindset. She used to tell me, I was alive back then and those good old days weren’t so good.I’m all for the consumer having choices. I would just prefer they made educated decisions.last_img read more

Exciting New Prospects for Lighting Your Future Set

first_imgIn the wake of the multiple announcements at this year’s IBC, let’s look at some of the newest and craziest lights about to hit the market.It’s a great time to be a filmmaker. Lights are getting lighter, cheaper, and brighter. They can be placed and powered in ways never before imagined. Here’s a few in review.ARRI OrbiterARRI is the undisputed king of cinema lighting. Between its SkyPanel LEDs and its M series HMIs, ARRI fixtures do most of the heavy illumination on professional film sets. While not cheap, they dominate the rental market because of their reliability and durability.Never ones to rest on their own laurels, ARRI introduced a totally new platform called the Orbiter. It’s a RGB LED spotlight with an internal ballast in a form factor that looks more like a generator than a light. This strange, chunky fixture is said to be as bright as a Tungsten 2K, but is actually fully RGB. It offers color effects, remote control, and a variety of detachable light modifiers ranging from super focused spotlight to soft spacelight. Shipping in early 2020, it’ll be around $7000 as a base price.Hudson SpiderThe brainchild of DP Tim Hudson, these multi-armed, parabolic folding arrays give a soft, focused light in places others can’t, such as boomed over a ballroom or strapped to a moving car. They have become a favorite “hero” light on several Marvel films, and other big Hollywood productions.If something is stopping them from becoming more widely adopted, it’s the $7400 price tag. Hudson just introduced the Mozzie, a smaller, more stripped down version — for less than half the price — that can be handheld as a follow fill or bounced into a 6” umbrella for a huge specular source, all powered from a single V-mount.Intellytech LiteCloth MegaLarge, foldable LED blankets have been on the market for some time now, but they’ve been outside the budget of most filmmakers. Then, Intellytech showed off their Mega. This 3’ x 4.5’ light is powered by mains or two V-mount batteries with a frame and a grid, all for less than $2000.It’s such a large, soft source that it doesn’t really need to be modified at all. Just point it at your subject and you have soft, bright light, right out of the box. This is great for high-end interviews that want that “MasterClass” aesthetic, but only have twenty minutes to spare.Digital Sputnik VoyagerA high end approach to the tube form factor, the Voyager is a two or four foot fixture that can be full RGB, but each LED in the array can be controlled independently. That means you can animate different colors or effects into the lights control, even when filming fire or the ocean. Then the light plays back that pattered of color and illumination as an effect. The Voyager really takes RGB to the next level. It’s almost a light projector rather than just a source of illumination.If that’s not enough, it’s also waterproof and the internal blast has its own rechargeable battery.Cover image by laplandr.Want more on lighting tips and gear?

Stags earn another shot

BC to allow marijuana use in public but it wont be sold

first_imgVICTORIA – Pot and liquor sales won’t mix in British Columbia, but adults will be allowed to toke in some public spaces once marijuana is legalized later this year.The province announced new details of its regulatory regime on Monday, including that cannabis will be sold online and through private and government-run stores. Retailers will not be permitted to sell weed in stores that sell liquor or tobacco.B.C. will also allow people to smoke pot in public places where tobacco smoking and vaping are permitted, although it will be banned in vehicles and in areas frequented by children, including beaches, parks and playgrounds.Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth said there are many decisions left to be made and the province is waiting for federal regulations on cultivator licensing, seed-to-sale tracking and packaging.“Some may think that this work will end in July when non-medical cannabis is legalized by the federal government,” he said. “But the truth is our government will be dealing with this significant change in policy for years to come.”Adults in B.C. will be allowed to grow up to four plants per household, but landlords and strata councils can restrict or prohibit cultivation and smoking in properties.The province will create a 90-day ban for those caught driving while drug-impaired and it will increase training for law enforcement officers to recognize impairment.The B.C. government announced in December that 19 would be the minimum age to possess, purchase and consume non-medical cannabis. It also said B.C.’s liquor distribution branch would be the wholesale distributor of non-medical marijuana.Farnworth said the province will launch an online application process this spring for people who are interested in applying for a retail licence, but licences won’t be approved without the support of local governments.Vancouver and Victoria have already set up regimes for marijuana dispensaries, but Farnworth said B.C. respects the wishes of other municipalities, such as Richmond, to reject pot shops altogether.“We’re not forcing anything down any community’s throats,” he said.Kerry Jang, a Vancouver councillor and co-chairman of a committee providing input on B.C.’s cannabis regulations, said the licensing rules are very similar to those in place for liquor stores.“Both sides have to agree before a licence is given for alcohol, and it’s no different now with cannabis,” he said. “I think that is an ideal situation.”Jang said the aim of the regulation allowing landlords to ban cannabis use and cultivation was to put an end to illegal grow operations inside rental properties.“The main goal of that approach is to really stop the abuse that has gone on for many, many years that landlords and other tenants have complained about,” he said.Operators of illegal dispensaries will not be barred from consideration for a licence, nor will those with a record of low-risk criminal activity, the government said. However, involvement with organized crime will exclude applicants from becoming a licensee.Kirk Tousaw, a lawyer focused on cannabis policy reform, said the province should have also considered direct-to-consumer sales at cultivation sites, as is permitted for craft breweries and vineyards.“It’s also, I think, unfortunate that renters are going to find themselves with less legal rights than people who own property, particularly when it comes to consumption,” he said.The Responsible Marijuana Retail Alliance of BC, an initiative of the union representing public liquor store workers and an association of private liquor outlets, said it was disappointed the government rejected its proposal to sell cannabis.But it said liquor stores were still “well positioned” to provide safe and reliable access to cannabis because the province will allow marijuana stores to be located adjacent to alcohol-selling establishments.Most provinces have decided against allowing liquor and pot to be sold together, though the Northwest Territories and Nova Scotia have permitted it. As for public consumption, Ontario has banned it outright but some provinces have allowed it.B.C.’s policy changes are expected to be introduced at the legislative session this spring, and the government plans a public education campaign to create awareness of the rules before they come into force.Mike Morris, the public safety critic for the provincial Liberal party, said the NDP government is dithering in making actual decisions and has only released part of its plan.“The B.C. Liberal focus has always been public safety, ensuring children aren’t exposed to cannabis and not allowing criminals to benefit from legalization. The NDP has failed with these weak regulations and British Columbians deserve better.”— By Laura Kane in Vancouver. Follow @ellekane on Twitter.last_img read more
