Americans rally after shaky starts in women’s Olympics short program

first_imgAlina Zagitova led heading into Friday’s free skate with a record 82.92 points, followed by Russian teammate Evgenia Medvedeva with 81.61. Canada’s Kaetlyn Osmond was third with 78.87.Nagasu wound up ninth, with her teammates right behind.Tennell landed everything during her early morning practice — in fact, she had landed just about everything since arriving in South Korea — and that had given her tremendous confidence heading into her short program at Gangneung Ice Arena.But after landing her opening triple lutz, Tennell was unable to hold onto her triple toe loop, falling on the second half of a combination that had become so familiar.“It was definitely unexpected. I don’t remember the last time I made a mistake in my short program, especially on the jumps,” Tennell said. “But things happen. We’re all human. We all make mistakes. You just have to get up a keep going. I’m definitely a fighter. I do not give up.”ADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Sea turtle trapped in net freed in Legazpi City GALLERY: Barangay Ginebra back as PBA Governors’ Cup kings It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Karen Chen bobbled her opening triple lutz, which was supposed to feed into a triple toe, forcing her to adjust the rest of her routine to squeeze in another combination jump.All three Americans showed tremendous resilience in holding their programs together.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkTennell, the first skater on the ice for the short program Wednesday, wound up with the lead for more than two hours with her score of 64.01 points. Nagasu had 66.93 and Chen totaled 65.90, leaving all three out of medal contention but proud of the way they fought back.“I think it’s just that each of us have been through so many experiences and ups and downs. We each struggle with our individual obstacles,” Chen said. “I’m sure they’re all really different but the same in many ways, and I think that’s given us character, to never give up and keep going.” Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. View comments UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer She certainly did not, landing a triple loop and double axel later in her program.Tennell had to go hours before the rest of the contenders because starting groups are determined by world rankings. She spent most of the past couple of years injured, and did not participate in some of the biggest competitions. The result was a 4 a.m. wakeup for her Olympic short program.“I’m not very fond of being in the first warmup, but it is what it is,” Tennell said. “We all have our own challenges. You just have to skate the best you can.”Nagasu’s challenge was to land the forward-starting, 3 1/2-revolution jump that causes plenty of men trouble. She nailed the triple axel during her early practice, though she also stepped out trying it two other times, and again during her warmup in front of her coach, Tom Zakrajsek.When the music to “Nocturne” started, Nagasu took a deep breath and began building up speed. She then unleashed a spin with so much energy she actually over-rotated, sending her to the ice.“Sometimes,” she said, “I just let my nerves push me a little too far.”Like her teammate, Nagasu picked herself up and pressed on. She nailed a triple flip-triple toe combination along with a triple loop, and her strong spins and step sequence finished out the program.“I think about last year when I wasn’t going for triple axel and how much easier the program was, but you still have to rack up the points somehow. You have to play the game,” she said. “This isn’t what I wanted, but at the same time, you can’t always have what you want.”Chen did not participate in the team event, when the U.S. won the bronze medal , so her short program was her Olympic debut.Her bobble on her opening combination forced her to ditch the second jump, then add it on the fly later in the program. She kept her composure and slotted it in to achieve the most points possible, but the mistake still knocked her out of the podium race.center_img Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano “I’ve been nailing that every day in practice and I expected myself to, and to not be able to do that was a huge disappointed,” she said. “For sure, I was a little flustered after that.

IBE hosts Caricom themed annual culture day

first_imgThe Institute of Business Education (IBE), 60-61 Lusignan Public Road, East Coast Demerara (ECD) on Friday held its third annual Culture Day, and students took the opportunity to celebrate the Caribbean CommunityThe “obeah or Voodoo man” of Haiti was one of the displays featured at the exhibition(Caricom) by hosting an exhibition about the various member states.The students were divided into groups that were tasked with educating visitors about each territory. The students displayed the history, culture and traditional aspects of their selected countries by way of demonstrations and crafts.Jamille Hatten, an English and Integrated Science teacher at IBE explained that the idea of a culture day based on Caricom, was inspired by a need to educate the students about the establishment and the members of the body.According to the teacher the students already have a wealth of knowledge about what is happening in Guyana from a cultural perspective based on the last two annual observances of cultural day and the intention going forward with this year’s event was to focus on culture outside of Guyana. He noted that the institution choose to highlight Caricom because of the recently concluded 37th Heads of Government summit held in Guyana.“We want to make them more aware of what Caricom is about and what Caribbean countries are really for and what the cultures are. With that in mind we have the theme “One people separated by water” so with that theme we are running through with Culture Day 2016. We are just trying to show that even though we are different countries, different islands and so forth…our cultures might be similar and so on,” he stated.He related that it took about three days for students to get the displays ready, adding that both the school’s administration and students are looking forward to continuing the tradition. “What we look forward to is the students learning much about our country,” he stated.Meanwhile, Sherifa Parks, a fourth form student explained that the event has proven to be beneficial to her and other students as it has provided an opportunity to learn about Caricom in a fun and interactive way: “It was wonderful, we have learnt so much about the countries that we are displaying. We’ve looked at their history, their foods and so much more,” she stated.last_img read more

Think tank: California’s is one of leanest work forces

first_imgBut Levy cautioned that the analysis does not necessarily mean California government operates as efficiently as it can. And he noted that employee salaries in California tend to be higher than most other states’, partly because of the high cost of living. Some conservative critics believe those high salary levels are fueling laxity in state government employees. State Sen. Tom McClintock, R-Thousand Oaks, said that simply because of economies of scale, least-populated states tend to have the most employees per resident while larger states automatically rank near the bottom. McClintock said California actually should rank at the bottom and has the highest average salary figures for state employees – far higher than other states with similar cost-of-living levels. “What the numbers are actually telling us is there is a great deal of fat that can be cut from state bureaucracy,” McClintock said. “Quite the opposite of the conclusion they’re reaching.” McClintock said California’s average monthly payroll works out to about $5,211 per employee. By comparison, New York state pays around $4,750 per employee every month and the federal government pays about $3,945. The study comes four years after Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger ran for office in the 2003 recall and vowed to make state government leaner and more efficient. harrison.sheppard@dailynews.com (916) 446-6723160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SACRAMENTO – While critics believe California state government is bloated, a new analysis from a Silicon Valley think tank suggests the state has one of the leanest work forces in the country. Census data released this week shows California had 393,609 full-time-equivalent employees as of last March, working out to 105 employees per 10,000 state residents, according to the Palo Alto-based Center for Continuing Study of the California Economy. That makes California the third-lowest in the nation in state employees per resident, behind every state except Illinois (at 103) and Nevada (at 104). The federal government has 142 employees per 10,000 residents. “It does suggest that at least compared to other states, we’re not carrying a lot of extra employees,” said center director Stephen Levy. last_img read more

Spurs possibly won’t sign anyone -Pochettino

We’re working on that. I cannot tell you if we’re going to sign one, zero or two or three or four.”He added: “I think I am working and focused on trying to deliver my job, our job.

‘A FORCE to be reckoned with!’ – Ex-England man believes in Euro 2016 chances

first_imgAlan Smith has talked up England’s chances of European Championship glory this summer, claiming there is far more to come from Roy Hodgson’s men.The Three Lions have performed well enough at Euro 2016 thus far to convince the former Arsenal striker there is a real case for optimism, despite finishing behind Wales in Group B.Smith, who won 13 caps for England, told talkSPORT: “I’ve been really pleased with the way that they’ve played. It’s easy to forget how they’ve been over the last few tournaments. How many times have we said we can’t keep possession?”“We’ve tried to take the game to the opposition, we have dominated possession, but we just haven’t been able to finish it off.”A 0-0 stalemate against Slovakia on Monday ensured that England would finish second in their group, having won only one of their three group games. They must now face a resilient Iceland side on Monday in their last 16 clash.Yet Smith has issued a rallying cry to supporters, insisting that the best may still be yet to come.He continued: “I don’t think we should get too down, yes it is a blow to not finish top of the group and it hurts even more that Wales have finished top!“We’ve got to be positive and if we can continue playing like that and we can find that edge to our play then we are going to be a force to be reckoned with.”last_img read more

Starting in the late afternoon’s calm and serenity, Bryan’s bogey start was quickly erased with back-to-back birdies at 2nd and 3rd, followed by two further back-to-back birdies at 7th and 8th to give him a front nine return of 33gross shots, and 25pts.Strangely starting the back nine as the first with a bogey at 10th and also 12th, Bryan steadied the swing to birdie the treacherous par four 15th to return an inward nine of 37 shots and 20pts., signing his card for a magnificent score of two under gross 70 and no less than 45ptsCongratulations Bryan.With the biggest occasion of the members’ golfing calendar having taken place on Saturday last [CAPTAIN’S DAY], club members were delighted to hear that local investment consultants Con Friel & Co. have renewed their sponsorship of the golf club’s “greens flags”  GOLF NEWS: BRYAN MARGEY WINS THE CAPTAIN’S PRIZE AT BARNHILL was last modified: July 22nd, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:BarnhillFeaturesgolfNoticesSportlast_img read more

GOLF NEWS: JIM ‘HARLEY’ BREAKS SWEAT AS HE WINS NORTH-WESTERN GOLF MEETING WITH EASE

first_imgNORTH WESTERN GOLFING ALLIANCERosapenna Golf Club (Sandy Hills )Saturday 7th March. The weather conditions on Saturday 7th were so atrocious that the “Iron Man” competition taking place in the locality had to have some of their stages altered because the storms were so severe.So, who would attempt to play golf in that weather? “ impossible!”I hear you say. Well, the hardy men of the North Western Golfing Alliance went out and played 18 of the toughest holes in those awful conditions! At times, it appeared that the competition would have to be called off, as the balls were oscillating on the greens. But “no” they insisted! No gale or storm force winds were going to deny these golfers their opportunity to play one of Paul McGinley’s ten favourite courses on these isles, and so they teed-off, played and returned their score cards.In the Gross section, Michael McGeady [NW] returned a fine 78 while pursued by two local favourites, John G.Mc Bride [PGC] and Marty McDermott [SGC]. John G. had a “card wrecking” start to his round, taking eight [8]at the par five 1st that would have been enough for most competitors to make the decision that, with the weather the way it was, a return to the blankets would be justified but, with his pride and golfing etiquette keeping him going, he shrugged off that setback to manfully continue and finished up in third place. Marty had his difficulties also, but back-to-back birdies on the par five 8th and par four 9th sustained him enough to keep him playing and he was runner-up to Michael whose usual tidy round propelled him into second place in the golfer of the year. In the Nett section, Jim Harley of Strabane Golf Club had a magnificent 35pts to finish three points clear of the field. Jim’s playing partners finished first and second in the golfer of the year placings but now the “bragging” rights following this performance belong to him. Jim had 17 points on each nine, but three blanks did not upset his game on this day. In second place was Paul Duffy from Faughan Valley. Paul had a poor front nine which only harvested 14 points but his back nine of 18pts saw off the challenge of Connor McGettigan, Letterkenny GC who made the turn with 17 points but promptly blanked the 10th and could only score 15 more points on the way home.This was the last counting event for the golfer of the year and the only positions to settle were the runner-up places, as the first placings in both the Nett and the Gross had already been decided .The winner of the Nett was Maurice McGettigan and his brother Odran, already in second place, was not overhauled although his clubmate from Strabane GC, Eddie McHugh, made a gallant effort to deprive him of that runner-up spot, finishing just four points behind.In the Gross section, Finnian O’Doherty from Letterkenny was already declared the winner following the last outing but Michael McGeady, who had only played in half of this season’s events, finished just nine points behind the winner and overtook Noel Callan, Faughan Valley, who was laying second before today.All attention now turns to the CAPTAIN’S PRIZE which is the next competitionFull results: [Par 72; S.S. 72] Nett:1st Jim Harley (19) Strabane G.C. 35 Pts2nd Paul Duffy (6) Faughan Valley G.C. 32 Pts3rd Connor McGettigan (12) Letterkenny G.C. 31 Pts[ b.o.t] 4th Clive Davison (12) Portsalon G.C. 31 PtsGross:1st Michael McGeady (Scr) North West G.C. 78 gross2nd Marty McDermott (3) Strabane G,C, 80 gross3rd John G.McBride (scr) Portsalon G.C. 82 gross4th Brendan McCarroll Snr; (5) North West G.C. 84 grossThe following had “2”s.

Grandfather inspires Donegal woman to tap into the gin business

first_imgA new brand of alcohol – Muff Liquor – is launching in Donegal next month with a fun and cheeky identity, but instilled within it is a story of hard work and craftsmanship from a well-known Donegal farmer.Greencastle native Laura Bonner moved back to Donegal in 2017 to co-found The Muff Liquor Company with her business partner Tom Russell from Manchester.The first product of the company is a Muff Irish Potato Craft Gin that’s set to launch on February 3rd. The name of the gin might raise a few eyebrows around the world, but in an interview with DonegalWoman.ie, Laura said she was confident that the taste will speak louder than the title: Laura said: “The name is something I thought of while back and I think it perfectly represents the fun and cheeky identity we want to establish with the company. I have a feeling the name is going to stand out amongst the other brands on the shelf behind the bar!”Laura’s grandfather Philip McClenaghan was a well-known Inishowen potato farmer in Greencastle who, she says ‘could literally turn his hand to anything’.“One of his many hobbies was to make a potato based poitín so the idea of making a unique based spirit just stuck with me,” Laura said.The Muff Liquor Company founders: Tom Russell and Laura BonnerLaura has previously worked in London and Dublin in property, PR and sales before moving home to pursue her business dream of creating craft liquor. She said couldn’t be prouder to have her grandfather’s image as a representation of the ideas and values of the company:“Behind this fun and cheeky exterior, there are the core ideas of hard work, respect for tradition and making something born of the land and crafted by hand. “These were ideas Granda McClenaghan passed down through my family and it’s something I want to make sure is at the centre of everything we do,” she said.Just like Granda McClenaghan’s brews, the Muff Gin is made from potatoes, which Laura says gives it a smooth texture. Advertisement Mandarin, lemon, rosemary and elderflower and one secret ingredient add fresh and vibrant flavour with sweet notes to the drink, which will be best served with straight-up tonic or elderflower tonic.Gin has had a number of years reigning as the favourite spirit of many, but Laura believes the best is yet to come.“I don’t think gin has really hit its peak yet. I think people still love trying new flavours and exploring new tastes,” she said.Muff Gin is entering the market at the height of its popularity, while the company directors hope to bring vodka back with the launch of a premium potato-based vodka in the coming months. Advertisement Tom and Laura are concentrating on launching the gin in the Asian and Middle East market this year before establishing the brand in the USA, Asia, Australia, and Europe.The gin is currently being distilled in Co. Offaly at the home of Mór Gin, although Laura and Tom are planning to build their own distillery in Inishowen soon. The dream is to have a distillery, head office and visitor centre in Donegal which will hire local people and employ local farmers to source ingredients.“A connection to the local area is very important to me and while my ambition is to be an international brand, the local community of Muff and Inishowen will be at the heart of it,” Laura saidWe’ll be seeing Muff Gin in pubs, cocktail bars and high-end restaurants at home and internationally after it launches on February 3rd.For those who can’t wait to try it, Laura assures us the gin will be readily available in Inishowen – where the soul of the company resides.  Grandfather inspires Donegal woman to tap into the gin business was last modified: January 17th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:alcoholBusinessEntrepreneurginlaura bonnermuff liquor companyVodkalast_img read more
