Ben Schmidt became just the fourth golfer in history to win both the Brabazon Trophy and the Carris Trophy in the same calendar year when he won the English Boys’ Under 18 Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship at Moor Park Golf Club.The 16-year-old from Rotherham Golf Club became the youngest ever winner of the English Men’s Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship (Brabazon Trophy) at Alwoodley in June and he completed a rare double when he claimed his second national title of the season in the boys’ equivalent in Hertfordshire.His wins in both the Brabazon Trophy and the Carris Trophy mean he joins Patrick Hine (1949), Sandy Lyle (1975) and Peter Baker (1985) as the only players to have achieved that feat.Schmidt started the last day as favourite after opening with rounds of 72, 67 and 72 but in the end he had to battle all the way after dropping three shots to par over the first five holes before recovering to post a level par 72 and finish tied with Spain’s Rodrigo Martin on five-under par 283.Martin holed an 18-foot birdie putt on the 72nd green to tie with Schmidt but on the first extra hole he carved his tee shot into the trees on the right of the fairway and ultimately failed to get up and down from the edge of the green for his par. Schmidt hit a wedge to 20-feet and two-putted for a winning par.“It’s been a tough day,” Schmidt admitted. “I’ve not played my best golf, or anything like it, but I dug in and eventually found something on the back nine to help me get across the line.”I didn’t really feel comfortable all day,” he added, “but I got the job done and I’m very pleased with that. It’s great to get another win under my belt.“My goal this year was simply to play as much good golf as I could. I put a lot of work in over the winter. I was hoping that would pay off but not for one second did I think it would be anything like this.“It’s been a bit mad but I’m really enjoying it.”Further down the leaderboard Norway’s Herman Wibe Sekne closed with a two-under par 70 to finish tied in third place with England’s William Skipp on 285 while another Englishman Oscar Doran fired a 69 to finish in a share of fifth place with Louis Dobbelaar from Australia two shots further behind.It also proved to be a good event for Scotland’s Calum Scott who closed with a 70 to claim a share of seventh place with English trio Jake Hibbert, Archie Smith and Craig Passmore and Egor Eroshenko from the Czech Republic. The latter closed with a best of the day six-under par 66.Scott also went on to collect some silverware of his own by winning the Hazards Salver awarded to the leading competitor under the age of 16.That contest produced a Scottish 1-2 with the Nairn youngster beating compatriot Aidan O’Hagen by one shot on level par 288. England’s Jack Ingham, who plays out of the Eindhovensche Club in The Netherlands, was third on four-over par 292.An Italian 2 squad comprising Luca Civello, Lorenzo Bruzzone and Alessandro Gambetti won the Nations Cup staged in conjunction with the first two rounds of the individual competition. They finished on level par 288 one shot ahead of an England 1 team made up of Ben Schmidt, Conor Gough and Max Hopkins.View results 27 Jul 2019 Schmidt’s winning streak continues at the Carris Trophy Tags: Ben Schmidt, Carris Trophy, England Boys’ Squad
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown makes a catch in a drill during an NFL football practice, Tuesday, June 12, 2018, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Keith Srakocic) PITTSBURGH (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger doesn’t talk like someone eyeing the finish line.If anything, the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback is doing what he can to push it further into the distance.The 36-year-old overhauled his diet in preparation for his 15th season and points to the lack of time spent in the trainer’s room during camp as proof the choices he’s made are working.Asked if he feels rejuvenated and Roethlisberger nods.“I really like where this team is,” the two-time Super Bowl winner said. “I think if you didn’t have a good feeling about this team it probably wouldn’t be as exciting, but I am excited about this group.”The feeling, however, could be fleeting. Eight months removed from a stunning home playoff loss to Jacksonville , the Steelers are well aware the missed opportunities in recent seasons are starting to pile up. While Pittsburgh has reached the postseason in each of the past four years, the Steelers have just three playoff victories to show for it. Le’Veon Bell, shown here in this New Pittsburgh Courier file photo from Brian Cook, rushed for nearly 180 yards Oct. 15 against the Chiefs in the Steelers’ 19-13 win.Though Pittsburgh is heavily favored to win a third consecutive AFC North title, the window that once seemed so wide open could be starting to close. All-Pro running back Le’Veon Bell is likely playing his final season in black-and-gold after failing to come to terms on a new contract. The offensive line features three Pro Bowlers but also three starters in their 30s.While Roethlisberger downplays any additional sense of urgency — he’s been around long enough to know that any season that doesn’t end with a victory parade through downtown Pittsburgh in early February is considered a disappointment — he’s also well aware the standard coach Mike Tomlin mentions so frequently has not been met.“Winning games can lead to Super Bowl opportunities is always our ultimate goal,” he said. “There are 31 other teams doing the same, but that needs to be our singular focus.”A focus that was lacking at times in 2017 even as the Steelers rolled to a 13-3 record.There was the national anthem debacle in Chicago. The drama surrounding enigmatic wide receiver Martavis Bryant. The late season decision to cut linebacker James Harrison. The devastating spinal injury to budding star linebacker Ryan Shazier. Social media chatter of a rematch with New England in the AFC title game, chatter that looked foolish after the Jaguars beat the Steelers at Heinz Field for the second time in four months. The front office has done what it can to limit the distractions heading into 2018. Bryant was traded to Oakland. Harrison is retired. Longtime quarterbacks coach Randy Fichtner takes over as offensive coordinator for Todd Haley. Shazier is walking again and serving as a de facto coach/scout as his body continues to recover.The message could not be clearer: the team that’s built to win now needs to win. Now.“Time is running out for everybody,” center Maurkice Pouncey said. “I know it’s all fun and games for everybody at the beginning but man it’s time to win. It’s been too long.”Other things to look for as Pittsburgh vies for a fifth consecutive playoff berth for only the third time in franchise history:REMODELED BACK END: The Steelers gave the secondary a massive overhaul after the Jaguars lit them up for 45 points in January, drafting safety Terrell Edmunds in the first round and signing veteran Morgan Burnett from Green Bay. The goal is to reduce the number of big plays allowed. Pittsburgh gave up 13 passes of more than 40 yards, tied for third-most in the league. Burnett’s sure tackling will help in the run game and Pittsburgh believes third-year safety Sean Davis’ athleticism will allow him to be an effective center fielder at free safety.FLIP FLOP: Pittsburgh exercised the fifth-year option on the contract of outside linebacker Bud Dupree in the offseason, a sign it believes the 2015 first-round pick’s best days are ahead of him despite uneven results in his first three years. The Steelers moved Dupree from the left side to the right side in the spring, confident he’ll be a more effective pass rusher attacking the quarterback’s blind side. Either way, Dupree understands he’s still in the “prove it” mode in his career and needs to become more consistent at a position that’s long been a focal point in Pittsburgh’s 3-4 defense.BELL’S BET: There may not be a player in the NFL with more at stake in 2018 than Bell. The 26-year-old believes he’s in a class by himself among running backs and wants to be paid accordingly. He’ll make $14.4 million this season playing under his one-year franchise tender, but thinks he’ll be even more valuable on the open market next spring. Bell shouldn’t lack for opportunities to show he’s worth a massive payday. He led the NFL in touches last season and Tomlin could opt to use him even more extensively knowing he’ll be out the door in the spring.TIGHT SPOT: The Steelers are still trying to find a legit heir to tight end Heath Miller, who quietly stepped away in the spring of 2016. While Jesse James has evolved into a solid complementary player, Vance McDonald is the closest thing to a complete package Pittsburgh has at a vital position. One problem: McDonald has struggled to stay on the field. He missed practically all of camp with a foot injury. The Steelers need him to be a factor in the passing game to help take some of the attention off Brown and second-year wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFLfootball and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) passes in the first quarter of an NFL preseason football game against the Tennessee Titans, Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, in Pittsburgh.

Facebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Pacific Mountain Workforce Development CouncilIt is with tremendous excitement that we announce Pacific Mountain Workforce Development Council (PacMtn) has been awarded a National Emergency Grant (NEG) in the amount of $5,586,385. The grant will fund assistance for approximately 900 transitioning service members from Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM). It will provide these transitioning service members with case management, supportive services and training to help them apply the sought after skills they acquired through military service in the civilian workforce.Over the next year, as the military down sizes, the Department of Defense will be transitioning over 8,000 service members from JBLM. Nearly 40% of those heroes are expected to stay in the region. It is also expected that another 12,000 that called Washington home before joining the service will be transitioning out of other bases from around the U.S.“This region is privileged to have Joint Base Lewis-McChord in our community. Those who have served our country deserve to be welcomed with yellow ribbons, banners and opportunities for jobs that use their sizeable skills to make our communities better,” said Cheryl Fambles, CEO of PacMtn. “The Workforce Development Councils of this state, along with all our local partners are excellent at making those connections for them to do so. The resources of this grant will help us do it even better.”This NEG will take important next steps in the implementation of the “VOW to Hire Heroes Act”, which was written by U.S. Senator Patty Murray, and signed into law by President Obama in 2011. The primary goal of this effort is to not only lower the unemployment rate for our national heroes who are transitioning from military service, but also to connect this talented highly skilled labor force to the jobs of our region.“Today’s news serves as a shining example of what happens when we establish strong partnerships between the public and private sector in order to support our nation’s heroes,” said Senator Murray. “For too long we’ve been patting our veterans on the back to thank them for their service and sending them out into the job market alone without the basic help they need. I’m grateful for the work being done by JBLM and the Pacific Mountain Workforce Development Council to implement the VOW to Hire Heroes Act and provide our men and women in uniform with the tools and resources necessary to not only make it in the workforce, but to succeed.”
All along the Jersey Shore Saturday, Oct. 26, volunteers could be found participating in Clean Ocean Action’s Beach Sweeps. Approximately 5,700 volunteers registered across New Jersey to help clean the beaches and catalogue what types of trash were found. The data is then compiled into an annual report used to bring awareness to the state of the beaches. At Sea Bright, approximately 250 volunteers picked up broken pieces of plastic in an array sizes from bottles, straws, cups and – a newer pollutant – e-cigarette pods. At Sandy Hook alone, over 600 volunteers combed the various beaches for trash, finding driftwood, water shoes, cups, wagon wheels, nails and potato chip bags. Photos by Patrick Olivero
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have made it back to the Grey Cup next Sunday in Edmonton.However, the Roughriders know they’ll be constantly reminded of the 2009 heartbreak over the next few days, but they’re happy to be in a position to talk about it.The Roughriders upset the Calgary Stampeders 20-16 in a frigid West final Sunday at McMahon Stadium in Cowtown.

RUN OVER A SLOPPY TRACK, SHAM PROVIDES WINNER WITH 10 KY DERBY QUALIFYING POINTS ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 7, 2017)–In what quickly developed into a two-horse race, a short head separated Gormley and American Anthem in Saturday’s Grade III, $100,000 Sham Stakes, with Gormley prevailing under Victor Espinoza in 2017’s first graded prep to the $1 million Santa Anita Derby on April 8. Trained by John Shirreffs and owned by Jerry and Ann Moss, Gormley, a Kentucky-bred colt by Malibu Moon, got a flat mile in 1:35.89 on Santa Anita’s sloppy main track.With Mike Smith gunning favored American Anthem from the rail, Espinoza sat a close second just off the leader’s right hip into and around the Club House turn. As the field made its way into the far turn, the top two separated themselves and “threw down” the final quarter mile in a thriller that looked like it could go either way.“That was a great race,” said Shirreffs, who sent Gormley out to win the Grade I FrontRunner Stakes here two starts back on Oct. 1. “We’re very proud of him. He’s quick. He starts quick, he gets away quickly, but then he checks himself as he gets into the race and he relaxes. It was great to see him pick it back up again and get it done.”Although favored on the morning line, Gormley, who came off a disappointing run in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile on Nov. 5, was the 8-5 second choice and paid $5.20, $2.80 and $2.40.A first-out maiden winner going 6 ½ furlongs on Sept. 4 at Del Mar, he now has three wins from four starts. In addition to the winner’s share of $60,000, he also picked up 10 Kentucky Derby qualifying points.“This type of thing never gets old,” said co-owner Jerry Moss, who also won the 2005 Kentucky Derby with Giacomo. “He’s got a lot of heart and I know he’ll go further than this.”“I expected him to run the way he ran today,” said Espinoza, who’s ridden Gormley in all four of his races. “I know he’s still improving but I think he only gets better and better. Hopefully, he gets a lot better…In the Breeders’ Cup he broke slow but today, he came into the race in really good shape and got into it right away.”A gutty first-out maiden winner at six furlongs on Dec. 3 at Del Mar, American Anthem was faced with a tall order stretching out against the likes of Gormley in only his second start. Ridden by Mike Smith and trained by Bob Baffert, American Anthem got hammered late to even money and paid $2.60 and $2.20.“For only his second time out, that was pretty impressive,” said Smith. “If we’d been on the outside…I think that probably would’ve helped out a little bit getting beat a half a nose.”Ridden by Santiago Gonzalez, Big Hit ran on for third, finishing some 13 lengths behind the top two. Off at 11-1, he paid $3.60 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.54, 45.46, 1:10.13 and 1:22.70.

It is a huge opportunity to bring Google’s resources to bear as far as the growth and development of the internet in Africa (and hopefully a reminder of why I went to law school in the first place!).”Jon Gosier, Director of Product for SwiftRiver at Ushahidi told us he thinks Okolloh might help make Google’s actions on the continent more coherent. “Google Africa hasn’t really been as focused as it has been in other parts of the world.
