Woods improves in final round at Masters, welcomes break

first_imgTiger Woods hits a drive on the third hole during the fourth round at the Masters golf tournament Sunday, April 8, 2018, in Augusta, Ga. (AP Photo/Charlie Riedel)AUGUSTA, Ga. — Tiger Woods nearly aced a hole and made his lone eagle of the week.The four-time Masters champion somewhat returned to form at Augusta National. It was just a few days too late to be more than an afterthought at golf’s first major.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ Truck driver killed in Davao del Sur road accident Woods is assured of moving back into the top 100 in the world, notable only because he was at No. 1,199 just over four months ago when he returned from yet another long layoff following a fourth back surgery.“I think things are progressing,” he said. “It was a little bit disappointing I didn’t hit my irons as well as I needed to for this particular week. You miss it just a touch here it gets magnified. And I just didn’t do a good enough job this week in that regard. But overall I’m five or six tournaments into it, to be able to compete out here and to score like I did, it feels good.”Woods plans to take some time off in April, maybe even putting the clubs in the closet for a few weeks to “kind of get away for a while.”“The run up to this event is pretty hard and pretty grueling,” said Woods, who finished 12th, tied for second and tied for fifth in three tournaments on the Florida Swing. “I pushed myself pretty hard to get ready. And I peaked at it four times over the course of my career, and it’s tiring.”He can take some solace in making six birdies or better in the final round — nearly as many as he made in the first three rounds combined.The best one came early Sunday. Woods nearly aced the 240-yard, par-3 fourth. His tee shot landed a few feet short of the flag, bounced a couple of times and then skirted by the left edge of the hole. He was left with a left-to-right-breaking 10-footer that he dropped in the left side of the cup.His eagle putt at the par-5 15th was even better. He drained a sweeping 30-footer after reaching the green in two.Those shots provided a brief snippet of what might have been at Augusta National had Woods had better control with his irons.Woods missed greens right and left, never really getting approach shots in the precise spots on treacherous greens. His errant ways left him starting a lot sooner than expected Sunday and finishing shortly after the leaders teed off.“My swing is slightly off,” he said. “I was pleased with the way I was able to drive it, but I just could not convert with my irons. I struggled with obviously controlling the shape. Can’t control the shape. Can’t control the distance. And it was one of those weeks in that regard.” No one laughing at Patrick Reed now after Masters win 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 MOST READ Green group flags ‘overkill’ use of plastic banderitas in Manila Sto.

The hiatus left him feeling nostalgic during his walk to the 18th green.“This is one of the greatest walks in all of golf,” Woods said afterward. “And I had missed it for the last couple of years. I hadn’t been able to play in it, so now I’m glad I’m competing in this tournament. And to face the challenges out there, I missed it. I really did. I missed playing out here.

Guyana gets US$8M for hinterland solar farm project

first_imgAs the Guyana Government continues with its “Green State” initiative, the country was given a significant boost to the tune of US$8 million to support the “Guyana Hinterland Programme: Solar PV Grid Tie Farms” which will see six communities benefitting.The project has been selected by the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) and the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) for funding via loan by ADFD, as part of the sixth cycle of the IRENA/ADFD Project Facility, the Public Infrastructure Ministry said.The announcement was made this week during the Ninth Session of the Assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), where Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson is representing Guyana.The Ministry noted that this announcement is timely as Guyana continues on its path towards a green economy.This project will receive a loan of US$8 million in the coming year to install 5.2 megawatt (MW) grid-connected solar PV systems in the hinterland communities of Bartica, Kwakwani, Lethem, Mahdia, Port Kaituma, and Matthew’s Ridge to reduce fossil fuel consumption and increase the reliability of electricity supply. This will see the provision of 24-hour sustained electricity generation in these communities.An estimated 34,700 people in the target areas, the Ministry said, will benefit and around 120 direct and indirect jobs are set to be created throughout the project’s lifecycle. Though this intervention is not expected to entirely replace diesel generation in the regions, the project will allow the utilities to annually reduce their diesel fuel consumption thereby allowing cost savings and a cleaner environment.The Hinterland Electrification Company Inc supported by the Guyana Energy Agency, submitted the project proposal to the ADFD Facility in February 2018 for consideration, and was subsequently shortlisted and awarded in January 2019.Guyana was one of only three countries selected to be awarded this funding out of a submission of 112 proposed projects to the ADFD Facility across the globe.According to the Director General of ADFD, His Excellency Mohammed Saif Al Suwaidi, on Saturday said, “we are proud of our result-oriented Facility that has supported replicable, scalable and potentially transformative renewable energy projects set to benefit communities and improve their living conditions. Today, at the Ninth Session of the IRENA Assembly, we are pleased to have selected truly impactful projects valued at US$31 million for the sixth cycle of financing awarded by the Facility.”In addition to Guyana, other countries awarded were Togo and Liberia.The IRENA/ADFD Project Facility helps emerging economies access low-cost capital for renewable energy projects to increase energy access, to improve livelihoods and advance sustainable development.Over recent months, Guyana has been turning to financiers from the Middle-East to fund critical projects here. In fact, last April Finance Minister Winston Jordan secured a US$900 million from the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), who committed the amount in financial and technical assistance for key development areas to assist with social and economic development.Meanwhile, back in September, Guyana tapped into the funding, drawing down US$20 million to finance the Guyana Power and Light (GPL) Utility Upgrade Programme, which is being co-financed by the Inter-American Development Bank and the European Union, to “effect a comprehensive turnaround of its electricity distribution” to ensure “sustainable and stable supply”.This entails the rehabilitation of 153 kilometres of GPL’s medium voltage and low voltage network and 6, 941 smart meters, including the associated transformers, service lines and distribution boxes. It will also fund the rehabilitation and extension of two 69/13.8KV substations at Kingston and Vreed-en-hoop including equipment switchgear, power transformers, rerouting of circuits distribution feeders and cable connections.last_img read more

Govt yet to provide comprehensive economic plan – Ali

first_imgAs budget approaches …makes recommendations for people- centred budgetWith Budget Day one day away, Parliamentary Opposition frontbencher and economist Irfaan Ali has rapped the Government for the continued absence of a comprehensive economic plan for Guyana, while proposing solutions of his own.According to Ali, Government’s management of the economy has been “ad hoc” and “counterproductive”. He has cited the Value Added Tax (VAT) measures that have been implemented to substantiate his contention.He noted that consumers’ disposable incomes were slashed with the introduction of over 200 tax measures, and added that operational costs skyrocketed with the introduction of VAT on electricity and water, and many zero-rated equipment used in the mining and agriculture sector attracted a hefty 14 per cent VAT.“As profit margin flattened, producers were forced to cut back on employment, hence prompting an inevitable downsize in operation. In the mining sector, the 100 per cent increase in tributors tax, coupled with deteriorated hinterland roads and high fuel prices, dealt a huge blow to both small and medium scale miners,” he said.According to Ali, the overall impact was devastating, and persons felt the squeeze at all levels of the economy. Indeed, he said, statistics from the Ministry of Finance have showed reduced declarations from the mining sector.According to last year’s Half-Year Report, the mining and quarrying sector contracted by 4.0 per cent during the first half of 2017. Gold production fell by 1.7 per cent to 317,096 ounces in the first half of 2017, compared to the same period in 2016, and this trend continued into 2018.“In the 2018 Mid-Year Report, low declaration of gold by small and medium scale miners was cited as one of the fundamental reasons for low growth in the economy,” Ali observed. “Over the past three years, Guyana has witnessed a major decline and contraction in four of its main traditional sectors.”Sugar, rice, bauxite and timber have all plummeted, he noted. “Hence one of the major causes for the country’s depleting foreign reserves and reduced private consumption,” Ali continued. “On the fiscal side, Government racked up a huge chunk in additional revenue. From 2015-2017, revenue increased by more than 26 per cent or $35B, and is expected to further increase by another $10B by end 2018.”WorryAccording to Ali, however, Government has not even put this additional revenue to good use. He pointed to increases in recurrent expenditure, including employment costs, and billions of dollars in increased spending on dietary, security, rental of buildings, and travelling.Expressing worry that Government’s handling of the fiscal regime would only get worse with the approaching fiscal year, he has urged Government to improve access to finance, and to repeal the increased tax measures, something that would ease the burden on the average citizen’s pocket.Among the measures Irfaan Ali is calling for is economic free zones, where businesses can operate with little to no taxation“Consumers need a stimulus in spending, and there is no better way than to reduce taxation. Not only will purchasing power increase, but consumers’ confidence and demand could receive a major boost,” he said.“A public-private partnership with commercial banks is critical, and could play a major role in offering cheap credit to small and medium size investors. The bureaucracy surrounding the access to small and medium size loans needs to be obliterated,” he opined.Ali noted that Central Government could address this and contribute meaningfully by ensuring commercial banks benefit from reduced lending rates from the Bank of Guyana.He also stressed the need for Government to make a concerted effort to diversify the economy.“Oil should be perceived as a bonus to our diversification programme, and not as the backbone of our economy. Budget 2019 should propound measures on how we will initiate the transformation our economy into a major economic power house,” he declared.“Some of the major projects that should receive unwavering attention should include the deep-water harbour, sustainable urban transport, Corentyne river bridge to Suriname, Lethem/Brazil road corridor, and the Georgetown bypass road.”Value added productionMoreover, Ali called for measures to drive value-added production within the forestry, agriculture and mining sectors to be outlined in the Finance Minister’s presentation. He noted that in the manufacturing sector, measures should be proposed to boost output and increase competitiveness.The economist also proposed that key input materials, such as raw materials, should be subsidised in the new budget. He suggested that special concessions should be offered that would create a level playing field between foreign companies and local firms, even as many continue to raise concerns about local content.Ali also proposed that Government announce the establishment of economic free zones, a term that designates areas in which companies can operate with little to no taxation. Economic free zones are usually meant to act as an economic stimulus. He was also hopeful of bold initiatives within the health sector.“Resuscitate the specialty hospital for advanced health care services for both Guyanese and international patients,” Ali suggested. “(Construct) a 100-bed ward at East Bank Demerara Regional Hospital; (construct) a new policlinic with X-ray, laboratories, and dental and eye services in different regions,” he also said.last_img read more

Alli double sends Mourinho’s Tottenham up to fifth

first_img0Shares0000Dele at the double: Dele Alli scored twice in Tottenham’s win over Bournemouth © AFP / Adrian DENNISLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 30 – Jose Mourinho’s perfect start as Tottenham manager stretched to three games as Spurs saw off Bournemouth 3-2 thanks to Dele Alli’s double on Saturday.Recovering Alli’s form of old was one of Mourinho’s stated priorities when taking charge last week and it is already paying dividends as the England international has now scored three times in three games under Mourinho. Moussa Sissoko scored his first goal for over two years in emphatic fashion on the volley from Son Heung-min’s cross to make it 3-0 before two goals from substitute Harry Wilson gave Bournemouth late hope of a dramatic comeback.“I’m happy with many things in the game and I think we have to improve other aspects, which is normal,” said Mourinho, whose side move up to fifth in the Premier League and within six points of a return to the top four.“We didn’t start well again, we didn’t finish well, but we played well for a long, long period in the game. I’m pleased with the victory, the points, the flair and the quality of the goals.”Often criticised for an overly negative approach throughout his managerial career, Mourinho has now overseen 16 goals in his first three games in charge.That includes conceding twice in all three games, but Mourinho’s risk in exposing his midfield with Alli playing so high just behind Harry Kane has also reaped plenty of reward in his first two weeks in charge.“For me Dele is not a midfield player, he is a player to play like he is playing, close to Harry. I think this is the best positon for him,” added Mourinho.“He’s the best thing that can happen to a coach because everybody speaks about him, you (media), the fans speak about him for the right reasons.“He’s playing really, really, really well and I could not ask any more from him.”– Spurs click into gear –Alli and Kane combined to create Spurs’ first chance after an unsettled start as Son scampered clear on goal, but the South Korean dragged his shot just wide.Son was more accurate with his next involvement as he was picked out perfectly by Toby Alderweireld’s pass in behind the Bournemouth defence and his cushioned touch left Alli with the simple task of tapping home his first goal of the match.Spurs then clicked into gear as Kane’s fiercely struck near-post shot was parried by Aaron Ramsdale, before Davinson Sanchez fired home only to be penalised for handling the ball as he controlled Sissoko’s shot.Five minutes into the second half the second goal did arrive for the hosts when another pinpoint long ball from Alderweireld was cushioned by Alli on his chest before he sat Ramsdale down and dinked the ball over the advancing goalkeeper.That was Alli’s fifth goal in his last nine games after a 21-match streak between January and October without one for club and country.And he should have had a hat-trick before the hour mark as Serge Aurier’s cross found its way through to him unmarked at the back post, but this time Alli’s curling finish was too high.Spurs’ third was the pick of the bunch as Son burst down the left and picked out Sissoko in the middle for the Frenchman to smash on the volley back across Ramsdale into the far corner.A first clean sheet of his reign would have rounded off a perfect day for Mourinho, but the Spurs defence was breached 17 minutes from time when set-piece specialist Wilson curled in a brilliant free-kick.Wilson struck again deep into stoppage time to set up a grandstand finish and Jan Vertonghen needed to make a last-ditch challenge to deny Callum Wilson an equaliser with the final attack of the game.0Shares0000(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

‘I wouldn’t mind David Moyes!’ – Celtic fan Rod Stewart tells talkSPORT it is time to change managers
