first_img Anderson has been an offensive stalwart for years now, a central part to their attack, their quiet 100-RBI man. But for all those many moments when he was so brilliant, there were always those who would call into question his hustle, his desire, his effort. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 In the division series opener against the Yankees, a shallow-playing Anderson saw a Robinson Cano drive sail over his head for a three-run double that provided all the runs New York would need. At proper depth, and most likely with a solid jump, many felt it was a ball that should have been caught. He left after the game without speaking to the media. Now it is Friday in New York in Game 3, left-hander Randy Johnson on the mound, two outs, two on and the left-handed Anderson at the plate. An Anderson who was 3-for-18 lifetime against Johnson. Anderson just jumped on a 1-1 pitch and drilled it out to right for the three-run homer in the first inning and a 3-0 Angels lead. Two innings later, he tripled off Johnson. Then there was a run-scoring single in the seventh. “I just took advantage of some pitches that were left out over the plate,” Anderson said. The former Kennedy High of Granada Hills standout, who had four hits and five RBI in the 11-7 win, said this in a postgame press conference that he clearly would rather have missed. Yesterday’s goat, today’s hero; it’s a familiar baseball story. But just as familiar is Anderson’s dislike for the media. When asked if he’d seen anything in the way Johnson was pitching to others that tipped him on how to attack the left-hander Friday, Anderson all but dressed down the media member. “You’ve got to be a little more specific on what you’re asking,” he said. “You’re kind of vague.” The question was repeated, and Anderson said: “We faced him a couple of times this year and we have a good idea what he’s doing up there.” Some guys almost can’t enjoy success. Anderson batted third in the two games at Anaheim, but was moved back to fifth against Johnson. Anderson shrugged at the change. “I don’t feel pressure playing baseball,” he said. “I really don’t pay attention to where I hit in the lineup. “Obviously I want to be in the middle of the order because that’s where I’ve been most of my career. But that’s the manager’s decision.” The Angels’ all-time leader in hits and RBI battled a bad back throughout much of the second half, but still finished with 17 home runs and 96 RBI. There have been a lot of big hits in his 11-year career, yet somehow always more questions. A few he mostly answers with his bat. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgOver 1000 people braved the cold weather in the Twin Towns on Saturday to take part in the ‘Save Our St Joseph’s Hospital march’ in protest at what they say is Government inaction on the premises. Chairman of the group, Fr John Joe Duffy, has accused the HSE and the Government of making false promises to locals over the facility.On Friday, the HSE has again emphasised its commitment to the upgrade of St Joseph’s Community Hospital in Stranorlar. Following the march, Fr Duffy said: “The Call went out to put shoe leather onto the streets and over 1000 people responded. We are not going away.“Stop the Spin, stop the political lies, it is time to put the spades into the ground and secure St. Josephs for future generations.“Act now, stop the bluff, stop the spin. It is time for the government to stand up and be counted for St. Josephs, time for the government to put the plans and funding on the table and the spade into the ground.“The government needs to stop ducking and diving and stop getting the HSE to issue last-minute concoctions of words in attempts to hoodwink the people,” he added. “Because our people will not be hoodwinked nor will they any longer stand for the nonsense that they have thrown at us over the last three years and more.“Time to immediately restore staffing levels, to restore beds, to restore services, to practice what they preach about caring for elderly and vulnerable people in their own communities.“No more Chinese whispers. It is time for honesty and action.”  Hundreds rally in Twin Towns for St Joseph’s Hospital protest – Pic Special was last modified: March 24th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:St Joseph’s Hospitaltwin townslast_img read more

first_imgRiaan Manser and Vasti Geldenhuys did the unthinkable in a 133-day quest across 10 765 kilometres of ocean. (Images: Riaan Manser) • Karen Jurgens Riaan Manser Adventure +27 021 820 7373 pr@riaanmanser.com • Solms-Delta lives a transformation ethos • Cape Town’s Open Streets bring the people out to play • Life’s a beach in South Africa • Travel and tourism boom for South Africa • Durbs on list for New7Wonder CitiesRomaana NaidooSouth African “oar-some” couple, Riaan Manser and Vasti Geldenhuys, did the unthinkable when they took their Spirit of Madiba on an unforgettable adventure.Never in her wildest dreams did Geldenhuys think that a simple request for a New York holiday would result in a 133-day quest across 10 765 kilometres of ocean. Manser said he would take her, but that they were going to go his way – by rowing boat. Geldenhuys embraced his idea, through naivety, and the rest is literally history.Braving torrential storms, blistered hands and food poisoning, the couple tested their 14-year relationship as they rowed from Morocco to Manhattan in a journey that became known as TakeMe2NY. They arrived in New York on Friday night, 20 June, South African time.They are the first people to have rowed from mainland Africa to mainland United States. Geldenhuys also became the first woman from the African continent to have rowed across any ocean.Manser explained that when they landed in Morocco they heard about the death of Nelson Mandela and as a small token of gratitude to what he had meant in their lives, they named their boat Spirit of Madiba. They first headed to the Canary Islands and then down to Cape Verde before they hit Barbados. According to Manser’s support team, there was “no support boat, no ablution facilities, no luxury; just Riaan, Vasti, their combined determination and a 7m rowing boat with their supplies”.Fishing for foodThe couple intended to row 20 hours a day, taking two hourly shifts at a time. With the huge amount of calories they were burning daily, they replenished with high-calorie freeze dried foods. Other nourishment was supplied by the ocean, and the couple had to catch their own food.Manser, an adventure junky, and Geldenhuys, a lawyer, mentally and physically prepared for their gruelling expedition by training daily on a stationary rowing machine and spinning bike. This, accompanied by an extensive knowledge of the Atlantic Ocean and their vessel, which became their new home, helped them ahead of the voyage.“Although we are both very active, taking part in mountain bike races, jogging and swimming, we didn’t do endurance training,” Manser said. “The most difficult part of this trip was not the physical rowing, which was already excruciating on our bodies, but more the mental torture this trip takes you through. You have to constantly convince yourself it is worth it, or that it is going to be worth it. It’s very monotonous and with the same view every day for four-and-a-half months, it’s gruelling mentally.”Asked how he was able to persuade his fiancée to take the trip, he answered that she “wanted to do something great in her life, something she could be proud of”.They learned everything there was to know about each other on the expedition. “You spend a lot of time together. We have been in a relationship for more than 14 years so we know each other pretty well, but one thing we have learned is that arguing about things really doesn’t get you anywhere, that you have to be patient with each other. Being right is not always being happy.” They arrived in New York on Friday night, 20 June, South African time.You gotta wannaAs for how they managed on such a small boat, Manser said: “We often joked about it. We said ‘you gotto wanna’. You got to want to. When times were tough, this escalated to ‘you gotto.’ We knew our journey would not be complete until we reached our destination, New York. So every minute spent on that small space was with a goal. Getting across the Atlantic or getting to mainland USA in Miami would not have been good enough. Getting to New York was our goal.“We also realised that you don’t need much space. The ‘bathroom’ was outside and the kitchen, bedroom, living room, closet etc was our 1.5m by 1.5m space inside the cabin.”He explained: “The worst times were when our boat was capsized by a 7m wave while we were rowing.” Geldenhuys was stuck underneath the boat; Manser was thrown into the ocean and had to swim back to the boat. Another time, Manser drifted away from the boat while trying to film. There was no way the boat could have been stopped or turned, so he had to grab on to a fishing line and be reeled in.“The 900-foot container ships bearing down on us, and with some near misses, provided for some near heart-stopping moments.”Adventure junkyManser is no stranger to adventure. He has cycled 37 000 kilometres through 34 countries, covering the perimeter of Africa. This achievement earned him the title Out There Adventurer of the Year 2006 and led to his book, Around Africa on my Bicycle.TakeMe2NY was his fourth world-first expedition. In July 2009, Manser paddled 5 000 kilometres in 11 months in a kayak around Madagascar. He was alone and unaided. During this adventure, he was imprisoned and held captive by rebels.His travels then took him to Iceland, where he paddled 2 300 kilometres around Iceland with Dan Skinstad in a double sea-kayak over a five month period in March 2011. “We always knew that we would have delays during the winter due to bad weather, but we could never have predicted how long we would be delayed,” Manser explained.He has also climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and descended to Lake Assal, the highest and lowest points on the continent. The Explorer’s Club in New York – whose members include the first man to reach the North Pole, the first to reach the South Pole, the top of Everest, the deepest point in the ocean and the first man on the moon – extended a special invitation to Manser to speak before its illustrious organisation.last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It’s dry and we harvested early, so there is time to kill and diesel is cheap. I called Sjoerd Duiker, Soil management specialist at PennState on this one. He is a graduate of OSU and works close enough to understand our concerns. He supplied us with this for the mid-October C.O.R.N. newsletter: http://corn.osu.edu/c.o.r.n.-newsletter#3. Generally his message is: don’t overdo it.When compaction has been caused, remedial action may be needed. This is especially the case if ruts have been created. If no ruts are seen it is probably not necessary to do tillage. Instead plant a cover crop to use the living root system to alleviate compaction.Ruts need to be smoothed out to be able to plant the next crop successfully, however. If ruts are uniformly distributed across the whole field, some type of tillage may need to be done on the whole field. In many cases, however, ruts are localized and only need localized repair.Remember the negative consequences of tillage.It will be necessary to till deeper than the depth of compaction. Shallow “vertical tillage” tools that only do tillage in the top four inches will not be sufficient to manage soil compaction.Very tough shanks are needed that will penetrate instead of bounce on top of the compacted layer. New subsoilers can do maximum fracturing without doing much surface disturbance with straight or bent-leg shanks. Parabolic shanks do much more surface disturbance and will need more secondary tillage for seedbed preparation and are therefore not preferred.Deep tillage may be what you could use in the fall, and then come back in the spring to smooth the field up with a field cultivator or disk harrow.Deep tillage should fracture the soil and it therefore needs to be performed in relatively dry soil.Deep tillage can be performed in a living cover crop in the spring if you use the modern, low-disturbance subsoilers. So let subsoiling not deter you from planting a cover crop.The more tillage you do, however, the more you set yourself up for increased compaction problems in the future.last_img read more

first_imgSityodtong told The Associated Press on Wednesday that ONE Championship plans to stage up to 30 events in 2018 and will financially compete to sign the world’s best fighters, all while concentrating on its primary goal of being Asia’s dominant MMA brand. To that mission, Sityodtong intends to expand the Singapore-based promotion’s reach next year into Japan, South Korea and eventually India.“Already we’re the largest martial arts organization in the history of Asia,” Sityodtong said. “All the pieces suggest that we have a big, big runway of growth ahead of us and that we’re just scratching the surface of our potential.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsThe growth is already visible: In the final five months of 2017 alone, ONE Championship has 11 scheduled shows spread among Macau, Malaysia, China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Myanmar.After doing 18 events this year, Sityodtong projects 24 to 30 shows for 2018. The increase will include aggressive expansion into China, where ONE Championship is already staging events this year in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, just north of Hong Kong.

Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netONE Championship has secured a major equity investment from venture capital firm Sequoia India and investment firm Mission Holdings, positioning the ascendant mixed martial arts promotion to increase its presence throughout Asia.The investment means ONE Championship has raised over $100 million in total capital less than six years after its first show, according to Chatri Sityodtong, the promotion’s chairman and CEO.ADVERTISEMENT Trump strips away truth with hunky topless photo tweet FEU Auditorium’s 70th year celebrated with FEU Theater Guild’s ‘The Dreamweavers’ Lacson: SEA Games fund put in foundation like ‘Napoles case’ National Coffee Research Development and Extension Center brews the 2nd National Coffee Education Congress Helicopter carrying WWE exec makes emergency ocean landing Church, environmentalists ask DENR to revoke ECC of Quezon province coal plant Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Hotel says PH coach apologized for ‘kikiam for breakfast’ claimcenter_img LATEST STORIES MOST READ ONE Championship already claimed it was the largest sports media property in Asia before the latest round of investment, with video programming seen in 128 countries and live shows attracting large crowds throughout the Eastern hemisphere. The promotion received capital last year from Heliconia Capital Management, which is owned by Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund.Sityodtong is a Harvard-educated entrepreneur and a lifelong martial artist who left a lucrative career as a hedge fund manager to start ONE Championship as a showcase for homegrown Asian martial artists. He is looking forward to utilizing Sequoia’s expertise on business expansion while he plots his still-young promotion’s next moves.“It’s been a whirlwind,” Sityodtong said. “Just six years ago, this was a PowerPoint presentation, and now we arguably have the most blue chip shareholder base for any sports property out here in Asia.”The UFC, the sport’s richest and most prominent promotion, is striving to increase its presence in Asia with shows in Singapore, Japan and China this year. UFC fights are watched avidly across Asia, and the promotion has a healthy number of fighters under contract with Asian ethnicity, but Sityodtong claims ONE Championship already has “a massive lead over the UFC” in the fight for Asian fans.“We’re very focused on Asia, with Asian content that really resonates,” Sityodtong said. “So it’s very different scale. It would be like ONE Championship coming to America with Asian heroes and trying to ignite American audiences without any Americans on a show. It’s hard to do so.”ADVERTISEMENT Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo ONE Championship’s talent pool is Asian-focused, but not exclusive. Its champions include Filipino-American heavyweight Brandon Vera, Wisconsin-born welterweight Ben Askren, Brazilian light heavyweight Roger Gracie — and Angela Lee , the Canada-born, Hawaii-raised atomweight who has become one of the promotion’s most popular fighters.While ONE Championship’s roster of fighters probably doesn’t measure up to the UFC’s group on pure overall talent, Sityodtong’s promotion is about much more than blood and belts. Although he has the money to bid for top free-agent fighters alongside the UFC and Bellator, Sityodtong is more interested in creating a product that suits ONE Championship’s conception of the Asian audience’s sensibilities.“The UFC has done a wonderful job in the Western hemisphere and deserve their success, but they focus primarily on the fighting, on the violence, on controversy, on disrespect,” Sityodtong said. “You know, Conor McGregor, in your face, F-this, F-that. We’ve chosen to focus on Asian values, and that kind of stuff just doesn’t fly. ONE Championship is a true celebration of martial arts, which is Asia’s greatest cultural treasure, and we want to honor the Asian values of humility, kindness, integrity, strength and discipline. So it’s a very different approach.”Sityodtong believes that cultivated, clean-cut image has the side benefit of attracting corporate sponsors and deep-pocketed partners — including Sequoia India, a branch of the famed U.S. venture capital firm that invested in Apple, Google, PayPal, YouTube, Instagram, Yahoo!, WhatsApp and countless other foundational technology companies.“ONE Championship has been a pioneer and major driving force of the martial arts industry in Asia, with surging popularity across major countries,” said Shailendra J Singh, the managing director of Sequoia Capital (India). “It has played an incredible role in nurturing local talent and developing local stars, led by a wonderful, mission-oriented team. We are delighted to join the team in their pursuit of developing the leading martial arts franchise for Asia’s 4.4 billion people.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss PLAY LIST 02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ View commentslast_img read more

first_imgzoom US Senators John McCain and Mike Lee have introduced legislation that would permanently exempt Puerto Rico from the Jones Act to aid recovery efforts in the wake of Hurricane Maria and encourage long-term economic growth.While the Trump administration granted a 10-day Jones Act waiver for Puerto Rico on September 28, the senators’ legislation, introduced the same day, would provide Puerto Rico with “the permanent, sustainable relief it needs to rebuild.”“While I welcome the Trump administration’s Jones Act waiver for Puerto Rico, this short-term, 10-day exemption is insufficient to help the people of Puerto Rico recover and rebuild from Hurricane Maria,” Senator McCain said.“Our legislation would permanently exempt Puerto Rico from the Jones Act, an antiquated, protectionist law that has driven up costs and crippled Puerto Rico’s economy. For years, I have fought to fully repeal the Jones Act, which has long outlived its purpose to the benefit of special interests. It’s time for Congress to take action, end this injustice, and help our fellow citizens in this time of need.”The Jones Act requires that all goods shipped between waterborne ports of the United States be carried by vessels built in the US and owned and operated by Americans. Shipping costs from the US mainland to Puerto Rico have been estimated to be twice as much as from neighboring foreign islands.last_img read more
