Portlaoise at their ease in 19-point win over Portarlington

Portlaoise at their ease in 19-point win over Portarlington

first_img By Steven Miller – 21st April 2018 Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Brian McCormack was part of the Portlaoise team Portlaoise 4-15 Portarlington 0-8Laois Shopping Centre ACFL Division 1AIt’s only April and it’s only the league but the gap between Portlaoise and the rest of the county is as wide as ever if the evidence of their 19-point win over Portarlington in Rathleague is anything to go by.Port enjoyed their best season in years in 2017 and by reaching their first senior semi-final since 2002 and following it up by claiming the minor and U-21 titles, they can justifiably be regarded as the second best team in Laois with an exciting and improving young team.But they’ve still quite a bit to go following this chastening defeat. While neither side were at full strength, both fielded decent teams.Port played with the wind in the opening half and competed relatively well, but Portlaoise were always on top and were creating scoring chances with alarming ease.Ronan Coffey put Port into an early lead but points from Conor Boyle, John Kavanagh and Gareth Dillon got The Town into a lead they’d never surrender.Adam Ryan and Coffey pointed either side of a Paul Cahillane point but another from Conor Boyle and then a goal from Cahillane had Portlaoise 1-5 to 0-3 clear.They exhanged points from there to the end of the half with Colin Finn – who kicked three points in total from centre-back – Cahillane and Kieran Lillis all on target for Portlaoise and Coffey, Ryan and Colm Murphy scoring for Port.

However, he said educating the public on the work being done is as important as the work itself.“Neighborhood groups are concerned about public safety and homelessness, and the City’s efforts have been extensive, but the community doesn’t hear about all of these great efforts and the ingenuity or strategies behind them,” he said. Morena wants to change how the City disseminates information. Community members shouldn’t feel that they have to pull information out of their local government, he said.“I can’t wait to work with our elected (officials) and talented staff to create a modern communication system to share our progress, hopes and dreams,” he said. “It’s going to take us really defining how and where people receive information.”Councilmember Ted Winterer said many other Councilmembers are interested in improving communication with residents, especially in the wake of a recent citywide survey that revealed that about 60 percent of residents get their local news from social media.“We’re all well aware that there’s a lot of misinformation on social media distributed as fact,” Winterer said. “That’s a big challenge for us … we need to make people understand they need to go to source documents to find facts.”Morena’s own hopes and dreams include working toward ending homelessness, building more housing while preserving the character of the city’s neighborhoods and changing the way Santa Monicans think about public transit.He wants to approach homelessness as a regional issue and make connections with groups that have been receiving funding from Measure H to provide homelessness services. Morena said his best friend grew up in Santa Monica but now sleeps across the border unsheltered in Venice, which he believes exemplifies why local governments must work together to house homeless individuals.Building more housing and more affordable housing will be a part of addressing the problem, Morena said, and is something he thinks Santa Monicans can agree on despite their differing views on development. “I want to ensure people of all economic levels can live here, and respecting the integrity of the neighborhoods is paramount,” he said. “I think development is an incredibly delicate balance. I hope to bridge and unify some of the people with dissenting opinions.”Morena also said he doesn’t think stopping development is a solution to improving traffic. Instead, he believes Santa Monica should focus on taking cars off the road by encouraging people to use public transit.“The development that’s happened is already here and we’re getting traffic as a byproduct,” he said. “We have to change how people think about moving about town.”What connects all of Morena’s priorities, he said, is promoting a feeling of unity in Santa Monica. He said he believes representing his generation in city government – Morena is 40 – will encourage other communities that haven’t “been at the table” before to participate as well.“I think he’ll be a strong, independent voice and a breath of fresh air,” Winterer said.Morena hopes to stay above the divisiveness that can characterize local politics, he said.“I’m not a part of that animosity and I don’t intend to be,” he said. “It holds you back from what you’re able to accomplish.” December 14, 2018 at 11:20 PM last_img read more

Wu Ashun (66) builds 3-shot lead at KLM Open

first_imgTHE HAGUE, Netherlands – Wu Ashun of China birdied his first two holes Friday to set up a 5-under 66 and take a three-shot lead into the weekend at the KLM Open. Ashun’s round followed a bogey-free 64 on Thursday and put him ahead of Englishman Jonathan Thomson, who had 10 birdies and three bogeys on his way to a 36-hole total of 133 at The Dutch in Spijk. Thomson reeled off seven birdies as he started on the back nine to match the lowest nine-hole score of the European Tour season, level with the 28 shot by Suttijet Kooratanapisan’s at the AfrAsia Bank Mauritius Open. David Drysdale of Scotland and Ashun’s countryman Haotong Li were tied for third on 8-under, one shot behind Thomson.last_img

NEWS SCAN: Lassa fever in Nigeria, dengue in Hawaii, NDM-1 in water, imported measles, Listeria cluster, E coli death, H1N1 online tracking

first_imgApr 7, 2011Nigerian physicians hit by Lassa feverA physician at a medical center in Nigeria recently died of Lassa fever, and two other physicians from the same center are being treated for the disease, the Nigerian Tribune reported today. The doctors, working at the Federal Medical Centre in Yola, Adamawa state, experienced symptoms of a viral hemorrhagic fever in early March after treating a patient, said Dr. Aliyu Danburam, chief medical director there. All three were referred to the Irrua Specialist Medical Centre for the Control of Tropical and Infectious Diseases, where the disease was confirmed. One of the patients died there, and the other two were still being treated, the story said. Because of the highly infectious nature of Lassa fever, the Nigerian health ministry’s epidemiology unit set up a surveillance squad at the Yola medical center to screen all cases that could possibly be linked to the outbreak, Danburam reported. The story did not specify whether any other cases have been confirmed.Dengue in Hawaii may have spread to MauiHawaii’s health department is investigating two suspected dengue cases in East Maui, The Maui News reported today. Maui County officials said they were awaiting confirmation from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and did not give details on the two patients or the specific area. The county has not seen any cases since late 2001 to spring 2002, when at least 20 people contracted the mosquito-borne disease, which leads to fever, severe headaches, a rash, and eye, joint, and muscle pain. Four locally acquired cases were recently confirmed on the island of Oahu. All of those patients have recovered.Apr 7 Maui News storyTests detect NDM-1 in New Delhi waterNDM-1, an enzyme that can make gram-negative bacteria resistant to many antibiotics, has been detected in drinking and seepage water in New Delhi, India, where the bacteria that produce the enzyme are thought to have originated. The findings appear today in an early online edition of Lancet Infectious Diseases. Isolates that contain NDM-1, which stands for New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase 1, are thought to have first spread to the United Kingdom and other countries via people traveling to India for medical treatment. In the current study, researchers from Cardiff University in Wales collected drinking water samples and water from street pools or rivulets from sites around New Dehli from Sep 26 to Oct 10, 2010. They compared them with sewage effluent samples from Cardiff’s waste water treatment system. Using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and DNA testing, they detected the NDM-1 gene in 2 of 50 drinking water samples and 51 of 171 seepage samples. They didn’t find it in any Cardiff water samples. They cultured bacteria containing NDM-1 from 2 water samples and 12 seepage samples, including 11 species that had not been linked to NDM-1 before. The researchers said the findings have public health implications for the New Delhi population and establish the importance of environmental NDM-1 sampling in international surveillance activities.Apr 7 Lancet Infect Dis abstractApr 6 EurekAlert press releaseCDC tracks measles spike in young travelersThe US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today that it has already received seven reports of imported measles in infants and young toddlers who traveled overseas, which prompted a reminder for parents to have their children immunized with measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine before taking overseas trips. The description of the seven cases, which appeared today in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), also notes that four of the children ages 6 months to 23 months were hospitalized, and in some instances the diagnosis was delayed or made after the child recovered. None of the children had been vaccinated, though all were eligible to receive it. Although the MMR vaccine usually isn’t routinely given until children are 12 months old, experts recommend that children ages 6 to 11 months who will travel abroad should receive one dose, with a two-dose follow-up scheduled after their first birthday. In its review of measles data from 2001 to 2010, the CDC said it typically receives reports of three to seven imported measles cases each year in young children. The CDC said the cases highlight the importance of clinicians reviewing vaccination history in those who will be traveling abroad and considering measles when patients with a recent travel history outside the United States have a febrile rash illness.Apr 8 MMWR reportListeriosis cluster linked to hog head cheesePublic health officials from the CDC and Louisiana today reported the first listeriosis outbreak linked to hog head cheese, according to findings described in MMWR. During the first half of 2010, the Louisiana Office of Public Health detected a cluster of 14 invasive listeriosis cases, 8 of which were the same serotype and had the same genetic fingerprint. An epidemiologic investigation focusing on 4 patients revealed that 3 had eaten hog head cheese, a ready-to-eat meat jelly made from swine heads and feet. The probe also found that they had bought the single brand at two different grocery stores. Laboratory officials cultured the outbreak strain from unopened product samples. Environmental samples obtained from the producer were also positive for the outbreak strain, which led investigators to suggest that persistent contamination at the plant was the source of the illnesses. The investigators said that a standardized questionnaire specific for Listeria monocytogenes helped identify an uncommon food that was common among the patients. They also added that the outbreak wasn’t surprising, given that hog head cheese fits the profile of a ready-to-eat deli meat that poses known risks, especially to older people, pregnant woman, and those with chronic health conditions.Apr 8 MMWR reportQuebec E coli death may be linked to recalled walnutsQuebec’s health ministry said today that a providence resident has died from an Escherichia coli infection that may be related to other illnesses with links to walnuts, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reported. A health ministry spokesperson said the patient had underlying medical conditions but released no other details. So far the E coli O157:H7 outbreak has sickened 13 Canadians, including 9 from Quebec, according to an earlier report from the Public Health Agency of Canada. The illnesses prompted a recall of packaged and bulk walnuts distributed by Amira Enterprises, Inc, based in Quebec. The walnuts were imported from the United States, according to a recall advisory from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.Apr 7 CBC storyWeb-based surveillance system panned for pandemic H1N1A Web-based surveillance system designed by Johns Hopkins and Department of Defense researchers gathered solid data but was not useful for detecting or monitoring pandemic 2009 H1N1 influenza, according to an assessment in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) today. Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the Electronic Surveillance System for the Early Notification of Community-Based Epidemics (ESSENCE) version 2 “demonstrated strengths in data quality, flexibility, and representativeness” but resulted in a 1- to 3-day delay in tracking illness, lacked sensitivity (reported as 71.4%), and had only a 31.8% predictive value positive (PVP) rating for identifying influenza-like illness (ILI). The authors said the system did not detect the outbreak soon enough to slow its spread. They suggest: “More frequent Internet data transmissions from the clinics to the ESSENCE server could improve timeliness, and PVP could be enhanced by including measured body temperature in the ESSENCE ILI case definition.”Apr 8 MMWR reportlast_img read more

Don Bland tames Rayong Green Valley

Don Bland tames Rayong Green Valley

first_imgPSC Golf from The Golf Club Sports Bar & GrillMonday, August 1, Rayong Green Valley – Stableford1st Don Bland (4) 41 pts 2nd John Emmerson (9) 39 pts (cb)3rd Dan Avon (14) 39 pts4th Noel Pittard (4) 37 pts Our regular Monday fixture was populated with 18 of Pattaya’s finest clubbers, which for low season was a decent turnout. The skies above were “fontoc boy-boy” as the locals say and by the time we got to the course it had turned out beautiful. Right now, Green Valley is in tip-top shape so there should be no excuses for not shooting well here.The Australians were out here in full force and being the tough competitors they are, we were in for a battle royal as Noel, Don, Steve and resident Sugar Ray were our mates representing the Southern Hemisphere.Don Bland.As it turned out, Don Bland was anything but and turned in his card with a big 41 circled at the top. Well played Don – and also good luck to you and Noel up in Siam Reap as well.John Emmerson beat Don Avon on count back with 39 as Noel Pittard just missed out with his 37, good but not quite enough Noel!Wednesday, August 3, Phoenix – Stableford1st Peter Fagerlund (23) 40 pts2nd Chris Parr (19) 35 pts3rd Roger Verville (12) 33 ptsIt is so nice to hop over to a course in less than 30 minutes and that is one huge benefit of Phoenix. After the recent rains and wind the course was a little leafy but the greens-keeping staff were out taking care of the carnage. The heat was a factor today and my fellow walkers were starting to question the decision to go cartless on the day. We survived, but next time a buggy would be in order for sure.Scandie visitor Peter Fagerlund was sensible and took the cart option and maybe it helped him to score the 40 points to be our winner on the day. Peter is a big lad and his game should improve quickly with a few lessons, so watch out!Chris Parr is a regular visitor to Pattaya from upcountry and a recent addition to The Golf Club gang and we are glad to have Chris on board.  Chris was kind enough to get in a round of drinks before heading out to the airport. We quickly headed back to The Golf Club for our Wednesday Steak Night and a few bevvies, of course.Friday, August 5, Treasure Hill – Stableford1st Steve Grant (9) 35 pts2nd Henry O’Brien (19) 32 pts3rd David Shelton (7) 27 ptsAfter last month’s PSC Monthly Medal here we just had to come back. Apparently the Saha Group recently bought the course and we observed a great deal of work being done by several dozen staff. There are lots of new but mature tree plantings, improved or new cart paths and decorative features as well being attended to. The only thing I would attack straight away is the 18th green. Get your approach shot close to the pin and it won’t be an issue! I am sure this repair is on their agenda, so be patient, it will be worth the wait.There is great camaraderie on a trip like this one to Soi Dao.The course was designed by Yoshikazu Kato who also designed the legendary Blue Canyon in Phuket and Kabinburi Sport Club where we will be on our road trip in early September. Treasure Hill is a great track and if you have not played here you really should put it on your list.You can’t make many mistakes on this course and expect to win, and Steve Grant did little wrong on the day. The greens proved faster than they looked but not a problem for Mr. Grant.Someone who shall go unmentioned took a choked down driver on the 215yd 2nd par 3 and stuck it to 8 feet, then sunk the birdie putt only to find out we did not have a 2’s comp on the day.  No, it wasn’t Seamless this time, he was up at Soi Dao.We returned Friday afternoon to The Golf Club in a mere 40 minutes door-to-door, well worth the trip and good luck to Treasure Hill in their improvements to this great course.August 2 – 4, Soi Dao Highlands Road TripIt was a busy week for The Golf Club as in addition to our Pattaya schedule, we also ventured out once again to Soi Dao for the monthly road trip. Teacher Jez was the main instigator for this outing and had to get another trip in before school starts. It turned out to be a good idea.Timing is everything and after loads of rain last week, the ground was moist and springy but not a drop touched a head on the trip as the clouds lifted to a beautiful week in the mountains. The hills were so alive you could almost hear Julie Andrews!There is great camaraderie on a trip like this and everyone pitches in with wine and cheese, nibbles for après golf, and a few litres of quality spirits.It was so good to see Papa Mikey Craighead back with us to show Soi Dao rookie Dale Shier the lay of the land on this Dennis Griffiths (Phoenix, Thai C.C.) designed layout. Soi Dao is a special place and this trip was very special for Roger Kohler and Bob Newell as they glided along over the three day tour with some of their best golf seen recently to demolish the competition. Well played lads!Tour Tip: Soi Dao Highlands has a low season special of 2,200 baht for a single golfer that includes 2 days unlimited golf green fees from check-in and 1 night hotel room with breakfast, a great deal at a great course.Thanks to all for participating in this week’s fixtures, and don’t forget to check us out on facebook/golfclubpattaya for updates, musings, and scandals in general.The Golf Club is located on Soi LK Metro, off Soi Buakhao and Soi Diana junction.
