Wild wallops Green Valley

first_imgJohn Hendry and his Mate Graham Stitfall were over from Canarvon, but unfortunately Graham got a cracked rib and was playing in all sorts of pain.  Impressive perseverance and enjoy your trip up to Nong Khai mate and get some rest.There were some fantastic scores in today and four ‘2’s also.  When a score of 36 points from Gus George only gets fourth spot you know the field has scored well.  Third place went to Bruce McAdam with 37 points, second went to Dayle Shier with 40 and in first place was Kevin Wild who finished with a magic 46 points.  This is the second time in his golfing career that he has broken a hundred gross and he couldn’t stop smiling even as he rang the bell.The ‘2’s came from Dayle Shier, Mark Wood, Peter Lenoury and Bob Philp.Friday, August 9, Crystal Bay – StablefordWith six groups we set off from the bar a little early because sometimes travelling to Crystal Bay can get a bit hectic in the traffic and today was no exception.  The course was a little rough around the edges and the greens with different grass here and made for a good challenge.We said hello today to Brad Sproxton and goodbye to Bill Rogers, who was going home to Melbourne and hopefully coming back at Xmas.There was a three-way count back for second, third and fourth places, all on 35 points, which was headed by Brad Sproxton with 21 on the back nine while Darl White (18) took third and Eng Cotterell (17) fourth.  The winner meanwhile was the Capt. Bob with 38 points.There were two ‘2’s coming from Bob Philp and Owen Walkley.Note:  If you are looking for a game with some friendly golfers give Bob a call on 082 204 3411 or call into the bar we are just off Siam Country road looking straight down Lake Maprachan.  Also, if anybody is looking for a right hand R1 there is one for sale for 10.000 baht.  Just give Bob a call and he will put you in touch with the vendor.  He assures it hasn’t been used properly since he bought it! The Billabong Bar Golf SocietyWednesday, August 7, Green Valley – StablefordGreen Valley is our normal venue for Wednesday and with eight groups taking part it was a grand day out.  Everyone enjoyed themselves today as this course is manicured to perfection; the greens were top dressed the previous week and they are now as good as you will putt on anywhere.  The fairways on 17 and 18 have been scarified but that didn’t make any difference either. We were off to an early start and it was a four hour round for easy golf.  John Mills had a big night the night before and had to call it quits after eleven holes and call a taxi to take him home.  I don’t think the flu had anything to do with his condition, just a little over indulgence.Green Valley winners.last_img read more

Pako Ayestaran: “Dani Parejo is not able to compete”

first_img The player was not included in the Valencia squad to face Bournemouth, and his manager Pako Ayestaran has now provided the reason behind this decision. According to ‘Superdeporte’, the fact that Parejo remained in the team hotel was due to the fact that “at this moment in time, the player is not in the right spirit or mental state to compete.” The manager still remains optimistic that the midfielder can be an important factor in his team and describes him as “a great player”. The Basque coach hopes that the situation resolves itself, but leaves the ball in Parejo’s court. CEST Upd. at 22:42 04/08/2016 Ayestaran said he is hopeful that the footballer “takes the time to deal with the situation and takes on board everything we have told him.” The case of Dani Parejo is proving to be one of the summer soap operas of Spanish football. Regarding Parejo’s future, the Valencia boss confirmed that the club “is clear that they want him to be here and do not have any intention of selling him.” Sport ENlast_img read more

Nestlé’s Chocnology hits Google’s sweet spot

first_img“Maslow Reconstructed” by Orijin. The designer explains: “The Mayans were known for their triangular temples and chocolate. ‘Maslow Reconstructed’ breaks down the concept of hierarchy so that the triangles coincide and exist where there is no structure, reminding us that our greatest need lies in redefining our histories and who we are.” (Image: Melissa Jane Cook) MEDIA CONTACTS • Aaron Kohn Director: Museum of African Design +27 084 951 2060 RELATED ARTICLES • Driven by imagination • Steampunk chugs along in South Africa • Win cements South African artist’s ingenuity • Ndebele car art in New York • Art auction at Wits to dazzleMelissa Jane CookNestlé South Africa launched the world’s first 3D-printed chocolate exhibition, Chocnology, at the Museum of African Design, or MOAD, in Johannesburg’s Maboneng Precinct on 7 November.The event heralded the announcement of a new version of search giant Google’s Android operating system, KitKat. The exhibition featured some of South Africa’s greatest design talents, including Joey HIFI, Marchand Le Roux, Arno Kruger, Muti, Liron Segev, Rene Roussouw, Hans Fouche, Orijin and Am I Collective.“The coming together of two very different worlds – chocolate and technology – inspired the idea of creating chocolate artwork made possible through the use of innovative technology,” said Kevin Corlett, business executive manager for chocolates at Nestlé.3D-printed chocolateAll designs had to be created on the Android operating system using freely available 3D modelling tools. The designs were then printed out in chocolate by Hans Fouche of Fouche Chocolates, using a RepRap 3D printer, a free-standing desktop printer capable of printing its own plastic parts, to easily and cheaply replicate the machine. Fouche used to design Formula One cars, and now sells 3D-printed chocolates and cake décor from his Centurion-based business.Speaking to the htxt.africa website, Fouche said printing the sculptures was painstaking work. “For many of the complex designs, I had to print two layers at a time and then physically stick the sculptures together, otherwise they would have collapsed under their own weight during construction.”KitKat, or Android 4.4, is available for download onto some Android devices and Google’s flagship Nexus 5. The phone and operating system aim to display Google’s search and voice-recognition capabilities.A Google statement on the Android website says: “Android is the operating system that powers over one billion smartphones and tablets. Since these devices make our lives so sweet, each Android version is named after a dessert: Cupcake, Donut, Eclair, Froyo, Gingerbread, Honeycomb, Ice Cream Sandwich, and Jelly Bean. As everyone finds chocolate so tempting, we decided to name the next version of Android after one of our favourite chocolate treats, the KitKat®!”last_img read more

Sullinger Aaron Craft is always correcting our English

While Buford and Sullinger did not go into much detail and kept the comments lighthearted, apparently not wanting to give their teammate too hard of a time, Craft did not deny his teammates’ claims. In fact, he said he is a stickler for grammar because it will help his teammates when interacting with others in the future, but more simply, because poor grammar is a pet peeve of his. “I do correct their English because I’m trying to prepare them for a situation where they might be with someone important and they don’t want to have the same mistake there,” Craft said. “And it just bothers me when they use bad English. A lot.” The Buckeyes next play Kansas in the Final Four in New Orleans. Tip is set for Saturday at about 9 p.m. The winner will advance to the national championship game Monday. “He thinks he knows everything, for one,” Buford immediately responded, before leaning over to Craft and joking with him. Sullinger backed Buford up. “That’s on the court and off the court. As a point guard, you kind of need that on the court, but I mean, he’s always correcting our English and our grammar and all that good stuff,” he said. Ohio State sophomore point guard Aaron Craft is known for his ability to guard players on the court, but some of his teammates said he is just as adamant about guarding against their poor grammar off the court. When a reporter asked Craft if he had vices and faults, he replied, “I absolutely do,” before passing the question to two of his teammates – senior guard William Buford and sophomore forward Jared Sullinger. read more
