Wagner leads rain-suspended Safeway by 1

first_imgNAPA, Calif. – Johnson Wagner avoided all the drama, and the bogeys, and came in from the rain holding a one-shot lead in the Safeway Open. Wagner chipped in for birdie on No. 8 to start his climb from a three-shot deficit. He also rolled in a 30-foot birdie putt on No. 12. His best work before the third round was stopped by wet conditions, however, were the par saves. ”I was hanging on, hitting little quack hooks to the green but just somehow getting it up and down and making par putts, and really just trying to survive and make as many pars as I could.” He was at 15 under par and facing a short iron into the par-5 16th when a sponge roller couldn’t keep water off the front of the green, from where Scott Piercy was trying to play. Piercy, who had been in the lead since his opening 62 that set the course record at Silverado, was at 14 under. Also at 14 under was Patton Kizzire, who was facing a 20-foot birdie putt on the 17th green. The dark clouds drooping over the foothills in Napa Valley were the first signs of the peculiar day. Paul Casey, who was two shots behind when play was halted, was making up ground on Piercy on the front nine until his tee shot clipped a tree, ricocheted somewhere and was never found. Fans indicated that it shot across the fairway and went out of bounds into some trees, but that wasn’t his golf ball. Either way, the lost ball cost him two shots. Safeway Open: Articles, photos and videos Piercy, who started the third round with a three-shot lead, hit a tee shot that was stymied by a tree, and when he walked up to play his third shot, another tree trunk blocked his path. He played back to the fairway and hit a superb pitch-and-run to 2 feet to limit the damage to a bogey. The real pain was later. Piercy missed a 6-foot birdie putt that was downhill with a wicked right-to-left break. He took a step toward the hole on the ninth for his birdie putt only to stop in his tracks when it spun around and out of the cup. He missed a 4-foot birdie putt on No. 10. And then on the par-3 11th, he watched his tee shot hit the base of the pin and carom off the green. Through all his travails, he still was only one shot behind. ”I had a ball fly in the hole, I had a couple balls lip out,” Piercy said. ”Just maybe a little off today as far as the scoring. But I gave myself lots of chances , and even though I didn’t score well, I’m one back. I’m in a good spot.” The third round was to resume Sunday morning, and starting times for the final round already had been moved up because of more rain forecast for the afternoon. Martin Laird was 12 under through 16 holes. The best 54-hole scores posted belonged to Michael Kim (65) and Brendan Steele (67), who were at 11-under 205. Phil Mickelson hit a wild tee shot in the rain and made bogey on the par-5 closing hole for a third straight 69. He was six behind. No person was more responsible for the PGA Tour’s season-opening event having a decent chance to finish than JT Poston. In his first PGA Tour event, he holed an 8-foot birdie putt on his final hole for a 69 that moved the cut line to 3-under 141. That meant 70 players made the cut. His birdie knocked out 16 players. Piercy finished the second round Saturday morning with a 67 for a three-shot lead over Casey and Wagner. Casey had another lost ball late in the second round, but this turned out much better. He was about 30 seconds away from abandoning the search when a spectator held up a ball with the Nike swoosh and a blue pen dot and said, ”Is this it?” The spectator had found it in the hazard, so while Casey still had a one-shot penalty, he was able to drop away from the grandstands and save par for a 68. Casey birdied the par-3 second hole in the third round from 6 feet, and he was on the verge of getting within one shot of Piercy with a 4-foot birdie putt on the next hole until he missed it. Two holes later, the lost ball led to double bogey. Wagner, meanwhile, plodded along. He was short of the green on No. 8 when he chipped in for birdie, and his chip from short of the ninth green lipped out. He pulled within one shot of the lead with a short birdie on the 10th, and caught Piercy with a 30-foot birdie on the 12th. Piercy fell out of the lead with a bogey from just off the 14th green. Kizzire started the third round six shots behind and made up ground quickly with five birdies on the front nine, only one of them longer than 12 feet. He finally dropped back in the rain, three-putted the 14th when his birdie attempt rolled some 6 feet by.last_img read more

New Voltage Variable Attenuators from 400 MHz to 6 GHz

first_imgFairview Microwave has introduced a new line of Voltage Variable Attenuators (VVAs) that operate from 400 MHz to 6 GHz with a 60 dB attenuation range. RF components used in most communications systems today, require power levels to be precise in order to achieve peak performance. To achieve  this the attenuation needs to be fine-tuned in order to make-up for fluctuations in received signal levels or to best match the input power into a sensitive circuit. These new PIN diode-based VVAs deliver accurate control and broadband flatness, allowing the output level to be continuously adjusted by changing analog voltage on the input control line.  They are ideal for use with variable gain amplifiers, power level control, feed-forward amplifiers and automatic level control (ALC) circuits.The product line comprises of six models that support frequencies from 400 MHz to 18 GHz while providing a low insertion loss and a wide dynamic range. The modules display exceptional VSWR over all attenuation levels and CW input power is rated up to +23 dBm. Rugged coaxial packaged assemblies are designed to meet MIL-STD-202 environmental test conditions that include Humidity, Shock, and Vibration.The new voltage variable attenuators are in-stock and ready to ship from Fairview.

‘Superman’ supersized

first_imgSuperman is not just bigger than life to the citizens of Metropolis. In the IMAX 3-D version of “Superman Returns,” the Man of Steel is really big: eight stories high and 120 feet wide. On Tuesday, 57 IMAX theaters presented sold-out shows of “Superman” with four scenes totaling 20 minutes in 3-D. At regular theaters, there are no 3-D scenes. But at IMAX theaters, audiences are given a subtle signal at the bottom of the screen to put on special glasses when the 3-D portions, hand-picked by director Bryan Singer, are about to play. In all, 110 IMAX theaters worldwide are playing the 3-D version with 77 of those screens in the U.S. It’s the widest release ever for an IMAX film. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2“It’s the first time we’ve ever taken a live-action Hollywood picture and converted it into IMAX 3-D,” said Greg Foster, chairman and president of IMAX Filmed Entertainment. “It’s the perfect movie with the perfect director and the perfect partner in Warner Bros.” IMAX and Warner Bros. have collaborated on several films in recent years including on a 3-D version of the animated film “The Polar Express.” “We love working with Warner Bros. because they just get it,” Foster said. “They recognize that you need some showmanship to help differentiate your movie, and we really value the partnership we’ve built with them.” Warner Bros. Domestic Distribution President Dan Fellman said that with the IMAX “Superman,” the two companies are entering “uncharted waters.” “We’re really excited about it,” Fellman said. “It looks so good, and it’s a unique and fun experience. I think it’s going to give us a real additional boost at the box office.” The four 3-D sequences are: a shuttle airplane disaster sequence near the start of the movie; a sea rescue scene, a flashback when Superman’s alter ego, Clark Kent, realizes he has special powers for the first time; and finally, the movies’ finale. To be able to fit on the giant screen, the movies are remastered for the giant screen with IMAX’s DMR process, which allows a movie to be enlarged. Such Warner Bros. releases as “Express,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” “Batman Begins,” “The Matrix Reloaded” and the Harry Potter franchise have all seen multimillion-dollar boosts to their box office returns by being released, sometimes simultaneously, on giant IMAX screens. “Express” was off to a sluggish box office start a year ago but ended up being a major hit, partly due to the popularity of the IMAX 3-D version of the film, which grossed $45 million worldwide. “Polar” ended up grossing $160 million domestically. The IMAX version of “Batman Begins” contributed nearly $17 million to the $205 million gross and about $15 million to the $204.5 million earned by “Charlie.” Both films were 2-D releases. “What it does that is important and necessary for a business that in the last three years has had its box office challenges, is to up the ante a bit,” said Foster. “We’ve been able to constantly innovate and to provide moviegoers with an experience they can’t replicate at home.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Facebook to Integrate Microsoft Live Search by Fall

first_imgTags:#news#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market According to a comment made at Microsoft’s Analyst Day today, Microsoft and Facebook are preparing a search and advertising deal that would lead to the integration of Microsoft’s Live Search and search advertising into Facebook. Microsoft already provides ads on Facebook as part of a ‘strategic alliance’ and Microsoft holds a $240 million equity stake in the company. No information about the financial specifics of the deal were mentioned so far and it is not clear if this deal would be exclusive. Judging from the information available to us from the transcript of the call, Microsoft’s main reason for doing this deal is to get more people to know about Live Search. As part of that effort, Microsoft will also ink a distribution deal for its toolbar with HP.Also, according to Steve Ballmer, Microsoft will be providing an API to Facebook which will allow them to create a “rich search experience for the Facebook users and that is something that they will launch in the fall working with us. And it will carry both our web results, as well as our page search advertising.”This deal would mirror the one Google did with MySpace last year. In that deal, Google guaranteed MySpace $900 million in shared ad revenue for the next three years. However, it’s worth noting that the Google/MySpace deal has not been a huge success for Google. Users do not typically initiate a lot of searches from within social networks and monetizing advertising in social networks has turned out to be even hard.We are trying to confirm more details of this story and will update this post as we get more information.

IPL scandal: 12 players, 3 new teams named in Mudgal report

first_imgMore than a dozen players from five different Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises with “unverified” allegations against them have been named in the sealed Justice Mukul Mudgal report on corruption in the IPL, said a report in The Indian Express on Thursday.The 12-13 players belong to Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals, whose owners are already being investigated in the corruption scandal, and three other teams, said the report.The Express report said, “Besides the dozen-odd players from three teams, the confidential report has also listed allegations against at least three IPL office bearers, it is learnt… the report is also believed to contain allegations – based on recorded testimonies of witnesses – against owners of teams other than CSK and RR.”The Mudgal report, which was submitted to the apex court on February 10, had indicted Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan for being involved in ‘betting and passing on information’ regarding the Chennai Super Kings, of which he called himself ‘team principal’. While India Cements later tried to distance him from the franchise, the panel held that Gurunath was a ‘team official’ according to the definitions in the IPL code of conduct and operational rules. In addition, the panel raised questions over Srinivasan’s conflicts of interest, which it said could have “large scale ramifications” on cricket.It also wants further investigation into allegations of betting against Rajasthan Royals co-owners Raj Kundra and Shilpa Shetty. Perhaps the scariest aspect of the committee’s report was the links it found between the “players/administrators/politicians and declared terrorists and the underworld”.advertisementThe next date of hearing in the Supreme Court is April 16, the day the first phase of the seventh season of IPL begins in the UAE.last_img read more


first_imgThe little captain with the # 1 on his back was talking and pointing. Firing passes left and right, taking the big ruck just when it was needed, making the desperate touch when it was required, seeing the holes a bit clearer and a bit quicker than those around him, and he was doing every possible thing he could think of to secure victory for his team and lead them from the front… Unfortunately for QLD 12 Years Captain Ryley Jacks, his debut against the NSW Blues on Wednesday wasn’t a winning one, but it certainly was a memorable occasion for those watching the 12 year-old St. Lawrence’s College student strut his stuff, particularly his family. Ryley’s family are Touch royalty – with his Mum and Dad, former National Open Men’s and Women’s Captains Terry and Donna Jacks now prominent Junior coaches, and his three siblings Ryan, Rhys, and Michaela all playing the game and his grandmother who has spent the last 28 years supporting the family’s passion for Touch all involved in the game…. then there are his aunts and cousins and I’m sure if there was a Pet’s league, they’d have that covered too! Watching Ryley play this week has been like being trapped in a time tunnel for me – it was a `Field of Dreams’ moment. We all have heroes and role models, people we respect and admire, and aspire to be like – for me, as a young Touch player in the mid 80’s no one meant more to me than my two favourite players Terry and Donna Jack’s – Ryley’s Mum and Dad. Watching Ryley reminds me of all the great qualities that Donna and Terry possessed as players and people, and when you talk to this family you realise just how important it is to have a loving family and great role models in sport and in life. Terry was the first Inductee into the ATA’s Hall of Fame, having captained Qld and Australia from 1980 – 1988. He is widely acknowledged as the greatest player in the history of our sport and a lot of the skills, drills, and sub-units, patterns, and plays many of us use, have come in as add ons from what Terry developed in the early years. Terry’s cousin, and fellow ATA Hall of Fame member Peter Bell explains Terry’s contribution to the sport, “Terry was the first player to have a profile in our sport, because of the way he played, trained, and thought about the sport – he took people’s idea that Touch was a backyard sport, and turned around that thinking by being clinical in his approach – he realized the necessity to train and be fit for the game – he elicited a commitment out of others and that helped the sport evolve,” Bell said. Terry was `the money man’, `the go to guy’, whatever you want to call him – he was the piston that drove the engine and he did it like no one before him did and no one since him has. Terry began playing Touch in 1975 with Brisbane club side Dairy Cows as an 18 year old and after playing A grade Rugby Union with Brisbane Brothers, Terry settled on Touch, and at the age of 23 made his debut for Qld at the National championships in 1980. He played for Eagles from 1979 where he stayed, coached and played for a decade, and captained a team that would win four BMTA Premierships and produce a host of representative players. Terry rounded out his career by Captain/Coaching HK Sharks in the BMTA from 1989 -1993. His great knowledge of ball skills and the art of attacking football, led him to be appointed John Lang’s Skills Coach at Easts Rugby League Club in the early 90’s. Donna represented Qld and Australia from 1982 – 1988, captaining both Qld and Australia during her career and is held in the highest regard for her abilities as a pioneer in Middle play for women. Intelligent and skilful, extremely fit and with exceptional vision, she was a standout, very much ahead of her time. Donna began playing when she was 18 with Dairy Maids, then moved to Eagles Women’s team in 1983 and played there until 1988. Like Terry she linked up with South side Brisbane club HK Sharks and played from 1990 -1991 alongside her sister Tanya. Donna and Terry met at Donna’s first National Championships in 1982 and it was not long before these two like minds found a life long connection, which would result in a lasting, happy marriage. The 1986 ATA New Zealand tour was without a doubt the career highlight for both the Jacks as they created history by becoming the first husband and wife team to captain Australia on the same day. Terry reflects on the moment, breaking into a wide grin as if he’d just been given the news for the first time. “Over the moon, to have us both captaining Australia on the same day, was great, Karen Smith (NSW and Australian Women’s Captain and widely regarded as the best female player to have played the game) stood down as Captain for the game, and it was a real privilege for us both to share something so special together,” he said. “For sure, it is a great honour and to achieve it together is something we’ll never forget,” added Donna. The Jacks’ are genuinely thankful for their opportunities, modest, and appreciative of what the sport has given them. Satisfied that they’d achieved a lot in their time in the sport and with no regrets, they walked away to concentrate on building their family. The first of their four children Ryan was born in 1988, followed by Rhys (1990) then Ryley (1992) and finally a girl – Michaela (1994). Until 1996 The Jacks family were content to have a complete break from the sport and concentrate on the process of raising a family. However, when Ryan was 8 he decided he wanted to play Touch, so the family came back to the sport and have been involved ever since. Ryan represented Met East in Touch at Boys 15 Years level and recently played in a BMTA Open Men’s Team that played New Zealand on their recent SEQ Tour. Rhys made the Qld 12 Years merit team in 2001 then played in the 2002 Qld team. Ryley of course is the current 12 Years Boys Captain and Michaela played in the winning BMTA 2004 U 11 QTA Junior State Cup winning team. All the Jacks children are gifted in a variety of sports and Mum and Dad regularly do the rounds of Junior Rugby League, Union, Cricket, Swimming, and Hockey. For Ryley, there are many choices for the Sportsman of the Year at his school – he is equally talented in Rugby League and Cricket. The impressive thing about Ryley is his humility and respect for the game. He loves the game – he plays hard, he’s smart – he relies on skill and courage and puts a big value on his defence. Ryley takes responsibility for his actions and he always leads the way. No sweatbands, long shorts, and smart mouth for this kid. There’s no flashy feet and flick passes, he just loves the thrill of testing himself against the best. When I asked him how he felt about his Mum and Dad’s success he offered the following, “When they first told me when I was younger, I was like no way, that’s just Mum and Dad, but then we went to Touch and it’s like Mum and Dad own it – people really respect them and that makes me feel proud of them and makes me want to be like them,” Ryley said. “When they coach us, some kids go “Oh they’re just coaching `cause their kids play, but then after a session, they’re like your Dad’s really good – I think we should listen.” Ryley thinks his best attributes as a player are his skill level and the way he reads a game – “Mum and Dad both gave me that – they talk heaps on the field and they really taught me not to give up – we all are a bit like that – I need to work on my speed and just keep on working hard though.” Terry jokes that the whole family are Middles so the combination of himself and Donna did the kids no favours in the speed department, but both parents believe that the kids are fast enough to be competitive in the future if they want to continue playing the game. Both parents believe the game has certainly changed throughout their careers. “It’s changed, but not all changes are for the better, it’s faster, but the skill level in some areas has diminished somewhat – the defence is totally different and some of the roles people play are too specialised – I prefer developing all round skills in players – less role specific would be better for the flexibility you need to adapt to different styles,” Terry said. “It’s hard to compare, and I’m not sure how I’d go if I was young enough to play – it’s useless comparing eras – different game and training specifically for 6 a side – I reckon I’d be ok though…Ball skills probably better now, but you’ve got specific programs for that in school and club Touch now and kids can access opportunities easily…sometimes a bit too easily there are lots of chances to represent Australia at a young age, I’d like to see Men’s and Women’s Open still the pinnacle and kids allowed to enjoy playing, and have to strive to stay in the sport to achieve the big goal,” added Donna. Both parents are now heavily involved with coaching juniors. They co-coach the BMTA Under 11 Girls team, after coaching the boys when they were younger, and Donna coached the Met East Primary School boys to the Title at the State Primary Championships in Toowoomba earlier this year. 10 Year old Michaela watched as her Mum coached and her brother played in that winning State Championship team and remembers this as the best thing about her Mum’s coaching. “Mummy said be strong, be brave – and Believe – I think that’s really good, I love it how she says it,” Michaela said. Donna’s parents Don and Margaret Baker would follow the family all over Australia playing Touch – Mrs Baker must surely be one of the sport’s greatest supporter’s, for 28 Years has she been watching her family play the sport that they all love, including her. Mrs Baker says, “It’s been a pleasure, I love it, they can’t get hurt too much in this game, to see them all achieve so much is great, and the wonderful people that you meet – it’s been a fantastic journey.” Always smiling, and with a big hug for you, Mrs Baker is an absolute champion, supporters like her are so important to the game and their families. The Jacks family is close knit, Ryley says he is very close to his brothers and sister and he loves playing games like passing balls through a passing hoop, and `Run at me’ a game where you get challenged anywhere anytime to run as hard as you can at your brother and they have to stop you by any means. Ryley would love to play with his brothers in a team one day when they are older, a prospect that would please his parents no end. “I’d love them all to play Open Men’s together, that would be special,” Donna said. Both Rhys and Ryley play league and both are exceptional half backs, I asked Ryley what he’d do if one day Wayne Bennett sat the two brothers down and told him they’d have to fight each other for the one spot – would he give his brother the spot? “Nah, I love the Broncos, and you get paid, and Rhys is brilliant anyway, so he’d have to find room for us both eventually, but if I could get a start I’d have to take it – same if it was Rhys, it’d bring out the best in us both,” he said. That look, the one Donna or Terry uses to look into your heart to see if you are ready and prepared to give it everything for this game is on Ryley’s face as he says this – determination plus. I remember playing against Donna when she was at her peak, and I was a 14 year old schoolgirl. I remember being amazed at her fitness and strength and skills and most of all her leadership, the way other players responded to her and how she directed them and seemed to have time for all of them. It was a real honour to eventually play with her when she played with us at HK Sharks in `90 and `91 and to learn from her. She encouraged and passed on so much good advice, about training and skills, playing, captaincy and middle play, but the best thing she did for all of us was to lead by example. She only spoke when she really had something to say and she was honest. She would tell you if you could do better, but she would build you up if you needed it and her timing on all this was perfect – her people skills were excellent. She saw things in me – talent and skills and leadership that others didn’t, and self-belief – she was wise and taught me to back myself and dig in when it’s toughest. `Ryles’ will be listening to his psyche up music before he takes on NSW tomorrow -” Eye of the tiger” will be blaring in his ears, but “Be strong, Be brave, and Believe” will be playing in his heart…. that’s the greatest gift in word and deed that Terry and Donna have given, not only their beautiful children, but the rest of us who have been privileged enough to walk some of life’s journey beside them.
