(Photo/Asian Tour)Young Thai talent Jazz Janewattananond took advantage of a hot streak to close with a four-under-par 67 to seal a solid four-shot victory at the Asian Tour endorsed Queen’s Cup in Pattaya last Sunday.After trading one birdie against two bogeys to turn in 37, Janewattananond fired five straight birdies from the 10th to pull away from the pack before reeling in four closing pars for a winning total of 19-under-par 265 at the Phoenix Gold Golf and Country Club.Janewattananond, who was trailing by one shot at the turn, sparked his hot run with a chip-in birdie from 11 yards on the 10th. The 22-year-old Thai bounced back from a wayward tee shot on the next with a brilliant approach from the trees which left him a one-footer for birdie.He went on to make a seven-footer on the 12th, drain a long 24-feet uphill putt on 13th and nail an eight-footer on 14th to cap five birdies in-a-row en route to winning the US$300,000 event, which celebrated its 10th straight edition on the Asian Tour. Janewattananond made up for the disappointment of finishing runner-up last year with this victory which saw him take home a winner’s prize purse of US$54,000 and receive a total of 14 Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) points.India’s Gaganjeet Bhullar battled to a 71 to take second place while American Sihwan Kim and Pavit Tangkamolprasert of Thailand shared third place on 270 following respective rounds of 70 and 71.“I got off to a slow start today. I was a bit shaky, made some bogeys there. The turning point came after I chipped it in on the 10th hole,” said Janewattananond. “I felt like my game just came back after that. It wasn’t easy out there today. I am just happy to come out on top. It feels very good to win at home and with my parents watching me win as well.”Janewattananond will be making his Major debut at The Open at Carnoustie later this month. He earned the coveted spot after finishing tied-fourth at the season-opening SMBC Singapore Open in January, which was part of The Open Qualifying Series.“I came here with the mindset of putting my game in good shape for The Open later this month. I did more than that. To be able to win this week is a bonus. It has definitely helped to boost my confidence,” said the young Thai star.(Source: Asian Tour)
A raffle that has been pure and unique. The only condition that has been is that it will be played in the field of those teams that disputed the eighth visitors. If both are in the same conditions (having played both at home or away in the previous round) the extraction order will mark where you play.The draw was marked by the absence of the champion and the runner-up of the Queen’s Cup last season. Atlético de Madrid and Real Sociedad are not among the top eight teams in the competition this time.It is not yet known if the matches will be televised. From the RFEF they have exposed their idea of continuing with the same line they had in the round of 16. For this they will ask permission from the clubs involved in this new round of the Copa de la Reina. This Thursday took place the draw for the matches of the quarterfinals of the 2020 Copa de la Reina 2020. The matches are played on Tuesday and Wednesday, February 25 and 26 in a single game.The first ball out was Athletic, which will face the Tacon. “It is an unbeatable field, it will be a great qualifier, we will go for all,” said Sara Ezquerro, goalkeeper of the Tacon. Barcelona will receive at the Johan Cruyff stadium Deportivo Abanca, one of the revelation clubs of this season.Madrid CFF will receive at the Matapiñonera stadium Sevilla. And finally, Logroño will receive Betis. There has been no confrontation between the two teams in Seville.
Gold Board probe…consequences must be borne if law was broken – JagdeoThe People’s Progressive Party is awaiting the completion of the investigation being carried out into the operations of the Guyana Gold Board (GGB) before it makes a pronouncement.PPP Central Executive member, Dr Roger LuncheonInvestigations are currently underway into the operations of the Gold Board following reports that staff members might be linked to gold dealer Saddiqi Rafeek Mohamed Rasul, who was charged earlier this month for a $956 million fraud.Three persons have since been sent on administrative leave pending the completion of the probe – the daughter of former President Donald Ramotar, Lisaveta Ramotar; Legal Officer Suzanne Bullen and Deputy General Manager, Andrea Seelochan.Speaking to the media on Monday, PPP Central Executive Member, Dr Roger Luncheon said it was way too early for a pronouncement.He said to make a pronouncement now with the inconclusive findings would be most inappropriate.Opposition Leader Dr Bharrat JadgeoMeanwhile, PPP General Secretary and Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo, addressing the issue also on Monday, said the Police had to carry out their investigations, as his Party was not against any probe carried out professionally.“The Police seem to be very public in these matters. If you have a major problem with gold smuggling, investigate it thoroughly. The PPP is not against professional, thorough investigations and wherever the chips fall, then the consequences have to be borne by people if they break the law,” he told Journalists on Monday.He said, however, that this could not be done conveniently, since he was aware that there might be connections to Ministers in this whole affair.“I guess they would sterilise the ministerial connections in this matter and just allow the technical staff to face the music in this case. I am all for thorough investigations, but including the Ministers,” he said.

0Shares0000Arsenal’s Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrates one of his two goals during the English Premier League clash against Stoke City on April 1, 2018LONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 1- Arsenal warmed up for their crucial Europa League quarter-final with a flattering 3-0 victory against relegation-threatened Stoke on Sunday.Three goals in the final 15 minutes put a gloss on a largely soporific performance at a well-below capacity Emirates Stadium. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored the first two, including a penalty opener. Substitute Alexandre Lacazette netted the third, also from the spot, after he had been fouled.But the result left both clubs in the same positions in the Premier League table, with Arsenal sixth and Stoke second bottom.The Gunners will have to play better in the first leg against CSKA Moscow on Thursday in Europe.With little chance of finishing in the Premier League’s top four, Arsenal must win the Europa League to qualify for next season’s Champions League — a target that looks essential for under-fire Gunners boss Arsene Wenger as he fights to save his job.Jack Wilshere may have missed both England’s friendlies with the Netherlands and Italy but the Arsenal midfielder recovered from a knee niggle to claim the captain’s armband for the day, with goalkeeper Petr Cech absent and defender Laurent Koscielny on the bench.Stoke’s preparations had seen Ibrahim Afellay jettisoned by manager Paul Lambert for not trying in training, but Eric Pieters was restored to the starting line-up after being fined for going clubbing before the previous match.The game’s first chance belonged to Stoke, the team with the greater need of three points, as Mame Biram Diouf laid the ball back to Xherdan Shaqiri, who shifted the ball onto his preferred left foot and curled it inches wide of David Ospina’s right-hand post.Stoke continued to take the game to the hosts, who were giving away possession cheaply.Aaron Ramsey and Wilshere were both culpable in the first 15 minutes.Arsenal almost took an undeserved lead when Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland produced a punch that will not have improved his chances of being England’s number one in the World Cup.It landed at Ramsey’s feet on the right of the six-yard box and the Welshman’s hook cleared the goalkeeper and bounced off the top of the crossbar.– Barren desert of mediocrity –Stoke City’s English goalkeeper Jack Butland (L) stops a shot from Arsenal’s Gabonese striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang during the English Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium on April 1, 2018It was to prove a shallow oasis in a desert of barren first-half mediocrity however as Arsenal continued to waste possession.Neither side made any changes in the interval but Arsenal at least began with added urgency, with Danny Welbeck lashing a chance just wide.Mohamed Elneny saw a shot blocked before Butland dived to deny Nacho Monreal.Wenger finally made a switch as the fit-again Lacazette came on for Welbeck, while Diouf, having taken a knock, was replaced by Saido Berahino.Shaquiri curled a right-footer straight at Ospina before seeing a corner deceive the keeper and bounce off the back post.Aubameyang was denied by a good block by Butland moments before the award of the game-deciding penalty in the 75th minute.Bruno Martins Indi’s clumsy trip of Mesut Ozil was needless and Aubameyang made him pay as he sent Butland the wrong way from the spot.Stoke gave Aubameyang too much space for a simple second goal in the 86th minute.And when Badou Ndiaye bundled over Lacazette in the 89th minute, the France striker was given a chance to convert the penalty instead of Aubameyang going for a hat-trick.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
LOS ANGELES – A federal judge has ruled that forcing county jail inmates to sleep on the floor to relieve overcrowding is unconstitutional. U.S District Judge Dean D. Pregerson said in a ruling released Friday that jail officials violated inmates’ right to protection from cruel and unusual punishment, and were guilty of “deliberate indifference” for failing to provide them with bunks. “This is quite an extraordinary ruling,” said attorney Stephen Yagman, who represented prisoners involved in a class-action lawsuit. “I’ve never seen anything like it.” Attorney Paul B. Beach, who represented the county in the lawsuit, did not immediately respond to a telephone message left seeking comment early Monday by The Associated Press. He declined comment to the Los Angeles Times on Sunday. Sheriff’s Department spokesman Steve Whitmore said the practice of having inmates sleep on the floor “is over, and has been for a while now.” The lawsuit covers inmates who were forced to sleep on the floor from December 2000 to May 2005. Yagman said Sunday that he had two other class-action cases involving inmates who were allegedly forced to sleep on floors from May 2005 to as recently as this year. 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

Callum Wilson hopes his hat-trick against West Ham is a sign of things to come as he aims to help Bournemouth secure their Premier League status this season.The striker scored 23 goals for the Cherries in the Championship last season and continued that form into the top fight as Eddie Howe’s side edged a seven-goal thriller to win 4-3 at Upton Park on Saturday.Wilson was ‘delighted’ to realise a boyhood dream of scoring in the Premier League, but the 23-year-old remains focussed on the bigger picture as the club took the first step in their quest to avoid an immediate drop back to the second tier.“I’m delighted to get the hat-trick,” the Bournemouth goalscorer told Call Collymore.“Any goal in the Premier League is massive. On a personal note it’s made my confidence go sky high, but it’s more about the team performance, getting off the mark and getting three points – that’s the main thing.”Bournemouth are tipped as one of the favourites to go down this term, with many questioning if they have the firepower to cut it in the top flight.But, despite failing to find the net, the Cherries showed battling qualities in two narrow 1-0 defeats against Aston Villa and Liverpool, and Wilson insists they have no fears over how they will fare against the big boys.“As a team, this result shows we can score goals,” he added.The manager said there was no need to panic. We knew that if we carried on playing how we did in the first two games that the results would come.“Scoring in the Premier League is a massive for me, it’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was a little boy. Now I’ve achieved that, it’s time to try and get more and keep the club in this division come the end of the season.”
Analysts from the Office of National Drug Control Policy said there are also concerns that hemp farms could be used to hide marijuana plants.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card “This makes sense,” said Leno. “It could provide an opportunity of great value to family farmers. This could be a bonanza of job growth.” The bill passed on a vote of 41-30. If senators approve it, it would need the governor’s signature. A spokesman for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said he has not taken a position on the proposal. Some critics said that allowing hemp to be grown would put the state on a slippery slope. “You pass industrial hemp today, and then something else, and then something else,” said Assemblyman Dennis Mountjoy, R-Monrovia. “And then, at some point, you will get legalized marijuana.” The Drug Enforcement Administration had classified hemp as a controlled substance because an average plant contains small amounts of tetrahydrocannabinols, or THC, the same drug that gives marijuana its intoxicating effect. SACRAMENTO – A bill approved by the state Assembly on Thursday would add California to the growing number of states seeking to legalize the cultivation of industrial hemp – a biological relative of marijuana. Supporters claim that despite its family links, hemp is a completely safe product that could become a cash crop for California farmers because of its use in a long list of products from soap and cosmetics to rope, jewelry and even luggage. But even if the measure eventually becomes law, farmers would still face hurdles to actually cultivate the plant because hemp contains trace amounts of a banned substance and may still fall under federal anti-drug rules. The bill’s author, Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, said the Assembly’s passage of the measure marks an important milestone.

It starts, naturally, with Heisman Trophy winner Matt Leinart, who eschewed NFL millions to return and quarterback the defending national champion Trojans for his senior year. Then there’s the most dangerous player in college football, Reggie Bush, and the powerful and bruising LenDale White, both at running back. USC collects great receivers like other teams do water bottles. Dwyane Jarrett emerged as one of the best in the country last year as a freshman. Steve Smith caught three touchdown passes in the national championship game against Oklahoma. Chris McFoy and Willie Buchanon return, Whitney Lewis is rounding into shape, and then there’s 6-5 freshman Patrick Turner, the latest in the Mike Williams-Jarrett line of super receivers. Tight end Dominique Byrd is a marvelously talented tight end. That’s a lot of weapons, a wealth of riches. Some have suggested it’s also a surplus of firepower that will lead to an inevitable battle of egos. Just too many guys who need and want the ball. “I am not worried one bit,” Carroll said. “I hope our guys are frustrated by it. I hope they want the ball more. I hope they are chomping at the bit to get another shot at it. “That brings the right kind of mentality. That is what we are looking for. “I don’t even know how to allude to anything that is not positive about it. It is a great situation and hopefully we can continue to position guys in those spots too.” Leinart has also shrugged off suggestions that there are just not enough footballs to go around. “We had the same people last year and it wasn’t a problem,” Leinart said. True enough, all the skill players who romped through Oklahoma with touchdowns in that 55-19 victory returned. All have bought in on Carroll’s team concept in the past, all fueled by national championships. But in USC’s 63-17 victory over Hawaii in its season opener, the first hint of conflict emerged from White. White lost his starting tailback spot to Bush before the opener, then found himself clearly playing a reduced role during the game. Most glaringly, it was Bush – and not White – who was called upon during a goal-line situation. After one TD, 10 Trojans rushed to the end zone to celebrate while White returned to the sideline. Said White to the Daily News’ Scott Wolf: “That’s what happens when you’ve got the Heisman Trophy tailback on the team … I have no clue at all what’s going on. You’ve got Reggie Bush on the team and that’s what happens.” Bush finished fifth in the Heisman voting last season. It is Leinart and Bush featured on the cover of the team media guide, not White. It’s not only easy to understand how White would feel slighted, it’s almost unrealistic to expect he wouldn’t be. Carroll has done his best to downplay the Hawaii incident and inferred it was media created. That’s what Carroll should do, of course. Calm the waters, right the ship. Send strong messages. Bush and White seemed to get along well personally. If the Trojans continue to move the ball as expected, there may well be enough moments for all to shine. Let all the options be the opponents’ problem. “This is an awesome opportunity for us to make a really effective offense work and go and stress out our opponent,” he said. “The good thing that has been proven is, you don’t know who is going to be the featured guy. Sometimes we don’t know either. We go with what is working for us. “You likely could see LenDale get the ball 20 times this game. That could happen. Or we will go to Steve Smith 10 times this game or Dominique this game. It depends on how we are playing and how our opponent decides they need to stop us.” Or try to, anyway. USC may emerge as the best offensive college team ever. No one questions the talent is there and Carroll figures they shouldn’t question there’s too much. It’s a beautiful thing.

How could this possibly ever be a problem? “It’s a beautiful thing,” said USC coach Pete Carroll. A desired thing, an absolute no-brainer. Carroll can’t begin to fathom how anyone would suggest otherwise. How in the name of John McKay could USC possibly ever have … too much talent?

No one ever accused Steven Spielberg of being too talented, so what’s with all this concern over USC? “I don’t understand why people think that is a bad thing,” Carroll said. “It is awesome. “How much more could you want? We have so many guys we can get the ball to. That is all anybody could ever hope for.” It goes to the heart of Carroll’s competitive USC culture. He recruits the best. Goes after guys with NFL futures. Then throws them together and tells them to battle, and may the best guy win. That’s just at each position. The concern has been, USC has enough weapons to fuel several competitive teams, if not back North Korea into total disarmament.
