They are really working hard on this course and it is turning into a real championship venue.  It played like it today and the decision to play off the white tees, which were well back, added to the difficulty.  Only Paul Smith handled it well with an excellent gross 75 (net 73) for 35 points, aided by birdies on the final three holes.  The next best score on the day was just 29 points.Gerry Cooney.last_img read more

Bengals’ playoff drought goes on with 18-16 loss to Steelers

first_imgBut, then, the self-destruction began.“We have to be smart in situations throughout the game and make smart decisions,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth said.Instead of protecting the ball at all costs, Hill got stripped by Ryan Shazier to give the Steelers one more chance. Hill lost his starting job temporarily this season because of fumbles. This one set up the ugly final sequence to Cincinnati’s season.“It’s hard to put into words,” said Hill, who failed to run for 100 yards in any game this season. “Words don’t do anything at this point. It’s on me. I take full blame for it. It’s very unfortunate.”Ben Roethlisberger returned from a shoulder injury to lead the winning drive, with personal fouls on Burfict and Jones moving them within range.Burfict lowered his shoulder and hit receiver Antonio Brown in the head after an incompletion, drawing a penalty. While the Steelers were on the field checking on the injured receiver, Jones got into it with Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter and drew another flag, making it 30 yards in penalties.Shortly after the game ended, Jones went on a profane rant against the official on Instagram, which was soon deleted. He also tweeted his disagreement with his penalty, saying a Steelers coach came on the field to trash talk and it was “Not even a head coach.” Burfict had no explanation for his penalty, repeatedly saying, “I don’t know.”Boswell’s fourth field goal extended Cincinnati’s playoff drought to 25 years and counting, the sixth-longest in NFL history.Lewis fell to 0-7 in the playoffs, moving ahead of Jim Mora for most such losses to start an NFL coaching career. And the Bengals (12-5) now have lost an opening-round game for five consecutive seasons — no other team has done it more than three times in a row.McCarron filled in for the injured Andy Dalton and showed his big-game mettle against long odds. No NFL quarterback with so little starting experience had won a playoff game since 1979, when Gifford Nielsen led the Oilers over the Charger. Dan Fouts threw five interceptions to make that one possible.“We were so close to giving this city what they deserved — to do it against a team like Pittsburgh — and for it not to happen … it’s bad,” McCarron said.An injury gave the Bengals their opening. With the Steelers up 15-0 in the fourth quarter, Roethlisberger hurt his right shoulder when Burfict sacked him, forcing him to the locker room. McCarron’s clutch TD pass to Green got the Bengals to the verge of their breakthrough.But Big Ben returned to lead the final nine-play, 74-yard drive, converting a third down and a fourth-down play to keep it going.It ended with Burfict jawing at Lewis on the sideline and players staring in disbelief. The Steelers ran right to their locker room when time ran out, getting pelted with cans by angry fans. The Bengals headed into an offseason of change, with nearly half the starting lineup in the final contract year.Lewis has one more year on his deal, but will come under intense scrutiny after his team self-destructed.

Vontaze Burfict led with his shoulder head-high. Adam “Pacman” Jones lost his cool. In a matter of seconds, Cincinnati let it all slip away.The Bengals’ latest playoff meltdown was one for the books, in many ways the worst of them all. And it will shake the franchise for a long time.Hill fumbled away a chance to close out the game, and personal fouls on Burfict and Jones moved the Steelers in range for the winning field goal on Saturday night. Chris Boswell’s 35-yard kick with 14 seconds left gave Pittsburgh an 18-16 victory — another blow-to-the-gut moment to the Bengals’ horrid playoff history. “Got back and went ahead, and then we destructed on ourselves, offense and defense together,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “That’s disappointing.” The Bengals rallied from a 15-0 deficit in the fourth quarter behind AJ McCarron, who threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green for a 16-15 lead with only 1:50 to go. The Bengals appeared to seal it when a diving Burfict picked off Landry Jones’ pass with 1:36 left.

Tsogo Sun in $100m African expansion

first_img29 April 2013South African hotel and casino group Tsogo Sun is to invest $100-million (about R900-million) in projects in Mozambique and Nigeria as part of its African growth strategy.The Southern Sun Maputo in Mozambique will get a $30-million (R270-million) revamp of the existing 158-room hotel, as well as the addition of 110 rooms and conferencing facilities.“The Mozambican economy has shown encouraging signs of growth in recent years, and Tsogo Sun has benefited from a strong trading at the Southern Sun Maputo,” Tsogo Sun chief executive, Marcel von Aulock, said in a statement last Wednesday.“The group has for some time been planning to utilise the additional land owned next to the hotel and believe that this exciting expansion programme will cement the Southern Sun Maputo as the destination hotel of choice in the city.”Approximately $70-million (R630-million) will go towards the Nigerian project.

Lawmakers Question IRS’s New Sole-Source Identity Verification Contract with Equifax

first_imgLogin to read more tax news on CCH® AnswerConnect or CCH® Intelliconnect®.Not a subscriber? Sign up for a free trial or contact us for a representative. The House Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee held an October 4 hearing on the IRS’s efforts and challenges toward modernizing its information technology (IT) infrastructure. Witnesses from the IRS, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) and Government Accountability Office (GAO) testified before the subcommittee.Antiquated TechnologyThe IRS is currently operating on out-of-date, antiquated hardware and software, IRS officials Jeffrey J. Tribiano, deputy commissioner for operations support, and Silvana Gina Garza, chief information officer, both testified. “Approximately 64 percent of IRS hardware is aged and out of warranty, and 32 percent of software is two or more releases behind the industry standard, with 15 percent more than four releases behind,” they noted in their shared written testimony.Depleted Budget ResponsibleAccording to Tribiano and Garza, the IRS’s depleted budget over the years is largely to blame. However, President Trump’s fiscal year (FY) 2018 budget requests $2.07 billion for information services; $216.1 million above current FY 2017 levels. Additionally, Trump’s budget proposes reinstating the IRS’s streamlined critical pay authority. The loss of critical pay authority hurt the IRS’s ability to recruit and retain experienced IT managers, the officials noted while encouraging Congress to approve the proposals.Subcommittee Chairman Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., stated that the IRS’s management decisions must be included in the discussion. “As we examine tax administration reforms, we welcome a discussion on changes to the IRS IT budget. However, changes to the budget must be coupled with better management and governance of the resources the IRS already has,” Buchanan said.Equifax ContractAdministrative decisions, such as the IRS’s September 29 contract with Equifax following that company’s massive data breach, was of particular concern among lawmakers. “More than 20 days had passed since we learned of the greatest data breach in history, and you just signed a contract to pay Equifax to have access to IRS data for identity verification purposes,” Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Ind., said. The IRS officials testifying did not have any information to provide on why the contract was executed.Senate ConcernsMeanwhile, across the Capitol, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Orrin G. Hatch, R-Utah, and ranking member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., also expressed their concern as to the IRS’s contract with Equifax. In an October 4 bipartisan letter to IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, the SFC leaders requested information about why the IRS moved forward with the contract.“Last month, the Committee wrote to Equifax regarding the data breach that is now estimated to have exposed the personally identifiable information of at least 145-million Americans,” Hatch and Wyden wrote. “We were taken aback when it came to our attention that last week the IRS awarded Equifax a sole source contract worth over $7 million for “verifying taxpayer identity and…assisting in ongoing identity verification and validations needs of the Service,”” the taxwriters added. Hatch and Wyden requested a response by the IRS and a copy of the IRS/Equifax contract by October 11.By Jessica Jeane, Wolters Kluwer News Stafflast_img read more

Police thrillers: Khaki is the newest hue in Bollywood

first_imgGANGAAJAL: In Prakash Jha’s film, Ajay Devgan dons the uniform and plays an honest officer who takes on the baddiesViolence reverberates through the grimy, paan-stained corridors of Mumbai’s Directorate of Technical Education. Its majestic Indo-Saracenic central hall doubling as a post office after working hours is littered with broken furniture,GANGAAJAL: In Prakash Jha’s film, Ajay Devgan dons the uniform and plays an honest officer who takes on the baddiesViolence reverberates through the grimy, paan-stained corridors of Mumbai’s Directorate of Technical Education. Its majestic Indo-Saracenic central hall doubling as a post office after working hours is littered with broken furniture because Akshay Kumar in police uniform is trading filmi punches with Ajay Devgan.A biff and a bang later, director Rajkumar Santoshi yells “cut”, ending the pantomime on the sets of one of Bollywood’s biggest blockbusters, Khakee. The days Santoshi spent as chief assistant director to Govind Nihalani, tramping through the city’s police stations to recreate the filthy rooms and the rough police speak in the classic Ardh Satya, have stood him in good stead. The star-spangled Khakee, he promises, will be Bollywood’s closest look at the men in the force. Amitabh Bachchan is the honest IPS officer, Devgan the bad guy, Akshay is crooked and comic, and Tusshar Kapoor is the rookie. Trouble is there are a dozen films waiting in the wings, each promising to do just that. Not all of them have Khakee’s stellar line-up, but they collectively have more than Rs 100 crore riding on their back and a range of actors – from the Union shipping minister to a superbrat – in dust brown fabric packing a pistol. From Sunny Deol who grew a beard to play a rustic Sikh constable dispatched to New York in Jo Bole So Nihal to Nana Patekar playing a hardened encounter specialist in the Ram Gopal Varma factory’s Ab Tak Chappan. The call of duty has attracted even bad boy Salman Khan who, sample this for sheer irony, marched straight to the sets in starched uniform after being jailed for nearly a fortnight for mowing down a pavement dweller. Producer Sunil Mehta hasn’t decided what to call the Rs 25 crore film-Satyameva Jayate or Garv- but swears it is “Salman’s best performance till date”. Actors, evidently, are in short supply for such heavy duty acting. advertisementSATYAMEVA JAYATE Or may be Garv. The Khan brothers Salman Khan (right) and Arbaaz Khan team up as policemenShool’s steely officer Manoj Bajpai reprises the role in two films-Pankuj Parashar’s Inteqam and Mehul Kumar’s Jaago, based on the true story of a rape in a Mumbai local train. Three Khakee stars are doing double-shifts as law enforcers in other films-Devgan has just played Gangaajal’s upright officer while Bachchan hops sets to play policeman in Dev, Santoshi’s one-time mentor Govind Nihalani’s film. Akshay Kumar, who plays a conscientious officer in the Madhur Bhandarkar-directed Aan, sits in crisp uniform amid Khakee’s chaos and confesses with the frankness of a child in a candy store, “I read both scripts at around the same time, both were exciting.” The film’s other hero, Union Minister for Shipping Shatrughan Sinha, had to seek prime ministerial approval, no less, to don greasepaint and khaki. But producer Firoz A. Nadiadwala believes his Weapon of Mass Distraction will be Paresh Rawal who sparked off laugh riots in Hera Pheri. His barbs as the bribe-taking constable are specially penned by Neeraj Vora. Bollywood, used to herd-mentality, is dumb founded by the khaki deluge. “This hasn’t happened in the industry before, but it is no trend,” says trade analyst Amod Mehra. “Santoshi, Varma and Nihalani are serious film-makers, not proposal makers.” Varma wanted to make a film on the encounter specialists in the Mumbai Police. “They get a strange sense of achievement in numbers,” he says, explaining his film’s title, Ab Tak Chappan. “But each statistic represents a dead criminal. It is macabre.” After the superlative Ardh Satya and Drohkaal comes Dev where Nihalani realises his “ambition to work with Bachchan”. He won’t call it the last of his police trilogy but a “story of two friends who happen to be policemen”. DEV: In his third police film, Govind Nihalani (centre) fulfils his dream of working with Amitabh Bachchan (left) and casts him opposite the peerless Om PuriAs an after thought, he says it may be “the Ardh Satya for the new millennium”. Anurag Kashyap, scriptwriter of Shool and Satya, who is to direct Black Friday, a police procedural film on the 1993 Bombay blasts, and Allwyn Kalicharan on a corrupt policeman, Anil Kapoor, in a dystopic Delhi of 2015, explains the police obsession: “It is a fascination for the cop- and crime-genre and people who have the power to do the unthinkable and change lives.”Mumbai policemen are a richly mined vein- encounter specialist sub-inspector Daya Nayak inspires characters in Aan, Ab Tak Chappan and Kagaar while Kay Kay plays Additional Commissioner Rakesh Maria in Black Friday. In these all-male films, women are adornments-recruited for oomph, as Lara Dutta is in Aan, or to play a suffering wife like Gracy Singh in Gangaajal. Unless, of course, it is a policewoman played by Sushmita Sen in Samay, a serial-killer flick. “She is the woman in control,” says director Robby Grewal. The khaki wave even promises to do the unthinkable-be authentic. Former police commissioner M.N. Singh, who had a hitlist of films that showed his department in poor light, had to eat his words when he mistook Akshay Kumar-sporting a close crop and in a uniform stitched by the Mumbai Police’s official tailor-for one of his men at the mahurat of Aan. Designer Anna Singh saw her home deluged with bales of brown fabric when she agreed to design uniforms, over a 1,000 of them, for Santoshi’s film. “He is a perfectionist and wanted all the policemen dressed in the same shade of khaki,” says Singh. Bachchan’s IPS uniform had to be aged by 10 years by washing it every day for two months. Onscreen, however, khaki is the newest hue.advertisementlast_img read more

BCCI suspends Rajasthan Cricket Association to prevent Lalit Modi’s return

first_imgLalit ModiThe Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday suspended Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) soon after controversial cricket administrator Lalit Modi was declared elected as its president.The decision was taken by BCCI interim president Shivlal Yadav in the light of a provision in the Supreme Court order that allowed the world’s richest cricket board take action against the RCA.The BCCI has also decided to issue a show cause notice to the RCA over the contentious election held in December last year. It would now appoint an ad hoc committee to take care of Rajasthan cricket affairs until a full-fledged state body takes charge.Earlier in the day, Modi was declared the winner of the president’s election held on December 19. An SC bench had on April 30 directed the election officer of RCA elections to declare the results on Tuesday. However, it had allowed the BCCI to challenge the controversial Rajasthan Sports Act, 2005 that enabled Modi to contest for the RCA president’s post for a second time.last_img read more
