ROME — Bernd Wiesberger moved atop the Race to Dubai rankings by winning the Italian Open on Sunday for his second Rolex Series victory of the year. Wiesberger carded a bogey-free 6-under 65 at Olgiata Golf Club for a one-stroke victory over Matthew Fitzpatrick after beginning the day three strokes behind the Englishman. Fitzpatrick had chances to get into a playoff but missed both an eagle putt on the 17th hole that lipped around the cup and a birdie effort on No. 18. It was Wiesberger’s third win of the season after Denmark in May and the Scottish Open – which is also in the Rolex Series – in July. The 34-year-old Austrian also finished in a tie for second in the Irish Open. ”I’ve played really well in the right events,” said Wiesberger, who finished 16 under overall. ”Just really excited what’s ahead of us in the last few events.” Wiesberger has 4,198 points in the Race to Dubai, ahead of Jon Ram (3,898), British Open champion Shane Lowry (3,535) and Fitzpatrick (2,865). Fresh off a win: Wiesberger calls in to talk seventh Euro victory Full-field scores from the Italian Open He joins Rahm, Alex Noren, Justin Rose and Danny Willett as multiple winners in the Rolex Series. It was the seventh career win on the European Tour for Wiesberger, who missed the last seven months of last year with a wrist injury. ”I’ve been really good putting myself in positions and staying there,” Wiesberger said after earning a winner’s check of $1.1 million. ”I just really enjoy my time and being back out there, because I know how tough it was when I had to withdraw from these events last year. It’s just really full enjoyment out there when I’m in position.” Wiesberger also moved to a career-high 22nd in the world golf rankings, boosting his chances of making a Ryder Cup debut next year. American Kurt Kitayama finished third, four shots behind Wiesberger and one stroke ahead of Andrew Johnston, Robert MacIntyre and Matthias Schwab. Francesco Laporta was the top Italian in a tie for seventh while Andrea Pavan tied for 10th on his home course. With a $7 million purse, the Italian Open returned to Rome after 17 years as the local federation attempts to boost interest ahead of the 2022 Ryder Cup at the nearby Marco Simone club . Total attendance for the four days was 29,000. ”This week couldn’t have been better in terms of re-embracing Rome and preparing for 2022,” said Italian golf federation president Franco Chimenti. ”We had four days of perfect sunshine – which is something we’re used to in Rome.” Chimenti announced that next year’s tournament will also be played at Olgiata, before the tournament moves to Marco Simone in 2021.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont,Vermont Business Magazine Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont (BCBSVT) reminds its members of their access to telemedicine benefits and shares new service offerings effective in 2018. For years, BCBSVT has provided its members access to the largest, most extensive network of providers within Vermont and the U.S. Last year, to further provide members with the most current and convenient access to medical care, BCBSVT partnered with American Well® (Amwell) to give members 24/7/365 access to doctors via telemedicine.Telemedicine provides online video consultation access with a provider via a computer, or an app on a smartphone or tablet. The providers can help with issues like respiratory infections, bronchitis, urinary tract infections, pharyngitis, rashes, pink eye, cough, flu, stuffy head and allergies. They can also prescribe medication if needed.(link is external)Effective January 1, 2018, BCBSVT is excited to announce that members will also be able to take advantage of newly added telemedicine services to include nutritional counseling, breastfeeding support and mental health and substance abuse support.To use this service(link is external), BCBSVT members should visit Amwell.com or download the Amwell app from iTunes® or the Google Play™ store to their phone or tablet. Once a member registers an account, he or she can either select a provider from the list of available providers or simply wait for the next available provider. If a member can’t wait, he or she can also schedule an appointment for a time that is more convenient. One of the biggest benefits of accessing the service and registering ahead of time is that members may access this tool whenever they or their family members feel sick.“We are very excited to be able to offer our members 24/7 access to providers,” says Dr. Joshua Plavin, vice president and chief medical officer at BCBSVT. “In our busy lives today, scheduling time with a provider can sometimes be a challenge. The convenience and ease of accessing a qualified medical provider using a smartphone or computer provides our members additional access to care, especially in some of our rural areas with more limited provider access. With over half the state’s population living in more rural areas, having a way to connect with round-the-clock care via phone or computer can significantly increase health care access in Vermont.”Plavin, who is board certified in both pediatrics and internal medicine, also recognizes the advantages of telemedicine from the provider point of view. “For many health situations, especially afterhours on nights and weekends, the patient only needs a quick visit, so that the provider can get a clear sense of the patient’s concerns and offer treatment that can help as soon as possible. Providing a new, online way to interact with patients makes good medical sense.”About Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont: Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont is the State’s only Vermont-based, not-for-profit health plan, providing coverage for about 250,000 Vermonters. It employs about 400 Vermonters at its headquarters in Berlin, a branch office in South Burlington and its Information and Wellness Center in South Burlington’s Blue Mall, and offers group and individual health plans to Vermonters.

Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored Article published by Maria Salazar The recent top stories from Mongabay Latam, our Spanish-language service, include a call to cover climate change, the dangers of opposing Colombia’s largest hydropower plant, and the most inspiring conservation news of 2018.‘We are not doing enough’: 25 media groups commit to cover climate change“Journalists across the continent have a profound obligation to understand the science behind the entire planet’s transition to a different model of growth and development,” says a statement signed by 25 media organizations, including Colombia’s influential El Espectador and Bolivia’s El Deber newspapers, Argentine environmental magazine Claves 21, Peru’s Ojo-Publico.com, and Mexico’s Lado B.

17 February 2010 Education continues to receive the lion’s share of South Africa’s Budget, with Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan announcing an allocation of R165-billion to the Basic Education and Higher Education departments for 2010/11 – an increase of more than R17-billion compared to the previous year. A further R2.7-billion will be made available to help the Department of Basic Education tackle serious challenges in South Africa’s schooling system, including unacceptably low numeracy and literacy levels, inadequately trained teachers, poor management, and a lack of basic resources in poor schools. Delivering his maiden Budget speech in Parliament, Cape Town on Wednesday, Gordhan said that while government spending needed to be kept in check, education remained the number one priority in the country’s fiscus. Workbooks, assessments The R2.7-billion would go towards the roll-out of workbooks in all 11 official languages to help raise literacy and numeracy levels in grades 3, 6 and 9. The workbooks would help teachers map out clear plans and guide effective use of the curriculum. An annual R28-million is also being provided for national assessments of literacy and numeracy in grades 3, 6 and 9. These assessments, announced by President Jacob Zuma in his State of the Nation Address last week, will allow teachers and parents to intervene at the right time in students’ careers in order to improve their performance. Spending by provincial education departments is also expected to grow by 8.1 percent per year to R162-billion over the next three years.FET colleges, universities Gordhan said the country’s Further Education and Training colleges would receive R12-billion in 2010/11, with a further R1.3-billion set aside to improve the salaries of educators in this sector over the next three years. The government will use the R12-billion to promote higher training standards to meet the requirements of a changing economy, while addressing the lack of training in certain key areas. South Africa’s lack of skilled labour is hampering the country’s economic growth, with twice as many students enrolled in universities as in vocational colleges – the reverse of what is the case in most developed countries. Allocations to South Africa’s higher education institutions have grown from R7.1-billion in 2001/02 to R15.3-billion for 2010/11. An additional R1-billion is to be provided over the next three years to increase subsidies to universities, while R5.6-billion will go to the National Student Financial Aid Scheme. Source: BuaNews
United States Capitol and the Senate Building, Washington DC . Image: Cathay Pacific Cathay Pacific will use the Airbus A350-1000 to connect Hong Kong to Washington, DC, for the first time in 2018 with a four-times weekly direct flight.The service to Dulles International Airport will be the longest in the Cathay network at 7,085 nautical miles (8,153 miles or 13,122kms) and is part of a strategy by the Hong Kong carrier to expand its nonstop routes using next generation aircraft.The fuel efficient aircraft allow it to open up routes it would not otherwise have considered.The airline is also spruiking 2018 as one of its most significant years in terms of expansion.Other services to be launched next year include year-round services to Irish capital Dublin in March and to European political center Brussels in June.A seasonal service to Copenhagen in Denmark begins in May and frequencies on popular routes such as Barcelona, Spain, and Tel Aviv, Israel, will be increased in 2018.The new Washington route will complement existing routes to the East Coast, including Boston and New York’s two main international airports – John F Kennedy and Newark Liberty.Cathay is fighting increased competition in its home market and announced in August a first-half loss of $HK2 billion ($US262m), compared to a net profit of $HK353 million in the first half of 2016. It predicted at the time the second half would likely be just as bad.The new route also comes as US carriers have strengthened their ties with mainland Chinese carriers determined to increase their presence in the North American market.American Airlines in March announced a $US200million equity investment in Guangzhou-based China Southern that brought together two largely complementary networks and gave American a foothold in burgeoning Chinese market.Delta Air Lines a 3.55 per cent stake in Shanghai’s China Eastern and is poised to help the Chinese carrier set up operations at Beijing’s giant second airport, Daxing, when it opens in 2019.Cathay Pacific chief executive Rupert Hogg said that the new service has been introduced to cater to the growing demand for travel to the Washington region while giving US-based passengers with more convenient access to Asia and beyond through its Hong Kong hub.“Our customers have told us they want greater options and increased flexibility – and we’ve listened,” Hogg said in the announcement. “Much like Hong Kong, Washington DC is a vibrant and dynamic destination and we are thrilled to soon be providing the only direct flights between these two great cities.“Establishing new direct air links to destinations that aren’t already served from Hong Kong enhances our city’s status as Asia’s largest international hub and allows us to secure new and important sources of revenue.’’The A350-1000 is the bigger sister of the A350-900 already operated by Cathay. It has less range than the -900 but offers good operational economics in terms of costs per seat-mile.It will feature a three-class cabin with business, premium economy and economy classes.READ: Cathay Pacific’s new A350 a winner for passengers.Cathay has 45 A350s on order and until recently had planned to take 26 of those as -1000s. In September, however, it converted six of the -1000 orders back to the smaller -900s.

The FA Cup always is difficult but we played good but, unfortunately, we could not go through.”But now we have to focus absolutely in the Premier League to try to win the games and hopefully arrive good in the quarter finals of the Champions League.”Aguero capitalised on slack Arsenal defending to open the scoring before City hit their stride to pull clear in the second half – with Guardiola elated at their ability to move through the gears.#PEP: It was so important to win this one after the defeat in the [FA] cup [against Wigan].

Ballack was playing for Chelsea as Ovrebo rejected a handful of penalty appeals made by the Blues, who were eventually knocked out by a dramatic late goal scored by Barca midfielder Andres Iniesta.The 41-year-old later offered a more clear-minded assessment of the game on Wednesday, writing: “Messi made the difference.”
The players in the Razorbacks Mens Open side at the 2004 NTL’s have many things in common. They all love touch, show great skill and talent, and many of them even share the same surnames. For brothers, Ben, James and Matt Roberts, touch has always been a large part of their lives. They became interested in touch as young kids, often watching their parents play. Soon enough the boys wanted to join in themselves and started their touch careers under the guidance of ex-Australian player, Don Smith. Competitive touch was always a goal, starting out under coach, Gavin Smith. Since then, both Ben and James have gone on to represent their state side, Queensland and also Australia. Older brother Matt rates them as “two of the best young players in Australia at the moment”, and loves watching them succeed and develop as players. They admit to easily criticising each other on the field, but off the field can quickly highlight many positive aspects of each other’s games. “Matt’s a great talker, as the oldest he tells us what to do, but we like that”, says Ben. “We’re always trying out new things to do, and teaching and learning off each other.” They even find time to hang out with each other off the touch field, not only as brothers, but as best mates. A good relationship off the field is also shared by two other brothers in the same Razorbacks team. Chris and Ash Farrow not only play touch together, they find time to surf together too. They both admit to being competitive with each other on the field but Ash highlights that “I win the fights!” Their healthy competitive nature is one of the reasons they’re constantly improving as touch players. “We’re always pretty hard on each other, but that’s a good thing”, says Chris. They not only share a close bond with each other, but with the Roberts brothers also. By playing alongside their siblings for so many years, the brothers feel as though they know each other’s games as well as their own and push each other to improve. A strong bond can be easily formed amongst teammates when several members are already closely connected like these guys. Having players that share such a close bond with each other has its obvious advantages, as acknowledged by Razorbacks Mens Open Captain, Neil Ward. “It’s a great advantage to our side having guys who not only know each others games well, but also are great mates and can work together.” The Razorbacks Mens Open team are doing well already this week. After three rounds, Razorbacks have had one win against Crusaders 6-1, lost a tight one to Brisbane Cobras 3-2 and lost to the Sydney Mets 5-2. Lisa Plummer
