Annabell birdies her way to play-off victory

first_img10 Aug 2017 Annabell birdies her way to play-off victory Annabell Fuller birdied her way to victory in a play-off against Thalia Kirby for the English U16 girls’ open championship at Blackmoor Golf Club, Hampshire.  The pair tied on three-under par to set up Fuller’s fifth play-off in a year – and the first one she has won. “I thought, I’m not going to lose another one,” said the 15- year-old international from Roehampton, Surrey. She wasted no time, scoring a birdie three on the first extra hole to secure the title – after she’d birdied the last two holes of regulation play to force the play-off.  The victory was particularly sweet for Fuller, who tied fifth last year – with a 14 on her card in the last round. “I wanted to win, especially after last year so I came determined,” she said.  The gap didn’t dismay Fuller: “I thought I would just try my best and go as low as possible,” she said. The strategy worked, after nine holes she was two-under and tied with Kirby, but after 12 she’d dropped three behind again. She picked away at the deficit with a birdie on 13 but was still two behind after 16 holes.  Click here for full scores She also wanted to win an age group championship to follow her sister Sammy, a fellow England international. “It’s nice to follow in her footsteps and it’s also nice to actually do it for myself.  Tags: Annabell Fuller, Girls, U14’s, U16s “But I wouldn’t be in the place I am right now without my sister. She’s a big motivation for me and one of the nicest things is that I can practice with her and learn from her. She’s one of the most supportive people I know.”  Kirby made sure that Fuller had to fight for the title. The 16-year-old from Harleyford, Buckinghamshire, made all the running in this morning’s second round with a score of four-under 68, while Fuller scored 75. Image copyright Leaderboard photography The championship was reduced to 54 holes after the second round was washed out by torrential rain.  It meant Kirby was six-under after 36 holes, five ahead of her closest challengers and six ahead of Fuller.  Third place in the championship went to Italy’s Alice Gatti on two under, while her compatriot Virginia Bossi was fourth on one-under. Charlotte Heath (Huddersfield, Yorkshire) was fifth on two-over and Mimi Rhodes (Burnham & Berrow) shared sixth place on four over.  On the short 17th she fired her tee shot straight at the pin and was rewarded with a 4ft birdie putt which she holed. On the long 18th her second shot rolled back off the green, but she chipped up stone dead, while Kirby three-putted down the treacherous slope. Fuller signed for 69, Kirby for 75 and it was on to the play-off.last_img read more

The Mobile Enterprise: 4 Steps To Keeping It Secure [Infographic]

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Guest author Vijay Dheap is a Mobile Security Strategist at IBM.Security is a balancing act, especially when it comes to emerging technologies that promise to unlock massive business potential. Each new wave of change requires an enterprise to adapt its security posture, or risk being left behind – or exposed to unmanaged risk.Mobile is no different.What was predominantly a consumer-oriented phenomenon is rapidly becoming a top business priority. Individuals, product teams and marketing departments are all scrambling to seize the benefits mobile presents, while security organizations are scrambling to regain control – or at least awareness – of all the enterprise’s mobile-related activities. Enterprises recognize that going mobile requires a strategic perspective.The importance of defining a security strategy for mobile carries greater urgency than ever. While 84% of consumers now use their personal smartphones for work, mobile malware has increased more than four times since 2010. Recent reports indicate that 51% of companies have experienced data loss due to insecure mobile devices – and the average cost of a breach was a hefty $5.5 million. Enterprises have a very real need to reduce this risk while not affecting business objectives focused on mobile. (For a visual look at mobile security stats, see the infographic at the end of this post).Given the dynamic nature of the mobile market, it can be difficult for an enterprise to define a mobile risk management strategy. Organizational inertia alone can lead to increased risk. One approach is to concentrate on four focus areas of mobile security:BYODProtected AccessSecure Mobile SolutionsMobile Security Intelligence1.BYOD, or Bring Your Own Device, has become a defining characteristic of mobile adoption in the enterprise. While not exclusive to smartphones and tablets, these new devices led the way with rapid, organic penetration of many enterprises. But every organization can customize the policies that govern the use of employee-owned mobile devices within the enterprise. BYOD policies should reflect the organization’s risk appetite based on its industry, regulations and culture. Policies can modulate the degree of device choice and which employees participate. Of course, before it can enforce its BYOD policies, an organization needs to gain visibility and control over these new devices.2. Protected Access: Mobile devices empower employees to access relevant information whenever they need it. No matter how much enterprise data is stored on the device, users will frequently need to access additional enterprise data and resources. The enterprise must not only establish secure connectivity channels but also manage risk associated with user authentication and authorization. Given that mobile access typically takes place predominantly outside enterprise boundaries, special care is needed to prevent unauthorized access and reduce risky behaviors. Plus, protecting mobile access provides security teams another lever to gain awareness over their mobile audiences even when they cannot have visibility over the devices themselves (i.e. consumers, partners and unmanaged employees).3. Secure Mobile Solutions: Apps have emerged as the primary interface for delivering mobile solutions to consumers, partners and employees. Apps enable the rich, task-oriented functionality and user experience that mobile consumers demand. Some mobile solutions are outsourced, while others are built by various parts of an enterprise. Security design needs to be incorporated in each step of the software development lifecycle. Mobile app developers – who are generally not particularly security aware – need tools and processes that help them bake in the enterprise’s security standards and best practices. And the enterprise must also enforce a baseline of security standards across the entire range of mobile solutions it develops.4. Mobile security through risk management requires constant vigilance. With rapid innovation comes new capabilities that promote new behaviors. And as mobile adoption accelerates, it becomes a richer target for attackers. The threat landscape indicates a growing affinity towards targeted attacks at individuals or organizations, leveraging mobile as a primary socialization platform. To identify risks and take appropriate mitigation steps, enterprises need to gather intelligence across all the touchpoints of mobile engagements. Intelligence gathering should include aggregating security events from the device, users, apps and the network for analysis – including tracking compliance with existing risk management policies.Mobile is a transformational technology giving individuals unprecedented freedom and flexibility in how they engage professionally and personally. Enterprises cannot afford to ignore that opportunity, but can’t put themselves at risk in their rush to embrace the new technology. By focusing on BYOD, protecting access, securing mobile solutions and developing mobile security intelligence, enterprises can balance the risks and rewards for individual workers and the organization as a whole.For more on mobile enterprise security, see the infographic below. vijay dheap Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Lead image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Pelicans Take Zion Williamson With No. 1 Pick In NBA Draft

first_imgDe’Andre Hunter of national champion Virginia was taken fourth but won’t be teaming up with Williamson. The Pelicans acquired the rights to the pick in the Davis deal but agreed to trade it shortly before the draft to Atlanta. The original trade can’t be official until July 6, so Hunter was outfitted with a Lakers hit and the draft board behind the stage listed the pick as belonging to the Lakers.The Cleveland Cavaliers then took Vanderbilt guard Darius Garland, who played in just five games because of a knee injury.Then it was another pick who won’t be playing for the team that made it, with Jarrett Culver taken at No. 6 by Phoenix with a pick that the Suns agreed to trade to Minnesota for the No. 11 pick.That turned out to be Cameron Johnson, the second North Carolina player to be drafted after Chicago took Coby White at No. 7.Kentucky then had two straight picks, with PJ Washington going 12th to Charlotte and Tyler Herro 13th to Miami.Duke did even better by placing three in the top 10. Cam Reddish went 10th to the Hawks, making the Blue Devils the only team to pull off that feat since Florida placed Al Horford third, Corey Brewer seventh and Joakim Noah ninth after winning the 2007 national championship.Duke’s Cam Reddish shows off his jacket after the Atlanta Hawks selected him as the 10th overall pick in the NBA basketball draft Thursday, June 20, 2019, in New York. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)The trades caused some confusion in Barclays Center beyond just players wearing hats of teams whose uniforms they won’t wear. A brief “Brooklyn! Brooklyn!” chant broke out when the Nets were on the clock at No. 17, but the Nets had already agreed to deal that pick to Atlanta in yet another trade that won’t become official until July 6.Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Brandon Clarke and Mfiondu Kabengele followed Barrett into the NBA, giving Canada its best showing with four first-round picks. The overall record for draft picks from outside the U.S. was set when France had five players selected in 2016.By: Brian Mahoney, AP Basketball WriterTweetPinShare0 Shares NEW YORK — Zion Williamson plays with force and ferocity, a Hulk in hightops who looks as though he’d never show a soft side.Draft night proved otherwise.Williamson was the No. 1 pick of the New Orleans Pelicans — a surprise to nobody who watched basketball this past season. But afterward he couldn’t hide his emotions, even though he along with everyone else knew what would happen Thursday night.“Because I love the game of basketball,” he said. “You can hear people say things like, ‘Oh, that it was likely I was going to go No. 1.’ But I guess you don’t know until you actually go through it. Hearing my name called and I was able to make it on stage without a tear, shake the commissioner’s hand, but in the interview my mom was standing beside me, and my emotions just took over.”Duke’s Zion Williamson greets fans as he is introduced during the NBA basketball draft Thursday, June 20, 2019, in New York. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)There might be tears of joy in New Orleans, too, after the Pelicans were able to get the Duke powerhouse who is considered one of the most exciting prospects in years.The 6-foot-7, 285-pounder compiled a college career worth of highlights into just one season, becoming the third freshman to be voted player of the year by The Associated Press.His assault on the rims made him a favorite of college basketball fans, but his game is more than just dunks. Williamson averaged 22.6 points and 8.9 rebounds while shooting 68% from the field.Wearing a white suit, he hugged members of his family and NBA Commissioner Adam Silver after his name was called first at Barclays Center.Williamson will step into an open position in New Orleans, which recently agreed to trade All-Star Anthony Davis, the last freshman to win the AP award, to the Los Angeles Lakers.“I’m going to do anything to win. I’m just going to do anything to win,” Williamson said.The Memphis Grizzlies also quickly addressed a positional need by taking Murray State’s Ja Morant with the No. 2 pick. The Grizzlies agreed to trade Mike Conley, their longtime point guard, to Utah a day earlier.They got a good replacement in Morant, who led Division I with 10 assists per game as a sophomore while averaging 24.5 points.“I have some big shoes to fill in Mike Conley,” Morant said. “He’s a great player. I wish him the best. Like I said before, it just means the Grizzlies see a lot in me.”RJ Barrett then made it two Duke freshmen within the top-three picks when the New York Knicks took the guard who actually edged out Williamson to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference in scoring. Knicks fans hoped they would get Williamson after finishing with the worst record in the league but seemed happy to end up with Barrett, loudly cheering and chanting “RJ! RJ!” when the pick was announced.“That was great,” Barrett said. “I’m glad that the city wants me here as much as I want to be here.”Duke’s RJ Barrett shows off a jersey after being selected as the third pick overall by the New York Knicks during the NBA basketball draft Thursday, June 20, 2019, in New York.

Shipping Firm Fined USD 1 Mn for Pollution Crimes

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Pixabay Japanese shipping company Nitta Kisen Kaisha Ltd. was sentenced for obstruction of justice and falsification of an Oil Record Book to cover-up intentional oil pollution from its vessel Atlantic Oasis.Nitta Kisen Kaisha Ltd. (Nitta), that delivered steel products to Wilmington, NC, admitted that its engineers failed to document the illegal discharge of oily wastes from the vessel’s fuel and lubrication oil purifier systems, as well as discharges of oily bilge waste from the bilge holding tank and from the vessel’s bilges.During a U.S. Coast Guard inspection of the vessel on May 17, 2017, a junior engineering crewmember provided information to the inspectors about how the oily wastes were being discharged by the order of Chief Engineer Jihnyun Youn.The crewmember also showed U.S. Coast Guard inspectors where the hoses that were used for the discharges were hidden.Chief Engineer Youn lied to the inspectors about the existence of a Sounding Log, which is typically used in the industry to record the fluid levels of various tanks in the engine room. By the end of the inspection, Chief Engineer Youn had admitted to ordering the illegal discharges and admitted that there was a Sounding Log.Nitta was ordered to pay a fine of USD 1 million, placed on probation for a period of three years and further ordered to implement a court-approved comprehensive Environmental Compliance Plan as a special condition of probation, which will be audited throughout probation.Youn had previously been convicted and sentenced for falsification of the vessel’s Oil Record Book. He was placed on probation for one year and ordered to pay a fine of USD 5,500.last_img read more
