Hatton wins second straight Euro Tour title

MONZA, Italy – Tyrrell Hatton sunk a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole to win the Italian Open on Sunday for his second European Tour victory in two weeks. Last week, Hatton retained his title at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on the storied Old Course at St. Andrews in Scotland. Now the Englishman is up to fifth in the Race to Dubai rankings. It looked like Hatton was heading for a three-man playoff before he rolled his final putt into the bottom of the cup and unleashed a series of fist pumps to celebrate the Rolex Series victory. Full-field scores from the Italian Open ”I had a good feeling standing over it, even though my hands were shaking and my knees were shaking,” Hatton said. A day after celebrating his 26th birthday, Hatton birdied five of the last seven holes for a bogey-free 65 to finish at 21 under. ”It was a battle with myself today,” said Hatton, who had a slow front nine. ”But my caddie kept saying it would come in the end and it did. … I got a hot streak with the putter, which helps a lot.” Fellow Englishman Ross Fisher and Kiradech Aphibarnrat of Thailand tied for second, one stroke behind, while third-round leader Matt Wallace finished fourth at 19 under. Defending champion and home favorite Francesco Molinari finished in a tie for sixth. Hatton took home a first-place check of around $1.1 million, the biggest prize in an increased purse of $7 million this year as part of the buildup to the 2022 Ryder Cup outside Rome. Crowds were large throughout the week at the Golf Club Milano, next to Monza’s Formula One circuit. read more

Best Bets for the Weekend: Fall festivals, Michael J. Fox, party at the library

first_imgThe Overland Park Fall Festival in downtown.There are definitely no shortage of ways to celebrate this fall, whether it’s venturing out to an autumnal festival or gathering around the television cheering on our amazing Chiefs. Here’s some of the most fun things happening this weekend in our Northeast Johnson County neck of the woods…The Overland Park Fall Festival is always a great time, but especially when it actually feels like fall. Check out the parade through Downtown Overland Park, the sweet arts and crafts fair, the always lovely Farmers’ Market, three stages of concerts and lots of food on Saturday.We’ve always found Pumpkin Hollow at Deanna Rose to be a nice and low-key experience to grab pumpkins and have some fall fun. It starts this weekend.It’s about time we all took another visit Back to the Future. On Saturday Shawnee Mission Park hosts Evening in the Park, with food, drink and M-80’s, a 1980’s tribute band. Additionally, September is Deaf Awareness Month and JCPRD welcomes members of the Deaf Community to enjoy closed captioning for the movie.I honestly don’t know what we’d do without the Johnson County Library. It would be hard for me to overstate the impact it has had on our family’s life. This Saturday is the library’s major fundraiser, Library Lets Loose. It’s a great way to have fun and support this wonderful community resource.last_img read more

How authentic are photographic memories?

first_imgMomentous eventsMany of us have experienced momentous personal or world events for which even years later, our memories seem just as vivid and detailed as a photograph taken on the day. Yet studies show that these so-called “flashbulb memories” are far from photographic.In one study, American students were surveyed the day after the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York in 2001 and asked to document the circumstances in which they first heard the news of these attacks, plus details of an everyday event they had recently experienced. Then either one, six, or 32 weeks later, the students were surveyed about the same two events again.Exceptional memoriesThe results showed that participants judged their everyday memories as less and less vivid over time. Their reports of these memories also became less detailed over time, and less consistent with their initial reports. In contrast, participants reported their 9/11 memories to be equally as vivid after 32 weeks as on the day after the attacks. But importantly, the memory reports showed that these “flashbulb memories” had in fact lost just as much detail over time as the everyday memories, and gained just as many inconsistencies.If our flashbulb memories aren’t photographic, then what about other highly compelling kinds of memories? For example, there are many historical and contemporary cases of people with astounding memory capabilities, who can visually absorb seemingly impossible amounts of information with very little effort, as if snapping mental photographs for later review in the mind’s eye. But by and large, these so-called “memory athletes” appear to hone their skills through intense practice and age-old memorising techniques, rather than mental photography. Only very rarely have apparent exceptions to this rule been identified, and these cases can serve as particular conundrums for sceptics.Setting memory athletes aside, we might instead consider another exceptional group of people: those with so-called “highly superior autobiographical memory” (HSAM), who appear capable of remembering each day of their lives since childhood in incredible, often verifiable detail.As more and more of these people have been discovered, many have been the subjects of scientific studies, which suggest that their memory abilities are not a result of practice but are largely unintentional. This ability is indeed amazing, but sceptics might argue that even these people’s memories cannot be called photographic. Indeed, one study of 20 people with HSAM found they were just as susceptible to false memories as a group of control participants of a similar age.Photographs fadeSo we might be willing to concede to sceptics, then, that although memories sometimes seem incredibly detailed, accurate, and consistent, few if any of them are truly like photographic records frozen in time.But on second thoughts, don’t all these findings tell us that our memories, in fact, are very much like photographs? After all, even long before the terms “post-truth” and “fake news” gained currency, photographs were never wholly reliable sources.Like our memories, vividly detailed photographs can turn out to be doctored and distorted; they can misrepresent the events that occurred. Like our memories, we don’t always view photographs with an objective eye, but through the lens of our personal agendas and biases. And like our memories, a printed photograph will fade over time, even though we might continue to value it just the same.In all of these respects at least, it’s easy to see that every single one of us has photographic memory, just maybe not in the way we first thought.By Robert Nash, Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Aston UniversityThis article was originally published on The Conversation. Read the original article. Since the invention of photography itself, people have used photograph-themed metaphors when thinking and talking about memories and remembering. When we want to retain memories of everyday events for example, we take “mental snapshots”, and when we think back to momentous events, we regard them as “flashbulb moments”. But are memories ever truly like photographs?A large number of people certainly believe so. In fact, in one recent survey of the general public from the US and UK, 87% agreed —- at least to some degree —- that “some people have ‘true’ photographic memories”. Yet, when the same statement was put to members of an esteemed scientific society for memory research, only a third of the participants agreed.The many scientists who are sceptical about the existence of photographic memories know, of course, that plenty of memories do seem highly photographic to people. However, for these sceptics, none of the available evidence so far is enough to fully convince them. Share on Twitter Email Share on Facebookcenter_img Pinterest Share LinkedInlast_img read more

Wireless Innovation Forum Releases List of First Six CBRS Approved Test Labs

first_imgThe Wireless Innovation Forum (WInnForum) has announced the names of first six test labs set to bear the “WInnForum CBRS Approved” logo for Citizen’s Broadband Radio Service Device (CBSD) testing for WInnForum standards compliance.The CBRS CBSD Standards approved labs are: According to Lee Pucker, CEO of the WInnForum, approval of WInnForum standards certified test labs provide a significant step towards commercialization of the CBRS Band and that these approvals are to be considered as the first wave of WInnForum CBRS Approved test labs with more to follow.The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will be certifying CBSDs against CFR 47 Part 96 using FCC Authorized Test Labs. Among other requirements, obtaining an FCC certification requires demonstrating that the CBSD meets the general and technical requirements for communicating with the Spectrum Access System (SAS). The FCC has stated in the “Licensed Service Rules and Procedures” for Part 96 that conformance with the WInnForum SAS to CBSD Interface Specification (WINNF-TS-0016) as demonstrated by testing against the WInnForum CBSD Test Specification (WINNF-TS-0122) meets this criteria, with a caveat that the test lab is “recognized by WInnForum.”Accordingly, the WInnForum is facilitating CBSD certification testing, against this test specification by approving FCC approved test labs to run the WInnForum CBSD tests. In December 2017, WInnForum selected CTIA to run the test lab approval program. WInnForum supports the development and advancement of spectrum sharing technologies based on the three-tier architecture detailed in 3.5 GHz CBRS Band rules defined by the FCC. The Forum recently announced the completion of the full set of baseline standards required for WInnForum certification of CBRS equipment. This watershed event allows the finalization of CBRS products for official testing and sets the stage for the rollout of commercial CBRS networks.

The win completed a dominant two night, two game sweep of Elyria and improved the Bee’s overall record to 10 – 5 as they head into a crucial rematch at home against the Strongsville Mustangs tomorrow night.The Bee’s overcame a 1-0 deficit in the first inning and never looked back from there. They scored 1 to tie it in the second, followed by a four run explosion in the third inning that put the game away as it gave them a 5 – 1 lead they would not relent. Right Fielder Austin Provost had the game of his life, with several big hits along the way that kept the Bee’s scoring and in command. Provost had a single in the first and then another single in the third inning that crashed against the fence or it will still be rolling. He remained the impossible out when he gathered another single in the fourth inning. He was robbed of a hit in the fifth inning or else it would have been a four hit performance.The Final Box score is brought to you by “Aimes & Hills”, hey, they could still make a comeback right?Medina – 8 runs on 7 hits with 1 errorElyria – 1 run on 3 hits with 5 errors.Winning Pitcher – Nick FryerLosing Pitcher – Ryan ShopeNews & Notes – The Bee’s wore their yellow sweep jerseys.Luminaries in attendance included – Charlie The BulldogThe Medina JV team won 11-1 Wining pitcher was Garret McLeod who went the distance.P – Chris FryerC – Jake Smith1B – John Curtis2B – Collin WintersSS – Cade Pipoly3B – Bryce FinkLF – Robbie HansenCF – Jordan FultzRF – Austin ProvostYou can follow Vince McKee on twitter at VinceTheAuthor Related TopicsAustin ProvostElyriaMedina Bees Vince McKeelast_img read more

6th ODI: New Zealand beat Sri Lanka to seal series win

first_imgNew Zealand clinched a 4-1 series victory over Sri Lanka by winning Sunday’s sixth game of the seven-match one-day series by 120 runs.Kane Williamson made 97, Ross Taylor 96 and Corey Anderson scored 40 and took 3 for 37 as New Zealand defended their total of 315 for 8, dismissing Sri Lanka for just 195 in 40.3 overs in a match laced with umpiring controversy.New Zealand’s strong form bodes well for the upcoming World Cup, which they co-host with Australia. Their six innings in the series so far, including the rained-out second match in Auckland, have contained four centuries by four different batsmen and five half-centuries by five different players.New Zealand and Sri Lanka meet in the opening World Cup match in Christchurch on February 14.Williamson and Taylor provided the foundation of the New Zealand innings with a partnership of 117 for the third wicket which lifted the home side to 176 for 3 and ended when Taylor ran out Williamson in the 35th over.Taylor atoned by going on to make a large score but also fell with a century in sight. New Zealand were on target for a score close to the 360 for 5 they achieved on the same pitch in the fifth match on Friday but the innings fizzled with three run outs.There was some early controversy when New Zealand opener Martin Guptill (28) had two let-offs: one when he was surprisingly given not out to an lbw appeal when the Decision Review System was out of order, and another when the TV umpire ruled an edged delivery had not carried to Kumar Sangakkara despite the Sri Lanka wicketkeeper appearing to get his gloves under the ball.advertisementGuptill fell soon after, given out caught behind on replay review after the field umpire initially said not out. Tillakaratne Dilshan (21) and stand-in captain Lahiru Thirimanne (29) gave Sri Lanka a slow but sound start in their run chase, putting on 56 in 13 overs for the first wicket.Kumar Sangakkara then took over the leadership role and scored 81 from 66 balls in an effort to propel Sri Lanka to a win which could keep alive chances of squaring the series. But he was party to two of the three run outs that blighted an innings that rapidly deteriorated from 146 for 3 to all out for 195.Left-arm spinner Daniel Vettori, returning to the side for his 284th one day international to overtake Stephen Fleming as New Zealand’s most-capped one-day player applied the brakes in the middle overs, bowling eight overs for 22 runs.Kyle Mills also returned to the New Zealand lineup after missing the previous matches in the series while recovering from injury. He bowled six overs for 29 runs. Anderson took the role of the wicket-taker and dismissed Dilshan, Mahela Jayawardene (9), Dimuth Karunaratne (9) and Thisara Perera (2) to enforce New Zealand’s claim to a series victory.”It was a thorough performance today against a very good Sri Lankan team,” New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum said. “The way we went about posting 315 and the partnerships we built along the way was very clinical and the bowlers did a very good job as well on a very true surface.”Sri Lanka’s third-straight loss to New Zealand may cause some concern with only one match remaining in the series in Wellington on Thursday and with the World Cup fast approaching.”Our concern is death bowling,” Thirimanne said. “We bowled 30 or 35 overs very well but the last 15 overs but we couldn’t get wickets and we also leaked runs.”Our fast bowlers don’t have much experience so it’s a learning curve for the younger bowlers and hopefully we can make it right in the World Cup.”last_img read more
