Kevin Babington Update: Funds still needed for treatment

first_imgFor the many of you who contact me regularly and are aware of Silver Oak’s involvement in Kevin’s recovery I’m sending this, another update, to be transparent and efficient. I must start by telling you the patience, valor, kindness to all around him, and outright tenacity Kevin exhibits every day is beyond inspiring. He is concerned about everybody other than himself. In short, it’s the Kevin we always knew albeit dealing with an extraordinary challenge.Kevin and Dianna remain very much immersed in this sport in every way caring for clients, growing their sales and training business and lending their considerable expertise everywhere in the sport possible. Kevin continues to make physical progress and in fact Diana and Kevin just returned from the Mayo clinic. Based on his considerable progress and overall health he has been entered into a very limited stem cell trial for the month of April at the Mayo clinic, one of a dozen such individuals. The first such trial saw a shocking percentage of the participants regain considerable mobility.Through all this nobody has heard Kevin complain, his continual comments to me amplify his concern for everybody around him never speaking a word about his discomfort which is considerable. The monumental patience, focus, and aptitude to see the big longer-term picture is staggering. His dedication to his physical therapy has mystified his doctors.Our community has continued to come forward financially supporting the considerable cost of his care. The trial at the Mayo clinic will not be covered by insurance and continued donations to one of either the Babington Family Trust or the Babington Foundation are still very much needed. Even small donations add up and those are best made to: The Babington Family Trust with checks sent to: PO Box 771 Gwynedd Valley, PA – 19437 or you can donate via GoFundMe.

Well the sun certainly shone on Andrew Blackman as he recorded a convincing win, racking up 40 points in his final outing this trip.Second place became a tussle between two high handicappers as Stu Brown and Barry Oats both had 38 points. Stu had the better back nine. Petur Petursson rounded out the placings with an excellent 37 points off his handicap of six to record the lowest gross of the day.Near pins went to Andrew Blackman (A flight), Takeshi Hakozaki (A flight), Stu Brown (B flight),Consolation ‘best nines’ by non-winners came from Stuart Thompson (front, 16pts) and Rowan Lucas (back, 20pts).Friday, Sept. 27, Pattavia – Stableford1st Takeshi Hakozaki (14) 38pts2nd George Mueller (15) 36pts3rd Phil Davies (13) 35pts4th Andrew Purdie (10) 35ptsIn contrast to our previous game, it was back to our, currently, usual numbers as twenty three golfers headed for Pattavia.Weather was fine and stayed that way for all but the final group which had some drizzle approaching the last hole. Once again the course was in immaculate condition and the greens are still sensibly paced, but we need to be aware of lots of tricky contoursThe scores were on the low side of usual here, but golf journeyman Takeshi Hakozaki found enough of the course to his liking to have 38 points on his card at the end. Takeshi is a consistent golfer and this was not his first Green Jacket.George Mueller who had a day we know he is capable of, but not regularly enough, came in second with 36 points. Then Phil Davies won a countback over Andrew Purdie for third place, both with good scores of 35 points.Near pins went to Andrew Purdie (A flight), Kevin LaBar (A flight), Bill Stewart (B flight), and once again one green failed to attract a ball.Keith Melbourne returned from the UK with a nice bottle of drink with a Black Label, which he put up for a prize. Thank You Keith, from Rowan Lucas who won the long putt contest and the bottle.Consolation ‘best nines’ were posted by Petur Petursson (front, 19pts) and Steve Jones (back, 20pts).Rowan Lucas, a visitor from Australia, had a mixed day.

2011: Tendulkar’s World Cup dream finally comes true

first_imgIndia defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets in the final to win their second World Cup titleThe tenth edition of the World Cup returned to the subcontinent after 15 years and was jointly hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Pakistan, who were also scheduled to be a co-host, were stripped off their hosting rights following the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team in 2009.A total of fourteen teams took part, including ten full members(Australia, India, Pakistan, South Africa, New Zealand, England, Sri Lanka, West Indies, Zimbabwe and Bangladesh) and four associate members(Canada, Ireland, Kenya and Netherlands) of the ICC.Pakistan clearly dominated Group A with five wins alongside a rare defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the group stage. Sri Lanka, who won four games, finished second followed by Australia and New Zealand to make the quarter-finals.In Group B, South Africa clinched the top spot with five wins and just one loss. India managed to finish second with four wins alongside one loss and a tie. England and West Indies managed to finish third and fourth in the group to seal their quarter-finals berth.Though England managed to qualify for the knockout stage, their World Cup campaign was jolted by the shock losses to minnows Ireland and Bangladesh in the group stage. On one hand where Ireland pulled off a shock run-chase of a mammoth 327 runs(thanks to 63-ball 113 by Kevin O’Brien) against England, Bangladesh’s fiery bowling attack inflicted the second defeat on Andrew Strauss’ men.advertisementThe first quarter-final saw Shahid Afridi’s majestic spell of 4/30 reducing West Indies to a shambolic 112 runs and Pakistan chasing the paltry total under 21 overs. Riding on Yuvraj Singh’s all-round performance(2/44 & 57*), India knocked out defending champions Australia in the second quarter-final.South Africa looked set to seal their semi-finals berth after reducing New Zealand to a mere 221 runs in the third quarter-final. But, Jacob Oram(4/39) and Nathan McCullum(3/24) ensured the Proteas fell short by 49 runs. In the fourth quarter-final, Upul Tharanga(102) and Tillakaratne Dilshan(108) powered the Lankans to a 10-wicket win over England.Sri Lanka’s five-wicket win over New Zealand and India’s 29-run triumph over arch-rivals Pakistan in the semis ensured the progress of two Asian teams in the coveted final for the first time in the history of the World Cup. It was also the first time since the 1992 World Cup that the World Cup final did not feature Australia.MS Dhoni-led India were clearly the favourites to clinch the World title but Mahela Jayawardene(103) ensured Sri Lanka achieved a competitive total of 274/6 after batting first. In reply, India lost Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar cheaply to Lasith Malinga. But, Gautam Gambhir(97) played the anchor role while skipper Dhoni(91) finished off the game in style.India clinched the World Cup title for the second time in the history of the tournament following their six-wicket win over the Lankans. It was also Sachin Tendulkar’s first World Cup win in six tournament appearances for India.Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh was declared the Man of the Series for his 362 runs and 15 wickets in the tournament. Pakistan’s Shahid Afridi(21) and India’s Zaheer Khan(21) were the leading wicket-takers while Sri Lanka’s Tillakaratne Dilshan(500) turned out to be the top run-scorer in the tournament.last_img read more

RBI is more than autonomous but govt is the sovereign Das

first_imgMumbai: Asserting that the Reserve Bank is more than autonomous, governor Shaktikanta Das Friday said though the central bank engages with the government in free and frank discussions, there is no interference from it when it comes to taking decisions. Das said the differences of opinion between the government and the monetary authority happens in all the countries as the perspectives are different, but it is essential to discuss, talk and resolve the differences. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: Icra”Let me tell you, there is lot of interaction between the RBI and the government. But, so far as decision-making is concerned or taking a final call on any issue is concerned, I can tell you, with all my confidence, that they are taken by the RBI and the RBI is more than 100 percent autonomous in decision-making. Nobody interferes in my decision-making,” Das told an event organised by the media house India Today group. He said there has to be exchanges of ideas and explaining one’s position to the other is necessary as it creates a harmonious and healthy relationship.

There will be differences of opinions, there is a difference of opinion between the RBI and the government on several issues but we do talk and these discussions are internally, he explained. “If at the drop of a hat, I rush to the media and make a statement expressing my differences with the government, then what it is going to achieve,” Das asked and said it is desirable that such expression of dissent is done internally. “In fact, let me may tell you when you have such discussions, the central bank carries greater weight in getting things which it wants to get done,” the governor said. It can be recalled that during the tenors of the past two governors–Raghuram Rajan and Urjit Patel–the differences between the government and the Mint Road began to spill onto the public domain.

first_imgLondon: A UK High Court judge on Wednesday ruled in favour of India in a decades-old legal dispute with Pakistan over funds belonging to the Nizam of Hyderabad at the time of Partition in 1947 and deposited in a London bank account. The Nizam’s descendants, Prince Mukarram Jah the titular eighth Nizam of Hyderabad and his younger brother Muffakham Jah, had joined hands with the Indian government in the legal battle against the Pakistan government over around 35 million pounds lying with NatWest Bank plc here. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange frameworkIn his judgment handed down at the Royal Courts of Justice in London, Justice Marcus Smith ruled that the “Nizam VII was beneficially entitled to the Fund and those claiming in right of Nizam VII the Princes and India are entitled to have the sum paid out to their order”. “Pakistan’s contentions of non-justiciability by reason of the foreign act of state doctrine and non-enforceability on the grounds of illegality both fail,” the verdict notes. The dispute revolves around 1,007,940 pounds and nine shillings transferred in 1948 from the then Nizam of Hyderabad to the high commissioner in Britain of the newly-formed state of Pakistan. That amount has since grown into 35 million pounds as the Nizam’s descendants, supported by India, claimed it belongs to them and Pakistan counter-claimed that it is rightfully theirs.last_img read more

Lille France Willians brilliant late strike ga

first_imgLille (France): Willian’s brilliant late strike gave Chelsea a precious a 2-1 win away to Lille that they will hope kickstarts their Champions League campaign, but it was the young stars in Frank Lampard’s side who stole the show again. The Brazilian volleyed home in the 78th minute on Wednesday to decide the game under the roof at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy on what was his 300th appearance for the club. Tammy Abraham had earlier put Chelsea in front on his 22nd birthday with his eighth goal already this season, only for Victor Osimhen to equalise for Lille. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuChelsea are now off the mark in Group H after losing at home to Valencia a fortnight ago, although it is Ajax who continue to top the section with a maximum six points. “Overall it was a good game. It’s never an easy place to play. Give it to the team, what a fantastic performance,” Abraham told BT Sport. Lampard’s team face Ajax next and will do so with renewed belief after this potentially pivotal victory. “It is such a tough place — the roof was on, the crowd were up for it, the speed in their team and on the counter-attack especially was very evident, so we had to be ready for it and I thought our performance was really good,” said Lampard. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersIt was a game decided by one of the most experienced players on the pitch but which was bristling with exciting young talent as these clubs adjust to seeing their standout players — Eden Hazard on one side, Nicolas Pepe on the other — depart in the close season. Lampard fielded two 24-year-olds as well as four more players aged 22 or under in his line-up here, as teenager Reece James started as a right wing-back in a 3-4-1-2 system. James only made his top-team debut for the club a week ago in a League Cup tie against fourth-tier Grimsby Town. His second-half replacement, Callum Hudson-Odoi, set up the winning goal. “This isn’t a game for niceties, we have to go and win these matches and improve all the time and there were loads of signs of team improvement tonight, and individuals,” Lampard added. “The young players are responding and they have to keep doing it because the Champions League level is something else.” Much has been made of Lampard’s promotion of youth this season in response to Chelsea’s transfer ban, although their team here also featured N’Golo Kante, with the France midfielder returning from his latest spell on the sidelines. Indeed, the average age of Chelsea’s team at kick-off was actually a year older than that of Lille. Chelsea took a 22nd-minute lead when Fikayo Tomori’s ball into the box was not dealt with by the home defence, and Abraham — capped by England but eligible for Nigeria through his father — emerged to control and fire home. Lille actually looked the better side going forward for long spells and Luiz Araujo was denied by a good Kepa Arrizabalaga save just after the half-hour mark. Moments later they were level, Bamba sending in a corner from the left for Osimhen, the gangly 20-year-old Nigerian striker signed in the summer, to head in his seventh of the campaign. Jorginho struck the outside of the post with a first-time strike from range just before half-time, while Kepa tipped a Benjamin Andre header around the post early in the second half. However, the introduction of Hudson-Odoi, the youngest of the lot at just 18, for James midway through the second half, and subsequent change of formation, breathed new life into the visitors going forward. Mason Mount was denied by Mike Maignan soon after, and just 12 minutes remained when winger Hudson-Odoi crossed from the left all the way to the back post where Willian connected with a volley that bounced down into the ground, over the goalkeeper’s head and in.last_img read more

Developers expect slight demand uptick in festival season

first_imgNew Delhi: Real estate developers have largely witnessed subdued demand and low absorption of residential properties in the past few years, but with the latest reduction in the RBI repo rate and few banks launching repo rate-linked home loans, market players feel that the traditional festival demand would witness a slight uptick this year. The Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) Governor Shaktikanta Das on Friday announced a 25 basis points (bps) cut in the repo, or short-term lending rate for commercial banks, to 5.15 per cent.
