Woods cleared for golf activities with no restrictions

first_imgView comments “We haven’t even addressed when he comes back to play again. We have not addressed one thing,” said Mark Steinberg, Woods’ agent at Excel Sports Management. “He wants to play this so conservatively.”Steinberg said Woods received a “good report” last week from doctors who performed fusion surgery on his lower back in April. Woods posted a video on Twitter on Oct. 7 of him hitting a smooth iron shot. Then on Sunday, Woods posted another video — in a red shirt, no less — hitting a driver.“Making progress,” he tweeted.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSFederer blasts lack of communication on Australian Open smogWoods, whose last victory was four years ago at the Bridgestone Invitational for his record 18th World Golf Championships title, has not played since he withdrew from the Dubai Desert Classic on Feb. 3 because of back spasms.Two months later, he had a fourth surgery on his back in 19 months. Woods first posted a video on Aug. 31 hitting pitch shots. Steinberg said doctors last week allowed Woods “to proceed with no restrictions,” which is when he began posting video of fuller golf shots.“He has started to hit balls at a more aggressive rate,” Steinberg said. “He feels really good, but he’s going to take it very slowly. I think he’s excited that he’s not feeling pain. That’s what gets him excited, being able to bend down and pick up his kids.“He’s taking it from wedges and short irons to the longer clubs. But he’s still doing it in a really cautious manner.”Woods was an assistant captain at the Presidents Cup two weeks ago, and he said then his priorities were to get his health in order, make sure he is pain-free and then wait on word from his doctors.“I’m still training. I’m getting stronger,” he said on Sept. 27. “But I certainly don’t have my golf muscles trained.”ADVERTISEMENT Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ MOST READ Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Woods last year returned after 15 months to play in his Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, where he finished 15th in an 18-man field.

Industry man wanted for Cummings Lodge murder

first_imgAlmost one month after the gruesome murder of Anita Mohan, whose battered body was found in her Cummings Lodge, Greater Georgetown home, the Police have issued a wanted bulletin for the second suspect.Damion Hopkinson, 27, of Lot 55 Industry, East Coast Demerara, is wanted by the Police in connection with the murder, which occurred on September 5.Murder accused: Kevin MohanSo far, the dead woman’s nephew, Kevin Mohan, also called Azad Ally and “Chucky”, 22, was charged for the murder, but the Police have since been on the hunt for the second suspect.Wanted: Damion HopkinsonSlain: Anita MohanUpon his arrest, the nephew allegedly told detectives that his now dead aunt sold drugs at home apart from selling greens and vegetables during the day. He claimed that on the day in question, a friend had purchased some drugs from the woman and left.The friend later returned and requested another package but on credit since he did not have money. He further stated that his now dead aunt refused to give credit which led to an argument.It was during the argument that the suspect and his accomplice dealt the woman several blows to the head.In an attempt to authenticate the statement, detectives revisited the scene to conduct an additional search but no illegal substance was found on the premises.The body of the 48-year-old greens vendor was discovered by her son lying in a pool of blood after he returned home from work. He immediately raised an alarm and the Police were summoned. The woman’s head was bashed in, with a single stab wound to her chest.A bloody rolling pin, suspected to be one of the murder weapons, was found in close proximity to her body, as well as a broken beer bottle.A pair of wet three-quarter pants was found in the washing area which led investigators to believe that after committing the murder, the main suspect might have washed off the blood.However, when contacted on Wednesday, Rosita Sarabjeet refuted the story given to the Police by Ally, claiming that her sister was a greens vendor and was never involved in any illegal activities.Meanwhile, an autopsy performed on the body of Mohan revealed that she sustained a chop to her head and one near her temple, along with a stab wound to her chin and one to her mouth. The perpetrators also cut off a portion of her tongue before strangling her.Anyone with information that can lead to the arrest of the wanted man is asked to contact the Police on 229-2289, 229-2557, 229-2750, 225-2227, 225-0575, 911 or at the nearest Police Station.last_img read more

Overseas private investigator hired to conduct probe

first_imgGafoors fireWithin a span of a few hours after reopening his bond, which was razed by a fire just four months ago, Abdool Sattaur Gafoor watched as the new bond went up in flames. Believing that there was nothing within the bond that could have started the fire, Gafoor has hired a private investigator to investigate the matter.The Chief Executive Officer of Gafoors on Thursday announced that an overseas-based private detective has been hired to work along with the Guyana Police Force, in finding out what started the fire.CEO Abdool Sattaur GafoorGafoor stated that based on the negative publicity that the second fire has brought on, he is confident that the private investigator will prove that it was not negligence that caused this disastrous fire.He explained that when the Gafoors Houston Complex was almost destroyed by the first blaze in May, it was due to the lack of fire prevention measures. However, this time around, he affirmed that all recommendations made by the Guyana Fire Service were adhered to and implemented.The company’s CEO expressed disappointment in the Chief Fire Officer’s remarks to the media earlier this week, saying “it’s the same crap… not enough diligence”.He stated that it was not “totally incorrect” that there were combustible items in the bond; explaining that there were a few cans of paint stored, “but it was not for commercial use, it was there to paint the building”.Gafoor added that after the first fire, the company had flown in an expert from the United Kingdom, who provided “practical solutions” to prevent the occurrence of another fire.He pointed out that despite what persons might think, he did everything within his power to prevent another fire and so it shocked him when he realised that in “just 10 hours after we opened the bond, it burnt down”.The most recent fire, he said, has placed a lot of financial strain on the company, noting that he feels disappointed and frustrated since he has always chosen to be at peace with everyone. He stated that he has treated all of his employees fairly, he has paid his taxes and he has opted to distance himself from politics.He is unable to understand what could have caused the fire. He lamented that all of his stocks for the Christmas season were destroyed, and that although he has insurance for the building and the stocks, he was not insured for the profits lost.Therefore, he stated that the Board of Directors has taken a decision to be acted upon in the event of a third fire, but he was not prepared to say what the decision was.“Within 64 years there has never been a fire,” he lamented.“It was literally impossible for it to take place,” he said, adding that Monday’s fire left him totally “lost for words”.“If you were in my place, what would you do if there was a third fire? It’s not that easy to start back again,” he said.Officer-in-Charge of Operations at the Guyana Fire Service, Compton Sparman has indicated that the department was also baffled by the fire since there was no electricity or any heat source to start the fire.He stated that the materials stored in the bond were tiles, white cement and a small amount of Christmas decorations.“So we want to know how it could propagate at that level. No electricity, if you look it is a bond that was constructed based on the last fire that they would have had. But because I think they cramp for space make they use the bond. No electricity, no form of heat source that dwells within, so we will have to dig deep. Nobody was inside,” he said, adding, “it started in Bond Six and confined in it. Now we have two vehicles with approximately 13 men working.”last_img read more

The Test of Friendship

first_imgPresident W.V.S. Tubman led Liberia for 27 years. After his first eight years, 1944-51, he ran to succeed himself for a second term, which was constitutionally for four years. He won that election. And weeks following the inauguration, people began staging demonstrations asking him to “succeed himself for another four year term of office.”This went on after each inauguration until 1964 when, now in his fifth term of office, President Tubman announced at the ruling True Whig Party convention in Buchanan, Grand Bassa County, that he would be retiring at the end of his fifth term of office.They told Tubman, “Mr. President, you have brought us into the middle of the sea. If you leave us now, we will drown.”Were they Tubman’s true friends? Wait and see.But convinced that they were, the President went on to accept their nomination for a sixth term of office; and in 1971, the nomination for a seventh term, which he won handily.And then Tubman flew to London for prostate surgery. There, following a successful operation, he was allowed to bleed to death—by whom?They say some of his “close friends and associates” were involved. But that is yet to be proven. Most of them who were there are now deceased. But President Tubman’s Personal Secretary, Ambassador D. Dueh Chieh, who was also in London with the President, told a friend following the funeral that something suspicious definitely happened in London. He told his lunch host and his wife, a newly wedded couple, “There is more than meets the eye.”A few weeks following the funeral, some of the same people who in 1964 had begged President Tubman to succeed himself for “another term of office,” came to the Centennial Pavilion and speaker after speaker blasted the late President, blaming him for all of Liberia’s underdevelopment woes. One of them was former Commerce and Industry Secretary A. Romeo Horton, who only 90 days earlier had delivered the address nominating Tubman for a seventh term of office!Had he and all the other passionate devotees in Buchanan been Tubman’s true friends? The answer is obvious.So what, may we ask, are friends for, if not to tell you the truth, or things that you need to hear to help you run your life, a better administration or better organization? Remember how Jesus flatly rejected any attempt by anyone to flatter him. Remember how, when He told Peter that He, Jesus, was going be killed, and Peter told him never to say such a thing! But Jesus, knowing fully well that it was His destiny to die for the salvation of humankind, told his chief disciple, “Get behind me Satan.”Do we see in real life what happens to people who thrive on flattery? They set themselves up for grand deception by surrounding themselves with yes men and women, people who tell them only what they (the leaders) want to hear.Who can guess what a most senior government official and close confidant of the current President of Liberia told a Daily Observer executive? This executive had been pleading with this government official to pay the substantial sum of money her Agency had been owing the newspaper over several years. The close Presidential confidant bluntly told the Observer official, “You don’t see all those bad things your husband has been writing against the President in his newspaper? I will not pay you one cent until he stops; and until the palava between these two good friends—your husband and the President—is fixed.”But once more we ask, what are true friends for, if not to tell each other the truth? Must we continuously flatter to reap the attendant benefits—job security, influence, power privilege and wealth? Is that true friendship?Who remembers what P. Clarence Parker, Chair of the National Investment Commission (NIC), told the Tribunal after the 1980 coup? “President Tolbert was a crazy man.”The Tribunal, shocked perhaps by what they had heard, threw two follow-up questions at Mr. Parker: “And you continued serving a crazy man? Why didn’t you resign?”Mr. Parker did not answer the question. A close friend and associate of one of our powerful decision makers presented a highly competent and honest candidate for an important GOL vacancy. Who can guess what this powerful official told the presenter?“I am not looking for competence, but loyalty.”Horton, Parker and so, so many others were “loyal”—or so they and their seniors—the Presidents of Liberia—thought. But what happened when the day of reckoning came?Go read in the Daily Observer library about Albert Porte and how he tried, for over a half century, to save Liberia by speaking truth to power and suffering severely for it. And because all these leaders did not listen, look again at what happened four years after Porte’s death in 1986, and subsequently. All ye who are running for President, are ye listening? Are ye reading?Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Hindus observe Maha Shivaratri 2019

first_imgTemples were filled with thousands of Hindus on Monday as prayers were offered for the festival of Maha Shivaratri, which is celebrated in worship to Lord Shiva.Shiva embodies the destroyer of evil and Maha Shivaratri translates to “Great Night of Shiva”. For this, prayers continue for many hours in which fruits and milk are offered at intervals along with flowers, bael leaves, honey, curd, rosewater and other components. Fasting is also essential along with meditation and yoga for spiritual enlightenment.Worshippers gathered around a sacred fire to offer grainsWhile other occasions are celebrated during the day, Shivaratri is celebrated during the night to depict the overcoming of darkness.The Guyana Sevashram Sangha on the East Coast of Demerara, which is popularly referred to as the Cove and John Ashram, was the centre of attraction for many, who graced the holy monastery to offer prayers and participate in the mass Havan ceremony, making some 108 offerings into the holy pyre.Two worshippers inside the Guyana Sevashram Sangha popularly known as the Cove and John Ashram on MondayAt the Ashram, the official ceremony was attended by Commissioners of the Ethnic Relations Commission and former Prime Minister, Samuel Hinds.Swami Shivashankarananda, who spearheads the operations, would have shared the concept of this observation and noted this auspicious occurrence is observed during the eleventh month in the Hindu calendar, commonly in February or March, and before the arrival of spring.According to the Shivapurana scriptures, when Shiva was asked by Parvathi what pleases him most, he listed the 14th night of the new moon, in the dark fortnight during the month of Phalgun as his favourite day, which is known as Shivaratri.Another tale states that the great Shiva saved the world during this night and as such, people worship him with immense enthusiasm. The Swami mentioned that different regions around the world have their beliefs of how the festival originated but the celebration remains consistent.“On this day, Shiva is said to have saved the world from destruction on the condition that people worship him with great pride and enthusiasm. Maha Shivaratri is a major festival within Hinduism because it marks the remembrance of overcoming darkness and ignorance in the world,” the scholar explained.“There are many other stories connected to this great occasion. There are three specific reasons to celebrate Maha Shivaratri. It is the day when Shiva appeared in the form of a Lingodbhav Murti, exactly at midnight,” he added.As customary, students from the Hindu College and other schools took some time to visit and offer prayers. One of the main activities throughout the year at the Ashram is this observance.Some temples were opened throughout the day, until midnight, while others held services at appropriate timings. The Radha Krishna Mandir on Camp and Quamina Streets catered for persons in Georgetown, by opening the temple for the entire day.Other participating groups at the Ashram this year included the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON).last_img read more
