19 Sep 2019 England’s Senior Men follow European glory with Home International crown England completed a golden double when they won the Senior Men’s Home Internationals at Alnmouth Golf Club.The English team (pictured above) were crowned as European Men’s Senior champions a couple of weeks ago in Denmark and they added the domestic Home Internationals title to their name when they halved on the last day in Northumberland with last year’s champions Scotland.England and Scotland set up the decider after both teams beat Ireland and Wales in the earlier rounds and it was the English who won on points when they halved a tense closing match 4 ½ -4 ½.The Scots led 2 ½ – ½ after the foursomes but they knew they also needed a big win in the singles to overhaul their rivals and in the end it was the English who battled back to tie the match and secure the silverware.Scotland’s Ronnie Clark beat England’s Ian Attoe 3 & 2 in the top singles but wins by Rich Jones and Paul Wharton got England back on track before Scotland regained the initiative when Derek Paton beat Alan Mew. Richard Norton also supplied a point for England with a 6&5 victory over Richard Johnston but it was only when Rupert Kellock beat Robert Smith by one hole in the final singles that the match was tied.“It was very tight all day,” said English captain, Roy Smethurst, before announcing he was to stand down as captain after five years at the helm.“We were two down after the first two games in the foursomes so the half in the last game was crucial to give us a toehold in the match.“We knew we’d face a tough match against the Scots and that’s exactly what we got. We’re just delighted to secure another victory to add to the one in Denmark. It’s been a great couple of weeks for us all.“I’ve decided to step down as captain at the top,” he added. “It has been great while it has lasted but I can’t stand the pressure anymore so it’s time to pass it on to a younger man.”Photograph credit: Leaderboard Tags: Senior Home Internationals
By Jennifer Driscoll |With falling autumn leaves also comes the roar of leaf blowers. Despised by many with sensitive ears, leaf blowers have become regulated and even banned in various towns. But why do they make so much noise?Denis Mitchell, a diesel mechanics teacher at the Monmouth County Vocational School District, said a combination of factors is to blame for the noise leaf blowers produce. Most leaf blowers use 2-stroke engines which have to run at very high revolutions per minute (rpms) in order to reach combustion. This fast rotation makes the engines very loud. Because they are air-cooled, the engines have very thin walls, meaning they cannot easily absorb this sound.Leaf blowers work using a motor that powers a high speed fan. As the blades turn, the fan pulls in outside air from side vents and spins it, forcing it through the opening at the front of the blower. The force created by rotating the air causes it to come out of the tube at extremely high speeds. Depending on the type of blower, the air speed can range from 50–250 mph.Whether the leaf blower is powered using electricity or gasoline also affects the amount of noise produced. The wind speed of gasoline blowers is much higher, exceeding 150 mph, while the speed of electric blowers generally ranges from 50–100 mph. Because of this, gasoline powered blowers are much more powerful, but also produce much more noise.And finally, the high rates of speed of the motors also means a leaf blower’s exhaust system adds to the noise.Whether you find them indispensable or wish everyone just used a rake, it can be helpful to know the leaf blower regulations in your area. Here are the regulations for the Two River area towns:Atlantic HighlandsCurrently there are no regulations on leaf blower use.Colts NeckCurrently there are no regulations on leaf blower use.Fair Haven Leaf blowers can be used from 8 a.m. to sunset on weekdays, and from 9 a.m. to sunset on weekends.HighlandsLeaf blowers can be used from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. on weekends and legal holidays.

The primary set glided by far to Muguruza, who didn’t have a single probability to interrupt. He obtained caught in entrance of Barty’s affected person sport, a tennis participant who doesn’t thoughts getting into lengthy exchanges, who runs rather a lot and prepares the factors effectively along with her insistent and technical backhand reduce. He makes use of it to assault and additionally to defend himself. It is extremely annoying for rivals who, just like the Spanish, exceed 1.80 tall.The response got here when Garbiñe realized that moreover percussion as normal, nothing occurred to place extra balls in play. Within the tactical struggle it was profitable. After losing 4 break factors within the fourth sport of the second set, he broke Barty’s service within the sixth. He couldn’t consolidate his benefit and a tiebreaker was reached wherein he was significantly better. It was obligatory to complete off the duty and it was not simple. The aussie struck first, raised a 30-40 at first and then positioned a threatening 3-1; Muguruza shortened and she put distance once more because of a double lack of the Caracas, those that harm and who commits with unlucky frequency. Though the Garbiñe of 2020 doesn’t quit, Barty didn’t miss the chance to win as quickly as doable earlier than an opponent that accrued unforced errors (30 by 18 of the winner). It’s the place it’s for one thing and immediately is superior. Ashleigh Barty, world primary, stopped Garbiñe Muguruza’s trajectory in Doha. With a efficiency loaded with persistence and strategically effectively grounded, the present champion of Roland Garros and the WTA Finals beat the previous leader of the rating and winner of two Grand Slams by 6-1, 6-7 (4) and 6-Three in 1h: 53. The sport, which ended previous midnight native, was performed in a chilly surroundings as a result of climate (17 levels with breeze) and the poor public that adopted him within the stands. ORA disgrace for Garbiñe, who leaves Qatar with the satisfaction of going by the very best run of his profession by way of rounds. He had by no means reached the quarter in 5 tournaments in a row, as on this course wherein he accumulates 16 victories, six lower than final season. Barty de will measure this Friday with Kvitova, which appealed to Jabeur, and the opposite semifinal can be performed by Kuznetsova, who eradicated Bencic in full resurrection, and Sabalenka, who may with Zheng.

They’re giving back in a very healthy way, because these instruments will be used to bring about awareness of various health issues and also to teach our patients some of the dos and don’ts in terms of keeping their bodies healthy and also keeping their families healthy.“It is all-encompassing with what the Ministry’s vision is; trying to ensure that we take health to the people and we want to express our sincere appreciation for these instruments,” she added.She also highlighted that the hospitals who are recipients of the equipment should value the contributions that were made and recognise that this addition would add value to the service which they are expected to provide to the public.The idea behind these contributions is to reach out to Guyanese and educate them on a disease that they may have or the guidelines that are necessary to prevent such diseases.

Johnny Groene threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to Josh Jones in OT for the winning score. Keith Hamberg sealed the victory with an interception for the Panthers (2-0), who forced overtime with a 1-yard TD run by Nick Gramke with 35 seconds left in the fourth quarter. Independence’s Robbie Ward missed a 48-yard field goal in the final seconds of regulation that would have won it. “We never could stop them,” Coach Tom Knotts told The Charlotte Observer. “We had our best on their best, and they made big plays … I told our team it was coming, and I hated to say I told you so. “We have been living dangerously, this season and last. We opened the door for everybody. Now it’s over. We didn’t make plays or force turnovers.” Independence (1-1) had not lost since falling, 34-31, to Shelby Crest exactly seven years earlier, on Sept. 1, 2000, when this year’s team was in elementary school.
