Required fields are marked * Business News The distinctive headquarters for 89.3 KPCC on South Raymond Avenue in Pasadena.Southern California Public Radio filed suit Tuesday in Los Angeles against the U.S. Small Business Administration, seeking disclosure, under the Freedom of Information Act, of records that would reveal the names of all Paycheck Protection Program loan recipients and the amount of their loans.The radio network, which includes Pasadena-based public radio station KPCC-FM (89.3) and online news site LAist are a part, believes the public is entitled to know “how the hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars invested in the PPP have been spent.”Because of the “taxpayers’ huge investment in the PPP, revelations that large corporations have applied for, received, and in some cases returned under public pressure funds received under this program, and representations by the government that the PPP is intended to help small businesses, it is of paramount importance that the requested information be disclosed,” the suit states.An SBA spokesperson said the agency does not comment on pending litigation.According to the complaint, filed in federal court, SBA has failed to comply with statutory deadlines imposed by FOIA, its own regulations, and has unlawfully withheld PPA records from Southern California Public Radio.

They will receive their diplomas in May at the graduation ceremony.“That said, most of these students are within a single rotation of finishing their training,” Callaway said.He added that the students were matched at facilities locally and nationwide.“Some of them wound up a little farther down their list than they had hoped. Some students are obviously disappointed. Basically, they still have the opportunity to finish their training, which is the good news. The bad news is it might not have been where they had hoped,” Callaway said.“Most of them will very quickly adapt and be just fine,” he added.He said this was a good group of students with about six who want to pursue psychiatry. Callaway added that is a testament to the work of psychiatrist Dr. Bobby Jain and the new psychiatry residency program.Jarrod Tunnell of Las Cruces, N.M., is one who will pursue psychiatry. He was matched to UT Southwestern in Dallas.He decided on Texas Tech in Odessa after bonding with a secretary during a chat about green chili. She was from Las Cruces, as well, Tunnell said.Texas Tech also offered a combined medical doctor/master of business administration degree that can be finished in four years. Tunnell said the business degree will be useful if he wants to go into something administrative later or into private practice.“I thought the faculty were great, very friendly, a good culture. I was excited when I got accepted and it’s been good,” Tunnell said.He added that he thought his training in Odessa was great.“We have wonderful faculty since we’re here and not in Lubbock. We get more one-on-one training, which has been excellent. The community’s very supportive for psychiatry, especially (because) they just opened a residency program here. But the residency director he’s just very supportive of student learning and just an excellent educator. He did a wonderful job of teaching us and preparing us. I had a great experience and learned a lot. I got to make some close relationships with the coordinators and directors,” Tunnell said.Alice Fa is pursuing obstetrics and gynecology and matched to Texas Tech in Odessa and will be associated with Medical Center Hospital and Midland Memorial Hospital.“It’s been a great program. I obviously came through third year here and had great teachers and a great residency, great teaching experiences and a wonderful patient population. And they have a lot of opportunities for training,” Fa said.Mary Grady, who is pursuing psychiatry, was matched to Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. She is from Oswego, N.Y., in Upstate New York.“I was very excited about the match. I really wanted to go to Maine. I did an away rotation there and I loved it. It’s closer to my family, which is important to me but I love the program here, as well. I’ve been in Texas since I’ve been in high school. I’ve really loved what Texas can provide and the opportunities. I’ll be sad to leave it behind. I loved the teachers here and the attending and the hospitals here were great,” Grady said.Brenda Chavez from Gatesville is going for family medicine. She was matched with Texas Tech Health Sciences Center in Lubbock.“I’m very happy,” Chavez said. “It was actually my first choice.” Alice Fa will do her residency at Medical Center Hospital and Midland Memorial Hospital.

Any time anyone sneezes around me or coughs I get crazy. I don’t hang out with anyone, and when I say anyone I mean my daughter.“She coughed, I got angry and gave her a side-eye. I gave her that ‘angry Serena’ and then I got sad.“I was like, ‘Is she OK? Is there something wrong with my daughter? Is there anything I can do?’ I just don’t know what to do, so instead of being relaxed I’m really under a ton of stress.”Williams said that like many people she first thought the coronavirus wouldn’t affect her.“And then suddenly Indian Wells was cancelled and I was like, ‘Oh, OK, that’s weird but I have a little time off and I’m going to enjoy that time off,’” she said of her reaction when the prestigious ATP and WTA tournament in Indian Wells, California, was called off earlier this month.On edge: 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams says in a series of TikTok videos that social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic is causing her anxietyRead Also: AC Milan legend, son test positive for coronavirusBut as more tournament cancellations followed, Williams said she found herself feeling more anxiety.“It is what it is, we’ll get through this.

World Handicap System: new details announced

first_img The R&A and the USGA have today announced details of the new World Handicap System (WHS).It is designed to welcome more players, to make golf easier to understand and to provide all golfers with a handicap which is portable all around the globe.The system is expected to be launched in January 2020 and its features will include:• A minimal number of scores needed to obtain a new handicap• Allowing both competitive and recreational rounds to count for handicap purposes so a golfer’s handicap is more reflective of current ability• A consistent handicap that is portable from course to course and country to country through worldwide use of the USGA Course and Slope Rating System, already successfully used in more than 80 countries• An average-based calculation of a handicap, taken from the best eight out of the last 20 scores. The system will also be able to ‘remember’ good scores, even when they have dropped out of the last 20.• A calculation that considers the impact that abnormal course and weather conditions on a player’s performance each day• Daily handicap revisions, taking account of the course and weather conditions calculation• A limit of net double bogey on the maximum hole score (for handicapping purposes only)• A maximum handicap limit of 54.0, regardless of gender, to encourage more golfers to measure and track their performance and so increase their enjoyment of the game.England Golf is working closely with The R&A and the USGA to help introduce the new system and is running workshops for golf clubs this spring to outline the proposals and their impact. More detailed workshops will be run in the autumn.Chief Executive Nick Pink commented: “We’re joining golfers around the world to welcome this new system. It shows that golf is modernising and becoming easier to understand and I’m sure it will encourage more people to play, get a handicap and enjoy our sport, which is very good news for the future of the game.”The WHS looks set for a great reception. Research was conducted in 15 countries, involving 52,000 people. Of these, 76% were in support of WHS, 22% percent were willing to consider its benefits and only 2% were opposed. This was followed by focus groups when over than 300 golf administrators and golfers offered extensive feedback on features of the proposed new system.This feedback has helped shape the WHS, which has been developed by the USGA and The R&A with support from each handicapping authority as well as the Japan Golf Association and Golf Canada.Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA, commented: “For some time, we’ve heard golfers say ‘I’m not good enough to have a handicap,” or ‘I don’t play enough to have a handicap.’ We want to make the right decisions now to encourage a more welcoming and social game. We’re excited to be taking another important step – along with modernizing golf’s rules – to provide a pathway into the sport, making golf easier to understand and more approachable and enjoyable for everyone to play.”Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said: “We are working with our partners and national associations to make golf more modern, more accessible and more enjoyable as a sport and the new World Handicap System represents a huge opportunity in this regard.“We want to make it more attractive to golfers to obtain a handicap and strip away some of the complexity and variation which can be off-putting for newcomers. Having a handicap, which is easier to understand and is truly portable around the world, can make golf much more enjoyable and is one of the unique selling points of our sport.”The full details of the WHS will be released in late 2018.To provide feedback on the new World Handicap System or for more information, visit www.usga.org or www.RandA.org. 19 Feb 2018 World Handicap System: new details announced Tags: WHS, World Handicap Systemlast_img read more

Action on the bill at both the top and bottom of LaLiga Santander as…

first_imgAdvertisement 61bpfNBA Finals | Brooklyn VsgyWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre E9c( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) kha9Would you ever consider trying this?😱4reedCan your students do this? 🌚6ivrRoller skating! Powered by Firework Movement at both the top and bottom of the table is expected as Barcelona and Real Madrid return to action this weekend with some historic clashes among the final round of fixtures before LaLiga Santander takes its winter break.Advertisement  Advertisement Barcelona’s first game after Wednesday’s Clasico at the Camp Nou is back at home, against D. Alaves. The Basques famously won on their visit to the Catalan capital in September 2016, but Barça have won all six of their meetings since, five times in LaLiga and once in the 2017 Copa del Rey final. Advertisement  Real Madrid are in action when they welcome Athletic Club to the Santiago Bernabeu in a game often known in Spain as El Viejo Clasico – ‘the ‘Old Clasico.’ Athletic’s draw at the Bernabeu two seasons ago is the only time that Los Blancos haven’t taken the three points from this fixture in the past 14 seasons. The final LaLiga Santander weekend of 2019 starts Friday evening with SD Eibar at home to Granada CF; the Basque side have won all four of the most recent LaLiga Santander meetings between the teams. Upcoming programme begins with RCD Mallorca at home to Sevilla FC. Vicente Moreno’s islanders come into the game boosted by a valuable away point at RC Celta last weekend, while Julen Lopetegui’s Andalusians will want to bounce back after losing at home to Villarreal. That result should mean Villarreal CF’s Yellow Submarine will be buoyant ahead welcoming of a Getafe CF team whose tremendous run of four straight victories has lifted them to fourth in the LaLiga Santander table. Last late game has a Real Valladolid team with two points and zero goals in their last five games hosting a Valencia CF side who have found the net in 16 of 17 LaLiga Santander games so far this term. The Match starts with a real relegation six pointer in the Spanish capital as 19th placed CD Leganes host bottom side RCD Espanyol. Both have showed signs of improvement lately and picked up useful points last weekend but will still see a win at Butarque as crucial. There’s another Basque derby early where CA Osasuna host Real Sociedad; the team from San Sebastian unbeaten on their last three LaLiga visits to their neighbours in Pamplona. Real Betis hosting Atletico de Madrid is further classic LaLiga Santander fixture given the close historical ties between the clubs and their fanbases. It could be another tight affair on Sunday afternoon given that their four most recent clashes have produced just three goals in total. By contrast, Levante UD against RC Celta is almost a guarantee of goals with 22 scored in their last five LaLiga meetings. Levante won 4-1 on their most recent visit to Balaidos last February. Watch LaLiga Santander live this weekend on FACEBOOK WATCH Advertisementlast_img read more

India vs Australia: Michael Vaughan says Lyon will help Australia win series

first_imgFormer England captain Michael Vaughan has predicted Australia will win the ongoing four-Test series against India. The highly competitive series between the two sides is currently level at 1-1 after the first two matches.Michael Vaughan also insisted that off-spinner Nathan Lyon will be the difference between India and Australia, who won their first Test since the ball-tampering scandal in Perth to nullify the early advantage Virat Kohli’s men had gained after winning the series opener in Adelaide.”Final thought as I leave Aussie … Australia will Win the series … Lyon is going to prove to be the difference … (sic),” Vaughan wrote on Twitter while announcing he won’t be part of Fox Cricket’s commentary panel for the last two Tests in Melbourne and Sydney.Final thought as I leave Aussie … Australia will Win the series … Lyon is going to prove to be the difference … #AUSvIND … Anyway back to the cold … See you all down under in early jan @FoxCricketMichael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) December 20, 2018Nathan Lyon, who had topped the bowling charts during Australia’s 2-0 win over India in 2014-15, has given India a lot of headaches in the ongoing series. He picked up eight wickets, including the prized wicket of captain Virat Kohli early during India’s unsuccessful chase of 287 in Perth.Lyon, who has risen to his career-best seventh spot in ICC Test bowler rankings, has already snared 16 wickets from two matches in the ongoing series. Playing as the only spinner in the Australian bowling attack, the seasoned campaigner has complemented the three-man pace attack as the hosts have hunted in packs, successfully.advertisementMeanwhile, former India captain Sourav Ganguly has said Virat Kohli’s men have shown too much respect to Nathan Lyon, who has picked up a five-for in each of the first two Tests.The former opener, who was known for his ability to take spinners out of the attack, added he all but sent a text to Kohli about India’s inability to fend away threats from spinners, especially in overseas conditions.”I had thought of sending a text to Kohli but I haven’t done it yet. I wanted to tell him that you shouldn’t give so many wickets to spinners outside the subcontinent. There is no doubt that Nathan Lyon is a great spinner but so were Shane Warne, Muttiah Muralitharan and Graeme Swann,” Ganguly told India TV.”They have shown him too much respect by defending a lot of deliveries outside the off-stump. Instead, I feel they should attack him more and look to build towards at least a total in excess of 300-350.”Lots of talk going around in media specially Australian .. watch out for india against this australia ..still two tests to go and india can win both.. don’t go too far ahead everyone @bcci— Sourav Ganguly (@SGanguly99) December 19, 2018’India remain favourites to win the series’ On the other hand, former India fast bowler Zaheer Khan said India will be able to win their first-ever Test series in Australia despite the spirited comeback from the hosts in Perth.”India have a very good opportunity to win their first-ever Test series in Australia. Even though Australia have bounced back to level the series at 1-1, India remain favourites to win the series,” Zaheer told ANI.”The bowling unit is showing a lot of consistency in their plans and executions. Not just on this tour but the pace unit has been impressive in the last three overseas tours.”With considerable pressure to not let the series slip away, India will face a confident Australian side in the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from December 26.Also Read | I want to come back better than I was, says Steve Smith in new commercialAlso Read | Sunil Gavaskar’s ultimatum to Virat Kohli if India fail to win Australia Test seriesAlso See:last_img read more
