Burns leads Safeway after double wake-up call

first_imgNAPA, Calif. – Sam Burns overcame an early double bogey and used steady iron play and strong putting to take the Safeway Open lead Friday. Harry Higgs was right behind, cutting his deficit in half with his last swing. Burns made nine birdies in a 7-under 65 to get to 15 under at at Silverado Resort, with Higgs two strokes back. Higgs closed with an albatross for a 62, the best round of the day in the PGA Tour’s season opener. First-round leader Russell Knox (69), Cameron Percy (68) and D.J. Trahan (65) were 12 under. James Hahn (65) and Doug Ghim (66) were 11 under. Burns began the day a shot off the lead and started on the back nine. He ran into immediate trouble when his tee shot on the 160-yard, par-3 11th went into the water. After a drop, Burns got onto the green in three and two-putted from 14 feet. Burns quickly turned that disappointment into motivation. The 24-year-old from Louisiana birdied the next three holes. After making the turn at 3 under for the round, Burns birdied Nos. 1, 4, 5 and 9. Safeway Open: Full-field scores | Full coverage ”Woke me up, I guess,” Burns said. ”It picked me up, like ‘Hey, let’s go.” Just kind of stuck with it and the golf course opened up for me the rest of the day.” Burns needed it on a day when Higgs ended his round with a remarkable 2 on the 564-yard, par-5 ninth. Higgs hit 331-yard drive, then holed out from 230 yards with a 4-iron. ”What a wonderful way to end the day and also just really weird,” Higgs said. ”Being the last hole, it’s so final. I hope that I can like calm down. My brother and I were joking, I was looking forward to a nap all day long and I might be too jacked up now to actually fall asleep.” Higgs didn’t see the ball roll into the cup and wasn’t even certain what happened. With no fans and minimal spectators, there was no immediate reaction other than a few people who were standing nearby. Golf Central Closing albatross has Higgs contending in Napa BY Ryan Lavner  — September 11, 2020 at 5:10 PM Harry Higgs ended his second round Friday at the Safeway Open with his first career albatross. ”The volunteer off the left just started screaming and then he said, ‘It’s in the hole, it’s in the hole!”’ Higgs said. ”I don’t really remember what I did. I just took my club and threw it on the ground. It was just full panic. I’m sure it looked funny and ridiculous. I mean, what a great way to finish.” Thirteen players had to finish the first round early Friday after Thursday’s play was suspended due to darkness. Conditions continue to improve, paving the way for lower scores across the board. With the forecast for warmer temperatures over the next two days, it’s likely scores will continue to drop. Consider that last year’s winner, Cameron Champ, shot 17 under over the four days. The tournament record is 18 under, shared by three people including two-time Safeway Open winner Brendan Steele. Burns, who has never won on the PGA Tour, isn’t concerned about setting records as much as he is continuing a steady comeback from a right ankle injury in mid-2019 that slowed his progress. ”I think for me I’m just going to go out tomorrow and focus on what I can control,” Burns said. ”For me, that’s on my mind and that’s picking good targets and hitting shots.” Burns has done just that through two rounds. He hit 16 of 18 greens on Friday, is 30 of 36 overall, and has complemented that by draining nearly 200 feet of putts. ”I’ve made zero adjustments other than just trying to stick with the practice routine that we have in place,” Burns said. ”A lot of what we do is just making sure the ball’s starting online, and we do stuff around the hole (to) get the feel of visualizing the putts breaking. Just trying to get the feel of these greens and they’re rolling really nice.” Steele (70) was 9 under, six shots off the pace. Phil Mickelson (67) was 6 under in his tune-up for next week’s U.S. Open at Winged Foot.last_img read more

Has anyone seen Vaughn Rivers? And City League awards, coming soon! (Sept. 13, 2017)

first_imgBILL NEAL:10—Unless you’re truly living under that rock you’ve heard so much about or you live in Cleveland where nothing really matters, your Pittsburgh Steelers are kicking off their “Stairway to Seven” Super Bowl run. No. 1, yes, I’m at my spot; No. 2, none of your business where my spot is! No. 3, apparently this is not your grandfather’s Cleveland Browns team. They got game; No. 4, that being said, I had the Black and Gold winning by two touchdowns…but those Brownies surprised me a little bit! Only a three-point win for our Steelers? C’mon, man!:09—In case you want to know, “The Sgt. Mike Booker Boycott Brigade” is in full effect. I spoke with BBB and at last word he and the troops are holding the fort. (Reports of a tiny old school 1970’s transistor AM/FM Radio/TV in his hip pocket are greatly exaggerated.) (But, ya’ll do remember Booker is a master technician…I’m just sayin’!):08—Hey Pittsburgh, last call for Vaughn Rivers. The City League legend is to be inducted into this year’s 4th Annual Pittsburgh City League All-Sports High School Hall of Fame. Problem is, we can’t find him. Anybody knowing the whereabouts of Vaughn Rivers please ask him to call me at 412-628-4856. Apparently, Brother Rivers is still so fast even a phone call can’t catch him.:07—Speaking of the City League Hall of Fame, how about these names going in this year …Tonja Stevens, Mike Wilson, Kevin Barlow, Jessie Murphy, Craig Walls, Latrica and Nathan Hall, Buddy and Mon-T Robinson, just to name a few. C’mon man, this is greatness extreme!!!:06—Oh, for the few of you that just have to have something to complain about with my name attached to it, please, please, please understand that we’re talking about 200 years of legendary sports history here, people. This can’t be done overnight…and in the night we do it, it can’t be done quickly. So please stop that, “Bill Neal hurry up,” “Bill Neal it’s too long” stuff, and correct me if I’m wrong, we are still in Pittsburgh last time I checked. Where ya’ll got to go? Nowhere! I mean really, some of you act like you can’t stay up past 10 p.m. and you gotta get up the next day cause Donald Trump’s coming to your crib. Truth is, we’re honoring “50” deserving people. Give the sitter a few extra bucks and put the dog out back. It’s gonna be a long nite gram-ma!! Now smile ‘cause deep down you know you love me. Yes you do…Yes you do…Alright, that’s better.:05—See, here’s the difference between me and Kevin Cameron. I can admit when I’m wrong. I had Kev and Big Ed out at Ace’s in Wilkinsburg against the wall for a minute with a Pitt upset over Penn State. Okay, I took the underdog and we lost, 33-14, but not as bad as everybody thought. But I was wrong…Kev and Big Ed, will you guys ever, ever, ever ever admit to being wrong?:04—Hold up…wait a minute…somebody turn on the lights…ya’ll gonna make me lose my mind up in here! You mean to tell me a Black woman not named Williams has won the U.S. Open? Sloane Stephens, you are the shining star. And how do you plan on spending that new $3 million? Oops, my bad, but you were thinking it, too.:03—Speaking of all the money. Your boy “Kirk,” the owner of the Black Knight, quite possibly the baddest corvette in Pittsburgh, is putting his wheels where his mouth is. If you think your vette is badder, then come show it. Hey, hey, there’s gonna be a showdown Saturday, Sept. 23.

Mickey Mouse as an Avocado Pit

first_imgJournal, exterior Earrings Salt and pepper shakers, $14.49 Cap with twin avocados, for those who want to look like a vegan crocodile Share This!Holy guacamole, we’ve found the intersection of Mickey Mouse and avocados.My travels frequently take me past the flagship Disney Store in Times Square, New York City. I usually pop in for a few minutes to see the latest film tie-in merchandise or variations on Minnie Mouse dressed as the Statue of Liberty. During my most recent visit, I came across something new: avocado-themed Mickey merch.I totally understand the fixation with Disney food. I’m all for cupcake tees and Dole Whip ear hats, but this struck me as a bit, well, odd. Who is the market for this? Does the merch design team think that Millennials will buy literally anything if there’s an insinuation of impending avocado toast? Is this meant to appease parents who don’t allow their children sugar? Small “dip bowl,” $16.95. Not food safe or microwave safe or dishwasher safe. So …? Water bottle, $14.95 Jewelry dish (I think), $9.95 Journal, interiorIf you want these items and don’t have a Disney Store near you, you can also find them on shopDisney.com. But first, can you explain them to me? Especially the avocado dip bowl that you can’t put dip in?last_img read more

How You Can Allow Other People to Add Captions to Your YouTube Videos

first_imgIn July 2018, I wrote about how my one tweet led to Troy Hunt’s YouTube HTTPS series getting translated into 16+ languages. I kicked off getting the series captioned by asking Hunt to enable YouTube community contributions. Once he turned contributions on, I added English captions to the first two videos. In less than a week, Hunt’s community stepped up and added translations for 16 languages for the four videos. I checked his YouTube channel today; his series has now been captioned in 20 languages!Before I told Hunt about them, he wasn’t aware YouTube had a community contributions feature. Have to say I’m not surprised, it’s not unusual for YouTube video creators to not know. What are Community Contributions?Community contributions are a crowdsourcing feature on YouTube, which allows your community to add title, description, subtitles, and closed captions to your videos. I’ve discovered over the years of captioning YouTube videos that YouTube doesn’t promote community contributions. Every week, a YouTube video creator thanks me for telling them about community contributions.Benefits of Community ContributionsOne of the main benefits of community contributions: your videos can be captioned in multiple languages. Why limit your content to people who only speak your language and can hear? Once your videos are captioned, search engines can index your content. (Search engines can’t listen or watch videos.)Which ultimately means, you expand the audience for your content. Many YouTube creators don’t have the money or sponsorship to afford adding captions themselves or having a third-party vendor add captions. Community contributions fill that need; your community submits the captions at no cost to you. There are a slew of other benefits to adding captions to your videos.How to Enable and Manage Community ContributionsNow that I’ve explained the benefits of community contributions, here are the steps to enable and manage them.Enable Community Contributions for a Specific YouTube VideoLog into your Google accountVisit YouTube StudioIn the Channel menu, select VideosSelect the video thumbnail or title for the specific videoIn the Channel menu, select Transcriptions In Community Contributions and select On for this video (if you haven’t already set the language for the video, you’ll want to do that as well)Enable Community Contributions for Your YouTube ChannelLog into your Google accountVisit YouTube StudioIn the Channel menu, select TranscriptionsSelect Community in the main navigationSelect Turn onWhat You Need to KnowCommunity contributions are an excellent option for adding title, description, subtitles, and closed captions to your videos. But there are few things you want to be aware of:The feature is not enabled by default, you need to enable it.As the owner of the video, you need to enable it for each of your videos. Or set it as the default for all the videos on your YouTube channel.You can review, edit, flag, or reject the community contributions. You can even ask the community to improve the contributions.My recommendation: always review the contributions before accepting and publishing them. You may find a few changes you’ll want to make before publishing. Wrapping UpCommunity contributions help you reach a wider audience through captions and translations, without the cost of third-party captioning services.As video author, you can enable community contributions by specific video or for your entire YouTube video channel.You make the final decision whether to add the community contributions, or not. Spread the word, tell other YouTube video authors about community contributions!

NetFlix InstantWatcher: A Netflix Mashup for Impatient People

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts Netflix subscribers, here’s a mashup just for you: the new Netflix InstantWatcher, an application built using the Netflix API, helps you find the titles marked “Watch Instantly” without having to browse or search through Netflix’s vast online catalog. Instead, all the titles that are available for instant streaming are categorized for easy browsing right on the InstantWatcher web site. InstantWatcher: Streaming Titles OnlyOne of Netflix’s great features is the ability to watch some of the titles it offers instantly – either on your computer, via your Xbox, or by using another external device, like the Roku player. Unfortunately, Netflix’s entire catalog isn’t available for streaming – only select titles marked “Watch Instantly.” For subscribers who make heavy use of this feature, finding movies and TV shows to stream means tiresome browsing through the Netflix web site. But now there’s a better way.The InstantWatcher web site is Netflix mashup that filters for the “Watch Instantly” titles using the relatively new Netflix API which launched in September of last year. On the main page, the titles are grouped into genres like “Drama,” “Sci-Fi,” “Romance,” “Comedy,” etc. and within each section they are then further categorized for easy browsing. Other Ways to BrowseUsing the links at the top, you can browse by other methods, too. Options here include browsing “New,” “Expiring,” “Random,” “People,” “Best,” and “Worst” titles. Who would want to find the worst movies? Well, we suppose it is funny to see how Netflix rounded out their 15,000+ titles in the “Instant Watch” catalog with a huge collection of D-list (and quite frankly, really terrible) films.Of course, you don’t have to just browse through the titles. If you have a particular movie or TV show in mind, you can just do a search for it using the box provided at the top of the screen. Interacting with Your QueueWhen you find a movie or TV show you like, you can click the “Play” button to add it to your Instant Queue. That feature makes InstantWatcher extremely useful, although we would like to see the ability to delete items from the queue as well. Perhaps in a later version they will add that functionality. Despite that minor drawback, the Netflix InstantWatcher web site is still a great example of the amazing things which can be built when a company offers up an API for use by third-party developers. ProgrammableWeb dubbed it one of their “best new mashups” and we definitely agree. The InstantWatcher is a must for Netflix subscribers everywhere that streaming is offered. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market sarah perezcenter_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#Features#Mashups#NYT#Product Reviews#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more
