Lyle 7 back after opening 67-69 at Midwest Classic

first_imgOVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Jarrod Lyle followed his opening 4-under 67 with a 69 in windy conditions Friday in the Tour’s Midwest Classic, leaving the Australian seven strokes behind leader Zack Sucher in his first U.S. event since his second bout with leukemia. The 32-year-old Lyle had four birdies and two bogeys in the second round to reach 6-under 136 at the Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate. Sucher was 13 under after a 63. ”I’m proud and pleased at the way I’m playing,” Lyle said. I’ve been doing a lot of work at home in Australia and here in Orlando to get myself ready for now. It shows that the work I’m doing is the right work.” Lyle leads the field in greens in regulation, hitting 32 of 36. ”I couldn’t ask for anything better,” Lyle said. ”I would have been happy to make the cut on the number, but now I’m in a position where I could make a charge hopefully. Who knows what’s going to happen on the weekend. It’s just a lot of unknowns – how the body holds up, how the fatigue progresses. Now it’s just a bit of a guessing game, but everything is heading in the right direction.” Traveling with wife Briony and 2-year-old daughter Lusi, Lyle also is set to play Tour events Aug. 7-10 in Springfield, Missouri, and Aug. 14-17 in Knoxville, Tennessee. When Lyle returns to the PGA Tour for the start of the season in October, he will have 20 events to earn $283,825 and reach the equivalent of No. 125 on the money list in 2012, the year he suffered a recurrence. Lyle returned to play in November in the Australian Masters and played in the Victorian Open near his hometown in February. Jason Gore was second at 11 under after a 63, and former Kansas State player Aaron Watkins was third at 10 under after a 65.last_img read more

Fourth Bear Caught After Deadly Montana Campground Attack

first_imgCOOKE CITY – The last grizzly bear believed involved in the fatal mauling of a Michigan man at a campground near Yellowstone National Park has been captured, and Montana wildlife officials are awaiting DNA tests to confirm their suspicions.A sow and two of her three cubs had been trapped by Thursday while the final year-old cub was found in a culvert trap early Friday. The bears, still held in the culvert traps, left the Soda Butte campground in a three-truck convoy Friday morning, bound for the state wildlife lab in Bozeman.Fibers from a tent or sleeping bag were in the captured bears’ droppings, and a tooth fragment found in a tent appears to match a chipped tooth on the 300- to 400-pound sow. But officials say they will decide the bears’ fate only after seeing the results of DNA tests that are expected Friday.“Everything points to it being the offending bear, but we are not going to do anything until we have DNA samples,” said Ron Aasheim, a spokesman for Fish, Wildlife and Parks.Evidence indicates all three cubs were present for and likely participated in what Warden Capt. Sam Sheppard called a sustained attack on Kevin Kammer of Grand Rapids, Mich. He was pulled out his tent and dragged 25 feet and the bears fed on his body.The two other victims, Deb Freele of London, Ontario, and Ronald Singer, of Alamosa, Colo., were hospitalized in Cody, Wyo. Singer, 21, was treated and released, and Freele was scheduled to have surgery Friday for bite wounds and a broken bone in her arm, said West Park Hospital spokesman Joel Hunt.Cooke City resident Cliff Browne, 70, said visitors and residents of the Yellowstone gateway community would be relieved to hear the news of the final capture.Living in proximity to grizzlies is part of life and he said he’s not particularly scared of bears, but this one was different, he said.“I hate to see them have to put it down, and I’m not one of those bleeding-heart environmental protectionists, but I don’t see any choice,” Browne said Friday morning.Messages left Thursday for Kammer’s mother-in-law and brother-in-law in Michigan were not returned Thursday.Singer and his mother, Luron Singer, did not immediately return e-mail messages from the AP. But Luron Singer told The Denver Post that her son, a former high school wrestler, had been camping with his girlfriend.When he felt the bear biting his leg, he started punching the animal, she said. His girlfriend screamed, and the bear ran away.“He is doing fine,” Luron Singer told the Post. “He went fishing today.”Freele said she couldn’t understand why the bear attacked her, because she posed no threat.“If it was something that I had done — if I had walked into a female with cubs, and startled her, and she attacked me — I can understand that,” she said. “She was hunting us, with the intention of killing us and eating us.”All the victims did the right thing, and there was no telling why the bear picked out those three tents, Sheppard said.“She basically targeted the three people and went after them,” he said.In 2008 at the same campground, a grizzly bear bit and injured a man sleeping in a tent. A young adult female grizzly was captured in a trap four days later and taken to a bear research center in Washington state.Browne said he didn’t expect to change his routines because of the attacks.“You can’t live in fear,” he said. “It’s not going to change my going out hiking.”About 600 grizzly bears and hundreds of less-aggressive black bears live in the Yellowstone area. The grizzlies are listed as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. Email Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup.

Supreme Court asks for e-filing advice

first_img January 15, 2012 Regular News The Florida Supreme Court has asked for more information before acting on a rules case that could set a schedule for mandatory electronic filing in Florida courts. Part of that request, issued last month, was for a reduction in the proposed number of exceptions from electronic filing in criminal cases.The court also asked for advice on how mandatory electronic filing would affect mandatory electronic service of case documents and other paperwork between parties, which was the subject of a different rules case.The court, on that topic, asked, “whether the deadlines set out in the proposed phase-in schedule for mandatory electronic filing also should apply in implementing mandatory electronic service.”The electronic service rule was filed in 2010 and was a precursor to the mandatory e-filing rule, with the expectation e-service would eventually be incorporated into the e-filing system.The court directed the Rules of Judicial Administration Committee and the Florida Court Technology Commission to create a workgroup to address that and two other questions related to the criminal rules. The workgroup was directed to submit its findings by February 6.In the original e-filing petition, the Rules of Criminal Procedure Committee proposed several exceptions from electronic filing. Both the FCTC and the Florida Court E-filing Authority, which oversees the Internet portal which is the access to the e-filing system, opposed exempting that many documents.The criminal rules committee proposed that paper filing be maintained for “charging documents, indictments, informations, petitions, affidavits, plea agreements, documents filed under seal, ex parte documents, and any documents which are required to be sworn or notarized. Original charging documents must be kept by the clerk in accordance with the Florida Rules of Judicial Administration. All other original documents filed in paper format must be scanned by the clerk and provided to the prosecuting authority to determine whether or not the original is kept.”The court’s request for more information indicates the justices may well be siding with the FCTC.“The Court has determined that the list of proposed exemptions from electronic filing in criminal cases is too broad,” the court’s order said. “The workgroup should develop a revised proposal narrowing that list. In light of the fact that any document required by a Florida Statute to be filed in paper format will be exempted under proposed Rule of Judicial Administration 2.525(d), [the e-filing proposed rule] the workgroup also should address whether specific exemptions in criminal cases are, in fact, necessary.”The court also directed the workgroup to determine whether nonparties to criminal cases who have to file information, such as the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Florida Department of Corrections, should be required to electronically file that information.The order came in case no. SC11-399. The proposed e-service rule is in case no. SC10-2101. Supreme Court asks for e-filing advicecenter_img Supreme Court asks for e-filing advicelast_img read more

New open door for Zimbabweans

first_imgOrdinary Zimbabweans have been hardest hit by the deteriorating situation in their country – many now seek better fortunes in neighbouring countries. (Image: Irin News)Samson MulugetaEarlier this month South Africa announced that it would allow neighbouring Zimbabweans free, unfettered access to its border and allow Zimbabweans to stay in the county without a visa requirement for three months.Previously, South Africa deported 10 000 illegal Zimbabweans a day, severely straining its immigration services and opening the door for corruption, from the South African Embassy in Harare to immigration ports of entry and Home Affairs offices across South Africa.The South African move has been seen by analysts as an acknowledgement of the situations which many Zimbabweans find themselves in. With no end in sight to the economic and political crisis in Zimbabwe, many people will continue to cross the border to seek relief. An estimated 2 to 3-million Zimbabweans have already made South Africa their home.  Once one of Africa’s most prosperous nations with a superb educational system, Zimbabwe has spiraled into economic ruin since 2000 when President Robert Mugabe embarked on a land redistribution campaign that ground the economy to a halt. Currently, 70% of Zimbabweans rely on food aid, according to the International Monetary Fund, and battle with skyrocketing inflation and unemployment.New visa policyThe full impact of the new visa policy would not be known for months, but there has been an influx of newcomers at border crossings such as Beitbridge in Limpopo province. There have been reports of Beitbridge crossings surging from 3 000 to 7 000 daily.A Gauteng High Court ruled on 19 May 2009, that an immigrants’ centre near Musina, close to the Zimbabwe border, should be shut down due to overcrowding and unsanitary conditions. The centre was used to accommodate undocumented foreigners, most of them Zimbabweans.Up until the policy change, up to 8 000 Zimbabweans applied for asylum status in South Africa. Now, presumably, those people would no longer have to ask for asylum and would be free to cross the border whether to shop for scarce goods or to seek temporary employment.In South Africa, where the official unemployment figure stands at 34%, the issue of African immigrants fighting for resources is an explosive issue. Resentment against African immigrants and xenophobia erupted into violence last year, leading to the death of at least 62 people.However, the country’s major labour union, the Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu), has been muted in its response to the new policy. Patrick Craven, a Cosatu spokesperson, said the union was pleased by the fact that newly legitimatised Zimbabweans would not be exploited by employers who pay them less than South Africans.“Cosatu has not taken a position on this action,” said Craven. “But in principle we are not opposed to granting legal status to Zimbabwean workers here because it stops their exploitation by unscrupulous employers and protects South African workers as well.”Southern African co-operationIn issuing the new visa policy, outgoing Home Affairs Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula said the move is an effort by South Africa to fight human trafficking, human smuggling and other cross-border crimes.South Africa has similar visa arrangements with neighbouring nations of the South African Development Community (SADC), which includes Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Mozambique, Lesotho and Swaziland as well as non-SADC member Mauritius.In future, the Zimbabwean departure permit, or border pass, will be accepted as a legitimate travel document, according to Mapisa-Nqakula. She added that the visa move was an effort to help rebuild the Zimbabwean economy.However, the Democratic Alliance (DA), the official opposition party, said that it was concerned about the new policy.“While the DA is not opposed in principle to the 90-day visa-waiver for Zimbabweans, we believe this policy decision has been taken without proper plans to ensure its smooth implementation,” the DA said in a statement.“Reports emerging from the Beitbridge immigration office show that it is struggling to cope with the influx of Zimbabweans seeking to enter the country. There are reportedly only nine immigration officials to process the documents of thousands of Zimbabweans.”Lawyers for Human Rights, an advocacy group in Johannesburg, welcomed the new policy, noting that Zimbabweans faced unnecessary and extreme hardship in traveling to South Africa.“This usually entailed dangerous and difficult travel via the porous border where migrants were at the mercy of smugglers, wild animals and environmental hazards,” the group said in a statement.Do you have queries or comments about this article?

Australians ready to pitch at Tent City

first_img30 April 2010 In 2006, Australian soccer fan Steven Barnes camped in Munich for the Fifa World Cup, and in 2010 he will be one of over a thousand Australian soccer lovers who will call Durban’s Sahara Stadium home. Barnes, together with two friends, who will be staying in Durban for Africa’s first ever World Cup, said he was looking forward to the soccer frenzy that will grip South Africa in June. Australia will take on Germany at the Moses Mabhida stadium on 13 June, a clash that Barnes says he is looking forward to. And their fans have already marked their territory in Durban, famous for its warm weather throughout the year. Australian tour group Fanatics, responsible for the organisation of the tour, will be based at the Sahara Stadium, Kingsmead, where a camping village will be set up. The camp will open on 8 June and close on 30 June, and is close enough for a leisurely stroll to the new soccer venue. Transport options have also been included in the travel package, which includes match tickets. Getting to know the country Barnes said he chose the camping experience due to his phenomenal experience in Germany. “Munich was just brilliant. It was such a great atmosphere. There were just so many people around and it was fun,” he said. The Australian, who now lives in London, said he has only been to South Africa on a very short visit, but enjoyed it and is looking forward to coming back in June. Barnes has several friends in the country and, although he is keen to see them, he is equally enthusiastic about what Durban and the rest of South Africa has to offer. “I will be there for the football. But I am also looking forward to the game parks, Zulu battlefield tours and getting to know the country’s history and culture,” Barnes said. ‘Every eventuality catered for’ Thousands of Australian supporters will camp in tents, equipped with beds and eco-friendly lamps, and will use the stadium’s existing toilet facilities. Mobile units will be installed in the stadium for showering. Travel company Edusport will set up the infrastructure and manage the operations at the stadium, using expert companies to set up the camp sites and tents. Fanatics said all tents with their contents will be donated to local businesses after the tournament, which will aid the development of local tourism in KwaZulu-Natal. “Sahara Stadium Kingsmead is excited to be associated with this venture,” said stadium manager Brett Proctor. “The Fifa World cup in our country has provided diverse opportunity for many South Africans, and we at KwaZulu-Natal cricket are delighted to be hosting nearly 1 000 Australian soccer fans in this novel facility. “Logistically, every eventuality has been catered for, from ablutions, catering, entertainment, transport, security and garnering the necessary support from local authorities to give the stadium a clean bill when it comes to safety factors,” Proctor said. “Also, the support and approval from the Australian high commission has been appreciated.” Warren Livingstone, Fanatics tour organiser, confirmed that 1 200 Australians have already booked and “all the logistics have indeed been sorted out.” ‘Looking forward to the parties’ “With just under 56 days to go, the anticipation at the moment is massive. We are looking forward to the parties and mixing with the Durbanites,” Livingstone said from Australia. Livingstone added that the detailed planning was made easier by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Local Government. “The support we received was great. Working with the KwaZulu-Natal government and the council was just great. We are very happy with everything”. Only those registered with Fanatics will be allowed onto the stadium. Other security features include patrolled perimeters on a 24-hour basis and security sweeps with sniffer dogs daily. There will be controlled access for cleaning and catering staff, and a safe deposit area for passports, laptops and other valuables will be provided. Subtle security in unmarked vehicles and plain clothes will be on guard, and the premises will be fenced off. “There is much available to these fans by way of food courts, concerts and big screen marquees, so that a party atmosphere will prevail for the duration of their visit. Probably many sleepless nights await us, but it should be a hugely gratifying three weeks,” Proctor said. According to Fanatics, Australians fans will be entertained by international music acts such as Powderfinger, Fatboy Slim and Electric Mary on the non-match days. Barnes, impressed with the Moses Mabhida Stadium, will be there to watch Australia lock horns with Germany. And, although having been in the United Kingdom for nine years, he joked that he would support any team against England. “I read a feature article about the Moses Mabhida Stadium while on a flight to Australia, and it looks amazing. The cable car and bungee jumping makes it all very exciting. I will be here cheering on my team and any team that plays against England,” Barnes said. Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

AMT Device Active Directory Objects and the Intel SCS

first_imgThis past week I was experimenting with the Active Directory object that gets created by the SCS when a system is configured with Kerberos integration. I found some things you should be careful with and wanted to share.First let’s take a look at how we set up the Active Directory to get it ready for provisioning with the SCS:In order to use Kerberos to authenticate with your AMT device out of band, you need to first set up a new Organizational Unit within your Active Directory: Now because our SCS Service will be creating the AMT Device Objects, we need to grant the SCS Service Account Create/Delete permission on the container: You will see multiple objects returned, the top one is the “AMT Device Object” (machine name + $iME)And the bottom one is the acutal OS Machine Object (machine name + $)To avoid confusion, in a future release of the SCS, the AD object that gets created by the SCS will be created as a “Computer Object”. In my case im just using my AMTAdministrator account to keep things simple. Once I have the Create / Delete options selected, I am finished with the new OU.The next thing I need to do is add the Active Directory OU Information to my SCS Profile: Sure enough, there is our object.Now let’s take a closer look at that object: But look closer and you will see that the object returned was really the AMT Device Object.Now if you are not careful when trying to add computers to a security group, and assume that this object was the computer object, you could run into issues.What you want to do is make sure you include “Computers” when searching for objects:center_img After we set up the Profile in the SCS, we can go ahead and configure the AMT Client using the ACUConfig tool.Once configured, we should be able to see the Active Directory object of the AMT Device in the OU we created: Notice that it is a “User” object. Because it is a user object, it will show up by default when you go to add an object to a group or when you are trying to grant users/objects access to a folder or access list.For example if I had a security group in Active Directory named “SecurityGroup” and I wanted to add this client (e6420) to it, I would search for the name of the system (e6420): I hit “Check Names” and it looks as though the search returned the computer account: Now when you search:last_img read more
