View comments Phivolcs records 2 ‘discrete weak ash explosions’ at Taal Volcano Phil Mickelson, of the U.S., poses with his Mexico Championship trophy at the Chapultepec Golf Club in Mexico City, Sunday, March 4, 2018. (AP Photo/Eduardo Verdugo)MEXICO CITY — The shot through a gap in the trees only he could see. The two birdies he had to have when time was running out.Phil Mickelson finally looked like the Lefty of old Sunday in the Mexico Championship, especially when a final round of pressure, possibilities and dramatic shots that kept the crowd buzzing finally ended at Chapultepec Golf Club.ADVERTISEMENT The disappointment was tempered only by his start — Thomas was 11 shots back going into the weekend — and by the guy who beat him.“Man, there’s nothing for me to hang my head about,” Thomas said. “To even have a chance to win this golf tournament after where I was through 18, through 36 holes, I’m very proud of myself. Obviously, I would have loved to drum him out there in that playoff, but I’m just happy for him. … He’s playing some great golf.”Mickelson, his confidence higher than the altitude in Mexico City, believes this is just the start.“I don’t think that this is the peak,” he said. “I think I’m going to continue to get better.”This was far more than a duel between Mickelson and Thomas, who is 23 years younger. Tyrrell Hatton was right there, stride for stride, putting four straight 3s on his card with a stretch he capped off with an eagle on the 15th to tie for the lead.But on the final hole, Hatton missed the green to the right, chipped 10 feet by and missed the par putt for a 67 to fall out of a playoff.“I can’t believe that I’m not at least in the playoff,” Hatton said, still seething over a par putt on the 18th that started bouncing right after he hit it.Mickelson won his third World Golf Championships title and, just a month after being on the verge of falling out of the top 50 in the world for the first time in two decades, moves to No. 18 in the world.Shubhankar Sharma, the 21-year-old from India who started with a two-shot lead, didn’t make his first birdie until the 12th hole. He finished with consecutive bogeys for a 74, six shots behind in a three-way tie for ninth. That will leave him on the bubble at No. 66 in the world for making it back to the next World Golf Championship, the Dell Match Play, in three weeks in Texas. Sharma first flies home for the Hero Indian Open next week.“A little bit disappointed,” Sharma said. “I was leading and I think I couldn’t finish it off today. But that’s what the game is about. And what I learned today, especially playing with Phil, I’ll cherish it forever.” Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Hatton tied for third with Rafa Cabrera Bello, who holed a bunker shot for eagle on the opening hole and was among six players who had at least a share of the lead during the final round.Mickelson was the first player who appeared to seize control with a birdie on No. 10 to take the lead, and he was poised to pull away with a reachable par 5 at No. 11 and a drivable par 4 at No. 12.Instead, Lefty made it as entertaining as ever.Going for the green in light rough with the ball below his feet, he hooked it deep into the bushes right of the green, and played his next one when he could barely see the golf ball. His shot hit the gallery and stayed in the trees, and his fourth shot narrowly missed another tree before settling 10 feet away. He made bogey, and just like that, it was a sprint to the finish 7,800 feet above sea level.Mickelson made good on his pledge earlier this year that more victories were in store for him. He has four consecutive top 10s for the first time since 2005.That also was the last time he had won in a playoff.It all seems so long ago — playoffs, trophies, consistent play. Now he’s just more than a month away from the Masters, and feeling invigorated.And feeling like a winner. Mickelson, who closed with a 5-under 66, was at his best over the back nine with as many as six players still in the mix.Suddenly two shots behind when Thomas holed out from 119 yards for eagle on the 18th hole, Mickelson played a high-risk shot through the smallest of gaps in the trees to escape with par on the 14th hole. That’s when he saw the score, and he followed with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 15th and a 20-foot birdie on the 16th.Thomas, who won last week in a playoff at the Honda Classic, capped off a 62-64 weekend with more clutch play, no shot bigger than his sand wedge that bounced behind the flag and spun back into the cup on his final hole for eagle .The playoff — — the sixth in the last eight weeks on the PGA Tour — lasted only one hole on the par-3 17th, where Thomas made bogey for the second time.His gap wedge was too long, his chip too weak. Mickelson’s 18-foot birdie putt rimmed around the edge of the cup, and Thomas missed his par from just inside 10 feet.ADVERTISEMENT UK plans Brexit celebrations but warns businesses may suffer MOST READ He was posing with the trophy.For the first time in 102 tournaments around the world, dating to the summer of 2013 when he won the British Open at Muirfield, the 47-year-old Mickelson showed he still had the stuff to beat players who weren’t even born when he collected the first of his 43 victories on the PGA Tour.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“This is a very meaningful win,” Mickelson said after beating Justin Thomas in a playoff. “I can’t really put it into words given the tough times over the last four years, and the struggle to get here, and knowing that I was able to compete at this level but not doing it.“To finally break through and to have this validation means a lot to me.” It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacsonlast_img read more

House Conforms to Supreme Court Ruling

first_imgThe House of Representatives has begun roll call again, after suspending it and allowing members present at the June 2 Session of the House of Representatives to constitute a quorum for one month, June 2 to July 2, 2016.Yesterday’s roll call was in compliance with the Supreme Court ruling of Associate Justice Jamesetta Wolokollie, which mandated the House’s Plenary to return to the ‘status quo ante’ in conformity with Article 33 of the 1986 Constitution.The Article states: “Simple majority of each House shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business, but a lower number may adjourn from day to day and compel the attendance of absent members. Whenever the House of Representatives and the Senate shall meet in joint session, the presiding officer of the House of Representatives shall preside.”The Court ruling was due to a lawsuit filed by Rep. Edwin M. Snowe, praying the Court to intervene in what he termed as “undemocratic and illegal” decision which violates the House’s Rules and Procedures and the Constitution.The House leadership made the decision to return to the “roll call” owing to a Stay Order on the House Sessions and Budget Hearings on the Revenue Component of the Fiscal Year 2016/2017 Draft National Budget on Tuesday.According to the Writ of Prohibition, the Supreme Court, in its March Term, A.D. 2016, mandated the House of Representatives to return to the status quo, before the motion of June 2, 2016 that suspended roll calls.“You are further commanded to instruct the Respondents (Speaker Tyler and Ministry of Justice) to do their return to this Writ in the office of the Clerk of this Honorable Court on or before the 30th day of June, A.D. 2016; and to read them the original and leave a copy of the Writ of Prohibition with the Respondents each. As to when and how you shall have served this Writ, you will make known by filing your returns officially thereto on the back of the original Writ in the office of the Clerk of this Honorable Court on or before the said 30th Day of June, A.D. 2016,” the court said.It may be recalled that last Tuesday’s session was adjourned following an announcement by the Chairman on the House’s Executive Committee, Grand Kru Representative George Wesseh Blamoh, who served as the presiding officer.“We received two communications (writs) from the Supreme Court and the Speaker has gone there to get clarity, so today there’s no session,” Presiding Officer Blamoh said. This is the second time in two weeks the Supreme Court put a stay order on the House of Representatives.On Friday, June 10, 2016, a stay order was granted by the Supreme Court, and on Monday, June 13, it was lifted and both parties, the petitioner, Rep. Edwin Snowe and the respondent, Speaker J. Alex Tyler were mandated to make amendment, but the petitioner was instructed to seek redress if dissatisfied with the resolution.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

What Caused the LRD/USD Rate Drop?

first_imgFew hours to President George Weah’s State of the Nation Address on Monday, Jan. 29, there appeared to be an sudden, significant drop in the LRD/USD exchange rate.  However the drop did not affect prices of basic commodities, including gasoline and transportation. Until Monday, the exchange rate was L$135 to US$1.But the sudden drop in the rate, according to a Daily Observer survey, was due to the speculation that President would have swiftly intervened to announce measures that will have stabilized the exchange rate.Currently, the LRD to USD exchange rate spans between L$90 and L$110 to US$1, which is, for once, far below the Central Bank of Liberia’s (CBL) published market ‘buying and selling rates.’About two weeks ago, the CBL authorities intervened in the exchange rates, but it cannot be determined if the intervention influenced drop of the Liberian dollar to the US dollar.Forex Bureaus around Monrovia show the exchange rate well above L$130/US$1, just days before Pres. Weah’s State of the Nation AddressCBL Communication Director, Cyrus W. Badio told the Daily Observer via mobile phone yesterday that recently, the bank infused a huge amount of money into the economy to stabilize the rate. He did not, however, state how much was infused into the economy.According to some business people, the drastic reduction in the exchange rate is good under President Weah, but the prices of goods and commodities are still high on the market.Ma. Bendu, who sells in the Red-light market said the rate is low but the prices are still the same, because commercial drivers still buy gasoline for L$465, and charge L$100 from ELWA Junction to Broad Street.Abraham Smith, shoe retailer said “Business is not easy… Three months ago, things were fine but this time no way because of the high exchange rate. Now if you buy your goods at the rate of L$130 or L$131 to U$1 it makes it difficult to buy our goods.”“When we try to complain, they (customers) usually tell us that the U.S rate is too high. My recommendation to the new government is to drop the prices of commodities on the market and reduce the U.S. rate.“Another thing the new government must do is to create more jobs for the young people to help reduce poverty in the country because things are very expensive and the common people cannot afford to provide for themselves,” Smith added.Amos Zoker, Used Tires Retailer said, “We were buying the wheelbarrow tires for LD$450 but the price has increased to LD$650 because of the U.S rate. So, the U.S rate is really embarrassing us. I want the new government under the leadership of George Weah to try hard and reduce the prices of goods, regulate the exchange rate and improve the economy.”A representative of business rights advocacy group, Patriotic Entrepreneurs of Liberia (PATEL), also told the Daily Observer that “the entire business community is right now confused because we don’t know where this news came from on the massive reduction in the foreign currency.”According to him, President Weah promised during the elections that if elected, he will ensure that the prices of major commodities would drop in three months.Based on this, “we thought his state of the nation address would immediately reduce the exchange rate.”He said the country is now in a serious economic crisis and therefore, President Weah should hurry up and take Liberians out of the economic doldrums and the private sector should be given a greater chance in the country’s economic development drive.He highlighted the importance of Liberia’s restoration of its key economic role in the region, especially through increasing exports and encouraging investments.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Real-life terror: Ballybofey mum reveals daughter’s fear as she spots burglar in garden

first_imgA Donegal mother-of-two has told of the panic in her daughter’s voice after she had spotted a man trying to gain access to their home in the early hours of yesterday morning. Ursula Quigley-Moore, who lives in The Beeches area of Ballybofey, told Donegal Daily how her 16-year-old daughter panicked when she saw a ‘hooded man’ lurking in the garden.Quigley-Moore said: “My daughter came home at around 2.30 am as she was at an Irish Dancing party in Harvey’s Point. “She wasn’t in her room five minutes when she came running into my room in a panic saying there was a man in a black hoody lurking in our front garden looking up at the bedroom windows.“I looked out and he was still there standing in the middle of the garden. We knocked on the window to let him know we could see him and he started to walk away.”She explained that neighbours revealed to her the following morning that the man had attempted to secure entry into several properties in the estate before having one final attempt at the Quigley-Moore residence.“After that, we could hear a lot of commotion outside. We looked out again and the guards had arrived into the cul de sac. “They called into our house to make sure everyone was ok,” she added.“Yesterday we got an updated story on events. Our neighbour and her boyfriend got home from a night out just after my daughter got home.“They saw the offender coming from the side of my house and they shouted to him what he was doing. He continued to hide behind the bushes in my garden and my neighbour’s boyfriend came over to confront him and see what he was at.“He then chased my neighbours into their house and starting banging on their door and shouting at them.“At this stage, they rang the guards who arrived at the scene promptly, chased the assailant, caught him and arrested him. “Apparently he had been across the road at my other neighbour’s house who also saw him and knocked out at him and then he proceeded to check my house.”It is understood that a chase ensued when Gardai arrived at the scene at which point the man tried to flee.“At this stage, the guards arrived at the scene promptly, chased the man, caught him and arrested him.“Nobody likes to hear their daughter in a panic at any time of the day but in the early hours of the morning your stomach just lurches. “Her voice was between a cry and pure panic,” the Donegal mother explained.“When she said he was looking up at the windows and just lurking in the garden with a hoody up I knew he was up to no good.“I felt relieved when he was arrested and then angry the next day thinking how dare someone violate our privacy as we sleep.“We try to build a nice environment for our children in a nice estate and try to give them nice things for some low life to come in and take it all away.”Real-life terror: Ballybofey mum reveals daughter’s fear as she spots burglar in garden was last modified: October 2nd, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:BallybofeyburglarfearGardaimumlast_img read more
