first_imgA six-time winner at the Asian Tour, Jeev had to battle A six-time winner at the Asian Tour, Jeev had to battle through a series of injuries in the last few years. “When you hit rock bottom, the only way is up. Last three years have not been good for me. But I never stop believing myself. Last week most things fell into place and I got a lot of confidence. I hope more often things fall into place this week,” he said. “I think the main thing is the trust. I have been hitting the ball well in driving range for the last five weeks but results were not coming because I was not trusting myself under pressure during match situation. “Last week I hit the ball well and the last three days, my putting has also improved. So my short game was sharp and I felt really good,” he added. Talking about the course at DGC, Jeev said: “I have played Indiam Open at least 20 times but every time I play at DGC, it is different. It is a course where you need a lot of mental strength and distance control. It requires patience, you cant get angry.” Asked about his schedule, Jeev said: “After this week, I am taking four weeks off and then I will be in Japan for a week and then there is Volvo China Open. I will also play Mauritius and then May onwards I will be based in Europe. I have 33 events this year, including Europe and Asia. I hope to finish the year on a good note.” Jeev also recently changed his caddie Janet Squire, who has been associated with the Indian for eight years. “I changed my caddie because I didnt know my schedule, which tournaments I will play. We had a eight year relation and I thought it would be fair for her to move on.” Talking about his series of injuries which affected his game in the last few years, he said: “Injury is the toughest thing that can happen to any sports person. Physically it bothers you but mentally it sets you back because there are shots which you suddenly cant play now. “What kept me going is that I believed I can win and play at the top level and so I kept working harder. I always believed age is a number and you get a lot of experience and learn to be patient with age.” PTI ATK SSC SSCadvertisementlast_img read more

Deploring Myanmar verdict Ban urges immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi

“The Secretary-General is deeply disappointed by the verdict in respect of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi,” his spokesperson said in a statement. “The Secretary-General strongly deplores this decision.” Ms. Suu Kyi, who leads the National League for Democracy (NLD), was reportedly convicted of violating state security laws after an uninvited United States citizen gained access to her home. She has already spent over 12 years under house arrest. Mr. Ban urged the Government to “immediately and unconditionally” release Ms. Suu Kyi and to engage with her without delay as an essential partner in the process of national dialogue and reconciliation. “Unless she and all other political prisoners in Myanmar are released and allowed to participate in free and fair elections, the credibility of the political process will remain in doubt,” today’s statement added. The Government had refused Mr. Ban’s request to meet with Ms. Suu Kyi when he visited the South-East Asian nation in July, losing what the UN chief called a “unique opportunity” to show its commitment to a new era of political openness. He added that allowing the visit “would have been an important symbol of the Government’s willingness to embark on the kind of meaningful engagement that will be essential if the elections in 2010 are to be seen as credible.” The sentence was also condemned by four independent UN human rights experts. “This was a baseless trial convened by the Government of Myanmar to exclude Aung San Suu Kyi from the 2010 elections,” they stated in a joint news release in Geneva, in which they reiterated their call for her immediate and unconditional release. “The court was not independent, judicial guarantees were disregarded, and charges under the State Protection Act were unsubstantive. As we have stated time and again, this trial should never have occurred in the first place.” They also cited the fact that a lawyer from the defence team had his license revoked and that Ms. Suu Kyi was allowed to consult with defence lawyers only sporadically. Also, only two of the five witnesses called by the defence were permitted to testify. The experts, who are unpaid, work in an independent capacity and report to the UN Human Rights Council, are: Vice Chairperson-Rapporteur of the Working Group on arbitrary detention El Hadji Malick Sow; Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression Frank La Rue Lewy; Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders Margaret Sekaggya; and Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar Tomas Ojea Quintana. Security Council members discussed the situation during consultations this afternoon. Ambassador John Sawers of the United Kingdom, which holds the rotating Council presidency this month, said consultations were likely to resume tomorrow. 11 August 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today deplored the decision by a Myanmar court to sentence pro-democracy leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to an additional 18 months of house arrest, and urged that she be released immediately. read more

That dank Couche Alimentation CoucheTard keen on selling cannabis in convenience stores

MONTREAL — If Quebec’s biggest chain of convenience stores has its way, customers will eventually be able to buy cannabis along with their chips, beer and cigarettes.Alimentation Couche-Tard has hired a lobbyist to work on ensuring it is involved in the cannabis-distribution system Quebec will eventually set up.The province’s official registry of lobbyists shows Marie-Eve Bedard has been authorized to work on behalf of Couche-Tard (TSX:ATD.B) and can continue doing so until next May.Bedard, a former chief of staff to ex-Quebec health minister Yves Bolduc, has disclosed she will earn less than $10,000 for her work.Couche-Tard operates more than 2,000 stores in Canada but it is not clear whether it wants to sell cannabis outside of Quebec.Our feautre series on the future of legal pot in CanadaPot could be bigger than boozeA spokeswoman for the chain did not want to be interviewed Tuesday but said in an email the company would be an “ideal partner in implementing a responsible sales model for citizens.”“Alimentation Couche-Tard has a long history of selling tobacco and alcohol, products that minors are prohibited from buying and that raise public-health issues,” said Marie-Noelle Cano.In April, the federal government introduced legislation proposing that Canadians 18 and older be allowed to buy and cultivate small amounts of marijuana for personal use as of next summer.The bill has not yet become law.The government says it will help keep the drug out of the hands of young people while denying profits to criminal organizations.The Quebec government has announced the province will begin a series of consultations this month as it prepares to introduce its own cannabis-related legislation this fall.The Quebec government has announced the province will begin a series of consultations this month as it prepares to introduce its own cannabis-related legislation this fallPublic Health Minister Lucie Charlebois said earlier this month everything will be on the table, adding the province is not starting with any preconceived ideas.But Charlebois indicated she shares Finance Minister Carlos Leitao’s view marijuana should not be distributed at Quebec Liquor Corp. outlets. read more

Coming soon to a jailbroken iPad near you sidebyside app multitasking

first_imgAn aspiring iOS jailbreak enthusiast named Aaron Dot has hacked up a proof of concept that allows his iPad to run two iPhone-sized apps at the same time, on the same screen. Ridiculous you say? Probably, but there could definitely be more use to this than just playing two different games of Angry Birds side-by-side.The dev notes at his blog that he actually managed to get three apps running, but lost stability and crashed the whole thing when he tried for a fourth. There’s also an issue with getting audio and the accelerometer to work, but he hopes that fellow jailbreakers will be able to help iron those out in the coming weeks.AdChoices广告Running two apps on the same screen could be pretty awesome if you think about it — you could go through email while browsing the web, or chat while watching Hulu. You could even be productive and unproductive at the same time by pairing work stuff with a your favorite iPhone game. Sending work emails while sitting at Starbucks is one thing, but doing it while playing Final Fantasy at the same time? That’s just golden.We really want to see this hack in action, and we may get to in a couple of weeks. Aaron is attending the New York Jailbreak Meetup and has promised to let a few people play around with the dual-app iPad. Surely some of them will have their phones ready to capture some video and stick it up on YouTube.Read more at Aaron Dot MS, via MacStorieslast_img read more
