England Golf pledges support to The R&A’s Women’s Charter

first_img Tags: Women in Golf Charter England Golf has become one of the first signatories to The R&A’s new Women in Golf Charter, pledging to get more women and girls playing, working and volunteering in golf.The Charter was launched today and aims to inspire an industry-wide commitment to a more inclusive culture, enabling women and girls to flourish and reach their potential at all levels of the sport.England Golf Chief Executive Nick Pink, who was a guest speaker at the launch, commented: “We are delighted to pledge our support to The R&A’s Charter. Growing the women and girls’ game is central to our strategy and we want to bring about real change in golf, with greater gender diversity at every level of the sport.“It’s clear there is a huge appetite for golf among women and girls. It is up to us to welcome them into the game and show it truly is a sport for all.”England Golf’s commitment is highlighted within its own organisation where 51% of the staff, 30% of the Board and 25% of the senior management team are female.The over-arching theme of its strategy, Growing the Game of Golf in England, is to get more women and girls into golf.Successful initiatives include Girls Golf Rocks which is running in 21 counties and has attracted 1600 girls to try the sport so far this season – with some results still to come in. That’s up by 84% on last year.The Get into Golf campaign attracted 40% female participation last year and has just been relaunched with a bold, modern look designed to appeal to a younger female audience.Women who have taken Get into Golf courses are able to enjoy a growing number of playing days to increase their confidence on the course. Last year, Women on Par attracted over 300 women in three counties. This year, it’s running in eight counties and involving 50 golf clubs, which are all hosting events.At elite level, England has won the European team championship for the past two years. So far this season there have been individual wins for Bel Wardle at the Portuguese amateur and Lily May Humphreys at the Scottish stroke play while five players have been selected to represent GB&I in the forthcoming Curtis Cup at Quaker Ridge, New York.The Women in Golf Charter specifically aims to:• Strengthen the focus on gender balance and provide a united position for the golf industry• Commit national federations and organisations to support measures targeted at increasing participation of women, girls and families in golf• Call on signatories to take positive action to support the recruitment, retention and progression of women working at all levels of the sport• Set individual targets for national federations for participation and membership and annual reporting of progress• Develop an inclusive environment for women and girls within golfAt the launch at The View from The Shard in London, Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said: “We are asking the golf industry to recognise the real importance of increasing the number of women and girls playing golf and empowering more women to enjoy successful careers at all levels of the sport.“The Charter is a strong statement of intent from the golf industry that it has to change and a commitment on behalf of all of us to take measures designed to achieve positive change for women, girls and families. This is crucial to growing participation in the sport in the years ahead.”Tracey Crouch MP, Minister for Sport and Civil Society, added: “We are committed to creating an environment where women and girls can succeed at every level of sport.“Interest in women’s sports is at an all-time high, with increased global interest and record attendances.

RBR Student Remembered with Vigil

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – With the sudden death of an 18-year-old Red Bank Regional High School senior, the leader of a local community organization felt it was appropriate to honor the girl’s memory by way of a public vigil.Linda Clark, who founded the Count The Children Move­ment in the borough, organized the candlelight vigil for Sept. 14, in response to the death of Riyadhna Farrow.“We looked at it as something where we could come out and support the family and to let her friends share their love,” Clark said.According to Clark, the vigil brought about 200 people to Montgomery Terrace, where the student lived with her family.Capt. Darren McConnell, a Red Bank police spokesman, said Farrow’s death “appears to have been from natural causes,” but additional tests have been conducted. “I can tell you we ruled out any kind of foul play,” he said.“She deserved to be remembered for who she was,” said Clark, a lifelong resident.Among the roughly 200 who gathered at the Ever­green Public Housing development were fellow students, high school administration representatives, local clergy, Mayor Pasquale Menna and the six borough council members, according to Clark.Councilwoman Sharon Lee noted that similar events in the recent past have been set into motion by violent acts or to make a political statement, such as one held in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida.The gathering for Farrow wasn’t for a political reason and was attended by many fellow students. “It was grief,” she said. “It was sorrow over the loss of one of their peers.”Farrow, Lee said, was a good student, excelling in math and science, working part time at Foodtown, Broad Street.“She had focus and direction and a lot of young people don’t have that today,” Lee said. “She was a role model.”What also struck Lee was how the young people depended on each other for support. “They needed to come together and hug each other,” she said. “That’s one of the things I noticed, the prolonged hugs.“It was very comforting to the family to see so many young people come to her home and express their concern,” Lee said.The gathering provided a chance for an impromptu fundraising effort, to assist the family with funeral costs, collecting $1,150, Clark said.Farrow’s funeral service was held Tuesday evening, Sept. 18, at Pilgrim Baptist Church, 172 Shrewsbury Ave. She is survived by her parents, six brothers and four sisters.last_img read more

Vlanich scores four to help Leafs snap two-game slide

first_img“We had possession of the puck the whole game . . . we kept getting shots and just took over the entire game.”“We didn’t give (Golden) a sniff or anything,” Wilkinson added.Nelson out shot the Rockets 15-3 in the opening frame. The Eddie Mountain team played the Leafs even on the shot counter for the rest of the contest, but Tyler Moffat was there to hold the fort.Vlanich finished the game with five points while teammate Wellman added four assists.Defencemen Darnell St. Pierre and Cramer each had two helpers.Friday, Nelson fell behind 3-1 after one period, but rallied to pull to within a goal after 40 minutes as Wilkinson and Linden Horswill scored late in the frame.However, two power play goals in the third by Dallas Calvin and Braden Fuller in just over a minute secured the win for the Hawks.“I don’t know what happened,” Wilkinson expressed.“It was a pretty close game going into the third and we just kind of lost it (mentally). We took a lot of penalties and they capitalized on the power play going four for six . . . those are huge special teams numbers.”Nelson returns to the ice Thursday in Castlegar against the third-place Rebels, 16-12-1-3 in the first of a two-game home-and-home series.Friday the series shifts back to the Heritage City as Nelson plays its final game before the Christmas break.ICE CHIPS: Saturday’s breakout game for Jamie Vlanich snapped a two-game scoreless streak for the speedy center. Vlanich (19-37-56) jumps into third spot in KIJHL scoring, one points behind linemate Travis Wellman (34-25-59). . . . Nelson played the game against Golden with only five defenceman. Friday, to fill the blueline loss of Austin Seaman to a leg injury, Nelson called up Trevor Van Steinburg from the Kootenay Ice of the BC Major Midget Hockey League. The Ice lost 5-1 to Greater Vancouver Chiefs Saturday in Trail. . . . Friday, Beaver Valley received scoring from seven different players, with Ryan Edwards leading the points parade with three. Beaver Valley out shot the Leafs 44-27 in the game, including margins of 15-8 in the first period and 16-4 in the third. . . . Troy Petrich, with his second of the season, scored the other goal Friday for Nelson. Mid-season slumps have become all-too familiar to some players on the Nelson Leafs.So after the Beaver Valley Nitehawks pounded the Leafs 7-3 Friday in Fruitvale, Nelson was in need of a stopper to halt the slide.Veteran Jamie Vlanich proved to be that stopper as the Trail native scored four consecutive times to spark the Leafs to a 5-1 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Golden Rockets Saturday at the NDCC Arena.The win snapped a two-game losing streak, allowing Nelson to maintain the lead in the Murdoch Division.Nelson, 23-4-1-3, leads second-place Beaver Valley by five points following weekend play.“That was the big-bounce-back-game we needed,” said Leaf winger Alex Wilkinson, standing in for Vlanich during the post-game press conference.“Everything came together for us. We played well in all parts of the game and played for a full 60 minutes.”Nelson led 2-0 after one period on goals by Cole Arcuri and Vlanich, scoring his first of the game on the power play.Vlanich then increased Nelson’s lead to 3-0 converting a pretty shorthanded marker before Matt McMath beat Tyler Moffat on the same power play.Vlanich completed the hat-trick before the period ended, then added his fourth of the game on a pretty three-way passing play with Robson Cramer and the artist, Travis Wellman.“Right from the get-go, we just came out flying,” Wilkinson explained when asked about the difference between Friday in Fruitvale and Saturday at home.last_img read more

Hands-On with Google Docs for iPad and iPhone

first_img4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… john paul titlow 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnoutcenter_img Tags:#biz#Reviews#Software Guides Isn’t living in the future awesome? Right now, I’m writing this blog post on my phone while using an elliptical machine at my local gym. When I get back to my desk, this draft will be waiting for me in Google Docs, where I can edit it, add links and get it ready to publish. If I want to grab coffee later, I could bring my iPad with me and make some last minute fixes from the cafe. Everything will be saved automatically in the cloud.As we reported in November, the ability edit, save and delete Google Docs was recently made available to iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users. While third parties have already developed mobile apps for managing Google Docs, this marks the first time Google itself has enabled mobile editing in the Web app for its popular cloud-based office suite.So how does it stack up? In a nutshell, the experience of editing and managing Google Docs from iOS devices is pretty good. But like many brand new features, it could go further, and hopefully we’ll see improvements over time.What It Does Well Since late November, the mobile-optimized Web version of Google Docs has enabled users to create, edit and delete documents on the go, which can really come in handy for business users, especially those who might travel or work remotely. Being able to edit documents from a variety of devices without worrying about keeping track of the latest version is priceless.For some users, it may take some getting used to the fact that there’s no “save” button. Instead, the document auto-saves every few seconds as you type. Well, technically there is a “save” button, but it only displays when the document hasn’t been auto-saved but it saves so frequently that you almost never see the option to save manually.Typing on the iPad is pretty effective in general, but it can get clumsy if you type fast. If you’re a professional writer or prefer to type very quickly, your best bet would be to use an external keyboard and turning off auto-correct so as to avoid introducing any unnecessary changes that you might not notice when reviewing the document later. Apple’s wireless keyboard for desktops works great with the iPad, or there are a number of iPad-specific keyboards.iPhone users already know how tedious typing on the device can be and using Google Docs on it is no different. That said, it’s no worse than typing an email or a long text message. You just have to take your time and keep an eye out for unintentionally hilarious auto-corrections.What if you lose your data or WiFi connection? Do you lose all of your precious work? Nope. Thankfully, the Google Docs mobile Web app makes smart use of HTML5’s offline storage feature. If you’re without a signal, the application still works; it just can’t save your work. Thus you can continue to type away and make changes, and the app will sync and save your document the next time the device is online. Just be careful about trying to load any other new pages or data in Safari in the meantime, as there’s a chance doing so could cause you to lose your changes.Some Room For ImprovementThe user interface is extremely simple, and that’s typically a good thing. However, in this case, it feels like there are missing features. And there are. You can’t format text, add links or align paragraphs. There are no document-sharing options enabled. You can literally just type and edit text. Users who rely on a real-time spellchecker to keep their spelling ability in check might be disappointed by the fact that there are no red, squiggly lines under the words they most ruthlessly butcher. The native iOS spellchecker and auto-correction will have to suffice, at least until one can get back to the desktop version of Google Docs, where these stripped-out features are available. Or if you just can’t wait, you can access the desktop version of a document from the iPad by clicking the “Desktop” link at the bottom of the page. There does appear to be at least one bug on the iPad version. In my testing, anytime a suggested spelling popped up, I was unable to tap it to X it out as one normally can. Instead, the Web app interprets the tap as if it’s intended to select a line in the document itself. For now, the mobile version of Google Docs only supports the creation of text documents and spreadsheets, whereas the desktop version allows for PowerPoint-style presentations, Web forms and drawings.Despite these limitations, Google Docs for mobile is overall an effective and easy-to-use experience. We’ll be excited to see it improved moving forward, especially on the iPad, which offers greater opportunities for a more robust, feature-rich interface. Related Posts last_img read more
