British Open 2019: Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson miss same major cut for first time

first_imgPORTRUSH, Northern Ireland — Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson shared a piece of unwanted history at The Open Championship on Friday.The key to the success of two of golf’s greatest stars has been their longevity, with Woods winning 15 major titles and Mickelson five during their distinguished careers. What is astounding is that it marks the first time Woods and Mickelson have missed the cut at the same major tournament, and just the fourth time the pair have done so on the PGA Tour. But, there have of course been the inevitable disappointments and this weekend at Royal Portrush has been one such occasion as Woods and Mickelson failed to make the cut.That in itself is not particularly remarkable, even the greatest have their share of underwhelming major tournaments.

first_imgEx-Man Utd boss ​Mourinho: De Gea lucky to get new contractby Ansser Sadiqa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho believes that David De Gea is lucky to get a new contract at the club.United renewed goalkeeper De Gea with a four-year contract, giving him a salary raise.Mourinho, who was United manager until last December, does not believe the Spaniard has shown the recent form to merit the deal.”I think the moment where he signs his huge contract is the moment where I don’t think United need to pay as much as that to have him,” Mourinho stated on Sky Sports.”One or two years ago he had the world after him and, in this moment, when he signed his incredible contract, I think the majority of the big doors were closed.”Real Madrid’s door is closed, they don’t sign a goalkeeper after [Thibaut] Courtois, Barcelona is closed with the young and fantastic [Marc-Andre] Ter Stegen, Paris Saint-Germain is closed because they signed Keylor Navas, who is a very good goalkeeper and 34 years old for a goalkeeper is not a problem at all.”I don’t see United under pressure because David is going to disappear. Who is going to pay these numbers? So, I think he gets a phenomenal contract in a moment where he is a bit lucky to get it.”Is he good? Yes, he’s very good, in the same way I was saying that [Victor] Lindelof is good in some aspects and not as good in other aspects of the game, I could say the same about David.”He is much better on the line than he is coming out but I think in goal his agility, his technical level, is second to none.” About the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Police Motorcycle backfiring causes panic in Times Square

first_imgNew York City: The New York Police Department says the loud noise of a motorcycle backfiring caused a panic and sent people scrambling in Times Square. The department tweeted Tuesday evening, “There is no #ActiveShooter in #TimesSquare.

PIX11 reports that some people on Twitter thought the noise was an explosion and that many people ran into buildings and stores.

AFN chief critical of RCMP pipeline intervention

first_imgHOUSTON, B.C. – The national chief of the Assembly of First Nations says the use of force against people peacefully protesting the construction of a pipeline in northern British Columbia is a violation of their human and aboriginal rights.Fourteen people have been taken into custody at a blockade southwest of Houston, B.C., where some members of the Gidimt’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation had set up a camp to control access to a pipeline project across their territory.“Building consensus under duress will make the resolution of the situation in northern British Columbia very difficult,” Perry Bellegarde said in a statement on Tuesday. “Real consensus will be built when the parties, with very different views, come together in meaningful and productive dialogue. And I am confident that they can do this.” An RCMP statement says the arrests on Monday came when officers determined a resolution was unlikely after they spoke with camp members about complying with a court order and removing the blockade.TransCanada subsidiary Coastal GasLink obtained an injunction from the Supreme Court of British Columbia ordering the removal of obstructions in area as preliminary work gets underway on a pipeline carrying natural gas from the Dawson Creek area to Kitimat.Protests took place across the country Tuesday in support of the Gidimt’en clan members who are opposed to the pipeline.Bellegarde said the Canadian and B.C. governments have promised to implement UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples but in northern B.C. they are imposing their laws over those of the Wet’suwet’en.“If this was really about the ‘rule of law’ then governments would be honouring the rights and title of First Nations in their traditional territories, which are recognized by Canada’s own courts,” he added. “The AFN supports the governance and decision-making process of the Wet’suwet’en leaders. Canada and B.C. should do the same. There is no reconciliation in the actions that unfolded yesterday.”NDP member of Parliament Nathan Cullen, who represents the area, said the protest he witnessed on Monday was “determined” but “peaceful. He estimated about 200 police officers were used to enforce the court injunction. “I don’t think there was any immediate public safety concerns from having a few chiefs and a reporter observe what was going on,” he said.The company says it has signed agreements with all First Nations along the route for LNG Canada’s $40 billion liquefied natural gas project in Kitimat, but demonstrators argue Wet’suwet’en house chiefs, who are hereditary rather than elected, have not given consent.LNG Canada announced in October that it was moving ahead with its plans for the Kitimat export facility. Construction on the 670-kilometre natural gas pipeline, slated to cost $6.2 billion, is scheduled to begin this month.Protests in different parts of the country were held to back members of the First Nation who oppose the pipeline.In Ottawa, protesters blocked a major intersection near Parliament Hill and roads were also blocked in downtown Vancouver to accommodate demonstrators outside the B.C. Supreme Court.center_img Cpl. Madonna Saunderson would not say how many RCMP officers were involved in the operation.“We have a contingency of police officers involved in this enforcement action,” she said. “We have what is needed, what we feel we need.”The Mounties placed exclusion areas and road closures near the Morice River Bridge where the blockade was located that prevented Coastal GasLink from getting access to its pipeline right of way.Cullen said it was “worrisome” when the police began denying the media access to the area because there is public interest in what was happening.last_img read more
