Golf News:With the weather playing “will it-won’t it” games at the moment, congratulations to all those golfers who take to the fairways, probably getting any rustiness cleared of the swing before the GUI competitions begin.At the moment, it seems to be the lower handicapped golfers who are making regular visits to the winners’ enclosure and none more so than Clifford Malone , following up his St. Patrick’s Day Cup win with another 1st on Wednesday 25th Open. Despite a bogey start and a few pars mixed in on the front nine, Clifford’s winning mentality kicked in following his birdie at the par five 11th which he followed up with a level par finish to 18th for an inward nine of 20pts and an overall total of a modest 37pts to win on a three-way B.O.T. from Joe Brown  a regular prizewinner from last season. Whilst probably rueing “blanks” at 1st & 13th, Joe recorded 20pts on back nine to relegate Ciaran Bradley  to third place. Gross prize was won by Captain Gerard Duffy with 30 gross points. Saturday 26th Open at Barnhill was won by visiting golfer Seamus Mc Cauley  with 38pts. Having recorded 20pts on front nine, Seamus retrieved his non scoring “blank” at 14th with a finishing birdie at par five 18th to pip runner-up Aiden Friel  by one point. Aiden’s birdies at 5th & 7th were somewhat diminished by a double bogey at 6th but a 20pt front nine gave him great impetus on the turn only for another double bogey at par three 13th to no doubt “scuttle” the top spot.Sunday 29th confined competition, played in bouts of sunshine intermitten with wintry showers and sleet, was won by cat 3. handicapper Gareth Devenney . Playing steady handicap golf over front nine, Gareth, despite recording a double bogey and a “blank”, on back nine, retrieved his card somewhat with a birdie at 18th to finish on 38pts and top of the winners rostrum.Easter Weekend of Golf at Barnhill starts on Good Friday with a Singles Open Stroke competition. Easter Saturday Open sponsored by Gallinagh’s Letterkenny Tool Hire & Sales while Easter Sunday’s Open is sponsored by Global Tiles & Bathrooms.There will also be a Bank Holiday Monday Open on the 6th.

Some members of a Fossil R&D team are also joining Google as part of the deal. César Salza / CNET Google is buying secret smartwatch technology from Fossil for $40 million. Design company Fossil said Thursday some members of the research and development team supporting that intellectual property will join Google as well. “We’ve built and advanced a technology that has the potential to improve upon our existing platform of smartwatches,” said Greg McKelvey, executive vice president and chief strategy and digital officer at Fossil, in a press release (PDF). “Together with Google, our innovation partner, we’ll continue to unlock growth in wearables.” The deal is expected to close later this month. Google declined to share further information about Fossil’s smartwatch technology that it’s buying. In 2015, Fossil acquired Misfit, a wearable-tech startup focused on fitness trackers, for $260 million. The deal married Fossil’s fashion and watchmaking skills with Misfit’s technology. But Fossil appears to be getting out of that market. Fossil and Google have put out a few smartwatches. The fashion company’s latest, Fossil Sport, was a Google Wear OS smartwatch released in November. The watch had Qualcomm’s newest 3100 wearable chip to make its battery life longer. Last year, Google and its partners like Fossil put the emphasis more on fitness when they designed their smartwatches. The devices’ fitness-tracking feature, Google Fit, was revamped with new Move Minutes and Heart Point goals. Sarah Tew/CNET 0 Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen.

Turo: Save $30 on any car rental $210 at Best Buy $999 $60 at Best Buy Sarah Tew/CNET Tags I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. DJI Osmo Action camera: $261 (save $89) Google,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.
General Electric Co said it had agreed to sell GE Capital’s U.S. hotel franchise loan portfolio to a unit of Western Alliance Bancorp.The business, which includes outstanding loans of about $1.4 billion, provides real estate financing to owners of limited service hotels.GE said it would also sell to an unnamed buyer its business that provides financing to Canada’s hospitality and restaurant industries. The unit has about $300 million of loans.GE said it would gain about $200 million from the deals, which are expected to close in the second quarter.Both the businesses represent a large part of GE Capital’s franchise finance unit, which is the last North American business to be sold as part of a plan to cut down the size of GE Capital, GE said.The deal is expected to immediately add to Western Alliance’s earnings, the bank said in a separate statement.

She’s based in New York and reports directly to Maribel Perez Wadsworth, president of the USA Today Network and publisher of USA Today.Most recently, Gutman was VP of strategy and digital media at A+E Networks International. During her tenure at A+E, she grew the company’s content distribution business and built relationships with over 30 different digital platforms, as well as also launched new digital products and services leveraging the A&E, History and Lifetime channels and content libraries. After six years at A+E, “I felt that I was looking for a slightly different challenge,” Gutman said, adding that she was interested in working in the U.S. media market. That said, “it’s a similar challenge to what I had with A+E: How does Gannett take their intellectual property and monetize that further? This felt very much in my wheelhouse.”Gutman “is a forward-thinker with a keen ability to recognize opportunities in today’s media environment and we are excited about the future of our portfolio under her leadership,” Wadsworth said in announcing her hire.In addition to developing USA Today Network’s niche-oriented digital properties, Gutman also will oversee Gannett’s digital video and podcast studios. She and her team also will support company’s live-events business, which include the High School Sports Awards series (now in more than 20 markets); the Wine & Food Experience in partnership with Martha Stewart; and the Storytellers Project, a live event series featuring first-person stories from communities across the U.S.Prior to joining A+E Networks in 2012, Gutman led the digital business for Reader’s Digest International and also has held senior digital and business strategy roles at Rodale, Bertelsmann and Lagardere Group. She holds a bachelor’s degree in economics and an MBA from Columbia University.
The findings showed that peanut consumption in infancy can have no negative effect on a child’s growth as well as nutrition.“The results reassured that peanut consumption did not affect the duration of breast feeding, thus countering concerns that introduction of solid foods before six months of age could reduce breast feeding duration,” said led author Mary Feeney from King’s College London.The research, published online in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, aimed at determining the adverse effects on child growth and nutrition as a result of taking high peanut products during early infancy along with the ones who avoid it. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“These findings indicate that early-life introduction of peanut-containing foods as a strategy to prevent the subsequent development of peanut allergy is both feasible and nutritionally safe, even at high levels of peanut consumption,” said Marshall Plaut from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in the US.The results of an earlier clinical trial showed that introducing peanut products as a part of the dietary foods for infants lead to an 81 per cent relative reduction of allergies in comparison to products that avoided peanut altogether.For the study, the investigators randomly assigned 640 infants aged four to 11 months, which continued till the age of five, to either consume at least two grams of peanut protein three times a week or to avoid peanut entirely
