2013-2-11 lpga gallery stacy lewis

11:37 a.m. EST              February 12, 2013

Stacy Lewis wore a back brace for 18 hours a day for seven years after being diagnosed with scoliosis. After her back didn’t heal properly, a steel rod and five screws were surgically placed in her vertebrae.

But don’t tell Lewis she has a target on her back this year.

Not even after she was the best player in women’s golf last year, a four-time winner who was the first American to be Player of the Year since 1994. Not even after 12 other top-10s and tour-leading numbers of birdies, eagles and rounds in the 60s. And not even though she’s currently No. 3 in the world and heads into the start of the LPGA tour season Thursday in the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open on a better roll than anyone.

“I think Yani still has that target on her back,” Lewis said of Yani Tseng, still the No. 1 player in the world who earned 20 worldwide wins from 2010-12 but mysteriously slumped in 2012 after winning three of the first five events. “I don’t feel like I have a target on my back. As far as looking at the whole Tour, there are a lot of good players. There are just so many great players out there. We all push each other.”

They will push each other through a robust schedule which includes a return to St. Andrews for the Ricoh Women’s British Open, the Solheim Cup and five majors with the elevation of the Evian Championship. There are new tournaments in the Bahamas, Texas and China as the tour will play 28 events, up from 23 in 2011.

But the number Lewis is concerned about is 1.

“What can I prove this year after last year? That I can be No. 1 in the world,” Lewis said. “That’s the next goal on my list, to take that spot from Yani. But it doesn’t really change what I do week in and week out. I still have to put myself in contention to win and have a chance on Sundays.”

After a busy, and then relaxing, offseason — she ran the Arkansas football team onto the field, promoted the Solheim Cup in Colorado and did more commercial shoots, TV interviews and other media obligations than she ever had between seasons — Lewis stepped up her time on the range.

“I just have to balance my time and I know it’s part of the deal, but I’m getting used to it,” Lewis said. “And I told my agents that we need to say no to some stuff because golf will always be No. 1 for me. I need to practice.”

And find a driver. Although she won twice after cracking her favorite big dog while finishing in a tie for second at Evian, she’s still tinkering to find a perfect match. And she’s most looking forward to the majors and the Solheim Cup.

“I want the U.S. Women’s Open and I want to be in contention more in the majors,” Lewis said. “And with this being a Solheim Cup year, I think all the Americans are going to be extra motivated.”

Europe’s best is motivated as well. Suzann Pettersen, the heart and soul of the Euros in their 2011 Solheim triumph, said the LPGA tour is headed in the right direction and the talent just keeps getting better and deeper every year.

“There’s a lot to look forward to this year — the majors, the great players, going back to St. Andrews,” Pettersen said. “My biggest goal is the U.S. Open. There is a lot of energy and preparation with that goal in my mind. It’s usually the toughest test and toughest challenge.

“And it’s fantastic to go back to St. Andrews. But there’s a quick turnaround after that tournament because we have to come back to step on the necks of the Americans in the Solheim Cup.

“It should be a great year.”

parachute

19:30 EST               11 February 2013

A California man who was unconscious as he plummeted to earth in a terrifying skydiving accident can finally see the crash landing he miraculously survived on footage captured by a GoPro video camera.

After two years of training at the Skydive Monterey Bay School and 29 successful jumps, Gerardo Flores was long beyond any fear at jumping out of a plane.

Then, only seconds into his 30th freefall, he felt a jerk as his chute unexpectedly opened at 13,000 feet.

Surprise: Without warning, Flores’ chute suddenly opens at 13,000 feet

‘It just exploded,’ he said. ‘It just it yanked me to the side. Something went wrong.

‘One hundred things go through your mind. You are never suppose to open above 6,000 feet.’

In the footage, Flores begins talking to the camera, saying he can see the drop zone thousands of feet below and deciding whether to cut his chute loose and rely on the backup.

‘I said wait a minute,’ he said. If I pull right now, what if the reserve doesn’t open?’

All can remember now is looking down on the drop zone before he passed out.

He fell to earth 20 minutes later, still unconscious, miraculously crashing in the drop zone.

Without warning: Suddenly, Flores’ shoot opens at 13,000 feet, jerking him forward
parachute
Shaken: Both Flores and his camera are rattled as the winds pull the parachute along

Teachers from the school rushed to his side and called 911.

He was later airlifted the a hospital.

He was unconscious for two weeks, having suffered only broken ribs and a lacerated tongue.

‘The FAA said you are the luckiest man I ever met,’ he said.

An FAA report found a ‘critical’ velcro closing flap on Flores’ equipment was ‘completely worn.’ Suspension lines were broken and the rigging had knots in it. The inspectors noted, ‘these lines should have been replaced prior top allowing this parachute to be placed in service.’

When Flores watched the footage of himself falling, he was overcome with emotion.

Moment of truth: Flores begins speaking to camera, debating whether he should cut his chute loose and rely on the backup

parachute
Faulty: An FAA report would later reveal the parachute to have numerous issues, included knotted rigging, broken suspension lines, and a worn ‘critical’ velcro closing flap
parachute
Gone: Still thousands of feet from the drop zone, Flores begins to lose consciousness

‘Oh my god, I can hear myself choking,’ he told CBS SF Bay Area. ‘I could have died that day!’

Skydive Monterey Bay declined an interview request but told sent a statement to reporters saying that Flores’ gear was ‘in proper working order’ and that ‘improper use by the jumper’ was the cause of the accident.

Another industry expert found cause for concern after reading the FAA report.

‘My real problem was him wearing a video camera,’ Dr. Craig Stapleton said. ‘It can be a distraction. The United States Parachuting Association recommends at least 100 jumps for a video camera.’

Stapleton has more than 8,000 jumps to his name as a member of the U.S. parachuting team.

‘It is a dangerous sport,’ he said. ‘You’re jumping out of an aircraft in flight. That is part of the thrill that lures people to the sport.’

Stapleton added that statistically 99.99 per cent of the time you will survive a jump.

parachute
Miracle: Amazingly, Flores manages to land in the drop zone even as he remains passed out
parachute
Still rolling: Even with Flores passed out, the camera begins recording instructors and paramedics crowding around his body
parachute
Rescue: Paramedics begin readying the unconscious Flores to be airlifted to the hospital

However he also believed the worn-out gear recorded in the FAA report was cause for alarm.

‘it covers that area where the deployment system is situated, so it makes it easier for things to run into that pin, to knock that pin that keeps the container closed,’ he said.

As there is little regulation over parachuting the person responsible for checking the gear, an FAA certified rigger, can also be an employee of the company.

parachute
Overcome: Watching the footage, Flores becomes emotional as he can hear himself choking off camera
parachute
Denial: The Skydive Monterey Bay school has blamed any problems on Flores, who they claim didn’t manage the equipment properly and was distracted by a video camera

‘Essentially unless they bring a rigger to the drop zone and pull every rig off the shelf, there isn’t any way to inspect them,’ Stapleton said.

Flores at least is done with the school.

‘I put my trust and life on the line trusting the school,’ he said. ‘Now that I know that schools can actually do this, never again.’

February 5, 2013

For the second time in a week, a high-profile baseball player has been cited in documents linked to a shuttered anti-aging clinic that is under investigation for the distribution of performance-enhancing drugs.

Yahoo Sports reported on Tuesday night that the name of the Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun is on three records from the clinic, including one that appears to show Braun owed the Miami-area facility $20,000 to $30,000.

In another document, the Web site said, there are multiple mentions of a lawyer who helped Braun avoid being suspended for 50 games last year after he had tested positive for having an elevated level of testosterone. The report also noted that there were no drug notations next to Braun’s name, as there were in documents that emerged last week in Miami New Times.

Those documents linked a half-dozen major leaguers to the clinic, Biogenesis, and its owner, Anthony Bosch, and to the use of performance enhancers. The most prominent of those players was Alex Rodriguez, who was listed 16 times in what were described as clinic ledgers, with various drugs mentioned in some of those entries.

Rodriguez has since denied having a relationship with Bosch or being treated by him.

Braun issued his own denial on Tuesday night, saying in a written statement that during the course of preparing for the appeal of his positive test last year, “my attorneys, who were previously familiar with Tony Bosch, used him as a consultant.” He said Bosch answered questions for his lawyers about testosterone levels and the possibilities of tampering with urine samples.

“There was a dispute over compensation for Bosch’s work, which is why my lawyer and I are listed under ‘moneys owed’ and not on any other list,” Braun said. “I have nothing to hide and have never had any other relationship with Bosch. I will fully cooperate with any inquiry into this matter.”

Bosch is not a licensed physician in Florida, where he has lived for much of his life, and it’s unclear where he went to college or what medical expertise he has. According to a person with knowledge of the matter, Bosch’s name was never cited by Braun’s side during the appeal process.

Last February, a baseball arbitrator ruled that Braun could not be suspended because there were chain-of-custody questions surrounding his urine samples.

As a result, Braun became the first player in the sport to successfully appeal a positive test. Still, he played the 2012 season with something of a stigma, although that did not prevent him from again producing strong numbers — 41 home runs, 112 runs batted in, a .319 batting average. Now the question is what problems this new disclosure may create for him.

The Yahoo report added that the Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and Baltimore Orioles third baseman Danny Valencia were also mentioned in the documents they examined, but that like Braun’s listing, theirs did not have notations about drug use. A career backup with the Yankees, Cervelli figures to compete for more playing time this year with the departure of Russell Martin to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Cervelli denied any wrongdoing in a Twitter message he posted Tuesday night.

“Following my foot injury in March 2011 I consulted with a number of experts, including the Biogenesis clinic, for legal ways to aid my rehab and recovery,” the message said. “I purchased supplements I am certain were not prohibited by MLB.”

As more names of players emerged in connection with the clinic, investigators for baseball continued efforts to get their hands on the documents and attempt to confirm the information contained in them.

A Miami New Times editor said in a telephone message on Tuesday that the newspaper had met with Major League Baseball officials and was considering whether to share the documents it has. A spokesman for baseball declined to comment on the matter.

However, it is known that baseball officials believe that obtaining the records could significantly help them as they try to build potential cases against the major leaguers so far linked to the clinic — Rodriguez, Gio Gonzalez, Bartolo Colon, Melky Cabrera, Nelson Cruz, Yasmani Grandal and now Braun, Cervelli and Valencia.

Colon, Cabrera and Grandal all were suspended last year for positive drug tests.

Braun may draw particular scrutiny from baseball officials because they were angered that he evaded punishment last year on what they viewed as a technicality. Their suspicions of Braun have been heightened because the substance that he tested positive for in the fall of 2011 — an elevated level of testosterone — is the same one that subsequently led to the suspensions for Colon, Grandal and Cabrera.

Now all four have been linked to the Bosch clinic by various documents — as have two others, a teammate of Braun’s at the University of Miami and a trainer for the university who has worked with Braun.

Baseball is also mindful that when Braun appealed his positive drug test, he was required to provide detailed information, including the names of doctors and others he consulted for medical reasons. If baseball’s investigators were to uncover evidence that Braun was treated by Bosch at some point and did not disclose it during his appeal, he could be suspended for lying. However, no player has ever been suspended on those grounds since baseball, in 2004, instituted penalties for the use of performance enhancers.

U.S. Clint Dempsey, second from right, is challenged by Honduras' Victor Bernardez, second from left, during a 2014 World Cup qualifying soccer game in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Wednesday Feb. 6, 2013. (AP Photo/Moises Castillo)

Thursday February 7, 2013

Jerry Bengston took advantage of a defensive mix-up to score the go-ahead goal in the 79th minute, and Honduras rallied to beat the United States 2-1 Wednesday in the opener of the final qualifying round for next year’s World Cup.

Clint Dempsey put the U.S. ahead in the 36th minute but the Americans, using a new-look defense that featured Omar Gonzalez and Timmy Chandler, gave up the lead when Juan Carlos Garcia tied the score with a bicycle kick in the 40th at San Pedro Sula.

Bengston, who plays for Major League Soccer’s New England Revolution, scored the winner when defender Geoff Cameron and goalkeeper Tim Howard both went for a pass by Maynor Figueroa to Oscar Boniek Garcia. That allowed Garcia to tap the ball across to Bengston for a shot into an open net, and Gonzalez was too late to challenge him.

Playing without Landon Donovan, a veteran of three World Cups who is unsure whether to continue his career, the 28th-ranked U.S. was under pressure for much of the match. No. 59 Honduras had the better chances, forcing Howard into several difficult saves

Gonzalez had a chance to redeem himself, getting his head on a corner kick by Graham Zusi in the final seconds of stoppage time. But his shot from the 6-yard box sailed well above the crossbar.

The U.S., which had been 12-3-3 against Honduras, lost its final-round opener for the first time in five games since the “hexagonal” format was adopted in qualifying for the 1998 tournament. The Americans are seeking their seventh straight tip to soccer’s showcase.

The general rule in qualifying is to win home games and pick up points on the road. The top three nations in the six-team group represent North and Central America and the Caribbean at next year’s tournament in Brazil, and the No. 4 country advances to a playoff for another berth, likely against New Zealand.

In openers later Wednesday, Mexico hosted Jamaica and Costa Rica was at Panama. Qualifying resumes next month when the U.S. hosts Costa Rica on March 22 at Commerce City, Colo., then plays four days later at Mexico.

Gonzalez replaced captain Carlos Bocanegra in central defense, and Chandler was in the starting lineup to play right back in his competitive debut for the Americans — tying the German-American to the U.S. team.

The game marked somewhat of a generational change for the U.S. defense, with Chandler (22), Gonzalez (24), Cameron (27) and Fabian Johnson (25) on the backline. The Americans had played 16 consecutive qualifiers since 2008 with at least one 30-year-old defender in the starting lineup.

Chandler and Gonzalez, the 6-foot-4 center back from the Los Angeles Galaxy, had never played together before.

The U.S. went ahead when Jozy Altidore played the ball to Jermaine Jones, who flicked the ball over the defense. In full stride, Dempsey volleyed the ball with his right foot past goalkeeper Noel Valladares from 8 yards. With his 31st goal in 92 appearances, Dempsey moved past Brian McBride into sole possession of third place on the U.S. career scoring list. Dempsey has six of the Americans’ 12 goals in qualifying for 2014.

But for the fourth straight road qualifier, the U.S. scored first only to give up the lead — on a play strung together by three defenders.

Oscar Boniek Garcia’s corner kick went all the way to the opposite side of the field, bounced four times and was played back to the center by Victor Bernandez after no American chased the ball down. Figueroa chested the pass up to Juan Carlos Garcia, who with his back to the goal scored on an overhead kick from 10 yards that went to Howard’s right, leaving the goalkeeper bent over in shock. It was Garcia’s first goal in 18 international appearances.

Honduras appeared for a moment to take the lead in the 56th minute, but Carlo Costly was ruled offside when he slotted the ball past Howard.

U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann used his three substitutes in the early part of the second half, inserting Maurice Edu, Sacha Kljestan and Zusi for Danny Williams, Eddie Johnson and Jones.

Torres does not have a college degree or much formal management training, Bloomberg reports. Thanks to In-N-Out’s large fan base at its nearly 280 restaurants in five states, the chain is now worth roughly $1.1 billion, according to estimates — 19,298 times more than the median U.S. household in 2010.

Bloomberg has uncovered other secret billionaires over the past year. It reported in September that the private Elaine Marshall, 70, is the fourth-richest woman in the United States, thanks to her 15 percent stake in Koch Industries. Bloomberg revealed in August that Dirce Navarro de Camargo is Brazil’s richest woman. And Bloomberg reported last week that four step-grandchildren of former Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels are billionaires.

Bloomberg founder Michael Bloomberg, currently mayor of New York City, is a prominent billionaire. He is the 11th-richest person in the U.S. and 20th-richest person in the world, according to Forbes, with an estimated worth of $22 billion.

Myles Wilkinson won a fantasy football contest to attend Super Bowl XLVII, but his dreams of going to the big game went up in smoke because of a 1981 pot bust.

According to a story by the CBC, the 50-year Canadian man was denied entry to the United States this week because of a conviction for possession of two grams of marijuana over 30 years ago.

Wilkinson, a Seattle Seahawks fan from Vancouver Island, beat out almost four million other players to win the trip to see the San Francisco 49ers play the Baltimore Ravens. But when he got to the airport on Thursday, U.S. customs agents brought up an arrest the man had when he was 19. They denied him entry to the country and ended any chance of making it down to New Orleans for a memorable weekend.

“I had two grams of cannabis. I paid a $50 fine,” Wilkinson told CBC. “I can’t believe that this is happening, for something that happened 32 years ago.”

CBC said Bud Light Canada, who sponsored the contest, invited Wilkinson to their Super Bowl party in Vancouver after hearing about his unfortunate situation.

That’s a nice gesture and Vancouver is a very beautiful city, but let’s be blunt: It’s also the most depressing consolation gift ever.

Since retiring from the Navy SEALs, Chris Kyle, whom the Pentagon has deemed as among America’s deadliest snipers, would occasionally take fellow veterans shooting as a kind of therapy to salve battlefield scars.

Mr. Kyle, 38, author of the best-selling book “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History,” was with a struggling former soldier on just such an outing on Saturday, hoping that a day at a shooting range would bring some relief, said a friend, Travis Cox.

But the Texas authorities said Sunday that the troubled veteran turned on Mr. Kyle and a second man, Chad Littlefield, shooting and killing both before fleeing in a pickup truck.

“Chad and Chris had taken a veteran out to shoot to try to help him,” Mr. Cox said. “And they were killed.”

The police identified the gunman as Eddie Ray Routh, 25, who had served in both Iraq and Afghanistan and had suffered from mental illness. The police offered no information about a possible motive.

Mr. Routh shot the men about 3:30 p.m. on Saturday at the Rough Creek Lodge, an exclusive shooting range near Glen Rose, Tex., about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth, Sgt. Lonny Haschel, a spokesman for the State Department of Public Safety’s Highway Patrol Division, said in a statement. Mr. Routh was arrested on Saturday night at his home in Lancaster, a suburb south of Dallas. He has been charged with two counts of capital murder, Mr. Haschel said.

Mr. Cox, the director of a foundation that Mr. Kyle created, said he did not know Mr. Routh. Mr. Kyle, he said, had devoted his life since his retirement from the military to helping fellow soldiers overcome post-traumatic stress.

In 2011, Mr. Kyle created the FITCO Cares Foundation to provide veterans with exercise equipment and counseling. He believed that exercise and the camaraderie of fellow veterans could help former soldiers ease into civilian life. “He served this country with extreme honor, but came home and was a servant leader in helping his brothers and sisters dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder,” Mr. Cox, also a former military sniper, said by telephone.

Mr. Kyle, who lived outside of Dallas, had his own difficulties adjusting after retiring from the SEALs in 2009. He was deployed in Iraq during the worst years of the insurgency, perched in or on top of bombed-out apartment buildings with his .300 Winchester Magnum.

His job was to provide “overwatch,” preventing enemy fighters from ambushing Marines as they moved through Iraqi towns.

He did not think the job would be difficult, he wrote in his book, but two weeks into the war, he found himself staring through his scope into the face of an unconventional enemy. A woman with a child had pulled a grenade from beneath her clothes as several Marines approached. He hesitated, he wrote, but then fired the shot.

“It was my duty to shoot, and I don’t regret it,” he wrote. “My shots saved several Americans, whose lives were clearly worth more than that woman’s twisted soul.”

Over time, his hesitation diminished and he became better at his job. He was credited with more than 150 deaths. He became the scourge of Iraqi insurgents, who put a price on his head and were said to have called him the “Devil of Ramadi.” In his book, he describes taking out a fighter wielding a rocket launcher 2,100 yards away, a very long distance for a sniper and the longest for Mr. Kyle.

“Maybe the way I jerked the trigger to the right adjusted for the wind,” he wrote. “Maybe gravity shifted and put that bullet right where it had to be.”

“Whatever, I watched through my scope as the shot hit the Iraqi, who tumbled over the wall to the ground.”

Mr. Kyle received two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars for valor.

He would later describe his service in humble terms, preferring to talk not about the enemies killed, but the lives saved.

“I feel pretty good because I am not just killing someone, I am also saving people,” he said in a January 2012 interview with The Dallas Morning News. “What keeps me up at night is not the people that I have killed, it is the people I wasn’t able to save.”

In an interview with The New York Times in March, Mr. Kyle said that he had hesitated to write a book about his experiences. But he was persuaded to do so after hearing that other books about SEALs were in the works.

“I wanted to tell my story as a SEAL,” he said. “This is about all the hardships that everybody has to go through to get the respect and the honor.”

But he also wanted his sense of humor to come out, he said, noting that he tried to “write in a Texas drawl.”

The book, which was published in January of last year, spent months on The New York Times best-seller list and turned Mr. Kyle into a celebrity. He appeared on talk shows like “Conan” with Conan O’Brien.

He also played a role in the NBC reality program “Stars Earn Stripes,” in which celebrities were paired with elite soldiers to carry out military-style missions.

For all his success, friends and fellow veterans described Mr. Kyle as a humble warrior and down-to-earth family man who loved his wife and two children. In gatherings with other veterans, he would deflect the praise of well-wishers and play up the achievements of his comrades.

“He wasn’t the ‘American Sniper’ to all of his friends,” Mr. Cox said. “He was Chris Kyle, and he was right alongside you. He was proud to be a veteran, and he would do anything he could to serve veterans.”

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Eddie Ray Routh

5 (E is the 5th letter of the alphabet) + 4 (d is the 4th letter of the alphabet) + 4 (d is the 4th letter of the alphabet) = 13

So the number 13 rules his first twenty-seven years of life.
