The move by the scandal scarred Woods is a last ditch effort to save the marriage of the world’s top golfer and best known and highest paid athlete. Will it work? And what could it mean for his career?Woods announced his decision two weeks after crashing his SUV into a tree outside his Florida home, setting off a striking spiral of events, with one woman after another coming forward to claim she’d had a sexual relationship with him. Before that, Woods rarely made news off the golf course.
Those who are still listening to Radio tend to have more nostalgic tastes in music, they don’t want to hear the same Pop, R and Dance hits over and over again. Which is why Radio 1 did their greatest hits month to try bring people back in. But it clearly hasn’t worked..
Olympians give gumboot toss a go Olympians Dame Valerie Adams and Mah Drysdale made guest appearances in an unfamiliar sport during the third annual Hilux New Zealand Rural Games in Palmerston North on Saturday. The double gold medallists swapped shot puts and rowing oars for Red Bands as they competed as wild card entries in the New Zealand Gumboot Throwing Championship. Drysdale finished an uncharacteristic last in the men’s competition that was won by James Kellow of Whanganui with a throw of 42.24m.

Says that the mounting evidence combined with the layers of issues at hand (lying, cheating, bullying, illegal drug use) may mean the foundation needs to be and reorganized to some extent. The foundation have mounted this much resources and stature if he had not allegedly won the seven Tour de France and transcended cancer? Likely not.
Despite this, in a display of virtue signalling, to flaunt its environmental credentials (and to boost prices for its other coal fired plants), last March the French government part owned multinational, Engie, closed down the giant Hazelwood coal fired station that had supplied a quarter of Victoria power.The Australian Energy Market Operator is now sufficiently alarmed to have just issued an official warning of further blackouts this summer in Victoria and South Australia and severe medium term power shortfalls. But in yet more virtue signalling, energy giant AGL is still threatening to close the massive Liddell coal fired power station in NSW and replace it with a subsidized solar farm and a much smaller gas fired power station relying on gas supplies that don currently exist.Were it not rational behaviour based on irrational government policy, this deliberate elimination of an essential service could only be described as a form of economic self harm.Renewable energy should properly be referred to as intermittent and unreliable powerHydro aside, renewable energy should properly be referred to as intermittent and unreliable power. When the wind doesn blow and the sun doesn shine, the power doesn flow.
