Tiger Woods posts video to rebut rumors of his demise

first_imgIn this Aug. 23, 2015, file photo, Tiger Woods watches his tee shot on the second hole during the final round of the Wyndham Championship golf tournament at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.  (AP Photo/Chuck Burton, File)PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) _ Tiger Woods posted a video of him swinging a 9-iron in a golf simulator on Wednesday to shoot down rumors on social media that suggested his recovery from back surgeries had worsened to the point he could not even sit in a chair.The 13-second video Woods posted on Twitter shows him dressed in shorts and golf shoes, and he takes a smooth swing on a golf simulator.“Progressing nicely,” Woods wrote.The video (http://bit.ly/1oHi2If ) had a time stamp of Wednesday.If nothing else, it provided the first update on Woods since he spoke at the Hero World Challenge the first week of December. This was intended primarily, however, because of the social media storm that began over the weekend with a Twitter account called “Secret Tour Pro.”Mark Steinberg, Woods’ agent at Excel Sports Management, released a statement Feb. 21 that said the rumors were “ridiculous and absolutely false.”“With everything that went on last weekend with Twitter exploding and the ridiculous and erroneous discussions _ I don’t even want to call it reporting _ we were inundated with fans saying: `Wow. How can this be true?’ Clearly, it wasn’t true,” Steinberg said Wednesday.“If I picked up the phone and called you and said he’s doing some chipping and putting and making some swings up to a 9-iron _ and that’s what the club was _ is that impactful or a visual evidence of that?” he said. “We felt that was a more appropriate way to go.”Woods first had a microdiscectomy a week before the 2014 Masters, which kept him out nearly three months. He took off another three months to get stronger, but then announced another back surgery in September, and a third one at the end of October.He has not played since August. He has not won since August 2013.The tweet Sunday from “Secret Tour Pro” _ who claims to be a tour player, though it has never been verified _ said that Woods’ condition had worsened since Christmas and that he has to ride in a car with the seat full reclined. The tweet also said Woods has to lay down for the majority of the time and sitting in chair is no longer possible.Robert Lusetich, who wrote a book about Woods’ 2009 season after returning from knee surgery, tweeted similar information the next day that he attributed to his sources, and talked about it on a national radio show.Steinberg could not say if Woods would have posted the video without the rumors.“He does want to keep people in the loop to some degree,” he said.Missing from the update was anything beyond “progressing nicely.” Woods said in December that he misses competing and wants to return, though he does not appear to be in any rush this time. He has said he tried to come back too early from the first back surgery.“He’s going to learn from the past,” Steinberg said. “We don’t want to put a timetable on it. He’ll come back when he’s ready.”last_img

All Is Well: Team management and seniors baffled with reports hinting Kohli-Rohit rift

Powered by Firework Team India were handed with a tough pill to swallow after their heart-wrenching defeat against New Zealand. The defeat marked India’s exit from the competition which ultimately resulted in a blame game that has hinted several cracks in the Indian setup.Advertisement Image Courtesy: BCCI/OutlookHowever, the situation is not as bad as it seems with a source claiming the reports of the rifts and alliance formation as “Absolute Nonsense”.Following the defeat, there were reports highlighting the apparent formation of factions within the team with Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli as the leaders on either side. The reports also claimed that the majority of the players were against Ravi Shastri and the rest of the coaching staff.Advertisement “Absolute nonsense is being pedalled, like ‘there’s a rift in the team, there’s trouble brewing’, what not. It’s really uncalled for. Which cricketer wishes away another cricketer? Only one who’s never played the game. The World Cup ended and someone wanted a new headline. It’s disappointing how some people twist and turn things to suit their interests,”The report which was brought out by Times Of India also goes onto claim that several senior players were “miffed” at the emerging rumours about the team.Advertisement Read Also:Cricket: Jimmy Neesham’s childhood coach passed away during Super Over in the World Cup finalFormer Pakistani cricketer Abdul Razzaq makes a statement on having extramarital affairs Advertisementlast_img read more

No headaches for wine lovers

first_imgSouth Africa’s wine industry is one of the most prolific and successful in the world. Exports are up by 35% for the first quarter of 2008, compared with the same period last year. (Image: Hein Von Hörsten, SA Tourism image library) Wine lovers will now be able to enjoy their favourite beverage without worrying about the side-effects.Janine ErasmusUV technology company Surepure, based in Cape Town, has developed a method of wine purification that eliminates the need for use of sulphur in the winemaking process. The sulphur content is one of the main causes of headaches and other undesirable side effects.Former Springbok rugby player Guy Kebble, CEO of Surepure, says that the internationally patented Surepure technology makes it possible for winemakers to reduce or completely omit sulphur in their red and white wine products. The process also eliminates the need for sterile filtration, a technique that removes spoilage organisms from wine – but it can also strip wine of its flavour and attenuate the aroma.“We use ultraviolet (UV) technology to purify liquids, ridding them of harmful microbes so that it is now possible to bottle wines without adding this chemical,” he says. The company claims a world first in the wine industry.Surepure is best known as a developer and supplier of UV purification solutions to the dairy industry to reduce the need for pasteurisation. Now it has adapted its technology for the liquid egg, cheese, juice and wine industries. The company is in the process of establishing overseas distribution channels for its products.A number of respected wineries, among them L’Ormarins, Steenberg and the Stellar Organic Winery in Namaqualand, Northern Cape, have successfully tested the technology on batches of young wine during the recent harvest. Kebble says that winemakers have reacted positively to the new technique – described as “revolutionary” – which has generated much interest in the industry.South Africa is a major producer of wine for the local and international market and the industry could find itself a nose ahead of the rest with this technology, says Johan van Rooyen, CEO of the SA Wine Industry Council. “By being the first country to offer wines af lower sulphur levels to the discerning international wine market could be a massive boost for our reputation as a technologically advanced wine nation.”Using sulphur judiciouslySulphur, in the form of sulphur dioxide or SO2, acts as a preservative in wine by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms such as yeast and bacteria, and by slowing down the oxidation process. Oxidation happens when the wine reacts with oxygen, which alters its colour and odour with the result that the wine becomes darker and dryer.While too much oxidation will ruin a wine, controlled oxidation can add character and complexity and in some cases, such as with certain sherries, is a crucial part of the production and aging processes.In South Africa, legislation states that dry white wine produced after January 1995 may not contain more than 160 mg/l sulphur. Off-dry and sweeter wines may contain up to 200 mg/l while Late Harvests are allowed up to 300 mg/l. The limit for dry red wine is at 150 mg/l. Organic wines still contain sulphur, albeit at very low levels – however, if the level of sulphur is below 10 mg/l, the product may be labelled “no sulphur added”. The shelf life of these wines is necessarily limited.The Surepure technology blasts microorganisms with UV-C light at a wavelength of 254.1 nm (nanometres). This affects their DNA and causes the organisms to become inactive, preventing them from proliferating. The process, says Surepure, is non-thermal, chemical-free, fast and reproducible, and leaves no effect on the wine.Wine lovers who suffer from sulphur intolerance will now be able to once more enjoy a good bottle of red. Says Kebble, “Many people avoid wine altogether because of the sulphur levels in the liquid. The Surepure system has, however, made it possible for wine to be bottled with no added sulphur or at substantially lower sulphur levels of between 20 and 50 parts per million.”Not only does Surepure cut down on the need to add sulphur, bit it also eradicated the Brettanomyces yeast that is typically found in red wines. Brettanomyces at low levels can impart a positive effect on the wine, but has the great potential to spoil the wine. It is therefore seen as a wine spoilage yeast, and its presence in wine is classed as a wine fault.Once the yeast has found its way into a winery it is hard to eradicate, but it is particularly sensitive to SO2, the traditional method of control.Useful linksSurepureSouth African Wine Industry CouncilSouth African wineStellar organic wineryWines of South AfricaWine-of-the-Month ClubSouth Africa tourism – official sitelast_img read more

Playoff: Rising from the Ashes

first_imgA series of resounding victories put India at the top of world cricket. T-20 world champions in 2007, ODI world champions in 2011, No. 1 in Test cricket. There was no summit Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his boys did not scale. And then it went downhill from April 2011. A humiliating defeat in England, an even worse disaster in Australia. Where does Indian cricket go from here, with masters of the game looking like a shadow of their former selves? Two men who helped India win the World Cup for the first time since 1983 know the answer best. One is a bowler with a heart of gold, another is a batsman whose talent is astounding. With them is a former captain of the England cricket team who knows a thing or two about tenacity and the ability to rise from the ashes. Can India do what Australia did after a serious downturn culminating in a 3-1 defeat to England in the Ashes series of 2010-2011? Can Team India revamp itself and return to its winning habit?Speakers: ? Harbhajan Singh, Indian cricketer? Virender Sehwag, Indian cricketer?
