YESTERDAY-“Haynie Day”

first_imgMayor William Dress (left) sits next to George W. Haynie during “Haynie Day” on May 19, 1937. The location was the Woods Drug Store at the junction of Second Street, Parrett Street, and Adams Avenue. The event celebrated the re-opening of the store, which had been heavily damaged by a major flood earlier in the year. Haynie, who was nicknamed the “Mayor of Goosetown,” operated a pharmacy on the site from 1886 to 1928, when he sold the store to H. A. Woods. Today the area is still known as Haynie’s Corner.FOOTNOTE: We want to thank Patricia Sides, Archivist of Willard Library for contributing this picture that shall increase people’s awareness and appreciation of Evansville’s rich history.

New Year, New Beer

first_imgOne of the greatest trends in craft beer right now is the boom of session IPAs. Picture this: a beer that tastes like one of those hop-bomb IPAs that American craft breweries are known for brewing, but with really low alcohol levels. Like, the same amount of alcohol as those crappy macro lagers we all grew up drinking.  It’s pretty much the sweet spot, because you get the flavor of craft beer married with the drinkability of say, a Bud Light.Within the last couple of years, every brewery has thrown a session IPA into the market. And I mean every brewery. Oskar Blues is now officially in the session IPA game with a brand new beer called Pinner, which is loaded with a handful of different varieties of hops, but comes in at a low, low 4.9% ABV. They call it a “throwback” IPA because, you know, you can throw them back one after the other.It has that citrus nose you’d expect from an IPA, and plenty of grapefruit and zest in the sip. It doesn’t have the malty backbone that most IPAs have, and that’s something I’ve noticed from a lot of session IPAs across the board. They’ve got the hops down, and the citrus aspect, and they’re dank in a certain way, but they’re not terribly complex.Of course, that’s just comparing this new breed of session IPAs to their full-bodied IPA counterpart. Pit these session IPAs against most lagers or pilsners or even pale ales that have similarly low ABVs, and they shine like the North Star. And Pinner definitely shines. It’s a beer I could throwback over and over again. Long live the session IPA.– Graham Averill is a contributor to B.R.O. and runs his own blog about being a stay-at-home dad called Daddy Drinks.last_img read more

Bronze medal delight for England’s senior women

first_img4 Sep 2013 Bronze medal delight for England’s senior women England beat the Netherlands 4-1 today to win the bronze medal at the European senior ladies’ team championship at Bled, Slovenia. The team shrugged off the disappointment of their semi-final defeat with an excellent performance and they dominated the bronze-medal play-off. “They were magnificent and they are really chuffed,” said team captain Pat West. “They came out fighting and pretty much led from the front all the way.” By the time the first three groups had passed through the 14th with England three up in each, the writing was on the wall. And, although one singles match was lost, the medal was comfortably secured. The cahnmpionship was won by Ireland, who beat Italy in the final. Caption: The England team pictured at the prize ceremony (from left): Cath Rawthore, Amanda Mayne, Chris Quinn, Janet Melville, Pat West (captain), Sue Dye and Caroline Berry.

They will play the Netherlands tomorrow for the bronze medal, while Ireland and Italy battle it out for the gold at Bled, Slovenia. “Obviously it’s disappointing, but we are just going to have to get up and win the bronze,” said team captain Pat West. “There’s all to play for.” English senior stroke play champion Sue Dye won her match and senior amateur champion Janet Melville halved – while the three other games ended in Italy’s favour, but agonisingly close. “We lost three on the 18th, but there was some fantastic golf played,” said Pat. “It was a very high standard match on both sides.” The foursomes pairing of Caroline Berry and Amanda Mayne were one down playing the last and their opponents hung on to their advantage. Exactly the same fate befell Chris Quinn in the top singles, while Cath Rawthore, who was all square on the tee, lost the hole when her opponent slotted in a 10-footer.

They play Italy tomorrow, while the Netherlands take on Ireland in the other half of the draw. Team captain Pat West was quick to heap praise on her players: “It was a brilliant result, absolutely superb,” she said. “I am very proud of them, their determination was fantastic.” The team’s foursomes pairing of Caroline Berry and Amanda Mayne were on fine form and after getting to three up at the turn stayed in charge to win their game 3/2. Chris Quinn (image copyright Leaderboard Photography), however, had to pull off a remarkable fightback to secure her point. She was five down at the turn but, with the aid of some birdie golf, pegged back her opponent and emerged as the 2 up winner on the 18th. “She was just magnificent,” said Pat. Cath Rawthore – who is making her international debut – came through a close match, winning the 15th and 16th to get to 2up, before halving the 17th. Behind her, Sue Dye lost, but Janet Melville, who had been three down after nine, got back to all square.

Their first opponents in the knock out are Germany, who qualified sixth, but were only five shots behind England. “The scoring is very close,” said team captain Pat West. “There isn’t much between any of us and our team have done very well.” English senior stroke play champion Sue Dye provided the highlight today when she holed her second shot for an eagle two on the first hole. She followed up with a birdie on the next and was one-under at the turn, before slipping back on the difficult back nine. The team’s scoring was led by new international, Cath Rawthore, who had rounds of 76, 78 on the par 73 course.   The 36 holes of stroke play qualifying were played over two days in glorious, sunny weather on a course which is both picturesque and tough.

Doherty’s insurance bill ‘on track to become law by Christmas’

first_imgDonegal Deputy Pearse Doherty’s Consumer Insurance Contracts Bill has been passed through all stages of the Seanad this evening.The legislation, which has now passed both houses, would reform insurance contracts, increasing transparency and tilting the balance in favour of the consumer.Deputy Doherty has welcomed the progress made today, which is said to pave the way for the bill to be enacted into law by the end of 2019. He said: “I want to thank Minister D’Arcy for his cooperation in facilitating the passage of this Bill. We are now on track for it to be signed into law by Christmas.“Sinn Féin are in the business of protecting people, not the profits of the insurance industry. This legislation is a big win for consumers as Sinn Féin continue to stand up for workers and families.”Explaining the details of the bill, Deputy Doherty said: “Rip-off insurance costs are squeezing incomes and closing down businesses. People are seeing their premiums go up each year without even making a claim. The insurance market isn’t working for policyholders and too little has been done to hold the industry to account and reduce costs.“Our Consumer Insurance Contracts Bill will shift the balance in favour of policyholders, by increasing transparency and strengthening the hand of the policyholder during their insurance contract. “My legislation has been described as the most radical change in consumer law in centuries, and as a game-changer by the Alliance for Insurance Reform.“This legislation would require companies to inform consumers of the past 5 years of premiums paid by customers, and claims paid to customers and third parties for all non-life insurance contracts.“Any company that cancels a policy would have to pay the customer the outstanding balance of the premium paid and make it easier for the customer to withdraw from a contract.“It would also require a company to inform customers of any claim made against their policy, allowing them to submit their own evidence and informing them of the cost of any claim against their policy that has been settled.“After last week’s revelations of some, enabled by the legal industry, engaging in fraudulent claims, this provision is crucial. “It would ensure that policyholders would be told of any third party claims made against their policy, fraudulent or otherwise, and have a right to submit evidence concerning the claim.“The legislation would also make it harder for an insurer to wriggle out of paying valid claims on grounds that have nothing to do with the accident or loss incurred by the policyholder.”Doherty’s insurance bill ‘on track to become law by Christmas’ was last modified: December 11th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

#sidibouzid: This Week in Online Tyranny

first_imgMedia missing in action for Tunisian protests, social media takes over. As protests over brutality, repression and economic neglect intensified in Tunisia over the past week, social media users kicked into gear. Traditional media neglected most of the news, including the killing of about 50 civilians by government forces. Social media users, both inside Tunisia and outside, reported news of protests, riots, arrests, government actions and deaths via Twitter and YouTube. The hastag #sidibouzid was omnipresent on the social web. This hashtag was the town where the protests started, in the wake of a suicide by a despondent young man named Mohamed Bouazizi. There was something iconic about it, nearly religious, a rallying cry not just for justice to be done in Tunisia, but as a way of its users assuring themselves that none of them were altogether alone. At about 3:00 p.m. (PST), news arrived – via Twitter, of course – that one of the detainees, and a writer for ReadWriteWeb France, Slim Amamou, had been released, along with another detainee, Azyz Ammami.A number of concessions are said to have come from these electronically-amplified protests. Few to none can be considered to be confirmed. The firing of the Tunisian interior minister, Minister Rafik Belhaj Kacem, for allowing the police to use “excessive force.” (Cute phrase for the deaths of dozens of civilians.)The end of web censorship.The promise by prime minster Mohamed Ghannouchi not to run for election again.The promise the police would not allowed to use live ammunition except in self-defense. (At the time of this writing, reports of live firing on civilians were still coming in.)Li Hong has become second online writer to die in detention. Li Hong’s death in Ningbo, China, was the second, after Omid Reza Mir Sayafi‘s death in Iran on March 18, 2009, involving a blogger in prison. Like Omid, Hong’s death was a direct result of untreated medical conditions. Hong had spent three years in prison where treatment for a degenerative disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, was withheld. Like Omid, Hong was tortured to death over a period of years. Shame, China, SHAME!U.S. government to create “verified ID” for the internet. A largely undefined program to create an “identity ecosystem” for verified online identities has been turned over to the Commerce Department. While some find it vaguely unsettling, others believe it to be a safe and useful idea. Court subpoenas Twitter for user info in Wikileaks case. The document demanded data for half a dozen people associated with Wikileaks and its release of war and diplomatic documents. Twitter pushed back at the subpoena, requesting, and receiving, permission to inform the targets of the inquiry what had been asked of them. Russia moves toward national internet. Former President and current Prime Minister Vladimir Putin recently signed an executive order requiring all Russian governmental organizations and departments to go open source by 2015. Proprietary software – from Microsoft, Google and so on – puts Russia in a state of dependence on a sector that is overwhelmingly American. Russia joins Iran, China and Turkey as nations that have been exploring the possibility of walling off their national internet from the world. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market curt hopkins A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Related Posts Tags:#TWiOT#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more
