For UNLV Golfer, Evaluating the Water Begins With the Majors

Maturing in San Jose, golf enthusiast Shintaro Restriction also was a competitive swimmer. However even the most weekend warrior of golf enthusiasts can tell you that the greens and fairways can drop you right in the deep end, too.

Restriction was a standout recruit in 2014, concerning UNLV on the heels of winning the Junior Golf Association of Northern California’s Gamer of the Year award. However he was foundering with the Rebels. He was barely playing with the group and was left behind for competitions.

“I was pretty homesick and it was hard. I thought, ‘Hey, you’re not taking a trip at all. If you’re going to miss out on home, may too go back home,” Restriction said. “But I came here for a reason.'”

It was an early numeration. Restriction would soon determine ways to balance school and golf, by ensuring he wasn’t up too late that he was tired for practice. He would learn how to focus on the weak points on his video game rather of skating by on the important things he currently succeeded, like hitting long off the tee. By his second term, Ban was an integral member of the team. He would go on to All-America accolades and an area in Rebel record books with an all-time university low of 62 in one competition.

4 years and one economics bachelor’s later on, on June 14, right before 9 a.m. on a clear Long Island early morning, Ban found himself at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. He teed off in between 12-year PGA pro Sung Joon Park and 11-year veteran Tim Wilkinson in the 2018 U.S. Open.

“It didn’t quite sink in until after the preliminary,” Restriction stated. “It was like ‘Wow, I played a round in the United States Open.’ It was the most enjoyable I have actually ever had. To be out there experiencing my first day playing my first expert event, it was certainly something unique.”

Shinnecock, however, was unforgiving. A few of the top players worldwide had a hard time from eviction. Restriction carded an 81 on the first day, rebounded with a 78 in the 2nd round, however signed up with the likes of top-flight pros like Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, and Tiger Woods in missing out on the cut. Previous UNLV golf player and Masters winner Adam Scott also missed out on.

Rickie Fowler, who ended up tied for 20th, shot an 84 in the 3rd round. So at least, if using a course that rough-and-tumble was a lesson, it’s one Restriction shown some of the best golf enthusiasts in the world.

“I’m grateful I got the experience and an excellent, brutal beat-down,” Restriction said.

The experience was different but the lesson was the same as it was in his freshman year: after a huge difficulty on the course, it’s time to put in the work.

So rather of turning professional right after graduation, Ban is staying amateur through the summer season to tweak parts of his video game that he saw were lacking compared to pros at the Open. The Pacific Coast Amateur, where he completed 2 over and tied for 28th, and the United States Amateur Champion at Pebble Beach Aug. 13-19– the competition won by the likes of Bobby Jones, Arnold Palmer, Tiger Woods and previous Rebel Ryan Moore– Restriction expects to be his last as an amateur.

When he does turn pro, UNLV coach Dwaine Knight anticipates Ban to rapidly develop himself as both a player and a character.

“The thing about Shintaro I truly liked was he has a great deal of creativity in a lot of various ways. He loves dancing; he’s an incredible dancer,” Knights stated. “He’s a fun-loving guy besides being a great player. I believe he’s going to have a brilliant future at the next level due to the fact that he’s so imaginative, and people gravitate to him. He’ll endear himself to the fans.”

Delaying the transfer to the pros did have one noteworthy upside for Ban. It suggested he got to play in the Palmer Cup in July, in √Čvian-les-Bains, France, on the shores of Lake Geneva.

The Palmer Cup is the college version of the Ryder Cup, pitting a group of Americans against their European counterparts. The United States squad beat Europe easily, with Ban going 2-1 in his songs matches and 3-1 total.

Doing it as a pro in the Ryder Cup appropriate is still a long ways away. Ban will have to scrap his way to a tour card, itself no mean task. However should he ever discover himself representing the United States once again, Ban will be all set.

“Palmer Cup was potentially among the best weeks of my life,” he said. “I enjoy being around the video game and having so much enjoyable. It made me really miss out on the team vibe. I like playing on a group, where I’m representing something. I like to amuse. It’s one thing that makes me truly delighted about golf– seeing a big gallery, you wish to carry out well in front of them and feel the love.”

Kavanaugh begins Congress trip, offering himself for court


Jose Luis Magana/ AP Vice President Mike Pence, right, accompanied by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, reaches the U.S. Capitol in Washington on Tuesday, July 10, 2018.

Tuesday, July 10, 2018|10:32 a.m.

WASHINGTON– President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, mapped out method with Republican leaders Tuesday, launching a fierce confirmation battle that might remake the court for years and roil the midterm elections in the meantime.

Kavanaugh, a favorite of the GOP facility, first huddled with Senate Bulk Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. He was then consulting with Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, the Judiciary Committee chairman. Joining him were Vice President Mike Pence and former Sen. Jon Kyl, seeking the GOP backing he will need to be confirmed in the divided Senate.

Republicans have reacted positively to Trump’s choice, however McConnell has little margin of mistake in the last vote unless a few Democrats can be brought onboard. Republicans hold a slim 51-49 Senate majority, and pressure is installing on Democrats from states that Trump won in 2016 to cross party lines for assistance.

McConnell called Kavanaugh “one of the most thoughtful jurists” in the country and blasted Democrats as “excited to try and turn judicial verifications into something like political elections.” The GOP leader warned against engaging in “cheap political fear-mongering.”

” We’ll hear all type of great stories about the discomfort and suffering that this perfectly certified, widely respected judge will in some way unleash on America if we verify him to the court,” McConnell stated.

Pence called Kavanaugh a “great male.”

Democrats are unifying behind a strategy to turn the verification fight into a referendum on conservatives’ efforts to undo abortion access and chip away at other health care defenses under the Affordable Care Act.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of New york city is promising to eliminate the election “with whatever I have.”

Schumer cautioned, “In selecting Judge Kavanaugh, President Trump did precisely what he stated he would do on the campaign path– nominate someone who will reverse women’s reproductive rights and strike down healthcare defenses for millions of Americans.”

Trump selected Kavanaugh, a sturdily conservative, politically linked judge, as he seeks to move the country’s highest court ever even more to the right.

A product of the Republican legal establishment in Washington, Kavanaugh, 53, is a former law clerk for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Like Trump’s very first candidate in 2015, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who might assist remake the court for decades with rulings that might restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back crucial parts of” Obamacare.”

In a prime-time televised statement Trump called Kavanaugh “one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time.”

” Brett Kavanaugh has actually gotten rave evaluations– rave reviews– in fact, from both sides,” Trump stated Tuesday as he left the White Home for a weeklong overseas journey. “And I think it’s going to be a stunning thing to monitor the next month.”

With Kavanaugh, Trump is replacing a swing vote on the nine-member court with a strong conservative. Kavanaugh, who serves on the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, has taken an extensive view of executive power and has actually favored limitations on examining the president.

Speaking at the White Home, Kavanaugh promised to protect the Constitution and said that “a judge needs to be independent and should translate the law, not make the law.”

Some conservatives have expressed issues about Kavanaugh, questioning his dedication to social problems like abortion and noting his time serving under President George W. Bush as evidence he is a more facility option.

Some conservative and libertarian-leaning activists were disappointed by the pick and doubted it would provide Republicans with the midterm election increase they are trying to find to inspire voters to the polls.

” This is going to offer heartburn to some conservatives,” stated Brian Darling, a former Republican counsel to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky.

” It’s not the pick conservatives had hoped for,” Beloved stated.

Paul was among some Republican senators who had actually preferred other alternatives. However the senator tweeted after the announcement that he anticipated conference Kavanaugh “with an open mind.”

With Democrats figured out to strongly oppose Trump’s choice, the Senate verification fight is anticipated to dominate the months preceeding November’s midterm elections. It normally takes about two months to validate a justice.

Democrats have turned their attention to pressuring two Republicans, Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. The two have supported access to abortion services.

Kavanaugh is likely to be more conservative than Justice Kennedy on a range of social concerns. At the top of that list is abortion. A more conservative bulk might be more going to maintain state limitations on abortion, if not overturn the 45-year-old landmark Roe v. Wade decision that established a woman’s constitutional right.

Like the other 8 justices on the court, Kavanaugh has an Ivy League law degree, investing his undergraduate and law academic year at Yale. Considering that 2006, he has been a judge on the federal appeals court in Washington. He also was a crucial aide to Kenneth Starr during Starr’s investigation of President Costs Clinton, worked on behalf of George W. Bush’s campaign throughout the election recount in 2000 and served in the Bush White House.

Kavanaugh’s lots of written opinions supply insight into his thinking and also will be fodder for Senate Democrats who will seek to obstruct his verification. He has written approximately 300 viewpoints as a judge, authored numerous law journal posts, frequently taught law school classes and spoken frequently in public.

Kavanaugh’s views on presidential power and abortion are anticipated to draw specific attention. Drawing on his experience in the Clinton investigation and after that in the Bush White House, he wrote in a 2009 law evaluation short article that he favored excusing presidents from dealing with both civil matches and criminal investigations, including indictment, while in workplace. That view has specific importance as unique counsel Robert Mueller is looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and whether the Trump project played any function in a foreign interference plot.

Trial begins in civil case concentrated on David Copperfield program


Evan Agostini/Invision/ AP In this Nov. 6, 2017, file photo, magician David Copperfield participates in the 14th Yearly CFDA Style Fund Gala in New York.

Friday, April 13, 2018|9:55 p.m.

LAS VEGAS– The tricks behind a vanishing act that magician David Copperfield performed for many years in Las Vegas were exposed in court Friday, the very first day of trial in a civil case brought by a British traveler who claims he slipped, fell and was injured after he was randomly chosen from the audience to participate in the program.

Attorneys for traveler Gavin Cox, Copperfield, the MGM Grand casino-resort, which hosts the program, and others detailed the route that arbitrarily picked audience members follow during the technique in which Copperfield supposedly makes them vanish from a platform on phase and gets them to reappear in the back of the theater.

Cox was injured along the path in a 2013 show.

Lawyer Benedict Morelli, who represents Cox and his other half, told the jury during opening statements that the illusion called the Thirteen was “a mishap waiting to occur” and “obviously dangerous.” He included that his customer was never alerted about a possible injury if he took part in the illusion.

” Rather the contrary, he and possibly all the other individuals had an expectation of safety,” Morelli stated. “So, Mr. Cox (stated) ‘OK. I guess I’m going to be OKAY. Why would David Copperfield, who is so well-known, choose me and not secure me?'”

Cox filed the claim in 2014 months after he was randomly picked to participate in the final technique of Copperfield’s show on Nov. 12, 2013.

Attorneys on Friday explained how Cox rested on a platform on stage and later on followed a path that took him through hallways and an outdoor area near a door that would have led him back inside. But it was at that point when he hit the floor.

Morelli argued that the audience doesn’t get to see the “mayhem” going on behind the scenes, where people are hurried. He said a confluence of events triggered his customer to fall and be injured– running in a dark location, following an unidentified path, encountering an unidentified incline, and dust and debris due to building and construction in the location.

MGM Grand’s lawyer Jerry Popovich told the jury that Cox just missed a step when he fell and did not slip. He explained that the website where the accident occurred, about 22 feet prior to reaching the door to re-enter the gambling establishment, is basically level with just a 1-degree drop.

Popovich said that 10 minutes before Cox decreased, Copperfield had actually walked through that exact same area as part of another illusion that did not involve audience participation. He said Copperfield would have notified personnel if he had actually observed any issue in the route.

” Mr. Cox did not slip, he tripped,” Popovich stated.

Cox in his lawsuit argues he has actually invested more than $400,000 on medical care and treatment. He, his other half and children were in the courtroom. So was Copperfield.

The attorneys for Copperfield and MGM Grand sought to keep opening declarations, closing arguments and other parts of the trial where the details of the magician’s illusions were gone over near the general public and the media.

They argued that those are considered trade secrets, however Cox’s lawyer argued individuals other than Copperfield, including previous audience participants, understand what is associated with carrying out the technique.

The judge agreed the complainants.

GOP blame-game begins after Senate sinks health care drive


Cliff Owen/ AP Sen. John McCain, R-Az., front left, is pursued by press reporters after casting a ‘no’ vote on a measure to repeal parts of previous President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Friday, July 28, 2017.

Friday, July 28, 2017|8:50 a.m.

WASHINGTON– Republican finger-pointing commenced Friday after the Senate’s dark-of-night defeat of the GOP’s effort to reverse much of the Obama healthcare law, a stunning vote that dealt a blow to President Donald Trump.

“3 Republicans and 48 Democrats let the American people down,” Trump tweeted early Friday after GOP leaders cannot patch celebration departments and the Senate rejected a last-ditch bill to keep the effort alive. “As I said from the beginning, let ObamaCare implode, then deal. View!”

The “slim repeal” expense– eliminating a number of parts of President Barack Obama’s law– was rejected just before 2 a.m. EST on a vote of 51-49.

All Democrats were joined by GOP Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and the ailing John McCain. The 80-year-old Arizona senator made a dramatic return to the Capitol Tuesday after being detected with brain cancer to cast a decisive procedural vote that for a time had advanced the legislation.

Following rejection of 2 more comprehensive GOP repeal strategies earlier in the week, the early Friday vote cast doubt on whether divided Senate Republicans can advance any health costs regardless of 7 years of guarantees to repeal “Obamacare.”

Home leaders had no hesitation about blaming the Senate for the collapse of one of the GOP’s vital priorities. In a declaration, Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., pointedly stated “the House provided a bill” and stated he was “disappointed and frustrated.” Almost 3 months previously, the House authorized its healthcare bundle after numerous humiliating setbacks.

He included, “However we need to not quit. I motivate the Senate to continue working toward a genuine solution that keeps our guarantee.”

Highlighting your house’s view of where the fault lie, leaders opened an early morning conference of the chamber’s GOP lawmakers by playing audio of Gordon Lightfoot’s “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald,” which recounts the 1975 wreck of a truck in Lake Superior. Numerous lawmakers said House deputy whip Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., told them the song was meant as a reference to the Senate.

One moderate Republican stated Trump shared duty for the expense’s breakdown. “Among the failures was the president never set out a strategy or his core principles and never ever sold them to the American individuals,” said Rep. Charlie Damage, R-Pa. “Outsourced the entire concern to Congress.”

The measure defeated Friday would have repealed an Obama mandate that many people get medical insurance and would have suspended a requirement that bigger business offer coverage to their employees. It would have also suspended a tax on medical gadgets and denied federal payments to Planned Parenthood for a year.

“This is clearly a frustrating moment,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, said. “I are sorry for that our efforts were insufficient this time.”

“It’s time to proceed,” he stated. McConnell put the health costs on hold and announced that the Senate would move onto other legislation next week.

Conservative Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., who’s running for an uninhabited Senate seat, recommended it was time for McConnell to relinquish his post.

“If they’re going to quit, well then by golly, perhaps they ought to start on top with Mitch McConnell leaving his position and letting someone new, somebody strong, somebody conservative take the reins,” Brooks stated on CNN. He included, “How is he getting the job done on the rest of President Trump’s program?”

On Twitter, McCain said the repeal bill “fell short of our guarantee to repeal & & replace Obamacare w/ significant reform.”

The change was a last resort for Senate Republicans to pass something– anything– to trigger settlements with your house.

“I hope this is a turning point,” Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York, said Friday.

Health and Person Provider Secretary Tom Cost stated in a statement that the Trump administration would pursue its healthcare objectives through guideline. “This effort will continue,” Price stated. But insurance providers, healthcare facilities, medical professionals, and consumer groups are pushing the administration to guarantee billions of dollars in contested aids to assist support insurance markets around the nation.

Buoyed by a signal from Ryan, McConnell had actually presented a pared-down health care costs late Thursday that he hoped would keep alive Republican aspirations to repeal “Obamacare.”

The Congressional Budget Workplace stated the procedure would have increased the number of uninsured individuals by 16 million, the very same issue that vexed all the “repeal and replace” procedures Republicans have used. Obama’s law extended protection to some 20 million individuals, minimizing the country’s uninsured rate to a historic low of around 9 percent.

Still, Ryan had apparently opened a path for McConnell earlier Thursday by signifying a desire to negotiate a more detailed expense with the Senate. Some Republican senators had been worried that your home would merely pass McConnell’s “skinny costs” and send it to Trump. That would have sent out a shock wave through medical insurance markets, surging premiums.

Ryan sent senators a statement saying that if “moving forward” needs talks with the Senate, the House would be “willing” to do so. While Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., ultimately said he was assured by Ryan’s statement, McCain stayed skeptical.

“Not enough,” McCain stated.

Numerous surveys had shown little public support for the GOP’s earlier proposals to rescind and change Obama’s law. A recent AP-NORC survey found only 22 percent of the public backing the Republican approach, while 51 percent were opposed.

Associated Press authors Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, Stephen Ohlemacher and Kevin Freking added to this report.

Tesla begins building on massive plant’s interior


Scott Sonner/ AP

Mustangs graze Thursday, June 24, 2015, on the open variety at the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center about 15 miles east of Sparks, along Interstate 80 near where Tesla Motors is building a $5 billion gigafactory expected to eventually utilize 6,500 workers.

Friday, Oct. 9, 2015|2 a.m.

Tesla is turning its focus on interior jobs at its Northern Nevada battery manufacturing plant, as it begins construction on an internal data center, first-phase roof repair, and flooring, according to 3 months of permits submitted in Storey County, where the factory is located.

The county recently issued a temporary certificate of occupancy for a little portion of the plant, referred to as the Gigafactory, to permit Tesla employees to do work within. The certificate leads the way for the company to prepare production in a part of the factory center, as it remains to develop the rest of a plant that will eventually extend a minimum of 5.5 million square feet and cost around $5 billion.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said that the business could be making cells by 2016, putting it on an accelerated timeline. The company’s site originally forecasted cell production to start in 2017 and for the factory to reach its full capacity by 2020.

The Storey County permits suggest much of the brand-new building will certainly be finished early next year.

The phase-one roof repair, anticipated to cost $4.5 million, is arranged for conclusion in mid-February. Preliminary electrical infrastructure, expected to cost $300,000, has the exact same February conclusion date, according to the Storey County permits. A nearly $13 million task to build flooring has an approximated completion date of later on that month. And $10 million in architectural interiors are also anticipated to be finished early in February. Building on the majority of the interior tasks began in September, the Storey County permits show.

While Tesla is understood for manufacturing premium electric cars, the Gigafactory belongs of Tesla’s efforts to produce a lower-cost item. The Gigafactory is anticipated to produce low-priced batteries for a mass-market car that Tesla hopes to cost at about $35,000.

“We have not yet got that mass-market product,” Tesla Vice President Diarmuid O’Connell stated at UNLV on Wednesday. “What’s going to assist us get to that mass-market item … is going to be the project we’re carrying out outside of Reno at the Gigafactory.”

The lithium-ion battery factory is likewise anticipated to contribute in producing batteries for house energy storage.

Storey County likewise provides Tesla approval to develop an indoor data center at the Gigafactory.
