A moment of celebration quickly turned into heartbreak for a Baton Rouge, Louisiana-area couple who were vacationing in Tanzania.Kenesha Antoine says her boyfriend, Steven Weber, died while trying to propose to her as he was underwater at a beach.According to Antoine, they were vacationing at a cabin with a submerged bedroom that including windows looking out into the water.In a video shared by Antoine, Weber can be seen swimming up to the glass to show Antoine handwritten messages which turned out to be a marriage proposal. Toward the end of the video, Weber pulls out a ring and Antoine yells, “yes!” Weber then swims out of frame, but his girlfriend says he did not return to the surface.Antoine’s Facebook post says, “Yes, we were, my perfect love, my angel, my soul. Yes, we were, and I will carry the blessing of the love we shared with me forever. I will find you and marry you in the next lifetime, and the next, and the next, and the next… I love you so much, and I always will.” The Department of State confirmed on Friday that a U.S. tourist had died in Tanzania, but did not provide other details.
There are further water disruptions to the town of Falcarragh and Gortahork again this morning.Another burst water pipe in the ailing system means that businesses and householders will be without water until at least this afternoon.The entire water system locally is due to be upgraded by Irish Water in September. However, retailers and locals now face a summer of water disruptions because of the ageing pipe network.Earlier this month, Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig, speaking to Donegal Daily, called for a clear plan to be laid out for the local council.“This approach – a little here and a little there – is no good. We know the extent of the amount of work that needs to be done. Irish Water should make the public in the Glenties Electoral Area aware of the next 10-year plan. We need to know what needs to be done, how much it’s going to cost and when it’s going to be done,” he said.Further disruption as water off again in Falcarragh and Gortahork was last modified: July 17th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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)

2Peter ThomsonAUS5683.3 Koepka is in extremely rare — and international — companyFor men’s golfers with at least 3 major championships since the PGA Tour was founded in 1929, share of total PGA Tour wins that were majors 5Seve BallesterosESP5955.6 10Jordan SpiethUSA31127.3 When Brooks Koepka outdueled Tiger Woods (and Adam Scott) to win the PGA Championship Sunday afternoon, he joined an exclusive group of golfers with three career major championships to their name. In all of golf history, going back even past the days of Tom Morrises both young and old, only 46 players have ever won three majors. Fewer still have won three in the span of 14 months the way Koepka has, having captured the 2017 and 2018 U.S. Opens on top of his win at Bellerive Country Club this weekend. Koepka may still have trouble getting recognized by the general public, but he is getting plenty of recognition in golf’s history books.One weird thing about Koepka, though, is that he hasn’t really done much winning outside of golf’s most prestigious events. Other than that pair of U.S. Opens and this recent PGA Championship win, the only official PGA Tour event Koepka has won was the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open. You don’t have to win a ton of events to make a good living in golf, of course. Koepka has done plenty well for himself, earning nearly $20 million in official money and ranking among the top 20 in FedEx Cup points for four years running. But it’s still striking how much of his success has been concentrated in major championships.Since the PGA Tour was founded, only two golfers with at least three career major wins — Henry Cotton and Peter Thomson — have had a greater share of their total career PGA Tour wins come in majors than Koepka’s 75 percent mark: 3Brooks KoepkaUSA3475.0 9Rory McIlroyNIR41428.6 10Payne StewartUSA31127.3 * Cotton’s victories were from an era before the PGA European Tour was founded, but were all at events located in Europe.Source: Wikipedia, PGA Tour 7Gary PlayerZAF92437.5 8Larry NelsonUSA31030.0 1Henry Cotton*ENG33100.0% RankPlayerCountryMajor WinsPGA Tour WinsMajors as Share of Wins 4Nick FaldoENG6966.7 6Pádraig HarringtonIRL3650.0 It’s no coincidence that the leaderboard above is littered with foreign-born players who didn’t regularly play on the PGA Tour. For instance, Thomson, an Aussie, won an impressive 84 professional tournaments in his career, but almost all of them were in Europe, Oceania or Asia. Particularly in the early days of pro golf, great non-American players seldom came over to the States to ply their trade, so this metric is a bit skewed for them. That’s why Koepka stands out as the only American remotely close to the top of our list; the next-highest is Larry Nelson at just 30 percent.One reason for Koepka’s odd ratio: His path to greatness contained detours. It included a stint on the second-tier European Challenge Tour out of college — where Koepka won a lot, enough to gain automatic promotion to the main tour within roughly a calendar year. Once there, he remained a card-carrying member of the European Tour through the end of the 2015 season. Since he didn’t play a full season of PGA Tour events until three years ago, he hasn’t had quite as much time to pile up wins in America as we’d expect just from eyeballing the span of his pro career.Still, Koepka owns one of the oddest — and most enviable — major records of any golfer ever. The way he’s playing, he’ll probably rack up ordinary PGA Tour wins before too long, but for now he has saved almost all of his winning for the tournaments that matter most.
The Ohio State men’s volleyball team struggled to find its footing against some of the nation’s elite teams, which gathered at the Outrigger Invitational in Honolulu this past weekend. While OSU improved to 2-0 on the season with a 3-2 win against host the University of Hawaii Warriors Thursday, the Buckeyes (2-2) dropped back-to-back showdowns against No. 7 Penn State and No. 5 UCLA. Against the Nittany Lions, OSU was swept 3-0 (24-26, 17-25, 22-25) Saturday as an evenly-matched first set was not enough in the end for the Buckeyes, which failed to take advantage of leads throughout the match. But in their contest with the Bruins, victory seemed to be within reach for OSU. During the deciding fifth set, the Buckeyes led multiple times, including a 12-9 advantage that left three points away from pulling off the upset. UCLA, though, stormed back, winning six of the next seven points, and handed OSU its first defeat of the year, 3-2 (25-17, 22-25, 25-18, 18-25, 13-15). The Buckeyes had better luck against the unranked Warriors, which took OSU to five sets before finally conceding the match, 3-2 (22-25, 25-23, 20-25, 25-17, 15-12). Redshirt sophomores setter Peter Heinen and opposite Andrew Lutz and sophomore outside hitter Michael Henchy led the charge against Hawaii to help put the team at 2-0 on the season heading into the top 10 matchups that stood ahead for the Buckeyes. Next weekend the Buckeyes will look to stop its current losing streak when they travel to Loretto, Pa. to take on Saint Francis (PA) at 3 p.m. in a rematch of the first game of the season, a 3-0 victory for OSU.

Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorA year ago at this time, no players had signed letters of intent to play football for Ohio State. But this year, the first in which the Early Signing Period was introduced, the Buckeyes inked the signatures of 21 players in its 2018 recruiting class, which, despite recent key decommitments, is currently ranked No. 1 by 247Sports.Wednesday morning, just a few hours after Ohio State received its first letter of intent — which came from four-star linebacker Teradja Mitchell — head coach Urban Meyer spoke to the media about the latest recruiting class. Here are four takeaways from the press conference.Update on Micah ParsonsFive-star defensive end Micah Parsons signed a letter of intent with Penn State Monday morning after a tumultuous recruiting cycle that included a decommitment from the Nittany Lions. A couple months ago, Ohio State looked like a favorite to land his commitment, but the Buckeyes interest faded for an unknown reason as time passed.On Tuesday, The Lantern reported Ohio State self-reported NCAA violations stemming from the Parsons family’s visit to the set of College GameDay. The university self-imposed punishments, which included an agreement to end the recruitment of Parsons, who the program deemed ineligible. “Everybody in our program should know the rules, and that shouldn’t have happened,” Meyer said. “It’s presented to me, and I agree with it or disagree with it, and we move on.”Even if a violation sounds minor, Meyer said he does not believe it to be minor.“I get extremely upset when I see that there was something done that was done incorrectly, and we do everything we possibly can to make sure that does not happen again,” he said. Meyer declined to comment on whether the violation was the reason Ohio State ended its recruitment of Parsons.Ohio State found its quarterback. Eventually. Since July 29, 2016, Ohio State held a commitment from Emory Jones, the fourth-ranked dual-threat quarterback, according to 247Sports composite rankings. But on Early Signing Day, he flipped to Florida and signed with the Gators. The Buckeyes, though, were prepared for what seemed like the inevitable after Jones took visits to Florida, Florida State and Alabama as Wednesday’s signing day neared. On Dec. 7, Ohio State received a pledge from three-star quarterback Matthew Baldwin, a former Colorado State commit.Baldwin, a first-year starter at Lake Travis High School in Texas, was brought to the attention of Meyer by quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day.“We’re sitting there getting ready to play Penn State, and he’s coming up to me saying, ‘Hey, let’s watch this kid from Lake Travis,’” Meyer said. “And I’m ready to pass out, saying it’s 10:30 at night, I’ve got 3rd down and 6 in my mind and we’re trying to watch another quarterback.”Meyer went to watch Baldwin practice and liked what he saw. The head coach said he evaluates five traits in quarterbacks: competitive spirit, toughness, leadership, intelligence and the ability to get out of a bad play.“I think you see so many mistakes made at that position because people don’t categorize like that, and he checks the box off perfectly going right down the list,” Meyer said.Jeremy Ruckert: best tight end prospect Meyer has seen?Since Meyer arrived in Columbus in 2012, Ohio State has coached tight ends Jeff Heuerman and Nick Vannett, both future third-round picks in the NFL draft, and landed commitments from four-star tight ends such as Marcus Baugh, Jake Hausmann and Luke Farrell.But he thinks four-star tight end Jeremy Ruckert is different.“I think Jeremy Ruckert might be the best tight end prospect that I’ve ever seen and recruited,” Meyer said. “His skill set is ridiculous. Now it’s a question of getting him ready to play.”Ruckert, the top-ranked player from his home state of New York, is the best tight end and the No. 29 overall player in the nation, according to the 247 composite rankings. Given his athleticism, the 6-foot-6, 240-pound physical specimen could be viewed as more of a receiver at times. He will offer Ohio State a receiving threat from the tight end position to which the program has not been accustomed. Baugh, the Buckeyes’ starting tight end, ranks fourth on the team with 24 catches this year. Next season, Ruckert will compete with Hausmann, Farrell and redshirt sophomore Rashod Berry for the starting tight end position following Baugh’s departure.Late addition of Alex WilliamsAs Ohio State’s recruiting strategy has a more national focus, the Buckeyes have moved away from in-state recruiting. But on Wednesday, Ohio State flipped Pickerington, Ohio, product Alex Williams from West Virginia to the Scarlet and Gray.The three-star athlete who plays for Pickerington North is ranked the 589th-best player in the country and the No. 26 player in Ohio by the 247Sports composite rankings. He is listed as a defensive end by recruiting services, but Meyer said he intends to try him at both tight end and defensive end.“Big athlete,” Meyer said. “I think he can do either. I know where — there’s needs at both spots, but I don’t know.”Meyer said his decision to pursue Williams was partially due to his desire for more players from Ohio. He and the recruiting staff often look for in-state late bloomers because he does not feel like the team has enough Ohioans.“I started watching him, and he’s a late developer player that I think he was hurt some of his junior year, and I like the fact he plays extremely hard and he’s a big athlete.”
World Cup is just a few days away and England coach Gareth Southgate is facing far “more difficult” decisions for England’s World Cup opener as players impress even more.Preparation for Russia has been as smooth as it has been impressive in recent weeks, with comfortable warm-up victories complementing fine work on the training field and increasing team spirit away from it. Southgate’s side honed their skills at a sold-out Elland Road on Thursday evening as they followed the win against Nigeria by beating Costa Rica in a manner more stirring than the 2-0 scoreline suggests.Marcus Rashford and Danny Welbeck secured victory from another injury-free evening, giving the England manager a welcome selection headache ahead of the Group G opener against Tunisia on June 18.“It’s more difficult,” Southgate said, according to Sport.“No question. There’s some serious decisions to take – but in a good way.“If I was sitting here thinking ‘blimey, we have got nobody to play there and nobody to play there’ then it would be a very different situation.“We asked the players to give us competition for places. I can’t start complaining when they do.”Southgate explains why he started Jadon Sancho Taimoor Khan – September 11, 2019 Jadon Sancho was given a start ahead of Marcus Rashford in England’s win over Kosovo and the manager explained why he went down that…Man-of-the-match Rashford shone brightest in Thursday’s audition, scoring an exceptional opener and playing with confidence at a buoyant Elland Road.England are still excited about yesterday’s match and we know this from their recent tweet.

English Championship club Aston Villa announced on Friday it will receive a “significant investment” from NSWE, a company jointly owned by billionaires Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens.Forbes estimation of Egyptian Sawiris worth is over £3 billion, while American Edens is the co-owner of NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks.Also, Villa owner Dr. Tony Xia held talks with the Egyptian group and continue to be on the board as co-chairman.“I am extremely pleased to have formed a strategic partnership with Nassef and Wes,” Dr Xia said in a club statement.Aston Villa explains why they spent so much money on players Manuel R.

In finding such strong partners as Nassef and Wes we’re gearing up to fight again and bring back the success that this Club deserves and we all so want to provide it with.”Aston Villa has been in a financial quagmire for quite some time now, a financial trouble that almost put the club up sale last month.
