  • Record-Breaking Runner to Appear in Ocean City Half Marathon

    first_imgRecord-holder Dee Dee Urquhart will run in Ocean City on Sunday to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.(Courtesy Leukemia and Lymphoma Society) Dee Dee Urquhart has set out to extend her Guinness Book of World Records for the most half marathons run by a female in a month, and her next race is in Ocean City.Her goal is to raise $3,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) through its Team In Training program, the world’s largest and most successful endurance sports fundraising and training program.Urquhart, who lives in Los Angeles and turns 60 on Oct. 18, will run her 18th half marathon at the Ocean City Half Marathon and 5K on Sunday, Sept. 30, to pad her record-breaking feat. According to the Guinness World Record website, the previous record for most half marathons completed in a month by a female is 13, and was achieved by American Stacey Kozel across nine states from June 4-27, 2018.In 2006, Urquhart walked her first half marathon with Team In Training in memory of her best friend’s daughter, Kimberly, who had passed away three years earlier from cancer. She then went on to be an avid runner and a coach for Team In Training.“As we approach the 15th anniversary of Kimberly’s passing, it feels very apropos that I’m aiming to break the Guinness World Record for most half marathons run in a single month during the course of Blood Cancer Awareness Month,” Urquhart said.The OCNJ Half Marathon traditionally draws a big turnout of runners. (Courtesy City of Ocean City)Since its inception, Team In Training has raised more than $1.5 billion for research and patient support, trained more than 650,000 people and helped LLS invest more than $1 billion to help advance breakthrough cancer treatments. Today’s Team In Training provides teammates a unique opportunity to experience personal discovery and mastery through training and community, while helping to create a world without blood cancer.As the world’s largest non-profit health organization dedicated to finding cures and ensuring access to treatments for all blood cancer patients, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society relies on its flagship fundraising campaigns to generate funds for its mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.To donate to Dee Dee Urquhart, visit her fundraising page: read more

  • Thriller Live Star Haydon Eshun on Seven Years of Singing Like Michael Jackson in the West End

    first_img View Comments Now in its seventh year at the Lyric Theatre, Thriller Live has become a West End mainstay and a focal point for fans of Michael Jackson, who died not long after the show opened in January, 2009. Few get to acknowledge the superstar’s legacy more buoyantly than lead vocalist Haydon Eshun, who is among the performers that rocks out to more than 25 songs each night. A former member of the British boy band Ultimate KAOS, the delightful Eshun spoke to about “Michael-isms,” keeping it fresh and whether he’ll make the move to Motown.How long have you been with Thriller Live?I have! I joined the West End company in September 2009, not long after Michael had died, and the longest I’ve had off since then is two weeks. I actually renewed my contract to take me through to late November of this year. I’ve loved every minute of being here.The Lyric Theatre must be like a second home.In some ways it’s more like a first home since I’m here more than I seem to be at my own home in Camden. Being here six days a week year in and year out, this theater has become my home.And you never get bored?You know, this feels like something I could do forever—singing timeless music in a great production. At this point, I could see myself going away and even coming back. A lot of people from this show say that they do miss it once they leave; I think it will always be close to my heart.What’s your personal feeling about Michael Jackson’s music?There are so many great songs: “Rock with You” and “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’.” But I think my favorite song in the whole show would have to be “Human Nature.” That one is just magical, and it moves me a lot.It sounds like quite a workout!You do lose a lot of weight doing it! I mean, I do still go to the gym, and people there ask me why I’m bothering when I’ve got this in the evening. But I think it just keeps you fit and focused, mentally and physically. There’s a lot of discipline that goes into performing on the West End.Do you feel yourself moving ever closer to Michael Jackson’s style with each passing year?It’s actually difficult in this show not to do his moves, so I do do a lot of “Michael-isms” onstage. I’ve found as the years go on that you tend to adopt his sound and style, especially that voice: he always sang his songs in a great key.I gather this was actually your West End debut.Yes, and who’d have thought that my West End debut would turn out to be a show that I will have been in for seven years! I just got addicted to the music and to being onstage and performing every day.It must be amazing seeing the adoration that Jackson’s legacy continues to elicit.Yes, there are diehard fans out there for Michael who always come and support the show and you really get a feel for that when you sing something especially moving like “Man in the Mirror” or “Human Nature.” Every year we do a tribute to his life on his birthday where we perform at an even greater level, almost as if he were in the building.Have you had any involvement with his siblings?All the brothers have come to see the show, and Tito has been three times now. I actually performed two shows with him last September and we’re hoping to do another two in March.What about your own recording career, given that you were part of a well-known British boyband [Ultimate KAOS} when you were only nine?When I first started Thriller Live, my manager said to me, “You can go into a studio during the day and do the show at night.” But that lasted a week. After eight shows, I just want to stay in bed.Part of you must be asking, “What’s next?”I’d definitely like to get into other shows like a Motown or Dreamgirls or The Lion King. But for now, at least, I’m excited about doing this for one more year and going on from there.I suppose Motown would be the logical sequel of sorts.I actually met with Berry Gordy just to say hello. I know a few people who are going into that show [in London], but I wanted to stick it out one more year with Thriller Live before I embark upon my new journey.last_img read more

  • Rainy year

    first_imgThe highest monthly total from National Weather Service reporting stations was 13.62 inches in Columbus (9.22 inches above normal). The lowest was in Brunswick at 4.02 inches (1.19 inches above normal). Atlanta received 9.10 inches (5.28 inches above normal), Macon 8.98 inches (5.05 inches above normal), Athens 8.87 inches (5.16 inches above normal), Augusta 8.97 inches (5.83 inches above normal), Savannah 10.71 inches (7.90 inches above normal), Valdosta 7.45 inches (3.79 inches above normal) and Alma 7.51 inches (3.84 inches above normal). The highest monthly totals from Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network stations were 16.27 inches in Clay County in southwest Georgia and 13.06 inches in Rabun County in far northeast Georgia. The Georgia Automated Environmental Monitoring system reported 11.79 inches at Tiger in Rabun County, 13.85 inches at Plains in Sumter County and 16.72 inches in Georgetown in Quitman County for the month.Daily record maximum rainfalls occurred Dec. 2 across many areas with the passage of a Gulf of Mexico low. The highest daily record of 3.63 inches was set at Columbus. Record daily rainfalls were also measured at several locations Dec. 13, 14 and 18 in areas associated with warm fronts ahead of lows from the gulf.Augusta, Columbus and Savannah all broke their all-time December precipitation records. Augusta’s Bush Field airport recorded 8.97 inches, beating 8.65 inches set in 1981. Columbus recorded 13.62 inches, beating 9.39 inches set in 1953. Savannah recorded 10.71 inches, beating 9.44 inches set in 2007. In addition, Macon reported its third wettest December ever, falling just short of 10.39 inches set in 1972.Several stations in Georgia set annual rainfall records in 2009, including Columbus with a preliminary annual total of 80.23 inches, washing away the old record of 73.22 inches set in 1964. A final annual report will be issued later this month.Temperatures were cooler than normal, with the exception of coastal cities. No temperature records were set. The monthly average temperature in Atlanta was 42.3 degrees F (3.1 degrees below normal), in Athens 42 degrees (2.8 degrees below normal), in Columbus 46.1 degrees (3 degrees below normal), in Macon 45.9 degrees (1.9 degrees below normal), in Savannah 52 degrees (.6 degree above normal), in Brunswick 54.4 degrees (.2 degree above normal), in Alma 51.3 degrees (2.3 degrees below normal), in Valdosta 51.4 degrees (average) and in Augusta 45.6 degrees (1.3 degrees below normal). Georgians experienced four days of severe weather in December. Four weak tornadoes occurred Dec. 2 in central and southeast Georgia, including one that injured two people in a mobile home in Pierce County. Several other structures were damaged in the storms. Strong winds were reported Dec. 8, causing scattered damage to trees and power lines. Another tornado was reported Dec. 9 in Wayne County, damaging a mobile home and slightly injuring the resident. Strong winds and some funnel clouds were also reported Dec. 14.Rivers were reported to have minor to moderate flooding on several dates. The moderate flooding was mainly confined to the larger rivers below the fall line.The wet month caused problems for farmers trying to harvest hay and other crops. Up to 71 percent of the soils were considered to have surplus moisture. Wheat planting was down by up to 30 percent in some areas due to the inability of farmers to run equipment in the waterlogged fields. Some areas still had up to 25 percent of their cotton to harvest.Though we are only half way through the month, it already looks like January could set some weather records, too. Georgia ended 2009 on a cold, rainy note, setting several records for December across the state, including some annual records. Strong fronts brought severe weather, too.Rainfall was well above normal, according to radar estimates. Many areas south of the fall line from Columbus to Augusta and in the northeast mountains received more than 10 inches of rain. last_img read more

  • Dutch pension consolidators double market share to €9.8bn

    first_imgStapAegon€5.8bn46,000 The Netherlands’ five pension consolidator vehicles doubled their combined assets under management last year to €9.8bn.A survey by IPE’s Dutch sister publication Pensioen Pro has shown that the number of members in the general pension funds (APFs) has increased from 44,000 to 94,000 in total.Aegon’s APF Stap and ASR’s Het Nederlandse Pensioenfonds (Hnpf) in particular experienced rapid growth. The company pension funds of Douwe Egberts (€1.8bn) and Sanoma (€600m) joined Stap during 2018, and the Pensioenfonds Arcadis (€1.1bn) moved to Hnpf.The Centraal Beheer APF welcomed the €1bn company scheme of construction firm Ballast Nedam and the €165m pension fund of chemicals firm Cindu. The APFs attracted new employer business, as well as existing pension funds: Centraal Beheer said 548 employers joined last year, adding 13,000 participants.However, contrary to the previous year’s survey, none of the APFs were in a position to announce new commitments.Recently, the €1.1bn company scheme Randstad said that it had selected an APF, while the €1.5bn pension fund of automobile organisation ANWB also announced its intention to join a general pension fund. Source: Pensioen ProAPFParent company AUM Members  Total Meanwhile, in the UK, a survey by consultancy Hymans Robertson has found that only a quarter of trustees polled (25%) thought that transferring their pension scheme to one of the country’s two commercial consolidator vehicles would improve the security of pension benefits, reports Nick Reeve.The survey of 131 pension scheme trustees found that 35% hadn’t heard of The Pension SuperFund, while 60% hadn’t heard of Clara-Pensions. The two companies emerged last year as independent consolidators for private sector defined benefit (DB) pension schemes. The industry is currently waiting for the government to outline the legislative framework for the new vehicles, although The Pensions Regulator has set out its guidelines and expectations for schemes considering transfers.Alistair Russell-Smith, head of corporate DB at Hymans Robertson, said: “There is clearly a widespread lack of knowledge in the industry about the new players in the commercial consolidation market… [They] could benefit a significant minority of schemes, so it is vital the industry builds and grows its understanding about them. “Even if an employer has previously been reluctant to make significant upfront cash contributions, the ability to get a clean break from their DB scheme at a lower cost than buyout could now be the incentive that drives a significant cash contribution today.“Trustees concerned about the long-term covenant support should also seriously consider this option if the cash is now available. Without fully understanding the options available there is a chance that trustees could miss an opportunity to improve member security.” het Nederlandse PensioenfondsASR€1.4bn14,100 Centraal BeheerAchmea€1.3bn25,000 VoloPGGM€325m3,000 De NationaleNN Group€960m5,900 €9.8bn94,000 The APFs indicated that they were upbeat about their prospects for 2019, with Arnout Korteweg, executive trustee at De Nationale APF, saying that his scheme had received approximately 30 information requests last year.The interested schemes included pension funds with assets exceeding €2bn, he added.Hnpf indicated that an increasing number of larger pension funds were assessing the option of joining an APF.Centraal Beheer APF also reported “many” requests for information and proposals, adding that it expected to announce new entrants soon.However, Korteweg said several pension funds were reluctant to commit themselves because of uncertainty about the future shape of the Dutch pensions system. In addition, consulting their many stakeholders was delaying the decision process.Consolidators ‘yet to reach scale’According to Gerard Frankema, director of Stap, his APF was not operating under cost-covering conditions yet, explaining that the setup of the organisation was based on growth of the number of collective compartments for pension funds.De Nationale’s Korteweg said that up to €5bn of additional assets was needed to reach the APF’s break-even point.The €1.4bn Hnpf indicated that it would need assets under management of up to €7bn in order to cover its costs, while Centraal Beheer could not provide clarity on the issue.Meanwhile, the liquidation of PGGM’s Volo seems to be a matter of time, following the pension provider’s announcement last year that it wanted to discontinue its APF.Currently, Volo has the pension funds for Ortec and Jan Huysman as clients.Eric Goris, Volo’s chairman, said that it was assessing options for transferring its clients to another provider and subsequently liquidating the vehicle.Growth of APFs’ asset base (€m)Chart MakerUK: Trustees lack awareness of new consolidatorslast_img read more

  • Mackenthun tops final race, Larson is Bruns Challenge Cup champ

    first_imgREDWOOD FALLS, Minn. (Aug. 10) – It was the kind of finish fans like to see, but the conclusion of Sunday’s IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature at Redwood Speedway was a tad too close from Dan Mackenthun’s point of view. Mackenthun edged Mike Bruns by all of half a car length to win the third and final race in the Dominick Bruns Memorial Challenge Cup Chase. The victory paid $1,000. Mackenthun drew the pole start and led all 20 circuits. After an early caution, the last 17 laps ran green. “I had a plan going out there,” Mackenthun said. “I drove right around the tires in (turns) one and two and on the high side in three and four.” Rich Gregoire challenged at the onset. Bruns made best use of the bottom line and almost caught Mackenthun at the stripe.“It was a good race for the fans. They like it better when it’s close like that,” Mackenthun said. Dan Veenstra, Jeff McCollum and Gregoire rounded out the top five. Jim Larson clinched the overall Chase championship with his ninth place finish, earning a $1,000 share of the series’ $2,000 point fund while becoming eligible to qualify for the Sunoco Race Fuels Race of Champions at the upcoming IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. Kevin DeBaere repeated as series runner-up and earned $600; Gary Mattison was third and pocketed $400.NASCAR Camping World Truck and Nationwide Series driver Jennifer Jo Cobb is a special guest Sunday at Redwood.IMCA Sunoco Stock Car driver Shaun Bruns and his wife Becky founded the Dominick Bruns Memorial Foundation in 2008 after losing their son to SIDS.The point fund is generated by the sale of T-shirts and racing shirts by the foundation along with contributions from area sponsors.

  • England series in CWI best interests, says Bishop

    first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Well-respected television broadcaster Ian Bishop believes it would be in the best financial interests of Cricket West Indies (CWI) and regional players, to take up the England and Wales Cricket Board’s offer of the three-Test series in the United Kingdom this July.The series was postponed from the original June 4-29 dates because of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, but now seems poised to go ahead under a new set of radical suite of safety proposals aimed at mitigating against the health threat.“I don’t know that the West Indies board can afford to go for prolonged periods with inactivity. I think that would be the death of them financially and by extension the players around the region will suffer greatly, as have most people in this country and around the world,” Bishop told i95FM Radio here.“I know that sports seem like a back burner (issue) to many when so many have been losing their jobs but … sport is not a game. Sport is a job and career as well for all of these players and the people surrounding it.“So if it happens, I think it would be a good thing as long as it happens safely. I don’t want to put anybody’s life at risk.”Reports emerged last week that CWI had identified a 30-man training squad for the tour, though the governing body subsequently clarified this was only to “help with the planning and logistics of flying to the UK” in the event the series was approved.Under ECB proposals, the tour would be played at “bio-secure” facilities like Manchester, Southampton and Leeds which boast hotels on location.Teams would also undergo strict isolation, quarantine and testing protocols, prior to and during the series.Bishop, who played 43 Tests between 1989 and 1998, said he believed both CWI and ECB would only proceed with the tour after getting the best medical advice possible.“First of all, I believe that the cricket boards will be guided by the medical personnel. So for (the tour) to happen, it means they would have had to be clearance from the medical people,” said the 52-year-old.“I speak under the proviso that the medical folk have given it a pass. I am not going to circumvent people’s health for the sake of money.”The UK has been one of the hardest hit regions with 237 000 infections and nearly 34 000 deaths. The outbreak forced the ECB to postpone the start of its domestic season until May 28.Bishop said it was important cricket officials understood the fluid nature of the pandemic and made the requisite adjustments.“Nobody in the world had suspected this scenario with the pandemic to happen, no one seems to have the answers, not even the medical people whose views and discoveries are changing from month to month,” the Trinidadian pointed out.“They are learning and we are learning as cricket people to understand the landscape and there is going to be a lot of change so I think we have to accept that we can’t put anything in concrete.“Nothing from here on will be as we conceive to be normal so we’re going to have to roll with the punches and really hope we get a better understanding as we go from week to week.”last_img read more

  • No. 5 men’s tennis splits weekend series

    first_imgA road trip to the Bay Area this weekend yielded a win over No. 27 Cal and an upset loss to No. 36 Stanford for the No. 5 USC men’s tennis team.The Trojans topped the Bears, 4-2, on April 10. The Trojan duo of senior Eric Johnson and sophomore Conner Farren and the pair of junior Max de Vroome and freshman Thibault Forget both fell by scores of 6-3 as the Bears took the doubles point to open the day. In singles, Cal’s Andre Goransson upset senior Yannick Hanfmann 6-4, 6-1 to put the Bears up 2-0.The Trojans, however, rallied to claim the next four points and the match. Senior Jonny Wang topped Bears’ Oskar Wikberg 6-4, 6-1, de Vroome overcame Cal’s J.T. Nishimura’s 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, and senior Roberto Quiroz defeated Filip Bergevi 3-6, 6-3, 6-3. Sophomore Nick Crystal closed the day out for the Trojans with a 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 victory over the Bears’ Mads Engsted.After next heading to Palo Alto, the Trojans were edged out by Stanford 4-3 on April 11. Against the Cardinal, USC struggled once again in doubles play. De Vroome and Forget fell 6-3 to Stanford’s Nolan Paige and David Wilczynski. Johnson and Wang next dropped their match 6-2 to the Cardinal pair of Tom Fawcett and Maciek Romanowicz, giving the Cardinal the doubles point.In singles, De Vroome put the Trojans back on terms 1-1 with a 6-4, 6-4 win against Paige. Next, Stanford’s David Hsu beat Crystal 6-3, 6-4 to put the Cardinal back up, but Wang defeated the Cardinal’s Robert Stineman 2-6, 6-2, 6-2 to bring the match even at 2-2. Fawcett defeated Hanfmann 4-6, 6-2, 6-4, but Johnson topped Wilczynski 6-3, 3-6, 6-4 to bring the result down to the final match. Stanford’s John Morrissey upset senior Roberto Quiroz 6-7 (5), 7-6 (2), 6-3, to clinch the win for the Cardinal.Now 19-4 overall, the Trojans will head across town to face UCLA for their final match of the regular season this Thursday, before taking part in the Pac-12 Championships next week.last_img read more
