Yorkshire’s Richardson is the champion captain

first_img Yorkshire’s Alan Richardson is England’s champion captain – claiming the title for the second time, just two years after his first triumph.Richardson, from Scarborough North Cliff, scored 74 points in the 36-hole final of the English Golf Captains’ tournament series at Frilford Heath in Oxfordshire.“I’m absolutely chuffed, over the moon,” said Richardson, who won his first title at Burhill in 2014.He was three points clear of halfway leader Andy Vernon (Stapleford Park), while Chris Wise (Holtye) and Martin Tate (Blackburn) shared third place with 68 points.The championship was played as part of England Golf Week, which brings over 500 competitors to Frilford Heath to take part in a series of finals during the five-day celebration of handicap golf.Richardson was club captain in 2001 and has been a regular in England Golf Captains’ tournaments since then – alongside a large number of other Scarborough North Cliff past captains. “When we went to Southport & Ainsdale for the qualifier there were 10 captains from our club,” he said.“We love it. It’s great value for money, even if you don’t win, and it’s really well organised,” he went on. “The nice thing with these events is that they are very friendly and there’s quite a bit of banter!”Richardson arrived at the final playing off 11 and, after returning scores of 36 and 38 points, is anticipating that his handicap will be cut to eight, his lowest ever.After the first round he was two points off the lead and tied third. Today he forged ahead, saying: “I holed some really good putts at crucial times, especially on the 13th where I made a par for three points on my shot hole.”He had only one bad hole, on the 9th, when a bird flew out of the trees and distracted him as he was about to drive. “I duffed my tee shot and didn’t score any points,” said Richardson.Click here for full scores 10 Aug 2016 Yorkshire’s Richardson is the champion captain last_img read more

Kohli commented: “Nice pose jinksy,” alongside a couple of emojis. Compatriot Shikhar Dhawan, who is not part of the team playing the match, commented a humorous reply to Rahane’s caption: “Sapney mein pic khich gayi” (The picture got clicked in a dream!).Advertisement Rahane replied to both cricketers with some humour of his own, thanking Kohli by his nickname and giving a clever reply to Dhawan.

Video Tutorial: 5 Ways to Use Markers in Premiere Pro

first_imgMake your video editing projects infinitely more manageable by utilizing markers in Premiere Pro. Here’s how to go about it.Markers in Premiere Pro are among the best tools available for video editors working in Adobe’s NLE. Versatile, easy to use, and exceptionally handy, markers are perfect for workflow optimization. In the video tutorial below, we’ll look at five ways to incorporate them today. (If you’re more of a reader, we’ve broken down the points after the clip.) 1. LabelUtilize both timeline and clip markers to add color, text, and descriptions to your timeline. Labeling with markers helps you quickly visualize what’s going on throughout the edit. It is especially useful if you’re passing along the project to another editor. A person taking over your edit can quickly see what’s going on with proper labeling throughout the timeline. You can even give them specific instructions through marker titles and descriptions.   2. NavigateQuickly make your way around the timeline by using the Markers Panel. To jump between markers, select a marker in the Markers Panel and press the up and down arrow keys. The playhead will move on the timeline to the selected markers. You can specify if you want to show all clip markers or just the timeline markers by making adjustments in the Markers Panel drop-down menu.3. Sort and FilterIf you use color schemes while adding markers throughout your timeline, you can quickly sort and filter your markers by color in the Markers Panel. You can use colors to mark good b-roll takes or interview sound bites and then quickly sort, filter, and jump between good selects all on one timeline in the Markers Panel.4. SynchronizeIf you’re having problems syncing up audio and video, try using markers. If you have audio and video where an interviewee clapped, simply add a marker to the audio hit and the visual clap. Then Synchronize with clip markers.5. Edit to the BeatAdding markers to a music track can help you quickly edit your video to the beat. To add markers, simply select the music track, play it back, and add markers on the fly by pressing the M key. I usually tap my foot or count out loud to add markers at distinct intervals. Once I have markers on my music track, I can quickly edit video to the beat by snapping my In and Out points to the audio markers. I can also match action by adding another marker at the point of action on the video clip and then snapping that to a marker in the music track.How do you use markers in your Premiere Pro workflow?

Say Hello to #NewKlout: Klout Steps Into the Content Discovery Space

first_img Social Media Marketing Yesterday, Klout took a big step into the content discovery space with the launch of #NewKlout. Previously, the company was all about scoring your influence on social media and partnering you up with brands to reward those with high scores. Now, Klout wants to help you raise your influence score by surfacing interesting content for you to share.According to Klout’s announcement, this interesting content is tailored to what “will strike a chord with your unique set of friends, fans, and followers.” Then, Klout lets you share that interesting content through their platform, which you can measure by seeing your Klout score go up and down. On my first run-in with the new platform, I’ll admit: I wasn’t immediately blown away. Despite having topics that are mostly relevant to my interests (social media, blogging, marketing, Facebook, and public relations), my feed was littered with content from one PR-focused publication:Removing “public relations” from my topics, though, helped improve the relevancy of the results. Scrolling through, I found stories from sites I typically like reading. There were also visual indicators of trending stories, which could help me prioritize what to read and share. It’s been about a day since #NewKlout launched, and my suggested stories haven’t changed too much, so we’ll see if the algorithm updates more quickly in the future. That’s pretty much it on the actual product update side, folks. What’s interesting about #NewKlout isn’t necessarily the features themselves — it’s the overall trend of social networks getting into the content discovery space. #NewKlout, Paper, and LinkedIn Pulse: Social Networks Getting Into Content DiscoveryWith Facebook’s recent launch of Paper and LinkedIn’s acquisition of Pulse, there’s a really hot trend of social networks trying to solve the content discovery problem on the internet. Since there is now more content online than ever before, and more people are spending their time on social media, each network wants to make sure people are spending their time with them.The way to do that? Distill the signals from the noise and provide relevant content to their users. More relevant content means more time people will spend on their platform, which means they’ll have greater opportunities to surface ads to those people. It makes sense why Klout would want to start surfacing content to its users — everyone else is doing it.Basically, I think we can all agree that Klout wasn’t too sticky before — you found out your score and then left. Now, with more content to discover and share, Klout could have a fighting chance in the social network battle for content discovery dominance. Maybe Klout’s algorithm could help surface more relevant content than the other networks. Only time will tell.What do you think of the new Klout? Would you use it to discover new content? Leave your thoughts with us in the comments. Don’t forget to share this post!
