Will Lydia Ko Be the Tiger Woods of the LPGA Tour? At just 17 years old, Lydia Ko is making quite a mark on the LPGA Tour. She won the 2012 Canadian Women’s Open as a 15-year-old amateur and repeated the feat in 2013. In addition, she won two other professional tournaments in Australia and New Zealand as a teenage amateur. She became professional last October and won the Swinging Skirts Ladies Masters in Taiwan in December on the Korean Ladies Professional Golf Tour. She just collected her first official win as an LPGA Tour member at the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in San Francisco recently. Ko had risen to No. 4 in the Rolex Rankings while still an amateur. After her two latest wins as a professional, she is now the No. 3-ranked player in the world. Ko's amazing success at a young age reminds one of the rapid rise of Tiger Woods on the PGA Tour from 1996 to 2001.Woods' amazing record captured the imagination of even casual golf fans and encouraged a crossover from sports fans not usually interested in ...
Movie Stars of World War II Arthur Franz (1920-2006) [Submarine Command (1951); The Young Lions (1958); That Championship Season (1983)] was born in Perth Amboy, NJ and died of heart failure in Oxnard, CA. During World War II, Franz served as a navigator in the U.S. Army Air Forces. He was shot down over Romania and incarcerated in a POW camp, from which he escaped. Franz's interest in acting had developed in high school so after the war he pursued his dream and became a reliable character actor in many '50s B pictures, often cast as a friendly small-town businessman or professional (as in The Doctor and the Girl (1949)) or the lead's sympathetic friend (as in Invaders from Mars (1953)). However, in The Sniper (1952), he turned in an outstanding performance as a mentally unstable ex-soldier who, after being rejected by a woman he was interested in, snaps and terrorizes the city of San Francisco by stalking and picking off women. He lived in New Zealand for many years but wished to return to California dur ...

ASTEROID IS GOING TO HIT HE EARTH. What is going to happen? What the Bible says. about this? Please read the following article: SCIENCE & BIBLE AGREE An Asteroid Will Hit! Can You Imagine This News Story? This morning, at 7:48 AM eastern daylight time an asteroid estimated to be 11/2 miles in diameter struck the South Pacific Ocean. Although details remain sketchy, seismographs at University of California, Berkley registered the impact at 8.4 on the Richter scale. A tidal wave approximately 600 feet high has hit Japan, New Zealand, and Australia. Scientists estimate the tsunami will reach the West Coast of the United States at 4:00 PM (EDT). A wave this size will destroy the cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco and may cause flooding as far as Las Vegas. This disaster is the third in a series of cataclysmic events that have occurred in the past four months. The first event was the worldwide earthquake followed by a meteoric firestorm. These natural disasters have caused such devastation that the fede . ...

About our hosting art teacher, Rachel Znerold: Growing up in the Colorado countryside, Rachel Znerold knew early on that she was different—she saw dazzling beauty in decomposing logs and scrawled wild designs on her sneakers. Now, as a painter, one-of-a-kind eco-fashion designer, performance artist and teacher, Rachel makes her life out of making art. With a degree in Fine Art and Advertising from The University of Colorado in Boulder, she became a resident artist at Rembrandt Yard Gallery, and taught painting, fashion design, and performance at schools throughout Boulder. After traveling to New Zealand and Mexico to complete commissioned mural projects, Rachel landed in San Francisco. Now a member of the Mission District's vibrant art scene, Rachel’s work has shown at Wonderland Gallery, 111 Minna, Secession Art & Design, Femina Potens, Market Street Gallery and she has performed in San Francisco at the Rickshaw Stop, Dance Mission Theatre, The Box Factory and at Yerba Buena Night Out. Rachel current ...
This happened to me once before, two years ago. I am about to fly from Portland, Oregon, via to San Francisco, California, (where I connect with Baxter Kruger) and we fly to Auckland, New Zealand. We leave tonight, Dec 31st, fly through the night and arrive in the morning, Jan 2nd, completely losing New Year's Day. Does that mean that the New Year’s football games didn’t actually happen? Time, such an odd commodity, more a perceived reality that ‘adults’ measure relentlessly for one purpose or agenda or some other reason that I am certain we can justify. Children don’t much care for it until we teach them it is centrally important to existence, especially at bedtime. A New Year! There was a time when the change of the calendar was a most depressing event, another twelve months to make a whole new set of mistakes. These days I love this transition, this movement of reminders, both about growth and losses, akin to the celebration of sacred space as a reminder that all space is sacred. The word f . ...
America's Cup Events May Be Held Annually The America's Cup could be coming to New Zealand after all, if early speculation regarding the shape of the next regatta comes to pass. One possibility mooted ahead of the next Cup is that all entrants to the next regatta will stage a leg of the America's Cup. An international series will be held before a semifinal and final in San Francisco, if that is the venue for the next Cup chosen by holders, Oracle Team USA. Sources in the US, New Zealand and Australia have confirmed there is much talk in Cup circles of hosting "home" America's Cup events in the countries of competing teams. The idea is to have more frequent Cup action - good for sponsors and TV rights - and to focus on the Cup more than once every four years or so. It must be emphasised that these are extremely early days and the Cup community is waiting to see what OTUSA decide in terms of the protocol for the 35th America's Cup - the guiding rules which cover the timing, location, format, type of boat an ...

November 9th: On this Day 1958, Elvis Presley's 'Hound Dog', exceeded three million copies sold in the USA, becoming only the third single to do so. Bing Crosby's 'White Christmas' & 'Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer' by Gene Autry being the other two. 1966, John Lennon met Yoko Ono for the first time when he visited her art exhibition 'Unfinished Paintings and Objects' at the Indica Gallery in London. 1967, The first issue of Rolling Stone Magazine was published in San Francisco. It featured a photo of John Lennon on the cover, dressed in army fatigues while acting in his recent film, How I Won the War and the first issue had a free roach clip to hold a marijuana joint. The name of the magazine was compiled from three significant sources: the Muddy Waters song, the first rock ‘n’ roll record by Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones. 1985, Jan Hammer went to No.1 on the US singles chart with the 'Miami Vice Theme', a No.5 hit in the UK. 1990, The internal revenue seized all of US country singers Willie Nelson ...
If you were to go to Antarctica then Hobart, Tasmania would likely be your starting point. Hobart is where I am today. It's the 2nd oldest city in Australia. It's hilly like San Francisco. I like it. Not too big. Not too small. We drove 1.5 hours thru Huon Valley to walk among trees only found in Tasmania at Tahune Forest. Upon returning I toured the city then shopped along the artsy seaport shops. This is where I say goodbye to Australia. It's been an adventure filled 5 months of working and touring in Australia. I saw more of Western Australia than most Aussies. Then I saw the typical tourist spots of The Great Barrier Reef, Ayers Rock (Uluru), and Sydney. What a grand memorable journey I have experienced. Onward to New Zealand!
To defray the costs (like the millions) Emirates Team New Zealand have found a new way to mount a challenge for the Americas Cup in San Francisco. I am going to suggest that Chito get a team of Filipinos to join in and Marty in New York will be there as well with a few Hispanics. Okay guys I challenge you and I will also get a few Cuzzie Bros from New Zealand . Any more takers. We can have it wrapped and in the CAN already I reckon.

San Francisco 2013 – The Unofficial Story - By Craig Edwards Part 1 of 4 The sense or arrival at San Francisco Airport was heighted by meeting fellow Kiwi Hillary Barry of 3 News and her crew. There was clearly a good contingent of Team New Zealand supporters arriving on our flight to see the opening race of the 34th America’s Cup contest the next day. We all shared the same anticipation… who would have the faster boat? After checking in at Sanford Court Hotel near Union Square it was off to meet new friends from the International Order of the Blue Gavel. The AC final was a good excuse for a get together of members of this respected club of former yacht club commodores. They turned out to be a great bunch of people from clubs in Santa Monica and San Diego as well as local clubs in San Francisco. I was the sole, but proud, representative from District 75 in NZ. Together with fellow kiwi yachties Kelly Hutchings and Sam Jones from Naval Point Club Lyttelton in Christchurch and Marlborian and Wai ...
So the American entry [Oracle] won the Americas Cup sailing event in San Francisco harbour against the New Zealanders. Their captain [Spithill] is an Australian and the rest of the crew are New Zealanders with the exception of one Briton The New Zealand crew were ALL from New Zealand ENOUGH SAID?
I try to get at least one after work sail in each week, today we sailed out to SPYC and motored into TRYC well after sunset. Got home fired up the DVR, heard Gary Jobson say something along the lines of people in Aukland, New Zealand, San Francisco and Barnegat Bay, NJ are watching. And how sweet it was. A perfect day! The cup is still ours!!! Now we wait for when, where, and in what will be the next America's Cup. Fun stuff. GO TEAM USA!
Dean Barker and Team New Zealand: I believe in you today and in the future. You may of not suceeded today, but there is hope for tomorrow. You all did a dam good job in San Francisco. I am proud of you all. Kia Kaha - STAND TALL AND STAND PROUD. As for you other Kiwi's that were sailing on Oracle, shame on you, for not staying loyal to New Zealand.
Increible! Larry Ellison captures America's Cup The US boat funded by Oracle boss Larry Ellison pulled off an improbable and dramatic victory in San Francisco Bay on Wednesday afternoon to recapture sailing’s America’s Cup. The defeat of a New Zealand boat backed by Emirates Airline capped the closest showdown in the 162 year history of the race, the oldest continually contested trophy in sport.
G’day Deano and the crew. This is from us back home. You’ll be having some strategy meeting. Knocking around a few ideas. *** you might even be asleep. Us at home? We’re doing that too. You’ll have your eye on the big picture, the San Francisco Bay weather, the clouds, the rules, what the Americans (or is it Aussies?) are doing to their boat over night. Probably giving the big outboard motor a polish, if the last few days are anything to go by. We don’t know about any of that stuff. We know bugger all about sailing. I don’t mean that lot by the sea up North with their flash boats sitting around the yacht club yelling at the television in some nautical language we don’t speak, they know about sailing. I mean us. The rest of us out in New Zealand. We are getting up every morning to watch you and the boys taking on the Billionaire at a sport none of us know about. We want you to win it for us. You’ve got Team New Zealand written on the boat. That’s our boat. We are Team New Zealand. We sh . ...
It is widely speculated that Oracle CEO Larry Ellison will announce today at Oracle Open World in San Francisco, that he is acquiring by hostel takeover, the country of New Zealand in an attempt to prove world domination, and ensuring the America's Cup Trophy stays in his grubby mitts. After the race, he will donate the island to those who are less fortunate (Mitt Romney, and Donald Trump) and will become a retirement community for believers in trickle down economics.
Wonder if words `sport' and `America's Cup' is a mismatch? Both yachts have New Zealand (Auckland) origins. Team USA Oracle is skippered by a very capable Australia. Another Oracle team leader is a New Zealand yachting legend. When Team USA's Oracle was not performing a team of fix-it New Zealanders was flown in. So whose cup does that really make it? Are we being sucked into accepting a load of *** on San Francisco harbour?
Yup! Big change from a week ago. They were 1 to 1 (-1) when we left San Francisco. Then New Zealand won the next 7 in a row. We were all set to book our flights to Auckland. With the score 8 to -1 the Americans said *** let's settle down and go out and win this thing." With the score now 8 to 8 (10) the USA has pulled even, negated their 2 race penalty and pulled even. Now it's one more race and---Match Point--- tomorrow!

USA Won today's America's Cup sailing race in San Francisco Bay. Now we are only behind New Zealand by SIX races. The first team to win 9 races wins the cup. New Zealand had won 8 races. These newer, larger, Catamarans are 13 stories tall and this is the first time they have been raced in the America's Cup. Very exciting!!! but a lot of new vocabulary: foils, tacts, zero somethings...jibs, hooks, taliards, herbert, reach, stationary wing, the pie warmer, coffee grinders, tactitian and let's have another look at those grinders. In May, (sailor) Bart Simpson was killed when one of these boats flipped on a training run and he was trapped below. NOW they wear more equipment on their bodies so they can be found if there's another accident.

Today was a good day. My son-in-law drove me to San Francisco to have lunch with my best friend John Sullivan. John flew in from Florida so we could have lunch and watch New Zealand race the first round Louis Vuitton of the America's Cup. It was another great afternoon at the St Francis Yacht Club.
Great tennis match over, now onto the Grand Prix, saving the cycling for later and the farce that is the America's Cup begins tonight in San Francisco, with Team New Zealand simply having to go round the course on their own to score points. Between Larry Ellison and the tragedy of Andrew Simpson's death this summer they have destroyed this iconic event. Let's hope the Kiwis win through and get rid of Oracle in September and take the cup back to New Zealand and turn it back into an event which is affordable and safe for the teams to compete in. This is the beginning of the end of the farce which Larry Ellison's greed created. It will take the Kiwis to put it right for the rest of the world. This first race at 7.15 pm UK time must truly be in memory of Andrew Simpson. RIP to a Great Olympic gold medallist.
OK, you’re all gonna love this. You know I do marriages as my job. I’m an officiant. I love every single one of them, fall in love with brides, grooms, think they’re all beautiful – they ARE. But one I did a couple of months ago is worth writing about. The son of a good friend of mine in San Francisco came out from Minnesota with his fiancée to be married. They didn’t know San Francisco so I took them on a little tour of our prettiest spots the day before the wedding. I had written a ceremony for them, of course. On the morning of the wedding, I went to their hotel. They’d actually rented quite a large house in the Mission – her relatives had come from New Zealand – and we were all to go together to Muir Woods for the wedding. When I got to the hotel , I was introduced to the other guests and there were two girls there. I asked whose girls they were and was told that they were the daughters of the bride. I was told that Audrey was 9 years old, and Marissa 13. Both were just gor ...
The Queensland Air Museum has secured the remains of an iconic Australian airliner, BCPA Douglas DC-6 VH-PBG. The aircraft has been donated to QAM by Lanseria International Airport, where it is located on the fire dump there. We are now faced with the daunting prospect of returning it from South Africa to Australia. We feel it is important to attempt this task as no examples of this once great airliner exist in Australia and to also commemorate British Commonwealth Pacific Airlines (BCPA). BCPA was a short lived airline established in 1946 with the shareholders being the governments of Australia (50%), New Zealand (30%) and the United Kingdom (20%). It operated trans-Pacific services from Australia and New Zealand to San Francisco firstly with DC-4s before moving to DC-6s. BCPA was wound up in 1954 with Qantas taking over the services. If you feel you might be able to assist in the recovery in some way, please contact the museum by sending an email to dc-6 You can read more about the aircraft and the airl ...

The latest from San Francisco: Team New Zealand to protest America's Cup changes Tom FitzGerald Updated 11:48 pm, Wednesday, June 26, 2013 On a beautiful day on which Oracle Team USA sailed its two AC72 boats together for a full day for the first time, storm clouds continued to lurk over the America's Cup rules negotiations Wednesday. With the four teams unable to reach an agreement while working with two mediators over a couple of thorny issues, Emirates Team New Zealand was preparing to file a protest to the five-member America's Cup jury. Team New Zealand CEO Grant Dalton said he will file for a jury verdict. A Luna Rossa spokesman, Francesco Longanesi-Cattani, said his team would file a protest, too. "What's happening is just short of a scandal," Longanesi-Cattani said. The jury, however, won't arrive until Wednesday, just four days before the Louis Vuitton Cup challenger round-robin begins July 7. According to Dalton, regatta director Iain Murray has overstepped his bounds in implementing rules chang ...

Lack of progress in safety provisions frustrating America's Cup in wake of Andrew Simpson death Just two of original 37 proposals have been incorporated into the rules following death of British sailor THE INDEPENDENT. STUART ALEXANDER SUNDAY 16 JUNE 2013 Slow progress is being made in San Francisco on changes to the America’s Cup safety provisions following the death of Andrew Simpson during a training accident on the Swedish challenger Artemis. With considerable fanfare, a review committee under the chairmanship of the regatta director Iain Murray produced a list of 37 recommendations, though the other members of the committee were told by the lawyers not to put their names to the proposals. Over the weekend two, well one and a half, of the recommendations were incorporated into the rules for both the Louis Vuitton Cup (LVC) challenger elimination series and the match between the eventual winner and the defender, the locally-based Oracle Racing. One covers technical matters surrounding the structure o ...

(Reuters) - The euro rose for a second straight day against the dollar on Tuesday while commodity currencies such as the Australian and New Zealand dollars gained as risk sentiment improved after a major U.S. stock index surged to all-time highs. The Dow Jones industrial average hit a record, blowing past lifetime peaks last seen in October 2007, when the world was heading toward the financial crisis. "The dollar is still a function of risk sentiment. So when you see the stock market rise, tangentially, that means a lower dollar and stronger foreign currencies," said Tatjana Michel, director of currency analysis at Charles Schwab in San Francisco. Investors tend to buy riskier currencies such as the euro and Australian dollar in times of increased appetite for risk. Greg Moore, currency strategist, at TD Securities in Toronto pointed out, however, that the Dow's impact on the currency market was not as strong as many had expected, adding that he doesn't expect risk sentiment to continue driving currencies ...

National Fluffernutter Sandwich Day honors a tradition that goes back to before WWI. School lunches packed at home with peanut butter and marshmallow creme sandwiches. Take one with you to work today for a little nostalgia. And a sugar rush. It's Thanksgiving Day in The Great White North. In honor of Columbus Day it's the National Day of Mourning for Indigenous Peoples of the Americas. On a lighter note it's also National Depression Screening Day. It's the Christian Feast Day of three Saints named Pelagia one of whom was a virgin martyr and one who most definitely was not. On this day in history in 1582 this day also didn't happen in Italy, Poland, Portugal, and Spain, in 1645 the first hospital in North America opened, in 1769 Cook reached New Zealand, in 1818 boxing gloves were used for the first time, in 1860 the first telegraph message was sent from LA to San Francisco, in 1871 the Great Chicago Fire started, in 1896 the Dow Jones Average was created, in 1904 Edmonton and Price Albert were incorporat ...

Just watched the newly designed America's Cup catamarans . What a treat. I remember Ted Turner at Newport years ago. The new catamarans actually raced in Naragansett Bay this time. They could race in Palacios Bay they have such a shallow draft. Next year in San Francisco. Hope Dennis Connor doesn't show up. He was the first skipper to lose the Cup. He lost it to New Zealand. Anyway, good to relive the race.

We flew to Sydney and cruised back to San Francisco making stops in New Zealand, Fiji (Suva), American Samoa (Pago Pago), Bora Bora, Tahitian Islands (Papeete and Moorea), Honolulu, Maui and ending in San Francisco. We spent two nights in Sydney (pre cruise) and one night in San Francisco (post cruise).
