Ellie Webster has built up quite a following with her regular posts about golf on social media.However, it’s at her local club in Wiltshire where the 12-year-old is really gathering the most ‘likes’.Ellie is the latest recipient of our Hero’s Handshake award and was honoured yesterday in front of family and friends at Wrag Barn Golf Club.Throughout 2019, Ellie has helped light up the club with her winning smile and willingness to help fellow juniors.As a Girls Golf Rocks ambassador, Ellie was on hand to provide tips and encouragement for girls new to the game and attending two six-week coaching blocks set up by England Golf and the Golf Foundation.Regular posts on Instagram also charted her season on and off the course – with even the bad shots and rounds discussed and simply shrugged off as ‘par for the course.’Positive comments followed from all over England as well as America where her honest and witty posts struck a chord.Already working hard on a winter programme to help her improve on her 21 handicap, Ellie has impressed everyone at her club including Verity Manners who owns Wrag Barn GC along with her husband Tim.She admitted: “Ellie joined just over two years ago and has been a really active member of our golf community.“She is always helpful, always enthusiastic and approachable and does everything with a smile on her face.“Sometimes we are quick to slate social media, but the way Ellie uses it to promote positivity about golf shows that it can also be a very useful tool.“Ellie was on hand to help out at Girls Golf Rocks. We had around 20 girls taking part for the first time and it can be a bit daunting for them.“Ellie was there to keep them focused and hand out words of encouragement while the teaching pro carried out the sessions.“Whether or not she makes it as a pro herself, her early experiences in golf will stand her in good stead for life.“She has learned about interacting with fellow juniors, as well as men and ladies at the club who all play golf together during our golf week. She has learned the etiquette of the sport which is also useful for life skills.”Mum Tracy, dad Michael and little brother Logan were all present to see Ellie pick up her award after she finished playing in a club Texas scramble competition.They did well to keep the award a secret, but there’s no hiding from the fact young Ellie has her sights trained on a career in golf.“There’s nothing else she wants to do in life – there are no other options to even consider. She wants to be a golfer,” confirmed mum Tracy after Ali Jodiyawalla from the Young Ambassadors programme made the award presentation.“She’s played since the age of six and at 12 has a handicap of 21.“Ellie has embarked on a winter training programme including fitness work and her coach can already see that she is becoming stronger.“Ellie is quite quiet and unassuming and her involvement at the golf club has built up her confidence.“I supervise her social media access and together we have posted videos and photos and the good thing is she is not afraid to talk about her bad rounds as well as the good ones.“There’s been messages from all across the world – particularly in America. We went to Florida on holiday and started following various social media accounts of golf courses we visited.“In turn they followed Ellie and the responses have come from that source.“As a family we are so proud of her and all she is doing. This award means the world to her.” Tags: Wiltshire 25 Nov 2019 Hero’s Handshake Ellie is a social star

Powered by Firework Every cricket team that has ever gone on a tour of New Zealand knows the one infamous nightmare- the indomitable and unconquerable lethality of the bowling action of the Black Caps on their home soil. The Indian cricket team is well aware of this. From the disappointing test series loss back in 2014, to even the defeat in the T20 tour last year. While another tour of New Zealand is coming up, Team India’s stormy opener Rohit Sharma sheds positivity on the outcome.Advertisement Image Courtesy: PTI/cricket.com.auRohit Sharma was on a special interview session with the Press Trust of India. While the white ball expert discussed his path to success in Test cricket, he stated that the loss to New Zealand in the past has little chance of repatation, as the Men in Blues now have gained alot of momentum in the bowling department.Rohit said to PTI: “New Zealand is not the easiest place to play cricket. Last time, we lost the Test series (0-1) but we gave a good fight. But this bowling attack of ours is completely different from what we had back then.”Advertisement From the novice days of Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav, to the rise of superstar pacers such as Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar and Jasprit Bumrah, the foundation of India’s bowling squad has strengthened at its core.However, the New Zealand bowlers also pack a punch. The likes of Neil Wagner, Matt Henry, Trent Boult and Tim Southee will be a tough hurdle on an already challenging environment away from home, as Rohit continues: “For me personally, it’s going to be a challenge without doubt, facing the new ball bowlers and the guys who bowl in the middle overs.”Advertisement While the red ball behaviour is a lot more manageable at home soil that it is on outside, the 32 year old reminded of India’s recent rout of South Africa at home, where Kohli and co thrashed the Proteas 3-0 in the test series back in October 2019.“Facing the new ball in any conditions is not that easy. Of course, it’s lot tougher outside India. But then, we played three Test matches against South Africa and I have never seen the ball swing so much in India like it did in Pune (second Test),” Rohit recalled the different behaviour of the ball in the SA tests.The Mumbaiker had a stunning spell in the series, scoring 176 and 127 in both innings of the first test, and finishing with a blistering knock of 212 runs in the third and final day at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi.Rohit continued: “The first few overs that they (SA) bowled, the pitch was damp and so they got pretty much everything out of it. In Ranchi (where he got a double hundred) also, we were three down in no time.”The NZ series 6 years ago saw a 1-0 win for the hosts, as the first Test at Eden Park saw the visitors suffering a defeat of 40 runs. The second and final test at Basin Reserve was a draw as Rohit managed to make a score of 31 runs in the second innings.“But I know what to expect as I have been there the last time [2014 New Zealand series]. Not the easiest of conditions but I will be ready for that challenge.” Rohit added.Also read-Ian Bishop all praise for Indian fast bowling quartet: I didn’t expect this much improvementRohit Sharma reveals Test success followed after he stopped overthinking his red ball batting Advertisement

The Punjab government on Monday offered to pay compensation of ₹20 lakh and a government job to the deceased Dalit man’s wife and free education for his children. The family of 37-year-old Jagmel Singh who was mercilessly thrashed and forced to drink urine earlier this month ended their protest after the announcement. The family had refused to allow the post mortem of the body till their demand of ₹50 lakh compensation and a government job for the victim’s wife were met. Sandeep Sandhu, political secretary to Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, said a compensation of ₹20 lakh including ₹ 8.15 lakh provided under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act will be given to the next of kin. Sandhu, who held a meeting with the victim’s family here, further said that a government job would also be given to a family member of Jagmel. Besides, an Additional Director General of Police-rank officer will conduct a probe to find out if there was any lapse on the part of police in this case and a challan against all the four accused would be submitted within seven days, he said. The government will also bear the education expenditure of his three children till their graduation. He further said that a sum of ₹1.25 lakh would also be given for repair of their house. On October 21, the victim, who was a resident of Changaliwala village in Punjab’s Sangrur district, got into an altercation with one Rinku and some other persons. The dispute was resolved with the intervention of villagers, the police said. Before his death, the victim had told the police that on November 7, Rinku called him to his house where the two talked about the issue. He had alleged that he was then thrashed by four persons with a stick and an iron rod after being tied to a pillar and was forced to drink urine when he asked for water. After the incident, the opposition parties have attacked the Congress government over “barbaric treatment” being meted out to Dalits in the state. The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said a “rule of jungle” was prevalent in the state.

Amazing.”I know who won this prize almost by heart and to be honest, I appreciate it a lot. There are lots of very big names on the list, but if I were to name one, then Messi stands out for me. “Everybody recognises what he has done for and in football. I really like him a lot as a footballer so I’m very proud to have won the same trophy which he lifted before me, 13 years ago, when I was only six.”

Kolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday said the state government will set up Tajpur Port on its own. Banerjee said for the last five years, she had negotiated with the Centre to set up the port but in vain.Inaugurating the Dighashree Bangla International Convention Centre, she maintained: “Nitin Gadkari had told me that the Centre would set up the port if the state government was ready to give them 74 percent share. We had agreed and requested the Centre to construct an iron bridge at Gangasagar. We have waited for five years and now we have decided to set up the port on our own. It will generate new employment.” Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaState ministers Firhad Hakim, Indranil Sen, Suvendu Adhikari were present at the inaugural function along with Sishir Adhikari, Dibyendu Adhikari and Dipak Adhikari (MPs) and industrialists Rudra Chatterjee and Mayank Jalan.

Puri is a small place but they (Odisha government) could not build it the manner we have developed Digha. I have a plan to build a similar Jagannath temple here in Digha. There is a small Jagannath ghat here and I had asked the District Magistrate to renovate and upgrade it. We will also build Masjid and Church here… This will bring in more tourists here,” she said. She further added: “We are also planning to introduce electric buses here. We are building two parking plazas of international standard here. The government also has plans to bring in seaplanes to augment tourist footfall in Digha. The 7 km long stretch along the beach will also be beautified and opened to the public shortly.”
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia – Malaysian state-owned energy company Petronas says one of its wholly-owned entities has signed an agreement for an equity position in the LNG Canada project in Kitimat, B.C.Petronas, which did not divulge the investment amount in a news release early Thursday, says it expects the agreement to be completed in the next few months once regulatory approvals are obtained.The announcement comes less than a year after Petronas and its partners scrapped a $36-billion megaproject in British Columbia. A consortium led Petronas announced in July 2017 that it would not proceed with the Pacific NorthWest LNG project near Port Edward, B.C., due to what it called an “extremely challenging environment” brought on by prolonged low prices.In the new agreement announced Thursday, the Petronas-owned North Montney LNG Limited Partnership would hold a 25 percent stake in the LNG Canada project.Shell Canada Energy would hold 40 percent, PetroChina Canada Ltd., would have a 15 percent stake, Mitsubishi Corp., subsidiary Diamond LNG Canada Ltd., would also hold 15 percent, and Kogas Canada LNG Ltd. would have the remaining five percent.Petronas says the proposed project includes the design, construction and operation of a gas liquefaction plant and facilities for the storage and export of liquefied natural gas, including marine facilities.The plant will initially consist of two LNG processing units with an option to expand the project in the future.“Petronas is pleased to be part of the LNG Canada project,” said the president and group CEO Tan Sri Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin. “We are committed to deliver LNG and natural gas, the cleanest fossil fuel in the world, to the growing global energy market.”(THE CANADIAN PRESS)
