JOCKEY QUOTES RAFAEL BEJARANO, AVANTI BELLO, WINNER: “I thought he rushed too much in his last out at Los Alamitos when I saw it. He still ran well and finished well in the end but I knew (what I would do differently.)“I knew Boozer and Songforjohnmichael were coming from shorter distances and were going to show more speed today. I pretended to go to the lead to make the other horses go, they went and I found my position and waited as long as I could until the right moment. I knew that Soi Phet was going to come running in the end so I wanted to save a little bit.“I thought we won. When we got to the stretch I still had a little horse and he was fine.” DOUG O’NEILL, AVANTI BELLO, WINNER: “Rafael thought he was like riding a bike a little in that you have to keep (his) mind on the game. But, at the same time he’s a horse that is very tempting to shoot off to the lead early with because he has the gate speed. Rafael chose to sit in a reserved spot and when he called on him, he chirped at him he had saved enough for the end.” TRAINER QUOTES NOTES: The winning owners are Steve Keh of Glendale, CA, Jim Richardson of Danville, CA, Pablo Suarez of Valencia, CA, Tom Roberts of Corona, CA and Wonderland Racing Stables of Orange, Connecticut. KENT DESORMEAUX, SOI PHET, SECOND: “Gallant effort, I thought I won. I thought I won.”

Wayne Chan defied the rain and wind to take top Best Net honours as the race for the title of 2018 Annual Club Champion continued at the Lusignan Golf Club this past weekend.LGC President Aleem HussainChan racked up a Gross 69 while in the Best Gross category, it was Lusignan Golf Club (LGC) President Aleem Hussain who landed in first place while two-time Guyana Open Champion Mike Mangal finished second and Pur Persaud third.Persaud continued to make a statement as he shot a net 72 to come in second with MACORP executive Guillermo Escarraga making a strong return to the Greens with a net 74 to finish in third position.The winner of the annual point competition gets a variety of prizes along with a full year of bragging rights and the competition was keenly contested in the early stages, but after winning the first four events, the Best Net Champion Title looks to be a shoo-in for Club President Hussain who has performed extremely well this year.There is still a battle for the Best Gross Title as Mike Mangal refuses to quit and with just two matches left to play, it might come down to the very end. The LGC has seen an increased number of tournaments this year and as more major companies join the sponsorship ranks, the game is becoming more popular, drawing the attention of all ages and genders.Meanwhile, the 2018 Guyana Open promises to be a major event with golfers from more than 12 countries expected to participate. Only 100 spots are available for this year’s event and golfers are urged to register early to ensure that they have a spot to contend. Non-members are eligible to play in the two-day tournament and the fee of US$200 covers all expenses for the entire event.Tickets for the Guyana Open will be available from October 1. Please contact the Club at 220-5660 or visit its Facebook page @ Lusignan Golf Club for more information.

It’s easy to make friends in South Africa’s culturally diverse population, which makes Mzansi a hit with expats.(Image credit: Andy Carter) Sulaiman PhilipThe 2014 edition of the HSBC Expat Explorer survey spins a really good story for South Africa. Expatriate workers looking for a balance between work and a decent family life rated South Africa the second best destination in the world, after New Zealand.The annual survey measures four categories: earnings, lifestyle, raising children and the cost of living. Countries made it on to the list if, and only if, there were at least 100 respondents from each locale. South Africa did not fare that well in the economic measures, but it was close to the top in the social categories. Or as one respondent put it, in South Africa I “enjoy improved quality of life i.e. better weather and more social events. There’s more luxurious housing and better value for your income.”The results are based on the subjective opinions of almost 3 000 expats. Switzerland was tops overall, South Africa 22nd, but the country outranked most others on social measures, like “great place to raise children”. South Africa’s cultural diversity also made it easier for expats to find their feet, and made it easier for them to find something to remind them of home.The international bank measured four social categories: (1) ability to befriend locals, (2) success in learning the local language, (3) capacity for integrating themselves into the community and fitting into a new culture, and (4) raising children abroad. Like expat parents in New Zealand, expats living in South Africa felt their children enjoyed a better quality of life, and believed their children were more well-rounded as a result of being integrated into the local community.Expat life has evolved to become about more than just a bigger pay cheque or better career prospects. While this does remain true for younger and newer entrants to the job market, for married expats and those with children especially, a more balanced and well-rounded experience for themselves and their children matter as much as salary.As they did in the Land of the Long White Cloud, expats in South Africa claimed that the scenery, diversity of the landscape and good weather made their new homes the best place to raise children. The expats who voted New Zealand and South Africa as the top two places to raise children also mentioned that they felt their children were safer and healthier since they moved because children grew up more active, outdoorsy and healthy.People in search of better job prospects headed to Saudi Arabia, Qatar or Kuwait, countries that scored very low on integration with the local community. Money matters of course. Switzerland was voted top but as an average, the Asian subcontinent – mostly South Africa’s Brics partners China and India – scored highest in the salary stakes. The global salary average is $92 000 (about R997 000), but in Asia you can pocket $120 000 although you have to contend with a higher cost of living.In Mercers 2014 Cost of Living survey, Hong Kong (3), Singapore (4), Tokyo (7), Shanghai (10), Beijing (11), Seoul (14), and Shenzhen (17) were the Asian cities that made the top 20 most expensive cities in the world. Covering 211 cities across the globe, the Mercer survey measures the cost of 200 items in each location including housing, transport, food, clothing, household goods and entertainment.Companies and governments use the Mercer index to set compensation allowances for expat employees. There are four African cities on the list, with Luanda in Angola rated as the most expensive city in the world. N’Djamena in Chad (2), Victoria in the Seychelles (13), and Libreville in Gabon (19) are all more expensive than South Africa’s most expensive city, Cap Town, which came in at a value for money 205.Economic opportunity in South Africa, generally, cannot match the prospects of the countries that make up the top 10 of HSBC’s list, but the friendliness of South Africans remains one of the country’s biggest assets. We face challenges, and sometimes we don’t get along with our neighbours, but the warm smiles and affection Mzansi shares with foreigners – guests or expats – is infectious. Expats feel their children are safer and healthier and lived a more active, outdoorsy and spirited life.(Image credit: Sandra Mallinson)
Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Read Next Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City “And it’s not anything personal, I’m not here to tirade anybody, I’m not here to go at any particular person or the organization, because I have nothing but love for Cleveland. I have nothing but love for the times that I spent there. It’s nothing about that.”After mostly keeping to himself since the trade went down, Irving further explained his motivations behind leaving Cleveland.“It’s just there comes a time when you mature as an individual. It’s time to make that decision,” he shared.“And there is no looking back from that standpoint. There is no time to figure out how to save someone’s feelings, when ultimately you have to be selfish in figuring out what you want to do. And it wasn’t about me not wanting to win. It wasn’t anything about that. I want to be extremely, extremely happy in perfecting my craft.

Cardale Jones Softball SwingUpdate: It turns out Joey Bosa doesn’t suck at softball. He hit a home run during the intra-team scrimmage.Earlier: Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones is a gifted athlete – that’s been made clear over the past five or six months. But he doesn’t seem to have much talent for hitting a softball. Friday, OSU’s Instagram account posted a funny video of Jones completely whiffing on a high-arc softball pitch. One of his teammates took footage of it, and even slowed it down to show how much he missed the ball by.Thankfully, Ohio State fans don’t really have to worry here. Whatever 35+ softball team he joins two decades from now might want to, though.
