New Delhi: Robert Kubica, who became the first Polish driver in the history of Formula One, knows the art of survival. His career changed with two devastating crashes in 2007 and 2011. The crash in 2011, in particular, during a rally car race, almost severed his right arm and many pundits said his racing career was done. However, in a remarkable turnaround, eight years since that devastating crash, Kubica has been signed up by team Williams as a driver for the 2019 Formula One season. The 33-year-old competed in a series of practice sessions and his promotion was confirmed just ahead of the season-ending Abu Dhabi race.Williams announced the signing officially on their Twitter handle (@WilliamsRacing). Along with Kubica, 21-year-old British driver George Russell will be his team-mate. Kubica replaces Russia’s Segey Sirotkin in the roster, who had an average year with Williams in 2018.Read More | Lewis Hamilton wins Brazilian GP, Max Verstappen involved in punch-upKubica made his debut in 2006 for BMW Sauber and started off on a steady note. However, in 2007, his season was marred by a horrific accident in the Canadian Grand Prix. On lap 27, his car made contact with Jarno Trulli’s Toyota and hit a hump in the grass which lifted the car’s nose into the air. The car then hit the concrete retaining wall and rolled as it came back across the track, striking the opposite wall on the outside of the hairpin and coming to rest on its side. Kubica was conscious and talking and there were reports that the Polish driver suffered a broken leg.Read More | Lakshya Sen secures bronze in World Junior Badminton ChampionshipHowever, the year 2008 saw Kubica at his best as he won the Canadian Grand Prix and finished the driver’s championship in fourth for BMW Sauber. In 2009, he finished second in the Brazilian Grand Prix and in 2010, he moved to Renault.Horrific crashIn the 2011 Ronde di Andorra rally in Italy, Kubica took part in the rally for personal fun but suffered a horrific crash when his car left the road at high speed and hit a crash barrier near the church of San Sebastiano. Kubica was trapped in the car for more than an hour before rescue workers were able to extricate him. It was confirmed that he had suffered partial amputation of his forearm, compound fractures to his right elbow, shoulder and leg, as well as significant loss of blood. The severity of his injuries was the result of the crash barrier penetrating the car’s cockpit.Tragically, before the accident happened, he was in talks with Ferrari for a seat in the 2012 season but it was announced that he would not be ready.Kubica recovered slowly and in 2012, won the Ronde Gomitolo Di Lana in a WRC car months after breaking his leg. After racing in GT3 and Formula E, Kubica returned to Formula One, this time for Renault in 2017 as a test driver. Following Felipe Massa’s retirement, he raced for Williams in 2017 and became a reserve driver for the team in 2018.Speaking about the announcement, Kubica said, “What seemed almost impossible is now beginning to feel possible, as I am excited to be able to say that I will be on the Formula One grid in 2019. Being back on the F1 grid next season will be one of the greatest achievements of my life. It has been a long road to get to this point, but as that challenge now comes to an end with this announcement, a new challenge begins working with Williams on track.”After overcoming near-death experiences, one hopes that Kubica’s performance in 2019 script a fairytale story of success.

Follow us on Twitter @dailytrojan Entrepreneur Johnny Earle, better known as Johnny Cupcakes, spoke to students about his business Monday in Taper Hall of the Humanities at an event hosted by the USC Speaking Committee.Earle started selling T-shirts out of the trunk of his ’89 Toyota Camry. Now, he has a multimillion dollar business with locations in the United States and England. He was named America’s No. 1 young entrepreneur by Bloomberg BusinessWeek in 2008, as well as one of the 30 most innovative businessmen in Massachusetts by the Boston Globe in 2011.As a kid, Earle set up lemonade stands and yard sales, selling his father’s old tools and his sister’s toys while his parents weren’t home. He bought a shovel for $9 and shoveled snow so that he could buy better winter garments for himself. Later, he performed magic tricks and was paid $20 for every 30 minutes he performed at birthday parties.Though Earle has a borderline learning disability, he saw the quality as beneficial rather than disadvantageous.“I didn’t believe it was a disability,” he said. “I thought it was a superpower.”When Earle grasped what he wanted to do with his life, he said he poured passion toward it and used his disability to his advantage.“When I found out what I wanted to do, I would put 110 percent into it,” he saidEarle also gave several pieces of advice to USC students who were interested in becoming entrepreneurs. He described the time when he made a yearbook out of a scrapbook when his school did not have one. Because he did not have enough money to buy supplies to make the yearbooks, he took pre-orders before making them.“I sold a product that didn’t even exist yet,” he said.In advertising, Earle said, students can offer an incentive, provide a sample of the product and approach people they know as well as talk to new people. When talking to new people, there are three essential components, Earle said. The entrepreneur should have a good handshake, good eye contact and not have bad breath — qualities necessary in a marriage as well, he joked.“You could have a million dollar idea, but if you have horrible breath, they’re not gonna listen to your idea,” he said.In deciding which items to sell, Earle said he had to become creative.“Since my friends were already selling drugs, I had to sell something else,” he joked.Earle instead chose to sell candy. Earle sold 100 packs of candy for a dollar each two times a day, making $200 a day. In a week, he made $1,000.“I would come back everyday with a backpack full of cash,” Earle said.Earle had another creative breakthrough when he came up with the idea for Johnny Cupcakes T-shirts while ordering T-shirts for his hardcore metal band. He said was intrigued by the machines that made T-shirts.“[I thought,] I can’t afford T-shirts, but I’m gonna learn how to make them,” Earle said.Though Earle started businesses when he was young, he instead advised students to get hands-on experience through internships. By getting hands-on experience, Earle said students can learn what they want to do for the rest of their lives and what they don’t.To follow his passion and pour in all his energy into it, Earle said he had to cut down on distractions such as video games, social media, television, partying and relationships.“Time is the most valuable thing you have,” he said.When he printed out his own designs and started wearing his T-shirts to his work at a record shop, people who usually didn’t even make eye contact with Earle started laughing. Earle said his experience shows that a company does not need big investors to become successful. Alex Zhang, a freshman majoring in business administration, agreed.“It’s a common misconception that you need [venture capitalists] to back you up when you can just do it yourself and work slowly,” he said.The reason Earle’s brand has stayed in business for 13 years and is a multimillion dollar business is that all of the products it releases are based on experience, Earle said.For example, the company had a breakfast shirt that they only sold during breakfast hours. Though some customers were angry at the sale cutoff time, the strategy worked: people talked about the brand.The company also gave out free breakfast with the purchase of the shirt as a form of brand advertising.“It might cost a little bit more money and time, but I feel that we get that back with brand longevity,” Earle said.Earle said the most important aspect in creating a new business is originality. To determine this, Earle said entrepreneurs should ask themselves one question.“What are the 10 plus things that make your [business] unique?” Earle said.Gurleen Chadha, a junior majoring in neuroscience, was intrigued by the brand’s name and logo.“The brand image, because it’s called Johnny Cupcakes and it has nothing to do with cupcakes, I think that’s really funny because it’s a good way of capturing people’s attention, and packaging and marketing the brand as it is,” Chadha said.Many students were eager to learn how Earle developed his business concept and how he marketed his products. Tiffany Tse, a sophomore majoring in biological sciences, said she was curious to know how he was able to build a successful business from such humble beginnings.“If you’re not from a big brand already, it’s hard to get established and if you’re just starting off from nothing, it’s hard to make so much money off a simple T-shirt,” she said.A unique feature to Earle’s business strategies is to remain an independent business. He turned down offers from companies such as Macy’s, Nordstrom, Urban Outfitters and Hot Topic to carry his products in their stores in order to continue curating a memorable experience for the customers.“If you do sell to stores, make sure you sell to the right stores,” he said.Students were able to connect with Earle’s strategy of remaining independent to maintain its values.“When you want to have that much control over a product and you sacrifice things like that, it’s taking a huge risk, but it ends up paying off,” said Brian Shaw, a junior majoring in human biology.In terms of personal success, Earl also had a piece of advice for students.“Real success is being happy doing what you love,” he said.

This has opened the door for potential competitors in Boston, New York and Dallas, the report noted.Walker has insisted his top choice is to stay with the team that drafted him ninth overall in 2011 after spending his entire eight-year career in Charlotte, but the Lakers and Mavericks have also expressed interest in signing him.

He became eligible for a “supermax” deal when he was named to the All-NBA third team after the season ended.”Charlotte’s definitely my first priority,” Walker told The Athletic earlier this month. “That’s where I’ve been for eight years and that’s all I know. Not many people get a chance to play for one NBA team throughout their career. … Charlotte is my home, man. I’ve been there for eight years and it’s been the most amazing eight years of my life. My family, they love it. The fans love me. The organization has been great and gave me my opportunity.”Walker, 29, averaged a career-high 25.6 points, along with 5.9 assists for the Hornets last season. He shot 43.4 percent from the field and 35.6 percent from 3-point range.
6 Apr 2016 England Golf supports first English Disability Open England Golf is partnering the charity BALASA to support the first English Disability Open Championship at the Forest of Arden, Warwickshire, from 27-28 August 2016.BALASA is the charity promoting golf for all disabilities and its secretary, Ian Dixon, commented: “BALASA are delighted to collaborate with England Golf on the first English Disability Open.“This partnership, together with Marriott Forest of Arden, aims to deliver a successful and memorable tournament for all.”The championship will be open to all disabled golfers who meet the definitions of impairment as set out in the conditions and who hold a CONGU handicap with competition status.Golfers, regardless of their impairment, will play in three handicap categories over 36 holes on the Arden Championship Course. Category One and Two golfers will compete in strokeplay events and Category Three golfers will play a stableford competition.Awards will be made to the winner of each handicap category. Prizes will also be awarded for highest placed junior and female players.The tournament is the start of a process to develop an event that meets the needs of disabled golfers and which creates as many parallels as possible to the golf competitions already run by England Golf.It marks the beginning of an organisational transition from disability golf groups, which have previously run the national disability golf events, to the Championships team at England Golf. It will create an event which provides a clear competitive pathway for amateur disabled golfers.Although not a European Disabled Golf Association badged event, players holding an EDGA Medical Pass will be able to submit scores from this event to the EDGA RankingsJamie Blair, England Golf’s Disability Manager, said: “As part of our role as the governing body for amateur golf in England, we are pleased that this starts a period of learning between those who have provided disability golf competitions for a number of years and the England Golf Championships Team.“Taking a lead in all areas of our game, including disability golf, has been a key aim within our Raising Our Game strategy. I hope that this event can evolve over time with the work we are doing at a grassroots level to create a bigger field, a junior competition and embrace other partners’ events.“I would like to thank the BALASA Golf committee for agreeing to partner their event with us, the team at the Forest of Arden and to the other disability golf partners for their input and support in making this event a success.”
“And on the tee…..”Wasn’t it fantastic to think about those words again today as golf courses all over England re-opened for play?The catchphrase of Ivor Robson – the starter at The Open and on the European Tour for many years – would no doubt have been mimicked from Durham to Devon as the first balls were struck (or topped!) after a break of more than seven weeks.It was great feeling to wake up this morning knowing that the majority of our golf clubs were ready to take down that dreaded ‘Course Closed’ sign.My phone has been buzzing with texts from pals thankful that their daily exercise can now involve picking up their sticks again and getting out on the fairways while staying true to the ‘Play Safe, Stay Safe’ message. The jokes have started, the sledging won’t be far behind!It might be the weekend before I can get back on my course at Marlborough, but I know from speaking to my chairman that there is a buzz about golf being back.Whether it’s going out with a member of your household or meeting up with a pal again, being able to play social golf will undoubtedly lift the mood of our golfing community.The hours since lockdown easing was announced – allowing golf to be one of the first sports to return – have been truly hectic.I’d like to acknowledge the amazing work that has been going on in the background to prepare for golf’s comeback.In challenging times, greenkeepers deserve a medal for the work they have put in to tend our courses and make sure that with just 48 hours’ notice they were ready for play.General Managers, our Pro’s, committee members, all other golf club staff and volunteers have been through the mill and their Herculean efforts in trying to keep clubs afloat and communicating with members cannot be overlooked.To all of you I say – great job and thank you!!The reality now, of course, is that there is more hard work on the horizon.The financial issues raised by temporary business closure during the pandemic also means that there are tough times ahead for all clubs.We are not out of the woods on this one. Rest assured England Golf will do all it can to support our clubs in the weeks and months ahead.The threat from COVID-19 is also still very real and there is a huge onus on all of us to make sure we Stay Alert and don’t become complacent.Our Play Safe, Stay Safe message has resonated with golfers over the past few weeks and it’s crucial that everyone continues to act responsibly.Health remains the priority and we cannot take our eye off the ball and put strain back on the NHS and frontline workers who deserve our support and backing now more than ever.The media interest in golf’s return has been huge. As such, we all have an opportunity to shine a light on our game and let others see what a wonderful sport it is – and one we will never take for granted.There are many challenges ahead, but today is a day to be celebrated and enjoyed.Today, more than any other, it really is the taking part that counts.Jeremy TomlinsonChief Executive, England Golf 13 May 2020 On the tee – a letter from our CEO Tags: Coronavirus

Kiaran McLaughlinJoe DeSantisPress ConferenceTHE MODERATOR: Congratulations to the winners of the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, Tamarkuz. We are joined by trainer Kiaran McLaughlin and Shadwell Racing manager, Joe DeSantis. Congratulations to you both, thanks for being here. Kiaran, I’d love to hear from you in your own words how this race unfolded and how you saw it.KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: Well, now all the media knows why Frosted is running in the Classic. We thought we had one good enough to win the Mile already. He didn’t break real sharp, but Mike did a great job with him settling back, and Mike’s just a great rider. He had a lot of confidence in the horse. And I was a little nervous when he didn’t break sharp, but it worked out great when the fractions were so fast by Runhappy, it was just a great trip.THE MODERATOR: Joe, it’s been a frustrating year, but it sounds like you knew you were sitting on a big one here. Can you talk about his campaign this year?JOE DESANTIS: Yeah, we brought him back, and obviously the Met Mile was the Met Mile, and Frosted was tremendous that day. We mapped out to go to Saratoga. And he ran terrific up there against could be a champion today (inaudible) and three-fifths off the track record behind Anchor Down last time, we just felt as though those efforts — he would sit on the big race, and the two-turns are what he was really excited about. He proved to us today that’s what he was looking for.THE MODERATOR: Kiaran, talk about the campaign, if you can add to that?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: Yeah, last year was a real honor to get him in America. We thank Sheikh Hamdan for that because he won the Godolphin Mile in Dubai. And now we added to it, which was great. It just took us a little while, but we stopped him through the winter and brought him back. He’s just a really neat horse. Very well balanced, great mover, and should make a nice stallion. We’re just privileged that he was in our barn.Q. This is not a homebred, so can you explain where you picked him up and how?JOE DESANTIS: He was bought at a yearling sale. It would be our farm manager, Greg Clarke, and Rick Nichols, our president, who is not here today. I just want to say he’s under the weather, and I just want to say that this is very important to Rick. I’m sure this is going to make him feel better, but that’s why he was not here today.But he was bought as a yearling and taken to Europe where he had a decent career, but when they put him on the dirt in Dubai is when we really figured out what he was about, and that’s why Sheikh Hamdan sent him back to us.Q. Kiaran, “Big Money” Mike, I know he’s ridden him before. How did you secure him for the Breeders’ Cup here today?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: We were lucky enough to get him at Saratoga. He liked the horse, finished second, and then he was at Belmont for Effinex, the next start, I believe that’s who he rode. We were able to have him that day also, and then I just contacted his agent and he was happy to hold the call, so it was worked out great. He’s a great rider.Q. Because of his familiarity, were there any pre-race instructions or were you like, hey, Mike, do your thing?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: When they drew the race, I was with him, and he was really happy with 8 of 9. He thought we’d be a little closer following, but it worked out great. No, not a lot of instruction with Mike Smith. We’re just happy to have him. I think he’s the all-time winner of the most Breeders’ Cups, isn’t he? He’s way up there. So he knows how to get the job done.Q. It’s great to see another Kentucky-bred horse, the Gunther Farms done well. But when did you first know that this horse would be of this caliber that you would take him this far?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: When it crossed the wire. We liked him, but he’s been second, third, fourth. He’s been a little bit unlucky. But he had the potential, and he had the past performances in winning the Godolphin Mile, so we’re just happy it all worked out today for him to win this very important race.Q. And if you had to guess, what do you think the next step for the horse would be?KIARAN MCLAUGHLIN: I have no idea. Like he said, Sheikh Hamdan, Rick Nichols will decide if he’ll run again or go to stud.I’d like to say one more thing. We’ve won three Breeders’ Cups in my career, and they’ve all been with these colors on, and it’s a very special owner and a great man to win for, and the whole team of Shadwell and everybody, it’s fabulous to be part of that team.FastScripts Transcript by ASAP Sports
