Golf's 'greatest ambassador' Arnold Palmer dies at the age of 87

Golfer Arnold Palmer has died, aged 87, according to the
US Golf Association and US golf media.
Palmer won seven majors, including four Masters, played
The Masters for 50 consecutive years and co-founded the
Golf Channel.
He drew thousands of fans to the game in the 1950s and
1960s and his keen fan base earned the moniker "Arnie's
Army".
His good looks, devilish grin and hard-charging style
combined with the arrival of television in most households
to make him a star and bring his sport to the masses.


The US Golf Association tweeted: "We are deeply
saddened by the death of Arnold Palmer, golf's greatest
ambassador, at age 87."
Palmer was born on 10 September, 1929, in Latrobe, a
small industrial town east of Pittsburgh.


The son of a greenskeeper, he started golfing at the age of
four and began caddying as an 11-year-old. He turned pro
in 1954 and bought the country club in 1971.
His first wife Winning died in 1999. They had two
daughters.
Palmer married Kathleen Gawthrop in 2005.
Aside from golf, his passion was aviation - in 1976 he set
a record in 1976 when he circumnavigated the world in 57
hours, 25 minutes and 42 seconds.
He flew his Cessna Citation until he failed to renew his
licence at the age of 81, just short of 20,000 hours of
flying.
Palmer died in Pittsburgh due to complications from heart
problems.
He appeared to be in bad health when he joined fellow
golfing icons Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus for the
ceremonial first tee shot at the Masters in April.
At that event, he had not been well enough to swing a golf
club.
Among Palmer's biggest fans was fellow golfer Tiger
Woods, who tweeted him birthday wishes on 10
September, saying: "Can't talk golf without thinking about
the King".
On Palmer's death, Woods wrote: "Thanks Arnold for your
friendship, counsel and a lot of laughs.
"Your philanthropy and humility are part of your legend.
"It's hard to imagine golf without you or anyone more
important to the game than the King."

Kate Mcwilliams, A British Woman Becomes One Of The World’s Youngest Commercial Airline Captains At The Age Of 26.

A British woman has become one of the world’s
youngest commercial airline captains at the age
of 26. Kate McWilliams, from Carlisle, said she
is asked about her age by cabin crew and
passengers almost daily and most people are
“pleasantly surprised and impressed” when she
tells them.
McWilliams began flying in the air cadets aged
13 before going on a training programme at
CTC Aviation in Southampton on her 19th
birthday then joining easyJet as a first officer in
May 2011. She recently rose to the rank of
captain after passing the airline’s command
course. An easyJet spokeswoman said the
budget carrier believes McWilliams is the
world’s youngest commercial airline captain.
McWilliams said:
“Personally, I don’t think
my age matters. I’ve been
through the same training
and passed the same
command course as every
other captain, so I’ve
proven myself capable
regardless of my age. I do
now get asked how old I
am on an almost daily
basis, which didn’t used to
happen when I was a first
officer.”
McWilliams lives in
Reigate, Surrey, and is
based at Gatwick airport .
She flies Airbus A319 and A320 planes to about
100 destinations, including Reykjavik, Tel Aviv
and Marrakech.
McWilliams said that when she was growing up,
she did not think it was an option to become a
commercial pilot, but she has “never looked
back” since beginning her training. “I love
being a commercial pilot for easyJet and I am
proud that I have now achieved my ambition of
becoming a captain,” she said.
Only 5% of commercial pilots are women and
last year easyJet announced an initiative to
double the proportion of new female entrants
to 12% over two years.
Julie Westhorp, the chair of the British Women
Pilots’ Association, said she hoped that
McWilliams’ progression would inspire more
women to consider a career in aviation. She
went on: “Both the BWPA and easyJet are aware
of the importance of visible role models for
girls and young women when making career
choices and continue to work together to
encourage young women to consider a pilot
career.
“Kate’s achievement clearly demonstrates to
other young women that it is possible to
succeed as a pilot in commercial aviation. We
wish Kate continuing success in her career and
are delighted that she is now an excellent role
model for other females.”
Last week, McWilliams flew from Gatwick to
Malta alongside Luke Elsworth, who earlier this
year became the UK’s youngest pilot aged 19.
Michael Crowley, of Boca Raton, Florida, was
promoted to the role of captain with SkyKing, a
charter carrier, in 2012, at the age of 24. He
flies Boeing 737s between Miami and Cuba.

EFCC Have Reportedly Found N5 Billion Lodged In An Account Operated By The Daughter Of An Army General.


Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes
Commission (EFCC) have reportedly found N5 billion lodged
in an account operated by the daughter of an Army General.
An official of the EFCC who revealed this said that
investigations so far carried out into the account, showed
that N10 million was sometimes deposited 5 to 6 times
within a day.
The source stated that the Army general’s daughter is
under 30 and recently got married. The account officer, a
lady who manages the account was subsequently invited by
the EFCC.
She gave useful information which led to the invitation of
the Army General’s daughter towards the last week of
August. The source stated that she pleaded for more time
to enable her attend to her infant child.

The young nursing mother eventually turned up with her
mother, baby, husband and lawyer about two weeks ago.
And for two days, she faced interrogation though she was
not detained because she is a nursing mother.
“Details of the account show that cash deposits of about
N10 million were consistently paid into the account
sometimes five or six times a day. The money so far
deposited into that account and another in London should
well be over N5 billion”, the source said.
Investigators also discovered that even though the lady was
still a student in the United Kingdom, hundreds of
thousands of Pound Sterling were wired into the bank
account of a London based firm’s bank account for her.
Though the Army General’s daughter is currently on
administrative bail, she is however, expected to report back
for further interrogation next week.

Engr. Ukalizibe Sakwe, a chieftain of the Peoples
Democratic Party in Bayelsa state and also a bosom
friend of the Jonathans, who died in a motor accident in
2000. After his death, the ex president and wife adopted
his four children, Faith, Arewera Adolphus, Aruabai and
Abayola, and have taken responsibility for their welfare
and education over the past 14 years.
Happy birthday to Princess Eliana Godswill-Edward!

Paul Pogba Reveals His Happiness, After He Scored His First Goal For Manchester United


Paul Pogba has revealed his happiness, after he scored his
first goal for Manchester United, in their 4-1 win over
Leicester City on Saturday.
The Frenchman, who cost United a world-record
£89million this summer , rose highest to thump in a fourth,
as Jose Mourinho’s men crushed the Premier League
champions at Old Trafford.
Pogba, who was named Man of the Match, joked that he
hopes it is not his last goal for the Red Devils.
Asked for his reaction to the goal by Sky Sports, he replied:
“I’m very happy for the result and this goal and I hope it’s
not going to be the last one! So just carry on, keep doing
that, what we did today and after we can go and we have
our goals.
“We were very focused. We knew that was going to be
difficult. The first four games we were good, the two
games then [against City and Watford] after we knew were
going to be difficult, and now today we showed on the pitch
a big performance from the team. I feel happy and I want
to carry on like this.”
Pogba also insisted he did not pay attention to recent
criticism from the press during his goal drought.
“I don’t look at the newspapers,” he added.
“But I always say one thing, it’s at the end. So at the end
you will see.”
