Written by February 23, 2021 /Sports News – National Tiger Woods ‘calm,’ ‘lucid’ when police arrived following rollover car crash in California FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailAndrew Redington/Getty ImagesBY EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC NEWS(LOS ANGELES) — Golfing great Tiger Woods was seriously hurt in a rollover car crash in Southern California on Tuesday morning, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department.The crash took place at about 7:12 a.m. on the border of Rolling Hills estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, the sheriff’s office said.Woods was the driver and only occupant, and the only car involved, the sheriff’s office said.The Los Angeles County Fire Department responded and used a Halligan tool and ax to extricate him, Chief Daryl Osby said during a press briefing Tuesday afternoon. He was extricated through a windshield and taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.Woods was transported in serious condition, with injuries to both his legs, Osby said. Woods was conscious and able to communicate at the scene, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said at the briefing. He was unable to stand on his own, authorities said.Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, said the golfer suffered multiple leg injuries and was undergoing surgery, ESPN reported.The area of the rollover has a “high frequency” of accidents, Villanueva said during a press briefing Tuesday afternoon. The car — a 2021 Genesis GV80 mid-size SUV — was found several hundred feet away from the center divider. There were no skid marks, and the amount the car traveled indicates it was traveling at a “greater speed than normal,” the sheriff said.Investigators will be determining if distracted driving was a factor, the sheriff said. There was no evidence of impairment, he said.The car hit the center median, crossed into the opposite lane and then hit the curb and a tree, Villanueva said. It also rolled over several times. The front end was “totally destroyed,” and the airbag was deployed, he said.“Thankfully, the interior was more or less intact, which kind of gave him the cushion to survive what otherwise would have been a fatal crash,” Villanueva said.Woods also was wearing a seatbelt, which authorities said may have also played a part in saving his life.“I’ve seen fatal traffic collisions, so I will say it’s very fortunate that Mr. Woods was able to come out of this,” Deputy Carlos Gonzalez, who was the first unit on the scene, told reporters.The Lomita Sheriff’s Station will be conducting a traffic investigation, which could take several weeks to complete, Villanueva said.“When I arrived on scene, Mr. Woods was seated in the driver’s seat,” Gonzalez said. “I made contact with him, and I ensured that he was able to speak to me. At that time, he seemed as though he was still calm and lucid.”Gonzalez added, “I kept Mr. Woods calm. … I asked him what his name was. He told me his name was Tiger, and that moment I immediately recognized him.”There was a second accident following Woods’ crash — “People being lookie-loos,” the sheriff said — that had no injuries.The PGA Tour said in a statement, “We are awaiting further information when he comes out of surgery. On behalf of the PGA Tour and our players, Tiger is in our prayers and will have our full support as he recovers.”Fellow golfing legend Jack Nicklaus tweeted, “We are deeply concerned. We want to offer him our heartfelt support and prayers at this difficult time. Please join us in wishing Tiger a successful surgery and all the best for a full recovery.”Woods is second all-time in major victories, with 15, behind only Nicklaus’ 18 wins.Gold medal-winning skier Lindsey Vonn, who previously dated Woods, tweeted, “Praying for TW right now.”Woods hosted The Genesis Invitational in Los Angeles last week. He wasn’t playing as he’s been recovering from recent back surgery.Former NBA player Dwyane Wade posted photos to Instagram Tuesday of him on a golf course with Woods on Monday.ABC’s Alex Stone reports for ABC News Radio: This is a developing story.

The Germany-based supermarket chain Lidl has announced that it intends to create a new scholarship for students at the University of Oxford studying German at a graduate level, as well as establish a support fund for students on their year abroad.Beginning in the 2018-19 academic year, Lidl will provide for one student working towards a Masters in Modern German and will also sponsor a new competition, the Lidl Undergraduate Prize in German Studies.Chair of the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, Professor Ian Watson, said: “We are delighted that, at a time when the teaching of modern languages in the UK is facing considerable challenges, a major German company in the shape of Lidl has stepped forward to offer its support.“The package of support that Lidl is so generously donating will allow us to raise the profile of the subject of German at Oxford at all stages of the undergraduate degree as well as for postgraduate study.”Oxford’s first Lidl Graduate Scholar, Clara Coiler, said: “I am very grateful to Lidl for giving me the opportunity to study at Oxford. Through their generosity, I hope to deepen my knowledge and enrich my contributions to the study of German literature and culture.”Although Lidl is a multi-national business and began operating in the UK in 1973, the company still requires the use of German at management level, and Professor Watson describes this as “a reminder that a thorough understanding of foreign languages and cultures is of practical as well as intellectual benefit.”Lidl is keen on encouraging German education in the UK, where the study of the German language seems to be under threat – the study of German at A-Level falling by 16.5% in the UK last year.
Hovis is to make at least 115 workers redundant as it attempts to reduce its debts.Owner Premier Foods will close the rolls line at its bakery at Aspull in Wigan later this month, resulting in more than 90 job losses, while 25 staff lost their jobs when the Martland Mill distribution depot recently closed.As reported in British Baker (26 February, pg 5) Premier Foods was forced to review its morning goods business earlier this year, following rumours that it had lost a large crumpet contract. Bakers Food & Allied Workers Union organising regional secretary, Ian Hodson, blamed the supermarkets for the problem. “We all want cheap food but we want it provided by skilled workers,” he said. “In their search for cheaper contracts, the retai-lers should consider what their actions are doing.”Hodson said he was disappointed with the way Premier had handled the redundancies and the fact staff were being encouraged to sign compromise agreements. “Some of them may not sign and could decide to go to an employment tribunal instead.”The closures will cost Premier Foods £4m, but will go some way to reducing its debts by £100m this year, said the company.It follows the announcement of buoyant figures in its interim management statement, showing Q1 value growth for Hovis of 4.7% and volume growth of 8.5%, with market share up 0.5% to 25.6%. Total branded sales increased by 1.6% in the quarter. More promotional activity from its competitors was expected to result in lower market share in Q2, said Premier. However, it was confident that its own marketing and promotional initiatives would return Hovis to share growth in the second half of the year.Premier chief executive Robert Schofield said: “Assuming no adverse change in the trading environment, we expect the benefits of our strategy to result in further progress in 2010.”

Junior John Rozema was initially scared not only for the result of the game, but for the well- being of Crist. Even though there was time left on the clock, Schultz said he knew the Michigan touchdown had sealed Notre Dame’s fate. Irish fans had strong hopes for victory earlier in the quarter after quarterback Dayne Crist connected with Kyle Rudolph for a 95-yard touchdown pass with 3:41 left in the game that put Notre Dame ahead 24-21. Hefferon said part of the reason people seemed to be dreading the outcome of the game after the first half was the lack of tenacity by Notre Dame after Crist left. “Denard Robinson is talented, but he seemed like a ball hog. He was selfish, like he thought he should be doing everything,” she said. “Notre Dame played more like a team.” “We didn’t know why all of a sudden [freshman quarterback] Tommy Rees was in,” he said. “The stadium needs to announce what is going on because no one had any idea why Crist was out.” Sophomore Emily Hefferon said she felt the touchdown gave Notre Dame a shot at victory, but once the Wolverines got the ball back things started to turn for the worse for the Irish. “I almost fell off the railing from jumping up when Notre Dame scored,” he said. “It was wild.” “Obviously that last throw that ended the game from Crist that landed in the audience, that was soul-crushing,” he said. “We will come back strong next week against Michigan State.” Carter, however, said while Robinson seemed to be putting his success on the field ahead of his teams. Rozema also said it might not have necessarily been a good idea to bring back Crist in the second half. Notre Dame had one final series to score, but on the last play Crist tossed the ball long into the stands. Rozema said while the final play left a bitter aftertaste, he is looking forward to the next Notre Dame game against Michigan State. “I was worried about Crist. I thought he was seriously injured,” he said. “He had his helmet off with the baseball cap on, and he just seemed very far away from the action.” “Going into halftime, Michigan had all the momentum,” she said. “I didn’t think it was going to be close. I thought for sure, we were going to lose.” “I don’t know much about injuries, but it seemed like Notre Dame was taking a lot of risks with their players,” he said. “There was a run by Crist that just looked dangerous. If he had been seriously injured, that could have ended our season.” “Denard Robinson was moving the ball fast, but I was impressed with our defense, especially compared to last year,” she said “There were a lot of close defensive plays that we came out on top of.” The Irish looked sharp on the first offensive series, which ended when Crist ran the ball into the end zone for a touchdown. However, Crist had to leave the game for the rest of the first half after experiencing blurry vision in his right eye. Schultz said Irish fans experienced unnecessary confusion when they realized Crist was not behind the center the next time Notre Dame had the ball. “They did not leave us with enough time to score. It was like, ‘Wow, this just happened two years in a row,’” he said. However, Notre Dame scored 10 points on a touchdown and a field goal in the third quarter. After the downpours prior to the game and the overcast skies through the first half, the skies begin to clear. Junior Katie Carter said the play of the Fighting Irish in the second half was more upbeat, which coincided with the change in weather. “Michigan was on the ball the whole way,” she said. “I just didn’t see as much of an effort from Notre Dame in the first half.” “Michigan had the momentum for a while. But when the sun came out and hit the stadium, and we started to score, it just felt like we were meant to win,” she said. The final run by Robinson capped off an amazing day for the Michigan quarterback, who set a school record for total offense with 502 yards. Despite Robinson’s play, Hefferon felt the Notre Dame defense played well. “When Rudolph scored our last touchdown, I felt pure euphoria,” she said. “But once Michigan started moving the ball I started to feel dread. It was like we couldn’t get over the hump of those final minutes.” Sophomore Michael Schultz said the energy inside the stadium after the touchdown was electric. For the second year in a row, the Michigan Wolverines scored a go-ahead touchdown in the final minute of play. With 27 seconds left on the game clock, Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson sealed the come-from-behind victory with a two-yard touchdown run, sending Notre Dame fans home disappointed. Michigan led coming out of halftime 21-7, and Hefferon said initially she felt things could only get worse for the Irish. Notre Dame fans experienced football déjà vu on Saturday.
In a Wednesday panel discussion, professors discussed perceptions of the humanities as a declining field that is becoming less attractive to college students. The panel, sponsored by the Nanovic Institute, was titled “Humanities in peril: does Notre Dame have an answer?” Susannah Monta, associate professor of English, moderated the panel. In her opening remarks, she said the perceived crisis in humanities is not necessarily negative. “Crisis can also mean a turning point,” Monta said. “We must not stop at the colloquial understanding.” John McGreevy, dean of the College of Arts and Letters, said the existence of a crisis in the humanities depends on how one examines the question. “This crisis both exists and does not,” McGreevy said. It is real because there are fewer opportunities for graduate students in this area of study and fewer students are enrolling in humanities courses, he said. However, there is also no crisis because degrees in the humanities still provide an excellent base for students looking to enter the fields of law, medicine and business. Overall, the panelists agreed the humanities are not compelling for students due to a lack of understanding about what the field encompasses and a lack of vibrant humanities programs. Film, Television and Theatre professor Peter Holland said the humanities remain strong at Notre Dame because of the University’s Catholic identity. Humanities courses such as theology and philosophy are in the College of Arts and Letters, making them all interconnected. McGreevy said Notre Dame’s philosophy and theology requirements highlight the University’s commitment to the humanities. “Our requirements make humanities more important at Notre Dame, which is unusual when viewed nationally,” McGreevy said. History professor Felipe Fernandez-Armesto said it is especially important to emphasize the interconnectedness between disciplines in the humanities. Universities could increase unity between areas of study by eliminating departments, he said. “We must focus on the unity of knowledge,” Fernandez-Armestro said.
