Oyebajo, who died on Tuesday, November 7 at the Lagos State Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) in Ikeja, few weeks to his 71st birthday and was buried yesterday in Lagos, according to Muslim rites.His death occurred barely four months after the passage of Matthew Jacob, the first Director of PGAN.Oyebajo was one of the four Nigerian caddies selected by Chief Anthony Enahoro and sponsored by Nigerian Tobacco Company (NTC) in 1968 for a professional training in England.The others are Emmanuel Lawrence, Patrick Okpomu and Festus Makelemi.A year later, they formed the PGAN along with their English instructor, John Nosworthy, with Jacob as the administrator. Oyebajo was the Resident Professional at Ikeja Golf Club.Oyebajo captained West African team against Great Britain in the 1970sHe has trained and mentored several golfers and professional golfers across the country.Some of the prominent people he taught the art of golf included the first Military Governor of Lagos State, Brigadier Mobolaji Johnson (rtd), Otunba Olusola Adekanola, Senator Akin Odunsi and Regular Professional Gboyega Oyebanji.Known for his uprightness, Oyebajo was at different times a past Captain of the national team, former Head of Caretaker Committee and former Director of PGAN.While reacting to the news of the death yesterday, present Director of the professional Golfersâ€™ Association of Nigeria, Samson Lawal, said Oyebajoâ€™s death was a big shock to the body.â€œJamiu had a strong character and lived his life for golf. His passion and strong leadership qualities were readily available for the association and individual members to tap free. He was perhaps, the most respected member of PGAN.

ARCADIA, Calif. (Sept. 30 2016)–Well positioned while attentive to the pace from his number 10 post position, 6-year-old California-bred gelding Ambitious Brew sat a close third at the top of the stretch and out-gamed runner-up Richard’s Boy late to take Friday’s opening day Grade III, $100,000 Eddie D. Stakes (first division) under Mike Smith.Owned and bred by Pamela Ziebarth and trained by Marty Jones, Ambitious Brew got 6 ½ furlongs down Santa Anita’s all-new hillside turf course in 1:11.57.A winner of four of eight lifetime races down the hillside, Ambitious Brew was off at 5-1 in a field of 10 three year olds and up and paid $13.20, $5.40 and $4.20.“He jumped out of the gate well,” said Smith. “I was in a great spot from the word ‘go’ and able to get to the outside smoothly, without losing any ground. I’ve been blessed to ride him a lot and win on him a few times, but I have to say that this is his best race, by far. If I can get him to do that coming down the hill at the Breeders’ Cup (Turf Sprint, here on Nov. 5), that would be awesome.”A son of Tizbud out of the Forest Wildcat mare Kathwen, Ambitious Brew picked up $60,000 for the win, boosting his earnings to $499,225. Second, beaten a nose two years ago in the race named for retired Hall of Famer jockey Eddie Delahoussaye, Ambitious Brew notched his seventh win from 20 overall starts.“He loves the hill and he trains like it,” said Jones, whose stable is based at Los Alamitos. “We know he’s good and he’s a professional. I was a little nervous in the stretch, but Mike had him in a great spot.”Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Richard’s Boy pressed the pace throughout and proved second best, finishing a length in front of Irish-bred Hunt. Off at 6-1, Richard’s Boy paid $6.40 and $4.40.Hunt, who was ridden by Flavien Prat, rallied for third, finishing a half length in front of longshot Clever Royal. The second choice in the wagering at 5-2, he paid $2.40 to show.Lone Shipman, a highly accomplished filly who shipped in from New York for trainer Kiaran McLaughlin, ran mid-pack throughout under Irad Ortiz, Jr., and finished sixth as the 8-5 favorite.Fractions on the race were 21.79, 43.86 and 1:05.77.(Delahoussaye presented the trophy and was joined by family and friends, including fellow retired rider and best friend, Ray Sibille).The first division of the Eddie D. was carded as the sixth race on a nine-race program.
PITTSBURGH — The A’s might have skirted an injury issue with Blake Treinen, who was unavailable to pitch Saturday because of right elbow soreness.When Treinen reported to PNC Park on Sunday for the finale of a three-game series with the Pirates, whatever Treinen was feeling had mostly dissipated.Manager Bob Melvin had Saturday that Treinen would “probably” be unavailable for Sunday’s game because of the arm issues, and he held back Lou Trivino to close.Even though Treinen is feeling better, …

It is the fastest-growing field in machine learning. It uses many-layered Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) to learn levels of representation and abstraction that make sense of data such as images, sound, and textSo what makes it deep?Why is deep learning called deep? It is because of the structure of those ANNs. Four decades back, neural networks were only two layers deep as it was not computationally feasible to build larger networks. Now, it is common to have neural networks with 10+ layers and even 100+ layer ANNs are being tried upon.Using multiple levels of neural networks in deep learning, computers now have the capacity to see, learn, and react to complex situations as well or better than humans.Normally data scientists spend a lot of time in data preparation – feature extraction or selecting variables which are actually useful to predictive analytics. Deep learning does this job automatically and makes life easier.To spur this development, many technology companies have made their deep learning libraries as open source, like Google’s Tensorflow and Facebook’s open source modules for Torch. Amazon released DSSTNE on GitHub, while Microsoft also released CNTK — its open source deep learning toolkit — on GitHub.And so, today we see a lot of examples of deep learning around, including:Google Translate is using deep learning and image recognition to translate not only voice but written languages as well.With CamFind app, simply take a picture of any object and it uses mobile visual search technology to tell you what it is. It provides fast, accurate results with no typing necessary. Snap a picture, learn more. That’s it.All digital assistants like Siri, Cortana, Alexa & Google Now are using deep learning for natural language processing and speech recognition.Amazon, Netflix & Spotify are using recommendation engines using deep learning for the next best offers, movies or music.Google PlaNet can look at the photo and tell where it was taken.DCGAN is used for enhancing and completing the human faces.DeepStereo: Turns images from Street View into a 3D space that shows unseen views from different angles by figuring out the depth and color of each pixel.DeepMind’s WaveNet is able to generate speech which mimics any human voice that sounds more natural than the best existing Text-to-Speech systems.Paypal is using deep learning to prevent fraud in payments.Until now, deep learning has aided image classification, language translation, speech recognition and it can be used to solve any pattern recognition problem, and all of it is happening without human intervention.This is without a doubt a disruptive digital technology that is being used by more and more companies to create new business models.

TagsOpinionAbout the authorAndrew Maclean FollowShare the loveHave your say Anderson Exclusive: Karanka can lead Nottingham Forest beyond Clough shadowby Andrew Maclean10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveCross-generational comparisons of sporting greats are fervently argued across social media every day. In basketball, it’s Lebron James vs. Michael Jordan. In tennis, it’s Roger Federer vs. Pete Sampras. Amongst football players, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s abilities are constantly equated to those of Diego Maradona and Pele.But what about football managers? How do the current crop rank with the greatly revered, often mythologised, coaches of yesteryear?According to Viv Anderson, former Nottingham Forest manager Brian Clough was implementing ‘tiki-taka’ some 30 years before Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona revolution and would have no problem managing in today’s continental game.Charismatic, intelligent, and at times controversial, Clough revolutionised Forest during his 18-year tenure at the club. It might seem hard to fathom for fans relatively new to the Premier League, but in the late 1970’s, Forest were the kings of England and Europe – twice.Given English football’s reputation as physical and direct, it would be easy to assume Forest scrapped their way to glory. But that wasn’t Cloughie’s style. He despised the long-ball tactics of his contemporaries, having once famously said: “if God had wanted us to play football in the clouds, he’d have put grass up there.”Anderson started both European Cup finals against Malmo in 1979 and Hamburg in 1980 and said it was Clough’s unorthodox tactics in the latter that helped steer Forest to victory.When asked if Clough could excel in today’s game, Anderson told Tribalfootball:”Absolutely 100 per cent. Because he believed in playing football in the right way, the pass and move. They were always entertaining. Although I think he would have to adapt because you have to do a lot more media than back in his day. “You have to remember he played one up front in a European Cup final 30 odd years ago, so he was forward thinking more than any other manager than I can think in those times. I can remember playing in that final with five midfielders and one up front and we went ‘what is this?’, but we got on and managed to win. Would he able to manage now? Yes in a heartbeat.”I think Forest had a team of people who were comfortable on the ball, play it through and it wasn’t kick long or long balls, it was always to feet and I think it’s very, very similar to how Pep Guardiola plays his football. So I think there are a lot of similarities to how he [Clough] played and how Pep Guardiola plays.”Clough remonstrating in the City Ground dugout still burns strong in the memory of older Forest fans. To them, the Middlesbrough native, who passed away in 2004, represents the ever-passing golden years, a time when the club were feared and respected, a stark contrast to the last two decades spent outside of the English top-flight.In Anderson’s opinion, Forest’s struggles derive from their failure to recover from Clough’s departure in 1993, comparing their plight to the current situation at Manchester United, who in December sacked their third manager since the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.Forest have made the play-offs only twice since their return to the Championship in 2009/10, but supporters remain hopeful that this could be their season. Under the leadership of former Real Madrid defender Aitor Karanka, who lead Middlesbrough to promotion in 2015/16, Forest are four points off the play-off spots in seventh. And with further investment from Greek owner Evangelos Marinakis this month, Anderson believes the club can return to where he believes they belong.”Its like Manchester United. The Cloughie shoes and the Alex Ferguson shoes are big shoes to fill,” added Anderson, who played over 300 times for Forest.”And they’ve had several managers, both clubs, trying to get the right balance. Hopefully Karanka is the right man to take Forest forward. “I think it helps that they’ve got some money with this Greek owner. So hopefully he can put a little bit more money in to get them where they want to be because a side like Nottingham Forest should be in the Premier League and they’ve been out of their far too long. So hopefully he’s the one to guide them forward.”Forest will face Premier League giants Chelsea in the third round of the FA Cup at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.Viv Anderson MBE was speaking to Tribalfootball to promote the partnership between ‘Playonpro’ and ‘REDSTRIKE’.Click here to find out more information on Playonpro.

ROME – The head of one of Italy’s ruling parties insisted Friday that the country won’t exit the euro currency bloc nor exceed its targeted deficit limit, dismissing the European Union’s worries about the populist government’s budget strategy.Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio, who heads the main party in the five-month old coalition, told foreign correspondents in Rome that he “guarantees” that domestic spending cuts plus economic growth spurred by public investment will keep the country from overshooting its deficit target for next year, as EU officials fear.“There’s still a lot to cut,” Di Maio said. “The guarantee we’re giving is that 2.4 per cent (of GDP) is the maximum deficit term” Italy will run up next year.He brushed off concern that Italy might incur EU sanctions if it sticks to its deficit target.Meanwhile, the head of the 19-member eurozone’s finance meetings sidestepped questions on whether Italy might be hit with a EU fine.“One thing at a time,” said Mario Centeno, Portugal’s finance minister who heads the so-called eurogroup and had just emerged from talks in Rome with Italy’s economy minister, Giovanni Tria. Centeno preferred to speak of an overarching concern in Brussels.“Beyond the rules, sustainability is the heart of the discussion,” Centeno told reporters.Tria gave no indication Italy would budge on its budget plans to please the EU.Flanking Centeno, Tria said that if avoiding sanctions were the goal, “we would have to make a very violent budget manoeuvr of fiscal restriction.” That, he argued, “would be suicide for an economy in marked slowdown.”Italy’s economic growth has been sub-par for years.There are doubts within Italy, too, about whether the government can achieve its economic growth goals with its proposed budget.An Italian central bank official, deputy director Luigi Federico Signorini, told lawmakers Friday that the government’s growth forecasts for next year are “ambitious.”The EU expects the Italian economy to grow only 1.2 per cent next year, the lowest in the eurozone. The Italian government expects a more optimistic 1.5 per cent growth.
LONDON — A U.N. human rights expert says cuts to Britain’s social support are causing misery for poorer citizens.Philip Alston, the U.N. rapporteur on poverty, concluded Friday that Britain’s government remains in a state of denial about the impact of benefit cuts and says the country’s departure from the European Union could make things worse should the economy weaken as expected.Alston says “government policies have inflicted great misery unnecessarily” on the working poor, single mothers, the disabled and children.The U.K. government enacted spending cuts in welfare as part of austerity programs to balance the books after the 2008 financial crisis.Real terms funding for the Department of Work and Pensions, which oversees welfare, is expected to fall more than 40 per cent from pre-crisis levels by 2020.The Associated Press
