In 2016, Conor Moore was making a living selling cell phones in his hometown of Mullingar, Ireland. Four years later he found himself over 4,000 miles away, at Jack Nicklaus’ charity event in South Florida. He even scored a seat at the 18-time major champion’s table. And no, he wasn’t there to sell Jack a data plan. Moore was the evening’s main event, performing his hilarious impressions for a crowd filled with golf’s elite. It was just the latest surreal moment on the quick-witted Irishman’s journey from YouTube sensation to legitimate comedy star and host of “The Conor Moore Show,” which premiered last week, and airs Tuesdays exclusively on GolfPass. “You may know me,” Moore says in the first episode’s opening segment. But it’s more likely you know of him. GOLFPASS All Star Golf: Open champ Palmer vs. Masters champ Player in 1961 Arnold Palmer won The Open in 1961. Gary Player won the Masters that year. The two battle in this ’61 edition of “All Star Golf.” He’s a bit of an enigma that way. If you’ve followed professional golf at all over the last couple of years, it’s likely you’re one of the millions of views he’s racked up on his videos, doing spot-on impressions of everyone from Tiger Woods to Rory McIlroy to Ian Poulter. Now those characters – and plenty more – are coming to you on a weekly basis, courtesy of his new show. It features a comedic take on golf news, sketches about current events and interviews with some of the biggest names in the game, all while letting Moore be himself, a novel idea for the impersonator. “It’s been way beyond my expectations. The level of professionalism and detail that has gone into making the show has been such a massive help,” he said. “So my nerves have turned more into excitement than anything else. I’m excited to see where this is going to go.” It’s a bit weird to call Moore one of the fastest rising stars in the game, but these are strange, unprecedented times. While the coronavirus pandemic has shut down businesses worldwide, including professional golf, Moore has embraced the challenge of putting together a weekly show, with little or no real golf news to talk about. When social restrictions eventually ease up, he’ll have Golf Channel studios to call his playground, but for now, he’s doing it all from his makeshift apartment studio in Orlando, Florida. WATCH EP. 2 OF “THE CONOR MOORE SHOW” FOR FREE, TUES. NIGHT ON GOLFPASS “We talked long and hard about, is it the right time do the show? Yes, you need golf to do a golf show, but at the same time, my work is in the land of make believe. I have that opportunity that most people don’t have, I don’t need it, I can create it. And that’s what’s cool about it,” said Moore. “Obviously it would be great if it came back as soon as possible with the restrictions for health and safety, but we’re still confident we have plenty to work with.” Plenty to work with? That wasn’t always the case for Moore. At the urging of friends, what started as private videos of his impressions of local soccer stars eventually turned into semi-viral hits in Ireland, with Moore’s first videos online garnering 10s of thousands of views. “And straight away, I had my lightbulb moment,” he said. To say he jumped in with both feet after that switch flipped would be an understatement. After initially getting turned down by an Irish entertainment company for being too limited in his range of characters, Moore doubled down, immediately quitting his job in sales and focusing on his new craft full time. That same company hired him four months later. “I started practicing voices and I realized then, you can actually get better at this,” said Moore. “This isn’t just something that you’re good at. It’s something that you have to work at.” A couple years and millions of YouTube hits later, Moore turned his attention to the stars of the 2018 Masters. That’s where he first debuted several of the characters that now define the comedian. And the rest, as they say in showbiz, is history. Conor Moore plays “Get the answers wrong” at API He’s parodied nearly all of golf’s big events since then, getting to know the very players he’s been lampooning along the way, even turning his Tiger imitation into a commercial … with Tiger. “Everyone I’ve met has been so cool. I’ve met Sergio [Garcia], he was laughing at his own laugh. When I met McIlroy, I went to shake his hand and he just started laughing at me,” said Moore. “Before we did the ad, Tiger made me do the voice in front of him and then went, ‘Dude, you sound just like me.’” Despite what movies like “Happy Gilmore” and “Tin Cup” would lead you to believe, professional golf and comedy traditionally go together like oil and water, orange juice and toothpaste, bathtubs and toasters. Sure, guys give each other a hard time in the locker room, behind closed doors. But covering the game from a comedic angle, especially at the expense of the players, is basically unheard of. That’s what makes “The Conor Moore Show” so unique; it’s just an extension of its host, breaking the mold at every turn. He knows he’s living a dream and doesn’t want to be woken up. “You just pinch yourself sometimes,” he said. “I pinch myself and get right back to work.”
Rapid bacterial infection test reduces unnecessary antibiotic useA new study in The Lancet shows that C-reactive protein (CRP) testing performed at the point of care safely reduced antibiotic use in patients with acute respiratory infections in Vietnam, without compromising patients’ recovery.In a randomized, controlled trial performed at primary care centers in northern Vietnam, researchers from the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Hanoi assigned more than 2,000 patients who had at least one symptom of an acute respiratory infection into one of two groups: One that received a point-of-care test for C-reactive protein (a biomarker for bacterial infection), and a control group that received routine care.The primary end point of the study was the number of patients in the two groups receiving antibiotics within 2 weeks of enrollment. The expectation, based on studies performed in Europe, was that CRP testing would reduce antibiotic prescribing by 20%.Overall, the researchers found that 541 of 908 patients in the CRP-guided group (64%) used an antibiotic within 14 days of follow-up, compared with 738 out of 947 patients in the control group (78%), with significant differences seen in both children and adults. This constituted an 18% reduction in antibiotic prescribing.In both groups, clinical recovery rates were similar. Adverse events were rare, with no deaths and 14 hospitalizations.The study is significant because it’s the first to gauge the effects of CRP testing on antibiotic prescribing in a low- or middle-income country , the authors wrote. The findings indicate that the intervention—which has the potential to be scaled up with affordable and reliable CRP tests becoming more available—could be effective in countries with resource constraints.”With this easy-to-use tool, primary healthcare providers can safely limit the unnecessary antibiotic use for viral respiratory infections,” investigator Nguyen Van Kinh, MD, PhD, of the National Hospital for Tropical Disease in Hanoi said in a news release. “The study provides important evidence for simple solutions in antibiotic stewardship programmes.”Aug 2 Lancet Glob Health study Aug 2 Oxford University news release Patient sharing among hospitals might foster spread of CREA new study indicates that hospitals that are more likely to share patients with other hospitals have higher rates of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE).In the study, published in Clinical Infectious Diseases on Aug 1, researchers used a social network analysis of 185 Illinois hospitals in a statewide patient-sharing network to evaluate the influence of patient sharing on hospital-specific rates of CRE.What they found was that hospitals that were more connected or central—ie, were more likely to share patients with other hospitals—had higher burdens of CRE, and that each additional hospital connection increased that burden. In rural counties, for example, each hospital connection was associated with a 6% increase in the CRE rate. In Chicago and other urban parts of the state, the associated increase was 3%.In addition, sharing four or more patients with a long-term acute care hospital, where CRE infections are particularly problematic, was also linked to higher CRE rates.Although the study does not prove that more interconnectedness causes higher CRE rates, the authors said the finding have immediate public health implications. “Our results provide an important way of identifying hospitals at highest risk of CRE exposure,” the authors wrote.An accompanying editorial adds that the study highlights the need for greater understanding of the role that hospital transfers play in infection control, and that the findings have “profound implications” for infectious disease surveillance efforts.Aug 1 Clin Infect Dis abstract Aug 1 Clin Infect Dis commentary Reports: 90 now hospitalized for suspected anthrax in SiberiaSeveral news organizations reported yesterday that 90 people are now hospitalized in the Yamal-Nenets area of Siberia and a 12-year-old boy is dead from suspected anthrax infection. So far, 20 cases have been confirmed.The New York Times reports the boy’s death is the first from anthrax in 75 years. A very warm summer has melted a layer of permafrost in Yamal-Nenets, revealing carcasses of reindeer that may be releasing Bacillus anthracis, the bacterium that causes anthrax, into soil. B anthracis can infect and kill humans and animals. Authorities in Siberia say 2,300 reindeer have died from suspected anthrax infection this summer, while more than 3,000 have been vaccinated against anthrax as of Tuesday.Humans contract anthrax when they touch infected animals, inhale spores, or eat contaminated foods. The 90 people hospitalized are nomadic reindeer herders, and authorities suspect they had close contact with sick or dead animals. Earlier this week Popular Science reported that the reindeer carcasses were likely from 1941, the last year a major anthrax outbreak occurred in that area of Siberia. Aug 2 New York Times story
Goals from Wade Elliott, Sam Baldock and Stephen Pearson sealed the fate of the home team just two years after they were beaten in the League One play-offs.Luke Freeman’s late free kick spoiled hopes of back-to-back away clean sheets, but did nothing to detract from the party atmosphere at one end of the Lamex Stadium.Steve Cotterill made three changes to his side fortunate to escape with three points against Stevenage’s fellow strugglers Notts County on Good Friday.Tyrone Barnett was handed his first start in two months alongside the division’s leading marksman Baldock, with Jay Emmanuel-Thomas dropped to the bench and Martin Paterson left out completely as the unlucky sixth loan player.Elsewhere, there were recalls for Brendan Moloney and Simon Gillett, as Scott Wagstaff took his seat among the substitutes.With the hosts desperate for a win in their fight to avoid the drop, it was City who created the first chance.As Baldock sneaked in behind the defence unopposed, his square pass towards Barnett was cut out but rolled invitingly back into his path for a first time shot well saved by Chris Day at his near post.It would prove a busy opening to the game for Day, who denied Baldock again with his legs soon after, before Derrick Williams’ header was blocked on the line by a keeper making his third decent save inside the first nine minutes.But Baldock remained the most likely, again coming close when meeting Greg Cunningham’s cross with a header only carried wide by a slight deflection.It was all City, with Baldock intent on adding to his 23 league goals sooner rather than later. The skipper found himself clean through when Barnett’s knockdown invited a piercing first-time pass between the centre-backs for Baldock to run on to and shoot low against the legs of Day.The visiting trio combined again when Baldock’s pass preceded an Elliott cross glanced on by Barnett towards the bottom corner, where Day was again on hand to preserve an unlikely clean sheet.It was a first half City had total control of, finally getting the lead their dominance deserved three minutes before the interval.This time Baldock dropped deeper to initiate the attack with an excellent sweeping pass out to the right, which Moloney collected on the run and crossed low for Elliott to convert at the far post.There was still time for a similar opening to present itself before the half-time whistle sounded, as another Moloney cross was missed by Baldock at the near post before Cunningham struck the side-netting from a difficult angle.The hosts finally posed a threat in stoppage time, as Peter Hartley tried his luck from distance with a powerful shot tipped over by Simon Moore before Luke Jones met the ensuing corner with a header cleared from the goal line by Elliott.With 45 minutes to save their season, a Stevenage reaction was to be expected.Substitute Lucas Akins came close with a shot on the turn only to drag the chance wide, but a sustained spell of pressure was not forthcoming. Instead City doubled their advantage on 66 minutes, as Baldock finally got the goal his day’s work merited.With the home team piling men forward, Moloney’s flick around the corner left the striker all alone with only Day to beat – this time converting with a low shot under the goalkeeper.Akins twice came close to halving the deficit, seeing a backheel saved by Moore before a fierce shot struck his own team-mate, before substitute Pearson put the result beyond doubt with a well-taken third.Within two minutes of coming on, the Scot latched on to Barnett’s pass to run clear and slide the ball past Day and into the bottom corner for his first goal in 17 months.The talented Freeman curled an impressive free kick into the top corner with five minutes left, but a lack of support from those around him ultimately left Stevenage well short both on the day and throughout the season.

Defending Corporate Area and all-island senior schoolgirl netball champions Excelsior High are off to a good start this year. In their first match in the second round, of the ISSA urban competition on Wednesday, they defeated Merl Grove 48-14 in a Group Two encounter at the Leila Robinson Courts. After winning six games in the preliminary round coach Christopher Smart was pleased with his team’s good start in the second round. “It was an okay win for us. The opponents were not as strong as I had hoped, but our girls did reasonably well. I started a strong team to see what they were going to look like in the second round, but as I have said, my opponents were not strong enough, so we are looking forward to Friday’s game against Camperdown,” said Smart, who thinks the east Kingston-based girls will give his team a tougher challenge. With the impressive Rocoya Douglas at the goal-shooting position in partnership with goal attack Rayanna Myers, Excelsior dominated the first two quarters 13-3 and 30-5 before resting most of their top players for the remainder of the game to pull off their easy win. Camperdown have also been doing well. They joined the defending champions atop the group with six points after getting by Ardenne 44-10. Former champions the Queen’s School were also winners after defeating St Andrew High 52-37. Last year’s beaten finalists Gaynstead, St Catherine High and St Andrew Technical were winners in Group One action. The Dalton Hinds-coached Gaynstead outclassed Jose Marti 53-3, while St Catherine overcame a stubborn Holy Childhood 39-31 and STATHS squeezed out a narrow one-goal win over Meadowbrook with a 22-21 victory .
Medical wearable devices have a pivotal role to play in empowering patients to take ownership of their own health.But overcoming the medical community’s skepticism remains a daunting challenge for medical device makers, as related by mHealth Intelligence.One medical wearable maker says it is incumbent on both the wearable technology firms and the medical community to bridge the patient-doctor gap in order to improve patients’ health.David Albert, MD, is the founder and chief medical officer of AliveCor, a San Francisco-based developer of mobile ECG device Kardia Mobile. He says that healthcare providers have indicated that the clinical community will not accept consumer-facing medicals wearables until the data is relevant and reliable. He cites the recent American Medical Association comments that the digital health space is awash with “snake oil salesmen,”Despite doctors’ reluctance to engage with new consumer-facing technology, consumers are flocking to the devices that include fitness bands, smartwatches and other types of monitors. Albert says that mHealth companies with strong clinical track records like AliveCor are not waiting until doctors finally give the green light, but are instead trying to empower patients to play a role in their own health and welfare.He says both patients and the medical community “have to understand that (patients) have to be integral in their own care.”“We’re entering a new phase of patient centricity,” he said. “Patients are becoming more and more responsible for their own healthcare, and that creates opportunities for engagement.”Medical community needs to accept wearables, once validatedIf the medical community can accept that clinically validated wearable devices have a place in the healthcare system, Albert says many wearables will prove to be more cost-effective and accurate than traditional care pathways. Once the medical system recognizes the opportunity, he predicts the flood gates will open as healthcare providers use the new technology to reign in escalating healthcare costs.Meanwhile, if the medical wearables can improve patient health while remaining convenient and easy to operate, consumers will continue embracing the new technology as never before.He says that this approach “draws a straight line between the patient and the doctor.”And should that come to pass, Albert says that doctors, patients, the healthcare system and device makers will all end up big winners.“We’re in the patient empowerment business now,” Albert says.

Twitter/Coach KMike Krzyzewski was not happy with his Blue Devils’ Monday night loss to Syracuse at Cameron Indoor Stadium. During his post-game press conference, he referred to the end of the game, which featured a few controversial calls that helped the Orange, as “amazing.” Of course, many fans found comedy in that statement because of Duke’s reputation for getting questionable calls throughout the years. North Carolina’s SportsChannel 8 made a very funny remix of K’s presser, using his quotes over Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak hit “Amazing,” spliced with clips of many, many controversial calls that have helped the Blue Devils over the years. We’re sure ACC fans, especially supporters of the Tar Heels, will appreciate this one.[SportsChannel 8]
