QPR manager Harry Redknapp says he is relishing the prospect of taking his side to Anfield.Relegated Rangers will be the visitors for Jamie Carragher’s final match before the Reds stalwart retires.It will also mark the end of a dismal season for the R’s, who are heading back to the Championship after two years in the top flight.“There’s no better place to play than Anfield. It’s the best atmosphere anywhere,” said Redknapp.“When that crowd sing [You’ll Never Walk Alone] before a game it’s a fantastic place.“And it’s Carragher’s last game, so it’s a good game to play in and the players can test themselves against good players.“It’s a fantastic football club with probably the most knowledgeable fans in the country. It’s a great club with great tradition.”See also:QPR players plan Carragher 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

5 June 2013 South African epidemiologist Salim Abdool Karim has been appointed chair of the newly established UNAids Scientific Expert Panel, which will advise on scientific discoveries and strategic needs in Aids research. Karim has conducted research on HIV epidemiology, pathogenesis, prevention and treatment over the past 25 years and holds academic appointments at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in Durban and at Columbia University in New York. He is also director of the Centre for the Aids Programme of Research in South Africa, as well as the interim president of the South African Medical Research Council. “In the 30 years since HIV was identified, the progress made by science has been extraordinary and its benefits have been felt far beyond those directly affected by HIV,” UNAids executive director Michel Sidibe said at a UNAids Scientific Symposium in Durban on Monday. “To reach the end of the Aids epidemic, we need to continue to embrace science and innovation and I am delighted that Professor Karim has agreed to take on the leadership of our new UNAids scientific panel.” The panel’s functions will include convening international scientific consultations to facilitate knowledge sharing and advising UNAids on how it can adjust its policies to best shape global Aids response. The symposium hosted in Durban was the first of these consultations and was held under the theme “Scientific advances from the ‘Mississippi baby’: Implications for public health programmes on mother to child transmission of HIV”. Experts discussed ways to improve early diagnosis of HIV in new-born children and implications of starting them on antiretroviral therapy early, and the insight gained will be passed on from the panel to UNAids to aid future solutions. “Science has the power to illuminate the future path to defeating Aids,” Karim said. “I am humbled by this appointment and look forward to this new challenge.” Part of the challenge will also involve analysing the relevance of new research and findings and how these can be rapidly implemented to prevent new infections and improve the lives of people living with HIV.

One camp — the one focusing on energy efficiency — gets most of the world’s attention. The other camp — natural builders who favor materials like mud, straw, and sticks — usually gets short shrift.My roots are firmly in the natural building community. When I was a poor hippie in the 1970s, I built a house from materials I gathered in the woods or found at the dump. Most of my Vermont friends were doing the same thing back then.In my opinion, today’s green builders need to pay attention to natural builders. In most cases, a small cob-walled house with hand-split cedar shake roofing has a much smaller carbon footprint than a typical zero-energy home. (For an extended discussion of the split in the green building community, see “Low-Road Buildings Are Homeowner-Friendly.”)At GBA, I’ve tried (and mostly failed) to highlight the accomplishments of natural builders. In my attempts, I’ve swum against the tide: most of the questions posted by GBA readers concern energy efficiency, not the use of natural materials.With that background in mind, I’m happy to take this opportunity to recommend a book, Mudgirls Manifesto, that focuses on natural building. (Mudgirls Manifesto is available from New Society Publishers for $19.50.)If you look at American residential builders who are now in their 60s and 70s, you’ll find that a large percentage of this group started out as hippie builders. The cohort of hippie builders who began working in the late 1960s and 1970s created many cultural ripples: for example, we were largely responsible for the success of Fine Homebuilding magazine and the Journal of Light Construction.As part of the counterculture, many of us were unapologetically out to change the world.

“He was saying some things that I can’t really repeat here,” Woods said. “Then I went into the restroom and proceeded to say the same things over and over to myself. And then came out and I felt a lot better.”Woods called it a grind, and it was until his tee shot on the par-3 16th hole almost went in. It became a coronation on the final holes, as roars echoed with each birdie and the inevitability of it all started to sink in.The crowd was thrilled, even those who had to listen to figure out what was happening out of sight. So, it seems, was almost every sports hero around the world.Tom Brady was watching from his couch and tweeted his congratulations. Serena Williams took a break from partying at fellow tennis player Caroline Wozniacki’s bachelorette party to see it all unfold.“I am literally in tears watching,” Williams tweeted. “This is Greatness like no other.”President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama weighed in, and so did Steph Curry, calling it the greatest comeback in sports. At the Orioles game in Baltimore they played a highlight of Woods on the 18th green during a break between innings as the crowd cheered.Woods himself screamed out in sheer joy after sinking his final putt, and no one could blame him. It had been a long, tortured path back to the top and the way it all ended at the place that he loves best couldn’t have been scripted in a Hollywood movie.It had been 14 long years since his last Masters win. Eleven years since his last major championship.And now the question becomes not can Woods win again, but whether he can beat the record of 18 major championships set by Jack Nicklaus.“I really haven’t thought about that yet,” Woods said. “I’m sure that I’ll probably think of it going down the road. But right now, it’s a little soon, and I’m just enjoying 15.” Twitter buzz: The world reacts to Tiger Woods’ fifth Masters win Ethel Booba twits Mocha over 2 toilets in one cubicle at SEA Games venue On a magical afternoon at Augusta National, there was no chance of that happening. Woods didn’t let them or any of his millions of fans around the world down on a day that will live in Masters lore, already thick with Woods’ achievements.This wasn’t his signature win from 22 years ago, when he was the young phenom who thrilled the country by romping to victory for the first time at Augusta National.But it seemed just as good, just as satisfying, both to him and the massive galleries that did all they could to try and will him to a win.“To come back here and play as well as I did and did all the things — all the little things well this week, and to do it here,” Woods said, choking up at the thought. “This has meant so much to me and my family, this tournament, and to have everyone here, it’s something I’ll never, ever forget.At the age of 43, he’s a major champion again after fighting his way through a leaderboard filled with young talent, most who list Woods as a golf hero. He seized control of the tournament with near kick-in birdies on the 15th and 16th holes.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Tiger Woods reacts as he wins the Masters golf tournament Sunday, April 14, 2019, in Augusta, Ga. (Curtis Compton/Atlanta Journal-Constitution via AP)AUGUSTA, Ga. — They crowded hundreds deep around the 18th green, roaring when those lucky enough to be in front signaled the first sight of Tiger Woods in his familiar red coming up the fairway.Up by the clubhouse, the kitchen help stood in white jackets and hats, much like a previous generation did all those years ago. In front of them, a group of young people working this week as trash pickers tried unsuccessfully to find a piece of higher ground to witness history.ADVERTISEMENT Few in the huge throng had any hope of seeing anything. But they could hear, and on this day that was enough.Off to the side of the green, the Woods children had a much better view. His daughter, Sam, was a year old when dad won his last major championship and son, Charlie, had yet to be born.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsThey had watched last summer as Woods tried desperately to break his major championship drought at the British Open, only to come up just short.“I wasn’t going to let that happen to them twice,” Woods said.

Then he held on for dear life as the birdies started pouring in from those playing in front of him.“Now I know why I’m balding,” Woods said. “This stuff is hard.”The key to his remarkable day, though, might have come after a 3-putt on the fifth hole that left him three shots behind Francesco Molinari, who had beaten him at the British Open in front of his kids.Caddie Joe LaCava had seen enough, and gave Woods a talking too on the way to the sixth hole. MOST READ Hontiveros presses for security audit of national power grid DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew So was LaCava, who signed on to Woods’s bag at a time where he was still dealing with back issues and a messy DUI and wasn’t sure he would even play again. LaCava has been on the bag to see Woods change both as a player and a person.“He’s high-fiving people, he’s signing some autographs,” LaCava said. “He’s much more fan-friendly, which is awesome.”The two fans Woods wanted to win for most were in his family.They got hugs from dad on the green, then walked with him through an opening in the crowd as chants of “Tiger, Tiger, Tiger” rang out.“I hope they’re proud of their dad,” Woods said.Surely they are. But they’re not alone. That got him his fifth green jacket, but this meant more. So much more.All the doubt. All the doubters.All the issues no one ever expected Woods to have.“I don’t know of a better comeback in sports in my lifetime,” former champion Zach Johnson said.America got up early to watch Woods try and win a major from behind for the first time, after tee times were moved up nearly six hours because of threatening weather.
