We’re coming down the homestretch of the men’s golf competition at the Tokyo Olympics, which has been as much an endurance race as anything. Multiple weather delays, numerous lead changes and a leaderboard chock-full of various nationalities have made this a riveting tournament to follow.
Kasumigaseki Country Club outside Tokyo is the host venue of the event and is one of Japan’s most exclusive private clubs. The East Course, which is where the Olympics are being played, opened in 1929, but Tom and Logan Fazio completed renovations to the track in 2016.

There are two meetings to look at on Wednesday, with my attention being at Melton and Redcliffe. Below are the best bets for the respective programs. Melton Best bet: Race 3, Number 4, Carnera It has been a little while since he has greeted the judge, but he gets a great chance to change that here. This horse is on the back-up after a game effort last Friday at Geelong when leading and fighting on pretty well when fourth. This horse drops a bit in grade and depth here, should find the front and prove hard to get past. Next best: Race 2, Number 1, Crafty Old Fox He loves the sit/sprint set-up and has drawn the pole. That should eventuate here. The rub of the green didn’t go his way last start at Shepparton...
Welcome to a sneak peek of the Maclean’s Politics Insider newsletter. Sign up to get it delivered straight to your inbox in the morning. After $600 million, six weeks, 150 polls, three debates, a handful of gravel thrown in anger, long lineups and 13,513,848 votes, we end up awfully close to where we were when we started—a Liberal minority. Grim: Writing in Maclean’s, Shannon Proudfoot observes that it was an election that disappointed everyone. It was, in perhaps the most grizzled and depressing way, a very grown-up campaign well-suited to an exhausted world that still cannot be rightly called post-pandemic. There were no starry eyes here, no thought that better is possible,...

Photo by Mike Roach/Zuffa LLCThe Dan Hooker vs. Nasrat Haqparast fight is once again in jeopardy. On Monday’s The MMA Hour, Dan Hooker detailed his difficult journey to get a last-minute visa for UFC 266 this weekend. After reaching out for help on social media, Hooker was able to get his visa approved and will be landing in the United States on Thursday, will weigh in on Friday, and will then face Nasrat Haqparast on Saturday. Except now it appears all of Hooker’s hard work could be for naught as Haqparast is having the same issue that Hooker did. Haqparast’s mother passed away last week, but despite the tragedy, Haqparast said he still intended to fight Hooker at UFC 266. But Haqparast flew back to Germany for his mother’s...
Whether our best is enough to achieve everything we want isn’t the point. (Courtesy Dorien Llewellyn/)“You have to decide who you want to be in life. Then you make decisions throughout the rest of your time on Earth that will either help you achieve your goals or will put your dreams in jeopardy.”While I might be paraphrasing slightly, and who can really blame me as I was only 8 years old when I heard this quote, these words from my father have been a guiding beacon in every aspect of my existence. Now, when the most successful professional water-skier of all time imparts any kind of wisdom onto an aspiring athlete, most people would assume that the words would not fall on deaf ears. Yet, when that same nine-time world-champion water-skier named Jaret Llewellyn...
Being a new parent, or an expectant parent can make you particularly aware of health issues, especially during the pandemic that we have endured over the past year and a half. As efforts continue to get more people vaccinated against SARS-CoV2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), you may be hearing discussions and debates surrounding the issue of vaccine booster shots, so let’s unpack that. If you are up to date on your various non-COVID immunizations —as well you should be— that you know that typically you receive more than one shot of each vaccine. After the initial immunization that occurs when you are young, to prevent certain conditions, tetanus for example, you need to have a booster shot every certain number of years. The reason is that immunity tends to wane as time...
Premier Doug Ford, who remained neutral in the federal election, is calling for unity after “an extremely difficult and divisive” campaign.The Progressive Conservative premier specifically forbade his cabinet ministers and senior staff from helping Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives in Monday’s election.He also had a de facto truce with the federal Liberals, his partners during the COVID-19 pandemic that began in March 2020, and is continuing to negotiate an agreement with Ottawa on $10-a-day child care.“I want to congratulate Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on his re-election and congratulate all federal leaders who campaigned across Canada to ensure Canadians’ voices were heard on the important issues facing this country,” Ford said Tuesday.“COVID-19 doesn’t care...
Haptic (adjective, “HAP-tik”) This word is used to describe things related to the sense of touch. The skin is full of receptors that send different types of haptic information — such as texture or pressure — to the brain. Smartphones and game controllers offer haptic feedback to users through vibrations. Future haptic devices could use sound waves we can’t hear to make users feel objects that aren’t there. When the word is the plural “haptics,” it becomes a noun. That word can have one of two meanings. First, it is the area of science that studies touch. Second, it is the use of technology to add touch sensations to interactions with machines. For instance, in the haptics settings on a smartphone, users can turn vibrations on or off. Haptics researchers...
