Golfer Anna Rawson leads the LPGA Tour

Posted by TSUE on September 12, 2008

Runway model and golfer Anna Rawson is tied for the lead after the first round of the Bell Micro Classic.  Rawson, a former Southern California star from Australia, had six birdies and a bogey on The Crossing course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Magnolia Grove complex. She has missed the cut in seven of her nine tour starts this year.

“I just hit fairways and I hit it close a lot, and then I made the putts,” Rawson said. “I’ve kind of been playing that way for the last four weeks and I haven’t been making any putts. I think the new putter that I got on Monday really helped.”

Serena Willaims– Champion Again, No. 1 Again

Serena celebrated winning her ninth Grand Slam crown at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. This is her third US Open WIN. when  It was tennis of the highest standard as she won 6-4, 7-5 and in doing so the world number one ranking also returned to her arms.

“I’m so excited.  I can’t even describe it,” said Serena. “Usually after a Grand Slam I feel like I still have another match to play, but I don’t really feel that way today.  I feel like it’s done and it’s all over, and I’m so excited.  I just    I think it showed on the court.

“I mean, everyone is so excited, believe me.  I mean, this is cool, because I’m at No. 9; I’m pushing the doors closer to double digits, which obviously I want to get to.

“This is cool, because I feel like my game has gotten a lot better and I’ve improved, and, you know    I don’t know.  It was just    each one is really special.  Each one is so special.

“I don’t know.  The Olympic gold medal, though, still, I love.  I can’t tell you how excited I was to win the gold medal.”

No. 1 is an added bonus,” she said. “Like I said, I wasn’t even trying to be No. 1.  I always said if I win tournaments    and then, Ah, I can’t believe I’m No. 1.  It’s been so long.  It’s kind of weird.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
September 4, 2008
 
Newark, NJ– Newark, NJ natives- motivational speaker Rahfeal Gordon and actor Michael B. Jordan- are about to take every student on a journey with their “Homeroom Heroes: Book for the Nation Tour”.

 

Longtime friends, Rahfeal and Michael have chosen the path to write a four book series to relay their high school tales of attending Newark’s Arts High School. However, their adventures go further than a story. The young men are relaying a message through different periods (chapters) of “Homeroom Heroes” which is to encourage and motivate students to be different or according to the two authors.. become a “homeroom hero.”

 

“Homeroom Heroes” is a four book series, written in dialog format that will have readers smiling, laughing, crying, and reminiscing about experiences they once had during their high school pastime. The books share some of Rahfeal and Michael’s funniest experiences and lessons learned while attending Arts. The chapters in Homeroom Heroes are not really chapters. Homeroom Heroes have 8 Periods plus Detention. Students will be able to relate to every period because every student goes through many periods during the day. Period 1 starts off with Homeroom while Period 8 ends the book with Gossip.

 

“Homeroom Heroes: Books for the Nation Tour” is an approach for Michael B. Jordan and Rahfeal Gordon to visit different locations in the nation and to take over local areas as trendsetters with high energy and words of encouragement. The tour kicks off in their home state- New Jersey- on Saturday, September 20th at New Jersey’s largest outlet mall, Jersey Gardens in Elizabeth. The book signing begins from 1:00 PM to 4:00PM.

NBA Super Star & Gold Medal Olympian Wayman Tisdale-Recuperating

Posted by TSUE on September 4, 2008

 

The renowned recording artist, composer, former NBA superstar, and Gold Medal Olympian, Wayman Tisdale, recently underwent surgery to remove a recurrent, cancerous tumor. After learning of his relapse, Tisdale elected to have surgery that will fully assure his overcoming the disease. Following a successful surgery, Tisdale is in good spirits and health and will be returning home shortly to recover before he picks up touring again later this fall.

Tisdale says, “I have complete faith that with the Lord’s blessings, this surgery will eliminate the cancer from my body, and I’ll soon be back on the road doing what I do best. There is a lot more music inside me, and once I am back on my feet, I look forward to sharing my joy with my fans, friends, and fellow musicians”.

The award winning bassist will take some time off to recuperate, and will be back in time for late Fall tour dates, and to host the January, 2009 “Smooth Jazz Cruise.” The seven-day excursion, which will surely be a joyful celebration, features Gerald Albright, Jonathan Butler, Peabo Bryson, Jeff Golub, Everette Harp, Jeff Lorber, Brian Simpson, John Stoddart, Jodey Watley, Kirk Whalum, Peter White, Willie and Lobo, Jonathan Slocumb, and special guests; Rufus and Chaka Khan.

 

Tisdale was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, located on his right tibia after breaking his leg in 2007. Knee replacement surgery and months of chemotherapy followed. The surgery which took place on August 25 to remove the lower part of his right leg is expected to eradicate the cancer, and Tisdale’s surgeons predict a full and speedy recovery.

 

Wayman Tisdale’s latest album, Rebound, debuted at # 1 on the Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Chart.  Tisdale’s current single, “Throwin’ It Down”, is ranked 6th in this week’s USA TODAY Mediabase Smooth AC chart. He co-wrote the upbeat, jaunty tune with Darren Rahn, who produced Wayman’s #1 single “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now.”

 

Tisdale lives in Tulsa, OK, with his wife, four children, and new granddaughter, Bailey.

NFL star Jonathan Babineaux has joined forces with the Lupus Foundation of America, Georgia Chapter to help raise awareness for lupus, one of the least recognizable and most misunderstood diseases affecting 55,000 Georgians and more than 1.5 million Americans.

 

Jonathan, who was recently inducted into the Port Arthur Hall of Fame along with his brother Jordan who plays for the Seattle Seahawks, through their Babineaux Brothers Foundation have been sponsoring fundraisers in their hometown of Port Arthur, Texas, to benefit lupus research for four years.  Jonathan is now assisting Georgians living with lupus by helping highlight the programs, services and events provided by the Georgia chapter.

 

The Lupus Foundation of America, Georgia Chapter (LFAGA) is the only statewide valuable resource for lupus patients, providing thousands with educational information, physician referrals, resources, support groups and educational programs. 90% of every dollar raised stays in Georgia to support chapter programs.

 

Monday, Sept.  22, 2008, the LFAGA is hosting its first annual “Drive for Lupus Now” Golf Tournament at Towne Lake Hills Golf Club with PGA Tour’s Jason Bohn and Mark Strickland, the 2007 Georgia State Golf Association, Player of the Year. To play golf, sponsor a golfer or for more information on all chapter programs and how to get involved and make a difference for those living with lupus, visit www.lfaga.org or call 770-333-5930 or email info@lfaga.org

 

Due to the alarming increase in the number of people affected by lupus in their hometown, the Babineaux family raise funds to benefit lupus programs as well as building a community recreation center.
