LOS ANGELES -- Tiger Woods said there was nothing bothering him but poor play Saturday as he stumbled out of contention at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio. Woods, an eight-time winner of the Bridgestone at Firestone Country Club in Akron, said his three-over 73 had nothing to do with any injury or illness. "I just played like crap," said the 14-time major champion, who started the day tied for 10th and five shots off the lead and finished 11 off the pace. "I didn't warm up very well. I didn't hit the ball crisp or clean," Woods said. READ: Lee Westwood withdraws from PGA with injury The lackluster effort was bound to draw questions about his fitness. Since winning his most recent title at the 2013 Bridgestone, Woods has battled back trouble that led to spinal fusion surgery in April of 2017.

caption The Amazon pickup location in Westwood, Los Angeles. source Business Insider/Dennis Green Amazon has been opening retail locations meant specifically for picking up and returning items. The retailer has opened nearly 30 of these stand-alone locations. We used one in the Los Angeles area to see what they’re like. Customers can only do two things at Amazon pickup locations: pick up packages and returning them. That’s all these locations are built for. Luckily, Amazon being the online-shopping powerhouse it is, those are two very important purposes. The locations function a lot like a post office, but just for Amazon packages. Get them sent to the building’s address, and they’ll be there when the customer is ready to pick them up. Packages can be kept there for up to two weeks. Need to return an item? The service is completely free since it doesn’t actually need to go through the mail.

By Rosie DiManno Star Columnist Sat., May 19, 2018 In love and in awe. He with her. She with him. And some 2 billion of the TV-invited who watched the royal wedding around the world Saturday morning. “You look amazing,” Prince Harry told Meghan Markle as she arrived at the quire of St. George’s Chapel, after walking alone — 110 steps down the aisle —taking the arm of Prince Charles for the final 37 paces, the Prince of Wales standing in for the bride’s father who was too ill to attend. Harry, to his dad, as the groom took delivery of the bride: “Thanks Pa.” Or so claimed the professional lip readers.

Henceforth known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, an extinct title resurrected and invested by the Queen upon her grandson as part … [Read more...] about Royal wedding was protocol and pomp, yes, but above all, a couple in love
The royal wedding was seen as a moment of modernization for the royal family. It was a melding of cultures and, while still steeped in tradition, often broke from the expected. One such surprise was the bride’s wedding gown, the singular defining style the world was waiting to see. And it was no fairy tale princess dress. Meghan Markle chose a simple, sculptural design by Givenchy that was absolutely elegant. Made of double bonded silk cady, it had a wide bateau neck just easing over the edge of each shoulder. It was topped by a five-meter-long veil of silk tulle trimmed in hand-embroidered flowers. The American bride’s flowing train heightened the drama as she strode past the friends, family and celebrities in attendance to meet Prince Harry in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. Other couture labels got shout-outs at the wedding as well, thanks to the star-studded guest list. Their entrances had all the buzz of a Hollywood red … [Read more...] about Meghan Markle’s Givenchy dress reflects a more modern monarchy
