Tiger Woods, out since the spring following back surgery, has progressed enough in his recovery to extend his swing, his agent said Tuesday, creating optimism that he might be able to compete in next month’s British Open.Woods already has missed two majors this year while he recovers from a microdiscectomy on his back on March 31. He last played on March 9 at Doral, when he closed with a 78 despite the pain in his lower back. Woods has said he has no idea when he will be healthy enough to return to competition.A report on Golf Channel’s morning show said he was taking full swings at the Medalist Golf Club in South Florida.”Tiger is progressing like he expected,” Mark Steinberg of Excel Sports Management said in an email. ”Feeling good each day. As each day passes and he feels that way, he lengthens the swing a bit.”Woods is the tournament host next week for the Quicken Loans National at Congressional. It is not expected that he will play. The deadline to enter is Friday. This is the first year of title sponsorship for the Detroit-based company.The next major is the British Open on July 17-20 at Royal Liverpool, where Woods won in 2006.The last time Woods missed two majors in one year because of injuries was in 2011, when he sat out the U.S. Open and British Open to let his leg fully recover. That year, he returned at Bridgestone Invitational in early August, a World Golf Championship that has no cut.In a promotional day for Quicken Loans last month, Woods said he was chipping and putting in a way that did not require rotation in his back. That was four weeks ago.He said he did not know how much time it would take for him to be ready for a tournament once he could take full swings with no pain.”The more time you give me, I think the better I’ll be,” he said. ”The great thing about what I’ve done so far and all my other previous surgeries, is that I worked on my short game. Once I start expanding from there and start competing and playing, if I start spraying it all over the lot and not hitting it that great, at least my short game is solid. That’s one of the positives to it.”Woods has slipped from No. 1 to No. 4 in the world ranking, and he is likely to fall a couple of more spots in coming weeks. He is at No. 207 in the FedEx Cup standings – having finished 72 holes only once this year – and the top 125 get into the playoffs that start Aug. 21.The news comes one day after Martin Kaymer won the U.S. Open with the second-lowest score in history at 271. The overnight rating for NBC Sports was 3.3, down 46 percent from the previous year at Merion.

Comments WWDC 2018: Everything from Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference 63 Photos I am now fairly confident based on evidence I don’t wish to make public at this point that Apple is planning new (likely UIKit) Music, Podcasts, perhaps even Books, apps for macOS, to join the new TV app. I expect the four to be the next wave of Marzipan apps.

Dedicated music, podcast and video apps coming to MacOSThe purported new icons for Apple’s Music, Podcast, TV and Book apps. Guilherme Rambo/9to5Mac Two veteran programmers, Guilherme Rambo and Steve Troughton-Smith, have discovered evidence suggesting that Apple may unveil new standalone apps for music, podcasts and TV shows in a forthcoming version of MacOS. According to the reports, Apple will keep iTunes around (for now) because it’s the only way to sync data between older iPods and iPhones and Macs. $249 See it iOS 13 leaks hint at future products and the latest iPhone… Apple’s impressive buying power, a store coming to WatchOS?

Now playing: Watch this: Given the precedent for hardware announcements and introductions at WWDC, there’s also a chance that we could see a new MacBook Pro or iPad Pro, or some other unknown product, brought out on stage. The company could also debut the updated Mac Pro, which it has already pledged to reveal in 2019. (In 2017, the company used the event to unveil a new iPad Pro and the HomePod smart speaker.) Apple didn’t respond to a request for comment.Below, we’ve rounded up everything you need to know about WWDC 2019 — including the rumors that have captured our attention so far. We’ll continue to update this article as we count down the days until the big conference, so check back often.When is WWDC 2019? Apple WWDC starts on June 3 and runs through June 7. Apple has invited members of the media to its annual keynote address, which will take place at 10 a.m. PT on Monday, June 3 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.How can I watch the WWDC 2019 livestream?If you have an Apple TV, you can use the Apple Events app to watch it (and older events, too). Otherwise, you can can livestream WWDC from the Apple Events section of the company’s website.CNET will also be liveblogging the event live from the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California.Can I attend WWDC? If you haven’t already snagged a ticket, the answer is probably “no.” Apple doled out tickets on a lottery system when the event was announced earlier this year, and all of the available slots have been snapped up.What are the rumors about WWDC 2019?A new look for iOS 13 Óscar Gutiérrez/CNET There’s a lot of buzz about a dramatic redesign coming to the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system, expected to be called iOS 13. We had heard reports that the forthcoming iPhone 11, expected in September, would have a new home screen, a system-wide “dark mode” setting, expanded multitasking capabilities and an “undo” option. Now, Bloomberg has published an article previewing dozens of features that are said to be part of the upgrade. They include:A refreshed Messages app that supports profile picture and names, privacy settings and expanded Animoji featuresAn upgraded Maps app that lets you identify and save important addresses (like home and work)Enhancements to Sleep Mode including tighter integration with the Bedtime feature Four dedicated sections in the Reminders app: “tasks to be done today, all tasks, scheduled tasks and flagged tasks”Plus new features coming in other apps including Books, Health, MailThe Bloomberg article also suggests that iOS 13 will support expanded multitasking features on the iPad and support its use as an external display for a Mac.iOS apps coming to MacOS (and vice versa) Matt Elliott/CNET At WWDC 2018, Apple software chief Craig Federighi announced new technology that would make it easier for people to take apps developed for iOS and bring them to Macs. In a MacOS update released in September, Apple unveiled new versions of four of its own apps that originated on iOS — News, Stocks, Voice Memos and Home — built with that technology. Now, apparently, Apple plans to bring this cross-platform framework to third-party developers.Reportedly code-named Marzipan, the technology is really for developers, not users. But there would be plenty of implications for the 1.4 billion devices currently running iOS, MacOS, WatchOS or TVOS. In the near-term, at least, it seems we can expect to see more iOS features — like Siri Shortcuts, Screen Time and iMessage screen effects — coming to MacOS, according to 9to5Mac.

Óscar Gutiérrez/CNET Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has made a few predictions about products that could materialize at WWDC. Earlier this year, he suggested that Apple would introduce two new iPad Pros in 2019. That noted, we already got two new non-Pro iPads in 2019, back in March — the iPad Air and the iPad Mini. And it hasn’t even been a year since the company released its two newest iPad Pros, last October, so we’re taking this one with a grain of salt.Read: New iPad feature to compete with laptops on track for Apple’s iOS 13Kuo has also suggested that Apple will release a new 16-inch MacBook Pro and refresh the 13-inch model with 32 GB of RAM. And he’s alleged that Apple is working on a new Mac Pro with “easy to upgrade components” that comes with a 31-inch 6K monitor that’s said to have a Mini LED-esque backlight design. Mouse support coming for iPads? Sarah Tew/CNET According to rumors, Apple may be taking another step toward evolving the iPad into a true laptop replacement. Federico Viticci, editor in chief of MacStories, says that the company may build in mouse support for the iPad in a future version of iOS. Will the 2019 Mac Pro debut at WWDC?Apple’s cylindrical Mac Pro. Apple There’s no harm in hoping. The company last refreshed its flagship desktop computer in December 2013, and Apple executives have been talking about a followup that’s been “coming soon” for years now. Around this time last year, we heard that a new Mac Pro would arrive in 2019. “We want to be transparent and communicate openly with our pro community so we want them to know that the Mac Pro is a 2019 product. It’s not something for this year,” Mac hardware product marketing director Tom Boger told TechCrunch in April 2018.Of course, Apple said something similar back in 2017. Read: The 2019 Apple Mac Pro has to look backward to move forwardBut maybe the company means it this time. After all, the iMac Pro was launched at WWDC in 2017. And if the new Mac Pro doesn’t come this June, Apple’s next and presumably final opportunity to launch it in 2019 would come in September. That’s when it’s expected to debut a new iPhone and perhaps some other high-profile hardware — which might be a less-than-ideal setting to unveil a niche product like the Mac Pro. Mentioned Above Apple iPad 2018 (space gray, 32GB) See All Review • Apple iPad 2018 review: The iPad for everyone A host of Apple executives, including CEO Tim Cook, are expected to take the stage at WWDC to outline the company’s software strategy and address issues ranging from privacy to security to developer relations.Perhaps the most anticipated news concerns the next version of Apple’s mobile operating system, likely to be called iOS 13, which powers the iPhone and iPad, and which is overdue for a major overhaul. In addition to a handful of redesigned and new features — like a retooled home screen, system-wide dark mode and more multitasking options — the company is also said to be cultivating greater interoperability between iOS with MacOS, the operating system used on its MacBook laptops and Mac desktop computers. This would ostensibly make it easier for developers to share code among apps written for the iPhone and iPad and Macs.

If the rumors are true, the company may use the event to unveil new hardware and announce one of the more significant changes to its iOS and MacOS software road map in years. Taking place once again at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, the 2019 Worldwide Developers Conference will show off the new apps, features and tools coming to the company’s expanding universe of software, services and devices. And unlike last year, when Apple focused mostly on shoring up the speed and responsiveness of its software, there’s a stronger chance of major product introductions and revelations in 2019.

I know old Mac guard are anxious but this feels like the early days of iPhone to me—poking at the APIs months before they became an SDK, seeing the kinds of things that could be built, etc. I trust Apple to make this the best way to write Mac apps— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) May 3, 2019 7:30 1:17 Marzipan could also hasten a transition on Apple’s Mac platform from Intel to iPad-style ARM chips, a long-rumored change that’s been reported by Bloomberg and Axios. In addition to creating business efficiencies for Apple, a single ARM-based CPU across iPhones, iPads and Macs would make it even easier for developers to create a single version of their apps.(John Gruber wrote a detailed and comprehensive analysis of the history, viability and wisdom of Apple’s strategy with Marzipan back in 2017.)Read: Universal apps for Macs and iOS may be on horizon with Apple’s ‘Marzipan’ projectA dedicated App Store for the Apple Watch, and more Érika García/CNET The company plans to bring the App Store to the Apple Watch, according to Bloomberg. The new update will be included in the next version of the device’s operating system, expected to be called WatchOS 6. Today, Apple Watch apps need to be downloaded using the Watch app on the iPhone and then transferred over. Read: App Store could be coming to WatchOS at WWDC, report saysThe Bloomberg article also mentions a new Voice Memos app that will take voice recordings from the wrist; an Apple Books app for audiobooks; a calculator app; a new Dose app that supports pill reminders; and a Cycles app that tracks menstrual cycles. Apple is also expected to add new watch faces and complications in the update, as well as Animoji and Memoji stickers.
The theme of the third edition of this annual festival is Jodti Zubanein, Judti Zubanein, and will deliberate on connections between languages and the connections languages make. ‘This year’s theme goes beyond the literary and cultural connections across languages and encompasses the connections between divergent media of expression, like literature, cinema, music, between various ideologies and between languages and dialects,’ said Satyanand Nirupam, festival’s creative director. Acclaimed personalities from diverse fields like Gulzar, Jerry Pinto, Ketan Mehta, and Mahesh Bhatt will be holding discussions on various subjects about literature, Bollywood, music and literature.They will cover issues ranging from Dalit and women writing, alternative voices from literature, cinema, radio, publishing, gender violence, aspirations, dreams and voices of the marginalised.Sessions titled Language into Language, Civil Society and its Activism among other will also take place.
