Dana’s results on Friday are expected to give details of the £200m planned purchase of Suncor Energy in Canada, and post increased growth through oil finds in the North Sea. South Korean state-owned KNOC has previously claimed to know the details of the Suncor acquisition, and said it will not alter the overall value of the company. The board of Dana is expected to continue shirking KNOC’s advances this week. It told shareholders last Friday to “take no action in respect of the [hostile] offers” in a hint that it hopes KNOC will increase its bid. However, KNOC said it has bagged letters of intent from 49 per cent of Dana’s shareholders, including several hedge funds, in support of its £18 a share offer. Supportive hedge funds including Eton Park, Jabre Capital and Centaurus have bought contracts for difference amounting to more than a quarter of Dana’s issued shares, giving them the power to vote on takeover offers.Dana founder and chief executive Tom Cross stands to gain around £37.4m if a sale goes through.

As I write, the index trades around 6,855 points, up 3.7% today, and 6.1% in three days. That’s a solid start and may reflect investor relief over the last-minute Brexit deal. For me, it may indicate that global investors have finally realised that UK shares are too cheap. After all, the valuation gap between the FTSE 100 and global stocks is at a 25-year high. This decent start may bode well for the year as a whole, per the City saying, “As goes January, so goes the year”.UK shares have boomed since OctoberOn 6 October, the FTSE 100 closed at 5,949 points. Three months later, it has leapt over 900 points, rising by almost a sixth (15.2%). On Vaccine Day, (9 November), the first effective Covid-19 vaccine was revealed. Since then, cheap UK shares have staged a major comeback, with November the second-best month for the FTSE 100 since 1984. That partly made up for an awful year overall.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…These five stocks missed the partyThough the Footsie has surged since October, not all its members have done quite so well. Of 101 shares in the index, 84 have gained since 6 October. Thus, 17 stocks have declined over three months. Among these 17, losses vary from 0.4% to 18.5%. Here are the five worst of these losing UK shares:Unilever (Consumer goods) -7.6%Pennon Group (Water & waste utility) -7.8%Reckitt Benckiser (Consumer goods) -9.5%AstraZeneca (Pharma)-10.3%Sage Group (Software) -18.5%When I look at this list of laggards, I’m taken aback. Frankly, I’m surprised these UK shares have all fallen over the past quarter. For me, all five of these British businesses are success stories. If you forced me to buy all five stocks today, I wouldn’t put up a fight.Which two losers would I buy today?Among these five fallers are two exceptional Anglo-Dutch companies that I’d happily invest in today.The first, Unilever, is the giant of the two. At its current share price of 4,475p, Unilever has a market value of £119.2bn, making it a super-heavyweight among UK shares. Having invested in equities since 1986, I know Unilever to be one of the FTSE 100’s biggest successes. If you’d put Unilever into your portfolio at pretty much any time over the past three decades, you’d be chuffed with the result. For example, since the lows of the global financial crisis in March 2009, Unilever shares are up over 260%. Today, this giant among UK shares trades on a price-to-earnings ratio of 22 and an earnings yield of 4.5%, and pays a dividend of 3.3% a year. That is a fair price for a high-quality business, which is why I’d happily buy Unilever today.I also like the look of Unilever’s ‘little cousin’, Reckitt Benckiser. In many ways, the two businesses are very similar: both sell the popular consumer goods and brands that fill up British cupboards in kitchens and bathrooms. However, RB is much smaller in scale. At the current share price of 6,755p, it is valued at £47.81 — still a big player in its own right. RB’s dividend yield of 2.6% is lower than Unilever’s, but still a useful addition to a diversified income portfolio. That’s why I’d buy its shares today, ideally inside an ISA, to enjoy tax-free dividends and future capital gains.

Her new portfolio includes marketing, communications and fundraising.An award-winning journalist, Jenkins became editor of the Journal in July 2009, shepherding the 137-year-old newspaper through ongoing content and design changes, website re-design, daily newspaper and web reports at General Synod 2010 and a national readership survey in 2012. During Jenkins’ tenure, a new printing contract brought improved paper stock and colour to every page of the Journal as well as to all of the diocesan newspapers.“Kristin has edited the Journal for a relatively short time, but the changes she has effected in the newspaper have been huge,” said Vianney (Sam) Carriere, director of communications and information resources at General Synod. “She has met many challenges with imagination and creativity, ever mindful of the needs and expectations of the newspaper’s readers,” said Carriere, who is also director of Resources for Mission.Under Jenkins’ leadership, the newspaper continued to win awards in every category of writing, editing, reporting, photography and design. In 2012, the Journal brought home a total of 27 awards from the Associated Church Press (ACP) and the Canadian Church Press (CCP).“Of all that the Journal team has accomplished in the past few years—and I mean “team”—the most profound change has been a shift away from its former style of reporting,” says Jenkins. “My editorship has been about inclusivity and building relationships by telling stories. I want readers to understand that the church they love is still a living, breathing entity and that they are very much a part of its future.”In addition, says Jenkins, better understanding of the needs of print readers versus those visiting the website has helped the team focus content for two different audiences. “The readership survey told us that most of the readers of the Journal are female, non-clergy and 65 years of age and older,” she explains. “They told us they are getting their news from newspapers, magazines, radio and television and that they are not reading stories online. They also told us that they value their church newspapers which they feel keep them connected to the church.”Recently, significant cuts to the Journal’s 2013 operating budget resulted in the decision to reduce the size of the newspaper from 12 pages to eight. While the future of the national newspaper and the 22 diocesan newspapers that it distributes is not yet known, Jenkins acknowledged that reader support has never been stronger. “I have never, in my 30-plus years as a journalist, been privy to such a passionate outpouring of affirmation and encouragement as I have been at the Journal. To every person who has written and called me, to give the good news as well as the bad, I am truly grateful.”Prior to the Journal, Jenkins worked in corporate publishing where she was editor-in-chief of a number of national magazines, including Owl Canadian Family, TV Guide and Healthwatch. She also held senior executive positions at Chatelaine, FLARE, and The Medical Post, a weekly newspaper for Canadian physicians. As the editorial director at Thomson Healthcare, she was in charge of a division of 29 newspapers and magazines.

General Convention approves marriage equality

first_img July 2, 2015 at 2:22 pm Gee Peter, you’re against an awful lot — I always thought that we HAD fundamentals.After all, “fundamentals” are building blocks, basics, beginning places.According to the canons our “fundamentals” are: The Bible, the Creeds, the Book of Common Prayer, and the Catechism in BCP (well…not anymore). Speaking of “dissenters”, are you dissenting from these as the building blocks and beginning places? They ARE fundamental.I marvel when people find “the new thing” that can’t be reconciled with Scripture or Tradition (and barely with reason) and then blame the Holy Spirit for it.The Mormon Prophet is recognized as someone who can make new pronouncements and that they are on the same authority as Scripture. How appropriate that General Convention met in Salt Lake City. Submit a Press Release Thomas Coates says: Director of Music Morristown, NJ Comments navigation Newer comments Steve Marks says: July 3, 2015 at 12:11 am the episcopal church has been heading to all ways liberal for some time. this decision unfortunately does not surprise me. i assume ultimately this is the church’s response to declining membership. i doubt this is going to accomplish what they want and rest assure it is more seats in the pews. follow the money. they think they just hit the jackpot. the church now follows the many cults of mainstream liberalism. add gay marriage to the list, along with the science fiction of global warming. the episcopal church has lost their way and is grasping at straws to become relevant. this current tack will spell the end of the church. the church is a boat with no rudder floundering at sea. whichever way the current fad blows it will follow, out of desperation. its heading towards the rocks.

Nancy boulton says: Josh Bowron says: Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA July 2, 2015 at 10:17 am I watched the proceeding online and have a question about Bishops’ discretion. If my Bishop does not approve of marriage equality, can he disallow the Priest in my parish to marry a gay couple? Jay Abbott says: Mary Roehrich says: July 2, 2015 at 11:24 am I am so deeply hurt, sad, and betrayed by my little part of the Body of Christ. I don’t know where to begin….To those who voted for the approval…..In your arrogance and human wisdom, you have decided that God is no longer sovereign, the Bible is no longer the inspired word of God and is not relevant for our times, you have gone one major step further in disrupting the unity of the church, and have greatly harmed our ability to spread the Good News because the Good News depends on the fact that all of the aforementioned are true and unchanging. I am sure that your hearts were in the right place in your attempt to love an include one segment of society in the Body of Christ. But, God already had that covered in His word!As a result of your action, our children, our grand children, and those who seek love and acceptance in ungodly ways (sex outside of the marriage of a man and woman as ordained by Jesus Christ himself), you have given the “blessing of the church,”…. a legitimate reason to explore those ways.So I will end this with a scripture even though you might think that it is not relevant for our times:“It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin. (Luke 17:2)Jesus wept….. July 2, 2015 at 12:05 am Fellow Episcopalians,Please keep in mind that not all dioceses will be open to this action. For many of us, for instance in the Diocese of Texas, the hard work on marriage starts now. We need your prayerful support and friendship as we discern the actions of General Convention. Rector Belleville, IL [Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City] In the wake of the June 26 U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage for all Americans, General Convention followed suit on July 1 with canonical and liturgical changes to provide marriage equality for Episcopalians.The House of Deputies concurred with the House of Bishops’ approval the day before of a canonical change eliminating language defining marriage as between a man and a woman (Resolution A036) and authorizing two new marriage rites with language allowing them to be used by same-sex or opposite-sex couples (Resolution A054).The resolutions marked the culmination of a conversation launched when the 1976 General Convention said that “homosexual persons are children of God who have a full and equal claim with all other persons upon the love, acceptance and pastoral concern and care of the church,” said the Very Rev. Brian Baker, deputy chair of the Special Legislative Committee on Marriage. “That resolution began a 39-year conversation about what that full and equal claim would look like. The conversation has been difficult for many and painful for many.”Resolutions A054 and A036 represented compromises reached after prayerful consideration and conversation within the legislative committee, and then the House of Bishops to make room for everyone, Baker said. “I know that most of you will find something … to dislike and to disagree with” in the resolutions, he said, asking deputies to “look through the lens of how this compromise makes room for other people.”Deputies defeated an attempt to amend each of the resolutions. Following 20 minutes of debate per resolution, each resolution passed in a vote by orders. A054 passed by 94-12 with 2 divided deputations in the clerical order and 90-11-3 in the lay order. A036 passed 85-15-6 in the clerical order and 88-12-6 in the lay order.Besides authorizing two new marriage liturgies, A054 also approves for continued use “The Witnessing and Blessing of a Lifelong Covenant” from “Liturgical Resources I,” which General Convention approved for provisional use in 2012, “under the direction and with the permission of the bishop exercising ecclesiastical authority.”Earlier in the week, the bishops divided the portion of A054 dealing with the existing rite from that addressing the new liturgies for the purposes of discussion, ultimately voting to approve both portions. They approved A036 in a roll call vote, with 129 for, 26 against and five abstaining.“At my first General Convention in 1991, I don’t think I ever dreamed that we would have such a resolution before us,” Atlanta Deputy Bruce Garner said as debate began on A054. “I came to Salt Lake City a second-class citizen in my nation and my church, and I hope to leave here a first-class citizen in both.”Among the dissenting voices was Holden Holsinger from the Diocese of East Michigan, a member of the Official Youth Presence, who urged defeat “in order to maintain the unity of the church.”The two new liturgies, “The Witnessing and Blessing of a Marriage” and “The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage 2” from “Liturgical Resources 1: I Will Bless You and You Will be a Blessing, Revised and Expanded 2015” from the supplemental Blue Book materials of the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music, are authorized for use beginning this Advent. Those rites offer the option of using “wife,” “husband,” “person” or “spouse,” thus making them applicable for all couples. The liturgies can be found on pages 2-151 here from the materials provided to convention by the standing commission, including one rejected by bishops in their deliberations.A054 stipulates: “Bishops exercising ecclesiastical authority or, where appropriate, ecclesiastical supervision, will make provision for all couples asking to be married in this church to have access to these liturgies. Trial use is only to be available under the discretion and with the permission of the diocesan bishop.”The resolution also says that “bishops may continue to provide generous pastoral response to meet the needs of members of this church.” During their house discussion, bishops said this was intended to address bishops’ situations in jurisdictions outside the United States, such as Italy and countries in Province IX, where same-sex marriages remain illegal.Both resolutions say that clergy retain the canonical right to refuse to officiate at any wedding.Resolution A036 revises Canon I.18 titled “Of the Solemnization of Holy Matrimony” (page 58 of The Episcopal Church’s canons here). Among many edits, it removes references to marriage as being between a man and a woman. The revised first section of the canon now says that clergy “shall conform to the laws of the state governing the creation of the civil status of marriage, and also these canons concerning the solemnization of marriage. Members of the clergy may solemnize a marriage using any of the liturgical forms authorized by this church.”Under the revised canon, couples would sign a declaration of intent, which the legislative committee crafted to respect the needs of couples where only one member is a Christian.The Rev. Joseph Howard of Tennessee said he voted for A054 “because I thought it was a statement of honesty about where the church is and that it regularized what we have been doing.” But he opposed A036 as “a vote against good order because I believe it assumes a belief that has not yet become clear in our church.”James Steadman of Northwestern Pennsylvania cited the words of the post-Communion prayer in the Book of Common Prayer, telling deputies: “This is the time. Use the courage that you have prayed for all these years and vote for this resolution.”In other marriage-related legislation, earlier in the week the House of Deputies approved Resolution A037, after several failed amendments, concurring with bishops on the continued work of the Task Force on the Study of Marriage.The resolution asks congregations to study resources that were created by the Task Force on Marriage to help understand the theology of marriage and the long history of marriage, which are now available to congregations (beginning on page 9 here), Baker told the deputies.It also authorizes continued work of the task force “because the work is not done,” Baker said. It invites exploration of the cultural and theological diversity to move the conversation forward, he said, adding that too often the study has focused on an Anglo-Western perspective “when we are a church that has people from different nations.”— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent. July 18, 2015 at 11:13 pm It is often difficult for us mere mortals to accept anything or anyone that is different or “foreign” than what we have had instilled in us from birth or early childhood. But we have been given the ability to think and grow in understanding of each other. If we bother to educate ourselves concerning gender differences, we just might be able to honor our baptismal pledge: “Will you strive for justice and peace among people and respect the dignity of every human being? I will with God’s help.” Marilyn Harms says: Featured Jobs & Calls July 4, 2015 at 10:15 am We are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves, and carried aboutby every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, by craftiness in deceitfulscheming; but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him,who is the head, even Christ.The Church is supposed to stand immovable against “every wind of doctrine.” By contrast,the fad-driven church is a windsock. If you want to know which way the wind is blowing,the latest teachings, the newest programs or the most current methods, just look at thefad-driven church.Ironically, the fad-driven church often excuses its lack of discernment in the name ofsaving souls. It justifies its appetite for fads in the name of evangelism. “Whatever ittakes” is the creed of the fad-driven church. “Whatever it takes to reach the lost” issupposed to be a courageous new strategy for evangelism. But “Whatever it takes” isn’t astrategy. “Whatever it takes” is an admission that you have no strategy. Sinners aren’tsaved by “whatever,” sinners are saved by what Jesus did at the Cross. “Whatever it takes”is just another way of saying, “Whatever people want,” or “Whatever everyone else isdoing.” Rather than seeking the lost, the fad-driven church is just seeking its next fix.The Fad-Driven Churchby Todd Wilken Susie Shaefer says: Darlene Lent says: Rector Knoxville, TN Jaan Sass says: Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI John Galt says: July 2, 2015 at 12:32 am It is hard to vote for a measure that you know will cause pain to others even when you think it is the right thing to do. This was a difficult day. Some friends and loved ones are delighted and others are anguished. May God’s grace be with us all. Thomas Ivinson says: Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME July 2, 2015 at 7:58 am David, this passage has a long history of interpretation and disputation. Perhaps one of the most common is that it illustrates Paul’s understanding of a continuum of sexuality (not a spectrum of sexual orientation), with male as perfect (calm) and female as imperfect (weak, given over to passions). Science and discernment has shown us this is not the case: A heterosexual male, no matter how debaucherous, wouldn’t “turn gay”. Also note the important “God gave them up” – God is doing the something here, not reflective of the joy and selflessness of LGBT or heterosexual marriage. For another perspective, check out “Dearly Beloved…” by the Task Force for the Study of Marriage in TEC. July 2, 2015 at 1:09 am I surely will be praying for those churches/diocese who will stand against this decision. People’s eternal life is at stake here and I am not sure that anyone is really thinking about that – or about the spiritual consequences for the priests, bishops and leaders who are going ahead and saying this is “good and pleasing to God”. I think that is what concerns me the most-people making that arrogant assumption FOR God. I am scared for the Church as a whole. Search your hearts, search the scriptures and PRAY for the TRUTH to be revealed. Many will be leaving their beloved churches and finding ones that stand firm in the Word. In Matthew- Jesus did say he didn’t come to bring peace to the earth. not peace but a sword…to divide people, even families. Choose this day whom you will serve…..prayers for you. July 2, 2015 at 4:52 am Years ago as a young priest, I was against the decision of TEC to ordain women to the priesthood and the episcopate because I feared it would destroy our relationships with other branches of the Church Catholic. To me, then, it seemed right for us to “wait” for a chance at a united Christian decision on such ordinations. The ordained women of the Diocese of Dallas, by their witness to the Grace of God changed my thinking in this regard for which I am grateful. I thank them for teaching me and others the mysterious ways of God. I pray that those opposed to these decisions on marriage in the Church will allow themselves to remain open to those same mysterious ways of God in the days ahead. God has, it seems to this much older priest, much still to reveal to us all. The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Marilyn Harms says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC July 2, 2015 at 4:29 pm A good decision. Makes me very proud to be an Episcopalian, and I hope everyone will move forward toward complete acceptance and inclusion of everyone. I have good friends who just were legally married in a Presbyterian church in Texas Sunday after 29 years together. It has been a joyous occasion for them, for their church, and for many others. These guys are both leaders in their large congregation, very faithful followers of Christ. So the decision of the General Convention is very welcome. I understand that some have not accepted this, but the overwhelming majority of church leaders, who have studied the issue prayerfully for years, have made their decision. It is time. Thank you to everyone who supported this. General Convention 2015, July 2, 2015 at 6:48 pm With scissors. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI July 2, 2015 at 9:43 am For those posting references to Romans 1, I commend this perspective to you:http://www.patheos.com/blogs/mercynotsacrifice/2015/06/26/are-you-open-to-an-lgbt-affirming-biblical-perspective/ Associate Rector Columbus, GA Steve Hayes says: November 21, 2015 at 6:38 pm I am stunned as I read the vitriol aimed at LGBT Episcopalians, and I am curious about what these brother and sisters in Christ who are so certain that God did not create LGBTs do at the point in the Eucharist that invites those who are “in love and charity with their neighbor” to come forward to receive the body and blood of Christ at God’s altar? Certainly I am not without sin, but I this old woman (79) knows wrongdoing when I see it. Why cannot you accept LGBTsas children of God who love and live just like the rest of us? July 2, 2015 at 12:52 am It CANNOT be reconciled… the Church has succumbed to worldly and political pressure while forgetting that God and His word does not change. He isn’t changing his mind but He did warn us that we would have leaders who will take followers down a heretical path. Col. 2:8 “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of this world…rather that on Christ.” AND- “Do not be deceived, God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” Gal. 6:7 SOMEWHERE along the line – people/leaders have forgotten that God is the great I AM!! No one can change Him, change His mind or His word. I cannot understand how they have forgotten who HE IS and what he commands – to obey His words as revealed in Scripture. The Church is now legitimizing and normalizing sin and saying it is ok…..that is a very scary precedent to make and what will follow (pedophilia, polygamy, and worse) will not even shock most of the world. Our job is to pray without ceasing and get ourselves to a Bible believing Church – one which knows the Word and has a healthy AWE and respect for the One who created us. Amen. TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab July 2, 2015 at 10:51 am I wonder if there is any way to find out how individuals voted on this. Was it a secret ballot or a public vote? July 7, 2015 at 5:40 pm That is not an accurate translation. The word “homosexual” did not even exist until the early 1900’s. Similarly, the “acts” that were condemned were from people who did not know about stable, loving, committed relationships between people of the same gender. All of the same sex behavior they knew was that forced on conquered people essentially to humiliate them by putting them in a “woman’s place” in a sex act. The real perversion is any use of sex as a form of punishment…..yet another long and misunderstood story line. Stephen J Waller says: Comments (60) Doug Desper says: Barbara Finlay says: July 2, 2015 at 4:33 pm Christine: I believe a bishop cannot do that. He/she must make an accommodation for a couple who want to marry. But any particular priest may decline, as long as he/she finds another to do the service. At least this is my understanding, based on listening to a report from my bishop. David Measer says: John Galt says: Christine Tsotsos says: Rector Albany, NY July 2, 2015 at 10:53 am Do we forget that the Curch is the body of Christ? The body does not tell the head what to do or what is acceptable. The Head governs the body. When I sin I do not blame my body, I know it was the sin of my fleshly soul. I thank God everyday for his Grace as I need it desperately. Gods word is either Truth or fiction. If you believe it is Truth then do not try to change God’s word to fit your feelings and desires. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? Jer 17:9. If it is fiction then it has no power or authority and what we want is fine and accaptable. I do not lead a perfect righteous life but I know what God wants me to do. I know because His Word tells me. I know when I sin because I know His Word. God has spoken clearly about this issue and those who question the Makers choices need go to him in prayer and ask for forgiveness. If you cannot see past your own desires you need to ask yourself if you are part of the Body or are you s wolf in sheep’s clothing or just deceived. Fr Samuel Torvend says: John Galt says: July 3, 2015 at 6:57 am I left the Roman Church to flee from hate here in the Philippines. Will I need to change once again from what I read in this forum?From gaystarnews on the web:How the Bible was re-written to attack homosexuality: Lies, mistranslations and anti-gay editing“The only source of anti-homosexual rhetoric in the New Testament is the writings of Paul, specifically the first letter to the Corinthians and, more extensively, Romans I.The Gospels are, crucially, silent on the matter.The Greek text of Corinthians says that ‘the corrupt, and men who lie with men’ will not inherit the Kingdom of God.But a version in Aramaic, a language commonly spoken among Jews and Gentiles in the Middle East, reads ‘the corrupted, and those who rape men’, a significant reversion. Most likely, Paul was condemning coercive same-sex acts not homosexuality.Romans is, on first reading, more problematic in that it denounces women who ‘changed their natural use’ and men who are ‘ravished with desire for one another’. But context is everything as the passage relates to the punishment of people who had abandoned the one God in favor of an animal-headed throng.Let’s face it, Paul was a misery and likely had in his sights devotees of various racy cults, who engaged in that old Biblical bother ‘ritual prostitution’.As these cults formed a significant threat to Christianity in the early centuries, Paul was warning his flock against them. Even John Chrysostom, whose homophobia borders on hysteria, suggested Paul wasn’t speaking of men who were ‘enamored of, or lusted after one another’ but those who made a ‘business of it’.Put simply, modern Christian homophobia is based on manipulations of the original Bible.” Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Beverly Sweeton says: July 2, 2015 at 11:22 pm Should the Bible be edited to delete the parts that blatantly contradict the vote affirming populist cultural moral standards and secular humanism pervading Christian denominations? Just cut out the abomination and sin references? Should we be passing out scissors to the congregations or just tell them to ignore those parts? Absolutely welcome and embrace all sinners (which is all of us) seeking Him. But embrace and even celebrate the sins? Seems Biblically contradictory doesn’t it. Either dump the Bible or follow it. Cut the self deluding pretense of honoring God. July 8, 2015 at 8:43 am This reply from a fundamentalist is sad. Basically without dialogue judgement has been thrown from a passage in Romans dealing with religious prostitution at the Greek temples and other horrendous sex cults prevalent in the Roman Empire especially in the middle east and Greece. Also a study of how doctrines meaning can change over time. even in the old testament one can see a progressive revelation over time. We are not a fundamentalist Church we are a catholic church which values the bible tradition reason and experience. We recognize the word is not the bible but Jesus is the word. The scriptures were not written in a cultural vaacum and though it contains doctrine it is for the most part a progressive story of God’s work in the world. The base of are faith comes from the counsels of the early church developments from the middle ages and the magisterial reformation and developments in 19th and 20th century. My point is central doctrines remained the same but each movement, advancement of culture science has enhanced or changed the way we understand the doctrine creation is a good example. John Fitzgerald says: This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Marriage Equality Curate Diocese of Nebraska John Light says: July 7, 2015 at 5:36 pm Go to the General Convention website. You can see how both bishops and diocesan deputations voted on these resolutions.When you get there you may have to search for legislative actions or votes. I found it but don’t offhand recall where!!Bruce November 1, 2015 at 10:00 pm How unbelievably arrogant and self-righteous for you to declare that you’re “OK” with “letting” gay people do this and do that, but YOU “draw the line” at treating them fully equally. And Maryln Harms, I won’t even take the time or energy to break down your self-righteous all you can eat buffet. Let’s just suffice it to say that the Pharisees and Sadducees would be jealous of your religious piety and judgment. The Christ only ever showed anger and disgust with ONE group of people; no, not prostitutes; no, not tax collectors; no, not homosexuals; no, not atheists or witches or Samaritans or “sinners”. The ONLY people he showed utter disgust for were self-righteous, judgmental, hypocritical, busy body religious leaders and lay people who beat people up with laws and regulations and judgments and exclusions. You cannot provide a SINGLE verse of scripture in red letters where the Christ EVER condemned or chastised or shamed or excluded or marginalized or “drew a line” for ANYONE other than judgmental religious people. I challenge you to do so. Then maybe you’ll consider re-evaluating what it means to be “Christ-like” and “Christian”.Gandhi had it absolutely right when he said, “I like your Christ. I don’t like your Christians. They’re so unlike your Christ.” Esteban De la Cruz says: July 2, 2015 at 7:13 pm “I know because His Word tells me. I know when I sin because I know His Word.”And when I disagree with His Word I can deny that it is His word and get my church’s leadership to vote that parts of His Word are misinterpreted or in error in their inclusion in the book that is kind of God’s Word. Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest John Galt says: July 1, 2015 at 11:50 pm And how can the Episcopal Church, or ANY church, reconcile this:Paul; Romans 1: 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Bruce Garner says: Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Comments navigation Newer comments Comments are closed. Rev Peter A Williams says: July 2, 2015 at 3:30 pm I feel the same way. I have been an Episcopalian for 61 years and my husband for 67 years. I am not proud to be an Episcopalian!! July 2, 2015 at 7:23 pm There are eight passages of scripture, four in the old testament and four in the new testament that condemn same sex relationships. So, it appears that when churches perform a same sex ceremony, it becomes meaningless. There is already a discussion in many quarters to allow threesome marriages. Where does it end? While the church is at it, why not rewrite the last section of Revelation which says, “”And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.”If people are in a same sex relationship, make it a legal civil union, but not performed by the church. Otherwise, it is just blowing in the wind. Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector Bath, NC July 2, 2015 at 1:18 am Only a few months passed after I was baptized (in 1996) before the realization sank in that I couldn’t in all conscience remain a Southern Baptist. Looking around for another denomination, I settled on the Episcopal Church, for the most part because of its stands on inclusion — both of women in the ordained ministry and of LGBT people generally. After all these years, many of which have been spent apart from belonging in any formal way to the church, I am proud of the decision I made then to begin learning more about what it means to be a Christian — and to allow myself to begin being formed in my Christian faith as an Episcopalian.Today, I was watching live as the church made its decision to finally provide marriage equality to all couples, and I can’t find the words to describe my excitement and my gratitude. After all these decades of debate, everybody can now take advantage of the same human rights. Even though I wasn’t in Salt Lake City today for the church’s decision, at least not physically, in another sense, and a true, I was there, in mind and heart, “and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior!” Sue Blake says: July 3, 2015 at 1:39 pm I was introduced to the Church in 1969 by my future wife. The church and I had shared beliefs, and I felt comforted. I had something that I could believe in. I wore my Episcopal Service Cross with my dog tags during my time with the Navy during Vietnam. Despite watching the United States go down the drain, I always thought that the Church was the one thing I could hang on to.Times change. At this time with a corrupt President, corrupt Congress, and corrupt Supreme Court, I could no longer serve the country if called upon. And now, I no longer have a Church I can believe in.As Ronald Regan once said, “I didn’t leave the Democrat Party, they left me”I am not leaving the Episcopal Church, it left me.There is probably a Christian church out there that will adhere to their beliefs and the Bible.Goodbye Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Youth Minister Lorton, VA In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 allen brady says: Press Release Service Bill Shehee says: July 2, 2015 at 11:59 am This is the same gnashing of teeth and rote, inapt pronouncement of Bible verses as followed racial integration. No, race and sexuality are not the same thing – but they both fall under the mantle of justice, and the correlation is exemplified by the near identical reactions then and now. In another decade or 2, these people and churches who fell momentarily behind will come around – most will point at decisions like this and say “See? WE the good Christians were at the forefront of this justice!” while those few who doggedly retain their outdated prejudices will be looked at in the same light as we would now look at an unabashed segregationist. History will put them in the exact same bucket. I am proud that my church actually IS at the forefront of bending the moral arc toward justice. General Convention approves marriage equality July 2, 2015 at 1:19 pm We Episcopalians are Christians.We are not Fundamentalist Christians.Jesus was not a Fundamentalist.Why is this so hard for some in our denomination to understand?It’s really not that difficult.Please forgive me if I am not sympathetic to the dissenters on this.We are Christians, not Fundamentalist.Listen to the Spirit. SHE is not fundamentalist, either. New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books July 2, 2015 at 7:54 am Next the Episcopal Ch will decide to toss the bible out. Or have they already decided that? I thank GOD my ch is still bible based. July 2, 2015 at 12:47 pm The first reply above, quoting from Romans, manifests a pervasive condition/problem in our church: reading the Bible Without the hard work of understanding the original languages, the cultural context in which authors wrote (in this instance Paul), and the larger intention of the writer. One expects literalists and conservative evangelicals to throw bits of Scripture about, but not Episcopal clergy (yes: you, too, dear bishops who we trust have been well-schooled in critical scriptural methods) and parishioners whose knowledge of scripture has been guided by such methods. The first question is Not how church practices might be reconciled with one scripture verse But rather: What did Paul intend in his context? July 2, 2015 at 1:00 pm Many, many people have done exactly what you ask – to search the Scriptures, and pray for God’s wisdom, and have come to a very different conclusion about God’s love and plan for this world and the next. Even if you think they are deadly wrong, extending the gracious idea that perhaps other people in the Church also pray and read the Bible seems the least we can do when we disagree. I hear your fear – but will not accept your accusations. If you are at all interested in the ways that people in support of marriage equality have come to their positions in a theological and scriptural way, I might suggest the book “A Letter To My Congregation” by Ken Wilson. General Convention, Submit an Event Listing Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET July 3, 2015 at 2:08 am You can also reconcile this: Leviticus 18:22 “DO NOT practice HOMOSEXUALITY having SEX with another MAN as with a woman, IS A DETESTABLE SIN” (New International Version). Maybe YOUR CHURCH may not be reconciled with the LORD anymore. Randall Abbott says: Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Jones says: Featured Events By Sharon SheridanPosted Jul 1, 2015 Bruce Garner says: Carol Powell says: July 2, 2015 at 7:27 am Romans 2:1 July 7, 2015 at 5:34 pm I doubt that you will find any denomination that takes all of Scripture literally. It really cannot be done. We have been using passages taken out of context as rocks to sling at each other for too many decades. The Hebrew Scriptures are about the relationship of the People of Israel and their God. Do you observe all that is in that portion of the Bible? I seriously doubt it. The dietary rules and ritualistic purity rules must be kept in the context of the time and culture that they were written and in the context of the larger narrative of which they are a part. The Christian Testament is the story of the relationship between God and humankind through the death, resurrection and ascension of God in the form of Jesus Christ. Again, the narratives must be kept in the context of their larger narrative and the time and place of the culture in which they were written. They can’t be cherry picked to throw at other children of God. Scripture is not a “handbook for humans.” It is the narrative about God and the people of God over several thousand years. It was written and translated by human beings, however divinely inspired they may have been. We know there are errors in translation because we learn of them in searching the various ancient languages which is their source. The bottom line is that we are to first love God and then to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. It could not be simpler. There are no exemptions or exceptions provided, so we should not find ways to exclude either. I’m sorry you cannot make room for all at the table. But I would gently remind you that it is not your table or my table. It is God’s table and it is God who issues invitations and we don’t get to pass on the guest list. Why is it that I always make room for you but you never reciprocate? It’s been that way for decades. When do we all understand that all of us can be at the table together regardless of our differences? God must surely weep.Bruce Garner August 12, 2015 at 10:00 am I am happy to learn not all Episcopal churches have ” caved in” to the world’ s ways. I have no qualms with practicing homosexuals worshipping in any church of their choice, but definitely draw a line in the sand when it comes to sanctioning a marriage between same sex couples in God’s house. Yes, they should be accepted with open arms and a genuine godly love from the congregation and clergy, but definitely not allowed to marry in a religious ceremony. God never changes, His Word and rules have not changed, nor will He tolerate this abomination much longer. Wow unto those doing this in “God’s name”!!!! The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group July 7, 2015 at 7:06 pm I invite those who say same-sex unions are against the Bible to read II Sam. 1:26 but more importantly, Our Lord’s Words in Matt. 19:12 and most importantly of all, St. Luke 17:34, all from the KJV with the latter reading the same in Greek as in the King’s own. Quibblers with that should be aware that the italicized word(s) in that should not be “men” but rather “in one bed” substituting for “on couch one.” But indeed as Jesus says many times, let him hear who has ears to hear. July 3, 2015 at 4:30 pm Amen, couldn’t have said it better. Lived through the 60’s civil rights movement desegregation etc which is ongoing. I hear the same arguments and rants now, once this issue was labeled discrimination it was only a matter of time. Have never been prouder of our church. allen brady says: Rector Smithfield, NC M Hayden Sutherland says: Laurie Eiserloh says: Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 July 2, 2015 at 8:35 pm And like Reverend Peter, Mormons first and foremost claim to be Christians.That’s the lure in LDS evangelization. Yet as they interpret the Bible the do not believe in the deity of Christ. But how we as culturally enlightened and progressive Christians choose to interpret and vote on the Bible is truly God’s way and everyone else is bigoted and denying God’s true perspective on sin. Brings to mind Matthew 7: 21-23. But maybe that’s part of God’s word that had been misinterpreted or should be excised from the Bible. Let’s vote!“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Joe barker says: Rector Collierville, TN Rector Martinsville, VA July 2, 2015 at 1:30 am The Church has always responded to cultural changes. It has to minister to people where they are and how they are. We pray with and for the people who rejoice and pray with and for the people who are not yet ready to rejoice. God is with us. All. Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC John Galt says: Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Pittsburgh, PA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA July 2, 2015 at 1:51 pm Well surprisingly the text of the service is carefully neutral so as not to invoke God’s name or blessing.

I am OK with gay priests and obviously gay church members, we should love them all regardless. However, I must draw the line at the church changing the definition of Holy Matrimony to include gay couples. I will now begin a search for a new church that will still stand by the Bible. Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Shreveport, LA July 3, 2015 at 8:34 pm It appears that Will and Ariel Durant’s publication titled ” The Lessons of History” no longer applies. Relevant text from “The Lessons of History”[1]Intellect is a vital force of history, but it can also be a dissolvent and destructive power. Out of every hundred new ideas, ninety-nine or more will probably be inferior to the traditional responses which they propose to replace. No one man or woman, however brilliant or well informed, can come in one lifetime to such fullness of understanding as to safely judge and dismiss the customs or institutions of his or her society, for these are the wisdom of generations after centuries of experiment in the laboratory of history.Therefore, the conservative who resists change is as valuable as the radical who proposes it-perhaps as much more valuable as roots are more vital than grafts. It is good that new ideas should be heard, for the sake of the few that can be used; but it is also good that new ideas should be compelled to go through the mill of objection and opposition. This is the trial heat that innovations must survive before being allowed to enter the human race. It is good that the old should resist the young, and that the young should prod the old. Out of this tension, as out of the strife of the sexes and the classes, comes a creative tensile strength, a stimulated development, a secret and basic unity and movement of the whole.——————————————————————————–[1]Durant, W. and A.

She envisioned the house as an anchor, establishing a new center for the family, and a place where she could pursue her writing. The open plan of the main floor functions as a hall, permitting the entire extended family to congregate, socialize, and dine together. The kitchen is designed to be functional yet porous, integrating it with the living and dining areas. The master suite above, cantilevered from the corner of the house, doubles as a writing retreat.Save this picture!© Sozinho ImageryProblem-SolvingThe main problem this project addresses is reconciling the requirement for such a large room in a house on a typical Seattle residential lot, and doing so in an elegant manner. The house is sited along the south edge of the lot, maximizing landscaping and maintaining a comfortable pedestrian streetscape. Private outdoor area is reserved for the back yard along the alley. In order to maximize congregation space on the main floor, all other functions are compressed along the south edge of the house. A custom bookshelf was designed to house the family book collection. A long gallery wall upstairs displays a photo collection of family and ancestors.Save this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sozinho ImagerySave this picture!Floor PlanEnvironmental SensitivityThe siding is a panelized concrete product, selected for its durability and ultra-low maintenance.

This meek house, nestled in a small village, Dakivali, in Maharashtra, is an anecdote of the aspirations of a paddy farmer, also a retired school teacher, who dreamt of building a modest cost-effective home within his Gaothan (the inner core of a village). Positioned on a tight 5000 sq.ft. plot abutting the dusty katchcha village road, the site was once a wasteland, with a small bamboo grove on it. Flanked on two sides by traditional village homes of a closely knit farming community, the house had to strike a balance between being participatory as well as reclusive.Save this picture!© unTAG Architecture & InteriorsToiling most of his life in the paddy fields, this farmer wanted his retirement home to also have a connection with nature alongside a sense of affordable comfort. With a meager budget of Rs.22 lacs given to us, the challenge was how to explore an efficient way for a farmer to live in his old age, yet retain the essence of a countryside life.Save this picture!© unTAG Architecture & InteriorsOur design intends to weave this 1400 sq.ft. home through a traditional unpretentious central courtyard, locally called Aangan, circumscribing the primary functions together around it. Being the immediate visual aspect from the living, this Aangan with a young champa tree, creates a comforting microclimate, lowering the ambient temperature by 3 to 5℃. It acts as a safe green haven, establishing a direct connect with the elements, which the client always desired for.Save this picture!© unTAG Architecture & InteriorsThis inward looking house, which ensures the privacy of its residents from being exposed to the village road, also has an extroverted road-facing entrance veranda on the west, serving as the vital visual connect with the traversing villagers. Strategically located westwards, next to the existing bamboo grove, one witnesses a breezy sunset seen behind the distant Sahyadri hills, while seated on a traditional zhoola. An integral element of most tropical homes in India, the veranda acts as a threshold, a transitory space between the village’s public realm and a reclusive indoor living.Save this picture!© unTAG Architecture & InteriorsThe larger yet controlled openings, establish a connection with the immediate landscape, make the compact indoor spaces feel spacious, bringing in precise amount of light, also facilitating cross-ventilation. Costs are drastically reduced by optimizing the floor plate, by proposing multi-functional spaces, like the double height dining-cum-pooja space, which also serves as a library, integrated with a metal staircase to access the upper floor.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!Living and Inner Court SectionDust and privacy being a major concern, the house is entered through a landscaped entrance courtyard, enclosed by low-cost locally sourced concrete flyash block jaali acting as buffer to screen off the dust, and cut-off direct visibility from the village road. The jali screen also serves as a climate control measure by breaking off the harsh east and west sunlight, while also letting the breezes flow through it.Save this picture!© unTAG Architecture & InteriorsThe orientation of this courtyard house with respect to wall surfaces, openings and projections has been conceived through passive solar strategies to achieve optimum thermal comfort for the inhabitants. The terraces have been painted white, to reduce incident heat gain. With a low embodied energy material palette of bricks procured from nearby kilns, locally manufactured concrete fly-ash blocks, plastered walls and Indian kotah stone floor, this village home fosters economic and ecological sustainability.Save this picture!© unTAG Architecture & InteriorsRecharge pits have been introduced at key locations on site, to channelize the rainwater runoff into ground. Wastewater has been treated through phytoremediation and subsequently used for landscaping the surrounds. The cost-effective productive architecture alongside the green initiatives in landscaping is establishing new standards for an affordable sustainable living within the nearby farming communities.Save this picture!© unTAG Architecture & InteriorsInhabiting this meek abode, our dear client is a proud owner of a village home, exemplary of an affordable luxury, which he enjoys residing, nurturing and aging gracefully with it. This humble home of a farmer exemplifies that sustainability need not always come at huge costs, but can be practiced at grass root level too, through simple DIY solutions.Save this picture!© unTAG Architecture & InteriorsProject gallerySee allShow lessTea house in Tadotsu / Takashi Okuno & AssociatesSelected ProjectsSonoma Retreat / Studio Sarah WillmerSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Dakivali, Maharashtra 421312, IndiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Online balloon races offer fundraising alternative to balloon releases

first_imgOnline balloon races offer fundraising alternative to balloon releases Howard Lake | 21 January 2009 | News Balloons_balloonrace_1232462868.com8.1 KB Advertisement Balloon suppliers balloon.com have launched an interactive online balloon race as a fundraising tool for schools and charities.Balloon releases have been criticised by organisations such as the Marine Life Conservation Trust because of their environmental impact, although balloon producers claim that “latex balloons are 100% biodegradable”.Organisations keen to continue with the fun of a balloon release now have an online alternative. As such, events run using balloonrace.com can take place at any time of year, not just summer. Participants can be based anywhere with an Internet connection.Balloonrace.com suggest that online balloons are offered for a donation of £2. Supporters can then ‘boost’ their balloon to make it go further through answering trivia questions, playing games or making donations. The company suggests that online balloon races can therefore have an educational element.Donations are handled via a Paypal account, so organisations need to set one up to benefit. Balloonrace.com offer a page for the charity to add details about the cause together with photos.You choose the start and end date of the online balloon races, and they last for a maximum of two weeks. There are 14 boost games, 1 game per day.You can start from as few as 100 balloons, but you can purchase more balloons if you need them. Event holders will receive an automatic alert if the number of available balloons drops too low.Organisers can choose the prize for the balloon that travels the furthest. Balloonrace.com suggest seeking a prize donated by a sponsor but you could also offer a cash prize.After the race balloonrace.com will calculate the winners and display them on a scrolling leaderboard on the participating charity’s website, and this will remain visible for four weeks.www.balloonrace.com About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The Big Curry, The Soldiers’ Charity’s major fundraising initiative, is underway this month, with support from Sharwood’s. The campaign was launched at the National Army Museum in Chelsea and runs through the month, as families are encouraged to hold their own curry themed events to raise money for the charity, which is committed to giving lifetime support to serving and former soldiers and their families.Sharwood’s has launched Limited Edition Bhut Jolokia curry sauce, its hottest ever curry, to coincide with the campaign. It is made using a chili which is over 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce, the “Bhut Jolokia”. 10p for every jar sold will be donated to The Soldiers’ Charity.The idea of the Big Curry was the brainchild of troops who were stationed abroad as a fun way to raise much needed funds for The Soldiers’ Charity. Indeed, the British curry was created for the British Army; in the 18th and 19th centuries the East India Company developed anglicised versions of Indian dishes for the 20,000 British soldiers who were stationed in the country.Emma Harvey, Director National Fundraising and Communications at The Soldiers’ Charity said: “Curry and the British Army go hand in hand. We’re delighted to be working with Sharwood’s on the Big Curry and the money raised by the sale of the Bhut Jolokia curry sauce will be used to fund grants for serving and former soldiers in need as well as specialist charities that help soldiers and their families, aiding their rehabilitation and long term welfare.”Sharwood’s Limited Edition Bhut Jolokia sauce is available from ASDA and Sainsbury’s with a recommended retail price of £1.49.

Man accused of terrorism charges cleared to come to Donegal on holiday

first_img Twitter Homepage BannerNews Man accused of terrorism charges cleared to come to Donegal on holiday North Belfast dissident republican Dee Fennell – who is currently awaiting trial on terrorist charges – has had his bail conditions changed to allow him to holiday in Donegal.The 34-year old, from Torrens Avenue, made an application to Belfast Crown Court to amend his bail conditions this week.Dee Fennell is due to stand trial later this year accused of encouraging acts of terrorism, inviting support for the IRA and addressing a meeting to encourage support for the IRA.All three offences are dated April 5, 2015 and all fall under the Terrorism Act 2000.He has denied all three charges.During his application, Judge Gordon Kerr QC was told the Crown was opposed to the variation by a prosecution barrister who said that whilst awaiting trial on terrorist offences, Fennell “has been arrested, questioned and reported” on suspicion of murder and membership of a proscribed organisation.Telling the court that his client “has not been charged with the murder”, Fennell’s solicitor Peter Corrigan asked for the bail variation to allow him to go to Donegal on holiday for a week.Judge Kerr granted the variation and ordered that Fennell report to the Garda in Donegal twice this week, and also asked that both the house number and phone number of the cottage where Fennell is staying be provided to police.

We were extremely excited to be able to donate that much to the Miracle Field Playground project.”The winner of the wildlife print was April Sneed, assistant to the CEO.Sneed’s photograph was of her three sons following an early morning duck hunt.“As we were coming from the pond around 7 a.m., I turned and took the picture,” Sneed said. “What makes it so special is that my granddaddy’s barn is just behind my sons. I get teary-eyed knowing my granddaddy, Lloyd Green, would be so proud to know that his great-grandsons were hunting on his land.”Wofford presented the $552 donation to Lisa Holmes, TRD programs coordinator, and Brian Meadows, who joins Holmes on the Miracle Field Playground committee.“We want to thank the staff at TRMC for their generous donation,” Holmes said. “We appreciate their support.

About $80,000 is needed to put the fundraiser over the top. The entry fee for each photograph was $5 and $1 per vote for the “best photograph.” The photo with the most votes would win a large, framed National Wild Turkey Federation print signed by wildlife artist, Hayden Lambson, and donated by Wofford.The bulk of the photographs entered were, of course, of trophy deer but there were also photographs of duck and turkey hunters and fishermen. Then, there were wildlife photos that included bears in the mountains, a stretched-neck turkey and even a trapped possum. There were shots of the moon and a lightning storm to add to the variety of the Miracle Bucks competition.“Everyone really enjoyed looking at the photographs and not just the hospital staff,” Herring said. “Visitors would stop and look and some of them voted.”When all the votes were cast, the Miracle Bucks contest had raised $276.last_img read more

Total, Apache make fourth hydrocarbon discovery in Suriname’s Block 58

first_imgThe discovery was made by the Keskesi East-1 well, which encountered a total of 63m net pay of hydrocarbons Apache transferred operatorship of Block 58 to Total earlier this month. (Credit: Anita starzycka from Pixabay) Total and Apache have made their fourth hydrocarbon discovery in the offshore Surinamese concession Block 58 through the drilling of the Keskesi East-1 well.The previous three discoveries are Maka Central, which was made in January 2020, Sapakara West in April 2020, and Kwaskwasi in July 2020.The latest one, which is an oil and gas discovery, was made after the Keskesi East-1 well was drilled by a water depth of nearly 725m.At this depth, the wildcat well intersected a total of 63m net pay of hydrocarbons, which was made up of 58m net black oil, volatile oil, and gas pay in Campano-Maastrichtian reservoirs, and 5m of net volatile oil pay in Santonian reservoirs.According to Apache, fluid samples show API oil gravities of around 27-28 degrees in the Campanian reservoir and 35-37 degrees in the Santonian.Apache CEO and president John Christmann said: “We are very pleased to announce our fourth consecutive discovery in Block 58 at Keskesi, which confirms oil in the eastern portion of the block.“We are excited to commence the appraisal program on our initial discoveries and extend our Block 58 exploration program to the north in 2021.”Total, Apache continue drilling for deeper Neocomian aged targetsThe partners are carrying out drilling to pursue deeper Neocomian aged targets.In line with the terms of its joint venture deal, Apache transferred operatorship of Block 58 to Total, earlier this month. Both the companies have a 50% stake each in the offshore Surinamese block.Apache will continue to be the operator of the Keskesi well until the Noble Sam Croft drillship is released.Total exploration senior vice president Kevin McLachlan said: “We are delighted to announce this new discovery, which confirms this first exploration campaign as a full success and adds to the proven resource base.“We are also excited, as new operator of the block, to start the appraisal operations designed to characterize the 2020 discoveries, while in parallel start a second exploration campaign on this prolific block in 2021.”last_img read more

Those selected provide mentoring guidance to develop the foundations for the transition into Naval life.DARDANELLES is one of the many exercises conducted at Creswell that prepare the officers for specialised category training. It is part of the ongoing professional development provided by Creswell on behalf of Navy.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 25, 2013; Image: Australian Navy View post tag: Teamwork View post tag: skillslast_img read more

Maple Leaf fails to find buyer

first_imgMaple Leaf Bakery has confirmed its closure within the next few months, as a deal with a potential buyer fell through to save its Walsall site, according to the Express and Star.The bakery manufacturer, which has been based on Raleigh Street since the 1800s, said it was in talks with a buyer last month during a 90-day consulation period to try and preserve the company’s longstanding history at the West Midlands location.However, a total of 236 employees felt the blow during the Christmas period as the company announced the buyout was not to go ahead, with the bakery due to close between February and March, reported the paper.The move has come despite the Canada Bread-owned Maple Leaf Bakery announcing a 3% increase in third-quarter profits in 2011.Paul Clipson, HR director at Maple Leaf Bakery, told British Baker last year that the business would be focusing on its speciality bread brands, such as The New York Bakery Co, for 2012, which helped accumulate more than £80m profits for the third quarter to 30 September 2011, compared to £78.2m in the previous year.last_img read more

FSA warns levels of cancer-chemical underestimated

first_imgThe level of public exposure to the cancer-inducing chemical acrylamide could be higher than previously thought, due to people ignoring manufacturer cooking instructions.According to research by the Food Standards Agency (FSA), public knowledge of acrylamide is poor and cooking instructions are often ignored or glanced over. This undermines previous estimations of acrylamide consumption, which are based on manufacture instructions being followed.Acrylamide forms when high-starch foods such as bread and biscuits are cooked. The concentration of the chemical increases with cooking length and temperature and the FSA advised bread should only be lightly toasted.It has been linked to nerve and reproductive system damage as well as cancer. However, the European Food Standards Agency (EFSA) risk assessment, published 4 June, 2015, concluded concentrations in food only posed a cancer threat.There is no legal limit for acrylamide in food, though an EU limit of 0.1 μg/L exists for drinking water. European Commission (EC) ‘indicative values’ also exist for food groups considered to contribute most to dietary acrylamide exposure to advise manufacturers on acceptable levels in their products.The FSA said: “Reducing acrylamide levels in food will not be easy, as acrylamide forms naturally in some foods when they are cooked or heat-treated.“There are many variables that can impact on the final level of acrylamide in a given food, ranging from crop variety, storage conditions, agronomic factors, seasonal variation and then the processing or cooking conditions.”ReducedAccording to the report, acrylamide could be reduced by reducing the quantity of asparagine, an amino acid which turns into acrylamide during cooking, in food.The FSA suggested it could take a long time to develop low-asparagine crops but that countries which allowed genetic modification have an advantage. It said the USA had already developed and passed as safe a low-acrylamide producing genetically engineered potato.For the baking industry, reducing acrylamide in bread and toast might be made possible by asparagine-consuming strains of baker’s yeast. Canada-based Renaissance Ingredients has been selecting non-genetically engineered strains which it claims can reduce acrylamide levels in bread and toast by an average of 80%.last_img read more

BLOG: Speaker Turzai’s Extremist Budget

first_img The Blog House and Senate Republican leaders yesterday abandoned the bi-partisan budget agreement they made with Governor Wolf that makes historic investments in education – including an additional $485 million for pre-K through 12 education – and is also balanced, paid for and begins to fix our deficit.After Tuesday, when Republican rank-and-file members joined Democrats to buck their leaders, the House was one vote of the chamber away on Wednesday from passing a bi-partisan, compromise budget. Instead Speaker Turzai sent everyone home for the holidays with no action and the Senate Republicans, who caved to Speaker Turzai and tea party extremists, passed Speaker Turzai’s budget that cuts $95 million from Pennsylvania schools.Abandoning all pretenses of compromise, Republican lawmakers in Harrisburg went back to the future… Wednesday had opened with hope of a House vote on the Senate’s compromise $30.8 billion budget. With increased funding for education, Wolf had agreed to sign that compromise bill, but when Democrats claimed they had the votes to pass it and send it to the governor, House Republican leaders would not allow a vote. [KDKA, 12/23/15]We always knew it would be difficult to change the Harrisburg status quo, especially with entrenched Republican insiders beholden to special interests and right-wing extremists, but we never imagined Republican leaders would once again turn their backs on Pennsylvania’s schools and our children.

Sexual assault: McGregor awaits physical test, video evidence

first_imgRelatedPosts Sexual assault charge: UFC superstar denies allegation, released without charge Mayweather mocks McGregor Conor McGregor retires from UFC Conor McGregor is waiting for the results of “key physical tests” and “the examination of film evidence” before learning whether he will be re-arrested over alleged sexual assault and indecent exposure.The Ultimate Fighting Championship star was taken into police custody on the French holiday island of Corsica last Friday, following a complaint from a young woman. She has claimed the 32-year-old Irishman assaulted her and showed off his manhood following a heavy drinking session in the upmarket port town of Calvi on September 6.Teofimo Lopez discuses the highly-anticipated upcoming fight against Vasyl Lomachenko, who is the favourite and his strategy in the ring.McGregor was released on Saturday without charge, but the criminal case is still active and he could be summoned before a magistrate later this week.“Key physical tests were carried out on the suspect, but the results will not be known until after the weekend,” an investigating source said.“These tests are of a routine nature following incidents like this, but they take time, to make sure there is no doubt about them. “It is also possible that the incident being complained about was filmed. It took place in a very busy place, where fixed cameras are situated everywhere.“Lots of holidaymakers would also have been filming and taking pictures on their phones, so they also need to be spoken to.”Tests for alcohol and drugs are common when suspects are arrested by police in France, especially following accusations of assault.Formal allegations were made against McGregor to police last Thursday, by an as-yet unnamed complainant, believed to be the woman victim.This led to police raiding McGregor’s £3 million yacht, which was named locally as the “Dave Ocean”, the next day. McGregor made his way to the local Tramariccia Gendarmerie by bike on Friday, surrounded by bodyguards, and was then grilled by an examining magistrate and judicial police.“The suspect was arrested and placed in custody by the judicial authorities,” said a spokesman for the Bastia prosecutor. “He was released on Saturday.”Tags: Conor McGregorCorsicaUltimate Fighting Championshiplast_img read more

Lakers beat Mexico, earn playoff date with unbeaten Solvay

first_imgRarely in its recent annals had the Cazenovia football team ever needed to worry about whether it would make the Section III playoffs in the last week of the regular season.Yet the Lakers dealt with this stress quite well, venturing to Mexico Friday night and earning a comfortable 27-6 victory over the Tigers to win for the fourth time in five weeks.That result, combined with Central Valley Academy’s 20-7 win over Vernon-Verona-Sherrill, allowed Cazenovia to finish alone in fourth place in the B East division behind the Thunder, plus Oneida and New Hartford. Romagnoli helped wrap things up with a 37-yard scoring run in the third quarter as the Lakers’ defense nearly got a third shutout in four weeks, keeping Mexico off the board until the fourth quarter, when the game was long in hand.Cazenovia held the Tigers to 144 total yards as John Frega had four tackles and three assists, with Vito Borio and Keegan Bailey each getting three tackles. A.J. Rothfeld assisted on six tackles and made two of his own.The Lakers had 394 total yards, 253 of them on the ground as Romagnoli gained 116 yards on 11 carries and Freyer had 89 yards on seven carries. Between them, Romagnoli and Freyer completed six of 14 passes for 134 yards.Meanwhile, Chittenango, who will miss the sectional playoffs, saw its five-game skid end at Camden, where it started fast, but ultimately needed a fourth-quarter safety to beat the Blue Devils 16-14.The Bears’ defense ended up keying the outcome, first by scoring on a Elias Clement fumble return as Nate Addison added a four-yard TD run to make it 14-0 through one period.Camden fought back, tying it 14-14 by halftime on short scoring runs by Eric Mitchell (one yard) and Mason Gerber (two yards). And it stayed even until the final period, when the Chittenango defense returned to trap the Blue Devils in its own end zone for the winning two points. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: CazenoviaChittenangofootball And it sets up a highly-anticipated sectional Class B opening-round game next Friday as the Lakers venture to Al Merola Field to face undefeated, state no. 9-ranked Solvay, a once-great program who fell on hard times before roaring back to life this fall and making the playoffs for the first time in more than a decade.With nothing guaranteed following its Oct. 11 home defeat to CVA, Cazenovia quickly gained control against a Mexico side that had lost six in a row. Ty Freyer got the Lakers on the board, scoring on a 20-yard run in the first quarter.Two more scoring drives followed in the second period, Ryan Romagnoli dashing 21 yards to the end zone and, minutes later, Cazenovia striking through the air as Romagnoli’s pass to Evan Murray turned into a 60-yard touchdown.last_img read more

Despite shaky past, Syracuse finishes strong, tops Loyola

first_imgIt was becoming an ugly trend. Before Syracuse hosted Loyola in the Carrier Dome Friday night, Syracuse had lost three games to ranked opponents by just a goal apiece. With SU trailing the Greyhounds in the second half, it appeared as if the Orange was in for another disappointing finish.But on this night there was a different feel down the stretch.The No. 10 Orange (9-4, 4-1 Big East) was able to stand its ground on Friday, defeating No. 13 Loyola, 13-11, in front of 412 fans at the Carrier Dome. Though SU dismantled Villanova (7-6, 0-5) Sunday, 18-3, the real challenge of the weekend came on Friday night. Coming off a heartbreaking one-goal loss to No. 11 Notre Dame last Sunday, Syracuse needed to prove to itself that it could defeat a fellow Big East power, especially in a tight contest.‘I think we came in today knowing that we had to come away with a win,’ senior attack Halley Quillinan said. ‘We knew that we were going to face a strong Big East team looking to come in here and upset us in the Dome. At the end, we kept our composure,’ The Orange came out of the gate with a vengeance, scoring three quick goals in the first eight minutes to take an early lead. Loyola responded with three goals of its own before senior midfielder Christina Dove gave the Orange a lead with her first goal of the game. The Greyhounds scored three of the last four goals in the half to take a 6-5 lead into the break.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU had been here before. Deadlocked in tight games against quality opponents, the Orange has found itself on the short side of the stick more often than not this season. On Feb. 27 SU fell to No. 4 Virginia, 14-13. Then on March 21 the Orange was narrowly denied what would have been a monumental upset, losing to No. 1 Northwestern, 13-12. And then there’s the Notre Dame game, which proved especially damaging considering that it came at the hands of a Big East opponent.Syracuse knew that it couldn’t let another close one slip away.The second half didn’t begin as the Orange would have liked, as Loyola scored a little more than two minutes in for a two-goal lead, the Greyhounds’ largest of the evening. But about seven minutes into the half, the momentum began to turn.The Orange was outshot 18-8 in the first half as its offense rarely had the ball in its own territory. But suddenly Syracuse began to play a quicker game, moving the ball effectively and giving itself ample opportunities to score. After numerous missed shots, freshman attack Tegan Brown broke the ice with a free-position goal at the 20:29 mark.‘I think we just got our composure and our confidence back,’ Brown said. ‘We brought it together. We started talking and communicating again and decided to go at full pace.’Following Brown’s goal, the Orange began to wake up. SU scored three of the next five goals before freshman attack Michelle Tumolo scored what would be the eventual game-winner on a picture-perfect pass off a fast break.The Carrier Dome crowd erupted louder than it had all season, and the Orange never looked back en route to a victory.‘I think we were in a bit of a funk coming off the Notre Dame game,’ head coach Gary Gait said. ‘And I think they had a little bit of self-doubt. We just had to play the game, and instead of stopping to make passes and cutting at three-quarters speed, they decided to go at full speed.’Though Syracuse has not had a wealth of success in close games thus far, Quillinan admits that she enjoys when the games are tight. She believes that it brings out the best of her ability and gives her team a chip on its shoulder.Luckily for the Orange, that chip finally resulted in a win.‘I like close games,’ Quillinan said. ‘I like a battle. I like being competitive. I like walking in knowing that the other team is ready for a fight. To see the fire in some of my teammates’ eyes — like Michelle (Tumolo) and (freshman midfielder) Bridget Daley — that just makes me better and pushes me harder.’[email protected] Published on April 18, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

At 30-year anniversary of Syracuse’s first NCAA championship, former players reflect on historic campaign

first_imgThe 1983 Syracuse men’s lacrosse team had two uniforms: blue and white.Leading up to the ‘83 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Championship, the Orangemen were slated to wear their away blue uniforms against Johns Hopkins. But the team had other plans. Sophomore midfielder Brad Kotz, who was later named the tournament’s MVP, remembers the players urging coach Roy Simmons Jr. to implement a new color style.“We had never worn orange before that game,” Kotz said. “But we were the Orangemen, and it seemed only right to put on orange, like a tradition or something.”Simmons called to Syracuse to see if orange uniforms could be delivered to Rutgers. The team’s wish was granted and it was presented with new, orange jerseys prior to the game. The players thought they were upholding a tradition with the new shirts. In retrospect — 30 years and 11 national titles later — they were starting a far bigger one.Winning.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orangemen would go on to defeat Johns Hopkins 17-16 in the title game to capture the first national championship in school history. That 1983 squad is remembered for breaking ground. Members of the team recall their championship fondly, and know their role in catapulting SU into the national spotlight.“We had never experienced anything like that, not only as a team but as individuals,” then-sophomore defender Fred Cambria said. “It made us really start to appreciate the meaning of the word ‘team,’ because that is what that championship was all about.”It was like something out of a movie.Syracuse fell behind 12-5 in the middle of the third quarter and looked all but defeated. But then something clicked, something that none of the players will ever be able to explain.It started with Darren Lawlor’s goal late in the third quarter. Then Kotz and fellow sophomore Tim Nelson, both All-Americans, put the Orangemen onto their backs. Nelson poetically quarterbacked SU’s offense while Kotz started winning every faceoff and scoring at will. The result was eight straight goals that ended with an exclamation point.“When Randy Lundblad scored the goal that iced it I remember getting onto my knees and sliding at half field,” Nelson said. “I didn’t know what else to do, we shocked ourselves.”It wasn’t that the Orangemen weren’t used to winning. They were 13-1 on the season before beating Johns Hopkins, and the program was known for churning out competitive teams. But the team was also used to playing second fiddle to the national prominence of programs like Johns Hopkins and North Carolina.Heading into the 1983 championship game, Johns Hopkins had 39 championships, four in the NCAA. The Blue Jays were also celebrating the program’s 100th anniversary that season. Beating Johns Hopkins wasn’t just unlikely, it was unheard of.Still, the Orangemen’s determined upperclassmen weren’t going to let the past dictate the future.“We didn’t get the memo that we were supposed to lose that day,” then-senior defensive captain Jeff McCormick said. “Being a senior on a team with so much young talent wasn’t necessarily challenging. I just had to always let guys know that we could play with anyone, and I think we proved that.”Three decades later, Syracuse has become a perennial NCAA contender like the Johns Hopkins team that was supposed to derail its title hopes. The program now has 11 NCAA championships and 27 final four appearances, having become a destination for the nation’s top talent.“It’s not that we were angry being behind the Hopkins’ and UNC’s of the world, it’s just how it was,” said Derek Maltz Sr., a sophomore midfielder in 1983. “But what we did was huge. It allowed everyone to see what those inside the program knew all along. That Syracuse was one of the best lacrosse schools in the country, and is to this day.”The elder Maltz walked onto the team in 1982 and his son, Derek Maltz Jr., now starts for an SU team that will vie for the program’s 12th title Monday afternoon against Duke. Thirty years ago, Maltz and his teammates carved out a path. Now they watch as another generation attempts to walk down it.“To know that my son now has the opportunity to achieve the same thing I did is really special for me,” Maltz said. “Everyone deserves the feeling of winning a national championship. Everybody.”All of the members of the team have gone down different roads since a rare collection of ambition and talent brought them together on the biggest stage in college lacrosse.Cambria went into the entertainment business and won a National Sports Emmy for his work on the HBO sports documentary, “Assault in The Ring.” Kotz won two championships with the Philadelphia Wings of the National Lacrosse League after graduating from SU. He’s since settled down with his family outside of Washington D.C., owns a small business, and runs a lacrosse program that his two daughters play in. Maltz coordinates various defense agencies in the Washington D.C. area.Maltz, his former roommate Cambria, and Kotz met up in Philadelphia to watch SU’s 8-7 final four win over Denver on Friday. They’ll do so again for the title game on Monday.McCormick founded Saturn Partners in 1994 and was recently named the executive producer of the movie Crooked Arrows. He will be celebrating his wife’s birthday during SU’s championship quest, and will obtain updates any way he can.And then there’s Nelson, the team’s steady facilitator that refused to accept defeat. Nelson is currently the assistant vice president of advancement at Utica College, after serving as the men’s head lacrosse coach from 1999-05. He has been, and will continue to watch this year’s SU team from his couch.Regardless of where life has taken them since winning it all together, they all see this year’s team the same way.As the 2013 Orange head into a championship game of its own, they are predecessors to the success achieved 30 years ago, another symbolization of just how monumental that inaugural championship team was.“I won’t say we’re the best team in SU history, but we’ll always be the first,” Nelson said. “The fact that I’ll always be able to say that, well, that’s nice.” Comments Published on May 26, 2013 at 1:46 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Bubba Bolden will not start in Saturday’s game

first_imgSophomore safety Bubba Bolden will not start on Saturday, Helton said. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)No. 15 USC’s final practice before the start of the regular season brought with it a number of personnel updates for Saturday’s season opener against UNLV.Head coach Clay Helton walked into the post-practice press conference with a crumpled slip of paper in hand. On it lay the names of sophomore outside tackle Austin Jackson, senior linebacker Porter Gustin and redshirt senior tackle Toa Lobendahn, among others.Jackson will probably play, Helton said. Gustin might. Lobendahn is questionable. But the biggest name who will miss Saturday’s game will be starting safety Bubba Bolden, who is out of the lineup due to an undisclosed reason.“From a personnel standpoint, Bolden is not going to be available for the UNLV game Saturday,” Helton said at the press conference. “There’s no timetable for his return, and I can’t comment further at this time.”Until Helton made the announcement, it was believed that Bolden would make the first start of his career at safety against the Rebels.When pressed, Helton did not speak further.“Like I said, I have no comment further at this time right now,” he said.Redshirt freshman Isaiah Pola-Mao will start in Bolden’s place, Helton said, and redshirt sophomore C.J. Pollard and freshman Talanoa Hufanga will back him up.Pola-Mao redshirted his freshman year, and will get his first career start come Saturday.Hufanga, a true freshman from Crescent Valley High School in Oregon, might see action in his first-ever game as a Trojan as a result of Bolden’s absence. He finished his 2017 season with 44 tackles — seven of which were for a loss — a fumble recovery, and 35 receptions for a total of 696 yards. More injuriesHelton did provide details on other key injuries the Trojans have heading into the season, beginning with Jackson.“I know that from an injury standpoint we were talking about Jackson yesterday,” Helton said. “He looked very good today. Anticipate him playing in the game.”The 6-foot-6 sophomore only saw action in four games during his freshman campaign, but is slated to play against the Rebels after injuring his ankle during the offseason. Gustin’s name was also on the list, but Helton wasn’t quite as dead-set on the outside linebacker, who is still recuperating from a torn meniscus suffered on the third day of summer training camp. “Gustin looked very good again,” Helton said. “We will evaluate later.” He left out whether Gustin will see playing time on Saturday, which will likely be determined Friday according to Helton.Lobendahn, on the other hand, is still being evaluated with a pectoral strain.“Lobendahn did not practice today, still questionable for the game,” Helton said. “[He is] not looking as good as [Gustin or Jackson].”Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m. at the Coliseum on Saturday.last_img read more

Experts: Signature on will of Carole Baskin’s missing husband possibly forged

first_imgThe mystery surrounding the disappearance of ‘Tiger King’ star Carole Baskin’s second husband, Don Lewis, is deepening and may be pointing to a murder coverup.A pair of handwriting experts believe that the signatures on the will and power of attorney documents were ‘traced’ or forged.Don Lewis, second husband of “Tiger King” star Carole Baskin, disappeared in 1997 and the missing persons case has been closed allowing Carole to move om an marry husband number three.Recently, after the Netflix docuseries “Tiger King” reignited interest in Baskin’s missing husband, experts examined key documents and found that they were likely forgeries. The handwriting experts postulate that someone traced Lewis’ signature on his marriage license and copied it onto his will and power of attorney.Not only that, but one handwriting expert concluded that the signatures of the witnesses and the notary are also identical to one on another on both the will and power of attorney. This led the expert to conclude that one or both of each pair of signatures was forged through tracing.Netflix’s smash-hit “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” tells the bizarre tale of Joe Exotic, a zany gay polygamist owner of a private zoo in Oklahoma. He goes to battle with animal rights activist Carole Baskin and eventually gets convicted in a murder-for-hire plot to off her that lands him in prison for 22 years. Throughout the documentary, Joe and his compatriots repeatedly accused Carole of killing her second husband, millionaire Don Lewis.Twenty-three years ago, Don Lewis vanished while married to Carole. Five years later, a judge declared the missing husband dead, which permitted Carole Baskin to inherit his substantial estate.The new finding in the Clarion Ledger about Carole Baskin’s missing husband is the product of reporting by the renowned investigative reporter Jerry Mitchell, whose work was instrumental in reopening cold cases of unsolved civil rights era murders.last_img read more

Daniel Levy tops highest paid Prem execs list with staggering £7m last season

first_img“We have seen some of the biggest clubs in the world such as Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus take steps to reduce their costs.”Yesterday, having already taken steps to reduce costs, we ourselves made the difficult decision – in order to protect jobs – to reduce the remuneration of all 550 non-playing directors and employees for April and May by 20% utilising, where appropriate, the Government’s furlough scheme.”We shall continue to review this position.”2 Spurs’ new stadium opened in April 2019Credit: Getty – Contributor DANIEL LEVY was the highest paid executive in the Premier League last season, pocketing a staggering £7million.This figure comprised his £4m salary, as well as a £3m bonus for the completion of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium… despite it opening late.2 Daniel Levy pocketed £7m last seasonCredit: Getty Images – GettyManchester United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was previously thought to be the highest paid Prem chief.The 48-year-old received a salary of £3.16m for the 2018-19 campaign… but Levy’s pay for the same year has blown that figure out of the water.Levy’s basic “remuneration” came to an eye-watering £4m – before bonuses.The total amount paid out to board members for completion of the new stadium came to £3.9m – with Levy pocketing £3m of that – taking his annual earnings up to £7m in total.Tottenham Hotspur Stadium opened eight months later than planned in April 2019, when Spurs beat Crystal Palace 2-0 in the Premier League.The news of Levy’s earnings comes as part of Spurs’ declarations for the financial year – which saw them bag a £68.6m profit after tax.This figure was bolstered by the £108.4m earned from the team’s unlikely run to the Champions League final under Mauricio Pochettino last season.But it’s actually a decrease of £45m on the previous year.Levy has today also announced that Spurs have reduced the salaries of all 550 of the club’s non-playing staff by 20 per cent in line with the government’s furlough scheme, as they seek to combat the crippling financial effects of the coronavirus pandemic.The Club’s operations have effectively ceased, some of our fans will have lost their jobs and most will be worried about their future.Daniel LevyThe 58-year-old wrote in a statement on Spurs’ website: “We may be the eighth largest Club in the world by revenue according to the Deloitte survey but all that historical data is totally irrelevant as this virus has no boundaries.”The Club’s operations have effectively ceased, some of our fans will have lost their jobs and most will be worried about their future.”Our sponsors will be concerned about their businesses and our media partners have no certainty when we may play games again or whether we will be allowed to play in front of our fans.”In the meantime, the Club has an annual cost base running into hundreds of millions of pounds.LATEST SPURS NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerYOU KAN DO ITKlinsmann quit Spurs to win trophies but says Kane’s better off stayingTURBULENT PAIRINGDrogba and Mido had mid-flight brawl after stewardess prank went wrong Gary Lineker admits Harry Kane is right to think about his future at Tottenhamlast_img read more

West Brom slows down Leicester

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP):Leicester’s unlikely Premier League title challenge faltered with a 2-2 home draw with West Bromwich Albion yesterday, offering Tottenham the chance to go top in another twist to the most unpredictable race for the championship in years.Sunderland grabbed a 90th-minute equaliser to draw 2-2 with Crystal Palace and provisionally climb out of the bottom three and Bournemouth beat south coast rivals Southampton 2-0 to further ease their relegation concerns.Moving three points clear of the world’s richest league was nothing to celebrate for Leicester’s despondent players, who wasted a slew of late chances to put a provisional five-point gap over Spurs.”Just sometimes you can do everything, but the ball doesn’t want to go in,” said Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri, who has turned a team that narrowly avoided relegation last season into a title contender.Tottenham are away to West Ham today, while the title hopes of fellow contenders Arsenal and Manchester City third and fourth, respectively were also boosted by Leicester dropping points.CHELSEA EIGHTHResurgent Chelsea moved into eighth place and within sight of the European places by beating Norwich 2-1, extending their unbeaten league run since Jose Mourinho was fired before Christmas to 12 games. Young Brazilian left back Kenedy scored after 39 seconds the quickest goal of the season so far to set Chelsea on their way to victory.At the bottom, Aston Villa’s fans staged a mass walkout after the last-place team sunk nearer relegation with a 3-1 home loss to Everton. Villa Park had already started to empty when thousands of fans departed in the 74th minute when Villa were 3-0 down to mark the year the club was founded, 1874.”The situation is difficult, but we have to fight until the end,” said Villa manager Remi Garde, whose team is eight points from safety with 10 games left.The fourth official for the Bournemouth-Southampton match, Kevin Friend, was taken to hospital after collapsing and hitting his head on a dugout near the end of the first half.last_img read more

Senate Fails to Summon GSA Over US$1.75m Controversial Car Wash Budget

first_imgA request by Lofa County Senator for the Senate plenary to invite the General Services Agency, (GSA) to make a comprehensive report on the controversial US$1,750,320.00 of the 2011/2012 national budget said to have been given for car wash under the Fleet Management Policy, Tuesday, January 21, failed to materialize.Contained in a communiqué to his colleagues on their 3rd day sitting, Tuesday, that request is a follow-up to one sent that body last week.In that communication, Senator Tengbeh requested his colleagues to launch a full investigation into allegations of misappropriation of US$1,750,320.00 of the 2011/2012 budget that was said to have been given for car wash under a ‘Fleet Management Policy’; an investigation revealed that no car wash in the country received such an amount, he reported.In his rephrased communication, the Lofa County Senator asked the honorable Senate to have the General Services Agency (GSA) appear before the Senate plenary to make a comprehensive report on the use of the amount by car washers. The amount for car washers could not be accounted for as the beneficiaries were not identified in the report. The Fleet Management falls under the GSA authority.”“We believe that accountability, transparency and value for money in the use of public funds are essential elements for good governance,” he continued.Senator Tengbeh, who won the Senate seat on the ticket of the ruling Unity Party, argued that the Executive Branch of Government should account for its stewardship of tax payers’ money to the members of the legislature as well as the public in general.Meanwhile, the Senate voted on Tuesday and sent the communication to the committee on Ways, Means and Finance.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Liberians Blind-Eyed to Local Products’

first_imgArtifacts dealers in Liberia are expressing grave concern that Liberians are not interested in purchasing their products, thus making it difficult to survive by the business.Making the complaints in interviews on the compound of the United States Embassy in Monrovia where the 9th biannual Arts and Crafts Fair was carried on Saturday, May 10, vendors noted that the only advantage they have in the business is the products are durable, but other than that it takes a long time for them to realize the principal invested.Michael Stone, a vendor of Arts and Crafts said his products like other products on the fairground, reflect the true image of Africans and good for design, but only foreigners are interested in buying the products and not Liberians.He sells some of the products by set, and based on the varieties, prices are determined.According to him some are sold for US$20 while others are US$15 and below.In response to question why Liberians are not interested, Mr. Stone indicated that many are not just interested in what is produced by them.“We can only receive buyers when season is approaching and foreigners or Liberians living abroad come to buy, but ordinary Liberians living here are not interested in products made locally,” Stone noted.Mr. Stone and others who spoke to this paper stressed that the cultural arm of the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism (MICAT) is not proactive in fostering cultural affairs that will bring them on board to carry on exhibition as the US Embassy did.He described gesture by US Embassy to conduct the Arts and Crafts Fair as an “opportunity” that enables them to exhibit their products, and further said it helps to create awareness to prioritize locally made products.Ellen V. Zeze, a vendor and artistic designer, also said she has been in the business for a long time. She noted that it has made her to have customers who usually come to buy from her. She, however, stressed that most of her customers are foreign visitors or those living abroad, but not ordinary Liberians living here.According to Ellen, fair initiated by the US Embassy helps to showcase their products, and they were grateful to the embassy staff for helping them because cultural artifacts they sell are of less interest to Liberians.Also Osman Keita, who sells masks, said only foreigners buy from them for history making and studying, but Liberians are not interested in buying things that reflect their cultural heritage.US Embassy Charge d’AffairesGiving the background of the fair in an opening statement, Sheila Paskman, Charge d’Affaires of the US Embassy in Monrovia said the artifacts fair on May 10 was the 9th biannual fair and is one of the favorite traditions of the embassy.She also said the fair was the biggest so far since they started five years back, giving the total number of vendors showcasing their products to be 121.She said while the event may be a biggest money making event of the year as people would believe, it is also meant to get vendors display their products, promote entrepreneurship and to learn how to package their goods.In an exclusive interview, Ms Paskman said the biannual event is a start-up point for government to build on in conducting similar thing to help its citizens promote entrepreneurship.Gender and Development Minister Julia Duncan-Cassell said as they travel to other countries they see handicraft works of other people and they admire them.She said, “This is time now for Liberians to showcase their works and we are proud of the US Embassy for the biannual event and we thank the artists for doing their work which we think they will always do.”Some products displayed during the fair included handmade country garments, shirts, dress, shoes, slippers, lady bags, artifacts of various designs, preserved spice and many others. Analyses on Liberians’ attitude towards local productBesides food that Liberians are compelled to buy for consumption, they hardly give much preference to locally produced materials like handicrafts for several reasons.Among them, prices of most of these artifacts are exorbitant that the averaged Liberians cannot afford.  Prices are charged in the United States Dollar and not many can afford the dollar.  Moreover, the Liberian dollar is depreciating to the US dollar as the exchange rate stands at 90 in most places. As a result prices are skyrocketing beyond the income of an ordinary Liberians.Besides, there is a general attitude that artifacts are old fashion not in conformity with contemporary materials, and therefore many Liberians see users to be uncivilized.  Moreover, some religious people, mainly Christians see artifacts as idols and therefore do not accept them in their homes.Even though imported Jeans and other fancy clothes on the market have prices ranging from US$10 upward, many young people and adults prefer wearing these fancy clothes that expose sensual parts of the body to wearing lapper suit or dress which covers most parts of the body.As referenced to earlier, government has not been much involved in trade fair for Liberians to create awareness about their products.  In addition, Liberians are not protected under the “Liberianization Policy,” something that’s gets aliens and foreigners to have edge in the business sector and discourages Liberians to involve in entrepreneurship.The US initiated arts and crafts fair was also characterized by raffle draw.  This means that the highest buyer was offered a price apart from what he/she bought, and this created motivation for buyers to purchase more from vendors who have over the time been struggling to survive by the business.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Emotions got the better of me, says dropped Sterling

first_img“Both Joe and I have had words and figured things out and moved on,” Sterling said.“We are in a sport where emotions run high and I am man enough to admit when emotions got the better of me.“This is why we play this sport because of our love for it — me and Joe Gomez are good, we both understand it was a five to 10-second thing… it’s done, we move forward and not make this bigger than it is.“Let’s get focus on our game on Thursday,” Sterling added.The Daily Mail reported that Gomez and Sterling had to be separated by teammates on Monday after a “physical confrontation”.The pair had also clashed on the field towards the end of Sunday’s match.– ‘Families have disagreements’ –England manager Gareth Southgate moved quickly to deal with the issue — arguably one of his achievements during his time in the post has been to erase the rivalries between members from different clubs which plagued previous England squads.The likes of former star defender Rio Ferdinand have spoken about how when they used to join the England camp he and Manchester United players would stick together and find it hard to mix with Chelsea or Liverpool stars.Gareth Southgate said Raheem Sterling had been dropped for Thursday’s game with Montenegro after his altercation with Joe Gomez © AFP / Paul ELLISSouthgate said in a hastily-organised press conference on Tuesday he would rather deal with the matter publicly now than let it fester till his usual meeting with the media on the eve of matches.The 49-year-old, clearly irked by how the information had leaked out regarding the set-to, said Sterling’s emotions had run over but “it is not the same for Joe (Gomez)”.However, he emphasised a line had been drawn under the incident.“I love all of my players,” he said.“We are like a family and all families have disagreements.“The important thing is for a family to communicate and work through problems.“I don’t expect as a manager to not have to deal with issues, that’s part of the job.“Our focus is now on moving forward.”Despite being dropped for Thursday’s match Sterling took part in England squad training — as did Gomez — on Tuesday.Sterling, who according to some reports had packed his bags but changed his mind when Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson intervened and persuaded him to stay, has been one of the stars of England’s qualification campaign, scoring eight goals in six games.A draw against Montenegro at Wembley will be enough to guarantee England’s place at Euro 2020.Sterling has enjoyed a makeover in his image in the past year with less biting observations of his perceived lifestyle in the press and more positive headlines regarding his public stance against racism.Six Chelsea fans were banned — one for life — after racially abusing him during a league game last season. He also suffered abuse along with England team-mates in their Euro qualifiers against Bulgaria and Montenegro.The 24-year-old silenced the critics over having a rifle tattooed on his leg by revealing it was his pledge never to touch a gun following his father being shot dead in Jamaica in front of his own father when the star was just two.He has been hailed by London Mayor Sadiq Khan for his campaigning against racism.“I’d go as far to say he’s the best statesman we have (for fighting racism),” Khan said in September this year.0Shares0000(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Raheem Sterling and Joe Gomez appeared to have made up after their altercation as they both took part in England training ahead of Euro 2020 qualifiers © AFP / Paul ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Nov 12 – Raheem Sterling said he allowed his “emotions” to get the better of him leading to a brief altercation with Liverpool’s Joe Gomez that resulted in the Manchester City player being dropped for Thursday’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Montenegro.Sterling admitted on Instagram on Tuesday he and Gomez “had words” when they met up at the England camp the day after Liverpool’s 3-1 win over defending champions City which left the latter nine points adrift of Jurgen Klopp’s side.last_img read more

first_imgFestival Fever is set to drag Donegal out of the recession!Dozens of festivals planned for across the county over the summer months will see an influx of tourists spending money.And shops, restaurants, hotels and B&Bs are hoping it will be the spark to get the ball rolling again. Thousands of locals and visitors took advantage of a rise in temperatures at the weekend to flock along to the Seafest in Rathmullan and the Donegal Town Summer Festival.And head of tourism with Failte Ireland in Donegal, Paul McCloone, said we are already up on last year’s number.“We are already ahead of last year’s figures and that is good. But we still have a long way to go before we equal the visitor numbers of four or five years ago.“But we are on an upward spiral and it is slighty encouraging but much too early to say we are going to have a good season,” he said. It might be too early to crunch figures but there was no stopping people from enjoying themselves at Rathmullan yesterday.Thousands turned up for a weekend of old fashioned fun beside the sea combined with rescue helicopter displays, curragh racing, egg and spoon races and a tug-o-war.Among those who came ashore for the weekend was RTE star derek Davis – a well-known sea-farer.And more than 15,000 people flocked into Donegal Town over the weekend to hear such bands as Jedward, Ryan Sheridan and Aslan.This weekend sees more festival fever with the arrival of the Earagail Arts Festival at venues across the county featuring an array of talent.

Polling irregularities

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Someone remind us again, what was so bad about punch-card voting? Oh, yes, we vaguely remember grumbling after some election in 2000, something about hanging chads, Florida and the Supreme Court. But all that now seems like ancient history, whereas California’s dismal experience with electronic voting machines is ongoing. Following up on irregularities in the November special election, California’s Secretary of State’s Office has ordered one of the nation’s largest manufacturers of voting machines – Election Systems and Software – to fix serious flaws in its systems. And earlier last week, the secretary of state warned 17 counties about problems with certain Diebold Election Systems equipment. Both companies’ machines may be deemed ineligible for use in next November’s election. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake It’s a recurring story. In the spring of 2004, then-Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, citing the risk of breakdowns and tampering, briefly decertified the use of touch-screen voting equipment statewide. So far, the history of high-tech voting systems in California has been less than spectacular. And that brings us back to punch-card voting. After the Florida mess of 2004, courts and politicians were quick to denounce old-fashioned voting systems as evil, and glom on to some replacement – any replacement – as quickly as possible. But the problems of Florida were never a threat to California, where the standards for reading improperly marked ballots are far clearer. And just because something is newer doesn’t necessarily mean it’s better. Honest and accurate elections are crucial to the democratic process, and if electronic voting can improve our elections, then the state should embrace it. But for now, that remains an open question. Meanwhile, the state has spent millions ditching a reliable system in favor of a costly and problematic replacement. It’s enough to make you miss those old punch cards.last_img read more

Historic day as plaque unveiled to Donegal war hero

first_imgAn official plaque has been unveiled to commemorate the late James Duffy, VC in Letterkenny.The unveiling of the plaque, organised by the Ulster History Circle, was performed by James Duffy’s daughter, Mrs. Nellie O’Donnell.James Duffy was born at Crolly in West Donegal on 17th November 1889 to parents Peter and Kate Duffy, and as a young baby was brought to Bonagee, Letterkenny where he lived most of his life. When the Great War broke out James joined the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers in Glasgow, and it was for his heroic actions in Palestine that he was awarded the Victoria Cross.Private James Duffy Reg. No. 6/17978 with the 6th Batt. Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers (10th Division) was cited – ‛For most conspicuous bravery at Kereina Peak, Palestine on 27th December 1917, displayed whilst his company was holding a very exposed position.Private Duffy (a stretcher bearer) and another stretcher-bearer went out to bring in a seriously wounded comrade. When the stretcher-bearer was wounded, James returned again to get another man. Both men went forward into the line of fire and the relief stretcher bearer was killed.Private Duffy then went forward alone, and under heavy fire, succeeded in getting both wounded men under cover and attended to their injuries. His gallantry undoubtedly saved both men’s lives, and throughout he showed an utter disregard of danger under heavy fire.’ He was 28 years of age. His citation appeared in the London Gazette 4th supplement on 27th February 1918. He died on 7th April 1969 at Drumany and is buried in the Conwal Cemetery, Letterkenny, and his VC is in the collection of the Inniskilling Museum at Enniskillen Castle, Co. Fermanagh.Chris Spurr, Chairman of the Ulster History Circle comments, ‛James Duffy made a long journey from his birthplace among the hills of west Donegal to the mountains of Palestine, and it was there that his valour brought him lasting honour. One hundred years after Private Duffy won the Victoria Cross, the Ulster History Circle is delighted to commemorate this heroic soldier with a blue plaque in Letterkenny.The Circle thanked the Ulster-Scots Agency for their financial support towards the plaque, and Donegal County Museum for their assistance.’All pictures by kind permission of Brian McDaid.Historic day as plaque unveiled to Donegal war hero was last modified: November 14th, 2017 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:james duffyletterkennyplaquelast_img read more

South Africa resumes seafood exports to Russia

first_img12 November 2014South African will begin seafood exports to Russia after the Eurasian country granted twelve seafood companies licences to supply canned and frozen fish.This is the first since the late 1990s that South African fish will be exported to Russia on a commercial basis, said Felix Ratheb, chief executive of Cape Town-based Sea Harvest, one of the South African companies granted a licence.The other 11 companies granted rights to supply seafood are Abagold Ltd, Compass Challenger, GSA Trades Pty Ltd, Harvest Atlantic Peace, Irvin & Johnson Limited, Kaytrad Coldstore, LAVERNE, Marine Products, Pioneer Fishing Pty Ltd, Sea Vuna Fishing Company Pty Ltd and Viking Fishing Co Pty Ltd.Speaking to Reuters, Ratheb said Sea Harvest’s first exports to Russia were expected in early 2015 and would begin at about 500 tonnes a year, worth between R25-million to R40-million. South Africa’s total fish exports in 2012 were valued at R3.5-billion but this figure could increase if Russia becomes a major importer, according to Ratheb.According to the Russian Embassy website the legal platform for the Russian-South African relations in trade and economy was launched in 1993 with the Agreement on Trade and Economic Cooperation.Other key treaties include the Agreement on Cooperation in Mining (1999), Agreement on Double Taxation Avoidance (2000) and Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (2000).South Africa is a leading Russian foreign trade partner in sub-Saharan Africa, according to the Russian Embassy. Bilateral trade in the January to November 2013 period increased by 22.1% to US$998-million, compared to US$817-million from January to November 2012.Russia’s exports increased by 59.1% to US$260.5-million, from US$163.7-million in January to November 2012, and imports grew by 12.9% to US$737.5-million. Mutual investments between the two countries are also massive. Russian investments in South Africa reached over US$1-billion in the last year.Major Russian exports to South Africa comprise chemical and agro-industrial products, precious and base metals, coking coal, fertilisers, machinery, equipment, vehicles, tools, textiles, footwear and mineral products. On the other hand, South African exports to Russia are dominated by fruits, mineral products, machinery, equipment, vehicles, chemical products, precious and base metals, raw hides, textiles and footwear.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

U.P. to get its first conservation centre for vultures

first_imgUttar Pradesh is set to get its first conservation centre for endangered vultures. And a gau sadan (cow conservation centre) built by the State government may have led to the selection of the village site for the vulture conservation in Eastern Uttar Pradesh’s Maharajganj district, as per an official.The Jatayu Conservation and Breeding Centre would be set up in the Bhari Baisi village in Pharendra tehsil under the Gorakhpur Forest Division. Covering an area of five hectares, the centre would be developed on the lines of the Pinjore Conservation and Breeding Centre in Haryana, the nation’s first for vultures, the Uttar Pradesh Information department said in a statement.Uttar Pradesh Principal Forest Conservator (Wildlife) Sunil Pandey said more than 100 vultures were spotted in the Maghwalia range of the Maharajganj Forest Division in August.A committee of vultures was also spotted close to a gau sadan built by the State government, said Mr. Pandey in a statement.Since destitute animals are kept at the gau sadan and they die soon due to their age, it is natural for vultures to be spotted there due to the availability of the dead animals, said Mr. Pandey. “Due to this, Bhari Baisi village was selected [for the conservation centre],” Mr. Pandey said.Joint projectThe vulture conservation centre in Maharajganj would be a joint project of the Bombay Natural History Society and the Wildlife Research Institute. The BNHS has prepared a Detailed Project Report for the centre.Around 60% of the survey work was complete, Mr. Pandey said.As per the 2013-14 census, around 900 vultures were found in 13 districts of Uttar Pradesh, he said.last_img read more

Matthew Wade the foghorn is finally silenced by England’s Jofra Archer

first_img David Warner hammered to new low thanks to Broad mind games Twitter Most simply walk past stony-faced. David Warner has taken to cheering back at the boos, both arms raised. Peter Siddle could be seen on Saturday waving and smiling happily at one extended heckle. Nathan Lyon, short of his best humour all Test, kept his response last night to one decisive expletive.Something was always likely to give. It was always likely to be something involving Wade, a gnarled, travelled, well-seasoned 5ft 7in pocket tug-ship Australian cricketer, and a foghorn in any team; the kind of sportsman who feels it is a part of his value to bark and carp and uphold general standards of on-field yap.A few years back, Wade caused a stir by turning on Ravindra Jadeja, informing him he was “useless” during a series where Jadeja became the world’s No 1 ranked bowler. He was described as “embarrassing” by Kepler Wessels after his relentless drone during the 2016 series in South Africa, and became a kind of in-house fire-starter when he got a game in that abrasive, gritty Australia vintage of Lehmann-Smith-Warner.Here Wade’s moment arrived with England on 248 for seven in the morning session and Jofra Archer at the wicket in place of Ben Stokes. Josh Hazlewood was bowling. Archer had barely faced a ball. Wade was at short leg.“Hit him on the helmet!” came the cry, which is, to be fair, some tactically sound advice. There was more of the same; followed, a little oddly, by some gabble about how Jofra might want to change Big Bash teams and leave Hobart, where Archer and Wade are teammates as it happens. … we have a small favour to ask.

Support The Guardian Share via Email Pinterest Australia sport Share on Facebook Trevor Bayliss left hoping for another Stokes-like hero to save Ashes Analysing a short leg’s stump-mic waffle is among life’s more futile occupations. Nobody but Wade can say what, if anything, he meant by that. Perhaps it is a bit oversensitive to assume this was a “loyalty” sledge, a reference to the fact Archer has chosen to play for England rather than the West Indies.But it is to be hoped not. A pair of Australians have already been ejected from Old Trafford for shouting at Archer about passports. This is not really a laughing matter, or indeed a suitable topic in this country for sport-bantz. On Saturday Archer spoke in an interview in The Times about a passer-by in a supermarket ranting at him about immigrants and thieves. These are complex and sensitive issues. Stick to hit him on the grille, Wadey.Archer was dismissed limply a few balls later. However, he was energised when Australia batted, and when Wade appeared at the wicket in the middle of a sustained high-grade spell from England’s new-ball bowlers. Since you’re here… features Cricket Matthew Wade hits out during his innings of 34 as Australia declared on 186 for six and set England an improbable 383 for victory. Photograph: Jason Cairnduff/Action Images via Reuters Read more England cricket teamcenter_img Read more Facebook Topics The Ashes Sportblog Share on LinkedIn Matthew Wade enjoys a chat. As talk-show formats go this one probably wouldn’t make it past the proposal stage, even in the city of Partridge, Granada TV and feisty men of all ages with a liking for the sound of their own badinage.Not that this is likely to discourage Wade, who on the fourth day of this fourth Ashes Test helped dish up the most abrasive moment to date of a series that has up to now been peppy without slipping over the line into boorishness.It was probably coming. There has been something in the air at Old Trafford. Tours tend to drag on. Players get tired or grow irritated by the friction, the feeling of being assailed on all sides. Every day of this Test match a small crowd has gathered at the back of the pavilion to barrack Australia’s players as they come down the steps at the start of a session. Ashes 2019 Share on Twitter Reuse this content Archer had just taken out Travis Head’s leg stump with a 91mph nip-backer. As Wade marched out he dried his hands in the dust. Wade flexed and bent and sprang up, all gladiatorial intent. Archer’s first ball was blocked. The second one was a throat tickler that sent Wade somersaulting out of its path.And, for the next 10 minutes, it was teeth and toes, as Lockie Ferguson calls it: Archer aiming for both ends of the Wade physique, offering a word here and there, and cranking his speeds up to 94mph at times. To his credit, Wade never took a backward step. Although there was one very funny moment as he turned to take a second run, having brushed past the bowler on the first, only to find Archer standing square in his path glowering down. Wade made the required calculations, turned on his heel and scurried back.What to make of all this? Nobody was harmed in the creation of this on-field banter. Wade might want to watch the loyalty stuff, if indeed that’s what it was, when he’s talking to a mixed-heritage black Briton. Archer, for his part, has annoyed the Australians with his own loose chat between games.But it did get him going. Perhaps it helped Archer to forget himself a little, to get lost in the contest. Lest we forget, this is a cricketer who has played 30 first-class games, who is learning about every part of these contests of fine margins.He did get Wade in the end, drawing an edge to the keeper and running past with nothing more than a look as Wade marched off. By that stage Steve Smith had spun his strange, luminous brilliance around Old Trafford long enough to push the game, and most likely the series, beyond England’s reach.With any luck, Archer v Wade will fade into the background, an oddity in the middle of a largely good-natured contest. However, it was at best an encouraging riposte from a cricketer whose career is likely to revolve around managing his own tension, raising his levels at the right moment, blocking out the background hum; and in giving the right answer in his own way, as he did here on a day of rising drama all round.

India defeated West Indies by 59 runs (DLS method), thus taking an unassailable 1-0 lead in the three-match rubber, the final of which will be played on Wednesday at the same venue. On Sunday, Kohli brought up his 42nd century during the course of which he went past former India skipper Sourav Ganguly tally of 11,363 runs in the list of leading run-getters in ODI cricket. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh The 30-year-old has scored 11,406 runs at 59.91 in 238 matches and is currently at the eighth spot in the list topped by legendary Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar who compiled 18,426 runs in 463 matches. Soon after Kohli broke his record, Ganguly tweeted: “Virat Kohli another master class in one day cricket…what a player.” During the course of his 120-run knock, the Delhi lad also became the first batsman to complete 2,000 ODI runs against West Indies. The previous record was 1,930 by Javed Miandad, whom Kohli passed in his 34th inning against the Windies. The Indian skipper now has eight centuries to his name against West Indies. He also has eight tons against two other teams — Australia and Sri Lanka. Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for scoring maximum hundreds against a single opposition — 9 against Australia. He had also scored eight hundreds against Sri Lanka. No other batsmen have more than seven centuries against a single opposition.last_img read more

The Thursday news briefing An ataglance survey of some top stories

first_imgHighlights from the news file for Thursday, Oct. 26———POTENTIAL CYBER ATTACKS WORRY CENTRAL BANK GOVERNOR: Bank of Canada Governor Stephen Poloz says the threat of a cyberattack is perhaps the scenario that troubles him the most. Poloz told The Canadian Press on Thursday that the financial system will get through economic turbulence. But he said he is unsure what the fallout would be if there was a cyberattack against the financial system. The central bank warned Canadians in June that the country’s banks are vulnerable to a cascading series of cyberattacks.———FEW SEX ASSAULTS RESULT IN CONVICTION: Statistics Canada says only about 12 per cent of sexual assaults reported to police led to a conviction. The agency looked at sexual assault figures between 2009 and 2014. StatsCan says the figures only cover the complaints that police validated and don’t include complaints deemed unfounded.———PARENTS ASKING DOCTORS ABOUT MEDICALLY ASSISTED DEATH FOR TERMINALLY ILL CHILDREN: A survey by the Canadian Paediatric Society says parents are increasingly asking their doctors about the option of seeking medically assisted death for children who have progressive terminal illness or intractable pain. Federal legislation brought in last year allowed eligible adults the right to seek out assisted death in cases of incurable illness or intolerable suffering, but the situation regarding minors is still being reviewed. Dr. Dawn Davies of the pediatric society says the findings show the medical community should start thinking about issues involving assisted death for minors.———MILLIONS OF COMPENSATION GIVEN TO TORTURE VICTIMS: Over $31 million in federal compensation has been paid to three Canadians who were tortured in Syria. The Trudeau government announced this spring that it had settled long-standing lawsuits filed by Abdullah Almalki, Ahmad El Maati and Muayyed Nureddin over the federal role in their ordeals. Recently released federal documents note a $31.25-million payment to three unidentified individuals and The Canadian Press has confirmed it refers to the settlement. An inquiry concluded that Canadian officials contributed to the torture of Almalki, El Maati and Nureddin by sharing information with foreign agencies.———MORNEAU TO DONATE SOME SHARE EARNINGS TO CHARITY: Finance Minister Bill Morneau says he won’t keep any money he makes as a result of any increase in the value of shares in his family business since he was elected two years ago. Morneau said on Thursday that he’ll give the money to charity. Morneau plans to sell all of his roughly one million shares in Morneau Shepell, which are worth an estimated $21 million, and put all his other considerable assets into a blind trust. Morneau has been under fire in Parliament for failing to divest his shares earlier because the opposition contends he is in a conflict of interest.———NEW SCREENING IN EFFECT FOR CANADIANS TRAVELLING INTO THE U.S.: New security guidelines are in effect for Canadian travellers flying into the U.S., but the airlines are saying little about what the procedures involve. The U.S. government said earlier this year that there would be increased screening of passengers and their cellphones and other electronic devices. There would also be more security around planes and in passenger areas. Air Canada says all of its flights to the U.S. go through preclearance in Canadian airports so passengers will encounter the new screening before leaving Canada.———IRVING ORDERED TO PAY IN LAC MEGANTIC DISASTER: Irving Oil has been ordered to pay $4 million after pleading guilty to 34 counts stemming from the 2013 rail disaster in Lac Megantic, Que., that killed 47 people. Irving pleaded guilty to a number of charges under the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act. Transport Canada and the RCMP said Irving had not complied with all applicable safety requirements by not classifying the crude oil being carried by trains as a dangerous good. A government statement said Irving did not adequately train its employees in the transportation of dangerous goods.———U.S. DECLARES OPIOID CRISIS A NATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY: The acting American health and human services secretary has officially declared the opioid crisis a nationwide public health emergency, as requested by President Donald Trump. Eric D. Hargan says in a statement that Trump “has made this national crisis a top priority since he took office in January.”———HALIFAX POLITICIAN SAYS THE WORD MARIJUANA IS RACIST: A Halifax city councillor says he won’t use the word marijuana because it’s racist. Shawn Cleary says in the early 1900s during the criminalization of cannabis in the U.S., “marijuana” was used to demonize marginalized communities, namely Mexicans. Cleary says he’s decided to stop using the word. His tweets prompted intense debate on social media with some people thanking Cleary for informing them and others questioning the validity of his comments.———GREY CUP SOLD OUT: It might be hard to come by a ticket to the Grey Cup. The CFL championship is sold out despite the fact the game is a month away. Capacity at Ottawa’s TD Place will be increased from 24,000 to 36,000, with the addition of temporary stands in both end zones, to meet the increased demand.———last_img read more

43754 Moroccans Received US Green Card Between 20052014

By Bryn MillerRabat – According to the Department of Homeland Security’s records, 43,754 Moroccans received green cards between 2005 and 2014. Green cards are identification documents issued by the Department of State that grant its holder lawful permanent residency.The government reported that an average of 4,375 Moroccans obtained a green card each year through various classes of admission, including family-sponsored preferences, employment-based preferences, and the State Department’s diversity lottery. Green card issuance for Moroccans reached its peak in 2010, when 5,447 immigrants received a card. In context, during this ten-year period the United States issued green cards to 1,172,380 immigrants from predominately Muslim countries, 1,051,249 Europeans, and 10,822,112 total immigrants,Morocco ranked ninth out of the world’s predominately Muslim countries for the number of nationals receiving lawful permanent resident status. Bangladesh came first with 139,584 recipients, followed by Iran and Iraq with 137,097 and 119,146 cards respectively.Egypt, Somalia, Albania, Uzbekistan, and Turkey also ranked higher than Morocco. However, Moroccans far outstripped their neighbors in the Maghreb region, receiving almost 40,000 more green cards on average than Algerians, Mauritanians, Tunisians, and Libyans. Saudi Arabia, another American ally, received only 13,696 green cards for its citizens. read more

First Nation chiefs look to block New Brunswicks new forestry strategy

FREDERICTON – Aboriginal leaders in New Brunswick are taking the provincial government to court in an effort to block an increase on the caps for harvesting softwood lumber in a new 10-year forestry strategy.The Assembly of First Nations Chiefs in New Brunswick filed for an injunction in the Court of Queen’s Bench on Wednesday, arguing the new strategy will cause irreversible environmental harm.“This is not just a First Nations issue, this is an issue that will impact everyone in this province,” said the assembly’s Maliseet co-chair, Chief Brenda Perley, in a statement.“Increasing the annual allotment for harvesting softwood lumber will further endanger culturally significant species like deer and salmon, among other plant and animal life that aboriginal and non-aboriginal conservationists, recreational and commercial fishers and hunters and anyone who takes pride in the natural beauty of New Brunswick enjoy and depend upon.”A spokesman for the Natural Resources Department wasn’t available for comment.The province announced in March it was raising its softwood lumber caps, allowing the forestry industry to harvest 660,000 more cubic metres of wood per year. The change amounted to a more than 20-per-cent increase from existing levels.Natural Resources Minister Paul Robichaud said at the time the move would make the industry more competitive and create hundreds of new jobs in the province.The increase in the province’s new forestry strategy brought the total allowable amounts to about 3.9 million cubic metres of spruce and fir, Robichaud said in March.One day after the announcement, Irving Pulp and Paper said it planned to spend about $450 million to modernize a pulp mill in Saint John.Native leaders oppose the change, accusing the government of failing to adequately address aboriginal concerns or properly consulting with them.The Assembly of First Nations’ Chiefs in New Brunswick says it is bringing forward the legal action on behalf of itself and 10 First Nation communities, with more aboriginal groups expected to join.They are asking that the court put the forestry strategy on hold until their concerns are addressed. by The Canadian Press Posted Aug 15, 2014 12:27 pm MDT First Nation chiefs look to block New Brunswick’s new forestry strategy AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Cincinnati Bengals prepare for opener against Chicago Bears

The Cincinnati Bengals head to Chicago for their first game of the 2013 season, looking to improve on a 2012 season where they lost in the AFC Wild Card to the Houston Texans.After missing the playoffs last season, the Bears are a team that has undergone some major changes. Former coach Lovie Smith was fired despite leading his team to a 10-6 record last year and establishing one of the best defensive units in football over the course of his nine-year tenure. Also gone is linebacker Brian Urlacher, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and the player most associated with Chicago’s defensive style of play.While the Bears may take a step back defensively, their offense has some room for improvement after finishing 28th overall last season. New coach Mark Trestman, known as a quarterback guru, is expected to help quarterback Jay Cutler reach his potential.Meanwhile, the Bears have strived to improve their offensive line, giving a unit that surrendered 44 sacks a much-needed facelift. Left tackle J’Marcus Webb has moved on to play for the Minnesota Vikings, and Jermon Bushrod was signed to take his place. Also, Matt Slauson was brought over from the New York Jets to help at left guard while Chicago used its first-round pick on guard Kyle Long. The Bears can only hope that these moves will make an immediate impact with the Bengals coming to town. Cincinnati features a fearsome defensive line that accounted for a franchise-record 51 sacks last season and could very well improve on that total this season.Against the Bengals, Trestman may implement a game plan designed to put less pressure on his quarterback, as the offensive line, despite offseason moves, most likely still needs time to jell. By establishing running back Matt Forte and getting the ball out of Cutler’s hands as quickly as possible on passing downs, Chicago should be able to avoid costly turnovers or an injury to their quarterback. While the Bengals may have the advantage up front, Cincinnati’s secondary may have its hands full with Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Last year, Marshall was reunited with Cutler, his former teammate on the Denver Broncos, by means of a trade that turned out to be a smashing success as Marshall had a career year (118 catches, 1,508 yards, 11 touchdowns). The two have unrivaled chemistry, both having had their best seasons playing together.On the other side of the ball, the Bengals’ offense will feature some new faces. Cincinnati fans are eager to see what rookie running back Giovani Bernard can contribute. His explosive style of running should be able to help quarterback Andy Dalton on third downs in a road game that is bound to be physical. Perhaps rookie tight end Tyler Eifert will also get significant playing time, allowing the Bengals to attack the middle of the field with two tight end formations in an effort to minimize mistakes and provide added protection in the passing game. While ideally Dalton prefers to look to superstar wide receiver A.J. Green as his first option, he may not have the opportunity as often as he would like on Sunday. For the first time in his career, Green will be lined up against All-Pro cornerback Charles Tillman, who has had great success against elite receivers such as Calvin Johnson of the Detroit Lions. Green was also only recently allowed to return to practice after having suffered a bruised knee in practice, though that does not seem to be much of a concern anymore.On paper, Cincinnati is the more talented team. It is their youth and disappointing showings in big games that are the primary concerns. In last year’s opener, the Bengals lost big in Baltimore, 44-13. But they are more than capable of starting 2013 in a much more positive fashion. If the Bengals can create turnovers and contain Forte and Marshall, Cincinnati’s offense, stacked with a plethora of weapons, should eventually overwhelm a Bears team that has seen much upheaval since the end of last season. read more

OSUs Lavender named to AP Preseason AllAmerican Team

Jantel Lavender has received numerous accolades throughout her career at Ohio State. The senior center can now add 2010-11 Associated Press Preseason All-American to her resume. The three-time reigning Big Ten Player of the Year was also named to the AP’s Preseason All-American team last season and went on to average 21.4 points and 10.3 for the Buckeyes. Lavender said she spent her summer improving her game to earn higher honors at the end of the season. “The goal is to be a national player of the year,” Lavender said. “I really improved my game over this last summer because I’ve gotten a chance to be here for the whole summer. I’m looking forward to being a much better player in every aspect, mentally, physically, and a good teammate.” A 65-member national media panel selected the team. Joining Lavender on this season’s team is Connecticut’s Maya Moore, Baylor’s Brittney Griner, Stanford’s Nnemkadi Ogwumike and Oklahoma’s Danielle Robinson. Being selected to the team is the latest preseason honor for the Cleveland native. Lavender was also named to the watch list for the Wooden Award, given to the nation’s top player, besides being named the preseason Big Ten Player of the Year. Lavender is also on pace to break Katie Smith’s OSU women’s career scoring record of 2,578 points. Lavender has scored 2,044 points in her career and averaged 20 points per game. OSU coach Jim Foster said team success — not individual honors — would define Lavender’s career as a Buckeye. “Preseason stuff’s nice, its great for setting expectations,” Foster said. “I think Jantel’s career will be measured by championships more so than points scored.” Lavender said one honor in particular would mean more to her than any other this season. “I’m not really an individualistically (sic) type of person, I’m more team-based,” Lavender said. “I don’t think that we’ve gotten to the place that I want to be, you know, as a far as a team. “I want a national championship. I think that we’ve said that every year and, you know, it’s easily said and not easily done.” read more

Sweet natured dog helps students ward off anxiety

first_imgShe is good natured, friendly and simply loves to play, which makes her the perfect candidate to help students at one British university remain calm and relaxed in the face of mounting stress.Tanlaw Millie, an 11-year-old Cockapoo, is being used by the University of Buckingham in an effort to ward off anxiety and depression, conditions that are increasingly afflicting teenage girls and young women in particular.The dog was bought by the university after research found that stroking pets can help to alleviate stress. Studies from the Department of Education have shown a rise in the number of teenage girls, suffering from anxiety and depression.Tanlaw Millie – named after the University’s Student Union building, Tanlaw Mill – has certainly gone down well with this year’s new undergraduates.Sean Ruane, 26, a business enterprise student at the university, said: “I’ve suffered from depression a couple of times. Depression is sometimes knows as the black dog but it feels more like a black wolf. For me being able to pet Tanlaw Millie lifts my spirits.“Dogs have unconditional love and that’s something you don’t find in all humans – it’s priceless.”Studies have found that playing with or petting an animal can increase levels of the stress-reducing hormone oxytocin and decrease production of the stress hormone cortisol.Sir Anthony Seldon,  University of Buckingham Vice-Chancellor, who has written books on mental health and well-being, said: “I think all universities should invest in a campus canine.

Surgery success for Bangladeshi girl with three legs

(BBC) A Bangladeshi toddler born with a third leg attached to her pelvis is returning home after successful surgery in Australia.Choity Khatun, who is three, was born with caudal twinning, meaning that part of a twin had developed in her pelvis.Choity, seen here with her mother Shima, can now run around, her doctor says (AFP photo)Australian surgeons spent months working out how to remove the extra limb and reconstruct her pelvic area.The toddler was brought to Australia from her village in Bangladesh by a charity, Children First Foundation.Dr Chris Kimber, head of surgery at Monash Children’s Hospital in Victoria, said Choity’s case was very rare and the surgery had been “daunting”.“The operation is sort of determined by the individual and you have to spend a lot of time trying to analyse what’s there and then plan a procedure that takes that into account,” he told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.The Australian team held extensive discussions with doctors in Bangladesh, who had already performed some surgery.The team had to determine whether further surgery was even possible or beneficial before she was brought to Australia last year.Doctors in Bangladesh had removed part of the leg “but she was still left with a large mass sitting there in her pelvis between her two normal legs”, Dr Kimber said.“Because there’s part of a twin in there, she had two rectums, two vaginas, potentially two anuses – double bits that were growing into a very abnormal area.”After a lengthy planning process, the team embarked on the surgery in November.They removed the part of the leg that was left behind and carried out reconstruction work to ensure the little girl was continent – something that will help her to function much better back at home.Dr Kimber said the toddler, who is partially blind, was now walking and running around, and had put on weight.He said she might need further corrective surgery during her teenage years but would be able to return home to Bangladesh with her mother “without medication or surgical aids”.Her mother, Shima Khatun, told Australian media on Thursday she was looking forward to going home to her family and watching her daughter play.“Everything is good now… she can play like other babies… she is the same [as them],” she said.

EURO 2016 Best 7 young lions to watch in Poland

The upcoming Men’s EHF EURO 2016 in Poland will be the chance for all handball fans to see some new faces in European handball. Some of them are already known from their performance in the clubs and national teams, but still they are Under 23, ready to improve and conquere handball world in years to come.Handball-Planet.com made a list of BEST 7 youngstars (generation 1994 and younger) for the upcoming event which we would like to see. The leader of the team is Handball-Planet Young World Player 2015 – Sanders Sagosen.RIGHT BACK: Fabian Wiede (Germany)PLAYMAKER: Sanders Sagosen (Norway)LEFT BACK: Vuko Borozan (Montenegro)LINE-PLAYER: Blaž Blagotinšek (Slovenia)LEFT WING: Rune Dahmke (Germany)RIGHT WING: Darko Đukić (Serbia)GOALKEEPER: Torbjorn Bergerud (Norway)Our list didn’t include some names who will miss the tournament (Lasse Andersson or Paul Drux). However, like in the list of BEST 7 “old guns”, we couldn’t find the left wing player (1994 and younger) who will be close to the final squad, so we decided to put Rune Dahmke (1993). On the other side, the lack of young goalies is more than visible, so our choice is young Norwegian Torbjorn Bergerud, who probably won’t get a chance to play in poland. ← Previous Story EURO 2016: Best 7 “old guns” all over Poland Next Story → Tobbias Karlsson prepares special “rainbow” message for Poland best young handball playersEHF EURO 2016 read more

TMobile looking to supercharge their 3G network to be as fast as

first_imgAlthough we’re certainly not going to look at any increase in mobile broadband speeds as a negative, one thing to remember is that, technically, even the likes of Verizon‘s LTE service and Sprint’s WiMax aren’t really 4G.For want of a better term, their speeds only equate to 3G+. That means if you’re a company like T-Mobile without a real 4G rollout plan going into 2011, one way to catch up to the competition is not by building new 4G towers, but by supercharging the existing network to the utmost limits of existing 3G throughput. And, in fact, that’s exactly what T-Mobile has up their sleeves: they’re currently working on charging their current 3G HSPA standard to make it as fast as 4G, reaching speeds of 650Mbps.AdChoices广告How’s T-Mobile doing it? They’re teaming up with Nokia Siemens to develop a new 3G antenna array that is similar to the MIMo tech used in WiFi routers. By having a single device picking up and broadcasting multiple frequencies on multiple antennas, they can fuse those different signals picking up different bandwidth pipes together for even faster throughput.A pretty bold plan, indeed. Of course, if it works with 3G, it should work with 4G too. How fast could Verizon’s LTE network get if they tried the same multiple antenna approach?Read more at Ars Technica, via Gizmodolast_img read more

Neuer return leaves Sule impressed

first_imgNiklas Sule has been left amazed by Manuel Neuer’s impressive comeback from injury after the goalkeeper played a competitive training match for GermanyThe Bayern Munich captain sustained a broken foot in September last year, which left him out of action for their entire campaign with Sven Ulreich having occupied his place in the squad since as they won a sixth successive Bundesliga title.However, Germany boss Joachim Low included Neuer in his preliminary squad for next month’s tournament in Russia with the aim of properly assessing the 32-year-old’s fitness levels before making a final decision.Neuer continued with his progress from injury by playing in a test match for the Germany u20 side against the senior side and completed 30 minutes.The captain now looks set to be confirmed in Low’s final 23-man squad and Sule could not hide his admiration for him, who he calls the “best keeper in the world”.“At first I couldn’t believe it, when Manu did his first training after four months out and sensationally saved one ball after the other. It was as if he had never left,” said the defender, according to Goal.“I hadn’t witnessed something like that before. His body language is simply incredible.Top 5 Bundesliga players to watch during the weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Bundesliga’s Top 5 players to watch next weekend.The German…“He is the best keeper in the world, and for me, it is great to play with him at the Bayern and cause him problems by shooting my swirling shots on goal.”A fit Neuer is normally the undisputed number one at Germany and assistant coach Thomas Schneider backed him to be ready to start if required.“The coaches Jogi [Low, head coach] and Andi [Kopke, goalkeeping coach] talked to Marc-Andre, who had a very good season and is an important part of the team since the Confederations Cup last year and who got even better this year,” he said.“But Manu is a complete goalkeeper. His name, the way he moves, his presence on the pitch and his technical skills. He has been named the world’s best goalkeeper for a reason.“Of course it is no easy situation for Marc now, but when you have such an unbelievably good goalkeeper in your team like Manuel, you want him to play.”Neuer is expected to play in his first proper competitive match against Austria on Saturday in a friendly.last_img read more

Lunar rock samples reveal variations in water concentrations

first_img Citation: Lunar rock samples reveal variations in water concentrations (2014, May 26) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-05-lunar-samples-reveal-variations.html (Phys.org) —A team of researchers studying rocks returned from the moon by Apollo 17 astronauts has found that rocks found in different locations have different amounts of water in them. In their paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience, the team describes their findings and offer possible explanations for the concentration differences. Secondary electron image of pits left by ion microprobe analyses of a heterogeneous apatite grain in Apollo sample 14321, 1047. Water has now been detected in apatite in many different lunar rock types. Credit: K.L. Robinson, HIGP. Optical micrograph of pyroclastic glass beads in Apollo sample 74220, 383, the famous “orange soil”. Water was first detected by Saal et al., 2008 in glass beads similar to these. Credit: G.J. Taylor, HIGP More information: Heterogeneous distribution of water in the Moon, Nature Geoscience (2014) DOI: 10.1038/ngeo2173AbstractInitial analyses of lunar samples returned by the Apollo missions indicated that the Moon was essentially devoid of water. However, improved analytical techniques have revealed that pyroclastic glass beads in Apollo samples contain measurable amounts of water. Taking into account volatile loss during eruption of the glass beads onto the surface, the pre-eruption magma could have contained water on the order of 100 ppm by weight, concentrations that are similar to the mantle sources of mid-ocean ridge basalts on Earth. Lava flows from vast basaltic plains—the lunar maria—also contain appreciable amounts of water, as shown by analyses of apatite in mare basalt samples. In contrast, apatite in most non-mare rocks contains much less water than the mare basalts and glass beads. The hydrogen isotopic composition of lunar samples is relatively similar to that of the Earth’s interior, but the deuterium to hydrogen ratios obtained from lunar samples seem to have a larger range than found in Earth’s mantle. Thus, measurements of water concentration and hydrogen isotopic composition suggest that water is heterogeneously distributed in the Moon and varies in isotopic composition. The variability in the Moon’s water may reflect heterogeneity in accretion processes, redistribution during differentiation or later additions by volatile-rich impactors. Explore further © 2014 Phys.org Digging deep in search of water on the moon Journal information: Nature Geoscience It was just six years ago that scientists learned that there was water on the moon, prior to that, conventional wisdom suggested the moon was not only barren, but completely dry. That discovery led to more research which revealed that not only is there water on the moon, but it’s actually widespread—sealed inside of rocks, but present nonetheless. In this new effort, the research team reports that in studying the findings of several other teams analyzing the rocks since water was first found in them, they’ve discovered that some of the rocks have more water sealed inside of them than others—the difference appears to be related to where on the moon the rocks were found. This suggests, the team reports, that some parts of the moon are wetter than others. The new research team also found that the chemical composition of the water was different depending on the rock source as well.The findings have led the researchers to consider how differing water concentrations relate to theories regarding the origin of the moon. Most scientists believe the moon came to exist approximately four and half billion years ago when a collision occurred between Earth and another planet. The general consensus is that some of the moon came from Earth, some from the other planet and the rest from other bodies such as comets and asteroids that subsequently struck the moon. Water on the moon could therefore have come from the Earth, the other planet or comets. Intriguingly, the researchers have found that the chemical makeup of water samples in some of the rocks (volcanic glass) is similar to magma samples that once resided in Earth’s mantle. Others, on the other hand, were found to be much drier. The researchers conclude that the formation of the moon appears to have been a far more complex series of events than theories have suggested.
