first_imgnot for featured Mike Ross was injured in the first scrumLet’s go for the obvious one and start with the scrum. Ireland hadn’t lost a scrum in the Championship until their visit to Twickenham where they lost three and only won the same amount. England on the other hand won 11 and lost 1. It is easy to blame the injury to Mike Ross and point the finger at Tom Court but a scrum is not built on one man alone. How did Ireland not generate more force through the second rows? Why didn’t the flanker engage and aid the prop more? The line-out which cost them so dear against Wales and France was a success but an international side cannot win if they can’t generate quality first phase ball on a regular basis. Add to this the high number of handling errors and knock-ons and it tells an uncomfortable story.These are questions that Kidney will have to look at himself to find the answers. Graham Rowntree (the only member of the England coaching squad to come out of the 2011 World Cup with any credit) highlighted the need of quality coaching in that area. It is unacceptable at international level for the set piece to be so controlled by one side. England scored two tries, both from set piece penalties. Paul O’Connell was sorely missed up front as he would have taken ownership and dealt with the issues but it seemed that Ireland became rudderless in the second half and just allowed the scrum to disintegrate before their very eyes.Throughout the tournament, discipline has been an issue for Ireland and in wet and tricky conditions at Twickenham this took on greater significance. Ireland conceded 12 penalties, double the amount of the English, which away from home against a good kicker makes it very difficult to win. By the time you add on 11 missed tackles to England’s six, it underlines that this was just a terrible day for Kidney’s men. Ireland’s scrum was dominated at TwickenhamBy Claire Glancy What a shocker! This generation of Ireland players and fans have got so used to beating England in the last decade that with this year’s match rounding off the tournament on St Patrick’s Day, the script for another Irish victory seemed to be written.Not so.After an error-ridden first half, with both sides relying on the kickers to rack up points, Ireland were still in the hunt. England took a three point lead into the break but the perception was they were having to work much harder than their opponents and if Ireland were to step up a gear then again this game would be theirs. But if there was a gear change at all, the men in green went into reverse and Ireland suffered another attack of second-half phobia (an all too familiar trait in this Championship) and produced what was arguably their worst performance under Declan Kidney.Throughout the Six Nations the two major worries for Ireland have been their set piece and discipline. Since the opening the defeat to Wales, defence has been their strength. But on Saturday, all three areas were the fundamental the reasons behind the 30 – 9 defeat. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Kearney has performed well for IrelandThe loss will hurt all involved but it will be interesting to see how the players and staff react. There have been a few positives throughout the Six Nations, particularly the performances of Stephen Ferris and Rob Kearney. As everyone knows, the talent is there, so Ireland do not need to panic but they do need to take action.  Their set piece has to improve if they are ever going to win major tournaments and they have to sort out the midfield… In truth Gordon D’Arcy looks a shadow of the great player he once was and while Brian O’Driscoll should be back in time for the summer tour to New Zealand, a plan needs to be formulated for the post-BOD era. Only two wins from five was not the Championship Ireland were expecting. Yes, a number of the players can turn their attention to the Heineken Cup quarter-finals but right now that’s little consolation.Follow Claire Glancy on Twitter @claireglancylast_img read more

first_img Christopher Ruhm says: The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Pittsburgh, PA Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams during a July 2011 conference at Lambeth Palace. Photo/Marcin Mazur from the archbishop’s official website[Church Times] The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, has begun a campaign to persuade General Synod members to back the new women bishops legislation when it returns to debate it next month.The following article by Williams was published in the Church Times on Friday, Oct. 19.No-one is likely to underrate the significance of November’s debate on women bishops in General Synod. It will shape the character of the Church of England for generations – and I’m not talking only about the decision we shall take, but about the way in which we discuss it and deal with the outcome of it.Those who, like myself, long to see a positive vote will want this for a range of reasons which have to do with both the essential health of the Church and its credibility in our society. They are keenly aware of living with a degree of theological inconsistency.As Anglicans we believe that there is one priesthood and one only in the Church, and that is the priesthood of Jesus Christ – his eternal offering of himself, crucified, risen and ascended, to the Father to secure everlasting ‘covenanted’ peace between heaven and earth. To live as ‘very members incorporate in his Body’ on earth is to be alive with his Spirit and so to be taken up in his action of praise and self-offering so that we may reflect something of it in our lives and relationships. To recall the Church to its true character in this connection, God calls individuals to gather the community, animate its worship and preside at its sacramental acts, where we learn afresh who we are. The priestly calling of all who are in Christ is thus focused in particular lives lived in service to the community and its well-being, integrity and holiness – lives that express in visible and symbolic terms the calling of a ‘priestly people’.The commitment of most Anglicans to the ordained ministry of women rests on the conviction that what I have just summarised makes it inconsistent to exclude in principle any baptised person from the possibility of ordained ministry. And to take the further step of advocating the ordination or consecration of women as bishops is to recognise that the public role of embodying the priestly vocation of the Church can’t be subdivided into self-contained jobs, but is in some sense organically unified, in time and space. Ordained ministry is one connected reality, realised in diverse ways. The earliest Christian generations reserved the Latin and Greek words for ‘priest’ to refer to bishops, because they saw bishops as the human source and focus for this ministry of reminding the Church of what it is. The idea that there is a class of presbyters (or indeed deacons) who cannot be bishops is an odd one in this context, and one that is hard to rationalise exclusively on biblical or patristic grounds.If that is correct, a Church that ordains women as priests but not as bishops is stuck with a real anomaly, one which introduces an unclarity into what we are saying about baptism and about the absorption of the Church in the priestly self-giving of Jesus Christ. Wanting to move beyond this anomaly is not a sign of giving in to secular egalitarianism – though we must be honest and admit that without secular feminism we might never have seen the urgency of this or the inconsistency of our previous position.Rectifying the anomaly is, we believe, good news in a range of ways. It is good news for women, who are at last assured in more than words alone that their baptismal relationship with Jesus Christ is not different from or inferior to that of men as regards their fitness for public ministry exercised in Christ’s name and power. It is good news for men, who may now receive more freely the spiritual gifts God gives to women because women are recognised among those who can at every level animate and inspire the Church in their presidency at worship – and so it is good news for the whole Church, in the liberating of fresh gifts for all. It is good news for the world we live in, which needs the unequivocal affirmation of a dignity given equally to all by God in creation and redemption – and can now, we hope, see more clearly that the Church is not speaking a language completely remote from it own most generous and just instincts.But our challenge has been and still is to try and make it good news even for those within our fellowship who have conscientious doubts. The various attempts to find a formula to secure the conscientious position of those who are not convinced about the implications of the theology summarised earlier are not a matter of horse-trading, doing deals. They are a search for ways of expressing that mutual patience and gratitude that are just as much a part of life in the Body of Christ according to St Paul – trying to do the right thing for the Body, even if this leaves loose ends.And in this context, it is important to be clear about what the wording of the legislation does and doesn’t say. In a culture of instant comment, it’s all too easy for a version of what’s being said to gain ground and dominate the discussion even when it doesn’t represent what’s actually there. We saw this in the widespread but mistaken assumption that the amendment proposed by the bishops in May gave parishes the right to choose their own bishop. We are seeing it now in the equally mistaken assumption that the word ‘respect’ in the new amendment is little more than window-dressing.The truth is that the word does have legal content. If you’re required to show ‘respect’, you need to be able to demonstrate that what you do takes account in practice of someone’s conviction. You will need to show that it has made a difference to how you act; it doesn’t just recommend an attitude or state of mind (‘with all due respect…’). The word leaves enough flexibility for appropriate responses to different circumstances, but it isn’t so general as to be toothless.The legislation isn’t perfect; all legislation for complex communities embodies compromise and unfinished business. The tough question for those who are still undecided is whether delay would produce anything better. For those who think the legislation has compromised too far, it may be important to note that conscientious opposition has not grown noticeably weaker; it can’t be taken for granted that any delay would guarantee a smoother passage. And those who think that the provision for dissent is inadequate have to reckon with the extreme unlikelihood, given the way things have gone in the last few years, that any future legislation will be able to find a more acceptable framework. The chances are that there will in fact be greater pressure from some quarters for a ‘single clause’ measure.In other words, voting against the legislation risks committing us to a period of continued and perhaps intensified internal conflict with no clearly guaranteed outcome. Of course those who believe that the episcopal ministry of women is simply contrary to God’s will for the Church of England will vote against, and there should be no unfair pressure on clear consciences. They are voting for what they truly believe is God’s purpose for his Church.But for those who find it not quite good enough or not quite simple enough, the question must be, ‘What are you voting for if you vote against this Measure?’ And what if you decide that that the answer is, uncomfortably, a period of publicly embarrassing and internally draining indecision?My hope for next month’s debate is that it will tackle what is really before us, not what it is assumed or even suspected to mean; that it will give us grounds for trusting one another more rather than less; that it will be rooted in a serious theological engagement with what makes for the good of the Church and its mission, a serious attempt to be obedient to God’s leading – and, perhaps most soberingly, that it will not ignore the sense of urgency about resolving this that is felt inside and outside the Church, often with real pain and bewilderment. As a Synod, we are asked to act not only as a legislature but as a body that serves the Kingdom of God and takes a spiritual and pastoral responsibility for its actions. And I know that Synod members, myself among them, will be praying hard about what this entails.© Rowan Williams 2012 Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Tags Women’s Ministry By Rowan WilliamsPosted Oct 19, 2012 DeAnna Bosch says: Rector Belleville, IL Rector Hopkinsville, KY October 23, 2012 at 9:56 am Scripture is very clear that women are not authorized to be priests or bishops or to have authority over men. The Church had been unwavering on the point for centuries. Women are not any less spiritual, less intelligent, less valuable but created differently than men. Many exceed men in ability- communication skills, theological understanding, human relations skills, fruit of the spirit, etc. They simply are prohibited from having authority over men as the Church is a reflection of the family and women are to be in subjection to their own husbands. All gender roles referred to in Scripture are not cultural mores but rooted in pre-Fall creation. To have women in authority over men breaks God’s divine order that He ordered. No congregation is a spiritually-healthy congregation that has a woman as pastor as it breaks God’s order at the fundamental difference from creation that He created them male and female. Comments (4) October 23, 2012 at 12:17 pm As I see it, the theological question is focused on the gender of Jesus. If Jesus’ priestly role is reserved for males, because he was male, how can his salvific acts be effective for women? In order for incarnation to take place, Jesus was restricted to one gender. But the universal church has attributed his salvific acts and incarnation to the language of ‘truly human, truly divine.’ It is Jesus’ humanity that is of utmost importance, not his gender. Therefore, all humanity made in God’s image, male and female, are redeemed. Jesus’ priesthood is also attached to his nature as fully human, fully divine–his gender is secondary.The attachment to male superiority expressed by Mr. Ruhm and defended by literalistic Biblical interpretation can only lead to the worst kinds of abuse and disenfranchisement of women. We need only look around the world to see what eventually happens (and historically has happened) to women when unyielding religious beliefs relegate them to second class humans.The gifts of ordained women at every level is evident to those of us who have experienced them and is well within the authority given to the Church by Jesus himself, “What you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, what you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” We are in the era of the great unbinding of those whom the Church has held in bondage these many centuries.

The task force was charged with studying the potential effects of eliminating the provinces and considering what structures might replace them that would support the ministry and mission of the church.Rather than recommend that provinces be eliminated, the task force instead proposed allowing dioceses to align with the province that “best suits their identity and needs.”The resolution specifically enables each diocese to “review its involvement in and relationship to its current province, and faithfully discern whether, based on its identify, gifts and needs, it may wish to explore established constitutional and canonical paths toward becoming a constituent diocese of a different province.”In making its recommendations, the task force said that “the pattern of having some type of structure connecting the diocesan level with the church is important. Rather than invent something new, the recommendation is to look at what already exists and maximize what is working, as well as shifting what may not be working in each of the provinces.”– Mike Patterson is a San Antonio-based freelance writer and correspondent for the Episcopal News Service.

first_img Howard Lake | 31 March 2011 | News Newswire Former world boxing champion Barry McGuigan was today revealed as Patron of a new charity appeal that aims to raise £4 million to fund ‘Homes from Home’, where families can stay while their child is being treated for cancer.The appeal will be run by CLIC Sargent, the cancer charity for children and young people, and Barry’s wife Sandra, who is also a Patron of the charity, has been named as Chair of the Appeal Committee.CLIC Sargent currently runs nine ‘Homes from Home’ across the UK which give families the chance to stay together free of charge close to the hospital where their child is receiving cancer treatment, so that they don’t have to make long and expensive journeys to and from hospital.The charity plans to open two new ‘Homes from Home’ at safe, convenient locations within walking distance of the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children and the Belfast City and Northern Ireland Cancer Centre, where young people with cancer are treated. It will officially launch the fundraising appeal later this year.Every week, two children and young people are diagnosed with cancer in Northern Ireland and they will usually travel to Belfast for specialist treatment. CLIC Sargent’s recent report A Long Way From Home found that on average families in Northern Ireland make a round trip of 95 miles, up to five times a week so that their child can access cancer treatment.Barry McGuigan, Patron of the CLIC Sargent Home from Home Appeal says: “I know first-hand about the vital support CLIC Sargent provides for families affected by childhood cancer, because it helped our family when my daughter Danika was diagnosed with leukaemia at the age of 11.“Home from Home accommodation in Belfast will help to reduce the emotional and financial strain for hundreds of families in Northern Ireland, so I’ll be doing whatever I can to encourage people to donate to, or support this appeal”.Dara de Burca, Director of Services at CLIC Sargent says: “CLIC Sargent already provides a range of services in Northern Ireland for children and young people with cancer, but we know that many families have to travel long distances to access cancer care so we’re delighted to be developing plans for two new Homes from Home.“CLIC Sargent has almost 30 years’ experience of building and running Homes from Home, so we know that families really value the service and we hope that the public will generously support the appeal.”The charity will be creating a number of new roles that will work alongside its existing fundraising team in Belfast to manage and promote the appeal.Every donation to CLIC Sargent’s Home from Home appeal will be used to fund CLIC Sargent’s work in Northern Ireland.ENDSNotes to editorsFor more information, an interview or images please contact Nicola Frame on 020 8752 2812 or email [email protected] Outside office hours please call 08448 481189.About childhood cancerEvery week, two children and young people in Northern Ireland are told they have cancer, and diagnosis usually comes as a shock. Treatment normally starts straightaway and can last up to three years. Although survival rates are over 70%, cancer remains the single largest cause of death from disease in children in the UK.About CLIC SargentCLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people. It provides clinical, practical and emotional support for young cancer patients and their families, from diagnosis onwards.

first_img Facebook Twitter EPA Considering Dicamba Limits SHARE The Environmental protection Agency is considering establishing limits to dicamba-based herbicides next year. Agriculture officials from several states that are advising the EPA on dicamba say that the EPA is considering banning the use of dicamba after a cutoff date, likely in early 2018. The initiative is similar to rules being considered in Arkansas, which would ban the use of dicamba after April 15. The cutoff date would aim to protect plants vulnerable to dicamba, after thousands of complaints were filed this year with states over spray drift of dicamba herbicides. State regulators and university specialists from Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, and North Dakota are pressuring the EPA to decide soon on rules guiding usage because farmers will make planting decisions for next spring over the next several months.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleLower Commodity Prices Dragging Farm OptimismNext articleIndiana Rain and Temps Remain Below Average NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter By NAFB News Service – Sep 5, 2017 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News EPA Considering Dicamba Limitslast_img read more

first_img TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Read in Turkish / TürkçeReporters Without Borders warmly welcomes the release on bail of the investigative journalists Ahmet Sik and Nedim Sener and the OdaTV news website columnists Muhammet Sait Cakir and Coskun Musluk. However, their release should not hide the fact that dozens more media workers are still held.“Naturally, our thoughts are with those journalists and their friends and families, who can finally see an end to their absurd nightmare after more than a year,” the press freedom organization said.“However, they have not yet been acquitted and the others in the OdaTV trial are still in custody, as are dozens of other journalists involved in other cases.” RSF_en Help by sharing this information TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit April 28, 2021 Find out more News April 2, 2021 Find out more “Thanks to their fame, Ahmet Sik and Nedim Sener have helped remind the world how difficult the job of a journalist can be in Turkey. But their release does not mean we should tone down our campaign. The vagueness and severity of anti-terrorist legislation and some sections of the penal code, as well as the regular use of pre-trial detention, are issues that are as pressing as ever. Things have worsened considerably in recent months. We call once again on the courts and the authorities to demonstrate their goodwill by carrying out a mass release of detainees and undertaking basic reforms.”At the end of the 11th hearing in the OdaTV trial yesterday, the 16th chamber of the Istanbul Assize Court ordered the release on bail of the four journalists, detained since 6 March 2011. Against the prosecution’s advice, the president of the court took account of the length of time they had already spent in detention and raised the possibility of lesser charges.The journalists were released yesterday evening from the high security prison at Silivri, north of Istanbul. They were greeted by friends and family, Reporters Without borders correspondent Erol Önderoglu and representatives of other Turkish organizations and media outlets. “Some day those who hatched this plot, as well as the police officers, prosecutors and judges who implemented it, will in their turn be incarcerated in this prison,” Sik said. “Make no mistake, all the pressure and persecution will lead us into a future where we shall continue to fight and to hope.” Sener added: “You cannot put reality in prison. My first article will be about Hrant Dink and I shall surprise you.” Three people were jailed in January for the 2007 murder of Dink, a Turkish-Armenian journalist. Next hearing 18 June Their colleagues still in detention include the owner of the OdaTV website, Soner Yalçin, the writer Professor Yalçin Küçük, managing editor Baris Pehlivan, columnist Müyesser Ugur. The next hearing in the trial will be held on 18 June.News editor Dogan Yurdakul, freed on bail on 22 February for health reasons, did not attend this most recent hearing, nor did fellow accused Mümtaz Idil and Iklim Ayfer Kaleli. Digital files seized from computers at the OdaTV head office in Istanbul have been handed over to the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey for analysis. Several independent experts have reported that the files were planted on the computers using viruses. In evidence at the hearing, Sik’s lawyer Fikret Ilkiz once again emphasized the weakness of the case against his client and said the practices of the court were contrary to the principles of the European Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe.“We have waited for a year to be told of your accusations,” he told the court. “It is now our turn to point the finger. The allegations against my client today are practically the same as those made when he was arrested on 3 March 2011. The questions and accusations directed at my client relate entirely to his contacts, his sources and his private life, and are based on the fact that he is a journalist. How do you think he might be able to destabilize the government by means of his book? This was published with the support of several journalists well after the election. Did it have such a terrible effect on the AKP?” More arrests of journalists Besides the dozens of journalists held in pre-trial detention, more are being arrested every month, particularly among the pro-Kurdish media. At a press conference in the south-eastern city of Diyarbakir yesterday, the DIHA (Dicle Haber Ajansi) news agency recalled that 27 of its staff were currently in prison. DIHA correspondent Gülsen Aslan was jailed on 21 February in Batman in the south-east of the country and reporter Özlem Agus was taken into custody on 9 March in Karatas prison in the southern city of Adana.Many other media workers are regularly detained for questioning. Zeynep Kuris, a DIHA correspondent in the southern city of Mersin was picked up on 14 February before being released three days later. Ismet Mikailogullari was released on 16 February after being held in police custody in Diyarbakir. Ali Bulus was also questioned with Agus in Mersin and was released. On 26 December last year, he was freed after serving seven and half years’ imprisonment for alleged membership of the PKK, the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party.

A year later, their whereabouts are unknown and they have not been tried. Other journalists fled abroad to Europe, North America and elsewhere in Africa. Eritrea is the only country in Africa and one of the few in the world with no privately-owned media. Only the government media, tightly controlled by the regime, are permitted. The few resident foreign correspondents have left the country because they could no longer operate freely and in complete safety.The country’s privately-owned newspapers announced on 18 September last year that they were publishing their last issues until further notice after getting government orders to shut down. The head of state television said on the air that the privately-owned media had “had time to fix their erring ways” and were “putting the unity of the country in danger.”At least 10 journalists were arrested and taken to the main police station in Asmara, the capital. They were Yusuf Mohamed Ali, editor of Tsigenay, who had been jailed for several weeks in October 2000; Mattewos Habteab, editor of Meqaleh, arrested several times in 2000 and 2001; Dawit Habtemichael, his deputy; Medhanie Haile (deputy editor) and Temesgen Gebreyesus (board member) of Keste Debena; Emanuel Asrat, editor of Zemen; Dawit Isaac and Fessehaye Yohannes, of the newspaper Setit; Said Abdulkader, of the magazine Admas, and a freelance photographer, Seyoum Tsehaye.Since then, four other journalists have been arrested: Simret Seyoum, managing editor of Setit, Hamid Mohamed Said and Saidia, of the government TV station Eri-TV and Saleh al-Jezaeeri, of the government radio station Voice of the Broad Masses.Four more journalists are missing: Zemenfes Haile, former founder-manager of Tsigenay, may have been held in a desert camp since 1999; Ghebrehiwet Keleta, also with Tsigenay, was reportedly arrested in July 2000. Selamyinghes Beyene, of Meqaleh, and Binyam Haile, of Haddas Eritrea, is believed to have been arrested in autumn 2001.
