Star man: Brad Barritt stood out with a solid defensive display and strong running with ball in handBy Ben ColesA first win for the Lancaster regime took plenty of blood and guts but was far from the convincing performance many would have hoped for. In all honesty, England’s performance was a realistic reflection of their current state: a new team learning new combinations, which despite a considerable amount of goodwill and hard work will not gel instantly.England’s defence overall was very good, but fell short of top marks due to the amount of lapses that led to Scottish opportunities. Against better teams with a more clinical attacking edge, they would have been behind on the scoreboard by a considerable amount. Credit must go to Ben Youngs for doing his upmost to prevent Greig Laidlaw scoring a try, with the TMO ruling there was not enough clear downward pressure to award it. In other areas however, Youngs failed to truly control the tempo of the game from scrum-half.Tight call: Greig Laidlaw and Ben Youngs race to touch the ball down firstWhy? Well, principally because England were fighting a never-ending siege at the breakdown from the physical Scottish pack. Chris Robshaw’s ripped shirt may well become an iconic image of this year’s championship. In picking the lighter Phil Dowson over the heavyweight Ben Morgan, England lost some grunt in the rucks and it showed, as the Scottish pack led by Richie Gray and Man of the Match David Denton pummelled them. This battle slowed down England’s attack significantly, limiting them to few breaks and chances to unsettle a solid Scottish defence.The one moment when Scotland were rattled, though, was Charlie Hodgson’s chargedown, leading to the only try of the game. Overall, Hodgson’s return to the national team was positive. His defence, so long the bête noire of his game, was noticeably improved as he put in a series of eye-catching tackles in the first half. With Parks dithering close to his line, Hodgson pounced, with a favourable bounce setting him up for the score. This really was England’s only chance, and fortunately they took it. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Start time? Scarlets No 8 Ben MorganThat is no slant on Owen Farrell, who for such a young man delivered under the greatest pressure when he landed the 40-metre penalty late on to stretch the lead to seven. A couple of missed kicks should not detract from what was a solid debut, and switching him to fly-half for the final ten minutes was a good move by Lancaster.For next week, Morgan must start ahead of Dowson in the only real change to the XV. Toby Flood’s return to fitness could see him form a new midfield combination with Farrell, but the Hodgson-Farrell-Barritt unit is so efficient it seems wrong to change it. If England can control their own ball better, and dominate more at the breakdown, then Italy should give them few problems. But fail to front up and they will be punished. NOT FOR FEATURED In fact, Hodgson played a big part in their change of tact when they had the ball in the second half. With the wide game trying to use David Strettle and Chris Ashton leaving England isolated at the ruck, Plan B’s initiation was the right call and it paid off. Bringing in Morgan, and Geoff Parling to an extent, helped in this area whilst Robshaw along with Alex Corbisiero, Mouritz Botha and the impressive Brad Barritt kept it direct and hit hard.Overall, Barritt was by far the most impressive debutant. Not the flashiest of centres, but his power in the midfield was invaluable. The Saracen seemed to produce a string of big hits (he was England’s joint top tackler with Tom Palmer on 13), the most of the whole England team on 13 with Tom Palmer, and proved he can cut it at the breakdown when he forced Scotland to concede a penalty for holding on late in the second half. Going forward, he must start, preferably alongside another centre with a strong dose of X-factor such as Manu Tuilagi or Jonathan Joseph.
Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Según observadores las grandes potencias mundiales tendrán que intervenir en Siria para evitar males mayores. La agencia EFE informa que París está dispuesto a intervenir, no así los Estados Unidos que teme a una acción bélica de consecuencias imprevisibles. El parlamento británico votó en contra de la idea del primer ministro. Lo más triste del conflicto en Siria es la situación de los niños. Se cree que un millón de niños han huido de la guerra en su país y se han refugiado en países vecinos. Estos niños suman la mitad del total de refugiados sirios según el Alto Comisionado para Refugiados de las Naciones Unidas. Hay más de dos millones de niños desplazados en el interior del país. Líderes de la ONU consideran que la comunidad internacional ha fallado en ayudar a una generación de personas verdaderamente necesitadas.Una convención especial para la elección de un nuevo obispo para Puerto Rico ha sido pospuesta hasta nuevo aviso por decisión de las autoridades de la iglesia. Esta es la tercera vez que una convención especial para elegir obispo es suspendida a última hora en Puerto Rico. Un miembro prominente se limitó a decir que “en estos momentos el clima diocesano no es propicio”.En iglesias y centros comunitarios se celebrará el 50 aniversario del famoso discurso de Martin Luther King, Jr. que pronunciara en Washington en agosto de 1963 y conocido más por su título “Yo tengo un sueño”. El discurso fue pronunciado ante una manifestación de más de 200,000 personas en pro de los derechos civiles para los negros de Estados Unidos pero hizo historia en la nación y otros lugares. Su hija menor, Bernice, pastora bautista, dijo en una entrevista con CNN que el sueño de su padre se ha realizado en muchas formas pero que “todavía está lejos” de ser una realidad tangible para millones de personas.El famoso tren de carga conocido popularmente como “La Bestia” se descarriló en Tabasco, México, en una zona de difícil acceso con un saldo de 11 muertos y 22 heridos. El tren es usado regularmente por cientos de inmigrantes, especialmente centroamericanos, para llegar a la frontera con Estados Unidos. Los modernos polizones arriesgan sus vidas y con frecuencia han muerto al caerse del techo de los vagones. Muchos critican que las autoridades mexicanas no hacen lo suficiente para impedir que se monten en el monstruo de hierro. Una inspección preliminar permite sospechar que el accidente se produjo por la falta de un raíl en la línea.Guzmán Carriquiry, laico uruguayo secretario de la Pontificia Comisión para América Latina, afirmó recientemente que “no hace falta una teología de la liberación” para cuidar a los pobres, sino basta con vivir el evangelio y “dar el abrazo de la caridad”. En otra ocasión reciente dijo que la iglesia requiere liberar la fe de “incrustaciones mundanas” para volverla nuevamente atractiva.La posesión de un terreno en San Cristóbal de las Casas, México, ha provocado un enfrentamiento entre católicos romanos y evangélicos. El obispo Felipe Arismendi dijo que “el que usa la violencia en nombre de la religión no ha entendido el evangelio”. Y añadió además que “Jesús nos enseña a abrir el corazón y los brazos, incluso a los enemigos, con más razón a los hermanos de sangre y de fe cristiana”. El obispo exhortó a todos a que oren para que haya “paz y reconciliación, con justicia y verdad”.Un Congreso Misionero Americano católico romano reunirá a 4,000 misioneros procedentes de América Latina y se llevará a cabo el próximo otoño en Maracaibo, la segunda ciudad de Venezuela, bajo el lema “Discípulos misioneros de Cristo desde América en un mundo multicultural y secularizado”. Su misión será ofrecer a las fuerzas misioneras del continente un espacio propicio para compartir y profundizar en la reflexión, la espiritualidad y las vivencias misioneras”. El ecumenismo está entre los temas a tratar.Fallecimientos: Razziel Vázquez, prominente pastor metodista cubano falleció en Miami a la edad de 91 años el 22 de agosto. Nació en Matanzas y cuando joven fue carpintero. Considerado un elocuente predicador con frecuencia conducía campañas evangelísticas. Le sobreviven dos hijos mayores. Su esposa Isaura falleció hace varios años. Marta Verdecia, profesora y líder metodista natural de Preston en la provincia de Oriente, Cuba, falleció de una falla cardíaca el 21 de agosto. Tenía 78 años. Le sobreviven su esposo Luis Felipe, tres hijos y su hermano Carlos Verdecia.

A small wooden house for a couple in Hayama, Japan where is surrounded by a rich natural environment. The project was developed in collaboration with ENJOYWORKS, which develops its own construction method for housing. Users can plan inside the timber structure box freely. Based on that condition, we deepened our thinking of partition within the outline determined by the required number of square meters.Save this picture!© Takashi OkamotoSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Takashi OkamotoThis brought us to the concept of inserting a ‘curtain’ – curved surface – in contrast to a simple box. The ‘curtain’, which is made of acrylic panels and hemlock grids, crosses the north and south and tilts the upper end slightly. So that the first floor centered on the atrium and the second floor, which is a continuation of small rooms, make the sense of distance closer while gently dividing. In addition, openings were provided at certain points so that people can actually see and feel each other. The ‘curtain’ is a clean white surface during the day but lights up the whole house like a lantern at night. It becomes an important element of this house, which produces a whole house in various ways throughout a day.Save this picture!© Takashi OkamotoSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Takashi OkamotoThe surrounding environment also inspired us about the layout of openings. The site faces a retaining wall on the south while there is the landscape of mountains on the north. We tried to maximize this uniqueness of this site for the design. So we simply layout main openings on the south side and the north side alongside the ‘Curtain’. People can feel the atrium as a part of nature in a sense.Save this picture!© Takashi OkamotoTechnically, we utilized computational technique to design lighting, relationship between rooms, and the inclination or squeezing of walls etc. So that we could work with constructors quite efficiently in terms of sharing information about size of components for example. We focused on having a delicacy to materialize as fine concept as possible with very simple design methods.Save this picture!© Takashi OkamotoProject gallerySee allShow lessGinga Pavilion / Giovanna Taques + Guilherme Schmitt + Victor Escorsin + João Vitor …Selected ProjectsCorpland Loop Resort / RSAA/Büro Ziyu ZhuangSelected Projects Share House in Hayama / Eri Sumitomo Architects + Sumitomo Eri + ENJOYWORKS 2019 Architects: Eri Sumitomo Architects, Sumitomo Eri + ENJOYWORKS Area Area of this architecture project Year: “COPY” Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/940966/house-in-hayama-eri-sumitomo-architects-plus-sumitomo-eri-plus-enjoyworks Clipboard Photographs: Takashi Okamoto Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Manufacturers: Grohe, Toto, Acor, Ariafina, Grasshopper, MORTEX, Rhinoceros Y’s home ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/940966/house-in-hayama-eri-sumitomo-architects-plus-sumitomo-eri-plus-enjoyworks Clipboard Projects Construction: CopyAbout this officeEri Sumitomo ArchitectsOfficeFollowSumitomo Eri + ENJOYWORKSOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsHayamaOn InstagramOn FacebookJapanPublished on June 05, 2020Cite: “House in Hayama / Eri Sumitomo Architects + Sumitomo Eri + ENJOYWORKS” 05 Jun 2020.

Additional questions include asking what steps the providers are taking to ensure that clients have mental capacity to make a Will and how they guard against undue influence of others.Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, said: “With Will-writing options changing rapidly, especially in the online market, we are seeing growing opportunities for charities to reach out to new audiences. However, with such a diverse range of providers on offer, and an as yet unregulated Will-writing marketplace, it is imperative that charities choose who they work with carefully. This advice helps charities identify the questions they need to ask when making that choice in order to form a proper assessment of potential partners, identifying what service will be the best fit for their needs.”The resources have been developed with support from the Institute of Legacy Management.Matthew Lagden, CEO of the Institute of Legacy Management, added: Advertisement Free resources published to help charities choose a Will-writing partner About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Some 220,000 workers hit the streets May 17, with thousands more on picket lines, blockading fuel depots and occupying refineries in the ongoing battle against the new anti-labor law. The French government used a rarely invoked feature of the French constitution to force the reactionary law through the National Assembly on May 10 without a vote.Over 400,000 workers came out on May 19 to protest the law. These are the sixth and seventh national demonstrations against the regressive labor law in the past two months.The demand of the workers is simple: They want the new labor law completely withdrawn.Six refineries out of eight are occupied, and most fuel depots in the north and west of France are blockaded. Major ports like Nantes-Saint Nazaire and Rouen on strike, with other ports shut down. Truck drivers, who have particular grievances over working conditions, are still out.Even though the workers’ struggles have caused disruptions and aggravations for the population, 70 percent of the people in France still oppose the law, according to the General Confederation of Labor (CGT).The refinery occupations and fuel depot blockades, along with blockades truckers had erected on the roads, have led to major shortages in fuel supplies for cars and trucks. This involves not just gasoline but also diesel fuel, which is used much more in France for both cars and trucks than in the U.S. According to figures as of May 22 from the Ministry of Transportation, 1,612 gas stations out of 12,000 in France are totally or partially dry.Most of the dry gas stations are in the north and west of the country.When Prime Minister Manuel Valls was asked what his government was going to do about fuel running short, he mentioned the 90-day supply the French government keeps in emergency stockpiles. When Alain Vidalies, the secretary of state for transports, was asked about the same problem on May 22 on the main evening news program on French TV2, 20 Heures (Eight O’Clock), he said that before touching the emergency fuel, the government would use “the forces of public order” to clear the blockades, but would stay away from the refineries.Protests throughout FranceThe May 19 protests took place throughout France. In Nantes, the representative of the national government for the area invoked the state of emergency, which has been extended to November, to ban the demonstration scheduled for May 19. Still thousands of people showed up and “played cat-and-mouse with the cops for a few hours, risking six months in jail and a 7,500-Euro fine.” Sixty-six people were arrested. (Agence France Presse, May 20)In Paris, 10 people described as “militants” were prohibited from protesting, but they went to court, and most of them were allowed to join the protest.The seven unions that have been active in fighting this law — the CGT, Workers Force, Unitary Union Federation, Solidarity, National Union of French Students, National High School Union and the Independent and Democratic Federation of High Schools — issued a joint statement May 19 calling for nationally coordinated demonstrations May 26 and a national protest June 14 in Paris. The French Senate is due to deliberate about the new labor law on that day.This union struggle against a law that the French media portray as bringing great benefits to companies operating in France is growing larger and sharper. Though the workers have still failed to shake the government’s refusal to concede, the government is destroying any illusion of French democracy.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The winner will get the chance to meet Ryan Tubridy in the RTE studios and will also win a €500 Smyths voucher. World Vision Ireland’s Climate Change essay competition 2020 is opened until the 31st March for children between the ages of 8 and 18.The entries will be narrowed down to the final 10, and celebrity judge Ryan Tubridy will choose the winning essay. Teachers are encouraged to download a poster for their notice boards which they can find on the World Vision websitehttps://www.worldvision.ie/essay-competition or by clicking here Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The essay entries should be sent, with the €2 application fee (€2 per essay entry) to:Essay competition, World Vision Ireland, The Mews, Garland House, Rathmines Park, Dublin 6.Entries should follow the below instructions: · Write an essay entitled ‘How We Can Save Our Planet’.· Word count is 800 words or less.· Entry cost is €2 per essay, per child.· Children should write their name, age and school address on the top corner of the essay, and hand it to their teacher.· Teachers should put the essay entries, along with the entry fee, into an envelope and post the essays to: Essay competition, World Vision Ireland, The Mews, Garland House, Rathmines Park, Dublin 6.“The climate crisis can be a challenging topic for parents to discuss – especially with younger children, as we don’t want to cause anxiety but rather set a positive example for what can be done on a day-to-day basis.” Niall McLoughlin, CEO of World Vision Ireland, said.“Things like replacing your old lightbulbs, buying local products, walking or cycling instead of driving, shopping without buying plastic packaging, turning off appliances, reducing the thermostat , recycling and reusing can all be done while explaining why you’re doing it to your children.“It is today’s children who will face the challenges of global warming head-on, more than any other generation before them. Discussing these small and achievable behavioural changes with our own kids can go a long way towards instilling a sense of personal interest and responsibility for the planet.”“To tackle climate change, we need drastic action globally from every single pocket of society including governments, businesses, communities and schools. This includes educating kids across all age groups and levels of schooling to prepare them to be able to live more sustainable lives.” Fiona O’Malley, Director of Communications at World Vision Ireland, said.“Education can play a key role in innovation and investments in environmentally-sound technologies and infrastructure, sustainable livelihoods and lifestyle choices. Schools play a pivotal role in teaching students how to be environmentally responsible. “Today’s children are tomorrow’s business leaders, decision makers and politicians. They will be the ones shaping the future of the country, our economy, and our transport; so it’s important that they are equipped with the knowledge of the impact of global warming, and how to tackle it. We can only ever be the holders of today.“Our children are the finders of tomorrow and it’s our job to shape and mould them to make sure that is a better tomorrow. We believe this essay competition is a great way to start the climate change conversations in schools across the country, in a positive and creative way.“It is important for the youth to understand the astronomical damage global warming is doing to our planet, and the positive actions we need to take at a rapid rate, like planting million and millions of trees. It can be a heavy subject for children to take on but there can be positive feelings when they take active steps to be part of the solution, like tree-planting.“If parents and teachers are lucky enough to be able to travel, consider taking the children to see places and things that you can turn into a climate discussion. Few things can teach or explain the magnitude and power of the ocean better than seeing it – and with the waters lapping against the shore, a quick discussion of sea-level rise may feel more concrete and more real.“It’s important to balance the negative issues we face with positive actions that children can take. Children today will have to deal with the impacts of climate change – more than any previous generation. As a parent, guardian, teacher, or caregiver, we all have a responsibility to do our best to make sure they’re ready.”For further information on how to enter the climate change essay competition go to – https://www.worldvision.ie/essay-competition WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostRyan Tubridyworld vision Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Print WhatsApp Previous articleStone Roses frontman Ian Brown to play Live at Big Top in LimerickNext articleWater levels continue to rise on River Shannon Meghann Scully Facebook
Rawf8/iStock(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) — A man has been arrested for murder after a memory card labeled “Homicide at midtown Marriott” that contained videos and images of a violent attack was discovered on an Alaska street, authorities said.A woman called Anchorage police on Sept. 30 to say she found an SD card lying on the ground, and that it contained disturbing videos from early September that showed a woman being beaten, raped and strangled, according to court documents.The SD card contained 39 images and 12 videos, the court documents said.Some of the footage showed a naked woman “moaning and struggling to breathe,” and trying to fight back, documents said. In another video, the suspect is seen stomping on the woman’s throat with his foot, documents said and laughing as he strangles her.Images also showed the victim in the back of a truck, documents said. The victim was later identified as 30-year-old Kathleen Henry, police said Thursday.Police have charged Brian Smith, 48, with first-degree murder, and said he had a room registered at that hotel in question during that time period and a car matching the truck seen on the footage, and that his accent matches the voice heard in the video, court documents said.Detectives found that Smith’s phone pinged “to a location on Rainbow Valley Road along the Seward Highway within minutes of the last still image from the SD card of the female in the back of the black truck,” according to court documents.On Oct. 2, two days after the SD card was found, Henry’s remains were discovered near Seward Highway, the Anchorage Police Department said.Smith was taken into custody at an Anchorage airport on Tuesday.Smith has pleaded not guilty. His attorney declined to comment to ABC News on Friday.A connection between the suspect and the victim was not clear.The police department said it “extends its gratitude to the citizen who stepped forward with the evidence.”Her actions “played an instrumental role” and “serves as another example of when you see something suspicious, say something,” said police.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
