No InstallTaonga: The Island FarmZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen Herald KCS-content Share IRELAND’S newly elected Prime Minister Enda Kenny is facing an assault on Ireland’s sacrosanct 12.5 per cent corporate tax rate by Eurozone leaders, who declared on Friday that they would move to enforce a uniform corporate tax regime across the region.In negotiations intended to resolve the sovereign debt crisis, Eurozone ministers refused to lower the punitive interest rates on Ireland’s €85bn bailout if it does not bring its tax regime into line with the Eurozone norm of around 24 per cent.The European Council declared that the European Commission “intends to present a legislative proposal on a common consolidated corporate tax”, which could effectively rule Ireland’s lower tax rate illegal.The Council’s anti-Irish stance was underscored by its decision to lower the interest rate Greece must pay on its bailout by one per cent, but to refuse Ireland similar relief.The pact agreed on Friday also extended maturity on Greece’s bailout debt to 7.5 years and, following the vote in favour of a Tobin tax by the EU Parliament last week, promised to develop a regional financial transaction tax despite warnings that such it could devastate European trade.In a major German concession, the pact also boosted the main Eurozone bailout fund’s ability to lend out up to its full €440bn (£382bn) capacity by guaranteeing more of its debt. The bailout fund was also given power to intervene in primary sovereign debt markets in exceptional circumstances.The latter move will be welcomed by the European Central Bank, which has been single-handedly propping up Eurozone sovereign debt markets over recent months.AT A GLANCE | EUROZONE PACT● Context: Eurozone leaders met on Friday to thrash out a solution to the region’s sovereign debt crisis. The resulting pact exceeded expectations, but markets are still awaiting further details due after another summit on 24 March.● Bailout fund: The pact signed on Friday extended the ability of the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) to lend out all of its €440bn funds in order to bail out sovereigns. This effectively boosts the fund’s size, since it was before limited by Germany’s refusal to guarantee its debt.● Bond market purchases: Euro leaders also gave the EFSF permission to buy sovereign debt “with strict conditionality”. The ECB had been pushing for its bond-purchasing duties to be taken over by the region’s bailout fund.● Relief for Greece: The interest rate on Greece’s €110bn bailout was cut by one per cent and its maturity extended to 7.5 years in a bid to avoid a default.● Fiscal rules: Ministers also agreed that Eurozone states should implement a legally binding cap on their debt, though did not specify what form this should take.● Common tax rates: In an attack on Ireland’s low corporate tax, the pact promised to legislate for a common regional rate. whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ EU attack on Irish tax rate last_img read more

France team to take on Ireland – Poitrenaud back

first_imgDamien Traille seems to be the player France coach Marc Lièvremont cannot do without as he has picked him in a different position for the third Test running. Outside-half when they had a shocker against Australia, Traille was played at full-back in the 34-21 win over Scotland and now he will play at inside centre in Dublin on Sunday.To be fair to Lièvremont this latest change has been forced on him as Clément Poitrenaud comes into the starting XV at full-back, replacing the injured Maxime Mermoz. The veterans Yannick Jauzion and Sébastien Chabal stay on the bench for the trip to the Aviva Stadium.View highlights of France 34 Scotland 21 here LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS France team to play IrelandClément Poitrenaud; Yoann Huget, Aurélien Rougerie, Damien Traille, Maxime Medard; François Trinh-Duc, Morgan Parra; Thomas Domingo, William Servat, Nicolas Mas, Julien Pierre, Lionel Nallet, Thierry Dusautoir (captain), Julien Bonnaire and Imanol Harinordoquy.center_img Replacements: 16-Guilhem Guirado, 17-Sylvain Marconnet, 18-Jérôme Thion, 19-Sébastien Chabal, 20-Dimitri Yachvili, 21-Yannick Jauzion, 22-Vincent Clerclast_img read more

Toulon v Scarlets live stream: How to watch from anywhere

first_imgFast and furious is the plan for Scarlets, who twice came unstuck to this evening’s opponents in the Challenge Cup pool stage. Here’s the lowdown on this quarter-final LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Toulon v Scarlets live stream: How to watch from anywhereThese sides met in the Challenge Cup pool stage, Toulon prevailing 17-16 at State Félix Mayol last November and 27-15 back in Llanelli in January.Those defeats weren’t enough to stop the Welsh franchise progressing from a pool also containing Bayonne and London Irish. Pau looked set to displace them from the top eight seedings but failed to get the try bonus point they needed against Leicester Tigers – having scored three first-half tries.Scarlets, therefore, might regard this evening’s match at Stade Félix Mayol (8.15pm) almost as a free shot. They will want an open game and a quick tempo as they hope to tire the hulking French forwards. Toulon scored three penalty tries from (collapsed) driving mauls in last week’s 36-14 defeat of Lyon in the Top 14, so the danger of conceding penalties in their own half is all too obvious.Threat: Scarlets wing Steff Evans has made 11 offloads in this season’s Challenge Cup (Inpho)“They are athletic, big men,” said Scarlets head coach Glenn Delaney. “We also have some pretty big men in our forward pack too, but the game we want to play is a free-flowing one which has 15 players operating at high skills looking to exploit space.”Wales internationals Jonathan Davies, Liam Williams and Rhys Patchell all ran out of time to make the side after injury, but Scarlets have an impressive-looking line-up.There are five changes to the side that finished the Pro14 campaign by beating Dragons 41-20.Features are European debuts for the club for summer signings Johnny Williams and Sione Kalamafoni, places after injury for Gareth Davies and Blade Thomson, and a return to a former stomping ground for Leigh Halfpenny. Tyler Morgan, signed from the Dragons, is set to make his Scarlets bow.Toulon have won 11 of their last 12 Challenge Cup games, including their last six in a row. The only defeat in that sequence was the 2012 final when they lost to Biarritz. Giant lock Romain Taofifenua returns to their pack while ex-Worcester wing Bryce Heem shifts to centre to accommodate Gabin Villière.Toulon lack the superstar names they had during the days of Jonny Wilkinson and Co, but they have France captain Charles Ollivon in the back row alongside one of the all-time greats in Sergio Parisse, still going strong at the age of 37.Scarlets score a lot of tries from turnovers, in part because Josh Macleod is so adept at turning over the ball. The openside will have a key role to play this afternoon.Goalkicking could also prove a factor, with Toulon having achieved only a 59% success rate in this season’s competition compared to 89% by the Scarlets.The clubs have a history of close matches, such as the 2017 meeting in Toulon when Halfpenny and Johnny McNicholl both crossed for tries. Watch highlights of that clash here.Toulon: Daniel Ikpefan; Masivesi Dakuwaqa, Bryce Heem, Duncan Paia’aua, Gabin Villière; Baptiste Serin, Tane Takulua; Jean Baptiste Gros, Anthony Etrillard (capt), Beka Gigashvili, Swan Rebbadj, Romain Taofifenua, Charles Ollivon, Raphael Lakafia, Sergio Parisse.Replacements: 16 Bastien Soury, 17 Florian Fresia, 18 Emerick Setiano, 19 Erwan Dridi, 20 Brian Alainu’uese, 21 Julien Ory, 22 Louis Carbonel, 23 Facundo Isa.————————————————————————————————————————————— Scarlets: Leigh Halfpenny; Johnny McNicholl, Steff Hughes, Johnny Williams, Steff Evans; Dan Jones, Gareth Davies; Wyn Jones, Ken Owens (capt), Samson Lee, Jake Ball, Sam Lousi, Blade Thomson, Josh Macleod, Sione Kalamafoni.Replacements: 16 Ryan Elias, 17 Phil Price, 18 Javan Sebastian, 19 Lewis Rawlins, 20 James Davies, 21 Kieran Hardy, 22 Angus O’Brien, 23 Tyler Morgan.Legend: Toulon No 8 Sergio Parisse is the third most-capped player in Test rugby (AFP/Getty Images)Here we explain how to find a reliable live stream for Toulon v Scarlets wherever you are.How to watch Toulon v Scarlets from outside your countryIf you’re abroad, but still want to watch your local Challenge Cup coverage, like Toulon v Scarlets, you can do so by using a VPN – Virtual Private Network.

Committee considers social justice theology proposals

first_img July 6, 2018 at 8:17 pm I agree with you PJ. I have been reading throughout this site. Anti Israel, Changing the BCP (discussed two options) It was very apparent the reporting committees bias. Continued to say “for the time being” meaning we might not get the BCP changed this time but it will happen. Changing the Lords Prayer on and on. Maybe, I am cynical but the “big brother” approach of we know whats best for you even though you don’t ” bless your heart” mentality is very concerning. As an ethnic minority who is a conservative “gasp” I have heard this too often from some in the “majority” who think they know what is best for me and my race. “SOP” of some of my liberal brother and sisters. Peace be with all of us Episcopalians! By Mike PattersonPosted Jul 6, 2018 Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Shreveport, LA PJ Cabbiness says: Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Comments (17) Rector Albany, NY Jane Scott says: July 6, 2018 at 7:22 pm Are we a church or a leftist political action organization? The lines are becoming blurred. Billy Beets says: An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Jerry Williams says: [Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] How does social justice fit into the mission and ministry of the Episcopal Church? This is the question a proposed resolution presented during the 79th General Convention would seek to understand.Resolution A056 asks that the General Convention direct the presiding officers of the Episcopal Church to appoint a Task Force on the Theology of Social Justice Advocacy as Christian Justice. If approved and implemented, the task force, over the next triennium, would consider scripture, approved liturgical resources, other theological texts and previous actions of General Convention to summarize ways the church understands social justice as an essential mission and ministry.The resolution also calls for the task force to study how the church currently fosters the theological understanding of social justice and asks it to recommend ways to foster conversations on social justice across the church.The convention’s Ministry Committee on July 6 heard three speakers in favor of the resolution.Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.The Rev. Kenneth Brannon, Idaho deputy and member of the Ministry Committee, questioned the need for a establishing a task force when churches are already involved in addressing social justice issues. “Social justice is front and center to what we do in the Episcopal Church,” he said.Responding to his question, the Rev. Tracie Middleton, Fort Worth deputy and a board member of the Association of Episcopal Deacons, said that a theology of social justice could eventually lead to more resources on how congregations might tackle social justice issues. “There is an urgent demand for how we do it,” she said.In an interview after the hearing, Middleton said clergy might be aware of only a few of the social justice issues that parishioners are passionate about. The ability to have a resource network across the country to share ideas and knowledge would be beneficial by bringing priests and deacons up to speed on the myriad social justice issues their parishioners care most about.The resolution asks that the General Convention request the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance to consider budgeting $15,000 to implement the resolution.The resolution was proposed by the House of Deputies’ Committee on the State of the Church. In its Blue Book Report, the committee concluded that while the church is “doing many different types of work, social justice work is not robust across the church.”Most especially, the committee discovered that the understanding of “social justice” varies broadly and that activities across the church tend to fall more “into the realm of alleviation of suffering and the work of charity than the work of justice.”The task force said this distinction caused “anxiety” for some who completed a survey, “both in terms of trying to define charity work as ‘justice’ and from some who do not believe the church should be doing justice work.” Some survey respondents replied that the church should “remove itself from politics and get on the work of social justice.”“We heard concerns that social justice is ‘only about politics,’” the task force reported.The task force also heard about “a sense of being disconnected from the words of the wider church and General Convention on the theology of social justice.” It said, “Some felt that social justice preaching should not advocate a particular view on reform or that the emphasis should be on ‘outreach ministry’ but not social justice.”Respondents to a survey conducted for the committee were eager for resources, suggestions and people to reach for help, and “almost all who responded acknowledged a need for this work and many a desire to do it. They wanted to connect with others doing this work but did not know how to find them.”To clarify misunderstandings, the committee defined social justice work as “acts to address and heal the root cause of the injustice which prompted our need for charity in the first place.”“In our churchwide discussions,” the task force report stated, “we talk about justice in terms of promoting social change and responding to long-term needs in combination with work to alleviate the suffering before us.”– Mike Patterson is a San Antonio-based freelance writer and correspondent for the Episcopal News Service. He is a member of ENS General Convention reporting team and can be reached at [email protected] July 7, 2018 at 12:05 pm One of the important aspects of social justice is its role in spiritual formation. I think social justice needs to be framed within a context of spiritual formation as does compassion and love which I see are the constant goals toward which spiritual formation aspires.

If the gender of Jesus and his Father is somehow offensive, there will be no hesitation to suppress and demean ideas from the “other” and those who introduce them. The church has been subsumed. Track the calls for political action. Is there any difference from the party talking points in content and timing ? If you are Democrat, it is a great idea, and very well done. If the church is leading, fine. If the church is a tool, somebody sold us out. Claiming your political goals have “God on our side” leaves one open to be manipulated by politicos and cheapens the faith that should be guiding us independent of the politicians. Control the language, control the people. “Social Justice”, you are well on your way. Remove the terms associated with traditional faith, he, him, father, son. Smooth. Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 July 12, 2018 at 4:21 pm What of those Episcopalians who, for sound reasons, do not accept the Jesus Movement or want to be a part of it? Does the inclusiveness of The Church embrace them without ranker? From what I read and hear, I doubt that very much. July 11, 2018 at 7:39 am The term “social justice” is an ambiguous term and can mean different things to different people so its difficult to determine where the church is coming from. If it means we should be helping the less fortunate in our community then I totally agree with that. No one should be hungry, cold or without shelter. We should be helping people to “get on their feet” and in a position to support themselves and not remain wards of the welfare state indefinitely.When the church speaks of “social justice” does it really mean socialism, “what’s your’s is mine” mentality. “You work I take.”. If that’s the case then the church simply a shill for the left. Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ July 7, 2018 at 3:05 pm Unfortunately, the term “social justice” is identified with radical progressive politics, whatever its origins. Political alignment with one party, even with its jargon, immediately divides people. Jesus gave us the universal blueprint and terminology to address our challenges. What would be the reaction if the church adopted “Make the Episcopal Church Great Again! “? The term social justice has come to denote a sense of class warfare. Who makes the decision as to what political programs are good or not ? Where does that decision come from ? Are these decisions to call for political action most often aligned with one party or another ? Is there ever a call to action to support another party ? How soon after a political call to action by one party does this church echo that call ? It might seem right within the bubble of your peers, but the answer is in the “other” that you may be alienating.

July 7, 2018 at 9:27 am As a denomination, we are really good at charity, but I know very few Episcopalians, lay and ordained, who are doing social justice work. I think it’s a balancing act that is almost impossible to navigate. We are called to alleviate the suffering of our sisters and brothers, but developing effective social justice efforts is playing the long game. We want quick, easy, feel good work, so feeding to homeless is mistaken for social justice. I would welcome this networking effort as a means of connecting resources across the church and helping educate the church on what social justice truly is.

Social justice work is not on the agenda of most Episcopal churches. Clergy know they will hear cries of “Keep politics out of the Church” if they advocate working to change unjust practices. Even in progressive parishes the number of members who turn out for this vital work is small relative to the size of the congregation. To remedy this situation should be a number one priority of the Episcopal Church. Bishops need to give bold leadership, clergy need to be trained, challenged, and encouraged; and the laity must be recognized and applauded for their efforts. If we truly are part of the Jesus Movement, we must show neighbor love by exposing unjust practices and working to remove them. A budget of $15,000 for creating a network to share ideas and knowledge will not solve the problem, but it may help spread awareness of what needs to be done and the creative, disciplined work for justice being done in some places.

The only way we can honestly answer the charge that we’re an arm of the Democratic Party is if we recognize that the Christian vision is far more radical than anything American liberals have ever dreamed of. Imagine a Church that ignores national politics altogether, and instead envisions a social justice campaign built on the bulwark of scripture and the rich Anglican legacy of social justice concern. We could turn the world upside down (in other words, see more and more of the Kingdom of Heaven come to earth).

Studying, identifying and working to overcome social injustice seem synonymous to me to carry out “and love thy neighbor as thyself”, the second of the two commandments upon which Christ said “hang all the law and the prophets.”As a lay person I would surely appreciate knowing where those working in this area have felt productive and I would like to know how I can help. It seems reasonable and responsive at the national and diocesan level to study, research, write about, and inform us parishioners first about social injustice and then simultaneously illustrate what’s working using both religious and secular methods to ensure fairness in our neighborhoods, schools, courts, stretching at every step to include our nation. July 12, 2018 at 4:25 pm You may think that this is a silly question. Nonetheless, people in the Red Cross and other secular organizations seek social justice. What is the difference, if any, between an Episcopalian doing this and, say, on the other hand, a member of a secular atheistic, or at least non-religions, organization?

Fred Fenton says: Arthur Lee says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC July 7, 2018 at 10:03 am I’m fine with a focus on social justice so much as it coincides with individual justice. When social justice violates an individual’s right to justice, that’s a problem. Social justice seems designed to stratify us into competing groups and some groups will just have to lose so some larger social justice goals can be met. That’s certainly not what Jesus preached. Jesus proclaimed salvation for each and every individual, not salvation for certain groups. Frank Harrision says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AKlast_img read more

Craig Joubert breaks silence on THAT decision against Scotland in the 2015 World Cup

first_imgTuesday Jun 28, 2016 Craig Joubert breaks silence on THAT decision against Scotland in the 2015 World Cup Referee Craig Joubert has spoken about the infamous decision that effectively cost Scotland a place in the 2015 Rugby World Cup semi finals, saying that he made an honest mistake, but under protocol he had no way of referring to the TMO for help.It was heartbreaking to watch at the time, even for neutrals, as Joubert made a crucial penalty decision in very tricky conditions, without the help of the ‘available’ technology.It meant that Australia had a chance of taking the lead in the match and advancing to the semi final, which they did via a successful Bernard Foley kick.As the Wallabies celebrated the dramatic 35-34 victory at the final whistle, Joubert made matters worse as he ran from the field, engraging Scottish players and fans. That led to an investigation.In April of this year Joubert spoke to the Telegraph to explain his reasoning, stating that he wanted to avoid any possible ugly confrontation on the field, in full view of the public.Despite the protocols that prevented him from checking with the TMO being theirs, World Rugby took the quite unprecedented step of publicly stating that Joubert got the decision wrong.Now eight months after that extremely unfortunate night, Joubert is still being asked about it, this time by the same people that hung him out to dry post match, his employers.The 2011 Rugby World Cup final referee – another story altogether – has now opened up, saying that the entire incident led to a ‘very difficult time in my career’.It will be scant consolation for Scottish fans though, who will never forget what could have been a famous day in their history. Instead, what was actually a classic knockout match, was remembered for it’s unsavoury ending. Hit play below to see what Joubert had to say about it.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The  Modern Tube House is modeled after a traditional Hanoi tube house. These houses are so long and so deep that they typically have internal courtyards to provide natural light and natural ventilation at mid-block locations. Passage through the house is a movement between inside and outside, external space and internal space.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanWe’ve taken this vernacular model and updated it. Not only can one travel through the house in the traditional method, we introduced a second, typically Japanese element: moving walls. Walls, in the Japanese sense, are really screens and as the screens open and close they create either closure or transparency.Save this picture!Courtesy of MimANYSTUDIOEven the built form is considered as a void. The central social space in the house is the family dining room. This room is located at the very center of the house between the two internal courtyards and the brick house.Save this picture!Section A1To accentuate the sense of the open center in the house, the structural system for the glass house is steel, unlike the rest of the house, which is concrete. In this manner, the structural system of the project responds to nuances in the architectural concept.Save this picture!Courtesy of MimANYSTUDIOProject gallerySee allShow lessArchiculture Interviews: Maurice CoxVideosThe Power Of The Plan: Drones And Architectural PhotographyArticles Share Modern Tube House / MimANYSTUDIO + REALSave this projectSaveModern Tube House / MimANYSTUDIO + REAL Vietnam Houses Save this picture!Courtesy of MimANYSTUDIO+ 22 Sharecenter_img Architects: MimANYstudio, REAL Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•tx.
