  • Saints and Sinners: The weekend’s talking points

    first_img TAGS: Munster LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It was a weekend for the underdog to relish in rugby matches at home and abroad. But not everyone came up smelling of roses. The SinnersBT – Is that Bruce Television?English rugby fans were treated to a real TV treat on Friday when BT Sport screened the Bath v Saracens clash. It was a humdinger of a game, full of physicality and great skills and excitement. But dozens of armchair viewers took to Twitter to complain about one aspect of the programme – BT Sport’s apparent obsession with cutting away from the players to shots of Bath owner Bruce Craig watching the match.We had Bruce smiling, frowning, pensive, nervous, delighted…you name it, we saw it. The director clearly finds him irresistible.Among the viewers who lambasted BT Sport on Twitter was Dylan Hartley, who commented: “I think the BT camera man fancies Bath owner Mr Bruce Craig.”Former Gloucester flanker Andrew Hazell Tweeted to TV pundit and ex-Bath prop David Flatman: “How does Brucey get so much airtime?” to which Flatman replied: “He looks like Richard Gere.”Just in case you have forgotten what Mr Craig looks like in the intervening few days, here is a reminder.One for the BT Sport crew: Bruce Craig caught on camera (again)Stem the tideSummer has given way to autumn, with its brisk breezes and high tides. Some hatches certainly need to be battened down at the Old Deer Park training ground and the Kassam Stadium, as London Welsh have now leaked 33 tries in five games and have a negative points difference of 205.It’s one thing to lose your first few games after being promoted, it is quite another to get thoroughly battered in every one. Yes, London Welsh brought together an almost entirely new squad during the summer, so they need time to get organised, but that is no excuse for not being fit enough and for falling off tackles.London Welsh’s players and coaches need to find a way to at least make their games closer. If they continue to look so very far out of their depth, it will strengthen the argument of the people who say there should be no relegation and promotion between the Aviva Premiership and the Greene King Championship. I do not want to see the top tier becoming a closed shop.Not in our gameFor years, Argentina’s rugby officials lobbied and campaigned for their team to be allowed to join the Tri-Nations. Since that wish was granted, in 2012, Argentina’s players have given their all to try to claim their first win in the new Rugby Championship.This weekend they achieved that at last, but their win was tarnished by the disgraceful behaviour of the fans who shone lasers into the eyes of Australia’s goal-kicker Bernard Foley. The Wallaby missed a potentially match-winning penalty from 10m to the left of the posts, because a laser was directed at him from behind the goal.“It was happening all night on all the kicks,” said Foley. “I’m not too sure what you can do with the crowd there. It’s a bit like the soccer stuff that they do over here, the carry on.” Pumas power: Argentina celebrate their long-awaited first Rugby Championship win The SaintsPumas off the markAfter 16 losses and a draw in their first 17 Rugby Championship matches, Argentina are finally celebrating their first win. They came from 14-0 down in the first half to beat Australia 21-17, thanks to tries from Leonardo Senatore and Juan Imhoff and three penalties and a conversion from Nicolas Sanchez.The global game of rugby will benefit from having an Argentina side which can compete properly in the Championship. Congratulations to everyone involved with the Pumas – apart from the idiotic fans who feature among the Sinners, below.Toast LambSouth Africa hadn’t beaten the All Blacks since 2011 and New Zealand hadn’t lost to anyone since 2012, but 23-year-old replacement Springbok fly-half Pat Lambie didn’t let that spook him when he lined up a 78th minute, 55-metre penalty to win their Rugby Championship clash. He booted it long and strong through the posts at Ellis Park to take South Africa to a 27-25 win.The Boks had led from the 11th minute to the 69th, then Dane Coles’s first Test try put New Zealand 25-24 up. It looked like a trademark, late killer blow from the All Blacks, but then Liam Messan slammed his shoulder into Schalk Burger’s head as Coles made a tackle on the loose forward. After consulting his fellow officials and taking a good look at the replays, Wayne Barnes gave the penalty and Lambie stepped up to become the new national hero.The kid done great: Pat Lambie celebrates his match-winning penaltySam’s the manReplacement props don’t score match-changing tries very often, but Cardiff Blues front-rower Sam Hobbs had that honour at Connacht, as his touch-down at the base of the post helped his team end a three-match losing streak as they snatched a draw at the death in Galway.The half-time score had been 10-10, before Connacht stretched away to take a seemingly unassailable a 24-10 lead with two tries However, in the last ten minutes the Blues fought back with great character, and Macauley Cook dived in under the post for a try which Rhys Patchell converted. In the final minute the Welsh side turned up the pressure and recycled the ball through 32 phases until Hobbs grounded it at the base of the post, making the critical conversion easy for Patchell.Just great from TaitNewcastle Falcons last won a Premiership game on 27 October last year, but a sublime piece of skill from Alex Tait helped them beat Exeter Chiefs 29-24 and end their bad run.The Falcons trailed 14-15 at half-time at Kingston Park and Exeter were 24-17 up after 65 minutes, but then Tom Catterick scored a try for Newcastle and the conversion by Juan Pablo Socino leveled the scores.The Falcons attacked again and full-back Alex Tait came into the line, made ground up the left and produced the most sensational offload to Noah Cato as he was about to be tackled into touch. The pass came out of the side of Tait’s hand as he hit the deck and Cato scooted over to score. Socino missed the conversion but the Falcons held out for the remaining 11 minutes to seal the win.About turnReferee Nigel Owens is well known for his great rapport with the players and is recognised as one of the best officials in the game and this weekend he showed that while rugby’s core philosophy is that that referee is always right, sometimes he has to admit he is wrong.Owens showed a yellow card to Australia full-back Israel Folau for tackling Joaquin Tuculet in the air during the Test against Argentina, but when he saw the replay on the big screen in the stadium Owens changed his mind and called Folau back. It was a gutsy move, and while the Wallabies did not like some of his other decisions, they should give credit where it’s due.Step it up: Israel Folau on the charge, but it was his yellow card which proved to be a talking pointKing KeatleyMunster fans have seen their team lose two of their first four Guinness Pro12 matches this season, but they have a good reason to be cheerful this week as their team beat Leinster at the Aviva Stadium for the first time in six attempts.A week ago Munster were losing at home to the Ospreys, but seven days later a haul of 21 points from Ian Keatley helped them win 34-23 at their arch rivals’ home ground.While Keatley’s contribution was saintly, four of his team-mates blotted their copybooks by getting sin-binned. Somehow, Munster overcame their lack of numbers and gave their travelling fans a day to remember.Joost amazingJoost van der Westhuizen is fighting his battle with the deadly Motor Neurone Disease with dignity and bravery. This weekend he walked onto the Ellis Park pitch before the South Africa v New Zealand match, wearing a green Springbok jersey and accompanied by his children. He was a magnificent player and is now underlining what an extraordinary human being he is. All Blacks fly-half Aaron Cruden was awarded a re-kick when they same thing happened to him at La Plata last year. Foley did not ask referee Nigel Owens for another shot, which was a mistake on his part, but he should not have had to.Argentina needs to deal with these idiots, and fast.last_img read more

Photo: Tony Gutiérrez/ENS[Episcopal News Service] In the driveway of one of her parishioners, and with a cotton swab in her gloved hand, the Rev. Holly Herring applied holy oil to several Episcopalians, administering the anointing of the sick. For many, it was the first time they’d received any sacrament since COVID-19 forced churches throughout the country and the world to go on lockdown.Among them was cancer survivor Bill Coleman, a parishioner at Trinity Cathedral in Phoenix, Arizona, where Herring serves as canon precentor. Although it wasn’t the Holy Eucharist, for him, “it’s another form of contact. … That’s the thing I miss the most about going to church.”The Rev. Holly Herring’s dog, Siena (named for St. Catherine of Siena), tests out the pop-up tent for her person’s “Pop-up Pastor” mobile ministry Sept. 24, 2020. Herring plans to bring her canine companion along with her as the Arizona weather cools down. Photo: Courtesy of Holly HerringBefore receiving the sacrament, Coleman sought one-on-one counseling from Herring as they sat in socially distanced camping chairs placed outside her car. Since many churches are either still closed or limiting participation, Herring started “Pop-up Pastor,” an initiative to bring the church to the people.“We’ve got a lot of people in our community, and I know a lot of people in the communities of my colleagues, who really are very isolated,” Herring told Episcopal News Service. “Zoom is great; telephone calls are great; emails are great; all of these things that we use as resources to connect with people, they’re wonderful in a time of pandemic, [but] they don’t speak to the need to actually see each other’s faces in real time.”The ministry’s name derives from the pop-up tent she sets up behind her car and her pastoral role. The visits are not intended to be long-term or limited to Episcopalians; she wants to invite people to reconnect with their communities and faith, whatever tradition that may be, and refer them to those communities.“I started thinking about how food trucks go into neighborhoods and feed people,” Herring said. “I thought, ‘Why am I waiting for the office to open? I should be out in the neighborhood like a food truck, feeding people in body, mind and spirit.’”So far, Herring has set up shop in the Ahwatukee area in south Phoenix, outside of the cathedral in downtown Phoenix and to the north near Scottsdale.“It was really a joy to see even the few people who came here today,” said Carolyn Warden, a member of Trinity Cathedral, who, along with her husband Jim, hosted Herring for a soft launch of the Pop-up Pastor on Aug. 30 outside their home. “We need each other. We miss each other. Moving forward with this ministry, once this pandemic is better understood and we’re able to be a little bit more mobile, I still think that there’s a place for this.”Jim and Kay Shumaker, also Trinity parishioners, were among Herring’s first visitors seeking spiritual support. The couple from Sun Lakes, both in their 80s, have been unable to visit their son and his family during the pandemic because their age makes them more vulnerable to the virus and their daughter-in-law has an autoimmune disorder.The Rev. Holly Herring, canon precentor at Trinity Cathedral in Phoenix, administers the sacrament of anointing of the sick to cancer survivor Bill Coleman during an outing of her “Pop-up Pastor” mobile ministry Aug. 30, 2020 in Ahwatukee. Photo: Tony Gutiérrez/ENS“We’re really isolated from family, and we chatted about that,” Jim Shumaker told ENS. “Holly shared her experiences, and we commiserated back and forth.”Kay Shumaker admitted that at one point, they had to get out of the house and “snuck out and didn’t tell any of our kids” to take a short vacation in northern Arizona.“It was at that point we just had to get someplace where it was cool, and we had to get away from the four walls of the house,” she said. “But then you feel guilty. So then you talk about guilt.”“She feels guilty,” Jim Shumaker chimed in. “I said, ‘Hey, let’s do this.’”Drawing on her experience as a hospital chaplain, Herring allows time and makes space for people to arrive at their own solutions. She asks them how they’re going to care for themselves and allow others to care for them, and how they’re planning to “reconnect to the world in a world that has changed while you’ve been away.”“Pastoral care is about listening intently,” Herring said. “Someone needs for me to say, ‘I hear you. I see you. How would you solve that?’ and then to let them solve it and go, ‘You know, that sounds like something that’s feasible. Why don’t you try that?’”The Rev. Holly Herring, left, canon precentor at Trinity Cathedral in Phoenix, is joined by the Rt. Rev. Jennifer Reddall, bishop of the Diocese of Arizona, during an outing of her “Pop-up Pastor” mobile ministry outside the cathedral in Downtown Phoenix on Sept. 24, 2020. Photo: Tony Gutiérrez/ENSThe Pop-up Pastor grew out of the virtual ministries Trinity set up when the pandemic began in mid-March. Herring has chanted Compline every night and has invited laypeople to lead virtual morning and evening prayers online. Many parishes in the Diocese of Arizona have offered services online, and the diocese has highlighted one in English and one in Spanish at a different church each Sunday.“I really miss being present in the same space,” said Courtney Ellish, a member of All Saints’ Church in central Phoenix. “I have done a few Zoom things and watched services online. There’s something that virtual space lacks, and that’s being present with somebody whom you can actually feel their presence rather than just see them.”Ellish and her family have known Herring since 2014 when she served as a priest at All Saints’. Ellish shared with Herring how she’d just returned from moving her 15-year-old son Nolan, who served as an acolyte when Herring got married, to an Episcopal boarding school in Austin, Texas, where he’s a sophomore.“We talked about some good things, some bad things that are going on, and some things that I asked her for some prayer for,” Ellish said. “Mother Holly also knows the rest of my family. She’s kind of a special person in our family.”Arizona Bishop Jennifer Reddall appreciates Herring’s ministry.“I’m excited that she’s trying to find ways of caring for the people of God creatively in the midst of a pandemic and safely. This looks like a really great way to do it because you’re still distant, but you’re nearby,” Reddall told ENS. “We talk a lot about how the church needs to be outside the walls of our building. With the pandemic, nobody’s been able to be in the buildings, and so here’s a way of witnessing the love of Jesus out in the parking lots and in the neighborhoods where she’s been going.”– Tony Gutiérrez is a freelance journalist based out of Cave Creek, Arizona.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Providing for a family. Getting an education. Striving for the American dream. Sarah Thomas of Bono, AR, was like so many others, trying to better her life. She got a master’s in nursing in order to give herself and her son a bright future, but soon after found herself overwhelmed by loans.“I pursued an education and ended up with a ton of credit card debt,” says Thomas. “The American dream gone wrong.”She’s not alone. The average U.S. household with debt carries $15,355 in credit card debt and $129,579 in total, according to And the Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike this month means that you will be paying even more interest on your debt; that 0.25 percent rate increase equates to $2 billion in extra fees for Americans next year. For people like Thomas, the weight of paying off high-interest loans can be overwhelming.Thomas was able to consolidate her high-interest debt and take control of her finances. If you want to take control of your financial future and eliminate debt, these simple yet highly-effective strategies can make a big difference.Step 1: Build a solid budgetUse an online budgeting tool like to organize your spending. Even if you aren’t able to stick to the budget you set every month, it’s important to know where your dollars are going so you can take action accordingly.Step 2: Consider cost-cutting measuresCan you switch to a cheaper phone plan? Could you cut cable? What about buying generic brands? These are important questions you can ask as you audit your expenses and take appropriate measures to trim unnecessary spending.Step 3: Research debt consolidation optionsMarketplace lending, also called peer-to-peer lending, is an alternative to traditional loans through which borrowers get access to low, fixed rates (insulated from further rate increases by the Fed) with no hidden fees or prepayment penalties. The industry is growing rapidly, with one of the leading platforms, Prosper, surpassing $5 billion in loans this year.For many, a debt consolidation loan helps simplify things. Instead of having multiple bills with varying high interest rates, you can take out a loan to pay off all your debt, and then simply repay the one loan at a lower fixed interest rate. For many people, having one payment versus many makes it much easier to feel like they are in control of their finances.An added benefit is that rates are often lower than with a credit card. According to a article, it’s important to begin the peer-to-peer lending process by getting a rate quote. Then you can do the math to determine how much money you can save consolidating your debt and paying it off at an accelerated pace.Thomas decided to consolidate her debt through Prosper. She went to and selected the loan’s amount and purpose. “It’s been the easiest, most streamlined process that I have ever had,” says Thomas. “I am so thankful that we now have an attainable way to pay off debt. That way we can be proud of our hard work rather than forever burdened by it.”To learn more, check out Prosper’s blog. LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!

This project is situated in a typical Singaporean landed housing estate built in the 1980s. The estate is located in an area of interesting and seemingly disparate activities. Within a 1.5km radius, the Stark House is surrounded by other housing estates – both low and high rise, the Changi Prison Complex, Changi Airport, and several industrial and commercial areas.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellWith this fairly unusual confluence of building types, we began by questioning ourselves what context means to us. More often than not, architecture participates in multiple contexts with layers of complexities. For a new element of architecture to be introduced successfully, there is an absolute need for a holistic consideration of the various contexts involved. For the sake of inclusivity and community conduciveness, our belief lies in that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Examining what it means to respond to site context eventually became the main driver of the scheme.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellTogether with the client’s brief, the planning of the house was conceived utilising the site’s natural topography and mature trees at the back of the site. As such, it is apparent that the living spaces in the house turn away from the front where the view is that of neighbouring houses, a common consequence of landed housing estates such as this. Instead, it faces the back of the house where the greenery provides a private, green sanctuary. The site topography was taken advantage of to create a basement nook that opens out to the green. Combined with the outdoor swimming pool, the basement nook – hardly perceived as a basement – becomes the focal point of family activities and outdoor entertainment.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellSave this picture!© Derek SwalwellOn the first storey, the planning sought to maximise the porosity through the site, revealing the view towards the greenery at the back. Designing for porosity was also a response to the site constraint, a strategy to make the site appear deeper than it actually is. As one approaches the house through the long driveway, s/he is not confronted with a blank wall or garage that abruptly terminates one’s movement, but greeted with a green expanse that is welcoming both to the inhabitants and visitors alike. The entrance experience – a particular interest in our studio’s oeuvre – is enhanced. Besides enabling effective cross ventilation vital for our climate, the openness allows for borrowed views as well as daylight to filter into the living room.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellProject gallerySee allShow lessVisitor Center Unesco World Heritage Site Kinderdijk / M& DB ArchitectenSelected ProjectsHouse Momoyama / Erika Nakagawa OfficeSelected Projects Share Projectslast_img read more

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Wranglers ready to return to postseason

    first_imgHigh SchoolBasketballSportsCollegeLocal News WhatsApp TAGS  Facebook WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter There was a drop-off last season for the Odessa College men’s basketball team and the Wranglers enter the 2020-21 season looking to fix that.After four straight seasons of 28 victories, the Wranglers weren’t able to maintain that streak, finishing 14-16 and missing out on a chance to compete at the Region V Tournament.As head coach Kris Baumann returns for his third season in charge of the program, he says he’ll be looking to get things off to a better start this time around.Because of COVID-19, the start of the season was pushed from November to January. That extra time to prepare is something that Baumann says will help his team, which begins the season at No. 14 in the NJCAA Division I preseason poll.“I think that’s a really good because I think we’ll actually be a better product than we’ve ever had because we usually have to play games after a month of practice,” Baumann said. “We’ve had two or three months of practice and added some guys at Christmas that I think is really going to add to our talent level.”Baumann will lean on defense as the key to the Wranglers’ success, adding that his team will press more this year than in the past and be able to create points off of those turnovers.He’s confident in his offensive talent but understands what it takes to be on top in the challenging slate of the WJCAC.“In this league, it always comes down to the last few minutes of games and you’ve got to be able to stop people,” Baumann said. “If we take care of the ball and play great defense, we’ll always give ourselves a chance to win.”To that end, the depth of the Wranglers will be a key, with Baumann integrating several new faces with some returning players.IGuard Isaiah Turner and center Alphoussenyi Diedhiou are back and guard Aquarn Butler also returns after playing with the Wranglers two seasons ago.Baumann added that a couple of transfers from Division I programs — forwards Shakeem Alcindor and Dancell Leter — will also be among the key players that Baumann will look to step up.“Those are the guys you kind of lean on early because they’ve been in these kinds of games and they understand how to function in these games and how to be successful,” Baumann said. “Hopefully, some of the talented freshman can come right away and be that second wave of guys that can really help us win.”Baumann said that he’s ready to see what his team can do on the court and acknowledged that this will be a different year than most. Being flexible and adapting to current situations is a message that he’s shared with his team and the Wranglers have already had to make changes to their schedule.Odessa College was supposed at the JUCO Elite 8 Tournament in Edmond, Okla. before that was cancelled due to COVID-19 precautions.Instead, the Wranglers will open the year with three straight road games starting Friday at Hill College in Hillsboro. Games at Collin County Community College on Saturday in Plano and Ranger College on Sunday complete the weekend.Baumann noted that it was not going to be an easy test but is grateful just for the chance to the play. He credited the NJCAA, Odessa College president Dr. Greg Williams and athletic director Wayne Baker for getting to the point where they could take the court again.“I really feel fortunate that they’re allowing us to play and the kids are really excited,” Baumann said. “It’s been a long time since we’ve played a basketball game.”“We got a really tough way to start with three games on the road because some things got changed because of COVID. It’s just good to kind of get back some kind of normalcy playing basketball.”center_img Facebook Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – January 21, 2021 Previous articleCOLLEGE VOLLEYBALL: Odessa College ready to start delayed seasonNext articleSULLUM: Biden’s mask mandate retreat is a hopeful sign Digital AIM Web Support COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Wranglers ready to return to postseason Pinterestlast_img read more
