  • RFU advertise for new England attack coach

    first_img We are so used to hearing about ‘global searches’ and headhunted hires, but the RFU have taken the step to post an advert for the next England attack coach. Talking today of the move to find his next assistant, boss Eddie Jones said: “At the end of the day we need to find the best coaches for England.”In the wake of a fifth-place finish in the Six Nations, England parted ways with assistant coaches Simon Amor (attack) and Jason Ryles (skills). Now, the RFU have released a job description detailing the skills needed to coach of England’s elite players alongside Jones, forwards coach Matt Proudfoot and defence coach John Mitchell.The description explains that the hire will be “responsible for leading England’s attack play and providing specialist skills coaching for all players selected in the senior EPS.“Leading the development and implementation of England’s attacking system will involve detailed analysis and review work to ensure all players fully understand the plan and can execute it accordingly.  You shall also be responsible for providing a systematic and progressive skill development programme to enhance skill levels in all EPS players.You will also be an excellent team-orientated coach with the ability to contribute and add value in areas outside of your immediate responsibility.” England on the attack during the 2021 Six Nations (Getty Images) Can’t get to the shops?

For the time being though, according to Jones, the head coach will take on attack coaching for the summer Tests. He told the BBC: “I coached attack from 2016 until 2018, until (former attack coach) Scott Wisemantel took over. So we are just winding back the clock a little bit there, because I want our attack to be able to adapt to how the game is going.“The game is going in a quicker, more instinctive way, and I think at the moment I am probably the best person to do that.“I will need an assistant in the future and will maybe need someone to take it over in the future. But for this period of time, where I want to set some stones in place for the foundation, I think I am the best person to do it.” The job description was posted online for an assistant to Eddie Joneslast_img read more

Trump, el 21 de septiembre de 2016, en el Centro de Avivamiento del Espíritu en Cleveland Heights, Ohio. Foto de Jonathan Ernst/ REUTERS[Episcopal News Service] La participación de la Catedral Nacional de Washington y de su coro en la próxima inauguración del presidente electo Donald J. Trump ha provocado inquietud en ámbitos de la Iglesia Episcopal.El coro de la Catedral aceptó una invitación a participar durante el preludio musical a la ceremonia de inauguración del 20 de enero. Ese preludio comienza a las 9:30 A.M. (hora del Este). La ceremonia misma está programada a empezar a las 11:30 A.M. El programa puede verse aquí.La catedral confirmó hace tres semanas que una vez más desempeñaría uno de sus papeles tradicionales en la vida de EE.UU. ofreciéndoles a Trump y a la nación una oportunidad de unirse en oración. El 58º. Oficio de Oración por la inauguración presidencial, al que se asiste sólo por invitación, tendrá lugar a las 10 A.M. del 21 de enero, al día siguiente de que Trump haya jurado como el 45º. Presidente.Luego de que la noticia de la participación del coro provocara un diluvio de comentarios en las redes sociales así como correos electrónicos a los funcionarios que participan, el obispo primado Michael Curry, la obispa de la Diócesis de Washington Mariann Budde y el deán de la catedral Randolph Hollerith emitieron declaraciones el 12 de enero en que abordaban esas inquietudes.“Todos sabemos que estas elecciones han sido contenciosas y que episcopales de todos los criterios sienten serias preocupaciones”, dijo Curry en su declaración. “Reconocemos que estas elecciones han sido contenciosas, y la Iglesia Episcopal, al igual que nuestra nación, ha expresado una diversidad de puntos de vista, algunos de los cuales han surgido con profundo pesar”.Reconociendo que ha habido “mucha discusión y alguna controversia” respecto a la pertinencia de que la catedral celebre el tradicional oficio de oración, y que uno de sus coros cante en la inauguración, Curry dijo que esas cuestiones suscitan “algunas interrogantes fundamentales respecto a la oración”.“Cuando oro por nuestros líderes, ¿por qué lo hago? ¿Debo orar por un líder con el que discrepo? Cuando oro, ¿qué creo que estoy llevando a cabo?” Tal es la manera en que Curry definió las interrogantes.El Obispo Primado dijo que la costumbre de orar por los líderes “está arraigada en nuestras tradiciones bíblica y anglicana/episcopal”.Curry expresó que la tradición de orar significa que los episcopales piden que “su liderazgo sirva no a un interés partidista, sino al bien común”.“Podemos y, ciertamente, creo que debemos orar por todos los que dirigen nuestro orden cívico, nacional e internacionalmente. Oro por el Presidente en parte porque Jesucristo es mi Salvador y Señor”, afirmó él. “Si Jesús es mi Señor y el modelo y guía de mi vida, su camino debe ser mi camino, aunque sea difícil. Y orar por otros es parte de la manera en que sigo el camino de Jesús”.La construcción de la 58ª. Plataforma inaugural proseguía el 4 de enero en la fachada occidental del Capitolio de EE.UU. Foto del Comité Congresional Conjunto de la Ceremonia Inaugural vía Facebook.La oración es tanto “contemplativa como activa”, dijo Curry, añadiendo que las personas que oran deben escuchar a Dios y servir y dar testimonio al mundo en el nombre de Jesús.“Participamos como seguidores de Jesús en la vida de nuestro gobierno y de la sociedad, cuidando los unos de los otros, y laborando por políticas y leyes que reflejen los valores y las enseñanzas de Jesús de ‘amar a tu prójimo’ de ‘obrar con los demás como querrías que obraran contigo’ para diseñar un orden cívico que refleje la bondad, la justicia, la compasión que vemos en el rostro de Jesús, que sabemos que refleja el corazón y el sueño mismos de Dios para todos los hijos de Dios y la creación de Dios”, dijo.Hollerith respondió a las preguntas sobre la participación del coro en su declaración.“Nuestro coro canta en la inauguración para celebrar la transición pacífica del poder que es esencial a nuestro gobierno democrático”, afirmó. “Permítanme aclarar: No oramos ni cantamos para bendecir una ideología política o una agenda partidista, independientemente del hombre (o la mujer) que preste ese sagrado juramento del cargo. Cantamos para honrar la nación”.El deán dijo que los miembros del coro no están obligados a participar en lo que calificó de “parte de nuestro llamado a servir como un hogar espiritual para la nación”.“En nuestro lastimado y polarizado país, esperamos que el don de nuestra música pueda ayudar a recordarnos nuestros ideales y aspiraciones más elevados como una nación bajo la protección de Dios”, resaltó él.Budde dijo que “si bien no les pido que estén de acuerdo, simplemente les pido que tengan en cuenta que nosotros actuamos también [movidos] por principios espirituales.“Esos principios, si bien pueden parecer que entran en conflicto con los vuestros, son también esenciales a la obra que tenemos por delante”.El primer principio, dijo ella, es que las iglesias episcopales “acogen a todas las personas en nuestras casas de oración”.“Acoger no significa condonar discursos o comportamientos ofensivos, no significa que estemos de acuerdo con ellos o que busquemos legitimarlos’, afirmó. “Simplemente acogemos a todos en esta casa de oración, en pleno reconocimiento de que todos nosotros estamos necesitados de oración”.El segundo principio, expreso Budde, es que “en tiempos de división nacional, la Iglesia Episcopal está llamada a ser un lugar donde los que discrepan puedan reunirse para orar y aprender y para trabajar por el bien de todos”.Diciendo que ella está “alarmada por algunas de las palabras y actuaciones del Sr. Trump y por los que ahora se sienten incentivados para hablar y actuar de maneras odiosas”, Budde agregó: “creo en el poder de Dios para obrar en pro del bien y en la capacidad de nuestra nación de mostrarse a la altura de sus mayores ideales”.Algunos episcopales y otras personas han cuestionado si la catedral debía celebrar su acostumbrado oficio de oración por el presidente entrante al día siguiente de su inauguración.A partir de la primera inauguración del presidente Franklin Delano Roosevelt en 1933, han tenido lugar oficios de oración inaugurales en la Catedral de Washington, la cual se define como “una casa de oración para todo el pueblo”. Esa tradición ha sido más coherente en los últimos tiempos desde la segunda inauguración del presidente Ronald Reagan en 1985. La excepción fue el presidente Bill Clinton, que eligió el templo metropolitano de la Iglesia Metodista Episcopal Africana, la histórica iglesia negra del centro de Washington, para sus dos servicios de oración inaugurales. La catedral también ha sido el sitio de oficios fúnebres y de recordación por casi todos los 21 presidentes de EE.UU. que han muerto desde la fundación de la catedral.“En un momento cuando las emociones están en carne viva, esperamos ofrecer unos breves momentos de solaz espiritual y el don restaurador de la belleza trascendente”, dijo Budde. “También queremos que la nación sepa que aún estamos aquí, como pueblo de esperanza. Si bien la inauguración es una ceremonia cívica más bien que religiosa, es también una ocasión para orar y una oportunidad de ofrecer el bálsamo de la belleza”.Budde dijo anteriormente que ella participaría en ese oficio, como es tradicional para el obispo de Washington, [cuya jurisdicción] incluye el Distrito de Columbia y cuatro condados de Maryland.Curry le ha pedido al obispo sufragáneo para las Fuerzas Armadas y los Ministerios Federales, James Magness (“Jay”) que lo represente en el oficio de oración porque el Obispo Primado estará dirigiendo una peregrinación de reconciliación a Ghana, un compromiso que había contraído desde hacía más de un año.– La Rda.

  • Create a ‘wow-worthy’ home entry using fun and free online design…

    first_img Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Entire TV shows are dedicated to it, and real estate agents say it is essential when selling your home. So what is “curb appeal?” More importantly, how do you create it for your home?Even if you’re not planning to sell your home any time soon, some simple steps to boost the attractiveness of your home from the street (so called “curb appeal”) can make it feel more appealing to you and your guests.Start with the front door.A new door provides opportunities to personalize the home’s entry to best suit your current tastes.From TV to magazines to popular websites, many home improvement experts call out the front door as one of the most important aspects for creating curb appeal. “While curb appeal depends on many factors – landscaping and siding, lighting and lawn care – the front door, the focal point of the facade, trumps the others in terms of importance,” says Donna Boyle Schwartz, a home furnishing writer and editor. Schwartz and other experts offer a range of tips for enlivening your front door.At the most basic level, a new coat of paint for the front door is a simple and inexpensive update that only takes a few hours to complete. More homeowners are experimenting with bold primary colors on their doors to make the front of their home pop. But if you’re worried that a bright yellow or red might be too much for your tastes, several paint manufacturers offer free online color visualization tools. With a few clicks, you can see how any hue will look next to the color of your home’s siding and trim.Other ways to perk-up your front door include new handles and locksets. A quick visit to, or other no-cost to access online resources will show you the range of creative options available.For many homeowners, the ultimate way to perk-up their front entry is by replacing the door. “Not only does replacing your front entry door kick up your curb appeal, it’s a solid investment with a decent payback,” explains home improvement journalist Karin Beuerlein on A new door provides opportunities to personalize the home’s entry to best suit your current tastes. Whether it’s a major style change like a switch fromMore homeowners are experimenting with bold primary colors on their doors to make the front of their home pop.Colonial to contemporary, a different type of decorative glass or your favorite wood species, manufacturers offer many ways to make a front door truly your own.As with paint, many homeowners find it difficult to picture how different door styles would look on their homes. “To make the process of finding a door simple and fun, we’ve created a range of free online design tools,” notes Brad Loveless, product development and marketing manager for Simpson Door Company. “Called Doormagination, these tools include a ‘test drive,’ in which you can upload a photo of your home and compare different door designs.” Such tools allow people to quickly explore the range of options and to see what their personalized door will look like before they order it.You don’t have to be a design guru to add curb appeal to your home. Paint and door manufacturers, even some local landscape companies, now offer fun and easy-to-use tools to create a “wow-worthy” home entry.

  • Don’t confine discussions about Gift Aid to the small print

    first_imgThe Charity Tax Group welcomed the report’s call for a simplification of the Gift Aid Declaration. Richard Bray, vice chair of the group, said:“The Gift Aid Working Group has seen early drafts of the revised model Gift Aid declaration and these show definite improvements, with a much shorter model envisaged and unnecessary references to Council Tax and VAT removed. It is vital that we create a Gift Aid Declaration that is easy for donors and charities to use and fit for the modern age.”  30 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Donors should be “primed” about Gift Aid early on in their recruitment process, rather than leaving the Gift Aid declaration to the small print, research commissioned by HM Treasury recommends.The research by TNS-BMRB ­– Gift Aid: Understanding Donor Behaviour – is one of the measures announced in the Budget this year to encourage more donors to use Gift Aid, being carried out by the Gift Aid Working Group. The National Audit Office estimates that there are up to £2.3bn of donations on which Gift Aid is not claimed.The main reasons for not signing up to Gift Aid identified by the 40 donors interviewed for the study were: It was an additional tax for the donor or charity It was a request from the charity to sign up to regular donations It added only around 5-10 per cent to donations, and was thus not worth claiming. Interviewees also reported a number of “practical barriers”, including the inconvenience of having to fill out a form and the “discomfort with sharing personal information or ‘signing up’ to something not fully understood”.The research says this behaviour can be “disrupted” by changing the way Gift Aid is presented:“By introducing Gift Aid early on in the donation, donors can be primed to pay more attention to it, viewing it as an integral part of their donation. Priming is also an opportunity to emphasise the benefits of Gift Aid to charities, by emphasising the significant financial benefit to charities overall, or relatable, concrete benefits to the charity.” Advertisement Don’t confine discussions about Gift Aid to the small print The format of the Gift Aid Declaration should also be shortened to appeal to donors, with the report recommending that “legal language” – which has deterred participants from claiming ­– may not be needed on the declaration itself. Especially in online declarations, this information could be provided in hover-overs or pop-ups.The report also suggested key messages charities should communicate to overcome the most common misunderstandings:The benefit to charity at no cost to the donorThe fact that eligibility is related to individual tax paid, rather than taxpaying or working statusThat the donor’s address is required to identify them as a taxpayerThe fact that donors must have paid enough tax to cover all Gift Aid donationsThat the declaration refers to the current tax year.

  • Justice for Mario Woods!

    first_imgSan Francisco — Ever since the Dec. 2 firing squad execution of 26-year-old Mario Woods in the San Francisco Bay View neighborhood by cops, the Black community and its supporters have been in the streets and at City Hall, disrupting meetings and blocking intersections.A newly formed organization, The Last 3 Percent Coalition, and Black Lives Matter Bay Area have worked to support Woods’ family in their struggle for justice. The very name, “The Last 3 Percent,” epitomizes the plight of San Francisco’s Black community, diminished by gentrification.Three now famous bystander videos graphically show Woods surrounded by officers and up against a wall when the firing began. Police claim Woods was carrying a knife.Left, Gwendolyn Woods, Mario Woods’ mother, and Elvira Nieto, Alex Nieto’s mother, hold hands during Black/Brown unity march.Photo: @4AlexNietoMost recently, protesters disrupted the inauguration ceremony of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee on Jan. 8. Starting with a rally on the steps of City Hall, the demonstrators then marched inside. Refusing to be herded into an isolated viewing room, they gathered on the second floor balcony, shouting “Fire [San Francisco Police Chief Greg] Suhr!” and “Justice for Mario Woods!” Cops in riot gear kept swooping in on the crowd, grabbing signs and any people they could call disruptive.On Jan. 6, there was a Solidarity Night march. This move to build Black/Brown solidarity combined the supporters of justice for Mario Woods with those of the Alex Nieto Coalition. It was held on the 50th anniversary of the 1966 Bayview “riots.”In the pouring rain, there were two marches. One, organized by The Last 3 Percent Coalition, originated in the Bay View, where Mario Woods was killed. The other, organized by the Alex Nieto Coalition, started in Bernal Heights. The two then marched towards each other for a convergence and culminating ceremony.Nieto was killed in a hail of 59 bullets by the San Francisco Police Department on March 21, 2014, when police responded to a 911 call about a “suspicious person.” Nieto, on his way to work as a security guard, was carrying his licensed taser and was far from anyone else when the police confronted and killed him.During a Dec. 24 press conference and rally at San Francisco City Hall, Clarence Thomas of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union Local 10 announced that the San Francisco Labor Council had unanimously passed a resolution calling for the prosecution of the cops who killed Mario Woods.Susan Soloman, executive vice-president of United Educators of San Francisco, said that her union had passed the same resolution. After the rally outside, they marched into City Hall to meet with Mayor Ed Lee. When told he wasn’t in, the crowd promised to come back another day.In a fiery speech during a police commission hearing on Dec. 9, Cat Brooks of the Anti Police-Terror Project dressed down Chief Suhr and told him, “You are inciting the rage of the people. … A new day has come. … It’s a movement sweeping this country and we are not going to stop until you stop killing us. … We will continue to shut it down, interrupt your business as usual. We’re going to take to the streets. We’re going to interrupt your election cycle. And I have news for you, Chief Suhr. We are going to shut it down until you resign or until all of you get the courage to fire him. And Oakland will be here! We’re bringing the East Bay!” ( thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

  • Palestine: Thousands protest on 40th Land Day

    first_imgThousands demonstrated in occupied Palestine and throughout the world on March 30, marking the 40th Land Day. The annual event commemorates the killing of six Palestinian citizens of Israel, who were protesting the Zionist state’s expropriation of more than 5,000 acres of land in 1976.Land Day 2014 in the central Gaza Strip’s Maghazi refugee camp.Photo: Joe CatronRepressing a general strike — the first mobilization by Palestinians on land seized by Israel in 1948 — the Zionist forces also wounded 100 people and detained hundreds more.Today these events are remembered as the start of the organized struggle by Palestinians against ethnic cleansing and land theft in the heart of the Zionist occupation.“We stand here today at the memorial of our six martyrs who were killed defending their land,” Mohamed Barakeh, chair of the Arab Higher Monitoring Committee, said during the wreath-laying ceremony at a commemorative monument in Sakhnin. “Khadija Shawahneh, Khader Khalaila, Khair Yassin, Mohsen Taha, Raafat al-Zuhiri and Raja Abu Raya, we will not forget you.”The committee, which coordinates political activities among Palestinian citizens, called for a general strike and protests against ongoing attempts to seize Palestinian land.“In 1976, demonstrators protested against the confiscation of 20,000 dunums [about 4,900 acres] of land, while today Israel has plans to confiscate 800,000 dunums [about 198,000 acres] in the Negev Desert,” Ayman Odeh, leader of the Hadash party and chairman of the Joint List of Palestinian factions, said in Sakhnin.Major demonstrations took place across the Negev and Galilee regions where Palestinian survivors of Zionist ethnic cleansing operations in 1948 maintain a strong presence. Palestinians also mobilized throughout the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Palestinian territories occupied by Zionist forces and subjected to military rule in 1967.North of Gaza City, hundreds marched toward a checkpoint in Beit Hanoun, calling for the right of return by Palestinian refugees who make up more than two-thirds of the Gaza Strip population.“Palestinians are entitled to their land and they will give up not one inch,” Hamas leader Yahia Moussa told the crowd.Near Ramallah, university students cut through a section of the infamous “Apartheid Wall,” hoisting a Palestinian flag over expropriated farmlands before Zionist forces repelled them with tear gas, rubber-coated steel bullets and concussion grenades.Occupation troops also fired tear gas at demonstrators in Nablus and outside Ofer prison, which holds Palestinian political prisoners southwest of Ramallah.An annual Land Day report by Adalah: The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel described the racist allocation of land by the Israeli state, as well as Zionist “national institutions” like the Jewish National Fund. “In 2015, Arab towns in Israel received only 4.6% of new housing units and only 2.5% of reduced-cost housing units,” despite Palestinians comprising 20 percent of the population and its poorest sector, with more than half the population in poverty, the report found.In the United States, the National Lawyers Guild filed a complaint to the Internal Revenue Service against the tax-exempt status enjoyed by the JNF, which manages land ethnically cleansed of Palestinians for the exclusive benefit of Jews.“For nearly 70 years Palestinians have been resisting Israel’s continued theft of our land,” said Nick Sous of the U.S. Palestinian Community Network, part of a coalition of Palestinian and solidarity groups supporting the complaint. “So many Palestinians have been directly impacted by Israel’s stealing their land with the support of the JNF and it is shameful that the IRS actually awards people who donate to support these illegal actions by allowing them to get a tax write-off.”USPCN called on its allies to sign a petition at and consider further actions in support of the campaign.Catron is a member of Al-Awda New York: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition and an organizer with Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
