Three changes for England as Ben Youngs comes in to face Italy

By on June 23, 2021

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS It may be Valentine’s Day on Sunday, but England coach Eddie Jones won’t be giving Italy any presents in Rome, naming a strong side to face the Azzurri with three changes from last week’s win over Scotland.Most notable among the changes is the promotion to the starting XV of scrum-half Ben Youngs (Leicester), who gets the nod ahead of Harlequins’ Danny Care.The only other changes to the starting line-up come in the pack, with Mako Vunipola replacing Joe Marler at loosehead and Courtney Lawes proving his fitness to be named ahead of Joe Launchbury in the second-row.Launchbury drops to the bench, where he is joined by Saracens prodigy Maro Itoje, who travelled to Murrayfield last week but not as part of the matchday squad.Paul Hill (Northampton) is the other uncapped bench player, having been unused against Scotland on Saturday. “We’ve made a few changes to the line up for Italy. I believe this is the strongest 23 to go to Rome and get the performance and result we want.” Jones said. “Mako, Ben and Courtney have been pushing hard for selection during training, but they also fit the game plan we want to implement against Italy. Danny, Joe Marler and Joe Launchbury will all have a significant roles to play to finish the game.”“It has been an intense week of training and I am pleased with how the group have responded to some of the things we’ve asked them to do. Maro has consistently impressed me this week and, together with his excellent club form, has deserved his call up to the match day squad.”England team to face Italy on Sunday Ben Youngs passes the ball during the England training session held at Pennyhill Park on February 4, 2016 in Bagshot, England.

When important things are at stake, when the lives of God’s children, and the life of the world in many respects is at stake. Even as I speak, protestors march through our streets, protesting the way we have been. Protesting for the way we could be. Black Lives Matter, protesting in our city streets that we might learn to live the ways of justice, and mercy that reflects the heart of God’s love. And even as I speak, this month of June is Pride Month when our LGBTQ siblings remember and recall, and continue their struggle for equality and mutual respect, and human dignity in our society, in our church and throughout the world.And even as I speak, the COVID-19 pandemic continues in strange and unanticipated ways, but it continues. This is the month of June. These are some hard times. Hard times for all, but really hard times for so many. Sometimes it’s helpful to go back and look how others navigated hard times. I went and picked up a small book. There’s a book of sermons by Harry Emerson Fosdick. It was published in the mid 1940s, in 1944 I believe. It was a collection of sermons that he preached as the pastor of Riverside Church in New York City, during the Second World War when the entire world was in an apocalyptic struggle between good and evil. One of the sermons he titled, “In such a time as this, no dry-as-dust religion will do.”He pleaded with people of God to draw closer to God for strength and energy. To live lives of love, of faith, of hope. In that same period of time, he composed the hymn that’s found in many of our hymnals, and I would offer it for us this week in this month of June.God of grace and God of glory,on thy people pour thy power;crown thy ancient churches’ story,bring her bud to glorious flower.Grant us wisdom, grant us couragefor the facing of this hour . . .Save us from weak resignationto the evils we deplore;let the gift of thy salvationbe our glory evermore.Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,serving thee whom we adore.(Harry Emerson Fosdick, 1930)God love you. God bless you. May God hold us all in those Almighty hands of love.Reference: “No Dry as Dust Religion Will Do,” A Great Time to Be Alive: Sermons on Christianity in War Time, Harpers & Brothers, 1944Hábitos de gracia, 16 de junio de 2020: una invitación para ti, del obispo primado CurryJune 16, 2020Mientras aprendemos a ajustar nuestras vidas dada la realidad del coronavirus y atendemos la solicitud de hacer nuestra parte para frenar su propagación practicando el distanciamiento social, les invito a que se unan a mí cada semana para dedicar un momento a cultivar un «hábito de gracia».  Una nueva meditación se  publicará todas las semanas. Estas meditaciones pueden verse en cualquier momento haciendo clic aquí.16 de junio de 2020: En este mes de junioDurante este mes de junio, nos encontramos en medio de grandes luchas titánicas, privaciones y dificultades. Cuando están en juego cosas importantes, cuando están en juego la vida de los hijos de Dios y la vida del mundo en muchos aspectos. Mientras hablo, los manifestantes marchan por nuestras calles, protestando por la manera en que hemos sido. Protestando por la forma en que podríamos ser. Las vidas de los negros son importantes [Black Lives Matter], protestando en las calles de nuestras ciudades para que podamos aprender a vivir los caminos de justicia y de misericordia que refleja el corazón del amor de Dios. Y mientras hablo, en este mes de junio, es el Mes del Orgullo [Homosexual] cuando nuestros hermanos LGBTQ recuerdan y conmemoran, y continúan su lucha por la igualdad y el respeto mutuo y la dignidad humana en nuestra sociedad, en nuestra Iglesia y en todo el mundo.Y mientras hablo, la pandemia del COVID-19 continúa de manera extraña e imprevista, pero continúa. Este es el mes de junio. Estos son tiempos difíciles. Tiempos difíciles para todos, pero realmente tiempos difíciles para tantas personas. A veces resulta útil volver atrás y ver cómo otros se enfrentaron a tiempos difíciles. Yo fui y tomé un librito. Un libro de sermones de Harry Emerson Fosdick. Se publicó a mediados de los años cuarenta, creo que en 1944. Era una selección de sermones que él predicó como pastor de la Iglesia de Riverside en Nueva York, durante la segunda guerra mundial, cuando el mundo entero estaba en medio de un conflicto apocalíptico entre el bien y el mal. Él tituló uno de sus sermones: “En un tiempo como éste, ninguna religión tan seca como el polvo servirá”.Le suplicó al pueblo de Dios que se acercara a Dios para obtener fuerza y ​​energía. Para vivir vidas de amor, de fe, de esperanza. En ese mismo período de tiempo, él compuso el himno que se encuentra en muchos de nuestros himnarios, y que querría ofrecérselos esta semana, en este mes de junio.Dios de gracia, Dios de Gloria,danos presto tu poder;a tu antigua Iglesia adornacon un nuevo florecer.Danos luz y valentíaen la hora del deber . . .Líbranos de resignarnos,imparciales, frente al mal;sea nuestro anhelo santoreflejar tu eterno ideal.Danos luz y valentíapara hacer tu voluntad.(Harry Emerson Fosdick, 1930, trad. de Federico José Pagura)Dios les ama. Dios les bendiga. Que Dios nos sostenga a todos nosotros en esas todopoderosas manos de amor.Referencia: “No Dry as Dust Religion Will Do,” A Great Time to Be Alive: Sermons on Christianity in War Time, Harpers & Brothers, 1944 Rector Bath, NC Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Tampa, FL Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Albany, NY In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Washington, DC Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Featured Events Habits of Grace: In this month of June Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

House in Sukumo / Container Design

Located in Sukumo city, Kochi Prefecture. This House planed in a calm residential area on a small hill. The clients wanted a bright and open house.They like good designed things, and they request to keep value of building materials. Also, they wanted a workspace in the house based on their plan that the client’s wife will work at home in the future.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaSave this picture!© Eiji TomitaAt first, typhoons frequently occur around this area, so we needed to take that into account beforehand on this designing.I placed a courtyard in the house to make it open and windows larger.Because they want to use any space for works and sometimes hold a home party, we planned that the first floor where everyone can easily come like an outdoor space and the second floor for their private space.I placed two rooms that are the same size on the both sides of the courtyard on each floor. I didn’t set up a specific usage of these rooms and plannned that these rooms can respond diversely even if the way of use will be changed in the future.However, the open space works against wind and rain.So I opened a square aperture in the roof of the courtyard to let wind escape well.The wind hitting the building is drawn into the courtyard by the chimney effect, and passes through to the upper part of the building.And I slanted the outer wall of the south side of the second floor. This wall like a roof also expected to have effect of letting the wind blowing from the south escape.It protrudes up to 1.8 meters from the first floor and works as a roof over the open space of the first floor. And the space became a place to take shelter from the rain like the ‘engawa’ which is a one of traditional style of Japanese house.Save this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!SectionsFirst floor is like an outdoor space, so I chosen natural stones for the finishing material of the floor. And also, I chosen wood for the wall and ceiling.Second floor is a private space for the client’s family, so I think that cedar boards are suitable for the finishing material of the floor and expect to be brought warmth to the house.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaBy using different materials for the first floor and the second floor, some changes occur in daily life. Additionally, we set up an athletic net as a fall prevention measure in the upper part of the courtyard. The courtyard which is placed for getting an open space also unable to get further connection in the spaces.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaI hope that the four spaces and the courtyard enrich their daily life, and they live peacefully. Also, we believe this house can be a place to explore various possibilities for the family in the future.Save this picture!© Eiji TomitaProject gallerySee allShow lessMuseum of Contemporary Art of Yong Qing Mansion / gadSelected ProjectsThe Open Architectural and Urban CompetitionIdeas Share Architects: Container Design Area Area of this architecture project Area:  106 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/874595/house-in-sukumo-container-design Clipboard CopyAbout this officeContainer DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSukumoJapanPublished on June 29, 2017Cite: “House in Sukumo / Container Design” 28 Jun 2017.

On the picket line

By on June 15, 2021

first_imgTarget workers win union representationPharmacy workers at a Brooklyn, N.Y., Target store have made history with the first ever successful union drive in the company’s more than 100-year history. On Sept. 8, the workers voted 7 to 2 in favor of joining the Food and Commercial Workers. Their major concern was job security, given CVS Health’s pending acquisition of Target’s pharmacy operations. “We were all happy with our jobs at Target. … It’s more that we didn’t like being thrown into uncertainty,” said a worker quoted anonymously. (nasdaq.com, Sept. 16)This union drive is especially significant due to Target’s notorious union-busting scare tactics, including anti-union propaganda videos that all new employees are forced to watch. (Gawker.com, March 19, 2014) By proving that it’s possible to organize in even the most anti-union workplaces, these workers have set the stage for more Target and other low-wage workers to win union representation.Capitol service workers strike against low wagesOn Sept. 22, just two days before Pope Francis’ speech before the U.S. Congress, 1,000 federal service workers walked off the job to demand fair wages and a union. Organized by “Good Jobs Nation,” the workers who cook, clean and perform other essential services in the Capitol and other federal buildings struck for 24 hours, calling on Pope Francis to join their cause. ”We want you to know that even though we serve the wealthy and the powerful in the Congress, we earn so little that we live in utter poverty,” read the workers’ open letter to the pope. (TheHill.com, Sept. 22)Although President Obama signed an executive order raising the minimum wage for federal contract workers to $10.10 in February 2014, workers say it isn’t enough. This wage — $21,000 yearly — still falls several thousand dollars short of the federal poverty line at $24,250 for a family of four. (TheNation.com, Sept. 22)UFW wins EPA pesticide worker protectionsOn Sept. 28, United Farm Workers celebrated the 50th anniversary of its founding in the fields of California with an announcement of long-fought-for rules protecting farmworkers nationwide from pesticide poisoning. In Washington, D.C., UFW President Arturo Rodriguez applauded the new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules that end decades of exclusion of farmworkers from when labor laws were first enacted in the 1930s. In those days, most farmworkers were African Americans in the South or Mexican and Filipino immigrants or Mexican Americans in California and Washington state.The EPA estimates that 10,000 to 20,000 physician-diagnosed pesticide poisonings occur each year among about 2 million farmworkers. Over the years, farmworkers have fought for and won regulations in individual contracts against pesticides in Washington state, Texas and California. The first was with a California grape grower in 1967. The new EPA rule requires all pesticide applicators to be at least 18 years old, upgrades pesticide training requirements, enacts whistleblower protections and allows improved access to important health records.“The same rules that have protected other American workers from dangerous cancer and birth-defect causing pesticides are finally going to protect farmworkers,” noted Rodriguez. “Our families and communities will now be able to work with reassurance that [their] work … will not unknowingly harm themselves or their families. It’s been a long time coming.”Peanut CEO gets 28-year jail sentence for fraudOn Sept. 22, Stewart Parnell, CEO of the Peanut Corporation of America, was sentenced to 28 years in jail for fraud and deliberately shipping tainted food. Nine people died and over 700 others became ill during a national outbreak of salmonella poisoning in 2008-2009 traced to the Georgia factory. Calling this sentencing “groundbreaking” and “a victory for consumers,” food safety lawyer Bill Marler said, “This sentence is going to send a stiff, cold wind through board rooms across the U.S.” (CNN.com, Sept. 22) If only it would put people before profits!In a more typical scenario, corporate giant General Motors got a slap on the wrist on Sept. 16: a $900 million fine and a three-year deferred prosecution agreement after its Cobalts and Saturn Ions led to 124 deaths and 275 injuries between 2003 and 2008. New York Times columnist Joe Nocera advocated on Sept. 26 for prosecution for corporate executives as “the most powerful deterrent imaginable.” Under capitalism at a dead end? Not likely.

Syria poison gas? Pretext for U.S. military attack

By on

first_imgThis goes all the way back to the sinking of the battleship Maine in 1898, which was used to justify the Spanish-American war. A U.S. Navy inquiry in 1974 commissioned by Admiral Hyman Rickover concluded that the Maine sunk, not because of a Spanish mine, but because munitions stored aboard caught fire and exploded.U.S. military corporations have an enormous stake in continued war. But it goes wider than that. The big imperialist corporations and banks fear the defeat of all U.S. strategic plans for the region. So once again military, corporate and media forces are dragging out the same playbook they have used time and again to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan, south Korea, Syria and the more than 1,000 U.S. military bases around the world.It is especially ominous that Russia was immediately blamed, along with Syria. Russian and Iranian assistance to Syria has helped frustrate U.S. plans for the overthrow of the Syrian government. In their constant drumbeat of nonstop demonization, U.S. opinion molders don’t even bother to present facts or motivation when making charges against Russian President Putin.They also paint a dire picture that a U.S. military pullout from the region would lead to chaos and benefit Russia, Iran or China, while also leading to a resurgence of the Islamic State group in Syria. What the war planners really oppose is a unified, sovereign Syrian state.Progressive forces opposed to endless U.S. wars must confront these criminal charges against Syria and demand of the U.S. warmakers: “Hands off Syria!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this U.S. wars are based on lies and staged provocations. This is hardly news.Now comes the charge that on April 7 someone — the imperialists are saying it was the Syrian government, although there is no proof of that — killed dozens of Syrians with a poison gas attack on the town of Douma, which had only recently been liberated from anti-government forces.The brutal seven-year war against Syria had been winding down after the failure of every effort by U.S. imperialism to overturn the Syrian government.The last groups of reactionary, Saudi-backed military units were defeated this month. They had relentlessly shelled the civilian population of Damascus, the Syrian capital, for years. Thousands of these fighters have finally surrendered and were forced out of the hills of East Ghouta province overlooking Damascus. They are due to be bused out of the area to Idlib, a rebel-held area in the far north of Syria.The Syrian government has also established humanitarian corridors enabling more than 150,000 civilians to be evacuated by its forces.The town of Douma, where the supposed gas attack took place, was the last to be liberated. The Army of Islam or Jaysh al-Islam had agreed to an evacuation.  The Syrian Arab Air Force had destroyed more than 300 positions of Jaysh al-Islam in the Douma district, including its main headquarters, communication networks and ammunition depots, over the last 24 hours before the supposed gas attack.Syria has no motiveThe idea that the Syrian government would choose this moment of victory to suddenly unleash a gas attack is incredible and ridiculous. But it is a charge that serves as an excuse for the U.S. and NATO to renew their bombing, especially since only a week earlier Trump had talked about getting the U.S. out of Syria.The gas attack, which is said to have killed at least 42 people, was top-of-the-news, front-page coverage in the U.S. media along with Trump’s tweets. While the charge that Syria did it was met with contempt and ridicule throughout most of the world, NATO members France and Britain dutifully chimed in with immediate threats to bomb Syria.The Israeli regime beat them to it and immediately seized the opportunity to attack Syria. Two Israeli F-15 fighters fired missiles into Syria’s Tiyas Military Airbase in Homs province before dawn on April 9.It is beyond belief to accept that Israel — whose troops have killed 28 unarmed Palestinian civilians and injured more than 1,500 over the past two weeks, in addition to the thousands it has killed in its past bombings of Gaza — was attacking Syria over the deaths of civilians.Charges with no proofThe imperialists’ blatant assertion of Syrian guilt is not only totally unfounded, it is unprovable and totally implausible.Syria has repeatedly denied allegations of chemical weapons use, underscoring that it has no weapons of mass destruction. This was confirmed by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.The Syrian Foreign Ministry points out that similar allegations emerge every time the Syrian Army makes advances in its fight against terrorist groups.Last year on April 7, the Pentagon, without waiting for any evidence, attacked Syria’s Shuaryat Air Force base with 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles, supposedly in response to chemical weapons being used at Khan Shikhoun, a town in southwestern Syria. The sudden attack, orchestrated with immediate photos and a coordinated campaign of war propaganda by a compliant media, reached new heights.Protecting civilians is the claim made by the imperialists to justify their massive bombings, destabilizations campaigns and starvation sanctions — resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of civilians.Wider war threatenedA wider war exploding from a confrontation in Syria is a growing danger. Most dangerous right now is that it coincides with the installation of extreme right-wing war hawk John Bolton as Trump’s new national security advisor.When the U.S. ruling class wants a war, the corporate media fall into line. Whether it was the phony claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction in 2002, which U.S. officials knew to be a lie, or the phony “attack” by Vietnamese PT boats on a U.S. warship in the Gulf of Tonkin in 1964, the U.S. media have repeated the government’s lies to justify its wars.last_img read more

The bench has issued notice in these petitions and adjourned the hearing for four weeks.Dr AM Singhvi, appearing for the Consortium, had submitted yesterday that since the Universities have received nearly 5000 applications for the one-year LLM courses advertised in January, a status quo order was necessary as the sudden notification of the new Rules of the BCI will cause immense hardship to students.The main arguments of Singhvi were :The Advocates Act, 1961, gives power to the Bar Council of India only to regulate legal education in so far as it relates to qualifications for enrollment for practice of law. LLM is not a qualification for enrollment.Only UGC has power to regulate LLM courses.One year LLM is the standard across the globe in all reputed international universities.One year  LLM was started in India on the basis of recommendations of the National Knowledge Commission in 2012.The BCI did not consult a single Law University before issuing the new Rules.The bench was considering the challenge against the BCI Legal Education (Post Graduate, Doctoral, Executive, Vocational, Clinical and other Continuing Education) Rules, 2020 (Rules) to the extent they seek to abolish the one year LLM program.It was on January 4 that the BCI published these Rules, which will come into force when they are notified.The new rules provides that the post-graduate course in law leading to Master degree, in short, LL.M. has to be of two years’ duration spreading over four semesters. Further, LL.M. course is restricted to only graduates in law. The current one year LLM course will remain in operative and valid until the Academic Session in which these Regulations are notified Next Storylast_img read more
