The SaintsSuper subFinally, after 17 defeats (some of them clutched agonisingly at the last minute from the jaws of victory) Worcester Warriors claimed their first Aviva Premiership win of the season, and the unlikely hero was a replacement centre making only his fourth league appearance.With 69 minutes on the clock in the basement battle at Newcastle Falcons, the score was 12-12. Then Andy Symons, all 6ft 5in and 16st 5lb of him, lit up the game with a charging run from just inside the Falcons’ half. When he was stopped a couple of metres from the line on the left, Josh Drauniniu was on hand to take the pass and dive in for the try in the corner and this time the Warriors hung on for a 17-12 victory.Worcester are still nine points adrift of Newcastle at the bottom of the table with four games to play and as they have to travel away to Saracens and Bath their hopes of survival are still slim. But as their director of rugby Dean Ryan said: “We knew if we didn’t win here today it was gone. This breathes a little bit of life into us. I am really pleased the group have got a reward.”In the Niko of timeGlasgow Warriors were 6-9 down at home to the Ospreys with five minutes on the clock, in a game they needed to win to keep up the pressure in their hunt for a top-four spot in the RaboDirect Pro 12.Niko Matawalu broke from his own half and put a great kick through which Tommy Seymour chased. The Scotland wing did superbly to bravely beat Dan Biggar to the touchdown and score the try, but Duncan Weir missed the conversion, so the Warriors had some nail-biting to do at just 11-9 ahead.They thought they had extended that lead when Finn Russell touched down a couple of minutes later but the try was disallowed and the Ospreys went looking for the winning score. The Welsh visitors patiently created a drop-goal chance for Biggar, but who was there to charge it down and save the game – Matawalu.The win leaves the Warriors in fifth spot, just one point behind the Ospreys but with two games in hand, so with every chance of moving up into the play-off places.Rees is the wordThe British Isles rugby family held its breath and hoped for the best when Wales and Lions hooker Matthew Rees announced he was being treated for testicular cancer last October. But on Saturday the Cardiff Blues hooker returned to action and helped inspire his team-mates to a 28-23 victory over Ulster.Inspiration: Rees (left) is back in actionThe Blues’ performance was an utter transformation from last weekend’s lame 34-9 defeat by the Ospreys. All-action Josh Navidi was man of the match, the pack were magnificent and Alex Cuthbert deserves a mention for a magical back-handed pass to set Robin Copeland on his way to a great try.Caretaker coach Dale McIntosh said his team had done a lot of soul-searching after the loss to the Ospreys and talking about Rees he summed up the feelings of many, saying: “The guy is an icon. We look at him and he’s an example to us all. He came out there and looked like he hadn’t been away from the game.”Rees himself thanked everyone for their amazing support through his illness and Martyn Williams, a former team-mate for the Blues and Wales, added: “His positive mindset has been unbelievable – an absolute inspiration to everybody.” TAGS: Cardiff BluesGlasgow WarriorsHighlightWorcester Warriors Try time: Drauniniu is congratulated by team-mates including Symons (23) Suni side upEvery international team wants to go to the World Cup finals and two tries in quick succession from the Suniula brothers, Shalom and Andrew, ensured that the USA will be there in 2015.Playing over two legs for the right to take up a place in Pool B at the tournament in England, the USA Eagles and Uruguay were locked together at 27-27 after the first leg.Uruguay took a 13-3 half-time lead in the second game and looked to be firmly in the driving seat as the USA made a lot of errors, but they fought back after the break and the Suniulas struck in the last 15 minutes to take their team to a 32-13 win on the day and a 59-40 triumph on aggregate.The SinnersKicking himselfHe will doubtless enjoy many moments in his career when he is the match-winning hero, but like all goal-kickers, George Ford is also sometimes cast as the villain after missing a crucial kick and that was the case this weekend. In wet conditions which made kicking difficult, the young Bath fly-half effectively cost his team the game against Sale Sharks when he missed a conversion and two drop-goal attempts in the last five minutes, with Bath trailing 11-12. It meant the Sharks pulled up to within four points of Bath in the race for fourth spot in the Aviva Premiership, so leaving the west-country side with work to do to ensure they don’t blow their playoff chances.In a tangle: Ben Foden and the Tigers physioTiger’s tripLeicester became the first team to beat Northampton at Franklins Gardens in the Premiership this season, sneaking home 22-16 in a game that had its share of controversy.There was talk of Dylan Hartley biting Tom Youngs, although the Northampton player was not punished at the time and is not being cited, then Leicester had two players sent to the sin-bin – something which never goes down well with Tigers’ boss Richard Cockerill.The final talking point came right at the death when Manu Tuilagi took the ball into touch in the right-hand corner, close to his own goal line, and Ben Foden’s attempts to take a quick lineout to steal a potentially winning score at the death were thwarted by a Leicester physio, who stumbled over the ball in touch and therefore made a quick throw-in impossible.Did the physio kick the ball deliberately? Should he had been a little further away from play, rather than running along beside it? Should referee Wayne Barnes have used some discretion and allowed the lineout to be taken despite the fact time was up? The answers to all three questions are debatable, and there’s no guarantee that Northampton would have scored and converted a try if play had continued – although they were facing only 13 men.

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael Curry and Bishop J. Jon Bruno of the Diocese of Los Angeles visited the site of the San Bernardino, California, shootings on Dec. 4 and offered this video statement. December 15, 2015 at 9:21 am Hello, Doug!Arguably, in military lingo, the root of the matter with regard to defeating a combatant is the combatant’s “center of gravity” (COG), which is more difficult to determine in asymmetrical warfare. There are voices that support searching for the COG within the context of non-state combatants, asymmetrical global war, and COG. In conventional warfare you take the land and leadership and you win because that often is the COG in conventional warfare, which can be addressed with guns. You pointed out FBI’s comment that this is caused by more than guns, and you also raised the issue of ideology. It seems plausible to suggest that ISIS’s COG is contempt for human beings because of the atrocities it commits in its recruitment propaganda and its use of the West’s expressions of contempt to expand and continue the fight. This COG also suggests the type of spiritual warfare that has to be fought, that is, a war on contempt. While we defend ourselves we have to loudly argue that all human beings have value and ought not be contemned. God’s people win if we can undermine contempt in the ideological space that the combatants have gained. God’s people? Christian, Muslims, Jews, all who seek the unity of God are God’s people. This requires exposing Satan’s tactics in his attempts to divide God’s people.

Islam is not monolithic. It experienced no centralization and in fact has many schools of thought (most of whom strive against each other and even do violence to each other). Islam experienced no Reformation, nor an Enlightenment. Finding “true Islam” in preference to “radical jihadist Islam” is no easy task. Yes, there are moderate Muslims, but they would quite often not be tolerated in countries with a Muslim majority and Muslim theocracy. In the country of Islam’s greatest shrine (Saudi Arabia) the Sharia Law is not only punitive, but abhorrent to anything that Christians should tolerate. The roads leading to Mecca even instruct non-Muslims to come no farther, to exit immediately, because non-Muslims are not worthy to approach and participate. Yes, there are moderate Muslims, but their coreligionists would have quite a lot to say about that….and it would not go well. Looking at the Muslim-majority nations around the globe it’s a pretty safe bet that these would represent “true Islam”. Anyone with working eyes and ears will know in an instant that there are practices and values in the laws of those nations that will not and cannot be reconciled with Western democracy nor a people practicing Christian toleration. If something is being twisted there sure are a lot of people twisting.

At the same time, can we not all work together on getting sensible and life-saving gun laws and health laws regarding mental problems passed in our great U.S.A??? Cathedral Dean Boise, ID December 8, 2015 at 5:32 pm Dr. Gerard — Thank-you for being concerned about my energy for acts of mercy and compassion. Judging me without knowing me, however, you aren’t aware of my life’s work and the place that mercy and compassion hold. Notwithstanding, the subject at hand remains the misplaced narrative about guns in this act of planned terrorism. I am disappointed that some of our Church’s leadership rely on talking points that have little to do with the realities that even the media are recognizing. “Good” always comes by focusing on the root of the matter rather than distracted narratives of what one wants the issue to be. The issue is radical jihadist terror by ISIS who has become embedded among us. It was far overdue, but in President Obama’s Tuesday speech he finally stopped referring to the Fort Hood massacre as “workplace violence” and instead called it by its name: terrorism. Unfortunately, Farook and Mailk paid no attention to gun restrictions (and all their revisions), laws prohibiting making bombs, or any other law that discourages murder or terrorism. They had the backing of money from overseas and were gearing up for much worse. The FBI speaks for me and many other Americans when they focus attention on this carnage as being caused by something significantly more than a gun. December 8, 2015 at 10:20 am Mr. Desper, I have followed your voluminous comments and find you to be a person of great passion. The world would be better served if you devoted your considerable energy to acts of mercy and compassion instead of harsh “instruction” and criticism. It is highly likely that no good comes of your words. the rev charles h. morris, d. min. says: December 5, 2015 at 10:54 am CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post, and nearly every major media outlet have listened to the FBI and local San Bernardino officials and called this despicable act what it was: ISIS Terrorism. Farook and Malik targeted their friends and co-workers in an act of religious-motivated terror. Malik pledged her loyalty to the ISIS caliphate. Their home was a bomb factory and the arsenal they were accumulating was appalling. They were planning more acts of terror. These realities move past any misplaced narrative of gun violence into the stark conclusion that there are not just “a few” religious radicals out there. Farook and Malik used the Koran’s instruction to befriend their adversaries in order to deceive them. Research “Taqiyya” (holy lying). It was used with heinous accuracy as this radicalized couple murdered their friends and co-workers, some of whom had just given them a baby shower. No, this isn’t about guns and violence. It is its own reality of ideological warfare that some law-enforcement officials are calling our “new normal”. Until we name it, we will not defeat it.

Sure, religion does enter the picture here, in motivation, but it is twisted, false religion and not true Islam. Fundamentalists can foul up the best of religions for their own political or demonic, divisive purposes, as they sometimes do in Christianity, with the Bible. I have supported sensible gun control–the Brady organization and prior to that Handgun Control, Inc. I have marched with many poor, including widows of slain young black men, and in violent areas of St. Louis, for years, several decades ago. Surely the ease of obtaining such terrible firearms and magazines, etc., that the two used in San Bernardino, is an indication of our sore lack of good federal gun control laws. Some 40 % of guns, those sold especially at gun shows, are sold without any background checks whatsoever. If Congress stays in the grip of the NRA and gun manufacturers, we will continue this unconscionable slaughter of the innocents in our great land. Better access to good mental health care is also a tremendous need. We need to fight the good fight with all our might on several fronts at once.

Focus on Florida:Tallahassee treading lightly on controversial topicBy William Patrick of Watchdog.org Ban fracking, for the children. Mama Mia January 25, 2017 at 9:44 pm William Patrick is a Florida reporter for Watchdog.org. His work has been featured on Fox News and the Drudge Report, among other national sites. He’s also been cited and re-posted by numerous statewide news organizations. UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Fracking is very dangerous and is a great threat to our underground water supply. There are numerous horror stories about the process, if you take the time to research it. Sounds like Sen. Dana Young (R) the sponsor of this bill, is a winner on this issue, for the people of Florida! Glad to see the bi-partisan effort of those working together in Tallahassee for the good of our treasured natural resources. Hope the bill passes! Reply Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom That was the emotional appeal made by several state lawmakers at the Capitol Rotunda on Wednesday, where a bipartisan coalition of elected officials gathered to announce newly filed legislation that, if successful, would abolish the oil and natural gas extraction technique throughout the state.Flanked by legislators from both chambers, Sen. Dana Young, R-Tampa, the bill’s sponsor, began her remarks by explaining the legislation is “concise and straightforward,” and “bans fracking of all types in Florida.”“I have filed this bill for my children and for all the current and future generations of Floridians who I believe deserve to have this same opportunity,” Young added while touting the state’s environment.Currently, there is no fracking in Florida due to a two-year moratorium enacted by a previous legislature. Concerns about the state’s porous limestone geology led to the temporary ban.Fracking involves injecting liquid compounds at high pressure into underground rock, which environmentalists say is extremely hazardous. The innovative technology has revolutionized the country’s energy industry over the past decade, bringing jobs and economic growth to participating states.Curiously, Young voted in favor of a pro-fracking bill last year although it ultimately died in an appropriations committee.But the Tampa legislator explained that Wednesday was a “new day.”“I’d like for all of you to stop focusing on the past,” she said.Watchdog photo/William PatrickBAN: Newly filed legislation by state Sen. Dana Young would abolish fracking in Florida.Part of Young’s recent past includes being elected to the state Senate. Young previously served in the Florida House for three terms and was the House majority leader last year. There, her leadership role included steering legislative strategies and assembling votes.That was then and this is now, said Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater, a senior statesman also hailing from the Tampa Bay area.“We know the education that occurs when you move from the House to the Senate,” Latvala said.The jab was aimed at the more conservative House.“I was part of the group that took that bill down last year,” Latvala boasted.House leadership was noticeably absent from the handful of lawmakers comprising the new anti-fracking coalition. The highest ranking House member was Democratic Minority Leader Janet Cruz, also from Tampa.Cruz singled out her two interns during her remarks and said she owed them, their children and her grandchildren safe drinking water.Rep. Keith Perry, R-Orlando, evoked the Founding Fathers and said the anti-fracking bill continues their commitment to “posterity.”Sen. Gary Farmer, a South Florida Democrat, added, “The time has finally come to end this dangerous practice.”When asked if she supports fracking in other states, Young deflected and said she respected the “sovereignty” of each state to make its own decision.Intrastate regional sovereignty, however, is off-the-table.The Florida panhandle is more conducive to fracking than the limestone-based peninsula, and oil drilling is already a major economic industry in the northwest part of the state. Improving it through fracking technology would be impossible if the bill passes.The event concluded with a shot at conservative House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land O’Lakes, who’s made headlines taking on what he’s called “Gucci-wearing lobbyists.”“Perhaps the Gucci-wearing lobbyists can convince Speaker Corcoran to oppose this legislation, but I doubt it,” one lawmaker said.Moments later, Latvala could be heard teasing about how Gucci-wearing “trial lawyers” might convince Corcoran to support the bill — to raucous approval from his colleagues.The state legislative session starts March 7.Without buy-in from the House, Corcoran could have the last laugh.

Attendees dressed in elaborate Halloween costumes, played games, “trunk or treated,” and took selfies with Super Frog. There were also bounce houses, face painting, Kona Ice, and a demonstration by the Fort Worth Police Department.The festival was created by members of the South Hills Christian Church and South Hills Elementary School as a safe place to celebrate Halloween within the community.Senior Minister of SHCC, Dottie Cook, said the festival initially began when the elementary school was unable to have a carnival due to construction on their playground.“They couldn’t have a carnival, so we said how about a street party between the school and the church,” Cook said.The festival lined up with the church’s new initiative, Fifth Sunday Service.“We had begun the practice of once a quarter, in months that have five Sundays, to use that last Sunday as a day to be at service in our community,” said Cook. “We do a variety of things. It just worked perfectly that for the first Fall Festival, Halloween fell on a fifth Sunday.”Don Tatlock, the community minister of SHCC, was in charge of this year’s planning committee. The committee included SHE staff, SHE PTA, and McKinney Bible Church members.“With a close partnership and relationship with SHE and SHE PTA, the festival is a way for the community to visit with SHE teachers and administrators in a fun environment,” said Tatlock. “It is also an opportunity to fundraise for activities by selling food and beverages.”SHCC Media Coordinator, Nathaniel Cook, said the event was just one of the ways that SHCC lives out its mission statement of having a strong commitment to the community.“When we put on an event or do mission work we understand and celebrate that not everyone who participates is going to believe or think the same way that we do, but the beauty in that is that we are all doing the work of the church together,” said Cook. “By working together with the people in the community, we are able to build a stronger relationship and do ministry together.”Cook said he has attended the festival for many years and loves being a part of the joy that comes with it.“The Fall Festival is an event for the community by the community where food, fun, and gathering together is what it’s all about,” said Cook. “Really, the Fall Festival is like a block party, and who doesn’t like a block party where, no matter what, you are welcome and loved.” Four best Christmas tree farms in the Fort Worth area Facebook Twitter Eatzi’s to replace Chilli’s at University Park Village Facebook Twitter + posts Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Danielle Johnston ReddIt Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday
Facebook Linkedin Advertisement AFTER a near year-long campaign, respite facilities in Limerick have been returned to their former capacity. Additional services are also being provided. Families affected by the cuts implemented last June, which resulted in a reduction of over 50% in respite services, received letters from Bawnmore this week confirming that the facility would be fully restored for the remainder of the year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Delighted with the development Sarah Hurley, a lead figure in the campaign to restore respite in Limerick, and in her late 70s, has cared for her son, John, 38 who suffers from Down Syndrome, at home all of his life. “The service had been cut to three days per month, but has now been restored to one week per month, along with an additional week during the summer,” she told the Limerick PostShe believes that a meeting held with the new Minister for Disability Kathleen Lynch in recent months was key to the restoration.“She realised how badly the service was needed and how much money parents who use respite are saving the State, by caring for their children at home.- I’m very relieved as the cuts should never have happened.“I’m optimistic that we will have full respite in the future and I’m looking forward to my first week-long break shortly and John is also looking forward to seeing all his friends at the house.”.Owen South has also been a key figure in the campaign for restoration of respite.“It will actually be better than it was, as there will be an extra week respite in the summer and emergency cover, which wasn’t there before, if a parent falls ill.“We were very optimistic after meeting with Minister Kathleen Lynch, that she would put her words into actions and the full funding appears to have been restored. It’s been a long campaign but we had to stick to it as this was a basic right that was taken away”.Both Ms. Hurley and Mr. South praised the efforts of deputies Kieran O’Donnell and Jan O’Sullivan, the local HSE and Norma Bagge of the Brothers of Charity.Deputy O’Sullivan expressed her delight at the outcome.“Over 60 families were directly affected by the recent cuts in funding, resulting in their campaigning publicly for funding and support.“The Brothers of Charity provide a first class service in Limerick, and the anger expressed by people all over the city was clearly evident following the closure of the respite service – it is wonderful to have it restored.” Twitter Print WhatsApp NewsLocal NewsFamilies welcome improved respite serviceBy admin – May 19, 2011 541 Email Previous articleGarda ombudsman to investigate Punches Cross collisionNext articleMoney scams rampant in Limerick admin
