Chris Ashton’s World Cup Verdict

first_imgChris Ashton is… the England and Northampton wing who scored four tries against ItalyIt was a very frustrating start to the England World Cup training camp for me. I was delighted to be named in the 45-man squad but knew I would start behind everyone else as I needed a long-overdue knee operation.I had a number of dates pencilled in for the operation, but once we lost the Aviva Premiership semi-final, I knew it would come within 48 hours of the Heineken Cup final.The surgeons took half the cartilage out from the inside of my left knee, so it meant I couldn’t take a full part in the rugby sessions for the first few weeks.I hateChris Ashton modelling the 2011 England Kitmissing even one training session so when the squad got to together at Pennyhill Park in June it was killing me standing on the sidelines watching them. I know it will be for my benefit in the long run but that hasn’t helped my level of frustration.It was made worse because of the way Martin Johnson laid down the law when we first arrived. He left us in no doubt – if it was needed – that none of us was guaranteed a place at the World Cup.He said if you don’t pay attention, if you don’t switch on now, you will fall between the cracks, and someone else will take your place. He said to go and get a taxi if you aren’t ready to work hard, which meant that the lads were using this in every training session, taking the mick. If someone did anything wrong someone was guaranteed to say, “You’re falling through the cracks” or “Go and get a taxi!”Johnno means every word of it and we all know – in all seriousness – if we drop off at training we’ll be on our way home. Why would anyone who knows Martin Johnson think he was joking! Or perhaps you’d like a digital version of the magazine delivered direct to your PC, MAC or Ipad? If so click here. For Back Issues Contact John Denton Services at 01733-385-170 visit I regard it as a massive honour to be involved in my first World Cup squad. I was glad to be there and be in the room with the rest of the lads. I think it’s good to have new faces around the squad and a lot of them are really young. Johnno actually called up seven wingers, which I thought was unusual, so in my position the competition is very high. A few of those, like Matt Banahan and James Simpson-Daniel, can play other positions of course, but it’s still competition for me.As usual I’m sharing a room with Ben Foden. I’m always with Fodes so when I arrived at the hotel I didn’t even need to ask. It’s even the same room we were in through the Six Nations. We were bored with the first one so asked to change. They put us in one which is the same but with the layout reversed!My injury meant I was on the sidelines in one sense, but that concept doesn’t really exist with England at the moment, so instead of getting out on the pitch I’m confined to the marquee that’s been erected at the hotel for our fitness work.They have all these horrible machines – rowers, skiing machines, weightless running machines and spinning bikes with a rowing wheel – specially adapted for us. I’d love to meet the guy who invented them as he needs a good talking-to.If you’re injured, it’s no excuse to sit in your room all day, that’s for sure. The training is intense, but that’s what you need if you’re going to play for your country. There are no questions asked and if there are… you can order yourself a taxi.This article appeared in the September 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UKcenter_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Photo courtesy of the Episcopal Church in Minnesota via Faith & Leadership[Faith & Leadership] Nine-year-old Caleb Barnett of Edina, Minnesota, wasn’t the only one getting a bit teary in May when he reluctantly reached for his 2020 calendar and crossed off Christian camp, canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic. His mother, Sarah, was as sad as he was. She runs camps for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota and knew he’d be missing a fun learning experience.But she began to see raw material for Caleb’s ongoing spiritual formation in the community that started showing up on their doorstep. Every day at noon, a group of his bike-riding friends — no longer tightly scheduled with organized activities — would swing by to get him and cruise the neighborhood.Having gotten to know their parents, she decided to invite the families over every Friday for a socially distant backyard camp that’s largely about Christian hospitality — and they’ve been coming. There are even matching T-shirts for all the kids.“I’ve actually thought of that as how I could empower my camp families to be that kind of local presence in their neighborhoods this summer,” said Barnett, the missioner for children, youth, camp and young adults at the diocese. “Maybe they just do a little picnic every Friday, invite their kids’ friends’ families and do this kind of relational ministry that Jesus was all about, even if it’s not vacation Bible school format.”As the strange summer of 2020 arrives, families are finding that they can’t count on the usual seasonal programming to help kids keep making progress in spiritual formation. Short-term mission trips are canceled. Christian camps and vacation Bible schools are taking the season off or pivoting temporarily to new models that can be administered at home, in small, socially distanced groups or online.Read the entire article here.

The Black House / Andres Remy Arquitectos

first_img Text description provided by the architects. The black house was born by the request of a young couple, brought to us by another of our projects “The Waterfall House”, which gave us the challenge of improving what we had done at that moment, taking advantage of the freedom they gave us during the design. This single house is located in a closed neighborhood, 30km. away from Buenos Aires. The lot, 20 meters wide and 50 meters length with 3 meter of lateral retreats, has amazing views to the lake we could not let aside.The analysis of the lot showed us the advantages and disadvantages we should take into account along the entire design process. The best views to the lake were at the back of the lot, while the best orientation was at the front. The surrounding houses and the wide lot marked the visuals we should use. The simple program, for a socially active couple without children, made relevant the resolution of the social areas. We decided to divide the social areas in two. In one side are located the common areas, such as the kitchen and the dinning room. On the other side is located the living room, closer to the lake. Save this picture!Courtesy of andres remyRecommended ProductsDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20DoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorThe shallow pool that divides the house in two allows the indirect light to bathe the interiors, as the northern sun reflects it’s light on the water surface. This way, light is present in every corner of the house, but never in a direct way. Both programs are connected by a glass bridge, with the water running under your feet.
The living room, 10 meters wide and 5 meters length, opens to the exterior using glass walls. It was thought in a lower level than the rest of the house, making it permeable and allowing the ambients a clean view to the lake. The resolution of the first floor follows the same criteria of differencing areas. At the front are located the bedrooms for the future children, with views to the lake. As a bridge, joining the two volumes in the lower floor is the main bedroom with a giant overhang that conquers the best views to the lake, seeming to float over the water. Save this picture!Courtesy of andres remyThe Black House has an almost provocative sobriety, where the pure white in the inside provoques an emotive contrast with the absolute black in the outside, reminding the bite of an apple.

Venezuela needs solidarity now more than ever

first_imgIbarra, EcuadorWorldwide demands for an immediate end to the criminal sanctions and economic blockades that impact Cuba, Iran, Venezuela and Syria have gone unheeded, just as the so-called international community also continues to ignore Gaza during the COVID-19 crisis. In fact, the U.S. is currently blockading ships carrying food and medicine to Venezuela and trucks carrying medicines to Iran.Venezuela’s government led by President Nicolás Maduro initiated legal proceedings against the U.S. government on Feb. 13 at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands. The country’s Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza said the action was aimed at Washington’s “unilateral coercive measures” — sanctions — which he described as a “crime against humanity” and a “weapon of mass destruction.”One year to the day after a series of cyberattacks were launched against the Venezuelan power grid, a fire in the main storage center of the National Electoral Council on March 7 destroyed 49,000 voting machines. A right-wing group claimed responsibility for the latest act of terror.Solidarity with Venezuela needed more than ever. Here, Washington, D.C., 2019.The people of Venezuela have weathered a perfect storm of crises since President Barack Obama declared in March 2015 that the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela was a “threat to U.S. national security.” In every scenario and in every case, the international media blame Maduro’s government for the disasters that continually plague the country, while ignoring the damage caused by U.S. sanctionsLike hungry vultures, the mass media are focused on the “frightening prospects” of the weaknesses in Venezuela’s health care system and infrastructure as this Washington Post opinion piece reported on March 19: “Hospitals in the United States and other developed countries worry they may not have enough respirators or intensive care beds to cope with the severely ill. But in Venezuela, according to one survey, more than 30 percent of hospitals lack power and water, and 80 percent lack basic supplies or qualified medical staff.”Poor people in the so-called “developed countries” are fearful about COVID-19,  while the veiled propagandists in the corporate media conceal the humanitarian and preventive approach to health care that will enable Venezuela, with the aid of China and Cuba, to serve all the people and to battle the pandemic.Sanctions’ deadly impact on VenezuelansVarious expert reports and articles have analyzed the impact of the U.S. intervention against Venezuela. In the month following the cyberterror, Mark Weisbrot and Jeffrey Sachs of the Center for Economic and Policy Research (CEPR) published their report in April 2019, which was titled “Economic sanctions as collective punishment: the case of Venezuela.”The CEPR report said: “The sanctions reduced the public’s caloric intake, increased disease and mortality (for both adults and infants), and displaced millions of Venezuelans who fled the country as a result of the worsening economic depression and hyperinflation. They exacerbated Venezuela’s economic crisis and made it nearly impossible to stabilize the economy, contributing further to excess deaths. All of these impacts disproportionately harmed the poorest and most vulnerable Venezuelans.”The report continued: “We find that the sanctions have inflicted, and increasingly inflict, very serious harm to human life and health, including an estimate of over 40,000 deaths from 2017–2018; and that these sanctions would fit the definition of collective punishment of the civilian population as described in both the Geneva and Hague international conventions, to which the U.S. is a signatory.”The CEPR report was punctuated by a comment Associated Press reporter Matthew Lee elicited from U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo at a Washington press briefing on March 11, 2019, during the week that Venezuela was disabled by the electrical blackout. Pompeo said: “The circle is tightening, the humanitarian crisis is increasing by the hour. I talked with our senior person on the ground there in Venezuela last night, at 7:00 or 8:00 last night. You can see the increasing pain and suffering.”IMF denies loan to fight COVID-19The New York Times reported on March 17 that the International Monetary Fund “quickly rejected a surprise request Tuesday by Venezuela for an emergency $5 billion loan to fight the new coronavirus, which threatens to push its already battered economy over the edge. An IMF spokesperson said the request can’t be considered because there was no clarity among its 189 member states on who it recognizes as Venezuela’s rightful leader: Nicolás Maduro or [self-appointed] Juan Guaidó, the U.S.-backed head of congress.”The Times quoted the IMF statement: “Unfortunately, the Fund is not in a position to consider this request. As we have mentioned before, IMF engagement with member countries is predicated on official government recognition by the international community, as reflected in the IMF’s membership.  … There is no clarity on recognition at this time.”In an official statement on March 18, Foreign Minister Arreaza commented:  “$5 billion is equivalent to the money blocked by the U.S., U.K., Portugal and elsewhere for two years. With that money, our health and food systems could have been strengthened.” ( solidarity with Venezuela Socialist Cuba, the nation whose name is synonymous with international solidarity, received travelers with COVID-19 from the cruise ship Braemar and sent a medical team that included Dr. Luis Herrara, the scientist who developed Interferon Alpha-2B, to aid the people of Venezuela at the onset of COVID-19.Thanks to China, Venezuela has 4 million test kits and millions of doses of Cuban medicines to combat COVID-19.In a passionate article published in the Asia Times on March 19, Vijay Prashad and Paola Espada expressed solidarity with Venezuela: “It is important to underline the fact that the IMF made this denial at a time when the coronavirus that causes Covid-19 had begun to spread in Venezuela.”  Noting that the IMF lists the Venezuelan foreign minister on its website, Prashad and Espada went on: “The United Nations continues to recognize the Venezuelan government. That should be the official standard for the IMF to make its determination. But it is not. It is taking dictation from the U.S. government.”Prashad and Espada wrote further: “On Monday [March 16], the chief of the International Monetary Fund, Kristalina Georgieva, wrote a blog post on the Fund’s website; it represents the kind of generosity necessary in the midst of a global pandemic. ‘The IMF stands ready to mobilize its $1 trillion lending capacity to help our membership,’ she wrote. The day before Georgieva made this public statement, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry sent a letter to the IMF asking for funds to finance the government’s ‘detection and response systems’ for its efforts against Covid-19.”The two writers explained: “In the letter, President Nicolás Maduro wrote that his government was ‘taking different preventive measures and following through strict and exhaustive controls to protect the Venezuelan people.’ These measures required funding, which is why the government was ‘turning to your honorable organization to request its evaluation about the possibility of authorizing Venezuela a financing line of $5 billion from the Rapid Financing Instrument emergency fund.’Argentinian Marxist shows outrageFrom Argentina, political analyst Atilio Boron expressed outrage in Resumen Latinoamericano on March 20: “The famous ‘international community’ mentioned in order to harass Venezuela for the likes of Trump, Piñera, Duque, Lenin Moreno and others of their ilk is a crude fiction like Juan Guaidó, which does not even number 50 countries.”  He said the IMF rejection of Venezuela’s request “plunges it into the sewers of history.”  ( will pass into history with all the other great plagues that the world has endured. To honor its victims, its survivors in the working class must respond to the crisis by mobilizing against the greatest threat to life on earth that humanity has ever confronted: the global system of capitalism.In this time of crisis we must act in solidarity with Venezuela!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

GIY launch Cottage Market initiative

first_imgPrint Pictured at the launch of the Cottage Market Fund is founder of GIY Michael Kelly and the GIY community manager Karen O’Donohoe.LIMERICK community groups are being invited to apply for supports to the value of €65,000 as part of a new GIY ‘Cottage Market’ initiative.The initiative invites groups to avail of start-up funding in order to set up and run their own Cottage Market.Activity partners Ulster Bank and The Ireland Funds are set to support the initiative across the country to the tune of €65,000 over the next two years with GIY aiming to put home-made, home-grown food and craft back at the centre of Irish communities.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Applications can be made online here in order to avail of funding which will help them to establish and run their very own Cottage Market.The successful applicants will be awarded with a tailor made training programme, which will provide them with the skills they need in order to firmly place fresh homegrown and homemade food back into the hearts of rural communities.The initiative will see 20 new markets established across the country and those behind the new markets will take part in a training programme to ensure the markets’ success and longevity.Social Enterprise, Marketing, Finance and Food experts will deliver training on a number of key modules including how to set up and run a viable community market, how to grow food for a market and will also offer tips on how to successfully market the new venture.The deadline for applications is March 3 next; the groups behind the 20 new Markets will be selected by March 10th with the training programme taking place on March 25, 2017.Commenting on the launch of The Cottage Market programme, GIY’s Community Manager Karen O’Donohoe said, “The Cottage Market is a simple but fresh take on community led markets in villages, towns and cities all over Ireland. We know that this initiative for Cottage Markets across Ireland can be hugely successful.“We piloted the programme with three markets in Ladysbridge, Drogheda and Headford, and now with funding from the Ulster Bank Skills and Opportunities Fund and The Ireland Funds we are launching the Accelerator Phase that will build on the success of the pilot programme.”According to GIY a Cottage Market differs from a Farmer’s Market concept in that it is all about bringing hobbyists and amateur producers from a local area together to showcase their often hidden skills and talents in areas such growing, sewing or baking.Founder of GIY Michael Kelly describes it as “more community oriented than it is commercial. We are delighted to help establish what we feel is a natural evolution for GIY. The creation of these Cottage Markets will begin to satisfy the ever-increasing interest and demand from Irish consumers for locally grown and locally sourced food.“The recent scarcity of vegetables on the supermarket shelves has certainly reinforced the need for Irish consumers to think more locally.  In addition, these Cottage Markets will offer great opportunities for GIY’ers with an over- abundance of produce.”Commenting on the new GIY initiative, Pauline McKiernan, Sustainability Manager at Ulster Bank said: “I’m delighted we’ve been able to support GIY as it expands with the launch of the Cottage Market.“Our Skills and Opportunities Fund enables funding for unique projects like this that will make a real impact in our local communities”.Jordan Campbell, Director of Grants and Research at The Ireland Funds says, “The Ireland Funds’ Flagship Grant programme supports outstanding non-profit organisations to deliver effective programmes in the areas of arts and culture, education, peace and reconciliation and community development. The GIY Cottage Markets are a highly innovative and impactful means of promoting community integration and development. The Ireland Funds are proud to support their expansion into new communities across Ireland.”Applications to establish new Cottage Markets are now being accepted online and the process remains open until March 3rd 2017. Applications from existing market operators whose markets meet The Cottage Market criteria will also be accepted, the application form is available online here.

Pinterest Facebookcenter_img As a tune-up for its performance at the Texas Music Educators Association next month, Kantorei, Permian High School’s varsity choir, will offer a preview concert at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 5 at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center, 1310 N. Farm to Market Road 1788.The concert is Feb. 5 and the target date for tickets to go on sale is Jan. 16 through the Wagner Noel, Head Choir Director Aaron Hawley said. Costs will be $10, $15 and $18, depending on seating.Hawley said the choir is inviting local schools to bring their choirs to the concert. Their portion of the ticket cost will be picked up by the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, he said.“That’s really nice of them to do that and help us out,” he added.The TMEA convention is Feb. 14 through Feb. 17. Kantorei will perform at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Grand Hyatt hotel in San Antonio. Music will include “Alleluia,” a set from the Mozart Requiem, “Seinn O,” “Even When He is Silent” and “Kanaval.”Kantorei was chosen as a TMEA invited choir, Hawley said.The cost of the trip is $65,000 to $75,000 for about 60 students. Hawley said this is a chance for the community to support the students.“The school district has been very generous and we’re very appreciative of the fact that they’re going to pay a large portion of that, but this concert is to fill in the gaps,” Hawley said. He added that some of the expense is to rent the venue.He added that many community businesses and organizations have stepped up to help.The concert will offer a preview of the San Antonio performance, which is free. Hawley added that many families will make the trip to see the TMEA concert.“TMEA is a massive convention. I think over 30,000 people will be in attendance. Not all of those are choir people. It’s band, choir and orchestra. We will have a good 1,500, 2,000 choir directors who will hear us perform and that really is significant because that helps our community be recognized. It helps Permian High School be recognized within our profession,” Hawley said.“The purpose of those concerts is to kind of set a standard across the state as to, ‘Listen, this is what we should be doing.’ I think there were 12 different organizations that were chosen to perform and that’s high school, middle school and elementary.The selection process goes back to May 2017 when Hawley said more than 150 different choirs submitted audition tracks. Twelve out of those 150 were chosen, he added.“We know it’s an honor for our choir, but we really think it’s really an honor for the whole school, even … the city because a lot of great music has come from West Texas,” along with a lot of TMEA presidents, Hawley said.Within the past five to eight years, Lee High School in Midland and Andrews High School have performed at TMEA.“West Texas has good fine arts. It makes our competitions tough. It makes us have to step up, but we are recognized in the state and this just helps us do that again,” Hawley said.Kennison Vardeman, a 17-year-old senior and choir president, is in his second year in Kantorei. He and fellow 17-year-old senior and choir vice president, Lauren Simmons, are excited about the venture.“It’s just an insane honor that I feel like we don’t even realize how big it is yet,” Vardeman said. “It’s such a crazy once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for us. It’s just awesome to be able to do it my senior year.”Vardeman, who is also in Black Magic at Permian, said preparing for the performance has made the year feel different.“We go at such a fast pace already in this class,” he said. “To go even the extra mile on that all year has definitely made it different. I would definitely say it has sunk in, but not completely.”Simmons also is in her second year as part of Kantorei. She added that this is a chance to show that Permian is about more than just football.“… I think it’s a big honor for all of us in the choir program to be able to be involved in something so big. I think it’s going to be a lot different just because it’s more serious than how we’ve taken just regular choir concerts for our parents. I think it’s just a lot more intense than we’re used to,” Simmons said.
