Ireland v South Africa: The Preview

first_imgReplacements: Sean Cronin, David Kilcoyne, Michael Bent, Donncha O’Callaghan, Iain Henderson, Eoin Reddan, Ronan O’Gara, Fergus McFadden.South Africa : Zane Kirchner, JP Pietersen, Jaco Taute, Jean de Villiers, Francois Hougaard, Pat Lambie, Ruan Pienaar; Tendai Mtawarira, Adriaan Strauss, Jannie du Plessis, Eben Etzebeth, Juandre Kruger, Francois Louw, Willem Alberts, Duane Vermeulen PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA – SEPTEMBER 29: Eben Etzebeth of South Africa takes the lineout ball during The Castle Rugby Championship match between South Africa and Australia at Loftus Versfeld on September 29, 2012 in Pretoria, South Africa. (Photo by Lee Warren/Gallo Images/Getty Images) One match-up no-one would have foresaw was that at hooker, where Rory Best’s absence has seen Leinster hooker Richardt Strauss thrust into action against Adriaan Strauss. The surname isn’t just a coincidence, it’s his cousin. The residency rule is stirring up increasing debate all over the home nations and that particular match-up will only fuel the critics. That Michael Bent, the New Zealand-born backrow has also been parachuted into the Irish 23, only a fortnight after landing in Ireland, has left the likes of Keith Wood, so vocal on Five Live last night, far from impressed with the current system.Brute force: Etzebeth will take some stoppingBring in the newWith so much upheaval, it’s no surprise that youngsters will be to the fore in both sides. Ulster fans have been banging the drum about Chris Henry for a while now and he gets a chance at openside, while Mike McCarthy will find out pretty soon if he can step into the giant boots of Paul O’Connell. The Springboks will be trying out some combinations of their own, with outside-centre Jaco Taute highly accompanying the battle-hardened Jean de Villiers. Up front, England found out to their cost, about the strength of Willem Alberts and 21-year-old Eben Etzebeth in the loose, so their tacklers will need to pull them down early to stop the home defence being overrun.Verdict: With both sides shorn of such star names, this game will be extremely too close to. I expect Irish pride and the fervent green masses to carry Ireland home by two points.IRELAND V SOUTH AFRICA, Saturday 10 November, 5.30pm, Aviva Stadium, Live on BBC2Ireland : Simon Zebo, Tommy Bowe, Keith Earls, Gordon D’Arcy, Andrew Trimble, Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray; Cian Healy, Richardt Strauss, Mike Ross, Mike McCarthy, Donnacha Ryan, Peter O’Mahony, Chris Henry, Jamie Heaslip (captain). Absent friends: Jamie Heaslip will lead Ireland out for the first time without many of his regular teammatesBy Owain Jones, Editor, Rugby WorldJAMIE HEASLIP will lead Ireland out against the Springboks for the first time, promising to ‘give the Irish people something to cheer about’. The big Leinsterman added for good measure. “We don’t like losing in our back garden. It will be a full house on Saturday and the place will be rocking.”This rabble-rousing rhetoric is to be expected, but while the form book says Ireland should be approaching the game with confidence, after victories in three out of four of last outings against the Springboks, the mood in Ireland is one of apprehension. This is in most part due to the nature of their last Test in which they were demolished 60-0 by World Champions New Zealand.Pressure’s onWith Declan Kidney entering the last year of his contract, mumblings on discontent can be heard after an inconsistent run of form over the last 12 months. The 2009 Grand Slam seems a distant memory and Irish fans have been heard to joke that they don’t know Ireland side is going to turn up; the side that can overturn Australia 15-6 during a World Cup, or the brow-beaten unit that capitulated to England, in March. What makes it more unsettling for Kidney is the backdrop of success at provincial level, where Ulster have never been stronger and Leinster have been roundly hailed as one of the world’s best teams after winning consecutive Heineken Cups. As for South Africa, after an underwhelming Rugby Championship, Heyneke Meyer will also be under scrutiny from a demanding rugby public in the rainbow nation. There’s no lack of motivation for both sides.Big test: Simon Zebo lines up at 15Walking woundedOne of the most startling facts about the line-ups is the names not on the team sheets. For Ireland, the injury list makes for sorry reading. Brian O’Driscoll, Rob Kearney, Sean O’Brien, Rory Best, Stephen Ferris and Paul O’Connell are all missing from the fray, as they fight their way back from their respective injuries. This had forced the normally conservative Kidney to gamble, it remains to be seen whether the likes of Simon Zebo can step up as a full-back. South Africa for their part have an even longer injury list with superstars Bryan Habana, Bismarck du Plessis and Schalk Burger all recuperating and watching from afar.Pleased to meet you LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Presiding Bishop to lead reconciliation pilgrimage to Ghana

first_imgPresiding Bishop to lead reconciliation pilgrimage to Ghana Follow the journey on Facebook Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Collierville, TN The ocean-facing courtyard of Cape Coast Slave Castle. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will lead a weeklong Episcopal Relief & Development pilgrimage focused on reconciliation to Ghana Jan. 20-28, visiting cities and sites critical to understanding the trans-Atlantic slave trade and Episcopal Relief & Development partners and programs working to improve Ghanaians’ lives.“At General Convention in 2015, we promised to address systemic, structural racism as a church. One of the first steps is learning the stories: how our church supported and prospered because of slavery and oppression, how black people have related to one another, how Ghanaian communities bear huge gifts and wisdom into the world today. That’s what this pilgrimage is all about,” said the Rev. Stephanie Spellers, canon to the presiding bishop for evangelism, reconciliation and creation.An estimated 12 to 25 million Africans passed through Ghana’s ports to be sold as slaves in the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean. Pilgrims will visit Cape Coast Castle, the W.E.B. DuBois Center, Elmina Castle and Pikworo Slave Camp for a historical perspective on the slave trade. They will also have an opportunity to meet Episcopal Relief & Development’s partners, including the Anglican Diocesan Development and Relief Organization in the Anglican Diocese of Tamale, and to witness its asset-based community development work.“Episcopal Relief & Development is honored that the presiding bishop is leading this pilgrimage of brother and sister bishops along with current and former members of our board,” said Rob Radtke, president of Episcopal Relief & Development. “Our Ghanaian church partners and my colleagues look forward to sharing our asset-based community development work with the pilgrims in the northern part of the country, and later traveling to the Cape Coast to pray and reflect on the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the work of reconciliation required of all of us as followers of Jesus.”Britain abolished the slave trade in 1807; the U.S. President Thomas Jefferson signed a law prohibiting the importation of slaves. The Episcopal Church and individual Episcopalians benefited from the slave trade. The 75th General Convention sought to address the church’s role in slavery.Pilgrims will share photos, thoughts and videos of on a designated Facebook page, where Episcopalians and others can follow their journey. Episcopal News Service coverage and a video will follow the pilgrimage.“We hope people everywhere will pray and join our reconciliation witness on Facebook. Most of us will never make the trip to Ghana. We’ll never see the camps where enslaved Africans were herded before being torn from the Mother Land, or see the Anglican church that rises like a blessing behind the main slave castle. So, we will go, and we will reflect and film and return to help our whole church to keep reckoning and changing,” said Spellers.— Lynette Wilson in an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

The events of centuries ago seldom mention that African peoples actively practiced slavery and were very much a part of slave trade by trafficking people to coastal regions for Europeans to buy. For this reconciliation to be full one must move from the strange comfort of expressing repeated regrets and apologies for the sins of people long dead and announce against the modern slave trafficking occurring in Ghana (and elsewhere) today.

While they can not guarantee to find a solution to a charity’s needs they find they can usually help out. Topics covered include executive coaching; equality and diversity; disability awareness; management development; finance for non-financial managers; marketing; presentation skills; recruitment and selection; employment law; customer service; communications; and creativity. Advertisement The trainers do not charge for their time. All they ask is that expenses are covered: materials, up to £75, at the trainer’s discretion; mileage, at 50p/mile; and accommodation at £75 per night, if required.Charities interested in making use of this pro bono service should fill in the online request form which asks for details such as training objective, delegate numbers, training location, and dates. This is then circulated to the volunteer trainers, some of whom will express an interest. The charity then gets to pick the most suitable trainer.

Corn Pollination Will Occur Very Late, May Lead to Additional Stress

first_img As farmers well know, pollination is the most critical phase of corn development for determining potential corn yields. Corn pollination has already begun to occur in the Delta and Southeast Regions, while it will eventually expand into the Midwest in the weeks ahead. Because of significant delays in planting, corn pollination will occur much later than normal. Maxar’s Weather Desk says the 50 percent corn-pollination date is expected to be on July 27, 10 days later than the five-year average and 15 days behind 2018. The eastern part of the Midwest will see the biggest delay, where it will occur three weeks later than the five-year average.The delayed development in the Midwest could push pollination into what’s typically a drier time of year. Normal precipitation will occur during the expected pollination window around early August in states like Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio.  Weather Desk Meteorologist Kyle Tapley says, “Late pollination increases the potential for stress on the corn crop in all these areas.” While floodwaters have receded in some parts of the Midwest, there are still solid precipitation chances in the largest corn-producing areas across the region, including Iowa.

This week’s purchase did not include securities guaranteed by either GSE, the Government National Mortgage Association, or Ginnie Mae.In September, the Fed announced it would leave rates unchanged and begin a gradual shrinking of its balance sheet, which sits at $4.5 trillion due to purchases of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities in the aftermath of the financial crisis, according to CNBC.However, despite the decision to leave rates alone last month, Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic said he believe the U.S. central bank should raise interest rates again by the end of the year.”We, in our forecasts of movements for the year, had said we expected three hikes in the course of 2017. I am still in that space,” said Bostic in an interview by Reuters on the sidelines of a Fed conference in Austin, Texas while adding that he isn’t, “wedded to anything.”Regarding the expiration of Janet Yellen’s term in February 2018, President Donald Trump has interviewed four candidates for the job. According to Reuters, the nomination could come within weeks.“He faces a choice between two continuity candidates, current Chair Janet Yellen and Governor Jerome Powell, and two outsiders, Gary Cohn, currently his top economic adviser, and former Fed Governor Kevin Warsh,” the report said.Yellen was rumored to step down last year if now President Trump was elected, but now almost a year later, many wonder if she is up for another term if asked.”I have said that I intend to serve out my term as chair and that I’m really not going to comment on my intentions beyond that,” CNBC cited Yellen telling reporters following the Fed’s two-day policy meeting in September. “I will say that I have not had a further meeting with President Trump.
