World Cup 2015: Canada 15 – 17 Romania

first_imgWho did what in Canada’s Pool D clash with Romania in Leicester. TAGS: CanadaHighlightRomania LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Romania produced the biggest comeback in Rugby World Cup history to overturn Canada‘s 15-0 lead in the last half-hour of this Pool D clash and win 15-17.A first-half try by DTH van der Merwe and a penalty from Gordon McRorie gave Canada the lead and they extended that advantage to 15-0 when Jeff Hassler scored a great individual try early in the second half and Nathan Hirayama converted.But Romania dominated the last half-hour of the match as their pack took control. Skipper and No 8 Mihai Macovei was driven over after a lineout on the left then, with Jebb Sinclair in the sin-bin, Macovei crashed over from the back of a scrum for his second try. Florin Vlaicu converted both and added a match-winning penalty two minutes from time.So Canada finish their Pool D with just one bonus point to their name, while Romania go on to play Italy on Sunday.Captain Fantastic: Mihai Macovei scores his second try.

Pen: Florin VlaicuYellow card: Catalin Fercu 18 minReferee: Wayne Barnes (England)Man of the match: Jeff Hassler STATISTICS71 – The percentage of territory enjoyed by Romania in the final ten minutes of the match as they got Canada in a stranglehold they couldn’t escape from.130 – the number of metres Canada full-back Harry Jones made in attack. Jeff Hassler made 125, out of a team total of 497m.16 – the penalty count at half-time was 7-7 but Canada conceded 16 penalties in all by the final whistle, including nine in their own half, while Romania infringed just ten times in total.2 – the number of Romania players celebrating their 50th cap in this match, as Valentin Poparlan and Mihaita Lazar both reached that landmark.Canada: H Jones (J Pritchard 75); J Hassler, C Hearn, N Blevins (C Trainor 49), DTH van der Merwe; N Hirayama, G McRorie (P Mack 49); H Buydens (D Sears-Duru 45-54 and 61), R Barkwill, D Wooldridge (J Ilnicki 67), B Beukeboom, J Cudmore (capt), J Sinclair, J Moonlight (N Dala 62), A Carpenter.Tries (2): DTH van der Merwe, Jeff Hassler . Con: Nathan Hirayama 1. Pen: Gordon McRorie 1Yellow card: Jebb Sinclair 71 mincenter_img WHAT’S NOTOff target – Canada could have won this match if they had landed all their goal-kicks. Gordon McRorie missed two first-half penalties and a conversion, then Nathan Hirayama missed a long second-half penalty, meaning 11 points went begging off the tee in total.Wasteful Romania – Oaks centre Paula Kinikinilau thought he had scored a try in the 64th minute but play was brought back as he crossed the line for a knock-on by Valentin Poparlan. A few minutes later Csaba Gal charged down a Canadian clearance but then knocked on as he tried to slide for the line with the ball.Man of the match – This tournament’s system for choosing the Man of the Match is seriously flawed. Nominations are posted on the Rugby World Cup Twitter feed during the last quarter, for the public to vote on, but that means players who make a meaningful contribution in the closing minutes are excluded. It’s much better to let the TV experts make the choice in the last five minutes. Mighty Oaks: Romania celebrate as the final whistle blows in Leicester. (Photo: Getty Images) WHAT’S HOTMihai Macovei – Romania’s skipper scored the two tries which put his team back in the game and led a forward effort which Canada’s pack could not match in the last half-hour. He made the right calls at the right time too, opting for scrums and lineouts from penalties and helping his team turn that pressure into points.Record breaker – Canada wing DTH van der Merwe scored a try for the fourth World Cup match in succession, and became the only player from a Tier Two nation ever to achieve that feat. He had already crossed in Canada’s matches against France, Ireland and Italy during this tournament. Mention too should go to James Pritchard, who came off the bench for Canada and in doing so reached the landmark of appearing at a fourth World Cup tournament.Landmark score: DTH van der Merwe set a new record. (Photo: Getty Images)Cool pack – They were outgunned at the end, but two brilliant pieces of set-piece work by Canada’s pack saved two almost certain tries during this game. In the first half, having already conceded two scrum penalties, they managed to force one of their own when Romania opted for a scrum from a penalty close to the Canada line. Then, with 62 minutes on the clock Romania had a lineout in the left-hand corner but Canada managed to drive the maul into touch.Florin Vlaicu – The Romania centre kicked two conversions and the critical, match-winning penalty. He missed two first-half penalties, but both were from beyond the halfway line, so he can be forgiven for that!Kicking king: Florin Vlaicu strikes the winning penalty.

Glasspool, asistente del obispo de la Diócesis Episcopal de Nueva York, compartió estos comentarios durante la sesión matutina del 14 de marzo en el retiro de la Cámara de los Obispos de La Iglesia Episcopal en Kanuga:El Camino del Amor y de Lambeth.La Reverendísima Mary D. GlasspoolEl Camino del Amor no es nada si no se expresa en gratitud, así que comienzo ofreciendo mi profundo agradecimiento a todos y por todos ustedes. Gracias, no solo por la manera en que han brindado su amor y preocupación en esta reunión, sino también por su hospitalidad y amistad en los últimos nueve años durante los cuales he tenido el privilegio de servir. Gracias al Obispo Andy y al Obispo Allen, por su colegialidad, amistad, amor y la alegría que experimento al trabajar con ambos. Gracias al Obispo Michael, por su increíble liderazgo de estos locos cristianos en el Movimiento de Jesús mientras buscamos un bálsamo en Galaad. Estoy agradecida al obispo Gene Robinson, quien rompió el hielo en nombre de las personas LGBT +, sufrió las heridas y continúa sirviendo al Pueblo de Dios en el mundo. Estoy profundamente agradecida a mi esposa de 31 años, Becki Sander, que sigue siendo una pareja amorosa, sacrificada y perdonadora, así como una hija de Dios por derecho propio. Y especialmente agradezco a nuestro amoroso y gracioso Dios, que hace que la Presencia de Dios sea conocida incluso en aquellos momentos en que, como Elías, estoy tratando de esconderme en alguna cueva, o cuando, como Jonás, estoy tratando de olvidarme de la gente de Nínive. Gracias.A las pocas horas de mi elección como segundo Obispo Sufragáneo de Los Ángeles, el primero fue mi hermana en Cristo: Diane Jardine Bruce, el entonces Arzobispo de Canterbury, Rowan Williams, emitió una declaración que comenzó: [Esta elección] plantea cuestiones muy serias, no solo a La Iglesia Episcopal y su lugar en la Comunión Anglicana, sino a la Comunión en su conjunto. Luego recordó a La Iglesia Episcopal que la elección debe ser confirmada, o podría ser rechazada, por los obispos diocesanos y los comités diocesanos permanentes. Esa decisión tendrá implicaciones muy importantes. [Declaración del Arzobispo de Canterbury del 6 de diciembre de 2009].Hace dos años, el Arzobispo Rowan Williams, retirado de Canterbury desde 2012, estaba en la ciudad de Nueva York, dando charlas de Semana Santa en la Iglesia de St. Thomas, en la Quinta Avenida, y lo invitamos a formar parte de nuestro servicio de Renovación de votos el Martes Santo en la Iglesia Catedral de St. John the Divine. Compartí con mis hermanos obispos que estaba más que un poco ansiosa de conocerlo y que estaba planeando ocultarme  en la sacristía, invisible si pudiera lograrlo. Cuando me estaba vistiendo en la concurrida sacristía, para mi horror, vi al Arzobispo caminando directamente hacia mí, y antes de que me pudiera escapar, él estaba frente a mí. Dijo: Obispa Mary, tuvimos un comienzo difícil, y lo siento. Espero que me perdone, y podamos comenzar de nuevo. Tartamudeé, por supuesto. Entiendo. Gracias. Para mí, este breve intercambio fue el más sagrado de los regalos, un verdadero bálsamo en Galaad.El 22 de septiembre de 2018, el actual Arzobispo de Canterbury, Justin Welby, fue recibido por Trinity Wall Street para promover la Conferencia de Lambeth. Después de asistir a la consagración celebrativa de La Reverendísima Carlye Hughes en Newark, los obispos de Nueva York y nuestros cónyuges se unieron al Rector y a la Junta Parroquial de la Trinidad para una recepción y una cena en honor del Arzobispo. En la recepción, el Arzobispo Justin no solo nos saludó calurosamente, sino que buscó específicamente a mi esposa, Becki, y la involucró en una conversación amistosa y prolongada. Parece que cada uno de ellos tiene pasión por el trabajo social, y el Arzobispo compartió información con Becki sobre un proyecto en el que está trabajando, le dio su tarjeta con su dirección de correo electrónico personal y la invitó a comunicarse con él. Luego, el Arzobispo y nuestro propio Obispo Presidente Michael, hicieron una presentación informal antes de ir a cenar. Bromearon sobre la Boda Real y se mantuvieron alegres. Entre las palabras pronunciadas por el Arzobispo se encuentran estas: el Obispo Michael y yo somos hermanos en Cristo, aunque no estemos de acuerdo sobre algunos temas, como el del matrimonio gay. No me gustó mucho el comentario, pero Becki, la más inteligente de las dos, sospechó. Traté de asegurarle a Becki señalando que el Arzobispo Justin había hecho todo lo posible por comprometerse y hacerse amigo de ella, y que todo estaba bien.Comparto todo esto con ustedes para que puedan comenzar a imaginar el impacto cuando, de forma inesperada, recibí una carta personal del Arzobispo Justin el 4 de diciembre, cuya primera frase decía: Querida Obispa Mary, le escribo a usted directamente, ya que siento que le debo una explicación a mi decisión de no invitar a su cónyuge a la Conferencia de Lambeth, una decisión que, como bien sé, le causará dolor, lo cual lamento profundamente. La carta me recordó que La decisión sobre las invitaciones a la Conferencia de Lambeth la hace el Arzobispo de Canterbury.La carta incluía una invitación a que Becki y yo fuéramos al Palacio de Lambeth para hablar más sobre la decisión, si así lo deseábamos, y pedía mi comprensión, aunque no mi acuerdo con esta decisión. La carta fue copiada a + Andy Dietsche, + Michael Curry, y al Arzobispo Josiah Idowu-Fearon, Secretario General de la Comunión Anglicana.Compartí la carta con Becki, quien se sorprendió, lastimó y enfureció; y el Obispo Andy y yo compartimos la carta con el Obispo Allen. Pedí que todo esto no se hiciera público hasta que tuviéramos tiempo de reflexionar y orar juntos por una respuesta. Becki y yo también fuimos a ver al Obispo Michael el 13 de diciembre para más consultas, lamentos, consejos y atención pastoral, todo lo cual recibimos con gratitud. Escribí una carta de dos páginas en respuesta al Arzobispo Justin, en la que invocaba la Carta desde una Cárcel de Birmingham del Dr. Martin Luther King, en la que se citan algunos puntos relacionados con leyes justas e injustas; compartiendo algo de mi viaje personal; asegurándole mis propias oraciones; y cerrando con este párrafo:Quizás lo más importante que quiero decir es  esto: ¡Se trata de AMOR! Me refiero a las personas que se aman y recurren a la iglesia para ser apoyadas en sus matrimonios de por vida. Se defienden los valores de fidelidad, respeto, dignidad, verdad, monogamia y el amor que es nuestro amoroso regalo de Dios para todos nosotros. Después de una discusión de por vida, estoy relativamente segura de que La Iglesia Episcopal nunca volverá a dar la espalda a la comunidad LGBTQ. ¿Se dirá lo mismo de Lambeth 2020?Becki le escribió una carta al Arzobispo Justin y la envió el 24 de diciembre para que pudiéramos tener una Navidad tranquila. Hicimos lo que pensamos que deberíamos hacer, y luego descansamos. Sabíamos que no se trataba solo de nosotros, pero en ese momento era una conversación personal y privada.Esperaba que esta noticia no se hiciera pública hasta después de esta reunión de la Cámara de los Obispos, cuando pensé que podríamos considerar juntos estos asuntos y otros relacionados con la Conferencia de Lambeth. Pero cuando el arzobispo Josiah Idowu-Fearon escribió en su blog que sería inapropiado que los cónyuges del mismo sexo fueran invitados a la conferencia en un post titulado The Global Excitement About Lambeth Conference el 15 de febrero de este año, la noticia se hizo pública rápidamente. Igualmente quedó claro que se trataba de un problema político, no solo sobre Becki y mi, y el obispo Kevin Robertson de Toronto y su cónyuge, Mohan Sharma, y ​​el obispo electo de Maine: Thomas Brown y su cónyuge, Tom Mousin, sino sobre las personas LGBTQ en todo el mundo y sus relaciones con nuestra iglesia. Los aspectos políticos de la situación se publicaron rápidamente: el costo de Lambeth, el propósito de Lambeth, los llamados Instrumentos de Unidad, el poder, la autoridad, la inclusión, la exclusión, la hospitalidad y la cortesía común, ¿deberíamos ir? ¿No deberíamos ir? La gente de la Diócesis de Nueva York comenzó a preguntar a sus obispos qué pensábamos, y sentimos la necesidad de compartir algunos de nuestros pensamientos con nuestra propia gente, no de ninguna manera para evitar la discusión, sino simplemente para compartir nuestros pensamientos. Entonces, los obispos de Nueva York enviaron una carta fechada el 1 de marzo a la diócesis, escrita principalmente por el Obispo Andy, y firmada por el obispo Allen y mi. Esa carta fue compartida con todos ustedes a petición del Obispo Michael. Otros de ustedes también han escrito cartas.Para terminar, haré tres puntos breves y luego ofreceré algunas preguntas que podríamos elegir considerar. Los puntos son solo míos, aunque ciertamente pueden estar de acuerdo o en desacuerdo con ellos. El primero es este: los esposos son personas autónomas, no son simplemente extensiones de los obispos con los que están casados. Como hijos de Dios por derecho propio, en mi opinión, tienen la libertad y la prerrogativa de tomar sus propias decisiones sobre Lambeth. Espero que escuchemos sus voces, individualmente, y en la medida en que puedan hablar colectivamente, como grupo. Confío en que los escucharemos, y no intentaremos hablar por ellos.En segundo lugar, realmente creo que es mejor estar a la mesa cuando estás en el menú. ¿Cómo vendrá la gente a ver y conocer el amor de Cristo, mientras vive y da frutos en las vidas de personas LGBT casadas si no estamos a la mesa para dar testimonio de ese amor.Y tercero, quiero que mi propia vida esté centrada en la vida, el ministerio, la muerte y la resurrección de Jesucristo, y me atrevo a decir que ustedes también. Es muy fácil y, a veces, muy tentador, al menos para mí, alejarme de ese centro. Por lo tanto, estoy pidiendo su ayuda para mantenerme centrada. Soy muy consciente de que el Camino del Amor es también el Camino de la Cruz. Todos ustedes también saben esto. El aspecto sacrificial del amor de Jesús por nosotros también es el más precioso, y por eso, y por todos ustedes, estoy eternamente agradecida.Así que aquí hay algunas preguntas. ¿Cómo vamos a seguir siendo una cámara hospitalaria? En la reunión de otoño, si Dios quiere, le daremos la bienvenida a nuestro Obispo Thomas Brown y su cónyuge, Tom, y posiblemente a otros socios LGBT casados. Ciertamente, antes de la Conferencia de Lambeth puede haber más. ¿Cómo les daremos la bienvenida?¿Cuál es la mejor manera de dar testimonio del amor y la justicia de Dios en Lambeth? ¿Hay formas creativas de hacer esto?Estoy segura de que hay otras cosas de las que todos quieren hablar. Entonces, oremos. Oh Dios de poder inmutable y luz eterna: mira con favor a toda tu Iglesia, ese maravilloso y sagrado misterio; por la operación eficaz de tu providencia, lleva a cabo en tranquilidad el plan de salvación; haz que todo el mundo vea y sepa que las cosas que han sido derribadas son levantadas, las cosas que han envejecido son renovadas, y que todas las cosas están siendo llevadas a su perfección, mediante aquel por quien fueron hechas, tu Hijo Jesucristo nuestro Señor: que vive y reina contigo, en la unidad del Espíritu Santo, un solo Dios, por los siglos de los siglos.

Friday Funnies – Horacio Agulla loses his pants

first_imgFriday Apr 15, 2011 Friday Funnies – Horacio Agulla loses his pants It’s nearly the weekend so time for something on a lighter note, and a clip that is quite possibly for the ladies out there, who apparently seem to think they never have anything to ‘check out’. In reality there’s muscular men in tight shorts running around for their delight all the time, while all the male fans get is a few cheerleaders on the sidelines. Whatever the case, the female rugby fans are appreciated here on RD, so this one is probably for them. There’s not much more one can say about this, except that Horacio Agulla of Leicester Tigers somehow had his shorts pulled right down last weekend against Leinster, following a pretty impressive hand-off behind his own tryline. Commentator Miles Harrison was more than mildly amused, which makes for a quite funny clip, and one that a few of you have requested to see again. So guys out there, have a laugh, and to the ladies who visit the site regularly, of which there are many, enjoy.

Arroyo Parkway Project That Would Demolish 6 Buildings, Remove 23 Trees Goes Before Design Commission

first_imgEVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS 18 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Pasadena’s Design Commission on Tuesday is expected to examine a proposal to build a 154,000 square-foot medical office building and a 184,376 square-foot, 92-unit assisted living facility near the Whole Foods Market on South Arroyo Parkway.The project will also involve the demolition of six existing buildings and the preservation of three existing historic buildings before the new medical office building and the assisted-living building are constructed. Up to 23 non-protected trees on the site will be removed, as well as 17 street trees along the project site’s street frontages. Two street trees are proposed to be removed, which will require a public tree removal permit through the Department of Public Works’ Urban Forestry Division.The project site, along 465-577 S. Arroyo Parkway, consists of five contiguous lots totaling about 3.3 acres along the west side of South Arroyo Parkway between Bellevue Drive and East California Boulevard. It is currently developed with nine buildings, surface and subterranean parking, and landscaping.The project is currently in the preliminary consultation phase of the city’s approval process.A report by the Department of Planning and Community Development showed many of the buildings along South Arroyo Parkway south of the project site are one-story commercial buildings, although there’s a five-story mixed-use building across Arroyo Parkway, from the 491 to 495 S. Arroyo Parkway. Buildings at the north end of the project site and the Whole Foods building and others north of the site are larger-scaled structures up to four stories high.The Metro L Line (formerly Gold Line) tracks adjoin the west side of the site. The Del Mar Station is about 1,600 feet north of the northernmost point of new construction on the site and the Fillmore Station is about 1,300 feet from the southeast corner of the site.Nearby designated historic resources include the Home Laundry at 432 S. Arroyo Parkway to the northeast, built in 1923 by Marston, Van Pelt and Maybury; Bryan Court at 427 S. Marengo Ave. to the northeast, built in 1916 by D.M. Renton; the Evanston Inn at 385 S. Marengo Ave. to the northeast built in 1887; the South Marengo Historic District to the east, the Marengo-Pico Landmark District to the southeast, Royal Laundry at 443 S. Raymond Ave. to the west built in 1927, and the Kaufmann and Drive-up Building built in 1939 by George Whyte.At the Design Commission meeting Tuesday, staff from the Planning and Community Development Department will present applicable design guidelines and potential design issues for commission members to comment on or to provide input that would help finalize the design.Projects of this magnitude also traditionally go through a community consultation and public hearing process where input from members of the community also help shape the final design.The Design Commission’s meeting begins at 4:30 p.m. and can be accessed through https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89814640260 or by calling (669) 900-6833 and using the webinar ID 898 1464 0260.Public comment may be sent by email to [email protected] prior to the meeting day. or through www.cityofpasadena.net/planning/public#comment/.

Holiday Helpings Lends a Hand to Children in Need

first_imgSusie Stauffer, director of Holiday Helpings, hands Remedios Zurita a bag of food for her child Thursday at St. Peter’s Methodist Church. By Maddy VitaleThere are 400 children on free lunches in Ocean City schools. So, what happens on the holidays when school is out? Do they still eat nourishing meals, do they go hungry, or eat less healthy?Susie Stauffer had those questions a few years ago. She went to her friends, fellow volunteers, and school officials, to create a plan to provide grocery bags filled with good foods to take children through Christmas break and spring break.Stauffer, director of Holiday Helpings, Sarah Lee, co-director of Holiday Helpings, from St. Peter’s Methodist Church and Waves of Caring director Ocean City Fire Chief Jim Smith, joined forces and everything fell into place. “What do the kids do when there is no school for an extended period of time?” Stauffer asked, explaining her initial thoughts that led to Holiday Helpings. “There are a lot of programs around the country that provide food and I wanted to do the same.”Ocean City schools helped a lot, Stauffer said. “When I started Holiday Helpings three years ago, I spoke with the principal of the primary school, and the superintendent. District staff tells us how many letters we need prepare and the staff puts the labels on. There is a lot of confidentiality around it.”The letters went home in November and about 45 families with about 100 children, signed up for the grocery bags. One bag is given per child.Parents and their children came in to pick up their grocery bags Thursday afternoon at St. Peter’s Methodist Church, 8th Street and Central Avenue. Another pick-up time was scheduled for later in the evening to give more people an opportunity to pick up the food. Volunteers packed up the groceries throughout the week. More than 120 bags lined the tables, filled with soups, macaroni and cheese, pancake mix, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, a can of raviolis, a loaf of bread and some frozen sandwiches. More than 100 shopping bags filled with groceries were given out to needy families.Remedios Zurita walked up to the table and gave her phone number. Names are not required for confidentiality purposes. Stauffer handed her a bag of groceries and a loaf of bread and they chatted briefly, before Zurita turned to leave.“This helps,” Zurita said smiling. “Thank you.”Volunteer Edgar Rivero acted as a Spanish interpreter Thursday to communicate with some of the people who picked up their groceries.  One woman walked to the church for four bags. Lee, co-director of Holiday Helpings, asked her, through Rivero, if she needed a ride home. The woman said yes. Lee helped her with her bags and gave her a ride home.Holiday Helpings volunteer Edgar Rivero, who acted as a Spanish interpreter, speaks with Enriqueta Ramirez.Another woman, Enriqueta Ramirez, came to the church to pick up bags of food for her three children. Rivero spoke with her and helped her with her bags.Lee called the program an “eye opener,” because it shows of a definite need in the community.“It’s meant to fill that gap for breakfast and lunch, when kids aren’t at school,” Lee explained of the foods given to the children for their school break. The program couldn’t be a success without the help of St. Peter’s Church and Waves of Caring, Stauffer remarked. “Jim (Smith) has good resources in town. Now that we are partnered, he has one of the guys drive me out to the foodbank in their big truck. The first few years we had cars to pick up the food,” Stauffer said. “Now we can put everything on a palette. Each bag contains 12 to 14 items and there were 120 bags, so the palette had 1,400 food items on it. That is a lot of food.”To date, Holiday Helpings has provided 575 bags of food to children in the community between the Christmas and spring breaks.For more information on the Holiday Helpings organization call 609-277-3885 or email [email protected] Susie Stauffer and Sarah Lee, both of Holiday Helpings, work together to prepare bags to hand out to families.last_img read more
