Holders Leinster target Heineken hat-trick

first_imgOnly Leicester Tigers have made a successful defence of their Heineken Cup crown, winning back-to-back finals in 2001 and 2002, and to make it three titles head coach Joe Schmidt’s team are going to have to match that Leicester feat.“Winning the Heineken Cup in 2009 and again in 2011 were both very enjoyable times,” said Cullen.“Perhaps the first time it was more a case of relief, as I had been part of Leinster teams who had for a number of years disappointed on the big day.“The second time, in Cardiff with the Millennium Stadium roof closed, the atmosphere in the stadium on the day was phenomenal. “What also stays with you is the nature of the game, how it looked as if it was going to be pretty embarrassing for us going into half time at 22-6 behind with Northampton looking to run away with the game. To turn it around in the manner we did I think was unbelievable and the party atmosphere in the stadium afterwards was unforgettable.

(Photo by Mike Hewitt/Getty Images) “The scrum was a massive element of the final, we knew they had a lot of power in their front row but they still managed to catch us a bit cold in the first half and score a couple of tries from scrums.“The big turning point came when we got a bit of a push on, got a penalty and that got us back in front. It certainly was a game of scrums and thankfully we had the slightly fresher legs.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The 17th season of European club rugby’s elite tournament kicks-off on Friday and Leinster will open the defence of their Heineken Cup crown by stepping into the unknown against tournament newcomers Montpellier in the first Heineken Cup match to be staged at Stade de la Mosson.Leinster, who have won two of the last three finals, are bidding to join Toulouse by becoming only the second club to win more than two of European club rugby’s most coveted titles as the 24 clubs have Twickenham Stadium and the 2012 final on Saturday, 19 May, in their sights.“It will be a really tough opener in Montpellier,” said Leinster captain Leo Cullen. “They had an unbelievable home record in the Top 14 last year and they were within 10-15 minutes of beating Toulouse in the French final last season and then only lost by less than a score.“They are going to be a very tough proposition and everyone in our Pool has strong home records.“It is almost a given that in the Heineken Cup you have to win your home games so you ask yourself where you are going to pick up an away win. It is tough to see where that can come from though we will have an opportunity straight away against Montpellier.“The key, once again, will be to keep your destiny in your own hands and after playing at some fantastic venues last season – the Aviva and Millennium Stadium – Twickenham is another amazing venue and it would be great to make it that far.” last_img read more

Canada: The road to Waterloo

first_img[Anglican Journal] Anglicans and Lutherans have been in dialogue since the 16th century, when two denominations emerged as major players in the Reformation. But for Archbishop Michael Peers, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, 1986–2004, the Lutheran-Anglican connection dates back, in a concrete way, to 1969.At the time, Peers was rector of St. Bede’s, a small suburban church on a strip of stores and gas stations in the direct flight path of planes using Winnipeg’s airport. “We were approached by the even smaller Lutheran church about renting space in our building ” he recalls. “Instead, we decided to go to joint ownership of the Anglican church, which offered more space and facilities, and we became co-owners of the Mount Royal Christian Centre.”Today, that early move to common ground lives on in the joint parish of St. Bede’s Anglican and St. Stephen’s Lutheran churches, served sometimes by an Anglican priest, other times by a Lutheran pastor.Smoothing the amalgamation, back in 1969, was the origin of St. Stephen’s as a daughter parish of an Icelandic Lutheran church. The Scandinavian tradition of Lutheranism, Peers points out, is close in structure and worship to Anglicanism. “People on both sides quickly discovered that they recognized the other as church,” he says. ‘The liturgy, the order, the bishops are all similar, whereas the German Lutheran tradition of worship and church life is quite different.” The Lutherans, however, sang more of their liturgy than did the Anglicans, he recalls.The forging of the Lutheran-Anglican bond was facilitated by the winds of liturgical reform that swept Christian churches from the Roman Catholic to the United in the last century. “There was a great convergence,’ says Peers.Nevertheless, there was no lack of stumbling blocks to Anglican-Lutheran communion. One of the issues centred on whether Lutheran bishops were bishops for life, even after retirement, as their Anglican counterparts are, or whether that status expired with their elected terms. “Were they prepared to say you remain a bishop?” says Peers. Did a bishop’s Stand (German for status) survive his Amt (elected office)“Anglican bishops stand in historic succession going back to Gregory XII,” says Peers. They share this ancestry with the Lutheran churches of Sweden and Finland, which the Church of England has recognized as sister churches in communion since the 1930s.The question was resolved in a typically low-key Canadian way: it was simply agreed that every bishop would be a bishop for life. Some in the Anglican camp still had misgivings because historic succession was a cherished concept. What won the day was a simple test question: Is this a church—rather than are the ordinations right? “The Anglican Church of Canada took the position that if we look at a church and agree that it is church across the broad spectrum of Christianity and it’s episcopal in structure, then we say that its bishops and pastors are recognized as being what they say they are,” says Peers. “Our approach was based on observed reality.”In this the Canadians followed the flexible principle of interpretation and application of church canons that the Orthodox Christian Church calls oikonomia. “This tradition allowed them to work around potentially huge ‘tiresomenesses,’ ” says Peers. Waterloo 2001 recalledAnglicans my be known for their liturgy and Lutherans for their preaching, but at the 2001 service celebrating the adoption of the Waterloo Declaration, the specialties were reversed. Bishop Telmor Sartison, national leader of the Lutheran church, presided over the service, while Archbishop Michael Peers delivered the sermon. The celebration took place in a hockey arena, “but it was much more than a hockey game,” says Sartison, who the second national bishop since the formation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. There was no formal pulpit, but preach Peers did—to about 1,000 people—on the meaning of the eucharistic command “Do this in remembrance of me.”Peers, a linguist, took up the theme of re-membering, not in the sense of recalling but in the sense of putting sundered parts back together. This is what this was all about; we were re-membering our members,” he recalls.After the two sides had almost unanimously voted to enter full communion, a gigantic loaf of bread was brought up from the back, along with a huge carafe of wine. Waiting at the door to shake hands as people left, the two bishops decided it was time for a sign of the new common ground, so they both started dancing to “Siyahamba” (“We Are Marching in the Light of God”), the closing hymn. “We danced pretty well,” recalls Peers, “but of course expert in this is Desmond Tutu.” Adds Sartison: “I’ve danced all my life but Michael was much better.” Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Tampa, FL Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Canada: The road to Waterloo Featured Events Rector Belleville, IL Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Submit an Event Listing Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Director of Music Morristown, NJ National Bishop Telmor Sartison and Archbishop Michael Peers signal the signing of the Waterloo Declaration.

Casa Torcida / SPG Architects

In 2005, SPG Architects was approached by our client to re-consider the incomplete structure that he had previously erected on a remote Costa Rican coastal hillside. The all-but-abandoned steel framework and concrete slab construction was being reclaimed by the forest yet the prior investment in time, materials, and money was considerable. Although the structure was beautifully sited, it needed considerable re-thinking to become a viable and beautiful home. As architects we were convinced that salvaging the existing structure was not only feasible but also the right thing to do, for both the client and the environment. The dual concerns of accommodating the needs of the client and preserving the natural landscape shaped the design and construction process from that point forward.

The existing geometry required minor reconfiguration of the perimeter to improve the massing and use of the house. Sheer walls, bracing, and enhanced connections were required to reinforce the frame for seismic activity. Neither of these activities further degraded the site. Save this picture!© Charles LindsayFurther impact on the site was reduced by the decision to make the house self-sufficient in terms of energy and water use. This both eliminated the considerable expense of running electrical lines 18 km from the nearest town and avoided the inevitable suburbanization of this sparsely populated coastal area that doing so would have risked. Upon completion, this house had the largest domestic solar array (18.4 kW) in Costa Rica, which provided enough energy for lighting, appliances, and miscellaneous equipment. In the future, this solar-derived power will also provide for the needs of a complete and state-of-the-art recording studio, for which space has been designated at the ground level. Save this picture!© Charles LindsayThe solar panels, both photovoltaic and hot water, sit on a reflective & insulating, chemically inert & microbial-free, ceramic-based roof coating that both minimizes solar heat-gain and provides a clean source of water for the house and the pool. Roof water collects in a 75,000-gallon cistern, precluding the need for well water and eliminating any impact on the water table. No air-conditioning is required since natural cross breezes are exploited to maximize comfort in each room. The house incorporates movable and adjustable louvered and screened panels in each living space and movable glass walls that allow the rooms to fully open so that indoors is completely merged with the outdoors.

High-efficiency appliances, light fixtures, and plumbing fixtures all contribute to the environmentally responsible approach to co-existing with nature in this very 21st century home.

Seattle: Workers need health care, not Trumpcare! WW commentary

first_imgSeattleMarch 9 — In Washington state, there were 15 deaths from COVID-19 (coronavirus) and 79 diagnosed cases of the disease as of March 6.  With the epidemic growing there, the state’s Department of Health reported 22 deaths and 162 cases as of today.Most fatalities have occurred at the Life Care Center, a nursing home located outside Seattle in Kirkland. There, 19 patients died of the virus between Feb. 19 and March 9.  It is likely there will be more tragic deaths there. Today, positive test results for 31 of 35 patients were reported.  Seven of the facility’s 55 current residents already have COVID-19 symptoms. Results are unknown for the remaining 20 patients.SEIU Healthcare 1199NW members on the picket line for patient safety, Jan. 28. credit: SEIUTimothy Killian, Life Care spokesperson, says the nursing home received only 45 test kits on March 5 for its then 120 residents.  That was 15 days after the first COVID-19 death there! This crisis is the fault of the Trump government, which should have produced enough test kits for Life Care — as well as for all people and medical facilities that need them nationally.Patients’ visitors are frustrated at the lack of communication from Life Care officials about their relatives’ health. Killian says no other facilities are willing to take ill Life Care residents.Impact of virus on workersOf the 180 workers employed at Life Care, 65 have been self-quarantined at home since Feb.19 because they have symptoms of COVID-19. Killian did not know how many workers have been tested or hospitalized, nor has he confirmed if those confined at home are being paid.Like other cities, Seattle has huge medical complexes and foundations for research and training.  But health care for the working class is rapidly declining, and the system is badly equipped to deal with COVID-19. Workers need health care, not neglect — or the nothing that is Trumpcare.The health care industry’s goal is to maximize profits, not to meet the needs of the multinational working class.  This situation is even worse when a challenge arises, such as the COVID-19 epidemic, as millions of people have no health insurance or providers.Life Care puts profits before people’s livesLife Care Centers of America, Inc. is “a closely held” for-profit corporation with 200 facilities in 28 states and a total of 40,000 workers.  The company has 14 facilities in Washington state.Between the great resources at Life Care centers and the government, there can certainly be more aggressive treatment and isolation measures to save patients’ lives. Company officials could bring in additional health care workers to relieve the facility’s employees who are putting their lives on the line.Life Care is only the latest case showing how this for-profit industry harms workers and patients by having an insufficient workforce — even in an emergency.  But workers are fighting back.From Jan. 28-30, 7,800 members of SEIU Healthcare 1199NW struck seven Swedish-Providence hospitals in the Seattle area. Their main demand was: Fill the 900 vacant workers’ positions.  The lack of sufficient staff has affected patients’ health care and exhausted many workers.Also, government workers have protested over the 500 vacant positions at the Seattle Veterans Hospital.Another problem: Not enough masks are available. They are essential because they protect people from getting sick.  Few people are wearing them outside. Retail workers in stores aren’t wearing them; some report the bosses won’t allow them to do so.Masks are even being rationed in local hospitals. Health care workers are demanding more of them. The transnational 3M Company is surely anticipating huge profits from sales of these masks, which have been pumped out at plants in South Dakota, Latin America and China.  But the U.S. government didn’t stockpile nearly enough — and there’s a worldwide need for them.Rally warns of dangers at prisons, sheltersThere is a looming threat of COVID-19 among workers in prisons and homeless shelters.  At a rally on May 7 in front of the Tacoma Northwest Detention Center, an immigration prison, speakers warned of the virus’ threat to prisoners. They explained how a disease can rapidly move through a prison with inmates living in close quarters, while health care inside is almost nonexistent. If an epidemic is severe, it can even breach the prison walls. The Tacoma prison has already had outbreaks of such contagious diseases as mumps and chickenpox.La Resistencia, the rally’s organizer, asks supporters to call the Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department and politicians to demand an inspection of the prison and the release of all elderly and sick prisoners and those with chronic medical conditions.The response to the COVID-19 health care crisis could be strongly affected by the demands and mobilization of workers and communities.  An aroused and united working class demanding the right to essential medical care would make health care industry moguls lose profits, but it would save many lives.The call for free, universal medical care for people of all nationalities and genders, prisoners, undocumented im/migrants, refugees and the homeless must be raised — and implemented all over the U.S.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Families on €100 000 are “struggling”

first_imgLimerick Senator has beef with meat industry RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Print Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Facebook TAGSMinister for Finance Michael NoonanpoliticsRichard Boyd BarrettWealth taxWillie O’Dea TD Enterprise Support Grant should include older self-employed people WhatsApp FINANCE Minister Michael Noonan has ruled out the introduction of a wealth tax, claiming that families with an income of more than €100,000 a year are struggling to make ends meet.Responding to People Before Profit TD Richard Boyd Barrett’s calls to introduce a wealth tax on incomes over €100,000, the Limerick Minister said households with such an income were not wealthy.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking in the Dáil last week Minister Noonan added: “They’re barely getting the kids up in the morning and out to school, paying the bills, paying the mortgage, and keeping the car on the road. And if you think a gross income for a couple at €100,000 is wealth, you’re not meeting the real people.”However, Limerick Fianna Fáil TD Willie O’Dea noted that families earning €100,000 a year are “a hell of a lot more wealthy than families with an income of €20,000, who the Government has hit repeatedly”.He told Limerick Post: “If you take a young person aged 25 or 26, before the payments were cut their total income was about €9,500 a year, now, depending on their age category it’s gone underneath that.“Let’s face it, everything is relative, but people on over €100,000 have suffered a lot less under this Government than people earning a lot less.
