Eurozone agrees bailout shake-up

first_img whatsapp Eurozone agrees bailout shake-up Share whatsapp John Dunne European leaders have agreed a restructuring of a financial bail-out fund in a bid to solve the debt crisis which is stalking the zone. Eurozone ministers bowed to German demands to renegotiate the time frame for contributions to the fund, at a Brussels summit. However the situation with Portugal, which rejected suggestions it needed a bail-out, remains top of the agenda. The eurozone debt deal follows months of negotiations.“We decided a comprehensive package of economic measures… Today almost all the strands of this enterprise have come together,” European Council President Herman Van Rompuy said.The new plan provides for the creation of a permanent fund, the European Stability Mechanism, to help troubled eurozone countries. It will be launched in 2013.A major sticking point was the speed with which countries had to pay cash into the 700bn-euro (£615bn) fund.The agreement requires 80bn euros of cash provided by eurozone countries in five equal annual instalments. There will be a further 620bn euros in guarantees.There had been expectations that the two-day summit in Brussels would agree a resolution over rescuing Portugal’s stricken economy.But Portuguese ministers said they had no intention of following Greece and the Irish Republic in tapping the bail-out fund.Privately, eurozone ministers believe it is only a matter of time before Lisbon asks for aid.

Dr. Kesner Ajax Diocese of Haiti Partnership program says: Rector Shreveport, LA [Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles] The diocesan community stands in prayer with Bishop J. Jon Bruno who on April 26 received a diagnosis of acute monocytic leukemia. He will begin treatment immediately. Bishop Bruno has issued a statement to the diocesan community.The full text is below.______________________________________________________________________________April 26, 2012My dear friends,As we move close to the 12th anniversary of my consecration on April 29, I am looking forward to the future, yet any time we make too many plans, we have to wait and listen for God.Having had what I thought was a bout of pneumonia since the House of Bishops last met in March, I have gone back into the hospital to determine what this nagging problem has been.With the great assistance of Dr. David Cannom of Los Angeles Cardiology Associates, Dr. Glenn Hatfield of The Medical Group, Dr. Lasika Senevirante of the Los Angeles Cancer Network, and the staff of Good Samaritan Hospital, I have discovered that this nagging problem is more than I thought it was. But I have been convinced by Dr. Cannom and Dr. Senevirante that I am too stubborn to let this go by the wayside, so we will start immediately to begin aggressive treatment for Acute Monocytic Leukemia (AML M5).I don’t do anything lightly, and I am never surprised that when God calls me, it is to do more than I asked or thought. The doctors are of a mind that we can beat this, but I want to be honest with you: I am frightened. Not unlike the amputation, or the metabolic staph infection (MRSA) that I experienced, or the court cases, a few challenges have come across our path.I want you folks to be as positive as you can be, and I need your prayers and support at this time. I want you to know that I have raised all of these concerns with my colleague Bishops, Diane Jardine Bruce and Mary Douglas Glasspool.I will continue to serve as Bishop of the Diocese of Los Angeles with the able assistance of the Bishops Suffragan and the Executive Staff. I, together with Bishops Bruce and Glasspool, Canon David Tumilty, the Rev. Canon Joanna Satorius and Canon Robert Williams will continue to be the management team of the Diocese.This will require some changes for us to continue to serve you in the life of this Diocese, and we will remain faithful. We will not hold things back from you, and we will remain in regular communication.If it should be that my health does take a turn for the worse, I will do what is needed to accomplish the election of the next Diocesan Bishop. I have notified Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, Bishop Stacy Sauls, and the Rev. Canon Chuck Robertson, and they have all assured me that they will do all they can to be of assistance.I want to assure you all of the depth of love, respect and grace that I feel from this Diocese each day of my life. My love to you, my appreciation, and forever my dedication.Yours in Christ,+ J. Jon BrunoSixth Bishop of Los Angeles An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET April 27, 2012 at 5:48 pm My prayers and that of my congregation, St. Luke’s, Calistoga will be with you and your family and those treating you.

EGR fosters conversations about economic inequality

first_img Rector Tampa, FL Tags Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI May 6, 2012 at 10:37 am A thought on this Sunday morning, Friend. I believe we need to ask if poverty of material well-being is much different than poverty of compassion or poverty of education or any of the other poverties we are all heir to?I believe rather than a broad-brush general approach, we need to encounter each person as an individual and realize that both parties have something the other needs and what we may project as the Others need is often a mirror of what we are missing as well?

I can sympathize with the gentlemen who referred to the visitors as communists. Communism theoretically was about what is now referred to as economic justice. It’s the old discussion of equal results versus equal opportunity. I’m an equal opportunity person, consistent with the US Constitution. It is a political issue– that does not mean that it is at odds with faithful Christian service. Does justice really mean economic equality? I don’t believe so; the real question is what are the conditions at the bottom. I believe the focus should be on the poor, defined as those who lack basics such as shelter, food, clothing, etc., and how can we help to ensure that people don’t fall into this category.“What you do unto the least of them, you do unto me.” That is caring for all of us as God’s children, but is not the same as saying that we all have to have economic equality. I think the phrase economic justice (or environmental justice) is most unfortunate and detracts from the goal of helping our neighbors in need.

Millennium Development Goals to alleviate extreme global poverty, EGR has begun initiating dialogues at individual congregations on the related economic issues that affect everyone, rich and poor, in the United States as well as overseas.“We felt that the church provided a place where rich and poor could actually maybe try to work on this issue without all the strident polemics around it, the basic belief being that all people, rich and poor, are children of God,” said John Hammock, EGR board co-chair and acting executive director. He also is associate professor of public policy at the Fletcher School at Tufts University in Massachusetts and co-founded the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative at Oxford University.“You focus on anger and fear and scarcity, you’re never going to get anywhere,” he said. “And Christianity is a religion of hope.”Instead, we should focus on the “both/and,” he said. “The United States is still the richest country in the world … Then you can start talking about an economics of reconciliation.”Episcopalian Marisa Egerstrom, a PhD candidate in American civilization at Harvard University, has joined EGR in its new outreach to congregations to facilitate these discussions. Last fall, Egerstrom founded Protest Chaplains to support the Occupy movement, and her work with EGR dovetails with her evolving Occupy efforts.“Where I’ve been spending most of my time [with Occupy] is actually trying to get a more long-term specific campaign off the ground, which I sometimes call the Occupied Church but is really a grassroots effort to organize churches around economic inequality,” she said. EGR has “sort of taken me and this campaign on as a pilot project to see what kind of conversations we can open up in congregations that might not have been possible before the Occupy movement began.”The vision is to create “a larger network of Christians who are deeply grieved by the effects of this rampant economic inequality” and to connect them to local efforts to address economic issues such as hunger, foreclosures or predatory lending, she said. She wants to “shift the paradigm from one of scarcity to justice” and then help people understand that “these aren’t local issues.”“Injustice always happens locally and to individual people, but the ways in which that happens is always national and global and systemic,” she said.“The other goal of this is to teach and encourage folks in congregations to create media around this, to take photos and do videos and to learn how to speak about one’s faith in public again,” she said. “I’ve been saying for a very long time that the only people who will ever be able to counter the ‘religious right’ are other Christians who reclaim our tradition, our speech, our vision of God, and who are willing to express that exploitation and hatred and exclusion are actually not the heart of our tradition, but [rather] this vision of redemption and unlimited grace and a new life.”EGR hired Egerstrom, Hammock said, because she “embodies a new vision of how to engage in this kind of dialogue” on economic inequality.“We have started and will continue to have dialogues in different Episcopal churches on this issue,” he said.The discussions aim to get participants to focus on what the economy means to them and what they as individuals and the church can do – moving beyond prayer and study to action, he said. They held one program at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Boston, then another at Holy Innocents Episcopal Church in Valrico, Florida, where EGR’s board co-chair and treasurer, Archdeacon Emeritus Gary Cartwright, serves. At Holy Innocents, Egerstrom and Hammock led a morning forum and a more focused smaller-group discussion in the afternoon.“It was a very helpful conversation, I think, at several levels,” said the Rev. Doug Scharf, rector. “What was somewhat surprising to me was the personal dimension of our time together, where people were able to express their fears and concerns and hopes based from their own experience.”Holy Innocents supports a range of social programs.“You do all these things for other people outside the church,” Marisa Egerstrom told the congregation. But what if you lost your house or job and couldn’t make ends meet? “Would you feel comfortable coming to your church for help?”In response, she said, “There was this very uncomfortable kind of smile. That was kind of a moment of opening.”She followed with a story from a Boston area rector of parish in a wealthy community. “She said that now she’s got parishioners on food stamps, and they drive 30 miles to go to the grocery store because they don’t want anybody from their church to see them buying groceries with food stamps.”The story addressed the shame people have about not having enough. “It became a way of sort of opening up a conversation that maybe had not been possible before,” Egerstrom said.In inviting EGR to Valrico, Scharf said, “I think the other goal was to kind of see what kind of response we would get to the work of EGR, kind of outside the Boston-New England paradigm. And Southwest Florida, in particular, where I’m doing ministry in eastern Hillsborough County outside of Tampa, [is a] much different context.”“Even the words ‘economic inequality’ were words that for some people had particular political and ideological baggage attached to them,” he said. “And so there was a lot of translation, I think, that had to happen just for people to understand what we were trying to do.”Before they arrived, Egerstrom said, “he was getting some calls from parishioners saying, ‘Who are these communists from Boston you’re bringing down here?’”In their forum presentation, Egerstrom and Hammock showed slides of graphs demonstrating what they meant by economic inequality and how much had changed in the last 30 years. Then they led a meditation to let people identify and “own” their emotional reactions to the material before beginning the conversation, Egerstrom said.The conversation pushed beyond the initial suspicions, she said. “Whether you’re an ‘occupier’ or you want nothing to do with Occupy … we really all just want the same things, and it’s not all that much. We just want to know that we’re going to be able to make a living, to feed our family, to have a decent life where we’re not absolutely struggling all the time.”One of the wardens told them afterward he initially came only to support the deacon but concluded, “This was all right,” Egerstrom said. During the program, “he pushed back. I pushed back. And it was fine.“We all learned that we can have those conversations. It doesn’t need to be an argument when it’s about our shared humanity, our shared vulnerability and ultimately our shared identity in being children of God. If we can get back to that, then any conversation is possible.”As a next step, Holy Innocents is considering using a small-group curriculum from the Boston Faith and Justice Network called Lazarus at the Gate, available as a 12- or eight-week course. That program has “been really powerful for a lot of folks,” Egerstrom said. “They really drastically changed their lives, their spending habits. They looked at the way their church is using money. And it’s very honest.”“I’m hopeful,” Scharf said, “that was we continue to move forward with this small group that maybe we can branch out and do some more forum-type opportunities with the congregation and within our deanery or diocese to continue the dialogue, help people understand that these aren’t liberal-conservative issues or Republican-Democrat issues. We’re trying to find a way to have the conversation as the body of Christ and how we can respond from a place of faith and service and not get caught in those ideological or political differences.”That fits with EGR’s philosophy. “EGR from the very beginning has felt that … the only way you can actually have social transformation is though the spiritual transformation of people,” Hammock said.— Sharon Sheridan is an ENS correspondent.

Je peux toutefois compter le grand, très grand nombre de fois où j’ai raté des appels, où l’on m’a laissé des messages sur répondeur, où je n’ai pas vérifié ces messages et où je les ai laissés sur le répondeur pendant un certain temps. Si bien que lorsque j’ai reçu un texto de Michael Hunn disant qu’il m’avait laissé un message, j’ai vérifié mon répondeur, rempli de messages d’anniversaire et d’appels aux dons de sang, et son message était là. Michael Hunn du bureau de l’Évêque Primat m’avait appelé et j’avais raté l’appel. Pour être franc, je savais que j’avais déjà rencontré Michael mais je ne savais pas vraiment qui il était ni quel était son poste. Alors j’ai demandé à mes parents : « Vous savez que Michael Hunn du bureau de l’Évêque Primat m’a appelé » et on connait la suite. Lorsque Michael m’a offert cette opportunité, je me suis senti honoré et complètement ébahi mais j’aimerais profiter de cette occasion pour adresser mes remerciements à l’Évêque Primat Curry, au Révérend Chanoine Michael Hunn, au Révérend Chanoine Anthony Guillen et au Directeur de la formation Bronwyn Clark Skov. Ces personnes m’ont placé ici devant vous tous aujourd’hui et je ne peux me sentir plus honoré que me soit donné cette opportunité.En lisant les prières et les lectures pour aujourd’hui, sept mots m’ont frappé. Sept. Sept mots qui peuvent tout simplement résumer ce que, de mon point de vue, doit être l’Église épiscopale, ce que je pense qu’elle peut être. Lors de la collecte aujourd’hui, nous avons entendu les mots : « unis les uns aux autres en pure affection ».  Les deux derniers mots me sont apparus particulièrement forts, les mots : « pure affection ». Ces mots me remettent en mémoire tellement de souvenirs et de pensées, au premier chef l’histoire de mon expérience au sein de l’église. Je voudrais ce matin partager avec vous trois des souvenirs que m’apportent ces mots.Pour ceux d’entre vous qui avez eu l’occasion de visiter le Centre de conférences de Kanuga, vous connaissez la beauté et la spiritualité de ce lieu. Vous connaissez le froid matinal et la vue du lac, les chants d’oiseaux et le bruissement des feuilles. J’ai été deux fois à Kanuga, une fois lorsque j’avais 10 ans, j’y suis allé avec ma famille pour assister au Nuevo Amanecer, une conférence du ministère latino pour toute l’église. Mais c’est ma plus récente visite qui a eu le plus d’impact de toute ma vie. En février 2017, à l’âge de 16 ans, je suis arrivé à Kanuga après une absence de près de sept ans, cette fois comme membre de l’équipe de planification de l’Événement des jeunes de l’Église épiscopale (EYE). Une fois sur place, je me suis souvenu de la paix et du pouvoir de la nature de calmer et d’enrichir mon expérience. Lorsque j’étais en chemin, j’apportais la dernière touche à ce qui allait devenir la Prière de l’Eucharistie de clôture d’EYE 17 à Oklahoma City. Dans la chapelle de Kanuga, l’équipe de Liturgie et Musique et moi-même avons répété la Prière d’Eucharistie de clôture avec le reste de l’équipe. Pour le sermon, les quatre jeunes de l’Équipe Liturgie et Musique ont chacun à leur tour expliqué au groupe ce que signifiait pour chacun la Voie vers la paix. Je pense que ma réponse a changé depuis mais le sentiment est resté sensiblement le même. À ce moment là, ma voie vers la paix était un chemin que je devais parcourir pour me sentir bien avec moi-même ainsi qu’avec mes actions et interactions dans le monde. Je pense qu’à présent cela a changé. Je crois que plus que mes interactions avec le monde, j’ai changé de cap pour me concentrer et apprécier les relations que j’ai avec les gens, leur histoire, leurs manières, la poésie dans leurs émotions et les bienfaits de la connexion.Mais ce n’est pas de mon message de ce soir là dont je veux vous parler maintenant. Ce dont je veux vous parler est la façon dont ce message a été reçu par mes camarades dans cette chapelle. Je veux vous parler de la pure affection que j’ai vu le groupe nous donner après avoir partagé avec eux notre création que nous léguons à EYE. Je me souviens avoir dit la paix que je ressentais avec chaque jeune et chaque adulte de l’équipe, et la fierté  et l’amour que je recevais en raison de ce que j’avais à dire. Je me souviens de Valerie Harris qui, en montrant l’autel, m’a dit que c’était là ma place, ajoutant qu’elle voyait en moi quelque chose de plus dont je n’étais pas encore conscient. Bon, je ne suis pas d’accord mais à cet instant j’ai senti que j’étais aimé dans cette église et dans cette communauté.Ce que j’ai oublié de mentionner des moments que j’ai passés à Kanuga, est que c’était la première fois que je récitais mon poème parlé Alabanza. En fait, les deux premières phrases que j’ai dites au début du sermon sont tirées de ce poème. Ce poème est l’aboutissement de mon année passée avec l’équipe de planification d’EYE – depuis notre premier voyage au Monument à la mémoire de l’attentat d’Okhahoma City jusqu’au moment où j’étais sur la scène à l’University of Central Oklahoma, contant à EYE ce récit que j’avais créé. C’était à la fois émouvant et impressionnant d’entendre les gens m’applaudir et m’encourager pendant que je parlais mais ce dont je me souviens plus que tout c’est ce qui s’est passé juste après que je sois descendu de la scène après avoir récité Alabanza une dernière fois. Je me souviens de ma sœur, qui est la raison pour laquelle je me suis inscrit à l’équipe de planification. Je me souviens comment elle m’étreignait alors que je pleurais des larmes de joie, d’épuisement et de fierté. Je me souviens comment ma famille de l’équipe EYE s’est approchée de moi alors que j’essuyais mes larmes et que j’en versais de nouvelles. Je me souviens de la délégation de Hawaï qui s’est approchée pour me donner un livre de prière écrit en hawaïen et un collier lei qui est toujours accroché au mur chez moi. Je me souviens du moment où j’ai entendu que mes paroles inspiraient les autres, une fois que nous avions tous quitté l’Oklahoma et que j’ai entendu mes paroles répétées dans le Minnesota. C’était une manifestation à vif et très réelle de pure affection, que l’on m’a montrée lorsque j’en avais le plus besoin.Lorsque j’entends le mot affection, je pense aux enfants, et maintenant que le chien Zach est ici, je pense aux chiens aussi. Je pense aux enfants et à leur capacité d’aimer toute chose et toute personne avec qui ils entrent en contact. Je pense à l’amour entre parents et enfants. Aujourd’hui, cet amour me fait penser aux familles qui me ressemblent et qui doivent passer par les méandres d’un système judiciaire conçu pour qu’ils ressentent la peur et l’oppression. Aux enfants à la peau brune qui sont détenus dans des camps d’internement moderne en raison de leur nationalité, de leur latinité et de leur teint de peau. Les gens voient les actions de nos nouveaux dirigeants et regardent horrifiés et bouleversés ; ils emploient pour les décrire des mots comme anti-américain. Permettez-moi de ne pas être d’accord. Si nous voulons rectifier ces actions, nous les Américains devons assumer la réalité de notre histoire, une histoire fêtée avec des feux d’artifice il y a quelques jours seulement. Comment notre agriculture a été développée et nos villes construites par des noirs, comment notre premier président, ce révolutionnaire, possédait des esclaves hommes et femmes. Comment le président à qui l’on a attribué la libération des esclaves, avait aussi fait exécuter 38 Dakotas qui protégeaient leurs terres ancestrales. Comment le gouvernement a séparé de leur famille les enfants latinos et autochtones par le biais de pensionnats et du Rapatriement mexicain. Comment le pays de la liberté et du courage est le pays des incarcérés et des colonisateurs. Comment nous avons nié aux gens de couleur leur humanité au nom de la peur blanche. Cette nouvelle manifestation de la peur blanche n’est que l’épisode le plus récent d’une longue histoire de racisme et de violence américains. Nous refusons notre liberté affichée aux Latinos qui traversent des frontières artificielles, pourquoi ? Parce qu’ils avaient des colonisateurs différents ? Parce que leurs racines et branches autochtones ne peuvent pas être retirées de la culture ? En ce moment même, les dirigeants de notre église sont en train de visiter le Centre de détention d’immigrants Hutto à 40 minutes d’ici. Je les applaudis et j’espère que les mentalités changent et que les gens soient motivés à apporter un changement. Un homme bon m’a dit une fois que le meilleur travail provient d’un sentiment de colère. Alors je dis, que notre colère apporte la justice et qu’elle puisse apporter la paix à toutes ces familles latino qui voient leurs enfants détenus en cage par les agents d’immigration (ICE). Que notre colère essuie les larmes sur ces visages bruns et que puisse démarrer un processus de démantèlement des institutions xénophobes qui continuent de prospérer. Que notre colère inspire et qu’elle puisse créer quelque chose de nouveau.Mon père m’a raconté l’histoire de son père. Mon grand-père était un homme suffisamment courageux pour venir depuis Mexico jusqu’ici. Il nous a raconté que son père vivait dans la crainte de la police migratoire ici et dans la crainte de la pauvreté chez lui. Ma grand-mère, ma Nana, a traversé le même désert pour suivre son mari. Elle l’a fait pour leurs trois enfants, pour qu’ils aient une meilleure vie que celle qu’elle pouvait leur offrir au Mexique. En tant que Chicano, je remercie mon père et mes grands-parents pour le courage qu’ils ont eu de traverser cette frontière à la recherche d’opportunités, opportunité économique, opportunité en matière d’éducation et opportunité sociale pour moi et ma sœur. Et en tant que Chicano, voir ces familles souffrir aux mains d’ICE et de la peur nativiste me rend furieux parce que je sais d’où je viens.Je suis un produit de l’unité par le biais de l’oppression, de l’alcoolisme et de l’étranger.Je suis un enfant de la révolution et des aventuriers qui ont bravé les déserts et les déploiements militaires.Je suis à des millions de pas de la pauvreté jusqu’à une promesse non tenue d’opportunité.Je suis un astronaute désireux de libérer les enfants de leur cage pour les emmener vers l’aventure au milieu des étoiles dont nos ancêtres nous contaient les histoires, pour leur montrer le lieu où la tierra se courbe et que le ciel et la mer s’incurvent l’un vers l’autre comme la lune et les étoiles.Je le suis et ils le sont aussi. Et nous sommes ici pour y rester.Et peut-être que vous n’aimez pas ce que j’ai à dire. Peut-être que vous me voyez comme un autre de ces jeunes à peau brune en colère qui n’ont pas leur place pour parler à l’église de cette façon. Mais si vous lisez les écritures saintes pour aujourd’hui, si vous écoutez ces textes, vous verrez que c’est notre vocation. Ézéchiel déclare : « Qu’ils l’entendent ou qu’ils refusent de l’entendre…ils sauront qu’il y a un prophète parmi eux ». Attention, je ne pense pas être un prophète mais on m’a donné cette occasion fantastique de parler à cette église, de parler en tant que jeune chicano, personne de couleur, qui voit cette église et voit ce qu’elle peut être. Nous devons être disposés à nous changer nous-mêmes et à changer nos institutions si nous voulons changer le monde.Dans ses mauvaises périodes, cette église m’a causé stress et déception, et l’année dernière j’ai été mis au défi de réexaminer comment je vois la religion, la spiritualité et l’intersection des deux. Cela dit, je ne reste pas dans l’église parce que j’aime ou que je crains Dieu. Je ne reste pas dans l’église parce que je veux faire plaisir à Dieu. Je ne reste pas dans l’église parce que je pense que j’ai un ticket pour le paradis ou une promesse de salut. Je ne reste pas dans l’église parce que j’ai besoin de me prosterner devant Dieu. Je reste dans l’église pour les relations établies et conservées par pure affection. Je reste dans l’église pour des hommes comme Randy Callendar, Frank Sierra, Luis González, Anthony Guillen, Jesse Villegas et Broderick Greer. Je reste dans l’église pour des femmes comme Grace Ahern, Nancy Fraustro, Ariana González-Bonillas, Luisa Bonillas, Bronwyn Clark Skov, Valerie Harris et Christi Cunningham. Je reste dans l’église pour les senteurs de Standing Rock et le frisson de Harte Lawn une nuit de prière. Je reste dans l’église pour la façon dont on voit les étoiles depuis les rocking-chairs de Kanuga. Je reste dans l’église pour les livres de prières hawaïens et Sandra Montes et sa musique. Je reste dans l’église pour les résolutions qui soutiennent la liberté face à l’oppression exercée par l’État. Je reste dans l’église pour l’anecdote qu’Anthony m’a dite le premier soir que j’étais ici, comment les ministères latino sont passés d’une publication de deux pages à la référence absolue en tant que ministère de groupe. Je reste dans l’église parce que la lucha n’est pas finie. Je reste dans l’église parce que nous avons une plateforme pour opérer de véritables changements et pour parler au nom des personnes réduites au silence. Nous avons une voix forte, une voix poétique et aimante qui voit les problèmes du monde et est prête à les combattre. Alors utilisons cette voix prophétique. Amen.

Ospreys run riot against Treviso

first_imgThursday Dec 11, 2008 Ospreys run riot against Treviso Ospreys put in a commanding performance at home on the weekend as they demolished Treviso in a 10 try spectacle that saw winger Tommy Bowe picking up four tries and the Italian side being crushed 68-8 at the Liberty Stadium.The Welsh hosts scored some excellent tries as they ran riot with Bowe crossing three times within a 25 minute period in the first half that also saw Nikki Walker scoring twice.Lee Byrne, Shane Williams and Ed Shervington all scored tries after the interval before Bowe claimed his fourth try six minutes from time.With a halftime score of 40-8, the game was well beyond Treviso, but they made a game of it after the interval and competed well until the final minutes, when the pressure once again proved too much.It was an impressive performance from the injury ravaged Welsh side who ran in some classic tries, with flyhalf James Hook showing what a dangerous open field runner he can be.This match was only broadcast on a Welsh tv channel, so the commentary is in Welsh, not English. The tries are great to watch though, in any language.

Reporter for El Watan attacked and kidnapped

first_imgNews News Follow the news on Algeria Organisation May 12, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa  Reporters Without Borders expressed its concern today about the beating up and kidnapping of a reporter from the daily newspaper El Watan on 20 July by a local official in the northern town of Tebessa who did not like what he had written about him.”We are shocked by this attack on the reporter, Abdelhai Beliardouh,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “If the local official felt he had been libelled, why did he not file a complaint before a court like any other citizen? This is a serious incident typical of a state of lawlessness.”Algerian prime minister Ali Benflis said the day after the attack that ‘press freedom is the foundation of democracy,’ so we appeal to the Algerian authorities to see that those responsible for this incident are punished.”Beliardouh, correspondent for the French-language El Watan in Tebessa, was attacked at his home by four officials of the chamber of commerce of Nememchas (covering Tebessa and Souk Ahras), one of them armed, and including the chamber’s president, Saâd Garboussi.Beliardouh was beaten up in front of his family and then dragged by the collar through the streets of the town to a square, where he was beaten further and publicly insulted. El Watan said police did not intervene to help the journalist, who was then taken by car to the cellar of Garboussi’s house where he was interrogated about the source of report in the paper that day that the chamber president had been arrested.Beliardouh had written that a police informer had said Garboussi had funded terrorist activities and helped the Islamic fundamentalist GIA to launder money raised through crime and racketeering in the Medea and Jijel regions.Shortly before the attack, Garboussi had phoned El Watan’s acting editor, Faisal Metaoui, to demand that he print his response to the article in the next day’s paper. When he was told it would not be possible until the day after, Garboussi said: “You’ll see, I’m going to deal with him.”El Watan filed a complaint with the state prosecutor in Tebessa for “kidnapping and intimidation” and called on the local authorities to ensure the safety of Beliardouh, whose attackers told him that if he repeated his error, he and his family would be killed.Beliardouh told the daily paper Le Matin on 22 July that the attack on him had been “thuggery and terrorism.” Garboussi denied that the incident had taken place and said he had filed a legal complaint.

Charter flight case ‘dragging on too long’

first_imgTwitter THE case involving Pamela Hickey, charged with illegal chartering of aircraft to bring Munster rugby fans to away games, is “dragging on too long”, Judge Tom O’Donnell has warned.Inspector Gerry Horan told the court that the DPP and the State required a two week adjournment. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Solicitor John Devane said that he had spoken to garda investigating the matter and that the likelihood was that the book of evidence would not be ready for some time, so his client, subject to the courts approval, would consent to a date in early September. Judge O’Donnell questioned the delay and Inspector Horan replied that there were “two, possibly three, charges, and that the the gardai were awaiting the book of evidence”.Mr Devane said that his client wished to face the matters “forthright and fairly”. Judge O’Donnell remanded the case to September 2 and marked it peremptory against the State, noting that it was “dragging on too long” Pamela Hickey, aged 37, with an address at Ashford, Patrickswell, is charged with three counts relating to Munster rugby matches in September 2004 and January 2005. She is charged with obtaining a service by deception by chartering flights through Monarch Airlines from Shannon to Gatwick on September 3 and 4, 2004 and January 15 and 16, 2005.

A Colorado man’s alleged killing of pregnant wife, 2 young daughters raises question of why

first_imgABC News(FREDERICK, Col.) — Two days after Chris Watts’ pregnant wife and two young daughters were reported missing, Watts was taken into custody, accused of killing Shanann Watts and the couple’s children, Celeste, 3, and Bella, 4.Authorities have not commented on a possible motive in the case that has shocked the small town of Frederick, Colorado.Here’s some of what we know — and still don’t know — about the case.A mysterious missing persons casePolice were notified Monday by a concerned family friend who hadn’t heard from Shanann Watts, who was 15 weeks pregnant, police said.Chris Watts, 33, had initially told reporters that his wife, 34, disappeared without a trace, leaving her purse and keys at home.“When I came home and then walked in the house, nothing. Vanished. Nothing was here,” Chris Watts told ABC Denver affiliate KMGH-TV Tuesday. “My kids are my life … I mean, those smiles light up my life.”‘He fooled us’After Shanann Watts and the girls were reported missing, family friends Nick and Amanda Thayer came to Chris Watts’ side.The Thayers helped their friend think through ideas on how to find his missing wife and daughters. Chris Watts even spent Tuesday night at the Thayers’ home.“We feel so stupid … trusting him to stay the night in the same house as our daughter,” Nick Thayer told ABC News on Thursday, overcome with emotion. “I’ll never let that go.”He said it didn’t cross his and his wife’s minds to ask Watts if he was involved.Watts was a “hands-on dad,” Nick Thayer said. “And that’s why we were there with him because all the times we were with him it was nothing but love” toward his family.“He fooled us. And I’m so sorry. We just thought we were doing the right thing by being a good friend,” Nick Thayer said. “We were duped.”“In the 48 to 72 hours we were with him … he was his normal self,” Amanda Thayer added. “He never once cried.”“He and Shanann were always hugging, kissing and smiling. They were just a picture of ‘in love,’” she said.Now, with the accusations that Watts killed his family, Amanda Thayer said: “I want to know why.”“It doesn’t make sense,” her husband said.Bodies recoveredBodies believed to be Shanann Watts, Bella and Celeste have been recovered near each other, officials said while declining to say the location.According to ABC affiliate KMGH-TV in Denver, Shanann Watts’ body was found on property where Chris Watts worked.KMGH-TV cited sources who said that the daughters’ bodies were found inside mostly full oil and gas tanks.Prosecutors said in court Thursday they believe the victims were killed in the family’s home, KMGH-TV reported.A husband in custodyChris Watts has been booked on three counts each of first-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence.He has not yet been formally charged and is set to return to court on Tuesday.“The suspect is presumed innocent until otherwise proven guilty in the court of law,” Weld County District Attorney Michael Rourke said at a news conference Thursday.Authorities have declined to comment on a potential motive.“Our role now is to do everything we can to determine exactly what occurred and assist in filing the thorough case,” Colorado Bureau of Investigation director John Camper added on Thursday.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Royal Navy destroyer HMS Diamond deploys to the Med

first_img View post tag: HMS Diamond Royal Navy destroyer HMS Diamond got underway from Portsmouth on September 29 for maritime security operations in the Mediterranean Sea.The Type 45 destroyer will provide reassurance to allies in the region throughout the autumn.The deployment follows a busy few months for HMS Diamond and her crew, who spent most of the summer operating in or around UK waters.“I’m thrilled that HMS Diamond is once again at sea on operations to keep our nation safe. I am proud of every single sailor in this ship for the work they have put in to get us ready for this mission,” Commander Ben Keith, the commanding officer of HMS Diamond, said.“I also want to pay tribute to our families as none of what we do could be achieved without their support while we are away from home.”HMS Diamond recently returned from a visit to the Polish port of Gdynia, and had previously been involved in monitoring Russian warship activity in areas of UK interest.Over the last couple of months, Diamond has been involved in monitoring Russian naval activity, visited four ports, helped train warfare officers and RAF air crew, hosted two ambassadors, represented the Royal Navy in front of a million people at Bournemouth Air Festival and joined NATO ships in the Baltic.
