Both sides shook off the shackles, putting any suggestions that they are boring or predictable in the shredder as they launched wave after wave of attack, be the players in green or red. Ireland took a 13-0 lead thanks to Johnny Sexton’s boot and a try from Conor Murray but Wales hit back with a Taulupe Faletau touchdown and nine points from Rhys Priestland, who replaced the injured Dan Biggar early on. The two kickers exchanged penalties in the final ten minutes and while both teams tried to break the deadlock late on the scores remained level. This draw certainly opens things up in terms of the race for the Six Nations title – and expect to see more running rugby from both sides throughout the championship.Mind the gap: Conor Murray bursts over to score for Ireland. Photo: Getty ImagesWHAT’S HOT…Adventurous spirit – Both Ireland and Wales demonstrated a real intent and adventure in attack. Ireland’s kick-dominated game that drew such criticism last season was nowhere to be seen, with the most significant high ball of the first half coming from the boot of Liam Williams and reaching the hands of Dan Biggar. Instead, Ireland used CJ Stander, who was named Man of the Match on debut, to make significant inroads in midfield before spreading the ball wide and finding half-gaps to sneak through, with Robbie Henshaw and Simon Zebo particularly prominent.Wales, too, showed more variety in their attacking game, mixing the hard carries of Jamie Roberts, Alun Wyn Jones and Rob Evans with long passes to the wings where there often seemed to be space for the likes of Jonathan Davies and Liam Williams (a late addition to the starting team in place of the injured Gareth Anscombe) to put Ireland under pressure.The Wales scrum – The pack in red looked to have the edge from the first scrum and that advantage delivered them a try at the end of the first half. They earned penalties from a succession of 5m scrums, Taulupe Faletau going over off the last one. Even if the No 8 had not scored, a penalty try was no doubt coming Wales’ way. The young trio of Rob Evans, Scott Baldwin and Samson Lee held their own, with Gethin Jenkins able to offer considerable experience off the bench.Ground force: Taulupe Faletau gets the ball down for Wales’ try. Photo: Getty ImagesDefensive authority – Given all the attacking exuberance, it was strong defensive performances that limited each team to a try apiece. Jared Payne marshalled Ireland’s back-line extremely effectively in defence and Robbie Henshaw looks like he’s trying to replicate the breakdown feats of Brian O’Driscoll with his willingness to get involved at the contact area. In the red corner, Jamie Roberts, Taulupe Faletau and Tom James were just a few of the Welshmen who made important tackles.WHAT’S NOT…Pressure tells – A catalogue of Wales’ errors led to Ireland’s try. First Rhys Priestland knocked on as he tried to pick up a poor Gareth Davies pass. Ireland kicked the ball on and Devin Toner charged Davies down as he attempted to clear from the resulting Wales lineout. Priestland collected the ball but made little ground with his clearance – and if he’d reacted better he would simply have touched the ball down for a 22 dropout. Instead, Ireland had a lineout and a few minutes later had touched down through Conor Murray. Priestland did shake off those mistakes to slot important kicks, though.On target: Rhys Priestland slotted nine points for Wales. Photo: Getty ImagesSlow starts – Warren Gatland has often bemoaned his team’s inability to start matches strongly and Wales did themselves no favours here. They allowed Ireland to gain territory through multiple phases in the first 15 minutes and while their line wasn’t breached in that period they did concede six points from the boot of Johnny Sexton. With the disruption then caused by Dan Biggar’s departure with injury, it took Wales a while to settle and they found themselves having to come back from 13-0 down. While they did fight their way back into the game, they need to play with the intensity they showed in patches for the full 80 minutes and particularly in the first 20. Had they started better, they may well have edged this match.STATISTICS5 – The number of line breaks made by Ireland, compared to none by Wales.

Habits of Grace: An invitation for you, from Presiding Bishop…

first_img Rector Hopkinsville, KY Youth Minister Lorton, VA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Editor’s note: Presiding Bishop Michael Curry is offering Habits of Grace, a weekly meditation to help Episcopalians cope during the COVID-19 pandemic. “As we learn how to adjust our lives given the reality of the coronavirus and the request to do our part to slow its spread by practicing physical distancing, I invite you to join me each week to take a moment to cultivate a ‘habit of grace.’ A new video meditation will be posted on Mondays through May.” — Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Knoxville, TN Episcopal Church Office of Public AffairsPosted Mar 16, 2020 16 de marzo de 2020:  Hábitos de GraciaHola. La semana pasada, mientras todos planeábamos e intentábamos reordenar nuestras vidas y adaptarnos a la nueva realidad en la que estamos, envié un mensaje de texto a la reverenda Gay Clark Jennings, presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados, como hacemos a menudo. Y durante este intercambio de textos, me preguntó: “¿Has pensado en hacer una breve meditación cada semana para la iglesia mientras estamos en estos días del coronavirus?” Le envié un mensaje de texto y le dije, “Es una buena idea”. Y así esta semana comenzamos lo que creo que será una corta meditación semanal. Sólo una palabra o una canción, no cantada por mí, sino una canción, un poema, una oración. Sólo algo para la semana en la que estamos viviendo.Tengo una lista de oración en mi celular en la sección de notas pequeñas del iPad y he notado que esa lista ha ido creciendo. Pero si bien a menudo he dicho que mi momento de oración es temprano en la mañana, la realidad es que ahora disponemos de más tiempo durante el resto del día. Así que tal vez el hábito de la oración se incremente un poco para mí y para nosotros.Una de las cosas de las que soy consciente es que los hábitos consistentes, lo que algunos han llamado hábitos de gracia, pueden ser realmente útiles, en especial en momentos de angustia. En la televisión vi que un movimiento ha comenzado en Milán y parece que se ha extendido al resto de Italia. Aparentemente a las seis de la tarde todos los que están en sus apartamentos socializan saliendo al porche y comienzan a aplaudir. Simplemente aplauden. Y todos aplauden y aplauden como una forma de decir gracias a los médicos que están trabajando, al personal de primera intervención que está trabajando. Es una forma de decir gracias. Y luego los aplausos se convierten en una canción. Y a veces cantan su himno nacional o cantan alguna otra canción, todos los días a las seis. Un hábito de gracia. Una forma de centrar el día. Sea cual sea la forma en que lo hagas, encuentra y mantén ese hábito de gracia o esos hábitos de gracia que centran el día. Mañana martes será el día de San Patricio. No habrá desfile, pero tal vez podamos rezar una oración atribuida a San Patricio.“Me levanto hoy a través de una fuerza poderosa, la invocación de la Santísima Trinidad. A través de la creencia en la triada, a través de la confesión de la unidad, el creador de toda la creación. Así que Cristo esté conmigo. Cristo ante mí. Cristo detrás de mí. Cristo dentro de mí. Cristo debajo de mí. Cristo sobre mí. Cristo a mi derecha. Cristo a mi izquierda. Cristo cuando me acuesto. Cristo cuando me siento. Cristo cuando me levanto. Cristo en el corazón de todos los que piensan en mí. Cristo en la boca de todos los que hablan de mí. Cristo en los ojos de todos los que me ven. Cristo en todos los oídos que me escuchan. Cristo en el corazón de los amigos y de los extraños”. *Dios te bendiga. Dios te guarde. Y que Dios nos tenga a todos en esas manos todopoderosas de amor”.

Last week while we were all planning and trying to reorder our lives and adapt to the new reality that we are in, I was texting back and forth with the Reverend Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, as we often do. And in the course of our texts back and forth, she asked, “Have you ever thought about maybe doing a short meditation each week for the church while we’re in these days of the coronavirus?” I texted her back and said, “That’s a good idea.” And so this week we began what I think will be a weekly short meditation. Just a word or a song, not sung by me, but a song, a poem, a prayer. Just something for the week in which we are living.I keep a prayer list on my cell phone in the little note section of the iPad and I’ve noticed that that list is increasing. But the reality is while I often always say my prayer time early in the morning, there’s more time even during the rest of the day now. And so maybe the habit of prayer can increase a bit for me and maybe for us.One of the things that I’m aware of is that consistent habits, what some have called habits of grace, can really be helpful especially in unsettling times. I was watching television and saw where in Milan and throughout Italy apparently, a movement has begun. Apparently at six o’clock every evening everyone who is in their apartment is socializing by coming out on the porch and at six o’clock they begin to applaud. They just start clapping. And everyone claps and applauds as a way of saying thank you to the medical folk who are working, the first responders who are working. Just a way of saying thank you. And then the applause moves into or morphs into a song. And they sometimes sing their national anthem or sing some other song, every day at six. A habit of grace. A way of centering the day. Whatever way you do it, find and keep that habit of grace or those habits of grace that center the day. Tomorrow, Tuesday, will be St. Patrick’s Day. There won’t be a parade, but maybe we can say a prayer attributed to St. Patrick.“I arise today through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Holy Trinity. Through belief in the three-ness, through confession of the oneness, the creator of all creation. So Christ be with me. Christ before me. Christ behind me. Christ within me. Christ beneath me. Christ above me. Christ on my right. Christ on my left. Christ when I lie down. Christ when I sit up. Christ when I arise. Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me. Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me. Christ in the eye of everyone who sees me. Christ in every ear that hears me. Christ in the heart of friend and stranger.” *God bless you. God keep you. And may God hold us all in those almighty hands of love.” Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC 3:53 Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Press Release Service A medida que aprendemos a ajustar nuestras vidas dada la realidad del coronavirus y para ayudar a hacer nuestra parte para frenar su propagación practicando el distanciamiento social, les invito a que cada semana se unan a mí para cultivar un “hábito de gracia”.

Church pantries help Diocese of Indianapolis step up food ministries…

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Belleville, IL AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Press Release Service COVID-19, [Diocese of Indianapolis] In 2016, parishioners at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Martinsville, Indiana, built a tiny wooden pantry in a lighted alcove just outside the front door and hung out a sign saying, “Take what you need. Donate what you can.” And so the Little Free Pantry was born.Four years later, the pantry is one of several feeding ministries affiliated with Diocese of Indianapolis churches that are still functioning in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.Donations from Martinsville, Indiana, residents help restock the Little Food Pantry for Easter. Photo: Peggy Miller“I have encountered multiple people making withdrawals and seen the desperation in their faces and heard it in their voices,” Steve Speth, who runs the pantry, wrote in a recent letter to supporters.Others food ministries fighting hunger in the diocese include The Storehouse Food Pantry, a sizable ecumenical ministry operating at the former site of St. John’s, Speedway; the Mid-North Food Pantry, an ecumenical venture housed in the outreach center at Trinity, Indianapolis; Sister Joanna’s Table at St. Paul’s in Evansville; and the virtual shelf-stocking work of parishioners at St. Matthew’s, Indianapolis.The economic dislocation caused by the pandemic has intensified the need for feeding ministries, even as necessary safety precautions have made such ministries harder to conduct.Rich Hoerger, who manages The Storehouse Food Pantry, said last Saturday’s distribution to 273 families, totaling some 1,165 people, was the largest in the pantry’s history, easily eclipsing the 190 families with 928 members served last Thanksgiving.The pantry was ready for the influx, however, largely because Hoerger watches the news. “I’d go home, turn on the TV, and then I’d call up the volunteers and say, maybe we should pack another 40 boxes.”He did that twice, and the pantry had almost exactly the right number of boxes ready when cars began to roll, just a few at a time, into the former church building’s parking lot on Saturday.“We had our regulars and then some,” he said. “There were a lot of people we’d never seen before.”St. Matthew’s in Indianapolis is in the unique position of having a commercial kitchen, but no on-site food pantry. The parish is home to We Run This, a culinary entrepreneurship program that helps young people learn culinary and business skills. The program, which St. Matthew’s helps sustain through a partnership with the Kheprw Institute, an Indianapolis community empowerment organization, has maintained enough customers to keep its doors open during the pandemic.“The kitchen has various vendors it works with — a food truck, ice cream guy, a guy who runs a hot dog stand, a new caterer — and they are going in and filling those orders,” says the Rev. Frank Impicciche, rector at St. Matthew’s. “They cook, they package, and then people who ordered it come to the door.”The parish has had to be more creative in helping to supply two local food pantries on the east side, Community Outreach Ministry East Side (COME) at Cumberland First Baptist Church and Irvington Community Advocacy Network (ICAN).“We didn’t want to have people driving around, buying things and dropping them off,” Impicciche said, so parishioners went online. Through Amazon, Walmart and other merchants, they supplied COME with paper products, laundry detergent and toiletries and ICAN with canned goods, fruits and vegetables.Sister Joanna’s Table, a Saturday community meal at St. Paul’s, Evansville, has converted its sit-down dinner to a bag lunch program since the pandemic took hold.“For the past five Saturdays, while the halls remained empty, devoid of the tables filled with guests, congregations have been providing to-go meals, sometimes hot in takeout boxes, other times bag lunches,” said the Rev. Holly Rankin Zaher, rector at St. Paul’s. “Instead of serving teams of 10 to 15 people, congregations work to minimize exposure and work with a skeleton crew. Instead of a food service line, guests are served through the door with staff running a to-go meal and some bread out to people or cars as they stop by to discourage people congregating.”Sister Joanna’s Table has been in the area for over 25 years, Zaher said, and it is still feeding people. “Volunteers masked and gloved are making it all work.”The Mid-North Food Pantry is one of the few feeding ministries that is still able to offer clients some element of choice. The pantry has moved its operations from the basement of the Trinity Outreach Center into the rear parking lot for shifts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Clients receive tickets for time entrance and have a chance to consult with volunteer staff about the contents of the bags they receive.The Rev. Julia Whitworth, rector at Trinity, Indianapolis, said the parish has shifted resources once devoted to its temporarily discontinued Sunday hot meal program to the food pantry, which is now the only in-person, on-site ministry occurring at Trinity.“We believe more people can get more sustaining assistance through groceries than through one hot meal on Sundays,” she said. The pantry, which usually serves 150 to 200 clients a month, served 600 clients in March. Most clients arrive on foot, Whitworth said.The pinch created by food shortages is being felt in cities big and small. Before the pandemic, the Little Food Pantry used to get stocked three or four times a week. Now, thanks in part to a grant from the Morgan County Community Foundation, it is being stocked twice a day. The set of shelves in the alcove near the front door is sometimes untended, but Speth said visitors — five to 10 each day — leave notes:“thank you and god bless you, I don’t know what we would have done”“thank you so much, even addicts need love”“we would not have eaten today without you” In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Hopkinsville, KY Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Washington, DC Rector Tampa, FL New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Collierville, TN Director of Music Morristown, NJ Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Shreveport, LA Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Curate Diocese of Nebraska TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Food and Faith Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Knoxville, TN Tags The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET center_img Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Submit an Event Listing This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Associate Rector Columbus, GA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Professor Ken Mills of Queens Cancer Research Centre said crowdfunding could be important in supporting pilot projects which lead on to larger projects.“Funding for small scale projects can be difficult to obtain and that’s why we’re using technology to create a platform in essence to digitally disrupt how funding for early stage cancer research is sourced,”said Professor Mills.Professor Mills said supporting small projects can speed up the introduction of new cancer drugs by up to 12 years. In exchange for donations the public will receive rewards such as invitations to Cancer Focus NI events and lab tours.According to ResearchFunder NI’s website, if the minimum target for a particular project is not met the funds pledged by individuals are not drawn down.

Fire Ant Warning Reminder for Out-of-State Hay Purchases

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Fire Ant Warning Reminder for Out-of-State Hay Purchases SHARE The Indiana State Department of Agriculture, in coordination with the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, is asking industry partners to help prevent the movement  of fire ants into Indiana through baled hay purchased from quarantined areas out of state.Recent drought conditions in many areas of the U.S have resulted in an increased demand for hay, potentially from suppliers within areas of the country that may be under quarantine for the imported fire ant, including most Southeastern states.The ants can not only be aggressive with their stings, but destructive to crop plants and, depending on the size of their mounds, damaging to farm equipment.Under USDA regulations, in quarantine areas, baled hay and straw that is in direct contact with the ground or contains soil may not be moved outside of the quarantine area. Still, hay that meets certain requirements in the quarantine area may not be regulated or may not have movement restrictions.A map of the quarantined area, as well as a list of questions and answers, plus simple management practices to reduce the chance of fire ant infestation, can be found online.Additionally, Indiana has a comprehensive website dedicated to the latest developments on our state’s efforts in response to the 2012 Drought. Visit www.in.gov/drought/ for more information on disaster declarations, impact issues, assistance programs and additional resources for producers.Source: ISDA By Andy Eubank – Sep 10, 2012 Home Indiana Agriculture News Fire Ant Warning Reminder for Out-of-State Hay Purchases Previous articleSeed Consultants Market Oulook with Gary Wilhelmi 9/10/12Next articleCorn Harvest Progresses even with Recent Rains Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Mars’ Perseverance successfully touches down on Mars

first_imgPetmal/iStockBy CATHERINE THORBECKE, ABC News(NEW YORK) — NASA’s Perseverance rover successfully touched down on Mars Thursday afternoon, as part of one of the agency’s most ambitious deep-space missions to search for signs of ancient life on the red planet.The rover’s voyage will also help pave the way for future human exploration of Mars.Perseverance launched from the Florida coast last July, and after a seven-month journey through the cosmos, is scheduled to touch down on Mars’ Jezero Crater at 3:55 p.m. ET on Thursday.How to watchThe rover’s entry, descent and landing on Mars will broadcast live on NASA’s website and YouTube channel, with coverage commencing at 2:15 p.m. ET. Special Spanish language programming — a first from NASA for a planetary landing — kicked off at 2:30 p.m. ET.It takes a little over 11 minutes for signals to travel from Mars to Earth, so the “live” coverage will have that delay. The riskiest portion of the mission, when the rover begins its entry on Mars (dubbed the “seven minutes of terror,” according to NASA engineers), is expected to begin at around 3:38 p.m. ET.The complexities of deep-space communications could delay when mission controllers on Earth confirm parts of Perseverance’s landing, NASA said, but also noted that the rover has the ability to land safely without communications to Earth using autonomous, pre-programmed landing instructions. Additional communications, expected in the hours and days after the landing event, should provide more details on how the rover fared.“Mars is hard and we never take success for granted,” Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate at NASA, said during a Tuesday news conference.Zurbuchen added that they will land on Mars “with cameras on, so the entire world is inspired with us as we do new and tough things and demonstrate these new technologies.”“Because whether it’s on the red planet or here at home on our blue marble, science can bring us together and create solutions to challenges that seem impossible at first,” Zurbuchen said.Touching down at ‘the most challenging Martian terrain ever targeted for a landing’Thursday’s landing is the culmination of over a decade of work, but there is still no guarantee the landing will go smoothly — only about 50% of all previous Mars landing attempts have succeeded, according to NASA.Zurbuchen said in a statement that Peseverance is “focused scientifically on finding out whether there was ever any life on Mars in the past.”“To answer this question, the landing team will have its hands full getting us to Jezero Crater — the most challenging Martian terrain ever targeted for a landing,” he added.The Jezero Crater is the site where an ancient river flowed into a lake on Mars, scientists believe, and where signs of ancient life may have been best preserved.“The Perseverance team is putting the final touches on the complex choreography required to land in Jezero Crater,” Jennifer Trosper, the deputy project manager for the mission at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in a statement. “No Mars landing is guaranteed, but we have been preparing a decade to put this rover’s wheels down on the surface of Mars and get to work.”The rover is also equipped with new technology that lets it target its landing site more accurately and avoid hazards autonomously, according to NASA.Mission goalsPerseverance — which was named by a seventh grader who won an essay contest — is the fifth rover NASA has sent to the red planet, and the most advanced.The six-wheeled rover is about the size of a car and the mission duration as of now is set for at least one Martian year, or 687 Earth days.Astrobiology is at the core of the mission’s goals, and Perseverance is tasked with searching for signs of ancient microbial life on Mars. It will also collect carefully selected rock and sediment samples with the goal of eventually returning them to Earth.Moreover, the rover will collect data on the planet’s geology and climate — paving the way for eventual human exploration. There is also an experiment called MOXIE that will see whether it is possible to manufacture oxygen in the Martian atmosphere.Perseverance also has a helicopter, dubbed “Ingenuity,” that is expected to become the first aircraft to attempt a powered, controlled flight on another planet.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
