first_imgIn sport mistakes will be made, games will be lost and passions will run high. But in rugby, we pride ourselves on the good grace in which we roll with the punches. Let’s keep it that way.This was published in the May 2013 edition of Rugby World. Click here to find out what’s in the current issue. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS By Bea Asprey“WALKING AROUND the ground with my winners’ medal is something I shall never forget. I felt like a rock star.”These are the words of Sam Warburton after Wales’ 30-3 defeat of England on the final day of the Six Nations. Humble and classy, it should be noted that Warburton may have “felt” like a rock star, but he didn’t act like one.Warburton, though, has been the victim of a worrying trend taking hold in rugby. Too often we are seeing players, coaches and officials abused. It is a cruel and ugly trait, and has no place in our sport.The growth of social media has given people more opportunity and confidence to contribute a worthless two pennies while hiding behind the safety net of anonymity. No one is immune; if you voice an opinion, you’re laying yourself open to cutting criticism and personal attack.I’m as big an advocate of Twitter as the next fan. It’s a privilege to have access to the game’s biggest stars and to witness friendly banter between both team-mates and opponents. But it’s a privilege that we will certainly lose if the harsh jibes continue, proven by the fact that Scotland back Nick De Luca, Warburton’s father, Jez, and English pundit Brian Moore have all suspended their accounts at one time or another having been subjected to unacceptable taunting.center_img On the evening of Super Saturday, the thunder rolled in and so did the jokes: “Was that a giant wheel falling off a chariot?” read one tweet.The ability to have a joke and a beer with your opponents after a match is a source of pride and what makes rugby so unique. But when the line is crossed by a minority who wish ill on individuals and their families, it threatens to spoil the face of rugby and the sport’s ethos for everyone.And it’s not limited to online abuse either. Cian Healy received a ‘violent letter’ while in camp with Ireland following his stamp on Dan Cole, while Moore was called an array of expletives in his 400-yard walk from his Cardiff hotel to the Millennium Stadium before the title decider.last_img read more

Southwestern Virginia Bishop Mark Bourlakas, whose diocese coordinated the event, can be seen standing at the back of the audience. Photo: Connor B. Gwin[Diocese of Southwestern Virginia — Lexington, Virginia] More than 150 community members crowded a middle school cafeteria in Lexington, Virginia, Sept. 13 to hear a lecture on race and civil discourse presented by Wornie Reed, director of the Race and Social Policy Research Center at Virginia Tech and professor of sociology and Africana studies there.The event was coordinated by the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia and co-sponsored by 10 community groups and ecumenical faith partners.Reed’s lecture covered his work studying racial bias by police in Montgomery County, Virginia, as well as his proposed framework for discussing race.“There is a great need to have productive conversations about race and … quite often these dialogues are uncomfortable,” Reed said. In fact, he argued, merely talking about racism is “supremely unproductive.”Instead, Reed called for a focus on the institutionalized practice of racism. Using such an approach means “we can discuss these issues quite freely and across racial lines,” he said.The talk was the first of a three-part series hosted by the diocese entitled “Pursuing the Beloved Community: A Continuing Conversation on Race.”Plans to facilitate a conversation on racial division in southwest Virginia began after the last General Convention when then newly elected Presiding Bishop Michael Curry announced he would make racial reconciliation a focus of his term. The release in May of this year of the church’s “Becoming Beloved Community” resources, as well as the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, reinforced the importance of these events.Southwestern Virginia Bishop Mark Bourlakas recently told the diocese that diocesan staff had planned a series of events across the diocese on the topic of racial reconciliation. “The tragic events in Charlottesville have strengthened our resolve to be the hands and feet of Christ in our communities, urging one another onward in the mission of God,” he wrote. “The work of reconciliation is very hard, very necessary, and our duty as followers of Jesus Christ.”The white supremacist rally and violence in Charlottesville Aug. 12 brought more attention to the issue of racial reconciliation and the rise in racist rhetoric in the past several years. The debate is not only about city parks and statues, but also the sanctuaries of churches across the United States.One such church is R.E. Lee Memorial Episcopal Church in Lexington, which has been in a heated debate for two years over the future of the parish’s name.Curry highlighted the new urgency that has emerged following the events in Charlottesville in a meeting with Episcopalians in that city last week. “The bitter, painful reality of what we have called and known to be racism, which never went away, was like a scab was ripped off Aug. 12, and the whole country saw it,” he said during his visit.This harsh reality was the focus of Reed’s lecture as he appealed to the facts of institutionalized racism over a conversation about individual actions.“There is a widely held assumption that individual prejudice leads to racism. … But where does prejudice come from? No one is born prejudiced,” Reed said. “I would argue that we have racist orientations, activities and policies [in this country] that lead people to think a certain way.”The next lecture, which will focus on racial profiling and police use of force, is scheduled for Oct. 25 at the Northwest Community Center in Roanoke, Virginia. More information will be posted here.The unedited recording of Reed’s lecture is here. All the events will be edited into smaller portions for use in parish formation classes.— The Rev. Canon Connor B. Gwin is the canon for social engagement and Christian formation in the Diocese of Southwestern Virginia.

Harper Lane is an infill residential development built on a vacant ‘L’ shaped site – ‘leftover’ land wrapping around a 1930s telephone exchange. The client was a joint venture partnership between Neometro Projects and Icon Developments. Their brief was for a commercially viable residential development, working with an economical construction budget. Emphasis was also placed on achieving a high quality of amenity for the occupiers and responding to the concerns of the adjoining residential neighbourhood.The project provides 65 residential apartments and 1 commercial tenancy in 2 buildings, varying in height from 3 to 6 storeys. The site has 3m fall from the northern boundary towards Inkerman Street, allowing the lower levels to be ‘cut in’, with a café, a relocated substation and the upper basement car park on grade at the Inkerman St frontage while first floor apartments access the garden level at the rear.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrath The architectural response is a repetitive, economical design which re-visits the modernist model of dual aspect apartments with external gallery walkway access, creating opportunities for natural ventilation and daylight penetration that are not achievable with standard internal double loaded corridors. The predominant plan type of one bedroom apartments has bathrooms abutting walkways, providing a ‘buffer’ to bedrooms. Openable windows above entry doors achieve cross ventilation without loss of privacy.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrath Externally black detailing and areas of natural timber relieve a simple palette of grey and white precast concrete. Robust elevations are enlivened by external blinds in 2 shades of green, and climbing vines on the facades. The Inkerman Street elevation responds to the simplicity of the adjoining Exchange building with a horizontal emphasis created by an asymmetrical composition of projecting ‘off form’ balconies, and horizontal GRC blades on the west façade. Internally the compact apartment layouts feel more spacious due to higher than standard ceiling heights and the use of sliding screens as room dividers. Interior fitouts reflect the external building aesthetic with concrete floors and black joinery, and a ‘punch’ of colour provided as a detail.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrath The project aimed to facilitate a sense of community within the development and to integrate with the existing neighbourhood. The small café, creating activity at street level, is located next to the entry walkway to maximize opportunities for interaction. Balconies overlook the walkway for improved security, and building access is split into 3 circulation zones to reduce corridor lengths with a maximum of 5 apartment entries per floor from each access point. A communal garden was created along the northern boundary, beneath a row of established trees that were kept to maintain existing screening between the site and adjoining residences.Save this picture!© Shannon McGrath A 6 star energy rating was predominantly achieved through the use of passive solar design principles, including north facing glazing to many of the units, and exposed concrete floors and shared thermal mass. External shading of glazing and walls and cross-ventilation to all units minimises reliance on air conditioning. Rainwater is harvested for toilet flushing and irrigation of the drought tolerant communal garden during the establishment period.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessPortland State University’s School of Architecture launches Center for Public Intere…ArticlesUIO Tullinkvartalet – New University Building for the Faculty of Law at the Universi…Unbuilt ProjectProject locationAddress:St. Kilda, Victoria, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. KERRY’S largest charity event, the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle, was embroiled in controversy last week after one of the charities nominated to receive money from the fundraiser declined to accept a cheque at the event’s annual dinner dance. It is understood that there is a dispute about the amount of money raised by the Diabetes Service, the intended recipient, in advance of the charity cycle.Secretary of Kerry Diabetes Service Ann Murphy and other members of the organisation attended the dinner dance where over ‚€172,000 was shared out between four charity organisations. However, Kerry Diabetes Service refused to accept their cheque from the organising committee.The money to be shared out comprised money raised by each of the charities in advance of the Ring of Kerry Cycle plus an equal share of the money collected on the day of the event.

The other three recipients of money from this year’s fundraiser – the Christy Brown Centre in Tralee, the South Kerry Life Education Mobile Unit and the Irish Handicapped Children’s Pilgrimage Trust – all accepted their cheques on the night.Chairperson of the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle Committee Denis Geaney said the uncollected money has been lodged in a bank account for the Kerry Diabetes Services.‘It is up to them to accept it. I was disappointed they did not accept the cheque but this has nothing to do with us as a committee, he said.Mr Geaney, a former winner of the Kerry Person of the Year Award, confirmed that over ‚€47,000 had been divided equally between the four charities from money raised on the day of the cycle.last_img read more

first_imgSystematic change needed to enable sector to reach its potential, report finds The report indicates that people are also concerned that the social sector which provides the infrastructure for community action is not fulfilling its potential either. 57% of British adults believe that charities are understaffed, while 35% say they think charities are wasteful and 31% that there are too many charities in the UK.The report argues that if charities are to fully achieve their potential, and to harness the community spirit that Britons showed was possible through the first lockdown, systemic change is needed. 40% of British people think Britain would be a better place if charities and community groups had more involvement in decision making at a national level, while 42% agree having additional support from government would help charities achieve more.The report identifies three core problems that are stopping charities, community groups and wider civil society from fulfilling their potential:Civil society is undervalued and overlooked. The value that the public places on charities isn’t reflected in the numbers that drive decisions in our country, with official figures under-estimating the value of charities by £160 billion.Civil society is too often viewed in isolation, or simply ignored altogether. Civil society is often absent from discussions about the future of Britain, in Westminster, in business circles and in the news. Civil society is mentioned around 5 times fewer than the private sector in political party manifestos, while charity CEOs make up just 1% of BBC Question Time panellists.There is a mismatch between the supply of money, time and effort delivered through the social sector and the demand that exists for support. The way civil society is structured sometimes means it fails to provide for those who need it most.The new two-year Law Family Commission on Civil Society aims to tackle these challenges. Former Cabinet Secretary Lord Gus O’Donnell and Commission Chair said:“At the start of this crisis the nation’s spirits were lifted by the multiple acts of kindness we saw. But that spirit is rapidly ebbing away. The Prime Minister realises this which is why he ordered the Kruger review. The public and charities are equally aware of time running out. The spending review spelt out how the economy and public services are expected to evolve but said little about the role of the civic sector. If we are to build back better and level up we need urgently to unleash the full potential of this vital sector.”Pro Bono Economics CEO Matt Whittaker said:“The public clearly think that the nation’s charities and community groups are a force for good. But there is a sense too that they might do even more. Covid has highlighted the benefits, but also the difficulties, of matching the efforts of volunteers, philanthropists and charity teams to the significant and varying demand for support that exists across the country. Directing the potential of civil society in the right direction is an enormous task, which requires the energy not just of charities and community groups, but of business and all parts of government too. The good news is, getting this right and fully involving civil society in plans around building back better and levelling up has the potential to unleash a powerful force for renewal.” Melanie May | 1 December 2020 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1  99 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1center_img Tagged with: research People’s community spirit has showed signs of waning during the second lockdown while systematic change is needed if charities are to reach their potential, research has found.The report, Civil Action, published today by Pro Bono Economics to mark the start of the new two-year Law Family Commission on Civil Society, shows strong public support for the work of charities, particularly for their role in helping the vulnerable in society. However, it also suggests that there is significant room for improvement in the way the UK’s social sector works.The polling, conducted by YouGov, shows that 84% of people in the UK believe charities play an important role in society today, with 50% of British adults saying charities and community groups played a very important role supporting society during the pandemic.However, while the research suggests 18 million people in England helped friends or neighbours with tasks like shopping and dog walking during the first lockdown, according to Pro Bono Economics estimates, 6 million fewer people in England have volunteered or supported their neighbours during the second lockdown, with only 26% of people having done so since the start of October.

News AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa News Help by sharing this information After contributing to the emergence and (so far insufficient) consolidation of media freedom in Tunisia, partly by creating the Tunis bureau in 2011, RSF is developing its activities throughout the Maghreb.Previously run from RSF headquarters in Paris, the North Africa work will be conducted from Tunis under the leadership of Yasmine Kacha, the bureau chief. It will be her job to reinforce advocacy activities and carry out concrete projects in the field in response to the many challenges in these four countries.Providing news and information is still a high-risk activity in Algeria and Morocco, where the authorities cite threats to national security, national interests, the head of state or the monarchy as pretexts for persecuting independent journalists. The Tunisian authorities no longer hesitate to prosecute reporters on trumped-up charges of supporting terrorism. And the fate of journalists during the recent months of extreme violence in Libya has only emphasized the urgent need for greater efforts to protect freedom of information in the region.“Expanding the activities of our Tunis bureau is part of the strategic reinforcement of our capacities in North Africa, an extremely important region for our organization,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Our activities will be concentrated on three main areas: defending and reinforcing media independence, lobbying for an end to criminal proceeding against journalists, and combating impunity for those responsible for violence and abuses against the region’s media personnel.”North Africa bureau chief Yasmine Kacha added: “We will combine policy-influencing strategies with assistance activities in order to help Moroccan, Algerian, Tunisian and Libyan journalists to work freely and in the hope that the media will finally be able to play their watchdog role to the full.”Opened after the fall of the Ben Ali regime, the Tunis bureau’s main initial aim was to assist media reform in Tunisia. RSF campaigned for the inclusion of article 31 on free speech, article 32 on access to information and article 127 on the Broadcasting Communication Agency in the January 2014 constitution. It also campaigned for the exclusive application of Decree-Law No. 115-2011 (and not the criminal code) to media cases, and urged police and journalists to resume a long-interrupted dialogue.RSF has organized a score of seminars for professional and non-professional journalists on protecting personal data, physical safety and covering human rights-related issues. It also conducted two public information campaigns – “Free until when?” in 2012 and “Freedom of information hanging by a thread” in 2015 – which were very visible in all the media and throughout the country and which drew attention to the importance of preserving freedom of information, one of the key achievements of the 2011 revolution.An international NGO defending and promoting freedom of information worldwide from its headquarters in Paris, RSF has international bureaux in 14 cities including Washington, Brussels, Berlin and Madrid. It recently opened a bureau in Rio de Janeiro to cover Latin America and plans to open another in Hong Kong in the near future. The Tunis bureau is its main branch in the Arab world. RSF also has correspondents in 130 countries.North Africa DeskTel : (00216) 71 24 76 78Mail : [email protected] to go further AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa February 29, 2016 – Updated on March 8, 2016 RSF develops North Africa work from expanded Tunis bureau Organisation May 18, 2021 Find out more Algeria pressures reporters by delaying renewal of accreditation RSF_en May 12, 2021 Find out more Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria Harassment of Algerian reporters intensifies in run-up to parliamentary elections Newslast_img read more

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Coronavirus Foreclosure housing market 2020 Underwater Homes Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, News Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011. Previously, she served as managing editor of DS News and Southern Distinction, a regional lifestyle publication. Her work has appeared in a variety of print and online publications, including Consumers Digest, Dallas Style and Design, DS News and DSNews.com, MReport and theMReport.com. She holds degrees in journalism and art from the University of Georgia. The housing markets most vulnerable to impacts from the Coronavirus pandemic tend to be located along the West Coast, clustered around New York, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C., and numerous markets in the Chicago area, according to a special report from ATTOM Data Solutions.ATTOM assessed 406 counties for the share of homes under threat of foreclosure, the share of underwater homes, and the percentage of local wages necessary to cover “major homeownership expenses.”In 47 of the 50 most at-risk counties, more than one in 750 homes faced foreclosure in Q1 2020. The highest rate was in Cumberland County, New Jersey, where one in every 180 properties faced a foreclosure filing in Q1.In 36 of the 50 most at-risk counties, at least 15% of homes with a mortgage owed more than their home was worth as of Q1 2020. In Sussex County, New Jersey, 39% of mortgages were underwater, and in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, 36% were underwater.In all but seven of the most at-risk counties at least 30% of local wages would be required to cover major homeownership costs, such as a mortgage, insurance, and property taxes. Westchester County, New York, fared the worst with 77.1% of local wages necessary to cover these costs.

The Brush Arbor Singing was held on the grounds of City Hall on Wednesday night, the Fall Festival on Thursday night and the Peanut Butter Festival on Saturday.“Our city workers do an outstanding job all the time but did an exceptional job with the big crowd we had in town Saturday,” he said. “There were 32 nine-gallon containers of trash and they had the grounds free of trash Sunday morning. They do a great job and don’t get the recognition they deserve.” The Brundidge City Council passed a resolution at its Tuesday meeting that set the parameters for 2015 Revenue Refunding Warrants.Britt Thomas, city manager, said the city had issued its Utility Revenue Warrants in the total amount of $7,785,000 and has an outstanding principal of $6,605,000.To realize the present value savings due to reduced interest rates and to improve cash flow for the city, Thomas said it is advisable to refund all of the Refunded Warrants in order to refund the outstanding indebtedness of the city and pay the costs of issuance and sale of the Warrants.
