Heaslip insists Ireland’s confidence is still high

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The fact that Ireland scored three tries to France’s one is certainly a positive they will take to Murrayfield with them in two weeks time when they face struggling Scotland, and Heaslip said: “We were clinical, the first two times we were in their 22 I think we scored I can’t really say too much because I have to look back on the game. We created chances and when we held onto the ball we posed a lot of problems.”Ireland’s first scorer was winger Fergus McFadden, who had been targeting the try-line all week after missing an opportunity to cross the line on his international debut against Italy last week. His touchdown got Ireland on the scoreboard in under five minutes, and he said: “It was unbelievable for me, obviously the first try for Ireland and it was a great start to the day. On the whole, we performed a lot better than last week. We finished off the chances that we were squandering over in Rome and we’re going to try and take the positives out of this going over to Scotland in a couple of weeks time.” Try-scorers Jamie Heaslip and Fergus McFaddenNO 8 Jamie Heaslip played a try-scoring role in his first game of the Six Nations on Sunday in the 22-25 defeat to France. Despite a disappointing and frustrating loss, Heaslip insisted that confidence was still high within the Ireland squad despite a run of poor results, and that they’re not far off from being back at their best.“We’re on the cusp of playing the very best rugby,” said Heaslip. “We’ve a very good defensive system, and we can take a lot of pressure from teams. Around the ruck area we can cause a lot of problems, around the tackle we’re very strong and on the flip side in attack we can play a very expansive game.“There is no lack of belief or confidence. We have an exceptionally good group of players. One of the main reasons I stayed around is that I think we are on the verge of doing something great and playing some unbelievable rugby.”last_img read more

I understand something of the personal cost of her ministry, and pray that her retirement from this office will be a source of deep blessing for her and her family.  Well done, good and faithful servant.”The president of the House of Deputies is elected every three years to serve throughout the triennium. Anderson was vice president of the House of Deputies and a lay deputy from the Diocese of Michigan when she was elected at the 2006 General Convention to serve as president of the House of Deputies. She was re-elected at the 2009 General Convention.She is a past president of the Standing Committee in the Diocese of Michigan and as a lay deputy she served on the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget & Finance (PB&F) for four terms and served as its president for two terms.Since being elected as president of the House of Deputies, Anderson has served as vice president of the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council, the elected body that carries out programs and policies adopted by the General Convention and oversees the ministry and mission of the church. The president also appoints the lay and clergy members to most committees, commissions, agencies and boards that serve the church.The process for electing a new president, as well as a new vice president, was announced May 24 and is available here.A biography is available here.The full text of Anderson’s letter follows.Dear Deputies and First Alternates,I write to you for two reasons: to thank you for your support, friendship, prayers, challenges, brilliance and love that has inspired and humbled me during these 6 years and second, to let you know that I do not plan to stand for election as President of the House of Deputies for another term.The reason I am not seeking re-election is a simple one: I want to spend more time with my family. My husband, Glen, is retired. I want to be with him more. Our amazing son, Justin, lives with us and reminds us every single day, by his very existence, that God is a generous miracle maker. I want to celebrate Justin’s life by being with him every day. I want to bake cakes with my grandchildren and go to all their band concerts, soccer games and school plays. I want to have leisurely phone conversations with my daughters. You get the picture.By tomorrow, you will receive information on the process for electing a President and Vice President while we are in Indianapolis.I have been honored beyond measure to lead this house, and gratified to observe the many ways in which Deputies and Alternates serve and lead God’s Church, both when General Convention is in session and when it is not. Your voices resonate not only within the great representative diversity of General Convention, but also in our communities and in commissions during the triennium, in vestries, and in the leadership roles you hold in our congregations, dioceses and provinces. In my 21 years in the House, and my two terms as your president, I have been reminded again and again of our forebears’ wisdom in creating a system of governance that honors the simple theological truth that the Holy Spirit blows where she will, and that to discern God’s purposes, we must listen to the voices of all of the baptized.Please know that I will serve the House of Deputies as President at full capacity until the “gavel goes down” on July 12 in Indianapolis.Peace and blessings,Bonnie Anderson, D.D. President, The House of DeputiesAlmighty and everliving God, source of all wisdom and understanding, be present with those who take counsel in General Convention for the renewal and mission of your Church. Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right, and grant us both the courage to pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

I will keep thanking you through the convention. You have borne this office with so much grace and brilliance. I never really appreciated all your predecessors did, but I have been amazed at how you have taken the reins of leadership and public profession in so many ways since you took office. You have made the House of Deputies really matter between conventions by stepping forward with wisdom in your opinions and teaching on so many of the hard issues that have faced our church. Too often people just think “The Presiding Bishop,” and imagine she or he speaks for the church. Your constant presence, your publishing statements, criticisms, and profound challenges have really given witness to the fact that we, Americans in the United States and some provinces, are not a church of Bishops, rather the whole people of God. You have walked that in an incarnate way that has strengthened our church. In addition, I remain totally disgusted that the National Church does not put the President of the House of Deputies on salary. I also know how much and how long you have served as a volunteer in this capacity. For a church that pretends to honor clergy who are not bishops and lay people and has a leadership structure that demands so much from its leadership, this is without reason.Susan McGarry, sometime deputy from the Diocese of Michigan (1997, 2000, 2003) Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Tampa, FL Lori Brown says: Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Smithfield, NC Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MSlast_img read more

The Anatomy of Fear Quick tips for barbecue seasonBy Sloane Davis of  pancakesandpush-ups.comWith the 4th of July ushering in the plethora of outdoor barbecues and summer fun, I wanted to share some tips on how to enjoy a night out without worrying about adding on extra pounds.  It is a very common question I often get asked from clients, as they want to know how to handle their weight loss plan when they are going out for a night and not in control of their food.The last thing I want them to do is stress about a simple pleasure in life that will occur many times over.  After all, life is meant to be enjoyed and a night out should in no way be stressful when trying to lose weight.  This is what flexible dieting is all about: Not being a slave to your diet, and being able to enjoy any types of foods without feeling guilty.Sloane DavisWith that being said, eating a meal out can add up super fast and amount to thousands of calories very quickly.Here are some quick tips when you go out to your favorite barbecue bonanza:Tip 1: Try to limit as much fat as you can during the day.  If you can avoid it all together, even better.Why do you ask? Fat is what makes food taste good, and at 9 calories per gram, it adds ups fast.  To put things in perspective, 1 tablespoon of oil has 16 grams of fat.  If you think to have a salad with oil and vinegar, veggies sautéed with oil and garlic and a piece of grilled protein (grilled in more oil unless you ask for it dry) is a healthy meal option, know that it’s loaded with fat from all the oil.  That is about 400-500 calories just from the oil.  We didn’t get to the wine, bread, taste of dessert, and anything else you may have.  Yes, it all adds up super fast! I’m not saying to not enjoy your night, but rather, I am simply saying, save the fat for the big meal out. Balance is best.Tip 2: Focus on lean protein throughout the day.  Egg whites for breakfast, grilled chicken or shrimp for lunch, Greek yogurt or cottage cheese for a snack.    Most meals out are loaded with fat as I stated above and we all know how easy it is to digest lots of yummy carbs.  What most meals lack is protein, and while you may have some while you are dining out, we need a lot more than we think.  So load up during the day! I know it may not seem like fun eating a bit more boring and bland food, but you and your waistline will be thankful for it later.  You can do anything for one day in return for a great night out without the guilt and extra pounds!Tip 3: Limit carbs to vegetables, fruit, and other low carb options.  Vegetables are high in volume, meaning we get a lot for a little.  A lot of food, a lot of chewing, and a lot of fiber, which keeps you full, for very little calories.  Pair your lean protein from tip 2 above with an oversized salad for lunch.  Try to stay away from fattening dressings.  Berries are a great option for staying low carb.  Pair it with Greek yogurt for a delicious high protein snack.  Berries are high in fiber as well and are also high volume and low carb/calories.  Rice cakes are another low carb option that gives you a big bang for your buck.  I love the butter popcorn flavor – they have 8 grams of carbs, no fat and a good punch of fiber which will keep you full.Tip 4: Don’t skip your workout.  If you can’t do your normal exercise routine, try to incorporate at least 30 minutes of cardio in during the day.  It will offset the calories a bit and most likely put you in a healthier state of mind for the rest of the day.Tip 5: Try to drink as much water as possible, especially if you are planning on having a few cocktails in the evening.  While water is not a magic pill, it does make you feel fuller before a meal.  In addition, alcohol dehydrates you, so if you drink copious amount of water during the day, you will be ahead of the game later on.Tip 6: DON’T STRESS AND ENJOY THE NIGHT! One day is not going to deter progress in the long run.  Think about it this way – if you have been consistent with your goals for a year or any length of time, that is what shows progress, and one day/ night out does not impact that. After all, we didn’t gain all this weight in one night and we certainly are not going to lose weight going off plan for one night.  It’s important to look at the overall picture, the journey, and not the quick fix.Enjoy life, enjoy your health and fitness journey, make smart decisions, and remember, everything in moderation. Balance is key to any successful diet.I hope you will think of these tips and use them the next time you are going out.For more of my health and fitness tips visit the blog here.Sloane Davis is a Certified Nutritionist and Personal Trainer who has helped thousands of people, both men, and women, around the world get into top shape both mentally and physically.

TMO advises on Ofisa Treviranus big hit on Charlie Hodgson

first_imgSaturday Sep 8, 2012 TMO advises on Ofisa Treviranus big hit on Charlie Hodgson Last weekend London Irish’s Samoan forward Ofisa Treviranus was shown a yellow card by referee Wayne Barnes for a big tackle on Charlie Hodgson at Twickenham. The incident was referred to the TMO under the new law rulings in the Aviva Premiership. The second of the big London Double Header games proved to be a bit of a walkover for Saracens, who thumped London Irish 40-3, which Sarries debutant Chris Ashton scoring twice, and Brad Barritt and Nils Mordt also crossing.Flyhalf Charlie Hodgson became the first player to pass 2000 points in the Premiership, but not before he was smashed by Samoan bruiser Ofisa Treviranus in the first half.Wayne Barnes took advantage of the new laws as he referred it to the Telivision Match Official, who confirmed that foul play had taken place, as the tackle didn’t include appropriate use of the arms.A few minutes later Saracens wing Chris Ashton was also yellow carded in a similar manner, as he stuck his shoulder into Steven Shingler after the ball has been passed.While not everyone is in agreement about the trialing of the new laws surrounding the TMO – which includes them being able to adjudicate on forward passes in the lead up to tries, and to check if try scorers were in front of the kicker.While there is still room for intepretaion, it looks as though the weekend showed that it could go some way to stamping out foul play, and late shoulders in particular.What are your thoughts on the way it has been used so far, particularly around foul play?

Dexter Moren Associates (DMA) has unveiled Peel Place, a new £5 million development for Singaporean developer Favor Well Ltd, consisting of nine contemporary family-sized town houses aimed at the private rented market. This small-scale, design-led scheme has transformed a constricted 2059 sqm (0.21Ha) brownfield site near Earls Court, with light filled rooms flowing naturally onto outside terraces and gardens, perfect for families and entertaining. The design rethinks the London town house deliberately moving away from homes with rear gardens. Peel Place responds to the need for larger, family or extended family-sized, houses in the private rented sector, where the trend is for one and two bedroom flats. Save this picture!© Andy Stagg PhotographyThe development includes a new street frontage of two houses on Lillie Road with another seven houses forming a terrace behind, perpendicular to the road. The terrace fronts onto a ‘mews-style’ space with a shared access and thoughtful landscaping, whilst the Lillie Road frontage is set back to allow for front gardens and vehicle parking similar to other properties in the street.   Save this picture!Plan 0The external facades offer a play of high quality materials, elegantly proportioned shapes, and protruding and recessed planes to provide a strong rhythm and unified architectural expression across the mews whilst clearly identifying each property as an individual home.  DMA have deliberately avoided a pastiche of the various surrounding architectural styles, combining simple compositions with traditional materials and elements to add a distinctly modern chapter in the history and development of Lillie Road.  Save this picture!© Andy Stagg PhotographySave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Andy Stagg PhotographyInside the properties, DMA’s design for a full height atrium stairwell is one of the stand-out elements, linking together the internal and external spaces of the house in a light-filled central core.

Passion tells the story of Giorgio, a handsome young army captain in 1860’s Italy, who finds himself torn between Clara, his beautiful young lover, and Fosca, the unbeautiful, sickly woman who challenges his notion of what love is. With an achingly beautiful score, Passion delves into the mystifying tangle of desire, obsession, lust and madness that comprise love.Passion is supported, in part, by the David Lee Foundation. Passion is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.comMusic The John Walz, Andrew Sords, and Timothy Durkovic TrioFEB 21, 8PMStyle: ClassicalThis glorious trio will play an all-Beethoven concert highlighting some of the composer’s best works, including the Spring Sonata, Cell Sonata No.2, Epic Trios, and the Archduke Trio.Delirium MusicumMAR 7, 8PMStyle: New MusicDelirium Musicum is a vibrant self-conducted string ensemble of 13 musicians that tackles a daring repertoire.
