Heyneke Meyer quits as Springbok coach

first_img Proud man: Heyneke Meyer says he will leave his job with his integrity intact LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS What will have ushered Meyer towards the door was a poor Rugby Championship, where they lost in Durban to Argentina but also criticism that he showed too much loyalty to the World Cup winners Victor Matfield, Fourie du Preez and Jean De Villiers. Meyer was also battling vocal critics back home over his commitment to racial transformation – the number of black players picked in the Springboks squad – proving the Springbok role has unique challenges to any other in world rugby.Too loyal: Meyer was criticised in some quarters for blind faith to ageing playersWhoever the next coach is, they will inherit the spine of a very fine side, with Lood de Jager, Eben Etzebeth, Jesse Kriel, Damien de Allende, Handre Pollard and Jan Serfontein all expected to be at the heart of South Africa’s building for Japan.

I’ve always maintained that my only motivation was to serve my country and to do what was best for the Springboks.”last_img read more

Praying for the Anglican primates

first_img Youth Minister Lorton, VA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Featured Events Rector Tampa, FL The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Anglican Communion, [Anglican Communion News Service] The Community of St. Anselm, the new religious community of 36 young men and women from around the world, are in Canterbury this week to pray for the primates of the Anglican Communion as they continue their deliberations.The Community is composed of 16 residential and 20 non-residential young people. Seventeen of them have made the journey from their base at Lambeth Palace – the London home of the Archbishop of Canterbury – to Canterbury Cathedral where the primates are meeting.Their praying presence is just one example of the global prayer that is being focused on the meeting. In addition to the primates’ own prayers, members of their support staff, Anglican Communion officials, supporters and members of the cathedral congregation are gathering at 7.30 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. each day for Morning Prayer and Evensong during which prayers are said for the primates.Prayers are also being said in cathedrals, abbeys, monasteries, parish churches and by individuals across the world of all denominations.Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the U.K., tweeted his followers to tell them he was praying for “grace and wisdom for friends meeting and deliberating this week” at the Primates Meeting. He also retweeted a link to the prayer resources on the Primates2016 website under the hashtag #OneFamily.“It’s a tremendous privilege to add our prayers to those of Jesus that all whom the Father has given him shall be one,” the Rev. Anders Litzell, prior of the Community of St. Anselm, said. “As a community we had nothing in common at the start of this year except the unrelenting desire to be shaped into the likeness of Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to the glory of the Father.“So we have experienced on a small but personal scale the pain of division and disagreement. But we have also found real unity through the monastic virtues of humility under authority, mutual obedience, shared life and service to Christ in the face of the poor.”He added: “It is a true joy to be praying for the face and voice of Jesus to be increasingly revealed in each Primate and Province. We’ll be praying for the whole Body of Christ to reflect the simultaneous humility and glory of the Crucified and Risen Christ. We are delighted to show our love for the Church in this way.”Before the meeting began, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby asked people to pray for love and wisdom, “that the love of Christ for each of us, each of us who are sinners, each of us who fail, will so overwhelm us that we are able to love each other as we should; and wisdom that we would know the call and purpose of God, and in love and wisdom serve His world in the way He calls us to.”The secretary general of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon, called on people to pray daily for the Primates Meeting.A responsorial prayer and a series of collects has been published on the Primates2016 website.

Who benefits from million-pound charitable donations?

first_imgShe added: “This research is important because there’s very little reliable information about giving by the richest members of our society… Now we know that ‘million pound donors’ differ [from average donors] not just in the scale of their gifts, but in what they choose to support and how they go about making their gifts.” Of these, 64% were under £3 million but 12% were for £10 million or more. The five largest donations, worth £100 million or more, were all placed into trusts and foundations for distribution at a later date, rather than given directly to charities. Who benefits from million-pound charitable donations? The Coutts Million-Pound Donors Report was written by Beth Breeze of the CPHSJ. Described as “the first [report] to focus on million pound charitable donations”, it includes case studies of million pound donors and of charities that have received donations of this size. Howard Lake | 9 November 2008 | News Analysis of the largest charitable donations made in the UK shows that health charities, international aid/development organisations and higher education institutions were the main beneficiaries in 2006/07.The Coutts Million-Pound Donors Report, published to mark the launch of the new Centre for Philanthropy, Humanitarianism and Social Justice (CPHSJ) at the University of Kent, reveals that 193 gifts of £1 million or more were made in 2006/07, totaling £1.6 billion.

The really big one: Natural disasters or capitalism?

first_imgIn its July 20 issue, the New Yorker magazine published an article headlined “The Really Big One.”It dealt with one of the underground fault lines in the U.S. that will ultimately cause a really big earthquake. It was not about the San Andreas Fault, which is one most people know about, especially after the summer blockbuster movie “San Andreas.”Seattle is 54 miles northwest of Mount Rainier and the fault line called the Cascadia subduction zone.The article dealt with another fault line just north of the San Andreas, called the Cascadia Subduction Zone. This fault line runs north-south for 700 miles off the Pacific Northwest coast. It starts in northern California and continues alongside the states of Oregon and Washington and ends around Vancouver Island, Canada.It is called a “subduction zone” because it is a region of Earth where “one tectonic plate is sliding underneath … another. Tectonic plates are those slabs of mantle and crust that … rearrange the earth’s continents and oceans.”The New Yorker article is quite alarming. It makes a good argument that a major earthquake of epic proportions will surely hit the Pacific Northwest coast within the next 50 years. Actually, it could happen tomorrow. The earthquake will also trigger a massive tsunami, a tidal wave.The geological record shows that over the past 10,000 years, the average interval between Cascadia earthquakes has been 243 years. The last one was in 1700. Do the math.When — not if — the Cascadia earthquake hits, will it be “the big one,” for which the odds are one in three? Or will it be “the very big one,” which has a one in 10 chance of happening?Personally, if I lived in the area — if, for example, I were one of the 1.25 million people who live in Seattle, Wash., or Portland, Ore. — I would probably have had a very strong urge to pack my bags and move elsewhere as soon as I finished the New Yorker article.But more likely, I would start organizing to fight for danger preparedness.The article is important because it provides the science as to what happens when the Cascadia zone gives way. The “magnitude of the resulting quake will be somewhere between 8.0 and 8.6,” which is “the big one.”If the entire zone gives way at once, an event that seismologists call a full-margin rupture, the magnitude will be somewhere between 8.7 and 9.2. That’s “the very big one.”The article serves to alert the public that when the rupture happens, “that region will suffer the worst natural disaster in the history of North America.”It will be worse than the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. It will be worse than Hurricane Katrina.According to Federal Emergency Management Agency projections, which by any objective measure are vast underestimations, the earthquake and the tsunami will kill about 13,000 people. Another 30,000 will be injured; a million people will be displaced; and over 2 million will need food and water. Electricity will be out for a long time, maybe for years. Buildings and homes will have collapsed in record numbers and problems of potable water will go on for a very long time afterward.The article makes the point of comparing the earthquake preparedness in Japan and in this West Coast region. Japan is one of the most earthquake-prepared countries in the world — yet 18,000 people died in the 2011 Tohoku earthquake. It devastated northeast Japan and led to the meltdown of a major nuclear power plant in Fukushima.A few years before this disaster, a Japanese geologist had tried to warn the country to prepare for a 9.0 magnitude earthquake. His alert went unheeded.The massive December 2004 earthquake off Sumatra, Indonesia, and resultant Indian Ocean tsunami killed nearly 250,000 people. Tsunami warnings did sound in many places, but with densely populated coastal regions and vacationers along thousands of miles of beaches, there was no time to reach safety.Katrina struck in 2005Almost 10 years ago, at the end of August 2005, Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana.Remember how people outside the area felt as we watched the horror unfolding on CNN? Remember the racist treatment of Black Louisianans, an earlier example of how Black lives do not matter under this system? Remember FEMA’s response to the crisis, the toxic housing, the displacement of decades-long residents of Louisiana to other states? Remember the role of the police in terrorizing rather than protecting the people?Hurricane Katrina was an example of how the capitalist system is incapable of and unwilling to deal with a major disaster. There is no concern for the lives of working people. Only profits are an issue.Scientists have been certain the Cascadia fault was destined to produce a disaster since the late 1980s. What has been done to safeguard the region’s population? Well, the New Yorker’s Kathryn Schulz reports that in Oregon, “It has been illegal since 1995 to build hospitals, schools, firehouses and police stations in the inundation zone.”That’s it. No new construction of these four types of buildings in one state. Otherwise, it’s a free-for-all.Under capitalism, the priority is private profit. There is a complete disregard for humanity.So businesses can create new housing developments, shopping malls, recreation areas and so on if they think there’s money to be made. And this is just what they’ve continued to do.Builders, the New Yorker reports, are required to merely consult with state geologists, and if they’re told their plan is unsafe, they ignore the advice and proceed to put the masses in harm’s way. Gentrification, after all, means big profits.At the same time, there’s no centralized disaster-preparedness plan or personnel, certainly nothing of the scope required. Tax breaks for big business take priority over funding to save lives. Wars, invasions and occupations get funded; earthquake safety does not.Because of this, when the earthquake and tsunami hit, children will die. The elderly will not be able to get out of the way. The disabled will have no access to escape.Some seismologists and journalists have warned the public. But that is not enough.Is there any other way? Of course there is. If we lived in a socialist society, planning and preparations would take top priority: carefully laid out evacuation routes; block-by-block communication plans; and backup power, water, medical and housing provisions in place for emergency.What if that’s not enough? What if there are entire communities that should be relocated right now, away from the coast, inland and onto higher ground? What if some beaches should be closed to summer tourism? What if highways and bridges ought to be rerouted?Under socialism, none of this would be impossible or outlandish. Under capitalism, none of it will happen.Still, something can be done. Class-conscious revolutionaries — communists — can point out that “the very big one,” the biggest disaster of all, is capitalism. Only organizing the necessary mass movement to fight for money for disaster preparedness — not for war or Wall Street — will resolve this looming crisis.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Todd Janzen: Is Ethanol Causing Pollution of Our Streams?

first_img Todd Janzen: Is Ethanol Causing Pollution of Our Streams? This morning while watching CNBC during my usual workout routine, I heard a story about how President Obama’s “Green Energy” policies have a dark side. The story specifically referred to the renewable fuels standard (RFS) requiring that gasoline sold in the U.S. contain a minimum percentage of ethanol. The “secret, dirty cost” supposedly caused by this policy is that acres of prairie and marginal farmland have been tilled up and planted to corn, allegedly increasing water pollution from chemicals and fertilizer.Further digging pointed to the source of this story. The Associated Press ran an article about the hidden costs of the United States’ ethanol policy, stating:The hills of southern Iowa bear the scars of America’s push for green energy: The brown gashes where rain has washed away the soil. The polluted streams that dump fertilizer into the water supply.As farmers rushed to find new places to plant corn, they wiped out millions of acres of conservation land, destroyed habitat and polluted water supplies, an Associated Press investigation found.Read the entire story here: Obama’s green energy drive comes from an unadvertised environmental cost. (link is: https://www.courier-journal.com/viewart/20131112/GREEN/311120025/AP-Investigation-Obama-s-green-energy-drive-comes-an-unadvertised-environmental-cost) By Todd Janzen – Nov 16, 2013 Home News Feed Todd Janzen: Is Ethanol Causing Pollution of Our Streams? Facebook Twitter Let the wisdom of U.S. “green energy” policy be debated. But please don’t assume that simply planting more corn means more water pollution. What about sorghum? I grew up in Kansas, which was once part of the sorghum belt. Due to biotech corn and soybeans, millions of acres that were once planted in sorghum are now planted to corn and soy. The latest USDA graph backs up my general observation. (Note: sorghum has been left behind in the biotech revolution). What about sorghum? I grew up in Kansas, which was once part of the sorghum belt. Due to biotech corn and soybeans, millions of acres that were once planted in sorghum are now planted to corn and soy. The latest USDA graph backs up my general observation. (Note: sorghum has been left behind in the biotech revolution). Here are the facts. U.S. corn production has increased in the past ten years, as reported by the USDA:Although a significant increase in corn acreage occurred in 2007, the year the ethanol mandate began, the big picture shows steady growth for more than the past decade. Note that this growth also coincides with the introduction of biotech corn around 1996.What the chart does not tell you is how the corn is being grown. There is a significant decrease in sediment runoff when corn is grown no-till versus conventional till. Has the increase in corn production also correlated with an increase in no-till practices? The AP does not tell us.Soybean acreage planted in the U.S. should also be considered. Total acreage of soybeans planted in the U.S. shows a significant drop in 2007, but the decade-long trend is a large increase in total acreage. Note that overall acreage planted has increased by 20 million acres since 1993. SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Finally, one should consider wheat production. How many acres of wheat have been converted to corn production in the past decade? A look at the chart suggests around 10 million fewer acres planted today than 1993:My point here is that it is too easy to simply infer that U.S. ethanol policy has caused a dramatic increase in water pollution from the loss of millions of acres of woods and prairie to corn. In the past decade, farmers have converted millions of acres that were once wheat and sorghum into more profitable corn. Farmers have also made huge strides in reducing run-off from cornfields thanks to biotech innovations.

Business Community Opposes Proposed Changes Outlined in Parking Study

first_img STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Members of the business community told Pasadena Now that recommended changes at city parking garages could hurt businesses that are already struggling to stay open during the pandemic.The changes would include the elimination of 90 minutes of free parking, elimination of free parking on holidays, a merchant validation program, and increasing the daily maximum parking rate to $12.On Tuesday, the Municipal Services Committee (MSC) heard a report by a consultant as part of an information item.MSC Committee members questioned the purpose and reason for commissioning the parking study in the first place.No data or analysis was presented during the information item.The committee, which is chaired by Vice Mayor Andy Wilson and includes Councilmembers Felicia Williams, and Tyron Hampton, also questioned the outreach to members of the local business community.Members of that community on Tuesday told Pasadena Now they opposed any changes to the city’s parking structure and questioned the timing of the proposals.“This is a terrible time to raise costs for anything,” said Pasadena Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Paul Little. “I certainly hope there are considerations given to not raising meter or parking garage costs until the emergency orders are lifted and there is some sense of the retail and restaurant landscape that remains.”Merchants worried that increases in parking costs could push customers from Pasadena to nearby destination centers like the Westfield Mall in Arcadia, which offers free parking, and the Americana on Brand in Glendale.“I think it couldn’t come at the worst time,” said Blair Salisbury, who owns El Cholo Restaurant. “From what I read yesterday on some of the Facebook pages, other surrounding cities still get free parking. I think someone’s going to say, ‘Well, I can go to the Americana and get free parking.’”The Transportation Department started working with consultant Dixon Resources Unlimited in March. To review the city’s parking program, Dixon started holding stakeholder meetings, coupled with an online survey, to obtain information to better understand Pasadena’s parking needs and concerns. Dixon also reviewed the city’s parking ordinances and policies and evaluated the city’s off-street and on-street parking fee structures.In a draft submitted to the Transportation Department, Dixon’s most significant recommendations include modernizing both the city’s on-street parking technology and its parking rate model. Upgrading on-street meter technology should be coupled with utilizing parking payment data as one way to determine on-street parking occupancy, which would then help to determine parking rates.The demand-based parking rate recommendation is intended to keep an 85-percent occupancy level on the street while providing drivers with different pricing options for their parking sessions. According to the draft plan, this, in turn, should increase vehicle turnover and maximize the volume of drivers that can visit a metered area. A flexible base rate is also proposed to be updated periodically based on historic parking occupancy figures, along with an escalating rate model that encourages parking turnover but allows customers to pay premium rates if they choose to stay for longer periods in a metered space.“The city has put out a lot of money,” said Gail Kohl, who owns Gale’s Restaurant. “They have less revenue because of what’s been going on. Someone’s going to have to pay. We’re going to have to do something about the parking. There’s no doubt about that, but if they could just hold off for a few more months, I think that would make all the difference in the world.”The item will move forward for community outreach, according to Williams.“I expressed a desire to put this study on hold to allow our businesses to recover and preserve taxpayer dollars,” Williams said. “Don’t tickle the pilot while he’s trying to land the plane. Let our businesses recover, people go back to work, and the community heal before taking such drastic steps. We can also see what the post-COVID data is and incorporate that into the analysis.”Because the parking plan was an informational item, no vote was taken.“It’s certainly not going to help business in the short term,” said restaurant owner Gregg Smith.
