first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Ford focus: 20-year-old George Ford has replaced Toby Flood in the only change to England’s EPSBy Bea Asprey THE GUARD has changed within the England EPS squad. As Toby Flood announced his departure to France in January, 20-year-old George Ford was called up to replace him in the Six Nations squad to comply with the RFU’s policy not to pick players who play their club rugby overseas. Ford has been on head coach Stuart Lancaster’s radar for a number of years, and his form for Bath this season has caught the eye, yet losing a player with 60 caps to his name will have an impact on the squad. We assess England’s fly-halves below.The Exile Having started his career as Jonny Wilkinson’s apprentice at Newcastle, Toby Flood finally emerged from the legend’s shadow when he joined Leicester in 2008. The playmaker started to make his mark for England in that season under Martin Johnson, and travelled to New Zealand for the 2011 World Cup as England’s first choice 10.  Lancaster himself tried to persuade Flood to stay at Leicester, and the coach says: “He has made a lifestyle choice and we respect that but given the RFU’s policy of not selecting players based overseas save for exceptional circumstances it was important that we allow others such as George Ford to progress.”The Incumbent The current holder of England’s No 10 jersey, Owen Farrell made his debut for Saracens aged just 17, making him the youngest player to ever play professional rugby. When he made his England debut at Murrayfield four years later, the rugby world waited for his nerves to crack, and yet with a current kicking success rate of 82% it’s clear that they’ve remained as steely as ever. The 22-year-old Lion has been criticised for his lack of creativity, however, and also displayed a hot head when taking a swing at his Saracens team-mate Schalk Brits when the Lions took on the Barbarians in Hong Kong. But Lancaster’s loyal nature means Farrell is embedded for now, and is looking like he’ll be England’s first choice in 2015.The Old Head A former rugby league player, Stephen Myler has gradually worked his way up the ranks with club and country, having cemented his starting place at Northampton, and featured for England Saxons on eight occasions. His goal kicking tops Farrell’s with an 84% success rate, the highest in the Premiership, and he was given his first and only senior England cap to date in Argentina last summer. At the age of 29, he’s not a long-term option for Lancaster, yet his experience, form and consistency warrant his inclusion in this year’s Six Nations squad, and with Flood vacating the bench spot the Saint has everything to fight for.The Youngster  Farrell’s former-England U20s team-mate, George Ford is used to fighting for the 10 shirt. The son of former England coach Mike Ford, Ford junior made the switch from Leicester to Bath this season to get more game time, a decision that’s seen him catapulted into the EPS. Having steered the U20s to a Six Nations Grand Slam and Junior World Cup final in 2011, he was the first Englishman to be named IRB World Junior Player of the Year. He’s been tipped as the next Wilkinson since his U18 days, but it’s only this season that he’s had enough game time to be able to string a number of good performances together. With a 68% kicking success rate and having beaten 15 defenders this season so far, Ford will be quietly determined to take his place on England’s bench. Lancaster says: “His tactical game is excellent, as is his kicking game, he’s a good goal kicker, and the club and I have been impressed with his maturity.”The Maverick His name transcends sport, but Danny Cipriani has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons since he led England to victory over Ireland in 2008, and he hasn’t played for his country since. Undeniably talented, with pace and a nous for running a game, it’s unfortunate that celebrity girlfriends and wayward buses have taken priority over his on-field performances in years gone by, but his form and consistency at Sale seem to be picking up once more. Lancaster says: “I’ve watched all Danny’s games, looking for the same thing I look for in all fly-halves: defence, game management, attack and kicking game. He’s been a lot more consistent this season, but he’s still not overtaken Ford in my opinion. I’ve no issue with him as a person, but he needs to strive to be in our squad.”The Saxon 23-year-old Freddie Burns has admitted that speculation over his future is affecting his performances on the pitch, and his kicking success rate has dropped to 57% of late. He’s beaten 16 defenders, though, and is an exciting fly-half to watch when on form, and Lancaster is hoping he’ll lay down a marker playing for England Saxons this month. Lancaster says of the Gloucester 10: “We can all see Freddie’s talent, and most players dip in form at some stage of their career. He’s not played for a few weeks, which is why he’s in the Saxons, though there’s no technical issue with his game.” It’s rumoured that Burns, who’s younger brother Billy also plays at Gloucester, will be called in by Leicester as Flood’s replacement.The Hotshot  EXETER, ENGLAND – DECEMBER 07: Henry Slade of Exeter Chiefs in action during the Heineken Cup Pool Two match between Exeter Chiefs and Toulon at Sandy Park on December 7, 2013 in Exeter, England. (Photo by Michael Steele/Getty Images) He’s still in the England U20s squad, but Exeter Chief Henry Slade is already on Lancaster’s radar. He was key member of the U20s side that won the Six Nations and Junior World Cup last season, and has become a popular Premiership fixture at Sandy Park this year. The 20-year-old, who came through Exeter’s academy, loves to play an expansive game in true Chiefs style, and has earned his first call up to the England Saxons squad, announced this week.last_img read more

Nuestro tiempo juntos durante los últimos trece días ha demostrado de forma visible, una vez más, nuestra unidad en la diversidad como provincias de la Comunión Anglicana. Al conocer a otros anglicanos de todo el mundo en los debates, en torno al altar, en los descansos, y en las comidas, hemos aprendido unos de otros lo que significa el discipulado intencional a través de nuestras diferencias como Cuerpo de Cristo en el mundo de hoy. Estamos agradecidos a Dios y a la Iglesia Episcopal por este privilegio de representar a nuestra iglesia en el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano.Debido a que esta reunión del CCA se llevó a cabo a la sombra de la Asamblea de los Primados y Reunión en enero que buscó el restringir nuestra participación como miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal, queremos asegurarles que participamos plenamente en esta reunión y que se nos dio una calurosa bienvenida e inclusión por otros miembros del CCA. El Arzobispo de Canterbury Justin Welby informó al CCA sobre la Asamblea de Primados y Reunión [ver aquí] en el primer día de la reunión. Más allá de ese informe, los miembros del CCA parecían tener poca energía para responder a la petición de los primados sobre consecuencias, sobre el discutir los desacuerdos sobre la sexualidad humana, o sobre emprender la petición del Secretario General Josías Idowy-Fearsib de la Comunión Anglicana de seguir el Pacto Anglicano. De hecho, ayer, esa resolución que trataba de buscar más consecuencias en contra de la Iglesia Episcopal se retiró justo antes de que estuviera programada para el debate.Por el contario, nuestros compañeros miembros del CCA y nosotros fuimos animados por nuestras preocupaciones compartidas sobre el discipulado intencional, la violencia de género, el cambio climático, la violencia por motivos religiosos, la seguridad alimentaria y otros temas que nos afectan a todos a través de la Comunión Anglicana. La oración de la mañana, el estudio bíblico sobre el libro de Rut, y la Eucaristía diaria dio forma a nuestros días, y nuestra Eucaristía de apertura el 10 de abril con 5000 anglicanos de toda la Provincia de África Central sirvió como un recordatorio alegre de que nuestra identidad como anglicanos no se encuentra principalmente en las estructuras o en los documentos de gobierno sino en nuestra unidad como cuerpo de Cristo reunido en torno a una mesa. Nuestros anfitriones en la Provincia de África Central habían estado planeando este encuentro durante dos años y nos ofrecieron a nosotros y a todos los miembros del CCA y huéspedes una hospitalidad extraordinaria, incluyendo la organización de visitas a las congregaciones locales el 17 de abril, donde cantamos, bailamos y oramos durante horas y fuimos tratados como invitados de honor.El 15 de abril, nosotros tres tuvimos la oportunidad de conocer de manera informal al Arzobispo Justin, a Caroline su esposa y a miembros de su personal en el palacio de Lambeth. Nuestra conversación fue fácil, abierta y honesta, y nos fuimos de la conversación con la convicción de que aunque el arzobispo no está de acuerdo con las acciones de nuestra Convención General relacionadas con la igualdad en el matrimonio, está firmemente comprometido con nuestra unidad como Comunión Anglicana y con la autonomía de las provincias anglicanas. Expresó un profundo deseo de que la Iglesia Episcopal siga comprometida e implicada en la vida de la Comunión Anglicana. Estamos muy agradecidos al arzobispo Justin por tomarse el tiempo de reunirse con nosotros, por su franqueza, y por asegurarnos de su respeto hacia nosotros y hacia la Iglesia Episcopal.Esta fue la primera reunión del CCA al que tanto Arzobispo Justin como el Secretario General de la Comunión Anglicana Josías Idowu-Fearon asistieron, ya que ambos son relativamente nuevos en sus puestos. Encontramos el proceso y el programa de la reunión, especialmente los días de apertura, estar compuestos principalmente de informes preparados por el personal de la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana. Hubiéramos preferido más tiempo interactivo con nuestros compañeros miembros del CCA como experimentamos en reuniones anteriores del CCA.La labor del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano y de la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana es supervisada por un Comité permanente, con un Presidente y Vice-Presidente, elegidos por los miembros del CCA en cada reunión. El CCA16 eligió una lista de dos laicos, un sacerdote, y dos obispos para la Comisión Permanente que son ampliamente inclusivos en género, edad y geografía. La canóniga Margaret Swinson, una laica de la Iglesia de Inglaterra, fue elegida nuestra Vicepresidente y el Arzobispo Paul Kwong de Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui, Presidente. Observamos que la elección de un arzobispo como presidente de la ACC significa que los cuatro Instrumentos de Comunión ahora están a cargo de un primado, tal vez ilustrando una tendencia hacia el aumento de la autoridad primacial en la Comunión Anglicana. Además, a pesar de las resoluciones anteriores del CCA respaldando la paridad de género en los órganos de dirección anglicanos, esta reunión incluyó a 50 hombres y solo a 20 mujeres entre sus miembros. Sin embargo, el CCA en su conjunto, mantiene su compromiso con la plena participación de todo el pueblo de Dios, especialmente las mujeres, los jóvenes y laicos en la vida y obra de la Comunión Anglicana. Por lo tanto, nos alienta el apoyo abrumador del CCA para explorar la posibilidad de un Congreso Anglicano en el 2025 (Resolución D9) y para la ampliación de la representación juvenil en el ACC (Resolución D4).Dejamos Lusaka con un enorme agradecimiento hacia el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, hacia nuestros compañeros miembros del CCA de todo el mundo, y a la generosidad de nuestros anfitriones aquí en Zambia. En nuestro tiempo juntos como hermanas y hermanos en Cristo hemos sido testigos una vez más de la amplitud y diversidad de nuestra familia mundial de iglesias conocidas como la Comunión Anglicana. Agradecemos a Dios por las muchas y diferentes formas en que los anglicanos de todo el mundo están participando en la misión de Dios de  la restauración y la reconciliación y de nuestra unidad como discípulos de Jesús. Como miembros del CCA estamos firmemente comprometidos a la plena participación de la Iglesia Episcopal en la Comunión Anglicana.Gracias por sus oraciones y su ayuda mientras hemos representado a la Iglesia Episcopal en el CCA16. Por favor, únase a nosotros en continua oración por todos los miembros del CCA a medida que viajan a casa para compartir nuestra unidad como anglicanos que participan en la misión de Dios.FielmenteRosalie Simmonds BallentineIan T.

Currently, California has a two-year statute of limitations, which is often too short to gather evidence to ensure victims get a fair trial.“Victims of human rights abuses deserve justice. I continue to be an advocate for these survivors because I admire their courage and willingness to step out and strive toward finding closure. I believe AB 15 gives survivors a chance to have their voice heard,” said Holden (D-Pasadena).Human trafficking – including child sex trafficking – remains a fast-growing criminal industry. California has the questionable distinction of being a top destination for human traffickers with most cases simply flying under the radar. This bill will help the victims and their families find some measure of justice.AB 15 brings California law into line with federal regulations for filing civil lawsuits based on acts of genocide, torture, war crimes and human trafficking. In California, these human rights abuses are brought as assault, battery or wrongful death claims.AB 15 is supported by organizations such as the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable, the Armenian National Committee of America, Amnesty International, California Catholic Conference, Oxfam America, as well as various women and health groups. 3 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it center_img Business News Community News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

first_imgIt wasn’t so very long ago that many employers thought being a good corporate citizen meant persuading a few middle managers to paint the local community youth centre. The employees would learn a bit, the community would be slightly better off and local customers might see the firm in a good light.Just how far UK companies have come was demonstrated by last week’s annual conference of the Institute of Directors. With its membership base of mostly small and medium businesses, the IoD is known for fighting red tape and employee-friendly regulations. The fact the institute dedicated this year’s conference to the topic of globalisation shows that the business community is finally realising that corporate social responsibility is as much about competitiveness as it is about child labour or global warming.It was a brave decision. There were protesters outside the Albert Hall as the conference began and the inclusion of former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger as a speaker attracted flack from sections of the press.However, the IoD should be applauded for giving such issues a platform. The message from IoD director general, George Cox, and outgoing IoD president Lord Young of Graffham, was at times radical.Lord Young proposed it should be a criminal offence for companies to conceal information about directors’ pay. And Cox acknowledged that market forces alone could not be the sole driver for tackling huge international problems in which multinational companies play a major role.Malcolm Brinded, planning director of Shell International, called on companies to address corporate social responsibility in a spirit of enlightened self-interest.And for anyone in HR who thinks they can leave such issues to the board, Brinded pointed out that there are dividends, as well as threats, for HR in terms of recruitment and retention, innovation and anticipating new markets. HR ignores the big issues at its peril. The big issues business cannot afford to ignoreOn 30 Apr 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

first_imgUnderstanding the accretionary stages of Rodinia evolution and the arrangement of cratons and arc terranes is dependent upon high-precision geochronology from key piercing points of Mesoproterozoic rocks. U-Pb zircon dating is presented here from the Mesoproterozoic Haag Nunataks gneiss complex of West Antarctica where the dominant granodiorite protolith was emplaced at 1238 ± 4 Ma, aplite/pegmatite sheets were intruded at 1064 ± 4 Ma and the final intrusive phase of microgranite sheets were emplaced at 1056 ± 8 Ma. A separate magmatic event at ∼1170 Ma is recorded as inherited zircons in the later stage intrusions. Based on field relationships, the main phase of deformation at Haag Nunataks is thought to have developed prior to the emplacement of the microgranite sheet at ∼1056 Ma but after the ∼1064 Ma aplite/pegmatite intrusive phase. Potentially correlative units from the Shackleton Range and Coats Land of East Antarctica are also dated to test supposed correlations with arc terranes and crustal blocks at the margins of Laurentia and the proto-Kalahari craton. An ice-transported granite pegmatite sample recovered from the Brunt Ice Shelf is used as a partial proxy for unexposed rocks of the ice-covered Coats Land block and has been dated at ∼1100 Ma. A diorite gneiss from the Shackleton Range was also analysed as it forms part of a magnetic domain shared with the Haag Nunataks crustal block. Core zircon ages of ∼2470 Ma were determined, and the age of migmatisation is interpreted at ∼1740 Ma and rules out any potential correlation with the Haag Nunataks gneiss complex. The magmatic precursors of the Haag Nunataks orthogneisses were emplaced in a juvenile arc setting. We argue that this arc was located in the Natal Embayment region, contiguous with the Namaqua-Natal-Maud belt of arc terranes typified by enhanced magmatism at ∼1240 Ma and ∼1170 Ma not associated with any significant deformation events. The later magmatic events at Haag Nunataks at ∼1060 Ma are more closely associated with collision of Laurentia with the proto-Kalahari craton and the associated deformation is correlated with the Ottawan phase of the Grenville orogeny.last_img read more
