Hotshots: Gloucester back-row Ross Moriarty

first_imgWhich coaches have helped you the most?Peter Walton, from England U18, found me playing for Gloucester U19 and has been my mentor ever since.Were you tempted to play for Wales not England?No, because I was at an English club and England approached me first.What are your aims now?To do ourselves proud at the World Championship, then to play as much as I can for Gloucester. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS On the charge: Moriarty on his way to Junior World Cup victory What was it like to win the Junior World Cup last year?It was quite surreal. We had a really good team and played really well, but this year everyone has as much chance as we did in 2013.Your dad (Paul) and uncle (Richard) both played for Wales, so was rugby always in your life? Since I could walk and talk I had a rugby ball. I used to go to training and games with my dad.Did you like other sports?I played in goal with Swansea City until I was about 11, then I played Swansea Schools rugby and that was all I wanted to do.When did you move to the back row?Not until I was 17. I went to Hartpury College as a full-back and I was playing second- and third-team rugby so I decided to try the back row. My dad said it would be difficult. RW verdict: A star for the England age groups, Moriarty will soon be making headlines for Gloucester.This hotshot was first published in the July 2014 edition of Rugby World.

Justin Welby calls for greater Anglican Communion say in selection…

first_img Posted Feb 8, 2018 Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ [Anglican Communion News Service] The primates of the Anglican Communion should have a greater say in the appointments of future archbishops of Canterbury, the current archbishop, Justin Welby, said Feb. 8. Welby made his comments during a debate at the Church of England’s General Synod on the working of the Crown Nominations Commission (CNC) – the body that recommends appointments to diocesan bishoprics. Appointments of bishops in the Church of England are made by the Queen, as Supreme Governor of the Church, who acts on the advice of the CNC.Read the entire article here.

Pissed off. The Africans will want a hardcore conservative, the Americans will want a Unitarian Buddhist. The British won’t care because they’ve replaced God with crisps. Let the Queen have something. Frankly, what if the Queen chose ALL of the primates. That’d be a great way to ensure some sort of continuity among the communion. As a parishioner of TEC, I feel I’d have an equal amount of representation and consultation in that choice (ie none), which probably for the best. It would give some sort of linear structure to the communion instead of it being just a rotting mass that excises and wars against itself.Just an idea.

That said, I both agree with Andrew Poland and would suggest that, were the ABC to be chosen with the input of the primates, it would fundamentally change the nature of that office. It’s hard enough to keep it clear among Anglicans that the ABC is not our equivalent of a pope and has no power outside of the C of E other than one of moral persuasion. Making the see of Canterbury subject to some sort of approval or election from outside of England will, no doubt, further move us toward a centralization of power and authority that is antithetical to our historical polity. Leave it to the Queen. One of the things that some of us like about the way the C of E is organized is that the head of the church is a lay person.

Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Twitter World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution printDirector Damien Chazelle returns to the big screen with his new film “First Man,” chronicling Neil Armstrong’s process of becoming the first astronaut to lead a successful mission to the moon.While a typical blockbuster movie about space could include large-scale special effects or an overwhelming soundtrack, Chazelle took a completely different approach, relying much more on an internal perspective rather than aggrandizing Armstrong and his feat.(Trailer courtesy of IMDb.)Whenever Armstrong (Ryan Gosling) finds himself test-piloting planes, landing lunar modules, or inside a space capsule, the action is shown entirely from his point of view. The audience is given a front-row seat to feel what he’s going through: the sounds of each machine, the claustrophobia inside the shuttle, breathing inside his helmet; rarely do we see what it looks like outside the astronaut’s line of sight.By doing this, Chazelle achieves a much more sensory film than one might imagine, where the visuals aren’t as important as is going through this process directly with Armstrong. What happens outside the shuttle is nothing compared to the job that must be done inside, and that becomes a theme throughout the film: we get to feel how Armstrong devotes his life to his work without paying much attention to what’s outside because it’s simply not important.A major stand out is the film’s sound mixing. Sound and silence are intertwined to create a unique experience, with Justin Hurwitz’s original score being mixed in with sounds of nature near Armstrong’s home, the rattling and clanking of the space capsule and the absolute silence of space.Not only are the technical aspects of the film stunning, the screenplay, written by Josh Singer, who wrote the Oscar-nominated “The Post” and best picture winner “Spotlight,” works in perfect harmony with the overall tone of the film. Everything is precise, albeit a little weak.With such introspective and contemplative characters, sometimes it felt like some dialogue was missing. Here is where sound effects and ambient sound is a big part of the magic of this film, and this combination creates a powerful viewing experience.Gosling’s performance as Armstrong is impressive, totally different from his usual charming characters. He does an exceptional job at portraying Armstrong as someone incredibly humble and stoic throughout his life, never wanting to dwell on certain feelings for too long and never really connecting with his family emotionally, especially with his young sons.Claire Foy as Neil’s wife Janet is a scene stealer. Janet is everything Neil is not: communicative, playful and warm, and that opposition plays well into their family dynamic. Janet is a strong woman with bold opinions but is also sensitive enough to pick up on the nuances of Neil’s character, leaving her in charge, more than her husband, of sustaining the family.Verdict“First Man” is probably one of the best films I’ve seen this year. When Oscar nominations roll around, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it receive sweeping nominations for best actor and supporting actress, cinematography, sound editing and mixing, best film and possibly for best adapted screenplay. Make sure to watch this movie while it’s still in theaters as it adds so much to the viewing experience.9/10 ReddItlast_img read more

‘Miracle’ boy who was trapped in sewer pipe thanks ‘God for giving me another chance to live’

first_imgLos Angeles Fire Department (LAFD)(LOS ANGELES) — A 13-year-old boy who was rescued after spending 13 hours trapped in a network of sewage pipes said Tuesday he thanks God “for giving me another chance to live.”Jesse Hernandez was picnicking with his family in Los Angeles as part of an annual Easter tradition on Sunday when he went to play at an abandoned building.After he stepped on a piece of wood that gave way, Jesse fell about 25 feet into the sewer pipe, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.The pipes, which run parallel the Los Angeles River and cross under freeways, are 4 feet in diameter. They are filled with 2 feet or more of sewage that moves at 15 mph, officials said.“Everything just happened fast and I fell,” and landed in water, Jesse told ABC News Tuesday. “I thought I was gonna die but I didn’t cause I got to stand up. … It felt like a dream.”He said his phone fell out of his pocket while he was trying to use it for light in the dark tunnel.Jesse stayed in one spot for 13 hours, keeping himself awake in the cold, wet, foul-smelling darkness.Bali Construction As he waited for help, Jesse said he had both positive and negative thoughts. At some points “I thought it was gonna be OK,” he told ABC News, while at other moments he was worried, “I was gonna die right here.”During the long and lonely wait, Jesse said he thought about his family.“I didn’t want to lose them,” he said. “I was pretty scared.”The fire department, working with the Bureau of Sanitation, frantically worked through the night and pinpointed the search area to a one-mile radius. Intelligence then narrowed the search down to a specific section of pipe, LAFD Capt. Erik Scott told ABC News.Cameras used to inspect pipes for repair were employed as part of the rescue effort, the fire department said.Early Monday morning one of the cameras saw handprints inside the pipe. Rescuers opened a maintenance hatch and spotted Jesse, said Adel Hagekhalil of the Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation.The teen said he screamed “help” and rescuers quickly lowered a rope to him.Jesse said he first asked for a phone to call his mother and told her, “Mom, I’m OK. Where you at? Come pick me up!”Jesse’s stepfather, Arturo Ramirez, added that Jesse told his mother, “Mom, don’t get mad I lost my phone!”Ramirez told ABC News he never gave up hope as he prayed through that long night.A day after the rescue, Jesse said he thanks “God for giving me another chance to live.”He’s also grateful to the crews who worked through the night, saying, “Thank you for working hard and finding me.”Scott said it appears Jesse traveled about three-quarters of a mile. He was found near the intersection of the 134 Freeway and the 5 Freeway.Jesse was taken to a local hospital and later released.Scott called it a “miracle” that the 13-year-old survived.“We maintained hope, we maintained intensity and we did not give up,” Scott said. “But I’ll be honest, we did not think we would find a viable patient.”After word spread that Jesse had been found, Scott said he has never seen so many men hold back their tears and embrace each other.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Frank Cable Supply Department turns stress to success

first_img For the Sailors assigned to the Supply Department on board the submarine tender USS Frank Cable (AS 40), the months that led up to March 22 included many hours of file maintenance, organizing, double-checking and mental preparation. Every Supply Department Sailor from the supply officer to the most junior seaman were focused and ready for the most comprehensive inspection many of them have ever faced.On March 22-29, inspectors from Commander, Submarine Force – Pacific Fleet came aboard the Frank Cable to conduct the Supply Management Inspection on the Supply Department. During the SMI, a group of inspectors verified the processes and procedures of the Supply Department. The main inspection took place during the first three days, while the remaining days were used primarily for the inspectors to provide training and mentorship to the various divisions.“The Supply Management Inspection comes around every 18 months,” said Logistics Specialist 2nd Class Jamey Smith, leading petty officer of Submarine Supply Assistance Team division. “It is the most critical inspection any supply department on any platform goes through to showcase its supply readiness capabilities.”In October 2016, the Frank Cable Supply Department underwent a Supply Management Assessment. Although the results of that assessment were less than favorable, it helped to prepare the department for what they can expect to encounter during the SMI.“The inspection in October was invaluable to the department,” said Lt. Tucker Livingston, customer service officer. “The SUBPAC inspectors are extremely knowledgeable and were able to analyze every aspect of our operation. It was a fantastic training opportunity for everyone from our most junior to senior personnel, especially for Sailors that have not been through such a rigorous inspection.”The inspectors inspected six divisions of the Frank Cable Supply department including Administration/ Training, Stock Control, Ship Store, Customer Service, Material Division and Quality Assurance. Logistics Specialist 3rd Class Joanna Paras said, the inspection made her nervous but she was confident in her division’s ability to pass.“At some point I didn’t know what they were asking for but my chain of command had my back and helped me throughout the process,” said Paras.Logistics Specialist 1st Class Patrice Rice, supply department leading petty officer, said the process was as much a learning experience as it was an inspection.“This is my first SMI and I think it went really well,” said Rice. “We have a motivated team that spent a lot of long hours making sure everything was ready for the big day and now it’s finally paying off.”The valiant effort of each division resulted in an overall “Excellent” evaluation for the 2017 SMI. Cmdr. Robert Corley, Frank Cable’s supply officer, said this result is a testament to the hours of training, teamwork, coordination, persistence and supervisory oversight by each and every Supply team member.“Supply performance has improved significantly since last October, and the results of this SMI provide an indicator that my team’s contributions are vital to the overall success of Supply,” said Corley. “But, we need to continue the momentum and close the gap on perfection. We have some work ahead of us, and I know my team will continue to manage improvements across the range of supply operations on Frank Cable.”Frank Cable, en route to Portland, Ore. for her dry-dock phase maintenance availability, conducts maintenance and supports submarines and surface vessels deployed to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

IS IT TRUE MARCH 27, 2019

first_imgWe hope that today’s “READERS FORUM” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way?IS IT TRUE that the secrets about the appraisals surrounding the former CVS on North Main that was leased by DaVita to become a dialysis center for $1,600 per month is maddening?…by connecting the statements of DMD Director Kelley Coures, it can be surmised that the City of Evansville and DaVita Dialyisis have spent over $2 Million to purchase and refurbish this building?…it is now on sale and bids are being solicited based on the value of the building based on the cash income method?…income real estate is often valued based on the CAP rate which in Evansville is between 8 and 12 times the annual gross revenue potential?…the lease rate of $1.600 per month at a CAP rate of 10 would yield a value of only $192,000 for this building that supposedly has over $2 million in it?…there is actually a bidder that has offered $178,000 which is on the low end of the CAP rate expectation so this offer needs to be taken seriously?…the fact that the City of Evansville paid over $500,000 for the building and DaVita Dialysis reportedly added another $1.5 million is irrelevant?…it sounds like the viability of income property in Jimtown has not changed much in 50 years since the manufacturing base left town?…investing in Evansville as if it was a high-cost coastal enclave has and will always lead to losses and this time the taxpayers of Evansville were fleeced again by their own government?…as much as altering the rules to keep the Rathbone viable was the right thing to do, the actions and investments of the City of Evansville in the Jimtown CVS is just plain old dumb?IS IT TRUE  last week that the President of the National Gridiron League went to Roanoke, Va to reassure city leaders that the league is still on track to bring Arena Football to that area?  …. we are told even after his presentation to city officials, there are still many questions to be answered?  …we urge you and members of the local mainstream media to pull up the story March 22, 2019, written by Shayne Dwyer – reporter for Channel 10 TV News to view his extremely interesting story concerning Arena Football in the Roanoke area?IS IT TRUE the Vanderburgh County Commissioners have formed a “County Health Insurance Advisory Committee” to study the county health insurance plan?  …this Committee is chaired by President of the County Commission Ben Shoulders? …this committee is comprised of many different county employees from each department?   …this committee met for the first time last week and a great deal of progress was made?  …that the committee will meet a few more times and will then decide on a recommendation to the Commissioners on what health insurance plan they want?….we give kudos to the County Commissioners for thinking outside the box?IS IT TRUE we would like to congratulate the Evansville Sports Corporation for doing a superb job in coordinating the “Elite Eight” Divison ll basketball tournament?  …we expect that the Evansville Sports Corporation would also do an outstanding job if they were allowed to coordinate the marketing efforts of the Evansville Thunderbolts hockey team?IS IT TRUE we noticed that several City Council candidates already have their po0litical signs displayed in people yards?  …this is a good sign that we are going to have a spirited City Council election?IS IT TRUE we are told by reliable sources that the renovations of the Westside Water and Treatment could use a little extra project management oversite help? …our sources tell us that they expect this project will go over budget and may not be finished in the time frame projected?IS IT TRUE during the last several years K.
