first_img Canada’s banking watchdog warned yesterday that the next global financial crisis may not be far off and that now is the time for regulators to get tough on the financial industry. “I think we have seen this movie before, but the amazing thing is we continue to expect a different ending,” said Ted Price, assistant superintendent of the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI), according to the prepared text of a speech in Calgary, Alberta. The world’s banks are now entering a “dangerous” where profits are strong and they are increasingly willing to invest in risky assets for high returns, he said.

first_imgThe Benetton No 9 talks moving to Italy, mental health and memorable advice   What a try from @federugby’s top-class number 8 @JakePolledri! #ITAvENG #GuinnessSixNations— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) October 31, 2020Do you have any nicknames? At Gloucester it was Breezy. Elliott Stooke came up with it. He thought of it as I have the same initials as Chris Brown (the singer whose nickname is Breezy). Since I’ve been in Italy, it’s Cally.What’s the funniest thing you’ve heard on the pitch? Someone in a ruck calling out, “I’m so strong.” I don’t know if he was being serious but it was quite funny.What really annoys you? Having to fill the car up with petrol! I always leave it until I have just a couple of miles left.Any superstitions? I put my left sock on, then my right, then my left shoe and my right shoe. That’s all the time. I never believed in superstitions and did it out of habit, but once I didn’t do it and got a minor injury to my knee so thought, ‘Maybe it’s something I need to do.’Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with? Jürgen Klopp. I’m a Liverpool fan and I’m interested in maybe going into coaching or managing people in some capacity, and he looks like he gets the most out of people. And maybe Lee Evans for a bit of humour.What’s your guilty pleasure? Trainers. And One Direction. I love trainers. I’ve got north of 40 pairs. I don’t have all of them here but I’ve probably got 20.Best advice you’ve ever received? It’s harder at the top. When I was playing at St Mary’s in Bristol, Dave Hilton, the ex-Scotland and Bristol prop, did an awards ceremony and he was talking about how people think it’s hard to get to the top but he said, “Once you get there, it’s harder to stay at the top”.What would you like to achieve outside of rugby? I’d just like to create a happy, thriving home.  Let’s all come together and #TackleTheStigma Keep an eye out for some more videos throughout the month.As we go back into a national lockdown, it’s important to normalise the conversation around #MentalHealth as much as possible.#Movember— LooseHeadz (@LooseHeadz) November 1, 2020Are you someone who is good at opening up? In the past, definitely not! But in the past two years I’ve tried to speak to people, tell them how I feel, and that’s helped massively. They don’t always have the answers but sharing helped. I’ve tried to be more honest with myself and others around me.I’ve talked about how people need to be more open… My wife and I had a few miscarriages. Speaking openly to my wife, close friends and family, saying it does hurt and is sad, helped. I’d bottled it up for some time and it affected me. That’s part of my experience. Everyone goes through different things and me sharing might help someone else.You have a son, Buddy, now. How are the family settling into life in Italy after you joined Benetton?We’re getting there! It’s a big culture change. In England, we’d worked hard to create a life we enjoyed with two dogs, a micro pig and horses. We love the outdoor life and had lots of animals around us, so that’s been a big change.It was hard enough to find a house to rent that would accept the two dogs, so the micro pig and horses are with people we know back in the UK.How are you finding the language? I did a few Italian lessons back in England, but I found I was learning more when I was in camp with Italy, so at the moment I’m trying to pick up bits and pieces as I go along.Who are the jokers in the squad? In the Benetton squad, Leo Sarto has got quite rounded humour. In the Italy squad, Jake Polledri is fairly funny. I don’t really want to say that but he is to be fair.

Jake Superior!center_img Downtime with… Italy scrum-half Callum BraleyYou’re an ambassador for mental health organisation LooseHeadz – how did that come about? It was quite mutual. One of the guys who set up LooseHeadz is friends with one of the Gloucester players and I’d seen what they’re trying to achieve. In today’s world everyone is fully aware of the discussion around mental health, so I felt if I could help spread a positive message it would be a good thing to do.How important is it that more people are talking about mental health? A lot of people talk about how you should open up more but how many people actually do? We need to encourage people to do it, reach out to people we care about who may not be 100%.It’s great that people say ‘Talk more’, ‘It’s okay to feel down’, and we need to encourage people to ask genuine questions, ‘How are you really?’. The more we encourage each other to be open and honest the better.

Photo: Jeremy BradleyThe March 5 Canoecharist began about 8:30 a.m. with the opening acclamation and reading of lessons before some 20 canoes and kayaks launched into Houston’s Buffalo Bayou.Singing as they paddled, the 20- and 30-somethings retrieved plastic bottles and bags, beer cans, and even a lawn chair from the water in what felt, to Jeremy Bradley, 29, minister for youth and young adults at Christ Church Cathedral like the classic “slowing down and reflecting” called for during Lent.The Rev. Eileen O’Brien, cathedral curate, said her preaching about the recklessness of the Prodigal Son’s behavior and the recklessness of the love of his father “was a bit tricky” while maneuvering her kayak in the middle of the bayou.“The bayou is in the middle of the city, but it doesn’t feel like it,” said O’Brien, 34.“Suddenly, you see the skyline and you’re in the shadow of the city. As we said the prayers of the people, we took the opportunity to slow down and pray for the city, for those who work in those spaces, who live under the shadow of the city, including our significant homeless population here in Houston.“It was a journey that allowed us to become aware of the word that God was speaking to us in new ways.”For Bradley, it was a time to connect with nature within the city “a chance to be aware of how the paddle goes through the water, how that pushes you forward, (and) to be aware of your surroundings,” as well as to connect on a deeper level in community.The trip began about 8:30 a.m. and concluded about 3 p.m. and an important component was the “giving back (that) is important to people of my generation,” Bradley said. “To be able to do something that’s bigger than themselves, and to give back to a community that supports them in many ways.”He added: “It’s part of why I do youth ministry now. I got plugged into the church in high school, and I’ve never looked back, because of people who invested in me and loved me and cared for me and showed me that helping out others and keeping the earth clean and trash-free are important goals.”Joining with Habitat: Instead of giving up, giving back for LentInstead of giving something up for Lent this year, Episcopalians in Louisiana andAlabama are giving back – spending Saturdays with other congregations building new homes as part of Habitat for Humanity’s faith initiative.“Lent has always been a time to focus on the meaning of death and resurrection. It is about finding ways to deepen our walk with Christ so that we become resurrected people and offer hope to the world,” according to the Ven. Lou Thibodaux, of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Birmingham.She planned to “do a lot of the sanding and finishing and putting on blue board and siding” on March 5 in a nearby town decimated by the steel mill closings. “This is a chance to revitalize the community.”Members of Christ Church in Covington, Louisiana, started construction on a Habitat for Humanity home on Ash Wednesday. Photo: Chad LockfieldSimilarly, Chad Lockfield, a member of Christ Church in Covington, Louisiana, said the construction got underway around Ash Wednesday and “these past two Saturdays we’ve been putting on HardiePlank siding.”Although Habitat is a year-round program, Cassie Brooks, vice president of development for the Habitat for Humanity Greater Birmingham in Alabama, said the Lenten build is a faith initiative that joins various churches with potential homeowners.The groups make an initial financial contribution, commit to prayer support and provide volunteer labor to build what are typically three-bedroom, two-bath homes. The average cost of new construction is $81,000 so a family’s monthly interest-free mortgage payments are about $500.A dedication service is held after completion. “It allows people to see the tangible results of their time and their money,” Brooks said.  “It revitalizes neighborhoods and creates healthy living environments.”–The Rev.

Photo: Eric Moen[Episcopal News Service] Being a “fit” Christian has taken on a whole new meaning for some congregations this Lent.At St. George’s Church in Laguna Hills, California,  “Bod4God”, and “Holy Hikes” have transformed Lent from “a sit and wait time” to a more purposeful season for parishioner Sherry Wright.Pairing the physical activity of the weight-loss programs with their spiritual components has shifted the season into “a growing time” and inspired the realization “that I want to be as healthy and best I can be, to better do God’s service,” Wright said.Hearing the week’s lessons during Holy Hikes “has taken me into a deeper place with Scripture,” she added. “I listen to it differently on Sundays now.” It has also deepened community “by being with others on a similar path.”“Episcopalians love to eat together,” agreed parishioner Jeffery Rockey. “But for so many of us, what we eat is not healthy enough and we’re not active enough and we never talk about those things in church.“We never talk about the fact that we’re not doing the best things for our bodies – and if we are created by God and for God, what are we doing to ourselves if we’re eating junk?”St. George’s adopted “Bod4God,” a program created by Steve Reynolds, a Baptist pastor who before losing 130 pounds had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.“Christians are one of the most overweight groups in the country,” said Reynolds. Since he developed Bod4God, a 12-week series of classes offering weight loss, physical, nutritional and spiritual advice, thousands have lost weight and gained a more holistic understanding of dedicating their physical selves to God.Now he is disease-free and “my goal is to make us the fittest not the fattest … using the Bible,” Reynolds told Episcopal News Service. “I think the Bible’s the greatest health book in the world” especially if participants focus on the kinds of food that Jesus ate, he said.  “I just want people to understand that God cares about our bodies, that this is part of their Christian walk, to live for him and to serve him” in healthy ways.Similarly, Anna Fitch Courie’s own experiences inspired her creation of Christ Walk as a 40-day effort, inviting congregations to better nutrition and healthy eating while regarding physical activity, community service, and meditation as journeys of faith.“I lost my hearing at 12; I was diagnosed with cancer nearly two years ago,” said Courie, 40, who works as a public health nurse in Alexandria, Virginia.“People hurt in this world. People hurt in the church and they don’t really know how to put it all together,” said Courie. “They also don’t always recognize that God wants to be all of that, not just part of that.”Cochlear implants restored her hearing and the experience taught her to “trust in Christ. It’s important to understand a lot of things illness and disease cannot take from you. You don’t have to be defined by disease and illness, and by what you can and cannot do,” said Courie, who is leading an upcoming May 6-8 Christ Walk retreat at Shrine Mont, The Cathedral Shrine of the Transfiguration in the Diocese of Virginia.The daughter of an Episcopal priest, Courie said being a “fit Christian” means having a holistic approach to mental, physical and spiritual life, and “the perception of living every part of your day with Christ foremost in your mind, with decisions we make about our bodies, with our families, with our jobs, that it’s a way of life.”Like Bod4God, congregations are encouraged to create teams, meet weekly for nutritional and health advice, and to set goals for regular exercise. For example, they can opt to take “The Exodus Challenge” and walk 375 miles, or the approximate distance the Israelites traveled to the Promised Land, at 9.4 miles a day or 18,750 steps a day.Christ Walk: “Grace not guilt” in VirginiaThe Rev. Glenda Hollingshead, pastor of Colonial Heights Presbyterian Church near Richmond, Virginia, said Christ Walk’s flexibility inspired her to create her own routes.“I thought, wouldn’t it be fun to go from Jesus’ birthplace in Bethlehem to Egypt, where he was taken into exile, to Nazareth where he grew up, to Galilee, where most of his ministry occurred, to Jerusalem, where he died?So, “I got on Google and I figure it’s a distance of about 1,032 miles.”But it was so popular that “a week and a half into it we’d already met our goal,” Hollingshead said. “We’ve more than doubled it now. Oh me of little faith, I should probably have set a goal of 10,000 miles.”Participants, like Betty and Bob Lawrence, say they translate their weekly exercises and each 15 minutes spent doing community service, into a one-mile credit.“We volunteer for Meals on Wheels, and tutor in a reading program at a local elementary school,” said Betty Lawrence, 79, “and we’re still going strong.”The weekly team meetings have made it a different Lent thus far for her “because of the sharing element and the sense of community. I like the idea that health isn’t just the absence of illness, that it’s an overall being, like body and soul.”Weekly, participants report their miles earned; Hollingshead tallies totals. The program is “grace-filled and not guilt-filled” and “no one is excluded,” she said. “We have several people on walkers, or who are somehow limited in mobility, who participate.”Weekly meeting topics – including everything from individual goals, successes and challenges to “FitBits gone wrong” – inspired Hollingshead to launch a holistic sermon series about the physical and spiritual life.“I have never preached a sermon about health and spirituality, and I never heard one before,” she said.The series concludes on Palm Sunday and “on Easter we’re having French toast and all kinds of goodies, because it’s a celebration. But, we’re also talking about how, unfortunately in our American culture, we’re eating that stuff every day and that’s what’s causing so many of us so many problems,” she said.“Eating so many rich foods … in biblical times they didn’t eat that. The prodigal son comes home and they kill the fatted calf and it’s a celebration. But, hey, we’re eating the fatted calf here every day.”In Houston: Canoes and community service Lent Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Collierville, TN Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Lent, no more a time of ‘sit and wait’ Congregations link physical activities, spiritual disciplines Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Submit an Event Listing Rector Knoxville, TN Tags Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Washington, DC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Smithfield, NC Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Associate Rector Columbus, GA Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Albany, NY center_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Curate Diocese of Nebraska Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

The central form comprises a solid helical balustrade that ‘hangs’ down the middle of the void with the stair wrapping around it. The elegant lacquered balustrade is capped with a continuous moulded handrail, hand carved from oak to match the fluid underside that follows the curves of the staircase.Save this picture!© Matt ClaytonIt was made in Fowler & Co’s workshop and then assembled on site, with the handrail made from pieces of laminated wood pressed into a curved mould. The underside is clad with timber with each piece acting like a propeller blade, twisting in two directions. The result is a sinuous shape that is given continuity by the use of treated hand carved oak for both the underside and the ribbon-like handrail.Project gallerySee allShow lessLAVA Reveals Lush Alternate Scheme for Malaysian Forest CityUnbuilt ProjectOchoco Air Hangar / TVA ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Quantity Surveyor: 2016 Houses Vital Building Services Year:  CopyAbout this officeRobert Hirschfield ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionLondonEnglandUnited KingdomPublished on January 27, 2017Cite: “Open House / Robert Hirschfield Architects” 27 Jan 2017.

first_img SHARE Cover Crops Can Improve Soil Health, Water Quality and Yields, Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleFarm Donates $5 Million to Purdue Animal Science Gary Truitt SHARE Facebook Twitter Farmers who add cover crops to their fields not only can help improve Ohio’s water quality, they can also cut input costs and improve their soil’s health. Growers who plant cover crops – including oilseed radish, cereal rye, Austrian winter pea and crimson clover – can also expect to reduce soil erosion and cut down on nutrient losses, according to Jim Hoorman, a soil expert with Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.Hoorman, an Ohio State University Extension educator and an assistant professor studying cover crops and water quality issues, will offer a workshop for both growers who want get started planting cover crops and those who want to expand their knowledge of the benefits of cover crops. OSU Extension is the outreach arm of the college. Hoorman will hold the workshop, “Using Cover Crops to Improve Soil Health,” at several sites, beginning with Ottawa on Jan. 7, 2015.The workshop discussion will also focus on how the use of cover crops can have a positive impact on improving the state’s watersheds, he said.Experts say phosphorus runoff from farmland is a cause of the harmful algal blooms plaguing Lake Erie and other lakes. In August, toxins from a bloom in western Lake Erie led to a two-day drinking water ban in Toledo.“The use of cover crops and ECO farming (ecological farming) is growing in popularity among farmers because of its success in improving soil structure, decreasing soil and nutrient losses, and eventually leading to higher yields,” Hoorman said. “ECO farming includes using long-term, no-till, continuous living cover and other best management practices as an economically viable, ecologically sound and environmentally sustainable growing practice.”Ecological concepts help to make farming more efficient, he said. “Farmers wanting to keep nutrients out of surface water, including Lake Erie, Grand Lake St. Marys and Buckeye Lake, will find that cover crops is one way to do that,” Hoorman said. “Their use can counter extreme weather events and store soil moisture while improving water quality.”The workshop will offer growers an advanced, marathon session on cover crops with the opportunity to work hands-on with soils and seeds and learn about specific cover crops, such as the fact that legume cover crops protect the soil from erosion but also produce nitrogen for crop production, he said.“Cover crops and no-till worked together in a crop rotation to feed the soil microbes, which more efficiently utilize and retain soil nutrients,” Hoorman said. “Soil microbes are like soluble bags of fertilizer, so keeping the soil microbes healthy improves plant production.”Topics for the daylong workshop include:* ECO farming: Ecological farming practices* Soil ecology and nutrient recycling* Using cover crops to adapt to extreme weather* Biology of soil compaction* Soil demonstrations* Economics of cover crops* Using the cover crop selector tool* Raising homegrown nitrogen* Using grasses and brassica in your crop rotation* Open discussion: Using cover crops in a crop rotation* Keeping phosphorus in the soil profile using ECO farmingThe registration cost for each workshop is $25 and includes lunch, handouts, fact sheets and a new Midwest Cover Crop Field Guide.

To ensure he could not be bailed, they put him on a murder charge.Reporters Without Borders said it was dismayed that yet again police had arrested a Bangladeshi journalist on a false accusation. It urged Law, Justice and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Moudud Ahmed to intervene with the relevant authorities to obtain the journalist’s release and the lifting of trumped-up charges against him.The international press freedom organisation also called in its letter to the minister for the punishment of police officer Khohinoor Miah implicated in the arrest and other human rights violations, including the torture of the journalist Saleem Samad in 2002.A riot broke out against security forces at a polling station in the town of Nandail on 9 May 2004, where local elections were being held. Police, on the order of Khohinoor Miah, fired into the crowd, killing two demonstrators and injuring at least 17 others. Pal took pictures of the police action.Police turned up at his home that night to seize the negatives. Despite threats of reprisals, Pal refused. Police searched his home and one officer said he had been ordered to arrest him if he failed to comply.Pal, who is deputy chairman of the town press club, is to appear before the Nandail court on 12 May. He cannot be released on bail because he is accused of murder under Article 302 of the criminal code. District administrator for Mymensingh district said that the chief of police had acted against his advice.On the day of Pal’s arrest, the minister, Moudud Ahmed, told a meeting of donor countries that there was complete press freedom in Bangladesh and that journalists had been killed or attacked for reasons that had nothing to do with their work.Representatives of the donor countries had asked the Dhaka government to act to improve the situation, pointing out that there could be no press freedom as long as journalists worked under threat.

first_imgWABC-TV(JERSEY CITY, N.J.) —  A man was arrested early Sunday and charged with murder in the strangulation killing of a 45-year-old nanny, whose body was discovered a week ago floating in the lake of a New Jersey park where she went jogging, authorities said.Jorge Rios, 33, of Jersey City, was taken into custody by members of the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office Homicide Task Force as a suspect in the killing of Carolina Cano, who was found dead in Lincoln Park in Jersey City, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez announced on Twitter.No further information was released on what led investigators to arrest Rios, who was being held at the Hudson County Correctional Facility in Kearny.Rios was charged with murder, kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault, Suarez said in a statement following the arrest.The body of Cano, a native of Peru who was living in Jersey City, was found about 7:30 a.m. on March 24 after she had gone out on her daily morning jog before church, police said.Police suspect that during her run in Lincoln Park, she was attacked, killed and her body was disposed of in the lake.Four days after Cano’s body was recovered, the Regional Medical Examiner’s Office in Hudson County ruled her death a homicide, prosecutors said, though they initially declined to release more information on the manner of death.On Sunday, Suarez said the medical examiner’s officer “determined the cause of death to be homicidal violence, including strangulation and water submersion, and the manner of death to be homicide.”A law enforcement source told the Jersey Journal newspaper that the medical examiner found signs of strangulation on the victim’s neck.Cano, who lived a few blocks from Lincoln Park, went for a jog every morning before going to her job as a nanny or to church, her roommate told ABC New York station WABC-TV.One of Cano’s neighbor, Frankie Ramos, said members of the woman’s church congregation became worried about her when she didn’t show up at Sunday services, and started searching for her.“They realize something was wrong when she didn’t show up to the church,” Ramos told WABC-TV. “She never missed a day. Everybody was looking for her, you know. Desperately.”Ramos said his wife was calling hospitals in the area when word came that a body was found in Lincoln Park.Authorities say surveillance camera footage recovered by investigators showed Cano entering the park alone between 5:45 a.m. and 5:50 a.m. The video shows her jogging in the park and walking into a dark area of an open field. She disappears from view into the shadows and never re-emerges on any surveillance cameras.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
