LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Tins has been a huge part of what we’ve achieved to date and will be a big part of what’s to come.”“He’s an influential figure on and off the pitch and having him on board is a big bonus for us.” Gloucester Rugby have been given a boost ahead of this weekend’s LV= Cup fixture at home to the Newport Gwent Dragons with the news that club captain Mike Tindall has signed a new contract with the club.The Otley born centre will now extend his Gloucester Rugby career into a seventh season during which time he has made in excess of 100 appearances for the club.Tindall, currently skippering his country in the RBS 6 Nations, has enjoyed a glittering career for club and country including, of course, winning a World Cup Winners medal in 2003.His Gloucester career has seen him widely hailed as one of the club’s most influential and consistent performers and his leadership skills have seen a natural progression into the captaincy role.Talking to the club website this week Tindall confirmed that it had been a straightforward decision.“I didn’t really entertain the idea of being anywhere else to be honest. I love the club, the supporters, the area. Signing on again wasn’t a difficult decision.” “Brush (Bryan Redpath) and the other coaches have created a great atmosphere around the club and we’re all enjoying our rugby.”“This season has been good but we still have some massive games to come which will determine exactly how good it will have been once it’s all over. I’m looking forward to playing my part.”Head Coach Bryan Redpath admitted he was delighted to secure the services of his skipper: LONDON, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 26: Captain Mike Tindall leads out England during the RBS 6 Nations Championship match between England and France at Twickenham Stadium on February 26, 2011 in London, England.

Photo: Sarah Yoe[Episcopal News Service] Sustainability, “scrappy” churches, funeral home churches, even cave churches, and New York Times best-selling author and church planter Nadia Bolz-Weber were all part of the recent 20th-anniversary celebration of Forma in Garden Grove, California.About 300 Episcopal, Lutheran, Presbyterian and other Christian educators from around the country joined the grassroots Episcopal-linked organization’s Jan. 25-27 celebration, unofficially themed “meeting the church where the church is,” according to Executive Director Bill Campbell.“We are obviously closely tied to the Episcopal Church but consider it part of our mission to reach out in ecumenical fashion and offer resources for the Church,” said Campbell, who assumed his post in August. The organization has about 400 members in 60 dioceses. He said the theme emerged from a common concern of how to “get out beyond the walls of the church and encounter God’s people.”The gathering offered a variety of workshops, networking opportunities, and a presentation by the Rev. Canon Eric Law, founder of the Los Angeles-based Kaleidoscope Institute. He described for conference-goers a “Stewardship-365” online curriculum to expand visions of yearly stewardship campaigns to include year-round explorations of, in addition to money, such currencies as relationships, truth, wellness, gracious leadership, time and place.Guest speakers inspired the gathering with stories of “church in a funeral home” and “scrappy church” and Bolz-Weber, who offered a ‘don’t worry, be church’ message to the gathering.Planting church in a funeral home: funeralhomechurch.comAndrea McKellar told the gathering she lost her job at Old St. Andrew’s Parish and the building in Charleston, South Carolina, in a single vote, but rediscovered church in a funeral home and beyond.McKellar, currently ministry developer for the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina, had been volunteer director of Christian Formation when Old St. Andrew’s voted in 2013 to leave the Episcopal Church.She and about 30 others opted to remain. “I chose to be an Episcopalian because the church accepts you for who you are right now,” she said. “What we do in the streets is as or more important than how we pray on Sunday morning” including standing up against racism, gun violence, discrimination and for environmentalism, she said.Quickly, donations of money, hymnals, prayer books arrived and after meeting in living rooms, the newly-created St. Francis Episcopal Church “found our current location at Stuhr’s Funeral Home in Charleston. We began on Easter morning; it was quite fitting for a resurrection story,” she said.St. Francis sets up and tears down every week. The altar is a folding table. Hymnals and prayer books reside on rolling carts and just about everybody has a job to do. McKellar, who blogs about the experience, said she jokes that she is the only church school director who deals with dead bodies on Sunday morning.Church has evolved from worries about leaky roofs and mortgages to meetings in coffee shops, blessing animals at local dog parks, partnerships with other congregations and with the community.“We adopted a school. We feed people. We do outreach projects with children and families and remember first responders and others on Christmas Eve and partner with other local churches to fight for justice,” she told the gathering. A traditional tithe, ten percent of the church’s income automatically is allocated for outreach “and then we do the rest of our budget,” she said.One of the lessons learned was to embrace death and dying as part of life. “Now, it has been sterilized. We whisk the bodies away for others to prepare. We shield our children from these realities.”Although not always easy, McKellar said the upside of founding St. Francis includes a deepened prayer life, a commitment to helping others, and that: “Every Sunday gets to be Youth Sunday” with a tenth to a third of the congregation typically being under age 18.And one of the main lessons learned: “If you don’t exist for any reason than to serve those in your walls each Sunday, re-evaluate. Go into the community and find out what they think of you or if they know who you are.”‘Scrappy,’ messy, chaotic but church all the same Rather than incense or candles or holy oil, the Rev. Nancy Frausto told Forma conference-goers that her “scrappy” church smells like “the streets of New York City in the summer time.”In other words, “the smell is not always pleasant,” according to Frausto, who serves the multi-ethnic, multi-lingual Trinity and St. Mary’s churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles.“Trust me, we have tried to clean up and beautify the outside and the inside but every time we try to plant some pretty flowers and rosebushes, the next day they get stolen and the empty holes are used as trash cans and/or urinals,” she told the gathering.Rather than meditative silence or bells, her church sounds “like the emergency room at the county hospital,” she said. “It’s chaotic. It’s messy. There is so much suffering and not enough nurses or doctors to tend to all the patients that come in with shattered hearts and broken spirits and yet even with all the noise, if you are lucky enough to be paying attention, you can also hear the sighs of relief of all those who are being healed within its walls.”Frausto described scrappy as “being the underdog, the unwanted, the discarded, the neglected, knocked down at every turn but refusing to give up.“Being scrappy means that the world thinks that you don’t stand a chance and yet you defy the odds and you not only make it — oh no, baby, you thrive. Pushed down, stepped on, broken off, left bleeding in the streets and when the world tells you to stay down, you get up swinging,” she said.For many congregations in struggling communities, church is much more than well-organized liturgy; but a testament to faith.“When you serve a scrappy church, you know this might be the month where you might have to close up shop because the bills have been piling up for too long,” she said. “And yet somehow you make it through. I believe you make it through because of the scrappy people in your church with faith and love for God, who are so strong and amazing.”Scrappy churches survive and thrive “thanks to the love and dedication of all the immigrant families who work so hard to save their church,” she added. “Scrappy churches are made up of a bunch of oddballs that … have been told by society and even by other churches they don’t belong. They have been dealt a crappy hand by an unjust society but they are not victims. They are survivors. They are warriors.”She described a “God, slapping me back to reality” encounter after spending early Sunday morning worrying about the number of people who’d show up, and the shape of the worship. A visitor entered during worship, lit every candle in the back “and she danced.”Afterward, “Shakida” told Frausto she was sleeping outside in the alley “and heard this beautiful music. I knew I had to put on my Sunday best and come in.”Like a lot of transgender women of color, Shakida “had been living on the streets for many years,” Frausto said. “She makes an appearance every so often and every time she comes in, she reminds me that God doesn’t need a perfect choreographed performance. God just needs you to show up and share your joy.”Scrappy church can teach “the big C” church so much, Frausto added.“Lately everyone has been going crazy with this whole the church is dying and, yeah, the numbers are going down, but the population is not going down. People are around. And maybe where churches are dying, we are too afraid to venture outside our doors and come face to face with scrappiness,” she said.While most people just need and want a place to love and be loved, those deemed less desirable, less worthy by society are often outcast. Scrappy churches, she said, are the product of benign neglect and the values of institutional racism and classism that plague the institutional church.While churches often excel at applauding themselves for all their great works, “if the poor, the homeless, the immigrant, the mentally unstable, the person of color, the LGBTQ person, were seen as worthy as middle-class churches, the one I serve would never have been allowed to happen.”Sometimes, when angry or weary she considers throwing in the towel but scrappiness won’t let her, she added. “We are called to action. We are called to speak out against injustice and stand up against the indignity to all people,” she said. “A lot of work has to be done. So much work that you are going to want to give up. But don’t. Find your scrappiness, change the church … change the world.”Bolz-Weber to the church: ‘Don’t worry, be church’Bolz-Weber, a Lutheran pastor, told the gathering the church she founded while in seminary, House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, initially met at an Episcopal Church. It now has a full-time Episcopal priest as pastor, as she spends much of her time traveling and speaking to groups like Forma.House for All Sinners and Saints has about 250 members, mostly aged 22 to 42, single, Lutheran, post-Evangelical, Methodist, agnostic, Reformed, Episcopalian and with no denominational affiliation. Experiences from that church inspired Bolz-Weber to pen two best-selling memoirs, “Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint” (Jericho Books: 2014), and “Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People” (Convergent Books: 2016).She said encouraged the church to tell its own positive stories of faith in the midst of “this other narrative being that is being told around us about what’s happening. Not that it isn’t true, but other things are also true.”“It sounds as if, at this point in time, it is our holy responsibility to tell these stories of the beautiful redemptive things that God is still doing among us, sot hat we cannot be pulled into despair and fear. We can’t afford it; the world can’t afford it.”Addressing worries about dying churches, Bolz-Weber described a trip to Cappadocia, Turkey, several years ago, and witnessing Byzantine Christian iconography carved in caves formed by volcanic rock in what is now a Muslim country.“That is to say we are not the first group of Christians to worry about the decline of Christianity,” she said, amid laughter. “The big, impressive, successful Byzantine Empire fell and yet the church of Christ did not die.”Seeing the iconography prompted her to break into song the song “Christ is Risen,” “a song that, no matter what, will continue to be sung. Because worry or not, the tomb is empty and God will be praised.”Of the worry about declining mainline churches, born of fear in a scarcity-driven society and economy, she said: “The thing is, is that buildings, numbers, money and power and other aspects of worldly success may be signs of a kingdom … but not necessarily signs of the kingdom.”Instead, she suggested the church focus on its true mission.“Society will still have Fortune 500s for profits and nonprofits for services and day care centers for children and Elks Clubs for socializing and Starbucks for over-priced coffee and many other things we may never be … but you know what the culture around us will never do? Preach the Gospel. Administer the sacraments. Proclaim forgiveness of sins. Ever. You know why? That’s our job, our main job. No one else is going to do it.”A parishioner’s Facebook post about finding a way not “to mentally eviscerate” tailgaters and the irritating and challenging people he encountered every day offered a perspective. His struggle ended “when I served somebody communion at House of All,” she paraphrased the Facebook post. “I looked at you and said, ‘Child of God, the body of Christ, broken for you.’”He, “like so many of us, is changed by the word of grace he hears in church,” she said. “He has a frame of grace through which to see even the people he can’t stand. I argue this wouldn’t happen alone. This is why we have Christian community, so we can stand together under the cross and point to the Gospel, a gospel that Bonhoeffer said is hard for the pious to understand.”The gospel, she said, confronts us with the truth: “You are a sinner, a great desperate sinner. Now, come as the sinner you are, so that God can bless you. God wants you and your imperfect shimmering glory. We have to hear again and again who God is for us and what God has done on our behalf.”Offering a way to measure success she said: “If at your church the word is preached and Eucharist shared and water poured and forgiveness of sins is received, then congratulations, your congregation is a success.”The church will only die when “we forget what the definition of church is and when we forget whose the church is.”She added that “no matter what happens, people will still continue to gather in the name of the triune God, and to talk about the night Jesus was betrayed, to hold up bread and say it is his body, for forgiveness for you and give it to their friends.”She is a Christian, she said, because the gospel helps her to see herself differently, to see the world differently and to see others differently.“At House for All Saints and Sinners, the absolution we all use in the liturgy is, ‘God who is gracious and merciful and slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, loves you as you are … and by his authority, I declare to you the entire forgiveness of all of your sins.’“No one says that — to me in yoga class. I need to hear it.”And secondly, “I’m Christian because I need the gospel so I can see the world differently … and because I have seen the way God makes us into agents of what we’ve received.“In the same way that hurt people hurt people, it is also true that forgiven people forgive people, loved people love people and grateful people are generous people. To be receivers of God’s grace and mercy is to see the world differently and I need this desperately.”Thirdly, “Grace is a double-edged sword. It pushes me to places I don’t want to go. A place where grace and mercy are true for me and for those I can’t stand. You know, those who don’t deserve it. Which means God’s grace is for me and everyone who’s ever hurt me and I hate that and I resist that and yet how could it be true for me if it’s not true for them?”–The Rev.

Fornebuporten is one of the office and residential clusters that, in the last two decades, popped up in the land of what once was Oslo’s airport. The site, at the entrance to the Fornebu peninsula, is a gateway to this blooming new district.Save this picture!© Hufton+CrowTwo volumes confine a public plaza which central element is a lowered atrium. Here a variety of retail programs is available not only to the 3000 people working at Fornebuporten but also to all the commuters that will use daily the future Fornebuporten metro station. The building mass surrounding the atrium connects the two building on the basement level. This is where some of the common functions are located such as car and bike parking, changing rooms, kitchen and technical facilities.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe two identical buildings, overlooking the central atrium from opposite sides, are composed by five volumes with the same width but different heights sitting on a glazed base. This gives the impression that the building is floating over the plaza due to contrast of the base’s lightness with the bulkiness of the office volumes. Save this picture!© Hufton+CrowThese volumes cantilever outwards, alternately towards East or West, optimizing this way the daylight intake. Maximizing the daylight areas enables to increase the density of the building. Each floor is planned to host between 250 to 300 permanent working spaces.Save this picture!© Hufton+CrowDrawing visual references from the offshore industry, the 20 meter cantilevers rest on a central core resembling an oil rig. This resemblance symbolically points out the ambition behind the project: Fornebuporten should be a magnet for knowledge-based enterprises and oil and offshore intelligence. Save this picture!SectionThe ground floor is designed to be a welcoming and transparent space, with a continuous curtain wall from floor to ceiling. The office volumes seem to hover over the public ground floor restaurants, coffee shops and cafeterias. The underside of the “hovering” volumes is a playful checkers cladding – the result of the folding of the building’s facades under the cantilevers.

Required fields are marked * Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Pasadena Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on Friday, December 19, 2014, at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 3:00 am.The deterrent effect of DUI checkpoints is a proven resource i n reducing the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug involved crashes. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.In California, this deadly crime led to 802 deaths in 2012 because someone failed to designate a sober driver. Nationally, the latest data shows nearly 10,000 were killed by an impaired driver. “Over the course of the past three years, DUI collisions have claimed 4 lives and resulted in 79 injury crashes harming 114 of our friends and neighbors,” said Pasadena Police Chief Phillip L. Sanchez.Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment with officers checking drivers for proper licensing delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-i mpaired driving. Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent. Nearly 90 percent of California drivers approve of DU I checkpoints.DUI Checkpoints are placed i n locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.Funding for this checkpoint is provided to Pasadena Police Department by a grant from theÂ California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to â€˜Report Drunk Drivers â€“ Call 9-1-1â€™.

The 28-year-old actor was arrested yesterday by the NCB for allegedly procuring drugs for her boyfriend late actor Sushant Singh Rajput and her judicial custody was granted till September 22, 2020. It has been alleged in Rhea’s application that during her questioning which ran into more than 8 hours at a stretch on September 6,7 and 8 by the NCB, she was coerced into making self-incriminatory confessions. Moreover, multiple male officers of the NCB interrogated her and there was not a single lady officer who interrogated her, the application contends. Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Sheela Barse Vs State of Maharashtra wherein it was held that interrogation of females is to be carried out only in the presence of female officers/constables has also been cited. The application states- “The applicant is innocent and has not committed any crime whatsoever. The applicant has been falsely implicated in this case. That the Applicant has been arraigned for an offence punishable under Sections 8(c) read with 20(b)(ii),22,27A,28,29 and 30 of the NDPS Act, 1985. Given that no drugs or psychotropic substances have been seized from the present applicant and the allegations, if any, would pertain strictly to small quantities and given that though Section 27A has been applied, the ingredients thereof have not been made out, the bar under Section 37(1) of the NDPS Act would not apply under the present circumstances. Thus, the offence, if any, is bailable in nature and the applicant ought to be enlarged on bail forthwith.” Referring to the NCB’s remand copy, wherein it is alleged that Rhea ‘procured drugs for her boyfriend Sushant Singh Rajput for consumption purpose’ and ‘managed finances for procurement of drugs for Sushant Singh Rajput’, the applicant contended- “On the basis of these two allegations, the respondents have alleged that the applicant is an active member of a drug syndicate connected with drug supplies. The Respondent’s case is silent as to the amount of financing, quantum of drugs and type of drugs allegedly procured and financed by the present applicant. The case of the Respondents in layman terms is that the applicant would co-ordinate the delivery of drugs for her then boyfriend and occasionally pay for them herself. In essence, her alleged role, if any, is the purchase of a small quantity of drugs for her then boyfriend which would squarely fall within the ambit of Section 20(b)(ii)(A) which is punishable with maximum punishment upto one year or fine or both.” Respondents have used these basic facts to spin a false narrative that portrays the applicant as being someone who finances the illicit traffic and harbouring of individuals under Section 27A of the NDPS Act, the applicant has alleged. Also, the application states that there is a serious threat to Rhea’s life if she were to be unduly detained in judicial custody as she has been at the receiving end of hundreds of death and rape threats. Thus, expeditious disposal of the said application is sought.Click Here To Download Application[Read Application]Next Story

FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail Indiana Part Of National “Sweep” To Halt Robocall OperationsINDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller is suing a Florida-based company, Am-Med Diabetic Supplies, Inc., for allegedly violating Indiana’s Do Not Call laws by making more than 55,000 illegal robocalls to Hoosiers.According to the Attorney General’s lawsuit, the company – also doing business as Beyond Medical USA – made more than 55,000 illegal robocalls to Indiana residents offering diabetic supplies, called more than 25,000 people whose numbers were registered on Indiana’s Do Not Call list, and failed to disclose the true identity of the caller or company when contacting Hoosiers.The AG’s Office received six consumer complaints about the company, which launched the investigation and uncovered the thousands of calls that were made.“Hoosiers are beyond frustrated that they continue to be harassed by unwanted calls, and it’s only getting worse as automated robocalls can be made easier and faster, at a rate of thousands of calls per minute,” Zoeller said. “Though many scam callers are overseas and can easily evade detection, I am focused on stopping Do Not Call violators that blatantly disregard our laws and add to this annoyance and intrusion.”Zoeller’s office is suing the company for violating Indiana’s telephone privacy laws. The lawsuit, filed in Marion County court, seeks civil penalties of up to $25,000 for each wrongful call.Also this week, Indiana joined 10 states, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the U.S. Department of Justice and several other law enforcement entities as part of a national “sweep” to halt robocall operations.Since January 2015, 39 actions have been taken by these agencies to prosecute violators of state and national telephone privacy laws. Through these collaborative enforcement efforts, these agencies have put an end to operations estimated to have made billions of robocalls.In addition to the Am-Med Diabetic Supplies, Inc. lawsuit, Zoeller’s office sued or received court judgments in four other cases for robocall violations since 2015.Lawsuit against CallSocket, LP; CallSocket, LLC; Ultimate Tubs, LLC; Hydrant Media, LLC for making alleged illegal calls offering walk-in bathtubs.Default judgment obtained against Jerome Edmond for making illegal robocalls to sell home security systems and for impersonating ADT home security systems representatives.Default judgment obtained against Wayne Walton and Space Coast Holdings for making illegal robocalls offering home security systems.Settlement agreement reached with Caribbean Cruise Line, Inc., Linked Service Solutions, LLC, Economic Strategy, LLC, Scott Broomfield, Jason Birkett and Jacob DeJongh for allegedly making political survey calls which were thinly disguised illegal robocalls offering cruises to the Bahamas.Unwanted calls and robocalls are the most common complaint received by the Indiana Attorney General’s Office, with more than 14,000 complaints received last year and complaints in 2016 arriving at a rate of more than 50 complaints per day.Zoeller reminded Indiana residents to sign up for Indiana’s Do Not Call list, which helps to deter unwanted sales calls and text messages, by visiting www.IndianaConsumer.com or calling 1.888.834.9969.Additionally, Zoeller urged Hoosiers to take advantage of available call-blocking options to help stop scam calls. The Attorney General’s Office created a call-blocking reference sheet to inform the public about available options and encourage development of new options. The FTC also shares call-blocking tips here.People who receive an unwanted call can file a complaint by visiting www.IndianaConsumer.com or calling 1.888.834.9969.Zoeller thanked Deputy Attorney General Ernani Magalhaes for his work on this case.
