Ireland v Wales – Five Things we learnt

first_imgIreland started well but by the end they were hanging on. However, there were encouraging signs from Schmidt’s patched up side The most divisive man in Irish rugby continues to be the Limerick flyer Simon Zebo. At full-back he was dominated in the air and stuck a kick out on the full when under no real pressure having gone first receiver. He also showed questionable defensive decision-making at times. Correspondingly,  outside Sexton, he was Ireland’s most potent running threat and contributed two superb breaks.Catch me if you can: Simon Zebo was one of Ireland’s best attackersThere’s a tendency among Irish fans to favour those who can do the mundane rather than the extraordinary but it would be remiss to underrate Zebo’s line-breaking ability and timing onto the ball. It’s a skill we lack elsewhere in the team, where the centres are picked for their defensive understanding and Trimble is selected for rib-breaking hits and kick-chase. Zebo poses a risk but a risk we need to take.Expanding by degreesIf England’s win over Scotland was like the World Cup never happened, this game showcased a little more willingness to play rugby. Wales reverted to type a little but there were some encouraging signs that Ireland were looking to expand the template of kick-and-chase that has proved successful – but limiting – so far under Schmidt.Expansive game: Johnny Sexton typified Ireland’s willing to run the ballThere was a desire to run the ball from parts of the pitch they have previously always kicked from, and if they aren’t quite offloading yet, it at least appeared on a handful of occasions like the ball-carrier was looking for the offload before sensing it wasn’t quite on. Ireland ran out of puff and ideas in the second half, but the signs of what they were trying to do were encouraging.Tight concerns By Whiff of CorditeIreland managed a draw in their opening match against Wales, and with the dust settling on the performance and result, the feeling is one of the glass being half full. We were fearful going into the game, so a draw was a better outcome than expected. Blowing a 13-0 lead is usually cause for regret, but in the end it was Ireland who were hanging on, as Wales edged the second half. In short, we’ll take it and move on to ParisA classically Oirish performanceAnyone who recently read Tom English’s No Borders will recognise that this performance could have come at any time in our history. A roaring start, followed by a sticky patch in the middle and hanging on at the end; it’s the classic Oirish template from the amateur era.No quarter given: CJ Stander was superb in a game Ireland could easily have lostWhile much has been made of Schmidt’s mentality sea-change, making Ireland more process-focused, and less reliant on emotion, this was a bit of a throwback to the Deccie Kidney, Warren Gatland or Mick Doyle era. Take your pick from any era in the last 100 years.Back-row positivesThere was plenty of pre-match hullabaloo about Wales’ ritzy twin-openside backrow, but in the end they were dominated by Ireland’s somewhat more mundane workhorses. Despite all the ‘genuine 7s’ being on one team it was Ireland who won the breakdown thanks to their effective clearing technique. Justin Tipuric never quite got his linking game going, and for all his outstanding talent, the criticism against him remains that he can spend too long on the fringes of matches.On the charge: Jamie Heaslip carried hard during the gameFor Ireland, Stander was superb on his debut, Tommy O’Donnell was his usual Stakhanovite self and Jamie Heaslip was probably the best player on the pitch, leading the tackle count and winning hard yards in the tight exchanges. With Sean O’Brien to come back, this unit can get even better. Meanwhile, for Wales, it’s back to the drawing board and the ambitious double No 7 experiment may be put away, with Dan Lydiate potentially returning.Simon Zebo – worth the risk? Ireland go to Paris and should win against a French team that appears to have taken up exactly where they left off. The only concern is that the French could scrummage them off the park. Ireland’s tight five struggled at times, especially on the right hand side of the scrum where Nathan White is a limited player at this level, and Mike McCarthy – for all his good form this season – it’s not certain he has the energy levels for this level of rugby.Sorely missed: MIke Ross’ scrummaging power is much needed in the tightHis main strengths are the heft he brings to scrums and mauls, but Ireland’s maul – despite one very effective rumble – has been largely put on hold, and the scrum struggled badly. It could be that Mike Ross is patched on and wheeled out for 50 minutes of scrummaging, but McCarthy is likely to be retained for now.

Richard Russell says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Comments (17) June 8, 2013 at 7:19 am One chapter left out of the biography of Malcolm Boyd is the fact that he came to Indianapolis at the invitation of then Bishop John P. Craine, to act as the priest for St. George’s Church, a small parish not far south of downtown. However, Canon Boyd also was active in the beginning of St. Timothy’s parish much further south. It is perhaps appropriate that the St. Timothy’s church building is even now the most contemporary church structure in the Diocese of Indianapolis. Canon Boyd was welcomed there in a visit some years ago. The current rector is the Rev’d Rebecca Nickel. February 28, 2015 at 6:52 pm Fr. Malcolm Boyd died on February 27, 2015.

He turned to me, and ask “What do you think about that?” treating me as an equal in the discussion-impressive.And when he served as the pastor, when Father Steins was on vacation, to this largely Black middle class (doctors , lawyers, teachers etc.) flock, he began his sermon with “For Lent, I’m giving up playing games with God”.

Another visionary from that time was (Sister) Corita Kent, whom I also met in New York in the 60s. I still have some of her incredible prints on my apartment walls. That was a very different time, and I was fortunate to be there and caught up in much of the excitement and passion people like them engendered. [The Episcopal News, Diocese of Los Angeles] These days, the Rev. Canon Malcolm Boyd prefers quiet revolutions to the public upheavals that have distinguished his life and times for decades.The Hollywood executive turned Episcopal priest, Freedom Rider, anti-war and gay rights activist, author, playwright, social critic and church revivalist will be 90 on June 8 and has been busy being filmed for a documentary about his life.“This is the first time anyone has made a film of my life,” he chuckled during a recent telephone interview from his Los Angeles-area home, adding: “I just show up and I’m filmed.”On April 27, Los Angeles filmmaker Andrew Thomas was on hand to document the Lambda Literary Foundation’s 25th annual benefit event OUTWRITE! honoring Boyd and other celebrated West Hollywood LGBT literary pioneers.Malcolm Boyd, photographed for an interview after the 1965 publication of Are You Running With Me, Jesus? a book of unconventional but deeply devout prayers that made Boyd an international celebrity.Perhaps best known for Are You Running with Me, Jesus? “a little book of prayers” he wrote in 1965, Boyd still is working, both as writer-in-residence of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles and as a regular columnist for the Huffington Post, exploring issues of life, death and aging gracefully, with his characteristic sense of humor.Like a recent column about attempts to renew his driver’s license that ultimately yielded the desired result.“Let’s just say I’m legal now,” he laughed.Despite his advanced age, “Retirement wasn’t a reality, obviously. It’s kind of a process,” Boyd said. So is reflection, and the documentary undertaking by the award-winning Thomas has offered ample opportunity for that.“Malcolm and Mark (Thompson, an author and Boyd’s partner of 30 years) and I went to Grace Cathedral and walked the labyrinth. He spoke at some events,” Thomas said during a recent telephone interview. “We’ve done four interviews with Malcolm so far; we just sit in a room quietly and we don’t deal with questions; we deal with themes and see where it takes us.“Malcolm has forgotten more than I’ll ever learn,” added Thomas, who hopes to complete the film in time for a fall release. Thomas has written, produced and/or directed highly acclaimed episodes of such TV series as “COPS” and “Modern Marvels.” He has received several Emmy award nominations for work on the History Channel, A&E, Discovery and the Sci-Fi Channel. His 2009 film “The Anatomy of Vince Guaraldi” about the jazz great has accumulated five film festival Best Documentary awards.Ironically, it was that film which led him to Boyd, he said.“Guaraldi composed ‘Cast Your Fate to the Wind’ and the music for ‘Peanuts’ and I realized that Malcolm worked with Vince twice in his life,” Thomas recalled. “[Vince] composed all the music for the very first jazz mass at Grace Cathedral and Malcolm did the sermon and then a month later, Malcolm did a series of performances at the hungry i [a café in San Francisco],” he recalled.After some initial checking, Thomas discovered Boyd was alive and well and “living about two miles from me,” the filmmaker recalled. “It was a wonderful, serendipitous moment to know that one of your heroes is still alive.”Even more serendipitous has been his discovery of historical “reel to reel” film footage of Boyd and other unpublished materials, along with interviews of people from seminal moments in Boyd’s life.Like a conversation with Penny Liuzzo, daughter of Detroit homemaker Viola Liuzzo, who was part of a group that met weekly at Boyd’s apartment during his Wayne State University chaplaincy days. Viola Liuzzo was so inspired by Boyd’s civil rights activism she left home and family to work for voter rights. She was murdered on March 25, 1965, the last night of the Selma, Alabama, voting rights march.And like Woody King Jr., “the great actor who worked with Malcolm on ‘A Study in Color’ and ‘Boy’ and a lot of those somewhat subversive plays Malcolm did about racism back in the early 1960s,” Thomas said.“[King] said Malcolm would never bring up religion or Christianity … but after working with him for a few weeks, they all realized they were inspired to go back to the word.“[Malcolm] inspires people to go on their own journey,” Thomas said. “It reminded me of the time we were taking a walk and Malcolm said, ‘the point here is not to spend your life looking for God but to allow God to find you.’ It’s typical of his way of twisting the traditional mundane approach to life and trying on a different hat and looking at it from a new perspective.“It’s part of his incredible deep well of empathy. That’s just who Malcolm is.”‘Trailblazer, truth-teller, courageous witness,’ reluctant heroBoyd was born in Buffalo, New York on June 8, 1923 to fashion model Beatrice Lowrie and financier Melville Boyd, “an alcoholic and womanizer. I later understood him and conducted his burial service. His father was an Episcopal priest, but he died so young,” Boyd said.After his parents divorced in the 1930s, Boyd and his mother moved to Colorado. He survived bouts of atheism during his undergraduate college years, and made his way to Hollywood where he worked as a junior producer before entering seminary in 1951.He was ordained to the priesthood in 1955 and after extended studies, became Colorado State University chaplain four years later. There he was dubbed the “espresso priest” for his talks given in coffee houses and bars.He has written more than 30 books and is considered an icon for righteous social struggle and a hero to many, including author Nora Gallagher and gay rights activist the Rev. Susan Russell.“There are so many things I could say about Malcolm Boyd as a trailblazer, truth-teller, and courageous witness to the power of God’s inclusive love,” said Russell, a blogger, Huffington Post contributor and senior associate at All Saints Church in Pasadena.“It is no exaggeration to say that his Are You Running With Me, Jesus? fed the hunger of a generation of people who had given up on the church or anyone connected with it having anything relevant to say. His willingness to put his faith into action by marching in Selma to end segregation was a powerful witness to what former Presiding Bishop John Hines called ‘justice as the corporate face of God’s love,’” Russell said via e-mail.“And his example as an out-gay priest in a time when such a thing was practically unimaginable was – and continues to be – an inspiration to all who work for the full inclusion of LGBT people in this church and in this country,” added Russell, a gay rights activist.Gallagher, a parishioner at Trinity Episcopal Church in Santa Barbara and author of “Moonlight Sonata at the Mayo Clinic” (Alfred P. Knopf, 2013) said in the foreword of a reprinted version of Running that Boyd’s famous book of prayers “made it possible for me to imagine a church that had something to do with what was happening in the world, to see that the work of the faithful is to expose injustice.”Yet, Boyd is reluctant to take credit for being an icon for social justice for many, or even a hero to some.He does acknowledge sacrificing personal privacy for public persona, for “belonging to the church” even as early on as 1951, when he dissolved his partnership with Hollywood stars Mary Pickford and Buddy Rogers to enter the Church Divinity School of the Pacific in Berkeley, California.In the 1940s, Malcolm Boyd was a business partner of film star Mary Pickford before he departed the Hollywood scene in 1951 to attend Church Divinity School of the Pacific.Again, with characteristic humor, he quipped that at his going-away party “with a lot of celebrities, gossip columnist Hedda Hopper said that everyone, including the bartender, bowed their heads for the Lord’s Prayer.”But “it was all new ground,” he said recalling tumultuous decades of his life. “I had no textbook. What happened came out of a very strong sense of responsibility because I realized that I was speaking for a number of other people who did not have a voice.”It meant frequently running afoul of authorities, both church and civic. While Boyd was serving as Colorado State University chaplain, students flocked to his coffeehouse campus ministry but “the bishop, without coming to look at the work, characterized it as “beatnik” and said, “you can’t call yourself a beloved child of God if you have matted hair, smell badly or wear black underwear.”“To me, this was blasphemy,” Boyd recalled.“I thought, if this was the church, then to hell with the church because it wasn’t the church of Jesus Christ. And if it wasn’t the church of Jesus Christ, then let me get out where I could breathe fresh air. Then, I answered him, that yes, you can call yourself a beloved child of God if you have matted hair, smell badly or wear black underwear.”He moved on, invited by then-bishop of Michigan Richard Emrich to serve as Wayne State University chaplain in Detroit. His activism in full swing, he demonstrated with the likes of Martin Luther King Jr. and Stokely Carmichael and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee as well as Jonathan Daniels, an Episcopal seminarian who was murdered in Selma, Alabama in August 1965 by white supremacists.“I was involved in an enveloping process,” Boyd said.“The summer of ’65 was the hardest,” he said, recalling his own harrowing close calls with white supremacists and feelings of alienation and fear.In 1977, he came out as gay. “At this point, you could throw your hands up and scream, because what do you do with a story like this?” he said, laughing. “Here’s Malcolm Boyd, with all of this — terribly controversial — and now on top of everything, he’s a queer?”Malcolm Boyd and author Mark Thompson have been a couple for 30 years. Photo/Mary GlasspoolBack in Los Angeles, he served local parishes, continued writing and public speaking engagements and met author and photographer Mark Thompson, his life partner of 30 years.He now considers himself an elder and his life “an odd story, to put it mildly. It was quite a lot to live through, so I’m grateful to anybody who helped — and a number of people did.”Aging and the prospect of turning 90 brings yet new “surprises. It’s like being on the Titanic. You’re out there on the ocean and somebody spots an iceberg. It ain’t going away.”He added that: “Wouldn’t it be great if all of us — you and I, for instance — might take ourselves a wee bit less seriously?All kidding aside, he still accepts occasional preaching and speaking engagements and is spiritual director to about a dozen people. Always the activist, he adds: “I accept myself as an elder. I think elders need to analyze their own position in society and in some cases argue with society about what their position is because I think there’s all sorts of stereotypes about elderly people right now.”Perhaps his own experiences could still serve as a primer for the church: “There’s too much talk about the future of the church and meetings and discussions,” he said. “If you have faith, the main thing now is to move, one foot ahead of another, and to trust in God.”As always, Boyd looks to the future with hope, adding: “Let’s do this again in 10 years.” Submit a Press Release June 7, 2013 at 4:57 pm I worked with Malcolm in the Santa Monica parish for a decade. In addition to everything said about him in the above sketch, I can attest to his being a loyal friend, a , a great preacher, a peacemaker, and a gifted teacher. One Lent he led an adult group in a study based on his book, “Take Off the Masks.” Each member made a mask to wear. In sessions that proved to be transformative, members shared the “masks” they had worn in life and were brave enough to begin taking off. Malcolm Boyd is a national treasure. Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books July 16, 2013 at 1:47 am I am 83 and was a parishioner at St. Augustine-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church (St. As) in Santa Monica when Malcolm Boyd and Fred Fenton were both there. I want to testify to the social climate that Malcolm had to overcome. I grew up in the 1930s and ’40s in the Midwest (Indianapolis) where it was assumed that homosexuality was a rare but very grave sin. I received an A.B. frm Harvard in the early 1950s where I was taught that homosexuality was an illness and a sign of immaturity. I met my first self-avowed homosexual in my senior year at Harvard, and he was a French student, not an American. I didn’t meet any openly homosexual prople in the U.S. Air Force in which I served in the mid 1950s during which time I witnessed the dishonorable discharge for homosexuality of a master sargent just 2 months before he was eligible to retire with full benefits. I made my first homosexual friend while living in Palo Alto in the very late 50s where my children were introduced to homosexuality without the negative assumptions I was reared on. I witnessed the alienation of some of my fellow parishioners at St. A’s when Malcolm, an openly “gay” man living with another openly “gay” man, came there as a priest.It was very difficult, very dangerous– and so very courageous, to come out as a homosexual in those days. But it was very important to the growing acceptance of homosexuality as a “normal”, acceptable expression of sexuality because it broke down the demonization of homosexuality.

I was thrilled to actually meet Malcolm, get him to autograph several of his books, and with several others, have dinner with him at a conference LA a few years ago. As I age, not sure as gracefully, he continues to inspire me. Thanks for a great article about a truly great man. Rector Belleville, IL December 29, 2013 at 12:25 am i met Malcolm Boyd in the early 1970s when he was staying at Mishkanot ha Shananim the official guest house of the City of Jerusalem. At that time, my late husband, Wallace Hirsch, was working for the JJerusalem Foundation, under the inspirational leadership of Mayor Teddy Kollek. AS Wally was a recent immigrant from the US, personable and knowledgable, he was included in activities for new English-speaking guests at Mishkanot. And there Wally and Malcolm met. For weeks thereafter they explored the city, met many local people from various backgrounds, and talked and talked and talked. Malcolm joined us at our weekly Friday night Sabbath dinner in our small apartment, with its pi’not ohel (tiny dining nook). Our daughters, then 12 and 7, helped serving the meal — usually a vegetable soup, grilled chicken, rice and an American-style salad. Dinner ended with my ‘famous chocolate brownies. We were sorry to see Malcolm leave at the end of his visit, hoping he left taking some of Jerusalem’s magic with him. Sadly Wally died not long after Malcolm left. I am hoping that Malcolm still remembers us — and particularly my dear Wally, who loved sharing ‘his’ Jerusalem with visitors to our city and found a ‘soulmate’ in Malcolm Boyd. People John McHugh-Dennis says: Marian Febvre says: The Rev. Fred Fenton says: June 7, 2013 at 9:02 pm My path crossed with Father Boyd during the upheavals at the end of 60s in New Haven. I met him at a time when my life was changing and he was a brave man and influence. I’m so glad that life has been good to him. A lot of his advice helped me through fearsome times or a middle class woman who had never been brought up to be alone. Peace and God Bless, Father.

The residential area where the house MR is located is characterized by a sequence of medium and large houses, the majority of which are located in the front area of the site. This systematic inattentive occupation in relation to the topography and to the scale of a neighbourhood, that is essentially residential, has consolidated a dense building-like structure, very compact in comparison to the other streets of the residential condominium.Save this picture!© Haruo MikamiFaced with this scenario, we thought that we had to innovate in this consolidated urban context. The idea, apparently paradoxical, of building a house with approximately 600 m² that could be identified not by the grandiosity of its dimension, but precisely by the absence of it, and, in particular, by the discretion of its draw,  was one of the most challenging and appropriate alternatives we came up with. The design strategy was, therefore, directed to electing the void space, the non-built space, as the main element of the concept.Save this picture!© Haruo MikamiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Haruo MikamiAs a mean to reach the pre-defined end, the house was located along to one of the borders of the site in a way to release, in the opposite direction, the necessary area to build in the void, which composes, and articulates with all the activities of the house. The landscape design creates a pleasant atmosphere. Both the social areas, allocated in the ground floor, and the intimate areas distributed in the first floor, were purposely planned to be around this space, the most relevant in its entirety, easily recognizable even from the street. All the delimited spaces open directly to the void as if they were part of it.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe limits between the exterior and interior are subtle and lightly delimitated by the doors and windows frames. The spectator’s view easily passes through every place in the house, while being assisted by the constant sight of the landscape area, which functions as a spatial and sensorial orientation reference in relation to permanence and displacement within the house. The understanding of the space is also composed of the visual permeability generated in part, by the integration.Save this picture!© Haruo MikamiThe topography was carefully modified to establish a consistent tectonic relation between the built object and the site. The house sits gently on the site. So, through delicate changes and sections in the topography of the site, a very honest and harmonic dialogue was established between the building and the site. This corroborates with a definition of the house proportions that are appropriate to the scale of a residential area. The intention was to establish an easy way to read the architectonic language.

The Disability Rights Commission was launched today in London. People with disabilities use the Web in large numbers, so why do so many Web site owners, including charities, make it so difficult for them to use their sites? As well as restricting the number of supporters or customers who can access the site, such organisations might also fall foul of the law, both in the US and UK. In the USA, for example, the National Federation of the Blind sued America Online Inc. for “failing to provide access to its site for the disabled.”Read practical advice in Web blind spots by Lisa Vaas at PC Week, and view UK Fundraising’s coverage of the issue.

Philadelphia failure to empty jails causes COVID-19 death

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this The first COVID-19 death in Philadelphia jails occurred on April 14. She was Yvonne Harris, a 48-year-old woman incarcerated at Riverside Correctional Facility. In the meantime, city judges have mocked the danger our incarcerated neighbors face and have only reduced the jail population by 13 percent in the past month — far below what other big cities are doing as well as what activists are demanding.In response to Harris’ needless death, a quickly organized protest held on April 15 at the “Criminal Justice Center” included two life-size cardboard coffins representing two local incarcerated people who have died so far of COVID-19.Protesters yelled ‘Free our people’ as Judge Anne Marie Coyle drove out of Philly courthouse garage.In addition to Harris, a Philadelphia state Department of Corrections prisoner, Rudolph Sutton, died of the virus on April 8. Innocence Project Legal Director Nilam Sanghvi said on April 15: “Mr. Sutton should never have been incarcerated in the first place. … His tragic death underscores the urgent need for the governor, the Department of Corrections, the legislature, and the courts to act quickly so that another factually innocent person does not risk death in prison due to COVID-19.” (Philadelphia Inquirer, April 15)Live reports by cell phone from people inside Philly jails told the demonstrators how difficult it is to be locked up at a time of the deadly pandemic.At one point, participants chased Judge Anne Marie Coyle to the parking ramp and yelled “Free our people” as she drove out. Judge Coyle has refused to let even one prisoner out of jail despite the pandemic’s danger.The two cardboard coffins were left behind, leaning on the wall of the courthouse, the place responsible for both unnecessary deaths. Organizers with the #No215Jail Coalition pledged to hold more rallies whenever anyone dies in the city’s jails of COVID-19.— Report and photo by Joe Piettelast_img read more
