Niall O’Connor was one of the stars of the weekend despite being on a losing side. Connacht fought right to the death to see an end to their losing streak but a last gasp try from Gloucester’s Jonny May prevented that from happening.Connacht head coach Eric Elwood said “We felt this was the night we would end our losing streak and after the effort and commitment, it is a quiet dressing room.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS DUBLIN, IRELAND – DECEMBER 17: Luke Fitzgerald of Leinster scores a try during the Heineken Cup match between Leinster and Bath at Aviva Stadium on December 17, 2011 in Dublin, Ireland.

Just one of seven of their triesRound 4 of the Heineken Cup saw return fixtures offering plenty of surprises, writes Rugby World reader Sam Durham. Leicester held off Clermont, Gloucester narrowly beat Connacht at Kingsholm whilst Leinster thrashed Bath in a seven try thriller, writes Sam Durham.Leinster had an outstanding performance, putting seven tries past Bath in front of over 45,000 people at the Aviva Stadium. Leinster chief coach, Joe Schmidt said “Some of our handling and some of the running lines were superb.”But Schmidt expected his players to put maximum effort in throughout and said “We are obviously delighted to get five points, but we eased off towards the end which was disappointing.”Clermont couldn’t manage back-to-back wins against Leicester but coach Vern Cotter expressed their players motivation to reach the final stages of the tournament. “We’ve had one quarter-final in the Heineken Cup and our boys would love to have recognition on the European stage – it would be great.”But Cotter remained realistic about their chances and said “Ulster are still in, Leicester are still in and we are still in. I know this Leicester team is capable of getting a result against Ulster so nothing is done yet.” He added “We were in control of our own destiny and to lose it like we did after all the good rugby we played was difficult to take.”Other results included Edinburgh beating Cardiff Blues at Murrayfield, Biarritz taking down Treviso, Ulster thrashing Aironi, Racing Metro beating London Irish and Montpellier drawing with Glasgow 13-13. Whilst Harlequins beat Toulouse 31-24, Northampton thrashed Castres by 45 points to 0 at Franklins Gardens to round off the weekend.

The members of the Commission sent their wishes for a full and speedy recovery to Rabbi Shear Yashuv Cohen, Chair of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel’s Committee for Interreligious Dialogue. The Commission also congratulated the Rt Revd Michael Ipgrave on his appointment as Bishop of Woolwich and Canon Guy Wilkinson (a past Anglican coordinator of the Commission) on his investiture as CBE.The theme of the Commission’s meeting was ‘Religion and Democracy’ in both traditions. The paper presented by Dr Jane Clements on ‘Anglicanism and the Secular State’ explored the dynamic between the Kingdom of God and the earthly realm in accordance with the method of scripture interpreted in the light of tradition and reason.Rabbi Dr Rasson Arousi’s presentation explored ‘Democracy in Judaism’s Political Vision’. He compared contemporary democratic values and practices with Judaism’s ideals of governance, participation and accountability of even the highest political authorities to religio-ethical values.The programme included a visit to the Bodleian Library and a fascinating survey of Medieval Jewish Oxford. Rabbi Prof Avraham Steinberg then delivered a highly illuminating lecture on Jewish Medical Ethics at the Oxford Chabad Society attended by local multi faith audience.The commission discussed various matters of concern, including the recent Private Member’s Motion that related to Israel/Palestine at the Church of England’s General Synod. There was acknowledgement that this had caused much distress within the Jewish community in Britain and also within the Christian community as well as in Israel and beyond. At the same time, appreciation was expressed for the efforts of all those who were engaged on the issue to introduce greater understanding and a wider perspective. The Commission discussed steps that could be taken to address the complexities of the challenges raised.The participants looked forward to their next meeting in 2013.The Most Revd Michael Jackson Rabbi Dr Rasson AroussiThe following are members of the Commission:Delegation of the Chief Rabbinate of IsraelRabbi Dr Rasson ArousiRabbi Dr David Rosen CBE, KSGRabbi Prof Abraham SteinbergRabbi Professor Daniel SperberMr Oded Wiener, Director General, the Chief Rabbinate of IsraelDelegation of the Archbishop of CanterburyThe Most Revd Dr Michael JacksonThe Rt Revd Dr Michael Ipgrave OBEMrs Clare AmosDr Jane ClementsThe Revd Dr Toby Howarth Secretary for Inter Religious Affairs to the Archbishop of CanterburyThe Revd Rana Youab Khan, Archbishop of Canterbury international Inter-religious Dialogues Assistant An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Knoxville, TN Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Tags Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

La Sociedad Misionera Doméstica y Extranjera es por naturaleza toda ella misión, todo el tiempo y en todos los niveles de la Iglesia. Ya logramos progresos. Nos comprometemos a seguir avanzando con la ayuda de la gente de la Iglesia Episcopal”.Con un enfoque en las Cinco Marcas de la Misión, el Informe del 2015 a la Iglesia es una revista interactiva que incluye videos, fotos y relatos que detallan cómo los recursos de toda la Iglesia se han puesto a la disposición de los niveles locales. La página del documento 200 + incluye un extenso apéndice organizado por diócesis para una referencia rápida.Dado que el presupuesto de la Iglesia Episcopal se basa en las Cinco Marcas de la Misión, “esto nos permitió juntamente, al personal y al Consejo Ejecutivo, en colaboración con gente de toda nuestra Iglesia, desarrollar este trienio algunos de los ministerios más creativos y de impacto convincente”, dijo McDonald.“El propósito del informe es involucrar al conjunto de la Iglesia Episcopal en una conversación acerca de la misión con el fin de dotar a todos los episcopales a que sean misioneros que involucren al resto del mundo en la transformación que encontramos en el evangelio”, dijo Alexander D. Baumgarten, Director de participación pública y comunicaciones de misión de la Iglesia Episcopal. “A lo largo del informe, verá la pregunta: ´¿Cómo podemos colaborar con usted?’ Esperamos que los episcopales respondan ampliamente a esta pregunta en toda la Iglesia, y la página del informe en nuestro sitio web tiene para ese fin un formulario de respuesta”.El Informe del 2015 a la Iglesia se centra en las Cinco Marcas de la Misión: Proclamar la Buena Nueva del Reino; enseñar, bautizar y nutrir a los nuevos creyentes; responder a las necesidades humanas a través del servicio caritativo; tratar de transformar las estructuras injustas de la sociedad, para desafiar a la violencia de cualquier tipo y buscar la paz y la reconciliación; esforzarse por salvaguardar la integridad de la creación y sostener y renovar la vida de la tierra.McDonald explicó que el “Informe del 2015 a la Iglesia es amplio, aunque no se pudieron incluir todas las misiones y los esfuerzos de este ministerio”. Entre los detalles que se presentan están: nuevas iglesias y ministerios iniciados durante este trienio; trabajo por la justicia racial; la buena nueva del programa diocesano de asociaciones; el Cuerpo de servicio de jóvenes adultos, y otros esfuerzos para hacer normativa del servicio misionero; sostenibilidad de la IX Provincia; ministerios universitarios; ministerios del jubileo; subvenciones y becas; zonas misioneras; el evento de la juventud episcopal (EYE14).McDonald llegó a la conclusión de que el “Informe del 2015 a la Iglesia se ha creado para celebrar el increíble trabajo que el personal ha realizado en colaboración con muchos otros a través de la Iglesia Episcopal y de la Comunión Anglicana. En él se informa de nuevo sobre nuestros objetivos específicos y resultados mencionados en nuestro actual presupuesto. Esperamos que exprese la emoción que sentimos por la misión como el latido del corazón de la Iglesia, y la inspiración del Espíritu de Dios que encontramos en esa misión”.

–Report and photo by Gloria RubacFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Rodrick Reed stands beside Sandra Reed and Pam Perillo (above) at a rally held March 20 for Rodney Reed, an innocent man on Texas death row. The rally was held to build up support for a May 17 evidentiary hearing which could set Rodney Reed on his path to freedom. His mother, Sandra Reed, told the crowd: “In my mind, in my spirit, I feel that change is in the air. And change is long overdue. In this courthouse there’s inequality, racism, conspiracy, prejudice against the poor. But we, the Reed family, are staying strong.” A highlight of the rally was the introduction of Pam Perillo, who had spent 39 years in Texas prisons, 19 of them on death row, and had faced two execution dates. Another speaker gave an update on the critical health of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal and all got a copy of the new Jamal Journal to learn more information. Rodrick Reed, one of Rodney Reed’s six brothers, ended the rally saying, “All we are asking for is a fair trial. Give Rodney a fair trial and Rodney will free himself.”

Reuters reports that CME Group says it is “only in listening mode,” and that no changes are permanent. CME Group has been talking with customers about potential adjustments, as the discussions signal a new way in which the oversupply has been affecting day-to-day operations in the U.S. farm sector.Reuters says that farmers who rely on CBOT futures are beginning to lose faith in a critical hedging tool to offset the risk of raising crops and defend themselves against price swings. At issue for CME is a discount for corn and soybeans in the U.S. cash markets, where farmers sell their physical harvests, relative to the company’s soybean and corn futures contracts. Normally, the global futures benchmarks come together with cash prices at delivery points along the Illinois River when the futures contracts are expiring. But, some have not in recent months.

Close up of a fossilized shark tooth. Students in summer school at Nimitz Middle School are experiencing the connection between art and science with the help of University of Texas Permian Basin and the Ector County ISD Innovation Department.UTPB Associate Professor of Art Chris Stanley said the innovation department wanted to make the connection between art and science. On Tuesday, they were creating ceramics out of soda ash as part of a variety of enrichments that have been added to summer school classes this year.Students also looked at 89 million year old shark’s teeth under the microscope.“We use it in a way that the indigenous potters of the Americas would have used it to create burnished pottery in the style of Maria Martinez the potters of the Candil Alphonso Pueblo House. Those are in the kiln right now. Then we’ll bring the trailer up in a couple of days and horse manure fire those, so they’ll be mirror black,” Stanley said.“This week, we’ve been playing with Egyptian use of salt, or soda ash, the material that was called Egyptian paste. One of the most famous pieces of Egyptian faience was William the Hippo. They think William was made about 4,000 years ago,” Stanley added.The method will help them learn the effects of the soda ash, which Stanley said will eventually make a glaze just through evaporation and firing.Chief Innovation Officer Jason Osborne was trying out some of the material. He said the students were saying how hard it was to work with.“These are opportunities for kids to be creative during enrichment and be exposed to things they normally don’t do in the school,” Osborne said. “The pottery is something we want to start embedding into classrooms, as well.”He said they want to tie it across curriculums such as social studies, geology and math.Osborne said the innovation department and content coordinators with ECISD are working together to see what that will look like.“Mr. Stanley is super excited, too, because obviously that exposes more kids to art and creativity so it’s just another addition to a wonderful partnership with UTPB,” Osborne said. “I think it’s cool, too. He’s teaching them an ancient art form, something that a lot of folks really don’t know about …”He added that the enrichment classes have been hugely successful this year.Matthew Hulsey, an 11-year-old going into sixth grade in the fall, was making a cat with a crown.“It’s kind of hard, but it’s pretty cool how you can make it into different kinds of shapes,” Hulsey said of the material. “I do a lot of art with pencils. I draw real amazing robots and stuff and animals sometimes. I have a little bit of experience with my hands.”Eleven-year-old Haylee Vigil, who also is going into sixth grade, said she thought the clay was easy to work with. She was making a turtle.“It’s fun,” Vigil said of summer school. “It’s better than regular school.”Clarabel Olivas, a UTPB student who was helping with the enrichment class, said the enrichment classes are beneficial.“I think that the enrichment helps present the information … in a bite-size manner. It makes it easier for the kids to comprehend and also they’re having fun while they’re doing it,” Olivas said.
