For Back Issues Contact John Denton Services at 01733-385-170 visit No one ever suggested that Stevens was trying to gain an advantage by taking a recreational drug and he was therefore, although he’ll never say it, treated shockingly by rugby’s authorities. The RFU are quick to clamp down on players who transgress, but are often slow to offer them the emotional and pastoral help they often need.Stevens, who last played for England in June 2008 against New Zealand, could have been forgiven for turning his back on rugby after the way he was cast out, as if he had taken performance-enhancing drugs. But he isn’t that sort of character. His glass is always half-full.“That whole experience, getting banned, all led to where I am today, and I’m genuinely a lot happier a person and in a better place. Supporters of all teams have also been so supportive. People were coming up to me and saying, ‘It’s great to have you back’. I was very happy to hear that and humbled too. I didn’t expect it but I’m delighted the rugby public have been so polite and forgiving.”Having hit the ground running with Saracens, a move back into the full England squad is his next target. Stevens’s first big chance to push his claims for a World Cup spot comes next month when the Churchill Cup arrives in England.England Saxons are grouped with Tonga and the USA, the first game taking place against the Eagles on 4 June. From there, his fate is in his own hands because England’s initial 50-man squad for the World Cup is announced on 17 June.Stevens has already won the chocolate-eating competition this season, but nothing would taste sweeter than an England recall.This article appeared in the June 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine.Find a newsagent that sells Rugby World in the UK LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS For matt stevens, life at Saracens this season started with a chocolate-eating contest and will end, he hopes, with a return to the England set-up for next month’s Churchill Cup. The former Bath prop arrived at the London club in January after serving a two-year ban for testing positive for cocaine following a Heineken Cup match against Glasgow in 2008. And after talking to him about his reinvention, it seems that he couldn’t have landed in a better place.“Any player would want to be at Saracens at the moment,” says Stevens, who can play on both sides of the scrum. “They’re ambitious and promote a hard-working ethos. Rugby, more than any sport, is played by a band of brothers and it’s crucial you’re the sort of person who can take the mickey and have the mickey taken out of you.”And Stevens has fitted in well, as team-mate Alex Goode explains: “We have many gifted players in our squad but the real currency in our environment is work ethic and intensity, and Matt doesn’t lack either. In his first training session Matt hardly stopped running for an hour, tackling, chasing, offloading, increasing the intensity of the session all on his own, instantly earning everyone’s respect.”Stevens earned some of that respect with his performance off the pitch on his first day with the club. He was challenged to that aforementioned ‘eat-off’ against James Ellershaw, a big lad himself, and promptly devoured a Mars bar and a bag of chocolates to leave the fellow prop in his wake. He lost his second test, a ‘sing-off’ with Kelly Brown, his version of Bat Out of Hell being trumped by the Scot’s Mustang Sally. But in those cameos he won the hearts of the Saracens players, many of whom must have been sceptical about the mid-season arrival of such a high-profile international player.In recent seasons, Saracens have started a programme to develop their players off the pitch as well as on it. Technical director Brendan Venter had the players reading a book a month and this season they have made trips – as a squad – to the Munich Beer Festival and Miami. Stevens certainly appreciates the club’s ethos.“Getting banned led to where I am today,and I’m genuinely in a better place.I’m delighted the public have been so forgiving”“The way Saracens look after their players away from the match or the training field is crucial and it can be vital when you’re under the cosh,” says the 28-year-old. “The culture is focused on creating happy, fulfilled people off the field. Bear in mind that you’re askinga group of guys to go into a physical contact sport, and to do that well you need a particularly strong mind. Everything you do off the field – how a guy’s family is doing, how he’s doing in his personal life – all add up to how you perform on the field.”“Saracens is a great club to be at. The extra work they do with psychologists or with placing players with businesses in the Cityof London and the speakers they bring in to talk to the guys is creating renaissance individuals. Time will tell if it works on the field.“My feeling is that the owners, the board, the chief executive Edward Griffiths and the coaches want us to win, but they want us to win in the Saracens way. That means living life properly, and having a happy life.“With five minutes to go when the result is on the line, where does a player get his motivation from? It’s not from money but from the bond you have with your team-mates. It’s not just about winning – it has to be about something bigger than that. We all feel we’re a big extended family, but we also know this family honestly cares about all our own personal families. We put it on the line for that.” read more

Rugby World Cup Fixtures 2023 Rugby World Cup Groups What Happens If A Player Is Sent-Off In The World Cup?The 2019 Rugby World Cup has seen a record number of players sent-off for foul play. But what exactly happens when a player is sent off? We take a look below.Welsh lock Huw Richards was the first player sent-off when he was dismissed for punching in Wales 1987 semi-final against New Zealand. Richards never played Test rugby again.James Dalton, the South Africa hooker, was sent off against Canada in 1995 and missed the semi-final and final, and the Canadians Gareth Rees and Rod Snow were also dismissed for their part in a massive brawl in that match in Port Elizabeth.The most significant dismissal was probably Sam Warburton’s in Wales’ semi-final against France in Auckland in 2011. Warburton was sent off for a tip tackle on French wing Vincent Clerc after 18 minutes and Wales lost 9-8.If a player is sent off at the World Cup in Japan the referee who gave him his marching orders has to prepare a report for the disciplinary officer.The player will then appear before a three-person hearing of which two will be former international players, referees or coaches to give more rugby knowledge to the panel. This has been introduced since the 2015 World Cup.The hearings for red cards, and citings, will usually be heard on the Tuesday following a Saturday match so that players will not miss a game they might normally have played in if they are found not guilty. Most parties will attend but video links can be used. We explain the rules and regulations regarding sending-offs in this piece. Rugby World Cup Winners Expand read more
Press Release Service By Melodie WoermanPosted Jul 11, 2018 David Luther Woodward says: [Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] In an overwhelming voice vote, the House of Deputies on July 11 concurred with a plan for liturgical and prayer book revision that had been adopted by the House of Bishops the day before.This sets the stage for creation of new liturgical texts to respond to the needs of Episcopalians across the church while continuing to use the Book of Common Prayer that was adopted in 1979.Resolution A068 originally called for the start of a process that would lead to a fully revised prayer book in 2030. The bishops instead adopted a plan for “liturgical and prayer book revision for the future of God’s mission through the Episcopal branch of the Jesus movement.”The bishops’ amended resolution calls for bishops to engage worshipping communities in their dioceses in experimentation and creation of alternative liturgical texts that they will submit to a new Task Force on Liturgical and Prayer Book Revision to be appointed by the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies.It also says that liturgical revision will utilize inclusive and expansive language and imagery for humanity and divinity, and will incorporate understanding, appreciation and care of God’s creation.The Very Rev. Sam Candler, deputy from Atlanta and one of the chairs of the committee that considered the original version of A068, asked the House of Deputies to concur with the action of the House of Bishops. He acknowledged that doing so would not give deputies everything they had wanted when they had voted on July 7 for expanded prayer book revision in the original A068.Candler said that deputies were proud to have sent a “strong and vigorous resolution on revision of the Book of Common Prayer” to the House of Bishops and that they “heard us and responded with a process for prayer book and liturgical revision.” Concurring with the bishops would “move the process forward,” he said. “The church is always reforming,” he added. “Our prayer is always reforming. We are excited to be part of that.”One line in the bishop’s proposal prompted questions in the House of Deputies. The resolution “memorializes” the 1979 Book of Common Prayer “as a prayer book of the church preserving the psalter, liturgies, the Lambeth Quadrilateral, Historic Documents, and [its] Trinitarian Formularies.”Deputies asked what was meant by the word memorialize. Candler said the word didn’t appear in the rules of General Convention or the House of Deputies, so he was relying on a dictionary definition that means “to commemorate.” He added, “I trust it is a word that commemorates what the Book of Common Prayer is.”– Melodie Woerman is director of communications for the Diocese of Kansas and is a member of the ENS General Convention reporting team.

I do expect additions to authorized texts perhaps in the form of Enriching Our Worship. The inclusive language issue can be addressed as can circumstances in the life of people that call for a recognition by the church. Up until now clergy have had to improvise when these circumstances arise. The process I see outlined here will build on the best ideas and practices to make them available to all.

Now, you can be sure that same old 1979 BCP will be in your pew. But the many of us who have been hoping for and encouraging more open and inclusive liturgies have something to look forward to, as well. Instead of worrying about people leaving TEC, we should be excited about its new potential for growth! Randy Young says: Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Bath, NC Comments are closed. Submit an Event Listing July 12, 2018 at 4:33 pm I’m OK with expanding Enriching Our Worship so long as the ’79 BCP isn’t altered. Aren’t we a big enough tent to let churches decide on some of their own worship? So long as they cannot jettison the current BCP and the EOW additions are approved I say let progressives do their thing and leave others (probably more people than they would know) do their thing with the current Prayer Book. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC July 13, 2018 at 10:53 am Lou, with all Christian love I ask you to look around. TEC is not growing. The more inclusive we try to become, the fewer people are drawn to us. We keep making a bigger tent and end up with fewer people in it. We might ask the “Dr Phil” question,” how’s that going for you” when we assess the directions we’ve taken in the last 40 years. Where are all these people we supposedly have made changes for these past decades to make them feel more welcome? I admit I was a progressive way back when (who wasn’t in the 60’s and 70’s lol) , but at some point, you have to do an honest discernment of the results you were intending vs the results you have achieved and make adjustments to your thinking. Jewels Wolf says: Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Liturgy & Music, Doug Desper says: July 11, 2018 at 9:59 pm Oh I am sure there is. However, if the majority of Episcopalians are against this plan they need to apply large amounts of pressure on their Bishop(s) of their Diocese. I know where I am located in the midwest it will be a hard sell. There is already talk of withholding their pledges for the coming year or reducing by the percentage of how much it will cost using the TEC’s entrie annual budget. It’s going to hurt. And I am sure members are going to be leaving for other churches. By the time 2030 rolls around I’ll be in my 70’s. I don’t care anymore.

I was really certain this was going to be the beginning of the end for TEC. I can go to my grave at least (for now anyway) knowing that the BCP will be treated with more respect that what appeared to be happening within the House of Deputies on July 7.

It was a painful period for many Episcopalians. Yet, the 1979 BCP produced a Book of Common Prayer that was much more inclusive than what we had before. I believe that we need to work on and improve on the successes of the 1979 BCP. The inclusion of same sex liturgy should be a part such a revision but we should also be careful of a completely gender neutral BCP. PEACE TO ALL MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS.

Young people today tend to choose options that offer video (& at least screens for words/photos) and dialogue as well as good preaching – &, of course, many are opting out of institutional religion. For those who remain open to it, it’s vital that contexts rise above patriarchal traditions, and that congregations reach out for greater diversity. July 11, 2018 at 9:34 pm Read carefully David–there’s more between the lines… Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Belleville, IL Rector Smithfield, NC Comments (14) July 23, 2018 at 2:55 pm Jewels,Well said!It seems since the 1928 prayer book was replaced the Church has moved further away from the original Church Doctrine. To the point of being sanctioned by the Anglican Church of England. Our USA Episcopalian Church is now a “Want to be church”! They want to move it away from most everything that brought people like you and I to the church.Predominant changes during Bishop Katharine Schori pushed 1,000’s away from our Church. Apparently Our lleadership learned little or nothing from this experience. As they continue to move the church away from its original doctrine and the wishes of many Episcopalians. July 12, 2018 at 8:35 am I don’t like the one we have–and never have. Not only do you need a road map, once you get there it is hard to recognize! Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Jewels Wolf says: Youth Minister Lorton, VA Lou Schoen says: July 13, 2018 at 5:30 pm I have often said that being Christian is not a popularity contest. The church does not exist to satisfy the itching ears of its congregations and be blown about by every wind of doctrine (Ephesians 4:14) but to proclaim the Gospel, to preach the word whether it is convenient or not, whether it falls on open ears or closed (2 Timothy 4:2). It is sad to me that these things must be pointed out to people who should know better. The Episcopal Church needs to get back to basics rather than straying farther and farther away from them.

You have more hope than I. Memorials are for things dead and gone. Sounds like they’re just going to add more and more new stuff until everyone forgets the original. Even if that wasn’t the intention, it seems the likely result. Every diocese can invent new stuff, which 815 will approve–gotta be inclusive and open-minded with that liberation theology. Soon it won’t be breaking the rules to have “U2charists, Piratecharists, Beycharists,” etc. Use whatever 3 words you like instead of the Trinity. Funny how Episcopalians deride community churches, Baptists, etc. for just teaching whatever the pastor wants. This will give them the chance to do the same. If there are 25 different approved forms for every season, is the church really having “Common Prayer”? Next up, approving Communion Without Baptism, which most do anyway, so it will just be admitting what’s already happening.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago On Friday, Wells Fargo admitted that a computer error, which led to miscalculations left 400 people losing their homes to foreclosure. According to the bank’s quarterly filing to the SEC, the error caused more than 600 customers to be denied or not being offered loan modifications despite being qualified for them, leading to foreclosures for around 400 borrowers.According to its filing, Wells Fargo said that the bank could be subject to “consent orders and settlement agreements with federal and state regulators for alleged servicing issues and practices.”The bank said that regulatory actions, in this case, could include providing customers with a loan modification, refinancing relief as well as foreclosure prevention and action. It said that its mortgage-based liability stood at $179 million at the end of Q2 2018 and it had recorded a provision of $2 million due to loan sales, which decreased net gains on mortgage loan origination and sales activities compared with “a release of $39 million in second quarter 2017.””We incurred net losses on repurchased loans and investor reimbursements totaling $4 million in the second quarter 2018 and $5 million in second quarter 2017,” Wells Fargo said in the filings.The filing came days after Wells Fargo agreed to pay a fine of more than $2 billion to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for allegedly misrepresenting the quality of loans used in residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS). The settlement came in the form of a penalty after allegations that it originated and sold residential mortgage loans that it knew did not meet the standard the bank represented. This allegedly caused investors, including federally insured financial institutions, billions in losses due to investing in these RMBSs which contained loans originated by Wells Fargo, according to a statement by the DOJ.Read more about Wells Fargo’s settlement with the Department of Justice:Wells Fargo Settles Allegations of Fraud for $2.09B in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Servicing Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Previous: Cities With the Biggest Jumps in Single-Family Rentals Next: The Changing Face of Default Servicing Litigation Home / Daily Dose / Technical Error Led to Foreclosures, Says Wells Fargo DOJ Foreclosures Investors Loan Modifcation mortgage RMBS Wells Fargo 2018-08-06 Radhika Ojha Sign up for DS News Daily The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: DOJ Foreclosures Investors Loan Modifcation mortgage RMBS Wells Fargo August 6, 2018 2,053 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe read more
[Photo: Benjamin Adams] Lots of announcements from the Foo Fighters today, who have otherwise been off-the-radar for a while. Dave Grohl and company have just announced a brand new album on the way, Concrete and Gold , due out September 15th via Roswell Records / RCA Records. Following up the band’s 2014 Sonic Highways and 2015 EP Saint Cecilia, the upcoming eleven-track Concrete and Gold record marks the band’s ninth studio album. According to a press release, the new album, produced by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, and Pink), is where “hard rock extremes and pop sensibilities collide.” Grohl describes the new project as “the biggest sounding Foo Fighters record ever. To make a gigantic rock record but with Greg Kurstin’s sense of melody and arrangement… Motorhead’s version of Sgt. Pepper’s… or something like that.” The Foo Fighters previously previewed this latest studio effort with the Grohl’s self-directed video for the lead single, “Run,” which debuted on the first of the month.Watch Dave Grohl’s 8-Year-Old Daughter Rock The Drums In Iceland On Friday With The Foo FightersIn support of Concrete and Gold, the Foo Fighters have also announced an extensive U.S. fall tour in addition to a one-day music festival dubbed CAL JAM 17.
