Woodford, who owns about seven per cent of United, sold his £100m stake in rival Severn Trent last month.Green described the last regulatory review as “tough but fair”, but he said investors were needed to help the industry invest in the next few years.“I would support Neil Woodford in saying it’s important that the regulator makes sure the equity markets get an adequate return, We’ll continue to need high levels of capital,” he said.United, which serves about 7m people in north-west England, blamed regulatory price cuts and higher interest charges for a 24 per cent fall in core pre-tax profit to £196.2m in the six months to 30 September.The group said it was on track to hit its 2015 targets and announced an interim dividend of 10p per share.Green, who will be replaced by defence industry boss Steve Mogford, said he would be interested in company chairmanships. “The job at United is largely done and there are other things I would like to do,” he said.

first_imgAll eight fields of Estádio Universitário de Lisboa were reserved only for rugby, kicking football teams out for two full days. After the first day, we knew who was here to not only participate but to win the main cup.Turf war: CDUL and Cascais produced an absorbing U17 final, with CDUL edging it 8-3 (João Peleteiro)The tournament had a special guest, as former All Black Xavier Rush came to Portugal in his capacity as co-coach of Crawshays.In the U13 group, CF OsBelenenses, one of Portugal’s oldest rugby clubs, took home the main trophy after beating AIS Agronomia (2-1).Bristol took the U15 championship with a narrow (14-10) win against CDUL, who gained solace by bagging the U17 title against GDS Cascais (8-3) in a thrilling game played in heavy rain. The weather certainly didn’t ‘play ball’ over the weekend.As for the grand champions, hats off to Crawshays Youth, who defeated Myerscough College 31-0 to take the main honour. Crawshays centre Ellis Jones was rated Most Valuable Player for the U19 group, with Leo Wallaert (Belenenses) taking the U13 award, Bristol’s Ethan Gaynor the U15 award, and Diogo Cardoso of CDUL the U17 award.Welsh class: Crawshays Youth took the U19 title in some style (Carlos Rodrigues/Move Sports)During a tough time for Portuguese rugby, with the senior squad having just been relegated to the third division of European rugby, the Rugby Youth Festival gave the host country a timely tonic. Here again was the spirit that so impressed the world back at RWC 2007, and the only hope now is that more countries can take part – the French, Italian and Pacific teams that came last year were missed.

About 2,000 players representing 80 teams met in Lisbon last weekend to play 300 matches in a tournament organised by Move Sports, a sports operator and event manager. Between players, staff, families and friends, the two-day competition attracted 18,000 spectators yet rugby wasn’t the biggest part of the weekend… what was, you might ask?The exchange of information, experience and contacts between players from different parts of the globe. As usual the UK attended in force, with entrants including Crawshays Youth RFC (‘home’ for the likes of Dan Lydiate and Luke Charteris), Bristol Rugby and Myerscough College. The UK colleges and rugby academies are among the festival’s greatest enthusiasts, as in the past eight editions there have been more than six teams annually from Great Britain and Ireland.Slipping by: The ball eludes Cascais and Direito’s lineout forwards in the U15 competition (João Peleteiro)For Portugal, this festival is a very big deal, especially as rugby is still a relatively minor sport and almost exclusively amateur. It’s one of those rare opportunities for Portuguese teams to feel the pulse of international rugby, offering young players a platform to show their repertoire of skills. For the coaches it’s a moment to fine-tune their squads for the last throes of the rugby season.The international dimension is what makes the weekend so special. For example, in the U17 category, you could see VRAC from Spain, Lancashire’s Myerscough College and Dublin’s Liberty Saints facing Portuguese teams like GD Direito (whose senior squad played in this season’s Challenge Cup play-offs), CF OsBelenenses, CDUL or Agronomia.Plenty of dash: Bristol narrowly overcame CDUL from the host city to take the U15 crown (João Peleteiro)As for the staff members, this is a massive challenge because they have to prepare their players to face the best (and biggest) opposition they will face all year.And the organisation of the biggest rugby event in the Iberian Peninsula got a big thumbs-up, Henley College coach Pete Glackin expressing the satisfaction of many when he said: “It was an amazing day. This was our second time here; last year we won the Silver Cup, and today was a top day. Competition was good between teams, we had to play our best to top them.”Each team was placed in a group on the first day, with the teams separated into U13, U15, U17 and U19 categories. The U13s played ten-a-side; the U15s played 13-a-side (no flankers); and the U17s and U19s played the full 15-a-side. On the Saturday games were 20 minutes in duration before longer matches for the finals on the Sunday. Bristol and Crawshays Youth were among the winners at the biggest rugby event in the Iberian Peninsula. Francisco Isaac reports on the thrills and spills from Lisbonlast_img read more

I believe that the Archbishop took his place among the many leaders that are required to unite the church. While the Vatican has admittedly had an influence upon other churches, it is not the final authority, nor should it be. For a unified church to come into being, there must be room made at the table for doctrinal and dogmatic differences. If we can set those aside while recognizing the centrality of Christ’s message and ministry, then we can pull each other along as we grasp onto that common thread that holds us together. I am certainly encouraged by what I have seen and heard from this Pope so far. I also am encouraged by the Anglican church and especially the Episcopal church. Each of us have our understandings of the Gospel, how we carry that into the world and how it speaks to us today. I think that the Archbishop did well to remind us that it is not the institution that is important… it is the ministry.

Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR November 1, 2013 at 5:52 pm I was disappointed by the archbishop’s address. It was so predictable, with nothing arresting, nothing new or prophetic. He does mention Pope Francis. I give him credit for that. However, he fails to make a strong point of the Pope’s words and actions, or to call for the WCC and its member churches to support Pope Francis’s brave new beginning. Only a Pope can unite the Christian churches. This could be the Pope we have been waiting for since the WCC was founded. He faces strong, determined opposition, not just from the curia but also from prince bishops throughout the world. Surely the Archbishop of Canterbury and the WCC could offer positive reinforcement of the Pope’s prophetic stand for simplicity of life and service to the poor.

It is a great privilege – more than I can express in words – for me to be here at the opening of the 10th Assembly. Ever since the first Assembly at Amsterdam in 1948, Archbishops of Canterbury have been present at Assemblies, a personal sign of how important the fellowship of churches has been, and still is, for Anglicans. As a result we have sometimes been uncomfortably challenged and even moved to reform ourselves. We have learned so much from our participation in the life of the fellowship. We have made so many friends. Friendship is the seed bed in which unity, the visible unity of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church grows and flourishes.This is my first Assembly. I am enjoying sense of wonder at my smallness, my tiny place among  God’s great Church, which draws together women and men, young and not so young, lay and ordained, from different continents and cultures and different ecclesial traditions. Being here together a fresh vision of that to which we are called. It is an opportunity for genuine encounter, an opportunity to learn about one another and to learn from one another. We must learn to hear Christ through one another. We renew our commitment to the ecumenical journey and the ecumenical task. We need one another.We have travelled to this place praying  –‘God of Life: Lead us to justice and peace.’ Peace and justice begin with us and God. When we are not at peace with God through Jesus Christ we cannot be peacemakers in the world. God calls us to be reconciled reconcilers, reconciled ourselves to God and to each other. Peace and justice become in us a cause for which any sacrifice is worthwhile when they are given birth in each of us and in the church by the Holy Spirit. For that reason we need to be seen again to be a people of prayer; faced with the God of peace and justice our hunger for unity grows, we are able to forgive and love one another with the love that God puts in our lives.It is  God, who is the perfection of unity. In God is the one Father, the one Lord, the one Spirit, who in Christ draws us into unity with God and with one another. (paraphrase of Lambeth 1920). We are to be one, visibly one, so that the world may believe. We are to be one so that the Gospel we preach is not denied by the way we live in separation. We are to be one because we are more effective together than apart. We are to be one – one people worshipping one God Father, Son and Holy Spirit, eating and drinking around the One table of the Lord, for that is Jesus’ prayer for his disciples, then and for us now.The fellowship of churches in the World Council of Churches has helped us Anglicans to understand something of the unity that is God’s gift and our calling. But so often we have made God’s amazing and precious gift sound like an impoverished unity, the life of an inward-looking, self-absorbed community, only intent on self-preservation.Only institutions that are willing to lose their lives for the sake of the good news, the gospel, and for Christ, will find the life God offers. As Anglicans, as the WCC, we must die to live.When we look to God our eyes are turned outwards to His world, and we hear again the command, as Pope Francis said, to be a poor church for the poor. The children of Christ act instinctively to love those who suffer, as He loves us. If justice faints, hope fades. But when justice is loved, and lived, the poor have hope and the whole world begins to sing. Our vision has to be of God and God’s world and the Church made sense of in that perspective. The unity statement before this Assembly tries to capture this vision. To fulfil that vision we need a fresh confidence in the good news as the best way for every human being on the planet, a fresh Spirit of grace to one another, and a fresh commitment to sacrifice all in the name of Christ for unity that reveals Him.  ‘God of Life: lead us together in unity to justice and peace’.

Is there something wrong with what he said, for in your remarks, Reverend, the implications of what you say is he is off base if not missing the mark. Is it that he is not a Progressive enough voice in statement to lead some kind of inspired tilt on the Gospel for your taste? If so, let us hear your statement of what you would have him add. I am most curious to learn of this kind of tilt that you either ask for or are eager to encourage in your criticism of what to my way of listening were the Archbishop’s solid remarks seeking unity of his Anglican authority and Communion. Is this not more his business, than the business of seeking a pathway of the Pope’s way and tastes? I think so, for we have enough of divisiveness in the Anglican way and for my money have a need for hearing words of a more cooling kind that help. At least help with at the least with a calmness and worthiness in a kind of humility of approach. Do you even find a kind of humility in his approach in a charism of friendship?

This implies that the respondents’ bank has sufficient liquidity to bear the operational costs like rents, salary of employees and other office expenses but the depositors are struggling to withdraw their own deposited money.’It is further argued by the Petitioner that depositors of PMC Bank are under serious distress and discriminated under similar situation, without any relief and justice.In addition to this, the Petitioner has asked for an interim financial package for senior citizen depositors who are facing several health issues including various urgent needs in the interest of justice.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

first_imgWABC-TV(NEW YORK) — A Nashville woman filed a $5 million lawsuit against a former New York City police officer who broke into her home, threatened her and yelled racial slurs in the midst of a drunken rage.Conese Halliburton, who is black, filed a federal lawsuit against Michael Reynolds on Wednesday, accusing him of charges including assault, trespassing and emotional distress.While visiting Nashville for a bachelor party in 2018, Reynolds, who is white, kicked in Halliburton’s door and screamed that he would “break every f—— bone” in her neck and called her and her children the N-word, according to the lawsuit.“Approximately eight minutes after invading Ms. Halliburton’s home, terrorizing Ms. Halliburton and her minor children, hurling racial slurs at them, and threatening them with deadly force, Officer Reynolds casually returned to the Airbnb where he was staying when it became clear to him that police were about to arrive,” the lawsuit said. “Upon leaving Ms. Halliburton’s home, a companion of Officer Reynolds yelled out and asked him: ‘Did you make her strip?’”Reynolds, who resigned from the New York Police Department earlier this month, was convicted on charges of assault and criminal trespassing in connection with the July 2018 incident. He was sentenced to 15 days in jail and three years’ probation in December after pleading no contest to four misdemeanors, according to court records.An attorney for Reynolds declined to comment when reached by ABC News.More than 10,000 people signed an online petition calling for his firing in support of Halliburton. Reynolds testified that he and his friends had been drinking before the incident. He could not remember how much he drank, but he said he entered Halliburton’s the home by mistake, thinking that it was his rental property, according to court testimony.“Ms. Halliburton hopes that ex-officer Reynolds has had some time to consider the consequences of his actions while serving his jail sentence,” Daniel Horwitz, the woman’s attorney, told ABC News in a statement Wednesday. “She also intends to continue pursuing this matter until Mr. Reynolds and the other officers who helped him try to cover up his egregious and criminal misconduct are held fully accountable.”Halliburton said the episode had left her and her children traumatized.“My kids want to move. They don’t want to be in that house anymore,” she said at the officer’s sentencing last month. “We don’t have peace. To know that you’ve been living somewhere all your life, and you don’t have that anymore, and where would you go, it’s not fair.”“It’s not fair that somebody can laugh in your face and their friends can laugh about it like it’s a joke, and your life stops, and their life can keep on going,” she added.Halliburton is seeking punitive damages of $3.75 million and compensatory damages of $1.25 million, according to the suit.Earlier this month, the NYPD revealed that Reynolds had been placed on “modified duty” in light of the ongoing case. It announced the officer’s resignation, effective immediately, a few days later.“He will receive no pension or health benefits, nor will he be allowed to carry a firearm,” the NYPD said in a statement after the resignation. “His actions are wholly inconsistent with the values and standards the New York City Police Department expects and demands of its officers.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

first_imgThe work of Pembroke’s Academic Director, Dr Mark Fricker, has been used in the making of the documentary film ‘Super Fungi: Can mushrooms help save the world?’Dr Fircker’s research informs us that, “The whole organism is one single giant cell, albeit containing many nuclei, that can grow to be many centimetres in size.” James Rhodes, a first year student at New College, was astounded by this, saying, “These moulds seem more developed than I am – I wish I could grow a couple more centimetres whenever I wanted.”Dr Fricker went on to say, “Although it has no brain or nervous system, its exploratory behaviour and the network itself is highly responsive and continuously adapts to whatever is happening around it.”This results in these moulds’ extraordinary ability to solve certain abstract problems, such as the shortest path through a maze, and raises their possible use in communication. One third year student took well to this, “I want to communicate via mushroom – no one uses the inter-college landlines anyway.”The film ‘Super Fungi’, partially based upon Fricker’s work, has already received much critical acclaim, winning two awards at the 2013 Pariscience International Film Festival. The documentary is about the possibilities that fungi open up for development, and to overcoming challenges which so far have not been solved by the synthetic creations of humans.In the film’s description, examples of a variety of different fungi and their uses are given, from Laccaria Bicolor – which allows trees to grow in deserts – to Fomitopsis officinalis, which can be a last chance drug for sufferers of incurable diseases. Indeed, they are promising so many applications that American mycologist Paul Stamets asserts, “Mushrooms will help save the world”.The short trailer to the documentary reveals little-known facts about fungi, explaining, “The fungi kingdom is one of the largest in nature … comprised of giants larger than a white whale, to Lilliputians the size of a speck of dust.”Arieh Frosh, a second year fine art student, was somewhat confused by this news, saying, “I can’t believe there are mushrooms bigger than white whales, I struggle to eat the little ones. Who’s hiding these massive mushrooms?”last_img read more

first_imgIf at first –or second or third – you don’t succeed, try again. For the Ocean City girls basketball team, the formula paid off on Monday afternoon with a South Jersey championship.The 2nd seeded Red Raiders (19-7) lost in three previous encounters to arch-rival Mainland Regional, all in overtime, including a stinging 41-39 defeat in the Cape Atlantic League championship game on February 24.It was a competitive game, that Ocean City led throughout.But all that was a distant memory on Monday afternoon with OC’s stunning 36-32 defeat of the previously undefeated and top-seeded Mustangs (28-1) in the South Jersey Group III championship game.Played before a packed house at the Mainland gym, the Raiders looked poised throughout and in control, taking a 23-16 lead at the half. Danielle Donoghue’s buzzer-beating shot went in to punctuate the run and send the Raiders off to the locker-room with confidence at the break.  They would score only 13 points the rest of the way, but a lockdown defense enabled Ocean City to close out the contest and advance in the New Jersey State Athletic Association tourney.Emma Finnegan (43) Danielle Donoghue (1) and Tori Rolls (10) join hands as time winds down at the conclusion of Ocean City’s victory in the South Jersey Championship game.With the win, the Raiders advanced to the South Jersey semi-final on Wednesday against the winner of Ewing and Allentown. The game will take place 7 p.m. at Deptford (Gloucester County) high school.For Mainland, the game was a bad case of déjà vu. The Raiders took the sectional final over the Mustangs last year by a 38-31 count.  Most observers considered the Mustangs to be the favorite this time, but the game illustrated how difficult it is to beat a closely-matched and familiar opponent four times in one season.The celebration is on after the Ocean City girls basketball team defeated Mainland last night in the South Jersey Group III title gameThe game began at a tense pace with Ocean City holding a 7-5 lead after the first quarter, but they outscored Mainland 16-11 in the second and 6-5 in the third. They withstood a Mainland rally in the final stanza to secure the victory and set off a wild celebration on the Ocean City bench and silencing the home crowd.No Ocean City scorer hit double figures, but sharing the ball and balanced scoring were key. Emme Finnegan paced OC with 9 points on three field goals and three made foul shots, followed by 7 each from Donoghue, Delaney Lappin and ToriRolls. Kylie Wyers chipped in with 4 Abbey Fenton completed the Ocean City scoring with 2Mainland star Kylee Watson led all scorers with 14 and Gabby Boggs had 9. But the remainder of the Mustangs’ roster could muster only a combined 9 points against the strong Ocean City defense.Anytime Ocean City and Mainland Regional hook up to do battle on the field or court, it’s going to be an intense battle. It’s been that way ever since Mainland opened in 1961 and the former Ocean City sending districts of Somers Point, Linwood and Northfield formed a new regional high school district and an instant rivalry was born. Located just across the bay from each other, OC and Mainland can count their season as a success regardless of record, if they defeat their traditional rival.Coach Baruffi with Mickey BakerMonday’s battle at Linwood was the latest chapter in a series that defines the essence of high school sports.When the bus carrying the athletes arrived back at OCHS, Danielle Donoghue emerged with the championship trophy and a big smile.Please see our facebook page for more pictures and to add your own…last_img read more
