The Christ Church rector, the Rev. Timothy Cole, later was found to have the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, prompting cancelation of worship services at the church. City health officials also advised anyone who had attended services or events at Christ Church on Feb. 24 or between Feb. 28 and March 3 to quarantine themselves for 14 days from the date of possible exposure.“None of them are showing any symptoms of the virus currently,” VTS said on a webpage for coronavirus updates. “However, we do invite all those who are at higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19 … to stay away from the campus at this time.”Virginia Theological Seminary’s Immanuel Chapel, dedicated and consecrated in 2015, stands beyond the ruins of the 1881 building that was destroyed in a fire in 2010. The ruins are now a memorial garden.

Seminary officials hope to resume worship there after next week’s spring break. Several other Episcopal seminaries also are heading into spring break and assessing how campus life will change when students return.Spring break begins March 12 and runs through March 22 at the University of the South and its School of Theology in Sewanee, Tennessee. Students leaving for spring break have been asked to log their travel on a registry, Laurie Saxton, a university spokeswoman, told ENS by email.The university’s online updates have included a notice that some athletic teams’ spring break trips to the Los Angeles, California, area have been canceled, and “outreach trips” are under review but hadn’t been canceled as of March 9.“There have not been any cases thus far on campus or in or near Sewanee, but because the situation is changing so rapidly, our response team is meeting daily and the website is updated as often as needed,” Saxton said.And while numerous dioceses around the country are asking worshipping communities to suspend use of the common cup for communion as a temporary precaution, Sewanee had not yet taken that step, though worshippers are being advised they may decline to receive the wine, Saxton said.A number of American colleges and universities, from Stanford University in Northern California to Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, have announced they are canceling in-person classes and will shift instruction online at a time when health risks are feared at large group gatherings. Episcopal seminaries are assessing and implementing online options as well.Church Divinity School of the Pacific, or CDSP, in Berkeley, California, moved its classes online starting March 10, an arrangement that will continue at least through March 27, according to an online alert. The alert noted that the seminary was following the lead of the nearby University of California campus. The CDSP campus isn’t closing, and meal service will continue.…and is intended to reduce the risk associated with the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Students, staff, and faculty should refer to the email from Dean Richardson for full details. (2/2)— Church Divinity School of the Pacific (@CDSPTweet) March 10, 2020Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas, is developing a contingency plan in case the campus needs to shut down due to spread of the coronavirus, Eric Scott, the seminary’s communications director, said in an emailed statement.“We have a plan in place to provide faculty members resources like Google Hangouts and Zoom meeting to allow for the hosting of classes online,” Scott said. “Much of the administrative infrastructure at the seminary is already hosted virtually, so most employees could work remotely if needed.”COVID-19, with symptoms similar to those of influenza, had been confirmed in 109 countries as of March 10, according to the World Health Organization, which on March 11 declared the virus outbreak a global pandemic. Although much remains unknown about the virus, early indications suggest that most cases – more than 80 percent, in one study – are mild and do not require hospitalization.This illustration, created at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, reveals ultrastructural morphology exhibited by coronaviruses. The spikes that adorn the outer surface of the virus impart the look of a corona surrounding the virion, when viewed electron microscopically.Even so, more than 110,000 cases and 4,000 deaths have been reported globally, most of them in China, though growing outbreaks in other countries have prompted escalating emergency measures to contain or slow its spread. Italy is on lockdown, with curfews, travel restrictions and other measures to minimize public interaction. German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned March 11 that up to 70 percent of Germans could contract the virus.In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 647 confirmed cases and at least 25 deaths as of March 10. At least two of those cases involve Episcopal rectors.In addition to Cole in Washington, D.C., the Diocese of Fort Worth announced on March 11 that the Rev. Robert Pace, rector at Trinity Episcopal Church in Fort Worth, Texas, has been hospitalized with the virus. Services at Trinity Episcopal Church have been canceled, and health officials are assessing the potential exposure to 45 people who attended a March 4 Lenten program at which Pace spoke. Cole and Pace both attended the mid-February conference of the Consortium of Endowed Episcopal Parishes, or CEEP, in Louisville, Kentucky, though no evidence has been released so far to suggest they contracted the virus at the conference.With no vaccine yet to check the spread of the disease, people infected or exposed to possible infection have been asked to self-quarantine until the risk of further transmission has passed, usually after two weeks.At VTS, students who need to self-quarantine are invited to do so in their residence halls or apartments, and seminary leaders are developing plans to accommodate any students who may contract the virus, possibly by setting aside a large, empty faculty home for them while they are recovering.As of today, at the recommendation of CDC and the Alexandria Health Department, VTS is moving all classes online — and chapel worship has been cancelled until after Spring Break.

A decision will be made after next week’s spring break on whether to continue that arrangement, communications director Curtis Prather told ENS.General Theological Seminary, or GTS, in New York is in the middle of its spring break and considering its next steps for when seminarians return. Gov. Andrew Cuomo on March 10 ordered a “containment area” north of the city in New Rochelle because of an outbreak there. On March 11, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases statewide rose to more than 190, including 46 in New York City, according to The New York Times.So far, GTS has followed the Diocese of New York’s lead in advising individuals to take practical steps to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, such as refraining from intinction, dipping the bread in the wine, at communion during worship services.“While there is palpable anxiety around New York City, given the recent outbreak in the boroughs, we are doing everything possible to communicate the importance of hygiene by signage and email,” Joshua Bruner, the seminary’s communications director, told ENS on March 10. “And we have added hand sanitizing stations throughout the close. Anyone who feels ill should stay home and seek medical attention.”As the outbreak intensifies, however, Bruner said he expects General Theological Seminary will announce additional response plans soon, possibly including online instruction.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Scott Higginbotham pleads innocence but red card wrecks Reds opener

first_imgFriday Feb 23, 2018 Scott Higginbotham pleads innocence but red card wrecks Reds opener The Queensland Reds had a nightmare start to their Super Rugby campaign as they lost a man after just ten minutes, leading to a heavy 45-19 loss at the hands of the Melbourne Rebels. Scott Higginbotham had a match to forget after he made this tackle early on.After consultation with the TMO, referee Brendon Pickerill summed things up and opted to send the Reds skipper off after his dangerous shoulder charge to the head of ball carrier Matt Phillip.31-year-old Higginbotham argued that Phillip had been falling into the tackle, but the amount of force used and the lack of arms in the challenge meant that Pickerill was left with the choice between a lenient yellow or a sterner red, as per World Rugby directives on contact with the head.“It was a violent incident, and they had a good look at it. You can’t go high,” said Fox Sports commentator Greg Martin at the break. “If he didn’t hit him in the head with a shoulder, he wouldn’t have got a red card.”Shortly after that, the Reds were down to 13 men after second rower Lukhan Tui (see below) picked up and dumped former Reds halfback Will Genia into the turf. That might have looked like a more clear cut red card, but Pickerall opted for a yellow card only on that occasion. With the Reds down on numbers for most of the match, they did well to lead at the break, but then Genia’s side took control and ended up scoring seven tries to three, for a comfortable opening round win.UPDATE: Higginbotham has been suspended for 3 weeks. Tui will face his hearing on Tuesday.The Lukhan Tui incident:credit: sanzaar/rugbypassADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Mulvaney: ‘The Bureau Is Not Designed to be Accountable’

She is a graduate of the University of Pune, India, where she received her B.A. in Commerce with a concentration in Accounting and Marketing and an M.A. in Mass Communication. Upon completion of her masters degree, Ojha worked at a national English daily publication in India (The Indian Express) where she was a staff writer in the cultural and arts features section. Ojha, also worked as Principal Correspondent at HT Media Ltd and at Honeywell as an executive in corporate communications. She and her husband currently reside in Houston, Texas.

This is the first of the two hearings where Mulvaney will testify, with the second hearing to be held before the Senate on Thursday.In his opening remarks, Mulvaney noted that, while the statute required him to be there, it didn’t say a word about answering questions or testifying. “I think that’s wrong and I’m using it as one of the examples of how this statute is written,” Mulvaney said. “The bureau is not designed to be accountable and my work there is aimed towards one end goal: to make the bureau more accountable.”Mulvaney said that he was there to answer questions from the committee and was of the opinion that both sides of the political spectrum would be served by fixing the statute on CFPB’s rules and bringing more transparency to the way the bureau worked.A former congressman himself, Mulvaney, who also serves as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, was asked questions ranging from the extent that the bureau protected consumers’ rights to a competitive and transparent market, to rumors about running for Speaker of the House next year.“My job is to make sure the bureau is acting consistently with our statutory responsibilities, to improve our daily operations and our interactions with consumers and industry, and to ensure we are accountable to the American people,” Mulvaney said.In his written testimony, Mulvaney laid out the new strategic priorities for the bureau, which included recognizing free markets and consumer choice and taking a prudent, consistent, and humble approach to enforcing the law. “This reflects my understanding that consumers and creditors alike gain from mutual exchange, provided that promises are kept, terms are clearly disclosed, and property rights are protected,” he said.On a question from the committee on the bureau’s budget, Mulvaney answered that, while the bureau had asked for $0 for the second quarter, they had requested the Federal Reserve for $98.5 million for the bureau’s expenses in the third quarter.Answering a question on the new approach that the bureau planned to take to fulfill its strategic priorities, Mulvaney said, “The bureau is going about its work in several new ways. First, to execute the new mission, the bureau will continue to seek the counsel of others and make decisions only after weighing relevant available evidence and a full range of perspectives.  Second, the bureau will protect the legal rights of all, equally. And third, we will do what is right with confidence, acting with humility and moderation.” This hearing was perhaps a precursor to the issues that are likely to come up during his testimony to the Senate, such as CFPB’s long-term structure and Mulvaney’s approach to enforcement actions in what is being deemed to be a face-off between him and Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Antetokounmpo scores 27 as Bucks beat Grizzlies

first_imgRead Next Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Khris Middleton and John Henson had 17 points apiece as Milwaukee won a season-high third straight. Henson made eight of 10 shots in his highest-scoring game this season.Tyreke Evans scored 14 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter for Memphis, and Dillon Brooks added 19 points.After the Bucks threatened to pull away late in the third, Evans scored nine consecutive points to pull Memphis into an 84-all tie early in the fourth quarter. Memphis pulled ahead on Dillon Brooks’ 3-pointer with about nine minutes left. Milwaukee tied it on Tony Snell’s corner 3. A soft drop-in by Antetokounmpo put the Bucks ahead 100-96 with just under five minutes remaining, a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.“Normally that game gets away from us,” Kidd said. “When we came back with the starters, we went on a run, but it started on the defensive end.”The Bucks got off to a strong start, shooting 65 percent from the field in the first quarter, including 6 for 6 on 3-pointers, to take a 34-29 lead.ADVERTISEMENT “It was confidence boost to see shots go down,” Middleton said.Memphis hit 10 of its first 11 shots in the second quarter to take a 10-point lead with 4:24 left in the half. Milwaukee made just one of six shots from long-range in the quarter, but pulled to 65-60 at the break, led by Antetokounmpo’s 12 points in the period.POSITIVE ATTITUDEFizdale said he is taking a positive approach with point guard Mike Conley, who has struggled with his shooting this season. He made 2 of 12 shots against the Bucks after entering the game shooting 40 percent from the field and 31 percent from 3-point range.“Be positive.

Aero India 2011: ‘Flying Bulls’ dazzle on Day 1

first_imgAs the nine Kiran aircraft of IAF’s Surya Kiran aerobatics team drew Tricolour streaks across the skies on the opening day of Aero India 2011 , a Czech team of veteran flyers became their admirers.”They are very good,” quipped Miroslav Krejci, 55.A member of the ‘Flying Bulls’ aerobatics team, Krejci was chilling out after an equally challenging feat. “The Bangalore airfield, some 1,000 metres above the sea level is challenging. You won’t get the same power as you would at the sea level – so you have to save energy. “The four ZLIN 50 LX aircraft of the ‘Flying Bulls’ had flown close by, looping like an inverted G and a ‘hammerhead’. The announcer turned poetic, talking about butterfly’s grace and a raging bull’s heart.How do you fly so close? “That is because none of us can see so far away,” team leader Radka Machova, 62, said, leaving Krejci chuckling behind his walrus moustache. All the team members are above 50.Why do you fly? “Why not?” Krejci quipped. His colleague, Jiri Veprek, 51, sees flying as a “big pleasure”. For Jiri Sallar, 58, who was born at an airport while his family was celebrating the Czech Aviation Day (September 17), flying comes naturally.Machova just loves flying.”When I married I had a flying licence, so my husband knows what I was up to. I worked on ground for a while and then took up aerobatics.” Her elder son is an air traffic controller and the younger runs an adventure sports shop.As a team, their work is coordinated.In its signature manoeuvre called mirror flying, Machova and Krejci fly their aircraft one over the other upturned like a mirror image and Saller goes around them in what are called barrel rolls.”You have to be a bit crazy to do this sort of thing,” Krejci said, as the team chilled out over coffee and sponge cakes, clad in beige flying suits and thick leather sandals.”We have flown in South and North America and over the Arctic and Antarctica,” Machova noted. “We just dismantle, pack up our small planes, ship them and fly them.” The Flying Bulls are parked at Hangar 7 in Innsbruck, Austria.A RICH HISTORYThe team got its present name in 2001, when it was welcomed as the newest member of the big Red Bull family.The foundation of the ‘Flying Bulls’ was laid in 1960, when on a small airfield in Chrudim 100km east of Prague, four friends, Tlusty, Struz, Bezak and Klimenda, formed the aerobatics group ‘Box Trener’. Soon, they were winning hearts at air shows, receiving invitations from countries beyond the Czech Republic.But leaders of the former Czechoslovakia made it increasingly difficult for them to go abroad for shows. The squadron was forced to stop their aerobatic flights in 1982.The team was revived in 1989 by Unimax and called the ‘Unimax Devils’. In 1990, the team got a new sponsor, NTC Chrudim AG, and flew under a new name, ‘Sky Box’, till the Red Bull family adopted it in 2001.advertisementlast_img read more

Teammate Ben Nercessian also values playing at State Cup and believes it will help his World Cup preparation. “Every tournament gives players a new experience that they can learn from, and playing here in the Mens 23’s I’m learning things that will help me at the Youth World Cup,” said Nercessian.

Blast off Bucks top Rockets

Ohio State unleashed a week’s worth of frustration on Toledo, with the Rockets playing the role of punching bag in the Buckeyes’38-0 victory Saturday at Cleveland Browns Stadium.A week after falling to No. 3 USC at home, 18-15, the Buckeyes shut down Toledo’s spread attack, which had averaged 42.5 points per game before facing OSU.“Our defense came out of the box,” Buckeye coach Jim Tressel said. “When you swarm on defense like we do, it gives your offense a few more opportunities, and we struck a couple plays that took command of the ballgame.”The Buckeyes got off to a quick start.On OSU’s third play from scrimmage, quarterback Terrelle Pryor launched a strike downfield to a wide-open Dane Sanzenbacher for a 76-yard score.“It felt like it was in the air forever,” Sanzenbacher said. “We got lucky that it opened up like that, easy pitch and catch.”Sanzenbacher found open seams throughout the day, totaling 126 yards on five catches, two resulting in touchdowns. The junior receiver enjoyed excelling against his hometown team.Pryor finished with a career-high 262 passing yards, in addition to 110 yards on the ground on 12 carries. He kept Toledo’s defense off-balance all afternoon with his dual-threat approach.“I love getting the ball to my receivers,” the sophomore quarterback said. “Believe me, if I can run, I’m going to take off and run and get the ten yards or whatever. That’s a choice of mine. I could take off and get ten yards every time, but I love getting the ball into my receivers hands, and maybe they can break it for 70, 80 yards.”The Rockets, meanwhile, struggled to sustain drives against a flocking OSU defense.“We got down 21-0 early and had to throw the football a little more than we would have liked,” Toledo coach Tim Beckman said. “I thought at times we were able to run the ball, but we got into so many situations that we couldn’t continually run the football.”Toledo quarterback Aaron Opelt, who racked up 742 passing yards and seven touchdowns in his first two games of the season, managed just 197 without a score in the loss. The Buckeyes held the Rockets to just 210 total yards, a far cry from Toledo’s previous average of 559 yards per game.The Buckeyes’ second series lasted 12 plays and covered 68 yards. Pryor found Sanzenbacher for another touchdown, this time slinging an 18-yard pass into tight coverage for the score. Sanzenbacher made a one-handed stretch to snag the throw.“That ball was thrown in a hurry and right at the break,” Tressel said. “Dane’s got good hands. He’s a steady guy. Nothing bothers him inside, even when there’s a lot of bodies flying around.”Each of Toledo’s first ten drives ended with a punt. The Rockets fumbled away their only glance at the end zone late in the third quarter.On its only drive lasting more than seven plays, Toledo moved the ball deep inside Buckeye territory. Opelt connected with receiver Eric Page in stride near the end zone, but he lost control of the ball when unsuccessfully spinning away from a Kurt Coleman tackle.Linebacker Ross Homan recovered the fumble for the Buckeyes, who regained possession and maintained the shutout.The victory cleanses some of the rotten taste left in the players’ mouths after losing to Southern Cal. Following a week of criticism and scrutiny, the team is ready to move forward onto Big Ten play.“Criticism doesn’t bother us,” Pryor said. “I know what I’m capable of. I know what the offensive line is capable of. We all know what each other is capable of. It comes with the territory, you just have to do your job.”The dominating performance against Toledo helped prepare Ohio State for the rigor of conference play, Sanzenbacher said.“We have to be a lot more focused,” he said. “We know that every team has us marked down on their calendars and is going to play us tough.” read more

Commentary Reds Indians managers produce same results with different styles

Courtesy of MCTBoth the Cleveland and Cincinnati baseball organizations have managers that are familiar with winning. Although the two men have different managing techniques, they both seem to know which buttons to push. Cleveland’s Terry Francona’s loose way of orchestrating seems to fit his team’s persona. On the other hand, Cincinnati’s Dusty Baker’s calm approach to guiding a team appears to work, but has not gotten his team over the hump to win a championship.It is not farfetched to believe the Indians can win a championship with Francona at the helm. The former Boston manager won two titles with the Red Sox, one where his team defeated the Tribe in the American League Championship Series before winning it all in 2007.With a little over half of his first season as the Tribe’s manager under his belt, Francona has seen a fair amount of success with his new team. The Indians are second in the division, trailing the Tigers by 2.5 games. In recent years, the Indians have been in this identical position leading up to the All-Star break, but then find themselves in the back of the pack by season’s end. With the way the season has gone so far, it’s looking more and more like Francona has a formula that will keep his team in the playoff race into September.Cleveland’s skipper has a bit of a loose approach when it comes to managing. He likes his players to have fun on the field, and his loose personality appears to be working well with the team’s character. An example of Francona’s easy going style came before the start of the season when the team took part in the nationwide craze of making a “Harlem Shake” dance video.Although Cleveland has gone through a few managers over the past ten seasons the Reds have not, as Baker is in his six straight year with the organization.Although some may want Baker out of Cincinnati, no one can complain about him leading his ball club to two division titles in the last three years. The Reds won their division both in 2010 and again in 2012. Before the 2010 season, the only time Cincinnati had won the central division was in 1995. That year also marks the last year the Reds made the playoffs prior to the Baker era. He has turned the franchise into a consistent playoff contender.As great as it is that Baker has won division titles in Cincinnati, the higher goal is to get deep into the playoffs and win a World Series. The last two playoff appearances for the Reds have been the opposite of that. In 2010, Cincinnati was swept in three games in the divisional series against Philadelphia. The 2012 squad had a 2-0 lead on San Francisco before losing the next three games at home in the divisional series. Baker has been an outstanding manager in regards to getting his teams to the playoffs, but the playoff appearances are short-lived.Baker’s managing style is mainly laid back and relaxed, though there are times where he gets intense and wears his emotions on his sleeve. How the squad is this season, he may have to be more forward than usual in order to get his team on a roll. This 2013 team appears to be the type needing a constant push, seeming to have no sense of urgency. During one of the club’s more recent hitting slumps, second baseman Brandon Phillips said they would eventually get out of it. Baker needs to be more assertive and tell his players that eventually is not good enough.Both managers have the makeup of bringing championships to their respective cities. With this being Francona’s first year in Cleveland, he has a couple seasons to prove himself. Baker does not have that luxury with this being his sixth year in Cincinnati.The rest of the season is important to both franchises and managers as each are making a playoff push. read more

Hughton admits Brightons signings havent played well yet

first_imgFor the Brighton and Hove Albion manager, only one of the ten players the team bought during the summer transfer window has worked well: Alireza JahanbakhshDuring the summer transfer window, Brighton and Hove Albion spend almost £60m on 10 new players.And manager Chris Hughton admits the new signings have yet to make an impact in the English Premier League.“I think it would be fair to say they haven’t hit the levels required yet,” said Hughton to Sky Sports.Daniel Fark, Norwich City, Premier LeagueDaniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“They all have different circumstances. One is about the form of the players. In Florin Andone’s situation, he came with an injury and had a couple of little problems that stopped his progress being as quick as he would have liked.”“Bernardo is a real talent at left-back and I think has got a bright future for us – but my choices have been a bit different and that can happen,” he added.“Of course if the team is doing well enough – and we have stated okay – you don’t make those changes. But I fully expect the new players we brought in to play a big part this season.”“I think that’s normal,” he said. “The progress of new players can be down to so many things; a settling in period, how well the team is going, what position they play etc.”last_img read more
