Injury blow for Ospreys’ Gareth Owen

first_imgHead Physio Chris Towers explained: “Gareth underwent surgery on Thursday after he suffered a knee injury in training, It was a bit of a freak accident resulting in him twisting his knee, sustaining a substantial injury. As a result of this he will, in all likelihood, be out of action for the whole of the 2011-12 season.“Thursday’s operation was the first part of what will be a two stage surgical procedure to repair the damage and then reconstruct the cruciate ligament.” TAGS: Ospreys Out of the running: Gareth Owen could miss all of next season after suffering a knee injuryGARETH OWEN could miss the entire 2011-12 campaign after suffering “a substantial injury” in training.The 22-year old, who can play at full-back, fly-half and centre, already has 50 appearances for the Ospreys under his belt, but he underwent surgery this week and faces another operation at a later date.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Louis Rees-Zammit produces sensational finish against Ireland

first_imgThe moment that 14 man Ireland took the lead against Wales with the first try of the game! #GuinnessSixNations #WALvIRE pic.twitter.com/JaY6GZqoXm— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 7, 2021Wales had the better of the third quarter, though. First George North crossed for his 21st Six Nations try, moving him just one behind Shane Williams’s Wales’ record in the championship.Ireland ran the ball out of their own 22 but then lost possession and Nick Tompkins snaffled up the loose ball. North initiated one carry, the ball was then recycled and Josh Navidi produced a brilliant back-handed offload to release North again.The centre threw a dummy before cutting between James Lowe and Iain Henderson, then had the power to get over the line despite being tackled by Beirne. The winger’s try helps Wales to Six Nations win after early Peter O’Mahony red card Have we mentioned this guy is 20? A 𝗴𝗹𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗼𝘂𝘀 finish in the corner from @LouisReesZammit #GuinnessSixNations #WALvIRE pic.twitter.com/zoMwXdTBnQ— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 7, 2021A Leigh Halfpenny penalty in the 64th minute gave Wales a 21-13 lead – but Ireland were not done, despite playing for so long a man down.They built again and a Billy Burns penalty going into the last ten minutes narrowed the gap to just five points and then Wales’ ill-discipline once the clock had ticked beyond 80 gave them the opportunity to snatch victory.First, Tompkins was penalised for a deliberate knock-on and then North was pinged at a breakdown but, crucially, Burns kicked the ball dead as he tried to secure a five-metre lineout.It was such an odd ending to the match that neither team seemed to know what to do, with little to no celebrations from the team in red.Ireland captain Johnny Sexton said of Burns’s kick: “As a ten you’ve got to go for it. Sometimes you go for it and you’re the hero and he did have to go for it because there’s a big difference from ten metres out and five metres out.”Too long: Robbie Henshaw consoles Billy Burns at the final whistle (Getty Images)The result will help relieve the pressure on Wales coach Wayne Pivac, although he may be without several players who started here for the visit to Scotland next weekend.As well as Lydiate, Tomos Williams limped off at half-time and George North looked to be struggling too.That’s before you look at the number of head injuries. Both Johnny Williams and Hallam Amos went off for HIAs, and stayed off, for Wales while Ireland’s James Ryan, Robbie Henshaw and Sexton all looked to have suffered head injuries, with only Henshaw returning to the fray after an HIA.Both teams will have plenty on their to-do list ahead of next weekend’s fixtures – Wales’ lineout is still malfunctioning – but there were also a few standout performances. Wales skipper Alun Wyn Jones was superb in his first match for two months, bringing physicality and nous with and without the ball, while Beirne and Hugo Keenan impressed for Ireland.Given they had to play for more than an hour with 14 men, leaving Cardiff with a bonus point could be crucial for Ireland as the championship progresses, albeit that they will be disappointed not to capitalise on their match-winning opportunity with the clock in the red.While Wales fans will be hoping to see more of those finishes from Rees-Zammit. Louis Rees-Zammit produces sensational finish against IrelandLouis Rees-Zammit’s superb finish lit up an attritional Six Nations match in Cardiff.The winger’s try helped Wales to a 21-16 triumph over Ireland as they returned to the Principality Stadium for the first time in nearly a year – and it was a dramatic contest despite the lack of fans.There was a red card, a concerning number of head injuries, an international return cut short, a try-scoring corner dive and an extremely strange ending to a closely-fought Test match.Let’s start at the beginning. The first quarter saw Wales flanker Dan Lydiate, who was playing his first Test since 2018, forced off with a knee injury after just 12 minutes and Peter O’Mahony was sent off a couple of minutes later.Yet by half-time it was 14-man Ireland who were leading 13-6 having reacted well to the red card to dominate possession and territory. Tadhg Beirne scored just before the break and Johnny Sexton provided eight points with his boot. The try that took George North one step closer to equalling Shane Williams’ #GuinnessSixNations tally, one more and he’ll be joint third on the all-time list! #GuinnessSixNations #WALvIRE pic.twitter.com/qoz1XKMI5k— Guinness Six Nations (@SixNationsRugby) February 7, 2021Then North turned creator. After a series of Wales penalties in Ireland’s 22 around the hour mark, Rees-Zammit was put over in the corner after some slick passing from North and Leigh Halfpenny.The 20-year-old winger scored his first try for Wales against Georgia in November but this was his first in the Six Nations – and judging by this finish there will be many more.He launched himself into the air and touched the ball down one-handed without going into touch and while being tackled by Tadhg Furlong.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Finishing touch: Louis Rees-Zammit scores in the corner (Getty Images) Can’t get to the shops?

Presiding Bishop’s statement on refugees; congregational and individual response suggestions

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York September 15, 2015 at 8:01 am I am sorry to say but I disagree with our Presiding bishop and the Episcopal church. This country cannot even take care of our children, the elderly, the disabled, the homeless population and our veterans. And also heath insurance is still for the privilege. So I ask you Katherine why should we welcome these people when we cannot even help those Americans who desperately need our help. Joan E. Harrison says: September 14, 2015 at 8:40 pm Thank you for giving us your view on this situation, Bishop Katharine. I think the idea of other countries assimilating such large numbers of people is daunting for many. I was born and raised in Canada, and was 14 when WW2 ended. We had a large influx of immigrants come to Toronto, where I lived, mostly from Eastern Europe. I’d like people to know that these locations of masses of people can work! I went through high school with Kids from Eastern Europe and was enriched by knowing them. I saw the lifestyles of their families (hard, hard, working people) and can say that Canada was enriched by these new citizens. And by the pieces of their culture that came with them and melded into our culture. Thank you so much for your wonderful contribution to the Episcopal church. You gave so much, and are loved so much.

Leaders of the Episcopal Church are abusing their authority by making recommendations which will come back to haunt us. Among the thousands of self-proclaimed Muslim asylum seekers there must be many looking forward to committing acts of terrorism against those who are helping them. Is it absolutely impossible for us to learn from history? Should we have to look forward to brutal attacks against Christians in our own country after thousands of Christians have been slaughtered in the Middle East?

Thank you, +Bishop Katherine for giving me an answer and a way that I can help. September 14, 2015 at 7:39 pm God bless you, ++ Katharine. I am PROUD to be an Episcopalian. September 15, 2015 at 8:28 pm I strongly disagree with the Presiding Bishop’s viewpoint on taking in these people. We are already severely over burdened with illegals we can’t afford. More importantly, 70 percent of these “Syrian refugees” are young men ( UN statistics) and thus prime candidates to become Muslim terrorists. If you feel a need to do something for them, go over there yourself and tend to them.In regards to Joan Harrison’s letter of the 15th She is right that Canada was enriched by those immigrants just as the U.S. was.,but those were legal immigrants willing to assimilate themselves into a new culture and earn their citizenship.

Of the record total of 432,761 refugees and migrants making the perilous journey across the Mediterranean to Europe so far this year, an estimated 309,000 people had arrived by sea in Greece, the International Organization for Migration (IMO) said on Friday. About half of those crossing the Mediterranean are Syrians fleeing civil war, according to the United Nations refugee agency. REUTERS/Michalis Karagiannis[Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs press release] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has issued this statement on the current worldwide refugee crisis:The children of Abraham have ever been reminded to care for the widow and orphan and the sojourner in their midst, who were the refugees and homeless of the time. Jesus charged his followers to care for the least of these and proclaim the near presence of the Reign of God – in other words, feed the hungry, water the thirsty, house the homeless, heal the sick, and liberate the captives. We cannot ignore the massive human suffering in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, nor in Asia and the Americas. We are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers, and our lives are bound up with theirs. The churchwide ministry of Episcopalians has included refugee resettlement since the refugee crisis of World War II.  It continues today through the leadership of Episcopal Migration Ministries, and I urge your involvement, action, and support.

Amazon Continues Investment in Tennessee with Alcoa Fulfillment Center

first_img Pinterest Local NewsBusiness By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Amazon Continues Investment in Tennessee with Alcoa Fulfillment Center TAGS  WhatsApp Facebook Twittercenter_img Facebook WhatsApp Twitter SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) today announced plans to open a fulfillment center in Alcoa, Tennessee. The site, which is anticipated to launch in 2022, will create nearly 800 new, full-time jobs with benefits and opportunities to engage with advanced robotics. The company currently has fulfillment and sortation centers in Charleston, Chattanooga, Lebanon, Murfreesboro, Memphis and Nashville. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210203005744/en/ “We are excited to continue creating a positive economic impact in the region with job opportunities and industry-leading benefits that start on the first day of the job,” said Holly Sullivan, Amazon’s head of worldwide economic development. “Tennessee is a great state for business and we are excited to have the opportunity to partner, grow and better serve our customers throughout this region.” “Over the past year, Amazon has announced projects in each of Tennessee’s grand divisions, accounting for nearly 3,000 new jobs. As we continue to navigate through the pandemic and reboot our economy, we know our recovery is supported by the success of our Tennessee businesses. We are grateful that Amazon continues to provide jobs to thousands of Tennesseans, and we congratulate the company on its newest fulfillment center in Alcoa,” said Tennessee Governor Bill Lee. The Alcoa facility will be Amazon’s third fulfillment center in Tennessee to use innovative robotics technology and the company’s eighth fulfillment center in the Volunteer State. Amazon employees at the more than 634,812 square-foot fulfillment center will pick, pack and ship smaller customer items, such as books, electronics and consumer goods. “It is a testament to the strength of Tennessee’s business climate that companies are attracted to our state and choose to operate and expand here. Amazon is a global brand that has invested $1.5 billion and created more than 25,000 jobs across all three grand divisions of our state, and we appreciate their team for choosing to grow in East Tennessee,” said Bob Rolfe, commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. “We would also like to thank Tennessee Department of Transportation Commissioner Clay Bright and his outstanding leadership team for their many contributions to help bring this project to fruition.” On top of the company’s industry-leading starting wage from $15, the company offers full-time employees comprehensive benefits including full medical, vision, and dental insurance as well as a 401(k) with 50 percent match starting on day one. The company also offers up to 20 weeks of maternal and parental paid leave and innovative benefits such as Leave Share and Ramp Back, which give new parents flexibility with their growing families. In addition, Amazon has pledged to invest over $700 million to provide upskilling training for 100,000 U.S. employees for in demand jobs. Programs will help Amazonians from all backgrounds access training to move into highly skilled roles across the company’s corporate offices, tech hubs, fulfillment centers, retails stores, and transportation network, or pursue career paths outside of Amazon. “Blount County, along with the cities of Alcoa and Maryville, are delighted Amazon made its decision to locate here. The jobs and worldwide recognition it brings are extremely beneficial to this area,” said Blount County Mayor Ed Mitchell. “We thank Amazon, Governor Bill Lee, Tennessee ECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe, Tennessee Department of Transportation, and our county and city commissioners for tirelessly working together to bring this project to fruition. I, along with the citizens of Blount County, wish them great success and look forward to working with them for many years to come.” All associates will go through hours of safety training and have access to continuing education opportunities through Amazon’s upskilling programs such as Career Choice. In this program, the company will pre-pay up to 95 percent of tuition for courses related to in-demand fields, regardless of whether the skills are relevant to a career at Amazon. Since the program’s launch, more than 25,000 employees have pursued degrees in game design and visual communications, nursing, IT programming and radiology, to name a few. “Having Amazon locate in a community has proven to be beneficial for everyone involved, and on behalf of the Blount County Industrial Development Board, I’m happy to welcome its leadership to Blount County and East Tennessee,” said Blount County Industrial Development Board Chair Matt Murray. “The regional economic impact of an operation like this will be felt almost immediately. We are excited to get this project progressing quickly and look forward to watching it grow.” Amazon’s fulfillment network supports millions of businesses of all sizes worldwide through its Fulfillment by Amazon offering, and many of those local organizations are based in Tennessee. There are more than 30,000 authors, small and medium-sized businesses, and developers in Tennessee growing their companies and reaching new customers on Amazon products and services. The project is being developed by Hillwood Development Company, Inc. To learn more about working at an Amazon fulfillment center, visit www.amazondelivers.jobs. About Amazon: Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking.

Laurie Hernandez talks new children’s book, announces she’s training for 2020 Olympics

first_img Written by October 11, 2018 /Sports News – National Laurie Hernandez talks new children’s book, announces she’s training for 2020 Olympics FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC News(NEW YORK) — Two-time Olympic medalist Laurie Hernandez is returning to gymnastics.The 18-year-old made the announcement on “Good Morning America” Thursday, saying she is “currently training.”“Crossing your fingers for 2020,” Hernandez said of the future Olympics, which will be held in Tokyo.Besides winning a gold and silver medal, Hernandez has a new children’s book out titled, “She’s Got This.” The name of the book is inspired by the gymnast visibly reciting “I got this” to herself before each event at the U.S. women’s gymnastics team at the 2016 Summer Olympics.“Whenever I’m competing, I’m pretty much terrified before I go up there,” Hernandez said. “And so, it’s making sure that I can calm myself down before I hop onto the equipment. And for me, that’s a lot of self-talk and self-preparation and it’s being my own hype man.”“She’s Got This” is about a gymnast who experiences setbacks, but keeps going.This is the second published book for Hernandez, who also won Season 23 of “Dancing With the Stars.”But that’s not all: Hernandez also has her own Barbie doll.“She has my curls, which is really important to me,” Hernandez said. “When I was little, I always wanted to straighten my hair because I saw everybody had that but now I get to embrace that.”On “GMA,” Hernandez also showed adorable young fans in the audience how to appropriately stick a landing.“She’s Got This” is available now.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
