Archbishop of Canterbury praises for ‘bridge-building’ archbishop of Jerusalem

He repeatedly recited a phrase that he had heard during his visit: “If you come to the Holy Land for two weeks, you think you understand the situation. If you come for two years, you understand that you know nothing about the situation.”I’m glad the Archbishop visited Hebron and the tomb of Abraham. I wonder, however, how he felt walking under the protective chicken wire or making his way through the turnstile. I wonder, too, whether he walked the block to Shuhada Street and its Jersey wall.There is a time for bridge-building. There is, more urgently, a time for tearing down the walls. And there is a time for speaking truth and condemning injustice. The Church should be involved in all three tasks. What is “daft” is its not doing so. What is “daft” is being careful about what we say in the face of injustice.

Will April corporate loan showers bring July flowers?

first_imgThe stimulus package is here! Well, almost here—the House of Representatives still has to pass it. In concert with the package, the Fed this week embarked on unlimited Quantitative Easing, taking their balance sheet to $5 trillion for the first time with massive purchases of Treasury notes and Agency MBS. The Fed has bought $50 billion Agency MBS per day since Monday. At times this represents ten times the real daily production of new Agency MBS! They will also soon expand their asset class purchasing powers to buy high-grade corporate bonds (and ETFs) as well as municipal bonds. They have indeed done what we wrote two weeks ago, they have “Flipped the Script.” Additionally, the Fed has restarted some 2008 favorite facilities like Term Asset Backed Securities Lending Facility (“TALF”), as well as money market fund and commercial paper back-stops.We wanted to focus on perhaps the most controversial component of the stimulus package, the $454 billion large corporation lending program, where the Treasury Department becomes a hedge fund and the Federal Reserve becomes their prime broker.The program that the Fed and Treasury look to embark upon seems to draw inspiration from the Citibank and Bank of America 2008-2009 bailouts. With those deals, the Treasury Department took a combined $424 billion “toxic assets” off the bank’s books, by putting the banks in first loss positions on $10 billion, and then a 90%/10% (Treasury/Bank) loss sharing scheme for the rest. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Pogba starts amid talk of potential United exit

first_imgIt could actually be bad news for Pogba that he featured against Bournemouth as Mourinho hinted he had opted to rest some of the players he feels are essential to beat Tottenham at Wembley.“Is the team selection looking back at the weekend or ahead to the semi-final? A bit of both,” Mourinho told BT Sport.Final preparations at the Vitality Stadium for #MUFC!For a reminder of tonight’s team news, click here ? https://t.co/RtxY6IC303 pic.twitter.com/MtcKjG34UU— Manchester United (@ManUtd) April 18, 2018“I would say for example that Matic is looking for Saturday. But not every player that is out of the team is for the same reason.“The message is the same. People in the stadium or at home can be confused with my message. We have a fresh team. The majority of players didn’t play the last match.“It is a team where only Chris Smalling played for 90 minutes at the weekend. I don’t even speak about the semi-final.“We need four points to confirm a top-four position and that is target number one.”Share on: WhatsApp Bournemouth, United Kingdom | AFP | Paul Pogba was named in the Manchester United team for Wednesday’s clash with Bournemouth amid mounting speculation that the France midfielder is set to leave Old Trafford.United manager Jose Mourinho had vowed to drop several of his under-performing stars in the aftermath of Sunday’s shock 1-0 defeat against struggling West Bromwich Albion.United’s team-sheet at Dean Court was eagerly awaited as Mourinho — who accused them of complacency against Albion — made seven changes, yet kept Pogba in the starting line-up.Seven changes to your #MUFC starting XI… #BOUMUN pic.twitter.com/iKbO0SyRaa— Manchester United (@ManUtd) April 18, 2018Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic, Ashley Young, Victor Lindelof, Antonio Valencia and Juan Mata were all left out ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Tottenham.It was Pogba’s fate that attracted the most interest.Pogba was widely criticised for his lacklustre display against Albion — the latest in a long line of disappointing efforts from the former Juventus star since his move to United two seasons ago.That sparked talk that Mourinho has told United to put Pogba up for sale, just days after Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said he had been offered the chance to sign the midfielder by his agent in January.last_img read more

Six Young Artists Speak Up About Kinship Care

first_imgFacebook12Tweet0Pin1Submitted by Family Education and Support ServicesFamilies from across Washington will gather on Tuesday, May 23, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. in the Governor’s Mansion located near our State Capitol Building to honor six children who submitted winning essays for the 14th annual Kinship Voices of Children contest. Each of these young children and youth, ages 5 to 19-years-old, created inspirational pieces of written and/or visual art about their experiences being raised by a relative caregiver. Each child submitting a winning entry will be awarded with a signed certificate, a $100 check donated by Twin Star Credit Union, and an overnight stay at the Great Wolf Lodge for their family.Most children find safety and comfort in the arms and care of their family, including grandparents and other relatives. For more than 2 million children in the USA, living with a grandparent, aunt, uncle, or other family member has become a permanent or long-term arrangement. When parents are unable or unwilling to care for their children, placing them with a relative caregiver can have some advantages. Kinship care reduces the trauma children experience when placed with strangers. It enhances children’s sense of identity and self-esteem, continues connections children have to their siblings and other relatives, and strengthens the family’s ability to give children the support they need. Kinship care often comes as a surprise to both the child and the relative caregiver.What does it mean to a child who can’t live with their parents to know he or she is safe, loved, and has a place to belong? Some answers to this question are offered in the winning entries submitted to the Kinship Voices of Children Contest. The contest was originally initiated by the Statewide Kinship Oversight Coalition, and is coordinated by Family Education and Support Services in collaboration with Aging and Long Term Support Administration/DSHS, Lewis-Mason-Thurston Area Agency on Aging, and Kinship Navigators and advocates across Washington State. The event is sponsored by TwinStar Credit Union in collaboration with the Great Wolf Lodge.Judges included Bill Moss, David Stillman, Terry Jefferies, Amanda Stevens, Carrie Petit, Lori Mahar, Mike Fenton, Jennifer Strus, Teri Agulara Flemming, Shelley Arneson, Karen Fraser, Bonnie Jacques, Melisssa Goldman, Olvia Schu, and Trista Mason.6-year-old Joseph said this about his winning entry (pictured) – “Family is like gears- they all connect together.” Photo courtesy: Family Education and Support ServicesThis year, 52 entries were received. Some are funny, some serious or even sad, but all are sincere and offer testimony to the value, sense of family, and love each young artist experienced in living with a relative caregiver. The winning entries are:Joseph, age 6 – Olympia, WACasey, age 7 – Roy, WATaryn, age 8 – Forks, WAThomas, age 10 – Port Townsend, WASummer, age 13 – Naches, WABrittany, age 15 – Cashmere, WAIn addition to the children being honored, we will also acknowledge Ms. Judy Lin. Our 2017 booklet compiling all entries into the Voices of Children contest has been dedicated to Judy in honor of her substantial contributions to Kinship Caregivers across our State.For more information about this contest or to learn about Kinship Care Resources contact Lynn Urvina at 1-877-813-2828 or e-mail [email protected]last_img read more

High School Sports Is His Business

first_img“It never gets old, it’s great,” said Chrampanis, whose passion comes through in the video narration. “I get as much satisfaction watching some of these best kids in the country as watching a local team win its first game in two seasons.”He enjoys documenting the early starts of the up-and-coming players, raising their profiles and introducing them to working with the media. He was among the first to hand a microphone to Ranney School basketball superstars Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine, and has enjoyed watching them grow in the past three years. “These kids from Ranney are going to be household names across the world in about four years,” he said. He was also there to watch Frankie Tagliaferri of Colts Neck grow in her soccer career. He expects she could make the World Cup team.As for what comes next, Chrampanis is close-lipped but hints there are initiatives in the works.“We want to perfect the Jersey Sports Zone model and see what happens,” said Chrampanis. He said the site would always remain fee-free and advertiser supported.He said he won’t forget the athletes, fans and sponsors who gave his fledgling idea its boost in the beginning, citing support from The Two River Times’ publisher Domenic DiPiero, and the Red Bank Catholic and Rumson-Fair Haven communities.“I’ll be forever indebted to the kids in this area for supporting us before we were a household name,” said Chrampanis. “The kids at RBC and RBR, I certainly am not going to turn my back on them. We’ll be at their games,” he said.This article was first published in the Sept. 21-28, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times. By Christina Johnson |LITTLE SILVER – For three years, broadcaster Rich Chrampanis and a small team of multimedia journalists have been documenting high school sports in Monmouth and Ocean counties for his online startup, Shore Sports Zone.Now his unique brand of professionally produced scholastic sports coverage is going statewide, thanks to an investment from a new partner. Jersey Sports Zone announced on Sept. 1 it will now cover the high school sports scene everywhere in New Jersey, including the often overlooked southern and western sections of the Garden State.“We’re going to be the most dominant digital media in the state, when it comes to high school sports,” said Chrampanis, 47, of Little Silver. “On Sunday, we had 110,000 organic Twitter impressions in one day. That’s a lot of people looking at your website – and we’re only 17 days old.”Covering all of New Jersey is an ambitious goal for Chrampanis and his roving team of three fulltime multimedia reporters and a roster of freelancers who brave the heat, rain and snow hoping to capture great moments in sports. There are more than 500 school districts, and a multitude of different varsity sports, and nearly all of those sports have a girls’ and a boys’ team. But for starters, Jersey Sports Zone will be focusing on where the most interest is, and that means football, soccer, hockey, basketball, wrestling, baseball, softball and lacrosse. Other sports, like field hockey, swimming, golf and others will also be covered, he said, as well as coaches and college recruiting news.The new principal owner of Jersey Sports Zone is Dale J. Florio, an attorney and well-known Trenton lobbyist, who serves as an assistant basketball coach at the Hun School in Princeton. Chrampanis is the company’s chief operating officer. He is also the sports editor at The Two River Times, where he oversees the newspaper’s high school sports coverage for the Monmouth County weekly.Jersey Sports Zone’s immediate goal is to tell the story of what happened at the game last night, narrated with video highlights of the most talked-about plays, crowd reaction and post-game interviews. The stories are produced directly after the game, in sessions that can last until the early hours of the morning so the recaps can be posted by 6 a.m. on YouTube.There also are the feature stories, where reporters capture the players off the field to learn more about their motivations, hopes and dreams. The company slogan is “Go Beyond the Score.”For Chrampanis, his job is a dream come true, and the natural result of his career path. He grew up in Middletown, attended Christian Brothers Academy, and graduated from St. Bonaventure University in Allegany, New York. For the past 20 years he has been a TV sports director and on-air sports anchor for network affiliates in places like Iowa, Maine and South Carolina. Unlike here, high school sports were covered in those TV markets. Chrampanis produced a popular Friday night high school football show in Myrtle Beach that rounded up results from 15-20 games and actually pre-empted “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”“They take it very seriously. It’s a very big part of their communities,” he said. Nothing like that exists on air in New Jersey, due to the traditional dominance by and priorities of the New York and Philadelphia markets, he explained.As digital media grew, Chrampanis took stock of his role in TV broadcasting and realized things were changing fast. He and his wife, Dianne, and kids, Luke and Carly, decided to take a risk to move back to Monmouth County and build their own high school sports news digital media company. His local competition was Shore Sports Network, which has since been purchased by Townsquare Media, and the Asbury Park Press.“We found an audience immediately,” said Chrampanis. In the first year, Chrampanis, his wife and a few helpers hustled to cover six to eight games on a Friday night, and four to six games on a Saturday. The athletes shared the videos on social media; parents were excited to see the shows and word of mouth grew. By its third year, Shore Sports Zone has earned 3.5 million views on the website, and 2.5 million on YouTube. Local and corporate sponsorship supports the site.last_img read more

Leaf win fourth straight by doubling Rockies 6-3

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsThe Nelson Leafs returned to their old slow-starting ways.Only this time it didn’t cost them any points in the standings.Nine different players hit the score sheet as Nelson doubled the Columbia Valley Rockies 6-3 in Kootenay International Junior Hockey League action Sunday afternoon at the NDCC Arena.The win, coupled with a 5-1 shellacking of the Kamloops Storm Saturday, is the fourth straight for the Green and White and moves the Leafs into a third-place tie with the Spokane Braves. Nelson has won six of seven games.“This feels good . . . we’re pretty confident now so we feel pretty good,” said Leaf forward Colton Schell.Schell, teaming up with newcomer Brennan Foreman, scored the Leafs final goal during a three-goal third period that iced the contest for Nelson. But it was the slow start that had the players talking.“We came out flat at the start thinking that this was going to be an easy game,” explained Schell as the Leafs met last place Rockies with only five wins on the season. “For some reason our first periods have been bad all year. Maybe it’s a lack of preparation but we need to focus better.”Patrick Martens, on the power play, and Stephen Hynes of the Rockies scored in the first period. Nelson took control of the game in the second, outscoring the Rockies 2-1 in the second on goals by Gavin Currie and Evan J Moir, scoring his first of the season.Foreman, Currie and Schell completed the scoring for Columbia Valley in the third.Marcus Beesley stopped 20 of 23 shots, including a few of the spectacular variety in the third, to register the win. Nelson out shot Columbia Valley 34-23.Saturday the Leafs knocked off one of the hottest teams in the KIJHL in the Kamloops Storm. “We came out knowing (Kamloops) is one of the top teams in the league and if we want to be one of those teams we had to beat them and we did,” said Schell of the four-goal win over the Storm.Connor McLaughlin, who has been scoring goals wherever he’s playing, netted a pair to lead the Leafs. McLaughlin, given the night off by coach Chris Shaw, helped the Trail Smoke Eaters to victory during a road trip to northern B.C. by scoring twice against Prince George. McLaughlin scored twice in the opening frame, one coming on the power play.
Martens gave Nelson a 3-0 lead before Mike McCance solved Nelson starter Darren Hogg.In the third Connor Enright and Dallon Stoddart scored to put the game away. Tanner Burns and Currie, who now leads Nelson in scoring with 33 points, added a pair of assists.LEAF BANTER: Leaf coach Chris Shaw was without assistants Jason Rushton and Sean Dooley, both in Vernon attending a coaching clinic. . . .Nelson continues to beat up on teams outside the Murdoch Division, improving to 8-2 on the season. However, it’s inside the division that the Leafs are experiencing growing pains as the Green and White are a collective 6-9 against Murdoch opponents, with four of the wins coming against Grand Forks. Nelson has yet to defeat Murdoch front running Castlegar or Beaver Valley this season. . . .Newcomers Brennan Foreman and Joel Stewart have four and two points, respectively, since joining the team Thursday in Grand Forks. . . .Nelson hosts Spokane Friday and Castlegar Saturday as the team moves back to games within the division. Saturday’s game is in the Civic Centre Arena as the Leafs help the city celebrate the arena’s 75th anniversary. [email protected]last_img read more
