Terrific Taylor Scotland’s Duncan Taylor gave a great performance in a losing cause against Wales on Saturday. The centre made a superb try-saving tackle on Tom James when Scotland were leading during the second half. The Wales wing raced out of defence up the left, but Taylor made great ground to chase across the pitch, then timed his tackle perfectly to stop a certain score. Late in the game Taylor scored a lovely try of his own, taking a fine scoring pass from Ruaridh Jackson and beating the defence to touch down.He’s through! Duncan Taylor wrong-foots Gareth Anscombe and scores. (Photo: Getty Images) Sam sews it up Sam Davies picked up the Man of the Match award after scoring 16 points as the Ospreys beat Munster 21-17 in Cork. The Opsreys are the first team to defeat Munster there for three years. Davies spotted a gap and darted over the line for a try, was held up just short as he attempted to score a second, and he kicked a conversion and three penalties. He missed the conversion of Owen Watkin’s try, and a penalty, but still played a major role in taking the Ospreys to a win which keeps them in touch with the top four. Some shone and some struggled in the second round of RBS Six Nations matches, but there were even more thrills and spills in the Aviva Premiership and Guinness Pro12. Unstoppable: Jonathan Joseph powers over the line to complete his hat-trick. (Photo: Getty Images) The SaintsJJ steals the showJonathan Joseph helped England turn pressure into points with three really well-taken tries during their 40-9 RBS Six Nations win over Italy in Rome. With England just 11-9 up after 52 minutes, the outside centre intercepted a pass from Leonardo Sarto to Michelle Campagnaro and ran in from the Italy 22 to score.Five minutes later Joseph called for Danny Care to put in a kick through the defence after England had driven a lineout close to the Italy line. Care executed with perfection, the ball bounced up kindly and Joseph snaffled it and dived over.He completed his hat-trick on 70 minutes, this time showing great strength to muscle his way over the line from five metres out with two defenders hanging off him. Before the end Joseph put in a marvellous kick off the outside of his boot for Anthony Watson to chase up the left and only secure defending from Luke McLean stopped another try. Chugging championsIreland have won the last two Six Nations titles but seem to have blown any chance of making it three in a row as last weekend’s draw with Wales was followed by a 10-9 loss to France in a mostly turgid game in Paris. Ireland had 58% of the territory and 50% of the possession in the first half but only managed to build up a 9-3 lead.They made zero – yes, zero – line-breaks in the game, just one solitary offload and missed 17 tackles. Yes, they were hurt by injuries, but they really have to find a way to create some tries and give their supporters a bit more to cheer.Gloomy outlook: Ireland look dejected after their loss in Paris. (Photo: Inpho) Perfect finish: Billy McBryde kicks the winning penalty for Wales U20 (Photo: Huw Evans Agency).Young dudesTwo Under-20s players are on our Saints list this weekend. First up is England U20 hooker Jack Singleton who scored no less than four tries in Friday’s 42-7 win over Italy U20.Wales U20 replacement Billy McBryde is also a Saint after coming off the bench in the 79th minute of the match against Scotland, with the scores tied at 15-15, and winning the game for Wales with a last-ditch penalty. The SinnersBad callNo one expects match officials to get everything right, but it is fair to hope they might not err when they use the TMO. However, during Saturday’s Wales v Scotland match referee George Clancy and his team managed to award what turned out to be a crucial try to Wales scrum-half Gareth Davies when he had been in an offside position at the moment Jamie Roberts tapped down a high ball at the start of the move.Clancy used TMO Graham Hughes to rule on whether Roberts had knocked the ball on, but when it was shown that he hadn’t, Clancy awarded the try and didn’t penalise Davies for offside. As Wales won the match 27-23, it turned out to be a score of some significance.Of course, Scotland made their share of errors too, not least John Hardie and WP Nel who both fumbled and knocked-on at crucial times. Triple doubleTwo tries each from Nathan Hughes, Charles Piutau and Dan Robson took Wasps to an astonishing 64-23 win over Aviva Premiership leaders Saracens at Allianz Park. Hughes also set up Robson’s second try with a strong break. Thomas Young and Jimmy Gopperth were the other try-scorers, while Josh Bassett’s storming sprint down the left wing created Youngs’ score. Prop-tasticFriday night was a special one for Ulster loosehead Callum Black. He led the team out for their Guinness Pro12 clash with Glasgow Warriors as he was making his 100th appearance for the province, then put the icing on the cake by scoring his first try for Ulster, helping them to a 13-10 win which retained their place at the top of the table. Plaudits also go to Man of the Match Craig Gilroy. TAGS: HighlightWasps LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Super Sub Scarlets outside-half Aled Thomas came off the bench to kick four penalties, including one at the death, to take his team to a 22-21 win over Edinburgh and keep them in touch with the leaders of the Guinness Pro12.The Scarlets were 16-6 up as the hour mark approached but then tries from Cornell du Preez and Alex Toolis looked like securing the win for the Scottish side, before Thomas struck. Centre of attention Jamie Roberts was named Man of the Match in Wales’s 27-23 RBS Six Nations win over Scotland on Saturday. For the second week in a row the centre put in a monumental performance. He cut a great line to score a try which took Wales from 16-13 down to 20-16 up, made eight carries to keep Wales on the front foot, in defence he brought off nine tackles and even won a turnover. George North also gave the home fans at the Principality Stadium something to cheer as he scorched in for a vital try with ten minutes to go, exploiting poor defence by Scotland. All Hale HaleyMike Haley was a hero for Sale Sharks in their 23-17 win over Exeter Chiefs, helping them to back up last weekend’s 10-3 triumph over Leicester with another win over high-flying opponents.Looking for a chance: Mike Haley scored a cute try for Sale. (Photo: Getty Images)Danny Cipriani tried a snap drop-goal when Sale were 10-0 up, the ball bounced back off the upright and Haley flipped it up with his left foot, grabbed it and strode over the line for a real opportunist’s try. Johnny Leota and Nev Edwards scored the Sharks’ other tries. Chasing shadows: Saracens can’t catch Charles Piutau, or many other Wasps! (Photo: Getty Images)Toothless Tigers and sorry SarriesThe Leicester team which lost 26-14 to then bottom-of-the-table Newcastle Falcons on Friday night were placed firmly in the doghouse en masse by their director of rugby Richard Cockerill. The win lifted Newcastle up two places in the Aviva Premiership table and cut the Tigers slightly adrift from the top two. Missed opportunitiesWorcester Warriors find themselves well and truly in the midst of a relegation battle in the Aviva Premiership after their 16-14 home defeat by fellow-strugglers Bath and a few key mistakes proved costly.Warriors’ director of rugby Dean Ryan was unhappy that referee JP Doyle and his team had missed a deliberate knock-on by Ross Batty as Cooper Vuna fired out what could have been a scoring pass to Gerrit-Jan van Velze. If the offence, in the shadow of the posts, had been spotted Worcester would have had a match-winning shot at goal, but they had already earned a few of those and missed them.Ryan Mills pushed a penalty wide of the posts late in the game, Tom Heathcote fired another one wide and Ryan Lamb had a drop-goal attempt charged down. All smiles: Newcastle celebrate a try by Adam Powell (second right). (Photo: Getty Images)Landmark winNewcastle Falcons beat Leicester for the first time since 2009 and while Friday’s 26-14 triumph was inevitably a great team effort, a few players deserve a special mention. Simon Hammersley started and finished a try which took the Falcons from 6-0 down to 7-6 up, with a long run out of defence, then cut a good line from the 22 after smart work from Alex Tait.The Newcastle pack also had an immense game, with Nili Latu and Will Welch to the fore. The forwards created the pressure to set up Adam Powell’s try which made it 20-9, and helped earn the penalty chances which Andy Goode kicked. “I am bitterly disappointed with that performance,” Cockerill told BT Sport. “What we did tonight wasn’t acceptable from a Leicester point of view. We knew they would be tough, very direct and we knew they would be well organised and we were none of those things. We need to have a hard look at ourselves and make sure we start putting a few things right.” Ouch.Saracens might also have expected to be in from a tongue-lashing from their boss Mark McCall after losing 64-23 to Wasps at home, but all McCall could do afterwards was look back on the great form his side have shown for months on end and say: “Today it went really badly wrong. We have got to respond to it and I’m sure we will.”

Most people didn’t get to keep their health plan. Didn’t get to keep their doctor. It was shoved down our throats. I had to have the Obama Care that I DIDN’T or pay the fine. I had to pay for the insurance, and pay my doctor bill out of pocket. That’s why I dropped my health insurance in the first place that I had before Obama Care. Then when I turned 65 they didn’t take me off of it (Which I got a call asking me if I still was going to be on it and I told them I wouldn’t need it after June 1st.) but I wasn’t taken off of it, so I got stuck paying some of it back.

Dorothy Royal says: Rector Bath, NC [Episcopal Public Policy Network policy alert] Over the past two weeks, U.S. senators have worked transparently and diligently on bipartisan legislation to improve health care for Americans. Yet now, Senate leaders are risking undermining progress in their own bipartisan reform process with a new attempt to repeal health care for tens of millions of Americans. The legislation, known as the Graham-Cassidy bill would reduce the scale and impact of Medicaid and make it harder for millions of Americans to access affordable health care. The Graham-Cassidy bill lacks the benefits of informed public hearings with experts and thoughtful bipartisan compromises, and does not address the concerns highlighted in earlier ACA repeal efforts.Call the Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and urge your senators to oppose Graham-Cassidy!Sample Call Script:“Hello, my name is ___. I am your constituent, a person of faith, an Episcopalian, and I am calling to urge Senator ___ tooppose the Graham-Cassidy bill which would devastate millions Americans.A reform of this magnitude needs bipartisan fixes and transparent evaluation. I’m concerned that a bill this important would be considered when it is not public and has not had serious vetting, analysis, and comment from the people it will impact.Over the past months, our nation has suffered from the division, fear, and confusion created by rushed consideration of secret partisan proposals on health care.I have been encouraged by the recent bipartisan agreement to secure the future of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and hearings and negotiations on practical steps to stabilize the affordability of health insurance for example, and I urge the Senator to focus on supporting these types of measures.I am praying for you, and I hope you will oppose the Graham-Cassidy bill.Call now!

So why does our church need an Episcopal Public Policy Network? Most of your sample script sounds like it was copied from this week’s DNC talking points, a position which I dare say, a large number (and I will not get into quantifying that) of parishioners are in disagreement. So much for loving your neighbor, or fellow parishioner. No, I do know you love your neighbor, and your fellow parishioners, as do I, …but think twice… before putting out a “call to arms”.

That is the transformation this building in Tienen, Belgium. The primary incentive of this renovation was to optimize the orientation without radical demolition to the main volume. Save this picture!© Steven MassartIn 2020 the resident bought the house at the other side of the street. Knowing the house, they saw the potential of the building. They had the ambition to give the building a more contemporary look. Furthermore they wanted a functional garage and above al a strong relation with the yard and the fields behind them. The panoramic views over the meadow slopes where the Flemish and Walloon regions of Belgium meet each other.Save this picture!© Steven MassartIn order to realize their ideas, the young couple teamed up with architect Peter Van Impe of the architect and engineers office AST 77. Looking for a perfect fit for his costumers, Peter Van Impe started from a clean sheet, finding answers for their demands together with the complex morphology of the location in mind. His solution was to get rid of all the small annexes build over the years, only keeping the main building. Two new volumes were added, a garage with technical installations and a living space.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Cross sectionA glass corridor connects the new open living space, located at the back of the plot, with the existing building. This approach leads to many advantages: the house was divided in a clear night and day zone. When the kids are asleep the parents can continue their activities in the living space without disrupting the little ones. Thanks to the use of a lot of glass, there is a clear visual connection between both of the entities. Thanks to the use of the glass corridor, two patios were formed between the existing and the new volume. This open space allows the sunlight inside in the morning, as well as in the evening.Save this picture!© Steven MassartBoth the new and the existing volume are wrapped in the same materials. Peter Van Impe chose wood and fiber cement cladding because of their fairness and sustainability. Looking from the street, the ground floor is covered with Thermowood. Between the wooden slats lays a spacing of 3 cm. This provides a strong vertical play of lines, but also guaranties a uniform aging of the slats. On the first floor of the main volume the designer chose a grey fibrecement cladding. To keep the proportions of the building and to keep the duality with the ground floor he drew the panels horizontally. The sizes of the panels vary and are stacked in a random bond.Save this picture!© Steven MassartOn a technical base the designer chose a budget friendly system, yet with a maximum of options for the future. Today a compensation boiler working on natural gas provides the needed energy for heating and sanitary hot water. Since the whole building works on a low temperature regiment, the owner can easily switch in the future to a heating pump.Save this picture!© Steven MassartProject gallerySee allShow lessONOFFICE Awarded First Prize for Botanical Park in CyprusArchitecture NewsResidence n. n / J.

By Ryan Martin – Sep 27, 2019 Other than a little bit of moisture still holding over the northern part of the state Saturday and a weak front Thursday, a good chunk of this week will be suitable to get in the field, if you have crops ready.We continue to see some moisture tracking over the northern third of Indiana to start the weekend, a follow through on moisture that began tracking across the WCB and into the Upper Midwest/Great Lakes over late this past week. The moisture will stay mostly north of the Hoosier Heartland Corridor, and should be a little less in terms of frequency than what we have seen to this point. Central and southern Indiana will stay dry through Saturday, although clouds will be around.We are fully dry Sunday through Wednesday. Skies turn out partly sunny on Sunday, but will be fully sunny Monday through Wednesday. Temps remain above normal through that period, thanks to good south flow.A minor front arrives Thursday, sagging through the state from NW to SE. Moisture is not impressive at all, and in fact we may only see a few hundredths to .25” of rain with 50% coverage. Still, we can’t call it a fully dry day. The best chances of rain within that 50% coverage estimate will be central and northern Indiana.Dry again for Friday and Saturday, with full sunshine and near normal temps. Much cooler air is coming in, but following the warm start to the week, it will feel cooler than it truly is, compared to normal.Our best chance at a well-organized rain event for the entire state will come next Saturday night through Sunday. A strong cold front will bring showers and thunderstorms to 80% of Indiana with rain totals from .25”-.75”. All moisture should be done by midnight Sunday night. Map below shows 10-day rain potential.Extended Period:For the extended 11-16 day period, we are back to a fully dry outlook. We have plenty of sun with no threat of rain for Monday the 7th through Saturday the 12th. Temps do pull back some for that period, and will be normal to slightly below.Weeks 3 & 4:Both week 3 and week for seem to have only minor frontal boundary activity moving through. This should lead to good harvest windows, and on average only one threat of rain each week.Week 3Precipitation, week ending September 20 (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperature, Week ending September 27 (orange: above normal, blue: below)Week 4Precipitation, Week ending September 27 (green: above normal, brown: below)Temperature, Week ending September 27 (orange: above normal, blue: below) Facebook Twitter Harvest Weather Forecast: Harvest Window Opens Wide Next Week Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Harvest Weather Forecast: Harvest Window Opens Wide Next Week SHARE Previous articleStress During Grain Fill: A Harbinger of Stalk Health ProblemsNext articleRFA Sets EPA Straight on U.S. Ethanol Demand Ryan Martin

Courtesy BBDO New York and Sandy Hook Promise(NEW YORK) — Every year without her son Dylan and his classmates who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School is unimaginably difficult for Nicole Hockley, but this year brought fresh pain. The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas this February marked the deadliest school shooting since the one in Newtown, Connecticut in December 2012. “Parkland hit me and all of Sandy Hook Promise incredibly hard, as it hit the whole country,” Hockley said, referring to the gun violence prevention group she co-founded in the wake of her son’s death. The two tragedies drew instant comparisons, and they came together directly at the White House earlier this year when President Donald Trump held a listening session on gun violence the week after the Florida shooting. Hockley was seated next to Sam Zeif, a Parkland survivor who issued an emotional call to action. “Being in the room with a lot of those parents and kids — where the grief was incredibly raw — it was very much like looking at myself five years ago,” Hockley told ABC News last week. “You really do feel like the earth isn’t balanced underneath your feet,” she said. “That whole first year I felt like I was walking on a tilt.” The parallels between Sandy Hook and Parkland — both of which are among the 10 deadliest shootings in modern U.S. history — make for easy juxtapositions. But Hockley says that the wounds re-emerge much more often, with every shooting. “Each shooting we take very personally because we feel it was another preventable shooting and we haven’t trained people fast enough,” Hockley said. She and Mark Barden, whose son Daniel was also killed in Newtown, founded Sandy Hook Promise to help combat school shootings as well as gun suicides and other forms of gun violence. “We know logically that we can’t reach them all, but we know in our hearts we want to,” she said. As part of that effort, the group organizes training sessions in schools and guidelines for how students, parents and teachers can know the signs of gun violence. Their latest annual ad stressing the importance of being aware of such warning signs was released Monday morning on ABC News’ Good Morning America.The ad, directed by Rupert Sanders — best known for directing Snow White and the Huntsman — uses a twist to shock the viewer at the end of a seemingly normal high school day. “Folks are going to find it a gut punch,” Barden said of the ad. “It’s powerful. It’s hard-hitting. It’s real, but it absolutely emphasizes that there are warning signs.” Barden said that the work that he and the team at Sandy Hook Promise have done helps him in the wake of Daniel’s death. “I have to keep reminding myself of all the good work we are doing, and all the mass shootings that didn’t happen because of our work and all the suicides we have prevented,” he said, noting that more than 5.5 million children and adults have received the group’s training. “We are getting anecdotal evidence from the field literally every day” about prevented shootings or instances of gun violence, Barden said, adding “it’s a good counterweight to these statistics of the growing number of mass shootings.” He doesn’t have to go far to see the reality and regularity of shootings in America impacting children, though. He sees it with his daughter. Daniel Barden was 7 years old when he was killed at Sandy Hook, and he had two older siblings, Natalie who was 10 years old at the time and James who was 12 years old. “I’ve heard my Natalie express things just recently,” Barden said of his daughter, now 16.“She was having an anxiety attack at the movie theater,” he said. “She was afraid she was going to get shot. That shouldn’t be normal.” “You can’t say ‘You’ll be okay, don’t worry,’ … she has every right to have that concern and I don’t know what to say,” Barden told ABC News. He said he places his greatest hope in the notion that future generations won’t be subject to the kind of horror and fear his own children have endured. “I do feel like, ‘Hang in there, Natalie, we’re on it.’… Natalie’s kids won’t have to worry about being shot in the movie theater or being shot at the beach,” he said. Hockley said that the group believes that gun violence prevention is a two-generation campaign, and she hopes that the invigorated students who have become vocal advocates in the wake of the Parkland shooting will help lead to massive, sweeping change. “Now that the Parkland student leaders have given voice to youth… that’s powerful, so that’s why we’re seeing more movement and more noise,” she said. “I would love for Sandy Hook Promise not to exist,” she said. “My goal in life is to put this organization out of business.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

ABC News(NEW YORK) — Monsoon storms dropped as much as 2 to 3” of rain in a short period of time, creating flash flooding in parts of Southern California and Arizona Thursday. Some roads even had to shut down due to the water rushing over them. The monsoon storms are mostly over, and now our attention turns to a new storm system with a cold front moving into the Plains and the Midwest. The biggest threat with these storms will be damaging winds and large hail, and flash flooding is also possible — although the tornado threat is low Friday.Meanwhile, winter storm watches and warnings have been issued for Idaho, Montana and Washington state.A winter storm will be especially severe for parts of Western Montana, where some areas could see up to 50 inches of snow.The National Weather Service is saying that this snowstorm could be compared to the September 1934 snowstorm, and that some snowfall records could fall this weekend.In addition to heavy snow, winds are expected to gust near 50 mph, which will create near-zero visibility and blizzard-like conditions.Cold temperatures and wind chills are also expected Sunday in the Northern Rockies and the Pacific Northwest.In the Tropical Atlantic, there are still two tropical cyclones. Lorenzo is a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 145 mph, that poses no threat to any land.And Karen is barely a tropical storm as of Friday morning. With winds of 40 mph, she’s expected to dissipate and not pose any threat to the U.S. or any landmass.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
