Dan Parks retires from international rugby with immediate effect

Posted on by

first_img Dan Parks played his las international match against England last weekendScotland stand-off Dan Parks today announced his retirement from international rugby with immediate effect.In his eight year international career, Parks won 67 caps for Scotland, scoring 266 points, including a Scottish record 17 drop-goals.He was the pivotal figure in Scotland’s successes in 2010, winning a host of Man of the Match awards and steering the side to a historic, unprecedented Test series triumph in Argentina and memorable victories against Ireland and South Africa.  It should also be remembered that he was the Scotland players’ player of the World Cup in 2007, testament to his talent and his immense popularity with his peers.Parks (Cardiff Blues), 33, had been thinking over his decision following the Rugby World Cup, in which he was Man of the Match in the final pool game against England.He told www.scotlandrugbyteam.org: “I was thinking about it but the first game of the Six Nations was against England, the auld enemy, Jacko (Ruaridh Jackson) was injured and being able to play against England was huge for me as there was a sense of unfinished business.“On reflection after the game, after talking it over with my family, girlfriend and close friends I’ve come to the decision that now is the right time to retire from the international game.“There are some really talented guys coming through – Jacko (Ruaridh Jackson), Greig (Laidlaw) and Duncan (Weir) – and although I’m sad to be finishing my international career I have some fantastic memories of playing for Scotland and what that has meant to me. “I’ve no regrets at what has been an amazing career for me.  I’ve got my favourite moments for Scotland – uppermost being the 2007 Rugby World Cup.  Other memorable moments have been the two wins against England at home (2006 and 2008), the win against South Africa here at Murrayfield, the two wins in Argentina in 2010 and one in 2008 and the Ireland game in 2010 which was a great occasion.“There are a lot of people within Scottish rugby who have been good to me.  I would like to thank Matt Williams, Frank Hadden, Andy Robinson and all the various assistant coaches over the years, alongside the medical, fitness, kit, administrative and media staff who have helped me.“I was proud of myself in the way I came back from trouble off the pitch in order to regain my position firstly within the Glasgow team and then the Scotland team.“I also want to thank the loyal fans of the Scotland team.  It’s been a rocky road for me at times but at the end I’ve always given 100 per cent to play at my best and succeed for Scotland. This is not the end of me as a rugby player.  My international career is over but I want to keep playing club rugby.  I always enjoyed my time in Glasgow.  It’s one of great cities I’ve visited, so who knows what will happen in the future.”Scotland head coach Andy Robinson said: “I have really enjoyed working with Dan.  He wasn’t in my first Scotland squads but through his own determination, hard work, skill and competitive spirit he forced his way back into selection.  It’s never an easy decision to make but I feel Dan has made the right decision and thank him for his contribution over the years.” Parks’ half-back partner on many occasions, Edinburgh Rugby’s Mike Blair said: “The reaction of all the guys when Parksy announced his retirement said it all – stunned silence and emotion. Dan is a hugely popular and respected member of the squad and his contribution to some of Scotland’s most famous victories cannot be under-estimated.”The Scotland team to play Wales in Cardiff on Sunday will be announced tomorrow.

Central New York clergy sign open letter advocating for police…

Posted on by

first_img Rector Martinsville, VA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA [Diocese of Central New York] Forty-eight clergy of the Diocese of Central New York, including Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe, have co-signed an open letter to the mayors and police chiefs of Auburn, Binghamton, Cortland, Elmira, Ithaca, Syracuse, Utica and Watertown. The following letter condemns police violence against communities of color and urges an ongoing commitment to collaborative police reform.February 10, 2021We write to you as clergy and faith leaders of the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York. With over 11,000 members, the Diocese includes people of diverse backgrounds, political affiliations and opinions. We find our unity in our common obedience to Jesus Christ’s commandment to love our neighbors. Love for one another is the foundation of our faith: all Episcopalians have vowed, at our baptism, to respect the dignity of every human being and to strive for justice and peace among all people.Just twelve days ago in the city of Rochester, a nine-year-old girl was brutalized and traumatized by police. This incident is part of a sinful pattern of police violence, particularly against communities of color, that plagues our Upstate New York communities and our nation. People of color witness these events and fear for their safety and for the safety of vulnerable loved ones. Children see this racist violence and fear for their lives and for their futures. As faith leaders and as heartbroken citizens, we say, “No more.” United, we are dedicated to the work of building safe communities where love, not fear, prevails.Therefore, with a renewed sense of purpose, we urge your full commitment to the ongoing process of collaborative and transparent police reform in each jurisdiction, as called for by our Governor. As faith leaders, we commit—across our own differences of opinion and political affiliation—to support you in the essential work of:providing officers with adequate and appropriate training in crisis response and nonviolent intervention;holding officers and their leaders accountable for violent and racist actions;strengthening police and community relationships;de-escalating racial and social tensions in our communities with dedicated focus on the work of anti-racism.We recognize the dedicated police officers and public servants who serve with honor and integrity and who find this situation as distressing as we do. We stand ready to work with you in establishing public safety for all our neighbors, supporting our law enforcement officials, expanding access to mental health services, strengthening our schools, reducing gun violence, and alleviating poverty so that our communities may be healed by care, not cowed by violence.Our children are watching and their future, as well as the future of our nation, depends upon what we do next. Thank you for your commitment to justice and safety for all our neighbors.In Christ,The Rt. Rev. Dr. DeDe Duncan-Probe, Bishop of Central New YorkThe Rev. Shelly BannerThe Rev.

Arts Quarter surveys cultural organisations’ income

Posted on by

first_img Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy recession Research / statistics Arts and not-for-profit sector specialists Arts Quarter has released the findings of its Fundraising and Revenue Generation Survey.It reveals what Arts Quarter describe as “a mixed picture”. While many cultural and other not-for-profit organisations reported declines in many areas of fundraising, others are reporting an increase in their wider revenue generation, comparing their results on the previous year.The survey was conducted over January and February 2009 and attracted responses from 306 organisations across the UK.A number of respondents also provided insights into a range of ways in which they are seeking to address any potential shortfalls in the medium term which we have included within the full report.Arts Quarter were able to use the data to compare the situation in cultural sector organisations against that for the wider charity sector.They found that the cultural sector had suffered marginally more from a drop in corporate support than the wider charitable community. Organisations were typically either having to demonstrate even greater value to their sponsors than before, or were reporting that companies had completely withdrawn their support.In contrast, cultural organisations were faring better than the wider charitable sector in terms of retaining funding from grantmaking trusts.Cultural organisations were suffering a higher rate of decline than other charities in individual giving of gifts of less than £1,000.They survey enabled Arts Quarter to compare organisations in London with those elsewhere in the UK.The survey confirmed that both cultural and other charitable organisations outside London were suffering greater declines in corporate giving than those in London. However, London-based organisations reported a greater decline in support from Trusts for both project support and core funding than those based elsewhere in the UK. Similarly, levels of individual giving were also stronger outside London.A copy of the full report is available at no charge from Arts Quarter.www.artsquarter.co.uk/news.html AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 13 March 2009 | News Arts Quarter surveys cultural organisations’ income  36 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Opposition weekly’s computers seized in raid

Even if Minuty Veka did not have all its equipment licenced, this is no reason to close it down.” The 6 February swoop prevented that week’s issue from coming out the next day and the 14 February issue is in doubt. Editor Alexei Andreyev said the raid was linked to the imprisonment of one of the paper’s founders, Nikolai Andrushenko, and because its editorial line.He said Novy Peterburg stopped coming out on 29 November last year, five days after Andrushenko was arrested, but was replaced by a new paper, Minuty Veka.Andrushenko’s home and the paper’s offices were searched and a court accused him of printing “dubious” and “insulting” articles and exerting pressure on legal institutions. He was taken to a psychiatric hospital for tests on 18 December and was held there until 16 January. He wrote to President Vladimir Putin on 4 February saying he wanted to renounce his Russian citizenship because he had been beaten several times in prison.

We also believe that we should do all that we can to recognize those who have not returned and their families. That’s what Recognition Day is all about.”In honor of America, Thrasher and Turner conducted a flag retirement ceremony.“Our flag is a symbol of Americanism and should be disposed of in a dignified way,” Turner said. “The proper way to dispose of an unserviceable flag is by burning. But first, the flag is to be taken apart. A flag ceases to be a flag when it is cut into pieces.”The flag is more than some brightly colored cloth, Turner said. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Members of VFW Post 7055 in Brundidge conducted a Recognition Day service at the Robert E. Barr Nutrition Center in Brundidge Friday.

Winter-like week ahead for millions from the Midwest to the Northeast

Posted on by

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — It has been a very warm fall so far in the Eastern U.S., but this warmth is ending very quickly as several shots of arctic air are moving in. Already this weekend, the coldest air of the season has moved into the East Coast and the Deep South with snow flying near the Great Lakes. Some areas in western New York and south of Buffalo saw up to 5 inches of snow making it look like winter. On Monday morning, the coldest air of the season stretches from Birmingham, Alabama to Boston, Massachusetts, where the actual temperatures are in the 30’s.After Monday’s chill, the East Coast will get a break for a few days as a new arctic blast moves into the Midwest and the Great Lakes Wednesday into Thursday. Some of this cold air will spill into the Northeast by Thursday morning. This will be, by far, the coldest air of this fall season so far. As this new dose of cold air spills east, a storm system will develop in the southern Plains on Wednesday and will track across the Ohio Valley and into the Northeast on Thursday evening. This storm system will interact with colder air spilling into the area and places from the Midwest to the Northeast could see its first snow of the season.By Thursday night, the storm system will move into the Northeast, and it is possible that many areas from Pennsylvania to upstate New York and into New England could see some snow, while places along I-95 will see mostly rain. We have to wait and see exactly who will see what precipitation, because this is still far away and not all models are agreeing on this storm system bringing accumulating snow.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
