LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Ulster ‘It was a successful season for us and we are taking steps in the right direction, but the players and the coaching staff need to keep working hard for next season. Teams are judged on silverware and we have nothing to show for our season. We are determined to win something for the trophy cabinet at Ravenhill next season and to do that we must keep improving.‘I’ve been in the fantastic position of having a leadership role within the squad. I hope I can keep trying to help the younger players and they keep improving. The more games they play and the more experience they get will be of benefit to themselves and Ulster. If, in a couple of years I leave Ulster and have managed to help a few players develop, I will be delighted with that.’ Ulster Rugby today announced that second row forward Johann Muller has signed a one year contract extension.The South African arrived in Belfast last summer from the Natal Sharks on a two year deal and his contract extension means that he will play his rugby for Ulster until June 2013.Muller captained the Ulster team on numerous occasions this season while Rory Best was absent through injury or international duty. He has clocked up an impressive 2027 minutes of the pitch for Ulster during the 2010/11 season, starting all but four of Ulster’s competitive games this season, and he has become a firm favourite with the fans at Ravenhill.Winner of the Heineken Ulster Rugby Personality of the Season at last week’s gala awards ceremony, he was lauded for the contribution he has made to the club both on and off the pitch. He has been credited with inspiring much of the change at Ulster this season, with the team reaching the Heineken Cup quarter final stages for the first time since 1999, as well as the Magners League play offs. On signing the extension Johann said:‘I’m delighted to extend my contract with Ulster Rugby by another year. I’ve really enjoyed my first season with Ulster, not only in terms of rugby but also personally. The people of Northern Ireland have been great to me and my family so staying an extra year wasn’t a decision we had to think about for long.

England fly-half Owen Farrell topped the chart back then, but who is the best player in the world right now?It’s no easy task to put together a list like this, so as well as seeking the opinions of our writers from across the globe, we brought together a panel to debate who should make the cut.Fiji’s gold medal-winning sevens coach Ben Ryan, Wasps Ladies director of rugby Giselle Mather, Welsh broadcaster Ross Harries and Kiwi writer Liam Napier joined us for the selection meeting after this year’s European finals – and more than 200 names were thrown into the mix!DOWNLOAD RUGBY WORLD’S DIGITAL EDITIONCutting those down to 100 meant making tough decisions. Players’ recent form has been given precedence over previous achievements – Johnny Sexton is lower down the pecking order as it hasn’t quite clicked for him in so far 2019 – and we haven’t included those who’ve struggled with injury over the past year, the likes of Taulupe Faletau and David Pocock, as there is no form to judge them on.Comparing players across competitions, positions and genders is difficult, so we looked at players’ influence in their teams as well as their skill-sets.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Chaska, Minnesota] The Episcopal Church Executive Council June 10 pledged to meet a request for $600,000 in financial aid from the Diocese of Fort Worth in the same spirit of creativity that Episcopalians there have used in reorganizing themselves during the past nearly eight years.With Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry calling it not a bailout but an investment in new ways of being church, the approval came on the last day of council’s June 8-10 meeting here.The continuing Diocese of Fort Worth has been reorganizing since November 2008 when a majority of former clergy and lay leaders voted to leave the Episcopal Church. When council last met in February, it gathered in Fort Worth and heard stories of how the diocese does not want to simply reconstruct itself but instead is transforming the way the Episcopal Church ministers in the 24 counties of north central Texas. In part, that effort comes out of necessity as the Episcopal Church and the diocese seek to recover property and other assets still controlled those who left.For instance, the work in some places means worshipping in unconventional spaces such as a theater and a strip mall.And the diocese has built new ministries such as a Thursday lunch program that serves more than 300 Tarleton State University students at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Stephenville. Along with helping hungry college students who are trying to stretch their meals plans by making them feel at home, there’s a prayer box for them to leave requests. Using those requests, the volunteers pray for those students on an on-going basis.During the February meeting council received a request from Fort Worth for $600,000 for the next two years. Over the course of the Chaska meeting, council’s Joint Standing Committee on Local Mission and Ministry, later along with the Finances for Mission committee, came up with a plan to fund most, if not all, of the proposal.The Rev. Frank Logue told his council colleagues that the LMM committee had worked with representatives from Fort Worth since February to creative ways to fund their request, given that trying to find a spare $600,000 in the church’s 2016-2019 budget felt “sort of like a fool’s errand at this point.” And so LMM proposed a plan “which comes to you with tears of joy,” Logue said, that “allows what feels like to me a miracle to happen.”According to committee discussions and the formal resolution passed June 10, council agreed to grant $107,500 to the diocese for its evangelism and church growth ministries in 2016, and $55,000 each in 2017 and 2018. The diocese was encouraged to apply for nearly $188,000 in grants from the Resolution D005 church planting process. Council also committed to helping Fort Worth find other sources of grants and donations for another $200,000.The funding, which will be matched by the diocese and its congregations, will pay for a curacy program to employ and train new priests, help bring clergy who are being paid for half-time work up to full-time salaries, and to hire church planters.The Very Rev. Brian Baker, council member from the Diocese of Northern California, argued during a June 9 Local Mission and Ministry committee meeting for a new approach to how the church helps struggling dioceses. “This isn’t a request for money to keep a sinking ship from sinking, which is a lot of what the church has wasted money on,” he said. “This is a growth opportunity in a diocese that’s growing significantly, and if we just help them with a little more, there’s a big pay-off.”Fort Worth has 17 congregations, including a Lutheran congregation pastored by an Episcopal priest. The diocese has seen a 19.3 percent increase in communicant members and an 11.9 percent increase in operating revenue. Since reorganizing in 2009, Fort Worth has annually paid the full amount asked of it by the Episcopal Church to support the churchwide triennial budget. It is the only one of six dioceses in the state of Texas to do so.The Rev. Janet Waggoner, canon to the ordinary in the Diocese of Fort Worth, thanks Executive Council for its support of what she called the work of resurrection that is ongoing in the diocese. Photo: Brian Baker“It’s really important to our morale to continue to pay our full assessment,” the Rev. Janet Waggoner, canon to the ordinary in the Diocese of Fort Worth, told the Local Mission and Ministry committee during a June 8 meeting.She said she is a latecomer to the transformation of the diocese. “It’s the people of God of the Diocese of Fort Worth who are doing this work,” she said. “They would do it all out of their own pockets if they could, but they can’t.”After council passed the resolution, Waggoner told the members that “the growth, the resurrection continues to roll out as together we lift up the name of Jesus” in the diocese.“This is the Jesus Movement on the ground and I am so thankful to be a part of it myself and to have this connection with the whole of the Episcopal Church because this story is our story. May the light of the Gospel spread abroad in every way and if we can be an example we are happy to do that,” she said to applause and a standing ovation.During a post-meeting news conference, the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies and vice chair of council, said Fort Worth and the other emerging dioceses could teach the rest of the church. Jennings recently met with the bishops in Fort Worth, Pittsburgh, San Joaquin and South Carolina who, she said, told her that those dioceses have all faced, not through own choice, enormous changes of the kind that the rest of the church is going to have to face or is already facing in terms of diminished assets like revenue and property.“I think they have an enormous amount to teach the rest of us,” she said, adding that all of those dioceses have faced the grief of their losses and are now “turning it into a faith-based stance” of discerning who they are called to be by God in their context.“I think they bring enormous hope to the rest of us,” she said. “Frankly we may think we are doing things for them by Executive Council adopting the resolution and giving them $600,000, but I think what we have not measured yet the amazing things they are teaching the rest of us. We really have to pay attention and learn from those dioceses.”Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry concurred, saying the plan is “not a bail-out; this is an investment to move the church forward.” He called it a “major evangelical initiative in an emerging context,” creating other models for the rest of the church.Executive Council’s Joint Standing Committees on Finances for Mission and Local Mission and Ministry met together June 9 to agree to find ways to support the growing mission and evangelism in the Diocese of Fort Worth. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceIn other action, council:Allotted $1.5 million in sustainability grants (budget line item 167) for the four principal dioceses engaged in Native American ministry. The items covered in the grants range from leadership training and youth ministry to solar panels and money to buy a backhoe so it is less expensive for residents of the Standing Rock Indian Reservation to have graves dug for their deceased relatives. Curry said the grants were “putting feet on the Jesus Movement” and embodying both evangelism and racial reconciliation.Agreed to continue to support an emerging partnership between the church and two historically black college with Episcopal roots: Voorhees College in Denmark, South Carolina, and St. Augustine’s University in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Episcopal Historically Black Colleges and Universities Task Group has been fostering that partnership.Took a historic step to authorize spending up to $3.3 million to help implement a capital campaign and eventually move the Archives of the Episcopal Church into an anticipated new building in Austin, Texas. Currently the Archives’ 20,000 cubic feet of materials are spread over five locations and most of the collection cannot be accessed easily, according to Canonical Archivist Mark Duffy. Negotiations are underway with potential developers of an Episcopal Church-owned lot in Austin, Duffy said. The goal is to have a new home there for the Archives in five years. Details of the proposed project are here.Passed resolutions affirming both the church’s support of laws that prevent discrimination based on gender identity or gender expression as set forth in General Convention Resolution 2009-D012 and its ongoing support of a living wage for all hourly workers. Jennings said during the news conference said that the non-discrimination resolution follows on a trajectory that dates to at least 1985 when then-newly elected Presiding Bishop Edmund Browning declared that there could no outcasts from the Episcopal Church. She said she and Curry would soon have more to say to the church about the issue and what she called a “significant resolution.” The living-wage resolution engendered debate over the efficacy of such a wage floor. George Wing, council member from Colorado, said requiring a $15 an hour actually reduces employment. And, he said, $15 an hour means something different in Manhattan than it does in other parts of the country. The Rev. Marion Luckey, Diocese of Northern Michigan, agreed saying that “in our area of the country it’s very prejudicial to ask a small business to pay this kind of wage.” Luckey said she was in favor of a living wage but opposed mandating it, since it “really has unintended consequences.” The Rev. Stan Runnels, Diocese of West Missouri, said “I understand the challenge of $15 an hour in different places. … It’s a stretch; so is justice.”Agreed that council and the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget & Finance “shall seriously consider” reducing the annual draw on investment income to 4.5 percent by 2021. The action came in response to warnings from council’s investment committee and treasurer N. Kurt Barnes that the trend of recent triennial budgets in taking more from the church’s investment income than what had been its normal annual 5 percent was “is eroding the future purchasing power” of those investments. In a related matter, the Rev. Mally Lloyd, Executive Council member from the Diocese of Massachusetts and a member of the church’s Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget & Finance, outlined the Finances for Ministry committee’s plan for developing the 2019-2021 budget that council must propose early in 2018. And she said that FFM had decided, in conversation with Curry and Jennings, to not base that proposal on the Five Marks of Mission as has been the case for the last two triennial budgets. “Not that we don’t like them but they limit the way the budget can be put together,” she said.The June 8-10 meeting took place at the Oak Ridge Hotel and Conference Center in Chaska, a southern suburb of Minneapolis and St. Paul.A summary of resolutions council passed during the meeting is here.Previous ENS coverage of the Chaska meeting is here.Council next meets Oct. 20-22 in New Brunswick, New Jersey, during which the members are expected to visit the Episcopal Church Center, about 40 miles northeast in midtown Manhattan.The Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1). The council is composed of 38 members – 20 of whom (four bishops, four priests or deacons, and 12 lay people) are elected by General Convention and 18 (one clergy and one lay) by the nine provincial synods for six-year terms – plus the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies. In addition, the vice president of the House of Deputies, secretary, chief operating officer, treasurer and chief financial officer have seat and voice but no vote. – The Rev.

On Monday, the Shelbyville native was asked to serve as the master of ceremonies for the Indiana Inauguration, the swearing in ceremony for Governor Eric Holcomb, Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch, and Attorney General Todd Rokita.“I got a phone call from one of Governor Holcomb’s assistants, Sam, and he called me saying that the governor had requested me to serve in this position. When I got to the inauguration, about 20 minutes before, I got to talk to Janet, who is the governor’s wife, and I found out she was actually a 10-year 4-H member and showed horses and sheep. So, she’s got the agricultural background, and her and Governor Holcomb both wanted to try to incorporate a youth leader to be the master of ceremonies.”And what was the experience like for Hamblen?“It was incredible! I remember I walked into the Indiana State Museum in my official dress with my mom next to me, and I get to the entrance of the auditorium, and there’s somebody waiting there for me. I got a mask that said the inauguration on it, the program, I was escorted inside to do a run through, and the moment that Governor Holcomb walked in he stood on stage and we got to do a run through together and I was just in awe.”Hamblen has also received an invite to Governor Holcomb’s State of the State Address next week.Holcomb had very kind words to say about Hamblen during his speech after being sworn in.

News March 29, 2016 Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns aggressive behavior from Trump campaign manager Donald Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was charged this morning with battery after an incident with journalist Michelle Fields at an event in Florida earlier this month. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) reiterates its concerns about harsh and agressive treatment of the press during the US presidential election. AmericasUnited States Violence News Receive email alerts Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says June 7, 2021 Find out more This is the latest incident where Donald Trump and his campaign have made clear his disregard for freedom of the press. Previously, Donald Trump’s team has restricted media access to campaign events, he has insulted and bullied reporters who portray him negatively or ask him tough questions, and refused to participate in a republican debate because FoxNews refused to remove its reporter Megyn Kelly as a moderator.Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for all candidates in the US presidential election to respect freedom of the press and cease harsh and aggressive treatment of reporters at campaign events. “We condemn this aggressive behavior from Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski,” said Delphine Halgand, RSF USA’s Director. Corey Lewandowski, campaign manager for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, has been charged with simple battery following an altercation with journalist Michelle Fields on March 8, 2016. He self-surrendered to Florida police this morning. According to the police report, Lewandowski “grabbed [journalist] [Michelle] Fields’ left arm with his right hand causing her to turn and step back.” Michelle Fields, a journalist working at the time for conservative news outlet Breitbart, has shared images online of her bruised arm where she said Lewandowski grabbed her forcefully. She later said “campaign managers aren’t supposed to try to forcefully throw reporters to the ground, no matter the circumstance.”Trump’s actions during the run up to the 2016 presidential election mark an alarming trend of curtailing freedom of the press in the United States. Since 2013, the U.S.’s ranking on Reporters Without Borders’ World Press Freedom Index has fallen by 14 points. It is now ranked 49 out of 180 countries.

The publisher, who turns 49 years old today in HMP Belmarsh, is facing extradition to the United States where he has been indicted under the Espionage Act for WikiLeaks’ 2010-11 publications of the Iraq War Logs, the Afghan War Diaries, and State Department cables. If convicted, Mr Assange would face up to 175 years in prison, “tantamount to a death sentence.” July 3, 2020 Forty rights groups call on the UK to release Julian Assange Help by sharing this information RSF_en United KingdomEurope – Central Asia ImprisonedFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment News News Rt Hon Robert Buckland QC MPSecretary of State for Justice and Lord ChancellorMinistry of Justice102 Petty FranceLondonSW1H 9AJ3 July 2020RE: Open letter calling for the release of WikiLeaks publisher Julian AssangeCC: Rt Hon Dominic Raab, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth AffairsDear Rt Hon Robert Buckland QC MP,On 8 June 2020, responding to a question in the House of Lords about the United Kingdom’s stance regarding the protection of journalists and press freedoms, Minister of State Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon said, “Media freedom is vital to open societies. Journalists must be able to investigate and report without undue interference”.We, the undersigned, agree with this statement and call on the UK government to uphold its commitment to press freedom in its own country. At the time of Lord Ahmad’s remarks, WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange had been imprisoned on remand in the high-security HMP Belmarsh for more than a year as he faces extradition to the United States on charges of publishing. We call on the UK government to release Mr Assange from prison immediately and to block his extradition to the US.The US government has indicted Mr Assange on 18 counts for obtaining, possessing, conspiring to publish and for publishing classified information. The indictment contains 17 counts under the Espionage Act of 1917 and one charge of conspiring (with a source) to violate the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which uses Espionage Act language. This is the first ever use of such charges for the publication of truthful information in the public interest, and it represents a gravely dangerous attempt to criminalise journalist-source communications and the publication by journalists of classified information, regardless of the newsworthiness of the information and in complete disregard of the public’s right to know. On 24 June 2020, the US Department of Justice issued a second superseding indictment against Mr Assange, adding no new charges but expanding on the charge for conspiracy to commit computer intrusion. This new indictment employs a selective and misleading narrative in an attempt to portray Mr Assange’s actions as nefarious and conspiratorial rather than as contributions to public interest reporting.The charges against Mr Assange carry a potential maximum sentence of 175 years in prison. Sending Mr Assange to the US, where a conviction is a near certainty, is tantamount to a death sentence. This is an unprecedented escalation of an already disturbing assault on journalism in the US, where President Donald Trump has referred to the news media as the “enemy of the people”. Whereas previous presidents have prosecuted whistleblowers and other journalistic sources under the Espionage Act for leaking classified information, the Trump Administration has taken the further step of going after the publisher. Mr Assange himself has been persecuted for publishing for nearly a decade. In 2012, with fears of a US prosecution that later proved prescient, Mr Assange sought and was granted asylum from the government of Ecuador, and he entered the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Because the UK declined to guarantee Mr Assange wouldn’t be extradited to the US, the United Nations’ Working Group on Arbitrary Detention ruled that Mr Assange’s detention was indeed arbitrary and called on the UK to “immediately [allow] Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to walk free from the Ecuadorian embassy in London”.President Obama’s administration prosecuted US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning for disclosing hundreds of thousands of documents to WikiLeaks on the US’ wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as State Department cables and files on inmates at the Guantanamo Bay prison. But the administration, which had empanelled a Grand Jury investigation into WikiLeaks as early as 2010, explicitly decided not to prosecute Mr Assange due to what it termed the “New York Times problem.” As the Washington Post explained in November 2013, “If the Justice Department indicted Assange, it would also have to prosecute the New York Times and other news organizations and writers who published classified material, including The Washington Post and Britain’s Guardian newspaper”.When President Trump came to power, then-Attorney General of the US Jeff Sessions announced that prosecuting Assange would be a “priority”, despite the fact that no new evidence or information had come to light in the case. In April 2017, in a startling speech against WikiLeaks’ constitutional right to publish, then-CIA director Mike Pompeo declared WikiLeaks a “non-state hostile intelligence service” and said, “Julian Assange has no First Amendment privileges”.On 11 April 2019, Ecuador illegally terminated Mr Assange’s diplomatic asylum in violation of the Geneva Refugee Convention and invited the British police into their embassy, where he was immediately arrested at the request of the US. Mr Assange served a staggering 50 weeks in prison for a bail violation, but when that sentence ended in September 2019, he was not released. Mr Assange continues to be detained at HMP Belmarsh, now solely at the behest of the US. Even before the lockdown initiated by the coronavirus pandemic, Mr Assange has been held in conditions approaching solitary confinement, confined to his cell more than 22 hours a day. Now under containment measures, Mr Assange is even more isolated, and he hasn’t seen his own children in several months. Furthermore, Mr Assange has been allowed extremely limited access to his lawyers and documents, severely hampering his ability to participate in his own legal defence. Following a visit to HMP Belmarsh accompanied by medical doctors in May 2019, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture Nils Melzer determined that Mr Assange had endured psychological torture.Mr Assange’s extradition hearing, which commenced for one week in February 2020 and is scheduled to continue for three more weeks, is set to resume in September. But the coronavirus, which has reportedly already killed at least one fellow inmate at HMP Belmarsh and which continues to spread through prisons at an alarming rate, puts the health and well-being of Mr Assange, who suffers from a chronic lung condition that makes him especially vulnerable to Covid-19, at serious risk.The continued persecution of Mr Assange is contributing to a deterioration of press freedom in the UK and is serving to tarnish the UK’s international image. Reporters Without Borders cited the disproportionate sentencing of Mr Assange to 50 weeks in prison for breaking bail, the Home Office’s decision to greenlight the US extradition request, and Mr Assange’s continued detention as factors in the UK’s decline in ranking to 35th out of 180 countries in the 2020 World Press Freedom Index.We call on the UK government to release Mr Assange without further delay and block his extradition to the US – a measure that could save Mr Assange’s life and preserve the press freedom that the UK has committed to championing globally.
