All Blacks pay tribute to Maradona before beating Argentina

first_img Honouring an icon: Sam Cane lays down a ’10’ jersey in memory of Diego Maradona (Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS All Blacks pay tribute to Maradona before beating ArgentinaNew Zealand paid tribute to Diego Maradona before their Tri-Nations match against Argentina at McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle, Australia.The sporting icon died aged 60 last week and New Zealand captain Sam Cane presented the Pumas with an All Blacks jersey featuring the number ‘10’ – the Argentina footballer’s shirt number – and ‘Maradona’ before his team performed the haka. A special gesture from the All Blacks to Argentina before tonight’s Haka.: @skysportnz #ARGvNZL pic.twitter.com/IRlGvmFgyV— All Blacks (@AllBlacks) November 28, 2020As for the match itself, the All Blacks bounced back from two straight defeats to beat the Pumas 38-0 and put themselves in pole position to win the Tri-Nations.Argentina were unable to dominate the tackle area as they did in recording a first-ever victory over New Zealand two weeks ago and while their defence stood up well for 60 minutes the All Blacks were able to pull clear with four tries in the final quarter.Despite dominating the first 40 minutes – they had 74% possession and made only 16 tackles to Argentina’s 90 – New Zealand led just 10-0 at the break.Dane Coles scored the only try of the half when he was found in space on the wing… Everyone’s favourite thing to watch. Dane Coles scoring in the corner. : @skysportnz #ARGvNZL pic.twitter.com/2B41IxNynf — All Blacks (@AllBlacks) November 28, 2020The Pumas defended impressively to deny the All Blacks any further tries until the 62nd minute, but Ardie Savea then went over from a set lineout move and New Zealand broke clear in the last quarter.Will Jordan scored two tries in two minutes after arriving from the bench. The first came as he pounced on a loose ball and ran under the posts after an Argentina attack broke down; the second when he intercepted a Pumas pass and sprinted clear down the wing. New Zealand are Tri-Nations champions in waiting after 38-0 victory over the Pumas Two words. WILL JORDAN #NZvArg pic.twitter.com/898HKjRmPP— Sky Sport NZ (@skysportnz) November 28, 2020Patrick Tuipulotu added the final flourish with a try in the 85th minute after a multi-phased attack from their own half.The bonus-point victory puts the All Blacks five points clear at the top of the table and it will take something incredible from either Argentina or Australia in the final Tri-Nations match next weekend to deny New Zealand the title.The only way one of those teams can usurp the All Blacks is with a bonus-point victory by a huge margin. New Zealand have a comfortable points difference of +64 while Australia (-36) and Argentina (-28) are both in negative figures so will need to triumph by 101 or 93 points respectively to take the trophy.It’s fair to say New Zealand are the Tri-Nations champions in waiting.

Economic Justice Committee invests in Bank of Palestine

first_img Rector Hopkinsville, KY Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis March 24, 2013 at 5:40 pm I fear this “positive investment” will largely become a symbolic gesture that isn’t likely to benefit the Palestinians in the spirit with which it was given. Were the Palestinian government a fledgling entity recognized by the world community as well as the government of Israel, this kind of investment would do wonders. Sadly the reality of occupation and colonization severely limits what this kind of ‘investment’ can truly accomplish. What good is a bank when the Palestinians are running out of land? How does this help them regain their property? March 22, 2013 at 9:21 am While it is good to see The Episcopal Church acting on Church policy on Palestine/Israel, I fear that the investment won’t mean much down the road. The Palestinian economy is shackled by the Israeli Occupation of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem – held to be a future State of Palestine. No amount of investment is going to help the economy until and unless the Occupation ends. That’s the lens through which I view actions taken: How does this help to end the Occupation? This investment does not meet that criterion. Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT March 28, 2013 at 3:35 pm This donation to a Palestinian bank is a valuable symbolic action. It manifests compassion for the suffering of the Palestinian people.The donation would also have positive, practical effect if the economic context into which these funds have been introduced were marked by freedom of movement for exchange of goods. This basic necessity for economic progress (or even for minimal economic activity) is not available for entrepreneurs and planners in the Occupied Territories — the West Bank and Gaza.We need to hear the voices of Palestinian entrepreneurs as they explain the facts governing their economic life — the many unpredictable and arbitrary restrictions which, via Israel’s well established policies, continually stifle attempts of Palestinian businesspersons to carry on manufacture and trade.A sample of these voices is available through a video at the following webpage: Ramy Abdeljabbar’s Palestine and World News ~ http://ramyabdeljabbar.wordpress.com/2013 /03/25/embroidery-makers-of-gaza-2/; or at Common Dreams News Centeer ~ http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/03/24-5.Here Kokab Al-Qudssi, a businesswoman in Gaza, identifies her problem not as limited funds but as artificial restrictions forcibly imposed by an Israeli government — restrictions that block her from importing to her workshop tools and raw materials for sewing and embroidering the blouses, caps, scarves and bags that she attempts – unsuccessfully under Israel’s restrictions – to export to the West Bank or beyond.According to Sari Bashi, Executive Director of the Gisha Legal Center for Freedom of Movement, an Israeli humanitarian center in Tel Aviv: “The problem in Gaza is not a shortage of food but rather a violation of the right to productive, dignified work,”In 2011, according to the Palestinian Federation of Industries, 83 percent of Gaza factories were closed or working at a capacity of 50% or less. Although the 2005 Agreement on Movement and Access premits 400 trucks per day to carry goods from Palestine factories and workshops, only two trucks per day were allowed to leave during the winter farming season of 2011. Between May 12 and June 30, Gisha reported, “not a single truck [was] allowed to leave Gaza.”(The Jerusalem Post, 30 June 2011 ~ http://www.jpost.com/Diplomacy-and-Politics/Don t-bring-food-into-Gaza-take-it-out.)Can our donated funds really ease these restrictions, which originate in official chambers of the State of Israel and in its military bases?Economic activities in the West Bank and Gaza occur only under Israeli military rule. Decisions regarding import and export activities are made from the headquarters of an Israel Defense Force officer — the “Coordinator of Government Activity in the Territories” (i.e., the Occupied Territories) (acronym: COGAT). This “Government Activity” consists of regulating the lives of Palestinians in various ways. Along with all other phases of life, economic activity is subject to the changeable will of IDF officers headquartered throughout the territory.(“Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories,” https://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/Coordinator_of_Government_Activities_in_the_Territories.)Stretching across the West Bank, COGAT has bases in the cities of Jenin, Nablus, Tulkarm, Qalqilyah, Ramallah, Jerusalem Periphery, Bethlehem, Hebron, and Jericho. Aside from these outposts, COGAT has its distinct Economics Branch, headed by a Lieutenant-Colonel.The Israeli military is in charge of all types of security for 82% of the West Bank (i.e., Areas B and C, where 45% of West-Bank Palestinians lilve). The Palestinian National Authority has charge of 18% (Area A, containing 55% of all West-Bank Palestinians).In the Gaza Strip, although Israel is said to have “withdrawn” from this area, economic and other activities of Palestinians are controlled by an Israeli military entity called Coordination and Liaison Administration of the Gaza Strip (COLA), headed by an IDF Colonel. (“West Bank” ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/West_Bank#cite_note-UNGeneva_Convention-13.)Major General Eitan Dangot, the COGAT officier, said that Israel controls commodities proposed by the Palestinian National Authority for entrance into Gaza based on “security considerations.” Rocket-fire into Israel, General Dangot noted, has continued: “What we are dealing with in Gaza is a terrorist regime,” he said. (Jerusalem Post, “Don’t bring food into Gaza – take it out,’” http://www.jpost.com/Diplomacy-and-Politics/Dont-bring-food-into-Gaza-take-it-out)Import and export restrictions cannot, of course, be an effective response to Hamas’ illegal attacks on Israeli villas in Sderot. Kokab Al-Qudssi’s embroidered blouses, caps, scarves and bags — along with goods from other entrepreneurs still awaiting export from Gaza – will not diminish the frequency of Hamas’ rocket fire. Restrictions on Gazan businesspersons, who have not fired any rockets, constitute collective punishment. Under the Geneva Conventions of 1949, collective punishment is a war crime.More detailed information for understanding the economic plight of the Palestinian people can be found in a report from PALTRADE (Palestine Trade Center) entitled “Investment in Palestine: The Reality” (October 2010). Authors of this document find that the major hindrance to economic development in Palestine cannot be lifted by foreign investment: “The uncertainty and lack of a political horizon created by the Israeli closure regime are hindering the potential of any future investments. The combined effect of the closure regime in the West Bank, the restrictions on the access and movement of investors, and the constricted trade between West Bank and Gaza have resulted in substantial increase in transaction costs, lowered the competitiveness of Palestinian products, and created a very poor investment climate in Palestine”If the Episcopal Church seeks to support and enhance the Palestinian economy — actually to aid Palestinian entrepreneurs in the manufacture and distribution of their goods and services — then decisions must be based on a clear understanding of the economic context in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Unless we accompany that, however, with a demand that our government hold Israel accountable for human rights violations and its continuing takeover of the West Bank and East Jerusalem, it will mean little. We would do well to remember words just spoken by President Obama to Israeli young people: “As a politician, I can promise you this: political leaders will not take risks if the people do not demand that they do. You must create the change that you want to see.”Take special note of that word, “demand”.

At year-end 2012, the investments consisted of $3.6 million in deposits at credit unions and similar intermediaries; and $2.1 million in loans to community development intermediaries made through the Economic Justice Community Development Loan Fund.“Interest earned from these investments is typically below market rates, though an effort is made to achieve rates above the inflation rate in order to safeguard the principal available for future loans,” explained N. Kurt Barnes, Episcopal Church treasurer. “The interest earned in this program flows to the DFMS operating budget.”In preparation for the purchase, the Episcopal Church Finance Office worked with several organizations, including the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation, to identify business opportunities in Palestine. The EJLC concluded that an investment in the Bank of Palestine  made the most sense.  Barnes continued, “The primary mid-size to large businesses in Palestine are banking services, IT and Call Centers, hospitality and tourism.  The banking sector offers liquidity; and as the leading bank in Palestine, the Bank of Palestine is a logical candidate, which in turn will get the money out to community development activities within Palestine.”Barnes, who met with senior management of the Bank of Palestine, noted that the bank:• Has well-developed corporate-governance and risk-management structures based on best practices generally seen in North America;• Makes nearly 20% of its $720 million loan portfolio available to micro and small businesses (SMEs) employing over 10,000 Palestinians;• Has a green loans program, which encourages water wells, wastewater management and alternative energy sources in order to reduce reliance on often unstable Israeli-sourced energy; and• Contributes 5% of its net profit each year to Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives.Bishop Stacy Sauls, Episcopal Church Chief Operating Officer, commented, “One of the ways we seek to serve at the churchwide level is to make it easy for the Church at the local level, dioceses and congregations, to act on our common convictions. Several dioceses have already approached us about helping them take similar action. Co-investing with us pools resources for good and allows smaller units of the Church to take advantage of the work done on their behalf and access services and opportunities that might not otherwise be available to them.  That’s what the churchwide level exists to do.”Lindsey Parker, of the Diocese of Massachusetts and chair of the EJLC, noted, “We are pleased to receive the Bank’s assurance that the deposit will be directed to SMEs; the Bank’s Green Loans Program; or the soon-to-be introduced SME loans for women.” Rector Belleville, IL Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Associate Rector Columbus, GA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Curate Diocese of Nebraska Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Submit an Event Listing Rector Bath, NC last_img read more

Cuba reminded of goals of Non-aligned Movement as it takes over presidency and hosts summit

first_img Cuba and its Decree Law 370: annihilating freedom of expression on the Internet CubaAmericas Organisation New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders said today that it hoped UN Secretary General Kofi Annan will remind Cuba of the goals of the Non-aligned Movement in relation to human rights and fundamental liberties as the country took over the Movement’s three-year rotating presidency and began hosting its five-day summit.Fifty heads of state and government, 3,000 delegates from 116 member countries (soon to be 118 with the forthcoming membership of Haiti and St. Kitts and Nevis) and representatives of several observers countries, such as China are expected in Havana for the movement’s 14th summit from 11-16 September, in the presence of the UN Secretary General.The worldwide press freedom organisation said it was determined to point out that several heads of state who hold press freedom and pluralism in contempt, such as Iran’s, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Pakistan’s Pervez Musharraf and Vietnam’s Nguyen Minh Triet, will be greeted in the Cuban capital by another predator of free expression in the person of Fidel Castro.“This summit should not be used as a screen for governments for whom the imbalance between North and South justifies dictatorship, oppression and the absence of a state of law”, said the organisation, stressing that, “The protection and promotion of human rights are among the objectives in the draft final document which will be submitted to member countries for approval during the summit.”“The Ministers reaffirmed the significant importance attached by the Movement to the promotion and protection of human rights and commitment to fulfil obligations to promote universal respect for, and observance and protection of, all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all in accordance to the UN Charter, other instruments relating to human rights as appropriate and international law”, says paragraph 193-1, ratified on 30 May 2006 in Putrajaya, Malaysia. We can unfortunately expect that countries such as Iran, Uzbekistan, Zimbabwe, Libya and Belarus will sign a promise that they have no intention of honouring, not forgetting Cuba, which as president of the Movement, is supposed to see that it is respected. References to the UN Charter and International laws with which these countries adorn themselves, logically obliges them vis-à-vis the UN and the international community. We hope that the Secretary General Kofi Annan will remind them of this. The Cuban authorities have already shown signs of bad faith on the eve of the summit, of which it is doing its utmost to limit coverage, by expelling foreign journalists. Cuba is the second biggest prison in the world for journalists, after China, with 23 journalists behind bars.The Non-aligned Movement was founded in Belgrade in September 1961 under the auspices of Yugoslav President Marshal Tito, whose objective at the time was to gather countries refusing to take either the US or Soviet side in the cold war. As Havana hosts the 14th summit of the Non-aligned Movement from 11-16 September, Reporters Without Borders points out that most countries which it lists as ‘predators of press freedom’ are members of the Movement, which however promotes respect for human rights and fundamental liberties.
