Should the Six Nations introduce relegation?

first_img Should the Six Nations introduce relegation?BERNARD JACKMANYES, says the former Ireland hooker and now RTÉ analystWhy should the team that finishes bottom of the Guinness Six Nations be guaranteed re-entry to the competition the following year? Money and stability are nice but I don’t see the current situation as being healthy for the competition.Or for Italy, who have become perennial wooden spooners. They haven’t won a game in the tournament since beating Scotland in 2015 and it now seems a foregone conclusion that their opponent will win with an attacking bonus point.Despite hope that Benetton would become a competitive team in the Pro14, that proved a false dawn and both Italian franchises will be in the Challenge Cup again next season.Italian franchises Benetton and Zebre have seldom made a serious impression in the Pro14 (Inpho)I believe the bottom team in the Six Nations should face a play-off against the winner of the Rugby Europe Championship. I’m open to the Six Nations team playing only one leg, at home, but there should be the carrot for every country in Europe to play on the top stage.I know from having coached at the Dragons the effect of having a losing record year on year. It can destroy the morale and self-confidence of players and the team environment.The Gallagher Premiership and the Top 14 have relegation and clubs like Harlequins, Northampton, Bayonne and Lyon have bounced back from the drop, arguably stronger.A season spent winning can galvanise a team and make them more competitive when they bounce back. It shouldn’t be the end of their journey, as some people suggest.Also, teams lower down have an opportunity to develop and grow – that would be good for rugby across Europe rather than just the traditional countries.Before 2000, Italy earned the right to enter the Six Nations but I feel that 21 years is a sufficient period to adapt and develop. Ringfencing hasn’t made the competition stronger so I would advocate a promotion/relegation play-off. BARNEY PARRNO, says the London-based freelance writerOnce again rugby’s most tedious annual debate rears its ugly head. I don’t care much for the senseless bleating quite as much as I worry about the dangerous caveat it sets.This maelstrom of thought isn’t so much about the issue of relegation as it is the ‘Italian question’, accentuating their seemingly eternal quest to find a competitive edge in the competition. I’d put it like this: would rugby fans accept England, France, Ireland, Scotland or Wales not playing at the pinnacle of European competition?Although not a simple conundrum to solve, I’m all for the likes of Georgia, a team central to the debate, being given a chance in an expanded tournament, not one threatening relegation.Georgia, here carrying v Romania, could play in an expanded Tier One competition, argues Parr (Getty)In a period where global development of rugby is begging for a wider appeal, is it necessary to prop up one team at the expense of another? Expansion of the game must rely on a team’s aspiration to climb and stay on the ladder, rather than the constant threat of falling off.Despite dominating European rugby’s second-tier tournament, Georgia have failed to show any inkling that they would provide more stable and competitive opposition. World Rugby rankings fail to tell the full tale here.Italy joined the competition 117 years late. It’s time to stop maligning this growing team with the constant threat of the ‘R’ word and give them (and potential new friends) the space and time needed to flourish. Johan Meyer and Paolo Garbisi ponder how to stop the rot for the Azzurri (Insidefoto/LightRocket/Getty)Should the Six Nations introduce relegation? We want to know what YOU think. Email your views to [email protected] debate first appeared in the May 2021 issue of Rugby World. Winless Italy had a points difference of minus 184 during this year’s Six Nations Championship (Inpho) After 32 successive Six Nations defeats, Italy’s place in the tournament has never been more precarious.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Submit a Press Release [Anglican Taonga] New Zealand’s Anglican community has chosen the Rt. Rev. Philip Richardson, bishop of Taranaki, as its new archbishop.He was confirmed as archbishop-elect in Wellington March 22 at a meeting of representatives of the country’s seven Tikanga Pakeha dioceses.From May 1, Richardson, 55, will become one of three archbishops leading the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia. He will continue as bishop of Taranaki, and carry on his dual role from his New Plymouth base.Richardson has assembled an impressive record of work across the community in the 14 years he has been bishop in Taranaki, and achieved real credibility with regional and civic leaders, according to a news article from Anglican Taonga.“I have the highest regard for him,” says Harry Duynhoven, mayor of New Plymouth. “Philip has done a huge job for the Anglican Church in our region – and for our community as well.”Peter Tennent – who was Harry Duynhoven’s predecessor as mayor – is equally affirming of Richardson’s role in the wider Taranaki community. “He is a visionary, and a number of projects, big and small, are directly attributable to his leadership,” he said. “The Bishop’s Action Foundation, for example, has become a formidable organisation driving positive change here. I join all from Taranaki in congratulating Philip – the church and this country are in very good hands.”Beverley Lady Reeves, widow of Bishop Paul Reeves, is another who holds Richardson in high regard. “And I know my husband did as well, as he demonstrated abundantly at the end of his life,” she said.She and her husband had spent a week in New Plymouth in March 2010 as “Philip involved the whole city in the preparations for St. Mary’s church becoming a cathedral.”That consecration took place 150 years after the beginning of the Land Wars in Taranaki, and Lady Reeves notes how Richardson has encouraged her husband’s Te Atiawa people “to rediscover St. Mary’s as a place of worship.”There’s been acclamation too, from further afield – from Archbishop of York John Sentamu, who had first met Richardson during his visit to Taranaki to consecrate St. Mary’s as a cathedral.Sentamu says that he had been moved during his visit by the hongi “in which the breath of life from God is shared, and our common humanity is affirmed.”“Bishop Philip’s ministry is built on this same understanding, that we are all equally valued and loved in the eyes of God,” he added. “When my wife Margaret and I heard the news, we burst into a waiata: He Honore, He Kororia, (All honor and glory to God)”The new archbishop’s prioritiesRichardson says his top priorities as archbishop will be helping the church to work together for the common good, to advocate for people on the margins, and to help the church to “deepen its discipleship” – in other words, to live out its faith.“The church,” he says, “really does exist for those who are outside itself. We’re not a club. We are people who are committed to building communities which are healthy. Lifegiving, just communities where everyone has a place, where every individual has the ability to live full and meaningful lives.“The church is really committed to that. We are committed to the common good. So a really high priority for me is to work in whatever way I can to enhance our ability to work together as a church to contribute to that common good.”Richardson was elected bishop of Taranaki in 1999, and since then he has developed a reputation for driving new ideas and new developments.One of those innovations has been launching and driving the Bishop’s Action Foundation – a trust which, from a standing start in 2005, has grown into a body with a NZ$1 million (US$840,000) annual budget and a staff of nine who work “to tackle unmet needs in Taranaki” through building the capacity of volunteer and community groups.Richardson says the challenge now is to translate that kind of regional contribution onto a national stage.Doing that, he says, will depend first on the church’s ability to build relationships.“In Taranaki, we’ve worked hard to build relationships across all sectors: political; industrial; business; educational; local government and the community sector.”At a national level, he says the church has already established “some credible relationships across the political spectrum” – and those relationships have to be developed further.“The second thing we need to do is build credibility. Credibility is based on what we do . We are not saved by good works. But what we do describes God’s love and God’s grace. And people are looking for a credible example, an outworking of what Christian love in practice looks like.”And the third requirement, he says, is for the church to become engaged “at the point of greatest need.“We’ve always got to engage where we can make the most difference; where there is the greatest need.”Richardson says he’s “a passionate believer in really good quality research” – and he thinks the church has a unique ability to tap into that quality research.“We’re on the ground in every community,” he says, “in a way that few other organizations are. Just look at any analysis of volunteer or community work, and look at how many of the people serving their community have a faith base. They’re a disproportionately larger figure than our size as churches would lead you to expect. That gives us an extraordinary resource – of raw data of what’s actually happening.“So if we really want to be able to have our voice heard – and it’s a very distinctive voice – and we want to speak Gospel values into decision making, and into the kind of choices as a society that we have to make, then we really have to do that in a very well articulated and informed way.”Richardson says that the church’s ability to contribute to the life of the nation will depend, above all, on “deepening its discipleship.”“I love the image of the disciple being the one who follows so closely in the footsteps of the rabbi that the dust from rabbi’s sandals is flicked up over the disciple.“Conforming ourselves day by day to the way of Jesus and to the person of Jesus is the hardest but most important challenge Christians face – because I think that is where our authenticity comes from, and that is where our ability to speak into our community comes from.”Richardson will succeed Archbishop David Moxon, who is heading to Rome to become the Anglican Communion’s chief ambassador to the Roman Catholic Church – and he will be installed as Archbishop in May, at a time and a place to be confirmed.As archbishop, he will work alongside Archbishop Brown Turei, who leads Tikanga Maori (the Maori cultural stream of the church) and Archbishop Winston Halapua, who is the bishop of Polynesia.Richardson and his wife Belinda Holmes will remain in their New Plymouth home. They have two adult children, Josh and Clare.Richardson was born in Devonport in 1958, and he went to Rangitoto College. He holds BA and BTh degrees from Otago, and has also studied at Tamil Nadu Theological Seminary in South India and at St John’s College in Auckland.He was ordained a priest in 1982, helped set up a community house and ministry in Glen Innes in 1981, before being sent in 1984 to the parish of Whangarei as an assistant priest.He was sent from there to Dunedin in 1988 for further theological study, and was appointed warden of Selwyn College at the University of Otago in 1992.During his seven years at Selwyn College he became increasingly involved in serving the Anglican Church at a provincial level, and in 1999, at the age of 40, he was elected as Bishop of Taranaki.

Charles Robertson was a comic book fan.“I learned how to read on comic books,” Robertson said. The first he remembers reading was “Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes,” a futuristic and optimistic fantasy in which the forces of good fight the forces of evil.Superhero conventions might not seem an obvious place to discuss Jesus and the Gospel, but fans of comic books and the Good Book will take center stage Sept. 29 as Virginia Theological Seminary hosts ΘeoCon – pronounced “theo-con,” for theological convention. Its tagline is “where theology meets pop culture,” and Robertson is on the list of presenters and panelists.The Rev. Charles Robertson, the presiding bishop’s canon for ministry beyond the Episcopal Church, is seen in a promotional graphic for ΘeoCon, in which he is participating on Sept. 29.“I jumped at this for a couple reasons,” Robertson said. “Pop culture is so much a part of our culture now, and yet I think that we in the church often are slow to engage with things that are current.” He also sees fertile theological ground in discussions of the myth-creation at the core of comic books and science fiction.Comic-cons have become big events across the country and big business, with the comic and film industry rolling out samples of their upcoming content for a hungry fan base.There’s the New York Comic-Con next month, with panelists including “Lord of the Rings” director Peter Jackson. San Diego Comic-Con is said to be the largest in the country and regularly features big-name Hollywood franchises. And this weekend’s Baltimore Comic-Con, which bills itself as “American’s Greatest Comic Book Convention,” coincides with the one-day ΘeoCon at the opposite end of the Washington, D.C., metro area.At Virginia Theological Seminary, in Alexandria, the fun kicks off at 9 a.m. Sept. 29. In addition to Robertson, participants will include the Rev. Judy Fentress-Williams, an Old Testament professor at the seminary; the Rev. Patricia Lyons, the Diocese of Washington’s missioner for evangelism and community engagement; and the Rev. Wesley Sun, an American Baptist Churches minister who produces graphic novels through Sun Bros Studios.“We are a collective of geeks, nerds, enthusiasts, clergy, laity and just plain downright awesome people who share the love of pop culture and the power of myth as seen in many sacred adventures,” the convention’s website explains. “ΘeoCon welcomes you to the place where theology and morality meet pop culture and where faith meets fiction.”The event was created by Shayna Watson, who earned her Master of Divinity from Lancaster Theological Seminary and an Anglican Studies diploma from Virginia Theological Seminary. She is now curate at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Cathedral in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.On the convention website, she calls pop culture “our common ground and language,” which offers opportunities to reach “populations of people whom the church misses.”“There are undeniable themes of theology and morality throughout pop culture,” she writes. “Good versus evil or the rise of the underdog are too often seen as secular themes rather than as part of God’s story.”Superman is a notable example: a boy from a dying planet is sent here to save our planet. “Star Wars” is another science fiction fable with parallels to the story of Christ, featuring a swashbuckling savior figure mastering the Force to defeat the Dark Side.Robertson said he was struck by a more recent example, a scene from the first “Avengers” movie from 2012, in which the hero asks if the stars and stripes on his Captain America uniform would be a little “old fashioned.”“With everything that’s happening, the things that are about to come to light, people might just need a little old fashioned,” replies the character Phil Coulson of the S.H.I.E.L.D. agency.Not everything “old” is praiseworthy, Robertson cautioned, but he thinks the Episcopal Church offers a connection to “something very profound that folks are looking for.”One thing he thinks people are seeking is “heroic” stories. “One time our kids knew the stories of Biblical heroes,” he said, and the “new myth-making” underway in sci-fi fiction and comics comes at a time when many people have grown cynical about our real-life leaders.At ΘeoCon, Robertson said, “I welcome the chance for us to be able to engage on how our faith and our ministry intersects with the revitalization of myth through comics.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

New Kyoto Town House 2 / Alphaville Architects

The current wooden house system based on bearing wall calculation hardly fits in with the ‘eel’s bed’ or the elongated housing lots typical of Kyoto, an old capital of Japan. While the width of lots has been segmentalized to provide minimal daylight, ventilation and access over a long period of time, the only option today of opening up the frontage is either steel structure or specialized wooden frame structure.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoThis project’s tiny site west of the Imperial Palace requires enhancement of spatial connection in terms of both plan and section. We therefore opted for the wood structure: integrated the structural body with partition walls, assigned the stairs that comprise the minimal surface element connecting different floor levels to be the bearing wall, and let the braces be a pair of tension members that traverse the building’s entire frame work from the first to the third floor. As these two braces also serve as columns supporting the beams at the end of each floor slab, their motion within the three dimensional space are reflected to the form of the slab.Save this picture!Floor PlanThese braces are also meaningful because they are one medium of inviting carpenters to the small-scale housing projects, a trial that is unusual in other similar residential projects. As for the low budget and convenience, most small-scale houses in Japan use locally pre-fabricated timber materials. However, this house’s 3-dimensional shapes and the use of unique braces required the craftmanship of Japanese carpenters. The architects are making an effort to merge traditional values of craftmanship and contemporary advantages of industrial technology here.Save this picture!© Kei SuginoFurthermore, this project’s main focus lies on the concept to integrate public and private space and furthermore 3-dimensional gradation of them within the house. Due to the elongated housing lot, most houses in this old urban fabric may feel isolated even though these lots are suitable for the privacy respect. One way to solve this issue is to preserve the maximum transparency of the interior space and structure to connect public area in the front and the private courtyard in the back. The partial slabs that do not block one’s view from front to back like usual whole-covered floor slabs successfully integrate public and private in this house.Save this picture!Axonometric StructureSave this picture!Long SectionSpace composed of just two brace columns, skipped floors and openings to south and north is a three dimensional development of the traditional wood structure consist of floors, pillars and openings to road and garden.

AFBF: Farmers Need More Time to Apply for CFAP

first_img AFBF: Farmers Need More Time to Apply for CFAP Facebook Twitter By American Farm Bureau Federation – Feb 24, 2021 SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News AFBF: Farmers Need More Time to Apply for CFAP The American Farm Bureau Federation is asking USDA to extend the deadline to apply for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program (CFAP). In January, an additional $13 billion in assistance was made available to help farmers and ranchers who are suffering losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The current deadline is this Friday, February 26, but recent severe weather and the suspension of CFAP payments led to challenges and confusion surrounding the application process.In a letter sent Wednesday to Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, AFBF President Zippy Duvall said, “The recent Regulatory Freeze Pending Review on all new and pending executive actions, though common during a change in Administration, has created confusion for farmers and ranchers with respect to eligibility and the application process for the Coronavirus Food Assistance Program – Additional Assistance. Although Farm Service Agency offices continued to accept applications during the regulatory freeze, some farmers may have interpreted the implementation suspension to mean that the program was being modified or potentially terminated.”The letter also notes severe weather, which impacted travel conditions and created broadband disruptions, may have also impacted farmers’ ability to complete the application process. AFBF is asking USDA to extend the deadline to apply for assistance by at least 30 days after the regulatory review is completed.Read the full letter.
