Saracens put plenty of width on the ball, especially in the first half, but they couldn’t get across the line. If they work on their finishing in the off-season, they should have the impressive ability to play both a pragmatic and attacking style in the next campaign.Near miss: David Strettle lost control of the ball when he crossed the line in the first halfIn quotesLeicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill: “Saracens are a very good team and they had people missing through injury, as did we, but today was our turn to win. I’m delighted for the guys. It’s been a hard season, now we’ve got to go and try to win the thing.”Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall: “We wanted to spend as much time as we could in their half but we couldn’t score whereas they took their chances. We’re very proud of a lot of things – to be two points behind Quins in the final table and the last English team in the Heineken Cup.”Top statLeicester have now won their last 12 semi-finals in all competitions.LEICESTER: Geordan Murphy (capt); Horacio Agulla, Manu Tuilagi, Anthony Allen, Alesana Tuilagi; George Ford, Ben Youngs; Marcos Ayerza, George Chuter, Dan Cole (Martin Castrogiovanni 60), George Skivington, Geoff Parling, Steve Mafi, Julian Salvi, Thomas Waldrom.Tries: A Tuilagi, Mafi.

Break time: George Ford evades the clutches of Charlie Hodgson to set up Leicester’s second tryBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorIn a nutshellLeicester reached their eighth straight Premiership final with a hard-fought win over defending champions Saracens. As you would expect when these two teams go head-to-head, it was a ferociously physical contest, but it was Leicester’s guile rather than their brawn that produced two decisive tries – Alesana Tuilagi and Steve Mafi crossing the line.Key momentIn the 47th minute, George Ford produced a scything break through the Sarries defence – his second of the game as he demonstrated huge potential – and that set Manu Tuilagi off towards the line. He was brought down 5m short but Leicester recycled, spread the ball wide and Mafi crossed in the corner to give the Tigers an 18-12 lead that they never let slip.Nice work: Alesana Tuilagi celebrates his tryStar manFord’s talent was clear to all with his ability to control the game at just 19 years of age while also producing some class touches and breaks, but he did make a few mistakes. Marcos Ayerza was the standout performer for me. Not only did he give Leicester a solid platform up front in the scrum but he was an ever-present in defence, putting in a couple of massive hits.Room for improvementBoth teams gave away a lot of penalties and Leicester will need to be more disciplined when they face Harlequins in the final as Nick Evans will punish any misdemeanours, just as Owen Farrell did here.Leicester’s lineout creaked during the game so they will need to work on that, too, over the next two weeks. Quality first-phase ball will be needed at Twickenham. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS read more
They are using 2019 rankings to decide the seeds Organisers have anounced that the draw for Rugby World Cup 2023 in France will take place in Paris on 14 December. Three years out from the event, they will use seedings based on the world rankings immediately after last year’s tournament, rather than the current standing, due to the impact of Covid-19.The rankings for the draw mean that South Africa, New Zealand, England and Wales are the top band. Ireland, Australia, France, and Japan are in Band Two, with Scotland, Argentina, Fiji and Italy in Band Three. Bands Four and Five consist of qualifiers.It is a relief for Wales who had slipped to sixth in the current World Rankings, but are back up to fourth for the draw – meaning they are a top seed. Scotland, meanwhile, have dropped back to ninth for the draw, despite being eighth in the current list – they are in the third seeding, while Japan (ranked ninth in the world right now) are a second seed.With three years to go still, World Rugby say they have recognised the potential for major swings in form and personnel over such a long period, and their Board have now recommended that the draw for future tournaments should take place no earlier than one year before the event.

World Rugby stated: “Acknowledging the global Covid-19 impact on international rugby in 2020, with some teams not playing this year, and to be fair to all qualified teams, the Rugby World Cup board has decided that the World Rugby rankings as of January 1, 2020, will be used to determine the five bands. This represents the fairest scenario given it was the last time that all teams were able to play.”World Rugby chairman Bill Beaumont also said: “Covid-19 means that, in the interests of fairness for all qualified teams, we have needed to draw a line under the rankings at the beginning of the year, everyone should appreciate that this is a unique time, we can’t delay, and we must continue to accelerate planning for what is going to be a truly spectacular and special Rugby World Cup 2023 in France.” read more

Photo: Colin Mathewson[Episcopal News Service] An Episcopal congregation in California is rallying behind the family of a Congolese asylum-seeker as he fights to stay in the United States.Constantin Bakala, 48, who is being held in federal detention, also longs to be reunited with his wife and seven children in San Diego, where the family has been welcomed into the congregation at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. Some of the children, ages 6 to 17, have begun serving as acolytes and singing in the choir, the Rev. Colin Mathewson, the vicar, told Episcopal News Service.“It’s just been a transformative experience,” Mathewson said, for him and his congregation.The congregation, which he co-pastors with his wife, the Rev. Laurel Mathewson, is a mix of native-born Americans, Sudanese immigrant families and newer Congolese refugees. They rejoiced last week when Bakala won a stay of deportation while federal officials consider a request to reopen his asylum case, but he still could be sent back to Congo, where he fears he will be killed. Press Release Service Featured Events Rector Martinsville, VA By David PaulsenPosted Mar 8, 2019 Director of Music Morristown, NJ Submit a Press Release Bakala’s supporters at St. Luke’s aren’t giving up on him.“It really feels like a moment that God has invited us into, that we can say ‘no’ to or ‘yes’ to,” Mathewson said. “We said ‘yes,’ and it’s really changed us.”Bakala was aligned with an opposition political party in the Democratic Republic of Congo and fled with his family to escape the threat of persecution, Mathewson said. The family flew to Brazil and began making their way to San Diego, at one point nearly drowning in a boat off the coast of Nicaragua.Constantin Bakala. Photo courtesy of Colin MathewsonThey arrived in Tijuana, Mexico, in November 2017 and requested asylum at the United States border, as prescribed by U.S. law. Bakala’s wife, Annie Bwetu Kapongo, was required to wear an ankle monitor so she could be released with her children while their cases are pending, but Bakala was separated from them and detained. Mathewson said Bakala represented himself in his asylum hearings, and the court rejected his asylum request and set him on the path to deportation.He has spent the past 15 months behind bars at a series of detention facilities, including in Georgia and Virginia, unable to see his family.“Constantin’s heartbreaking case is one example of the extreme difficulties asylum-seekers face in the U.S.,” said Lacy Broemel of the Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations, which advised Mathewson on raising awareness of Bakala’s case. “Family separation, lack of legal support and detention are all too common when it comes to the experiences of those who are applying for asylum protections.“In the Office of Government Relations, we advocate to the U.S. government to keep families together, increase access to legal representation, and for alternatives to detention, and we urge the church to advocate for those systematic changes as well.”Such issues weren’t on the radar of the congregation of St. Luke’s when the Mathewsons first learned about Bakala’s plight. Their Congolese parishioners primarily are refugees, not asylum-seekers, who had immigrated from a camp in Tanzania and speak a different tribal language from the one spoken by the Bakalas.A bit of chance brought the Bakalas to St. Luke’s. One member of the congregation teaches English-as-a-second-language classes for refugees, and one of his students accepted an invitation to attend worship services at St. Luke’s, which typically draw about 125 people on Sundays. That woman knew Kapongo, Bakala’s wife, through a mutual babysitter and invited her to St. Luke’s as well, in July 2018.In conversation with the family, the Mathewsons soon learned about Bakala’s deportation case, and within a week, they were able to find an attorney willing to represent Bakala pro bono.“In a lot of ways, it was legally too late,” Colin Mathewson said, because the court already had ruled against Bakala’s asylum request. His remaining hope is to submit new evidence on appeal. Bakala fears for his life, Mathewson said, “but the hard part is you have to prove it.”Hope was running out last month with a deadline looming for his deportation. On Feb. 22, Bakala was granted an emergency stay of deportation, but only for one week, buying his attorney time to press for a longer stay.At the same time, St. Luke’s was mobilizing an awareness campaign that caught the attention of local media, which featured Bakala’s case in several news reports. Hundreds of people signed a petition opposing Bakala’s deportation, and the congregation raised about $5,000 to support his family.Then, on March 1, the family received the good news. The U.S. Justice Department’s Board of Immigration Appeals granted another stay. It doesn’t save Bakala from deportation, Mathewson said, but he will remain in the United States at least another few months while the motion to reopen his case is reviewed.Kapongo expressed gratitude last week to everyone who has stepped forward to help her family while her husband is in detention.“I feel at ease when I see you helping and supporting me,” she said in French at a demonstration at the federal building in San Diego, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. “Without them, I would still be sad at the house.” She and her children are due at a hearing in September on their requests for asylum.

It’s about to get even bigger.The CEEP Network typically gathers hundreds of attendees in a U.S. city for its annual conference, but because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was forced to move online to present this year’s conference workshops and keynote presentations on March 2-5, which will include a conversation between Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. Last year, more than 700 people traveled to Louisville, Kentucky, to attend in person. This year, more than 1,200 people are signed up to participate online.The groundswell of interest in the online conference underscores the CEEP Network’s shift in recent years from providing a one-stop networking opportunity for clergy and lay leaders from well-resourced parishes to imparting information and guidance to all Episcopal leaders year-round through online webinars and ministry groups.“Our intention was to become a network with a conference, as opposed to a conference with a network,” Joe Swimmer, CEEP’s executive director, told Episcopal News Service by phone late last week as his team was making final preparations for the online conference.Expanding the organization’s focus beyond the annual conference has been a top priority since Swimmer took the reins in 2018, and during the pandemic, the time was right to double-down on digital offerings. In the past year, the CEEP Network has offered more than 70 webinars on topics ranging from stewardship to parish administration to theology, with registration open to members and nonmembers alike.“We really are about strengthening leaders for a changed and changing church,” Swimmer said. “We’re proud to be there to support our lay and clergy leaders.”CEEP was founded in 1985 by a group of Episcopal parishes with sizable endowments, as was reflected in its original name: the Consortium of Endowed Episcopal Parishes. Initially, only parishes with endowments were permitted to become members, to enable leaders from those congregations to share ideas with peers who were facing similar challenges and opportunities in developing their ministries.Now, the network has updated its membership criteria to allow a wider range of congregations supported by different types of resources, such as land, buildings and active congregants, not just endowments. The network still goes by the acronym CEEP, but it no longer refers to itself as the Consortium of Endowed Episcopal Parishes. More than 200 parishes, cathedrals and other Episcopal institutions make up the network’s membership.“What we want to do is harness the best things from within and beyond the church,” Swimmer said. “What we offer is that chance to be in connection with other similar-situationed parishes across the country and, in fact, around the world.”The CEEP Network’s annual conference is not The Episcopal Church’s biggest gathering overall. That distinction goes to General Convention, the triennial meeting of the church’s governing body, which draws thousands of bishops, deputies, church staff and exhibitors.But as an annual event that is celebrating its 36th gathering, CEEP is not matched by any other Episcopal conference, Swimmer said.A crowd gathers Feb. 20 for a session at the annual gathering of the Consortium of Endowed Episcopal Parishes in Louisville, Kentucky. Photo: CEEP, via FacebookLast year’s conference, Feb. 19-22, was held in Louisville just as coronavirus cases were beginning to rise in the United States. After the conference, several attendees tested positive for COVID-19. Days later, on March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the global outbreaks a pandemic.The pandemic forced suspension of in-person worship across The Episcopal Church and spurred many Episcopal congregations to adopt technological solutions to reach their parishioners, who suddenly could only gather safely online. Those constraints also prompted a rapid transformation at the CEEP Network, which before the pandemic had been looking to bolster its online presence.“Really the pandemic put us in the position of, we know it’s the time to start this,” Swimmer said.CEEP held its first digital workshop last year on March 18 to discuss congregations’ responses to the pandemic. The Zoom webinar’s panel featured three rectors: the Rev. Russell Levenson Jr. of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas; the Rev. Noelle York-Simmons of Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia; and the Rev. Doyt Conn Jr. of Epiphany Episcopal Church in Seattle, Washington. It was moderated by the Rev. Matt Heyd, rector of the Church of the Heavenly Rest in New York. Eleanor Bergquist, a public health expert, joined from St. Louis, Missouri.“Christians are the best when the times are [the] worst,” Conn said during the webinar. “I think about Epiphany as a first responder. We are a first responder for the human soul.”Clockwise from top left, the Rev. Matt Heyd of Church of the Heavenly Rest in New York was joined March 18 by the Rev. Russell Levenson Jr. of St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas; Eleanor Bergquist, former epidemiology manager for the St. Louis, Missouri, Department of Public Health; the Rev. Doyt Conn Jr. of Epiphany Episcopal Church in Seattle, Washington; and the Rev. Noelle York-Simmons of Christ Church in Alexandria, Virginia, for an hourlong webinar on the coronavirus.CEEP continued to offer such webinars throughout the pandemic, and nearly a year later, the network has logged about 12,000 cumulative participants, Swimmer told ENS. “It’s been really gratifying.”The most popular online workshop was a session on the challenges of congregational singing during the pandemic, led by a British expert. More than 500 people participated, and Swimmer said he was impressed by the diversity of attendees, including many nonmembers.“You saw in the list of names people from parishes that would never think to be part of the CEEP Network,” he said.The CEEP Network also has invited member institutions to “dive deeper” into areas of importance to specific groups of congregational leaders. A group of young rectors began connecting online, as one example. In another group, about 50 parish administrators meet virtually every few weeks.Such efforts to grow the organization’s digital reach are culminating this week in the annual conference. The festivities begin March 2 with an online gathering for female clergy, followed by additional pre-conference sessions in the morning March 3. Then in the afternoon, the full conference gets underway with a keynote conversation featuring Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation.Several workshops are planned in each of the conference’s five topic areas: church financial models, church buildings as community resources, racial reckoning, strategic planning and leadership lessons.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry poses for a photo with Joe Swimmer, executive director of the CEEP Network, during a January 2020 meeting. Photo: CEEP Network, via FacebookThe March 4 keynote will be a conversation between two Church of England priests, the Rev. Sam Wells and the Rev. Azariah France-Williams. On March 5, Curry will be joined in the afternoon by Catherine Meeks, executive director of the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing in the Diocese of Atlanta. That conversation will be followed by Curry’s concluding keynote session with Welby.All events will be held on Zoom for participants who registered in advance. Although it is too late to register, the CEEP Network plans to post videos of the workshops and keynote sessions online after the conference is over. Anyone interested in receiving updates on future CEEP webinars is encouraged to email [email protected]“It’s been a challenging year for everybody, and it’s been great to see how the church has responded universally,” Swimmer said. He is looking forward to the conversations at this year’s online conference, though he also will be happy to resume in-person gatherings when CEEP holds its 2022 conference at All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Atlanta, Georgia.And like many Episcopal congregations that are making plans to resume in-person worship while maintaining online options for parishioners, CEEP intends to organize future conferences as hybrids, with participants still able to attend online if they choose.“That’s just the way the world is these days,” Swimmer said. This year’s online conference “is giving us a good testing ground for how we do that and how we do it successfully.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

How Farmers Really Use Big Data SHARE By Gary Truitt – Nov 30, 2014 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News How Farmers Really Use Big Data How Farmers Really Use Big DataThe next generation of farmers is optimistic about the future of agriculture and sees big data as a vital part of that future. Zach and Cole Bailey, Bailey Family Farm, Iola, IL are brothers who have taken over the family farm started in the 60s by their grandfather. They currently farm about 10,000 acres of corn, soybeans, and wheat. Cole says the new data services available today are something they are excited to integrate into their operation, “We have always had this data, but didn’t have a way to use it well. With systems like FARMserver from Beck’s, we have years of planting and yield data at our fingertips, and we can use it to make better decisions.” He added that data management is going to be huge in helping them to take their operation to the next level.Zach says, like many farmers, they are very concerned about the privacy of their data and how the data they share will be used, “It is sort of like the coffee shop where you didn’t want the guy next to you to hear what you were doing.” He said it is important to trust the people you are working with, “That is what we like about the Beck’s company, there is that trust and the ability to control our data.”Both brothers feel this is a very exciting time to be in agriculture, and Zach believes it is time for the next generation to step up and lead the way, “We as youth are going to have to step up and step into this industry and take it over. It is going to take the next generation to make it work.” They admitted farming is never going to be easy, but the challenge is out there to master technology to increase production and feed the world of the future.Check out the video interview with the Bailey boys: Previous articleSoybean Farmers Continue Producing Quality ProductNext articleThey Just Don’t Get It Gary Truitt read more
By Hoosier Ag Today – Jun 3, 2018 Home Indiana Agriculture News Peterson: New Farm Bill Must Protect Against Trade Retaliation Previous articleNew Poll: Consumers Agree that E15 Barrier is ‘Unnecessary’ and ‘Ridiculous’Next articleOfficials from Mexico and Canada Discuss Importance of NAFTA Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter SHARE House Ag Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson says that American tariffs on steel and aluminum imports will generate retaliation that will hit farm exports hard. As a result, he’ll be working with House and Senate Ag Committee leaders on a new farm bill to protect farmers from “the market fluctuations caused by these actions.” A USDA spokesman says President Trump “will not allow American agriculture to bear the brunt of retaliatory tactics.” However, in an email to the Hagstrom Report, Peterson says, “That the administration has decided to move forward with these wrongheaded tariffs, even though farmers have repeatedly warned about retaliation from trade partners, shows that the administration isn’t listening or just doesn’t care.”Instead of a farm bill focused on welfare reform, Peterson says he looks forward to working with leadership to craft a bill that protects farmers from the market fluctuations caused by these tariffs. The legislation should also invest in trade promotion to help them rebuild lost markets. The USDA spokesman says the agency is continuing to work to expand existing markets and to come up with new ones for American agricultural products.Many ag groups are expressing their concern over the tariffs, including the National Pork Producers Council. Those concerns arise as Mexico, a key pork export market, has already threatened to retaliate against pork imports. U.S. pork shipped $1.5 billion worth of product to Mexico, and another $792 million to Canada, its fourth-largest market. U.S. Meat Export Federation President and CEO Dan Halstrom says it’s unfortunate if U.S. pork exports to Mexico, which deliver tremendous benefits to both the U.S. supply chain and Mexican consumers, importers, and restaurants, no longer enjoy duty-free access to this critical market. “It’s especially frustrating to see U.S. pork caught up in a trade dispute that has absolutely nothing to do with the pork trade,” Halstrom says.The National Farmers Union says, while they agree with President Trump’s inclination to address unfair trading practices and reduce our trade deficit, provoking a global trade war with our closest allies hardly seems like a solution. NFU President Roger Johnson says, “These on-again, off-again tariffs will likely result in the opposite of their intended effect. Agriculture is always the first casualty in retaliatory tariffs.” SHARE Facebook Twitter Peterson: New Farm Bill Must Protect Against Trade Retaliation read more
