There were no bids for Allied Irish or Bank of Ireland senior debt, with liquidity in the market drying up.A tender would be among the least painful options for Irish bank bondholders. Another scheme being considered involves swapping bank debt into equity. Investors could also be given the choice of injecting fresh capital or face a cut in their investment, The Irish Times said.Whether senior bondholders are forced to take a hit is a hot topic after several European politicians said they should share the cost of the bailout.“Clearly things are coming to a head in Europe and there’s a debate, particularly in regard to the Irish banks, that bondholders may need to be subject to burden sharing,” said Mark Dowding, senior portfolio manager at Bluebay Asset Management in London.“In the first instance it may be offered as a debt swap. But if there’s not sufficient take up there may be more of an enforced effort,” Dowding said.However, such a dramatic move could further undermine confidence in banks in Portugal and Spain, by showing all investors are vulnerable. And it could make it tougher for Irish banks to fill a future funding gap estimated at about €160bn (£135bn).German Chancellor Angela Merkel has repeatedly said bondholders should share the pain when a country hits trouble, but only for bonds issued from as early as 2011.An €85bn rescue package is expected to be unveiled, possibly over the weekend, to cover Ireland’s funding costs and the cost of “overcapitalising” the banks.Ireland’s government has consistently said it will honour its obligations to senior bank bondholders, despite forcing a haircut on holders of subordinated debt in Anglo Irish and Irish Nationwide.But the main opposition party Fine Gael, which will likely lead a new government next year, has said all bondholders should share the burden of bailing out the banks. Bank of Ireland, which has boosted capital by €1.7bn from bond offers in the last two years, had about €31bn of senior debt and asset-backed securities at the end of June.AIB had €20bn of senior debt and Anglo has about €6.5bn of senior debt after maturities in September.

England: Five things we learned against NZ

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Rumbling on: England’s pack impressed against their cap-laden opponents, winning collisions throughout the gameBy Jamie HosieENGLAND MAY have suffered their first and only defeat of the autumn on Saturday, but there were more positives to take out of their performance against New Zealand than the previous two games combined.Despite succumbing to a 22-30 loss to the world champions, who keep up their hunt for the first ever ‘perfect year’, England showed they have the foundations to keep up with the best in the world.England have the pack to compete with the bestNo shirking: the pack got stuck inThe crushing loss to Wales in the last game of the Six Nations seems like a distant memory now. England’s pack were blown away that day, but on Saturday they proved that they have learnt their lesson. It was a performance brimming with power. Hartley, Marler, Lawes, Launchbury and Vunipola were all exemplary and when you consider who is still to come back from injury, as well as the impact the subs have had this autumn, the future is rosy for the English eight.Missing ManuThe biggest negative this autumn has been the centre partnership. With Brad Barritt and Manu Tuilagi out, there was a real chance for Twelvetrees and Tomkins to challenge them for selection come the Six Nations. While Twelvetrees found some kind of form in the last two games, Tomkins has not looked at home on the international stage. On Saturday he made eight carries and did not pass the ball a single time – with no line breaks or offloads to show for his efforts, that sort of one-dimensional play doesn’t really cut it at this level. England badly miss Manu to get some go-forward in the backs. Not to get carried away (it was a loss, after all), but England have confirmed that they have the foundations of a squad that could be capable of competing for the top honours at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. The pack was dominant in every game this autumn, and if England can find that little bit of stardust behind the scrum (bear in mind that Wade, Yarde, Eastmond and Tuilagi are all injured) then they can certainly challenge the Southern Hemisphere powers on any given day.Follow Jamie on Twitter: @jhosie43 during the QBE International match between England and New Zealand at Twickenham Stadium on November 16, 2013 in London, England. Farrell still has work to doOwen Farrell deserves a great deal of credit for the composure he showed against New Zealand to kick all six of his goals and effectively keep England in the game. However, his play with ball in hand still requires a lot of work. Too often he is guilty of receiving the ball and crabbing laterally across the pitch, eating up the space for the men outside him. Unless he has someone running a hard, short line off his shoulder (which neither Twelvetrees or Tomkins did on Saturday) it is an ineffectual use of possession. Farrell must learn to run straighter and commit the defenders, rather than allow them to drift so easily.Needs a partner: without Tuilagi, the backs lacked dynamismVunipola v Morgan is a selection battle to relishBen Morgan has stormed back into everyone’s good books with two performances that have redefined the meaning of ‘impact sub’. Before this series many people were suggesting he should be out of the squad altogether after some indifferent club form behind a struggling Gloucester tight five. Back behind a dominant England pack, however, he has looked marvelous. Billy Vunipola has also had an excellent autumn, slotting into the test arena with abundant ease. The tussle for the no.8 shirt in the years to come will be a fascinating one.Victory in 2015 is a real possibilitylast_img read more

Royal wedding preacher Presiding Bishop Michael Curry shares his love…

first_img 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 Rector Washington, DC May 19, 2018 at 12:03 pm Every time I hear PB Curry speak, my soul is stirred in a wonderful way. He brought fire to the gathering and spoke truth to power. So proud of our BP, so proud of our denomination, so proud to be a Christian and a first-generation American of British descent. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle during their wedding in Windsor, Britain, May 19, 2018. REUTERS/Jonathan Brady[Episcopal News Service – Windsor, England] When millions of people around the world tuned in to witness and celebrate the royal wedding of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle, they were also treated to one of the most dynamic preachers the happy couple could have chosen for their nuptials.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, the African-American leader of the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, spoke passionately for 13 minutes about the power of love.“The late Dr. Martin Luther King once said, and I quote: ‘We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love, and when we do that we will make of this old world a new world. For love is the only way.’“There’s power in love. Do not underestimate it,” the presiding bishop said. “Anyone who has ever fallen in love, knows what I mean. But think about love in any form or experience of it. It actually feels good to be loved, and to express love. There is something right about it. And there’s a reason.“Love, love is the only way. There’s power in love. Don’t underestimate. Don’t even oversentimentalize it. There’s power in love. If you don’t believe me, think about a time when you first fell in love, the whole world seemed to center around you and your beloved.Presiding Bishop Michael Curry preached during the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in Windsor, Britain. Owen Humphreys/REUTERS“There’s power in love, not in just its romantic form, but any form, in any shape of love, there’s a certain sense that when you are love and you know it, when someone cares for you and you know it. When you love and you show it, it actually feels right, there’s something right about it. And there’s a reason for it. The reason has to do with the source, we were made by a power of love and our lives were meant and are meant to be lived in that love. That’s why we are here.“Ultimately, the source of love is God himself. Where true love is found, God himself is there. … There’s power in love to help and heal when nothing else can. There’s power in love to lift up and liberate when nothing else will, there’s power in love to show us the way to live.“But love is not only about a young couple … it’s not just about a young couple we celebrate and rejoice with.”From there, the presiding bishop referenced the Jesus Movement.“Jesus began the most revolutionary movement in all of human history. A movement grounded in the unconditional love of God and for the world. And a movement mandating people to live and love, and in so doing, to change not only their lives, but the very life of the world itself. I’m talking about power, real power to change the world.”He went on to talk about redemption and unselfish, sacrificial love.“Jesus sacrificed his life for the good of the other, for the well-being of the world. For us. That’s what love is. Love is not selfish or self-centered, love can be sacrificial. And in so doing becomes redemptive. That way of unselfish, sacrificial redemptive love changes lives. And it can change this world. … Think and imagine a world where love is the way. Imagine our homes and families, where love is the way, imagine neighborhoods and communities where love is the way. Imagine governments and nations where love is the way. Imagine business and commerce when love is the way. Imagine this tired old world when love is the way … unselfish, sacrificial, redemptive. Then no child would go to bed hungry in this world ever again. When love is the way we will let justice roll down like a mighty stream and righteousness like an ever-flowing brook.” (The full sermon is here in video and text.)Crowds gathered to watch the royal wedding on screens throughout Windsor. Photo: Matthew Davies/ENS“It was a royal wedding today and a young couple gave their lives to each other before God and before the people of God, not just in the chapel, but throughout the world … and I thank you for your prayers for them and for your continued prayers for them and for me and for the archbishop,” said the presiding bishop in a video interview with Episcopal News Service following the service.It was a joy, he said, to see people around the country and the world “rejoicing and happy together.” Inside the chapel, guests could hear people on the outside applauding.“When the couple recited their vows literally the crowd erupted in applause. This was truly something like, something like the day of Pentecost when the Good News of Jesus was proclaimed, and people heard it in many different tongues, in many different cultures, in many different ways, and that is something to rejoice in,” said Curry.An estimated 150,000 well-wishers thronged the streets of Windsor, watching the ceremony broadcast live on their phones and large screens stationed along the whole procession route, clearly captivated by Curry’s charismatic message about Jesus’ love for the world and his words of encouragement for the newly married couple, named just before the wedding as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.The service began at noon local time at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, 21 miles west of London. In many ways, the day’s celebrations were a typical royal display of British pageantry, but some elements, including Curry’s pivotal role and the choice of wedding cake, are a departure from tradition.Preachers at royal weddings are usually senior clergy members in the Church of England.The bride walked down the aisle to Eternal Source of Light Divine by G.F. Handel, sung by Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas and was given to Prince Harry by his father, Prince Charles. The bride’s mother Doria Ragland looked on in tears.Celebrity guests included Elton John, David and Victoria Beckham, George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian, Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford, Oprah Winfrey and Idris Elba. The bride wore a dress designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy. Instead of the traditional fruitcake expected at a royal wedding, the couple selected American pastry chef Claire Ptak to create a lemon elderflower cake to incorporate the bright flavors of spring, covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers.Following the service, Curry and his wife, Sharon, joined the couple and 600 other guests at St. George’s Hall in Windsor Castle for a luncheon reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth II.St. George’s Chapel has hosted royal weddings for centuries. The chapel is known as a “royal peculiar,” a place of worship that falls directly under the jurisdiction of the British monarch, rather than a bishop.The Rt. Rev. David Conner, chapel dean, conducted the May 19 service according to a 1966 version of the liturgy of matrimony from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer, while Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, as head of the Church of England, presided over the royal wedding and solemnized the marriage.Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle during their wedding service, conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby in Windsor, Britain. Owen Humphreys/REUTERSMarkle was baptized by Welby and then confirmed in a private ceremony in March.The queen is the supreme governor of the Church of England, which is part of the Anglican Communion, and members of the royal family are expected to be active members in the church.Choral music at the service was performed by the choir of St. George’s Chapel, under the direction of James Vivian, the organist and master of the choristers. Other musicians included 19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason and the Kingdom Choir, a Christian gospel group conducted by Karen Gibson. The orchestra was conducted by Christopher Warren-Green and included musicians from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia Orchestra. Soprano Elin Manahan Thomas, trumpeter David Blackadder and organist Luke Bond joined the orchestra. State trumpeters drawn from all ranks of the Band of the Household Cavalry provided ceremonial support.Voices and trumpets combined to usher in the radiant bride to the majestic sounds of C. Hubert Parry’s well-known anthem, “I Was Glad,” composed for the coronation of Edward VII, Prince Harry’s great-great-great-grandfather.Hymns sung during the service included Lord of All Hopefulness and Guide Me, O Thou Great Redeemer. The order of service is here.Following the ceremony, the bride and bridegroom left Windsor Castle in an Ascot Landau carriage for a procession through the streets of Windsor.As the streets of Windsor came alive with celebrations, the royal wedding festivities stretched far beyond Windsor Castle and its surrounding areas.Anglican and Episcopal churches around the world, which trace their origins to the Church of England, also held local events and services to honor the happy couple.— Matthew Davies covered the royal wedding live.

A fortuitous thing that Ed Lane and I are NOT speaking on college campuses, we would be tarred and feathered for our non-majority views, even though free speech is supposed to be fostered on college campuses.

Rector Smithfield, NC den mark wichar, Vancouver WA says: May 19, 2018 at 5:08 pm Wonderful demonstration of what Anglicanism is, & is ever more becoming. We are different. We should be different. We must be different. Bishop Curry knows this. The world is catapulting in the wrong direction. We can stop that. We are perfectly positioned to stop that. Thank you, Bishop Michael. You truly “get it”. And Meghan & Harry must get it, too, having picked you for their ceremony. Anglican Communion, May 21, 2018 at 7:30 pm I read the two negative comments and have this response; I think Michael’s sermon was excellent. However, the two negative comments should remind us all that there are real people who feel marginalized for many different reasons. Michael’s sermon must also remind us that we need to learn how to reach out in love to those who feel like they are on the margins. The spirit of love must include everyone. Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Katrina Browne says: Rector Albany, NY Rector Pittsburgh, PA May 19, 2018 at 9:50 am The Presiding Bishop captured so powerfully the idea that Harry and Meghan’s love can and should live in a larger frame – the faith-filled frame that says that love has the power to remake the world, to change our institutions, to make us all family. With his invoking of Dr. King and the spirituals sung by enslaved people, he placed this power of love in the context of horrific history that England and the U.S. share. I pray we will face that history and its consequences more and more. For a moment, with so many millions of eyes and ears tuned in, I felt we were all preciously held and called by his words into the collective power of that ideal of love, the possibility of it coming more fully into the public square – which I believe so many of us yearn for in our heart of hearts. May 20, 2018 at 1:10 pm Rev.Curry brought it home today succinctly in less than 20 minutes on the theme of redemptive love; while bride and groom listened, others wiggled in their seats; this was a good sign that the Spirit was there, stirring things up; thank you Rev Curry– now,each day, we each need to IMAGINE the power of love manifested in our earth as sanctuary , our homes,community, business centers and commerce…and yes at the river edge where lay down the story of war for the power of love….thank you for boldly speaking out in that context and leaving a seal upon those hearts in Windsor and hearts all over the world…. May 19, 2018 at 5:34 pm Bishop Curry did us right, in my opinion. I loved his personal touches in a moment that is all too often stilted and locked in rigidity. And, if nothing else, he gave a sermon in a style that ol’ pile has *never* seen before (grin). Henry VIII was under the floor there; I wonder if he was wondering what he let loose when he split from Rome (GRIN).

Thuy Lowe Races to Succeed Congressman Daniel Webster

first_img Thuy Lowe, a Republican candidate for Florida’s 5th Congressional District during the 2014 election cycle, is the Republican candidate for Florida’s 10th Congressional District.Thuy LoweCongressman Daniel Webster decision to vacate his 10th Congressional District seat to run in Florida’s 11th Congressional District ignited Thuy’s interest to run to succeed him.Florida’s new 10th Congressional District absorbed all of the Orange County voting population of the old 5th Congressional District.“Over the last few months, I have been encouraged by voters in the district to run again.” Thuy Lowe said, “I am running because I’m deeply concerned about the disappearance of good paying job opportunities in this country, the over taxation and over regulation of small businesses, the increasing cost of healthcare, and the lack of support for our veterans. We need a restoration of leadership in Washington; we need leaders who are willing to make tough decisions to restore our great nation.”As a child, Thuy and her family were airlifted out of South Vietnam and onto the USS Midway on April 30, 1975; it was in one of the last helicopters to leave the rooftop of a diplomatic compound. Her family escaped the brutal Communist forces that have dominated Vietnam ever since. They began a new life in Orlando with the help from a local Winter Park church, which provided them with temporary assistance including clothing, housing, employment and food.The “new” 10th Congressional District includes Apopka as well as Northwest, West and Southwest Orange County.Thuy has been a resident of Central Florida since 1975.

Colombian GM workers continue fight

first_imgEncampment at U.S. Embassy in Colombia.A group of injured workers set up a tent encampment outside the U.S. Embassy in Bogotá, Colombia, on Aug. 1, 2011. Formerly exemplary workers at General Motors’ Colmotores plant, they were among hundreds who had been fired after sustaining work-related injuries that left them unable to do their jobs. The Association of Injured Workers and Ex-workers of Colmotores chose the U.S. Embassy because the U.S. government had bailed out GM during bankruptcy and was, at that time, a majority shareholder.Three years later, after holding four hunger strikes with their lips sewn shut and two staged crucifixions, and, recently, burying themselves up to their necks, workers are still holding up the encampment while GM refuses to even meet with them. What they want is to be retrained by GM for jobs they can perform with their disabilities. GM continues to deny that they were hurt on the job and claims it offered the workers a “generous” settlement during a mediation two years ago.The Asotrecol Solidarity Network has held many protests outside GM dealerships and, in Detroit, outside GM world headquarters — where they demonstrated again on the occasion of the encampment’s third anniversary.As shown by this recent photo from the encampment, the workers know that their struggle is part of the global struggle of all workers and oppressed people.For more info, visit asotrecol.org.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
