Scotland 22-23 Australia: Five talking points from the Murrayfield heartbreak

first_img 1. This was the same – but differentYes, it was another one-point loss to the Wallabies put to bed in the dying minutes, but this defeat for Scotland was a lot different to the World Cup nailbiter from 2015, the last time these teams met.For starters, there was far less referee-related controversy. The Scots came out on top in the try count this time too. They weren’t chasing their opponents, they were competing with them. Scoreline aside, there was more positive than negative to take from this one.2. The front row passed the testThere was a lot of worry running up to the game around the absence of both WP Nel and Alasdair Dickinson through injury. The fate of the scrums was placed in the hands of 20-year-old Zander Fagerson (one cap) and former South African U20 Allan Dell (0 caps) and overall they gave a good account of themselves.The scrum wobbled and yes there were penalties, but it never capitulated, and both props put in strong carries during an impressive first half for the Scots.Bright spot: Zander Fagerson, here tackling Israel Folau, stood up well to the challenge (Pic: Getty)The main thing was that the scrum wasn’t turned into a stream of points for the Wallabies.Sterner scrummaging challenges await them in the form of Argentina and Georgia over the next two weekends. If they come through those with pride intact, we should see an end to the first-choice front row having to play for a full 80 minutes when Nel and Dickinson return.3. Jones was the centre of attentionLast year Duncan Taylor was the breakout star in midfield, and his injury and lack of game time was seen as a blow to Scotland’s prospects this autumn.We needn’t have worried: it looks like the exiles system has unearthed another star in the form of Huw Jones. Playing in the same 13 shirt favoured by both Taylor and Mark Bennett, the Edinburgh-born Western Province/Stormers centre had just one five-minute cameo to his name to date. So his exact international quality was unknown, although his Currie Cup highlights reels on Youtube were impressive enough.Class finish: Huw Jones scores his second try in a Man of the Match performance (Pic: Reuters)His first try was a thing of beauty conjured by Finn Russell, a deft chip kick bouncing perfectly for Jones to angle on to; there wasn’t a gold shirt near him once he hit top speed.The second was similarly impressive, using his footwork to elude Tevita Kuridrani when it looked like perhaps Scotland should have gone towards the other wing where Sean Maitland saw an overlap.Like young Fagerson, Jones looks totally at ease at this level and should earn a further two matches to showcase his talents; a move north should be next.4. Injuries at the start cost Scotland at the end LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS History repeated itself as the Scots succumbed to a late score from the Wallabies, but Rory Baldwin saw lots of positives for Vern Cotter’s men By the end of this one, Scotland had Grant Gilchrist packing down on the blindside with both Gray brothers still on. The superb John Barclay was all but out on his feet carrying a limp shoulder, having tackled himself to a standstill.It all started with an early injury to No 8 Ryan Wilson, that meant a dynamic back row consisting entirely of opensides. When replacement John Hardie was injured later in the game, the toll of a hugely intense effort in both defence and attack started to take its toll on the Scottish pack.Injury toll: John Hardie is carted off – the Scots’ second back-row casualty (Pic: Reuters)With tired bodies come tired minds, and an almost inevitable increase in the penalty count against Scotland allowed Australia to keep probing. Kuridrani’s heart-breaker of a try in the 76th minute effectively settled the issue, as the Scots found it extremely difficult to make ground against a dogged Wallaby defence in the closing minutes.Devastating for such a superhuman effort to be, in the end, not quite enough.5. Food for thought ahead of ArgentinaWhen asked in the post-match performance if this loss was harder to take than the World Cup loss, Greig Laidlaw insisted that game was gone, in the past. This one has to be locked away now too, and quickly. With Argentina coming off the back of a narrow loss to Wales, they will be targeting this weekend’s game for a ‘bounce back’ win.It wasn’t a complete performance by any means but the key pointers to work on are simple things, even if they are not unfamiliar failings.Restarts and kick-offs are still a nightmare, the exit strategies were not as effective as they should be. Scotland should be using Stuart Hogg’s giant boot for any touch finders and clearances, and he or Russell should take any penalties at the limit of Laidlaw’s range.Called up: Uncapped Edinburgh back-row Cornell du Preez has joined the Scotland squad (Pic: Getty)Tommy Seymour may come back in on the wing while the back row will almost certainly change with injuries to Wilson and Hardie likely to mean a first cap for Cornell du Preez.Finally, Scotland need to trust in each other to score points, and focus on retaining possession.center_img Not again: Greig Laidlaw (left) looks on as Australia celebrate their narrow win at Murrayfield (Pic: Getty) However, that first-half effort showed that the blueprint for the future of Scottish rugby is coming closer to fruition.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers click here.

Photo: Screen grab/How2charist[Episcopal News Service] If you run a traditional piece of Episcopal Church formation – the instructed Eucharist – through the new world of digital ministry, what do you get?You get How2charist, an annotated video with a 28-page discussion guide for learning why Episcopalians do what they do when they celebrate the Eucharist. The on-screen explanations range from descriptions of the priest’s vestments and the vessels used on the altar to explanations of each part of the liturgy, such as the memorial acclamation and the epiclesis.Many Episcopal priests occasionally preside at a Eucharist during which they stop the service to explain what they are doing and why, discussing tradition and liturgical theology. How2charist offers a seamless Eucharist that explains without stopping the action, so to speak.The video can be viewed as a whole but is also available in individual chapters to make a four-session small-group series. Two of the sessions cover the flow of the Liturgy of the Word portion of the Eucharist through the Prayers of the People. The next two chapters show the Liturgy of the Table. The full film and the chapters can be viewed online or downloaded to use offline.It’s all free for the taking. The only “charge” is an email address for getting a “token” that provides access to the film and discussion guide.How2charist is the culmination of a nearly 11-year-old dream of the Rev. Callie Swanlund, an associate rector at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania. It also represents an innovative collaboration between Swanlund and The Episcopal Church’s digital evangelism team.The Rev. Callie Swanlund has been dreaming about making How2charist since she was in seminary. Photo: Screen grab/How2charist’s trailerThe idea for How2charist came to Swanlund in 2008 when she took a course at Church Divinity School of the Pacific with the Rev. Micah Jackson called “New Media in Worship & Preaching.” Swanlund started with the idea of an instructed Eucharist and thought about VH1’s Pop-Up Video series, which between 1996 and 2006 added “pop-up” bubbles – called “info nuggets” – containing trivia, witticisms and other comments to music videos. Swanlund’s first version was a PowerPoint, but she and others kept thinking bigger.In a screen grab from How2charist’s trailer, the Rev. Callie Swanlund breaks the host as an explanation appears on the screen.How2charist has only been available since earlier this year, yet as of Feb. 20, the film has been viewed, at least in part, 1,310 times. Some 1,350 people have requested access codes to view it and the guide.Feedback, both to Swanlund personally and via social media posts (which How2charist encourages), has shown her that the creative ways people are using How2charist go “beyond anything I could have dreamed up,” she said in a telephone interview with Episcopal News Service. Those ways include congregations using it to help train their acolytes and dioceses using it in their classes for training would-be priests locally.One congregation plans to “deconstruct” the video, adding some of the pop-up explanations to the printed special bulletins they use to guide guests who come to witness baptisms. “It goes back to, in some ways, what I was moving away from in making this digital version, but I love it,” she said. “It shows that they love the information contained in it and not just some flashy model of presentation.”The film crew, led by Michael Collins, Episcopal Church manager of multimedia services, left, discusses its plan as the Rev. Callie Swanlund stands at the altar and the Rev. Nancy Frausto, a priest in the Diocese of Los Angeles, listens at right. How2charist was staged at Trinity Episcopal Church in Ambler, Pennsylvania. The full-length Spanish version, in which Frausto presides at Church of the Epiphany in Los Angeles, is due out this spring. Photo: Jeremy TackettThe choice of liturgical style was a challenge. “That was the fear that kept me awake,” Swanlund said. Though, she knew she had a good film crew and a good group of volunteers both on screen and behind the scenes as consultants to prevent her from doing something “that is going to get me burned at the stake.” She also knew that “it’s me that it falls on” because she was claiming to be “representing the Eucharist to the entire Episcopal Church.”Swanlund anticipated valid criticism. She also figured there might be some nitpickers “because we’re Episcopalians and we love to be nitpicky; I think it is one of our core values,” she said, laughing. Such criticism “comes from a place of deep love and care for our liturgy,” Swanlund said.Swanlund aimed for what might be called “a broad church” liturgical style, not too plain or “low church” and not too much of the so-called “smells and bells” associated with a “high-church” style of presiding. She encouraged the volunteer congregation to act the way they would in their own churches. So, some people crossed themselves frequently; others did not. Some sang and prayed with raised hands. Some knelt when others stood.“I wanted to honor this liturgy that we share. It’s common prayer, so I wanted to make it as common as possible, knowing that there are differences,” she said. The discussion guide gives viewers the chance to reflect on the differences they see.Criticism “has been, so far, less than I anticipated,” but there has been some, she said. Very few people said that they wished the style had been lower, but some wished it had been higher, Swanlund said. And, then, there was the debate on the online discussion site Reddit about whether her left-handedness invalidated her blessings.Some viewers debated whether it was appropriate for the Rev. Callie Swanlund to bless with her left hand. Photo: Screen grab/How2charistThere are overhead shots, close-up shots, multiple angles and slow-motion sequences. “We wanted to have the people watching it to have an intimate view of the Eucharist that they might never have in a typical Sunday service,” she said. A project with these kind of production values costs money.Swanlund started an online fundraising effort through Kickstarter to pay for How2charist. The effort began during General Convention’s meeting in Austin, Texas, last July.The Diocese of Texas was an early backer, according to Swanlund. Carol Barnwell, who was then the diocesan director of communication, “was a cheerleader,” even during an earlier effort when Swanlund realized she was not in a position at that time to pull it off. Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Diane Jardine Bruce took Swanlund to meet other bishops in Austin. The diocese became How2charist’s largest backer. Swanlund also contacted other bishops she knew.There were non-Episcopalians who became supporters, some at the $500-or-more partner level, such as Jenn Giles Kemper, the developer of the Sacred Ordinary Days planner. Giles Kemper is what Swanlund called a “liturgical Baptist” from Waco, Texas. “To see another woman entrepreneur say, ‘I’m committed to this project and also to other women doing ministerial entrepreneurship’ was really, really cool,” Swanlund said. “It buoyed me.”The support of 236 Kickstarter backers, including dioceses, congregations and individuals, raised $35,000. Swanlund said many backers whom she did not know have since introduced themselves to her at events, and they seem to express “a communal pride” about being part of the project.The film crew shot from many angles during the Eucharist at Trinity Episcopal Church in Ambler, Pennsylvania. Photo: Jeremy TackettHow2charist also fits with the mandate that General Convention gave the churchwide staff in 2015 (via Resolution 2015_B009) to create somewhat timeless content that would be available to the church for download. Jeremy Tackett, the church’s digital evangelist and senior manager for creative services, told ENS that “rather than simply try to figure out on our own what kind of content would be attractive to the church, we decided to look for creators who were already in the process of doing unique things in the church.”He called Swanlund’s Kickstarter effort “innovative” and explained that “if the fundraising was successful on its own, we knew that we’d have a project with buy-in from folks who would use it once created.” Its success gave the Digital Evangelism department “an established proof of concept” that showed that the church’s partnership with Swanlund would be “good stewardship of our resources,” Tackett said.Swanlund’s fund covered the costs of developing and filming the English language version of the How2charist. Tackett’s department took the project through post-production, including producing a Spanish-language version, and into distribution of the film and guide. (The full-length Spanish video, in which the Rev. Nancy Frausto presides at Church of the Epiphany in Los Angeles, is due out this spring.)Tackett said he is excited about using the model of How2charist in future projects. “By partnering with creators throughout the church, we’re able to expand the pool of ideas and concepts beyond what those connected directly to our office can conceptualize,” he said. “And by working with creators who have a model for at least ‘seed’ fundraising, we can establish that there’s an audience and market for the product we’re helping bring to life.”The hope, he said, is that both his office and Swanlund can now become “partners with and guides to other dreamers who are doing unique things in the world of digital ministry, and that we can bring those ideas to a churchwide audience.”– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is the Episcopal News Service’s senior editor and reporter.last_img read more

Apopka man dies in crash on State Road 50

first_img So very sorry. May he rest in peace and prayers to his family and friends. Breaking Overnight Traffic News From the Florida Highway PatrolAn Apopka man died overnight in a crash at the intersection of Semon Drive and East Colonial Boulevard (State Road 50) in Orlando. At around 12:15 AM this morning, the Florida Highway Patrol responded to a one-car crash on East State Road 50 in Orlando. Anthony Disla, 25, was traveling westbound in the inside travel lane approaching traffic. Disla attempted to change lanes to the outside travel lane to pass the traffic, but failed to maintain control of his vehicle and traveled onto the westbound shoulder of State Road 50. Disla traveled down the embankment on the westbound shoulder and collided with a tree. The vehicle overturned onto its right side. The crash remains under investigation.No other details are known.

What happened was that he allegedly was driving his 2008 Chevy pickup and rear-ended a tractor ahead of him causing both vehicles to go off road into ditches. The man on the tractor was pronounced dead at the hospital. He was 66, and Chris Soules’ neighbor. This was in the area near Soules’ farm in Arlington, Iowa. This was reported on Radar Online, as well as other sources, and I believe it happened maybe Monday, not sure. He allegedly took off on foot, one source stated, but Radar Online stated he allegedly took off in his truck. This was sometime after 8:00 pm and Soules was caught, arrested, and booked around 1:00 am or shortly after. The police had found some booze containers and believe that drinking was a factor. One source states tractor, and another source states tractor trailer, so I don’t know. I don’t know what Chris Soules has to say about the fatal crash, or if he talked at all, at his intial appearance before a judge. What do you think will happen with Chris Soules?

Winners of LSAD / LIT and ELVES animation and motion design…

first_img TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostLITLSAD With Compliments. ELVES, the End-of-Life Vehicle compliance scheme and Limerick School of Art & Design LIT today announced the winners of their recent joint video animation competition. Photographed at the event were the winning entry ‘8-Bit’ created by students David Ng Yee Shian, Limerick, Samantha O’Keeffe Tipperary town and Michael McNamara, Askeaton. Also in the photograph are Mike Fitzpatrick, Dean, Limerick School of Art & Design LIT, Lee Jane Eastwood, ELVES and Elena Wrelton, Enviromental Compliance Manager, ELVES. Photograph Press 22The purpose of the contest is to help ELVES raise awareness about how End-of-Life Vehicles (ELVs) in Ireland should be processed properly. As the compliance scheme for the End-of-Life Vehicle sector, part of ELVES remit is to create public awareness about how people should correctly scrap their cars and small vans, once they are no longer roadworthy.

We at ELVES have been very impressed by the calibre of the entries, all so different, all so accomplished.  We could only pick one overall winner, but it was a very difficult decision. The future of animation is safe with these students.”David Phelan, Animation & Motion Design Lecturer at Limerick School of Art and Design (LIT), added, “Having the opportunity to work on an industry brief, which has to achieve real life objectives for a client is an invaluable opportunity for our students.Seeing what works and what doesn’t, where you can be creative and where you have to fit into certain parameters are valuable skills. A competition such as this challenges the students and helps to equip them with these skills into the next stage of their experience. We were delighted to partner with ELVES on this project.”WinnerVideo Game Animation ‘8-Bit’David NG Yee Shian, Michael McNamara and Samantha O’KeeffeRunners UpConor Bourke & Sinead MitchellAnna Dreimane, Kate Deegan and Mikey Cashell Print Linkedin WhatsApp Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live LimerickNewsWinners of LSAD / LIT and ELVES animation and motion design competition announcedBy Meghann Scully – March 3, 2020 199 Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Advertisementcenter_img WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Email Twitter Previous articleLimerick’s St Patrick’s Festival to be beamed live to millions of people across AmericaNext articleMunsters and Bohs the only Limerick winners from the weekend’s AIL action Meghann Scully Facebooklast_img read more

(Photo: Business Wire) Mr. Burke most recently served as the CEO of Livongo Health, Inc. As CEO, he successfully led the company to the largest consumer digital health initial public offering in July 2019 and its eventual $18.5 billion merger in Teladoc Health, Inc. (NYSE: TDOC), to form the world’s largest virtual care company. This merger is recognized as one of the largest M&A transactions in 2020. “I am eager to join Bardavon’s board of directors, and to help in their mission to redefine the industry’s current digital health approach to Workers’ Compensation,” said Burke. “Matt Condon is a great leader; I have a lot of respect for what he’s built. Bardavon’s single-minded focus on functional outcomes for injured Workers’ Compensation patients is similar to Livongo’s whole-person strategy. This approach, based on clinical therapy data, provides the innovation this market has been lacking.

At the time of his departure from Cerner, the Company was generating over $5 billion in annual revenue with more than 29,000 associates and 27,500 provider facilities in 35 countries. “Zane’s addition to our Board will be catalytic for Bardavon,” said Bardavon Founder and CEO, Matthew Condon. “He intuitively understands the challenges facing employers and providers in today’s digital health marketplace. Zane has a deep knowledge of healthcare and how to build and scale new models for innovation. He knows how healthcare platforms can transform an industry for all stakeholders.
