Australia women’s sevens are breaking down barriers in their hunt for success

first_imgFOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HEREShannon Parry, the second co-captain of Australia’s sevens team, believes that winning the inaugural Olympic Games title, two years ago in Rio de Janeiro, improved the general attitude towards women’s sport in her country, led to greater nourishment of rugby in particular, and paved the way for this pay parity.“That gold medal has been fantastic for the growth of women’s rugby in Australia, and it has helped develop rugby at all levels, from the grass roots to the top,” the 28-year old told me earlier this week. “Now we have a clear pathway for women’s 7s and 15s players, with the introduction of the Super W, which is starting in March, as well as the new Aon University Sevens Series. It is clear that youngsters can make it all the way to become an Olympic champion or win the World Cup.”Speed merchant: Ellia Green cuts loose against SpainIn another first, this April’s Commonwealth Games, held on the Gold Coast in Australia, will see women’s sevens teams going for glory. And, following the conclusion of the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series, the Sevens World Cup – for men and women – takes place in San Francisco in July.It’s some year for women’s rugby, and after the pay-parity boost, confidence is high in the Australian camp, understandably. It would surprise no one if the buoyed hosts, who won the first stop of the series in Dubai before Christmas, triumphed this weekend in Sydney.“For any Australian to play on a home soil and in front of family and friends it’s definitely a special moment that you’ll always remember, and it doesn’t happen very often,” continued Parry. “For us it promises to be a great year. First up is Sydney, in the HSBC Sevens Series, and then we have the Commonwealth Games on home soil – it will be the first time women’s rugby features, so that will be special. Finally it’s the World Cup. Three bigs ones in a year. A great way to start will be with victory in Sydney this weekend.” All smiles: Sharni Williams and Shannon Parry celebrate. (pic by Dom Thomas) Australia women’s sevens are breaking down barriers in their hunt for successBy Oliver PickupIn modern sporting parlance, “game changer” – alongside “legendary” and “awesome” – is one of the most wince-inducing, hackneyed expressions. However, when Rugby Australia announced, earlier in January, a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) had been struck that guarantees the women’s and men’s sevens and Super Rugby starters will be handed the same base pay, it truly was a game changer.It is the first time in history that a top-tier rugby nation has taken this progressive – and, for many, long overdue – step to pay parity. The entry-level salary of A$44,500 (£25,260) will stretch across all formats of the game until at least 2020, when the present broadcast deal expires; it would be scandalous if a similar deal is not established at that point.Further, female players also have a new pregnancy policy built into the current package, which again marks a huge advancement for women’s sport, in Australia and beyond.“Everybody is talking about equality at the moment, and it is so exciting that our nation is leading the way with our sport,” Sharni Williams, co-captain of the Australian women’s sevens team, told me on the eve of the HSBC Sydney Sevens, which began on Friday. “The pay parity will make Australia thrive. We are proud to be the first union to achieve equal pay. I’m sure others will follow – in sport and other areas.”In it together: Australia women huddle up before competingGame changing, epochal, call it what you want … the fillip achieved from the newfound equality for Australia’s female players was obvious on the first day of competition in Sydney – Australia Day, appropriately enough – which also represented the first time the men and women will be playing across the same three days at the same tournament.The hosts, in the second round of the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series, were on a different level to their opponents, in more ways than one. They advanced to the quarter finals from Pool A after chalking up 122 unanswered points, against Spain (29-0), Papua New Guinea (50-0), and France (43-0). LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Clean through: Emma Tonegato scores in the rout of Papua New GuineaWilliams, a 29-year-old qualified mechanic, added: “If I were to pick one of the three titles I would choose success at the Commonwealth Games. Being the inaugural event, and it being at home, will be a huge driving force. To win that and add it to our Olympic gold medal would be pretty special.”Victory this weekend could spark a glittering gold-and-green winning streak for Australia’s women. Should that happen it will only serve to emphasise that it is high time other top-tier unions stump up the monies to compete, and achieve pay parity. Now that really would be awesome and legendary, if you will excuse the clichéd turns of phrase.last_img read more

Watch the tries that keep Wales’ Grand Slam bid on track

first_imgThe roar from the crowd at that moment was huge and beer went flying all around the stadium as Wales fans celebrated.Wales dealt with the England kicking game – so effective in the first two rounds – extremely well, with full-back Liam Williams named Man of the Match. And they closed down the half-backs quickly so Ben Youngs and Owen Farrell didn’t have so much time to put boot to ball.It was a tight, feisty affair, with several scuffles breaking out in the second half, and some of the tackles going in were brutal. There were myriad double hits to stop players’ momentum or even drive them back in the tackle.Here’s a statistic to illustrate the defensive effort: England’s Kyle Sinckler and Tom Curry both made 16 tackles in that first 40 minutes.Related: Downtime with Kyle SincklerThe two defences didn’t allow either side to break through into open space too often. Curry did find a gap in the 25th minute, breaking from a ruck near the Welsh line to score.Yet it was Wales’ patience in that final quarter that reaped dividends, with the tries from Hill and Adams proving crucial. Wales head to Scotland in round four and face Ireland at home in their final game, so the clean sweep is far from sealed – and England could still lift the title – but it is in the hands of Warren Gatland’s side.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

In England, women bishops legislation remains intact

first_img Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Submit an Event Listing Curate Diocese of Nebraska Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Tags Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Collierville, TN Rector Martinsville, VA Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Press Release Service Protestors in favor of women bishops gathered in July 2006 on the campus of York University before the debate began on a motion that addressed the process of ordaining women to the episcopate. ENS Photo/Matthew Davies[Episcopal News Service] The Church of England‘s General Synod, meeting Feb. 6-9 in London, has rejected a bid to provide greater concessions for those opposed to women bishops. A final vote on the legislation that will enable women to become bishops is expected to come before synod in July.The Manchester Diocesan Synod Motion, introduced in September 2011 and backed by the archbishops of Canterbury and York, would have supported amending a draft measure to enable two bishops to exercise episcopal functions within the same jurisdiction by way of “co-ordinating” their ministries.The same amendment was rejected 18 months earlier when in July 2010 General Synod backed the currently unaltered measure that paves the way for women to become bishops, a setback for traditionalists who had hoped for more robust provisions for those in opposition. Some supporters of women bishops feared the Manchester Motion would force women bishops to accept limitations on their authority.During the past 18 months the legislation supporting women bishops has been given the nod by 42 of the 44 diocesan synods throughout England, but it now requires a two-thirds majority in each of the three houses of General Synod – bishops, clergy and laity – for it to be adopted. Before the legislation comes to synod for final approval, likely when it next meets in July, the House of Bishops will have one last chance in May to tweak the text of the draft measure.The text of the Manchester Motion was entirely replaced by the text of an amendment that calls for the women bishops measure to return to synod “substantially unamended,” meaning a woman diocesan bishop would not be obligated to cede any of her episcopal authority to a male alternative.The Rev. Canon Clare Edwards of the Diocese of Canterbury said during a Feb. 8 synod debate that the Manchester motion “would fundamentally change the episcopacy creating a barrier between those on either side. Our Christian identity needs to be in being equally loved sons and daughters of God … I believe we will have nothing to say to our world if we resort to legislation to coexist.”The Rev. Canon Kathryn Fitzsimons, from the Diocese of Ripon and Leeds, reminded synod of the Feb. 7 address from Sally Keeble, director of the Anglican Alliance, in which they heard about the value of empowering women throughout the Anglican Communion. “Let’s not let our statement of public policy let down women throughout the communion,” she said, urging them to reject the Manchester motion.Motions identical to the one proposed by Manchester were passed by four other diocesan synods.The Diocese of Wakefield supported the Manchester motion “even though a majority are in support of women bishops,” said the Rev. Paul Cartwright. “I think this is a lesson to learn. Today’s business could be a make or break for the Church of England. We need to ensure that we care for those who do not support women bishops … We need to work for a win-win situation and one way we can do this is to support the Manchester motion in tact and unchanged.”Archbishop of York John Sentamu reaffirmed Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams’ earlier plea that “all desire to proceed in a way that would maintain the highest degree of communion,” and that the Manchester motion would provide an opportunity to accomplish that goal.Bishop Michael Perham of Gloucester, who received the loudest and longest applause throughout the three-hour debate, disagreed. He explained that the current draft measure unamended already represents “a huge sacrifice by the supporters of women bishops. The draft legislation is a huge compromise. It is the middle way … The last thing we want is for the legislation to go down at the last moment. Supporters of women in the episcopate won’t be able to vote for the [amended] legislation. Manchester ties everyone’s hands unhelpfully… and it is not the way forward.”Christina Rees, a lay member from St. Albans and former chair of women-bishop advocacy group Women and the Church, or WATCH, said that passing the Manchester motion amendment would send the message that “we are a church that has said yes to women bishops, but in law they are not quite the same as their male counterparts. At a stroke passing this … motion [creates] a two-tier episcopate.”Anne Foreman, a lay member from the Diocese of Exeter, also urged synod to reject the motion because it would further delay the appointment of women bishops, restrict their role and authority “and it will change what the dioceses have voted for.”But Emma Forward, a lay member also from the Diocese of Exeter, described herself as “a young Anglo-Catholic who cannot in conscience accept women bishops … We’re relying on this amendment to pass” she said, describing it as “our best chance to have a future in the Church of England.”A measure is a piece of legislation that, once passed by the General Synod, requires approval by the U.K. Parliament. Parliamentary approval is necessary because the measure effectively changes English law as the Church of England is an officially established Christian church with Queen Elizabeth II as its supreme governor. Assuming all stages of the legislative process proceed without delay, the first woman bishop could not be consecrated in England until at least 2014.According to the Church of England’s constitution, only the House of Bishops has the authority to alter any measure because of the implications it has on English law. Any debate in the General Synod, therefore, is simply advisory.Only if the legislation is “substantially” amended, would it need to be referred back to the dioceses for approval, thus delaying the process by a further 12-18 months. The decision on what determines a “substantial” amendment, falls to a committee of six people – appropriately named the “Group of Six” – made up of the presidents and prolocutors of the Convocations of Canterbury and York, and the chair and vice chair of the House of Laity.History of women’s ordained ministryThe General Synod began its steady course toward allowing women in the episcopate when in July 2005 it passed a motion to remove the legal obstacles to ordaining women bishops.In July 2006, synod called for the practical and legislative arrangements of admitting women to the episcopate to be explored. It also called for the formation of a legislative drafting group to prepare a draft measure and amending canon necessary to remove the legal obstacles.At its July 2008 group of sessions, synod agreed that it was the “wish of its majority … for women to be admitted to the episcopate” and affirmed that “special arrangements be available, within the existing structures of the Church of England, for those who as a matter of theological conviction will not be able to receive the ministry of women as bishops or priests.”General Synod voted in February 2009 to send a draft measure on women bishops to a revision committee so it could rework the legislation.The revision committee met 16 times beginning in May 2009 and considered 114 submissions from synod members, and a further 183 submissions from others. In May 2010, the committee published its 142-page report, which offered a detailed analysis of the draft legislation in time for the July 2010 synod debate and vote.The long path towards accepting women’s ordained ministry in the Anglican Communion began in 1920 when the Lambeth Conference called (via Resolutions 47-52) for the diaconate of women to be restored “formally and canonically,” adding that it should be recognized throughout the communion.The first woman priest in the communion, Li Tim-Oi, was ordained in Hong Kong in 1944. Due to outside pressure she resigned her license, but not her holy orders, following World War II. In 1971, the Rev. Jane Hwang and the Rev. Joyce Bennett were ordained priests in the Diocese of Hong Kong, though their ministries were not recognized in many parts of the Anglican Communion.In 1974, there was an “irregular” ordination of 11 women in the U.S.-based Episcopal Church, which officially authorized women’s priestly ordination two years later.Bishop Barbara Harris, now retired suffragan of Massachusetts, was elected in 1988 and became the Anglican Communion’s first woman bishop after her consecration and ordination in 1989.The Rt. Rev. Penelope Jamieson made history in 1989 when she was elected as bishop of the Diocese of Dunedin, New Zealand, and became the first woman to serve as a diocesan bishop in the Anglican Communion.The Rt. Rev. Mary Adelia McLeod, who was ordained a priest in 1980, was consecrated in 1993 as bishop of the Diocese of Vermont, becoming the first woman diocesan bishop in the U.S.-based Episcopal Church. She retired in 2001.The Rt. Rev. Canon Nerva Cot Aguilera became the first woman Anglican bishop in Latin America when she was consecrated bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Church of Cuba in June 2007.The Church of England opened the priesthood to women in November 1992, five years after women were first ordained to the diaconate. More than 5,000 women have been ordained as priests in England since 1994 and today they represent nearly 40 percent of all clergy.The General Synod is the national assembly of the Church of England which came into being in 1970 replacing an earlier body known as the Church Assembly. It continues a tradition of synodical government which, in England, has its origins in the medieval period.— Matthew Davies is editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

AFBF and NPPC among those Supporting Trump EPA Nominee

first_img more-pruitt-for-epa-reactionScott PruittAmerican Farm Bureau officials are welcoming President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency after years of turbulent relations with the Obama administration’s EPA leadership.Environmental groups see a rollback of Obama clean air and water rules, but AFBF and other farm groups are elated by Trump’s pick of Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt to lead EPA.“We have watched as Attorney General Pruitt has taken on EPA,” says AFBF executive director Dale Moore. “He’s been one of the fighters in our effort to push back on Waters of the US, and taking on a number of those challenges that show that our state governments are paying as close attention to some of this regulatory creep that we’ve been fighting.”Farm Bureau President Zippy Duvall in a written statement says Pruitt who joined other attorneys general in legal action against the EPA should provide a “new degree of fairness” for agriculture.Duvall says AFBF expects that Pruitt will listen to concerns of farmers and others who work daily with the nation’s natural resources, and Moore agrees things are about to change at the EPA.“I think the tone and the tenor are in the process of changing and we very much look forward to working with Mr. Pruitt when he is approved by the Senate and put into his new role. We stand ready to work him to take these regulations that have been causing so many problems for our farmers and ranchers, and pull them back to the point where we’re doing our jobs.”Pruitt must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate once Trump takes office next month.The Texas energy industry is applauding Scott Pruitt’s selection. Texas Oil and Gas Association president Todd Staples says the nomination is good for America.“I think that this appointment, or nomination should be encouraging to all Americans, to see that the president-elect is selecting leadership that understands protecting the environment and growing the economy are not mutually exclusive”He says Pruitt recognizes the states are best suited to regulate different levels of activity. Staples adds Pruitt will be sensitive to the needs of energy producers and farmers. The National Pork Producers Council called the EPA selection, and that of Iowa Governor Terry Branstad for U.S. ambassador to China “good for our industry, good for agriculture and good for rural America and the country at large.” Previous articleFarm Credit System Reports Increasing StressNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for December 12, 2016 Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News AFBF and NPPC among those Supporting Trump EPA Nominee By Andy Eubank – Dec 11, 2016 AFBF and NPPC among those Supporting Trump EPA Nominee SHARElast_img read more

Journalist’s home searched, confidentiality of sources threatened

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders is stunned and alarmed to learn that police yesterday raided the home of Journal de Montréal reporter Éric-Yvan Lemay, taking his finger prints, his computer and the clothes he wore while visiting Montreal area hospitals last month for a story about confidential patient records being left in hospital corridors where anyone can look at themThe raid was the result of a complaint by one of the hospitals accusing Lemay of “theft of property worth less than $5,000” and “trafficking in identifying information.”“All Lemay did was expose serious threats to medical confidentiality, a subject of obvious public interest,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Nothing was stolen and there was no trafficking, so the nature of the charges is very worrying. Even more astounding is the nature of the search of his home, with forensic samples being taken as if this were a terrorism case.“Such procedures violate both freedom of information and the most fundamental individual rights. We support the protests by the Professional Federation of Quebec Journalists (FPJQ), which has denounced the case, and we hope this investigation will be voided.”In an 8 February report in Journal de Montréal (which is owned by Quebecor), Lemay described how he was able to read patient records that had been left lying around in the corridors of several hospitals. His story did not name the patients.Shaky confidentiality The raid on Lemay’s home has fuelled concern about the confidentiality of journalists’ sources and the fact that guarantees seem to depend on the good will of the decision-makers involved. On 1 March, a Quebec court ruled against an attempt by real estate developer Tony Accurso to get Radio-Canada reporter Alain Gravel to reveal his source for a story about a case of tax fraud case in which Accurso was not personally charged.But, on 28 February, another judge ordered Maurice Giroux of the online newspaper MediaSud to reveal his sources for a story claiming that Marie-Josée Prud’homme, the president of Max Aviation and Cargair, had leaked a confidential report to another journalist.Finally the Montreal media are on tenterhooks about the ongoing investigation into the source of media reports that former police officer Ian Davidson sold a list of 2,000 Montreal police informers to the local mafia. Davidson’s death on 18 January has been officially declared a suicide.C-30 still pending Reporters Without Borders continues to urge the government to abandon draft Federal Law C-30 which was submitted to parliament on 14 February and which would place Internet users under close surveillance in the name of the otherwise legitimate cause of combating cyber-crime. The proposed law would inter alia allow the police to approach telecom companies and, without seeking a court warrant, demand that they hand over the personal data of clients.
