The Dutch government paid nearly €40bn to rescue the domestic financial sector in 2008 when it nationalised ABN AMRO and provided capital injections for ING, insurer Aegon, and bancassurer SNS Reaal.“Today’s announcement marks another important milestone as we work towards the full repayment of the support ING received from the Dutch state,” said Jan Hommen, ING’s chief executive, in a statement.“The strong recovery of the banking business in 2010 has enabled us to accelerate the repurchase of the core Tier 1 securities from retained earnings, while maintaining a robust capital position post repayment.”ING has already divested several non-core assets, including most of its real estate management operations and its Asian private banking business, to raise funds, and plans to list its insurance units in 2012.

Analysis – Why New Zealand still need Richie McCaw and Dan Carter

first_imgThis image, of two genuine greats snuffing out an opponent, is hardly unfamiliar.From now until October 31, the date of the World Cup final, we might just see it once or twice more. Power couple: Richie McCaw and Dan Carter in action against Samoa He turns sideways to catch – so if he spills there is no knock-on……before offloading under pressure form Filo Paulo:This allows New Zealand to move the ball right into some space, and Williams hacks downfield. Alofa Alofa then carries back into his own 22 before kicking out on the full:The All Blacks end the exchange with a net gain of around 50 metres and a lineout just outside the Samoa 22. Of course, what you also get with such outstanding players are moments of individual excellence.Game-changersIn a scrappy encounter, New Zealand managed to quell Samoa’s attack for the majority of the first period. That said, this foray looked dangerous…until McCaw intervened:As the aforementioned McCaw turnover hinted, a virtue of breakdown play is efficient decision-making – knowing which rucks to attack and when not to waste a bullet. This is a prime example.As Pisi switches the attack and comes left off the pass of Kahn Fotuali’i, Owen Franks and Luke Romano tackle him.The fly-half is somewhat isolated with McCaw lingering. However, Fotuali’i tells Ole Avei to hit the ruck:The Samoa hooker does so, convincing McCaw to bide his time and fill in for the next phase:Paulo now continues the attack on the same route, where he is met by Whitelock:Sensing a lack of support for the Samoa runner, McCaw dives in on this occasion:Just about supporting his own bodyweight, he makes the turnover:Carter’s headline act came in setting up George Moala‘s debut try, New Zealand’s only five-pointer of the match, with a deft cross-kick.He had already warned Samoa not to become too narrow in the first half, just overcooking this chip:After half-time, the hosts were not so lucky:At the point Carter drops the ball onto his boot, we can see from the Samoans’ body angles that they are set up to stop a punchy carry in midfield.There is space out wide to be exploited, and a perfectly-weighted kick does exactly that:Grinding it outThe home stretch of a boxing bout is known as ‘the Championship rounds’. In the same way, rugby teams used to winning will regularly pull away around the hour-mark.With 58 minutes on the board in Apia, Laulala came off the bench as New Zealand were awarded a scrum. His first few seconds in Test rugby were influential:The powerful tighthead carves into the tired Samoan front-row. But watch how much effort McCaw is putting into the shove on the same side……and how he looks across to coax a penalty out of Peyper:Sure enough, the South African official obliges on the 10-metre line and Samoa’s backs are offside too, meaning a penalty inches shy of halfway.Carter strokes over to make it 22-9:Creaking…At 34 and 33 respectively, McCaw and Carter are probably past their peak. In this match, there were mistakes.Here, McCaw left the bodyguard position to let the irrepressible Faosiliva through for the break that foreshadowed his try:To begin the second period, Carter sent his restart out on the full as well:…but still convincingEven so, the pair came together to decide the game in the final minutes, opting to kick for goal following another scrum penalty: LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Every year, without fail, the vast Super 15 talent pool infatuates onlookers from the northern hemisphere. Bleary-eyed from a schedule of early morning alarms, they fall head over heels through their television sets and in love with aspiring All Blacks.This season has been no different. As the likes of Lima Sopoaga, Nehe Milner-Skudder, Nepo Laulala, James Broadhurst and Waisake Naholo have excelled, many have urged Steve Hansen to chuck them straight into the international arena.In fairness, each member of this burgeoning quintet have been fast-tracked into the New Zealand squad and should get a World Cup audition. Fabulous Fiji-born finisher Naholo is handed a run against Argentina on Friday in the Rugby Championship opener. After debuting in Samoa a fortnight ago, Laulala will bring abrasive ballast from the bench.It would be fascinating to see how all of them would fare in a Test together. There is certainly enough ability there. Hansen knows full well, though, that newbies require sturdy safety nets. Experimentation needs a bedrock of experience.Stuart Lancaster has made no secret of his desire for an aggregate total of around 600 caps across England’s starting side. Well, two icons will bring precisely 241 appearances to the All Blacks mix in Christchurch – a city that they have served wonderfully over a glittering decade and a half.Given the Pumas must also face Kieran Read, Keven Mealamu, Jerome Kaino and Ma’a Nonu, it would be unfair to say their presence is absolutely fundamental. But captain Richie McCaw and lieutenant Dan Carter remain hugely important to New Zealand while Hansen rations game-time.It is difficult to measure intangible attributes such as leadership. However, many other on-field qualities shone through in Apia.Fighting fire with fire In truth, the cultural and human aspects of a fixture in the Pacific Islands eclipsed everything else. For many reasons, the All Blacks’ trip to Samoa earlier this month was uplifting as it was essential.Actually sharing the field with 15 fired-up figures in blue and white in sweltering heat and claustrophobic humidity was never going to be fun. And so it proved. Most of the hits were eye-watering, epitomised by this thunderous early kick-return from Bath back-rower Alafoti Fa’osiliva:Such a surge should guarantee Samoa front-foot ball, but watch New Zealand wrestle gain-line ascendancy from the next phase:McCaw is central to this, first spotting the midfield wrap-around between Tusi Pisi and opposite number Jack Lam and shooting out of the line:He reaches Lam as the exchange of passes is completed:Rather than crudely clattering into an inane tackle, he slips off the collision. Remaining on his feet, he can slide across to the right and contribute to the defensive effort further out as Tim Nanai-Williams has a run:Watch what happens next:McCaw is loitering with intent on the inside track. When Nanai-Williams is tackled by Carter, he covers the potential offload to supporting left wing Alesana Tuilagi:The pass does not come and Samoa’s full-back is isolated.McCaw readjusts and makes a nuisance of himself at the breakdown – with help from a counter-rucking Carter – to force the ball loose. As the body language of referee Jaco Peyper suggests, he is perfectly legal:This was icily clinical from McCaw, and Carter brought similar composure on attack.Calm conductorAt times during a frantic Super 15 decider, the phenomenally exciting Beauden Barrett overplayed his hand. Though this phase came to nothing following a rare Read handling error, it demonstrates the meticulous organisation Carter offers:As Israel Dagg takes it up, he steps into the first receiver position past centres Sonny Bill Williams and Ryan Crotty:Carter urges them to sweep around to the openside behind a primary wave of forwards led by Sam Whitelock, where they nudge Read wider towards his favoured 15-metre channel:What follows is a classic All Blacks pattern. Carter passes to Whitelock, who threatens the gain-line and draws in tacklers before turning to find Williams.As this screenshot shows, it is particularly effective against an aggressive, pressing defensive system such as Samoa’s. From this point, as Whitelock’s pass finds Williams, New Zealand should have scored:New Zealand generally operate at a higher skill level than most other nations. Another integral facet to their success is an almost mechanical cohesion.Trap of territory This longer sequence depicts how McCaw and Carter fit into a rather unglamorous part of the All Blacks gameplan – kick-chase.We join it as New Zealand have gathered a restart and scrum-half Andy Ellis goes long from the base of a ruck:McCaw holds his depth to stay onside as his Crusaders teammate kicks:He encroaches on Nanai-Williams alongside Read after the ball is allowed to bounce, and covers a slick, left-footed step……before executing a robust tackle:Samoa manage to recycle under pressure and Pisi goes to the air:Having stayed in backfield to cover while some of his back three join the chase, Carter’s technique here is exemplary. The All Blacks head into the Rugby Championship with some exciting fresh faces, but Richie McCaw and Dan Carter remain central to Steve Hansen’s plans.last_img read more

Comments are closed. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI November 7, 2017 at 1:24 pm Our post modern, derivative theology prevalent in the church today fails to recognize the presence of evil. There is no legislation that can prevent the ultimate, violent expression of a deranged mind and a corrupt soul that is being influenced and manipulated by a truly diabolical force. There are dozens of laws already in place that theoretically should have prevented this massacre. They had no effect. This isn’t to say that we do not need to reform and correct deficiencies in our gun laws, clearly we do. Common sense gun control is essential. The types of weapons being legally sold in our country is absurd and have no justifiable connection to hunting, sport shooting or personal defense. However, the core issue is one of good vs. evil, light vs. darkness. We have allowed our culture to embrace violence, cynicism, sexual harassment and abuse, cruelty, etc. Our video games, movies, TV shows, comedy acts, Facebook interactions, Twitter posts, current political interactions, etc. contribute to this and we just go along with it. We must stop. The Bishops were right in many respects. The male dominated, machismo, multiple gun purchasing, domestically violent young male demographic is a harmful twisted misinterpretation of Christian manhood. I am saddened, angered and frustrated. I think we all realize that we have to do something to stop this.

Because he was dismissed the Air Force was required to file the dismissal with the national gun registry, which would have prevented him from purchasing guns. They neglected to do so and the shooter purchased guns in 2 states. We have strict gun laws that begin with the need to report. It has been found that there is a terrible under-reporting to the national gun registry — which is a weak point. Secondly, people need to speak up and use common sense. In many of the past acts of gun violence there were massively disturbed people who were known in their families and friend circles. Had these people been reported for deteriorated mental health — and people kept their guns locked away — there would have been a more positive difference rather than the carnage. Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook Elementary shooter, was on the autism spectrum and was battling mental health issues and his mother decided it would be good to teach him to use a gun! Nancy Lanza took him to a gun range regularly, but worse, she didn’t secure weapons at home. She paid for that with her life as Adam shot and killed her and then went on to kill 20 students and then himself. People need to use common sense! Close the gaps by reporting to the gun registry those persons disallowed under the law to buy a gun, and secondly have eyes wide open on people in families and friend circles who are mentally challenged or exhibit violent behavior. The government can’t do that for us. We have to do that.

We beseech our Creator to comfort the grieving and shield the vulnerable. Prayer is not an offering of vague good wishes. It is not a spiritual exercise that successfully completed exempts one from focusing on urgent issues of common concern. Prayer is not a dodge. In prayer we examine our own hearts and our own deeds to determine whether we are complicit in the evils we deplore. And if we are, we resolve to take action; we resolve to amend our lives.As a nation, we must acknowledge that we idolize violence, and we must make amends. Violence of all kinds denigrates humankind; it stands against the will of God and the way of Jesus the Christ. The shooting in Sutherland Springs brings the issue of domestic violence, a common thread in many mass killings, into sharp relief. It is not only essential that we keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, but that we, as a society, reject ideologies of male dominance that permeate our culture and the history of our churches.Each of us has a role to play in our repentance. Elected representatives bear the responsibility of passing legislation that protects our citizenry. If our representatives are not up to this responsibility, we must replace them.In the meantime, however, we ask that in honor of our many murdered dead, elected leaders who behave as though successive episode of mass slaughter are simply the price our nation pays for freedom stop the reflexive and corrosive repetition of the phrase “thoughts and prayers.”One does not offer prayers in lieu of demonstrating political courage, but rather in preparation.

I was taken aback by one news commentator who introduced his coverage of this horror by saying this was the deadliest mass shooting in 35 days. They have become so common place that we now number them between days of occurrence – not years, not months, but days. Our guns and the lobbies that support them are clearly idols. And, of course, we all know – or should know – that idols only give death. Those protecting this violence, for that is what they are doing, must be condemned in the strongest possible terms.

By demolishing the existing pitched roof, they have constructed what they describe as their “Cabrio apartment.”+ 29 Share CopyTo make the roof terrace they had to also rearrange every existing room in the house. According to the architects, “the roof terrace is where the master bedroom once was. The bedroom moved to where the dining room was. The dining area moved to the top floor, to the spot where previously the bathtub stood. The bathroom and kitchen changed places. The new sitting area used to be a very cold and dark storage room and what used to be the living room is now a spacious play room. The dividing room has been converted into a walk-in closet. Only the daughter’s bedroom stayed in the same place.”Their primary aim was to create a roof terrace. In order to realise this, “a big part of the original pointed roof would have to be demolished, the consequence of this being that the house would become substantially smaller. Two thirds of the roof was removed from the top floor. The front of the roof has kept its original shape, under which is now the cosy sunken sofa. In the middle of the roof a construction was created to build a transition between the original roof and the glass roofing over the terrace and, from the original part, the mid-section fans out into the rectangular construction of the roof terrace. The roof of the middle part is flat and is slightly tilted; when the weather is nice the glass roof can slide over the middle roof.”Save this picture!© Thomas MayerRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareGrespaniaPorcelain Tiles- CoverlamPorcelain StonewareCeramiche KeopeCeramic Tiles – BackPorcelain StonewareApavisaFloor Tiles – RegenerationPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – Build+ 29Featuring a “dotted staircase” by local artists VollaersZwart entitled ‘Let’s Stick Together’, the project is packed full of interesting, practical design moves perfect for a young family of their size.

Paschal softball comes up short against Martin

first_imgLinkedin Twitter Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ ReddIt Warrior errors helped the Panthers go up 3-0 in the first inning. Caroline Adair reached third on an error by the right fielder and brought in the first two runs of the game. A dropped ball by the pitcher then allowed Adair to score as well.However, the Warriors woke up in the second inning. The Warriors scored four unanswered runs, including a sacrifice fly hit by Devon Potter, allowing Lacy Mann to reach home.Things got out of hand for the Panthers in the third inning, where two errors led to five runs for the Warriors. The Panthers had no answer for that and finished the inning down 9-3.After the third, Panther head coach Sarah Dokie-Reyes switched pitcher Lydia Vidales to shortstop and brought in backup pitcher Nina Ortega to pitch the rest of the game. Dokie-Reyes said the change in pitchers was needed to switch things up on defense.“It all starts with the pitcher,” said Dokie-Reyes. “We needed to change it up, because anyone can hit a fastball. If you change the speed variations you can mix up the batters and throw them off.”The switch seemed to be working in the Panthers’ favor until the top of the fifth inning. With two outs and two runners on base, Sabrina Pecina hit one over the fence for a home run, putting Martin up 12-3.The Panthers, scoreless since the first inning, finally showed some tenacity with a solo homer by Vidales. But that didn’t help the Panthers on defense, where Ortega hit three separate batters during the game. The Warriors scored five more runs, bringing the score to 17-4.However, the Panthers refused to go down without a fight. Dokie-Reyes said her team’s relentless energy has been their greatest asset this year.“This team always has to fight for everything they get,” said Dokie-Reyes. “That’s one thing they don’t do is roll over; they don’t want to anymore. They’ll never just give up and take it.”The Panthers capitalized on errors in the sixth inning, scoring six runs and coming within seven points of the Warriors, avoiding the mercy rule and forcing a seventh inning.The Warriors were scoreless in the seventh, but the deficit ended up being too much for the Panthers. Despite one run by Summer Sadler, the Panthers couldn’t crawl back.The Panthers play their last home game of the season against Arlington Bowie Friday night at 6 p.m. The game will be the team’s senior night, the last home game for the five seniors on the team.Dokie-Reyes continues to preach discipline at the plate as being what will determine her team’s success Friday night.“Whenever you transition from this type of really good pitcher to someone who is just a little less advanced, it just comes down to discipline at the plate,” said Dokie-Reyes. “Not lunging at it, staying back, not swinging at bad pitches . . . that’s really the key to it.” Trump to appear at Fort Worth Convention Center Fort Worth to present development plan for Berry/University area near TCU Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ Joey McReynoldshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/joey-mcreynolds/ Fort Worth Firefighters Charities posts signs for drowning prevention month Twitter Linkedincenter_img The109: senior minister at University Christian Church announces resignation + posts Facebook Joey McReynolds Previous articlePaschal golf aims to advance to state finalsNext article”Stealth dorm” registration complete Joey McReynolds RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook printThe Panthers (12-8, 9-5) lost to the Warriors 17-11, leaving Martin undefeated in district play.

It is essential for the inhabitants that we should be able to continue these broadcasts.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We urge the local and national authorities to carry out a thorough investigation with the aim of identify the perpetrators and instigators of this sabotage. The government should provide 100 Plus with technical and financial assistance without delay so that it can resume broadcasting.”Serbia was ranked 64th out of 173 countries in the 2008 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.
