‘Everyone agrees’ at club on Liverpool player, Reds hoping to make…

first_imgAged 29 and starting just 29% of Liverpool’s Premier League games, it might be time for Dejan Lovren to find himself a new club where he can start week in, week out. Luckily for him, Lazio in Italy are reportedly looking for a new ‘top’ defender this summer, and the Croatia international is the latest profile to be added to their list.The news comes from Il Messaggero in Italy, who claim ‘everyone agrees’ the centre-back fits the kind of player the club are looking for, ideal to slot in right next to Francesco Acerbi.Liverpool are said to have given Lovren the green light to talk to club after the Champions League, with a view to making somewhere between €10-12m from the defender’s sale, whom they bought off Southampton for £22.8m back in 2014.Embed from Getty ImagesThe Reds’ relationship with Lazio is said to be good after successful talks for Lucas Leiva and Luis Alberto in the past, even if the whole Bobby Adekanye situation wasn’t ideal.Five years and a contract extension later, it seems the Reds and the 29-year-old are finally ending their adventure together, although the defender probably won’t be short of offers, with Napoli and Milan also said to be taking a look at him.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoDating.comTung Chung is actually full of single men.

Virtual Gifts That Mean Something with Changing the Present

first_imgTags:#web josh catone 1 Many of Facebook’s users are young, and $1 is a small enough amount that it seems like an affordable way to give to charity.

It will be harder for people to receive a gift without returning the sentiment when it is tied to a worthy progressive cause, and the $1 price tag means nearly all of Facebook’s users can afford an in kind response.It is interesting to see how non-profits are utilizing web 2.0 sites and ideas to socialize giving and raise money. Changing the Present is tapping into Facebook in a smart way that could raise a lot of money for non-profit causes, especially with the holiday season fast approaching.Update: Allen Stern points me to a video he made of Changing the Present presenting their Facebook app at the NY Tech Meetup last week over on CenterNetworks.

Bishops to clarify Popes refusal to apologize for residential schools at 100ET

first_imgAPTN NewsOTTAWA – The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops will hold a news conference in Ottawa Wednesday and explain Pope Francis’ position on the church’s role in Indian residential schools and why he won’t apologize.APTN News will carry the news conference LIVE on its Facebook page: APTN News FacebookAccording to a release sent out Tuesday, the Bishops say it’s incorrect to suggest that Francis is refusing to apologize to survivors of Canada’s notoriously abusive residential schools.The conference has sent a background paper to MPs and senators in a bid to clarify what it characterizes as “misunderstandings and factual errors” in media reports about the Pope’s decision not to personally apologize for the role played by the Roman Catholic Church in operating the schools.The paper suggests that under the church’s decentralized structure, it’s not appropriate for the Pope to apologize, that it’s best left to Canadian bishops to pursue engagement and reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.A papal apology was one of 94 Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.See Call to Action #58 here: TRCLate last month, Bishop Lionel Gendron, president of the conference of bishops, issued a letter to Indigenous Peoples in Canada, indicating that “after carefully considering the request and extensive dialogue with the bishops of Canada, (the Pope) felt that he could not personally respond.”That letter disappointed Indigenous leaders and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who had personally asked Pope Francis during a visit to the Vatican last year to consider an apology; it also prompted the NDP to propose a motion _ supported by the governing Liberals and expected to be debated in the House of Commons this week _ calling on the bishops to invite Pope Francis to come to Canada to apologize.In the background paper sent this week, the conference of bishops says neither the Holy See nor the conference were involved in running the residential schools. But it says the 50 “autonomous” Roman Catholic entities that did operate schools have publicly apologized, both collectively and individually, and paid nearly $60 million in compensation and other payments under a 2006 settlement agreement.Moreover, the paper notes that the conference of bishops has “on a number of occasions expressed regret and remorse at the involvement by various Catholics” in the schools.As well, Pope Benedict met with a delegation of Indigenous leaders in 2009 “and expressed sorrow and regret for the abuses suffered” in the schools. At that time, the paper notes that Phil Fontaine, then national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, declared that the meeting with Pope Benedict “closes the circle of reconciliation.”“To suggest that the Catholic community has not accepted responsibility for its involvement in residential schools is simply inaccurate. The Catholic Church has apologized in the way it is structured,” the paper says.As for Pope Francis, the paper says he’s encouraging Canadian bishops to “continue taking leadership and assuming their proper role” in pursuing reconciliation and he “remains open to a future visit when it is opportune.”“Sharing in the pain of Indigenous Peoples, he would certainly ensure such a visit includes meaningful encounters with them.”news@aptn.ca -with files from The Canadian Presslast_img read more

US Supreme Court To Hear Case Over Whether Texas Congressional And House

first_imgShelby Knowles for The Texas TribuneThe U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on June 7, 2017.Further extending a drawn-out legal battle, the U.S. Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear a case over whether Texas’ congressional and House district boundaries discriminate against voters of color. The high court’s decision to take the case is a short-term win for Texas’ Republican leaders who, in an effort to preserve the maps in question, had appealed two lower court rulings that invalidated parts of the state’s maps. If the high court had declined to take the case, Texas would have been forced to redraw the maps to address several voting rights violations. The Supreme Court’s decision to weigh that appeal will further delay any redrawing efforts even after almost seven years of litigation between state attorneys and voting and minority rights groups that challenged the maps. It’s unclear when the court will schedule oral arguments in the case, which is formally known as Abbott v. Perez.In ruling against the maps last year, a three-judge panel in San Antonio sided with the voting and minority rights groups who accused Republican lawmakers of discriminating against voters of color, who tend to vote for Democrats, in drawing the maps. The state has denied targeting voters by race and admitted instead to practicing partisan gerrymandering by overtly favoring Republicans in drawing the districts.The panel specifically flagged two congressional districts and nine House districts in four counties as problematic. But the Supreme Court in September temporarily blocked the lower court rulings — and any efforts to redraw the maps — in two 5-4 decisions as it considered the appeal from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.The San Antonio panel had ruled in August that Hispanic voters in Congressional District 27, represented by U.S. Rep. Blake Farenthold, R-Corpus Christi, were “intentionally deprived of their opportunity to elect a candidate of their choice.” And Congressional District 35 — a Central Texas district represented by Democrat Lloyd Doggett of Austin — was deemed “an impermissible racial gerrymander” because lawmakers illegally used race as the predominant factor in drawing it.On the House side, the panel ruled that Texas needed to address violations in Dallas, Nueces, Bell and Tarrant counties where it said lawmakers diluted the strength of voters of color. In some cases, the judges found that lawmakers intentionally undercut minority voting power “to ensure Anglo control” of legislative districts.Citing the need to provide election administrators with clarity on district boundaries, the state had argued in legal briefs that the Supreme Court risked throwing “the Texas election deadlines into chaos” if it allowed the redrawing of the state’s maps to move forward prior to the March primary vote. The minority rights groups suing the state had formally asked the high court to dismiss the state’s appeal. They argued that “the right to legal districts prevails” when choosing between delaying electoral deadlines and addressing “voters’ ongoing harm” under the current maps.“After six years in litigation, we welcome swift action from the highest court in the land,” said state Rep. Rafael Anchia, a Democrat and chairman of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus, which is a plaintiff in the case. “We are hopeful that the court will provide justice to voters and agree that discrimination will not be tolerated in our elections.”A spokeswoman for the Texas attorney general’s office said they’d comment on the case shortly.The state’s currents maps, which have been in place for the past three election cycles, were adopted by the Legislature in 2013. They’re largely based on temporary maps drawn by the three-judge panel in San Antonio amid legal wrangling over the maps lawmakers drew in 2011.The 2011 maps, which the San Antonio judges also ruled were drawn to weaken the strength of Hispanic and black voters, never took effect. But the panel ruled that the intentional discrimination behind the 2011 maps carried over into the 2013 maps in places where district boundaries were unchanged.The high court did not act on the Texas Democratic Party’s request to revive a legal claim over partisan gerrymandering — a redistricting strategy that until recently was deemed acceptable. The high court last year heard arguments in a Wisconsin case over the limits of partisan gerrymandering and whether extreme practices can be deemed unconstitutional. A ruling in that case is pending. The court has also agreed to consider a partisan gerrymandering case out of Maryland.Hanging over the Texas case is the possibility that the state will be placed back under federal oversight of its elections laws.A barrage of court rulings last year — including the two redistricting rulings handed down last August — have forced Texas leaders to confront whether they strayed too far in enacting voting laws found to have disproportionately burdened people of color.For decades under the Voting Rights Act, Texas was a on a list of states needing the federal government’s approval of election laws, a safeguard for minority voting rights called preclearance. The Supreme Court wiped clean that list in 2013, but it left open the possibility that future, intentional discrimination could lead to a return to preclearance. Sharelast_img read more
