‘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. Changing the Present frames its offers in such a way that $1 also seems like it can go a long way.It incentivizes giving by allowing users to interact on a personal level with friends and effect positive social change with and for their friends. Giving gifts is fun (Facebook’s $1 gifts remain popular even in the face of so much free competition), so it is smart to tap into that trend.It publicizes giving. 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.”[email protected] -with files from The Canadian Presslast_img read more
