Pope Francis invited to address US Congress

Pope Francis invited to address US Congress

first_imgPope Francis could become the first pontiff ever to address Congress after being offered a historic invitation by US House leaders on Thursday.House Speaker John Boehner sent a formal, open invitation to the pontiff, who on Thursday marked the first anniversary of his election to lead the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics. Boehner’s office said the Vatican had yet to respond to the invite.Boehner in a statement lauded Francis’s popular message of mercy and serving the poor and how it transcended religious and cultural differences.“Pope Francis has inspired millions of Americans with his pastoral manner and servant leadership, challenging all people to lead lives of mercy, forgiveness, solidarity, and humble service,” Boehner said in a statement.“His tireless call for the protection of the most vulnerable among us — the ailing, the disadvantaged, the unemployed, the impoverished, the unborn — has awakened hearts on every continent.”No date was mentioned in the invitation, but reports have said the pope hopes to visit the United States next year to attend a global conference on families in Philadelphia in September.Top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi, who attended Francis’s inauguration last year at the Vatican, said she was pleased that the pope would be able to bring his message directly to Americans. Pelosi, like Boehner, is Catholic.Pope Francis, everyone’s favorite pope, also has an open invitation from Laura Chinchilla to visit the Costa Rica.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “No,” he said. “It’s just raw emotion.”Follow Craig Morgan on Twitter – / 21 GLENDALE, Ariz. — When Cardinals outside linebacker Chandler Jones discusses the joy of the sack, the double meaning is intended.“It’s right up there with sex,” Jones said, laughing. “They’re both very high on the list.”Jones isn’t concerned with which one ranks higher.“I can’t compare them,” he said. “One’s work and one is pleasure.” Chandler Jones pressuring the quarterback at training camp. (Adam Green)center_img Jones understands his role clearly, and aside from winning and the aforementioned, extra-curricular activity, there is nothing he would rather do than sack the quarterback.“It’s a great feeling, honestly,” he said “You get an adrenaline rush after driving the quarterback into the grass.”Of the 36 sacks Jones has recorded, two stand out. Last season, he was double-teamed in Miami.“It was a three-man rush and they had an eight-man protection,” he said. “I split between two guys and I sacked Ryan Tannehill. I liked that move.”Then there was the sack he produced in Super Bowl XLIX in Glendale.“There’s nothing like a Super Bowl sack, and now I’m playing in that same stadium,” he said. “I was actually playing a 4-technique, a defensive end in a 3-4. I got off the ball quick and I just beat my guy off the ball, swiped him, ran Russell Wilson down and got up and did a little dance.”Jones always has a gameplan for how he’s going to attack an offensive line, but much of that plan evolves over the course of a game.“First, you look at alignments, then assignments then it’s about execution,” he said. “A lot of times, you have everything in your mind that you want to do but it almost never goes as planned. “With good offensive tackles, they change their sets so I’m more of a reactionary rusher — whatever they give I take. I go through a series of moves depending on what he gives, and then I’ll decide this is what I need to do because this is his weak point. I don’t care how good you are, you’re going to have some weak points in your game and throughout that first half I’m trying to find it, if I don’t know it already.”Jones always knows when he’s in an opponent’s head.“Not after the first time you beat a guy, but for me, after I beat a guy inside a couple times I know, ‘now I’ve got this guy,’” he said. “For an offensive lineman to give away his inside, that’s the cardinal sin. If you can do that you have him right where you want him.”Some players rehearse their sack dances ahead of time for maximum choreography. Jones is an ad-libber who normally opts for spontaneous celebrations.“I know a lot of people try to brainstorm and plot them out, but mostly I just try to do whatever comes to mind or whatever I saw that looked cool the week before,” he said.When Jones finally reaches his goal, he said there are no words to describe the joy feels after recording a sack. Comments   Share   If everything goes according to plan for Jones this season, he’ll be drawing a great deal of pleasure from his work. The Cardinals acquired the 26-year-old pass rushing specialist in March for underachieving guard Jonathan Cooper and a second-round pick. The team had been looking to add a young, elite pass rusher for the past several seasons, but that commodity is one of the most difficult to find.“He’s long and he’s everything that you thought he was,” coach Bruce Arians said Sunday. “He’s a great worker. I’m glad he’s on our team right now. I think he’s going to have a great year.”In four NFL seasons, Jones has 36 sacks, including a career-high 12.5 last season for New England. The chance for Jones, defensive end Calais Campbell and outside linebacker Markus Golden to play off each other this season has the trio dreaming of the endless opportunities ahead.“Oh yeah,” Campbell said. “The sky is the limit this year and it could really be a big year for all of us.“Chandler and I will probably get a lot of protections sliding our way, but then Markus has been dominant on the other side as well so when you have a team full of guys who are playmakers, you just pick your poison. You can only stop so many of us.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 0 Comments   Share   TEMPE, Ariz. — When speaking Sunday about Carson Palmer’s status for his team’s Thursday night matchup with the San Francisco 49ers, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians made it clear the veteran was unlikely to be ready to go.Palmer suffered a concussion in the fourth quarter of the team’s 17-13 loss to the Rams, and at that point was entered into the league’s protocol for such injuries.“Probably not, probably not,” Arians said then when asked if Palmer could play against the 49ers if he is healthy by Thursday evening. “We’ll be very, very careful with this injury. It’s not like a sore wrist or a sore shoulder.” From there, it’s all a matter of the player no longer displaying or suffering from any effects, at which point they will be cleared to return to practice and then, as long as that goes well, game action.Palmer has a ways to go before that can be a possibility, but at the same time, Arians said he would not be surprised if his starter was in fact able to play.“Nothing surprises me with these guys getting healthy, anymore,” he said.Arians went on to say Palmer was going to do the physical activity part of the process on Monday, and because of that if things go well, the chance for him to play is there.The coach said Palmer sounded good when he spoke with him Sunday night, adding that he spoke mostly to Palmer’s wife. But, his QB did have something to say.“He said ‘I’m OK, don’t worry about it,’” Arians said. “And that’s about it.”In four games this season, Palmer has completed 90-of-153 passes for 1,150 yards with six touchdowns and five interceptions. His numbers are not what they were last season, when he was in the conversation for league MVP, but with the Cardinals at 1-3, having him on the field Thursday would be ideal.If Palmer is unable to go, Stanton will get the nod for his first start since the 2014 season, when he also played in relief of an injured Palmer. Arians and the players have expressed nothing but confidence in him, with the coach saying Monday that the game plan would not change one bit if Palmer isn’t available. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “They’re so similar and we don’t have to change anything when he’s in there,” he said.And even if Palmer does not get on the practice field Tuesday or Wednesday, Arians now says that would not necessarily prevent him from suiting up on Thursday.“No, he doesn’t (have to practice),” he said. “He doesn’t practice on Wednesdays anyway. It’s not like they’re doing something he hasn’t seen before. He’d be more than ready to go.”When the clock reached zero on Sunday’s loss, the idea that Stanton would be starting seemed all but certain. But less than a day later there is a chance Palmer could be ready, which Arians said is encouraging.“Yeah,” he said. “From what I thought yesterday, I thought there was no chance.”Follow Adam Green on Twitter Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (3) throws under pressure from Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald (99) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 2, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) That made sense — concussions are a very tricky and delicate thing to deal with. Some dissipate quickly, whereas some are difficult to shake.But on Monday, after his team finished a walk-through to begin their week, the coach had a decidedly different and more optimistic tone with regards to Palmer, who is still in the protocol.“He got better last night and improved,” Arians said. “I talked to him last night and his wife, and like I’ve said, it’s all up to the doctors.”Palmer’s backup, Drew Stanton, also got a sense that the QB is doing better.“I did,” he said. “I think that Carson is a true professional. He is one of those guys that is going to do everything in his power to get ready to play whenever the next time comes.”To prepare for Palmer’s potential absence, the Cardinals reportedly have signed quarterback Zac Dysert off the practice squad to add depth behind Stanton.At 1-3, the sooner Palmer gets back on the field, the better. But it’s not up to him or the team.The concussion protocol states that when a potential concussion is identified the player should be immediately removed from the field, which Palmer was. From there, the team’s physician as well as an unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant will review video of the play and perform a focused neurological exam. If at that point there is suspicion of a concussion, the player will be taken to the locker room for a full assessment, and at that point it’s a matter of no longer displaying symptoms from the injury — while participating in some physical activity — before being allowed to return.

Coops last CEO says Europe was worried about state links

Coops last CEO says Europe was worried about state links

first_imgEuropean bank supervisors used the co-op bank to put pressure on the government on matters like the foreclosure legislation, former CEO Nicolas Hadjiyiannis told an inquiry on Wednesday, the second consecutive day he appeared before the panel probing the lender’s collapse.Hadjiyiannis was responding to a question regarding political interference in the Cooperative Central Bank, nationalised in 2013, and whether European supervisors, the single supervisory mechanism (SSM) had expressed concern.The former CEO said Europeans were concerned over the co-op bank’s connection to the state because it was also the object of political squabbling. This could only have been solved through privatisation and the CCB was ready for that in the first half of 2017.Hadjiyiannis said the lender was bound to have governance problems since it was starting from zero but it appeared the SSM were allergic to it being a state entity. However, being a state bank was a way of exercising pressure on the state on broader issues like the foreclosures, he added.The co-op sector was recapitalised with some €1.7bn following the island’s bailout in 2013. It came close to the brink of collapse early in 2018 before certain parts were sold to Hellenic Bank while over €6bn in non-performing loans were moved to an asset management company.Hadjiyiannis said the CCB was adequately capitalised in June 2017, with high liquidity and NPL provisions.However, he said, the parameters of calculating provisions changed in the next nine months and supervisors asked for around €800m in provisions based on an audit.He said the bank had passed the stress tests but they changed the parameters, eliminating the value of the collateral linked with primary residencies.The move was linked to the banks’ inability to move on collateral due to the weak legal framework passed by parliament.The European Commission made the approval of the sale of the co-op to Hellenic conditional to Cyprus making its foreclosure and insolvency framework more effective.Hadjiyiannis will appear before the panel again on Thursday. You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoThrone: Free Online GamesIf You’re Over 40 And Own A Computer, This Game Is A Must!Throne: Free Online GamesUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

BoC chairman warns of risk of new financial crisis

BoC chairman warns of risk of new financial crisis

first_imgBy Annette ChrysostomouAlthough the European banking sector is safer now than it was 10 years ago, there is always the risk of another financial crisis, Bank of Cyprus (BoC) chairman Josef Ackermann said on Friday“Banks are better regulated now, they have come a long way, but they are not safe enough. The reform of the banking sector is incomplete,” Ackermann said in an address to the 9th Limassol Economic Forum.“Many people agree that there is a risk of a new crisis, though we cannot tell when, where and how it would happen,” he added.Speakers from both Cyprus and abroad addressed more than 400 senior executives from Cyprus at the Forum, speaking on a range of topics with the goal of improving the current regional economic climate.Ackermann said that additional EU regulations, such as the Minimum Requirements for own funds and Eligible Liabilities (MREL) would be particularly demanding and damaging for small banks in the EU, including Cyprus.He referred to the different policy response to the 2009 financial crisis between the US and Europe, which brought the US banks to a better position compared with their European counterparts.“The American regulatory response was very different from that chosen by Europe, and I think, Europe is paying and will continue to pay a high price for this,” he said.The Swiss banker said that while the Trump administration in the US was relaxing regulations which tilts the balance of the regulatory burden between the European and the US banking systems further in favour of the latter, local regulators plans to enforce new rules, such as MREL.MREL, the Minimum Requirements for own funds and Eligible Liabilities, will be particularly demanding and damaging for small banks, including Cypriot banks, he said.Ackermann noted that European Banks remained vulnerable as reform of the banking sector was incomplete, the arrangements for bank resolution are not yet fully settled while the European Deposit Insurance Scheme has not yet been agreed, due to concerns raised by some key EU countries.He also called “for a judicious balance between micro-prudential regulations and strict financial stability on the one hand, and consideration of the role banks can and should play in promoting growth on the other,” noting that excessive emphasis on maximising financial stability through new provisions and capital increases could unduly undermine bank profitability and the banking system’s capability to contribute to growth.“Low or negative bank profitability is not conducive to new capital injections by existing or new bank shareholders. A balanced approach would allow banks to expand credit, promote growth and contribute to capital increases through internal organic profit generation,” the former Deutsche Bank chief said.He also said there was no evidence of a strong commitment by European policy makers to the global competitiveness of a key industry such as the financial industry, for example by resolutely promoting a common banking market that would make cross-border mergers more attractive. “There is still time for a reversal. But not for long,” he noted. In his welcome address, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades also spoke of the important role of the EU and suggested forming a strong Pan-European banking sector.“We do need stronger foundations for our banking sector and we need significant consolidation,” Georgiades said. “Pan-European banks would be something I would support. But such steps take time.  And the implementation of the Banking Union should not follow a path of bureaucratic rigidity, but instead a street-smart, efficient and adaptive approach.”Also speaking was Gavin Hewitt, Chairman of the Forum and former chief correspondent of BBC News, who stressed the importance of Brexit for Cyprus, as nearly 10 per cent of all Cyprus exports are to the UK. He also pointed out the urgent need to adjust to the fact that an increasing number of jobs are lost to the rise in technology, noting that in the past 20 years a huge number of jobs have already been replaced by robots.In a lively speech titled “Grave New World”, UK economist Stephen D. King addressed globalisation and automation, saying the loss of jobs was one reason the western world was disenchanted with globalisation. “Matters such as automation, which is forever speeding up, are not something which can easily be dealt with by “waving a magic wand”, he warned.Manfred Bergmann from the European Commission, on a more positive note, mentioned that countries, including Cyprus, have significantly improved their economies. He believes however, the recovery has reached its peak and not enough is done to prepare for worse times. “The sun is shining, but the roof isn’t fixed yet,” is how he put it. “In good times it is time to fix the roof.”The ninth consecutive year of what is considered to be the biggest and most prestigious business gathering in Cyprus took place at the Four Seasons Hotel. The Limassol Economic Forum is an annual event where the latest trends and developments in global politics and economies in Europe and the Eastern Mediterranean are discussed. The Forum engages political, economic, business and academic leaders alike in wide-ranging presentations.(CNA contributed to this article)You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityWe protect our home with earthquake insuranceCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Our View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
