Inspirational Good Friday Concert

first_img Business News Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box. Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Join the Pasadena Presbyterian Church for its annual Good Friday Concert on March 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the church Sanctuary. This year Dr. Timothy Howard, the church’s director of music and organist, will lead the 60-voice Kirk Choir with community singers, soloists and the Friends of Music orchestra in Karl Jenkins’ poignant work The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace.Written in 1999 and premiered in 2000, the piece is essentially an anti-war piece and was commissioned by the Royal Armories Museum for London’s Millennium celebrations and dedicated to the victims of the then-ongoing Kosovo crisis. The piece moves in and out of engaging movements and motifs and offers a great variety with both tempo filled passages and moments of fantastic grandeur. Since its premiere it has become the most-performed major choral work by a living composer.The piece is based around wonderfully interwoven Bible passages, and has its foundation in the Catholic Mass. However, Jenkins also borrowed inspiration from the fifteenth century folk song “L’hommearmé” in the first and final movements. In addition, the piece includes passages from writers like Rudyard Kipling and Alfred Lord Tennyson, sung in outstanding harmonies.Interestingly, The Armed Man was one of the first major “classical” compositions by Jenkins, who began his career as a jazz and jazz-rock musician. It now holds the distinction of being the most often performed major work by any living composer.The Pasadena Presbyterian Church is located at 585 East Colorado Boulevard, corner of Madison Ave., in the Playhouse District of Pasadena.The concert is free of admission charges; a freewill offering will be taken. Information: www.ppcmusic.org Community News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes 16 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it HerbeautyHe Is Totally In Love With You If He Does These 7 ThingsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty7 Most Startling Movie Moments We Didn’t Realize Were InsensitiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThe Dos And Don’ts Of Tinder You Must KnowHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA 74 Year Old Fitness Enthusiast Defies All Concept Of AgeHerbeautyHerbeauty First Heatwave Expected Next Week Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Community Newscenter_img Your email address will not be published.

McLaughlin scores twice as Saints keep on marching in BCIHL

first_imgThe Selkirk Saints took another step in credibility after snapping the 25-game home unbeaten streak of the Simon Fraser University Clan Saturday at the Bill Copeland Sports Centre in Burnaby.Connor McLaughlin’s two first period goals powered the Saints to a 5-3 B.C. Intercolligiate League victory over the Clan.Selkirk College now holds a commanding eight-point advantage over the Clan in BCIHL standings.The win comes on the heels of a 7-4 win over Thompson Rivers University Friday at the Kamloops Memorial Arena.”We’re very pleased to have beaten an excellent team in a rink where it’s been as tough as it gets to come away with points,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “The effort we saw tonight from our whole group, top to bottom, is exactly what you need to be successful on a regular basis in our league.”Brodie Gibbon, Logan Proulx and Jackson Garret also scored for the Saints, which led 5-0 midway through the game.But SFU began to battle back on a power-play goal by 2011/12 BCIHL MVP Ben Van Lare, who went on to score twice more in the third period to pull SFU within two.That was as close as the game would get, however, as the Saints bore down late to secure the win. Netminder Alex Sirard shone for Selkirk in collecting his fifth win of the season, turning aside 39 shots on the night.His teammates chased SFU starter Graeme Gordon midway through he second period. He was replaced by Evan Kurylo, who stopped the nine shots he saw over the remainder of the game.Friday, two late second-period goals by McLaughlin, with nine seconds left in the frame, and Kam Crawford, snapped a 4-4 tie powering Selkirk to the win.Jordan Wood scored twice for the Saints with single going to Thomas Hardy, Cody Fidgett and Garrett.The Saints, 8-0,  are next in action on Friday (November 9) when they return to the Lower Mainland to face Trinity Western University.last_img read more

€6M Greencastle water upgrade complete

first_imgA vital upgrade to the Greencastle public water supply is now complete, Irish Water has confirmed.The project, which involved a €6 million investment from Irish Water, has altered the treatment of water from the Eddie Fullerton Pollan Dam to ensure better quality for the people of Greencastle.The Greencastle water treatment plant will be decommissioned and water from the Eddie Fullerton Pollan Dam will now l be treated at the Illies Water Treatment Plant before being delivered into the network supplying Greencastle and East Inishowen. The change will deliver better quality and a more reliable supply of water to the Greencastle supply, which is currently on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Remedial Action List (RAL) for elevated levels of trihalomethanes (THMs).Diane Carroll, Irish Water explained further the scope of the project: “The upgraded water supply scheme will safeguard the water supply to homes and businesses currently served by the existing Greencastle Water Treatment Plant. The supply from this plant will be replaced by the supply from the East Inishowen Regional Water Supply Scheme (RWSS). This has been enabled by an extension of the Pollan RWSS to East Inishowen, allowing the East Inishowen RWSS to now supply Greencastle.“The scope of works completed included the laying of over 10km of new water main, the construction of a new reservoir and associated booster station. This transfer of supply from the Greencastle Water Treatment plant to the Illies Water Treatment Plant will provide a more robust treatment system.” €6M Greencastle water upgrade complete was last modified: November 21st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Afrika takes top sevens accolade

first_imgThe lightning-fast Cecil Afrika saw offcompetition from two New Zealand rivalsto scoop the title of IRB Sevens RugbyPlayer of the Year.Image: International Rugby Board)MEDIA CONTACTS • Yusuf JacksonMedia manager, South African Rugby Union+27 82 739 7733Emily van RijswijckEastern Cape-born Cecil Afrika, top points and try scorer in the 2010/2011 HSBC Sevens World Series, was recently named the International Rugby Board‘s (IRB) Sevens Player of the Year.The award ceremony took place at the Vektor Arena in Auckland, New Zealand on 24 October, following the successful completion of the seventh Rugby World Cup which was won by hosts New Zealand. The awards also celebrated the 125th anniversary of the IRB.Sevens rugby fans will hardly be surprised, as the slightly built Afrika dominated the sevens rugby scene this year, despite a recurring jawbone injury which caused him to miss the Wellington leg of the tournament early in the season.Playing in the flyhalf position, pacy Afrika shone on the rugby field from a young age, where he first represented his country in the school side in 2006. In 2008 he was part of the under-20 squad which reached the third place playoff at the 2008 IRB Junior World Championships.The first tournament of the upcoming HSBC Sevens World Series season kicks off in Australia on 25 and 26 November.From there the series moves to Dubai early in December before arriving at the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality for the South African leg on 9 and 10 December.Top try scorerAfrika’s abilities overshadowed fellow nominees Tomasi Cama and Tim Mikkelson, both Kiwi players. Scoring 40 tries, the South African notched up an unrivalled 385 points, 86 more than Cama despite playing in one less tournament.The three shortlisted players were chosen by the management of all the participating teams.The 23-year-old Afrika helped South Africa secure tournament wins in Las Vegas, London and Edinburgh. But, like their counterparts in the main rugby event, the New Zealand sevens team were too strong for the competition and clinched the series with a convincing 150 points scored during the season.National sevens coach Paul Treu says Afrika’s best attribute is his ability to play consistently across all games, while his strong defence has saved many an almost-certain try.Treu remembers Afrika’s determination to make it to the top, saying that the flyhalf was not picked for the team three years ago. Despite this setback, Afrika trained with the team without a contract so that he could one day be considered.His determination paid off and he finally made his debut in the Dubai leg of the 2009/2010 series.“What he has achieved since then is just incredible and his rise through the ranks from a very humble childhood in Port Elizabeth to a star performer on the world stage is an incredible and inspiring story,” adds Treu.Arika dedicated the award to his teammates: “I am extremely proud of the award but I view it as an accolade for the team. My teammates, the coach and management all worked very hard and we endure the joy and pain together.”last_img read more

Tendulkar writes to Lorgat for changing ODI format

first_imgThe ODIs are perceived to be on the decline and it’s none other than Sachin Tendulkar who has now come out publicly in support of revamping the current 50-over format having written a letter to ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat.Tendulkar, the world’s highest run-getter in both Tests and ODIs and someone who is on the threshold of his 100th international century, wants ICC to make “a radical switch” from 50-50 to four 25-over innings.Apart from reducing the number of overs per innings, Tendulkar has also proposed several more changes for the ODIs.The Indian batting icon had spoken about this new concept in television interviews in the past but had never written a letter to ICC in this regard.”I have been capturing my thoughts on what I think would be the way forward to ensure that all three formats in the game co-exist and ensure value creation,” he wrote in the letter seen by ‘The Times’.He argued that four alternate innings of 25 overs for each side in an international would be the fairest way of balancing the advantages gained by the team that won the toss when pitch and weather conditions mean that a match can virtually be decided by the spin of a coin.Tendulkar’s letter also proposed changes in voluntary Powerplays.In each 25-over block, Tendulkar wants only two Powerplays at the behest of the batting side but suggested that up to four bowlers should be allowed up to 12 overs each, rather than the present limit of 10.advertisementOne of the prominent matches featuring India seemed to have been lost after spin of coin was 1996 Wills World Cup semi-final when Lankans batted first on a square turner.Tendulkar also cited two games in the most recent World Cup when evening dew helped England to achieve a tie in their classic qualifying game against India in Bangalore but then counted in favour of Ireland during their famous run chase against England at the same venue.A split into two equal innings a side was often proposed for the final of the domestic county competition in the UK – originally the Gillette Cup – in the days when it was invariably an advantage to field first, the report said.The hover cover, instant outfield drainage and sophisticated drying equipment have ensured that matches at Lord’s almost always start on a dry pitch these days, but that is not the case everywhere.In Australia last winter, the inter-state one-day tournament, the Ryobi Cup, was played over 45-overs-a-side, split into two alternate innings of 20 overs followed by two of 25.The format was generally rated a success by Cricket Australia (CA). There were more close finishes, more runs, more wickets and larger TV audiences.Significantly, the new regulations appeared to overcome the relatively dull and predictable middle-over phases of 50-over games.last_img read more

10 Thoughts on TCU’s 44-31 Win Over Oklahoma State

first_imgBOX SCOREWell … I can honestly say I did not see that coming. I’ve been following Oklahoma State for 32+ years, and I was legitimately blindsided by what happened on Saturday. That might sound like foolishness to some of you, but this team had the look through three games. Then on Saturday, it didn’t.Say whatever you want about Tulsa, South Alabama and Pittsburgh, but I watched those games last year. I watched them in 2015. This year’s team looked far, far better than either of those through the non-conference slate. But TCU punched them in the mouth, and a myriad of issues started stacking up faster than Joe’s cups at your college digs.The offensive line went thin, the play-calling got weird, the penalties ran rampant, nobody was open, OSU couldn’t get off the field, the mullet blew this way and that, and poof … there goes the dream season.Here are 10 thoughts on what we watched on Saturday.1. All The TurnoversMike Gundy’s teams are now 1-9 when losing the turnover battle by 3+. You’re just not going to win games when you give teams free possessions. Gundy has been one of the biggest proselytizers of TO margin in the country, and there’s a reason. When your defense is predicated on bending but giving up field goals and also getting picks and fumbles, and you don’t do that, you’re going to lose. And you’re definitely going to lose if you give it away four times on top of that.Two and a half of the turnovers were on Rudolph — not his best game, and in front of Todd McShay no less! — a half of one was on Jalen McCleskey (more on this later), another half was on the offensive line and the last half was on Mike Yurcich. If you want to blame any specific category of egregiousness, the TOs are a pretty good place to start.Also, you can throw the holding on the punt return in the first quarter as half a TO because it gave the ball back to TCU and put another three points on the board against you.2. Where Was the mid-route game?I’m no Thomas Fleming or Adam Lunt, but it seemed like everything OSU ran through the air was either 75 yards or 3 yards. Look at all that space in the middle of the field. I’m fascinated to see one of those guys break down OSU’s playcalling at the beginning of next week.There was a slight adjustment in the second half when Rudolph started tossing those little 12-yard outs to Marcell Ateman, but props to TCU for taking away everything OSU wanted to do in the passing game. And the opposite of props to OSU for adjusting. (In retrospect, this quote might have been a tad premature!)3. Offensive Line DepletionInjuries, they’re part of football. But OSU was without starting RT Zach Crabtree, starting RG Larry Williams, and eventually backup RT Teven Jenkins even got hurt. TCU sacked Rudolph three times, hurried him twice (only because he was scrambling like Mike Vick in his prime) and disrupted pretty much everything OSU tried to do offensively.Playing a football game without half your line (all on the same side) is like trying to eat nuggets with dipping sauce from Chick-fil-A without your hands. You can do it, but it’s going to be messy, and it’s not going to look very pretty.Said it since the start of the season, it doesn’t matter who the QB is or how good the WRs are. OL is the whole show. Can’t block can’t win.— Evan Epstein (@EvanEpstein60) September 23, 20174. They tried to Ride JusticeI really liked what OSU tried to do with Justice Hill. Lots of delayed handoffs, quick pitches up the middle and other sleight of hand. But it also felt like they rode him too hard too early in the game. Also, why not J.D. King? Hill had 25 carries for 102 yards, and I get that he’s your best dude, but Chris Carson feasted on TCU last season, and it felt like King could have done the same.5. On That WR-WR PassPhilosophically, I get it. I talked to Mrs. Pistols (of all people!) about the McCleskey2Stoner pass after the game. She said something like, “well you’re swinging for the fences there … it’s either going to be all glory or it’s going to be what happened.”Unfortunately it was the latter.OK State, what are you doing? pic.twitter.com/xvkP3Lhj2u— Deadspin (@Deadspin) September 23, 2017Here’s the thing: I didn’t hear many people complaining that OSU put freshman Dillon Stoner at QB at the end of the Central Michigan game last year … mostly because it worked. It was the right time for the throwback pass to succeed, too. Rudolph rolling, catch TCU napping, etc.I know it’s incredibly easy to make fun of Yurcich in that specific situation, and it’s probably deserved. But we always always always get on Gundy for OSU being too conservative. Yurcich orchestrates a 4th-quarter comeback that includes a WR-WR pass, and they’d erect a statue of him outside of Eskimo Joe’s.Part of me blames McCleskey (throw it away), and part of me is fine with the whole thing. Maybe that’s stupid of me, and it sure looked like a ridiculous play in the moment, but at least we can’t say he left any plays in the playbook (other than 15-yard throws over the middle)!6. Kenny Hill StinksI’m sorry, I just don’t think he’s very good, although OSU made him look like an All-Big 12 player at times. He throws about one out of every six passes on target and thinks he’s got enough arm to go into double coverage up 10 on the road at the end of the half.OSU did a really poor job of containing him as well as TCU in general on third downs (this is where you come for the top-shelf analysis, I know). The Frogs were 11/19 on third-down conversions ?, and with open space like this, it’s easy to see why. Your defense has to be better than letting Kenny Hill beat you at home.7. Get off the fieldI thought Oklahoma State had a chance to flip the game about three different times in the third and fourth quarters. Every time I thought it, they faced a 3rd and 6 or 3rd and 4 or 3rd and 9, and they could not get themselves off the field. Part of that is because TCU ran 85 plays and OSU was tired, but this defense was supposed to be made up of line changes like a hockey team.It certainly didn’t look the part on Saturday and gave up 3.4 points per drive. Also, TCU didn’t punt until the middle of the 4th quarter.Does Glenn Spencer stink? I don’t think so. OSU has given up 19 first quarter points in its last eight games, and its PPD numbers this year have been spectacular. The pass rush to me has left a lot to be desired, and they didn’t put Trill in enough situations where he could make Trill-like decisions. It all starts with the defensive and offensive lines, and OSU wasn’t good enough in either on Saturday.8. Felt Weird from the startThe entire first quarter had a bizarre feel to it. From the insane punt penalty that somehow gave TCU the ball back (I was told it was because the penalty came before the actual punt) to stopping the game because the refs thought Hill hit the ESPN skycam with one of his passes (that’s how bad of a ball he throws!) to TCU running 29 plays to OSU’s 8, the entire thing felt out of OSU’s control.Part of me wonders if Oklahoma State should stop deferring and just start taking the ball first in these games. Get the rock. Set the tone. Make everybody else adjust to you. Maybe that’s all kinds of revisionist history, but they’ve been intent on scoring on opening drives all year. It never really felt like they had their hands around this game.In fact, halftime felt a lot like halftime of the Texas A&M game in 2011. Unfortunately the second half did not feel even close to the same.9. Breaks to go 12-0TCU fumbled three times, and they recovered all three of them. Kenny Hill was about as ack-rut as a blind man in a field with a shotgun but only one of his passes found the hands of Oklahoma State’s DBs. These are the tiny nuances within the games that affect entire seasons and program trajectories.It takes a looooot of breaks to go 12-0 in a season, and OSU didn’t get many on Saturday (and didn’t help itself when it did). It’s pretty easy to say “fire that dude” or “the refs blew it,” but what if the ball that sat at the middle of the field for 3 seconds when Hill fumbled it had been recovered by OSU? Or what if Gundy shuts down the McCleskey pass? Or what if they get a good kickoff at the very end of the game? Or what if the call at the goal line is reversed?That’s not a TD! pic.twitter.com/uGLV7CkHHf— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) September 23, 2017So many tiny moments are so affecting. I thought OSU was good enough to overcome those, but maybe I was wrong.10. Looking to the FutureOklahoma State is still a really, really good football team. I’ll believe that until they prove otherwise over an extended period of time.It’s one thing to play your best game and not have the goods. It’s another thing to turn it over four times, incur eight penalties for 80 yards and recover 0/3 fumbles from the other team and still be in it 57 minutes in.Remember 2013 when they lost at WVU and everybody wanted Ben Grogan tarred and feathered? That season should have ended in a Big 12 title. Or how about last year after the Baylor loss? I saw “going back to the Heart of Dallas Bowl” tweets for days. Still played for the Big 12 title.What happened on Saturday is pretty similar to what happened last year against Baylor (in my opinion, from an outsider looking in).This team can do the same thing those two teams did. Will it? Who knows. There are so many variables that go into a special college football season. Injuries are one of them. OSU needs to get healthy and stay healthy. Breaks are another. They’ve gotten a boatload over the past two years, and they didn’t on Saturday.But everything is still out in front of them. I got laughed at last year for telling Carson on a podcast that it felt a little 2013ish after the Baylor game. Run the table, see what happens in December. Laughed at!I think that can happen again. Win ’em all, and you’re Big 12 champs and possibly still in the CFB Playoff. Again, I realize this sounds as preposterous as it did when I said it last year. But this team is built to withstand some adversity. That’s what good programs do, and this is a good program.Contrary to what the good people of Twitter World are telling you, Mike Yurcich does not suck. Mason Rudolph is still elite. OSU still has the best WR in the country. Its defense has to be better, yes, and they need to reorganize themselves on the offensive and defensive lines. There’s a lot to work on.So it’s one at a time now, but that’s how it was always going to be anyway.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.
