Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service] El obispo primado Michael Curry suspendió el 1 de agosto la autoridad del obispo J. Jon Bruno de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles sobre [la iglesia de] Santiago el Mayor [St. James the Great] en Newport Beach, California.La decisión del Obispo Primado, que incluye colocar a Santiago el Mayor en la jurisdicción del obispo coadjutor de Los Ángeles John Taylor, se produjo mientras la Iglesia Episcopal aguarda el dictamen definitivo del tribunal eclesiástico [o panel de audiencias] que contempla actualmente la imposición de una sanción disciplinaria contra Bruno.La más extensa restricción parcial tiene por objeto marcar una hoja de ruta que esclarezca y respete el debido papel y autoridad de Taylor y el Comité Permanente así como del proceso disciplinario del Título IV y del tribunal, según un comunicado de prensa de la Oficina de Relaciones Públicas de la Iglesia Episcopal.“Es mi esperanza que esta decisión ayudará a propiciar pasos positivos hacia el acuerdo y la reconciliación”, dijo Curry en el comunicado.La orden de Curry se suma a la que emitió a fines de junio en la que restringía parcialmente el ministerio de Bruno, específicamente su potestad de vender la propiedad inmobiliaria de Santiago el Mayor.Los cinco miembros del tribunal redactaron un dictamen a mediados de julio, en el cual requerían la suspensión de Bruno del ministerio ordenado por un período de tres años debido a conducta impropia.Ellos llegaron a la conclusión, en un veredicto de 4 a favor y 1 uno en contra, de que “el alcance y gravedad de la conducta impropia del obispo Bruno… han perturbado injusta e innecesariamente el ministerio de una misión de la Iglesia”.Curry citó esa propuesta de dictamen en su decisión del 1 de agosto.“Mi revisión del dictamen y de los resultados factuales que lo sostienen, así como mi interpretación independiente de las relaciones profundamente alteradas entre las partes respectivas, me han llevado a abrigar preocupaciones adicionales acerca de que Bruno ejerza cualquier aspecto de su autoridad episcopal sobre la congregación de Santiago [el Mayor], su ‘vicaria’ o la propiedad inmobiliaria o personal de Santiago [el Mayor] mientras este asunto esté pendiente en el proceso del Artículo IV”, escribió el Obispo Primado.“En mi opinión, cualquier ejercicio de más general autoridad del obispo Bruno sobre la congregación de Santiago [el Mayor] en tanto el asunto del Título IV esté pendiente, incluido un proceso de apelación posiblemente prolongado cuando cualquier suspensión u otra sanción disciplinaria no se encuentre en vigor, puede amenazar el buen orden y bienestar de la iglesia”.Él señaló que quería “crear espacio” para que Taylor y el Comité Permanente ejerzan sus ministerios de restauración y reconciliación dentro de la diócesis, y traten de resolver los problemas que rodean a la congregación de Santiago el Mayor y su edificio.“Con la imposición de esta restricción, insto al liderazgo diocesano a avanzar vigorosamente hacia la reconciliación por el bien del ministerio del Evangelio”, escribió Curry.Taylor más tarde emitió un comunicado “comprometiéndose a hacer todo lo que podamos a fin de aprovechar esta oportunidad para lograr una salida justa por el bien de toda nuestra comunidad diocesana”.“La decisión del Obispo Primado permite a la Rda. Dra. Rachel Anne Nyback, presidente del Comité Permanente, a sus compañeros miembros del comité y a mí proseguir devotamente para promover la verdad, el diálogo abierto y la reconciliación en asuntos que han distraído a nuestra diócesis durante muchos meses y a hacerlo así sin esperar una resolución definitiva de los cargos contra nuestra obispo J. Jon Bruno”, dijo Taylor.Bruno cerró la congregación hace casi dos años después de que los miembros objetaran su infructuoso intento en 2015 de vender la propiedad de Santiago el Mayor a un promotor de condominios por $15 millones en efectivo. La congregación ha estado reuniéndose para el culto en un salón del ayuntamiento de Newport Beach. Su estatus canónico con la diócesis se encuentra en un limbo.El intento de venta tuvo lugar menos de 18 meses después de que Bruno reabriera Santiago el Mayor a fines de 2013, luego de recuperar la propiedad mediante una demanda legal provocada por una ruptura de la congregación. Otras tres congregaciones de la diócesis también se dividieron en disputas acerca de la plena inclusión de personas LGBTQ en la vida de la Iglesia.El empeño subsecuente de vender a Santiago el Mayor a una inmobiliaria llevó a los miembros de la congregación a presentar acusaciones de conducta impropia contra Bruno, alegando que violaba los Cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal. Una audiencia sobre estas acusaciones tuvo lugar en marzo.Bruno siguió intentando vender la propiedad incluso después de esa audiencia. Esas gestiones, que el obispo trató de ocultar, le ganaron una amonestación del tribunal en junio. El tribunal le dijo a Bruno que tenía que dejar de intentar vender la propiedad durante el proceso disciplinario. Si lo intentaba, o lo llevaba a cabo, antes de que el tribunal decidiera el caso original en contra suya, esa conducta sería “desestabilizadora, dilatoria y por otra parte contraria a la integridad de este procedimiento”, le dijo el tribunal en ese momento. La nota decía que lo mismo se aplicaría si dejaba de brindarle al tribunal la información requerida respecto a sus acusaciones. Tal conducta viola la porción del derecho canónico que rige la conducta de clérigos que enfrentan acciones disciplinarias (Canon IV.13.9(a) página 151 aquí).Pocos días después, Curry impuso su restricción inicial al ministerio de Bruno.La apelación de Bruno a las sanciones del tribunal no prosperó.La propuesta de dictamen de 91 páginas rechaza específicamente que Bruno sea depuesto o expulsado del ministerio ordenado. Dice que durante los tres años de suspensión Bruno no podría ejercer ninguna autoridad sobre “la propiedad inmobiliaria o personal o los asuntos temporales de la Iglesia”. Una suspensión de tres años situaría a Bruno más allá de la fecha de su jubilación obligatoria en noviembre de 2018, cuando cumpla 72 años.La propuesta de dictamen, que no es final, también insta a la diócesis a dejar que los miembros de Santiago el Mayor regresen a su inmueble.La propuesta de dictamen recuenta meticulosamente el testimonio y las pruebas que el tribunal revisó. Esencialmente respalda las alegaciones de los demandantes de Santiago el Mayor de que Bruno violó los cánones de la Iglesia porque:No obtuvo el consentimiento del comité permanente diocesano antes de suscribir un acuerdo para vender la propiedad.Desfiguró su intención respecto a la propiedad ante los miembros, el clero y la comunidad local en generalExpuso falsamente que Santiago el Mayor no era una congregación sostenible.Expuso falsamente que la Rda. Cindy Evans Voorhees, vicaria de Santiago [el Mayor], había renunciado.Engañó a algunos de los miembros de Santiago [el Mayor] [al decirles] que él les alquilaríala propiedad durante cierto número de meses y que la diócesis ayudaría económicamente a la iglesia, yParticipó en una conducta impropia de un miembro del clero “al desorientar y engañar” al clero y al pueblo de Santiago [el Mayor], así como a la comunidad local, respecto a sus planes para la propiedad y por tomar posesión de la propiedad y privar a la congregación de acceso a ella.Herman Hollerith IV, obispo de la Diócesis de Virginia Sur, es el presidente del tribunal que lleva el caso contra Bruno. El panel, nombrado por la Junta Disciplinaria para los Obispos de entre sus miembros, incluye al obispo de Rhode Island Nicholas Knisely, al obispo de Dakota del Norte Michael Smith, al Rdo. Erik Larsen de Rhode Island y a Deborah Stokes de Ohio Sur.El tribunal no dio a conocer públicamente su propuesta de dictamen. Al parecer le dio copia de la misma a los demandantes y al Obispo Primado con vistas a obtener comentarios. El Título IV.14.7 (página 153 aquí) llama a esas partes “a ser oídas sobre los términos propuestos del dictamen”. Los comentarios al tribunal estaban previstos para el 26 de julio.A Bruno no se le permitió que hiciera ningún comentario al tribunal sobre la propuesta. Los demandantes de Santiago el Mayor sugirieron que las recomendaciones del tribunal deben entrar en vigor inmediatamente y no demorarse o verse afectadas por una apelación de su dictamen.“Hay un costo humano para el continuo exilio de la congregación”, escribieron. “Tenemos niños pequeños en la congregación de Santiago [el Mayor] que no han sido bautizados porque nacieron mientras la congregación estaba en el exilio. Ciertamente, esos niños nunca han visto el interior de la iglesia”.Los demandantes dijeron que no tienen espacio para una escuela dominical y que su maestra de escuela dominical renunció porque “estaba cansada de impartir su clase al aire libre, cansada de verse lastimada por encontrarse, ella y sus niños, excluidos de la iglesia por su obispo”. El personal diocesano rehusó recientemente que se celebrara un funeral en el edificio para una matriarca de la congregación, dijeron los demandantes.“Hemos recibido, pero no hemos incluido, muchos angustiosos emails de demandantes individuales, que no pueden entender cómo la Iglesia Episcopal permite que el cierre [de la iglesia] continúe”, escribieron.– La Rda Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora sénior y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Share Save Foreclosure inventory in January was down by one-third over the year, although completed foreclosures ticked up over the month, according to CoreLogic’s National Foreclosure Report released Thursday.Demonstrating an 11.8 percent increase over the month, completed foreclosures totaled 48,000 in January. However, despite the monthly increase, foreclosures were down 19 percent over the year. January’s total remains elevated compared to a historical norm of 21,000 foreclosures per month by CoreLogic’s standard.Having declined for 27 consecutive months, the foreclosure inventory stands at 794,000, a 33 percent drop from 1.2 million last January, according to CoreLogic. About 2 percent of all mortgaged homes were part of the foreclosure inventory in January, according to CoreLogic’s data, while Black Knight Financial Services reported the rate at 2.37 percent in its foreclosure inventory report released the same day as CoreLogic’s.”We expect to see continued progress in the months ahead, but the judicial foreclosure states will continue to lag the rest of the country in working down their backlogs of foreclosed properties,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic.In non-judicial states, there are 954 mortgages per foreclosure, while in judicial states, the ratio stands at 896 mortgages per foreclosure, according to CoreLogic chief economist Mark Fleming, who points out, “Although this is a big improvement relative to the height of the foreclosure crisis, a healthier ratio would be one in every 2000.”However, in January, non-judicial states dominated the top five list of states with the highest numbers of completed foreclosures over the year. Florida was the only judicial state in the top five, ranking No. 1 with 116,121 foreclosures. The remaining four states included Michigan (52,000), Texas (39,000), California (38,000), and Georgia (35,000). As in December, these states accounted for almost half the nation’s foreclosures over the 12 months ending in January.States where the fewest foreclosures were completed over the 12-month period include the District of Columbia (60), North Dakota (427), Hawaii (526), West Virginia (543), and Wyoming (732). Foreclosure inventories were highest in Florida (6.4 percent), New Jersey (6.3 percent), New York (4.8 percent), Connecticut (3.4 percent), and Maine (3.4 percent).While Florida topped both lists, the state’s foreclosure numbers are improving with inventory down 0.3 percentage points from December to January and completed foreclosures declining from 119,000 to 116,121. However, the state also claims the highest serious delinquency rate in the nation with 10.9 percent of loans at least 90 days past due.Foreclosure inventories were lowest in Wyoming (0.4 percent), Alaska (0.5 percent), North Dakota (0.6 percent), Colorado (0.5 percent) and Nebraska (0.6 percent).Of the nation’s largest core-based statistical areas(CBSA), Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell, Georgia topped the list for completed foreclosures over the 12 months ending in January. The CBSA reported 20,502 foreclosures over the year.Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida ranked second with 16,950 foreclosures, followed by Chicago-Naperville-Arlington Heights, Illinois (14,718); Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford, Florida (11,750); and Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, Arizona (11,283).At the bottom of the list, two CBSAs reported fewer than 1,000 foreclosures over the year in January–Nassau County-Suffolk County, New York (737) and Newark, New Jersey-Pennsylvania (860).

Danish shipping and logistics company DFDS has decided to close its Rosyth – Zeebrugge route following a fire which broke out aboard the company’s Ro-Ro freight ship Finlandia Seaways on April 16.The ship was towed to DFDS’ terminal in Immingham for cargo discharge operations. An inspection was also undertaken aboard the ship.“The inspection revealed substantial damage to the ship’s engine room, and we estimate that it will be out of service for several months for repairs. Furthermore, our search for a replacement vessel was fruitless and revealed that there are no suitable ships available,” Kell Robdrup, Senior Vice President of DFDS’ routes connecting to the southern part of the North Sea, said.“Unfortunately, this will bring about further losses on the route, and it means that we have lost all hope of being able to turn around the route’s loss-making situation. Therefore, we have no alternative but to close the route as we undoubtedly will lose clients who will be forced to seek alternative solutions for their transport,” Robdrup added.With the new situation with the ship out of service for months, the market, the customers and the financial situation “will be negatively affected, and make a turnaround and a reopening unrealistic.”DFDS informed that the closure will affect a limited number of people employed by the company as port handling was performed by external companies.The company has not made any decisions yet as regards the deployment of Finlandia Seaways when it returns from the repair docking.Following the closure of the Rosyth – Zeebrugge route, DFDS connects the UK with the continent via ten routes.

Doc Rivers said he wasn’t concerned about Dekker’s lack of production.“I don’t care about Sam’s offense,” Doc Rivers said. “I want him to be a better offensive player. I want him to make shots. I think he can help us with his athleticism and his pace. He plays hard, and that’s the one thing I love about Sam. When you put him in, he’s going to give you great energy.“I think at times he tries to do too much.”Overall, Dekker was averaging 3.2 points on 36.1 percent shooting in 20 games in his first season with the Clippers, who acquired him in the multi-player trade that sent Chris Paul to the Houston Rockets in the offseason. Last season, he averaged 6.5 points on 47.3 percent shooting.WELCOME BACKTeodosic’s return was a welcome relief for Austin Rivers and Lou Williams, who assumed many of the point guardvs duties during Teodosic’s extended absence. Simply bringing the ball up the court and initiating the offense was an added responsibility for the shooting guards.“It makes us more difficult to guard and takes a load off me and Lou because you have another playmaker out there,” Austin Rivers said. “It will be nice to get him back out there and get him going again, handling the ball and making it easier for us.” LOS ANGELES — Milos Teodosic returned to the Clippers’ starting lineup Monday after a 22-game absence because of a plantar fascia injury in his left foot suffered when he stepped on the foot of Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns in the first half of an Oct. 21 game at Staples Center.Danilo Gallinari returned to the sideline because of a left glute contusion suffered after a fall in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ victory Saturday over the Washington Wizards, when Gallinari played for the second time after a 13-game layoff because of a strained left glute.“It’s been that type of season right now,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.The Clippers haven’t been whole since Teodosic was hurt, and they won’t be whole again this season because Patrick Beverley is lost to them for the rest of 2017-18 after undergoing right knee surgery Nov. 22. On Monday, they played without three of their five opening-night starters. In addition to Gallinari and Beverley, Blake Griffin is expected to be out for up to two months because of a sprained left knee suffered in the closing minutes of the Clippers’ victory Nov. 27 over the Lakers. Griffin went through a series of shooting drills before Monday’s game against Toronto.Of Gallinari’s latest injury, which is unrelated to his previous injury, Doc Rivers said, “I didn’t see it, but I guess he took a pretty hard fall in the fourth quarter. I got a call after the game and then you go and look (at the video), and it was a pretty good fall.”Jamil Wilson started in place of Gallinari at the power forward position. Wesley Johnson started at small forward, with DeAndre Jordan at center and Teodosic at point guard and Austin Rivers at shooting guard. Austin Rivers had been the point guard since Beverley was sidelined.Sam Dekker also was under consideration to replace Gallinari, Doc Rivers said.Dekker didn’t play in the Clippers’ victory over the Wizards and has struggled to score when he has played. In four games before his benching, he averaged 3.8 points on 5-for-22 shooting (22.7 percent), including 2-for-10 shooting on 3-pointers (20 percent).

He looks good to go despite injuring his thumb and can shred this defense even without Mike Evans (hamstring).Ryan Tannehill, Titans (vs. HOU). The Tanne-thrill is back. He’s red hot, and his matchup remains favorable.Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers (vs. ATL). Thanks his completion percentage and high efficiency in the red zone, Garoppolo doesn’t need massive volume to light up the Falcons at home in a Kyle Shanahan revenge game.Kyler Murray, Cardinals (vs. CLE). He’ll do some running again against a weaker pass rush and have a good shot at multiple scores at home.Jared Goff, Rams (vs. DAL). The Cowboys’ defense is reeling, and there should be some big points on both sides here as Dallas can’t cover either his slot receiver or tight end.Tom Brady, Patriots (vs. CIN). He has a limited ceiling because they can win this game running away with rushing and defense, but 250 yards and two TDs is easily attainable.DFS bargainsBaker Mayfield, Browns (at ARI, $6,400 on DraftKings, $7,700 on FanDuel). No team gives up more QB points than the Cardinals, thus his raised price. A Freddie Kitchens and Steve Wilks revenge game will help him produce well playing off the run.Gardner Minshew, Jaguars (at OAK, $5,500 on DraftKings, $6,900 on FanDuel). They are tanking for Doug Marrone, but when the Raiders open up a big lead, Minshew will be chucking often in the second half and put up decent digits even without D.J. Chark (foot).Deep streamersJacoby Brissett, Colts (at NO), Eli Manning/Daniel Jones, Giants (vs. MIA), David Blough, Lions (vs. TB)WEEK 15 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endFantasy Football Week 15 Sit ‘Em: QuarterbacksWeaker startsJosh Allen, Bills (at PIT). Another week, another tough AFC North defense that won’t let him get free as a runner.Kirk Cousins, Vikings (at LAC). The Chargers’ defense is playing very well now, so watch out here.Matt Ryan, Falcons (at SF). The 49ers’ pass defense is showing more cracks and won’t have Dee Ford or Richard Sherman, but you still can’t trust him on the road.Philip Rivers, Chargers (vs. MIN). He had his best game in a while last week, but going here this late in the season is asking for trouble.Mitchell Trubisky, Bears (at GB). He’s been very good of late, but the Packers’ strength is pass defense.Deep trapsKyle Allen, Panthers (vs. SEA), Drew Lock, Broncos (at KC)WEEK 15 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash | Y! GPPFantasy Football Week 15 Start ‘Em: Running backsRegular startsChristian McCaffrey, Panthers (vs. SE), Dalvin Cook, Vikings (at LAC), Saquon Barkley, Giants (vs. MIA), Ezekiel Elliott, Cowboys (vs. LAR), Aaron Jones, Packers (vs. CHI), Derrick Henry, Titans (vs. HOU), Leonard Fournette, Jaguars (at OAK), Alvin Kamara, Saints (vs.IND), Nick Chubb, Browns (at ARI), Le’Veon Bell, Jets (at BAL), Mark Ingram, Ravens (vs. NYJ), Todd Gurley, Rams (at DAL), Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler, Chargers (vs. MIN), Chris Carson, Seahawks (at CAR), Joe Mixon, Bengals (vs. NE)Stronger startsPhillip Lindsay, Broncos (at KC). Lindsay and Royce Freeman both warmed up together with Lock making the offense look legitimate again in Houston, and they are the best tickets to move the ball on the Chiefs.Josh Jacobs, Raiders (vs. JAX). Jacobs looks like he’s returning from his shoulder injury, but it not, pivot back to Deandre Washington This matchup is superb given the Jaguars’ linebacker issues.David Montgomery, Bears (at GB). They need to feed the rookie often here in Lambeau Field with unpredictable weather, and that should go well against a shaky Packers run defense.Kareem Hunt, Browns (at ARI). He keeps being involved heavily, and Cleveland should have no trouble moving the ball.Patrick Laird, Dolphins (vs. NYG). The Giants got destroyed by the Eagles’ running backs in open field as receivers because of their linebacker issues and he should be busy.Miles Sanders, Eagles (vs. WAS). The Eagles should be playing from ahead (we think), so he can redeem himself against the Redskins’ run defense, assuming Jordan Howard (shoulder) can’t play again.James White, Patriots (at CIN). They need him a ton in their running and passing games with limited playmakers, and he’s come through the past two weeks.DFS bargainsSony Michel, Patriots (at CIN, $5,100 on DraftKings, $6,100 on FanDuel). He’s been very quiet and fading from this struggling offense of late, but the Bengals defense is so bad against the run that game script can lead to a massive rebound at this nice price.Raheem Mostert, 49ers (vs. ATL, $5,200 on DraftKings, $7,500 on FanDuel). He’s very cheap still on DK, so the price vs. FD makes him more appealing there given his newfound “lead” status in the backfield.Fantasy Football Week 15 Sit ‘Em: Running backsWeaker startsMarlon Mack, Colts (at NO). He got fortunate with a TD last week against the Buccaneers, but the Saints are just as tough on power running backs.Devin Singletary, Bills (at PIT). The Steelers’ defense is downright stingy against everything at the moment.Devonta Freeman, Falcons (at SF). Freeman peaked with his game against the lowly Panthers, and he’ll snap back to little viable production on the road.Kenyan Drake, Cardinals (vs. CLE). He’s getting the volume, but the Browns’ defense is playing better than you think against the run — and David Johnson is now randomly involved enough again.Adrian Peterson, Redskins (vs. PHI). The Eagles shut down the run straight up, so if you need a Washington back without Derrius Guice (knee) go with Chris Thompson in PPR.Benny Snell, Steelers (vs. BUF). He can’t be trusted after his fumble last week and Kerryth White doing things. Plus, there’s a good chance James Conner (shoulder) will be back on Sunday night.Bo Scarbrough, Lions (vs. TB). The Bucs can straight up take him out of the game inside — and that’s assuming he plays despite a rib injury.Peyton Barber and Ronald Jones, Buccaneers (at DET). The matchup is awesome, but good luck guessing who will get the key touches.All Chiefs (vs. DEN). Minus the Williamses, this has somehow become a bigger mess.Fantasy Football Week 15 Start ‘Em: Wide receiversRegular startsDeAndre Hopkins, Texans (at TEN), Michael Thomas, Saints (vs. IND), Tyreek Hill, Chiefs (vs. DEN), Davante Adams, Packers (vs. CHI), Chris Godwin, Buccaneers (vs. DET), Julio Jones, Falcons (at SF), Keenan Allen, Chargers (vs. MIN), Stefon Diggs, Vikings (at LAC), Tyler Lockett, Seahawks (at CAR), Kenny Golladay, Lions (vs. TB), Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, Cowboys (vs. LAR), Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry, Browns (at ARI), Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp, Rams (at DAL), Allen Robinson, Bears (at GB), D.J. Moore, Panthers (vs. SEA), Julian Edelman, Patriots (at CIN), Courtland Sutton, Broncos (vs. LAC), DeVante Parker (if he plays, at NYG)Stronger startsA.J. Brown, Titans (vs. HOU). Here’s your true go-to guy for Ryan Tannehill, and the Texans can’t match up with the emerging rookie well.Emmanuel Sanders, 49ers (vs. ATL). This offense is getting everyone involved, and these guys can torch a bad secondary now minus Desmond Trufant at home.DK Metcalf, Seahawks (at CAR). He should avoid James Bradberry for some of the game, and the rookie has been pretty solid with his high floor. He is due to score on a deep shot off play-action.Terry McLaurin, Redskins (vs. PHI). He had a strong Week 1 debut against them and looked good again last week. He can torch them downfield for Dwayne Haskins.Chris Conley and Dede Westbrook, Jaguars (at OAK). With DJ Chark (foot) set to miss the game, these guys will be a lot busier for Minshew.Zach Pascal, Colts (at NO). He’s been producing again, and Jacoby Brissett will likely to need to throw often.Anthony Miller, Bears (at GB). He can do some sneaky good PPR work in the slot.DFS BargainsDeebo Samuel, 49ers (vs. ATL, $5,800 on DraftKings, $6,500 on FanDuel). Samuel is worth rolling with again in a great spot, too against the Falcons after a month of fine rookie producing with his rushing, receiving and touchdowns.Darius Slayton, Giants (vs. MIA, $4,700 on DraftKings, $6,300 on FanDuel). Speaking of tournaments, it’s fun to have him back on the main slate after he was the ultimate Showdown Captain against the Eagles on MNF, stepping into a matchup Robby Anderson rocked last week.Mike Williams, Chargers (vs. MIN, $4,600 on DraftKings, $6,200 on FanDuel). He made another big play against the Jaguars and also found the end zone for the first time all year. The Vikings’ secondary is beatable deep.Deep sleepersAllen Lazard, Packers (vs. CHI), Breshad Perriman, Buccaneers (at DET), Jakobi Meyers, Patriots (at CIN)MORE WEEK 15:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsFantasy Football Week 15 Sit ‘Em: Wide receiversWeaker startsJohn Brown and Cole Beasley, Bills (at PIT).

Tre’Davious White and a stifling Bills secondary looms.Fantasy Football Week 15 Start ‘Em: Tight endsRegular startsGeorge Kittle, 49ers (vs. ATL), Travis Kelce, Chiefs (vs. DEN), Darren Waller, Raiders (vs. JAX), Zach Ertz, Eagles (at WAS), Hunter Henry, Chargers (vs. MIN), Austin Hooper, Falcons (at SF), Jared Cook, Saints (if he plays, vs. IND), Mark Andrews, Ravens (if he plays, vs. NYJ)Stronger startsTyler Higbee, Rams (at DAL). He’s on fire with no Gerald Everett and steps into a third consecutive smash spot.Jack Doyle, Colts (at NO). He can rebound, as the Saints’ linebackers are really hurting.O.J. Howard, Buccaneers (at DET). He is looking much better of late for Bruce Arians, and he needs to be more involved with no Mike Evans (hamstring).Dallas Goedert, Eagles (at WAS). Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is back on the shelf, meaning Goedert will need to be used a lot more again.Noah Fant, Broncos (at KC). Fant is expected to play through a couple injuries, and he can re-create his chemistry with Drew Lock in a fine matchup for the position.David Njoku, Browns (at ARI). Vance McDonald didn’t come through last week before being concussed, so here’s dart-throwing toward Njoku to restore the trend in his second game back.DFS BargainIan Thomas, Panthers (vs. SEA, $3,100 on DraftKings, $5,300 on FanDuel). Thomas is a solid plug-and-play after seamlessly replacing Greg Olsen’s production in Atlanta. The matchup is even better this week.Fantasy Football Week 15 Sit ‘Em: Tight endsWeaker startsJacob Hollister, Seahawks (at CAR). The Panthers can’t stop the run and struggle with No. 2 wideouts, but they contain tight ends well.Kyle Rudolph, Vikings (at LAC). He’s cold again, and this matchup is rougher than you think now.Mike Gesicki, Dolphins (at NYG). Don’t chase the Ertz game because the Giants have handled tight ends OK for the most part.Jonnu Smith, Titans (vs. HOU). The Texans are more vulnerable on the outside, and he’s still in a committee.Darren Fells, Texans (at TEN). The numbers against the Titans call for a dice roll with no Will Fuller (hamstring), but the head says no.MORE WEEK 15 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderFantasy Football Week 15 Start ‘Em: DefensesStronger startsPatriots (at CIN), Steelers (vs. BUF), 49ers (vs. ATL), Chiefs (vs. DEN), Seahawks (at CAR), Eagles (at WAS), Saints (vs. IND), Packers (vs. CHI), Browns (at Ari)DFS Bargain Fantasy start ’em, sit ’em decisions only get more difficult in the playoffs, be it because of injuries, late-season breakouts, or matchups.

Sussex teenager Joe Sullivan got into the Carris Trophy from the reserve list – and made the most of his chance with a leaderboard-topping 66 in the first round.He’s three shots clear of Gregorio De Leo of Italy and Eemil Alajarvi of Finland. Two players are tied on two-under while a group of 13 share sixth place on one-under.They include Fulford junior captain George Robson, Seb Tannum Donaldson (Buckinghamshire), Matthew Jackman (Southport & Ainsdale), James Cooper (Cumberwell Park), Curtis Knipes (Abridge), Harrison Hodgson (Rockliffe Hall) and George Raitt (Whetstone).Sullivan (Chartham Park) made his way into the lead with when he collected seven birdies and just one bogey in the hot, muggy sunshine at Fulford Golf Club, York.The 16-year-old is playing in the Carris Trophy – or the English U18 boys’ open championship – for the first time and had to bide his time to join the field. He was originally 11th on the reserve list, having entered off a handicap of 0.6.Since then he’s been cut to plus-2 with a string of sub-par rounds and he demonstrated his form today, with his best-ever score in a major competition.Sullivan’s iron play was in great shape and he gave himself lots of chances from 6ft – making most of them but leaving a couple behind. He’s spent a lot of time lately practising his putting and it paid off today over the closing holes, when he holed from 25ft and then 20ft for birdies on 15 and 16.Now he’s looking forward to tomorrow and his early tee time of 7.40am. “That’s good, I can get straight out and not think about it!” he said.Fulford’s junior captain George Robson also got in from the reserve list and also took advantage of the opportunity. He went round in 71 with a round which included a birdie on the 10th and an eagle three on the 11th.Defending champion Andrea Romano of Italy, started well with a birdie on the first but then was unable to make ground and closed with four-over 76.

SANTA CLARA — John Harbaugh, the Harbaugh who coached the Ravens over the 49ers in the Super Bowl six years ago, had a lot to say about this Sunday’s meeting in Baltimore. Here are his top quotes from Wednesday’s conference call with Bay Area media:1. On how much influence the 49ers’ 2011-12 offense had on the Ravens’ 2019 version under coordinator Greg Roman, formerly of the 49ers:“Obviously Greg Roman is here and was a huge part of that there with my brother. I’ve always admired what they …
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Did you hear about the nominee for the federal judge position in DC who could not answer basic questions about trial law when he was quizzed by the Senate Committee? Let me preface this by saying I try to avoid partisan politics in this column. And this complies because a Republican nominee was grilled by a Republican senator. To be specific, the nominee was Matthew Spencer Peterson, currently a commissioner of the Federal Election Commission. The questions were posed by Louisiana Senator John Neely Kennedy. And these questions were so basic that any fan of Law and Order could have knocked them out of the park.Before the quiz began, Sen. Kennedy established that Matthew Spencer Peterson had never tried a case to verdict in a courtroom, never tried a jury trial (civil or criminal), never tried a bench trial, never tried anything in federal or state court and had never conducted a deposition by himself. In essence, Sen. Kennedy laid the foundation for the importance of the substantive questions that followed.Matthew Spencer Peterson could not answer the following questions that are clearly applicable to the daily duties of a federal judge. What is a motion in limine? What is the Daubert standard? What is the Younger Abstention Doctrine? What is the Pullman Abstention Doctrine?For the record, a motion in limine is a motion, discussed outside the presence of the jury, to request that certain testimony be excluded. The motion is decided by the judge in both civil and criminal proceedings. The name “in limine” is Latin for “on the threshold.”Some years back, I represented a farmer who was sued for nuisance before his contract barns were built. We spent years wrangling over this before the farmer prevailed. He is still raising hogs and turkeys, by the way. A crucial motion in limine in our case was to prevent the plaintiff’s witness, who was a general practitioner physician from Iowa, from testifying as an expert. She was not licensed to practice in Ohio and had never examined any Ohio patients. Furthermore, she had never done any research on hog lagoons or confinement buildings. We succeeded in blocking expert testimony from the doc.In federal law, the Daubert Standard is a rule of evidence regarding the admissibility of expert witnesses’ testimony regarding presentation of unqualified (often quasi-scientific) evidence. This is relevant in many agricultural cases because frequently farming techniques are criticized but the allegations lack scientific methodology and are excluded under Daubert.The Younger Abstention Doctrine established that except in limited circumstances, involving immediate injury, federal courts should not enjoin state criminal proceedings. This is based on federalism principles and the belief that federal courts should not interfere with state courts. In 2014, it was narrowly defined by the U.S. Supreme Court.The Pullman Abstention Doctrine holds that the federal court may abstain until the state law question can be resolved in state court. The purpose of Pullman is to avoid the unnecessary decision of unsettled questions of constitutional law.Abstention issues could arise in bankruptcy cases. Chapter 12 bankruptcy is dedicated to family farms. Here’s hoping none of us need that relief. And now you know more than a federal judicial nominee did about the topic.A Google search of Matthew Spencer Peterson establishes that he graduated from the University of Virginia School of Law. That is one of the finest law schools in the country. While there, he was a member of the Virginia Law Review. And that is a very big deal. He was then hired by Wiley Rein LLP in Washington, DC, a very prestigious large law firm that hires only the finest law school graduates.Matthew Spencer Peterson had to have known the answers to the questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee at some point or he would not have passed law school or the bar exam. Furthermore, all states require all practicing attorneys to complete significant hours of continuing legal education every year or two. Topics like motions in limine and abstention doctrines are frequent topics for CLE.The issue is that Matthew Spencer Peterson did not prepare himself for the hearing. It is no mystery what the duties of a federal judge are. He could have called any of them or stopped by a federal courthouse and observed. Or he could have just turned on the television. Especially since Matthew Spencer Peterson knew that his resume lacked the typical litigation experience, he should have anticipated the potential for an interrogation by the Senate Judiciary Committee. He currently works in government in DC; I would hope he knows how the system works.A standing committee of the American Bar Association found that four recent judicial nominees were not qualified. And Matthew Spencer Peterson was not one of them. I want to hear the other four answer the same questions. Please.Matthew Spencer Peterson withdrew his nomination. He plans to continue serving as a Commissioner for the Federal Election Commission, where he has been employed since 2008. He frequently joins to block enforcement of campaign finance laws.Democrats held the oval office for eight years. There have to be many qualified Republican lawyers waiting for the opportunity to be appointed to the judiciary. Here’s hoping that cream rises to the top.Can you imagine what would happen if the county fair had someone totally unqualified judge the steer show? A court room is really not much different. Except a federal judge, once appointed, serves for life. That can be a very long time.
The iPad is clearly one of those universal technologies that will be as useful in the home as in the office. Much like the iPhone, people will want it for work simply because it will be useful for getting work completed. Like any Apple product, it’s easy to use. It’s lightweight. And it’s mobile. Plus, this baby is as sleek as it gets.We expect to see a similar trajectory for the iPad in the enterprise as the iPhone has had in recent months.Apple reported its earnings earlier this week. The company reported that iPhone usage doubled since last summer after the introduction of the 3GS. The iPad with 3GS service will be available in 90 days. Our bet is that by next fall we will be reporting similar news about the iPad as we have about the iPhone.Similar to the iPhone, the iPad serves as a communication device. It’s clearly positioned as a consumer device for reading newspapers, watching movies and all sorts of various entertainments. But it is also well suited for the enterprise. According to Forrester Research, the iPad will be particularly well suited to the high-end mobile office worker. These people will pay for the tablet themselves. They will primarily use it for messaging and collaboration and to access email, calendars and productivity applications.Forrester analyst Ted Schadler says the iPad has a number of implications for the market .Google will have to respond now that Apple has extended its platform for applications. And the competition will only intensify for collaboration and productivity applications. According to Schrader:“The importance of great document tools just increased. Apple’s support of iWorks on the iPad gives execs what they need to present on the road and leave the laptop at home. Microsoft should build best-in-class iPad software in the Office formats. (Or watch execs move key material to the iWorks formats.) Adobe should take responsibility for a great PDF reader. And these readers must also be great presentation tools.”We know what the critics will say. Corporate governance will preclude the use of the iPad in the enterprise. It will have to meet corporate IT requirements for laptops. This may be true, but like the iPhone, people will buy and use it, regardless of the corporate policy.Still, there are a number of requirements that would make it ideal for the enterprise, including the ability to wipe data remotely and hardware encryption.But in the end, the iPad is a sleek device that people will want for work as much as for at home.
