Mourinho knows the value of a winning start — he had won the first match in all of his previous jobs in the Premier League. And facing the Hammers, who had taken just two points from their previous six Premier League outings, gave him the ideal chance to maintain that record.Three unanswered goals between the 36th and 49th minutes left Spurs cruising. And, while Mourinho will be frustrated that his side conceded twice in the closing stages, the 3-2 win should nonetheless be effective in changing the mood around the club, for the next few days at least.Spurs’ away record was one of the worst features of the final months of Mauricio Pochettino’s reign. And, in just 90 minutes at the London Stadium, Mourinho achieved something his predecessor had been unable to do since January — win on the road in the Premier League.The fact the long-awaited victory came against West Ham made it all the sweeter for Spurs supporters, instantly giving Mourinho extra credit with a fan base who adored Pochettino.As Harry Kane made it 3-0 early in the second half, the visiting fans gleefully sang: “How s— must you be? We’re winning away!”Pochettino may reflect ruefully on the fact that he didn’t get to remain in charge for the short trip across London to face beleaguered West Ham, but it is pointless to speculate about what might have happened if the Argentine had been given an extra week at the helm.It is Mourinho who picked the team and oversaw the victory. “Eleven months without music in the away dressing room, without a smile, without happiness and they did it,” said Mourinho. “I am very happy with them. I am very happy for them.”If somebody didn’t watch the game and just knows the result, they will think it is very, very difficult for us to win. The feeling is that we were closer to 4-0 than West Ham were to 3-1.”The Portuguese stated ahead of the match that he would be seeking to provide an “update, not a change” and he was true to his word.The 4-2-3-1 system used at West Ham was the same that Pochettino had used in his final matches and, while Mourinho has said he is looking forward to promoting young talent from the academy, he resisted the temptation to make a statement by picking a recent graduate.Yet there were nonetheless some notable alterations which give an indication of what might lie ahead, and which players might benefit from the change in the dugout.For starters, Mourinho has instantly scrapped Spurs’ tactic of passing out from the back at goal kicks. Instead of knocking the ball to a center back inside his own box, Paulo Gazzaniga went long every time.The selection of Lucas Moura also feels significant, given Mourinho revealed this week that he tried to sign the Brazilian for Real Madrid.The hat-trick hero on that magical night in Amsterdam six months ago, Lucas had only started four league games for Pochettino this season — yet he looks set to become a more regular starter now and made an immediate impact at West Ham.Mourinho’s decision to play with two wingers — Lucas and Heung-Min Son — paid off handsomely as Son scored the first goal and laid on the second for Lucas with a low cross. The pacy pair then nearly combined to score another goal at the start of the second half after breaking from inside their own half.Mourinho also selected Davinson Sanchez, having previously targeted the Colombian in the 2017 Europa League final, instructing his Manchester United players to allow the then-Ajax center back to have the ball because he was supposedly less comfortable with it than his teammates.It remains to be seen whether Sanchez keeps his place when Jan Vertonghen is available — especially after West Ham scored from two set pieces — but Mourinho has given the 23-year-old an immediate show of faith.He has done the same with Eric Dier, another player he wanted to sign, in 2017, during his tenure at Old Trafford.At the time, Mourinho was looking for a holding midfielder and he deployed Dier in that role at West Ham. But things have changed in the last two years, with Dier regressing and losing status with both club and country.Given a big opportunity at the London Stadium, the 25-year-old’s passing was sloppy, as it has been too often. On one occasion in the first half, he gave the ball away twice in quick succession.With Moussa Sissoko watching from the bench and Tanguy Ndombele soon to return from injury, Dier will surely need to improve to keep his place. Mourinho is known for producing well-organized sides — sometimes functional rather than exciting — but all of his attacking players delivered in his first match.The question now is whether Saturday’s match says more about West Ham than it does about Tottenham — whether Spurs would have won regardless of who was in charge.We will know more after Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Olympiacos at White Hart Lane, but the head coach who has been brought in to instill a winning mentality and finally bring trophies to the club has made a triumphant start.

He is an intelligent footballer to understand what we wanted and very, very important for the team.”last_img

Esta incorporación hace ascender a 30 el número de congregaciones que integra la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur.Los arreglos de culto para las tres misiones más recientes no son inusitados para congregaciones bisoñas en las Tierras Bajas de Carolina del Sur. Por ejemplo, la iglesia episcopal en Edisto comenzó a reunirse en un restaurante de parrilladas y ahora comparte espacio con la Nueva Primera Iglesia Bautista Misionera, una iglesia bautista afroamericana que se congrega en un edificio contigo más reciente.Miembros de la iglesia episcopal del Mesías en Myrtle Beach, Carolina del Sur, desfilan por el centro de la nave de la iglesia de la Santa Comunión, en Charleston, el 15 de noviembre, para ser recibidos como congregación de misión de la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur.

En octubre, la congregación de la misión celebró un oficio de bendición de animales en el parque para perros que queda calle abajo.La iglesia episcopal del Buen Pastor [Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd] en Summerville, comparte espacio con una congregación afroamericana, la iglesia metodista unida Wesley, y reúne la escuela dominical en la biblioteca pública que queda al doblar de la esquina.Y la iglesia episcopal de Santa Ana [St. Anne’s Episcopal Church] en Conway, adora en la Capilla Lackey de la Universidad de Coastal Carolina.“Los que más nos han acogido son grupos improbables”, le dijo a ENS Charles vonRosenberg, obispo provisional de Carolina del Sur.A partir de noviembre de 2012, y en algunos casos antes de esa fecha, muchos episcopales se sintieron obligados a abandonar sus parroquias en medio de una disputa provocada por Mark Lawrence, el obispo diocesano en ese momento, como reacción a decisiones tomadas por la Iglesia Episcopal a nivel denominacional. Se considera que Lawrence ha renunciado a sus órdenes episcopales.Miembros de la iglesia episcopal de East Cooper, en la zona de Charleston, reciben un aplauso en la iglesia de la Santa Comunión, Charleston, el 15 de noviembre, luego de ser oficialmente recibida como una congregación en misión de la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Los que desearon permanecer en la Iglesia Episcopal, ahora forman parte de lo que se conoce como la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur. A la entidad se le conoce por este nombre desde el 26 de enero de 2013 a fin de acatar la orden de restricción temporal que le impidió al grupo usar el escudo diocesano y los nombres de “Iglesia Protestante Episcopal en la Diócesis de Carolina del Sur”, “Diócesis de Carolina del Sur” y “Diócesis Episcopal de Carolina del Sur”.“El evento del Éxodo parece relacionarse con nuestra experiencia de varios modos”, dijo vonRosenberg durante su alocución a la 224ª. Convención Anual de la Iglesia el 15 de noviembre. “Por ejemplo, les he oído decir a muchos de ustedes de la sensación y la realidad de la opresión en esta parte de la Iglesia, en tiempos anteriores. Luego tuvo lugar una especie de separación y éxodo. Y ahora, pueblo de Dios, nos encontramos atravesando el desierto”.Sin embargo, no se trata de un desierto estéril, dijo vonRosenberg durante una entrevista para ENS antes de la convención. Además del crecimiento numérico, ha habido un crecimiento espiritual.“Esto tiene un sentido, que es intenso y profundo. Tiene que ver con la edificación de una comunidad, a sabiendas de que es importante afirmar eso y querer seguir adelante con esa convicción”, dijo. “No miramos hacia atrás, porque el futuro es luminoso y lo que pertenece al pasado es algo que no necesitamos ni queremos revivir”.O como lo definió Andrea McKellar, guardiana mayor de San Francisco de Asís: “Es de gran regocijo. Es una verdadera experiencia de resurrección que pasáramos de lo que parecía ser, en los primeros días, la peor situación del mundo al presente, cuando yo no cambiaría nada al respecto”.Estas ocho nuevas comunidades de culto son peregrinos que viajan hacia un destino que aún no ven con claridad, pero saben que están comprometidos a ser episcopales, dijeron el obispo y otras personas.“Hay una santa paciencia”, entre esos peregrinos, dijo el Ven. Calhoun Walpole, que sirve de arcediano de la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur.“La gente sabe que no verá los frutos. Yo percibo una profunda convicción, una profunda comprensión de que la cosecha no es nuestra; que nunca puede ser nuestra, porque es del Señor; que estamos aquí laborando en estos campos ahora, laborando por las generaciones futuras”, dijo Walpole, que también es vicario de la iglesia episcopal de la Gracia [Grace Episcopal Church] en Charleston. “Todo se reduce a que la Iglesia sea la Iglesia. Es lo que la Iglesia ha hecho siempre en todas las generaciones y en todos los lugares. Nosotros sólo tenemos el don de experimentar un elevado sentido de esa realidad”.Las personas que experimentan esa realidad han hecho el sacrificio de abandonar los edificios de la Iglesia que conservan parte de las historias de sus familias y, en algunos casos, la familia y los amigos que llevaron a cabo esa historia, dijeron vonRosenberg y Walpole. Y Walpole sugirió que se están haciendo también otros sacrificios, reconociendo que algunos episcopales se han quedado en las parroquias que han seguido el liderazgo de Lawrence.“Creo que la historia que no se cuenta por razones obvias es la historia de las personas que han tomado la decisión de quedarse en sus respectivas parroquias que se separaron”, explicó Walpole. “Creo que esas cifras son grandes y creo que esas personas, aunque ni siquiera usan la terminología de ‘llamado’ o ‘sacrificio’, consciente o inconscientemente siguen dando un silencioso testimonio de la presencia de la Iglesia Episcopal en esas parroquias”.En medio de la reorganización de la Iglesia Episcopal en Carolina del Sur, sus miembros fueron llamados, durante la convención del 14 y 15 de noviembre, a mirar hacia fuera, tanto como hacia adentro. El lema de la convención fue “Llevamos Cristo al mundo”. Sus líderes querían comenzar a cambiar el objetivo de la Iglesia, de la supervivencia a la misión, en tanto restablecían un sentido episcopal y anglicano de identidad y responsabilidad. VonRosenberg dijo que el liderazgo se propone alentar a todas sus congregaciones, y especialmente a las que ahora se inician, “a ser reconocidas en la comunidad en general por un propósito que conlleve la misión de Jesús”.Más de 300 personas asistieron a la convención, entre ellos 77 delegados laicos y 36 miembros del clero. Aquí puede obtenerse información sobre las labores de la Convención, que se celebró en la iglesia de la Santa Comunión [Church of the Holy Communion] en Charleston. El Rdo. Thomas Brackett, misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal para el comienzo de nuevas iglesias e iniciativas misionales, dirigió una serie de talleres el 14 de noviembre como parte de ese empeño. El Rdo. Canónigo Mark Stevenson, misionero encargado de la pobreza nacional en la Iglesia Episcopal, también habló en la convención.Y James Tengatenga, antiguo obispo de Malawi Sur, que preside el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano, fue el predicador durante la eucaristía de apertura.La presencia de Tengatenga se proponía mostrarle a la Iglesia y a la comunidad en general, como dijera vonRosenberg en su alocución, que “La Iglesia Episcopal es el único miembro reconocido de la Comunión Anglicana en este país”.Durante las sesiones de trabajo de la convención, los delegados anularon por unanimidad los cambios constitucionales y canónicos hechos por las convenciones presididas por Lawrence para separar a la Iglesia [en Carolina del Sur] de la Iglesia Episcopal. El Canciller Thomas Tisdale le dijo a la convención que las acciones correctivas del 15 de noviembre tenían el efecto de “hacernos parte de la Iglesia Episcopal”.Quedan por hacer algunas gestiones legales. Hay actuaciones judiciales pendientes de decidir cuál de los dos grupos debe tener el control legal de la Diócesis de Carolina del Sur. Y si bien vonRosenberg y otros líderes no quieren que las actuaciones judiciales se concentren en los episcopales, tales actuaciones si le hacen reclamos a la atención y finanzas de la organización. Y el obispo dice que representan un quehacer importante para la reorganización de los episcopales y su futuro “en esta parte de Carolina del Sur”. Los detalles de las actuaciones judiciales pueden hallarse aquí.No obstante, vonRosenberg le dijo a ENS que los episcopales en Carolina del Sur le dicen que “no estamos mirando hacia atrás porque el futuro es luminoso y lo que se encuentra en el pasado es algo que no necesitamos ni queremos revivir”.Eve Pinckey, miembro fundadora de la iglesia episcopal en Okatie y que ahora es parte de la junta parroquial, lo define de esta manera: “Vamos a crecer, a crecer, a crecer y a amarnos, a amarnos y a amarnos los unos a los otros, como siempre lo hemos hecho. No veo llegada la hora [de que eso suceda].– La Rda. Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

10 ways to be more active during the work day

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter We’re sitting too much and it’s dangerous. The average American spends more than seven hours sitting every day, and the more time you sit, the higher your risk of serious, potentially life-threatening health problems such as obesity, type 2 diabetes and heart disease. So, what can you do about it?Fortunately, there are simple changes you can make during the day – anywhere, even at the work place – to improve your wellness and reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes. As part of the American Diabetes Association’s Wellness Lives Here initiative, the Association encourages everyone to get active for National Get Fit Don’t Sit Day with these 10 tips for the workplace and beyond.Park a few blocks away from the office each morning and walk to work.This allows you to start off your mornings energized and ready to take on the workday. If you take public transportation, get off one stop earlier to squeeze in some light exercise before 8 a.m.Take the stairs instead of the elevator.Take the stairs instead of the elevator.Waiting for the elevator often takes just as long as walking up the stairs, so why not use this opportunity to get your heart rate up? Plus, you’ll get the chance to work your leg muscles.Get up and move around the office once every 90 minutes.When you’re nose-deep in work, it’s easy to lose track of time. Set up reminders on your phone or email every 60-90 minutes to get up and do a quick lap around the office. You can use this time to fill up your water bottle, go to the bathroom or catch up with coworkers.Ask questions and discuss issues face-to-face.Rather than sending an email every time you have a question, go to your coworker’s office to discuss the issue face-to-face. This gives you a good excuse to get moving and a chance to more effectively hash out solutions in person.Use your lunch break to move around outside.So many Americans today work through their lunch break. When possible, take advantage of this time to walk outside and soak in the nice weather. Fresh air and vitamin D are often all you need to stay focused and push through the afternoon slump.Stand up and stretch.If you don’t have time to walk around the office every 90 minutes, use the opportunity to stand up and stretch instead. Stretching is a great way to increase energy levels, reduce muscle tension and get your body moving.Pace around the office during conference calls.Conference calls are the perfect time to be active. Put clients and coworkers on speaker, or use your mobile phone during meetings to move around without any trouble.Do chair exercises at your desk.You’ve been wanting to tone your arms for the summer – why not achieve your goals at the office? When you need a break, do a few reps of chair sits. You can even alternate between chair exercises and push ups!Hold standing or walking meetings.Many coworkers will welcome the opportunity to stand and stretch their legs for a moment.Many coworkers will welcome the opportunity to stand and stretch their legs for a moment. If you have a two-person meeting, consider going for a walk.Fidget when you work.Small movements and quick exercise breaks add up, especially in a sedentary work place, so challenge yourself to stand, stretch or even tap a foot to bring motion into otherwise still parts of your day. Just remember to keep it professional!Making a point to move throughout the day puts you on the right track toward wellness.
