whatsapp whatsapp Esprit profit drops Clothing retailer Esprit Holdings posted a 21 per cent fall in first-half net profit and will switch its textile sourcing to Bangladesh from southern China to cut costs. Esprit, like rivals such as the world’s No3 fashion retailer Hennes & Mauritz faces the challenge of rising raw material costs, such as cotton, which will pressure sales of budget clothing chains. “We have identified the opportunities to diversify our portfolio in different countries. One of the countries that we have identified is Bangladesh,” Esprit’s chief executive Ronald Van der Vis said. “We will open selectively new sourcing offices in future in markets where we believe there are opportunities for us.” Esprit shares ended down 0.3 per cent.

TAGS: The Greatest Players Paparemborde died from cancer at the age of just 52 in April 2001, leaving his wife Valerie, son Pierre and daughters France and Elsa.For the latest Rugby World subscription offers click here and find out how to download the digital edition here. Rated alongside Graham Price as “undoubtedly the greatest tighthead prop of the modern era” by another legend of the front row, Fran Cotton, Robert Paparemborde anchored a French pack which won three Five Nations titles, including Grand Slams in 1977 and 1981.Known as the Bear of the Pyrenees, or Patou (which translates as a big, friendly dog), this stalwart of the Pau club didn’t make his Test debut until he was 27 but was France’s most-capped prop on his retirement and set a record for scoring tries from that position too.Respected French coach Daniel Herrero credits Paparemborde with inventing modern prop play. He was mobile but more famously used his terrific strength to devastating effect in the scrum. “He was massively strong and powerful and had those incredible sloping shoulders that made him so difficult to scrummage against,” recalls Cotton.A judo black belt, he was a popular character who fellow prop Gerard Cholley credits as being the focal point of the France team in that era. He captained les Bleus five times. Another comrade from that pack, Jean-Pierre Bastiat, says: “He was the most accomplished prop I ever saw.” LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Major teams: Pau, RacingCountry: FranceTest span: 1975-83Test caps: 55 (55 starts)Test points: 32 (8T) France centre Roland Bertranne remembers Paparemborde asking the whole team to help choose a name for his daughter who was born on the day of a Test match, and they named her France.Having spent most of his career with Pau, he switched to Racing Club in Paris for the final year, then coached them to the French title in 1990. He was also vice-president of the French Federation, while away from rugby he was a shopkeeper, a bar owner and a local councillor in Pau.

He was also the first black bishop of the then-205-year-old diocese. A total of nine candidates were in the running, including the Rev. Nancy Van Dyke Platt of Maine who, if elected, would have been the first woman bishop in the Anglican Communion (that distinction fell in early 1989 to the Rt. Rev. Barbara Harris).Newly consecrated Bishop Suffragan of Pennsylvania Bishop Franklin D.

Walker of Washington, is at left center. The Very Rev. Thomas L. McClellan, right, was master-of-ceremonies at the Oct. 7, 1988, consecration. Photo: Archives of the Episcopal ChurchSpeaking in Nov. 6, 1992, at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Philadelphia during a service to rebury the remains of Absalom Jones — the first African-American ordained a priest in the Episcopal Church — nearly 200 years after his death, Turner said that “we have indeed come this far by faith.”“We can be justly proud of our sojourn in the Episcopal Church, although it has been an uphill struggle,” he said.Turner officially retired as suffragan in 2000 and also served the diocese as an assisting bishop.Turner was born in Norwood, North Carolina, on July 19, 1933. He earned his A.B. degree from Livingstone College and his S.T.B. degree from Berkeley Divinity School (from which he also held a D.D. degree); he pursued further graduate study at General Theological Seminary. He was ordained deacon, and later priest, in 1965. Turner was vicar of the Church of the Epiphany in Dallas (1965-1966) and rector of St. George’s Church in Washington, D.C. (1966-1972).While in Washington, D.C., he founded the Washington Episcopal Clergy Association. He was also on the board of directors for the Kanuga Conference Center, and was a trustee of Berkeley Divinity School. Turner founded the Organization of Black Episcopal Seminarians. He was also the editor of the hymnal Lift Every Voice and Sing I. He served on the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council.At the Jan. 11 requiem, Bartlett will preside and be assisted by Pennsylvania Bishop Provisional Clifton Daniel III. The Rev. Harold T. Lewis, rector of Calvary Church, Pittsburgh, who succeeded Turner at the Church Center, will preach.Turner is survived by his wife, Barbara, and their children.

On that day the Bishop baptized several children and prayed over a group of candidates during Confirmation. At the end of the service he asked if anyone had a testimony (something that they would like to thank God for and tell others what was going on in their lives). He later encouraged me to continue that practice, and I have. I don’t always, but when I do I am always thankful for that advice. People should have the opportunity to give thanks in public for what God is doing in their lives. I will always have fond memories of the gentle giant, the Rt. Rev. Franklin D.

New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Collierville, TN Rector Tampa, FL Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest January 10, 2014 at 1:50 pm It was with profound sadness that I received the news of the passing of the Rt. Rev. Franklin Turner. This brought back many memories of our times as students together in l954 at Livingstone College where we were members of the Hood Seminary pre- theological Union. In the College he was a sophmore, and a spanish studies student, and there I served as the freshman class president. Like myself he left membership in the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, and was confirmed in the Episcopal Church. After college graduation he went on to seminary and ordination, while I studied and pursued a career in social work ,and later attended and graduated from Bexley Hall and Colgate Rochester Divinity and School, and wound up as a “worker priest” in the Washington,DC area where we caught up with one another again. By this time Frank was very much involved in the life of the church, particularly related to black church minorities affairs, and other social justice issues, within the church and society. His election to the episcoporate helped to open up the doors for many other minorities, both blacks and females, in particular, to follow him in that office in the life of our church. His work at the Black desk was significant, and helpful to many, in the several ways in which he served in the local and larger life of our Anglican-Episcopal Church. It is good to see the preacher at his service as the Rev, Dr. Harold T. Lewis, Canon and Rector of Calvary Church, Pittsburgh, another illuminate bright star, and a hero of faith, in his continuing work, and witness in our Church. Also the Rt. Rev. Clifton Daniel, III, who served excellently, and was my diocesan bishop, in the diocese of East Carolina, prior to my retirement as Rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, Wilmington, NC, and also prior to his present work as provisional bishop of Pensylvania. May the soul of my dear departed brother, the Rt. Reverend Franklin D. Turner, rest in peace and someday rise in glory with our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen! Also my sister, Gaynell Hairston Gunn, known to Bishop Turner’s wife, through connections at Bluefield State College, Bluefield, West Virginia, joins me in extending deepest sympathy to the family, and know that our prayers are with you always.

Winter House is a single residential unit whose main goal is being a shelter and a setting for the enjoyment of the land property’s pristine privileged nature, such as the outdoors and the country lifestyle. These are the main reasons why the blueprint is organized into four blocks, linked through the occupants’ control of permeability from the inside-out of the residence, for the layout to approach thanks to the textures accomplished on the volumes, rifts, and spans, into dynamic filters which extent or restrict spaces in order to the necessities.
