Corby Hall holds open house

first_imgFor young men at Notre Dame considering a religious vocation, the doors at Corby Hall are always open. On Wednesday night at 8 p.m., Corby Night, hosted by Holy Cross priests, brothers and seminarians, took place at Corby Hall for those young men discerning the priesthood. It began with a candlelight service in the chapel of the hall and was followed by a social hour, in which the undergraduates could get to know one another and speak with the religious leaders. Fr. Jim Gallagher, director of the Office of Vocations, said he could relate to young men deciding whether or not a life in the priesthood was right for them. “For the longest time it was on my mind but I never talked to anybody about it,” Gallagher said. “The most important thing is to talk to somebody.” Students at the event ranged from Notre Dame undergraduates and those living at Old College, the University’s undergraduate seminary for the Congregation of the Holy Cross, to seminarians who had already completed their undergraduate degree.  Vincent Nguyen, a Notre Dame senior who currently lives in Moreau Seminary, said he recognized his vocation as early as freshman year. “It was the community life and prayer life that brought it all together,” Nguyen said. As a seminarian, Nguyen said he is still an active member of the Notre Dame community and is able to balance the religious aspects of his life with academics and social activities.  “I’ve had practice with the balancing since I lived in Old College for the first three years,” Nguyen said. “I’m still involved on campus.” In the past 10 to 15 years, vocations to the priesthood in America have increased, Gallgher said. At a Catholic university such as Notre Dame, those thinking about committing to life as a priest have many resources to help them in their discernment, he said. “The sort of guys who might be thinking about a vocation will go to Notre Dame,” he said. “At Notre Dame there are a lot of opportunities to deepen one’s faith life.” However, a calling to the priesthood is not met without certain difficulties, he said. “One of the biggest challenges is commitment,” Gallagher said. “For young people today it’s hard because there are so many things for them to commit to.” Gallagher said talking to one of the many priests and brothers on campus is a good way for young men to introduce themselves and discuss their vocation. “My job is not to convince them to join the seminary,” Gallagher said. “My job is to help them decide whether or not the seminary is right for them.”last_img read more

Ronaldo: Sex better than my best goal

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Cristiano Ronaldo has claimed sex with model girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez is superior to the best goal of his glittering football career. The Juventus star revealed that his overhead kick for Real Madrid against his current side in April 2018 is his pick for his favourite goal ever, but it does not compare to being with his current partner. Ronaldo connected with a cross from Dani Carvajal to score an incredible goal in the 2017-18 Champions League quarter-final first leg. Upon seeing the goal, the home faithful in Turin gave Ronaldo a standing ovation, despite the Portugal star scoring for the visiting team. That goal would help see Real Madrid past Juventus into the semi-finals, where they would overcome Bayern Munich before then beating Liverpool in the final for their third consecutive Champions League win. Speaking to Piers Morgan in an interview on ITV, the 34-year-old has admitted the goal against the Old Lady was his favourite, but said he didn’t rate it above his experiences with Rodriguez between the sheets. “No, not [when compared] with my Geo, no!” Ronaldo said as he laughed at the question from Morgan. “I tried to score this goal for many, many years,” Ronaldo said. “I had scored 700-odd goals but I hadn’t done this. I thought: ‘Finally I had scored a bicycle, the beautiful jumping.’ “The way I had done against [Gianluigi] Buffon, against Juventus, in the Champions League. It was a beautiful goal.” Ronaldo may not have known it at the time, but just months after scoring that goal he would be joining Juventus following a legendary nine-year run at Real Madrid. The former Manchester United forward has said that the reception he received from Juve fans after scoring that goal helped to convince him to join the Serie A club. “When the people start to applaud me in the stadium I was like: ‘Wow,’” Ronaldo told DAZN last year. “[It] surprised me a lot because this has never happened in my life, so [it] was [an] unbelievable moment.”Tags: Champions LeagueCristiano RonaldoDani CarvajalGeorgina RodriguezLiverpoolReal Madridlast_img read more

Companies Are Dropping IE6; Vendors Follow Accordingly

first_imgWhile Internet Explorer 6 collapses in the enterprise, Internet Explorer 8 is picking up fast:“Current data from the exo.repository shows a dramatic spike in IE 8.0 adoption, with over 70% of Windows XP systems – sampled from the exo.performance.network’s IT-centric community of nearly 23,000 registered sites – now running Microsoft’s latest web browser. This compares to the less than 10% of XP systems that are still running the aging IE 6.0, and the roughly 20% who are stuck on the in-between version, IE 7.0.And now Google Apps, Salesforce.com and Atlassian have all dropped support.The Atlassian news appeared on its forums:“Hi guys,We are announcing our end of life of Atlassian support for Internet Explorer 6 on JIRA.This will be effective from the launch date of JIRA 4.2 (target Q3, 2010). This means that JIRA 4.1 will be the last version of JIRA to support IE6. (From JIRA 4.0 to JIRA 4.1, all of the main functionality will work in IE 6; however, some of the visual effects will be missing).”Socialtext is still providing support for IE6. Co-founder Ross Mayfield told us that, “as much as we would like to move beyond IE 6, we have enterprise-wide security-conscious customers that still require supporting it for their users. These are valuable forward looking customers for whom we must be backwards compatible.”Microsoft does not seem to be fighting the effort. They will continue to support the product. Here’s what the Microsoft IE blog states:“Dropping support for IE6 is not an option because we committed to supporting the IE included with Windows for the lifespan of the product. We keep our commitments. Many people expect what they originally got with their operating system to keep working whatever release cadence particular subsystems have.” Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Related Posts Tags:#enterprise#news#Trends Every product sees a twilight.
