New Hampshire diocese names three nominees for bishop coadjutor

first_img March 15, 2012 at 8:10 pm Bishop Robinson is a sign of hope for the ECUSA in the 21st century for his honesty, prophetic voice and great compassion for a broken world. His episcopate is historic and while controversy and maliciousness have swirled around, his presence has shone light on how deeply prejudice and ignorance are held up as some divinely revealed truth. We are forever grateful. Associate Rector Columbus, GA Peggy R.

Penelope Maud Bridges, 53, rector, St. Francis Episcopal Church, Great Falls, Virginia (Diocese of Virginia);the Rev. A.  Robert Hirschfeld, 51, rector, Grace Episcopal Church, Amherst, Massachusetts (Diocese of Western Massachusetts);the Rev. William Warwick Rich, 59, senior associate rector for Christian formation, Trinity Church, Boston, Massachusetts (Diocese of Massachusetts).More information about the nominees is here.Announcement of the slate opened a petition nomination process that closes March 25. Any additional candidates’ names are due to be announced on April 30, according to a timeline here.The bishop coadjutor will be elected May 19 at St. Paul’s Church in Concord.Because the election will occur close in time to the 77th meeting of the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in July, Episcopal Church canons provide (in Canon III.11.3) for the required consents to be sought from the bishops and deputies at convention.Assuming that consent is received, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori is scheduled to consecrate the bishop coadjutor on Aug. 4 at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord.On Jan. 5, 2013, the coadjutor will be installed as the 10th diocesan bishop at St. Paul’s Church.Robinson announced in November 2010 that he would retire in January 2013.“Death threats, and the now-worldwide controversy surrounding your election of me as bishop, have been a constant strain, not just on me, but on my beloved husband, Mark, who has faithfully stood with me every minute of the last seven years, and in some ways, you,” said Robinson, speaking at the conclusion of the diocese’s 208th annual convention in 2010. “While I believe that these attitudes, mostly outside the diocese, have not distracted me from my service to you, I would be less than honest if I didn’t say that they have certainly added a burden and certain anxiety to my episcopate.” March 16, 2012 at 8:05 pm Bishop Robinson would be remembered in the history of Anglican Church, Like King Henry VIII, pioneer of establishing Anglican Church from Roman Catholic in 1538. Whether, Bishop Robinson would be remembered as a pioneer of breaking the Anglican Church about 500 years after establishment, only time could tell. Interestingly both men, King Henry VIII and Bishop Robinson revolted against Church for their personal interest on sexual issues. One fought for allowing divorce from his wife and remarried another woman and the other fought for divorce from his wife and remarried to another same sex person, called him husband. Both actions are spiritually wrong according to words of God and traditional value, but both were successful in fulfilling their wishes. May God bless Bishop Robinson and his husband Mark for their new challenge in life.

The artist couple Barbara Müller and Stefan Gritsch lived for 25 years in the former carpenter’s workshop shed of Barbara Müller’s father. The sale of the building offered the couple the possibility to construct a new house in the yard of the building complex, on condition that the building costs did not exceed the funds raised from the sale.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsLightsLonghiLamp – AkileleEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornLightsLouis PoulsenLamps – AJ CollectionThe only feasible way to realise the substantial spatial program involved at the set price of CHF. 580,000 was to design the house in prefabricated wooden elements. The existence of a previous basement made excavation works superfluous and, after prefabrication, allowed the erection of building to be undertaken in record time. The end result was a cubic price of CHF. 480.Save this picture!However, it should be emphasised that the search for innovative solutions was not merely motivated by the cost constraints. The resulting architecture deliberately mirrors a conscious attitude that defies the polished superfluity so deeply ingrained in contemporary lifestyles and attempts instead to address more substantial issues. The finished project affords the artists, who spend much of their time at home, spatial variety and complexity, and encourages both users and visitors to explore and rediscover the house anew. In this sense the house constitutes an introverted vessel, complementing the nature of artistic work whilst simultaneously creating deliberate links with the outside world. Save this picture!Considerable emphasis was placed on the relation towards the surroundings. The windows are placed in such a manner to frame Lenzburg castle, the Staufberg or the Goffersberg as if they were pictures. In terms of urban planning, the polygonal volume and the neighboring carpenter’s workshop form a courtyard around which the studios and the kitchen are orientated. The 1 1/2-storey living room constitutes the spatial focus of the house out of which all of the rooms are elaborated around the central nucleus, containing the chimney and the staircase.Save this picture!The house is conceived as a spatial continuum, enabling a wide variety of spatial relations. Both of the two studios can be partitioned from each other, but simultaneously can be read as an extended living room.Project gallerySee allShow lessDe Rokade / Arons en Gelauff ArchitectenSelected ProjectsAquino House / Augusto Fernández Mas (K+A Diseño)Selected Projects Share Area:  232 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Architects: AFGH Area Area of this architecture project “COPY”last_img read more

PFRA to publish annual benchmarks for breaches of face-to-face fundraising rules

Only agencies and charities running in-house teams accrue penalty points.The Benchmark will also give the average number of points issued for breaches of the three types of rules: Advertisement Administrative rules – e.g. failing to submit diary requests on time.Charities who are PFRA members will receive details of points issued on campaigns conducted for them by agencies.Individual PFRA provider members, namely fundraising agencies and charities running in-house teams. will be informed of their own individual average compliance scores, plus their average scores for operational, conduct and administrative rules.The Street F2F Compliance Benchmark will be accompanied by a graph showing average points awarded during each month of the financial year. This will indicate whether the average is increasing, decreasing or is stable. What is a compliance visit?A compliance visit is a mystery shopping exercise by one of PFRA’s official contractors or a site check by a member of the PFRA’s compliance team. Activities are analysed against a checklist of potential rule breaches.Interim report in NovemberBefore the first annual report next year, PFRA will publish an interim report in November 2013. This will provide results from the first full year of operation since the penalties and standards regime was introduced in September 2012.Nick Henry, the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association’s head of standards and allocations, said that their standards procedures now provided “the most rigorous system of enforcement and compliance for any type of fundraising”.He added: “Our annual benchmark will give an overall indication of how well or badly our members perform and gives our members the opportunity to publicise how well they are performing against the benchmark. After a few years, we will have enough information to start identifying long-term trends in compliance.”Image: tick and crosses by alexndr on Shutterstock.com PFRA to publish annual benchmarks for breaches of face-to-face fundraising rules Operational rules – relating to stipulations contained in PFRA site agreements and the operation of fundraising, such as standing too close to a shop, leaving bags unattended, or working off-delineation.

Youth march against capitalism at World Business Forum

first_imgPhoto: Desirée J. DeLoachNew York — The capitalist class held an event at New York’s Radio City Music Hall on Oct. 7-8 called the World Business Forum. Five thousand of the richest CEOs and bankers met there to share their experiences in how to slash benefits, lower wages and bust unions.Outraged by this display of vast wealth in a time of prolonged crisis for the working class, Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST), a militant youth organization, decided to cut to the heart of the issue and called for a march against the entire system that allows for such crimes — capitalism itself.Young revolutionaries from New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore met in Columbus Circle before the march with signs, banners and flags. Notable were several flags from the former Soviet Union and even one from the anti-fascist group Union Borotba, which is currently fighting in eastern Ukraine. Some protesters held up images of Che Guevara to honor this revolutionary internationalist on the anniversary of his death. Some signs read, “The real enemy is on Wall St.!”Carried out as a people’s class on Marxism and anti-imperialism in the streets, the march traveled to eight different locations around midtown Manhattan, including statues of Simon Bolivar and Jose Marti, Chase Bank, Fox News and St. Patrick’s Cathedral.Activists spoke out about national liberation struggles in Latin America, represented by the statues of Simon Bolivar and Jose Marti. These two are heroes in their countries, Venezuela and Cuba, respectively, and offer inspiration for revolutions against imperialism.Chase Bank, one of the largest private banks in the world, is an icon of finance capital and thus a natural target for the march. Speakers discussed the role of the imperialist banks, how they have come to dominate the capitalist economy, subordinating all other industries and causing wars.Supporting the banks in their drive for wars to secure profits are the corporate news outlets and media. Among the most jingoistic and reactionary of these is Fox News. Interestingly, their headquarters is only one block away from Chase’s own headquarters, illustrating who they really take their orders from. Speakers denounced wars of aggression and the hypocrisy of so-called freedom of the press under capitalism, while underscoring the need for socialist revolution.The institution of the Catholic Church, represented by St. Patrick’s Cathedral, has for centuries been a bastion of misogyny and homophobia. Activists spoke on the issues of reproductive rights, the inequality of women in the church, and the church’s history of violence and bigotry against lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people.At the conclusion of the march, activists converged on a rally held by the New York People’s Power Assembly in front of Radio City Music Hall. Demands were raised for a $15-an-hour minimum wage and a union for all workers, as well as rights for immigrants and an end to police terror.The young revolutionaries who took part in the march were energetic and determined to end this criminal capitalist system and build a better world. When protesters were taunted by  bankers at Chase, they stood defiant and laughed. They knew that for each protester on that day there would soon be 10,000 more, and they wouldn’t only be holding signs and chanting. They would be seizing those very same banks, taking back all the wealth that had been stolen, and building a new world based on human needs, not capitalist greed.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Kittle, Ph.D., vice president, research and development, Dow AgroSciences. “Broad adoption of EXZACT by industry partners, such as Monsanto, expands access to solutions that will improve grower productivity and profitability.”Both companies noted that genome-editing technology and the broad array of emerging genome-editing techniques, including the zinc finger nuclease (ZFN) technology in EXZACT, represent key scientific applications that can deliver breakthroughs in agriculture. Monsanto believes that genome-editing technologies will enable plant breeders to deliver better hybrids and varieties more efficiently, as well as offer plant scientists additional resources to provide new improvements in plant biotechnology.

Photo courtesy of Tim Anderson.Social media has the power to make the world smaller, and Instagram gave a local 8th-grade football player the opportunity to communicate with his idol.Luke Anderson, who attends and plays for Calvary Christian Academy in Fort Worth, suits up at quarterback and linebacker. Senior TCU football player Ty Summers was a quarterback in high school until he transitioned to linebacker at TCU.“I’ve always wanted to talk to him, but I just started getting serious with football, so I thought I could use some help,” Anderson said.Anderson direct messaged him on Instagram, but he did not expect a reply because of Summers’ popularity. Summers has over 8,000 followers on Instagram.“Most people like that are super busy and most people like that wouldn’t answer because they have a lot of followers,” Anderson said.Summers replied, and to Anderson’s astonishment, he even reviewed his game film.“He said, ‘Hey Luke,’ and it just went from there,” Anderson said. “I asked him for pointers and hoped he would get back to me and he responded to me within 30 minutes.”Summers said he was going to try to come to one of his middle school football games.“Most athletes would just say they would try, but they wouldn’t mean it,” Anderson said. “With Ty, I knew he was a kind enough person that I thought he will probably come.”The only problem was timing.“Unfortunately, all his games started at 5:30, which conflicts with our practice so I wasn’t able to,” Summers said.But the rain throughout October had a silver lining. Rain delayed the kickoff time for the Oct. 18 matchup between Calvary Christian and Trinity Christian Academy, giving Summers an opportunity to attend.“It was in Aledo, so only about 25 minutes so I figured why not,” Summers said. “I know that if I was a kid that looked up to a college athlete that it would mean a lot if he came to my game too.”Midway through the first quarter of Luke’s game, Ty arrived, and the Anderson family was stunned.“I told my brother, Luke’s uncle, and a number of other people that my son thought Ty might be there and we were all thinking that’s just not going to happen,” said Tim, Luke’s dad. “When he showed up, my brother and I saw the guy in purple walking into the stadium.”Summers was part of the Anderson family for a night. He stood beside the family the entire game.“Once we saw him in the stands, we greeted him and he was with us the rest of the game,” Tim said. “It was awesome having him right there putting in his two cents right there as Luke was playing. Ty was commenting on every single play.”Summers watched as Luke applied Summers’ advice on defense to shuffle his feet and then run to the ball carrier instead of running immediately to go make the tackle. On offense, Luke remembered to keep the football tucked tightly under his arm.TCU linebacker Ty Summers looks on proudly at Luke Anderson (11) following Calvary Christian Academy’s 48-36 win over Trinity Christian Academy.According to his dad, Luke played his best game that night, recording two touchdowns, two passing and two rushing.“His defense at linebacker was top-notch,” Tim said. “He definitely stepped it up knowing Ty was there. They won 48-36.”The Anderson’s hope the game visit wasn’t the last they’ll see of Summers, which appears to be the case.“I messaged Ty and said ‘I hope he’s not driving you crazy’ and he responded by saying ‘Absolutely not, Luke’s a good kid,’” Tim said.

They will be joined by members of the French Foreign Legion Association of Ireland and members of the Irish Defence Forces as well as Limerick’s Boherbuoy Band.A talk by Cornelius O’Sullivan, President of En Garde, on the history of the Wild Geese and their impact on the shared history of France and Ireland will be followed by a gun salute by En Garde members.Mayor Michael Sheahan said that one of his priorities was to honour the Limerick diaspora and he had called for a ‘Wild Geese Festival’ to remember them and their contribution.“I’m delighted that, together with the new Honorary Consul of France in Limerick, a special celebration around Bastille Day is taking place. Limerick and France have many ties, the Wild Geese among them, and it’s great that we are beginning to look at and celebrate this connection.“Newly appointed Honorary Consul of France Loïc Guyon said the event will symbolise “an annual celebration of the long-lasting friendship between our two nations.”“The Flight of the Wild Geese brought our two countries closer than ever before, with so many Irish men and women settling in France and, for many of them, integrating into French society in very successful ways.“The fact that the Limerick Wild Geese Festival will be scheduled every year on the Sunday of or immediately preceding Bastille Day is highly symbolic. This year’s event will only be a small-scale version of what we are hoping to organise from next year onwards but should already be a very special and enjoyable experience for all”.Shannon Heritage managing director Niall O’Callaghan said that, as operators of King John’s Castle, they were delighted to be associated with an event that strengthened Franco-Hibernian relations and showed how the castle was embedded in Limerick’s history.Registration for Limerick’s Bastille Day celebration takes place at 1pm at the entrance to King John’s Castle.

The historical episode known as the ‘Flight of the Wild Geese’ refers to the 12,000 Irish Jacobite soldiers, commanded by Patrick Sarsfield, who left Ireland for France as agreed in the Treaty of Limerick in 1691 ending the Williamite War in Ireland.

She is fluent in both English and Italian, and studied abroad in Florence, Italy.

Born and raised in Texas, Baer now works as the online editor for DS News. A new report from CoreLogic’s Andrew LePage found that San Francisco – a market known for its astronomical home prices – has started to show signs of cooling. This is indicative of a broader housing trend of markets “self-correcting” instead of bubbling.In a research report conducted by Realtor.com, it was found that the national housing market has significantly recovered post-crisis with home prices growing significantly in recent years. They predicted that the unstainable price increases seen in San Francisco as well as other cities such as San Jose and Austin would naturally taper off due to people choosing to rent over buy, move in with family or roommates, or relocate to a housing market that is more affordable.This prediction is ringing true when it comes to San Francisco. According to the CoreLogic analysis, the housing market anomaly experienced a decrease in existing home sales through August of 2016 compared to the same period in the year prior. LePage says that this is due to conditions in the market being significantly different from those of pre-crisis.“One key difference between now and a decade ago is that today’s home prices don’t appear to be as far out of line with incomes, even though prices jumped about 60 percent over the past four and a half years,” says LePage. “CoreLogic calculates a long-term sustainable home price level based on the historical relationship between its Home Price Index (HPI) and a region’s per-capita disposable income. In July, this year the price level for the San Francisco metro division was 1.2 percent above the long-term sustainable price level. Near the peak of the last cycle home prices were 20 percent higher than the long-term sustainable level.”The San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward metro area’s market condition indicator was rated as normal by the CoreLogic HPI based on the long-term fundamental values, which are a function of real disposable income per capita. This means that despite the increase in home prices, income is holding pace.Another measure of market “self-correction” is the decreased flipping activity in San Francisco, says the report. Specifically, the third quarter of 2016 had a reported 2.1 percent of the homes flipped in the San Francisco-Oakland-Hayward metro area, which was a decrease from 2.3 percent from the year prior. The report also found that this rate was significantly lower than the 5.9 percent peak in first quarter 2005.Realtor.com postulates that the decrease in flipping is yet another factor pointing toward the market tapering off instead of bubble because flipping is one of the six factors quintessential to the housing bubble and subsequent housing crisis in the 2000’s.In addition to these trends marking “self-correction” and health in the housing market, CoreLogic reports that home purchase loan applications through August were stagnant compared the year prior. Further, the home inventory increased approximately 22 percent year-over-year.LePage says that now the biggest risk factors appear to be external to the market. These include slower job growth, a prolonged stock market sell-off, and higher mortgage rates.“While San Francisco faces a variety of possible external threats, it doesn’t appear to be beset by the same internal risks seen a decade ago,” says LePage.To read the full analysis from CoreLogic, click HERE.
