Shareholdersshow disdain for Dell chief

first_img DELL founder Michael Dell survived an investor savaging during his re-election to chief executive, with more than a quarter of voters withholding their support.Shareholders are furious at the firm’s fall from being the biggest computer manufacturer in the world to its current third place behind Hewlett-Packard (HP) and Acer. Dell’s stock is down more than 50 per cent since August 2008 and the company recently paid $100m (£64m) to settle a government probe into some of its accounting practices.The company has made a mix of major and small acquisitions in the past year as it tries to diversify beyond personal computers. This week it said it had agreed to pay $1.15bn to buy data storage company 3PAR.But the strategy was not enough for 25.1 per cent of Dell shareholders, who refused to back the chief executive at the firm’s annual meeting on 12 August.The firm is facing fierce competition from rivals including Oracle and Cisco Systems, which are expanding into new corporate technology markets, while smartphone and tablet technology from Apple and Google threatens to erode PC sales.Meanwhile, Hewlett-Packard (HP), which dazzled Wall Street with rock-steady performances during Mark Hurd’s five-year reign, also faces investor pressure.Its shares are down 11 per cent since Hurd announced his abrupt departure on 6 August amid a sexual harassment scandal.It will hold its quarterly earnings conference with analysts later today. The focus will be on HP’s strategy and its ability to keep up momentum across its diverse businesses. whatsapp Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Shareholdersshow disdain for Dell chief Wednesday 18 August 2010 7:52 pm KCS-content whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

England: Five things we learned v Scotland

first_imgSomething from nothingHaving steadily laid down foundations since 2012 – cooperative culture, a solid set piece and iron self-discipline – Lancaster now has 18 months to hone finer points ahead of a home World Cup. One such aspect, which can transform England from plucky pretenders to genuine contenders in 2015, is potency with ball in hand. Structures and collective understanding form a big part of this. However, Lancaster also knows the power of unpredictability.A “something from nothing player” is his term for the talent to conjure a piece of brilliance from outside the box. Injured Christian Wade is the archetype, but Jonny May and Jack Nowell are not far behind at all. May was a constant threat this weekend, stepping and spinning to bamboozle Scottish tacklers with running lines far removed from any coaching manual. Nowell had to graft, but ignited a dull period with an explosive step, brushing off Matt Scott to set up Brown’s score. Confidence in maverick ability is extremely un-English. It’s great that Lancaster is breaking that mould.Better at the breakdown, but a bigger battle aheadIn Paris, Yannick Nyanga turned out the sort of performance that compels punters to spout garbage about how Chris Robshaw is not an international openside. France’s industry on the deck – forcing a few turnovers as support got detached from the carrier – could have been a factor in Scott Johnson handing Chris Fusaro a first cap. Perhaps Scotland thought their England’s ruck-work would be a glaring weakness. It wasn’t. It isn’t.Fusaro did make a very commendable debut and was the game’s top tackler with 16. However, he was not able to influence the breakdown as irritatingly well as he does for Glasgow Warriors. Robshaw and Tom Wood were good around the park and though there were a couple of penalties as England fell off their feet while clearing out, they will welcome Ireland – and their phenomenal jackalling – feeling buoyant. Chris Henry and Peter O’Mahony are nuisance geniuses. They need to be nullified at Twickenham.Drops it like it’s hot: Danny Care drops a goalCare the conductor EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND – FEBRUARY 08: Danny Care of England scores a drop kick goal during the RBS Six Nations match between Scotland and England at Murrayfield Stadium on February 8, 2014 in Edinburgh, Scotland. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Up for the Cup: Robshaw and his cohorts took the Calcutta, but will they kick on against Ireland in Round 3?By Charlie MorganThis could and should have been a far more difficult obstacle for England to negotiate. Wet weather, a notoriously stodgy surface and Murrayfield’s raw hostility were meant to unsettle Stuart Lancaster’s intrepid but inexperienced charges – at least enough to make things competitive.As it was, a 20-0 defeat actually flattered Scotland. Besides a couple of Dave Denton charges and some valiant scramble defence, the home crowd had precious little to rally behind. In a game that was painfully dour at times, England’s triumph was never in serious doubt. Still, some valuable pointers emerged. In-form Ireland arrive at Twickenham on February 22. England must be on the money.Leaving points on the pitchWanting more: Brown thinks England can score moreWinning ugly is a valuable trait that Lancaster has instilled very effectively. This was the 15th triumph from 24 matches across his two-year tenure to date. Tenacious tackling and mental resilience have rarely gone missing. Keeping Scotland scoreless for the first time in this fixture since 1978 – no mean feat at all – seemed a routine accomplishment. Defensive standards are taken for granted. Now to polish the other side of the coin.As Man of the Match Mike Brown said at the final whistle, England’s emphasis this Six Nations has been on moulding their attack into a world-class operation. Encouragingly, some of the spark we saw in Paris survived in the Edinburgh mud. Cohesion and skills are improving and the lineout has become a launchpad, as Luther Burrell’s try demonstrated. That said, a ruthless edge needs sharpening.At Murrayfield on Saturday, England made ten clean breaks for 20 points. At Twickenham in November, New Zealand made five for 30. Support play and that final pass are major differences between World Cup contenders and champions. A tally of 65 per cent possession and 76 per cent territory in the second half indicates decent game management, but also inadequate finishing. The next step for this exciting team is to be cold and clinical after locating any sign of weakness.Launchbury and Lawes lock it downGraham Rowntree’s pack was back to somewhere near its best against Scotland and the engine room once more excelled. Joe Launchbury and Courtney Lawes complement each other fantastically – the former is a relentless workhorse who careers into upwards of 40 rucks each game, the latter an astounding athlete with a healthy hint of menace. Between them, England’s locks made 15 tackles and a turnover in Edinburgh. Lawes ran the lineout supremely, taking 11 of his team’s 22 throws and stealing two more. The Northampton Saint also found time to rack up ten carries.One of an impressive pair: Joe Launchbury takes clean ballSecond rows often don’t peak until their 30s, so Launchbury (22) and Lawes (24) could easily win 100 caps each and drive England on for the best part of a decade. Dynamic and physically domineering, they embody Rowntree’s vision for a versatile set of forwards that is both brawny and try-scoring. Alongside South Africans Eben Etzebeth and Pieter-Steph du Toit and Kiwis Brodie Retallick and Sam Whitelock, this duo rank among the very best prospects on the planet. That is no exaggeration. A little faith can go a long way. When Danny Care was cast out of the England set-up 24 months ago after a drink-driving offence, many coaches would have lost patience. Luckily for the Harlequin, Lancaster knows him inside out and must have had an inkling that exile would have made him hungrier. Now 27 and into his second-wind as a number nine – relying on speed of thought and tactical awareness rather than just lightning pace and impulse – Care has turned out consecutive performances that make you wonder how England ever did without him.Another drop-goal at Murrayfield was superbly audacious, but the weight of box-kicking – most of them contestable for his chasing wingers – was much improved. A running threat will always be there, as evidenced by the direction of Duncan Weir’s shoulders before Burrell’s try, but a new-found maturity is coming. As at lock and full back, England are blessed with scrum-half options. Care had always been considered more skilful than Ben Youngs and Lee Dickson, but less rounded. Those days are over.last_img read more

Presiding Bishop’s Easter message: ‘Give thanks for Easter’

first_img March 31, 2012 at 6:45 pm Why is it so difficult for our Presiding Bishop to say the name ‘Jesus’? She said ‘resurrection’ 3 times and finally referenced God in the last few seconds but mainly focused on the Millennium Development Goals. Does Jesus not rate high enough to even be mentioned by our Chief Pastor? Are we a church or just another social justice organization? Thomas Andrew says: April 13, 2012 at 9:09 pm Matt 10:32 ” Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven.”It sadly appears that our PB has forgotten or chooses to forget that this is the most holy day of the Christian year. One can only hope she repents before it is too late, because we are warned that leaders of the faith are held to a higher accountablility. April 8, 2012 at 1:12 am As a cradle Episcopalian, I find it remarkable that the PB is a Unitarian. Rector Martinsville, VA Oscar Price says: April 3, 2012 at 5:24 pm Well said!

Easter???? Paula is right, Easter is a secular holiday for rabbits and baskets and fashion parades. Where is the world’s Savior, the resurrected Messiah? David D. Wells says: April 11, 2012 at 12:54 am As someone who has lived, not in the southern hemisphere, but close to the equator, I can appreciate Bishop Katherine’s statement. Many of our Easter hymns, in which we rejoice in the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ, are also very much spring hymns. A few lines will suffice to make the point:Hymn 175: Lo, the fair beauty of earth, from the death of the winter arisingHymn 179: Earth her joy confesses, clothing her for spring…. days of lengthening lightHymn 199: Tis the spring of souls today…all the winter of our sins, long and dark is flyingHymn 211 The birds do sing on every boughAlthough the other hymns are not so specific, northern hemisphere Christians do associate Easter, for obvious reasons, with spring. It is thus important for us to understand how different it may feel to celebrate Easter in the southern hemisphere where the season is fall. Perhaps our southern hemisphere brothers and sisters can help us rejoice in Jesus’s resurrection even when our lives feel as dead as the fall leaves. That’s what the church in Japan is doing, and that is what we followers of Jesus do whenever we feed the hungry, visit those in prison, clothe the naked, and so on. It seems that the millenium development goals are necessary because whatever we do for the least of these our brethren, we do for Jesus. Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Patricia Black says: Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Rector Tampa, FL Louis Clark says: April 2, 2012 at 3:31 pm Easter isn’t the best time of season, a belief of mine, at least, the ascension is a reminder of what the human mind is, complete with verbal conviction of church and government, I prefer to forgive and work on commandments, by looking forward too Pentecost, Whitsunday, I particularly like When a Vigil of Pentecost is observed. We continue to receive through faith the promises of Almighty God, as as this does not stop through or because we remember Easter, eternal life to every race and nation, preaching of the Gospel, and the gift of the Holy Spirit, by the same Spirit to have Right judgement in all things. and since we always know that we are weaker as individuals and even as a large group, how weak we are without the Holy Spirit.Always present, Always guiding, Always faithful Brad Howard says: In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Presiding Bishop’s Easter message: ‘Give thanks for Easter’ April 1, 2012 at 8:08 pm Is it too hard for the Presiding Bishop to mention the word JESUS? So deeply disappointed with this church… Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA April 2, 2012 at 5:56 pm I am sadly reminded of Paul’s second epistle to Timothy in which Paul warns of a coming time “when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth.”The Bible tells us that the truth of a crucified and dead Jesus, who was then risen from the grave in a bodily resurrection, is foolishness to those who are perishing. The Bible also tells us that this truth is the power of God to those who are being saved. Do we, as a church, view this truth as the power of God? Or do we view Christ crucified and risen as a “foolishness” which may be omitted from Easter messages to enlightened, 21st century listeners?

Give thanks for the presence of God incarnate in our midst.”The presiding bishop’s message on video is here.She also noted, “In this Easter season I would encourage you to look at where you are finding new life and resurrection, where life abundant and love incarnate are springing up in your lives and the lives of your communities.”The following is a transcript of the presiding bishop’s Easter message.__________________________________________Easter 2012One of my favorite Easter hymns is about greenness. “Now the green blade riseth from the buried grain.”It goes on to talk about love coming again. It’s a reminder to me of how centered our Easter images are in the Northern hemisphere. We talk about greenness and new life and life springing forth from the earth when we talk about resurrection.I often wonder what Easter images come in the Southern hemisphere, and I think that the church in the south has something to teach us about that.I was in Japan a month or so ago, and visiting the area of Japan that was so affected by the tsunami and the aftermath of the earthquake. The earth there is — was at that point — largely colorless, brown, in the middle of winter. No greenness. But at the same time the work of the Nippon Sei Ko Kai, the Japanese church in that part of Japan, has brought a great deal of new life, life abundant for people who have been devastated and displaced, who are still mourning their loss of loved ones, the loss of their homes and employment.New life comes in many forms, even in seasons that seem fairly wintry.As we began Lent, I asked you to think about the Millennium Development Goals and our work in Lent as a re-focusing of our lives. I’m delighted to be able to tell you that the U.N. report this last year has shown some significant accomplishment in a couple of those goals, particularly in terms of lowering the rates of the worst poverty, and in achieving better access to drinking water and better access to primary education. We actually might reach those goals by 2015. That leaves a number of other goals as well as what moves beyond the goals to full access for all people to abundant life.In this Easter season I would encourage you to look at where you are finding new life and resurrection, where life abundant and love incarnate are springing up in your lives and the lives of your communities. There is indeed greenness, whatever the season.Give thanks for Easter. Give thanks for resurrection. Give thanks for the presence of God incarnate in our midst.The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal Church David Halsted says: Tags March 31, 2012 at 3:52 pm So very sad. The highlight of the Christian year- the celebration of the Paschal Mystery, the death and resurrection of Our Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ – is relegated to a progress report on the UN MDGs. And if we’re talking about favorite hymns at this time of year, mine would have to be a rousing chorus of “Jesus Christ is Risen Today! Alleluia!” Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Lise Cujar says: Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME April 2, 2012 at 4:06 pm “It’s a reminder to me of how centered our Easter images are in the Northern hemisphere.” Yes, our Easter hymns are “centered” on the Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, and rightly so, unlike the PB’s blathering rant about the UN. Did someone inadvertently slip her the wrong job description? She does realize she was consecrated a bishop (just one among peers, I might add), not installed as the Secretary General of the UN, right? Furthermore, I missed that part in the gospels where it told us at what point in history the Great Commission was to be replaced with UN Millennium Goals. Is that in one of the gnostic gospels, perhaps (I’m a little rusty on those, I must admit), or something cooked up by Dan Brown? Julian Malakar says: April 2, 2012 at 8:34 am I can’t express what I think of this pantheistic statement that takes the place of the praise of Jesus Christ. Easter images? Greeness? This is more like a motivation memo to employees of the Department of Social Services.The election of bishops matters.

I attended the Sunday Eucharist but not the risk of the Niobrara Convocation. When we arrived at the tent for worship, beautiful Native American star quilts were being auctioned by Episcopalian priests (primarily white) to the highest bidder. We were surrounded by the stark beauty of the Badlands. This place was only miles from Cuny Table where Native Americans danced the ghost dance in preparation for the return of the Messiah. The ultimate result was the massacre at Wounded Knee. No recognition of this was mentioned. This, indeed, was sacred ground. It seemed stereotypical to me. White Christians auctioning Native American art….in preparation of Eucharist. And while Bishop Curry yelled “save the children”, very few were in attendance. He also stated that it is important to “love yourself.” I am honoring that mandate by stating my views. Social justice can not be obtained without reflection of personal beliefs. I honor the Native American elders who were present. And the Episcopal Church in Pine Ridge which served as a make shift hospital in December of 1890. It is boarded up now.

The project was created by the Rev. Michael Cunningham, in a black shirt and seated, and the Rev. Robert Two Bulls Jr., seated at right. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Red Shirt Table, South Dakota] The congregation here, Christ Episcopal, is known as a family church, where the longtime pastor and family patriarch, the Rev. Robert Two Bulls Sr., has led services for decades in a small building overlooking the western edge of South Dakota’s Badlands on Pine Ridge Reservation.His ancestors arrived in the Red Shirt area in the late 1800s, “like a ship going through uncharted waters, but they fell in love with this place,” Two Bulls said. They built the first log church here in 1909.The Rev. Robert Two Bulls Sr. hosted this year’s Niobrara Convocation at his family church, Christ Episcopal, overlooking the west edge South Dakota’s Badlands. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceIt is a tiny congregation in one of the poorest counties in the United States, but Two Bulls has long dreamed of hosting the Niobrara Convocation, an annual gathering of Sioux Episcopalians. So last week, in an encampment full of welcoming smiles, few smiles were broader than that of Two Bulls as the 145th Niobrara Convocation convened in a big-top tent next to his church.Several hundred attended June 22-25, as they have nearly every year since 1870. Two Bulls’ daughter, the Rev. Twilla Two Bulls, was ordained a deacon in the Saturday afternoon service, and Presiding Bishop Michael Curry delivered a rousing sermon June 25 at the convocation’s concluding Sunday service.Themes of family and oneness seemed to be on the tip of every tongue.“We all come from one God who made us all, and if we only got one God, I’m your brother,” Curry said toward the end of his half-hour sermon.Family and relationship-building has been the driving force behind the Red Shirt Project, which served as a common thread running through much of this year’s convocation. The project’s youth missionary team helped with everything from raising the tents to preparing Saturday’s much-anticipated bison dinner.The Red Shirt Project began in 2000 as a fledgling partnership between Two Bulls’ son, the Rev. Robert Two Bulls Jr., and the Rev. Michael Cunningham. It now organizes an annual summer road trip, bringing young people from the Los Angeles area to South Dakota to work with the local Oglala Lakota community on service projects.“We’ve got to live the Gospel. We’ve got to work the Gospel,” said Cunningham, rector of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Lompoc, California.Participants on past trips to Red Shirt have helped build a baseball field, an arbor and a straw-bale structure that someday will be used as a coffee shop and store.“It’s being in the community, doing the work of the Gospel, which is very Lakota,” said Two Bulls Jr., who serves the Diocese of Minnesota as director of its Department of Indian Work. “We always help each other out. It’s just what you do.”Bishop Don Tamihere speaks June 23 during a business session of the Niobrara Convocation. He was part of a Maori delegation from New Zealand that traveled to South Dakota with the Red Shirt Project. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceThis year, the project’s group of 37 missionaries included a six-person Maori delegation from New Zealand, led by Bishop Don Tamihere.“Indigenous people tend to share a common soul,” Tamihere said.He and his diocese have been involved with Red Shirt Project for about 10 years, and they were eager to show their support for the Niobrara Convocation. The historic oppression and marginalization that the Maori have experienced in New Zealand mirror American Indians’ plight, he said.A reunion built on communityThe Episcopal Church’s involvement with the Sioux began in the mid- to late-1800s, when the federal government offered land to various Christian denominations in exchange for their complicity in its effort to force Indians to assimilate into the white settlers’ culture through the reservations system.Today, Niobrara Convocation still functions like a family reunion, with tribal elders and church leaders reporting on what has happened in the past year in their congregations across the Niobrara Missionary District, created in 1871 and including parts or all of what are now North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and Nebraska.Some of the reports are bleak: Poverty is a persistent challenge in many Native American communities, as it is here. The pool of clergy members is spread thin. Those who are active spend much of their time presiding over funerals. Drug use is on the rise, and suicide is a constant scourge.“That’s not supposed to happen,” Troy “Scott” Weston, the Oglala Sioux tribal president, said June 23 during one of the business sessions. “We are supposed to give our children a chance to live and be free the way they want to be.”And yet, these gatherings also are filled with great joy and solidarity. Among the elders and church leaders presenting reports in a session known as “ingathering” was Gladys Hawk of St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church in Wakpala, South Dakota. Her son assisted her to the microphone so she could present donations that the congregation raised for the Niobrara Council.“Even though there are not too many of us [elders] left up there, we stay busy,” Hawk said.She is 79, and afterward, she said she never misses a Niobrara. This year, she brought a quilt to auction, to raise money for a new multipurpose building at St. Elizabeth’s. The addition would provide the church with access to modern restrooms for the first time, among other improvements.South Dakota Bishop John Tarrant described Niobrara Convocation as unlike any other gathering on the Episcopal Church’s calendar, starting with its minimal cost to attend – little more than the gas money to get there, if you’re willing to pitch a tent on the grounds.“This is about relationship,” Tarrant said during the June 23 session. “It’s about relationship with each other, it’s about relationship with God and, I would suggest to you, it’s about relationship with the Earth.”And the ordination June 24 was a jubilant moment. About 200 turned out for the service, nearly the same number as would attend the worship service the next day and hear Curry’s sermon.The new deacon, Twilla Two Bulls, 58, was a figure of constant movement over the weekend, accepting congratulations while making the rounds to ensure meal preparation was progressing on schedule.South Dakota Bishop John Tarrant celebrates the Eucharist during the diaconate ordination of the Rev. Twilla Two Bulls, standing next to Tarrant, on June 24. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceShe has helped with worship services at Christ Episcopal for 50 years, since she learned to play the church organ as a child. Now as a deacon she will be able to play a greater role in keeping this family church running.At her ordination, she was surrounded by family, including Cunningham, who has been adopted into the Two Bulls family as a brother. He delivered the service’s sermon, offering Twilla Two Bulls advice and encouragement.“This, my dear sister, is like no other day of your life,” Cunningham said. “Our lives are lived in community, and it is your community that is affirming what God created in you at your formation. … Look at your family. They are affirming this to you. Your ancestors are here, affirming this to you.”‘We are one people’This year’s Niobrara was bittersweet for Cunningham. The Friday morning Eucharistic service, with Two Bulls Sr. as celebrant, was dedicated to the memory of Cunningham’s wife, the Rev. Deborah Dunn, who died suddenly in April from complications of a stroke. She was 65.Dunn, ordained in 1991, was rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Santa Maria, California. She and Cunningham had just celebrated their 40th anniversary.“She was a remarkable priest, a remarkably gifted priest,” Cunningham said.He still speaks of her death with some difficulty, his emotions still raw, but he said he isn’t one to blame God for such inexplicable loss. Rather, “I do think God’s in the business of comforting us,” he said. And “as hard as it is to be here without my wife, it’s still phenomenal.”Cunningham, 62, marveled at the notion of oneness found in various indigenous traditions. In the Lakota language, for example, there is a saying, “mitakuye oyasin,” that sometimes is translated “all are related.”“We’re all connected,” Two Bulls Jr. explained, “because we all live on this Earth.”Cunningham said he has heard the native people of Alaska use a phrase with a similar meaning. And in New Zealand, the Maori have a saying, “he whanau kotahi tatou,” which means “we are one people.”Tamihere said he sees parallels, as a Christian, to Jesus’ command to “love your neighbor.” But the Maori also can hear in the New Testament echoes of their own native beliefs.“Our first response to the Gospel was to say, ‘That’s very familiar,’ ” he said.“God has done this cool trick,” Tamihere continued. By putting a piece of himself in everyone, “you can’t know God without meeting his people.”The 145th Niobrara Convocation concluded July 25 with a Sunday service that featured a sermon by Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceCurry, in his Sunday sermon, initially was fired up by the Old Testament reading. He used the story of Hagar and her son, Ishmael, in Genesis 21 to make a point about the generational struggle against oppression. God told Hagar to fear not, because Ishmael would grow up to become a great nation.“We must save the child,” Curry boomed, “because the child you save today may be the adult who saves you tomorrow.”He repeated the sentence several times in the sermon. He later developed his point in the context of “the dynamics of oppression.” Teach a people to hate themselves and their traditions, and it becomes easy to control them, Curry said, equating the experience of African-Americans to that of Native Americans.But Curry quizzed the congregation: What were Jesus’ two great commandments? “Love the lord your God,” and “love your neighbor as yourself.”“And I want to throw in ‘love yourself,’” Curry said. “Teach the children to love God, to love their neighbor, to love each other and love themselves. And I’m telling you, that child in your hand will be blessed by God and can become a great nation.”The worshipers were receptive to Curry’s message, but the day before, he was on the receiving end of a spiritual challenge.During the service of ordination, Bishop Tamihere presented several Maori cultural items as gifts to the Episcopal leaders gathered there. He concluded by saying he offered the gifts with a cost attached.His people suffered for centuries under colonial rule and an Anglican structure that, for much of the church’s time in New Zealand, deprived the Maori of a full voice in their church.“But we continued to believe in the Gospel and continued to believe in God’s call,” Tamihere said, and now the Maori have won greater autonomy. His position as bishop is evidence of that progress.Therefore, Tamihere said, the gifts he presented to Episcopal Church leaders come with this cost:“That you would consider the plight of your native people, that you would do all that you can to alleviate the injustices that are still visited upon them … that you will expend all the energy that you have within your heart, body and soul to raise more native lay leaders, more native deacons, more native priests and more native bishops, so that there will be no injustice to be found in any corner of any diocese that you are responsible for.“And I implore you to do that in Jesus’ name.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

K-12 school superintendents lay out their proposal for reopening Florida schools

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. Florida’s 2.8 million K-12 students are returning to reopened schools next academic year, but when and how they will do so in a “new normal” remains unknown.“Preliminary and broad” proposals submitted Wednesday to the Florida Board of Education (BOE) by the Florida Association of District School Superintendents (FADSS) assumes a fall reopening with a range of guidelines.Among proposed protocols for reopened schools are daily temperature checks for students and staff, on-site rapid COVID-19 testing, smaller class sizes and fewer numbers of students assigned to specific buses.FADSS presented two plans to BOE in a phone conference directed by Florida Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran, who offered few comments other than to thank superintendents and board members afterward for their proposals.“All of that stuff is being evaluated,” Corcoran said, “but I appreciate your comments.”Before Wednesday’s meeting, Corcoran issued an order extending the June 30 expiration of teacher certifications through December and suspended teacher evaluations for performance-based salary reviews, leaving that to individual school districts.Florida schools have been closed since mid-March, with students supposed to finish this academic year through online classes. However, not all families have access to the laptops necessary for “distance learning,” and a significant number of students have never signed into online classes.Under FADSS’ COVID-19 Education Recovery Plan, superintendents envision a hybrid learning approach between in-person and online coursework, with an exam conducted over the summer to identify students who may have fallen into the digital divide’s cracks.“Superintendents feel strongly that when we return to the 2020-21 school year, districts will need to quickly identify any student with remaining learning gaps,” Pinellas County Superintendent Michael Grego said on behalf of FDASS.Once students ensnared in the “COVID-19 academic slide” have been identified, Grego said districts can address their needs individually through a summer programming expansion that could include extended day, extended program or extended year in the 2020-21 academic calendar.Under FADSS’ K-12 Return to School Recommended Guidelines, DOE would create a Pandemic Education Response Team of medical professionals “to establish the medical trend guidelines for reopening schools.”The team would establish social distancing protocols for recess, lunch, physical education and group events, personal protective measures and screening requirements “to best mitigate exposure to COVID-19 while planning for a return to school that ensures the safety and well-being of all stakeholders,” the plan said.Superintendents said schools must be provided with digital thermometers, masks, gloves, soap and sanitizer and offer parents expanded digital learning for their children.Board member Michael Olenick called for the creation of a task force comprised of health experts, community members and school officials to examine the “many unknowns” of how COVID-19 affects children.“We have a new normal here, and that new normal will also require this task force to prepare for a very likely event that there is going to be a spike again in the fall,” Olenick said.“I think that there are so many aspects that are bigger than just the state,” he continued. “I think districts need and want your help – our help. And I think it is our responsibility as the State Board of Education who oversees K-12.”“Every decision is a balancing act,” board member Ryan Petty said.

England score nine tries to comfortably beat Fiji at Twickenham

first_imgSunday Nov 20, 2016 England score nine tries to comfortably beat Fiji at Twickenham England scored nine tries to run Fiji off the park and win 58-15 at a packed Twickenham Stadium on Saturday. Fijian born England winger Semesa Rokoduguni started for England for the first time since 2014, and scored a brace, as did Jonathan Joseph and Joe Launchbury.The tries were scored by Joseph, Elliot Daly, Teimana Harrison, Joe Launchbury and Alex Goode. Fiji scored through stars Nemani Nadolo, Leone Nakarawa and Metuisela Talebula.“It was good fish and chips,” coach Eddie Jones told BBC Sport.“It doesn’t mean fish and chips is basic. I thought we played some sparkling rugby, really good stuff. The ball movement, crispness of passing was fantastic. We are a young team, in terms of only being together 11 games. We are not going to get everything absolutely right.“Rokoduguni has definitely got a smile on his face. I’m really pleased for him because he worked hard to get this chance. He got a lot of reward for the hard work he’s done.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error England Rugby Related Articles 42 WEEKS AGO The Dylan Hartley Eddie Jones saga shows… 43 WEEKS AGO IT’S FINALLY TIME: All you need to know ahead… 46 WEEKS AGO Eddie Jones responds and explains thought… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

House W-DR / GRAUX & BAEYENS architecten

first_imgArchDaily Houses Photographs:  Fay Pynaert, Philippe BrysseText description provided by the architects. The rear building of the house, dating from the early 20th century, is no longer adapted to the needs of the client or the demands of today’s living comfort. The new multipurpose room, with a maximum sense of space, the various activities taken in the foreground and absent themselves more to draw. Central to the room, the table is placed as a symbol of everyday life. The three monumental canvases perforate the new room and light each on a different part of the house and its surroundings. The two horizontal frames in the roof allow light to deep into the existing house and both offer a different view on the rear. Through extending the material and color outward, a unit is created. Relations with outside are strengthened. It opted for the cooking area and sink to store in closets. The island thus betrays its function. We try in this way an almost abstract space where the light can write her poetry on the walls. In the main volume only the strictly necessary interventions occurred. The existing bathroom was too small in proportion to the house. It was decided to split this into two quality areas. At the site of the old bathroom was the toilet and shower fitted. The ceiling of the shower was replaced by a glass of 2m ² which a magnificent view is released. The bathroom has been moved to the top floor. The furniture is a concatenation of a sink, a bathtub and a toilet.Save this picture!© Philippe BrysseProject gallerySee allShow lessEuropan 11 Proposal: Havenkwartier / Erwin Schot, Eloi Koster, Bas Meijerman and Elm…ArticlesPhotography: Museum der Kulturen / Herzog & de Meuron by Duccio MalagambaArticles Share House W-DR / GRAUX & BAEYENS architecten CopyHouses•Gent, Belgium House W-DR / GRAUX & BAEYENS architectenSave this projectSaveHouse W-DR / GRAUX & BAEYENS architecten Save this picture!© Fay Pynaert+ 20 Share Architects: GRAUX & BAEYENS architecten Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  2011center_img CopyAbout this officeGRAUX & BAEYENS architectenOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesGentRefurbishmentHousesBelgiumPublished on December 31, 2011Cite: “House W-DR / GRAUX & BAEYENS architecten” 31 Dec 2011.
