Mike Kreutzer works with children at Kemp Elementary School in Dayton as part of a school-church partnership.[Diocese of Southern Ohio] It is a few minutes after 9 a.m. on a Thursday. The children at Kemp Elementary School in Dayton, Ohio, have just finished their breakfast and are on the way to their classrooms.  School staff members are in the hallways making sure that those who get sidetracked, either talking with friends or just playing around, remember where they are supposed to be. Latecomers are lining up in the office, signing in and getting passes from the secretary.I am signing in at the office as well. This is my 10th year of tutoring children as part of the Kemp School Community Partnership, which brings together members of five neighborhood churches, along with several additional volunteers, to serve the needs of our children. It is our year-after-year service together that has made our partnership an important part of the school’s program. At the same time, it has enabled us to build relationships among our churches, connections that make us more effective in serving those around us in the name of Christ.Over the years, I have worked with students of all ages, up through the eighth grade. This year, I am assisting an intervention specialist in helping our youngest group: those in kindergarten through second grade who need special assistance. Halfway through the school year, some can now read basic “sight words,” while others still have trouble distinguishing between different letters of the alphabet. Each one, it seems, faces different challenges to his or her learning.As I make my way down the hallway, I meet teachers, staff members and students whom I have come to know.Over the course of the morning, I will see Janet, from my church, St. Mark’s; Hank and Irene, members of Corinth Presbyterian Church; Maryellen, from St. Helen’s Catholic Church; Deb, from Community United Methodist Church; and Steve, pastor of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church. They are just some of the team of volunteers who come to Kemp each week to work directly with the students. Over the years, we have formed connections with each other, connections that bind us together in service to the children of our community, connections that open doors for other forms of cooperative ministry as well.The tutors form the core of our ministry at Kemp, but many more people are connected to our work as well.  Members of all our partner churches come together each August, for example, to host a free cookout at the school on the Friday before classes begin. It brings together faculty, staff, students and teachers and forms the basis for better communications among all of them during the year. Most of our cookout volunteers have been with us for several years and greet each other as old friends. Connections.Other members of our churches who do not work in the school itself are connected to our ministry as well.  Many provide school supplies for students who cannot afford to buy them. Some have purchased hats, gloves and coats for children who do not have them. Many have helped as well with contributions to Episcopal Community Services Foundation, which has provided us with a series of grants, enabling the school to buy and give appropriate books to students, some of whom have never had a book of their own. They, too, are connected to our ministry.Over the course of any year, special needs arise, and our connections with one another help us to address them.  Recently, for example, the school’s principal, Renaldo O’Neal, stopped me in the hallway to ask if we could help with a special request. The school keeps a washer and dryer in the elementary area, both to launder school uniforms donated for students in need and to take care of accidents that our younger children have from time to time. The dryer had broken and could not be repaired, and there was no money in the school’s or district’s budget to replace it. I told him that I would see what I could do.When I returned to my office, I sent an e-mail to our main contact at each of our member churches, describing the need and asking who could help. Neither the Lutherans nor the Methodists had a dryer available. The Presbyterians did, but it used natural gas, and the school has only an electrical hookup. The pastoral associate at the Catholic church replied that they had an electric dryer to donate but had no way to get it there. I called a parishioner who has a truck, and we picked it up at an old convent and delivered it to the school. Problem solved. Need addressed. Children served.Our connections in ministry are not limited to just one school and to our shared ministry there. While ours is the only cooperative School-Church Partnership (SCP) of its kind in our area, there are nearly 100 other local churches that are involved, in one way or another, with many other local schools. We are all connected with one another by a regional SCP Board, based at Dayton’s Westminster Presbyterian Church. I and the other six members of the board meet quarterly to find ways of encouraging the formation of other partnerships and of supporting those involved in this ministry.Our connections with others continue to grow. We have managed to get the good news of our ministries out to many others via our church websites and by personal connections with others far from the Greater Dayton area.  Currently, schools and churches in California, Illinois, Massachusetts and Minnesota are connected with our local School-Church Partnership community.  We also have been contacted by others in Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, Tennessee and Texas, and in the Canadian province of Alberta, asking about our local work and hoping to use our experiences to form or enhance programs of their own.All too often, when we develop ministries to address the needs of God’s people, we tend to isolate ourselves, at least psychologically, from other churches, Episcopal as well as those of other traditions.  And we limit our scope to include only those whom our parish decides to serve. That seems like a curious approach to take in a church tradition that celebrates our place within a worldwide communion of churches, united with one another in one Lord, one faith, one baptism.For many years, those dedicated to the environmental movement have encouraged people to “Think globally and act locally.” That is not a bad model for us to use in other forms of service as well: working in our local communities but forming connections with others who are engaged in, or want to become engaged in, similar ministries. Together, we can make important contributions, not only in our own neighborhoods but also in places far beyond the reach of our individual churches.If we are willing to reach out to others in creative partnerships, to make connections with others who are committed to serving the same needs, we might just find that our work together is much more effective than the work we could have done as one parish alone. Our network of connections might just continue to grow, enabling fellow believers, both within our local communities and far away, to form connections of their own.  All those various collaborative approaches to ministry can enable the wider church to be more faithful in serving God’s people in the name of the one who came to serve us all.— The Rev.

Photo: Paul Lebens-Englund[Episcopal News Service] The presiding bishop and other Episcopal leaders called for prayer, justice and healing on April 20 as a jury in Minneapolis, Minnesota, found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the killing of George Floyd. Chauvin’s bail was revoked while he awaits sentencing.Much of the trial had centered on the eyewitness video that showed Chauvin, who is white, pressing his knee for more than nine minutes into the neck of Floyd, who was Black. Floyd’s death and the video of the killing sparked widespread national protests against police brutality and racial injustice.Episcopalians and church leaders have joined in the calls over the past year for a reckoning with the racism embedded in American institutions after the killing of Floyd, 46, and other victims of violence by police and white vigilantes. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, in a video message released before the Chauvin verdict, said the struggle for justice will continue.“There is no celebration. Nothing will bring George Floyd back to his family or his community,” Curry said. “Please pray for the soul of George Floyd, for his family, and for everyone everywhere who has suffered because of the sin of racism and oppression.”Minnesota Bishop Craig Loya issued a statement after the verdict, saying it “will undoubtedly bring a sense of justice, and even relief, to many many people in Minnesota and around the nation.”“Regardless of the verdict, Mr. Floyd’s murder is a symptom of a deep sickness that infects every one of us, and every institution that makes up the fabric of our common life,” Loya continued. “One verdict, however momentous, will not heal this sickness that lies deep inside us. If we are to be faithful to the call of the Gospel, joining the Spirit’s work of healing and liberation must now form a core part of how we spend the rest of our lives.”He and other Minnesota Episcopal leaders and Episcopalians planned to attend an ecumenical and interfaith prayer vigil scheduled for 5:45 p.m. CDT at the intersection in Minneapolis where Floyd was killed.The jury found Chauvin, 45, guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, and he faces a prison sentence of up to 40 years on the second-degree murder conviction. Chauvin was one of four officers involved in the attempt to detain Floyd on May 25 after police received a report of a counterfeit $20 bill at a Minneapolis convenience store. In the video of his final minutes alive, Floyd can be heard pleading with the officers, “I can’t breathe.”Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has been found guilty of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd https://t.co/XHLNgDsIHZ pic.twitter.com/hyzJRDDtPk— CNN (@CNN) April 20, 2021The other officers, Tou Thao, Thomas Lane and J. Alexander Kueng, await a separate trial later this year on charges they aided and abetted the killing of Floyd. All four officers were fired after the incident.Chauvin’s trial lasted for three weeks, with attorneys delivering their closing arguments on April 19. That day, President Joe Biden called Floyd’s family to offer his support. He later said in remarks to reporters that he thought there was “overwhelming” evidence to support a guilty verdict against Chauvin.The jury – six white jurors, four Black jurors and two who identify as mixed-race – then spent four hours deliberating before breaking for the night. They returned to deliberations in the morning, and news broke midafternoon April 20 that the verdicts were forthcoming. The judge read the verdicts of guilty just after 4 p.m. local time.Biden praised the verdicts in a national address with Vice President Kamala Harris from the White House. “This can be a giant step forward in the march toward justice in America,” he said, while acknowledging that such verdicts against police are rare.Episcopal leaders from across the church issued statements in the hours before and after the reading of the verdicts.“If this is a victory, it is a victory for the role of law in affirming human dignity,” Atlanta Bishop Rob Wright said in response to the trial’s outcome. “It is a victory for the countless law enforcement officers who embrace accountability and who practice appropriate use of force as they protect and serve without prejudice. Still, justice requires more than sending one man to prison. Justice requires us to acknowledge and change the fact that Black, brown, and poor Americans are often treated differently than other Americans, particularly in encounters with law enforcement and the criminal justice system.”Indianapolis Bishop Jennifer Baskerville-Burrows said in her message after the verdicts that the trial had been “a very personal issue for me, and for many other Black people.”“I am relieved that Derek Chauvin has been held accountable for the murder of George Floyd. But accountability is not the same thing as justice,” she said. “I am aware of my deep longing for true justice, the kind that becomes possible when people like us promise to stand with the vulnerable and marginalized to transform systems of injustice.”May George Floyd’s family know the peace of God which is justice. Rest in Power George Floyd.— Kelly Brown Douglas (@DeanKBD) April 20, 2021In the Diocese of New York, Bishop Andrew Dietsche, Bishop Suffragan Allen Shin and Bishop Assistant Mary Glasspool offered hope that the judicial system would “meet the need which all people have for justice.”“But it is our prayer that, whatever verdict comes, we may as a people remain steadfast in our commitment to work for racial justice. Let us pray for the safety of all people in the hours and days to come,” the bishops said in a written statement before the verdicts.After the verdicts, Washington Bishop Mariann Budde issued a joint statement with other Episcopal leaders in the nation’s capital.“While the trauma of George Floyd’s murder remains, today we give thanks that justice has been done,” they said. “We pray for God’s mercy to surround George Floyd’s family and friends as they hold their private grief in the spotlight of an international movement demanding acknowledgement that Black lives matter as much as other lives.”Curry is expected to participate in the Episcopal Church in Minnesota’s Compline service to be livestreamed on Facebook starting at 8 p.m. CDT.“Our pain persists and our grief goes on,” Curry said in his video statement before the verdict. “May we not be paralyzed by our pain, our fear, and our anger. May we learn, as the Bible teaches, to ‘love not in word and speech but in truth and in action,’ truth and action that leads to justice and healing.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

COVID-19 vaccine could be ready for Florida’s priority recipients in December

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. The FDOH’s draft distribution plan, assembled by a 43-member vaccination planning workgroup spearheaded by Florida Surgeon General Dr. Scott Rivkees and Deputy Secretary for Health Dr. Shamarial Roberson, incorporates lessons learned during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic and in contending with last year’s surge in Hepatitis A.The draft plan was submitted to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Oct. 16, when there were no vaccines on the cusp of approval.Pharmaceutical manufacturer Pfizer announced Monday it was seeking expedited approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a vaccine after preliminary results showed it was more than 90% effective.If Pfizer receives FDA authorization for its vaccine by month’s end, it says 15 million doses of the vaccine could be available in December.“Prioritization of vaccine recipients is not yet determined by the CDC,’’ Florida’s draft plan read, adding Florida identified first recipients by focusing “on critical populations identified in draft guidance documents as well as locations that can accommodate the time and dosing requirements.”The draft plan anticipated logistical hurdles in distributing the vaccine and outlined messaging strategies to contend with misinformation and skepticism.Under the draft plan, the first vaccines would be issued to “healthcare personnel likely to be exposed to or treat people with COVID-19; those at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, including those with underlying medical conditions; and other essential workers,” the FDOH said, estimating 497,000 licensed health care professionals could be among first recipients.According to the draft plan, the FDOH would coordinate with doctors, the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), the State Emergency Response Team, the Florida Department of Elder Affairs and other agencies to identify “at-risk populations who would be a priority for vaccination during phase one.”The FDOH’s proposed phase two allocation would issue vaccines to 223,000 staff and 145,000 residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities across the state.This second phase also would seek to identify those with vulnerable medical conditions and disabilities – potentially as many as 2.7 million Floridians.The final distribution would be for the general public. The FDOH plans to create mass-vaccination clinics run by county health departments “to supplement vaccination efforts and to increase capacity in community-based settings.”Community health clinics would be utilized, as would hospitals. The FDOH is asking 44 hospitals in the state not enrolled in its Florida SHOTS vaccine network to do so to now to streamline efficiency. Currently, 274 state hospitals are enrolled.Some county health departments also have identified sites such as stadiums and fairgrounds used a mass testing sites to serve as inoculation clinics. Orange County is considering making the Orange County Convention Center available for vaccinations.Afterwards, the vaccine would be offered through pharmacies and health care sites. The federal government has contracted with Walgreens and CVS to provide vaccine clinics at nursing homes and assisted living facilities. In Florida, a retail pharmacist could vaccinate people in the store.The lowest priority in FDOH’s draft plan is young children, who will get the vaccine as part of routine vaccination schedules.Hospitals are eyed as vaccination sites because most have the cold storage capacity the vaccine will require.Florida Hospital Association spokesperson Monica Corbett, a member of the working group, told Florida News Service safe storage of the vaccine is a priority.

Huge impact in ‘Lingerie Bowl’ Gridiron game

first_imgTuesday Jul 8, 2014 Huge impact in ‘Lingerie Bowl’ Gridiron game It’s not rugby, but this clip from women’s gridiron features an impressive run that the likes of Ma’a Nonu would be proud of. The behaviour afterwards is questionable, but in terms of a spectacle, the Legends Football League seems to deliver.It’s hard to imagine that a scantily-clad-female rugby form of this would ever be acceptable, seeing as it’s 2014 and all, but the Legends Football League is a hit in the USA. It used to be called the Lingerie Football League, for obvious reasons, before the name change.In fact there is something similar that takes place in Europe each year, so we’ll do our best to report on that soon (someone’s got to do it).From the same country that brought us Hooters, the LFL is 7 on 7 women’s American Gridiron, where the players wear as little as possible. Until recently, they only wore garters, bras and panties.It’s been touted as the fastest growing sports league in the USA, and has record TV ratings.In this clip Markie ‘Lil Train’ Henderson of the Las Vegas Sin (really) bulldozes Chicago Bliss’ Dominique Collins, scores the touchdown then lets everyone know about it.The coaches take it quite seriously too apparently, as can be seen in this clip.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Hurricanes and British & Irish Lions play out thrilling draw in Wellington

first_imgTuesday Jun 27, 2017 Hurricanes and British & Irish Lions play out thrilling draw in Wellington The Hurricanes fought back twice to draw 31-31 with the British and Irish Lions in a thrilling game of tour rugby earlier today. The Lions had led 23-7 at halftime before the hosts came back into the contest, thanks in part to a yellow card to impressive second rower Ian Henderson.The Irishman was yellow carded for a dangerous lifting challenge with fifteen minutes left in the game, and the scoreline set at 31-17 to the Lions.“It was a penalty to us, which ends up being a penalty reversed and a yellow card; that’s the game really. Okay, we’ve ended up drawing, but it’s disappointing because we were in such control of it,” Lions coach Warren Gatland said post match.“We went from the period of having 68 per cent territory and possession to about 25 per cent, so it was a massive swing in the game and disappointing we ended up with the yellow card. “Particularly with the [fact] he referee had looked at it, he thought it was a penalty and he was asked to look at some different angles [on the big screen] and eventually made the decision to give it as a yellow card.”It ultimately proved costly, as the hosts stormed back into contention and then had a player penalised themselves close to the tryline, giving the Lions another crack at it.Dan Biggar showed courage after being peppered with bruising runs by powerful centre Ngani Laumape all night, and after a brilliant rip and steal at the death, he had a shot at the dropgoal for the win on fulltime.The Lions forwards showed their power up front, but flanker James Haskell said afterwards that they were disappointed at letting a team of that quality back in the match.“We should have won today. For a lot of us it’s the last time we’ll pull on that red shirt, for myself personally.. All the boys left nothing out there and that’s all you can ask,” he said.Highlights below and you can watch the Lions press conference with Gatland below thatWarren Gatland post match reviewcredit: allblacks/setiafoaADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error British & Irish Lions 2017 Related Articles 195 WEEKS AGO The 2017 Lions tour documentary looks epic… 203 WEEKS AGO The Impact of British and Irish Lions Tours… 204 WEEKS AGO Jordie Barrett’s casual booming dropgoal… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

In an urban context in which rows of terraced houses or blocks with minimal yards predominate, the uniqueness of this project lies in how to interpret the building regulations, in order to achieve an optimal typology, without losing sight of the maximum optimization of conditions of the plot. Save this picture!© Javier CallejasThe final design makes obvious immediate responses that characterize the urban landscape of the area, which is undifferentiated and monotonous, preferring to concentrate the volume in two linear housing blocks facing each other, releasing a common space between them, which is channeled into the third office building that serves as backdrop to the play area. This produces urban permeability, by fragmenting the block and allowing crosed views between different blocks, and from the city towards them.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasBased on the above considerations, the project is structured around three formal gestures:The ground level of the common garage in the basement determines the ground floor slabs. The same level is kept on the first floor, organizing a two-storey basement enhancing the horizontality of the overall composition.Save this picture!© Javier CallejasThe other significant gesture that characterizes the project is the symmetry of volumes on the attic and garret levels. The final design is the result of pushing the building regulations in order to achieve the planned buildable area for the site, designing the attic floor with a setback of three meters into the site, to compensate for the setback to the facade. Save this picture!© Javier CallejasThe third compositional argument is the color treatment of the different volumes, using exposed brick, waterproofed in different colors for each floor, in housing and offices. In both cases the volumes are contained by the exposed structural grid, which plays the role of a mesh, enhanced with a significant color value.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Architecture of Alfred HitchcockArticlesBuenos Aires Contemporary Art Museum / MonoblockSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Churriana de la Vega, Granada, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Multifunctional complex as mountain village Buitenplein department store & Up Mountain residential building Amstelveen The Up Mountain residential building, which rises upwards in a stepped form, is reminiscent of ice floes stacked on top of each other, or a mountain village built against a slope. Up Mountain is an appropriate name for this eye-catching structure that’s invigorating the city centre of Amstelveen.Save this picture!© Kees HummelThe apartment building, which has an exceptionally light and flexible structure and large, retreating terraces, is the culmination of a new-build/transformation project carried out in three parts. The former department store on Buitenplein was already renovated in 2016, retaining the structure of the retail building and stripping the façades. In 2018, the adjoining car park was demolished and replaced by a new one with higher ceilings. The construction of the residential building on the car park signalled the completion of the transformation of this place in the city.Save this picture!© Kees HummelLightweight building Client AM started developing and designing the residential building in 2017 when the renovated department store was almost operational and the new car park under construction. But the original plan of 5,000 m² didn’t turn out to be economically viable. It required more surface area, which would increase the volume of the building. However, the car park below the building wasn’t designed to cope with this extra weight, based on a traditional building method. Together with the client, Rijnboutt looked for ways of extending the car park within the possibilities. With structural engineers IMd a ‘lightweight’ building was designed in a way that is exceptional in contemporary housing construction.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionAs a central part of the design of Up Mountain on top of the car park, a steel main load-bearing structure was conceived around a concrete core. Also other lightweight products have been chosen for the building elements. For the houses a lightweight composite was chosen that has an appealing, high-quality finish that can hardly be distinguished from architectural concrete. Flexible building layout A maximum living quality has been sought in several ways. In the spatial structure, 45 flats have been inserted like boxes in a structure, varying in size from about 80 m² to almost 400 m². The residents were free to partition their homes according to their individual needs and to merge or split units. This responds to current and future needs for flexibility.Save this picture!© Kees HummelThese adaptations have no effect on the shell, which is therefore destined to last a long time. The architects created a volume that rises in staggered formation, with a series of terraces facing the south that offer panoramic views over Amstelveen and the city park. In addition, the residential building has an atrium that opens onto all the flats and hurdles upward in harmony with the building’s projections, tapering towards the top with a glass roof. The atrium offers space for meeting and encourages social interaction.Save this picture!© Kees HummelCoherent in character The challenge was to create strong architectural coherence despite the fact that the building’s three parts – residential, department store and car park – have different functions and characters. That’s why the architecture is based on a common guiding theme: ‘warp and weft’, which refers to the weaving of longitudinal and transverse threads on a loom. With this, spatially interesting facades have been composed for the three building volumes, each with its own characteristics and material.Save this picture!© Kees HummelThree-dimensional perforated aluminum panels on a steel construction give the façades an attractive appearance. Adding liveability to the city Besides the engineering challenge, both social cohesion and liveability play a role in this project. The formerly monofunctional area between Buitenplein and Handelsplein was relatively quiet at night. The addition of the Up Mountain multifunctional complex with dwellings is attracting residents so now there’s activity during the day and in the evenings.Save this picture!© Kees HummelProject gallerySee allShow lessBloembollenhof Housing Complex / Studio Woodroffe PapaSelected ProjectsHouse in Santarém / dp ArquitectosSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Amstelveen, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.

The guide tells charities how to claim tax back on eligible donations, use the right software, complete the schedule, and fill in the form.Earlier this year HMRC commissioned research on Gift Aid which estimated that donations are worth £8.9bn. The research also found that charities were losing out on £600 million of gift aid donations not claimed while £179 million is being claimed erroneously by people who don’t understand the requirements of Gift Aid.center_img Tagged with: Gift Aid HMRC  190 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 Howard Lake | 19 November 2018 | Newslast_img read more

Those eligible could get between £100 and £300 sterling tax-free to help pay their heating bills.“Each year I meet pensioners who live in Limerick are not be aware that they may be eligible for this payment.  Following a European Court ruling in 2012, the British Winter Fuel Payment cannot be restricted to those ordinarily resident in Britain or the North but must be extended to eligible persons who can prove that they have a ‘genuine and sufficient’ link to Britain,” said Deputy Quinlivan.He went on to say that while it would appear that the ‘genuine and sufficient’ link is determined on a case-by-case basis, the factors taken into account include the length of time a person worked or resided in the Britain, if the person is in receipt of a Social Security payment from Britain and if a person has immediate family ties with Britain.“Many Limerick people who have worked or lived for many years in Britain and have now returned home could potentially satisfy these criteria. Those in receipt of a pension from Britain should qualify.Anyone who needs assistance can contact my constituency office in Denmark Street 061 319 681. The closing date for receipt of applications is March 31, 2017.by Alan [email protected]ost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more
