Youth Minister Lorton, VA Posted Mar 24, 2020 Submit a Job Listing [Anglican Communion] As governments around the world react and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are finding themselves facing unprecedented restrictions on their day-to-day lives.Many of us will have lived with such restrictions on a temporary basis in our particular country or region over recent years in response to instability, wars, and natural disasters. But for many, such restrictions are new. In any event, the global nature of the restrictions put them on an entirely different scale not seen since the Second World War.Many provinces of the Anglican Communion have suspended public worship in response to local official advice. This, along with other restrictions people are being asked to face, may be daunting, confusing and upsetting.The first thing that we want to say is that the suspension of public corporate acts of worship does not mean that we stop worshipping God. We can worship Him and continue to pray both privately and within our families. We have a number of resources to help you pray, including the Anglican Cycle of Prayer, through which we can join together, around the world, to pray for specific dioceses and provinces of our Anglican Communion. You can find these at anglicancommunion.org/prayer.The second thing we want to say is a reminder to us all to continue to place our trust in God. In his letter to the Romans, the Apostle Paul said: “I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”And Paul, with Timothy, in their letter to the Church at Philippi, said: “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”In our prayers, in addition to praying for those who are ill, and for those who are lonely, we should pray for wisdom for those in authority and for strength to be given to medical workers. We should do more than pray. We should also act by heeding the advice of our respective national and regional authorities who are working to contain the virus; and, we should care for those who are unable to care for themselves.We want you to know that we are all praying for you all at this time and we will continue to pray for the whole of God’s Church and God’s World.The Most Revd and Right Honourable Justin WelbyArchbishop of CanterburyPresident of the Anglican Consultative Council, Chair of the Primates’ MeetingThe Most Revd Paul KwongArchbishop of Hong KongChair of the Anglican Consultative CouncilThe Most Revd Josiah-Idowu-FearonSecretary General of the Anglican Communion This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Albany, NY Rector Bath, NC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Tampa, FL Press Release Service Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA COVID-19, COVID-19: A message from global Anglican leadership The Archbishop of Canterbury, Anglican Consultative Council Chair and the Anglican Communion Secretary General write a joint letter to the Anglican Communion Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Submit an Event Listing Rector Belleville, IL Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Tags Submit a Press Release Rector Hopkinsville, KY Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Health & Healthcare The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Director of Music Morristown, NJ Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Featured Jobs & Calls Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Research into supporting social entrepreneurs through failure Tagged with: Research / statistics Trading A previous failure in business can be a very good experience in building a new, more successful business. But how can social entrepreneurs be supported through failure to ensure they go on to build a better business next time round?In collaboration with UnLtd, the charity that supports social entrepreneurs, the Open University is offering a CASE research studentship on this issue. The studentship will focus on the question: how can new social entrepreneurs whose projects are at risk best be supported through the experience of project ‘failure’ in ways that maximise learning?The studentship is offered at £14,900 per annum and starts on 1 October 2008.If you are ready to study for a doctorate, and would like to investigate how best to support budding social entrepreneurs, then contact [email protected] before 14 July 2008.As well as a good honours degree, preferably in a relevant social science, you should have, or expect to have, an MRes, or other recognised postgraduate research qualification (or experience demonstrably equivalent to this). 26 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 18 June 2008 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

to go further News BangladeshAsia – Pacific Bangladeshi writer and blogger dies in detention RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the threats that have been made against two Bengali-language dailies in the past three days. An Islamist group has accused Prothom Alo editor Matiur Rahman of blasphemy, while Dainik Shamokal editor Golam Sarwar has been threatened with death if he continues to cover an opposition party leader’s recent disappearance.“We urge the government and judicial authorities to guarantee the safety and independence of media and journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “An investigation must be carried out to identify the person responsible for the death threat to Sarwar, and the justice system must not tolerate the use of blasphemy accusations for political purposes.“The blasphemy law currently in effect is blocking the full development of freedom of information and expression. As long as press offences are criminalized, journalists and news media will continue to be vulnerable to the judicial actions that are brought against them and will be forced, sometimes under threat, to censor themselves.”Fazlul Huq Amini, the head of the Islami Ain Bastobayon Committee (Islamic Constitution Application Committee), yesterday accused Prothom Alo of promoting anti-Islamic views and of “conspiring against Muslims.”Threatening legal action against the newspaper, the group said it should be closed and banned, and accused its editor, Rahman, of involvement in a plot against Islam and national sovereignty. Prothom Alo is often accused of blasphemy and many legal actions gave been brought against its editor in the past.The death threat against Sarwar was made in an anonymous phone call to Dainik Shamokal’s headquarters on 23 April. The caller objected to its coverage of the disappearance of Bangladesh Nationalist Party leader Ilias Ali, who is believed to have been kidnapped on 17 April. He also told the newspaper to stop covering the negotiations taking place between the government and opposition with the aim of finding Ali.Fearing for his life, Sarwar filed a complaint with the police. The newspaper also reported the threats that Sarwar and his staff have received to the interior minister, the police inspector general, the head of the Dhaka metropolitan police and other police officials.

Kuzma/iStock(NEW YORK) — The notorious MS-13 street gang in Suffolk County, New York, has been declared “inoperable,” law enforcement officials announced on Friday.Authorities said during a press conference that 96 MS-13 gang members and associates were indicted on 77 counts including second-degree conspiracy to commit murder, gun possession and criminal possession of a controlled substance.The massive takedown is what investigators described as the largest of the violent street gangs in New York State history. Suffolk County District Attorney Timothy Sini said that over 200 arrest were made across the country and in El Salvador as a result of this 23-month investigation.The multi-agency operation has thwarted seven alleged murder plots and led to the arrest of nine leaders that operated cliques throughout the county, said Sini.Originally founded in Southern California by gang members from El Salvador, MS-13, known in Spanish as La Mara Salvatrucha, has been accused in recent years of brutal murders and assaults on eastern Long Island.The “operation has delivered a major blow to MS-13 operations and recruitment in the region,” Sini said.The 96 defendants include 66 MS-13 gang members and 19 drug suppliers, ages 16 to 69, officials said.The district attorney noted the investigation included the “largest wiretap operation in the United States.”“This ruthless and savage gang extorted innocent members of our community,” sold drugs and sent portions of that money back to the leadership in El Salvador, Sini said.During the arrest of the alleged conspirators, 10 kilograms of cocaine, press pills of fentanyl, drug ledgers, handguns, numerous machetes and “well over $200,000 in cash were recovered, Sini added.“This depicts how brutal and savage this gang is,” he said, while holding a machete that was recovered, adding, “To the MS-13, we are coming for you.”MS-13 tried to establish an East Coast base and has wreaked havoc throughout the county. Their violence in Long Island included the 2016 murders of 16-year-old Kayla Cuevas and 15-year-old Nisa Mickens, which drew the attention of President Donald Trump.“They kidnap, they extort, they rape and they rob. They prey on children, they shouldn’t be here,” Trump said when he visited Suffolk County in July 2017. “It’s time for every member of MS-13 to be in fear. Look over their shoulder. Look in their rear view mirror, because ICE and its partners are coming hard, and we’re coming strong.”Brothers Alexi and Jairo Saenz were charged in connection with six murders, including of Cuevas and Micken. They have pleaded not guilty and the case is still pending. If convicted, they both face up to life in prison or the death penalty — which was reinstated in July 2019 by U.S. Attorney William Barr after a 15-year moratorium on executions.In November, the brothers also pleaded not guilty to a seventh murder they are accused of participating in.

We describe the levels of natural arm damage in the Antarctic brittle star Ophionotus victoriae and the rate of arm regeneration over the period of 1 yr, as measured in our aquarium facilities at Rothera Point, West Antarctic Peninsula. The natural incidence of arm damage in O. victoriae is high (97% of individuals examined). The rate of regeneration was 0.44 mm wk–1, which is slow, but within the range of data from temperate brittle stars and also in line with data from the literature showing a general trend of decreasing arm regeneration rate with temperature. The Q10 for arm regeneration rate of 2.6 across brittle stars is within the expected biological range. However, O. victoriae arm regeneration experiences a lag phase of up to 5 mo before reproducible amounts of new tissue are produced. Such a long lag phase has not been documented for any other brittle star species and produces a range of Q10 values from 3.6 (when compared to the slowest documented lag phase for a temperate brittle star) to exceptionally high Q10 values of 14.9 and 15.4 (when either fastest or average regeneration times are considered for temperate brittle stars and this Antarctic species). This indicates that the initial process of arm regeneration in O. victoriae is either different to that of other brittle stars or it is dependent on factors other than the effects of temperature on enzyme-mediated biochemical reactions, such as gonadal cycles and seasonality.
Gatehouse Bank has widened the eligibility criteria on its range of Buy-to-Let products, including an increase to the maximum age at the end of the term, from 85 to 99 years.The 99-year age limit will not apply to customers who rely on non-rental income to meet affordability criteria. Where there is a reliance on personal income, the maximum age remains 85.However, the change to the upper age limit is designed to remove financing challenges for older clients, who would otherwise have no problem passing affordability tests.Gatehouse will also now allow refinancing within six months of purchase for all Buy-to-Let customers, subject to an enhanced due diligence process.Criteria changes to Buy-to-Let productsMaximum Finance-to-Value for Expats and International Residents has increased to 80% from 75%Minimum finance amount reduced to £60,000 for Expats and International ResidentsMinimum property value lowered from £100,000 to £75,000 for Expats and International ResidentsMaximum age increased to 99-years at the end of the finance term for UK Residents, Expats and International Buy-to-Let customersThe Bank will now require three months of bank statements from Expats, rather than 12 months, while International Residents will only need to provide six months’ worth of statements, rather than 12 months – conditions apply.The maximum age increase and reduction of statements also apply to Houses in Multiple Occupations (HMOs) and Multi Unit Freehold Blocks (MUFBs).The Bank has also made changes to its Home Purchase Plan criteria; refinancing is now allowed within six months of purchase, subject to further due diligence. Home Purchase Plans are Shariah-compliant alternatives to conventional mortgages thatcarry no early payment charges.Charles Haresnape, CEO of Gatehouse Bank, said, “We are always looking at ways to improve our Buy-to-Let and Home Purchase Plan ranges to ensure we make the application process as easy as possible for our brokers and customers.“We are able to make the latest changes to our criteria because of our human approach to underwriting, which means we take our customers’ full financial circumstances into account.”Gatehouse Bank 99 year old mortgage terms buy to let finance buy to let lending buy-to-let March 13, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?

The motion resolved to “support Abolish Eton’s fundamental aim of ending the private education sector and bringing private schools under public administration.” Recognising this, the club resolved to mandate the co-chairs to petition Angela Rayner MP, the Shadow Education Secretary, to support the policy’s inclusion in Labour’s official election platform. A friendly amendment was also added to call on club members to individually submit the proposal to the Labour party’s manifesto crowdsourcing website. Speaking from the floor, one member quoted OULC’s founding chair on the reason for establishing the club: “That those who have more to lose than their chains may stand in solidarity with those who do not.” This comes a month after the group successfully persuaded delegates at the Labour Party conference to vote in favour of adopting the abolition of private schools as official party policy. Shadow cabinet ministers later hinted that the policy would not be included in the party’s 2019 election manifesto, which has yet to be released. Asked whether the club would be supporting the Abolish Eton campaign’s call for a 7% cap on private school students at top universities, Staker said the motion deliberately avoided specifics and instead expressed support for the campaign’s fundamental aims. At their General Meeting this evening, Oxford University Labour Club voted in favour of a motion to support the Abolish Eton campaign, also known as the Labour Campaign Against Private Schools. The motion, proposed by co-chairs Meg Howells and Jay Staker, states that “we, as an Oxbridge Labour Club have a special responsibility to speak out against institutionalised privilege in education.” However, Holly Rigby, coordinator of the Abolish Eton campaign, recently told the Guardian: “There is no justification for the fact that young people’s opportunity to flourish and fulfil their potential is still determined by the size of their parents’ bank balance.” Some have suggested that the Labour Party are unlikely to wholeheartedly adopt the policy in their manifesto, despite the support of conference delegates. The New Statesman‘s Patrick Maguire reported during Labour conference: “The policy prescription drafted by campaigners is, it is unlikely to be adopted in full. This is partly because of its radicalism. The suggestion that a Labour government would expropriate the assets of private schools alarms some of those who will ultimately be responsible for translating last night’s vote into a workable programme of policy.” Responding a concern from the floor that the motion could impact the club’s inclusiveness, Howells said: “It’s nothing personal. We’re not going after individuals. Our issue is with the system and the positions of privilege it creates, not the people who were put in those positions through no fault of their own.”
