A snow-affected fourth quarter of 2010 resulted in a 0.6 per cent contraction in the economy. ECONOMICS: P13 center_img KCS-content whatsapp Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Canon Mark Stevenson will be canon to the presiding bishop for ministry within the Episcopal Church. I worked with him after Hurricane Katrina. He was always ” cool, calm, and collected!” God’s Peace to you Canon Mark!Nancy Jo Poirrier, St. James, Baton Rouge, LA The Rev. E. Mark Stevenson.[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry has appointed the Rev. E. Mark Stevenson as canon to the presiding bishop for ministry within the Episcopal Church, a member of the presiding bishop’s staff.In this role, Stevenson will support the ministry of the presiding bishop among Episcopalians as a pastoral assistant and strategic and theological advisor. Responsibilities include serving as liaison and representative to bishops within the church and overseeing preparations for meetings of the House of Bishops. Additionally, he will provide support for bishops and Episcopal dioceses in carrying out their ministry and mission as well as preparation for visitations by the presiding bishop. Stevenson will also work closely and collaboratively with the executive officer of the General Convention, the president of the House of Deputies, and the other canons and chief officers on the presiding bishop’s staff, in addition to directing the work of the Formation, Youth, and Young Adult Ministries and Transition Ministries departments.“I am truly delighted that the Reverend Canon Mark Stevenson has accepted our call to serve as canon for ministry within the Episcopal Church, said Curry. “Canon Mark has a long and proven track record as a canon to bishops, a skilled manager and administrator, and as a wise and generous colleague to many. Above all he is a devout follower of Jesus of Nazareth.”The presiding bishop notes that Stevenson was selected from an initial field of 35. A screening committee appointed by the presiding bishop reviewed all applications, narrowing the list to four candidates whom they recommended for an interview with Curry.  After concurring with the search committee regarding the four final candidates, the presiding bishop conducted the interviews and later identified Stevenson as his choice for canon for ministry within the Episcopal Church.“It is a true honor to have been called to this ministry by the presiding bishop,” says Stevenson. “I am excited about the future of the Episcopal Church under his leadership and look forward to serving with a great team as the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement continues to teach and preach the transforming power of love of God and love of neighbor.”Meet the Rev. Canon E. Mark StevensonStevenson presently serves as the director of Episcopal Migration Ministries, the refugee resettlement program of the Episcopal Church, a position he has held since May 2016.  As director, he leads a dedicated team who execute a national program of refugee resettlement and related ministries in partnership with the U.S. government, affiliated local resettlement programs, and a developing network of communities and ecumenical organizations from across the country.From 2005 until he joined the presiding bishop’s staff in 2013 as the Episcopal Church domestic poverty missioner, Stevenson served as canon to the ordinary in the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana where his responsibilities included oversight of the bishop’s staff, budget management, coordination of clergy and congregation transitional ministry, and various pastoral and administrative concerns throughout the diocese.   When Hurricane Katrina made landfall just days before Stevenson took his post, the scope of his ministry expanded dramatically to include working closely with then-Bishop Charles Jenkins, as well as local, regional, national and international leaders and groups to put into place the processes for effective relief ministry.   In partnership with Episcopal Relief & Development, the diocese instituted an Office of Disaster Response that evolved over the years into Episcopal Community Services of Louisiana, a ministry focused not only on immediate disaster relief but also on the transformation of lives by building a community of care and respect for all human beings.Before that, Stevenson served as rector of the Church of the Annunciation in New Orleans (Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana) and the Church of the Good Shepherd in Maitland, Florida (Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida).Stevenson serves on the board of The Living Church Foundation and also served as a member of the Episcopal Relief & Development board. In addition, he served as a deputy to the 2012 General Convention and an alternate at the 2009 General Convention.Stevenson will begin work as canon to the presiding bishop within the Episcopal Church on Sept. 1. His office will continue to be in New York at the Episcopal Church Center. People Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CAlast_img read more

The definitely not a drinking game to the SOTU

first_img Previous articleOpinion: the Obamacare individual mandate and its inevitable endNext articleRead Fort Worth aims to raise reading levels Elizabeth Campbell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Linkedin What we’re reading: Chauvin found guilty in Floyd case, Xi to attend Biden’s climate change summit CRES negotiates move to interdisciplinary unit amid student resistance Alumna joins ‘Survivor’ reality show in quest for a million dollars Twitter printThe annual State of the Union is almost upon us. This will be President Donald Trump’s first SOTU and the buzz is growing as many Americans wait to see what the president will lay out as his priorities for the year.Political nerds might even be planning a watch party for this main event. Well, you’re in luck because I’ve put together a fun-inducing SOTU watch party guide! Now my editor told me, in no uncertain terms, that I could not write a drinking game for the SOTU that involved any alcohol whatsoever because many of you are underage. So, break out your milk cartons and juice boxes for this, totally not encouraging drinking alcohol in any way, drinking game for the SOTU!What you’ll need: several tiny glasses of milk, (think about the size you could throw back in one gulp), two juice boxes, and a bottle of water.via GIPHYRule #1: Take a sip of your juice box anytime Trump says one of his achievements is historic, the best ever, unprecedented, etc. He is likely to bring up these type of vibes when talking about his administration’s accomplishments this past year: especially the tax reform legislation that was passed or the state of the economy and jobs in America. Trump will likely want to play to these strengths and highlight a congressional achievement in order to show voters the Republicans can get things done before the upcoming midterm elections.Rule #2: Finish one of those tiny glasses of milk anytime Trump blames Congress, or specifically the Democrats, for not getting something done or getting in the way of Trump’s agenda. Following the debacle with health care and the current debate of immigration raging in the capital, it’s likely that Trump will want to place the blame for the dysfunction on Democrats and the legislature – not on himself. Although it will be interesting to see what motivation Trump offers in terms of an immigration solution for Congress. Trump stayed relatively silent during the last debate and the government shutdown but has since released his proposed immigration plan which received mixed reviews from both sides of the aisle. (You can make it two tiny glasses of milk if he uses one of his nicknames to call out a particular member of Congress, ex. Pocahontas, Dicky Durbin, or Sneaky Dianne Feinstein.)Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting. Deals can’t get made when there is no trust! Durbin blew DACA and is hurting our Military.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 15, 2018Rule # 3: Take a sip of your juice box if at any time while discussing his new infrastructure proposal Trump says the words “bipartisan” or “beautiful.” The president is expected to spend a good amount of time of Tuesday’s speech laying out his plan for a trillion dollar infrastructure package. Fixing the nation’s infrastructure is something Democrats have previously expressed an interest in, hence the prediction Trump will play up the bipartisan angle of the deal in order to make it debating process run smoothly through Congress. The beautiful just seems to be his go to when describing parts of America.Rule # 4: Finish your juice box if Trump brings up the Russia/obstruction of justice investigation in any way. The last time America saw a president in a similar-ish situation was when President Bill Clinton delivered his SOTU during his impeachment trial. While Clinton chose to ignore the situation entirely and not bring it up, the differences here, notably that Trump has repeatedly said he is not under personal investigation and that the whole investigation is a hoax, could prompt the president to speak on the matter.Well, now that collusion with Russia is proving to be a total hoax and the only collusion is with Hillary Clinton and the FBI/Russia, the Fake News Media (Mainstream) and this phony new book are hitting out at every new front imaginable. They should try winning an election. Sad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2018Rule #5: Pop the bottle cap off your water bottle and take a swig of that H2O when Trump says “Make America Great Again” which will likely be at the end of his speech so this serves as the grand finale as you come down from that annual rush of excitement that is the SOTU.Bonus Rule: Finish your juice box if anyone falls asleep during the speech, a la Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, or if anyone launches a protest inside the capitol while the speech is going on. You can also add to this bonus rule by taking a sip of your juice box any time the commentators mention someone who is not in attendance as some sort of protest against the president.So there you have it, you’re definitely not an alcohol-inclusive drinking game for this year’s SOTU.

Major water charges protest planned for Limerick City

first_imgUniversity Hospital Limerick has public image challenge Print NewsBreaking newsMajor water charges protest planned for Limerick CityBy Alan Jacques – November 21, 2014 808 Irish Cement plant in Limerick back on environmental agency’s watch-list Facebook Email RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous articleUL GAA and Bank of Ireland present 36 High Performance ScholarshipsNext articleSporting Limerick Podcast Week ending 23/11/14 Alan Jacques WhatsApp by Alan [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up FOLLOWING angry scenes outside the Absolute Hotel this Monday as anti-water charge protesters attempted to get their views across to Finance Minister Michael Noonan, a third major demonstration is now planned for November 29 in the city centre.Following two previous protests that brought thousands of people to the streets of the city in recent months, the Anti Austerity Alliance’s ‘We Won’t Pay’ campaign will keep the pressure on the Government on Saturday week.The protest, organized under the banner ‘No Means No’, is in response to attempts to cut across the growing revolt by reducing the level of the bills.Protest organisers, however, say that whatever the charge is initially, it will inevitably rise if introduced, and they are calling for its complete abolition.According to City North AAA councillor, Cian Prendiville, one of the organisers of the protest, the march will send a very clear message to the Government. Cllr Prendiville maintains that the Government are “desperately trying to divide the opposition to water charges, in the hope of keeping people off the streets”.“They hope that their concessions will stop the revolt that is developing, and mean that they get the charges in and can increase them later. But every concession they give is just further proof that we can beat them. Next Saturday we need another huge protest in Limerick to send a clear message: No Means No – Abolish the Water charges!” he declared.Fellow Anti Austerity Alliance councillor Paul Keller says the protest was scheduled to coincide with the new Irish Water registration deadline.“This will be a major, family-friendly protest right on the eve of Irish Water’s new deadline, to let them and the Government know that we will not be paying this unjust charge. Mass non-payment has beaten water charges before, and it is clear that we can do it again,” said Cllr Keller.center_img TAGS’We Won’t Pay’Anti Austerity AllianceCllr Cian PrendivilleCllr Paul KellerFinance Minister Michael NoonanlimerickWater Charges Twitter Council collects €53 million in commercial rates Friday the 13th nightmare for opponents of Irish Cement tyre-burning plans Advertisement Councillors ‘should be given P45s’ over Aughinish planning decision Boycott of Israeli goods rejected by Council Linkedinlast_img read more

Highwayman’s bridge is being repaired

first_imgLocal backlash over Aer Lingus threat Previous articleGardaí devising strategy to combat knife crimeNext articleTreaty City Brewery – The Limerick Post Show with Meghann Scully Staff Reporter Cllr Cathal Crow pointing to the memorial plaque on Barrly-Thomous Bridge.A BRIDGE with an historic past on the outskirts of Limerick city is getting a new lease of life.Cllr. Cathal Crowe has welcomed the commencement of essential repairs works on an old stone bridge that straddles a mountain stream on the parish boundary between Cratloe and Meelick.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Last weekend, contractors working for Clare County Council installed scaffolding to facilitate repair works on Barrly-Thomous Bridge.This single-arched stone bridge, constructed in 1837 has been in a perilous state for a number of months. Throughout the month of February, heavily laden trucks carrying cut timber from a nearby forestry plantation loosened some of the bridge’s stonework.Cllr Crowe says that the trucks “exacerbated a problem that is likely to already have started owing to the lack of maintenance the bridge received over its 182 years of existence.”The councillor feared that with the structural integrity of the bridge’s parapet compromised there was a risk of vehicles plunging to the valley floor 30 feet below.“I have a great grá for Barrly-Thomous Bridge. It is only a stone’s throw from my family’s ancestral home at Woodcock Hill and my uncle’s farm bounds on bridge itself,” said Cllr Crowe, who has been highlight the need for works for several years.“I am chairman of the Woodcock Hill Enhancement Committee which, in 2016, installed a plaque on the parapet of Barrly-Thomous Bridge commemorating its illustrious folklore.“In the years before the bridge was built a highwayman, named Morrissey, sat on a flat stone at the fording point of the stream and attacked stagecoaches as they negotiated the water and rocks.“Armed with a blunderbuss, Morrissey often relieved his victims of fortunes – which he supposedly shared with his poor neighbours. He was, in effect, a ‘Robin Hood’ of his day.“On his deathbed, he told family and neighbours that his stash of valuables was buried beneath an oak tree in Cratloe Woods with the ace of spades carved on it. The lure of instant wealth sent many people from near and far on a prospecting frenzy.“To protect the loot from falling into the ‘wrong hands’, Morrissey’s closest friends are said to have carved the ace of spades onto all tree trunks in the woods. This greatly confused the prospectors and ensured, as folklore would have it, that Morrissey’s treasures were never ever found.” NewsLocal NewsPoliticsHighwayman’s bridge is being repairedBy Staff Reporter – May 22, 2019 725 Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick on Covid watch list Linkedin WhatsApp Facebookcenter_img Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Is Aer Lingus taking flight from Shannon?

Natural selection in house mice (Mus musculus) from South Georgia (South Atlantic Ocean)

first_imgMice living in tussock grass on a remote headland of the South Atlantic island of South Georgia (54°S) where the mean temperature is less than 2°C and the monthly average below 0°C for four months each year have been studied. They are big animals (although not as large as those on some North Atlantic islands) and have much brown fat, showing their response to their cold environment. Only two out of 27 gene loci scored electrophoretically were segregating (3·4% heterozygosity); these (Es‐6, Got‐2) are four cross‐over units apart on chromosome 8, and were in strong linkage disequilibrium. There were marked changes in allele frequencies with age which go in opposite directions in males and females, showing the action of stabilizing selection: Es‐6a increased from 16% in males of less than three months, to 35% in older animals; it declined in females from 36 to 19%.last_img read more

Coronavirus: the sales go on!

first_imgUK property auctioneer, Auction House, has pledged that all of its scheduled sales will take place this year – even if a restriction on gatherings during the Coronavirus outbreak means that lots get transferred into an online sale.The announcement coincides with the release of the group’s latest results, which show that 453 lots were sold in February (compared to 457 in February 2019), at an impressive success rate of 80.2%, raising nearly £56m (£55,872,374). Since the beginning of 2020, a total of 506 lots have been sold, at a success rate of 79.2%, raising £61.8m – which is 8.7% up on last year.Roger Lake, Auction House Director, said, “Despite some expectations to the contrary, the auction market stayed strong in February with many sellers selecting the auction method after deciding the time was right for them. Whilst the number of entries is marginally down from last year, demand has been buoyant, with busy salerooms and enthusiastic bidding, and our sale rate is well ahead of the norm.“But like the rest of the world, we’re entering unchartered waters with the Coronavirus pandemic – which is inevitably going to impact on our activities in the event of public gatherings being restricted or even banned altogether. As a result, arrangements are being put in place to sell auction lots through our proven Online Sales system, which we’ve been operating for the past five years.”UK property auctioneer online auctioneers Roger Lake Auction House April 17, 2020Jenny van BredaWhat’s your opinion?
