Photo: Graham Lacdao/St. Paul’s Cathedral[Episcopal News Service – London, U.K.] Punctuated by laughter and rousing applause, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry addressed a capacity crowd of 2,200 people at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, on Oct. 3, bringing a message of how love is the only thing that has the power to change the world.Hosted by Paula Gooder, chancellor of St. Paul’s, Curry spoke for 90 minutes as part of the cathedral’s adult learning series about the importance of the Jesus Movement and God’s dream for the world and humankind.Earlier, the presiding bishop joined a conversation with the Ven. Liz Adekunle, archdeacon of Hackney and chaplain to Queen Elizabeth II, about issues of racial justice in the U.K. and the U.S.The event launched an initiative by St. Paul’s Institute – a forum for reflection, debate and education – that will investigate themes of justice, power and race in 21st-century Britain, listening to the experiences of those directly affected by asymmetrical race dynamics. The project will convene a 24-month task force that will produce a report proposing concrete policy recommendations for improving the access of black Britons into positions of leadership and power in all sectors of U.K. society.On Oct. 2, Curry addressed an audience at Canterbury Cathedral about the power of music and how the songs his grandmother sang sowed a seed that influenced his faith journey and paved his pathway toward ordination.

PivotDoorsEGGERWood Laminate Doors in Molecular Plant Science InstituteBud Clark Commons sets a new standard for public services by combining supportive housing with a community resource center. Located at the gateway to downtown Portland, near historic Union Station and bordering the Pearl District, an upper income mixed-use neighborhood, Bud Clark Commons achieves a noticeable balance between the rigorous programmatic requirements of a coalition lead by the City of Portland, a progressive design approach, and sustainable building practices. Save this picture!© Sally SchoolmasterThe mission of Bud Clark Commons is to provide a continuum of services such as health, housing, and learning resources, to assist homeless individuals transition from an unstable condition to a more permanent living arrangement. The architecture helps achieve this goal in both form and function. The three distinct program elements are a walk-in day center with access to services; a temporary shelter with 90 beds for homeless men; and130 efficient, studio apartments on the five upper floors of the eight-story building. The apartments are designated for very low-income women or men seeking permanent housing. Save this picture!© Sally SchoolmasterGround level floor-to-ceiling windows extend the length of the west façade; the abundance of glazing allows natural light to saturate the interior. The upper façade is light and dark brick punctuated by patterned window openings accented with shades of green glass. The patterning distinguishes individual units on the upper floors, but also makes a bold aesthetic statement on Broadway, a gateway to downtown Portland. The apartments are entered on the south side of the building, where access is restricted to tenants or their guests. A door located on the west side of the building provides entry to the temporary shelter, while public access to the day center is on the north side of the building, on grade at the second floor level. A landscaped courtyard with seating, tables, and a bioswale water feature provide a transitional space between the street and the safety of the day center. Save this picture!© Sally SchoolmasterThe first floor common area shared by men at the transitional shelter is bound by two bunkrooms with bathrooms and showers, a kitchen, exercise and counseling rooms, and a private outdoor courtyard. Day center users enter the building through the public courtyard where there are lockers, bike racks and dog kennels. At the front desk, users are directed to a number of resources: a hygiene center with showers and laundry, counseling, a mail and computer center, library, medical center, and barbershop. The common area with ample seating and tables for dining is open, airy and receives natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows. The third floor,features an art studio, gardenbalcony, and a community courtroom that doubles as a classroom. Save this picture!© Sally SchoolmasterThe upper floors are home to 130 tenants who must apply to receive permanent, supportive housing. The apartments are efficient, comfortable, and easy to maintain. Smart design perks include bedbug proof furniture, and a closet that doubles as a bike rack. A comfortable year-round temperature is maintained through a highly efficient sensor that shuts off the heater when the window is open. Fresh air is circulated into each apartment through a heat recovery system. Save this picture!© Sally SchoolmasterAccessibility, natural light, plentiful clean air, and durable materials were essential to the success of the building from both a sustainable and a functional perspective. A solar-powered hot water system, in addition to a high-performance exterior envelope, energy-efficient lighting, and green roofs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while saving the public in energy costs. Low-flow plumbing fixtures, bioswales, and greywater recycling reduce water use, and all materials are locally sourced, and sustainably harvested or produced. The building has a LEED Platinum certification by the United States Green Building Council, with savings from the use of energy-efficient technologies estimated at $60,000 per year.Project gallerySee allShow lessThe Core Project: A Study to Vitalize the City of Sebastopol CompetitonArticlesRebuilding Japan: Lessons in Architectural Response ConferenceArticlesProject locationAddress:Portland, OR, USALocation to be used only as a reference.

She worked as a staff journalist with the Irish Press and Evening Press before moving to Clare. She has worked as a freelance for all of the national newspaper titles and a staff journalist in Limerick, helping to launch the Limerick edition of The Evening Echo. Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. NewsCancer survivor Lauren is fighting for an educationBy Bernie English – November 19, 2015 1481 Lauren McGrath from Cappagh, Askeaton who can’t go to school. Picture: Keith WisemanNINE year-old Lauren McGrath has battled with cancer not one but twice. Yet, despite her tremendous courage, she is deprived of the company of her friends and the chance of a proper education because of the lack of a Special Needs Assistant.Lauren passes out up to forty times a day but can only have the services of a part-time SNA, which means she has not been able to go to school since June.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Lauren and her family in Askeaton have been fighting to get her well for years. The gruelling treatment she endured included a bone-marrow transplant, extensive chemotherapy and eight full body sessions of radiation.But while the treatment cleared the cancer, it took its toll on Lauren’s health.“Last November, she just started dropping,” explains her mother, June.“She has scar tissue on her brain from the cancer treatment and she has developed epilepsy. Specialists are trying to find a medication to help get her life back but in the meantime she needs constant attention.“Lauren can’t go to the bathroom alone as she would fall. When she walks anywhere, I have to hold her under her two arms in case she drops. The seizures only last seconds, but she can hurt herself. We tried sending her to school using a shared SNA, but she was coming home full of cuts and bruises. We just couldn’t risk sending her back,” June told the Limerick Post.Lauren’s handwriting has deteriorated and her cognitive abilities and ability to carry out simple co-ordination task have all diminished.“The school principal has asked if we will bring her in for the two hours a day that he can guarantee she will have one-on-one attention from an SNA. We will try that but she is still being deprived of a proper education. She’s survived cancer but now my daughter is here on the couch and the world has forgotten her”.A consultant neurologist wrote to the school and the National Council for Special Education (NCSE) stating that Lauren needs 24 hour supervision, but it is very important she continues to go to school. She absolutely meets the criteria for an SNA,” the letter states. The neurologist went on to describe Lauren’s condition as “rare” and “severe”.An NCSE spokesperson said they do not comment on individual cases but that they had allocated 1.5 SNA posts to meet the care needs of four students in St. James primary school in Cappagh, Askeaton for the 2015/2016 school year.“We are satisfied that the school can manage and deploy the SNA support allocated to meet their care needs.“All schools were advised of their right to appeal when the SNA decisions issued in July. St. James appealed the level of SNA support allocated to the school and this was processed by a special educational needs organiser who was not involved in the original decision. The appeal was not upheld and the school principal was notified of this in early October”, the spokesperson said.

Facebook Twitter By admin – March 25, 2018 PERRYMAN: Another win for the Texas economy Local NewsBusiness Ray Perryman is the head of The Perryman Group and serves as a distinguished professor at the International Institute for Advanced Studies. Texas continued its streak of wins of Site Selection Magazine’s “Governor’s Cup” competition, which goes to the state with the most major corporate location and expansion projects in a year. The 2017 win is the sixth in a row, and the Lone Star State also won in 2004, 2005, and 2010 (and was a close second in several of the years between). It’s impressive by any measure, and more so given the fact that a major export industry (energy) was struggling during part of the time.Only projects with a capital investment of at least $1 million, 20 or more new jobs, or 20,000 square feet of new construction are counted. Last year, Texas had 594 such projects, which is down from 642 in 2016 and 702 in 2015. Texas finished well ahead of second-ranked Ohio (467 projects) and the rest of the top five of Illinois (419), Georgia (281), and North Carolina (274). Of the top five, only North Carolina’s projects total was up in 2017 over the 2016 level.The state’s success is due to a spectrum of benefits to potential locating companies. At the most basic level, Texas has resources — a large and growing population, oil and gas, a coastline favorable to shipping, abundant land (much of which is excellent for farming), a relatively moderate climate, and a central location, among others. All of these characteristics provide opportunities.In addition, decisions made and efforts undertaken in decades past fundamentally changed and enhanced the state economy. Visionary business and community leaders took action, and the benefits are still being realized. For example, the roots of the Texas technology sector go back to attracting MCC (the Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation, which was the first and at one time the largest research and development consortium in the industry) and Sematech (a non-profit research and development consortium focusing on chip manufacturing) to the state back in the 1980s.Herculean efforts were required to get these leading-edge research organizations to come to the state. Individuals in the public and private sectors, the University of Texas and the state’s other research universities, and a variety of entities were involved. In fact, when Austin was selected for MCC (with incentives including a subsidized lease, low-cost mortgages for personnel, and upgrades at UT and Texas A&M programs in computer science and electrical engineering), competing cities were heard to complain that Austin bought the project. That’s an overstatement, of course, because Texas offered a favorable location in a number of other ways, but to the extent that incentives tipped the scales and contributed to a “win” for the state, it was money well spent (to say the least). In truth, the Texas offerings were less than some others, but were structured in an advantageous manner.Another decision which is paying off is the path Texas took to introducing competition into electric power. The state’s method of deregulating has served as a model for other areas and has resulted in more consumer choice and lower prices than we would have otherwise. The requirements related to developing renewable energy sources contributed to rapid and extensive increases in wind and solar capacity. Now, with attention to climate change and carbon footprints continuing to increase, some firms are basing location decisions on the ability to purchase all needed power from renewable sources. High-profile firms such as Amazon, Google, and Apple are committed to using green power in data centers and other facilities, for example. The fact that Texas has more wind power than any other state (by a huge margin) as well as solar and other forms of renewable energy is a notable competitive advantage.These are only two of many examples of wise courses of action taken decades ago which continue to pay benefits. In fact, Texas was never close to the top of the list prior to implementing a number of innovative incentive programs, which remain vital to recruitment efforts. For most location decisions, however, the primary consideration is workforce. In Texas, our large population is not only growing, but also younger than in many areas. We have education and training in place which is turning out people prepared to fill the needs of today’s complex businesses. Furthermore, the state has a reputation for high productivity and a can-do attitude among workers. I have heard countless comments as I travel around the nation (and beyond) about the overwhelmingly impressive responses of individuals, businesses, government agencies, and everyone else during the Hurricane Harvey crisis. The eyes of the world were on the Lone Star State, and the courage and resilience demonstrated was (and still is) inspiring.Texas is well positioned to remain a growth leader. There are daunting challenges, but we can deal with them through enlightened public policy. Working to continue to improve across the spectrum from education to infrastructure is important, as is ensuring we keep pushing forward in purposeful and strategic economic development. Texas also needs to avoid the types of policies that are viewed unfavorably by technology companies and knowledge workers. Luck of the draw gave the state an enviable starting point, but it’s no accident that we are where we are. The choices made now can set the stage for future prosperity, keeping Texas at the top of the list of places to live and work for decades to come.

iStock(NEW YORK) — A storm has moved into the Western U.S. and it’s bringing heavy rain, wind and snow to the region today, before it moves toward the Midwest on Sunday night and early Monday.There are wind alerts, winter storm warnings, flash flood watches and winter weather advisories issued for parts of California to parts of Montana and Idaho.As the storm brings widespread precipitation to the West this weekend, it will bring periods of heavy rain to coastal California, including San Francisco and Los Angeles. Between 1- 4” of rain is expected in the San Francisco Bay area, which could cause flooding in areas.North of the Bay Area, some of the heaviest rain forecasted will fall over recent burn scars, increasing the threat of debris flows and mudslides. This includes areas affected by the Camp Fire, Mendocino Complex Fire, Carr Fire, and Kincade Fire.Rainfall rates at some of these burn areas could be as high as 0.75” per hour. Additionally, winds could gust up over 40 mph at times, which could lead to power outages in Northern California.Meanwhile in the Sierra, it will be dangerous to travel this weekend, especially in the mountain passes of I-80. Four feet of snow is expected, making travel extremely difficult. Snowfall rates could be intense at times, especially Saturday night in the Sierra near Reno, where whiteout conditions are possible.This system will join up with a couple of disturbances to bring some hazardous impacts Sunday night and Monday. The main concern will be a narrow band of snow that is likely to move into the Upper Midwest, including parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin. Additionally, heavy rain will move into parts of the Ohio Valley and East Coast.Up to 6″ of snow is possible in parts of the Upper Midwest through Monday, especially along the border of Wisconsin and Michigan. Snow is likely to impact the morning commute in Minneapolis on Monday.However, the most notable impact from this latest storm will be that it opens the door for very cold air to come into the U.S. On Wednesday morning, temperatures will drop dramatically. Wind chills will be as low as -35 in parts of the Midwest, and even down toward Chicago wind chills will be below zero. It appears right now that Minneapolis will likely not reach above zero degrees on Wednesday.By Thursday of next week, a large swath of the Central and Eastern U.S. will see temperatures below average.
