Archbishop Alexios delivered his own greeting in English. None of this is earth-shattering but again to clarify.

Clearly the hand of the new bishop was the dominant factor in this which bodes well for the diocese. His close relationships with Orthodox hierarchs was self-evident with two archbishops [one the Metropolitan of Atlanta in whose jurisdiction Miami occurs] occupying a special place in the procession and center seats behind the altar facing the congregation. His theological training and early ordained ministry in the C of E was noted with two or perhaps three English bishops participating. This liturgy should be a model for other dioceses!

Rev. Peter David Eaton was ordained and consecrated bishop coadjutor in the Diocese of Southeast Florida on May 9. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori served as chief consecrator. Photo: Barbara Lawless/Diocese of Southeast Florida[Diocese of Southeast Florida] Peter David Eaton was ordained and consecrated bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of Southeast Florida on May 9 in a service held at Trinity Cathedral in Miami, Florida.Eaton will be the fourth bishop of the Southeast Florida, succeeding the Rt. Rev. Leopold Frade, who will retire in January 2016 after 16 years of service to the diocese.Over 1,200 people witnessed the service in person at the cathedral and via live stream video from a nearby hotel. Bishops from all over the country and the world attended the service. A historic occasion, this was the first time four bishops from churches in full communion with The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion participated in a service and together were co-consecrators of an Episcopal bishop. The Old Catholic Churches of the Union of Utrecht in Europe, the Mar Thoma Syrian Church of Malabar in India, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Moravian Church in North America were all participants.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori led the service as chief consecrator and the Rt. Rev. Stephen Conway, the bishop of Ely, and one of Eaton’s classmates at Cambridge University, preached. The ecumenical representation from Christian churches from around the world made this consecration a significant event within The Episcopal Church. Frade recognized the significance of their presence as they greeted the crowd. A representative of the Armenian patriarch of Jerusalem and the ecumenical patriarch of Constantinople processed along with other leaders of the church. “We have come here from the holy city of Jerusalem to participate in this holy day and our happiness increases greatly to see the day when Peter has been made a bishop,” said the representative of theArmenian patriarch.Other interfaith and ecumenical representatives were the Roman Catholic bishop of Palm Beach, the archbishop of Miami, and the Greek Orthodox patriarch of Jerusalem.At the end of the service, guests cheered the consecration choir for their joyful, melodic voices, which brought most to their feet. The group included choristers from parishes around the Diocese of Southeast Florida. The music for the day, which included traditional songs in Spanish, French and English, also included special arrangements by several organists and the choir’s conductor, Matthew Steynor.The Rt. Rev. Peter David Eaton will be enthroned on Jan. 30 at Trinity Cathedral in Miami.— Altoria White is director of communications for the Diocese of Southeast Florida.

This project started as a diagnosis on an existing building, and it is only after a precise analysis of the construction, that the choice of a demolition / reconstruction was made. Indeed, the existing building, built at the beginning of the century, was of a small interest, architecture and urban wise, and was handicapped by a very constraining inner organization, that made his restructuration impossible. The project is thus conceived as the ghost of the former building, but also as an antidote to the problems it was revealing.Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApavisaBetonCompositesULMA Architectural SolutionsPolymer Concrete Facade in Vertical Slat HomeWoodEGGERTimberBulk / NeutralityThe new building borrows the smoothness and compacity of the former building, in a slightly oversized bulk, in scale with the two neighboring buildings, and in order to qualify in an appropriate manner this typically parisian chamfer angle. The building shows off a certain neutrality, in accordance with the tradition of the domestic parisian architecture, but also as the affirmation of what should be the hardcore of any domestic architecture, an artifact that expresses little but strongly : its own construction and the pleasure to inhabit, here and now. The weaving of historical links, and the enhancement on the “art of living”, aim also to shape a timeless architecture, showing a slight ambiguity concerning the date of its construction. As the diagnosis has established, the former building had the main default of a very frozen inner organization, that makes its possible restructuration costly and complex. The idea to inscribe the new building in the long term, implied consequently to think of a structural and spatial organization that create some flexibility in the future evolution of the building. The slightly oversized bulk has thus allowed to compensate the tightness of the site by using its section : 25cm thick concrete slabs span the 7m between the load bearing facades, the perimeter walls and the central circulation core. As a result, the building offers in plan but also in its elevations (light-weight wooden frames) a great flexibility, that will make its evolution on the long term easy.Save this picture!© Philippe RuaultFrom UpClose OpeningsThe leading parameter in the organization of the project lies in the presence of an open urban landscape, the projection toward the outside of every inner spaces of the building compensating for the exiguity of the plot.Save this picture!© David BoureauLandingsThe size of the plot combined to the demands of the program weren’t allowing to create real private outdoor spaces. We consequently proposed oversized outside landings, that extend the indoor spaces of the dwellings, and are designed with the same care: sanded concrete floor, full height entrance door, stainless steel lining on its facades.Save this picture!© David BoureauWindowsThe reversal of the project toward the outside is also felt in the design of the windows. The concrete frame of the façade creates large cells in which are inserted light-weight elements, blind or glazed. The aluminium window frames outline panoramic openings and benefit from sills lowered to 50cm; the design of the window is inverted: the frame is placed on the outside of the reveal, the railing and the black-out screens inside, protected from winds and rain. The glazed frames slide on two planes in the small rooms or on three in the living rooms, creating 3,5 by 1,85m high openings that make the whole room a balcony on the city.Save this picture!© David BoureauMaterialityThe making of the building aim to a very factual expression of the materials. To enhance the monolithic appearance of the building, the concrete façade is poured without the traces of the formwork spacers (placed inside the openings), nor joints showing the restarts of concrete pouring. The light-weight elements (stainless steel panels and aluminium window frames) are placed on the same plane, to enhance contrasts and minimized offsets and other details that make façades age poorly. Structure and infills are thus associated without the usual mediation of offset joints and other precious articulations.Save this picture!PlanBaggy OrderThis articulation between structure and infills echoes more generally to a dialogue between the urban primary order of the structure, and the necessary irregularity of a dwelling program (typologies puzzle, position of the windows according to the rooms…). The organization of the building creates for every dwelling a sunny and clear view on the east façade. 2 rooms apartments are stacked in the south bay, 4 rooms apartments are organized as upward or downward duplexes in the north bay. The pattern of the façade is a clear transcript of this organization, regular on the south bay more complex on then north bay, duplexes creating groups of three levels. In this way, the building expresses this kind of baggy order that should be the main quality of any domestic architecture.

Twitter Haeven Gibbonshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/haeven-gibbons/ TCU’s Food Recovery Network (FRN) is on hold due to COVID-19 regulations that restrict the group from delivering excess food off campus. In a normal semester, the student-led organization picked up food three times a week from campus dining locations and then delivered it to the Northside Inter-Community Agency and Union Gospel Mission. “I’m of course very disappointed that we are not able to pick up where we left off last semester and continue with deliveries,” said Sendy Argueta, TCU’s Food Recovery Network president. “But I’m hopeful that we will soon figure out a way to cope with the current situation and implement the necessary precautions that will allow us to get back to actively fighting food waste and helping out our community, especially in times like these, where the need may be even greater.”TCU has suspended all university-sponsored domestic and international travel until at least Dec. 31, 2020. Any exceptions have to be approved by the university. Wade Goodmay, the executive chef for TCU athletics who helps get the food together for FRN, said he wishes there weren’t rules in place that stop them from delivering food. “It’s heartbreaking,” he said. “It’s something that needs to be done,” Goodmay added. “It is by far one of the most important things- helping those that are without.” For Goodmay, helping out with FRN is personal. He was homeless for about a month when he lived in San Francisco.Having food available was a big part of his life and it is a reality a lot of people do not understand, he said. TCU’s FRN serves food at Union Gospel Mission last October. (Photo courtesy of @tcu.foodrecovery Instagram)Reducing food waste before it happensChanges to dining brought on by COVID-19 and an ongoing effort to cut down on food waste have reduced the amount of leftover food at TCU. In 2018, TCU dining staff partnered with Leanpath to reduce food waste on campus. While composting or donating food can help deal with leftover food, Leanpath works to stop waste from occurring by using technology to help kitchens weigh food and track food waste. Even before COVID-19, changes were being seen. Instead of having multiple pans of leftover food at the end of a meal, there was a manageable amount of food that would be given to FRN to take to Union Gospel Mission.This semester, TCU is repurposing proteins and using some food for compost, but most sides and vegetables are trashed, said Lamont Meriwether, the manager at Market Square. All food is served to-go style at on-campus dining locations. Since the days of buffets are temporarily gone, there is less food waste. “Students are only taking with them what they really need,” said Swati Bharathi, the marketing director for dining services. “Students are not overstuffing their plates, so that has helped.”Operating under restrictions TCU is not the only campus operating under restrictions.According to FRN National, only 22% of the 180 total chapters are doing regular recoveries, 10% are unable to do recoveries, and the remainder are in talks with their food donors or administration about what level of student activity is allowed. FRN National’s official chapters span across the United States. Click here to view the map on the official FRN website. (Map courtesy of Food Recovery Network)FRN at TCU is hosting Zoom events with speakers to educate members on issues of food waste and sustainability. Celebrity chef Joel Gamoran spoke to the group about reducing food waste and practicing sustainability at home. A zoom event held by TCU’s FRN on September 14. Celebrity Chef Joel Gamoran spoke at the event. (Photo courtesy of @tcu.foodrecovery Instagram)“Even if you aren’t actively volunteering or recovering or seeing that impact day-to-day, right now, we have time to set ourselves up for a lifetime of making an impact by continuing to learn and have conversations with people,” said Sydney Carroll, a programs and special events fellow and FRN national team member. Carroll said they want to help students gain an awareness of the needs of people who are food insecure and the intersecting issues such as racial injustice and income inequality that make food insecurity a prevalent issue in America. FRN National is providing online opportunities to help chapters volunteer online, engage in leadership opportunities, learn by attending webinars and connect with other chapters even if they are not currently able to recover food. “People are still there waiting for their food and food is still getting thrown away,” said Argueta. Argueta said the organization is currently brainstorming ways they can reduce risk to be able to pick-up and deliver food before they request special permission to leave campus.

(Photo by weather.gov/fortworth) Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday printThe freezing temperatures gripping North Texas prompted TCU to close the campus for weekend.All in-person classes, events and meetings will be moved to an online format. This includes the COVID-19 vaccination site, which has been pushed back a week. School officials advised students to stay off roads and sidewalks.North Texas is under a Winter Storm Warning through 6 p.m. Monday. The National Weather Service has warned that there could be 3-6 inches of snow and windchills as low as -15 degrees. Temperatures are expected to remain frigid throughout the weekend and into next week.Fort Worth National Weather Service meteorologist Lamont Bain said this cold weather is a rare occurrence.“We’ve got cold air mass that’s moving south from Canada and a lot of cloud cover,” Bain said. “We’re looking at a very active jet stream pattern. Typically we don’t have cold air and moisture in place, but we’ve got strong winds in the system.”Bain said it’s likely to stay cold through the middle of next week, and temperatures may not get above freezing until Wednesday.The cold could make travel treacherous and residents are warned that roads, bridges, overpasses and sidewalks could ice over. Earlier this week, the weather caused multiple freeway closures due to accidents, including a 100- car pileup on Interstate 35W. Although it is still a developing story, there are six casualties confirmed by Fort Worth police and fire officials.These conditions caused a number of schools and universities to close their campuses and either cancel classes or move them online.TCU student Jacob Makowecki, junior accounting major, said though the weather is very cold, it is convenient that most classes are online.“I know for most of my friends and I, our classes are mostly online so we do not need to leave our houses much,” Makowecki, who living off campus, said. “Basically there’s no such thing as snow days anymore, because everything can be put online.” Newest DFW retail store offers a different kind of discount shopping Logan Orsinihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/logan-orsini/ Previous articleHoroscope: February 13, 2021Next articleHorned Frogs one-upped by Longhorns from start to finish, fall in Austin Logan Orsini RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Logan Orsinihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/logan-orsini/ ReddIt Twitter What we’re reading: Biden to pull troops out of Afghanistan, Chauvin chooses not to testify Logan Orsini Facebook Logan Orsinihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/logan-orsini/ Dispute over 24/7 poker room in Hulen Pointe Mall resolved Linkedin World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Linkedin Logan Orsinihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/logan-orsini/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Welcome TCU Class of 2025

Under the other amendment, which is backed by the government and has also been approved by the senate, journalists could be fined for publishing information about judicial cases that come under the anti-terrorism law. It also provides for jail terms for whistleblowers who leak this information to the media. The two laws, which could take effect as early as 21 May if approved by the chamber of deputies, are the subject of intense debate in Chile at a time of tension in connection with ongoing judicial investigations into cases of corruption, abuse of authority and illegal campaign funding involving politicians (included associates of President Michelle Bachelet), business leaders and military officers. “We condemn the manoeuvring by the Chilean executive and legislature in connection with these two measures, which would deal a major blow to the right to information and would constitute a significant backward step for democracy in Chile,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America desk. “Chile’s deputies must choose transparency by voting against these ‘gag laws’, which are clearly designed to protect private interests and to conceal information that could compromise the government”. Supreme court president Hugo Dolmetsch has described the proposed amendments as “a return to judicial investigative secrecy” while Claudio Uribe, the president of the National Association of Public Prosecutors, said they would “only help a small number of people – those close to the government and the owners of large fortunes.Despite its relatively stable democracy and a good ranking in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index (31rd out of 180 countries), Chile continues to suffer from corruption and from hangovers from the military dictatorship.RSF condemned a military court’s violation of the principle of the confidentiality of journalists’ sources in November 2015, after the court pressured the magazine The Clinic to reveal its sources for a story about a scandal involving army officers. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) opposes two proposed legislative amendments in Chile – called “gag laws” by critics – that would penalize anyone leaking information about ongoing judicial investigations to the media.

Tamir Kalifa/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — The U.S. government said late Thursday that it has reunited about 14 percent of the migrant children aged 5-17 separated from their families at the border, as a court-ordered deadline looms less than a week away.Of the 2,551 children stripped from their parents or family members, 364 have been reconnected, according to the latest statement provided to ABC News by the Department of Health and Human Services. Of the 103 children younger than 5, 57 have been reconnected.The court-ordered deadline to reunite everyone, issued by U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, is July 26.The government said that, in the coming days, it will provide various lists of parents and children to plaintiffs in the case, but admitted they’re “still determining” whether they can provide a list of parents in criminal custody.More than 900 children are either “not eligible or not yet known to the eligible,” with the vast majority undergoing evaluations to verify next of kin and therefore ensure child safety, according to official reports.The judge on Monday put a temporary hold on deporting parents as the government worked on a response to a request from the ACLU that parents receive at least a week to consider applying for asylum in the U.S. after they get their children back.
