VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Youth Minister Lorton, VA Editors’ note: A year ago today, Oct. 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy set to reeling a large part of the East Coast of the United States. At least 147 people died in the Atlantic basin because of the storm; of that number 72 were killed in the mid-Atlantic and northeastern United States. Sandy caused an estimated $65.7 billion in damage, including destroying or damaging 650,000 homes and damaging hundreds of thousands of businesses. Episcopal News Service invited seven people to reflect on their experience of Sandy, what lessons they and their faith communities learned and what challenges they still face. All seven reflections are available here.[Episcopal News Service] After Hurricane Sandy ripped through Staten Island, destroying about a quarter of the island, there was an enormous outpouring of kindness and compassion from the community. Thousands of people whose homes were spared the destruction of Sandy came to the aid of their neighbors who lost everything. Young and old showed up to help clean streets, homes, beaches and parks. People realized that whether or not their home was damaged they were still part of this storm and it served as a catalyst to really bring everyone together with a common purpose of rebuilding community.This pulling together led to the creation of the Long Term Recovery Organization, a collaboration of over 80 organizations to better serve the Staten Island community throughout the process of recovery. This organization is an attempt to capitalize on the idea that things get done better together than apart.— Darrell Hayes is the Diocese of New York’s disaster recovery coordinator.It was remarkable to see how within six months a sense of normalcy returned due to the hard work and collaboration of many organizations. And, although the most visible destruction of Sandy has been removed – debris, boats on the streets, houses that were scattered across fields – the situation is still desperate for many people. There are still hundreds of homes that need to be rebuilt.It has been disheartening to see so many homeowners having to fight insurance companies to collect from their insurance policies. Many people have been told they weren’t covered by their polices due to technicalities. I have spoken to many homeowners that were not compensated fairly by their insurance companies and are left to rebuild their entire home with little or no money. Despite the lackluster response of the government and the insurance industry, Staten Island is recovering. Through the generosity of many disaster response programs like the Episcopal Church and other non-profit organizations, the homeowners have found some hope with rebuilding their lives.Beyond the immense challenge of rebuilding, homeowners also have the looming challenge of figuring out how to afford to raise their homes the required 10 to 15 feet that the government and insurance companies will be requiring in order for them to qualify for future insurance coverage. It will cost thousands of dollars that many simply don’t have, in addition to the long term increase in cost of flood insurance.While many homeowners are still facing a variety of challenges, the community also faces challenges of maintaining togetherness to see everyone to complete recovery. This community has withstood so much and needs to keep working together to ensure that the character of the neighborhoods remains intact. As time moves forward and Sandy is replaced by more immediate and visible disasters the work of the disaster response organizations becomes even more important. While many challenges remain, the community of Staten Island holds onto hope while moving everyday towards recovery.If anyone is interested in volunteering with the rebuilding effort please send an email to [email protected] or call us at 347-942-3787.— Darrell Hayes is the Diocese of New York’s (http://www.dioceseny.org/) disaster recovery coordinator.

The Canyon House. The owners (Ken Campbell, a professor of veterinary Physiology at Washington State University and his spouse Jean Campbell, an attorney) wanted a year-round retreat “to cultivate the spiritual aspects in the trinity of human, fish, and river” (their words). A place to write, sleep, talk, eat, read, fish, cleanse, garden and wander……. away from their work in Pullman, Washington – 50 miles from the site. Also, they wanted a wilderness place for their grandchildren to visit.Site: 40 acres on the southern side of the Clearwater River canyon – 10 miles upstream from Lewiston, Idaho.Save this picture!© Art GriceSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Art GriceIntentions: The retreat program was divided into two buildings: “the bunkhouse” is settled into a ravine along a seasonal stream and “the studio house” is perched on a finger ridge where a slope of bunch grass and Idaho fescue meet a Ponderosa Pine forest about 300 feet above the Clearwater River. The program was separated to encourage wanderings on the site and to create a triad of destinations…. the third destination is a perfectly shaped basalt knoll that provides a commanding observation point of the canyon. We resisted siting the house there, as it seemed appropriate to let it remain an “outside place”. The location of the studio house was determined by where you would have the best fish sighting. To use the owner’s words, “to mark the holding spot of steelhead for 200 yards in the fishy looking run along the river’s south bank”.Save this picture!© Art GriceThe form of the studio house is a simple rectangular box inserted into a moment resisting wooden frame. The frame and box follow the ridge slope and a bridge extension provides access to path that leads to the bunkhouse. The west side of the frame is a brise-soleil that provides access for window washing and support for removable perforated sliding panels- for shading and wind protection. On the east side, the frame supports decks and a screened porch with an outside shower. Strategically placed operable windows on all four sides of the studio house allow updraft ventilation as summer temperatures in the canyon often reach over 100 degrees. Transparency increases (amount of glass) as the building steps down the slope toward the river… in a sense, giving the illusion that it is “taking off” from the ridge. The “lines” of the studio house contrasts the 30% slope of the site that is mirrored by the strong roof incline with the orthogonal frame of strong verticals and horizontals (a distant derivative of some of the mining structures in the canyon).Save this picture!SectionsWhere the studio house is about exposure/transparency (windstorms often blast the canyon with 70mph gusts), the bunkhouse is a place to seek refuge. Tucked into the folds of a ravine about 300 yards away from the studio house, its east and west facades have small windows that frame views of microenvironments – a rock fall, a Hawthorne thicket, etc….. The south wall is entirely glazed and opens to a walled terrace built into the hillside with a stair that leads you up the ravine and out of the canyon. The north wall has an inclined “earth- sky window” for watching the soaring bird life and river below.Save this picture!© Art GriceProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Line Lofts / SPF: architectsSelected ProjectsFrancis Kéré to Design New Pine Log Pavilion for Tippet Rise Art CenterArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officePaul HirzelOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesJuliaettaUnited StatesPublished on May 17, 2018Cite: “Canyon House / Paul Hirzel” 17 May 2018.

January 9, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Digital economy bill would turn website hosts into censors and end e-mail privacy to go further Reporters Without Borders today appealed to the senate to amend the digital economy bill passed on second reading by the national assembly yesterday, so that the commercial companies that host websites do not have to act as Internet censors and decide if online content is legal, and so that there is no threat to the confidentiality of e-mail. The bill was presented by industry minister Nicole Fontaine.”The digital economy bill is an incoherent hodgepodge which even Internet professionals are hard put to understand,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “The jumble of articles approved by the national assembly representatives include measures that are very worrying for online free expression,” Ménard warned. “We support regulating the Internet, but we think this bill would violate freedoms and obstruct the Internet’s development,” he added.Article 2 of the bill, about the responsibilities of Internet technical service providers, is particularly worrying. It says service providers are responsible the content of the webpages on the sites they host. Hosts would become liable under common law of they did not “act promptly” to block content “after becoming aware of their unlawful nature.”But how are service providers supposed to decide whether or not content is lawful? Only judges are qualified to do this in France. Internet users would be able to demand the immediate withdrawal of content they consider unlawful. Website hosts – who oppose the bill – would be forced to censor any content likely to deemed unlawful for fear of being found criminally liable, with penalties of up to a year in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros for the manager of a service provider.The bill’s advocates argue that website hosts would be protected by a clause in the bill making improper accusations of illegality punishable by a year in prison and a fine of 15,000 euros. Nonetheless, legal decisions would still have to me taken by commercial companies, and they are not qualified to do this.The elimination of the concept of “private correspondence” in the definition of e-mail also poses a problem. Reporters Without Borders recognises the need for legislation on e-mail, above all to combat spam. But the Ollier amendment, jettisoning all mention of “private correspondence” outright, is a radical solution likely to threaten e-mail confidentiality. In an effort to combat “pirate” file exchanges (of music and film), the bill eliminates a key safeguard against e-mail surveillance. Socialist parliamentarian Patrick Bloche said: “a Pandora’s box has been opened … (and) I’m not sure if it’s a victory for the fight against piracy.”Jurists also need to look at another amendment which the national assembly made to the bill. The right to use the Internet, until now considered part of the right to radio and TV communication (under the freedom of communication law of 30 September 1986 and the radio and TV communication law of 29 July 1982) would become a distinct, autonomous right. The draft law’s rapporteur, Jean Dionis du Séjour, said this would distinguish “a universe of millions of far-flung content producers from a very capitalistic circle of video and audio professionals.”This is a good idea in principle. But the case law in this field is still very limited, so making the Internet an autonomous right could have complex legal consequences which even the specialists are hard put to predict. The Internet would no longer fall under broadcasting law and would therefore be set free from any control by the High Council for Broadcasting (CSA). This is a positive point. But website hosts would henceforth be tried under common law, which could be a disadvantage in some cases. For example, the period of limitation is different for an offence under the broadcasting law and under common law. Which would apply in the case of online content?The version of the bill that was adopted by the national assembly must now go back to the senate. Once passed by both chambers, it would have to be submitted for the approval of the constitutional council. In 2000, the council already rejected a law proposed by the socialist government which envisaged an identical model of responsibility for website hosts. Let’s hope the council also opposes the industry minister’s bill if the minister himself does not take the initiative of amending it.The text of this statement is also available in French and Spanish at www.internet.rsf.org “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says News News News Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU June 2, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on France Reporters Without Borders today appealed to the senate to amend the digital economy bill passed on second reading by the national assembly yesterday, so that the commercial companies that host websites do not have to act as Internet censors and decide if online content is legal, and so that there is no threat to the confidentiality of e-mail.

Fortunately, there is a life-changing event that provides stroke survivors with a renewed sense of energy and physical capability.On Friday, April 29, the American Stroke Association and longtime sponsor Huntington Hospital will bring together an intimate group of local stroke survivors, in various stages of recovery, to Brookside Golf Course in Pasadena for a day of golf therapy.At the event, stroke survivors will learn techniques for overcoming common stroke disabilities and increasing coordination and strength. They will take part in activities designed to improve their golfing skills, including driving, chipping and putting. Special equipment, such as adaptive carts and golf clubs will be available to participants with balance or coordination issues.Saving Strokes starts at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 1:00 p.m. The event is free and open to stroke survivors and caregivers. Lunch will be provided.Stroke is the leading cause of severe, long-term disability and No. 5 killer in the U.S. About 795,000 Americans will have a new or recurrent stroke this year – or one person every 40 seconds.Saving Strokes was developed by the American Stroke Association, a division of the American Heart Association, based on a 1999 University of Chicago study which showed that techniques important in golf – focus, dexterity and balance – can also improve strength and flexibility for stroke survivors.For information about Pasadena Saving Strokes, visit www.savingstrokes.com or contact Carrie Vines at [email protected] or (916) 446-6505.About the American Heart Association and American Stroke AssociationThe American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association are devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke – the two leading causes of death in the world.

Bryum cf. algens Card, was collected by SCUBA divers from 9-31 m in the benthos of perennially ice-covered Lake Vanda (77°32′S, 161°35′E), Wright Valley, southern Victoria Land, Antarctica. It occurred as a component of a microbial mat consisting primarily of Phormidium frigidum Fritsch, Lyngbya martensiana Menegh. and pennate diatoms. Contrastingly, B. cf. algens was not found in Lakes Bonney, Hoare, Chad and Fryxell located in adjacent Taylor Valley, nor was it found in any ice-free littoral regions of the lakes of Taylor and Wright Valleys investigated during the 1980-81 austral summer. Bryum algens is the most widespread bryophyte south of 56°S in Antarctica. Its wide range of morphological forms has caused many problems in its taxonomy. Based upon examinations by one of us (R. I. L. S.), it is probable that B. korotkevicziae Sav.-Lyub. & Z. Smirn. and its variety hollebachii Sav.-Lyub. & Z. Smirn. and an unidentified aquatic Bryum sp. from Ablation Valley, Antarctica may be ecotypes of B. algens. The findings of B. cf. algens in Lake Vanda is the southernmost known occurrence of a moss from a perennially liquid deep water (>0.5 m) habitat.
Relief of iron (Fe) limitation in the surface Southern Ocean has been suggested as one driver of the regular glacial-interglacial cycles in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). The proposed cause is enhanced deposition of Fe-bearing atmospheric dust to the oceans during glacial intervals, with consequent effects on export production and the carbon cycle. However, understanding the role of enhanced atmospheric Fe supply in biogeochemical cycles is limited by knowledge of the fluxes and ‘bioavailability’ of atmospheric Fe during glacial intervals. Here, we assess the effect of Fe fertilization by dust, dry-extracted from the Last Glacial Maximum portion of the EPICA Dome C Antarctic ice core, on the Antarctic diatom species Eucampia antarctica and Proboscia inermis. Both species showed strong but differing reactions to dust addition. E. antarctica increased cell number (3880 vs. 786 cells mL-1), chlorophyll a (51 vs. 3.9 μg mL-1) and particulate organic carbon (POC; 1.68 vs. 0.28 μg mL-1) production in response to dust compared to controls. P. inermis did not increase cell number in response to dust, but chlorophyll a and POC per cell both strongly increased compared to controls (39 vs. 15 and 2.13 vs. 0.95 ng cell-1 respectively). The net result of both responses was a greater production of POC and chlorophyll a, as well as decreased Si:C and Si:N incorporation ratios within cells. However, E, antarctica decreased silicate uptake for the same nitrate and carbon uptake, while P. inermis increased carbon and nitrate uptake for the same silicate uptake. This suggests that nutrient utilization changes in response to Fe addition could be driven by different underlying mechanisms between different diatom species. Enhanced supply of atmospheric dust to the surface ocean during glacial intervals could therefore have driven nutrient-utilization changes which could permit greater carbon fixation for lower silica utilization. Additionally, both species responded more strongly to lower amounts of direct Fe chloride addition than they did to dust, suggesting that not all the Fe released from dust was in a bioavailable form available for uptake by diatoms.
A celebration held by Dutch students at University College has been condemned as “racially insensitive, and arguably racist” by prominent members of the MCR.Both the Vice-President and Treasurer of University College’s MCR have condemned the celebration and attacked the “endemic apathy towards racism in the Oxford community.”Micaela Owusu, the MCR treasurer, wrote an open letter to the college, condemning the “Zwarte Piet” celebration which was held in the college at the end of last November.Owusu has stated that she saw two students in black face make-up sitting within a crowd of students to mark the Dutch holiday celebration.Traditionally, the “Zwarte Piet” feast is held on the 5th of December in Holland and celebrates “Black Peter” as the companion of St. Nicholas. It has frequently involved “blacking up” in imitation of the character.Owusu stated that as “one of a literal handful of black students at University College” she felt “extremely isolated and targeted in such a scenario.”She went on to state that the issue was not one of political correctness but the fundamental question of what should be acceptable in college common spaces. She said, “beyond the morality of partaking in a racially insensitive (and arguably racist) celebration, I question why such an event is deemed suitable for a University common space.“This is not a matter of political correctness, but a matter of fact that SEVERAL students felt unwelcome, uncomfortable, and/or discriminated against in our common room.”The organisers of the event have since apologised to Owusu and other potentially offended parties. They stated that they “express their sincere apology for having been the sender of hurtful expressions”. They explained that they “find an apology to be a very meaningful expression in itself, furthering awareness in both the sender and the recipient.”In return, Owusu responded via email saying, “I do very much appreciate the strides that the Dutch society has made to ensure that such an incident does not happen again.”She added though “these issues should never come to this point – a single student should not have to fight to demonstrate that she or he is also a face of the university.“Ultimately, as I stated in my original emails, my reaction to the “incident” was really not so much about me, but about people who may not feel as comfortable as I do in pointing out the egregious nature of the incidents that are continually occurring in our university spaces.”The Dutch students have also resolved to cease using make-up to depict “Black Peter” by wearing black make-up and will instead depict “whimsical characters of various rainbow colours”.However, several students within University College have defended the actions of the Dutch Society and denied that such actions should be thought of as racist.One student who defined himself as from an “ethnic minority” spoke out to support the celebration saying, “I don’t think this is an example of racism at all. It’s part of the national culture in Holland which is one of the most liberal countries. I’m an ethnic minority student and I’m completely fine with this.”Jim O’Connell, a second year PPEist, called the event an “unfortunate cultural misunderstanding” and denied that the college was turning a blind eye to racist activities. He said, “I think it is an unfortunate cultural misunderstanding. There is certainly no institutional racism at Univ, and a few bad apples aside, no widespread culture of prejudice at the University”.He also stated that a forum on the subject of political correctness organised by the college’s PPE Society will be held at the end of first week.He explained, “we thought that in the wake of recent events it would be appropriate to start our Beverage Soc speaker series with a discussion forum on political correctness. I don’t think Univ is a racist college at all but I think it is important for us to have a mature debate about ourselves and ask the question: how far is too far?”
The Real Good Food Company’s (RGFC’s) two principal businesses Renshaw and Napier Brown Foods are to amalgamate. The London office of RGFC has already closed and consolidated in Liverpool alongside the renamed renshawnapier.Renshaw is a leading manufacturer of marzipans, fondants, ready-to-roll icings, baking chocolate and jams, while Napier supplies sugar, including Fairtrade and organic.Stephen Heslop, CEO of RGFC, told British Baker: “There will be a small number of redundancies but having a flatter, more manageable structure means that we will be more efficient, with added flexibility to meet both current and new customers’ needs.”Over the next 12 to 24 months we will invest and innovate to broaden our customer offering.”We are really excited,” he added. “renshawnapier will be stronger and more focused. We will have just the right mix of skills, blending our tradi- tional skill set and quality service with a dynamic and inno- vative team.”
