In the video below he says, “The outcome of climate change is not potentially bad, it is potentially fatal, for the most fragile countries and regions on earth, and for the billions of people who live in them.”This year, Pope Francis has declared Sept. 1 an annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. His recently released video calls for a renewed awareness of the free gift of creation and asks that the month of September be a time of renewed commitment to pray and work for the protection of the environment.Resources for worship and prayer have been produced by the Environment Task Group of the Church of England. They are available online.The Anglican Communion Environmental Network (ACEN) also has a resource hub for the 2016 Season of Creation here.The Rt. Rev. Nicholas Holtam, bishop of Salisbury and the Church of England’s lead bishop on the environment, has celebrated the resources. He said: “Celebrating Creationtide marks a shift in the Christian understanding of our relationship to creation under God. The consequences of teaching over recent centuries that humanity has been given domination over creation are clear in the complex environmental crisis we now face. It is important that Christians rediscover older traditions of a godly relationship of humanity to the wider created order.”Follow the links below for further resources for prayer and action:Season of Creation websiteWorld Day of Prayer for the Care of CreationOrganise a prayer serviceTake action Rector Bath, NC Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Submit a Press Release Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Shreveport, LA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Tampa, FL Rector Pittsburgh, PA Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Events Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME

Photo: Episcopal Church video[Episcopal News Service] The Title IV hearing panel dealing with Albany Bishop William Love’s refusal to allow same-sex marriages in his diocese has been rescheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was originally set to take place on April 21 in Colonie, New York.In 2018, after the passage of General Convention Resolution B012 — which allows same-sex marriages to be performed across the church, wherever it is legal to do so — Love issued a letter stating he would not abide by the resolution and would continue to block same-sex marriages in his diocese. During a House of Bishops meeting in September 2019, it was announced that Love would face a hearing under the church’s Title IV disciplinary process.In a letter to his diocese on April 16, Love said he had been informed by Bishop Nicholas Knisely of Rhode Island, chair of the hearing panel, that the hearing would not take place as scheduled and that it may be held virtually. Love said the panel is “currently working through the logistical as well as legal requirements for such a meeting to occur.”“It is my hope and prayer that a new date will be set soon,” Love wrote.

Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your name here By Allen BrownIn a world that is getting more and more concerned about climate change and pollution, reusable water bottles are a small but significant step you can make to improve the ecological situation. After all, although plastic is recyclable, the majority of single-serving plastic bottles still end up on the landfill. That’s why a reusable bottle can represent a perfect solution – they are highly functional, good for the planet, and will keep you hydrated. However, if you want to start using reusable bottles, there are some things you need to know. Let’s see what are the most important facts about these products before you purchase one.What Are The Available Materials and Design? One of the most important decisions you’ll have to make prior to buying a reusable water bottle is the type of material it is made of. As stated by the professional from Iron Flask, if you want something that is built to last while also has an elegant look, stainless steel would be the proper choice. This material ensures your liquid stays at a preferred temperature for a longer time. Cold drinks can stay that way up to 24 hours while hot drinks can stay nice and warm up to 12 hours. Another perk of using stainless steel bottles is that they look good no matter where you’re going or what you’re doing. They are equally trendy in the hand of an athlete as well as in the hand of a successful businessman. When it comes to materials, another possible option is plastic. These tend to be very flexible and durable, which is why they are also often used by those doing some kind of sports activity. You can also opt-in for water bottles made of glass. This is a great option given the fact that glass is a natural material and, as such, is great for the storage of food and liquids. However, when making a decision on material, don’t forget that whatever one you choose will affect the weight of the bottle.The Reasons to Start Using Reusable BottlesA study published in 2017 in the Science Advances journal states that world oceans and landfills contain around 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic trash, so, deciding to eliminate the use of plastic in your everyday life, or at least keeping it down to a minimum, can affect the global environment. Aside from this, it’s better for your health. Why? Well, single-use bottles have been found to release chemicals into your liquids, and while studies have shown the amounts to be negligibly low, who wants any chemicals entering an otherwise healthy body, when you have an alternative option.Although they might seem a bit expensive at first, reusable water bottles are actually very budget-friendly in the long run. In the United States, people are spending $5 each week on bottled water. When you start adding up numbers, you will soon realize that reusable bottles as part of your everyday routine definitely pays off. If you choose one that is made of stainless steel, you could pretty much have it for the rest of your life. The Maintenance of Reusable Bottles When it comes to reusable bottle maintenance, the experts advise you to wash them after every use or at least once a day. This is certainly more than most people do. Even if all you do is use them for water, bacteria develop in a damp and dark environment such as inside a bottle. Nobody would want to drink from an object that contains germs and bacteria. The important thing to keep in mind when considering best practice, is that the material used in the making of a reusable bottle doesn’t matter. Germs will flourish in both glass and stainless steel environments with an equal amount of success. Also, the size of the bottle will not make any difference either – they all need to be cleaned. Disassemble the bottle as much as possible. These will often include a lid, a rubber gasket, and any other part that can be removed. You can wash them in a dishwasher or by hand. If you go for the latter option, all you need is eco-friendly dish soap and a bottle brush. All in all, the whole procedure will last a minute or two. Just make sure you rinse it with hot water and let it air dry.Special Features This has become a highly competitive market so it comes as no surprise that more and more manufacturers are adding special features to their products. One of the most popular is a water filter. If you can handle the extra cost, this is certainly a good investment. If you want to reduce your footprint on the environment while also reducing the harmful effects of single-use bottles on your health, reusable bottles are a way to go. They are highly functional, budget-friendly, and easy to maintain. You have entered an incorrect email address!

This single-family house is located on a former cooperative workers’ estate and replaces a building designed in 1948 in the spirit of the garden city. Its close proximity to the airport meant that the municipal building regulations largely ceased to have effect. The resulting restriction to a slightly larger replacement building and the distance guidelines created a lengthwise rectangular plan and volume.Save this picture!© Valentin JeckSave this picture!Plan 0Save this picture!© Valentin JeckA slight rotation of the upper floor in comparison to the two floors below articulates the building and brings it into scale with its surroundings. This moment of phenomenological irritation is moved into the foreground while solutions to specific details are handled with discretion. A window grid is implied by slightly set back, niche-like surfaces. The use of fewer window types and a restrained formwork pattern allow the storey-high twisting to emerge as a distinctive motif of the façade.Save this picture!© Valentin JeckInside the building, the modest dimensions and the decision to eschew hallways create a sense of intimacy. In each room, the corporeal building envelope of insulating concrete is omnipresent. In contrast stands the separation of the external elements of the composition. The house, the showcase balcony of steel construction and the garage as a precast concrete element are spread loosely across the plot. These necessary functional elements create an immediate context within the surrounding greenery.Save this picture!© Valentin JeckMaterialisation in insulating concrete allows a systematic to be achieved in the solution of the necessary building details. The structural elements of the façade and the interior are all part of the cast shell. The formal severity inside and out is not an aesthetic end in itself. It aims rather to provide an economical use of moments of irritation and serves to channel the viewer’s attention.Project gallerySee allShow lessDyson Campus / WilkinsonEyreSelected ProjectsExplore the Fascinating Overlap of Architectural Styles Throughout History With “The…Architecture News Share Projects 2012 Save this picture!© Valentin Jeck+ 20 Share Architects: HDPF Area Area of this architecture project Year: CopyAbout this officeHDPFOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRümlangSwitzerlandPublished on September 19, 2016Cite: “Haus Meister / HDPF” 19 Sep 2016.

During his walk, he slept in the tent he carried with him or relied on the kindness of strangers, often being put up by lifeboat crew or people who met him along the way.His travels took him clockwise around Britain and Ireland starting and finished at Minnis Bay in Kent, and including the Isle of Man, and the Western and Northern Isles. He has been chased by bulls, met Princess Anne, and slept in church doorways, sheep sheds and bird hides, while also visiting over 200 lifeboat stations.His initial fundraising target was £10,000 in honour of his father Sir Raymond Ellis who had spent much of his life dedicated to charity work and fundraising before falling ill. Ellis-Roswell now has a fundraising target of £95,000, which would represent £10 for every mile he has walked. At the end of his walk he had raised £62k and the figure is still rising.Ellis-Roswell said:“My dad’s ultimate stubbornness against what seemed to be a never ending cycle of illness, pain, operations and setbacks will always be a very personal inspiration to me. I started off thinking about £10,000 then £20,000 then £50,000. I suppose reaching this target shows how well supported the RNLI is by the people, places and communities I’ve walked through, especially when for many people money is tight.”Main image: Walker Alex Ellis-Roswell.

The following statement was released by Workers World Party 2016 Presidential Candidate Monica Moorehead and Vice Presidential Candidate Lamont Lilly on Sept. 3.Representatives of some 300 Indigenous nations and their supporters have since Aug. 18 blocked the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline, meant to be built under the Missouri, Mississippi and Big Sioux rivers in violation of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s federally protected rights. Despite violent police-orchestrated terror, including the use of dogs, the heroic resistance led by Indigenous people has only grown stronger, sparking national and international support.A series of solidarity events under the banner of “#NoDAPL Global Weeks of Action” began on Sept. 3 and will continue through Sept. 17. See nodaplsolidarity.org.We are in full solidarity with the magnificent struggle of thousands of Indigenous and non-Native people who are at Standing Rock, in what is now known as North Dakota, protecting the land and water against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. They are protecting the Missouri River and the drinking water of millions against the brazen efforts of corporations and corrupt politicians to push through an unnecessary pipeline on the Standing Rock Sioux Nation’s treaty land and despite Standing Rock’s lack of consent.Indigenous Nations throughout the Americas have been on the frontlines of environmental devastation for decades. It is long past time for everyone to respect Indigenous leadership, listen to Indigenous voices and stand with Indigenous peoples in their many struggles.We respect and honor the sovereignty and right to self-determination of Standing Rock and all Native Nations. We fully recognize the necessity of their right to refuse consent for any development or exploitation of land and water in their territories, from Oak Flat, Ariz., to Mauna Kea, Hawaii. We are painfully conscious of the ongoing poverty and genocide experienced by Indigenous people both on and off reservations.Protecting the water and insisting that water is a human right are issues key to our future. While many people now know about the drinking water crisis in Flint, Mich., we also note that more than a tenth of Native homes in the the U.S. do not have clean drinking water. In addition to the water crisis in some colonies like Puerto Rico, we are aware that it also exists in Black and farming communities, while thousands of poor people live in cities that are aggressively shutting off water due to exorbitant fees.We acknowledge that all people in the U.S. today are living on Indigenous land. #NoDAPL and hundreds of other ongoing Indigenous struggles are as close to our hearts as the monumental struggles of Black people to defend their lives. Our solidarity with Native struggles is not newly born. Members of Workers World Party have supported freedom for Leonard Peltier, Wounded Knee in 1973, The Longest Walk, Big Mountain, the 1990 Mohawk blockade, the 1975 Menominee takeover, Indigenous Peoples’ Day struggles in many cities and much more. Our members also have a long and proud history of supporting anti-pipeline and anti-fracking struggles.As Black people whose Elders were attacked by dogs during the times of slavery and the Civil Rights struggles, we condemn the despicable actions of private security companies hired by the corporations behind the Dakota Access Pipeline that unleashed dogs and pepper spray on peaceful Water Protectors, including children. We share outrage at the injustice of peaceful Water Protectors having their road access blockaded by police and cell phone service cut off, while being subject to police surveillance and arrest.Finally, we call on all people who oppose corporate greed and destruction to take immediate action — locally and nationally — in support of the #NoDAPL Water Protectors and to follow Indigenous leadership to stop fracking and pipelines wherever they live. The rapacious corporate greed of capitalism can only be overturned by millions of people united in revolutionary struggle.Mni Wiconi.

But Jacque Lickteig, marketing coordinator for the City of Fort Worth’s code compliance, said these fees will reduce to $10 during National Adoption Weekend on Nov. 10-12. This price will include vaccination, microchipping, spaying/neutering and city licensing fees.Microchipping through the Texas Coalition for Animal Protection usually costs $30, according to the website.According to Lickteig, overcrowding is a common problem at the shelter, which makes spaying and neutering pets important. Fort Worth Animal Care and Control officers often visit schools to teach children about spaying and neutering pets as part of the shelter’s community outreach, she added.“Our team works hard to get as many [animals] as possible adopted,” Lickteig said. “But ideally, we wouldn’t have to worry so much if people were spaying and neutering their pets.”Microchipping pets is also important as it is the fastest and easiest way to find missing pets, she added.Lickteig is an animal lover herself, owning five dogs and four cats, some of whom were adopted through Animal Care and Control. She said it is difficult to not end up adopting a pet while working closely with shelter animals.While Lickteig said large dogs are their biggest concern, the shelter staff tries to match animals with owners whose lifestyles fit with that animal’s breed and temperament.“If we know that the family’s kind of a low-key, low-activity family and they want a dog that’s not a lot of work or cat that’s not a lot of work, we’ll try to pair them up with the right one so that there aren’t any issues when they do adopt,” she said.Charlene Baxter is the owner of Glamour Paws, an animal grooming salon on Forest Park Boulevard. Baxter said she supports the shelter’s push for adoptions.While pet adoptions help her business, Baxter said that adopting from shelters is often a better option than buying from a breeder.“I would definitely encourage people to adopt before they just go buy from a breeder because most of the times, the breeders are just over-breeding and they’re in it for the money, where the shelters are actually helping the pets,” she said.Baxter said about half of the animals she sees at the salon were either adopted or former strays. One customer even won her dog in an auction. However, Baxter said she would advise people to remember that no dog comes free of charge – even the strays – and to research breeds before adopting.TCU alumnus Julie Bassett adopted her cat, Tucker, while in college in 2006. (Photo courtesy of Julie Bassett)Former Fort Worth local Brittany Ryan just moved to Portland with her dog, Freya, who she adopted from the Fort Worth shelter in 2015. Ryan said she wanted to adopt an older pet because her busy lifestyle made it hard to make time for training. She said the adoption process was easy, inexpensive and that the shelter staff was invested in doing what was best for the animals.“The more outreach the shelters do, the more people who will realize that not only can they almost certainly find an animal that suits their living situation and lifestyle, but also that they might find a particular animal that is perfect for them,” she said.Brittany Ryan’s dog, Freya, at the Fort Worth Animal Care and Control Shelter in 2015. She was adopted that same day. (Photo courtesy of Brittany Ryan)Ryan added that there is always a period of transition for shelter animals, who sometimes take a few months to adapt to life outside the shelters.“Coming out of the shelter once they’re adopted – many times, it’s great, it’s fine,” Lickteig said. “But before making a decision about returning it would be good to give [shelter animals] a little bit of time to adjust to their new environment, especially if they’ve been at the shelter for a long period of time.”Freya in the Fort Worth Animal Care and Control Shelter on adoption day, 2015. (Photo courtesy of Brittany Ryan)Lickteig said “love and patience is key” when adopting shelter pets – something Fort Worth paralegal Chloe Parker agreed with.Parker said she learned to be patient after adopting her border collie, Jax, from the Humane Society of North Texas during Clear the Shelters Day this summer. She said Jax was fearful at first and likely didn’t have enough human interaction at the shelter.Jax is improving now, but Parker said people should still do research before adopting animals – from reading about the needs of certain breeds to how the shelter is run.“Find out who does what kind of adoptions, what their practices are,” she said.Parker added that adopting from shelters and rescue groups is a good, ethical option for finding pets.“We don’t need puppy mills,” she said. “It’s a selfish thing to do. There are tons of animals who need loving homes.”Paralegal Chloe Parker adopted her dog, Jax, on Clear the Shelters Day this summer. (Photo courtesy of Chloe Parker)Lickteig said she hopes people visit the animals and consider adopting during the adoption weekend, but said spreading the word about spaying/neutering will help the shelter combat overcrowding in future.Photos of dogs and cats available for adoption can be found on the Fort Worth Animal Care and Control website.
