Charles Chen of the Diocese of Taiwan accepts a stewardship award honoring his parish’s commitment to building churches. Photo/Janet Kawamoto[Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] Good stewardship can be a transforming experience, and the Episcopal Network for Stewardship celebrated four success stories with its Apostles in Transformational Stewardship awards during a July 6 reception at General Convention, meeting here.TENS president J.R. Lander and the Rev. Laurel Johnston, the Episcopal Church’s program office for stewardship, welcomed representatives of four dioceses – New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma and Taiwan – who accepted awards recognizing innovative, creative programs emphasizing stewardship of time, talent and treasure.The award winners were nominated by their dioceses at the request of TENS. Short video presentations described the programs and their effects.Following the awards presentation, the gathering heard a keynote address from the Rev. Canon Edwin Bacon, rector of All Saints Episcopal Church, Pasadena, in the Diocese of Los Angeles.First honored was the Rev. Charles C.T. Chen of St. James’ Episcopal Church and Kindergarten in Taichung, Taiwan, which has funded the construction of 12 other churches, although it is not a particularly wealthy congregation.“I pray that our example may be challenging and inspiring to others in Taiwan and throughout the world to serve others,” Chen told the gathering when accepting the award. “The world is full of selfishness and greed and the world is also full of corruption and indifference and, in the personal, broken relationships. Everyone wants to serve themselves, not others. We can show the world the joy that comes from serving others and serving Christ. ”Elizabeth McKay Moosbrugger of St. Paul’s, Cleveland Heights, Ohio, led the Diocese of Ohio’s “Bricks for Haiti” project, a response to the January 2012 earthquake that leveled much of the nation’s infrastructure, including the Episcopal Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, which had been a center of community life in Port-au-Prince. Moosbrugger inspired congregations in her diocese to find creative ways to raise money to contribute to the Episcopal Church’s relief efforts in Haiti.“I’ve been astounded by the power of that word, ‘yes,’” said Moosbrugger of the unexpectedly successful campaign, which raised more than 115% of its financial goal. “My ‘yes’ was followed by 68 parishes saying ‘yes.’” The efforts in Ohio, she said, also inspired other dioceses to assist Haiti, which is the largest diocese in the Episcopal Church.“I am honored to accept this award on behalf of all those who say yes to transforming the world through stewardship,” she concluded.Field Griffen of the Diocese of Oklahoma’s stewardship commission accepted the TENS award on behalf of the diocese. The commission created an annual giving campaign titled “Gratitude, Prayer and Faith,” which was intended “to bring about life-changing attitudes toward gratitude, giving and discipleship,” according to a program description. “While often our culture stresses the contractual nature of giving, [the program] addresses the joyful nature of covenantal giving,” the description said. Some congregations achieved a 30% increase in giving and many first-time pledgers.“Retelling people what they already know about stewardship is not enough,” Field said as he accepted the award, adding that what is necessary for success is to build a program that can transform lives.Clergy, lay leaders and diocesan leaders in the Diocese of New Hampshire built a stewardship program based on a rule of life and spiritual depth, “founded on prayer, non-profit management excellence and theological principles of stewardship,” according to a program description. Program leaders produced video messages, preaching notes and a campaign manual, as well as an annual stewardship institute. The result was a diocesan-wide increase in giving of 10% in a time of economic downturn.“This award tells the clergy, lay leaders and congregational donors of New Hampshire that courage, prayer and hard work do pay off,” said the Rev. Charles LaFond, canon for congregational life for the diocese.The people who built the program adopted a can-do attitude, he said. “When the recession hit, we prayed for mountains to be moved – and we brought our shovels.”In his keynote address, Bacon described the importance of generosity, which he said was the heart of stewardship. “One of my favorite geographical features on the planet is the headwaters at the top of the Jordan River — so tiny and insignificant, but it flows into this great river, then into the Sea of Galilee,” he said.The Sea is full of life, he continued — families and fishermen and boaters and jet skiers. Then the Jordan flows out of the Sea of Galilee into the Dead Sea — which is dead because nothing flows out of it, Bacon said.“We want you to be a Sea of Galilee, not a Dead Sea,” he told the assembly. “Absolutely everything we have is a gift from God. It is a great pleasure to give and give.”— Janet Kawamoto is an associate editor for Episcopal News Service.

Please enter your email address here New Fire Station, Community Center and Wastewater PlantThe State of the City AddressMayor Joe Kilsheimer laid out his administration’s accomplishments  and vision for the future in a 35-minute, 5,000-word State of the City address Monday morning. He touched on several issues including business in Apopka, municipal government, public safety, city finances, grants, economic development, The City Center, The Highland Manor, growth, education, and even the environment. The Apopka Voice is taking a comprehensive look at each section of the speech, with Municipal Government issues being the focus of part three.Part Three: Municipal GovernmentA common theme arose in Kilsheimer’s address when he spoke of the City’s goals for municipal government – building and improvements for 2017. However he began with a look at projects that were completed in 2016.“Earlier this year, Apopka’s Public Services Department completed a $12 million project – The Lake Apopka North Shore Water Reclamation facility,” Kilsheimer said. “It will augment future irrigation demands and help protect Central Florida’s underground drinking water supply. The department also completed the installation of more than 19,000 linear feet of reclaimed water pipeline.”There were also improvements made in Apopka parks and recreation facilities.“The Recreation Department  leveled and resodded four baseball fields at the Northwest Recreation complex. Batting cages and covered seating structures were added. A new scoreboard was added to the main football field. New programs were added including flag football and after-school care at Alonzo Williams Park. On behalf of the Apopka Amphitheater, we completed a formal Rental Agreement process. The result: More and more events are coming to Amphitheater. In 2016, that included a Cinco De Mayo event and a privately produced concert, featuring country music artistTravis Tritt. The Recreation Department also led the production of our spectacular July 4th Fireworks event and our Festive Winter Wonderland Event in Kit Land Nelson Park just two weeks ago.”Kilsheimer moved on to a massive project scheduled to begin in 2017, and the new fire station.A new fire station coming in 2017.“Later this month, our Public Services Department will oversee the launch of the largest single municipal construction project in Apopka’s history, a $61 million expansion of our wastewater treatment plant. We have completed preparations to build Station No. 5 on Jason Dwelley parkway. We expect to open station 5 in the summer of 2017 and bring on 18 new firefighters.”According to Kilsheimer, the AFD  responded to more than 6,600 emergency calls this year, trained more than 1,800 people in CPR, and conducted more than 1,400 Fire Safety inspections at local businesses.In addition to 18 new firefighters, Kilsheimer touched on hiring new police officers as well.“At the Apopka Police Department we have obtained City Council approval to bring on 10 new police officers in the coming year. I am also proud to say that under Chief McKinley’s Leadership, we have recommitted to the goal of winning accreditation for the Apopka Police Department. It will take several years to achieve this goal, but we are well on the way to seeing it accomplished.”Kilsheimer also heaped praise on grants writer and neighborhood services coordinator, Dr. Shakenya Harris-Jackson.“Under her Leadership, The City has applied for numerous grants since she came on board (in 2015). I am very proud that the city recently was awarded a $625,000 COPS grant that will pay for five of the 10 new police officers we will hire this year. The city also won a $750,000 grant to rebuild the community center at Alonzo Williams Park and two $50,000 grants for playground improvements at other parks in Apopka.”Later today: Part four – Education, and Part Five – The City Commissioners weigh-in on the speech. Mama Mia Reply Also some talk about building a new larger police station with more space for the additional police cars, too, right, at one time? I believe…….that is what I heard once.

Residence in Megara / Tense Architecture Network

The house is a frugal yet decisive answer to the need for a family shelter in the midst of a rather recluse site. It is articulated through the creation of two interior courtyards, while the interconnection of its open and closed spaces is served by two juxtaposed corridors -a glass-roofed and an open-air one. Its courtyards and living spaces remain inscribed in an austere, yet perforated triangle. Two of its trapezoid, inclined sides retain a deliberate protective massiveness while the third, rectilinear one opens up to the magnetic view of the opposite mountain.Save this picture!© Petros PerakisSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Petros PerakisIn the midst of 300 olive trees and in-between the Megara plain and the Gerania Mountains, the residence had to make a choice; although the mountainous volume lies to the north, the residence directs itself there -closely- renouncing the distant plain. Of a triangular plan, it forms a funnel to the mountain. Two courts, one at the southern entrance and one in-between the living spaces and the sleeping quarters organize an open-air diversion to the surrounding wilderness: A triangular diversion. The introvert interpenetration of building mass and void attempts to soothe the fact of the residence’s insertion into an almost recluse landscape. Two differently scaled courts constitute the open spaces of the residence, inscribed in the triangular plan. For the triangular coiling attempted here the simplicity is inherent. Furthermore, the triangle is ‘atrium-like’, namely the Mediterranean.Save this picture!© Petros PerakisSave this picture!© Petros PerakisThe austere shape seems to be ruptured by two void-atriums, or maybe it is right from the start created for them: The landscape calls for them so that the residence opposes itself to it. The creation of the northern court demanded a higher degree of complication; two columns of the triangular section under different directions, a metallic composite one and a hidden, inverted beam at the point of the roof’s bending make part of the structural choreography: the aim is the direct contact of the living spaces with the magnetic mountain. The brownish, transparent color of the exposed concrete shell relates the house to its warm, earthy field. Vertical cuts open up the shell to selected views and direct the sunlight to the interior. The concrete exterior surfaces of the house await for their gradual corrosion by the surrounding plants -coming either out of its welcoming Attica ground or down from its protective elevated garden.Save this picture!© Petros PerakisSave this picture!© Petros PerakisThe project’s sustainability is attained by passive means; its inclined, protective green roof. The vegetation of the roof is adjusted to the Greek climatic conditions, in particular those of Attica; lavender, helichrysum, gauras, drosanthemum, thyme. A self-sustaining, biodiverse ecosystem that allows for the building to gradually become part of the landscape.Save this picture!© Petros PerakisOriginally published May 20, 2015.Project gallerySee allShow lessShenzhen Haixi Primary School / AUBE CONCEPTIONSelected ProjectsLa Casa Pura / Perathoner ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Houses Residence in Megara / Tense Architecture Network Greece Area:  200 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Tense Architecture Network Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” 2014 ArchDaily Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/590859/residence-in-megara-tense-architecture-network Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/590859/residence-in-megara-tense-architecture-network Clipboard Residence in Megara / Tense Architecture NetworkSave this projectSaveResidence in Megara / Tense Architecture Network CopyAbout this officeTense Architecture NetworkOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMies van der Rohe AwardDitiki AttikiIcebergGreecePublished on May 23, 2020Cite: “Residence in Megara / Tense Architecture Network” 22 May 2020.

Clickworkplace.com open charitable fundraising partnerships

first_imgClickworkplace.com open charitable fundraising partnerships Howard Lake | 25 April 2007 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Digital Private sector web search initiative, clickworkplace.com, who have been successful in driving profitability for UK companies through a branded search engine revenue share model, today announced their intentions to extend the offering to charities and non-for-profits as a fundraising mechanism, bringing a unique perspective to search led fundraising, which based on research into the marketplace, they say is much needed.The new charitable search initiative offers more than you’d expect from a free service. Provisioning a personalized, branded search engine for each of their clients, flying the charity’s colours and logo ensures ‘stickiness’ with the brand and the hook; instead of performance based upon unreliable internet traffic it is the employees, donors and benefactors of the charity who will ultimately determine their own success, at the same time as providing advertisers a verifiably employed, ABC1 audience. This model has proven very lucrative amongst their private sector clients, so much so, businesses with just 15-25 members of staff should earn no less than a five figure sum annually and there are no caps or limits, so larger organisations can expect extraordinary returns.“We have been approached by a number of charitable organisations who were concerned that the internet affiliations they had entered were not returning revenues anywhere near the promises often made” Anton Grant, Click Workplace New Business Director tells us. “One of the larger charities in particular had even advertised the service on their site and still had not received a penny for their efforts”“The trouble with other search initiatives is that they service thousands of charities from just one search page, so when clicks and funds are divided, charities receive far less than expected or promised. The other concern is that often there is no transparency with this model. It’s very well announcing that the site will attract X thousand visitors to perform Y thousand searches on a charity’s behalf, but if there is no way to track this activity on a one-to-one basis or view your revenues in real time, how can anyone be sure that these promises are met, or even that any activity is taking place at all?”Click Workplace tell us that they have been approached by disgruntled charities through recommendations from the private sector. “Our success in the private sector means that we can bring a very different approach from what is currently in the marketplace to charitable companies. Our offering is fundamentally a B2B offering which will now allow us to form more of a fundraising partnership with our clients, commercial or charitable”The service, including design, implementation, hosting and bandwidth, is free to every business who can guarantee at least 15 internet users, making them an ideal solution for most businesses and charities alike. An example of the search page can be viewed at www.clickworkplace.com/companydemo.When asked how the charitable search engine market needs to evolve, Lee Thomas, founder and MD of Clickworkplace.com said “Whilst the emphasis for all our partners is obviously to capitalise from something that happens on a daily basis; but those involved in the search engine sector have an obligation to ensure that the advertisers search marketing ROI is enhanced through distribution channels such as Click Workplace; which is something that until now in my opinion has been missing in the charitable search sector. Our offering can significantly benefit all three groups: consumers, advertisers and charities.”The company says they can have any site ready within 3-5 days, professionally designed with the charities corporate logo and customised search criteria. They urge charities to apply as soon as possible at www.clickworkplace.com/applynow.asp whether involved in other search initiatives or not, to benefit from as much activity as possible.———-ENDS———–———-CONTACT———Anton GrantBusiness Development Director | ClickWorkplaceE: [email protected]: www.clickworkplace.comClick Workplace, Angmering, West Sussex, BN16 4GX About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

It is envisaged that the project will continue for decades.The study will collect information from 100,000 individuals, across 40,000 households from across the UK. It will assist with the understanding of the long term effects of social and economic change, and will provide tools to study the impact of policy interventions on the well being of the UK population.Professor Ian Diamond, Chief Executive of the ESRC, said: “The study will benefit policy researchers and policy makers in the UK, and researchers and research users in a wide range of academic and non-academic environments around the world.”‘Understanding Society’ will be based at and led by the Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER) at the University of Essex, together with colleagues from the University of Warwick and the Institute of Education.

KORUS Agreement a Relief to Agriculture

first_img SHARE Agriculture was ‘left out’ of the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement renegotiation effort, a relief to the sector. For many in agriculture, there was more to lose than gain in the renegotiation effort. The U.S. is the largest supplier of beef to Korea and the second largest pork supplier. Data from the U.S. Meat Export Federation shows red meat exports to Korea set a record last year of $1.7 billion, up 19 percent from the prior year and up 69 percent from 2012.USMEF spokesperson Joe Schuele told Meat industry publication, Meatingplace, the revised KORUS is “excellent news” for U.S. beef and pork because it ensures the U.S. “will continue to be able to serve the growing South Korean market.” South Korea is also a top-five importer of U.S. corn, buying more than 5.3 million metric tons in the last marketing year, which is more than 200 million bushels. Under the new agreement, South Korea will limit its steel exports to the U.S. and allow more imports of U.S. autos. The U.S. agreed to exempt South Korea from Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs.

Fr Gabriel was in the Franciscan friary in Rossnowlagh but Mr Crawford had left the order and he bought Rose Cottage.As a member of the Franciscans with a vow of poverty, Fr Gabriel could not own property but Mr Crawford said they were in a sexual relationship and it was the intention that the house would be in both their names.He said the agreement was that both would leave religious life.Mr Crawford left believing that Fr Gabriel would take the next step but he never did, he said.Fr Gabriel told the court that he never informed Mr Crawford that he was going to leave the priesthood.He said he left the Franciscans and moved to Ballina as a diocesan priest, but he would travel back to Rose Cottage once or twice a week until the relationship broke up.The two men split up on St Stephen’s Day 2002 with Fr Gabriel leaving the house claiming that Mr Crawford’s family was interfering.Mr Crawford said he tried to patch things up. He still loved Fr Gabriel and asked him to come back but he did not.Fr Gabriel told Judge Keenan Johnson that after the relationship ended they agreed to have the house valued, sell it and split the proceeds 50:50. But Mr Crawford said this was not agreed.He told the court that he made all the mortgage repayments apart from a small sum.Mr Crawford rejected claims by Fr Gabriel that he regularly repaid the loan, paid bills, bought groceries and furniture, and was entitled to half ownership of the house.Judge Keenan Johnson will rule in the case tomorrow.
