She has frequently assisted Bishop J. Jon Bruno and Bishops Suffragan Diane Jardine Bruce and Mary Glasspool with pastoral visits to congregations.“I feel blessed to be called to St James-in-the-City with its rich diversity, its compassionate outreach, its commitment to education, and its excellence in liturgy,” Roskam told The Episcopal News. “I’m so looking forward to this new phase of our ministry together to the glory of God.”Roskam, a native New Yorker, graduated as a theatre major from Middlebury College in 1965, and worked as an actress and producer in New York for 16 years, until she began her studies at General Seminary in 1980, graduating cum laude in 1984. She is one of three bishops honored by the establishment of the F. A. R. and Wide Scholarship to enable a General Seminary student to spend six weeks in a mission setting somewhere in the Anglican Communion.Roskam served as bishop suffragan in New York from January 1996  until January 1, 2012. She was a member of the Anglican Consultative Council for nine of those years and on Executive Council for a six-year term.“Through the interplay of these three positions, the world of global mission was opened to me in the most unexpected and enriching way” she wrote. “Several global partnerships grew out of relationships that held firm in “the bonds of affection” even through the troubles.”Roskam helped to found Carpenter’s Kids, a partnership between the Diocese of New York and the Diocese of Central Tanganyika, and now including other dioceses, enables over 7,000 AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children to go to school and have a nutritious breakfast every school day.She was also a founder of The Global Women’s Fund to support the education of Anglican women, with priority given to those entering seminary, a program that “now has terrific success stories to tell about women, both lay and ordained, in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, The Philippines, Haiti and Honduras.,” Roskam writes. “I am so proud of those endeavors and have such affection for the dear friends who labored with me in those particular vineyards, the energetic, entrepreneurial Bishop Mdimi Mhogolo of the Diocese of Central Tanganyika (who sadly died this past May), and Canon Jolly Babirukamu of Uganda, a fellow member of the ACC whose life has been devoted to the empowerment of women in Africa.”Education  was a strong theme for her episcopate. “We began an initiative called All Our Children, in support of public education. We challenged every congregation to become involved with their local public school and every individual Episcopalian to give 40 hours a year in direct service or advocacy or teacher support.”Roskam has been an associate of the Society of St. John the Evangelist since 1981. “Now I spend most of my time with my family, especially my husband of 47 years and our 5 year old grandson.

Nathan Hines hangs onto two Ulster players

first_imgWednesday Jan 25, 2012 Nathan Hines hangs onto two Ulster players Clermont Auvergne will face Saracens in the quarter finals of the Heineken Cup following their hard fought 19-15 win over Ulster on Saturday. Below is a look at a unique bit of foul play that infuriated Ulster fans. In recent times we’ve featured incidents where holding onto a player results in a retaliation in the form of someone lashing out, and in some cases even, a punch and red card.Usually it’s just a jersey or arm tugging that prevents someone from getting to the next phase of play, but in the case of Nathan Hines on the weekend, he managed to take out two players at once.Unfortunately for Clermont his indiscretion cost them a try as he held onto not only Stephen Ferris, but Pedrie Wanneburg as well. Both players did well to not take a swing at him, although shortly after Lee Byrne crossed for what would have been a try, a scuffle broke out with multiple players.Some would have liked to have seen Hines yellow carded for such a cynical piece of gamesmanship, but referee Dave Pearson and his assistant decided that a penalty was sufficient punishment.Many of you wanted to see the incident again, so have a look and let us know in the comments what you think of the way it was handled by the players involved and the officials.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

The Sawmill House uses large reclaimed one tonne blocks of reclaimed concrete which anchor it into the landscape and a dynamic active building envelope to regulate the internal environment. The dwelling is a hand crafted upgrade from an existing rather rustic, bohemian abode, befitting a regionally based sculptor.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingConceptual framework.Approach.Leveraging our client’s skill set was a priority. We facilitated this with a rough plan a year prior to the start of construction, then slowly developed the design whilst physically working with the client on-site for the duration of the build. This design/build approach allowed us to move away from conventional solutions and investigate highly bespoke yet cost effective alternatives. Large sections of the roof and facade could be mechanised, entire walls of glass could pivot, courtyards could be added, custom furniture, joinery and hardware could be design and manufactured on-site in realtime.  The knowledge gained through a hands on approach has been incredibly valuable to the development of our young practice.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe use of the reclaimed concrete blocks is an experiment in harnessing the thousands of tonnes of concrete that goes to waste each year. Each block is a by-product of excess concrete left in trucks from one or more projects in the region, poured into rough steel troughs. We have continued to investigate leveraging industrial by-products through a design studio we run at RMIT University and have pushed the concept to include the spacial and procedural by-product elements of practice.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingWhat contribution does the design make to the lives of the inhabitants?As explained by the client:“The Sawmill House hosts our young family of three, who can now live comfortably and safely within the industrial zone. Large operable veranda, screens and doors transform the space to suit various climatic and social conditions, which is crucial to our family who must operate in a diverse and sometimes extreme climate, and direct our home through a spectrum of private retreat to communal hub. Importantly, the civic nature of the design allows the building to function as a design office with a fantastic aspect”.Relationship of the built form to the context of the project.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingContext.Each of the one-tonne concrete blocks that form the perimeter of the dwelling’s walls has a story- a bridge, a footpath, a home; and create a patchwork of colour and texture across the facades.  This texture grounds the building in the site, as the layers of colour mimic the sedimentary layers of earth still exposed from the site’s former life as a gold mine before becoming the local sawmill. The untreated rough sawn macrocarpa screens reference the site’s recent history and over time as they pale to grey will settle the building into its perch on the quarry’s edge.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingSustainability.Comprised of 270 one-tonne concrete blocks, the project explores the possibility of positively leveraging the thousands of tonnes of concrete that go to waste each year in the building industry.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingThe concrete in each block is the by-product of the many residential slabs poured in the vicinity and were produced by the local concrete yard as a method of storing waste. In celebration of this patchwork of waste, blocks were kept raw and exposed as much as possible. While perhaps not a holistic answer, it is hoped that this approach creates a house that contributes to a broader conversation surrounding concrete reuse and encourages investment and investigation into this CO2 intensive assets.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ben HoskingThe house has a highly operable envelope that takes advantage of the local breeze that travels up the valley towards the house, passively cooling in the summer months with crossflow ventilation. In the cooler months sun penetration is maximised by rolling back a 14 metre section of openable roof over the deck, allowing the sun to passively heat the dwelling for most of the year.Save this picture!© Ben HoskingOriginally published on August 17, 2015. Project gallerySee allShow lessEmanuel Christ and Christoph Gantenbein from Christ & Gantenbein to Curate Uzbekista…Architecture NewsFelixx and Orange Design New Housing for an Artificial Island in AmsterdamArchitecture News Share Houseslast_img read more

Pasadena Restaurant Indoor Dining, Theaters, Gyms Cleared to Reopen Once County Enters ‘Red’ Tier

Gavin Newsom announced on Wednesday that the state was on the verge of meeting its goal of vaccinating 2 million people statewide in at-risk communities, which would allow Los Angeles County and others to accelerate their move into the less-restrictive category.State policy allows for increased activity including limited indoor dining, movie theater screenings, gym operation and museum tours, as well as the reopening of schools through 12th grade. Health officials at both the city and county level announced Thursday that they would adjust local public health policies to allow activities permitted under state guidelines.But while Newsom previously said the shift may occur as early as Friday, Pasadena and L.A. County public health officials said Thursday that the move to the “red” tier would likely occur sometime between Monday and Wednesday.Under the new guidelines, which will take effect once the state confirms the county has entered “red” tier status, indoor dining is permitted at a capacity of up to 25%, along with museums, aquariums and zoos. Masks and other requirements, including that dining tables being spaces 8 feet apart or more, are also mandated.Movie theaters will be permitted to host showings with audiences limited to 25% capacity and only with reserved seating to ensure social distancing.Gyms, dance studios, fitness centers and similar businesses will be permitted to operate indoors at 10% capacity.Retail stores, malls and personal care services will be permitted to expand capacity to 50%. with masking required at all times and for all services.Schools, which are currently only permitted to resume in-person instruction for grades 6 and below, will be permitted to reopen in-person classes through high school.But as restrictions lift, the city’s efforts to enforce remaining COVID-19 protocols will only increase, Derderian said.While it was hoped the new activity would give a much-needed boost to the local economy, officials did not want to see the virus take hold again.“We still will adhere to strict COVID protocols, both for customers and employees,” according to Derderian. “We need everybody to still follow the regulations, otherwise, it’s one step forward and two steps back.”Pasadena reported eight new COVID-19 infections and five additional deaths on Thursday, according to city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian.Several of the deaths were believed to have resulted from infections contracted during holiday gatherings, she said.All but one of the eight new infected patients detected Thursday were under 50 years old, Derderian added.In total, Pasadena health officials had recorded 11,011 confirmed COVID-19 infections and 327 fatalities Over the prior week, an average of seven new infections per day were reported.Huntington Hospital reported treating 30 COVID-19 patients on Thursday, with eight of them in intensive care units.At the county level, authorities announced 1,378 new infections and 101 additional deaths, bringing the totals in L.A. County to 1,208,024 known cases of the virus and 22,304 fatalities.The L.A. County Department of Public Health reported 1,056 COVID-19 patients hospitalized across the county on Thursday, with 30% of them being treated in ICUs.There are 1,056 people with COVID-19 currently hospitalized and 30% of these people are in the ICU. Testing results are available for nearly 5,927,000 individuals with 19% of people testing positive. Today’s daily test positivity rate is 2.1%.L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer again expressed condolences to those mourning a family member or loved one lost to COVID-19.“To the families and friends mourning the loss of a loved one to COVID-19, we wish you healing and peace,” she said.“We plan to move into the red tier very soon, and that allows for more re-openings and permitted activities in L.A. County. This milestone is the result of businesses and individuals working together and doing their part to prevent COVID-19 from spreading,” Ferrer said.“It will be up to everyone, businesses and residents, to continue driving down transmission and to follow safety directives closely to keep everyone as safe as possible by preventing increases in cases,” she added. “When even relatively small numbers of businesses and individuals fail to adhere to the safety precautions, many others experience tragic consequences.”The California Department of Public Health reported 3,184 new infections and 270 additional deaths on Thursday, raising the statewide tallies to 3,516,862 COVID-19 cases and 54,891 fatalities.The statewide average positivity rate over the prior week was recorded at 2.4%, while the 14-day average stood at 2.3%.As of Thursday, L.A. County represented 34% of California COVID-19 infections and 41% of the state’s deaths.

Limerick mother questions why son not on prison suicide watch

first_imgSurgeries and clinic cancellations extended Linkedin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Mother of eleven year old boy stabbed to death, says she has been “let down by the justice system” after application to name son… Email Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April center_img by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up THE mother of a convicted gang rapist found hanging in his cell has questioned why her son was not on suicide watch at the time of his death.Dean Barry (24) of Garryglass Avenue, Ballinacurra Weston, Limerick was found dead in his cell by prison officers after his brother and another inmate left for daily exercise after a 23-hour lockdown at Limerick Prison.At the inquest into his death, Valerie Barry questioned why her son was not on suicide watch as his “head wasn’t right over his past”. He was on remand at the prison on charges of setting fire to his home while his mother and girlfriend were inside the building.He was one of four Limerick teenagers who gang-raped the woman in a car park at Cratloe Woods and had served five years of a nine year prison sentence after he was convicted at the Central Criminal Court in January 2004.The court was told that the woman was dragged into the car and the gang took turns raping her while they threatened to burn the car with her boyfriend inside if she resisted.After his release, Dean Barry was before the courts on a number of occasions.At Limerick Coroners Court on Wednesday, Coroner Anthony Casey was told that on January 21, 2012, Dean’s brother Mark and another inmate opted to leave their cell on the top floor of Limerick Prison for exercise in the yard after their 23 hour lockdown.However, Dean told officers that he wanted to stay in the cell to play his PlayStation. It was previously reported that he left a note saying he was sorry for his past.Prison officers gave evidence of opening the cell shortly after 12:35pm when they found Dean Barry hanging from the bunk in his cell.Prison nursing officers and emergency staff tried to revive him and medical staff noted no change in his vital signs after 30 minutes of emergency treatment, the inquest heard.Evidence was also given by Roxboro Road based Garda Jill Geary, and prison officers and emergency medical personnel who attended the scene.His was removed from the cell and he was later pronounced dead at the then Mid Western Regional Hospital.Deputy State Pathologist Dr Margaret Bolster, who performed an autopsy at the hospital the following day, said death was caused by asphyxiation as a result of suspension from a ligature.Dr Bolster said that there were no other signs of internal trauma, however she did note a number of scars to Dean Barry’s arms and wrists.A note and personal items were returned to the family.Addressing the inquest, Mark Barry asked prison officers why bed fixings had been changed from wooden to metal. These, he claimed, were what his brother was able to hang himself from.After thanking the officers at Limerick Prison and the medical staff who tried to revive her son, Valerie Barry questioned why he was not on suicide watch.“Although he was in a cell with his brother, he should have been on suicide watch – his head wasn’t right over his past. He did a long time in prison,” she added.The inquest heard that Dean Barry had been attending a psychiatrist and had a consultation before his death but no details of this visit were given to the inquest.Prison staff confirmed he was not on suicide watch.The jury returned an open verdict in accordance with medical evidence.

$1.5 Trillion Worth of U.S. Homes Threatened by Wildfires

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Journal, Market Studies, News Previous: Arch MI Completes Integration with Cloudvirga Platform Next: Reverse Mortgage Volume Hits Its Highest Point Since 2011 Subscribe According to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, last year’s California wildfire season was the most destructive on record, with over 9,000 fires burning more than a million acres in 2017. Moreover, some of those fires swept through areas populated by some of the nation’s most expensive real estate. Now Redfin has taken a look at what the 2018 fire season may be like, and the numbers are shocking, with Redfin finding an estimated $1.5 trillion worth of homes projected to be at risk from wildfires in the year to come—around 7.7 percent of the United States’ total housing value.To make matters worse, wildfires have been trending toward being more widespread and damaging in recent years, with 9.8 million acres of land burned by wildfires nationwide in 2017, compared to 5.4 million acres in 2016. However, Redfin found real estate agents in the affected areas reporting that homebuyers weren’t hesitating to look for homes in these regions once the immediate disasters were over.“People who are still in shock from losing their homes and possessions from the October fires are greeting one another at open houses while comparing notes on the hotels or rentals where they are temporary living,” said Redfin Santa Rosa agent Starling Scholz. “People view wildfire risk as a price of living in California that’s well worth the rewards: beautiful weather, nature and well-paying jobs.”Redfin ranked the Top 10 U.S. Counties for Fire Risk, ranked according to the estimated total value of homes at risk in the respective areas. Redfin’s blog post explains that “To be considered, there had to have been at least five major fires recorded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in the county since 1960.”California dominates the list, both because the state has seen regular outbreaks of wildfires for years, and because those fires often hit high-dollar real estate. The Top 10 U.S. Counties for Fire Risk include:Los Angeles County, California (estimated total value of homes in the county: $918.1 billion, with nearly 1.5 million homes at risk)Orange County, California ($391.5 billion estimated total value; 581,506 homes at risk)Santa Clara County, California ($327.9 billion estimated total value; 354,255 homes at risk)San Diego County, California ($316.5 billion estimated total value; 581,635 homes at risk)Harris County, Texas ($185.6 billion estimated total value; 837,912 homes at risk)Riverside County, California ($140.8 billion estimated total value; 454,924 homes at risk)San Bernardino County, California ($106.1 billion estimated total value; 365,576 homes at risk)Dallas County, Texas ($103.7 billion estimated total value; 452,284 homes at risk)Ventura County, California ($93.4 billion estimated total value; 170,877 homes at risk)Clark County, Nevada ($88.6 billion estimated total value; 384,329 homes at risk)Redfin Chief Economist Nela Richardson explains, “Despite strong demand and severe inventory shortages, California has built the fewest number of homes per new resident of any state, with just one unit for every four new residents, compared to one new unit for every 1.8 new residents nationally. When people whose homes just burned down are jumping back into bidding wars to buy new homes in the same area, you know wildfires alone won’t cool these competitive markets. However, California’s chronic lack of homes and eroding affordability make recovering from a natural disaster much more challenging than in states like Texas with more adequate housing supply.“You can read Redfin’s full 2018 wildfire analysis by clicking here.
