Griffith has been named the first non-clerical executive director of Episcopal Community Services, Philadelphia, Pa. Griffith has left his position as CEO of Modern Group Ltd. headquartered in Bristol, Pa., and joined the Rev. John Midwood, retiring ECS executive director, for an unusual two-month overlap of leadership.A seamless transition in leadership is especially important as the social services agency continues to embrace new models of effective service delivery and outcome measurement. With less stable government funding and increasing competition for foundation grants, “ECS recognizes that it’s no longer just about ‘doing good work,’ it’s also about achieving measurable outcomes,” said Miriam Kepner, chair of ECS’ Board of Trustees..Noting that ECS is a model and leader in its field, Griffith commented, “Our future lies not in being a safety net, but in continuing to provide the opportunity and programs that lift people in need up and that offer a thoughtful path of permanent change in their lives. This is our clarion call to service. What I have learned we call ‘ECSness.’”A lifelong Episcopalian, Griffith said his faith is central to his decision to leave the corporate world to guide ECS, feeling a deep call to service and to the work of the agency. Previous work with the church includes serving as the former senior warden, finance and stewardship chair at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury, Pa.“Mr. Griffith’s experience in management, technology and fundraising will be invaluable as we continue to meet challenges head-on — and build on the forward-thinking initiatives of the Rev. Midwood,” emphasized Kepner. With extensive service on for-profit and non-profit boards, Griffith currently is board chair of the Delaware Valley Floral Group, Sewell, N.J.; vice chairman of the Philadelphia World Affairs Council; and chairman of the McEwen Family Scholarship Trust. He also is a director of the J.J. Haines Company in Baltimore, the Hepatitis B Foundation and the Griffith Family Foundation, and serves as a member of IBM’s Midmarket Advisory Council. A former trustee of Westminster School in Simsbury, Conn., he was secretary of its board and chairman of its Development and Marketing Committee, which raised over $90 million in two capital campaigns during his tenure.Griffith is a frequent speaker to industrial, academic and nonprofit organizations on technology, social media, leadership, development and work/life balance. He has lectured at Leadership Inc. in Philadelphia and at University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and at Rutgers University. He is the author of several articles on compensation practices and policy.He joined Modern in 1992 after working as an executive with IBM, ROLM and MCI. Starting with IBM as a software engineer, he served as a branch manager, regional manager, administrative assistant to the president and director of marketing. At MCI he was vice president of marketing for the National Accounts Division. He graduated with honors from Kenyon College with a B.A. in history and economics.Episcopal Community Services is a high-performing, learning organization that is embracing new models of effective delivery and outcome measurement amid a changing, unpredictable social service environment. As a result, ECS is leading the way in empowering and transforming the lives of Philadelphia’s most vulnerable children, youth, families and seniors through a broad range of educational and social service programs. One of the most trusted names in the field since 1870, ECS continues to affirm human dignity and promote social justice every hour of every day.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Houston, Texas] How to be the church in the world as it is today was the focus of a wide-ranging Nov. 15 discussion between Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and other participants in the Episcopal Church’s International Black Clergy Conference.Curry acknowledged that the church and society face many challenges but, he said, the church has a role to play, beginning with concrete actions that show the world its dedication to reconciliation.In response to a question about how the church should approach the issue of reparations to Native Americans, African-Americans and Japanese Americans, Curry described a path for how the church might help U.S. society address its collective past.That path is about “trying to move in a direction where the work that leads to reconciliation is linked to repentance and that repentance is linked to genuine actions that both, on the one hand, acknowledge the past and then seek to do something to remedy it.”The Rev. John Carlton Hayden of Washington, D.C., recalls a moment when both he and Presiding Bishop Michael Curry were young priests. Hayden spoke during a Nov. 15 open mic session during the evening prior to the start of the Nov. 16-19 Episcopal Church International Black Clergy Conference in Houston, Texas. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceCurry suggested that the church can help to lead the way toward “creating a new future” beyond what he called the painful part of America’s history. Some dioceses have been addressing their past and are taking the challenge seriously, he said, adding that ignoring the hurts of the past only means the pain will rise up in other ways.For example, he said, “part of the culture is ramping up to create a bad history for Latino Americans.”“We have to stop that,” he said. “We’ve got to name it and then show a way forward. We’re in an environment now where that’s going to be all the more important.”When the Rev. Gayle Fisher-Stewart, assistant rector at Calvary Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. asked Curry how to stop it, he asked, “what do you think?”“I don’t think we have anything to lose by speaking the truth of what is,” she replied. “We’re going to be damned if we do and damned if we don’t” so Episcopalians, who are in a good place to start this work, need to “take the cross and follow it wherever we need to go.”The Rev. Ronald Spann, assisting priest at Christ Church in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, said that the church ought to find its allies who will join in the work needed to “pull us out of the toxicity” that comes with divisions.“We have a fresh opportunity to pick up where Martin Luther King left off,” he said.The Rev. Kimberly Lucas, rector of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., said she recently told her congregation that the Episcopal Church spent too much time patting itself on the back about its progressive nature while “ignoring the demons that were stirring in our midst.”The Rev. Paula Clark, canon for clergy development and multicultural ministries in the Diocese of Washington, speaks about the response to a Nov. 12-13 incident of vandalism at Church of Our Saviour in Silver Spring, Maryland. She made her remarks during an evening discussion prior to the start of the Nov. 16-19 Episcopal Church International Black Clergy Conference in Houston, Texas. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service“I challenged them to figure out ways in which we might stop disparaging our rural brothers and sisters, that we might stop disparaging our less-educated brothers and sisters,” she said.Instead, she challenged parishioners to “figure out ways to be Jesus for them” and “support our white brothers and sisters of goodwill in doing the work that only they can do” and reflect how society strives to preserve “the division between those who are white and suffering and everybody else of color – to keep those people on opposite sides of everything, so much so that those people would vote against their own interests.”Curry urged the participants to remember a basic principle of community organizing that stresses building one-on-one relationships out of which will emerge an agenda for what common issues and concerns need to be addressed.“It may be that some of the most radical stuff that we can do in this cultural context is to create the context for real relationships between people who are profoundly different,” he said, noting that sociologists say America is becoming more and more “balkanized, fragmented and segregated.”“The truth is American society – the democratic experiment – actually depends on us building networks of real human relationships with people who are unlike us, and that is a real challenge,” he said.Curry cautioned that while some people might think evangelism has nothing to do with the things that the group spent just over an hour talking about, it in fact has everything to do with it because “evangelism is not about getting more people like us to be us.” Evangelism is, instead, about helping the church to create and shape a loving and profoundly diverse community of God as a witness to the world, he said, and then helping the world look like that, too.– The Rev.

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Reply 2 COMMENTS Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Please enter your comment! Reply Also, there are people who deny the Holocaust, and deny that genocide continues in our world today. It is very frightening that there are people who would commit genocide, and try to eliminate a whole race of people, in atrocious violent acts, whether because of race, religion, nationalities, or ethic origins. We, the people, need to be keenly aware of what is taking place in our world, rather than blindly go about our daily existence. Commissioner-Elect Kyle BeckerWith threats of violence, fear of secession and national dissolution, Congress met in February of 1801 to resolve the election of 1800. With Aaron Burr and Thomas Jefferson tied in Electoral College votes, the decision rested with the House of Representatives.The political parties of the day – the Federalists and the Republicans, had brought the nation to the verge of chaos, utter destruction and possible extinction with the campaigns they had waged against their opponents, but now they would be called upon to mediate a political solution.Federalists and Republicans argued over how to implement a relatively new document called the Federal Constitution and resolve the issue. Both parties did, however, agree to the fact that the solution was within the framework of the Constitution.Ultimately through politics and negotiation, Jefferson was chosen as the third President of the United States, succeeding John Adams.Commissioner-Elect Doug BanksonIn his inaugural address, Jefferson sought to alleviate national fears by making his now famous unifying declaration:“We are all republicans, we are all federalists. But every difference of opinion is not a difference in principle. We are called by different names, but are brethren of the same principle. We are all republicans. We are all federalists.”It was called the revolution of 1800, and it was the first time in history that a peaceful transition of power took place among rival groups.It has been 216 years since Jefferson, Adams and Burr fought it out for office, but every two years America has its own peaceful revolutions in order to form a more perfect union.They’re called elections.Sometimes it’s for President, sometimes for the Senate or House of Representatives, and sometimes its in local elections for city commission seats in a town called Apopka.We fight hard for our candidates. We know them. We like them. We trust them. But at the end of the election the votes are counted and they win or lose.And then it is time for communities, states and nations to come together in principle and support our leaders.This afternoon two men – Doug Bankson and Kyle Becker will take the oath of office and be sworn-in as City Commissioners of Apopka at the Apopka Community Center/VFW. The ceremony starts at noon.Thomas Jefferson stood like granite through political attacks.Both Bankson and Becker ran the gauntlet that is a campaign cycle. They were called names on Facebook like “good old boy” and “sparky”, but take heart Commissioners-elect; Jefferson was called a few names too.Opponents of the third President called him an atheist who advocated for the legalization of murder, robbery and prostitution. So paralyzed by the criticism, Jefferson cut the national debt 33%, closed a deal with the French for the Louisiana Territory and sent two men, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, on an expedition that opened the west to exploration and settlement. Oh, and he was re-elected overwhelmingly in 1804.A few years later, they carved his likeness into a granite formation in the Black Hills of South Dakota called Mount Rushmore.Stay with The Apopka Voice for full coverage of the Oath of Office Ceremony.

Politics as usual. People need to accept our history, whether good or bad. It is wrong to try to rewrite history, and remove historical artifacts from the past. That was the way it was then in those days, and we need to accept our nation’s past, and learn from the wrongs, and move forward, but not try to erase the facts of the way our history went, and by removing old memorials, statues, flags, etc. of the past.

The story of BLNT family house began in 2015. A young family with two kids decided to move to Vrakuňa neighbourhood located on the edge of Slovak capital – Bratislava. As it is typical for this location, the site is absolutely flat and the surrounding environment is still carrying many historical connotations to its original rural context. Save this picture!© Peter ČintalanSave this picture!First floor planSave this picture!© Peter ČintalanInitially after seeing the clean plot we started to organize it in a way it would benefit the clients as much as possible. Our main goal was to create a compact house with a simple volume, which is not going to stick out of the surroundings. This simple volume placed in the front of the site cuts only a reasonable portion of the garden and provides privacy from the street. The first floor includes an open space living-room united with the kitchen, guest bedroom and other functional elements. This whole semi-public living space opens up to the garden with a swimming pool. On the second floor we can find kids’ bedrooms and a private master bedroom.Save this picture!© Peter ČintalanThe exterior of BLNT house reflects typical local materials used on structures around for a long time. We chose white structured plaster, wooden cladding, and white bricks as a vocabulary of design language. Perforated brick walls are used as an artistic detail here, as well as a functional element providing shading and privacy with the option to look through. In the end the clients got a house with contemporary expression and a touch of local tradition which helps it blend to the already built-up area of Bratislava.Save this picture!© Peter ČintalanProject gallerySee allShow lessMetronome French Pavilion Coming to London Design Biennale 2020Architecture NewsHay Roofs Explored Through 13 Vietnamese Restaurant ProjectsArticles Share Photographs Slovakia “COPY” Architects: AT26 architects Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/933646/blnt-house-at26-architecture-and-design Clipboard Projects 2018 CopyAbout this officeAT26 architectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookVrakuňaSlovakiaPublished on February 13, 2020Cite: “BLNT house / AT26 architects” 13 Feb 2020.

It is becoming a concern of Indiana corn growers, and in the newest HAT video you can see why. Agronomist Bill Mullen found disease in a Grant County corn field, right near Marion, and it raises the question of how long plants in that field will be able to stand.“We’re seeing some of these plants that are showing this copper type of color and this is basically anthracnose leaf blight. It came in late this year and started at the bottom and worked its way up. There are spores on these leaves that later on in the season will go ahead and attach themselves to the stalk, work itself into the stalk. From anthracnose leaf blight, we’ll have anthracnose stalk rot.”He says you won’t want those plants standing until late October when they’ll fall to the ground and you will lose ears. So Mullen’s advice is walk fields now to get a good idea of what issues might dictate when you harvest.“Some of these fields have some insect issues, corn borer and corn earworm,” he said. “We’ve got anthracnose leaf blight that’s going to anthracnose stalk rot. The other thing is that some of these plants are just hanging on. Some have very good plant health. These are factors that you need to keep in mind when you’re out walking your fields, because the goal right now the way this year is, try to save every ear that we can. Get more in the tank of that combine than laying out in the field.”See the anthracnose, varying yields in corn fields based on their planting date, and a pretty good looking soybean field, all with Mullen’s observations, in the HAT video.

USDA Purchasing $50 Million of Milk

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Purchasing $50 Million of Milk Previous articleNew Tool from Purdue Helps Producers Mitigate RiskNext articleLawrence County Farmers Win Rural Preservation Award Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 15, 2018 SHARE The Department of Agriculture this week announced it will purchase $50 million worth of fluid milk to distribute to U.S. food banks. USDA said it will authorize the expenditure of $50 million in Section 32 funds to purchase a range of consumer-friendly milk varieties, including whole, 2 percent, 1 percent and skim. The agency will purchase the milk from approved vendors, and distribute the product, an estimated 12-15 million gallons, depending on the prices agreed to by USDA and its suppliers, to food assistance organizations such as Feeding America.The action, which is similar to product purchases as part of aid packages to farmers, is not part of the trade aid package announced by USDA last month. USDA has yet to release any details about that effort, but the $12 billion budget for that assistance, coming from Section 5 of USDA’s spending authority, is distinct from the Section 32 funds being used for this new milk purchase program. The National Milk Producers Federation applauded the announcement, noting that milk is in high demand at food banks.Source: NAFB News Service USDA Purchasing $50 Million of Milklast_img read more

Housing Market Has Made ‘Good Enough’ Progress to Buy Now, Analyst Says

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily  Print This Post Subscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago April 28, 2015 1,412 Views The CEO of the largest single private homeowner in the U.S. said that buying a home now is a “good investment” and that the recent gains the housing market has made are “good enough” for a buyer to invest in a home during a recent interview with CNBC.Speaking from the Milken Institute Conference in Los Angeles, Blackstone Mortgage Trust CEO Steve Schwarzman told CNBC on Monday that the housing market has been “coming back for quite some time” even though inventory is low and prices have not increased as much. For example, Black Knight Financial Services reported earlier this week a year-over-year median price gain of 4.6 percent for single-family homes in February.”We’re finding that that market continues to go up for the value of houses, although not at the same rate as it did, obviously, off the bottom,” Schwarzman said.Blackstone is the largest single private owner of residential homes in the U.S. with approximately 47,000 homes and about $90 billion in real estate assets. Schwarzman said his company is putting money into the housing market, although not as much as it was during the height of the financial crisis.”We’re only building about half of the houses we did at the top of the last cycle,” Schwarzman said. “People need to be in houses as immigration continues in the United States.”Schwarzman’s assessment of the housing market was similar to that of Tim Rood, chairman of the Washington, D.C.-based business advisory firm The Collingwood Group, who said in a recent interview on Westwood One Radio Network that now was a good time to invest in a home because of low interest rates and anticipated home value appreciation.”The leveraged return if you put down 10 percent on a house, the trajectory of appreciation lately is you’re going to get your money back inside of a year and then after that 5 to 10 percent appreciation rates,” Rood said. “It’s phenomenal.”The topic of the housing market and whether or not now is a good time to buy will be covered more in depth at the 2015 Five Star Conference and Expo, which will be September 16 through 18 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.Editor’s note: The Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News and DSNews.com.
