Tech & innovation Gamban partners with Lloyds Banking Group 17th February 2020 | By Daniel O’Boyle Gambling self-exclusion software provider Gamban have partnered with Lloyds Banking Group – owner of British high street banks Halifax, Lloyds and Bank of Scotland – that will allow customers access to its site blocking software. Gambling self-exclusion software provider Gamban have partnered with Lloyds Banking Group – owner of British high street banks Halifax, Lloyds and Bank of Scotland – that will allow customers access to its site blocking software.Through the partnership, customers of any Lloyds Banking Group app can use Gamban to exclude themselves from gambling websites free of charge.“We know that gambling-related harm can have serious and long term impacts on our customers and we are committed to making sure they can easily access a wide range of support,” Elyn Corfield, managing director for consumer finance at Lloyds said.This comes in addition to the Gambling Transaction Freeze feature Lloyds Banking Group have already introduced, which allow customers to block all gambling-related payments.“In addition to our card controls that allow the freezing of gambling transactions we are delighted to have developed a pilot with Gamban offering our customers three months free access to their software, providing another level of protection,” Corfield said.Jack Symons, founder of Gamban, said he was pleased to see banks take action against gambling-related harm.“It’s very positive to see forward-thinking banking institutions such as Lloyds Banking Group rise to the challenge of protecting vulnerable customers from gambling addiction through barriers such as spend control and collaboration with market-leading gambling-blocking technology, Gamban,” Symons said.Several British banks have made moves to limit introduce gambling controls recently, as a cross-sector approach to gambling-related harm has become more prevalent. Starling Bank launched gambling blocks in June 2018, with Monzo following later in the year and Barclays as the first high street institution in December 2018.

Church of England considers changes to baptism service Considers dropping language of ‘sin and the devil’ Rector Washington, DC Rector Hopkinsville, KY Submit a Press Release Father Mike Waverly-Shank says: January 9, 2014 at 5:45 pm I concur with the sentiments expressed by Bishop Nazir-Ali. The solution is for the church, be it priests or laity, to educate those of “low literacy” (as Threlfall-Holmes put it) on what baptism means, what repentance means, and what sin means. These are very accessible and knowable terms that people of all social classes and literacy levels have been able to grasp for centuries. All it takes is priests who are willing to take 5 minutes to explain the terms before the service begins. Certainly, especially in the age of the internet, most people can get spooled up on the terms before or after they attend a church service. Tom Neal says: Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK January 12, 2014 at 7:46 am ” The solution is for the church, be it priests or laity, to educate those of “low literacy” (as Threlfall-Holmes put it) on what baptism means, what repentance means, and what sin means.”This, followed by “Certainly, especially in the age of the internet, most people can get spooled up on the terms before or after they attend a church service.” (??!!)…Are you then condemning “illiterate” people for not boning up on whatever currently accepted terminology might be facing them each Sunday morning? By accessing a computer and READING up on terminology?For my 2cents, I find the “new” version full of mischief, easily bent to mean whatever any individual would like it to mean, and wholly unacceptable. The original phrasing “Do you repent of the sins that separate us from God and neighbour?” seems quite universally valid to me…our problems today are the same as they have been for centuries. Do not be a source of derision from God/Allah, which is also to say; your neighbor. ANY neighbor. No matter their faith. The original phrase is rather absolute, and does NOT open the door to “evils” being committed under the cloud of personal discrepancy.

I’m not sure how you arrived at that judgment. I’m just raising a legitmate, reasoned argument in favor of not changing core Christian principles, as reflected in the baptism liturgy. Words have meaning, correct? Just because one argues against change in a certain area of Christian liturgy doesn’t mean one is against change in the church in general. Some change is good. Some change is not. I wish you peace. Comments (20) Rector Smithfield, NC [The Tablet] The Church of England is trialling a new version of its baptism service, in which parents and godparents are no longer asked to “repent of sins” and “reject the Devil”.The new wording – which is being piloted in more than 400 parishes until April – was devised in response to requests to couch the ceremony “in culturally appropriate and accessible language”.Anglican baptisms are recognised by the Catholic Church, and vice versa.In the current version of the CofE service, which dates back to 1998, the vicar asks: “Do you reject the devil and all rebellion against God?”. The candidate, or parents and godparents acting on his or her behalf, reply: “I reject them.”Parents and godparents are then asked: “Do you repent of the sins that separate us from God and neighbour?”, to which the reply is: “I repent of them.”Instead of this formula, reference to the devil or sin is dropped and parents and godparents are instead asked to “reject evil, and all its many forms, and all its empty promises”.The amended version currently has no formal status because it has not been formally approved by General Synod. The reforms are backed by Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.But it has already attracted criticism. The former bishop of Rochester Michael Nazir-Ali, and Bishop of Willesden Pete Broadbent accused the church of dumbing down.Writing in the Mail on Sunday, Bishop Nazir-Ali said: “The need is not [for the Church of England] to eliminate crucial areas of teaching but to explain them”, warning that the CofE should “call a halt to this perhaps well-meant effort before it further reduces the fullness of the Church’s faith to easily swallowed soundbites.”The Bishop of Willesden, Pete Broadbent, took issue with a raft of proposed text changes, concluding in a blog: “This is crass. It’s baptism lite. It will not do.”But Revd Miranda Threlfall-Holmes, a vicar in Durham who has been asked to use the new texts in baptism ceremonies until the end of April, said: “This is a first draft, for experimental use. It will doubtless get better as people write in with stories of what worked and what didn’t. But the aim, to have elements of the service that even those of low literacy can understand, is entirely laudable.” Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI January 21, 2014 at 11:36 pm Agree on both points.

Condemining is a a strong word, and I have never condemned anyone in my life So, to answer your question and to clear up any misconceptions, the answer is a resounding “NO”. More importantly, I did not originate the term “illterate”. That was Therlfall-Holmes.i do, however, think that if you only attend church services for weddings, funerals and baptisms, you shouldn’t be at all shocked that you don’t understand some of the terms. That’s not the Church’s fault. That’s a “you problem.What I am saying is that it’s a two way street. Church leaders need to offer accessible opportunities for education on the core teachings of their faith . But, by the same token, those who attend services need to take some responsibility for their own education and faith formation. I don’t think that’s considered condemning anyone. I don’t beleive in the soft bigotry of low expectations, do you? January 9, 2014 at 4:37 pm That’s good news for me. As long as the Bible refers to “satans” and “adversaries” we know that there are many in our lives. Rejecting “evil” is far better in my view. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Danny Anderson says: Suze Barrett says: January 15, 2014 at 7:14 pm Rich, I was not attacking you..but I think you’ve perhaps missed my point regarding your own cotradiction, and the actual ability, or inability, of all peoples everywhere to have a computer and internet of their own, to refer to at any hour of any day. As well, illiterate is a very strong term.In fact, my own dear mother devoted her entire life to Christian Education, as a Director for many years (until at the Diocese), so I understand very well the role the church is capable of playing, in a constructive and active way.I still say, watering down the Baptismal wordings, is a precariously dark well to go down.~But I’m a fan of John Donne..so there you have it.

Submit a Press Release Director of Music Morristown, NJ Richard Basta says: Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest The text of the presiding bishop’s message follows.Presiding Bishop Michael CurryChristmas Message 2017In 2 Corinthians, the Apostle Paul says,If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation. The old has passed away, behold, the new is come.At a point in that passage, St. Paul says, “God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself,” and he also says at another point in the same passage, “and we have been given the ministry of reconciliation.”Have you ever gone to the movies or read a story or a novel, and the novel starts with the end, so you know where the story ends, but then the rest of the story or the novel is actually the story behind the story. We know about Christmas. We know about Mary. We know about Joseph. We know about the angels singing Gloria in excelsis deo. We know from our childhood the animals in the stable. We know of the magi who come from afar, arriving around Epiphany, bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. We know of the angels singing in the heavens, and the star that shown above them. Therein is the story.But the story behind the story is what St. Paul was talking about. God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself, and Jesus has now given us that same ministry of reconciliation. God was reconciling the world to himself by becoming one of us. The divine became human. God entered history. Eternity became part of time. God was reconciling the world to himself by actually living it himself. In Jesus, God came among us to show us the way, to be reconciled with the God who has created us all and everything that is. And God has likewise come in the person of Jesus, to show us how to be reconciled with each other, as children of the one God who is the Creator of us all. That’s the story behind Christmas.God is showing us the Way to become God’s children, and as God’s children, brothers and sisters of each other. God is showing us in Jesus how to become God’s family and how to change, and build, and make a world where everybody is a part of that family. Where children don’t go to bed hungry. Where no one has to be lonely. Where justice is real for all and where love is the ultimate law.Know there is a story behind the story, and it’s a story worth singing about, and giving thanks for, and then living.One of my favorite writers, the late Howard Thurman, composed a poem many years ago about Christmas, and he says it probably better than I:When the song of the angels is stilled,When the star in the sky is gone,When the kings and the princes are home,When the shepherds are back with their flocks,Then the work of Christmas begins:To find the lost,To heal the broken,To feed the hungry,To release the prisoner,To rebuild the nations,To bring peace to others,And alas, to make music in the heart.The story behind the story is that God so loved the world, and so loves you, and so loves me.Have a blessed Christmas, a wonderful New Year, and go out and make music in the heart of the world.The Most Rev.

The new configuration of the house should contain a family of 4 members, a guest area, an independent apartment, a playground and the possibility of dividing the house into two separate units.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSTRATEGY The biggest challenge posed by the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the house is the integration of a new area with more surface in the same pre-existing footprint. Due to the partial state of ruin, it is necessary to demolish the eastern rectangular wing of the original house. The new construction must contain this newly available space and multiply the built meters to accommodate the new programmatic needs. The spatial configuration is developed by concatenating successive blocks of the program (kitchen, living room, bedrooms, and bathroom) with the inclusion of an L block that houses an apartment with independent access. The reading of the blocks can be done through the volumetry expressed in the façade and roof of the house.Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazSave this picture!ElevationsSave this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazTACTICS The most notorious modification occurs in the reconstructed east wing where the height is doubled (enabling a previously non-existent basement) and reconfigures to accommodate the new program. With the intention of creating a quality and functional basement, a tropical English patio that allows light to reach the basement is created. The glass envelope throughout this lower floor provides light and favors the reading of the continuous space, connecting the English patio with the garden to the south of the house. Save this picture!© Luis Díaz DíazThe new reconstructed wing has a formal and constructive duality, sharing aesthetics and similar solutions to the previous house in the entire north façade (arrival to the house) since it is in this area of the house where you can see both eras. This facade has been resolved with traditional construction techniques to achieve the integration of the new part with the old. On the other hand, the south façade takes advantage of the views and the sunlight by opening large windows, resolved with a constructive hybrid system between the traditional and contemporary construction techniques.

Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Department(NEW YORK) — In never-before-seen interrogation tapes, Jason Dalton, the former Uber driver who pleaded guilty to a 2016 shooting spree in the Kalamazoo, Michigan, area that left six dead and two severely wounded, explained in detail how he claimed the ride-sharing app had “guided” him to kill unsuspecting residents.During the 2016 interrogation, tapes of which ABC News’ 20/20 obtained, Dalton told investigators that he’d been working for Uber for less than a week and had noticed something unusual about the mobile app.“The minute that I logged on, to be honest with you, I don’t know what happened,” he is heard telling investigators in tapes. “I know you guys are going to have a hard time believing this, but it literally took over (my) mind and body.”Watch the full story on 20/20 THIS FRIDAY, Feb. 22, at 9 p.m. on ABC.The shootings occurred on the evening of Feb. 20, 2016, as Dalton continued to transport Uber customers to their destinations.His victims included Tiana Carruthers, 28; Richard Smith, 53, and his 17-year-old son, Tyler Smith; Mary Lou Nye, 62; Mary Jo Nye, 60; Dorothy “Judy” Brown, 74; Barbara Hawthorne, 68; and then-14-year-old Abigail Kopf.Carruthers and Kopf survived the shootings.After Dalton was taken into custody, he was interrogated twice, separately by officers with the Michigan State Police and the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety.“He was a white male, salt-and-pepper-colored hair, wearing glasses. … He was short and heavy-set. … Besides that, nothing stood out about him,” Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety detective Cory Ghiringhelli told 20/20.Investigators spoke with him over the course of about four hours overnight and the next day. Dalton showed no emotion in the interrogation room, said detective Bill Moorian of the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety.“There was no fluctuation in his voice. He was just sitting there going through the motions that were going on and it was just unusual,” Moorian said. “[I] never had anybody like that before.”Investigators say that during the interrogation, Dalton was initially hesitant to talk with the officers, refusing to answer their questions and pleading the fifth. He did speak to them about his beloved dog, a black German shepherd, and even asked to call his wife, though shortly after she picked up the phone and a quick exchange, he hung up, telling officers he’d only wanted to hear her voice.Finally, however, he began to talk about the Uber app.Dalton claimed that he’d seen the symbol of the Eastern Star when he initially logged into the Uber app, Kalamazoo detective Ghiringhelli said.“That started this whole thing,” Ghiringhelli recounted from the interrogation.“I just tapped it and then there was like a devil head that popped up,” Dalton told investigators in the tapes. “It was some sort of like horned, horned head like a cow head or something. … I pressed that button and that’s where all the problems went after that.”Dalton told detectives that the Uber app had taken control of him.“You can drive over a hundred miles an hour and go through stoplights and nothing will, you can just get places. … When I tapped that, it said that I could say whatever I wanted to. … There would be no repercussion,” he said.Dalton said the app would start off red and then switch to black.“When it’s in that black mode, it literally has control of you,” he said. “It would do a little blink at me.”Ghiringhelli said that according to Dalton, the app gave him an assignment and he had to complete the assignment.“It was like he was a puppet,” Ghiringhelli told 20/20.The phone communicated with him, Dalton told investigators, instructing him on what to do. “One ding” meant “yes” and “two dings” signaled “no.”Dalton also told investigators that when officers pulled him over around midnight, ending the shooting spree, he’d almost reached for his gun but the phone had returned to red. Dalton said that’s why he did not shoot at the officers.“I was no longer being guided. … I mean, that’s not my nature to be that way,” he told detectives. “The minute that the app went from black to red. … I had my presence.”“I wasn’t believing any of it but if it’s something that’s gonna make him talk, you’re not going to shut him down,” Moorian said. “So, we just let him talk about it and we tried to encourage him.”Dalton also told investigators that prior to the shootings, he had not been sleeping and that was “not normal” for him.“I’ve mainly just lied down a few times,” he said. “I’ve been going for a long time. … I think I’ve been going for probably more than 24 hours.”He told them he had no idea how many people he’d shot and said that shootings had been totally random. He also revealed that he remembered shooting a child.Michigan State Police detective Sgt. Kyle Gorham said Dalton’s voice had changed “dramatically” when he spoke of shooting Kopf.“He felt badly for the child and the family of the child but he didn’t express any remorse for anybody else,” Moorian said.Kalamazoo County prosecutor Jeff Getting said that as far as they know, Dalton had no marital trouble, emotional trouble, criminal record or financial problems. Getting said there was also no evidence of Dalton’s being an extremist.On Jan. 7, nearly three years after the shootings, Dalton pleaded guilty to six counts of first-degree premeditated murder and two counts of assault with the intent to commit murder.The decision was a surprise as attorneys were preparing to select a jury for his criminal trial. A judge sentenced him on Feb. 5 to life in prison without the possibility of a parole.When reaching out to Uber for comment, a representative referred 20/20 to a 2016 call with reporters about the Kalamazoo incident, during which Uber’s then-chief security officer, Joe Sullivan said, in part, “I want to reiterate how devastated we are by these murders, and that our thoughts are with the victims’ families and the broader community in Kalamazoo. As the local police have made clear, the perpetrator had no criminal record, and if there’s nothing on someone’s record, then no background check is going to raise a flag. As this case has shown, past behavior may not accurately predict how people will behave in the future. This is where technology can help ensure safety before, during and after a ride in ways that was not possible a decade ago.”“We’re deeply committed to the safety of everyone on our platform, as well as the communities we serve, and we have a clear policy that prohibits having firearms in the vehicle,” he added.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

In the late 1970s, many people still thought that a cooling trend in the Northern Hemisphere heralded the next ice age. But some were already claiming that rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations, and the “inherent instability” of the land-based West Antarctic ice sheet (WAIS), threatened a sea-level rise that would displace millions of people in a matter of decades. By 1989, a series of warm years were feeding concern that a runaway green-house effect indeed spelt disaster for the world’s ice sheets. “WE COULD BE A CITY BY THE SEA” read a Cambridge Evening News headline and the Green Party took 15% of the British votes for the European Parliament – assessing the potential for disintegration of the polar ice sheets has been recognised as an urgent task.
