VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York [Episcopal Church Foundation press release] The Episcopal Church Foundation (ECF) has named five 2017 Fellows – Jennifer Adams-Massmann, Stewart Clem, Ashley Graham-Wilcox, Renee McKenzie-Hayward, and David Peters.The Fellowship Partners Program is ECF’s longest running program and has supported emerging scholars and ministry leaders across the Episcopal Church for more than fifty years. Established in 1964 to identify academicians who intended to teach in seminary classrooms, the program continues to support emerging scholars and ministry leaders who have a passion for forming the next generation of leaders in the Episcopal Church. A full list of past recipients is available here.ECF President Donald Romanik extended his congratulations to the 2017 Fellows saying, “The Fellowship Partners Program embodies ECF’s vision for the future of the Church, fostering theological formation and ministerial leadership, while supporting innovative scholars and leaders as they bring their passionate vision to life. This year’s Fellowship recipients are involved in a variety of initiatives that will help the Church move into exciting, new directions. We look forward to partnering closely with them over the next three years.”The five recipients’ scholarship and ministry projects demonstrate a Church that is actively engaged with the world. The 2017 Fellows are addressing the value of truth-telling in an age of fake news, developing an understanding of congregational life through the lens of trauma, strengthening veterans’ ministries, researching the role of women in ecumenical history, and expanding key Episcopal institutions’ access to and interest in a more diverse Church. Read more about each of their projects below.The 2017 Fellows are:Jennifer Adams-Massmann: Jennifer is a Ph.D. candidate in American religious history at the University of Heidelberg in Germany and an Episcopal priest. Jennifer’s dissertation project deals with the first Protestant women missionaries: the Moravians. Memoirs, mission records, and travel diaries reveal their unprecedented leadership roles and influence, but also other gendered aspects of early Moravian missions including female networks, piety, and discourse which shaped the nature of early missions. Jennifer plans to share her research with the church and wider public through various media: a book publication, academic journals, popular magazines or radio podcasts, conferences, or teaching. Her goal is to help Christians engage appreciatively but critically with our past in order to address today’s challenges. Jennifer received her B.A. in English literature and political science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and her M.Div. from Duke Divinity School, with studies abroad in Germany and Switzerland. Ordained in 2007, she worked in university and parish ministry in the U.S. and Germany before beginning doctoral studies. She has taught courses in American religious history at the University of Heidelberg and church history with the Cambridge Theological Federation in the UK. She recently moved to England, where she lives with her husband Alexander, a German theologian and ethicist, and their son.Stewart Clem: Stewart is a John Templeton Foundation graduate scholar and doctoral candidate in moral theology and Christian ethics at the University of Notre Dame. His research focuses on the ethics of language, with a special emphasis on lying and truth-telling in contemporary society. His current project draws upon the thought of the scholastic theologian St. Thomas Aquinas to develop an account of the virtue of truth and its opposing vices. One aim of the project is to suggest ways in which faith communities can cultivate this virtue, arguing that a just community must also share a commitment to truthfulness. Stewart serves as Assisting Priest at St. Paul’s Church (Mishawaka, Indiana) and is a frequent contributor to Covenant, the weblog of The Living Church magazine. He is a graduate of Oklahoma State University (M.A., B.A.) and Duke Divinity School (M.Div.), and his essays in philosophy and theology have appeared in journals such as New Blackfriars, Religious Studies, and the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics.Ashley Graham-Wilcox: Ashley is director of communications for Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers, the nationwide network of the summer camps, retreat centers, and conference centers that serve as a front line of welcome of the world to the Episcopal Church. Ashley’s goal is for campers and retreat center guests to always feel themselves welcomed and see themselves reflected when visiting an Episcopal camp or conference center. The 86 sites and over 100 programs in Episcopal camping and retreat ministry serve incredibly diverse audiences, through summer camp, retreats, conferences, outdoor education, and teambuilding programs. This fellowship aims to expand, rethink, and empower how we welcome those diverse audiences and reflect our communities, through programming, training, and staffing. Ashley worked in high tech marketing and advertising, before finding her calling in the rad and radical hospitality of camping and retreat ministry.Renee McKenzie-Hayward: Renee is the vicar of the George W. South Memorial Church of the Advocate located in Philadelphia PA within in the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania; she has served this congregation as well as Temple University as the Episcopal Chaplain since 2011. Renee received her PhD from Temple University in 2005 with a concentration on Womanist Thought and the Philosophy of Religion. The Church of the Advocate sits at the center of a historically black community, adjacent to Temple University. As an established community hub offering a variety of social service programs, the Advocate is a central place for the community to organize for social justice. Generational and sudden trauma extracts a great toll on this community. Renee’s project will develop a Trauma Informed Ministry that understands the human cost of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome and informed by Womanist and Liberation Theologies. The proposed project will enhance the Advocate’s work by organizing the ministry under a framework of healing trauma. Trauma Informed Ministry will the lens that informs relationships and services offered with and among congregation members and community. Staff and congregational leaders will better understand the manifestations of trauma, allowing the traumatized to heal via a holistic approach to wellness addressing the needs of the mind, body and spirit.David Peters: David enlisted in the Marine Corps in his teens, finished college and seminary, and went to work as a youth minister in a suburban church in Pennsylvania. Shortly after 9/11 and the U.S. invasion of Iraq, David volunteered to serve as an Army chaplain and deployed to Iraq in 2005. After Iraq, he was assigned to the amputee and psych wards of Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. These experiences in war and the trials of homecoming led him to start the Episcopal Veterans Fellowship in the Diocese of Texas in 2014. The EVF equips the Church for ministry to veterans with moral injury and the spiritual and theological affects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This grant will enable David to travel to parishes and dioceses across the Church to nurture existing veterans ministries and coach parishes and dioceses as they start new ones. David is a graduate of Seminary of the Southwest and the author of two books on war and reconciliation. His most recent is Post-Traumatic God, published by Church Publishing in 2016. An engaging preacher, his 9/11 sermon, “Learning War and Reconciliation,” won the Reconciliation Preaching Prize from Trinity, Wall Street in 2015. If you would like David to come to your parish or diocese to share the work of EVF, please contact him at [email protected] Course Director Jerusalem, Israellast_img read more

Save this picture!© Alessandro GiraldiAfter going through some hotel typologies and required morphological elements – services and common areas in the lower part of the building and rooms located within the tower, on the upper floors – the strategy was to avoid fragmentation of these two volumes, taking into consideration the challenge of creating a unique image for the whole complex.Save this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!SectionThe final project houses a lobby, restaurant, SPA and Business Center in the lower level and 156 rooms in total, combining the elements through a unique materials’ choice.

The proposed solution determines a new scale for the windows of the rooms, creating vertical groups with three stories high each and establishing, in this way, the direct dialogue with the brise-soleils of the lower windows.Save this picture!© Alessandro GiraldiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Alessandro GiraldiPremier Flat arrives in Queimados as a visual landmark in the landscape and also as a new building standard for the area, acting as a starting point for future endeavors aimed at qualifying the city.Project gallerySee allShow lessGold 800 Experience Centre / SPACEMENSelected ProjectsPause / DBR | Design Build ResearchSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Queimados, RJ, BrazilLocation to be used only as a reference.

Ag Leadership Changes Coming in 2015

first_img Ag Leadership Changes Coming in 2015 Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Nov 6, 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Leadership Changes Coming in 2015 Ag leadership changesBig changes are in store for agriculture in Congress after Tuesday’s sweeping GOP wins that put the party in control of the Senate starting next year. There will be a new chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee and American Farm Bureau’s Dale Moore says it’s likely a senator thought to be at risk of losing his race at one point in Kansas.“Most everyone talks about Senator Pat Roberts, having won his reelection effort, is the most likely candidate. If he is the new chairman of the ag committee on the Senate side, it would be him unique in the sense that he’s also chaired House Agriculture Committee.”There will also be a change at the top of the House Agriculture Committee even with that body remaining under Republican control.“Republicans put term limits in terms of the number of years that individuals can serve as chairman of the committee, so Chairman Frank Lucas is stepping down after this Congress. I’m sure he’s going to remain on the committee, and the most often mentioned new chairman is Representative Mike Conaway from Texas.”Moore sees limited agriculture legislative action in the post-election lame duck session, which must at least extend expiring stop-gap funding of the government.“We are hopeful that we’ll see something on the tax extenders, hopefully for us it’s the Section 179 and the bonus depreciation, the two that are right at the top of our list, but it’s that whole package of tax extenders. I think it would surprise me if we saw the lame duck address issues of Waters of the U.S. We’ve also heard rumors, but I kind of discount that the lame duck is going to take time to work on any of the trade issues. I think those are all issues that are going to be on the table come the new Congress.”Immigration reform should be on the table too, and AFBF has pushed for that to boost the seasonal labor force. But that could still be a problem if the president upsets conservatives with unilateral action on illegal immigrants. Other big issues for the American Farm Bureau include budget and spending bills, continued farm bill implementation and state attempts to label GMO foods.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articlePeterson: Opening Farm Bill in Next Congress Puts Everything in JeopardyNext articleFair Oaks Pig Adventure Offering National Internship Opportunity Andy Eubanklast_img read more

But without favourable consideration of fee reduction, the university administration is insisting that the fee should be paid, the students said in the writ petition filed through  M/s.

How VCE Delivers Seamless Support

first_imgIn today’s complex computing environments, IT is responsible for building and maintaining an infrastructure that will keep organizations running smoothly. However, when things go awry for IT shops, navigating through multiple customer support groups can create an even bigger headache—particularly for customers that use traditional or reference architectures with components from multiple vendors.Learn about VCE’s Core, Plus and Premier Support programs.Since the beginning, VCE’s goal has been to make things simple for our customers. We provide pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-validated converged infrastructure systems that can be quickly deployed, easily distributed and counted on to increase the predictability and timeliness of IT projects.We take this same approach to customer support.Every minute of downtime can cost businesses thousands of dollars in lost productivity. And for IT managers dealing with components from multiple vendors and coordinating them when support is needed can become a logistical nightmare. At VCE, we provide our customers with a single point of support to simplify the troubleshooting and resolution process. By combining a fully tested multi-vendor system with a specialized team using an interconnected backend support CRM, we can easily navigate issues affecting the Vblock System, no matter which component causes the problem. While this process sounds simple enough, we work hard behind the scenes to create a seamless experience for our customers. VCE brings together best-in-class components from Cisco, EMC and VMware—which means we have expertise in every component of the Vblock System so we can support it as a single product, in a single support call. We train our support staff to know the Vblock System inside and out and test each product extensively before deployment to keep many potential issues from ever happening at all. We also maintain teams of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) that specialize in individual Vblock System components and work together to resolve more complex issues. This gives us a powerful advantage, enabling us to resolve 90 percent of all support calls without the need to escalate to Cisco, EMC or VMware. More importantly, it also means better and faster support for our customers when they need us most.“Watch my video below to learn more about my team and find out how we provide comprehensive and accountable technical support.Sharelast_img read more
