That lack of mastery can lead to a lifetime of low achievement – and poverty.That is the basic premise of Reading Camp, an 11-year-old ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Lexington. In addition to breaking the cycle of poverty by helping young children avoid a lifetime of illiteracy, the camps also aim to build self-confidence and teach campers about their local heritage. Thus, campers get a jump-start on being contributing members of their families and their communities.The Reading Camp ministry helps run camps all over the world and close to home. Each week-long camp, some of them sleep-away and some day camps, is built on a combination of interdisciplinary learning – sometimes masqueraded as play – and activities such as hikes, games and crafts. Staff members are all volunteers and serve in roles such as teachers, counselors, nurses and administrators. Some volunteers come back year after year.On Dec. 3, the Episcopal Church announced that the program had received $20,000 to further its work. The grant was one of nine Roanridge Trust Award Grants made for 2014.Recently, Episcopal News Service spent time at the annual Reading Camp held in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky at the Pine Mountain Settlement School. The school itself, founded in 1913 as boarding school for mountain children and as a settlement serving the community through economic, health and cultural initiatives, has for the last 30 years provided instruction in environmental education and traditional arts and culture to thousands of students.Alpha Sigma Tau sorority has supported the work of the Pine Mountain Settlement School since 1945 through financial donations as well as volunteer work. During this year’s Reading Camp, sorority collegiate and alumnae members were part of the volunteer staff, some of them for the first time.The 2013 Pine Mountain Reading Camp week was the last for then-Executive Director Allison Duvall before she joined the staff of Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) as program manager for co-sponsorship and church relations. Michelle Sjogren of Lexington was recently called to be the new executive director of Reading Camp.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Contemporary housing design in China usually follows a preoccupied real estate formula to limit risk in the market. As a result, it is hard to find opportunities and space for architects to develop new housing typologies in such market-oriented reality. Save this picture!© Wu QiweiLocated on a hillside at Shekou district in Shenzhen, the total area of the project site is roughly 13,200 square meters, with 25,100 square meters of built area for residential apartments and hotel rooms. The intention of this project is to question the conventional real estate developments in China, for which only design is only about how to economize the project instead of in-depth architectural design of spatial quality.Save this picture!© Wu QiweiContrasting to that, the key concept of this project focuses on how to contextualize architecture with the existing geographical condition and to recall the experience of traditional Chinese gardens in the making of modern living space, thus to reinterpret the everyday life experience and spatial organization from traditional China. As a result, the Maillen Hotel & Apartment becomes an special living environment for both short and long term tenants. The proposal offers an alternative to the typical models of housing development. In addition, it allows sufficient profits and increases local job opportunities. The project remembers some fundamental philosophical ideas of landscape by emphasizing the experience of ‘hills outside hills, and gardens inside gardens.’ Chinese traditional philosophy usually imagines the idealism between man and nature by using the metaphorical and dialectic relationship of hill/water and garden/trees. With these concepts in mind, designers would like to create a novel life style, which integrates traditional dwelling and landscape theory and contemporary lifestyle. The internal spatial organization is well designed: a linear and continuous experience is engendered when one is walking inside the complex following the pathways. The emphasis of the idea of time is an attempt to mimic the rhythm of the spatial experience of traditional villages and landscapes in China. Save this picture!elevation 01Located on the foot of the hill, called ‘Nan Shan’, the site is a terraced and sloped one. The building complex gently grows from the landscape in rectangular geometry, to respond to the geography. Ponds and courtyards are offered to the residents to recall the experience of the nature in the manmade. Views from the units extend to smaller courtyards, where bamboo, pine, and plum blossom can be found. In the center of the complex, a modest walkway forms floating on the water, bridging the interconnected gardens.Project gallerySee allShow less’THE BLUE LINE’ Dnieper Pearls Competition Winning Proposal / Wolf House Productions…ArticlesSuZhou 133: BaiTang One Kindergarten Project / CPG AdvisoryArticlesProject locationAddress:Yanshan Road, Shekou, Nanshan District, Shenzhen, ChinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

First Fundraising Camp takes place in Oxford tomorrow About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 23 September 2013 | News Tagged with: Community fundraising Training UK Fundraising tomorrow hosts the UK’s first Fundraising Camp for fundraisers in Oxford. This is the first in a series of ‘unconference’-style events designed to help fundraisers find and share ideas, contacts and advice from other fundraisers in their region.Unlike standard conferences, this event will not have any set roster of speakers or topics. Instead, the delegates themselves are the speakers. Each of them is encouraged to come prepared to talk for 30 minutes or so on a fundraising subject that matters to them.This could be sharing a successful case study, an idea for a fundraising campaign that they’d like feedback on, something they learned the hard way, suggestions for collaborating on an event, or a problem they have faced and can’t resolve.

It is an opportunity to tap into the extensive experience and expertise available from the people who are usually in the audience at a conference, and who usually network with just a small proportion of the rest of the audience.The event might feature informal discussions, some Powerpoint presentations, a panel session, a mini training session, some videos, a show and tell exercise, or a copywriting clinic. It is down to the delegates and what they wish to talk about and how they prefer to do so, with some ./guidance and help from the UK Fundraising team of course. Low ticket price eventThe first Fundraising Camp has sold out, and will be attended by over 60 delegates. It has been kept at the price of £25 + VAT for the whole day, including lunch and refreshments. This has been made possible by sponsors One Cent Call and Be Inspired Films. Fundraising Camp?The event is indoors and does not involve tents. Its format is inspired by other alternative conference formats such as unconferences and barcamps, in particular Barcamp Nonprofits. Indeed, Sylwia Presley, co-founder of Barcamp Nonprofits, will be assisting at the event.Like these events, Fundraising Camp will encourage its delegates to share what they learn at the event and in particular to a wider audience via social media and UK Fundraising. The hashtag for the event is #fundraisingcamp. More Fundraising Camps to comeThe initial announcement of Fundraising Camp has generated a lot of interest in the format around the country and further afield so UK Fundraising will be running perhaps a dozen more of these events, primarily in towns and cities that don’t often attract fundraising conferences. Fundraising Camp will take place in Canterbury at the University of Kent, courtesy of the Centre for Philanthropy, on 30 November, and other venues and dates will be announced soon.
The committee also discussed protecting an individual who transferred a recording to a media outlet. It is expected that an effort will be made to amend the bill on second reading. The bill is opposed by the HSUS and the Sierra Club. Kraft said, if the bill is weakened too much during floor debate, IFB would withdraw its support and try again next year. SHARE Another bill moving in the General Assembly is SB 373 which will make it illegal to record an agricultural or industrial operation without the operator’s consent. The bill was amended by committee and is now before the Senate. Kraft says the measure is designed to protect the private property rights of farmers, not to hide wrongdoing, “The basic underlying principle of the bill is that private property is private and what goes on there should pretty much stay private. This is in no way a defense of mistreating animals or criminal misconduct; we don’t condone that.” During a hearing before the Senate Corrections & Criminal Law Committee, amendments were suggested that would allow for notification to local law enforcement or the Indiana Board of Animal Health. Kraft said Indiana Farm Bureau would support those measures. Ag Bills Making Progress in General Assembly The bill is sponsored by Sen. Travis Holdman (R-Markle) and has the support of Farm Bureau and several Indiana livestock groups. Kraft says these undercover videos are not produced by the media but are one-sided accusations by groups who oppose livestock production, “These videos can be manipulated and maneuvered to be used very effectively to advocate an agenda based on a false representation.” By Gary Truitt – Feb 19, 2013 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Ag Bills Making Progress in General Assembly Previous articleDuPont Pioneer Expert Shares Tips on How to Reduce Early-Season Stress on EmergenceNext articleUpcoming Meetings will Help Small Farm and Dairy Producers Gary Truitt Ag Bills Making Progress in General AssemblyBob KraftWith the current session of the Indiana General Assembly not even at the half way mark, several key pieces of farm legislation have already seen action. Indiana Farm Bureau’s top priority for this session was passage of a bill to stop implementation of a new soil productivity formula for farmland tax assessment. That passed the House Monday afternoon after passing the Senate earlier in the session. Farm Bureau’s Bob Kraft says quick action by lawmakers will avoid the new rate from going into affect on March 1,”The bill does not have to go back to the Senate, so it will be on the Governor’s desk by Friday; and I fully expect him to sign it before March 1 when the new rate would take effect.” The bill delays for 1 year the implementation of a new rate and requires the state, along with Purdue University, to study new formula alternatives. By the time the bill passed the House, it had over 66 sponsors. SHARE Another tax bill that Indiana Farm Bureau is watching was introduced by Rep. Eric Turner (R-Cicero). HB 1546, makes a number of technical changes to various state taxes including the commercial vehicle excise tax (CVET). It makes permanent the registration of commercial trucks in fleets of 25 or more. Farm Bureau tax specialist Katrina Hall expressed concerns that because CVET has a revenue guarantee for local governments, any changes to the fees paid by fleets of trucks would make CVET paid by farmers higher. She was assured that the bill did not change any registration fees, but Indiana Farm Bureau will be watching this bill closely and urges members to remind legislators how high the CVET paid by farmers are already.
Home Energy Gasoline Prices Should Stay Low for Summer Wally TynerCurrent supplies of gasoline and expected production this year should keep prices at the fuel pump 40-60 cents per gallon lower than last summer despite supply disruptions that have pushed prices higher in recent months, especially in the Midwest, Purdue University energy economist Wally Tyner says.“We enter the summer season with gasoline and crude oil markets a bit out of kilter,” he said. Tyner said U.S. crude oil and gasoline supplies are above normal, which would suggest that prices should fall. But he noted that several disruptions in supplies globally have moved prices higher. Crude oil prices have increased about 80 percent since January, from $26 per barrel then to $47 on Monday (May 16).“Yet all the forecasts call for global production to exceed consumption through the end of 2016,” he said. “So what, we might ask, is going on?”Here’s the situation, as Tyner explains it:* There have been long-term supply issues in Nigeria and Venezuela. Production in Nigeria is at a 22-year low because, in part, of civil war, and political instability in Venezuela “continues to put a drag on production,” he said.* A labor strike in Kuwait halted production there for several days. That strike has now ended.* The biggest disruption affecting the Midwest involves the Canadian oil sands, where a widespread fire in Alberta province shut down Canadian oil sand production. Although the fire was not in the oil sands area, it destroyed the living paces of most of the workers, so production was halted. That resulted in a loss of 1 million barrels per day for U.S. imports.Because the largest refinery in the Midwest gets a large share of its crude from the Canadian oil sands, particularly affected are consumers in Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Ohio, Tyner said.“So the bad news is that until Canadian oil sand production gets back up to normal, we are likely to see higher prices than in previous weeks,” he said.Despite that, Tyner said the standard production and consumption trends suggest prices at the pump staying fairly steady over the summer.Consumers are expected to drive more this summer, but production should keep prices 40-60 cents per gallon lower than the summer 2015 range of $2.60 to $2.80.“Of course, just like the Canadian wildfire, unforeseen supply disruptions can always send prices up temporarily,” Tyner said. “But with global production forecast to exceed consumption through 2016 and inventories already high, we should be able to weather any temporary disruptions.”Writer: Keith Robinson, 765-494-2722, [email protected]: Wally Tyner, 765-494-0199, [email protected] Communications: (765) 494-2722;Keith Robinson, [email protected] News Page Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Gasoline Prices Should Stay Low for Summer Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – May 16, 2016 Previous articleCorn and Soybean Demand ImprovingNext articleConsolidation Continues: Kubota to Acquire Great Plans Manufacturing Gary Truitt

An intelligence service spokesman said only that there was “some evidence” about the journalists’ “involvement in gathering information for foreign intelligence agencies and being paid for it.” It was the first time since the intelligence service was founded in 1990 (replacing the Ceaucescu regime’s dreaded Securitate) that it had publicly admitted tapping journalists’ phones, though it has often been accused of spying on the media. Under the communist regime, about 700,000 people are thought to have had their phones tapped. News RomaniaEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts Organisation Help by sharing this information to go further January 28, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Secret police tap phones of two journalists The Romanian intelligence service admitted on 26 January it had tapped the phones of two Romanian journalists working for foreign media because it suspected they were spying. The authorities refused to name them or their employers, pleading legal secrecy rules. RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive RSF_en News Romania: In an open letter, RSF and ActiveWatch denounce judicial pressures on investigative journalists following a complaint from a Bucharest district mayor Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union Reporters Without Borders today criticised the tapping of the phones of two Romanian journalists working for foreign media as a violation of the right not to reveal journalistic sources and called on the government to comply with European standards in the matter.Intelligence service chief Radu Timofte admitted on 26 January to the Mediafax news agency that he had tapped the phones of two journalists, whose names and employers he refused to disclose, because they were suspected of spying.”The right not to reveal sources of information is a cornerstone of press freedom too important for any exceptions to be made,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Romania must observe European standards, notably article 10 of the European Human Rights Convention, be open about phone-tapping and end outdated habits of secrecy,” it said in a letter to justice minister Monica Macovei.The revelation came two days after the Bucharest daily Ziua published a copy of an October 2003 letter from the interior ministry’s intelligence chief, Virgil Ardelean, to the national anti-corruption bureau proposing that the phones of Mediafax and the AM Press news agency be tapped. He said he needed to verify reports about an inspector he said was leaking details of investigations to “unauthorised people” at the two news agencies.The interior ministry admitted on 24 January the letter was genuine but said that in the end neither the phones of the two agencies or any other had been tapped. The disclosure caused outrage and press freedom groups such as the Media Monitoring Agency, as well as members of parliament, called for an enquiry. Interior minister Vasile Blaga said on 25 January he would sack Ardelean if he had broken the law. Intelligence chief Timofte then admitted he had tapped the phones of the two unnamed journalists, saying only that they worked for “little-known magazines” and “foreign media.” November 23, 2020 Find out more
