Image source: Getty Images As a result of the 2020 stock market crash, many quality UK stocks are trading at heavily reduced prices. This is great news for investors looking to pick up a few bargains and hold them for the long term. With so many top shares on offer, it can be hard to know where to begin.With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of the stocks that stand out to me in the current market conditions. If you’re after long-term capital growth through investing in the stock market, I reckon these are among the best UK companies to invest in today.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The best UK stocks to invest inFirst up on my list is healthcare and pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline. The company has had an impressive start to the year with group sales rising by 19%, reflecting growth across all three of its divisions. What’s more, the defensive nature of GSK shares should be a welcomed addition to any portfolio in light of the economic uncertainty that lies ahead. Regardless of what the future holds, earnings and dividends should remain resilient.My second option caters for investors who can stomach some additional risk. Budget airlines operator easyJet has seen its share price plummet since the outbreak of Covid-19. This may come as no surprise given that the group’s entire fleet has been grounded. In my view though, the shares still look oversold, even after Tuesday’s bounce back. The group announced that it will resume a limited range of flights from 15 June, while bookings for the winter season are said to be “well ahead” of the same point last year. Ultimately, I think shares in Europe’s leading airline could continue to bounce back nicely, rewarding investors who were willing to take the plunge.Finally, aerospace and defence giant BAE Systems comfortably earns its place as one of the best UK stocks to buy in my opinion. As well as having leading positions in the US, UK, Saudi Arabian, and Australian markets, BAE is establishing its presence in a number of other international markets. Nations around the world have been ramping up defence spending for decades and the current geopolitical scene suggests that won’t ease anytime soon. Looking ahead, I think BAE’s cyber and intelligence business could be a key driver of growth over the coming years.Long-term investmentsIn my view, all three of these companies represent great value, evidenced primarily by their respective price-to-earnings ratios (GSK: 13.4, easyJet: 6.2, BAE: 10.8) and growth prospects. Moreover, both GSK and BAE Systems boast attractive dividend yields of 4.8% and 4.6%.One thing to remember though, is that it is important to have a long-term horizon when investing in shares. The stock market is often volatile and it’s never a smooth line upwards. Investing for the long term allows you to ride out temporary market downswings and gives ample time for your returns to compound.Ultimately, I expect investors who capitalise on low share prices today to receive attractive returns in the long run as the global economy gets back on its feet and the stock market recovers. As such, I think now could be an ideal time to invest in some of the best UK stocks out there.

Summer tours: The summary

first_imgWalesPerformance: A tour of two halves. Good enough to beat Japan once, but unceremoniously dumped in the second outing. Some fans may be angry with the outcome, but some new names have pushed ahead while others have shown they are not quite up to it yet.Development: The improvements in Liam Williams, Harry Robinson and James King will make Welsh fans happy, but the way in which the team fell to Japan for the first time ever, 23-8, may be heartbreaking. There is clearly depth there in Wales and it is about breeding confidence to take forward into future internationals. Dan Biggar may now be considered a leader, too.Improvements for next season: Instead of turning over a volume of players, the challenge is turning those who could be knocking on the door into fully-fledged Test rugby players. Can the new caps make use of their Japanese experience? Japanese forward Takashi Kikutani (C/red jersey) raises his arms after the team’s win during a test match against Wales in Tokyo on June 15, 2013. Japan made history by beating Six Nations champions Wales 23-8 for their first ever victory over a major rugby nation in nearly 80 years of international competition. AFP PHOTO/Toru YAMANAKA (Photo credit should read TORU YAMANAKA/AFP/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS IrelandPerformance: They cut it fine against the USA Eagles but finished well by clapping a heavy score on Canada. Mission accomplished for Ireland.Development: Robbie Henshaw has been smoothly eased into international rugby and Stuart Olding has seen action, but the most important aspect for interim coach Les Kiss was to show on-looking and incoming boss Joe Schmidt what auxiliary options he has at fly-half. Ian Madigan has stepped up.Improvements for next season: Ireland started well in the Six Nations before fading, and in the new regime they have to make use of the new generation and those who will aid the transition as older players prepare to hang up their boots. Expect Dave Kilcoyne, Darren Cave, Kevin McLaughlin, Tommy O’Donnell plus Henshaw and Olding to be used more in the near future.ItalyPerformance: Went hard, but fell short once again. The same song, if only with a few different dance moves.Development: New players? Italy wanted to be competitive and so it was a case of same old, same old when they fell to South Africa, Samoa and then Scotland. By this point we all know their strengths, but at least Matias Aguero and Davide Giazzon hint at options in the front-row.Improvements for next season: There are no new names, no bright young superstars. Italy need to continue improving as a team while begging the powers that be to improve their Pro12 sides.ScotlandPerformance: Outmuscled by Samoa; furious and belligerent against the Springboks; just good enough to beat Italy. Scotland’s summer stint in South Africa for the Quadrangular Tournament was a mixed bag, but when you consider they scraped through with a patchwork squad and many new caps it is a wonder they survived at all.Jubilant Japan: Beating Wales for first timeDevelopment: New caps for Duncan Taylor, Fraser Brown, Tim Swinson, Tommy Seymour, Peter Murchie, Pat MacArthur, Alex Dunbar, Greig Tonks, Stevie Lawrie and Pete Horne tells you what sort of tour it was. Several different stand-offs and jersey swapping to boot, consistency was hard.Improvements for next season: Keep everyone fit and make sure that the management are able to keep competitive fires burning and men well managed heading towards next season’s camps. Bright futures: England’s young team celebrate a series victory over Argentina at the end of their summer tourBy Alan DymockTHE SUMMER tour schedule is over, with the exception of the Lions. All the Six Nations sides are done and now the players can look forward to a relaxing five minutes of rest before the hard work for the 2013/14 season begins.It was a summer where development was at the forefront of thinking, with all the touring coaches wanting to be competitive as well as readying younger charges for the harsh and unforgiving environment of Test rugby.In some circumstances this was a triumph, while in others it was a rougher ride.EnglandPerformance: Slashing and restricting like cruel seamstresses, England handily dispatched all in front of them in their South American tour. A select side made up of Argentine amateurs and internationals from Brazil, Chile and Uruguay were dealt with before an understrength Pumas side was obliterated on two occasions by Stuart Lancaster’s belligerent squad.All Black and blue: Marc Andreu winces during the final TestDevelopment: While more experienced players like Tom Wood, Ben Morgan and Mike Brown showed up well, it was the impressive upstarts Christian Wade, Marland Yarde and Kyle Eastmond flashing through opposition backlines and Matt Kvesic getting his hands dirty. In Freddie Burns, too, Lancaster has a challenger for Owen Farrell to deal with.Improvements for next season: With options in the backline that are exciting and nimble, Lancaster needs to decide on what style he wants England to play going forward. If he keeps things the same, he must impartially decide which of those options is able to fit into that style.FrancePerformance: It is hard to determine which word to use to describe France’s disastrous summer. ‘Incroyable’ sounds too positive and ‘catastrophe’ doesn’t encompass the thigh-slapping ludicrousness of the selection policy used by Phillipe Saint-Andre. In 18 months the team have been as shapeless as Jabba the Hutt’s body-sock and just as ugly, watching them trying things out for the first time.Development: Remi Tales is no spring chicken at 29, but with the experiment with Freddie Michalak appearing to be total bust – again, visualise the body-sock – the Castres fly-half is the man France need to pair with Morgan Parra when he is good to go again. Apart from that, France still have a plethora of players like Antoine Claasen and Jean-Marc Doussain who could be used, but only really as back-up to their recognised names.Finally, time to rest: Beattie and Lamont after beating ItalyImprovements for next season: Big meetings are being held to discuss the breakdown of the current preposterous Top 14 season as well as the number of foreign players in the league. However, beyond the politics, it must be asked whether Saint-Andre is really the right man for the top job. Either way, a long-term plan for the national side needs to be set out.last_img read more

New theological school launched by 4 Midwestern dioceses

first_img Youth Minister Lorton, VA Submit an Event Listing October 1, 2013 at 9:39 pm I myself was seminary trained, and did some STM pre work beyond. After thirteen years of full time ministry, I was inactive for a couple of years. For the last thirty I have been doing bi-vocational work. I must say… I hold my hat to the local priests in the area. For a time, I was teaching Bible and church history in a local school. We poured it on! They learned. And I am glad to serve as a fellow worker in the vineyard with the rigorously trained local clergy. Rector Shreveport, LA November 21, 2013 at 9:25 pm I’m beginning to see that the opposite is becoming true. people with the general of moving experience is enhancing the theological learning experience. As lay persons in the field already, these learners are broadening the mutual learning of one another in a very respectful environment. TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector Martinsville, VA Bob Griffith says: October 1, 2013 at 4:36 pm My questions is whether there will now develop, or rather the rate will increase, of two classes of clerics – those who are seminary trained and those who are not? I understand that we are running out of money, yet… I don’t find this a viable and long term solution, unless we think providing a less-educated class of clergy for our congregations will actually help even small congregations thrive beyond our current circumstances – or the dumbing-down of clerical “profession” is the acceptable outcome. October 2, 2013 at 9:08 am I am a VTS graduate with 30 + years in the ministry. I welcome this step forward. I think it will bring us clergy with a vision that will enhance our theological and pastoral response to the world. I have20 + years that in a parish blessed with seminary interns many who suffered from an ivory tower set apart vision of the church, they need some of the in the world understanding of how to join the teachings of the church and the living of the faith. Byron Banks says: An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET November 2, 2013 at 2:41 am “Dumbing Down” is what goes on in “government” schools.

Canon Robyn Szoke-Coolidge says: Tony Green says: November 21, 2013 at 9:31 pm CORRECTION: (People are bringing a broad range of experience to this type of learning — enhancing….) The Rev. Rob Baldwin, rector of Trinity Episcopal Church in Lawrence, Kansas, uses a milking stool to illustrate the “three-legged stool” of Anglican theology during a class on Anglican identity for students at the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry. Photo/Melodie Woerman[Episcopal Diocese of Kansas] Class is now in session for the Bishop Kemper School for Ministry, the newly created school that provides theological education to students from the dioceses of Kansas, West Missouri, Nebraska and Western Kansas. The school’s first group of students, 35 people from all four dioceses, met for the first time Aug. 10-11 in Topeka.To celebrate the school’s creation, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori will be in Topeka on Oct. 5. She will speak at a public forum on the emerging shape of the church and the changing face of ministry. She then will officiate at a service to mark the school’s opening and dedicate school facilities, and she will greet people at a public reception.The school is named for Bishop Jackson Kemper, the first missionary bishop of the Episcopal Church, who was the organizing bishop when each of the four dioceses was founded in the 19th century. He also was committed to the value of local theological education for the growth and health of the Episcopal Church.The school was formed from existing diocesan programs to provide a high quality theological education for people preparing for ordination and for lay leaders in congregations, all without having to head off to a traditional seminary, where costs can run more than $30,000 a year.And for the bishops of the partner dioceses, it provides something critical – the ability to provide pastoral and sacramental leadership for their congregations.Nebraska Bishop J. Scott Barker said the school “is an answered prayer” for his diocese, in part because the curriculum addresses “the uniqueness of the church in the Midwest,” which includes lots of smaller congregations in cities and towns that are miles apart.Kansas Bishop Dean Wolfe said the school’s goal is to develop “visionary leaders, faithful leaders, courageous leaders” for congregations, no matter the diocese in which they are located.West Missouri Bishop Martin Field said the school will provide “well-prepared and able” clergy for congregations that aren’t able to afford the cost of a seminary-trained priest. It also will prompt those congregations to identify natural leaders in their midst to send to the school, he said.Western Kansas Bishop Michael Milliken called his diocese a “rural/frontier area” made up of very small congregations. This school is “one of the few ways available for a great theological education” for leaders in those churches, he said.Field added, “I am as excited about this project as I’ve ever been about any project to engage the church for its betterment.”Exploring the nature of ministryThe school’s dean, the Rev. Andrew Grosso, said that the benefit of having four diocesan partners is that together they “take seriously the emerging missional character of ministry in today’s church.” As the school’s structure was being decided, he said some fundamental issues – the nature of ministry and the shape of the church – became very important.He said, “‘How do you form a priest?’ implies you are asking ‘What does Christian ministry in today’s church look like?’ It’s all part of a larger context.”Sending bivocational and nonstipendiary clergy into congregations only makes sense if lay people understand they are part of the ministry in that place, he said. One of the school’s purposes will be “empowering and inspiring more people to engage in more forms of ministry.”Initial efforts have centered on a curriculum for the ordination track, since the four dioceses had people ready to start those studies. But Grosso said classes also will equip lay leaders to be catechists, evangelists, youth minsters, parish administrators, outreach ministers, worship leaders and lay preachers, among other ministries.A high quality educationWhile the school is new, most of the students are returning for a second or third year. The program for priests runs three years and for deacons, two. Each diocese sets its own criteria for who can enroll in the school.Charles Everson, a first-year priesthood student from the Diocese of Kansas, discovered quickly that the courses are thought-provoking. After just two weekends of classes he said, “I have a challenging and exciting road ahead of me for the next three years!”Bruce Bower is a second-year student from the Diocese of West Missouri preparing to be a deacon. He called the courses “rigorous” and the instructors “top notch.” He said that attending the Bishop Kemper School “doesn’t mean the students have to settle for a theological education that is somehow less than we might receive elsewhere.”The Rev. Carolyn Ballinger is a third-year priesthood student from the Diocese of Western Kansas who was ordained a transitional deacon in May. She said the courses she has taken “exceed the offerings and demands” she had when earning a Ph.D.But beyond the quality of instruction, students praised the community that is formed among them. Ballinger said that after spending a weekend a month living, eating, learning and praying together, she and others stay in touch outside of class, “asking, giving and receiving friendship and encouragement.”Bower said a friend of his attends a traditional Episcopal seminary and “expresses envy about how BKSM students have so much interaction together, and how we are able to grow in relationships.”Everson said the local aspect of the school is critically important. “There are many men and women called to ordained ministry … for whom a formal seminary degree is not a viable option.”Alison Black, a second-year priest student from the Diocese of Kansas, said, “Being a stay-at-home mom to three small children, there is no way that I could attend a traditional seminary anytime in the near future.” Ballinger said that the local setting makes theological education accessible to people from “any social class, age group, level of financial influence, and cultural or ethnic background.”A unique structureGrosso said he believes the school’s structure is the only one of its kind in the Episcopal Church. The Bishop Kemper School for Ministry is a non-profit corporation operated jointly by the four dioceses.The desire for a different model for the school developed in the past year, as students from Western Kansas, West Missouri and Nebraska attended the Kansas School for Ministry. The four bishops soon saw the need for a school that was jointly owned, to allow it to grow beyond what a single diocese could provide. The Kansas school and other diocesan educational programs merged into the Bishop Kemper School.Each of the dioceses makes a financial contribution to the school’s operations. Tuition from students also helps fund the school’s budget, including a salary for the dean, faculty stipends and reimbursement for facilities the school uses.The board, including the four ex officio bishops, is responsible for overseeing the life of the school, as well as the work of the dean and faculty.Ten months of classesBishop Kemper School students come to Topeka once a month for 10 months and take one course per weekend. Classes during the current academic year include biblical studies, ministry, theology, Anglicanism, spirituality, church history and ethics.Faculty members are drawn from the four dioceses and include instructors with special expertise in a field. Many are ordained clergy.Students also participate in informal sessions with experienced clergy to explore real-world, practical applications of what they are learning. They also take turns leading worship services and preaching.The cost for ordination-track students is $1,800 a year, and the school suggests it be shared equally between the student, and the student’s parish and diocese.Part of a trendThe Bishop Kemper School isn’t the only multi-diocese educational program in the Episcopal Church. Another is the Iona Initiative, whose structure is different from the Bishop Kemper School. It is based on the Iona School in the Diocese of Texas but now operates under the auspices of the Episcopal Seminary of the Southwest in Austin, Texas.The initiative, which is in the second year of a three-year pilot program, includes Texas and seven other dioceses.Once a month for 10 months, students gather for a weekend in their own diocese where they receive instruction via videos and voice-over PowerPoint presentations that were developed by seminary faculty. Local teachers guide the video courses and teach the practical aspects of the program, such as how to lead worship. It currently provides education only for those seeking ordination as deacons and nonstipendiary priests.Mary MacGregor, who heads the diocese’s Iona School, said programs like theirs and the Bishop Kemper School are what the church needs. She noted that in the Diocese of Wyoming, one of the Iona partners, 90 percent of their priests are bivocational. And the need for local education programs will only grow, she said.“This is the movement that is going on in the church. There will be more internal schools in the Episcopal Church,” she said. And while quality content is essential, it isn’t the only requirement, she said. “We have to have a mix of quality, accessibility and do-ability.”— Melodie Woerman is director of communications for the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas.

There is a course called STETS which covers my diocese and several others which is based at Sarum College. It works very well, and trains people to a high standard. It doesn’t train people to as high a standard as the highest you can achieve at a seminary, but then again, not everyone who goes to seminary has the desire or capacity to achieve the highest standards. In reality, many seminary trained priests leave seminary with the same level of theological education as the average STETS student. Protecting the future of scholar priests and insisting that there should be more of them is an important priority for the Church. Nevertheless, not every priest needs to be a PhD. Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York October 1, 2013 at 6:42 pm As a clergy person that went thru this type of school, I am sick and tired of people saying that we are 2nd or 3rd class clergy. In the eye of the church if you would care to read the canons we are all the same. Also the one of us that have worked outside the church also bring in life long knowledge that some if not all the seminary trained clergy dont have. And somme of us have taken it on your selfs to go and take a class or two at a seminary when we can. So in the future please know what you are talking about.

I am seminary trained with over 25 years experience now developing a new vision, offered and supported by our Bishop, in our diocesan School of Christian Studies. This new version of SCS includes formational/educational/instructional opportunities that integrates 8 weeks of on line learning and reflecting through cohort groups with two three day experiences; one in the beginning of class the second at the end, in order to be in face to face community for discernment and learning. What we are learning is that by developing an excellent faculty who are able to educate, instruct and are in formational relationship through technology , as well as in face to face community, our students are being prepared for an understanding of mission and ministry in the emerging church in a way that allows technology to support and enhance faith development and faith formation. Our plan is to integrate our opportunities with Episcopal seminary offerings to deepen and enhance Anglican identity. A both/and approach, with a majority of the work done locally.

Somos la ofrenda de la viuda, en consecuencia debemos pensar cuidadosamente adónde va esa ofrenda y cómo aprovechamos nuestras relaciones, cómo nos interconectamos con otros recursos y no nos consideramos como el único recurso para nuestras iglesias”.Nelson instó a tener paciencia mientras cada vez más episcopales quieren acudir a las zonas más afectadas y echar una mano. Esas zonas estarán listas para recibir a voluntarios en diferentes momentos, en dependencia de la situación sobre el terreno. “Nadie está bastante actualizado aún”, afirmó ella.Ahora mismo, hay una gran necesidad de pilotos y de aviones que puedan volar en zonas donde no están funcionando los sistemas de tránsito aéreo. “Buscamos vías despejadas y utilizables en que podamos confiar para llevar suministros a las islas”, dijo.Nelson también instó a los episcopales a mantenerse preparados con sus equipajes listos. “Lo digo en serio”, recalcó. “No sabemos lo que va a suceder el año próximo o mañana o con las tormentas de invierno o lo que sea. Luego, piensen en nosotros y en su familia, en su Iglesia, en su diócesis —cómo estarán en contacto unos con otros, cómo [podrían] vivir solos al menos durante dos semanas.“No hay quien venga a librarnos. Debemos estar realmente atentos unos de otros”.El Rdo. Jabriel Ballentine, miembro del Consejo, describió con lágrimas en los ojos cómo Nelson y otros miembros del personal del Fondo Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo lo apoyaron después del huracán Irma mientras él trataba de indagar por el destino de sus padres que viven en Charlotte Amalie en la isla de Santo Tomás [St. Thomas] en las Islas Vírgenes de EE.UU., donde él nació.“Fueron tres días en que yo no sabía si mis padres estaban vivos”, dijo él, pero la gente del Fondo Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo lo acompañó durante ese tiempo. La madre de Ballentine, Rosalie, es miembro de la junta de la agrupación y también es la miembro laico de la Iglesia Episcopal ante el Consejo Consultivo Anglicano.“Muchísimas gracias por todo lo que ustedes hacen”, dijo Ballentine. “Advierto que es un pequeño óbolo, pero extraordinario. Y de esos [óbolos] necesitamos más”.Ballentine también pidió la ayuda del Consejo al recordar que “somos estadounidenses —se supone que lo somos de todos modos— no dejen que se nos olvide que somos episcopales”.El Rdo. John Floberg, miembro del Consejo proveniente de Dakota del Norte y sacerdote supervisor de las tres congregaciones episcopales de la nación sioux de Roca Enhiesta [Standing Rock] recibió una emotiva respuesta del Consejo cuando se levantó y explicó a los miembros cómo las personas en las asambleas indias (powwows) honran a los bailarines cuyo desempeño artístico valoran. “Ponen dinero a los pies del bailarín”, dijo. “Eso es lo que yo voy a hacer”.Floberg caminó hasta el centro del salón, se inclinó y puso dinero en el suelo frente al podio donde Nelson estaba hablando. Sus colegas aplaudieron y siguieron su ejemplo mientras Nelson seguía respondiendo preguntas.El resto de la reuniónLa reunión del Consejo del 18 al 21 de octubre tiene lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo. Las reuniones de comités ocuparán también la mayor parte de la jornada del 20 de octubre y, el 21, cada uno de los comités informará al pleno y someterá resoluciones a la consideración del organismo.Algunos miembros del Consejo están enviando mensajes vía Twitter desde la reunión valiéndose del hashtag #ExCoun.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, más el Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio]. Además, el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados, el Secretario, el Director de Operaciones, el Tesorero y Director de Finanzas tienen asiento y voz, pero no voto.Artículos anteriores de ENS sobre la reunión pueden encontrarse aquí .– La Rda.

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] La hoja de ruta del Movimiento de Jesús de la Iglesia Episcopal ha estado orientando a los episcopales en su respuesta a la cadena de desastres que han sacudido al mundo en los últimos dos meses.“Uno puede verlo en que tenemos varios departamentos del personal del Obispo Primado, las diócesis compañeras,  el  Seguro de la Iglesia, nosotros mismos [en el Fondo Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo]*, episcopales en la diáspora, amigos y buenas personas de fe, todos trabajando juntos”, dijo Abagail Nelson, vicepresidente primera de programas del Fondo Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo  ante el Consejo Ejecutivo el 19 de octubre.Nelson le dio a los miembros del Consejo una perspectiva general del tipo de trabajo que el Fondo Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo respalda mediante lo que ella llamó “esta gran cadena de energía y recursos” que le permite a los episcopales “hacer mucho más de lo que podemos hacer solos”. Esa labor incluye empeños tales como la instalación de herramientas virtuales para permitirles a los episcopales comunicarse entre sí y estar al tanto del trabajo hecho y de la ayuda que se necesita. La organización apoya también iniciativas tales como ayudar a proporcionar agua, lonas, baterías solares, así como cuidado pastoral, y a conectarse con otras agencias de socorro y gubernamentales”.“Uno puede ver atisbos del Movimiento de Jesús cuando los clérigos hablan en las reuniones del gobierno”, dijo ella, explicando que esos clérigos estaban abogando a favor de sus comunidades. “Uno puede verlo en la manera en las personas sin hogar viven en las propiedades de la Iglesia en los cayos de la Florida. Puede verlo en la manera en que intentamos precisar, por mensajes de texto y de viva voz, la mejor forma de prestar apoyo”.Desde principios de agosto, el Fondo Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo ha estado respondiendo, en asociación con episcopales y anglicanos regionales y otras agencias de socorro, a los efectos de:Graves inundaciones en el estado indio de Bengala Occidental luego de intensas lluvias en julio y agosto.El huracán Harvey, que tocó tierra como una tormenta de categoría 4 cerca de Rockport, Texas, en la barrera insular del litoral de Corpus Christi el 25 de agoto, y luego avanzó hacia el noroeste para inundar el área metropolitana de Houston.El huracán Irma, que pulverizó las islas de Sotavento como una tormenta de categoría 5 del 5 al 6 de septiembre para avanzar luego hacia el norte para azotar Florida y Georgia.Un terremoto de primera magnitud, que ocasionó grandes daños, el 19 de septiembre, en la zona central de México, incluidos la Ciudad de México, y en [los estados de] Oaxaca, Guerrero , Morelos y Puebla.El huracán María, de categoría 4 que arrasó las Islas Vírgenes y Puerto Rico el 20 de septiembre.Los incendios forestales en el norte de California que estallaron en la noche del 8 de octubre y que todavía siguen activos.“Yo he estado aquí 18 años y nunca he visto nada como esto”, dijo Nelson refiriéndose a su trabajo con el Fondo Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo. “Estamos aquí viviendo en tiempos extraordinarios y creo que exigen una extraordinaria respuesta de parte nuestra”.

The forgotten voices of race records: Pullman Porters, the Rev TT…

first_img Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your name here Black History MonthJerry Zolten, Associate Professor of Communication of Arts and Sciences at Pennsylvania State University and first published on theconversation.com.In the 1920s and 1930s, record sales of black artists were very lucrative for the music industry. As a June 1926 article from Talking Machine World explained:The Negro trade is…itself…an enormously profitable occupation for the retailer who knows his way about…. The segregation of the Negro population has enabled dealers to build up a trade catering to this race exclusively.Yet record companies routinely took advantage of the more unschooled, vernacular performers – especially black ones, who were already denied access to broader markets. It was standard operating procedure back in the days of “race music” – the name given to recordings by black artists that were marketed to the black buying public.“Some will rob you with a six-gun…and some with a fountain pen.” So said Woody Guthrie in his song “Pretty Boy Floyd.”Bottom line: if record companies could get away with it, there was no bottom line. No negotiated contract to sign. No publishing. No royalties. Wham bam thank you man. Take a low-ball flat fee and hit the road. Anonymity was also implicit in the deal, so many black artists were forgotten, their only legacy the era’s brittle shellac disks that were able to withstand the wear of time.‘Some will rob you with a six-gun…and some with a fountain pen’ – record companies like Paramount routinely exploited black musicians in the 1920s. Wikimedia CommonsOne of the most prominent early race labels was Paramount Records, which, between 1917 and 1932, recorded a breathtaking cross-section of seminal African-American artists.In 2013 I learned that Jack White of Third Man Records (in partnership with Dean Blackwood’s Revenant Records) would be putting together a compilation of Paramount’s historic recordings. The project would be a grand collaboration of two deluxe volumes that would contain a stunning 1,600 tracks.I was part of a team of researchers and writers tasked with unearthing new information about the featured artists and their songs. For me, it was an opportunity to put a face on some of Paramount’s more enigmatic artists. Listening to track after track, a zeitgeist began to coalesce. As voices from the grooves accrued to tell a story of a collective black experience, I came to see these performances as cumulative cultural memory – each track a brushstroke in a painting of a long-forgotten landscape.Here’s a taste of what I found.Pullman Porters QuartetteThe Pullman Company, manufacturers of railroad passenger cars, was magnanimous towards its African-American workforce. Among other benefits, they provided in-house musical instruction, which included a cappella quartet singing lessons.The Pullman Company employed a large number of African Americans as porters.Flickr/antefixus U.E., CC BY-NC-NDThe Pullman quartets, I learned, were a franchise: multiple configurations of singers performing concurrently under the company banner. They put on concerts, either performing live on the radio, or on long haul train routes as a form of passenger entertainment. The men who made the records were billed as the “President’s Own” – the working Pullman porters considered the company’s premier lineup.In the late 1920s, The Pullman Porters Quartette of Chicago recorded a number of sides for Paramount. One tune was “Jog-a-Long Boys,” where they sang of sad roosters and being turned down by widow Brown, the “fattest gal in town.” The chorus went:Jog-a-long, boys, jog-a-long, boys,Be careful when you smile,Do the latest style,But jog-a-long, jog-a-long boys.Jog-a-long, boys, jog-a-long, boys,Don’t fool with google eyes,That would not be wise,But jog-a-long, jog-a-long boys.At first, it seemed as if it were no more than a silly ditty performed in upbeat counterpoint harmony. Then it hit me: they were making light of a horrific reality – specifically, that a black man who dared to smile or even look askance at a white woman was putting himself in grave danger.Look your best, but don’t forget your place…and just jog along, boys.‘Jog-a-long Boys,’ by The Pullman Porters Quartet of Chicago.Horace GeorgeHorace George of Horace George’s Jubilee Harmonizers was a showman and an opportunist, a versatile musician who performed in whatever style sold, whether it was novelty gospel, blues, comedy or jazz.His gospel group cut one record for Paramount in 1924, but he first surfaced as early as 1906, advertised in the Indianapolis Freeman as “the great clarinetist, comedian, and vocalist.” A few years later, George found himself in Seattle as the “Famous Colored Comedian…who gives correct images,” and later as the “Man with the Clarinet” in a touring black vaudeville troupe, the Great Dixieland Spectacle Company.In the late 1910s, a black newspaper – the Indianapolis Freeman – called Horace George “a novelty on any bill.” The novelty? He could play three clarinets at once!Rev TT RoseBeyond the rollicking piano-driven gospel sides he cut for Paramount in the late 1920s, nothing was known of Rev T T Rose. Rose’s “Goodbye Babylon” was the title track of Dust-to-Digital’s 2004 Grammy-nominated collection, Goodbye, Babylon. It was also inspiration for a rock ‘n’ roll tune by the Black Keys. And Rose’s recording of “If I Had My Way, I’d Tear This Building Down” – later performed by artists ranging from Rev. Gary Davis to the Grateful Dead – is one of the earliest known recorded versions of that song.Rev Rose’s personal story was the most heartening of all. He lived in Springfield, Illinois, and I located his 90-plus-year-old daughter Dorothy, who described her father as a man on a mission to end racism and institutionalized segregation.As a child, Rose had witnessed the aftermath of the infamous 1908 Springfield Race Riots, an event that precipitated the formation of the NAACP. In the late 1920s Rose moved from Chicago to Springfield, in order to minister the city’s black community.In an oral history recording, Rev Rose described Springfield as “just really a type of Southern town” with an “overpowering resentment of the Negro…distrust and the fear that the Negro might someday become stronger.” When he returned to Springfield, he observed that the time that had elapsed since the race riots was “a very short span of time to erase all the scars and the prejudices and the hate that was engendered…in that very unfortunate affair.”It was a hate, he continued, that “Kind of hung like a cloud from an atomic bomb over the whole neighborhood” causing the black citizens of Springfield to go “into themselves quite a bit.”After his short recording career with Paramount in the late 1920s, Rev Rose went on to become a regional bishop in the Church of God in Christ. He recorded because he thought songs could both uplift and spread messages of hope and perseverance in the struggle for Civil Rights. When he sang “If I Had My Way,” it’s clear that the building he wanted to tear down was no less than the edifice of racism.Lord, if I had my way,Oh Lord, if I, if I had my way,In this wicked world, if I had my way,God, knows I’d tear this building down.‘If I Had My Way,’ by Rev TT Rose.

Ana María and Manuel, our clients, made the decision of spending as much time as possible in their summerhouse in Sant Mori. Located between Figueres and Girona, Sant Mori is a rural village with irregular geometry, which offers a characteristic Mediterranean landscape scenery to its inhabitants, bounded by fields and forests.Save this picture!© Salva LópezThe Blasco-Nicolau family was already using the house regularly during the hottest months of the year and therefore, the swimming pool has always been an important feature to their summer lifestyle. Nevertheless, its use was mainly focused on the water area, as the adjacent space was not comfortable despite its appeal.Save this picture!© Salva LópezThe idea was to bring back the space’s vitality with the purpose of making it the house’s exterior heart: a meeting point, an exterior room for the family. A place under a canopy’s shade, where three generations would coexist, chat and share moments.Save this picture!© Salva LópezThe pool area used to be a place of joy and gathering for the family in summer. Due to the pasing of time and to low maintenance, it ended up being a cold, uncomfortable and neglected place. Lying under the sun is one of the pleasures of open spaces and a canopy is a haven of shade if you want to get away from the sun.). We should return this area the identity it had one day.Save this picture!© Salva LópezFacing east, the swimming pool was surrounded, on two of its sides, by the façade of the main room of the house and by the cold and hard neighbour’s common facade. On the contrary, the remaining sides were surrounded by vegetation with views towards Sant Mori’s fields and forests.Save this picture!© Salva LópezWe had a clear answer:: Generate– a new facade with dominant horizontality  on  the existing common facade, in order to give this space a sense of unity.Save this picture!Plan 1Once again, the project’s challenge was how to achieve  the objectives using all resources given and reducing the visual impact as much as possible. The functional necessity to build a large storeroom with a facade to the outdoor area  wasn`t going to  be  an obstacle but a  defining elements of the project’s strategy. The recycling of some extra floor tiles from a previous project carried out by the owners was also going  to sum up . Minimum investment in all resources, maximum transformation in the spaces revitalization. A contained architecture for an intense lifestyle.  Save this picture!© Salva LópezThe project starts from an already existing piece  (50×50 cm, with open joints) that helps to organize the project’s development, creating a very structured grid pattern where alignment lines and modular order are respected. The noblest areas, such as the solarium and the living room, contrast with a solid wood pavement, which gives the necessary warmth to the place.Save this picture!© Salva LópezCanopy and storeroom share a common roof: a single supportive element, that rests on a concrete wall. The structure is formed by two metal rectangles and follows the project’s key principle:  8mx2m storeroom  formed by UPN-240 and 12,5mx3m canopy formed by UPN-300, joined together on one side by UPN-200. This connecting line is in charge of assuming everything the project demands: a subtle edge yet complex beam (formed by three profiles that help to reduce the sag or deflection), collects the sliding doors that compose the facade of the storeroom at its lower edge and produces the gutter at its upper profile. One single element with three accomplished objectives.Save this picture!DetailThe light belts of the canopy project a  sequence of changeable  shadows  on the floor, which reflect the passing of  time. Proposal of minimum intervention: A simple horizontal element, which generates shade and transforms  dramatically  the interior/exterior perception. It is not under the sunrays where architecture is experienced, but under the shade’s shelter. Consequently,  walls or openings aren’t limits but a subtle and vibrant barrier created by its own projected shadows.Save this picture!© Salva LópezThe project Blasco-Nicolau is an example of Mesura; of how, from a small intervention it is possible to generate an enormous impact on architecture’s use and enjoyment. An effort to reduce what is strictly functional and structural to achieve the highest quality of the space. The smart use of all available materials as well as the way in which they are carefully selected, leads to a transforming and at the same time calm and restrained intervention.El uso inteligente de los materiales disponibles, así como su cuidadosa puesta en obra, permite una actuación transformadora pero, a su vez, tranquila y sobria.Save this picture!© Salva LópezProject gallerySee allShow lessMichael Maltzan Designs “Experimental” Arts Center at Rice UniversityArchitecture NewsUrban Agency + Group-K Design Wood Experience Center on Jeju Island, South KoreaUnbuilt Project Share Projectslast_img
