McConnell announced Dec. 4 that he plans to retire in the spring of 2021.McConnell has led the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh since 2012.  He was elected by diocesan lay leaders and clergy in April of that year and was consecrated and installed in the following October.“We have been through so much and accomplished so much, in what seems to me the twinkling of an eye,” the bishop wrote in a letter announcing his plans to the diocese, which currently numbers slightly more than 8,600 members among 36 participating congregations.McConnell said he would remain in charge until he hands over his crozier, the symbol of a bishop’s authority, to a successor on April 24, 2021, which will occur nearly nine years to the day that he was chosen as Pittsburgh’s bishop.When he was installed, McConnell became the first permanent bishop after a period of division and rebuilding that began when a former bishop, many clergy and their congregations left the diocese and The Episcopal Church.During McConnell’s tenure, most of the outstanding legal disputes with the former members were resolved. A settlement concerning property use was hailed locally and nationally for the way it recognized the validity of each others’ claims and set a structure for building new relationships.On social issues, McConnell placed an emphasis on racial reconciliation. His “Church Without Walls” launched a series of grassroots interactions between members of predominantly white congregations and those of historic African American heritage.He has been active in civic engagement, developing relationships with elected officials and being equally comfortable working with corporate directors and walking alongside union protesters.Within the church locally, the bishop has sought to strengthen the preparation for ministry for both clergy and the laity, principally by helping shape the first-of-its-kind Anglican-Episcopal Studies track at the Presbyterian-affiliated Pittsburgh Theological Seminary, where he serves as a member of the Board of Trustees, and also through the diocese’s Love+Teach+Heal Academy, an ongoing program of lay formation.Given the size of the Pittsburgh diocese, McConnell was able to spend time with each congregation every year, and he worked toward building trust among clergy and congregations that span a wide variety of sizes, geographical settings and theological perspectives.McConnell’s latest initiative involves a multiyear process aimed at restructuring diocesan governance and encouraging parishes in their efforts in communication, new lay-led ministries and in knowing the needs of their local communities. The bishop said these initiatives will continue.“I assure you that I will be completely engaged in the life of the diocese until the moment I am no longer your bishop,” he wrote in his Dec. 4 letter.Next steps in succession plan The Pittsburgh diocese will soon begin a discernment and search process in which Episcopal priests from around the country will be invited to consider a call to be the next bishop. A local search committee, composed of laity and clergy, will narrow the field to a select group of finalists. Those nominees will be publicly identified by late summer or mid-autumn of 2020.The new bishop will be chosen by the clergy and lay representatives of each parish at a special diocesan electing convention, scheduled for Nov. 21, 2020.He or she will be consecrated by the Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church, on April 24, 2021.Following his retirement, McConnell and his wife, Betsy, plan to reside in New Hampshire. About the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh:  www.episcopalpgh.orgBishop McConnell’s retirement letter:  https://www.episcopalpgh.org/a-letter-to-the-diocese-from-the-bishop/ Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

One house, five different volumes.House Kerkstraat is situated on a generous plot near to a main entrance of the village. The all new house replaces a former dilapidated house which due to reorganization and transformation over time eventually ended up in the south corner of the plot. Legislation dictated the new house should be built on the same position.Save this picture!© Stijn PoelstraTherefore the main volume needed to be positioned in the far south corner nearby the heavy traffic intersection. In order to establish the desired privacy and reduce the traffic noise the front has a somewhat closed character. Windows have been kept small en are revealed in the brickwork façade which has been given extra physical mass to absorb traffic noise.Save this picture!© Stijn PoelstraStarting in the main and first brickwork volume the different spaces move from the main volume towards the back. Spaces are accommodated in individual and linked volumes. The living and office are situated in the first brickwork volume at the front side. The wooden volume behind accommodates the kitchen with folding doors towards the garden and offers a view on the rear access on the other side.Save this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!First floor planIn the third volume which is also in brickwork the dining is positioned which is characterized by large precisely positioned openings to establish both intimacy and a relation with the garden. The garage is situated in a modest wooden volume which displays affinity with a wooden barn. At the far end almost in the middle of the garden close to the pool the relax space is situated.Save this picture!© Stijn PoelstraAll volumes are characterized by archetype pitched roofs. A shape which is common for houses and barns. Inspiration for proportions and materials is derived from the functional needs of the spaces. For example the kitchen is in the wooden and light volume with floor to ceiling glass folding doors in order to create an outdoor atmosphere inside. Connecting the brickwork introvert and private living and dining spaces.Save this picture!© Stijn PoelstraAt the first floor the same wooden volume connects the bedrooms for both children and parents in the brickwork volumes. The relax space is interpreted as a wooden garden house. The all glass sliding doors disappear in the walls when open which emphasize the open garden house and terrace experience.Save this picture!© Stijn PoelstraThrough the fact that the spaces meander towards the back of the house interesting exterior spaces with patio like quality originate. A rear access patio for daily use car and bicycle storage. A terrace directly adjacent to the kitchen and a small patio which creates a physical distance between living and relaxing and therefore allow separate and parallel usage. An entrance axis with line of sight is cut through the volumes allowing access from the access patio through the entrance area and scullery.Save this picture!© Stijn PoelstraProject gallerySee allShow lessRandom Imaginations: A Collection of Illustrated MusingsArchitecture BooksMAD’s First Built Project in Europe Nears CompletionArchitecture News Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/921451/house-kerkstraat-denkkamer Clipboard HVAC: Area:  358 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project House Kerkstraat / DenkkamerSave this projectSaveHouse Kerkstraat / Denkkamercenter_img Manufacturers: GRAPHISOFT, Metaglas, Vogelensangh brickwork, Adobe, Nelskamp Peter Verschuren, Dennis van de Rijdt Architects: Denkkamer Area Area of this architecture project 2018 The Netherlands Photographs:  Stijn Poelstra Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Installatietechniek Richard Kerste “COPY” Year:  “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/921451/house-kerkstraat-denkkamer Clipboard CopyAbout this officeDenkkamerOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBeek en DonkThe NetherlandsPublished on July 23, 2019Cite: “House Kerkstraat / Denkkamer” 23 Jul 2019.

Domestic violence: ‘The epidemic within the pandemic’

first_img“My husband won’t let me leave the house” has become an all-too-familiar cry for help since the mandatory lockdown was instituted in early March — not just in the United States, but all over the world. Domestic violence has become a stealth epidemic within the COVID-19 pandemic. So much so that the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres issued a call the week of April 6 for governments to address domestic violence as a key part of their pandemic response.Anita Bhatia, a deputy executive director of U.N. Women, told Time magazine, “The very technique we are using to protect people from the virus can perversely impact victims of domestic violence.” While social distancing and isolation are absolutely essential, she added, they “provide an opportunity for abusers to unleash more violence.” (March 18) According to the World Health Organization, 1 out of 3 women in the world experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, making it “the most widespread, but the least reported, human rights abuses.” The WHO notes that while women make up the majority of victims, LGBTQ2S+ people also face elevated rates. But during times of crises, like wars and natural disasters, the risk of gender-based violence escalates. One study showed that after Hurricane Harvey in 2017, domestic violence soared in Houston. “The stressors of being out of work, being at home, losing everything — that spiked our violence,” reported Chau Nguyen, the chief public strategies officer for the Houston Area Women’s Center. “You’re going to see it more and more.” (CNN, April 4) A research report by a consortium which includes Johns Hopkins University concludes there could be 31 million new cases of domestic violence globally if coronavirus lockdowns continue for six more months. (www.unfpa.org)Surge of domestic violence cases in U.S. After the first coronavirus death was reported at the end of February and nonessential businesses began to close in mid-March, reports of domestic violence began to increase in cities around the country. Of 22 law enforcement agencies that responded to NBC News’ request for data, 18 said they saw a rise in March. For example, Houston reported 300 more calls, about a 20 percent increase, while Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C., had 517 additional calls compared to last year, an 18 percent jump.One of the first states to pay attention to that surge was New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office that announced the number of cases grew 18 percent from February to March, after New York’s “Pause” order went into effect. It went up 30 percent in April compared to last year. (ABCNews, May 28) Cuomo’s office launched a task force at the end of May to find “innovative solutions to this crisis.” Headed by Melissa DeRosa, his secretary and leader of the New York State Council on Women and Girls, the task force is charged with developing recommendations “to help women who are stuck in dangerous situations.” How abusers use COVID-19 to assert power and control   In early April the National Domestic Violence Hotline noted that it had received more than 2,300 calls since mid-March in which COVID-19 was cited as a reason for abuse. Violent partners were leveraging it “to further isolate, coerce or increase fear in the relationship,” reported Katie Ray-Jones, CEO of the NDVH. “Abuse is about power and control,” the hotline summarizes. Isolation is the primary technique abusers use to assert power and control over their partner and children. Sheltering-at-home and widespread job loss mean the entire family is trapped in limited space with limited finances. Such conditions only create a pressure cooker of uncertainty, which triggers abusers. They respond to this “perfect storm” with more beatings and psychological torture. The NDVH cites ways COVID-19 is used to increase control. Abusers withhold necessary things like hand sanitizer or disinfectants. They use misinformation to frighten or prevent survivors from seeking medical attention if they have symptoms, like hyping the risk of becoming infected in an emergency room. Abusers may stress that it’s not safe to use public transportation as a way to keep survivors away from family or their children or grandchildren. One woman reported her abuser threatened to throw her into the street so she would become infected. Another abuser beat a survivor because he was sure she was trying to infect him. The hotline advises survivors to do three things: to create a safety plan to remain safe in the relationship, to leave or what to do after leaving; to practice self-care for health and wellness; and to reach out for help by maintaining social connections online or over the phone. Meanwhile, the struggle for all women and gender-nonconforming people to have safe, healthy, happy and fulfilled lives continues. The coronavirus is forcing all the inequalities and injustices in capitalist society to the surface, like deadly racism, which has disproportionately taken the lives of so many Black and Brown people. Only by tearing down patriarchy, all forms of hatred and bigotry, and class society will we achieve the freedom we need to flourish and thrive under socialism. Survivors are encouraged to contact the NDVH at 800-799-7233 or text LOVEIS to 22522. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Even with Irrigation a 30 Percent Yield Reduction in Northern Indiana

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE The farmers at Tom Farms in northern Indiana have a pretty good idea about growing conditions in that part of the state in 2012. The operation is based in Kosciusco County and handles 18,000 acres that spans an additional six counties. Given the moisture deficits this year, Kip Tom calls it a tough year.“If we look at the 20 different rain stations that we collect data from, from April 1st to August 30th we averaged a little over 9 inches of rain. Typically we usually see 15-18 inches of rain in that time frame if we look at our averages. So yields were impacted.”Tom expects to finish harvest this week and yields will be off by about 30 percent. Not good, but better than previous years of drought.“If I would go back to some similar drought years like 1974 we’ve seen a much larger impact with 70-80 percent reductions, so let’s face it, technologies, biotechnology, the seeds and genetics we have today, some of that advanced agronomic solutions that we’re using today to operate our farm, help us weather the storm a little. Mother Nature still holds the trump card but we’re doing the best we can to pull levers to increase yields.”Tom Farms irrigates about half of its acres, but 2012 presented a real challenge for those units to keep up with the level of moisture needed.“We had some units we started the 20th of May and never shut off until the end of August. You know in Indiana and a lot of the Midwest, when we design an irrigation system we design it to get a little supplemental rainfall along the way. This summer we were dealing with Tucson, Arizona type weather and it was just very difficult to keep up.”Tom also has about 4,000 acres in Argentina where planting season is nearing the end. But he confirms it is wet there.“We’re very wet and have been that way for about 3 weeks now,” he told HAT. “There is some corn going in the ground and a few people getting beans in the ground. Everybody is a little concerned about some of the disease issues in the wheat with this much moisture right now. But typically we plant corn in September-October. In years like this farmers down there are starting to back off a little bit and plant in November and December, so I guess it’s not too late to plant corn. They can still get some in and get good yields, but yet it is wet.”Tom was with the nation’s farm broadcasters last week in Kansas City promoting the annual AgConnect Expo. It is scheduled for late January in KC but will be held in Indianapolis in 2015.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/11/Kip-Tom-harvest-update.mp3|titles=Kip Tom harvest update] Even with Irrigation a 30 Percent Yield Reduction in Northern Indiana Previous articleIndiana CCA Conference to Cover Drought and 2013Next articleSeed Consultants 11:53 update with Gary Wilhelmi 11/15/2012 Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – Nov 14, 2012 Home Indiana Agriculture News Even with Irrigation a 30 Percent Yield Reduction in Northern Indiana Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Women’s tennis power past Dartmouth

Head coach Lee Walker said the Frogs played nearly a complete match with a sharp doubles performance and a sweep across all six courts in the opening set of singles, but the team began to struggle as the match dragged on.“It’s kind of like boxing that in if you get distracted, you can get hit pretty hard,” Walker said. In doubles, the Frogs quickly gained leads across all three courts with Chloe Hule and Stevie Kennedy finishing first with a 6-1 win. Ellie Douglas and Aleksa Cveticanin clinched the doubles point on the top court, making it the duo’s sixth straight doubles victory. Douglas and Cveticanin jumped to the No. 27 spot in the latest Oracle/Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) doubles rankings. Douglas carried her momentum into singles with a demanding 6-0, 6-0 victory on the top court. Douglas also came in at No. 112 in the Oracle/ITA singles rankings. “Ellie is easily 20 in the country,” Walker said. “She didn’t play in the fall season, but she could climb all the way between now and May.” Fellow first-year Mercedes Aristegui added her 15th singles win with her straight set victory over the Big Green’s Nina Paripovic.  “Mercedes is great, and she brings great energy to each match,” Walker said. “She’s a great athlete and we just need to keep her focused.”Walker said he noticed the team beginning to check out as the Frogs lost some leads in the second set of singles. “When you win the first set, you have to reset and completely disregard it. It’s like you’re starting a brand new match; for some people, that’s really hard to do,” Walker said. Cveticanin and Kate Paulus ultimately pulled out wins despite a three-set battle on courts two and four. Walker said Cveticanin was battling a left leg injury after accidentally slipping into the splits during a match last weekend.First-year Addy Guevara secured the match victory in a hard-fought 6-3, 6-4 win on court six. Up next, TCU will host Texas Tech Saturday to continue conference play. The Red Raiders edged the Frogs in a 4-3 win in Lubbock in February. “It’s been hard to keep the girls focused on these past four matches because they’ve been so fired up for Tech, but I’m glad we got these wins,” Walker said.
