I could have named others, but he was the one who came to my mind. The point being expressed is more important than anyone’s name. Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Alfonso Camiwet says: Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Smithfield, NC February 21, 2015 at 12:39 pm My Ministry unknowing to me is to study cancer first from labs research first on breast and ovary with Mary, the Virgin Mary. From there I began to study the research of the cell cycle that governs all tissue types of cells that divide. That study found me the discovery labs on p 53 protein the protein that is mutated in 50% of all sufferring forms of cancer disease regardless of tissue type. Thus p 53 protein science is the most important research in modern cancer labs.. And after studying it I asked Mary and Jesus for the cure. Rdioactive cysteine is th cure of cancer I sent wrod to all major cancer institutes and many churches including our Primate Bishop and the Archbishop of Canterbury. Then i did something else I studied radiation and cysteine in healthy cells and tissue discovering that the sunshine is the major source of virtamin D and that a vitamn called PLP or vitamin B 6 is the co enzyme used to allow cysteine synthesis. These two vitamins actually prevent many many cancers and are the most prophylactic form of cancer medicine. Anyway it reveals the cure of cancer in healthy tissue is also the best way to prevent it. Now it up to the Love of God and genius of medical research to end this dragon forever. Let us pray cancer is off the earth this Easter.

Flint, PhD says: Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Hopkinsville, KY February 18, 2015 at 3:37 pm Lent is perfect time to reflect where we stand firmly, in case we fall in a situation with a hanging sword over our head as we saw in the picture, 21 Egyptian Christians kneeling down at the sea shore in Libya and waiting for Jesus to come and pick their souls up in Paradise, as it had happened to St. Stephen in 1st century. It is sad to know that there was no message publicly from our PB to console Christians at this time of trial. Our consolation comes from words of God as it is written: “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me” (Matthew 5:11).Our heartfelt prayer remains for bereaved Christian families in Egypt to get strength from God and May their souls rest in peace with our Lord Jesus Christ in Heaven! Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Featured Events February 21, 2015 at 12:08 am My parish’s Ash Wednesday service was predominantly filled with college age practicing Episcopalians. The worm will turn again someday folks. Be strong and wait on the LORD. February 16, 2015 at 7:30 pm This message would elucidate more about Ash Wednesday if it mentioned grief and repentance concerning sin, topics central to this holy day from the time of its inception.In the Bible we learn that placing ashes on oneself reflects grief and mourning which are often connected to personal awareness of sin and heartfelt turning from those acts of wrongdoing (please read Job 30:19; 42:6; Daniel 9:3-5; Jonah 3:6; and Matthew 11:21). The ashes from the ancient ritual of the heifer (Numbers 19) were used in purification rites. Because of Jesus who came to fulfill the Law (not to invalidate it, Matthew 5:17) we live in a better situation as taught by the book of Hebrews (9:13-14) which gladly affirms that if the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on defiled persons were effective for purifying them outwardly, how much more will the blood (i.e., sacrificial death) of Christ purify our consciences from sinful acts that lead to death so that we may worship and serve the living God!We are all mortal, frail, and beset with sin but this sober truth which we rightly admit is hardly a “negative” one. Because of Jesus’ death to effect genuine forgiveness and reconciliation we can admit and grieve for our sins, pray for forgiveness, receive God’s remedy through Christ and thus turn from what harms us (and others) to live in humility, gratitude, and true hope of participating in God’s loving work of redemption. This is Good News indeed!Permission granted to place this preceding message in every church bulletin. Posted Feb 10, 2015 Comments are closed.

Some accept the ashes to demonstrate their piety, like hypocrites; some accept it as a visible reminder of their own brokenness and need for reflection and redemption.Lent will be more interesting for me this year. Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC February 17, 2015 at 3:21 pm Accepting that we are dust and will return to dust is a reminder of our humanity. That we are frail, imperfect and weak; we are sinners. But through His grace, mercy and pity; the human flesh can also rise to heights of service and perfection if only for more life to be enjoyed by many. Hence from misdeeds and error, we always repent and return to the Lord for forgiveness. Then rise with Him for clearer, cleaner, wiser acts of service celebrating life. Then as we go nearer to dust, we can proudly see and say, my Lord and my God.

The ABC and the Pope have already stepped to the plate, but what about our liberal Episcopal Church? What say you? Did the radical Islamic extremest behead Egyptian citizens or Egyptian Christians? Both statements would be correct, but in this case they were murdered because of their Christian Faith, not their national status. The ABC and Pope said Christians martyrs – what does our PB say?Episcopalians deserve to hear from their PB, their Bishops and their Clergy on this issue. Where do we stand? Whether you have noticed or not, it is time to take a stand on this and several other issues confronting Christians in the society. There is a group here in America, the Church needs to confront, The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist group, that keeps taking Christian children and teenagers religious liberties away from them through legal intimidation. Shouldn’t we be standing with our kids to protect them from this intimidation.Dr. Franklin Graham is addressing all these issues, others are addressing all these issues. It is time for us (I THINK) to address all these issues. I hope other Episcopalians will express their views. How much do we value the Gospel of God and the message that Jesus is the only way to God? For us Jesus has come and for the Jews, Jesus is coming. Compromising God is not a good position to take. In seminary, I met many survivors of the Holocaust and their stern warning NEVER AGAIN. Looks like again is upon us.

That word in English comes from an Old English word that means “to lengthen,” and it’s a reminder of the days getting longer as we move toward summer out of the dark of winter.But in a number of other languages, particularly Spanish and French, the word for “Lent” reflects “forty days,” “cuaresma.” Forty days of wandering in the desert, forty days of Jesus out in the desert.It’s also about a journey.  And it’s a journey that is about enlightenment if we’re willing to think about it that way.Lent is an ancient tradition of solidarity and preparation for those who look forward to Baptism at the Easter Vigil.  It has always been a time for prayer and study, fasting, self-denial, and alms-giving, sharing what we have with those who do not have.  Prayer is an opportunity to reflect on who walks with us in the desert, who brings light into the world. Study is an opportunity to do the same kinds of things looking at the history of our tradition, where have human beings found light and direction in their journey through this world.  Fasting and self-denial are an inward-reflection on what it is that keeps us in the dark, or what it is that keeps us directionless, or that keeps us overly self-focused.  And it becomes an invitation to turn outward and share what we have with those who have not.  To build solidarity among God’s people and the rest of the earth.One of the most memorable Ash Wednesdays I ever spent was in San Jose, Costa Rica, in a school for children. I was asked to place ashes on the foreheads of toddlers.  It was a provocative experience in the deepest sense, reminding very small children that they are mortal.That cross that comes on our foreheads on Ash Wednesday is a reminder of the cross that’s put there at Baptism.  You are sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism and marked as Christ’s own forever.  The cross that comes at Ash Wednesday is a reminder that you are dust and to dust we shall return, that we share that dust with every other human being who has ever walked this planet, that we share that dust with the stars and the planets, that we share that dust with all that has been created.  We are made for relationship with creator and creation.Lent and cuaresma is a journey to walk toward that light.  May it be a blessed one this year.The Most Rev.

The house is situated on a flat land of 1,500 square meters in a residential area within the city of Mendoza, Argentina. A typical continental climatic zone, with large weather amplitudes between stations where natural breeze comes mostly from the South.The project is an opportunity to rethink the suburban houses facilities in emerging environments in contemporary Latin American urban spaces.

Midwest Crop Tour Estimates Lower than USDA

first_img The Pro Farmer Midwest Crop Tour concluded on Thursday. Using that crop tour data, Pro Farmer has projected corn yield at 163.3 bushels per acre, 6.2 bu/acre lower than USDA’s most recent projection at 169.5 bushels per acre. They estimate total corn production at 13.358 billion bushels. USDA’s most recent projection was and 13.875 billion bushels.In soybeans, Pro Farmer is projecting 46.1 bushels per acre and 3.497 billion bushels. USDA projects 48.5 bushels per acre and 3.845 billion bushels.Pro Farmer editor Brian Grete says crop immaturity across the corn belt was a major factor in coming up with these projections.“The biggest differences in maturity were in the far Eastern Corn Belt, Ohio, Indiana, parts of Illinois, South Dakota was an immature crop there as well. Iowa and Nebraska, they were a little bit more mature, but I wouldn’t say anything was more advanced than what it normally would be.”Indiana’s estimated corn yield according to Pro Farmer is 161.46 bu/acre. USDA is projecting an Indiana corn yield of 166 bu/acre, down 23 bushels from a year ago.

TEXRail station to expand after ‘overwhelmingly positive’ response

first_imgDesaray Hickombottom What’s included in first-year dorm rooms Facebook ReddIt What we’re reading: Sen. Bernie Sanders announces 2020 presidential campaign printThe TEXRail station in Fort Worth has been fully operating for two months and is already looking to expand.Board members of the Trinity Metro credit the “overwhelmingly positive” response to the luxury of leaving a car behind and not having to worry about traffic.“The ride is consistent and timely without the risk of getting stuck in traffic on the highway,” said Laura Hanna, the director of communications for Trinity Metro. “Passengers have the opportunity to sit back and relax instead of driving and worrying about what time they will arrive.” Passengers of the Trinity Metro range from tourists, families and friends taking day trips, and employees who work along the 27-mile train route. The company gains ridership from commuting employees thanks to its EasyRide commuter program, which gives a 25 percent discount to companies who enroll. “DFW Airport alone has more than 62,000 employees, and we have been contacted by airline employees and others along the route who are interested in commuting on TEXRail,” Hanna said. The TEXRail station in Fort Worth has been operating since the end of January. Image courtesy of Trinity Metro.TEXRail’s opening weekend had 11,114 passengers. The daily average has fluctuated since then, but board members don’t doubt the success of this company.“Ridership has declined as we anticipated, but we have no doubt that TEXRail will continue to be a popular choice for North Texans, tourists and travelers,” said a board member. While competition may be stiff with car services such as Uber and Lyft, the Trinity Metro expects their demand to stay stable due to their “premium service at a fraction of a cost of the on-demand services.” A one-way ticket is $2.50 and a day pass is $5. The day pass gives riders access to all of Trinity Metro’s rail and bus services in Tarrant County.The station is looking to expand by adding four different routes: the Medical District, TCU/Berry Street, Hulen/Granbury and Summer Creek.  Hanna said the plan is to extend the line one station at a time, so the routes would be developed in four phases. The first phase, the Medical District, is in the planning stage with no specific timeline. Board members said this train includes a sleek European design with a model the first of its kind in the United States.Other features include vertical bike racks, level boarding, seat back tray tables, USB charging ports and a designated quiet car. “What also sets us apart is that we have conductor who is in the train with passengers throughout the trip,” Hanna said. “The TEXRail experience is not like any other option in the DFW area.”The Trinity Metro is open seven days a week and during holidays. Bus fares, schedules and more information can be found on their website.

However, a study by ProPublica suggested that their enforcement efforts were not living up to those promises. ProPublica stated that Facebook ads exclude a wide variety of groups, including “African Americans, mothers of high school kids, people interested in wheelchair ramps, Jews, expats from Argentina, and Spanish speakers.”Citibank Fined for ViolationCitibank has been fined $25 million by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) for violating the Fair Housing Act. The OCC on Tuesday assessed the civil money penalty against Citibank on account of “certain control weaknesses related to its Relationship Loan Pricing (RLP) program designed to provide eligible mortgage loan customers either a credit to closing costs or an interest rate reduction.” The civil money penalty will be paid to the U.S. Treasury. The release by OCC also stated that as a result of these control weaknesses, some bank borrowers did not receive the RLP benefit for which they were eligible and were adversely affected on the basis of their race, color, national origin, or sex. Citibank has formulated a plan to reimburse all customers who did not receive the appropriate RLP benefit. Furthermore, to prevent future violations, the bank is taking corrective measures, according to OCC. Citibank will provide reimbursement to approximately 24,000 customers in the amount of approximately $24 million as a result of the bank’s failures and control weaknesses.

As we prepare to celebrate Diversity Month this April—to encourage opportunities to include and appreciate different perspectives, cultures, and lifestyles—a pair of headlines today stand in contrast to remind us that many challenges still exist in this area. Facebook Announces Changes to Housing AdsAs reported by NPR, Facebook, after facing years of lawsuits on account of alleged discrimination by allowing advertisers to display their ads to a select few, has announced that changes in its ad platform will be implemented by the end of the year. DS News previously reported on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) announcement that they were filing a formal complaint against Facebook for violating the Fair Housing Act by allowing landlords and homesellers to use its advertising platform to engage in housing discrimination. HUD had claimed that Facebook enabled advertisers to control which users receive housing-related ads based upon the recipient’s race, color, religion, sex, familial status, national origin, disability, and/or zip code. It further alleged that Facebook then invites advertisers to express unlawful preferences by offering discriminatory options, allowing them to effectively limit housing options for these protected classes under the guise of “targeted advertising.” According to NPR article, Facebook officials said “we can do better” and announced other ad changes would include:Anyone who wants to run housing, employment or credit ads will no longer be allowed to target by age, gender, or zip codeAdvertisers offering housing, employment, and credit opportunities will have a much smaller set of targeting categories to use in their campaigns overallWe’re building a tool so you can search for and view all current housing ads in the US targeted to different places across the country, regardless of whether the ads are shown to you Citibank facebook 2019-03-19 Donna Joseph Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more
