England: Synod approves next steps for women to become bishops

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Washington, DC Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA [Church of England press release] The General Synod of the Church of England has Nov. 20 approved a package of measures as the next steps to enable women to become bishops.In the debate in the morning session the synod welcomed the package of proposals outlined in the report of the Steering Committee for the Draft Legislation of Women in the Episcopate (GS 1924).The Steering Committee’s package of proposals follows the mandate set by the synod in July and includes the first draft of a House of Bishops declaration and a disputes resolution procedure. This debate invited synod to welcome the proposals and the five guiding principles, already agreed by the House of Bishops, which underpin them.Proposing the package of measures Bishop James Langstaff of Rochester said: “These measures look to the day when the Church of England as an ecclesial entity will have made a clear decision to open all orders of ministry to women and men without distinction, whereby all those so ordained are true and lawful holders of the office which they occupy.”The following motion was carried this morning with 378 votes for, eight against and 25 abstentions:‘That this Synod, welcoming the package of proposals in GS 1924 and the statement of principles endorsed by the House of Bishops at paragraph 12 of GS 1886, invite the House of Bishops to bring to the Synod for consultation in February a draft declaration and proposals for a mandatory disputes resolution procedure which build on the agreement reached by the Steering Committee as a result of its facilitated discussions.”In its afternoon session, the synod also voted to progress the legislation to the next legislative stage of revision at its meeting in February 2014.As a result of the votes carried today, synod has agreed to dispense with the normal Revision Committee process and move straight to revision in full at synod which next meets in February 2014, thereby clearing the way for a possible vote on final approval later in 2014.

USDA closes probe into Alabama BSE case

first_imgMay 8, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – US officials have closed the investigation into the nation’s latest case of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow disease, without finding the infected cow’s origins.John Clifford, the US Department of Agriculture’s chief veterinary officer, announced the end of the investigation into the Alabama case on May 2.The USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) had been trying to learn since mid-March where the Alabama cow came from so it could trace other cattle that might have been exposed to the same feed the cow ate in early years. Cattle are believed to contract the disease by eating contaminated feed.”APHIS’s investigation did not reveal the BSE-positive animal’s herd of origin,” Clifford said in a written statement. “However, this was not entirely unexpected due to the age of the animal, along with its lack of identifying brands, tattoos and tags. Experience worldwide has shown that it is highly unusual to find BSE in more than one animal in a herd or an infected animal’s offspring.”The cow, described as a red crossbreed, was euthanized and tested in March after it was found unable to walk. After a veterinarian took a sample for testing, the cow was buried on the farm, but officials later dug up the carcass to determine its age. They concluded that it was more than 10 years old and therefore was born before the government’s 1997 ban on use of cattle protein in feed for cattle and other ruminant animals.Clifford said APHIS and Alabama officials investigated 36 farms and five auction houses and conducted DNA tests in a hunt for relatives of the infected cow. They found none besides than the cow’s two latest calves. The most recent calf was found on the same farm as its mother and is now being held for observation at APHIS’s national laboratory in Ames, Iowa. The other calf died last year, he said. An Associated Press report said that calf was buried in a landfill.The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigated feed mills that might have supplied feed to the cow after the 1997 feed ban, Clifford reported. “This investigation found that all local feed mills that handle prohibited material have been and continue to be in compliance with the FDA’s feed ban,” he said.The Alabama cow was the nation’s third BSE case. On the basis of tests of more than 700,000 cattle over the past 2 years, the USDA recently estimated that another four to seven cases could exist in the United States.See also:May 2 statement by John Clifford of USDAMar 13 CIDRAP News story “Alabama cow positive for BSE”last_img read more

DONEGAL FRIENDS TO TAKE ON EPIC RUN FOR ABANDONED BABIES

first_imgTwo Donegal friends are to take on an epic 100km run from Sligo to Letterkenny this weekend in aid of charity.Deirdre Boyle from Creeslough and Pauric O’Donnell from Letterkenny hope to complete the run in two days this Friday and Saturday.The pair are traveling to Uganda on July 19th to volunteer with the Loving Hearts Babies Home in Kampala, Uganda. They have been training hard for the 2.5 marathon run by clocking up to 70 miles each over the past eight weeks.“The level of support we have received from friends, family and strangers is absolutely fantastic – the generosity of Irish people knows no bounds. It’s a difficult challenge we’ve set ourselves but we’ll be keeping our focus on the reason we’re doing this and the kids who are going to benefit from it,” Deirdre explained.Neither Deirdre or Pauric are strangers to running with both running marathons in the past but nothing comes close to the task of running two Ultramarathons one day after another.Pauric added “It’s the hardest challenge we’ve ever set ourselves, but we’re confident that with the support we’ve received and in the training we’ve completed that we will be able to achieve our goals and raise as much as possible for the orphanage in the process.” The Loving Hearts Babies Home (www.lovingheartsbabies.com) is a place abandoned babies from 0 to 2 years call home.They are committed to observe and maintain the dignity and rights of the abandoned/orphaned babies by providing the basic individual needs as enjoyed by other privileged babies with caring families.Pauric would like to thank Danny Ryan and the rest of the Core Training Group from Letterkenny for helping prepare him for the run as well as John Grant, Damien McGoohan and Terance Boyle who are their support crew this weekend.Deirdre would like to especially thank her family and friends who supported her in the build up to the run including John Boylan, Conal McFadden and her sister Evelyn for all their training help and everyone else who has sponsored and offered help to her efforts!Special thanks also goes to Tommy Gallagher from CorePro Fitness, Letterkenny who worked hard as the physio for the guys and to Brian McMonagle who has generously donated the use of the HydroTherapy in Aura Leisure Centre to the runners in the build up to the weekend – something that Pauric and Deirdre found essential in their training recovery and run preparation. If you’d like to sponsor the guys, in the knowledge that every penny will be taken straight to those who need it, you can do so on their online donation page here…http://www.give2go.ie/profile/DeeboyleDONEGAL FRIENDS TO TAKE ON EPIC RUN FOR ABANDONED BABIES was last modified: July 4th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:charityDeirdre BoylePauric O’DonnellSligo to Letterkennylast_img read more

Black athletes in 1980s, 90s not outspoken, but not silent

first_imgJohn Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding It took until 2016 for Jordan to finally speak out strongly on a social issue by condemning the killing of black men at the hands of police, writing in a column published by The Undefeated website.Woods said this week that throughout America’s history, blacks have struggled.“A lot of different races have had struggles, and obviously the African Americans here in this country have had their share of struggles,” Woods said. “Obviously has it gotten better, yes, but I still think there’s room for more improvement.”The mold of the public activist — the person who is willing to lead but also willing to lose everything for a cause — doesn’t fit everyone, said Harry Edwards, a scholar of race and sports who has worked as a consultant for several U.S. pro teams.Some guys are fine “picking up a paycheck” because they don’t want to be bothered, Edwards said.ADVERTISEMENT Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH AFP official booed out of forum During the 1995-96 season, Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf began stretching or staying in the locker room during the national anthem. Abdul-Rauf was suspended for one game. But at season’s end, despite averaging 19.2 points and 6.8 assists, he was traded from the Denver Nuggets to the Sacramento Kings. And when his contract expired two years later, he couldn’t get a tryout and was out of the league at age 29.Those protests, some say, may not represent the most radical actions of black athletes of the time, which were in the boardrooms, not on the streets.Jordan built a brand that turned him into a Nike powerhouse, where he brought African-American businessmen and women up the ladder with him, before becoming the first black sports billionaire with his NBA team ownership of the Charlotte Hornets.Magic Johnson, in addition to building a business empire, spoke out passionately about the HIV/AIDS crisis after contracting the disease. The NFL’s Man of the Year award was long named for Walter Payton, who pushed organ donation into the public limelight in his native Chicago and around the country through his foundation while advocating for minority ownership in professional football.Mike Glenn, a 10-year NBA veteran who played from 1977-87 and member of the National Basketball Retired Players Association board of directors, believes how those first black millionaires went about their business helped build the foundation that allows athletes to speak out today.“I think all of them were aware of backlash,” said Glenn, a collector of documents on African American history and culture . “They were aware that if you say certain things it may hurt your brand, or may hurt your ability to do things or that maybe even the league would take a different look at you. I think it was an insecurity of their position regardless of how much success they had.”Jordan and other iconic athletes of that period established the power of individual sports brands, a transitional platform Glenn believes athletes benefit from today.“LeBron has took what Michael had,” Glenn said, “and taken it a step further.” NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers MOST READ Nash, Kidd among finalists for basketball Hall of Fame LATEST STORIES 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoisescenter_img FILE – In this March 15, 1996, file photo, Denver Nuggets guard Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf stands with his teammates and prays during the national anthem before the game with the Chicago Bulls in Chicago.

Green, File)By the 1980s, America finally publicly embraced the black athlete, looking past skin color to see athleticism and skill, rewarding stars with multimillion-dollar athletic contracts, movie deals, lucrative shoe endorsements and mansions in all-white enclaves.Who didn’t want to be like Mike?ADVERTISEMENT “But that’s fine, because that has always been there,” he said. “That was there during slavery. Nat Turner comes and says, ‘Hey, let’s run away. Let’s get some guns. Let’s get some machetes, and let’s fight for our freedom.’ And you always have someone say, ‘You kidding me?’”Dominique Wilkins, an NBA Hall of Famer known as the “Human Highlight Film” for his thunderous, acrobatic dunks during the 1980s and ‘90s, believes social media have amplified athletes’ voices — and the Twitter-less past did not offer sports stars the soap boxes they have now.“We didn’t have a platform because it wasn’t that type of media around,” Wilkins said. “You had the normal, everyday media, but you didn’t have Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, you didn’t have any of that.”Wilkins, 58, said people are completely off base when they say his generation didn’t do anything or care about what was happening in their communities and in the world.“We grew up in a different era. We were born in the civil rights era. I remember when Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated,” said Wilkins, an NBA analyst for Atlanta Hawks games for Fox SportsSouth. “People who say we didn’t care don’t know what they’re talking about. … We cared. We were a part of it, so we cared.“Our parents lived it. Our grandparents lived it. How can we not care?”The activism of the time was different, said sports historian Victoria Jackson, who works in the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies at Arizona State University.Behind the scenes, superstar athletes worked in their communities and with schools — without making their activities known or asking for publicity for their time. Millions of dollars went to schools like historically black colleges and universities — as well as other deserving charities including social justice charities — without public acknowledgment, Jackson said.“While we might have seen a decline in athletes voicing strong opinions publicly about systemic racism, police brutality, criminal justice and education and residential and workplace reform, and perhaps the growth of endorsements contributed to this, I would suspect — if we did a little digging — we’d find countless stories of athletes doing work in the space of social justice and that this is the constant theme in the long historical arc,” she said.There were some who spoke loudly. A dashiki-wearing point guard Craig Hodges, Jordan’s teammate on the Chicago Bulls, presented then-President George H. W. Bush with a letter in 1991, urging more concern for African-Americans during one of the Bulls’ championship trips to the White House. Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC But those fortunate black athletes like Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods did not, for the most part, use their celebrity to speak out. Most were silent on issues like the crack epidemic, apartheid in South Africa, the racial tensions exposed by the O.J. Simpson trial and the police brutality that set off the Rodney King riots.Of course, there were exceptions — more, perhaps, than are generally remembered. And the times and the media of those times did not necessarily lend themselves to protest. But while Jack Johnson and Muhammad Ali once stood up— and more recently, Colin Kaepernick , Lebron James, Serena Williams and others would not back down — black athletes of the ’80s and ’90s were known mostly for playing games.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“It seems to me that we need to rethink how we define ‘activism’ since black athletes certainly were involved in various social causes during that era. Anecdotally, I think about them donating to various scholarship funds and participating in ’say no to drugs” campaigns,’” said Johnny Smith, who is the Julius C. “Bud” Shaw Professor of Sports, Society, and Technology at Georgia Tech. “That’s certainly a form of activism. However, on the whole, the most prominent black male athletes were not confrontational or outspoken.”When Harvey Gantt took on conservative Republican Sen. Jesse Helms in 1990, Jordan — the undisputed superstar athlete of his time — refused to support the black Democrat in his native North Carolina, reportedly saying Republicans buy shoes, too.

Women Take Center Stage At Milken Conference

first_imgAt the 18th annual Milken Institute Global Conference held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on April 26, women took center stage.Throughout the event, conference leaders triumphed the idea that women should be more prominent. This year, they created and met a goal of having at least 30% of the panelists as women. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg moderated a panel with three titans of finance – Timothy Geithner, Robert Rubin, and Hank Paulson – while actresses Freida Pinto and Patricia Arquette passionately expressed their desire to end the wage disparities between men and women in the work force in the U.S. and around the world.The mission of the Milken Institute and its annual conference is “to improve lives around the world by advancing innovative economic and policy solutions that create jobs, widen access to capital and enhance health.” The Global Conference continues to bring together the top leaders in the for-profit, non-profit, and public sector to discuss, debate and tackle the most pressing challenges that face our local, national and international community.For more information, all the panel discussions can be viewed on the milkeninstitute.org website.Copyright ©2015Look to the Starslast_img read more

Matic Man United have nothing to lose at Paris

first_imgManchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic refuses to give up on their Champions League hopes following Tuesday’s first leg defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16.The Red Devils were left outclassed at Old Trafford by a PSG side lacking star duo Neymar and Edinson Cavani in the lineup.The major turning point in the game came in the second half with former United winger Angel Di Maria returning to haunt his old club by assisting Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe for both of PSG’s goals.It enabled the Ligue 1 champions to leave with a 2-0 aggregate lead and hand Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his first defeat as caretaker boss in his 12th match in charge.But Matic insists that United now have nothing to lose for the return leg next month and will be giving it their all to cause an upset.“It was a difficult game for us,” Matic told UEFA.“Obviously when you lose it’s disappointing but I think we played some good football in the 90 minutes and of course in the second half when it was 2-0 it was hard for us.“They had more space to play as we had to risk more, but we have to respect them, they have great players, they are a good team.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“We will go to Paris to try to do something. We don’t have anything to lose so we will try to go there to play good football and try to win of course.”The second leg between PSG and United will take place at the Parc Des Princes in France on March 6.For now, Solskjaer’s men will need to quickly recoup from this setback for Monday’s trip to Stamford Bridge, where they will take on Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup.Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial are doubts for the match after coming off on Tuesday night with injuries.Next up: Chelsea away in the #EmiratesFACup. #MUFC pic.twitter.com/yLOxIIMrD8— Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 13, 2019last_img read more
