LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate The Anatomy of Fear Clive Staples Lewis (29 November 1898 – 22 November 1963) was a British novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, literary critic, essayist, lay theologian, broadcaster, lecturer, and Christian apologist.Lewis was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement.Lewis wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. C. S. Lewis’s most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics in The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.He is best known for his fictional works, especially The Screwtape Letters, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Space Trilogy, and for his non-fiction Christian apologetics, such as Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain.Lewis and fellow novelist J. R. R. Tolkien were close friends. They both served on the English faculty at Oxford University, and were active in the informal Oxford literary group known as the Inklings. According to Lewis’s memoir Surprised by Joy, he was baptised in the Church of Ireland, but fell away from his faith during adolescence. Lewis returned to Anglicanism at the age of 32, owing to the influence of Tolkien and other friends, and he became an “ordinary layman of the Church of England”.His faith profoundly affected his work, and his wartime radio broadcasts on the subject of Christianity brought him wide acclaim.In 1956, he married American writer Joy Davidman; she died of cancer four years later at the age of 45. Lewis died on 22 November 1963 from renal failure, one week before his 65th birthday.In 2013, on the 50th anniversary of his death, Lewis was honoured with a memorial in Poets’ Corner in Westminster Abbey.Lewis’s works have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold millions of copies. The books that make up The Chronicles of Narnia have sold the most and have been popularised on stage, TV, radio, and cinema. His works entered the public domain in 2014 in countries where copyright expires 50 years after the death of the creator, such as Canada.Use this link to learn more about C.S. Lewis.

Professor Ian Bruce marks 25 years of Charity Talks

first_img Charity Talks, the annual series of public talks by charity leaders, will mark its 25th anniversary this week with a talk by its founder Professor Ian Bruce CBE.Professor Bruce is President of the Centre for Charity Effectiveness at Cass Business School in London. On 21 February he will speak on ‘Good Practice Now – what have been the effective changes to running charities over the last 25 years,’ reflecting on how the charity sector has evolved during that time.SEE ALSO: New course on financial sustainability for charities from Cass CCE (21 September 2017)Since the first event, Professor Bruce has chaired over 150 charity chief executives and responders to Charity Talks, and helped spread insight into the changes and progression in nonprofit management and leadership.Professor Ian Bruce CBE, founder of Charity Talks Professor Ian Bruce said: “The talk draws on listening to many charity leaders talk about how their charities were run, in front of over 10,000 charity staff and trustees over the years. “As well as fascinating insights from the past 25 years, I will also be looking at growing concerns about government outsourcing services and how outsourcers, such as non-profit organisations, (NPOs) including charities, could offer more.“Many have pioneered welfare services for the state and could offer their expertise if tender processes were adapted to encourage more charities to bid and existing charity bidders to do more. This would improve things for the people we are here to serve and would increase charity revenue streams.” Tagged with: Cass CCE leadership Management AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Stuart Etherington appointed honorary visiting professor at City University (14 April 2003)New Director of Development at City University (7 April 2005)4th edition of Managing Without Profit published (9 May 2017) Advertisement  199 total views,  1 views todaycenter_img Charity Talks 2017/18In addition to this week’s event, there are two more Charity Talks scheduled this year:Wednesday 25th April 2018 – Managing and leading inside nonprofits, with Juliet Bouverie, Chief Executive, Stroke Association and Professor Marianne Lewis, Dean and Professor of Management, Cass Business SchoolWednesday 11 July 2018: Topic to be confirmed, with Helen Stephenson CBE, CEO, Charity Commission and Caroline Copeman, Consultant, Cass CCEAll talks take place at Cass Business School, 106 Bunhill Row, London, EC1Y 8TZ, starting at 6 for 6.30pm. Tickets cost £35 for individual talks including a buffet reception.

What Will We Do with All This Corn?

first_img SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News What Will We Do with All This Corn? Previous articleMore Harvest Interruptions LoomingNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 10, 2017 Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter What Will We Do with All This Corn? What Will We Do with Alll This Corn?Tom SleightThe 2017 corn crop just keeps getting bigger. The question now is: what are we going to do with all this corn? The USDA report released on Thursday raised the average corn yield 4 bpa and pushed the overall size of the crop to 14.5 bb.  As a result, corn and soybean prices dropped sharply.Finding demand for this crop becomes an even bigger issue. Chris Novak, with the National Corn Growers Association, told HAT that stimulating demand for corn is the top priority of his organization.Tom Sleight, with the U.S. Grains Council, is optimistic about improving grain sales, especially to Korea and China, “The President was warmly received in Korea, and our relations are good as we begin reworking a Korea Free Trade Agreement.” Sleight said the President made progress on this visit to China, as a value added tax on DDGs was eliminated.Sleight says Ted McKinney, USDA undersecretary of agriculture for trade, is making progress in getting more US grain into India, “Ted McKinney is a great advocate for trade. He has hit the ground running since his first day at USDA.” Sleight said McKinney’s recent trade mission to India helped make progress on a number of trade issues including ethanol and dairy.But, challenges remain. Sleight said the current state of the NAFTA negotiations is a good example of how important it is that the US is aggressive, yet consistent, on ag trade. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said, at a press conference with Farm Broadcasters in Kansas City on Thursday, that he remains optimistic there will be a successful outcome to the NAFTA talks. “The President knows how important trade is to agriculture,” he stated and added that he has had some “very candid” conversations with U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on the issue of trade and NAFTA.

Sr. Adv. Nayyar on behalf of SpiceJet agreed, and said, “We will give them a better offer, just don’t want any precipitate action,” upon which the Delhi High Court told AAI to not take any action on the Bank Guarantees till SpiceJet shows its offers.The Court observed, “We don’t want another airline going bust right now.” The Single Judge bench of Justice Navin Chawla was hearing a case by the airline against the AAI seeking to encash its bank guarantee towards the repayment of the claimed due amount. The AAI has claimed that against outstanding traffic dues of Rs. 157.16 crores and interest of Rs. 82.19 crores, SpiceJet has submitted payment plan of Rs. 20 crores only. AAI stated that these Traffic Invoices were outstanding beyond the credit period and that SpiceJet had not responded despite repeated reminders. Sr. Adv. Rajiv Nayyar appearing SpiceJet submitted that this was due to its business being hit on account of Covid-19 related travel restrictions and that the dispute was only in relation to the interest amount claimed. He further submitted that the airline has already submitted a proposal for payment plan yesterday. AAI confirmed that they had received a proposal, but clarified that the amount of Rs. 158 cr was due since 2015, as against the impression created by SpiceJet that the due was accumulated during the Covid-period. Justice Chawla then said, “The impression we have got is that this amount is due for the Covid period,” and giving SpiceJet a chance to settle the dues, said “Why don’t you give them a better offer? We will not take any action till then.” Highlighting the financial stress faced across the sector, AAI submitted that, it didn’t want don’t want another case like the Kingfisher Airlines, and that SpiceJet had not even given Rs. 100 cr security cover as demanded by AAI. Counsel for AAI also argued that Covid-19 related stress applied to other airlines like Indigo and Vistara as well, and that AAI itself had taken loan worth nearly Rs. 15,000 crores.Next Storylast_img read more

Where’s Lil’ Orphant Annie?

first_img Book Nook to reopen On the Halloween nights of my childhood, Eunice would look off into the darkness the sun had left behind and say in her slow, low voice, “When I was a little girl no bigger than you … “Little Orphant Annie would come to our house to stay …” and I would slide my bag of bones across the porch floor and get right up next to where Eunice was sitting in an old cane bottom chair. I don’t know how many Halloween nights I spent listening to the witch tales that Eunice told about but I do know that those nights were magical.  When the limbs of the big oak tree would scratch the tin roof on Eunice’s old weathered house and an owl would hoot in the distance, I would crawl up in Eunice’s lap and she would hold me close as she told the story of Little Orphant Annie once again.“Little Orphant Annie’s come to our house to stay, Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration And all us other children, when the supper things are done,We’d sit around the kitchen fire and have the mostest funListening to the witch tales that Annie tells aboutCause the goblins’ll git you if you don’t watch out. Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Where’s Lil’ Orphant Annie? By The Penny Hoarder Once there was a little boy who wouldn’t say his prayers And, when he went to bed that night a-way up the stairs,His mama heard him holler and his daddy heard him bawlBut, when they turned the kivvers back, he was nowhere at all.They looked for him in the attic and on the roof no lessAnd up the chimney flue and everywhere I guess, But all they ever found was his pants round aboutCause the goblins’ll git you if you don’t watch out.One time there was a little girl who’d always laugh and grinAnd make fun of everyone and all her blood and kinOne time, when there was company and old folks was there,She mocked them and shocked them and said she didn’t care.But just as she kicked up her heels to turn and run and hide,There was two great big spooky things a-standing by her side.And, they snatched her through the ceiling Fore she knew what she was about,Cause the goblins’ll git you if you don’t watch out.Little Orphant Annie says when the blaze is blueAnd the lamp-wick sputters and the wind goes woo-ooAnd you hear the crickets quit and the moon is grayAnd the lightning bugs and dew is all squenched away,You’d better mind your parents and your teachers fond and dear,Cherish them that loves you and dry the orphant’s tear.Look after the poor and needy ones that clusters all aboutCause the goblins’ll git you if you don’t watch out.”For all my childhood days, I thought Eunice made up that story about Little Orphant Annie all by herself. But, when I learned that “Little Orphant Annie” was written by a famous poet, James Whitcomb Riley, it really didn’t matter because it was Eunice’s house where Little Orphant Annie came to stay. And, it was Eunice who held me close and turned moonless Halloween nights into magic with soft spoken words about a little orphant girl.Happy Halloween, 2020.
