Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Submit a Press Release [Lent Madness – press release] While college basketball fans are in the midst of March Madness, Christians can now relax after a nail-biting finish to Lent Madness 2013. In the final match-up, former Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins worked her way past St. Luke to win the coveted Golden Halo.Throughout the season of Lent thousands of voters have cast their ballots for their favorite saints through this engaging online devotional tool designed to help people learn about saints. There have been upsets and thrilling, come-from-behind victories as the field has been whittled down from 32 starters, to the Saintly Sixteen, the Elate Eight, the Faithful Four, and eventually the two finalists.Frances Perkins became known as the architect of the New Deal while she served as Secretary of Labor in the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration. But she wasn’t merely a government bureaucrat. Perkins’ compassion came at least in part from her strong Christian faith. She was a regular worshiper in Episcopal churches and was added to the Episcopal Church calendar in 2009 for optional commemoration. She is the first American to win the Golden Halo. Previous winners were Mary Magdalene (2012), C. S. Lewis (2011), and George Herbert (2010).The “celebrity blogger” who promoted the cause of Frances Perkins, Heidi Shott, canon for communications and social justice in the Episcopal Diocese of Maine, said, “I am thrilled – and not a little bit stunned – that Frances Perkins made her way to the Golden Halo. As a lay woman in the Episcopal Church, I am so pleased that Perkins’ witness will be magnified both in the Episcopal Church and beyond.”Musing on this year’s winner, Lent Madness creator, the Rev. Tim Schenck, says “One of the fun things about Lent Madness is people learning about lesser known inspirational figures. In this case Frances Perkins captured the hearts and minds of the voting public and swept to an unlikely victory. I assure you no one who filled out a bracket had her going all the way!”Frances Perkins had deep family roots in Maine. The Episcopal bishop of Maine, the Rt. Rev. Stephen Lane, said, “I’m delighted that Frances Perkins has won the Golden Halo. She is an icon for how baptized persons live out their ministry in the world.”Mary Jo Curtis, director of media relations for Mt. Holyoke College, is rightfully proud. “Frances Perkins has been an inspiration to generations of Mount Holyoke women, and it’s been deeply gratifying to see the Lent Madness community learn of her and her life of good work – work that has shaped our country and helped so many. We are so pleased and proud to see her win the Golden Halo. We always knew she was an extraordinary and special woman, and now others know it, too.”Lent Madness began in 2010 as the brainchild of Schenck, rector of St. John’s Church in Hingham, Massachusetts. In seeking a fun, engaging way for people to learn about the men and women comprising the church’s calendar of saints, Schenck came up with this unique Lenten devotion. Combining his love of sports with his passion for the lives of the saints, Lent Madness was born on his blog “Clergy Family Confidential.”Starting in 2012, Schenck partnered with Forward Movement, a publisher and spiritual vitality catalyst in the Episcopal Church. The Rev. Scott Gunn, executive director of Forward Movement, said, “Nearly 100,000 people took part in Lent Madness this year, forming a massive online community in which we all learned a bit more about how God works in the lives of people struggling much as we do. Lent Madness is not only fun, but it teaches us there is hope for us, too.”Forward Movement has worked since 1935 to bring vitality and spiritual health to the church and its people. Based in Cincinnati, OH, Forward Movement is widely known for Forward Day by Day. Lent Madness is one of many ways that Forward Movement hopes to encourage spiritual growth throughout our whole lives. Forward Movement is a ministry of The Episcopal Church.

It was our hope at the time that she would become better known to the church the nurtured her powerful faith and profoundly effective ministry. At that time, we called on the church to add her to the calendar. I am delighted that Lent Madness has succeeded in elevating her visibility and improving awareness in the church.

Pratham UK launches “Understanding India” discussion series

The forum was preceded by a display of Indian and Islamic art to be sold at auction later this week by Christies and was followed by a Q&A session with the esteemed panellists. The event was generously sponsored by Taj Hotel Resorts & Palaces and 51 Buckingham Gate.The discussion provided a healthy exchange of ideas and opinions and explored several issues pertaining to education in India and the changes the country has seen in economic prosperity and influence as a result of entrepreneurialism and the provision of education. The panelists also engaged in conversations that challenged the status quo, questioning the political and social consensus and structure of the Indian government and how this has stifled the universalisation of education in India. Furthermore, discussion was also divided with a split of opinions on the rise in NRIs and Indian born academics venturing West for new business opportunities.In response to Jo Johnson’s comment on “Universal free compulsory education should have been a reality in India 50 years ago in 1960 for all children according to the Indian constitution’ and why this has been deferred time and time again”, Dr Madhav Chavan replied: “Indian leadership did not emphasize on preliminary education as they should have. When Pratham started, education was focused on the social justice theme. After economic liberation in 1991, industry business people realized that the lack of education will be the road block to economic growth. If India wants to achieve 9-10% economic growth rate, they need educated skilled workers to help them achieve that”.Anshu Jain made a poignant comment relating to the pool of talent India has, stating: “There are definitely talents from India. When Deutsche Bank started to recruit from India for the capital market franchise team, all the new recruits from India were within the top 10 in the group of 90 in the final examination. India does have talents and top end institutions; however it does not mean that there is no problem with the education system. There are talents in India and they need top end institutions to nurture the talent.”Pratham is established as a leader in intellectual and thought provoking discussions relating to development issues in India. As a result of the organisation’s size and ability to implement change efficiently, the charity has become a leading voice in policy discussions in India and academic research internationally. The Understanding India Discussion Series will continue and extend this facet of Pratham’s work. This will complement Pratham’s traditional methods of social fundraising, provide guests with the opportunity to delve deep into the issues that surround primary education, and locate the charity’s work within the wider landscape of economic growth and development in India.In speaking about the launch of the Understanding India Discussion Series, Vilas Gadkari, Chairman, Pratham UK comments: “Pratham’s pioneering work has demonstrated how active support and campaigning can offer children a better and enriched future. Pratham believes that knowledge and information can empower and motivate potential givers. An event such as this helps to quantify the impact charitable giving can make to the lives of others, and reveal the urgency and scale of need. We are nearly half way to reaching our goal of enhancing literacy amongst 100 million children in India and we call upon everyone to join our movement and support Pratham in actualising its ambition and changing the lives of children.”Since 1994, Pratham, which began its journey in the slums of Mumbai, has had dramatic success in improving basic reading and maths in some states. The last two years have seen Pratham create a network of uncompensated village and community volunteers which has expanded nationally, with programmes now running in most states across India, making the charity the largest education NGO working to universalise primary education in India. Through its flagship Read India programme, Pratham has mobilised more than 450,000 volunteers across 22 states and trained around the same number of government school teachers in some states in learning enhancement programmes focused on basic literacy skills.In March 2003, Pratham UK was established by a group of volunteers who have been associated with the charity’s movement for several years. The aim of the UK incorporated charity is to raise awareness and funds for Pratham’s programmes in India. Since its UK launch, the charity has raised significant sums of money through various sporting and social fundraising events. One of Pratham’s newest initiatives is the Pratham Young Professionals Network, a unique platform that encourages philanthropic endeavours amongst 3rd and 4th generations in the UK. Pratham also has international operations in the USA, Germany, Canada and UAE which provide fund raising support.For more information please visit:www.pratham.org.uk Friday 2nd October 2009, Christies, London saw the launch of a pioneering series of discussions, Understanding India, by the UK arm of Pratham, an international charity initiated by UNICEF and dedicated to helping under privileged children in India with reading, writing and basic arithmetic. Pratham’s mission is to have “every child in India in school and learning well”. Since 2008-09, Pratham enhanced literacy amongst 31 million children living in rural areas in approximately 355,000 villages in India – more than half of the UK’s population – and 350,000 children in 43 urban cities.The Understanding India Discussion Series aims to pioneer a new philosophy and generate a new breed of philanthropists with an interest in India. The inaugural topic of the discussion was in line with Pratham’s core focus of education – ‘How relevant is education and entrepreneurship to India’s future?’ The date of the event coincided with the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi who had pledged to universalise primary school education.Chaired by Jo Johnson, Editor of Lex, Financial Times, the panellists comprised a prestigious line-up of high profile international and national public figures and personalities which included entrepreneur Vikrant Bhargava, Anshu Jain of Deutsche Bank, TV personality and eminent businessman Suhel Seth and Paddy Walker of J Leon Group. Also on the panel was Co-Founder and CEO of Pratham, Dr. Madhav Chavan who was instrumental in building the concept of a “societal mission” for universal primary education in India through Pratham.

After being down by as many as 11 in the first half, the Frogs went on an 18-1 second-half run led by senior guard Desmond Bane to tame the Bears. “My teammates have the most confidence in me and support, so it makes it easy to keep going,” Bane said. “I just stayed aggressive, and they started falling.”TCU guard Desmond Bane pumps up the crowd, as the Frogs would go on to knock off No. 2 Baylor 75-72. Photo by Heesoo Yang.The win was TCU’s first win over a top-2 opponent since March 2017. “It’s huge,” Bane said about the win. “We’ve always known that we could do things like this.”The senior finished with a game-high 23 points, 19 of which had come in the second half alone.The win was TCU’s second straight over a ranked opponent at home, as the Frogs defeated No. 17 West Virginia last Saturday. The Frogs are now 7-9 in Big 12 playing, sitting at seventh in the conference standings.TCU players celebrate with students and fans after knocking off No. 2 Baylor on Saturday. Photo by Heesoo Yang.Bane didn’t do it all alone, though. First-year P.J. Fuller poured in a career-high 21 points on the night. “I think PJ was huge for us,” head coach Dixon said. “He drived. He got to the basket, and that opened up the floor for us too.”Despite being short-handed with injuries to both R.J. Nembhard and Francisco Farabello, TCU came out swinging. After Bane hit his first two shots, guard Jaire Grayer nailed a three to give the Frogs an early 7-3 lead.The Frogs let their lead slip away by scoring just three points in the next eight minutes of play, going 1-for-10 from the field as a team during the period.While Baylor did take the lead, they were unable to run away with the game. The Bears started the game 0-for-9 from behind-the-arc.PJ Fuller puts a move on his defender en route to a career-high 21 points on Saturday. Photo by Heesoo Yang.The Frogs trailed 28-21 at the halftime break while shooting just 27 percent as a team to that point.Grayer and Baylor center Freddie Gillespie were tied for a game-high eight points after the first 20 minutes.Fuller exploded in the second half. After hitting a pull-up jumper, he hit center Kevin Samuel with a no-look pass for an easy dunk. “That was really exciting, but I was only able to do it because my teammates believed in me,” Fuller. “Also, Frog Army–they definitely gave us energy tonight.”Moments later, Fuller went on a personal 5-0 run, leading a spurt that pulled TCU within five, 39-34, with 14:13 to play.He then hit a strong layup and-one to cut the Frogs’ deficit to four.“I tell him all the time how special he can be,” Bane said of Fuller. “It’s just a matter of sticking with it.”TCU would continue to surge, hitting four of their first six three-point attempts of the second half. With 8:19 to play, Samuel hit two free throws to give the Frogs a 50-49 lead, their first since the opening six minutes of the game.From there, Bane took over, putting TCU up by as much as 12 at one point and lighting the crowd up. Baylor wouldn’t give up, pulling within three with 22 seconds left, but a breakaway dunk by Fuller followed by clutch free throws from guard Diante Smith held off the Bears’ late run, sealing the win for TCU.The Frogs had scored 54 points in the second half alone, two more than they scored all game in their first match-up with Baylor.“We looked like an old team in the second half with seven guys,” Dixon said.Grayer joined Bane and Fuller in double digits for TCU, finishing with 13 points to go with nine rebounds.Gillespie finished the contest with 18 points, 17 rebounds and three blocks for Baylor.Up next, TCU looks to keep rolling as they head up to Lawrence, Kansas, to face No. 1 Kansas.

Round-up of demonstrations marking World Press Freedom Day

first_img May 11, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Round-up of demonstrations marking World Press Freedom Day RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Organisation News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says June 7, 2021 Find out more GeorgiaSeveral regional newspapers published an issue on 3 May with the front page completely blank except for the words “Give us information.” A dozen media supported the protest, designed to draw attention to the difficulties journalists often encounter in obtaining official information. The authorities have often refused to allow access to information since 2000.Moldova Although Moldovan civil society has long been rather moribund, several NGOs specialising in media matters organised a series of activities in the capital, Chisinau, to draw the public’s attention to the problems that journalists encounter in Moldova.The Young Journalists Centre organised a flashmob aimed at highlighting the over-politicisation of the Moldovan media. The video of the demonstration shows a dozen participants wearing white T-shirts bearing the names of various political parties that were finally removed to symbolise the need for the media to serve the public and not politics. A news conference at the Independent Centre for Journalists gave an evaluation of the situation of the media in the past 12 months while the Moldova Union of Journalists organised a meeting at which journalists were encouraged to rise to the challenge of independence while the authorities were urged to do their utmost to obtain the release of Ernest Vardanean, a journalist detained in the breakaway region of Transnistria. Ukraine More than 50 journalists employed by the daily Express demonstrated in the main railway station in the western city of Lviv. Chanting “Where are we going?” and other slogans, six of them chained themselves to a Russia-bound train from western Europe which they said symbolised the evolving press freedom situation in Ukraine since Viktor Yanukovych became president in February. Like the train, Ukraine was moving from the West, which had press freedom, to Russia, which had little. Already, press freedom now “exists only on paper” in Ukraine, they said.One of the journalists read out this statement: “We protest against the attacks on journalists, we protest against the harassment of journalists and we protest because we want to live. We call for the safety of journalists to be guaranteed and for all the violence against journalists to be investigated immediately, so that all those responsible are punished. We demand action not words! Where are we going, Mr. Yanukovych?” The Media Institute and the Union of Kiev Independent Media presented their list of “Enemies of the Press in 2009.” Ukraine’s attorney-general, Oleksander Medvedko, was top of the list. Yanukovych, who did not become president until February of this year, was tenth on the list.Reporters Without Borders congratulates the journalists and organisations that organised these activities and hopes they bear fruit. World Press Freedom Day offers an opportunity both to remind governments of their obligations towards the media and to emphasize the need to defend media freedom to the public, which does not always feel concerned by this issue. News Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia Help by sharing this information While Reporters Without Borders was staging a protest outside the Iranian embassy in Paris on 3 May, World Press Freedom Day, our correspondents and other journalists organised activities in many former Soviet republics to mark the occasion. A round-up of the more noteworthy events:ArmeniaA photo exhibition entitled “Press freedom, the right to know” was organised in the capital, Yerevan, by the Armenian Centre for Freedom of Information in cooperation with the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the United Nations Public Information Department with the aim stressing the need for access to information as a condition for free expression. The show’s 30 photos reflected the importance of the right to news and information and the state’s duty to ensure this right is respected. The opening was attended by journalists and representatives of state institutions and civil society organisations.Azerbaijan Independent Azerbaijani journalists gathered at the grave of Elmar Huseynov, the editor of the magazine Monitor and one of the country’s leading journalists, who was murdered on 3 March 2005. It has been a tradition to pay tribute to Huseynov every year on World Press Freedom day ever since his death. No one was ever arrested for his murder.A round table discussion on Internet freedom was also organised.

According to an FHA press release, this would allow lenders to rely on the compliance aid to determine if a private flood insurance policy meets FHA’s requirements.The FHA said it anticipates between 3-5% of FHA borrowers could obtain a private flood insurance policy for their FHA-insured mortgage if this option becomes available.”This proposal will remove yet another unnecessary regulatory barrier to doing business with FHA and can also reduce costs to the federal government—costs that are ultimately born by the taxpayer,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary for Single Family Housing Joe Gormley. “Allowing participation by private insurers should generate the competition needed to ultimately reduce costs for consumers.”The proposed rule will be published in the Federal Register in the coming days and will allow a 60-day public comment period following such publication. Comments should be submitted to FHA only through the methods specified in the notice to be published in the Federal Register.The FHA added that this is only a proposal; “current flood insurance policies remain unchanged at this time, including the requirement that minimum flood insurance be obtained through the NFIP.” Previous: Health Crisis Makes Digital Readiness a Priority Next: Affordable Housing Impact: Proposed Property Tax Struck Down Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago November 10, 2020 1,015 Views FHA Proposes Private Flood Insurance for Single-Family Mortgages Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News About Author: Christina Hughes Babb 2020-11-10 Christina Hughes Babb Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
