Este semana, ENS  publica la serie “Llamados a una misión común” que celebra 15 años de plena comunión episcopal-luterana.[Episcopal News Service] Una de las más antiguas congregaciones episcopales-luteranas comenzó con un apretón de manos entre obispos. El sentimiento de buena voluntad aún orienta a la congregación luterana-episcopal de Valdez, Alaska.Localizado en el canal del Príncipe Guillermo, el pueblo de Valdez tiene una población de aproximadamente 4.000 habitantes. El pueblo más cercano con una iglesia episcopal se encuentra a más de 400 kilómetros. Aunque hay 50 congregaciones en la Diócesis de Alaska, la mayoría son iglesias rurales muy pequeñas. Sólo un puñado de clérigos con preparación teológica presta servicios en la diócesis.“Le digo a la congregación todo el tiempo que ellos son como la Iglesia se va a ver de aquí a 20 o 30 años”, dijo la Rda. Christina Mauntel, pastora de la congregación. “Tenemos solamente un empleado a sueldo. Las señoras limpian la iglesia y todo el mundo trabaja unido para mantenerla. Tenemos un laicado muy fuerte que sabe dirigir. No están más apegados a una u otra denominación, sino que están comprometidos entre sí”.Según los miembros más antiguos, la unión comenzó cuando la congregación episcopal de Valdez se resquebrajó por alguna razón. El sacerdote que estaba en ese tiempo se acercó al pastor luterano y le habló de unir fuerzas. El diálogo continuó entre los obispos, quienes aprobaron una fusión en 1979 —22 años antes de que la Iglesia Episcopal y la Iglesia Evangélica Luterana en América se unieran oficialmente en plena comunión.La congregación fusionada usaba el edificio de la iglesia episcopal y pagó un alquiler nominal durante los primeros años; finalmente, contó Steve Newcomer, presidente del consejo de la congregación, el edificio le fue cedido a los luteranos. Pero en todos los otros sentidos, ellos son una sola congregación, afirmó  Newcomer.Tener una iglesia unida “nunca ha sido un problema para ninguno de nosotros allí”, dijo Newcomer que asiste a la Epifanía [Epiphany] desde que se mudó a Valdez en 1994. “Seré sincero: estuve asistiendo a la iglesia aquí durante una década antes de que supiera lo que era episcopal y lo que era luterano… Nuestra misión es ser un lugar de acogida para todos los cristianos. Ponemos nuestro mayor empeño en aceptar a cualquiera que entre por la puerta”.Esta hospitalidad radical está profundamente arraigada en las congregaciones. Tanto Mauntel como Newcomer recordaban un letrero en el sótano que anunciaba que la iglesia era un lugar donde eran bienvenidos a reunirse y a alabar a Dios. Con el transcurso de los años, episcopales, metodistas, bautistas americanos, presbiterianos, discípulos de Cristo y otros grupos denominacionales se han reunido y han adorado en el edificio de la Epifanía.“No cerramos las puertas [de la Iglesia]”, dijo Newcomer. “Queremos que la gente que busca albergue pueda usar nuestro edificio. Dejamos a cualquier grupo que no se proponga hacer un uso lucrativo de nuestra iglesia. Se nos conoce como la iglesia del pueblo donde todo el mundo es bienvenido”.Aunque ella nunca había puesto un pie en Alaska, la naturaleza ecuménica de la Epifanía atrajo a Mauntel cuando consideró a la congregación como su primer llamado después del seminario. Pastora luterana, para ella es una alegría y un reto aprender más acerca de las tradiciones y la política episcopales.Por ejemplo, la Iglesia Episcopal es más estricta que los luteranos en lo que respecta a administrar el sacramento de la Sagrada Eucaristía, dijo Mauntel. Esto ha llevado a una situación interesante: uno de los líderes laicos episcopales de la iglesia tiene permiso para administrar los sacramentos en el culto luterano, pero no puede presidir en una reunión episcopal.Priscilla Gregg ha vivido toda su vida en Valdez y asistió a la iglesia episcopal de niña y de adulta. Ella formaba parte de la congregación episcopal cuando se fusionó con la iglesia luterana.“Al principio hubo algunas dificultades”, afirmó ella. “Pero decidimos temprano juntarnos como una familia. Nuestro foco a lo largo de los años ha sido que no somos dos cuerpos separados, sino que somos un solo cuerpo”.Ella espera que otras congregaciones del país contemplen la fusión como una oportunidad.“Lo primero para ellos es fijarse en qué se asemejan y en qué difieren”, dijo Gregg. “Y no asustarse. Habrá cambios, pero podemos resolverlos juntos y salir fortalecidos”.– Richelle Thompson es subdirectora y gerente editorial de Forward Movement.

A retired couple, both doctors decide to use their life savings to build a new house in Seville for them and for their visiting kin who living in the UK. They want the house to be designed for today, but also serve the future generations to come.Save this picture!DrawingDurability, solid construction, energy efficiency and the recycling of client materials are set as priorities for the construction. Flexibility for future uses is articulated through the restraints associated with these priorities and by setting a clear system of stable relations around which adaptation and change can occur. This system not only intends to organize service areas and installations, but also curates spatial relationships, structure, light, cross ventilation and energy performance, whilst allowing for its inhabitant’s to appropriate and manipulate programme over time.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda In particular, the design deploys a system of brick cavity walls that articulates all domestic spatial relations, whilst the fluid and dynamic inhabitation unfolds in-between them. The walls are made of two interconnected layers of solid firebrick – leftovers from a local construction. The house is designed as a passive-structure with the help of experts in sustainability from the Architectural Association in London. The energy strategy for the design is based on the thermal inertia of the thick walls. For this reason, the brick walls and concrete slabs are left unclad to better absorb energy flows within them.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda Save this picture!© Fernando Alda Durability of the construction is also considered relevant. Elements such as doors, toilets, faucets, were recycled from a previous home of the clients, thus anticipating not only the free incorporation of elements into the house in the near future, but also, the goal of making durable what was already in use before construction.Save this picture!© Fernando Alda Save this picture!SectionFinally, the design reflects the constant negotiation implied with small commissions – budget limitations, client aspirations, regulations and the dissolution between technological and artisanal solutions. A clear manifestation of this is showcased with the front façade portico. To navigate around local regulation that states that the column widths must be 25x25cm, reintroduced as 20x20cm prefabricated columns, not only does the structure mediate between local regulations, but adheres to the necessary slenderness that matches both the clients’ aspiration for a larger house with the reality of their budget and programme development – generating an ambiguous scale emerging from a technical solution that splits representation from performance.Save this picture!ModelSave this picture!© Fernando Alda Project gallerySee allShow lessDZ Bank Building / Gehry PartnersSelected ProjectsPyramid House / VOID ArchitectureSelected Projects Share ArchDailylast_img read more

Okonkwo key to Horned Frog women’s basketball

Head coach Raegan Pebley said Okonkwo’s willingness to come off the bench sets her apart from others.“It takes a special person to be able to do that,” Pebley said. “To really have that attitude of ‘whatever you need, I’ll do it.’” The junior is scoring her 16.8 points per game in just 20.5 minutes, an incredibly efficient mark for any scorer. She scored her season-high 31 points against Hampton in 19 minutes, missing just three shots on 14 attempts. Pebley said this efficiency also translates to her life off the court. “Everything about Amy is efficient,” she said. “Her life off the floor, her practice habits, her weight room habits– everything about her is efficient.”Along with her efficient scoring, Okonkwo also represents the direction many post players are trending toward in basketball, which is the ability to distance themselves from the post.She leads the team in three-point percentage (.433) and made the game-winning three-pointer against West Virginia in overtime last Saturday. “[Okonkwo] is an example of a positionless player that has a lot of interchangeable parts so that I can move her in a lot of ways,” Pebley said.Okonkwo’s consistent scoring may play a factor in the remaining 12 conference games scheduled before the postseason conference tournament begins March 2.

Reporters Without Borders appeals to interior minister over murder of Paul Khlebnikov

If you can murder an American journalist with complete impunity in the streets of the capital, what are the risks for Russian journalists in the provinces investigating sensitive issues like corruption?” it asked.Musa Vakhayev, 40, originally from Urus-Martan in Chechnya, is suspected of being the driver of the getaway vehicle used in the murder of Khlebnikov, who was gunned down as he left his office. Investigators say his fingerprints were in the vehicle that was found the following day in a Moscow street.Kazbek Duzukov, arrested in Minsk, is suspected to have carried out the murder itself. The Belarus interior ministry said that the four people arrested in Minsk would be handed over to the Russian authorities but gave no further details.The daily Kommersant has said that Khlebnikov may have been murdered because he was investigating the embezzlement of hundreds of millions of dollars allocated to the reconstruction of Chechnya. The paper said that Khlebnikov’s report would have “damaged the interests of a number of officials at both the Chechen and federal level”.Peter Khlebnikov, the editor’s brother, said on 18 November that a group of Russian and US journalists had decided to carry out their own independent investigation.Russian version Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more May 27, 2021 Find out more BelarusEurope – Central Asia December 1, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders appeals to interior minister over murder of Paul Khlebnikov Follow the news on Belarus to go further Newslast_img read more

Listen: Team connections matter at Atlantic Aviation Group

first_img TAGSbusinessInterviewLimerick City and CountyNews Shane O’Neill in the hangar at AAG.Photo: Cian ReinhardtWhen Shane O’Neill walks on to the hangar floor, he greets almost every one of his work colleagues by their first name.It’s nothing new in business but, seeing it first hand, you know that there is a connection that carries mutual respect.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up As chief executive of Atlantic Aviation Group (AAG), he is all about the people who are responsible for the maintenance, repair and overhaul of aircraft worth millions of euro.AAG was created when the maintenance arm of Transaero was put into examinership and Irish businessman Patrick Jordan bought the company in 2015.Throughout its 60 year history, it was the expertise of the workforce that became the firm’s biggest asset.Shane O’Neill knew that retaining the technical competence would allow the fledgeling company to develop and grow.He believes that continuing education and always looking for new opportunities is vital in any area of economic activity.“The area I started off working in, is not what I am doing today. My initial qualifications were in electronics but I’m far removed from electronics now. I’m actually colour blind so I wouldn’t let myself next nor near a circuit board in the morning. But always leave yourself open for an opportunity.”“It’s much the same in a business context. AAG now stands on its own merits with no big brother or no big sister to cut the cheque if we get into difficulty, so the only way we’re going to succeed is through the expertise of the people we have here.“We are very fortunate that there is a great group here and we have brought in some outside people to enhance the existing technical and business competence that we have”.Part of that development included setting up three extra entities to operate alongside the company’s maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) operation.“Patrick Jordan is a very good businessman and one of the things he brought to the business was a level of ambition.“The organisation is essentially a maintenance business for Boeing aircraft but that doesn’t mean we can’t think long-term and create new opportunities.“We set up a training Institute so that we can train the future generations of technicians.“There were over 3,000 expressions of interest when we advertised aircraft mechanic apprenticeships last year. 400 completed aptitude tests before the number was whittled down to 90 for interview. 15 were then chosen to join the four-year programme.“We also set up a design Institute that will take a request from an airline or lessor to make modifications on the aircraft. We run the design, specify the materials and then sell that approved design back to the customer.The fourth stream to the business offers airlines technical experts who will advise on the level of maintenance that has to be done to the aircraft to ensure airworthiness at all times through our Continuing Airworthiness Management Organisation.“It is nice to have this combination of services coupled with our strong customer focus as our USP and our customers are happy with it. They see 250 people with huge amount of knowledge and they want to tap into that.”“From a market outlook perspective, we are very confident that our plans are very achievable and that the industry is in a good place despite the threats of Brexit and rising oil prices.“If we have good people we can develop a strategy, execute it and deliver cash that allows reinvestment back into the business to help us grow.“We have our own ideas about where the market is going, but we constantly seek our customers input to understand their needs. With the right people on board, they will create the solutions for what is needed and meet our customers expectations. It’s simple but effective.”The perception of the Mid West on the international stage is also important.“Reputation is key, as well as being able to offer quality of life. Looking at it from a work life balance, this is where we have an edge when we are recruiting together with the career development opportunities we provide our people.“I got the opportunity to come back to the west and I jumped at it when AAG called. From a family perspective, from a quality-of-life perspective, a lack of congestion, facilities and amenities, I’m where I want to be.“The market is very very tight for resources and our HR and recruitment team is travelling regularly to try and recruit.“One of the tactics that they are using is to showcase the quality of life that the Mid West offers. It has worked and we have attracted people from Dublin and abroad.“Since we came in to the business in 2015, we have been able to give them some personal and career development support and opportunities within the business. They have started coming through the ranks and are now in positions where they are leading. I was given those opportunities in my career and now I am reaping the benefit of that approach.“From a customer perspective, it is great to be able to stand in front of them and say that we will deliver because the team stands behind me, set up, tooled up in the mentality and frame of mind to do just that.” Limerick on Covid watch list Twitter Facebook Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 29 | Levelling Up Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Linkedin Limerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge center_img Print BusinessNewsVideoListen: Team connections matter at Atlantic Aviation GroupBy Staff Reporter – February 2, 2019 2311 Advertisement WhatsApp Email TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

Providers: Heart attacks can happen at any age

first_img Pinterest Pinterest Previous articleSTONE: Nurses inspire, influence and innovateNext articleFive things you need to know today, May 7 admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Virgin Coco MojitoSmoked Bacon Wrapped French Vidalia OnionUpside Down Blueberry Pie CheesecakePowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay Twitter Home Local News Providers: Heart attacks can happen at any age He said he had taken his cholesterol medication and aspirin, but was already thinking in the back of his mind that he might be having a heart attack. Rodriguez went to the restroom, looked in the mirror and saw perfect beads of sweat on his forehead.The first thing he did was call the supervisor at MCH and ask him what cardiologist was on call. He decided to go to the emergency room and drove himself, which he said is not a good idea. He was supposed to work that Sunday as a house supervisor, but got the day off to do yard work.“… They got me in really quick,” Rodriguez said.He was given some nitroglycerin and the pain went away quickly. Rodriguez said that was another confirmation that he had a blockage in his heart.Labs were ordered and an EKG was conducted. Rodriguez said the lab work was negative. The doctor told him he needed to be admitted to the hospital, but he said he was OK and noted that the critical care and chest pain centers were full.Rodriguez, who has a doctorate of nursing practice, said he would come back the next day. He did his payroll and then to have an angiogram. The angiogram was read on Tuesday and Rodriguez said cardiologist Dr. Fernando Boccalandro called and asked if he wanted to look at it.“I was still in denial. Nurses are the worst patients by the way. We treat ourselves. We diagnose ourselves. We’re looking at the images. There’s one spot. He says, ‘You know what Rene, I don’t think it’s a blockage. I think it’s bridging.’ The artery goes into the muscle and every time it contracts it squeezes that causing chest pain,” Rodriguez said. That’s when his occlusion was found.“I can see where the regular population may think it’s heartburn. We have many patients who say, ‘It started two weeks ago.’ It’s imperative for them to get medical attention anytime they start having any type of heart symptoms,” Rodriguez said.He added that symptoms vary from patient to patient aren’t always the stereotypical grabbing the chest. It can be anything from jaw pain to chest pressure and pain in the left arm. Rodriguez said a patient came in once with an earache, but was actually having a heart attack.“We’ve seen just about everything,” Rodriguez said. He advises people that if they have a family history of heart issues, they should start getting checked on a regular basis for any cardiac condition — every six months to a year — no matter how old they are.“Any correlating diagnosis that you may have — high blood pressure, high cholesterol — every six months is what I would recommend,” Rodriguez said.He recommends starting with their family doctor and having them check for blood pressure and labs. If the need arises, they can refer you to a specialist, such as a cardiologist.Traditionally, Boccalandro said, heart attacks have been associated with elderly patients.“We have about 700,000 heart attacks yearly in United States,” he said.And their age is declining. Boccalandro and Rodriguez said they have seen heart attacks in people in their 20s, 30s and 40s because people aren’t as active and have worse dietary habits.“The main reason I think we see that is we see a higher incidence of co-morbidities in younger people,” such as obesity, diabetes and hypertension, which are important risk factors, Boccalandro said.“I think that we’re seeing this disease coming earlier and earlier. Younger patients tend to have symptoms and they can be dismissed because the association of heart attacks with a younger individual is not a consideration,” Boccalandro said. “People don’t think about it. They can get in trouble because they don’t realize it’s the heart. It’s important not to ignore symptoms that could suggest heart disease.”These can include chest pain, chest discomfort, shortness of breath and getting tired easily.He said it’s important for any patient, even at age 20, to be checked out for risk factors that can affect the heart like high blood pressure, weight, glucose and cholesterol.Use of tobacco products significantly increases the risk of developing coronary heart disease and heart attacks, Boccalandro said. He added that people don’t cook at home anymore and eat a lot of foods high in saturated fat.Rodriguez said he and his wife have made an effort to eat more healthfully since his cardiac event.“It’s a little bit organization and discipline because you know at some point you’ll get hungry and have to eat. Plan (so) when that moment comes you have something healthy in your hand, rather than ‘I’m hungry. Let me see what I can find.’ I think that can make a tremendous difference if you plan ahead,” Boccalandro said.More info WhatsApp Divisional Director for the Center for Heart Disease, Rene Rodriguez DNP RN, stands in the Medical Center Hospital cath lab Thursday, April 12, 2018.

Flooding continues to pose threat to communities along Mississippi, Arkansas rivers

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Dozens of rivers and streams are at or overflowing their banks in the Upper Midwest and Gulf Coast as the regions deal with rainfall measured in feet, not inches.In the last two weeks, 15 to 20 inches of rain has fallen in the heartland with all of the stormy weather. The threat for tornadoes will lessen in most of the country after over 400 reported in the last two weeks, but the flood risk increases as the water begins to drain from 2 weeks of heavy rain.Several levees are beginning to fail and some already failed, including a breach in Dardanelle, Arkansas, Friday morning. A small number of homes have been evacuated.West of Kansas City, a dam near Sabetcha, Kansas, could fail in the next couple of days with all the runoff water.The good news for now is that there is not a lot of rain expected in the central U.S. over the next few days.The severe storms on Friday will be in the Carolinas, Great Lakes and western Texas. The tornado threat is small, but gusty winds and some hail are possible.There is some bad news, as a new storm system will bring more rain early next week for the Southern Plains.Some areas could see up to 4 inches of rain in the flood zone.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
