Curry said in a video message posted on Facebook as he returns to work following prostate surgery in late July.“I came through the surgery very well. Everything is good,” Curry said in the video. “The pathology report was just fine, and I’m slowly but surely working my way back into the work I love to do.” He describes reading through the hundreds of cards and letters sent to him at the Episcopal Church Center. “They are a blessing,” he declared.On July 25 Presiding Bishop Curry shared news that he had recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer and would be having surgery to remove the prostate gland. “I’ve been recovering,” he said. “I pretty much stayed home and recuperated in August. Things are starting up slowly, but starting up.” Bishop Curry has recently resumed work and was in Atlanta to speak at a sold-out benefit dinner for the Day1 media ministry. He was also honored by the Atlanta City Council.Day1 is the ecumenical radio and internet ministry formerly known as “The Protestant Hour,” which has broadcast sermons by preachers from the mainline denominations each week for 73 years. The program is produced by the Alliance for Christian Media. Bishop Curry was a regular contributor to the program in the 1990s, a member of the Day1 advisory board, and a former member of the board of trustees.

Happy New year to you as well my friend, God bless! Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. charles towne Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The VOICE of InspirationBy Don LindseyAfter a wonderful Christmas at my mother in laws place in Fort Pierce, the family and I headed back to Apopka happy and ready to enjoy the rest of the holiday season. While we’re still a happy bunch, my daughter came down with a bad flu like illness and still being in the Christmas spirit, shared that illness with the a few other members of the household.About the only positive thing about having the flu is that it keeps you inactive and gives you some time to think. During the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s always been easy for me to focus on the worries I have instead of the blessings. As I’ve sat around the last few days feeling miserable, I’ve also have had the time to reflect on this last year and all the things it brought to us as a family.2017 was a growing year for my family and myself. Like all families, we saw some rough patches and we saw some great situations as well. All in all, we have faced some adversity and have come out of it stronger and more united than ever. Except for the flu we’re currently fighting, we go into 2018 in good health and anxious to see what the Lord has planned for us.This last year has also brought a ton of love shown to us by our friends, family and loved ones. Just a couple of days before Christmas, we received a visit from a couple of gentlemen from our church. Even though we haven’t been to church in a very long time, they reminded us that we’re still thought of and loved by our church family. I won’t go into too many details because I do not wish to publicize the personal moments that we shared with them, but what I can say is that their kind gesture has touched the hearts of my family and me.The more I think of that visit and all the things we’ve been through as a family in the last year, I can’t help but see that love is the thing that held us together through the tough times we’ve faced in 2017. That visit also reminds of something that I talk about a lot and not just in these columns but in my everyday life and that is, when we show each other love, and work to build each other up is when we truly live up to the purpose that God created us for.Recently I ran across a video of the comedian Jim Carrey giving a commencement speech in 2014. If you’re familiar with his work, then you know that he is one of the most zany and funniest people on the planet. In this video, he lived up to that moniker, but he also had some of the best advice I have heard on how to navigate life’s pitfalls and hardships. He said that we are faced with two choices when making decisions in life; love and fear. He explained that a lot of us choose our path in life out of fear we disguise as practicality because what we really want or dream for seems too risky or out of reach. I found that to be very profound because I’ve done the same thing in my own life before I decided to take a chance on moving here and marrying the love of my life. I could have stayed in that safe zone, but by risking hurt or failure, I have made my life so much better by going with what I wanted. As Mr. Carrey said in his speech, “You can fail at what you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” As I look ahead to the new year before us, I plan on using the previous statement as my motto.I’ve always enjoyed writing songs, but because of restraints that I put on myself have gotten away from that. I’ve always wanted to write a book, but didn’t think that I had the talent to do so. These are just two examples, but my point in mentioning them is that I recognize how I get in my own way of getting the most out of my life, and I need to change that and focus on the joys and blessings that God has provided. With that in mind I say thank you to 2017 for the lessons that I’ve learned but also say goodbye with excitement for what 2018 holds for my family and myself. God Bless and Happy New Year. read more

Parents will be allowed to make the choice for their child’s instructional model and will be required to turn in their choice by July 24. They have three choices as follows:Instructional Model Choices•. Face-to-Face – On campus, regular schedule, five days a week as required by the state in an emergency order.•. OCVS Virtual – This has been a fully accredited OCPS school model in place for 10 years. This provides location, time and pace flexibility.•. Innovative – OCPS [email protected] provides a live stream for each class, following a traditional bell schedule. This option provides location flexibility, while also offering continuity of student experience and campus connections, as well as wrap-around support services.Both the Innovative plan and the waiver request have been submitted to the state for approval.In the meantime, a choice registration survey has been sent out for parents to choose one of the three learning models. It’s interesting to note that the Board, in order to maximize safety efforts, encourages parents to select the OCPS [email protected], if able to keep their child at home.An assignment preference survey will also be sent to teachers to indicate which model they prefer to work in.Click here to review further the school reopening details.For more information on how to watch and participate in future Board meetings, they will be live-streamed on the School Board’s YouTube page and will be accessible from web browsers on computers or mobile devices. To find the live stream, visit www.boardmeetings.ocps.net. From the School Board of Orange County NewsroomIt was a grueling day and late night for the Orange County School Board (Board) meeting last week on Tuesday, July 14. A steady, assertive stream of parents, teachers and concerned residents shared their thoughts, emotions, questions and concerns on the topic of schools reopening next month in person and over the phone. The phone system that connected the callers had stops and starts, lost calls, and hard-to-hear moments, and the concerns voiced in a wide-range of intonation and manner. Despite the wearying length and heavy topic, the Board members persevered, professional to the end.Orange County Public School Board Members: FIRST ROW left to right: District 5 – The Honorable Dr. Kathleen “Kat” Gordon; The Honorable Teresa Jacobs, Chair; District 4 – The Honorable Pam Gould, Vice Chair; SECOND ROW, left to right: District 6 – The Honorable Dr. Karen Castor Dentel; District 1 – The Honorable Angie Gallo; District 3 – The Honorable Linda Kobert; District 7 – The Honorable Melissa Byrd; District 2 – The Honorable Johanna Lopez And the end finally, mercifully, came when it was agreed and approved to postpone their vote until the end of the week in order to better deliberate with more information. The follow up special Board meeting was set for Friday, July 17.The Board gathered again at 9AM, as scheduled last Friday, at the Ronald Blocker Educational Leadership Center, while also utilizing virtual conferencing. The highlights of the meeting were few and straight-forward:The School Board approved the proposed 2020-21 Florida’s Optional Innovative Reopening Plan (voted 6 to 2) to include an Innovative model called OCPS [email protected] TAGSCOVID-19OCPSOrange County Public SchoolsReopening PlanSchool BoardWaiver Previous articleDeSantis cites ‘much better’ COVID-19 trends, says Florida has ample hospital capacityNext articleOrange Co.

If approved, this would allow the Board to make the choice of if and when to reopen OCPS schools based on the local county data of COVID-19 cases and medical safety recommendations by Orange County health officials, rather than as directed from the Florida Department of Education in Tallahassee.“I feel it’s vital that we ensure the safety of our employees and children,” said Byrd. “[But] if we do open in August, I believe parents have great options and should choose the one that’s best for their family’s situation.”The Board set the start date, tentatively, for Friday, August 21.

Mountain ranges often appear to be sublime. Under a mantle of snow their enormity would seem to defy the possibility of architecture. Time does not pass. Eternity stands opposed to the fragility of human accomplishments. And yet contemporary architecture has a place in an ancient hamlet. A fact amply demonstrated by the recently constructed Mineral Lodge at an altitude of 1200 metres in Savoie. Save this picture!© N.BorelAs the site offers exceptional views of the surrounding mountains and valleys, the project makes use, perhaps emphasizes, this stunning and dramatic natural landscape. In such an impressive environment building must take place with a light hand. In this natural and majestic scene, building becomes an act which must be in dialogue with the immemoriality of the rocks’ own historical movements. The rocks fix time. Building therefore is the moment at which human time encounters geological time. The Mineral Lodge is a refuge of stones and rocks. As such it stands at a distance from the norms governing the tradition of recently constructed chalets. The latter are marked by an attempt to portray luxury. The hamlet of Villaroger has strict construction rules. The project which began with both the ruin of a farm – all that remained were the outside walls – and an adjacent pre-existing chalet offered the chance to construct a dialogue between a vernacular architectural presence and the contemporary desire for a sustainable architecture informed by the most recent technological developments. Save this picture!© N.BorelThis dialogue guided the construction. A physical link was created with the pre-existing chalet by providing a nine metre vertical opening between the buildings. In the new chalet the stonewall of the old chalet was left as it was. Careful reinterpretation of vernacular architecture accompanied the project. What matters therefore is the emergence of another chalet from a pre-existing ruin. This is an important undertaking because the Mineral Lodge establishes architecture in a place where previously there had not be architecture but mere building. The Lodge departed from a historical perspective and was inscribed in vision of the future. The stone house was not rebuilt. The project imagined possibilities for ruptures and transitions such as the square wooden box that is projected outside the glass wrap of the curtain-wall. This element acts as a reference to local overhang attics and addresses the typology of vernacular architecture. Save this picture!SectionA number of views on the landscape are provided: the ruins facing North are punctuated by an “observatory balcony” with a panoramic view. The second floor level delivers a variety of vistas. The roof takes an important role in the project. Instead of constructing another traditional wooden roof, a reinforced concrete roof serves as an envelop and allows for a more flexible use of space. Hight limitations imposed by regulations gave the opportunity to work on a variety of levels connected by different staircases. The interior space is thought as a series of sequences providing areas based on fluid and open circulations. The kitchen situated on the ground floor is covered by a large skylight. Save this picture!© N.BorelThe use of stone as surface cladding is visible throughout the project. The horizontal and vertical openings of the staircase volume could only have been constructed with concrete walls. From outside the openings which correspond to program are not immediately legible. Heightening thereby the effect of the surface. The idea of a visible relationship between the interior and exterior is abolished. At the same time, this strategy reflects the older chalets of the village in which the openings do not indicate what kind of space lies behind: bedroom, kitchen, living room… The Mineral Lodge’s wooden box has a singular contact to the stonewall. Each stone registers its relationship with each wooded panel. The latter adapting to accommodate the irregularity of the stones. Through this interaction fundamentally different materials achieve a subtle connection. Save this picture!© N.BorelEarthquake constraints and avalanche protection are integrated into the structural design. Mineral Lodge in terms of sustainability and energy consumption achieves the highest standards due to geothermal heating. A heat pump circulates water in three 150m deep drills in the rock where temperature is stable year round, and the presence of underfloor heating and double-flux ventilation means that the entire heating and cooling system is invisible. Save this picture!© N.BorelIn sum, the Mineral Lodge embedded in existing ruins yet not touching them creates an intermediary space. This interstitial space maintains as productive an ongoing tension between past and present. As a result, the Mineral Lodge offers an architectural environment without expressing any kind of traditionalism. In opposition to the conventional chalet where window sizes used to be constrained by thermal insulation, the Mineral Lodge offers more light into the house with high quality glass and framing. In the French Alps the traditional architectural expression in ski resorts have become a commercial slogan lacking any sense or interest. The Mineral Lodge is a rare attempt to counteract this nostalgia driven architectural predilection ever apparent in Savoie.

In 2001 the sector had over £68 billion of assets, of which £47 billion was invested in equities and bonds. Overwhelmingly (96%), the charities with a formal policy opted to screen out stocks such as tobacco and arms but did not engage directly with companiesby, for example, voting their shares at AGMs or discussing ways to improve social and environmental performance. Risk to reputation was the major consideration for those charities with anethical or SRI policy, while staff morale, the charities’ wider role in society and peer pressure from other charities also featured. The main obstacle to investing responsibly was trustees’ perception that ethical or SRI policies could lead to lower returns and therefore harm charities’ability to fund their work.A third of those charities with no policy said that they are planning to address the issue in the next 12 months.The research comes in the wake of proposals by the UK Government suggesting that large charities should follow the example of pension funds by reporting on the extent of their policies on social, environmental and ethical issues. In addition, the Charity Commission has given new encouragement to trustees to develop policies for ethical and sociallyresponsible investment.Duncan Green, Head of Research for Just Pensions and author of the report,said: “The findings of this report are worrying. Many charities could faceserious risks to their reputations if they fail to address these issues.”Cathy Pharoah, Director of Research at CAF added: “There are some majorpioneers of ethical and SRI within the sector. But with over 40% of thegeneral public saying they would prefer to support charities that invest ethically, and a further 14% only prepared to donate to charities that invest in this way, there is scope to go further still.”The report is available for download from the Justpensions Web site. Not enough charities investing responsibly Tagged with: Finance Management Howard Lake | 13 May 2003 | News Sixty per cent of the UK’s largest charities have no written ethical or socially responsible investment policy according to a new report.The report, “Do UK Charities Invest Responsibly?”, explores the investment policies and practices of the UK voluntary sector and in particular, the extent to which its funds are invested in a sociallyresponsible or ethical way. Its author is Duncan Green, Head of Research atJust Pensions.A collaboration between Just Pensions, CAF (Charities Aid Foundation), andEIRIS (Ethical Investment Research Service), the report is based on a survey of over 100 of the UK’s largest charities and foundations, together with in-depth interviews with a number of key informants.
