Deputies’ president ought to be paid fees for work, committee…

first_img July 5, 2018 at 3:53 am This is a mistake. The President of the House of Deputies is a volunteer position. You are now making it a staff position. The role is to chair as part of the National Convention and attend national meetings. The National Church forgets the perception that struggling local churches with ASA of 57 people on Sunday see when you professionalize volunteers. I would like to see a wider tightening of standards across the church. Do Bishops really need to fly First Class? What are standard per diem costs? Can church leaders expensed alcohol? An easy standard is to use rules by the federal government.

Dr. John Paddock says: Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector Albany, NY July 5, 2018 at 10:24 am Your question was answered decades ago when the General Convention decided that the role of the Presiding Bishop needed to be a full-time position in order for The Episcopal Church to keep up with its role as one of the member provinces of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Take a look at the annual calendar of the Presiding Bishop and then answer this question: “Could any diocesan bishop effectively do his/her job while also accomplishing what the Presiding Bishop’s calendar expects of him/her? Remember that the Presiding Bishop travels extensively and for long periods of time, in order to be a contributing presence among the dioceses of our church and among the Primates of the Anglican Communion. Could your own bishop afford to be out of the office for those lengths of time, and could he/she have the time to study and write about the issues which the Presiding Bishop must address, while at the same time maintain an effective presence within your diocese?” Another question might similarly be: “Do you really know what your own diocesan bishop does?” Submit a Job Listing July 5, 2018 at 10:37 am I don’t think a decades old decision (that was probably taken when the church was in its ascendancy) answers my question today. I’m not sure why I need a “contributing presence” from the Presiding Bishop…it seems to me that he spends most of his time working on a personal political agenda that has nothing to do with me or my faith. Aside from confirmations and ordinations, I really don’t know what my diocesan bishop does, but I suspect that if he stopped doing it, I might not notice. Perhaps both the Presiding Bishop and my diocesan bishop should worry more about what parishioners expect of them than what their calendars expect of them.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] A General Convention legislative committee said July 4 that General Convention ought to adopt a resolution that would pay the president of the House of Deputies director’s and officer’s fees “for specific services rendered in order to fulfill duties required by the church’s Constitution and Canons.”Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.Legislative Committee 16 – Churchwide Leadership spent three hours discussing three resolutions, each proposing a different way to compensate the deputies’ president. The committee members also heard from five witnesses and Episcopal Church Chief Legal Officer Doug Anning before making their decision.“We’ve taken historic action,” Diocese of Maryland Assistant Bishop Chilton Knudsen, chair of the House of Bishops Committee 16, told the committee after its unanimous vote to recommend Resolution B014 for adoption.Each house has the same legislative committees, and they regularly meet together to hear testimony and debate resolutions. Bishop and deputy members vote separately.The issue of compensating the president has been discussed for decades. General Convention considered the salary issue in 1997, 2000 and 2015. Each time, the deputies were clear that they wanted to see their president compensated.The question of a salary for the House of Deputies president prompted a rare conference committee between bishops and deputies in the waning hours of the last convention. The 2015 meeting of convention eventually agreed to postpone making a decision, instead calling for the presiding bishop and the president of the House of Deputies to appoint a task force to study the issue.In addition to chairing the House of Deputies during convention, the president also is canonically required to serve as vice chair of Executive Council and vice president of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society, or DFMS, the nonprofit corporate entity through which the Episcopal Church owns property and does business. He or she has a wide swath of appointment powers. The president also travels around the church, speaking at conferences and other gatherings and meeting with deputies and other Episcopalians.The position, which is filled by election during each meeting of convention, has a travel budget and a paid assistant. Each president is limited to three consecutive terms.Supporters say making the office a paid job in some way would broaden the pool of people able to consider running for election. The task force said that only people who are older and/or have what it called favorable “personal economic circumstances” can realistically hold the office. Thus, presidents are not always chosen based solely on gifts and skills, the members said.Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania Bishop Sean Rowe testifies July 4 to the Legislative Committee 16 – Churchwide Leadership about Resolution B014 dealing with compensation for the House of Deputies president. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceDiocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania Bishop Sean Rowe, B014’s proposer, told the committee during the open hearing on the resolution that the reason the issue of compensation for the House of Deputies president failed in the House of Bishops in each of the last three attempts “has to do with the matter of polity.”The resolution recognizes that the president of the House of Deputies has “extraordinary duties, that it is a matter of justice, that it is a matter of the pool of candidates that could present themselves for such a position [in its current unpaid form] and that it is fair for what the Constitution and Canons require of the position that it be compensated.”Rowe told the committee that he would “put the cards on the table” and say that bishops wanted “nothing that looks like a co-primate, nothing that creates another independent body within the church structure.”Diocese of Western New York Bishop Bill Franklin, one of the two required endorsers of B014, told the committee that the resolution recognizes that the position of president has evolved beyond that of a volunteer. The resolution is “completely in line with the historic evolution through which the office of the presiding bishop came to be compensated.”“Our proposal proposes a similar step-by-step model,” he said, adding that it was a model “that could be adjusted in the future as the needs arise.”Diocese of Southern Ohio Bishop Tom Breidenthal is the other B014 endorser.Others disagree with any proposal to pay the deputies’ president, some saying they fear “mission creep” and those polity implications in the form of an expansion of the president’s duties and authority. Some cite Resolution A099 proposed to this convention that would allow the president to call a meeting of the House of Deputies at times other than the triennial gathering of convention.The Rev. Stan Runnels, an outgoing member of the Executive Council from the Diocese of West Missouri, told the committee that he was concerned about the polity questions. Runnels said there is no mention in the church’s constitution that provides for the House of Deputies president to be what he called “a presiding or senior officer of the Episcopal Church.”Runnels also suggested that not all the work that recent presidents have taken on is mandated by the constitution and could be delegated to others. The presidents “increased the burden of the position” by choosing to take on that work, he said.Diane Pollard, chair of the Task Force to Study Church Leadership and Compensation, signs up July 4 to testify to Legislative Committee 16 – Churchwide Leadership about Resolutions A028 (proposed by the task force) and B014, proposed by Diocese of Northwestern Pennsylvania Bishop Sean Rowe. She told the committee it could support either one. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe Task Force to Study Church Leadership and Compensation, called for by the 78th General Convention, concluded in its report to this meeting of convention that the work of the House of Deputies president amounts to a full-time job. Its Resolution A028 calls for a salary but does not set an amount.Runnels was specifically testifying against that resolution. He was one of five people who testified, and the only one who opposed either A028 or B014.The task force asked Executive Council to include a proposed salary in the draft 2019-2021 budget, which it gave to the Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance (PB&F) in January. The task force did not suggest an amount, but council included $900,000 for a full-time salary and benefits for the three years in the draft budget (line 557 here).Resolution C042, from Province IV, proposes a different approach to the salary issue. It would have Executive Council set what it calls per diem compensation for the president when she or he is at council meetings, consults with the presiding bishop in making appointments required by canon, and is doing official work related to General Convention. Calling it a way to address the “short-term fairness issue of compensating the president,” the resolution also proposes that a special task force “clarify and enumerate the comprehensive role” of the president.Rowe had proposed B014 last week to direct the Executive Council to pay the president director’s fees as a possible compromise between the other two resolutions. During debate on July 4, the committee amended the resolutions to fully describe the fees as both director’s and officer’s fees.The amendment, Rowe said in proposing it, ensures that the resolution “conforms with New York State law and allows us to expand the range of motion that Executive Council can have and, again, it has no effect on polity,” he said.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is the Episcopal News Service’s senior editor and reporter. July 5, 2018 at 8:08 am I don’t understand why the Presiding Bishop needs to be a full-time, paid position. Why couldn’t one of the diocesan bishops preside at National Convention and national meetings. It seems to me that the important work of the Episcopal Church is done at the parish level.

Gary Street wins UK Coach of the Year as England Women’s RWC Winner

first_imgTuesday Nov 25, 2014 Gary Street wins UK Coach of the Year as England Women’s RWC Winner England Women’s coach Gary Street picked up two awards at the UK Coaching Awards in Glasgow. He insists he has already identified the next crop of England youngsters ready to match the achievements of this season’s record-breakers.  Head coach Street masterminded England to their first ever Women’s Rugby World Cup title in August as they recorded a 21-9 win over Canada in the final in Paris.The success has earned the team much adulation and nominations with Street the latest to benefit at the UK Coaching Awards, supported by Gillette.Street was named both High Performance and UK Coach of the Year at the Awards, which celebrate outstanding successes and achievements of some of the UK’s top coaches from a variety of different standards and sporting disciplines.A number of players from England’s World Cup-winning squad have since retired though, including the likes of Margaret Alphonsi, Joanna McGilchrist and Katherine Merchant who won 195 international caps between them.But former scrum-half Street claims the next batch of players are ready and eager to make a mark of their own. “Winning the World Cup was amazing – it had been a long time coming,” he said. “It was great to see all the girls who were retiring go out on top.“They had put a hell of a lot of work in and they deserved their last game for England to be a World Cup final. They deserve their rest, hopefully they will have some good memories and we will build again.“We’ve got an amazing programme and I’ve picked five 18 year olds in the current England squad on the basis that they’re good enough already – so it’s exciting times. There’s the Six Nations and the World 7s series with the Rio Olympics coming up. We’ve got a battle on two fronts and we will have to juggle the squads but that’s my job to do.”Street, who first got involved with the women’s game in 1992 and took over as head coach of the England team seven years ago, also led the Red Rose to six consecutive Six Nations Championships, including four Grand Slams, before missing out to France in this year’s edition.But Street was quick to point out the effort of his entire coaching team and the positive impact the recognition would have on women’s rugby after receiving his awards from HRH The Princess Royal, who is a patron of Sports Coach UK.“The award isn’t just for me – it’s for the whole coaching staff, backroom staff and the players performing,” he added. “It’s nice to go and pick up these things but it’s about the lasting effect and getting people playing rugby – it’s about kids playing sport generally.“I think recognition will help women’s sport grow – nights like these need to keep going so people are aware of what the sporting landscape looks like.“Gillette’s participation is fantastic – it’s a great partnership between them and Sport Coach UK. The quality of coaches from grassroots through to elite level is wonderful and long may it continue.”Gary Street was speaking at the UK Coaching Awards, supported by Gillette.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error England Rugby Related Articles 42 WEEKS AGO The Dylan Hartley Eddie Jones saga shows… 44 WEEKS AGO IT’S FINALLY TIME: All you need to know ahead… 46 WEEKS AGO Eddie Jones responds and explains thought… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

This project is the result of a competition run by Madrid’s Municipal Housing Agency at the end of 2003. The philosophy of the competition was that each team would offer the best architecture solution that was able to imagine, subject to compliance with the “economic” parameters for the lot; maximum surface to be built and number of dwellings, and always considering that it is a social housing development.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeRecommended ProductsWoodAccoyaAccoya® CanalsCoffee tablesBoConceptMadrid Coffee Table AD21StonesNeolithSintered Stone – Beton – Fusion CollectionIt was the choice of the contestants to decide whether a “measured” solution that would meet the other urban planning conditions of floor occupation, alignments, heights, etc.., or if, as was our case, raised a proposal that needed further planning changes. Our winning proposal was a tower of 22 floors.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe project can be explained in many ways, but there is one to which we do not like to resign, that has to do with the floor plan’s efficiency and the resolution of a given functional program such as housing. We deal with apartments “for rent” that are characterized by their small size, as they are, from sheltered housing, those most in line with the minimum dimensional regulations.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoThe project builds a total of 132 one and two bedrooms housing units, for a net floor area of 9000 sqm plus 300 sqm of ground floor commercial use.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoAbove ground, the building occupies 70% of the limit set by the alignment of the façades, with a general setback to liberate more public space on the front sidewalk access and natural relief of ground floor commercial use. This setback can avoid the typical chamfers of the area planning and work with sharper volume geometry.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeFor a certain floor area, reducing the footprint of the building necessarily implies growing in height and in this case we propose a shaped volume with a profile proportions, lets say, uncommon. One might think of the building as an aggregation of a tower and a block by a central body, but we are more interested in the idea of a free development in height, where the balance between the parts and the whole is somewhat disturbing.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoThe floor plan solution is based on the geometric process of “double symmetry”, as in the ambigrams, which are words or figures that can be read alike when rotated 180 degrees. This strategy works to blur the different parts as the order of each one is not clear and becomes associated with the order of the others. It also has to do with the fact that the building, as a free block, is perceived as a piece in which there is no distinction between front and rear or beginning and end, and responds similarly to both the access road as to the green zone that runs lengthwise on the other front.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoOnly in a clinical cut of this mixed development, we would begin to understand how diversity has ordered the program. Although all the apartments have 1 or 2 bedrooms, the smallest elements are set in height, and developed on one floor, while the duplex, as repetition of functionally undifferentiated units, occupy the longitudinal development of the plinth. The homes are not the result of an a priori subdivision of the plant but are solved interlaced both in plan and section.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoThe duplex units are composed of two versatile rooms that cross section to enjoy both North and South directions. By having access by the first floor can respond to both, the characteristic use (planning) of housing or to tertiary application, commercial and offices at the first floor and hosting at any level above ground floor.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoAs indeed there are many ways of explaining a project, there is another one that deals with the urban character of the building, with the construction of the city and the need to, somehow, characterize new residential tissues, in this case of Madrid, that as many others lack of intention in its definition.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoIn this sense the project works on several levels. The outer shell uses resources of non-differentiation and scale ambiguity. It is a skin of zinc scales set in horizontal bands that slide one over another with a slight offset, and in which voids are inserted with the intention of not making clear the floor levels. We propose a combinatorial system of recognizable types of housing windows which are placed at the best position from the inside of the rooms.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoOn this support structure of unity and also of diversity, are added some projecting crates, that as free forms of distortion, introduce a slight vibration on the elevation.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoThe relationship between the concepts of “coexistence of scales” and “scaling ambiguity”, what is big and what is small along with what is not revealed either as large or small, establishes the dialogue that occurs in other settings by the historic city and the successive developments that occur in it over the time.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoThe relationship between the concepts of “coexistence of scales” and “scaling ambiguity”, what is big and what is small along with what is not revealed either as large or small, establishes the dialogue that occurs in other settings by the historic city and the successive developments that occur in it over the time.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoIn this way we mix day-to-day and extraordinary, the regular domestic window that corresponds to a clear functional order with extraordinary placements, removing the composition and helping to understand the whole as a uniform mass.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoThere is also a third way of explaining the project that could be the titled as “architecture and technique”, which deals with the fitting of ideas to make them buildable. In developing the execution project and during the construction process occurs filtering of legislation, planning, budgeting, constructive feasibility and, above all, the real spatial translation of the topics raised.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoThus, the zinc facade becomes the central argument not only for its physical implementation, but also as an energy efficiency strategy. We propose a low maintenance solution, ventilated, which facilitates the transpiration of the facade, protects the building from rainwater infiltration and prevents interstitial condensation. It involves the optimization of acoustic and thermal insulation of the building, which being located on the outside of the brick walls, avoids possible thermal bridges.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoIn the hot season, it produces a “chimney effect”, the sun heats the air standing in the chamber, rising by convection and forcing fresh air to enter on the lower part of the façade, preventing the accumulation of heat in the inter layer space.Save this picture!© Montserrat ZamoranoIn winter, however, solar radiation is not sufficient to produce the movements of air and ventilated facade acts as a heat accumulator to produce the opposite effect.Save this picture!Cortesía de Estudio EntresitioProject gallerySee allShow less2013 Urban Edge Award Winners: Marion Weiss and Michael ManfrediArticlesSave the Prentice Wrecking Ball: The Monument to Bruce / Design With CompanyArticlesProject locationAddress:Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Indiana Members Going All Out for FFA Week

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Members Going All Out for FFA Week 2015 National FFA WeekNational FFA week is underway, continuing a week long tradition that started in 1948. The national board selected this week in recognition of George Washington’s legacy as an agriculturist and farmer. There are many events planned to highlight FFA in schools across Indiana, and it’s a busy and exciting week for the state officer team that will blanket the state.“It is very exciting for us as state officers because we have the opportunity to be broken up across the great state of Indiana and be able to experience some of the chapters we don’t generally get to spend a lot of time with,” said Lindsey O’Hara, Northern Region Vice President. “So this is our opportunity to spend some one on one time with those chapters.”She agreed the visit by a state office is a big deal at the chapter level.“As a high school FFA member we spent a lot of time planning what we were going to do that week and it was always a highlight if one of the state officers could come to our school. We had a breakfast the end of FFA week and we’d invite all the students, administrators and teachers to come to celebrate the teachers and what they do for education.”She will travel to southern Indiana and plans to share her passion for FFA and get members pumped up for the state convention coming in June.“I will be attending Paoli FFA down in southern Indiana and I’ll be attending a breakfast there,” she told HAT. “I will also be attending South Knox for one of their chapter meetings and I’ll have the opportunity to present them some team building activities. Then I will be attending Southridge for a chapter visit and educating the students who aren’t quite sure if they want to join, don’t know very much but would like to.”State FFA Sentinel Derek Berkshire will hit the District 7 and 8 portion of southern Indiana.“Some of the highlights I’m really excited about are a lockin at Owen Valley, so it’s exciting to see what activities they have planned, and I’ll be at a lot of breakfasts and staff lunches as well to promote the brand of FFA and getting to interact with those members and friends that I’ve made.”The FFA week theme for 2015 is Go All Out.

first_imgMGM Resorts International(LAS VEGAS) — An attempted robbery at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas ended in a gunfight between police and the suspect late Friday.The suspect attempted to carjack someone at the valet, but was confronted immediately by four uniformed officers.The man turned and fired at least one shot in the direction of an officer, who was struck in the chest, police said.A second officer returned fire, striking the suspect.“The officer had his bulletproof vest on, which probably saved his life,” Las Vegas Police Department Capt. Nichole Splinter said.He was treated and released, police said.The suspect was also struck in the chest and remains in critical condition.There were two robberies at the Bellagio in 2017.
