William Lupfer. Photo: Trinity Church Wall Street[Episcopal News Service] The Rev. William Lupfer resigned as rector of New York’s Trinity Church Wall Street on Jan. 3 after five years leading one of the most influential parishes in The Episcopal Church.In a brief letter to Trinity’s staff, Lupfer, 59, did not offer a specific reason for leaving, but Trinity spokesperson Patti Walsh said in an email that Lupfer is “discerning a new call outside of Trinity.”Lupfer wrote in his letter that he and his wife intend to “enjoy some sabbath rest to open our hearts to God’s call for the next chapter of our ministry together.”“While we will miss our many friends at Trinity, we are excited to incorporate the incredible learning we have been blessed with these past five years and move energetically into this next chapter of our lives,” Lupfer wrote.Effective Jan. 6, the Rev. Phillip A. Jackson – Trinity’s vicar – has been named priest-in-charge as the search for a new rector begins, the vestry wrote in a letter provided to Episcopal News Service. Lupfer plans to “recalibrate his ministry to discern a new call that incorporates all of what he has learned at Trinity with his love for aspects of ministry that the role of rector did not allow him to fully engage: being in much closer contact to the faithful people worshiping in the pews, while continuing strategic work with global mission partners and institutions to invest in their values,” the vestry wrote.Trinity’s communications staff did not answer questions from Episcopal News Service about the timing of Lupfer’s resignation, and Lupfer could not be reached for comment. As of Jan. 6, there had been no announcement on Trinity’s website or social media accounts about the resignation, but Lupfer was no longer listed on its staff page.Founded in 1697, Trinity was Manhattan’s first Anglican church. As a result of a land grant from Queen Anne, it owns 14 acres in lower Manhattan and has become a major real estate developer. It had a $6 billion portfolio as of February 2019 and acquired Church Divinity School of the Pacific, an Episcopal seminary in Berkeley, California, in March 2019.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Manor House Stables / AR Design Studio

first_imgphotographs:  Martin GardnerPhotographs:  Martin Gardner Text description provided by the architects. Friday April 5th 1946, on a beautifully clear Spring afternoon crowds cheered as the 25/1 racehorse, “Lovely Cottage”, strode triumphantly past the finishing post to be crowned winner of the Grand National, the UKs largest horse race. Trained by Tommy Rayson and ridden by Captain Robert Petre at the first true Aintree Grand National race since 1940, after the Second World War, and the last to take place on a Friday, which had been the tradition since 1876.   Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThat weekend “Lovely Cottage” returned home to the small village of Headbourne Worthy, near Winchester. He received a hero’s welcome before settling in for a well-earned rest in the stables at the Manor House where he was housed. These stables, that were once beautiful and functioning have since remained unused and have fallen into a state of dilapidation. Fortunately, this Grade 2 listed stable block, steeped in poignant historical character and narrative was not forgotten. It has been transformed into an elegant and contemporary 3 bedroom family home by RIBA award winning architects AR Design Studio. Save this picture!© Martin GardnerPractice Director, Andy Ramus, discovered this piece of overlooked historical heritage while undertaking a large scale refurbishment at the Manor House and immediately recognised its potential. The team at AR could see past its existing rundown state. There was a clear potential to create a sophisticated, contemporary family home within the historical context of the building and the picturesque Hampshire countryside.       Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThe history and character of the Stable’s was very much a driving force in design and there is a firm belief at AR Design Studio that design constraints and restrictions can often create the most interesting solutions. The concept was to preserve the existing while making any new additions simple and pure in order to let the original character shine. This results in an innovative arrangement of spaces according to the Stable’s existing layout, in order to maintain many of the existing exposed timber interior walls. These were then cleaned, stripped back and refurbished to reveal an exquisite amount of detailing and craftsmanship.   Save this picture!© Martin GardnerWith the existing internal walls brought back to life, the next task was to turn the Stables into a home for the modern family and bring it into the present day. In order to respect the character of the property a clean, contemporary and neutral approach was taken to the rest of the renovation which juxtaposes perfectly with the original timber walls, allowing them to stand out as pieces of art against a beautifully simple contemporary backdrop. Many of the existing features were refurbished and re-purposed for use in the home environment; the original horse troughs were cleaned and converted for use as sink basins, the old horse ties act as towel rings in the bathrooms and original doors are preserved where possible to give a sense of real period character.   Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThe Stables benefits from 3 large double bedrooms, with 2 en suite rooms to accompany a spacious family bathroom. Being a single storey property with long continuous views, the layout was tailored and split between sleeping and living accommodation with a single constant circulation running through the entire building. The welcoming and spacious open-plan kitchen dining area is conveniently located at the heart of the home, leading into the light and roomy lounge which benefits from full height glazed doors that open out onto the sleepy village setting.     Save this picture!© Martin GardnerThe entire property is super insulated, and the heated polished concrete floor throughout provides a functional uniformity to the spaces as well as recounting the Stable’s agricultural history. New windows and roof lights fitted throughout give the whole place a warm, bright and clean feel; creating an excellent environment as a backdrop for a family home.   Save this picture!PlanThe finished Stables is completely transformed from its existing dilapidated condition and is now a perfectly working family home, bursting with contemporary style juxtaposed against delightful period character.

It is a house for a family of four built on a steep slope unique to Hiroshima. The site is elongated in the north-south direction, the north side of the site is connected to a narrow road, and the south side is a cliff with a height of more than 10 meters. The north side of the site is in contact with a narrow road, and old houses are densely built along the road. The road is just for the residents’ cars to pass, and the children living in the neighborhood are playing there.Save this picture!Courtesy of UENOAOn the other hand, on the south side of the site, the mountains are connected to the end of the cliff, and nature contrasts with the high-density residential area on the north side. We considered incorporating the “two-sided nature of the environment” on the north and south sides of the site into this house. This house is based on the standard form of a two-story and gabled roof with reference to the surrounding houses. Furthermore, by adjusting the angle of the ridge to an angle perpendicular to the slope, a gable type in which the ridge is offset from the center is created.Save this picture!Courtesy of UENOASave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of UENOAThis breaks the formalized gable mold and strengthens the sense of connecting the two contrasting environments. The plane was based on a rectangle, and was a deformed hexagon, with the ridges aligned with the ridges. This aims to act autonomously, avoiding that the outside of a building becomes a leftover place. Furthermore, inside the building, this small angle of operation produces actions around the window such as “desk”, “upstairs of stairs”, “workbench of kitchen” and “bookshelf”.Save this picture!Courtesy of UENOASave this picture!Section DiagramSave this picture!Model 1Save this picture!Diagram 1In this way, the inside and the outside of the building are created to be equivalent. In this house, space is divided by skipping floors instead of walls. The south and north faces have large windows that open up their environment. A family lives while moving between two environments, a residential area on the north side and a nature on the south side, on a daily basis. We were thinking about how to get the psychological breadth by folding the two largely different environments into a small house.Save this picture!Courtesy of UENOAProject gallerySee allShow lessLayered Frames Workplace / Bean BuroSelected ProjectsFe3O4 House / Crosson ArchitectsSelected Projects Share eureka, Takuo Nagai Year:  CopyHouses•Hiroshima, Japan Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Lead Architects: Architects: UENOA Year Completion year of this architecture project “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/921370/para-house-uenoa Clipboard PARA House / UENOA CopyAbout this officeUENOAOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHiroshimaJapanPublished on July 25, 2019Cite: “PARA House / UENOA” 24 Jul 2019.

Climate crisis poses life-and-death threat to people with disabilities

first_img“It’s time to recognize climate change as a disability rights issue” was the headline for an article by Tiffany Yu, founder of  DiversABILITY. (Rooted in Rights, Dec. 11, 2017) DiversABILITY is a movement and organization dedicated to raising disability awareness and reshaping conceptions of ability. When Yu was nine years old, a car accident killed her father and left her with brachial plexus palsy — a loss of movement or weakness in the arm due to damage to the nerves that send signals from the spine to the arm. After the bones in her leg healed, she had to relearn how to write (she was originally right-handed).“We — the disability community — are the ones who need to be at the forefront of this movement,” Yu wrote. “When it comes down to it, climate justice is about people and climate change is a human rights issue. Climate change impacts vulnerable communities like mine  the most. Opportunity and justice cannot be an afterthought. …“Global temperatures have been increasing. Sixteen of the 17 hottest years on record have occurred since 2001. Extreme heat events cause more deaths annually in the U.S. than all other extreme weather events combined. “Some members of the disability community are especially vulnerable to extreme heat events due to increased sensitivity to keeping our body temperatures cool enough. For example, people with multiple sclerosis have been shown to experience greater pain and fatigue on hot days, and some people with spinal cord injuries don’t have the ability to sweat as a means of cooling down.”The United Nations Human Rights Council adopted a resolution on climate change and the rights of people with disabilities on July 12. The resolution calls on governments to adopt a disability-inclusive approach when taking action to address climate change. The U.S. government still refuses to ratify the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Approximately one in five people in the United States has a disability! In 2005 Hurricane Katrina exposed numerous problems that impact people with disabilities during the climate-related disaster: not enough wheelchair-accessible transportation; short supplies of prescription medication and medical equipment like oxygen; lack of evacuation shelters with appropriate facilities; power outages that affect medical equipment, air conditioning and elevators; and a shortage of staff trained to meet the various needs of disabled people. The National Council on Disability estimated that 155,000 people with disabilities were living in three of the Gulf Coast cities hardest hit by Katrina. Almost half of the deaths from Katrina were people over age 75 (less than 6 percent of the population in the area), with over 10 percent of total deaths occurring in nursing homes. Socioeconomic factors create problemsIn a 2016 article,“Climate Change, Extreme Heat, and People with Disabilities,”   Alex Ghenis, a policy and research specialist at the World Institute on Disability and a person with a spinal cord injury disability, warned: “Socioeconomic factors, such as disproportionate rates of poverty and substandard housing for people with disabilities, create other problems; notably lower air-conditioner ownership or, if housing has air conditioning, not enough money to run it regularly. … “[The] dislocation caused by rising sea levels, water shortages and climate-related conflicts [will create according to] The International Organization for Migration [approximately] over 100,000 ‘climate migrants’ by 2050 and many millions more will be forced to leave their homes, [disparately impacting] people with disabilities [because of ] a lack of accessible transportation or housing.” (tinyurl.com/y3cppgum) There are many examples of how heat waves affect people with disabilities. Edward Yudelovich of the Workers World New York City Disabilities bureau, a person with a psychological emotional disability, was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia and treated with antipsychotic drugs for five years when he was in his twenties. After another psychiatrist corrected the misdiagnosis and weaned him off the addictive medication, he was horrified to learn from his comrades in the disability rights movement that antipsychotic drugs can impair the body’s ability to regulate temperature, so that during a heat wave, such drugs can  literally “fry the brain!” Mary Kaessinger, a People’s MTA activist with a mobility disability — multiple sclerosis for the past 40 years — says: “I can take the heat until it reaches 75˚F.  If it gets any warmer, then I start to have trouble breathing. I put on a cooling vest which has four ice packs in it. That keeps my body temperature cool. I also wear a cooling hat which I soak in cold water for 20 minutes.  “I am also more susceptible to falling out of my scooter because the heat makes me much weaker. When it gets to 85˚F, the only recourse is staying home if you can afford air conditioning or hanging out at your local air-conditioned grocery store or air-conditioned public facility like the Brooklyn Academy of Music. “The enforced poverty for disabled people in which we are cornered into remaining poor in order to protect our health insurance and benefits makes us more vulnerable from the climate crisis. Contrast this with Socialist Cuba and China which put disabled people first when responding to climate-caused emergencies!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Most notably, he was the inventor (with Beno Gutenberg) of the Richter Magnitude Scale.Richter and his wife Lillian rest side by side in the leafy Mountain Meadows area of the cemetery that dates back to 1882 and is also home to the remains of physicist Richard Feynman, sci-fi writer Octavia Butler, and television Superman George Reeves.“There’s been a small but seismic shift in the Richter family grave location inquires,” punned Denny Dormody, Mountain View’s funeral director. “More students and history buffs are coming to pay homage to the professor that gave a name to the levels of earthquakes at home in Southern California and across the world.”Today’s scientists and seismologists have the latest in technology to predict a quake, but Richter would likely bury the idea of forecasting the shakers.For while he was a student and teacher of plate tectonics and Earth movement, he is perhaps best known for his quote: “Only fools, liars and charlatans predict earthquakes.”It is a phrase that still resonates in scientific circles today.There is also a song named after him, called “Richter Scale,” that was supposedly written and then sung to him by Caltech colleagues at his retirement party. Richter died from congestive heart failure in 1985 at the age of 85.Mountainview Cemetery offers walking tours and the gates are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Herbeauty15 things only girls who live life to the maximum understandHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyKim To File For Divorce From Kanye West After 6 Years Of MarriageHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNutritional Strategies To Ease AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Yoga Poses To Overcome Stress And AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeauty Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Link between IIP standard and training

first_img Previous Article Next Article Link between IIP standard and trainingOn 23 May 2000 in Personnel Today Pharmaceutical companies with Investors in People status appear more prepared to accept the costs associated with training employees with specialist skills, according to a study carried out for the Pharmaceutical Industry National Training Organisation (PhINTO).But the survey shows achieving IIP itself presents barriers to small- and medium-sized enterprises. Among employers with more than 1,000 employees, the proportion with IIP status is above the national target.The National Learning Targets are more comfortably met, reflecting the high skill base of the industry. Fifty-three per cent of industry employees have at least an NVQ level 4 (against a national target of 28 per cent), and this proportion is even higher among the small- to medium-sized establishments. Annual graduate recruitment is equivalent to more than 2 per cent of total staff numbers. One of the report’s recommendations is that PhINTO helps set up training standards and industry-wide occupational standards for areas highly specific to the pharmaceutical industry, such as regulatory affairs and patenting.PhINTO executive Ian Irving said, “This report provides critical evidence for the industry’s skills development and planning. It confirms our assessments of the extent of the industry and provides the hard facts that enable us to focus on delivering the key skills for the future. Its recommendations will help us maintain a world-class industry at the heart of the UK economy.” Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. last_img read more
