  • Initial structural changes recommended for Anglican Church of Canada

    first_img Rector Belleville, IL Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Hopkinsville, KY Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Collierville, TN Rector Knoxville, TN [Anglican Journal — Mississauga, Ontario] The Anglican Church of Canada’s Council of General Synod on March 16 recommended that the coming General Synod adopt a constitutional amendment that would alter the nature of all but two of its standing committees as part of initial changes to the national church’s structures.Under the proposed amendment to Section 39 of the General Synod Handbook, the pension committee and financial management committee would remain as standing committees of General Synod, and five would function as coordinating committees.Co-coordinating committees would be limited to five members, a reduction from the current range of between seven to 12 in standing committees. The proposed coordinating committees are: faith, worship and ministry; partners in mission and eco-justice; resources for mission; communications and information resources; and Anglican Journal.After lengthy discussions, workshops and straw polls held over a three-day period, the council approved other motions that recommended a number of the restructuring proposals made in January by a national consultation. Forty participants were convened at that meeting by Archbishop Fred Hiltz to review the church’s structures as mandated by Vision 2019, the church’s strategic plan.The council did not, however, recommend the proposal to reduce the frequency of its in-person meetings, from six to four times in the triennium, and to hold more regular and frequent communication using electronic means.Instead, members left it up to the next council — which will include new members elected at the General Synod meeting this July — to “review the length and number of physically gathered meetings to minimize costs while ensuring it effectively fulfills its governance mandate.”It also “encouraged” the officers of General Synod and the next council to “consider carefully what business of [council], in part or in entirety, might be done at any point in the year using communication information technologies and electronic methods of meeting.”Some council members had questions, suggestions and at times, varying expressions of concerns and “anxieties” about decisions made on other proposals.“We’re not cutting where we need to cut. We need to be more brave about more things,” said the Rev. Lynne McNaughton, from the ecclesiastical province of British Columbia and Yukon.British Columbia Bishop James Cowan shared the sentiment, saying that some of the changes don’t go far enough.Lela Zimmer, also from the ecclesiastical province of British Columbia and Yukon, questioned the “arbitrary setting” of committee membership at five. She said the faith, worship and ministry committee, of which she is a member, has been “benefitted by more voices brought to the table” and “cross-fertilization” of ideas.Janet Marshall, who facilitated the consultation, explained to council that five was deemed a good number for committee membership owing to the church’s geographical spread, the number of its provinces, and for achieving a level of comfort and effectiveness at meetings held electronically.Canon Gene Packwood, clergy representative of the ecclesiastical province of Rupert’s Land, asked how much savings would be generated by the proposed changes to the composition of committees and frequency of in-person meetings.“A lot depends on the decrease in committee size and how much travel” will be reduced, said General Synod treasurer Hanna Goschy. “It could be a couple of hundred thousands.”Archdeacon Michael Thompson, the church’s general secretary, said that while these changes are “not the panacea that will address all financial challenges before us,” it would help “set us for leaner preparations” down the road.Meanwhile, the council, in another motion, also called on General Synod to flag as “a matter of priority,” the national consultation’s proposal to conduct operational reviews on the effectiveness of the Resources for Mission (RFM), the national church’s communications vehicles, and its informational technology capacity to support electronic meetings of councils and committees.The motion did not go into such specifics as time frame or how the reviews would be conducted.A review of the RFM will look into the effectiveness of the church’s “investment in fundraising, stewardship and planned giving,” according to documents prepared by members of the structures working group.In the area of communications, the review would look at the role and practices of the Anglican Journal, the General Synod communications website and the Anglican Video and assess their impact on dioceses and other ministries. It will also study new and emerging practices in media, the practices of other churches, and recommend ways of building communication capacities, said the documents.Thompson explained that the review was in keeping with Vision 2019’s goal of having “a national communication platform, integrated and accessible at the parish, diocesan, and national levels.” He acknowledged that it was “an enormous and daunting goal,” and the church was looking at external resources for the review.The council also requested the primate and the church’s metropolitans (senior bishops) to initiate” a review of the House of Bishops’ role and the focus and frequency of its meetings, which were recommended in the consultation report.Archbishop Colin Johnson, diocesan bishop of the diocese of Toronto and metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of Ontario, said the work of restructuring was “a lot like trying to lose weight.” Even losing a few pounds by giving up on some sweets, cutting down on meat and potatoes, and exercising more means one “will last longer,” said Johnson, who is also a member of the structures working group.

METRO began the project for a new Casa Triângulo by collaborating with their clients on an extensive search for a site suitable for one of Brazil’s most important contemporary art galleries, which has already been in operation for 28 years. This partnership ensured that that the property on Rua Estados Unidos (one of Sao Paulo’s most distinctive streets) was not simply chosen based on its physical location, but was also selected for the characteristics of an existing structure that would allow for a rapid conversion into a substantial exhibition space. The resultant gap between design and construction was just 11 months.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiThe new building is conceived as a single large volume, housing two exhibition areas, the collection’s storage, administration and support areas totalling approximately 500sqm spread over three levels (ground, mezzanine and first floors). At almost 5m, the height of the main exhibition area is equivalent to that of the Sao Paulo’s Biennale Pavillion, making the new Casa Triângulo one of the few galleries in town with proportions of this scale.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Leonardo FinottiRegarding the external areas, the façade facing onto Rua Cristóvão Diniz – less exposed to flows of traffic than Estados Unidos – is defined by a courtyard demarcated by the extension of the concrete flooring of the gallery and at its lengeth by a pre-cast concrete bench. This helps suggest a public character conducive to both event days and the daily use of pedestrians. This is complemented by a second asphalt and gravel area which may be used for loading and unloading works of art, but also activated as additional external event space. The area fronting Rua Estados Unidos is reserved for general-access parking. Translucent polycarbonate panels form the entire perimeter of the gallery allowing for natural lighting and transparency during the day, whilst in reverse, transmitting it at night. Large pivoting openings found within these continuous panels, reinforce the permeability between interior and exterior.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiMaterials have been selected for their efficiency at the detailing stage, either because they were prefabricated or did not require excessive finishing during construction. The polycarbonate and cement panels used on the external facade and in the lining of the main exhibition area, together with the expanded steel grills covering the ceiling, are examples of such materials.Save this picture!© Leonardo FinottiProject gallerySee allShow lessTesla Unveils Fully-Integrated Solar Roof SystemArchitecture News7 Scary Architectural Elements That Wouldn’t Meet Building Code Requirements TodayArticles Share Area:  450 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Architects: Metro Arquitetos Associados Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeMetro Arquitetos AssociadosOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSão PauloSao PauloBrazilPublished on October 31, 2016Cite: “New Casa Triângulo / Metro Arquitetos Associados” 31 Oct 2016.

  • There was a smart poet from Limerick….

    first_imgLinkedin A CALL has been made for a Limerick home for the humble Limerick.And aspiring rhymesters are invited to bring their Limericks to the Limerick competition in, of course, Limerick on Saturday, August 25 when Dolan’s Music Venue on the Dock Road will play host to the scribes.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Up for grabs is the chance to become this year’s champion Limerick writer and walk away with a cheque for €500, not a bad return for a five line poem.The event, now in its sixth year, has attracted entries from all over the world from fans of the funny (though often ribald, irreverent, and, sometimes vulgar) five line poem. Once again this year, the organisers stress the connection between the verse and the place.Festival director Lisa Gibbons said, “The delightful simplicity of the Limerick verse, with its five lines and an aabba rhyme scheme, has given it the moniker of ‘the People’s Poetry’. At its core lies humour and a sense of the absurd. This is its defining feature and through which it has maintained its popularity.“This, and the playful subversiveness of the Limerick, combine to make it an ideal vehicle for parody and mockery of modern society”, she said.“The hope is to make the competition an integral part of the cultural life of the city and region and further the aim of making the Limerick verse form synonymous with the city of Limerick. Our ultimate aim is to make Limerick the world centre for this famous verse form.“In the longer term, I think we should explore the idea of having a centre for the Limerick here in the city. Such a premises would house books and exhibits relating to the ‘Limerick’ and as a venue would occasionally host readings of ‘Limericks’ and workshops for visitors,” Ms Gibbons added.Entries are now been taken for the competition and local, national and international wordsmiths are encouraged to take part.

In the larger markets, inventory grew 11 percent annually. This pace amounted to approximately 73,000 additional listings. February also marked the fifth consecutive month of inventory growth.“This is the fifth consecutive month that we’ve seen housing inventory increase, especially in large markets,” said Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at realtor.com. “As is often the case in real estate, the important trends are going on at the local level. We see large markets continue to cool, but some markets still have some strength.”However, the pace of home sales has remained unchanged with homes in February remaining on the market for an average of 83 days before being sold—the same pace as February 2018. According to the report, this is a notable turning-point in a 51-month stretch of declining time spent on the market. It noted that the share of homes selling faster than 30 days had declined for the first time since realtor.com began tracking this data in 2013.Giving a break down of home prices, the report noted that the February U.S. median listing price was up 7 percent year-over-year at $294,800.The report said that the continuing rise in national median home listing prices in the midst of a market slowdown is likely attributed to inventory growth in the upper tier of the nation’s most expensive markets. The number of homes priced $750,000 and above grew 11 percent over last year, while the number of homes $200,000 and under declined by 7 percent.“We still see fewer homes priced under $200,000 on the market, so entry-level buyers won’t see the same availability of options as high-end buyers,” Hale said.In February, the share of homes which had their prices cut increased by 2 percent compared to the previous year. This increase was driven by price reductions in the nation’s largest markets. Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agolast_img read more

  • Changes in Housing Policy

    first_img At the Mortgage Bankers Association 2019 Annual Convention & Expo, attendees heard from Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson and Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) Director Mark Calabria on the latest from their departments.Notably, Secretary Carson and Director Calabria discussed reform, with both noting that now is the time for reform.“Some see these positive economic trends as evidence that reform should wait for a crisis. I disagree,” said Calabria in his statement. “To quote President John F. Kennedy, ‘The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.’ Now is the time to reform our mortgage finance system because our economy and housing market are strong.”Calabria also discussed GSE reform, with a focus on preparing for an exit from conservatorship. One of the barriers in the way of putting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into private hands is building sufficient capital.“FHFA is also working on a capital rule that balances the imperative of protecting taxpayers, the mission of supporting liquidity, and the economic incentives of raising private capital,” Calabria said. “This may be the most important rule of my tenure. It is a prerequisite for the Enterprises to be able to raise additional private capital.”Coming off an interview with Squawk Box this morning when he revealed that the department will address FHA perimeters, which will impact how the False Claims Act is invoked, Carson spoke on the changes to the Act. HUD and the Department of Justice have just signed a Memorandum of Understanding between the two agencies concerning claims made under the False Claims Act. The agreement, he notes, “is intended to address concerns of uncertain and unanticipated False Claims Act liability for regulatory defects which has led many well-capitalized lenders to largely withdraw from FHA lending.”“Having been a brain surgeon for many years, I’ve seen a similar phenomenon in the doctor’s office,” Carson adds. “Sometimes a patient’s agonizing uncertainty over what he or she might be diagnosed with is more stressful than actually receiving a difficult, but clear and unambiguous, diagnosis.”“Or, to put it in financial terms, ‘The market hates uncertainty.’” Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
