Foto de Lucinda Laird.[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] El Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia episcopal dijo el16 de noviembre que los episcopales deben responder a los recientes ataques en París y Beirut con oración y con discernimiento.El Consejo Expresó su “pesar y tristeza por los que murieron, por los heridos y por aquellos a quienes los recientes actos de terrorismo en París y Beirut les han quebrantado la paz”. La declaración se produjo por medio de una resolución que el Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Defensa Social e Interconexiones del Consejo había redactado el día anterior.La acción del Consejo se produjo luego de que el obispo primado Michael B. Curry llamara el viernes a todos los episcopales a que oraran como respuesta a los actos terroristas de París. El mensaje de Curry, presentado en forma de vídeo, se puede encontrar en la página web de la Iglesia Episcopal y en su página de Facebook. En la mañana del 16 de noviembre, la declaración del Obispo Primado había recibido más de 370.000 visitas en Facebook.Y los miembros del Consejo Ejecutivo convinieron en hacer una colecta dedicada a los esfuerzos del obispo Pierre Whalon de la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa y de la Muy Rda. Lucinda Laird, deana de la catedral episcopal de la Santa Trinidad (conocida también como la Catedral Americana en París), para ayudar a personas que sufren de las secuelas de los ataques del 13 de noviembre en París. Clifton Daniel, obispo provisional de Pensilvania y miembro del Consejo, propuso la colecta y sus colegas estuvieron de acuerdo sin que mediara debate.La resolución decía que el Consejo recibió el reto que Whalon emitió al día siguientes de los ataques en París para “recordar que Dios muestra su amor por nosotros precisamente postergando la intervención divina que ansiamos”.“Al día siguiente de este odioso ataque, podemos desear que Dios descienda y barra a nuestros enemigos”, escribió Whalon, según apunta la resolución. “En lugar de eso, Cristo en la cruz, completamente impotente al final, nos muestra que es sólo el amor el que puede vencer el odio, el mal e incluso la muerte”.El Consejo dijo también que acepta “la exhortación” de Laird en que pide que oren “por las víctimas, los que murieron y los que están heridos; por sus familias; por los que han ayudado y están ayudando; por todos los que nos protegen; por la ciudad de París, y especialmente por nuestra comunidad de la catedral [y] por todos aquellos cuya ira, temor y odio los lleva a cometer tales actos…”.La resolución llama también a los episcopales “a volverse a Jesús y pedir orientación, sabiduría y valor mientras buscamos la senda de la gracia y la paz de Dios aun en la oscuridad del momento actual”.Y se sugiere el uso de “Una letanía de la paz en Tierra Santa” durante el Adviento de 2015 “como un acto de rememoración piadosa”.La reunión del Consejo, del 15 al 18 de noviembre tiene lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1)(a). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente y el vicepresidente de la Cámara de Diputados.

This villa, like a garden pavilion hung with a spectacular view of the sea, is part of a complex of houses located in Marina di Ragusa, the seafaring village of Ragusa, on a plot of land with beautiful views overlooking the Mediterranean and a stretch of coast in the direction of the island of Malta, distant about sixty miles off, and that in a bright day you can see clearly. The design of the villa derives from the influence exercised by the program of the Case Study Houses (CSH) implemented in the ’50s by John Entenza and the magazine he founded “Art & Architecture”. The house is more representative of the program is certainly the case study houses of Pierre Koenig’s Stahl House, masterfully photographed by Julius Shulman, became an icon of American lifestyle in the famous photo of the living room of the house with the background on the amazing night view of Los Angeles. The position of the batch of the project and the cultural similarities with that program became the essence of contemporary absolutely present after more than fifty years, has determined the main choices that affect the architecture of the house.The villa has an L-shaped ground plan shape, is set around a large swimming pool with sun terrace paved with planks of larch treated with a white primer. The continuity of the interior of the living room and is secured by a glass wall that continues to spread around the perimeter of the house facing the sea view. Compared to the garden the house is almost suspended, because a continuous and smooth edge, detached from the ground, surrounds the house, determine the line of coverage, the line connects with the base, is defined by vertical sidewalls.

The architecture is dry and clear, made so well by the economy of the materials used, steel and wood frame, glass for the side walls and cement floors for both internal and external.

The charm of the Stahl house determined the character of the villa, its planimetric shape, its design philosophy with the choice of using the exposed structure. The whole house is a tribute to its architect Pierre Koeing, perhaps the most brilliant architects with Craig Ellwood Americans who have given it a great contemporary American and world architecture.

Of those surveyed, the number of those who were “too discouraged to apply” across all types of credits increased to 7.1 percent from 5.7 percent in its last release in October 2016.In addition, application and rejection rates dipped in February. Applications fell from 42.3 percent to 39.9 percent, while the rejection rate fell from 9.9 percent to 8.5 percent. With mortgages, more people feel discouraged to even apply. In October, 34.2 percent of those surveyed felt like they would be rejected if they were to apply for a mortgage, compared to 41.4 percent in February. However, slightly more applicants are looking to apply for a mortgage, up to 8.8 percent over October’s 7.5 percent.The share of those who plan on refinancing their mortgage decreased to 8.4 percent, from October’s 12.2 percent. CoreLogic’s Housing Credit Index (HCI) confirms the trend.“Refinance volume will decline with higher mortgage rates, and lenders generally will respond by applying the flexibility in underwriting guidelines to make loans to harder-to-qualify borrowers,” said Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic, in a statement on the Index.The drop in confidence does not match the actual data, however. As consumers worry about rejections, the actual rejection rate increased only moderately from October to February, from 13 percent to 13.3 percent. Although less consumers plan on refinancing while more fear they will be rejected, the rejection rate for mortgage finances dropped from 23.6 percent to 10.8 percent. Additionally, CoreLogic’s HCI showed credits scores rising over the past year. The average credit score for homebuyers in Q4 2016 rose year-over-year from 733 to 737.View the Federal reserve Bank of New York’s report here.

Controls over Ocean Mesopelagic Interior Carbon Storage (COMICS): fieldwork, synthesis and modelling efforts

first_imgThe ocean’s biological carbon pump plays a central role in regulating atmospheric CO2 levels. In particular, the depth at which sinking organic carbon is broken down and respired in the mesopelagic zone is critical, with deeper remineralisation resulting in greater carbon storage. Until recently, however, a balanced budget of the supply and consumption of organic carbon in the mesopelagic had not been constructed in any region of the ocean, and the processes controlling organic carbon turnover are still poorly understood. Large-scale data syntheses suggest that a wide range of factors can influence remineralisation depth including upper-ocean ecological interactions, and interior dissolved oxygen concentration and temperature. However these analyses do not provide a mechanistic understanding of remineralisation, which increases the challenge of appropriately modelling the mesopelagic carbon dynamics. In light of this, the UK Natural Environment Research Council has funded a programme with this mechanistic understanding as its aim, drawing targeted fieldwork right through to implementation of a new parameterisation for mesopelagic remineralisation within an IPCC class global biogeochemical model. The Controls over Ocean Mesopelagic Interior Carbon Storage (COMICS) programme will deliver new insights into the processes of carbon cycling in the mesopelagic zone and how these influence ocean carbon storage. Here we outline the programme’s rationale, its goals, planned fieldwork and modelling activities, with the aim of stimulating international collaboration.last_img read more

US, ROK Navy Diving Experts Complete Salvage Exercise

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today US, ROK Navy Diving Experts Complete Salvage Exercise Share this article U.S. Navy and Republic of Korea (ROK) navy diving and salvage experts wrapped up two weeks of advanced training during Salvage Exercise (SALVEX) Korea 2015, March 14.Building on thirty years of partnership since SALVEX Korea began in 1985, approximately 180 U.S. and ROK navy personnel conducted a series of advanced combined salvage operations, both in-port and at-sea. Sailors assigned to Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit (MDSU) 1 embarked aboard the rescue and salvage ship USNS Salvor (T-ARS 52) sharpened skills with ROKN counterparts from Salvage Squadron (SALVORON) 55 embarked on their diving and salvage ship ROKS Pyongtaek (ATS 27).Training focused on combined diving operations, heavy lift procedures, and for the first time this year, a two-day salvage operations conference to discuss bilateral certification procedures and coordination. For the capstone event, Salvor and Pyongtaek teamed up in a real-world salvage operation to conduct bow-lifts of a 30-ton fishing vessel on an underwater training range near Chinhae, Korea. This highly complex evolution highlighted the continued importance of diving and salvage interoperability between the U.S. and ROK navies.SALVEX Korea 2015 is part of Exercise Foal Eagle — an umbrella of regularly-scheduled, annual exercises that are the culmination of many months of planning and based on realistic training scenarios. The naval portion of the Foal Eagle exercises take place in international waters around South Korea and features a full spectrum of maritime operations.[mappress mapid=”15406″]Image: US Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: Exercise View post tag: News by topic US, ROK Navy Diving Experts Complete Salvage Exercise Authorities View post tag: completecenter_img View post tag: ROK March 17, 2015 View post tag: asia View post tag: Navies View post tag: Salvage View post tag: US View post tag: Navylast_img read more
