Prudential has written to affected customers confirming it will pay back the amount needed to return them to the position had the credit been paid.Most will receive less than £100, with about 9,000 to receive up to £1,000 and 100 to get £2,000 or more.The oversight was exposed in an internal audit. Tax deducted from investment income earned by the funds should have been recovered against Prudential Assurance’s tax liability. “We found there was some inconsistency in the way these tax ‘credits’ were paid,” the Pru said. “For some of our legacy Scottish Amicable funds…the tax refund was not paid, whereas for our other funds it was.”It altered the treatment of the credits in June 2008 to price all funds equally. This payback corrects the value of funds that were undervalued when transferred, switched or partially surrendered by customers between June 2004 and December 2008.

Su producto ayuda a alimentar a las 30 mujeres que duermen en el albergue Casa Noel [Noel House], que funciona en el salón parroquial de la catedral de domingo a jueves.La quietud del huerto es, para White, un don para las personas que viven en ciudades. “Estamos perdiendo espacios donde podamos relacionarnos con el mundo natural y sus ciclos”, afirmó ella.“La agricultura comunitaria es sencillamente un modo en que nosotros como congregación —pueblo de fe— podemos reunirnos para ser los mayordomos de la creación a que estamos llamados”, dijo el Muy Rdo. Steven L. Thomason, que ha sido rector y deán de la catedral por casi cuatro años. No sólo el huerto casero y un incipiente huerto urbano ayudan a sostener los ministerios de la catedral, sino que también son ejemplos del compromiso de la catedral con la ecojusticia y la sostenibilidad, añadió.“Dios es nuestra motivación para decir: ‘Vio Dios cuanto había hecho y todo estaba muy bien’ y lejos de nosotros decir otra cosa y [no] tomar en serio esa afirmación: que en la bondad de la creación nos juntamos como parte de esa creación para gloria de Dios y para beneficio de aquellos a los que servimos”, dijo.White y el resto de los miembros de San Marcos no son los únicos en encontrar a Dios y la misión en un huerto de iglesia. Desde Ishpeming en Michigan a El Cajón en California, de Snohomish en el estado de Washington a Oyster Bay en Nueva York, un creciente número de episcopales está regresando a la tierra a alimentar su ministerio y a sus comunidades. Hay huertos diminutos y algunos tan grandes que se transforman en verdaderas granjas. Hay huertos hidropónicos y sofisticados sistemas de compostación.Un grupo de Girl Scouts muestran el fruto de su cosecha en la Granja del Banco de Alimentos [Food Bank Farm] de Snohomish Valley en el estado de Washington. La granja, un ministerio de la iglesia episcopal de la Santa Cruz en Redmond, produjo 62.000 kilogramos de calabacines de invierno el año pasado para un banco de alimentos de la zona. Foto de Food Bank Farm.Hay proyectos a gran escala tales como Semillas de Esperanza y la Mesa Abundante, ambos  ministerios de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles. Y hay esfuerzos más pequeños; por ejemplo, unos pocos canteros en una franja de césped a lo largo de un terreno de estacionamiento o feligreses que cuidan plantas que comienzan a mediados del invierno y las donan a un banco de alimentos que se las dan a clientes con instrucciones respecto a cómo empezar un huerto en tiestos.“Todo el mundo puede hacer algo … No estamos resolviendo la crisis alimentaria del mundo en modo alguno, pero uno tiene que contribuir con su grano de arena”, según dijo Brian Sellers-Petersen, asesor principal del presidente de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo y defensor de la agricultura de iglesia y comunidad.Cuando una iglesia comienza un huerto en su terreno, “añade una clase a su escuela dominical”, afirmó Sellers-Petersen. “Todo lo que uno necesita saber acerca de Dios y el cristianismo lo puede aprender en un huerto”. Hay lecciones de mayordomía, de creación, de cuidado, de muerte y de resurrección.“Siempre me asombro al plantar una semilla en la tierra, algo que al parecer está muerto y que se convierte en algo enorme”, recalcó.La horticultura “nos pone en solidaridad con personas de todo el mundo que dependen de los huertos caseros” de una manera que no les pasa a los estadounidenses, dijo. “Nos ayuda a entender los sistemas de alimentos en el ámbito global si tenemos la oportunidad”.El Proyecto de Horticultura Vida Abundante de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo —un programa infantil interactivo, basado en la Escritura, para parroquias, maestros, familias y otras personas, que se creó para los que buscan compartir el ministerio y la obra de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo con estudiantes de primaria— es un buen instrumento para enseñar también esas lecciones más amplias, dijo Sellers-Petersen.Además, las iglesias, insiste él, pueden ayudar a personas que viven en “desiertos alimentarios” al encontrar maneras de garantizarles “el tener acceso a alimentos frescos que no pueden darse el lujo de comprar en Whole Foods o que sencillamente no tienen el tiempo o los recursos para tomar el autobús e ir a buscar alimentos a una tienda de víveres porque no hay ninguna en su barrio”.El Mapa de Recursos de la Iglesia Episcopal muestra189 congregaciones, escuelas y organizaciones que incluyen “huertos comunitarios”  en sus programas. Esa lista en efecto puede ser sólo una muestra de las entidades episcopales que tienen huertos en sus propiedades y en sus vidas.El Rdo. Kirk T. Berlenbach, rector y apicultor de la iglesia episcopal de San Timoteo [St. Timothy’s], en la sección Roxbourgh de Filadelfia, espera que gotee la miel de un panal. Foto de Apicultores Episcopales [Episcopal Beekeepers] vía Facebook.Sellers-Petersen sospecha que hay muchísimos huertos de iglesias que no están inscritos en ninguna parte. Cuando él comenzó a llevar cuenta de esos proyectos, creó una lista a partir de información oral y conciencia personal, “un montón de retazos de papel en ni escritorio y de tarjetas de presentación comerciales”.Una concentración de proyectos agrícolas de comunidades religiosas está aumentando en el área metropolitana de Seattle de la Diócesis de Olympia donde vive Sellers-Petersen. La catedral de San Marcos, con dos huertos y 20.000 abejas que recientemente se han hospedado en el techo de la catedral (Sellers-Petersen, el incipiente apicultor de la catedral, dice que las abejas realizan “diminutos milagros” al fabricar la miel) no es más que un ejemplo.En las próximas semanas, Episcopal News Service reseñará algunos de los empeños agrícolas de comunidades religiosas de la zona de Seattle.Lea más al respecto* Visite la página de Facebook de la Red Episcopal de Fe, Alimento y Cultivo [Episcopal Faith, Food and Farm Network] aquí para más ejemplos de congregaciones y otras organizaciones episcopales que participan de proyectos agrícolas en comunidades eclesiales.* La Faith Farm & Food Network, parte del Centro Beecken de la Escuela de Teología de la Universidad del Sur, se creó en parte con ayuda de Sellers-Petersen para reunir a episcopales que plantan y comparten alimentos.* Las personas interesadas en la apicultura pueden encontrar a otras con intereses semejantes en la página de Facebook de Apicultores Episcopales [Episcopal Beekeepers Facebook page]* Churchwork es un blog dedicado a “datos y estrategias de la Iglesia, formación cristiana y cuidado de la creación con énfasis en la fe y el alimento”.

Boston salutes Black August

first_imgMiya X. USW 8751 leader Georgia Scott and Monica Moorehead. The Boston Branch of Workers World Party held “A Dialogue with Monica Moorehead, Workers World Party 2016 Presidential Candidate,” on Aug. 20 to commemorate Black August. This is a month-long salute to the lives of freedom fighters who left a lasting legacy in the name of Black Liberation, radical resistance and mass consciousness. Miya X, a WWP leader in Boston, moderated the discussion.Black August originated in honor of the fallen warriors who valiantly fought to liberate Black Panther leader George Jackson on Aug. 7, 1970, from the U.S. penal system. Jonathan Jackson, George’s 17-year-old brother, was one of the martyrs. George Jackson, author of “Soledad Brother” and “Blood in My Eye” and a leader of the Black Panther Party, was assassinated on Aug. 21, 1971, by San Quentin prison guards.The discussion included the ongoing struggle for Black Liberation today represented by the Black Lives Matter uprising.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Board to consider contract with Texas Tech

first_img Pinterest WhatsApp By admin – April 25, 2018 WhatsApp Board to consider contract with Texas Tech Local NewsGovernment Facebook Texas Tech, ECISD logos The Ector County Independent School District Board of Trustees will have a special meeting with its attorneys at 6 p.m. Thursday to talk about a proposed contract with the Texas Tech University College of Education to make Ector Middle School into an in-district charter school.The meeting, which will be largely closed, is scheduled for 6 p.m. in the board room of the administration building, 802 N. Sam Houston Ave. Mike Atkins, the attorney for the school district, said he and Tatiana Dennis, also with his firm, will be on hand.Texas Tech presented its plans at a parent meeting earlier this month at Ector.ECISD has eight campuses on improvement required status under state accountability standards. Ector, Noel and Zavala elementary schools are in their fifth year. If the campuses don’t come off the list, they will face closure or the Texas Education Commissioner will appoint a board of managers over the whole district.Ector has about 1,500 students. If the board approves the plan it would stay action by the Texas Education Agency and provide more state funding per student.The district asked for applications from colleges and universities to work with ECISD and implement innovative ideas, Superintendent Tom Crowe has said.At the parent meeting, Robert Bleisch, director of Safety Net East Lubbock Promise Neighborhood, said conditions for success will include offering tutoring, targeted teacher training, providing tools, equipment and materials to teachers, administrative support and neutralizing barriers. Barriers include irregular student attendance, poor behavior and lack of academic effort, Bleisch said.Bleisch said the focus will be on the whole child, an innovative school schedule and rigorous academics. Reading also will be a focus because if a child doesn’t read, they won’t be going to college, Bleisch said.Electives will include music, art, dance, theater, computers and athletics. Bleisch added that there also will be a focus on college and career readiness.Texas Tech also will monitor attendance, behavior, homework and tests.In an interview last week, Crowe said Bleisch enacted similar plans in California. He added that other districts wanted certain aspects of the plan, but ECISD said, “bring it on.”Crowe said Texas Tech wants to keep most of the teachers and the principal, Charles Quintela, because Quintela’s philosophy fits right in. He added that Tech wants to train personnel at the school not to bend or give.“You still love them and care about them, but you don’t bend,” Crowe said.In education, Crowe said people too often expect immediate results.“Any change worth the while takes three to five years before it just becomes the way we do business,” he said.He said who will be working for whom is still being worked on, but the district — and Tech — want to make sure teachers still qualify for the Teacher Retirement System.“It’s not us against them. It’s a how do we make it work for the teachers and we’ve talked about that. They want to make it work for the teachers,” Crowe said.More Informationcenter_img Twitter Twitter Pinterest ECISD meeting agenda.

Man charged with tampering with witness

first_img Man charged with tampering with witness CrimeFelony Arrests Twitter A 43-year-old man was arrested after he reportedly attempted to coerce witnesses to change their statements made to detectives at the Odessa Police Department.James Benjamin Carter was charged with tampering with a witness, a third-degree felony.The Odessa Police Department received a call at 7:47 p.m. April 14 from a victim needing to report a violation of a protective order, an OPD probable cause affidavit stated.The victim was reportedly identified as Carter who stated that his ex-wife, identified as Madeline Carmen Lopez, was violating an emergency protective order by making alarming and embarrassing statements about his person to several known acquaintances.Detectives made contact with Carter and attempted to gather evidence of the claims, the affidavit stated. Carter stated that a local business received a phone call from Lopez stating that he is a drug user and is known to sleep with prostitutes. Carter also stated that Lopez called his boss saying the same embarrassing statement, however, he refused to provide any of his boss’s information.After making contact with the local businesses, detectives reportedly spoke with four witnesses who all confirmed that Lopez and Carter are regulars and that Lopez never called up to the center to make any statements.One witness stated she spoke to Lopez personally and that Lopez arrived to the business and “vented” that she and Carter were no longer together but never made any alarming or embarrassing statements about Carter, the affidavit stated.When Carter was reportedly advised that there was no evidence to validate his claims and that all witnesses from the business stated Lopez never made any comments, Carter became upset and demanded for Lopez to be arrested without any evidence.On April 26, detectives received a phone call from the manager of the business stating that Carter called the business and attempted to coerce her and her employees into changing their statements to the investigator by saying that they all lied, the affidavit stated. Carter knowingly tampered with a witness by coercing the witness to testify falsely.Carter was arrested and booked into the Ector County Law Enforcement Center on April 27, jail records show. He has one bond totaling $15,000 and was still in custody as of Wednesday afternoon.

Jacob Blake appears in court from hospital bed for domestic abuse charges

first_imgMarilyn Nieves/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(KENOSHA, Wisc.) — Jacob Blake, the Wisconsin man who was shot seven times in the back by a Kenosha police officer, appeared in court Friday for domestic abuse charges.Blake, 29, appeared via Zoom from his hospital bed, as he recovers from the Aug. 23 shooting that left him paralyzed from the waist down and sparked protests and civil unrest in the city.In July, Blake was charged with third-degree sexual assault, a felony, as well as criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors, stemming from an alleged assault in May. The felony carries a maximum 10-year prison term.His attorney, Patrick Cafferty, entered a plea of not guilty for all three charges on Friday.Blake, wearing a shirt and tie, spoke when he agreed to the terms of his $10,000 bail, including that he could only leave Wisconsin to seek medical treatment. He also cannot have violent contact with the alleged victim or possess any weapons, Commissioner Loren Keating said.Blake waived his rights to a preliminary hearing. Probable cause was found, Keating said, and a pretrial conference was scheduled for Oct. 21 and jury selection for Nov. 9.Due to an outstanding warrant stemming from the domestic abuse charges at the time of the police-involved shooting, Blake was previously handcuffed to his hospital bed. That warrant has since been vacated.Blake, who is out of the intensive care unit, spoke with former Vice President Joe Biden from his hospital bed over the phone on Thursday, while the Democratic presidential nominee was in Kenosha to meet with Blake’s family and community leaders.Several competing narratives have emerged in the wake of the shooting. The Kenosha Professional Police Association claims Blake was armed with a knife and “forcefully fought” with the officers who tried to subdue him. But those closest to Blake, including his parents, say he is a loving and devoted father of three who did not deserve what happened to him.ABC News’ Joshua Hoyos contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
