By Trevor GrundyPosted Jan 14, 2014 Rector Washington, DC New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books [Religion News Service — Canterbury, England] Canterbury Cathedral, mother church of the 85 million-member worldwide Anglican Communion, will have its first girls’ choir perform since it was rebuilt nearly 1,000 years ago.On Jan. 25, worshippers will hear the voices of 16 girls between the ages of 12 and 16 at a historic Evensong service, which will include the music of English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams.Until now, only male voices have been heard at the cathedral’s services.Twenty years ago, Salisbury Cathedral was the first English cathedral to allow girls to sing in choirs at services. That set the ball rolling. There are now 765 girls in cathedral choirs across England, compared with 1,008 boys.Winchester Cathedral formed a girls’ choir in 1998, and Choirs Administrator Sue Armstrong said it is extremely popular.The cathedral is world-famous for its magnificent boys’ choir, which has made many recordings and toured most of Europe and parts of the Commonwealth.“I am delighted to hear that the mother church of the Anglican Communion is finally following suit,” said Armstrong.The formation of the girls’ choir at Canterbury comes as fewer boys show much interest in singing in church choirs.“What we need is a film that does for choral singing what ‘Billy Elliot’ did for ballet,” wrote Alan Titchmarsh, a former choirboy, in The Daily Telegraph.Some Church of England traditionalists insist choirs in cathedrals should be all male.The website of the Campaign for the Traditional Cathedral Choir insists it is not anti-girl but adds “ … cathedrals [that] use girls should take the opportunity of creating their own style. Their own tradition separate from the historic all-male.”The CTCC was formed in January 1996 in response to the decline of the robed, all-male choir and the declining number of boy choristers nationwide. Its aim is to champion the ancient tradition of the all-male choir.In medieval days, all-girl choirs flourished in convents. Italian composers Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina and Claudio Monteverdi wrote for them. But those choirs never sang with men at church services, and CTCC would like to keep it that way.“At Winchester Cathedral, girls and boys sing together at Easter and Christmas,” said Armstrong. “We haven’t received any complaints yet.” January 21, 2014 at 2:50 pm There are three girls in every man’s life: Liberty the most beautiful Girl in the world and the Blessings of God upon man’s Land and Law; Mary the Queen of Heaven, Mother of the Lord, Holy Virgin who leads all the world to Jesus by the Miracle of Christmas and its hope Christmas is everyday; and the girl one falls in love with and ultimately expresses and vows love for her before God: the bride. There is no more Romantic from God than His Son , the Son of God. For him all beauty was created even to him to cling and become then immortal devotion of all love forever.

The project is developed in an 1100 m2 plot, located at the locality of La Calera. It is inserted on a hill that looks to a proper valley of the neighborhood, with a northwest orientation and a grade of 15 meters between the front and back.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe neighborhood is characterised by its steep slope. That’s why the first idea was to look for a strategy that allowed a flat space to place the house. This involved an apparently intelligent operation, which consisted in digging out the mountain at the back of the lot, and with that replenishing the front, acquiring the valued flat plane to hold up the architecture. This solution, used in most of the cases, generated on one hand, an important damage to the natural topography because of the excavation, and in the other hand, backyards that looked to a “bitten” mountain.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteIn discordance with the damage that caused this intervention, we appeal to Le Corbusier’s idea of lifting the whole volume across the topography, letting the mountain run beneath, obtaining the flat necessary space, artificially, through the performance of two slabs, “roof and floor”, both supported by concrete columns.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe topography movements of the context, generates a variety of perspectives because of the strong articulation of it. An interesting example of this is when we see the house from the street front, where the slope that goes under the floor of the house begins to flatten as the perspective effects and it is seen as green vertical envelopes through the transparencies.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThis option generated a more integrated and respectful relation with the mountain, establishing a true dialogue between the location and the architectural volume. This is really important, because “the building’s insertion in the terrain” is one of the biggest concerns of the office. Save this picture!Floor PlanThe architectural volume is a suspended rectangle, that lets the area beneath be diligent as a garage, laundry and semi-covered space. The entrance was resolved on the left side, upon the noble plane, throughout a stair with a little semi-covered entrance hall, from where you accede to the dining room. The rooms were organized towards the front, using the best orientations and visuals. The kitchen, bathrooms and dresser were disposed at the back. Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteAll of the facades were proposed in concrete, with gathers that conform parasols. During the summer, when the west is rotated to the front facade, they generate a series of successive shadows that reduce the solar radiation, making workable the big superficies of glass. The rear face of the house, as the kitchen, is coated with sheet glass 5+5 with opaline pvb that continues through the bathrooms as a translucent enclosure.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe interior of the house is resolved with the idea of contraposition between the extremely rustic concrete and the perfectly white walls of the inside, that rise from a white floor of micro cement, which doesn’t reach the slab separated just enough to generate tension between the two materials, functionally resolved glazed sashes.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteAs well as the insertion is an important matter to resolve in the projects, after the teachings from the architect Cesar Naselli, the way in which the light enters to the interior of the buildings, sublimating the spaces with special climate and changing according to hours and seasons. This was achieved through a wood coating located on the staircase, on which reflects light staining inside a warm light volume.Save this picture!© Gonzalo ViramonteThe ten columns that conform the structure of the house are disposed conforming a weft of inverted beams, capable of sustaining little solid slabs, making the inferior part of the them look as a pure concrete volume. The beams disposition generated successive gaps that are filled with styrofoam, solving the inferior thermal insulation problem produced because of the “flying” floor in contact with the exterior.

Year: Photographs: Victor Marvillet, Yu XiaSave this picture!© Victor Marvillet, Yu XiaText description provided by the architects. This project is located in Pudong New District on the east side of Shanghai’s Huangpu River. The neighborhood, Zhangjiang High-Technology Park, is home to some of China’s largest IT companies, most dynamic start-ups, and several research facilities. Although this industry has earned the area the title of ‘China’s Silicon Valley’, the streets empty at the end of every work day. This was the context for the project: what began as the defunct Long Dong Business Hotel, originally built in an older style as part of a larger complex, would become a space to bridge the gap between office life and leisure.Save this picture!© Victor Marvillet, Yu XiaWith no options for recreation, MASS DESIGN set out to create community in an area where there was none. By exploring the interplay between connection and permeability, MASS DESIGN reprogrammed the former hotel to renegotiate the boundaries of public and private space, mimicking the layers of a traditional urban environment. Retail and F&B occupy the ground floor and open plan offices the second, followed by 24 SOHO units on the three upper floors and 60 apartment units on the top three floors. Common spaces enhance interaction and sense of community, including a gym, meeting rooms, game room, reading room, video room, and shared kitchen and dining with a rooftop terrace for events like barbecues or other social gatherings.Save this picture!FacadeSave this picture!© Victor Marvillet, Yu XiaThe building’s previous incarnation as a hotel had sorely lacked natural light. Its small and cramped atrium and long, narrow corridors made for dark and uninviting space. Working within the existing constraints of form and construction, MASS DESIGN sought to achieve a relationship between inhabitant and building, function and context. To allow in more natural light, the structure was altered to create a larger central atrium. MASS DESIGN programmed openings as large as possible, cleaned the building of all excess, and created additional spaces to gather and interact. Save this picture!© Victor Marvillet, Yu XiaSave this picture!SOHOSave this picture!© Victor Marvillet, Yu XiaThe same desire for interplay between public and private spaces inspires design decisions for the SOHO and apartment units. Spaces intended for communal use such as the living room, dining room and SOHO working spaces are oriented towards the atrium. Through the translucent glass brick used in the walls, those outside are able to glimpse the scenes of life lived out within.Moreover, units are organized around a centrally-placed wooden box with sliding doors. The effect are social spaces filled with as much natural light as possible. The wooden box is also elevated 400 mm above the floor of the apartment in order to create different spatial atmospheres, enhance division between semi-private and private spaces, and create additional storage space.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Trade War Shifting Feed Demand Amid Ethanol Production Cuts SHARE Facebook Twitter The trade war is causing U.S. ethanol production to decline, thus raising the costs of distillers dried grains, a byproduct of the ethanol process that is used for animal feed. Reuters reports cuts to ethanol production are tightening supplies of DDGs and raising prices paid by livestock farmers. Many are turning to other feeds including soybean meal, the price of which eased as China halted imports of American soybeans.The shift in distillers’ grain demand is causing further harm to the ethanol industry, which is facing the lowest ethanol prices in over a decade. Distillers’ grains have previously helped the struggling sector by providing solid demand for the byproduct, but that support is eroding as production is being limited. Ethanol makers were forced to limit production rates over the last year due to the low price, in an effort to deal with negative profit margins. The shift to soybean meal from DDGs is largely seen in the hog sector. Meanwhile, China, the top importer of U.S. DDGs, stopped buying the product last year due to the trade war.Source: NAFB News Service By NAFB News Service – Jan 21, 2019 SHARE Facebook Twitter Trade War Shifting Feed Demand Amid Ethanol Production Cuts Previous articleChina, U.S. Swine Industries Gather to Address African Swine FeverNext articleLegal Advice for Tough Financial Times NAFB News Service

The report, released Friday, showed total nonfarm jobs up by 209,000 last month. Overall, little changed in July, compared to the prior few months.Most employment increases occurred in the food and beverage sector, professional and business services, and health care. Employment in food services and drinking places rose by 53,000 in July. Professional and business services added 49,000 jobs, and health care employment increased by 39,000, with most job gains occurring in ambulatory health care services.Average hourly earnings rose by 9 cents to $26.36 in July. That brings average hourly earnings year-to-date up 65 cents, or 2.5 percent. Average hourly earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 6 cents to $22.10.Revised total nonfarm payroll employment for May was down from 152,000 to 145,000, and the change for June was revised up from 222,000 to 231,000. With these revisions, employment gains in May and June combined were 2,000 more than previously reported. Over the past three months, job gains have averaged 195,000 per month.The national unemployment rate remained a steady 4.3 percent. That’s about 7 million unemployed Americans, and those numbers have remained largely the same since spring. Black and Hispanic adults remained the largest unemployed populations in July, with unemployment rates of 7.4 percent and 5.1 percent, respectively.Among the unemployed, the number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) remained steady at 1.8 million in July. Long-term unemployed and accounted for 26 percent of the unemployment numbers last month.Despite the business-as-usual nature of the July jobs report, Doug Duncan, chief economist at Fannie Mae, said the report offered more evidence of a strong labor market.“Job gains were solid and broad-based, and a slight upward revision put year-to-date average monthly hiring at a healthy 184,000,” Duncan said. “The downtick in the unemployment rate amid a rise in the labor force participation rate sweetened the report. One could nitpick the lack of a pickup in year-over-year wage gains, which have stayed within a narrow range of 2.5 percent to 2.8 percent this year.”Duncan pointed out, however, that in the context of decelerating headline and core inflation witnessed this year, the steady annual wage increase “isn’t too shabby.“All in all, today’s report is consistent with gradual monetary normalization,” he said. “We continue to expect September balance-sheet tapering and a December rate hike.” Previous: All’s Not Fair With Gender Next: Wells Fargo Puts VA Refi Problems Behind it Subscribe

The bench also ordered the SSP, Pyagraj, the present SHO of the concerned police station and the erstwhile SHO, who is now under suspension, to appear before the Court on Wednesday at 10 AM.”Today, a personal affidavit has also been filed by Smt. Kunti, mother of the girl (victim), wherein she has stated that the girl in question (victim) has been detained in the police station by the police authorities since 16.10.2020. It is further stated that the police is not permitting the family members of the petitioner to meet the girl (victim)”, noted the division bench on Tuesday.Even as the Additional Advocate General sought 24 hours’ time to reply, the bench directed the putting of the matter as a fresh case on Wednesday at 10 AM, ordering the police to produce the girl by 21.10.2020 before itself, besides demanding the attendance of the aforesaid police authorities.”The present petition highlights the laxity shown by the officers in triggering the criminal justice system”, the bench had noted on October 15 in context of the petitioner-victim having been made to run from pillar to post to get registered the FIR for gang-rape.In its order dated October 15, the bench had recorded that the present petitioner alleged that on 11.7.2020 she was raped by four persons and she tried to lodge the First Information Report but the FIR was not lodged. On 22.7.2020, the petitioner claims to have submitted an application before the Senior Superintendent of Police, Prayagraj highlighting that despite her best efforts, the FIR was not being registered. Once again the petitioner claims to have filed an application on 23.7.2020 informing the SSP that despite best efforts the FIR was not being lodged. Ultimately, the petitioner had approached the High Court by filing an application on 30.7.2020.This Court, vide order dated 12.10.2020, had called for instructions from the Standing Counsel. The Standing Counsel has produced the instructions dated 14.10.2020 wherein it has been admitted that a complaint dated 23.7.2020 was indeed forwarded by the petitioner before the SSP. It was further stated in the instructions that the said report was forwarded by the SSP to the concerned Police Station for further action.In pursuance of the said directions, an FIR claims to have been registered on 13.10.2020 under sections 376-D, 392, 328, 504, 506 IPC. It was also brought on record that the statement of the petitioner has been recorded under section 161 Cr.P.C. on 14.10.2020 and the statement under section 164 Cr.P.C. shall be recorded soon. The medico legal examination report of sexual violence was furnished, and the medical examination of the prosecutrix was said to have been done on 14.10.2020.”The sequence of the evidence, as recorded above, on the basis of instructions, highlights the sheer callousness of the police authorities in lodging the FIR after about three months of the alleged incident that too only after this Court had intervened and had called for instructions”, the bench had stated, reiterating that it is well settled that the information disclosing a cognizable offence should be initiated with all expedition as the same is necessary to bring the prosecution to its logical conclusion fairly. “Whereas, in the present case, laxity, which has been done at the behest of the police authorities, has not been explained at all. There is no explanation as to why three months was taken for lodging the FIR and for proceeding in accordance with the complaint made by the petitioner. There is nothing on record as to what action was taken by the Senior Superintendent of Police except merely forwarding the application of the petitioner before the Station House Officer, Police Station Phoolpur, District Prayagraj”, the bench had reprimanded.On a prima facie consideration, the Court was of the view that on account of the laxity of the police officials, the prosecution may be seriously affected. The bench had stated that the action taken in the form of lodging of the FIR on 13.10.2020 and the subsequent medico legal examination of the petitioner on 14.10.2020, are “prima facie a hogwash”.”Considering the facts, which prima facie disclose the laxity on the part of the police authorities, this Court is of the view that the matter needs to be taken seriously. Needless to add that time and again the courts have emphasized lodging of the FIR and conducting the medico legal examination with all expedition”, the bench had expressed.Noting that the respondent authorities, prima facie, have failed to take action as was expected of them, the Court had declared that the liability for the lapses which are prima facie evident, should be fixed, and as such the SSP and the SHO were directed to appear personally before the Court on Tuesday on which date the Court proposed to pass further orders “keeping in view the glaring facts, which have come to the knowledge of the Court”.Click Here to Download Order[Read Order]Next Story
