VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Tampa, FL Rector Pittsburgh, PA Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Portrait of Robert Moncrief by Lydia Bailey[Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry] In June 2013, the Rev. Lydia Bailey was ordained to the Sacred Order of Deacons at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Cleveland, Ohio. However, Bailey’s ministry began long before then. In 2007, she became the volunteer coordinator at the 2100 Lakeside Men’s Shelter, operated by Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry. The shelter is the largest shelter in Ohio, serving 4,000 men who are homeless each year. Bailey organizes volunteers by the thousands – to be precise, 1,773 individual volunteers last year alone. Bailey oversees these people as they not only serve meals, but operate programs including job coaching, poetry, gardening, Bible study and legal clinic.In the midst of it all, Bailey manages to moonlight as a photographer. In 2010, her photos of the residents culminated in a full-blown art exhibit complemented by the men’s personal stories in their own words called “Portraits of Homelessness.”Portrait of Eric Asazawa by Lydia BaileyThe ministry’s exhibit is aimed at not only breaking stereotypes of those who are homeless, but moving the public toward a more committed stance on issues of homelessness. The collection of 45 portraits, which has shown in 35 venues around Northeast Ohio, conveys individuals with concerns and hopes; their gifts and personalities as well as the confusing, fearful and damaging elements of homelessness.According to Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry President and CEO Andrew Genszler, “We live in a moment of national apathy and cynicism and this public attitude makes Lydia’s ability to engage others and build meaningful relationships all the more remarkable. Her ministry is an asset to LMM and a beautiful bright space in our community.”Portrait of Charles Young by Lydia BaileyBailey’s powerful ministry has inspired others in many ways. Portraits of Homelessness, while on display at Cleveland’s Temple Tifereth, was a subject of discussion among the young adult classes. The youth commented that the shelter residents they saw portrayed in the exhibit couldn’t be homeless; they looked too “alive,” “vital,” or “happy.” Thereafter, the students collected their babysitting money and donated it to the shelter.Portrait of Raymel Johnson by Lydia Bailey“I think a lot of people have been struck by the humanity of people here,” said Bailey. “Portraits of Homelessness is about growing awareness, to see the individuals involved in homelessness, beyond the stereotypes. And while there is nothing quite so terrible as homelessness, these portraits can be empowering to those who feel largely invisible; who feel lost living in a shelter and on the street. Stories can be empowering, giving voice to the deepest hopes and concerns of individuals.”According to Michael Sering, Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry’s vice president, housing and shelter, “In these portraits of homelessness we can see a powerful microcosm of humanity and society – strength and frailty, brokenness and resilience, hope and sorrow, and indeed potential.”Funding for Portraits of Homelessness was provided by The Dominion Foundation and Community West Foundation.— Megan Crow Brauer is associate vice president for development and communications at Lutheran Metropolitan Ministry Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Featured Jobs & Calls Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector Smithfield, NC Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Collierville, TN Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Submit an Event Listing Rector Shreveport, LA An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Albany, NY Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit a Job Listing Submit a Press Release Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Associate Rector Columbus, GA This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Press Release Service Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Bath, NC Episcopal deacon’s ministry, photography serves Cleveland’s homeless Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Featured Events Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Director of Music Morristown, NJlast_img read more

Overall, in the past year the survey found: Advertisement “This research paints a picture of a nation whose relationship to charity and giving has been transformed and strengthened by the pandemic. Lizi Zipser, director of global strategy and insights at Blue State commented:  About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. The pandemic has prompted younger audiences to both give more as well as for the first time, according to research by global agency Blue State, while overall people are keen to return to charity shops, volunteering, and raising money for good causes post-lockdown. Melanie May | 10 May 2021 | News Uncategorised 43% have made a charity shop purchase 42% have signed a petition 30% have bought a pin, badge or other charity merchandise 39% have bought fair trade products from the supermarket This was particularly the case among younger audiences, with over 20% of 18-24 year olds starting or increasing giving to their local communities, as well as to national causes, and nearly 15% to help people in developing countries. Similarly, amongst 25-34 year olds and 35-44 year olds, over 20% also started or increased giving to their local communities, while just under this among 25-34 year olds did the same with national causes. Looking forwards, the study also found that 93% of those surveyed intend to return to charity shops, 60% see themselves volunteering now or in the future, and 50% raising money by selling something at an event, such as baking cakes. Four out of five of those who have previously given face-to-face say they see themselves doing so again. The full report can be found here. “Young people – a group perceived as not engaged with giving – is now growing fast. And people are both willing and eager to mobilise and take part in demonstrations and protests at a rate we have never seen before. 45% have given a one-off donation online More people are also open to taking part in protests or demonstrations. While in 2019, around 6% of people had taken part in a protest in the past year, this study showed that 32% of people see themselves attending a protest or public demonstration now or in the future.  860 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis “Charities across the UK should take note, and continue using digital channels to supplement the drop in face-to-face interactions. Giving has grown during the pandemic, and we are becoming a more generous nation. We need to continue inspiring those wishing to create impact in the world to donate, mobilise and continue this generosity as we ease out of this crisis. “There’s no business-as-usual fundraising, so charities need to evolve to adapt as we move out of the pandemic.” In terms of causes donated to over the past year, 18% started giving or increased their donations to their local communities, while 16% started or increased their giving to national causes, and 7% did so to help people in developing countries. last_img read more

Open judicial season on Moroccan journalists

first_img Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists April 5, 2021 Open judicial season on Moroccan journalists News A well-known human rights and press freedom defender, Monjib was jailed on 20 December 2020 and was released on 23 March after 20 days on hunger strike in protest against the iniquity of this sentence, including the fact that the trial was held in his absence and his lawyers were not even notified that it was taking place, let alone invited to attend. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns what it regards as a dangerous manipulation of the judicial system in Morocco, where three distinct criminal cases are to be heard against four prominent journalists in the space of less than ten days. News RSF_en The four journalists – Omar Radi, Imad Stitou, Maati Monjib and Suleiman Raissouni – are all critics of the government who have been targeted by the authorities for years. They are facing sentences of up to ten years in prison on sex charges or for allegedly threatening state security.

This ten-day offensive comes just before the start of the month of Ramadan, when a judicial truce is usually observed. Morocco is ranked 133rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. News to go further “These judicial cases bear all the hallmarks of reprisals against journalists and media outlets that are disliked by the authorities,” said Souhaieb Khayat, the head of RSF’s North Africa desk, voicing alarm at this “dangerous manipulation of the Moroccan justice system.” Help by sharing this information April 15, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say The judicial authorities are also due to decide in the next few days whether to prosecute him on another patently spurious charge, one of money-laundering, the charge on which he was arrested in December. RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance The editor of the daily newspaper Akhbar Al Yaoum, Suleiman Raissouni was due to go on trial in Casablanca on 30 March, but the start of his trial has been postponed until 15 April. He is facing a possible ten-year jail sentence under article 485 of the penal code on a charge of “Indecent assault with violence and kidnapping” that a young activist in the LGBTQ community brought against him. Detained provisionally since 22 May 2020. Raissouni insists that he is innocent and that the case is a political reprisal for his articles, which are often very critical of the monarchy and the security services. He latest request for a provisional release, filed on 30 March, was refused. Omar Radi, an investigative reporter and human right defender, and Imad Stitou, a freelancer who specialises in covering politics, will face up to ten years in prison when they appear in court on 6 April. The target of constant judicial harassment for years because of his coverage of sensitive issues, Radi has been held since 29 July 2020 on charges of “indecent assault with violence” and raping a young women journalist, with whom he has always said the relationship was consensual. last_img read more

Dyspraxia group for Limerick

At that stage, it may have gone too far without positive occupational and speech therapy intervention,” he explained.“Along with a number of other concerned parents, and in association with the Dyspraxia Association of Ireland, I am attempting to resurrect The Limerick Dyspraxia Group and form a new committee. This will provide a suitable forum and platform for parents to meet and discuss various issues, ideas, problems they encounter and crucially, to tell their life experience dealing with a child who has Dyspraxia/DCD”.The father said that too often, children with Dyspraxia are labelled ‘clumsy’ or ‘slow’ and not enough understanding and expertise is directed at an early intervention stage to help the child emotionally, physically and intellectually.“Failure to invest heavily in resources early in the child’s social, emotional and schooling development leads to social exclusion, higher risk of bullying and poor academic performance. These problems are then compounded throughout the child’s life often into their teenage years and subsequent adulthood., ” he told the Limerick Post.DCD is a condition which relates to children who have difficulty with balance, and physical activity, usually speech  and language, emotional development, sensory stimulation issues, social integration and display extreme tantrums caused by tremendous emotional frustration.“Remember Dyspraxia/DCD children usually know the answer to questions posed and/or possess emotions they are unable to adequately express either verbally or emotionally which is then the root cause of their frustration.“Generally, children with DCD are incredibly bright and articulate,”the father explained.The next meeting of the Limerick association will be on Tuesday February 17 from 7.30 to 9pm in Christ Church, Central Buildings, O’Connell Street, near the White House Pub.

The ‘Three Cs’ of a Balanced Mortgage Servicing Industry

first_imgHow does technology make things easier when a borrower is approaching default? Consumers can apply for loss mitigation online, and they can check the status of their loss mitigation online via a mobile app. Intuitively, that feels like that should make it easier. However, we are a very data-driven organization, and right now, we don’t have the data to prove that intuition as yet. But intuitively, if I’m making it easier, I’m making the conversation easier for the consumer. They can check the status whenever they want. How do you make the process more frictionless? We are making it easier for the consumer to interact with us to pay their mortgage. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Print Features  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily “Servicing is effectively what I call a ‘needle in a haystack’ problem. If you service 100,000 loans, you know that most of your risk lies in the 20 or 50 loans where something wrong may have happened. Most servicers are running at a level of quality where 99% of the loans are working just fine. It is the last 1% that causes issues.” How can servicers control and mitigate costs? Servicing is effectively the manufacturing part of the business, so there are lessons that can be taken away from the manufacturing business. We can look at the manufacturers who’ve been doing it for over 100 years and ask, “What lessons can be learned?” There are three key things that every servicer should be thinking about. One is the whole category of digital. A second is what I call “lean manufacturing.” How can we bring lean manufacturing process philosophy into servicing? Finally, servicers need to look at the global delivery model. Every manufacturer in every other industry uses a global delivery model. Every service company has to use the global delivery model.One of the things that we feel particularly proud of at BSI is our view that servicing is effectively what I call a “needle in a haystack” problem. If you service 100,000 loans, you know that most of your risk lies in the 20 or 50 loans where something wrong may have happened. Most servicers are running at a level of quality where 99% of the loans are working just fine. It is the last 1% that causes issues. What we have spent a lot of time, effort, and money on is in using technology to identify those high-risk assets and then put corrective measures in place. If somebody or some process made a mistake on the loan, if we look at the data on the loan, we should be able to identify a large number of exceptions, whether that is in the escrow process, the loan-boarding process, or the default process—everywhere in the process. It’s just about making the best use of the data you have. What are the key challenges facing lenders and servicers, and how do you see them changing this year? As a servicer, you have the “Three Cs.” There is the customer experience, there is compliance, and there is cost. It was probably true 30 years ago, and it’ll be true 30 years from now as well. Servicers have to look at all of those things. From there, then you get more into questions such as, “What is the economy doing, and what does that do to us as servicers?” Similar things can be said about the lending segment. What are the things that impact the performance of the portfolio? Rates have a huge impact. Natural disasters have a huge impact. Credit quality has a huge impact. Those are three things that jump up to the top of my mind. Depending on where we are in the economic cycle, what may be happening to the economy, those three things—or natural disasters, we can’t forecast those.

You always need to eat healthy and do exercise. A doctor may say, when somebody is really sick, “There’s an emergency reason to do it.” But for the long-term health of the person, they always have to eat healthy and exercise. I would argue that the same thing applies to innovation within companies. We always need to be innovating. Instead, it becomes a question of, in what area should they focus their efforts? As a company, we’ve said, the customer experience is becoming much more digital and mobile. We’ve made the determination as a company that we need to focus on the customer experience, and so we over-invested in technology in order to build those proprietary tools. A decent chunk of our businesses is made up of multiple-property investors. We are actually one of the largest servicers in the industry of that product. So as far as the mobile technology in all this, the one portal, what are the needs of your customer base? How do those change when you’re talking about the investor side of things as opposed to the needs of a typical homebuyer? In the traditional homebuyer case, many consumers want to put their mortgage on autopilot. In the investor case, they’re taking new loans because they may buy a new property; then they may rent it out, or they may want to fix it and sell it and then they buy another new property. So that tends to be much more high-touch. The investor loan product is also high touch, but it is high-touch in a different way. Historically, the industry has defined hightouch to mean default, but high-touch doesn’t have to mean default. High-touch really just means the customer wants to talk to us.

While refusing to interfere with the order of the Delhi University, the Single Bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh highlighted that: ‘Copying and cheating in examinations is like the Plague. It is a pandemic which can ruin society and the educational system of any country. If the same is left unchecked or if leniency is shown, the same can have a deleterious effect. For any country’s progress, the integrity of the educational system has to be infallible. Whether it is paper setters maintaining utmost confidentiality, students not cheating, invigilators being vigilant, examiners doing their job with utmost alacrity knowing that the future of students is in their hands, Universities and colleges not tampering with results – the conduct of all stakeholders has to reflect commitment and also be unblemished.’ In the present writ petition, the Petitioner, who’s a student of Economics Honours at Daulat Ram College, had challenged the order of the Delhi University by which the examination of the Petitioner for the entire Semester has been cancelled. Submissions Made By The Petitioner The Petitioner submitted that she inadvertently carried the notes she had prepared for her revision in the examination hall as the same were kept in her stationery pouch and she had forgotten to take them out. Half an hour into the commencement of the examination, the Petitioner pleads that she realised that the placards were in her pouch, and she herself voluntarily called the invigilator and gave the same to the invigilator. Despite this, the invigilator accused her of cheating. Submissions Made by Delhi University While informing the court that the Petitioner had signed the undertaking of good conduct, the University submitted that the Petitioner did not disclose the fact to the invigilator that she has carried notes to the examination hall. It was further submitted that an independent expert from Aurobindo College had compared the answer sheets along with the notes which were seized and had come to the conclusion that the material was used by the candidate in answering the paper. The Counselling Committee, after interacting and counselling the Petitioner, had arrived at a conclusion that she was liable to be proceeded with as per ‘Part C’ of the ‘Instructions’, whereas since she apologized, the Committee recommended that she be proceeded under ‘Part B’. Observations of the Court The court observed the fact that the Petitioner did not submit various documents/emails that she had signed before the University wherein she had admitted to the fact that she took the notes with her to the examination hall. The court further noted that it is clear from a perusal of the invigilator’s report that the Petitioner had kept the notes below her answer scripts, and that she had a total of 15 minutes to cheat. The court also took into consideration the counseling performa which confirms that the Petitioner has received counselling on the demerits of adopting unfair means, and that she would not adopt any unfair means in examination in future. While noting that the Petitioner had tried to mislead the court, it was observed that: ‘By these `Instructions’ all candidates were made aware of the consequences of resorting to unfair means. In any event, resorting to unfair means in examinations is downright impermissible and ought not to be encouraged at any cost. The Petitioner was no exception. After appearing before the Counselling committee and after receiving their counselling, she apologised, leading to imposition of a lesser punishment by the University –i.e., instead of punishment under ‘Part C’, she was proceeded under ‘Part B’.’ Therefore, the court refused to interfere with the order of the University.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img
