Archbishop Bernard has played an immensely valuable role in the life of the Anglican Communion for many years both as a bishop and more recently as a Primate.  He also brings extensive ecumenical experience in Burundi, in the Anglican Communion and in the life of the World Council of Churches.  I wish him every blessing in his new role.”Ntahoturi said he is “honored delighted to be chosen for this role, and am looking forward to continuing the work of the dedicated men who have held this post before me.”“I would like to strengthen those areas, especially in peace building, where the Anglican Church and the Roman Catholic Church can work together for a common witness so that the world may believe and God glorified.”Bishop Stephen Platten, chair of the Anglican Centre, said Ntahoturi “brings wide ecumenical and international experience and as an Anglican Primate in a predominantly Roman Catholic country. He follows directors from Eurasia, the Americas and Australasia and so broadens the base of the Centre in completing our continental spread. It is excellent that, like his predecessor, he is a former primate and serving archbishop.” Anglican Communion, Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Shreveport, LA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Rector Bath, NC The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Business space and the entrance to the retirement home are found on the ground floor, followed by five floors containing the main section of the retirement home, while the top four floors contain privately owned homes. The basement contains parking lots for the residents as well as supplementary annexes of the retirement home: its kitchen, maintenance and storage rooms. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauWith a length of 43m by a depth of 28m, the trays form vast surface areas that will be entirely filled on the first five floors by the requirements of the project that is the specific configuration of the retirement home. With the project’s lowest density on the last four floors, there will be a successive shrinkage of the trays, thus bringing the building into correspondence with Boulevard Macdonald’s Local Plan of Urbanism (PLU), and meanwhile providing a generous amount of sunny passageways for the majority of residents. Save this picture!© Stéphane ChalmeauThe retirement home on the first five floors forms a compact volume due to the density of the project in this segment of it. We understood, through a testing of volume, that the subtle allowances certain outer walls contained for unsticking, could result in a rupture in this compactness. The realization of this movement, combined with the employment of paving slabs corresponding to each floor, and the choice of full height windows for each room, put the building back on a human scale. Save this picture!model 01On the south-facing side, the outer walls recede freely to form breaths in the assembled mass, and become a linear set of mezzanines. In the building’s upper part, the movements of the outer walls and paving slabs, combined with a successive shrinkage, signal a change in function. The complex as a whole demonstrates, through its usage of volume, a superposition of functions.Project gallerySee allShow less“e_co_llectiva” Urban Design Project / Athanasios Polyzoidis & Katerina PetsiouArticlesPlanetarium and Science Center / Gillot + GivryArticlesProject locationAddress:Paris, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

6-year-old girl shot in the head by a stray New Year’s Eve bullet: Police

first_imgJobina Fortson/KGO(OAKLAND, Calif.) — A 6-year-old girl is recovering from a gunshot wound to the head after she was struck by a stranger’s stray bullet as the clock struck midnight on New Year’s Eve, according to authorities.Police in Oakland, California, told ABC News that the child was playing in the back yard of her home during a family New Year party when she was shot.Neighbors told ABC Bay Area affiliate KGO-TV that children at the party were counting down to the New Year when suddenly they heard gun shots, and the 6-year-old girl fell to the ground crying and bleeding from her head. Her parents were unaware she had been shot until they got to the hospital, according to KGO-TV.Due to the injury to the child and evidence observed at the scene, Oakland police told ABC News they believed the child was struck by celebratory gun fire.During a press conference on Jan. 1, police officer Johnna Watson said that the wound is “consistent with something that may come from…an angle of something falling.”A stray bullet also hit a car parked outside the party, according to police.Watson told ABC News that Oakland police will not be releasing the girl’s name, but she remains in stable condition.The bullet remains in the girl’s head, according KGO-TV.Oakland Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick visited the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital to check up on the young girl.“An innocent child was affected and harmed by this,” said Kirkpatrick at press conference on Jan. 1. “Put the guns down, do not come to Oakland with your guns.”An investigation into the incident is ongoing and police are offering a $5,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Coronavirus live updates: Diagnosed cases approach half a million worldwide

first_imgnarvikk/iStock(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 22,000 people around the world, including at least 1,000 in the United States.Spain’s death toll has eclipsed that of China where cases of the illness caused by the new respiratory virus, known officially as COVID-19, were first detected back in December. Spain’s count of over 4,000 deaths is now second only to that of Italy, where more than 7,500 people have died from the virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Worldwide, there are more than 487,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19, spanning every continent except Antarctica. With more than 69,000 cases, the United States has the third-highest national total behind Italy and China. The virus has rapidly spread across every U.S. state as well as Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico. At least 117,000 people around the world have recovered from COVID-19. Here’s how the news is developing Thursday. All times Eastern:7:40 a.m.: Prince Charles still working in self-isolation, royal source saysCharles, Prince of Wales, is working at his desk as usual while self-isolating at his estate in Scotland, a royal source told ABC News.The source said Charles has received hundreds of get well soon wishes sent to his official royal residence in London, Clarence House.A Clarence House spokesman confirmed in a statement Wednesday that Charles had tested positive for the novel coronavirus and “has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health.”His wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, has tested negative for the virus, according to the spokesman. The couple is currently self-isolating at Birkhall, their private residence in Scotland.Charles, 71, is the first child of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He is the heir apparent to the British throne.6:32 a.m.: Russia grounds all international flights over coronavirusThe Russian government has ordered the grounding of all international flights as part of new measures against the coronavirus pandemic.Russia’s civil aviation agency Rosaviatsiya will halt “regular and charter air flights from Russian airports to and from foreign countries,” with the exception of flights evacuating Russian citizens from abroad, according to the decree published Thursday on the government’s website.The new travel restriction comes into force at midnight on Friday.As of Thursday, there were 840 diagnosed cases of the novel coronavirus in Russia, according to the latest tally from Johns Hopkins University.5:27 a.m.: Nearly 90% of the world’s student population is out of school due to pandemicMore than 1.5 billion students are not attending schools and universities because of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the latest figures from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.Governments across the globe have closed educational institutions in an attempt to contain the outbreak. More than 160 countries have implemented nationwide school closure, impacting over 87 percent of the world’s student population, according to UNESCO monitoring.Several other nations have implemented localized school closures and, should those become nationwide, millions more students would be affected, UNESCO warned.3:30 a.m.: Diagnosed cases approach half a million worldwideThe number of diagnosed cases worldwide of the novel coronavirus will likely reach half a million in the coming days, the latest data from Johns Hopkins University shows.China still has the highest tally with more than 81,000 diagnosed cases, but Italy isn’t far behind with over 74,000. The U.S. count is approaching 70,000.Meanwhile, the global death toll topped 21,000 on Thursday, with Italy and Spain as the two worst-affected countries.A third of the world’s population is under some kind of coronavirus-related movement restrictions as governments scramble to contain the spread of the disease.

Exploring uncertainties in the relationship between temperature, ice volume, and sea level over the past 50 million years

first_imgand sea level for the past 50 Ma have increased. In parallel, efforts to model ice sheet changes during this period have been ongoing. We review published paleodata and modeling work to provide insights into how sea level responds to changing temperature through changes in ice volume and thermal expansion. To date, the temperature to sea level relationship has been explored for the transition from glacial to interglacial states. Attempts to synthesize the temperature to sea level relationship in deeper time, when temperatures were significantly warmer than present, have been tentative.We first review the existing temperature and sea level dataand model simulations, with a discussion of uncertainty ineach of these approaches. We then synthesize the sea leveland temperature data and modeling results we have reviewedto test plausible forms for the sea level versus temperaturerelationship. On this very long timescale there are noglobally representative temperature proxies, and so we investigate this relationship using deep-sea temperature records and surface temperature records from high and low latitudes.It is difficult to distinguish between the different plausible forms of the temperature to sea level relationship given the wide errors associated with the proxy estimates. We argue that for surface high-latitude Southern Hemisphere temperature and deep-sea temperature, the rate of change of sea level to temperature has not remained constant, i.e., linear, over the past 50 Ma, although the relationship remains ambiguous for the available low-latitude surface temperature data. A nonlinearform between temperature and sea level is consistentwith ice sheet modeling studies. This relationship can beattributed to (1) the different glacial thresholds for Southern Hemisphere glaciation compared to Northern Hemisphere glaciation and (2) the ice sheet carrying capacity of the Antarctic continent.last_img read more
