I hope these African bishops will learn a lesson on the Gospel in the midst of great need. See who comes to help. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Youth Minister Lorton, VA [Anglican Alliance] Bishops from Equatoria, South Sudan, have given harrowing accounts of how recent conflict is affecting local communities and urged the Anglican Alliance and Anglican partners to advocate for relief assistance.Recently the armed conflict that has severely affected the population of Unity, Upper Nile and Jonglei states for two years has spread to Greater Equatoria, the Anglican Alliance learned from representatives of the Episcopal Church of South Sudan & Sudan (ECSS&S) during a recent conference call that it hosted for Anglican Communion partners.“It is important to speed up the process of mobilising resources so that help can reach people suffering now, with no water, no food, no medicine . . . Please share with friends, partners, so that people can get something. It’s a sad situation, very painful,” urged Bishop Stephen Dokolo of Lui Diocese.Bishop Stephen explained that communities in Greater Equatoria depend on the land for their livelihood, growing and harvesting food to sustain them throughout the year. Pastoralist communities that rely on livestock have come from the north looking for green pastures for their animals.“The two can’t really mix,” said Bishop Stephen. Underlying tensions have exploded into conflict, particularly when a governmental decree that the cattle should be taken back home was not respected, he reported. This escalated with the involvement of government forces. Communities have fled to the forest or further afield to camps in nearby towns or even Juba, the capital.People hiding in the forest do not have access to water and are relying on wild plants for food, said Bishop Stephen.There is also great concern that the current violence could result in longer term food insecurity given reports that farmers have not been able to harvest their crops. People have been attacked as they try to get back to their fields, reported the Revd Joseph El Hag, director of SUDRA, ECSS&S’s relief and development arm, and food granaries and shops looted and burned to the ground.Meanwhile, the health situation is worrisome, said Bishop Tandema Andrew of Olo Diocese, with scarce food and medicine reaching remoter areas.“People are dying, it is very precarious,” he said. “Children are dying of malaria, women are dying in childbirth, it is very difficult for people in the bush.”The bishops also called for advocacy for peace to end the conflict that, according to the latest Global Emergencies reports, has left 6.4 million people in need of humanitarian assistance, displaced 1.7 million internally and caused 640,400 South Sudanese to seek refuge in neighbouring countries.“Tell our brothers [and sisters], let this peace be implemented and let us help [the] Government of South Sudan and opposition to implement peace in South Sudan,” said Bishop Tandema.The Anglican Alliance will continue to facilitate support from the Anglican Communion for Equatoria and other areas of South Sudan, and serve as an advocacy and “early-warning” platform for the churches, affirmed Dr Janice Proud, Anglican Alliance Relief and Programmes Manager.“It is good to flag up the real threat to longer term food security. We keep seeing that with emergencies the Church is like an early warning system. We hear about a situation of impending food insecurity from the local church and then three to six months later it becomes international news. By partnering [we] can get things done,” she said.Support the people of South SudanPlease pray for the situation in South Sudan, both in Greater Equatoria and in the others areas affected by the conflict. Pray that the leaders of the different groups may listen to the cry of their people for peace, so that they and their children can return to their homes and resume their normal lives.

The home is located in a natural clearing, which consequently avoided any mature tree removal. The exterior is camouflaged with black plastic cladding and mirrored glass, allowing it to recede into the shadow of the rainforest canopy. A light interior space clad with plywood opens out to the rainforest surrounds, and engages the canopy through tall south-facing windows.

The scenery is the backwoods of Alagoas, Brazil, a place so atypical of great beauty and simplicity.

Both teams have beaten top ten teams and both have their eyes on the NCAA tournament in March.The women have won five straight conference games, and the men secured their first Big 12 win over a top ten opponent against No. 7 West Virginia Monday night.TCU guard Alex Robinson drives past West Virginia guard Jevon Carter. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSotoThe contrast to the 2012-13 season, TCU’s first in the Big 12, couldn’t be starker. The teams combined for a record of 20-42.Head coaches Raegan Pebley and Jamie Dixon both talked about how the teams are working together to change the culture of basketball in Fort Worth.“We’re close,” Dixon said. “It’s a good thing.”Pebley has taken notice of Dixon’s support.“One of the things I appreciate about Jamie is he believes in women’s basketball,” Pebley said. “He believes that the two sports grow together.”Pebley said she believes some of Dixon’s support comes from his sister, Maggie Dixon. Maggie was the head coach of the Army women’s basketball team and died of a heart attack at the age of 28, weeks after leading Army to their first-ever NCAA tournament.The TCU women played in the annual Maggie Dixon classic earlier this year against Texas A&M.The coaches also pointed to the August trip to Australia when the teams traveled together and competed against Australian teams as part of their preseason.The TCU women’s basketball team pose for a picture in Australia. Photo courtesy: GoFrogs.com“The trip to Australia, both of us doing that together, I don’t know of any other school that has played doubleheaders and is intentional in both teams really changing the culture of basketball and the fans getting behind basketball here in Fort Worth,” Pebley said.Dixon said that the trip allowed the teams to get closer than most other programs in the country.The proximity of the team’s facilities is also another reason why they are closer than most other men’s and women’s programs.The teams share the same practice courts and the offices of the coaching staffs are just across the hall from one another.Both teams play this Saturday with the men going on the road at Vanderbilt and the No. 24 ranked women taking on Oklahoma at home.

Home / Daily Dose / Consumer Credit Default Rates Paint Mixed Picture Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Mortgage default rates declined and outstanding mortgage balances were well below their 2008 peak in March 2016, according to the March 2016 S&P/Experian Consumer Credit Default Indices (SPICE Indices) released on Tuesday.The composite default index, which consists of the first and second mortgage default rates, the auto loan default rate, and the bank card default rate, dropped by four basis points from February to March (0.97 percent to 0.93 percent) and by 12 basis points over-the-year in March.The first mortgage default rate declined by seven basis points over-the-month and by 15 basis points over-the-year in March down to 0.77 percent. The second mortgage default rate of 0.59 percent in March represented a decline of one basis point over-the-month and an increase of nine basis points over-the-year.The auto loan default rate slightly declined both over-the-month and over-the-year down to 1.02 percent. The huge increase was seen in the bank card default rate, which was down by seven basis points over-the-year but up by 36 basis points over-the-month to 2.92 percent.“The continuing low rates of consumer credit defaults in mortgages, auto, and bank card loans are positive signs for the economy,” said David M. Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices. “Large mortgage debts followed by rapidly rising defaults in all kinds of consumer credit were key causes of the financial crisis. Conditions today are much improved; not only are defaults down, but outstanding mortgage balances were about 12 percent below the peak seen in the first quarter of 2008. Debt service ratios are close to the record lows set in the last two years as well. This all suggests that consumer spending should continue to support modest economic growth.”The increasing bank card default rate and the declining mortgage rate tell different stories about consumers’ borrowing patterns, according to Blitzer. For starters, the bank card default rate has been both greater and more volatile than mortgage default rates.“While bank card balances and defaults saw increases, consumer prices were flat, indicating that the growth in balances reflects increased spending,” Blitzer said. “Mortgage balances barely grew even though home prices, as measured by the S&P/CaseShiller Home Price Index, are rising 5 to 6 percent annually. The substantial majority of home sales are of existing homes, which means mortgages are being paid off at the same time new mortgages are being written.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News Print This Post Tagged with: Consumer Credit Default Rates Mortgage Defaults S&P/Experian Consumer Credit Default Indices Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago April 19, 2016 3,095 Views The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe

While highlighting the hardship that must be faced by these workmen due to COVID19, the Single Bench of Justice Navin Chawla further directed the Delhi Government as well as the Delhi State Legal Services Authority necessary assistance and workforce to the said Board so that verification of applications can be done expeditiously. The order has come in a PIL filed by Mr Jay Pal, seeking adequate compensation for construction workers who have lost work due to the COVID19 lockdown. After being informed that there are around 91 workers whose applications for pension are still pending before district offices, the court directed the Board to expedite the process of scrutinizing the applications of these 91 workers and take a decision thereon, positively within a period of four weeks from today. The court observed: ‘In case these workers are found entitled to the pensionary benefits, the same be released to these workers within the same period. For the workers who are not found eligible, the respondent no.1 shall communicate the reasons for rejection of their applications to such workers and supply a copy thereof to the learned counsel for the petitioners, who may take it up with such workers for further course of action.’ During the course of the proceedings, the court was informed of the fact that certain applications got rejected due to discrepancy in documents provided by the applicant for verifying age. In light of these submissions, the court ordered that the Board shall grant an opportunity to such workers to produce further documents/make representation before it in support of their claim. For this purpose, the Board shall call upon such workers to appear before the concerned officer to produce such documents/representation.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Story
