We are spending hundreds of millions of dollars in these markets.“The acquisition gives us a platform to develop school learning in India.”Pearson, which had acquired a 17.2 per cent stake in TutorVista in 2009, will now own 76.2 per cent of the online firm. It plans to increase the holding to 80 per cent by February.The British educational technology provider, which also owns Penguin Books and the Financial Times, expects the deal to add to adjusted earnings per share in 2012.Its move from a pure book publisher to the leading educational technology provider has enabled the company to gain market share in North America and helped improve results.The Indian firm, which is currently valued at $211m, has raised $38m in venture funding in the last four years.Blended growth rate in Indian education services firms is seen at 21 per cent over the next 12 months, according to estimates, outstripping the 18 per cent growth forecast in the information technology sector.

E. Mark Stevenson of Episcopal Migration Ministries, or EMM, says in the statement (included below).The Rev. E. Mark Stevenson, Episcopal Migration Ministries’ director, holds a sign listing the biblical imperatives for welcoming the stranger. Photo: Episcopal Migration Ministries via FacebookFederal officials announced in a Sept. 27 Department of State special briefing the planned cap of 45,000 refugee admissions for the 2018 fiscal year — the lowest number in the history of the Refugee Admissions Program.The regional breakdowns will be Africa, 19,000; East Asia, 5,000; Europe and Central Asia, 2,000; Latin America and the Caribbean, 1,500; and Near East South Asia, 17,000.Federal law requires the president to make an annual determination of the maximum number of refugees who will be allowed to resettle in the United States. Under President Trump, the number will be cut to less than half the historic average number of admissions.There are more than 65.6 million refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced people all over the globe, forced by violence to leave their homes, according to EMM.EMM is one of nine agencies that contract with the U.S. government to resettle refugees. The other resettlement agencies are Church World Service, Ethiopian Community Development Council, HIAS (formerly known as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society), International Rescue Committee, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Migration and Refugee Services, and World Relief.Although EMM receives some money from the Episcopal Church, the majority of its income comes from contracts with the federal government to cover the costs of resettling refugees approved for U.S. entry. Stevenson said 99.5 percent of the contract money directly goes to resettling refugees. The rest of the income is for administrative costs, including all staff salaries. Any unused money goes back to the government.EMM had announced in April that it would cut its network by six officers in the new fiscal year, in anticipation of a reduction in refugee resettlement under Trump.Refugees benefit everyone, Stevenson said Sept. 28, “providing a fresh infusion of entrepreneurial spirit and friendship into a country built into a world leader over centuries” by such values.Also, welcoming people into the United States from other countries is a Christian act, Stevenson reminded Episcopalians. Jesus says in the gospel that the way to him, his grace and his redemption is among the poor, the sick and the stranger.— Amy Sowder is a special correspondent for the Episcopal News Service. She is also a journalist and editor based in Brooklyn.The Rev. E. Mark Stevenson, director of Episcopal Migration Ministries, released the following statement Sept. 28 in response to the Trump administration’s decision to reduce the number of refugees allowed annually into the United States to 45,000:The Administration has reported to Congress that their intent is to set the refugee admissions ceiling for the coming year at 45,000 persons, a cap that is not only the lowest in the history of the program but which also runs counter to the reality of an ever-growing worldwide crisis. At this critical moment, 65.6 million women, children, and men live forcibly displaced by violence from their homes, including 22.5 million refugees who have fled across the border of their homeland to another country into situations often only slightly more sustainable than the horrors they have fled. By the end of this day – and of every day that will follow for some time – more than 28,000 additional persons will find themselves in this predicament. In the face of such a crisis, this cut in our response to less than half the historic average is sad and hard-hearted.We are thankful, however, that we are now one step closer to fully resuming a program of welcoming refugees to the safety and hope of this land. We live in a time of great hurt, yet also in a time of great promise. These past many months have raised awareness across our great nation of the struggles faced by refugees, and of the benefits to all of us when they find a new life in one of our communities. Refugees have overcome the greatest of trials, and refugees are providing a fresh infusion of entrepreneurial spirit and friendship into a country built into a world leader over centuries by such things. The struggles, and the successes, of these new Americans provide inspiration, opportunity, and optimism for a brighter future for us all.Jesus, in the parable of the mustard seed, reminds us that even the smallest of faithful acts can grow into something spectacular and transformative. He also instructs us throughout the gospel that it is among the poor, the sick, and the stranger that we will find him, and his grace and redemption. So, we will welcome 45,000 children of a loving God to a better life in this coming year, and pray and work for even more in the years following. And, we will conform our wills to the Divine Will, loving even as Jesus has loved, to the glory of God and the transformation of our own lives.To learn more about ministry among refugees, or to donate to this work in this critical time, we invite you to visit EpiscopalMigrationMinistries.org.The Rev.

Leadership impairment resolutions pass, take effect Jan. 1, 2019

first_img Associate Rector Columbus, GA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET [Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] The 79th General Convention passed three resolutions which came to convention as a result of  the Commission on Impairment and Leadership, which refer to intervention, evaluation and possible re-entry or action needed related to various forms of leadership impairment.The three resolutions, D057, D058 and D059, speak to issues surrounding leadership impairment due to alcohol and substance misuse and behavioral addictions.The resolutions will take effect Jan. 1, 2019D057 calls for training on alcohol and substance Misuse, and “directs the Executive Council to take the necessary steps to develop a mandatory training program with respect to alcohol and substance misuse and other forms of addiction (to be renewed at designated intervals) for all persons in the process of formation for ordination and for all priests and deacons currently licensed.”A Rapid Response Team for Crisis Intervention is called for in D058, which “recommends that the presiding bishop, drawing on the research of the Commission on Leadership and Impairment, establish a team of advisers or consultants to serve as a resource on alcoholism and substance misuse and other forms of addiction to provide a rapid response to issues of questionable impairment, to provide clergy or other concerned individuals with confidential advice, and to assist with monitoring and recovery.”And in D059, Executive Council and the Pastoral Development Committee of the House of Bishops evaluate their policies and practices surrounding alcohol and substance use so that changes can be made that “may contribute to a healthy environment with regard to alcohol and substance misuse and other forms of addiction” in the context of meetings and gatherings. This resolution also “recommends that CREDO develop a program component to help participants explore their relationship to alcohol and substance misuse and other forms of addiction.”The commission decided that bringing resolutions to convention was not part of the mandate it received.  The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies and Executive Council vice president, told the council earlier in the year that she had asked the deputy members of convention’s legislative committee on church-wide leadership to consider drafting resolutions that pertain to parts of the report’s recommendation that had not been addressed by resolutions from other sources. Ohio Deputy William Powel, a member of the legislative commitee who served as legal counsel for the impairment commission, proposed D057, D058 and D059.All three resolutions were passed by the House of Deputies as part of the July 8 consent calendar. There was no debate in that house. Resolution D059 passed the House of Bishops on July 9, and Resolutions D057 and D058 were approved on the House of Bishops’ July 10 consent calendar.– Sharon Tillman is a freelance writer for Episcopal News Service.Editor’s note: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated the origins of the three resolutions.

Justin Tipuric scores two great tries against Newport Gwent Dragons

first_imgTuesday Oct 29, 2013 Justin Tipuric scores two great tries against Newport Gwent Dragons Welsh flanker Justin Tipiruc scored twice as the Ospreys beat Newport Gwent Dragons 40-17 at the Liberty Stadium on Friday night. The Lions tourist scored a try in each half, putting down a marker for Wales inclusion for the upcoming Autumn Internationals.His try in the first half came after he stayed up in support of a great run by Matthew Morgan, who offloaded in the tackle by fellow Wales loose forward Toby Faletau.The second was an individual effort as he showed that he may well be a frustrated back, getting the ball in a tiny bit of space before putting it on the boot, then collecting after a good bounce.He had Andrew Bishop on his inside, and if you watch closely afterwards it looked like he got up and apologised to the centre for not passing to him. Fair enough, but the chip and chase was perfectly executed, and it helped him pick up the Man of the Match award on his 50th appearance for the club.Dragons head coach Lyn Jones admitted that it was a pity he didn’t get a hat-trick.“It’s nice to observe and appreciate good rugby play. When there were 29 players slugging it out in the first half, he just kept himself above everybody, and he carried it through to the second half. He was like two players on the field,” Jones said.“He was excellent, outstanding and in lots of respects it was disappointing he didn’t get a hat-trick.”You can view his other try, and the full match round up, using the links belowView Tipuric’s first half try | View the full match round upA look at the try that Tipuric scored after a great run from speedy Matthew MorganFull match highlights of the Ospreys vs Newport Gwent Dragons in the RaboDirect Pro12 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Set on a verdant land parcel dotted with large mature trees, the Three Trees House house is nestled -much like a fork- between three large trees. The premise for choosing to situate the building amidst the trees was to preserve the existing trees while enjoying the natural setting in close proximity of the habitable areas. The house is conceived as an assembly of two fairly rectangular blocks, the east facing front block and west facing rear one. Both are connected by a narrow, transparent, staircase block. The largest tree of the three, a flowering Kachnar (bauhinia), becomes the centerpiece of the courtyard space. The shaded north facing courtyard is further animated with different rooms fronting onto it along with the large overhang canopies providing constant play of light and shade. As experienced from within the house, this space brings an enhanced sense of openness inside and also unfolds constantly changing views of the outdoors, as well as the building, as one moves around the house and vertically between different levels of the house. Save this picture!© Ranjan Sharma / Lightzone IndiaThe front or east block has the public functions such as the entry lobby, drawing room, dinning, and bar all of which face the large front lawn as well as the relatively intimate courtyard. The rear block has a large double height family living room which opens out to the courtyard and the pool deck and two bedrooms facing the rear lawn. The upper level has four bedroom, puja room, and a lounge area for the family to gather. The gym and sauna pavilion sits just across the swimming pool, along the Northern face of the property, and squares-off the sense of enclosure around the courtyard. Save this picture!© Ranjan Sharma / Lightzone IndiaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ranjan Sharma / Lightzone IndiaOne of the the clients needs was of a large and lofty formal drawing room spilling out to a garden. This resulted in a three side open, 20 feet tall, lantern like space framing views to the picturesque front lawn on the east and the eventful pool-side on the west side. Save this picture!© Ranjan Sharma / Lightzone IndiaWithin this lush almost ambrosial setting, the predominantly hard and monolithic landscape design creates a deliberate experiential counterpoint. The building facade also becomes part of this setting, especially at the ground-plane level where, every so often, large vertically furrowed stone-clad panel walls frame the open space expanse. The expansive and largely untouched front and rear lawns are anchored by couple of anachronous ficus trees that act as generous foreground for the house. It is the courtyard with its orchestrated reflective pool, infinity-edged swimming pool, and floating wooden decks which engages with the mostly transparent, folding threshold of the house.Save this picture!© Ranjan Sharma / Lightzone IndiaProject gallerySee allShow lessMicro-apartment in Berlin / spamroom + johnpaulcossSelected ProjectsCommunity Green Station / Hong Kong Architectural Services DepartmentSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Ranjan Sharma / Lightzone India Three Trees House / DADA & Partners 2014 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/629764/three-trees-house-dada-and-partners Clipboard Houses Save this picture!© Ranjan Sharma / Lightzone India+ 24 Share CopyHouses•New Delhi, India Area:  17000 ft² Area:  17000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Mr. Bharat Sawhney Design Process “COPY”center_img “COPY” ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeDADA & PartnersOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew DelhiHousesIndiaPublished on May 15, 2015Cite: “Three Trees House / DADA & Partners” 14 May 2015.

Obituary: David Thorne, Kidney Research UK

first_imgDavid Thorne, Community Fundraising Manager for Kidney Research UK for 10 years, has died aged 54.He was a long-serving committee member and treasurer of the Institute of Fundraising Yorkshire. In an announcement today to members, fellow committee members said “David will be remembered by many for his enthusiasm, good humour and his tireless contribution to many causes, including IoF Yorkshire”.A tribute fund has already been set up in his memory and has attracted donations and personal messages and tributes to him. Advertisement On the page, Regional Manager Karen Whyman, recalled how David had driven the support vehicle each year from Blackpool to Paris for the charity’s Tower to Tower Cycle Ride. When he reached 50, he decided to cycle the route himself “whilst continuing to give a running commentary each evening in [his] unique comedic style. One cyclist said he couldn’t wait for the evenings to arrive and the cycling was getting in the way”.A memorial service will be held on Saturday 9 January 2010 at 11am, St Oswald’s Church, Sowerby, near Thirsk.www.kidneyresearchuktributes.org/DavidThorneTributeFund AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  28 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 23 December 2009 | Newscenter_img Obituary: David Thorne, Kidney Research UK Tagged with: Recruitment / people About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Seven Horned Frogs to participate in NFL combine

National champion LSU received the most combine invites with 16.Among those invited were wide receiver Jalen Reagor, cornerback Jeff Gladney, defensive tackle Ross Blacklock, offensive tackle Lucas Niang, guard Cordel Iwagwu, and the running back duo of Sewo Olonilua and Darius Anderson.The combine is essentially an extended job interview for players, according to the NFL Combine’s official website. Entire team staffs will be in attendance, including front-office executives, coaches and medical staff all making the trip for the league’s biggest pre-draft event. Over the course of the week, team officials will measure, interview, work out, medically examine and test players to see if they’ll fit into their roster. Players are measured and interviewed Feb. 24-25 and participate in on-field workouts from Feb. 27 through March 1. Defensive end Ben Banogu, the most recent Horned Frog to impress at the combine, set the combine record for the broad jump by a defensive lineman with an 11-foot-2-inch mark in 2019. Banogu also had the top vertical leap of any defensive lineman with 40 inches.Wide receiver Josh Doctson also impressed scouts in 2016 on his way to being drafted in the first round by the Washington Redskins by posting the top receiver numbers in the vertical jump (41 inches), broad jump (10 feet 11 inches) 20-yard shuttle (4.08 seconds) and 60-yard shuttle (11.06 seconds). Defensive end LJ Collier was the only Frog selected in the first round of last year’s draft, taken by the Seattle Seahawks with the 29th overall pick. Wide receiver Jalen Reagor: 5 feet 11 inches, 206 poundsReagor threatens to be one of the fastest players in the draft. As part of his 2019 college football freaks list, The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman said Reagor has previously clocked a 4.29 in the 40-yard dash. Just for reference, the fastest time ever recorded at the combine is 4.22 seconds by former Washington Huskies receiver John Ross. NFL Draft Analyst Lance Zeirlein said in his scouting report Reagor “has more playmaking talent than receiving talent” and is “a versatile receiver who could spice up the offensive gumbo.”NFL.com rates Reagor a 6.39 and predicts he will be a starter within two seasons. Cornerback Jeff Gladney: 6 feet, 183 poundsJeff Gladney celebrates an incomplete pass attempt by Ohio State in 2018. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Coming off of a year highlighted by a first-team All-Big 12 selection, the three-time all-conference cornerback is a borderline first-round prospect who could slip into the second round. A strong combine performance could be a massive help in solidifying Gladney’s first-round status. Zeirlien said in Gladney’s scouting report that he is a “press cover irritant who plays an extremely competitive brand of football from snap to whistle.” Over the past two seasons, Gladney accumulated three interceptions and 26 pass breakups.Like Reagor, NFL.com gives him a 6.39 rating and predicts he will be a starter within two seasons. Defensive tackle Ross Blacklock: 6 feet 4 inches, 305 poundsBlacklock was a first-year All-American before sitting out his entire sophomore season due to a torn achilles. Blacklock returned as a junior for the 2019 season, in which he recorded nine tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks. Zeirlein said Blacklock has “menacing disruptive qualities as a gap seeker.” According to The Ringer draft analyst Danny Kelly, Blacklock’s best trait is his quick-twitch ability to get off the ball at the snap. Blacklock received a draft grade of 6.4 and is predicted to be a starter within two seasons.Right tackle Lucas Niang: 6 feet 6 inches, 315 poundsNiang earned second-team All-Big 12 in his junior season with the Frogs before sitting out the back half of his senior season due to a hip injury that required surgery.“Niang is a scheme-diverse run blocker with athleticism for move blocks and technique/leverage to open running lanes with power,” Zeirlein said.Niang is predicted to be a starter within two seasons with a draft grade of 6.32. Running back Darius Anderson: 5 feet 10 inches, 208 poundsDarius Anderson takes a carry against Oklahoma at Amon G. Carter Stadium in 2018. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.A two-time TCU rushing season leader, Anderson shared the backfield the majority of his time at TCU with Olonilua. Anderson was a two-time All-Big 12 honorable mention as a Frog and is responsible for one of the most memorable highlights in recent memory — his 93-yard touchdown run against Ohio State. Draft analysts are less favorable on Anderson, as he is projected to go in the 5th round or lower.NFL.com predicts Anderson has a chance to make the end of a roster or a practice squad with a draft grade of 5.58.Running back Sewo Olonilua: 6 feet 3 inches, 232 poundsOlonilua, another member of Feldman’s college football freaks list, spent his TCU career as the go-to in goal-to-go touchdowns. While draft experts say that Olonilua’s athleticism and size could be to his advantage, Zeirlein notes that he lacks many of the “checklist” traits from an NFL scouting point of view.Like Anderson, Olonilua is predicted to make the end of a roster or a practice squad with a draft grade of 5.65. Offensive guard Cordel Iwagwu: 6 feet 3 inches, 309 poundsIwagwu dealt with injuries for most of his career as a Horned Frog but played in all 12 games his senior year. Iwagwu is listed by most draft analysts as a late-round prospect due to his lack of power and ability to stop an NFL defensive front. His draft grade is 5.4 and is listed as a priority undrafted free agent.

Foreclosure Sales Are Way Down—But So Are Solutions

By comparison, the industry completed 76,000 foreclosure sales during the quarter, which calculates to a ratio of 4.4 non-foreclosure solutions for every one foreclosure sale that was completed during the three-month period.While the number of foreclosure sales completed dropped significantly both over-the-quarter (15 percent, down from 89,000) and over-the-year (31 percent, down from 110,000) in Q3 2015, the number of non-foreclosure solutions also declined at similar rates—18 percent over-the-quarter (down from 411,000) and 28 percent over-the-year (down from 469,000).“As loss mitigation efforts have slowed down overall, we are still very focused on markets where recovery has been slower, where unemployment rates remain high and where affordability gaps exist,” HOPE NOW Executive Director Eric Selk said. “Our approach to housing has evolved over the years as the market has shifted from crisis to recovery and our members remain committed to achieving stability in the market.”Out of the 337,000 non-foreclosure solutions completed by the industry in Q3, approximately 98,000 were permanent loan modifications, 21,000 were short sales, and 218,000 included repayment plans, deeds-in-lieu-of-foreclosure agreements, or other retention plans, according to HOPE NOW. Within those 98,000 permanent loan modifications, approximately 69,000 homeowners completed proprietary loan modifications while approximately 29,000 completed modifications under the government’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP).Foreclosure starts also declined substantially in Q3 both over-the-quarter down to 159,000 (9 percent, down from 176,000) and over-the-year (26 percent, down from 215,000), according to HOPE NOW.HOPE NOW, a voluntary, private sector alliance of mortgage servicers, investors, mortgage insurers and non-profit counselors, has hosted eight loss mitigation events in 2015 in areas hit hardest by the foreclosure crisis.“The data we have collected at our loss mitigation events in 2015 is painting a very clear picture of borrower profiles and what mortgage servicers are able to offer their at-risk customers,” Selk said. “Through eight events this year, 81 percent of attendees are either delinquent on their mortgage or in imminent default and 36 percent are first time applicants for a loan modification. That shows a clear need for immediate attention. Of the borrowers on site, 64% are reviewed for some sort of long term retention option, with another 5 percent reviewed for a short term retention solution such as forbearance.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
