There were five candidates on the slate for this election, and on the second ballot Woodliff-Stanley received 26 of 34 clergy votes and 13 of the 19.5 votes from the lay order representing the parishes and missions of the diocese. To win the election, a candidate needed to carry the required majority in both the lay and clergy orders on the same ballot.Bishop-elect Woodliff-Stanley joined the convention on Zoom to address the delegates and all of the diocese just after the election results were announced. “You have given a vision of what is possible,” the bishop-elect shared with those attending the Electing Convention virtually, adding “It’s a vision I hope I can honor.” She went on to say: “Ours is the call to see the hearts of all the people of the world, beginning with one another.”Raised and ordained in Mississippi, Woodliff-Stanley has served as rector of a parish, as canon on the staffs of two bishops of The Episcopal Church, and also in churchwide ministry focused on stewardship of finances and property. She is married to Nathan Woodliff-Stanley and they have two adult sons.

Central Florida has a new Thanksgiving tradition: FusionFest

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Thanksgiving 2019From the Orange County NewsroomOnce again this year, Central Floridians and visitors to our area will get to celebrate our community’s rich diversity over Thanksgiving weekend, as the explosion of culture, color, and creativity that is FusionFest returns to Downtown Orlando Saturday and Sunday, November 30th and December 1st.In its second annual edition, FusionFest will spotlight the sights, sounds, and tastes of more than 100 ethnic and heritage communities that call Orlando home. Beginning at noon each day with a large procession of flags, elected officials, performers, giant puppets and music, the festival will also feature dance performances, visual art, poetry, fashion shows, films, games and other experiences that make it possible to “take a walk around the world without ever leaving Downtown Orlando.”Last year’s inaugural FusionFest drew about 8,000 attendees, and an even greater turnout is expected for this year’s event, which will again occupy the Seneff Arts Plaza at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and the Orlando City Hall Commons Plaza. Participating groups and performing artists will live up to the festival’s credo of “I can be me here” by presenting authentic dances, music, fashions, and other cultural products from their various homelands. Special contest performances will put the “fusion” in FusionFest by marrying the creative traditions of seemingly unrelated realms – like the synthesis of Irish step dance and American hip-hop that was showcased by last year’s $1,000 grand prize winner, Central Florida Irish Dance.Short films will tell the stories of 23 notable Orlandoans who came here from points all across the globe, while fashion shows and design contests will show how we wear our ethnic traditions on our back. Poets of many backgrounds will put their life experiences into words, and food and merchandise will be available for purchase that will represent the best of the participating cultures. New features at this year’s festival will include a Fun & Games station where attendees of all ages can enjoy the playtime rituals of 22 cultures, and a Human Interaction area that will allow participants to swap stories and immortalize their heritage in origami.And once again, one lucky raffle winner will receive airfare to any destination in the world. Last year’s winner, Ethan Pendergast, was able to visit Jamaica and take along five family members to visit the grandparents he had never met.Terry Olson, the festival’s architect and “Chief Instigator,” sums up its appeal: By showing up to share a smile and your personal heritage, he says, “you may discover just how different other people really aren’t!”FusionFest is a project of the Downtown Arts District, with support from Orange County Government, the Orlando Downtown Development Board, and the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. In its inaugural edition, the event received the Award of Excellence in the Downtown Orlando Partnership’s Golden Brick Awards.  Mayor Jerry L Demings will lead the Diversitastic! Parade, presented by Tupperware, on Sunday, December 1 at noon coming around Orlando City Hall, down South Street from Boone to Orange, entering the festival on Orange and traversing to the Dr. Phillips Center and back to Orlando City Hall.

Virgin Money Giving introduces separate campaigns pages for charities

Videos, images and social media related to the shared campaign can now all be presented on a single campaign page.The Campaigns function offers a variety of flexible features to enable charities to present and combine multiple fundraising activities under one appeal.1. Appeal Virgin Money Giving introduces separate campaigns pages for charities The tool can be used to create an appeal page. This could be for a particular project e.g. church roof repairs, at a certain time of year e.g. Christmas appeal, or an emergency of disaster appeal. Targets can be added and a running total of the amount raised by all contributors or participants is shown.2. EventsCharities can also set up a single campaign around an event, like a marathon, fun run, or perhaps a series of challenge events. The page would function as an ‘event hub’ so that various people and groups with fundraising activities would all appear on the same page. This could well help spur these people onto greater fundraising when they see their activities are part of a vibrant and active larger effort. Advertisement Jo Barnett, Executive Director at Virgin Money Giving said:“We’re really proud of our new Campaigns functionality and in the field of online giving, we think this is pretty unique. Some of our charities told us that the ability to unify all of the elements of a fundraising campaign into one central page would be really efficient and useful, so that’s what we’ve done. Everyone involved can now go to a central page and see what’s going on. We hope it will create a great buzz around charities and their future fundraising initiatives”. How it works[youtube height=”450″ width=”800″][/youtube] Tagged with: charity of the year corporate Digital Events Virgin Money Giving 3. CorporateCorporate supporters can use the Campaigns function to create a ‘charity of the year’ page, pulling together various activities undertaken by different departments or companies within a group. Again, this could well motivate employees to raise even more to beat other colleagues and departments.Paul Prothero is the leader of the Reigate and Cheam British Military Fitness (BMF) group and is using the Campaigns function as he trains to take part in the Virgin Money London Marathon. He and his team are aiming to raise £50,000 for the Children’s Trust in Tadworth.He said:“I love the new Campaigns tool. It is so convenient to have everyone focussed on one place and to watch our combined efforts build-up. We can see who is doing what and where events are happening to help us hit our goal of £50,000. We’re currently at the £17,000 mark and counting.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Carers Trust launches fund for unpaid carers to mark 70th birthday of Princess Royal

Many have had to sacrifice a job and career to do so, and there is little or no financial reward in return. Tagged with: Funding 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 Melanie May | 18 May 2021 | News Carers Trust launches fund for unpaid carers to mark 70th birthday of Princess Royal The Carers Trust is fundraising for a new fund that will enable it to significantly increase the number of unpaid carers it is able to provide with grants for respite breaks. Launched by its President the Princess Royal in celebration of her 70th birthday (which took place last year), The Princess Royal Respite Fund for Carers has been created to secure long-term funding for the charity’s respite services, and aims to raise £3 million over the next three years from a range of donors, including trusts and foundations, major donors, corporate supporters and the public. Martin McMillan has been appointed to lead all fundraising for the new fund, taking up the position of chair of its Appeal Board. McMillan has held leadership positions across the charity sector for 35 years, including Chair of the North West Full Stop Appeal for the NSPCC, Deputy Chair of the Halle Orchestra, and Chair of the National Garden Scheme, which is a longstanding corporate donor to Carers Trust. center_img Through this, it aims to help 30,000 unpaid carers take a much-needed break through grants made via the Carers Trust’s Network of over 120 local partner services. Advertisement He commented: “As most of us begin to emerge from months of lockdown, many unpaid carers will be staying at home to continue providing round-the-clock care for a loved one without the prospect of even the smallest break. They need our support right now, and that is why Carers Trust is launching the Respite Fund – so we can support more carers to have time to themselves and the breaks they both need, and deserve. On behalf of my fellow colleagues and trustees, I would like to thank Her Royal Highness for her unstinting support which has made the Respite Fund possible.” “It’s no exaggeration to say these unsung heroes are the glue holding society together. So we must do all we can to support them and help them continue in their caring role. “I can think of no better way to do that than by donating to this fund. All the money raised will be used to ensure unpaid carers get what they say they need most – a break, time to themselves when they can collect their thoughts and re-energise themselves. I urge everyone to do what they can to support this fund. It will make a greater difference for these unsung heroes than we can ever know.” Chair of Carers Trust Board of Trustees, John McLean OBE, said: AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

After defeating the coup attempt, the Bolivarian Revolution continues its fight

first_imgMarch 3 — According to the Juan Guaidó, the self-appointed “interim president” of Venezuela, Feb. 23 was going to be a great victory. The National Bolivarian Armed Forces (FANB) would split in two, let U.S. Agency for International Development trucks into the country, and deliver him to the presidential palace at Miraflores.Guaidó’s proclamations, whether it be his presidency or his plans for the country, received a great deal of attention by international news media. But no matter how many times CNN, Fox and the New York Times repeat a lie, at some point reality asserts itself. Reality did on Feb. 23.The united forces of military and civil society stopped the USAID trucks at the Venezuelan borders with Colombia and Brazil. Despite several days of violent attacks from opposition forces, the coup plotters were unable to create a provocation that would create a pretext for war. The self-proclaimed president remained in Colombia, which made him a self-exiled president.Now Guaidó, his supporters and his masters in Washington have abandoned all constitutional legitimacy. According to the article in the Venezuelan constitution that they had originally — and illegally — invoked, an interim president has to call elections within 30 days. When Nicolás Maduro held the position of interim president after the death of President Hugo Chávez, this deadline was respected.In front of a massive march in Caracas on Feb. 23, the legitimate president, Nicolás Maduro, declared that the coup d’état had failed. Maduro remains in Miraflores, Venezuela continues in peace (tense though it may be), and even the Lima Group of Latin American countries that supported Guaidó has refused to publicly support a military intervention.Despite the lack of international support for a military intervention, it is still possible for imperialism to intervene in more covert ways. After meeting with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, the Lima Group and several Latin American heads of state, Guaidó was able to re-enter Venezuela on March 4, signaling that Washington still has plans for the country.People power against imperialismIt would be reasonable to wonder if Guaidó and his allies truly believed they had support among the Venezuelan masses and the military. They might have surprised themselves, since their whole plan seemed to revolve around getting so-called “humanitarian aid” into the country and overthrowing the government from there. As the day’s events showed, such an action was impossible without at least partial military support.What’s more likely is that the plan was always to put on a show, to stage a false-flag provocation as pretext for a direct military intervention. After all, the strongest weapon that the Bolivarian Revolution has had during its 20 years in power has been its mass movement, which has repeatedly defeated the plans of imperialism and its pawns in the Venezuelan oligarchy.In 2002, it was the mass mobilizations in Caracas that freed Chávez from jail and reversed the coup that had imprisoned him. It was also popular power that withstood and defeated the oligarchy’s oil shutdown later that year.Just as in 2002, it was the people who defeated the attempted coup. The FANB remained united in defense of the homeland because of its unity with the communal militias that mobilized across the country. During the month between Guaidó’s self-proclamation and his attempt to bring in trucks from Colombia and Brazil, the streets of Venezuela were filled with “Chavistas” marching to reject imperialism’s plans for their country.The Local Supply and Production Committees (CLAP) not only have remained operational while distributing food to millions of the poorest Venezuelans, but some are even expanding their functions. What the CLAPs represent are not just accessible food sources but the mobilized and organized people fighting on the front lines of the economic war.The Venezuelan people have been fighting for 20 years to build a new society, independent of imperialism and based on popular power. Without a doubt, imperialism wants to plunder Venezuelan oil, gold and rare minerals. But even more than its drive to seize natural resources, imperialism seeks to destroy the unity and organization of a people that for two decades have resisted its control.The coup failed, the threat remainsPopular mobilization in the cities and at the borders defeated the coup attempt carried out by the most violent sections of the Venezuelan opposition. But one victory, even one as great as this, is inadequate to end the dangers from U.S. imperialism that is not just global but addicted to oil and militarism.As long as imperialism exists, there is a threat to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela because imperialism’s weapons are not limited to tanks and bombs. Beyond the constant threat of military action, imperialism has relied on its economic and information weapons, and attacks continue in these arenas.While Washington has failed to gather the necessary support for a military intervention, imperialism is well versed in covert wars. In the 1980s, the United States created and armed rebel groups in Nicaragua in an attempt to overthrow the socialist government there. In fact, U.S. Special Envoy Elliot Abrams was twice convicted for lying about his role in this very plot, the so-called Iran-Contra Affair. Guaidó’s return to Venezuela would fit into this strategy.There is longstanding paramilitary activity on the border between Venezuela and Colombia, and there have been rumors that a so-called “liberation army” is being assembled. The Cuban government has denounced the movement of U.S. troops throughout the Caribbean, and Russia has warned of attempts to use Ukraine as an intermediary to smuggle weapons to Venezuelan opposition forces. (  The corporate media offensive has focused on the economic crisis in Venezuela, manipulating the suffering of the people to create an image of a brutal dictator starving his people. What is never mentioned are the unilateral sanctions, illegal according to international law, that have cost Venezuela billions of dollars since 2015.The international corporate media speak of the government blocking U.S. “humanitarian aid,” but they do not mention that even the United Nations and the Red Cross rejected that aid as a political ploy. They also fail to mention that Venezuela is already receiving aid from its allies, and that it is even working with European countries to receive technical aid.In truth, there is already a war on Venezuela, but it is an economic one, rather than a military one. The unilateral sanctions and the financial blockade Washington imposed are the main cause of continuing economic troubles. Therefore the U.S. is actually responsible for whatever death and suffering it is using to justify its actions.The Venezuelan people’s resistance was able to put a break on the worst plans of the imperialists. On top of that, thousands of people across the world mobilized on Feb. 23 in solidarity demonstrations, showing the potential of a global solidarity movement. But the struggle is far from over, and it will be necessary to continue mobilizing and organizing to end the economic war while preventing the military one.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

She wasn’t taking any chances.(By the way. Curse is a noun. Cuss is a verb. I need not stand corrected on that.)The number 13 didn’t cause me any night’s sleep but I humored Mama.But she wasn’t superstitious, she said. “It’s just the way I was brought up.” The word triskaidekaphobia was not in my vocabulary.It was not in Mama’s either.But it defined Mama’s fear. She was just as cautious about the number 13 as she was fearful of the omen of a black cat crossing her path.She would turn the car around and go a mile out of the way if a black cat crossed in the road in front of us.“Mama, don’t turn around. Just cuss the cat,” I’d say. My own upbringing began to surface when I went to college. With all the higher learning that was being bestowed upon me, I couldn’t understand why I was getting this uneasy feeling about the number 13. It started popping up everywhere.My text books were $13.62. My change was 13 cents. The time was 13 after. The scripture in Sunday morning church was Mark Chapter 13 verses 13-20. The closing song was page 213. I started to get paranoid. Then I started to get worried. A black cat crossed in front of me, and I didn’t even think about cussing. I just turned around.This went on for weeks, 13 appeared at every possible juncture.I was teaching school in DeFuniak Springs and, driving home that Friday, January 12, every time I looked at the odometer, 13 stared me in the face. It was 13 after 5 when I arrived home and it was flooding rain.My grandmother, Mommie, lived just across the road and normally she would have come over after supper but the rain kept her at home.I went out that night to the picture show with friends. My last thought before I went to bed was that I would go see Mommie the first thing the next morning.In still, eerie quietness of the wee hours of the morning, my granddaddy’s panicked voice woke me. He was calling to Mama and Daddy from outside their bedroom window.“Mother’s had a heart attack! She’s on the floor and I can’t get her up!”I heard Daddy’s feet hit the floor and Mama cry out.I grabbed my coat and pulled it on and ran barefooted out the door behind Daddy.When I got to the bedroom, Pop and Daddy were kneeling down by Mommie.“She’s gone,” Pop sobbed. “Mother’s gone.”Together, we lifted her onto the bed.My grandmother was dead.Daddy and Pop knelt beside the bed, holding Mommie and crying.I just stood there. Too hurt to even cry.It was February 13, 1965.I had never known death before. Not personally. Not like that.It was a difficult time for all of us.My cousin Jimmy and I sat on the steps to the upstairs where, as children, we slid down the banister, climbed the outside rail and played rock school.Until that day, it had been a fun place. That day, it was the saddest place in the world.Jimmy said things would never be the same again. We both cried.He was right.We had lost the matriarch of our family and things were never quite the same.Back then, when someone died, the body was brought home.Mommie was laid up in the dining room and flowers filled the room and flowed into the living room. As hard as it was, there was something comforting about her being there – at home.Some friends sat up with Mommie that night.I remember looking out our kitchen window and thinking that would be the last night that Mommie would be at home. I stood there and cried.She was buried on February 14, Daddy’s birthday.Standing there at the graveside on that cold winter day, I knew that nothing would ever be the same again.And I cussed the number 13.

Stratigraphy of Antarctic late Cenozoic pectinid-bearing deposits

first_imgAntarctic late Cenozoic pectinid-bearing sedimentary strata are chiefly confined to localities in the northern part of the Antarctic Peninsula, in the McMurdo Sound area, and Marine Plain, East Antarctica. Ages of these deposits range from Oligocene to Holocene. Chlamys-like scallops, which are absent from today’s Southern Ocean, thrived in Antarctic waters during both glacial and interglacial episodes, but disappeared during the Late Pliocene. Their extinction is believed to result from the combined effects of increased carbonate solubility, habitat loss and limitations in food availability, associated with major cooling.last_img read more
