Prince Philip continually demonstrated his unfailing support and unstinting loyalty to Her Majesty the Queen for 73 years.“He consistently put the interests of others ahead of his own and, in so doing, provided an outstanding example of Christian service. During his naval career, in which he served with distinction in the Second World War, he won the respect of his peers as an outstanding officer.“On the occasions when I met him, I was always struck by his obvious joy at life, his inquiring mind and his ability to communicate to people from every background and walk of life. He was a master at putting people at their ease and making them feel special.“The legacy he leaves is enormous. The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, which he founded in 1956, has inspired generations of young people to help others and instilled in them a vision for citizenship and a desire to serve their communities. His work with countless charities and organizations reflected his wide-ranging global interests in topics including wildlife, sport, design, engineering and interfaith dialogue.“In his powerful advocacy for conservation his was a prophetic voice for over half a century, as he brought people from around the world to a new concern and commitment to action for the future of our planet.“As we recover and rebuild after the terrible trial of the coronavirus pandemic, we will need fortitude and a deep sense of commitment to serving others. Throughout his life Prince Philip displayed those qualities in abundance, and I pray that we can take inspiration from his example.“I also join many people in giving thanks for the marriage of Her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip, and for their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Theirs was a marriage grounded in friendship and mutual respect and sustained by shared faith in Christ.“I pray that God will comfort Her Majesty and the rest of the Royal Family at this time. May His Royal Highness rest in peace and rise in glory.” Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Rector Albany, NY Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ
The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Lake Apopka pump station construction project moves forwardOne of the pump stations located within the St. Johns River Water Management District’s Lake Apopka North Shore is scheduled for an overhaul. The governing board recently approved the project, which has an estimated budget of $350,000.The Duda Pump Station is named for the farm that previously occupied the land.“Each project initiated at Lake Apopka is a strategic step toward restoring the lake’s ecosystem,” said St. Johns River Water Management District Executive Director Dr. Ann Shortelle. “This project specifically allows us to realize new efficiencies in our work on the Lake Apopka North Shore requiring water management and satisfy our larger goal of improved water quality at Lake Apopka.”The Lake Apopka Duda Pump Station construction project, named for the farm that previously occupied the land that houses the pumps, will include replacement of two diesel pumps with two district-owned electric pumps, installation of a power line to the pumps and an overflow weir. Pump stations allow the district to manage the surrounding wetlands’ water levels.The existing, manually operated, diesel system requires extensive effort to operate and can only be operated during the day when district staff are present to start, shut off, fuel and monitor the operation. This limits the ability to operate the system and requires significant staffing. Additionally, this project removes the diesel exhaust created by the existing pumps and associated fuel storage tank.Work will take place near the Lake Apopka Loop Trail, an 18-mile non-motorized recreational trail. The trail will remain open during construction. Work is expected to be complete in early 2017.

El Salvador 2012 Periscopio House / PRAUD Architects: PRAUD Year Completion year of this architecture project Periscopio House / PRAUDSave this projectSavePeriscopio House / PRAUD Save this picture!Courtesy of PRAUD+ 19 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/304306/periscopio-house-praud Clipboard Save this picture!Courtesy of PRAUDText description provided by the architects. Although it has already been almost 20 years since El Salvador suffered from a civil war, the understanding of the urban space and architecture has been strongly molded by the concept of security and enclosure that is so engraved in the psyche of its citizens, be it in the city as much as in rural areas. With this in mind we work in shaping the idea of the MODERNIST FORTRESS. This term, “the modernist fortress”, is not only literal in the sense of creating an enclosed environment but also in the sense of trying to escape from the fortitude of modernism. Save this picture!Courtesy of PRAUDOur strategy is to treat the typology of the project as three independent masses that would enclose the required program while creating a third space and an open connection towards the nature. The aim of the project is to allow open events to occur between the inside and the outside by creating different builtscapes without segregating the possibilities of program. The interior living area is opened as a linear connection to dinning and kitchen within a double height. Save this picture!Courtesy of PRAUDSimilarly, the exterior has the linear connection of cooking, eating and lounging by the pool that connects back to the interior. This generates the possibility of a looping action and interaction between the inside activities and outdoor ones. Although the horizontal windows and columns of the south facade reminisce a modernist logic, the counter facades reminds us of a battle between conteporanism and modernism being fought through the massing and not a plan strategy. Local methods of construction, CMU and concrete are also utilized in order to create a monumental permanence of the mass within nature.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessmodeLab Algorithmic Design in GrasshopperArticlesBloomberg Announces Plan For Downtown BrooklynArticles Share “COPY” Year: “COPY” Projects ArchDaily CopyAbout this officePRAUDOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesEl SalvadorPublished on December 11, 2012Cite: “Periscopio House / PRAUD” 11 Dec 2012.

Howard Lake | 6 May 2015 | News “Christian Aid is very proud of its amazing volunteers who go door-to-door collecting money for some of the world poorest communities. But as the way we live our life changes, more people living in flats and working longer hours, it makes it more difficult to reach everyone in just one week.“We may be marking our 70th anniversary this year but like all charities we need to move with the times and embrace new technologies in order to make it easier for people with busy lives to donate at a time convenient to them. PowaTag has great potential for the charity sector and we are delighted to be able to broadcast a world first with this innovative new advert.” Matched givingPowa Technologies will match fund the first £10,000 donated to Christian Aid using the app. In addition it will cover all the operational costs of using the system incurred by Christian Aid.Dan Wagner, founder and CEO of Powa Technologies, said:“Individuals feel a strong urge to get involved and donate when they see a TV appeal, but every second that goes by reduces the chance that a donation will be completed, especially if they need to fill in long forms. PowaTag gives them the ability to donate instantly with the emotional impact of the appeal still fresh in their mind. – I know I’d give more if it was this easy, and I’m sure this is true for millions of others. Christian Aid is the first to adopt what we hope to establish as a new standard in charity support.”Eleanor Ledesma added:“We are now looking at ways that we can incorporate the use of PowaTag not only into our fundraising but also our vitally important campaigns.” 67 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The three organisations are calling for the Government to:Increase the permissible amount of ticket sales for a single draw from £4 million to £10 million. 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. Increase prize values from £25,000 to £100,000 (for lotteries with less than £250,000 in the draw). 151 total views, 1 views today Increase the annual income cap on any society lottery from £10 million to £100 million. Allow the aggregation of the 20% minimum charity contribution rule over an extended period for newly created lotteries, as they have start-up costs in their early years.According to the Lotteries Council, a government fear had been that reduced regulation could impact on sales of National Lottery tickets. However, it says, recent modelling by the Gambling Commission has shown that society lottery sales have had no significant impact on National Lottery sales, while a report published earlier this month by the all-party Public Accounts Committee said that the recent decline in National Lottery income during 2016-17 was attributed to factors relating to the management of the National Lottery and not to any competition from elsewhere.Speaking at last week’s Lotteries Council Annual Conference in Warwick, Bucci called on legislators to do more to help.She said:“Despite the growth of our sector over the past year it remains a large frustration that we could be achieving even more for charities and good causes if it were not for the out-dated law on society lotteries contained in the Gambling Act. We are the only fundraising sector with limits on the amount we can raise for good causes – something which does seem quite bizarre when we know so many good causes are in need of funds.” Advertisement Lotteries Council chief calls for faster reform of ‘outdated’ law Tagged with: Fundraising Lotteries Lotteries Melanie May | 23 April 2018 | News 152 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis14
printStudents and faculty members were invited to submit their photos to prompt discussion about differences, as part of Professor M. Francyne Huckaby’s women and gender studies event: Amplify.Huckaby held the event as part of her “delightful obligations” to the Women and Gender Studies Department since she won their annual Claudia V. Camp Faculty Research award in February 2017. The award is offered to faculty for their scholarship, research and creative activities, and requires the winner to hold two events. Amplify was Huckaby’s second event.Huckaby said she used the name Amplify because it focused on the different ways students could amplify their experiences with the rest of the world by using film and camera. Huckaby’s goal was to teach students and faculty about the participatory camera and how it can be used to share experiences.Students and faculty were encouraged to use photos from their own experiences as members of the TCU community and bring them to a place where common dialogue can be had to talk about different people’s experiences. The photos submitted were supposed to expressed strengths, concerns and intersectionality. Huckaby said she wanted these photos to reveal who we are, what we face and how we share our campus and the world around us.Once a photo was taken or formed, students were asked to hashtag the photo with #amplifyWGST, and then asked to meet at the TCU Contemporary Art Gallery to talk about the photos and what they signify.Students observed about 20 different photos, most of which dealt with feminism and oppression. The event had a tone of enlightenment as it opened students’ eyes to the different types of experiences other people have.Wilton Wright, a graduate assistant for the women and gender studies program, submitted a photo to bring up a conversation about the power of the TCU program.“I submitted it because it was like a crowd of over 200 people for a really famous feminist speaker so it was a really good to show that the women and gender studies program brings in a lot of people to TCU,” Wright said. “It’s a really important movement at TCU.” ReddIt Students react to the nutty squirrels on campus Twitter Sara Colberthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sara-colbert/ Twitter Linkedin ReddIt Welcome TCU Class of 2025 Facebook Paschal High School traded trash for cash to raise money for the band Sara Colberthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sara-colbert/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Voting for Mr. and Ms. TCU opens today Linkedin Sara Colberthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sara-colbert/ Paschal’s Future Business Leaders of America Club ready for Nationals + posts Previous articleHoroscope: October 8, 2017Next articleVolleyball battles for victory against Kansas State Sara Colbert RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Sara Colbert World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook Sara Colberthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sara-colbert/
