James F. Turrell, dean of the School of Theology at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, released the following statement March 18 in response to recent racial indent on campus. He also was one of eight Episcopal deans who issued a joint statement on the same day.I write in light of recent events at the University of the South that have been widely reported, among them vandalism directed at the Vice-Chancellor and his family and racial epithets hurled at an opposing team at an undergraduate athletics event last weekend.Racist behavior of any kind has no place in a community of learning, much less in a community of Christians. I state the obvious, but sometimes the obvious must be stated for the sake of clarity.The School of Theology has a responsibility to make its voice heard, to point out that because we are all made in the image and likeness of God, we cannot abide any behavior that communicates that any group of persons is “less than,” let alone the vile and racist language spoken last weekend. The behavior last Saturday disfigured the image of God in the perpetrators, and it disfigured this community as the Body of Christ.Events like this call all of us at the School of Theology to dismantle racist structures, to educate and inform ourselves and others, to speak out whenever we see or hear actions or words that devalue the children of God. We must work to restore this community.This will take time and effort, but the School of Theology is committed to this work.

Dylan Hartley facing potential ban after alleged headbutt against Saracens

first_imgWednesday May 27, 2015 Dylan Hartley facing potential ban after alleged headbutt against Saracens Dylan Hartley will appear before a RFU Disciplinary panel later today, charged with striking an opponent with the head in the Aviva Premiership semi final between Northampton Saints and Saracens. If found guilty, Hartley could jeopardise his position with England.Defending champions Saints lost 29-24, but the incident took place as flanker Tom Wood drove over to score. As you can see, Hartley was celebrating, then turned around and walked straight into opposition hooker, Jamie George, making contact with his head.A scuffle ensued and ref Greg Garner asked the TMO to bring it up on the big screen, but he was satisfied that there was nothing in it, so play continued. Hartley was later cited.Hartley has been suspended five times for various offences ranging from biting to gouging, to insulting a referee. All of that will play against him if found guilty at the hearing.The hearing will be held at the Coventry Holiday Inn on Wednesday 27th May at 7.15pm.View highlights from the matchUPDATE: Dylan Hartley has been suspended for four weeks.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

When working with designers, investors only talk about needs, not an architectural – interior style, so that architects can decide.

The second floor has three bedrooms, all with natural contact angles, depending on the location of each room. The buffer area right in the stairway becomes a common living corner upstairs. The bedroom is left on the 3rd floor, enough area.

Monitoring Mortgage Performance

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The health of a mortgage market depends largely on its delinquency rates. To evaluate the current mortgage market, CoreLogic’s  Loan Performance Insights report examined all stages of delinquency as well as transition rates that are indicative of the percent of mortgages moving from one stage of delinquency to the next.  The report found that the national 30 days or more delinquency rate for August was 4 percent, a slight drop in overall delinquency from 4.6 percent last year.  The share of mortgages that transitioned from current to 30-days past-due was 0.8 percent in August 2018, dropping by 0.1 percentage point from July 2017. Compared to last year,  in January 2007, the current-to-30-day transition rate was 1.2 percent and peaked in November 2008 at 2 percent, preceding the financial crisis. “Declines in delinquency rates are good news for America’s homeowners and mortgage lenders. However, risks that create loan default like natural disasters, over-valued markets and an eventual rise in unemployment remain in the market. CoreLogic Market Conditions Indicator data has identified more than one-third metropolitan areas are overvalued, putting them at risk of price declines and rising delinquencies if local job losses should occur,” said Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic. On a state by state basis, serious delinquency of 90 days or more past due including loans in foreclosure increased in Alaska while Florida maintained the same rate. The remaining states experienced a decrease in serious delinquency rates, the report indicated. Serious delinquency is defined as 90 days or more past due including loans in foreclosure.The report revealed a decline in serious delinquencies in 13 metros, while the rates remained the same in 18 other metros that were examined by CoreLogic.  The report points out that 30-plus delinquency rate, the most comprehensive measure of mortgage performance, is near a 10-year low. Mortgages that transitioned from current to 30-days past due was 0.8 percent in August 2018, down 0.1 percentage rate from 0.8 in August 2017. Compared to January 2007, just before the start of the financial crisis, the current-to-30-day transition rate was 1.2 percent and peaked in November 2008 at 2 percent. The report concluded that “continued improvement in mortgage performance bodes well for the health of the U.S. market in 20 About Author: Donna Joseph Share Save Tagged with: CoreLogic Foreclosures Frank Martell mortgage Serious Delinquency  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Donna Joseph is a Dallas-based writer who covers technology, HR best practices, and a mix of lifestyle topics.

Manhunt underway for driver who fatally struck 6-year-old girl, injured others

first_imgEvgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(MILWAUKEE) — Police in Milwaukee are searching for a driver who plowed through an intersection Thursday, hitting three children and killing one of them.The children, ages 4, 6, and 10, were crossing the street at around 5:30 p.m. when the driver sped through a red light, striking the children and causing a multi-car crash, according to police.The 6-year-old girl was killed at the scene. The 4-year-old girl and the 10-year-old boy were rushed to the hospital in serious condition, police said.The driver kept going but police described the vehicle of interest as a gray 2007-2009 Saturn Aura with tinted windows and front-end damage.The mother of one of the surviving children said the kids were walking with a teenager when they were hit.“It was a careless act. It was very careless of them, whoever it was, you know right or wrong. You know at the end of the day it was kids and whoever hit them they confirmed that they were kids before they even hit them, and they still took off,” Shanterika Rayford told ABC affiliate WISN-TV at the scene of the crash. “Whoever it was that did it, I want them to know that you really, you really hurt someone’s heart and you really hurt someone’s family.”“Wherever you are, if you’re watching this, if you do have a chance to see this, you are wrong. And I want you to know that you are wrong,” she added. “They were innocent kids. You’re very wrong.”She said she’s praying for them to recover but the outlook “doesn’t seem good” right now.“This is heartbreaking right now for us because they’re all small kids,” Rayford said. “The injuries and the impact that they endured, their bodies can’t hold up to it, you know, so right now we’re hoping for the best but it doesn’t seem good at all for either of them.”Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Milwaukee Police Department at ‪414-935-7360.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

College makes the grade with online administration system

first_img Previous Article Next Article Five years ago, Stroud College failed an Ofsted inspection, with the lack ofan HR system to monitor staff attendance cited as a key factor. In Septemberlast year, it was re-inspected, and the report highlighted personneladministration as one of the college’s strengths. The dramatic turnaround was masterminded by Nicky Wood, the newly-appointedpersonnel manager at the time, who knew the answer lay with implementing someform of HR software. “With 300 to 400 employees in the college and little or no informationon any of them, my role in HR was challenging to say the least,” sherecalls. “There were no processes in place, no standard terms andconditions, reporting information was non-existent, and recruitment was done byeach department, irrespective of headcount.” Wood was able to secure some of the recovery funding that the college hadbeen awarded to pay for her plans. Stroud College, which offers a range of academic and vocational courses andlearning programmes to meet the needs of local employers, chose HR softwaresupplier Computers in Personnel to install its new personnel and recruitmentadministration system. “They wanted a system to address an immediate need,” saysComputers in Personnel managing director, Chris Berry. The system ran on existing PCs and went live in 2000. The hardest part ofthe implementation, says Wood, was the data collection to populate the system.It was collected by her assistant, who had to work with every departmentmanager, key the information into the system, and then get it validated toensure accuracy, explains Wood. With the information held digitally, Wood took the opportunity to review andrenew HR practices and procedures, including terms and conditions, criminalrecord checks and teaching qualifications. The recruitment software allowed her to create a more structured and uniformapproach to authorising and advertising vacancies, and the college also beganto use the data more strategically. “On a monthly basis, we produce a selection of management reports,which are circulated to the board and senior management team,” explainsWood. “These cover a range of metrics that we need to monitor, such asheadcount, sickness absence, turnover, equal opportunities and vacancies. The managersin the college have now become reliant on the information we are able toprovide and are keen to have access to more.” The HR team’s ability to generate data and therefore benchmark its practiceswas one of the things that impressed the Ofsted inspectors during their lastvisit. “We’d worked for a number of educational establishments before and alsohad experience of generating the kind of returns needed to satisfy the variousfunding councils,” says Berry. After a lot of groundwork, the ease with which the college can extract dataon its people has made the system vital to Wood and her department’s operation.”It is an intrinsic and essential part of everything we do on aday-to-day basis, whether it is sending out a contract of employment, posting avacancy or reviewing a job description,” she says. “We make extensive use of the diary facility for key reminders, such asappraisal meetings and maternity entitlement, and rely on it to trigger theactivities we carry out on that day.” Comments are closed.

Bubba Wallace ‘really proud’ of NASCAR’s ban on Confederate flags

first_img Written by June 11, 2020 /Sports News – National Bubba Wallace ‘really proud’ of NASCAR’s ban on Confederate flags FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC NewsBy KELLY MCCARTHY and MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — American race car driver Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. said he’s “really proud” of NASCAR for “stepping up” and banning the Confederate flag from all its events. “I think this is the most crucial time,” Wallace, 26, said in an interview on ABC News’ Good Morning America Thursday. “Time is of the essence right now in the world that we’re in, in the nation that we’re in, to create change and create unity and come together and really try to be more inclusive.” Wallace, the only black driver in the Cup Series, NASCAR’s highest level, has been outspoken on racial issues in the sport and said he feels “very gracious” to have the support of fellow drivers who “are willing to stand up for what’s right.”NASCAR announced the ban on Wednesday night, just one day after Wallace called for action from the racing league to officially remove the Confederate flag, which has a long history of being flown at races on camper trailers, RVs, coolers and even seen on hats of fans since the sport’s inception.“That’s a symbol of hate and it brings back so many bad memories,” Wallace said. “There’s no good that comes with that flag, and that’s the message we’re trying to get across.”The move comes amid nationwide protests against racism and police brutality in the wake of the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old unarmed black man who died in Minneapolis police custody on May 25.Wallace wore a “Black Lives Matter” shirt and his No. 43 car was emblazoned with a #BlackLivesMatter hashtag at Wednesday night’s race at Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Virginia. “Last night was really special,” he said. “I sincerely thought that was the biggest race of my career just with everything going on in the world and how we were standing up.”The flag, also known as “stars and bars,” was used by the Confederacy after seceding from the Union in 1861 — prompting the American Civil War — in a bid to uphold slavery. Most arguments defending the flag, whether it be at sporting events or in state Capitols, have centered on it being about Southern pride and heritage as opposed to its Civil War ancestry. NASCAR and all of its teams are headquartered in North Carolina. While the sport has spread to race tracks across the country, it has always held close ties to the South. Some NASCAR fans have taken to social media to voice their anger over the ban, saying they will no longer attend races. Wallace said his message to them is: “It’s not about you.” “This is about our brothers and sisters that are suffering,” he added. “It’s about a group of people that we are trying to bring together and make this world a better place for.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
