Marshall announced July 19 that he would retire at the end of this year.In a letter to the diocesan Standing Committee, he said that he would turn over ecclesiastical authority for the diocese to the Standing Committee on Aug. 1, at which time he will begin vacation. Beginning in September, he will be on sabbatical leave for the rest of the year.“It was my long-held intention to serve you as long as the canons permit,” Marshall wrote in his letter. “Life contains surprises, however. A number of circumstances and conversations have made it very for me to continue as bishop of a diocese that I have come to love with all my heart. I will resign for the canonical reasons of ‘advanced age’ as of December 31 of this year.”Marshall, who will turn 66 on July 25, began serving the diocese as bishop in 1996. He could have served until age 72, according to Article II, Section 9 of the church’s Constitution. The bishop’s citing of ‘advanced age’ is referenced in Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution.The Rev. Canon Andrew T. Gerns, rector, Trinity Episcopal Church in Easton, Pennsylvania and president of the Blehem Standing Committee, wrote in a letter to the diocese the day after Marshall’s announcement that the news “means that we as a diocesan community will begin our own process of listening for God and each other as we discern God’s will and together decide how we will act on it. There are many questions and there is much to do.”The full diocesan press release is here.

250,000 give up on home ownership

first_img250,000 non-homeowners have given up on the dream of owning their own property in the past year alone, says the 2017 Homeowners Survey. This annual study, conducted by the HomeOwners Alliance and BLP Insurance into the concerns, views and issues affecting British homeowners and aspiring homeowners, found that for the first time in five years, there has been a drop in the number of non-homeowners who aspire to own.In 2013, 65 per cent of non-homeowners aspired to homeownership, with this number increasing every year and peaking at 73 per cent in 2016. But this year, the numbers have fallen for the first time, back to 71 per cent. That’s around 253,166 people across the country who have given up on ownership in the past 12 months. The stats mirror the rise of the government’s flagship Help to Buy programme launched in 2013 and is now receding with the cancellation of the mortgage guarantee part of the scheme in 2016.Among aspiring first-time buyers, 86 per cent say house prices are their most serious concern (up three per cent in the past year), with 85 per cent citing saving for a deposit as a serious problem (up one per cent) and 80 per cent worried about availability of homes (up two per cent).homeowners home ownership non-homeowners research July 3, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Containerships’ second LNG-fueled vessel called at Malta on its maiden voyage

first_imgContainerships Polar; Image courtesy of Malta Freeport TerminalContainerships’ LNG-powered container vessel, the Containerships Polar, has made a call at the Malta Freeport Terminal during its maiden voyage from Asia to Rotterdam.The Containerships Polar is the second in a series of four LNG-fuelled vessels put into service by Containerships, a CMA CGM unit. The company took delivery of its first LNG-powered container vessel, Containerships Nord, in December 2018.The 1,400 TEU vessels are being built at Wenchong Shipyard in China.Malta Freeport Terminals CEO Alex Montebello said: “Malta Freeport […] supports CMA CGM’s initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint of its vessels.”“CMA CGM, one of Malta Freeport’s shareholders, […] has implemented numerous initiatives to make its fleet more eco-responsible. By 2022, the group will have taken delivery of 20 vessels powered by LNG.”This is in line with the company’s commitment to reduce its carbon footprint. CMA CGM has already achieved a 50 percent reduction in CO2 emissions per container transported per kilometer between 2005 and 2015.It has achieved a further 17 percent reduction between 2015 and 2018, in line with its 2025 objective of -30 percent.In 2019, CMA CGM also became the first shipping company in the world to test a biofuel oil on board one of its container ships.It is worth reminding that the company made a decision towards the end of 2017 to equip nine of its 22,000 TEU containerships with engines running on liquefied natural gas. CMA CGM chose Winterthur Gas & Diesel’s 12-cylinder X92DF dual-fuel low-speed engine to power the nine newbuilds. LNG World News Stafflast_img read more

Sports Ministry Promises Support for Bobsled & Skeleton Athletes

first_imgThe Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports will give support to the Bobsled and Skeleton Federation of Nigeria whose athletes recently qualified for the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, made the statement while eulogising the President of the federation, Chief Solomon Ogba, under whose guidance and efforts, the Bobsled and Skeleton Federation was established.He thanked Chief Ogba for painstakingly ensuring the qualification of the athletes, praising the trio of Seun Adigun, Ngozi Onwumere and Akuoma Omeoga for qualifying even without access to proper training equipment for the Winter Olympics and making Nigeria the first African team to qualify for the event. “It is a great honour not only for the athletes but for our country Nigeria, the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the new federation. I want to thank the President of the Bobsled and Skeleton Federation of Nigeria Chief Ogba for single handedly driving this project and for enabling the funding, training and the emergence of Nigeria to become the first African country to qualify for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea.”He urged other federations to emulate the Bobsled and Skeleton Federation of Nigeria to seek innovative ways to ensure other means of financial and training obligations to athletes ahead of the Commonwealth Games and other international competitions next year.Dalung however stated that if the National Assembly approves an upward review of its budgetary allocation to the ministry, it will consider grants to the BSFN to participate at the Winter Games.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Knysna gets crafty ahead of World Cup

first_img1 March 2010 With teams and fans alike expected in and around the Knysna area during the 2010 Fifa World Cup™, the coastal town is preparing for a major influx of tourists to hit its picturesque shores. Knysna, situated along the scenic Garden Route on South Africa’s south-east coast, aims ensure that the benefits of hosting the World Cup spill over into its local communities, in particular local crafters. Knysna Tourism, with the assistance of the Cape Craft and Design Institute (CCDI), have taken this cause on board. Knysna Tourism chief executive officer Shaun Van Eck says the World Cup represents potential economic growth for all sectors of the community. “We have a variety of craft markets overflowing with talent, and we have to ensure that the local community, from which this talent originates, also benefits from the 2010 festivities,” says Van Eck. To ensure this happens, Knysna Tourism is facilitating a series of workshops targeted at local crafters looking to diversify their skills. The first workshop, presented by Craig Carbutt, Rural Outreach Officer of the CCDI, was themed around craft awareness. It focused on the use of official trademarks relating to the tournament. Van Eck explained that by educating the crafters in these restrictions, they hope to help them to create pieces that they can exhibit and sell during the tournament without contravening any regulations. Local crafters, including Shirley Keyser, left the trademark workshop inspired and confident that they could create products that would interest football fans without infringing on any restrictions. “Although I was initially nervous about what I could and couldn’t produce for the event, after the workshop I felt inspired and confident that my business would directly benefit from the World Cup,” says Keyser. The awareness workshop also provided crafters with information on the tastes of the international tourists they can expect to encounter during the event. Carbutt says the crafters were given tips and hints on the buying behaviour of consumers. For example, the CCDI recommended that crafters look at innovative ways of incorporating participating countries’ flags, team colours and badges into their craft designs. Keyser, who is currently devising creative ways of including the Danish flag in her craft, says since the workshop she has begun looking at her designs in new ways. “As a result, I’ve seen an increase in orders,” says Keyser. Local crafter Heather Boyle, who currently supplies 26 craft shops around the country, is also expecting more orders during the event. “Our product, the Africa Time Clock, should meet the tastes of international tourists, and we anticipate that as our stockists get more feet through the door during the World Cup, we’ll see our orders escalate,” she says.

How To Find A Mentor For Your Startup

first_imgRelated Posts My most important mentor when I first got started in online marketing was John Reese through his blog posts, email newsletter and Traffic Secrets course. I’ve only had the privilege to meet him once, but I felt like I knew him personally because I absorbed all he taught. He complimented me for being one of the very few people who actually implemented what I learned. This led to fast results, and I give him some credit for helping me eventually quit my job and go out on my own.Another mentor has been my business coach, Jeff Miles. Jeff lives in Australia but has flown halfway around the world six times to spend time with me. We get together and talk for hours. He has helped me focus on implementing new business strategies and keeps me accountable in balancing work and family relationships. —Joe Barton, Barton PublishingYe Olde Email Blast Although mentors are traditionally unpaid, one of our most important advisors is our business coach Marla Tabaka. My co-founder and I connected with her through an organization called Count Me In. She specializes in helping women-owned startups grow their companies to the $1 million revenue mark and beyond.When we first started working with Marla, we didn’t know much about running a business. In the past two years, she’s helped up go from a two-person company to a six-person, multi-million dollar international entertainment company. She’s advised us every step of the way — from our legal team to our accountant to our employees. She’s part mentor, part coach and part cheerleader. I think a business coach is one of the most important investments a young entrepreneur can make. —Brittany Hodak, ‘ZinePak In the initial year of our firm, I was mentored by a man named John Beck who had been a partner at a very successful outsourced accounting/CFO firm for several years before starting his own firm. He was extremely valuable for me as a mentor. He gave me advice, answered questions and provided me with input when I faced problems. Because his experience was in my industry and because he had been so successful, he served as a fantastic resource and guide. —David Ehrenberg, Early Growth Financial ServicesThe Not-So-Cold Call Leeward Bean has been a huge help to me and my organization. I know without his advice I would not be where I am today with my business. I saw an article about him and his business in the Tampa Bay Business Journal. After reading the article, I reached out to him through LinkedIn and asked him if I could take him to lunch. We hit it off. His guidance has been irreplaceable. We usually meet at least once a quarter, depending on what I have going on in the business. He is always there to help me and provide guidance. —Alex Chamberlain, EZFingerPrintsLet The Money Talk One of my most important mentors is Alex Welch. He was the CEO and founder of Photobucket, which he sold to News Corporation for around $500 million in 2007. One of my investors introduced us, and ever since, he has made himself very available when needed. He has given great advice that has had a direct impact on how I run my business. At the end of the day, a great mentor is someone who listens to what you’re doing, is able to provide very real advice and has some ideas as to what the step-by-step process should be. Alex is one of those types of mentors (along with a few others I have). —Scott Ferreira, MySocialCloudDo As They Say AI Will Empower Leaders, Not Replace Them When I was first getting into professional speaking, I scoured the Internet for other speakers, trying to see who was the most respected within my niche and held personal values that were close to my own. Josh Shipp was a name that kept coming from my searches and conversations with young speakers.Even though I was still in high school, I reached out to him via a cold email in response to a blog post he had written — trying to provide him with a teen perspective that he could use to help parents. We ended up having a phone call, and I flew up to San Francisco later that year to meet with him and a team of other speakers. For the last few years, Josh has been instrumental in helping me build my youth speaking business while also providing me with insights from his experiences. —Michael Costigan, Youth Leadership SpecialistB2B Ties Tags:#startups Trey Ratcliff is considered to be the king of HDR photography.

We’ve since had a Google Hangout on his popular weekly show, connected over email and have been in great communication. —Angela Pan, Angela B Pan PhotographyInvestor Introduction The Scottish businessman Brian Kennedy has been my biggest mentor outside of Yodle’s leaders and my family. I met him through business, and we quickly built a relationship outside of Yodle. He has provided me with some of the most unique and powerful business and life advice I have ever received. Finding people that possess both wisdom and experience should be the ultimate goal when finding a mentor. —John Berkowitz, YodlePay Them! Most smart founders have more than a few influential mentors helping support them behind the scenes, formally or informally.

10 months agoNewcastle supporters pen open letter to Ashley for transfer funds

first_imgNewcastle supporters pen open letter to Ashley for transfer fundsby Ansser Sadiq10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveA group of Newcastle supporters’ organisations have written an open letter to owner Mike Ashley, urging him to invest in players this month.Toon are 15th on the Premier League table, and fans are fearful the club will be relegated should Ashley chose not to allocate money for transfers during the current transfer window.The letter read in part: “Dear Mike Ashley. We are writing to urge you to do what is right for Newcastle United this month and we hope, for a change, you are willing to listen to us and act accordingly.”This is a critical month for the football club, both in terms of your stated desire to sell and the need to strengthen the squad, as repeatedly requested by the manager Rafa Benitez.”We are hoping you see the sense in striving to do both, but if you cannot find a suitable buyer, then it is imperative that you still release the funds needed to improve the squad.”To fail to do so, would seem both reckless and foolish given the damage you know relegation will do. The ongoing takeover cannot be used an excuse not to spend money in the January transfer window.”If you refuse to spend money this month, the risk of relegation not only increases, it will also mean the manager will not sign the new contract you have offered to him.”You have repeatedly said that you want Benitez to stay, so do the things needed to make sure that happens. In short, back him and give him what he needs in this window.”I know we have had a difficult relationship in the past, but at this point, we want to look forward, not backwards. Please do what is right this month.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorAnsser SadiqShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
