Rev. Kay Goldsworthy, bishop of Gippsland, has been elected archbishop of Perth after an extensive eight-month selection process and has the honour of being the first woman elected in Australia to the role of archbishop.The Archbishop Election Committee of 10 lay people and 10 priests considered candidates from around the world, electing a candidate who has served with distinction for almost a decade as a Bishop in the Australian Church.The administrator of the Anglican Diocese of Perth, the Rt. Rev. Kate Wilmot, welcomed the election of Goldsworthy, commending her commitment and significant experience.“The archbishop-elect has fulfilled her ministry for more than three decades in three Australian Dioceses and brings a breadth and depth of wisdom and an ability to collaborate with diverse members of the Church community,” Wilmot said.“Bishop Kay was one of the first women ordained to the priesthood in St George’s Cathedral in 1992 by Archbishop Peter Carnley and in 2008 she was consecrated as the first woman Bishop in the Anglican Church of Australia by Archbishop Roger Herft,” Wilmot said.“Bishop Kay has a wealth of diocesan, national and international experience, including being a long-standing member of General Synod and a member of the international Anglican Consultative Council. The Archbishop-elect is well known in Perth and has displayed excellent leadership and hospitality across the Perth community. We are very much looking forward to welcoming Bishop Kay and her husband Jeri James back to the Perth community.”The installation of the eighth archbishop of Perth, and metropolitan of the Province of Western Australia will take place in St. George’s Cathedral, Perth, Feb. 10, 2018.

Olivia Celine Pheonix says: Featured Events Press Release Service [World Council of Churches] As the 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women was underway through this week in New York City, the Rev. Terrie Robinson encouraged faith leaders to see their positive role in speaking out for gender justice in their communities.When it comes to living and working with a sense of justice, “faith leaders and faith groups – at least where they are adequately equipped – have huge potential,” she said.As co-chair of Side by Side, a faith movement for gender justice, Robinson believes that faith leaders have great power to help people live with equality and dignity. “There is a faith imperative for gender justice,” she said. “People still listen to faith leaders. Governments still listen to faith leaders.”Speaking as part of a panel on March 15, Robinson highlighted some of the strides faith leaders have made in helping people to better lives. “In recent years we’ve seen how faith leaders can dismantle the stigma around HIV and AIDS. We have seen faith leaders lead communities in letting go of centuries-old practices that led to the spread of ebola.”When it comes to gender justice, Robinson acknowledged the collective church has, at times, oppressed and discriminated against women. “We’ve gotten it wrong plenty of times,” she said. “But we can reclaim our sacred texts and reclaim our job. Faith leaders can be agents of change in their communities.”Read the full article here.

Everyone involved in this issue must understand hat God ‘s Image is. Doe’s this mean we physically look like GOD ? No of course not. It is an image is of a spiritual nature. We must remember that GOD’s word show’s us how accept each other. Jesus said you must love one another as yourself-for no man/woman has ever hated his own flesh..

MeccaBingo.com, the current sponsor of rugby league team Wigan Warriors, is donating the shirt sponsorship for the team’s match against the French team the Catalan Dragons to Whizz-Kidz, its official charity partner.Under French advertising legislation gaming brands such as MeccaBingo.com are prohibited from advertising. The decision was taken not to resell the shirt sponsorship for the match and instead donate the opportunity to a charity.Whizz-Kidz thus becomes the first charity to ‘sponsor’ the main shirts of a Super League club. In addition to the publicity gained from the sponsorship, the shirts will be auctioned after the match: with only 40 shirts produced, it is expected that fans will be prepared to pay high sums for them.The shirts will be auctioned off via the club website, eBay and other fundraising channels.As part of the ongoing ‘Mecca Wheel Difference’ campaign, Mecca clubs across the UK raised over £286,000 in 2008.Mick Hogan, Chief Executive of Wigan Warriors, said: “We are delighted that we can promote the Whizz-Kidz charity on our shirts for Monday’s game at Catalans Dragons. The charity does some wonderful work and the Whizz-Kidz name will be seen by a big television audience as the game is being shown live on Sky Sports. It is a great idea and money will also be raised by the auctioning of these one off shirts.”www.whizz-kidz.org.uk Tagged with: corporate About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

November 12, 2020 Find out more to go further Help by sharing this information ZimbabweAfrica Reporters Without Borders has written to Tomás Salomão, the executive secretary of the Southern African Development Community, on the eve of a SADC meeting in Maputo on the situation in Zimbabwe. Voicing concern about the impact of the Zimbabwean government’s internal crisis on the ability of journalists to work freely and the reemergence of an independent press, Reporters Without Borders urges the SADC and the leaders of Mozambique, Swaziland and Zambia to spare no effort to help the government emerge from the current deadlock.Mr. Tomaz SalomaoExecutive SecretarySouthern African Development CommunityGaborone – BotswanaParis, 4 November 2009Dear Executive Secretary,On the eve of the SADC summit that you will be chairing in Maputo on the situation in Zimbabwe, Reporters Without Borders, an international press freedom organisation, would like to draw your attention to the terrible consequences that political deadlock in Zimbabwe could have on the work of the news media.An increase in tension in the past three weeks between President Robert Mugabe’s ZANU-PF and Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) has already had a negative impact on the state of press freedom and could lead to serious reversals.An Al Jazeera TV crew was detained for several hours at the president’s office on 20 October, when the prime minister boycotted a cabinet meeting for the first time. Three days later, the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation and several state-owned newspapers received orders from information minister Webster Shamu to stop covering the activities of government ministers who are MDC members.Finally, a climate of fear has taken hold within the journalistic community as a result of recent arrests of civil society members.Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe Media Council (ZMC), a new entity that is supposed to issue licences to newspapers and thereby facilitate the independent press’s rebirth, is currently unable to function. Some sources say that, after long and delicate negotiations, the president and prime minister reached agreement on the ZMC’s nine members but they have not yet been appointed and may not be if the crisis within the government continues.An improvement in the ability of journalists to work freely and the reemergence of an independent press in Zimbabwe depend very closely on the national unity government’s ability to function properly. Given the current tension between the two sides, we think regional mediation and the SADC’s role will be decisive. We therefore urge you and the leaders of Mozambique, Swaziland and Zambia to spare no effort to help the government emerge from the current deadlock.We trust you will give this request your careful consideration.Sincerely,Jean-François JulliardSecretary-General Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono denied bail Organisation September 1, 2020 Find out more News Reports The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa RSF_en November 27, 2020 Find out more November 4, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Improvement in press freedom depends on national unity government’s ability to function properly ZimbabweAfrica Receive email alerts Zimbabwean court must free imprisoned journalist who is unwell News Follow the news on Zimbabwe News

WTVN/ABC News(FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.) — A Fort Bragg soldier who mysteriously vanished one week ago has now been found and reunited with his family, local police said this morning.Sgt. Carl Seeman, 25, was found in Fayetteville, North Carolina, early this morning, Fayetteville police said.He was not injured and had left on his own accord, Fayetteville police spokesperson Asia Cannon said. The police department said it was not releasing any more information.Seeman had been reported missing on March 25 by a fellow soldier, Fayetteville Police spokesman Sgt. Shawn Strepay said last week.Seeman’s car was found at a local Wal-Mart last week, Strepay said. His wallet and keys were missing, his mother, Jennifer Seeman, said, but his cellphone was in the car. Two days after her oldest child was reported missing, Jennifer Seeman drove down from Rochester, New York, with her husband, father and brother to search for him.“The panic comes and goes,” Jennifer Seeman told ABC News on Friday. “I feel like we’re not at panic when someone reaches out to me and says, ‘I might have seen him here.’ But the panic is real. And it hurts.”She continued, “The only thing that we have are just leads from people who might have seen him. Our leads have turned up nothing. Right now we’re at a dead end and we’re just trying to come up with our next plan. We plan on staying down here as long as we need to until something pops up, until something happens.” Carl Seeman is a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg officials said.Jennifer Seeman said he always wanted to be in the Army and enlisted his senior year of high school.Carl Seeman has served in the Army since 2011 and has been with the 82nd Airborne Division since 2015, Fort Bragg said. He had one combat deployment to Afghanistan in 2012.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A New Yorker’s daily exposure to the animal kingdom consists of mainly pigeons and rats, so perhaps a mistake like Thursday’s can be forgiven.It was just before 8 a.m. when police said several callers to 911 reported spotting a tiger in the street near West 162 Street and St. Nicholas Avenue in the Washington Heights neighborhood.The NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit was called but the animal that police safely caught turned out to be a large raccoon.Animal Care Centers of New York City took custody of the raccoon from the NYPD and put it down. The law requires it.“The raccoon was brought into our facility and was euthanized as required by law for all vector species animals brought into the shelter,” ACC said in a statement. “Raccoons, bats and skunks are classified as a rabies vector species, which means it’s an animal that can carry and transmit rabies.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Here we report the measurement of the comprehensive isotopic composition (δ15N, Δ17O and δ18O) of nitrate at the air–snow interface at Dome C, Antarctica (DC, 75°06′ S, 123°19′ E), and in snow pits along a transect across the East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS) between 66° S and 78° S. In most of the snow pits, nitrate loss (either by physical release or UV photolysis of nitrate) is observed and fractionation constants associated are calculated. Nitrate collected from snow pits on the plateau (snow accumulation rate below 50 kg m−2 a−1) displays average fractionation constants of (−59±10) ‰, (+2.0±1.0) ‰ and (+8.7±2.4)‰ for δ15N, Δ17O and δ18O, respectively. In contrast, snow pits sampled on the coast show distinct isotopic signatures with average fractionation constants of (−16±14) ‰, (−0.2±1.5) ‰ and (+3.1±5.8) ‰, for δ15N, Δ17O and δ18O, respectively. Our observations corroborate that photolysis (associated with a 15N / 14N fractionation constant of the order of –48 ‰ according to Frey et al. (2009) is the dominant nitrate loss process on the East Antarctic Plateau, while on the coast the loss is less pronounced and could involve both physical release and photochemical processes. Year-round isotopic measurements at DC show a~close relationship between the Δ17O of atmospheric nitrate and Δ17O of nitrate in skin layer snow, suggesting a photolytically driven isotopic equilibrium imposed by nitrate recycling at this interface. Atmospheric nitrate deposition may lead to fractionation of the nitrogen isotopes and explain the almost constant shift of the order of 25 ‰ between the δ15N values in the atmospheric and skin layer nitrate at DC. Asymptotic δ15N(NO3−) values calculated for each snow pit are found to be correlated with the inverse of the snow accumulation rate (ln(δ15N as. + 1) = (5.76±0.47) ċ (kg m−2 a−1/ A) + (0.01±0.02)), confirming the strong relationship between the snow accumulation rate and the degree of isotopic fractionation, consistent with previous observations by Freyer et al. (1996). Asymptotic Δ17O(NO3−) values on the plateau are smaller than the values found in the skin layer most likely due to oxygen isotope exchange between the nitrate photoproducts and water molecules from the surrounding ice. However, the apparent fractionation in Δ17O is small, thus allowing the preservation of a portion of the atmospheric signal.
