RIP: The Rev. Donald Smith Armentrout

first_img Rector Albany, NY Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Bath, NC Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Smithfield, NC People, Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET [Episcopal News Service] The Rev. Donald Smith Armentrout, retired professor of church history and historical theology, the Charles Quintard professor of dogmatic theology, and director of the Advanced Degrees Program at the University of the South’s School of Theology in Sewanee, Tennessee, died March 30.The Liturgy of the Church in celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus and in memory of Armentrout will take place on April 3, at 3 p.m., in All Saints’ Chapel on the Sewanee campus.Armentrout, who joined the School of Theology faculty in 1967, retired on Dec. 31, 2008, after 42 years as a teacher and leader at the school. He and wife Sue Ellen Gray Armentrout, who survives him, stayed in Sewanee in their retirement.Armentrout graduated from Roanoke College in 1961; he was recognized as a Distinguished Alumnus in 1992 and received an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from his alma mater in 2007. He earned a Master of Divinity degree from Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in 1964.In 1972, he was ordained as a pastor in the Lutheran Church in America (now the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). He received his Ph.D. from Vanderbilt University in 1970 and has received an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from General Theological Seminary.Armentrout became an instructor in ecclesiastical history at Sewanee’s School of Theology in 1967, progressing to assistant professor, associate professor, and professor before being named Quintard professor of dogmatic theology in 1991. He was the director of the joint Doctor of Ministry program shared with Vanderbilt from 1974 to 1984 and then director of the Advanced Degrees Program. He became associate dean of academic affairs in 1989, and served twice as interim dean of the seminary.He has served as an editor of Synthesis: A Weekly Resource for Preaching and Worship in the Episcopal Tradition since 1988, as a member of the board of editors of the Sewanee Theological Review since 1991, and as a member of the Sewanee magazine’s editorial advisory committee.Armentrout exemplified the ecumenical movement, serving for 42 years as a Lutheran at a seminary preparing priests for the Episcopal Church, and becoming an eminent scholar in Episcopal Church history. His publications include The Quest for the Informed Priest: A History of the School of Theology (1979), A DuBose Reader: Selections from the Writings of William Porcher DuBose (1984), with Robert B. Slocum, Documents of Witness: A History of the Episcopal Church, 1782-1985 (1994), and also with Robert B. Slocum, An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church (1999).The Very Rev. William S. Stafford, dean emeritus of the School of Theology, said at the time of Armentrout’s retirement that by his scholarly work and teaching Armentrout had “shined light upon the history of the Episcopal Church as well as the church catholic. As pastor and preacher, his faith in Jesus Christ crucified and risen has deepened the ministries of many hundreds of graduates of the School of Theology. He has been more than a pillar of the School; he has been a wall to hold us up, and a window to let light in. No substitute for Don will ever be found, but we are glad that Sewanee gets to keep him and Sue for the coming years in the flexibility and freedom that retirement promises. We thank Don for his service, and we thank God for Don.” Curate Diocese of Nebraska April 2, 2013 at 1:32 pm With all of his titles and accolades, Rev. Dr. Donald Armentrout wanted us seminarians to call him “Don.” He did not need a title for us to know how special, how intelligent, and how important a person he was. Don was instrumental in my selecting Sewanee for my seminary training. As my Academic Dean and advisor, Don’s open door policy, his love for the seminarians, and always making time for us impressed me greatly. In the classroom his brilliant mind and humor made me eager to attend his classes. Don will be remembered as a friend and one of the most outstanding people I have ever had the privilege of knowing. Submit a Job Listing Rector Collierville, TN April 4, 2013 at 10:57 am Don was a great recruiter for the Advanced Degrees program with a welcoming presence for all manner of folk. He was possessed of an insightful mind and a sly sense of humor. Don gave himself in generous interchanges with others. I will miss him. RIP: The Rev.

The two-story brick building on the corner of West Broadway and N. Moore Street lies at the edge of the TriBeCa West Historic District, a neighborhood given landmark status in recognition of the history of manufacturing there. The 1870s-era structure itself was singled out for preservation on account of its distinctive corbelled brickwork, prominent location, unusual acute plan, low massing, and multitude of French- and double-hung windows.

The site was zoned for 14,000sf and an allowable 8 stories, but the Landmark status of the corner structure meant it could not be altered, and any new structure on the remaining portion of the site would be limited to 6-7 stories. By a developer’s standard, the site was badly encumbered. In an area increasingly populated by new and renovated condo towers, what could be done with this prominent and light-filled site that would respect its Landmarked status and complement the pedestrian-friendly streets while creating long-lasting value for its owners and the community? And could it be done without sacrificing the contemporary élan that attracted the owners to TCA’s work in the first place? Save this picture!© Paul Warchol PhotographyTurett and his team studied the problem closely with tax lawyers, zoning experts, and teams of preservationists, researching every aspect of the history of the site and its surroundings. By the time a design for a single-family home was presented to community groups and ultimately the Landmark Commission, it showed the design almost exactly as it stands today: a new six story structure attached to the renovated historic brick structure, fully integrated internally, each responsive to the scale and character of the block in its own way. The new tower uses muscular steel framing and composite fiber-cement panels to extend the high-relief and high-detail texture and industrial sensibility of surrounding cast iron and terra-cotta structures. The two-story jewel is painstakingly preserved on the outside, much of it rebuilt from scratch, brick-for-brick and detail-for-detail. Save this picture!© Paul Warchol PhotographyThe owner now lives in an 11,500 square-foot home with every amenity. At the second floor, the old and new buildings flow seamlessly into each other internally, forming an open-air courtyard, a huge open-plan living, dining and kitchen area and a media room. The roof of the two-story structure incorporates extensive irrigated roof gardens with structural skylights, flooding the living spaces below with light. Combining the hard edge sensibility of the tower with the softer textures of the historic structure became the guiding design principle inside: bent wood pickets and screens mix with blackened steel detailing throughout; deeply cleft stone complements highly polished wood, glass and tile; cutting-edge concealed lighting is interspersed with handcrafted artisanal fixtures. Save this picture!ground floor planEnvironmental control systems (sound, light, thermal comfort, shade, security, etc.) are fully integrated and discreet; the building envelope (a rainscreen approach) incorporates exceptional acoustic and thermal isolation; mechanical systems are designed for energy efficiency and ease of maintenance; daylighting and natural ventilation are prioritized throughout.

OC panel tackles ‘2020 in the Rearview’

first_imgSportsCollegeLocal NewsEducation Twitter Facebook Twitter Pinterest OC panel tackles ‘2020 in the Rearview’ Facebook WhatsAppcenter_img Odessa College Logo Taking 2020 in segments, a panel of educators, experts and citizens participated in a Coffee and Community Conversation called “2020 in the Rearview.” Moderator Jonathan Fuentes, Odessa College executive dean of academic partnerships and a political scientist by training, used a Los Angeles Times timeline published in December 2020 for reference. Along with Fuentes, participants were Kristine Flickinger, program director for the surgical technology program and associate professor of surgical technology, Naomi Chapman, social studies instructor, Eden Simmons, licensed professional counselor, Blair Roberts, senior research economist, Nikki Brown, OC Law Enforcement Academy coordinator. Fuentes said COVID-19 has killed nearly 400,000 people so far. He noted that the flu has killed 12,000 to 61,000 American citizens a year in the last 10 years. Flickinger said the vaccine will help us get to “herd immunity,” but 80 to 90 percent of the population would have to take it. “It’s going to take us a long time to roll that out and when we’re talking about getting people out back into society, back shopping it still is going to require social distancing and mask wearing because it’s not about the people who have had the vaccine; it’s going to be about the people who have not had the vaccine. There are still going to be people out there that can spread the virus. And washing your hands; it’s still going to be there in the forefront to get us back into society,” Flickinger said. Before the pandemic, Roberts said there was a movement toward more people working online and working at home. “This virus has just accelerated that. When we get over the virus, not everybody’s going to stay home and work,” Roberts said. “There’s going to be many more people who are. Restaurants and stores and colleges going through this are going to have plans in place and be much more able to deal with something like this in the future.” Simmons said people are experiencing a looming sense of uncertainty and students have been impacted by that. “If they were working a part-time job, which a lot of our students are, and as we know part time workers are usually the first to have hours cut or to be laid off; I’ve seen a lot of that in our students and also just kind of this looming feeling of uncertainty and that they’re going to school and investing time and money into these degrees and they want to be able to graduate and enter the workforce and have jobs available. So I think it’s really been difficult for them to tolerate that uncertainty and anxiety and continue to move forward in purposeful action toward their goals,” Simmons said. Social sciences instructor Naomi Chapman said some of her students are struggling and some are thriving online. “We’re just seeing more (people) reaching out for extra help or time or saying going through this or that with my family with illness, job loss or being unsure in that situation. I think they feel more open to tell me about that because they know that other people have that going on, too. It’s caused me to also learn new ways of working with people through that situation.” Fuentes noted that there has been an infusion of federal money that has helped students stay in college. He said his message to students is to take advantage of those funds. “We get that the economy is impacting you and your ability to be here, but the federal government is helping to make it possible. Odessa College is also making it possible through additional scholarship funds, so we are leveraging all our resources to help you be successful and stay in school,” Fuentes said. Fuentes said the death of George Floyd at the hands of police in Minneapolis, Minn., was one of the incidents in 2020 that led to civil unrest. “You couldn’t watch that video and not be impacted. It hit hard and it … hit a humanitarian tone within us where something is clearly wrong,” Fuentes said. “When you hear somebody calling out for their mother, as a parent how can I not react to that? It hit a cord in America and I saw many respond to it through social media. People wanted to talk about it and it’s a conversation that needs to be had in the United States.” He added that in government class they talk about civil rights and people think it was back in the 50s and 60s, but it continues on. “… We’re not exactly where we need to be,” Fuentes said. “America is still a work in progress and … we still have work to do.” Simmons said from a mental health perspective thinking about the images people viewed. “You think you have to first have a firsthand experience with something to be traumatized, or to experience symptoms of PTSD, but there is something known as second-hand trauma, so I think for a lot of people seeing those images and just everything going on was traumatic. We saw a lot of the symptoms that you would see in somebody that’s a first responder and has seen things first hand and then also kind of re-traumatization so individuals who may have experienced those types of things first hand, seeing those images kind of re-ignites that trauma that maybe they had healed from previously, so I think trauma’s a big component in that conversation,” Simmons said. Brown noted that civil unrest normally doesn’t stem from just one issue. “There are normally other social-economic issues that take place in the same time frame, or same span, that now it’s come to a head …,” Brown said. There have been conversations and commissions on criminal justice reform and law enforcement and understanding law enforcement corruption. From a law enforcement perspective, Brown said some departments started changing their use of force policies with chokeholds; reevaluating what that looks like; looking at the force continuum; how was that evaluated where it may be changed; the accountability piece; looking at implicit bias; de-escalation. If an officer sees another officer using excessive force, is it their duty to stop it or report it?

Johnson signed the Fair Housing Act into law, one week after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. In honor of the anniversary, Trulia partnered with the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA) to examine the state of housing in 2018 and spotlight areas where inequalities still persist in the housing landscape, even all these years later.Trulia and the NFHA targeted four cities for the study—Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, and Oakland, California—comparing U.S. Census Bureau demographic data against amenity data gathered from Yelp. For the purposes of this study, Trulia considered amenities including financial services, health services, healthy food, and fitness and outdoor activities.Numerous inequalities between majority white and majority nonwhite census tracts stood out (a majority nonwhite area defined as one in which “more than 50 percent of the population is made up of any combination of people of color, including Hispanics”). Trulia found that majority-nonwhite census areas across all four metros had an average of 35.1 percent fewer traditional banking establishments than majority-white areas. On the other hand, majority non-white areas in all four metros featured twice as many alternative banking establishments. “Unlike mainstream financial services, alternative ones charge much higher fees, take deposits, and offer loans that do not help build credit histories,” reads the report. “As a result, these institutions are seen as providing costlier credit.”According to Trulia, the problem was worst in Houston, of the four metros examined, with majority-white areas having 5.25 times more traditional financial services outlets than majority-black areas and nearly three times that of majority-Hispanic areas.Trulia also found that majority non-white areas in all four cities had 38.4 percent fewer healthcare establishments than majority white areas, with the problem being especially pronounced in Houston and Oakland.Majority non-white areas in all four metros also showed 33.9 percent fewer healthy lifestyle options such as parks, playgrounds, or recreation centers.“The location of these amenities offer a first glimpse into the types of services and options are most readily available to which communities and suggests that the unevenness of housing opportunities for certain racial and ethnic groups is intimately related to the availability of quality services that help communities thrive,” states the report.You can read the full report, complete with interactive maps, by clicking here.  Print This Post amenities Banks Diversity Fair Housing Fair Housing Act Financial services National Fair Housing Alliance Trulia 2018-04-19 David Wharton Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Examining Housing Inequality Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: For More Affordable Homes, Move to the Middle Next: Debt and Regret Among Some Homebuyerslast_img read more

First nor’easter of the season on the way for the East Coast

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — Texas continued to get hit by heavy rain early Thursday even as flooding continued in the state from downpours last week.The remnants of Tropical Storm Willa is also bringing heavy rain to most of the Southeast, including Panama City and the rest of the Florida panhandle, where residents are still recovering from Hurricane Michael earlier this month.On Thursday morning, the storm was near Houston, bringing heavy rain from New Orleans up into Arkansas.By Thursday afternoon and evening, rain could intensify from the Panama City area up to southern Alabama, where some flash flooding is possible.The storm system is expected to move north Friday into the Carolinas, bringing heavy rain and wind to Wilmington, North Carolina, an area hard-hit by Hurricane Florence last month.That heavy rain is forecast to spread into the Northeast Friday evening and night, and into Saturday morning. Gusty northeast winds in the Northeast will be as high as 30 to 40 mph with gusts near 50 at the coast.Coastal flooding is possible in the area, as well as road flooding inland and in urban areas.As the storm system moves from the Gulf Coast into the Northeast, 1 to 3 inches of rain is possible for major cities along the way. Mountainous areas of northern New York state, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine could see snow and a mix of snow and rain.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Fast-track solution to NHS staff ills

first_img Comments are closed. Fast-track solution to NHS staff illsOn 1 May 2003 in Personnel Today An NHS trust has begun a pilot scheme offering employees fast-tracktreatment in a bid to get them back to work as fast as possible. Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust began the trial among its 3,500 staffin April, and it will run for six months. Under the scheme, employees are offered fast-track A&E and outpatienttreatment and consultations, although the trust stressed that no member of thepublic would have an appointment cancelled and no treatment targets would bejeopardised as a result. Staff will be able to get outpatient consultations within one month ofreferral, and in-patient treatment within three months, or the next availableappointment. “If we can keep our staff healthy, then we can provide more and betterservices to the community,” said Nick Groves, the trust’s director ofworkplace development. The scheme is also expected to reduce costs because managers will be able tocut the number of agency staff they need to cover for absent trust employees. The trust’s OH department would also have an important role to play in beingthe main port of call if staff feel that for whatever reason the process is notworking for them, he said. But the trust scrapped an idea to pass administration of the scheme to theOH department, deciding such a move would be too unwieldy and bureaucratic.

Extinction risk and conservation of the world’s sharks and rays

first_imgThe rapid expansion of human activities threatens ocean-wide biodiversity. Numerous marine animal populations have declined, yet it remains unclear whether these trends are symptomatic of a chronic accumulation of global marine extinction risk. We present the first systematic analysis of threat for a globally distributed lineage of 1,041 chondrichthyan fishes—sharks, rays, and chimaeras. We estimate that one-quarter are threatened according to IUCN Red List criteria due to overfishing (targeted and incidental). Large-bodied, shallow-water species are at greatest risk and five out of the seven most threatened families are rays. Overall chondrichthyan extinction risk is substantially higher than for most other vertebrates, and only one-third of species are considered safe. Population depletion has occurred throughout the world’s ice-free waters, but is particularly prevalent in the Indo-Pacific Biodiversity Triangle and Mediterranean Sea. Improved management of fisheries and trade is urgently needed to avoid extinctions and promote population recovery.last_img read more
