Courtesy photo[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal-affiliated camps and conference centers – whether they’re owned by dioceses or operated independently – have allowed the church to branch out into an increasingly secular world, offering children and adults an experience with faith in a more neutral and natural setting than the local church. But their business model – relying on income from the hundreds of visitors that stay at the facilities, often in close proximity – has been decimated by COVID-19.How are they staying afloat, and will they survive? Some may not, said Ashley Graham-Wilcox, director of communications and events for the nonprofit group Episcopal Camps & Conference Centers.Four of its member facilities – Camp Mitchell in Arkansas, Gray Center in Mississippi and Camp Stoney and the Bosque Center in New Mexico – are evaluating if and how they can reopen. But many are adapting to the new normal, diversifying their offerings and moving camps online. One facility, Camp Allen in Texas, even held its summer camp, with COVID-19 protocols including daily temperature checks and pre-camp quarantine.With camps and conference centers varying greatly in location, size and resources, a wide variety of strategies were used this summer.“We are responding creatively and continuing to look for ways to serve our communities, and need and appreciate support from across the church,” Graham-Wilcox told Episcopal News Service.Kanuga, the largest Episcopal-affiliated camp and conference center, sits on 1,400 acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina. With over 150 buildings capable of hosting 700 people, Kanuga’s overhead expenses are significant.“It is a very expensive property to maintain,” said the Rev. Michael Sullivan, Kanuga’s president.Empty chairs line a deck at Kanuga. Courtesy photoThat made it all the more devastating when the pandemic forced Kanuga to cancel scheduled conferences – including Nuevo Amanecer, which is being held online – and its two summer camps in the spring. By the end of May, Kanuga had already lost $2 million in revenue, and Sullivan says that figure is now up to $7.5 million.Kanuga is an independent nonprofit, not owned by a diocese, so it is responsible for generating its own income. It immediately launched a fundraising drive and “experienced an abundance of support,” said marketing and communications director Jane Cox Childress, raising $1.2 million from over 1,700 people. Kanuga also received a payroll grant in the first round of the Paycheck Protection Program. Still, major cuts had to be made, including staff reductions. Usually there are about 100 year-round employees; now there are fewer than 20.With in-person conferences and camps still off the table, Kanuga focused on renting its cabins and cottages as socially distant retreats where people could enjoy the natural beauty and outdoor activities Kanuga offers, like tennis, hiking, canoeing and archery.Visitors enjoy the pool at Kanuga. Courtesy photoBut the biggest lifeline turned out to be a project that was already in the works before the pandemic hit: a mountain biking park called Ride Kanuga. National downhill racing champion Neko Mulally partnered with Kanuga to build a series of trails on Kanuga’s land, for which Kanuga receives a portion of the profit. Passes are available by the day, month or year, and riders can stay at trailside cabins, campsites or the main Kanuga cabins.The park opened in mid-July, and with people eager to find socially distant outdoor activities, “the timing of its opening could not have been better for Kanuga,” Childress said.Since then, the park has hosted hundreds of guests. A “ride and stay” promotion over Labor Day weekend was especially effective; about 30% of the lodging guests that weekend were there for Ride Kanuga.“I would go so far as to say that Ride Kanuga is probably our greatest hope for making it through this,” Sullivan said.Mountain bikers ride the trails at Ride Kanuga. Courtesy photoSmaller facilities have lower operating costs but fewer options for in-person activities. The Claggett Center in Adamstown, Maryland, is owned by the Diocese of Maryland but is self-sustaining through program fees.“[In] a typical year, financially, we’re a really healthy organization and are able to not just cover our operating expenses, but to continue to invest and have repairs and maintenance and things like that,” said Lisa Marie Ryder, the center’s co-executive director.But when it was forced to cancel its summer camps in May, along with scheduled conferences and retreats, it faced a 75% drop in revenue for 2020. It applied for and received several grants from nonprofits and government agencies; through federal aid, the center was able to retain its full staff of 38 people until June, but after the funding ran out, about 75% of the staff was laid off.Still, with some counselors on campus, the center was able to offer “long-distance camp” online to small groups that met weekly for activities, games, Bible study and even live campfire songs by request. About 20-30 kids participated in those groups for the full 10 weeks they were offered, as well as some one-off small groups.For the fall, the center has a brand-new program designed to meet the needs of families during the pandemic: the Claggett Academic Mentoring Program (C.A.M.P.), offering on-site, socially distant child care and online learning facilitation for kids in elementary and middle school.The public school system in Frederick County, in which the center is located, is holding classes completely online at least for the beginning of the school year, putting a strain on working parents. C.A.M.P. is designed to synchronize with the public school schedule and curriculum, providing kids with the equipment, supervision and tutoring they need – as well as socialization and recreation.“This is an opportunity for working families to be able to actually still go to work,” Ryder told ENS. “They can send their kid here and have them here in a safe environment, and our tutors and mentors are assisting them and helping them work through their virtual learning. And when learning time isn’t happening, they’ll be canoeing and playing games and doing all the fun and wonderful things that camp offers, but in a CDC-compliant and socially distant and safe way.”The center is acutely aware, however, that access to these kinds of child care and online learning support groups is a factor in deepening inequity in education, so they built equitable opportunity into the program.“One of the things we were seeing in our community was that families who are of means – it hasn’t been particularly hard for them to find the support they need, so people are forming education pods, they’re hiring private tutors,” Ryder said. “We’re going to mirror the percentage of kids in our county who are on free or reduced lunch. We’re committing 27% of our program to be free to kids on free or reduced lunch. … We’ve formed a great partnership with a group in our area that works with children experiencing homelessness. And they’ve been really excited that this is a great opportunity and a great place to get those kids engaged in a safe place for six hours a day.”Even with all their innovative solutions, though, so many camps and conference centers still face the threat of closure – even major facilities like Kanuga. With the timeline for a COVID-19 vaccine uncertain, facilities can’t assume things will be back to normal next summer.“COVID will definitely have long-term impacts on our camps and sites, spaces that thrive and are driven by bringing people together, with no certainty or definitive ideas around when people will feel safe gathering in groups again, or sending their children to gather in groups,” Graham-Wilcox said.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Brian Lima picks on Mirco Bergamasco in the Tsunami Charity Match of 2005

first_imgTuesday Jan 29, 2008 Brian Lima picks on Mirco Bergamasco in the Tsunami Charity Match of 2005 In 2005 the North Hemisphere faced the Southern Hemisphere in an IRB Rugby Aid match at Twickenham. The match was played to raise money for the United Nations World Food Programme to support victims of the of the tragic Indian Ocean Tsunami that wrecked thousands of peoples lives and homes forever. Top players from around the world were chosen to represent the relevant teams, and a great match was played for a great cause. The Southern Hemisphere came out tops with a final score of 54-19, with a lot of the Tri Nations players featuring strongly, helped by great performances by Samoans Sititi & Lima. Over 40 000 people attended the game, and it was a success, reportedly raising over a million pounds for this good cause. Brian Lima wasn’t feeling as charitable though, as Italian wing Mirco Bergamasco soon found out in the worst possible way. The ‘Chiropractor’ picked on him all day, making Bergamasco wonder what he’d done to deserve that treatment from one of the hardest hitters the games ever seen.Time: 01:11 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.

The architectural potential that lies in an existing house and structure has been the base and driving force in the work with this Moelven prefabricated house. The house in the waterfront has been transformed into a spacious and modern house for a family that wanted to create a home for the future. In order to continue and emphasize the stereotypical gabled shape of the Moelven house, the main focus has been to remove roof eaves and transform the façade- and roof materials to cedar wood. Hidden gutters and scarce transitions create a defined volume that represents the architecture of our time inspired by the everyday house.Save this picture!© Herman DreyerSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Herman DreyerThe existing space division has been transformed and adapted to the way of living. The site’s location and natural elements have been a key factor for the inside space design and organization.

This exciting approach to collaboration meant that a really diverse group of people were able to innovate together to address key social and environmental challenges.”Emma Thomas, CEO of YouthNet said: “As the UK’s largest volunteering database, Do-it exists to make volunteering easy and the development of +U provides huge potential for the sector to develop the way that we encourage and motivate people to volunteer.“We know from our own research* that nearly three quarters of people who undertake volunteer work do so to make more effective use of their spare time and, through +U, people will potentially be able to browse and apply for opportunities wherever and whenever it suits them.”As part of the initiative, YouthNet is working with charities to explore new microvolunteering opportunities.The application code for +U is open source so will be made available for free for development by other charities and organisations across Europe. Sony hope to see it used in a range of other ways and formats.Wasowska added: “We hope that the +U application will be of interest to the many hard working volunteering groups across Europe; we hope that they are able to utilise this back-end solution to create further awareness, support and action for their worthwhile causes.”www.sony.co.uk/+U About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

African Americans reject imperialism, part 2

first_imgPart 1: Black Liberation and the Vietnamese struggleOne of the earliest developments in the Civil Rights Movement in the South related to Vietnam was a campaign by the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party in the summer of 1965. A flyer and petition were circulated calling for African Americans to refuse induction into the military to fight in Vietnam since they were not given equal rights in the U.S.By early January 1966, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee issued an official statement opposing the war and the draft. This intervention took place in the immediate aftermath of the racist murder of SNCC member Sammy Younge Jr. for his defiance of segregation laws in Alabama.The SNCC statement read in part:“The murder of Samuel Younge in Tuskegee, Ala., is no different than the murder of peasants in Vietnam. For both Younge and the Vietnamese sought and are seeking to secure the rights guaranteed them by law. In each case, the United States government bears a great part of the responsibility for these deaths. Samuel Younge was murdered because United States law is not being enforced. Vietnamese are murdered because the United States is pursuing an aggressive policy in violation of international law. The United States is no respecter of persons or law when such persons or laws run counter to its needs or desires.”Julian Bond, a longtime SNCC organizer, ran successfully for the Georgia state legislature in late 1965. However, the authorities denied him the right to take his seat after he said publicly that SNCC’s position on Vietnam was his own as well.In August 1966, the SNCC chapter in Atlanta embarked on a campaign to expose the racist character of the Vietnam War both domestically and in Southeast Asia. Women and men organizers in and around SNCC set up picket lines outside the induction center located near the heart of the African-American community.These demonstrations soon prompted attacks by hostile mobs of whites along with police officers. Protesters were called racist slurs; had cigarettes, water and other objects thrown at them; and faced outright physical assaults.1966 was the year there was a radical change in the character of SNCC’s leadership with the takeover by Stokely Carmichael (later known as Kwame Ture) as chairman. Carmichael had direct organizing experience in Mississippi in 1964 and Alabama in 1965-66, where the Lowndes County Freedom Organization was formed and became known as the Black Panther Party.There was an intensification of antiwar work and the linking of the African-American liberation struggle with global developments in Vietnam and other regions of Asia along with Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean and Latin America.Gwen Patton of SNCC speaking at the University of Havana in Cuba during the 1960s.Black women oppose war on VietnamSNCC activists such as Diane Nash, a veteran of the Nashville Civil Rights Movement and the Freedom Rides of 1960-61, traveled to North Vietnam in 1966 to call for the end of U.S. aggression through addresses over Radio Hanoi.Gwen Patton, a graduate of Tuskegee University, was instrumental as well in organizing efforts to build the antiwar movement among African Americans.In a report by Ashley Farmer on Patton’s contributions, she notes: “Patton constantly centered Black women within her pro-Black, anti-imperialist politics, making her a foundational figure in late 1960s Black feminist theorizing. Living and working alongside SNCC organizers like Faye Bellamy and Ethel Minor foregrounded the importance of developing emancipatory projects that were gender-inclusive. Patton was largely responsible for creating the Black Women’s Liberation Committee (BWLC), a women’s collective within SNCC. This group engaged in central questions about the ideological underpinnings of women, gender roles, and revolution.”SNCC viewed the struggle for Black Liberation as part and parcel of the revolutionary movements sweeping Asia, Africa and other areas of the world. An International Section was created and directed by James Forman, the former executive secretary.By 1967, Forman was presenting papers in national and international forums expressing solidarity with the Vietnamese and independence movements in Southern Africa, among other geopolitical areas.By early 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was rapidly becoming outspoken about his opposition to the Vietnam War through newspaper columns, speeches, an antiwar march in Chicago in late March and the famous Riverside Church address, dubbed “Beyond Vietnam” on April 4, just one year to the date before his assassination in Memphis. On April 15, King spoke alongside Carmichael outside the United Nations in New York to thousands of anti-war opponents.Heavyweight internationalistsMuhammad Ali, the heavyweight champion of the world, was one of the most widely known personalities internationally. Ali had changed his name from Cassius Clay when he went public with his conversion to the Nation of Islam after winning the championship in early 1964.During this period in early 1964, Ali was close to Malcolm X, who left the NOI by late March. This caused an irreparable breach between the two men, with the heavyweight champion remaining with Elijah Muhammad.By 1966, Ali was being hounded by the draft board. He officially refused induction in early 1967, citing religious grounds. Ali also emphasized that he did not feel obligated to wage war against the Vietnamese people based upon the lack of freedom for the Black man in the U.S.Both Dr. King and SNCC supported Ali in his decision. This opened the way for broader alliances in opposition to the Vietnam War.By May 1967, Stokely Carmichael had completed one year as chair of SNCC and turned over the leadership to H. Rap Brown (later known as Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin). He would later go to Cuba and address a summit of Latin American liberation organizations, attracting the attention of Premier Fidel Castro through his speech.Carmichael also traveled to Hanoi and met with Ho Chi Minh. He subsequently reported that Ho encouraged him to focus more attention on the African Revolution. While in Hanoi, the former SNCC chairman requested a seminar on the building of a united front such as the NLF.In recounting this event, Carmichael revealed that the U.S. began bombing Hanoi after the seminar started. Vietnamese party leaders then moved Carmichael into a bunker in order to continue the course. One bomb struck near the location of that session, causing some debris to fall on the instructor’s notes. Carmichael recounted how the dust was wiped away quickly and the class continued without interruption“When I saw this I knew that the Americans would be defeated,” he jovially said. (Lecture delivered at Wayne State University in Detroit, March 13, 1992)Next: The Black Panther Party, international solidarity and state repression.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Fire forces London-bound flight to make emergency landing in Boston

first_imgJevgenij Kulikov/iStock(BOSTON) — A London-bound flight was forced to make an emergency landing in Boston on Thursday night when a fire broke out on board, authorities said. Flames and smoke appeared to be coming from a passenger seat on Virgin Atlantic Flight 138, after it took off from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport. The flight crew extinguished the fire as the pilots made an emergency landing at Boston’s Logan International Airport, according to the Massachusetts State Police.All 217 passengers on board were safely evacuated and transported to a terminal inside the airport, where they awaited a replacement aircraft.One passenger who complained of smoke inhalation refused medical treatment, police said.The Massachusetts State Police’s explosive ordnance disposal unit inspected the seat in the area of the fire and found a device between the cushions that had ignited.“Preliminary investigation suggests it is a battery pack consistent in appearance with an external phone charger,” Massachusetts State Police spokesman Dave Procopio said in a statement late Thursday night.The investigation is ongoing.

Some measurements of turbulence over an antarctic ice shelf

first_imgProfiles of wind speed, temperature and turbulent fluxes of heat and momentum in the lowest 32 m have been measured at a station on an antarctic ice shelf. During the antarctic winter the surface layer often shows strong static stability, with temperature gradients as large as 1 Km−1 in the lowest few metres. the surface inversion is destroyed during periods of high wind speed but the wind profile shows significant deviation from the expected logarithmic form under such conditions. Measurements of stress at 5 m indicate that the roughness length of the snow surface is about lO−4 m. At 5 m height, the variations of the dimensionless wind shear, ϕm, and potential temperature gradient, ϕT, agree with previously determined forms of the Monin‐Obukhov similarity functions. Above 5 m, the behaviour of ϕm and ϕT is only qualitatively similar and surface‐layer similarity theory does not provide a good description of the profiles. Turbulence length scales have been deduced from vertical velocity power spectra. Under near‐neutral conditions, the ratio of turbulence length scale to measurement height is observed to decrease with increasing height of measurement. This observation is consistent with the variation of turbulence length scale with height implied by the measurements of ϕm. It is suggested that the stability of the overlying atmosphere restricts the depth of the turbulent boundary layer and hence the length scales of turbulence within this layer. Increasing stability causes a decrease of turbulence length scales at all levels. The ratios of turbulence kinetic energy to stress and temperature variance to heat flux are examined. Measurements are somewhat scattered, but the distribution of values varies little with height or stability. the form of the distribution suggests that large‐scale motions, possibly internal gravity waves, may be playing an important role in boundary‐layer processes.last_img read more

Global patterns of sex- and age-specific variation in seabird bycatch

first_imgFisheries bycatch is a major threat to seabird populations, and understanding sex- and age-biases in bycatch rates is important for assessing population-level impacts. We analysed 44 studies to provide the first global assessment of seabird bycatch by sex and age, and used generalised models to investigate the effects of region and fishing method. Bycatch was highly biased by sex (65% of 123 samples) and age (92% of 114 samples), with the majority of samples skewed towards males and adults. Bycatch of adults and males was higher in subpolar regions, whereas there was a tendency for more immatures and females to be killed in subtropical waters. Fishing method influenced sex- and age-ratios only in subpolar regions. Sex- and age-biases are therefore common features of seabird bycatch in global fisheries that appear to be associated largely with differences in at-sea distributions. This unbalanced mortality influences the extent to which populations are impacted by fisheries, which is a key consideration for at-risk species. We recommend that researchers track individuals of different sex and age classes to improve knowledge of their distribution, relative overlap with vessels, and hence susceptibility to bycatch. This information should then be incorporated in ecological risk assessments of effects of fisheries on vulnerable species. Additionally, data on sex, age and provenance of bycaught birds should be collected by fisheries observers in order to identify regions and fleets where bycatch is more likely to result in population-level impacts, and to improve targeting of bycatch mitigation and monitoring of compliance.last_img read more
