Diocese of Canterbury welcomes its new archbishop

first_img Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Hopkinsville, KY Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ [Episcopal News Service] Snow and ice hit Kent on the morning of March 23, the day the diocese welcomed its new archbishop at a special service at Canterbury Cathedral. Even with the bitter cold, hundreds filled the cathedral as a smiling Archbishop Justin Welby entered the West Door accompanied by the Very Rev. Robert Willis, cathedral dean, and Bishop of Dover the Trevor Willmott.During the service, titled “Our Jouney into Holy Week,” several people offered testimonies of what the week ahead would mean for them. Welby said that Holy Week was a time “to journey together” and to “say yes to the invitation” to be “partners” in Christ’s mission and plan for the world. He also said that “How much God loves us is what makes us fit” for His service and that accepting Christ’s love and his call will mean our “being with Him forever.”The new archbishop, who was inaugurated at the cathedral on March 21, said, “Jesus loves us and we must share that love.”Speaking of mission, he said, “Our proclamation must be world-changing, that world that we dream of.” The 57-year-old primate said that we must “learn to love” one another, even when that can be “difficult,” adding that “the way we live together,” even in our diversity, is an important witness to the world, yes “even when we disagree.”Attending the service was Archbishop of the Indian Ocean Ian Ernest, whose Diocese of Madagascar shares a companion link with the Diocese of Canterbury. The offering during the service was designated for the Madagascar diocese. Welby invited Ernest to offer the final blessing, which was in French. Willis emphasized the importance of the cathedral being the mother church of the worldwide Anglican Communion, as well as the diocese.The first hymn was the same one sung at the conclusion of the March 21 inauguration service. So to the strains of “And Can It Be That I Should Gain?” the two services were, as the dean remarked, “linked together.”The 90-minute service on March 23 included a gospel choir from Christ Church University, of which Welby is chancellor. Traditional and more modern hymns and songs were sung with the cathedral choir of men and boys singing Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Passion Chorale” and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ “Love bade me welcome,” with words by George Herbert. Murray Wilkinson, diocesan youth ministry advisor, sang some worship songs as a prelude to the gathering.Members of the Archbishop’s Council led the prayers and there were several “interview slots,” including a conversation with Willmott and the very young students from Bredgar Primary School. Readings were from Isaiah 61 and Luke’s account of the entry into Jerusalem.Welby spoke briefly about the inauguration ceremony and called the experience “uplifting, enjoyable” and thanked the dean for the “Rolls Royce smoothness” of it all. He said, “I had fun!”On the evening of March 21, Welby and his wife Caroline attended a dinner for more than 300 people at the University of Kent at Canterbury, organized by the Nikaean Club, a group of clergy and laity that helps the archbishop in ecumenical matters, especially the hosting of visiting dignitaries operating through Lambeth Palace and Colin Menzies its chairman. Leaders of the Philippine Independent Church, Orthodox churches, the Roman Catholic Church, Lutheran churches, as well as some Anglican bishops, were present. The archbishop made special mention of the presence of Pastor Rick Warren, a well known Protestant leader in the United States, and the Rev. Nicky Gumble from Holy Trinity Brompton, London, home of the Alpha Course.Welby presided at the Palm Sunday rites and Sung Eucharist at 11 a.m. and will bring the clergy together for the annual Renewal of Vows and the Chrism Mass at 11 a.m. on Maundy Thursday. He will celebrate and preach at 11 a.m. Easter Day in the cathedral.The following prayer was offered at the March 23 welcome: Bless those who lead the church’s worship at this solemn time especially Archbishop Justin and Pope Francis in their new ministries. Bless this our diocese and Bishop Trevor. In the preaching of the word and the celebration of the sacraments draw people close to you. By the Savior’s cross and passion, Lord save us and help us.

SeekOps Incorporated Licenses NASA Sensor Technology

first_imgBusiness Districts News SeekOps Incorporated Licenses NASA Sensor Technology Pasadena venture begins commercialization for energy industry. From STAFF REPORTS Published on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 | 1:01 pm Subscribe Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  SeekOps founders Brenrdan Smith (l) and Dr. Andrew Aubrey (r) with the SeekOps methane detection drone. The two founders recently left JPL to commercialize the technology (photo at Pasadena City Hall).A new venture company, SeekOps Inc., has executed a license agreement with the California Institute of Technology for miniature gas sensor technology developed over the last 5 years at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Founders Andrew Aubrey (CEO) and Brendan Smith (COO) led industry applications of the Open Path Laser Spectrometer (OPLS) technology while employed at JPL.The miniature form factor of this NASA gas sensor enables it to be used as a handheld tool or deployed on small unmanned aerial systems (UAS), commonly known as drones. This technology provides far greater sensitivity than current field-deployable measurement devices, allowing field crews to locate small leaks from infrastructure before they become a safety concern.Andrew Aubrey discussed the new NASA technology: “This sensor and software has been optimized for mobile leak detection using the handheld and aerial configurations. SeekOps’ products and services decrease the time required for leak detection operations, saving time and product, while enhancing public safety.”SeekOps is currently implementing an aggressive commercialization strategy at their Pasadena office. The sensors are made at their facility, then integrated with their professional-grade UAS or configured as handheld sensors for sale to natural gas service providers. This rapid schedule is possible due to the founders’ familiarity with the sensor design and their involvement in implementation of the technology.Brendan Smith leads the UAS integration efforts: “Energy companies can realize major benefits by integrating SeekOps’ services as part of their leak detection programs – the UAS deployment is the real game changer for enhanced detection and geolocation efficiency.”The company is currently planning to deploy their commercial leak detection services in Summer 2017 while handheld sensors will be made to keep up with industry demand.For more information, visit http://www.seekops.com/.

JT McNamara posthumously honoured at Mid West Press Ball

Limerick jockey said that, thanks to the support and giving of many, everything that could be done was done for her late husband.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “We as a family are evidence of the incredible work that charities do.  My mother and I – I say my mother as she was my and John’s backbone of support – can put our hands on our heart and say that we did everything we could for John,  to keep him at home and give him some quality of life.  We have no regrets.“We were able to do this because of the fund raising and support that we received form the public and we will always be humbled and grateful for that. I just hope that the public will continue to give to charities so that others like us can get the type of support we did.  Quite simply, John would never have been able to return home and live out his life with us, his family, were it not for the support of others.”Presenting the award, Minister Noonan said that the jockey was an inspiration to all whose lives are thrown into turmoil.  “It’s fair to say that JT just over three years ago faced one of the worst scenarios that anyone can face.  Yet, hearing his wife Caroline talking about how the injury brought him and his children closer over the last few years and the special time they had despite his difficulties, you get a great insight into the man.“I know Caroline’s mother from my time growing up in Loughill and they are great people and that certainly shone out in Caroline in the way she dealt with JT’s accident and passing.  Some people get dealt dreadful hands in life and it takes courage to play them as well as JT McNamara did.  It’s a tragedy that we are not here celebrating his success as a jockey but for all his did in his career and after his career, it’s fitting that he gets this award. I know Carloine.”Said Rose Hynes, Chairman of award sponsors Shannon Group:  “It is a great honour for Shannon Group to be associated with this award for JT. Everyone was struck by the massive sense of loss around JT’s death.  Caroline and children Dylan, Harry and Olivia have shown remarkable strength and courage in the most difficult of times. ”Press Ball Chairman Ron Kirwan said: “When we sat down to decide the recipient of the award, once JT’s name was mentioned, the decision was made.  The news of JT’s passing ripped through the heart of the region, the country and the entire horse racing world.  For a young man to die doing what he loved and for his livelihood is tragic to say the very least.“Since we asked Caroline to receive this award, our appreciation for her own bravery has deepened and it’s an award foremost for JT and the way he dealt with his horrific injuries but also for the great inspiration she showed as a wife and mother.”The Press Ball, which was first held in 1951, has raised hundreds of thousands of euro for charities and voluntary bodies across the Mid-West region.  This year’s event, which was held at the Strand Hotel, will see funds principally go to local children’s charities and services.  The event also honoured two long-serving members of regional media – Limerick Live95FM’s Len Dineen, who has been working in radio locally since the 1970s, and the Clare Champion’s Tony Mulvey, who has worked with the newspaper for all of 58 years.

Phoenix ranked highest among the major metros in yearly home value growth with a 15.3% upswing, with San Jose a single percentage point behind at 15.2%. Other notable year-over-year gains occurred in Salt Lake City (13.2%), Seattle (13%), and Austin (12.9%).Monthly home value growth last month was 1.1%, unchanged from November. Nonetheless, this was still the fastest month-over-month growth that Zillow has recorded in 14 years. Monthly growth ranged from 0.6% in Las Vegas to 1.8% in Salt Lake City.Zillow’s data was mirrored by the latest Radian Home Price Index (HPI) data released by Red Bell Real Estate LLC, a Radian Group Inc. company, which determined four records were broken by the 2020 housing market: The highest average sales price ($381,316), the shortest days on market to sale (93), the number of closed sales (3.6 months) and the average active monthly listings (1.2 months).“In the end, there was nothing typical about 2020,” noted Steve Gaenzler, SVP of Data and Analytics. “As the country shut down in March, no one predicted what would happen over the remainder of the year. Despite a global pandemic, social unrest at levels not seen in generations, and a divisive political environment, the U.S. housing market thrived. In many ways, this was a Black Swan outcome, albeit a positive one.”“The confluence of fiscal policy, monetary policy, the administration, and private sector innovation such as remote valuations, digital closings and many other product innovations, paved the way to not just stabilize housing, but to create an environment for strong growth,” addedThe Radian HPI data also determined home prices rose from November to December at an annualized rate of 8.5% and closed the calendar year 2020 with an 8% annualized increase.
