Archbishop of Canterbury pays tribute as U.K. prime minister announces…

first_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Posted May 24, 2019 Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Knoxville, TN [Anglican Communion News Service] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has expressed his “admiration and gratitude” to the U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May after she announced that she will step down in the coming months. May will step down as leader of the ruling Conservative Party on June 7. Conservative MPs and members will then take part in an internal multi—stage electoral process to elect a new party leader, who will become prime minister. May will continue to serve as prime minister until the election process is complete. In his statement, Welby called on people to pray for political leaders “in these critical times in our shared national life.”Read the entire article here.

Is State Route 429 safe?

first_img The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here January 17, 2019 at 4:24 pm LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Smz Reply 429 is not the problem. It is idiots who do not care if they kill themselves and everyone else on the road. People need to slow down and stay off their phones!!!! David Reply We have been on the 429 very late at night before the morning and it would seem that we had the entire road almost to ourselves, hardly even see another vehicle. Pulled up to the toll booth one night and actually had to wake the toll person up, another night the toll lady was knitting, because she was that bored and had plenty of time on her hands. Oh, but come later in the mornings, and what a rat race people heading to work, and they will run over you, in a big hurry, lots of traffic then. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. February 7, 2017 at 9:45 pm 7 COMMENTS Please enter your comment! Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate I drive the 429 quite frequently. It is a safe road. Drivers on the other hand tend to be idiots. Analysis In 2016 Everquote named Interstate 4 the most deadly interstate highway in America.  State Route 429 is not an interstate highway, but the recent spate of accidents makes one wonder if State Route 429 is on track to be added to the list of the most dangerous highways in the country.According to the City of Apopka, there have been at least six accidents requiring action by the Apopka Fire Department on 429 or at a 429 interchange in the last 11 days:On Friday, January 27th, Apopka firefighters responded to a vehicle crash with a fire at State Route 429 and the connector road near U.S. Highway 441.A few hours later, at 2:30 AM, Apopka firefighters responded at to a second vehicle crash in the exact same location of the fiery car crash just a few hours earlier. A truck appeared to drive into and over the concrete barrier that the car hit at State Route 429 and the connector road near U.S. Highway 441.A few hours later the Apopka Fire Department responded to a two-vehicle accident, again on 429. This one involved a vehicle rollover. Six patients were transported to area hospitals. The southbound side of State Road 429 was closed during the accident investigation.On February 1st Apopka police, fire and streets departments responded to a vehicle crash at State Road 429 and the connector road to U.S. Highway 441. The crash involved a tow truck and another truck pulling a trailer full of roofing materials, which spilled out onto the roadway.On February 3rd Apopka firefighters responded to a vehicle crash involving a semi-tractor on southbound State Road 429 near State Road 414.On February 5th Apopka firefighters responded to a vehicle fire on northbound State Road 429 near State Road 414. No injuries were reported.The Apopka Voice asked the Apopka Police Department about the accident activity on State Road 429 and were told there were many factors to consider including; construction, increased use, speed, and design.Three of the reported accidents involved the 429 connector road at 441.  According to Mary Brooks, Public Information Officer for the Wekiva Parkway project, the Central Florida Expressway Authority is reviewing the pavement striping near the north end of 429.  They are reviewing data from the northbound ramp speed sensors.“Drivers need to be extra vigilant in work zones because of changing traffic patterns,” said Brooks.The speed limit on 429 was raised to 70 MPH two years ago after studies indicated higher traveling speeds are not necessarily associated with an increased risk of being involved in a crash.It is not certain there has been an actual increase in accidents, only that there seems to be more accidents being reported via social media. Michael Heaton February 7, 2017 at 6:36 pm Jeff Tyre February 10, 2017 at 9:13 pmcenter_img Drivers make very late decisions of whether they are to go onto the 414 or 429 and make radical lane changes at the last moment at high speed. A change of signage or additional signage a mile before that northbound intersection may help drivers proceed to the proper lane in plenty of time. February 7, 2017 at 9:20 pm Left lane passing lane law needs to be enforced, especially to professional drivers i.e. truckers, work trucks with trailers. These are the worst culprits all the time. February 8, 2017 at 6:32 am Mama Mia Reply You can see some nice fireworks nightly while traveling the 429 around exits 12 through 6 near Disney. Beautiful ones. If the wrecks were occurring along there, I would say that the drivers are taking their eyes off the road, and looking at the fireworks. However, so many of the wrecks happen right near 441 in Apopka, so I don’t know what is going on, other than they are pushing a schedule and in too big of a hurry, especially the big trucks when turning while fully loaded.

Ed O’Donoghue cleared of eyegouging after red card game changer

first_imgThursday May 22, 2014 Ed O’Donoghue cleared of eyegouging after red card game changer Reds lock Ed O’Donoghue was cleared of eyegouging following one of the most talked about few minutes of the season so far. The incident against the Rebels was briefly included in the Shortball earlier in the week, but here’s a longer look. With the scores tied at 27-27, Scott Higginbotham and O’Donoghue got in a tangle at the back of a ruck, then continued on the floor. There appeared to be a bit of a head clash (from Higginbotham), then O’Donoghue rubbed his hand all over the Rebels captain’s face.Referee Steve Walsh allowed play to continue but just as the Reds were about to throw in to an attacking lineout, the TMO intervened and recommended to Walsh that a red card – and penalty – for eyegouging was neccessary. The Rebels slotted the easy kick, winning the game 30-27.Reds captain James Horwill was furious, saying that they were robbed by a ‘stupid referee decision’, and continued in the press conference by saying that Super Rugby was being ruined as a spectacle.“I’ve played 150 professional games of rugby and I’ve never ever ever seen that happen before,” an irate Horwill said. “This spectacle of Super Rugby is being ruined. There’s too much going back and slowing of the game. It’s getting beyond a joke.“From my experience of eye gouging, there’s a mark. There was no mark on Higgers. Higgers thought he was in trouble. He was surprised [at the gouging claim]. At every breakdown, there are hands, arms, elbows, knees. That’s the reality of a physical game. You can’t pick one moment out and not go back for every single one in every game,” he added.Not GuiltyAt the hearing it was found that there was no contact with the eyes, so O’Donoghue was cleared and the red card was scrapped from his record, no doubt compounding the frustration for the Reds.“The act of eye gouging generally triggers a reaction from the victim, which was not evident in this case and helped support my finding,” said the SANZAR statement. They also listened to submissions from the Rebels medical team, and Higginbotham himself, who said he had no complaints.O’Donoghue says that eye-gouging sickens him.”I despise the act of eye-gouging and to think my name is linked with it after a little wrestle around the ruck sickens me. I’m not a gouger.”The lesson in all this is that, as Rebels flanker Scott Fuglistaller says, ‘the eyes are sacrosanct’, and if you’re going to stick your hand or fingers near them, be prepared to get a bit of heat for it.Update: James Horwill has been charged with a code of conduct breach following his ‘stupid refereeing decision’ comment. He faces a possible fine of up to $500.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 transformation of this house, in a thirteen-storey tower in a residential neighborhood in Madrid, has been a fundamental challenge: how to generate a fl uid space while integrating all the pipes and vertical structures that exist in a building of this type without losing height of ceilings and enhancing the generous natural light of its perimeter.Save this picture!© Davit RuizSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Davit RuizWe found the answer in the clearness and warmth of the spaces of the “paulista” architecture (see Casa Butanta, P. Mendes da Rocha) where the rawness of the seen structure coexist with the materials, carefully chosen, such as natural wood or the hydraulic tiles.Save this picture!© Davit RuizThus, we unify the main space of the house (living room, kitchen and dining room) using a hydraulic tile pavement that combines plain pieces (on the edges) and geometric ones (in the central space) that, together with the original concrete slab, creates a continuous space, articulated by the only piece that interrupts the horizontal vision of this space: the free-standing birch plywood piece of the kitchen.Save this picture!© Davit RuizSave this picture!© Davit RuizThe rest of the house is solved in a very natural way: the bathrooms are packed into adjoining spaces to reduce the facilities and the bedrooms are separated from the common spaces by deep entrances that contain the storage while isolate the rooms from the activity of the living room.The house is a ceiling, a floor and a piece of furniture.Save this picture!© Davit RuizProject gallerySee allShow lessLostvilla Qinyong Primary School Hotel / Atelier XÜKSelected ProjectsHouse 1/3 / MomentoSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

News Nicolas Sarkozy’s speech on 22 March 2012 (in French) – Watch around 2’00“We do not in any way defend violent or terrorist websites, but we think that the president’s statement was made in the heat of the moment and went after the wrong target by focusing on the Internet,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The proposed solution is disproportionate and could lead to a generalized Internet surveillance that threatens individual freedoms by enlisting Internet service providers in an attempt to identify those who consult such websites.“The president’s proposal could give rise to abuses that curtail freedom of access to online information. Protecting national security is obviously essential but the methods proposed are not the right ones and pose a serious threat to fundamental rights.”Such measures could also have serious consequences for investigative journalism and studies of terrorism. How can one investigate the growing use by terrorist groups of the Internet and social networks without monitoring what they post online? How could one develop any expertise if “habitually” consulting certain websites results in a criminal prosecution?At what point does visiting a violent website endanger public order? When should it be regarded as a criminal act? One can consult a website regularly without supporting the cause it defends. Who will compile the list of “terrorist” sites or sites to be watched? Will it be made public? Who will carry out this surveillance? And what control mechanisms will be used to prevent any possibility of abuses?The president’s proposal, which affects the entire country, raises many questions. We request urgent clarification.(Picture: AFP / France 2) May 10, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders calls on new Human Rights Council to quickly prove its good will

first_img June 19, 2006 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Reporters Without Borders calls on new Human Rights Council to quickly prove its good will “The UN human rights council got off on the wrong foot – we have said this before and we say it again today,” says Reporters Without Borders, urging the council to do everything possible to quickly abandon the former human rights commission’s deplorable practices. Organisation News Reporters Without Borders today called on the new United Nations Human Rights Council to quickly prove its good will, saying it had serious concerns about press freedom in some of the Council’s member-states.”The Council has got off to a bad start because its members includes Algeria, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, China, Cuba, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia and Tunisia and we have grave doubts about how effective it will be,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“But we do not want to be over-pessimistic, so we urge it to quickly show its good intentions, especially its member-states that most respect human rights, from the day it starts work on 19 June.””It should immediately promise to make every effort to reject the disgraceful practices of the human rights commission that preceded it and see that any country systematically abusing human rights is criticised, especially those belonging to the Council.“We also hope the rule suspending members deemed to have ‘flagrantly and systematically’ violated human rights will not remain just a line in an official document but will be suitably applied. How will the UN ensure this is done?” it asked.China and Cuba are the world’s two biggest prisons for journalists. Censorship is the rule in Saudi Arabia and Tunisia and journalists there who dare to cross the red lines marked out by the regime face harsh punishment.The Russian government already controls the country’s major news organisations, starting with main TV networks. Violence against journalists and media workers is almost daily in Bangladesh, Nigeria and Pakistan. Dozens of journalists in Algeria risk being thrown in prison at any time and the government is stepping up prosecutions of the most critical media. In Azerbaijan, the killers of two journalists murdered last year have not been punished.The Council will hold its first session from 19 to 30 June in Geneva. Three other sessions will be held this year and early next. Help by sharing this information RSF_en last_img read more

FHFA Outlines 2015 Goals for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Tory Barringer Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Common Securitization Solutions Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) released its 2015 Scorecard for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on Wednesday, outlining the steps the two GSEs are expected to take this year to support the U.S. housing market.As FHFA Director Mel Watt revealed in his first public speech as the agency’s chief, the companies’ new direction revolves around three main objectives: maintain, reduce, and build.”Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made significant progress toward achieving the goals in FHFA’s Strategic Plan for the Conservatorships last year and we look forward to building on that progress in 2015,” Watt said Wednesday.The chief goal, maintain (which accounts for 40 percent of the scorecard), largely focuses on efforts to increase access to mortgages for creditworthy borrowers while still sticking to responsible risk management practices.Among the goals in that category are instructions for the GSEs to finalize their rep and warranty frameworks (a process started late last year), encourage more participation from smaller lenders, and continue watching for other hurdles to credit access.Also included on the “maintain” list are instructions to practice loss mitigation strategies by directing eligible homeowners to take advantage of the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP) and developing plans to cut down on severely delinquent mortgages in the GSEs’ portfolios with loan modifications, short sales, and other actions.The next step in FHFA’s plan, “reduce,” outlines expectations for Fannie and Freddie to reduce their own presence in the mortgage market and boost the role of private capital.Instructions in this category were separate for each GSE: In 2015, Fannie Mae will make credit transfers on reference pools of single-family mortgages with an unpaid principal balance of at least $150 billion, while Freddie Mac is expected to do the same for a balance of $120 billion. The balance requirement for both enterprises will be reviewed and adjusted when needed to reflect market conditions, FHFA said.Finally, both Fannie and Freddie are expected to work with FHFA and each other to build and test a platform designed for a common security between the two of them.While FHFA estimates it will still be years before the development of a common securitization platform (CSP), the agency and the GSEs have already made the first steps by establishing a joint venture—called Common Securitization Solutions (CSS)—to oversee the process.For its part, CSS is tasked with designing the platform, focusing this year on including any functions the GSEs need for their securitization activities and working with them to get input from the public and the mortgage industry.”These objectives will allow FHFA to work with Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Common Securitization Solutions to build a strong, vibrant national housing finance market, which will create new homeownership and rental opportunities for existing and potential borrowers,” Watt said.

TCCCPR Regulations make it mandatory for every telecom operator to register telemarketers in order to prevent online frauds and phishing through unsolicited commercial calls (UCCs) and SMSs. While granting time to the telecom regulator to show degree of compliance with the said guidelines, the Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan highlighted that: ‘TRAI should take action in accordance with law against those who are not complying with the regulations. We’re not asking it to immediately take action against all the defaulters, but it should definitely take action against some of them to send out a message to others.’ The order has come in a plea moved by Paytm seeking protection of its consumers from the fraudulent phishing activities allegedly hosted on the platforms of multiple telecom service providers. Appearing for Paytm, Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave submitted that a timeline of 4 weeks must be imposed on TRAI to ensure that all the telecom operators are registering the headers in compliance with the 2018 Regulations. Mr Dave further argued that TRAI must exercise its power under Section 29 of the TRAI Act to take penal action against those telecoms that are not squarely complying with the 2018 Regulations. ‘TRAI has itself stated in its affidavit that telecoms are not complying with the 2018 regulations, then why no action has been taken so far? If telecoms are not cooperating, they should be seen as collaborators of illegal telemarketers and penal action should be taken against them’, Mr Dave argued. While highlighting that the continuing proliferation of unregistered telemarketers is causing fraud worth of crores every month, Mr Dave submitted that unregistered headers must be removed forthwith to ensure the protection of the poor consumers. Mr Dave said: ‘Due to proliferation of phishing and frauds, consumers are filing FIRs against us (Paytm). Due to lack of penal action, telecoms are treating the regulations too lightly. These telecoms are making hundreds of crores from these unregistered telemarketers.’ Countering these allegations, Senior Advocate Rakesh Dwivedi, who was appearing for TRAI, submitted that the Regulator has taken steps, along with the cooperation of the telecoms, to ensure registration of telemarketers and compliance with the 2018 Regulations. Mr Dwivedi further submitted that TRAI is only concerned with phishing committed through unsolicited commercial calls and it is not the competent authority to investigate other kinds of frauds. Appearing for Airtel, Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal submitted that Airtel has shown 100% compliance with the 2018 Regulations. Mr Sibal further argued that there’s already grievance redressal mechanism in place within the TRAI Reputations. Therefore, if the Petitioner is aggrieved by non-compliance by a particular party, it can approach TRAI and an inquiry committee will be set up to look into the matter. ‘These issues should be amicably resolved’, Mr Sibal submitted. It was further submitted by Mr Sibal that: ‘This is the most technically complex mechanism that has been set up anywhere in the world. Such complex technical matters should be addressed by TRAI itself.’ Apart from Airtel, Vodafone, Idea, Jio and BSNL also submitted before the court that they have been complying with the 2018 Regulations since June 2020.
