The application deadline is Jan. 6, 2017.Currently, YASCers are serving throughout the Anglican Communion, working alongside partners in administration, agriculture, communication, development and education. Among possible placements for 2017-2018 are Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, England, France, Ghana, Haiti, Honduras, Hong Kong, Japan, Jerusalem, Mexico, Panama, Philippines, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan and Tanzania.“The Young Adult Service Corps offers young adults the opportunity to live out their faith in new ways and different contexts,” said Elizabeth Boe, global networking officer for the Episcopal Church. “They commit to spending a year learning from and working, living, and praying with other Episcopal and Anglican communities around the world.”For more information contact Grace Flint, Episcopal Church staff officer for YASC programming, at [email protected] Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Press Release Service Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Africa, Video, Featured Events Director of Music Morristown, NJ By Matthew Davies and Lynette WilsonPosted Dec 9, 2016 Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Don, the one thing that I have learned about nature in my 80 + wierd years is that there are absolutely no absolutes in nature. This means that about the time that you think you have it all figured out things seem to go a tad screwy. But, for me, that is part of the allure of nature, the remarkable unpredictability. As strange as it might sound, the most effective bear scarer is an umbrella! The bumbershoot opening in its face seems to be more than it can take, and it vacates the premises. It always, sometimes, might, possibly could, maybe, but might not work. Again, there are absolutely no absolutes in nature other than the absolute fact that nature is absolutely unpredictable. Now that my young friend is an absolute.

He never abuses his power but allows man, you and I, to make our own choices. Lord God, please help us to bring honor to you in all things and in all ways. May He pour his love and mercy out on you in all that you do. Bless you, Chaz charles towne You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here Reply Great as always Chuck! I can’t begin to imagine how I would react to being face to face with such a powerful creature. What I learned from this column though is that everything I’ve learned about facing a bear before this was wrong. I had always heard that raising your arms and screaming at the animal as you approached it would scare it off. That never seemed like a bright idea and not that I plan on ever facing a critter like this but if I ever do, I know now what to do. Thanks for another great read Chuck and God bless.-Donnie Reply February 13, 2018 at 1:26 pm February 11, 2018 at 10:47 am Jose, thanks so very much.

Much love February 13, 2018 at 9:12 pm Dear NH, Brave? Brave you say? Some folks would call it darned foolishness. In all honestly all it takes is an understanding of the particular animal one is studying at the time, but then, as the old saying goes, “Familiarity breeds contempt!” A good example would be the idiot Timothy Treadwell. He considered himself an expert on the big browns and got himself eaten. He wasn’t brave, just stupid, and the real tragedy was that he got his girlfriend eaten too. It is one thing taking a calculated risk, but when you endanger another person you have pushed the wrong button. Just saying is all. Thanks for the comment my friend, ChazP.S. One thing not to forget, bears eat carrion, therefore playing dead, or fainting,with any bear could result in your serving as a meat dish in Ursa’s next meal. You have a nice day ya hear, C CSG InspirationBy Charles Towne Face the danger!The bear was angry.A four-hundred-pound male, he charged me for the fourth time, finally ending up within ten feet of me. I knew that at this distance if he decided to attack he could be on me in less time than it takes to blink. He raged at me, popping his jaws, cussing me out in bear language, at least that is what I think he was doing. He stood sideways to me in order to make himself appear larger as he slapped the ground and popped his jaws. All of his movements were intended to let me know that he was about the biggest, baddest bear in those parts, and I believed him.I stood there with my arms raised over my head to appear larger as I talked to him in as calm a voice as I could muster. (I am here to attest to the fact that it is not easy to appear calm when faced with such a situation!) Finally, with a little more moaning, threatening me with mayhem all the while, he turned his back and walked away, to disappear in the thick underbrush that surrounded me. I could hear him as he circled me out there in the scrub, and suddenly… all was silent.It was only then that I started breathing again.Contrary to the popular myth, bears don’t growl, but they can sure let you know when they are ticked off. It was one of those extraordinary times in my life when I really felt alive. As a zoo director and breeder of big cats, as well as a wildlife photographer over the years, I have learned some things about myself.I have learned to face the danger.In my early years, I was a runner, but no longer. If I were to turn my back and run away in the above situation it would have invited attack which just might not have been very good for my complexion, if you get my meaning.When we are faced by big challenges, hard decisions, it could be involving personal relationships, a large financial crisis, an issue involving your health, or anything important, it is always best to confront it head-on.It is a fact that when we go before an all-powerful God in prayer we are in the presence of absolute power. At that time, and in that place, the infinite meets with the finite. The bear could have killed me, but our friend God yearns to give us His friendship, and eternal life. Stand still my friend, don’t run; you are in the presence of the living God.Your prayerDear Papa, Holy God, You are awesome in your power, merciful in your love, tender in your compassion, abundant in your grace and generous in your mercy. How can it be that you love me with such an incredible love? Hold me close, wrap me in your love, embrace me and kiss away all of my hurts and help me to bring you pleasure. You created me to be your forever friend and companion and for this, I love you, my heavenly Daddy, in Jesus’ wonderful name I ask it, and for your goodness I praise you, AmenLive fully,Love openly,And make a difference, today February 13, 2018 at 9:11 pm Charles, my favorite part of this article is when you write, “It is a fact that when we go before an all-powerful God in prayer we are in the presence of absolute power. At that time, and in that place, the infinite meets with the finite.” Beautifully said. Remembering that truth will help us have the faith we need to confront problems head-on. Thank you! Oh Gymrat, you really know how to hit the nail on the head! Please, don’t stay out of the woods. This is a place of healing, of drawing near to the genuine. Nature can be a place of quiet rest, of rejuvenation. Thanks so very much for the comment, Chaz charles towne A BEAR!?!?!!! I just try to stay out of the woods. Thanks for the reminder to speak softly so as not to increase the danger of a situation (especially where God already has control). Reply EJ, it is interesting that you say that, and yes my friend, I am sure there is a lesson we can learn about interacting with others. I imagine we could learn to be less forceful, more open. I am sure the bear and all nature considers us very threatening, therefore, in my dealings with humanity I must ask myself, what can I do to draw others to the good in me? To help them to see Christ in me. Help me to bring Joy, peace, and love wherever I go. Thanks EJ, I appreciate the comment, Chaz charles towne Linda my dear, you might have something there! Praying has always seemed to work for me. Usually it was my mama that was doing the praying and her prayers went something like this, “Dear Lord, please protect my idiot son because he obviously doesn’t have the good sense of a goofy, gray gopher, Amen!” For the most part her prayers seemed to have worked. Blessings on you and yours young lady, Unka Chuck Reply Reply Reply charles towne OMG!! Another adventure! I think youare living your 9th life. The word GRATEFUL is surely in your vocabulary. God has such an amazing plan for each of our lives but in your case, it has to be incredible!!May God continue to bless you in all you do. February 13, 2018 at 10:03 am Reply February 13, 2018 at 1:22 am Charles Towne is first and foremost a Christian. An octogenarian, author, journalist, wildlife photographer, naturalist, caregiver, and survivor, his life has been and continues to be, a never-ending adventure filled with possibilities never imagined. He has adopted the philosophy that to Live fully, laugh uproariously, love passionately, and learn like there is no tomorrow, is a formula for a long and joy-filled life. Reply Dimitri my friend, you win. Yes, I agree, the Russian bear is very smart. The boy, after landing so hard on that unicycle seat did us a favor because he was rendered unable to pass on the idiot gene. Chaz charles towne Dimitri, I knew a family here in Florida USA that had a son that was a few bricks shy of a full load, I mean, his elevator didn’t go all the way to the top floor, if you know what I mean. I drove into their driveway just in time to see him ride off the garage roof on his unicycle! Ouch! Now not only was the kid a little goofy, but his chance of siring any little idiots was drastically limited, if you know what I mean. If you tried to teach an American black bear how to ride a unicycle you could end up picking bicycle spokes out of certain orifices that were not intended for bicycle spokes. It isn’t that our bears can’t learn, it is just that they don’t like being told what to do. Russian bears on the other hand, after living under the communist regime for so long are accustomed to being told what to do. And that is your nature story for today, as well as my in depth commentary on politics. Chaz February 12, 2018 at 6:31 am Dear CSG, and not only incredible but fun too! I feel that most people just exist, they seem to drift along, go with the flow if you know what I mean. Floating in one place, never doing anything is so remindful of a septic tank mentality, which, if you get my meaning, stinks! Sometimes we have to swim against the current, live life, accept the extraordinary, the adventure. Please, embrace the peculiar. I would much rather be really alive for the moment, then mediocre for a lifetime. Sometimes we have to march out of step, be bold, begin again, go back to school, challenge yourself, reinvent yourself, today! Yeah, be bold! Blessings on you and yours, Chaz charles towne Reply Please enter your name here Charles you are so brave:) I think I would have passed out if I had been charged by a bear. Possibly, this would work as well since it is viewed as a submissive move?? Lovely story and always great to hear more animal and nature tails. Keep ’em coming! charles towne Reply You know Richard, I don’t think it is so much bears people fear as as it is fear itself. Sadly, we little humans seem to fear so much. We fear cats, rats and bats, and usually for little or no reason. We fear the night, for what might be hiding there. We fear people, spiders, snakes, and death… and things, even God himself. The bible tells us to “fear God, and give glory to Him,” but that fear can be translated as respect. Respect! Hmmm, perhaps that is what it is all about, this fear thing, not so much demoralizing fear as it is appreciation for what might be? Perhaps the object of our fear, whatever it might be, would be better appreciated in the light of respect rather than fear. Oh well, I think we fear too much. Perhaps we should fear less and love more! And by the way, your granddaddy was a wise dude to my way of thinking! Chaz February 11, 2018 at 10:28 am Wee Bee, Big, well I should say He is big.

Reply EJ, ALL i CAN SAY ABOUT THAT IS @#**&%$**#@ That is cattese for “thank you very much.” cHAZ Dimitri Please enter your comment! Another great read Chuck. We have had bears in the yard from time to time but I have always chosen to view them from the inside of the house. As far as fear is concerned, if one has faith in God we are never alone even in the most fearful of situations. Mike, You are more than wise to not press the issue with bears. They are such powerful creatures, powerful and highly intelligent. I have been up close and personal with bears many times. Having spent countless hours with bears. I have seen their power, looked into their eyes and saw something akin to wisdom. Unless someone think me a tad strange with my wisdom comment, any creature that is able to process information in a fraction of a moment, in the blink of an eye, and arrive at a decision almost in that same instant is nothing to be trifled with. It is so very sad that the tribe of man has forgotten how to coexist with nature. I think we would be the better for it if we were to regain this lost gift. Isn’t God wonderful in His power? Thanks for the insightful and thought provoking comment pal. Chaz February 13, 2018 at 9:16 pm February 17, 2018 at 4:37 pm It’s a real comfort to know we don’t have to face the ‘bears’ of life alone, to know there’s a big God facing them with us. charles towne Dear Friend, I know I have explained to you how my grandfather used to take me, a city boy, into the woods to teach me to ” shut up and sit still! ”Only then would I see nature and God’s critters in their natural beauty. I saw chipmonks,raccoons,deer,rabbits, all types of animals but not bears, when I finally learned to be still! What should we have to fear with God on our side? Bears may be a “gray area”, I fear I might run into one that hasn’t read either that article or the Bible!!! February 17, 2018 at 7:27 pm February 13, 2018 at 3:43 pm THE OLD BEAR WAS DOING WHAT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO DO IN THE WOODS THAT DAY! :YOU WERE NOT PART OF THE PICTURE!

For some reason only known to them, folks get the idea that bears are benign creatures, almost in the image of Teddy, Smoky, or Poo. This stereotyping has done a terrible injustice to the family of bear. It makes me think of the mother that rubbed honey all over her little boys face so she could get pictures of a bear licking the honey from the toddler. Luckily a ranger happened on the scene. He prevented a disaster. Yeah, sometimes people can be pretty darned goofy.

Built on a slope, with a view over the Baltic Sea. Situated on a steep, westerly slope, approximately 20m above sea level, below one of Eckernförde’s most popular residential streets, this residence enjoys one of the most stunning views over the bay and the open Baltic Sea.Save this picture!© Hagen StierThe site, 12m in width, 50m in length with an 9m elevation, required access from the upper end. This demanded a special design concept. The unique east view and the desire for sunshine throughout the day, were only a few of the priorities to be considered.Save this picture!© Hagen StierSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Hagen StierMaritime Design with large open Terraces. Obviously, a building had to be planned on a slope, with terraces stretching towards the east. Adequate privacy was of the essence, so each terrace, constructed with an awning, prevented a view over other terraces. The span of the ceilings over the total width of the house enabled an individual design concept for the interior.Save this picture!© Hagen StierSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Hagen StierThe easterly, as well as the adjacent façades were completely glazed, providing a smooth transition between the interior and exterior. The “navigation bridge”, situated on the highest point of the building, with a 3-dimensionally curved roof, completed the “maritime” feeling of the design, further emphasized by the terrace railings.Save this picture!© Hagen StierSave this picture!© Hagen StierInnovative construction and custom made production. In order to carry out such ambitious building design, innovation was of the essence. Free movement between the terraces was possible through vacuum insulation. A special sky light construction, developed for the zenith lighting, was integrated into the terrace planks. A curved roof and the outer façade below had to be pre-constructed in two parts and bound together in the space of one day. This was perhaps the greatest challenge during the project.Save this picture!© Hagen StierThe overall roof, designed like a ship’s hull using a special architecture cad programme, was constructed in sections on CNC coordinated machines, assembled together and GRP laminated.Save this picture!© Hagen StierProject gallerySee allShow less5egg Flawil Apartments / Brechbuehler Walser ArchitektenSelected ProjectsExplore the Colors of the World Through PhotographyArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Eckernförde, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

HIV charities have partnered with health professional bodies, British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH), and British HIV Association to launch a national campaign opposing cuts to HIV services across the country.Support People with HIV: Stop the Cuts has launched in response to the number of local authorities pulling funding from HIV support services. Charities involved include Terrence Higgins Trust, National AIDS Trust, British HIV Association, and METRO.The campaign has written to Secretary of State for Health, Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt. calling for a meeting to discuss the impact of these cuts, demand effective commissioning, adequate funding, and access to support services for all people living with HIV. It also appeals to members of the public to take an e-action to show their support by writing to their local council leader to ask what the council is doing to support local people living with HIV.Yusef Azad, director of strategy, National Aids Trust said:“HIV support services can be the only place where people are open about their status, the only places they can find advice and support, the only place they can talk to other people with HIV. They are an essential component of the long-term care of people with HIV. To remove them would leave a lot of vulnerable people stranded.” 82 total views, 1 views today Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 83 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Tagged with: campaigning Funding Melanie May | 26 February 2016 | News Charities unite in opposition to cuts in HIV support services About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Denied food for several hours by Capitol policeDream Defenders say ‘we’re here to stay’The following statement was released on July 27 by the Dream Defenders who have been holding a sit-in at Gov. Rick Scott’s office in Tallahassee, Fla. since July 16, three days after the ‘no-guilty’ verdict of George Zimmerman in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin:Photo: Imani HenryOn Friday [July 26], Dream Defenders were joined in the Capitol by civil rights leaders and youth from around the country, turning attention to Governor Scott’s refusal to call a special session for Trayvon’s Law. On Saturday afternoon, with over 100 young people – including children and elderly – sleeping in the Capitol, food and water supplies quickly ran low.Given increasing hostility from Capitol police, it became unclear whether or not supporters would be allowed to bring food and supplies, which are all donation-based, into the building“When we were unable access food, people were concerned about whether supplies would last through the weekend. But we know why we are here and we haven’t lost sight of our goals.” said Director Phillip Agnew. “Sooner or later the governor will realize we’re serious and we’re here to stay no matter how much he tries to scare us away.”Capitol police have become growingly antagonistic towards the Dream Defenders this past week, despite numerous attempts by the group to keep relations amicable. However, no matter how uncomfortable the conditions imposed upon the group, Dream Defenders maintain that they will not leave until the governor convenes a special legislative session to consider Trayvon’s Law.Follow @DreamDefenders on TwitterGo to www.peoplespowerassemblies.org for more informationFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this read more
