Timed-Release Vitamins and Daily Devotions

I do fairly well if I have been prescribed a medicine by a doctor, like an antibiotic, but in the vitamin and supplement department, I just don’t do so well.  Even though I know I should be more faithful, for me it is still a struggle. For that reason, I have always preferred those “timed-release” compounds, like Vitamin C – mostly because they are advertised to be taken only once daily, and then they magically release their ingredients on their own, after I’ve already welcomed them into my body. Why do I like that?  Because I don’t have to think about it after I take the vitamin.  No after-lunch, or after-dinner pill to have to remember.Unfortunately, as easy as it seems it should be, I often don’t remember to take that convenient time-released vitamin the next day either. In fact, days can go by before I think, “No… no!  I forgot to take my vitamins… again!”The sad thing is, it is all too easy to view my devotional life the same way – with a “timed-release” approach to prayer and reading, whereby I read a chapter one morning, but then get busy during the day. “But hey, I had my devotions this morning! I’m okay!”  But, the next morning, I can find myself waking and starting off on a fast note, bypassing my quiet time all together, yet somehow thinking that the benefit of yesterday’s reading and prayer time will just continue to “time-release” itself perpetually into my heart.There is no doubt that the Word of God is more powerful than we can imagine or even comprehend. But that doesn’t mean we are to treat it as optional, the way I tend to treat my supplements.What a model Jesus set before us. Though He was the Son of the Living God, He Himself saw the need to regularly get up early and seek the face of His Father. He needed that daily communion. So do I. We all need it.Someone once said, “there is no better time than now…”  This very moment is the best time to begin to treat my devotional life differently. Time to lose that timed-release mentality. My devotional time with God is much more like the air I breathe than like my daily vitamins. After all, I never forget to breathe.Mike Gilland is Operations Manager for The Shepherd Radio Network, a group of radio stations in Florida that features the “Christian Teach/Talk” format.

The project started from a small two storey building located at the end of a narrow and deep lot, integrated in an uncharacterized urban area of the city. It was from this context that the spatial organization of the house was developed, being defined by 3 concrete volumes strategically positioned from the existing volumetry, creating a patio and taking advantage of the interiority resulting from this disposition. These volumes, which concentrate all the support areas of the house, define, among themselves, the main living areas of the house.Save this picture!© Filipa BernardoSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Filipa BernardoThe sequence of spaces organized around the patio follows an increasing gradation of the relation between inner and outer space, depending on the transition amid the private and social spaces of the house.

£4.95m fund opens to help sector improve digital capabilities

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 Charities and other civil society organisations are invited to apply to a new £4.95m fund aimed at helping to improve the sector’s digital capabilities.The fund is a partnership between The National Lottery Community Fund and the Centre for The Acceleration of Social Technology (CAST), supported by the Catalyst network, and offers charities funding and expert support worth up to £60,000 each to spend on projects.The Catalyst and The National Lottery Community Fund COVID-19 Digital Response is open to any social organisation that is part of a formal or informal network of ten or more other charities, and is committed to proactively sharing learnings within their networks.The partnership prioritises those that have been disproportionately impacted as a result of Covid-19 and applicants must also be working with one of nine key groups facing disproportionate challenges as a result of the crisis: older people; those pushed into crisis; people in medical or end of life care; people who experience health inequalities, loneliness and social isolation or poor mental health; children and young people; disabled people and families hit hardest.Applicants must be able to show that they have a network of other charities that will be able to share their work, and benefit from it. The scheme’s partners are particularly interested in receiving applications from user-led organisations and those representing ethnic minority communities, LGBT+, disabled and other marginalised communities.Funding will be a mixture of direct grants and payment for support from digital agencies. Two funding avenues will be simultaneously available for application: a four-week ‘Discovery’ phase, in which a small amount of funding will pay for charities to work together in cohorts with a support partner to understand and research the problem they are trying to address, and a ten-week ‘Development’ phase, in which charities will work with a designated support partner to develop a digital solution.Not all charities that go through the Discovery phase will move onto the Development phase of the project, and charities that can show they have already been through a Discovery process can bypass this stage and move directly to Development.Applications are open now at the Catalyst site. Those for the Discovery phase will close on 7 September, and those for the Development phase on 20 September. The National Lottery Community Fund has committed £4.95 million to the partnership, with £1.75 million made available in direct grants, and the remaining £3.2 million allocated to fund the expert support.Commenting on the scheme, CAST’s Director Dan Sutch said:“Covid-19, and social distancing in particular, has demonstrated the importance of digital in ensuring social organisations can continue to serve the needs of their communities. And we’ve also seen clear evidence that organisations that are better equipped to use digital, data and design have been able to respond more quickly to the new needs and environment in which we’re operating.“This scheme will enable charities to access funding to dedicate their time and focus to developing their digital practice, and vitally, access the support of digital partners from across the Catalyst network who are experts, not only in digital, data and design, but in supporting charities. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have an opportunity to intentionally design how we can best take advantage of digital, data and design to most effectively serve communities across England.” Melanie May | 19 August 2020 | News £4.95m fund opens to help sector improve digital capabilities Advertisement  465 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11  464 total views,  2 views today Tagged with: COVID-19 Digital Funding 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.

Reproductive justice takes on the Trump-Pence agenda

first_imgOrganizing for the Women’s March on Washington on Jan. 21 has been deep and massive. As of this writing, over 150 “partners” are listed on Local marches are planned in multiple cities in 48 states and 26 countries. There is at least one march on every continent, with many in Europe and some in Central and South America.After the defeat of a woman running for U.S. president by a man who boasted of his coarse sexism and blatant misogyny, many women felt compelled to assert their rights. While the J21 march theme is very general — affirming women’s human rights — the diversity of issues represented by march partners reflects the broad scope of religious, educational, health, social justice, legal and economic action groups in this country.Reproductive justice under severe attackSignificant J21 partners are the Center for Reproductive Rights, Naral Pro-Choice America and Planned Parenthood. All are particularly concerned with attacks on reproductive justice that began as soon as the 115th Congress convened. House Speaker Paul Ryan announced on Jan. 5 that the goal of defunding Planned Parenthood was part of the impending budget bill, which would attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act. No replacement program for the ACA, also known as Obamacare, has been proposed.Planned Parenthood has been targeted by the right wing because it is a national provider of abortions, though there has been no federal funding for abortions since the Hyde Amendment passed in 1976. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood provides 2.5 million women and men with a variety of reproductive health care services annually, including birth control and cancer screenings as well as tests for sexually transmitted diseases.Those who oppose legal, safe, accessible abortion make defunding Planned Parenthood sound deceptively easy. They would just cut funding for Medicaid reimbursements. According to Planned Parenthood, about 75 percent of the $553 million it received in federal reimbursements in 2014 was through Medicaid; two-thirds of its patients rely on Medicaid for health care. (Time, Jan. 7)In fact, what defunding the organization means in human costs is that the poorest of poor women and men would have to pay out of pocket, look elsewhere for services or go without. Mostly affected would be poor women, women of color, youth, immigrants, women with disabilities, survivors of domestic violence and rural residents — those who rely on Planned Parenthood for essential health care.There are no alternatives to Planned Parenthood. Existing city health centers are unequipped to give such reproductive health care. Last year, when anti-abortion zealots gave Congress a list of alternative providers of reproductive health care, a quick survey exposed the list as a sham. Podiatrists, optometrists and the Salvation Army are not adequate providers.Responding to the defunding threat in Time magazine, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, was quoted as saying, “You can’t completely end a public health care system in America and not think about what the impact will be on the folks who have least access to care.” Judith Solomon, vice president for health policy at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, added that defunding Medicaid support for Planned Parenthood would dismantle “decades of work to ensure that low-income women have ready access to family planning.”Repercussions of repealing the ACAOne reason the right wing can’t wait to get rid of the ACA is that its coverage subsidizes all costs of contraceptives. This created havoc after some companies raised “religious objections” to covering birth control. In 2014, the Supreme Court ruled in their favor. But a work-around resulted, and the ACA still does not require payment for contraceptives — a real bonus for millions of women.Without such coverage, many unplanned pregnancies would occur, leading to increased abortions, which have been declining. The decrease is not due to government restrictions on abortions, but to long-term contraceptives. A Guttmacher Institute study noted in March 2016: “The overall rate of unintended pregnancies dropped 18 percent between 2008 and 2011 — its lowest in 30 years.” The study concluded: “These findings have major implications for the U.S. abortion debate as … they validate that supporting and expanding women’s access to contraceptive services leads to a lower incidence of abortion.”Another reason the ACA has been targeted is because it provides reproductive health care to all women. But its repeal would immediately cut health care access for 20 million people who gained coverage under it. “Repeal could lead to increases in the number of newly uninsured [U.S.] Americans, the number of people facing difficulties from pre-existing conditions, the size of the federal deficit, and how much money people will have to pay for their health care.” (Politifact, Jan. 5)Repeal would also remove millions of low-income women from Medicaid, because that program was expanded under the law. ACA is also linked to the Medicare program, and its repeal would drastically increase costs for 57 million seniors and the disabled. According to a Kaiser Foundation brief: “The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated that full repeal of the ACA would increase Medicare spending by $802 billion from 2016 to 2025 … by restoring higher payments to health care providers and Medicare Advantage plans. The increase in Medicare spending would likely lead to higher Medicare premiums, deductibles, and cost sharing for beneficiaries.” (, Dec. 13, 2016)Another attack on reproductive justice in the Trump-Pence agenda is to make the Hyde Amendment permanent. But All* Above All, a coalition to overturn the Hyde Amendment led by young people and people of color, launched a new campaign against that on Jan. 3. The “We will be Bold, We won’t be Punished” campaign answers the Trump-Pence plan to shame, bully and punish poor women who have abortions.The campaign was launched to reinforce an open letter to Trump by 100 members of Congress on Dec. 19, calling for the elimination of the Hyde Amendment. The letter promotes the EACH Woman Act, introduced by Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) in 2015, which seeks to lift the ban. “By disrespecting poor women, [anti-abortion] politicians are disrespecting all women — and we will not stand for that,” stated Kierra Johnson, executive director of Unite for Reproductive and Gender Equity, in a Jan. 3 A*AA release.‘Rallying cry for resistance’Calling the campaign a “rallying cry for resistance,” Destiny Lopez, A*AA co-director, noted in a Jan. 9 release, “There are many reasons to oppose Hyde: because you support abortion rights, because you think poor women shouldn’t be discriminated against, or simply because you don’t think politicians should interfere with our personal decisions by taking away coverage.”Will women-hating, racist, patronizing patriarch Trump and rabidly right-wing evangelical Pence get the message on Jan. 21? Probably not.What’s most important is that the march is calling into the streets thousands of women of all nationalities, ages, range of physical abilities, gender expressions and identities. Many will be marching for the first time. Millions of women in the U.S. and worldwide will be inspired by this solidarity and determination. Millions will be energized to continue fighting for women’s social and economic rights — for full women’s liberation.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

TCU’s football season has come to an end due to COVID-19

first_imgTCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Twitter Marissa Stacy is a journalism major from Indianapolis, Indiana. Marissa enjoys traveling to new places, spending time with friends and finding great places to eat around Fort Worth. Marissa Stacy ReddIt printTCU football will be ending its season the same way it began, with a canceled game. The Mercari Texas Bowl, set for December 31, has been canceled because TCU doesn’t have enough players to reach the Big 12 player threshold. According to a statement made by Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jeremiah Donati, “Over the last 24 hours, between a combination of COVID-19 related issues, injuries and other circumstances, we have fallen below the established Big 12 Conference threshold for student-athlete availability that we have abided by all season.” The Big 12 set the threshold at 53 players at the beginning of the 2020 season, according to its website. This is the second game TCU has had to cancel this season due to COVID-19 complications, with the first being the season opener against SMU. The Horned Frogs were supposed to face the Arkansas Razorbacks in the bowl game. The Razorbacks’ football coach, Sam Pittman, released a statement writing, “We were excited and wanted to go play TCU in the Texas Bowl, but we certainly understand the issues in the TCU program.” He also noted the Razorback team had no positive tests. The Texas Bowl is not the only bowl game called off because of COVID-19. The Frisco Bowl, between SMU and UTSA, and the Music City Bowl, between Missouri and Iowa, have also been canceled. Donati also wrote that “While we have experienced these issues all season, the past 24 hours have been too much to overcome on such short notice for Thursday’s game.”The global pandemic has caused many events and activities to be canceled this year. There are now 19.2 million COVID-19 cases in the United States, according to the CDC. Dr. Anthony Fauci has said he believes the worst is still yet to come in regards to COVID-19.Fauci predicted that in the next few weeks the pandemic may continue to get worse from the holiday season and winter months.

Some foreign television journalists also complained that they were prevented from relaying their footage to viewers abroad. Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Belarus to go further Receive email alerts Newscenter_img The worldwide press freedom organisation recalled that President Alexander Lukashenko is on its international list of press freedom “predators”.Trouble broke out in central Minsk on the evening of 19 October 2004 as hundreds of opposition demonstrators rallied to condemn the results of legislative elections and the constitution referendum, that allows the president to run for a third consecutive term in office.A cameraman with Russian NTV television Konstantin Morozov, was beaten up by anti-riot police inside a building where security forces had taken opposition leader Anatoly Lebedko. The journalist was thrown to the ground and kicked repeatedly. His camera was destroyed and witnesses described seeing him with his face covered in blood. Vladimir Koscin, a cameraman with Russian REN TV, was also brutally beaten.Among around 50 people detained during the night was AP photographer Sergeï Grits. He was immediately released after saying he was a journalist. “They told me that reporters were obstructing the work of the police and that I should have kept further back. I replied that if I had done that I would have been unable to take any photos,” he said.Polish journalist Hanna Harasimowicz of Informator Kulturalny magazine was arrested on 16 October in Bykhau in the east of the country while visiting a polling station. She said elections officials became extremely agitated when she asked them how many people had voted during the week. She was questioned for one hour about why she had such an interest in electoral procedure.Several foreign TV correspondents said it had been impossible to broadcast their footage on 19 and 20 October.A crew from Russian Perviy Kanal television said on 20 October that they had been unable to get out footage of a second day of opposition demonstrations. Belarus radio and television that normally relays footage claimed there had been a technical hitch.
