Since I wrote a book on Cancer Care and was an oncology chaplain for a time, I was very proactive and insisted that the surgery be done ASAP. My Bishop said I had discovered the cure for terminal uniqueness and I quess he was right. I decided since stress plays a part in CA not to pursue my PhD even though I had been accepted at a seminary in Mass. So I am alive and well today after 25 years. I worry sometimes but at 75 I now I have been very fortunate. I was back at work two weeks later and even had the termacity to accept a call to be shortlisted for the Suffragan Bishop of Philadelpha with drains hanging from my side. Ah well Glad to hear your’ well peace and go for it Nancy Platt Fr.Michael Neal says: Director of Music Morristown, NJ Rector Belleville, IL Rector Knoxville, TN Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI October 5, 2012 at 5:23 pm Thank you for writing. I too am a priest and a stage 3 breast cancer survivor. I learned a great deal through my experience of cancer and my congregation was amazing. Your article has finally motivated me to write my as yet unwritten article about what can happen in a congregation when the rector gets seriously ill. Course Director Jerusalem, Israel December 29, 2012 at 7:37 pm Catherine… thank you for sharing your wisdom and journey. I too am a Stage III infiltrative ductal carcinoma of the breast. I want to affirm your thoughts. I am a priest of 7 years and an RN of 36 years. I am a straight shooter when it comes to dealing with life and the living thereof. I am not one for platitudes or cliches`. Nor did I feel that your commentary presented them. I AM a better person for having had cancer. My husband and my daughters ARE better people because I have had cancer. We have made a tough journey together and have ended up in a place far better than we would have had I not had this, regarding dealing with the living of life and dealing with the reality of death, and preventative health care. The whole nine yards. I have been blessed by the kindness and love of strangers and a community of the faithful that have renewed my faith and my joy. May you continue to be blessed now and always. I would hope that those who have not had a healing journey through the cancer experience get cancer care counseling or grief counseling to deal with the myriad of emotions this diagnosis creates. October 5, 2012 at 6:35 pm Are you kidding me? My husband died from cancer and left me a widow at the age of 45. He left a grieving son, 14, and a grieving daughter, 11. I am a cradle Episcopalian who is not angry at God. I am angry at people like you who say that I am stronger because of the cancer and my loss. I watched my husband endure three operations, two rounds of chemotherapy, a month of radiation. He died a slow, painful death. I do not in a million years believe that this was God’s plan to teach me or my children grace or love or community. Cancer happens and it sucks. I do, however, believe that God loves me and mourns my loss with me without trying to reveal any cliches or platitudes.

Your love of God is so strong, especially after all that you have been through. Your strength and courage speaks a multitude. I helped found a site called healtheo360.com which allows people with chronic conditions to share their stories via video & storytelling. I think your story is extremely uplifting and motivational and we would love to have you join our community & share your story with our members. Please take a minute to visit our site & if you like what you see I would be grateful if you signed up and became a member. Everything offered on our site is 100% free, we are just trying to raise awareness for debilitating conditions. Healtheo360 was founded earlier this year by David Duplay after his 32 year old sister-in-law was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. After unsuccessful efforts with cancer support group meetings, due to the widening age gap between herself and other stage 4 breast cancer patients, the family was forced to search for other outlets of social support. This was the birth of Healtheo360. I should also mention that Dave’s mother is suffering from mid-stage Alzheimer’s and his father, who is in good health, is her caregiver for the time being until she will require supervised care in a facility. Thank you for sharing your story!

Two years ago this Thursday, on Oct. 4, 2010, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.My prayer, as I was listening to the doctor say the words, “invasive, lobular carcinoma,” came suddenly and clearly: “Gracious God be with me through this journey, allow me to walk it with dignity and grace. And help me to be grateful, whatever may be.”Thanks be to God, that prayer was answered — and then some.As I awoke in the recovery room at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, I was so overwhelmed, so overcome with gratitude that the only prayer I could utter through the tears was “thank you.”Thank you.Thank you for the presence of a world class cancer institute in my backyard.Thank you for the newly arrived surgeon, who full of smarts and compassion, full of determination and grace, removed the cancer from me and painstakingly poked and prodded until she was sure — absolutely, positively sure — that all of the cancer was gone. That anything that looked or felt suspicious was removed. That the margins were checked, double checked and triple checked. That lymph nodes were felt and if not absolutely normal in texture and appearance, were also removed.Thank you, God, for the community of family and friends huddled in that waiting room who sat for hours, praying, laughing, crying and worrying. Hoping for the best, fearing the worst and believing. Believing that whatever the outcome, they, through the grace of God, would help me get through it all.Thank you God for the two communities of faith I serve — people who prayed me through that day, who prayed in the days leading up to it and all the days that followed. A community of love that walked with me in good times and in bad, who rejoiced with every victory and lamented every set back. A community whose trust in the peace of God, truly surpasses all understanding.Thank you God for faith. For the indescribable, ever present belief that whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure comes from the love of God, poured out for us through Jesus Christ. (Paul’s Epistle to the Philippians).Thank you, God, for cancer.Yes, thank you for cancer.Because of cancer I learned lessons I didn’t know I needed to learn. Because of cancer I discovered a depth of love, faith and gratitude I never knew existed. Because of cancer, I learned that bad news is best handled when infused with the Good News. The Good News of Faith, the Good News of Love, the Good News of Gratitude.There are thousands upon thousands of people who are diagnosed with breast cancer each and every year. Not all the outcomes are as good as mine. People die, people suffer, people mourn. Children grow up without mothers, spouses grow old alone, friends are left with holes in their hearts.Cancer is not for sissies. Cancer is not fun. Cancer stinks. But through the grace of God and the power of prayer and the faith of a community, cancer made me a better priest, a better pastor, a better person.On Oct. 18, I, along with two sister priests and a deacon, all of us breast cancer survivors, will lead an open service of Healing, Hope, Gratitude and Remembrance for all those affected by Breast Cancer. The service will take place at the Episcopal Diocese of Western New York Ministry Center. People of all faiths or no faith are invited. We will sing, we will shout “hallelujah,” we will lament. For Breast Cancer, though it has personally given me much, has taken way too much from far too many.Breast Cancer is treatable, and early detection is the key. In my family alone five have been diagnosed early enough to be treated quickly and in some cases, aggressively. It has worked. So ladies, get those mammograms, do self-exam and, if you hear the news I heard two years ago, may you, through the power of pray and the fellowship of community, be filled with gratitude and health, all the days of your life.— The Rev. Catherine B. Dempesy has been an Episcopal priest for four years.

Please enter your email address here In the first major land battle of the Civil War, a large Union force under General Irvin McDowell is routed by a Confederate army under General Pierre G.T. Beauregard.Three months after the Civil War erupted at Fort Sumter, Union military command still believed that the Confederacy could be crushed quickly and with little loss of life. In July, this overconfidence led to a premature offensive into northern Virginia by General McDowell. Searching out the Confederate forces, McDowell led 34,000 troops–mostly inexperienced and poorly trained militiamen–toward the railroad junction of Manassas, located just 30 miles from Washington, D.C. Alerted to the Union advance, General Beauregard massed some 20,000 troops there and was soon joined by General Joseph Johnston, who brought some 9,000 more troops by railroad.On the morning of July 21, hearing of the proximity of the two opposing forces, hundreds of civilians–men, women, and children–turned out to watch the first major battle of the Civil War. The fighting commenced with three Union divisions crossing the Bull Run stream, and the Confederate flank was driven back to Henry House Hill. However, at this strategic location, Beauregard had fashioned a strong defensive line anchored by a brigade of Virginia infantry under General Thomas J. Jackson. Firing from a concealed slope, Jackson’s men repulsed a series of Federal charges, winning Jackson his famous nickname “Stonewall.”Meanwhile, Confederate cavalry under J.E.B. Stuart captured the Union artillery, and Beauregard ordered a counterattack on the exposed Union right flank. The rebels came charging down the hill, yelling furiously, and McDowell’s line was broken, forcing his troops in a hasty retreat across Bull Run. The retreat soon became an unorganized flight, and supplies littered the road back to Washington. Union forces endured a loss of 3,000 men killed, wounded, or missing in action while the Confederates suffered 2,000 casualties. The scale of this bloodshed horrified not only the frightened spectators at Bull Run but also the U.S. government in Washington, which was faced with an uncertain military strategy in quelling the “Southern insurrection.”For more information on this day in history, go here.last_img read more

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Cadbury staff have seen more than 9,000 books shipped to Ghana in West Africa after a company-wide appeal was launched to improve education in the cocoa-growing nation. The Books for Ghana appeal was launched in 2006 and after a second year of collecting, Cadbury Schweppes has given a further boost to the appeal by allocating more than £9,000 for the construction of six community libraries in some of the most deprived villages of Ghana. Books collected by Cadbury staff will arrive in Ghana on June 22nd, and will eventually be housed in the new libraries. It is hoped the libraries will increase the educational opportunities available to children, with the potential to build more libraries in the next few years.

Gundry issued the following statement regarding the passage of Proposition 30:“I am pleased that Californians approved Proposition 30 and chose to invest in the K-12 and higher education institutions that define our state. Despite the passage of this measure, the fiscal situation in PUSD remains dire. Proposition 30 does not bring new money to the district but rather prevents us from losing more this school year. The combination of a structural deficit and declining enrollment will force the district to make an estimated $10.3 – $12 million in cuts for the 2013-2014 school year depending on future tax revenue from the state.”“Proposition 30 prevents automatic cuts to this school year and keeps state funding formulas from decreasing further but did not address the damage that has been done over the last several years. Over the last five years, revenue that PUSD has received from the state has decreased by $35.7 million or 17.6 Percent. Student enrollment has dropped by an estimated 10.5% over that same period. Multimillion dollar cuts have depleted our reserves. One-time federal funds and other grants have lapsed.”“As a community, we must consider every option to maintain the fiscal viability of the district today and into the future. Two of the associations that represent district employees agreed to contingency language before the election that allow a limited number of work furloughs to take affect in 2013. We also need the United Teachers of Pasadena and California School Employees Association Local 434 to partner with us. It is critical that together we find a solution that will allow us to continue to provide a high quality educational experience for all PUSD students and keep as many of our hard working personnel employed as possible.”“I will continue work with the Board of Education to examine all possible austerity measures to make sure that this district is solvent for next year as well as years to come. I urge the public to stay informed and involved as we discuss the fiscal future of the Pasadena Unified School District. The decisions before us will irrevocably affect the future of public education in our community.”For full details, view this message on the web. Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

The authors concluded based on those estimates that “we do not have adequate policies in place to support the rental surge and adequate affordable rental housing and homeownership for all, regardless of race and ethnicity.”The report examines the role of millennials in the housing market over the next 15 years. Millennials, widely viewed by economists as a key driver to homeownership over the coming years, are expected to choose renting more than homeownership in the next 15 years. UI estimates that only 38 percent of millennials will own a home by 2030 when they have reached their prime homebuying age – compared with 38 percent of baby boomers who owned homes when they were the same age in the 1990s. The study also found that the pace at which people create new households, known as the headship rate, has been steadily declining since for every age group except the oldest Americans since reaching its peak in 1980 and will continue declining for the next 15 years.Also according to the UI, 43 percent of new households formed from 2010 to 2030 will be Hispanic, compared to 18 percent that will be White. More than half of the new homeowners are expected to be Hispanic, compared to only 7 percent that are expected to be White. The percentage of non-White households being formed will greatly increase in the next 15 years; UI estimates that 77 percent of the 11.6 million new households formed between 2010 and 2020 will be non-White. That number jumps to 88 percent of the 10.4 million new households formed between 2020 and 2030. The homeownership rate for Hispanics is expected to increase from 46 percent to 48 percent from 2000 to 2030, while the rate for African-Americans is expected to drop during that same 30-year period from 46 percent to 40 percent.”The gap between Hispanics’ and African Americans’ homeownership rates will grow,” the authors of the study said. “African Americans were hit hardest in the housing crisis and will see a large decline in their homeownership rates regardless of economic growth.”The UI estimates that by 2030, 74 percent of homeowners over age 65 will be White, substantially higher than 56 percent of those under 65 that are projected to be White.Overall, from 2010 to 2030, UI estimates there will be four million more renters than homeowners while the homeownership rate falls from 65.1 percent down to 61.3 percent during that 20-year period. In that time, 22 million new households will need homes to rent or buy; UI estimates that 13 million of those will rent while nine million will buy. Also, the homeownership rate among 35- to 44-year-olds is expected to be 55.2 percent in 2030, which is a decline from 67.4 percent 40 years earlier in 1990.In order to increase the homeownership rates in the next 15 years, UI recommends three policy changes: Encourage the building of suitable rental housing to meet demand; expanding mortgage credit availability to encourage homeownership, which will in turn reduce the shortage of rental housing; and develop policies that will allow seniors to keep their homes, “as most want to do.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

New York Fed: Snapshot of Consumer Housing Expectations

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / New York Fed: Snapshot of Consumer Housing Expectations Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport. He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s 2019 Survey of Consumer Expectations Housing Survey shows that U.S. households expect home prices to rise at a slower price when compared to last year.A large majority of households still view housing as a good financial investment, although the share believing housing is a “very good investment” declined across all regions, according to the survey.“The U.S. economy is still in a very good place,” said John Williams, President and CEO of the New York Federal Reserve. “We’re seeing very strong job growth. Very low unemployment and continued growth into this year.”The survey also concluded that the majority of renters still view obtaining a mortgage is difficult, but the share believing it is easy rose above 21% for the first time since 2014.The survey, which is part of the broader Survey of Consumer Expectations, has been conducted annually since 2014.Williams said one of the biggest reasons the economy has not seen more growth over the past few years is because the housing sector has “lagged relative to its historical patterns.”New York Fed reports there are approximately 10.7 million fewer households in 2016 than there were in 2004.According to the report, the average home-price-change expectation at both the one- and five-year horizons fell when compared to 2018. The average one-year change in home prices in 2019 was 3.6%, down from last year’s 4.6% and the second-lowest level since 2014.Five-year growth expectations average 2% annually, which is approximately 1% lower than last year.The average probability of home prices decreasing at the five-year horizon jumped to 29% in 2019 from 27% in 2018.

While taking into record the various measures already undertaken by the Central and Delhi Government, the Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Hari Shankar highlighted that persons who are responding on the helpline must be trained about possible remedies of the common difficulties of the complainants and such a mechanism must be brought into force by which prompt action can be taken forthwith. If the person operating the helpline is inefficient, he can be changed. The court further observed that: ‘We expect from the respondents that the provisions contained in the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005 shall be effectively implemented by the Respondents. All the helplines and WhatsApp numbers etc. which are mentioned herein above in detail shall be kept functional properly and they shall respond to whatever calls or messages they are receiving. If the affected persons face any difficulties in reaching the Nodal Officers, or in any other respect, it shall always be open to them, to contact the DSLSA, which assures us, that they will take all due steps to come to their aid.’ The order has come in a writ petition seeking protection of women from domestic violence during the lockdown by strict implementation of the provisions of the Domestic Violence Act. While highlighting the spike in the domestic violence cases during the lockdown, the Petitioner submitted that only 17 Protection Officers are not adequate for such a large population of Delhi. Moreover, no mass campaigning has been done till date and no efforts have been undertaken for mass outreach. The Petitioner further argued that the remedies regarding the domestic violence available on the website are of no help to the poor, down-trodden and illiterate as they have no access to these online remedies. While pointing out the steps already taken by the government, the Petitioner gave the following recommendations to the court: The number of Protection Officers may be increased; There must be wide publication through various modes of electronic and print media; Helpline numbers may be widely published in several newspapers and in any other methodology that can be easily adopted; If any complaint is filed, immediate action should be taken; and emergency passes may be issued to the Protection Officers; Dedicated teams including women officers may be formed. Appearing for the Central Government, ASG Maninder Acharya informed the court that the following measures have been taken by the government so far to address the issue of domestic violence during lockdown: On March 25, an Advisory was issued by the Ministry of Women and Child Development to Chief Secretaries/ Administrators of all States/ UTs and District Collectors/ District Magistrates of all districts regarding One Stop Centres and Women Helplines (WHL-181) to remain operational during the COVID-19 lockdown period. Emergency Response Support System over the short code 112 is also available for emergency rescue and support to women facing or apprehending violence and that the Protection Officers would continue to provide their services. Apart from sensitizing the Protection Officers, four hours long webinar was conducted by the Ministry of Women and Child Development wherein special sessions were held by eminent experts from AIIMS and NALSA on psychological and legal counseling and such other matters to provide guidance to the frontline functionaries for assisting women affected by difficult circumstances including domestic violence. Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in collaboration with “NIMHANS” has started a helpline 080 – 46110007 to provide psychological support to victims of domestic violence. National Commission for Women (NCW) has introduced a complaints portal for registering complaints of women facing domestic violence and also launched a special WhatsApp number – 7217735372 for the same. Advisory dated 30.01.2020 has also been issued by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting to all private satellite TV channels and FM Radio channels to give adequate publicity to the ERSS [121] on women safety and persons in distress. In addition to this, it was also informed to the court that both the DSLSA and Delhi Commission for Women have set up helplines and WhatsApp numbers for providing legal aid and advice to women in distress, upon receiving a call or a text. In addition to this, transit passes are being provided to the Protection Officers. Moreover, DCW submitted, in serious assault/sexual assault cases, Crisis Intervention Centre (CIC) through rape crisis cell counsellors accompany the aggrieved person to the police station, hospital, etc. After taking all these submissions into record, the court observed that adequate steps have been initiated by the Respondents and the court doesn’t see any reason to further monitor the case. However, the court did highlight that the Respondents are expected to look into the suggestion of appointing temporary Protection Officers. Moreover, the Respondents are expected to modify the steps already undertaken to reflect the present needs of the society.
