Cathy Deats to the diocesan leadership team as regional canon to the eastern region.A native of Connecticut, Deats graduated from the University of Connecticut with a B.S. and M.S.W., a doctorate from the Hunter School of Social Work and an M.Div. from Drew University’s Theological School. She has worked extensively in leadership positions in the churches she served in both New Jersey and North Carolina. In the latter, Deats has served as associate rector at St. Paul’s, Cary, and interim rector at Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount.She also has experience as a sexton, tax preparer, college faculty member, truck stop chaplain, sign language interpreter, social worker and psychotherapist.“Cathy’s vast experience will be a gift to those working with her in the east region,” says the Rt. Rev. Anne Hodges-Copple, bishop diocesan pro tempore for the Diocese of North Carolina. “Her petite frame is in inverse proportion to her giant tool kit. It contains experience in urban and rural communities, all of which were diverse and multicultural. She brings not just a theological background, but a degree and experience as a licensed clinical social worker. This is a canon who packs a punch!”As regional canon, Deats says she hopes to work to heal divisions without compromising justice, helping others recognize the operational nature of systems and how they can be used for good (or ill), and to preach powerfully about the love of God as well as the responsibility to attend to one’s baptismal promises.“I have been so lucky to work side by side with so many folks who understand ‘love God, love your neighbor, change the world’ and then actually do it,” says Deats. “I’m excited to collaborate with congregations in the eastern region of the diocese, learn more about their needs, visions and goals, and then getting to work making them happen.”Deats joined the diocesan team on May 1 on a part-time basis as she completed her tenure at St. Paul’s.

Ovarian cancer action appoints new Chief Executive

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Ovarian cancer action appoints new Chief Executive Howard Lake | 5 June 2008 | News Ovarian cancer action, the UK’s leading ovarian cancer charity, has appointed Peter Reynolds as Chief Executive. He joins the charity from Children with Leukaemia, where he was Deputy Chief Executive.Peter brings over twenty years experience of working in the commercial and charity sectors to Ovarian cancer action. Over the past eight years, he has held senior management roles within two organisations with a focus on cancer, Children with Leukaemia and Breakthrough Breast Cancer, where he was the Director of Fundraising and Communications.He comments on his ambitions for Ovarian cancer action: “Ovarian cancer devastates the lives of thousands of women and their families every year in this country – and survival rates remain shockingly poor. Ovarian cancer action has already made great strides in the fight against the disease and I am looking forward to building on those achievements in the future.”Ovarian cancer action aims to improve women’s chances of survival through better awareness and world-class research. The charity has made significant progress in ensuring that research into the disease is prioritised and that more women and GPs are aware of the symptoms of the disease.…ENDS…Editor’s notes:o Ovarian cancer action is dedicated to improving survival rates for ovarian cancer through funding research, raising awareness and giving a voice.o Ovarian cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK after breast, lung and bowel. 7,000 women are diagnosed in the UK every year and 12 die every day. UK survival rates have NOT improved in 20 years remaining low at 30%, compared with an increase to 80% for breast cancer. If diagnosed at early stage, women have up to a 95% chance of survival, but alarmingly many women do not know what symptoms to look out for.o In 2006, the Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre was opened, which is the first research centre of its kind in the UK. The Centre is a collaboration between Hammersmith Hospital, Imperial College London, The Royal Marsden Hospital and the Institute of Cancer Research and it looks at fundamental biology, early detection and new and improved treatments.  32 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Management Recruitment / people About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Report from Puerto Rico — Part 1: Organizing against earthquakes and austerity

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this On Jan. 8, WW reporter Phebe Eckfeldt interviewed Alberto Barreto Cardona, a leading member of Partido Mundo Obrero/Workers World Party. Barreto spoke about his recent travels from Jan. 1 to 28 in his home island of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rican activists Oscar López Rivera (left) and Alberto Barreto on Calle la Resistencia (Resistance Street) in old San Juan, during a Jan. 20 demonstration denouncing both the colonial government’s negligence in meeting the people’s needs and the neoliberal program of the imperialist PROMESA Board.The southern coast of Puerto Rico was the epicenter of a 6.4 magnitude earthquake on Jan. 7. The same area of the island was devastated by a 5.9 quake on Jan. 11, with a 5.0 magnitude quake hitting the area on Feb. 4. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, between Dec. 28 and Jan. 15, Puerto Rico suffered over 1,280 earthquakes, with more than two dozen magnitude 4.5 or greater. Workers World:  How are people dealing with the earthquakes? How are they organizing themselves?Alberto Barreto Cardona:  It is important to notice even before the earthquake I could still see the damage that [2017 Hurricane] Maria did to the Puerto Rican infrastructure and also the grievances of the people about the lack of motivation from the government to intervene and improve the quality of life on the island. For instance, the people have discovered there are many warehouses all around the island with resources that were never delivered — that could have alleviated  people’s conditions..When the [first] earthquake happened,  there was already a lack of faith among the people in the government to be proactive. The majority of those organizing the camps for the poor — the medical volunteers, the nurses, the social workers, the psychologists — were all volunteers. Our own people were taking care of our people. There was a clear movement of solidarity in all parts of Puerto Rico, including the land where the camps were. In the aftermath of the earthquakes I went to the camps in the south, to a town called Ponce, near the epicenter of the earthquake in Guanica. There is doubt whether this earthquake was caused by nature. There are some people who believe that there is an interest in exploring oil in the Caribbean, and perhaps some clandestine process may have contributed to this.  I cannot testify to this because I do not have scientific evidence or information.  But other islands in the Caribbean, like Cuba, have experienced a major earthquake.   It is surprising that Puerto Rico is shaking, Cuba is shaking, Jamaica is shaking. Is it nature or are other factors involved here?  WW: Are people living outside now?ABC:  Many people are living outside because they lost their housing due to the earthquake.  Other people are living outside even though they have housing because they are so scared and panicked they do not want to sleep in anything that is cement. When I was there, I felt at least seven shakings every day. Also there is fear of a tsunami, so everyone on the coast [where the epicenter was] is trying to go to the hills. When I went to the camps, the first thing I noticed is each has a couple of people as point persons who are very organized about how food was distributed. There are portable toilets, plenty of them. But I also saw things I did not want to see. There was a 72-year-old man who’d had major surgery two weeks before, because of cancer of the stomach. It was not the best hygiene situation for somebody who had an operation of that type!‘Our own people were taking care of our people’I traveled through the center of the island to Ponce where all these camps were established by community organizers, volunteers and also some landowners who allowed people to make camps on their land. I visited almost six of the camps; they were all close together.  I noticed that they had enough water, enough food, because the community had intervened — not because the government had intervened. The response of people from the north and the northeast [of the island] to the people affected was incredible. But it was Puerto Rican helping Puerto Rican, and there was no government. When I went there, they had trucks full of water and full of food and donations. They had people from the School of Psychology who volunteered to do interventions with children around post-traumatic stress disorder and trauma. After nurses finished their work day in the hospital, they went and volunteered in the camps. There were doctors volunteering.All was organized by Puerto Ricans and without the help of the government. Now the Puerto Rican government shows up for the pictures. To be seen in the newspapers.  But in each camp that I went to, there was an incredible sense of belonging. It was powerful. Although it was a critical situation, I saw the resilience of the Puerto Rican people and the love everybody was demonstrating for each other — intervening in each other’s lives. There was collective cooking; there was even a playground created for the children with toys. All produced by the people, all generated by the people’s organizing.  WW: Please talk about the role of women in response to the earthquake.  ABC:   I witnessed myself the incredible strength of the women organizing in both the [camp] community and also primarily organizing around the demonstrations in San Juan against the government.  It was so refreshing not to see men in front of everything. In the majority of the chanting, the organizing, the picket line, there were powerful Puerto Rican women. I also saw the women being point persons in the camps, and the linkages that people are making about women’s oppression and colonialism, patriarchy and capitalism. There are separate organizations for women that are very powerful and very confrontational and very political. They are not “polite!”It gave me a lot of hope because we suffered for so many years from the assumption of leadership by men. [It was good] to see the youth and women organizing, to see that they are trying to resolve grievances right there. Not sitting and discussing — they are resolving by doing. They are resolving by taking control, rather than “Let’s sit and talk about it.”  [Public] leadership is not something that PR women have been a part of; it has been a male problem in the left, and it continues to be a male problem.  [While I was in Puerto Rico,] there were major demonstrations in San Juan in front of the governor’s house demanding the resignation of the governor — because we found products never delivered to people during Maria. I consider the youth of Puerto Rico right now to be the vanguard because they are the ones who are being more militant. They are the ones protesting almost every day about the neglect of the government. I am just happy when I return to Puerto Rico. I just want to be part of this. I don’t want a leading position.  I want to be led by youth: “Tell me how I can be helpful.” I try to keep myself in check about not being paternalistic or being condescending.  That is something that is a part of patriarchy, and it is also part of the bad habits that sometimes you find in the left.  I think that is being corrected with action.  People have grievances, but the grievances don’t stay as grievances. You see the changes in the picket line; you see the changes in the demonstrations. You also see the creative way of doing politics. Sometimes we need innovations to keep things alive, and the youth have all kinds of ideas!  Next: Part 2 of Alberto Barreto’s interview: “PROMESA and the earthquakes.”last_img read more

Letterkenny General’s Chaplaincy team says all religions will be accommodated in refit

first_img Previous articleArmy EOD called to Burnfoot to deal with suspicious deviceNext articleRifle seized and man arrested following search of Ballyshannon house News Highland Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Letterkenny General Hospital’s Chaplaincy Team has this evening released a joint statement in response to ongoing speculation as to whether or not a Catholic Chapel will be retained at the hospital.There was further speculation today with newspaper reports that campaigners who want the chapel retained are concerned over its future following a meeting at the weekend.The HSE released a statement stating that it was always the executive’s intention tor retain a catholic chapel.And this evening members of the Chaplaincy Team (Fr Martin Chambers, RC Chaplain; Ms. Kathleen Doherty, HSE Lay Chaplain; Rev Stewart Wright, COI Chaplain) met today and issued the following statement of clarification:The Chaplaincy Team at Letterkenny General Hospital are delighted to confirm that in the spirit of Christian Unity all denominations will be fully accommodated in the new arrangements for public and private worship in the chapels which are to be created at the hospital.  They have outlined that they feel positive about the new facilities and are hopeful that they will now be able to meet the spiritual needs of staff, patients and their families more effectively than they ever did before.The Chaplaincy Team have explained that these new arrangements will include a Catholic Chapel in which the Blessed Sacrament will be present and which will feature the symbols of Catholic faith such as a Tabernacle, Stations of the cross and statues which will be permanently displayed.  There will also be an Ecumenical Chapel to cater for other Christian denominations including Church of Ireland, Presbyterian and Methodist Churches.  A chaplain’s office and a quiet room for counselling will also be included.  Currently members of the Muslim faith have access to a corridor in St Conal’s Hospital for Friday prayers and this arrangement will continue.The Team hope that this clarification will put an end to the unhelpful speculation and misinformation which has been in circulation and has been deeply upsetting for both them and those they minister to.  They wish to acknowledge the trauma and distress which was caused to the entire community by the flood at the hospital which resulted in there being no designated area to worship and the Team being displaced so they had to struggle in difficult circumstances to minister to the needs of those under their care.The Chaplaincy Team have, however, been actively engaged in negotiations with hospital management and the design team to ensure that the difficulties which they have been encountered resulted in a positive outcome for all those who wish to worship and have their spiritual needs met within the hospital.  They are confident that this partnership approach, has successfully achieved improved and enhanced facilities which will cater for all denominations.  They have worked together to represent the views of the entire spiritual community who use the hospital which has been both challenging and rewarding. In doing so they have created accommodation which is superior in design and layout to what existed previously and which respect and honours the spiritual needs of all.The Chaplaincy Team are presently engaged in finalising the proposed layout of the new chapels.  They look forward to welcoming all those they minister to in the coming months and they will continue to work to represent and meet their needs now and in the future.

King kept the torch lit when nobody was paying attention to the blues.Local blues singer, Lenny Trawick is carrying that torch today with the belief that the blues is music worth playing. It’s music worth singing and it’s music worth hearing.Trawick was the guest speaker/performer at the Brown Bag Lunch event Tuesday at the Tupper Lightfoot Memorial Library in Brundidge, his hometown. Trawick said he couldn’t answer that for sure but “Georgia on My Mind” is the state song of the Peach State.“We categorize music too much,” he said. “Willie Nelson wrote ‘Crazy’ and Patsy Cline recorded it. Country? Blues?” The music that Hank Williams wrote and sang was called white men’s blues. Hank Williams learned from a street musician in Montgomery. So his music had an element of blues in it but it was called country.”Trawick said blues is played in different ways in different places. “In New Orleans, a lot of blues is played on horns,” he said. “Up in Memphis, it’s played on guitars and out in Texas, it’s played on fiddles. Today, it’s strange but most blues is being played by whites.”Chris Rich mentioned St. Paul and Broken Bones and Shakes. Only a few in attendance recognized the Alabama R&B bands but did identify with Little Jimmy Reed of Enterprise who is now singing the blues around the world.“Little Jimmy Reed is popular in other countries but, not in many places around here,” Trawick said. “He plays at Troy Health and Rehab about once a month when he’s not traveling, but not many other places in this area.”The blues has been a part of the Southern culture since the early 1800s and Trawick said there’s no indication that the blue is going away.“Ray Charles said that you can’t write a song unless you have something to say,” Trawick said. “The blues has something to say.” Skip Trawick keeps singing the blues Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content Published 3:00 am Thursday, July 20, 2017 Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… By The Penny Hoarder You Might Like Trawick took his Brown Bag audience on a trip down memory lane with blues singers whose names ring a bell with most southerners whether or not they are blues fans. Names, like B.B King, Hoagy Carmichael, Ray Charles, Jimmy Reed and Louis Armstrong. And, some unfamiliar names like Buddy Johnson and his sister Ella Johnson and Annie Laurie.  And, some names that raised a few eyebrows – Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline and Hank Williams.“When Ray Charles recorded ‘Georgia on My Mind,’ some people said it was a country song,” Trawick said. “I disagree. It has all of the elements of a blues song.”Trawick was asked if ‘Georgia” was the state or a woman. “The words say ‘other arms reach out to me, other eyes smile tenderly,’ so I just wonder if it’s about a woman,” said Larry McLeod.

Fauci receives vaccine, says he’s ‘extremely confident’ it’s effective

first_imgPatrick Semansky-Pool/Getty ImagesBy STEPHANIE EBBS, ABC News(BETHESDA, Md.) — The country’s most prominent infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, received his first dose of Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday in a ceremonial event at the National Institutes of Health.The event was shown live on national television as part of an effort to reassure Americans that the vaccine was safe and effective.Fauci received his shot along with NIH Director Francis Collins and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar. They were joined by frontline health care workers at NIH who have been treating COVID-19 patients.Fauci said getting vaccinated is a double positive because he both wants to show the importance of getting the vaccine and celebrate the accomplishment of the lab in his division of NIH that worked on developing the Moderna vaccine.“It’s an important moment. We have worked as you probably know very hard,” he said in an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America.“I’ll be getting the Moderna vaccine. We just got a shipment in yesterday. I feel very good about it, because in a large part, that vaccine was developed by my group at the NIH. So, you know, it’s sort of a double positive. One, in general, I’m doing it because I want to symbolize to people the importance that everyone gets vaccinated who can get vaccinated, but also it’s a good feeling of accomplishment because this originated in laboratories in my institute.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
