Michael B. Curry, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, and the Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), have issued the following joint statement on 2016 World AIDS Day.World AIDS Day StatementDecember 1As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, we are reminded of the promise of life that was given to us, unconditionally. Scriptures teach us that God’s gift of life extends to all of us, no matter our circumstances. In the words of Apostle Paul, “So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvesttime, if we do not give up. So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all…” (Galatians 6:9-10).For many years, Lutherans, Episcopalians and other communities of faith have been engaged in efforts to provide care, treatment, prevention services, and have supported initiatives that fight stigma and discrimination towards those living with HIV. We mourn the 35 million lives lost to AIDS and, with 36.7 million people still living with HIV worldwide, our churches, our governments, and all other partners need to do more. We encourage Lutherans and Episcopalians near and far to stand in solidarity with all persons living with HIV, and to continue the difficult work of building an AIDS-free generation. We recommit ourselves to a future free of this pandemic.A challenge of this magnitude requires all our efforts. Inequitable access to the life-saving medications, healthy diet and other vital determinants for breaking the hold of this epidemic, continue to disproportionately impact persons of color. A significant piece of this work is to ensure that antiretroviral medications are available to everyone who needs it. Currently, less than half of people affected by HIV have access to these lifesaving medications. Studies have shown that when a person who is HIV+ takes antiretroviral medications continuously and correctly, their viral load can be suppressed to the point where they are no longer infectious. In other words, treatment is prevention. And so, we must expand our efforts in this area.We are called as people of faith actively to eliminate stigma and discrimination within our own faith communities and especially that which affects marginalized vulnerable and key populations (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people, sex workers, people who inject drugs, prisoners, migrants, women and girls). We must be steadfast in our defense of the dignity and human rights of all people living with HIV.As part of the sustainable development goals, which the United Nations adopted in September of 2015, the international community has committed to end the AIDS epidemic by the year 2030. Further commitments were made in June of this year when 192 countries meeting at the United Nations declared they will accelerate and scale up responses to HIV and AIDS to meet the goal of ending the epidemic by 2030. A critical pathway to this goal is the 90-90-90 strategy, which aims to ensure that by year 2020, 90% of those living with HIV will receive a diagnosis, 90% of persons living with HIV will receive antiretroviral medication, and 90% of those receiving antiretroviral will have their viral load suppressed.Lack of funding for HIV and AIDS programs remains a challenge. The goal of ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 will not be achieved if donor countries fail to address this funding gap. We call upon President-elect Donald Trump to make a public commitment to the global fight against HIV. We urge the new Administration and Congress to increase funding for PEPFAR; the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria; and domestic programs that provide preventive and treatment services in the United States.The Most Rev.

EatonPresiding BishopEvangelical Lutheran Church in America Rector Shreveport, LA New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Knoxville, TN December 2, 2016 at 1:36 am Thank you and bless you, Bishop Eaton and Bishop Curry, for reminding us all that HIV/AIDS is still a potent threat to the well-being of all humans. We pray that our work together, and with God’s great favor, will see the end of the scourge of HIV/AIDS.

Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. There is an old adage that the squeaking wheel gets the most oil. If you need proof that adage still rings true, consider where we are with food science research. Much of the time, the loudest are heard, regardless of qualifications, while the more informed and experienced are silenced.For instance, a particular celebrity used her visibility to help lead a movement of parents denying their children the proper vaccinations needed to keep them safe and healthy, resulting in a media frenzy. Scarily enough, a measles outbreak occurred at Disneyland last year, a disease that had effectively been eliminated because of vaccinations, but has seen a rising number of outbreaks in recent years.Similarly, a well-known food blogger, along with her online following, petitioned that Subway remove azodicarbonamide from its bread. Azodicarbonamide, or the “yoga mat chemical” as was the misnomer in the media, has been scientifically proven safe in foods at the very low levels at which it’s used. Regardless of the facts, thanks to the blogger’s online footprint, an Internet search of the ingredient results in two takeaways: it’s used in yoga mats and it might not be safe.So why don’t popular headlines support the science? In traditional media, you can attribute part of it to the current dearth of publications with actual science writers. In social media, where there is almost no commitment to objectivity, the average food blogger has come to realize that when it comes to food, we like nothing more than a good scare. This ought to change, but you probably can’t count on it.You need only look to carrageenan as a prime example of flawed science accepted as gospel. Naturally derived from red seaweed, carrageenan is used to stabilize many of the foods and drinks we consume every day, such as dairy beverages and desserts. There have been numerous studies performed that meet every scientific standard, all of which prove carrageenan’s safety. However, in today’s fearful environment, flawed studies that connect carrageenan to inflammation and diabetes are cited by everyone from your favorite aunt to traditional media.In some of these studies, carrageenan was tested on faulty cells that had considerable defects, a fact that was confirmed by the company who provided those cells. This supplier notified all affected parties of the mistake, yet neither scientists nor peer-reviewed journals that published these studies have yet to make any public clarification regarding this fundamental research flaw.Instead, we’ll continue to see these studies cited as legitimate. And we’ll continue to see studies cited that have experimented with the wrong material, or studies that inject carrageenan into the foot of an animal (rather than combining it with food), and other methodology sins.Bad science is not good for anyone. Those charged with informing us about the food sciences – either scientists themselves or the science media – are finding some audiences are now so skeptical of legitimate food science that they can only be filled with despair.The next time you see a new version of the food pyramid displayed, you might wonder why fear isn’t identified prominently as part of the modern diet.To learn about the proven science behind our food not found in the headlines, read Myra Weiner’s research paper in the peer-reviewed journal, Food and Chemical Toxicology.

UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Meaningful ways to support veterans, members of the military and their familiesAt the airport, you take a moment to thank a solider in uniform who is returning home. On Veterans Day, you hold up a sign at your town’s parade to let those who have served know how much you care. Throughout the year, whenever you encounter veterans or someone currently serving in the armed forces, you show your appreciation for their service.Most Americans truly feel grateful to U.S. service personnel and take steps to express that gratitude. But what do you do for the families of veterans and active-duty, guard and reserve personnel? In many ways, these families sacrifice as much as their loved ones in service to the country.It’s just as important to support military and veteran families; they are the reason their loved ones fight and their inspiration for returning home safely. Many military families cope with the emotional and physical injuries their loved ones in the service come home with. A stable, loving family can help a veteran make the difficult transition from active duty to civilian life, or help an active-duty person return home after deployment.These families face significant hardships in support of their loved ones in military service. Forty-three percent of military families have moved three or more times in the past 10 years, according to a survey of military families, conducted by Vet Tix. These frequent moves cause difficulties for children adjusting to new schools, spouses finding jobs, and making new friends.Everyone can make a difference for veterans, members of the military and their families. Here are ideas for meaningful ways to show your support:Help them make memories.Veterans’ and military families often face financial challenges that can make it difficult to afford simple luxuries other Americans take for granted, such as attending a concert, show or sporting event. The ticket price for a game can easily exceed $200 for a family of four. In fact, the Vet Tix survey found cost was the main reason military and veteran families were unable to participate in entertainment opportunities.You can help a military or veteran family make special memories and attend the show or event of their dreams by donating tickets or funds to Vet Tix. The organization provides tickets for sporting events, concerts, performing arts and family activities to verified members of all branches of currently serving military and veterans. The impact of the donation often goes far beyond a single day of fun.For example, a Vietnam veteran living in Florida used tickets from Vet Tix to help rebuild ties with his wife and children. After he successfully reconnected with his family and community, the man’s doctor wrote a letter to the organization thanking them for helping lower the veteran’s PTSD-related anxiety.“Many veterans face financial challenges while making the transition from military to civilian life,” says Joel DeLand, a U.S. Army veteran from Chicago. “Long-lasting psychological effects from military service can cause veterans to isolate themselves from others when they return home. I’ve personally used Vet-Tix-provided tickets to reconnect with friends by attending local events together.”Visit www.vettix.org to learn more and to make a donation.Help care for their best friendsWhen military service people deploy overseas, some will have to leave behind a beloved pet. Not everyone will have a family member or friend who is able and willing to take in the service person’s pet for an extended period of time.You can help by donating to an organization that fosters pets for active-duty military, such as Dogs on Deployment or Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet. You can also volunteer to foster a pet. These national organizations work to match members of the military who need foster care for their pets with families around the country willing to care for them. If you live near a military base, you can also contact the base’s command to see if they have a local program in place.Help care for the whole familyEvery member of a military or veteran family can benefit from support. You can help discharged veterans and military spouses by volunteering to be a career mentor. Contact the Armed Services YMCA to see if you can volunteer as a teacher’s aide for preschools and after-school programs that serve military families in your area.Reach out to your local veterans or military support organizations and ask about adopting a military family. “Adoption” can be as simple as writing personal emails or letters of support, or offering financial help for specific needs, such as buying school clothes and supplies for children, or gifts during the holidays.For a super-easy way to help, simply log on to Operation Homefront’s Amazon page where you can purchase and donate a backpack for a child in a military family.

The Co-operative Bank and online charity directory Charity Choice have launched an online donation service that is available, free of charge, to all UK registered charities.Charity Choice’s online directory attracts over 99,000 visitors each month, but very few of them were able to make donations to charities listed on the site because so few charities had the facilities for taking online donations.As a result Charity Choice, part of the Wilmington Group plc, approached the Co-operative Bank to establish an online donation service for all charities listed on the site.

Linkedin TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Men’s basketball scores season-low in NIT semifinals loss to Texas Twitter Garrett Podell printGary Patterson’s defense entered Saturday No. 1 in the Big 12 in essentially every statistical measure, but none of that mattered to Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield in the first half who tore TCU apart to the tune of 299 passing yards and three touchdowns, scoring 38 points in what-looked like a blowout victory over TCU at the half, 38-14.However, Patterson’s bunch buckled down in the second half, limiting the Sooners to 138 yards and no points in what ended with a 38-20 road defeat.Most of the Sooner signal-caller’s scoring occurred in the first half and was provided by OU running back Rodney Anderson. Anderson earned 203 total yards and four touchdowns, two rushing and two receiving in the first half.“Baker is a good player, and with Rodney Anderson we needed to do a better job of tackling and we didn’t do that,” Patterson said. “They have good players and you have to give their defense credit: we only scored 20 points.”The Horned Frogs also held themselves back in the first half, as they were called for a combined six penalties for 55 yards, including the ejection of defensive end Mat Boesen. OU’s Anderson ripped off back-to-back runs of 30 and 24 yards, the last one going for a touchdown immediately after Boesen’s disqualification. TCU also had their fast play of the night, a five-yard run by running back Kyle Hicks negated by an unnecessary roughness penalty from wide receiver John Diarse.“Can’t hurt yourself with penalties: look at the first series right out of the gate, you can’t let the game get too big and too emotional,” Patterson said. “If you do that, you get yourself in trouble.”Offensively, TCU’s night started out with a lot of promise, as the Horned Frogs took a 7-3 lead over Oklahoma after two plays on its second drive. Running back Kyle Hicks slipped past the Sooner defense on a wheel route for a gain of 62 yards, and running back Darius Anderson punctuated the possession with a 13-yard touchdown run up the middle in which he was untouched.The Horned Frog offense celebrates Darius Anderson’s 13-yard touchdown run in the first quarter against Oklahoma. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.comOutside of that first possession, TCU accumulated 176 yards the rest of the half for just seven more points, and Anderson suffered an injury just before halftime, as the Horned Frogs entered the locker room trailing by 24.TCU quarterback Kenny Hill said the turning point came early in the first quarter when OU regained the lead, 10-7.“After we missed a field goal and then we went three and out on the next drive, and then they went back and scored,” Hill said of when the game began to unravel. “You know it’s those stops early; we got to put up points early and we got to be able to match them.”After a scoreless third quarter, the Horned Frogs broke the drought with 10:44 remaining in the game on a three-yard touchdown pass from Hill to Hicks that cut the OU lead to 18, 38-20. However, TCU failed to pick up the two-point conversion that could’ve made it a two-possession game.Defensively, TCU looked like the conference’s top defense in the final 30 minutes, keeping Mayfield and company off the scoreboard. “I told them at the half you have a choice: either we were going to come out and play or we were going to scrimmage tomorrow and if they didn’t want to play, we were going to put pads on and have a scrimmage,” Patterson said. “Obviously, we did a little bit in the second half: they started with 38 at halftime and ended the game with 38, so I was proud of our guys they did that because it’s not like they sit on the ball.”InjuriesTCU kicker Jonathan Song, who is a perfect 8-8 on field goals this season, was on the sideline Saturday, but he didn’t kick against the Sooners.“Jonathan Song couldn’t go, and he couldn’t kick Thursday for whatever reason,” Patterson said. “So we brought him, and we thought he maybe could tonight, but he couldn’t, and we’re back to the kicking extravaganza.”Horned Frog running back Darius Anderson suffered a lower-body injury in the second quarter and did not return to action. Patterson said it was doubtful that Anderson would play against Texas Tech and Baylor, TCU’s last two opponents in the regular season.“He’s a big part of our offense, and when he touches the ball he can go the distance,” Hill said of Anderson. “But you know people got to step up; Kyle and Sewo will be ready to go, plus Snell will get some looks at practice. We just have to have someone to step up.”Up Next:TCU heads to Lubbock next for a matchup with Texas Tech while firmly entrenched in second place in the Big 12 standings after Iowa State’s loss at home against Oklahoma State. Provided the Horned Frogs win out, they could see the Sooners again this season in the Big 12 championship game December 2.“If we win our next two ball games, we have a possible opportunity to play that team again, but that starts with Texas Tech,” Patterson said. “Here we go.”The Horned Frogs head to Lubbock, TX to face the Texas Tech Red Raiders Saturday.

Training & Education Hollywood Movie Captain Phillips Premieres On Board HNLMS Johan de Witt November 5, 2013 The recently released Hollywood movie, Captain Phillips, held its Dutch premiere in a very special way. At the same time as the film was being shown in the Tuschinski theatre in Amsterdam, the movie was also being screened on the flight deck of the EU Naval Force flagship, HNLMS Johan de Witt during their during logistics visit to Muscat, Oman.The helicopter deck was turned into a movie theatre to enable the crew of HNLMS Johan de Witt to watch the movie, which tells the story of Richard Phillips, the captain of MV Maersk Alabama, who was held hostage by Somali pirates after they pirated the American flagged ship in April 2009. Member of the Netherlands media were also invited on board.Live connectionJust before the movie started in Amsterdam and Muscat, the Force Commander of Atalanta, Commodore Peter Lenselink, gave a live interview that was broadcast in to the Tuschinski theatre.Using a Skype connection, the host of the theatre interviewed Commander Lenselink about the premiere and the EU Naval Force’s counter piracy operation off Somalia. The Force Commander emphasized the success of Operation Atalanta but warned that piracy is not over yet: “If we leave the area now, the pirates will come back.” The words of the Force Commander were received with big applause in Amsterdam.Successful eventSpeaking about the event, the commanding officer of HNLMS Johan de Witt, Captain Frank Foreman said:“This premiere was a chance for my crew to have some rest and recuperation after a number of weeks at sea and after 3 months in the mission. I believe that the evening was more than just watching a movie. This movie contributes to the awareness of Somali piracy and the misery caused to the innocent crews and their families.”Media aboardHNLMS Johan de Witt sailed from Muscat with members of the Netherlands media on board, enabling them to report from the front line at sea on the EUNAVFOR mission and results of Operation Atalanta.[mappress]Press Release, November 05, 2013; Image: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today Hollywood Movie Captain Phillips Premieres On Board HNLMS Johan de Witt Share this article
