It was especially tricky when the Course had to be postponed (at the last minute) because of the conflict between Israel and Lebanon. Youth from my parish had an absolutely spectacular experience in the Holy Land, in large measure due to Michael’s assistance and presence.

That was my first or second year as an Episcopalian and he helped me to shape much of what I expected from my relation with the church. In a short time he became close to my family and we were glad to have him with us. I found in Michael not only a friend I could always rely on but a “spiritual mentor” as well.His laugh will always be among my most cherish memories. He had such a simple approach to life but still a very sophisticated sense of humor, this combination allowed him to extract and share many great lessons from everything around him.I was with Michael when he started his diagnosis. Although he was afraid of the outcome, he was so strong and wise through this entire situation. Even in his last moments he was a beautiful and amazing blessing from God in our lives.I´ll miss his words, his gravitational presence and most of all his laugh… but I´m not sad because I´m sure we will meet him again.Rest in Peace meu amigo, abraços.

General strike in Italy says ‘No’ to referendum

first_imgThe following article was submitted to Workers World by the organization Fronte Popolare (Popular Front) in Italy.Some 1.3 million workers participated in a general strike on Oct. 21, the first of two important days of mass workers’ struggle in Italy.The workers were called out by the United Rank-and-File Union (USB), a member of the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) and other grass-roots trade unions.The goal of the one-day strike was to give class-based content to a “No” vote on the Dec. 4 referendum on constitutional reform, proposed by the Democratic Party government of Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.The reform has been openly endorsed by President Barack Obama and the U.S. ambassador in Rome, who openly attempted to pressure the Italian people by threatening to stop investments in case of a “No” victory. The German government, the European Union, the Italian Employers’ Association, the big banks and the rating agencies also back a “Yes” vote because the reform would further strengthen governmental powers and promise faster approval of the new anti-popular measures in progress.On Oct. 22 more than 40,000 people from unions and organizations of the alternative left — movements that fight for the right to a home, in defense of the land and against privatizations — marched together in the streets of Rome. Their goal was to give birth to a social coalition defining the “No” campaign as clear opposition to the anti-popular measures dictated by the European Union.Until these two successive days of struggle, the anti-corruption and eurosceptic Five-Star Movement led by comedian Beppe Grillo and reactionary forces like the Northern League and Berlusconi’s Forza Italia have had the leadership of the “No” campaign, using it against the Renzi government.Workers’ organizations want to take charge so that any struggle against Constitutional reform will also oppose Renzi’s anti-worker measures such as his “Jobs Act” law. This law makes layoffs much easier, completing the destruction of the “Workers Statute,” which was gained in 1970 after relentless workers’ struggles.We, in Fronte Popolare, consider the EU an irreformable institution, created to facilitate the destruction of workers’ rights. The EU deepens the inequalities between European countries (benefiting Germany in particular) by means of the common currency and keeps the EU subject to U.S. imperialism in foreign politics.Every attempt to bring about progressive changes and depart from the disastrous austerity fanaticism without questioning the EU itself is destined to failure and betrayal, as the case of Greece exemplifies.The reconquest of national sovereignty is now a precondition for any real progressive change in Italy.We, as Fronte Popolare, participated with conviction in both these events, continuing to work toward a reunification of left trade unions in Italy, still too divided, so that the organizations fighting for a real alternative and for a breakup of the EU come together in a unified front of struggle.The forces are still too little; the road to rebuild a real social and political alternative in Italy is still long and arduous, but we are convinced that, finally, after the errors and betrayals of past years, the direction is now correct.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

These free public events are the heart and soul of our organization,” Brunet said. “New members typically come to us to find others to bird with. It’s the best way to learn about birds and to discover great birding haunts. We’ve of course had to call these off and we all miss the company of other birders.”Monthly lectures on birds and conservation-related topics continued, but have moved online.“We’ve had terrific attendance, with the added bonus of reconnecting with old members from out of state,” she said.The organization’s elementary school Bird Science Program, which previously included two classroom visits and a field trip, has also been adapted to an online format, Brunet explained.This fall we created a video library of lessons and plan to make these available to even more schools as well as homeschooling families,” she said. “So in some ways, we may even extend our reach this year, though our docents and volunteers very much miss taking the kids birding and watching their delight as they discover the birds that surround us.”In another pandemic-related trend, Brunet said more people seem to be taking more notice of their feathered neighbors.“With so many folks working from home, we’ve seen lots of interest in adding bird feeders and in backyard birding,” she said. “This is a great place to start for new birders and many go from feeders to native plant gardens, which provide the healthiest and most natural food to our feathered friends. It’s been great having these conversations with members and non-members alike.”More information on the Pasadena Audubon Society is available online at pasadenaaudubon.org.

So what is preventing these Americans from making their dream a reality?According to NAR, it’s affordability.“The lack of affordable and moderately priced homes has forced non-homeowners to delay achieving that part of the American Dream,” said Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at NAR with Monday’s release of the Aspiring Home Buyers Profile.“However,” he added, “as the survey confirms, significant lifestyle changes like marriage or starting a family often spur non-owners to pursue homeownership.”In the fourth quarter of 2018, 43 percent of non-owners cited affordability as their primary reason for not owning a home, down from 49 percent in the third quarter but still ranking as the No. 1 reason for not owning a home.Thirty-three percent of non-owners cited “current life circumstances” as their reason for foregoing ownership for the time being, and 16 percent said they would wait to purchase a home because they need “the flexibility of renting” right now, according to NAR.The share of non-homeowners who feel now is a good time to buy a home waned over the year, starting at 51 percent in the first quarter and ending the year at 47 percent in the fourth quarter.Non-owners who said now is a good time to purchase a home spanned all age, income, and city size brackets, except in the West where non-owners were slightly more pessimistic, NAR pointed out.Meanwhile, the share of homeowners who feel now is a good time to purchase a home hovered between 69 and 73 percent in 2018, ending the year at 72 percent.“While home sales were slightly down in 2018, there is still a sizable pent-up housing demand,” Yun pointed out. “Economic growth, interest rates, and the supply of moderately-priced homes will dictate how well the real estate industry will do this year.”NAR also questioned survey respondents about opening their homes to their adult children or other adults and how that has impacted their outlook on their homes. Eleven percent of homeowners had an adult move into their home in the past year, while five percent of non-owners reported the same. Of those, 44 percent said that adult plans to stay for more than a year or permanently.Twelve percent of those who had an adult move into their home have considered moving or did move because they feel their housing is now “inadequate,” according to NAR’s survey.

Super-Priority Issues Linger in D.C.

Tagged with: Condominiums Court of Appeals foreclosure sale Lease Legal Lenders mortgage Servicers Previous: Delaying the American Dream Next: A Volatile Q4 for Big Banks Editor’s Note: This article originally featured in the January issue of DS News, out now.With the issuance of its decision in Chase Plaza Condominium Ass’n v. JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A., 98 A.3d 166, (D.C. 2014), the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia upended the established manner in which condominium liens have been handled in the District. In Chase Plaza, the court interpreted D.C. Code §42-1901 and its provisions regarding the six-month “super-priority” of a condominium association lien to wipe out a mortgage lender, including those in “first” position. As a result of this decision, a number of related cases have been working their way through the Superior Court to the Court of Appeals. In Liu v. U.S. Bank, N.A. 179 A.3d 871 (D.C. 2018), the court once again ruled in favor of third-party purchasers at a condominium association’s foreclosure auction and against the mortgage lender, despite notice to all potential buyers that the sale was to be conducted “subject to the first mortgage or deed of trust.”In Liu, the court discounted arguments of equitable estoppel put forth by the lender and ruled that the statute specifically prohibited the ability of the condominium association to “waive” the super-priority status per D.C. Code. §42-1901.07. At the time, the court apparently offered hope to lenders as the court did not address the issue of a “split-lien” and how it might rule in the event that the condominium lien at issue was longer than six months. However, that issue was addressed quickly thereafter in 4700 Conn 305 Trust v. Capital One, N.A., No. 16-CV-977, CAR-593-15, September 13, 2018. In 4700 Conn, the court ruled that the fact that a condominium lien was for more than six months did not constitute a difference for the purposes of interpreting the statute. The lender once again was faced with a situation where its lien was extinguished by the court.How then, are lenders to move forward? One apparent avenue of assistance was the Condominium Owner Bill of Rights and Responsibilities Amendment Act of 2016. This legislation anticipated and directly addressed the issues that arose out of Chase Plaza and its progeny by specifically requiring that a condominium association send notice to any holder of a first deed of trust or first mortgage of record, their successors and assigns, etc. More importantly, it required the association to expressly state whether the foreclosure sale is either 1) for the six-month priority lien, not subject to the first deed of trust, or 2) for more than the six-month priority lien, which is subject to the first deed of trust. However, the court has also called into question the validity of this legislation. Once again, the court does not directly address the effect of this particular statute and leaves it to future cases.This sequence of decisions would indicate a continual pattern by the court to reinforce its decision in Chase Plaza. Currently, the litigation in 4700 Conn is moving back to the trial court to address issues related to a sale price that was significantly below the value of both the property and the mortgage and whether or not the condominium foreclosure should be invalidated based upon the “erroneous” belief that the sale was subject to the first deed of trust. Lenders should be cautious moving forward, however, as to the apparent opening left by the Court of Appeals. The court seems eager to rule on the enforceability of notice conditions on current and future condominium associations, and the court may disappoint lenders yet again upon reviewing a decision in 4700 Conn, even if the trial court invalidates the condominium sale due to unconscionability or other equitable grounds.

Life-threatening tornado outbreak, flash flooding possible Monday in Southern Plains

first_imgABC News(WASHINGTON) — The second day of an outbreak of severe weather Saturday brought 10 reported tornadoes to to the Plains, part of 38 reported tornadoes since Friday.In addition to the tornadoes, widespread damaging winds have been reported, with gusts as high as 78 mph in parts of Oklahoma on Saturday.There was a tornado watch in effect Sunday morning for parts of Louisiana and Mississippi until 10 a.m. Central time as a line of powerful storms with widespread damaging winds moved through the region. There were reports of a dangerous and large tornado in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana, early Sunday morning.The severe risk will be less intense Sunday, but it will move east into some major population areas. However, attention will turn immediately to the next system, which will bring another round of severe weather.On Monday, a new system will develop off the High Plains and slide east into the Southern Plains. The dry line will interact with an increasingly moist and unstable air mass that will develop across parts of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.Unfortunately, that means very favorable conditions for violent severe weather in parts of this region.There is a moderate risk for severe weather in parts of Oklahoma and Texas, including Oklahoma City, on Monday. There is a chance for violent, long-track tornadoes, destructive winds and very large hail in this region. Additionally, damaging winds, large hail and strong tornadoes will be possible across parts of the Southern Plains from Midland, Texas, to Wichita, Kansas.In addition to the severe weather threat, torrential rain will likely cause flash flooding, especially in parts of this region already saturated from storm activity the last few months.Locally, 4 to 6 inches of rain is possible in parts of the Southern Plains over the next few days. Torrential rain, causing flash flooding, combined with potentially extremely dangerous severe weather, will likely make this a life-threatening weather event in parts of this region.The severe weather threat will move into parts of eastern Texas to western Illinois on Tuesday. However, the atmosphere will begin to lose some of the ingredients that are needed to have widespread intense severe weather.Meanwhile, there is a separate severe weather threat on Sunday for parts of the Midwest and Northeast, including parts of the Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia metro areas.Storms will likely fire up during the afternoon and persist into the evening hours. Damaging winds, large hail and brief tornadoes are possible.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Juvenile morphology of the large Antarctic canopy-forming brown alga, Desmarestia menziesii J. Agardh

first_imgFor many types of seaweeds in Polar Regions, open questions remain about how their life cycle contributes to their overall adaptation to the extreme abiotic environment. This applies in particular to the major canopy-forming brown algae in much of the Antarctic Peninsula of the genus Desmarestia, which was investigated here. Diving surveys around Rothera Research Station (Adelaide Island, Antarctica) during December 2017–February 2018 revealed the widespread presence of a hitherto-unknown life form of Desmarestia sp. of a tender, feather-like morphology. Further studies explored whether this could be (1) a new, hitherto undescribed Desmarestia species (2) a new record for the region of a known Desmarestia species previously recorded elsewhere or (3) a so-far unknown life form of a species recorded for the region. Collections enabled the extraction of PCR-friendly DNA and sequencing of ITS1, which unambiguously showed that the samples belonged to Desmarestia menziesii, the only Desmarestia species presently recorded for the Adelaide Island/Marguerite Bay region. The presence of the juvenile morphology was subsequently confirmed throughout much of the natural range of D. menziesii during cruise-based diving surveys along the Western Antarctic Peninsula in 2019 and from collections at Anvers Island in 1989. Our collections thus constitute its juvenile morphology, which is not previously documented in the literature. The wider significance for the Polar seaweeds is discussed in the context of Taxonomy and Ecology.last_img read more
